My House Fellowship CHURCH
False Unity In The Body Of Christ
The United Religions gets a Charter
In 1996, Bishop Swing called for the forming United Religions “The United Religions Initiative 2000”. one would not consider this a bad thing, we know that God wants his church to become one body in Christ Jesus. ("Eph 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of
Christ:") (Pope Francis, elected a week ago as the first non- European pope in 1,300 years, met leaders of non- Catholic Christian religions such as Orthodox, Anglicans, Lutherans and Methodists, and others including Jews, Muslims, Buddhists and Hindus.) So what would be so bad uniting all faiths? ("There is only one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and
Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all." His name is not, Buddha, Allah, Mary, Pope, Lakshmi, Satan, his name is the grate "I am" Elohim, El- Shaddai, Yahweh, Jehovah, Father/Abba and he is a "Jealous God, " Exo 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Exo 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Exo 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and
fourth generation of them that hate me; Exo 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. ) Other reason's we true believers cannot
participate in this endeavor. ("Amo 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed? ") - ("2Co 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for
what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 2Co 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 2Co 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2Co 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 2Co 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.") Know for fact, this is the reason persecution is coming to America, it won't be the persecution we go through now, "made fun of, mocked, ridiculed, shunned, passed over for promotions or joked about" no brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, you will be hated, churches will lose their tax exempted statues, pastors
and church members put into prison for preaching against any sin they call hate crimes. If you don't become part of this "One World Religion," you will become part of end time prophecy. ("2Ti 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. ") - ("Mat 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the
kingdom of heaven. Mat 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. they the prophets which were before you.")
All this lead me up to this, I can only obey what God lays on my heart, I know I am of no significance and why God would lay this on my heart I don't understand, yet I never understood why he saved me, one of the world's worse sinners, , so as humbly as I accepted his grace to me, I accept his task he has laid on my heart no matter how silly I might seem to you. Thank God for the repentance movement going on in America, of which I am thankful to have been a part of and still am. I have not felt led of God to move in any direction after March 30th 2016, a national call to the body of Christ to repentance except for seeing in the Spirit 2016 will conclude the grace period God has given this nation's church to repent. Thank God for Franklin Graham and
others who continue to work for this goal, sadly we need more, pastor, preachers, teachers, evangelist in this nation to stand and do their jobs ("2Ti 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2Ti 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 2Ti 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.2Ti 4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full
proof of thy ministry.")
Many I know are counting on this election to turn this nation around, body of Christ, this election will have no bearing on the judgment coming, unless we the true church, repent come together in the true unity of faith, calling on the one true God in the name of our Lord. A house, divided will fall, united we stand. Denominations have split the body of Christ, it started
long ago, ("1Co 1:11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
1Co 1:12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. 1Co 1:13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? ") No, all were saved by one man, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Each one of you know or should know your denominations "tenets of faith," you know why you and your denomination are the only ones going to be saved. I see it just like the chosen twelve disciples Jesus sent out to minister in his name, ("Mar 9:38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him,
because he followeth not us. Mar 9:39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. Mar 9:40 For he that is
not against us is on our part.") just like the majority of denominations and churches in the world today, "if they are not part of us, they must be of the devil. They don't sing like us, they don't pray like us, they don't dress like us, they don't worship on Sunday like us, I grant you if Jesus was here he would tell us forbid them not.
Your denomination might not have sent them, but God did. Can we not unite under the things that we do agree on, things that pertain to our salvation, denominations might not agree, but if you are a child of God and know what I say is true, then we can unite as one. I am not asking you to change your denomination, I am not asking you to change your church membership, all
God is asking for is unity in his body. I don't know about you, I want no part of a "One World Religion, or a One World Government, until Jesus comes.
Persecution will unite the true body of Christ, just be prepared when you find out you and your denomination or church are not the only ones chosen by God. Pray for each other, lean on each other, love each other, ("Col 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.") Yet we don't have to wait for persecution to force us to become one in the body of Christ, in my feeble attempted to unite the body of Christ I offer this solution, "let's start our own "United Body Of Christ" read on, see if you agree. We can make a America great again, without the United Nations. (Act 5:38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: Act 5:39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.)
True Unity Of The Body Of Christ
Eph 4:1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, Eph 4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Eph 4:3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Eph 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; Eph 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, Eph 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
1. We believe there is no other God but one. He is the Father of Jesus Christ our Lord, the God of Israel. Exo 3:6 Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. Luk 3:22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him,
and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. 1Co 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in
him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
2. We believe there is only one Lord and saviour "Jesus Christ." Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 1Co 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1Ti 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 1Ti 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
3. We believe repentance is required by God through our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, to all who believe. Mat 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Mar 6:12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent. Luk 13:2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? Luk 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Luk 13:4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? Luk 13:5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
4. We believe in water baptism, when possible (Remember the thief hanging on the cross.) "not for sanctification, but the answer of a good conscience toward God. 1Pe 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
5. We believe in the resurrection of all born again believers unto eternal life, with Jesus Christ our Lord. Joh 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: Joh 11:26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
Act 24:15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust. 1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1Th 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
6. We believe in eternal damnation. Mar 3:29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
Mat 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.2Th 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the
gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 2Th 1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
7. We believe there is only one path to God and eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. We believe in the true unity of the body of Christ, and we
are commanded by God to do so. Eph 4:1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, Eph 4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Eph 4:3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Eph 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; Eph 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, Eph 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. To God be the glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord. if you want to be a part of this call for a united body of Christ please go to myhousefellowship.org and sign up.
The goal is to unite true believers of the one true faith not faiths. God bless
If you cannot see what is happening to our nation, I can only pray you not only continue reading but follow through with good advice, not from me but from the one true God. (Mat 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.) What was true for Israel is true for America today. Be healed America, (Rev 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: Rev 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.)
Yes I Am, A Hater
In the day and age we live in, the more I stand up against sin, the bigger the hater I become. Why am I a hater? God commands us to hate. Hate what? Hate evil. "Pro 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate." The trouble in America and the world today is, the church has stop obeying the
word of God. We are to be doers and not just hears of God's word. " Jas 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves."
If I stand up for the life of the unborn, over the convenience of women to relieve themselves of an unwanted child, I become a women hater, But not in the way they think. I must correct you, I do not hate the women, I hate the murder they are committing, it will take them to hell, if not repented of. I don't want them, to go to hell. If I stand up for the life of cops being murdered by "Black lives matter followers," I become a race hater, but not in the way they think. I must correct them, I don't hate black's, I hate the murder they are committing, it will take them to hell, if not repented of, I don't want them to go to hell.
If I stand up against gay marriage, I become a gay hater, but not in the way they think. I must correct them, It is not gay people I hate, it is the sin of homosexuality and the destruction of the godly union between a man and women, it will take them to hell, if not repented of, I don't want them to go to hell.
If I stand up against drinking & drugs, I become a drunk hater, I become a druggie hater. But not in the way they think. I must correct them, it is not the drunk I hate, nor the druggie I hate, it is the sin of drugs and alcohol I hate, it will take them to hell, if not repented of, I don't want to see them go to hell.
If I stand up against adultery and fornication, I become a hater of men and women who commit adultery and fornication, but not in the way they think. I must correct them, it is not the men and women who commit adultery and fornication I hate, it is the sin of adultery and fornication I hate, it will take them to hell, if not repented of, I don't want to see them go to hell.
Yes I am a hater of many sins in this world, God commands me to be so, I hate what it does to the lives of us who are in bondage to them, in this world and the life to come. What the church has lost sight of, grace not only forgives us of our sins, undeserving as we all are, " 1Ti 1:15 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. " but we it also frees us from the bondage of sin," Gal 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. "Joh 8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. Joh 8:35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. Joh 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." A born again child of God does not practice sin, "1Jn 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God."
A liar must stop lying, a drunkard must stop drinking, a fornicator must stop their fornication, an adultery must stop adultery, a homosexual must stop their homosexuality, a lesbian must stop their lesbian practice, a thief must stop stealing, a murder must stop murdering, and on and on, as Christians, we are to stop practicing sin in our lives, that means we do not
willfully continue in the life of sin, God sets us free from.
Does that mean we are totally free from sin? certainly not, "1Jn 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1Jn 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1Jn 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." But know this, "Gal 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."
If the church does not stand up against sin, they are true haters of sinners and not the sin, why? A church that does not preach against all manner of sin, could care less about the souls that are
living in pain and suffering because of their sin's and will die and go to hell for eternity. I ask you, can we continue to commit/practice any kind of sin and grace abound/thrive? "Rom 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? Rom 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Rom 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life." Not according to our faith, which should be the word of God.
Yes I'm a hater, but not in the way you think, I hate sin in your life, my life, in the life of the whole world, sin kills, stills and destroys, in this life and the life to come. You think being silent, as you watch friends and love ones fall into various sins, is a Godly thing for you to do? You are a hater of them and to the rest of your family who will think it is alright to commit such sins, "Eze 3:18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand."
Yes I'm a hater, but not in the way you think, I hate it when people want to destroy my faith, my God, my way of life, simply to in-force their sinful ways, no it is not them I hate, I hate their sinful destructive ways, driven by the passion of their sins. Where will you draw the line? How will you justify the line you draw? Will it be when pederasty or NAMBLA-(North American Man-Boy Love Association/lover of boys,)demand their right to marry? are you not a respecter of persons. (Jas 2:9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.) are you a sinner?
If homosexuality is not to be looked at as sin, and we as the body of Christ must toss our faith out the door to accept it, should we not accept NAMBLA as well? Aren't you a hater of men wanting
to marry or have sex with young boys, what would be the difference? (Jas 2:9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.) will you be in sin?
Where will you draw the line? How will you justify the line you draw? Will it be when the bestiality/ "when a human engages in an act of sex with an animal," people cry out for their right to
marry and have open relationships with the animals they love, will you accept it or will you become a hater of men and women who have sex with animals? (Jas 2:9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.) will you be in sin?
If you think I'm farfetched, it is just a matter of time if the church does not repent and stand for righteousness.
Church sin is sin, if we don't stand against it, we condone it, I guess the only politically correct thing that can be hated in the world today is a born again Christian willing to stand up for the
truth. Why is it ok to be a Christian hater? Why do you hate my beliefs, my faith, my life style and it is ok? You think because I hate sinners, you have the right to hate me, let me correct you
one last time, I don't hate the sinner I hate sin, in my life your life and in the lives of all to come, it not only destroys our lives on earth, but will destroy our souls in hell.
Yes I'm a hater but not in the way you think. Truth sets people free, Gal 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
That's fine, my Lord told me of you, (Joh 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. Joh 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Joh 15:20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If
they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. Joh 15:21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.)
Church can you not hear what you just read? Do you hate me as well, because I tell you the truth? that spirit is not of God but of the world. Repent church, repent.
Unless you have been someone who has buried their head in the sand for the last fifteen years, you would know that George H.W. Bush was one of our presidents who openly spoke about the "New World Order", or "The One World Government." So we know it involves the republican party as well. It does not take a prophet to know where Obama has taken us, and how Hillary will fulfill his dream. Our only hope to delay or even deliver America from the grips of this demonic spirit is in Donald John Trump. Sr. My only hope is from what he says, that he will fight for America, not a "New World Order". I sure don't hear that from Hillary. Wake up church and vote for God and country, if Trump does not accomplish what he says he will do, we can rest assured, that we did all we could before God and man to fight for them both, even at that as a nation we might buy more time, to get right
with God. God bless Pastor Gary.
Jud 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
The condition of the body of Christ or church today. "No oil in their lamps." We are to be the light of the world through Jesus Christ our Lord: (Mat 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Mat 5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.)
As we repented of our sins and confessed Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, we became part of the light, so we therefore become lights of the world, we receive our candle: (Joh 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; Joh 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. Joh 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Joh 14:19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. Joh 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.)
The concept of Jesus being the Light of the world is not new, we know everything in the old priest hood, was a shadow of Christ, who was to come: in (Zec 4:1 And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep, Zec 4:2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: What did he see? a candle stick, Jesus is the candlestick:
(We see One Candlestick of gold: Symbolic of Jesus being the light of the world. (Joh 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.) - (Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God. Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.) The candlestick "Jesus," lit the way to the holiest of holies, "God" through the darkness, as the light of Jesus does the same for us:( In Exodus they were placed in the temple to give light to the Holiest of holies, to the mercy seat of God. (Exo 27:20 And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamp to burn always. Exo 27:21 In the tabernacle of the congregation without the vail, which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening to morning before the LORD: it shall be a statute for ever unto their generations on the behalf of the children of Israel.) - (1Jn 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.) - (Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. Joh 1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. Joh 1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.)
The lamps, are connected to the candlestick by seven golden pipes allowing the oil to flow to the lamps: what is being represented by these seven lamps? These lamps are the seven spirits of God, or the Holy Spirit:( Zec 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.) - (Rev 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. (The seven lamps are the Seven Spirits of God, "the Holy Ghost," the all seeing, all wise, all understanding, all council, all mighty, all knowledgeable, Spirit of the fear of God.)
God the Father, God the son, God the Holy Ghost are all three are represented in these scriptures: God in the holiest of holies, sitting on the mercy seat waiting to forgive, the Holy Spirit and Jesus to light the way and help us make it to him.
A. Joh 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
B. Joh 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
C. Joh 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
Joh 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
Joh 16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
Joh 16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
Joh 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
Even though all three are represented in different aspects , they are all one: (1Jn 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.)
Now every lamp need's oil, where did the oil come from? Zec 4:3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
Zec 4:4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord? Zec 4:5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
Zec 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.)
They are two anointed ones: (Zec 4:14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.) "Sons of oil" Who stood by God as he created the heavens and the earth? (Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.) - (Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.) (Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.) - (Her we have God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, you say I see God, I see the Spirit, but I don't see Jesus, is he not "God said?" - Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.
Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Joh 1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
Joh 1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.)
God the Holy Spirit and God the Son are the two anointed ones, the two olive trees. The oil for the candle comes from the two olive trees, no other oil can take their place. The only way to God is through Jesus, the only way to Jesus is through the Holy Spirit, the only thing that will keep us there is Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus is the candlestick, Jesus is the pipes the oil flows through, the Holy Spirit is the Lamps and the oil that is lit to send forth light to the Father, the oil that flows throughout the candlestick comes from both the Son, and the Spirit.
So what's my point? (Jud 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.) It was Aaron and his sons, the priest hood, job to keep
the lamps burning. (Exo 27:20 And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamp to burn always. Exo 27:21 In the tabernacle of the congregation without the vail, which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening to morning before the LORD: it shall be a statute
for ever unto their generations on the behalf of the children of Israel.)
Who's job is it to keep your light burning? You are the candlestick, remember? (Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.) so who's job is it to keep it burning? - (Jud 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.)
Remember these girls? -
Mat 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
Mat 25:2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
Mat 25:3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
Mat 25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
Mat 25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
Mat 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Mat 25:7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
Mat 25:8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
Mat 25:9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
Mat 25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
Mat 25:11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
Mat 25:12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
Mat 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
The majority of the church is in darkness, yes they have lamps but many have run out of oil: (Rev 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.)
We can't keep our lamps burning without oil, not just any oil, spiritual oil, the anointing oil the Holy Ghost oil: (Pure Olive Oil: symbolic of the Holy Ghost, poured out like oil as in ((Psa 23:5
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.)
Five foolish, five wise.
Mat 25:3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: (took no extra oil with them.)
Mat 25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. (Took extra oil.) What are you running on in your lamp? the oil you received when you were first saved? Is it not time to trim
your wicks and refresh your oil? There are times of refreshing that comes from God if we seek it. (Act 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; )
How do I keep myself filled with fresh oil?
Joh 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
Joh 15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
Joh 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
Act 11:23 "Barnabas" - Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.
1Jn 4:16 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. Joh 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
Joh 15:5 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.
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Gal 5:24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. Gal 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. All this comes from the anointing of Jesus Christ our Lord and
Saviour at salvation, it is oil from the Spirit of the most High God.
2Pe 1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:
2Pe 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
2Pe 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world
2Pe 1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
2Pe 1:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
2Pe 1:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
2Pe 1:8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2Pe 1:9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
2Pe 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
2Pe 1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
2Pe 1:12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. If Jesus is not the love of our lives, if we refuse to be obedient to the word of God, if we constantly quench the Spirit of God from rebuking, reproving and exhorting us in our lives, you might want to repent and seek a refreshing of the anointing oil of our salvation, that flow's from the love of Christ, through his Holy Spirit, to the throne room of God.
1Th 5:19 Quench not the Spirit. - " to suppress a feeling completely, especially enthusiasm or desire."
Eph 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. "cause great sadness to somebody"
How can we do these two things?
Rom 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
Rom 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
Sin dries up the oil that flows from God's anointed ones.
2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive
their sin, and will heal their land. Repent Church repent.
Just my opinion: What does it mean to me to be American to me it means freedom of religion, or the freedom of not having religion. To be American is, we the people rule our nation, not we the government rule's our nation and especially not, we the united nations rule's America. To be American is freedom to speak our minds, without fear of retribution from our government. To be American is freedom to live where we choose, work how we choose. To be American is to have an opportunity to better ones self without fear of having it taken from us. Being American is the right to have life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, given to us by our God. Being American is having health care or not having health care. Being American is having an opinion on any subject or not having an opinion at all. Being American is believing an speaking our mind about anything we choose, good or bad. Being American is not forcing my views on anyone or not having anyone force their views on us, especially our government nor the supreme courts, no court at all for that matter. Please remember being American is the right to vote or not vote. I would to God we all do, but if some don't, we must be America, "One Nation Under God, a forgiving God, a loving God, a God that has even given them a choice not to, as he has given many of us such a privilege to do so." Be kind and compassionate one to another, even to them that oppose themselves. Repent, pray for this nation like you have never done in your life, maybe, just maybe, God will deliver us from the hands of the devil, yet once again, God bless. Pastor Gary
