Let light and Truth be your guide. Jesus said that he was the light of the world. In John 14:6 he also said he was the truth. And the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. John 17:17 says, Sanctify them by your truth. Your word is truth. Set them apart by God’s truth and Jesus Christ is the truth and the Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth. The Triune Godhead is in control of Truth. Jesus is the light of the world. It was God who said let there be light. How much of your life is Guided by light and Truth?
How do we handle the traditions of men? I prefer to follow the word of God. I went to a religious Institution for college and it was a Wesleyan Methodist University. Thus we studied about John Wesley and his interpretation of the Bible. When I study the Bible I prefer to study it under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. As such I rejected the traditional teachings of Wesley. The Holy Spirit teaches me comparing spiritual things with spiritual. By way of an illustration, the Holy Spirit will take me to an Old Testament reference and then compare it to a new testament text. Therefore I prefer the teaching of the Holy Spirit to any man-made Institution. Do I now seek to persuade men or God? That is a question from Galatians 1:10. If I still pleased men, I would not be a servant of Christ. That’s pretty clear-cut. Often times in church today we have the Pharisee type of religion.
Those that do such a thing follow the law of Moses to the letter. The New Testament teaches us that the letter kills but the spirit gives life. Which would you prefer? I shudder to think of how you might answer that question because some people are so used to the rules and regulations of their Church superseding scripture. That should not be so. Then there are those in church who are so tolerant of sin that it makes me sick. These are the affirming churches who will affirm nearly everything but the word of God which is often out of season in those churches. Paul said that that we are to preach the word both in season and out.
Are you a Pharisee of the false love that has invaded the church? Are you part of the solution or part of the problem? Until we get back to speaking the truth in love the church will flounder and be without any power whatsoever. There’s a caution flag here though because remember the seventy whom Jesus sent out.
They returned with great joy saying, even the demons are subject to us in your name. I can almost imagine how Jesus looked at them shaking his head. Do not rejoice in this that the spirits are subject to you but Rejoice because your names are written in heaven. Absolute power corrupts. They were more joyful in the power they were given then the fact that they were serving Jesus Christ. When one is given power they can become Power Mad which destroys the gift. Simon the Sorcerer was like that as he wanted the power to make himself look great. He even asked to buy this power. Your money perish with you because you thought you could buy the power of the spirit. You can’t. The power of the spirit in my life issues understanding and to know scripture better by the day. Sanctify them by your word. That is found in John 17:17 which means set them apart by Your Word. Your word is truth. To me that is the power of the Holy Spirit. When he the spirit of Truth has come he will guide you into all truth from John 16:13. Do I follow the tradition of men? Absolutely not because then, I would not be a servant of Christ.
EXPOSING CHRISTIAN ERROR will not compromise the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. I have had Buddhists tell me I don’t understand their religion. The only thing I need to understand is that Buddhists are atheists. The natural man does not receive the things of the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to them, nor can they know them because they are spiritually discerned and that is from 1st Corinthians 2:14. I have had Christadelphians tell me I don’t understand their dubious body. Imposters will grow worse and worse deceiving and being deceived. There would be no Christadelphian Church if it had not been for John Thomas and he is a false prophet. He falsely predicted the end of the age in 1866 and he also predicted in 1866 that the papacy would end. Both false prophecies. It would seem that the founder of Christadelphians is a liar. In vain they worship me teaching as doctrines the Commandments of men from Matthew 15:9. I even had a Christadelphian tell me that I use Too Much scripture. I stand on the word of God and if I offend anyone I am not sorry. The only one I do not want to offend is God. A Christadelphian did not even know what the gospel was. How can you build a faith if you don’t know what you believe in? For the time will come, and has, when they will not endure sound Doctrine, because they have itching ears, they will Heap up for themselves teachers they will turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside to Fables. Again, I will not compromise the gospel.
How would you like to be a young man and just started in Ministry and be told my God that your ministry will be 2/3 negative and 1/3 positive. Let me break that down for you by way of a garden. My mother once asked me to remove a bunch of invasive Vines from her garden. I had to go all the way to the roots which was a long process to get them out effectively. It took twice as long to remove the negative before we can even think about planting. Jeremiah had a lot of negatives to get out of his way before he could build and plant.
But he had this promise from God. He would face opposition and that was a promise but they would not Prevail against him. God would take him through the tough times at his side to deliver him from every opposition set against him. He could not use his youth as an argument against turning this assignment down. God told him he would say what needed to be said at the moment it needed to be said. If God is with us who can stand against us? If you want further details on this assignment you might want to read all of Jeremiah 1 to learn more. You know, it might make a good Bible study for you tonight?
Jesus: I have a question for the 12 of you, and, Peter, shameful. Why are you humming, I’m number one? When I send you out where are you not to go? The Gentiles, which I’d like to talk to you after class. NO GENTILES PETER. CASE CLOSED!
The Mary of the Bible would denounce the Catholic version of her in a heartbeat. Mary, the mother of Jesus was full of humility and obedience. She was not sinless, that is a Catholic addition. DO NOT ADD TO HIS WORDS LEST HE REPROVE THEE AND YOU BE FOUND A LIAR- Proverbs 30:6.
The Catholic Mary is akin to a stuffed turkey, full of things that should not be there. AN ASTONISHING AND HORRIBLE THING HAS BE DONE IN THE LAND, THE PROPHETS PROPHECY FALSELY, THE PRIESTS RULE BY THEIR OWN POWER AND MY PEOPLE LOVE TO HAVE IT SO- Jeremiah 5:38-40.
She is not a co redeemer as that is the role of Christ only as of 1st Timothy 2:5. She is not an intercessor, as that is what the Holy Spirit does as of Romans 8:36. Her womb was home to Jesus Christ. The infant. That is where her task ended. Instead she is stuffed and stuffed with false doctrines, dogmas, and teachings out of Rome. FATIMA!
The Catholic Whore and still getting more!
I have an excellent video for you on this topic my one of my favorite authors Richard Jordan. His ministry is very similar to mine as to what we both believe. We are both against the denominational Church and the Roman Catholic Church which is really just a denominational Church. And not all Roman Catholic churches speak the same thing. European churches are much more strict than the churches in the United States. Comments are welcome on this issue.
BUT WHAT HAS LOVE BECOME INSTEAD?
The worldwide United Methodist Church has taken a firm biblical step back from homosexuality splitting the third largest denomination. Hurray! The Vote was 56% to 44%. Prayerfully this will start a trend back from biblical ignorance.
The Apostle Peter asked an even easier question. We ought to obey God rather than men?
The key is the word transgresses in 2nd John 9. The word means goes beyond and we are not to go beyond the word of God. Galatians reminds us that some want to pervert the gospel of Christ. Do not pervert the word nor go beyond it.
Who are the people that resist the government? It is God who gives these leaders their Authority. Just yesterday in a cabinet meeting, President Trump began the session with prayer for our nation. It truly needs it. On one hand, in the swamp, as the president so labels it, there is the obstructionist Democrats who vote as a block against the president no matter what the issue. Are they really for positive change in Washington? On the other hand is the president himself who changes his mind quickly and uses Twitter as his mouthpiece which I do not believe is suitable for a president of the United States. Turmoil seems to be the order of the day in Washington. Then you throw into that mess the Press.
The Free Press in our country is out of control. It would seem that they Bleed Blue, Democratic blue. They try to make President Trump look as bad as possible. Our press is a laughing stock in the world. It would seem the president draws a negative press wherever he goes but the president’s people back him soundly. While President Trump’s approval rating is rising Congress and the Senate remain low with the Press coming in last place. With everything surrounding president Trump going on behind the scenes there’s an effort to remove him from office backed by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. This drama gets no press coverage and that is a disgrace. A free press should cover all the stories without bias and yet sometimes it focuses on garbage news not worthy of our press while they ignore larger issues at hand. One of those bizarre nuances of the press is how they report a story fully and then say, we have not been able to confirm this source with whatever Network they’re servingwa. That’s like putting the Wagon in front we of the horse. The press needs to be more responsible because they are Their Own Worst Enemy. Fake news is the order.of the day and it seems to be working for the Press. Sooner or later our Free Press will not be trusted whatsoever by anyone. That is the mess and it’s happening in Washington today. Reflect back on the scripture for today. Those that resist the ordinance of God bring Swift destruction on themselves. If God put president Trump in control of the country, as he had done previously with Barack Obama, how should the people react? Recall the first king of Israel. God told the people what kind of King Saul would be and it wasn’t pretty people. The people wanted to be like all the other nations around them and so they voted Saul in and the Lord out. Saul was just as the Lord prophesied he would be. One of the best lines in 1st Samuel was they have not rejected you but they have rejected me says the Lord. Next I will focus on how we should behave toward the president of the United States.
Think about this versqe for a moment. In Israel’s history there are a great many Kings, the majority of which were bad. Then apply the same verse to our country. Of course we don’t have Kings and we fought a war to get away from that. I’m talking about leadership here. The authorities that exist are appointed by God. For whatever reason! After all his ways are much higher than our ways. I think back to King Josiah. He was one of the good Kings but he enforced righteousness just as the evil Kings enforced lawlessness. 2nd Chronicles records that he made all the people do good and for all his days they did not depart from from God. Jeremiah the prophet was largely silent during the reign of Josiah but in Jeremiah 3:10 the prophet says this. Judah has not come to me with her whole heart but in pretense. Israel pretended to be obedient. That is why Josiah said that all his days they did not depart from the Lord. However The Obedience didn’t last to the next king. It was only there because he enforced it. The new King James version said, he MADE all who are in Israel obey. He made them obey. Whether they wanted to or not as it was not heartfelt as Jeremiah had said. Aren’t we in the same boat today? We presently have an unconventional president. The country is divided more than ever against President Trump but he is getting things done. His character is very questionable. This President is difficult to analyze. But we don’t have to analyze him because, as the scripture says, God put him in Authority just as he put Barack Obama in authority. Many have compared president Trump to King Cyrus who was not a very good King in character. In part 2 of this series I’m going to bring in to play the opposition to this president including the Free Press if there is such a thing. Stay tuned.
The RCC was destroyed in the year 1500 in its first major split. It broke apart from The Greek Orthodox Church. And it’s never been the same since.
Not to worry. We have the Abracadabra Encyclopedia Insurance Guarantee that what we do is right.As usual we just add in what we want. And,Bingo! Sorry, that’s a word we support our gambling operations with. Catholics wanted to go into statues and idolatry and for a time there three popes in operation at the same time! And ever since 1524, they haven’t FORGIVEN each over. The sin of schism hangs ugly over their heads to this very day. What they have become are two denominations. We had to get off the stick and partner with abracadabra again. What about Scripture?
Now we might have a problem with that text that even abracadabra can’t fix? Hmmm?
