BELIEVING WHAT GOD ACTUALLY SAID/SAYS

One of the problems most people, namely mainline, institutionalised denominationalists have when reading the Bible (and there is only one Bible – the Authorised King James Bible) is the fact that they do not believe what God ACTUALLY SAYS.  A certain number of Calvinists a few centuries ago didn’t believe what God said, so they changed it to suit themselves and their circumstances:

For example in Genesis 12:

“Now the Lord had said unto Jan Van Dyke, Get thee out of thy country which is Holland, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land called South Africa  that I will shew thee:

And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

Now, if you are self-righteous and believe the Bible to be a magic book that needs to be “handled correctly” you would probably be having apoplexy right now because “I have the nerve to change God’s words or the Bible”, yet this is what most people do every single day of their lives, hence the reason why most incorrectly apply Israel’s Old Covenant to themselves and take Israel’s Covenant promises for themselves too.

So the main reason for Jan Van Dyke’s current problems from his personal perspective is this:

2 Chronicles 7:14:

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

His people, the chosen ones have turned away from God to wicked ways.  Remember:  Calvinists see themselves as the few chosen by God (limited atonement).

Jan blatantly does not believe who the book of Chronicles was actually written to:

2 Chronicles 7:1-3

1 Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the house.

And the priests could not enter into the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord‘s house.

And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

The only other option remaining which rightfully explains why these people believe as they do is Replacement Theology, i.e., they think they are Israel or the “new Israel”, but I have encountered various others who state, “God was talking to the Jews who are people, the Gentiles are also people, so this applies to them too”.  But WHERE in the Bible does it state that God made a covenant with the Gentiles or Gentile nations in times past?

They believe they are chosen as Israel was.

In Ephesians 2:12 the Apostle Paul is clear when he says that Gentiles had no part in Israel’s covenant or the promises related to this covenant.

One cannot change God’s words to suit oneself, and if you do not believe what God said/says then you are obviously in……….. unbelief.

Unbelief is shown when one has to change scripture or omit scripture or ignore scripture or wrest scripture.

The Bible is sharper than a two-edged sword which means if you believe it as it is written and take scripture in its rightful context and apply that which is meant only for you, it is your friend, but if you change God’s words and wrest them, it becomes your enemy and condemns you.

Believe and apply the word rightly divided, including the grace gospel = friend, reconciled to God, saved, justified, sanctified, approved unto God, glory, eternity.

Unbelief, wresting scripture, bible blending and believing good news meant for another dispensation = enemy, punishment, suffering, lost, hell, regret, wailing.

A two-edged sword.  Something that causes both advantages and problems.  And the Bible is sharper than any two-edged sword.

A TRANSDISPENSATIONAL TRUTH:

Hebrewas 4:12

12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

 

 

Do it your way or Do it God’s way?

This is the result/outcome of men who don’t recognise, admit or believe to being sinners living in a sin cursed world, men who are Christ deniers, unbelievers – reprobates.

“Fix the problem/s yourself – DIY” :

“Move beyond polarization and the focus on “good vs. evil” and “us vs. them.” Consider the possibility that all of us are doing what we believe to be right based upon our beliefs, circumstances, and upbringing. Each of us has a place in our heart that wants only to love and be loved. As we focus less on blaming and judging “them” and more on supporting the highest motive in all people – including members of the power elite – we increasingly come to see that we are all one human family, and that we can choose to transform our world by working together for the good of all.”

Saw a billboard along the freeway on Friday morning stating, “JESUS LOVES YOU”.   What came to mind?  Unbelievers in general thinking, “so how come the world is in such a mess if Jesus loves you?”, New Agers thinking, “they (christians) profess Jesus loves everyone, but they cannot even get on with one another?”, “war in the name of christianity, namely the Crusades, so where’s the love?”.

Marshmallow Christianity with an extra thin skin who gets offended if you type in capital letters (to emphasise a point).  Marshmallow christianity which seems to be offended by Christ’s death for one’s sins (all of them),so they have to repent of them instead, offended by His burial (time to wallow in the quagmire and weep because He was crucified), offended by His resurrection (apparently they found His body recently, besides God had to assist Him in the resurrection process too whereby He had to have faith in God to do so, otherwise He would’ve remained in the heart of the earth…).

Of course, it’s all part of the religious’ gospel, i.e., He loves you, so in turn you need to love Him in order to be saved….   It’s nothing short of a performance-based gospel – you must DO something in order to be saved, and in this instance, you must love Him.  A total contradiction to what is stipulated in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (for salvation).

Question :  Does God love sinners, those who are opposed to Him, His enemies, or does He offer amnesty to His enemies who are sinners in this current dispensation, giving them a chance to be reconciled to Him, in order for them to be His beloved purely by faith in the word of reconciliation, namely the gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, otherwise known as the word of truth mentioned in 2 Timothy 2:15 and Ephesians 1:13?  Keyword :  RECONCILING, present tense, not RECONCILED which is past tense.  2 Corinthians 5:19 : GOD’S MERCY CURRENTLY IN ACTION.

In a disagreement or war, does the winner love his enemies or does he offer them amnesty to become reconciled to him in order to love them?

Will a loving God send those He loves to hell for eternity?  No.  So who does He actually love then?  Marshmallow christianity cannot discern between love and amnesty/mercy.  You were once my hell-bound enemy, but because you have faith in what I did for you, you are now my friend, my adopted child, accepted in the beloved. You are now reconciled to me, hence I now love you.

The world, reprobates, Christ deniers, sinners – unbelievers, believe the solution to man’s sin nature and a sin cursed world is diversification, also known as “the new paradigm” which doesn’t hold to the fact that there is good and evil, but believes rather in “supporting the highest motive” in all people.    The more things change, the more they stay the same, why?  Because man’s heart is just as wicked and deceitful as in the past, i.e., the Tower of Babel.

How ethical and righteous or upright/righteous are man’s motives or highest motives in his natural, sinful spiritual state? Jeremiah 17:9 – The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

This is the very reason why people will always let us down, because their hearts are deceitful above all things and desperately wicked.  The politician you voted for to “make things better” – guess what?  His heart is deceitful above all things and is desperately wicked.   But the religious believe that people need to glorify God, sing praises to His name, do good and be non-judgmental when it comes to doctrine and the ways of this world, not to mention be non-judgmental when it comes to those saved people who conform to this present evil world.

  • Trusting Christ (and you don’t know according to which gospel) doesn’t and won’t save you. 2) Believing in Christ won’t and doesn’t save you.  Believing He exists, won’t and doesn’t save you.  3) Trusting in your “faith” won’t and doesn’t save you either.  Self-reliance won’t and doesn’t save your soul.

Trusting what He did for you on Calvary’s Cross and believing He was raised from the dead on the third day saves your eternal soul.  Why?

Because belief/trust/faith in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, i.e., Christ’s payment for your sins is the unique requirement or stipulation for one’s salvation in this current dispensation.

Let’s look at the various beliefs as stated above :

  • To most, the gospel has become “trust Christ period”.  Question :  Trust Him for what/based on what? To be your Lord and personal Saviour?  In this instance, can you please confirm this with scripture?
  • Believing Christ exists doesn’t save your soul either. Even the devils believe that He exists, and they aren’t saved.
  • Trusting in yourself (what you can do) to be pleasing in the eyes of God, like worshipping Christ (as a religious pew warmer) won’t save you.

He did it all – so you trust what He did for you.  What did He do for you?  He died for your sins (past, present and future), He rose from the dead on the third day.  He was buried – which confirms (a) that He died, and (b) that He resurrected.

The inanity of “trust Christ” (according to what?) propagators is rather limitless.  What are they trusting Christ for – think about it carefully…… for their salvation?  According to what?  – trusting,  future (receipt thereof), unlike those of us who have TRUSTED Christ – past tense, who have received it (past tense), and who are currently standing in that salvation (present tense) because we have TRUSTED (past tense) – they are still trusting Christ (present tense and ongoing).   Makes one think, doesn’t it?  Isn’t that why mainline, denominational, institutionalized Christianity has an ongoing, performance based gospel?  Because they are still trusting, whilst we have TRUSTED and received it (salvation) and are standing in it (present tense).  We own it, they are still busy trying to own it.

The “I am trusting Christ” (according to which) gospel propagators don’t believe the gospel saves, they believe it’s Christ that saves.    So in effect what they’re saying is that Christ denies the saving power of His very own work on Calvary’s Cross, in tandem with His resurrection for men’s souls to be saved when they have faith in same.  It’s like saying, “We believe in the person, but not what He did, what He did isn’t good enough to save us, but in effect what He is saying – “believe what I did for you”, so in their need to look super righteous, they change the gospel that saves men’s eternal souls –  “Paul said it good, but I say it better”, not realizing that Paul’s words are God’s words, i.e., that of the ascended Christ Himself.  One cannot improve on the ascended Christ’s words.

If only people would believe the Bible instead of making up their own half-baked theories, especially concerning salvation.  “Trusting Christ” sounds very righteous and upright……… as well as hypocritical and…….. lame-brained.  Much of the same people also believe that unsaved people who haven’t heard and believed the Gospel of Christ (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) aren’t headed for hell because God is just and loving and will take this point into consideration when it comes to their eternal fate.   Chapter and verse please, and 1 Thumb-suck 3:10 just won’t hack it.

I’m still trying to find out where in the Bible it states that God wants us to have a personal relationship with Him in order for us to be pleasing to Him and for Him to save our souls.  If anyone knows, please inbox me the appropriate scripture according to the Authorised King James Bible in context.  Please note : 2 Imaginations 5:10 won’t cut it either.

Oh, how I cringe when I think back to the pew warmers turning around and telling me, “Jesus loves you” – like that made everything right – finally – happy in the knowledge that I was saved – not.  I was still a hell-bound sinner, good for nothing, not worth the dynamite that could blow me straight into hell.  My question used to be :  How does one love Jesus?  By telling Him so, or by showing Him?  I tried to show Him, but I always fell horribly short of His holy standards and so I was caught up in a rollercoaster of non-stop guilt trips.  How does one love Jesus when you’re always feeling guilty?  In the end you either think He is a hard task master, or you think you’re totally useless and devoid of attaining human perfection, after all, what type of unction disappears after the rose coloured glasses have faded because you are the one measuring your “righteous” works, and by whose standards?  Your own.  Who is saving you, or trying to save you?  You are.  You cannot attain to Acts 2:45 in this dispensation, no matter how hard you try or try to convince yourself you’ve given all your wordly goods to the poor…….. and in fact you are following Christ according to money grabbing, self-righteous, mainline denominational, institutionalized preachers who themselves don’t practice what they preach who fail to rightly divide the word of truth and mistakenly apply Israel’s Hebrew doctrine to themselves.  Wannabe replacement Jews who try to keep the law, not realizing that there are 613 commandments and not 10, who think being dunked in water makes one sparkling new again.  I often used to meditate on this fact when I was a sinner – I didn’t feel any different after coming out of the water, I still thought the same, did the same things, behaved the same – nope, H20 cannot save your soul.  I was still as biblically illiterate as I was before I was immersed and then ceremoniously declared saved.  Wishful thinking.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son…….” The world under the Jewish Prophetic Programme whereby lost Gentiles had to prostelyse to the Jewish faith/Law Programme in order to be saved, where Christ was and will be the Messiah/King of an earthly kingdom, a world where both the Levitical and Mosaic Law held sway, and will be in effect once again in a future time.  A programme that has been interrupted by the Dispensation of the Grace of God, where we are under grace, not the law.  We are currently living in this time.

God gave His only begotten Son….. as the perfect sacrifice as opposed to the imperfect and continual sacrifices of lambs, goats, bulls and doves under the Levitical law, He is to be a sacrifice whereupon Jews will lay their sins and ask for forgiveness while they endure to the end.

God loves His creation, it is unique.  He didn’t create this world for it to be destroyed by the devil.  He is merciful and wants men to be in His will, to be reconciled to him – saved – on His Godly terms, not by anything any man can conjure up, no matter how good or respectful it sounds.

It’s God’s will that you become reconciled to Him.

Which part of…..

…… 1 Timothy 2:12 do some not understand?

I do not want to teach men, I don’t see myself as a teacher neither.

I am studying, and as much as others learn (or maybe not), I learn too.

I’ve always made notes when studying – I cannot study without writing or jotting down notes – my hands have to be kept busy, even when watching the IDIOT box.  I can’t sit still like a zombie and read – then I’ll fall asleep.

So if anyone wants to pass a snide comment and state that “she thinks she’s a teacher”, seriously dude – NO.  Stop being simple-minded.

It’s all about motive – some come on here to “spy out my liberty” lol – that’s become a cliche, others come here to criticise, others come here to check out my grammar and spelling lol, while others, think I’m anti Mid-Acts, others do not have a cooking clue what this blog is about – like I get replies, “John 3:16 isn’t the gospel????” Which shows me some do not know how to read, or perhaps it’s actually because men who are still in the flesh are unable to discern spiritual things.  Others come on here to garner something to gossip about……….. and gossip they do, but………….. tell someone who cares.

Me thinks I is the chagrin of many a male chauvinist out there – they cannot stand me.  Tell someone who cares…….. My life isn’t driven by men’s opinions or who likes/doesn’t like me.

Anyway, back to what I was saying :

But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

The silence part belongs in a church assembly, and since this isn’t an assembly of saints, and I’m not the Pastor – it doesn’t fit.  Nice try, but no cigar.  I’m not a butch feminist by far – I’m feminine, quietly spoken and shy, I wear dresses, I have long hair, I wear make-up and paint my nails, I can cook and bake, but I can also fix things around the house, and I’m very independent.  So suck it up buttercup.

So the feminist/butch women thing does fit in instances where so-called ordained ministers of certain “churches” have a “flock”.  You know, of sheep – that kinda says it all, and the so-called ordained minister is a woman.   When the so-called female ordained minister takes authority over men – guess what happens?  You get many a very unhappy man who feels he has been cuckolded and emasculated to the highest degree.

But in today’s politically correct society where “women are equal to men” – I guess this could well happen :  (in a very perverted sense, that is) –

1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

Since everyone has now come out of the closet, and it’s perfectly acceptable for those of the homosexual persuasion to be ministers and pastors of apostate churches, it goes without saying that some women could well be the husband of one wife, and they are.

Unsaved, religious people who behave and look the part of Christians, who speak like Christians, whose flesh “is saved” according to their own “good” works, working themselves into heaven on a daily basis, praying to a God they don’t know (because if they did, they would know His will for today), unsaved, religious people who have money, power and authority in a world ruled by the god of this world.  It fits.

The irony of it all today is, the unsaved religious pray more than actual saved people, although their prayer is totally warped – asking for the wrong things, praying the wrong way.  No-one knows how to behave better than an unsaved, religious person because they believe their behaviour gets them into heaven.  My jaw fell to the floor when one stated that if you do not behave the part (of a Christian), you aren’t saved.

That’s the best way to control people – knock them on their behaviour and watch most of them fall in line.  It never worked with me though, I did exactly the opposite, so they reckoned me hopeless.

These people are in total bondage, everyday is a struggle to become a “better person”.  And they fall at every turn – imagine the guilt.  I know.  Been on many guilt trips in the past.  The truth is, they will never get it right because they don’t have the unction.

Imagine sitting your entire life in a church, praying, giving to the poor, sipping wine and munching on a wafer, repenting of the bad things (you remember doing), giving up alcohol, stop smoking……… and you land up in hell for eternity.

That’s the truth, and people need to hear it.

I remember giving the gospel to someone and their answer was – “it’s not so simple, and no I cannot believe that by just having faith in Christ’s finished work on Calvary’s cross and His resurrection will save me”.

“There’s got to be more to it…….” which inevitably believes – one has to work, but some see it as hard work (and rightly so), so they couldn’t be bothered as they want to enjoy their lives – go on a pleasure cruise now and die later and hope for the best when that happens.

Simple faith.

Simplicity in Christ

in a crazy, messed up, difficult, evil and complicated world.

 

 

 

 

Input / Output

Why those who hold to an empty Jesus theory are akin to the Jehovah’s witnesses :

The empty Jesus “theologians” say the Lord Jesus Christ  gave up His deity attributes, and the Jehovah’s Witnesses say Jesus wasn’t the Son of God, but only an angel

They have a lot in common.

It stems from building a *theory from a **theory.   A *blatant lie from a **perverted Bible version.  That goes without saying.

Not only do perverted Bible version dumb down right division – the Berean Bible Society is  proof of this, but perverted Bible versions also dumb down the deity of Christ.

There are those who state that a person can be saved from reading and believing 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 in a perverted Bible, but I ask, what Christ are they believing?

A Christ who needed assistance to rise from the dead?

A Christ who isn’t God?

A Christ who didn’t want to be God?

A Christ who didn’t know about the mystery until it was given to Him to  reveal to the Apostle Paul?

How do you think holding onto a perverted Bible version is working out for you?

Do you think people who are saved by another Jesus, are in fact saved?

Denominationalists are adamant that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He is God, and that He was God in the flesh during His earthly ministry,

denominationlists who aren’t saved believe that, denominationalists who are ignorant of the word of truth rightly divided,

yet some Mid-Acts Dispensationalists who think they’re superior to denominationalists don’t believe it.

Makes you think, doesn’t it?
