Our Bible, a History Book?

It has been said that the Bible is just a history book. That might be correct. But by receiving the Bible we can see why, what, when, and where things went wrong, as well as who was to blame. We can look upon that Book and see things that we can change. Like they say, hindsight is 20/20.

So, do we just believe it is all over, done away with, absolutely out of our hands? Or do we realize history repeats itself? By reading and learning the Bible, we can infer the ending, whether it’s of allowing our humanity to overcome us, or by accepting God’s wisdom and help.

Revelations shows us no real ending. That’s because, like many things, that ending is a reflection of our beliefs. The end is up to our actions, beliefs, and the very talent given us to change human nature.

Do we interpret the Bible literally or spiritually? How about we take it according to our understanding? Would that be such a bad idea? Every word normally has more than one definition. So, if we just understand it according to our own personal levels, we all would probably have answers that we can all discuss. It is called a debate, where you state where you are, another brings up what they know and understand, then we get to compare what we know to what went wrong, by whom, where, why etc..

Church shouldn’t be lectures without a following debate or discussion. We aren’t in a hierarchy in the Body of Christ. There isn’t a head honcho to listen to other than God Almighty. Picture a family reading the Bible. There are several points found: a dad’s view, mom’s, children, and when they are finished, they discuss what they got from those Scriptures. At least that’s what would happen in an ideal setting. That is, however, what a good church should be. Family discovering the views of each member in order to discover the truth of the Scriptures. Men’s, women’s and children’s point of view. All should be heard because any one of them can shed more light on what you think you know. As the Apostles wrote, ‘iron sharpens iron’.

How and why did Israel fall, or how, why, when did the Christians’ fail? We can ask God and search the Scriptures for our answers. Most of all, what did God do when His people failed Him? And what can we expect if we continue on the path this world is going?

We don’t have to go through the Tribulation. We don’t have to let evil overtake us. We just have to learn and look upon the Scriptures with a 20/20 vision. Life can and will be great when we begin to seek one another’s view. There appears to be too many teachers and never enough students.

People seem to live on fear. Somehow they want tribulation, drama, etc. around. They want blood, they want anyone who isn’t like them to just go away, hoping someone else will do away with them. The hate of people, speech, ethnicities, everything seems to have something that will ‘trigger’ someone else. They don’t realize that there are different parts of the body and not all parts function in the same manner.

Think about it, we could end up in Paradise, or hell. It’s all our choice. If it is paradise that we wish to see, then dwell in the love of The Father and The Son by “keeping” the law (Ten Commandments) and testimony (Sermon on the Mount), as directed by God in Deut.6:8-9. May we all one day find Paradise.

America’s Light

So we are told that our Constitution is a living document and it is subject to change. Or, maybe we need to see it a different way. Maybe, we should see it as a light we all live by. And that light should be trimmed to shine brighter all across the land of America.

That would mean that the Constitution stands as it is. We do not change it, add to it or take from it, no more than we would our Father’s Law. But all the laws, rules and regulations created since our founding, is what should go. What was good for people a hundred years ago may not even be necessary today.

We do not break our foundation. We do not take and destroy what we have spent years building our lives on. If we do destroy that foundation–even if it seems like a little difference in opinion–, then our world will be turned upside down. That little crack in America’s foundation will cause our Great nation to fall.

Our Father counseled us to trim our light, true, but He also said to “keep” His Commandments and forsake not the law of your Mother. This means, yeah, what mankind establishes needs renewed every so often, but God gave us rules to live by and a Constitution that set us up as a free people.

If this great Nation, the only one like it, is to survive then we must stand our ground on both our Spiritual and Physical foundation. We are a people who believe in freedom, liberty and all the good stuff, and we used to have a God that prospered, kept and provided for us.

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.

Jesus keeps the custom by asking those who love Him to “keep” His Words even as He kept His Father’s. So if you obey God, and love Jesus, one would “keep” both the law (Ten Commandments) and the testimony (Sermon on the Mount) as instructed in Deut.. He wants to be in this country, but now it is up to the individual.

That God has been removed from our public property, schools, court rooms etc.. There is more private property than government. Maybe we can show Him how much we want Him by letting Him see, we know Him, and we know His voice. If we will stand for God, then He will stand for us. We defend that which we believe in. Isn’t that our God and our Country?

What will Americans choose to do? Roll with the flow, or stand their ground? That choice is yours.

One more law could be the straw that broke the camel’s back, or maybe the tail that took down the saints.

Saved By Grace?

Saved by Grace, His grace, His actions, His love. Oh so right, we are saved by grace. BUT there is more to the story. If we die, we go to heaven, whatever one believes is good with us. BUT again, what happens to those we leave behind? What about our children, grandchildren, all we know and love? What will happen to our country? Will the world overtake us? Jesus warned us not to let that happen.

The war on if one is to “keep” the law or rely on grace, is totally overdone. If one can get past themselves, their fears or even the ego, then we can accept the fact that we need help. Jesus died on that cross to save the world, not just you or me. He looked forward to what this world would face and it sadden Him.

God knows the beginning from the end. Jesus saw the end and provided us a way to also see the future. We can provide for ours the way He did for His.

We seek the wisdom, the path, the way Jesus chose, The Father’s instructions. Jesus kept The Father’s law, so should we? And what about Paul telling us we don’t need to observe the law?

God’s law is the Ten Commandments, The Father Himself spoke, wrote, and then made His Word flesh. Three times He gave us His law. We do need to “keep” it in the manner He instructs us in Deut.6:8-9. And since we do as we see our Father do, wouldn’t we also keep that part of the laws directed for the children of God to the best of our ability?

If one can seek The Father’s wisdom, and use it as such, then each of us will fulfill a part of the law according to the abilities given to each individual. We are part of the body of Jesus Christ and we, on our own, are not responsible to fulfill the law. Only fulfill the part you are able to do or what pertains to you.

God gave directions for the kings, priests, judges etc. and the children. As we grow we will find that He trains us according to His will. We find out who we are in Jesus.

Yes, grace will get you to your destination. But think ahead, is there not wisdom to help preserve, protect those who are left behind when you leave? And really, who wants to arrive to Paradise as a pauper?

As this world falls apart, and our enemies surround us, is there nothing we can do to help those who will be left after we have gone? Whose wisdom should we seek, who’s council? Mankind has not found a solution to this world’s woes, can we not seek higher wisdom?

And for those who want to trust in God: learn to “keep” the Commandments. Those who love Jesus, pass that love on as Jesus tells all who love Him to “keep” His Word (Sermon on the Mount) just as He kept His Father’s. So take the Ten Commandments, and Sermon on the Mount, and learn to grow strong in our Lord. May we all stand to see the day of our Lord as we are made aware of the ways of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Best Version

Always stick with King James in the United States. When a book is copyrighted, it is a book that has been written with the imagination/knowledge of the writer. Or maybe it is to take a story and put your twist on it, mixing what you’ve read with what you imagine. Only when one takes what they read and changes it to what they think, can they ‘copyright’ their book, in this case at least.

Most Bibles are under copyright, therefore they are not the original, but only a deceptive copy. When we are told trust no man, are we to trust their ‘word’? Why do almost all copyrighted Bibles start with the King James? They take it apart and add, or subtract what they disagree with and sell it to you as The Word of God, turning it into a fake.

Jesus told us it is free to enter into the Kingdom. If so, should we pay to obey God in Deut.6:8-9? Any Bible claiming to be God’s Word should be free to take any part of that Bible and “keep” it according to the ways of God in Deut. Be it the Ten Commandments, or Sermon on the Mount or any other Scripture God gives us. To keep that which is good. Any Bible that has a copyright makes this instruction illegal.

By using K.J. we can arm ourselves, place prayers in blankets for the homeless, or songs for the lonely etc.. We can give hope, love, peace, and all the things money can’t buy to those in need by using K.J.. God has given each nation one word; you choose which it is for you and yours.

Avoiding the Old?

It seems most people will do anything they find Jesus of the N.T. asking or showing them what to do. Yet they avoid the O.T. like the plague where the wisdom of The Father rests.

So what does Paul mean when He tells us ‘to put on Jesus’? He doesn’t tell us to pray Him on, but to PUT Him on and pray always.

In John we are told Jesus is The Word. If Jesus is a Word then we can surely do as we are told and ‘put’ Him on, if we only knew what Word Jesus is. Some declare He is the Bible. The Bible is a book that speaks of Him, but The Word we are told to put on is The Word of God.

The very Word God Himself spoke with His own breath (our Lord)). That Word God wrote with His own finger (Jesus) and The Word God made flesh (The Christ). Our Trinity.

When Paul tells us to put on the full armour of God, or to put on Jesus, it is the same thing the wisdom of God tells us in Deut.6:8-9. To preserve life, to protect our family and everything we have worked for. Remember we are told they will come to steal, kill, destroy. Our Lord Jesus Christ can and will protect all we give Him to protect.

We again were told that we are not to let the world overtake us. We are not to become like them. We are to love and wait on our Lord. We can only do that if we allow Him to protect us as we spread The Word and show others how to protect what they love and worked for.

Christians are being eliminated from all over. We must learn to make a stand and show others to do the same by trusting and obeying our God.

The armour of God is found throughout the Scriptures. The Father started by giving instructions to the children. We aren’t kings nor priests, but we are His children and our Father instructs His own children. The armour is found in the law, prophets, and N.T..

Times are getting tough and time is short. The invasion of America must be stopped and God is our only hope. Let Him fight our battles, keep evil from us and protect us from our enemies. And may we all come to trust Him and help others make their stand.

Life and death is in the tongue. Those words from the mouth of The Father (Ten Commandments) and those from The Son (Sermon on the Mount) gives us the law and testimony we are going to need to overcome the world. We know the voice of our God for they are spirit and they are life.

Go and get busy, search the Scriptures for things He wants us to wear or to do. Learn to “keep” those things you find good. Love Him by seeking His truth, love your neighbour by showing them what you have found. May His presence go with us all and all be found in His will, for the whole duty of men is to “KEEP” the Commandments.

Get in the spirit of our God.

Do we even know what that Spirit is? The word from the mouth of God and the words from the mouth of Jesus. In Deut.6:8-9 God teaches us how to get into His Son. If we would get in The Word and learn to love Jesus, we would have the law and testimony we will need to overcome the spirit of the world. Their weapons will not prevail against us if we will learn how to ‘keep’ those things we hold dear.

We can give life, getting it from the book of life, our Bibles. To “keep” The Law (Ten Commandments) and the Testimony (Sermon on the Mount) which gives life, we can overcome our enemies. Let us all learn to keep the Words of God and overcome the spirit of the world. They cannot beat the life our God gives us. Our faith in our God can overcome our enemies. May our God fight for us and help us when we show Him we are His children and we have an enemy who is stronger than us. Obey God, Love Jesus, not too hard, right??

Whose to Blame?

Let’s not group everyone together. There is good and bad in every group, party, union, race, religion, etc..

There are good ‘baby boomers’. Some payed, and ask for nothing. Some died, many died fighting for America. They taught the blessing of God, our Ten Commandments, the blessing of Jesus, The Sermon on the Mount. Some gave their children morals and goals. Their children will be able to stand in The Day of our Lord because they know responsibility.

Have you taught your children? It’s always comforting to find others to blame, try looking in the mirror. It’s not ‘baby boomers’ nor millennials, it is those who refuse the teach their children and avoid responsibility from every generation. Do our children even know the love of country? Have they been taught anything of value?

It isn’t all about work but learning to ‘keep’ that which is good. Pass to your children the blessings of God. Our Ten Commandments, our Sermon on the Mount, and the law of our Mother. Learn to “keep” as God directs His children in Deut. 6:8-9. May we stop the blame game and learn to teach our own. Maybe we all need to realize that most of society takes the easy road. There was many ‘baby boomers’ born of no choice of their own of when they were born. Maybe a chosen generation that has yet to be acknowledged for the good.

Let’s not spread hate, but teach that which is good. Blaming one another is not an answer to the problems. Are you doing what you claim the ‘baby boomers’ did? Are you passing the blessings?
