Christendom for hundreds of years has been defined by men, not God. In the name of Christendom the Council of Nicea burned people alive to force the theory of the Trinity on people. In the name of Christendom Rome worshiped false idols and created totems that we still use today. In the name of Christendom, men mixed Pagan practices and superstitions with Yahweh’s commandments and his Son’s Directions. In a nut shell men have used Christendom as a excuse to pillage, rap, and force their own personal agenda on millions throughout the centuries in the name of our Savior Yeshua. This is the sad truth and one most Christians don’t want to hear about or know about but it’s still the truth. This is how Christianity got a bad name. In fact since Christ return to heaven “Every”, say “Every”, every single act of cruelty in the name of Christ has been done by this sectors of people in Christs body. So it’s no wonder why even the most peaceful Christ followers have such a bad time witnessing and convincing others of the true Agape Love of Christ that links us to our Father and God Yahweh. And regardless of the difference or wrong thoughts you feel about Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses, as a whole they represent, in action and deed, a better picture of Christ’s ways than the vast amount of the churches out there. Are there other peaceful followers not tied into Christendom and all it’s false traditions/ woreship of idols? Yes. But again, there is very little of them. We have to find a way to eliminate denominations and gather as one true church freed of the Pagan tradition and biased violence that has defined Christendom. Only then will we ever be what he wants us to be. Follow Christ ways, not Man!
God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory
THE ACTUAL TRANSLATION
For years this verse has been shown as some kinda proof of this Complex mystery that somehow God and Jesus was the exact same being and person and or that Jesus was actually equal to his Father. The problem was this thought was created and forced on people by the Council of Nicea and of course the rushed false translations of the King James version of the Bible. Although the King James did something we needed, it was not perfect nor always complete in its translation. “It’s better to marry than to Burn”(1 cor 7:9).. is translated but rushed as the text actually reads “burn with passion”. This is common practice in the King James Bible and as you see leaving it as Burn instead of Burn with passion creates the concepts of either go to Hell or Get married which is not at all what this scripture is saying. They added things or half translated words to produce their own beliefs instead of allowing the text to be translated all the way through or just allowing it to be translated the way it was giving. This could have been because of the rush job they had to do, some would say but when you add words to scriptures to change its true meaning then this takes more time than just translating what’s there, so I don’t buy that. A great example is above. Notice this is the same verse but what is the key word that changes everything about this passage? The very first word, God vs He. Let’s start off with the first fact that all Bible students and teachers have to know and accept. The Bible or should I say the letters that were wrote and the stories that were wrote had no chapter, no verse, not punctuations, and no capital letters. Every single one of these things were added by editors. These editors didn’t have nor will ever have any special insight like the disciples did through Holy Spirit power to write and see. These things cause us to read and interpret things differently. So context is very important in translation and understanding scripture. Throughout that so call chapter there were two subjects spoke about, Jesus and God. The theme is godliness. To the context of the verse reveals which subject it is referring to.
Because we assume and allow man to tell us theories about how he figure out God. We take a word like “godliness”and say that this stands for the mystery about who God is, so that it points back to Christ. But godliness does not refer to what makes you God(really I could end it here because once this is shown all other issue pass). Godliness refers to the quality in you that points to your salvation and how or what made that possible. So the mystery was which person the Savior would show up to be and once Christ showed up, why he included the Gentiles into the tree of salvation with the Jews. Salvation was never built on a secret about Christ being God. If that was the case it would have translated into “great is the mystery of the Godhead”. It didn’t, in fact the Greek word “Theos”(greek word for God) is not in this verse at all in any ancient manuscript in the world. It was added there to push this agenda of the Trinity. Most translations that translate word for word have already accepted this. This is the reason the verse above reads “HE” was manifested. The verse never says God was manifested in the original Greek text. This is just fact. Not denomination, but fact. We can not add words to a verse to push our own agenda. Further proof is that you know this verse isn’t talking about God is that the following refers strictly to the Son of God, the man, Christ Yeshua. God, even a trinity God, would never need vindication, would never need to be seen by angles as this is something obvious and yet this verse doesn’t refer to something that has always gone on but something that had just taken place recently, and believed upon by the world isn’t something God needs as he has told us before, even the rocks will praise him. Finally, taken up in glory, this isn’t something even a trinity God would need because he already has glory nor would he ever need to be taken up anywhere, this something he could do himself. Obviously this verse is talking about the “Son of” The God because the context clearly shows which subject is being talked about through this. It is not referring to some secret fact that Christ is actually God in order for you to have salvation. This is what the chruch wants you to believe because the forefathers felt that their theories about God made them important so it became apart of the religious thought and rules, til even today, one believes this has to be confessed and agreed for the Salvation of Christ to count. The only salvation you are we required to have is of Christ being the “Son of” The Living God, died for your sins, and was resurrected on the 3rd day to return as King and Lamb in heaven until his Father’s time to return all things back to himself. This is truth in scripture, not assumptions and made up theology. Christ asked Peter, “Who do you say that I am”..Peter said.. You are the Christ, “son of” the Living God”.. Not one time did he say “you are God” to Christ. Only the Father could have told Peter this and what was told to Peter only revealed him as the long awaited Messiah who would bring salvation, not a hidden God that gives salvation only to those who figured it out his secrect. If you can get this truth it will free you from a lot of false burdens place on you by men. Until the next time.
This is a nice little short video for you to watch or listen to on your break or lunch. This guy does a really good job of pointing key points in timeliness that will help you refresh your connecting knowledge of the OT. It’s one thing to have heard of the stories of Adam, Noah, or Moses, but to be able to connect it in time lines to what happened before and after them is another. Now, this video goes pretty quick to don’t feel bad if you have to watch it multiple times or take note. But I promise once this is applied it will go a long way of helping you see the beauty of the OT and how it relates to all events following there after.
To the married I give this charge (not I, but the Lord): the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband), and the husband should not divorce his wife. 1 Corinthians 7:10
Marriage.. The most important establishment and bond ever made by God. The bond given to a man and woman was to replicate God’s love for his people. As you know God’s people have more than one time cheated on God and yet God still takes them back. We as a people especially God’s chruch should understand that God’s relationship has never been easy with us but at the end of revelation a marriage still takes place with his people and his Son, the lamb and because of this marriage God granted all things from the lamb to the his kingdom through the lambs blood sacrifice. So I ask you.. How and why are you divorcing? It is not the will of God that you divorce and even when you do it is only a legal matter not spiritual. For in God’s mind you are still married because you and your spouse have joined to become one flesh. This is not reversed as no scripture even hints to this. Only during death does scripture release the title of that husband and or wife. Divorce is granted through sexual immorality but again that devoice is only granted legally. In God’s eyes you are still one flesh with the person you have that blood conventant with. Which brings me to another point. A marriage is established through blood. This is the purpose of the bleeding of the cervix of a virgin. That blood represents the shedding of blood of our Christ which ended the Old Covenant ant and started a New Covenant. That is what a marriage is founded on and is the reason why sex before marriage shouldn’t be done because it creates covenants. Whoever you bled on or who bled on you is who you have your covenant with. There were no priest, pastors and no rings. In fact for Jewish law, the ring that is given to the woman is suppose to be the circumcision scar ring left behind when the foreskin was removed. Think about it, both women and men. Somewhere out there is your true husband and first wife. It’s a very scary thing when you think about it. Unfairly in most people’s mind, a man can have multiple wives, God allowed such, but a woman can not. She also can’t shed blood from her cervix again, which is why the bed sheet blood stain was so needed in the old days as proof that a marriage could stand. If there was no blood then the marriage would not hold as righteous unless the woman was a widow. When all is said and done God takes our marriage very seriously and we have gotten away from that especially in the church. Finding the right person to share your virginity and marriage with is very important. God will honor the marriage even if it’s the wrong person. You will be held to the same standards and rules. You can’t just quit because things aren’t going well because you established this covenant. So, staying a virgin until marriage is a foreign choice no longer practiced by the majority of the world, even among Christians. We have lost our way and we need to start with our children in teaching them the right way to live not enabling them to have sex safely instead because the world approves. If we don’t, we will never recover and a true marriage meaning will become lost forever. We are almost there now.
Every now and again I hear this most common statement about everyone’s sin or falling short whenever one claims to the a Christian and yet proudly sins as though this is a get out of jail card. Well it’s not folks. While a guy looking at a girl’s butt as she walks and doesn’t turn away is guilty of lust, and the guy looking at porn is guilty of lust, this doesn’t mean that they would do this in church or in the sight of God and justify it as normal because everyone else does it. If I cut my hand and curse, I repent from it and look to eliminate that from me because I know it’s wrong. What I don’t do is pretend that my actions now are approved and justified because I like doing the act. No I hate sin, in myself or others. Today we proudly sin and try and justify it. We don’t try and change anything. And when others point out what we already know the scripture says about it we act like we can excuse it because others sin. We have to get over this. This is signs of a reprobate mind, which you don’t want because if you have this you will not be saved by God. This means he has removed himself from you to allow and help speed your actions towards judgement because he has tried to warn you over and over and you wouldn’t listen. Every single sin I have done I have felt and remorsed over, seeking absolution from them any time I messed up on anything. I don’t pretend that any lustful thing or thought is somehow OK. I don’t pretend that any evil thought and or action is excused for me to do because others do it. And most importantly, I don’t twist meanings of scriptures to help justify Sin to help me sleep better because I’m too addicted to it that give it up. But this is us. We continue to lie to ourselves and others that we approve of that do the same thing. So yes, if I lust over a movie scene with two girls kissing, it’s still homosexuality and wrong, just like it’s wrong for that guy to have sex with that other guy down the street. Both fall into the same range of sin, even if I am merely approving of the lifestyle. According to God’s word, even those who just approve of the act will be judged just like those who do said act. So I will never approve of anything that God has said he is against and everyone of you who think somehow that you can do it, places themselves against his kingdom. Love the person but never love the actions of anyone that is something that God has said he is against, even if those actions are yours.
As I watch TV, listen to people, and observe events throughout the years, I have seen a disturbing occurrence. Man has created a God for themselves over the true God that created us. When one is to know a being we must first seek to know about who that being is and how he sees things. The source of that answer is found either from that source or at best from those closest to the being. In our case that Being is God and the closet to that being is his Son, the Christ. We know this because scripture tells us no man knows The Father but the Son. And the way the Son made the Father and one true God known was by way of his actions because Christ always did things in the will of the Father. Christ also referred back to law and his Fathers words for direction because this revealed the character of God. Christ never approved the continued life of sin. He alway said, “sin no more”. It is the one way we can express who God is, his love, and most importantly his requirements and ways he expresses that Love and how its defined in his view. God never expresses his kingdom, character, and or actions through mans thoughts and ways. His ways are not ours, as scriptures warns and shows us over and over. But what we have done is create a God that fits our wants, our morals in our country, our sense of right and wrong, our sense of justice, even our sense of theological belief. We do it even in our imagination and paintings, when we think about how God looks and or how his Son looks. Everybody wants God/his Son to look like them. We want God to be an American, a Old man, a being walking around in sandles or even clothes for that matter(clothing would not be for a spirit). We want him to be our Genie in the bottle when we want something, we want him to support our definition of Love to include homosexuality and fornication even though his word clearly stands against it. We want to redefine what a wife and or what husband is because our country and TV says so. We want him to think about our kids like we do when we allowed kids to choose whatever they want to do and basically raise themselves without the rod because society says so. Or best yet, they create a God that says that he wouldn’t punish man for the sins much less sentence them to the lake of fire. They stand up with their chest out and claim boldly, as if it matters, that they wouldn’t want anything to do with a God that sends people to such places. As if their opinion or stance to not serve him really makes a difference to what he declared already or removes their sentence. All these things and more paint a picture of two different God’s. The one most churches and people have created. And the one that is spoke about in scripture. The true God is sovereign, he is the one that destroyed nations of people because they didn’t obey, the one that brought plagues on men, woman, and even killed babies because of the sins of people. The one that defines love as Pure, not mixed with lusted for sexual desires, and or any other act taking place outside from that marriage between a real man and real woman. Yes, this is the True God Yeshua spoke about as his God and Father. He is just and yet he is the judge. He will rule heaven on earth in the end and upon that unification he will seek to make those against what he is and what he defines as right to suffer forever. This isn’t the pictures painted in churches because they are afraid of offending people in the churches that are living with their boyfriends and girlfriends, having homosexual relationships, dressing and dancing around like prostitutes and yet CLAIMING the name of “Jesus” on Sunday. Their defense is to claim others can’t judge them. But the word can and based on the word, the God they claim to serve that is ok with these things is not the same God of the Bible nor the one Christ obeyed as his God and Father. So ask yourself, did God create us in his image or have we created a God in ours? Is this why he says “get away from me, he never knew you”? Maybe the reason is that you were woreshiping your created God thinking that this was Yahweh, when it wasn’t.
Movies are very deep at time. Sometimes they can bring out memories that remind you of many things. One of my most favorite movie series, The Matrix, has some of the most memorable moments in them. This picture is one of those moments I apply to my spiritual life. Basically, Neo returns to the Orcle after his rebirth. He has been told that he will do amazing things and he has even experienced amazing things. Most importantly, he no longer doubts who he is anymore. But unknowingly he is given information that he rejects. He is told he will have to understand why he chooses rather he dies or someone else does. The choice is already seen and made, he just has to understand why he made that choice in the coming days. Neo’s answer is that he won’t do that. But the Orcle says he has to because he is the ONE. And if he fails then Zion, the last human city and home will fall. This is what all of us should feel when we are tested. Choices lay out in front of us. Those choices normally have clear consequences that we sometimes choose to ignore but they are there none the less. We tell ourselves we can avoid those consequences because we think that we won’t fall or get caught. We are wrong on both ends. The possible consequences to the wrong choices are always more likely to happen than not making that choice at all. You can never know how things will end but the Bible’s guide to what to avoid reigns paramount. The more you align your life with what is just and holy, the better off you will be. Traps are laid everywhere around you by spiritual forces and evil dominion. They use all things and anyone, even you, to help bring about death to something that has life in God. Remember this, because each of us are The ONE in our lives. We have to make the right choices if we are to save what God has granted to us to be a good steward over. If not, then our home and city, “Zion”, will fall.
