No abuse is acceptable.. Zero tolerance

Abused! How much abuse is acceptable? None!

Abused! How much abuse is acceptable? None! If you are being abused do not hesitate ASAP to expose it to all, to call the police, human rights courts, news media.

.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. (1 Cor 13:3 KJV)

Matt 32:29 You shall love your neighbour as yourself.. and that means you will do him no harm now too.

.

And who are these abusers? why is is that they so readily abuse others now too? They tend to be persons who have their own value system, and clearly also a lack of love for others, and a lack of love for their jobs now as well. In case you did not notice it I do not accept any physical, verbal, mental, human rights abuses by anyone of anyone and I rightfully do instead demand their full, open exposure and public prosecution now as well and no matter who they are, Prime Minister, Premier, MP, MNA, MLA, MPP, Doctors, lawyers, cops, pastors, etc..

.

Yes Abuse is something we all often encounter and do not know how to deal with it? Well do not hesitate to call the police, the news media and report it..

.

1 John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

Romans 3:13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

1 Corinthians 13: 1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

James 1: 19    Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20    For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 21    Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22    But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23    For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24    For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25    But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26    If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27    Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

1 Peter 3:10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

Abused. One of my most often written about subject on the net.. even whether it is verbal, mental, physical abuses now too..The abuser too often tries to make the victim look as they are guilty ones, and that too is always unacceptable http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/05/17/abused-how-much-abuse-is-acceptable-none/

‘Now we all do really have freedom of religion, freedom of choice, freedom of speech, the right to be heard now as well.. I clearly do believe in the right of everyone to speak, to speak out as well, and to be equally heard by all, so we can all judge what has been said if it is appropriate and we can next corresponding act upon it, even in the church, in the government, on the internet now too. Clearly some bad people falsely still DO DISALLOW THIS RIGHT… the really bad persons especially as even I know this for sure as they falsely refuse the whole to be shared even as   to who they are firstly. They respond with a personal attack, inquisition, censorship, lies, slanders, diversions, distortions, instead of facing, dealing with the facts, truths being presented. Confirming to many what they still are really like, immoral, abusive bullies. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2012/04/11/now-about-the-abusers-bullies-thugs-proud-oppressors-war-mongers/

.

There are many types of Unacceptable abuses too. Recently in a five month period I had almost daily encounter with geriatric hospitals and old age homes and I was shocked NOW OFTEN to find out that there were poor, pretentious, inadequate hospitals and bad old age homes, in contrast with the well managed, kind, decent, effective, good  hospitals and good old age homes, and I started to wonder why there was such a glaring, vast difference.. and of course “money the root of all evil” had come into the pictures, for those managers who were more concerned about making more money, getting a raise, PROMOTION, advancement,  now also  too readily allowed the patients to be wrongfully abused!     http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/07/07/controlfreaks

.

Did you know that sibling rivalry, abuse is one of the most common forms of family violence? Siblings will use physical violence because they have learned it from their parents, a bad mother or a bad father,  or other adults. In fact, one study found that 76% of the children who were repeatedly abused by their parents also abused their siblings.. and their spouse next too

.

Abused. One of my most often written about subject on the net.. even whether it is verbal, mental, physical abuses now too.. ironically some of the people claiming that someone else has been abusing them has been the major abuser themselves and that is why they are so conscious of the other persons supposedly abusing them.. another case of one’s need in dealing with the beam in one’s eye over the toothpick in the other persons eye.. often notice the opposition political party accusing the governing party of abuse when they now also have done the same thing ?

..

One of the thing that has caught me by surprised were the proposed solutions for the abuse.. some were really unacceptable, such as accepting the abusers and merely forgiving them when God himself does not.. anyone doubt this, look at God’s Punishment of the Apostle Paul specially for his past abuse of the Christians now too.

.

Acts 19 10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. 11 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, 12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight. 13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: 14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. 15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: 16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.

.

I  also do know from observing others that anyone’s abusing a Christian can lead to one’s early death. I have found the best way not to get abused anymore is to rightfully not to associate with the abuser anymore, after exposing their abuse to them and others, till they really do repent of it, and a clearly Biblical approach according to the Bible  Book of Corinthians now too. They cannot hit you, abuse you if you are not there. As simple as that

.

“Coptic Christians & Persecution. 6 days ago, Coptic Christians in Cairo experienced an attack while protesting restrictions that have been put on building churches as well as protesting an attack on a church in southern Egypt. My daughter’s friend, Sarah, a journalist, had an eye-witness account of the event as it occurred at a large building that houses Egyptian radio and television, Maspero. Her account brought tears to my eyes.http://communicatingacrossboundariesblog.com/2011/10/16/coptic-christians-persecution / .

Yes sometimes it is ironically some of the people claiming that someone else has been abusing them has been the major abuser themselves and that is why they are so conscious of the other persons supposedly abusing them.. another case of one’s need in dealing with the beam in one’s eye over the toothpick in the other persons eye.. often notice the opposition political party accusing the governing party of abuse when they now also have done the same thing ?  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/11/why-does-the-canadian-government-try-to-sleep-with-the-murderers-because-of-the-oil-still/  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/10/17/the-continually-bad-rcmp/

Verbal abuse is always unacceptable too. So are the Bullies now too.

Everyone needs to set boundaries on what is acceptable behavior. No verbal abuses, no bullying, no lying, no foul languages, no hitting or other violence should be allowed. Another step parents can take to prevent abuse between siblings is to model their own respectful behavior in your family. Children learn how to interact with others by observing them.

Hate and Verbal abuse unrestrained often next do lead to physical abuse. Hate, Verbal or physical abuse is always unacceptable too. So are the Bullies now too …

Now I too have learned the great secret in helping bad people to personally repent or to change their wicked ways.. the public exposure and the demand of their rightful prosecuting, dismissal of the same wicked persons, as well as their bad superiors, and generally best done not by a phone call, but rather done in writing, with many copies to the right parties, news media, ministers, elected officials and the general public next too even such as those you do eventually see on my web blogs

Beware always of men and women, bullies, tormentors, control freaks, persons, civil and public servants, politicians, pastors, leaders, elders, who falsely do, will try to enslave you, oppress you, exploit you even while they claim they are proclaiming the truth, democracy, trying to help you, etc.,

Is 51:23 ..your tormentors {and} oppressors, those who said to you, Bow down, that we may ride {or} tread over you; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to pass over.

I have learned a long time ago that public exposure and prosecution of the abusers serves everyone’s best interests

Here also is what I know for sure, the older the person is the more extreme, more severe, the more difficult the punishment has to be on them to cause them to personally to change in their own negative ways, for they are too set in them now too.

The WRONGFULLY STILL Unrepentant bully’s problem is that he or she is one of those bad persons who only feels truly alive when voicing hostility and contempt for his “enemies.” Without that, he or she starts gasping for air. It’s his nature.. self-destructive” .. clearly these immoral Bully, Basher of others, Abusers of others has a disappointed, deflated ego, negative self worth, most likely related to past unresolved guilt, as a result of that the bully, he or she, tries falsely to build their ego up by bashing, hating others, by being an antagonists against his proclaimed enemies, which too often also is most people , for he or she no longer trust anyone, and Abusers this is a common very typical approach, fact in the character build up of Bullies, Bashers, but their approach is futile, the subsequent feeling of self worth dissipates too quickly, are actually replaced by guilt, and his ego, self worth likely needs to be recharged with new hate.. and is replaced with more and larger hatred of the others. I have seen this type of wrong behavior not just in bad managers, bad politicians, bad persons, but in alcoholics, and most often in Albertan rednecks ,but also in religious fundamentals evangelicals who promote hated towards Pentecostal Christians as well, and now as well as the crooked pastor wrongfully fighting for control over others. Public exposure and prosecution of these bad persons here too services everyone’s best interest.

ONE OF THE MOST COMMON, POPULAR TOPICS, SEARCHES ON THE INTERNET is can a Christian next get divorced and remarried, and the simple answer is no! but wait do not stop reading yet.. if you are married, living to a demon, a control freak, a liar, a lazy good for nothing abusive person then please now do immediately get out of the marriage, do get an immediate separation.. and this not the kind of advice you would expect from a preacher of peace and love, but I am telling you all this for our own good, and you can thank me later.. and maybe next the still good for nothing bum, lousy spouse, he or she will wake up as to what she is really like and they may try to get help to change herself, himself.. but meanwhile don’t feel guilty about the peace you now have in your life.. By the way make sure first you are not the creepy, a good for nothing spouse yourself otherwise by your actions you will be doing your own spouse a great, great service. http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2009/04/03/throw-the-bum-out/

Isaiah 35:1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. 2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God. 3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. 4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you. 5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. 7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. 8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. 9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: 10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Hearing the word of God more effectively is always possible too

 

1 Sam 3:10 And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth. 11 And the LORD said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle. 12 In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house: when I begin, I will also make an end. 13 For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not.14 And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli’s house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever

.
Yes we are all to listen to God, his voice, and his word.. But it starts with reading the Bible daily.. we can find desire and time for many other activities but not time to spend with God?
..
2 Cor 13:9  For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection.  10  Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction.11  Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you. 12  Greet one another with an holy kiss.
.

Many people say we should only read, hear God’s words in the Bible, even cause the rest of the time they are actually, falsely doing their own thing even… they really also cannot still hear God’s direct voice, even leading to them.

.

Some people seem amazed that God can, and will now speak to his children, given the proper conditions being met, but me I am often amazed how is it that so many people cannot hear God, as to what un-confessed, un-repented of sins are obstructing their relationship with him now.. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/01/21/god-speaks/

Wrongfully the Evangelical Christian movements of today is a powerless gospel movement rather, for it still tends to have none of the rugged reality of the Word of God of the New Testament about them in reality. There is nothing about them that needs the personal application of death of Jesus Christ. The need of Dying to self now is rarely mentioned. All that is mostly required is a false religious walk, of a pious atmosphere, prayer, and devotion. This type of experience is no longer marked by the supernatural nor miraculous. This new age Christianity it did not avail itself yet of the cost of  the sufferings of God, nor is it stained with “the blood of the Lamb” (Rev 12:11 KJV)  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.  The rather new  Evangelical Christian movements, or mostly religious empire building are also clearly marked by a dearth, the visible absence of the direct mention of the word of God itself, rather indirect  reference are only mostly still made to the Bible and verses, and the actual meat content is replaced by the mere words, views of mere men.   It is also wrongfully  not marked or sealed by the Holy Spirit as being a genuine personal work, and it is no wonder then it has no visual personal evidences, sign that causes people to exclaim with awe and wonder, “That is the work of God Almighty!” The New Testament in reality is still centered about the  awesome, continual work of God in individual’s life and in the Churches. So no wonder the Evangelical Christian movements of today so often does not have the empowerment to draw men to God, Jesus Christ.

.
The clear, definite. exemplary, undeniable  New Testament example of a valid personal Christian experience, life  is that of a personal, passionate commitment, devotion, following  to the Person of Jesus Christ marked by a loyalty to the word of God. Every other kind of the false Christian experience is wrongfully now detached from the Person of Jesus. Where there is no regeneration— no being personally born from above, born again into the kingdom in which Christ lives and reigns supreme through the word of God, the Bible. False Christian portrays Jesus Christ is being only  an optional pattern to follow. In the New Testament Jesus Christ is the Savior that lived  vividly and in reality long before He is the supposed mere  pattern. Christ  He is being falsely portrayed as the figurehead of a religious movement— another mere example. He is that, but He is infinitely more. He is still our personal salvation from hell itself; He is the living, embodied gospel of God!

.
Jesus said, “. . . when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, . . . He will glorify Me . . .” (John 16:13-14  ).

When I committed myself to accepting the revealed truth of the New Testament, I then had receive from God also the gifts of the Holy Spirit, who then begins also interpreting to me what Jesus  said, did and is. And next he Spirit of God, Of Jesus Christ himself  now lives also in me.

Many have heard the words of God directly

.

(1 Sam 9:27 KJV)  And as they were going down to the end of the city, Samuel said to Saul, Bid the servant pass on before us, (and he passed on,) but stand thou still a while, that I may show thee the word of God.

(1 Ki 12:22 KJV)  But the word of God came unto Shemaiah the man of God, saying,

(1 Chr 17:3 KJV)  And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came to Nathan, saying,

(Mark 7:13 KJV)  Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

(Luke 3:2 KJV)   the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.

(Luke 5:1 KJV)  And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God,

(Luke 8:21 KJV)  And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

(Luke 11:28 KJV)  But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

(Acts 4:31 KJV)  And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

(Acts 6:2 KJV)  Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.

(Acts 6:7 KJV)  And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

(Acts 8:14 KJV)  Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:

(Acts 11:1 KJV)  And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God.

(Acts 12:24 KJV)  But the word of God grew and multiplied.

(Acts 13:5 KJV)  And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.

(Acts 13:7 KJV)  Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.

(Acts 13:44 KJV)  And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.

(Acts 13:46 KJV)  Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.

(Acts 17:13 KJV)  But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the people.

(Acts 18:11 KJV)  And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.

(Acts 19:20 KJV)  So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.

(Rom 9:6 KJV)  Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:

(Rom 10:17 KJV)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

(1 Cor 14:36 KJV)  What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?

(2 Cor 2:17 KJV)  For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

(2 Cor 4:2 KJV)  But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

(Eph 6:17 KJV)  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

(Col 1:25 KJV)  Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

(1 Th 2:13 KJV)  For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

(1 Tim 4:5 KJV)  For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

(2 Tim 2:9 KJV)  Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.

(Titus 2:5 KJV)  To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

(Heb 4:12 KJV)  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.

(Heb 11:3 KJV)  Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

(Heb 13:7 KJV)  Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

(1 Pet 1:23 KJV)  Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

(2 Pet 3:5 KJV)  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

(1 John 2:14 KJV)  I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

(Rev 1:2 KJV)  Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

(Rev 1:9 KJV)  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

(Rev 6:9 KJV)  And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

(Rev 19:13 KJV)  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

(Rev 20:4 KJV)  And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

I was really saddened to note

http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2009/08/15/bible-versed-scenic-wallpaper/
 
Now as I was reflecting about my many past posts on the net  in the last few years I was really saddened to note that too many of them were about bad , greedy people trying to steal , trying to get other people’s money for themselves, stealing the money, or getting  it under false pretences. The love of more money is still the basis of what many of the wrong doings is, was all about..
 
(1 Tim 6:10 KJV)  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11    But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. 12   Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
 
 
(Psa 37:16 KJV)  A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. 17  For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
 
(Psa 119:104 KJV)  Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
 
(Prov 4:5 KJV)  Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
 
(Prov 4:7 KJV)  Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
 
(Prov 16:16 KJV)  How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
   
 Telling lies, half truths is too  too difficult, for you have to remember the lies you had said, and the truth as well, and most people cannot do that , thus they rather do as a result go crazy.. So Me I do not write to please men or women, to be politically correct, and I prefer the truth to deal with, write the simple truths, I also do readily share the good things I have learned freely.
 
(Eccl 8:1 KJV)  Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man’s wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed.  2  I counsel thee to keep the king’s commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God.
3  Be not hasty to go out of his sight: stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him.
4  Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?
5  Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man’s heart discerneth both time and judgment.
6  Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him.
7  For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?
8  There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
9  All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.
10  And so I saw the wicked buried, who had come and gone from the place of the holy, and they were forgotten in the city where they had so done: this is also vanity.
11  Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
12  Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him:
13  But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.
14  There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; that there be just men, unto whom it happeneth according to the work of the wicked; again, there be wicked men, to whom it happeneth according to the work of the righteous: I said that this also is vanity.
15  Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun.
 
Here are some of my most favorite or most read posts
 
 
(Prov 22:16 KJV)  He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.
 
(Prov 23:5 KJV)  Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

 (Prov 11:4 KJV)  Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.

 
(Prov 11:28 KJV)  He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.
 
 
Here is what I know for sure in Canada proper policing, management ,  supervision  human rights commissions are a real fact of life, society, in schools, life,  in churches, governments, commerce, institutions, civil and public services, professional services too,  and elsewhere, even on the net,  for you will always have those 30 percent at least of the persons who will try to cheat, lie  , steal, bend the rules, falsely believe they are above the laws, Self  regulation alone is too often pretentious, farcical, often not applied as well. That applies especially to the professionals, civil and public services, police, municipalities, politicians now as well..

Friendship

 
 
WE ALL HAVE CERTAIN BASIC NEEDS that do need to be met…
 
Including food, clothing, shelter, activity, exercise, friendships, medical services… (Mat 6:28 KJV)  And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: (Luke 12:24 KJV)  Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? (Luke 12:27 KJV)  Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  (2 Tim 2:7 KJV)  Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.  (Heb 10:24 KJV)  And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:  (Heb 12:3 KJV)  For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
 
Now as I was praying for some of my own personal needs to be met God next had replied “I have provided everything you need right where you live”. So I opened my eyes to what God has provided and made use of them.
 
  (Psa 37:23 KJV)  The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
24  Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
25  I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
26  He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
27  Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
28  For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
29  The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
30  The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
31  The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
32  The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
33  The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
34  Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land:
 
BEING A GOOD FRIEND AND HAVING ALSO A GOOD FRIEND ARE ESSENTIAL NEEDS IN OUR EARTHLY  LIFE. Getting merely more money is a very poor substitute for friends too.
 
MANY SINGLE AND MARRIED PERSONS ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THEIR LIFE, RELATIONSHIPS, AND THEY OFTEN DO COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW THEY ARE BEING TREATED BADLY BY OTHERS. AND I HAVE FOUND IT VERY HELPFUL TO ASK THEM TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION FIRST ” DO OTHER PEOPLE GENERALLY TREAT YOU NOW THEY WAY YOU DO TREAT GOD? AND HOW DO YOU REALLY TREAT GOD, IGNORE HIM, AVOID HIM, ARE INDIFFERENT TO HIM?”
 
And yes there are also  bad people in the world, bad friends, people who merely try to abuse us, rib bad steal from us to try to fulfill only their own needs, will, wants ,desires.. People who oppress us, slander us, lie to us as well. Such people will tend to do us no good and we need to stop wasting our rime and not associated with them anymore and replace them with good people.
 
(2 Cor 1:4 KJV)  Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. 5  For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
 
When trying to help others I do always try to speak first from my own valid, real past personal experiences. I try to put myself in the other persons shoes, but often even I have been there even years before them,  and I try to adequately relate to their needs from my own past similar experiences what I have learned.  I try to to also give them  Biblical, and GODLY solutions. Now  even my own life, experiences I have wasted much time, effort tying to help other persons by mere;y listening, talking to them, counseling them, for it is only when I do add the word of God, when  I do rightfully do refer them to God,  who has the sole real solutions even in helping them with all of their problems, do I next see immediate, valid results in my helping them. Many persons do have unrepentant sins, poor values, errors in their ways, even unresolved personal needs in their own  lives even cause they do personally have also their bad parental and/or upbringing, cultural hang ups, and they here are encouraged by the devil and others to continue do this. They do wrongfully  follow their false upbringing, the false cultural traditions and  they thus are easily predictable now, next in their subsequent still bad behaviors here too. That even includes the area of “friendship”. Do they even falsely accept still everyone as a friend that comes along and listen to them as well? Or can they stand on their own two feet and make proper, valid value judgments? Some people foolishly try to deny they can be understood, seen for what they really are still too. They are even  still lost, confused on the road of life.
 
(2 Cor 3:2 KJV)  Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: 3  Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart.
 
Let us get a straight,  good understanding, a good path and let us really Look first at what the Bible also says about true and good friendships here with me now. It is important to do so as well now.
 
(James 2:23 KJV)  And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
 
(John 13:35 KJV)  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. 36  Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards. 37  Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake. 38  Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.
 
(Luke 11:5 KJV)  And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; 6 For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? 7  And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee.  18  I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.
 
One’s True love and true friendship are also evident not in mere words but by one’s real, daily personal acts.
 
(John 11:11 KJV)  These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
 
(John 15:13 KJV)  Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends
 
(John 15:15 KJV)  Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
 
(Acts 10:24 KJV)  And the morrow after they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen and near friends.
 
(Luke 15:9 KJV)  And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.
 
(Mark 5:19 KJV)  Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
 
(Luke 12:4 KJV)  And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
 
(John 15:14 KJV)  Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
 
(Acts 19:31 KJV)  And certain of the chief of Asia, which were his friends, sent unto him, desiring him that he would not adventure himself into the theatre.
 
(Mark 3:21 KJV)  And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.
 
(Mat 22:12 KJV)  And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
 
(John 19:12 KJV)  And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar’s friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
 
(Luke 14:10 KJV)  But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
 
(John 3:29 KJV)  He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
 
(Acts 27:3 KJV)  And the next day we touched at Sidon. And Julius courteously entreated Paul, and gave him liberty to go unto his friends to refresh himself.
 
(Luke 15:29 KJV)  And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
 
(Luke 7:6 KJV)  Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:
 
(Luke 23:12 KJV)  And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.
 
(Luke 14:12 KJV)  Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompense be made thee.
 
(Luke 16:9 KJV)  And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.
 
(Mat 20:13 KJV)  But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
 
(3 John 1:14 KJV)  But I trust I shall shortly see thee, and we shall speak face to face. Peace be to thee. Our friends salute thee. Greet the friends by name.
 
There you now do have it, almost every New Testament verse on friendships.. but now what does it really all mean now to us? Reread these verses and note the term friends..
 
“It is always nice to talk to you and to also hear from you as well”.   Many persons firstly do not understand that when we do love someone we openly talk to them. The opposite is also true when we hate someone we tend not to talk to them. Want to know if you really love or hate someone? How often do you talk to them? And how often do you talk to God now as well? People often do say that  the greatest need on earth is the need for more communication, more openly talking to each other.  In reality the greatest need is first for each one of us to have God’s forgiveness and love, and to practise more love for God, as well as more love for ourselves and next real love for the others firstly. When we really do love someone we tend to talk even more to them, and  yes we still tend not to talk to those whom we do not love. The more silent persons   often do tend now not to be the loving kind of a person, but self centered, greedy, introvert. And what are you like? It is never too late to change now too for the better. (Prov 27:5 KJV) Open rebuke is better than secret love. (Prov 27:6 KJV) Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

I too can tell if someone loves me, for they do also now want to often to talk to me. I can also tell when they stop loving me.. they stop talking to me.. and they do also treat God, Jesus the same way.. they also do not talk next  to Him cause they no longer love Him now too.  (Rev 2:4 KJV)  Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5  Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

(Prov 27:8 KJV) As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.

“You notice I do talk to you often, and in full love,  and I love you at where  you are”.. because that is how God now loves me. He God also has the time to talk to me, to love me as well.  Because God He loves me, I do thus love you, others and I am also try to be yours and their good friend as well. So do I also now love others also because I do love to love others. So should we all now too. Start talking also to God today. Pick up the phone, the Bible as well and listen to him.

(1 John 4:19 KJV)  We love him, because he first loved us. 20   If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

(Ruth 2:13 KJV) Then she said, Let me find favour in thy sight, my lord; for that thou hast comforted me, and for that thou hast spoken friendly unto thine handmaid, though I be not like unto one of thine handmaidens.

(Prov 18:24 KJV) A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

Speaking of being a good friend with God too, my past devotional messages to some persons are a little  blunt, but they are simple saying that  God wants us all to be mostly firstly in the Word of God itself, and not in the bad books, and/in in the bad literature, bad useless, wasteful medias too, and He God also does not want us following after the rather bad pastors. after the bad persons or following after the world, the flesh, the devil.  Sadly there are too many of bad persons  even in the evangelical Ministry, Churches today who basically, really are imposters who do not follow God with their whole heart as God demands they do as well now. Are you different from them now? or going to be different? Be in God’s words as well daily.
 
I myself  do have to walk also with God all day,  to be able to hear his sweet words,  and to write his truths to you , all of you too.  I like you cannot be worldly, walk in the world and then next sit and talk easily to God and write his truths. (Mat 6:24 KJV)  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.  Chose who you want as a feeing God or the world? Truly You also cannot love the World and God.
 
(John 6:63 KJV)  It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
 
(1 Cor 13:3 KJV)  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity (the love of God), it profiteth me nothing.
 
(1 Tim 4:8 KJV)  For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
 
(1 Cor 16:22 KJV)  If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
 
(1 John 2:15 KJV)  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
 
The World, the flesh and devil here on earth also always do work to distract us from the more important things that we should be doing now, the good things we should follow, such as even  being personally kind, loving to others, and our own real need to continue to follow solely after God and not mere man.. Otherwise we wiki never find true love, true happiness, true fulfillment as well.  He the devil often as well sends to us daily even non Christians,  bad  persons, the so called friends  to try to distract us too from where we should be, from what we should be lie and doing.. and are you on guard for this too, aware of this? and this has been still my latest prayerful personal concerns for myself as well as you. To follow after God, his truth, and not the world and the devils bad ways, lies.  
 
God does have  a very specific daily will and plan for our life, and the devil will try both to detract us from that will, or try to depress us, so that we will not want to do God’s will even by means of evil spirit and the bad persons too.  And God’s will also includes under God’s leading  finding one of God’s lost sheep, and helping also the other lost one by all of the valid means too.

Distraction or depression  are now very sinful, and  lead to more unnecessary big problems in many of  our lives.  Many true, good prophets have also felt depressed, all alone, ironically even at the peak of their careers, and felt a lack of adequate relationships with God and men, and do also note this much of this was due to the demonic harassment.   We thus are distracted not only with God, distracted in  our need of the personal reading the Bible in the morning,  in our continual  praying  but now are also distracted in our doing  many  other things, such as work, studies etc., And  we can supposedly be falsely depressed with God for not being our true friend in all of this as well? Or are we rather the ones not his true and faithful friends in reality firstly too?

Heavenly Father I pray in Jesus name that you would now reduce, remove from us, and from our loved ones, all of those evil and distracting spirits, the birds of the air, that do come along and do steal the good seeds, good things that  that God has already sent to us.

(Mat 13:3 KJV)  And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:

(Mat 8:21 KJV)  And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 22   But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

Yes  sometimes our too easily being distracted can also be a symptom of another major unfulfilled need of ours. a sign of our own basic loneliness still, the root, basic cause of our  real depression underneath? For when our basic valid needs are not being met we all still do  tend next too easily to divert our present tasks and tend to wander and search rather for their fulfillment, often not knowing even what that unfulfilled need is.  We still have not only a God shaped vacuum and  may  still may really need  a really good earthly friend?  I again do use the term good friend first..  for as we all do need to be aware there are really are bad friends too.

There are various types of friends and even various levels of friendships supposedly too?

(Mat 7:15 KJV)  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Our body is physical and it is also spiritual.. and we all do need to first to talk to God in heaven, our creator too,  but we also do  want some human persons to talk to next too.. we want to also be appreciated and loved in Heaven but also now here on earth.. Truly though we really cannot have one without the other.

A good friend is like a good brother, like a good sister, where you don’t have to even talk to them in full, they do really know  you, and they really do appreciate you.. even like the past friendship of David and Jonathan that they had  with each other.  (1 Sam 18:3 KJV)  Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul.

King David he also had liked and appreciated good personal relationships too. Good friend are  closer than a brother or a sister,  or as good as one.. but do also note that God still even here seems to give and take away our friends now as well.. and we have to learn to accept it as His will too. (2 Sam 21:14 KJV)  And the bones of Saul and Jonathan his son buried they in the country of Benjamin in Zelah, in the sepulchre of Kish his father: and they performed all that the king commanded. And after that God was entreated for the land.

 It is great  when God sends to us a close friend, a good friend, and is often sad, sad when God next also takes them away. I too now have had many friends and lost many too, and so did King David. Even the disciples themselves had lost Jesus temporarily as their friend and they next became really depressed rightfully about it too. 

 

Note we all do get abused too.. see http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/07/16/abused/   One of the thing that bothers me about allowing someone to walk over me, to verbally abuse me, is where do I draw the line next, put a stop to it.. so I tend to stop it as soon as I see it instead…not a door mat to walk over.. one of the best ways is to have nothing to do with the abuser anymore.. God does not want you to remain in an abusive marriage… nor in an abusive church, or with an abusive pastor as well.. In the first week I was in a new church I immediately saw that the pastor himself was an abusive, control freak pastor and I did not remain there too long.. I have seen a whole city of proud, abusive pastors, who felt that they could not be touched, till I had arrived at God’s request.. Once publically exposed next even the government acted quickly to pull their tax free status, stopped their right to issue donations receipts and the door of the worst church now was closed forever.. all of the pastors were laid off too.. Public exposure and exemplary prosecution of the unrepentant guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest.. “Those whom I love I chasten and rebuke as well”  God does not want you to remain in an abusive marriage… and God will make the door at the right time for you to leave it as well.. trust Him.

  

 But no, no close friend can ever compare to the Lord Jesus Christ himself. Not one here on earth too.. NOT EVEN YOUR SPOUSE, BEST EARTHLY FRIEND.

(John 15:5 KJV)  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.  (John 15:16 KJV)  Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

God ALWAYS wants to fellowship with us, but we still do have to personally allow it, exercise our own free will in this matter as well.

(John 10:27 KJV)  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29  My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and my Father are one.

Jesus always still wants to be our closest friend, and He does want  to be our friend, to talk with us, and for us also  to talk with Him firstly as well,  and also next to talk in love with the other genuine, good  believers.  

(Luke 6:33 KJV)  And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34  And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35  But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

(Gal 6:10 KJV)  As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

(Eph 5:11 KJV)  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Sadly some Pastors, Elders, deacons,  Christians are also still friends wrongfully with the bad persons. This itself is unacceptable to God. I have also too often been stabbed in the back  even by bad Pastors that I had even myself considered as being one of my best friends too. They were unloyal and really bad friends rather too. Jesus himself was betrayed by Apostle Judas .But Jesus he still knew from the beginning he was not a good friend .

(Mat 7:16 KJV)  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these  My brethren, you did it to Me.” (Matt 25:40)

Good friends will treat you differently from the bad friends.

(Ruth 2:13 KJV)  Then she said, Let me find favour in thy sight, my lord; for that thou hast comforted me, and for that thou hast spoken friendly unto thine handmaid, though I be not like unto one of thine handmaidens.

(Prov 18:24 KJV)  A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

The very first Church that I had joined as an adult, had become a member of, the Church Pastor there  said to me personally that he extended the right hand of fellowship unto me. I assumed rightfully he meant that would be a Christian brother, a Christian friend to me. I next asked him openly what he meant by that expression. He the pastor next said to me that he did not know what it meant. Wow he had lied to me with his cheap  words. To him in reality  I was to his friend only if I helped him to get what he wanted and that so often seems to be the case with the too many bad pastors even now that I have encountered… and I have had encountered many such bad pastoral friends.. persons that are not a godly friendship nor still is this wrong behavior of theirs an acceptable Christianity. 

Coming back to good Friendship..

It is also great to work for the Lord but it is also great to have good close Christian friends, and not to solely have some local   friends too.. there clearly is a difference between a real Christian and a non Christian person.  You should also by now know that sex outside of marriage and supposedly real love are  not the same thing.. so as well good and bad friends are not the same thing.  Sadly some bad people still cannot really still love others.  The Church also is is not a building, it is not merely a community of people, a social club of peers,  that has become also now a fundamental foundation of the denomination next. A community of people can be made up of communistic persons  or capitalist persons even made up of of non Christ like persons as well.. and that itself is not enough, nor is it a church.

You also do need to meet people who can love you, can manifest real love, and you can love them and that is what a good church is, not just another meeting of supposedly Christian believers, and not merely a Church building, for  the true  church  it is to be  a real place of persons really showing love one to another.  

I now have had friends like that in my church . They were, are really are loving, generous people. I had good brotherly Christian friends in university and  in IVCF where  If I had said let us go to the chapel cause I do need to pray about my needs.. they gladly next went with me to pray.. no questions were even asked why as well. They were good, true Christian friends.. friends who really loved me. I have had good Christian friends at my secular jobs as well.  I have often prayed that the people at my work would also become my best Christian friends, and next it often happened too. I also helped to make the persons into real Christians often at work and some of them became really great Christian friends, at least for for a while till they had moved elsewhere.

When God called me to be a direct shepherd and I got my first  flock  I was really really surprised now that I loved everyone in my church equally, even all persons at the supposed different age levels I still could love all of them  and relate to them equally, without partiality too, and they now also knew it.  I loved them all as God loves us all, individually, equally, and it was great for both  of us too

Take for example the shape of the Cross.. it has a horizontal and a vertical dimensions and it shows to me the different levels of friendships that we seem to have theses days too. Friendship with God and others, friendship with peers, and others.  The prophets for example personally  also can like to be with other prophets, their equals, but they also like to be with the Pastors, their subordinated, and with the Apostles their superiors, as well as with many other persons. They the prophets tend to have earthly Christian fellowship at 4 levels at least to start off with but the friendship  is still all in true Christian love at all levels too.   With some people you are at a heavenly level, with some others more at an earthly level, and with others at an equal level.. for you do not have the same level of relationship with everyone and you thus cannot of course but you do show them the same love.

Being friendly and being a friend is not the same  thing. I have had often relationships with various different people I do not know and some of them become instant close friends with me from day one day, by God’s direction, and we loved to talk together about the Lord too.  While other persons sadly  could never be counted to be any kind of a close, true, real friend but I show them all the same love of God. God also want us to really now love others, and not just be friendly..

I  also do like it when people show love beyond words as well.. even such as when a good friend takes me out for a great free dinner or we go on a trip together. I am blessed by his dinner offer but also now more by his real love. I really really loved to go out and eat with my good friends,  to take them also to my favorite eating palaces too.  Jesus often, often ate with his friends.  I do myself do buy even food for them, or take them to the restaurant  or go with them to clean movies, or take them for car rides too  I also go for a walk with my friends, work with them, and visit them at their home. Many people are often surprised when I offer to go with them, walk with them anywhere.. they  do thus realize it is me showing God’s love to them.. Some people still have never known, seen God’s love sadly as well.

(Luke 24:13 KJV)  And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.14  And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15  And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. 16  But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. 17  And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad? 18  And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days? 19  And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: 20  And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. 21  But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. 22  Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; 23  And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. 24  And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not. 25  Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 26  Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? 27  And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. 28  And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further. 29  But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. 30  And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. 31  And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32  And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

Each one of us do need now close good personal relationship in our life, but not always full time but occasionally at least, and I do still will even rightfully  to let God work it all out. Talking openly with someone and them  letting  you to talk openly is refreshing.. it is real love..  We all mostly  do not have really good friends for we seem to rather have too often mostly familiar persons and not true, good Christian friends. Try to be the kind of friend you want others to be for you as well.

A definition of a good friend is someone who you can ask him or her to do something with or for you,  and he or she  does not even hesitate, nor does she  or he ask what is in it for me? they are unselfish, they do what was asked of them immediately  too. Jesus himself is such a good  friend, He will do what we asks if it is in the will of God , and He asks nothing in return cause he did it for us. He expects us to do what he asks as well..

I  met a person on the street for the first time, I next talked to him for two hours, and now we even do often as well write to each other.  There was an immediate relationship. It was God ordained.. and it went along with my normal activity. God had wanted me to show him love, to also help him with his real business problems  too. God firstly always still has to make that good and true friend come to life. Choosing who we want as our friends tends to be a bad approach.

With real good Christian friends no time  is really needed  to start the friendship   for love and friendship  is a choice of our own will and it it can be  an immediate friendships where we merely chose to love them and they chose to love me, or you..  but sadly also they can chose not to love me or you as I can chose not to love them wrongfully too…   Many people are friendly.. but they still really do not love you, they do rather  treat you as a stranger, and not as a daughter, as a  sister.. and even in the Church sadly, unacceptably.

A good friend loves us at all times too. They talk to us, listen to us, help us at all times. Compare this to the so called friends who really are just undesirable bad friends, bad persons. Very few people  around us do now want to even  love you and me, do want to understand you and me..for  they are still in reality mainly selfish, living in sin.. and also do believe me when I say that loads of people when I got to really know them I next had  wished that I never had met them too. Most people do not want even any more friends, they  supposedly have enough, they selfish care only about their own family members,  or they have their own agendas first to be carried out…. and thus we may have to find someone who needs a friend but we  also do need to be personally willing to be that friend to them.. and to do the associated work in our friendship too. To next also to be personally in their homes.  

(Prov 14:20 KJV)  The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends. (Prov 19:4 KJV)  Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.  (Prov 19:7 KJV)  All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth them with words, yet they are wanting to him.

There is a great personal difference in our own life when other people do start to love us,  when they do tell us they love us.. even persons starting from ages 1 to 90  or more.. I have had many people unexpectedly love and accept me immediately.. many many times.. and it was not cause I was  friendly..  but rather cause they themselves were really loving persons.  A really  good Christian friend is actually a replacement for a father, mother, brother, sister, it is an immediate and a close relationship.. You and I need a good God given friend in our lives because that is what God wants for you too.. that friend firstly is Jesus.. but do you also do what he asks of you? and I also do  like have good friends, good food, good clothes, etc.,  good and not the bad rather.. 

 Not all people are loving.. they chose not to love sadly as well.  I still cannot fully even understand why they all had chose this sad life.. it was their wrong choice to do so.. life is what we choose it to be.. I chose Jesus, Joy, Happiness.. so I now I do have it too. People do make the wrong and  bad choices even  for selfish reasons. Other people do make the good, right choices. Many of my recent devotions end with the rightful thought, I chose to serve, praise the lord, to follow him.. God respects our free will choice. Make the right choices. Have Jesus as your best friend too.

It is also for me still immoral and very wrong that many pastors do not make home visits. Jesus loved to be in his friends  homes too.  (Luke 19:5 KJV)  And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. 6  And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.

(Psa 119:61 KJV) The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not forgotten thy law. 62  At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments. 63  I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.

and all that  is my choice

 Some would agree and say “I need to love others more, that’s definitely something I need to learn.” While some persons still do nor know what he or she really is looking for too.. even to love others and to be loved too..

Some persons would say ” Yes, I have lots of friends who have done that for me.  I really feel blessed for them, considering I seldom return the favour, I think that area of me needs some work on some more”or rather firstly may God give you the money  and the love to do it as well.”. It may not be just the gift of  generosity that you need but the will to say I will to do it.. to Say Lord I will do it, be a friend to you and your people too and  help me to do it.. (Gal 6:7 KJV) : for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. I too have to make an effort to be friendly, to stop working on the computer to answer the door and say hello to a friend. I tell myself when I do it is is worth it for me too — sometimes I do have to overcome my desire to be by myself, and actually go and meet others

 Like I said before I want God to arrange the good friend(s) for you always.   I do  like it better that God selects and makes the friends I should have for me..  I know that you have your own agenda for life.. but God has his own too.. he God has to work it out

There is a time for everything  (Eccl 3:1 KJV) To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;3  A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;4  A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5  A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6  A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

A time to love.. and a time to be loved… and a time of peace.. quietness.. goodness..

All to Jesus I surrender, all to Him I really Give… All… all my thoughts, all of my will, all of my goals, inclinations, desires too, was my last devotion too.. but  also (Eccl 4:9 KJV) Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. and that speaks to me of a good friend  and (Eccl 2:24 KJV) There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.

And that includes eating with our good friends, and we can all undo bad habits by being nice in the future, we can learn to do good from our mistakes and should.

It is best that we let God do it all . Do let God lead you there..  Do first Pray he will arrange for you to have good Christian friends and it often comes from  unexpected places and in God’s timing too. Friendship is more about work than emotions, or feeling good as well. When we really do love someone and really show it, manifest it with good works we will next feel good about ourselves and about the the other person as well.

(James 1:23 KJV)  For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24  For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25  But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26  If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. 2:1    My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. 2   For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3  And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: 4   Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?

(Prov 17:17 KJV)  A friend loveth at all times,  (Prov 18:24 KJV)  A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.(Prov 27:6 KJV)  Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

 Heavenly Father I pray first that You become our close friend and that you will talk to us in love.. let us also know how much we are loved by you, even by others,  appreciated by you first,.. let us  also rejoice in all of this.. and nothing, nothing makes us more happy than being happy with you, in talking with you.  Nothing.  I pray also that great things will happen today, now , this week, this month, this year for you as well, for you too and I would like you also to have a  good, even a new, new real Christian caring friendship  group where your faith can grow more too,  where your faith can thus even grow some more too.

 I want you to love others, and to beloved by others too.. you and I do deserve it.

In my lifetime I have heard many many lazy persons complain that they had no  good friends, because real friendships means doing also some real hard work.. something they immorally did not want to do still.. Friendship with God involves work and personal sacrifices as well now.  Jesus used to visit  the people’s  homes for this reason. and I also did as a pastor..  Jesus loved Mary, Martha, Lazarus, but he also loved to be in their home too..  I often went to the person’s homes  just to love people in their homes even without preaching anything too.. even just to be a father, a brother for them.

You really, really still cannot be a friend with an Unchrist like  person.

(James 4:4 KJV)  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
 
(Mat 26:47 KJV)  And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people. 48  Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast. 49  And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him. 50  And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.

(Luke 21:16 KJV)  And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.

I hate being Luke warm or cold rather I like being committed and committed fellow sheep. I do not like to chat with unbelievers… not at all.. I do not talk to Christians who do not want also to talk about God, their walk, about others, brothers and sisters in the lord too. if I  cannot have true Christian fellowship then I stop talking to the person.. I have lost 1/12 of persons of of my devotional list for that reason.. it was a one sided relationship and to me this is not normal, unacceptable, just another Judas.  If we  don’t chat with unbelievers… how do they come to Christ if we don’t talk to them? Well you and I cannot bring one person to Christ.. not one. When God wants you to chat to them about the lord.. then he will send them to you or send you to them.. and guess what they tend to have great computer problems and need a computer expert like me or are really depressed and need a good depression counselor like me.. then I talk to them also about the Lord

For me general chatting also with unbelievers to me is a waste of time.. I hear God’s voice and he tells me with whom I can talk to and with whom I am not to talk to as well.

(Psa 1:1 KJV) Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

I rightfully do not even want  to talk to my own twin brother if he does not want to also talk about the Lord.. My friendship with God is my best and highest need and priority.

I have also  already converted some unbelievers with chats, human logics, my better arguments.. and they became intellectual Christians who went the road of hell next.. God did not touch their hearts.. so I have learned my sad lesson.. if the heart is not ready to repent.. if the soil is bad.. I  am no longer  there. I go elsewhere to the better ground..  I also do now it’s better to live a godly life than any words that I can manage

You all that I write to do already have a shepherd’s gift.. you too  are looking for the lost sheep to help them… let God make it easier for you.. ask him to lead you to the lost right sheep and do always ask God to lead you in all things still.. me too Yep, it all boils down to that, really… my  devotions have made it pretty clear. God knows who will come to Him and He uses us as His ambassadors. God made that clear to us, he makes things simple for us.. we are not trying to reach the whole world.. but his one lost sheep that he God cares about to send us too.

(Rev 21:4 KJV) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

(Isa 54:1 KJV) Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.

(Isa 62:4 KJV) Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married. 5 For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.

I agree. I’m glad I’m in Christ, there’s nothing better than Him. Nothing at all on the whole earth that is better than Him.. talking to Him…  nothing at all.

 I pray Heavenly Father in Jesus name that you will lead us in the right way, help us  to make all the right choices, to do thy  will,  and help us  to find all of your love daily as well…

Spending money on good friends is worth it, spending money on bad friends is a waste of resources.

(Luke 15:6 KJV)  And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

ALSO ONE OF THE MOST COMMON, POPULAR TOPICS, SEARCHES ON THE INTERNET is can a Christian marry a non Christian or can a Christian next get divorced and remarried, and the simple answer is no! but wait do not stop reading yet.. if you are married, living to a demon, a control freak, a liar, a lazy good for nothing abusive person then please now do immediately get out of the marriage, do get an immediate  separation.. and this not the kind of advice you would expect from a preacher of peace  and love, but I am telling you all  this for our own good, and  you can thank me later.. and maybe next the still good for nothing bum, lousy spouse, he or  she will wake up as  to what she is really like and they may try to get help to change herself, himself.. but meanwhile don’t feel guilty about the peace you now have in your life.. By the way make sure first you are not the creepy, a good for nothing spouse yourself otherwise by your actions you will be doing your own spouse a great, great  service.  

 PS
 
-Actually  when I go from city to city I find some cities demonic and I can basically  have no fellowship with anyone.. and I next also have been to a great city    that had living Christian church too, a great community.. such is real life,. good bad bad places too.
 
-and many times I have lost good , great fellowship because 50 percent of all once loudly professing Christians will next consciously, deliberately fall from the lord into the world, the devil’s arms too.
 
– Still In one city I am praised and in another city place, I am hated, and the reaction is more reflective of the spiritual condition the people I am with and not of me
 
-Also when I prayed to God where was the place of most demons I next had expected an answer of nightclubs,  strip bars but God replied to me Hollywood and the TV, more demons come from there , Now TV with profanity or porno is putting one foot into hell..
– Sometimes when God wants us to move to another place he causes unrest for us in the present place… that is why you need to learn what his will is for you. The best way to do this is to say Jesus speak to me, I will now read your Word non stop  until you fully speak to me about my concerns..
 
– I have learned long time ago I cannot take hold of life, have control of it, keep it the way I had it in the past, keep it the way I want too.. I surrender it all to God.
 
– I can say with my whole heart that the worst possible things that have happened to me in my life, and there were many next had turned to be the biggest blessing in my life when I gave them all over to God..
 
– When I am troubled I merely sit and pray and pray and pray till I have or see the answer
 
– I have been married but next also also alone   Jesus and me is fully sufficient.. I need nothing else with Jesus being first in my life.
 
– If your relatives or friends, acquaintances are still non Christians than you cannot them now to any  Biblical standards.. no matter what he or she does they  will go to Hell now anyway.. so rightfully  give them up to God to deal with and to judge them..  and  often I pray God they are yours, deal with them the way you want next, now.. while I will go on with you.
 
May this help you too..

You can run but you can’t hide

A good name is worth more than silver or Gold, and a tarnished one is worthless, but also very painful; generally.. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves everyone’s best interest. I too had learned decades ago that the pen is mightier than the sword of the crooks, bullies, pretenders, imposters. Starting at the top is always the best way now too   http://mediamyopic.com/2008/12/16/foreclosure-facebook-style/   

Hey I admit it I hate crooks, the bad guys

– I dislike the bad cops and Bad RCMP in Canada
– I dislike all bad Professionals, bad civil and public servants and their too often poor managers now too
– I really dislike Bad Politicians, especially ex PM Paul Martin, Stephen Harper
– I dislike rightfully bad Pastors, and all alcoholics now too
– I have always disliked bad, crooked computer dealers too..
– I really also dislike Bell Canada rightfully as well and the CRTC..

We in Canada also  still do need real accountability, and the real beefing up of the enforcements, regulations against the much too many con artists liars, thieves, crooks, imposters, pretenders. being basically motivated by greed, increasing the profits. Bait and switch,  Misleading advertising, Unfair and Restrictive business trade practices seem to be a common thing in the Internet Service Providers  industry too, especially since generally the ISP are unregulated both by the Courts and the governments. It is a sad reality that even what is advertised is also next what the customer next consistently gets. “  The first biggest unacceptable bad culprits still who need to be fired ASAP are those rather toothless, pretentious, federal and provincial consumer Ministers and their mostly bad subordinates. Healthy Competition was supposedly a good way to decrease  the prices and increase the services, but instead we get price fixings, unfair and restrictive trade practices.. which still all reminds me of the bad immoral Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper trying to murder all of the opposition  out of existence too.. for he himself is no better as a leader, example of ethics, morality too. We do need still  a new real,  tougher cop on the beat. to strengthen all business, financial regulatory agencies and crack down on runaway “greed and scheming” , to really clean up the worlds of politics , finance, business and really  help to put in help put in place new, common-sense rules of the road that will protect investors, consumers and our entire economy from fraud and manipulation by an irresponsible few caused also by a  lack of “adult supervision” and  managers not being    as aggressive as they should in properly managing subordinates, others. Conservative  and Liberal governments administration’s laissez-faire philosophy is also  allowing excessive risk and corruption at the highest echelons and also by too many people with a false disdain for regulation. We need more activist regulatory approaches,  no-nonsense regulators. Too many of these crooks are still governed by a mentality governed by the principle that, “whatever is good for me, I do.”  Behave Honourable or you will be fired, terminated message  needs to be to apply to a range of social, physical, financial, governmental  institutions — and to individuals across right across the board. A real  restoration of a sense of responsibility, personal accountability  and the notions of  advocating beneficial values not just for ourselves, but what’s good for the others, the country as a whole, operating in reality out of a sense of what is being done is for the common good , Our too often poor Regulators do unacceptably “drop the ball,” and have failed to crack down on the bad culture of greed and scheming, to take seriously their own responsibility to “operate honourably.  The CRTC also itself has not put much of a dent in fraud, abuses,  and the entire system needs an overhaul. The CRTC also has missed too many red flags in its oversight of it’s duties, responsibilities..

“You can run but you can’t hide. This week a court in Australia ruled that social networking sites are an adequate medium for mortgage lenders to notify borrowers that they’re losing their homes. Barry Schnitt, a Facebook spokesperson, reportedly told news outlets that, “we’re pleased to see the Australian court validate Facebook as a reliable, secure and private medium for communication.” Schnitt may want to re-think his enthusiasm, as people are already crying Big Brother. But social networking users are rather naive to have ever thought these sites would serve strictly social purposes. First came the advertisers, then media began citing the pages as legit sources, employers followed suit, and now colleges are evaluating personal profiles in the admissions process. Once we disclose personal information in a public realm, albeit a virtual one, the public has little recourse in claiming rights to privacy.”

In the name of Jesus

Over the years I have learned personally the application of these verses into my life
 
(Psa 25:15) Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
 
(Isa 54:17 KJV)  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
 
(Psa 1:1 KJV)  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3    And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
 
(Psa 1:3 KJV)  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
 
(Psa 122:6 KJV)  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
 
(Eccl 11:6 KJV)  In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.
 
(Isa 53:10 KJV)  Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
 
(Acts 3:6 KJV)  Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
 
(Acts 16:18 KJV)  And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
 
(Isa 55:11 KJV)  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
 
Now when I seem to almost weekly encounter a demonic obstacle, I merely rely on God by his Holy Spirit to help me, to work on my behalf and as well if need be, tell me where to go and what to do. I merely in faith  start in prayer to God on the subject and wait upon him for instructions. I also tend to pray in Jesus name and I bind, dissolve, render totally useless all the effects of any demonic acts, plots, effects as well.

The centraility of the cross of Jesus Christ

 

Here is the sad AND UNDENIABLE reality merely do ask any Mormon, LDS,  Morons, Others,  if they have actually read the Bible itself, read now the only true Bible, read and studied fully both  the New and Old Testament, and not the other books they claim God wrote, and they likely still will tell you they have not rather, studied, never mind applied the Bible, they have mainly heard someone else’s version of what is in the Bible and that is why so many people are lost, church people even now even confused about GOD, JESUS, THE HOLY SPIRIT AND WHAT THE REAL BIBLE ITSELF ACTUALLY SAYS NOW TOO.

“The cross of Christ is clearly central. In a great post on the nature of the gospel, C.J. Mahaney points out that while the gospel is the “good news of God’s saving activity in the person and work of Christ” (a definition he borrows from Jeff Purswell) it focuses more particularly on the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. And more specifically still, he asserts, the gospel is summarized by the cross–”For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” 1 Cor. 2:2. The resurrection is essential, for without it the cross’s message would be pointless, but the cross is where the gospel is seen most clearly.

The cross, then, proclaims the message that God became man to take upon Himself the punishment for our sins. Further, the perfect and righteous life of Christ–the God Man–enables God to give us the righteousness of Christ graciously and freely. This transaction occurs to those who believe on Jesus Christ and is wholly of grace and not in any way deserved by man. The cross shows the seriousness of sin–in that God would sacrifice His own Son because of the weight of our sins; and it also shows the magnitude of God’s mercy–that God would offer up His Son for us who in no way deserve mercy.

Further, the cross is seen as central in that it is the pinnacle of history, for it is the ultimate display of God’s glory–which is the ultimate purpose for God’s creation and all of its subsequent history. (I would encourage you to check out my friend Nathan Pitchford’s “Meditation for Good Friday” posted over at Reformation Theology Blog which deals with the centrality of the cross in all of history.)

But the cross is not only central to our faith, it is singular. Or rather it should be. What do I mean? Look at these verses:

“For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” (1 Cor. 2:2)“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” (Gal. 6:14)

The cross–and the Christ of the cross–should be our single treasure, our single pursuit, our single love. Every boast should only be in the light of the cross. Our only boast should be the cross. John Piper put it like this:

“Only boast in the cross of Jesus Christ. This is a single idea. A single goal for life. A single passion. Only boast in the cross. The word “boast” can be translated “exult in” or “rejoice in”. Only exult in the cross of Christ. Only rejoice in the cross of Christ. Paul says, Let this be your single passion, your single boast and joy and exultation.” (from pg. 49 of Don’t Waste Your Life–available as an online book here)

All of life should be viewed through the view of the cross. And as Piper points out later in that book, we can only boast singularly in the cross when our lives are crucified by and on that cross (notice Gal. 6:14b). Everything we do should be as a result of or a reflection of the cross. C.J. Mahaney points this out well in his book The Cross Centered Life. Our struggle to be pure in this world and our struggles to provide for our family–every aspect of our lives is touched by and should be shaped by the cross.

Let us aim to appreciate the centrality and significance of the cross of Christ, and endeavor by God’s grace to make it our single affection, joy, and boast!

 On the issue of THE CROSS and Mormons too ..

MORMON’S FALSE  OPPOSITION TO THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST AND WHAT IT STANDS FOR

May it never be that I should boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ (Galations 6:14)

To the Christian the cross represents salvation and eternal life, because it was there on the cross that Christ atoned for our sins. It reminds us of the awful cost of our redemption, and of how much we owe the Lord Jesus Christ, who is our hero, our Saviour and our life.

However, Mormon women do not wear a crucifix as jewellery. And the LDS will not permit a cross to be displayed anywhere on their premises. Strangely, seeing they insist that they are Christians, they don’t display any of the other symbols of Christianity anywhere on their premises either. Instead, the inside of their temple is decorated with Masonic/pagan symbols, and the external masonry with pagan, occultic and satanic symbols. (As a matter of interest, the cross is never featured alongside that type of symbolism because they oppose one another.)

Because of the  unbiblical LDS teachings Mormons are taught that they have to earn the right to the forgiveness of their own personal sins through obedience to LDS laws and ordinances, good works and a virtuous life. So they can never be sure whether or not they will eventually make the grade. And this diminishes the work of Christ in their eyes. Consequently, they could never ever be beholden to Christ in the way that Christians are. Nor could they ever enjoy the same saving relationship with Christ as do Christians.

Almost None of the LDS doctrines are biblical. Nor do they bear any resemblance to Christianity. In fact their teaching on the atonement opposes the foundational doctrine of Christian salvation, as preached by the apostles in the primitive church. For this reason Mormons cannot even begin to imagine the joy, freedom from guilt, peace of mind and overwhelming gratitude that accompanies the Christian’s assurance that Christ Himself earned the forgiveness of “my sins” when He bore my penalty in my place, that day on the cross at Calvary. Nor do they realize the utter devotion to Christ that is part and parcel of the Christian life. To the Christian the cross represents salvation from sin. It reminds us of what Christ achieved on our behalf, as well as of the tremendous cost to Himself.

THE REASON FOR THE CROSS

Contrary to what the LDS maintains, the cross wasn’t merely a weapon that was used to execute Christ. It was on the cross at Calvary that Christ defeated Satan, sin, death and hell, and earned our salvation (c/f John 12:31-33). So in the mind of a Christian, the cross is symbolic of all these things.

Furthermore, Christ wasn’t merely “killed,” as the LDS puts it. He went to the cross of His own free will and voluntarily laid down his life for the specific purpose of earning our salvation from the consequences of sin. He could have turned from the cross at any time. But instead He deliberately set His face steadfastly towards Jerusalem, knowing full well what awaited Him there (Luke 9:52). Then He gave His life on that cross, in our place, as our substitute, to pay the penalty for our sins, as was fore-ordained and so graphically illustrated in the “pictures” provided by the Old Covenant sacrificial system.

Throughout the Old Testament God has used the picture language of rituals to explain hard-to-understand concepts that were to become part and parcel of the coming New Covenant of Grace. And salvation from sin through a substitutionary sacrifice was one of these important concepts. You will find a more in-depth explanation of this fascinating topic in the article, “Baptism, Salvation and the Use of Biblical Symbolism,” a lead to which is provided for your convenience, at the bottom of this page.)

Christ’s whole purpose in coming to earth had been to sacrifice His life on that cross at Calvary, so that we could be set free from the stranglehold of sin. And moreover it was the will of God, as foretold by His prophets in the Old Testament.

Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man take it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again ….. (John 10:17-18, KJV) (Italics inserted by writer.)

To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. (Acts 10:43, KJV)

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. ….. (Isaiah 53:5-6, KJV)

And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. (Acts 8:30-35, KJV)

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3, KJV)

And you, being [spiritually] dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; (Colossians 2:13-14, KJV) (The writer’s italics.)

… Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree (1 Peter 2:24, KJV)

 One can’t help but wonder what the LDS  motivation is in teaching these false doctrines, as they will not be found anywhere in the pages of the Bible, no matter how long or hard you search. On the contrary, the above scriptures very clearly tells us that Christ atoned for our sins on the cross at Calvary.

Christ was fully aware that His suffering and death on the cross was the terrible price He would have to pay to cancel our debt of sin. But He voluntarily and selflessly chose to go through with it, for the likes of us:

Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. This he said, signifying what death he should die. (John 12: 31-33, KJV).

(Christ said:) And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. (John 3:14-15, KJV)

From that time forth began Jesus to shrew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. (Matthew 16:21, KJV)

And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem (Luke 9:51, KJV)

THE CHRISTIAN’S ATTITUDE TOWARDS THE CROSS

The church I attend has a large cross behind the pulpit, with a crown of thorns resting on it. Hanging down next to it is a banner that reads, “He died for me”. This is very effective in stimulating sincere and fervent worship. And every time I enter the church, I am deeply humbled at the sight of that cross. It reminds me that the best, the bravest and most selfless Person ever, suffered and died for me, in my place, because of my sins. And my heart fills with gratitude. But that is just why the cross is there. It is to remind us of who we are, who Christ is, what He did for us, and how much we owe Him.

Mayer Pearlman had this to say concerning the Christian’s attitude towards the cross of Christ: “The cross is the dynamo which generates in the human heart that response which constitutes the Christian life. ‘I’ll live for Him who died for me,’ states the dynamic of the cross. The Christian life is the soul’s reaction to the love of Christ. The cross of Christ inspires true repentance …..” (Knowing the Doctrines of the Bible, Part Two)

CHRIST’S SHED BLOOD COVERS THE SINS OF ALL WHO TRUST IN HIM

The LDS ignores what the Bible so clearly teaches, and insists that Christ’s atonement only covers the penalty for Adam’s sin and guarantees universal resurrection, thereby opening the way for us to earn the right to forgiveness of our own personal sins. Here are some scriptures that prove without a shadow of a doubt that Christ was crucified to pay the full price of all the sins of those who trust in Him for salvation:

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou salt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21, KJV)

For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. (Matthew. 26:28, KJV)

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3, KJV)

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10, KJV)

… Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood (Revelation 1:5, KJV)

We see from the above that Christ’s death on the cross was vicarious, in that He died in our place, to pay the price of our sins. And that’s why the cross was always central to the gospel message preached by the primitive church:

But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. (1 Corinthians 1:23-24, KJV)

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. (1 Corinthians 1:18, KJV)

Christians wear a cross as a testimony to their allegiance to Christ and as a symbol of their faith in His atonement for their sin through His sacrificial, substitutionary sacrifice on their behalf on the cross. And churches that follow the teachings of the Bible always prominently display a large cross at their place of worship, as a constant reminder to the congregation of who they once were (condemned sinners) and of what Christ has done for them (set them free from the guilt and the penalty of their sins). It also effectively reminds us of the terrible price He paid for our forgiveness.

 
THE LDS GOSPEL IS NOT
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
THE GOSPEL THAT CHRIST PROCLAIMED

Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. (Galations 3:21-25, KJV)

THE NEW COVENANT GOSPEL
In His wisdom and mercy God provided a way of salvation under a New Covenant of grace, that allowed for the fallenness of man. In, by and through Christ’s substitutionary atonement on the cross, He dealt with fallen man’s sin problem, and reconciled us to Himself.

 

God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5:19, KJV)

Although He had no sin, Christ paid the consequences for our sins, in our place, on the cross at Calvary. However, just as the Old Covenant sinner had to identify himself with the substitutionary sacrifice that was to die in his place to cover his sin, so we too need to identify ourselves with Christ by putting our faith in Him. And the moment we do that He becomes our our substitute sin bearer/saviour, and we are counted as being “in Him.”

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16, KJV)
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, (Ephesians 1:7-8, NASB)

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross (Colossians 2:13-14, KJV). (Italics inserted by writer.)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9, KJV)

The gospel (good news) of the primitive Church of Jesus Christ was that Christ had ratified a New Covenant of grace for the forgiveness of sins by His shed blood on the cross at Calvary, where He had defeated sin, Satan, death and hell on our behalf.
This was the most amazing, liberating news. All the Old Covenant had ever done was to prove that fallen man could not live up to God’s standards of righteousness. But now the promised Jewish Messiah had come down to earth and had vicariously died to save us both from the consequences of our sins and from the power that sin has over us. The burden of guilt and the resulting fear of death and judgment was to be no more!

After His resurrection Christ appeared to His disciples, instructing them to be witnesses of His death on the cross, and of His resurrection three days later. He also commanded them to proclaim in His name, repentance and the forgiveness of sins:

Then He opened their understanding that they might understand the Scriptures, and said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day. And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. (Luke 24:45-48, KJV). (Italics inserted by writer.)

And then just before His ascension, He confirmed this instruction:

“Ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8, KJV)

Notice that the gospel was to be all about Him and how He had earned the forgiveness of our sins. They were to be witnesses as to who Christ was and what He had done for and on behalf of fallen mankind through his death and resurrection. This is why the gospel of Christ’s church was, and still is, always centred on Christ and the cross. As Paul said:

We preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. (1 Corinthians 1:23-24, KJV)

However, Satan doesn’t give up that easily. Although he knew that he had been defeated and was destined for judgment and hell, he wants to thwart God’s plan to redeem fallen man, and thereby take as many of us with him as he possibly can. With this aim in mind he sends out his messengers to proclaim counterfeit gospels with counterfeit saviours and a counterfeit salvation. Paul warned the church at Galatia concerning this danger:

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. (Galations 1:8-9, KJV)

THE MORMON GOSPEL
As mentioned, the gospel preached by the apostles in the primitive church was centred on Christ, the New Covenant of grace that He had ratified, and the forgiveness of sins that He had earned on our behalf on the cross. In contrast to this, the LDS has banned the symbol of the cross on their premises and their gospel is centred on Joseph Smith, their church and their supposed authority. But this was precisely the sort of thing that Paul was warning us about. The Mormon gospel bears no resemblance to the gospel that Christ instructed the apostles to preach. It is “another gospel.”

Although the LDS calls their gospel, “the gospel of Jesus Christ,” it is in reality the gospel of Joseph Smith. The “good news” that their missionaries proclaim from door to door is that God allowed the church that Christ had died for, to go into total apostasy, and that He also permitted the Bible, the standard of truth that He’d given us for our spiritual guidance and protection, to become corrupted and unreliable. They then go on to claim that their prophet, Joseph Smith, has restored the “true” church in these latter days, and that salvation can now be attained only through themselves.

Christ is sidelined, his atonement is deprecated and Joseph Smith and his LDS church are given all the glory.

One of the things Mormons are taught is that Christ’s atonement only covers universal resurrection. So the sad fact is that although the Bible clearly tells us that Christ died for the sins of those who identify themselves with Him by faith, Mormons don’t go that route. Instead they have opted to follow the way of salvation proclaimed by Joseph Smith, i.e. that they have to earn the right to forgiveness of their sins through obedience to the laws and ordinances of the LDS organization, plus virtuous living. (See the articles on this site entitled “Mormon Salvation and its Deceptiveness.” and “Mormon Salvation Exposed to the Light of the Bible.”)

Considering that under the Old Covenant nobody was ever able to satisfy God’s demands for righteousness in this way, the Mormon gospel places its followers in a precarious position. Not only that, they have trampled underfoot the precious blood of Christ that He so selflessly shed to earn, once and for all, the forgiveness of all our sins:

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. (Ephesians 1:7, KJV)

 

 
If you wish to gain a deeper understanding of this subject, click on the following links:

Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. (Romans 5:9, KJV)

Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, (Revelation 1:5, KJV)

Heralding the Messiah’s imminent coming, John the Baptist exhorted the people, ” Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 3:2, KJV).

During His lifetime Christ also proclaimed the gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven, which He sometimes referred to as the Kingdom of God. We know that these two expressions mean the same thing because sometimes they are used interchangeably, such as in Matthew 19:23-24.

Christ’s gospel (good news) was that Satan’s reign on earth was all but over because He had come down from heaven not only to atone for our sins but also to defeat Satan, God’s enemy and ours too; thereby breaking his hold on mankind and restoring the rule of God, or the Kingdom of God, on earth.

When we read the book of Acts, we notice that the disciples explained the gospel of Christ to the Jews by showing them via the scriptures, how the Old Covenant had been fulfilled in Christ. And so in order to understand the gospel properly, we will need to take a very quick look at both the Old and the New Covenants.

THE OLD COVENANT

Under the Old Covenant, when the Israelites had sinned, God didn’t tell them that they would have to earn the right to forgiveness (as does the LDS church). He knew fallen man was incapable of ever doing such a thing. So instead, He instituted the substitutionary sacrifice. The sinner had to take an unblemished animal to the altar and place his hand upon its head to indicate that it would represent him, and would die in his place, to cover his sin (Leviticus 1:4, 4:29,33). This was a picture of the coming, promised Jewish Messiah who would sacrifice His life to pay the full penalty for the sins of those who had indicated by faith, that He was their substitute sin bearer.

In his epistle to the church at Galatia, Paul explains that the Old Covenant was used by God to convince fallen man that he is, of himself, incapable of living according to God’s standards of righteousness. The constant plume of smoke arising from the sacrificial altar bore witness of this fact. Although they were God’s chosen people, who had enjoyed His protection and were in possession of His Law, and had every intention of fulfilling it; they nevertheless found themselves continuously slipping up in word, thought and deed. God’s Laws and Ordinances didn’t have the power to save anyone. All they did was reveal the holiness of God on the one hand, and the innate sinfulness of fallen man on the other.

The LDS Gospel is Not the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Obesity blamed for doubling rate of diabetes cases The Associated Press – ATLANTA (AP) – The nation’s obesity epidemic is exacting a heavy toll: The rate of new diabetes cases nearly doubled in the United States in the past 10 years, the government said Thursday.

 If you read  all of the news at straight value, as the truth  as all being true, you really would be a fool.  I also do know that many people have diabetes.. but has this above rate of diabetes now even factored the war babies effect, those kids born after world war 2 and now there were  plenty of them and they are now becoming seniors with cancer, heart atacks,  diabetes. This increase of diabetes may be rather associated with more people now become seniors too?

 Judge this as true

(1 Cor 6:9 KJV)  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
  
(Mat 7:3 KJV)  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
 
 
Judge this now also
 
…Example of a really stupid Obama support Poll, you  include the alcoholics, drug addicts, smokers, adulterers,  as born again Christians . Never!
 
 
or Judge this
    
You cannot believe now many of  the clear false spins by the liberal news media who wrongfully dislike all professing Christians.
  
Now about some of the bad judges

Judge Not! I really Like those hypocrite who never read the Bible and quote falsely a verse out of the Bible like do not judge others, but they still do now hypocritcally judge  me when they quoted the verse too,  and  they also had said I should also talk about the sin of gluttony, obesity, but  I already have fully covered Gluttony elsewhere, and not all fat people are gluttons for a start too

Note -Sodom & Gomorrah (Jude 6-7, Gen 18:16-33; 19:1-29, Ezek 16:48-50)

Sexual immorality with “strange flesh”
Homosexuality
Pride
Gluttony
Idleness
Neglect of poor & needy
Both cities and the surrounding territory were destroyed by God
 
I have really also learned  form observing many persons the last 30 years that there tends to be no such thing as a little bit pregnant,  that to open the barn door a little bit,  left unrestrained, undisciplined, unsupervised, means  the barn door next it will eventually swing wide open.. and when any person tends to personally allow, start a little acceptable vice, eventually the other even bigger vices do now also tend to grow, develop there as well..  and they too all thus next can be easily discovered, even though the guilty persons will deny this.. even now next the vices of pre-marital sex, sodomy, polygamy, alcoholism, gambling, adultery,  drunkenness, bingeing, gluttony, gouging, Self-destructive behaviors, selfishness, indifference, apathy, jealousy, anger, hate,   envy,   rudeness, irritability or grudges , lust, cussing, cheating , addiction, shoplifting, stealing, tax evasions and even abusive behaviors, pride, lying.  
 
To some ostrich minded persons these same bad vices that are now so supposedly common and so pervasive in our society that they supposedly  have become overlooked,  and taken as acceptable but now really have they now too? Even lying these days is supposedly not that much of a big deal when they are considered ‘white lies.’? These same concept of vice that is present in every society, but how it is judged culturally differ now based on one’s own personal  religious belief systems that  supposedly vary widely as well but is this really true now as well.  
 
Personal Vices unrestrained are not only self-destructive but next also harmful to many others. They are not only limited solely as a result to one’s actions, but rather tend comprises of what is initially inside a person’s heart.
 
Over the last 30 years I have seen, learned firsthand that many, almost most  persons are dual standardized, two faced, even the completely very secular, non religious persons.. while they may even openly advocate personal freedom from the observations of all moral, legal laws, and now openly, publicly promote pornography, adultery, drunkenness, vice, but note this many of them do still personally hold inwardly and clearly believe that  the traditional moral values and moral standards are of a high personal value, and still required even in others, and they do judge others by these moral  values.
 
The unrepentant sins of any person, nation  still even today has next God’s negative corrections.. including not just the supposedly seven deadly sins.. Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for  whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.  God is not to be scoffed at.  And when there is supposedly no specific Scriptural reference to a specific proposed act , it is still good to ask oneself, not whether a certain thing is wrong, but rather if it is definitely good. (1 Cor 10:23 KJV)  All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
 
 
 
(Mark 7:18 KJV)  And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
 
(1 Cor 5:12 KJV)  For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
 
(1 Cor 6:2 KJV)  Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
 
(1 Cor 6:3 KJV)  Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
 
(1 Cor 6:4 KJV)  If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
 
(1 Cor 6:5 KJV)  I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
 
(1 Cor 10:15 KJV)  I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.
 
(1 Cor 11:31 KJV)  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
 
(1 Cor 14:29 KJV)  Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
 
(Col 2:16 KJV)  Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
 
(Rom 14:3 KJV)  Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
 
(Heb 10:30 KJV)  For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
 
(Heb 13:4 KJV)  Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
 
(James 4:11 KJV)  Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
 
(James 5:9 KJV)  Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
 
(1 Pet 4:5 KJV)  Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
 
(Rev 6:10 KJV)  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
 
(Rev 19:11 KJV)  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.   
    
    
(Rev 6:10 KJV)  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? (1 Cor 10:33 KJV)  Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved. 

(1 Cor 14:40 KJV)  Let all things be done decently and in order. and “Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus” (Colossians 3:17).

Proverbs 6:16-19 clearly also declares: “There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: (1) haughty eyes, (2) a lying tongue, (3) hands that shed innocent blood, (4) a heart that devises wicked schemes, (5) feet that are quick to rush into evil, (6) a false witness who pours out lies, and (7) a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.”

(1 Cor 6:9 KJV)  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,10   Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

(Gal 5:19 KJV)  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

However, these lists are not a complete list of unacceptable personal sins nor is it  fully as to  what many  people still do hold are the  the “seven deadly sins.”

Most people can understand that the common list of the “seven deadly sins” are also rather: pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed, and sloth. Although each of these personal acts are undeniably still also sins,  but  they are never given the description of “the seven deadly sins” in the Bible. The common traditional list of the “seven deadly sins”  are no more “deadly” than any other unrepentant  sin. All unrepentant sin results in death, note importantly not just physical death, but spiritual death, for all unrepentant sins can have negative personal consequence, even on one’s spiritual growth, it prevents them from going on with the lord in a deeper manner in fact,    Praise be to God, that through Jesus Christ, all of our sins, including also bullying, abuse, slander, gossip, and the “seven deadly sins,” can all now be forgiven. 

(1 John 1:9 KJV)  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10  If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

(1 John 2:1 KJV)  My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2  And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3  And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5  But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6   He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.7 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. 8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.9  He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.10  He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.11  But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

(Eccl 7:20 KJV)  For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

(1 John 3:6 KJV)  Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

(1 John 5:18 KJV)  We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

The Grace of God is still  not a license to sin.

Galatians 6:7-10: Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh shall from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit shall from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary. So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.
I passed by the field of the sluggard, And by the vineyard of the man lacking in sense; And behold, it was completely overgrown with thistles, Its surface was covered with nettles, And its stone wail was broken down. (Prov. 24:30-31)

The unrepentant sins of any person, nation  has next still God’s negative corrections.. or punishments. The true  believer who sins in his walk with the Lord quickly regrets it, confesses it early, sincerely wishes to never do it again and does seek  to appropriate God’s power and grace to avoid it again. The false believer does not renounce his or her sin. The “sin unto death” is deliberate, willful, continuous, unrepentant sin. While God, in His grace, can allow  His children to sin without immediately fully punishing them. Next  there does comes a point when God will no longer allow any believer to continue in unrepentant sin. When this point is reached, God can sometimes decides to punish a Christian  even to the point of taking his or her life. Sins of grieving the holy spirit, human rights abuses can fall into this category.

Galatians 6 1 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. 2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.  3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.  4 But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.  5 For each one shall bear his own load. Be Generous and Do Good

(Eccl 7:16 KJV)  Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
 
(Eccl 7:17 KJV)  Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?
 
(Luke 12:3 KJV)  Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
 
(Mat 10:27 KJV)  What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. 28  And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
 
(Mat 18:1 KJV)  At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2  And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3  And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7  Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 8  Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9  And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10  Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. 11  For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. 
 
(Mat 23:11 KJV)  But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. (Mat 23:12 KJV)  And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
 
(Luke 11:49 KJV)  Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
 
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you. (Phil. 4:8-9) 
 
The Non Christians rather too often deliberately do like to believe in the lie that God does not exists, or that God is dead, for  that way hopefully they will  not give a personal accountability next for all their sins, wrong doings to God. They are dreaming only. They will give a full account, so will we all.  Many a Christian even  have also a similar false doctrine towards their  sins, false reasons not to not to repent, they call it falsely the dispensation of, the age of grace, and they still lie when they say God will merely next forgive all of their  unrepentant sins or deliberate ones. God is not mocked for what one sows will they  reap..

* It is estimated that nearly one in three  adults have high blood pressure. People from lower socioeconomic backgrounds who suffer a heart attack come to the emergency department more often, are less likely to be treated aggressively and have higher mortality rates a year after heart attack, says new University of Alberta research that has important implications for access to cardiac care. If blood pressure is not brought back to the normal range it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure. Magnesium, Cayenne Pepper, Onions, Garlic, Bananas   have also been demonstrated to be effective in bringing down high blood pressure. Eat also a food diet high in fiber, fresh fruit, more vegeatables  and food always low in sugar, and low in salt.  Avoid the negative side effects of today’s medicines such as Diuretics, Beta Blockers, Alpha Blockers and the related abusive, extortionate, crushing financial costs.
