There are many, but I have seen two types of “Christianity” for several years.
One is based on feelings. Baptists have been know for this. Their worship and preaching are designed to make you feel good about yourself. The technical details of the truth found in scripture are minimized for the sake of unity. This method has found its way into many other groups including the church of Christ. Children from this side are easy to control and harm with false doctrine.
The other group is only the known facts are important. They are strict without love. Love is minimized for the sake of what they see as the truth. They fear love will weaken the following of the Law. It does not have to. Children from this side often grow up and abandon Christianity as controlling and harmful.
Both are extreme views. Neither is correct today as all of it has been influenced by the world. If you have been under either, the point to remember is that the basics of Christian truth are valid and necessary for a good life. All of God’s Law is built on Love. True Christian principles with love are the most important thing you can pass on to your children. At the same time one must realize that you only teach. You can not force children to believe or act on your teaching on their own. Scripture is true. If you teach with a good balance of love they will come back to it.
Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Many churches teach that God loves everyone. They also teach that we are all the same and that God loves us all the same. If one believes this is true then one must deal with many verses that teach differently.
One example is the Canaanite woman in Matthew 15:26.
“It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.”
In this scripture Christ made a difference between two peoples. Scripture defines the children as true Israel. Christ called the Canaanites dogs. If you think that is a single instance you should do a study on dogs, swine and snakes in scripture and realize that the scripture makes quite a difference between peoples.
This is not just an old testament teaching. The scripture makes a difference between people from Genesis all the way through to the end of the book of Revelation. It is true Israel that is the apple of God’s eye, Deuteronomy 32:9-11, and Israel only has God dealt with, Psalms 147:19-20. Unfortunately most have been taught to ignore these differences in scripture through false doctrine and spiritualization of scripture which destroys the intended meaning.
I have written before that there are people whom God hates. Esau Edom, who is in modern Jewry, is at the top of the list. If you believe that hate just means God loves them less then you must admit that God does not love everyone the same.
The next time your spouse or close family member asks if you love them, tell them that you love everyone the same and see what kind of response you get. Well God loves true Israel as no other because God was married to Israel and promised to remarry Israel as they become Christians today. One can not spiritualize that to any and everyone without destroying the meaning of scripture.
The modern day Jews are not true Israel. Scripture teaches that true Israel has been the one to take the Light of the Gospel to the world while forming many nations.
Churches have had no back bone as of late. The political leader whom many Christians distrusted because of something he said, what 20 years ago, has been pushing churches to meet again. He has called them essential. They need to grow some back bone and prove who is the head of their church, Christ or government.
Oh, you have a 501c3 tax status? Why would you ask the government for permission to exist and to promise to only obey them. What is wrong with you?
Perhaps this little bit of persecution will lead some of them to start preaching more truth. They need to stop loving and supporting those who hate Christ.
God will not allow any disease to prosper against His people when they obey Him. Read Deuteronomy 28.
3 John 1:2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
Genesis 1:29 “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food.”
The availability of anything we have been given can vary based on our obedience to Yahweh God. The persecution of God’s people has increased lately and God has perhaps heard our groaning.
Exodus 2:24 “And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.”
In the last few years God has started making some of His herbs available to us again. We have also heard about a help here recently that some are trying to keep from us. That doesn’t matter since we can mostly make our own version. It may do a lot more than just help with a flu or Malaria. No man made drugs can help us. They only cause harm because they are toxic and contain human DNA. They only mask symptoms. It is how they work.
When God divorced the Northern Ten Tribes, The House of Israel, they were sent into the Assyrian captivity. The captivity also included most of The House of Judah, except those at Jerusalem and a few surrounding towns. Scripture calls them “put away and punished”, Matthew 15:24. All hope was not lost and they did not disappear into history.
They were given a promise to one day be called Children of the Living God or Christians, Hosea 1. In the divorce they lost the right to be called Israel (Ruling with El (God)). So, with one exception, from then on they are only called Nations in scripture. The translators not understanding this changed Nations to read Gentiles. This shows the importance for one to faithfully translate a word as found in the Hebrew and Greek texts. Scripture explains in several verses that those Nations were descendants of Jacob.
The New covenant was made only with those of the House of Israel and the House of Judah, Jeremiah 31 and Hebrews 8. That promise has been kept. For almost the last 2000 years they have been for the most part Christians. They have formed many Nations and spread Christianity to the world as scripture prophesied for the physical children of Jacob/Israel.
Romans 2:14-15a “For when the Nations [Gentiles], which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)”.
Matthew 15:24 “But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the put away and punished [lost] sheep of the house of Israel.”
Here is another thing that helps to destroy faith.
There are a growing number of television shows that have some crazy religious zealot as the bad guy. There are lots of zealots, most all of them pretty normal people. Most all of the prophets in the scripture could be considered zealots. Christ would fit in that category.
When our children were little and we realized they had a virus there was a desire to take them to the doctor. However simple high school biology taught that there is nothing a doctor can do for a virus. So they were never taken to a doctor for a virus. Home remedies help.
It has gotten to the point now that if one even suggests that God’s wonderful immune system is all we need for a virus most Christians would look at you as a lunatic and wait for their toxic vaccine. People are already going to their doctor’s asking for the toxic vaccine for their children. I feel badly for the children who will be given it.
The vaccine will cause permanent damage. The vaccine will violate God’s Law and should be equated with receiving the diseases of Egypt for the cures of Egypt. It would be a reproach if God has to cure you from a voluntary, self inflicted “cure” of Egypt.
Exodus 2:24 “And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.”
The groaning is due to a sudden increase to our bondage.
Yahweh God of heaven and earth Praise Your Name. Do not let the heathen rage and think they have destroyed You. Do not let them say, Where is their God in whom they trust. Show them Your power oh God.
The wicked plot against the just, and gnash upon him with his teeth. The Lord shall laugh at him: for he sees that his day is coming. Psalm 37:12-13
Psalm 139:21-24 “Do I not hate them, O Yahweh, who hate You? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You? I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them my enemies. Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.”
Save your true Israel people oh God.
The standard teaching in churches it that Ruth was a physical descendant of Moab. Here is why that is not true.
The land of Moab was taken away from Moab by two kings of the Ammorites. Sihon king of Heshbon and by Og king of Bashan. Yahweh God gave the land they possessed to Israel. This land then became the home to the two and a half tribes of Israel. That is Gad, Reuben and the half tribe of Manasseh. The land retained its name, the Land of Moab, just like the land of Canaan.
You will find the explanation for this in Deuteronomy 2:24 through 3:22.
Here is a summary about how Israel took the land that had been the Land of Moab.
Numbers 21:26 “For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all his land out of his hand, even unto Arnon.”
Remember that by the time of Deuteronomy 2:24 through 3:22, Israel had already passed by where Moab was currently living and they had gone around Edom before all this happened.
It was about 250 years later that Ruth was born. She was born to parents who were of one of the three tribes of Israel who had opted for an inheritance on the East side of Jordan. She grew up knowing that she was from the land called the Land of Moab. Being separated from the rest of Israel she did not know she was an Israelite. The book of Jasher shows that the tribes East of Jordan had made a commitment to not forget their God or His Law. Through the times of the judges it is not really a surprise to find they did not.
When Naomi went home to the land of Judah, Ruth went with her. There Boaz and the rest of the town recognized that Ruth was an Israelite as they treated her as one. If she had been a true foreigner they would never have given her the position of a daughter as true Moabites were on the no marry list for Israel.
I just finished writing the local city council about a proposed mask resolution. I read through some of the letters.
One expert said no to the wearing of masks due to the harm caused by the wearing of the mask. One MD was wishy-washy which unfortunately is very common for doctors. They are not really trained in depth for masks. OSHA experts train them. Most of the email was from people who watch enough TV news to be frightened silly. They just want to feel comfortable by forcing every one else to wear a mask. Mask wearing can be dangerous to the health of the person wearing the mask. Masks do not protect one from this disease.
Have you considered?
1 Corinthians 6:19 “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?”
If wearing a mask harms the wearer, which it does in the environmental conditions that most are being told to wear one, then that is harming your body, the temple of the Holy Spirit. If that is not enough there is also an occult connection to wearing a mask.
It has been suggested that we are now seeing the first mark of the beast.
Revelation 14:9b “If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand”.
The Greek word for forehead primarily means face, perhaps wearing a face mask. The second mark would be a chip implanted in the hand. That is planned to be pushed very soon.
Well, we still may not know what the marks will be, but this one makes more sense then the several I have heard of in the past.
God gives us a choice to obey Him or be forced to obey those who hate Him and you. Obey God’s Law or live under the anti-Christ sharia law. The Obamanation spent eight years getting it ready by removing the legal road blocks. Now Minneapolis is working on replacing the police with sharia compliant police.
Maybe that is all this was about? Do you think people would accept an anti-Christ evil to stop rioting? That is depending on a false god. It is idolatry. Some think getting back to the constitution will save us. Just remember that it is so poorly written that it allowed us to get into this mess. Anyone who thinks otherwise is thinking the same as those who say we haven’t tried true Communism yet.
And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if Yahweh be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
What’s it going to be?
