In this Season, A Message for YOU

At this time of year, when the world is reminded that God’s son came and dwelt among us, I would like to offer up some words of encouragement.  This world is getting more and more chaotic, frightening and bewildering everyday.  It is nearly impossible to find truth.  It is impossible to know what is the right path, the right choice.  That is unless you know GOD!  That is why He came.

Jesus came in the manner in which he did to show us that TRUTH is very simple and very clear and you don’t need money or power or education to KNOW IT/HIM!  He lived a simple and HONEST and Real existence while he was here.  He did not seek out education, he did not wear a crown, or a title.  He did not brandish his credential or associate with the elite.  He spoke simply and clearly to the people on hilltops, in synagogues, in humble homes and at dinner tables.  

His message was that GOD is no respecter of persons.  He is nor impressed with station, or bloodline, or education. The wisdom of man is FOOLISHNESS TO GOD!

“He deprives of intelligence the chiefs of the earth’s people
And makes them wander in a pathless waste.  Job 12:24

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is the one who catches the wise in their craftiness”;  1 Corinthians 3:19

Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?  1 Corinthians 1:20
and again, “The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are useless.”  1 Corinthians 3:20

but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,  1 Corinthians 1:27

The world would have you believe that man’s wisdom is greater than the Word of God.  That “science” is the answer for everything: your health, your wealth, your purpose, your origins.  Everything that GOD declared to you in HIS Word: that He created you; that He created in the Everything around you in 6 Days; that HE is your provider in EVERY AREA.  He provides your health, your wealth, your purpose, your means of support, the food you eat, the water you drink and the air you breathe, as well as all the beauty that is around you!!  What can man do to improve on GOD’s creation designed and built so perfectly to work together for the good of humanity? NOTHING!!

Man’s so called “Science” is an ever increasing string of theories that can never and WILL NEVER be PROVEN!!  But GOD’s word has never and WILL NEVER be proven wrong.  Every WORD is true and good for

GNOSTICISM

There is actually no such thing as Christian Gnosticism, because true Christianity and Gnosticism are mutually exclusive systems of belief. The principles of Gnosticism contradict what it means to be a Christian. Therefore, while some forms of Gnosticism may claim to be Christian, they are in fact decidedly non-Christian.

Gnosticism was perhaps the most dangerous heresy that threatened the early church during the first three centuries. Influenced by such philosophers as Plato, Gnosticism is based on two false premises. First, it espouses a dualism regarding spirit and matter. Gnostics assert that matter is inherently evil and spirit is good. As a result of this presupposition, Gnostics believe anything done in the body, even the grossest sin, has no meaning because real life exists in the spirit realm only.

Second, Gnostics claim to possess an elevated knowledge, a “higher truth” known only to a certain few. Gnosticism comes from the Greek word gnosis which means “to know.” Gnostics claim to possess a higher knowledge, not from the Bible, but acquired on some mystical higher plane of existence. Gnostics see themselves as a privileged class elevated above everybody else by their higher, deeper knowledge of God.

To discredit the idea of any compatibility between Christianity and Gnosticism, one has only to compare their teachings on the main doctrines of the faith. On the matter of salvation, Gnosticism teaches that salvation is gained through the acquisition of divine knowledge which frees one from the illusions of darkness. Although they claim to follow Jesus Christ and His original teachings, Gnostics contradict Him at every turn. Jesus said nothing about salvation through knowledge, but by faith in Him as Savior from sin. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9). Furthermore, the salvation Christ offers is free and available to everyone (John 3:16), not just a select few who have acquired a special revelation.

Christianity asserts that there is one source of Truth and that is the Bible, the inspired, inerrant Word of the living God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice (John 17:172 Timothy 3:15-17Hebrews 4:12). It is God’s written revelation to mankind and is never superseded by man’s thoughts, ideas, writings, or visions. The Gnostics, on the other hand, use a variety of early heretical writings known as the Gnostic gospels, a collection of forgeries claiming to be “lost books of the Bible.” Thankfully, the early church fathers were nearly unanimous in recognizing these Gnostic scrolls as fraudulent forgeries that espouse false doctrines about Jesus Christ, salvation, God, and every other crucial Christian truth. There are countless contradictions between the Gnostic “gospels” and the Bible. Even when the so-called Christian Gnostics quote from the Bible, they rewrite verses and parts of verses to harmonize with their philosophy, a practice that is strictly forbidden and warned against by Scripture (Deuteronomy 4:212:32Proverbs 30:6Revelation 22:18-19).

The Person of Jesus Christ is another area where Christianity and Gnosticism drastically differ. The Gnostics believe that Jesus’ physical body was not real, but only “seemed” to be physical, and that His spirit descended upon Him at His baptism, but left Him just before His crucifixion. Such views destroy not only the true humanity of Jesus, but also the atonement, for Jesus must not only have been truly God, but also the truly human (and physically real) man who actually suffered and died upon the cross in order to be the acceptable substitutionary sacrifice for sin (Hebrews 2:14-17). The biblical view of Jesus affirms His complete humanity as well as His full deity.

Gnosticism is based on a mystical, intuitive, subjective, inward, emotional approach to truth which is not new at all. It is very old, going back in some form to the Garden of Eden, where Satan questioned God and the words He spoke and convinced Adam and Eve to reject them and accept a lie. He does the same thing today as he “prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). He still calls God and the Bible into question and catches in his web those who are either naïve and scripturally uninformed or who are seeking some personal revelation to make them feel special, unique, and superior to others. Let us follow the Apostle Paul who said to “test everything. Hold on to the good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21), and this we do by comparing everything to the Word of God, the only Truth.

All Religion is man made as a tool to control the masses.  It is based on a hierarchy which states that those at the top maintain a higher level of KNOWLEDGE that is not available to the ignorant masses.  They teach that only those who are educated “by them” and progresses through the steps they created can come to a higher understanding of their own nature as the nature of GOD or the gods.  Those who are not educated/enlightened are destined to be slaves to the will of the elite and subject to their will and judgement.  

It is the pride of man that causes him to stumble. The elite believe that they are so smart they can do better than GOD.  The masses don’t want to look like fools, and so they submit to the teachings of man.  They believe what they are told by the “wisemen”  over the WORD of GOD.   

Men of “science” will laugh and say that anyone who believes the bible is a fool.  They say that God expects you to walk merely by Faith, with no evidence to support it.   That is a lie right out of HELL.  Yes, without FAITH it is impossible to believe GOD.  But, there is abundant evidence that GOD’s Word is true.  EVERY WORD.  There is abundant evidence of God’s love not only for humanity but for all of creation.  There is abundant evidence that JESUS CHRIST is alive and well, at least for anyone who believes in Him.  For He comes in and sups with us, JUST AS HE PROMISED!!

Still, GOD requires that you come to him IN FAITH.  For when we turn to Him in FAITH, that faith is the substance that brings forth the promise of GOD in our lives.  

For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Through faithwe understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

By faith Abeloffered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

By faith Enochwas translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: 10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised. 12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

13 These all died in faith,not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.

15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 19 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come. 21 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.

22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel;and gave commandment concerning his bones.

23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment.

24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;  25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; 26Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. 27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. 28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them. 

29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.

31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:

33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.  34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.  35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance;that they might obtain a better resurrection:  36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:  37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;  38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. 39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: 40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

How can we enter the kingdom of heaven

The truth is that “SCIENCE” also demands that you believe by FAITH.  As none of their “theories” are fact.  In fact, most of them not only cannot be proven, but they have been proven WRONG!!

Yet, humans, no wanting to be thought a fool, will follow BLINDLY the popular teachings of the day.  Based on NOTHING!  They those who TRUST and BELIEVE the WORD of GOD they call fools!!

I WILL GLADLY BE A FOOL FOR GOD ANY DAY!!  Let the word mock and call me every kind of name, I stand in FAITH believing that GOD’s WORD is true!

God has shown me, that HE is all we need.  When we come to Him and trust HIM, HE will lead us to all TRUTH.  Not only that, HE will TEACH US everything we need to know, or want to know.

Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Jeremiah 33:3

God does not want ignorant, mindless, slaves!  GOD wants those who love HIM and CHOOSE HIM.  He always wants what is best for YOU.  He wants to see you become all that you were meant to be.

YOU are His child.  No parent wants to see their children fail and be miserable.  When you have a child, you want them to be happy.  You want them to find their place, that place where they are happy, loved and successful.   That is how God feels about YOU.  He loves you more than any human could every love you.  His love is endless, bountiful, all encompassing and passionate.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Jeremiah 29:11

Do NOT BE AFRAID to stand for TRUTH!!  Do not be afraid to think for yourself and study to show yourself approved.  Find your own way, do not follow the crowd.  Just because the rest of the world is doing it does not make it right.  In fact, nine times out of ten, if the rest of the world is doing it, it is wrong.  This world is at enmity with GOD.  So don’t expect the world to love you!  If you stand up for truth, you will be hated.  You will be abused, attacked, reviled and rejected!!  If you are not… you better question where you are failing!

Just remember, we are already dead!   We are the walking dead.  Death holds no threat for us, because we know that our SPIRIT is alive in Christ and we are headed for GLORY!!  DO NOT BE AFRAID!!  HE IS ALWAYS WITH YOU.  His EYES are ALWAYS UPON YOU!

“His Eyes”  Lyrics  AZ Lyrics.com

Verse 1

Sometimes His eyes were gentle and filled with laughter
And sometimes they cried
Sometimes there was a fire of Holy anger
In Jesus’ eyes

But the eyes that saw hope in the hopeless
That saw through the fault to the need
Are the same eyes that look down from heaven
Into the deepest part of you and me

Verse 2

Sometimes His voice comes calling like rolling thunder
Or like driving rain
And sometimes His voice is quiet and we start to wonder
If He knows our pain

But He who spoke peace to the water
Cares more for our hearts than the waves
And the voice that once said, “You’re forgiven.”
Still says, “You’re forgiven”, today.. Today

Verse 3

Sometimes I look above me when stars are shining
And I feel so small
How could the God of heaven and all creation
Know I’m here at all

But then in the silence He whispers:
“My child, I created you too
and you’re my most precious creation
I even gave my Son for you.”

Chorus

And His eyes are always upon you
His eyes never close in sleep
And no matter where you go
You will always be in His eyes
In His eyes
