The Victor?

Many people are getting ready to ‘bug out’. They are willing to pack a bag and go for the hills, or mountains, whatever, and why would they do this?

To work all your life, to have children, a home, vehicles, some of us have so much more, just to walk away and let those who come to steal, kill, and destroy, have it all?

I ask you, who is the victor? As most of us know there is more than one way to accomplish a task. What about those who cannot ‘bug out’? Too old, too young, too broke, sick etc.. Do we leave them behind and consider them collateral damage?

Has no one considered them? What if, you are fit and can flee but your spouse isn’t well enough? Or do you have a disabled child? Are our loved ones to be considered collateral damage? I think not! There is another way.

We Americans have always said that we are one “Nation Under God”. It is on our money, on our minds, and in our soul. Our national motto is even in the fourth verse of The Star-Spangled Banner. Many Americans are Christians and we believe in Jesus. He used to be everywhere, in almost every home, schools, court houses etc.. Today, He isn’t found in public very often. Even most of the churches have removed Him. Maybe it is because not many people have found Him. Or worse, bought into a misleading statement. That the Law was done away with.

Jesus is The Word, John 1:1-5
The Word God spoke: Exodus 20:1
The Word God wrote: Deuteronomy 4:13
and The Word God made flesh John 1:14. He is our example of The Trinity.

Yes, those Ten Commandments is Jesus. When God tells us in Deut.6:8-9 to bind and wear His Word He is placing us in His Son, Jesus and His Spirit.

In the New Testament we are told about the armour of God. It talks about the Seal of God. Jesus sent us to the Old Testament in the Sermon on the Mount, to seek The Father’s will. We, being the children of God should go to the O.T. and see what our Father instructs His children.

Remember we are not kings, priests, or judges, just His children, so those are the laws we learn to keep. And so The Father places us in His Son upon obedience.

Jesus then keeps the custom by telling those who love Him to also keep His word. By doing so we “keep” both the law, Ten Commandments, and the Sermon on the Mount, having the law and testimony.

Let’s remember Jesus tells us His words are spirit and they are life. We can just put on the Spirit of God and dwell in, cling to, the Spirit, allowing the Spirit to lead the flesh. Now we have not only Jesus in us, but us in Him. We continue to learn the armour of God until we are sealed for the day of redemption.

Seal your family, home, pets anything that is yours, even your stuff. What we bind on earth is bound in heaven, it belongs to God and is safer in His Hands.

For those who know all this and is wanting more, be sure and go through both the law and prophets and then the N.T. for better understanding of the armour of God.

In the Prophets we are told to “keep” His Commandments and forsake not the law of our Mother.

If one refuses to do what the laws say, your Father or Mother’s, then they are sinners because sin is transgression of the law, both have their laws, rules etc..

So our solution is, of course, the wisdom of our Father. Just as He told us to trim our light, we cut out the laws that do not relate to us. So we cut the laws of our Father down to the Ten Commandments and any law referring to the children of God. If you don’t know who you really are, just the Commandments will do.

So now we can do the same with the laws of our Mother, America. Take the Constitution and take out anything you find not concerning you. Trim the lights by which you walk, then obey God by acknowledging Deut.6:8-9, KEEP, cling to, dwell in those laws.

We are to “keep” that which is good. One should remember that when God created the heavens, the earth, the sea and all that in them is, He declared it all good.

If one doesn’t obey God and Love Jesus, then they fail to have the law and testimony one will need for the coming days.

We don’t want to be caught lawless, but again, we don’t want all the laws laid down by politicians etc.. They make more laws daily. No one can keep up with them, so cling to only the law of your Father and Mother, those that apply to you.

Help search The Word of God for new information. Tell others what you find, get their come backs and let’s remember, action speaks louder than words. We work out of love for those we know, those we don’t, and to let our God see and hear that we are His children. We rely on His wisdom and His love for us.

Most of us work daily to support and feed our families. And now we work–not for salvation for Jesus died to save the world, that is taken care of–but to seek the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of our God. Get in Jesus, put Him on and let Him lead us into the glory of God.

Let’s stay positive, encourage one another and treat every opinion as important as our own.

Defeating the Darkness

Our God did not leave us defenseless. We are to fight the evil with good. We are to learn to keep that which is good. Our problem is we don’t know what is good, nor how to keep it.

It isn’t just the government who let down our borders. We, as a people, did it first. When we refused to fight those who removed our God from this land. They started with the children by taking God from the schools. They remove all that is good from the land. Then, we wonder why the evil is invading us. They will take whatever is left. Our children, homes and nation. When the light is put out; darkness reigns.

They have taken several countries and they don’t intend to stop. Only good will conquer evil. So, we must learn good and learn to keep it. It is as easy as to obey God and love Jesus.

The worst thing we can do, is learn the hate. We don’t want to focus on the hate. It is Jesus we need to study, to see how He tells us to walk. We are not talking about closing our eyes to what is happening in this world, but we must focus toward the light. That is the only way to sustain sanity, as well as keep us focused on the proper path.

Why we are losing this fight is because we don’t know our Lord and God. When we can see that Jesus is ‘The Word’ we can learn a lot.
Jesus is The Word God spoke upon the mount.(Holy Spirit)
He is The Word God wrote with His own finger. (Covenant)
He is The Word God made flesh. (His Son)
Jesus is our example of the Trinity. The three are One.
He is The Law that died on the cross. (He lives)
He is The Law that is written on the hearts of Christians.
It begins when we realize that God’s will shall never be ‘done away with’. And the fact God gave us His all, His spoken Word, His heart, for from the heart the mouth speaks, His mind, the written Word, His covenant. And The Word made flesh, His soul. He isn’t asking us to do anything He Himself hasn’t done.

God’s law contain laws that pertain to different fields. There are laws that God Himself takes care of. Some for the priests to fulfill, and some for the children of God etc.. We are to seek the will of God, so what law you attempt to fill is how you see yourself. Just as the American laws have laws for those who drive a car, some for the government, some for whatever it is one does. We only apply the laws according to what we do, who we are.

Jesus submitted to those God put over Him. He didn’t come as a king, nor play the role of a priest. But He did walk the walk of a child of God, showing us our own walk.

To sum it up, we are to obey God and love Jesus, our goal. So go to the O.T. and see how Jesus walked as a child of God and do likewise. And then Jesus said if we love Him keep His words even has He kept His Fathers. So ‘put on’ the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount. Let the Light of this world shine. Stay in the light and never let darkness overcome your family.

If we are the children of God, then those laws directed to the children should be observed by the children. Israel is a people, not a land. Those who have kept the law and testimony are those who will still be standing at the end of the day. It’s time to empower the people to stand against the darkness that is facing us today.

You must remember that God is the only one who can help us now. So far, America seems to be standing on her own. But that can only last so long. So, let’s get the Calvary on our side.

A Personal Lord.

There is much love in many who pray for their family, their friends and even their enemies. God wants to help. It is a decision each of us have to make.

Those that want the Christian God and want His help, He offers to preserve life Deut. 6, end of chapter. Just a few verses above preserving our life, He tells us to get in The Word. Deut. 6:8-9.

In the N.T. we see Jesus led us to The Father when He told us to seek The Father’s will. To seek first the Kingdom.

Paul talks of our armour that will protect us through the time of trouble. Jesus tells us if we love Him, then ‘keep’ His Word as He kept His Father’s. The Father gave us His Word, that Word spoken, written, and made flesh. Jesus gave us His Word too.

If we “keep” both, the Word of The Father and the Word of Jesus then we have the law and testimony, our protection and the preservation of our life in the hands of God.

Jesus tells us His words are spirit and they are life. Allow that spirit to guide and lead you into eternal life by keeping The Word. Serve your Lord with not only your heart, but your mind and soul, your all.

Jesus is a personal Lord, it all starts at home. Protect you and your family, see them through the coming days. Then spread The Word, law and testimony to all you know and love. Remember they come to steal, kill and destroy, protect it all.

Grace vs. Law

I think it best to look up the word grace in any “good” dictionary. Once you see the definition, and don’t just play ‘pick and choose,’ then take that and look at the Scripture. We are called children of God. Do children just get a free pass because Daddy did it already? We are just children and we should act like we know who we are. Children, yes, but is there a time when we see past ourselves? Will we ever grow up? For even in times of “law” there is grace. God’s grace is forever. Yet we need to understand what stage of grace we should be living in.

There is a grace given to children. Just as you don’t expect anything from your toddler. Whatever they do, they are forgiven because they don’t yet understand. This idea changes, hopefully, when the toddler becomes a child, definitely before the child becomes a teen.

Then, there is the grace given us under “law”. Where there is someone who is willing to “cosign”, pay etc.. Of course, there are still requirements for those who receive that grace.

As well we all know Jesus said “it is finished”. So we don’t have to do anything because it is all done for us? Don’t think that will go over too well in the course of life. “Hey Judge, I don’t have to keep the speed limit ’cause Daddy never broke that law.” Just don’t ask me to post your bail, or pay your fine.

Let’s face it. Sooner or later we all have to grow up. We all have to learn to see past ourselves and care for others around us. So, if you die and go to heaven, what did you leave to make the world a better place?

The Water of Biblical Baptism

Just what is Biblical Baptism? Is it, as some say, being immersed in the water of either a baptismal pool or a river? Is sprinkling of water enough to qualify? Is the water really to be water, or are we to somehow baptize each other with the Holy Spirit or both? Perhaps we should seek what God refers to as water. Be forewarned, sometimes water means, well, water.

Proverbs 18:4 The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.

Jeremiah 2:13 For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.

These scriptures shows us that The Words from a man’s mouth are waters, and what Man taught God’s ways better than anyone else before or after Him?

That’s right, it was Jesus. And shortly before His crucifixion, Jesus told us to keep His words as He kept His Father’s.

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

If we do this, then Jesus Himself baptizes us. What better baptism can we hope for our families?

For Those Who Believe in the Bible…

Protecting Your Family in the Days to Come

We tried to make this a quick study, as we know that time is a valuable commodity that many have in short supply. I know you’re probably tired of Scriptures being thrown at you, but bear with us, and read them thoroughly. So let’s get started.

Genesis 26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

The father of the faithful kept everything God gave him and we are instructed to do the same. Keeping of God’s Commandments and law runs throughout the Bible.

Deuteronomy 4:40 Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.

Deuteronomy 5:10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

He offers mercy to those who do, and it allows us to show Him we love Him.

Deuteronomy 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!

Keeping Commandments shows Him that we want our children taken care of.

Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

That would include even us.

Deuteronomy 8:11 Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:

See, forgetting God comes from not keeping the Commandments. We are not told by God to memorize His Commandments, but to wear them and to apply them to our homes.

Deuteronomy 6:8-9 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

That’s enough from the Law, let’s go into the Prophets.

Proverbs 2:6 For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

Proverbs:3:1-2 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments; for length of days, and long life, and peace shall they add to thee.

So, the Lord gives us wisdom, and we should keep the commandments in our hearts. How do we do that?

Proverbs 6:20-21 My son, keep thy father’s commandments, and forsake not the law of thy mother. Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.

Proverbs 5:7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

Keep them, be faithful to His Word for He is faithful

Psalm 121:7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

Must evil effect every family as thoroughly as death, before people will act. Obey God, He is head of America. When someone approaches us, we don’t know their intent, we don’t/can’t read their heart. God can and every Christian should protect themselves utilizing His help.

Psalm 121:8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Protect your family, your home, your belongings. Wrap everything in the words of His mouth. Remember, they come to still, kill and destroy.

Psalm 121:5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

And now for the New Testament.

Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

God gave us His written Word that we may teach them to our children. And establish them in our home.

John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

It seems like we are back to God’s advice about keeping His Commandments, and the law of thy mother. I’ll give you one hint, we call it a ‘motherland’ for a reason.

Our Trinity.
Spoken Word = Ten Commandments
Written Word = Ten Commandments
God’s Word made flesh = Jesus, the Law that hung on the cross = Ten Commandments. Can you see Holy, Holy, Holy? That “law” that hung on the cross was Jesus. That Law God wrote on your heart is Jesus.

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.

Proverbs 2:1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

Our preachers tell us to give everything to God. That would be binding His Word and applying it to everything. Your family, your home and all belongings.

Proverbs 3:24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

Deuteronomy 6:24 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.

Might I suggest you look up the word “commandments” or “words of my mouth” on http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org

May God go with you and yours to protect and keep all you hold dear.

Keeping the Commandments?

God’s prophets, our preachers, Jesus’ disciples, everyone continues to tell us to ‘keep’ the Commandments of God. Yet, only God Himself tells us how to do so in Deuteronomy. Maybe God is trying to protect us with His Word, His Spirit. Why else would He tell us to wear Them?
