Are you too busy for God/End before the Beginning

In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus said, you are looking for the end, have you found the beginning then?

Gospel of Thomas 18) The disciples said to Jesus, tell us how our end will be. Jesus said, Have you discovered, then, the beginning (That in the beginning the New Testament writers believed in Scriptures outside of the Canon), that you look for the end (Some better than that simple fact)? for where the beginning is (The basic fact of their usage and belief by the New Testament writers), there will the end be (The return to that original understanding). Blessed is he who will take his place in the beginning (Will stand with the New Testament writers); he will know the end (The return to that teaching) and will not experience (The) death (of this mystery).

What people are we really today? Are we like the people of Berea or Thessalonica (explained more below)? Most people are too busy for God. They would look at i.e. something I am given to write or something someone else posts or writes, that might be a page long and complain that they don’t have time to read it or it’s too long. (There are times I have struggled with this, but when I stopped to read it, I received a blessing or a needed Word from God. Our stubborn humanity hard at work!)

Let’s think about this. The church today seeks the ways of today, the standardization of today, the teachings of today, and not the true teachings and meanings of Jesus then. They don’t research and see what books the early church fathers (disciples of the disciples) and the disciples themselves read and wrote, what was given to them from The Holy Spirit herself to help the church of the future to know God. These people that wrote these books looked on the face of God, they saw Jesus face to face. The leaders of the church (the people follow) listen to those (scribes and Pharisees) that removed the books (keys and knowledge) of the Word from the people. They try to take things at face value and Jesus spoke in parables and God said that His word is a mystery. A mystery only revealed by the Holy Spirit, which is why there are winds of doctrines (different denominational beliefs). We are supposed to be ONE CHURCH not many.

How many Pastors do you know that give you not only a Biblical lesson, but a HIStory lesson to help you understand why Jesus said what He said, or the disciples wrote the words they wrote and how things where in those days. How can you understand anything in the middle or at the end, if you have no understanding of the beginning literally, the history? God has used ungodly men and women throughout history to lead His people back to Him, hard lessons they may have been, but He disciplines the ones He loves (Hebrews 12:6; Proverbs 3:12; Revelation 3:19; 1 Corinthians 11:32). Which means many of the books of those times, can give us a brighter view of those times. That along with the missing books and the accepted Canon will blow your mind. God’s Word truly is alive.

Acts 17: speaks of the people of Berea and how they were open minded and willing to listen to the message with great eagerness and studied to know that what Paul stated was true, unlike the people of Thessalonica.

The church of today is that of Thessalonica, they would push the disciples away just as they did Paul and Silas for speaking the truth, because it was against what they thought was true, they didn’t seek God, they wanted nothing to do with anything that opposed their truth. The carnal mind cannot accept the things of God.

Also, when Paul and Silas where speaking it says they held discussions with people, quoting and explaining the scripture. They didn’t talk over them, they talked with them. In the churches of today it’s just a lesson, take and do with it what you will kind of structure. Listen and do, there is not as much of an interest or motivation to seek. The church would be more motivated to seek if those preaching would allow them to interact. This would be true fellowship among believers. We should ping off of each other, a Pastor is not above the people, we are all the same; we just have different callings from God.

BE A BEREAN!
Receive the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether things are true.

 

THE REWARDS OF FAITH AND HOSPITALITY. Rahab.

Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol. I – Clement of Rome – Chapter XII.

On account of her faith and hospitality, Rahab the harlot was saved. For when spies were sent by Joshua, the son of Nun, to Jericho, the king of the country ascertained that they were come to spy out their land, and sent men to seize them, in order that, when taken, they might be put to death. But the hospitable Rahab receiving them, concealed them on the roof of her house under some stalks of flax. And when the men sent by the king arrived and said “There came men unto thee who are to spy out our land; bring them forth, for so the king commands,” she answered them, “The two men whom ye seek came unto me, but quickly departed again and are gone,” thus not discovering the spies to them. Then she said to the men, “I know assuredly that the Lord your God hath given you this city, for the fear and dread of you have fallen on its inhabitants. When therefore ye shall have taken it, keep ye me and the house of my father in safety.” And they said to her, “It shall be as thou hast spoken to us. As soon, therefore, as thou knowest that we are at hand, thou shall gather all thy family under thy roof, and they shall be preserved, but all that are found outside of thy dwelling shall perish.” Moreover, they gave her a sign to this effect, that she should hang forth from her house a scarlet thread. And thus they made it manifest that redemption should flow through the blood of the Lord to all them that believe and hope in God. Ye see, beloved, that there was not only faith, but prophecy, in this woman.

Humanity sees Rahab as a harlot, but God saw her as a faithful child and part of His people. Seems the labels we put on others are but mere words, but the title we are given by God are beyond what some would consider mistakes or condemnation and is only from earthly carnal minded people. As we are not to judge others, lest we be judge in the same manner (Matthew 7:1-3), yet we label Rahab as a harlot.

Faith and hospitality are big things to God. As it is said, Faith can move mountains. Hospitality, though it usually doesn’t take much to be hospitable to another, as there are so many ways to do so, means a lot to God. He wants us to help each other along through this life and showing kindness is not hard, but so many people are so selfish they refuse to show others any kindness and feel they are better suited to give them a moral word or acknowledge their faults when they, themselves should be showing love and focused on being more like Christ. If you are more interested in finding fault in other and causing division amongst people, especially the body of Christ, you need to check your faith, and find your knees. True children, the true body of Christ do not cause division in the body.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, be kind to others, we are all walking through this life, we are all struggling at times, and we are all growing. A reflection of your heart and who you truly are inside comes out by how you are towards others. Remember to be hospitable and grow in your Faith and Relationship with Jesus each day.

God’s Mercy for All…Is Hell Really Hell?

The more I read of the early church fathers, the Bible, Jasher, and Enoch, the more I find God’s love abounding in so many ways. The more I can’t help but know that the Bible has been translated in so many places with the wrong terms, very likely intentionally, as we are warned the tares are among the wheat and because of this, the devil has had his hand in the Bible over time. Be it from the removal of books, or the translation into different languages with a change in words. There is far too much proof and people refuse to look into it, they just want to believe what they are told.

I might step on some toes with what I’m about to say, but I am not here to sugarcoat anything or make people like me, I am here to seek my Father and Creator, and to do what is right according to Him. According to Him the more I speak truth the more people will come against me. I should rejoice when I am persecuted by others, even those who would call themselves Christians. To those people who refuse to seek after the truth and just listen to what others tell them how can you cast words at me stating I’m wrong, when you don’t even go look for yourself.

“Let us look stedfastly to the blood of Christ, and see how precious that blood is to God, which, having been shed for our salvation, has set the grace of repentance before the whole world.” ~Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol I – Clement of Rome Chapter VII

James 2:13 For judgment without mercy to him that hath not done mercy. And mercy exalteth itself above judgment.

So much of what I have read and what God has given me the ability to understand, because it is Him completely through the Holy Spirit that give us the ability to understand or even love or seek Him. We do not have the capacity to do these things on our own.

It all says that Jesus came for the whole world, that is, THE WHOLE world as in all human beings that God has created. The only time I can see where God sends any truly into the pits with the devil is in the end when they accept the mark of the beast. My belief in this is, because what the fallen angels do to them through the mark of the beast and their return to try and rule this world, is that they change the DNA of the ones who would follow the Antichrist.

Even David, who was called a man after God’s own heart committed so many wrongs. He was an adulterer and a murder; you can see that in the story of Bathsheba. God’s MERCY.  So no one can tell me that they can sit and condemn another and call themselves a child of God, because those in the Body of Christ, true children of God do not cause division in the body, PERIOD!

All others are put through what God refers to as a refiners fire, He puts them in a place that purges them and makes them better and more suited for the Kingdom and from there He will bring all and I mean all of His chosen creation (human beings) to Himself. I’m not saying this place has no pain involved; it very well may, as God would show them how it would be without Him that they would call out to Him and return to their Father. The Bible even states that Jesus descended and preached to the souls in the pit. I am still studying through this, but I don’t believe there is a literal hell as translated in the English language. There are three parts to what the English Bible calls hell, three different places not one. The lake of fire, the pit, and paradise, the Bible also mentions the abyss, but I am thinking that is the same as the lake of fire, again I am still looking further into this.

This would be the reason why people preaching hell draws more people away from God. If you are going to speak of my Father you speak of His love for the world, because that is exactly what He is all about. His precious Grace, Love, and Mercy that He has show all of humanity. The only ones that have not been shown this are the peoples that were nephilim (fallen angel human hybrids) because they are not of God and it is told in the Bible those cities and those people God showed no mercy upon them. The Amorites and Sodom and Gomorrah are two examples of this where God showed no mercy.  Other than this God’s Mercy, Grace, and Love are for all humans.  The Bible even states that hell was not made for people, but for the devil and his angels.

 

Abusers of themselves with mankind

In the KJV it says “abusers of themselves with mankind”. So many people try to throw this out as meaning homosexuality, please research your sources before you go proclaiming translations as something they are not. This is one of the only translations that actually gets it remotely correct on 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. The ancient Greek term is hard to find in Greek literature, but when it has been used it is used as a class struggle, where a person in a HIGHER POSITION abuses someone in a LOWER position. Also, the term has another more known meaning in shrine prostitution. Where a male would castrate themselves and be on the receiving end of sex unto a false god, such as Molech (which I have mentioned before).

Philo, The Special Laws, III, VII, 40-41: “(40) And I imagine that the cause of this is that among many nations there are actually rewards given for intemperance and effeminacy. At all events one may see men-women (androgynes) continually strutting through the market place at midday, and leading the processions in festivals; and, impious men as they are, having received by lot the charge of the temple, and beginning the sacred and initiating rites, and concerned even in the holy mysteries of Ceres(Cybele)”

This indicates they were in charge of the Temple unto Cybele. This was part of the term (which cannot be separated). Reguarding the first definition(abuse of someone lower than you), which is stated above, only a few ancient Greek texts use it in such a way (Sibylline Oracle 2.70-77.10 – one of the more ancient texts that uses the term).

http://www.clgs.org/arsenokoit%C3%A9s…

Section “On Justice” from Sibylline Oracle 2: “(Never accept in your hand a gift which derives from unjust deeds.) Do not steal seeds. Whoever takes for himself is accursed (to generations of generations, to the scattering of life. Do not arsenokoitein, do not betray information, do not murder.) Give one who has labored his wage. Do not oppress a poor man. Take heed of your speech. Keep a secret matter in your heart. (Make provision for orphans and widows and those in need.) Do not be willing to act unjustly, and therefore do not give leave to one who is acting unjustly.”

This would qualify “slave owners” from the 19th Century, due to how they abused slaves. “Abusers of themselves with mankind” WERE slave owners!!!

NOW DAYS, we are expected to believe and many do, that it is referring to homosexuals. (=ignorance/hate/lies/false doctrine) This is dishonest and causing so much hate in our country alone, not to mention the other countries. Just how the devil wants it, people have allowed it to be.

The only definition that is related to “homosexuality” is one that also includes “false god worship” as part of the definition. First, NO homosexuals castrate themselves. Second, they are not worshipping false gods such as Cybele or Molach while having sex! Lord knows I don’t!

The sin was idolatry, mixed with sex acts. This is what has been lost in its meaning. So “slave owners” and those who rape and abuse others are ALSO being discussed when this term is used. I am guessing Paul was referring to both meanings when he spoke of this, but he by no means was talking about homosexuals.

What’s Wrong with Christianity?

What exactly is a Christian now days? There are so many different denominations and theological ideals out there. I wonder what to call myself so that it’s not misleading to others. The closest I guess I could come is that I am a Child of the One and Only Living God who’s Son is Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 4 that “1The Spirit says clearly that some people will abandon the faith in later times; they will obey lying spirits and follow the teachings of demons. 2Such teachings are spread by deceitful liars, whose consciences are dead, as if burnt with a hot iron. 3Such people teach that it is wrong to marry and to eat certain foods. But God created those foods to be eaten, after a prayer of thanks, by those who are believers and have come to know the truth. 4Everything that God has created is good; nothing is to be rejected, but everything is to be received with a prayer of thanks, 5because the word of God and the prayer make it acceptable to God.”

Where it says in verse one “teachings of demons,” in some versions it says doctrines. There are many teachings that are labeled Christianity that are completely not of God and are used to deceive His people.

If someone says God hates, in all but one thing, they would be a liar. That one thing is religion; God hates religion, because it seeks to deceive His people. In the Bible when Jesus was on the earth, the one time He got severely angry was at the Pharisees, the religious leaders. Religions are a merchant’s game on people. There are so many false teachers of Christianity that seek only the funds of others to live a wealthy life for themselves, to deceive the children of God, and to rob them of the Truth and Love of God. Anyone who would call themselves a Pastor should not be living in over abundance of wealth, Jesus did not and we are to be as Him.

Technically, there should be no organized religions per say. There should be a meeting of God’s people, God’s church (singular), the Body of Christ. No denominations, no division, or religious order of any kind. It simply should be the Body of Christ coming together to pray, to help each other, to talk about the Lord, and to love one another.

I think the closest I have come to this has been either just a meeting with friend or family were we talked about God, or in the church I attended back home in the Sunday school class. I had an awesome teacher in there and he helped me to grow in ways that I’m sure he may be unaware of, but God put him and his wife in my life at such an incredibly hard time. The perfect time.

That class didn’t always stick to the chosen topic for that day, sometimes we would talk about what God had shown someone that week before and at times we would get off on different needs of those in class. It wasn’t really a class; it was just a coming together of God’s church, the Body of Christ. We talked; we prayed for each other, we carried each other’s burdens so no one had to carry them alone. We genuinely cared for one another, that is how the church should be.

No man made laws or rules, no religion, just a relationship with your Creator and King, just the Body of Christ, just focused on God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

The Body of Christ and the Holy Spirit

There is one body of Christ, there are not many churches, there is only one that is the body of Christ.  Christ came as God and man to die in our place to cover our sin (singular) the sin we are born with and to give us the Holy Spirit released to connect with our spirit as our souls are broken before the Father, Holy Spirit, and the Son. She (the Holy Spirit) is wisdom, comfort, and guidance, she is the Spirit that is Holy of Yahweh.

Churches is a religious term, church/body of Christ is a Heavenly term.

So many sermons are shown from a pulpit that are not (Holy) Spirit connected. At those moments even milk is not given to the people. God’s people even still need more than milk alone, many sit stagnant in a “church” receiving hollow words or milk. God’s people need meat, God’s people need to know that authority they have been given over the powers of this world.

Until they are given the full truth being that the fall of man coincides with the fall of Satan. That there is more to this than we are taught in a church building. God’s Holly Spirit is on the rise to reveal the truth and the lies the devil has ground into the world. The tares are among the wheat, we must seek the truth which only the Holy Spirit can provided you as you seek after God.

Behold, God calls you today to trust in the Spirit and cast away the lies fed to you by this world. You will not understand the end if you do not understand the beginning, which in turn makes everything in between a field of confusion and false truths.

It’s A Matter of The Holy Spirit

It is not a matter of doctrines or theological opinions that will lead you to the knowledge of Yeshua; it is The Holy Spirit only that will lead you to Yeshua. You can read the Bible and know it upside down and backwards, go to church three days a week, and still not know Yeshua. A reminder of this is that even the devil knows the Bible backwards and forwards and even the devil has crept into the church (the worldly church not the church that is the body of Yeshua). Many people have many differences of opinions on doctrine and their beliefs, but regardless of differences, those truly in the body of Yeshua will come together for the Kingdom of Yahweh no matter what and they are not divisive against one another. They will never cause division in the body, once they are of the body.

I know that the devil has spread lies and deceit across the world, even into many biblical translations of what was Yahweh’s perfect inerrant Word (this is why we look to the early church fathers and the older books like the Greek Septuagint), and entwined hate into many parts of what is thought to be Christianity. What is the end all be all is the connection of your spirit with Yahweh’s Holy Spirit. There are many who believe in Yahweh, Yeshua, and The Holy Spirit that do not have that connection, sadly their flesh (will and soulical self) are more for them and this world than for Yahweh. It is not easy to be a Christian, as our souls have to be broken down so that our spirits can be lifted up and connect with The Holy Spirit. This is why in the Bible it says we must die to self, carry our cross, if we save our soul we will lose it, and things of that nature. We have to put the order of things back as Yahweh meant for it to be before the sin of man, spirit, soul, and body.

So each Christian is not only facing a battle against the devil and his angels and demons, but also again their fleshly self. Each of us is not strong enough to face any of these battles alone, but only with Yahweh, Yeshua, and The Holy Spirit to help you break and build backup. We are given His Authority over the powers of this world and we do not even know how to use it, and there is a time coming that we will need to know how to use it. I pray for each of my brothers and sister in Yeshua, as well as myself, that Yahweh Aba would teach us this most important lesson before these times come over us. All in all, we know who the Victor is in the end. Amen!

Every Knee Will Bow and Every Tongue Will Confess, That Yeshua is Lord.
