Discussion

Today I just want to talk. If you have ever looked through my blog site. You will see this a lot in the over 850 posts that are in it.

You may have noticed that God is large part in my life. There are those out there that call God “imaginary.”

To those that say this I actually feel sorry for you. You have closed off yourself to the possibility that there is God. That there is a supreme being that promised eternal life to all of humanity including you.

Yes you.

Now hear me out. You guys post that we that believe in God are weird. Strange. You are determined to look down upon us and belittle us. We, however, look at you as our equals. Fellow humans seeking answers to questions that are difficult if not impossible to answer.

People have this strange misunderstanding that what they call the after life will be sitting around being happy happy joy joy and doing nothing. This is a lie. And yes that was a movie reference if you caught it.

Is there a heaven? Yes, there is. However, it is not what we are promised for all our eternal life. This “heaven” is only a temporary holding area to what is the real promise. We are told we will be servants unto God. Servants perform tasks and duties. We are told there will be new heavens and a new earth. Or as I like to refer to it as a second big bang.  It is here that these assigned tasks will be fulfilled. As well as helping Jesus Christ reign as King of this world for one thousand years, before that new universe is created by our Creator: God.

We will do these tasks alive in a body that does not age. Does not get sick. It is the elevation of a species you see many times portrayed in Sci-Fi movies and television shows. Except in them it is only for those that live after us. It is never for us. It is never for you. That is the ultimate lie.

It is for you. It is for every single human that has ever lived or will live. It is for those that were and are killed before they even see the light of day. It is for those that have lived to an old age. It is for those that are killed in accidents. It is for those that were killed in wars or in crimes.

But the problem is. They must accept God is real. They must accept Jesus lived and died for us all.

Now I know why this is a problem for you. You want to be in control. You wish to rule your own life. You do not wish things you perceive as greater than you are controlling how you think or what you do. The thing is you already live that very way.

You do this every time you join in with how others think and behave. You did it the moment you accepted that God is an “imaginary friend.” This is verified by the fact that most times people wish to confront and demean the way Christians think those two words appear. Time and time again. You have just joined in with something greater than yourself. You are allowing something that gives the image it is greater than you to control the way you think and comprehend things. You are not living freely. You have joined in with the crowd that has fun belittling those they see as lesser than themselves.

Those that truly follow the teachings of Jesus Christ do not belittle others. Those that do and call themselves “Christian” are really not, to be very honest with you. They may think they are, but their actions say otherwise. Any who look down upon other humans do not know the true value of a human life. Any human life.

Christianity teaches the equality of all humanity. Young, old. Born or unborn. Of any race, creed or belief. This is one thing that those that challenge this truth use it to challenge Christianity.

Now why do I say this?

In many cases those that challenge Christianity bring up past behavior of humanity. Now we need to distinguish an important fact. Just because a person acts in what they call “Christianity” does not mean they are a true follower of Jesus Christ. It just means they were raised with teachings that came from the Bible. Does this make them truly “Christian?” No, it does not. And since this does not make them truly Christian. Then you can not use that as an excuse for the behavior of a human if that human performs actions that can be seen as a crime against a fellow human or humans. Yet time and again this is an excuse that is used and when someone tries to explain this point to those that wish to show Christianity as evil.

All they accomplish in showing is that humans are evil. Not Christianity. The Bible teaches that all humans ARE evil. ALL have the ability to perform acts and actions that can been seen by others as horrific. True Christianity allows humans the ability to escape their human weaknesses and faults. To end what is called their sins. Again, this is something that those that wish to place the blame of all the cruelty upon a religion. A religion that was the predominate religion of the known world at that time.

Here is the issue.

I can name multiple times in history that humans. Sometimes in the name of Christianity. Have done actions in the name of what they believed to be their faith. However, in reality they were done in actions of power, greed, lust and outright evil. All of which are called sins in the Bible and seen of as wrong and something to feel guilt and sorrow over. Something to seek forgiveness for. Something to ask for a higher power to give leniency and forgiveness for. Yet those that performed these atrocities never asked for true forgiveness. Many living in a belief that they were in the right. In reality they were not.

Another excuse to deny God and Jesus comes from those that say Jesus never lived. These people are not students of true history. Josephus was a historian of Jewish decent that wrote for the Romans. His loyalty was to Rome, not to the people of his birth. He wrote of Jesus Christ.

Archaeologist have found locations that correspond to the Bible. As will as the remains of people within the Bible. Like for example the leader of the Pharisees: Caiaphas. Additionally, we have those that wrote the New Testament. Paul, Peter, John, and James. Roman documents show the fate of these men. How they died and what punishments they endured.

Scholars have come to this conclusion. Myths do not come into existence until those people that knew them are no longer alive. Thus, myths do not begin until one hundred and fifty years after the historical figure has died. Here is the rub. The first letters that formed the New Testament came into being in less than twenty years after Jesus left. The last to came into being and was finished before the turn of the first century. This means the New Testament was written in under seventy years after Christ ascended. Well within the lifetime of those that knew and saw Jesus Christ. Giving these people ample time and ability to show Jesus as a fake. None of this occurred. So, Jesus being a myth and a fairytale is a fallacy created by those that wish to control and subjugate. Those they wish to dominate and manipulate. In other words, rule over those that listen to them.

The Bible says that those that let sin be their master wish to have others join them. They wish to have others join in their sorrow and the chains they have placed upon themselves. However, they don’t see it because all they can focus on is the here and now. The joy and exhilaration. The euphoria that comes with some sins. Makes people desire to bring others into the fold. They don’t care about the consequences. They just relish the physical rush of this temporal world they see as their life.

Those that have created this falsehood that there is no God. That Jesus did not exist. Have also pushed a fable that all there is to life is this short one hundred years we live. That we must seek to create a name for ourselves through our actions or our progeny a legacy. As you look back throughout history you can see this is a predominate theme of all of humanity.

Why does this theme exist?

Because people have lost the true meaning or understanding of the Bible. This is mainly due to most not even reading it and taking the words of others they see as more aware than they are of what is shown and meant within this book. That is why it is so important to actually study the Bible. Not just read it. There are many that read the Bible, and they include those that oppose it. They pick a statement here or a wording there. Then turn and use it as a way of denying God or have shown the “flaws” within the Bible.

A prime example of this is shown when the Reformation occurred in 1517. What caused this to take place was false teachings being pushed out by the Catholic Church. Like the use of items called “relics” and papers called “indulgences.” They had to win their way out of the church made “purgatory.” People were not allowed to think for themselves. They must conform totally and solely to the edicts of the Pope, the cardinals, bishops and their priests.

In this time, it was actually illegal for the common man to come to know the Bible for themselves. It was also impossible for the commoner to read the Bible. It took another hundred years and the printing press to help allow humanity to come into possession of the Bible. This freedom caused the Puritans to come into being. Those that adhered more closely to the teachings of the Bible than those before them. Yet they too as time went by faltered. Again, allowing others to tell them how to think, feel and live.

We now live in a time when all can freely and willingly read and study the Bible for themselves. Yet they don’t. Many do this because people they look up to say it is fable, a fairytale. I heard these words myself leave the lips of a Methodist priest. When even those within the church call the words within the Bible fairytales. The corruption that causes people to think that there is no eternal life has bled into the churches themselves. It is no wonder that people no longer acknowledge there is God and that His one and only Son took our sins upon Himself and died in our stead. So that we may live an eternal life in the service to God.

No human is greater than any other human. We should not look up to others. Just as others should not look down upon others. All are servants to all.

There is an eternal life.

“There is no eternal life.” Someone just insisted. “There is only blackness.” Another just said.

I have experienced blackness. In a dream from God. In this dream this blackness seemed to last forever. In this dream I was falling ever falling in this blackness. As I fell a light began to show below me. Not only a light, but motion. The ground was moving. As I fell, I saw that it was humans. Uncountable humans all in misery. All living in eternal judgement. This is your blackness. The beginning of an eternal life in pain and suffering. So, there is eternal life not only for the righteous, but also for those that have turned against God and called Him a fallacy. An eternal life that begins in the opposite of that for those that accept God. They see light, those that reject Him see darkness.

I say these words. In hopes that you will awaken from the control of others and accept your freedom promised through salvation. All you need do is to accept that we are not in control. Even those that think they are in control are not. They are just tool. For God knows all a person has done, And God Himself places people into power. Even those leaders that have committed atrocities. Like for example Hitler. It was his orders that led to over thirteen million killed in concentration camp. It was six million of those killed that led the Jewish people back to their homeland. And so, they reestablished the nation of Israel. The only nation to ever do this.

God Bless

The lust to deny God


Most in humanity desire to deny God. Most in humanity desire to be in control, even those that belief they are Christian desire this deep down but will never truly admit it. This is what the Bible says about this desire:
Romans 1:18 – But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. 19 They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
In a video series called the “Big Think” the renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku made another of his theoretical statements, but within it he mentioned God and that God is a mathematician. This is not all he said though with this video.
He stated some things that need to be mentioned and expanded upon. First he makes a statement that still shows he is either appealing toward those that belief in evolution or still believes it himself. For he mentions humanity evolving from apes. This is all part of the lust to deny God and place humanity at the center. If you look throughout history humanity has always in some form strived to have humanity at the core of existence and is even still present today in many forms. Example and keeping in theme with science take Star Trek. A show built upon theoretical science. Earth or humanity is the only planet from which even though flawed and corrupt and doesn’t always do things right a majority of alien races sees their organization that this flawed humanity created as the saving force for all life in the universe. This is the lust to deny God.
What I did find interesting in the video was his mention of how math and physics separated and mathematicians were excited to make themselves useless, going to the belief of multi-dimensions. Mr. Kaku then shows how physics once again married into math and came into agreement with the math that that mathematicians were so proud that they have left reality or God behind. Yet if you read the Bible with science in mind you can see that it was inevitable that math and physics would meet again thus making it impossible for any to deny God, which is in essence what came at the end of the video with Mr. Kaku. For the Bible has made it very clear since it was first written that there are and always has been multi-dimensions. For can you see Heaven? Can you see the throne of God? Can you see God right this minute? Does the Bible not state clearly that there is a continual spiritual war going on that is not able to be seen by humanity in this temporal dimension? This is what the Bible says:
Romans 1:21 – Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. 23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.
This is what these verses were stating that those that lust to deny God seek to do. For they fear to accept that God is real. So what does it say God has done due to this lust?
Romans 1:24 – So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. 25 They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. 26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved. 28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. 29 Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. 30 They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They invent new ways of sinning, and they disobey their parents. 31 They refuse to understand, break their promises, are heartless, and have no mercy. 32 They know God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.
Welcome to the world we now live within. A world that lusts after eternal damnation. A world full of humans that lusts to live of and in the world. Lusting to deny God for to do otherwise would destroy their desires and lust that they prefer over their Creator.
End the lust of denial and seek after the blood shed upon the cross. Ask the Son of God to wash you in it and to leave your lusts and desires for this temporal life behind. Lust instead for the eternal and everlasting joy of serving God throughout ALL of his wondrous and vast creation, the universe.

“I think the church is a sleeping giant that needs to wakeup.” My view of this statement


This quote is from Greg Laurie. Personally never hear of the man, nor do I know when he made this statement. All I can say is that if the church is still asleep today, it is dead.
Why do I say this?
No true Christian would support a group that denies God. This has been documented to be where the Democratic Party stands, yet there are those that call themselves “Christian” and still vote and support Democrats.
Matthew 10:33 – “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”
No true Christian would support Abortion, especially after the videos that came out last year stating that Planned Parenthood was cutting up babies and selling their body parts. This IS human sacrifice and any that would call themselves “Christian” and support this are an insult to God every time they say they are “Christian.”
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 – “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
No true Christian would tell sinners it is ok to live in sin because God loves them. It is true that God does love them, but per Proverbs 13:24 – “He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.” So yes love them, but in that love tell them that if they do not stop living in sin, no matter how painful it is for them to stop, then they will not make it into heaven.
1 Corinthians 6:9 – “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived….”
If we are awake we will do what is right in the Lord and put away from us those that deny God.
2 Thessalonians 3:14-15 – “And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.”
2 Timothy 4:1-5 – “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”
Matthew 5:10-12 – “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”
