TODAY’S SABBATH DAY MESSAGE / “Setting Things Straight”

Seminary Books_orig1

Have you noticed that the Christian Church has changed to imitate the protocols and methods of the world? More and more churches are seeking Pastors with Masters and Doctorate degrees. They are more concerned about the prospective pastor’s credentials than they are about his morals and his salvation. Some even set the pastor’s salary according to what level of education he has achieved. This is worldly and has no foundation in Holy Scripture. THIS IS NOT OF GOD!

Education is good. We should get as much education as we can afford or that is afforded to us. The more tools and skills that we have to use for the work of the kingdom of God the better. BUT DON’T GET IT TWISTED! We cannot qualify or certify to be God’s Preacher and Servant through Bible Colleges or Seminaries. God is not impressed with your diplomas, degrees, certificates or any such man contrived prerequisites.

  • You must first have heard and believed the TRUE Gospel of Salvation through Yehowshua HaMashiach – Jesus the Christ). ( Mark 1:15)
  • You must be born-again of the water and of the Spirit according to the scriptures. (John 3:3-7 and Acts 2:38)
  • You must spend time in the presence of GOD and with the Messiah – God’s Living Word. 
  • You must wait to be sent by God and not by man’s institutions of religious organizations. (Romans 10:15)
  • Then you must go forth in the assurance and power of the Holy Ghost – being led by the Spirit and not by the flesh. (Acts 20:28)

These five points do not take the place of an education but place education in its rightful place.

REPENT!

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

The Master's Table

“Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.” ~ Revelations 22:11

Sometimes we have to accept the fact that folks are going to be just who they are going to be.

But when I speak to you, I will open your mouth and you shall say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says.’ Whoever will listen let them listen, and whoever will refuse let them refuse; for they are a rebellious people. ~ Ezekiel 3:27

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.

Have You Done Enough In The Fight Against Sin?

Brainwashed

Have you ever watched cartoons with your children? Have ever spent some time analyzing what messages are being sent through television, movies, videos and special programs?

Children spend more time with their televisions and digital media devices than they do listening and sharing with their parents. (Shame on the parents)

Have you noticed that almost every action cartoon like “The Spectacular Spider Man” or “The Justice League” or “Dragon Ball” are all violent shows shrouded in some fabricated sense of social righteousness?

Have you ever wondered how these type programs affect young minds that have not yet fully developed their Christian Moral Consciousness or godly Character? These things twist the truth and send a message that conflict can be resolved with violence.

Are you aware that young minds and hearts are easier to train, indoctrinate and control?

Why do you think that the world media entities and militaries are purposely targeting the young and undeveloped minds? Could it be to modify their morals and change their beliefs and behaviors so as to make them more easily susceptible to direct orders, subliminal suggestions and mass brainwashing that serves the purpose of the State/Nation/Satan?

Why are we so accustomed to violence these days and not abhorred or sickened by the viciousness and ungodly ways that lives are being destroyed and folks are being killed, murdered, raped and tortured at an ever increasing rate? Could it be that we have been conditioned through various television shows and news broadcasts not to feel disgust at the satanic horrors and vile spiritual filth (homosexuality, fornication, lewdness, drunkenness, murder, treachery and licentiousness) that surround us everyday? Could it be that we have had our sense of right and wrong twisted or redefined by the god of this world so that we no longer experience “righteous indignation” and a genuine fear of God?

The brainwashing has already begun and the evidence is in the condition of our world, our children, ourselves and our lack of righteous indignation at open homosexuality, the legalization of sexual immorality and the vicious and murderous assault of Satan on God’s Eternal Laws, Christ (God’s living WORD) and Christians everywhere.

Have you noticed that things aren’t as good as some pretend that they are?

Freedom of religion has become an intolerable nuisance to the world, especially if that Faith opposes unrighteousness, homosexuality or any other sexual immorality?

Hebrews 12 Resist Sin

It Wasn’t Always this Way!

Wake Up!

Rise Up!

It is not time for sleeping. The battle has begun.

Fight the Good Fight of Faith.

Resist the Devil!

We have not yet resisted unto death. So fight harder, speak louder and more frequently and stand strong in the Lord!

“You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin.” (Hebrews 12:4)

God Can’t Use A Coward Soldier!

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE

The Master's Table

“As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless.” ~ Psalm 18:30

God is right all of the time in everything that He does and says and there is nothing we can say, teach, preach, sing or shout to change His perfect will.

Get on board His program or be lost!

Repent!

It has been a genuine joy and an awesome privilege to share with each and everyone this year. May God bless all of you for your kind support as the O.W. Prince Ministries closes its pages from any further postings in the year 2013 and takes a light sabbatical in the year 2014. You are always welcomed to access my radio broadcasts and posting archives from my WordPress Homepage.

This time last year I was in Critical Care at Baptist Memorial Hospital, Columbia, SC. But by God’s grace and mercy, I am still here and I am so grateful that God spared my life to be here. (Hallelujah!) I am also very grateful for all of the many friends and acquaintances that I have met through WordPress, FaceBook, LinkedIn and BlogTalkRadio. You have been a blessing to me.

Now it is my desire that you prosper in the upcoming New Year even as your soul prospers in the things of God in Christ.

Keep looking up!

Love ya,

Bishop

“Should Christians Compete for the Souls of Men?”

Jude 1_3 earnestly-contending

On the next episode of Rediscovering Biblical Christianity, we will be discussing the phenomenon of religious advertisements and their impact upon the genuine Christian Faith. We will attempt to bring awareness to the devices of Satan and answer some questions as to whether or not some church and ministry advertisements truly reflect the principles and uphold the integrity of God’s Holy Word.

Join me on Saturday mornings at 11:00 A.M. on the O.W. Prince Radio Network and Rediscover Biblical Christianity.
