Blowing Smoke

On board one of my tugboats I had a man tell me once that I have had enough experiences for three lifetimes! Of course, I ate up that recognition, especially when constantly made to feel like I was the lesser early in life.

The Character of a person I have always felt was worth far more than earthly accomplishments, and yes, you can have both, but most people get “puffed up” in ego by their status in the world with few remaining humble enough in realizing that most of their personal gains are but a gift from God, and not of themselves!

You will remember that Jesus told Pilot that all the authority he was given on earth, was by his Father who was in heaven. With that, Pilot attempted to wash his hands of the Lord’s condemnation by men!

I have known a few men who remained humble, despite their outstanding success in the world, one was a cousin of mine who had been a paratrooper during World War Two. He understood the value of a man’s character despite his station in life.

But then we will always have the ones who I call the “smoke blowers”; these type people create an illusion of grandeur while projecting their importance onto others. This is not to say that they have not had their successes and experiences in life, only that they tend to be creative in over-dramatizing themselves, often at the expense of others. This is what allot of politicians do, they enhance their importance and sometimes will even fabricate stories, thus drawing more attention to themselves.

Like most people who have known some degree of struggle within their lives, I find these types of people repulsive. I had once met a man who served in the infantry during the First World War (The great War) in France under General Black Jack Pershing; I was humbled and amazed at what was most important to him: wool blankets which he pointed to on our museum ship, he got very excited exclaiming how wonderful it was to have a wool blanket while in the trenches of WW I, in keeping warm from the snow and rain, and then he added, if you had two blankets; boy you were in heaven!

I then realized just how spoiled our society has become to those who had lived 100 years ago! The character of these old timers often embraced the very basics of life’s necessities, as if they were of a great prize, which was very sobering to me!

One thing which remains consistent to me, is that the one who struggles in life, seems to develop a greater character then people who have simply been given earthly wealth and status. And oftentimes people who increase their prominence in the world tend to forget either wear they came from and will often look down upon others, who may have overcome even greater obstacles within their lives!

This goes far beyond race, gender, beliefs, or place of origin; rather I am speaking about the character of the individual soul, the merit of an individual and what they do with what they have been given yet overcome. Jesus Christ, (my Lord) exemplifies to perfection the Supreme character of what a man or women should actually be; he was God incarnate yet was humble enough to wash the dirt from others feet!

This should be the nature exemplified in all of us who claim his Glorious name; yet “blowing smoke” in the face of others we consider as “lesser” should be shameful to us who have been given so very much in being redeemed.

Not by word, but by power

Published on May 10, 2019

1 Corinthians 4: 19-21
19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power. 20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. 21 What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?
1 Corinthians 2:4
And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

The Scapegoat

Published on May 8, 2019

It seems to me very significant spiritually, that Satan has adopted the goat as his symbol. The Bible is normally geared towards the disciple of Jesus Christ, yet it is used by the world and his wife often to justify themselves before an all-knowing God. Matthew 10 : 30-40 speaks volumes about the “sufferings of Christ” found in those whom the Lord has chosen to do a work within. This is a spiritual work, and it is often hidden on a conscious level from those around us. Yet the actual child of God will feel it, and suffer it, unlike anyone else around them! I think that the scapegoat is normally of strong moral courage, and that’s why they are perhaps picked, they are a type of Christ, but the blows to them are no less painful.

Different God’s

Published on Apr 30, 2019

The “New Age” seeks a different god, than the God of the Bible: and the world will worship him, yet reject the other(s), in now the end of the age… I examine Alan Watts ~ Society Is A Hoax , Take Control Of Your Life – video, and what I know of the Bible, and “so called” 19th century thinking, all now considered antiquated! Now we are in the NEW AGE when science is god, and all-knowing man is supreme… It won’t be long now brethren!

The steps of the righteous…

Published on Apr 23, 2019

Are, Ordained of God. If the Lord is with you no one can be against you! I decided tonight to tell a little story about how the Lord “showed up those” who wanted to “show us up” as inferior… But some times, it is the righteous who are allowed to rise to the occasion and be on top, but it usually takes some testing of our faith first!

Another bloody lighthouse!

Matthew 16:13-20  (KJV)

13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.


 

“The Christ, the son of the living God” is the Rock of Ages, the promised one for the remission of sin. “Upon this truth” He will build His Church (Eklisia), and the gates of hell shall not prevail!

Also, Jesus (the Bride Groom) is saying that he will build his “church” – he does not say that man will build his church. Man (humanity) has no control of how the Father decides to work within a person’s life (or not) by the power of the Holy Spirit. Many churches preach the gospel, yet it is the Lord God who decides to empower and fill his elect.

All the preaching and “temple building” in the world will not affect God’s will for our lives, as He alone is sovereign moving in his own providence in whom he chooses to do a work.

Only an anti-Christ would dare and assume that they have this power in moving independent of God’s leading.

Unfortunately, this is what a large portion of the so-called “church” has become. I believe this is symbolized in Revelations 17-18, the Chief anti-Christ (Harlot, an unfaithful bride) and her daughters, the offspring of the Roman Catholic Church – even the so-called Protestants who may also be unfaithful to the Bridegroom, Jesus Christ.

This is those who have a form of Godliness, but not the power thereof, and the faithful are instructed to avoid such as these. The Bible does not say to try to convert or to “protest” them, but rather to simply avoid them.

If one is to repent (change their mind) about such heretical teachings, and earnestly and humbly follow Christ, that brother or sister is then restored to the rest of the brethren.

Moving independent of our Lord’s leading in “building something for Jesus – the do it yourself salvation plan, has become epidemic today, primarily because of the “lack of knowledge” (spiritual) that an Elder is required to understand, along with sound doctrines.

I won’t mention any names, but a friend of mine told me that the Eastern Shore, (wear I live) is about to be invaded by yet another tambourine beating, guitar strumming, hand waving charismatic personalities in which I had fled from earlier in my life from the overcrowded western shore, and back to my roots, I might add! I now feel invaded by the very people I attempted to move far away from!

To me, you cannot have a “mega church movement” as the Lord God moves in individuals and not on mass like a bunch of cattle or Catholics (at the risk of being offensive). Rather the Lord moves quietly amongst the hearts who are still and will listen to him he has done a work within.

I will stop there, as I do not wish to paint people with too broad a brush, but I can tell you that the Lord is the one who builds his church, and this is not done in the flesh like at a carnival; the word derived from carnal!

Be still and know that “I am God” – the Bible teaches; it does not say to build something for Jesus, even in our misplaced zeal.

Knocked off course

Satan desires to destroy our faith in any way he can, for the more mature brethren he uses doctrinal beliefs and concepts, in an effort to derail and put to ruin our faith. Be aware, this can happen to anyone within the realm of battle, right up to the point we’re absent from the body, and present with the Lord! Remember, Salvation is of God, that no man may boast!

Rejections of Men…

 

 

Published March 23, 2019

 

One thing which I have learned, is to never think you will be excepted by men because of your walk with the Lord. You will not, unless of course you sell yourself out like the whores of Babylon continually do!

Socialism is wickedness

Warning Against Idleness

2 Thessalonians 3: 6-15

 Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is walking in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us.

For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you,

nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you.

It was not because we do not have that right, but to give you in ourselves an example to imitate.

10 For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat.

11 For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies.

12 Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.[a]

13 As for you, brothers, do not grow weary in doing good.

14 If anyone does not obey what we say in this letter, take note of that person, and have nothing to do with him, that he may be ashamed.

15 Do not regard him as an enemy, but warn him as a brother.

This guy stands on his faith, he is not just pretending to be a follower of his faith while  shielding himself by drawing a distinction between the: “things of the world / things of God”. You can’t be salt by keeping your head in the clouds upon this earth!

God’s Police Force

Lightship for Christ

Published on Jan 9, 2019

Being castigated from a fellowship by people who think they are superior in their walk with the Lord to you is nothing new. The more critical they are about others, normally sets in motion you walking on thin ice! It is just a matter of time till you are imprisoned by their viewpoints. There is no difference in church people, or people of the world in being critical of others, except that it causes deeper wounds.

Rejected of Men

My Testimonial in PDF: Rejected of Men


Page 1.


I have been walking with the Lord for over 40 years, my Mom was a Bible teacher, my Dad a Deacon.

That in and of itself means little, however I was well-informed about the pitfalls of false teachings, and relativism having crept into the faith by the 1970’s. In the 1980’s on the streets of Honolulu, my spirit within me could sense the presence of the false gospel of scientology being put forth in recruiting troubled souls to their following. A couple of sailors I knew were sucked into this cult by the threatening prognosis that they were suicidal. This is of course manipulative, and dependent on self-preservation and fear.

In the 1980’s after my time in the Coast Guard, I studied for six years under a minister holding a D.D., Th.D., and Ph.D. In phycology. More important however is that the man actually walked with Jesus Christ in faith, and had overcome many obstacles in his life with miraculous results! I experienced much spiritual opposition early on in my life, but later while in street ministry Dr. Gross, the top exorcist in Baltimore City explained much of what had occurred to me. Learning the spirituals things of God, how he operated in his disciples, and demonic oppositions to the pure truth of God was commonplace! At that time, I was worried about my career like many young men; but the Lord showed me a devotional which read: “We are to be “Vessels of Light for Christ”… Frustrated I said, “I know that” and went to bed. Yet the next morning I received a phone call from the Captain of the Lightship Chesapeake, in offering a position to work for him! And this was truly a “Vessel of Light”!

I left the ministry later and the Lightship, and become an Army Reserve “Marine Machinery Technician”. During all this time, I had never realized just how “Rock Solid” my relationship with Jesus Christ had become. I became very lonely in my walk, and having visited many churches by now, it only seemed to compound my loneliness as I had become used to a very personal relationship with other believer’s, with a depth of understanding which still surpasses most seminary trained ministers.

It wasn’t until my late 30’s that the Lord had provided me with a wife, amongst all the fornication concerning others in the world at this time. Despite all my training, I had failed to realize that “sex was marriage” in the eyes of God, so he needed to teach me just how corrupt our “free love” society had become. I had even experienced demonic battles with the enemy, the likes I hadn’t experienced since working in street ministry!

I now lived in a rural area, and it was far and in-between finding an actual soldier in the Lord who knew how to fight such opposition of the devil. And I was about to experience the closest walk with the Lord which I had ever known! I kept a type of personal log book at that time, in an effort to keep myself on the “straight and narrow” path with the Lord as to not become emotionally overwhelmed. I had not had many girlfriends, and the ones which I had, I found to be tricky and manipulative! This was all written down in an effort to cover my hind parts, should things become tricky.

Yet as things progressed, my entries became the greatest testimonial of the Lord at work in my life which I had ever experienced! Every few days I had experienced miraculous events done with perfect timing which only the Lord could have orchestrated! These events were so personal and exacting that it actually scared me in how supernaturally all things were working for good in my life, along with the women I would be married to. I can remember the Lord actually asking me if I wanted this women which he had provided me. In all humility, I was stunned by the question, and answered with a resounding yes!


Page 2.


We were married in 1998 after about a year of dating, yet the events which transpired during that time were choked full of God orchestrated events which would cement our relationship for a lifetime! We had been led to join the Presbyterian Church of America, while meeting in a school building for a couple of years, and were the first married within the new congregation. The Lord was still moving in my life in miraculous ways personally, but when I shared many events with the Pastor he was a bit skeptical of the calling which the Lord had been showing me, while walking in the spirit of truth. About a year later, the Lord reinforced his leading with a spiritual vision of a “technicolor” heart full of rich green grass beating within me! The next morning on a Truth for Life broadcast, Pastor Alistair Begg explained that the word Pastor, was derived from the word Pasture, and that it was only God who gives a man a “Pastor’s Heart”… So now the vision the night before made sense to my mind.

By 2001, Elaine and I had sold our homes and moved to Stevensville, which was a much closer commute to my job. Then came the 9-11 attacks on our country, and my Reserve unit was the first to be called up in Baltimore, to be sent in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, and Iraqi Freedom. It was particular hard on Elaine and I because although Elaine was close to retirement, and had been mobilized before, she was now wanted again for a second mobilization making it that much harder on both of our families, and our home. Elaine was an outstanding soldier and administrator, and it seemed as if others were being retired early who had less time in grade.

This only goes to prove to me, that it is the strength of character and performance which is most cherished by the Armed Forces in a time of need. Just filling the ranks with substandard type people will never replace the need for good soldiers!

Yet again, the Lord blessed us with Elaine’s retirement at that time, despite the resistance of her command; but they knew she had well-earned her retirement and finally granted it, perhaps out of our hardship. Amongst my other duties, we orchestrated the family support role in my unit. The soldiers were thrilled that by Christmas the world hadn’t forgotten them! Although we only had some cards, cold cuts and some covered dishes, it made a world of difference to soldiers, many who were away from home for the first time.

My time in the service was nearly over once I returned home from Ft. Bragg, even though I had no idea of the next trail that was to be given to us.

Although I could have gotten out of my mobilization because of administrative error with the Stevedore outfit I had joined, I made the Army cut me new orders under Operation Enduring Freedom in hopes of making rank while on active duty. This did not happen, so I decided to go back into the unit which I worked for as a technician.

No later than the second day which I had transferred back into my old unit, I was undertaking our annual water survival training at Ft. Meade, MD. It was about noon that I took off my tight-fitting floatation suite, and I felt weak, and if I had severe heartburn. I was smart enough to mention it to the Commander, and they immediately had me lay down poolside.

An Ocean Going Tug commander, CWO 4 Gunport (another brother in the Lord) had called in the Ft. Meade Paramedics and the NSA Police.


Page 3.


It seemed that no sooner had I laid down then the black uniformed police were taking my information, and the Paramedics had arrived just in time to set up their defibrillator, while I was going into cardiac arrest! Everything went black, and yet I felt Jesus pressing shoulder to shoulder against me, and could see him in a ghostly figure lying next to me in a robe, beard and shoulder length hair!

I regained consciousness, and was transported to the hospital. I remember we got stuck in traffic from the hospital I had requested, and had to change the route to Laurel Hospital, so That I could be airlifted to Washington Hospital (Cardiac Center) which saved my life. On the way, I can remember wanting to see outside, and the next thing I knew I was looking down upon my ambulance in spirit! The clarity of mind and vision was perfect, as if I could know anything I wanted to know, yet I pleaded with the Lord to spare my life for my wife’s sake, and so I could complete my mission on earth!

I was not expected to survive the night, being that my heart had stopped about a half-dozen times, and I was told they had to forcefully remove Elaine from my Intensive Care room, as she attempted to hide behind the door.

In a couple of days I woke up, seeing my elderly parents at my feet, my brother and wife beside me! It was good to be alive, and at which point I started sharing my experience. They were perplexed by what I had told them, and asked how I saw outside my ambulance? My mind immediately defaulted to the natural, and I said I must have seen it by looking out the back window, into a bugeye mirror along the highway.

But, that was impossible as no windows were in my ambulance, and I was looking at it from the above front! It seems the natural mind will always default back to reasoning despite the fact it has seen something of the spiritual world, hence the natural mind tends to reject things it can make no sense of.

A couple of weeks later in the hospital my emergency stent in the proximal lad again attracted a clot, they rushed me down to surgery again which terrified Elaine, and had me thinking I had reached the end of the line. I insisted the nurse tell my wife that she was the best thing which ever happened to me! But the nurse spoke softly and said not to worry, I would be OK. Yet I still insisted until the nurse spoke back to me a private prayer from weeks before; she said, “Mr. Dell, the enemy knows who you are, but this will not stop what God has planned for you”! I was completely stunned by this, as I had prayed to be effective for the Lord like the Apostle Paul and Silas in the Bible, and not just a pew warmer in church, as these men were known by Satan by their effectiveness by the enemy.

Satan knew who Jesus, Paul, and Silas were; yet with most believers’ Satan had no idea about them, as they were of no, or little effect in the spirit world in opposing him. This was the prayer the nurse had unknowingly answered for me, while speaking in the Holy Spirit of the Lord! Allot of my spiritual concerns about myself were answered during this great time of trail in my life, along with a greater insight of my importance to the Lord; (although I never have understood why) but what I do understand is, none of it has to do with my natural abilities whatsoever!


Page 4.


By now our Church had been constructed, and people I had never seen before started flocking in. It almost seems to me that the bigger the Church got, the more men started to focus on building something for Jesus, rather than just listening to him in obedience.

When I finally returned to my home church, a fellow deacon and veteran I knew approached me in the parking lot with amazement, it seems the congregation was told I was in critical condition and not expected to survive the night. So this brother was stunned and relieved to see me! The Sermon that Sunday was about the Good Shepherd lying down with the lamb; as the Pastor spoke these words, I had a flashback to “the being” lying next to me in death, it was indeed Jesus the “Good Shepherd” confirmed to me by an anointing by the Holy Spirit, like a bucket of water being poured over me!

I started realizing that our church functioned much more like as business than a fellowship, personal testimonials (especially powerful ones) were not to be shared with the congregation, as it seemed this might take away from the leadership, or even elevate those whom they did not want elevated in status! This type of social behavior reminded me more of High School than it did of a fellowship of believers, and I started to become angry in how certain peoples were marginalized while only the most popular were promoted, despite outstanding performance and service. The bringing in of moneys was often focused upon in the building funds, and although I donated a substantial amount, it never seemed to be enough for all the plans being orchestrated from the top down. Even the Elders course became more regimented upon chapter and verse, than the one I had far surpassed in experience, towards helping others walk in the Lord. It almost seemed to me that Satan was continually sticking his fingers in my eyes.

I remember finally sharing my “Pastoral Vision” about the heart of grass I had seen within me a year after our marriage with the founding Pastor, directly afterwards our leadership classes. When he opened his mouth in response to me, the Holy Spirit came upon me like a great waterfall, in which I could not hear a word that he was saying, and I had to lock my knees to keep from falling over I remember! It appears the Lord did not want me to receive his response to me, probably because it would have helped to destroy my faith in my Lord. I was never allowed to share my near death experience with the congregation, and this really angered me, although my “Shoulder to Shoulder with Christ” (which I shared with the Pastor afterwards) appeared as a tagline in the church newsletter.

I then stopped my attendance, and worked towards getting accredited on the things which I had learned, predominantly from Dr. Gross, in the 1980’s. I finally got accredited in counseling by a Baptist seminary on December 6, 2006, because of my experience while working in street ministry, and studies under Dr. Gross for 6 years. Although I am a poor book academic, I also went on to write a thesis for ordination into a conservative Episcopal Church in America, yet the U.S. Bishop would not accept the terms of falling in with Roman Catholicism. I had even been offered a place with the Orthodox by a Bishop I knew, but then the Lord appeared again to me, opposite my computer room. I could feel the presence of the Holy Spirit, and “dimly” see Christ’s presence in the room, but this time he was in color, instead of the ghostly white image I had seen in death. I had found Dr. Gross’s phone number in a local directory after 20 years, so I gave him a call explaining what had happened to me. He said: “don’t you see Roland, it is Jesus telling you to simply follow him”!


Page 5.


A little later I would start Skyping with Justin Hughes in England (AKA – Lucas Labrador on YouTube), and I would grow to understand the difference in the Spirit of an antichrist (the established Church) spoken about in Revelations 17-18 and quickly start growing in my understanding of the false church and real brethren. The difference was that of an Arminian Minister, who believes in election, in contrast with a Calvinist Minister who believes a Saint is “locked into Christ” after conversion. I was so thrilled to find another spirit filled brother I had prayed for, yet sadly seven years later I would be nearly devastated by him, while getting sick with an infection to my heart’s hardware, which I had gotten in the Military hospital over a decade before.

I was then told that I was being “Chastened of God” for loving America (the world) more than the Lord!

I think this is because I am a lover of history, and the western values which were so cherished in this nation’s past. I was disgusted by the Platform of Romans Chapter 1, which now seemed to be promoted by Barack Obama, and the Democratic Party. When President Trump got elected a wedge would start to form between me and another young brother in Ireland, who had nothing but contempt for Donald Trump, and saw him as a plant by the Catholic Church and Illuminati within the United States. I had attempted to correct this brother’s misunderstanding of history and conspiracy theories by sharing accredited links, and speaking with him: but immediately after the U.S. Elections he promptly cut off all forms of communication with me. I had pleaded with the teaching Elder to intervene, but he would not.

I have since discovered that these two men actually pride themselves in being cut off from others whom they find distasteful, and simply mark them and avoid them as broad roaders from the Lord, and false brethren. In one of my greatest trials for my life, I then was discarded as being “chastened of God” for turning back in my “love for the world”, politically speaking.

I now realize that I had never before been a member of such an exclusive and judgmental group, who could simply justify themselves in discarding others and all in the name of Christ, and who had become distasteful to their spiritual proclivities!

That was simply breathtaking to me after 7 years of daily fellowship, and this speaks volumes about the potential self-delusions possible in people, despite how well read one is within the scriptures!

Now at 60 years of age, and escaping death many times, I need to rethink my being critical of others, especially those brethren who seek to work out their salvation with fear and trembling, while seeking a peace in the world that is only found in Christ! I really wish I could write for people all the miraculous events which have transpired in my life, but my testimonial would then be a book, and I’m sure I could not remember everything pertinent to put into words, so I have rather stayed with the basics.

Lucifer is GOD : Pope Francis

Lucifer is GOD declared by Pope Francis

I don’t speak Latin, but I know Rev 17-18 speaks about the “Mother of Harlots” (a Harlot is an Antichrist or an unfaithful Bride) as in 1 John 2:18-19.

This “Chief-antichrist” introduces Satan or “Lucifer” (that Wicked) to the world, who performs many signs and wonders, and then world accepts him as God. These 7 rivers, hills, and so forth, have to be Rome! So, I am not at all surprised this is being announced so “that wicked – the man of sin”, can be revealed and worshiped as God.


1 John 2:18–19  Who Are the Antichrist?


I have posted before that I believe we are close to seeing “the god of this world appear” and introduced by the false Church… If these latin words really do signify Lucifer as God, we are right on the threshold of Satan’s short reign on earth, who will be destroyed 2 Thessalonians 2: 8 > And then shall “that Wicked be revealed”, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Of course this post is a few years old, but brethren have been waiting millenniums to see this day, and I am no different..!

My people perish for lack of knowledge…

Hosea 4:6 (KJV) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me!


Wake up oh sleeper… Ephesians 5:14, (KJV) “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.”

So you don’t think worldly knowledge is important? One’s education of history, and specifically western civilization is of grave importance to understand: should our children perish for lack of knowledge, and critical thinking, in that we must all recognize human depravity, and a need for a Savior!

When I worked in street ministry Dr. Gross (holding a Phd in phycology) gave us all a test to see how much we learned was factual ( based on history) and what was fictional  in rewritten “social studies” and even high school english. I was surprised to learn that much of what I had been taught was false information, and this was in the 1980’s! Humanism was the new curriculum, which started after WW2 and imported from Europe, as the United States then had a teacher shortage at the time. From that time forward the educational system has been built on the foundation of Humanism (which was ruled by the Supreme Court as a religion) ; yet is anti-God, and now is widely known as Cultural Marxism today. One of the tactics taught by Marxists, was in convincing Christians that it is wrong to be involved in “worldly politics” in an effort to push their most ungodly and anti western ideals on a free people.

It is tragic that some Christians will assert that we only need listen to the Lord, while denying the need for truthful dialog, specifically geared towards our children in this age of great delusion! How selfish it is to become complacent in one’s belief system, simply because you refuse to be involved in the great “politically motivated” delusions taught to our children in an age of delusion which screams out for reason and truth, rather than rhetoric!

Below is a video well worth watching: explaining why historical and even political dialog: is critical for a believer in Jesus Christ!

Don’t become complacent in butt curling up in a corner with your Bible, while the whole of humanity desperately needs truth and light to be taught and understood, and not kept under a bushel basket!

Experienced 2 Corinthians 5: 6-8

Published on Dec 14, 2018

I finally found a man who lived over 200 years before I was born; whose writings confirm exactly what I experienced, called : True Saints, when Absent from the Body, Are Present with the Lord… In Explaining 2 Corinthians 5: 6-8


My condensed footnotes of the below points:
 Point 1) Dwelling with Christ (as within the same home).
 Point 2) Not to wait for it till the resurrection… signified to the Philippians 1: 22-23 
 Point 3) “Rather” is used as (“more pleasing” as the word properly signifies) to be with the Lord than to continue here…
 Point 4) Constant light support and comfort in the midst of all…
 Point 5) The souls of the saints, when they leave their bodies at death, go to be with Christ.

 


True Saints, when Absent from the Body,

Are Present with the Lord. 

by Jonathan Edwards 

(1703-1758)

I. They go to dwell in the same blessed abode with the glorified human nature of Christ. 

  • 1. The great future privilege, which the apostle hoped for; that of being present with Christ. The words, in the original, properly signify dwelling with Christ, as in the same country or city, or making a home with Christ.

II. The souls of true saints, when they leave their bodies at death, go to be with Christ, as they go to dwell in the immediate, full and constant sight or view of him.

  • 2. When the apostle looked for this privilege, viz., when he should be absent from the body. Not to wait for it till the resurrection, when soul and body should be united again. He signifies the same thing in his epistle to the Philippians, chap. i. 22, 23: “But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labor. Yet what I shall choose, I wot not. For I am in a strait between two; having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ.”

III. The souls of true saints, when absent from the body go to be with Jesus Christ, as they are brought into a most perfect conformity to and union with him. 

  • 3. The value the apostle set on this privilege. It was such, that for the sake of it, he chose to be absent from the body. He was willing rather, or (as the word properly signifies) it were more pleasing to him, to part with the present life, and all its enjoyments, and be possessed of this great benefit, than to continue here.

IV. Departed souls of saints are with Christ, as they enjoy a glorious and immediate intercourse and converse with him.

  • 4. The present benefit, which the apostle had by his faith and hope of this future privilege, and of his great value for it, viz., that hence he received courage, assurance, and constancy of mind, agreeable to the proper import of the word that is rendered, we are confident. The apostle is now giving a reason of that fortitude and immovable stability of mind, with which he went through those extreme labors, hardships and dangers, which he mentions in this discourse; so that, in the midst of all, he did not faint, was not discouraged, but had constant light, and inward support, strength, and comfort in the midst of all: agreeable to the 10th verse of the foregoing chapter, “For which cause, we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.” And the same is expressed more particularly in the 8th, 9th, and 10th verses, of that chapter: “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; always bearing about in the body, the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.” And in the next chapter, verses 4-10: “In all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in watching’s, in fasting’s, by pureness, by knowledge, by long-suffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.” .

V. The souls of the saints, when they leave their bodies at death, go to be with Christ, as they are received to a glorious fellowship with Christ in his blessedness.

  • 5. As the wife is received to a joint possession of her husband’s estate, and as the wife of a prince partakes with him in his princely possessions and honors; so the church, the spouse of Christ, when the marriage comes, and she is received to dwell with him in heaven, shall partake with him in his glory. When Christ rose from the dead, and took possession of eternal life; this was not as a private person, but as the public head of all his redeemed people. He took possession of it for them, as well as for himself; and “they are quickened together with him, and raised up together.” And so when he ascended into heaven, and was exalted to great glory there, this also was as a public person. He took possession of heaven, not only for himself, but his people, as their forerunner and head, that they might ascend also, “and sit together in heavenly places with him,” Eph. ii. 5, 6. “Christ writes upon them his new name,” Rev. iii. 12; i.e., he makes them partakers of his own glory and exaltation in heaven. His new name is that new honor and glory that the Father invested him with, when he set him on his own right hand. As a prince, when he advances any one to new dignity in his kingdom, gives him a new title. Christ and his saints shall be glorified together, Rom. viii. 17.

The saints in heaven have communion, or a joint participation with Christ in his glory and blessedness in heaven, in the following respects more especially…

Come Easy Come Hard

Published on Dec 16, 2018

Too much finger pointing about 1 John 2:15 is a destructive thing to do to brethren! There are those who use their spirituality in justifying themselves, while at the same time condemn others who may have disagreements with their perceptions. This type of behavior is based in the ego of the soul, rather than the human spirit, which only the Lord is equipped to judge.

Job’s Counselors ?

Up until the autumn of 2018, I had never met a man who claims to be a most devout follower of Jesus Christ, yet cannot admit he can (still) make misjudgments and mistakes; especially when concerning others. Until I met a man who is so devout to the Lord with his walk and beliefs, that he thinks nearly every step he takes is guided by the Holy Spirit: (except for glitches in the flesh) and therefore is incapable of being wrong – or especially wrong spirited!

This is sadly based on  idiosyncratic beliefs, and perhaps is rooted in “self-love” (which we all are guilty of to some degree) yet he uses his perceptions of following Jesus Christ, while in the condemnation of others: whom he believes have never been saved, or have even departed the Lord for “things of the world” (while hiding himself in the cleft of Jesus) – yet to “misjudge” others walks in this manner is very sad indeed!

Even upon my trying to reason with this beloved brother, he merely quoted (partial) scriptures, yet could not see his own fallibility of his judgments. I love the man, so this has been a particularly painful lesson for me, especially as I am most sensitive of my walk in the Lord. Yet I was nearly “disowned” when I got deadly sick, and told I was being “chastened of God” for a 13 year infection which had been growing in my heart’s wiring since originally installed by the military, after suffering my near death experience in the Army in 2005 – with Christ alongside of me! The device was very difficult to remove safely, yet I needed it done. The Lord provided me with the inventor of laser surgery in the heart, so even in this trail and suffering, I was most blessed!

I had even suffered a most terrible reaction to an intravenous antibiotic given me which caused a condition known as “Redman” causing my skin to itch and blister, which reminded me of Job in the Bible! Yet unlike Job, I have a wife who slept in a chair next to me while I suffered in anguish of a terrible burning and itching unlike I had never experienced before, yet it encompassed my entire body. I tried to keep myself quiet but must have failed, as I remember my dear wife sobbing by my side. I thank the Lord he has chosen to give me such a devoted and loving wife, who assists me in my faith, perhaps even more than I give her credit for!

I am cognitive of the fact that my suffering pales in comparison to some others suffering: as a  guy in my Army unit, who’s fuel truck hit an I.E.D.  and exploded burning his entire body – yet hanging him in a “jell bag” at a burn center, until he eventually expired over a year later! That kind of suffering is unimaginable to me!

Yet beyond physical suffering, the world suffers from emotional and mental suffering of all sorts and degrees, which is beyond the pale of most people’s understanding. In all of this, we also have the “human spirit” at an even deeper level, and wounding that can take years to heal – if it is healed at all! So I believe beyond the carnal sufferings in the world, it is even more grievous to me to mount attacks on one’s spirit, (whom the Lord alone is in control of) and yet men have the audacity to judge another as lesser than themselves, and their associates as often times being better than another.

Unbelievably, even men who have years in ministry in using the name of the Lord, can still be stiff-necked enough to deny others the grace which they have been shown! I now realize even in my zeal for following Jesus Christ, how unbelievably fallible I have been with others, particularly those who have hurt me; and I have asked forgiveness for it, realizing I make mistakes and miserably will misjudge others all the time, even when I don’t realize it!

As fallible humanity we must never convince ourselves we are without the ability to sin, make errors in judgment, and certainly never go ahead and apply it wrongly in another believer’s life! Rather if we are actual followers of the Lord, we should look for him in others, and in all situations which he has allowed in our lives.

We must continually have a humble and contrite heart within us, in order we “don’t miss” the Lord’s workings and healings within another. Even a verse like: 1 John 3:6 (KJV) Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him

One can twist this verse to say that they no longer sin (who have been born again); yet what it actually says is Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: (Known as WALKING IN THE SPIRIT ) and this is totally true, yet a constant abiding in Christ Jesus is required; and even the greatest of the Apostles fell short this mark (because of their fallen flesh “Romans 7:17”) and thus needing forgiveness by the grace of the Lord throughout their lives, until they finished the race set before them.

Additionally, (the wicked) “those who cannot help but sin”, (who have never seen him nor known him) cannot help themselves, as sin is their nature…  Does one beat a dog for being a dog, or does one have compassion?  So how much more should we have compassion for a brother who stumbles and falls during the trials of life?  Also, are we worse than a heathen (wicked) for not attending to the needs of our family? Are we without compassion for others? If so, we deny the very grace continually shown to us and that is the root of hypocrisy for a believer to practice dear brother.

1 John 4 is used to identify the Holy Spirit from counterfeit spirits, as to not be deceived by false teachers and others claiming to be of God. It was never intended to be used as a “soap box”  to aggrandize ourselves to others, or to cast aspersions devoid of any truth.  So rather than looking at 1 John 4 in a negative sense while searching for counterfeits, it is much more productive that we should identify whom the Lord is moving within; in all the situations which he has engineered within our lives.

Dear Lord, never again might I get so heady as to reckon myself above another….

Of Self…

In an effort to be transparent about “myself”, (a fallible human being) I’m earnestly struggling to express what I can see in the Spirit of Truth, in using the name of the Lord. I believe that most brethren lose friends nowadays; not because they are following Jesus, but rather because of selfishness. Jesus predicted these things would happen in the end:

Matthew 24:9-12 (KJV) 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.


Romans 2: 1 (KJV)
1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.

TEST the SPIRITS

Often another verse which is “overused” by well intentioned, yet erroneous brethren…


1 John 4 (KJV) 4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

Cross Reference… The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is a biblical term that sums up nine attributes of a person or community living in accord with the Holy Spirit, according to chapter 5 of the Epistle to the Galatians: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”[2] The fruit is contrasted with the works of the flesh which immediately precede it in this chapter.

Empty Vessel

I have always discovered that when the Lord has actually used me, is when I am running on empty!


A common mistake made by often the most devout believers is often the wrongful judging of others spiritual walk, simply because we all are fallible in having our own insights. Here are a few verses I’ve taken from Romans to help explain what I mean…

Romans 2: 1
1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
Romans 3:10
10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one
Romans 4: 7-8
7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.  (Whom he has chosen to do a work within “by Grace”).

Holy Day Tree?

Published on Dec 1, 2018

1 Timothy 2:5 (KJV) : 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

How can one call their (Christian) faith Holy, when it is a mixture of pagan practices..? Christmas was introduced in the U.S. as late as the 19th century.   Ask any coin collector about Constantine still striking out Roman coins to the God of Mithra, even until he died!


Jeremiah 10 (KJV) : 10 Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: 2 Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
