TODAY’S SABBATH DAY MESSAGE–“SOME FOLKS MAKE THEMSELVES GOD.”

Marriage joined together

I met someone today who reminded me of how totally prejudice and unloving some so-called Apostolic, Pentecostal Christians can be with regards to their opinions and treatment of divorcees. 

According to this particular Non Denominational Church member, without any knowledge of the particular mitigating circumstances, a divorced person is prohibited from ever marrying again in the Faith.  They are doomed to live a lonely and loveless life because if they dare to marry anew or marry a divorced person, they are excommunicated and ostracized out of the fellowship of their church and pronounced as a practicing adulterer and a damned soul by the church and the pastor.

Thank God that these self-righteous zealous bigots don’t have a hell or a heaven to put me or anyone else in.  Hallelujah!  Thank You Jesus.

We must pray for their enlightenment and their freedom from spiritual ignorance and the twisted, deceitful, unintelligent, hypocritical Scripture interpretations of Satan and her demonic forces.  We must pray for those who hypocritically hold the form of godliness but deny GOD’S Eternal Ten Commandments and reject His Seventh-Day Sabbath by observing sun-god day – the first day of the week- as their sabbath and who turn the Liberty of the Spirit of Christ into a Burdensome Legalistic Version of Literally Interpreted Written Codes. (2 Corinthians 3:17)

“Now the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will depart from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, through the hypocrisy of liars whose consciences are seared.  They forbid marriage…”  (1 Timothy 4:1-3)

But The Apostle of Christ Taught Us This Truth. And That Is That “We Have Liberty In Christ And Not Imprisonment.” (2 Corinthians 3:17)

1 Corinthians 7:15-16 says:
”But if the unbeliever (Those who don’t keep The Commandments of God and of Christ Jesus) leaves, let him (her) leave.  A brother or a sister is not bound (Not married but divorced) in such cases.  God has called you to live in peace.  For you, wife, how do you know whether you will save your husband? Or you, husband, how do you know whether you will save your wife?”

These scriptures are speaking to marriages that took place under the jurisdiction of the Faith and not under the jurisdiction of a civil government authority or license. 

There is a difference. One was joined by mankind’s judicial/civil institution and the other by the hand of GOD Himself.

Caesar is governing authority over one and God is the governing authority over the other.  Thus we render unto Caesar those things that belong to Caesar and unto GOD those things that belong to GOD.

I contend that the Holy Moral Laws and Divine Principles of Holy Scripture cannot be applied to the sinner nor can a sinner understand them.  For they are spiritually discerned through the Holy Spirit by revelation and not through the spirit of intellectualism, religion and denomination or apostolic theology.

I personally know of divorced folks who have been baptized in the name of Jesus Christ by burial under water and who have been gifted by GOD with the Holy Spirit who spoke out of them in tongues and prophesied.  These same individuals later married again within the body of CHRIST and have lived a holy and blessed life ever since.  After they were married to new spouses in the Body of Christ, some of these Saints’ health improved and their happiness increased along with their love and service for GOD.

Now if their divorce was unjust, immoral and ungodly and the intentions of their hearts were so wicked and adulterous, why would God cause His Holy Spirit to live in them?  And since God accepted them by giving them the Holy Spirit, who are we to disavow and disqualify them as Saints of YHVH.

Acts 15:8-9 says:
“And God, who knows the heart, showed His approval by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as He did to us. He made no distinction between us and them, for he cleansed their hearts by faith.…”

We better be careful who we curse and damn.  We may just curse who God has chosen to accept and bless.  Thus making ourselves an enemy of GOD.

TODAY’S SABBATH DAY MESSAGE / “HAVE WE SET GOD ASIDE?”

Sabbath day observance ETENAL

It still amazes me how professed believers in Christ continue to place a lot of importance of observing the traditions of men while nullifying the Commands of God and excusing themselves and others from keeping the revealed SPIRIT of the LAW that CHRIST and HIS Apostles kept and taught.

“BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN. Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men.” He was also saying to them, “You are experts at setting aside the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition.” (Mark 7:8-7-9)

In the above scripture text, Christ expressed the importance of keeping God’s Commandments. He never said that God’s Commandments were to be ignored or that they will pass away. He would not say that since “All of YHVH’S works are perfect, and all HIS ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is HE.” (Deuteronomy 32:4)

Therefore divine perfection doesn’t change and God’s perfection is eternal as He is eternal. (Malachi 3:6)

As a matter of fact, during Jesus’ sermon in Matthew 5 where He was teaching on the Spirit of The Eternal Ten Commandants of God (Not Moses’ Laws) and demonstrating how we are to think about GOD’S Commandment, He said, “Anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:19)

Man’s theology and traditions have managed to teach nations and a multitude of folks to set aside many of the commands of YHVH. (Daniel 7:25) And mankind’s own sinful and arrogant nature has practiced neglecting the commandments of God in favor of their own traditions, festivals and twisted perceptions of righteousness and religions.

SABBATH DAY ETERNAL

This deviation from the TRUTH has gone on for centuries and is so embedded in the Christian thought and mind that it has become commonplace and normal in the majority of Christian congregations to ignore any Commandments of GOD that does not fit into their religious traditions or theological beliefs. A good example of this would be Sunday worship. Sunday has been called the “Christian Sabbath” when in actuality it is not a Sabbath at all nor was it ever acknowledged, practiced, observed or taught as the Sabbath of GOD by CHRIST and His Apostles. Many Christians have set aside the fourth commandment to hold to the traditions of men. (Ref. Who Changed The Sabbath?)

Many professed Christians, and I was one of them, planned for, observed and kept, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Birthdays, Easter, Thanksgiving, Halloween and other manmade occasions like Saint John’s Day, Founder’s day, Church and Pastor Anniversaries and national holidays while totally setting aside many of the eternal Commandments of God.

I have since repented of my ignorance and disobedience and have asked The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY TO please forgive me and to help me to live in such a way as to be Faithful to HIS Commands while obeying HIS call, witnessing to His GREAT LOVE through CHRIST and revealing HIS SAVING TRUTH to All.

Let me be clear. I am not against anything but sin. And the only thing I am advocating for is Repentance that will lead to obedience to all of God’s (YHVH’S) Commandments in CHRIST our LORD and the indwelling of HIS promised gift – The HOLY SPIRIT.

Therefore, before we engage in any of the traditions of men, let us examine ourselves and make doubly sure that we haven’t set aside the Commands of God in favor of manmade traditions, festivals, holidays or events.  Let us examine ourselves against the backdrop of CHRIST and HIS APOSTLES and see if we are seeking to please FATHER YHVH as CHRIST did or are we idol worshipers who are slaves to our traditions.

Let’s be certain that we haven’t set God aside.

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE / “ALL TO CHRIST I OWE”

Jesus PAID IT ALL

You can tell folks who have had a real personal encounter with death or who have had to suffer with a life-threatening illness and have been through the valley of the shadow of death and have not died.  You can tell folks who have had a personal encounter with GOD’S GRACE and have been resurrected with Christ and forgiven from a debt that they could not pay.

These folks appear more grateful than folks who think that they deserve and are entitled to everything that they have. They seem to be more aware of the value of life and the enormous Grace of GOD that allowed them just to live another day.

They don’t want to argue or fight. They don’t want to waste too much time worrying about the world and things of the world. They appear to live in expectation of an ending of all things human and relentlessly prepare for all things eternal and divine. They are grateful souls who, after having been redeemed, realized what great a price was paid for their salvation.  And they are highly motivated to redeem the time by bringing GOD PRAISES and WORSHIP through a committed life OF SERVICE and HOLINESS.

You can tell folks who have had a genuine encounter with THE LORD and who have seen their own worthless wretched condition against the backdrop of YHVH’S HOLINESS and realized that their absolute best moral behavior is as a dung rag in the sight of the ONLY HOLY GOD.

You can tell grateful Saints from Christians because Christians tend to understand that they need to join a church, pay tithes and offerings into an organized Christian institution and believe the gospel in their hearts and confess Christ with their lips and serve in a CATHOLIC or PROTESTANT Faith and they will be saved.

However, Saints know that there is nothing that we can do of our own, no religious institution that we can build and join and no amount of money could we pay that can redeem our lost souls. We are insufficient of ourselves.  Our intellect is too retarded whereas God can take the simple things of the world and confound the minds of the wise.  Our strength is too feeble whereas the storms (Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Floods, Lightening and Thunder and Dark Clouds) that GOD rides upon annihilates the creations of man.  Nothing man-made can withstand even the breath of GOD.  Our righteous account is bankrupt and our reservoir of hope is depleted.  We Need Redemption.  We Need A Savior.  And Jesus Paid It All.

Yes, we can tell folks who have been with Jesus.  They will be the first to say…

“ALL TO CHRIST I OWE.”

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE – “MERRY CHRISTMAS”

jeremiah 10 2 3 4 Christmas tree is idol

I was driving past some elaborate Christmas displays this evening and became sick in my spirit as I was made to understand through the revelation of the HOLY SPIRIT that all of the elaborate Christmas scenes, decorations, colorful lights, fairy tale images of Santa Clause, reindeer, elves, Christmas trees, toys and gifts were all a part of the overall plan of Satan to distract, misdirect, deceive and capture the world and devour the soul of the would-be saint and claim the LORD’s Glory for himself in the name and disguise of the “Christmas spirit.” And we know that the pagan festival of CHRISTMAS , which the world has run after, holds no godly significance to Christ or divine Scriptural or prophetic reference to His birth nor God’s plan and purpose for saving the world. (2 Corinthians 11:14)

And now that I have been gifted by YHVH’S HOLY SPIRIT to actually see how Satan and his religious systems of beliefs have twisted the TRUTH and the True message of Christ birth into something steeped in paganism and  doctrines of demons and man-made traditions, I cannot help but to cry out, “Woe is me. I am ruined for I am a man who lives among a wicked and perverted people who have committed great evil and idolatry in the land in the name of “CHRISTMAS.”

Pagan Christmas

I can hardly believe that I didn’t see this earlier. How can a world that rejects Christ, who celebrates sexual immorality, same-sex marriage and abominations and who doesn’t obey any of God’s eternal moral Commandments and who is void of the Ruah Ha-Kodesh make any claim of knowing anything about CHRIST or what is Holy unto God? (Ezekiel 13)

How can a pagan winter festival that neither Christ nor His Apostles ever acknowledged suddenly be renamed and become the center of attraction to the world and central to Christianity? If the world loves it and celebrates it, shouldn’t the Saints of Yahweh be alarmed? (John 4:4)

If none believers, immoral practitioners and whole towns, cities, countries and nations are running after Christmas when they have refused to run after holiness in Christ, shouldn’t that sound an alarm and indicate caution for the Saints?

Since when has the devil and the wicked cooperated together to worship and honor the TRUE and LIVING God in Spirit and TRUTH? Their worship is not true worship but a well disguised activity of Satan meant to rob, steal and destroy the believers and place their mortal souls at odds with God and with Christ. (1 Peter 5:8)

pagan holidays 2

Through Religious Propaganda, Scriptural Corruption and The Mass Deviation From The Teachings Of Christ and His Apostles By The Great Whore of Babylon and Her Offspring, Satan has infected a lot of Christians with what I term “SPIRITUAL DISSONANCE.” 

SPIRITUAL DISSONANCE maybe defined as a fundamental spiritual conflict resulting from simultaneously held incompatible and reconcilable beliefs, attitudes and practices as with a born again Saint who has a fondness for the pagan practices of Christmas, Valentines and Easter but knows that God forbids His children from engaging in these pagan festivals as they are acts of worship toward idol gods. And we should have no other God except YHVH. (Exodus 20:3, Deuteronomy 12:4 and Jeremiah 10:2)

Many believers in Christ are “Christmas Christians” as opposed to being obedient children of YHVH in Christ. They have been infected with the Christmas spirit as opposed to being filled with the HOLY SPIRIT. They are conflicted and confused – deceived and infected with Spiritual Dissonance.

It is my prayer that the LORD reveals to the readers of this article the damning and sinful ugliness that is so well disguised in the brightness and colorfulness of “Christmas.”

I pray that the HOLY SPIRIT convicts us of violating God’s Eternal Holy Commandments and compels us to repent and diligently seek the righteousness of the KINGDOM of GOD.

I pray for the salvation of every reader of this post and for you to be empowered by GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT to overcome the internal conflict that is SPIRITUAL DISSONANCE and the spiritual blindness that is religion and embrace the marvelous LIGHT of GOD’S Living and HOLY WORD. Amen.

IT DOESN’T MATTER ANYMORE

ENDURE TO THE END

There comes a time when hurt is no longer painful and cries no longer produces tears; when the ones that caused our injuries don’t matter to us anymore and the ones that we once longed for are no longer missed or desired.

If tortured repeatedly and made to suffer for too long, we tend to shut down emotionally and physically in order to survive.  It is an automatic self-preservation mode.  We become cold and virtually impervious to pain stimuli and oblivious to affections, sentiments and emotions.

Sometimes we become hard like the life we were forced to live and the abuses we were forced to endure.  Sometimes we become insincere like the people we were forced to interact with.  And we become task driven, disconnected and impersonal like those who methodically tortured, stripped and divested us of our humanity and extinguished any spark of divinity that once may have existed in us and kept us connected to hope.

We better be careful how we treat and handle people as we can never tell who is hanging on by a thread or who has already been pushed to the edge or whose cup is running over or whose glass is cracked from the enormous pressures and challenges of life.

For some people, life no longer hold any real expectations of joy or pleasure, fulfillment or accomplishment, love or companionship.  For some people, life on earth doesn’t matter anymore. 

The challenge for us is not to focus on this world’s vain offerings but to keep the FAITH and place all of our trust in the eternal hope of God in Christ. 

Only through Christ will our thirst for happiness and hunger for righteous love be truly satisfied and our souls gratified.

“For the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.” (Matthew 24:13)

Can you hear what the SPIRIT is saying to The Ekklesia of CHRIST?

“Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Yeshua The Messiah. No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.” (2 Timothy 2:3-4)

Are you hearing what the SPIRIT is saying to The Ekklesia of CHRIST?
