Are You a Hypocrite?

If you have seen the news much at all in the last few days, you have seen the very people preaching acceptance of a decision that you don’t like, protesting a decision that they don’t like. It seems like God might be trying to show us something.

Could it be that what God is showing us by using the immigrants, both illegal and those who don’t wish to assimilate, and the protesters, is that Christians themselves are hypocrites, as well as ignorant. You see, many Christians want those who come to their native countries to learn their ways and abide by their laws. Yet, they want, and expect, to enter God and Jesus’ Kingdom, and never change. They refuse to abide by Their Law or learn Their ways. Isn’t that the definition of a hypocrite? Or is it more like stupidity? Maybe both?

If you have a job that wants to transfer you and yours to another nation, would you want to learn that nation’s ways as not to offend them? And maybe, you would learn their laws so you could stay out of jail? Have we forgotten the old proverb “when in Rome do as the Romans”?

Do you really thing our Father will allow those who refuse His Ways as well as refuse His Laws, into His Kingdom? I think not. If you think He will, you might do well to think again!

God gave Israel His Laws, we call them The Ten Commandments and they are found in Exodus 20. He also gave Moses His Ways. One would do well to learn and practice His Laws and Ways, if you are wanting to dwell in His Kingdom. You may not get it right, but at least you will know more than you do, and your effort will show God that you are looking forward to dwelling in His perfect paradise.

He gave us both His Laws and His ways, just in case there is anyone alive today who wants to live with Him. I’m one, how about you? At least we will show Him, however clumsy we might be, that we are His children!

Spread the Word, America

As we all know, God’s ways are different and better than ours. If we want God to help us then we have to figure out how to get His attention. We are getting desperate, our nation, our freedom, our faith is being sorely tried. Will we make it? Can we do it? Will you rise to the occasion?

The Christian clergy is asking us to pray, vote, and to get involved. Good advice, only with them in the same boat as we are, still doing things the way they were taught by men, are they the ones we should be seeking our advice?

Let’s take prayer. There is verbal prayer, silent prayer, written prayer, prayer in song, and many other ways. Does God prefer one over the other? Is there a time for them all, plus the ones maybe we haven’t noticed or heard of yet?

And then voting. This can go in many directions, so let say the only time God asked us to agree to anything is to accept Jesus. To declare Jesus our Lord Jesus Christ. He did that by telling us to agree or accept His Word. In fact that is all He ever asked of anyone, all the way back to Israel. As Solomon declared, the whole duty of men is to keep the Commandments.

If you have read much on this site you will know we see our Lord Jesus Christ as the whole Bible. Lord, is the Old Testament, Jesus is the Son of God (Gospels), and then the Christ is the Epistles. The Whole Bible sums up how we are to worship God (Old Testament) and how to get along with one another (New Testament).

God goes on to teach us to trim the light by which we walk. So we can take the Bible and trim it down to the Ten Commandments. As well we can take our Constitution and trim it. Thereby keeping the Commandments and forgetting not the law of our mother.

So to vote the way God would acknowledge would be to do as it is written in His Word and bind and wear the Ten Commandments, declaring Jesus is our King.

And then get involved. That is done in many ways. Pick one. If you can’t preach, sing, then print it. Do something to put the Spirit of our Father and our Country back in America. As they remove all that is good, we simply put it everywhere. Privately!

Bind them and place them upon you, yours, your home, your gates. They can be hidden anywhere, everywhere.

We all know God’s ways are different, so when we are told we need to do something, seek God’s way in doing so.

Again we have been warned to arm ourselves. That Christians have become the targets of the world’s hate and anger. So how do we arm ourselves? With everything we can. God gave us armour, we just have to learn to use it. That is done by putting on His Word. To get in Jesus, the Ten Commandments. As well our Founding Fathers told us to arm ourselves. They gave us guns. So do both if possible. Darkness is approaching. Don’t leave anyone unarmed. Be sure and cover every one in Jesus and let all who will buy a gun.

Above all, ask God His advice on everything. Then use His counsel.

Let’s join together and arm everyone, pray for our nation, and may God go with us all. Amen.

Jesus is The Spoken Word, He is The Written Word and He is The Word of God, made flesh. His words are spirit and they are life. Spread The Word!

Are We to be Rich or Poor?

In the world we are hearing contradictions over whether a Christian should live poor, or if it is ok to be rich with money and possessions.

Most of us have priorities in our lives. The things most important to us, that is where our time, money, everything goes. So of course all we have to do to see what is important in one’s life, that is where they will spend their time, money etcetera on. One raising a family will probably invest in their children.

When something is important, real important to someone, they will tend to it with their all. So judge it for yourself. Should a Christian live rich? I would say, as far as most laymen, sure, most are busy bringing up their children. But for those proclaiming the gospel, no. They shouldn’t be preaching it and not doing what they preach. Only when one matures to the point of spreading the gospel, love, peace, joy etc. should one invest in it.

Spreading the Gospel is more important than anything in this world. But one doesn’t need a massive building and multitudes of programs to do so. Isn’t the Gospel, the same as The Word? Or even the Bible. So it doesn’t matter if they spread it with their mouth as in preaching, singing or if they buy Bibles to spread, or even one Scripture at a time, or a widow’s mite. They should invest their all in the effort to spread The Word and caring for our neighbors.

May God go with us all.
