Discussion

Matthew 5:17-20 – “Don’t misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose. 18 I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not even the smallest detail of God’s law will disappear until its purpose is achieved. 19 So if you ignore the least commandment and teach others to do the same, you will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But anyone who obeys God’s laws and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. 20 “But I warn you—unless your righteousness is better than the righteousness of the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven!

These are the words of Jesus Christ about the laws of Moses. He also said this:

Matthew 22:36-40 – “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” 37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

By living these two greatest commandments we fulfill the laws of Moses. Does this mean we should ignore them? Millions believe this due to what is said in Galatians:

Galatians 2:15-21 – “You and I are Jews by birth, not ‘sinners’ like the Gentiles. 16 Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by obeying the law. And we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ, not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law.” 17 But suppose we seek to be made right with God through faith in Christ and then we are found guilty because we have abandoned the law. Would that mean Christ has led us into sin? Absolutely not! 18 Rather, I am a sinner if I rebuild the old system of law I already tore down. 19 For when I tried to keep the law, it condemned me. So I died to the law—I stopped trying to meet all its requirements—so that I might live for God. 20 My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die.

How does this section begin though:

“You and I are Jews by birth, not ‘sinners’ like the Gentiles.”

Here is the key dividing line that must be kept in mind when reading these verses. Being born Jewish, they were subject to the law of Moses. Yet, their acceptance that Christ is their Savior these laws are no longer a factor.

However, to fulfill Christ’s mission we must remember these words:

“I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not even the smallest detail of God’s law will disappear until its purpose is achieved.”

So, we must at least adhere to following those laws of Moses to fulfill treating others as we would treat ourselves. When you fully reject the laws of Moses you are in turn fully rejecting Christ who made it clear He came to fulfill these laws, and that they still need to be followed per His own teachings.

When you fully take Christ teachings into consideration. This is evident that Christ still taught these laws in everything He instilled through His instructions.

Then why do people insist that they are right and that the Christ is wrong?

Yes, you got what I said correct. They insist that the laws must be fully and completely abandoned. So, I will go back once again to the words of Jesus Christ Himself:

Matthew 5:17-20 – Do not think that I have come to do away with or undo the Law or the Prophets; I have come not to do away with or undo but to complete and fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until the sky and earth pass away and perish, not one smallest letter nor one little hook [identifying certain Hebrew letters] will pass from the Law until all things [it foreshadows] are accomplished. 19 Whoever then breaks or does away with or relaxes one of the least [important] of these commandments and teaches men so shall be called least [important] in the kingdom of heaven, but he who practices them and teaches others to do so shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness (your uprightness and your right standing with God) is more than that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Amplified Classic)

Let us look at the KJV now of verse 17:

Matthew 5:17 – Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Destroy – G2647 – kataluó – (a) trans: I break up, overthrow, destroy, both lit. and met., (b) I unyoke, unharness a carriage horse or pack animal; hence: I put up, lodge, find a lodging.

Fulfil – G4137 – pléroó – I fill, fulfill, complete; to make replete, to furnish, satisfy, execute, verify, end.

  1. Replete – fully or abundantly provided or filled

Now look at verse 19:

Matthew 5:19 –  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Christ makes it clear that we are to continue to follow the laws of Moses, but as is shown in Matthew 22 we complete this task by treating others as we would treat ourselves. When not diminishing other and treating them as our equals we treat them as we wish to be treated.

When doing this there is no cheating other. There is no enslaving others. There is no killing others. There is no evil. Why? Because we are treating others as we seek to treat ourselves.

Now there will be those that say I am preaching legalism.

Then they have not been paying attention. This is not me saying these things. This is the words of Jesus Christ Himself.

If the Son of God says that we are to follow the laws. Then we are to follow the laws. If we are to follow the laws of man but not God that makes the entire Bible void and useless. This is how atheist see the Bible. This is how those that totally deny God see these teachings.

So, you are saying you side with the atheist and those that deny God?

Ponder upon that for a moment.

Does this not fulfill these verses that describes the last church described in the book of Revelation?

Revelation 3:15-16 – “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!

Yes, it does.

Why because most have abandoned that which will cause them to do good works for God. (James 2:14-26) Which will cause them to bear fruit for God.

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.

“When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.”

Obey the commandments. That is not legalism. That is listening and following Jesus Christ in faith and works.

And what is the result if we do not keep Christ within us?

John 15:6 – If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. (KJV)

I turn back to one of my early podcasts and I give you the breakdown of this verse:

He is cast – G906 – ballo – to throw [Strong’s]

“To throw” or “to cast,” “to cast off fruit. ‘Often in the NT “ballo” is used in different ways in connection with the thought of judgement, partly as a committal to the element which exercises it. Partly of expulsion from the community of salvation, when used with “exo.” [TDNT]

Forth – G1854 – exo – out [Strong’s]

Is withered – G3583 – xeraino – to desiccate, to shrivel [Strong’s]

Men gather – G4863 – synago – sunago – to lead together, collect or convene, to entertain [Strong’s]

Them into – G1519 -eis – to or into [Strong’s]

The fire – G4442 – pyr – pur – fire [Strong’s]

A judgement [TDNT]

They are burned – G2545 – kaio – to set on fire, consume [Strong’s]

With the TDNT the emphasis of this word is keyed to self-burning. Voluntarily giving oneself over to be burned.

The main takeaways from the translation of this verse is if you accept Christ as your Savior and you choose not to follow his teaching and live a truly Christian life. You instead choose to live in the world of man which entertains you. You are broken off from the Divine Vine that is Christ and you are cast willingly into the fires of judgement. Which agrees with Revelation 3:15-16.

As you think and ponder these words. I will leave you to think where you stand with God.

God Bless

SPECIAL ADDENDIM

In a comment made on the Facebook page for my podcasts someone made a haughty reply to this Bible study. (To understand why I use the word “haughty” please read “Blog for Podcast #65 (The Haughty)

In this comment the author implied that this law should still be followed:

Exodus 21:20-21 – “If a man beats his male or female slave with a club and the slave dies as a result, the owner must be punished. 21 But if the slave recovers within a day or two, then the owner shall not be punished, since the slave is his property.

My reply to this person was this:

Just for those that assume they know better than God through Jesus Christ.

Any of the old laws that don’t stand up to:

Matthew 22:37-40 – Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

In other words: Do unto others as you would have done unto you.

Were voided upon the cross.

2 examples:

People do not enslave themselves.

People usually do not beat themselves.

Those that use this as an excuse not to follow the laws within the Bible. Need to rethink how they live their lives.

These two greatest commandments, which the moment Christ spoke them, I feel, should have changed the 10 Commandments into 12 Commandments. Became the litmus test for all the laws within the Bible.

As shown in my two examples when comparing to the law listed in Exodus. Anyone who loves their fellow humans as they love themselves would not enslave themselves or beat themselves. because we are placing the others before ourselves.

Philippians 2:1-4 – Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? 2 Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. 3 Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 4 Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

God Bless

Discussion

As I have made mention before. I have been called to teach those that fall into the group known within the Bible as the “lukewarm.” The thing is, many that fall into this category are unaware that they qualify. This is my greatest sorrow.

I saw a meme the other day that summed it up beautifully. It said that the Jewish people understood the laws of God but rejected Jesus Christ as the Messiah. Then it said. Christians accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah but reject the laws of God. They choose to live in sin. Now I may be wasting my time, for the book of Hebrews says this:

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. 

However, God also said that He was here to give everyone a chance.

1 Timothy 2:1-6 – I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 2 Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. 5 For, There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. 6 He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time. 

But I fear that many will reject God and His Son Jesus Christ when the tribulation begins. Having found themselves lacking in His sight to be left behind.

These people feel and believe that they need do nothing but accept Jesus as their Savior and they will be granted admission into heaven. This is only part of what is required. So, I have decided to dig out another of my earlier teachings to address this.

If you love me, keep my commandments.

These are the words of Jesus Christ in the fourteenth chapter of John the fifteenth verse. They are direct and to the point. However, when you really look into how those that call themselves “Christian.” How many of them truly do not love Jesus? For the majority do not follow this direct and simple directive from Jesus Christ the Son of God.

One of the main reasons for this is due to not even understanding their own faith and beliefs that forms this faith. This is something that need to be addressed. Many perceive this as legalism.

The main reason for this is due to how the true Word of God has been diluted or not even taught fully or completely. They live under a belief that if all they do is believe then they will make it into heaven.

James 2:14-17 – What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? 17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

Faith alone without following the commandments is dead. It is a simple statement. It comes straight to the point. If you do not follow and live the teachings of Jesus Christ, you are dead unto Him. If you are dead unto Him, you are not of Him, and so hate Him. They are living what is called a lukewarm live.

How does Jesus Himself few the lukewarm?

Revelation 3:15-16 – “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!

They are so distasteful to Him that He spits them from His Body.

So how can we change this? How can we make it where we are not spit out by Jesus?

We come full circle back to where we began. We follow the commandments.

It is here that someone will start to argue that Jesus dying upon the cross and then rising upon the third day removed the need to follow the commandments. However, that is not the correct interpretation of what the Bible teaches.

Matthew 5:17-20 – “Don’t misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the Law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose. 18 I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not even the smallest detail of God’s law will disappear until its purpose is achieved. 19 So if you ignore the least commandment and teach others to do the same, you will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But anyone who obeys God’s laws and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. 20 “But I warn you—unless your righteousness is better than the righteousness of the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven!

Again, we are told by Jesus Christ Himself that we are to follow the commandments. So how can you even attempt to question? It is not me that you are challenging but Jesus Christ Himself and His own words. So, following the commandments, especially those taught by Jesus Christ Himself are not legalism, it is the required works of a living faith in Jesus and His Father, God. It is the act of love He asks of us to do.

The first steps (part one)


The first steps are the hardest, aren’t they? It takes months for a baby to finally get to the point of walking. It is a series of trials and errors. Sometimes they are a shock, a surprise. Other times it hurts, and the child ends up crying at the least, bleeding at the most. This too is the Christian faith as we strive ever daily to be more Christ-like.
However, we need a starting point. To follow the commandments, we must come to understand that the true “commandments” is not just the ten commandments. In fact, the commandments are found in Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy. This is verified in an exchange Jesus has with one of the religious leaders that confronted Him. It is found in Mark twelve, Luke ten and Matthew twenty-two. However, it is also first shown in Deuteronomy six:


4-6 – “Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. 5 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. 6 And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today.


This confirms that all the laws within these three books to a degree are still in force. Does this mean we are to go and stone someone? For heaven’s sake no. It does mean we need to put those things into practice that can be maintained by our own actions and behavior. Nor are we to perform sacrifices for Jesus was the pure Lamb sacrificed for our salvation unto to His Father God.
However, what is our first steps other than coming to know the Bible and the commandments there in? How do we put into practice that which we know we must do to avoid death of our spirit? For we have determined not to live by faith alone, but by both faith and works.
Well we must find something that is common for most of humanity, be they Christian or not.


Romans 13:1-7 – Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 2 So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. 3 For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. 4 The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. 5 So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience. 6 Pay your taxes, too, for these same reasons. For government workers need to be paid. They are serving God in what they do. 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: Pay your taxes and government fees to those who collect them, and give respect and honor to those who are in authority.


Titus 3:1 – Remind the believers to submit to the government and its officers. They should be obedient, always ready to do what is good.


Now I know many both Christian and non-Christian that daily disobey this one teaching. So, it is here that I feel we should begin. For from here once it becomes a habit can lead unto other teachings and commandments within the Bible. What is this one thing that is daily disobeyed? Following the speed limits and other traffic laws.
This is something that is shared by all of humanity and can in reality show your commitment to following God with all your heart, mind and soul. But how is that accomplished? How do you put it into practice? Why put it into practice? I will answer all three of these questions in reverse order as we continue this series.

The first steps (part two)


Why put obeying the road laws into practice?
The main reason for this is made perfectly clear in Romans 13, but we shall do a deep dive into these verses to get a better understanding and thus answer the question that was just asked.


Romans 13:1-5 – Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2- Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3- For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4- For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5- Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.


For all authority comes from God.


To address this we must turn to the fourth book of Daniel:


4:17 – “For this has been decreed by the messengers; it is commanded by the holy ones, so that everyone may know that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world. He gives them to anyone he chooses— even to the lowliest of people.”


Simply obeying the laws given by a state or nation that do not go against the Bible and its teachings is something that we must follow as an open expression of our faith and love in God and His Son Jesus Christ.
So following the speed limit says you love Jesus.
When an ending lane merges to the lane that does not. If you are in the lane ending you allow those in the other lane to go before you, yielding them the right of way. This in turn goes into the next verse in Titus three:
2 – They must not slander anyone and must avoid quarreling. Instead, they should be gentle and show true humility to everyone.
The laws created for the road are practices taught within the Bible, just applied to how you get about in your everyday life. Yet, most that profess to be “Christian” find the need to follow these laws a burden, an inconvenience, something to be tolerated. Why? Because they the “Christian” are more important.
They are more important than God or their very salvation.
To be humble is one of the true vestments of Christianity. So what is the word “humility” in Titus?
Humility (NLT) – meekness (KJV) –  G4236 – praiotes – properly, temperate, displaying the right blend of force and reserve (gentleness). praótēs (“strength in gentleness”) avoids unnecessary harshness, yet without compromising or being too slow to use necessary force.
I will let you ponder upon this definition, and allow you to make your own conclusion as how to behave upon the road.
I have heard all the excuses by those that profess “Christianity.”
“Well during the time I am driving, if I go the speed limit I am a safety hazard to those upon the road.”
“If I go the speed limit I have to go to bed earlier and miss my favorite TV show.”
“I have so far to travel I will be on the road longer.”
These are things I hope, if I have not already shown to be addressed, as they should be by now, they will be addressed as we answer the next two questions as this series continues.

God bless

Tablets of stone


It is said that when Moses came down from Mt. Sinai that the Ten Commandments were written upon stone tablets, what many do not realize is that it was not just the commandments but the entire book of Leviticus as well. This was not just done to show God’s power but to show that these commandments and laws are unchangeable by humanity.
Yet today that is exactly what many are doing. Taking a chisel to the tablets so they can picking and choose what they are to follow and obey and what they do not wish to follow they are chiseling out. The thing is the chisel leaves no marks upon the stones. The tablets remain unchanged and what is a sin in both the old and the new testaments is still a sin.
Below is a list of sins from the New Testament:
Adultery; Fornication; Uncleanness; Lasciviousness; Idolatry; Witchcraft; Hatred; Variance; Emulations; Wrath; Strife; Seditions; Heresies; Envyings; Murders; Drunkenness; Revellings; Pedophiles; Homosexuals; Thieves; Covetous; Extortioners, Wickedness; Deceit; An evil eye (looking at someone in anger); Blasphemy; Pride; Foolishness
1 Corinthians 6
Mark 7
Galatians 5

Sins from Corinthians were those main sins occurring in Corinth.
Sins in Galatians were the primary sins of Galatia.
Sins in Mark were the primary sins in Israel.

Since the sins are not taken away from the tablet, then where must they be removed from? Us, we cannot keep sin within and expect to make it into heaven.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived.

What took Moses so long to return to the tribe of Israel as they waited for his return at the foot of Mt Sinai?


Those who have not read the Bible, will not realize, that the reason it took so long for Moses to return to those he had just saved from slavery in Egypt was due to him be given not just ten commandments but all the laws that the tribe of Israel and ultimately Christianity were to follow.
Now as I have said before due to free-will all have to choice to live as they so desire. That is their decision to live in sin if they so choose. That does not give them permission to change the laws that were first made upon that mountain those thousands of years ago.
Yet that is exactly what is being done. To the point that the former Presbyterian church this last year did two things in violation of these laws. First, they said they would no longer acknowledge Israel. Second, they allowed for same sex marriages.
Now again as I have stated elsewhere and above if you want to live this lifestyle that is your decision, I am not going to stop, but I am not going to condone your action either. I will personally think you are living in sin. If I knew I could get you to stop, I would do it.
My reason for this post is to state that when a church allows you to marry within their walls they are giving you the false believe that God approves of your lifestyle, which is the furthest thing from the truth. The new Presbyterian social club is no longer a church. They may say they are, but due to them denying Israel which is the first nation created by God then they are in fact denying God. So if you want to get married in a one of the clubhouse go for it, but do not think it is God saying it is ok.
One of the laws given to Moses on Sinai was that men should not lie with men as if one is a woman. (Lev 18:22). At one point the actions of a few men within the tribe of Benjamin resulted in nearly the entire tribe to be wiped out leaving only eleven tribes instead of twelve. All due to the fact that the tribe would not turn over these men for judgment due to their behavior. (Judges 19 & 20)
Also in Leviticus, it is explained that due to this type of behavior was one of the main reasons God was leading the Israelites into the lands that would become Israel due to this very behavior because the nations that occupied it at that time allowed this behavior.
Here is my point. Again if you wish to live this lifestyle do so, but do not force your lifestyle upon the rest of us. This nation, no matter what you were told was made for the freedom to worship God. Due to this original principle, it has been changed to allow those to worship or not worship as they see fit. As a result, this nation is in decline. If you read Leviticus, you will see that those nations Israel was going to replace were in decline because of this type of behavior being present.
If you insist on marrying, do not do so in a church have a civil ceremony.
As a Christian, it is my responsibility to inform you that your actions are a direct factor for the states of this nation as it is this moment. It is also due to abortion, but I will not stop a woman for doing it for that is her free-will choice as well. I am asking that you try to understand that your actions are wrong. Will you change your ways? I doubt it, but I hope you start to think. I hope you start to realize that this type of lifestyle has led to the destruction of many nations before this one. Realize that by forcing others to accept you is wrong, just as it is equally wrong for others like me to force you to stop if you do not want to. Leave the laws of this nation alone. If you do not like them because of your lifestyle choice Then you will just have to not like them. They were made because they were based on those laws given to Moses upon that mountain by God Himself. I wish to follow these laws, as should any that call themselves Christian. As such no church should welcome you unless you come to repent of your sin and leave it behind. I know it will be difficult, for I have had to struggle with it myself, but I overcame it and came to know that the traditional lifestyle is the true one.
I know the world does not revolve about me. Many think the world does revolve about them. This is also not true. God is the center for when you truly place God before all others you suddenly know and realize that all others are more important than you are. That is why I make this blog. It is what God has called me to do. This is my ministry, and through it, I wish to help awaken those that are walking through this world in a dream of their own making. A dream in which all is happiness, but in reality the world is falling apart about us due to these choices that are against God and the founding principles of this very nation. This nation which was the second nation created by God. It should be treated with the respect for which those that left the persecution of the Old World to come to this New World in the believe that they and their children, which we are, would worship God as if He still stood upon Mount Sinai at this very moment and obey the laws he had handed to Moses.

The road does not belong to just you (A reminder to follow the teaching of the Bible)


Daily, especially on the northeast coast many act as if the road they drive their car and motorcycle upon is their personal property. Yes, your vehicle is your property, but that is where it ends.
We live under laws and rules of the road that we must obey and follow. As Christians we are told to obey these laws and rules (Titus 3:1).
Just for a refresher course.
The double yellow lines mark different directions of traffic. You do not cross that line unless you are turning and then ONLY if no one in the opposing direction is heading toward you, even if the light has just changed.
The dashed white line is a dividing line for multiple lanes. Stay between them, unless you are switching lane, but make sure no one is in the lane you are going into; also just because there is enough room for your vehicle in an adjacent lane is not permission for you to go into it. It is there as a safety gap. Per the rules of the road for every 10 miles per hour you go you should allow 20 feet between you and the vehicle in front of you for braking purposes.
The “Yield” sign means to “yield RIGHT OF WAY” that means if someone is where you want to be you MUST allow them to go first. When a sign says for example “Right lane ends” that means those in the left lane has the right of way and you must yield this right of way to them. Once it is clear, you can then merge over to the left lane.
If you are in a forty-five mile per hour speed zone and it then reduces to thirty-five you slow down.

As Children of God, we are told in to Bible to honor these laws as referenced earlier. If you are not following them then not only are you disobeying these laws but God.

How the USA was designed to work


Many including Americans have a misconception of how the United States of America is supposed to work. My intent here is to shed some light on these false impressions.
Primarily the USA is in actuality 50 separate countries that have decided to work together in some aspects, but in others, they do not.
Each state or nation taxes those that live within its borders in the way that state see fit. They also established their own traffic laws, their own education systems as well as many other things. Due to the fact they have chosen to work together they have open borders within most of the lower forty-eight states. The only exception is California, which requires that you stop and have your vehicle inspected before you are allowed to enter their state/nation. So thinking that the USA is one huge nation is the biggest fallacy even propagated by the federal government.
The federal government was design to interact with foreign powers acting as a central focal point instead of each state having to deal with these foreign nations on their own. Originally, each states had their own currency. This led to problems so the states asked the federal government to make a common currency. In addition, each state has their own armies. These are the reserves, as they are known by today. They answer to the governor of that states, but there is also a federal army. It again was designed to deal with foreign powers.
Those that go to the Senate and Congress were not meant to be career politician. When the nation was younger, people had to take care of their own affairs in the states they came from. The government did not pay them; they lived off their own money. Therefore, they stayed in Washington for one maybe two terms and then had to return to their homes to keep their income going.
Since this has now changed due to industrialization and due to the fact they, someone, decided to allow the federal government to pay them they have turned into career politicians. Term limits need to be imposed upon those that go to DC since they are no longer thinking correctly. This can be and should be done on the state level, but requires those that live in these states to take action and speak up to their state representatives.
Anyway, I hope this gives some insight to those that read this on how the USA was designed to work and in some aspects still is. While in other ways it is not working as originally designed which is causing problems
