Our Plea to all those who preach/teach the Bible.

Most of you are admired for your dedication to The Word. You study the Bible, you work in it for hours. Your heart and mind is full of Scriptures. But what about those who place their trust in you to help them? How can they spend hours in the Word or Bible? Many who sit in your churches every Sunday are feeling like they are wasting their time. They hear the same thing year after year. They pay tithes, and receive nothing in return. I do believe that is why many are leaving the churches, they feel useless. You do all the work, get all the blessings and they suffer and feel empty.

They need something to do. They need a new way to stay in The Word, even while they work to feed their family. They are under tremendous pressure these days. We all know we need more faith. So we need to understand what is faith, what is that faith that has carried America this far and made her the greatest nation on earth? The Word of God, our Bible, our faith, our God. If they need more faith, why not give it to them?

We are aware we cannot carry the Bible with us everywhere we go, at least not how it is right now. But what if we simply cut and pasted a few Scriptures in smaller print so they can be folded and bound and then wore, say around the neck. Small enough to wear under their shirt, yeah, an amulet, or something like it.

Ok you are right, there is no law saying we have to do that, but hey, there isn’t any saying we can’t either. In fact I have a few arguments that might prove it can be good for us. In fact it could be a great work and a great benefit to those who decide to give it a go. Israel was commanded to do something like it. So if God told them to do it, He can’t go too hard on us if we copy the idea.

It would give many in the church things to do, to make the amulets. Some to cut and paste, then print Scriptures. Some to bind them etc.

How many times have you been reading the Bible and a Scripture popped out at you, like it belonged to you? I know I have had it happen a lot. It is like God is wanting to give you something to cling to, to carry you through the day. Well what if they could cling to it and carry always, as a gift from God?

Let me give you some examples:

For instance if they need a Doctrine, give them Jesus’ by giving them the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:3-7:27). What better doctrine could you give them?

They Speak to us, and will lead us as it is written in Proverbs 6:20-23.

Only talk is a vain thing as seen in, surprise, surprise, Proverbs 14:23

The print might be so small as to be unreadable, but they are still effective. After all, germs cannot be seen, yet they can kill. The Word, no matter the size, still offers life.

If some one needed a song in their heart, or some wisdom, better to give it to them from God, than any thing else we could offer.

God said He would write His law upon our hearts (Jeremiah 31:33). Work out your own salvation (Philippians 2:12). We can make us a new heart and put a new spirit in it as written in Ezekiel 18:31. Jesus said His words are spirit and they are life(John 6:63). You can give them the very spirit of Jesus. Or maybe we could use even the Constitution, it too is a new spirit, the very spirit of America, and He does tell us not to forsake the law of our mother (Proverbs 6:20-23). There is so much we could do. We don’t have to be all talk, or sit in pews. We could hold or cling to those things we hold dear. Some things we need to keep close to our skin, so to speak.

If you will notice none of my examples come from the Law. You are right, there is no Law in love. But if you love Him, you would keep His commandments. The two you are always emphasizing, the greatest commandment (Mark 12:29-31), and the new commandment (John 13:34) He gave us.

Spread the Word is a command given to everyone who believes. How else can it be spread if one does not preach or sing? This would allow even the laymen to spread the Word, thereby keeping His charge.

This is only an idea that might help America. If you have a better one, let me know.

COME ON, HELP ME SPREAD THE WORD.

May God go with us all.

Choices

Choices, we make them daily. Some days we make several. There are some who try to just float through life, but really by doing so, they are making their decisions on the choices they face. Like they say, not to vote is to vote.

Today we face a dog eat dog world. It is getting mean out there. Seems that trouble finds you if you just try to go about ignoring those decisions and zombie your day through. And as you read this, it only gets worse, our homes aren’t safe. There is no safe place anymore.

I do realize that to talk about God is taboo now a days but one must admit God tried, it is we who have failed. What was God thinking when He gave mankind dominion over the earth? I mean think about this, a place we can do whatever we want. A place we can tear down, or build up. We can do whatever we want, at least that is most people’s attitude. We don’t have to worry about what God thinks, what others do, we can just do whatever. Ain’t that what we all want?

God showed us what good is through His Son, God told us what good is through His Word, but who needs Him? We got our own life to live. And so goes the days of our lives. In whom most live in fear.

Our government can’t help, not even the churches can. No union, no company, no school, no amount of money, nothing known to man can help. But it isn’t all lost, there is One who could. One who loves us, who has our best interests in mind. One who is willing, One who is able, but that One is taboo.

One would think that Jesus came to conquer our enemy (God) for us instead of uniting us to Him. Here I shall ask all those who still have a brain, that the zombies haven’t feasted upon, to put on their thinking caps.

Those who claim that we can do whatever we want are right. God did give us the earth as our dominion to do whatever we want. Those who claim that God’s law hung on the cross are right as well. Now is when you need to think, so all those without a brain can stop here. For the rest of you, think, what did hang on that cross? There was a sign that the king had made and Jesus, the sign that God made. And yes, Jesus died there. So God’s Word (sign/law) is dead, but most forget that He is risen and offered only to those who ask for Him. When one asks, God places Him in their heart. You know that part where God said “I will write my law upon their heart.” The rest can go about in zombie land.

Once Jesus is placed in us, then it is up to us to work out that salvation. To bring forth fruit. To allow that fire to engulf us, consume us. Then and only then, are we “saved.” Only when He is in us, and we are in Him. So are you saved? Probably not!

Just as the government is corrupted, schools, banking etc., so are your churches. And it don’t matter which church you belong to. They are all lying. Or one could say they tell you only half truths. They don’t tell you who Jesus is, how to get in Him, what God wills for every one of us. They have become one in bed with your enemy.

They tell you Jesus died for you, but they don’t tell you who or what Jesus is. They don’t teach you how to get in Him to be truly saved. When we read in Psalm 40:7, Jesus is telling us that He is coming, then He tells us how: “in the volume of the book it is written of me.” That would be your Bible. So He is in our Bible and we must find Him while we can. So it isn’t as easy as going to your local church to find Him, we must search for Him. But we have that witness in our hearts so we aren’t totally lost.

Plus John gives us another hint in John 1:1 and another in 1 John 1:1. But Jesus Himself tells us plainer than any one has ever tried. He will come out and tell you in Exodus 20 That He is Lord and then gives Himself to you. God, later in the Old Testament will tell you how to apply The Word for maximum advantage.

Ok, the Old Testament is old, yet so is the New Testament. In fact our Constitution is only a little over two hundred years old and they say that is too old. So let’s hope age has nothing to do with the way God works. I mean He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, is He not?

We are told that God gave Moses His ways. So if we want to know how God would handle things, isn’t it Moses we would go to? We are also told that God spoke through His prophets so if we were smart, if God had something to say to them, couldn’t we use that same advice?

Even your preachers tell you to do what God says and ignore man. If we would all do that we would fair much better. But I guess one would have to know God to do that. So let me introduce to you who my God is. We all have gods, so don’t look at me like that.

My God is the King James Bible because I see that The King James Bible is The Word of God given us to lead and guide us through this life. It is not a god that I made or carved. It was one given me by my Father. They can knock the King James all they want, but in the end we will see who fairs best. So since The King James is my God, I do what I understand of it. All of it. I do not cut it in half, or thirds, but keep all I can from the wisdom written.

The Word was with God and The Word was God. It is we who found other gods and demoted God’s Word. If we want it as it was in the beginning. Or on earth as it is in heaven, then we must raise God’s Word to the proper authority in life. We seem to work with the ripple effect, not from top down. If you work from top down, you would be doing what the government tells you, obeying their laws, doing things their way. Making the government your god. It was the government who set themselves up placing their ways, their laws over you, yet they are above it. You can’t touch them, but they can destroy you and your children and your grand children. As long as you continue to vote them in, they continue their wickedness until your life is no longer worth living. If you don’t take yourself out, they will do it for you, give them just a little longer. Remember the highest form of worship is obedience.

Maybe it is time for us all to figure out just who our God is. Can you show someone your God? Most just fight against the air. They don’t really have anything other than air. All talk.

In the Old Testament Jesus revels Himself as Lord, in the New He reveals Himself to us as Saviour, being all we need, everything we need, therefore being God. God is one who provides us with all our needs, both physical and spiritual. Jesus fits that so He is my God.

Okay, for those who are only slightly brain dead and who hasn’t been able to follow me, try doing one thing. If you love Jesus take the commandments of Jesus found in Luke 10:27 and keep them even as Jesus kept His Father’s commandments, John 15:10 as in retain possession of them at all times. We are told how He did it in the Old Testament, Deuteronomy 6:8 and Deuteronomy 11:18. Yep we wear them regardless what your preachers tell you, simply do what Jesus says. He will take you through a journey that will reveal to you who He is. It is fun and confusing all at the same time. And yes, I am aware that He is not the author of confusion but if we had of went and done what He said in the first place, most of the confusion would have been avoided. But we didn’t so we have the process of unlearning and relearning everything. Turning our world right side up. When you are done, then there is hope, peace and all the things we have searched for.

Wrap your self, your loved ones, your friends in the commandments of Jesus. Start your journey, letting Him teach you the way. Learn to keep all that is good and grow in The Word as The Word grows in you. And may God go with you all.

For those who are happy the way you are, content with the world you have to offer your children, then none of this applies to you. I do not care who you chose as your god, even if it is yourself. I really don’t care what you have to say about mine. So live what you teach and let us live our own lives, the way we choose, that gift God gave us all. We make our own minds, making our own decisions, choosing our own paths. For me and my house we shall follow Jesus and walk the law as He did. Because I know, He can teach us the way, because He has been there, done that and owns the t-shirt.
