The Most Precious Gift is Life Itself

Contrary to popular opinion, the 6th Commandment doesn’t say, “Do not kill” – in the original language the word used was râtsach, which is closer in meaning to ‘murder.’ So, the sixth Commandment more properly should read, “Do not murder.” Murder is defined as an illegal, premeditated taking of another’s life, often in a cruel manner [1], whereas killing is legal (as in war or putting down a vicious or rabid animal). Not all wars are moral, nor is all manner of killing, for some killing is immoral and wrong despite it’s being legalized by men’s laws.

A case in point is Abortion, while legal in many places, it’s immoral and wrong according to God’s Law, and is a premeditated ritual murdering of a child in its mother’s womb. Why murder? Because it’s predmeditated and often cruelly done, thus, both mother and abortionist are guilty of ‘murder’ when an abortion takes place.

Ladies out there, please listen and take what I’m about to tell you to heart, for it’s the truth about abortion and not propaganda like what many abortionists and their proponents propagate.

Ending the life of your unborn child deeply offends God for each human being is a miracle and most precious to Him – Psa 139:13  For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. Psa 139:14  I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psa 139:15  My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Psa 139:16  Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. All human beings are precious to Him, for God is love – 1 John 4:8. God gave His Ten Commandments and other directives so that humans would know right from wrong, then gave all men a free will so that they can choose between those two polarities. Thus, when we choose to do wrong our consciences should convict us and smite us with guilt and shame over our wrongful act or thought. When it doesn’t, it means our conscience has become deadened, “seared” the Bible calls it; unable to function due to repeatedly ignoring and going against it’s guidance [Eph 4:19, 1 Tim 4:2, Romans 1:28 & 29]. Having “reprobate minds” and seared consciences “without feeling,” people in this sorry state are in danger of loosing their souls.

To all the young women out there who may at this very moment be contemplating having an abortion, please consider what I’m about to tell you before you make a tragic mistake. Most women who’ve had an abortion regret their decision and feel deep remorse, guilt, and shame afterwards. Many experience gruesome mightmares about the procedure months, even years later. Memories of that awful, terrible moment when the life of their baby is terminated by the terminator, bring back feelings of regret, guilt, and shame. There’s no way to avoid these feelings if you have a functioning conscience and heart, of course there are some who have neither, and cold-heartedly terminate their unborn child without a second thought. Such women are to be pitied for they harm not only their unborn, but themselves and all of society; “the blood of the slain cries out for vengeance,” the killing of innocents POLUTES the earth, http://spirit-wind.org/their-blood-cries-out/. The fake prophets blame fossil fuel and global warming for most calamities on our planet today, but what’s really causing them is a culture of DEATH. We pollute the ground we walk on and grow food in with the innocent blood of the UNBORN which numbers somewhere in the trillions at this point.

When the still, small voice of your consience within you whispers, “Don’t have that abortion,” it’s trying to keep you from killing a piece of your own soul! Abortion is murder, and like all sin, it destroys life, peace, joy, good will, and many of life’s other blessings. Remember, the loss of even one soul is a great tragedy in God’s eyes and it pains Him terribly – 1 Tim 2:4, Jn 3:16, Ps 116:15. If we could see into the gentle, loving heart of God and look into His compassion-filled eyes, we would never sin against Him or our fellow man. Let’s stop being so selfish! Jesus, the Son of God was “selfless” – He gave up his soul, His life, so that all men could be saved [John 3:16].

Ladies, there are alternatives to having an abortion! There are hundreds of clinics out there to help women keep their babies, or put them up for adoption and there are different types of adoption nowdays where the birth mother can see and have a relationship with her child while it’s growing up in the adoptive parents household; this is called and Open Adoption. Some adoptions are ‘closed,’ where the birth mother or father can’t have any contact with their child until it reaches adulthood. At that time the Adoptee (adopted child) can choose to search for its birth-mother or father; there are many happy and some not so happy ones, but at least Adoption gives LIFE to an unwanted child, while Abortion only gives DEATH. Don’t you think your child deserves a chance to LIVE? Only you can make that choice, but be aware that if you choose death for your child, it will cost you more than you realize, and it will haunt you for the rest of your life. You will never know your child or the grandchildren you could have had. You’ll never know what your baby would have looked like or what he/she could have accomplished because you ended its life via abortion. THINK about that for a moment. This may not mean much to you now while you’re fretting over how you’re going to raise your unborn baby, but years into the future, it WILL matter to you. Think about never knowing your grandchildren….go ahead, take a few moments right now and really consider that you may never have other children or grandchildren to hold, cuddle and love.

The problem with a woman, especially a young, unmarried woman faced with this life-altering choice, is that many in that position have little if any support from family, church, or elsewhere, to keep their child. Many feel alone and afraid and incapable of raising a child; some are very young, still in school, homeless, or jobless. Some or all of those factors together could make a woman feel that having an abortion is the easiest, quickest and most painless way to solve her problem so she can resume her life without the responsibility of raising a child. Sure, having an abortion solves the problem, or seems to, but can a person really avoid all the consequences of breaking one of God’s commands? The truth is that whenever we break God’s commands, which is what sin is, suffering follows. Fornication (having sex outside of marriage) is a Sin…..”avoid fornication” [1 Cor 7:2]; not that all unwanted pregnancies occur among the unmarried, but the majority of them do.

The truth is, having an abortion will NOT remove the consequences of having sex outside of marriage which resulted in an unwanted pregnancy! There WILL BE CONSEQUENCES whether you keep your child or not, but giving your unborn child a chance to live is the better choice. Why choose death when you can choose life instead? Remember that murder is a sin against God, your unborn child, and yourself. Disobedience to God’s law is sin and sin brings forth the death of your soul – Jas 1:15  “…..and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” Rom 6:23  “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Give the gift of life, for God gave you life. Don’t have an Abortion no matter who wants you to or what your circumstances are. Whether you’re the father or the mother of an unborn child, think about what you’re going to be missing if you abort your baby; take a good look at the photo above. Consider the future and the loss of grandchildren and never seeing or knowing what your child may have accomplised in life had it lived. Then, think about the sentence of death which you have brought upon yourself through committing the sin of murder. These are the agonizing facts of Abortion. If you have already had an abortion, you can be forgiven by God if you repent and admit you made a terrible mistake. If you’re truly sorry for what you have done and vow to never do it again, God WILL forgive you and cleanse you of the stain of that sin if you ask Him to – 1 John 1:9. 

Those who are born again through faith in Jesus Christ, understand the value of both physical and spiritual life. If you don’t know Jesus, invite Him into your heart today and learn the meaning and value of life. It will change the way you look at everything for, He “makes all things new.” – Revelation 21:5

Don’t Judge A Book by Its Cover

Homeless Man in Shabby Clothes Sitting in City Park With Sign Asking for Help by chipleader on Envato Elements

You’ve heard the old adage: “Don’t judge a book by its cover” and yet many, even Christians sometimes, judge people by how they look on the outside. This is wrong. Jesus, who professed believers say they follow and model their behavior after, said the following —-

Jas 2:1  My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.

Jas 2:2  For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;

Jas 2:3  And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:

Jas 2:4  Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?

Jas 2:5  Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

Jas 2:6  But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?

Jas 2:7  Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?

Jas 2:8  If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:

Jas 2:9  But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.

This teaching came to my mind after being in church where a man came in who definitely looked out of place. I suspected that he might be homeless. After the service ended I saw the man standing outside the building but near the door, waiting perhaps for someone to come out and talk to him. Seems like God chose me this chilly morning to do just that, and I was very glad that he did. The man, dressed in somewhat shabby clothing turned out to be well educated and a delight to talk with. He had a good amount of knowledge of the Bible and spiritual realities; I could tell that he often heard God speak to him. I knew from what he shared with me that he had a personal relationship with God and might be one of the most spiritual men I have ever encountered. Our conversation was lively and blessed since most of what we discussed was all about Jesus and what He had done and was doing in our lives. Jesus said, Mat 18:20  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Jesus was certainly in our midst as we spoke of Him. This is what true, spiritual fellowship is all about. What this brother and I did was share Christ with each other which is communion as mentioned in 2Co 13:14,  The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.

When Jesus broke bread at the last supper with his disciples, He used bread as a metaphor for his body that was soon to be ‘broken’ and sacrificed for them. Jesus said, For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. (John 6:55, 56 & 63) Jesus wasn’t telling His disciples to literally eat His flesh and drink His blood. He was telling them that His body was going to be broken for their physical and spiritual healing and that his blood was going to be shed as atonement for their sins. Joh 6:51  I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever… 

We eat physical bread to sustain our bodies and spiritual bread to sustain our souls. 

We feed upon Christ not by eating physical bread but by eating His words and communing with His Spirit in us.

Communion is sharing Christ (what he has taught us and done in us) with other believers, through His Holy Spirit in us.

If we judge people by their outward appearance we may miss out on meeting someone who has spiritual riches to share with us!

If I had judged the rather ragged looking man by his outward appearance, I probably wouldn’t have stopped to talk to him and would have missed out on a blessing. Though poor in this world’s goods, the man was rich in the knowledge of God’s Word and ways. I could tell he spends time in God’s presence and hears from Him and is a man who KNOWS God, not someone who’s only heard about Him – Job 42:5  I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. 

It’s far more important to be rich in spiritual things than to be rich in this world’s goods.

Luk 6:20  And he (Jesus) lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. 

Luk 6:21  Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. (in the kingdom of God)

Luk 6:24  But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. 

Luk 6:25  Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. 

Therefore, I would rather be rich in spiritual things and be poor in this world’s goods, than be rich in this world’s goods and be poor in spiritual things. It’s a blessing to know the difference and to know what’s most important in life.

New Currency & Upgrade

Old worn one dollar billDREAM OF SEPT. 24, 2021 – early to late morning.

In this dream I heard that only the young people will get the ‘upgrade,’ not older people. [1]

I was standing at a bank teller’s station to withdraw some money from my bank account. To my surprise the teller handed me back some kind of foreign currency!! I said to the teller, “Oh no, not those things!!”

It felt like I was holding a deck of cards as the currency was stiff like cardboard, square, and had edges like that of a postage stamp – with notches all around it. They were a light-medium tan color and I didn’t notice the writing on them, but I thought they were some kind of a ‘mark’ as some foreign money is called.

You know how a bank teller usually hands you paper money in a neat stack? That’s not how I was handed the new currency, so I gathered the bills into my hands and arranged them into a neat stack, slamming them down on the counter a couple of times (as one would do with a deck of cards) until the edges were even all around.

I thought, “These things are heavy! How will I ever carry them around?” I wasn’t happy about having to use this new type of currency, seeing it as a big inconvenience.

Lastly, I took out an OLD, WORN, TATTERED U.S. dollar bill and asked the teller if I could exchange it for one of the new currency bills. It also had a small hole in it. The teller said, “Well, maybe it can be repaired” (clue) and took it from me. She turned around so I couldn’t see what she was doing with it. When she turned again and faced me, she handed me one of the new currency bills in exchange for the old, torn, tattered dollar bill. (another clue)

What could this all mean?

My first impression is that the ‘old, worn’ dollar bill symbolizes the U.S. economy wearing out and becoming obsolete. The introduction of a ‘new’ currency replacing it is a sign that there will be a collapse of the U.S. economy and a global reset in which a ‘new’ currency replaces the current U.S. currency.

Going deeper – The new currency in the dream was a tan, flesh-like color and was the REPLACEMENT for the old, worn out dollar bill which symbolizes the old, worn out human being (according to the Elites). The Elites feel that the human being needs an ‘upgrade’ [1] and they believe they’ve found the solution to end disease and even death with the use of technology and science. The ‘upgrade’ the elites have been planning is a DNA alteration combining human DNA with foreign (non-human) DNA to produce a ‘hybrid’ being, suposedly better, stronger, and longer-lasting (even immortal). There’s such a thing called the ‘eternity gene’ [2] which the elites plan to insert via vaccination into certain people to bring about this ‘upgrade.’ Who is chosen for the upgrade is decided by the Elites; not everyone will get the upgrade. Once inserted and absorbed into the human genome, the change will be permanent – the former human being becomes a ‘hybrid’ being, a mixture of human and foreign flesh (note the foreign currency connection).

In my dream when I gave the bank teller my ‘old, torn’ dollar bill she said “Maybe it can be repaired” and turned around so I couldn’t see what she was doing to it. Perhaps the upgrade is going to be done in secret, hidden from the general public and without their knowledge? Note how the teller ‘exchanged’ my old dollar bill with a ‘new currency’ – one that was ‘foreign.’

Could this mingling of foreign DNA with human DNA, be the Mark of the Beast of bible prophecy? I believe the current Covid shots, having human DNA altering properties, are a precursor to the coming human hybrid which will be the product of the splicing and combining of human and non-human DNA.

The Elite’s scheme will end in disappointment, disaster, and ruin becase only Jesus Christ can give eternal life.

What is the Kingdom of God?

Rom 14:17  for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. [RV]

righteousness = Thayer’s Def’s. 1b) integrity, virtue, purity of life, rightness, correctness of thinking feeling, and acting

*Notice that not only are our actions righteous or unrighteous but also our thoughts and feelings.

righteousness – This word here means “virtue, integrity,” a faithful discharge of all the duties which we owe to God or to our fellow-men. It means that the Christian must so live as to be appropriately denominated a righteous man, and not a man whose whole attention is absorbed by the mere ceremonies and outward forms of religion. To produce this, we are told, was the main design, and the principal teaching of the gospel; Tit_2:12; Compare Rom_8:13; 1Pe_2:11. Thus, it is said 1Jn_2:29, “Everyone that doeth righteousness is born of God;” 1Jn_3:10, “Whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God;” compare 1Jn_3:7; 1Co_15:34; 2Co_3:9; 2Co_6:7, 2Co_6:14; Eph_5:9; Eph_6:14; 1Ti_6:11; 1Pe_2:24; Eph_4:24. He that is a righteous man, whose characteristic it is to lead a holy life, is a Christian. [Albert Barnes’ Notes on the Bible]

Mat 7:21  “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 
Mat 7:22  Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in Your name, and drive out demons in Your name, and perform many miracles in Your name?’ 
Mat 7:23  Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you. Get away from Me, you workers of lawlessness!’” [Tree of Life Version]

kingdom = Thayer Definition: 1) royal power, kingship, dominion, rule
lawlessness (iniquity) = Thayer Definition: 1) the condition of without law, 2) contempt and violation of law; iniquity, wickedness

The sense of this verse seems to be this: No person, by merely acknowledging my authority, believing in the Divinity of my nature, professing faith in the perfection of my righteousness, and infinite merit of my atonement, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven – shall have any part with God in glory; but he who doeth the will of my Father – he who gets the bad tree rooted up, the good tree planted, and continues to bring forth fruit to the glory and praise of God. [Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible]

Not every one that saith … – The Saviour goes on to say that many, on the ground of a mere profession such as he had just referred to, would claim admittance into his kingdom. Many would plead that they had done miracles, and preached or prophesied much, and on the ground of that would demand an entrance into heaven. The power of working miracles had no necessary connection with piety. God may as well, if he chooses, give the power of raising the dead to a wicked man, as the skill of healing to a wicked physician. A miracle is a display “of his own power” through the medium of another. An act of healing the sick is also a display of “his power” through the agency of another. In neither of these cases is there any necessary connection with moral character. So of preaching or prophesying. God may use the agency of a man of talents, though not pious, to carry forward His purposes. Saving power on the mind is the work of God, and he may convey it by any agency which he chooses. Accordingly, many may be found in the day of judgment who may have been endowed with powers of prophecy or miracle, as Balaam or the magicians of Egypt; in the same way as many people of distinguished talents may be found, yet destitute of piety, and who will be shut out of his kingdom. See Mat_7:21; 1Co_1:26; 1Co_13:1-3. [Albert Barnes’ Notes on the Bible]

So true, so true. Many years ago the LORD showed me that just because a pastor and/or the leadership of a church has the gifts of the Holy Spirit operating in its midst, doesn’t necessarily mean those leaders are walking with God or are doing His will (obeying His instructions). Of all the churches I’ve attended most didn’t allow the operation of the gifts, except for two. Of those two, one allowed some of the gifts but restrained the Holy Spirit from working miracles. The Holy Spirit had told me that there were enough people in that church who had the faith to believe for miraculous healings but the pastor didn’t want that because he wouldn’t be in control! How hard it is for pastors to relinquish control unto God! In addition, the pastors of that church sometimes spent tithes and offerings on themselves and took money designated for one purpose and used it for another. When confronted with these offenses they refused to admit and repent of them. I dare say that those responsible for shackling the Holy Spirit and misusing funds were not walking according to God’s Torah (His commands) and were not bearing good “fruit” in everything, as some of their fruit was rotten. 

Mat 12:33  Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit
Mat 12:36  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 
Mat 12:37  For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Joh 15:8  In this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be My disciples.”

Then Yeshua began telling this parable: “A man had a fig tree he had planted in his vineyard, and he came looking for fruit on it and found none
Luk 13:7  So he said to the gardener, ‘Indeed, for three years I‘ve come searching for fruit on this fig tree and found none. Remove it! Why does it use up the ground?’ 
Luk 13:8  “But answering, the gardener said to him, ‘Master, leave it alone for this year also, until I dig around it and apply fertilizer. 
Luk 13:9  And if it bears fruit, good. But if not, cut it down.’” 

fruit = 2a) work, act, deed (includes words) [Thayer Greek Definitions] *Note that the tree (or person) which doesn’t bear fruit will in time be “cut down.” 

Recently, I confronted a church about God’s Sabbath day which is the 7th day of the weekly cycle, not the 1rst day, which is Sunday. The holy scriptures bear this fact out in both the old and new testaments leaving no room for error. The leadership there is well-educated, some went to seminary (college to learn the bible) and yet they deny which day God sanctified (blessed/hallowed) as HIS sabbath. How can that be I asked myself – maybe you’re asking the same question right now. The only answer that comes to mind is, “the mystery of iniquity” is at work in such cases! — 2Th 2:7  For the mystery of lawlessness is already operating; only there is one who holds back just now, until he is taken out of the way. [TLV] *Lawlessness and iniquity are synonymous terms. Remember, the meaning of “iniquity” is “being without law; contempt and violation of the law (or Torah).” In the Torah we find that God’s Sabbath day was (and still is) the 7th day of the week, not the first. *Read Matthew 28:1-6, Luke 24:1, John 20:1, Luke 23:56, Exodus 20:10 and 34:21 for facts re God’s Sabbath day.

Some verses on the Kingdom of God for you to meditate on:

Mat 6:33  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 
Mat 12:28  But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
Mat 16:28  Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom
Mat 18:3  And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven
Mat 18:4  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven
Mat 19:13  Then little children were brought to Yeshua so that He might lay hands upon them and pray. Then the disciples rebuked those who brought them. 
Mat 19:14  But Yeshua said, “Let the little children come to Me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 

Do you know why the kingdom belongs to the likes of little children? Because they are humble, trusting, and totally dependent upon their parents for their every need – the way believers in Christ should depend upon and humbly trust in Him.

*All the words of Jesus Christ are in red. All bolding and underlining added by me for emphasis.

Dear visitor, just so you know, this post is merely a starting point, a place for you to begin your own study on the subject of the Kingdom of God. I pray you will continue to study, that you may “walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God” – Col 1:10. [KJV]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE STRAIT GATE vs. THE BROAD WAY

As Jesus travelled towards Jerusalem, passing through villages, He taught many along the way.
Luk 13:23  Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, 
Luk 13:24  Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 
Luk 13:25  When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: 
Luk 13:26  Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 
Luk 13:27  But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity
Luk 13:28  There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. 

“iniquity” = “lawlessness, or a state of being without law.”
“strait gate” = “narrow” from the base of G2476; abide, appoint, bring, continue, covenant, establish, hold up, lay, present, set (up), stanch, stand (by, forth, still, up).

Strive — The word signifies to “contend” as for the mastery, to “struggle,” expressive of the difficulty of being saved, as if one would have to force his way in.

strait gate — another figure of the same.

for many … will seek — “desire,” that is, with a mere wish or slothful endeavor.
and shall not be able — because it must be made a life-and-death struggle. [Jamieson, Fausset, & Brown Commentary]

Confused? So was I when I first started comparing the teachings of Jesus to those of Paul the supposed 13th Apostle of Christ and saw a decided difference between them. Paul made salvation easy; all one has to do to be saved was to “believe” that Christ arose from the dead. Jesus taught that entering the kingdom of God would be “difficult,” the “way would be narrow!” Now, maybe Paul had good intentions and there’s some explanation for his departure from what Jesus taught, but if there is, I haven’t yet found one. All I can think is that maybe Paul was only addressing the extreme legalistic teachings of the Jewish priesthood at that time, but how can one excuse Paul’s changing God’s words in many old testament passages to the point where he makes the Law of God null and void? Refer to his article http://spirit-wind.org/paul-and-the-law/

Who should followers of Christ believe if not Jesus? Should they take Paul’s word and teachings over those of Jesus, the Son of God who died for all men and who alone has been given all authority in heaven and on earth? [Mt 28:18] Paul, however devoted or sincere he was, is NOT man’s savior – he was just a man and where his words conflict with those of the Savior’s, I for one will chose Jesus’s words over his every time.

God’s last “covenant” with His people Israel, was His Ten Commandments and the other 613 commands written in the book of Moses; together they are what’s called the Mosaic Code. The ONLY thing that was changed in this Covenant which God made with all Israel, was that far into the future God would “write His laws upon the hearts” of his people – Jer 31:31, 32 & 33 

Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 
Jer 31:34  And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity (lawlessness), and I will remember their sin no more. 

Thus, the so called “new covenant” is really a renewed covenant in which God’s law would be written upon men’s hearts, a covenant which won’t take full effect until the Millennium (when all will know God; Jer 31:34) begins when Jesus returns – [Mt. 24]. God’s laws have not been abolished, discontinued, or nailed to Christ’s Cross as some misinformed or dishonest ministers have taught. Mat 7:15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Don’t listen to men who tell you God’s law no longer stands so you can disregard it, for such are “wolves in sheep’s clothing,” dishonest, ravenous, greedy dogs interested only in your tithes and offerings, not your salvation! Have you never wondered how it is that ministers who teach that the ‘law’ is obsolete, DEMAND that you give to THEM tithes and offerings which were part of the very same law which they say has passed away??? Listen to the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) who is with us to “lead us into all truth,” convict and comfort us –

Joh 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 shew you things to come. 1Jn 2:27  But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 

Want more proof that obtaining salvation isn’t easy like Paul taught? You can take the “broad (easy) way” which leads to destruction, or you can enter through the “strait (narrow, difficult) gate” which leads to life. Jesus said “few” will find the way to life! Thus, it stands to reason that if entering God’s kingdom is so easy, why is it that “few” find the way to it? 

Mat 7:13  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 
Mat 7:14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it
Mat 7:21  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 
Mat 7:22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 
Mat 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity

Entering into God’s kingdom doesn’t sound easy here either, and remember it was Jesus who spoke these words. Notice the term “iniquity” is repeated in vs. 23.

In this passage Jesus is speaking of those who claim to know Him and calling them workers of “iniquity” or “lawlessness,” the state of having no law, more specifically HIS LAW! Notice that Jesus doesn’t allow them entrance into His kingdom because they failed to take heed to His law. How little the modern church regards the law of God as outlined in what is inaccurately called the Old Testament making it sound outdated or obsolete. True, some parts of it are obsolete and non-binding upon believers in the New (renewed) Covenant, but there are still many parts of the previous covenant God made with Israel that are STILL VALID for believers today. Discerning which parts are and aren’t requires time and diligent study of the Scriptures, which sadly, many aren’t willing to do to their peril. – Hos 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. 

Jesus requires OBEDIENCE to his law – “those who DO THE WILL OF MY FATHER IN HEAVEN” will be allowed into his kingdom, those who DON’T DO IT won’t be. Notice how Jesus rejected those who thought that their doing of all kinds of wonderful WORKS would gain them entrance into His kingdom. You see, however wonderful our WORKS are, they aren’t enough to gain us favor with God or entrance into His kingdom – we must have more, we must walk in obedience to His law! Read it over as many times as you wish, foreward and backward, makes no difference – the way to (eternal) life is “NARROW” and “STRAIT,” a Gate you have to “STRIVE” (struggle) to enter, even force your way into.

If you believe I’m wrong about any of this, please feel free to write me and let me know where I’ve erred. I’m always open to correction since I’m imperfect and still learning as I continue to follow Yeshua and abide in His Word.

Shalom to those who shema (hear) and obey the Ruach HaKodesh (God’s Holy Spirit)!

 

 

 

 

ORDER OUT OF CHAOS

A few months ago I had a dream in which I saw a picture of SET, the god of “chaos,” war, and storms http://spirit-wind.org/a-usurper-increasing-chaos-in-america/  My interpretation of the dream was that “chaos” and storms would be coming en force to the whole world and that is precisely what’s been happening ever since. We are now seeing the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, causing massive “chaos” throughout the region. Every time you tune into the news you see the word “CHAOS” emblazoned across your TV screen. You hear newscasters repeating the word “chaos” over and over with regards to what’s happening there and other parts of the world.

The dream was prophetic, predicting a future event and things to come, which are now a present reality. I suspect what we are seeing is just the beginning of “chaos,” for its purpose is to stir up panic, confusion, strife, and destruction of the present order so that the undercover conspirators can usher in their long awaited New World Order. Believe it or not, the New World Order is here now and not far off into the future; http://spirit-wind.org/preparing-a-people-in-2020/ it awaits only the placement of the ‘capstone’ to be finalized. 

“Order out of Chaos” or ‘Ordo Ab Chao’ in Latin is the slogan of the 33rd degree of Freemasonry [1]. “Secret Societies have a great motto ‘Ordo Ab Chao’ meaning ‘Order Out of Chaos’. Agendas are formulated designed to give the powerful more power. Chaos is created, and media blitzed. Then cries go out for solution. Laws are passed which could never have been passed without the chaos. The order, has reigned through deception of the masses, and the agenda is accomplished.” [2]

In the new world order there will be a centralized seat of power (possibly the U.N.) from which the whole world will be governed by one ruler. Democracies and all other forms of government will become extinct and the majority of earthlings will either submit to (and worship) this Beast power or face death by execution or starvation. As we’re seeing right now with the government’s rigorous totalitarian vaccination program – if you don’t get vaccinated you’ll loose your job, won’t be allowed into some colleges, sports events, clubs, restaurants, etc. In other words, we’re being coerced into submitting to unsafe and unproven shots [3] through threat of having our means of survival taken away from us, similar to what the Bible prophesied in Rev 13:16-17  “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Not that the shots are the ‘mark’ but maybe they’re the precursor of the ‘mark’ which is to be administered at a later date? 

Here’s a question for you dear reader, “Why did President Biden not take intelligence advice and warnings about what would occur if he suddenly pulled all our troops out of Afghanistan? Why did Biden ignore the warnings and pull our troops out all at once instead of in stages, and why didn’t he evacuate the thousands of Americans living there, first? You may find my answer shocking, but here it is – Biden pulled our troops out all at once and didn’t evacuate Americans first because he WANTED to create chaos!

That’s right, Biden is all for the New World Order; he knows that the way to establish it is to create “chaos” and DESTROY the present world order and all other forms of government. Biden put Americans in danger by his sudden and total removal of American troops from Afghanistan, showing how little he cares about American lives! Biden’s stubborn refusal to admit he made a mistake removing troops all at once, is a wakeup call. Joe Biden was a big mistake for America, one we’ll regret well into the future.

An article penned by Joe Biden in 1992 reveals how long he’s pledged allegiance to the New World Order system. The Wall Street Journal op-ed, titled “How I Learned to Love the New World Order”, Biden, then a Delaware senator, explained his plans to cede America’s sovereignty to the United Nations and establish a one world government by “breathing life into the U.N. Charter” [4] 

Rev 13:15  “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” This verse came to mind when I read the above excerpt!!! Any correlation I wonder? Notice how the article states that Biden long ago planned to cede America’s sovereignty to the U.N and establish a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT, or New World Order.

If you can believe that the Plan is to create “chaos” so that the current world order can be replaced with a New World Order, then you’ll understand why events are happening the way they are. EVERYTHING of significance that’s happening in the world today is being orchestrated to bring about the NWO; nothing that occurs is accidental, NOTHING! If you can get this, you won’t be confused or bewildered by all the “chaos,” destruction of world powers, wars, take-overs, politically motivated decisions (like Biden’s), and so on.

Now that you understand why things are happening the way they are, what can you do about it? Well, there’s nothing anyone can do to stop the advancement of the New World Order (prophesied in the bible) but you can and must decide sooner or later whose side you’re on. Will you side with the NWO and its tyrannical dictates, or will you side with the King of Kings, the ultimate Ruler of this world who will set up His Reign on earth at the start of the Millennium? This decision won’t be an easy one for some people, perhaps for most, as who wants to give up everything they have?

Truly, many will submit to the NWO to their ruin. Didn’t Jesus say to the rich, young ruler, Mat 19:21  Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. Mat 19:22  But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. Jesus also said that unless we’re willing to give up everything we have to follow Him, we’re not worthy of Him – Luk 14:33  So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. Joh 12:25  He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

I guess the BIG test for every human being at this point in time is choosing who’ll they’ll submit themselves to, Christ and His Kingdom rule, or to the Devil’s New World Order. I wonder which one you’ll submit to. May you find the strength and resolve to follow Jesus, even if it means losing your life here and everything you own, so that you may gain Eternal Life. Seek for Him with all of your heart, and you will surely find Him.

PAUL AND THE LAW

One of the reasons Jesus came to earth was to set things straight, to teach the proper interpretation and application of the Torah. See: Mt 5:17- 48

The teachers (Pharisees) of the law in Jesus’s day had “added” many man-made laws (like “touch not, taste not”) to God’s Torah. They taught the outer observance only and missed the inner application, a changed heart – “I will give them one heart, and put a new spirit within you; and I will ake the stony heart out of their flesh….” Ezek 11:19 (See also Ezek 36:26&27, Deut 30:6, Jer 24:7, Jer 32:39-40)

The purpose and effect of that – Eze 11:20  That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God. 

So, the purpose of God giving people a new spirit and a new heart of flesh was so they would walk in his statutes, and keep his ordinances. And, His law isn’t too hard to keep (because He helps us keep it, IF we’re willing) —

Deu 30:11  For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. 
Deu 30:12  It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 
Deu 30:13  Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 
Deu 30:14  But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. 

When I saw that last phrase in Deut. 30:14, I realized that the reason for Yahweh’s law being in men’s mouths and hearts was so that they could DO it! But something shook me to the core when I compared this passage with Paul’s quote of it in Romans 10:8 —-

Rom 10:6  But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) 
Rom 10:7  Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) 
Rom 10:8  [But what saith it?] The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: [that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 
Rom 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 
Rom 10:10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.]** 

Notice what Paul left off of his misquote of Deut. 30:14 — “that thou mayest do it.” Paul clearly twisted the meaning of the Deut passage which states the purpose for having the word nigh, in one’s mouth and heart, is so that one can DO IT, which agrees with Ezek 11:20 and James 2:14-26. Contrariwise, Paul seems to be saying that confession with the mouth and belief in the heart (without works) results in salvation of the soul. Is that what Paul meant or does it just sound like that’s what he meant? He sure seems to be giving the impression that merely confessing with one’s mouth and believing in his heart that Jesus died for his sins, is ALL one needs to do to be saved.

** Everything enclosed in brackets above is what Paul ADDED to the original Old Testament passage! What did Yahweh say about “adding to” and “taking away from” His words?

Deu 4:2  Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.
Deu 12:32  What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it. 
Pro 30:5  Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Pro 30:6  Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Dear reader, it’s quite significant that Paul, hailed by many Christians as being the greatest of all Christ’s apostles, “diminished” (removed, took away from, made small, lessened) Yahweh’s perfect Word!

When I first saw this I was doing a search on another topic in my bible study software and never expected to make such a discovery. To put it mildly, I was flabbergasted – my mouth fell open as I realized what Paul had done. Emphatically I asked, “Lord, what has Paul done here? What has he done?!!” My eyes were opened in that moment and I knew that what I had seen could not be unseen. I also realized that if there was one passage Paul twisted and changed the meaning of, there must be others. So I began a search for other Old Testament passages which Paul changed and misquoted in the books of the New Testament. To my horror I found MANY such passages! 

One of my first questions upon finding them was how could it be accidental? How could a man of extensive (so Paul claimed) learning and tutorage have accidentally twisted so many scripture passages, leaving out large portions of God’s words and adding his own in their place?

Yahweh keeps repeating that men are to KEEP His commandments, and not to add to or diminish anything from them!

The apostle James the Just seems to at least partly disagree with Paul on justification by faith alone —-

Jas 2:14  What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 
Jas 2:17  Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 
Jas 2:18  Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 
Jas 2:19  Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 
Jas 2:20  But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 
Jas 2:21  Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 
Jas 2:22  Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 
Jas 2:23  And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 
Jas 2:24  Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 
Jas 2:25  Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? 
Jas 2:26  For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

James makes it very clear in vs 24, that one is not justified by faith alone! Yikes! Who’s right and who’s wrong on this point, James or Paul? Is a man saved by faith alone or by faith plus works? What did Jesus teach on this topic?

Mat 19:16  Now behold, one came to Him and said, “Teacher, what good shall I do to have eternal life?” 
Mat 19:17  “Why do you ask Me about what is good?” Yeshua said to him. “There is only One who is good; but if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.”
Mat 19:18  “Which ones?” he said. Yeshua said, “‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, 
Mat 19:19  honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’”

Note that Jesus quoted the Ten Commandments as being the way to “enter into life!”

Luk 16:17  And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail. (“law” is a mistranslation of Torah which is what we today call the Old Testament, like it has no relevance anymore for it has passed away – so not true. God’s law is forever settled in the heavens – Psa 119)

Jesus said much more about the Law which for the sake of brevity, here are some links on the topic for you truth seekers — https://truthinrevelation.wordpress.com/

CONCLUSION —

Understanding Paul and his position on the “law” (a mistranslation of the term Torah which consists of all the books contained in what we call today the Old Testament) has never been easy. Many, myself included, have found Paul’s writings “difficult” to understand. Many of his words seem cryptic and even incoherent, not making sense. Plus, I had always felt in my heart that something was terribly wrong with the teaching that God’s Law had passed away or been done away with – why would God do away with His own law??? That never made sense to me. Now, I know why – Paul’s view on God’s law doesn’t match what God, Jesus, and His Apostles all said about it; in their teachings they all confirmed the Torah (law). ONLY Paul taught that the Law was passing away; only Paul taught that believers after the death of Christ, were “no longer under the law” because it had been “done away with” (book of Hebrews, Colossians, Romans, & Galatians). ONLY Paul taught that in the New Covenant salvation was by “faith” alone – just believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus died for you and you’ll be saved. For the past 40 plus years I have believed exactly that, but is that the whole truth? The ONLY thing God (Yahweh) changed in the New Covenant, was that He would “write” His laws in men’s hearts – Jeremiah 31:33  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 

After stumbling upon the fact that Paul changed God’s words on the Law, I conclude that God’s Law – the Ten Commandments and the entire Torah including the Prophets, Proverbs, and Psalms; IS STILL IN FORCE and therefore, should be kept by everyone today!!

When you remove Paul’s writings on the Law from the equation, the entire Bible makes sense and agrees with itself from cover to cover – finally!! Paul’s writings on the law should be seen as commentary and not “inspired” (as in God-breathed) since they differ from what Yahweh said re His Law, and which Yeshua confirmed. The way to judge all writings and teachings is to compare them to God’s words in the Old Testament – whatever disagrees is a falsehood. Paul claimed to have seen Jesus while traveling on the road to Damascus and that Jesus taught him the things he later wrote in his letters to various churches – but did he really see Jesus or Lucifer the Light Bearer? Others like Paul have had VISIONS and made big claims of being “chosen” and “sent” to bring messages to mankind; men like Mohammed, founder of the Muslim religion [1] and Joseph Smith (founder of the Mormon religion) [2].  Are you willing to stake your eternal salvation upon some man’s VISION? I certainly am not. While visions and dreams can be valid and helpful, they should never be considered EQUAL to the written Word, nor can they ever REPLACE it!

Ultimately, every person who claims to know Jesus and Yahweh His Father, has to come to his own conclusion on this matter but all must weigh the evidence (which is plentiful) and decide. God will not hold innocent the man who claims ignorance of His Word when it is so freely and easily obtained in our times; the Bible is still the number one best seller of bookstores the world over.

In my estimation, Paul wrote some wonderful things in his letters so not everything he wrote was wrong, but one has to ferret out what’s true and what isn’t, what to keep and what to discard. God allowed Paul’s letters to be included in the canon of Scripture perhaps to “test” us, to see who would obey Yahweh’s words versus those of a stranger. Perhaps part of God’s test was to see if we would “test the spirits” like John said we should do – 1Jn 4:1  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 1Th 5:20  do not despise prophetic messages, 1Th 5:21  but test all things, hold fast to what is good, 

So, why have so many Christians FAILED to “test” Paul’s writings by comparing them to Old Testament scriptures and the teachings of Jesus (Yeshua) their Savior and Lord? One reason why is that Christian ministers have discouraged believers from reading the old testament books saying they are no longer relevant for today. Another reason, even more abominable, is that many believers hold Paul in higher esteem than they do Jesus who is supposed to have pre-eminence above all things.  After all, it was Jesus, not Paul, who shed his blood for us. So it is Jesus we should be following and holding in highest esteem – not Paul.

The way I see it, the bible contains the true words of God (Yahweh) but not all words written therein are the words of God. I know, some will object saying the bible is infallible and if we don’t believe all of it, we can’t believe any of it – but that’s not so. We CAN know the truth whether the bible is infallible or not – the diligent and earnest seeker will dig out the nuggets of truth buried beneath the rubble of half-truths and lies. 

Mat 7:7  Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 
Mat 7:8  For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 

I sought and I found. You too can find the truth if you’re willing to seek for it with all your heart. How badly do you want it? I prayed to God several times asking Him to “just show me the truth,” and He did, but I also had to dig for it as one would dig for buried treasure. 

Happy digging!

An Overlooked Endtime Sign

Surveillance video captured the shocking attack that took place on February 20, 2020, in the Tenderloin district

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[Photo of a disabled man being kicked out of his walker seat by a complete stranger – copied from Dailymail.co.uk] 

Some are so focused on endtime signs such as war with Israel, a rebuilt Jewish temple, famines and pestilences, that they may be overlooking more common signs like those mentioned in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 and Romans 1:22-32,

2Ti 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 
2Ti 3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 
2Ti 3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 
2Ti 3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 
2Ti 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 

The endtime sign which I’ll be focusing on in this article, “without natural affection,” has become so commonplace that one could easily overlook it.  Young unwed mothers giving birth in bathrooms and afterwards tossing their newborns into trash bins alive, or murdering them first, are prime examples of human beings without natural affection, wouldn’t you say? Miraculously, some newborns survive such barbarism, being found by some passerby who rescues the child from death’s jaws. How can a mother commit such a heartless act? It’s inhuman and unnatural.

Many today have lost their ability to feel empathy for others. More than at any time in history, adult children are abandoning their aging parents who need them most at the final stages of their lives. You can find countless testimonies online and in books of parents who did right by their children who were nonetheless later abandoned by their adult children for no apparent reason whatsoever. How can children be so cold and uncaring towards the parents who nurtured and raised them? Why is this happening and what does it mean? Then, there are increasing reports of random acts of violence against the most vulnerable – the elderly, women and children, and even the disabled! Such cold heartedness and total disregard for human life is a shocking sign of the depth of depravity to which mankind without God can sink to. What we’re seeing is the fulfillment of the scripture which prophesied that in the last days people would be without natural affection.

Another passage having the phrase, “without natural affection” is in the book of Romans —

Rom 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; [skipped vss. 19-20]
Rom 1:21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. [skipped vss. 22-27]
Rom 1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 
Rom 1:29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 
Rom 1:30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 
Rom 1:31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 
Rom 1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. 

G794 ἄστοργος  astorgos
Thayer Definition:
1) without natural affection, unsociable (Rom_1:31 marg.), inhuman (2Ti_3:3 RSV), unloving (2Ti_3:3 NKJV)

Strong’s Definition: hard hearted towards kindred: – without natural affection.

From these two passages alone it’s clear that we’re living in the last days in which Jesus Christ will return to this earth to judge the wicked and unbelieving multitudes. After the tribulation, God will order His angels to “gather the tares into bundles to be burned and the wheat into his barn.” Tares are the unbelievers who are against Christ and the wheat are the righteous who believe in Christ. Ref’s. Mt 13:24-30

Friend, are you ready to meet the One who made heaven and earth? Are you prepared to give Him an answer for every deed you carried out in your lifetime? If you’re not, may I suggest that you get ready before time runs out and with it the opportunity to get right with God, because that day is coming and nothing can stop it. If you haven’t given your heart and your allegiance to Yahweh, maker of heaven and earth and all that is, please consider doing so right away, don’t wait until you feel like it because you may never feel like it! Faith isn’t based on feelings and neither is salvation, it comes by hearing the word of God – Rom 10:17 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” When you believe in your heart that Jesus died for your sins on the Cross and then confess with your mouth that He is Lord you will be saved, that’s God’s promise to every human being who receives Him – Rom 10:9  “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Rom 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” 

People often mistakenly think that God is a big sugar daddy in the sky who won’t punish anyone for doing wrong. They forget that the book of Genesis tells how God destroyed the whole world with a Flood because men were committing wicked acts continuously (like they are today) – Gen 6:17 “And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.” While God promised to never again destroy the earth with a flood, He did say He would destroy it with “fire” – 2Pe 3:10 “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” 

If you don’t have a bible I urge you to get one, preferably a King James version, and start reading it like there’s no tomorrow, because frankly, there just may not be a tomorrow – for you. If you’ve read the bible before and just haven’t taken the step to ask Jesus to save your soul, there’s no time like the present, why wait? Wait for what? The End will happen so quickly, there won’t be time for anyone to get saved once God’s judgment begins. So don’t put this off, turn to Jesus now, believe that He is God, believe that He died for your sins, turn away from sin, and receive Him as your Savior and Lord. It’s as easy as saying a simple prayer in your own words admitting that you’re a sinner in need of His salvation. I’m sure you won’t regret it, for He is Faithful and True!

Jesus Was White, Not Black

Humiliating White people who happen to stop to hear them preach on the street is a favourite pastime of the Hebrew Israelites. (Screenshot from a Youtube video entitled “Israelites- White man Cries and Accepts his fate according to the Scriptures”)

It is a scene that has played out often on the streets of many large cities in the United States. Now, it is increasingly becoming a common occurrence in the large cities of the United Kingdom. A group of Black men stand in the street, preaching in loud voices what at first appears to be a group of Christian street preachers. But, they are dressed in outlandish costumes, an eclectic mix that echoes Afrofuturism and post-apocalyptic American movies. They always seem to have a Bible verse ready to explain their ideology, or respond to questions. They shout. They use profanities. They are the Black Hebrew Israelites. Their videos are seen by thousands of viewers across the world on YouTube.

They claim that they represent the ancient Twelve Tribes of Israel and have been sent to inform all the other Israelites of their identity ahead of the imminent Second Appearance of Jesus. These Twelve Tribes, after a long history of being enslaved and oppressed by every nation on earth, are today known as African Americans, Hispanics, Caribbeans and Native Americans. Any ethnicity outside these groups cannot claim an Israelite ancestry or identity. In reality, The Black Hebrew Israelites are a latter day manifestation of the Black Jewish movement established by Wentworth A. Matthew, William S. Crowdy etc. There are many religious communities who have adhered to the teachings of the aforementioned Matthew et al, but these new groups distort the Bible to teach racial hate, particularly antisemitism. https://blogs.timesofisrael.com/two-hebrew-israelite-biblical-verses-examined/

These groups of black men going around preaching a false narrative that Jesus Christ was black attempt to prove it by taking verses from the Bible out context, but when examined by comparing scripture with scripture, the bible verses they use don’t even come close to proving it. In this article I will take you through the bible and what it has to say about the ethnicity of the historic and biblical Jesus Christ as well as the race which bred Him. I’m certain that by the time we finish our journey together you will know without a shadow of a doubt that Jesus wasn’t black and that the “Jesus was black” narrative is a false one.

You may or may not know that Jesus was a descendant of King David whose lineage is recorded in the book of Matthew as follows –

Matthew 1:1–16 (NKJV): 1 The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:

2 Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers. 3 Judah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram. 4 Ram begot Amminadab, Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon. 5 Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse, 6 and Jesse begot David the king.
David the king begot Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah. 7 Solomon begot Rehoboam, Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa. 8 Asa begot Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot Uzziah. 9 Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah. 10 Hezekiah begot Manasseh, Manasseh begot Amon, and Amon begot Josiah. 11 Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers about the time they were carried away to Babylon.

12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel. 13 Zerubbabel begot Abiud, Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor. 14 Azor begot Zadok, Zadok begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud. 15 Eliud begot Eleazar, Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob. 16 And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.

1Sa 16:6  And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the LORD’S anointed is before him.
1Sa 16:7  But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
1Sa 16:8  Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
1Sa 16:9  Then Jesse made Shammah to pass by. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
1Sa 16:10  Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The LORD hath not chosen these.
1Sa 16:11  And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.
1Sa 16:12  And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.
1Sa 16:13  Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward.
1Sa 17:42  And when the Philistine (Goliath) looked about, and saw David, he disdained (looked down upon) him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.

H122 אָדֹם ‘âdôm aw-dome’ From H119; rosy: – red, ruddy. H119 אָדַם ‘âdam aw-dam’ To show blood (in the face), that is, flush or turn rosy: – be (dyed, made) red (ruddy).

Black skinned people don’t blush and don’t have “rosy skin tones.” Note that “adam” was the first man’s name, as in “Adam” and Eve! Yes, Adam the man created by God was “white” having a “ruddy” or “rosy” complexion. H6703 “white” צַח tsach tsakh From H6705; dazzling, that is, sunny, bright, (figuratively) evident: – clear, dry, plainly, white.
H6705 צָחַח tsâchach tsaw-khakh’ A primitive root; to glare, that is, be dazzling white: – be whiter.

David was not only FAIR of complexion but his countenance was “dazzling white!” This may refer to a brightness that shines on the face of men and women who are filled with the spirit of God like Moses, David, Jesus, many of the prophets, and others. To explore this phenomenon further and for a verse by verse refutation of the false teaching that Jesus was black, go to this page https://www.followintruth.com/does-the-bible-say-jesus-was-black

David had very white complexion and likely RED HAIR. His “ruddy” complexion means that his skin had a “reddish” or pinkish, possibly even orange tint to it, much like the Scottish, Irish, German, Dutch, Swedish, and English peoples have. It’s common for these peoples to have RED hair; Prince Harry of England is a good example with his bright red hair and very white skin. Notice also the “ruddy” or “rosy” blush of his cheeks.

Her Nazarites were purer than snow – נזיר nazir does not always signify a person separated under a religious vow; it sometimes denotes what is chief or eminent. It is applied to Joseph, Gen_49:26.

Blayney therefore translates here, Her Nobles.

“Her nobles were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk;
They were ruddier on the bone than rubies; their veining was the sapphires.”

On which he remarks: – “In the first line the whiteness of their skin is described, and in the second, their flesh;” and as גזר gazar signifies to divide and intersect, as the blue veins do on the surface of the body, these are without doubt intended.

“Milk will most certainly well apply to the whiteness of the skin; the beautiful ruby to the ruddiness of the flesh; and the sapphire, in its clear transcendent purple, to the veins in a fine complexion.”

That’s about as clear a description as one can find in the Bible of white-skinned people whose veins can easily be seen. Conversely, blue veins are much harder to be seen, if at all, on a black or dark skinned person. The Nazarites were men of the Hebrew race set apart by God for special purposes; among them were Samson, Samuel, Joseph, and John the Baptist. You can read all about Samson in the book of Judges 13, 14, 15, and 16, the prophet Samuel in 1 Samuel 1:1 through verse 28, and John the Baptist in Luk 1:15.

NOTICE that the Nazarites were OF THE HEBREW RACE. This is critical to our study since the descriptions of them above were that they had WHITE skin and ruddy complexions, just another witness showing that the pure Hebrew race from which JESUS sprang, was WHITE, not black.

While there were half-Hebrews who had darker skin due to intermarriage with foreigners outside of the Hebrew race, as in the case of one of Moses’s wives one of which is thought to have been either Ethiopian or Cushite [1], that union in no way affected the ethnicity of Jesus Christ because He didn’t come from the lineage of Moses, but from the lineage of King David. For more on this go to https://www.jcblog.net/hebrews/7/13-14/jesus-descended-from-judah-not-levi

Son 5:10  My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand. Most scholars agree that Solomon was a type of Jesus Christ, and is here prophetically referring to Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. This verse makes a strong case for Jesus Christ being a “white man,” not black. Many people have been led to believe that all Hebrews had or have “dark” skin, but that simply isn’t the case. We assume it’s so because some of the Jewish people have olive skin tone, but some also have “white” skin. The Ashkenazics of European origin have white skin, while the Shephardics of the Mediteranian area have olive or darker toned skin. There has been much written as to why that is, but for the purpose of this study I won’t get into it. You can find out more about it online or in libraries. Some say many of the modern day Jews in Israel aren’t descended from the Hebrews at all but are of Turkish origin from Khazaria.

So, why is it important whether or not we believe that Jesus was black? In today’s climate of extremist groups like Black Lives Matter and the Jesus Was Black anti-white preachers of error, it’s more important than ever. I believe the spirit behind such error is out to rob the white races of their physical and spiritual heritage as descendants of the Hebrews. It’s not a well-known fact perhaps but many of the black race are more prejudiced against whites than whites are of blacks, and this deeply rooted hatred is being fanned more and more right before our eyes. In the news daily, as black people aggressively demand more and more rights even though they’ve been given more than ever before, it’s never enough for them. They constantly scream “injustice” and cry “discrimination” even where none exists. For example, if a white person doesn’t stop to talk to them though they’re a complete stranger, right away, some blacks will accuse the white person of being prejudiced. I’ve had this happen to me on a few ocasions. It’s ridiculous of course, as is the fact that the news media plays it up whenever a black person is shot or assaulted by a white person, but is silent when a white person is assaulted or shot by a black person. More blacks commit crimes than whites do. Don’t take my word for it, go to the Department of Justice website and look at the crime stats re crimes committed by black men before you start ranting and raving that I’m a bigot.

Does injustice happen? Of course, but we’re hearing only one side of the issue lately, the black population isn’t the only one who has experienced injustice at the hands of the authorities (police, courts, etc.). Whites have also suffered injustice at the hands of police and the court system, it really isn’t as one-sided as the extremists would have us believe. Many races, the Armenians, American Indians, and Jews to name just a few, have suffered worse persecution, enslavement, and even genocide, than has the American Negro [2], but those peoples aren’t crying for government handouts and special treatment. Having been mistreated in the past is no excuse for violence, vandalism, looting, and rioting in the present. These extremist’s narrative is UNJUST because it’s slanted to make themselves appear to be innocent victims when oftentimes police have no choice but to use force in order to PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM HARM. Are police supposed to just stand there and do nothing while some crazed person with a knife or gun is running towards them intent on causing them bodily harm? The answer should be obvious. If the crazed person is white and gets shot by police, no one cries foul, but if a black person gets shot the black community immediately cries foul, riots and protests ensue and the newsmedia loves to sensationalize it all by replaying scenes of claimed police brutality over and over for weeks on end. Why? Because the media is paid for by bigshots in corporations that are filled with anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-white racists who would love to see America torn apart and burned to the ground if possible. The scales of Justice are being tipped alright, but not in the way we’re being led to believe.

I predict that if their false narrative isn’t stopped, it won’t be long before society witnesses a full on race war which would be disastrous all around; blacks won’t gain from it like they think. I believe that if they don’t stop accusing the authorities of injustice (where none exists which is not to say that it doesn’t sometimes exist) and stop crying prejudice whenever they don’t get what they want – they will be disliked more than ever. By constantly grumbling about not have “equal access” and “equal rights” when in fact many of them have more rights and access than others do these days, they’re doing themselves no favors.

Am I prejudiced against blacks because I’m just pointing out the other side of racism, the side that few dare talk about in any public forum or venue? No! I don’t do this to fan the flames of racism – far from it! My intention in writing this article was to engender thought and from there, honest dialogue about what’s really happening in the USA. I believe the extremist groups are being promoted, funded, and fueled by some hateful, rich and powerful persons who wish to create chaos. “Order out of Chaos” This term Order out of Chaos, in Latin Ordo ab Chao, is the slogan of the 33rd degree of Freemasonry. Agendas are formulated designed to give the powerful more power. Chaos is created, and media blitzed. Then cries go out for solution. That is, if you can create just the right problem or chaos you will necessarily get an outcry for the kind of solution or order that they wished to have all along.

People, I think that is what’s really happening all across the nation, and all of us, white, black, and every color need to open our eyes! We need to look beneath the surface of things and hear the lies being told us en mass; very little the mainstream media tells us is truthful. We all need to stop competing with one another and stop vying for power over one another. There ARE enough resources in the world that we don’t need to fight over them IF governments of the world would take care of their own people, but sadly many do not, which is why so many are starving and without medical care. So, yes, injustice exists all over the world but turning on one another isn’t the answer. We need to wake up to the fact that hidden powers are just USING us, all of us, to further their secret agenda, which is to destroy America so they can install their New World Order! America is the last bastion of freedom in the world so it’s Constitution must be dissolved for the secret agenda to materialize. ALL Americans must resist their plan and stop allowing themselves to be played for suckers by those who don’t care one iota about their wellbeing or success. They only care about enslaving all of us under their New World Order government (also called the One World Order), and if you think that’s a great idea go read how people were treated under fascists governments run by dictators like Mussolini, Stalin, Hitler and others. People living under those regimes lived through hell on earth.

In closing, I wish black extremists would stop and recall the words of Martin Luther King, whose anti-violence preaching and platform vastly improved the lives of blacks. Rev. King would not have approved of the defacement of property, looting, hate speech against whites, and violence of today’s black movements. It would appear that the black population has forgotten MLK and his successful message and how sad that is, for people of all colors. If black people want to honor that great man’s message and achievements, why don’t they protest peacefully like he did? MLK set an example for all to follow, what a shame that so few do. God rest you Reverend King, may you and your message live in the memory of good men and women everywhere for all time.
