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.

Grace and Faith

faith

“Grace”, the doctrine of the grace of Gods the most important concept in the Bible, Christianity, and the world. It is most clearly expressed in the promises of God revealed in Scripture and embodied in Jesus Christ. it is very center and core of the Bible. Grace is the unmerited favor of God towards us . Grace is getting what you don’t deserve, and not getting what you do deserve. Grace is not being proud, self sufficient but rather having a humble opinion of one self.

.

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. … For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ John 1:14, 17

Ephesians 2:8-9 – For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:

But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they also are Acts 15:11

Romans 6:14 – For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Romans 11:6 – And if by grace, then [is it] no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if [it be] of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

James 4:6 – But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

Romans 5:8 – But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Hebrews 4:16 – Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

John 1:16 – And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

Romans 3:20-24 – Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law [is] the knowledge of sin.

Titus 2:11-14 – For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

Romans 3:24 – Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

2 Timothy 2:1 – Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus, in order that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them Ephesians 2:1-10

He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished upon us. In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fulness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things upon the earth. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ should be to the praise of His glory Ephesians 1:5-12

But Thou art a God of forgiveness, Gracious and compassionate, Slow to anger, and abounding in loving kindness; Nehemiah 9:17

And when he wanted to go across to Achaia, the brethren encouraged him and wrote to the disciples to welcome him; and when he had arrived, he helped greatly those who had believed through grace (Acts 18:27).

… which has come to you, just as in all the world also it is constantly bearing fruit and increasing, even as it has been doing in you also since the day you heard of it and understood the grace of God in truth (Colossians 1:6).

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18

Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need Hebrews 4:16

“God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble” James 4:6; cf. 1 Peter 5:5

Faith is necessary to please God. Hebrews 11:6 , “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”

Hebrews 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus,I the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

.

We respond to His grace by faith and appropriate what has already been accomplished.

.

Faith is defined as being a positive response to what God has already provided by grace. Faith appropriates what God has already provided. God’s grace has provided not only for salvation but also for every need of your life. Jesus has saved, healed, delivered, or prospered many a person in the last 2,000 years. Jesus said that not everybody will be saved (Matt. 7:13), yet Scripture says it is the will of God that none should perish (2 Pet. 3:9). God has provided salvation, healing, financial provision, and everything else we need, but if we don’t respond in faith to what has been provided by grace, we won’t receive. God’s will is for everyone to be healed. Acts 10:38 says that Jesus went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil, and it calls what He did “good.” And 1 Peter 2:24 tells us that we were healed by His stripes, yet most of us still do not receive His healing into our lives.

.
Faith in God is a choice. Our faith in God is the very thing that holds us steady and keeps us safe from the terrifying storms of life. It’s the intrinsic base of our reliance and confidence in God. Faith is central to Christianity, and faith is a relationship term. We must have faith in Jesus Christ. This means that we believe that he is all he says he is, and he will do what he has promised. It means that we trust him. It is Christ in us who makes all things possible, even our deliverance from death. When we realize that God has all power to do anything he wants, and that he always uses it for the good of humanity, then we can have absolute confidence that we are in good hands. He has both the ability and the purpose of working all things (including even our rebellion, hatred and betrayal against him and one another) toward our salvation. He is completely trustworthy—worthy of our trust. When we are in the midst of trials, sickness, suffering and even dying, we can be confident that God is still with us, that he cares for us, that he has everything under control. It may not look like it, and we certainly do not feel in control, but we can be confident that God isn’t caught off guard. He can and does redeem any situation, any misfortune, for our good. We need never doubt God’s love for us. Grace without your positive response of faith won’t save you, and faith that isn’t a response to God’s grace will bring you into condemnation. But put your faith in what God has already done for you, and you have the victory that overcomes the world (1 John 5:4).

.

In Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ…. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, 16 and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross…. You are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household. Ephesians 2:13-19

.

Biblical Faith concerns:

Things that are promised for the future,
Things that are present that are invisible.
God loved us even when we were his enemies; he will be faithful in all circumstances.
The resurrection of Jesus shows that God has the power to save us even from death.
When we trust God, we obey him, knowing that his commands are for our good.
No one has perfect faith; we grow in faith through life experiences.
Doubts and questions can lead us to trust Christ even with the unknown.

.

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Luke 18:8 Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

So what there no is inconsistency in allowing Muslim prayers in the classroom, work while upholding the banning of a Christian praying?

“Muslim refugees do “bully, persecute and harass” Christians, who came to German refugee camps from the Middle East in search of a better life . Christian asylum seekers from Syria, Eritrea and elsewhere suffer bullying, persecution and harassment at the hands of their Muslim neighbors in refugee camps.  Sometimes, bullying ends in injuries and death threats,”  Muslims, who converted to Christianity, as the group that runs the highest risk of being abused. “They should fear for their life,” he warned, “since Muslim radicals treat ‘apostates’ as if they have no right to live.””

“Too many Muslim clerics  also do  preach violence and terrorism. The local mosques and clerics thus will continue to produce people who will be attracted to the message of radicals. And as long as the governments of Muslim countries do not stand against radical factors and principles prevalent in their own societies, and the clerics who preach it, such as Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey,  etc.,  ISIS  and other Muslim terrorist  groups will continue to find a  breeding ground for their recruits.”

Arab countries should take in the  Muslim migrants but won’t. “And they’re going to try to convince us in the West that they’re peace-loving?”  “And they won’t even take their own people. Are you kidding me?”

Muslim cleric iTarik Chadlioui n Belgium incited Paris jihad murderer to kill unbelievers. Anjem Choudary Charged With Supporting Islamic State and Incitement in UK . Mustafa Kamel Mustafa or simply Abu Hamza, is an Egyptian cleric who was the imam of Finsbury Park Mosque in London, England, where he preached Islamic fundamentalism and militant Islamism. .Sheik Terra.with a Koran in one hand and pistol in the other, calls for the murder of non-Muslims, including several world leaders, on a videotape., he preaches Violence in England… Australian Muslim cleric Feiz Muhammad.has called for the beheading of Dutch anti-Islamic politician .. Bakri Sunni hadiths portray prophet Mohammad as as a violent torturer .. Egyptian cleric Fadel Soliman allows violence as he tours British universities . Another Islamic Hate Cleric uses UK as base to incite to violence and preach support for jihad savagery – See more at: http://pamelageller.com/…/islamic-hate-cleric-uses-uk…/ 

Poll: Half of British Muslims Support Muslim Clerics Preaching Violence – 

Pew Research recently showed that a tiny minority in many of  the  Muslim  majority  countries do now hold a favourable view of ISIS, and all of them turn out to be alarmingly high numbers  that even  provides a breeding ground for Muslim terrorism.  A ban on saying prayers in the street, a practice by French Muslims  has come into effect in the capital, Paris.  Far right protests at the “Islamisation” of the Goutte d’Or district began last year and in December the leader of the French National Front, Marine Le Pen, accused Muslim fundamentalists of using prayers for political ends.

Islam is not primarily a religion but a political control system for economic and territorial domination. It is fascism exactly like Hitler or Stalin that seeks to take over the world. A Muslim proverb says: “First we will wipe out the Saturday people and then we will eliminate the Sunday people. What is the Islamists’ highest goal? It is without doubt to be martyred in a physical battle for Allah in extending his sovereignty or the rule of his law on the Earth. and to have more sex. The highest and greatest reward for Muslim men is to go to heaven where he will have 72 bashful dark eyed virgins (houris) at his sexual disposal and whim.  The description of heaven is exactly what a 7th century Arab male would find appealing in the physical sense only: 80,000 servants, 72 beautiful sex slaves, wine and booze, fruit, shade, fine clothing and jewelry, carpets made of silk, music etc. .The systematic rapes of women  by Muslim men could be yet another consequence of the  mass Muslim migration.

0000 ISIS

Still Islam is not a religion of peace. We all can see that daily world wide.

The Imam of a Salafist Cologne mosque has said the victims of the New Year’s Eve attacks in that city were themselves responsible for their sex assault, by dressing inappropriately and wearing perfume so it is not surprising the men wanted to attack them. [Dressing like that] is like adding fuel to the fire. Absurd defense of Muslim rape.

“A female Islamic professor has claimed that Allah has allowed Muslim men to rape non-Muslim women in order to ‘humiliate’ them,   This degradation of non-Muslims is the essence of Islamic religious practice., When Muslims cry, Allahu Akbar, they proclaim their supremacy to non-Muslims because Allah has allowed them to degrade the non-Muslims. When ISIS fighters shout Allahu Akbar and rape Yazidi women, this is what it means. – Suad Saleh  a professor from  Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt.  Islam hasn’t been hijacked. Even in its moderate form, it is a theology of degrading non-Muslims.  Suad Saleh’s statements are disheartening as they come from a professor at a prestigious institute that is over 1,000 years old. Al-Azhar University is a renowned institute in Cairo, Egypt, that is the oldest degree-granting institute in all of Egypt. The university is touted as “Sunni Islam’s most prestigious university.” Therefore, the statements made by the female professor are of great concerns.”

60% Germans Think their  Country Can’t Manage the Muslim Refugee Influx, 70% Say Crime Will Go Up. The dramatic change in the numbers is attributed to the Muslim rapes, sexual attacks in Cologne and other German cities on New Years Eve. The total number of complaints filed with Cologne police now stands is 653, with 331 of those involving sexual assault, and several of those assaults reported as rape. Germany’s current leaders, led by Chancellor Angela Merkel, stand accused of “betraying their own people to a future of bloodshed and committing national suicide” after they tacitly conspired to hide the rape jihad being waged by Muslim migrants on their women folk. Blaming the Non Muslims, the women for these crimes, rapes is absurdity too..

“In Egypt, victims of sexual harassment have been repeatedly denounced and blamed for the actions of their attackers.. A prominent member of another Salafist party, al-Asala, said something similar, claiming that women “sometimes cause rape upon themselves through putting themselves in a position which makes them subject to rape.” In fact, women around the world face brutal punishment — often sexualized — for having been victims of sexual violence. In Saudi Arabia, victims of gang rape face hundreds of lashes. In India, gang rape has been used to punish women for the crimes of men. All of this fits a pattern, whereby those in power use sexual violence as a political tool to control the movements of those whom they falsely see as the true source of chaos in society: women. Blaming victims of sexual assault sends  false  acceptability around the abusers’ actions by implying that the responsibility lies with the victim rather than the attacker.”

“Mass recent Immigration is bringing Islamic norms, and Islamic attitudes towards women, to the West, and it is making all free women less free, and safe women less safe. ” Now mobs of Arab, African  men descending on a European cathedral to rape Christian women , rape a common Muslim  punishment, was too much now. German police are hunting a group of up to 1,000 men after hundreds of women reported vile sex attacks in the German city of Cologne on New Year’s Eve . The majority of those arrested so far are indeed Muslim refugees, asylum seekers. When these Muslim refugees arrive in Western countries, they bring with them violent and sexist  Muslim cultural attitudes that contributed in part to the mess they fled. Most Muslims tend yo have a deep-seated hatred of all things Western .Thus there is a Rising Anti-Muslim Backlash In  America and Europe today.”

 NBC

 The National Bank of Canada takes a very arrogant approach .

It is an accepted fact that when I  buy a service from a firm, that I  get a  monthly or annually written  bill, written invoice firstly for the service  and that includes the telecommunication firms,  Internet providers –  a Bill of which I  have never gotten in the first place, from the National Bank Of  Canada and thus the National Bank Of Canada they do not have a right to  withdraw money from my Bank Account for the rest of my life just cause they  are my bank  as they have illegally  done so in my case.
 .
I want you all to note also that an add on misleading, a one sided   note such as “notify us of any inaccuracies  within 30 days” on the bottom of any  Bank account statement or any written  notifications  is not legally binding , not a part of the contractual obligation, and has been rejected by the courts themselves  because it has not been priory, specially  mutually accepted, specifically signed upon by both  parties of  the contract.
 .
Again  firstly I had never had received a monthly or an annually invoice, Bill, or the exact detail of their posted services,  charges to me as required by law even  for the last few years  and that was unacceptable    I was treated in ” accordance with the industry standards” and “the CRTC” as well  to which I replied that was not a legal court accepted method, and so far their clearly poor and  buck passing approach has been really unsatisfactory.  
 .
 A contract also  is a legally binding fully mutually agreed upon exchange of promises or agreement between competent two parties, persons of legal age to , that the governmental court, the law of the state or province , or country next will enforce. Contract law is based on the Latin phrase pacta sunt servanda (pacts must be kept).   The bottom line is that  the parties generally come to transactions in good faith, mutually trust and full understanding, and not a one way approach, one way demands, one way relationship. A valid contract always requires the mutual parties’ full consent, understandings  which clearly has not been the case.. Consent isn’t mutual unless the parties agree on the same thing in the same sense, a clear “meeting of the minds.Look the big Corporations have their massive, lop sided one sided contracts and they are still immoral.. Corporations or not.. Contracts have two parties who have equal say and right, agreement too.. One party now  presenting only their own  their terms, conditions, without the other parties approval, full understanding, full  consent, free will   clearly is still not a valid contract.  
.

A Federal legislation will end fees for getting monthly bills on paper:

The federal government will introduce legislation to end what is called pay-to-pay, that is charging people for a monthly bill on paper. The telecom firms met under the auspices of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunication Commission on Thursday and agreed to exempt some people, including seniors, the disabled, military vets and people without Internet access. The CRTC said it wasn’t enough. The minister says Canadians expect lower prices and better service from the telecoms. The Public Interest Advocacy Centre has estimated consumers pay $734 million every year in fees to get bills on paper.“We do not believe that Canadians should pay more to receive a paper copy of their telephone or wireless bill,” Moore said. Porking the barrel with extra costs is an immoral business practice. They have a bad motivation for  to keep the extra fees in place for as long as possible. The cost of invoicing a client is a normal business cost.

(Job 28:28 KJV) And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

(2 Chr 19:7 KJV) Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts

(1 Cor 9:27 KJV) But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Beware also 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., I do not have to accept any of the negative consequences, or bad acts of other persons and their sins too. That includes their verbal abuse, physical abuse, slander, lies, emotional abuses, their false silent treatment too now. etc.. I can even tell them that now too.

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

Is 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have love, pity, {and} mercy for him, and to our God, for He will multiply to him His abundant pardon. 8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.

Is 56:10 watchmen are blind, they are all without knowledge; they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; dreaming, lying down, they love to slumber.

I still am often amazed how many control freaks I do encounter, and yes often they can also be found in schools, homes, work, church, governments, elsewhere too.. these are people who often claim they are giving you some helpful hints, tips, advice but are trying to manipulate you to do something they rather want. “there’s no one answer to abuse…..here is one that helps you till God deals with the other person.. he often takes them far away from you, and some even die early.. or they do next suffer really bad…  control freaks seldom recognize their fears. At work, they may worry about failure. In relationships, they may worry about not having their needs met. To keep this anxiety from overwhelming them, they try to control the people or things around them. They have a hard time with negotiation and compromise and they can’t stand imperfection. Needless to say, they are difficult to live with, work with and/or socialize with.  “Those who demand the most often give the least.” Ask them to send you something or do something for you. By asking something of them, you will be indicating that you are not intimidated or diminished by their behavior patterns. 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 to call the police and also walk out.  We cannot never control a bad person, a drug addict or an alcoholic, but we can learn all about it and learn firstly to control our own behavior, appropriate responses –including how we should behave in the relationship with the sick and suffering and /or possibly manipulative addict or alcoholic, abuser OR THESE pretentious persons.. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons seems to be most effective way that works for everyone’s benefit in dealing with the bad acts of others still. While too too do   believe in all things work for the best for those who love God, but I rebuke all evil persons rightfully still.. I do not accept rightfully their abuse of me or the others. Here is my reality.. Control freaks are demonic persons, led by the devil, who try to abuse us and to  bring us into bondage, and they tend to get a lot more crazy, get a lot worse..  Jesus has set me free.. from even being hooked to sins, and also from the bondage, the false oppression, enslavement by others.. sadly many other people want to be still enslaved but not me, I have really experienced freedom, I know what it is like, and I want to maintain my full freedom by God’s permission, help, now too. When I think about being set free I often do think about two images, visions that God has given me typically.. an all black, dark picture that turns to a normal scenery… and a picture of a large snake coming at me the size of a train which next disappears instead..
Many people rightfully practice tough  love.. Being nice or kind, friendly  to a really bad person  is still also a complete waste of time, for they will not change their negative behaviors on their own, they see   no reasons to do so now still too. Sad but true. We cannot never control a bad person, a drug addict or an alcoholic, but we can learn all about it and learn firstly to control our own behavior, appropriate responses –including how we should behave in the relationship with the  sick and suffering and /or possibly manipulative addict or alcoholic, abuser..
Establish Boundaries, Set Limits, Set detachment.  One example of setting a boundary is telling a close friend, even a loved one  that you prefer they not be around you if they are smoking,  drunk or high. Notice that it is specific demand, and you have to sit down and communicate this type of request explicitly with that someone. Setting a boundary like this is difficult because there is this tendency to hurt other’s feelings. But that is part of what is keeping you ineffective– your caring more about this person’s feelings than your own personal well being. Setting boundaries is about putting your own personal well being and even that of others first, and letting that be a guiding example of how to live. You know you are setting effective boundaries when you are taking back control of your own life firstly and starting to regain your own sanity–instead of being all wrapped up in the problems of a struggling smoker, rebel, drug addict or alcoholic.
 
“Here are some more  things that you can do in order to practice detachment with the struggling pervert in your life: -Don’t do things that they should be doing themselves. -Don’t bend over backwards to rescue them or save them from natural consequences. -Don’t cover up for their mistakes or embarrassing situations. -Don’t rescue them from crisis or financial situations. -Don’t try to fix them. -Let go of any guilt you may have about them
Detachment is not about denying your emotions. If someone close to you dies, for example, you will probably feel sad. You can’t choose this feeling. It simply is. But we do have the power to affect the intensity of this feeling, by focusing on the positive aspects of the situation. We can also change our thinking in an attempt to eradicate irrational beliefs that might be contributing to our emotional turmoil.
The goal is not to go without emotions, the goal is to achieve some level of emotional stability. We are detaching from the negative, irrational thoughts that stir up our emotions–like the guilt we might have if we think someone’s perversity, addiction is our fault.
Detachment is difficult and takes practice.”
  
Here also is what I know for sure, the older the person is the more extreme, more severe, the more difficult the punishment has to be on them to cause them to personally to change in their own negative ways, for they are too set in them now too.
ALCOHOL and drugs now are still a sin, A VICE AND NOT A NECESSITY . and a lot of criminal activity linked to drug addiction, alcohol too.
 
Some persons rightfully maintain that prison,  job termination are still the main and best solution to this problem of alcoholics, drug abuses too .. for my being kind to the UNREPENTANT wicked, bad, no good persons is really now still a complete waste of time, energy, effort for without real negative consequences neither they or the others tempted to follow them they will not tend to readily positive change, for their own good or the good of others.
(Isa 26:10 KJV)  Let favour be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.11 LORD, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.
 
(Hab 2:5 KJV)  Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:
I have really also learned  from personally observing many persons the last 35 years that there tends to be no such thing as a little bit pregnant,  that to open the barn door a little bit,  left unrestrained, undisciplined, unsupervised, means  the barn door next  will eventually swing wide open.. and when any person tends to personally allow, start a little acceptable vice, abuse, eventually the other even bigger vices, abuses  do now also tend to grow, develop there as well..  and yes while some deny it they too all thus next can be easily discovered, even though the guilty persons too often  will deny this.. and this includes even now next the vices of pre-marital sex, sodomy, polygamy, alcoholism, gambling,  adultery,  drunkenness, bingeing, gluttony, gouging, self-destructive behaviors, selfishness, indifference, apathy, jealousy, anger, hate,   envy,   rudeness, irritability or grudges , lust, cussing, cheating , addiction, shoplifting, stealing, tax evasions and even the others abusive behaviors of bullying, racism, discrimination, pride, lying.  Many people lie to others and falsely deny they have a personal problem. You see one of the major problem about lying is one next tends to believe in one’s own lie as being the truth when they   still are not the truth, and one does do becomes personally partially often next even insane for lying.  …  And most people still do even lie every 3 to 5 minutes they undeniably say? But some person lie a lot more than others, a lot more.. even to themselves , others and to the courts especially. it is not just all the men now that are supposedly the bad guys. in reality men and women are still equal sinners according to God still too and both lie, sin. One of the major problem about lying is one next tends to believe in one’s own lie as being the truth when they still are not… Most of the liars  still are wrongfully not willing to take any personal responsibility, accountability for their own faults, their own shortcomings now next  too and project wrongfully their faults, problems even on the others

 

The real, root problem often is not the alcohol, or the drugs themselves, alone but rather one honestly dealing with themselves and their own real shortcomings  still too.The basic secret of all successful substance abuse termination programs are accepting personal responsibility, personal accountability,  the individual first personally has to admit he or a she  has done wrong, also admits he or she now does needs help,  admit that they is willing to take the help.. all three aspects are required still too. An appropriate real self examination on their own part is always needed firstly here  for it is also their  own real bad personal acts,  and related guilt that next contributes, contributed to his or  her own poor self image, fears, additional  problems..  especially more when things did not go the way he or she had planned beforehand . 
 
Do face it the person who takes bad drugs, alcohol does take it willingly and he or she should also suffer real negative consequences for his poor personal choice here on earth still too, especially when his or her choice harms anyone else.
  
The Public exposure and prosecutions of the guilty persons starting rightfully at the top, but goes down to the bottom as well  serves everyone’s best interest and is continually mandatory for everyone’s best and good welfare.
 
(Luke 17:3 KJV)  Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. …. but their supposed repentance does not automatically exclude their negative consequences still
  
(Prov 22:1 KJV)  A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
 
Can a Person change themselves? Is there hope for anyone? Only if they follow God’s rules!! Accepting Jesus! and we all should look in hope at the calendar.. 2008 ad.. 2008 years after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ… so undeniably off an event it even changed the calendar history too.

(Mat 4:17 KJV)  From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Biblical repentance is admitting one sins to God, stopping and consciously turning away from them, turning back toward God,  and personally accepting Jesus Christ finished work, forgiveness for them. True repentance is confession, contrition,   change; replacement and it involves the whole person, Our Body, Soul, Spirit. It is also  a personal, ongoing event. http://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2012/09/13/repent-for-the-kingdom-of-heaven-is-at-hand/

Jesus-

We are lied to all the time in real life.. about many things too.

.

No Sin is not cheap, there is a big price next  to pay for it.. 

.

The apostle Paul declared in Galatians 6:7, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” There has always been consequence to sin from the moment Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the garden (Genesis 2,3).

.

No Man should ever  think that he can escape the eye of God even if some time has passed..

.

God has the sin of adultery listed as one of His special 10 commandments – “Thou shall not commit adultery.”
.

And God spoke all these words, saying: “I am the Lord Your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me … You shall not commit adultery …” (Exodus 20:1-14)

.

All sex intercourse outside of marriage, which is defined as an act solely  between a man and a women, including polygamy is immoral because it is stealing that which does not belong to you.. and expect the devil and his followers to falsely disagree here too. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/08/19/adultery/

.

The mouth of an immoral woman is a deep pit; he who is abhorred of the Lord will fall there.” (Proverbs 22:14)  
.
“My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes observe My ways. For a harlot is a deep pit, and a seductress is a narrow well. She also lies in wait as for a victim, and increases the unfaithful among men.” (Proverbs 23:26)  
.
“Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, do not stray into her paths; for she has cast down many wounded, and all who were slain by her were strong men. Her house is the way to hell, descending to the chambers of death.” (Proverbs 7:25)  
.
“For the commandment is a lamp, and the law is light; reproofs of instruction are the way of life, to keep you from the evil woman, from the flattering tongue of a seductress, do not lust after her beauty in your heart, nor let her allure you with her eyelids. For by means of a harlot a man is reduced to a crust of bread; and an adulteress will prey upon his precious life. Can a man take fire to his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Can one walk on hot coals, and his feet not be seared? So is he who goes in to his neighbor’s wife; whoever touches her shall not be innocent … Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding; he who does so destroys his own soul.” (Proverbs 6:23, 32)
.
“Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but the fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrews 13:4)  
.
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9
.
“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:19)
.
“Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But 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.” (James 1:13)
.
“Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul …” (1 Peter 2:11)  
.
“Now the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body … Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot 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 6:13)
.
But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. Luke 12:5
 .
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.
 .
Revelation 22: 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
 .
King David lusted after Bathsheba. He had many wives and concubines, but in the season when kings go off to war, he neglected his duties. Lounging around the palace, he was tempted by the sight of Bathsheba and fell. He impregnated her, and tried to conceal the adultery by bringing her husband back from the wars to sleep with her. Uriah would not lie with his wife because he would not live in pleasure while his comrades in battle were in the field, suffering and in danger.  David arranged for Uriah’s death in battle. Nathan the prophet confronted David, and David’s reaction was not to attack the prophet, but to repent. He repented sincerely and profoundly; his psalms of repentance are still often said today. But God still punished him. David’s infant son, conceived in adultery, died, despite David’s praying in sackcloth and ashes. Even after he forgives us, God still sends us temporal punishment to insure we are not so easily tempted to sin the next time.. .  even to show us that our sins have consequences, for ourselves and for others.
 .
 David had sinned, and he falsely even thought that he had  build an effective cover-up plan. He only overlooked one very large detail: you can’t hide your heart from God.
 
 7 Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man! Thus says the LORD God of Israel: “I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul. 8 I gave you your master’s house and your master’s wives into your keeping, and gave you the house of Israel and Judah. And if that had been too little, I also would have given you much more! 9 Why have you despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon. 10 Now therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised Me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.’   2 Samuel 12:7-10 NKJV 
. 

These were the consequences of David’s sin:

The sword would not depart from David’s family. God would raise up adversity against David from within his family.

God would allow a neighbor (David’s son, Absalom) to have sex with David’s wives in public, since he had taken Uriah’s wife Bathsheba secretly (2 Samuel 12:11-12).

The child that Bathsheba bore by David would die (2 Samuel 12:14).

 .

How Did These General Predictions Work Out?

  1.-David’s son by Bathsheba dies. II Samuel 12:15-18A

 2.-Incest and rape within the family. II Samuel 13:1-19

  3.-Premeditated murder within the family. II Samuel 13:20-29

 4.-David’s son flees. II Samuel 13:30-39

  5.-Arsen within the kings household. II Samuel 14:28-33

  6.-Disloyalty and insurrection of David’s throne by his own son. II Samuel 15:1-13

 7.-David needs to flee his own home. II Samuel 15:14

 8.-David himself is cursed and attacked. II Samuel 16:5-13

 9.-Immorality in public by David’s son. II Samuel 16:20-22

 10.-Battle of King David’s forces against his son Absalom’s forces. II Samuel 18:1-8

Day 14- 11.-David’s son is killed. II Samuel 18:9-15

.

The punishment outlined by Nathan (II Samuel 12:7-15) was immediate at least in the lifetime of David. The sad part of David’s sin was that he would forever be marked as the man who took Uriah’s wife. When the account of Abijam’s reign in Judah is given in the book of 1 Kings it says: “Because David did what was right in the sight of the LORD, and had not turned aside from anything that He commanded him all the days of his life, except in the case of Uriah the Hittite” (I Kings 15:5). The consequence of sin remained.If these consequences seem overwhelming we need only ne reminded of the many  modern day  consequences.

.

David’s incontinence had consequences far beyond his lifetime. His children inherited his character flaws. Amnon raped his half-sister, and for this was killed by his brother Absalom. Because of David’s weakness of character, he could not discipline Absalom, and Absalom rebelled. Solomon shared his father’s lack of sexual restraint and introduced idolatry into Israel by his foreign wives. Israel was punished for this idolatry by the division of the kingdom, by the disappearance of the Northern Kingdom, and by the Babylonian Exile. The compilers of the Pentateuch saw the same flaws at work at the beginning of human history, when Adam followed his wife into disobedience rather than obeying the law of the Most High

.

   Because God is holy, He cannot accept what is evil into His presence and fellowship. Thus, ALL MEN are under one verdict.Sin brings curses! You cannot sin deliberately without reaping the consequences of your actions.he had to live with the curse he had brought upon his family and his nation also by his actions. We do not live in a vacuum – our sins always have an impact on the lives of others.  Exodus 32:33 Romans 5:12  Romans 6:23A

.

A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. ‘Be gracious to me, Elohim, according to Your loving-kindness, according to the multitude of Your tender mercies; blot out my transgressions.
‘Wash me completely from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
‘For I know my transgressions; and my sin is ever before me.
‘Against You, You only, I have sinned, and done evil in Your eyes’ that You might be justified in Your speaking and be clear when You judge.
‘Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.
‘Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts; and in the hidden parts You teach me wisdom.
‘Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
‘Cause me to hear joy and gladness; the bones You have crushed will rejoice.
‘Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
‘Create in me a clean heart, Elohim; and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
‘Do not cast me out from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
‘Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.
‘I will teach transgressors Your ways; and sinners will turn back to You.
‘Deliver me from the guilt of shedding blood, Elohim, Elohay of my salvation; my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
‘Adonai, open my lips and my mouth shall declare Your praise.
‘For you do not desire sacrifice, or I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering.
‘The sacrifices of Elohim are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, Elohim, You will not despise.
Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem.
‘Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole offering; then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.’ ” Psalm 51:1-19
.
 
Next King David endured with understanding the chastisement he received for the sins he committed with Bathsheba and against her husband Uriah the Hittite; and he repented and turned back to God with his whole heart. Next also  three of his sons continued transgressing the Word of God too , which sadly cost them their lives AND BROUGHT GREAT PAIN TO KING DAVID TOO.
.
 
Psalms 19:
7    The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8    The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9    The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10    More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11    Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12    Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13    Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14    Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
