Stiff Necked

Oswald Chambers teaches on his April 7th devotional the following quote…

As the disciples were commanded, you should also say nothing until the Son of Man has risen in you— until the life of the risen Christ so dominates you that you truly understand what He taught while here on earth. When you grow and develop the right condition inwardly, the words Jesus spoke become so clear that you are amazed you did not grasp them before. In fact, you were not able to understand them before because you had not yet developed the proper spiritual condition to deal with them.

Our Lord doesn’t hide these things from us, but we are not prepared to receive them until we are in the right condition in our spiritual life. Jesus said, “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now” (John 16:12). We must have a oneness with His risen life before we are prepared to bear any particular truth from Him. Do we really know anything about the indwelling of the risen life of Jesus? The evidence that we do is that His Word is becoming understandable to us. God cannot reveal anything to us if we don’t have His Spirit. And our own unyielding and headstrong opinions will effectively prevent God from revealing anything to us. But our insensible thinking will end immediately once His resurrection life has its way with us.

“…tell no one….” But so many people do tell what they saw on the Mount of Transfiguration— their mountaintop experience. They have seen a vision and they testify to it, but there is no connection between what they say and how they live. Their lives don’t add up because the Son of Man has not yet risen in them. How long will it be before His resurrection life is formed and evident in you and in me?


It is headstrong and hypocritical to say that; others use the Bible to teach what they want, yet you yourself do the very same thing! (Romans 2:1-5)

How tragic to think that you are so spiritually spot on in your understanding, that you simply discard the discernment of others who have tried to share with you.

It is frustrating and almost laughable when we see a Bible study leader who “thinks” that they are so “very exclusively sanctified” in Christ; that no one else can move their heart towards seeing God move, beyond anything bigger than their own Cognitive Dissonance!

This is not Spirituality at all, but simply stubbornness and bull headed when even the closest of brethren are powerless to help, until one repents from such a comfortable yet prideful position of the mind, the one who is so blinded in their own conceits!  (Proverbs 26:12), (Romans 12:16)

Completed in Christ

 

The Great Seporation

The above Graphic has been changed as the idea that Sheol, Hades, (the place of death or sleep) known as Abraham’s Bosom – for the Old Testament Saints no longer exists today as for waiting for the Savior *Messiah and Redeemer. As He Has Risen from the Dead; Jesus Christ 3 days and nights after his Crucifixion on the Cross of Calvary. He descended to the “Bowls of the Earth” then ascended to the right hand of the Father. Not only was Christ resurrection witnessed on that day, but all the Old Testament Saints were resurrected as well!

Isaiah speaks about Hell being “expanded” to receive the masses of people who were not saved from sin.

It is likely that Hell now included Hades, and the great chasm which separated the Old Testament Saints in Paradise. 

The idea that Hades still exists as a receptacle for those who died without Christ, and that Hell is for the “Broad Roader” (who once came to a Saving faith, then leaves their Salvation in Christ) is unbiblical, and simply cannot be supported by scriptural texts when taken in the context of both the Old or New Testaments.

Poor understanding of the scriptures often results in a “customization of them”, in support of a particular doctrine. To me this is Heretical to hold and to teach such doctrines *with the full knowledge of scriptural texts which invalidates such doctrines, and therefore deceives many.

Personally, I have found that anything which detracts from the Lord Jesus Christ, his burial and resurrection from the dead as the Son of the Living God (God Man) and ascension into heaven at the right hand of the Father, is a dangerous president to preach against the totality of the completed work of Christ done on the cross.

Faith or Fear

Does this sound like Paul thinks that God’s Grace is being on the Broad Road?
2 Corinthians 12:9
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Building a Following

Confident, convincing, speak well? You would make a great politician, salesman, or even a Cult leader, if you are good at twisting the truth to win people over towards your way of thinking! Only the demagoguery of Lordship Salvation, would call the grace of God a doctrine of the broad road! The Bible warns about such people, so you mustn’t be lazy in checking out the contexts and content of what’s being said!


This is by no means my best video, as I am upset someone would use a Global Pandemic like an opportunist to spotlight themselves while pushing heresies in using the scriptures.

The 7 Judgments (link)

Missionary Evangelist Robert Breaker talks about the Seven Judgments in the Bible.


Out of all the teachings we may hear today, I believe this basic understanding is MOST needed to walk as son’s and daughters of God.

Missionary Evangelist Robert Breaker looks at the Old Testament Tabernacle, and then speaks about the Tabernacle in heaven, as well as the coming new one to be built by the Jews.


@ 24 & 26 Minutes in Brother Breaker explains how we have nothing to do with our salvation, as it has ALL been completed in Christ!

Hearing our Lord

I’m not talking about wearing “tin-foil hats” ; but by walking in faith!
(Romans 1:20)
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”.

What must I do to be Saved??

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and THOU SHALT BE SAVED


Yes, that’s the Truth, Lordship Salvation is a proud and terrible thing; I should have known better from my earlier teachings to get involved with them! Such people actually love themselves and their understanding more than our Lord, simply because of pride.

Understanding Fear

The fear of COVID 19 seems to have stopped cold many in their tracks, but our “earthly security is but an illusion” unless we understand the greater good at work among us! I attempt to explain just how we might get paralyzed with fear, and the actual position we find ourselves in.

It’s a good thing that I don’t make my videos to receive a thumbs up! Plato said: “No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth” … And Plato did not even know Jesus Christ! Yet it is the fallen human condition which Plato recognized.

Eye of the Needle

Contexts is very important within the scriptures; I list the 7 Covenants in the Bible and try to explain that each build upon each other, as man moves forward with the Lord. * The age of Grace (we are in) is the most important to understand as to not to get confuse in how our Lord “currently deals” with humanity for the sake of what Christ has done; and not ourselves!

Radical Rut

The most heart wrenching thing to me was in making high marks as an Elder, yet only to be rejected by the Church. I have struggled long and hard to be of service to the Lord, but in all this time “the establishment” seems to dismiss or even marginalize the things of God, learned at the basal or radical level. Perhaps I have missed something, in moving in spiritual power; but for the life of me I don’t know what it is, or what else I can do?

Perspective

All of those who have been indwelt by the Holy Ghost and sealed for the day of redemption need to understand that NO man is saved of their own efforts, while being sanctified in Christ – by Grace (alone).

Anyone who condemns their brother or sister in whom the Lord has started a work within, also condemns the Holy Spirit’s work of Christ within others.

Satan is the only one in the scriptures who is called “the accuser of the brethren” so it is important we understand NOT to be taken in by such teachings!

No Comparison

We all tend to compare ourselves with others to some degree, if our standard is Christ (to the believer) we must always examine our hearts foremost when making a judgment call concerning others.
This is of particular importance to the follower of Christ, as we are all called to be ambassadors in representing his name. I have found that I have to be particularly careful to not stain my “uniform” with my own selfrightouseness!

(I’ve dedicated this video cover to my first friend I made on K.I.)

Lamb, Lent, Passover

I unquestionably believe that being partakers with Christ’s blood atonement on the cross is the only way in which we are made acceptable to the Lord. The whole of the Gospel depends upon the shedding of blood for the remission of sin. If men make religious ceremonies which detract from this life-giving truth, they have perhaps even unknowingly, taken away from the truth of the “Lamb who was slain” in our behalves. In this video I “hyper focus” upon the blood of Christ at the atonement, and wonder why anyone would detract from the Lamb’s blood which was shed for us?



The Passover lamb was the sacrifice given at the temple for sins of the jews for that year. Since the temple was destroyed, the jew is no longer permitted to eat lamb at passover.
Lent and Passover have many similarities in recognizing our sin struggle and new birth by the atonement in what Christ has done for us as the lamb of God on the cross; which we celebrate at Easter.
To me, although most would disagree; it seems that eating of Fish on good friday, in observance of Christ hanging on the cross; would be akin to not partaking in the feast of the Lamb: who is Christ, much like the Jew will not partake in eating lamb (any longer at Passover) as they will not recognise the heavenly tabernacle now seated with the blood of Christ on the bemis seat!?
Is not eating lamb, but fish on Fridays actually symbolizing or rejecting the atonement of Christ in action? Even Holy Communion while partaking symbolically in the body and blood of Christ, in remembrance of him; was Christ’s own commandment to his disciples. So, to the contrary would be the sustaining from red meat in which the Roman Catholic tradition insist upon!
Is it just me, or do these other religious traditions deny Christ’s atonement on the cross? And if so, I would submit to the listener that remorse for sin can never be forgiven without the spiritual partaking of receiving the blood and body of the Lamb. The Sanctimonious actions of having remorse for our sins; achieves nothing without partaking in the act of forgiveness by the blood of the lamb!
And although Passover and Lent are religious ceremonies conducted in order to honor our Lord, they are but worthless without taking the blood and body unto ourselves. To me, that is a Satanic twist which purposely misses the point of the cross.

“The System”

The Holy Spirit within me, can be very sensitive at certain times in identifying error, and especially ungodliness within the world. This is not to say that I don’t have my faults; just that I can identify carnality from the spirituality as spoken of in the scriptures.

The Dirty City

“Nice middle class Christians” don’t like to engage themselves with the world, nor even hear anything which might rattle their faith! I don’t believe Jesus wishes us to succumb to our comfort zones, but rather to grow and be able to engage the enemy, should we meet him! In this video, I speak about one of the ways I learned this lesson…
A succubus demon: they appear as beautiful seductive women that prey on mankind and strike if the opportunity presents itself. … HE can shape change into a cat, fox, dog or wolf

Cognitive Dissonance

Cognitive Dissonance or Gobbledygook … Do we really Seek the Lord in all things? Do we go to Him when we don’t understand his way in our lives? Or are we content within our own conceits, biases, concepts, and dogmas? Most people will choose the ladder, and it takes great humility to seek the Lord, so that he can show us his greater will in our lives, and understanding by faith. This issue here is our hearts, and not just our understanding between our ears, Amen?

Being Deceived [link]

http://www.wickedshepherds.com/   

Who are the people trying to deceive if possible, even the elect?

Who are the ones who seek to “deceive the many?” 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? For sure, we know
that there are many of them. Jesus tells us so. He not only tells us so, but He also
identifies them for us!
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.”
Jesus singles out their marks as to who these MANY people are:
1) they will/or have prophesied (taught the Bible; preached sermons) in His name
2) drove out many demons in His name
3) have done many wonderful works in His name
Also, something similar in Matthew 24:5: “For MANY shall be coming in My name,
saying, I am the Christ and shall be deceiving MANY.”

A letter of simple faith…

I’m by no means a professional writer, in fact I grew up with severe dyslexia having trouble in school, but one thing I have learned is that the Lord has always been with me!

I had returned from Ft. Bragg under my volunteer orders for Operation Enduring Freedom (2003-2004). I had hoped to gain promotion as a Platoon Sergeant (E-7) and Stevedore from that of a harder MOS as a Marine Engineer, which I worked in daily as a dual status technician on Army Watercraft. This was not to be, and I didn’t like the idea of being subservient to a soldier who made little effort when it came down to tending to her troops, once missing my promotion when returning home. So, I went back into the watercraft unit in which I worked full time for, as I figured it was allot nicer than going to the desert as a truck driver, which the Army pushed me to train for after leading a truck platoon on active duty. Yet I worried about returning to the grueling task of once again attempting to get my next level engineering license, taking months in school – a large amount of which I already knew, as I had spent time at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy; but the Army TC had refused our much needed course materials!  I had struggled with engineering academics since my time in the Coast Guard, yet felt gifted in my practical knowledge in some of  which a Warrant Officer that was the head of maintenance, had tried to get me awarded earlier in my career.

On February 6th, 2005, was now off leave and had joined my old unit for their annual water survival training at Ft. Meade, Md. I think I had donned a floatation suite for the training which was a bit small for me that day, and even though the NCO’s weren’t required to do so, I thought it only appropriate to partake in the full level of training since my absence and return. At noon on that day, I finally removed the neoprene suit, only to experience what I thought was severe heartburn and ask to lie down for just a few moments from my Commander. Immediately CW4 Gunport called 911, and the paramedics my brother had worked with showed up on seen, and none to soon, as just when they had hooked me up, my heart completely stopped, and I sank into a void of darkness!

I suppose this was the “first stage” of death, but as I lay on my back in that void of darkness and loneliness, I immediately felt the presence of a man pressing (R) shoulder to shoulder against me! As I looked over I could make out a ghostly figure of a man in a robe, shoulder length hair and a beard! It was Jesus Christ, and there was no place I could go in which I was separated from him, alleluia! Without Christ, it would have been the loneliest experience which I had ever experienced! As the Paramedics defibrillated my heart, it was as if a manhole cover was slid open from above me, I could see the men working on me as I seemed to emerge from the abyss!

Later as they continued to defibrillate my heart enroot to the hospital, I can remember wishing I could see where I was, yet no windows were in the ambulance. All the sudden, I was looking down upon my own ambulance in perfect clarity of mind and vision! I prayed hard to the Lord not to take me yet, as I worried about my wife, and having not completed my earthly mission in my ascension. The Lord answered my prayer, and the next thing I can remember was in being loaded into the medivac helicopter for air lift before passing out!

A Footnote: I had worked around helicopters before and had hoped I would finally get a flight which I could remember; but I guess I’m just being silly. Also, it was three days after my Ordination credentials were received, and it was a big hit for the men at work – as they roared with laughter! This was also near to my twenty years of military service too.

When I arrived at Washington Hospital Center for emergency stenting, I woke up ever so briefly to see my wife in the ICU unit beside me, and I told her to hide in the corner. I didn’t wake up again until three days later. I was not expected to survive the night I learned later, and the staff discovered Elaine, forcing her to leave the ICU.

As I finally awoke the first thing, I saw was my Mother and Father at the foot of my bed watching me, and I’m sure with plenty of prayers. My Brother the PA at the Naval Hospital sat beside me. My twin sister flew in from Texas and her son, later my friends, Sergeant Majors and Army Officers came in to visit. Later after two weeks my stent started to clog up again in my proximal LAD, and they rushed me down to the operating room again. The Wife and I were sure this was it this time, when a nurse spoke to me calmly and exclaimed to me “Mr. Dell, the Enemy knows who you are, but this will not affect the things which the Lord has planned for you!” …. I was stunned as I had never seen this nurse before, yet she had repeated back to me a private prayer I had prayed weeks before about being like Paul, Silos, and Jesus!

Within a day after I awoke, I received a phone call that said I was no longer insured under TRICARE, as I had been off active duty for more than a year! That started a long campaign with me and other service members in securing military medical treatment for not only line of duty injuries and sickness like myself but including combat wounded reservists as well! I can remember the late Astronaut Chuck Brady, telling me that Abraham Lincoln would have turned over in his grave if he had known veterans didn’t receive the care they had earned! With the help of the late Senator John McCain, my case along with many others, went all the way up to the Pentagon and TRICARE Reserve select was later passed into law.

This was an election year, and soon afterwards my Military Medical Board started feeling the pressure in completing my case file, which had grown to the size of a phone book! The poor NCO who decided to work my case (when others wouldn’t) got reprimanded from the command responsible for handling my case. It was tragic; the poor Soldier who made it as easy as he could on us, got in trouble for the technicality of not having us present everyday of administrative turmoil! But as they say shit rolls downhill, and the poor man got relieved from a very hard position and job!

Three weeks later after returning to Church, the sermon was on the Good Shepherd lying down with the lamb; it was as if the Holy Spirit dumped over me like a bucket of water, and I then knew in faith that the Good Shepherd was lying down with me the day my heart stopped!

13 years later my hearts hardware to my implantable defibrillator had grown “vegetation” or infection right into the chamber of my heart. It was a major emergency which only my device nurse became alarmed about when pointing out a pink spot right below the “can” located at the top of my left chest. Immediately Elaine and I rushed to the hospital again in Baltimore, in not having enough time to even pack our belongings! The University of Maryland made test after tests, and scans after scan while debating back and forth what they should do, or in my case, not do! If that wasn’t grueling enough, I developed an allergic reaction to the strong antibiotic fluid being pumped into me. I had developed “Red Man’s” on every square inch of my body, which felt like rolling around in a field full of mosquitoes!

Elaine stayed with me many nights, but I could not help but groan being so uncomfortable. I had also left a fellowship which had accused me of being “Chastened of God” for following politics too much (a love for the world, as they saw it). Let me tell you, the last thing one needs to hear in such misery is a bunch of self-righteous Job’s Comforters during such a trail of life!

I would like to interject at this point, that my devise nurse also was in a church much like this and had to leave, and her political views were not really on par with mine, yet we were good friends for the love of Christ in our lives; and she ended up doing medical missionary work overseas, and told me the supplies always managed to reach her on time! We must be careful in how we view others walks in the Lord!

It was strange this time around in the hospital in fearing for my life, the only experience I had was in the catherization lab, they had put on some canned music and half dazed the song started playing “Knock, knock ,knocking on heavens door, by Bob Dylan – a man who once denounced his faith in Christ. The staff then scrambled to turn it off, as tears started running down my face. I was a one-time cowboy shooter at the range at that time!

At the end of that week, I was encouraged by a doctor with a thick German accent to arrange surgery at Johns Hopkins, with the man who invented laser surgery to the heart, Dr Love. The morning I was slated to leave (so that I wouldn’t have to be on suppression therapy the rest of my life), I saw a familiar sight outside my window, it was the small company truck my dad was with, and I worked for also making a delivery to the Hospital! To me, that was just the medicine which I needed to lift my spirit up!

Many times, within our lives it is the little personal things which our Lord knows about us, and not the grandiose spectacular things which the world sees as important! Knowing Jesus Christ is one of the most personal things we can experience, and that’s why we shouldn’t cast our little pearls before swine who will turn and render us with them! Often, people don’t want to see or hear these testimonials of hope, as they love the darkness, rather than the light, a testament to the fall of mankind from grace.

One thing which I have learned in growing in my faith, is that one’s experiences may go from spectacular to diminished, but it does not mean the Lord has left us, (or we have left the Lord) rather like a child the Father needn’t to have to hold us as close, as we grow into spiritual maturity.

I could write much, much, more about what I have learned of the Lord, myself, and others – but I could never stop in my testimonials. Yet the Principle of this letter is that we must live by faith, and in doing so we come to a deeper understanding of just how faithful the Lord is to us, if we simply take the time to rest and reflect upon him.

It has been 15 years since my career ending heart attack in the U.S. Army, but Praise God I have more time to write about Him now!

Struggle in the Flesh

Jesus IS Redemption, the Hope of Glory!
Without Him, we can do nothing!



With all due respect to my Armenian brethren, but for the love of the Gospel I believe that the accuser of the brethren (Satan) stumbles many committed followers of Jesus Christ with the insistence of walking away from the Lord into Apostasy, then being condemned to hell as they can never return to Christ!

This doctrine I believe, is the single most destructive doctrine ever contrived to stumble and retard the true believers growth in our Lord’s Sanctification of the body by grace causing more focus upon ourselves and our shortcomings, and less focus upon Jesus Christ’s completed work on the cross in the believer’s behalf.

Jesus Christ’s faithfulness to us “His Bride” is never ending, and is not dependent upon our works in the flesh, but rather dependent upon our “faithfulness” or FAITH IN HIM, rather than putting any faith in ourselves which will always fall short in walking in Holiness!

The “unmerited favor” given to us freely by grace, is without repentance throughout our lives. We may fall short of our calling, but our Bridegroom cannot! He is our Redeemer, Savior, and Justification not just for a season, but rather for eternity for all who are contrite enough to realize, that apart from Christ, we have no hope to overcome sin within our naturally born corrupted flesh.

It is evident to me, that Christ being born in the “likeness” of sinful flesh, and yet without sin, was the reason he was born to die on a cross in our behalves, simply for the fact that no man can keep the law, in which humanity will be judged for on the day of reckoning!

Without Christ’s atoning blood on the “Mercy Seat” which is our permanent eternal redemption for all who have confessed his name before the Father, none of us have any hope in ever being able to obtain Salvation! This blood atonement in our behalves is what is seen by the Father in our sins, and all flesh and fleshly works are but filthy rags, only fit to be burnt!

Therefore, all true disciples of Jesus Christ are promised to receive a new “glorified body”, as no earthly (corrupted) flesh or blood are allowed in the Kingdom of Heaven! These glorified bodies are given to us after death of our flesh; as our Soul’s and Human Spirits have already been made complete within the Sanctification process by faith; in which the Lord promised to complete in us for the day of Christ Jesus, and not of ourselves that any man should boast!

Follow the Lord Oneself!

As, Christ will never leave us nor forsake us! A dear brother I knew once told me NOT to follow a “prescriptive religion” about Christ, but rather Christ himself. Absolutely correct, yet we must be aware that oftentimes our perceptions of who Christ is to us, and the workings of the Holy Spirit within us, are understood in the light of scripture, instead of just our “perceptions” as we grow.

Without Excuse

Without Excuse: I take to task just how easy it is today in learning sound doctrines from the Bible.
I normally don’t like to have and go into examining scriptures, and I do prefer the King James – yet oftentimes it is much easier to get others to understand the proper contexts (and easier for me to read) in using the ASV or ESV in quickly pointing out error, rather than breaking down the old English. I have found that with these verses, there is no conflict in meaning.

There is a possibility that Revelation 3:5 is speaking about those who will not take the “Mark of the Beast”, after Christ returns for (Rapture) of the Church (Ekklisia) – His Bride, as taught within pre-millennialism eschatology. But in no way would the scripture support those who are saved by faith “now”, at the end of the present “Church” age.
