“There are Bibles… older than the KJV”

Tags

, , ,

 

It is the Geneva Bible that accompanied the Pilgrims to America…
and it predates the King James Version of the Bible by 51 years,
one of the most significant translations into English and historic
In its own right, and be it known there has never been any fears
of import to what is contained in the various translations to bring
one to wonder if man has been the cause of its resilient source…
for God has always been in control… sitting over the mundane
affairs of man and ever so able to affect man by His outsource
and omnipotence, for though man has (indeed) written the holy
scriptures it was by God’s doing and direction it remains intact,
never a chance of happenstance or blind faith, as the world might
sooner suppose or assume, by a method for man to know: contact,
insight of God’s character, His will and desires for man and the
true nature of His existence is proclaimed throughout the writing,
for it is in fact… the very words of God that pierce man’s soul, and
the divide is one to cause belief or relief of purpose- hell is waiting.

 

When we compare side-to-side older versions of scripture with more current versions there are only modest changes (alterations) in the text; which signifies the majority of thought is still prevalent, strong and clear by meaning. Let’s compare the KJV and some of the other Bibles to see this truth plainly, look below…

 

Numbers 23:19 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/numbers/23-19.html
19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good

 

(This is from The Great Bible (1540) and seen below)

 

the-great-bible-numbers-2319

 

You can compare the verse listed above with other versions here. Please understand what is listed through them meant this, found by way of abstract [from Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible] below…

 

Men change their minds, and break their words; but God never changes his mind, and therefore never recalls his promise. And when in Scripture he is said to repent, it does not mean any change of his mind; but only a change of his way. If the Lord sees that we trust in his mercy, and accept of his salvation; that we indulge no secret lust, and continue not in rebellion, but endeavour to serve and glorify him; we may be sure that he looks upon us as accepted in Christ, that our sins are all pardoned. Oh the wonders of providence and grace, the wonders of redeeming love, of pardoning mercy, of the new-creating Spirit!

 

As to God being the son of man, that being Jesus Christ Himself, please know one thing… there is much more to the phrase ‘the son of man’ than most would presume or claim- especially if they are basing what would be expressed as truth is coming from a: supposition, assumption, speculation, thought or personal belief attributed as their own.

 

If one relies solely on one version (of the Bible) as the basis for their arguments of discord, or to dispel what one might consider truth, then they have failed miserably in their efforts- for the varied versions contain more similitude than not.

 
When it comes to physical proof Jesus existed, look at your watch and think why time is so precious to us all… without trying to squeeze what little time we find, in our busy schedules today, to be with the ones we love. Then look to the calendars we might use and think, why is there a time called ‘BC’ and ‘AD’ in human history? The answer as obvious as it might be… seems to be overlooked, wouldn’t you agree? It matters not when this actually started (or by who) for the fulcrum of time is divided by Jesus Himself- an eternity without time or an eternity thinking about the time he gave us to change… and didn’t is the most important aspect here.

 
Knowing something about a little history, and learning just how important it should be to each of us, is to discover how strictly Roman law was enforced. To defy the Emperor or the orders given a soldier in the Roman Army was to expect a sudden death would come quickly. To be placed in a position of power, having people under your command, is a position of authority… and where the centurion, named Gaianus, was after the crucifixion (most likely to be one and the same in charge of the execution as well), The Chapel of the Centurion of Armageddon.

 

[When people write things like this, seen below… and is written by a person named Negan [Negans Bat… on Facebook}, don’t attack them personally… but do challenge the ideas they would foster from the claims they present. If they can’t take the heat in ‘the kitchen of thought’ then they shouldn’t cook near the flames of truth… ones they express as being absolute. I’d like to offer an apology to Negan for not placing his name here (as the words below were written by him, and this was changed to reflect his concerns on Thursday, Jan. 12th, 2017) as he would like it to be openly declared. As to his claim I stole [slander is spoken information to damage one’s character, and libel is publishing false information damaging to a person’s reputation] from his post… No, it is still there. The words I used, Yes, but now you get into: Public Domain and Copyright infringement issues. Funny thing is… you need to have your words under Copyright protection for them to apply. See two links to this truth being covered before you see the words he posted at Facebook.]

 

Public Domain: as is thought for and of Social Media.

Ideas: here it is speaking about ideas (thoughts) being protected if they are covered by Copyright.

 

Jesus is NOT GOD
Jesus is NOT the son of GOD
Jesus is NOT in any historical documents
There is no physical item connected to Jesus
There is NO family of Mary or Joseph
There is 0 proof of Jesus
Jesus was created by the mind of man
Jesus is NOT real
You can not show physical proof he existed

 

 

How does one explain this then?

 

ossuary-inscription-reads%22jamesson-of-joseph-brother-of-jesus-%22

The ossuary has this inscription (picture from BAR… Biblical Archaeology Review),”James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus.”

 

Since there is a little saying in Latin, that reads,”Semper necessitas probandi incumbit ei qui agit (the necessity of proof always lies with the person who lays charges),” one should be quicker to show reasons for their own claims than to blindly rely on a false notion without providing proof to substantiate personal thought. I will offer two other readings for a couple of thought provoking forms of proof. The first being called,”Linger not on conjecture.” The second comes from a book written by a former homicide detective, an atheist turned christian, a book entitled,”Cold-case Christianity,” by J. Warner Wallace. See the book cover below…

“From the bricks of ‘ought’ to ‘thoughts’ of ought not”

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Yes, there is a Nation of people that was subjected to
the hardships of slavery, God’s own were once caught
and told when and where to work… how they made it
through was depending on their God of love and light,
His burdens will not be denied… and His own chosen
turned away to desire their way over doing it as sought…
this turned into the desires of another Ruler, Pharaoh,
forced labor… making bricks, to waste away their might,
consequences come from either man’s greed or God’s
need… it will be according to God’s will we have fought
if we are not doing things as He instructed us, who is
man to think they set in stone (with ink) what man ought?

 

Fear V

 

The Nation of Israel, and her people, have been subject to burdens of another’s desire for what she should or should not do at many times in their history. Forgotten is what our purpose or appointed chore becomes, in light of what someone else would have us do or even believe. Are we not all like this, in truth, when we would seek to set about our own desires over the desires God has for us? There are many paralells throughout the word of God, some symbolic or allegorical… and others considered quite literal, as the richness of God’s word is revealed to our minds and hearts.

 

The children of Israel were given the Ten Commandments, considered to be the Law of God, and something important enough to God to tell them how they should or should not live. This came by way of Moses, after the deliverance provided by God for His people from the bondage and suffering they endured in Egypt. Even when they knew what God had openly declared, having the manifestation of God’s directives in front of them (plainly stated) they still failed to find in their hearts a love for the heart of God themselves. When we seek other gods instead of the living God… distraction and deception of what God hopes to accomplish either through you or for you is blocked- often by our own doing or choosing to listen to what another has said and their false representation of truth… being in opposition to God.

 

As it is believed, and rightly so, we should break the bread of love often… and the word of the Lord is where nourishment for the soul and spirit come from- so let’s break open the word of God (the bread of life) to what He would have us understand about Himself and the purpose for our own lives that may yet be revealed to you directly.

 

Exodus 5:19 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/exodus/5-19.html
19 And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not minish ought from your bricks of your daily task.

 

forced-labor

 

[Coming from Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible, for the passage of scripture above, is found this view or viewpoint.]

 

Pharaoh estimated the character and power of this God by the abject and miserable condition of the worshippers and concluded that He held as low a rank among the gods as His people did in the nation. [Is this your view also?]

 

Exodus 6:5 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/exodus/6-5.html
5 And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant.

 
Exodus 6:6 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/exodus/6-6.html
6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

 
When we seek God first is when we find we gain by being in alliance with Him, and we will begin to open ourselves up to listen for His direction over anyone else… even over our own. What we ought not believe is any belief devoid of God Himself, any religiosity which will Harden your heart to love of and for your fellow man (humanity itself).This means God’s way ought to be most important to us: knowing He has chosen us before we chose Him… an understanding to His power of omniscience, showing His love is even offered to a critic… His is the power to forgive and change the strongest mind being omnipotent, and able to do as He will to direct followers and use enemies (those against God) for His own purposes… nothing being done is not seen as God is omnipresent.

“Find the Savior in Christmas again”

Tags

, , , ,

Christmas is not about the presents under the tree
but how much of Christ’s presence is in you and me,
here is where ‘you and I’ are the same, born into sin,
there is no goodness found in us for us to even grin,
there are none good but God alone, for He is ideal
in: model, perfection of goodness… example so real
to reach down and become as man man’s sacrifice,
now the paschal lamb… born was He to die for peace
between God and man, restored the connection, link,
death itself rendered null and void, for what we think
has never been above the thoughts of God by call…
yet to realize it when we see ourselves to be so small,
Jesus’s birth was heralded by angels, more than a man
was He, and lowly shepherds were told first, God’s plan
to show parallels throughout His words to us in grace…
to know, unmerited, His love would lead us to His face,
to know us, each one, personally as we’re to do the same…
Jesus showed us God’s attributes, the Savior is His name.`

 

[The words below, if not for some of the peculiarities of time and historic accuracy, might even be thought of as coming from within this time, the modern day, and seen as if we quickly approach ‘the end of days’ or time of mankind’s reign.]

 

Lament for us; that the Only-begotten is blasphemed, and there is no one to protest; the Holy Spirit is set at nought, and he who could refute, is an exile. Polytheism has got possession. They have among them a great God and a lesser; ‘Son’ is considered not to denote nature hut to be a title of honour. The Holy Spirit does not complete the Trinity, nor partake in the divine and Blessed Nature, but, as if one among creatures, is carelessly and idly added to Father and Son. The ears of the simple are led astray, and have become accustomed to heretical profaneness. The infants of the Church are fed in the words of impiety. For what can they do? Baptisms are in Arian hands; the care of travellers; visitation of the sick; consolation of mourners; succour of the distressed; helps of all sorts; administrations of the mysteries; which all, being performed by them, became a bond to the people to be on a good understanding with them; so that, in a little while, even though liberty be granted us, no hope will remain that they, who are encompassed by so lasting a deceit, should be brought back again to the acknowledgment of the truth.”

 

(Please know the words above, except the poem, come from here. Thus he, the Exarch of Csesarea, made himself the servant of all. “My brother Dorotheus,” he writes to Peter of Alexandria in 377 a.d., ” distressed me by failing, as you report, in gentleness and mildness in his conversations with your excellency. I attribute this to the unkindness of the times.)

 
[The words below come from here, either found in the Syriac or ancient Syriac Documents, dated 154 a.d. and between 224 and 230 a.d. (believed to be Bardesan(es) by origination, and decry the notion of anything being directed at or fanning the flames of hatred (today). This section, found here, contains this reference,”Again we find this language in the days of the Roman emperors not only in Palmyra1️⃣, but spread also in the whole country of the Nabatheans, and down to almost Medina; here again beyond its native limits, as the official written language.”]

“You must distinctly understand(68) that, in all cases in which Nature is disturbed from its direct course, its disturbance comes by reason of Fate; and this happens because the Chiefs(69) and Governors, with whom rests that agency of change(70) which is called Nativity, are opposed to one another. Some of them, which are called Dexter, are those which help Nature, and add to its predominance,(71) whenever the procession is favourable to them, and they stand in those regions of the zodiac which are in the ascendant, in their own portions.(72) Those, on the contrary, which are called Sinister are evil, and whenever they in their turn are in possession of the ascendant they act in opposition to Nature; and not on men only do they inflict harm, but at times on animals also, and trees, and fruits, and the produce of the year, and fountains of water, and, in short, on everything that is comprised within Nature, which is under their government.

 

praying-santa

Yes… even Santa prays. Santa was based on someone real, not just a commercialized tool, and his name was St. Nicholas (www.stnicholascenter.org/pages/who-is-st-nicholas/ )

 

“But, when God wills them, all things are possible, and they may take place without hindrance: for there is nothing that can stay that Great and Holy Will. And at the establishment of that new world all evil commotions shall cease, and all rebellions terminate, and the foolish shall be convinced, and all deficiencies shall be filled up, and there shall be quietness and peace, through the gift of the Lord of all existing beings.”

 

the adoption–It is true that, compared with the new economy, the old was a state of minority and pupilage, and so far that of a bond-servant ( Galatians 4:1-3 ); yet, compared with the state of the surrounding heathen, the choice of Abraham and his seed was a real separation of them to be a Family of God ( Exodus 4:22 , Deuteronomy 32:6 , Isaiah 1:2 , Jeremiah 31:9 , Hosea 11:1 , Malachi 1:6 ).

 

To become adopted, all you have to do is believe in Him, Jesus Christ, for He is the Savior of the world, Emmanuel.

Romans 10:9 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/romans/10-9.html
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
[The two abstracts found below are found here, under #33.]

 

(5) What manner of persons ought “God’s elect” to be–in humility, when they remember that He hath saved them and called them, not according to their works, but according to His own purpose and grace, given them in Christ Jesus before the world began ( 2 Timothy 1:9 ); in thankfulness, for “Who maketh thee to differ, and what hast thou that thou didst not receive?” (7) Sincerity in religion, or a general desire to be saved, with assiduous efforts to do right, will prove fatal as a ground of confidence before God, if unaccompanied by implicit submission to His revealed method of salvation ( Romans 9:31-33 ).

 

Lazarus III

It is only God that could become man… giving His own life as a man, raise and live beyond this event- to die for our sins. Do “You” believe in His love for your own… for your own message to all mankind? Believe!

The ‘Gospel (Good News)’ of Jesus can only be realized when it is: heard, told, believed and acted upon. You will act upon it, won’t you? I pray you will. (D.V.) A Merry Christmas to all of you, 2016!

“Look to the rose of Sharon”

Tags

,

If a rose is a rose is rose… like most secular views seem to be today, then a god is a god is a god, right? It might appear to be accurate but therein is the view of mankind as a whole. Even William Shakespeare said this or, at least, it has been attributed to him and his writing…

 

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”

 

The quote comes from a line in the play,”Romeo and Juliet,” and provides us with quite a few astonishing responses to what is implied or inferred. The two strongest being a sense of equality or is not love to be found more important than who is involved when it is found? In the play Juliet might have been trying to say,”What’s in a name.”

 

So, I pose this question to you (the reader), is one god no better than the next… framed in this line of thinking? This is the world view but sadly it is not God’s view… where I point out the difference between what we (may) think and what God has told us- this is the chasm to what humanity struggles with… what God says vs. what we think God says. See below…

 

Isaiah 46:9 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/isaiah/46-9.html
9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,

 

Psalm 102:21 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/psalms/102-21.html
21 To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;

 

Isaiah 45:19 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/isaiah/45-19.html
19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

 

Jeremiah 31:10 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/jeremiah/31-10.html
10 Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.

 

Exodus 9:14 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/exodus/9-14.html
14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.

 

So what is in a name, and I’d say all the difference between being Pavlovian or Machiavellian… wouldn’t you think so as well? To seek a right view of The living God we need to come to a ‘personal exodus’ to what we have thought or believed- in order to claim the right to become children of God. How do we do this, you might ask, and the answer is clearly put forth in scripture. See below…

 

John 1:12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—

Russ

 

P.S. For every religion… man or God has created there is a list of things to do or not to do. There is one exception… found in Christianity, the emphasis is placed not on what humanity needs to do but on what God has already done. Look to John 3:16 for such proof.

“Love without end”

The moon turned strange, at an odd slant,
it almost looks as though it is smiling
but there are none of the signs of it
being friendly, no Cheshire cat filing
his claws here or regard for now dried
blood on them, and he turns to face
the world, and grinning… the blank
and empty stare tells of it’s disgrace,
here is found but a mockery to love…
restoration of hope is not seen, trait
of God alone, mercy is then merciful
and found in abundance… dinner plate
come from eternal bounty… the breath
of the divine is to (now) fill the soul,
spoken of in humility, from the very
beginning of time without end the goal.

 
Revelation 12:7 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/revelation/12-7.html
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

 
[Below is found in abstract(s) here, for Rev 12:7… looking for Matthew Henry Commentary near the bottom, and those abstracts being placed together.]

 
The seat of this war was in heaven; in the church of Christ, the kingdom of heaven on earth. The parties were Christ, the great Angel of the covenant, and his faithful followers; and Satan and his instruments. The strength of the church is in having the Lord Jesus for the Captain of their salvation. As drawing with his tail a third part of the stars in heaven, and casting them down to the earth; persecuting and seducing the ministers and teachers. As watchful to crush the Christian religion; but in spite of the opposition of enemies, the church brought forth a manly issue of true and faithful professors, in whom Christ was truly formed anew; even the mystery of Christ, that Son of God who should rule the nations, and in whose right his members partake the same glory. This blessed offspring was protected of God. Being faithful to God and Christ, in doctrine, worship, and practice, exposes to the rage of Satan; and will do so till the last enemy shall be destroyed.

 
Psalm 55:18 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/psalms/55-18.html
18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.

 
Isaiah 28:6 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/isaiah/28-6.html
6 And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.

 
[From Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible, comes this below, for Isaiah 28, just click the compare button (tab) and go to near the bottom of the page.]

 
make haste–flee in hasty alarm; but the Septuagint has “be ashamed”; so Romans 9:33 , and 1 Peter 2:6 , “be confounded,” substantially the same idea; he who rests on Him shall not have the shame of disappointment, nor flee in sudden panic (see Isaiah 30:15 , 32:17 ).

 

17. line–the measuring-line of the plummet. HORSLEY translates, “I will appoint judgment for the rule, and justice for the plummet.” As the corner-stone stands most perpendicular and exactly proportioned, so Jehovah, while holding out grace to believers in the Foundation-stone, will judge the scoffers ( Isaiah 28:15 ) according to the exact justice of the law (compare James 2:13 ).

 

hail–divine judgment ( Isaiah 30:30 , 32:19 ).

 

This world sees a coming of a kingdom of god but it is not the universal Kingdom of Jehovah- the God of Abraham. See more here.

Revelation 22:9 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/revelation/22-9.html
9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

 
[Below an abstract, from here… on Rev 22:9, taken from Commentary Critical and Explanatory… near the bottom of the page.]

 
The punishment of sin is sin, the reward of holiness is holiness. Eternal punishment is not so much an arbitrary law, as a result necessarily following in the very nature of things, as the fruit results from the bud. No worse punishment can God lay on ungodly men than to give them up to themselves. The solemn lesson derivable from this verse is, Be converted now in the short time left ( Revelation 22:10 , end) before “I come” ( Revelation 22:7 Revelation 22:12 ), or else you must remain unconverted for ever; sin in the eternal world will be left to its own natural consequences; holiness in germ will there develop itself into perfect holiness, which is happiness.

 
The Four Gospels and what they mean to us and for us, especially this time of year (for Christmas, 2016).

 
[Found in the New Testament is Ephesians 6 and a means, provided by God (Jehovah Jireh) of protection for believers.]

A Merry Christmas to all of you… believer and non-believer alike. (D.V.)

“Worthy?”©

, , ,

A version… aversion to reality…
substitute the desire over truth,
this is when an adaptation to light
becomes the light, contrasting worth
as truth… as proof of enlightenment
attained, similarity will be assumed
as the rendering is accepted, in the
turning away from God and consumed,
worth is then the value sought… no
longer contained but self-serving in
its nature… now more demanding by
its hate, lowered from shame’s chagrin,
if deserved to gain attention… this a
false sense of pride and arrogance
but those taught and trained will soon
ensnare the folly of dignity’s durance¹,
and they will not spare the life of any
in their path to harbor indifference or
disbelief, faithful seeds of destruction
embellished by lies none can ignore.

 
1… durance, imprisonment or confinement… (and I’d add) denied heaven.

 

We too can be found imprisoned in our own thoughts, beliefs, and not realize it until it is to late. It is better to find the truth than believe a lie… maintaining a false hope and false expectation. The living God of the Hebrews died for your sins, the sinful state we have all been born into, that you might be spared from hell itself. Hell was created to house those kicked out of heaven but will hold all choosing to worship the fallen one (also)- the brightest of all the angelic beings. He was called,”the Father of lies,” and still is to this day and age- a thief of souls. In him is found nothing but deceit and deception, false hope and promises… for to gain the minds of people and be worshiped as a god is his goal. Salvation comes to humanity by Jesus Christ alone… taking away the sins of the world. Prepare yourselves and repent!

 

worthy-i

There is no other God that has ever left the heavenly spaces to come to Earth and take on human form, to die to save us individually, and Abraham walked with Him as his personal friend. You can do the same thing Abraham did… obtain a ‘personal relationship’ with the almighty God yourself. Seek Him while we still have time to be in His grace and not under His wrath to come, won’t you?

 

Messiah II

The choice is yours… and affects your eternal status- with or without God in your presence!

When can a life be unaffected by a fire that’s shared
or a belief as told when personal bias is put aside?
If there is any commonality, and there is, then there
is where it is seen being enslaved by thoughts abide,
for by bribe is by lie… is less than honest when stealing
glory from the living God, the God become man to die
for all humanity, there is no neutrality, and when you
abstain from Him as God is when He refuses to try
us as His own for our lack of belief… lack of regard
for what was done on our behalf, for the sake of life
and all that would claim to know life as their sole own…
where we open the door to evil and address our strife.

 

When a view of something, not our own, is perceived to be what we imagine it to be is when the very nature of our vision is obscured by this supposed bias- this belief that we have it right. It has been said, assumption makes an ass out of all of us. The excerpt (abstract) below is fraught with misleading ‘assumptions’ and they are detrimental to sound belief. The reference comes from the book, entitled,”The Future of Islam,” by Wilfrid Scawen Blunt.

 

british-assumptions-about-muslims

British assumptions about Muslims, 1882.

 
Knowing there are many boundaries that seek to divide us from one another… in Christianity there is one that died for all. There is no need to kill or harm someone that does not believe as you… this has never been a spiritual need but a desire of a heart unwilling to share another belief of its importance. Free will has always been God’s will for mankind, and faith is fulfilled in the belief of God by one’s choosing to follow Him- for who He is… God. There has never a God willing to die for us, to resurrect from the dead… proving life exists beyond the grave. We will be with Him or against Him by the choice we make. Brothers and Sisters are we all… the image of God’s own hand, wed who you will and taste the Lord’s truth above thoughts of mortal men.

We can not be any less than
forgiving one for their mistakes…
to see as equals, in our love
of God, means there are no fakes,
to see as the victims of Charleston
and their families touched by hate,
to forgive the one that did such harm…
to go beyond what some call fate,
this door of hardness comes at
times with a smile so soft and sweet,
stay strong in God’s love… it is His
love that wraps us up before we meet
Him face to face, a just God… a holy
God, Jesus Christ is whom we serve,
this is the God that pardons all man’s
sins… not to receive what we deserve.

 

There is no one exempt: Muslim or Christian, Black or White, Male or Female… for Jesus did die to deliver you from hell or hellish thoughts here. All mankind are Brothers and Sisters… each and every one. We should be this and do this each and every day. We have but to confess our sins, accept Jesus Christ for who He said He was, is and will be for all eternity- God incarnate. No one coming after Him will do more for humanity and unless this truth is realized, and acted upon, there is no hope for man without His saving blood [grace] covering you from the gaze of the holy God of Israel. I would be less than truthful if I did not tell you, be you from Syria or the Sudan, Hong Kong or Thailand, San Francisco or Brazil.

 

 

 

Please note: although Jerusalem is mentioned over eight hundred times in the Bible, the returning of Jesus is mentioned (or referred to) one thousand eight hundred and forty five times. If the predictions made about Jesus (prophecy) coming the first time have been proven to be accurate [100%], then the predictions of His second coming will be equally accurate and will come to pass. Are you sure you will be joyful when He returns- strive to seek Him while there is still time. Pray for all of humanity… as this is the will of God- that none should perish!

 

masks-ii

I can not think of one good reason for any one of any faith to do this to one claimed as Sister… or Brother, born into the very image of God are we all. Pray with love for forgiveness.

With Jerusalem mentioned more than 8 hundred
times in the Bible, we see it holds an importance
of: location, the authority of God to declare her as
His own and the occurrence not happenstance,
and we see, today, the PA (Palestinian Authority)
would try to usurp Jewish history, as Israel’s own…
eradicate 3 thousand years of her way, Israel,
to have a world body deny her as God’s sown,
attended by aid to cause of delusion and wry
glory of life, momentarily spared, but not saved,
this is when the psycho-babble of sycophants is
declared to sustain this life but it is to the paved
road so wide as to lure any and all concerned so…
with no life at all, not even considering one’s soul,
this is where the sacred path… the way to God is
bypassed, Jesus is the Hebrew God, not a foal
for a war horse… not to deceive the masses as
some would be the god of all I see, to perceive…
and tell more lies in the end than in the garden
with one, the fall, no faith came for men to believe.

 

[Please Note: this is one instance where political issues in the US infringe upon matters of religious beliefs. Due to the US election being so important to our faith… it is one instance where I will post such information (coming from the US) here. I firmly believe this country is (first) ‘a Christian Nation’ and the (supposed) separation between ‘church and state (as in a theocracy and the US is not a theocracy¹)’ has been both cause for disrespect and perceived to be an imposition to those against it- against Christianity and against Jesus Christ.

 

When citizens are subjected to: forced taxation to pay for abortion (Planned Parenthood) without regard to their beliefs or values, thoughts on ‘being in favor of allies’ but shuns Israel (openly), representatives of us and the US (acting as agents for outside International concerns… coming from the OIC [Organization of Islamic Cooperation] to supersede ‘Human Rights’ established by the UN for Shariah Law… the later came in to Irvine, Texas, under President Obama- and there is no form of ‘togetherness’ found when basic human rights are denied to anyone. Free will has always been God’s choice for mankind to implement on their own but it has been altered by man against mankind for: power, economic gain or striving to gain supremacy- almost back to the,”Master of all I survey,” mentality. I must add the later thought has been attributed to William Cowper… an individual that Martin Luther King Jr. often referred to. Here is a link to show Hillary has supported (aided) effort toward a theocracy (under the OIC) and that not being her own (?). You can also find out more here.]

1theocracy: If one was truly to be the example… the historic example of a working theocracy has been Israel, first and foremost, and will be the one that shall last in its perpetual state… eternal.

Persecution today I

No human being should be forced to do anything… they don’t want to! Is this Hillary’s togetherness?

Persecution IV

So you say crimes against children are wrong… and sit silent or you would still vote for Hillary!

 

The view expressed below is one, in my view, of how God sees (rightly) the laws of a religious nature shall be implemented by His people.

 
As to how Israel viewed Judicial Law, where the US has derived at its own (and other Western cultures as well)… stemming from theirs, is a very brief abstract from this link below.

 
This was the form of Divine law which, under the dominion of God, as the Supreme Magistrate, directed the policy of the Jewish nation, and hence, was binding only on them, not on other peoples.

 

Is this a 'common' perception?

When an atheist can get it right… why can’t we?

 

This did change after the veil in the Temple was rent in two… torn from top to bottom, and ‘the way’ was cleared for all mankind (an open invitation to the gentiles) to accept God, the living God, as their own.

Right path!

The path to heaven is found on a one way street!

humanity-iv

 

What did God intend for us by saying “We?”
All humanity is called (then) of a sense… family!
God has declared by promise, through the truth
of the Abrahamic Covenant, man’s view as a homily¹,
thus shall the people of Israel be called,”the
people of God,” and will not God protect His own?
Of course but after Jesus, The Messiah, gave His
life for all mankind… now call upon Him, not disown,
and come to know the God of the universe is a
personal God… He walked with Abraham so close…
so close as to know him and his seed would fill
the world, as the grains of sandy beach, suppose
you too would find such a closeness as to be
cared for as if you, yourself, are lost in your mind,
and might even think you were right… to dislike
another… and acted as if you knew love but find
no love in your heart for: Israel (the very nation
of God), the Jews (God’s own chosen) or their fate,
the mind and heart acted on, with the action
we take or what we do, declare it to be hate.
Hate comes from a lack of love, found when
we are without God’s presence, for God is love
love cares for the hand that would harm you or
even kill you, Jesus said this here, not above.

 

1… Homily: a religious discourse that is intended primarily for spiritual edification rather than doctrinal instruction.

 

Matthew 5:44 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/matthew/5-44.html
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

 

How can one do to another, unless told by God Himself (heard directly or spoken to; which includes the word of God), what he, or her, would refuse to grasp by harming another… knowing the same will be done to them… by God Himself.

 

[This is from, in abstract. a Sermon on Important Subjects (found here)… see below.]

 
Have you cried to God in earnest prayer, and used all means for that end? If not, it is plain you are an enemy to God, and love to continue so: you hate him, and practically insist upon it you do right. Nor can you pretend ignorance in this case; for your own conscience tells you, it is your duty to love God.

 

If it is the duty of man to love God then it is also the duty of man to love his Brother and Sister, humanity, since we are all found to be in the image of The Creator God. Can we not look to the truth of this statement… before doing what we perceive to be right- only to realize we have been wrong all along?

[This is what God desires most from us: worship, relationship, understanding the relationship and obedience. See the telling of the scripture below found here.]

 
Genesis 17:22 And he left off talking with him, and God went up from Abraham.

 

Isaiah 3:9 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/isaiah/3-9.html
9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

 

Isaiah 41:22 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/isaiah/41-22.html
22 Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.

 

Isaiah 44:7 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/isaiah/44-7.html
7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them.

 

Jeremiah 31:10 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/jeremiah/31-10.html
10 Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.

 

1 John 1:5 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/1-john/1-5.html
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

 

Light breaks the darkness!

It is light that breaks the darkness!

 

Please come to a realization here, about the end times prophecies, everything predicted points to the coming of the “Day Of The Lord (Yahweh).” This will be the second coming, not like when He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey but as its rightful King- claiming back what was taken.

 

I would also point to actions taken at the UN (recently), initiated by the Palestinian Authority (2015) with a UNESCO campaign, yesterday, October 13th, 2016, the Temple Mount and Western Wall were reclassified Muslim, not Jewish, by UN Resolution. See the article for yourself here, and pray for those in Israel today.
