A Better Way

18 Apr

April 17, 2015

Earlier i thought about how hardly no one is following Jesus teachings! True Christianity! No one hardly. Everyone is eating meat and breaking every commandment of God. Then i begin to understand what i asked before – why will so few find the way? Because, few are hardly even looking! Some, even when you show them the Way, they say, nahhh, that’s too narrow, that’s too straight. Some you tell them, Here’s how to get to Heaven, and they say Nahhh we want to go to the bar and get drunk instead. I guess some people prefer the smell of beer farts, vomit and urine. Mmmm what’s for dinner? So i guess that’s another reason that so few will find the way. Few are looking. Many don’t believe. They think that the Word of God is not true, or else they just don’t want to keep God’s commandments.

Also earlier i mentioned about how God sends different people to help His Church. A few months ago i talked about some people who say that if we are to be “good” Christians, then we should go about “witnessing” to all the other folks. Such as going door to door. However, as we can see from Scripture, not everyone is sent as an evangelist. Most people are told to pray in private. So if you are not called to be an evangelist, or a “witness”, then it’s not necessary or required of you. Certainly people are free to do whatever they like, but those who are called will certainly know.

Gospel of the HOly Twelve Lection 93

8. For as I send Apostles and Prophets so also I send Evangelists And Pastors—the eight and forty pillars of the tabernacle—that by the ministry of the four I may build up and perfect my Church. and they shall sit in Jerusalem a holy congregation, each with his helper and deacon, and to them shall the scattered congregations refer in all matters pertaining to the Church. And as light cometh so shall they rule and guide and edify and teach my holy Church. They shall receive light from all, and to all shall they give more light.

Also in Lection 93 i understand a little better the saying “Many are called, few are chosen”. This could also mean that many people are called to the Church, but few are chosen to be the pastors and evangelists and apostles, and so forth. Now some people do feel the calling to be evangelists, or missionaries and travel around the world telling people about Jesus. I heard about some folks that wanted to be missionaries in the so called “Christian” church, so they spent a year vacationing in France so they could learn French, then they could go and take vacations all over the world, and call it “missionary work”. Now we read about those folks in Scripture

Matthew Chapter 15

7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth
me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the
commandments of men.

Now if these so called “missionaries” go overseas and tell people about Jesus, and tell people wrongly that it is OK to eat flesh, and lie, and call God a liar, and call the Word of God false, and a lie, then these people aren’t doing anybody any favors. They are teaching the commandments of men, and worshiping Jesus in vain. Why? Because they are teaching false doctrine! They are an abomination, eating flesh, and then they go around the world telling others to be abominable too! And they tell them, they can go to Heaven, even though they just made them lose their soul by teaching them wrong. Of course, these so called “missionaries” are from the same local churches that spread false doctrine and abominable teachings to people and call it “Christianity”. They like to think their works will get them into Heaven, but they have wasted all their efforts and taught people the exact opposite of what they need to know. Let me warn you brother, if your teacher or pastor starts telling you that you can just “skip” over and “ignore” some Scriptures, you better get a new pastor. If your pastor or missionary eats meat, then he is a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”, he’s a false prophet and he will devour your soul, and possibly many other people’s souls. These people worship Jesus in vain, because when they appear in Heaven, their name will not be in the Book of Life. And they can say “Didn’t we prophesy in Your Name, and teach people about you?” And Jesus will say “Depart, you workers of iniquity” because they sin and they taught other people to sin and be abominable and lose their souls. Again, we can see ahead into the future, and we can definitely see that there really will be wailing and gnashing of teeth by people who got deceived, and people who thought they could pick which commandments they wanted to keep.

Gospel of the Holy Twelve Lection 51

12. And certain of the Elders and Scribes from the Temple came unto him saying, Why do thy disciples teach men that it is unlawful to eat the flesh of beasts though they be offered in sacrifice as by Moses ordained.
13. For it is written, God said to Noah, The fear and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the field, and every bird of the air, and every fish of the sea, into your hand they are delivered.
14. And Jesus said unto them, Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias speak of you, and your forefathers, sayings This people draweth nigh unto Me, with their mouths, and honour me with their lips, but their heart is far from me, for in vain do they worship Me teaching and believing, and teaching for divine doctrines, the commandments of men in my name but to satisfy their own lusts.
15. As also Jeremiah bear witness when he saith, concerning blood offerings and sacrifices I the Lord God commanded none of these things in the day that ye came out of Egypt, but only this I commanded you to do, righteousness, walk in the ancient paths, do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God.
16. But ye did not hearken to Me, Who in the beginning gave you all manner of seed, and fruit of the trees and seed having been for the food and healing of man and beast. And they said, Thou speakest against the law.
17. And he said against Moses indeed I do not speak nor against the law, but against them who corrupted his law, which he permitted for the hardness of your hearts.
18. But, behold, a greater than Moses is here! and they were wrath and took up stones to cast at him. And Jesus passed through their midst and was hidden from their violence.

For me, personally, i prefer to write about positive things. Happy things. I grow weary of repeating myself about Lazarus, and repenting, and obeying God’s commandments. Because, many people don’t even listen, so i begin to feel like it doesn’t do much good. But also because i prefer to focus on positive things. Now i know that God is calling sinners to repentance, not the righteous. So there must be some calling of sinners to repentance. I thought i would like to have more balance. That is, balance between talking about people who are going to hell, and talking about people who are going to Heaven. More shedding Light, and less talk about repentance! But then i also realized, i don’t decide what to write about. I receive a few ideas and write them down, and later i can sit down and a few paragraphs and sentences and ideas form without me really thinking about it. For example, i never sit down and think, Hmmm , what will i write about today? If i don’t have anything to write, i don’t. When i do, i write it down. So i don’t decide what to write, and i also think it is fairly balanced. But i would like to spend more time sending positive messages and love to all. I feel by now, if people still aren’t getting the message to repent, and stop sinning, maybe they should read some more positive writings for awhile, and maybe that will help them to believe. Because if i truly want to be a “witness” for Jesus, my behaviour and my example are my best witness. Practicing what i preach.

So i thought i would pray and ask God for better balance in my writing, but then i realized, it is already balanced. So how can i increase my positive writing? I thought if i ask God to increase my Love, then i could possibly get an increase in Understanding, and Strength, and Peace as well, in order to stay in balance.

Earlier i wrote about how God has different helpers, servants. Here is Scripture about one such servant

Matthew Chapter 24

44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the
Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made
ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find
so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his
goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth
his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink
with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not
for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the
hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Now when i first started studying the Bible, i thought this Scripture might actually have been about me! Because i am trying to be a faithful servant to God. But now, i realize that God has many servants, as we noted earlier. And this verse talks about some servants of God who God had appointed to help Him, but when the time came, these servants were out getting drunk and eating with the drunkards! Probably eating meat! They were servants of God who never showed up for Work! I don’t think that there is just one of them. I think there may be quite a few servants who thought God waited too long to show up, and they lost their faith and they lost their place in Heaven, and had to go to the hypocrites instead. So while there is still time, i encourage all God’s servants to get busy helping God. Right now seems to be one of the most important times to help God, so we don’t want to waste our opportunity. We want to maximize our opportunity.

I also thought about how many people only seem to think about themselves. Some people don’t seem to care about other folks. They play their music so loud the neighbors hear it, they don’t care, because they don’t care about others, only themself. I realized, the reason these folks don’t care about others is because they don’t even think about others. That’s when i realized these people are incosiderate, and that’s where the meaning of that word comes from. Because they don’t “consider” other people, or animals. They only consider about themselves. I see myself in them, because i used to be that way too. But since i have become a Christian, i have learned a Better Way.
