The Earth is Being Shaken-Man says "mother nature is out of control" But God says, "Man is out of Control"

Photo-Japan quake 2004
God is angry with the world, and with His creation, and He is shaking the earth...We are experiencing record breaking earth quakes around the is time for men every where to repent of their wicked ways while there is yet time....

OH and another thing God the Father-takes exception to being called "mother nature" so it is time for you in the media to repent also. Don't feminise God He is our Father, not our mother....

Hebrews 12:25-29
25. See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
26. Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29. For our God is a consuming fire.

WARNING to THE "APOSTLES" -From Andrew Strom

An Open Letter to Peter Wagner, Dutch Sheets & Other "Apostles".

I recently received a report of a new "Apostolic Network" headed up by Dutch Sheets which held a gathering in Florida last week to"carve up" territories for it's 'apostles', etc. I need to put in writing what I believe the Lord would say to these men. But first I need to remind us all of something.

On June 23rd, 2008, a group of "apostles and prophets" under Peter Wagner's headship stood on a stage in Lakeland at the Todd Bentley revival - to lay on hands and commission him, etc. But it was far more than that. Peter Wagner called it an "apostolic alignment."
He made the following statement before all the TV cameras and all the people:

"I take the apostolic authority that God has given me and I decree to Todd Bentley:
-Your power will increase.
-Your authority will increase.
-Your favor will increase.
-Your influence will increase.
-Your revelation will increase.

I also decree that:
-A new supernatural strength will flow through this ministry.
-A new life force will penetrate this move of God...

"Onlookers might have thought that Wagner was 'prophesying' the above statements. But actually what he felt he was doing was "decreeing" these things over Todd - since he was the 'head apostle'.

In a letter the following day, Wagner called this a "groundbreaking event" and stated that, "We are now in a place in what I see as the Second Apostolic Age..." (In other words,a "new era" of real apostles).

So how did that work out for you, Peter?

Well, literally within weeks we found out that many of the "miracles" at Lakeland had no foundation, and then Todd Bentley's wife separated from him apparently over an affair he was having - and the entire 'revival' fell to pieces in the worst way possible.

That's how it worked out.

All the big Charismatic leaders that had stood on that stage hardly knew what to do with themselves - they were so embarrassed. And none more so than Peter Wagner - after making an "Apostolic decree" like that. -Probably the most colossal disaster of his life.

So who pulled the rug out from under your "apostolic alignment", Peter?

I need to tell you that there are two responsible parties.
One is 'yourself' - clearly.
And the second is GOD - because He is now pitted against you and your so-called "apostles".
He is the one who did this to you.

You and your friends have presumed to an office and a place over the Body that is simply not yours, and God is in the process of taking you 'apostles' down - and all your "networks" with you.

Dutch Sheets - can I ask you please, what gives you the right to carve up the Body of Christ in North America and parcel it out like McDonalds franchises to all your buddies so they can be 'apostles' over their own "territory"?

Do you have any idea what you are playing with?
Don't you know that if your buddies are not real New Testament Apostles then all they are doing is painting huge targets on themselves and begging for the judgment of God?

How dare you treat the Body of Christ like a piece of Real Estate that you can carve up for your own aggrandizement?

Because of men like you, God is about to judge the leadership of the church.

Do they call themselves an "apostle"?

Well, God is going to put them to the test.

If they are not the real thing, they make themselves His 'enemy' because they are blocking His real Reformation.

Every self-proclaimed "apostle and prophet" is about to be put to the test.

Oh, if you call your group an "Apostolic Council of Elders" or something similar?
Expect God to come calling, and if you are not the real thing, expect Him to take you down.

The Lord God is coming to take back His church with great violence. And you guys are standing directly in His way.

I've heard that one of these big "apostles" in Canada once told his network that their "apostle-ness" would be judged by the 'noses and nickels' that they represented. (In other words, their "numbers" and their reaping of money). Hmmmm. If I didn't know better, I would call those the words of a hireling and a wolf.

As Lee Grady wrote about this 'Apostle-Mania':
"In some circles apostles demanded total allegiance from the leaders who were "under" them. Some required a policy of "tithing up," creating a monstrous organizational structure similar to a spiritual Amway. So-called apostles with huge "downlines" made exorbitant amounts of money. One leader even offered pastors the opportunity to become "spiritual sons" by contributing $1,000 a month to his ministry."

And yet here is what the TRUE apostle Paul wrote: "I think that God has set forth us, the apostles, last, as it were appointed to death... we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace... we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things..." (1 Cor 4:9-13).

Now THAT is true apostleship.

Tell me, Mr. Modern Apostle, do you match up to the New Testament apostles?
If not, what on earth do you think God is going to do to you if you claim that title falsely?

I believe that many true Apostles, when they do arise, will simply REFUSE to carry such titles in any way. They will "minimize" themselves, not exalt themselves. That is the heart of a true leader of God.

In closing, let me again warn those who have titled themselves"apostle" or 'prophet' in the modern church. God is coming to"clean house" and if you are not the real deal, expect Him to start with you. It is as simple as that. You need to repent urgently of your utter presumption. You have been warned.

Benny Hinn Finds Yet Another Means To Fleece The Flock!

While researching for a new video, I ran across this information, that I thought I would set out for the sheep to see...Ah Benny boy... there is always a way to make a buck, even in hard times isn't there?

Just what is there you won't do to make merchandise of the sheep?

Notice Benny's not wearing his priests collar, nor his White smock with the cross, nor the one emblazened with the Holy Ghost emblem! He's in his civies, and seems to have packed on a few pounds, kinda like Todd, the new competition, Bentley!…/

Oh my tis a true saying-"Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive"

Here is an even truer saying:
2 Peter 2:3-9
3. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
4. For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5. And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6. And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
7. And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
8. (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
9. The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

Sheep of California and followers of Benny boy, WAKE UP and don't let yourselves be taken advantage of by your Idol, for he will laugh all the way to the Bank!
I know you want your gold now Benny Boy but.....
Be sure old boy your sin shall find you out in the end!

Surely It Shall Not Be Well With The Wicked!

I have observed the wicked and their hearts are continually set to do evil.

To do that which is right is not in them, neither do they desire in any way to please God.

They rise up with evil on their hearts and they do not sleep unless they pursue it.

They have made a god of themselves, there is none besides them, to consider others does not enter their minds.

Their lives revolve arround their own satisfaction, as they strive to gratify their flesh in one way or another.

Satan seeks to drag them down and down and down, yet they resist him not, neither do they understand their end. They think God does not see, and He does not hear, and He does not care...

God makes it so easy for us to cry out, to seek Him, but so many choose to close their hearts off from Him. I know, as I observe those I observe, I get so angry and I hurt so badly, yet I know that God hurts so much more, because for Him, what I see, is multiplied manifold millions of times for His eyes, and His ears and His heart.....

O God I am so sorry that people reject You Lord, I'm so sorry O God, that people love their wickedness more than they love YOU.

Psalms 7:11
God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
There is coming a day saints where in all the wicked, and those that hate God, shall be cast alive into the lake of fire....

So Many Voices-And All Claiming to Be Right! We Must Pray for Discernment Saints!

Saints today we have need to be very careful to whom we listen...we need to be able to hear God's voice, and be more concerned with hearing His voice than mans. We need to be praying for discernment, and for God to reveal the true spirit and motive behind people.

Discernment is sorely lacking, in many but God is able to give you what you need saint of God, in order that you might be able to recognise those who are deceivers.

Deceivers never seem like deceivers at first glance-for the most part they blend themselves right in with the sheep-that is why they are able to get a foothold with the sheep. Sheep just love to follow after someone, anyone...
That is why it is written-If it were possible even the very elect of God would be deceived.

Satan is very subtle, and he weasels his way to and fro, seeking whom he may devour....He hates the true prophets of God, and he seeks to tear them down, and kill them. He has such a hatred for the Truth, that he wants to cut it off from the children of God. He wants to intimidate, separate, divide and conquer.

His followers can't stand to be questioned, they can't stand to be challenged, and when they are, then you see the true spirit behind the person. If people refuse to see the truth no matter how plainly it is presented to them, because they are blinded by their own self importance, or a wolfs persona, or their own celebrity...then beware and flee such a person.

Each of Satan's ministers is very proud, very self assured, very authoritative....but not with God's authority.

If there is no gentleness, no meekness, no humility, in a person, then be on guard saint of God. These qualities in some cases can be faked, but if we are truly seeking God's discernment then He will remove the blinders and we will see the wolf for who they are...

Pray saints, we must pray continuously for discernment in this hour, for wickedness and evil are increasing.

Does The Bible Contain God's Word's to Men?

Categorically YES.... a man or woman would have to be totally reprobate and Godless to think other wise...

The New Testament was written by Holy Ghost filled men, who walked with God, who chronicled the Words of Jesus Christ, and His instruction to them, and the body in general. God spoke to these men and they, through the vehicle of the written word, the scriptures have shared those words and their testimonies with us.

However when some men say that the Bible is not "The Word of God", in a sense they are correct, because Jesus is the Word of God.... But - the Bible is God's word's to men recorded, and men's testimonies of God.

The Bible is the scripture containing the Truth, and it is only understood in the true sense, by guidance and revelation of the HOLY SPIRIT!

How many hairs are split here, in regards to "The Word of God". I believe these men on the Internet who are so adamant in saying, that the Bible is not the Word of God, have not thoughtfully considered their words. They should consider that they may be turning some, that are simple, aside from reading the scriptures. I also think that those who rail against such men, are not themselves thoughtfully considering what these men are trying to say when they make such statements.
Jesus said:
Matthew 12:35-37
36. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Many express their beliefs via the Internet, some have a following, and some do not, some seek a following and some do not. However the common denominator amongst them is that all claim to be right. Whilst they bite and devour one another, they had all best beware lest they be consumed one of another.
There are those who say that God does not speak to His people today, they don't believe in hearing God's audible voice, because they say we have his Word the Bible-Why then did Jesus say, "My sheep know my voice"? To clarify... The Lord's voice may not always be an audible voice, heard by the ear, but heard in the soul, the inner man by the Spirit. One cannot even comprehend the scriptures without the Holy Spirits guidance.

Many do not believe in today's prophets or apostles- and we can see why they feel this way with all the wolves and false prophets out there, and those calling themselves apostles just to exalt themselves. Everything we need, they say is in the Bible, our final authority on everything. That is true, but we can also have a living current relationship with the living God, and our saviour Jesus Christ, through His Holy Spirit who lives within true born again believers.

The Bible-The scriptures clearly state that "Jesus is The Word"

John 1:1-14
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.

Jesus refers to "The scripture"
Mark 12:10
And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:

John 7:38
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

The disciples referred to "The scripture", and when they did they were referring to the only written scripture they had, which were those of the Old testament. They walked and talked with THE WORD-JESUS!

Paul said:
Romans 4:3
For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
16. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17. That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Neither The disciples nor Jesus called the Bible-"The Word of God" they called what they had at that time"The Scripture" ....

In the Old Testament there are references to "The word of God" and it says, "The Word of God came saying...." It was God speaking to them, just as Jesus speaks to His own through His Holy Spirit today! see: 1 Samuel 9:27, 1 Kings 12:22, 1 Chronicles 17:3

Revelation 19:11-13

11. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

13. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

However it is just as daft, for those who do not want to say that the Bible is the Word of God, to rail against those who say it is, because they both in their own way are correct.

What ever Jesus speaks to your soul is life.

A person can read the Bible all their life and never know God, because He has not spoken it to their soul by His Spirit, or if He has they have not heard, because they did not have ears to hear. Reading the Bible can not save you, your religious ways can not save you. Only the Father as He draws you by His Spirit, to life through Jesus Christ, can save you.

John 5:38-40-Jesus speaking here of Old Testament scriptures

38. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

39. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

40. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

Just something to make ya think saints!

When Men Are Subject to Religion and Not to God!

When men and women, follow after men, then they have become religious....they have forsaken their one true master-Jesus Christ....

The Serpent is more subtle than any beast!

U-tube is becoming quite a place for heretic hunters.... to those types of people I would say, be careful when you bite and devour one another, lest you be consumed one of another.

There are those it seems who sit in wait, looking to set a trap for their brothers and sisters, those who bait their brothers and sisters, those who constantly conspire to do evil, against the true children of God. Why? Because the children of darkness hate the children of light! And the children of darkness hate the Truth!

You can not love God, when you hate your brother or your are become a liar!

Saints we are living in a very dangerous time, a time in which if we do not have of The Holy Spirit, and we do not bear the fruit of that indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we are going to be deceived and then vomited out...God is cleaning house!

Men and women have brought curses upon themselves because of their wickedness against God, and soon they will start dropping like flies.

Be careful saints when you dig a pit for another, you may well fall into it yourself!

Proverbs 26:24-28
24. He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;
25. When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.
26. Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be showed before the whole congregation.
27. Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.
28. A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

Ecclesiastes 10:8
He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.
God's elect know His voice, and another they will not follow!!

Life Is Worth Living, No Matter What!

Photo shows where Mr J. A. Stark crashed his piper plane into the part of this building that contained the IRS offices, in Austin Texas this morning.
He was mad at his loss of money due to government actions. He felt his life was not worth living, so first he blew up his house with his wife and child inside (who escaped harm), then flew his plane trying to kill even more people. He was of his father the devil. This man flew himself straight into Hell for all eternity!

Saints as the children of God, our life is always worth living, even though it may get tough at times, God is working something out in us, for our eternal benefit, during those tough times.

Our lives should not consist in the abundance of our possessions, because our lives are hid with Christ in God. We should not measure the value of our lives by the amount of happy days we have, but in the fact that God is keeping us alive for His purpose and for His glory.
There is always some brother or sister who is walking and even harder path than we are, and we must Praise God even in heaviness of spirit. We must remember that God is our deliverer, our High Tower, and our ever present help in times of trouble.
Unless our security is in Christ in this hour, we will fail and we will fall just as this man.

Let Him Who Thinks He Stands - Take Heed lest he fall!!!

Saint of God, Satan is going to be allowed to tempt you, and God is going to try you, are you ready?

You may think, “Oh sure, I am solid I have no fear of letting God down”
Just remember saints, Peter was with the very God of Heaven Himself, and what did he do when the chips were down?

Do you consider yourself more able than him?
Let him who thinks he stands, take heed let he fall.

I have found that when I think I can stand, God lets’ me fall for a second, that I might remember my lack and my need to press in even closer to Him.

I fail God, and come so short at times; I panic once in a while when stuck in the furnace, and loose my focus, and I thank God that He forgives me.

I covet the faith of the 3 Hebrew children; I covet the faith of my dear brother Job. But I know that if I just keep pressing in to God, and seek His strength, and ask for more faith, that He will make me victorious in the end, and He will make me able to stand in the end, but I must press in.

It is time to repent of our "self " assurance, and seek God for His strength, and His ability to do a work in us, and make us ready for His coming Kingdom on this earth. He does want us to find our sufficiency in Him, not ourselves or any teacher or leader, or anyone.

He wants to be our central focus, He wants to be our teacher, He wants to lead us by His Spirit. He does not want us seeking after men to fulfill our needs, no matter how godly they may appear, or seem. He wants to lead us, He alone is the Good shepherd.

God has revealed many things to me in this last year.

One thing he has shown me is that when I thought someone was so vile, and so wicked, that they deserved to die, and I actually wanted them to die, just to be free of having to witness such evil.

That I had allowed a spirit of murder to take up residence in my soul.

We have to be so careful for our own souls saints.

God has shown me Mercy and forgiveness and He has shown me His Greatness.

He took that wicked person into the pit that they may cry out for Mercy, he delivered them into the hand of Satan, that their soul might be saved.

He heard them, when they cried unto Him, and created in them a new heart, and a pure mind. He made them a new creature for His Glory, and He showed me, that I sell Him short.

So saints, never, never give up, even on your worst enemy, even on the person you despise the most, because of their evil ways. Because God may have a plan for the one you think is the most beyond salvation.

God loves to prove Himself to His children, to show them His awesome Greatness, so pray for God to soften your heart saint of God, and press into God more than you ever have before, because we are living in the day and hour that our Savior Shall Come!

May we all be found ready, and without spot or blemish for His Glory!!!

And saints, trust God and follow Him alone, for He is the only one who will keep you on the straight and the narrow Path that leads to eternal salvation.

"LORD, I am so sorry that I sell you, so very short, at times, because Lord with you all things are possible!"

The Guidance And Gifts of The Holy Spirit Are What Keep The Children of God From Deception!

Photo-False Prophet Kim clement and his wife. (this man is a warlock (sorcerer), and his wife is a witch)

I visited an inmate in a prison yesterday, a first time event for me.... but I came away knowing that I had been in the presence of the most high God who dwells within this young man....

Prison walls are no barrier to the open, sincere and repentant heart, is all He requires.

This young man was witnessing to one that is lost and visiting him, along with myself, and telling how he once was blind, walking through life as if his hands covered his eyes, but now how God had opened his eyes and given him discernment to be able to tell the difference between the sheep and the goats, and the great Peace that God has given to him, and how God is providing his every need.

He also told us of an instance of a woman minister coming into the prison with a Kim Clement video, and how he was not drawn to pay any attention to what Clement was saying. Then how the woman had given each person a brochure, and when this young man opened it, he saw Kim Clement sitting and his wife standing behind him with her jewelry on...and the background of the brochure faded so that all he could see was Clement and his wife, and the Holy Spirit told him, "This man is a warlock and his wife is a witch...

I searched the Internet and from the vivid way the young man described the photo in the brochure, I think I have found the exact picture, and that is what I have posted above.

God is Good!

There are many who are free to walk the streets, unlike this young man, and there are many in the "Church" who consider themselves free, who are in bondage and completely without any discernment.
There are many in the "church" who follow blindly after False Prophet Kim Clement.
This young man however is more free than many in the "church" and has been given the gift of discernment to know a Warlock and a Witch when he sees them.

He also said God had showed him the error in the word of faith doctrine and its preachers like Joyce Meyers, instantly.
I tell you saints when a heart is sincerely seeking God and His Truth, He doesn't allow us to be deceived and led off into gross error...He is the Good Shepherd!

I must tell you that this young man knew nothing of Kim Clement or Joyce Meyers, or the "word of faith" doctrine, before this woman came to the prison.

We must pray saints, because this false Word of Faith doctrine, and all these false teachers, seem to have free reign in the prisons. Prisoners do not need to be led into more gross error, by the deceiver.
This young man is being used mightily of the LORD, please pray that God will use him to open eyes to false doctrine that men may be saved

This young man spends his days in the word of God, and God speaks to him in dreams and through His word. God has done a mighty thing. The Holy Spirit is not stopped by walls!!!

I came away greatly encouraged in the Greatness of our God, and convicted to spend more time in the Word and more time in prayer. The glow of God is so very present in this young man, that I covet the intimacy that he has with the LORD...saints we are to covet the good things of God.

Oh, and I almost forgot, he also shared, another dream he had, of walking bear footed and handing out this brilliant white fluffy substance to starving people (he is always barefoot in all his dreams (as Moses was told-remove your shoes, for the ground on which you tread-is HOLY)..)
I will only touch briefly on what we are able to discern is the interpretation...."There is coming a time of great hunger (perhaps both spiritual and literal) for the children of God, but God is going to feed His children, as He feed His children in the wilderness, with Manna from Heaven, and when given of this manna, even a small amount shall satisfy!"

May you be blessed and encouraged saints of God!!

A Wretch Such as Me....

I don't know about you saints, but when put under extreem pressure, and strain, at certain times..I don't like what I see in myself... I see a flawed vessel... I can clearly see that I am but carnality my inability to put myself in check and control the emotions.. and even if it is just unloading on the husband...or sounding off on an unsaved daughter when she has pushed me over the limit.... it is not good!

Some may read this and rejoice,...saying..."See I told you she is not so good"...hey I have never been good, there is only one who is Good and that is God!

I don't know about you, but I am nothing but a wretch saved by the blessed Grace of the Most High God!!!

Jesus told the parable of the Pharisee, a man who was apt to keep all his religious tradition, and a common old publican who went to pray:

Luke 18:10
10. Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
11. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
12. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
13. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
14. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

I often have to pray please Lord -"Please, remember I am but dust"... too often for my liking...

I sometimes wonder if I will ever get the victory over my flesh, and be able to rule my spirit with an iron hand...and be continuously pleasing to my God....Pray for me is my desire to be a vessel of honor unto the LORD.

From The Heart of A Godly Man!

I strongly recomend that you listen to the entire sermon, which can be heard on audio, by going to Key in David Wilkerson-A Call To Anguish from Sept 2002, listen past the song at the end...

God Is Drawing the Gentiles Back To Their Jewish Roots"??????

I happened to run across some comments on the Internet the other day, one was a claim that God is bringing His People (the gentiles) back to their "Jewish roots"!

It so saddens me that so many are more concerned with becoming "Jewish" than they are in becoming "Christ like"...and yes I know, Jesus was a Jew...But what came first-Jesus or the Jews?
Jesus was God manifest in the flesh...and before the Jews were as a people-He Was...In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

God is not in the process of bringing His people back to our "Jewish" roots, (Which unless we are of Jewish ancestry, we don’t have to begin with.)

God is in the process of separating and drawing a people both Jew and Gentile unto Himself, that we all might be called “The children of God”.

Many have separated themselves from the simplicity that is in Christ Jesus our Lord, yet not separated themselves from the world and the things of the world.

We need to go back to the CROSS, not our non-existent "Jewish roots"!!!!

Woe to them who say they are "Jews", when they are not, but are of the sin-a-gog of Satan!!!!!

(Yes I know there are many interpretations of this verse...especially by replacement theology folks.)

Revelation 2:9
I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

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

God loves the Jewish people, He created them, and He will yet deal with them, He has not forsaken nor replaced them. They as a whole, are under temporary blindness, until the times of the gentiles be fulfilled.

"The children of God", are under a new Covenant that was paid for in full by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. In Christ Jesus there is neither Jew nor Greek, male nor female....period.!

Galatians 3:24-29
24. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
26. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
29. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

The following scripture was dropped amongst the comments on this particular sisters blog. Whom I might say God is using to get some particular truths out to the general public.
Some take the following scripture and say - well there you are a woman can not share the gospel in any way shape or form!

1 Timothy 2:12
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

What about these next scriptures?

Joel 2:28-31
28. And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29. And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. -there's your true end time signs and wonders by the way-not feathers, gold dust and gems!

Acts 2:16-20
16. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17. And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18. And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
19. And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20., before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

God said.."Your sons and your DAUGHTERS Shall Prophesy"....

One has to open ones mouth, and make an audible sound, amongst both saved and unsaved alike, in order to prophesy, as in Anna the prophetess!

Listen, God will speak through a Donkey if necessary....HE is NO respecter of persons....period!

Jesus did not say, "Only men shall be permitted to share the gospel and witness of me"

Now reasonably, a woman should not usurp authority over a Godly man, nor interrupt a man while he is in the process of preaching or teaching. Neither should they interrupt another woman, but they should prefer others, and wait with patience to be used of God.

A Godly woman who has a family to take care of, does not have time to pastor a whole flock of people, her duty is to her children, and her husband.

We can reasonably see the point of a man, for the most part, being the one to pastor a congregation, or go out on the evangelistic field. We can reasonably see the point of a man for the most part being the leader. That however does not preclude a woman who is in order, being used to Glorify the Lord, prophesy, share the gospel, and teach when led of the LORD. None should lift themselves up, as the men, they should remain humble, knowing whom it is they serve, and to whom it is they shall give account.

Then there are those who are insisting that to be pleasing to God, we have to go back to keeping all the "Laws of the Old Testament"....Christ is become of no effect to them that are justifying themselves by striving to keep all the Laws of the Old Testament...

Galatians 5:1-6
1. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 2. Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
3. For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
4. Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
5. For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
6. For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

The Whole Law of God can be summed up as this-"Love God with all your heart, mind and soul and Love your brother as yourself"...

Because if you have the love of God and His Spirit dwelling in you, and you love your brothers and sisters, you will not commit adultery, you will not murder, and hate, you will not steal from another, you will not bear false witness, or lie, you will not back bite and gossip, you will not covet, rather you will be content with such as you have, because the love of God truly lives in you!

Romans 13:8-10
8. Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
9. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
10. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Romans 3:29
29. Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

I am a Gentile saved by the Grace of Almighty God and counted as one of His children.

He who lives by the law and is guilty of breaking one law, is guilty before God of breaking them all!!!!!

James 2:8-13
8. If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9. But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10. For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
11. For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.
12. So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
13. For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath showed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.

Galatians 3:11
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

In other words it is not what we do, that justifies us before God, it is not the pursuit to keep the laws, it is our faith in what Jesus Christ has done for us, that justifies us. If Jesus Christ is in you, He writes His law upon your heart, that you might not sin against Him. He equips you to be able to resist the temptations of the devil, that you might stand before Him without shame.
I speak all these things in love, that we may all think on Him, and seek Him, and His kingdom, and seek to be like Him, in all his character and nature. Seek these things, not your non-existent "Jewish roots"...I speak these things to misguided gentiles.
