Jesus Is The Jewish Messiah-For All

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF ‘CHOSEN PEOPLE MINISTRIES’)

 

Dear Friend,

Shalom and Happy New Year! Thank you for your prayers and support for Chosen People Ministries throughout 2017. This year begins our 124th year of ministry! We are excited about what God has done this past year and we are anticipating what He will do in 2018.

A Year in Review

During 2017, your partnership has enabled us to:

  • Have millions of people watch our evangelistic testimony videos,
  • Personally speak to hundreds of Jewish non believers,
  • Influence major seminaries for the sake of Jewish evangelism,
  • Establish new outreach centers in Israel.

Yet most Jewish people still do not believe in Jesus! Let me tell you why!

Jewish people think if they accept Jesus, they will no longer be Jewish. This was my thinking before I accepted Jesus.

As a Jewish person, I was raised with stories of Jewish martyrs who refused to become Christians during the time of the Crusades or the later Pogroms in Eastern Europe. Jewish people usually chose death over conversion.

Do you need to leave your Jewishness behind when you believe in Jesus? The answer is NO! The Bible teaches the opposite, as when a Jewish person believes in Jesus they become the Jewish person God has always wanted them to be! This was the Apostle Paul’s experience (Romans 11:5) and mine.

We have a very positive message. Jesus is the Jewish Messiah–for all! And you do not need give up your Jewishness to believe in Jesus – He makes it more meaningful!  This is exactly what our missionaries have been preaching since our start in 1894.

Plans for 2018

Here is what is in store for the next 12 months: 

  • Complete 100 vibrant video testimonies of Jewish people who have found the Lord.
  • To develop an online video discipleship course in partnership with other ministries that is based on the Sermon on the Mount.
  • Double the number of “Isaiah 53 Explained” books in Hebrew sent to Israeli seekers.
  • Increase our outreach in Israel among young adults, Holocaust survivors and the poor.

He is the promised Messiah after all!

Blessings in 2018!

Your brother,

Mitch

Republican Christians: Quit Being Hypocrites, Put Up, Or Shut Up

 

I use the name Truth Troubles for this Blog Site for a reason, it is because in many cases the ‘truth’ can be inconvenient for our ego’s. Politicians are great at telling people they are speaking the truth on a subject matter when in fact only about 1% of what they are saying is actually the truth. You see, that is speaking the truth, they just don’t tell you about the 99% BS that goes along with their version. When you step on the witness stand in a court room you are told to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help you God. Folks, that, is the only truth, God’s truth, not some version or percent of it.

 

In November of 2016 ‘we the people’ mainly had two horrible habitual liars to choose as our President, which one was the worse for our Country, that is debatable. Weather the Democratic Party or the Republican Party is the most evil is also easily debatable, personally I have no faith in either of them to ever be truthful with the American people. The Democratic Party and their platform of supporting abortion at will make it impossible for many Christians to vote for a Democrat knowing that they will endorse this policy. Yet this article today isn’t about the Christians who vote for Democrats, today, this article is about the Republican Party and their own ‘unholy’ policies.

 

I say unholy policies because of their own ‘platform’ issues. This newest Republican Tax Plan is a good example of the cold-hearted nature of their base beliefs. This Bill is 1,997 pages long, the reason is simple, there are many items other than changing the Tax Code in that Bill. If it were just a simply straight forward Tax Code Bill how many pages would it be? Really, think about it, should it be more than 2 pages, 5, or maybe 10? How about even 100 pages, you can put a lot of words in 100 pages. In this bill are items like not reimbursing teachers for the supplies they have to buy out of their own pockets so their classrooms can have the basic supplies they need. Also items like stopping assistance to the ‘Meals on Wheels’ program which helps feed the poorest of the poor ‘shut in’s’. Also stopping all the funding for PBS. Stopping many of the Federal Grants for poor kids to help them go to College thus also massively hurting thousands of Colleges and Universities. In this Bill is also massive cuts to Medicaid and Medicare which will cause many millions of Americas poorest people to lose their only Insurance. This will also cause many small hospitals around the Nation to have to close as people will again be having to go to their E.R. services when they get sick or injured and when these people can not pay their bills, the Hospitals will go out of business.

 

The Lord tells us all to be kind and charitable, giving and loving. The Republican Party very plainly caters only to the wealthiest 10% or so of our population. Think about this one fact for a moment please, I was born back in the mid 1950’s, in my lifetime there has not been one single minimum wage increase when there has been a Republican in the White House, not one. Trickle down economics does not work folks. It is like saying that the richest folks will be gracious and allow some of the crumbs to be swept onto the floor so the poor don’t starve to death. And the only reason they allow the crumbs is because the working class is the ones who make the products that make the rich, richer. If the people starve to death it might hurt their profit margins. If you think I am being to hard on some folks just think about the Stock Market for a moment. President Trump likes to talk about how well the Market is doing and that is a good thing folks, but the trouble is that it is a horrible thing for the people who can’t afford massive amounts of those Stocks. When a company lays off hundreds or thousands of employees their Stock value goes up right away. When a company moves out of the U.S. to a ‘Third World’ country for cheaper labor costs, their Stock value goes up right away. When Wal-Mart and Target recently gave all of their employees a raise, their Stock value went down right away.

 

Most of us know that many of the largest American companies are flooded in cash right now and that this cash is sitting in offshore banks. This is not illegal if they have followed all of the existing laws in their putting it there, in fact that is quite smart of them. If the CEO’s weren’t taking advantage of these loopholes their stock holders would vote them out of a job. I have heard several times on different news programs where Executives have commented that they have no place to invest this money so they are just hanging onto it as they are looking for better ‘deals’. So, this talk about caring about the wages and living conditions of the working class is really just a bunch of BS. If these companies were paying better wages and benefits to their workers then the whole economy would prosper. If the government actually raised the taxes on the major companies and closed off all of their built-in loop holes then the Nation could invest in our Nations roads, bridges, city infrastructures, education system and health care system.

 

The Democratic Party has lots of its own sins but as I said this article today is about some of the sins of the Republican Party and the Christians who keep putting their ‘Name, their stamp of approval’ to them. If you are a Christian and you are a voter and you choose to vote for any Republican then it is your Christian duty to insist that the Republican politicians start acting like God-fearing Christians or make it very plain that they no longer have your vote. Charity, kindness, love, compassion are staples of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Folks, the teachings of the Republican Party are exactly the opposite of the teachings of Jesus! So, if you are a Christian and your are a voter, start acting like you know and care about the teachings of Christ and force the hand of these Republican politicians. Either that or simply quit supporting them, otherwise we are nothing but a hypocrite, we are not a follower of the teaching of Christ!

Pastors in India Beaten, Forced to Sign Apology Letter Because the Gospel Offends Hindus

Pastors in India Beaten, Forced to Sign Apology Letter Because the Gospel Offends Hindus

(PHOTO: REUTERS/DANISH SIDDIQUI)A protester holds a placard during a rally by hundreds of Christians against recent attacks on churches nationwide, in Mumbai, February 9, 2015. Five churches in the Indian capital New Delhi have reported incidents of arson, vandalism and burglary. The latest was reported last week when an individual stole ceremonial items.

Two pastors who were attacked and beaten by Hindu extremists right before the beginning of a three-day Gospel meeting in India’s Chhattisgarh state were forced to apologize because their conference and the words of Jesus caused snowflake radicals to be offended.

A local pastor told Morning Star News, a nonprofit news agency that reports on Christian persecution, that pastors Vijay Jogi and Santosh Rao were coerced by police into signing an apology letter to a mob of Hindus who prevented them from holding their Gospel meeting that was to be attended by over 1,000 people at Railway Grounds in Charoda.

On Nov. 16, a group of about 70 Hindu nationalists attacked the pastors just minutes before the event was about to start.

“Pastor Vijay Jogi and Pastor Santosh Rao were receiving the people at the entrance,” Pastor Amos James told the outlet. “Suddenly a mob of 70 Hindu Dharm Sena and Bajrang Dal activists gheraoed (encircled) the entrance, and Pastor Jogi and Pastor Rao were beaten and summoned to the police station.”

Jogi told Morning Star News that the extremists slapped Rao three times and then proceeded to beat them both.

Jogi explained that before the start of the meeting, he had received a call from local police warning them to call the meeting off. It wasn’t until after the attack that they realized that “these people will not let us conduct prayers.”

According to Jogi, the Hindu extremists became upset when they saw the words of Luke 7:22-23 in pamphlets around the area advertising the event.

That verse states: “And [Jesus] answered them, ‘Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have good news preached to them. And blessed is the one who is not offended by Me.'”

“The Hindu activists began arguing with us, ‘You are promoting blind beliefs. How can lame walk? How can deaf hear? How can you raise the dead? When your God can do all this, why are you people going to the doctors then?'” Jogi recalled.

“They told me it is very wrong that I have written these lines,” the pastor continued. “I said, ‘I did not write these words. It’s a verse taken from the Holy Bible and applies to the entire humankind.”‘

The activists declared, “We are offended by these lines,” Jogi said.

“If because I quoted these lines in the pamphlet, it is offending you at personal level, I apologize to you brothers. We are very sorry,” Jogi recalled telling the Hindu radicals.

Although Christian leaders in the area have had no issues holding events in that location in the past 20 years, the Hindu mob reportedly claimed that the pastors needed to have approval for the event from the sub-judicial magistrate in addition to approval from the railway police.

The extremists then took the pastors down to the police station, where the pastors were also questioned by the police about needing the approval of a sub-judicial magistrate.

“The police told me to settle the matter here and stop the event immediately,” Jogi claimed. “I was cautioned while Pastor Rao and I were in the police station that the activists are tearing and burning the banners, breaking the tube lights, chairs and dismantling the stage. The police officer told us even if he lodged a case [against the extremists], it would go strongly against us, and that even he can’t help it. The police did not register an FIR.”

Pastor Rao told Morning Star News that Hindu radicals badgered them while they were at the police station and asked questions like “Why are you calling Hindus to your events?” and “Why are you conducting open gospel meetings publicly?” The extremists demanded that the Christian leaders only work among Christians.

Rao explained that once the police were on the Hindu mob’s side, there was “very little hope for Christians in a situation like this.”

While Jogi and Rao were in the police station, they were “forced to sign a letter handwritten by the activists under the supervision of BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) worker Rajguru Ghosale.”

“The letter said by conducting this meeting we hurt the feelings of Hindus, we sincerely apologize for it and canceling the event,” Rao recalled. “They slapped me to sign it.”

The pastors told Morning Star News that they will not file charges against the Hindus or the police.

“We will conduct the gospel meetings again in May. We are not giving up this time. With permissions from all the authorities and government officials, we will conduct the meetings,” Jogi was quoted as saying. “The activists are following me wherever I go. I know there is threat to my life. But I have dedicated my life fully to my Lord’s work, and I will be at it till my last breath.”

The news surrounding the Gospel meeting in Charoda comes as India ranks as the 15th-worst nation in the world when it comes to Christian persecution, according to Open Doors USA’s 2017 World Watch List.

Most recently, it was reported that seven pastors in Northern India were arrested and could face up to three years in prison after they were accused of forcible conversion. The arrests occurred after the pastors were called to a home in Uttar Pradesh to pray for a recent Christian convert and her husband. However, family members were upset by the couple’s conversion and complained about a forced conversion to police, which eventually led to the seven pastors’ arrests.

Through the past year, a number of Christians have been arrested in Madhya Pradesh state while transporting children to Christian schools after Hindu extremists accused the Christians of forcibly converting Hindu children.

Morning Star News also reported on six Christians in India’s Jharkhand state who were jailed for over a month for praying for a sick Hindu woman.

“India continues its trajectory towards despair,” Wilson Chowdhry, the chairman of the London-based charity British Asian Christian Association, said in a recent statement. “The caste system is gaining renewed impetus, destroying the lives of disenfranchised citizens simply for the families they were born into. Worse, still every minority living in the midst of the Hindu majority are living through a time of increased suspicion and animosity.”

(Religious Poem) We Are All Slaves Or Servants

WE ARE ALL SLAVES OR SERVANTS 

 

Slavery we all know is a state of unwanted human bondage

We think we are free because we do not see the bonds or chains

Unlike Libya we do not hear our name called at the auction stocks

Yet, we were all purchased from the womb, a true blood sacrifice

There is a debt that we can never repay already paid for our Soul

 

A gift of all gifts was freely given to break the bonds of Demons

Such a great price paid voluntarily, we were purchased with love

The chains in this life that we put on, we do this unto ourselves

We are all now children of God, yet many still refuse the Grace

The path is wide with many shadows and lies that bring only death

 

The Soul is a gift from God to all and when we lay down it returns

We are all servants to something to someone, one is good, one not

Servants to the Light or slaves to the dark we who choose the side

Faithful servants need no chains nor whips to produce good wheat

Yet the lazy, the ignorant, and the greedy all will fall into Hell’s Pit

The ‘Gravity’ Of Religion

THE ‘GRAVITY’ OF RELIGION

 

A couple of hours ago I was contemplating writing an article for this site, yet I was stuck in that I wasn’t settling on a subject matter. I don’t remember where or how the word ‘gravity’ got stuck in my thoughts yet it did. I decided to look up the meaning in the dictionary so I used the website of ‘Dictionary.com’ to see what it had to say. I was also intending to look up the word gravity in the index of my King James Bible to see what it may say about the word gravity, the answer to that question is that my KJV doesn’t say anything about it. I did find out through Dictionary.com that the word gravity has a Latin root from the year span of 1500-1510 A.D.. Even the Gutenberg Bible that was written in the area of 1450 says nothing about gravity, and now I know why, it (the word gravity) hadn’t been invented. The KJV was published in 1611 A.D., basically 100 years after it ‘became a word’ yet it doesn’t mention the word. So, that reality cut off a big portion of what I was planning to write. I am not going to just make things up and say things that I know are not true to you so, I will simply say true things for you to consider please.

 

In the Dictionary.com definition it gave 7 examples of the meaning. I am going to give you 4 of them as the other 3 didn’t appear to me to be even a little bit relevant with our discussion. First of all it says that gravity, is a noun. 1) The force of attraction by which terrestrial bodies tend to fall toward the center of the Earth. 2) Heaviness of weight 3) Gravitation in general 4) Serious or dignified behavior; dignity: Solemnity.

 

Some of you may be thinking, well, what has gravity and religion got to do with each other, and that is a fair question so I will now explain why I have put them together. Those of you whom are regular readers of my articles know that my religion is the Christian Faith. I did not say Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran excreta. There is only one Christian Faith, it is humans whom have made the splinters, yet this would be a totally different subject for a different article. In this article I am going to be pointing toward the Christian Faith yet folks who believe in other Religions can easily picture in their own minds the parameters of the Religion that you do believe in. Like a lot of my articles this article is simply designed to get us all to think, to dig inside ourselves, to know ourselves better.

 

The force of attraction, one body gravitating toward another body. Yet I am not speaking of two humans, I am speaking of you, or me, as a human growing closer to a Deity, a God, that we believe in. Can a person really have love for or faith in that which we do not have believe in, or love for? If we humans are to gravitate toward God then we must honestly and urgently seek Him. If we are not pulled together then we will not meet together. If we do not seek God, then we will not find Him. If we do not have faith in Him, if we do not believe Him then we do not love Him. Without faith it is impossible to please God, our own Creator.

 

The heaviness of the weight of believing in God: For many, in fact, most people who call ourselves Christians know little about what the Scriptures actually say so we are easily deceived even by some sermons within the Churches. For so many people they believe that there is a ‘God’ even though they know almost nothing of Him. Many people, and I am speaking about people who call themselves Christians, feel a weight on their shoulders and their conscience because they still want to do all the ‘Earthly’ things like wild partying, getting drunk regularly and do a little whoring around or even a little bit of stealing once in a while. Many folks who do all of these things will still tell you, if none of their drinking buddies are around, that yes they are a Christian. Many of these same folks who are staying up all night Saturday night will still be sitting in a Church Pew on Sunday morning. The Lord tells us that if we love Him, then we will obey Him. As a person’s faith grows in God, the things of the world mean less and less to us. Folks, the Church, is the ‘Bride of Christ’, it is ‘the Church’ that the Lord will be coming back to get, His Bride. Folks either we gravitate toward God, or we are running away from Him. It is not possible to have the world and God at the same time.

 

Serious or dignified behavior; dignity: solemnity/oneness. My question for all of us now is, do we have a serious dignified behavior, a oneness with God? Do we believe in God? If we do, do the people around us know that we do? Do they see the love of God within us? Would our neighbors or coworkers be shocked if they happen to see us walking into a Church building one Saturday of Sunday morning? If we truly believe that there is a God, do we act like it? We don’t have to yell from street corners to tell everyone that we are a Christian, the quietness of our actions prove whether we really believe or not. If I were able to give a million dollars to the Red Cross or to a hurricane relief fund but then turn around and blab it to the world about what I had done, then I am seeking the attention of the world, not of God. Gravitating toward God is a matter of our own dignity.  If we are not serious about our love for God, are we so unwise that we think God doesn’t know why we do, or don’t do things? Do we honestly think that God is blind, or ignorant? “If you love me you will do like I ask of you”. Just as if our love is for our spouse, do we act like it each day? Does our spouse know without a doubt that we love them? Do you have doubts that your spouse loves you? The Gravity of our Faith in God is a very serious matter folks, our own Soul lay in the balance. God seeks a oneness with us yet we must seek this same oneness with Him, but, do we?

 

 

(Religious Poem) The Spirit Of God-Do We Know Him

THE SPIRIT OF GOD-DO WE KNOW HIM

 

The Apostles tell us of the Father and of the Son

Yet, who is this Comforter of whom they speak

Who can quiet the troubles of the flesh and heart

Our Task Masters beat us and the government thieves

Grafted in as partakers of the promises of Creation

Who can lift the burdens of the heart and the Soul

 

Can our hands still touch the garments of the Lord

Are the Words of God the Sinew of the Soul of a man

When flesh lay corrupted in the dirt are we but sleeping

Do our loved ones understand the Comfort of Your Hand

The Pharisees believed in rebirth yet they were still blind

Is the Kingdom of God-given only to those who possess faith

 

Only through faith can a man truly walk with their Creator

Comfort and strength springs forth only from the Lion of Juda

Can a man find peace with scales baked upon their heart and Soul

No one can do the work of the Lord if we refuse His Comforter

Without faith it is impossible to understand the peace of the Lord

With faith the Spirit of God will indwell the Tabernacle, called man

 

 

Both The Democratic And Republican Parties Are Anti-Christ Parties!

THE DEMOCRATIC AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTIES ARE ‘ANTI-CHRIST’ PARTIES!

(I FIRST PUBLISHED THIS ARTICLE ON SEPTEMBER 4TH OF 2016, TWO MONTHS BEFORE THE U.S. ELECTIONS.)

(THE CURRENT EVENTS HERE IN NOVEMBER OF 2017 IN ALABAMA WHERE A POLITICAL CANDIDATE ‘ROY MOORE’ WHO HAS A 40+ YEAR HISTORY OF SEXUALLY ABUSING VERY YOUNG GIRLS IS BEING ALLOWED TO CAMPAIGN FROM THE PULPIT OF A BAPTIST CHURCH. FOLKS, THIS IS VERY DETRIMENTAL TO,  THE OPPOSITE OF THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS CHRIST. CHRISTIAN CHURCHES AND EVEN PEOPLE WHO CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS WHO ARE BACKING SUCH A PIECE OF ‘LUKE WARM WATER’ ARE WALKING UP TO THE CROSS AND SLAPPING CHRIST IN THE FACE BY THEIR ACTIONS!) (trs) 

When I was a young child back in the 1950’s-60’s I was raised in a family who believed in the Democratic Party. My parents were folks who believed in the reality that working people if they wanted to be able to financially survive needed Union protections. They also believed that the Republican Party was solely for the wealthiest people and was clearly anti-working people. They also believed that the Democratic Party, because they cared about the poor was the party that the Churches backed. I never remember going to a Church that had a Republican Minister simply because the Republicans agendas were in direct contrast to the love, kindness and sharing teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

In 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court with their ruling on ‘Roe v Wade’ abortion ruling seemed to change the political map within the Churches. The teachings of abortion within the Scriptures are definitely anti-abortion yet almost all of the Churches and their Ministers remained as Democrats because they could not transcend over to a Party (Republicans) who were against basically all of the teachings of Jesus about how we should all treat each other. Yet, my question is how can a Church, a Minister, or their congregation openly or even behind closed door’s back abortion? How can you say you or a Minister (that word means, Servant) say you are a Christian (follower of Christ) and at the same time back abortion?

 

What I do not understand is why the people who say they are Christians have not created a third National Party! The Democratic Party strongly backs a woman’s “right” to have an abortion at any time during a pregnancy. The Republican Party wants to end all abortions seeing them as the murdering of over a million children here in the U.S. each year. So, Republicans have garnered the “conservative Christians” into their camp because of the abortion issue. This is even though the Republican Party Platform is still strongly anti-working people, and anti the people having the right to work under Union protections.

 

I am a registered voting Independent because I see both Parties as crooked and pure evil. When the people go to the polls this November we just like every other election know that either a Republican or a Democrat is going to win at every level of Government. To vote for anyone else is nothing more than a protest vote that has no effect on who actually wins the elections, it will be a Democrat or a Republican. So, just like this November we Voters are having to consider which one of the two Evils win. Especially concerning the Presidency this year, which Evil is less Evil, that is what we have to look forward to. For either of these political parties to claim to be close or closer to God is total BS. Evil is still Evil, neither of these Political Parties has the endorsement of the Scriptures of God, so how can anyone who calls themselves a Christian or Jewish endorse or support either of these Demonic structures? I used the title of them being anti-Christ, I am not saying that either Parties leadership is ‘the anti-Christ’. What I am saying is that both Parties policies are in direct indifference to the teachings of God’s Holy Scriptures, thus both Parties are Anti-Christ!

First Blog Post: Site Idenity

Trying to be a wild flower in a concrete jungle of this world and the American Dream that sets in concrete the standard at which success is measured. Which determines your value as a person how much money you have, your car, house, followers, Facebook likes etc. What if I told you I wanted to throw it all away, blow up everything I have accomplished so far. Blow up every idea of success pushed down my throat since kindergarten. Burn every picture on every social media platform I look to, to tell me what happiness looks like. Leaving me to figure out who I am, when really I just want to know why can’t I be them. Suffocating in comparison, poisoned by envy, and walking dead by jealousy. What if I told you at 22 I had accomplished everything society asked of me. I have a career in a job I love, my own apartment, moved away from home live by the beach, located in the #1 most visited city in the world. Feeling empty inside and question is this really it. Only to found out it means nothing and in the end, if I die with only these things I acquired for myself my life was wasted. What did I really do, did I leave the world any better than when I was born into it. Trying to feel grateful and content only to be met with a stirring that if a butterfly is a small insect so beautiful with so many colors and can fly. Wouldn’t God have a more creative plan for my life much bigger plans than to work and die. At 23 I have found the love of my life Jesus Christ it was a long road to get to this point. I didn’t think this is where I would be writing a post about Jesus, but grace chases you down and shakes you to the core. Every question I have had about who am I, why am I here, what is the point to all this…I have the answers by finding my identity in Jesus Christ. Whatever your hell is that you are living in whether it’s feeling worthless, depression, addiction, sickness, trauma, relationships, or whatever it may be God is the only one that can give you the purest love, peace, strength, joy, guidance and this is his promise to us.

I googled what happens to plants after a fire article said “trees and decaying plant matter, when a fire turns them to ashes, nutrients return to soil instead of remaining captive in old vegetation. And when fire rages through dry underbrush, it clears thick growth so sunlight can reach the forest floor and encourage growth of native species. Fire frees these plants from the competition delivered from invasive weeds and eliminates diseases or droves of insects that may have been causing damage to old growth. Wild flowers begin to bloom abundantly.”

Article: https://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/green-science/how-forest-fire-benefit-living-things-2.htm

Let’s Break it Down:
You don’t have to walk through the fire for when God puts out the flames the ashes of your past are going to be the nutrients for your future. These are the nutrients that are going to help others grow and inspire them. Whatever skepticism or doubts you have God says come as you are faith the size of a mustard seed seek God and watch him work in your life.
Matthew 17:20
And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

Your old self is burned away you no longer have to live with anxiety, depression, addiction etc. you are set free from captivity or whatever chains were placed on you by the world. You are the beginning of a new creation the ashes is your testimony which is your nutrients to remind yourself of how great God is, his faithfulness and worthy of praise.
John 15:5
I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

Fire clears thick growth- any and all burdens you carry God wants to take from you. All your pain and scares you don’t have to hold on to anything the world has done to you or made think about yourself. You are set free.
Matthew 11:28-30
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Thick growth clears so sunlight can reach the forest floor and encourage growth. Let the revelation of Jesus, who he is and his love for you be the light that evaporates the tears you cry.
James 1:17
17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
Psalm 27:1
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?
1 Peter 2:9
9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

Encourage Growth- stop trying to hide in shame invite him in, God wants to know your problems and have a personal relationship with you. In order for him to get inside your heart, you have to let go of some of the hurt so you can move forward and see all God has planned for you. God wants you exactly the way you are God can not love you anymore or any less than he does right now in this moment. Gods love is not earned or held at a standard there is nothing you can do to earn it. It’s giving freely and abundantly he does not love like the world because he is not of this world.
Psalms 86:15
“But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.”

Fire frees these plants from the competition delivered from invasive weeds and eliminates diseases or droves of insects that may have been causing damage to old growth. Christ gives the authority to bring us out of a life of comparison, competition, rat race of the world and deliver us from the belief of self serving success of achieving the American Dream is the only thing worth living for.
Romans 12:2
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Eliminates Diseases- whether it be sickness, metal, or physical pain.
Isaiah 53:5
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Psalm 103:2-4
2 Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
Isaiah 40:28-31
28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Wild flowers bloom abundantly- that God wants us to be free to be transformed, unafraid, worry less, burden less, to rejoice in him and bloom abundantly. The only message is love and by him be set free blooming all around the world showing the beauty of God for everyone to see spreading the gospel and saving souls.

Listen here Wildflower:
I wrote this Song to encourage others to stop letting the world devastate you and living in hell that you’re not supposed to be in. That there is a Savior that calls you beloved and desires to have a personal relationship with you. To let go and call on God even though most of the time we deny him not willing to take what he offers. The purest love and guidance instead choosing sin and self-sabotage. When God is not only going to give you just what you need but obliterate any box you put him in. Giving you identity, purpose, guidance, and able to overcome anything. Stop fueling fire around you and let God put out the flames, start new, light fire inside you to live for him and have eternal life.

Song: Wildflower

Dizzy from the circles I was lost
Checked my pulse
I was alive but wondered why
The weight of the world had me feeling 6ft under
Who am I
Then your words shook my corpse alive
God you held me tight
With the whispers to get me through the night
You spoke awakening into my life

Maybe you should put down your own match first
I will always be there to save you from the fire
But maybe you should put down the lighter
I will always be here with my arms open wide
ready to protect you from the engulfing of your life
But I am asking you

To put down the gasoline
stop fueling the fire with sin
Put down the gasoline
Take my hand
Throw down your shame
Throwdown regrets
Can’t you see
You don’t have to live in a forest fire
Look to the clouds I can take you higher
I can take you higher

You cant see me through the smoke
child it pains me to watch you choke
Call on me to spring up a well
Overflow, Fill the hole inside your soul
Put out the flames and birth growth
Out of ashes beauty rose
Field of wild flowers
Listen here wild flower

Put down the gasoline
stop fueling the fire with sin
Put down the gasoline
take my hand
Throw down your shame
Throwdown regrets
Can’t you see
You don’t have to live in a forest fire
Look to the clouds I can take you higher
I can take you higher

You are a vessel, Water flows
Holy Spirit, fill the hole inside your soul
Put out the flames and Birth growth
Out of ashes beauty rose
Field of wild flowers
Listen here wild flower

Put down the gasoline
stop fueling the fire with sin
Put down the gasoline
take my hand
Throw down your shame
Throwdown regrets
Can’t you see
You don’t have to live in a forest fire
Look to the clouds I can take you higher
I can take you higher

By my stripes you are healed, done deal
Promises, fill the whole inside your soul
Put out the flames and birth growth
Out of ashes beauty rose
Field of wildflowers
Beloved wildflower

Matches and gas in my hand
I don’t know what to do
I can barely stand
No more air in my lungs
I can’t breath
Fall on my knees
God, please rescue me
I am giving you all of me

(All to Jesus I surrender, All to him I freely give
I will ever love and trust him, in his presence daily live
I surrender all, I surrender all, all to thee my blessed Savior, I surrender all.)

What if I told you I am giving it all up, to surrender to Jesus. I am going to a YWAM school with hopes to become a full-time missionary. This is just the beginning of my walk with Christ and this blog is to talk about my journey, things God is placing on my heart, the highs and lows, missions, everything and all things Jesus. I give my life to Jesus to spread the gospel because his love for me is relentless and he is worthy of all my praise.

The Common Threads Between Science And Divine Creation Explained, Some

(I GOT THE IDEA FOR THIS POST FROM A COMMENT I MADE TO A FELLOW WRITER ‘LOGAN’ AT ‘CURIOUS HUMANS’)

 

I am a person that believes that we are all children of the Devine power of God. Yet I know very well from a little over 50 years of studying Scripture that all of the Christian Churches (that I know of), as well as our Jewish friends, have many things wrong right from the beginning of the first Book of the Bible. I totally believe that the Scriptures and Science actually agree on many, many things, in fact, they agree on the vast majority of issues. There is no reason for people who believe that God created all things to be so uptight about things like the big bang theory. I also believe that human beings have evolved greatly from the first Gentiles who have probably been here on this planet for at least a million years. Did we evolve from at least as far back as the Neanderthals, yes, without a doubt? Did we evolve from monkeys or gorillas, no! Did our ancestors crawl up out of the Oceans, no! Is there really such a thing as ‘the missing link’, no! Science has never been able to find the so-called ‘missing link’ because it as never existed, there is a gap between monkeys and mankind, we were never one and the same. If people who believe in a Devine Creator would quit blindly following ‘Church Doctrine’ their eyes might be opened to the truth of what Scripture are really telling all of us.

 

I have written articles here on this blog before about these issues of creation by God and creation by accident. To me, it is ridiculous for Christians to insist that the Earth is about 5,500 to 5,600 years old. To believe that one must not believe the Apostle Peter, the Prophets, or God Himself when we are told that the human day is not God’s day. We are told that a human lifetime, the example of 80 of our years are literally equivalent a blink of an eye compared in God’s time. So, why do we Christians and Jewish believers insist on degrading God down to our level? My Jewish friends please correct me on this next sentence if you believe that I am wrong on what I am about to say.  To me, what I have garnered about the Jewish calendar is that it begins with the time they believe that Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden Of Eden. (You can find this information in the following Los Angles Times Article:

Jewish Calendar Starts With Adam Symbolism

September 23, 1989 |ALLEN S. MALLER | Special to Religious News Service)
I believe that this year would be about year #5578 on the Jewish calendar, I believe that the Jewish New Year begins right after the 10 day Holiday of Yom Kipper. Many Christians consider the birth of Jesus (Yahushua) to be the beginning of the ‘Christian Calendar’ yet if we really dig into History we will find that the lifespan of Jesus was from 4 B.C. to 29 A.D. The Arabic Calendar begins in the Christian Calendar when Mohammad fled from Medina to Mecca in about year 630 A.D. I do ask my readers who are of the Islamic Faith to drop me a comment if this date is a little bit off and let me know the true date please.
I do say that it seems a bit odd to me though that so many people believe what is being taught from the Pulpits without questioning what they are being taught. Why do people have a Bible in their home or bother taking one to Church if they are never going to study the Scriptures on their own? Even in the times of Jesus and His Apostles when He/they would go into the Synagogue’s to teach, the people there would search the Scriptures daily to see if what they were being taught was correct or not. Why is it that Christians today do not open their Bibles to see if what they are being taught is correct, or not?
Now, I would like to get back to the time of Adam and Eve for a moment. Many people who are looking into the window’s of Christianity dismiss Christianity as idiotic because of the belief that the world began 5-6,000 years ago, and honestly, I can’t blame them. Please, get your hands on a Bible and actually look at the first two chapters of the first Book of the Old Testament, the Book of Genesis. Now please read where it is speaking of the six days of Creation. On the sixth day, God created Men and women and told them to go out into the world and multiply. Then Scripture speaks of how on the seventh day God rested. Then, in the next chapter we are told the story of the creation of Adam, then Eve. This is after the sixth and the seventh day, not during the sixth day at all.
Now, if you think I am crazy, or not, please keep reading. After Adam and Eve were cast out of God’s Garden you will see the story of Adam and Eve’s first two children, the story of Cain and Able. After Cain killed Able God cast him out of this area just outside the Garden area. Now, please think about a few things that we are being told here. When God told Cain that he was being cast out he said that “all those who find me will kill me.” Excuse me, all WHO? Aren’t there only three people on the whole Earth at this time? Aren’t Adam, Eve, and Cain the only people? So all of Who? What did God say and do to Cain at that moment? God put a mark upon the forehead of Cain and said He put it there so that “all of those who find you will not kill you.” Again folks, all of WHO? Then we are told that Cain traveled to the East into the land of Nod and there he took a wife! Wait a moment, where the heck did she come from?
There are many issues that Christianity and the other Faiths in the world have wrong and that is because the base of what they are teaching is corrupted. If your teachings are built on a sandbar there is no way it can stand in the storm of reality. Folks the truth is so plain, it is given to us, but we refuse to see it. God created humankind many thousands, hundreds of thousands or possibly even a million years or so before God created Adam and Eve. Yet, not until God created Adam did He “breathe into him the breath of life and he became a living Soul.” This is not said during the creation of mankind in day six. God created us Gentiles first but He did not create this Royal Bloodline until He created Adam and Eve. Folks, even Jesus Himself referred to us Gentiles as “dogs” because until after His Resurrection was complete we were not counted into the salvation that up until that time was reserved only for the Hebrew Bloodline. I could go on much further in this conversation as there are great errors in the Church’s teachings that are running millions of people far away from Christianity causing their Souls to be given over to Satan for damnation. Folks, we will all answer for our laziness of not caring enough to learn what the Truth is so that we could actually save a lot of these people who are going to be cast into Hell. If we are egotistical enough to believe that their blood will not be upon our own hands, we are not only lazy, we are delusional. This article just topped 1,300 words so I am going to close this conversation with you now if there is enough interest in the comment section I will continue my thoughts with you soon in another post. Thank you all for the kindness of your time, Shalom.
