Salvation is God’s Job 

  

Does the Scriptures not teach us, “Be not unequally yoke with the unbeliever”? The job of the Christian is not calling people to repentance this is Christ’s job, do you disagree? Did you hang on a cross? Did you take on your back the sins of the world? Jesus made clear, “no man cometh to me except the Father call him first”, we cannot save people or cause conviction to come upon their hearts! 

Yes, I have felt abandoned and lonely and exiled by churches, but I have also found that this was a lesson that God the father was teaching me. That we  are to strive to be close to Him, not the people of the church or the community. You are correct Matt in explaining to those who argue the excuse against God wanting them to be alone, that being single does not mean being alone. Often times we find that it’s not the singleness, or the not having the relationship that matters, it’s not having sex that is the tipping point! As many people that wish can respond with every rant, rhetoric, philippic, trade, bluster, and clamor that will satisfy their emotional outrage, but it will still be a fact! Christ was clear that our mission is to spread the gospel and to reflect in our lives the life that He led. If a single person, since that’s the subject where on, determines in themselves to involve themselves and their lifes with gaining a closeness to God, being led by Christ Jesus and being close to Him there will not be as much loneliness.

 Yes, there will be times of loneliness, but not as many. One thing we must also steer clear away from is not try to see God romantically, as many of Christian music today does. One person said that they could sing the song to their lover! God is not to be a romantic interest for any person we must learn that we are His servants His children. The church is and has been getting more and more like the world, but know that the Body of Christ is still the same as it was from the beginning and will remain so until we become the bride of Christ. 

These are perilous times that surround us and it’s going to take the FULL ARMOR OF CHRIST, to make it. Jesus said, “If those days where not shortened, the very elect would be deceived.”

The Cost Required Today To Preaching the Gospel!

 A few weeks  ago I listened  as  a discussion took place about how much a Pastor at a Church was being Paid and quite frankly I was appalled! The church has a nice Parsonage however this man wanted house of his Own So the church makes the house payments. I’ve heard of other churches where the preacher drives a 50 thousand $ truck And his wife a 40 thousand dollar Car that the church Carries the wieght of the cost. Not to mention Paying their phone bill the electric bill then his Salary of around 14 thousand Per week Or month.  I tuned out for awhile !   This goes against everything that Christ and the Apostles taught about the discipline Of the workings of the church !  In 1 Corinthians chapter 9 Paul explains  that yes a Preacher has the right to forbear working so  that he might apply his time to the study of the Word. Then in Verse 15 Paul Says something that many Preachers today would leave the churches if all put this into practice . He Says ” But I  have  used none of these Things:  neither have I written these things that it should be done unto. me: for it were better for me to die than that any man should make my glorying Void. For though I preach the gospel  I have nothing to glory of:  for necessity is laid upon me;  yea  woe is unto me .if I preach not the gospel !  Verse 17, for if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. 18 What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.”  Decern for yourself if the Preachers of today “make the gospel of Christ without charge and if the power given in the gospel they are guilty of abusing.”  

What is important for us to understand is that the Preacher is a servant to the people of his church and not the other way around. This that we have talked about is one of the major reasons why the Churches have no power, because the Preacher is lax in his prayer life and sloppy in his study of the Scriptures. When I was little I can remember being in church and the presence of the Holy Ghost would be so great that the church would have a haze that moved around in the church. In one church back when they had the wood burning heaters, one of my Aunts was caught up in the Holy Ghost and fell on the heater, that was glowing red from the heat. She didn’t jump off of it but continued to shout in the Spirit, and after awhile the Spirit moved her and she had no burns, not even her dress had a burnt place or black smuggling from the heater. 

    Nowadays people go to church and there is no moving of the Spirit but that is of little consequence to most people. They figure that they have earned their credit for showing up. Also many people look at the board to see how much money the Church has saved up, never giving a thought about a church that is truly doing the will of God will be broke 99% of the time. TV preachers I have no confidence in them as Holy men or women of God, if we know the Word then we can see how foolish and of the devil their messages are, examples: I’ve heard them say that they spoke to a female angel ( there are no female Angels) , I’ve heard them talk about feathers falling down ( angels don’t have feathers) , I’ve heard one say that god told him that he could have done the same thing that Jesus did and accomplished the same outcome, all who have ever heard one of these people talk knows that they tell us how god will prosper us with money, new cars, new homes, etc. Listen to what the Spirit says, in. 2 Timothy 4:3&4, ” 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; And they shall turn away their ears from the Truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 

    I ask you to join me in prayer for the lost in our families, that God will open our eyes and ears that we be not deceived, and ask the Almighty to bless us with the gifts of knowledge and wisdom of His Word . Also the Bible instructs us to pray for the gift of Prophecy that through us He builds up the true church ( the Body of Christ) . Amen

Confusion and God never mix!

    There is a passage of Scripture that I’ve read many times, “Keep yourselves unspotted from the world.” When I would study over this and think how I’ve heard it explained by others, what I got was it means not to do anything that the world could and would point to me saying, “Well he is doing such and such! He claims to be a Christian but we see so he must be a hypocrite!” 

     God explained the passage to me saying something along the lines of: “Bryan, anything that you do the world will find fault. This message is simple, keep yourself unspotted from the world means, that when I washed you in the Blood of Christ you became white. If you do something that I have given instruction against, then your white robe has a spot on it because your action was of the world. I tell you to keep yourself from sin, that will keep your unstained Blood-bought white soul unblemished.
      Then I understood, and now when I hear anyone quoting that verse and giving the old definition, I can smile thanking Almighty God for understanding my frustration and telling me from His own Holy Spirit, the true meaning. BTW I will only read the KJV ( yes, the version that so many people are fooled by satan into thinking that the words are to hard and that words like Ye, Hath, Thee ,Telleth, etc. .   That’s just speak! God explaining a passage to a regular guy like me, shows us that God will give understanding at the time His will deems it necessary and will further our knowledge. However, we must remember that God’s timing is not the same as ours, so never make the mistake of trying to rush Him or believing to fit your own wants and desires. “For the works of man worketh not the righteous of God.”  

                               Trust In The Power And Love That God Has For You!

All in the same boat w/out Total Obedience to CHRIST 

  I don’t think that the situation that we are talking about is one that is rare by any means. There are many men and women who have been married for years and then decide to follow their lust and leave God. And whether people agree are not that’s what it is following their own lust which we are all guilty of from time to time. Understand I am not what most people are used to in today’s world when they label someone a Christian.The church world has honed in on homosexuality as the new soapbox! Why would they do this? The reason is because most of what used to be preached homosexuality, adultery, fornication, lying, theft, murder gossip the way people dress,  what they listen to, and a multitude of other sins the Bible is explicit in naming, have been absorbed into the church and to make them still feels saved and clean the one thing that the hypocrites can rely own is homosexuality still being viewed by most as sin!
     The Bible speaks of these times in the following passage:
      “And into the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write these things saith           
       the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;  
      I know thy works, that thou art neither hot nor cold: I would that thou wert 
      hot or cold. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I 
      will spew the out of my mouth. 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:” (Revelation 3:14-17)    
    There are so many other sins just as unholy as homosexuality but no one wants to talk about those anymore, for example Adultery.
There are many people in the church world today that are breaking these commandments, but will be quick to let you know that you have misinterpreted the scripture! Many other things could be pointed out about the place that we go to hear the word of God preached by people who are breaking a lot of the Commandments! I personally had a best friend who was sleeping with the preacher at her church, and him a married man. However, even if he had divorced his wife he could not have married my friend as we just heard and read in the scripture. Many people will come up with other excuses such as their partner was violent, they cheated on them, they cursed them,or they just couldn’t live together anymore, etc! Too that I say fine! I wouldn’t want anyone to suffer violence, humiliation, and so on, in fact I would encourage them to leave that situation!! However, if you plan to continue to serve God then you must remain single unless you return to your husband or wife, your first husband or wife! The word of God makes that very clear and when I hear people who are living in an adulterous marriage condemning homosexuality I want to say to them, “and why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brothers eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?  Or how wilt thou say to that brother, let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 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.” (Matthew 7:3,4,5) These are not my judgments! I did not come up with them on my own and, if you will read your KJV Bible the verses in the chapter that I quoted to you, you will see that Christ himself said these things.
     My point in all of this is that a relationship with Christ calls for self-sacrifice; we cannot seek our own wants and desires; we must deny self,  pick up our crosses and follow Him.  Remember the Scripture says, “know Ye not the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.  (James 4:4)
Now adultery is a topic that is undoubtably going to stir up a lot of anger, but the truth of the scripture is undeniable it applies to every part of a persons life and every word in it is to be taken literally.
So what does the Bible say about adultery? Let’s limit our search to the New Testament starting with Matthew 5:27 “Ye have heard that it was said by them of all time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28- but I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Now let’s go to Matthew 5:32- “but I say unto you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, save for the calls of fornication, cost of her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.” Matthew 19:9 “and I say unto you, whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery”. First Corinthians 7:11, “But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband let not the husband put away his wife.” First Corinthians 7:10 “And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, let not the wife depart from her husband:” Romans 7:3 “So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulterous: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law so that she is no adulterous though she be married to another man.” Mark 10:12 “And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committed adultery.” (I want to be very clear here!  Just because the pronoun “she” is used that does not mean that what Jesus was talking about doesn’t also apply to men.)
There are many people in the church world today that are breaking these commandments, but will be quick to let you know that you have misinterpreted the scripture! Many other things could be pointed out about the place that we go to hear the word of God preached by people who are breaking a lot of the Commandments! I personally had a best friend who was sleeping with the preacher at her church, and him a married man.

Talk to me Lord!

While reading Matt Moore’s blog the Holy Ghost whispered to me something that I never thought about. He whispered, “Jesus did not hunt (for sport) like people today. Christ was called names and despised because He was different, but the Lord was not come to impress nor give in to social norms for the sake of being liked. The Word Jesus was made flesh and His focus was entirely on doing the Father’s will. Jesus was here to save the lost and lead the way to salvation. ”
My thoughts are that if Jesus would have come in this time for the first time; He may have been called faggot, queer, strange, etc. But I don’t imagine He would have even tried to convince those foolish people that, in truth serve the devil, ( we call them The World). His goal would be the same as it was before. Would the name calling have hurt Jesus? Yes, I’m sure it would have,! It did before but not for the selfish reason of appearance, but He hurt because of the unwillingness of people to repent and be saved! One last thing. Jesus told us that if we would follow Him then we were going to be hated, despised, called names and even killed for His Name’s Sake! Realize!! This was done to the most powerful Almighty Son of the Most High God! Why should we believe we deserve better treatment than Him? While we are ridiculed for believing on and loving Him, we deserve a lot worse punishment for being the hateful, destructive, arrogant, self-centered beings that we are.
Remember the only way is through Christ! Today has Salvation come to the people of God, do not turn away from this perfect prize, bought and offered to us over 2000 yrs ago on a cross where Royality gave His life as payment. Call on the name Jesus! He WILL HEAR YOU! Repent and offer Him your soul, mind and body (which He gave to you). Ask Him to wash you in His priceless Blood and come and live in you to be your savior, your Lord, your God, your guide and your friend. He is waiting!

Blood Diamonds

The little rock that killed the morals of a nation!
DIAMONDS

 Blood diamonds conflict diamonds have funded devastating civil wars in Africa and still contribute to extreme violence worker exploitation and environmental devastation. The Kimberly process has many limitations and due to those limitations diamonds tainted by human rights abuse are widely sold and verified as conflict free. If anybody does understand the meaning, let me clarify it, the loopholes in the Kimberly process are used to sell conflict diamonds (blood diamonds) as honestly mined diamonds! No force was used, no one was held at gunpoint, or killed as an example to the others, but were mined by people who were paid a legitimate salary for an honest days work! This a lie. That's right ladies and gentlemen they lied, you would think they had no morals. 
I imagine many of you are doing your best to seem surprised and shocked that this kind of atrocity would still be going on in 2015. However, now that you know the truth how many of you are running out right now to sell that diamond back to the dealer? My point? I've lived a little bit longer and I'm a whole lot smarter so the wool isn't pulled that easily over my eyes! I'm 99.9% positive that the total number of people rushing out to return their diamonds equals zero!
Let's delve a little deeper shall we? 
  1. Violence - forced labor, beatings, torture, and murder still staying many diamonds. Violence in diamond mines remains a serious problem. As I stated worker exploitation, environmental degradation, and unspeakable human suffering still too often make these sparkling stones a curse rather than a blessing. If I asks anyone what diamonds symbolized their answers would contain comparisons such as, "symbols of love, commitment, and joyful new beginnings!" The truth is however that violence and injustice remains and every day aspect of diamond mining!

In just 20 years seven African countries have endured brutal civil conflicts fueled by diamonds! Sierra Leone, Liberia, Angola, the Republic of Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of Congo fueled by the absurd obsession of the rest of the world, with what amounts to a rock, diamonds intensify civil wars by financing militaries and rebel militias.
 Are you still feeling good about that ring are that necklace? Then let's keep going! Diamond rich territory is fought over by rival groups the result is bloodshed, loss of life, and shocking human rights abuses – from right to the use of child soldiers. Quoted from the website "Conflict Diamond Trade in Africa", diamonds that fuels civil wars are often called "blood" or "conflict" diamonds. Although many diamond–fueled wars have now ended, conflict diamonds remain a serious problem.
 In 2013, a Civil War erupted in the Central African Republic, with both sides fighting over the country's diamond resources. Thousands, you read that correctly, thousands of people have died and more than 1 million have been displaced. In addition, past wars fueled by diamonds have taken about 3.7 million lives! When I first read this I was horrified and ashamed to be called a child of the most high God! Can you imagine if just half that number were killed in America what our reaction would be? Ask yourself this question, if you and your child or husband, or partner, were forced against your will to work all day in dilapidated conditions while you watch friends, neighbors, brothers sisters, husbands, wives be killed right before your eyes because of a misunderstanding. How long do you think that would be allowed in America?

So it's no stretch of the imagination to understand why millions are still dealing with the mental debilitation caused by these wars: in which friends and family members were lost, lives shattered, and physical and emotional scars that, in my opinion will never heal.

Aside

STOP!!

I LOVE YOU ALL, so no matter what you think or feel towards me, let’s put it aside for now.
WE SHOULD ALL BE OUTRAGED BY WHAT IS TAKING PLACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST! How small and unimportant, childish and self-centered we all are for not letting go of the petty disagreements we are all engaged in here.
For me, I am not replying, posting, or arguing anymore about gay, straight, who is right or wrong, a fool or crazy when this horror is taking place!

Apostasy in print!

The NIV translators make no bones about their distaste for the text that underpins the King James Authorized Version of Holy Scripture. This is the primary difference in all modern versions. The Textus Receptus reflects well over 90% of all manuscripts. This manuscript background was considered primary for all non-Catholic believers from the early church fathers right down to Westcott and Hort of the late 19th century. From the end of that century (a little over one hundred years ago) it took almost one hundred of those years for the Westcott and Hort dependency on a different set of manuscripts to become the accepted text within the evangelical world.

Let’s allow the NIV translators to express their opinion of this change. This chapter in the NIV defense was written by Ronald F. Youngblood. I quote, “It is now almost universally recognized that the Textus Receptus (TR) contains so many significant departures from the original manuscripts of the various New Testament books that it cannot be relied on as a basis for translation into other languages.”

“It is simply to point out that in most cases the readings found in older manuscripts, particularly the Greek uncials Vaticanus and Sinaiticus of the fourth century A.D., are to be preferred to those found in later manuscripts, such as those that reflect the TR.” (The NIV: The Making of a Contemporary Translation, Kenneth L. Barker (Editor), pp. 111-112 .)

Please note the names of two manuscripts that stand out in this quote. The Vaticanus and the Sinaiticus are the primary sources for the multitude of disputes, omissions of entire verses, and additions in the NIV text. These two manuscripts came from the full possession of the Roman Catholic Church. The Vaticanus is named after the Vatican in Rome. The Sinaiticus was found in a Catholic monastery in the Sinai Desert and is so named after that monastery. Just to know that the main/primary manuscripts willingly named by the NIV people were formerly Catholic possessed and promoted is enough for me.

The translators and transcribers of these early manuscripts were men such as Clement, Origin, and other Egyptian reprobates that were quick to denigrate the divinity of Jesus Christ and to attack other great truths of the Holy Bible. These two manuscripts do not agree with each other and have no real authority or reason for such an impact on the Biblical text except for the fact of their ages. Just because they are two of the most ancient manuscripts and because Rome exalts them, they are declared more reliable. When you look at the total picture of all available manuscripts, less than 1% agree with the Vaticanus and Sinaiticus.

To justify the many changes and declarations in the NIV text, Edwin H. Palmer, the executive secretary for the committee on Bible translation for the NIV, wrote the following. “The KJV is not, however, the best translation to use today. This is so for two reasons: (1) it adds to the word of God and (2) it has now obscure and misleading renderings of God’s Word. They did their best, but all they had to work with was a handful of copies of the Greek manuscripts of the New Testament books. In a few sections they had no Greek manuscript at all! Instead, they had to rely on the Latin Vulgate’s rendering of what they thought must have originally been in the Greek!

“Through the providence of God, many more Greek manuscripts had been preserved and were subsequently discovered – in fact, more than five thousand of them. Some of the Greek manuscripts date back to the four hundreds and three hundreds – even to about A.D. 200. These ancient manuscripts were more reliable and more accurate, not being corrupted by errors made during countless times of copying, such as occurred with the late manuscripts used by the KJV.” (The NIV: The Making of a Contemporary Translation, Kenneth L. Barker (Editor), pp. 142-143.)

After giving many examples in the King James Bible that he says are erroneous renderings of scripture according to the Vaticanus and Sinaiticus, he closes with the following statement. “Yet the KJV adds to (and so alters) God’s Word, and it has now-obscure and misleading renderings of many verses. Scores of examples were given, but hundreds of others could have been given. For one who loves God and wants to know exactly what God says to him, a modern translation that is accurate and clear is necessary. Elsewhere I have written:

Do not give them a loaf of bread, covered with an inedible,
impenetrable crust, fossilized by three and a half centuries.
Give them the Word of God as fresh and warm and clear as
the Holy Spirit gave it to the authors of the Bible…
For any preacher or theologian who loves God’s Word
to allow that Word to go on being misunderstood because of the
veneration of an archaic, not-understood version of four centuries ago is inexcusable, and almost unconscionable.” (The NIV: The Making of a Contemporary Translation, Kenneth L. Barker (Editor), p. 156.)
Mr. Palmer died suddenly before this book with his above quotation was published.

The NIV and the Doctrine of the Everlasting Lake of Fire

One of the enduring legacies of this apostate Bible is the complete denial of everlasting punishment for the wicked. I cover this in a booklet entitled: “What Happened to Hell?” Briefly let me state that the translators of the NIV emphatically deny that hell or the Lake of Fire is everlasting judgment.

The title of this chapter is “Why Hebrew ‘Sheol’ was Translated ‘Grave’.” Two quotes will show that rank apostasy reigns utterly in this chapter. The writer stated:
“The curse on the wicked is that they might lie silent in the ‘grave’. (Sheol in Ps. 31:17)”

“The terms bor and shahat are used similarly to Sheol. The psalmist thanks God that he was spared from death, the pit, the dust, the decay, where his dust would lie in silence and no take part in the worship of God. If Sheol here refers to departed spirits, it proves too much! It would prove soul sleep at the least. Much better to find in these terms only a reference to the body and its decay.”

There are many incredible changes in the NIV Bible. They can only be justified by declaring allegiance to the strange manuscripts from the Roman Catholic Church archives. These two primary manuscripts came from Alexandria, Egypt, while the Textus Receptus manuscripts were preserved in and flowed from Antioch where the early church set up headquarters after having to flee Jerusalem in the first century A.D.

Here are a few changes that are overwhelming to me:

  • Jesus is called “Master” forty-six times in the New Testament. The NIV used the term “teacher” instead of “Master.” Why reduce Jesus to a teacher when His very Person calls for the term “Master”?
  • “Sodomy” was eliminated from their text. The rendering was changed to “temple prostitute.” Yes, the Sodomites were “temple prostitutes” but were more than just “temple prostitutes.” This is a serious violation and was applauded by Virginia Mollencott, a lesbian that served as a consultant and English stylist (The word “fornication” was also completely removed.)

  • The word “Lucifer” was removed from Isaiah 14:12 and Satan was actually called, “O morning star,” the same title given to Jesus in the Book of Revelation.

  • The following sixteen verses are completely missing from the NIV New Testament:

  1. “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” (Matthew 17:21)

  2. “For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.” (Matthew 18:11)

  3. “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.” (Matthew 23:14)

  4. “If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.” (Mark 7:16)

  5. “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” (Mark 9:44)

  6. “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” (Mark 9:46)

  7. “But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.” (Mark 11:26)

  8. “And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.” (Mark 15:28)

  9. “Two [men] shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.” (Luke 17:36)

  10. “(For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)” (Luke 23:17)

  11. “For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.” (John 5:4)

  12. “And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” (Acts 8:37)

  13. “Notwithstanding it pleased Silas to abide there still.” (Acts 15:34)

  14. “But the chief captain Lysias came [upon us], and with great violence took [him] away out of our hands,” (Acts 24:7)

  15. “And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.” (Acts 28:29)

  16. “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen.” (Romans 16:24)

  • A process was begun in the NIV to produce a gender free Bible. The following masculine words were reduced by count. (‘he’ 758 times, ‘him’ 1240, ‘his’ 1313, and man, 509) The NIV has already sold and then withdrawn a gender free edition right here in America.

  • Here are a few verses to show the seriousness of what these apostate translators have done to the Word of God.

Exodus 6:3
“And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.”
“I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God Almighty, but by my name the Lord I did not make myself known to them.”

Psalm 83:18
“That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.”
“Let them know that you, whose name is the LORD – that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.”

Romans 1:20
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”

I John 5:7-8
“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.”
“For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.”

Luke 1:28
“And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.”
“The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

Luke 2:22
“And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;”
“When the time of their purification according to the Law of Moses had been completed, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord.”

Luke 2:33
“And Joseph and his mother marveled at those things which were spoken of him.”
“The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him.”

Luke 6:48
“He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.”
“He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.”

Luke 9:56
“For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.”
“and they went to another village.”

Luke 17:36
“Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.”
This scripture completely removed from the NIV

Conclusion

Making a case against the NIV is a simple matter. This version is loved by a compromising church but it cannot be anointed by the Spirit of Truth. Truth is either pure or it is not truth. To dare use a Bible that has blasphemed the Son of God by declaring His truth to be a lie cannot be accepted by a Bible believing person.

For the church world to accept two manuscripts right out of the bosom of the Roman Catholic Church is unthinkable unless you are on your way back to Mother Harlot. The proof is now available for all to see. The evangelical world is going home to her greatest enemy of all the ages of the church dispensation.

I receive thousands of calls, letters, and E-mails. Often these callers tell me of being glorious saved by the blood and then a growing concern begins to develop that something is wrong with the Bible they are reading. It does not take long for a saved, Spirit filled person to feel like they are reading from a Bible that just does not feel right. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth and He will lead a true disciple to the total and ultimate truth.

The Bible (truth) is forever settled in Heaven and the Holy Ghost is the Spirit of Truth. His saving presence will lead you into all truth. “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

It’s funny how and when The Lord chooses to open our eyes about something that we may not even have on our minds! For example, today while doing a little cleaning “Evolution” comes to my mind and right along with that God says, “ If evolution were true then why did it stop? It’s a fact, according to science that it is a long process, and not all at once for everything in the process. Therefore, if we had really evolved from Apes then  some Apes would be further along than others. Why is it not still happening today? Why don’t we see some Apes that are walking around, others beginning to learn to speak maybe even some looking for jobs?  Some would be a one point while others are at another, but we see nothing like this! In the 5000 and some odd years that the Earth has been here NOTHING HAS EVOLVED AT ALL! No more Apes have become human or even shed their fur. All ducks of a species look alike, we don’t see a duck with feathers, webbed feet and the long neck of a dinosaur! Ask a believer in Evolution to show you something in the process of evolving, they will look at you like you are crazy! The problem is that they can’t and this little fact breaks the main rule of Science, “It must be observable!”

Hebrew, homosexuality and salvation!

<img src=”https://bryanmatthews38.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/20140622-031600-11760399.jpg” alt=”20140622-031600-11760399.jpg” class=”alignnone size-full” />

When I first was saved a good many years ago I felt like I needed to learn Hebrew because it was the language of my Lord Jesus Christ. Now, I know a lot of people say Jesus spoke Arabic, I say Jesus could have spoken any language that he chose but the scripture says that He came into his own and they rejected him, and the Israelites spoke Hebrew. It was a very easy language for me to pick up. Which was amazing to me! You see, in high school I had taken French, but in the years that I took French I never dreamed in French. I had not been studying Hebrew but a few months and I began to dream in Hebrew. To me, that was a sign from God that I was fulfilling part of His will for me.
I studied with tremendous zeal! I tried to get the few friends that I have to study it with me which they vehemently refused to do. Sighting reasons like they were too busy, wanted to learn Italian, or German, and a myriad of other excuses. So I turned to some of my Facebook friends and it was an absolute disaster from the beginning. As you are probably aware the practice of transliteration has so many different texts that everybody, it seems, has they’re own spelling of Hebrew words. I began to realize that there really with whom I could practice. People would come into my life wanting to learn Hebrew and before long (even though they would only have been studying Hebrew for a month would begin to correct me)…lol
In other cases the person would reach out every time they saw me online and then would dwindle to where I had to make contact with them first and fight to keep the conversation going.

And I’m sure you can imagine the difficulties of expanding ones vocabulary in another language when the only person that one have to practice with is self. Although, I admit being some what disappointed, I’ve spent enough of my life alone to understand that great things can be accomplished with just yourself, God, hard work and determination. Of course, I hope that someday I will be able to find a group or individual that is truly interested in pursuing an expanding and functioning Hebrew vocabulary.
It’s very hard to find a niche that you fit into when your background is that such as mine. I will explain. When I was very young between five and seven I was sexually involved with my older cousin and a very much older uncle. It wasn’t that I felt molested because I wanted it to happen as many times as I could get it to happen! This led to me confusing love with sex. There is so much more that I want to tell you about that part of my life and maybe someday, if you’re interested, I will! I struggled with those feelings and my hatred of that lifestyle for most of my life. I did not fit in with the other gay people which led to me being a kind of outcast.
However, about 12 years ago was saved by the blood of Christ! Before you even get it into your mind I was not delivered from the homosexual feelings and desires. I continued to struggle daily with those feelings, lust, desires and at the time I was still living with a guy that I had been with for 10 years. However, we were both save at about the same time so our relationship developed more into feelings of brothers.
As time has a habit of doing it moves on and our lives change whether or not that is what we want. The decision that we have to make is whether or not we want our focus to be on ourselves or on what God would have our lives to be. Very often, we find that, although choosing to focus on God’s plan for us is without a doubt the correct thing to do it often leads to seclusion and rejection! My situation was a little different in that even though I did not act on those feelings anymore I was still treated as a pariah in both the homosexual communities and the heterosexual communities. Many friends that I had – let’s go back – the majority of the friends that I had before my salvation through the blood of Christ stopped communicating with me or calling and a few even unfriended me on Facebook.
I will spare you the lists, for now, of the things that God taught me before He delivered me completely from those feelings. Which has really made the devil mad because I don’t have sexual feelings for men or women, but I do have an increased love for their souls and where they will spend eternity. I often wish that I could get people to understand, get them to see that this is very real but even members of my own family cannot see that they stand on the edge of a great abyss!

Gays, You were born that way?

This is excerpt from a few messages by Dr. Joseph Chambers the minister at PawCreek Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“Nothing is so unfair to a homosexual man or lesbian woman than to say to them, “You were made that way.” To suggest such is to remove all hope of change. The average lifespan of a male homosexual, if he does not contract AIDS, is 43 years. If he does, that is reduced to 39.(Family research Institute.) Does the Heavenly Father supposedly create a class of individuals with that kind of reduced life expectancy? To teach such is to breed despair and gloom, and to suggest that homosexuals and lesbians are second-class citizens.”
However, “the marriage of a man and a woman is a type of figure of the Marriage of the Lamb and His Bride. We must understand that same-sex marriage is an attack on this earthly Sacrament also. Those who claim the right of calling the immoral union of two men or two women a “marriage” blasphemes every husband and wife. Same-sex marriage is not just a Sin; it is an abomination preserved for the ultimate judgment of God. By the Holy Ghost, apostle Paul said, “Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers (male prostitutes, especially homosexual prostitutes) and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrews 13:4) No experience of human flesh is more sacred than marriage. The first institution that God established to satisfy the deep longing of a man was his union with woman. God intended that we feel His world with a multitude to love and serve Him.”
“Satan is on a rampage to defiled the family of humankind and the future family of the redeemed. There is no fear that he will succeed, but he will turn this world into a wilderness one more time. The processes all of his debauchery has begun and this will be his final fling. Before we deal with the glory of the future Marriage of the Lamb, we must view the world wide homosexual brothel that Satan is planning. I do not believe that there is any question but that the antichrist will be a homosexual. The world is literally hell-bent on making the sodomite lifestyle the order of the day.
Anyone that refuses to call this lifestyle okay is attacked with ferocity. Sodomites are thrilled to destroy any institution that stands in their way. Their motives and methods cannot be called anything but demonic. It will become a crime to open your mouth to disagree with them. If there is any doubt look at where we are today. You can go to jail and many parts of our country for calling homosexuality a sin. Same-sex immorality, and especially same-sex marriage, is Satan’s darkest imitation.The battle now is to legalize same-sex marriage and to raise the sodomite community to represent the dominant characteristics of mankind. Those that oppose this development will be hated until the rapture and those that missed the rapture will be hunted and destroyed.” Dr. Chambers says, “I believe that the antichrist will seek to cleanse the earth of heterosexual conduct after he gains worldwide control. The Biblical family will be outlawed for 7 dark years.” The Churches, Temples, Mosques, and Synagogues of the world will all become sodomized institutes ruled by prostitutes of this new faith. We have already learned that at least half of the Catholic priest of this world wide religion are Homosexuals.”
“Now the Episcopalians have made the transition to electing an openly gay bishop. For a long time, they have allowed sodomites to serve as priests and become members of their churches. Other denominations are quickly following the same pattern. Bible-believing churches our daily becoming more impossible to find. It will get worse as we await our Lord’s return.”
The person putting this all together for you is not someone who is unfamiliar with the feelings, desires, etc. of the homosexual. I was gay for 36 years until God, Himself willed me to be healed. When I was still gay I would have been infuriated by this message, especially from someone who used to be gay, as I’m sure many of you are. But, now that I have been saved and my focus has shifted to pleasing God, serving Christ, having witnessed His power and mercy, I see clearly the truth in what Dr. Chambers has prophesied!
I want my message to be understood plainly! I am by no means pursuing or advocating the use of hatred and violence towards gay men and women. It is completely unholy, not to mention un-Christ-like! (Who is to serve as our our examples for behavior, attitude, emotion, treatment of others and myriad of other things that are Holy-love!) In my mind it seems that I can hear a lot of people say, “How can I love someone so different from myself?” Well, Christ did it! Keep that thought close in your mind, how different you were/are from Christ and yet He loved you enough to die on the cross so through His blood you could be part of His family!
In closing I just want to remind you of what Christ said, “If you love Me keep My Commandments. And My commandment is that you love one another.”20140615-132411-48251017.jpg

If I am reading the Bible then the thoughts that come my head must be from God, right?

Be very assiduous concerning what you write, quoting scripture as your source! And pray that Almighty God gives you wisdom and reveals to you the meaning behind the passage that you read and quote! Be imperturbable of this one thing, Satan knows the Bible better than any preacher, teacher or evangelist and is always listening to confuse, mislead and tempt the body of Christ.
The scripture forewarns about the desideratum, momentous and perilousness of rightly dividing the word of God! This proficiency, a gift from God that must mature with time and study of the holy Word of God. We cannot take one verse or one segment of passage of scripture and only applied that part when the complete thought may be six passages long.There are so many different interpretations of the Bible out there today that it’s no wonder people are confused! The list of reasons why we need all of those versions runs as multifarious as the versions themselves!
I’ve heard people say before that the aforementioned reasons
constitute why preachers or evangelists etc., as a prerequisite, attend a Bible College. Now I have to ask myself, the knowledge “gained” at these institutions, from where cometh their enlightenment? Is it not man’s knowledge? Without a doubt there are professors who have a very high IQ and have an agglomeration of knowledge deciphered from books and other teachers. However, their knowledge is the knowledge of man!
Let’s see what the Bible says about the knowledge of man: (I Corinthians) chapter 1 verse 25; “because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” Still in (first Corinthians) chapter 3 verse 19: “for the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, he taketh the wise in their own craftiness.” Verse 20, “And again, the Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.” Still in Corinthians we read, “for who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him?” One last scripture can be found in Romans chapter 11 starting at verse 33, “O’ the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who have known the mind of the Lord? Or who have been his counselor? Or who have first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen.”

How Do I win?

Have you ever been to the preverbal “edge of the cliff”, thought to yourself how easy it would be to slip, maybe even stood there for a few, not that you would ever jump, thinking about the freedom?
Sometimes it even feels like someone is pushing ! Most of the time, I do the best that I can do, but it seems like criticism is my reward! There’s always something that I didn’t do, “just one thing that had I NOT forget to do , one thing that would have made it perfect. So what do you do?
Now before I go any further, I want it to be know that I have self-confidence and self-esteem, but everyone reaches a point where they feel like ” the rope is slipping”!</emDoes anyone out there have any experience in this area or pointers .

20140228-181453.jpg

Thank you for this brand new day and help me Lord to do Your will in every possible way.
Almighty God in heaven, look down from up above, and guide me in all things I do, that I do in Christian love!
Friends I’ve known for years tell me I’m in deep despair, but how I wish they knew my heart and the happiness that’s there.
It’s true some days are heavy and yes not all are fun, but I can make it with a smile for I know You’ve already won!
Dear Lord please teach me kindness and patience most of all, that through my life before the world, they see You are all in all. by: Bryan Matthews

But what about ME, God?

So many times when I’ve talked to sinners about God I fear it falls on deaf ears and hard hearts. I use the following example because it has all the components.
While talking to a guy that is gay, I used the Scripture for those are Gods words not mine. The response went something along the lines of, Well, God wants me to be happy and so God knows that if I followed that Scripture then I would have to give up the thing that makes me happy! I’m sure that God will understand, if it is wrong which I don’t believe it is, I’ll still go to heaven. (Not word for word, but that was the majority.)
More and more often we here people (Christians and sinners) using the, “My Happiness First! God Will Just Have To Accept Me!”, defense-delusion!
One Scripture that makes their, “Me, Myself and I” proposal null and void is found in II Corinthians 5:15 KJV says, “And that He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again.”
The above statement was not intended to single out gays as the worst possible sinners and deserve to be persecuted or hated, etc. Since there is NO DEGREE of sin with God then if you told a lie today then your “robe” is just as soiled as the gay man who slept with 5 men today.
Just remember, People that live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
If you are not saved, but maybe you have been feeling down, confused, guilty and a multitude of other emotions, that is Jesus calling out your name and waiting for your response! Don’t put Him off! Don’t ignore want is happening, “The one and only Son of the Living God desires to bring you into our Family!” Since you were born you were given an ability so that if you would except the salvation won for you by Christ, you ability God will use to build the “Body of Christ”!
I promise there is peace and happiness, fellowship and involvement when you repent and except Jesus. We must love Him more than we love anyone or anything! Don’t worry you’ll discover that it’s really not a huge hardship to concentrate on pleasing Abba God! In return God fills us with contentment and joy!
If you want to talk, feel free to contact me.

ARE YOU AN ARK BUILDER?

My Facebook post today was “Are you an art builder?“. I’m sure that confused a lot of people and made a lot of people think.
So let’s go back to the beginning to discover exactly what I’m talking about: we read in Genesis chapter 6 verses 5-8, “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was on evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy the man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and the beast, and the creeping thing, and the fouls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” Now we move to Genesis chapter 6 verse 13, “And God said unto Noah, the end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”
And we know that God told Noah to build the Ark, told him what to make it out of and everything else that needed to be done to keep God’s commandment for Noah. It took Noah many years to complete the Ark, I imagine, all the while people were coming around and talking with each other saying, “That crazy Noah! It’s never rained we don’t even know rain! He says some God told him that He was going to flood the earth and everything was going to die. Can you believe that? So, are you going to the party tonight?” Maybe some even tried to dissuade Noah from building the Ark saying things like, “Our “scientist” or “prophets”, whatever they called them, “they don’t say anything about this happening. You should just go back to living your life!”
Boy were they wrong! We know what happen next the whole world flooded and all life on earth that wasn’t in the Ark died. A sobering thought!
Ark builder, part 2:
Today we have heard for many years, yes even many generations, that the world is coming to an end, judgment day is coming, the need for salvation through the blood of Christ, the horrors of hell for the unsaved soul, reading the Bible is important, following the commandments of God is essential and not to lean on our own understanding or the understanding of prominent scientist and doctors and theologians but on the word of God.
God has told us in His word that the end of time will come. We have it in an entire book called, The Bible! Many people read it, but how many of those who read it actually HEAR it’s words and warnings? My guess is fewer than 5%. Oh Bryan, how can you say that! Well take a look at the world we live in and the things that go on around us every day.
In His word God has told everyone that, “it’s going to flood”, so to speak. Just like He told Noah that He was going to destroy the world He has told us! Metaphorically, are you gathering your Gopher wood, measuring out the rooms, the window, how many stories it’ll be, and gathering the animals? Or are you with the crowd saying, “Look at those crazy Christians! They say that God told them He was going to destroy the world, and that there was going to be a judgment day and some people would go to hell and some to heaven! They believe all this and get it from some book called the Bible. Can you believe that!?”
After putting down all that the Holy Ghost has laid on my heart to write, we are led back to the original question,
“Are you an Ark builder?”

For all have come short of the glory of God.

I know that is the case for me! Believe me, I love my God with my whole being, but the unruly human part of me I still have to keep a tight rein on because if I become complacent or take my spiritual eyes off of Christ then I begin to “sink” just like Peter did when he was walking towards Jesus on the water. As long as he was focused on Jesus, I imagine the water beneath his feet was like rock, but Peter began to look around and saw the violence and turmoil of the water and the storm. The Scripture says that he began to sink; notice the wording, he began to sink! Peter didn’t just fall into the water like we do when we jump in, but maybe first up to his ankles, then to his knees, upwards to his chest and then yelled for Jesus to save him. This is a great example, as is the way with God, He uses one thing as a lesson to benefit us over 2000 years later. We don’t just fall back into sin, but if we take our focus off of Christ it won’t take long before we are not talking with God as much (ankles), then we are doing little things that the world does (knees), after that we are almost completely back running with the world (chest). However, unlike Peter who had sense enough to call on the Lord, many times it takes a tragedy and then we are yelling and begging for the Lord to save us. Let’s all say this Psalm to God now:

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.” Psalm 51 1-3

I try to live my life by the Holy Scriptures and sometimes I fall and come short but the grace of God is abundant and the blood of Christ Jesus washes me clean. Remember we ARE NOT PERFECT! The Apostle Paul said he repented daily! God said there was not a righteous man on earth. We have all come short, oh so very short, of the GLORY of The Living GOD! If anyone tells you they are perfect then they lie, because the Bible says, Let all men be liars and God the truth! For it is impossible for God to lie.
This is my confession and prayer:
Our most righteous and eternal God, I am truly sorry for having offended Thee! Your Word says that when we are tempted we are lead astray by our own lust and enticed, and this my Lord is my sins. I know that my sins have stained me black and I ask in Jesus’ name that I be washed in His blood that I might be made white as snow so You can once again look on me. You know each sin that I have committed and it is Your grace, Oh God, that I seek. Your Word also says that if we admit our sins You are true and just to forgive us. This I know is true and I will strive to live according to the teaching left for us in the Holy Scriptures. In Jesus holy name I pray, Amen!
LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO!

This is what you are attempting to do but I can, most assuredly point out more than 5 reasons that your bucket will not hold water! I have to ask, first, do you read a Bible of any kind? Not the Koran, or the Egyption Book of the dead, or the Mormons , etc. because you are completely missing the mark, ahkey! Ata lo o,teck Baroukshim Elohime! (You do not love god, Jesus said, If you love me keep my commandments! You have proved in this note that you have, NO RESPECT FOR GOD! Never say again that you love Jesus until you get your like straight and stop sinning!
    Listen attentively : GOD IS NOT MOCKED,!! For whatsoever a man soweth that shall he reap! If of the flesh, corruption, and if of the spirit, life everlasting! Glory to God!!
