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)

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

Screaming Creation!

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

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.”

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.

Strength and Weakness

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.

Disabled

Like little children, we are powerless, handicapped and disabled to enter in with Christ within our human (or natural) abilities.
Rather, we are totally dependent in faith on the love grace and mercy of our heavenly Father, who provided his Son Jesus in our behalves!
Without Salvation by Grace alone in what Christ has done, we are powerless to enter into the kingdom of heaven by simple childlike faith. This is why many will be gathered up and cast into the fire to be burnt, as they had not believed upon the only name which we might be saved; Jesus Christ.

Liberty in Christ!

 

You have heard it said that “one man’s cult is another man’s religion”… This is only true to the natural mind; however, the Bible teaches in Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
Our relationship with the Lord is key, as in Psalm 37:4 “Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”. This is not “necessarily” speaking about fleshly desires of the heart, rather it is speaking about being shown the infinite mercy, love, and truth in being grounded in the Lord, and sometimes in receiving what we desire.
This is a spiritual condition which only the Lord can show us, (often in doctrines) and is not found in the futility of our natural understanding.

Discerning of Spirits

Proper understanding of the Holy Spirit’s attributes; is the critical part of being able to “discern the spirits” accurately. Without understanding the Holy Spirits attributes correctly – as given to us within scriptures, we have handicapped our discernment.

Jesus said: The greatest of all the Commandments is to love God first, then others as yourself. This is the first step in discerning the Holy Spirit from false teachings about the Holy Spirit. This first commandment covers a multitude of other commandments, to include the proper discernment when dealing with others.

I struggle to make this point in my video, we must have a balanced understanding of who the Lord is, and how the Holy Spirit functions. If we are ignorant of this proper relationship between men and God, we are at a much greater risk of being deceived by a “silver tongued Devil” which deceives many!


Below I have pasted some verses in helping others understanding with the identifying attributes of the Holy Spirit.

First Fruits

In this video, I’m attempting to contrast the “Fruits of the Holy Spirit” with our natural tendencies, in missing key factors when making proper judgments concerning others. We must be careful we haven’t overlooked our own fallibility when identifying the Holy Spirit within others.
Galatians 5:22-23 with Hebrews 12:15

Linear Thinking

THERE IS NO CONFUSION IN CHRIST!

Allot of people get very upset if you challenge their faith, (and I do too) but what is more important is the truth which is only found in the person of Jesus Christ. I have always gone to Jesus to teach me greater truths, and unlike theology; what Christ shows us stays with you always!

In this video I attempt to explain the difference in man showing you something, and the Lord showing you! It will always be scriptural; but true understanding is always spiritual; thus tying together other parts of the scriptures and creating greater understanding!
