Discussion

It is time.

It is time to shout the Truth, but most will reject it, just as Jesus Christ said it would be.

Matthew 7:13-14 NKJV – “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

What is truly sad is the “many” believe with all their hearts they are on the difficult way. But why is this?

Because they think they are hearing the Truth, when in fact they are listening to lies.

Case in point:

Galatians 1:6-7 NKJV – I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ

“To a different gospel, which is not another.”

Many don’t grasp what is being said here. So let us look at it from a different angle.

Matthew 24:4-5 NKJV – And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.

They will use the Word of God and even confess that Jesus is the Christ, but they will leave out what is required to find eternal life. As a result, those that do this are cursed.

Galatians 1:8-9 NKJV – But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

But what is causing them to be cursed?

Galatians 1:10 NLT – Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.

Those that are cursed are teaching a false gospel that is designed to make people feel pleased with how they now and how the wish to live. In luxuries and comforts here in this temporal existence, when Christ makes it clear that we are to store nothing here in this reality at all.

Matthew 6:19-21 NKJV – “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

If their heart is here in the world, then they are not with God.

1 John 2:15-16 NLT – Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.

If they are of this world, then who do they truly worship?

2 Corinthians 4:4 NLT – Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

Now right now there will be those that are angry and fuming at what has just been stated here. All I can say is thank you for providing a living verification that what has just been said is coming from the Truth.

Galatians 5:19-21 NKJV – Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

But, to get back on track.

Who is truly at fault for this?

2 Peter 2:1-3 NKJV – But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.

So those that do this are cursed as well as the fact that they are destroyed quickly. Also note that they even deny the Lord who bought them.

Therefore, those that live in this manner were once upon the Vine who is Jesus Christ. However, they have now been swiftly removed from the Vine.

John 15:1-6 NKJV – “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

Thus, those that teach false doctrine are cursed, quickly removed from the Vine of salvation, and are cast in the fires of damnation.

But why is this punishment so harsh?

Revelation 21:8 NKJV – But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

When we are born again it is then that we begin to seek to have eternal life. Yet if we do not accept the Truth and do not abide in Christ by seeking to become a reflection of Jesus Christ. We are removed from the Vine and suffer the second death.

If it is due to listening to those that teach a people pleasing message that includes words like “God,” “Jesus,” “love” and “salvation.” Then those that teach these lies are in fact murderers.

For what does Christ say in love?

Revelation 3:15-19 NKJV – “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore, be zealous and repent.”

To repent is to go the opposite direction of what someone was doing with remorse. Therefore, if someone sought after bigger, better, fancier. Then they are to go for smaller, lesser, and cheaper.

Yet those in places of power within the buildings called “churches” do not say or do this.

I once was at a men’s conference, and I was set with the associate pastor of the building called a “church” I was again trying to see if they are truly seeking after Christ. During the ensuing discussion I stated that it was wrong to seek after a huge house. I could visibly see the embracement on the young pastor face. He then confessed to just investing into a million-dollar home for purposes of entertaining. This and some haughty behavior by others at this conference was the straw that broke the camels back for this building and so I came to my final conclusion that the buildings called “churches” were nothing by dressed up social clubs. And those that ran them did not seek to help people find enteral life, but eternal death.

Thus, labeling those that stand upon the dais or behind the pulpit murderers if they teach only to please those that listen to their words. Accordingly, explaining why they are cursed and so quickly censured by God. The richer they are. The more of the world they themselves worship and the more destruction they have heaped upon their souls for all eternity.

It is time to leave the buildings called “churches” that do not call a sin a sin and teach of repentance and rejection of the world and all it offers.

For we are to be “zealous.” What does this mean?

zealous – G2206 – zéloó – affect, covet (earnestly), (have) desire, I am eager for, am eager to possess.

Especially now there is a need to be zealous for what is promised by God through the teachings of Jesus Christ. We should be earnestly seeking to become a true reflection of Christ by living a simple life. Fervently seeking to follow all the laws as commanded by Christ Himself who came not to destroy by fulfill them.

John 14:15 NKJV – “If you love Me, keep My commandments.

Matthew 5:17-20 NKJV – “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.

We are told not to listen to people pleasing messages. We are also told that if we encounter it, we are to leave those that not only listen to it but teach it.

1 Timothy 6:3-5 NKJV – If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.

Leave now and seek the Lord your God through learning fully the Bible and be obedient to His Son our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

God Bless.

A teacher in the faith


In the Bible it is made clear that people have different tasks to do for God. This is one of those things that many have not given much effort into for several decades. As a result many wonder through their belief in God lost and rudderless at times. I knew soon after being born again that I was to be a teacher of the Bible, but due to how churches are structured and if you do not attend certain man-made institutions then you are not welcome to do the calling that God placed upon you.
This man-made mentality is actually something that goes against what God wants. Did these men that run these businesses call upon me to teach? No, it was God who called me. Who should I listen to? For too long I listened to the men, the creation of God.
As I studied the Bible more and more. Digging deeper into the meaning of the Bible I learned to add items to help me gain insight and knowledge of what is being taught with the books that are now called the Bible.
Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance launch me like I was upon a spring board deeper in the Word. Things become clearer. Then, my brother, also a born again Christian added to my growth with the New Testament Theological Dictionary, in its unabridged form it is ten volumes long. Again my insight into God grew exponentially, yet do I know everything? By all mean no, emphatically no.
Am I a better suited to be God given role? Maybe.
I have learned that men have not grown in their true understanding of God’s word. Many stuck in the dogma of this religious view verses that religious view. Some to the point of disliking the way one group thinks verses how another group thinks. An example, Catholics verse Protestants.
Most even today do not wish to truly acknowledge that Jesus added to the original Ten Commandments to make them twelve, thus matching the number of tribes of Israel.
Many do not realize that Christ ministry was to the Jews and the Jews alone. It was not until Jesus appeared to Saul who then become Paul the thirteen disciple that the teachings of the Bible expanded to the Gentiles and thus the true birth of Christianity took place at that time since most before this time were Messianic Jews.
Much of what the Bible has become watered down or twisted to allow those that go to churches to live their lives unchanged yet feel they has accomplished something for God. But this is not a reality.
The Bible clearly states that you can be a child of God through Christ, yet if you bear no fruit you can be broken off of the vine, given unto man and then cast into the fire. When Jesus speaks in this context to “fire” he is saying unto damnation, yet there are those that say this is not so, but this is what the Bible states and so is fact.
This is my job as a teacher to make people awaken to these facts and challenge them to through the Bible prove me wrong, and if I am I am fine with that. However man-made doctrines like “once saved always saved” need to end. For since John 15 clearly states that someone is of the vine of Christ, thus saved, and God sees no fruit from someone and so God Himself breaks them off and they are cast into the fire. Then there is only one conclusion, you can, once saved, become lost and damned. This is not a scare tactic as I once read by someone that believed the false man-made doctrine mentioned above, but Biblical fact. This helps to cause people to strive to becoming a better child of Christ. Is this bad to become more like Jesus? Per the Bible, the answer is no.
Do not allow man to dictate your life for Christ. Let Christ direct you.

The Manifesto of the Dreamer


I stand accused.
I must answer this accusation through the Bible and by the Bible.
First and foremost:
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.
These are the word of Jesus Christ my Savior. He did not come to destroy but to fulfil
Fulfil = pleroo – “to fulfil a measure, a promise,”; “to complete or achieve”; “totality”; “fullness” (Theological Dictionary of the NT)
This means that to adhere solely to the New Testament is actually destroying that which Jesus came to fulfil.
I was reminded recently that many say that due to Christ actions the laws and teachings within the Old Testament have no more hold of the Body of Christ. I say that is counter to why Christ came upon this earth as stated by His own words above.
We are to hold to and maintain certain aspects of the Old Testament when it not actually stated to do otherwise. Example: Eating of sacrificed food was given a specific answer within the New Testament. (1 Corinthians 10:18-33).
So when there are specific examples within the New Testament that is to replace that of the Old Testament, but if it is not directly mentioned in the NT then the OT still hold governance.
Now I state all this because someone stated that my stance of being political was not to found within the Bible. I say this is not true. Yes we are instructed to give unto Caesar that which is Caesar. Yes we are told to obey the magistrates, but here is the catch. When obeying meant you have to disobey God, God took precedent. Did not Mordecai not bow, did not Daniel not eat and did not Jesus Himself stand against the laws of Pharisees which had come to be placed over God’s laws which He had come to fulfil?
Example: The turning over of the money changers tables in the Temple which He stated had been turned into a den of thieves. It was not the money changers that were the thieves, but the Pharisees through their laws they had enacted to allow the money changers in the temple for the profit of the Pharisees who received a portion of the money changers exchange fees for the purchase of sacrificial animals raise and own by the Pharisees. Thus the Pharisees were in fact stealing from those they were meant to minster to.
When humans makes laws that seek to supplant God’s who is to be followed?
Matthew 22:37 – Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment.
Luke 10:27 – And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
How can I love God the way stated above without placing Him in first and foremost into all that I do? If I do not place Him first in all I do, then I bow, then I eat what I should not eat, then I place the laws of humans over the laws given unto us by God.
Does this mean I break other laws made by humans? No. It does not. It means I work within those laws that do not try to take the place of God. For God has ordained those who are in power for His reasons. If those reasons are to see if they shall become like the Pharisees, then so be it, but those that profess to be the children of God through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, if they say nothing and allow those in power to become the Pharisees without warning them of their errors are they not guilty of sin? Per James 4:17 they are.
“Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”
Does this mean that a child of God must become political? Yes it does, as long as he acts within accordance of the law, not only Biblical but of the nation they live within.
Does this mean they are to peacefully protest, to rant, to inform the masses of the errors they are doing? Yes it does for did not the prophets of the Bible do this to Israel. For example: Hosea.
Am I calling myself a prophet? No I am not. My calling from God is to write my blog so as to attempt to reach the lukewarm (Revelation 3:15-16), so they might return once again unto God and feel His loving embrace upon that day of glory when they will be welcomed into His presence as one of His children. This is my ministry. To awaken those that have asked Christ into their hearts and souls yet have fallen from His graces for the world has come to mean more unto them then God.
They are the hypocrites yet they do not know that is what they have become.
Am I called to add to the body of Christ? No I am not. I am called to be a teacher unto those that are already of the Body. I am to study the Bible and attempt to understand it better so that in turn I can help them to understand the Bible better themselves. So if they have faltered and fallen they can pick themselves up and if they have not so they can become closer to God and His desires for all that call themselves His children.
Am I perfect? By all means no I am not. I make errors, I make mistakes. Do I shout when I should talk softly? Yes I do, but it is out of compassion and love for my fellow humans. For I have no desire for them to suffer, which is what will happen if they do not listen. If they turn a deaf ear because they are listening to those that say all is beautiful and fine with the world and God. Yes there is a need for love, but when there is too much love it can do more harm than good. Should I use more love? At times yes, but there are times when there is more of a need of a rod.
Proverbs 13: 24He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
Many within the Body spare the rod too much and so sin has run rampant and they are not leading them to salvation but enslavement.
2 Peter 2:18 – For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
This is my manifesto for I am and have been a dreamer of dreams:
Acts 2:17 – And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
