#Holiness,#Selfishness,#Lies

It has been awhile since the last post.  A lot has happened.  A lot has been seen and experienced.  The one thing that is of the most important to the blood-bought Church is the word of God.  As the Lord delays His coming, more and more the word of God is being changed by man to accommodate people.  More and more those that say they love God, fall out with the Church and have a problem with correction and being told they are wrong and need to change.  It seems that the very elect is being fooled by their own foolishness, disobedience, and selfishness.

And Heaven forbids if you talk about money.  The worst ones are those that profess to have the Holy Ghost!!!  Since when did the Saints of God get so attached to money and forget about the work of the Lord?  Since when did the Saints of God become more concerned with their feelings than with doing what thus said the Lord?  Since when?

Stop watering down the Gospel.  Stop trying to change the meaning of scriptures so flesh can be satisfie…

#Excuses,#Tell the Truth, #Correction,#Training Children,#teaching children

There is a scripture in the Bible that says, "Now, no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby."  Hebrew 12:11  Then Hebrews 12: 7 says, "If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?  Hebrews 12:8 says, "But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons."  Proverbs 22:6 says, "Train up a child in he way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it"

Chastening- correcting mistakes and curbing passions;  to inflict suffering upon for purposes of moral improvement.

Chastisement- severe criticism; a rebuke or strong reprimand.

Train- to develop or form the habits, thoughts, or behavior of a child or other person by discipline and instruction: to make proficient by instruction and practice

#Understanding,#Scripture, #Pay the Price,#The Truth

Praise the Lord!!

My soul delights in the Lord.  He is so good and kind and faithful to His children.  Years, I mean years I have pondered the scripture found in Proverbs 23:23 that says, "Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding".  I have asked the Lord for years, what does buy the truth and sell it not mean.  When I  first got saved, I thought it meant, buying Bibles and study materials.  Wrong.

This past Friday, the question crossed my mind again.  With so much going on with those that profess Christ, the backsliders, the lukewarm, no interest in the work of the Lord, the question came back to my mind.  For regardless of what people do, the word of God can not be changed for anybody.

So what does it mean to buy the truth and sell it not?  It fell in my heart to turn on some holiness preaching.  The preacher was saying the church is not cheap.  He went on to teach about what something cheap means, what it looks like, how something che…

The Flesh

According to the Bible the Flesh and the spirit of God do not agree. They are not the same. You can not live a Holy life in the flesh.#ohamen

Feeling Affect Discernment,#Feelings, #Obedience, Not Feelings

I had asked the Lord a lot a questions recently concerning why folks hop from church to church.  I asked why is there such a lack in obeying the Bible or at least striving to obey.  Why is there so much slack.

Around four o'clock in the morning, Monday May 1st, I got an answer.

When the Lord calls a person into the ministry, He places this desire for souls to be saved inside them.  He places a strong desire for the word of God, compromised.  He puts a drive in the soul to seek righteousness.  He puts a love for His people and their well being in the heart.  He puts a love for the church in the heart.  He puts a strong dislike for sin in the heart.

But, what happens when the people do not want to hear the truth?  Why are people going from assembly to assembly, running here and there.  Why have the people stop seeking the face of the Lord?  Why so easily discouraged and wanting to give up?  Why is there no drive to walk upright and contend for Holiness as in times past?  Why are chi…

#Easter, #Resurrection, #Passover,#Jesus,#Holiness

There are so many names for this one day out of the year.  Which one is right?  Which one does Jesus teach?

In the Old Testament, God told Israel to keep the Passover.  It represented the fact that God delivered Israel out of the land of Egypt and out of Pharaoh's hands.  It is called Passover because the death angel passed over all the houses that had blood on the door post and lintels.   There was also a special diet that accompanied the Passover in the Old Testament.  This teaching can be found in the book of Exodus, starting at chapter 12.

After the instructions from God on the Passover, God gave Israel twelve commandments to live by.  This can be found in Exodus Chapter 20, verses 1 through 17.

The word Easter is found in the Bible one time, in the book of Acts 12:4.  It is only mentioned.  The Bible does not teach Easter.  Easter is a pagan celebration.  It has nothing to do with Jesus, the Church or salvation.  Bunny rabbits, colored eggs, easter clothes, easter candy, east…
