IT IS PERSONAL TO ME

Wisdom  Rock Guide Children by Example

Praise the LORD everybody and Blessed Sabbath to all.

I feel compelled and led to share something with you.

Maybe you didn’t know this but I begin documenting on the internet over 15 years ago through various Newsletter Blogs and pages and eventual on WordPress and FaceBook because I wanted to leave a legacy and a memorial of who I am for my children to have access to after I am gone.

I had then and still have today, significant personal reasons why I have to redeem the time as expeditiously and as effectively as I can and given the fact that I have nothing of material or financial worth to leave, I thought that I would leave my Faith. And the best way that I thought to accomplish this is through documentation the world-wide web.

Any parent who has come face-to-face with their own mortality will attest to the fact that we would like their children to remember the very best about them and their love for them. And what better legacy to leave our children than your testimony of Christ and your wisdom and Faith in God.

In today’s atmosphere of parental alienation, many children are being denied the Faith, love and intimate relationship of one of their parents. Therefore, we must sometimes think of creative ways to tell our posterity that we love them and that we wish to be there for them even in our death.

Therefore I write for my children’s sake just like I write for the sake of the Kingdom of God. I am motivated to save my children and lead them the right way and by being so motivated by love, the LORD has Chosen to lay His Hands on me and endow me with a love and passion that spills over into this ministry and its articles – benefiting more that my children but those who have no relationship to me.

This is not surprising since God’s love for the Hebrew Nation spilled over into love for the whole world and blessed the gentiles too with the offer of eternal life.

Being filled with selfless and sacrificial love is to be acquainted with GOD WHO is LOVE. And HIS LOVE is beyond explanation. ALL that we can say is that GOD so Loved us that He Gave of Himself to save us while we were yet unsaved and unrelated to Him.  He imputed His Own righteousness to us through the veil of HIS SON’S Flesh and He Poured out the price of our redemption through the shedding of HIS ONLY SON’S BLOOD.

OH WHAT INEXPLICABLE LOVE THIS IS!

And it is because of God’s Love for Me that I so eagerly share with you what I initially was motivated to share only with my offspring. God’s love will make you reach beyond yourself to touch and impact the lives and hearts of those who hate you as well as those who love you.

Everyone is not going to understand this but it is for who it is for.

MAY YHVH BE PRAISED!

Now for what I feel led to share:

When FATHER YHVH says “I GOT THIS” we need to let it go and leave it in HIS Hands. But that doesn’t mean that we should be idle and irresponsible and lie on the bed immorality or recline on the couch of do nothing. To the contrary.  We should be about our FATHER’S business; following HIS instructions (Commandments) so that we may be in the proper position and place to benefit from HIM having dealt with our issues.

Example: If I tell my daughter that “I have got this” regarding a need of hers and she knows my commandments and instructions and she is very familiar with my WAY yet she refuses to obey and honor my Way and although I took care of her concern and I have sent her everything that she asks for and a little bit more, she cannot receive them because I sent them to 238 Obedient Faith Boulevard and she has moved to 666 Father Haters Circle.  She is out of place and out of her blessing because of her disobedience.  

We have to be in the right place with God to receive the benefits of His intervening on our behalf.

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE / “I DON’T FIT” / May Edition

fit it

Ok, let’s examine how some confusing stuff gets started.

One day you are just minding your own business and somebody comes along and says that you look like an evangelist or a preacher.

Now you know that you are not saved. You know that you have not been born of the water and of the Spirit as Christ commanded in his discourse with Nicodemus. You know in your inner most soul that you are not sent by God to say anything on God’s behalf.  You know that you have not spent any significant quality time with God and you know that the only thing that you know about God is what you heard from someone else.

But since folks are saying that you look like a preacher or an evangelist, you start claiming the title for yourself.

Now because folks have said that you look the part you begin to associate the part with the way that you look instead of with genuine salvation and re-birth. 

In addition, the media and entertainment beasts have propagandized preachers and evangelists in ways that makes one think that all preachers and evangelists must look like the ones on television or in the movies.  And all of these fictitious characters become preachers and evangelists without ever being born again of the water and of the Holy Spirit. (John 3:3-7 and Acts 2:37-42)

Wisdom Low Self esteem

Our whole focus is on looking the part, sounding the part and acting the part. It is all about playing a role for the very ones who placed you in the role to begin with.  It is not about being called, anointed empowered and  sent by God.  It is not about authentic substance and character but about satisfying the prejudice expectations of those who presume to know what an evangelist or preacher should look like.  Umm?

The devil has cleverly painted an image of what a preacher or evangelist should look like in our minds and many of us have bought into that stereotyped and propagandized imagery of Christian ministry – playing the role, dressing the part and reciting the prescribed script expected of us.

We need to remember that Jesus didn’t come imitating the Pharisees.  Christ and his Apostles didn’t take on an image whereby anyone could tell who they were and what their ecclesiastical titles were just by looking at them.  They were never burdened with trying to fit into an evil world’s prescribed roles for them or with trying to accommodate societal expectations of them or with trying to emulate some fabricated imagery of who they should be.

They were persecuted and some were tortured and murdered because they didn’t conform to what the world and her religious leaders thought that they should be. 

Christ was even numbered among gluttons, sinners and drunkards. (Matthew 11:19)

From a totally Christian perspective, it is alright not to fit in with everything and everybody else that may call themselves Christian.

Just be who God called you to be and be like God called you to be. You don’t need to impress anyone or prove to anyone who you are in Christ.  Just keep it real.

We need to remember that we are different by re-birth and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  We should not be made ashamed of our divine uniqueness.  And just because we all don’t look like what some people think that we should look like, we are no less Kingdom Children and we are not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We are a chosen race who serve as Priests for The Kingdom, a holy people, a redeemed assembly; boldly proclaiming the praises of him who called us from darkness into his excellent light.

Therefore, we “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but are transformed by the renewing of our minds.  Thus we are able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)

Preachers Can Go To Hell Too

Humility 2 Bishop Quote

Proverbs 12:15
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.

bar47

The sad truth is that many Pastors, Bishops, Elders, ministers, preachers and evangelist along with many professed Christians will go to Hell. They will be damned because they will not hear what the Holy Spirit is saying and teaching and they will not repent. It is more important for them to be right and justified in their own minds and in the sight of their fellow man than for them to stand corrected in the sight of Almighty God.

Don’t allow your pride and the embarrassment, shame and humiliation at being rebuked keep you out of Heaven. We all need to make serious adjustments from time to time.

No one is 100% correct but God.

Stay humble my friends!

Keeping It Real Pride goes to Hell

THE BLOOD

The blood-of-jesus trangif

“Just because your Faith and church views God’s Commandments as burdensome, strict and non-relenting and therefore obsolete, doesn’t mean that we all feel that way about our God’s commandments.  Some of us find them a delight and we find joy in keeping them. (Psalms 119:46-48)

Just because you are frustrated and angry over the many self-imposed restrictions in your religion, and just because you are so intense to the point where you feel that anyone who doesn’t see the scriptures or practice worship or observe a lot of dos and don’ts as you do is going to hell, doesn’t mean that I am going to hell.  Remember the Pharisees and the Sadducees observed a lot of dos and don’ts also.

Just because you belittle me and dismiss me and cast my name out as evil doesn’t mean that you are more holy and righteous than anyone else.

Just because you summarily dismiss me as wicked, false, damned and lost doesn’t make me wicked, false, damned and lost.

There is a Judge who knows the hearts of men and judges Righteously and True. And before His Throne and on His Right Hand is our Advocate, pleading His own precious Blood for our salvation so that The Supreme Judge of judges will not see my imperfections and sins nor hear your accusations against me but receive the TESTIMONY of The Blood Of His SON and our LORD Jesus CHRIST.”

“Therefore I stand dumb before the Judgment Seat Of YHWH and I choose to know nothing save Christ and Him Crucified.”

May God Have Mercy On Us All and May The Blood of Christ JESUS hide my wretched soul.”

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE – “THERE IS A TIME TO WALK AWAY”

The Master's Table

“The kindness and Love of God saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal (baptism in water in Jesus’ name) and through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit whom He gave us generously through Christ our Savior…” (Titus 3:4-6 – paraphrased)

“…But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and strife and disputes about this Divine and Eternal Law, for disputes are unprofitable and worthless. Reject a factious (argumentative) person after a first and second warning. You can be sure that such a person is perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.” (Titus 3:9-11)

“…and whoever does not believe (obey, trust and submit to the Ways and Word of God) is judged already, because he does not believe in The Name of The Only Begotten Son of God.” (John 3:18)

bar47

Ministers of God’s Saving Truth should continue to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and God’s Eternal Law of Salvation regardless of oppositions and challenges.

However, when challenged about God’s Eternal Way and Word, don’t get caught up in arguments and quarrels. Allow for the Truth to be proclaimed twice, but after that, walk away. They who argue and disagree with God’s Word have no interest in being saved but only in establishing their own philosophies, discrediting your witness and perverting the message of the Kingdom of God. By insisting upon their sinfulness, they have also insisted upon their own condemnation.

Walk Away.

Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:60 NKJV)

Sometimes we get angry and upset with what others are saying and doing that doesn’t represent the true Gospel of The Kingdom of God.  This is only natural.

However, don’t get distracted when you see unrepentful and practicing whoremongers, fornicators, adulterers, drunkards, lesbians, homosexuals and other ungodly folks serving, preaching and Pastoring in a church or ministry.

It is their church and they can do whatever they want to in their churches.

“You go and preach the Kingdom of God!”

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE

The Master's Table

“For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly.” – Romans 12:4-6

“For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body.” – 1 Corinthians 12:13

As of 2012, it is estimated that there are over 43,000 Christian denominations worldwide. For all intent and purposes, these separate organizations do not have any organic relationship with each other. Each owns and controls their pulpit as well as who is allowed to occupy the office of Pastor. They are divided, splintered and in some cases at odds with each other.

This is not what the Bible identifies as Christ’s Church.

The Word of God frowns upon denominational Christianity.

“I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought” – 1 Corinthians 1:10

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? – Jeremiah 17:9

It has been said that we should just follow our hearts. This is what a lot of lovers like to say.  But that is not what the Book of Wisdom recommends. Our hearts, emotions and passions often deceive us and lead us into a world of hurt, disappointments, pain and suffering.  Don’t allow your heart to write a ticket that your soul can’t cash.  Follow Christ.

A Crumb From The Master’s Table

The Master's Table

An Eternal God – An Eternal Word

“And He gave unto Moses, when He had made an end of speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, the two tables of the testimony (The Covenant Commandments), tables of stone, written with the finger of God.” – Exodus 31:18

“And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables.” – Exodus 32:16

“Of old have I known from Thy testimonies (The Covenant Commandments) that Thou hast founded them for ever.” – Psalm 119:152

“The beginning of Thy word is truth; and all Thy righteous ordinance endureth for ever.” – Psalm 119:160

bar47

Traditions change. Thus they are undependable and temporary. Religions change. Thus they are undependable and temporary. Man’s laws and politics changes. Thus they are undependable and temporary. But every Commandment and every Law that God has ever written and decreed is righteous and is established eternally in the Heavens and in the earth.

God is Righteous and Eternal and all of His Laws are Righteous and all of His commandments are eternal.

God says, “For I the LORD change not.” (Malachi 3:6)

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth; but the word of our God shall stand for ever.” (Isaiah 40:8)

Obey The Eternal Word of God!
