Which Law?

Why is it that many people who say they are Christians obey the law of the land but completely disregard the laws  of God?

National holidays can only be observed on the days instituted by the government but memorials regarding Christ are not observed on their actual date of occurrences.

For example….Christ was crucified, died, buried and resurrected three days after His death,¬† yet today’s christianity continues to observe this process over a one and a half day period.

Some may say that it is not a big deal but it would be a big deal if you chose to disregard designated public holidays and openly celebrate them on days other than the ones instituted by the government. You would probably be arrested and charged for establishing and perpetuating a lie against the government.

If we can be penalized for disregarding national holidays, how much more do you think we will be penalized for disregarding the truth of God’s Word and furthermore, for perpetuating the lies we were taught to each new generation that comes after us?

WE ARE ALL A WORK IN PROGRESS AND OUR CHANGES WILL MANIFEST AT DIFFERENT TIMES ….. IF WE ACTUALLY WORK TOWARDS THEM.

IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY DONE SO, MAKE THE CHANGE TO FOLLOW BIBICAL TRUTHS TODAY.

Religious Organizations

The religious organizations operating in the name of God appear to be asleep. The world is nearing its climactic end, with everything stated in Matthew 24 as the beginning of sorrows that will lead to the end of this world being fulfilled, yet these organizations are preaching earthly financial prosperity with no focus on eternal destinations.

The amazing power of God has been reduced to sowing and reaping financial seed, with little to no focus on sowing the word of God into the lives of others and winning souls for the kingdom of God.

So much glory is placed upon the leaders of these organizationts that if God were to really show up in their services one day, HE WOULD NOT BE RECOGNIZED.

If you find yourself in one of these organizations, get into serious study of THE WORD; discover its truths and share it with them….MAYBE GOD HAS YOU THERE FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS TO DELIVER THEM.

When your season there is over, God will move you to another organization where you will further share your knowledge of Him and train others to do the same.

Segregation in the Body of Christ

Denominations have caused segregation in the body of Christ and a decline in the united promotion of the message, works and power of God.

The twelve apostles were on one accord with the teachings of Christ and their united message transformed the then known world…without the aid of modern technology which we now enjoy.

Today, with modern technology, there is more chaos in Christianity than there is unity, as many are going forth declaring messageS as they are led by a spirit…but not necessarily by the Spirt of God.

Committing vs Practising

There is a big difference between committing a sinful act and practising a sinful lifestyle.

Lying, stealing, murder fornication or adultery in a moment of weakness, is a sinful act. Practising these acts on a regular basis is practising a sinful lifestyle.

If a sinful lifestyle is being practised, it creates a barrier between the persons practising it and their relationship with God. Sometimes these persons are unaware of the barrier because things go smootly for a while. It is when their world begins to fall apart that they begin to cry out to God for deliverance from their struggles but not forgiveness for and deliverance from the ungodly lifestyle they are practising.

The Apostle Paul wrote many letters to the Christians who accepted the messages of Christ but were not practising the teachings of Christ. In these letters, he explained that it was their responsibility to stop practising the ungodly lifestyles that they lived before they accepted Christ into their lives and now to begin practising the lifestyle presented by Christ.

In other words, our first step in changing our lives is acknowledging and accepting Christ as our Saviour and Lord. The next step is our life long journey of the shedding process and the transformation of our lives from who we were before accepting Christ into our our lives, to developing the lifestyle and standards of Christ, as outlined in the Bible.

This is how you do it.

Do all you can to present yourself to God as someone worthy of his approval, as a worker with no need to be ashamed, because he deals straightforwardly with the Word of the Truth…

Beware of Itching Ears Syndrome

2 Timothy 4:2-4King James Version (KJV)

2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

The Struggle In The Cocoon

As a caterpillar goes through its personal struggles within the cocoon to complete the process of emerging as a fully matured butterfly, able to spread its wings and fly, so do many human beings struggle in the cocoon of their minds to break free from the mental imprisonment imposed upon them by the societies they find themselves a part of and in which they had no option of choice.

As the struggle of the caterpillar is personal within the cocoon and the effects only visible without, so is the struggle of individuals personal within their minds with the effects of the struggle being visible by all.

The drug addict, sex addict, physical abuser, mental abuser, people pleaser, lover of power and money lover, represents some of the visible results of the mental struggles within many. These outward actions are used by others – with both similar and different struggles- to verbally destroy those facing these challenges.

For the fortunate few who are able to survive the torture from without as they struggle within – they emerge as beautiful butterflies, soaring to the highest heights of life until their season with their wings on earth is over.

Unfortunately, those who are unable to survive the torture from without as they struggle within, die in their cocoon, never experiencing the joy of earning their wings and living their lives in uninhibited freedom, like the butterfly.

Fable or Doctrine?

DO NOT GET CAUGHT UP IN SOME OF THE FABLES THAT ARE BEING SPREAD IN THE NAME OF GOD.

IF YOU DON’T KNOW ‘THE WORD’ YOU WILL BE FOOLED BY A FALSE WORD.

2 Timothy 4:2-4King James Version (KJV)

2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Ministry Unto God

Ministry unto God is so simple. We all have a part of the field to work in…our homes, our jobs, our friends and aquaintainces and sometimes strangers God places in our paths. These are personal, one on one ministry experiences, the positive effects of which we may never know on earth, but for which we will be rewarded in this world and in the world to come.

You or your name may not be recognized by anyone but God sees and knows of your labour for Him and He will openly reward you for your work.
