1 Corinthians Chapter 1

PAUL, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of
God, and Sosthenes our brother,
2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are
sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every
place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and
ours:
3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the
Lord Jesus Christ.
4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which
is given you by Jesus Christ;
5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in
all knowledge;
6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:
7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our
Lord Jesus Christ:
8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless
in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his
Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus
Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions
among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind
and in the same judgment.
11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them
which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among
you.
12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of
Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized
in the name of Paul?
14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;
15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.
16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know
not whether I baptized any other.
17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not
with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of
none effect.
18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness;
but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will
bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of
this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew
not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them
that believe.
22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock,
and unto the Greeks foolishness;
24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the
power of God, and the wisdom of God.
25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the
weakness of God is stronger than men.
26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men
after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound
the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to
confound the things which are mighty;
28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath
God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things
that are:
29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us
wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in
the Lord.

1 Corinthians Chapter 2

AND I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of
speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus
Christ, and him crucified.
3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much
trembling.
4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of
man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the
power of God.
6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the
wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to
nought:
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden
wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known
it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have
entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for
them that love him.
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit
searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man
which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the
Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit
which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given
to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s
wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing
spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God:
for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because
they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged
of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct
him? But we have the mind of Christ.

1 Corinthians Chapter 3

AND I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as
unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were
not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and
strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are
ye not carnal?
5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye
believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that
watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man
shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry,
ye are God’s building.
10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise
masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth
thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is
Jesus Christ.
12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious
stones, wood, hay, stubble;
13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall
declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try
every man’s work of what sort it is.
14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall
receive a reward.
15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he
himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of
God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for
the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be
wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is
written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they
are vain.
21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or
death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
23 And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.

How To Be Perfect

28 Jul

July 27, 2014

I was thinking about a few things the past couple days. I began to realize that some people believe they are descended from apes, because that is what they were taught. People such as so-called “scientists” have been telling people that they are nothing but apes. And so , i begin to understand a little better. It is a new idea to some people that they are the children of God, and they are deeply loved, and they have a rich inheritance waiting for them in Heaven. They are the sons and daughters of a Heavenly King and Queen.  It’s because they were taught bad knowledge and told outright lies and deceived. I feel bad for people. And it makes me want to be kinder to them. Because i also gained more understanding in the past few days. And that understanding is that i preach about not judging people. And then, i discovered myself judging people. I had been doing it all along, but i never really was aware of it. But now i am. For example, i began to understand that i myself, a poor guy who drives a junker car, i have a tendency to make a judgment about people based on what they drive. Or if they ride a motorcycle, even, i might sometimes make some judgment about people, even though i don’t even know them. I caught myself doing it. And so now i am aware, and i try not to do that. But it is kind of like a habit, i noticed. It takes practice to try and be perfect. 

I never said i was perfect, and i never will be perfect. I thought about how i am unable to be holy in this world. I am unclean, unholy, and so weak and imperfect. But i have to do the best i can. I’m glad God helped me to See what i was doing. The other day i went over to a motorcycle event they had near our town called Run 21. I had never been to a bike event before and i wanted to go see. I met some of my brothers who rode their Harleys over there and they invited me to stop by and check it out. So after work i did. They had great music, some of the best live music in this area in a long time. A world class guitarist, and they told me the night before, on Friday they had a Zeppelin cover band. But anyway, my brothers invited me over to their camp, and so i went and checked it out. I thought about my biker brothers, and realized i don’t know much about this side of the family. But they are my brothers, just the same as my brethren who attend church every Sunday, and i love them all the same. Even so, my biker brothers seem to give me more respect and brotherly love than some of the rich folks who come to my work sometimes. The most disrespectful people it seems are the ones who have a lot of money. I don’t know why that is, it just seems to be that way. While i was at Run 21, i overheard some bikers talking, and one of them was talking to his buddy and he said “I don’t know why they just didn’t do it, gosh dang it”.

It made me realize that some people curse God’s name, and some people don’t. Some people have respect for God, and some people don’t. I had been kind of worried about the fact that i may not achieve 100 percent saving rate. After that, God made me understand that i focus on that too much. God said i should focus more on the fact that some people will Hear, and some people will Believe, and some will be Saved. Rather than focus on the fact that not everyone is going to make it into Heaven. And, besides, God told me, How do i even know 100 percent won’t be Saved? And i realized, as always, God is always right. I don’t know that.

Also, after hearing the biker saying gosh dang it, i realized i can’t just judge a guy because he is riding a Harley. I can’t judge anybody by looks, or by any thing. No, it makes me guilty. And so i am learning, and i am becoming more aware, and i am trying to show improvement.

I also received a Message from God, while i was reading the Scriptures. It happens sometimes that i will read a passage, and a part of it may stand out to me. And then a few days later, i will have understanding about that part of the Scripture. The other day we read James Chapter 3

9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we
men, which are made after the similitude of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My
brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and
bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine,
figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let
him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of
wisdom.

Well then, a couple days later i was at Run 21 listening to the music and the people cursing and such and suddenly i had understanding. While standing there, God told me that James 3 verse 10 was directed at me personally. Not just to me only, but it was a Message for me. That was me, because while i bless God, sometimes i grow impatient with my brethren and i may say something such as “those *~!@#$ idiots” or something similar. And i felt bad, because i do do that sometimes. And so, again, i get rebuked and i learn and i strive to do better. To try and be perfect. And that’s what brings me to todays Thought of the DAy, which is How to be perfect.

James Chapter 3

2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word,
the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

I searched my King James Version Pure CAmbridge edition Bible for the word perfect, because there are a lot of Scriptures that tell us how to be perfect, and references to perfection. So that could be a good assignment, to try and learn all the ways in the New Testament of how to be perfect. But to me, mainly i was attracted to James Chapter 3 verse 2. If any man can control his words, then he is being perfect. If he can control his tongue, then it is said he can bridle his entire body. So that is something that i learned. If i could learn to control my tongue, then i could learn to control my entire body. And thus, become perfect, in a way.

And so now i am going to practice and try to control my tongue better. That’s a new project for me to work on.

However, i think it would be a good study guide for me, if i only had more time to study. And the things i would study on would be first of all, to learn all the commandments that Jesus gave us in the New Testament. And after finding those, i would compare them in different versions of the Bible, even the Hebrew Roots Version, and so forth. Then i would study on how to be perfect, and try to discover all the ways i could try to become perfect. And, of course, compare these Scriptures among the different available versions of Scripture. That is so that i could learn it completely, and most accurately.

Well then, after thinking about all these things, i also thought about how some children hate their own parents. I thought about this, and it is unnatural. Most children don’t hate their own parents. And the ones that do, well, they are different than the rest. And the same seems to apply to people who hate God. These folks hate their own Father and Mother. It’s not natural. I think the reason people do that is because they have been misinformed. They have been lied to, and misled. They don’t know any better, because they were not taught properly. It seems people have been taught a lot of bad science and bad information. I hope that many people will Hear, Understand and Believe God’s Word. I think they will, because Jesus is certainly shining His Light on the world and showing us all a lot of understanding.

James Chapter 1

JAMES, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve
tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and
entire, wanting nothing.
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all
men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is
like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

2 Timothy Chapter 2

THOU therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ
Jesus.
2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses,
the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach
others also.
3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life;
that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned,
except he strive lawfully.
6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.
7 Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all
things.
8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from
the dead according to my gospel:
9 Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the
word of God is not bound.
10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may
also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also
live with him:
12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also
will deny us:
13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before
the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the
subverting of the hearers.
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that
needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto
more ungodliness.
17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenæus
and Philetus;
18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection
is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this
seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that
nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of
silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some
to dishonour.
21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel
unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared
unto every good work.
22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity,
peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do
gender strifes.
24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all
men, apt to teach, patient,
25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God
peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the
truth;
26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the
devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

2 Timothy Chapter 3

THIS know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters,
proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers,
incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers
of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from
such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive
silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the
truth.
8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also
resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest
unto all men, as theirs also was.
10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose,
faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at
Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all
the Lord delivered me.
12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer
persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving,
and being deceived.
14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast
been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which
are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in
Christ Jesus.
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, throughly furnished unto all
good works.

1 Timothy Chapter 6

1 Timothy Chapter 6

LET as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters
worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not
blasphemed.
2 And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them,
because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they
are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach
and exhort.
3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words,
even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is
according to godliness;
4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and
strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil
surmisings,
5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the
truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can
carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into
many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and
perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some
coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves
through with many sorrows.
11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after
righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto
thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before
many witnesses.
13 I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things,
and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good
confession;
14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable,
until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:
15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only
Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man
can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom
be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not
highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who
giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to
distribute, willing to communicate;
19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the
time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding
profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so
called:
21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be
with thee. Amen.

The first to Timothy was written from Laodicea, which is the chiefest city of Phrygia
Pacatiana.

July 25, 2014

I was thinking about a few different things today. Yesterday when i was reading in the book of James how James tells us that we must not only have faith, but we must also have works. Because, he says, we cannot be saved just by having faith. He says we must also have works, which then makes our faith perfect. I thought about this, and it seems to be the same thing that Jesus tells us in the Scriptures about the wise man who built his house upon a rock. Jesus says the wise man heard what Jesus said, and then actually went and did what Jesus said. He not only believed, but he also followed Jesus teachings and did what Jesus said. He had faith, and he also had works. So i see a parallel between those two different Scriptures. It means, for example, that not only did someone read the Bible, and learn what Jesus said, such as how to pray the Lord’s Prayer. But after learning that, they also started saying the Lord’s Prayer every day. Sometimes twice a day. Sometimes three times a day.

Just for an example. But i believe that most people who begin to See the Light, now they have faith, and because of that faith, then they begin their works.

I have been also thinking about God, and people. Now the Scriptures tell us that in these endtimes, the world will be full of godless people. And i am beginning to see that it is so. I have been hoping for the past year now that we were going to tell everyone God’s Message of Peace and Love, so that all can live on Earth in Harmony, and then everyone would know, and believe and get to go live in Heaven in Eternal Life. And i have been thinking we could get 100 percent compliance. That is, every single person would be saved and get to go to Heaven. But now, i am afraid that a lot of people aren’t going to make it. First of all, i guess people have to believe in Heaven before they can decide they want to live there for Eternity. But not only that, many people have set themselves up to be the enemies of God. And we all know that is what Hell was created for. God’s Enemies.

The reason i see we are living in a world of godless people, is because i work with the general public everyday. And i hear the general public speak. And the general public has a dirty, foul mouth. I hear people use God’s name as a cussword everyday. Dad’s curse, mom’s use God’s name in vain, even children use God’s Name in vain. I hear people even curse God’s own Son. And i thought about this, and this is very irrational behaviour. Why would people do this? I just don’t get it.

It is irrational, because, let’s take me, for example. Lets suppose someone back east said about me, “I don’t believe that guy is real. I think he is a made up guy, and someone else is writing “his” blog.” So that person may not believe that i am real. However, it is very highly unlikely that that supposed person is suddenly going to start using my name as a curseword, or cursing things in my name, or blaspheming my name. No, probably not. They just won’t believe that i am real. Why would they start using my name as a cussword, just because they didn’t believe in me? They probably wouldn’t. Because that would be irrational behaviour.

However, in the case of God, people decide they don’t believe in God. They want to believe in science. Ha ha ha ha ha ! LoL ! First , lets take a look at this so-called “science”. One guy told me he doesn’t believe in God, he only believes in science. He said he just can’t believe in God, because then the Earth would only be 8 thousand years old. Now, this is his logic. This is his “science”. If the world is only x amount of years old, that indicates that it is impossible for God to exist. In his mind. That’s about the same logic as saying Does God exist? Well, how big around is the Earth? However, lets take a look at the genius ideas running around in his head. He can’t believe in God, because he thinks the Earth is x amount of years old. So, according to his science, this is what happened. This is how he believes the universe was created. OK, a long time ago there was nothing. Not a thing. No air. No God. Nothing existed. And then, because of “science”, suddenly, the Sun appeared out of nowhere. Blazing hot and beautiful. Wow. That science is really amazing! And , not only that, the EArth also just appeared out of “nothing”. Just like that! Wow! isn’t science amazing! LoL And all the animals, and all the people, and all the food, and the oceans and lakes and rivers and water just popped out of nothing! And not only that, entire galaxies of stars, and suns, and planets just suddenly appeared out of nothing! Entire galaxies just popped out of complete nothingness! Yes, this is what he calls science. To me, it is not science, it is false science and complete foolishness. And God says in Scripture the false science will be exposed in the end days. And it is. You can read about this false science on the website http://www.fixedearth.com . Now common sense tells us that the Earth can’t be 200 billion years old, or whatever “scientists” say it is. Because one thing real science does tell us, is if the Earth was that old, the dust on the moon would be about 300 feet thick. And that is science. No one can pick up a rock, and look at it, and say i can guarantee you this rock is at least 300 million years old! Ha ha ha! Get a grip! Like i said before, people will believe just about anything you tell them. Except the Truth, that is.

OK, so people decide, they don’t want to believe in God. As in the case of not believing in me, being the blog writer, they just don’t believe in God. They don’t believe God is their Creator, they don’t believe they are the children of God. They don’t believe. However, now then, they go and do something far worse. They say We don’t believe in God, however, even though we don’t believe in God, we are going to take His Name and curse it. Even though we don’t think God is real, We are going to take His Name and turn it into a dirty cussword. We are going to use HIs Name to curse things and we are going to make His Name into a curse. We are going to make God’s Name into foul language. We are going to really offend God, our Father, His Son, and even our own Mother. And not only that, they blaspheme His Name, they curse His Son, whom He sent here to die for us, to SAVE us from Hell, they mock God, they call Him Names, and the godless people do all this, they teach their children to do it, and i have to ask Why? It is irrational. It’s not very smart. It’s one thing not to believe. It’s another thing to curse God. Do these people have some kind of death wish? Are they trying to commit spiritual suicide? Because that is what they are doing. They are making themselves enemies of God. They are going to end up where the enemies of God go. Hell for Eternity. And i thought about this, and why people do it, and it is irrational behaviour. So that makes me think it is Satan influencing people to do this to God. It is mean to first say that people don’t believe in their own Father. But then to take His Name and turn it into a curse, that takes things to a whole nother level.

I was thinking about this, because one of my co-workers curses God’s Name just about everyday i work around him. He curses God’s Name, he curses God’s Son, and i thought to myself, why does he hate God so much? What does he have against God so much to make him want to cuss God’s Name, and to blaspheme God’s Name? It’s not just irrational. It’s also very foolish.

It’s very sad. I thought about how mean people are to God and i just don’t know why people are so mean to God. I told God i’m sorry that people are so mean to Him, my Mother and to Jesus. I love God very much, and i just don’t understand. I’m afraid we’re not going to get 100 percent saved. Unless something drastic happens and a lot of people suddenly start to believe. But, according to Scripture, in the end times, only the Elect will be saved. Well, we have to try as hard as we can to send the Message then. Because how important is it, to save one soul from eternity in Hell? What are we going to do? The best that we can do.

I just don’t understand how people can say they just can’t grasp the concept of God, but they can believe that everything just popped into existence out of nothing. Yeah, that’s probably what happened. One day there was nothing, and the next day there was everything. Everything just appeared out of nothing. That’s what we call science. LoL

I’m afraid that if these people suddenly died and appeared at Judgement Day, then God would tell them that they cursed God’s Name and used it in vain. And that person might say I didn’t believe You were real God.

I’m afraid God might tell them “You believed in Me enough to use My Name as a curseword. Therefore, you go where all My enemies go and all the people who curse Me.”

Now i don’t think it is normal behaviour for people to act this way. So i have to think it is the influence of Satan on people. It’s one thing not to believe in God. It’s a completely different thing to curse God’s Name and blaspheme our Heavenly Father. Satan is the Destroyer. Satan only wants to cause people to die the second death, and to go to Hell with him. And it appears to me, from listening to the general public cursing God’s Name that Satan is going to have lots of company in Hell. But, i guess if people aren’t going to listen to Moses and the prophets, if they won’t listen to NOah, and if they aren’t going to listen to Heavenly Father, Heavenly Mother, and Jesus, then they probably aren’t going to listen to me, either.

Now it is one thing to believe in something and another thing to know something. There are some things that i believe, and there are some things that i know. Here is an example – let’s say a friend of yours came to you one day and told you there is a man in Bakersfield that can pick up Harley DAvidson motorcycle by himself with his bare hands. And your friend says he knows this is true, because he went there and he saw the guy pick up the Harley. Well you trust your friend and you believe him. He’s a credible witness. So you then believe there is such a guy in Bakersfield who can do that. You don’t know it, but you believe it, because you believe your friend. However, if you go to Bakersfield and you see the guy pick up the Harley, then you know it is true because you saw it happen.

As for me, there are some things i believe, and there are some things that i Know. I believe in God. But i also Know God is real. Because God spoke to me, I saw God’s Hand, I have heard God’s Voice and I saw God create miracles on Earth. God healed my friend, God healed me from drinking, overnight, and God also healed me from smoking cigarettes overnight. There were more things which i saw God do and i don’t just believe, I Know. Because I saw. I have seen God’s Hand. God is very real. Trust me, someday you are going to also know God is real. I just hope you learn before it’s too late. Because it’s one thing not to know for sure. But when someone tells you they Know it is true, then you better pay attention. I guess what it comes down to is whether or not i am a credible witness. I hope that i am. i will certainly try to be the best witness that i can. Because believing in God is the single most important thing we will ever do here on Earth. And helping others to believe is part of it.

James Chapter 1

16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.

James Chapter 2

MY brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of
glory, with respect of persons.
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;
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:
4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil
thoughts?
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?
6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and
draw you before the judgment seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are
called?
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 shewed no
mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith,
and have not works? can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed
and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are
needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
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.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils
also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had
offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was
faith made perfect?
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.
24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith
only.
25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when
she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works
is dead also.

Chapter 3

MY brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the
greater condemnation.
2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word,
the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us;
and we turn about their whole body.
4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are
driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small
helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things.
Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue
among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on
fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of
things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly
poison.
9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we
men, which are made after the similitude of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My
brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and
bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine,
figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let
him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of
wisdom.
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not,
and lie not against the truth.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual,
devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil
work.
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable,
gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits,
without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make
peace.

The Power Of The Church

Revelation Chapter 1

3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this
prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the
time is at hand.

Revelation Chapter 22

7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of
the prophecy of this book.

Today i thought of a way we can all be blessed by keeping the sayings of the prophecy of the book. But we’ll get to that a little later.

First though, i wanted to talk about a few web links i posted with different views of different doctrines. Now i begin to understand why, and what is going on. At first i thought, well, i can only offend some of the people some of the time. But it seems i can offend many people a lot of the time. But to understand what is going on, i had to think about what i am doing. And what we are all doing. And we are doing as scripture says. We reviewed this the other day from Matthew Chapter 7

JUDGE not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with
what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but
considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of
thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and
then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s
eye.

What we are doing, is, we are not attacking churches individually or singling anyone out or judging anyone or any church. What we are doing is we are tearing down the old church, and we are building a New perfect Church. We are throwing out the old doctrine that is not good doctrine like an old sweater. We are helping each other to See. As we ourselves are being able to See, we can then help our brothers to also See. Now in the New Church we are building, it is not like the old church. There is no bickering, or murmuring, or anything like that. We are all helping to build a New, perfect Church. A Church formed of people who only believe in one Doctrine – the teachings of Jesus. Our main belief is the number one rule Jesus taught us, to Love the Lord thy God with all our hearts and souls and might, and to love our brothers as our ownselves. And we do, in our Church, we love our brothers as our ownselves. In our Church, we aren’t separated by different beliefs, because we only have one belief – Jesus. So we don’t take offense when a brother or sister comes up and says to us “That sweater you wore yesterday is really out of style, and the colors and fraying make it an eyesore. Do you mind if i throw it out ?” And of course, we understand and we are helping to build the New Church too. So we say “Sure. And by the way, i’m not sure if you call that a hat on your head, but it’s terribly atrocius, and i hope you don’t mind if i throw it out with my old sweater.” And in this way we help each other to clean out all the bad doctrine and build a New Church based on Good Doctrine only. We are helping each other to See.

I also thought about some churches, churches who won’t change their doctrine and will continue teaching bad doctrine. Let me give you an example.

Now we know that the main rule Jesus taught us is to love our brothers as our ownselves.

Luke Chapter 10

25 ¶ And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him,
saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all
thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou
shalt live.

Now, let’s remember what James told us in Chapter 2

James Chapter 2

10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one
point, he is guilty of all.

James is pointing out that if we keep all the laws, and yet we break just one of them, we are just as guilty as if we broke all the laws. Now, here is a good example. If a church, any church, does not teach the First Rule, as in Luke Chapter 10 to love our neighbors as thyself, then that church is not teaching good Doctrine. That church is not teaching Jesus teachings, and that church is not following the Will of God, here on Earth. In fact, no one should even go to that church. Because if you do what that church tells you, you will lose your soul. Because they are not teaching you the Golden Rule. So for example, if the catholic church does not teach the nations of the world to follow the Golden Rule to be saved, then they are not carrying out the will of God. If the catholic church tells you that it’s ok to kill your brothers, for example, you can still go to Heaven, or if they don’t tell you it’s wrong and goes against what Jesus teaches us, and that we will lose our spiritual lives for disobedience, then they are causing people to learn false doctrine and to follow false doctrine. And this will cause people to lose their spiritual lives. If they are not teaching good doctrine, then they are teaching bad doctrine and they are not saving people’s spiritual lives. They are causing people to lose their spiritual lives. So, especially a church who is teaching one bad doctrine is guilty of all the Law. Especially the church. No matter how many good things a church does teach, if they are teaching one false doctrine, then they are just as guilty as if they were breaking all the law. If a church teaches one bad doctrine they are causing people’s souls to be lost. If your church does not follow Jesus’ Teachings, i would not go to that church, but instead, go to a church that does teach what Jesus taught us.

So if you know a church and the church does not teach the things Jesus taught us, and they do not teach us to love one another, then they are not members of the New Church. They remain members in the old , condemned church. Now if the catholic church is so powerful and supposedly they have all this power among the nations, they could teach all the nations of the world what Jesus taught us, to love one another. Then they would tell Israel, quit bombing and shooting your neighbors. They would tell the USA not to bomb their brothers, They would tell all the nations to love their brothers as their ownselves and they would bring peace to Earth. 

I don’t think that the catholic church is going to do that. So we must form a New Church based on the only good doctrine. Jesus’ Doctrine. And we know what power we have in the New Church. Our power is Prayer. And what shall we pray for? What shall we ask God for? Think, now. What is it we want to pray for? OK, i’m going to tell you what i think we should pray for

Revelation Chapter 1

3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this
prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the
time is at hand.

Revelation Chapter 22

7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of
the prophecy of this book.

That’s right, i think we should pray for the prophecies of the Book, as Jesus has told us. Now there is a particular group that i thought about praying for. At first, i thought about Dr King’s letter from jail that he wrote. And in Martin Luther King’s letter, someone suggested that the American negro needed to wait longer for advancement. The person told Dr King that it took hundreds and thousands of years for progress to develop and the people needed to give it more time. They needed to wait. However, Dr King replied that the American Negro has already been waiting for over 300 years. They are tired of waiting. And this was back in 1968, i believe. My point is, that we have all been waiting for Jesus return. For a long time. And who has waited the longest time of all? That’s right – the saints have been waiting all this time. They have been asleep, and they begin to wake up, but they are told to rest a little longer, until their fellowservants also should be killed

Revelation Chapter 6

9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the
souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the
testimony which they held:
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy
and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that
dwell on the earth?
11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was
said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their
fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they
were, should be fulfilled.
12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there
was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of
hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree
casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and
every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men,
and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and
every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the
mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from
the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the
Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to
stand?

And so this is what i believe the Church should be praying for. The saints, who are growing impatient. They have been waiting and waiting. I believe the Church should be praying for Jesus to return, quickly, and deliver us from evil. Pray for the saints. I will be praying for God’s Will to be done here on Earth, and i will be praying for the prophecies of the Book, and i will be praying that the fellowservants be killed, as they must, in order for the prophecies to come to pass. Because Jesus taught us to pray that God’s Will be done here on EArth, just as it is in Heaven

Matthew Chapter 6

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in
heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For
thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

And so i believe the Church should use it’s mighty power of focused prayer to pray that God’s Will be done in Earth, as it is in Heaven.  Just as Jesus taught us.
And then i would certainly expect to see some results.
