The reality

God wants you to worship him daily at home and also with others

.
I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and heaven without hell.” [William Booth]

IT IS TRAGIC  THAT  SOME PERSONS STILL  DID NOT LIVE A FULL CHRISTIAN LIFE AND NEXT DIED..

.
The People with an empty, imposturous Christian spiritual life generally still turn to a simplified Old Testament version gospel, practice and not a real New Testament based Gospel for they even turn to idolatry to wrongfully try to compensate for their definite void, guilt feelings, their failure to reach, acquire a deeper Holy Sprit led, filled, spiritual life in Christ…. They practice idolatry instead and now falsely promote, do encourage the worship of men, prophecy, creeds, denominations, history, doctrines, things, places, books, videos, rather most anyhting over solely worshipping now God, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus. The devil leads them into this. Truly Jesus Christ does not talk to ythem and they never were fully baptized with the holy spirit as many of us here were..

Luk 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. 25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. 26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

Cor 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 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.

UN CONFESSED AND UN REPENTED SINS ALL ARE STILL NO LAUGHING MATTER EVEN IF YOU DO CLAIM TO BE A CHRISTIAN NOW TOO..

.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: :2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. :4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

.HEAVEN IS OUR HOME AND NOT THE WORLD

James 4:4 (King James Version) Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

.

1 John 2:15-17 (King James Version) 15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

.

John 15:19 (King James Version) If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

.

Exodus 20;4,5 (King James Version) 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:  5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; My opinion- (If you love Him and doing what He expects of us you don’t half to worry,because when you turn the word hate to love this verse is not mean for you)

.

Deuteronomy 5:8-9 (King James Version) 8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: 9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate him.

.

CAN ANYONE REALLY IMAGINE JESUS CHRIST BEING A HYPOCRITE, LYING, STEALING, CHEATING, COMMITTING ADULTERY, GETTING DRUNK, TAKING POT, DRUGS.. NEVER!
PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOADS OF SIN TO HIDE LIE WHEN THEY SAY YOU CANNOT JUDGE THEM OR OTHERS https://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/03/06/didnt-god-instruct-christians-not-to-judge-any-others-or-non-christians/

Knowing Hebrew or Greek and-or their history, heritage is not essential for all Christians,

Galatians 3: 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? … 7 Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.” 9 So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham. …26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise..

Now where in the New Testament does it even say you have to know Hebrew, or Judaism, the Jewish  culture or the Old Testament even  to be a Christian now? It does not..
.
Do you know Jesus the Christ, the one anointed with the Holy Spirit and who can baptize you with the Holy Spirit.

There are too many professing Christians persons now also lying to the Jews, trying to get their favor, by claiming they do now accept the inapplicable to Christians the  old Jewish traditions, cultures, dishonst Evangelical persons thus who are trying to convert the Jews to Christianity, etc., rather. God will not bless this approach because it is based on lies..

All Jewish religious practices still are contrary to teaching of the New Testament, to Christianity, which clearly states that God does not accept the Jewish religion as a valid religion anymore. All Jews have to give up Judaism and to accept solely Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal savior and they become Christians now only. The Bible says there are no longer no Jews or Gentiles in heaven but only Christians, they are one in Christ

Now still even from the first centuary, there are too many, many false persons pushing falsely Judaism and it’s value on Christians, even the cults and also   Jewish persons now too..  but none of them are from God.. 

JUDAISM AS A RELIGION NOW EVEN IS DEAD TO GOD, JESUS CHRIST.

Also   there are almost no historial documents available world wide or only a handful at the time of Christ.. so who realy now knows what Jesus did, wore, ate, dressed like, bsides the New Testament.. .. no one .. so forget these false Jewish cultural teachings, bondages..  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2012/05/27/my-hearts-desire-and-prayer-to-god-also-is-for-israel-to-be-saved/

.

Jer 8:7 KJV) Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.

.

ALL PERSONS, JEWS AND GENTILES DO ALSO HAVE TO SEE THE SIGNIFCANCE OF THE UNDENIABLE CHANGES JESUS CHRIST HAS MADE TO JUDAISM, THE WORLD, AND TO OUR CALENDARS AS WELL EVEN TO DATE, 2012 AD YEARS AFTER THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST!

.

Most people who know Greek, Hebrew still do not know God and why is that? The same People who are not holy Spirit led still canot understand the Bible..  Man cannot know God if God does not reveal himself.. It is their own unconfessed sin that seperates them still from God, his love and his truths.

.

Real Christians who know and follow the New Testament do know that there are no Jews any longer in Heaven but only Christians..

,

The new Jerusalem is soley  for the bride of Christ, the Christian church as well

,

 (Rev 21:2 KJV)  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

,

(Rev 21:9 KJV)  And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

,

(Rev 22:17 KJV)  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.  

,

John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. John 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. 15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall show it unto you. The holy spirit alone is the ultimate teacher who is to leads, guide us, teach us in all truth.. but the devil will falsely try to distract from that truth , from God, Jesus Christ.

.

Some of the ways he does that he the devil lies to you still is that he and his followers also do try to tell you you cannot understand the new testament without knowing Greek or you cannot understand the whole Bible without know Hebrew..

Jesus never now did say that when the Greek and Hebrew arrive it will lead you into all truth.. for that is absurd, and a lie, a great distortion, divertion of Jesus teachings now too…

.

1 Th 2:14  For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: 15  Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:

.

Gal 2:12  For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision. 13  And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation. 14  But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?

.

Gal 1:13  For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: 14  And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers. 15  But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,  Note this God sperated Paul from hus Jewish Mother’s womb so he was no longer a Jew now..

.

2 Cor 11:24  Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.

.

 1 Cor 9:20  And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;

.

Aposlte Paul NEXT AGAIN  tried to become as a Jew, he did not return to be a Jew rather

.

(1 Cor 12:13 KJV)  For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

.

(Gal 3:28 KJV)  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.

.

(Col 3:11 KJV)  Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

.

so do not give me crap about any Christians, God, Jesus  being now also a Jew..

.

Your boss Jesus  was a Jew, a Jewish carpenter, but he is no longer a religious Jew. . Being a Jew is more than the Jewish  religion? It is also a bloodline?  but Jesus destroyed the Jewish temple and all of it’s records so no one  no professing Jew today can prove they are the original ethnic Jews.. not one.. Christianity negates the fundamentals of Jewish faith, and one who accepts it rejects the very essence of Judaism. Even if he continues to keep all of the rituals, it is the same as if he abandoned Judaism completely.   A Jew who accepts Christianity might call himself a `Jewish Christian,’ but he is no longer a Jew. He can no longer even be counted as part of a Jewish Congregation. When the non-Jewish world makes the claim that one who was Jewish but converts to Christianity can retain the “Jewish Culture and Ethnicity,” one must ask, “Which Jewish Culture? Which Jewish Ethnicity?” The culture and ethnicity of a Jew from Morocco has little in common with the ethnicity and culture of a Jew from Eastern Europe. Yet both are Jews because their faith, their Jewish theology, their Jewish Belief System, their Judaism is the same.   And just as many people convert to Judaism, and thus become Jews, those Jews who convert to another faith are no longer Jews. Remember, the Jews determine who is a Jew, and not ex-Jews who have become Christians, and not Christians who are Jewish-wannabees. The Jews today determine for themselves, who is a Jew. The Jews in general  no longer consider Jesus as being a Jew and they are undeniably waiting for an other Jewish Messiah. Many people, Christians and some Jews , Messianic ones as well, erroneously believe that   one can also be Jewish and Christian. It is not true. The Jews are not a race but a relgion, There is no genetic code passed from either mother or father to the child that makes that child a Jew. Genetics might indicate that one’s ancestors were Jews, but that does not, in fact, make one a Jew. Even if all, or some, of the genetic code in a child proved to be of Jewish origin, that would not make the child a Jew. Jewish law determines who is a Jew, and Jewish law is quite clear. If a person’s mother is a Jew, and that person has not converted to another faith, then that person will be considered fully Jewish, so long as that person wishes to identify solely as a relgious jew.. Jesus Christ is not a Jew thus now even if he may have been one ….

.

Furthermore It is absolutely undeniable that both Judaizers and Jews are trying falsely to make us think we need to be Jewish to fully appreciated God and Jesus and the main reasons for this is 1: they want to turn us away from the Christian Faith to the Jewish faith.. and the second main reasons is that they want us falsely to support the false religious holy wars of Israel today.. http://?wittnessed.wordpress.com/?2012/02/07/?jews-israel-arabs-and-jesus?-christ-the-bible/

What it boils down to is that modern rebels wish to change the names of God, eliminate them, malign them, and assimilate them into false religions. These rebels usual return to the Old Testament law (which they only do in words, not deeds), replaces repentance and rebirth. Conversion, repentance, and living by Christian standards all now has been replaced by using a mantra that is based upon using a “corrected” name of God, and a “corrected” name of Jesus. What is amusing is that those who make a big deal out of it while still calling themselves Bible-believers almost all of them generally know about as much about Hebrew as the average Australian aborigine knows about Lithuanian.. more scholarly pretense is what it is too..

“Now three questions addressed to those Christians who abuse God’s word by perverting the name of God. (1) Why would you allow yourself to be influenced by Bible-scoffers who treat the Bible as a book of mythology instead of as Scripture? (2) Where did you get the authority to change both the English and Hebrew texts of the Bible when neither one of them is ambiguous in the least? (3) Do you think that God is going to honor you for doing so? As forall those of you who choose to continue to slander the Lord now that you can no longer claim ignorance”

Also even Yahwah Apostolic Ministries IS A SERIOUS DEMONIC CULT THAT DENIES JESUS OF HIS DEITY ,,,HIS DIVINE NATURE ..THEY ARE SABBATH LAW KEEPERS ..THEY USE OLD TESTAMENT WORDING IN THE NEW TESTAMENT ..THE VERY THING PAUL PREACHED AGAINST IMAGINE THIS JESUS CHRIST, Yahweh? For there is one God, and ONE MEDIATOR between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.1 Timothy 2:5 (Acts 4:12 KJV) Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. … (Rom 10:13 KJV) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Mat 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. 34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. :36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. Mat 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. :38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. 40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. IMAGINE THAT SOME PERSONS CLAIMING EVEN TO BE BORN FROM ABOVE CHRISTIANS THEY DO NOT WANT TO BE RIDCULED OR PERSECUTED SO THEY DO NOT USE THE TERM JESUS CHRIST FOR GOD.. BUT FALSELY USE ALTERNATIVES.. Who is Yahweh? IT IS STILL a false cult..

It is generally agreed that the historical Jesus primarily spoke Aramaic,[1] perhaps along with some Hebrew and Greek (although there is some debate as to the degree[2]). The towns of Nazareth and Capernaum, where Jesus lived, were primarily Aramaic-speaking communities, although Greek was widely spoken in the major cities of the Eastern Mediterranean such as Antioch and Alexandria. Jesus may have also known enough Hebrew to discuss the Hebrew Bible, and he may have known Koine Greek through commerce in nearby Sepphoris. Aramaic, as a Semitic language, was a common language of the Eastern Mediterranean during and after the Neo-Assyrian, Neo-Babylonian, and Achaemenid Empires (722 BC – 330 BC). Aramaic remained a common language of Palestine in the 1st century AD, despite the subsequent Macedonian-Greek (331 BC) and Roman (63 BC) invasions. Indeed, in spite of the increasing importance of Greek, the use of Aramaic was also expanding, and it would eventually be entirely dominant among Jews both in Palestine and elsewhere in the Middle East around 200 AD;[3] it would remain so until the Arab conquest in the 7th century. Most of the apostles from the Galilee region also spoke Aramaic. The message of Christianity spread (primarily among Jewish Aramaic-speaking enclaves) throughout Judaea, Syria and Mesopotamia, and even to Kerala, India in Aramaic (or Syriac; Aram is the Hebrew word for Syria).[8] http://en.wikipedia.org/?wiki/Aramaic_of_Jesus

THE HEBREW LANGUAGE AT THE TIME OF JESUS FOR ALL PURPOSES DIDN’T EXIST? It is a documented fact that when the Ten Tribes of Joseph, known as “Israel or Ephraim,” were taken into “captivity” in c.800 BCE by Assyria, they ceased to exist as a seperate people because they lost their use of their Aramaic/Hebrew language and their sense of Israelite tribal identity. http://home.earthlink.net/?~ecorebbe/id45.htmlThank 

 Those holding such views as the Hebrew names of God only should be used do firstly and  falsely think that Hebrew was the language of Jesus and His disciples, and thus of the original New Testament manuscripts. Thus, they say, the original New Testament used the words Yahweh and Yeshua, and so should we. That is what they want you to believe..but that is a lie in itself now.. I believe this avoidance of saying His Name the name of Jesus Christ in effect treating His Name as if it were of heathen, or pagan origins, is now also demonic . Clearly look at the historical facts here.. New Testament was not written in the classical Greek of the intelligentsia of that day. Instead, it was written in Aramaic or Koine, or common, Greek, the universal language spoken by many of the common people throughout the Roman Empire. The New Testament calls Jesus Iesous (the Greek form for Yeshua), and it calls God Theos (“God”) and Kurios (“Lord”). If the New Testament writers could use appropriate Koine Greek words to refer to God and Christ, surely it must be permissible for us to use appropriate English words to refer to them too.. but there is much more here.. Aramaic first appears in Scripture as a language distinct from Hebrew in Genesis 31:47. In Palestine in Jesus’ day, Aramaic had replaced Hebrew as the language of speech. Aramaic, not Hebrew, was the language Jesus used in everyday speech: Might it be possible that when Jesus spoke in Aramaic, He always used the Hebrew pronunciation for the names of God? Such a speculation would be more difficult to prove than the false idea that the entire New Testament was written in Hebrew.

Our loyalty for the name of God should be more concerned with the character the word represents than with the pronunciation of the word itself. Aaron’s feast to Yahweh in Exodus 32:5 was really a feast to Satan. What made the crucial difference was not the pronunciation of the name of God; it was the character of the deity being worshipped. We might be using the right pronunciation of the name, but if our Yahweh is more like the Zeus of the Greeks than the Yahweh of Scripture, we are worshipping a false god.

You really are being deceived.. when you deal and talk further to these people as i have often now too you find out that they do next hold many theological views that totally contradict the Bible now too.. Many Christians have been terribly and rightfully dismayed, confused by this false, sudden explosion of people claiming to worship “Yahweh” as God, the father and “Yeshua” as Jesus Christ. People who speak and write English all of sudden insist on only using the Hebrew names.. and what else do they insists on.. did you not notice that they omit the title Christy.. and that is very very significant as well.. what does Christ realy stand for and mean now?   https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/09/13/there-are-always-two-forces-in-the-world/ those who serve the devil and those who serve God  

Many Christians have been terribly and rightfully dismayed, confused by this false, sudden explosion of people claiming to worship “Yahweh” as God, the father and “Yeshua” as Jesus Christ. My reaction to it all the alarm bells go off immediately when people call my savior by some other name. These people are demonic. They and the Judaizers, Jews serve the devil and not Jesus Christ “My main concern though was (and remains) the fact that the influence of the Jews of Galatians 2 who tried to compel Gentiles to voluntarily go under the Law which is completely against the gospel. Once you’ve allowed them to substitute the name “Yeshua” for Jesus you’ve started on a slippery road into deep deception. Satan is so subtle.” . But that is what it is all about.. Let no one deceive you here..And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:23..

(Acts 4:12 KJV) Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

(Rom 10:13 KJV) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

This movement to alter God’s name with absolutely nothing that resembles scriptural, textual, or linguistic support, has misled huge numbers of Christians into denying the Bible and accepting the work of Bible-scoffing atheists who have dominated the academic field of biblical studies since the mid-nineteenth century.  The common myth  that there are no vowels expressed in the Hebrew text… This is a convenient line of nonsense for those who want to change the text to fit their own views, but it is a dishonest line. Elaborate diacritic marks, called pointing by English-speaking Hebrew scholars, provide extensive information for vowels, doubled letters, stops, and other phonological features. Bible “correctors” are either DELIBERATE ignorant of this fact or they lie,  pretend that they do not exist.   Not only do these biblical detractors deny God’s promise to forever preserve his word, every jot and tittle, but they open the door for Bible manipulation that has no other criteria than personal judgment or fancy. If we are to deny the Masoretic reading we can do no end of mischief to the text by inserting our own vowels, doubled letters, and stops. This allows us to change positives into negatives, passives into actives and vice versa, statement verbs into causative verbs and vice versa, to convert verbs into nouns and vice versa, and to even change the entire meaning of the verb itself.  Suggestions to alter the text is a common method of attacking the Bible that has been employed by Bible-scoffing scholars in academia for over 100 years, The practice is taught and encouraged by those who consider the Bible to be mythology or hate Jesus Christ.

Ministers

 
The CANADIAN conservative federal government itself rarely it seems takes the proper lead, leadership now too. Prime Minister Stephen  Harper has never formed a majority government yet Canada’s prime Minister himself Stephen  Harper,  Harper has been drooling for his majority now for many  years, the leader claims to have a majority government and he now disregards the majority of the Members of Parliament, and the citizens of Canada’s wishes, desires too,  he is still  running his minority Parliament as if he were the leader of a majority, tends to bury religious beliefs to win a hopeful real majority government not surprisingly thus  failed again in an attempt to  win a majority government.  As we are well aware, mo one is are not going to form a majority federal government with the majority support of the citizens of both Quebec and Ontario also now. You next cannot hope to have a majority government as Harper keeps on finding by failing to look after the good welfare of all the citizens of Canada. Beating on minorities really doesn’t make a majority government more   possible.
 
Over the last Half of century I have met and have personally dealt with many elected ministers, pastors, politicians, administrators and they tend to be generally in 2 separate camps, the good and the bad.. Mind you some crooks are not that easy to spot at first glance. But if you look for it you can often notice that the bad persons tend to the same same bad things consistently.. such as gossiping, slandering others, or cheating, lying, stealing , tax evasion, adultery, drunkenness, etc.. Now here is where someone can say we are not to judge others for God alone is the judge and will judge them on the last day.. by the same persons who seem to know very little about any other parts of the Bible.. such as judging instead the others righteously and not superficially.. so  dream on.. otherwise why would we have a need for jail these days.. .. Now I have many met a bad pastor who preached we are not to judge them as well, especially when they need to be now judged and rebuked.. (Rev 3:19 KJV)  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
 
(John 7:24 KJV)  Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
 
(Luke 6:37 KJV)  Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
 
(Luke 6:38 KJV)  Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
 
(Luke 6:39 KJV)  And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
 
(Mat 7:1 KJV)  Judge not, that ye be not judged.
 
(Mat 7:2 KJV)  For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
 
(Mat 7:3 KJV)  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
 
(Mat 7:4 KJV)  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?
 
(Mat 7:5 KJV)  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.

Pride leads to destruction and humility to honour.. What motivates many persons these days?

All prideful persons who worship the false God of self will find themselves next in dishonor rather. Are you Proud or Humble?  “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18 
 
When your life and your heart and your mind are not grounded in the sovereignty and the ways of God, your emotions will be often subject to the false fear of men, and their acts.
 
When you rightfully rather  trust in God’s sovereign control and direction and protection in your life, when you trust that He knows what He’s doing and that He is orchestrating all the events of your life, this universe to accomplish His purposes,  his Providence, when your life is grounded in providence, you will not be at the mercy of those happenings in your life. Your life will be solidly grounded in God’s good will and protection.
 
Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as a green herb. Psalm 37:1-2
 
Humility is defined as the state or quality of being humble; the absence of pride. Humility is one of the three things the Lord requires of us.
 
1  Micah 6:8 And what does the LORD require of you But to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God? NKJV
2  Proverbs 15:33 …Before honor is humility. NKJV
3  Proverbs 16:19 Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. NKJV
4  Proverbs 27:2 Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips. NKJV

I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” NKJV

A Common  Loser’s Strategy is asking others to  Look at me! Notice me. See who I am! Pay attention to me.   I am great!  I AM THE GREATEST! Worship me, Praise me. Losers worship the false god of self. A Common  Loser’s Strategy is also to Seek Revenge. Too often in life I have met too many a proud, perverse, dictatorial manager, administrators, actually slave drivers,  who gets often  upset. do pout that others that do not cower in fear, do not submit absolute reverence under their feet. They now have set themselves up for severe  disappointment or heartache or failure in their lives. Years later I met some of these same people unemployed, even destitute and broke.. Many of us want to succeed but at what costs, at the false costs of others? For too many persons Power is intoxicating? Some bad persons they now  get a little power and they falsely do think  can be abusive with it.  they  get a little control and thy also get greatly manipulate. they tend to want all things done  their way and they try to manipulate and maneuver others, to get these people to do the things they  want done, for  they are   a bully, just like Haman who used his power falsely to bully the people around him. Dream on they are heading for a rude awakening. Their Bitterness is a wasted life.

Pride is thinking we are better or more important than others, or than we really are. We are told to allays avoid pride and to be dressed rather in humility. Proud people do not like to do good things for others. Only for themselves. PRIDE IS often also presumptuous, paranoiac,  and DELUSIONAL!  Roosters, Peacock, a bull, and a pig are often symbols of pride. 
   

Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought . . .Honor one another above yourselves . . . Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. (Romans 12:3,10,16)

(Isa 66:3 KJV) He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.

(Ezek 6:13 KJV) Then shall ye know that I am the LORD, when their slain men shall be among their idols round about their altars, upon every high hill, in all the tops of the mountains, and under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.

(Psa 35:13 KJV) But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.

It seems that many people, professing Christians included now, tend to personally only seek God only when they have serious needs, problems or they do want something really bad and next when the problem is solved, or they got what they wanted, they next often tend to, do seem to forget about God again? But even all Christians now still do have major problems in life.. for there is a real devil who troubles us personally all of our life and we we are to resist him in the faith.. True happiness cannot be in reality achieved without having a continual, personal relationship with God here on earth and us continually knowing and following solely his will of our life too, instead of Idols.    Why is God jealous of idols before us? well it means he is envious for our own good.. he strives for all things to be our good… What idols? what ever replaces God is an idol.. what ever you falsely worship as substitute for God. And it can be drugs, booze, sex, or your wife, son , daughter, a persons, car,  self, even your church, your pastor, your denomination, your own doctrines, beliefs, your culture, your nationality … for we all had or  have a god shaped vacuum in our life.. but  filling it with extremes or  false substitutes, junk will never be acceptable to God. Never. If you still do have a God shaped vacuum that is unfilled, then no other things, no relationships or careers, goals, next will satisfy you, not even any personal, social, community relationships, acts.  Hey I also have learned long time ago that merely telling the truth to some people will not work, they have their false idols, false lies they still want to handle, and they will take the Ostrich approach to the truth, but hopefully the truth will next still help some people. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2012/02/05/you-can-have-no-idols-before-god-ever/
(Psa 118:9 KJV) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
.
(Psa 146:3 KJV) Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
The LORD rightfully is my shepherd.. not man… (Lev 19:4 KJV) Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the LORD your God.(Lev 26:1 KJV) Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.

And No idols includes one’s pastor, one’s denomination, religious club… Man’s best is too often just more hatred, murder, abuse…. 70 percent of today’s pastors are also crooked cause they are ungodly, unsaved hirelings, wolves in sheep clothing, not called by God pastors trying to make money, a career of the ministry.. this is unacceptable… that is why they too readily do lie, counsel divorce, slander, abuse others.

 

The revisionists

 
In the Western  world today, too many Christians dare not walk openly or share their faith “for fear of the Jews” and others , but not all of them.
 
 (Prov 28:1 KJV)  The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
 
Many of those  liberals, Conservatives  who control the media already do  know that most people are lazy, fearful persons. So the media is more powerful than any bomb.
 
This is why these foolish virgin have no oil in their lamps, and why nearly all who claim to be religious, even  too many Jews or Christians merely do have a second-hand religion based on rather men’s false teachings, on the media and denominational propaganda, and basically not on the Bible truth.
 
 Because of this, and due to slothfulness, many propagandists are able to persuade men by psychology, lies into believing falsehoods. The original sin, that is, Eve’s unbelief in God’s unchanging Word, resulted in an agreement  with the Serpent, the devil, the anti Christ (Genesis 2:17; 3:1-15).
 
So God placed “enmity” between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of Adam and the conflict continues today as well.
 
Today too often Education, religion, the mass media and entertainment have been hijacked and  are too often programmed as instruments of false “thought control” and “mind manipulation” as a result.
 
Study and read the Bible   yourself. The Worship of false men, false news media, false gods and false religions is still not acceptable before God:  Apostle Paul clearly made the decision to follow Jesus alone in all that he did, living by faith now too. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/01/09/and-who-do-you-follow-jesus-or/
 
“Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me”  Exodus 20:5
  
“And because I tell you the truth, you believe me not”, John 8:44-45). Jesus (rebuked the Pharisees of His day, saying,) (John 8:44 KJV)  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45  And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46    Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47   He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
 
(Mat 23:33 KJV)  Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? 34   Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 35  That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. 36  Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. 37   O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38   Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39  For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
 
“But unto you who fear My Name will the Sun of righteousness (or Light of the world) arise with healing in His beams and you shall go forth, and grow up joyfully as calves let loose from the stall to green pasture. And you shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I do this, says the Lord of hosts”. (John 8:12; Isaiah 60:19-22; Revelation 21:2-3,23);
 
(Deu 12:2 KJV)  Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree: 4 And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.
 
Furthermore it should be evident to many people that too many persons still do cut and paste, chose Bible verse they like and cut out , they falsely do reject the ones they do not like, misunderstand  and/or try to rewrite the Bible to suit their own liking, they re-interpret Bible verses  for their own purposes, they mpw are false revisionists.
 
“Moses said, Let them that hate God flee before Him. All the workers of iniquity shall be scattered. And when the Ark of the Covenant rested, he said, Return, O Lord, to the many thousands of Israel” (Numbers 10:35-36).
 
(2 Cor 6:17 KJV)  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18   And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
 
(2 Cor 7:1 KJV)  Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
 
 
Why did God in the past now make the Jews kill everyone in the promised land?
– Israel at war was often instructed when dealing with enemies who were brutal to kill all including women and children. This was to prevent vengeance uprisings, such as this. While Joab killed most, he did not kill all, and Hadad, son of the King of Edom who was slain, flees to a foreign country and grows strong and comes back.
– Solomon committed sin against Israel God and himself by marrying foreign wives.
– Solomon committed sin against Israel, God, and himself by allowing his wives heretical worship
– Solomon committed sin against Israel, God and himself by worshipping (vs5) Ashtoreth (Ishtar) god of the Zidonians and Milcom, the “abomination of the Ammonites”. This brings the wrath of God on his nation.
– Solomon actually weakens Israel by these alliances, although for the generation at hand it looks as though they are being built up militarily. God forbid allainces.
Some say that  ” God didn’t just allow it but he wanted it to happen. .
 
The culture of the inhabiting population was so horrendous and irreparable that utter destruction was the only means to get rid of its influence.  For example, it was standard practice for children to be sacrificed in fire to a deity named Molech (archaeological evidence supports this). That type of belief was inculcated into every aspect of their civilization, and there was no way to excise it without destroying the civilization with it, so that was what was done.  As if burning children to death in fire wasn’t bad enough, they also performed numerous other horrendous acts, almost too many to enumerate here.  Notice, they not only destroyed the people, but the buildings in the cities too. The art and architecture, in and on the buildings, was similarly influential of their belief system, and as such needed to be destroyed.” “The apostasies of the Israelites in the times of the Judges were derived from misalliances of the Israelites with the daughters of the Canaanites (Judges 3:6). The fall of Solomon and the apostasy of the people that followed, came from his connection with “strange wives,” ‘nokriy’ or Serpent’s seed (I Kings 11:1). The ten Northern tribes sunk into the worship of Baal in consequence of Ahab’s union with the Sidonian Jezebel whose horrible significance has its antitype in the Roman Catholic church of the Dark Ages (I Kings 16:31; Revelation 2:20-23). Ezra and Nehemiah after the return from the Captivity knew of no other way to secure their people against a new degeneracy, than by contending earnestly against foreign marriages with the Serpent’s seed.  On learning of the destruction of Jericho and Ai, by the Jews,  the Cainite kings formed an alliance to fight Israel. But wily men of Gibeon, “resorted to deception, sending ambassadors to Joshua wearing worn-out clothing; old, patched shoes, and with old sacks upon their asses, dry, patched wineskins; and dry mouldy bread. Arriving at the camp of Israel at Gilgal, these Hivites said, We come from a far country to make an agreement of peace with you.”  Failing to consult the Lord, Joshua was deceived. He made a pact with the accursed Hivites, and when the deception was discovered Joshua failed to obey God’s unchanging command but made the Hivites hewers of wood and drawers of water. In time they assumed Israel’s name, birthright and Covenant, and debased his religion by “making the Word of God of none effect through their traditions.” Then together with Israel they helped to murder our Messiah (Joshua 8-9; Malachi 1:1-5; Mark 7:13). ” 
 
  
Thus the Jews smote all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, and slaughter, and destruction, and did what they would unto those that hated them.  Esther 9:1-16 (KJV).
 

Now  those who attacked the Jews were aware they would be resisted with force, the majority were probably Amalekites. A blind and devilish hatred for the Jews drove them to attack in an insane attempt to destroy them forever. And  two facts about what took place speak loudly: (1) they were instructed to kill all their enemies–including women and children (Est.8:11, above), and (2) that the Jews universally rejected taking their possessions as the spoils of war leads me to believe God prompted them to obey completely what Saul and the army of Israel failed to do five hundred years earlier. Our God is totally Sovereign in the affairs of men and He quite literally allowed the Amalekites, souls living in spiritual darkness, a grace period before final judgment fell. The all-but complete slaughter by the army of Israel should have been a “wake-up call,” but they did not repent of their wickedness. And when opportunity presented itself, they eagerly sought to harm the apple of God’s eye–Israel (Deut.32:10; Zech.2:8).  Amalek was Esau’s grandson. He was born to Timna the concubine of Eliphaz, Esau’s son. And Esau, if you will recall, had a twin brother Jacob who was born second, thereby missing out on the inheritance rights of the firstborn. So to make a long story short, Esau was a profane person (Heb.12:16) who could not care less about the spiritual headship responsibilities of his birthright. He literally sold that birthright to Jacob for a bowl of pottage (beans) and in doing so, demonstrated the darkness of his heart. Throwing away that blessed priviledge set in motion a chain of events that continues to this very day, because other descendants of Esau continue to have conflict with the offspring of Jacob (Israel).

Isaiah Chapter 26: 13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem. 
 
“When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” Isaiah 59:19.
“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble:” Joel 2:1.
“And the Lord shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord God shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south.” Zechariah 9:14.
“The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the Lord of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.” Isaiah 13:4.

 

(2 Chr 14:11 KJV)  And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee. 12   So the LORD smote the Ethiopians before Asa, and before Judah; and the Ethiopians fled. 13    And Asa and the people that were with him pursued them unto Gerar: and the Ethiopians were overthrown, that they could not recover themselves; for they were destroyed before the LORD, and before his host; and they carried away very much spoil. 14  And they smote all the cities round about Gerar; for the fear of the LORD came upon them: and they spoiled all the cities; for there was exceeding much spoil in them. 15  They smote also the tents of cattle, and carried away sheep and camels in abundance, and returned to Jerusalem.

(Rev 22:18 KJV)  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19    And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Let it be clear: Criticism of Israel is not anti-Semitic, and saying so is wrong, But singling Israel out for selective condemnation and opprobrium — let alone denying its right to exist or seeking is destruction — is discriminatory and hateful, and not saying so is dishonest.” Ottawa Protocol

Today too often Education, religion, the mass media and entertainment have been hijacked and  are too often programmed as instruments of false “thought control” and “mind manipulation” as a result.  Study and read the Bible also  yourself.

It should be evident to any Bible reader that everything the Jews did was not God sanctioned even as chosen ones not even the Wars between the Jews and/or the Babylonians, Romans:

The Jews’ Great Revolt against Rome in 66 C.E. led to one of the greatest catastrophes in Jewish life and, in retrospect, clearly also has been a terrible mistake.

 During the summer of 70, the Romans breached the walls of Jerusalem, and initiated an orgy of violence and destruction. Shortly thereafter, they destroyed the Second Temple. This was the final and most devastating Roman blow against Judea. When people today speak of the almost two-thousand-year span of Jewish homelessness and exile, they are dating it from the failure of this revolt. http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/even-as-to-the-promised-land/

Less any one gets lost, there are Good Jews, Good Arabs, good Americans, good Canadians and bad ones too.   But it seems both Jews and Arabs are equally guilty of hate, unforgiveness, revenge, theft, murder, an eye for an eye approach  so we can realy not support either side as being mainly in the right   http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/11/18/jews-arabs-none-of-them-politically-correct/

CANADA’S PRIME MINISTER’S STEPHEN HARPER’S ONE SIDED SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL OVER PALESTINE CLEARY TO GET THE JEWISH VOTES IS IMMORAL as well.    http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/06/16/what-the-canadian-conservatives-do-not-say-about-israel/

 

Heaven awaits the Jewish return TO God, Jesus Christ, and rather NOT TO THE PROMISED EARTHLY LAND

Chaneling

(Eccl 1:2 KJV)  Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
 
 (Eccl 1:9 KJV)  The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

Face it basic life is dull, boring, monstrous often too, and so many people seek an edge, an escape, a simple alternative that others do not have supposedly that will let them live on a higher plane. For these often proud people the old fashion, simple gospel of the fact that God, who is Jesus Christ as well, has died personally for all your sins, and you can now be forgiven for all of your sins and next go to heaven if you continue to obey God and do his will is too difficult for them. They still want an easy, instant, quick serve McDonald Gospel. Too any cults now even too readily allow them such alternatives even the cults such as Jehovah Witnesses, Latter Days Saints, Seventh Day Adventist , New Age Movements and others now .

WHERE THERE IS A GENUINE THERE IS OFTEN ALSO A FALSE COUNTERFEIT.

How do you Know if the Spirit Talking to you is Good and not Evil? iS IT REALLY GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT OR THE DEVIL NOW? http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2009/01/21/does-god-speak-to-you/  

Just like there is good and bad food, poisonous food that will kill you so there is also good and evil sprits, good spirits we tend to call angels AND bad spirits we tend to call demons BUT MANY PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE HERE YET TOO. “But the Spirit [the Holy Spirit] explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons…” (1 Tim. 4:1).

“…for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” (2 Cor. 11:14).

(1 John 4:1 KJV) Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

(1 John 4:2 KJV) Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

(1 John 4:3 KJV) And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

(1 John 4:4 KJV) Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

PRIDE AND HE LACK OF LOVE TOWARDS OTHERS ARE A VERY CLEAR INDICATION OF A BAD SPIRIT

(1 John 4:11 KJV) Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

(1 John 4:15 KJV) Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

(1 John 4:16 KJV) And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Channeling used to be known as spiritualism WHICH IS DEFINITELY STILL A FORBIDDING, OCCULT PRACTICE!

(Deu 18:10 KJV) There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

(2 Ki 17:17 KJV) And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

(Jer 14:14 KJV) Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.

(Ezek 12:24 KJV) For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.

(Ezek 13:6 KJV) They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.

(Ezek 13:7 KJV) Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken?

(Ezek 21:21 KJV) For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made his arrows bright, he consulted with images, he looked in the liver.

(Acts 16:16 KJV) And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:

In this practice OF channelling the person involved allows themselves to be taken over by entities which claim to be spirits of the dead, angels, deceased gurus or wise men, or even an alien beings. It is interesting to observe the consistent pattern that emerges in channeling from spirits, the deceased, and alien entities. Most messages speak of the following themes: reincarnation, and the teaching that humans are god’s. Jesus is usually seen a just a wise teacher who was one of many, and the Bible is usually regarded as untrustworthy. THAT ITSELF SHOULD TELL YOU HOW FALSE THESE SPIRITS NOW ARE. The lying  entities and Satanists do not believe we need a Savior since they claim they do not believe there is such a thing as sin to be saved from. But why do the entities have so much hesitancy when talking about Jesus, or even to simply ignore Him?

Just cause you may still now deny that evil spirits do  exist does not mean they do not exist. Loss of self control can still often lead to the possession of one’s soul by something, someone else. It is danger to surrender one’s will to anything, anyone else.

“They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet Him. This man lived in the tombs, and no-one could bind him any more, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No-one was strong enough to subdue him.” (Mark 5:1-4). “Some of the Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon possessed. They would say, “In the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you?” Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.” (Acts 19:13-16)

Crooks still in the church as well?

(Mark 14:21 KJV)  The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.
 
(Mat 26:14 KJV)  Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, 15  And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. 16  And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.
 
Many people have OFTEN conveyed to me that they are dismayed that there are  Crooks still  in the church as well? And they ask why the clearly bad pastors and bad pastors allow these crooks to remain in their midst.  Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you what you are like yourself now too.. Some  falsely seem to think that just cause a person  professes to be good person, a follower of Christ that he or she is to be believed now and that they  will do good and not bad.. How easily they also do forget about the Judas type persons, those persons who love money the root of all evil, and the things money can supposedly buy for them, sell themselves for money to the devil,  but their mostly stolen too money it does not buy permanent happiness for even them.. Nor do most people who win lotto find permanent happiness, but rather more misery it seems.
 
(John 12:3 KJV)  Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. 4  Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, 5  Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? 6  This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
 
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE TO BETRAY JESUS CHRIST TOO?
 
(Luke 17:1 KJV)  Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! 2   It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
 
If you encounter crooks in your Pentecostal, Baptist, Brethren, Catholic OR Protestant church now still, you are better off not to associate with them any more, for zebras do not change their stripes and  neither did Judas change now as well.
 
 
 
 I too often rightfully do not really worry about what is happening solely  in the world, but rather mainly what is happening in the Churches,  for judgment begins in the house of God. God is still coming for a church without spot and blemish. 
 
 Sadly in real life both God, Good and bad preachers coexist but presently the bad preachers seem to outnumber the good ones. No one is above the law, No one. Human rights abuse, Citizen abuse, substance abuse, tax payer’s money abuses, tax evasion,  abuse of the laws even by the Pastors, elders, deacons, church members, the police, civil and public servants,  professionals, accountants, lawyers, politicians, contractors, business persons, school teachers,  all  still need  to be fully exposed and prosecuted under the law too. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/06/24/no-one-is-above-the-law/ 
 
One of the worst things you can do is to think that such a person, spouse, relative, family member, pastor, politician is a nice guy, OR ANY INSTITUTION, CHURCH NOW AS WELL  and so it  is worth being worshipped, praised.. well cause very shortly God will show you really what even the person now is really like, a sinner like all the rest of us.. and the political party, organization, church you worshipped..  If you also do try to maintain you are a good person now as well, God will not let that false pride stand before him as well and he will show to you and many others what you really are still are like.. For God is a jealous God and will have no false  idols NOW before him.. God says without me you can do nothing, nothing good that will last permanently, that the canker worms will next not destroy as well.. I have seen so many good guys in my life, some have been my close good friends, but real life next showed to us all what they really were like next too.. sinners.   https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/09/07/sinners/
 
In reality many Pastors have wrongfully chosen their vocation, career as a money making job in fact, they thus are hirelings, or prostitutes for sale to me and I tell them so, whether they like it or not so they can repent,  change  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/08/23/to-the-bad-preacher/
 
Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the unrepentant  guilty persons per God will and standard serves everyone’s best interest.
 
(John 10:7 KJV)  Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12  But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13  The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14  I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15  As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
(Acts 20:28 KJV)  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
 
(1 Pet 5:2 KJV)  Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
 
(James 2:16 KJV)  And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
 
(Rev 2:4 KJV)  Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
 
(Rev 3:19 KJV)  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
 
for   thou shall  love thy neighbor as thyself always..
 
When the enemy comes in like a flood God will raise His standard.. and the enemy has already been within the gates of many churches for a long time. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/07/19/my-mission/
 
The last thing on my mind when I go to a new evangelical Christian church is that I will be abused, lied to, slandered, robbed, misused, persecuted  but sadly now too often these days that is not the reality. Why? https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/08/31/get-real-now/
 
 Specifically  Trinity Pentecostal church LaSalle, TPC   trinity@trinitymontreal.ca  , rrust@bellnet.ca ; and it’s pastors, pretentious elders, they call them deacons,  are merely another of those too common pretentious Christians Churches in name only. I have attended it many times too. They are more of a local religious social club,  and not a valid Christian gathering with  real personal Christian good deeds.. TPC they are part of the PAOC,  Pentecostal Assembly of Canada group, run it seems by by empire oriented hirelings, to provide economic support for their own pastors.. and they clearly are not here for the good welfare of the sheep. of the flock, their members, or attendees. While Jesus commanded his disciples to go into the world and make disciples of men, they now rather do use the opposite approach of asking you to go to their church, and of course to bring your money along with you for otherwise clearly you will not be welcomed. They do have a heavy false unbiblical emphasis of tithing, https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/secret-tithing/,  as an essential part of church membership, and it clearly and wrongfully seems it does not matter to them  if you behave next as a  non Christian you likely will not be displaced, disciplined  unless you do not give sufficient tithing to the church. I am totally convinced  that greed, and a real lack of real faith is why many preachers preach tithing, and I wonder if they do even fully practice it, do they even for a start give a portion of the tithe to the local poor people as also required in the laws of tithing in the old testament? I did not find many of them in TPC as being rather real Christians myself too. It seems to be often fleshly , men run and not Holy Spirit led too. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/01/09/and-who-do-you-follow-jesus-or/ ‘Let another man praise thee and not thyself.. and check if what is said is really so now too.. and all this now is nothing new as well. (Acts 20:31 KJV)  Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. 32  And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. 33  I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel. 34  Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me. 35  I have showed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/09/15/too-often-misleading-preachers/       If you can’t trust the chief shepherd, who can you trust?’  Yes, the Bad pastors, bad elders, continue to exist  cause likely their supporters are  bad too.  (Jer 5:31 KJV)  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will you do in the end?
 
It is also true that one can test the real spirituality of a preacher, any Christian is  as to how he responds to money, how he treats the salvation of the Jews, and also how he or she treats the poor people now too! (Judg 2:11 KJV)  And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim:    (Jer 9:14 KJV)  But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them:  (Gal 2:10 KJV)  Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.   (Mat 10:8 KJV)  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

 The free gospel is a Biblical fact!

(Rom 3:24 KJV)  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
 
 

Merry Christmas, Happy New year

Wishing you peace on earth, good will towards all men, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and all of your loved ones, friends, nieghbours too.

Isaiah 9
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Matthew 2: 
1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

Christmas marks Christ’s birthday and that it honors Him all while many falsely legalists, unloving and non Holy Spirit persons, still are  preaching the exact observation of the laws over honouring the spirit of the law..

and why do they want to insert the old testament falsely into the New Testament too?

And if obeying Religion can save one from then why was Jesus death required for us to be saved from Hell? The New Testament also does not prohibit pictures of Jesus nor our observing Christmas, Easter..

 

1 John 1: 
1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

John 1: 
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?
20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.
21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?
26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.
29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.
31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

 

Romans 14
11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

Philippians 2
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear

(Luke 14:25 KJV)  And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,

(Luke 14:26 KJV)  If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

(Luke 14:27 KJV)  And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

(Luke 14:28 KJV)  For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

(Luke 14:29 KJV)  Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,

(Luke 14:30 KJV)  Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.

(Luke 14:31 KJV)  Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?

(Luke 14:32 KJV)  Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.

(Luke 14:33 KJV)  So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

(Luke 14:34 KJV)  Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?

(Luke 14:35 KJV)  It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

(Mat 10:32 KJV)  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.
34  Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35  For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
37  He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
39  He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
40  He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
41  He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.
42  And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

Are you a real Christian, or a pretender, imposter still? The definition of a real Christian varies depending on who you talk to, and what type of church they attend as well.. but what did Jesus, the Apostles say a real Christian was, is? The devil even believes Jesus, God exists so what!! Being a Christian is more than your present personal head Knowledge, or beliefs, it is still a real, initial and personal experience with Jesus Christ like Apostle Paul had on the road to Damascus  http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2011/10/30/are-you-a-real-christian/

MANY CHRISTIANS YET  they have firstly not died to self as the Bible clearly says .. but rather soulishly, fleshly live for self

Tithing

 
I am totally convicted that greed, lack of real faith is why many preachers preach tithing, and I wonder if they practice it, do they even for a start give a portion of the tithe to the local poor people as also required in the laws of tithing in the old testament? and what about looking at all the verses on giving first in the new testament.
 
  • 1 For as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you: (2 Corinthians 9:1)
  • 2 For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath provoked very many.(2 Corinthians 9:2)

  • 11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God. (2 Corinthians 9:11)
  • 12 For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God; (2 Corinthians 9:12)
  • 13 Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men; (2 Corinthians 9:13)
  • 14 And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you. (2 Corinthians 9:14)

 Unleavened Bread Ministries

Greed and the Tithe

(From Hidden Manna by David Eells)

Paul gave Timothy a revelation of the false prophets and those who follow them in the “last days.” (2Tim.3:1) But know this, that in the last days grievous times shall come. (2) For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, railers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, (3) without natural affection, implacable, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, (4) traitors, headstrong, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; (5) holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof: from these also turn away. These men, who are identified by their egotistical appetite for money, prestige, pleasure, and position, love their religious “form of godliness.” Among these are the false prophets who lead captive the like-minded apostate religious sects. (6) For of these are they that creep into houses (of worship), and take captive silly women (sects of God’s people – Isa.4:1, 32:9) laden with sins, led away by divers lusts, (7) ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Those who love to justify their own sinful ways respect these “impostors” and their “form of godliness.” (13) But evil men and impostors shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

These false prophets are identified as “lovers of money.” These are the merchants of religious Babylon (Rev.18). They make “Father’s house a house of merchandise” (Jn.2:16). Since God will not support their personal kingdom-building, they peddle books, tapes, trinkets, chicken dinners, tours, etc. This is the way of the world and for those who have an impoverished God. Why would anyone who was sent by God and believed the promises of our provision through Christ do this? Our examples in the early leadership of the Church certainly did not. (Jn.2:13)…Jesus went up to Jerusalem. (14) And he found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: (15) and he made a scourge of cords, and cast all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew their tables; (16) and to them that sold the doves he said, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house a house of merchandise. They peddle the promises of God’s provision to those who give to their ministry. They make “merchandise of the word of God” (2Cor.2:17 [in Greek]). They peddle the Word for salaries like hirelings. When a person is not sent by God he does not have faith that “God shall supply every need” (Php.4:19). Where God sends, He supplies. Without God’s supernatural supply, people have to resort to other tactics to support “their” ministry. The Lord has not changed His mind, “the righteous shall live by faith,” not salaries. He commanded His ministers, “[F]reely ye received, [F]reely give. Get you no gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses.” A man who lives by faith has to walk with God because “if our heart condemn us not, we have boldness toward God; and whatsoever we ask we receive of him, because we keep his commandments and do the things that are pleasing in his sight” (1Jn.3:21,22). God’s command that His leaders walk by faith ensures righteous leadership.

The early Church leadership was not in the habit of taking up collections, but when they did it was not for themselves but the saints in persecution and need as it was with Jerusalem. (1Cor.16:1) Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I gave order to the churches of Galatia, so also do ye. (2) Upon the first day of the week let each one of you lay by him in store, as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come. (3) And when I arrive, whomsoever ye shall approve, them will I send with letters to carry your bounty unto Jerusalem. Notice that Paul didn’t handle the money but approved brethren did. He preferred to not even be present when the collection for the saints was received so that there would be no extortion involved as it was with the Macedonian collection. He also didn’t use the Macedonians’ presence to shame and extort the Corinthians. (2Cor.9:3) But I have sent the brethren, that our glorying on your behalf may not be made void in this respect; that, even as I said, ye may be prepared: (4) lest by any means, if there come with me any of Macedonia and find you unprepared, we (that we say not, ye) should be put to shame in this confidence. (5) I thought it necessary therefore to entreat the brethren, that they would go before unto you, and make up beforehand your aforepromised bounty, that the same might be ready as a matter of bounty, and not of extortion.

Ministers received free will offerings and did not demand their rights through condemnation or legalism. (1Cor.9:11) If we sowed unto you spiritual things, is it a great matter if we shall reap your carnal things? (12) If others partake of [this] right over you, do not we yet more? Nevertheless we did not use this right; but we bear all things, that we may cause no hindrance to the gospel of Christ. (13) Know ye not that they that minister about sacred things eat [of] the things of the temple, [and] they that wait upon the altar have their portion with the altar? (14) Even so did the Lord ordain that they that proclaim the gospel should live of the gospel. (15) But I have used none of these things: and I write not these things that it may be so done in my case; for [it were] good for me rather to die, than that any man should make my glorifying void. Paul said, “we did not use this right…that we may cause no hindrance to the gospel.” Even the world sees through the “gimmee gospel” and its con men and they disrespect the true Gospel because of it. In obeying the command “freely ye received, freely give” we leave no room for suspicion.

(2Pet.2:1) But there arose false prophets also among the people, as among you also there shall be false teachers, who shall privily bring in destructive heresies…. (3) And in covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you. One way they “make merchandise of you” is to put God’s people under the Law to support them when the Scripture clearly states that our giving is “not of necessity” (2Cor.9:7). “[Let] each man [do] according as he has purposed in his heart; not grudgingly, or of necessity (this is not according to the law of tithing): for God loveth a cheerful giver.” In the New Covenant, God wants an offering from the heart from those born of His Spirit. God made the Old Covenant with natural Israel and refused the Gentiles. (Ps.147:19) He showeth his word unto Jacob, His statutes and his ordinances unto Israel. (20) He hath not dealt so with any nation; And as for his ordinances, they have not known them. Now the New Covenant is made only with the Church and refused to those under the Law. If a doctrine like tithing is not in the New Covenant then it was never made with you! It will only separate you from Christ and grace. (Gal.5:4) Ye are severed from Christ, ye who would be justified by the law; ye are fallen away from grace. Jesus rebuked the false prophets of His day saying, “Woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye tithe mint and anise and cummin (even their seasoning), and have left undone the weightier matters of the law, justice, and mercy, and faith: but these you ought to have done (this is past tense in all ancient manuscripts, Numerics, and the Received Text), and not to have left the other undone” (Mt 23:23). Jesus clearly said here that tithing was both in the past and under the Law. Some say tithing was before the Law. Yes, circumcision and animal sacrifice were before the Law, too, but they were included in the law and we are not under Law to do them anymore either. Paul also said tithing was of the Law in Hebrews 7:5-11. There is no New Covenant command or request to tithe because we are no longer stewards of ten percent. Jesus taught that we have to renounce ownership of the other ninety percent or we cannot be His disciple. (Lk.14:33) So therefore whosoever he be of you that renounceth not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. “All” here means all possessions, rights and will. Those who claim possession of the other ninety percent are thieves. The Holy Spirit and the New Covenant commands were given to establish where, how much, and to whom we give. We are merely stewards of what He has put in our hands.

The church’s system of tithing is extortion and graft. It is not even righteous when compared to the Old Covenant tithe. Under the type and shadow of the tithe, ten percent was taken from eleven tribes and given to one tribe, the Levites ([ministers] Num.18:24). Then the Levites gave one ten percent (tithe) to the high priest (25-28). This left the Levites with ten percent from ten tribes. That is an average of what the other eleven tribes had to live on. Even when Israel’s economy grew, they still lived on an average income. Today with a larger percent of the people doing the supporting, coupled with the fact that the pastors have usurped the authority of the rest of the five-fold ministry (Eph.4:11), ministers have become fat and filthy rich. This is a great stumbling block to both the world who sees through this and to the ministers. This also makes the people of God bad stewards. We have made God’s house a “den of robbers” (Mt.21:13). (Ezk.34:2) Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, even to the shepherds, Thus saith the Lord: Woe unto the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the sheep? (3) Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill the fatlings; but ye feed not the sheep.

These men make it plain that we are not under the Law except when there is a profit involved and then we are told to “bring ye the whole tithe into the storehouse,” which is a command of the Old Covenant. Of course, they falsely claim to be the storehouse. In Old Covenant type and shadow, tithes were cast into the treasury, which was in the midst of the temple (1Ki.7:51; Mk.12:41). In the New Covenant the temple is God’s people, and Jesus said that we would be judged by whether we meet the needs of His people (Mt.25:31-46; 1Jn.3:16,17). This is how we store up treasure in heaven (Lk.12:33,34). We are taught to not store up our treasures on earth (Mt.6:19-21) but to meet the needs of the brethren so “that there may be equality” (2Cor.8:14). Those who will not renounce ownership and become stewards of one hundred percent are not being disciples for “we were bought with a price.” We are now bondservants of Christ. The Holy Spirit now tells the disciples of Christ how much, to whom, where, and when to give.
