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.

“A Prayer For The Salvation Of Our Children” by Bishop O.W. Prince

Prayer Luke-2.52

(Picture is by MorningJoyComposition.com)

I pray that all disobedient children are made miserable until such time as they repent and turn to God and embrace His righteousness.

I pray that those who have ignored God’s Commandments may themselves be overlooked and ignored until such time as they repent and the LORD becomes priority in their lives.

I pray that every ungodly task, venture, activity and plan that they put their hands, minds and energies to fails miserably until they repent and return to the giver of every good and perfect gift.

I pray that they aren’t killed, maimed or lose their health while consorting with sin but that the Lord would have mercy upon them for Christ’s sake and draw them out of darkness unto repentance and salvation.

I pray that they never find a comfortable place outside of the will of God.

This is my prayer in the name of Christ Jesus, Amen!

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE – “A Time To Hate” / August 12, 2014 Edition

The Master's Table

Adonai, how I hate those who hate you! I feel such disgust with those who defy you! I hate them with unlimited hatred! They have become my enemies too.  ~ Psalm 139:21-22 (CJB)

Adulterers! Do you not know that the love of this world is hatred toward God? Therefore whoever chooses to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God. ~ James 4:4 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English)

Are You A Happy Fool?

Brainwashed Soren Kierkeggard

Some folks want the power, worldly honor, respect and prestige that sometimes come with the preaching profession. Some people want to preach so bad that they will sell their souls and their integrity for the chance to preach and/or pastor.

Some will say and do anything for the privilege of preaching from a pulpit. They will refuse to teach God’s Holy and Eternal Commandments and, instead, tell funny and entertaining stories that only appear to have a Christian theme. Many have abandoned God’s “One True Way” – if they ever knew the Way – and have adopted and professed the world’s moral/politically correct agenda as The Way. They have redefined; modified and perverted (Twisted) God’s Word to fit their own sinful lifestyles and fabricated social morality. They are not agents of God nor were they sent from God but they are hired servants – slaves of institutional religion and religious philosophies – ministers of Satan.

I have experienced several pastors and preachers who have shrunk away from God’s Eternal Standard of Truth and are now preaching and teaching “church/religious” doctrines that are foreign to Christ and His Apostles. They have redefined God’s gender roles in the Church to fit their ideologies of sexual equality and fairness in the workplace. (((This Is Not of God and Cannot Be Made to Apply to His Church.)))

They have encouraged fornication and adultery in the church by sugar-coating God’s Eternal Moral Commandments and tolerating and celebrating those who violate God’s Law. (((They have baby showers in the church for single mothers. Where are the fathers? And some have openly gay choir directors, musicians and homosexual members working in the church.))) Some Pastors have a reputation of being gay themselves and some habitually participate in sexual immorality. They have spewed sweet-sounding rhetoric along with platitudes and fairy tales to convince dying souls that they are saved with only a “sinner’s prayer” or a profession of faith. They lie to folks that God’s Love Will Cover their sins without any real repentance or obedience.

Many pastors and preachers have been told the truth. I know this because I have told them along with many other “Truth Teachers.”  But they refuse to believe and thus condemn themselves. Many intentionally lie to themselves and others about God’s Command to be Believe the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, Repent, be Buried with Christ by Baptism into water in His name and receive the Holy Spirit of Promise.

It greatly disturbs me to think that it is so important for some folks to be accepted as a preacher that they would “simplify” the salvation command (Acts 2:23) into simply “believing.”  They have put countless souls on the broad path of error and in danger of Hellfire.

It sickens me to think that there are so-called pastors/preachers who are only motivated by popularity, greed, self-fulfillment, lust, power, honor and accolades. Some even skillfully and convincingly play the loving, poor, suffering, humble country preacher role so as to hide their true nature, character and financial agenda. As long as they can draw a crowd to listen to them, they are happy. As long as they are still being called as a paid guest speaker, they are content. As long as they can occupy the office of Pastor, they are considered successful. As long as they can get paid for working minimum hours and serving in a plush contemporary environment where their words carry weight and power, they are happy. As long as they can tickle folk’s ears, encourage them without rebuking their sins and get rich in the process, they are ecstatic.

Don't Judge Me

I wonder how happy they will be at the judgment seat of God when He says “Depart from me you lawless, wicked and disobedient sinners. I don’t know you and you never knew me.”

I wonder how happy they will be at the judgment seat of God when God rejects them just as they rejected His Eternal and unchanging Law and His Eternal Way of Salvation in Christ.

I wonder how happy they will be at the judgment seat of God when they discover that their 50 plus years of service in an institutional church was not in service to God but to Satan.

I wonder how happy some of those jokers will be at the judgment seat of God when they discover that their accolades, awards, degrees and time served were all for the devil and not for the glory of God.

I wonder how happy some of those Doctors of Divinity and Doctors of Religious Education will be when they discover at the Judgment seat of God that they are actually ignorant of God’s Word, Way and Will and that their credentials mean nothing to God.

I wonder how happy will those who followed these lying preacher be when they lift their eyes in hell having known the Truth but rejecting it.

How Happy Are You?

TODAY’S SABBATH MESSAGE / “THE HOLY BIBLE VERSUS THE HOLY SPIRIT” – Has the Bible Become Our god?

Bible Knowing the Bible

I think that some of us need to remember and others of us need to be informed that the Bible, as we know it today, did not exist in the original Church (Ekklesia) of Yehowshua founded by His Apostles.

The One True Body of Believers – the Ekklesia – were totally dependent upon the Power, Revelation and Demonstration of God’s Holy Spirit through the Words of Christ’s Apostles with whom He established His Church (Ekklesia).

The Apostles of Christ would refer to The Holy Scriptures (The Torah / Pentateuch) at times to confirm, affirm and proclaim the fulfillment of the promises of God in Christ Jesus our LORD and Savior.  Christ himself often proclaimed that the Holy Scriptures were fulfilled in Him and that The Holy Spirit would reveal all divinely hidden Knowledge and Truth.

Jesus said that “the Helper – the Holy Spirit – whom the Father will send in His name, He will teach us all things, and bring to our remembrance all that He said to us.” (John 14:26)

“The Holy Spirit does the teaching – not the Bible. Text books are sometimes necessary for information but a teacher is required for revelation” (Bishop O.W. Prince)

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” (John 16:13)

Jesus promises us that the Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth and he assures us that we can trust what the Holy Spirit speaks because what the Holy Spirit speaks is revelation directly from The Holy Father and not from sinful man.

God’s Truth Cannot Simply Be Obtained, Cataloged, Inventoried or Archived by way of Human Intellect, Human Wisdom or Philosophical/Theological Disciplines or Documentation or Compilation in a Book or Books. 

God’s Saving Power, Wisdom, knowledge and Understanding cannot be contained within the pages of a book or a collection of books. God is simply too much God for that. (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Without the Revelation Power of The Holy Spirit of Christ, the Bible is just another book of information.

1 Corinthians 1:20
“Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

1 Corinthians 3:19-20
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is THE ONE WHO CATCHES THE WISE IN THEIR CRAFTINESS”; and again, “THE LORD KNOWS THE REASONINGS of the wise, THAT THEY ARE USELESS.”

Jesus is recorded as having said that The Father purposely hid the mysteries of Heaven and The Kingdom of God from the wise and learned of this world and chose only to reveal them to those who have become His little children. (Matthew 11:25)

Now don’t misunderstand me. I believe that Holy Scripture is contained within the Bible but biblical literary history reveals that over 600 books of Holy Scripture was also omitted from the Bible by unconverted men with evil or political motives and agendas. And even today, many groups are re-writing the pages of the Bible so as to support their human philosophical views of faith and salvation. They subtly and brilliantly try to make God’s Word agree with their theologies and philosophies. Because of this, everyone is confused and at odds with each other. There are just too many versions of the One Saving Truth for anyone to tell which is real and which is false. Without the discerning power of God’s Holy Spirit, we are confused and lost (1 Corinthians 14:33).

Furthermore, reading the Holy Bible doesn’t make us saved saint. If that were the case, I would have been saved the very first that time I read the whole Bible. If that were true, then only those who could read would be saved. If reading the Bible and studying Holy Scriptures alone could save then every Hebrew, Jew, Israelite, Rabbi, Scribe, Pharisee, Bible student and every literate human being would be saved and those who were illiterate (unable to read) would be lost. If the Bible was the complete saving work of God, then Christ’s Crucifixion was not necessary. Reading and studying The Bible is all that would be necessary for salvation and rebirth. Salvation would be a human intellectual endeavor of self-improvement and self-salvation. But God forbid such blasphemy.

Thank God that eternal salvation comes only through the Blood of Christ. The Holy Bible, or rather, the Holy Scriptures contained within its pages, can lead one to the giver of Eternal Life and point one in the direction of genuine salvation but it never claims to be the source of Salvation or to be God.

The “Bible” is not to be worship as if it were God or trusted as if it were a sources of divine revelation and salvation, but it is a tool that can be used by God to reveal His Truth to us through His Holy Spirit – especially to those have been gifted with His Holy Spirit.

Remember that Jesus told Peter that, “Flesh and blood did not reveal who He is and that the divine revelation of who He is was not learned through any human means, but The Father who is in heaven revealed it.  And that it would be upon such powers of revelation that He would establish His Ekkesia (Church). (Matthew 16:16-18)

The prudent and repentful should want to know how to receive His Holy Spirit (The Divine Teacher Revelator).

Many have searched the scriptures looking for eternal life (John 5:39) but the scriptures testify of Christ and Christ testifies of God the Father who promises to send the Holy Teacher, Guide and Comforter to those who have obeyed His Commandments regarding entering His eternal Kingdom (John 3:3-7 and Acts 2:38). This is why I stress the importance of having a genuine man of God who is anointed by God with His Holy Spirit to guide and teach us in the things of God.

“Without the Holy Spirit of God, a Pastor-Preacher is just another paid public speaker spouting philosophies and theological rhetoric and social assumptions out of his won imagination. He is like sounding brass and tinkling cymbals, signifying nothing.”

Don’t make the assumption that the Bible is the literal and infallible Word of GOD. CHRIST JESUS IS THE INFALLIBLE LIVING WORD OF GOD (JOHN 1).

God said that He would send the comforter to lead us into all truth. He never said that He would send the Bible to lead us into all truth. The Bible is an incomplete collection of Holy Scriptures. And because much of the original language and text of Holy Scripture was either lost or persecuted out of existence, what remains is subject to interpretation. And the only interpretation that can be trusted is the Holy Spirit of God – the original writer of sacred text. The Holy Spirit searches and reveals the deep things of God.

But man has tried to usurp this divine Law and principle through theological studies. Man has placed his intellectual prowess above the revealing Power of the Holy Spirit. Thus we have Doctors of Divinity and other academia credentialed experts preaching what their intellect has revealed instead of what God’s Holy Spirit has spoken.

Because of man’s reliance upon his on understanding and thoughts about God, we now have the Presbyterian thought, the Catholic thought, the Methodist thought and the Non-Denominational thought and many others distinctions of thought.

Ezekiel 13 says that they are preaching out of their own imaginations…prophesying out of their own thoughts and that The LORD is against them.

WOW!!!

Now if you are interested in knowing the truth and entering the Kingdom of God, The Holy Scriptures point the way but we have to obey what is commanded in the Holy Scriptures in order to begin to see what God is saying.

Jesus said to Nicodemus, “unless a person is born again from above, he cannot see (understand, comprehend, and grasp hold of) the Kingdom of God… unless a person is born from water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.

Unless we are born of water baptism in the name of Christ Jesus and indwelt with His Holy Spirit we cannot enter Heaven.

“We Must Be Born Again!”

Everyone needs to know that Eternal Life is not found in the Bible but in Christ Jesus our LORD.

Everyone needs to know that reading the Bible may be good religion but Faith comes by hearing the Word of Christ (The Anointed One of God) and salvation comes from obeying His Living Word.

On the day of Pentecost when Peter spoke to the multitude in Acts 2, He didn’t have a Bible, but he had the Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit gave directions for salvation that day and everyday since. He said…

“Turn from sin, (Repent) return to God, and each of you be immersed in water–Baptized in the authority of Yeshua the Messiah for forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Ruach HaKodesh (The Holy Spirit of God)!  For the promise is for you, for your children, and for those far away — as many as Adonai our God may call!”

This was the Holy Spirit speaking through the Apostle Peter to all of us today. He spoke these commands as from God Himself without there ever having been a Bible or a Torah to quote from. These instructions and commands had not previously been documented anywhere else. They were not yet canonized as Holy Scripture.  But because they were spoken by the Holy Spirit, they carried the Power of God Himself – the power of Life eternal and they cannot be changed.

Now many years later, letters and books were collected that later became known as the Bible and in the Bible are Holy Scriptures written by The Holy Spirit. And regardless of how many translations, mistranslations and interpretations that man may produce of this holy work, Only its Author can reveal what He really means in His Word.

I believe in and fully support the written text of Holy Scripture. Reading, studying and deciphering The Word of God is good and highly recommended and necessary in order for us to know how to respond to the revelation of God in Christ.  Studying the Bible takes us just so far then we have to choose to Trust and Obey what is commanded of us. And if we stopped there, we would be no better off than the scribes and pharisees of ancient times.  But Christ Jesus promises us a more excellent teacher – The Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit of promise is the One who reveals to us the deep things of God and the mysteries of the Bible (Romans 10:17, Galatians 3:2-5, Colossians 3:16,  1 Thessalonian 2:13, John 14:17 and John 14:26, 1 John 5:6).

Note that the listeners of Acts 2:37-41, without the benefit of a Bible, heard the Gospel message, believed, obeyed and 3,000 souls were added to the Ekklesia that day.

Everyone needs to know that when it comes to knowing the Bible, knowing its Author is better.

The Holy Spirit is Essential and MANDATORY FOR revelation and SALVATION!

I assure you that I stand deathly afraid of saying the wrong thing about God and His Holy Spirit.

I must trust and obey the Holy Spirit in all areas of my life – for I am in utter ignorance without the revelation, knowledge, wisdom and understanding of the Holy Spirit.

I hold the written Word of God as Sacred and Holy but due to Satan’s deceptions and man’s corruption of the written Word, I then must depend on the author of the written Word to tell me What His Word means. I dare not trust my own feeble and sinful intellect, imagination or understanding.

Now Don’t Get It Twisted!

I love the Bible but I love its Author More.

All glory and honor belongs to God the Father in the name of Christ our Lord.

May The Holy Spirit Reveal God’s Saving Truth To You and All Who Read This Commentary.

Amen.

Finally Free To Preach (Taken From The “Bishop’s Corner”)

2-timothy-4-2-preach-the-word-blue_581584627

We are living in the age of the prophetic. That is to say THE END-TIME where what was prophesied regarding man’s rebellion against God and His divine order is coming to pass in our lifetime.  (Unlike what the false prophets call the prophetic) There is no time left.  The kingdom of God is literally at hand.  And it is the Kingdom message that I am totally concerned with.  I sleep, eat, drink, talk, think, dream, walk the message of Repentance, Obedience and Submission. God is the BOSS.  And I am happy to work for Him.  There is nothing mankind can do for me that my God cannot supply. The Lord has provided and continues to provide.

I was once a slave to religion, denominationalism, theology, societal trends and political correctness. But I have been set free by the TRUTH. I am free and I am never going back into slavery again. Although my way may be rough, I have joy. Although my friends may be few, I have a better friend in Jesus. Although I live in poverty, I am rich in the Kingdom of God. I have the hope of eternal life in Christ Jesus because I do those things that please God and bring Him Glory. I have no love for the world for the love of the world is enmity against God. My eyes are cast toward Heaven where my treasures are stored.

I thirst but water doesn’t quench my thirst. I hunger but food doesn’t satisfy me. My flesh and my heart fail but medicine doesn’t revive me.  God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Hallelujah.  Amen!

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE

The Master's Table“The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:8)

bar47

The above scripture text is apart of a larger scripture lesson on the re-birth salvation plan of God – John 3:1-17.   But for the purpose of our edification, we shall only focus on verse 8.

In verse 8, Jesus uses the “wind” to demonstrate or paint a picture of the character of those who have been truly born again – born of the water and of the Spirit. In this part of his discussion with Nicodemus, he is describing the character and behavior of those born again and endowed with the Holy Spirit. 

We all understand that the wind is air in motion. It is invisible.  No one can see it but we can all hear it, feel it and see its effects and impact upon our environment.

This can mean that those who are born of Water and the Spirit now exist in a different dimension than those who are not.   The Holy Spirit causes us to act, think, feel and perceive differently from the world.  So those who are not born of the Spirit of Holiness can not discern (see) or understand (comprehend) where we come from and where we may go.  They can only observe our impact on the environment as we move (blow) through.   They can hear us, feel our presence, see the effects of our movement but never understand us or from whence we come.

As 1 Corinthians 2:14 says:
“The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.”
