Know God or KNOW God?

John 5:31-40

If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

Commentary

Today, consider vs. 39-40. Jesus is speaking to the religious leaders of the time – the ones who have memorized scripture. You can study scripture all of your life and still not come to Jesus. Knowing God comes to you through relationship with Jesus Christ. You can know about God without knowing God yourself. These scholars of scripture are waiting for a foretold savior’s arrival, yet they do not recognize that Christ is that savior…that Messiah. Christ alone is the living Word of God that sets us all free from the law of sin and death.

Jude: A Warning to the Churches August 26th 2018

Needing a Friend

Be careful and choose your friends wisely. Later I have something to share with you all. It is a clear warning to each of one of us . I am 52 and I have just become aware of this wicked thing being disguised as something good. (My hope will be to reveal just how easy it is to be deceived in this busy hectic world. Often we just glance at something that seems good and claims to be Godly and we go with it. I will show later how dangerous that is. Stick close to Jesus Christ in these dark days. He is truly our best friend and our ONLY hope. (If you seek Jesus Christ only then the Holy Spirit will dwell with you and guide you and you won’t have to fear being fooled by the deception that is scattered like litter all around us. Waiting for one to trip and fall and to be devoured by the evil prowling around for the next victim.

1 Thessalonians 5:20-24

Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.


Commentary

There is clearly a place for the prophetic in the new covenant in Christ Jesus. Prophecy upon prophecy was fulfilled by the life of Christ and in many situations Jesus mentions that He does certain things to “fulfill that which was spoken” by various Old Testament prophets. Part of our sanctification is training in the discernment of what is good and what is evil. This work cannot be done apart from the power of God manifest within us in the person of the Holy Spirit. In this way God is right there with us going through each test and trial, leading and shaping us for His glory.

John Haller’s Prophecy Update “Things My Father Taught Me” June 18th, 2017

“#iwillNOTsubmit | Steve Cioccolanti’s ALARM We Are at TIPPING POINT”

Oh To Know You More

1 Chronicles 16:11-12 

<

p class=”text” style=”color:rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:medium;line-height:normal;”>Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually. Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

Past Persecution 

The word of the Lord couldn’t be more true.  True then and I would say it is still true today.   It has been especially easy to see for many in other countries around the world.  Now here in America we are seeing the greatest division among ourselves that I have ever witnessed.  I consider myself to be a fair person.   Someone who tries to stand back and make judgements based on many things.  I don’t think you can always simply say this rule applies here.   Maybe the rule dies apply as law itself goes but then again I am not a judge.  What I am is a person who desires to find compassion for all sides.  I try to listen and to give a fair and honest assessment.   I try to deal with people from where they are.  From there perspective.  That has always helped me in my day to day work and life.

What I am seeing now in this country disturbs me greatly.  No one will listen rationally to anything good.  You know, just good sense.  Now it seems that many, NOT ALL, are it is either black or white. If you are white then you are the problem and some want to hang you from a tree.  Today’s problems feel as though we have simply rolled back time.  Before my time.  Seems that this movement is evil and is ‘hell bent’ on making everyone pay for the pent up anger that is clearly still there.   Most are younger than me and like me didn’t live during the time when segregation was happening.   So, is it simply anger passed down from generation to generation?  

I  feel like yes, there will always be a certain amount of racism but only because of ignorance.   What I seem to be seeing now is something much different.   Something evil. Something taking all of us back to a time most of us have only seen on television movies.   Heartbreaking things that no sane person would agree with.  Yet, here we are.  Are people creating segregation again only it is the people and not the government?  

In Matthew 24 we read. (Just pointing out a few and not all.  Go and pray and read over it with discernment of the time.)

6. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars….

7. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  

9.  Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for my names sake.

10.  And many will be offended,  will betray one another, and will hate one another. 

11.  Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.

12.  And BECAUSE lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

2 Thessalonians 1:3-4
We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.  Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.

COMMENTARY 

First, this church is being persecuted. Second, while they are being persecuted, their “faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of them abounds toward each other”. (NKJV) Persecution can bring much pain and suffering, yet this church somehow continues to love one another through the persecution that they face. Lord God, please transform our hearts and press out authentic love for one another, for Your church, that is uncompromising. Jesus said, “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” (John 15:12-NIV) Help us love one another, as Christ loved us!

Prepare for War

I am hoping if you are a christian that you are already prepared and that you not just say, indeed I am prepared but that you continue daily to always keep in shape for running the race and prepared for spiritual warfare.   You cannot be in shape 6 months ago and assume that without continued working out that you will still be ready for the race that is going to start tomorrow.   Daily we are in war, and this I am speaking of is spiritual warfare.

Ephesians 6:11-12
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Ephesians 6:14-16
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;

Ephesians 6:17-18
and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,

Love you all and God bless you and may God Almighty,  who was and is and who is to come – have mercy upon each of us and not because we deserve it by our own actions but because of the grace given to us because of the blood of Jesus Christ who knew no sin and yet He gave His life and suffered for the sins of all the world.  Romans tells us that the wages of sin is death. But, for those who believe AND accept the free gift that has already been paid for by Jesus Christ at Calvary, for them there is hope.  We have redemption in Jesus Christ.   God loves each of us and no one has done too much that they cannot be saved by Jesus Christ who was born and lived and died and rose again so that we might be saved.   There will come a day when that open door is shut.   Please don’t wait.  Seek the Lord God while He is near.

Please look at the world around and read the Holy Bible.   The judgements spoken of over and over in the scriptures tells us of God’s love for you and me and when nations begin to grow more evil because they have pushed God out He seems to try to get the attention of those who cannot see, so that they might see and so that they might turn from there evil ways and come to the arms of our Savior. The storm clouds are growing darker.   You and I could be gone today with a heart attack,  a car accident or something much worse. There is no time left.

Call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ today and begin to ask Him to reveal Himself to you through the reading of His word.  Grow close to Him. When we read the Holy Bible God will give those who truly seek Him wisdom and understanding.
