A Special note here. It is increasingly hard to open and close this site, takes forever, so I will be finishing this up on a Forum I made. CLICK HERE to go there.
I'm fifty years old and past that now. Never in all of my days have I seen so much hate and fear. So much destructions and lies. So much pain and suffering. From here though it only gets worse if we continue down the path we are on, and I see no letting up as we follow blind guides. Something has to change and it will change, thing is, do we want what we are asking for. So you have to ask yourself, in the quiet of your soul, are you really ready. Nobody can ask that for you and you can't ask anybody else, you have to ask yourself and be true in your answer. You will not be judged against me nor I you, but the measure shall be God's laws. It's funny, there are only ten original ones and then Jesus added a couple, so it is a far cry from man's laws that are volumes. The system in place now not only in our country but every nation on earth has become corrupt and indeed ran by the same group which knowing or unknowingly serve the same one who would be a god, note the small "g".
I don't think in so much as the Bible has been altered in print as it is altered in verbal interpretation and used in parts, and therein lies where evil people use the Bible for justification of some of the most horrific deeds and deceits known to mankind. While I am far from a Bible expert and not just in my every action, I fear God enough not to twist His words nor hide behind the words to do things that are clearly wrong according to Jesus's words. I don't quote from the Muslim or Jewish books simply because I don't know them and whatever time I have left in this body I will use that time learning about my own beliefs. I may touch on them from time to time but I do good to learn what the Bible says. This isn't a book of the month club where one hastily reads through it and says they have a true understanding of all that one just read. Truly one can read this book a hundred times a hundred and still find things one missed or had wrong, road blocks have been set up in these bodies that restrain us from knowing the truth that we, with help, must overcome.
I will, from here on in, be quoting from scriptures, but bear in mind that these are only sound bites. Please note that I will not be giving all the scriptures that relate to what I write. Please research and read it for yourself. I have prayed and asked for God's help in writing this but in no way should one assume that God did, He speaks for Himself. Still, I feel the need to write this. Why? I have no idea, but I have to.
There are those who, either intentionally or unintentionally, steer the people wrong in their speeches and sermons. Then again we are foretold about this many years ago. I listened just recently to a man who favors himself as a "watchman". I'll not call names on this but I will call out whenever one wishes to attribute himself a title, especially when just the opposite he speaks is a lie. Then again, many truths can be learned while listening to some of these people. No really well planned deception is ever accomplished with a pure lie. All have truth mixed in with them. I'll touch in and out of the New Age deception since they hide behind Christianity in many cases.
2 Peter 2:1
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privacy shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
1 John 4:1
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
I've listened to some pretty good and some pretty bad over the years and it seems like these days there are many prophets that arise from nowhere and people in their desperation follow them blindly. The dogma part of religion can also be taken way too far in any religion. These days though, the focus seems to be on three religions, Christianity, Judaism, and Muslim. When one looks at the United Nations (UN) they will find that according to them these three religions must go in order to have world peace. All three religions are giving them ammunition to back their claims up. Just look at what we have done to each other, not all, but the extremists in each group that get the attention. What they fail to do when pointing out all the blood shed by extremists of the three is to point out what their beliefs have brought about throughout time. It is guaranteed to send cold chills down you spine. One of the last of the bigger events was Hitler, who was Luciferian. Looking at Biblical accounts combined with other recorded accounts we see the savagery of Pagan beliefs. Most do not know that it was Christians that were tortured during the witch hunts and not Pagans.
These days many are kept in check by language. Indeed I write this as simple as I can so all can enjoy. How bad has it got? The NIV Bible is written on a sixth grade level. We have been deliberately dumbed down as a people, world wide. Have you even read the diary or old time blogs, before the web, from a hundred years ago? If you haven't then you will be shocked at what a vocabulary they had. Other words have slowly been omitted and even changed, like where concerned is involved. We no longer say we are worried for someone but rather concerned for them, which is devout of emotions. But I digress and so we will go back to where we left off.
I got an email the other day that said basically what I saw on a supposedly Christian forum which asked the question about pay for help, i.e.: workers. One email asked if Jesus was a Socialist, again, from a suppose to be Christian news agency. Now maybe they were just trying to draw more business and maybe they weren't, in all honesty I didn't read it. Stick around though for I will have up scriptures to back up what I say after this paragraph. Jesus was not interested in politics, I hate to drop that bomb, but that is true. He did however take and interest in a worker's compensation... pay. I think that those who talk trash like this should label themselves anything but Christian personally. We will get to that later though. So where does it speak about pay and society in the Bible? Below is but a quick, small sampling.
Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by wrong; that useth his neighbor's service without wages, and giveth him not for his work;
16Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge, neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment,
17That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed my judgments, hath walked in my statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live.
18As for his father, because he cruelly oppressed, spoiled his brother by violence, and did that which is not good among his people, lo, even he shall die in his iniquity.
And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.
1 Timothy 6:10
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.
But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.
12Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbors; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompense be made thee.
13But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
14And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.
Getting water sprinkled or dunked and saying that Jesus is your Savior only works when the Holy Spirit comes into you and the action itself is not what saves one from Hell. The Holy Ghost must come upon you. Our actions do count as well as our deeds. I know there are many that say just believe, but even Satan and his devils believe that Jesus is the Savior. If one is buying into the just get dunked and be saved, then they have bought into a false sense of security. Actually almost a cult. I do believe that one must be saved and baptized which are symbolic and preparations for the Holy Ghost to reside in one. It must be made public as we are told that if we cannot or will not acknowledge Him before our fellow peers, Jesus will not acknowledge us before His Father. By being a Christian we are to control our deeds, or at least try too. When one is really born again then one will watch their actions. Through Grace by faith are we redeemed. Below is just a few sound bites as to where I believe that from. There is one mnor thing though about Baptism. It appears that the thief on the cross beside Jesus was able to go without being Baptised.
According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.
For many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of them also: and I will recompense them according to their deeds, and according to the works of their own hands.
19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
5But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
6Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
7To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life:
To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
As for being saved and baptized, one must do this action in public, but that is the first step. The next step is when the Holy Ghost comes inside. For some it is immediate while for others it may take years. Still, it is the first step of faith and acceptance of Jesus Christ as being one's Savior. It is symbolic of washing away one's sins, yet only God can do that. To put it simply, it is cleaning inside, public acceptance, and a way of saying here I am. By doing this though you are to make changes in your life, ones that will seem hard to do from the outside yet they are not. To the outsider it will appear that one must make sacrifices. To the insider one finds out that it isn't a sacrifice because all things are made new. This doesn't mean you will not trip or fall but rather when you do there is someone to catch you. You will not be perfect but at the same time you shouldn't be making the same mistakes over and over again. In other words, you know where your weakness is and where Satan will attack.
John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
There is a group, actually a few groups that rail over the Sabbath. While it is important to know that the Sabbath is correctly identified as Saturday and how Sunday got it's place as worship, I think actually everyday should be a day of thanks and worship. God knows what is in a man's heart and what is not.
And he said unto them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath:
We seem, as several countries do, to make war constantly... we're just good at it. The one thing though is that when on top of the heap, it's always a long way down and there is always going to be someone bigger and badder. Thing is, just how do we represent ourselves to the world? What separates us from the rest? How does God view it? Now some will give reference to Antediluvian times where God commanded that whole peoples and animals be killed, yet for now, this is not the case. They were at war with another species which was a ruthless race. Now if this sounds like a weird sci-fi movie then research this material if it interests you. Now for those who asked where the Dinosaurs were in the Bible, or why they wern't mentioned, it is because they were not created by God.
Many people around the world speak of six finger, 6 toe, giants- many with double rows of teeth that were cannibals. What is interesting is how, and I'm assuming it was purposely done to keep people from knowing the truth, is why American Indians held up on hand to each other when meeting. In TV movies they always say "How", but in real life it was to show the other person that they were indeed human. So why the hand? The feet was usually covered in grass. Basically they were counting digits (fingers) on the hand. Pretty much every country and religion features giants and cannibalism. This is where I've been starting to research lately as I wanted to know just where evil started. I know Lucifer was the start but the Watchers were also a big part in it and where the giants and cannibals started. I am one of those people who needs to know why David picked up five stones when he fought Goliath if he had so much faith. Right there it is in black and white, yet most preachers will never tell you and most of us read through it so fast we miss the answer.
We think that we are advanced for a world, but we're not. We are catching up though, and that ain't a good thing. If you go back to the Antediluvian times (pre flood) one will see we have quite a ways to go, yet we're almost there. I read or watched a talk on this not too long ago and one thing made sense. Before, when the tower of Babel was built, people spoke the same language or at least could understand each other. For the first time in thousands of years it can be and is done again using computers. Once again though I'm off topic. So here is a few passages.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
32And they brought up an evil
report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying,
The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the
inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great
33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
10The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims;
11Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites called them Emims.
12The Horims also dwelt in Seir beforetime; but the children of Esau succeeded them, when they had destroyed them from before them, and dwelt in their stead; as Israel did unto the land of his possession, which the LORD gave unto them.
19And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it unto the children of Lot for a possession.
20(That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;
21A people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; but the LORD destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead:
For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.
And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.
And the coast of Og king of Bashan, which was of the remnant of the giants, that dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,
All the kingdom of Og in Bashan, which reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei, who remained of the remnant of the giants: for these did Moses smite, and cast them out.
And the border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom unto the south side of the Jebusite; the same is Jerusalem: and the border went up to the top of the mountain that lieth before the valley of Hinnom westward, which is at the end of the valley of the giants northward:
And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee.
Now with that in mind, add this:
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
In these days we have become a warrior nation, placing 90% of our scientists researching how to kill and mame and less than 10% for disease and advancements. We blindly follow and turn a blind eye to horrific atrocities, much like the German people done with Hitler's time. Special note here. The name Nazi wasn't a new term nor was it just a name they chose from random. The word Nazi is actually the name of a Sumerian god. Hate, fear, pride all seem to consume the world but we here in the states seem to have perfected it. But what does the Bible say about nations and men that are like that?
1 Peter 3:9
Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
1 Thessalonians 5:15
See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
1 John 2:16
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
1From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
2Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
3Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
1 John 2:11
But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
So, what did Jesus think about politics? First off back then they weren't called poloticians, they were called Pharisees. Scribes were those who kept records and reprinted books, public servants. I seriously doubt that He would be for any party. A small sampling of what He thought.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
Now to quickly address if Jesus was a Socialist or not, which I thought was a dumb question if real. A cheesy way to have one's publication read if they weren't being real. Either way, you decide for yourself.
16Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
17But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
18My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
