“The devil went down…. to Oklahoma, lookin’ for a stone to throw.”

 

     There’s a reason they say people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones and the recent bombardment over the seven-foot statue of Baphomet that Satanist want to put up on the OK., state Capitol is but one of them.

Note: This is seated “Man?” with a goat’s head and horns with a human face from the nose down, with a boy and girl looking up at its face, with a smile.

The statue is largely a retaliatory move, a response by Satanists to the Ten Commandment statue placed at the capital in 2012. And the Satanists aren’t the only ones who want to keep-up with the “Joneses”. The American Atheists, Inc., reportedly want their own monument: so does a Hindu leader in Nevada, and an animal rights group, and the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. They all want in on the monument action, and space to pay “Tribute to their deity”, or, in the absence of one, their belief system. The clamor for fair play was so loaded that a moratorium was placed on any other monuments on Capitol grounds until a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union [ACLU (jb) Anti
Christ Lawyer’s Union] on the constitutionality of the Ten Commandments statue has been resolved.                                                                                                                                                         Ryan Kiesel, ACLU of Oklahoma’s executive director, says of the case, “We aim to ensure the freedom of future generations of Oklahomans to make their own decisions about faith remains intact and free from political interference. Whether you chose to believe in a god, a creed, a code, or simply to believe in yourself, your choice should be your own, not coerced or influenced by what the government wants you to believe.”

 Joshua 24:15 “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

NOTE (JB) As the Creator God has given each a free-will to choose, how can men even think to do less? Forced live is worthless, and God wants your love, freely given by love!

Aimee Breeze, a member of American Atheists, Inc., is part of another lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Then Commandments monument. In the complaint she claims that she views the monument as hurtful and she  says she tries to avoid the area when she;s in the capital. I though she was being melodramatic until I pictured my self walking past the hulking monstrosity the Satanists were proposing. I remember my first visit to Washington D.C., and my tour of the monuments there as dusk fell. I was awed and felt a swell of patriotism. If I had come across the menacing Baphomet looming near the sidewalk, I would have felt and emotion stronger than hurt, and I began to see where Breeze was coming from. If i had to see Baphomet on a regular basis, I’d avoid the spot myself!                                                                                                                                                        The Ten Commandments have a deep and personal and spiritual meaning to me. I endorse the wholeheartedly! But Satan? I have no desire to see a statue honoring this devil, anywhere. . .  period! It’s very clear that this statue proposal is but the tip of a huge iceberg! In a game of one-man-upmanship, none will win, because fair is fair, and even a child of six can tell that favoritism is not fair.                                                                                         Some Christians who say “Foul”, when the government allows a creepy statue of Satan, a Festifus Pole made from beer cans, or the Pastafarian’s image of the Flying Spaghetti Monster in government’s space will defend to the death, their right to have a Nativity scene. I agree with them wholeheartedly, really I do. But I also know that government-mandated religion is precisely why several hundred years ago the a bunch of persecuted Christians sailed of into the sunset in a place where each could worship God in their own way, as each was convicted within their own hearts! This means that NO Government should git involved into any religion beyond insuring that not one is being hurt or hindered in any way to share or to spread their view, to anyone willing to  come to hear their message, on non-public grounds!  If it, the Government, gives X amount of square footage space for one, then it MUST also do the same for ALL other views, and seeing as how we have 40.000 so-called “Christian denominations”, who is prepared to see acres upon acres dso shrines?

Note:  (JB)Anytime Government and Church act as one entity, Persecution ALWAYS results, look at the European’s Dark Ages, where millions were murdered, and today’s Islamic Nations, is ditto!

Often Christians have a knee-jerk reaction whenever as issue like this arises. American they argue, is a country built on Christian Values and Principles: In God We Trust! We should proudly display the Ten Commandments, Nativity Scene, or any other religious symbol we choose. {(jb) WE surely can within our own homes!] While a legitimate debate can be held about the founders setting up a Christian Nation, there can be no doubts that they insisted there be a firewall in order to keep government out of dictating anyone religion, over another, and make no rules, no laws respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof….    end of Author’s writings…

 

John B…. God want’s our love, freely given, and when we learn to Love Him from His Word, via our Prayers for help and guidance in wisdom to understand it, as we begin to learn to know The father and the Son, we will begin also to love them, and it is LOVE, that makes us willing to serve and to worship The Father and the Son. God the Father and God the Son are bot Gentlemen, who use only Love and Truth, and will not ever use force, because forced love is worthless. So IF our Creator will not use force, but love, how can we not do the same?  Please know this  “A Person convinced against their will, is of the same minds. . . still!”

So all this should be in our homes, I have a framed copy of the Ten Laws on the wall on my right side, and asked and allowed the Holy spirit to write them into my heart and mind!

To this end people, I ask this to all who want to see the Ten Commandments every where, are you ready to see statues to Satan, right along side of each? If you say no, then are YOU  not guilty, of unfair practices, and discrimination?

Again we live in glass houses, as Practicing Christ men and woman, how can we then throw stones? God and his principles of love, grace and righteousness are far greater than any monument, and in the end all idols shall be ground into dust, and burned up in the Lake of Fire!  God is most able to defend that which is His! Amen?

What is HEAVEN? IS IT TRUE?

IT, in my experience, that if 100 people are asked these two questions, you’d get a confusing mix of answers! Because, few people ever read their Bibles, and sadly fewer still STUDY, their Bibles! Would Y O U, dear reader, be willing to grant, there is a huge difference between the two?

B.I.B.L. E. “Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth!”  There is NO other Book, upon this earth, that explains, the where, the why, the who we are, and where we each are able to go!

Yes man has the many ideas, assumptions, all without any solid scientific proofs, all full under the heading of Evolution! Most, of these so-called “Higher Learned Folk” begin with:     “Billions of years ago {Excuse me, they were not there, in fact no earthling has ever witnessed anything’s creation, even Adam was not conscious during God’s creating of Eve, thus ALL they have to give us is their personal ASSUMPTIONS and nothing more”] there was this tiny spec of a rock, about the size of a head on a pin, that was super, super condensed, so much so that it exploded, and expanded, due to loss of gravity (?)  and it resulted in the entire Universe!

Really?

The Universe contains, billions of Galaxies, each of which contains Billions of Stars/Suns, and all of this material came from something no larger than the head of pin! Who are they trying to kid?  The star, we call the Great Bear, is so huge it will not be filled up, if we put within it 1 Billion earths!                                                                                                                           Was anyone of them present to witness this phenomenon?

But please tell me which has a greater kernel of truth, man’s assumptions, or God’s Word? Look…….                                                                                                                                        Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”                  Titus 1:2 “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised                                   before the world began;”                                                                                          Now, that Y O U know God cannot lie, can the same be said for His creatures, mankind? NO!

Not to drastically change the subject here, but did you know that within the U.S department of the Treasury, there are a total of 1,800 doors? Each one having its own lock and key combination! Happily though there is one PASS KEY in the hands of Superintendent, that fits and works in  all 1800 locks!  You shout, “What’s this got to do with heaven”?                                                                                                                                            Great question: We also have a “Master Key”, to unlock the door to Heaven, it is Christ, and His Word, the Holy Bible!  Do you remember the Book and or the movie, The Boy that Returned from Heaven? Oh, it made a big splash, with many a Rev, getting onboard about the reality of this story! Well, when the “Hero” of this story got to be in his teens, he was 17 or so, when he publicly informed the world, that in his quest to become rich and famous, he made the whole story up!

In this all the Evolutionists and this young man have one thing in common, they both attempted to get rich by projecting a falsehoods, but this young man was much better than any evolutionist, he knew he lied, and confessed, with apologies, something no evolutionist commonly do, for to them its a RELIGION, and like religions one must have faith! Tyndale Publishers have pulled all the books from the market, after this young man’s act of courage.

Hebrews 11:8-10 “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.”

Please, read the above passage several times, knowing this: Abraham, who never saw God, was told pick-up and move his family, to a place unknown, yet was given a vision of city, made without human hands, so he packed up his stuff and family, and started walking.

Hebrews 11:11-14 “Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised. Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea-shore innumerable. These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.”

Yes, I also enjoy life, on this earth, but I also yearn, and desire, a better life, without hate, crimes, violent nature under Satanic control, nations and people, so quick to murder, for gain of territory and control, in fact the life I look forwards to is absolutely “Heavenly”!

Hebrews 11:15-22 “And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure. By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come. By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff. By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones. ”

Most of us know the Story of Moses, right? but look…                                                                        Hebrews 11:23-28″ By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment. By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.”

Moses, had the brainpower, if not the will, to have become the next Pharaoh of Egypt, and lived a live of ease, but he knew, that all things on earth are but temporary, then death takes us all, so all we have saved for, sacrificed for, now belongs to others, mainly the Government! Moses knew that there’s more to life that what flesh bodies avail us! That life with and due to Christ’s Gift, on that Cross, near 2,000 years ago!                                                Moses, then found more hope with the Children of Israel and God, than with the Egyptians and many gods.

In these last days, we see and hear of the 100’s of beheadings, hundreds thrown from tallest buildings, buried alive,  burned alive, females raped, over and over, then sold into slavery like any other “possession” ! Is there anything here, that keeps you wanting to stay here! This earth, in this state of evil, is not my home! Just look at our own nation the U.S. we have 1/2 of us protesting even the capital Punishment, of the most horrific murderer, in the morning, yet by the afternoon, they protest to keep legal the murder of any totally innocent baby, still within the wombs, and upon demand! Can you reconcile these two polar opposite ideals? One is totally innocent and the other, is totally guilty, yet they fight to save the guilty, and fight to kill the innocent! Go figure this, with, knowing that Satan, that evil devil, is laughing at us all!

Any True Christ man or woman, knows they are a “stranger here”, and want Jesus to return, to take them with Him, HOME!

 Revelation 21:1-7 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”                                            Please know, God loves ALL his children as SONS and DAUGHTERS.

Plus, also know, that all the sinners, all the unjust, and all the non-believers, shall NOT EVER leave this earth, as all are held “for Judgement,” until the 1000 years AFTER Christ’s Second Advent, His Return, as He left, in the clouds.                                                            John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”

Now read and think!

Revelation 21:9-14 “And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. ”

There are Passages, in the word of God, that shows all these 12 in total Gates, cover all 12 of the human character traits, letting us know that God’s Spirit, can, and is able to “Rebuild” anyone’s character, to be fit for heaven. IF WE BUT ALLOW IT, God will not ever force anything against our will, due to LOVE!                                                                                 Revelation 21:14 “And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.”

If, they, who fought amongst themselves, to be first, and or, the greatest, even one who rejected knowing Jesus, then surely Y O U can also make it IF y o u want to! But NONE can do this on their power or will….

 2 Corinthians 12:9 “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

Revelation 21:15-17 “And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. And he measured the wall thereof, a hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. ”

If the city is as wide as it is long, and as high, that makes it a cube, agree? A furlong is 1/8th of a mile thus: 12,000 divided by 8 = 1550 miles in circumference or 375 miles foursquare, and the height is equal to the width and breadth. Thus this “city’s” footprint is about the size of the states of  either Oregon or Colorado. Those who figure out these things, say that this city, could very comfortably house all who now live, and all who have ever lived! This shall be the “Home for the Christ’s own” , during the 1,000 years.

After which, Satan shall be loosed again, and the unjust, shall be resurrected, in the Second resurrection,——-

Revelation 20:6-8 “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.”

Revelation 20:9 “And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”

Note: Many are they that labor under the false teachings of men, who teach that this burning is for ever and ever! This is not my God’s teachings, the God of love, but this is from Satan, who himself will taste the flames, the longest, yes, b ut he too will have a end! Look…..

Malachi 4:1-4 “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. ”

3. “And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.”

If one is by fire reduced to ashes, can there still be life to feel pain? NO! Sulfur, “Brimstone” burns at a very high temperature, about 2,300 degrees F. How long can life exist at that temp?

4. Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.”

Obey and know, God’s Ten Laws Exodus 20: 1-17, and ask , in prayers for Jesus’ help and WE SHALL SEE Y O U THERE!  Please use your Bible to read:

Isaiah 33:34; and 35 :1-10. —–

Isaiah 60:17-21 “For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness. Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.”

Matthew 8:11 “And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.”

Can Y O U think of any question you may have for any one of the above men? Can you even think, that this and more is even possible?

Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”

Revelation 22:4 “And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.”

Can You only imagine, to look upon the face of our Creator, who loves each of so much, that He gave up every thing, including his own life, to pay our sin debts, so that we could be with Him forever?

Isaiah 65:17 “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”

We, all, shall have people, whom we dearly loved, but are not with us, they SHALL be removed from our memories, that they even existed! Is that not the most kind act?

Isaiah 65:21-22 “And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.”

Isaiah 65:25 “The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.”

As by now, hopefully Y O U can see that we’ll not be chubby fat little players of harps, sitting and playing endlessly upon clouds. We shall build our own homes, and UPON this reNEWED earth, purified by fire, the Lake of Fire that removes all traces of previous occupations and pollutions. We shall build our own homes, and build to last, forever. Grow our own food, and learn, and learn and learn!

Learn how to navigate to other worlds, to tell and be witnesses for God, about our salvation..

Hebrews 1:2 “Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;”

Hebrews 11:3 “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

MUCH TOO THINK ABOUT— CONSEQUENCES OF SIN.

Most Christians thin k of sins as breaking the Ten Commandments, agree?

Then Please tell the why, of the following verses.

1 Corinthians 10:31 “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”                                                                                                                                      This verse by itself, may not mean all that much, to most but keep on reading….

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

Now, nobody’s beliefs, will or can change this fact: “Christ died for the sins of all mankind, and HE did so , because He loved each one of us, more than His life!

With ! Cor. 10:31 in m in d, “Do Y O U really think that alcohol is good for your body? ” Drink too much in too short a time and you’ll die from Alcohol poisoning! Question:” In your mind, how much poison is too much for you?”                                                                            Yes, MD’s say that wine is good for us, but YOU get ALL the same benefits from grape juice, without any of the harm of alcohol! Just look at the huge cost alcohol takes from America. In  2010 we lost 38,000 people in traffic fatalities, but over 50% of accidents, alcohol was at fault. We lost 58,000 in the same year to suicides but that’s another story! This does not take into account the broken families, the homeless, the jobless, and the loss of work hours, that alcohol created, are all enormous! Perhaps the Author of the Holy Bible knew what He was talking about in….

Proverbs 20:1 “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.”                                                                                                                            Proverbs 23:29-30 “Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.”                                                                       Proverbs 23:31-32 “Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. ”

If one has ever “Kneeled before the Porcelain Throne” after a bout with alcohol, you’ll know exactly what the verses 31-32 are speaking to!  RIGHT?  Please know the Bible has no word for Grape Juice, it’s all called wine, — Yayin in the Hebrew.

TOBACCO— IN ANY FORM.

This stuff, in any form, just can NOT be good for us, agree? {I had a pack a day habit for 40 years, but when I threw all of it away, including ashtrays, I asked Our Father, to remove all thoughts, all cravings, and the habit of reaching for a smoke, from me..He did, then and there, now I know smokers stink of smoke! I know, and perhaps YOU do also, know smokers with lung cancers, or with only one lung, mouth and throat cancers, and a host of other ailments, with breathing, or the blood circulation system. Never mind the financial cost, mostly in governmental taxes, now we have tobacco black market smugglers! {I guess governments think, (they do?) that Mafia members have to eat as well?]                                                                                                                                                         Grass–WEED— the most commonly used drug today, and it’s a very insidious drug, because it is today many times stronger that what it was during the 1960’s, when today, those who used it then, thought it was harmless, but no longer! You see, it is at the bottom of a long list of illicit drugs, whose effects on persons, are greatly increased in the harm they cause. Ask any parent if they have no problems for their children smoking weed, it may surprise you!

We, as a society, are great at rationalizing., that which we do, right? From, it’s no worse than a can of beer, than one joint. But why take either one, to begin with? Has either ever truly solved any problem for anyone one? “Oh, it helps me to relax”, but then so does reading a good book, from which one can learn something of use!                                                  Plus, please remember, there are several nations, who are close to being controlled by the Drug Cartels, and your drug habit supports and makes them possible to exist, to bribe officials, to murder on a wholesale scale, does that not make the drug users, accessories before and after the fact?  THINK ABOUT IT!

                             FOODS: BUT…BUT HOW CAN FOOD BE A SIN?

Philippians 4:5 “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.”               Does the term “PIG– OUT”, mean anything to you? Man has a saying: “Eat of all foods given, but of all foods eat moderately”  Overeating  means taking in more calories than one burns in a day,  our body turns the extra calories into stored fat! No matter what the food is, eat more than you burn , you’ll pack on the weight!                                                                       Now, when you purchased your car, did you ask your grocer about the care and feeding of the new to you vehicle?                                                                                                                        NO, I am sure you consulted the owner’d manual, taking your cues from the manufacturer, right? Well, no matter if this is not what you many accept, but all people are created by God, and He knows what’s best for us in the way of foods, your acceptance or denial, changes nothing, beyond Y O U!

Genesis 1:29-30 “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.”

Meat equals foods. All live forms, able to move by itself, were vegetarian, until sin entered, and earth’s nature changed. But even after the flood, when the flesh of “CLEAN” animals were allowed, the best diet is still the Genesis diet, above. This the why, for Seven pairs of clean animals, but only two for each unclean, for they were not to be for food, for Noah and family, while within the Ark.

Leviticus 11:1-8 “And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth. Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat. Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you. Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.”

Leviticus 11:9-15 “These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat. And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you: They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination. Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you. And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray, And the vulture, and the kite after his kind; Every raven after his kind;”

Leviticus 11:16-23 “And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind, And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl, And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle, And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat. All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you. Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth; Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind. But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.”

Why? Why should this be so?  Look at what the “Unclean” life forms eat! They are all scavengers, or they eat their own waste, like rabbits, cats and dogs, their digestive tracts are to short, and they need to recycle their waste, in order to get all the nutrition they need! As for the scavengers, they are God’s Sanitation Departments, I mean who really want to taste a Breast of Vulture sandwich? Ditto for all marine life that has no scales nor fins, they are the marine garbage detail. eating them is as clean at baking one;s vacuum cleaner’s bag for lunch! Clams, shrimp, crab eat anything that comes their way, alive or dead, or waste from fish above! Octopus and squid eat those that eat everything, as do hogs, or swine. None of these are to be for food, for humans! Rome, of the Caesars, ate a great delicacy, fatted mice, want some?

1 Corinthians 10:31 “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”

So you love the taste of shrimp and lobster? Yes, so do I, but I’ve not eaten these from the moment I learned that God said no to them as food. With this Bible diet, I feel  much better, and at 73, I use no meds, and but for me using tobacco for 40 years, I need to cough up the bronchial mucus, as it no longer comes up by itself, the cost, of smoking, I must contend with. A Little joint pain, so Our Father has blessed me far beyond, what I deserve. But I ask Y O U, how can anyone honor God, by the eating, or drinking, or  the using of things He says is an abomination, or not a natural use to us?   Please, read on____

Isaiah 66:17 “They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.”                                                                                   Yes, loved bacon and ham, and pork chops yum, but I do not eat these thing anymore, because love helps me to please Him!

Matthew 16:26″ For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”

We LOVE our STUFF, do we not? The bigger, the flashier, the better, right? But when the first time your STUFF, said”I love you” ?  No God does not want anyone to be poor, but riches for riches sake is empty, that’s why for Matthew’s verse above! Remember the story of Lot and his wife? They were told to get out of Sodom, which was going to be destroyed, and not to turn and look back at it Lot’s wife did, she missed her comforts and stuff, but that yearning caused her to be turned into a pillar of salt!                                               Lot and Abraham’s herders were at a constant bickering state about their flocks turn to water them, so Abraham told Lot, chose to go left or right and I’ll go the opposite direction. Lot chose the lands near Sodom, and soon he moved into that city, so choices come with consequences, and the rest is history as they say!

So, if you are not consuming up to His standards, then know that this also is a sin…                Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Any sin carries with it the death penalty, remember the story of Adam and Even? one sin, and they lost their eternal lives…

Genesis 2:16-17 “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Satan, using the serpent, as the Ventriloquist uses a dummy, told the first recorded lie, that men still teach to this very day—–

Genesis 3:4-5 “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

How many are taught that at death, we go to our reward, as a living spirit? Forgetting or ignoring the many verses that show otherwise……

Genesis 3:19 “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”

Ecclesiastes 9:5 “For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.”

If one does not repent and seek forgiveness of all sins, or just cling to their favourite sin, then they shall be burned up with their sin (s)! In the Revelation’s Lake of fire, one time only use!

Some tell me, that far too harsh, but please tell me how harsh is eternal death? Yes the Living know that they shall die, but the dead know nothing remember? Yes, ALL shall be resurrected, but there are two resurrections, The FIRST, being all the just at Christ’s return, then 1,000 years later, the second resurrection for all the unjust, that shall be cast into the Lake of Fire! To show that this is not a forever punishing, but a forever punishment! The results shall be permanent.

Malachi 4:3″ And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.”

Why all the interest in GHOSTS?

OH, THERE’S A GREAT DEAL ON T.V. AT THIS TIME RIGHT?

Many have claimed that they have seen SOMETHING! But few know what they have seen!   Yes, much has  been written over time, all about this topic, of ghosts of the supernatural and spirits, including the biggest laugh of all the “Walking Dead”! Now if that’s not an oxymoron, one must be a moron to think that a a dead person’s still able to walk but now craves living flesh for food!                                                                                                               But, please, let’s at least be honest,most of this stuff, is written by human beings, and we all know humans have the willingness to lie, especially if they can make a buck while doing so!

So, do Y O U think that perhaps, or just maybe God knows a thing or two about this subject? Seeing that He is the Creator and all?

Ecclesiastes 9:5-6″For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.”

So what has God word just told us?                                                                                                        1. The living know they shall die.                                                                                                      2. The dead know not anything, nor on this earth do they reap any rewards, and we have forgotten them, they neither love, nor hate, nor envy, nor do they have any portion in any thing under this sun. THEY ARE DEAD! Their breath/spirit has returned to He who created it! Genesis 2:7.

 Genesis 3:19 “till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” [last part]  Is dust life?

  Luke 8:2″ And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,”

 2 Corinthians 11:14″And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”                                                                                                                                                           So if satan, the Devil can make himself appear as Jesus Christ, how can he not transform his fallen angels to a wispy look and sound alike on dead loved ones? Now knowing this we can NOT see Angels either good or bad, so they can over hear stuff, told in secret, and then they appear with the help of a medium or channelor to then tell the secret info that fooled you?

Now what is to stop Satan and his demons from perpetuating this foolishness, by making themselves out to be ghosts, or some such apparitions, to those who are gullible or those wanting to be fooled?

Never forget that Satan has penetrated even the mainline churches, whose teaching are contrary to the word of God, or that never teach Revelation or Daniel, or 2 Thess.2 or Jude, or parts of John?  Look..

 Revelation 13:2 “And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.”

 Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

Or how about this?

 Daniel 7:25-26 “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.”

Luke 4:14-16 “And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.”                                                                                                                                                             Note:  The Bible’s Sabbath is from Friday’s sunset to Sabbath/Saturday’s sunset, for THAT is the Seventh day Exodus 20:7-11. Yet 96% of “Christianity” worships on Sunday, so whom do they worship???????? Not GOD for He says They Sabbaths are HIS Holy days!

COMMUNION SERVICE as per THE BIBLE.

AS  there are over 40,000 different “Christian” denominations, there are probably just as many methods in this world for the “Do this in memory of me”!

 Luke 22:18-20 “For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come. And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you. ”

The Seventh-day Adventist Church, holds this service 4 times each year, !. primarily to keep this service from becoming common place. 2: After the services, we collect donations for the Church’s Poor Fund, for any emergency for those in need, even non-members.  3.This service is an open service, meaning even non=members can participate.

IN PREPARATION  FOR:

 

Luke 22:8-10 “And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the Passover, that we may eat. And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in. ”

Yet before this we each should be repentant and humbly seek forgiveness because….

 John 13:4-8 “He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.”

Note: This was a job normally allocated to a servant, not the Son of God! As was the custom, entering a home, one’s feet were washed, to remove the dust from the roads.                                                                                                                                    John 13:9-10 “Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.”                              Note: Foot- washing does not replace one’s bath. but it is akin to a mini-Baptism, and it’s meaning is nearly the same, at least to me.  The one that serves and washes feet of another, prayers to ask for the blessings to be meek and to be humble, as well as thanks, for this beautiful service, to remind us of the cost Heaven paid, for our salvation. Then the “partners,” switch places.

 John 13:12-15 “So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.”

 John 13:33″ Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.”

Note: Jesus will return to the Father in Heaven, very shortly. Jesus was preparing them for that time…..

John 13:34-36 “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards. ”

The reason that this should make us humble can be fully shown in Peter’s rash statement….

John 13:37″ Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake. ”

Most have heard of this from the Bible or a movie….                                                           John 13:38 “Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice. ”

 John 13:15 “For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.”

     Luke 22:19 “And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. “

Note: We are to do this in remembrance of Christ and His gift of our Salvation, at the cost of His life!  We are NOT told to remember His birth, byt to to remember His mercy, and His Holy day the Sabbath day the SEVENTH DAY OF EACH WEEK!

Yes this is all a very solemn service, of remembrance, one in which ALL partake of the Emblems of unleavened bread, and Grape Juice!

Note: Christ never made nor drank, fermented grape juice that we call wine. during the marriage i n Cana {John 2:1-11]    He had them fill six (6) stone pots with water each holding  a “Firkin” which means either 20 or 30 gallons each depending on whose numbers one uses. Thus 6×20= 120 gallons or . 6×30=180 gallons. look…….

 Proverbs 20:1 “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. ”                                                                                             Proverbs 23:31 “Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his color in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.”

Note: Fermented grape Juice  or wine, as we know it, bubbles from the bottom of the glass to the top,, and too much will get one drunk, now look at these verses and think YOU that Christ made alcoholic wines?                                                                        Luke 22:18 “For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.”                                                                                                1 Corinthians 10:31″ Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. ”

Note: So please, inform this dummy, how one can glorify God The Father, when one is drunk out of his or her gourd? I mean if there were 60 adults at that Cana wedding feast, even at only 20 gallons per “Firkin” that’s 120 gallons of “WINE”? or a gallon per adult?   How is this LIKE CHRIST????

Remember, Peter put his trust in himself, and  his own powers,what happened? 

1. Never put your trust in self, put it in Christ Jesus.

2. As His disciples kept falling asleep, don’t fall asleep concerning end-time events. Pray for guidance,j and wisdom.

3.   Don’t share Jesus with others, IF YOU yourself, have not been near Him.

4. Remember, Peter, in his anger and haste, cut of a servant’s ear, that Christ put back? Be not angry, ever.

5. Peter, was asked three times “Know this man?” He denied christ three times before the rooster crowed. Be therefore a true witness, as He is within you, at all times, in Spirit.  Peter was NOT present at the Cross, but he wept, bitterly!

6. Be near the Cross, at all times, within your mind/spirit. Keep your focus on Jesus.

7. When Jesus and Peter met again, after His Resurrection, and fast trip to The father, to verify if His sacrifice was accepted by The Father, He returned to this earth, and asked Peter three times,  “Do you love me”?  Then Jesus said, “Feed my sheep”.

This is my reason for these blogs, Feeding the Lord’s sheep, for He is our ONLY SHEPHERD!

STEPS REQUIRED FOR CONVERSION:

Thanks to book: “You Lead The way” pp. 74-75. by Lynn E. lee.

Step 1.  The first step in coming to God is faith/trust that comes from believing in Him.                                                                                                                                             Acts 16:31 “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”        ” But how do we know that God even Exists?”          A: Only God could create the Universe and earth of nothing and only God could put LIFE on the earth. Every plant and animal and person on this earth and every star in the sky proves there is a God that Created them.                                                 

Step 2. What proves the Bible is the Word of God?                                                              A: The many prophecies of the Bibl;e foretold the future, even eons before the fact. Only God has the ability to tell us the future.                                             John 14:29 “And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.”                                                                                                 Isaiah 46:10″ Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:”

Step 3. The Second step in conversion is repentance or sorrow fro sin. What is sin?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              A: Anything that displeases God , is a sin.

4.  How do we know what displeases God?                                                                     A: John 14:15. “If you love me keep my commandments.”                                                1 John 3:4 “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”                                                                                                   5. What are the Ten Commandments?

A:     We will learn right from wrong, by the study of the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20 1:17. And by our following the example set by Christ Jesus, by asking “What would Jesus do”?

6.  What makes us sorry for sins?                                                                                  A:   It’s gift from God, that He brings our hearts/minds to sorrow for sin. The love of Jesus that made Him willing to die for our sins, making us realize that sin is a terrible thing.

7. If we are truly sorry for sin, what will be the next steps we should take?                                                                                                                                             A: We’ll confess our sins, in prayer, in Christ’s name, and ask Him to keep you from slipping again then….                                                                                                         1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

8. Jesus calls these steps in conversion, a new birth because we are beginning a part of the family of God. What ceremony represents this new beginning and having becoming the children of God?                                  A: Baptism, the symbolic “Death” of the old person, by total  submersion under the water, and then our coming up from the water, , our new birth, and into the Family of God!  

9. After our past life has been cleansed and forgiven, what art we to do next?                                                                                                                                           A:     We are to follow Jesus and the path He set before us.

10. Can we truly conquer sin?                                                                                              A: Yes, if IF we are fully in Christ    Matthew 1:21 “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. “

11. What three things must a Christ man or woman do each day, to gain victory over sin?                                                                                                                       A:  (1) First thing each day, a private prayer to The Father, in Jesus’ name to guide YOU this day.                                                                                                                            (2) . WE must be still for a few moments, and then STUDY His Word, for that’s how MOST of His communications happens to us.                                                          (3). By upholding the 2nd, we shall learn to do as He wants us to do, in continual loving obedience.                                                                                                       PRAYER +  DAILY BIBLE STUDIES + OUR OBEDIENCE = A CHRISTIAN LIFE.

12. Is there anything else God wants each to do?                                                         A: Yes, He wants all to share Jesus with others, and all to become soul-winners. He has a place for every one of His children in His Vineyard, set aside for just that one person!!   

Won’t you accept His invitation to eternal life, with no pain, no sin, no sickness, and to be able to give a living lion a hug, and listen it purr to you, in loving thanks?

Thanking Y O U for your time

FOOTPRINTS.

THIS has been around for a long time, in print, and yes even in a songs, yet each time I read it, it lifts me up. I pray that it shall do the same for Y O U!

 

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed that he was walking along the beach with The Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of foot-prints in the sand. One set belonged to The Lord, the other set were his own. When the last scenes of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He then noticed that many of the times along his path of life, that at the lowest, most difficult parts, there was but one set of footprints. This really bothered him and he questioned The Lord about it.

“Lord, You said that once I decided to follow You, You’d walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand Lord, that when I needed you the most You’d leave me.”

The Lord replied, “My Son, my precious child, I love you and can not ever leave you. During your times of trials and suffering, when you see only one set of foot-prints, it was then that I carried you”!

So Please Dear Reader: The very next time you decide to hold a solitary “Pity- Party” and your spirits are low, remember this little story, Then the very next Sabbath/Saturday morning come to YOUR Seventh day Adventist Church, and be with those within whom the Spirit of Christ resides. [Sadly not all]
