Public exposure and prosecution of all of the guilty persons

Jesus has set me free.. from even being hooked to sins, and also from the bondage, the false oppression, enslavement by others.. sadly many other people want to be still enslaved but not me, I have really experienced freedom, I know what it is like, and I want to maintain my full freedom by God’s permission, help, now too. When I think about being set free I often do think about two images, visions that God has given me typically.. an all black, dark picture that turns to a normal scenery… and a picture of a large snake coming at me the size of a train which next disappears instead..

You know that in the daily real life now there are a major amount of significant portion of people in the population that that are unacceptable major liars, OR SPIN DOCTORS, PERSONS WHO HAVE A HIDDEN AGENDA, sometimes not that well hidden. In real life yes there are much too many false prophets, self serving liars, spin doctors that we all do need to look out for, and not just the bad car salesmen or the bad car mechanics.

Now if you do not listen to the devil anymore he next will send you a supposedly respecting persons to lie to you, to mislead you.. a brother r sister claiming to be helping you, a church pastor, elder, political, a false prophet, false teacher and so on even..

(Psa 118:8 KJV) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
(Psa 118:9 KJV) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
(Prov 25:19 KJV) Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
(Micah 7:5 KJV) Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.

Most people are still selfish persons, do show a false partiality, and they tend to only love the people who give money and gifts to them and hate the poor person who does not do this. Those who do not give into their baskets they falsely declare war on them, bad pastors, church elders now included.. THEY TEND TO SEE PEOPLE AS MERELY SELF GRATIFYING OBJECTS, OR WHAT IS IN THE RELATIONSHIP FOR ME.. THEY LIVE IN A KINGDOM OF SELF.
AntiChrists are still just the lying false prophets, false teachers, false any bodies and when you instead do trust the others to do your job that is how the AntiChrists next do abuse the systems. They are the people who do also say “We’re here to help. Contact us.” and For sure They will make it worse. these people are too often following the bad example of the devil who too often claims also to want to help you… ha ha ha .. he rather still wants to rob you, to kill you, to hurt you rather too..

Keep your eyes always solely rather on Jesus, God himself..

As I also daily do read the Bible, it often surprises me how many so called Christians do even hold theological views that are in direct conflict of the Bible, that are unproved in the Bible even in regard to so many topics now too.. All cause they too occasionally even rather do prefer to listen to the too often out of context, distorted verses out of the Bible quoted by the bad preachers instead of reading the Bible themselves.

In reality even these days many Christians SADLY themselves have never studied what the Bible actually says about these God given, Holy Spirit equipped, gifted men, offices to the Christian Church Universal by God, so they too are ignorant, they do not know, they are even confused about the role that they all should play today in Christ’s Church. Because they often wrongfully leave it to others to read the Bible for them too they thus are too easily deceived by the imposters, cults, sects, wolves in sheep clothing, false teachers, false prophets, false elders too.

(John 8:44 KJV) Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it

(James 4:7 KJV) Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
(1 Pet 5:8 KJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
(1 John 3:8 KJV) He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
(Rev 2:4 KJV) Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
(Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
It is also a COMMON fact of life, particularly amongst the young, inexperienced who cannot handle serious , heavy negative realties that false denial, ostrich approach is a serious part of their make up, and their related defense protection when they now cannot discredit the facts, they tend to make a false personal attack on the writer, instead. (1 John 3:6 KJV) Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons seems to be most effective way that works for everyone’s benefit in dealing with the bad acts of others still. Most people cannot and will not next change positively on their own without God’s input, help

(Prov 3:7 KJV) Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

Why is life so hard.. sin and it’s side effects are a constant reality. Some people are realy lucky.. they experience Jesus, His love, his forgiveness as well. Sadly too many do not.

Some people are realy lucky.. they experience Jesus

there is still no pit that Jesus cannot lift you out of if you let him.. none at all..

(Mark 4:40 KJV) And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

WALK IN THE SPRIT OF GOD AND YOU WILL NOT WALK IN THE LUST OF THE FLESH.. (Gal 5:16 KJV) This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh (Prov 14:12 KJV) There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. (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.

(Mat 21:42 KJV) Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes.

(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. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our 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. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. 3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. 4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5 For every man shall bear his own burden.

(Mat 18:3 KJV) 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.

(Mark 10:15 KJV) Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. 4:12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

(Heb 3:7 KJV) Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, 8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: 9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. 10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. 11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) 12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

If there really is a God, people wonder, why..

flwrs10  (2)
 
If there really is a God, people wonder, why there is Sin now on earth and why also God he has He allowed so much suffering in the world?

Many Christians honestly struggle with that same question. Only by turning to the Bible can we begin to understand the problem of suffering in this life. There originally was no sin in this world, none at all, Man, Adam and Eve sinned and the negative consequences of sin next now became an undeniable  permanent part of this earth, world.. God now had allowed man to use his free will, for man is not a puppet or a slave of God..

(Rom 3:23 KJV)  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

(Rom 5:12 KJV)  Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

(Deu 4:39 KJV)  Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.

(1 Sam 2:2 KJV)  There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.

(Psa 14:1 KJV)   The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

(Psa 14:3 KJV)  They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

(Psa 73:25 KJV)  Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

(Psa 86:8 KJV)  Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.

(Isa 41:17 KJV)  When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.

(Isa 45:5 KJV)  I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

(Isa 45:6 KJV)  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.

(Isa 45:18 KJV)  For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.

(Isa 45:22 KJV)  Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

(Micah 7:2 KJV)  The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.

(Hag 1:6 KJV)  Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.

(Rom 3:10 KJV)  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

(Rom 3:11 KJV)  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

(Rom 3:12 KJV)  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

“Basically, there are four types of suffering.

The first type is that which comes as the result of natural disasters, such as an earthquake or a hurricane. The suffering that results from these disasters happens to both the righteous and unrighteous (Matthew 5:45).

A second type of suffering can be called man’s inhumanity to man. War would be classified under this type of suffering. Because of humanity’s greed and pride, people try to hurt other people (James 4:1-2).

A third type of suffering is best seen in the life of Job in the Old Testament; it came as a result of Satan’s attack on him. After receiving permission from God, Satan moved in and caused incredible suffering to Job and his family.

A fourth type of suffering is that which comes as a result of our own erroneous actions. For example, if I walk off the roof of my office and fall to the ground, breaking my leg, I am suffering because I broke God’s law of gravity. We also suffer when we break God’s moral laws.

Now if Adam and Even our grandparents had firstly not disobeyed God, tall this sins and suffering would not have existed in this world

Much suffering can be traced to the evil choices we make. Some, but not all, suffering is allowed by God as a punishment for sin. Often God simply forces us to live with the consequences of our actions (Galatians 6:7-8).

Whenever people break God’s laws, others are bound to suffer as well. I refer you to the story of Achan in Joshua 7. When he coveted and took some of the spoil from the battle of Jericho, Achan cost the lives of thirty-six men in battle against Ai. It is inevitable that others will suffer in the wake of an individual’s disobedience.

How we respond to suffering–whether or not we brought it on ourselves–is going to make us or break us as Christian pilgrims. Circumstances often do more to reveal our character than to shape it. But by properly responding to trials, we can develop patience and proven character (Romans 5:3-4).

Problems, stress, calamity, or the death of a loved one often cause us to search ourselves for any sin in our lives (see 1 Kings 17:18). Pain plants the flag of truth in a heavy heart. But we must be cautious not to let Satan overwhelm us with excessive and false guilt or grief (2 Corinthians 2:7). Job’s wife told him to curse God and die. He refused to give up and remained faithful to the Lord. Notice that in the end God gave him all he had before and even more (Job 42:10-17).

Instead of looking at our circumstances, we need to keep our eyes on Jesus Christ, the source of life. He will bring us through whatever situation we face, and as a result we will be stronger Christians, better able to serve Him because of our trials.

In a day of pessimism and suffering we can say with the psalmist, “The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” (Psalm 118:6). The Lord Himself, as the great Sufferer, is our comfort and hope in troubled times.

Before you so readily sin, do your thing, do think about what possible negatives consequences now it will also have on others, beside yourself.. (Gal 6:7 KJV)  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

(Gal 6:8 KJV)  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Free indeed.

It is good to take stock and reflect if you are on the right Path yourself or are you continually being led astray by the others
  
(John 8:32 KJV)  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
 
(John 8:36 KJV)  If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
 
The false subservience to false religious overlords even in Christianity  is still too common these days in many churches  in spite of the fact that Jesus Christ Himself has set his sheep free from the bondage of men, and the devil..
 
(Jer 34:8 KJV)  This is the word that came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, after that the king Zedekiah had made a covenant with all the people which were at Jerusalem, to proclaim liberty unto them; 9  That every man should let his manservant, and every man his maidservant, being an Hebrew or an Hebrewess, go free; that none should serve himself of them, to wit, of a Jew his brother. 10  Now when all the princes, and all the people, which had entered into the covenant, heard that every one should let his manservant, and every one his maidservant, go free, that none should serve themselves of them any more, then they obeyed, and let them go. 11  But afterward they turned, and caused the servants and the handmaids, whom they had let go free, to return, and brought them into subjection for servants and for handmaids. 12  Therefore the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 13  Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; I made a covenant with your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondmen, saying, 14  At the end of seven years let ye go every man his brother an Hebrew, which hath been sold unto thee; and when he hath served thee six years, thou shalt let him go free from thee: but your fathers hearkened not unto me, neither inclined their ear. 15  And ye were now turned, and had done right in my sight, in proclaiming liberty every man to his neighbour; and ye had made a covenant before me in the house which is called by my name: 16  But ye turned and polluted my name, and caused every man his servant, and every man his handmaid, whom he had set at liberty at their pleasure, to return, and brought them into subjection, to be unto you for servants and for handmaids. 17  Therefore thus saith the LORD; Ye have not hearkened unto me, in proclaiming liberty, every one to his brother, and every man to his neighbour: behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, saith the LORD, to the sword, to the pestilence, and to the famine; and I will make you to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

Because true Born from above Christians, believers are one spirit with Jesus Christ, what the bad preachers, what ANY of these Spiritual tyrants do to  any of  “Christians” they also now do to Jesus himself  and they will, will will next really suffer for it as well! 

(Mat 7:22 KJV)  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.

(Mat 25:41 KJV)  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43    I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44    Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45   Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46   And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Sadly in real life both God, Good and bad preachers coexist but presently it seems  the bad preachers seem to outnumber the good ones  2:1 

SATAN Wants You even today. The same very busy devil who haunts the Las Vegas casinos, Church Bingo Halls, Lottos,  who often even in churches  wears a nice suit and tie to look respectable enough to con you out of your money, with half truths too, and  with the false promises of earthly wealth in exchange for “your sacrificial gift.”   Wonder how  he got his suit too?  He wants also you, he wants  to  net you, to fleece you, and for you be diverted, to miss the boat, he does not want you on the straight, narrow path that next also leads to Heaven, rather he wants you on the broad path that  leads to hell.  He clearly does not want you to live by faith in God to look after you, rather he wants you to do your own thing, for you to look after yourself. Don’t trust God he says, trust in others, trust in the Apostate Church, and in the crooked preachers too, or trust yourself rather. Trust even the too often bad Preacher these days who first  Wants His Cut. He the preacher now also does wants to know  What’s in it for him? 
  
The Preachers still seem these days to be  always hollering about how everyone must submit to THEM, it is a one way enforced submission and not rather rightfully a voluntarily ,reciprocal mutual one, and pay up, pay the  tithe , or they’ll roost in Hell for all eternity.  The same too often false PREACHERS who refuse to submit to others and to the whole   Word of God especially. Telling the truth and sharing ALL the counsel of God as the  Apostle Paul did (Acts 20:27) can be very costly with the preachers losing not only control of the money but CONTROL over people’s lives,  and the false gratification it brings to their too often already swelled egos too.  Satan likes to have   the church members stranded in the Old Testament paying of the  of tithe that  next will be too often abused by the too often bad pastors now as well..  
 
God’s ideal of a real Church now would STILL be where where everybody was just one  big happy family of  brothers and sisters  behaving in love , decency, honesty too… but NOW even many homes, families do not have this and why? The devil, sin and self centeredness, false pride RATHER run the home LIVES and yes many churches, church pastors now too.

God took the initiative to have a great church by even imparting freely too  His good Holy Spirit gifts to all, all of these mostly Gentile converts now too.  But some how along the way these great gifts and the related gifted men and women they have next too often been rather neglected, abused, distorted.. and many people these days in the churches even  need to be  rescued  from these religious kidnappers, oppressors.  The Preachers themselves too often also falsely say do what I say and not what I do.. and especially not the the too often bad things.
 
Sadly ” When you’re about to be thrown out onto the street for lack of rent money, you just try to get one of those tithe-collecting tycoons to share with you the way the first century Christians did with those in need. Yeah, right, he’ll “PRAY” for you, that is, if you can get past his entourage of ushers. ” Who likely first will say your are poor cause you alone are at fault, are in sin or the lying, bad  preacher will say you did not give the money to me, you gave it to God and God alone now, next is the one who will pay you, help you.. such hypocrisy too. Tithe givers and tithe  Collectors live high on the hog while the poor “pew Christians” struggle to keep food on the table, a roof over their heads.   (I Cor.12:5) Jesus clearly FORBADE the hierarchy (bottom-to-top pecking order) in His Body. He said in Matthew 23:8: But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and ALL YE ARE BRETHREN.  Early Christians gained a reputation among non-believers for loving one another and being charitable toward the poor in their midst.  But that is clearly now how it is these days, these days the privileged few “in ministry” fatten themselves at the expense of the struggling wage slaves out in the pews. Instead of being tenderly cared for by so-called shepherds, poor “pew Christians” get threatened that God’s gonna sick satan on them for failure to pay the preacher his cut before buying groceries and paying the rent.  Satan now loves to see their kids go hungry while poor Christian parents pay tithes “by faith”, sacrificing  the thin sliver of income left after rent, transportation and utilities are taken care of. God is NOT not at all pleased with any of such religious persons.  
 
 Go to any of the preacher for serious help and do you think you really are going to get it next? Often not now too unless you FIRST give more money, even your full “tithe” to Him?   the preacher’s palm firstly seems still  does even needs to be  greased with a lot of  money?  What happened to the kind, loving , caring preachers? Died with the dinosaurs? But don’t even expect now even the help to be real, valid next too.  I myself rightfully always prefer to go to God alone   still and not to any preacher. In reality now as well if your are laid off, sick, unemployed, poor and there just ain’t much money to be gained from you don’t expect to be welcome back to most churches these days, I mean the religious social /Cultural/pride clubs, not really Christian Churches.
 
In some churches all they seem to still talk about all the time is giving more of your donations and tithing, 10 percent generally of your wages, and why?  And now also why all the fuss over only one or two isolated and misapplied verses ABOUT TITHING in Malachi 3? what about all the other verses in the Bible about tithing, especially in the New Testament.. oh  they do not exists in the New Testament?  
  
I Tim.2:5 which states that there is only ONE Mediator between God and man, Christ Jesus. And not some other human being that must now accepts his direct representative, supposedly on God’s behalf.  And NOWHERE in the New Testament does God even authorize him to take up, spend  any of tithes in His Name. “Spiritual tyrants would demote us from our exalted place in Christ and relegate us to being tribute-paying peons who work and slave to build THEIR religious empires.  The false Tithing preachers do radically alters our relationship with God, from being His child receiving His favors solely through His grace in Christ, to some hard-nosed “prosperity partnership” whereby God only dispenses answers to prayer in exchange for cold, hard cash.”
 
Prideful, ambitious, control freak, pompous  Satan and his earthly followers do hate the way God now has redeemed us from the curse of the Law (Gal. 3:13; 5:18 ) and he hates  us being freed, free in Jesus Christ, by our blood-bought freedom too.
   
Satan is really delighted now to see all the enslavements, abuse,  chicanery and robbery going on in his rather den of thieves masquerading as a true church or a house of God!  The devil and the too often bad pastor claim they knows what’s best for the flock  so they’d better not take their freedom in Christ too seriously. Satan laughs at the sheep being able to hear the Voice of the Good Shepherd for themselves (John 10:27) he would rather  would rather have them listen to some amusing preacher who perversely usurps the place of God the Father in their lives. These leeches also lay heavy burdens on  God’s sheep , heavy burdens God  never authorized!  Satan and his bad preachers continues to rob God’s people of their identity, self worth,  of BEING sons of God, made free in Christ, part of  the House of God.  “Instead, that honor is  bestowed on some multi-million-dollar cathedral funded by TITHES AND OFFERINGS (freewill offerings are fine when necessary to meet REAL needs like feeding the poor and for missions, etc). Satan would far rather get Christians obsessed with remodeling the “sanctuary” (an Old Testament term) to the point where they neglect the care of poor Christians (God’s TRUE house). Admittedly, Christians must meet SOMEWHERE, and it might not be workable for the saints to assemble in private homes as they did in the First Century. But the local sheep shed must never be a white elephant on the backs of God’s people who are called to liberty. The REAL truth is the BODIES of God’s people ARE the real House of God (see I Cor.6:19).  Today’s tithing doctrine is an indigestible invention of carnal greedy religious wolves.  Tithing creates resentment and jealousy in the Body of Christ. Tithing turns smiley preachers into shiny-shoed tyrants  Don’t you think the good Lord has feelings too, and preachers oughta treat His property with respect? Through the Tithing Lie, satan has created a class system of cliques in what originally was a church knit together in the love of Christ, sharing and caring one for another AS EQUALS (Acts 4:34-37; 2 Cor.8:13-14). Those ancient Christians actually shared their possessions with one another. I can just hear some pious preacher yelling that today that means only SPIRITUAL possessions, and hands off HIS Ferrari coupe! ”  The devil just loves this division of haves and have-nots in the institutional church…and  the way I see it, life’s way too short to give credibility to the cold, dead institutional church by paying the tithe tribute to it  ”
 
There are yes there now are still too many  false sheep who worship those too many crooked evangelical pastors too dressed in nice suits. Not trying to impress anyone, or showing off I next went to a new church dressed in my clean, regular daily clothes. I next too was surprised when no  one said hello to me nor did they great me, and a few services later this continued to happen. So I prayed about it and to my surprise God said they were harlots, prostitutes. Embarrassed at this revelation I decided I would fully proof for myself this was true. So next Sunday I put on a white shirt, tie, nice black pants, and a white sports jacket and most everyone said hello  to me. Incidentally the same thing happens to me on the bus as well.. Why?  Also the very same pastor of this professing Christian church dressed there in a nice suit who also did not talk to me as well was next charged with abuse, slander, lying, misappropriation of church funds, and was eventually fired. Now these days when I see these peacock members, deacons, ushers  strutting around church in their fancy suits trying to impress the others , it causes me to be sick to my stomach still. It would be better if they used the money rather to help the poor and needy in their own church.
 
(Eccl 10:7 KJV)  I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.
 
Satan especially loves this one: Sons become servants who fearfully pay religious tribute, contrary to Gal.4:7 and Jesus’ own words in Matt.17:25-26 where He declares that the children are free (from religious taxation). Tithing severs us from the grace of God by substituting a performance-based relationship with God.  Tithing contributes to the destruction of one’s essential faith, all very much to Satan’s delight.  Tithing also clearly helps corrupt ministers to be led more astray by the lure of more earthly riches.   This tithing sheep-fleecing today firstly all amounts to spiritual fraud. lies, dissentions… for we are Christ’s Royal Priesthood (I Pet .2:5,9)  and who are ALREADY seated with Christ in heavenly places (Eph.2:6) and these too often false preachers now would demote us from being freed, slaves of no man,  and also from being Royal priests before the Lord.

Deut. 12:32: What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: THOU SHALT NOT ADD THERETO, NOR DIMINISH FROM IT. 
 
(Eccl 10:8 KJV)  He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.
 
(Eccl 10:9 KJV)  Whoso removeth stones shall be hurt therewith; and he that cleaveth wood shall be endangered thereby.
 
While God does not command, mention  mandatory tithing in the New Testament, I might expect that God will bless some of the people who voluntarily tithe, give ten percent of all their income to God, in the place God specially now tells them to give too,  for God diligently rewards those who put their trust in Him, obeys and follows his revealed will to them, but for  sure God does not bless all of the tithers, for it depends on the initial reasons as to why they do tithe, which too often they can still be wrong reasons, selfish, self centered reasons like seeking self prosperity, financial security or showing off, boasting. For a true godly Christian believer is already  promised now personal security in God, and all of their needs, not wants and desires , to be meet..
 
 Psalm 1:1  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.4  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.6  For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
 

Open rebuke is better than secret love. Those who sin rebuke before all, doing nothing by partiality, and those whom I love I chasten and rebuke before all as well. I   post  much of these facts, truths openly to all presently so they will all even repent today.  I rightfully  do not put up with any crooked cops, bad pastors, crooks and  I readily call the police, expose them , demand openly their full prosecution, dismissal too. Originally I gave many of them the doubt, but now I am convinced that most of them are deliberate, conscious crooks, specifically “hirelings” who should be fired, dismissed
 
I think we can agree that people world wide will next also read these posts,   and  that they will be upset by it and prosperity and properly respond to it too in Jesus name..
 
I also had sent my complaint to major news editors, major MPs, all the members of the legislatures in 4 major provinces now as well asking the government to deal with the false solicitation of funds, tithes under lies by any of the crooked evangelical pastors too. 
 
 Now at lest even the bad pastors also least cannot deny the fact they were given a chance to repent.. SEND THEM A COPY..  for it is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God. I have fired many pastors, seen the white terror on their wives faces when they also do see me.. they have the holy shakes, a spirit of holy fear..  the present public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves everyone’s’ best interest still.

Grace be to you and peace from God

 bvf4

http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2009/08/15/bible-versed-scenic-wallpaper/

  

 
(2 Cor 1:2 KJV)  Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
 
(2 Cor 1:3 KJV)  Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
 
(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.
 
(2 Cor 1:5 KJV)  For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
 
(2 Cor 1:6 KJV)  And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.
 
(2 Cor 1:7 KJV)  And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.
 
(2 Cor 1:9 KJV)  But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:
 
(2 Cor 1:21 KJV)  Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;
 
(2 Cor 1:22 KJV)  Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
 
(2 Cor 12:7 KJV)  And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 8  For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10  Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
 
(2 Cor 13:5 KJV)  Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
 
(2 Cor 13:11 KJV)  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. 
 
Many people are falsely led these days to believe they can have, attain anything they want, which is not so.. Jesus Christ predetermines what is good, needful, essential personally for you.
  
The same Jesus Christ who has said (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.
 
 
 

Proper values

(1 Tim 6:6 KJV)  But godliness with contentment is great gain.

(1 Tim 6:7 KJV)  For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

(1 Tim 6:8 KJV)  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

(1 Tim 6:9 KJV)  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

(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.

(1 Tim 6:11 KJV)  But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

(2 Tim 1:7 KJV)  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

(2 Tim 1:9 KJV)  Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

(1 Tim 6:12 KJV)  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.

(1 Tim 6:17 KJV)  Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

(1 Tim 6:18 KJV)  That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;

(1 Tim 6:19 KJV)  Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

Many years ago some one had said that most marriage problems, divorce are over the issue of money..  some are, but many marriages break down are due to uncontrolled lusts of the flesh, and unforgiveness as well.. 

But I would agree that many problems amongst so called Christians, including church fights are often over over money, the control over it,  and many professing Christians depart from the faith over the false lust for more money and what money can buy for them.

(James 4:1 KJV)  From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?

2  Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
3  Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
4  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.
5  Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
6  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8  Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
9  Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
10  Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

(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.

(1 Cor 16:22 KJV)  If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.

Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that people are not to be trusted, need to be supervised, and corruption still exists in construction, universities, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well.

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

(Mat 10:17 KJV)  But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

(Mat 16:6 KJV)  Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

(Mark 12:38 KJV)  And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,

(Luke 12:15 KJV)  And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

(Luke 20:46 KJV)  Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;

(Phil 3:2 KJV)  Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.

(2 Tim 3:1 KJV)  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8  Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9  But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

(2 Pet 3:3 KJV)  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

A professing Christian person I know quite well who undeniably was guilty of tax evasions, theft, lying, abuse of others, slander and much more to cover up for the reality of his own negative acts, published a Christian Devotional on the net called ” The Lord is my Shepherd” , Well Jesus Christ for certainty was not, is not his shepherd.. rather his own sinful self is dominating his own  life.

 

July 28, 2009

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..

Revenge on my abusers

 
Too many people these days seem to have a grasp of a little bit of truth, but knowing half truths can still lead you to wrong conclusions, into error.. 
 
(Mat 18:15 KJV)  Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
16  But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
17  And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as a heathen man and a publican.
18  Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19  Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
20  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
21  Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
22  Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
   
(Mat 18:23 KJV)  Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
24  And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.
25  But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
26  The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
27  Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
28  But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellow servants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
29  And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
30  And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
31  So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.
32  Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:
33  Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
34  And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
35  So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
 
Getting revenge on your enemies is a very popular topic of many an action or Kung fu movies, even now a motivation or desire of many people, and I know cause I read internet posts, even email addressed to me where someone wants Justice, revenge, satisfaction against their abusers, bullies, bad persons.
  
(2 Tim 4:14 KJV)  Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:
 
Don’t get the false impression that God overlooks the immoral acts of the abusers, or takes them very lightly.. or he never deals with them, or does not kill the abusers next too.. I have seen it myself unrepentant immoral abusers face sudden and unexpected early death next.
 
(Rom 12:19 KJV)  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
 
(2 Th 1:8 KJV)  In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
 
(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.
 
(Jude 1:7 KJV)  Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
 
But before you wish someone else dead, or want to see them punished examine yourself now firstly as well.. or it may merely be another case of the pot calling the kettle black.
 
(Luke 17:3 KJV)  Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.(Mat 6:12 KJV)  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

(Mark 11:26 KJV)  But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

(Luke 6:37 KJV)  Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

(Luke 17:4 KJV)  And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

2 Cor 2:7 KJV)  So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.

(2 Cor 2:10 KJV)  To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ;

(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.

 And do see also

(II Chronicles 19:6) “…Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment.” and do not be continually an “accuser of the brethren.” evident by ones clear absence of real love for them too.
  
Apostle Paul said he was, is the chief of sinners himself.. “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief .“—I Tim. 1:15  the same Apostle Paul who now also rebuked apostle Peter for his sin as well .The Record of the Apostle Paul Rebuking Peter Galatians 2:11-21 , Apostle Paul Rebuking Peter, Because Peter Was Wrongly Treating the Gentile Believers as Second-class Citizens (Gal 2:11 KJV)  But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.  so you also not longer respect apostle Peter as well because he continually also now sinned while following the Lord Jesus? (Mark 14:72 KJV)  And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shall deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.
  
Webster’s defines the act of judging as “to form an opinion about through careful weighing of evidence and testing of premises.” The problem arises because judging can be subjective. In other words, your judgments are based firstly on your own perceptions, motives, and understandings.  This is why two people can judge the exact same situation and come up with different determinations. Did you  with Katherine Khulman, examine her whole life, what she lived, preached, taught or just  by one bad past act of her you condemned her  falsely?  Since the judgments of man are therefore rooted in the “opinions” of man or of a women, no man’s judgments can be taken as absolute or complete truth. What did God tell you now about her himself? Jesus was able to hear God’s words  to pronounce God’s judgments.   “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” (John 7:24). We must have our will in full subjection to God’s which enables us to know God’s own words on every subject and allows us to be sent by God to others with His message. Or did you now even bother to pray to him about her before you ran away with your condemnations? The Word of God says that God enables man to judge righteously, commands man to judge righteously too, and is pleased with those who seek to judge righteously . The fact that the desire to judge righteously is highly esteemed by God.  King Solomon asks, “Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?”  We are also told not to judge according to appearances or by the flesh (John 7:24; John 8:15; James 2:1-4). This means that sound judgment cannot be based on what we see, hear, or think. Since God’s thoughts and ways are are higher than ours, He is not bound by our perceptions, opinions, or prejudices. This again is a confirmation that God alone is The Judge. Our judgments must therefore be based in His direct words to us in order for them to be true. So how is your real, direct  communication now with God, does he talk and commune with you in all things?
 
We are not to judge others in the world for God himself judges them , so we can only judge our fellow professing Christians too. To be holy spirit fruit inspectors, but we are also to judge righteously, lest we ourselves will be condemned next.. The apostle Paul also understood this relationship between judging and condemning. … reference  Jesus said, “Judge not, … (Prov 31:8 KJV)  Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. 9    Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. To be able to judge righteously, though, the Church itself must be also righteous.   For Jesus plainly rebuked  the Pharisees for their own personal hypocrisy now too, double standards.. Jesus is not forbiding Christians to judge  He is warning that we will be held accountable for how we do it, and also what we do with what we know. In other words, if we know enough about sinful behavior to tell others that it is wrong, then we have no excuse as to why that sin or others would be present in our lives.  I Corinthians 11:31-32 that we judge ourselves first so that we will not be judged. As Jesus says in verse 5, we should cast the beam out of our own eye and then we are in position to point out the fault to others. God does not forbid us to judge, but He sets up conditions wherein we must judge. According to the Bible, the act of judging righteously is a benefit to the individual Christian and to the body of believers as a whole. First “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalms 139:23-24)  Not only does judging one’s self keep you in a place of being sanctified by God, it is only then that we are made fit for the Master’s use. “If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.” (II Timothy 2:21)
 
The same Apostle Paul who had said (1 Cor 5:9 KJV)  I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: 10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. 11  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 12  For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
 
The same apostle Paul  next had said (2 Cor 2:3 KJV)  And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all. 4  For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you 5  But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all. 6  Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many. 7  So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. 8  Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him. 9  For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things.

thus so were, are  you able to forgive others now for their  sins? “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. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?” (James 4:11-12)
 
and you do remember that Moses himself disobeyed God, struck a rock twice, and was punished by not being allowed to enter the promised land.. did that fact make him a false prophet now too? and when King David committed adultery did he now also lose his salvation  too? for king Saul had lost his anointing of the holy spirit before. And what then was the difference beween David and Saul? Genuine Repentence?
  
and  when you do  judge someone else by their fruits do you look at the past or their  present fruits? Whether they had actually now repented next too? Does God remember all of your past  sins? Some or None?
 
We are to judge, but we are also to judge righteously.. when a person admits their sins,   and hopefully you do too.. (Heb 8:12 KJV)  For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. (Heb 10:17 KJV)  And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
  

 

  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 to deal with, write the simple truths, I also do readily share the good things I have learned freely

I have absolutely no doubt that many Canadian evangelical pastors included now are falsely lying, unacceptably misrepresenting the Biblical truth,  pressurizing, twisting the arms of members and adherents  to regularly tithe to their storehouse, to the Pastor’s benefit, so the pastor can live high on the hog now.
  
(1 Thess 2:2 KJV)  But even after that we had suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention. 3  For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile: 4  But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. 5  For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloak of covetousness; God is witness: 6  Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ. 7  But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:
 
Too often now the preacher still wrongfully tells the flock  he’s their sole, responsible spiritual daddy and thus he always does knows what’s best for them, so now  also they would  better not take their full freedom in Christ too seriously and next try to do anything without consulting, obeying the preacher in all things too..
 
It is still not the preacher who is the head of the Church, Jesus Christ alone is, and it is still the Holy Spirit himself  who will lead and guide you into all truth.. for the preacher job rather firstly is to lead us to God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit.
 
When expounding the truth, the Bible the bad preacher often wears colored glasses it seems that say “What’s in it for me”, says the preacher too?
 
So long as the preacher wears a nice suit, no matter how or how much he paid for his suit he is a good preacher it seems
 
Many Preachers do seem count  on your ignorance of the Word of God  as they often do also try  convince you you’re way too dumb to argue with them, for  God has spoken to them directly on the matter, and if you challenge them they tend to ignore you or kick you out..
 
(1 Cor 11:3 KJV)  But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
 
(Eph 4:15 KJV)  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
 
(Eph 5:23 KJV)  For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
 
(John 14:16 KJV)  And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
 
(John 14:26 KJV)  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
 
(John 15:26 KJV)  But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

 The ends seem to justify the means for some. In the secular world it is common to contact your employer to try to put pressure on you when you disagree with a corporation, but in the religious world it is an unacceptable  common ploy for bad undeniably pastors with no fear and accountably as well  too often to try meddle into your family affairs, to try to seduce,  counsel your own wife behind your back and knowledge, trying to divide and conquer as many persons have told  me, they had the same bad experiences too, me included. 

Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas, Pastors, Ministers, politicans, cops  too. Sadly some people they tend  present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness  for they tend to falsely  have a hidden agenda, and often they want to be falsely personally worshipped and live in sin too.
 
Is 2:22 Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?
  

Sow the wrong seed and you can also next reap a whirl wind, and  yes church pastors included now, for  there is really no such thing as a little bit allowable sins for the Church pastors included, no such thing as being a  little bit pregnant here too.. reaping for their lies, misdirection.. and it is also still clearly unacceptable for any Pastors to counsel a man’s wife behind his back, and without his knowledge, approval,  permission, but even this sadly now  is an unacceptable  common occurrence yes  in evangelical churches now too, even in the Brethren, Baptist, Alliance and Pentecostals churches now too.. and sadly this is now how the war against the perverse pastors’ of the Toronto airport church and other similar bad churches  had next escalated. When any spouse also starts to talk to any others now about their family affairs they now are next definitely  headed towards divorce wars as well.. 

 

 There are yes too many  false sheep who worship those crooked leaders, shepherds, pastors dressed in nice suits. Not trying to impress anyone, or showing off I next went to a new church dressed in my clean, regular daily clothes. I next too was surprised when now one said hello to me nor did they great me, and a few services later this continued to happen. So I prayed about it and to my surprise God said they were harlots, prostitutes. Embarrassed at this revelation I decided I would fully proof for myself this was true. So next Sunday I put on a white shirt, tie, nice black pants, and a white sports jacket and most everyone said hello  to me. Incidentally the same thing happens to me on the bus as well.. Why?  Also the very same pastor of this professing Christian church dressed there in a nice suit who also did not talk to me as well was next charged with abuse, slander, lying, misappropriation of church funds, and was eventually fired. Now these days when I see these peacock members, deacons, ushers  strutting around church in their fancy suits trying to impress the others , it causes me to be sick to my stomach still. It would be better if they used the money rather to help the poor and needy in their own church.

all alone in serving God..

 

The prophet Elijah experienced his own depression very shortly after experiencing a major victory with God. Elijah held a competition – himself against 450 prophets of Baal! – to prove the might of God. After a lot of storm and drama, God proved Himself to be the Only True God and Elijah experienced a major personal victory. The queen at the time -Jezebel – was very unhappy about this and threatened Elijah’s life. Elijah became frightened and ran for his life. After coming to the end of his (physical) rope (in the wilderness), he stopped and started to feel very badly for himself. http://christiantherapy.blogspot.com/2006/05/do-christians-get-depressed-part-1.html
 
A mighty prophet of God  Elijah next falsely was led to believe that he was all alone in serving God.. many of us are made to feel that way now too. We need to see God’s perspective…
 
I kings 19: 1-3  And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, also how he had executed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.” And when he saw that, he arose and ran for his life, and went to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there. 4  But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!”
 
(5-8)  Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an angel touched him, and said to him, “Arise and eat.” Then he looked, and there by his head was a cake baked on coals, and a jar of water. So he ate and drank, and lay down again. And the angel of the Lord came back the second time, and touched him, and said, “Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for you.” So he arose, and ate and drank; and he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights as far as Horeb, the mountain of God. (9-10) And there he went into a cave, and spent the night in that place; and behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and He said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” So he said, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life.”
 
(16-18)  “Also you shall anoint Jehu the son of Nimshi as king over Israel. And Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel Meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place. It shall be that whoever escapes the sword of Hazael, Jehu will kill; and whoever escapes the sword of Jehu, Elisha will kill. Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.”
 
The same prophet  Elijah was not alone in serving, obeying God in fact..
 
(Jer 15:15 KJV)  O LORD, thou knowest: remember me, and visit me, and revenge me of my persecutors; take me not away in thy longsuffering: know that for thy sake I have suffered rebuke. 16  Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts. 17  I sat not in the assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced; I sat alone because of thy hand: for thou hast filled me with indignation. 18  Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, which refuseth to be healed? wilt thou be altogether unto me as a liar, and as waters that fail?
 
and look at what God had said next..
  
(Jer 15:19 KJV) Therefore thus saith the LORD, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them. 20  And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brazen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the LORD. 21  And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.

(I kings 19: 19-21)   So he departed from there, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth. Then Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle on him. And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah, and said, “Please let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you.” And he said to him, “Go back again, for what have I done to you?” So Elisha turned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen and slaughtered them and boiled their flesh, using the oxen’s equipment, and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he arose and followed Elijah, and became his servant.

This demonstrated Elisha’s complete commitment to following Elijah. He destroyed the tools of his trade in a going away party for his family and friends. i. “Elisha must have had a considerable estate, when he kept twelve yoke of oxen to till the ground. If, therefore, he obeyed the prophetic call, he did it to considerable secular loss.”   ii. “Hereby he showed how willingly and joyfully he forsook all his friends, that he might serve God in that high and honourable employment.” 

others also followed God..

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..
