Take it with a grain of salt

salt

All the adds, promises, health claims, advice on the net are to be   taken   with a grain of salt ? “(With) a grain of salt”, (or “a pinch of salt”) is an idiom of the English language, which means to view something with skepticism or not to interpret something literally. Meaning to take something lightly. In Latin the word for salt is the same as the word for wisdom One should to take into consideration the source of the information as possibly unreliable or prone to exaggeration and therefore the information itself should be “seasoned” to adjust for that bias.

One needs to be cautious about believing the information he has received.

Before elections, all parties also do make a lot of promises. They are best taken with a grain of salt.

When one says,claims something is really good always check it .

“Fix your eyes upon Jesus ”.  Do not talk to your pastor and people you respect for their counsel, talk to God instead. God will lead  you to the  truth and help you to make a wise choice when we seek him in prayer.

People seem to trust in themselves, others but do tend to have a real problem putting faith especially in God.

Not related to the New Testament

WE

 

Many people claim the title of Christian without actually believing anything related to Jesus, the New Testament. The world may tell us that sexual  purity doesn’t matter, but God does care about it. The Bible speaks a lot on this subject, such as in 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5. The Bible calls us to reject the world’s approach to love and marriage.

Biblically speaking, lust is always presented as something negative. Lust is about desiring something that is not yours to have. Lust is unhealthy desire. Lust is destructive because acting on it always means violating God’s laws and other peoples rights. In the end, lust leads to our destruction.

Proverbs tells us that, “The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the treacherous are taken captive by their lust.” And Jesus said that to look at a woman lustfully is to commit adultery with her. Because lust is always negative, we need to learn to distinguish it from those desires that are appropriate and healthy. It is right for a husband and wife to desire one another sexually, but it is wrong to have this desire towards someone you are not married to. You are not entitled to the body of your boy/girlfriend until you have come into the covenant relationship of a sole marriage . Lust it is wrong also when these desires get distorted – when our desire for food becomes gluttony, or our desire for drink drunkenness, or our desire for sleep laziness.

The search for “the one” is often an idolatrous pursuit. If you are looking for someone else to complete you, to fill your life, to be the source of your contentedness, then you will be searching in vain your whole life. And you are placing an unreasonable expectation upon everyone with whom you develop a serious marriage. The “one-flesh” pronouncement by God in the garden of Eden gets lost in the mire of lust and violence. The Bible gives us a great definition and much advice regarding “Love”, There is no reference at all to a “soul mate”. The New Testament sees the woman-as-companion. God never instructs us to seek out a mate.

The most accurate definition of true love is found in John 15:13 ‘Husbands, love your wives’ (Ephesians 5:25) and ‘Husbands … be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect’ (1 Peter 3:7). Mark 10:11-12 tells us who is Biblically eligible for marriage. The book of Proverbs, a wealth of relationship knowledge, has us looking for responsible mates, and ones who know how to handle their money in 31:16. 31:30 informs us that godliness is superior to beauty or a handsome face. 17:19 tells us to shy away from those who quarrel, and 12:18 has us avoiding those with sharp tongues. Finally, 31:10-31 directs us toward the virtuous, for they their price is “far above rubies”.

Society has romanticized the notion of finding your soul mate. Too many people deduce that they didn’t find their “soul mate” after all.  So they seek excitement or solace in the arms of someone else, or they part ways and are once again involved in the quest to fulfill their fantasy of finding the one and only person on this entire planet, who will make them happy . Love is not an emotion; it’s a policy and a commitment that we choose to keep. The ancient world eben on Jesus’s day had a very distorted view of women, sex, and marriage. Prostitution was an essential part of Greek life. The Roman and Jewish ethics were no better. Judaism reverenced neither women nor marriage.

The lie that many are propagating, is that if you do the “right” things, or go to the “right” websites, and/pr believe the “right” verses, God will bring you your match.. no guarantees here.

Maybe you are young and impulsive. It may be those parts of oyur brains that are good at caution haven’t s been switched on yet. Or, in contrast, you may feel those parts keep setting off false alarms so often that you want to take the batteries out. Worse, you go looking for love in a world that is not just imperfect but actually broken, a place in part of selfishness, greed and betrayal. Worse above all still, some of the world’s evil comes out of our own hearts and spills into our relationships.

Always check if the person is a believer who fears God (Proverbs 31:30) and who is biblically eligible for marriage (Mark 10:11-12)? Do they live an upright life? (Proverbs 13:6, 20; 25:28) Are they peaceful, or quarrelsome? (Proverbs 17:19; 29:8) Is this person a hard worker? (Proverbs 13:4; 26:13-15) mpt lazt, not one with unrealistic, false expecations. When you have doubts, face them, don’t bury them.

Do not talk to your pastor and people you respect for their counsel. talk to God instead.God will lead us toward someone, and help us make a wise choice when we seek him in prayer. Seek God and not merely as a way to satisfy your own selfishness. “Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness…” Matthew 6:33, a Christian should not consider any marital union that would not feed this primary relationship with God. You’ll bring great misery into your life if you ignore this God’s help, advice. There are so many hidden land mines in deciding to marry someone such as do you really know well the other persons, or are they lying to you to make a good impression which too often happens.

Every marriage, even the happiest, and some are very happy, sits somewhere on a scale of imperfection. Marriage is incredibly hard work. Wives are called to submit to, respect, and serve their husbands.

The real danger for God’s people in pursuing a spouse is that we will “settle” for the world’s vision of self, love, marriage and even romance, rather than a vision of those things steeped in scripture and rooted in the love of Christ. Biblical love and marriage ask more of us than the world’s selfish pursuit of non-existent perfection. It is very possible to marry the wrong person.

For one thing, believers are commanded to not marry outside of the faith…that is they should not marry an unbeliever because God has said that we are not to be unequally yoked (2 Cor 6). Many have never followed this godly advice and have ended up in a marriage that God never intended for them to be in and heartaches, divorce that resulted. Christian are commanded to stay in the marriage until death do they part for we know that God hates divorce (Mal 2:16; Mark 10:7-9).

Genesis 2:20-25 “But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, ‘This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.’ Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.”

15 Drink water from your own cistern, And fresh water from your own well. 16 Should your springs be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets? 17 Let them be yours alone, And not for strangers with you. 18 Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice in the wife of your youth. 19 As a loving hind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; Be exhilarated always with her love (Proverbs 5:15-19).

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe that God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.”  ~ Colossians 3:14

What is Pornography?

Liberty

The word pornography is composed of two Greek words. The first is porne, meaning “harlot,” which is akin to the word pernanai, meaning “to sell.” The second word is graphein, meaning “to write.” In other words, pornography is literally “the writing of harlots.”
 .
The Greek word porne is used several times in the Bible. In one of these instances, the apostle Paul writes: Do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot [porne] is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. (1 Corinthians 6:15–20)
 .
Because of sin in the world (Rom. 3:23), sex has been misused and abused (Rom. 1:24-25). The three main categories of sin are the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2:16).
 .
“The light of the body is they eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matt. 6:22-23)
 .
Pornography is addictive (1 Corinthians 6:12; 2 Peter 2:19), and destructive (Proverbs 6:25-28; Ezekiel 20:30; Ephesians 4:19). Porn and erotica are sinful acts of the flesh. Lusting after other people in our minds, which is the essence of pornography, is offensive to God (Matthew 5:28).  The use of pornography is not restricted to men. 
 .
Pornography can be the first step on a very slippery slope of addiction,  ever-increasing wickedness and immorality (Romans 6:19). Joseph,  when confronted with temptation, ran away (Genesis 39:12; cf. 2 Timothy 2:22).   “I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman” (Job 31:1). “Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh” (Romans 13:14).
 .
Porn leads to decrease of one’s self esteem, next it leads to escalation and next to  desensitization.   Porn addiction, as it progresses, commonly  leads to a physical adulterous act with a real person.  In the shadowlands of pornographic imagery, all people exist solely for my pleasure.  Porn is obscene literature or art ”, offensive, lacks  value. It results in a distortion in thinking that weakens a Christian’s ability to relate, function, act godly. sees others only as a sexual object. Your mind is a battlefield .
 .
Ephesians :12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
 .
Hebrews 2:14  Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
 .
Jesus warned His disciples that whoever looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery in his heart (Matthew 5:27–28). 
 .
Each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full grown, brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from The Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. (James 1:14–17)
 .
Christians must make no provision for the flesh (Rom. 13:14).
 .
Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
 .
Revelation 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
 .
We choose what we allow to influence our hearts and our daily thoughts.
 .
Paul exhorts the church to “put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and . . . put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.”  Ephesians 4:22–24,
 .
When a group of Pharisees questioned Jesus on the ethics of divorce (Matt. 19:4–6), He articulated a basic standard for the human sexual experience: sexual union is to be heterosexual (“He made them male and female”), independent (“a man shall leave father and mother”), and monogamous (“one flesh”).   The benefits of a “one-flesh” union are confirmed elsewhere in Scripture. 
 .
Paul added that within the sanctity of a marriage, a monogamous and permanent commitment, husband and wife are to attend to each other’s sexual needs (1 Cor. 7:4–5) and reserve their sexual energies for each other, thus preserving the uniqueness of their bond and avoiding moral transgressions (1 Cor. 7:2).
.
A cursory look at Old and New Testament figures confirms the wisdom of monogamy and the chaos introduced by infidelity, polygamy, or loss of sexual control, all of which play key roles in some of the Bible’s greatest tragedies. Polygamy is not found or approved  in the New Testament.
 .
The Holy Spirit works in the lives of  Christians and empowers them to begin changing as their sinful burdens are released by the power of God’s forgiveness for their sins.
 .
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
 .
Jesus began His public ministry by announcing He had come, among other things, to set captives free (Luke 4:18); and Apostle Paul asserted that full liberty is what God has called us to, that Christian liberty should be protected, and that any bondage is to be avoided (Gal. 5:1, 13). Paul puts a great value on personal freedom and condemns anything that restricts or prohibits a person from reaching his or her God-given potential. Addiction, a dependence on a certain behavior or experience  is sinful.

Hell is a real place

00 life (5)

(Heb 9:27 KJV)  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Hell, the eternal Lake of Fire, “Gehenna”, burning with fire and brimstone, “where their worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched”.–The place where the wicked and damned Christ-rejecters suffer torment.–Mark 9:43-44 and Revelation 21:8, 14:9-11. Yes all those who do not believe in Jesus, upon the moment of death, are immediately tossed into this terrible Lake of Fire! That such a Hell exists, there can be no doubt! The term “hell” occurs 54 times in the Bible,

Deuteronomy 32:22: “For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.”
men.”

Revelation 20:12,15 says “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: And another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And if any man was not found written in the Book of Life, he was cast into the Lake of Fire.”

Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.: 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? Isaiah 14. 12

In Matthew chapter 23 Jesus was addressing the Pharisees. He called down “woes” upon them: “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!” because they shut up the kingdom of heaven (vs. 13), because they devour widows’ houses (vs. 14), because they make disciples for hell (vs. 15)

In Matthew 23, Jesus condemned the Scribes and Pharisees and told them that all of the righteous blood that they had shed would come on them. “Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt. Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?

Peter 2:4 speaks of hell’s location when speaking of the angels that sinned against God: “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment.” Hell is down, according to the Bible. Amos 9:2 says, “Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down.”

“And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.” (Luke 16:23-24) “But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.” (Mat. 5:22) “And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.” (James 3:6)

Jesus said “it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.” (Mat. 18:9)

As per Matthew 25:41, God originally created hell for “the devil and his angels.” In the very beginning, it was not God’s intention for any man to suffer the torments of sin, hell, separation from God but then man used his free will and chooses to follow the way of Satan even as per (Gen. 3). So men and women do  h choose freely to Go to hell as a result, even if one  claims he doe  not believe in Hell.

II Peter 3:7: “But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly

Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Rev. 21:8)

Hell is a real place for all those who reject God’s salvation through Jesus Christ

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

If you are unsaved, do refuse to accept Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life, it is you alone that have already forsaken God and rather now next Hell, the Lake of Fire will be your eternal home.

Although God alone is the Judge, this does not mean that only God judges

1Clown
.
(Isa 54:17 KJV) No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
.
Psalms 98: 8 Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together 9 Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
.
What Are the Restrictions on Judging?
.
Although Scripture shows that God expects, equips, and commands man to judge, there are stipulations that govern this decree.
.
We must not be hypocrites when judging others. God states that when we judge others for committing sins that we partake in, we are condemning ourselves. (Matthew 7:1-5; Luke 6:37-42; Romans 2:1-5; Romans 2:20-23) This is clearly depicted in God’s judgement of David for the killing of Uriah. The prophet Nathan approached David for judgement regarding a story of a rich man that had stolen from a poor man. Yet, after David pronounces his judgement, Nathan’s words were”Thou art the man…” (II Samuel 12:1-7) This is what God is warning us. We will be measured by the same yardstick with which we measure others.
.
We are also told not to judge according to appearances or by the flesh (John 7:24; John 8:15; James 2:1-4). This means that sound judgement cannot be based on what we see, hear, or think. Since God’s thoughts and ways are are higher than ours, He is not bound by our perceptions, opinions, or prejudices. This again is a confirmation that God alone is The Judge. Our judgements must therefore be based in His word in order for them to be true.
.
We are not to judge others regarding legalistic adherence to ordinances such as holyday (holiday) observances and what to eat or drink, for such are only matters of faith (Romans 14:1-23; I Corinthians 8:7-13; I Corinthians 10:28-33; Colossians 2:16-23). Scripture states that in Christ we have liberty which frees us from the law of sin and death (Luke 4:18; Romans 8:21; I Corinthians 10:29; II Corinthians 3:17; Galatians 2:4; Galatians 5:1, 13; James 1:25; James 2:12; I Peter 2:16; ).
.
This is the same liberty that allows Paul to say, “All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.” (I Corinthians 10:23) Although the Son has made us free, we can only walk in this liberty to the degree that we have faith in God. This is why we are told to be “fully persuaded in our own minds” because “whatever is not done in faith is sin.” (Romans 14:5, 23) If someone – whom the Scripture describes as having weaker faith – chooses to adhere to such ordinances, they are doing so as unto the Lord. To judge them is to place a stumbling block before them because you are attempting to get them to commit what in their minds is sin. (Romans 14:13; Romans 9:32) This is why we are warned, “But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to them that are weak.” (I Corinthians 8:9) Likewise, those who are walking in the liberty of Christ should not be judged by those who choose to adhere to such ordinances. As stated in I Corinthians 10:29-30, “Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man’s conscience? For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks?” Those who make judgments in these areas are mistaking matters of faith for matters of doctrine.
.
We should not judge anyone’s eternal destiny. Although we will judge the truth (in ourselves, in others and in doctrine) based on the Word of God, only God can bring about the consequences of His judgements: justification for the righteous and condemnation for the wicked (I Kings 8:32; II Chronicles 6:23). I Corinthians 4:3-5 states,”But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self. For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord. Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.”
.
Here Paul says that although he will be judged by his brethren, justification can only occur from the Lord and will only be known at Jesus’ second coming. God alone knows the end of the matter from the beginning.
.
The primary stipulation given for Christians regarding judging is that we are not to proclaim our own judgements (based on our opinions) but to pronounce the judgements of God (based on truth). Jesus serves as the best example in this manner. “I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” (John 5:30)
.
Here Jesus confirms that all true judgement comes from God alone, but He also sets forth the criteria for what constitutes just judgements. Jesus says that because He places His will in subjection to God the Father, He is able to hear God’s words and be sent by God to pronounce His judgements. Again in John 8:15-16 Jesus asserts that only judgements that come from God are true, “Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.”
.
We should not base judgements on malicious lies or evil misrepresentations. “Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?” (James 4:11-12)
.
To speak evil of in this Scripture is the Greek word Katalaleo which means to malign, vilify, or traduce. It means exposing someone to contempt or shame based on false witness. This is why James says that such judgements are actually judgements of the law, because false testimony is a perversion of the law. Obviously, we should not judge others under these conditions.
.
It should also be noted that these are the circumstances under which Jesus was judged by the religious leaders of His day (Matthew 26:59-66; Mark 14:55-64). They sought false witnesses by which they could judge Him for blasphemy. Further, we are warned that as Christians, we should expect to be subjected to these same “evil” judgements by the world. “Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.” (I Peter 3:16, also I Peter 2:12)
.
Why Are We To Judge?
.
According to the Bible, the act of judging righteously is a benefit to the individual Christian and to the body of believers as a whole. Judging helps to sanctify the individual believer, prepares us to do the work of God, protects us from heretical doctrine that jeopardizes our faith, makes us an effective witness for Christ, and is a demonstration of God’s grace to others.
.
Judge Ones’ Self
.
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” (John 17:17)
.
Judging ones’ self with the Word of God is a key part of the process of sanctification through which every believer proceeds. This is why we are told to examine ourselves to see if we be in the faith. (II Corinthians 13:5) This is not simply an act of casual reflection. God is charging us, “Judge yourself to see if you really are what you claim!” Does the fruit of our lives attest to the words of our lips?
.
Although we proclaim to be Christians, do our day-to-day lives line up to the Word of God? Christ has come in direct opposition to the god of this world, the Father of lies. To combat the lies, Jesus presents us with incorruptible Truth. It is only by submitting to this Truth that the Spirit of God can be a lamp unto our feet, searching out our souls and turning our stony hearts into hearts of flesh. (Psalms 119; Acts 26:18; Romans 15:16; Ephesians 5:26-27; I Corinthians 6:11; II Corinthians 3:3; I Thessalonians 5:23; II Thessalonians 2:13; I Peter 1:2, 22)
.
Sanctification is not a one time, immediate change that occurs when we accept Christ. It is a process of being cleansed through the washing of the water by the word whereby we can be transformed into the image of God as we walk in relationship with Him. It is this process of judging ones’ self that prompted David to cry out, “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalms 139:23-24)
.
As we judge our own selves in the light of God’s word we continue in the process of sanctification, which is the will of God for every Christian. “For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour.” (I Thessalonians 4:3-4) In fact, the Apostle Paul said that if we would simply judge ourselves, we will not be condemned when God judges us. “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.” (I Corinthians 11:31-32)
.
Not only does judging one’s self keep you in a place of being sanctified by God, it is only then that we are made fit for the Master’s use. “If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.” (II Timothy 2:21)
.
“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.”
.
First, this Scripture does not say to simply ark those who cause divisions or offenses (although this is what many who will say not to judge would like us to believe). It says to mark those who cause divisions or offenses by espousing doctrine that is contrary to Scripture. This is an important distinction because it implies that there are divisions or offenses that are not contrary to Scripture. In fact, Scripture itself can be such a division or offense. We are told that the Word of God is a sword dividing the wheat from the chaff, both within the inner being of an individual and between individuals. (Ephesians 6:17; Hebrews 4:12; Matthew 10:34-36) Further, both the written and the incarnate Word of God are referred to as a rock of offense (Romans 9:33; I Peter 2:7-8)
.
Every Christian needs to settle in their minds that the Word of God will be considered divisive and offensive by those who rebel against God. If you have determined that you will not “judge” so as to avoid these accusations, then you have essentially chosen not to be a witness for Christ.
.
I Timothy 4:16 also states that it is not only important to take heed to the doctrine but to continue in it. This is precisely the type of problem that the Apostle Paul was addressing in Galatians 1:6-7, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.” We are further warned that in the last days these doctrines of devils will be more prevalent and persuasive than ever, even to the point of deceiving the elect of God – if it were possible to do so. (Matthew 10:11; Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; II Thessalonians 2:3; I Timothy 4:1-5; II Timothy 4:3-4)
.
Lastly, I Timothy 4:16 reveals that by taking heed for and continuing in sound doctrine we will not only see salvation ourselves, but so will those to whom we witness. Conversely, as supported in II John 1:9-11, not continuing in sound doctrine results in us believing and spreading a perverted gospel that is powerless to save.
.
While perhaps not verbatim, the above sentiments are often expressed when the subject of judging one another is raised. Yet these views are not only ludicrous, Scripture directly refutes such claims.
.
Do You Not Judge Them That Are Within?
.
As Christians, we are not only engrafted into the family of God, but we are made a part of a spiritual family of brothers and sisters with whom we can fellowship, learn, share, and grow in the faith. We have been birthed into a body of believers who can encourage, strengthen, support, and yes even admonish each other when necessary. “And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.” (Romans 15:14) Webster’s defines admonish as “to express warning or disapproval to especially in a gentle, earnest, or solicitous manner.” Although some in the church would say that we should not even do that, there are Scriptures that show this as one of the responsibilities of the church. (Colossians 3:16; I Thessalonians 5:12; Acts 27:9)
.
In fact, we are specifically told to admonish and rebuke those brethren who may be in error (Titus 1:13; Titus 2:15; Titus 3:10; Ephesians 5:11; Colossians 3:16; I Corinthians 4:14; 1 Tim. 3:16-4:2; II Timothy 4:2). “But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.” (II Thessalonians 3:13-15)
.
The Bible even shows that it is sometimes necessary to specifically name those who are erring in the faith in order to protect others whom they may influence. “But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already: and overthrow the faith of some.” (II Timothy 2:16-Also I Timothy 1:19-20; I Timothy 5:20-21; II Timothy 4:10; Galatians 2: 11-14; II Timothy 4: 14-15; III John 1:9)
.
When a brother or sister is in error, it is an extension of God’s grace and mercy to have another member of the Body provide correction. This gives the one in error an opportunity to repent and it serves as a witness for others in the faith. Letting a brother or sister continue in error is the most unloving and self-righteous act, because it allows them to continue in something that may result in them falling away from the Lord. Our fellowship with each other is but one of the ways in which God helps to steer us in the right direction when we go astray.
.
We know from Scripture that God is the Judge of all (Genesis 18:25; Judges 11:27; I Samuel 2:10 Psalms 50:6; Psalms 96:13; Psalms 98:9; Isaiah 3:13; Isaiah 33:22; Jeremiah 11:20; Ezekiel 18:30; Ezekiel 33:20; Hebrews 12:23; I Peter 1:17; Matthew 12:27). God is set in position as our Judge because He is all-knowing, He is Truth. As such God’s judgements are righteous and true (John 8:26; Romans 11:33; Revelation 16:7; Revelation 19:2).
.
Although God alone is the Judge, this does not mean that only God judges. In fact, the Word of God says that God enables man to judge, commands man to judge, and is pleased with those who seek to judge righteously.
.
Scriptures clearly show that throughout time God has imparted to man the authority to judge (Leviticus 19:15; Deuteronomy 1:16; Deuteronomy 16:18; Judges 2:16-19; II Chronicles 19:5; Ezra 7:25; Isaiah 1:17; Ezekiel 23:45; John 7:24; Romans 2:27; I Corinthians 2:15; I Corinthians 6:). In Zechariah 3:7 God states that He gives those who obey Him the authority to judge, “Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by.” There are also additional references in Scripture to this process of judging that may not specifically use the word judge. For example, in the original languages, the words translated as judge in Scripture are also translated examine, search, discern, ask, question, contend, esteem, and determine.
.
In the Old Testament, God specifically identified those who were set in positions as Judges over His people as chronicled in the Book of Judges. We also see that one responsibility of the prophets was to declare God’s judgment to the people (Judges 4:4; II Samuel 12:1-12; Micah 3:1-8; Malachi 4:4; Hosea 6:5). In Ezra 7:25, it states that those who judge serve two purposes: 1). To judge those who know the law; and 2). To teach the law to those who do not know.
.
Not Everyone Who Says “Lord, Lord” Is Your Brother
.
The Word of God continually warns about the presence of false prophets in the world. Even more disarming, Scripture tells us that these deceivers will be mixed in with the church itself. (Matthew 13:24-40; Acts 20:29-31; II Timothy 2:20-21; II Timothy 4:3; II Timothy 3:13; Matthew 7:15; Matthew 24:11, 24; Mark 13:22; II Corinthians 11:4; Philippians 3:18-19; Galatians 2:4; II Peter 2:1) “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” (II Corinthians 11:13-15) God is telling us that there are ministers of Satan in the church who are actually transformed so that they appear as ministers of righteousness! We are even told that some of these false ministers will have Satanic power to perform supernatural signs, wonders, healings, and other miraculous events. (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; II Thessalonians 2:9).Throughout Scripture, God warns us about these false prophets, false brethren, false apostles, etc. Is His direction for us to accept these individuals without question in a show of love?
.
No. God is no fool and He knows that the intent of these individuals is to pull you out of the faith. (II Peter 2:1-22) The end times, we are told, will be specifically marked by a great apostasy as people are drawn away after false gospels. As a result, God commands us to judge whether they in fact are members of the Body of Christ, discern the signs, try the spirits, examine the fruit and be purged from these! (I Corinthians 5:7; II Corinthians 6:14-17; Ephesians 5:11; I Timothy 6:5; II Timothy 2:21; II Thessalonians 3:6; Titus 3:10) How do we identify false brethren? Because they preach and live a gospel that is a perversion of the Word of God. (Isaiah 8:20)
.
Scripture not only tells us how to identify the false, but it shows us how to recognize the true Body of Christ? We know them by their fruit. (Matthew 7:16-20; Matthew 12:33; Matthew 13:23; Matthew 21:19-43; Mark 4:8, 20; Luke 6:44; Luke 8:15; John 15:1-16; Galatians 5:22; Ephesians 5:9-11; Colossians 1:10)
.
Judging Others  ” Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
.
(I John 4:1)Everyone who claims to be a minister or even a Christian must be believed by virtue of their confession. As brothers and sisters in the Lord, we must not question or judge one another because God alone is our judge. If someone is in error, it is not for us to point it out. After all, no one has it all right and God will correct them if they are wrong. To judge another person is not only unloving, but is against Scripture.
.
“Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.” (I Timothy 4:16)In the above Scripture, we are warned to “take heed” for not only our own selves but for the doctrine. In other words, God is saying to pay attention to, watch out for, take care of the doctrine. Why? Because not all doctrine is sound doctrine.
.
In fact, we are told specifically that devils also have doctrines. (I Timothy 4:1; Revelation 2:14-15; Revelation 2:24) It is precisely because there are these other “gospels” that we are warned to hold fast to what was given to us originally. (II Corinthians 11:4; Galatians 1:6-7;Titus 1:9; II Peter 3:1-13; I Timothy 1:6-7; Romans 6:17; Acts 2:42; Revelation 3:3) Yet, the only way that we can hold fast to the Gospel is if we can discern or judge between the true and the false. (Hebrews 5:13-14)
.
Once again, the Word of God is presented as the standard for such an evaluation (Romans 6:17; Romans 16:17; II Thessalonians 2:15; I Timothy 1:3; II Timothy 1:13; II Timothy 3:13-17; II Timothy 4:2; II Peter 3:1-13; II John 1:10; Titus 1:9; Matthew 15:3-6). Why is judging doctrine so important? Because there are doctrines that can jeopardize your faith and even your salvation. “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” (II John 1:9-11)
.
Judge Doctrine Today, the judging of doctrine is predominately taking one of two extremes. Many refuse to judge anything for fear of being called divisive. Still others cause senseless disputations by making everything a matter of doctrine; judging others in legalistic areas that are not germane to salvation. However, Romans 16:17 makes it clear not only what constitutes a division, but how to treat those who cause them.
.
Scripture also shows that God considers the exercise of judgment to be evidence of our seeking truth (Jeremiah 5:1). The fact that the desire to judge righteously is highly esteemed by God is clearly illustrated in I Kings 3:9-13. In verse 9, King Solomon asks, “Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?” We see here that Solomon asked God for discernment to judge between good and bad. This request not only pleased the Lord, but God blessed Solomon greatly for asking for the wisdom to judge.
.
In the New Testament, we continue to see that God expects us to exercise judgment. Jesus Himself criticized the Pharisees for being unable to judge the spiritual things of God and the importance of judging spiritual matters continued to be stressed throughout His disciples’ ministries (Matthew 16:3; Luke 12:56-57; John 7:24; Acts 4:19; I Corinthians 2:15; I Corinthians 5:3; I Corinthians 6:2-5; I Corinthians 10:15; I Corinthians 14:29; Hebrews 5:14). Further, we are told that it is to our shame if there is none among us who can judge the things of God. God also states that judgment is considered one of the weightier aspects of God’s law, even more than offerings (Matthew 23:23; Luke 11:14).
.
When citing God’s “command” not to judge, people often refer to Matthew 7:1, however, let’s look at the complete Scripture in context. “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.” (Matthew 7:1-5)
.
Jesus clearly says do not judge so that you will not be judged, but to whom is He speaking? He identifies His audience in verse 5 with the words “Thou hypocrite.” Jesus is not forbidding Christians to judge (unless He is calling every Christian a hypocrite). He is warning that we will be held accountable for what we know. In other words, if we know enough about sinful behavior to tell others that it is wrong, then we have no excuse as to why that sin would be present in our lives. This is consistent with Paul’s advice in I Corinthians 11:31-32 that we judge ourselves first so that we will not be judged.
.
As Jesus says in Matthew 7:5  we should cast the beam out of our own eye and then we are in position to point out the fault to others.

Beware of False Prophets, False Teachers, False Christians, False persons

demons
The Apostle Paul warned us: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; “And they shall turn away their ears from the truth” (2 Tim. 4:3–4).

“That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive” (Eph. 4:11–14).

Jesus cautioned several times that prior to His Second Coming, “many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many” (Matt. 24:11

I do not have to go far  to encounter the false ones,  as I see at least 1/3 immediately in the net even claiming to be Christians and why do they teach the lies? There are many reasons.It would have been unthinkable early in my Christian life to think even and  never mind face the fact that most pastors, evangelical ones are seriously inadequate, never mind adulterers, fornicators, child abusers even  now too. In reality now there is noting good in man,  God alone is good

Some things still shock me, disgust me. Yes there are all sorts of unacceptable personal abuses, slanders, violent persecutions taking place today. In and even out of the Christian Church.    https://postedat.wordpress.com/2019/02/13/the-reality-2/

Ecclesiastes 7:20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

Romans 3 – 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one’

2 Peter 2 -14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:

Matthew 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

Mark 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

John 6: 63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

1 Corinthians 13″3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Why do so many persons do tell lies

Telling the truth feels like giving up control. The truth can be “inconvenient” because it might make them face the realities.

It’s not a lie to them. The repetitive liars feel so much pressure in the moment that their memory,grasps becomes simply unreliable.

They want it to be true. The liar might want their lie to be true , they hope by lying they can make it so or they don’t want to hear bad news

They don’t want to admit to their own failings, Of which there are plenty.

They lie to us to maintain supposedly the others shiny view of them. Lies and liars are still found out

They are tempted to say whatever they need to try to impress you, even if it is a lie. Many times, a person will lie because of pride. They use it for nothing more than a tool to create a favorable image of themselves. This leads to exaggeration, which is a form of lying. Often people will create fascinating, yet completely false, stories to improve their image.

Some tell lies when they are afraid. People can be so afraid of what might happen if they told the truth. Maybe they have done something wrong and are afraid of the consequences of their actions, so they lie to cover up.

Some tell Lies as an act of aggression: “This is when they deliberately lie to harm someone else, for many reasons most false ones.

Liars tell Lies to maintain self-esteem: “People with low self-esteem often experience a sense of failure and inferiority because their abilities  and accomplishments fall short of their personal expectations for themselves,” People lie to inflate their image

Most preachers today who sell the gospel for money tend to be still false themselves too. Neither Jesus Christ, His apostles, nor any early Church Christians sold any portion of the Gospel to others, rather they clearly gave freely to all others in need..

Mat 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat. 11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence. 12 And when ye come into an house, salute it. 13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

(Jer 6:27 KJV) I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try their way. 28 They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters. 29 The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away. 30 Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the LORD hath rejected them

.
We deceive other people because we think it serves our purposes in some way. And it’s easy! Lying may seem simple and harmless at first, but just like any addiction, you’ll soon find yourself trapped and entangled more than you could have ever imagined. But what we also also need to understand is how even our best instincts,desires can, wittingly or unwittingly, make us targets for deceit. While maybe everybody lies at some point, some are habitual liars, few understand how destructive it can be, why we do it, and how to stop it.

Lying become a dangerous cycle to fall into. Lying can have such destructive and harmful consequences to both the liar and the one being lied to. We tend to eventually believe our own lies. Lying becomes an addiction.

.
NOBODY really wants to be friends with a liar because liars can’t be trusted and they hurt other people with their lies…

When you’re honest, you can feel at peace. You feel good about yourself and don’t carry the burden of guilt. Lying is extremely stressful. Even when it’s hard, telling the truth always has the better outcome than a bunch of lies.

Luke 6:46 Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not [practice] what I tell you?
.
God still judges you not just by what you profess to believe but also by what you do
.
Most people still do put too much trust on who is delivering the supposedly Biblical message without reading it for themselves.
.

Revelation 3:9 “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.”

.

The false teacher mix a bit of the lies together with the truth of God’s words to make it un-detectable. It is important to read and study the Holy Scriptures, firstly the New testament too,  to understand the Word of God and keep it stored in your heart so that you would not be deceived. You will then be able to discern if what is coming out their mouths is in alignment with God’s Word, if it is not, then it is false teaching. Do not just rely on what your spiritual leaders or anyone (including myself) is telling you, read it for yourselves. If you do not read humbly, prayerfully the Word of God you will not know Jesus Christ, the God. You will also lack the knowledge of the Word and become vulnerable to the many  lies being preached today. But most importantly you will lack the close relationship with Jesus Christ, His holy Spirit  that He so greatly desires and you will still go to hell as a direct result.

John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Jesus came to save all Jews as well

messianc-3

Dual Covenant Theology teaches that the Jewish People have a separate path to God through the Mosaic and Abrahamic Covenants. This is false.
 .
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16,
 .
Besides the annual holidays, there are various distinctive lifestyle events that characterize the lives of most Jewish people. Including…
Circumcision of sons on the eighth day. The accompanying ceremony is called brit milah.
Bar mitzvah (for boys) and bat mitzvah (for girls—not traditional). The coming of age ceremony at age 13. Generally consists of a synagogue service followed by an extended and elaborate reception with full meal.
Jewish weddings are typically characterized by the ceremony under a canopy (the chuppah, rhymes with “look, a wedding!” and the “ch” is pronounced gutterally as in German) and the smashing of a glass wrapped in a cloth to symbolize the destruction of the Temple.
 .
Whether or not a Jewish person adheres to some form of Judaism, his or her Jewishness is a way of life to be lived out in varying degrees. Jews do not speak of “salvation,” for there is nothing to be saved from. If there is a God, then Jewish people already have a relationship with Him. Jesus is superfluous for Jews.
 .
Jesus is the Messiah that the Jews had been anticipating for centuries ( Luke 2:25; 3:15) The Messiah was to be a “light for the Gentiles” (Isaiah 42:6). The Jews were acquainted with many of the prophecies about the Messiah, Christ, the chosen or “anointed one” as the word means in Greek. In the Greek language in which the New Testament was written, Christos ( Christ in English) has the same meaning as the Hebrew word Mashiach ( Messiah in English) — “anointed one,” signifying one who was specially chosen by God
 .
.“And many of the people ( Jews ) believed in Him, and said, ‘When the Christ [Messiah] comes, will He do more signs than these which this Man has done?’” (John 7:31).
 .
Jesus came to save everybody (1 John 2:2). Jesus Christ is God Himself (John 1:1). Jesus died on the cross as the payment for all our sins, and He rose from death in resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:3–4). Jesus said He was the Good Shepherd, and He predicted that His flock would be greatly expanded: “I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd” (John 10:16).
 .
The Jews had a priority for Salvation over Gentiles as the past chosen people of God. All salvation is salvation through God’s covenant with Abraham!
 .
In Genesis 12, God chooses Abraham and his descendants freely from all the peoples of the world to bless with his covenant and promise. Nehemiah 9:7 says, “God . . . chose Abram, and brought him out from Ur of the Chaldees.” Then Deuteronomy 14:2 says about the whole Jewish people, “The LORD has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.” And Amos 3:2 says, “You only have I chosen among all the families of the earth.” And here in Romans 11:28-29, Paul says, “From the standpoint of the gospel they [the Jews] are enemies for your sake [you Gentiles], but from the standpoint of [election, or] God’s choice, they are beloved for the sake of the fathers; for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.”
 .
“There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek, but glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” Romans 2:9-10
 .
“From everyone who has been given much, much will be required” (Luke 12:48).
 .
Jews do not have priority in righteousness or merit Nor do Gentiles. We are on the same footing, all have sinned. “There is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:22-23,
 .
“What then? Are we [Jews] better than they [Gentiles]? Not at all; for we have already charged that both Jews and Greeks are all under sin; as it is written, ‘THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE.'” Romans 3:9-10
 .
“Is God the God of Jews only? Is He not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also . . . God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith.” Romans 3: 29-30,
 .
“There is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; (13) for ‘WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.'” Romans 10:12,
.
“If you search for Him, He will let you find Him, but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.” 1 Chronicles 28:9
 .
We should pray for the Jewish people today that they might individually come to Jesus. This is all consistent with God’s instructions to Israel. “But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them: then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people: And at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and to this house?” I Kings 9:6-8. I
 .
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.” Colossians 3:11. In Christ Old and New Testaments are bound together and all the promises are now to be fulfilled in Spiritual Israel, the Church.
 .
Isaiah, tell us that “in the latter days … the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it” (Isaiah 2:2).
 .
In Bible prophecy, mountains and hills are used to represent governments or nations. This prophecy foretells a time when the future Kingdom of the Messiah will be established and will reign over all earthly governments and nations. The prophetic understanding of this divine Kingdom was at the heart of Jesus Christ’s message as well as the ultimate role of the Messiah. When Jesus announced the Kingdom of God is at hand (Mark 1:15), He was simply saying that the Kingdom of God that would come to earth. Jesus said all the people of the earth “will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:30). At Jesus’ second coming He is pictured as One who “judges and makes war” (Revelation 19:11). He will “strike the nations” with a sword and tread “the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God” (Revelation 19:15).
 .
The Idea of Messianic Judaism, or what some call Jewish Christianity, is false, they too need to be saved still. Jesus Christ is the God of Christianity. Jesus Began a New Religion Called Christianity. The Church is almost completely severed from its Jewish roots.

How Were the Jews Saved Before Jesus Came in the Flesh?
.
What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness . . . . Does this blessedness then come upon the circumcised only, or upon the uncircumcised also? For we say that faith was accounted to Abraham for righteousness. How then was it accounted? While he was circumcised, or uncircumcised? Not while circumcised, but while uncircumcised. . . . Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all (Romans 4:1–5, 9–10, 16)
 .
Salvation has always been and will always be by God’s grace and received through faith alone, and not be nationality, ancestry, lineage. “Judaism” to refer to the religion of the rabbis that developed from about 200 B.C. onwards and crystallized following the destruction of the Temple in A.D 70. Christianity is not described as a daughter religion of Judaism. In short Jesus didn’t come to establish Judaism for all to follow, he came as the Christ (that is the long expected and anticipated King from the Old Testament) to establish Christianity not as a set of laws to follow but as a life of following the Holy Spirit.

Jewish expectation, and kingdom expectation in Jesus’ time

Israel

I’m not surprised that many don’t believe in religion, god. I don’t believe in them either . “I believe in the God I see revealed in Jesus of Nazareth.” What most people mean by “god” simply is not the mainstream Christian meaning. Nor can we look to the Jewish scholars for help since they, by and large, have not been interested in this topic.

The central feature of Jewish expectation, and kingdom expectation even in Jesus’ time was the hope that God would return in person to Zion. The question of “Jesus and God” is a huge and difficult Jewish matter. Judaism has at its heart what we can and must call several incarnational symbols, not least the Torah, but particularly the Jerusalem empire, temple. Jesus in terms of past Torah and Temple defined his mission and hint at his own self understanding. The fact that God chose the Jewish people to form a kingdom of priests and gave promised them the land of Israel, has now been switched to the Christians, the replacement theology. Something the Jews and  Dispensationalists  still falsely deny. The true inheritors of Israel are not the Jews but the Christians. . Zionism is is an aggressive Jewish colonial false hope..

A key central Christological passages of the NT is essential to all.. A serious and disciplined theological thought on the part of even the very earliest Christians. Refusing to contemplate any god other than the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, they found themselves drawn by the Spirit to Jesus. The NT writers, are expressing a Trinitarian theology without needing to use any of the technical terms.. Also early Christians all regarded Jesus as the Messiah of Israel, the one in whom Israel’s destiny had been summed up. A theological DE legitimization of Israel. one “new man” made of both Jew and Christian did not warrant a Jewish state, the literal truth of New Testament scripture.

Classic Jews believe that there is one God, who created heaven and earth and who remained in close and dynamic relation with his creation; and that this God had called Israel to be his special people. The chosen people were also the rescued people, liberated from slavery in Egypt, marked out by the gift of Torah, established in their land, exiled because of disobedience, but promised a glorious return and final settlement. Jews believe falsely in the covenant of Exodus and Return, and this God is also utterly different from the Christian God, Jesus.

“To suggest therefore that the Jewish people continue to have a special relationship with God, apart from faith in Jesus or have exclusive rights to land, a city, and temple is, in the words of John Stott [a leading British evangelical], ‘biblically anathema.’”

Today’s State of Israel wishes only to be the superior nation in the family of nations. Jesus opposed first century Judaism, broke out of its constraining shackles, and was at liberty to think and say what he liked, and the same went for his followers. in this eagerness we forget what the NT writers and above all Jesus himself about Judaism. God chose Abraham and said “in your seed all the families of the earth will he blessed.” Galatians 3:29, where Paul says, “If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring.” It is precisely because Jesus of Nazareth is the fulfillment of this promise that he is relevant in all times and places. Jesus the light and salvation of the whole world, Jews included. This belief does not imply anti-Semitism .

When you try to build a bridge from biblical Israel to modern Israel, there is an enormous gap in New Testament history and theology. A continuing Jewish setting and meaning was rightfully forgotten within the early Church. Those Christians and Jews citing the Bible to support their Zionistic policy positions are thinking politically and not Biblically. The question today is whether the modern state of Israel is that nation that was imagined back in the Bible. Leo Tolstoy, pondered the survival of the Jews, but also sensed that their existence had to do with a unique purpose, Salvation by Jesus. Jews once chosen to be a “light unto nations.

It was, is possible for all Jews to conceive of a first century Jew, and all Jews credibly coming to believe that Jesus,a Christian was called to die for the sins of Israel, even of the world. Jesus is love poured out and love received. God’s Spirit brooded over the waters, and God’s Word Jesus goes forth to produce new life, God’s Law guides his people, God’s Presence or Glory, Jesus dwells with them, in the fiery cloud, in the tabernacle and in the temple. Paul, like other NT writers, uses the phrase “son of God” to denote Jesus.

“For us there is one God—the Father, from whom are all things and we to him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and we through him.” “At the name of Jesus”, he declares, “every knee shall bow.” It became another way of speaking about the one God present, personal, active, saving, and rescuing, while still being able to speak of the one God sovereign, creating, sustaining, sending, and remaining beyond. Jesus’ conviction that it was his task and role, his vocation, not only to speak of this kingdom but also to enact and embody The positive reason for studying Jesus within his historical context and using all the tools at our disposal to do so has to do with that still-neglected factor, the true meaning of Jesus within Israel, the purpose of God.

The creation of an exclusively Jewish state of Israel , Jewish supremionism, goes directly against God’s plan for the Jewish people and the World. Jewish statelessness was a necessary precursor to the salvation of humanity. Jesus brings the story of Israel to its climax by the destruction of the Jewish temple in 70 AD, and the furthering of the “kingdom of God” Jesus believed himself called to do and be what in the scriptures only Israel’s God did and was. What happened in 1948 and 1967 was not moral, and don’t believe it had any divine significance. here doesn’t necessarily need to be a “state” of Israel for the Messaiaship, a new Israel to be fulfilled .

The Church has inherited the promises of Israel. The message of Christianity is a universal one that is not interested in ethnicity or territory. The Church is actually the new Israel.” We don’t think of ourselves as anti-Israel, because to be “anti-” is not very loving. We are instead pro-Palestinian, pro-peace, and pro-love.The Church has inherited the promises of Israel.

WE don’t recognize that the Christian faith comes from Judaism,’ but instead of the children of Abraham, the Church, Christianity has superseded Judaism. Jesus had not promoted a type of Jewish supremacy.Those Jews and evangelical Christians who say an undivided Jerusalem should be the eternal capital of Israel are in great error. If you go back to the times of the Romans, even legally, Jerusalem was never belonging solely to the Jewish people.

Jesus’ resurrection led the early Church to speak of the way pointed to Israel’s Messiah, messiahship, messiahship to the task performed on the cross, and that task to the God who had promised to accomplish it himself and had done so. Israel could unilaterally bring an end to the Arab–Israeli conflict but chooses not to because of flaws in its national character. The onus for ending the Arab–Israeli conflict is on Israel. The Jews are still special to God… But so are all people.

A Fool, the wicked will continue to be wicked

fool

2 Timothy 1:7 that “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and of a sound mind.”
 .
Psalms 14:1, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”  14 By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 for this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them” (Matthew 13:14-15).
 .
There are no atheists in Heaven. Anyone can distort facts and paint a false picture of someone else. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications,  murders,  22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 all these evil things come from within, and defile the man” (Mark 7:21-23). 
 .
Evil hearts are experts at creating confusion and contention. They twist the facts, mislead, lie, avoid taking responsibility, deny reality, make up stories, and withhold information (Exodus 2:1Psalms 5:8; 10:7; 58:3; 109:2-5; 140:2; Proverbs 6:13,14; 6:18,19; 12:13; 16:20; 16:27, 28; 30:14; Job 15:35Jeremiah 18:18Nehemiah 6:8;Micah 2:1Matthew 12:34,35Acts 6:11-132 Peter 3:16).
devil (1)
 .
Evil hearts crave and demand control and their highest authority is their own self-reference. They reject feedback, real accountability and make up their own rules to live by. They use Scripture to their own advantage but ignore and reject passages that might require self-correction and repentance (Romans 2:8Psalms 10; 36:1-4; 50:16-22; 54:5,6; 73:6-9; Proverbs 21:24Jude 1:8-16).
 .
Evil hearts have no conscience, no remorse. They do not struggle against sin or evil, they delight in it, all the while masquerading as someone of noble character. (Proverbs 2:14-15; 10:23; 12:10; 21:27,29 Isaiah 32:6Romans 1:302 Corinthians 11:13-15). They are control freaks.
 .

If you are a   Control freak you are not only still unrealistic, immature, immoral person  but you  may have a serious personality disorder.  You are a menace, plus a real danger to yourself and to others, for you are an abuser, a human rights violator too. Having clearly now an exaggerated emphasis of your own self importance, being totally in  control is part of a cluster of behaviors that can be labeled as compulsive and generally characterized by perfectionism, orderliness, workaholic tendencies, an inability to make commitments or to trust others and a real cover-up for your fear of having your own flaws exposed. You are exposed now still too..  All  these type of Persons who  believe they can protect themselves by staying in control of every aspect of their lives, or of others, including their relationships are idiots, fools, grossly in error, in need of professional help, good pastoral counseling.

 .

I rightfully  believe in the right of free speech, mine, yours, everyone else’s and not solely yours. It seems some people, in churches, on the net, elsewhere, they  still wrongfully do think they are better than others, or want to dominate others, do try to give orders to others, do try to make rules for others  that they too often themselves do not follow too, they are in fact still bullies..  and now why is that? and who do they think they are now that they are so special? Mere fools. They mostly have a hidden agenda, they are falsely seeking fame, power, control, a position of prestige, for they are immoral slave drivers trying to walk on the back of others…  Control freaks or Bullies, abusers, wrongfully do cause  others stress so they can maintain a false sense of order. These people themselves firstly are are still riddled mostly with anxiety, fear, insecurity, and anger. They’re very critical of themselves their lover and their friends, but underneath all that still too that supposedly perfect outfit and great body is a mountain of real unhappiness, unresolved guilt, disturbed person.

.

Certainly, it’s natural to want to be in control of your life. But when you have to be in control of the people around you as well, well you have gone crazy, become a fool, a demonic controlled person who can’t rest until you get your way and you are headed down a very bumpy ride, it is easier to try to control yourself, and impossible to control all the others.

.

Most all of you have had to contend with control freaks and they are found everywhere, in Corporations, at  home, in churches too.. These are those people who insist on having their way in all interactions with you. They wish to set the agenda and decide what it is you will do and when you will do it. You know who they are – they have a driving need to run the show and call the shots. Lurking within the fabric of the conversation is the clear threat that if you do not accede to their needs and demands, they will be unhappy.. and they will delete your post…

devil (2)

The Bible warns us saying, “But when grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and do not regard the majesty of the Lord (Isaiah 26:10). 
.

Is 51:23 ..your tormentors {and} oppressors, those who said to you, Bow down, that we may ride {or} tread over you; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to pass over..

.

Someone had the mistaken idea we all do still need to be kind to these bad wolves in sheep clothing, the perverse oppressors, these human rights abusers.. dream on.. them being put into jail is the sole kindness they rather do deserve. In order to not feel degraded, humiliated and have your sense of self and self worth assaulted, you need to avoid being bulldozed by a controlling lover, boss or friend. When you are caught up in a truly destructive/controlling attachment, the best response may still also still be to expose them and call the police and walk out .

.

The WRONGFULLY STILL Unrepentant  bully’s problem is that he or she is one of those bad persons  who only feels truly alive when voicing hostility and contempt for his “enemies.” Without that, he or she starts gasping for air. It’s his nature.. self-destructive” ..  clearly these immoral  Bully, Basher of others, Abusers of others has a disappointed, deflated ego, negative self worth,  most likely related to past unresolved guilt, as a result  of  that   the bully, he or she, tries falsely to   build  their ego up by bashing, hating others, by being an antagonists against  his proclaimed enemies, which too often also  is most people , for  he or she no longer trust anyone, and Abusers this is a common very typical approach, fact in the character build up of Bullies, Bashers, but their approach is futile, the subsequent feeling of self worth dissipates too quickly, are actually replaced by guilt,  and his ego, self worth likely needs to be recharged with new hate.. and is replaced with more and larger hatred of the others.   Public exposure and prosecution of these bad persons here too services everyone’s best interest.

 .

When you confront evil, chances are good that the evil heart will stop counseling with you because the darkness hates the light (John 3:20) and the foolish and evil heart reject correction (Proverbs 9:7,8). But that outcome is far better than allowing the evil heart to believe you are on his or her side, or that “he’s not that bad” or “that he’s really sorry,” or “that he’s changing” when in fact, he is not.

.

Daniel says, “the wicked will continue to be wicked”, (Daniel 12:10),

 .
Mark 28-30: “Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith so ever they shall blaspheme. But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost has never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation
 .
They had developed an implacable contempt for Jesus.  They were expressing an attitude of unbelief which was persistent and calculated rejection of the activity of God toward them.  “You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do you” (Acts 7:51). They were doing the same thing their fathers had done. In Christ’s day they were resisting the Holy Spirit, and the same condition exists today – they are still resisting the Holy Spirit! Jesus warned them of the dire consequences of their attitude and actions. They were not just sinning against God in heaven above, or against the Son of God on earth – they were resisting, opposing, withstanding, impugning, confronting, assailing, attacking and repulsing the Holy Spirit – THE VERY ACTIVITY AND MINISTRATION OF GOD TOWARDS THEM! They are blaspheming the Holy Ghost!
 .
Romans 1:21, “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”

 Isaiah 45:9, “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?”  
 .
Hebrews 1:1-2, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 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.”
 .
 All the money in the world cannot buy eternal life. Jesus said, “Ye must be born again” (John 3:5-7). You cannot buy eternal life. 
.

 2nd Peter 3:2-5, “That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water.”
 .
When one chooses not to acknowledge God in their life that the downward path begins  . Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”;
 .
Everyone gets a chance to be saved in life. God cannot send anyone to Hell unless they willfully reject Jesus Christ. Titus 2:11, “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.” Ephesians 4:18, “Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.” The Godless world is blinded . Satan blinds men’s minds anyone he can, hindering them from seeing the glorious light of the gospel of Christ Jesus (2nd Corinthians 4:4).;
 .
Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks,  persons, civil and public servants,  politicians, pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you even while they claim they are proclaiming the truth, democracy, trying to help you, etc.,

True facts about the FALSE Dispensationalists

dis

True facts about the FALSE Dispensationalists

.

Mere men and not the Holy Spirit now are leading you away from the real Bible truths into lies, distortions, falsehoods, even the Dispensationalists. Dispensationalist eschatology is a new theology not even a part of Christianity even for 1800 years. Dispensationalists, and the Brethren do now falsely deny the “second blessing” , a personal religious Holy Spirit experience after which the believer is set aside for, equipped by God for life; Dispensationalists they are dead now even on two accounts. Denying the present role, works of the Holy Spirit, and their lack of personal good works by faith towards, or rather their unloving acts towards the others is the main reason. They seem to be racists as well. The Brethren boasted, from their very beginning in the nineteenth century, that their teachings represented a wide departure from the doctrines of their predecessors and contemporaries.

Dispensationalist eschatology falsely has produced a view that the reign of God and His glorious Kingdom is for some distant future 1000 years era, instead of any present reality, now how clearly demonic. This errant theology is fatalistically glorifying mainly that devil, and the “anti-christ,” who is about to emerge in the earth and try and make tall persons accept a tattoo or computer chip in order to buy and sell. Dispensationalism grants power to a devil who the Scripture tells us has been stripped of all power and authority. (Luke 10:19; Col. 2:15) Dispensationalism has contributed to a fear that there is a vast and comprehensive world-wide conspiracy of evil all around us, poised and ready to take over the government, the economy, and even the apostate churches. Dispensationalism reduces the need to contemplate and to dwell on Christ..

.
Dispensationalists believe that the Jews are God’s special Chosen People who do NOT need to believe in Jesus Christ in order to be saved, but instead will be saved purely by their race. Dispensationalists also support the slaughter of the Palestinians by the Jews so the land can be confiscated completely by Israel making way for the Jews to rebuild the Third Temple on the Temple mount in Jerusalem, facilitating, or so they incorrectly believe, the hastening of the Second Coming of Christ. Dispensationalists also endorse the destruction of all enemies of the Jews, including the Iraqis, the Iranians, the Lebanese, the Syrians, etc., because they have been deceived into believing that God will bless those who bless the Jews, no matter how murderous, wicked, and Anti-Christ is the behavior of Israel and the Jews. But the fact is, it is impossible to be a true Christian while supporting the murderous acts of Israel and the Jewish leaders. Those who claim to be “Christian” while supporting Israeli and Jewish Anti-Christ policies have naively given their allegiance to Satan. God is not interested in ethnicity, gender, or whether a person is a slave or free. He is “no respecter of persons.” He has no caste system. He is only interested in whether we have learned to trust Him or not. Are we a Believer in the One True God, or are we an Unbeliever? .

While the Dispensationalists even say they Believe the Bible is the Word of God, they too clearly do have this unholy, desperate and complicated, need to reinterpret almost every passages of the Bible suitable to their own liking. You falsely have to go by, play by, live now by the new Brethren, Dispensationalist”s, man made rules, interpretations, standards and not God’s.; Dispensationalism, the more you dig in, the less it makes sense.

So it was not surprisingly the Brethren movement was both refuted and rejected rightfully now by the majority of professing real Christians even to dateso the related dispensationalism rightfully is something to be avoided like the plague. In reality, and undeniably those persons who do not go along with them, do not support the Dispensationalists.  they the Brethren, even due to their own insecurities, do declare war against them, ostracize them, slander them, lie about them, divorce them too. All unacceptable and very ungodly, un Christ like , carnal behavior on their parts still too;  Lost in one area the dispensationalists are also lost now in many other areas, such as their false concept of Zion, Zionism, Rapture too. I know that even demon inspired persons will next face negative consequences cause so I am in the right asking them Dispensationalists, next  to repent of these their wrong doings undeniably too.

“Jesus Christ came as the Son of Man (the Second Adam) to set up God’s Kingdom on the earth. The Biblical prophecies that Christ would reign as King were fulfilled in Christ’s enthronement at His ascension. Daniel’s prophecy of the Son of Man coming in the clouds was fulfilled at the ascension of Christ. The Kingdom was established during the first advent of Christ, (including the judgment of A.D. 70 and destruction of the temple) It is now in progress and will continue to increase until the end of the world
.
The Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21) is not about the second coming of Christ. It is a prophecy of the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70; Christ’s impending resurrection, ascension and enthronement; and the final days of temple worship and the end of the Mosaic covenant. Christ’s own words stated it would happen in their lifetime. (the preciseness and accurate, detailed fulfillment of Jesus’ words are documented by the then contemporary historian Josephus)
.
Jesus clearly described what he called the “great tribulation”, as part of what would happen in their generation, but would never happen again. Jesus clearly and explicitly said it will not. Matt 24:21 “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be”. The “Great Tribulation” took place in the fall of Israel. It will not be repeated and thus is not a future event. (although Christians in every age have had to endure suffering for the faith)
.
All of Christ’s enemies are gradually being subdued under His reign from heaven. He will remain in heaven until all enemies are defeated. The last enemy, death will be destroyed when he returns. (Acts 2:34-35)

.
Jesus Christ will return on the Last Day, when the resurrection ad the last judgment will take place.
.
Galatians, Chapter 3, tells us clearly that the “seed (offspring) of Abraham” is Christ – and also HIS followers. 6 Even as Abraham believed (had faith in) God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness7 Know ye therefore that they that are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen (nations) through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying In thee shall all nations be blessed9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that continues not in all things that are written in the book of the law to do them.11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith (by believing that God WILL do ALL He has promised to do).12 And the law is not of faith: but, the man that doeth them shall live in them.13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree.14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the “Gentiles” (heathen – nations – Unbelievers) through Jesus Christ that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith (belief).15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s testament (covenant), yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one,And to thy seed, which is Christ.17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law that was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.19 What therefore is the purpose of the law? It was ADDED because of transgressions, till the seed (Jesus Christ) should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given that could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.22 But the scripture has concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.26 For ye are all children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. (This is eonian life!)28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.29 And if ye be Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. The “seed” of Abraham is CHRIST and His followers – the true Christians – the true “Israel” – NOT the Jews! .
.
The religion of the Israelites in the Old Testament was/is Christianity! Jesus, Himself, said so. “You search the Scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal (eonian) life; but they are they which testify of Me. John 5:39 The Old Testament is about Christ – NOT about Israel! Therefore, the religion of the Old Testament is/was – – – Christianity! . The rejection of truth by the leaders of the Israelites had thrown them into such profound darkness that they could no longer even discern truth. Instead, they rejected truth and “believed a lie” and murdered God/Jesus Christ. “Because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them a strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2 Thessalonians 2:10,11 And the Pharisees, Sadducees and their followers in the Organized Church of the day, committed a cosmic crime by murdering God! Jesus Christ is/was God – in human form. “And they shall call His (Jesus’) name Emmanuel, meaning GOD with us.” (Matthew 1:23) The Old Testament is about Christ – NOT about Israel! Therefore, the religion of the Old Testament is/was – – – Christianity! .

The alliance between evangelicals and Jews is  unholy, with  Christians, with a naïve persons  fund the Jewish people, and seeking the benediction of its rabbis and the partnership of its activists. They really do Let’s again look closely at the state of spirituality in Christian Zionist organizations, comparing their false beliefs, activities to what is actually mandated by the Bible.;

Where did Judaism come from and WHEN did it begin? The true Christianity of the Israelites was slowly subverted by an underground current of the spiritual ancestors of the Pharisees. This covert corruption began with the worship of the golden calf in the wilderness, then continued with the worship of the pagan god Baal, and then grew to include child sacrifice through the fire to the pagan god Molech. . The growth of this undercurrent of evil among the Israelites can be documented throughout the entire Old Testament. Moses chastised the Israelites when they turned their back on God. Joshua also warned them. During Samuel’s time, the Israelites demanded a king to rule them “as the other nations” had rather than allowing God to be their King. The prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah were later sent to warn the Israelites of their apostasy. . God showed Ezekiel the abominations secretly going on in Israel. (Ezekiel 8:5-17) Then said He (God) unto me (Ezekiel), Son of man, lift up your eyes, and look toward the north. So I lifted up my eyes toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar is the image of jealousy in the entrance.He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, do you see what they do? Even the great abominations that the house of Israel commits here, that I should go far off from My sanctuary? But turn again, and you shall see greater abominations.And He brought me to the door of the court (of the temple): and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.Then He said unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged I the wall, behold a door And He said unto me, Go in and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.So I went in and saw: and behold every form of creeping things (insects) and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, carved on the walls round about.And there stood before them seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up. (The leaders of Israel were secretly worshipping beasts and creeping things as did the pagan Egyptians.)Then said He unto me, Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the room of his idols? For they say, The Lord does not see us; the Lord has forsaken the land.He said also unto me, Turn yet again, and you shall see greater abominations that they do.Then He brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz (A Sumerian fertility god)Then said He unto me, Have you seen this, O son of man? Turn yet again and you shall see greater abominations than these.And He brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house, and behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men, with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.Then He said unto me, Have you seen this, O son of man? Is it a trivial thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? For they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke Me to anger . . .

Here Ezekiel documents this evil undercurrent that was corrupting the true Christianity of the Israelites. The leaders of the Temple were worshiping idols, beasts and creeping things, the Sumerian fertility god, Tammuz, and they were worshiping the pagan sun god in secret! . When God raised up prophets to rebuke Israel for their waywardness, the prophets were ignored, imprisoned or stoned to death. Eventually, the Israelites were taken captive by Babylon because of their apostasy. . Finally, Jesus, the Messiah, came but this wicked undercurrent had taken hold in such a strong way that the Pharisees and the Sadducees had become so arrogant and self-righteous that they accused Jesus of being a demon-controlled imposter. Jesus rebuked the leaders for bringing false doctrines into the beliefs of the Christian Israelites by promoting traditions that “made the commandments of God of none effect.” “Thus you have made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Matthew 15:6And He (Jesus) said unto them (the Pharisees), Full well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition. Mark 7:9 . Once they had rejected and killed the Messiah, Jesus Christ, they fell into even deeper darkness. In A.D. 70, Jerusalem and the temple in it were destroyed. Many of the Pharisees ended up in Babylon where these abominable oral “traditions of the elders” were committed to writing and became known as the Babylonian Talmud, the “holiest” book of Judaism. This evil undercurrent that had been smoldering for hundreds of years had now taken over completely, and a new occult religion was born – the religion of Judaism. . THESE were the originators of Judaism – the religion of Anti-Christ! . Then what does the term “Judeo-Christian” mean? .
.
The term “Judeo-Christian” is an oxymoron, the combining of two words defining two diametrically opposing systems of belief. It’s similar to using the term “blackish-white” or cloning a human being combined with a beast. The authors of Judaism were the Pharisees – the murderers of Christ! The values of Judaism are violently opposed to the values of Christianity as will be shown by quotes from their “holiest” book, the Talmud, including the Talmudic quotes that calls for theft from, lying to, and murdering of Christians – by the Jews. The term “Judeo-Christian” is a farce, total nonsense, and an abominable lie. It has been foisted on, and embraced by, almost all who refer to themselves as “Christians.” But how can they call themselves Christians when they are essentially worshiping the followers of Judaism who ridicule, curse and denounce Jesus Christ? .

I am aware of the fact the Dispensationalists, Rev John Darby and Cyrus Scofield have led many saints into such a mess, that it’s become the tool for a Brethren, Dispensationalist”s cult too!  Some persons do preach, write out of their guilty, to compensate for the related emptiness they are feeling, while others write because they are ambitious, they write out of seeking fame, their seeking a place of prominence.. many are just lead by the devil too.

A Congregationalist preacher by the name of C. I. Scofield came under the influence of Darby and the Plymouth Brethren. Scofield became a strong promoter of the Dispensationalist”s teaching that had been promulgated by Darby, whom he considered “the most profound Bible student of modern times.” He incorporated this teaching into his SCOFIELD REFERENCE BIBLE. Three million copies were published in the first 50 years!

Israel will be judged some day by God.. “Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her” (Rev. 18:8). 

Russia Is Not Rosh Gog Magog Meschech Or Tubal.  The error of this Russian theory arose from the Scofield Study Bible, which identifies Meshech and Tubalwith the modern Russian cities of Moscow and Tobolsk. The only basis for this interpretation is the somewhat similar sound of the two words. Thus: Meshech sounds like Moscow, and Tubal sounds like Tobolsk. However, one cannot simply take a word from an ancient Semitic language (in this case, Hebrew) and find a correlation to a modern name from a drastically different language (in this case an early form of Scandinavian) simply because the two words “sound the same.” While this may be convincing to some for the sole reason of phonetics, it is very irresponsible hermeneutics.

“A closer study of these names reveals that Meshech and Tubal are the ancient Moschi/Mushki and Tubalu-Tibareni peoples who dwelled in the area around, primarily south of, the Black and Caspian Seas in Ezekiel’s day. These nations today are in the modern country of Turkey, possibly parts of southern Russia and northen Iran. “Magog today probably represents the former underbelly of the Soviet Union: Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Uzebekistan, Turkmenistan, and Tajikistan. All these are Muslim. Meshech was located near what was known as Phrygia, in central and western Asia Minor (Turkey), while Tubal was located in Eastern Asia Minor (Turkey). So with Meshech and Tubal, we are dealing with portions of modern Turkey. Today this region is all Muslim.

Alos Gomer is in Turkey not Russia or Germany. This is the land of ancient Kimmeria. Gomer, it “refers to the Celtic Cimmerians of Crim-Tartary.” Gomer is well known to the ancient world as Gimarrai of north central Asia Minor (Cappadocia). These people are also known as the Cimmerians. This seems to be the simplest, most obvious interpretation. So Gomer is Gimarra or Cimmeria in Cappadocia. Cappadocia is simply central Turkey, again, another Islamic region.

When Russia stood with Nazi Germany, many concluded that Hitler was the European Antichrist. They were wrong. As soon as Stalin was betrayed by Hitler, Russia fought against Germany. If so many prophecy analysts were wrong then, and they are also wrong again. Prior to the Jewish Bolshevik Revolution in Russia , Christian scholars and historians used to identify the nations of the Magog, Meshech, Tubal and Gomer with the regions of the Caucasus and Turkey.

The Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, citing ancient Assyrian writings, places the location of Magog in the landmass between ancient Armenia and Media – in short, the Republics south of Russia and noth of Israel, comprised of Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Turkestan, Chechnya, Turkey, etc. I agree with all these quotes and I add; these are all Muslim nations.

Magog is specifically referred to as the region of “the land of Magog, chief prince (head or leader of) of Mesech and Tubal” (Ezekiel 38:2). Because Meshech and Tubal are regions of Turkey – Magog must thus be related to Turkey. Otherwise the passage would make little sense. How could Russia be the head over regions of Turkey? It makes better sense to conclude that Gog is a leader from the land of Magog and the leader of Meshech and Tubal, all of which are in Turkey.

Now Russia is a country that is 86% Christian according to the CIA World Fact Book. Much of the “Russia is Magog” misinformation was propagated in the US during the Cold War. Russian xenophobia that has been further driven by bad American preachers and televangelists.

Satan lies when he says that the “Gog and Magog” is Russia but Magog, Meschech, and Tubal are references to Russia; are all Turkish nations.

“Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army (Ezekiel 38:15-16)

In the Old Testament, the king of the north has reference to the areas of Syria, Turkey, and Iraq. The word north is used of Syria or the Old Seleucid Empire six times, of Babylon sixteen times, of Assyria one time, and of Iran one time. These are the lands once occupied by Magog, Gomer, Togarmah, Meshech and Tubal.

“For many walk of whom I often told you and now tell you even weeping that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction whose god is their appetite and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things.” Philippians 3:18,19

It is a really sad fact, in spite of the fact many, Dispensationalists, they may use some of the same words  other real Christians do now,  that too many professing Christians who claim they love God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, in reality they are still not filled with the Holy Spirit even  because they have rejected the fullness of the Holy Spirit, and his gifts being applicable today, they now  falsely  have limited the Gospel as being Jesus the Savior only and they wrongfully do not teach  the full Gospel of Jesus the Christ now as well…. and they falsely emphasize the usage of Greek and the teaching of men, such as Darby, Scofield, over the Holy Spirit teaching us directly.. and those amongst them who do this they all basically do not have the Holy Spirit, are actually deceived, are now none of His..

Too many they falsely emphasize falsely even keeping all of the old Testament commandments of God, basically in one’s own strength, are  those amongst them who do this they all basically do not have the Holy Spirit, are actually deceived, are now none of His.. They thus too really are still unsaved thus.

Preterists and Dispensationalists need to open up to the Holy Spirit’s supernatural working and His giftings for people today in order to practically live out the kingdom we preach and change our culture. Only by the supernatural direction and experience of God’s Holy Spirit can we fulfill our calling in this “world without end.” The Dispensational teaching in the Left Behind books has made many rich. Most television and radio preachers today are proclaiming some form of Dispensationalism but many are breaking free from this erroneous doctrine. While there are many different versions of Dispensationalism, it generally proposes the work of God is divided into “dispensations” with respect to time and claiming that God changed something in dealing with men.  The New Scofield Reference Bible, is a Bible version whose erroneous translation promotes dispensationalism:

God is with us and he can personally speak to us all of the time. This statement can cause a wide range of reactions: even from those who claim they now have a relationship with God, some honestly scoffing and ridicule all those who claim to hear God speak . all those persons who have a continual relationship with God, and they do rightfully say “why haven’t I yet found it?”. There are valid reasons, they need to look into themselves. Some honest people who want such a relationship but haven’t found it yet, are encouraged by stories of those who have developed a relationship with God but also can hear God speak . Many of them wonder how you start to develop and nurture such a relationship with God , not mere men. First, you must trust and believe the fact that God exists and he now is with us all. and all of the time. And God has not abandoned you yet but your unrepentant, unforgiving sins stands in the way, blocks your relationship with God. You need to slow down and obey God not just open your eyes, ears, and mind in to know see, hear, and understand them. You can start by accepting Jesus Christ as your lord and personal Savior by asking him into your life, by confessing and renouncing all of your sins, as well as quietly meditating on God’s words, and Praising him, and also by tuning out the noise of self, others, and the devil, the world around you. Once the background noise level gets turned down you will get to know God better . While in this state will may notice that his voice come to you and you know it is not to be your own. These words will start to give you insight into your life, God’s will and plan for you and he can even begin to shed light on issues that have been concerning you. These words are the beginnings of God talking with you. Learn to wait upon God, to relax, be quiet, and reflect on Him.
