“WORSHIP WITHOUT OBEDIENCE IS LIKE FAITH WITHOUT WORKS”

Obedience to Gods Heart

When I was a boy, the community seemed to care for each other and worship with others regardless of their denominational distinctions. But as I have had the cloak of naivety and innocence removed from my eyes over the years, I realize that it was all a pretense.

Some Christian churches are some of the biggest practitioners of religious bigotry there is.

In the town where I was reared, community residence used to share worship time with each other regardless of denominational differences. But as the years have progressed so has the divide.

Some denominations will not worship with another denomination.

Households are divided along denominational lines and religious traditions. A husband attends a Baptist church while his wife attends a Methodist church and their children are confused about it all and choose not to attend any church.

Churches within 50 feet of one another whose time of worship are exactly the same cannot worship together under the same roof because of denominational distinctions, religious traditions, church polity, denominational rules and guidelines, fabricated and unscriptural protocols and politics. Yet, they like to lie and say that they are all serving the same GOD.

REALLY???

One church believes in Calvinism. One Church believes in Methodism. One practices Catholicism and the other believes in Pentecostalism and yet others may espouse Fundamentalism, Humanism or Scientology. Regardless of their ism’s, they are all out of the will and order of GOD. And although they may appear to be worshippers of YHVH. But they are not. (2 Timothy 3:5)

They worship their own man-made image of GOD and they worship in the temple of their gods, effectively committing idolatry while deluding themselves into thinking that they are worshiping the TRUE and LIVING GOD in the Way that He prescribes to be worshiped. (Matthew 7:21-23)

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES RECORDS THE APOSTLE OF CHRIST SAYING:

“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 Cor. 1:10)

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES ALSO RECORDS CHRIST AS HAVING SAID:

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35)

Where is the unity and ONENESS? Where is the ONE LOVE? Where is the OBEDIENCE?

I see the Catholic and the Protestant Churches.

I see the variations of Christian churches and belief systems.

But Where Is The Ekklesia of CHRIST – The Bride Adorned for her Groom?

Where are the obedient and loving children of YHVH?

Where are those who worship in the SPIRIT of HOLINESS?

Where are those who worship in the WAY of TRUTH and LIFE?

WHERE?

Father seeks worship in spirit and truth

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.

TODAY’S SABBATH MESSAGE / February 14, 2015 Special Valentine’s Day Edition / “Is Your Worship In Vain”

Valentine Day vs Sabbath 2

…’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 7:7-9)

The world and her lying god and her lying churches and her lying preachers have deceived many well-intentioned believers as well as some well-intentioned Pastors into thinking that there is nothing wrong with observing pagan traditions and man-made celebrations and holidays while setting aside God’s Holy Days as being antiquated, old-fashioned, obsolete and no longer needed. The Bible records Jesus as saying that the religious leaders are “experts at setting aside the commandment of God in order to keep their tradition.”

Many do not realize that man’s traditions and ceremonies do not belong to God. And although many of man’s traditional holidays and traditions are veiled in seemingly harmless gestures of love and caring, they are not ordained by God or supported by His WORD and can never usurp or replace God’s Eternal Law and Commandments.

There are some man-made traditions, ceremonies and holidays that are actually vile and disgusting to God and He forbids His people from ever participating in them or imitating them in any way whatsoever. His name and His people are to be forever separated from them. God vehemently rejects any worship of Him that is tainted with the traditions of the world and her pagan celebrations. It is reprehensible for a child of God to relate The Holy Father and/or His name to the works of evil men and their pagan festivals. The world belongs to Satan but we belong to the Kingdom of God. And as God’s people, there are some things that we cannot do and be a true worshiper of Father YHVH. (Deuteronomy 12:4)

On this Sabbath Day of February 14, 2015, many who call themselves Christians and who believe themselves to be saved will not observe the Sabbath but celebrate the pagan day called Valentine’s Day. Satan’s priests and experts have cleverly and effectively disguised this wanton disobedience as being harmless and have called it “a day of love.” Satan has completely draped the tradition of Valentine’s Day in a shroud of misguided emotions and perpetual commercialism – perverting what “Love” truly is. (Please reference the page entitled “Do You Want To Know What Love Is?”)

I assure you that God doesn’t approve of Valentine’s Day nor does He approve of those who celebrate Valentine’s Day while setting aside His Commandment to observe His Seventh Day Sabbath. He plainly and clearly says that to set aside His Sabbath Day while upholding the traditions of Valentine’s Day makes one a vain, ineffective and worthless worshiper.

The Eternal Commandment (LAW) of God recorded in Exodus 20:8-11 tells us what day that the Lord commands and expects for us to observe in our worship of Him. However many have chosen to try to change what cannot be changed and set aside what cannot be set aside. (Daniel 7:25)

“Remember the day, Shabbat, to set it apart for God (Keep It Holy). You have six days to labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Shabbat for Adonai your God. On it, you are not to do any kind of work — not you, your son or your daughter, not your male or female slave, not your livestock, and not the foreigner staying with you inside the gates to your property. For in six days, Adonai made heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them; but on the seventh day he rested. This is why Adonai blessed the day, Shabbat, and separated it for himself.

Let us hear what God says in Exodus 31:16-17

‘So the sons of Israel shall observe the Sabbath, to celebrate the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant.’ “It is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel forever; for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day He ceased from labor, and was refreshed.”

If we belong to Christ, then we are Abraham’s seed (Israelites), and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:29) We are bound by an everlasting covenant in blood through Christ that is a perpetual sign of our adoption as sons and daughters of God.

Those who are not washed in the blood of Christ by water baptism in His name and gifted with the Holy Spirit as evidenced through the speaking in tongues are not heirs of Abraham and as such are not bound in covenant relationship with Father God. And neither can they perceive the things of God. Therefore, not everyone will be able to receive this revelation from God. It may even be difficult for those who are born again but trapped by their own lust and desire for the world to accept this revelation.

It is my prayer and hope that someone seeking salvation and a closer and more abiding relationship with the FATHER may be drawn out of the darkness of man’s traditions and holidays into the marvelous Light of CHRIST.

Ultimately, we all have to decide whether we want our worship of God to be pure and holy and untainted with the stench of rebellion, disobedience and paganism.

We have to make up our hearts and minds if we are going to be the glorious church that Christ is returning for, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but holy and without blemish or are we going to continue to worship Him in vain.

“Now, therefore, fear the LORD and serve Him in sincerity and truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD. “If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (Joshua 24:14-15)

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE plus My Song of Testimony and Praise

The Master's Table

About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). ~ Matthew 27:46

bar47

If you have ever felt as if God wasn’t near or as if God abandoned you, you are not alone. And it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have moved far away from God. If you are saved, it could mean that you are in the perfect will of God and your present circumstances are just temporary.

God may be using your suffering to help others.

In spite of our pains, troubles, disappointments and many sufferings, we must still trust God and never doubt him for in the end we are going to win.

I Am Not Ashamed

I am Not Ashamed of the Gospel

It is disturbing to think that folks will ridicule and ostracize us if we say that we don’t like Tyler Perry’s movies, plays and television shows because of some of his questionable Christian themes, messages and views. It is unsettling to think that some people will think negatively of us if we dare to voice that we can’t stand Denzel Washington or George Clooney or that we don’t like gangster rap music or the music or Celine Dion, Frank Sinatra, Beyoncé Knowles, Bobby Jones Gospel or Yolanda Adams. It is frightening to think that some folks will seek to do us harm is we dare call T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen or some other preacher a false prophet.

Yet these same condemnatory folks will not ridicule, criticize or ostracize those folks who dare say that God is wrong for condemning homosexuality. These same censorious individuals withhold condemnation from those who condemn God’s Word of righteousness, holiness and sexual purity.

Through their silence, these same disparaging spirits give consent and support to those who brazenly oppose God, redefine God’s institution of marriage and promote the legalization of sexual perversion.

These folks don’t belong to God. Their father is Satan and they rejoice in his desires.

Whereas everyone is entitled to various tastes in actors, singers and artists, there is but One choice for Eternal Salvation—Christ Jesus—The WORD of God!

God’s Way Is The Only Way. And anyone who dares to oppose God’s Eternal Moral Law must be exposed, admonished, rebuked and challenged to repent.

It is easy to go along with the popular trends and keep silent in the face of moral controversy but authentic children of Yahweh will always speak out and stand up for Father God and His righteousness.

For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. ~ Luke 9:26

I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE

The Master's Table

“Then Satan entered Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve apostles.  Judas went to the chief priests and the temple guards and discussed with them how he could betray Yeshua. They were pleased and agreed to give him some money…Yeshua said to him, ‘Judas, do you intend to betray the Son of Man with a kiss?’” (Luke 22:3-5, 48)

bar47

A friend that Jesus knew and trusted betrayed him and was instrumental in His crucifixion. Judas used his friendship with Jesus and Jesus’ love for him for personal gain and profit. He conspired with Jesus’ enemies to destroy him.

1 Peter-4-12

Unlike Jesus, we may not know who our betrayer is. However, as a Christian, we should be prepared to be betrayed and to suffer at the hands of those whom we love and trust.

If our Lord and Savior was betrayed by his friend and follower, we will be also.

TRUTH!

My Song Of Testimony And Praise / God Will Provide

This week’s Song of Testimony and Praise is sent out to those of us who are going through one thing or another. I pray that this song encourages us to hold on and trust God just a little while longer.

“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.” (Psalm 34:19)

“I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” (Psalm 37:25)
