In the Begining….God…did what?

“And to every beast of the earth and every bird of the air and every creature that crawls upon the earth—everything that has the breath of life in it—I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. And God looked upon all that He had made, and indeed, it was very good.”Genesis 1

Do​es​ God want us to suffer and take prescribed opioids, or harm our selves with alcohol for pain and cancer issues? No, God loves His children. Does He want us to take our life when pain, PTSD, and dementia take our life before we die on His timeline? No!  He gave us God’s own healing herbs. As Paul told Timothy “Take a little wine for your stomach’s sake” Wait! does that mean I should take an insecticide, roll it up and smoke it? Tobacco makes a useful insecticide. What does it do to your body?  Do we please God when we pig out on fast food and sugar?  Does my freedom and yours in Christ give us permission to drink poison until we harm our body? No, alcohol is not forbidden, but drunks and overindulgence in anything is wrong. Food, exercise, work, sloth are all abused. We are free of the old agreements, the rules and rituals that could not please us, we humans rebelled under the Law in the agreement Moses was involved with. Have you ever been in a contract? When you get a new contract can you add the old contract to the new? Duh! Why would you do that? Adding something that did not work to the perfect plan is stupid.  Jesus was God’s plan to save us from our selves. (read Acts 2: especially the part about the Church and what they did)   Today I am blessed every minute with His presence and comfort from knowing, like a little child that God loves me so much, the great giver gave the greatest gift of Jesus, the Christ, His Grace will cover me, cleanse me, so that I may stand in His presence (Sin cannot stand in His presence).  We, with life-impairing disease and injuries, should find comfort in the Grace God gives freely and ignore the rules and rituals based on man-made religion. Take the yoke of Jesus and no other master.  Why are we divided? Who has divided us? Tradition? A latter-day revelation from some cult? The latest cult that says Jesus is less than God or is Jesus Isaiah’s “Mighty God”?  Jesus is my savior, not religion!   “I have other sheep who are not of this fold. I must also lead those, and they shall hear My voice, and there shall be one flock, one Shepherd.”  John 10:16   Why are we divided?

When God created the universe*, earth, and humans the record was written to be read by the Hebrews, Sons of Abraham. The knowledge they had then of physics, biology, technology, was limited. When we read the Torah, the Greek translation, with Hebrew understanding we can see the great Love God has for His creation. We are gifted everything. Then here comes sin, missing the mark, goofing up, rebellion, arrogance, anger, rage, murder, gossips, and liers, thieves, sexually immoral, worshipers of idols, unbelief/rejection of Truth, are not meeting God’s standard. The world screams “That is not fair!” As they find some Phd, talk show host, or Reverend to tell them it is OK to marry your dog or your neighbor’s wife. Any “Church” reverend, pope tells you something is OK you best check with the boss, God may require our obedience, but the rules and rituals laid down by men are not founded on the Rock. Jesus is the Rock of God. Any religion (denomination or division is not of God) or cult is of the accuser Satan. This is the lamb that speaks with a dragon’s tongue Rev 13:11. A false Church that looks correct like a lamb but speaks with Satan’s mouth.

We don’t have to live on the wrong side of God. We can enjoy the Holy Spirit ( Wonderful Counselor” Isa 9:6 For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace.), God’s Word, a light for our feet, not a searchlight for what the world offers.  We have the right as followers of Jesus Christ to instant communication with God ( They Mighty God of Isaiah,  prayer, ) We rely on friends to support us. We have always worked and practiced giving to those in need. We see there is no need for a tithe (payment of the Hebrew nation to God of the old agreement, an average of 3 years was around 28%)

Lemongrass and Aloe two of God’s healing herbs. I use Lemongrass tea for bladder cancer after a Vietnamese friend told me about the plant’s use in VN medicine.  God healed me after three tumors were removed. We asked the elders of the congregation we met with to follow James’ advice for the sick. James 5:14-15, The next check up revealed no scar tissue, clean smooth skin, and today I am in remission and said to be cancer free for today.
We have access no limit, no dropped calls on God’s terms. The only person that places us outside of God’s Grace is our rejection of His Gift, “The Way, The Truth, The Life” of the Gospels. No one comes to the Father without Jesus, we are too sinful without Grace!
Therefore let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.   Hebrews 4:16

Our communication is direct and immediate. We need no star, saint, crystal, statue or idol between us for best communication. The powerful praying of a follower of Jesus can penetrate any structure, cross any divide, lift any burden, endure any punishment and make the one being transformed  blessed (Happy)

For God is one, and there is one Mediator of God and of men, the Man Christ Jesus, 1 Tim 2:5

Do​es​ God want us to suffer and take prescribed opioids for pain and cancer issues? No, God loves His children. He gave us God’s own healing herb. As Paul told Timothy “Take a little wine for your stomach’s sake” We with life-impairing disease and injuries should find comfort in the Grace God gives freely and ignore the rules and rituals based on man-made religion. Jesus is my savior, not religion! Semper Fi!

 

* Rev 4:11 Our Lord and our God, you deserve to receive the glory and the honor and the power for you created everything, and they exist because you wanted them to, so they were created.”

Questions we ask?

Phil Drysdale a British follower of Jesus I read online asked these questions and I have tried to answer them as positively as I can.  Phil has a unique perspective and many times reading his blog or listening to his Grace Course I say”Why did not I think of that?” I have little to disagree with him on and those points won’t matter off this planet very much because we are covered in a deluge of grace.

  • What are the questions that bounce around in your head when you hear the words, Sex, Sexuality and Gender?                                                                                                  God was clear on how we were made. even in a story that has been twisted by some. God’s plan right down to our details in our physical bodies was male and female. Matt 19:4, Sin has corrupted us, just like the drunk that drives and kills. Sin has messed up our DNA. Culture has poisoned our brain into thinking some naked drag queen or bizarre sex act is normal because it is on the one-eyed god in our living room, laptop or handheld in our face.
  • What do you think are the important things I should cover?                                      Jesus said all the things that can cause us to sin and rebel comes from inside, our heart. Mark 7:21. Lust was just one of the number, Sexual immorality is sin against God’s plan. Does not matter who does it. I am so glad we can be forgiven when we repent and accept Grace.  Rev 2 tells the Churches of Christ to Repent!
  • What do you want more information on?  How to love my neighbor when I see sin in their life? Rev 9:21, James 5:20
  • What do you think are the key passages I should look at? Jesus teaching on the heart, Matt 15:19,  The things in Old Testament and in the new God finds abhorrent, hates or particularly speaks on like your talk on burning children and God said I have never thought of that! Luke 16:15, Romans 1:30
  • What do you see as the key issues of the day in this area?                                         Many are told that this (fill in the blank) is a normal sex act, normal marriage, normal lifestyle and we will marry you and any sex you have will be blessed by God. or this quote from a man that loves to have sex with a man, “It is ok with God if I love the person before we have sex! My reverend/priest told me that.” The clear issue is rebellion towards God. Perhaps the person is so bitter towards God, because of a bad experience with church, parents, priest/pastor that they are mad at God and just like an unruly child play in the mud for spite! Hebrews 12:15 
  • What do you think God is saying about this topic?     If David had not followed up after seeing Bathsheba on the roof bathing, maybe he would not have messed up? The “Ifs” get us on this. If I had not kissed her or him, If I had not asked her/him to lunch? The heart knows what you wanted and the devil may be happy with your sin but he did not make you do it. Satan does speak to you through all the voices of the world. He is the deceiver.    John 8:44                                                God hates sin. Grace covers all sin except that that is unrepented of. James said much about sin. James said a person is enticed or tempted and if they allow that lust to have its way leads to sin. The temptation is not sinning, the action on the lust of the heart/mind and a follow-through of the body is the sin. 
  • That the sin of Lust is right up there with gossips, liars, thieves, haters, bigots, those that harm children and idol worship.  Can we be forgiven? Yes, Romans 8:1
