2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
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?
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)
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.
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.
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!
Sermon for Sunday, October 9, 2016. This is the 106th sermon preached in English on http://www.thecloudchurch.org. It was preached by Pastor/Missionary Evangelist Robert Breaker, who shows the difference between Hell and the Lake of Fire.
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.
I’m not talking about wearing “tin-foil hats” ; but by walking in faith!
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”.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and THOU SHALT BE SAVED
a James Jaeger Film SYNOPSIS: Globalists in the Power Elite — working through the United Nations — are waging war against property rights, gun rights and capitalism in order to usher in a Marxist World Order. This war is known as “Agenda 21.” Considered a “conspiracy theory” by the Mainstream Media and other apologists of globalization, the flagship term for Agenda 21 — “sustainable development” — crops up in thousands of federal, state and local government laws, regulations, policies and documents. So is Agenda 21 really just a “theory”? The UN says “sustainable development” is simply the “Environmental Movement” reconfiguring the planet into a safe, green world. Others maintain it’s the forced inventory and control of all land, water, minerals, plants, animals, building projects and human beings on the planet. In other words, a blueprint for what many fear could morph into a totalitarian World Government. So what’s the real agenda behind Agenda 21?

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.
The pollens now out, and I’m dealing with my Sinusitis – oh, what I would give to be a smooth talker!
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!
The only things our beliefs ultimately effect are our environment and our spiritual destination!
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!
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!

Trump-Tribulation? Is based on my understanding of history and the development of industrialized cultures. Without the ability to harvest fossil fuels for heat engines, metal production, and electricity the industrial revolution would have never taken place, and even the discoveries in modern medicine would never have occurred. The Lord God made all things in which man has developed, and this was no accident to the modern age which we have enjoyed. Unfortunately, Humanism wishes to be the dominating philosophy within the postmodern world and has “dethroned” the idea of using the Bible and a righteous God, so that politically motivated Communism might overcome this “religion” of truth – with a lie, leading humanity ever closer to the final trumpet.
The whole basis of understanding today, is completely different since before the Renaissance period in the 15th Century. Humanism has now nearly completely replaced the understanding of fallen humanity, and the Lord God’s provision for sin. In my estimation, history has disproved any ideal of men evolving, or governing themselves successfully without the acknowledgment of God; and need for His forgiveness to a fallen world.
Allow me to give a quick overview of what was once understood by Western Cultures in the world, and why it is important to have Nation States, law enforcement and Armies.
Based upon the Bible, which was once the largest selling book in the world; man understood that humanity was inherently wicked, because of the fall from grace in the garden of Eden.
The world is a sin cursed place, along with fallen humanity. Governments (some better than others) were given by the Lord, so that we might have some assemblance of order, and so that anarchy would be curtailed.
An assemblance of an authority structuring has always been necessary to keep the peace, for without it man and the world would disintegrate into chaos!
Godly leadership is based upon servitude to people; as in putting the welfare of others above oneself. This is what makes a good leader, and not a selfish, greedy, or power-hungry representative.
The humanistic teachings of evolution, which was embraced by Karl Marx in the 19th Century has overrun our education systems globally; and now the “theory of evolution” is embraced as fact.
Marx understood that the best way to overthrow the idea of a righteous God, was to teach there is no God, and that man is supreme. This also creates a false premise which teaches that mankind is evolving and becoming more and more competent to rule the earth in goodness.
This is all “the big lie” from the Father of lies – the Devil. It is my opinion that one of the reasons the Bible speaks of wars and rumors of wars, is because of a global power grab in just who will play God!
There will be no peace until the prince of peace returns to judge the living and the dead.
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.
I never realized just how significant and far reaching so called, “Trump derangement syndrome” really is; and it reaches far beyond the United States, even into some’s spiritual life!

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.
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?
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.”

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.
