All praise and honor to YAHWEH who made all things in Heaven and Earth! So many people have skewed views of Father God. He is not to blame for many things that people blame Him for. He is Awesome, Powerful, Wonderful, Merciful, and Holy. According to His Word, "The LORD'S eyes scan the whole world to find those whose hearts are committed to him and to strengthen them"(2Chron. 16:9a, God's Word Translation). Let Him in your heart today. Look at Christ and how compassionate and wonderful He is. That is how the Father is. Christ Jesus said, "The person who has seen me, has seen the Father"(John 14:9b, GW).
"As God's co-workers we urge you not to receive God's grace in vain. For he says, 'In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.' I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation." 2 Corinthians 6:1-2 (NIV)
If Jesus is tugging at your heart to let Him in, don't refuse Him. You will never be good enough. Once He comes in; He will change you. Then He starts the process.
Once upon a time there was a wise king who sent His son far away to establish his kingdom in a new land.
His son was very faithful and did all correctly. He established a colony and community where all were equal and the King ruled. Then the son returned to the king but left an advocate for the colony.
Then after awhile, many were enemies of the new colony. Many of the new king’s men were killed, but still they remained true to the King, and the colony spread throughout the new land.
Then after two hundred years or so, the colony had grown so much, and had so much influence, that it began threatening the existing government of the land.
The emperor of this government was very sly. He knew that opposition to the colony had only made it grow, so he had a plan to change the values and structure of the colony by supposing to incorporate it into the old kingdom. What he really did was replace the true kingship of the colony with himself through political means.
This worked. Now the name of the colony stayed the same, but the practice and ideals of the colony were of the old kingdom.
Now within the colony, good men and women who would see certain truths of the true ideals of the colony and corruption of emperor’s teaching, and would from time to time speak up. This caused factions to be formed that knew these particular truths, but not all of the original truth or purity of the colony.
This has went on for many different generations.
Those who hold to many colony ideals, remember that the son of the king would return some day with an army and overthrow the old kingdom and all those who support it.
These still wait.
The above is a true story. It is the story of the Ekklessia of Christ and the Kingdom of God. This kingdom dwells in men’s hearts and lives. The emperor is Constantine of the Roman government. The Masonic, New World Order, etc. has infiltrated every church in America, in some way, and basically around the world. In fact the word church means physical structure and is contrary to what Christ set up. Masonic groups actually worship Lucifer, though they are very good at deception and many members never know this. The Catholic Church’s highest leaders are members of one of these One World Order groups as are many in government. There exists the religious occult and the occult itself has infiltrated every church in America for the most part. These wizards and witches love to get into leadership positions and often do. They actively shut down the power of God from happening and ensure lifeless atmospheres and sometimes erroneous teaching. This isn’t hard because the One Man system of doing things doesn’t allow fellowship and the lifeblood flow, which is all of the Body of Christ participating, being responsible for their own mind, will, and emotions salvation, and growing.
The New Testament was never lightning real to me until I took off the old glasses, or way I was looking at it, and put on the new glasses of revelation of what the Holy Spirit was trying to say. What caused me to do this was a lot of pain. I pray it won't take that level of pain to get you to look and see.
Jesus is truly the same yesterday, today, and forever. "Taste and see that the Lord is good." Try a chapter today. Pick a gospel if you have never read one. Luke or John speak well to our Greek/Roman mindset. Acts is a great adventure. Romans is convicting. And James will make you think.
Peace and joy to you in Christ.
Years ago there was a book called the Bible Code. The idea was that the future, or possibilities of the future were encoded in Hebrew and possibly Greek. Finding it involved numbers and many didn't agree with the evidence.
