(A Savage Thought) Would Jesus Do This (WJDT)

“Would Jesus Do This”

 

Hopefully you have noticed this isn’t the same statement that was popular a couple of decades ago, the WWJD or “What Would Jesus Do” slogan. A couple of weeks ago I was starting to so something (can’t remember what it was) and a thought entered my head, not WWJD but the words “would Jesus do this?” Honestly, think about it for a moment, WJDT is even a bit more personal for each of us than just What Would Jesus Do on just any and all events in plural but more directly at you and I, personally. When you, or I go to do something, anything, is this something that you know that if Jesus were here in the flesh right now that you could or could not see Jesus doing it? I am speaking from a “moral” standpoint. Not could he do it physically, would He lie, about anything? Would He cheat or steal? Friends, if not, then why do we do such things? When a person honestly commits to trying to live a “perfect” life (impossible for humans I know) it helps a person start to see reality more clearer, both the Spiritual and the Flesh.

(A Savage Comment) If You Are A Christian, You Are (A Face) Of Christ To Others

If You Are A Christian, You Are (A Face) Of Christ To Others

 

This is a question for yourself, from yourself to yourself, do you yourself refer to yourself as a Christian? Is it not a simple yes or no type of answer? If we honestly think or believe that we are a Christian do we believe that the everyday people in our lives would also consider us to be a “Christian Person?” What I am getting at is that if any other person is looking at you/me “as a Christian” then you/we are suppose to be showing them a “Christ Like” example. We Christians are suppose to walk in the “Essence” of our Creator, but do any of us honestly try to do this each and every day of our lives? The “Face” of Christianity? Each and every one of us who choose to carry the “Cross of Christ” is a Face, a Light for any who choose to be around us. Those of us who love Jesus Christ show this in the Face, the Light and the Love we show to the world around us. If we fail in our qualities of personal beings then we are failing both Jesus and we are failing the people around us. There is no question nor any doubt, none of us are perfect, but, are we at least trying to be? Please remember friends, without Faith, it is impossible to please Him and if we do not have faith our family and friends know it and, Jesus Himself knows it.

(A Savage Comment) Creationism AND Evolution: Both Of Them, Are True

Creationism AND Evolution:  Both Of Them, Are True

 

I am a devout life long Christian yet I have for most of my adult life debated how Christians (for the most part) are so oblivious to reality and to the Truths that are shown us in the Bible. So many people who believe in the Bible as the Holy Spirit Inspired Word Of God (as I also do) tend to read the Bible with ‘Church Doctrine’ blinders on. Back in the time of the Apostles and the time that Jesus walked the Earth when they taught in the Synagogues the people studied the Scriptures to see if what they were being taught was the truth or not. Just because your Preacher or a Church Elder, Bishop, or if you are Catholic, even the Pope, tells you something it is your Christian obligation to search out the Scriptures to see if what you are being told is Biblical truth.

 

Reality is that the ignorance of Christians/Churches have convinced millions if not billions of people throughout history to turn their backs on the Jewish and the Christian faith. Right from the very first book of the Bible (Genesis) Christians and Jews do not understand what we are so plainly being told. Yes the world and all in it were created in six days, but those six days are not, were not, human days, they were God’s days. I nor any other human knows what one of God’s days represent compared to a human day but Scripture tells us over and over again that God’s days are not our days yet humans keep trying to make that be so anyway. Even in our own solar system every single planet that circles the sun has a different amount of our hours in one of their days. Some will, through their ego’s say, well why didn’t Moses just lay it all our for us so we could know exactly everything? Folks, almost all of the humans that were alive about 3,600-3,700 human years ago calculated time through their own ancestors which normally only traversed back 3, 4, or 5 generations at best. Do you honestly think if Moses had started teaching them of thinks that happened 3 or 4 billion years ago that these people would have listened to him? What if Moses had started laying out the lineage of Dinosaurs, what do you think they would have done? My guess is that the people would have shunned him for being a crazy man.

 

Most all of us know some about the story of Adam and Eve from the first two chapters of Genesis but my question to everyone is, just how well have you read it? Have you just taken the word of the Church you attend as to what the Scripture actually is telling us all? Please reread the first two chapters. If you will notice in the first chapter Adam was created but before His creation God created ‘men and women, and, God created He them’. After God had created multiple ‘men and women’ God created Adam. Now in the first chapter, after God did all of His creating of those ‘Six Days’, God rested from His work on the 7th day. Then after all His work was done and He had created the first group of people (the Gentiles) and Adam, then in chapter #2 God then created Eve to be a help mate for Adam. Folks, the ‘promised one, the Messiah, Jesus The Christ’ lineage is traced back through the ‘Royal Blood Line’ to Adam, actually to Eve. There were two human creations, the gentiles, and the Royal Blood Line of Adam. Adam and Eve were about 5,500 human years ago yet humans were on this planet many thousands of years before this time. Jesus Himself referred to us Gentiles as “people before this time whom were not a people”. Jesus was pointing out that before His time here on Earth, before His Resurrection that salvation was only to the Jews and to no one else. So, people who were not a people, Gentiles! These are simple truths laid out in writing for us all to see yet we choose to remain blind. Think about a few things we are told here in the beginning of Genesis. After Cain had murdered his brother Able God banished Cain to the East of Eden in the land of Nod. God put a mark on the forehead of Cain so that “all who find him would not kill him”, folks, all of who? There were only 3 people left on the planet right, just Cain, his Mom Eve and his Dad Adam, so all of whom? Then after Cain had been banished he took a wife, wait a minute, where did she come from? Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible/Torah through the guidance of God’s Spirit, whom we tend to call the Holy Spirit from the New Testament. The Truth of the Scriptures are right before our eyes, but we have been trained not to see the real Truth. We have been taught Church doctrines instead which has run many millions of people away from God’s teachings.

 

If Moses had told the people of his time that the world was about 4-5 billion years old and that the planet we call Earth had started with a big interstellar bang what do you think the people would have done to him? At the very least they would have thought him to be crazy and no one would have paid him any mind. To my Christian and Jewish brothers, yes there were such things as dinosaurs and there has been life on this planet for several hundred millions of human years. I did not say that there has been human life here on Earth for hundreds of millions of our years, just life itself. God does not want us to be ignorant for ignorance begets death, physical and spiritual. Science has pretty much discovered/proven that human life has been on this planet for hundreds of thousands of years, not just the 5,000-5,500 years since Adam and Eve. I am not an archaeologist even though I am a huge fan of history. I know that science has been looking for the so-called ‘missing link’ between Primates and Humans for longer than I have been alive. This is like trying to find that pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, it doesn’t exist folks.

 

Evolution, is there such a thing? Of course there is folks. As an example I would like to use the people science calls Neanderthals. For most of my life time scientist have wondered what happened to them, why did they go extinct? Just like the people before them who bred with them the same thing happened to them, they were bred out of existence. You can breed cattle with buffalo and you get what is called beefalo. You can take oranges and breed them with tangerines and you get a product called tangelos. In Scripture the ‘House of Israel’ was forbidden to mix blood with any of the Gentiles, if they did then they were counted as not being pure. Humans did not crawl up out of the oceans and even though we have many of the same molecules of other creatures we did not derive from them and they did not derive from us. Today science can create a form of a human being through cloning and some would call this evolution, that we have evolved into a more pure condition but they are ignorant of reality. Science can play God, but they are not God. Just as if I could make an android and give it a human name like George, George is still not a human. The difference in these two creations of science and a real human being is that science can not create ‘a Soul’. It is the Soul that makes the conscientiousness that makes one human and only God can create the Soul. Is there such a thing as evolution, of course there is, just not to the extent that some scientist believe and or are trying to find or create.

 

Science has some things wrong, yet they do have many things correct. Churches have many things correct, yet they have many things wrong. It is the job of the Churches to teach the whole Truth but first the Churches must open their eyes to what the Scriptures actually say and to forget about ‘Church doctrines’. The Earth is a special place for it is designated to be “God’s Footstool”. Earth is where Jesus will reign from once the New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven to replace the current city of Jerusalem once it has been totally destroyed after the Second Advent. Now, Christians, wake up to reality about other planets. Do you honestly think that if God is the Creator of all things in the Heavens and on the Earth that He created billions of planets for no purpose or reason at all? To the best of my knowledge I have never seen an alien yet I totally believe that they exist, it would be difficult to honestly believe other wise. Then again there is the issue of, what does an alien actually look like? Personally I have no idea, but I do doubt that they look like humans. Personally I believe in the existence of Angels, I also believe that I have seen and spoken with at least two in my lifetime. I also believe in the existence of Satan and of His Angels, to me, to not believe in both is Biblical ignorance. I personally do not know if I have ever spoken directly with any Demons but I think that there is a very good chance that I have several times. I know that I have experienced being in places and in the presence of a few people where the feeling of pure evil was like a stench in the air, you could feel it, you could almost taste it. Remember, if you spend your life trying to be good and trying your best to be the best follower of Christ that you know how to be, you make yourself a target for the hate of evil ones, humans and otherwise.

Information About The Holy Spirit

Information About God’s Holy Spirit

 

As those of you who know me personally or through these commentaries I share with you here then you know that I grew up going to a local Church of Christ. It would be fair to say that I spent my growing up years there 10-17. But at 17 I made myself quit going. Through my own studies I came to realize that there had to be much more depth in many subject matters than the level that I had been taught.  Subject matters of Scriptures and Faith in which could not hold a blind eye to the fact of their differences. And to be totally honest, my hormones were pulling me toward another line of thought at this same time frame also.

 

One of their two Elders of the Congregation and I had several  Q & A about such things as The Holy Spirit, Spirits, Souls, Possessions, and Miracles. I decided on The Holy Spirit as the subject matter today partly due to these conversations I had with Him and with a few others I trust for Honesty as well as with Wisdom. The Church of Christ Doctrine does not believe in any type of Possession. When one hears the word Possessed, do not their minds go to the thought of ‘Demonic’? But, if it is possible to be possessed with an Evil Spirit, could you not also be possessed with a Spirit of Light? One of the last times that this Elder and I got to speak one of the last things he said to me was about not really understanding “this Holy Spirit thing”. I have thought about those words several times throughout the decades. Now I realize that there were a whole lot of Biblical meat issues that those local folks actually knew that they didn’t know. It is a sad thing that the Earthy Leadership of The Lord’s Bride (The Church) does not know what 1/3 of The God Head is? How was that possible? My experiences were many decades ago, hopefully things have grown in their faith and knowledge since my days.

 

(Matt: 28:19 and 2 Cor. 13:14)

After The Lords ascension back to Heaven from which He came, The Lord did as He said He would do. The Lord sent back to the Earth, to His Servants the Apostles, His Holy Spirit to empower them, the Holy Spirit, to Comfort them.

Folks, these are just a few of the many Passages concerning who and what the Holy Spirit is. The Body is the Tabernacle (dwelling place) of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit of Christ, to be possessed by Him, this is something that I wish for every human being upon the planet. Fore friends, this would be pure safety from the evil around us and the evil we are yet to see. Fore where the Light of God is, darkness cannot enter! Folks, the Devil and His kind may throw rocks at our homes (Tabernacles) all day long. But, like with any thief or bad person, their ability to harm us, our family, our friends increases greatly, if we allow them on the inside of our homes, body/Soul. True destruction often seems to come from when the inside walls grow weak, then the crumble, then the sound of our own destruction?

 

I hope that this letter was of some value to you. Please feel free to drop me a note, question, opinions or ideas if you wish too.

(Philosophy) Of Grace

GRACE

 

When one is full of grace or grace is given from one to another, what do you think of? In index in my Bible says this about grace—unmerited favor. I don’t think I have ever used those exact words for the depiction before but if you really think about grace from God The Creator toward the creatures He created in Their own image; undeserved kindness, yes, unmerited, unearned kindness. It is the Truth that we humans are saved by Grace. Absolutely this is true, for if we humans were not saved by the Grace of God, then most assuredly everyone of us would perish. There would be no hope for anyone of salvation. For no human of their own accord could live a perfectly perfect life for indeed a man’s righteous is but filthy rags to The Lord. (Is 64:6)

 

I hope that you don’t mind but I would like to put down on paper a few of the beautiful yet direct passages in their meaning. All Scriptures are given for our own understanding and knowledge sake. (Eph 2: 4-10)

4.) But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us.

5.) Even when we were dead in sins He made us alive together with Christ (by grace we are saved)

6.) And has reached us up together and made us sit together, in Heavenly places in Jesus Christ.

7.) That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Jesus Christ.

8.) For by Grace we are saved Through Faith and not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.

9.) Not of works, lest any man should boast.

10). For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God had ordained that we should walk in them. Remember, without faith it is impossible to please God.

Romans 6: 14 For sin shall not have rule over you for you are not under the Law (Old Covenant/Old Testament)

John 1: 14 And The Word (Jesus) was made flesh and dwelt among us (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father) full of grace and truth.

John 1: 17 For the Law was given by Moses, but grace and truth cam by Jesus Christ.

Romans 5: 1-2 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. By whom we also have access by faith into grace where in we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

 1 Peter 3: 7 Likewise, you husbands, dwell with them (wives) according to knowledge, giving honor to your wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and being Heirs together in the Grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

 

I hope that I haven’t bored you with the way I laid out this letter to you. Personally I thought these were some  beautiful passages concerning and defining God’s Grace to us. But we all also have an obligation back to God. Some Christian religions teach that once saved always saved. Also that through God’s Grace we are saved so there is nothing that we really have to do in our own personal lives, these ideas are usually taught in unison with each other. But you see, there is a small problem, this is not what the Scriptures teach. Some will tell you that they were baptized (sprinkled) when they were 8 days old so now they can live what ever life style they want to. 2 Peter 3: 16b “they that are unlearned and unreliable twist, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction.”

 

We are all saved by the Grace of Jesus Christ for without Jesus there is no salvation for anyone! But there actually are some other considerations. There are a few simple requirements of each of us like faith in Jesus, loving Jesus and doing the things in our life that Jesus asks of us. If we truly do love Him the we will walk our life in the love and strength of our Master. If we walk our life in darkness then we show the whole world and The Lord, that it is not God we serve, but Satan. As Jesus said to us all so plainly “if you love Me, then you will do the things of which I ask.”

(Philosophy Peace) Life Is About, What We Put First

Life Is About What We Put First

 

I’m just writing this down as I am thinking of it. You see, I am a person that when I try to write, I write off of a title. I know that some folks say that they write the story then come up with a name for it. I have never seemed able to do that but then again, I have never said that I have any talent.

 

First I thought of this question, so I wrote it down. Then once I had seen it in writing, I then said what about myself, how would I ‘honestly’ answer this question? This is one of those question times where we are only talking to ourself. The question is, can we do that? Can we be totally honest to our own self?

 

I can only judge myself here, I’m not qualified to judge anyone else. You are going to have to do your own ‘examination’. I am not trying to grade you here, I am trying to better learn myself, to be cold blooded honest with my own self. Can you do that? What is ‘The’  answer, for me? Where do I ‘rate’ things, in my subconsciousness? Do I put myself first? My wife, all of my family? What about our Nation, our political facilitation, our political Party. How about our Nations Constitution? Maybe our job, or our position at work or maybe pride in our home, our car, or a toy train set? How about our religion, Jesus Christ, Yahweh or Allah? You see, there are many answers, far more than I have written here. I hope that mine are as correct as I think/hope that they are. Jesus Christ, Country, Family, Our Nations Constitution, the people of the whole World.

 

Another side thought while you are hear conversing with me. Have you ever spent any time thinking about where Satan and His Angels are going to end up? Have you ever thought about the “Hell” of the Bible? After the Rapture and Armageddon, they will all be cast there, forever. This is a horrible place to have anything or one sent to, Spirit or Flesh. Now think about it, is there anyone that you personally have ever met that you really do want to see them burning there? I am blessed and thankful that I cannot. I am thankful that I do not hate anyone that badly and I hope that I never ever do.

 

Well, I hope that this note to you was able to bring some more clarity of yourself, too you. Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you now have a safe and happy New Year ahead of you, and the ones that we put first.

Deception And Deceit

Deception And Deceit

 

Most all of us within our life span do walk many different streets, styles, manners, job’s and come in contact with many different kinds of people. If we walk our life with our eyes open and our ears open we will learn many things. Things about ourself, other people, other cultures, religions and even different types of businesses. I believe that none of us really wants to be deceived, not by our families, friends, neighbors or co-workers and definitely not by our place of worship. For us not to be lost within our own life we all need something within us to be our foundation or foundations, our center of trust. We need an inner haven that we can turn to in our times of trouble or sorrow.  We all need this whether it is a family member, spouse or our faith in our Creator. But, what do we do when we learn that our foundation, our security blanket, has been lying to us, deceiving us? This is hard enough on a person when we find out we were being told things that simply were not so by the very people that we trusted the most. When we were being fed incorrect information by accident or through lack of knowledge it is much easier to forgive the person or persons. But, it is so much more hurtful when we find out that we were or are now just plain being lied to.

Lies, deceit, greed, these are all instruments used by Satan to hurt us, to deceive us and to hollow us out inside. Yet when we are told lies by our parents and our society from our very early childhood how do you expect children to feel about ‘our word’ to them? Have you asked yourself yet just what in the world am I talking about?  Consider things like Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny. Do you say, oh, those are just harmless little lies, yet are they really harmless? When a child finds out that their parents have been lying to them (their whole lives) you have crushed that faith they had in you forever, they now know that their rock, their foundation, will lie to them over and over again. You have broken their bond of trust, do you honestly believe that they are just harmless little lies in their eyes? What about when a Minister or Pastor of a church dresses up as Santa Clause and parades around as such within the church?

 

There are two more major themes in regards to the science fiction of Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny I would like you to think about. Christmas is suppose to be completely about Jesus and His birth. But, the Devil and His worshipers have through time taken Jesus out of the Christmas equation. Jesus has been replaced with a jolly little fat man in a red suit with flying reindeer who can do many magical things. Then there is also the commercial side of this transfiguration, Christmas has become about how much money you can afford to spend. The truth is this mindset does help keep the economy going, simply put, Santa sells, Jesus does not.

 

There are only two main times of the year that the Christian world tries to promote the times of Christ to the rest of the world, Christmas and Easter. Yet the Devil wants no recognition of Jesus at all so the world blindly follows Pagan traditions. At Christmas time when people should we worshiping Jesus and celebrating His birth, instead the world promotes a Pagan replacement while lying to their children for years. These acts ruin the trust the children’s had in their parent and other adults around them. Then at Easter time when we should be celebrating the death and resurrection of the Messiah instead we put a fictitious Rabbit on a pedestal and we are hiding eggs for the children. Doing this we put the events of our Savior aside in our children’s minds, with lies.

 

By the time we are young adults we have spent our young lives seeing and hearing things that have been done to ourselves and to others that should have never ever happened. In school we are taught it is okay to cheat because it is only cheating if we get caught. In the business world we’re taught that lying and stealing isn’t really lying and stealing, again, unless we get caught. But if we have acquired enough money by the time we do get caught to afford a good lawyer you will probably get off anyway, you might even become President. Lying, cheating and stealing is everywhere in our society today.  Friends, we all have to do our very best to walk our daily life in the Light that is Jesus, to walk our life by His examples that He set for us all. This is so very important for our families sake, our neighbors sake, our communities sake and for our own sake. We are not just condemning our own selves, when we walk a crooked path that everyone notices, including our children. This is a job that each one of us must do to save ourself, our loved ones and society around us. If a person that we know were to be asked of us if we are a Christian, and we were not around, what would their answer be? What would our family, neighbors and co-workers actually say to that question? What do the people we care about and love actually say about us when we are not around? How many would say of us that yes, he/she is a good person, a good Christian? Or, do these same people say of us, don’t trust them, they lie and steal?

 

Do we ever think about what Jesus will say to us, about us, about the life that we have lived? What will Jesus say to each of us? Will it be as in Matthew 25: 34 when He said “Come ye blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world?” Or, will He say the saddest and most horrible words any human could ever hear? Matthew 25: 41 “Depart from Me ye cursed into everlasting fire, prepared for the Devil and His Angels?” Jesus has told us that “no liar shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” Please, let us all think about what we are doing in our daily life. I pray that no human that I have ever known would ever have to hear Jesus say these words to him/her (Depart from Me, ye cursed into everlasting fire.) Remember, the Lord loves each one of us and does not want us to walk astray of His teachings. If we won’t do this for our own Soul, please consider the ones around us that we say we love. Do we really care about our children, our families? Do we care enough to quit lying to them, breaking their trust in us even if we consider them little lies like Santa and the Easter Bunny?

 

(Theology/Poem) Walking With God

Walking With God

 

Fashion our walk with the Lord along our life’s highway

Understand it is the Lord that gives us breath each day

Nothing can harm our Soul if we walk holding His hand

When we pass from this life we shall enter His promised land

Unfurl the Flag of God for His love to all of us He freely gives

 

The Lord gave sight to the blind and His word calmed the raging sea

Tell all how He prayed in the garden for strength at the hill called Calgary

Let the world know of His love for us as the Cross He suffered and overcame

Armageddon awaits for those still living, on what side will we choose to be

When the Trumpet of God sounds, the Lord and His Angels we shall all see

 

The great day of the Lord is coming, Angels of Heaven singing of His glory

Friends, forever we shall shout and sing, the glory of our Lord God and King

To see a smile on the face of our Lord, there is no greater a thing to see

Let our voice ring out in song praising the God of all, the Father and His Son

Unfurl the flag of God’s salvation to us for our sins He washed away on Calgary

(Philosophy: Theology) Do Demons Really Exist?

(Philosophy: Theology) Do Demons Really Exist?

 

Demons, this is a nasty subject matter that I am writing to you about this evening but it is not a very long letter so I hope that you will stay with me for the few moments it will take to read through it. What is the first thing that you think of when you hear this word? My first thought is, evil, my second though is, dangerous. Most faiths (religions) that I have ever studied do believe in their existence but there are some who do not. Yet more religions that are under the ‘Christian Flag’ seem to believe that there is no such thing as a Demonic possession or even that there are such things as Angels or Demons. Hopefully you are of the knowledge and understanding that they are very real. I thank the Lord that there is a Spiritual world for without it there would be no Protector (the Holy Spirit) as well as no Angels of God or even us. For without our Creator, none of us would have ever existed. Unfortunately there are tens of thousands of ‘fallen Angels’ who followed Satan in His rebellion against God who are now on this planet with us humans. For them, Earth is the in between spot. They were in Heaven, they are here now and they have already been judged and condemned and are in route to Hell’s fire after the completion of Armageddon, and they all know this. So the reality is, they hate our guts, the very thought of us puny little humans getting to live in Paradise while they are condemned to the flames of Hell. For us humans the great side of this is that as long as we accept, follow and worship Jesus Christ, He gives to us of His Spirit, the Holy Spirit and if we are possessed by God’s Spirit then Satan or His Angels cannot take away our prize which is being with God for all eternity.

 

There is a bad side to all this Spiritual world though, if we reject Christ then we humans leave ourselves open to evil to move into our person, or house, tabernacle. You see, all humans are like a house in a sense, this is where we all live, within our selves, but we have an unlocked door that a Spirit can open and come into. If we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior then He has given to us of His Holy Spirit and no other Spirit can ever enter in as long as He is there. You see if Christ resides with us a Demon nor the Devil Himself is able to come in. For at the very presence of God the Demons tremble and quake. I am going to give you 10 Bible verses that I hope you will check out concerning this subject matter, they are as follows.

1.) Luke 10: 17-18—Demons are evil

2.) Luke 8: 29—They are powerful

3.) Mark 5: 8-9—They are numerous

4.) Matthew 10: 1—They are unclean

5.) Matthew 12: 24-30—They are under Satan

6.) Mark 1: 23-24—They have the ability to recognize Jesus Christ

7.) Matthew 8: 28-29—They have the ability to possess humans

8.) Acts 19: 13-16—They have the ability to overcome men

9.) Matthew 8: 29-33—Demonic possession of humans

10.) 1 Timothy 4: 1-4—Demons have the ability to deceive humans and to distort God’s Doctrine. This is so that they can deceive the world, including Christians. You see, they know the Scriptures better than any human who reads with a human non-spiritual mindset. This is one of the reasons that we are directed to study the Scriptures daily so that we will be able to recognize false teachers when we hear/see them. This is the best way to keep ourselves and our families safe from the powers of evil. But, if we humans do not love and trust God with all our heart, mind and Soul we open ourselves to the worlds temptations. We must walk our lives in the love, peace, faith and the power of the Lord and His Spirit to truly be safe. How we choose to live our own personal life does effect many of those around us. If we are evil we tend to treat people very badly, even our own families, spouses, children, grandchildren and our parents. If we are a person who is owned and possessed by the Spirit of God, those around us will notice, and we do make a difference on peoples lives whichever path we choose to follow.

 

The Demons have already been judged, they know that their destiny is Hell. Now they are after each of us and everyone that we love. Our only shield, our only hope is putting on the Armor of Christ for this is the only shield that the Demons nor the Devil Himself cannot penetrate. Friends, there is a fire burning in every neighborhood, including our own, at what point in time will we ever pay attention to it? If you saw a fire burning on your street would you sound an alarm? Would we go ourselves and try to help save those whose house is burning or, would we just turn the T.V. up louder so that we wouldn’t have to hear the screams? What is it going to take to get the people as a human race to wake up and to care? What if the fire is in the house next door to us, or even our own home, our own family, are we really ever going to care? Or, do we only care if we see our own personal room on fire, or, when we feel the heat burning our own skin, when will we wake up and recognize reality? When evil is personally slapping us around and setting us on fire, is it too late? If we have spent our life time turning our back on the only one who can save us, who else can save us? The answer is simply no one else can and no one else will. If you believe that the Bible is the Holy Spirit inspired Word Of God you will realize that there is but one Savior and that is Jesus Christ.

 

God tells us all that the Devil is the father of all liars. So, think about our Leaders, are they liars? Who do you think is their God, who do you think rules them? It most certainly is not God! Friends, the greatest trick that the Devil has pulled on mankind is in convincing humans that He doesn’t exist. We are directed to use our God given talents to help others, this is not just concerning physical charity like giving food and clothing to the needy but we are suppose to help bring others to the Light that is God also. Folks, the Lord tells us that we as Christians (followers of Christ) must produce, Spiritually speaking. Now I have one last question for each of us, how close is the fire? Can we feel the heat, the evil around us? Do we have the Spiritual insight to see it, to understand it?

Philosophy: Caring And Charity

Philosophy: Caring And Charity

 

Caring, it can be such a deep, loving and kind thing. Just as a lack of caring can be a deeply hurt filled way to live. A caring person is usually a kind and loving Soul where a person who is uncaring about others seems to usually fall into one of two categories, very egotistical and or is a person who is down on the world, who doesn’t think anything of anyone, including their own selves. The Lord wishes all people to be good, kind and decent to one another. We are directed to treat all people of all tongues, races and beliefs as our brothers and our sisters. Remember, the golden rule does not  say “do unto others before they have a chance to do unto you.”

 

Charity is to give alms, it comes from within and is given freely. Just as caring is a natural concern for children, ones mate, other peoples lives, health and their needs. Caring and charity, people who are of these traits seem to be more positive, loving, kind and decent to each other. These people seem to have a love filled, light filled, quiet self assured ora about themselves. For if ones body is the dwelling place of God’s Holy Spirit then we should always be putting God first in our lives, would it not be reasonable that His Light will come out of us via our actions and words? I am not saying nor is it true that all people of the Earth are devout Christians just because they smile a lot and daily do good deeds. Nor is it really true that all people who say they are Christians really are. Many are just fooling themselves and their actions and words prove that God’s Light is not in them. There are some people of all religious faiths as well as some people who are of no faith system at all who are still good, honest and friendly people. A person, a community or a Nation can not have two masters. A person can pretend to care, they can even do some token charity work but our works do not make us good, it is the Spirit, the Light of God that makes us good, good works are a byproduct of that Light. Our works alone will not save us for without faith it is impossible to please God, no matter what good things we do. The people around us tend to know the truth about us, sometimes even better than we know ourselves. Also, most certainly God can see right through us and He will not be fooled or mocked by any of us.

 

Truly the harvest is ready, there are millions of people all over the globe who are looking for answers to a plefera of life’s challenges, truly the harvest is ready but the workers, the reapers are few. Throughout the New Testament we are told that we must produce. Any tree that produces no fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire, we are not allowed to hide our talents in the sand until our Master returns for if God is in us we will be filled with His love, caring and charity. As I said earlier, there are a lot of very good people in the world, people of every Nation, people who are not Christians who are daily looking for life’s meaning, we must work for Christ. There are many people who are kind, decent, charity filled, caring people that do not have the Light of God in them. These people will be counted among the lost if we the people that are around them do not show them God’s Light and God’s love. When this happens, at the Judgement Seat of Christ, Jesus will turn to the people who call themselves Christians who were these peoples family, friends, neighbors or members of the Churches in their towns for a reckoning. Might the Lord ask them/us why, why is this my child condemned? Why did you not warn them, why did you not care? Did you not know that their blood will be put upon your/our head?

 

In truth, when it comes to our faith are we sitting on our hands? Do we really care about our families, about anyone? The Lord knows all of our thoughts He already knows the answers to His questions about each and everyone of us. I have a few Scripture verses I would like you to consider before I close this letter to you this evening.

Matthew 10: 38-39—Jesus speaking. “He that takes not his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of me. He that finds his life shall lose it and he that loses his life for My sake shall find it.”

1 Corinthians 15; 58—The Apostle Paul speaking. “Therefore my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. For as much as you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

2 Corinthians 5: 10—The Apostle Paul speaking. “For we must all appear before the Judgement Seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”

Matthew 7: 21—Jesus speaking. “Not everyone that says to Me Lord, Lord shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but he that does the will of My Father which is in Heaven.”

1 Peter 4: 7-8— The Apostle Peter speaking. “But the end of all things is at hand; be ye therefore sober and watch unto prayer. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves; for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.”

In closing, just think about it being the middle of the night and you notice that your neighbors house is on fire and you know their family is there sleeping. Would you do anything or just keep on watching your TV program and let them burn, after all, its not your house, not your family, why get involved? Within the Spiritual world we all have the same situation, we know that we have family members, friends, neighbors and coworkers who will be lost to Hell’s fire if the world was to end today, or if they were to die today, yet do we sit on our hands and let them burn? Caring, think about it!
