Ye are My friends - pt 1

If everyone could read everyone else's thoughts and know all of their sins, nobody would be friends with anyone.  That right there should tell you about the real climate and condition in this fabricated world, because there's a lot of fakery and self-righteousness in the air. 

Everyone needs Jesus.  No man walking this earth is clean, pure and sinless.  Only Jesus was, is and will be perfect from everlasting to everlasting.  If all of your thoughts and sins were revealed to men, you'd be alone in this world.  And if you think the greatest sinners are sitting behind bars, think again. 

The kenite pharisees, in Jesus time, were murderers and responsible for the death of Christ.  They weren't doing time in prison, neither were the corrupt politicians, publicans and money changers.  How's it any different today?  Except, the wicked have become more clever and now control most of the world, through globalization and ongoing plans for a one world government.  The masses in advanced nations have gained literacy, but have lost the ability to think for themselves, and to discern between good and evil.  That's not much of a trade off.  Don't put your strength and trust in the arms and hands of men, or in their precepts and systems.  They will fail you.  Put your full confidence and faith in the Rock, our LORD. 

John 15:12  "This is My commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you."

John 15:13  "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."

John 15:14  "Ye are My friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you."

John 15:15  "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."

It all comes down to believing and accepting Jesus Christ as GOD's Son and Savior, and asking Him for forgiveness of your sins.  Because without Him, you are indeed alone and you will die alone.  Why not have an awesome relationship, with the SON of GOD, Jesus Christ, as your best friend and Savior?  Let Him be your everything, because He deserves first place in your heart, soul and mind.  There's no greater love than the only begotten, perfect, Son of GOD laying down His life on the cross for you.  If you love Christ, then obey His commandments, and love one another, by placing His Word in the minds of men.

Romans 5:6  "For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly."

Romans 5:7  "For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die."

Romans 5:8  "But GOD commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

Jesus didn't die for the self-righteous, He died for sinners.  The self-righteous wear Christianity like it's a luxury brand article of clothing.  They look to themselves for salvation and interpret the Word through indoctrinated eyes.  You'll probably better off amongst heathen acquaintances and friends.  At least, you can plant more seeds with non-believers, because new cloth (truth) cannot be sewn onto an old garment, neither new wine (truth) put into old bottles (Mar 2:21-22).  Garments comprised of traditions cannot be patched with new cloth of truth. 

When GOD forgives you, sin no more and move forward with your relationship in Christ.  The condition to be a representative of Jesus, even a friend, is to be a doer of His WORD.  So how does a friend of Jesus know all things from the FATHER?  By studying His WORD.  Search the scriptures daily and study to show thyself approved unto GOD, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth" (2 Tim 2:15).

1 Peter 3:8  "Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:"

1 Peter 3:9  "Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing."

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

1 Peter 3:11  "Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it."

Have compassion and mercy towards others.  Gossip and tearing others down are not fruits of the Holy Spirit, but of the heathen and wicked.  Seek peace and the ways of the LORD.  Treat others how you want to be treated and never fight evil with evil. 

1 Peter 3:16  "Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ."

1 Peter 3:17  "For it is better, if the will of GOD be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing."

1 Peter 3:18  "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to GOD, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:"

Jesus Christ came through the matrix, or womb, born of a virgin, so that you don't have to suffer destruction and the lake of fire.  By your faith and belief in Him as Lord and Savior, who died on the cross for your sins, and through your repentance to the FATHER, in Jesus name, you can be saved.  You receive forgiveness and your soul receives eternal life.

Christ defeated death, which is to say, satan.  Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have the victory over the enemy.  When the silver cord is loosed, or the fragile jar, or golden bowl, is broken (meaning death of the physical body), your soul departs from the flesh life and returns unto GOD, who made it.  The flesh body is done away with and returns back to dust, the earth, from whence it came, but your soul goes on to live eternally in His kingdom.

The WORD was made flesh and dwelt among us.  He came to offer His own body as the perfect sacrifice, to atone for the sins of His people.  He healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, controlled the winds and waves of the sea, walked on water, and turned water into wine.  Why wouldn't you want forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and a relationship which exceeds all others, from the SON of GOD?  Jesus, full of grace and truth, can be with you through everything in life and He will never leave nor forsake you.  Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.  

You'll never find a perfect friend in this world, neither will you ever be a perfect friend to others.  Back in the 1980s and early 90s, the media dynasty heavily promoted songs and movies about love and friendships.  The hidden agenda was to promote the worship of relationships, such as lovers and best friends.  GOD was intentionally left out of the equation and true love was based on human relationships, instead of Christ.  People bought into the idea of searching for the perfect mate or friends, turning marriage and relationships, between people, into a religion.  A spouse, or the search for one, should not become an idol or person of worship.  You don't need a spouse to make your life complete, you need Jesus.  When you put any relationship, whether with a person or thing, before your relationship with GOD, you'll create a host of problems in your life.  Only Jesus is perfect and it requires a perfect person to fit the role of a perfect friend.  And if you're blessed with a spouse, don't expect your mate to be perfect, because you certainly aren't yourself.

Christ's love and care for you is as close as any man, or woman, who cares for their spouse.  Often times, a person's spouse is also considered a soul mate or best friend.  The LORD JESUS CHRIST loves and protects His bride.  You'll receive that constant protection, if you are part of the many-membered body of Christ.  Believe it because it's His Promise.

John 13:1  "Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that His hour was come that He should depart out of this world unto the FATHER, having loved His own which were in the world, He loved them unto the end."

Feed your Hunger with the Living WORD - pt 2

Isaiah 58:9  "Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and He shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;" 

Exercise your mind and strengthen your health in the WORD of GOD.  Ask our FATHER to give you your daily bread, morning by morning, to hear as the learned.  Vain religion is empty of the WORD of GOD and in the midst of the congregation.  A vain man is empty on Truth and speaketh vanity.  He's an empty vessel sitting inside an empty church. 

Stop being a judgmental hypocrite.  Take a good, honest look at your own shortcomings and work on improving yourself.  Eat the WORD, fill your vessel, and share the surplus when your cup runneth over with truth.  Unyoke yourself from the traditions of men and yoke yourself with the Living WORD. 

When you pray, you expect GOD to hear what you have to say, don't you?  So when do you make time to hear His response, as well as other important things that He wants for you to know?  He wrote you a letter and it's called the Holy Bible.

If you possess literacy, there are no excuses for not studying GOD's Letter to You.  If Christians in our modern society would put at least half the effort into studying GOD's WORD as they do towards educational degrees and certificates, their lives would improve greatly.  More folks would be able to discern between high levels of good and evil and discontinue their praise for men and their traditions. 

Job 15:31  "Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence."

The lukewarm Christians measure all improvements via gain, worldly standards and carnal measurements, which makes them carnal and not much different than non-believers.  If you live by vanity and vain words, you'll die by them.  Live the agenda cain way of life, on false security and worldly gain, and you'll die in that illusion.  Everyone gets what's coming to them. 

Isaiah 58:10  "And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:"

Isaiah 58:11  "And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not."

Preach to the dead bones, the spiritually dead, and the LORD will satisfy and fill your soul, making fat your bones.  The Living Water, Jesus Christ, will nourish your spirit unto good health and bring your mind out of darkness.

You get to know our FATHER and Jesus CHRIST by studying His Letter to you, verse by verse, with understanding from the Holy Spirit.  Satan knows that you cannot physically see or hear GOD, so he has fabricated substitutes, to deceive people into turning to the wrong pastors and feeding troughs.  Stick with GOD's WORD and not the precepts of men or their organized religions.  Stop basing spirituality purely on emotions, because dogs and cats have emotions, too.  As a Christian, you can give a thousand excuses on why you won't study.  But in the end, it's all on you.  The precepts and fables of men will lead you astray and keep the Four Hidden Dynasties concealed to your eyes.  

2 Timothy 2:15  "Study to shew thyself approved unto GOD, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth."

Deuteronomy 11:18  "Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes."

You lay up the WORD in your heart.  You must build up the spiritual library in your mind.  You engrave into your being.  It is the spiritual discipline to change the default, or carnal, setting within you.  Do not reference to the carnal mindset, but the WORD of GOD.

Just like with learning a new skill, you must do it over and over again, until it's part of your reflex, your instant reaction.  The spiritually meek and hungry will be fed with the WORD and gainsayers will be shamed.  Spiritual exercise and meditation... Jesus showed us time and time again how it's done.  That's why we are to meditate on His WORD daily.

GOD brings wisdom and understanding to past, in your mind, once you apply the WORD in your thoughts, words and actions.  You can memorize the entire Bible or read everything there is to learn about a subject such as swimming.  But you'll never become a real Christian, or swimmer, until you've actually applied what you've learned and put it into practice.  Sit on a pew and hear sermons all you want, but it means very little if you never put in the effort and work.  Only when you immerse yourself into a body of water, will you know if you'll sink or swim.

There are no gray areas in the WORD.  Gray is lukewarm.  You either have faith or you don't.  You became successful either by the doing things according to ways of men or of GOD.  There is no righteousness or true success without Him.  If you think that you obtained your success with your own hands, you've allowed yourself to be deceived.  The path that you took required that you put someone or something else before GOD.  That something else that you turned into an idol, became satan's bargain for you.  All things carnal, satan can offer, and none of them go with you when you die.

If the Word of GOD is not in your thoughts and words, then they will not transfer into your actions and works.  Someone who receives instruction on how to swim will not be able to swim until he puts it into practice and work.  Many folks are hearers only, but they rarely do the work or apply the Word in their lives.  Wisdom can be heard, but you must apply it before GOD's wisdom will bring to pass understanding in your heart and mind.
