Real Relationships (Part 4)
The job description of a pastor (according to my best understanding)
The actual job of a pastor is to know each one of his sheep individually and to know the condition of the flock corporately.
When is the last time your pastor visited you in your home, and got to know you personally, and got to know your whole family individually and corporately? If he has spent no time with you, how can he know the condition of your soul?
When is the last time he talked to you personally about your vision to serve God in the kingdom, and how you and your family are fulfilling the vision that God had given each one of you individually and corporately?
Has the Pastor been to your house in the last six months? last year? the last two years? the last five years? the last 10 years, or the last 30 years? Has he ever been to your house? Has he ever sat down to a meal with you in your own home? Breaking bread with you and sharing the Word of God, not for money, not for personal advancement, but for heavenly glory, and blessed true fellowship in Christ? Encouraging you to keep working out your heavenly calling with fear and trembling, making sure you election and faith are secure, being fruitful in your ministry to the lost and dying, ever mindful of the day of judgement, and salvation. Working with a passion, and a fervor, stirring you up to love and good works while it is day, because soon the night cometh, when no man can work.
Now, here we need to make a judgment call. If the Pastor has not visited you in your home, not spend time with you personally, how can he know you, and know your life vision in God, and help you steward that vision in grace, and truth, and in godly counsel, and in heavenly prayer support?
If the Pastor doesn’t know you personally: how can he be your pastor?
If you go to a local church, you will probably hear much about the pastor’s vision, the pastor’s calling, the pastor’s this and the pastor’s that, but how much time has the pastor spent getting to know your vision, and your calling, to come alongside you and help you fulfill the work of God ordained for you from the beginning of the world? If he has not done this how can this be your pastor?
If the truth be told, he cannot do this, because no one has done this with him–so he doesn’t know how, since he has been given a false model of church, and a false model what it means to be a pastor. What it means to know the condition of his flock. And what it means to care for his sheep. Or rather, His Sheep.
More than likely, your pastor was raised in a false religious system and he is just continuing to follow and serve the false thought system that he was raised in.
The Pastor of your church may think he is doing the best job in the world, by gathering more and more people into his congregation, to hear his messages, and to sedate them into non-biblical inaction. Giving out head knowledge about the word, and head stuff he learned at seminary, but not actually teaching and training his sheep, how to put the word into action and to become the living Word of God. He cannot teach this, because he has not learned this himself. He has learned a system of religion, that looks good on the outside to men, but on the inside is impotent and without power, Full of pride, selfish ambition, greed, and the pursuits of men.
Having a form of godliness,
but denying the power thereof.
Be honest with Me: How many local churches, local pastors, and church ministries uphold the model of church given in Acts 1; 2; 3; 4; and 5? Personally, I cannot name one.
How many pastors today have deacons that follow the model of Stephen, in Acts 6; 7; or the model of Philip, in Acts 8.
How many pastors today follow the model of preaching like that of Paul, or the model of Peter?
How many modern day pastors are creating a powerful, intimate, living Holy Spirit Family of God by the leading of God’s Spirit, Remember: no one considered what they had to be their own, but freely gave to any as had need.
Let’s not get too critical here, but you hopefully can see clearly there is a wide and thick margin of difference between the Modern Day “Church Ministry” and good old fashioned religion and practice taught and lead by the Apostles of Christ, in the Book of Acts, demonstrating the life of living Faith, sample by the Holy Spirit filled, and Holy Spirit directed body of Christ.
Unfortunately, the 501C3 Church cannot possibly ever fulfill this vision, because the Holy Spirit is not the leader of the church, man is. And that’s the problem.
When you think about it, the modern church ministry is set up for the benefit of the pastor and the ministry, and it is not set up for the benefit of those coming to be ministered to. That in itself should tell you who is in charge of the ministry.
Living in deep compromise before God.
I wonder, if we think signs and issues are trivial and don’t matter to God, maybe it is because we are inundated by a dirty penis society, and even a dirty penis church and religion, that does not uphold the Standards of God Word. And proves the saying true, a little leaven has leaven has leavened the whole lump of dough.
This creates two problems: Instead of being loyal worshippers of God, falling underneath the protection of God’s Law, God’s Spirit, and God’s Word, men and women become self appointed judges of God, and His Word, and His Law, not seeing the value in it due to their very own lusts that compel them to deny and resist the clear plans and purposes of God.
Those who want to have the cake and eat it too, will straddle the fence when it comes to purity, holiness, righteousness, and wholehearted devotion to God’s call to heavenly perfection.
You will hear people say. “Oh, you know brother, we are all sinners, and we all sin.” In so doing we immediately set the standard lower than the standard Jesus set for the Church, the true Body of Christ. Then after we lower the standard, then we will come up with a premeditated list of excuses. Then you will hear a laundry list of reasons, why it is impossible to please God, because we were born with a sin nature.
My concern here is this: Have I been born again, by the Spirit of God, or have I not? Have I received a new nature or not? Have I reckoned the “old man” dead to sin, and the “New Man” alive in Christ, or not?
How I answer these questions will dramatically impact what my walk with God, and what it will look like in one year, 5 years, 15 years, and 30 years later.
If I start a sea voyage across the Atlantic Ocean from Miami, Florida to Cape Town, South Africa, and my calculations are only a couple degrees off: At my journey’s end: How many miles will I be off course? Is it possible that I could miss the entire continent of Africa, and land in the Antarctic somewhere?
Can it be the same with the kingdom of God?
Can we miss the Kingdom of Heaven, like the five foolish virgins by a simply neglecting to have a lamp full of Oil? (A vessel full of the Holy Spirit? (Matthew 25)
Can we miss heaven, by being a poor steward of the finances He has given us, like the one who received one talent? (Matthew 25)
Can we miss heaven, by not serving the poor, the lost, the hungry, the thirsty, and those in prison, like the goats in Matthew 25?
Can we miss heaven, like the man in the Wedding Banquet who wore his dirty clothes to the Wedding? (Matthew 22) (Our clothing represents our holiness in the Works of the Lord.)
Can we miss heaven, by failing to pluck out the lustful eye, or cut off: the lecherous hand, and the prurient foot?
Can we miss heaven, by being a Tare among the Wheat? (Matthew 13)
Can we miss heaven, by failing to recognize God’s treasure in the field, and the pearl of great price, and failing to sell ALL, to buy that treasure?
Can we miss our calling, by lying about our lives and our deeds, like Ananias and Sapphira? (Acts 5)
Were these testimonies, teaching illustrations, symbols, and warnings given to us by God himself to be ignored, or to be valued, seriously considered, and marked down as blessed important markers showing us the way to His Heavenly Home.
Are we fools for Christ, or fools for our own sake?
That’s a choice we have to make. If we choose to live in all purity, holiness, and righteous before the Lord, we will look like fools in front of the world. And we will risk appearing to those in the world as condemning, self righteous, and “holier than thou” religious hypocrites.
1 Corinthians 3:18-21 (KJV) 18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 21 Therefore let no man glory in men.
But if we choose to live in compromise and complacency in worldly anti-biblical religion, we will Improve our standing before worldly people, but we will jeopardize our eternal inheritance in the kingdom of God. And we will cut ourselves off from the main power line of God, being filled with the Holy Spirit, powerfully declaring the Works and Word of God to this generation.
Romans 1:16-18 (KJV) 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Unfortunately, many signs of compromise can be seen in the majority of churches across America. Even in the pulpit, among both men and women, especially those in big churches, and in TV evangelism (a blot on the Work of God) promoting the Big show of religion (women with big hair, big dresses, high heels, glittering makeup, or the new, men with 1000 dollar shoes, and 2,000 dollar suits, or the alternative “cool hipster” ripped jeans, and tight pants, spikey hair, or whatever the new trend or new fad is taking over the show). These fake ministers are not walking in the purity of God, and they have no power from heaven to bring kingdom of God down to earth.
Whatever the case you can be sure of one thing, it’s all about the show. And the show must go on. The Devil is laughing in his boots at the people who follow fake religion that isn’t based in moral perfection, or based on the truth gospel of Jesus Christ but upon religious popularity, fame and fortune.
Sadly, people in leadership, and in the audience, often have no clue who or what is actually leading and guiding them, in their religious fervor. But if we see the God of Moral Perfection, the God of Sexual Purity, the God of Sacrificial personal giving, who is a servant to all, we can know for certain that he is not promoting a Fake Spiritual Religious Show to stimulate the masses every week.
That is the harlot Babylon. She prostitutes herself to the world to become rich and famous (buying fancy cars, luxurious homes, personal planes/jets “by faith,” for her “oh so important travel ministry”).
The True God of heaven is the shepherd of the sheep, he is out seeking, and seeking, and seeking, and saving the lost, the lonely, the marginalized, the poor and the needy. He is the God of the brokenhearted. He and his servants are compelling the lost to come into his house, so that his house may be full; Not so that he can get more tithes and offerings and money for his own ministry. (Matthew 22; Luke 24). He isn’t planning his next big event to raise money for his next building project. Is caring for the needs of the poor and needy all around the world. He cares nothing for the riches, luxuries, and seductions of the world.
A true works of God are done in secret. They are hidden from the world, and hidden even from the church.
When you give, give in secret.
When you pray, pray in secret.
When you fast, fast in secret.
Your Heavenly Father will see what you have done and He will reward thee in secret. This is the Teaching of Jesus: Matthew 6:4; 6; 18.
Did Jesus or the Apostles do it for the Money?
Yes, sir. One did. But it didn’t go well for him, and it won’t go well for the many pastors today who are doing it for the money either. Sadly, they did not take the original warning to heart.
What will happen to the body of Christ, when the one responsible, to teach, model (be a reproducible role model) for building relationships in the Holy Ghost in the Kingdom of God is actually motivated by money, and not the spirit of Christ?
What if he is motivated to become famous, well known?
What if he is motivated by political power?
What if he is motivated by personal pleasure and decadence?
Can you see the problem here begins with leadership?
Are you a Pastor? Are you considering engaging in Church Leadership? You must read Ezekiel 34, the whole chapter to see the judgement of God that will come upon “The Shepherds” who do not feed the flock their necessary food.

When they neglect to grow the whole flock strong, to make them healthy, to protect them from the Wild Beasts, and make them powerful witnesses in their lives, sharing the Character and Nature of God, being image bearers of His Kingdom.
Learn about how false shepherds feed off the flock, and get themselves fat on the meat of the sheep. And when the wolf comes to attack the flock and scatter, these false pastors run away, because they
This is a perfect indictment on the modern pastor of the modern day church, serving the modern church board, that is subject to the rules, and ways, and governments of men, and is not 100% submitted and immediately obedient to The Holy Ghost, and to the Son of God, who is the Head of the True Church, not man, nor any human entity.
The man (pastor, minister, teacher, evangelist, church leader) who is working for money is a hireling. He is not a true Shepherd of the Sheep.
A hireling is one who is hired to do a job (its a way of making money). And he can just as easily be fired.
In a family, you don’t hire and fire your family members. In fact, you can’t hire and fire your brothers and sisters. In the Church of the Living God, every one of them are your permanent family brothers and sisters for eternity.
Your pastor is called to be a wise and appointed leader, called to serve and lay down his life for the sheep. He will know the condition of the flock, and will have a heart (given to him by God) to do everything in his calling to raise up children of God into the full stature of Christ Jesus, or die trying. He has been given the responsibility to care for the flock. That is not a job it is a calling.
In the Kingdom of God, being a pastor, or deacon, or church elder or bishop, is not a job (or a career path)–It is a heavenly Calling, given directly from God as a gift to the Body of Christ in a certain location.
Ephesians 4:11-15 (KJV) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
and not a true Shepherd of the sheep. He will not stand in the day of accounting, he will run in for your way, just like Judas Iscariot, who is in the ministry for the money, power, influence, and the same. As soon as he sees the writing on the wall, and that the ministry of God is all about laying down your life for the sheep, and standing against evil with your own life in your hands before God, is called to lay down his life for his sheep he will exit stage left, because he has a hireling and he cares nothing for the sheep of God.
So promoting sexually flirtatious dancing on the front of the stage, and having some emotional episodes on stage, with the addition lights and smoke machines enticing the audience to dance, and giving them an emotional show, to worship singers and musicians who are directing them) but not having the truth of it in the heart.
2 Kings 9:30-31 (NKJV) 30 Now when Jehu had come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she put paint on her eyes and adorned her head, and looked through a window. 31 Then, as Jehu entered at the gate, she said, “Is it peace, Zimri, murderer of your master?”
It is the same addiction, and the same unclean penis at work, the same demonic influence that was in Noah’s Day, Abraham’s Day, Joshua, King David, and Solomon days, all throughout history. Some of the names and buildings have changed, but it is the same evil spirit producing the same spiritual destruction.
Most every idol in ancient pagan religion was sexual in nature, often related to a fertility king or queen. Many of the mythological gods were born out of rape, incest, beastiality, and homosexuality, you name it, they’ve got a religion for it. Often one of the idols was a pure phallic symbol–(that’s a fancy word for penis). Imagine a free standing penis, 90 feet tall, how creative and original.
The Anti-Holy God phallic symbol worship abounded at the time of Noah, when evil overwhelmed the Earth, when God destroyed the Earth with Water. When the sum total of men’s thoughts was only evil, continually, all the time.
Ever hear of Ted Bundy? His serial rapist and murder spree was all started by a porn addiction. Ted was a unclean anti-holy God phallic symbol, dirty penis, worshipper of darkness. (remember: Temptation >> Lust >> Sin >> Death. See the Pattern?)
Now try to imagine living in a whole world of Ted Bundy’s (and Jeffrey Dahmer’s, Charles Manson’s, and Adolf Hitler’s, with some of their children, like the Columbine Kids (Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold).
How much fun would it be for the average: anti-rape, anti-murder, anti-orgy, anti-devil, anti-abortion, anti-mental sickness, anti-human insanity, and anti-pride and ego maniac culture?
Who would be running the show and calling the shots in a world where evil men just took over the world?
Here’s a hint: Not Evil Men.
No. That would be way too easy to overcome. Just take out the evil men problem solved, right? Wrong. Because Satan would replace each evil sicko, with another one even more sick and demented. And that basically sums up human history wherever the Gospel of Jesus Christ has not brought liberty to the captives and set the people free.
Please Note: I am not talking about human religion. No. Not even if it slaps the name Christian on it. There are plenty of fake churches out there that are owned and under submission to the government. Oh, you didn’t know your church, your pastor, your deacon, and elder board were controlled and submitted to the state, and not to Christ? Just ask them this one question: Does this Church operate underneath 501c3, non-profit, corporation status? Are all our tithes and gifts tax deductible?
If the answer is Yes, that church is not operating under the Lordship and Headship of Jesus Christ, it is not %100% obedient and submitted to the Holy Spirit. It is a business serving the God of Mammon, as well as the State, and is required and commanded to follow all the rules, and laws, and prohibitions that the State will put on it.
In other words: That Church is NOT THE BODY OF CHRIST, MOVING IN THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT, DOING THE WORK OF HEAVEN ON THE EARTH. That Church is first and foremost, a business, following a business model, making money of the Word of God, and off of Religion itself. The Pastor is paid a wage, a salary. He is required to be obedient to the Board who are the Functioning Overseers of the Business. They can hire and fire Pastors every month if they want to. And they run the church to make money, to pay the bills, to promote building projects, and the like. And all the reporting, and such needs to be submitted to the State.
Can you see the difference between the Fake Church of Today, and the Real Church of the Book of Acts?
Do you see the Wide Gap between the Human Business of the Church (based on Money), and the Holy Spirit Authority of the Ministry of the Body of Christ?
Does your church make money off the Gospel, or do they raise money to serve the Gospel Free? Do they charge for books, seminars, special programs, the latest fad, (did they used to sell CD’s, Video Tapes, audio cassettes, do they buy television time, or radio time, and beg for money and sell more Gospel nonsense? Do they sell vacations? Do they sell Trips to Israel? To Alaska? Norway? Ireland? the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Hawaii? Calling them a Gospel Trip? A ministry Trip, or a missions trip?
Compare that to Paul’s Gospel Trips: Let me know if your Pastor and Church Elders would like to organize a trip like Paul’s.
- We could go to Saudi Arabia, or maybe North Korea, or Sudan, Nigeria, or Libya, and really preach the gospel, making it a truly exciting Gospel trip, trusting the Holy Spirit to Lead and Guide Us!
2 Corinthians 11:23-29 (NIV) 23 Are they servants of Christ? (I am out of my mind to talk like this.) I am more. I have worked much harder, been in prison more frequently, been flogged more severely, and been exposed to death again and again.
- Here is an example of a Real Genuine, Heavenly Organized and Heavenly Functioning Gospel Ministry (not a 501c30), that is run like a business.
24 Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. 25 Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was pelted with stones [Paul was actually stoned to the point that the crowd believed him to be dead], three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, 26 I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my fellow Jews, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false believers. 27 I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked. 28 Besides everything else, I face daily the pressure of my concern for all the churches. 29 Who is weak, and I do not feel weak? Who is led into sin, and I do not inwardly burn?
Do you think Paul was concerned about getting book royalties from his latest best seller, “Seven Ways to increase your Ministry—while relaxing on the Beach in Hawaii.”
Ok, that was a bit of a rabbit trail, but it does get to the core of the problem with Modern Christianity, and why it is so ineffective (LukeWarm, spiritually dead, and leaving no real impact on the society around it, but is actually lowering the bar of God’s Word, and being invaded and destroyed by the compromise of filling its pews with false converts), even with all the money, all the education, all the printing of books, media, sermons, at your finger tips. And yet still it is powerless to execute and fulfill its God Given Mandates.
- To Cast out devils, heal the sick, raise the dead, give sight to the blind, make the lame walk, the deaf hear, the mute speak, and preach the Gospel to the poor. Transform Society through personal Sacrifice. Be Salt and Light. “Love your neighbors. Love your enemies.” “Do good to those who persecute you.” “Rejoice when you are chosen to suffer for His Name!” Lay down your life for those in Trapped Darkness. Freely your have received. Freely Give.
- Is that so hard to do? No. It’s not hard. It’s impossible. No one can do all that. That’s just the point.
- Without Jesus Guiding (directing, possessing, empowering) and overcoming through the Life in the Believer (as an individual) and in the Church as a World Wide Holy Spirit Bonded Community (not a 501c3, corporate entity) …We can kiss the real work of God “Good-Bye!”
- Until we open our eyes, and we See and Read the Word of God as it was originally written to the original Saints who lived it out fully as the Holy Spirit gave them utterance, power, faith, and deep humility, until then, we will remain as ineffective as we are today!
- God has paid the price for us to walk in His Authority, to become HIS Image Bearers for Christ, but we must to pay the price to carry His Image Bearing Power into the World where He will send us. God’s Power and Authority will come to those who will believe and obey His Call. But if we are not willing to pay the price to Go, where He sends us, we will never experience the Power and Authority, that He has reserved for us. The Power and Authority are given to complete the Mission–To Preach the Gospel to Every Creature, not to build up some 501c3 Corporate Business.
- Is this making any sense? If you go to a church, and it conforms itself to the society around it. And it feels more like a social club, with a smattering of religion, (but not too much of course, to disturb the status quo, or offend the “____” –fill in the blank). If it doesn’t seek to train up each and every member in the Body to become a powerful Gospel Preaching, Teaching, Unmovable Rock, and to Extend the Kingdom of God into every dark area close by, and also have a vision to carry the Gospel to the Darkest places around the Earth. You are probably attending a 501c3, corporate Harlot, prostituting the Gospel for profit and for the benefit of those in charge of the Church. (I dare say this is the vast majority of Tares in the Wheat Churches around the USA, most closely associated with the Laodicean Church:
- What was the primary problem with the Laodicean Church? They couldn’t SEE. Why? Because they were Blinded by Mammon, the love of money (just like the 501c3 Church today). Check this out for yourself. It is a message directly from the Lord Jesus, to the Leadership and Whole Congregation of the Laodicean Church. See if you can see any parallels with the modern 501c3 Corporate Entity Church in America:
Revelation 3:14-21 (KJV) 14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot,
I will spue [spit] thee out of my mouth. [BTW–that’s not a good thing, being spit out of Jesus’ mouth] 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
- That brings up a Huge Point. This message you are reading right now is not meant to condemn. It is not meant to Judge (in the sense of put down). The writer is not saying he is better than those failing in the faith. He is not better, not higher, not more faithful, nor more worthy. He is broken and just as in need of grace, forgiveness, mercy, acceptance, and healing as anyone in the Body of Christ. This message is pointing out failures, weak points, problems, lies, deceptions, heavy duty misstakes, and the like. But is no way is the writer will to acknowledge he is better, more faithful, more whatever.
- We are all called to Test our words, and Test our faith, and Test our Churches, and test our teachings, and test our ministries, to see if we be in the Faith. We also test one another, challenge one another, speak boldly, and also in humility to one another. That is all part of having “REAL RELATIONSHIPS!” WE NEED EACH OTHER. We need to have accountability, to have counsel, to have correction, to share doctrine, to have dialogue, to have reproof, and training in Righteousness. We need to “Spur one another on to Love and Good Works!” That is what this writing is all about.
, following the same evil spirit, all feeding off each others addictions, and competing in their demonic sin filled inspirations. And that picture in your imagination won’t even come close to the evil reality being done In Noah’s Day.
Only Noah escaped “the Flood.” (And of course, his immediate family.) That was God’s Salvation for the entire world.
The Anti-God phallic symbol worship abounded in Sodom and Gomorrah (less 400 hundred years after the flood), in Abraham’s Day. It was out of control. The whole town demanded to have gang rape anal sex with God’s Destroying Angels, sent to destroy the City.
Talk about clueless. But that is exactly what sin and addictions do to clueless men, they sucks out their brains, and “suck in” evil. How would you like to spend eternity with these gang rapists of Sodom? I wouldn’t, and I for one, and glad they won’t be in heaven, bringing their unclean, phallic, dirty penis, evil worship to heaven to pollute God’s Holy Family.
Only Lot escaped “the Fire” sent by God to destroy the evil dirty penis worshippers of Sodom and Gomorrah. (And his two girls.)
Earlier I said, God (Yahweh) is the God of the Clean Penis.
Wanna guess who is the god of the dirty penis?
Satan is the Master of the Dirty Penis, and the instigator of Sodomy. AIDS, STD’s, STI’s, Syphilis, Madness, and Death. This is what Satan loves to do. Tempt men to sin against God and then watch men come under the judgements of God, the curses of God, and then laugh at the men, even as he is engineering their next destruction.
Satan sets up stupid men to fail. Then he laughs his face off, as men do what he tells them to do. Satan and his hoards love to see men destroy others, then destroy the world, and then destroy themselves. Do you remember Hitler committing suicide after killing 6 million Jews and the instigator of the war that killed approximately 85 million people in war related deaths (fact checked from Wikipedia.)
Again … John 10:10 (KJV) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy :..
Anyone remember World War One? Satan winds up the Machines of destruction, then pushes the poor fools into war to kill one another for their own noble causes. And they all follow his lead, his lies, his evil spirit willingly. How stupid is that? Then, he watches and celebrates in delight their horrible deaths based on his lies.
World War One and Two, based their theology on the Theory of Evolution. The strong survive and the weak perish. But guess what that’s all a lie from Satan, both the strong and weak die together in the trench warfare of horrific evil suffering, stench, disease, and decaying bodies all around you. What could be more close to the picture of hell? “Where the worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”
In other words, burning, decaying, worm infested bodies, all around you filled with eternal suffering.
Getting back to Evil Sexual Temple Worship …
So what does all this Anti-God, Phallic Symbol, Pagan, Devil Designed, evil perverted, dirty penis, sexual addiction, religious orgy, worship produce.
Unwanted babies. So what does Satan do, when he has too many unwanted babies on his hands? Yes. Of course. he creates another religion to kill unwanted babies as a part of his evil temple worship, which now includes Child sacrifice. He creates gods like Molech (chief god of the Ammonites), and Chemosh (god of the Ammonites), Adrammelech and Anammelech, (the gods of Sepharvaim, used to they burn their children in the fire, 2 Kings 17:24-41), Baalim, and Ashtaroth (the gods of Syria) and so on.
What happens in their worship services?
A Live Unwanted Baby is placed in the arms of a Bronze Idol, like Molech or Chemosh, heated by a flaming furnace, with loud drums playing all around (to mesmerize the mind, and also to drown out the sound of the screaming baby), while the baby gets burned alive, the worshippers, stand in awe and praise the power of the great Molech, a dead idol, designed by Satan, who is laughing at all the worshippers destroying their own children, by giving them to this sick and abominable idol he created for his own amusement, and sick entertainment.
If you ask me, this kind of worship has travelled a long way away from the worship of Yahweh, that commands his worshippers to Love God with all your heart, and Love your Neighbor as yourself.
Of course, today, we are way too civilized and too sophisticated to fall into the worship Molech, at a temple, we simply send our young and vulnerable daughters (that we have abused sexually) to the Abortion Mill. There, we cut the baby’s vocal chords at the first chance we get, to drown out the baby’s screaming. Then, we simply kill the baby in the mother’s womb, cutting the baby into various pieces, so we can sell their body parts on the open market. That’s so much more civilized, than Molech worship, don’t you think?
Come. Let us Reason together:
Lev 18:21 ‘And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD.
Leviticus 20:1-5 (KJV) 1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. 3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. 4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not: 5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
I adamantly believe that if God was speaking today to our nation, he would say: you’re not allowed to send any of your children to planned parenthood, to kill my innocent and precious children.
Ezekiel 18:24-32 (KJV) 24 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die [be sent to hell].
25 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal [not just]. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal [not just]? are not your ways unequal [unjust]? 26 When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die [be sent to hell].
27 Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive [not be sent to hell]. 28 Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die. 29 Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not equal [not just]. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal [just]? are not your ways unequal [unjust]?
30 Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.
31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? 32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye [and you shall live, not go to hell].
[In other words, men without the Spirit of God, reason that God is unjust, but Men who live in God’s Counsel, respecting His Judgement, honor his reasonings. They accept and believe in His Word, that His Ways are full of justice, mercy, forgiveness, and hope all depending on their willingness to repent of their evil ways.
Still not convinced we need to have our sins made white as snow? If anyone cannot see this, they have indeed been blinded by the evil one.
God’s Powerful Purpose for Sex:
One Man joined to One Women–Living in Holy Sacred Marriage Covenant of Love. Creating a Faithful Heavenly Family, of Protection, Provision, Promotion, Promise, and Divine Purpose, in order to become:
1) Perfect in Him (spiritually alive and beautiful) united with God in the Light of His Holy Kingdom, and
2) United with each other in a blood covenant relationship with their Marriage Partner and with God’s Holy Spirit Binding them together, blessing their marriage and making them fruitful.
3) Fully satisfied in God’s heavenly bond of love.
4) To Reproduce “Godly Offspring” Children of God who will carry his Holy Image in their Lives, spreading His Glory and Majesty throughout the Earth.
Satan’s Perverted Purpose for sex:
Use sexual addiction, and demonic sexual perversion to Destroy the Marriage. Promote Dirty Penis Sex. Sodomy, Pedophilia, Sexual Slavery (Sex Trafficking), Orgies, Prostitution, beastiality, anything that can pervert God’s Clean Penis Sex (One Man, One Woman becoming One Flesh, forever).
Satan plans to: Attack the mind, heart, soul, and spirit of men and women, keeping them insecure, self conscious, confused twisted, emotionally unstable, socially vulnerable, unprotected. He promotes Rape, Incest, Sadism and Masochism, and deeper evil that should not even be mentioned.
Satan’s goal is to harm and Deface the Holy Image of God in men, women and children making it completely unrecognizable, and also to kill and destroy them.
If you ask my he has done a pretty good job of meeting his goal.
Can you see this? Satan wants men and women to harm each other sexually, and become addicted to that, thus destroying God Whole Holy Purpose for Marriage and Sex.
Satan wants men and women to become:
1) Polluted and perverted (spiritually sick and ugly, to themselves, to each other, to God, and even to the devil),
2) Divided in the sickness of the soul, focusing on a thing, or a feeling, [rather than upon the Image of God, and the Glory of God, wrapped up in the individual, God has given them in His Majestic Marriage Covenant],
3) Never satisfied, with demons in demonic darkness, surrounding and manipulating their thoughts, feelings, actions, addictions, and wicked lifestyle– constantly harrassing, harming, and eventually destroying them.
4) To Reproduce “Hellish Offspring” Children of Darkness, who will carry Satan’s idolatry, and the worship of self, and spread it throughout the Earth. They will become:
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
(Romans 1:30-32, KJV.)
Satan’s children will also become:
Lovers of their own selves, covetous [greedy], boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
(2 Timothy 3:2–5)
And yet, these self-deluded children still think they don’t need God’s Law, God’s Gift, God’s Truth, God’s Promise, or God’s Invitation to get their sins to become White As Snow … they believe they are just fine on their own.
But we know they are far from fine, if we know His Word. That puts us in an invaluable position to be able to help the lost soul find God, and lead them into God’s Laws, Promises, and Blessings.
I would dare say, less than 1 in 100 marriages, maybe even less than 1 in 1000, have unions where the man and the woman were true virgins when they entered the Marriage Covenant Ordained and Required by the Perfect Law of God.
Can you see how few people are following the counsel of the One True Loving God? Just do the math. Then, “Come and Let’s us Reason Together. Though your sin are like scarlet them will become white as snow.”
So what have we replaced the Holy Family of God with? Let’s see if we can do a little natural logical common sense reasoning … Can we give it a try? Are people more satisfied, and more blessed, by being free from God’s Law, or from submitting to and obeying God’s Law?
You do the math:
What have we replaced God’s Plan of Virginity with? What do we have instead? Have we done a good job? Have we improved on the free gift of God?
Do people experience consequences from rejecting God’s Sexual Laws? You bet. Severe, and Horrific, temporary and permanent consequences.
Let me count the ways: AIDS, Syphilis, Herpes, Hepatitis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HPV, PID, Chancroid, and the list goes on.
So how many people are blind to the Law of God, and not taking God’s Warnings against committing sexual sin? How many are deluded into rebelling against God’s Free Protection Program?
How many have died from AIDS?
In 1992, HIV was the leading cause of death among men ages 25–44 in the United States.
So as you can see sexual sin is no joke, but are people listening to God?
Approximately 38 million people have aids HIV aids currently, (2020 statistic) according to HIV.gov
In 2015, about 1.1 billion people had STIs [sexually transmitted infection] other than HIV/AIDS. About 500 million were infected with either syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia or trichomoniasis. At least an additional 530 million people have genital herpes, and 290 million women have human papillomavirus. STIs other than HIV resulted in 108,000 deaths in 2015. In the United States, there were 19 million new cases of STIs in 2010. Historical documentation of STIs dates back to at least the Ebers papyrus around 1550 BC and the Old Testament. There is often shame and stigma associated with STIs.
Sexual Sin doesn’t just produce physical diseases, it produces social, moral, and spiritual diseases that are even more devastating: Broken families every where you look (both inside and outside of church). Also: Rape abounds. Incest abounds. Pedophiles abound. Every kind of sexual perversion abounds. LGBTQ+ abounds. Confusions abound.
Broken marriages. Broken parent child relationships. Broken sibling relationships. Sexual perversion infesting every relationship at some level. Marital infidelity. Teenage Pregnancy. Child abuse.
And the ultimate Child Abuse: 50+ million abortions, paid for by yours and my tax dollars.
Sexual Sin amounts to Countless billions of dollars and billions of hours devoted to our own destruction. Countless millions of hours of perverted entertainment wasted on promoting sexual sin, watched in nearly every family household.
Teaching children to be full of: lust, pride, greed, materialism. Selfishness, anger, hatred, violence, murder, revenge, and every kind of evil is exalted and worshipped on the Big Screen TV.
Take Note: We will stand before God and give an accounting for everything we have done to promote the darkness of sexual sin, and everything we have not done, to reverse this darkness. Every hour we have spent wasted seeking evil pleasure–watching evil entertainment is recorded against us and written down in our heavenly criminal record kept in the courtrooms of heaven.
Are we sure we don’t want our Sins Washed White as Snow?
Heaven will have its Day in Court, and every man, woman, and child will be repaid for the deeds they have done, and the ones they neglected to do.
Man’s Plan vs. God’s Plan: We have to choose to stand up for what we believe is right, according to God’s Eternal counsel, or we will fall victims of this world’s lies.
For example: For 1,000 of years, boys were boys, and girls were girls. But suddenly, now, Boys think they are girls and visa-versa.
Children are being trained in the World of Confusion. They don’t even know if they are male or female, “Hath, God said, ???” It is the adults who are thinking and living like devils, and driving this madness in our schools, in our courts of law, in our businesses, and in the media.
Who is behind this madness? It is a well organized and highly sophisticated attack on the people of God rooted right here in America. Adults and demons are training our confused and lost children–Who is to blame? The Adults! Those who have forcefully rejected the Salvation of God, and as a result Hate God’s Law which is the very tool God lovingly designed to protect all mankind from their own foolish confusion and their own devastating destruction. And they are doing their best again to make it illegal to Teach and Preach the loving, true, powerful Word of God, calling it ‘Hate Speech.’
Adults are setting their children up for destruction, because they have departed from the Law of God. They have rejected the Counsel of God. They are blind to the Spirit of God. They are not sitting down, coming Reason Together with the LORD (YHWH/Yahweh). They are doing exactly the opposite of his counsel and commandments. And the results, are disaster, degradation, destruction, and DEATH. Not to mention Wars, and rumors of Wars, between individuals, communities, and nations.
More than 36 million people have died from HIV/AIDS that’s a larger population the all the people in Saudi Arabia, or Venezuela. And yet, ideally, it is a completely preventable disease. Not one person would have AIDS if sexual immorality was not so out of control.
This is just one plan of the enemy to destroy people, built on the full cooperation of sinful men willing and eager to walk in dark ways.
If men would only choose to walk in the Light, and Jesus is in the Light: Wars, Darkness, STDs, Famines, and Plagues would cease. Prisoners, Captives, slaves, and the poor would be set free. The premeditated murderous minds of hell would be shut down, if only all the people would sit down and reason with the LORD.
What’s God’s Solution? God is calling those who live inside His Word (and have entered into a Covenant Relationship) to reach out and save his precious ones–both perpetrators and victims.
Acts 13:47-48 (KJV) “I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.” 48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and [they] glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
So if you see: If your eyes have been opened … every person you meet through the Eyes of God (even your past enemies), you will see them as a potential child, a son, a daughter, a family member of our Holy Father in Heaven. As such, you know that you will have to answer to Him, for anything you say, about his child–Anything you teach his child, or try to do to his child.
In other words, you will be answering to a completely different Kingdom (than those in the world). You will be following a completely different Rule Book. You will be living by a completely different Spirit, with a completely different Standard–that is if your eyes have been opened.
Those who don’t open the eyes, will likely reject God’s Laws of righteousness, and likely to embrace “folly” (foolishness that leads to destruction), likely getting STD’s, divorces, sexual perversion, wars, murders, abortions, drug overdoses, drunk driving, evolution, racism, and the like, and think them normal.
Have you ever sinned against another person in this Life?
If you have, you have sinned against God.
As an experiment: Go ahead. Just picture yourself trying to seduce a Child of the Mighty God (no matter what age he or she may be). Use your provocative words, your provocative dress, your lecherous touch …
Now picture: God is in the Room with YOU. He is watching and recording every thought you have, every move you make, every word you Speak.
His Word says, He is storing up wrath for the day of Wrath. It says, the
… the impenitent [unrepentant] heart stores up wrath against the day of wrath when the revelation of the righteous judgment of God will come. When every man will receive his due reward, according to his deeds:
To them who by patient continuance in well doing they will receive, glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, they will receive indignation and wrath, as well as, tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil,
Now picture: What are you going to say to God on the day he judges you for every sexually perverted thought, word and deed? There will be no pleading the 5th … sin? Even if you did not commit the sin in the physical, you thought it:
Matthew 12:36-37 (KJV) 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word [careless word, wrongful word] that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
With God in the ROOM: Now, try and sin against God, and against His Daughter (or His Son), that He bought and paid for … with His Own BLOOD! The Daughter He created in His Own Image, and Likeness. The Daughter He breathed the Breath of Life into. The daughter that he formed in her mother’s womb. He has planned to save and deliver her from all Evil: All Darkness, All Mental, Emotional, Physical, Legal, Educational, Media and Social Abuse. And … He will save her, just as He saved Mary Magadelene, the one possessed with 7 devils. (Mark 16:9)
That Child is His: even though you don’t see it. Even though they are in a current swirling whirlpool of deep evil, and dark depravity (partying with devils).
That Child is His! That child may be on TV. Maybe in a adult rated Movie. Maybe in a Porn Flick. A raunchy music video. That doesn’t matter. At anytime that you think of that child in anyway other than the Way God has said to think about her (in purity and holiness), you have crossed the line of His Family Holiness.
You have broken His covenant of Purity. You have degraded and defiled his holy child (to indulge your wicked lusts), that He made in His Image, and made for His Glory, and your will have to answer to Him for that crime (for every thought, word and deed that is unacceptable to the Father of Perfection). (Matthew 5:27-32)
Chances are you have done this, (like myself) I imagine the the majority have? In this case, being in the majority is not a good thing! (Matthew 7:13-14)
If my guess is right, and I believe it is:
You now have a criminal record, on your account. Be it in thought, word, or deed. You have a transgression against Him, on your account. (More than likely you have a multitude of transgressions on your account against you that need to be made white as snow.)
Now on the day you stand before him: the day you enter into his courtroom of justice and judgment (pardon or punishment) … on that day: Will you bring the pollution of the World, the Disease of Sin, the Virus of Wickedness, the Plague of Uncleanness, in infection of Lasciviousness, and all this prurient evil in your false worship, and love of idolatry into God’s House? Will you be ready to be judged by God’s Holy and Permanent, Unmovable and Never Changing Law?
Do you think God will want all that evil to infect his family? Want your to bring that sin of wickedness into His Home? Want your corrupting influence to pollute His very own precious Children?
Would you invite an unrepentant, hormone driven, perversion seeking pedophile to live with access to your children, nieces, nephews, and neighborhood children? If you did, you would be just as guilty as the pedophile for any evil he would do, for not preventing the inevitable.
So how does God feel about ALL this?
All you have to do is ask Him, and He will be gladly tell you, from His Word, it has been written down, so that no one can be mistaken, and so that all can see, hear, and know His Mind. So here it is.
Matthew 18:3-6 (KJV) “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
If you ask me, I’d have to say, God is pretty clear about this point. There are no, If’s, and’s, or but’s about it. It would be better to drown yourself, than cause a child to stumble or be offended. And from God’s perspective, all his people are his children. Don’t dare, cause them evil. It won’t go well for you. Not ever.
The Entire Sermon on the Mount, (Matthew 5:1-7:29) makes this point abundantly clear. If you want to come reasoning with God, That is a great place to start.
Ok, so that is a sample of of what can go wrong when you treat a child of God with ill intent.
That is a simple example of a transgression of commission (sins of intent).
But is that the only kind of behavior God is going to judge?
What about transgressions of omission (sins of neglect) are they not just as serious and just as condemning, as the sins of commission (sins of intent)?
Suppose you had a chance to save a child, to help a child, to protect a child of God, to train a child, to nurture a child, to give life to a child–And You Chose Not To!
Proverbs 24:7-12 (KJV)
10 If thou faint in the day of adversity,
thy strength is small.
11 If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn [near] unto death, and [not rescue] those that are ready to be slain;
12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not;
doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?
Consider this: Abortion, today. 50 million babies slain in their mother’s wombs, in America, since I was in High School. A 50 Million baby killing machine has been unleashed in my lifetime. A Cash Cow for UnPlanned Parenthood, and for the Kingdom of Darkness, and for Satan. The devil is a murderer from the beginning!
Remember, every sin against one of God’s Children is a Sin against God. Here you have 50+ million and counting.
“If we say: Behold, we knew it not;
doth not GOD that pondereth the heart consider it? and GOD that keepeth thy soul, doth not GOD know it? and shall not GOD render to every man according to his works?”
What does God think about this? Come, now, Let us Reason together, Saith the LORD.
Where might we find an answer to God’s Will on the Sins of Omission? Where is his word should we go to find that answer?
Check out His Reasonings again, in Matthew 25:
Matthew 25:41-46 (KJV) Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Can you see the sins or transgressions of Omission? They are just as serious and the sins of Commission. Can you see how a baby in the womb, innocent, defenseless–fits the full description, “ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE?”
The Truth be Told if we are serious about wanting to participate in the Life to Come, in the Heavenly Family and the Heavenly Promises that God has purchased for us. We will need to see everything we are, say, do, and think through His Heavenly Lens of Holiness, Purity, Godliness, Righteousness, Loveliness, Grace, Mercy, Truth, Justice and Faith.
To get to such a place, we must dig into His Word. WE MUST REPENT OF OUR SINS. We must get them washed and cleaned out and WHITE AS SNOW. We must be ready to be transformed into His Likeness, His Image, His Goodness, Kindness, Mercy, Faithfulness, Truthfulness, Gentleness, Humility, and Love.
If we are not changed, if we intend to bring our vile selves and our defiling attitudes, and degrading mental images, and worse into His Heavenly Courts, I think we will be surprised at the welcome we will be receiving.
It may not be a joyful one, or even a welcome one:
Matthew 22:11-14 (KJV) 11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? [A ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS] And he was speechless. 13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
If you are make your election sure: If you whole heartedly and seriously respond to His Call … If you choose to give your best effort to His Word and His Work … If you recognize that everyone you meet is a potential eternal brother or sister, that they may potentially become closer and more faithful to you than even your own brother … If you actually learn the meaning of “The Greatest among you will be your servant” (Luke 22:25-27) and put that knowledge into practice in your daily life, then I would dare to say: It would be impossible for your Life not to Bear the Living Eternal Fruit of God, and that your eternal Treasures and Storehouses of Heavenly Blessings will be poured out on your life and those around you. And it will be evident to ALL that you have sat down with God, and have come to reason together with Him about His Kingdom and your Life, and you will never regret having done so–if you continue to stay the course, and be not moved away from your original commitment to the Blood Covenant of God.
2 Peter 1:10-11 (KJV) 10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
PS–In the Blood Covenant, we will address the role of persecution, trials, and tribulations. They will play a huge and an important role in your life, (especially as we get nearer and nearer to the end) if you thoroughly intend to walk in Jesus footsteps…
It is not hard nor awkward, to treat others as Holy Children of God, if you are clothed in His Righteousness, in fact it is easy, natural, and comfortable.
But if you are not clothed in His Righteousness, not immersed in His Salvation, then yes, it would feel awkward, strange, uncomfortable, and even feel foreign, to treat strangers and enemies with love. In fact, sometimes it might seem close to impossible to treat even your own family members with love and kindness, generosity, and forgiveness. Even your own children, or even your own wife may not receive the depth of your love, if you have not the Glory of God living inside of you.
In others words, if you think you have all you need already, you are probably just thinking about yourself, and only focused on what you want to get out of this life for yourself. And you have little concern about the others around you. And yes, it is natural to think that way, when you don’t have the Power and the Life of God active in your life.
The Truth be told, you would fit right in with the rest of the world who thinks the same. And the truth be told, you will receive the same reward of heaven, that the rest of the world will receive that cares not for the Reasonings of God.
Does Living Selfishly satisfy your soul?
Living selfishly feels good, only for a moment. Then the feeling is gone. It needs to renewed over and over again, 100’s of times a day. Chocolate anyone? No one will ever become satisfied by living selfishly. It is a virtual impossibility. If you’ve tried it you know what I’m talking about. Living selfishly causes you to compound addictions. Living selfishly leads you to destroy every good thing about you. Living selfishly can cause a man to ruin his life, destroy his family, and wreck his marriage for an entire lifetime for 30 seconds of pleasure in ejaculation.
Living selflessly goes against the grain of our carnal self. It feels wrong to the natural mind, And yet it is the way to heaven.
Living selfishly will never create a long lived satisfaction. No sir. In fact, there is “No Satisfaction” in living selfishly, always consumed with thoughts about yourself. This is a DEAD-END STREET.
That is exactly where the devil is taking the whole world that is following him. It is in the nature of the devil himself, to be thinking about himself all the time. He is consumed with self, because he has rejected God. And he wants all his followers to be consumed with self, and disconnected from God. God’s nature is to be consumed with others. He is always thinking about what good he can do for others.
All the Angels will be Judged, The Devil will be judged, the demons will be judged, and all man kind will be judged by the Law of God. On the Day of Judgement the Full reality of God’s Beauty, Majesty, Glory, Honor, Greatness, Mercy, Forgiveness, and Love will be revealed in it fullness. Until then, we believe it, hope for it, receive it, and share it by faith. That day will be a fulfillment of a Lifetime of Hope for some. It will also be the nightmare of a lifetime for others, the thing they knew was coming but refused to accept.
May the Word of God challenge, shape, and perfect you in all of your ways. May His Reasonings invade every area of your Life. May you be Transformed by His Glorious Gospel, as you seek to know and honor Him and all that He has done for you.
May you see and treat everyone you meet as a potential permanent and infinite Child of God, and love them as your own potential personal Family member for eternity. And remember, God is is the ROOM. He is watching, hearing, recording every thought, word, motive, attitude, and deed. May every one Glorify Him.
From Numbers 6:24-27
May: “The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
May: “The LORD make his face shine upon thee,
May: “The LORD be gracious unto thee:
May: “The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee
May: “The LORD give thee peace.
And so they shall put my name upon the children of Israel [the children of God]; and I will bless them.
