Discussion

One of the greatest misunderstandings within Christianity and in fact all of humanity is the knowledge that God’s part of the relationship is complete and eternal. The other part of the relationship. Our part is the problem. This is the mistake.

People lean on the first part of the relationship. They place all upon it. However, most ignore the other part. They assume all is fine due to the first part and do nothing on their part in the relationship. It has been this way before Jesus was born and after He ascended.

Time and again the words “self-control” are seen in the New Testament. This points to the latter part of the relationship. Time and again there are verses that show we can lose our relationship with God.  Nevertheless, people turn to the former part of the relationship saying they are fine and okay with God. All because it states that God’s love is eternal. The Bible clearly states that God’s love is this way. None can argue this. None should.

Due to this though people ignore verses that state we can be separated from God. The most important of this is found in John 15:

John 15:1-10 – “I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. 3 You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. 4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. 5 “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. 6 Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. 7 But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! 8 When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father. 9 “I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. 10 When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.

Please note the first two verses. The “my Father,” is God. It clearly states that “He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit.” This is a clear statement of separation from God. Done by who? God Himself. Also when asking for anything it must be within Gold’s plan. Earthly wealth and possessions are not in God’s plan for all of this earth will be destroyed. (Isaiah 65:17)

As this chapter continues, we are given a construct that cannot be challenged or denied. Jesus makes it clear that He is the Vine. And if you are saved you are a branch upon this vine. It someone does not follow the laws given within the Bible they are cut from the vine and are cast into the fire.

Another misconception that needs to be addressed comes from those that wish to deny God. Those that are in this group say thinks like: “Why would God allow this to happen?” or “All the terrible things that have occurred was due to Christianity!”

First, I must direct you back to the first misunderstanding. This is the key to it all. People lean on this belief that they can do anything in the name of God. Even ignoring the laws within the Bible. Believing all the time that just because God’s love for all of humanity will cover their sins. No matter how great or more accurately how horrifying their sins are.

Just because someone says they are acting upon their “faith” or in their “god.” For those listening I just used a small “g” for god not a capital “G,” just for the record.

Does not mean they are acting within the confines of “Christianity.” In fact, if someone actually knew the Bible, they would know that acts which destroy are not acts of “Christianity” at all. They are the behavior and actions of humans doing what they wish to do for their own betterment within this short temporal existence we all now live within. Which is directly opposite the true teachings found within the Bible.

The Crusades were not of or commanded by God, but of men seeking wealth greed and riches. The conquest of the South and North American continents was also due to this very lust for treasures here on earth as well as leaving a legacy behind for all of humanity to remember their names. Any who seek after things of this world in the name of a religion are not doing so for their faith but for themselves. Many will say that it is due to Christianity that 30 million people are dead. I can counter with saying nearly 200 million are dead due to people not following a religion, but their own social justice morals known as Socialism. We can play at word games like this all day long.

What is important is coming to understand that a human’s actions that go counter to the teaching that are found within the Bible. Even though they profess to being “Christian.” Does not and never will make them Christian, but what they truly are. Heathens and the basest of humanity. Those that only live for their own wants, lusts, and desires. Those that in reality do not live to serve God, but themselves. Using God as an excuse to justify their own sins in their own eyes. Yet all the time relishing what they do for it makes them feel superior and greater for they are the ones in the right, in their eyes.

Another misconception is that we should seek after wealth here in this temporal reality. This again is the furthest thing from the teachings of the Bible. The other day I was instructed in a dream to once again emphasize the importance that if we profess to being a follower of Jesus Christ that we should shed our worldly possessions from our lives as quickly as possible. Why? Because something is going to happen soon that most are truly not prepared for. The return of Jesus Christ.

As I have discussed in one of my earliest of Bible studies. The letters to the seven churches in the Book of Revelation are also chronological. That being said. The last letter specifically addresses those that seek after wealth. It is made clear that the Glorified Jesus Christ wishes us to realize that those that seek after riches here on earth are actually counted amongst the “lukewarm.” Another name of someone that is lukewarm is a hypocrite. Christ despises hypocrisy.

He made it clear that those that are lukewarm are spit out from His Body. For they are seen as worse than those that deny and hate Him openly. Can you see that comparison? Someone who openly flaunts their sins for all the world to see. Is seen as higher in God’s eyes than someone who is of the lukewarm.

Yet millions live their lives in this very manner and truly believe they are one with God though Jesus Christ. This is how the Pharisees lived and believed as well. And what did they do when they were confronted with the Son of God? They crucified Him, and you wonder why Christianity is looked down upon. All due to those that are in reality the lukewarm.

So, what must be done to correct these misunderstandings? These misconceptions.

First and foremost. To acknowledge that all that do these things are living in sin and not living truly for God and the teachings within the Bible, but for themselves and their own selfish wants and desires.

Next, they must seek true repentance. To repent means to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the improvement of one’s life. Meaning to cast out sin. All sin from our lives. Yet we must accept that we live in sin or be like those mentions in Hebrews chapter 6.

Hebrews 6:4-6 – For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened—those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come— 6 and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding him up to public shame.

Many will scoff at my words saying they are fine with God for they have known the blessings of His salvation, not realizing they themselves have rejected Him, after having found Him and replacing Him for the things of the world instead. I will let Peter speak now:

2 Peter 3:1-18 – This is my second letter to you, dear friends, and in both of them I have tried to stimulate your wholesome thinking and refresh your memory. 2 I want you to remember what the holy prophets said long ago and what our Lord and Savior commanded through your apostles. 3 Most importantly, I want to remind you that in the last days scoffers will come, mocking the truth and following their own desires. 4 They will say, “What happened to the promise that Jesus is coming again? From before the times of our ancestors, everything has remained the same since the world was first created.” 5 They deliberately forget that God made the heavens long ago by the word of his command, and he brought the earth out from the water and surrounded it with water. 6 Then he used the water to destroy the ancient world with a mighty flood. 7 And by the same word, the present heavens and earth have been stored up for fire. They are being kept for the day of judgment, when ungodly people will be destroyed. 8 But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day. 9 The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment. 11 Since everything around us is going to be destroyed like this, what holy and godly lives you should live, 12 looking forward to the day of God and hurrying it along. On that day, he will set the heavens on fire, and the elements will melt away in the flames. 13 But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world filled with God’s righteousness. 14 And so, dear friends, while you are waiting for these things to happen, make every effort to be found living peaceful lives that are pure and blameless in his sight. 15 And remember, our Lord’s patience gives people time to be saved. This is what our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you with the wisdom God gave him— 16 speaking of these things in all of his letters. Some of his comments are hard to understand, and those who are ignorant and unstable have twisted his letters to mean something quite different, just as they do with other parts of Scripture. And this will result in their destruction. 17 You already know these things, dear friends. So be on guard; then you will not be carried away by the errors of these wicked people and lose your own secure footing. 18 Rather, you must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All glory to him, both now and forever! Amen.

Accept that we can loss our salvation for this is found within the Bible. Accept that people pervert the Word of God for their own glory and lusts for the world for there is prove of this within the Bible. Accept that we are not on this earth to seek after wealth and legacy here in this temporal plain of existence for we are told to shun it within the Bible.

Accept that we are to turn to Jesus Christ as our Savior and to follow ALL the teachings that are found within the Bible that will lead us to our ultimate goal. A goal that is not found here on earth, but first in heaven then finally in the new heavens and earth that is to come. Which we will live within as we live now, but sin free and for billions upon billions of years.

God Bless

The false image of humanity and Christianity


One of the complaints that comes up when people state that the United States is a “Christian nation.”
Is what happened to the Native Americas at the hands of those that came from Europe to make this nation and the subsequent expansion to the lower forty-eight states of this nation.
Here is what people do not wish to acknowledge or know.
Mark 7:20 – And then he added, “It is what comes from inside that defiles you. 21 For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. 23 All these vile things come from within; they are what defile you.”
They assume because people profess to be “Christian” that they are acting under the direction of God. When as you can tell from these verses the evil that humanity has done to other humans comes from themselves, not God.
So to blame Christianity for the crimes and misdeeds of humanity is not only an injustice to God, but is a lie and another type of excuse to allow people to live freely in sin.
Should humanity have done the evil they have done throughout all the ages man has walked upon this earth? No.
But to throw the blame upon God, His Son or Christianity is false and wrong for any to do.
Time and again the people of Israel are shown that they themselves turned their backs upon God so that they could live in sin. To worship idols. To attack their own neighbors out of their own hatred, selfishness and greed.
None of this is taught within the Bible.
Jesus taught to love thy neighbor as you would love yourself.
This means that when they forced Native Americans from their lands they were showing that in reality they hated themselves and due to their self-hatred sought after ways to make themselves feel better about themselves by denigrating others. You can see this very act being done by those that deny and say they hate God and Christianity. It is not Christians they hate but themselves and they seek solace for their own self-loathing unaware that they are attacking the very source that can give them what they truly and deeply seek.
They have no true concept of what they are doing for in their hatred refuse to read or even listen to the evidence of the truth that can be found with the Bible and from Christians that truly do strive to follow the word of God.
Now we must understand an important point though.
There are those that call themselves “Christian” that have this very same self-loathing and too seek solace.
Why is this?
Because in reality they are not truly “Christian.”
They take the words of others as (excuses the pun) gospel.
When they are not in reality receiving the word of God.
But the gospel according to humanity.
Christ makes it clear that we are to love God with all our heart, mind and soul. By giving this love we seek to do all thing for His glory. ALL THINGS.
So for example these false teachers say you can call upon God to give you wealth upon this earth. This is a lie.
So for example these false teachers say that this group of people is less than you and you are to rule over them. This is a lie.
The Bible says our rewards are not of this earth and that those that are rich will have a more difficult time entering into the eternal life if at all.
The Bible says we are to place ALL others before ourselves. If we do that and we treat them as we would like to be treated ourselves. Then we would never seek to harm them, for only very few seek to harm themselves and that is mainly due to not knowing or understanding the Word of God.
So understand. Those that divide. Those that promote hate. Those that seek to be have dominion over their fellows. Do so for their own selfish and sinful desire and needs, for they are corrupt and evil.
The only way to escape this cycle is to truly ask Jesus Christ into their lives and to truly come to understand the Bible and the peace that is taught within it.

Arrogance


When those that practice evil reach a point where they do not care if they let all know that they are doing evil, and they appear to get away with evil, it is a sign of true and complete arrogance. More and more this is becoming prevalent in those that seek to run the United States.
If you have ever watched the movie “Mr. Smith goes to Washington” you would have seen this very behavior. What is amazing is that this fictional movie made in the 1930s, but actually was based in some facts of the time, would come full circle and become rampant once again. It is seen in all that are in Washington and seek to rule the common folk of this once proud nation.
It was seen this last week on the day after the Fourth of July. A day that was once a celebration of this nation’s freedom from this very tyranny is now tarnished and misrepresented. As of this last fifth the true meaning of this day is lost to those that have no true understanding nor desire to seek understanding of what freedom is.
The fifth of July of this year should go down throughout all history as the day the death knell of the former United States of America died.
Now we are in a new country. A country that has those that seek to be like those in power. Yet it is not even 1% of the population that reach this “goal.”
Now I placed the word “goal” in quotation marks for as I have been teaching several times throughout the last few years I have posted this blog, that to seek after anything within this temporal plain of existence, especially anything that offers tremendous earthly rewards is actually a near guarantee of damnation that will last billions upon billions of year. Yet those that celebrated the fifth will laugh and scoff at this very statement I just wrote above. Why? Because they do not know the Bible. They do not know God and they definitely do not know the true image of Jesus Christ.
They have been twisted and manipulated to thinking all there is, is this few short years within this life they now live. They have been twisted to think all must revolve around them. Yet it in no way will for those that never reach the point of control and power. Yet they allow themselves to think they have power and control when it is they that are being controlled by the puppet masters of damnation that are of the less than 1%.
What they should truly do is seek out a Bible and to REALLY read it. I do not mean pick a verse here or there and apply these verses wrongly as most do. I mean read it. Study it. Seek the original meaning of the words as they were written two thousand years ago and more. Come to see that the Bible is true. For it never contradicts itself even though the very first word written down was place upon paper thousands of years before the last one was written.
This can only come from one source, not hundreds, and that One is GOD.
The Bible makes it clear that those that seek the highest point of control and power in this reality will be the lowliest being in the eternal existence. It is shown within the Bible that those that are in power and lie, murder, and subjugate will be destroyed. And those the gleefully and willingly follow them will be cast down with them to eternal sorrow and agony.
So go ahead celebrate your “victory” over what is true and righteous, you that seek after worldly rewards and praise. Even though in your eyes it appear that you are “true and righteous.” I dare you. I challenge you to read the Bible. In both King James and New Living Translation. I dare and challenge you to go to Bible Hub at biblehub.com and study the true meaning of the words. To see that those that seek after wealth and power will find it harder than a camel to go through the eye of a needle. To see that the Bible states that ALL liars will go into the pit of fire to eternal pain and agony that will never end for billions upon billions, upon billions of year. To see that Bible says that those that seek after money will not serve God, but despise and that they will willingly go into the pit of fire joyous of their choice to defy God to their own doom. I dare you.

The wisdom dilemma


One of the most interesting statements in the Bible, and I paraphrase, is the most foolish thought of God surpasses the greatest wisdom from humanity.
This is particularly true for those that live on the belief that humanity can accomplish anything on its own. That their knowledge can and will solve any problems, and since knowledge and wisdom are related man’s destiny to them is all they require not realizing something is missing.
Here is a for instance about how mans’ knowledge and wisdom works. Indoor plumbing. Something that is a part of all homes for the most part in western society. Yet this is a recent accommodation. It wasn’t something that was considered a necessity until the early part of the 1900s.
However for nearly fifteen hundred years it was something forgotten and thought to have never existed. In reality indoor plumbing was a staple of the Roman Empire. Yet due to the fall of the empire it was forgotten. This shows just how fragile human knowledge and wisdom is.
Now here most likely someone will say what does a toilet have to do with wisdom. All I can say to that is thank you for proving my point, and most likely my response will go right over their heads.
When Paul first wrote to Corinth in the first letter we have within the Bible he mentioned that his speech was not as eloquent and tried to show the wisdom of God. He went there with one purpose to show them the true image of Jesus Christ and the fact that He went to the cross and died in their place.
This was all that was important to Paul as it should be to any seeking true salvation.
Yet most in the world today seek for various types of so called wisdom. All coming from different aspect of humanity. Most of this so-called wisdom rejects that there is a God and the center their focus upon that which has been created by God.
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. 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 shows that when it comes to true wisdom they do not desire that, but would rather accept foolishness as wisdom. Every aspect of creation shows just how wise God truly is, yet humans say there is no such being that can cause and create all that is within the universe. However this is the very point. They see the truth, the wisdom, the glory and reject it. This is the dilemma with human based wisdom.

And they shall be cursed


The past few days I have been reading various parts of the Bible seeking insight into the changes that are tearing this nations to pieces. This nation has been on a downward trend since the 1970s and this is why.
When speaking to Jeremiah this was said within the Bible unto him:
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Now why is Jeremiah any different than any of us? Because he was chosen to be a prophet? To a degree yes, but that is not where I am heading with this. Read what is to follow:
Genesis 38: 8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. 9 And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. 10 And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.
If the very seeds of man are so important to God that he would kill a man dead for spilling them upon the ground then God knows that even the seed is a human being. This confirms that God knows us before we are even conceived. So any child within the womb IS a living human being and should be treated as such by all.
These verses led me to this verse as well:
Deuteronomy 27: 25 Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen.
Since fetuses, babies are seen by God before conception that they are human beings, and innocent, and there are those receiving rewards to abort them and then to even cut those up for their body parts are seen as accursed.
Now how does that bring ruin upon this nation? For by allowing it to take place and not end it, it appears God is bring about a judgment upon this nation especially since through our taxes we are paying for the killing of innocent human beings.
Yesterday the Senate voted to end our taxes from being spent to end this curse. The vote should have been a simple vote 100 for de-funding instead it was 53-46 and one refusing to vote to protect his job since he was a Republican in what has turned into a Democratic state.
The “they” in the title of this post is us. All those in the United States of America that did not do all they could to end these horrors that have befallen the most innocent of all …… the unborn human being.
We are all cursed, repent to God and beg His forgiveness, but we must end that which is a curse in the eyes of God before He will forgive us.

The Delusional Humans


Throughout history, several things repeat themselves. One of the foremost is those that delude themselves into thinking that they are better than God is. This has even happened to popes by the way but usually by those with the most power at the particular time. Usually this delusion results in wars, but it always leads to death of innocents. In the crusades, which were ordered by men with a misconception of the Bible due to the fact the only the elite has access to it, it led to the death of Jews and Arabs alike. In the Soviet Union it was the removal of the Bible from the culture by humans who felt they knew better then God which led to millions dying including Christians, Jews and those that opposed the totalitarian elitist government. It was the removal of God for an elitist race mentality that led to approximately thirteen million, Jews, Christians, homosexuals, gypsies and others at the hands of a lunatic as well as millions of others that fought to overthrow him in World War II.
The phrase if you do not study history you are destine to repeat has never been truer than it does today. The ruling class kept the knowledge to themselves during the Crusades. Perverting the Bible to justify the killing of Jews and to invade the Middle East under the pretense that Jerusalem needed to be saved from the “heathens” when has you can tell in hindsight that it was purely for greed. It is that very mentality that those now with the power within the United States feel they are justified in their actions to destroy this country. Well this is wrong. One of the main factors that caused an end to the Crusades was that more and more people gained access to the Bible and learned of the true teachings within it. It is something those with power during the Middle Ages tried to stop, but failed. They failed because God is more powerful than humans are. It was through free-will that people learned the true and acted upon it.
It is now time for humans to act upon the teaching of the Bible and to stop those that are removing God and history from our schools. It is time to remove career politicians. It is time to change laws that will allow those that are corrupt within the government to be at the least fired and the most jailed. It is time for the common people to rise up and say we are not going to take it anymore. It is something that those in power have deluded themselves into thinking they are doing for the good of all, but in reality, they are doing it for themselves.
The last time this happened, it caused the Soviet Union to implode upon itself and it was the common people that stood up and said they are not going to take it anymore. They were in a worse place then we are today within the USA, but it is something we can change now by acting upon our given rights to vote. It is also important that we keep in contact with those in the government that represent us. How can they do business for us if they do not know what it is we desire? If you allow them to assume that allows the old maxim of “making an ass out of you (U) and me” come into play.
If those in national office will not make term limits for themselves, it is up to us to make them have them. How do we do this? Either we vote them out or we contact those in the state governments and petition them to make term limits for those that the state sent to Washington D.C. This is what is our rights are as a citizen of the United States and the respective state you live in. It is also our right to recall a politician that does not embody our views that we wish to have seen in Washington D.C.
Several senators did not come up for re-election. We have the right to petition for their recall if they are not doing what we sent them to D.C. to do. We need to make both parties realize that the days of the career politician is over and return this nation back to its original design.
I highly recommend the book “The Liberty Amendments” by Mark R. Levin
