The Literal Interpretation

 

      Have you ever wondered?   What could this possibly mean?  Jesus said, “I came not  but unto, The Lost Sheep of the House of Israel.”  The exact word spoken of to pay attention to IS the word  WORLD !  

John 15:18 – 19  “If you know the World HATE YOU, You know that it HATED ME, before it HATED YOU.  If you were of the world, the world would LOVE IT’S OWN:  but because YE ARE NOT OF THE WORLD, BUT I HAVE CHOSEN YOU OUT OF THE WORLD, therefore the world hateth you.

 

John 12:47   And if any man hear my words, and BELIEVE NOT, I JUDGE HIM NOT:  For I came not to JUDGE THE WORLD BUT TO SAVE THE WORLD. 

Amos 3-1-2  Hear this word that the Lord hath spoken against you, O children of ISRAEL, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying,  “YOU ONLY HAVE I KNOWN OF ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH:  therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.

Jesus came to seek the LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL to bring them back into the sheepfold.  Israel was his BRIDE and because of her fornication and adultery and backsliding, GOD DIVORCED ISRAEL.  Israel had split up as a nation and there was the Northern Kingdom of the House of Israel, which God divorced and the Southern Kingdom, the House of Judah.  Both Kingdoms were ruled by separate Kings.

BABYLON THE GREAT HAS FALLEN, HAS FALLEN

 COME OUT OF    “HER”     MY PEOPLE

       Babylon is the WORLD.  It is not a “specific place”, but a WORLD SYSTEM, a literal KINGDOM that RULES THIS WORLD, and the PRINCE OF THIS WORLD, is none other than SATAN THE DEVIL.  For when Jesus was in the wilderness, fasting and praying for forty days and forth nights, Satan came unto him offering him the Kingdoms of this WORLD.

Luke 4:5-7  “And the devil, taking him unto a high mountain, shewed unto him ALL the KINGDOMS of the WORLD in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, ALL THIS POWER WILL I GIVE THEE, and THE GLORY OF THEMFOR THAT IS DELIVERED UNTO ME, AND WHOMSOEVER I WILL I GIVE ITIf thou therefore WILT WORSHIP ME, ALL SHALL BE THINE.

John 12:31   “Now is the judgement of this WORLD, now shalt the PRINCE OF THIS WORLD BE CAST OUT”.

John 14:30   “Hereafter, I will not talk much with you, for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me”.     (As defined in the King James – Prince = Ruler)

John 16:11  “The “PRINCE OF THIS WORLD IS JUDGED”.

The Church is CONFUSED about Babylon

 

   Many in the Church are wondering and discussing “What, Who and Where is Babylon today?  Who is this WOMAN WHO SITS ON MANY WATERS, and SITS ON Seven MOUNTAINS?   Who is this HARLOT of whom ALL NATIONS have drunk of the WINE OF HER FORNICATIONS and the merchants of the WORLD have WAXED RICH through the abundance of her delicacies.   Many believe it’s located in Rome as the Catholic Church.  Others say it’s in Mecca in Saudi Arabia and is Islam.  Then likewise, Jerusalem is also surrounded by seven mountains as well.

      Jesus was NOT CONFUSED!  He knew exactly who Satan and his seed were.  At the time that he walked this earth, he called them out publically for there continual provocations and temptations towards him.  They were the so called Jews, that called themselves JEWS, but were of the SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN.  Even way back then, Satan’s seed had infiltrated the congregation and had mingled themselves into the priesthood, intermarrying  with the children of the House of Judah that lived and resided in Israel.  They were the Scribes and the Pharacees, mixed with the Canaanites and the Edomite bloodlines.  It is commonly believed that King Herod, who ruled over Israel at the time of Jesus,  was an Edomite.

John 8:41-44  “Ye do the deeds of your father.  Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.  Jesus said unto them, “If God were your Father, ye would love me; for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.  He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.  When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:  for he is a liar, and the father of it.

IDENTIFICATION OF SATAN’S SEED

 

   Everybody knows the story of Adam and Eve.  But, do you REALLY KNOW THE STORY OF Adam and Eve,  OR HAVE YOU JUST ACCEPTED THE STORY you have always been taught and told?  There is a lot more in depth and detail that the Book of Genesis does not explain.  However, the Bible interpreretes the Bible,   unfolding and explains to us the entire Book of Genesis if we follow it through it’s entirety.  What happened in the Garden of Eden wasn’t just a simple story of eating an apple and Satan convincing Adam and Eve to do so.  The Fall of Man was a MIXING OF THE GENETIC CODE OF MANKIND which resulted in Eve conceiving two sons, Cain (Canaanite) and Abel ( seed after Adam,  Created in God’s image).   God placed ENMITY between the seed of the WOMAN, Eve, and the seed of THE SERPENT (Satan the Devil).  So, this was the beginning of TWO SEEDS and two distinct and separate FATHERS, the WHEAT AND THE TARES.

Satan was a MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, and his seed was CAIN, WHO ALSO WAS A MURDERER,  WHO SLEW HIS BROTHER ABEL.  Cain was banished from the presence of the Lord and was banished to the LAND OF NOD.  Cain was also MARKED and likewise, if anyone should kill Cain, they too would be punished “Seven Fold”.  The punishment was severe, however Cain went on to continue his lineage and by the time of the flood, all manner of evil and iniquity had filled the earth.

It wasn’t until Adam was 130 years old that he had another son in his likeness, Seth.  It is out of the lineage and genealogy of Seth that Noah was born.  Noah was PURE IN HIS GENERATIONS, not just meaning RIGHTEOUS, but pure in his bloodline, that he and his ancestors prior to the flood did not possess any of Cain’s bloodline, nor the bloodline of the fallen angels.

In the course of the time between the fall of Adam and Eve and the flood, wickedness continued to increase, the Son’s of God (the Fallen Angels) saw that the daughter’s of men, that they were fair, and took unto them wives and had children with them.

Genesis 6:2-4  “That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair;  and they took them wives of all which they chose.  And the Lord said My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh; yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.  THERE WERE GIANTS IN THE EARTH IN THOSE DAYS; and also AFTER THAT, when the son’s of God came in unto the daughters of men and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

God destroyed the earth with a flood but allowed Noah and his wife and his three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth along with their three wives to enter into the ark and live.  However, not all of Cain’s seed and the wickedness of the earth was destroyed in the flood.

 

THE SEED OF CAIN CONTINUES ON AFTER THE FLOOD

 

     Sometimes it’s just as important to take into account what is written, as well as what is not written.  We know that Noah was PURE IN HIS GENERATIONS, however this is all that we are told regarding Noah himself.  We know that Noah had a wife and three sons and those three sons had three wives.  But, Noah was the only one spoken of WHO WAS PURE IN “HIS” generations.  Noah was 600 years old when he entered into the ark and he was 500 years old when he begat Shem, Ham and Japheth.   What we don’t know is who Noah’s wife was nor the wives and mothers were of each of Noah’s three sons.  Being that Noah had lived 600 years before the flood and it was also the custom of that time to have multiple wives, we do not know if all of Noah’s son’s were born of the wife that Noah took aboard the ark.  Therefore, except for Shem (as he was the chosen bloodline of Abraham) we don’t know if the mothers of Ham and Japheth were born of Noah’s wife who entered the ark with him, or were of other marriages or bonds.   We also don’t know the genealogy of the wives of Shem, Ham and Japheth, so therefore, we can not assume that they were pure in their generations.

It is recorded in the Jewish Talmud (which is separate from the Biblical recordings), that Noah married a woman named, “NAA-MAH” and that she was the MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.  Now the Bible doesn’t record the names in genealogy without specific reason or purpose, especially when millions upon billions of people lived from the time of Adam to Jesus.  So in Genesis 4 we come upon the lineage of the genealogy of the line of Cain’s seed and we find that Tubalcain had a sister and her name was NAA-MAH.  Although the scripture does not specifically specify that this in deed was Noah’s wife, historical documents do record this to be his wife and why would this woman’s name even be recorded in the Bible to begin with.  Nothing more is said about this woman, however, I believe that it is explained further in Genesis to it’s understanding.

Genesis 4:22  “And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain, an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron:  and the sister of Tubal-cain was Na-a-mah.

      Now after the flood we move on to Genesis chapter 9.  We all know the story of Noah planting a vineyard and getting drunk and he was uncovered in his tent and the father of Canaan saw his nakedness.  What does this mean?

Genesis 9:20-26  “And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard.  And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was UNCOVERED WITHIN HIS TENT.   And Ham, the father of CANAAN, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.  And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.  And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.  And he said ‘CURSED BE CANAAAN: a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.  And he said “Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.”

This is pretty serious business here.  First of all, Ham wasn’t cursed and why it is unclear, but his offspring, Canaan is cursed above all men on the face of the earth.  We know that God commanded the Israelites to wipe out the Canaanites when they entered into the promised land.  Further, God did not curse Noah for getting drunk on the wine, although his drunkenness was the direct cause of the uncovering of his nakedness.  So, what did Canaan do to deserve being cursed, when Ham his father was responsible for uncovering his father’s nakedness?  As stated previously, “The Bible interprets the Bible”.  Let us go to other scripture on this subject.  Also, it is somewhat strange and unusual that two boys who had been with their father for well over 600 years now, had never seen their father naked.  So let’s determine what the term “Nakedness of one’s Father means”.

Leviticus 18:6-12  None of you shall approach to any that is NEAR OF KIN TO YOU, to UNCOVER THEIR NAKEDNESS:  I Am the Lord.  The NAKEDNESS OF THY FATHER, OR THE NAKEDNESS OF THY MOTHER, shalt thou NOT UNCOVER; She is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.  The nakedness OF THY FATHER’S  ‘WIFE’, shalt thou not uncover, it is thy FATHER’S NAKEDNESS.  The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home or abroad, even their nakedness though shalt not uncover.  The nakedness of thy son’s daughter, or thy daughter’s daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover, for theirs is thine own nakedness.   Thou shalt not uncover thy nakedness of thy father’s sister, she is thy father’s near kinswoman.  Thou shalt not uncover thy nakedness of thy mother’s sister, for she is thy mother’s near kinswoman.

As we can clearly interpret through the scripture, it is unlawful to ever uncover the nakedness of a near kinsperson in one’s immediate family.  It is clear, Ham uncovered THE NAKEDNESS OF HIS FATHER.  It would seem very obvious from scripture that while Noah was UNAWARES of what was going on, either too caught up in his life and vineyard, that something was going on behind the scenes with Ham.  Noah’s nakedness was his WIFE and Ham went about to uncover it.  To uncover ones’ nakedness does not merely mean to see the person, but to have sexual relations with that person.  From all available evidence, it would appear that Ham had relations with Noah’s wife and the result was the birth of Ham’s son, Canaan.  It becomes obvious that Noah would curse his own grandson because of this.  Furthermore, it was more than likely, if Noah’s wife was the sister of Tubal-cain, that she may have been more than likely an adulterous as well and possibly encouraged an adulterous encounter with Noah’s son Ham.   therefore the sin’s of Cain were passed through the flood.  Furthermore, why else would Ham’s son be named CANAAN other than he was a DIRECT DECENDANT OF CAIN himself.  It’s highly unlikely that Noah’s wife was the mother of Ham.

God made a covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob that their seed would inherit the land of Canaan.  He blessed Abraham and told him that his seed would be as the dust of the earth and the sands of the sea and counted without number.  When the Children of Israel crossed over the river Jordan after wandering in the desert for 40 years, God commanded them to wipe out all of the inhabitants of the land of Canaan…men, women, children and animals.  But, while Israel obeyed in part, they also failed to wipe them all out and they intermingled and married with the seed of Canaan and Esau as well.

The children of Canaan were Sidon and Heth and their offspring were the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgasites, the Hivites, the Arkites, and the Sinites, the Arvadites, the Zearites, and the Hamathites.  Of this origin also came the Philistines and the Giants. God forbade Israel from intermarrying with the Canaanites.

 

 THE BLOODLINE OF JESUS CHRIST

 

      Shem was the chosen bloodline that would pass on the genealogy from Adam’s son Seth to Noah and finally to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to the tribe of Judah and finally down to King David, Son of Jesse and Son of Man, Jesus Christ.  The entire purpose of this study is to explain the importance that the bloodline of Adam be preserved in it’s purity.  The Son of Man could in no way be born of the flesh, of a Virgin, born out of mixed bloodline of the seed of Cain.  The Son of Man was born pure in his generations.  He was fully God and fully man, born of the flesh.

All throughout the lineage of Adam through Seth through Noah through Abraham to Isaac and down to Jesus, the Israelites were given strict guidelines that they were not to marry outside of the congregation.  Even though, we find that on many occasions, that it was recorded that the Israelites were disobedient and did marry into the bloodlines of Cain.  Judah, the son of Jacob (Israel) did so as well as Esau.

When we examine the genealogy of of Abraham we will discover that the bloodline was tightly woven between the direct descendants of Noah’s son Shem.  Shem begat Araphaxad, who begat Salah who begat Eber who begat Peleg and Joktan, and the earth was divided during that time.  The bloodline goes down through Peleg who begat Reu, who begat Serug who begat Nahor who begat Terah, the Father of Abraham.  Terah had three sons, Abraham, Haran and Nahor.  And Haran is the father of Abraham’s nephew, Lot.  Abraham and his brother Nahor both took of them wives.  Nahor took his brother’s daughter, Milcah as a wife, who was Lot’s sister as well.  You see, this was Nahor’s neice.  Abraham also married Sarah, the the daughter-in-law of Terah, who was barren.  Why did it even mention that Sarah (Sarai) was barren.  All women were barren before they get married, but in this case, she was also the Dauther-in-law of Terah, as she could only have been the wife of Haran, Abraham’s brother who had died before his father Terah,in the land of Ur of the Chaldees.  This is a perfect example of how important it was that the brother’s would marry the widow of their deceased brother to raise up seed unto them.  Initially I assumed that Abraham had married Sarah, his brother Haran’s daughter and that Sarai was Abraham’s niece. But in the following verses, it specifically defines that Sarai was Terah’s daughter-in-law and Abraham’s wife.

Genesis 11:28 – 31  And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees. And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram’s wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah  the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.  But Sarai was barren; she had no child. And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

      It has always been a mystery as to exactly why Abraham told the Pharaoh of Egypt, when they passed through, that his wife Sarah was indeed his sister.    If Abraham was truly a righteous man, he would in no means lie about his wife being his sister this would be in direct conflict and contradiction with scripture, Thou shalt not Lie.   It is also forbidden to uncover the nakedness of one’s sister.  Sarah was indeed Abraham’s wife and she was his Sister-in-Law.  Long before the Law was given on Mt. Sinai, it was already in effect and practiced by the descendants of Shem.

Genesis 12:18 -20   And Pharaoh called Abram, and said, What is this that thou hast done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?  Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.  And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.

Jesus could simply not be born in the flesh with any of the seed line of Cain, Esau or the Nephilim in his blood.  God is perfect and can not mingle himself or look upon sin and God forbid that Jesus would be born of the seed of a woman who was not pure in her generation.  On how many occasions was it proven that Backsliding Israel, was taken into bondage and captivity to Babylon and Egypt for their adulterous idol worship.  How many times did they have to be punished for mingling themselves with the heathen, taking unto them wives who took them away from the blessings God had bestowed upon them.

Deuteronomy 23:2   A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.

A bastard in this day and age simply means, a child born out of wedlock.  However, that’s not at all what it referred to back in the days of Israel.  A bastard child was a child born out of the union of an Isralite and a gentile or heathen. A greater example was King Solomon.  What did he do, he had a 1000 wives from all nations as well as concubines.  They lead him away from the righteous heart of his father, King David.

1 Kings 11:4  For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father.

 God made a special COVENANT WITH ISRAEL as out of all of the nations of the earth, Israel was the only nation that God KNEW.  If God divorced Israel, he was also married to Israel.  Israel was the BRIDE OF CHRIST.  The very phrase, TO KNOW A WOMAN, such as Adam “KNEW” Eve, means to be intimate with as Husband and Wife.   God created Israel for himself and he created the garden and the world for his bride.  In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.  The Word was WITH GOD, AND BY HIM ALL THINGS WERE CREATED.  There is God the Father and God the Son and the God of the Old Testament that followed Israel through the wilderness was the same Jesus that died on the cross.  This is why he said, “I haven not come BUT unto the Lost Tribes of Israel”  his bride.  The Gentiles would be grafted into the root of the vine, but do not boast against the vine.  All is not yet fulfilled and there yet remains a marriage supper and a feast of ingathering, but not all will be taken into the wedding chambers.  There will be GUESTS AT THE WEDDING.  Israel was created out of the very RIB OF JESUS CHRIST, GOD HIMSELF.   Bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh.  Israel was created out of the PASSION OF GOD for his bride.  Do you now know why he was a JEALOUS GOD?    His rival, the ADVISARY, committed adultery with his wife.  The entire Bible was written with the focus of Love, Passion and Family.  God placed his  very own, created in his very own image, just like his Father created him in his own image, to be JOINT HEIRS WITH HIM IN HIS KINGDOM.  He called out Israel among the nations as an example and a PECULIAR PEOPLE.

Exodus 19:5   Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Deuteronomy 14:2  For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.

Deuteronomy 26:18 And the LORD hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments;

Psalms 135:4 For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.

Ecclesiastes 2:8   I gathered me also silver and gold, and the peculiar treasure of kings and of the provinces: I gat me men singers and women singers, and the delights of the sons of men, as musical instruments, and that of all sorts.

Titus 2:14  Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

1 Peter 2:9  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:

The Gentiles were grafted into the root of the vine.  This is what the Book of Ruth is all about, a shadow of things to come.  Ruth was a Moabites.  The Moabites were descendants of Moab, a son of Lot.   The daughters of Lot, after the destruction of Sodom and Ghamorrah did not believe that there was anyone alive on the earth to allow them to conceive children.  So, they made their father Lot, drunken with wine and conceived children by him.  A disgusting thouht no less, but the children of Moab were not considered eligible to bring into the congregation of Israel.  Naomi, Ruth’s mother-in-law and her husband left their country and went into the country of Moab, where her two son’s found them wives of the Moabites, one of them being Ruth.  Later Naomi’s husband dies along with her two son’s and Ruth decides to accompany Naomi back to Israel and worship the God of Israel and not the God of Moab.  Ruth in her righteousness, marries a kinsman of Naomi to raise up seed unto his kinsman, Ruth’s  deceased husband. Ruth becomes the great grandmother of King David, who also Jesus refers to himself as the Son of David.  Ruth is grafted into the vine of the root of Israel, the Bride of Christ.   More than 10 generations would pass before Jesus was born out of her bloodline and that the bloodline of her gentile genealogy would be purified and purged.  Ruth personified Paul’s ministry in fulfillment of the time of the Gentiles.

MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE

 In Genesis 10, it also talks about the three sons of Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth and who their descendants were.  We know that Abraham came out of the line of Shem, and we know that out of Ham, came the nations of Persia and Babylon, but what about Japheth?  Who are the nations that were born out of Japheth?   We  that Ham’s son, Canaan was cursed by Noah and that they would be made to be a servant of servants to his brethren, meaning that his seed would FOREVER serve Shem and Japheth.  But, then we look at WHO IS JAPHETH and where did they reside and who are they to this day?  Well, Japheth is referred to as the Nations of the Isles.

Genesis 10:2 – 5  The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

Genesis 9:27   God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall “DWELL” in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

The Gospel was preached, FIRST TO THE JEWS, and then to THE GENTILES.   Who are the Gentile Nations?  Well it would appear that Jesus sent the 11 Apostles out to the Lost Tribes of Israel, after his resurrection.  But then, he met Paul on the Road to Damascus and BLINDED HIM.  He sent Paul to Greece, Rome and Turkey to preach the Gospel to the NATIONS, or the GENTILES.  These were the Islands of the Gentiles, or of the tribes of the Son’s of Japheth.  This is from where the Gospel to the Gentile nations began and spread over the entire earth to ALL NATIONS on the earth.  God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall DWELL in the Tents of Shem.  Japheth in actuality is larger than Israel.  Shem represents Israel and Japheth represents the Gentile nations of southern Europe, the Isles.

The descendants of Cain, Canaan and Esau were never blessed.  Esau gave away his birthright and the descendants of Canaan were the direct descendants of Cain and were born of the seed of Satan and his adulterous affair with Eve.  They can not HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD, they are lost forever and were murderers from the beginning, just like their father, Satan the Devil.   It’s the same today in this world, Satan’s seed has corrupted mankind and just as in the “Day’s of Noah”, they will be eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage, and then the END SHALL COME !  All manner of evil will be upon the earth.  Satan’s Kingdom is a KINGDOM OF MERCHANDISING.  He creates BONDAGE, through the world monetary system and the mammon of the world.  He causes people to COVET AND LUST, but Jesus instructed his disciples to ‘SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN’, and all of these things shall be given unto thee.   Give and ye shall receive and Love your brother as yourself.  You shall know them by their fruits and their LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER…

How God Answers Prayer when you Pour Yourself out & Press into HIM….

GOD IS ALWAYS THERE LISTENING FOR YOU TO ASK HIM FOR HIS ADVISE

“ARE YOU WILLING TO BE LEAD LIKE A YOUNG FOAL INTO THE “Kingdom of Heaven”?

NancyThis morning I woke up to a post in my email that has settled my spirit…for two days now, I have been torn up emotionally over something personal going on in my life and it was driving me into a complete out of control tizzy….I realized that my direction and thoughts were so filled with this issue that I couldn’t even concentrate or focus to pray…and had to force myself into making that prayer effective and really concentrate and pour my heart out to God, and ask him that his will be done, not mine…

It’s only when I humble myself that I can then begin to feel God’s power take over in my life. When I put my own desires to the side, can I let him lead me and he brings others to my side to strengthen me and give me his Word and message as to where to follow…This is when he is also able to use the body of Christ to bring us all together closer.

As I was contemplating all of this, this morning, it brought me back to a memory some years back when I was raising horses in Illinois…It was always so exciting when a new foal was born…nothing more beautiful, sweet and innocent…from day one, when the colt was born, I would begin conditioning them and desensitizing them so that they would not resist me…then getting them used to wearing a halter…this is when the fun began is learning to break a horse to lead…

My first couple of foals were determined to not cooperate and a certain woman who got me involved in horses was a very abrupt aggressive personality and her way of getting a horse to lead was very harsh…It always turned into a tug of war and a battle of wills, where the colt was determined to stand it’s ground, all four feet planted out square with it’s head pulling back and me sliding toward him…We both had a workout.

It wasn’t until some woman came to my farm who raised horses as well and observed my predicament that everything changed immediately before my eyes...She demonstrated…put the lead line on the colt, turn your back to it and simply, WALK AWAY FROM IT, BUT LEAVE SLACK IN THE LINE.…From that moment on, all that happened was the colt followed me…

Listen for God’s small voice…and let him lead you in your lives…

God Bless, have a wonderful day and just keep listening…& NEVER FORGET,   “…PRAISE HIM IN ALL OF YOUR WAYS AND HE WILL GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART…

I would like to give a special credit to the post of : Russ Francuzenko (Facebook)

“Warriors in Christ Should Be HUMBLE in HEART yet RELENTLESS in BATTLE!!!

My Lord is King, Victory Comes ONLY in Obedience to His Commands.
In, battle, He will let us know when to act and when to be still.
The POWER MUST BE HIS, not ours. When it begins to become ours we begin to get in the way of His Power.

When we start believing we are Powerful we put ourselves at risk of the Spirit of Pride. My King can place more into an Empty Vessel that one with something else in it. We fight the more dangerous things.Things that are not seen. The things that fuel and direct the evil in this World.

I am nobody except for Him. I am but Dust and will return to Dust.
My soul and Spirit are His.

I will back all this up with scripture when I can. You are welcome to help me.

What is the Holy Spirit? – How can we receive it?

Sharper Image 087THE HOLY SPIRIT
What is the Holy Spirit?
How can we receive the Holy Spirit?

How can we know whether we have the Holy Spirit?

You know not where it comes from nor where it came, but it brings forth all truth and understanding to mind and teaches you. It is also referred to as the “COMFORTER”. The “Holy Spirit is the “Mind of God and his Power” and it has the ability to unit with the Spirit God gave man when we were born with that placed life within our flesh. The Holy Spirit gives you the power to overcome the flesh and overcome evil doings. The Holy Spirit causes you to think on those things which are good and righteous, pure and true, not to dwell and think on those things which are evil and of the world. The Holy Spirit directs you on the path of receiving eternal life. You will live forever, like the promise God gave to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden,  “IF”  they had eaten of the “TREE OF LIFE.”

“The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”

John 3:8  “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

John 3:3  “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.”

In John chapter 3, the example is given in a conversation between Jesus, our Savior and Nicodemus, where Nicodemus clearly did not understand what the Holy Spirit was nor how to receive it. Nicodemus could not comprehend any of the points in the conversation because he did not have the Holy Spirit to receive and understand the words Jesus was presenting to him. He could not see the Kingdom of God. Furthermore, Jesus tells us in John 3:11, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.” From this we recognize that Nicodemus could not recognize nor understand spiritual things, but also, Nicodemus did not want to believe, his heart was centered in disbelief, he was stubborn!

In John 3 and many other places in the New Testament, it is first required for a person to REPENT, then BE BAPTIZED (fully immersed in water to wash away all previous sins, a symbolic renewal, a new beginning point). Then hands laid upon you as an anointing to receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit. From this point forward, being that the person is really sincere in his heart, the Holy Spirit units with the Spirit in man and begins working with you in your daily life. This is not a quick overnight sudden miracle, but a lifetime process of overcoming your carnal, fleshly and worldly desires. The Apostle Paul explains this in detail in the Book of Romans.

To continue on a little further, “What is Repentance?” A great many people really don’t understand and are mislead in their ideas of what this means and apply it to the meaning “I’M SORRY. But what are you sorry for? Sorry that I made a mistake? Sorry you got in trouble? Sorry you have to live with the mess it made in your life? Sin hurts you and everyone involved with and around you and no matter what, we have to pay the price. True Repentance goes beyond feeling sorry for yourself and wishing you hadn’t done whatever and paid the price for committing the sin, even if you learn your lessons. True Repentance means realizing your act, feeling remorse in your heart and disgust for committing the sin in itself. Further, it recognizes how your actions have not only hurt you, but those around you. Repentance is learning to feel the pain for those you have offended. Repentance in it’s fullest form means WANTING TO CHANGE, and turning away from sin. You make a commitment in your heart and ask God for FORGIVENESS, because you don’t want sin in your life anymore and the consequences that come from it.

Once we repent and ask God for forgiveness, we are now ready for baptism. Baptism is a symbolic demonstration of our willingness to follow through with the desire in our hearts to wash away sin in our lives. God is perfect and without sin. God cannot unite his perfect, sinless spirit with a worldly carnal man full of sin as this would corrupt God himself. When God gives you his Holy Spirit and you receive it, YOU BECOME ONE WITH GOD. Jesus Christ is the Holy Spirit, the Comforter and God himself so loved the world that he himself gave to you,  His “ONLY BEGOTTEN SON”….SO THAT YOU MAY live and RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE. At this point, You become the LIVING TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD and he makes his dwelling place in your body and his Spirit lives within you. We become the Church, the Bride of Christ, Joint living heirs with Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. We become the Kingdom of Heaven, the Kingdom of God. All that God gives to his son, we as the Bride of Christ possess as well.

As baptized living members of the Body of Christ, we are no longer citizens of this world, but are now “Born Again” into the Kingdom of Heaven. We serve Jesus Christ as our King and Savior who now dwells within us and it is his Spirit that begins to change us from within and he becomes our conscious thought, leading us to perfection in him. Satan is the Ruler of this World and the World is Satan’s Kingdom. Satan wants you to hang on to sin as Satan is sin and SIN IS DEATH.

You will see the change in yourself. Your thoughts will change and you will naturally desire to make a change in your life and no one is forcing or telling you what to do. God accepts us as we are and loves us no matter what we have done in the past. No matter what the crime or deed was that previously caused you separation from God, now you are healed. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE PERFECT TO BE BORN AGAIN OR BAPTISED, but to just be willing to recognize your sins and sincerely ask for forgiveness. God freely is willing to wash away the sins from the past and see you as a new person and he rejoices for each and every person that willingly turns his heart to him. All he asks is that you will come to him ‘AND HE WILL FIX THE REST.’

One last thing to think about…Remember Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. There were TWO TREES IN THE GARDEN. There was The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and the Tree of ‘LIFE’. Those two trees represented two distinct rulers, two Kings. Satan’s tree = SIN AND DEATH. God’s Tree = ETERNAL LIFE (Jesus Christ). Adam and Eve made a choice. The Tree of Life was not forbidden to eat of, but the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil was forbidden. But, they willingly preferred to eat of the forbidden tree, thus they chose death. Once they did this, God had no choice but to remove them from the garden to prevent them from eating of the Tree of Life and God forbid, live for eternity in a state of sin. Why didn’t they choose the Tree of Life and get the blessing? THE ANSWER, Just plain rebellious and deceived by Satan.

Friends, we are here today at this late hour and once again like Adam and Eve, the choice is set before us….TWO TREES – ONE CHOICE ! Mankind has lived 6,000 years under the curse of Adam and Eve and we have a final choice !

JESUS CHRIST IS THE TREE OF LIFE….DON’T SCREW IT UP!

AMEN
