Canadian Supreme Court Rules Biblical Speech Opposing Homosexual Behavior is a ‘Hate Crime’

http://christiannews.net/2013/02/28/canadian-supreme-court-rules-biblical-speech-opposing-homosexual-behavior-is-a-hate-crime/

2 Corinthians 6:14 (NKJV) Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?

Revelation 18:4 (NKJV) And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.

Mark 13:9 (NKJV) (Jesus speaking) “But watch out for yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues. You will be brought before rulers and kings for My sake, for a testimony to them.

Few men and women of God are standing up on this issue. Even fewer are getting the support they need from their brothers and sisters in Christ when they do. I personally have been placed in jail in connection with my beliefs on and stand for the biblical position on this matter. Then called self-righteous by my professed brothers and sisters in Christ because I had the courage to take a stand when the cost to myself personally was so dear. I have been dragged into court, etc. All because I will not accept what God deems unacceptable. Yes, man and the world will try to destroy the reputation of those who attempt to take a stand but is a "good worldly reputation” really what a DEVOTE Christian wants?

When did Christians become such fearful people?

Jesus Empowered Flesh Controls

Truth in Love – blog entry

Monday, March 25, 2013

Jesus nowhere in the gospels took up an offering, made a condition of His disciples that they give their tithe to Him, or asked them to sign some partnership/membership agreement. Jesus was instead chasing those from the temple who were using it for their personal gain. Jesus never set up a “cooperate” church or told His disciples, ‘I want you to go to Bethlehem and build a building on the corner of Elm and Oak Streets and there start gathering the flock in one spot.

Yet, today what do we see in pastors; I used the term lightly because if anyone knows what a Pastor is they know what I am about to describe is not the individual with a true shepherds heart. Pastors who check their tithing records before they agree to meet with or minister to individuals within their congregations. Pastors who instead of empowering the people to be all they can be in Christ, to serve Him with their whole hearts are more interested in whether or not you have “officially” became a partner in their ministry or member of their church.

To call yourself a man of God, a Pastor, then stand in your pulpit and tell the people ‘We need two more people to help hand out candy at the parade, if you are a partner with this congregation then please come see me if you are interested in giving out candy.’ How horrid in the eyes of God. Because moreover what you are clearly saying without saying it is, ‘If you are not a member of this church congregation, if you have not agreed to what we view as partnership with this fellowship, then do not even bother to come see me about serving, to me you are not even worthy of giving out candy.’ How such must sound to the ears of Jesus a Man who spent His earthly life and gave His life so people might be and feel included not excluded, be given liberty and freedom not controlled.

The example I just gave was a real one. It came from the mouth of a gifted preacher who I believe loves God in many ways; but to call him a Pastor is still in debate. One can label themselves with the title without carrying the spiritual calling from Christ. Pastor’s gifts show themselves differently; yet, let grace note that this might just be a spiritual blind spot. Nevertheless, it is an actual example of the type of thing taking place within the Body of Christ. I ask myself, the float that will be in the parade where they candy will be given out; will it have the actual name of Jesus on it? I guess it might now. Whether the name of Jesus actually appears or not I can almost certainly guarantee you that the name of that “church congregation” will most certainly appear and appear more and/or in larger print than the name of Jesus.

May God forgive the failings of those who are meant to be His spiritual leaders.

Remnant of God

Truth in Love – blog entry

Monday, March 11, 2013

The current SPIRITUAL Remnant of God are those Followers of Christ who exhibit extraordinary devotion, being both proficient and spiritually gifted; these individuals are the faithful dependable heart of the church, given to prayer and are the core of both the local congregation and the universal Body of Christ.

The Body of Christ is made up of all who truly believe in Christ, but in the last days, there is and will be widespread apostasy; a remnant of devoted followers has been called out to keep the principles and commands of God alive and before the people and keep faith in Jesus’ atonement pure and alive. This remnant will bring forewarning of the arrival of the judgment, proclaims salvation through Christ Jesus alone, and heralds the approach of His second coming.

The Remnant will be exiled from the world and apostate church congregations, whether by choice or not, because they are at odds with the direction of the world and mere religious society. The remnant within the Body of Christ are what will remain once the established religious society, who often call themselves the cooperate church, have departed from sincere devoted and brought about the ruin of the purity of Christianity and the Original Church. Of God’s people, many if not most will fall or have fallen away. God prunes His Church and the Remnant could well be all that remains; and He will prune them so that they are purified to His Standard.

These people are the militant spiritual warrior of the Body of Christ. These spiritual activists… confrontational, revolutionary, radical, combative individuals who continue to remind the Church and the world that God did, and does, provide a Standard which He expected, and expects, His people to lift up and present to the world.

The presence, release, and freedom given to the spiritual gift of prophecy is an identifying mark of a remnant church or the absence of the same can be an identifying mark of a church lacking the remnant.

My current focus of ministry is on the spiritual development of these individual…the remnant few. I am slowly divesting myself of all others to make room for helping these spiritual warriors develop the gifts, talents, callings, and abilities God has placed within them.

Prejudice Within

Prejudice Within

Truth in Love – blog entry – Monday, March 04, 2013

 

This was written a while back but I have been waiting for the right time to make it available; God indicated this is the right time, confirmed by the fact that several teachers, preachers, and prophets have been speaking the same things as of late.

We will examine Acts 10:34-36 however, for context read Acts 10 and 11 when times allows.

34 Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. 35 But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him. 36 The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ— He is Lord of all—

Acts 10:34–36 (NKJV)

Christian Denominations have done the same as the Biblical Jews, built a wall or barrier of prejudices. We are but One Body in Christ Jesus and One Church yet; to look around the Christian Community you would not know that to be so.

Diversity seems celebrated nowhere less than in the Christian Community. If we have a mandate to love, which we do, why then is this not true of our Body. No, we are not to love “sin” or even accept sin among us but anyone who has read my writings for very long knows that is not what I am advocating. We completely and totally reject sin but we do not reject one another.

The excuse that doctrinal differences are the reason for our barriers and prejudices is unacceptable unless those doctrinal differences are grounded in A – A denial of the Deity of Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah and the only source for the Salvation of mankind or B – The denial that the Holy Bible is the inspired infallible Word of God. Not anything outside of that will most likely determine if your brother or sister will stand beside you in the Heaven.

These barriers and prejudices are weakening the Body of Christ and they have been doing so for many, many years. Our lack of unity is a blemish on Christ’s very purpose and on what it means to be a part of the family of God. Disunity often born out competition, which is simply disgraceful. We are to be working together to glorify Christ not working against one another to see who can out do who, whose ministry or church can be bigger, who can produce the most worship CD’s or write the most books. Remember if you want to be first you will most likely end up being last – last in the Kingdom of God, maybe first in the world’s standards. How sad if the word’s standards are all you are ever able to achieve.

Manipulate God?

Manipulate God?

Truth in Love – blog entry – Tuesday, February 12, 2013

For those saints who have been around for a while let me ask you a question. Do you ever look around at what is going on in some church congregations, who call themselves Christian, and just shake your head in disbelief? Do you look in the faces of the Christian generation[s] after you and see the vacancy, which is meant to be filled with Christ’s Truth and Passion? Why? Why then, are these things as they are in God’s House? Because the secular world has moved in and took up residence.

Granted, if you are waiting to find a perfect spiritual leader or you are waiting for the perfect church congregation, or if you are simply looking for a spiritual leader with whom you can agree all the time, then you will be looking for a very long time. If we have a brain in our head, we will never agree with another person all the time, nor will we ever find a perfect spiritual leader apart from Christ or perfect saints with whom to fellowship. That however, does not mean we cozy up with a cobra or for that matter partake in what is ungodly and/or worldly to placate our spiritual leader or our brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.

The world, worldly ways, and even new age type practices have entered into almost ninety percent of the American Christian Churches in one form or another. Some are very obvious and some are much more subtle. The individuals speaking out against these practices are growing fewer and fewer and the younger generations are being pulled in deeper and deeper. They have no clue that they are being manipulated and lead astray from Truth – for what they are being told is easier to follow and makes them feel like they are part of something big and important and they are desperate for that type of feeling. The cost for that will one day have to be paid however, and when the tab comes, I fear it will drive them from Christianity for good. Why? Because you cannot manipulate God and that in part is what they are being taught to attempt and do in one form or another. When it all comes crashing down and they one day find out it is not going to work, who will get the blame, not the leaders who taught them incorrectly but most likely God and it is God who will be abandoned. It however, is not God’s fault; it is the fault of those who have chosen to manipulate them for their benefit.

An Example:

Let me start by making a couple of things very clear. Do I believe you should attend a local church? Yes. Do I believe you should understand that congregation’s doctrine and mission, hopefully being in support of both on most points? Yes. Do I believe you should tithe into the work of the spiritual leadership that feeds and ministers to you? Yes. Should you love and support your brothers and sisters in Christ? Yes. Should you allow yourself to be manipulated into any or all of these practices? No!

I have personally witness the weekly practice of cult like manipulation in a Christian Church with a spiritual leader who I believe actually to know God but this area of their leadership is woefully in error. This congregation is weekly exhorted to join hand at the end of service, just before the offering is taken, and recite what amount to nothing more than a new age mantra that is mean to basically brainwash them into believing its content. In essence it indicated that they partnered with that local church in that church’s mission and that they faithfully give ten percent of their income, aka the tithe, to that specific church and in return God is going to do for them.

Now people may be able to be manipulated by brainwashing them through repetition of a creed – I am generous to call it that. You may be able to make them feel more loved and like they are a part of something much bigger by having them join hand while doing so. However, you are not going to make God act on their behalf because you are manipulating them – for the God of the Universe, the Creator of all things, will not have demands placed on Him and will not bow to manipulation. Manipulation comes from a Jezebel type spirit and is a form of witchcraft – the Bible says God hates the practice of witchcraft.

Again, love your local congregation. Respect your spiritual leaders – as they follow God and His Word. Give your tithe from a clean heart and without showmanship. Do not however let yourself become someone else’s drone. Yes, it is harder to stand up and be who God created you to be but never forget God created you to follow Him, His Will and Purpose not man’s and it is your thanks back to Your Creator, for your very life, that you do just that.

When Nothing Works

Truth in Love – blog entry

Monday, January 21, 2013

Read the following as if it were written just for you, as I am going to try to communicate a couple of spiritual principles to you.

You are trying to get all the help you can – yet, nothing is working. Why? Because you are trying to get all the help, you can.

You get angry because people will not appease you but appeasing you is not what you need. All the help in the world is not going to help you. Here is what is going to help you; the applied work of the Cross [Jesus] and Truth [Jesus]. First focus on meeting “Truth” then understanding who Christians are in Christ and the power of the work of the cross.

It seems you do not want to accept the simple truth, you expect it to be so much more – so you keep searching and searching. Moreover, you will keep on searching and searching. You will keep going from person to person, program to program, idea to idea, one experience to another experience [which is going to really make a difference or so your mind tells you] – – doing nothing but wondering around in the wilderness and plenty of people will be more than willing to help you stay there so you can feed their egos – but you will not see the victory you wish to have, the healing you so crave, etc. through these means if you just keep running to __________. When it is all over and you have searched high and low – – suffering needlessly in the process – – you will discover that the two things I told you from the beginning are the only two things that are going to matter in life, healing, change, and spiritual growth – Truth coupled with Jesus’ work on the cross [actually applied] to a life is the only thing that WORKS.

In order to find victory you must be willing to submit to victory. If you are unwilling to submit, it is as if Jesus is working with His hands tied.

What you have to keep in mind is that accessing the spiritual power of the Godhead will always come through Christ, it will always come in Jesus’ name, and it will always be a manifestation of the work of the cross. All spiritual growth, any change you have in your life, any recovery, any healing, any renewal, any answered prayer, anything that is godly and spiritual in a godly nature will come to you and be appropriated to you by applying the work of the cross; that is the only way it is coming to you or going to manifest in or around your life, is by applying the work of the cross.

Become

Truth in Love – blog entry – Monday, January 14, 2013

Become

A principle expressed by many in different ways but stated best, in my opinion, by Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 –1990 and in political service from 1959-1990.

A paraphrase

THOUGHTS

Watch your thoughts or they will become your words.

WORDS

Guard your words or they will become your actions.

ACTIONS

Govern your actions or they will become your habits.

HABITS

Safeguard your habits or they will become your character.

CHARACTER

Value and protect your character for it WILL determine your destiny.

DESTINY

WHAT WE THINK WE BECOME.

Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

Unity of the Body or The New World Order

Truth in Love – blog entry – Friday, December 28, 2012

The unity of the Body of Christ must take place in order for the members of the Body of Christ to stand up against the uniformity of society, i.e. The New World Order. If the Body of Christ is left to stand as individuals, as individual families, as individual congregations, as individual denominations they will be picked off one by one. However, through collectively standing together based upon mutual belief in the infallibility of God’s Word and that Salvation is through Christ Jesus alone; this unity will help Believers stand against the erosion of Christian Rights. A tearing away of the Christian’s rights will be part of what is needed in order to bring the world into uniformity, which will be known as The New World Order and it will be proposed and packaged as a form of unity which helps the world and all peoples therein. It is a false belief that has power because it is a counterfeit of a Truth, which is in fact the unity of One Body of Christ. In every lie, in every counterfeit there are grains of truth.

Wake up – wake up Body of Christ! They are stripping your right away one by one! We do not give up our Christian Rights we lay down our personal rights in order to serve Christ; we do not give up our rights granted to us by Christ.

They are stripping away and destroying the spiritual leaders who can hold up a vision of God’s true Standards, what in Biblical Times we might have called the Prophets and Prophetess, those spiritual leaders whether you call them Prophets or you simply call them Divinely inspired spiritual leaders, either way the world is stealing those from you; they are taking them away from you through the psychiatric system.

Wake up Church! Wake up you are asleep in the Light! Look at what is really going on in the world you are living in. Take your head out of the sand, lift your eyes to heaven, and ask Christ how He wants you to begin to ACT.

Christian Children Persecuted in America

Truth in Love – blog entry – Monday, December 17, 2012

In relation to the persecution of the Church in America.

I was informed this past week by a grandmother in Oklahoma that her grandson, six years old, is being suspended from school for telling his classmates that Jesus healed his ears. The little boy had been enduring for some period of time the need to have tubes within his ears to aid his hearing. At his last doctor’s appointment the doctor told him he would no longer need the tubes. When the six-year-old little boy went back to school, he told many of his classmates about how Jesus had healed his ears. Now he is going to be suspended for, ‘Talking about Jesus at school.’ The issue seems very much attached to the fact this little boy was talking about Jesus and not a generic god by using the term God.

Two points on this matter:

1 – The hate for the name of Jesus is so intense in this country now that they would persecute a six-year-old boy. Does the Body of Christ realize what that means for them and where we are going as a country?

2 – Where are the Christians to help this boy? When I got the report, it was presented as nothing was being done. What will happen to this little boys faith if no one steps up to protect him and stand by his side for what he believes? Not saying he will, but he could be spiritually damaged severely.

Point being… Christians must be there for Christians. We need unity, where unity is based on a true dedication to Jesus and the Word of God. Without unity, without support, without being there for each other when persecution comes, we will see, many cave and crumble under the weight of persecution from the Jesus haters.

When Love Becomes Sin

Truth in Love – blog entry

Thursday, December 13, 2012

When love and peace are promoted to the point that Christians couple themselves with others who despise and reject the Name of Jesus, and who do not see Jesus as the only path to Eternal Salvation, and true Christians begin to promote these individual as co-equals in God’s Redemptive Plan for mankind then the purpose which started out as showing God’s love has become sin. This is not true godly unity; it is a counterfeit of the unity God wishes for His True Church.

I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ’s Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
