How Our View Of The World Affects Learning, Knowledge And Understanding (LINK)

Happy Sunday to everyone. Once in while (on a Sunday) you can find encouraging tidbits of info (always use discernment) that can change our course, or enlighten our path towards a better direction or, ending up skipping over some would-be bad obstacles and freeing us up from an otherwise pit or wrong place. I found such info (knew this, maybe you did too) here at this link (below). Be blessed! You are carrying around someone’s miracle today……….be there. –Moraldiplomat

Excerpts:

“……………..we are finite.  We learn slowly, in bits and pieces, here a little and there a little.  We also easily forget things we once knew.  And we are sinful.  Our unbelief easily colors our thinking, even when we are thinking about God’s truth.  In short, our view of the world will never exactly be God’s … not now, and not even in eternity.  We will never have his omniscience and infinite wisdom.  And yet we must learn………………

……………Above all, it’s important to understand that Paul found no common ground with Greek philosophy here.  Even more, everything Paul said about God was entirely at odds with the with the philosophers’ basic assumptions.  And yet Paul could still point to the Stoic poets and find support in their words, if not in their underlying theology.

For even the Greek poets knew that idols were “foundational garbage” and that men were, in some sense … “the offspring of God.”  Above all, Paul’s summary of theology was sufficient to draw a sharp contrast between his understanding of the world and that of the pagan philosophers.  He created a sufficient base for a moral and intellectual conversation about repentance………….”

Let’s start the new week with a new goal and a better understanding of God and the world around us. Have a great next week! 🙂

Religion of Baal Overtaking Christianity? (LINK)

How can this be??? Answer below:   HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY! GOD BLESS– “Man! Christianity being outrun by Islam…I’da never thought it.

Christian Population Falls As Islam Becomes World’s Dominant Religion

https://www.offthegridnews.com/religion/worlds-christian-population/

 

1 Tim 4:1 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; …”

Mt 24:12 “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” WAKE UP CHRISTIANS!!

And,…the love of many is waxing cold. The false ministers (TV preachers as I call them) abroad are pulling in so many people- perverting and hindering the Gospel; they are leaving their first love thinking they are walking right. Sad man,…sad..who would have thought that one day, Christianity would NOT be a world dominating religion for all times…well, sadly, times are changing. 😐

Rev 2:4 “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.”

Baal (Today is known as allah) mentioned in the Old Testament (KJV)

1 Kings 18:40 “And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.”

1 Kings 19:18 “Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.”

1 Kings 22:53 “For he served Baal, and worshipped him, and provoked to anger the LORD God of Israel, according to all that his father had done.”

Baal mentioned in the New Testament (KJV)

Romans 11

1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying,

3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.

4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.

5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

“…..The Door To Understanding All Of Human History” (LINK)

It’s Sunday, ran across this article; I liked it. Slightly lengthy, but if you’re not between phone calls, it’s well worth the read. Below is an excerpt:

“….We live in an age of declining faith. We also live in a world where rival beliefs systems like Islam are surpassing Christianity worldwide. There are many reasons for the situation we find ourselves in today. One primary reason is that we simply don’t take our faith seriously enough to teach it as history. We really don’t consider it worthy to build our lives around.  Even Christians consider history to be limited to events like the French and Indian Wars or the Civil War.

But if we start at the center of all history and if we are to teach Jesus Christ as the door to understanding all history, we have some work ahead of us.  We need a comprehensive and searchable history that relates all human history… that’s each and every event… to the center, to Christ.  This is obviously a big project, perhaps the largest project or undertaking in the history of mankind. It will make Wikipedia look like a speck, a footnote as a way of comparison. So…

If you’re ready to start writing … I’m looking for help.”

Ya know, it’s ok to say the name “Jesus Christ” We are not ashamed of His name! “Amen” or or “oh me” If you can’t say amen, say oh me.. I’ve seen and heard this name heal, raise the dead and cast our what appeared to be demonic possession (crazy person, epileptic). So, there is definite power in This name.

The Kingdom is Within YOU!

I’m changing things up today (don’t worry, I will still post awesome links and vids) after all, this began as “…of the story.” Stories with a meaning; and I have a story for you today- let’s not forget today is Sunday. A lot of people like to think about God today, (we should do it everyday) or we think about those who are thinking about God. Maybe we wonder if He is still involved in mankind’s workings. I can assure you He is. He’s working on you this very moment!

Back in Old Testament days, God dealt with man a little differently than He does today. There was a different covenant that He had with man, and in short; God was reaching out to man (2 Chron 16:9), and He still is. However, not all men (and women) were reaching out to Him. So, He sent His Son (Mt 21:37) in the likeness (literally human) of mankind. And from the time He came till well after He left (temporarily) He would now draw all men to Himself (Jn 12:32). We (many people) are what has been called, “God chasers.”

Ok, without further ado……..here’s that story. Thanks to James B. of Canada for the structuring

The Kingdom of God is Where?

There are several Scriptural proofs showing that the Kingdom of God is right here, right now! While there is the Kingdom of Heaven (where God also dwells) the Kingdom God (spiritually) spoken of, “is within us.” John the Baptist (Mt. 3:2) stated, “And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” That meant it was a nearly now (then) thing to occur shortly.

Jesus preached the same message (Mt. 4:17); and in the book of Acts; God’s Kingdom was a primary theme in the apostles’ preaching as well (Acts 28:23,31). Entrance into the Kingdom is by the new birth (a soul and spiritual change in the hearts of men, something we cannot do ourselves).

Salvation is freely offered by grace through faith in the accomplishments of Jesus on earth, and more importantly, the debt, our debt, that was stopping that spiritual change; that debt, Jesus paid for with His life (Eph. 2:8-9). On this foundation, this truth, all believers in Jesus now belong to this Kingdom.

In Luke 17:21, Jesus Said that the Kingdom of God “…is within you…” This clearly shows that the Kingdom of God is here and now. Not some kind of nirvana, or emotion we need feel or a place we must look for.

There are still lost people (unchanged hearts), and what’s worse is that the people who were once “aware” are now falling away (2 Thess. 2:3). That can be both good and bad news. In the good, it means that we are ever closer to the Lord returning. On the bad, people have become so Heavenly minded and religious that they are become no earthly good.

But if you can hear, maybe you can encourage a fallen man or woman of God and point him or her back to the truth. Remind them that God loves them and that you do too. That’s a powerful message; and it’s not complicated.

The Gospel (or good news) is that we are still in harvest time and reaping time. The lost are still out there. And, we still need to continue to expand the Kingdom.

We don’t need to overlook the literal, present aspects of this Kingdom, the one Jesus spoke about at the Sermon on the Mount. Let us be happy that we and many around us in our lives can be counted as sanctified and redeemed of the earth. We are subjects of a Glorious King (ONLY Jesus, I know of no other king), and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. *

Scriptures used from ONLY KJV:

Lk 17:21 “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

2 Chron 16:9 “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.”

Jn 12:32 “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.”

Mt 21:37 “But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.”

And to recap:

Rev 21:3 “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

 

California Hates Jesus/God/Bible ? (LINK)

The evil socialists of California; haven’t they heard “Don’t judge?” Looks like they want to do more than just judge. They want God’s Word banned from public. Makes you wonder why. Are they so scared or threatened??? Can’t stand up to the truth eh?

Sorry, Californians; you guys might want to get on board with the Lord! And as shakey and quakey Cali is, I’d be clinging to some more of a foundation than a liberals whim!! Leave God’s Word be! Now would maybe be a good time to re-locate eh? Having God mad at you, well…He’s bigger; it a terrible thing to come under the wrath of God.

Impending Judgment?

Ya know, I was thinking about how easy it is for us all to see a problem coming. Regardless of what you believe, want to argue or debate; the truth is, we can see what could be perceived as a judgment; certainly a trial or tribulation. Possibly even a death sentence for many. Will it be you?

Back in Noah’s day, people were warned, but sadly, they paid no heed to Noah, nor God. They repented not. And yes, they saw the impending judgment, the rain, the waters of the deep, flood from above! And still, even though they saw the danger, did they repent? Was it too late? Did any humans survive? Only eight…..only eight.

Today, we saw, as sadly as it was, Hurricane Harvey, and now Hurricane Irma, with the possibility of more coming. And as we have seen from the past, Hurricanes, whether manufactured by evil men’s technology, mother nature rebelling mankind- unforgiving to millions, climate change…whatever you wish or have been indoctrinated to imagine; the point is….have you even thought of repenting? Telling God you’re sorry you have flaws, failures, have literally rebelled against Him? What if you repented? What if….the storm was a little more gentler when it comes your way. Ya know, as the days continue it seems the name of Jesus becomes to many a bad word, a name to not mention. Oh we say, “God” (and there’s only One) but it to some it’s vague. Why are so many afraid to even mention Jesus’ name?

And……….yet we can say a thousand times the name of a monster, the name of impending judgment- 😦

Maybe it’s time we call out on that name again. What do you think?

The Lord is coming back and I believe it’s soon….not by and by, but soon. Live every day as if it were as soon as tomorrow.

Luke 21

22 “For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. 24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.  25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. ”

Luke 17

26 “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. ”

Luke 21

7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass? 8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. 9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. 10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: 11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. 12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake. ”
