Deception's Deceived...Who Are They? Part 3

Image
We live in a world that is awash with a "gospel" that is "NOT" the "Gospel." Because of this deception we have MANY deceived people who believe this "NOT" gospel, is the "Gospel "and are deceiving MANY into believing  it too. We indeed perilous times but, I am not referring to the threat of ISIS or the threat of World War 3. I am talking about the acceptance of deception's lies as Truth and presenting it as the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We are in dire need of examining ourselves and ask where our loyalties rest. Are we loyal to God...or...are we loyal to religion?  Do we  believe a particular teaching because it is Biblical or because some seminarian denominated professional said it was Biblical? Because someone is seminarian denominated trained does not mean all he teaches is Bible Truth?

Spiritual truth is available, but is found only in the One who said, “I am the way, the truth and the life,” and as taught by His appointed Teache…

Deception's Deceived are MANY...Who Are They? Part 2

Image
In part one we looked at the identifiers to determine as to who may be the deceived deceivers that are deceiving MANY. Let's continue looking at the issue.

Has the the "angel of light" so deceived God's people, that their beliefs are so weak that they  cannot be open to examination and questioning? Or, is it that they truly are that feeble? Have deception's deceived been so hooked by the religious agenda that they are totally ambivalent to the devils infusion that the deception they is accepted by them as truth. Is it that they cannot see the deception lies therefore, refuse to search for the truth themselves. Does that not confirm the truth of Jesus' words, “For MANY shall be coming in My name, saying, I am the Christ and shall be deceiving MANY." How readily religionists are being deceived, swallowing poisonous false teachings and practices without question.

The religionists convince themselves that this man-ordained religious routine equals "spirit…

Deception's Deceived are MANY...Who Are They? Part 1

Image
In Matthew 7:22, Jesus says that “MANY will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord, Was it not in Your name that we prophesy, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name do many wonderful works? Then I will say to them, I never knew you. Depart from Me, workers of iniquity."

Who are the ones deceiving the "MANY?"
Who are the "Many" that are deceived?
Who are the "Many" that are workers of iniquity?"

We read many times in the scriptures of false Christ’s, deceitful workers, false prophets, false brethren, deceivers, wolves, false shepherds, false teachers, etc.

How can we recognize them?   What distinguishes them as such?  One thing is for sure...there are MANY of them.  Jesus tells us so.  He not only tells us so, but He also identifies who the MANY are!

The identifiers as to who they are:
1.  There are many of them.
2.  They have prophesied (taught the Bible; preached sermons) in the name of Jesus.
3.  They have driven out demons in the name of Jes…

Has GRACE...GONE-A-MUCK!

Image
Grace Haters say that the Grace Lover's belief is extreme and is nothing other than grace gone-a-muck, meaning that Grace has reached beyond its limits and is false grace. Grace Robbers fail to understand that by its very nature GRACE is EXTREME, LIMITLESS, BOUNDLESS and when it is seems not extreme enough to reach the most vilest person alive, God causes Grace to abound making it more EXTREME!

There is no such thing as TOO MUCH GRACE!

The grace robbing religionists preach and teach...the that God's Grace is limited by their GRACE-BUTTING. Their grace-butters-gospel is a shame-and-blame game that leaves people guilt-ridden, brow-beaten and veils the Amazing Grace of our Loving Lord, stifling its empowerment, due to their tradition of taking the Old Covenant system and moving it to this side of the cross and mixing it with grace and calling it the gospel.

The Grace Haters teach that too much Grace is considered to be dangerous and is referred to it as false Grace or grace-gone-a-m…

Grace Robbers.

Image
Grace robbers...voice your nasty opposition against God's Amazing Grace. Call into question people's salvation because they do not believe the way you believe. Express your animosity by quoting out-of-context Bible verses to validate you interpretation of the Bible and to shoot down any interpretation that is different than yours. Teach that God's Grace is insufficient and needs people's doing to accomplish His plan for humanity. Discredit God's compassion, mercy, and love by by your  "butting" and condemning people to eternal suffering. Discredit the character of our Loving Father God that Jesus His express image reveals to us by making Him out to be a tyrannical terrorist. Dilute the purity of the Gospel of Grace by mixing it with the "Ministry of Death" that the scripture refers to the Mosaic Law as.

Your intolerant, belligerent endeavors, due to a literal and legalistic interpretation of the Bible and a misunderstanding of God's grace, lo…

The Ministry of Death?

Image
Many religionists believe that believers on this side of the cross believe we are under the Mosaic Law and obligated to obey to the commands and demands  and the do's and don'ts contained therein as the measuring stick for spirituality?

In so doing they believe and operate under the "Ministry of Death"? Should that be the case? I assume that ALL religionists would say they do not live under such a ministry.

What was God's purpose in giving the Mosaic Law to the Jewish people?

Well if religionists believe the bible as they say they do, then there is no choice but to believe that the purpose of the Law was to bring people to the knowledge of sin and make people aware of their inability to conquer sin. The bible says in Romans 3:20, “Through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.” Did not Paul say, “For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, “Do not covet.” Religionists need to accept the plain truth of the bible in that the…

The Middle East Crisis.

Image
With the constant upheaval always threatening stability in the Middle East, many religionists are flooding the internet and Facebook speculating the rapture event, the rise of the Antichrist and the outpouring of the wrath of God on humanity is around the next bend.

The prophetic guns of the gloom and doomers are once again being loaded with bogus fear-mongering ammunition of impending doom because of world upheavals, planetary events (blood moons), and misinterpreted Bible verses and predicting that the wrath of God is about to be unleashed upon humanity and that the end of the world is near causing people undue fear as to what tomorrow may bring.

I've got news for you...GOD is NOT going around in circles ringing His hands and shaking His head in utter despair with a worry hat on because of what ISIS is doing...Obama is doing or not doing...what is happening in the country of Israel or any other country for that matter. Humanity has run-a-muck and most of the run-a-mucken is reli…

The Do's and Don'ts of the Bible.

Image
There is no doubt that the Bible has lots of do's and don'ts, commands, demands, rules and rituals. But they were never meant to produce man-made-doctrines, denominated denominations, segregated buildings called the "House of the Lord" to house the different denominations, nor are they meant to determine a person's spirituality or dedication to God based on their performance in keeping the laws and obeying the rules even though the the religious denominational world is based, built and operates on such thinking. Such use of the Bible is misuse and abuse and hinders the work of God in and through His Community of the Redeemed in the Community of Humanity.

Treated in its proper context the rules, demands and commands of the scripture reveal our inability to gain or maintain a relationship with God while pointing us to Jesus Christ in order to know the character of His Father God. After the law leads us to recognize God’s character and our inability to keep the deman…

THE BIBLE: MISUSED, ABUSED, DISTORTED AND DEFORMED! Part 3

Image
Lets take a look at another word that the translators mistranslated that portrays our loving Father God in a very negative light. In fact it makes Him out to be the ultimate sadist and terrorist of all time.

That word is "hell."

Is there a a torture chamber of hell that the vast majority of God's crowning creation will spend eternity in everlasting suffering and punishment as is the belief of the "Christian religion"? "HELL NO"!

If the chambers of hell is the final home of sinning sinners, sinning saints, children and adults alike, why was it never mentioned to sinners like Adam, Eve and Cain, or to the bad people of Sodom and Gomorrah and Pharaoh who defied God repeatedly?

Now...I am not a theologian, nor am I the son of a theologian. I am not a prophet, nor am I the son of a prophet. I am not a scholar, nor am I the son of a scholar. I am not a sadist, nor am I a son of a sadist.

BUT...I am the son of a MERCIFUL, KIND,COMPASSIONATE AND LOVING FATHER GOD…

THE BIBLE: MISUSED, ABUSED, DISTORTED AND DEFORMED! Part 2

Image
Yesterday's post asked a question regarding the translating of the scriptures by the translators in the producing of the Bible.

Let me ask the question this way as a precursor to today's post.

Were the translators translation of the scripture from Hebrew and Greek language that make up the Bible, always true to the root meaning of the text translated?

For starters lets take a look at one of those words that the translators mistranslated that has impacted the people of the world and has subverted, bastardized and prostituted the purpose of the Community of the Redeemed in the earth.

The word I am referring to is the word "Church."

The bastardization of the Word "Church" is borne out at just about at every Sunday-go-meeting in every denominated building every Sunday in the words of the preacher..."I welcome you out to Church this morning, so nice to see so many in the House of the Lord." "This is the place where the Lord dwells and where w…

THE BIBLE: MISUSED, ABUSED, DISTORTED AND DEFORMED! Part 1

"But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is from God; that we might know the things that were freely given to us of God; which things also we speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Spirit teaches; combining spiritual things with spiritual words." (1 Corinthians 2:12-13)

What would you say is the number one responsibility of Bible translators?   Would you not agree that the function of translators is to translate written material from one language into another language, assuring that the text being translated  will project its original meaning to the translated version as precisely as possible?

It is impossible to understand scripture and to know the mind of God without the Spirit's illumination and revelation to make the scripture alive, otherwise, it is mere words on paper.

 We must stay with words "which the Spirit teaches" (1 Cor. 2:13) and be careful, when we attempt to explain an idea expressed by the…

Gracelessness Shows a Lack of Trust in God.

Image
“May grace and peace be yours in fullest measure” "according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood: May grace and peace be yours in the fullest measure." (1 Peter 1:2)!

I wonder why so many people who claim to to experience God's Grace are content to murk around in the shallowness at the shore of the Ocean of God's Grace without ever launching out where there is the FULLEST of measure to experience.

Ought we not to rest in the abundance of God’s wonderful grace and the total sufficiency of all His spiritual resources in the greater grace (James 4:6)  of the all-sufficient, inexhaustible and boundless all-sufficient Grace that our loving God has provided for His created people?

For it is Grace that saves us, maintains us, sustains us, endures us, teaches us, empowers us, sanctifies us, justifies us, victory-fie us, and enables us to be effective as His Community of the redeemed …

Spiritual Terrorism.

Image
Is this fear-mongering the Gospel of good news. 

“Some of you, God hates you. Some of you, God is sick of you. God is frustrated with you. God is wearied by you. God has suffered long enough with you. He doesn’t think you’re cute. He doesn’t think it’s funny. He doesn’t think your excuse is "meritorious". He doesn’t care if you compare yourself to someone worse than you, He hates them too. God hates, right now, personally, objectively hates some of you.” These are the words of the man pictured above.

Wow, is this man so close to God that He knows the mind and heart of God on the matter? I find it odd that Jesus the express image of God shows Him as loving, compassionate and kind to sinners, while preachers show Him as a hateful retributive terrorizing sadist.

To many religious people love to hate and are known...not for who and what they love...they are known for who and what they hate.

Research shows that religonists are known more for what they hate rather than what they love.…

The Bible.

Image
Some people think that because I do not believe the Bible as being infallible or error-less, it is just as well for me to cast it aside because it is no longer trustworthy. they are wrong, it is not the Bible that I do not find trustworthy...I believe it to be the most inspiring book ever written. What I do not trust is the way people misuse, abuse, and interpret it outside its  cultural, contextual and historical context. 

When I put aside the seminarian denominated trained  professional man-made indoctrinations that was spoon-fed me, I more clearly heard the voice of the Spirit, God's appointed, anointed Teacher of Truth and it set me free from the man-made ideologies and religious bondage of manipulation and control.

I have higher respect for the Bible when it is given its rightful place, more than I did when I gave it a  wrongful place of idol worship as the "Living Word," of God, even thought I do not support the premise that it is infallible and error-less.

Though th…

The Purpose of the Church.

Image
Religion is in the denominational business producing a product that religious marketing Pa-Stars are selling for organizational or personal gain. Christ did not establish the Community of the Redeemed to start a marketing religious business that sells gospel blessing by fleecing the flock of their money.

The social club mentality of church-as-usual in segregated denominated buildings, is the reason religion is one of the greatest enemies of the work of God through a unified Community of the Redeemed in the earth today. As the Community of the Redeemed we are to live in the knowing that Jesus came to eliminate religious segregation, and religious expectations so people can live the freedom of the grace life in and through Jesus Christ.

The purpose of the (Church) the "Community of the Redeemed" as the Community of Faith following Jesus, is to influence the Community of Humanity regarding the Gospel of God's Grace and Love in their daily living of life.

The goal of the…

Is it the Christian Thing to Say

Image
Is it Christian like to say of a person who has done drastically bad things; "I hope they get their just reward and after serving their punishment under the law, they go straight to hell"?

I am sure most of you have hear the phrase..."You can't be a Christian if"...followed by what the religious accepted wrongs are.

You can't be a Christian if;

You don't go to Church.
You belong to that religion.
You don't believe the Bible is infallible and error-less.
You have not repeated the "sinners prayer."
You are pro-choice.
You are a homo-sexual.
You do not tithe to your Church.
You smoke cigarettes.
You are a prostitute.
You are a drug addict.
You have a glass of wine or beer.
You don't believe in the rapture.
You do not believe in the Trinity.
You do not stand for Christian causes.

YOU CAN"T BE A CHRISTIAN IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE DOCTRINE OF ETERNAL PUNISHMENT IN THE TORTURE CHAMBER OF HELL!

The predominately thought pattern of the religionist is...…

God is Good...ALL THE TIME!

Image
God does not reward you according to YOUR GOODNESS or GOOD DEEDS.

God does not reward you according to YOUR REBELLION or YOUR BAD DEEDS.

God rewards you according to HIS GOODNESS, HIS LOVE and HIS Grace.

Therefore, because:

God's Goodness is good.
God's Love is limitless.
God's Grace is measureless.
God's Power knows no boundaries.
God's Mercies fail not.


Therefore, how can there be a hell torture chamber of eternal punishment where people, God created, loves and died for burn forever and forever in a living state, when hell is no boundary for God's goodness, love, grace, power, and mercy!

Religious Busyness.

Image
The busyness of religion creates an “outward doing” oriented people obsessed with their inner fears and perpetual anxieties as they try to achieve an enviable status of spiritually elitism to gain the recognition the religious elite, rather than creating an “inward being" people, reflecting and projecting humbleness, peace and love, doing their doing because of Jesus working in and through them, the true characteristics of of a spiritual relationship with God.

Behind the busyness of religious activity is the assumption that a person's doing determines who a person is as well as their spiritually. The busyness of doing religion, if only an outward expression to maintain spirituality without the qualities of being in Christ manifested in them will not produce spiritual maturity, rather it  is an expressionless endeavor of self-effort to boost egoistic superiority and to look good religiously.

Because a person works harder and longer at religious activity does not mean they are sp…

Hide from the Wrath of God.

Image
Much of the modern church environment is paralyzed by the ungodly spirit of "FEAR" and it shows in the religionist alarmists, the defeatists verbalization they use to describe the world happenings and the impending doom they predict is about to be come upon people.

It is preached over church pulpits, talked about in church pews and lobbies, religious media output is articulating it. You see it in their facial expressions, in their judgmental and condemning quivering voices as they slam the bible on their pulpits. It dominates the Facebook and blog rants of the of the religious fear-mongers.

To these fear-mongering mongers everything is now a threat...Stephen Harper, Justin Trudeau, Barack Obama, illegal immigrants, Arabs, Gays, the Government and Muslims and even Grace living believers.

According to the chicken-little fear-monger's mongering fear tactics “The Sky Is Falling In”. The gloom and doom say-ers have more faith in Islamic power to bring destruction and chaos and …

Why are You Still Wandering Around in a Spiritual Wilderness?

Image
What had to happen before Joshua could lead the children of Israel into their promised inheritance?

Moses had to die. Then and only then was Joshua free to bring the children of Israel into the promise land.

It is important for us to understand something here regarding the Post Covenant Promise. What had to happen...for us on this side of the cross to fully enter into the workings of the New Covenant Promise?

Jesus had to die and rise from death. True, Jesus died and rose from the grave. Still the vast majority has not entered into the Post Covenant Promise...why...there something else that has to happen before we can move into the fulfillment of the finished work of Christ. Before one can live in the freedom of the Grace Gospel the Law Covenant that is imprinted on one's heart that one live by...must die. Only then will the Spirit of Truth get through to you regarding your promised inheritance regarding the freedom of Grace and only then will the mind set obeying God to receive sal…
