Fear is a Distrust in God

Fear is distrusting in God. Adam said in the garden, “I heard your voice and I was afraid.” This was the first time fear happened. God knew by Adam’s fear that a transition took place in his thinking. Adam had to be saved, and fear was just the first symptom.
 
It was the Apostle John who said, “He who fears has not been made perfect in love, because fear involves torment” showing how destructive fear is. And that “perfect love casts out all fear”. And for those of us who have been made perfect in love? We fear not, even of the biggest enemies and obstacles to humanity. God is bigger than these. Contrary to modern thinking, God is the one who says to the waves: go this far. And God is the one who holds the stars and galaxies in their orbits. If this were not so, we wouldn’t have the reliability or the consistency of the Northern star called Polaris that has been reliable for navigation, unchanged for as long as man has been around, way before GPS. Those who are in darkness refute this because it is to the Glory of the creator God for this regularity to confound their wisdom. But scripture says: Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.¬†10¬†But God has revealed¬†them to us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.¬†11¬†For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.¬†12¬†Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.¬†13¬†Which things also we speak, not in the words which man‚Äôs wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.¬†14¬†But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know¬†them, because they are spiritually discerned.¬†15¬†But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.¬†16¬†For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
When scripture is interpretated by a fear driven mind.
 
It is the multiple scenarios and whole end times theories that are driven by man’s default operation of fear, being energized by man’s archenemy the devil, who knows scripture. By fear, people who are made in the image of God, give their power to that enemy by not trusting God. Satan is like “a roaring lion seeking who he may devour, experienced by the brotherhood in the world”? Of which some of us are not of this world as Christ is not. Satan in this way, detours the sheep of God wending their way through multiple theories using expired old Covenant concepts, all of which Christ fulfilled. “All the law and the prophets were till John the Baptist. Now the Kingdom is preached and all are entering”. Are you? And “of those born among women there is none greater than John the Baptist. However those who are least in the Kingdom are greater than he”. Are you? If you answered no, you don’t know the things that have been freely given to us “in Christ”. Are you?
All of the end time predictions throughout all time till now have been proven false. We see wickedness abound, but that should serve as a warning to “come out of her My people lest you partake of her sins and recieve of her judgments” because “God has not appointed us to wrath, but for obtaining the Glory of God”. And “if we judge ourselves, we shall not be judged”. And directly from the mouth of Christ “whoever believes in Me shall not go into judgment, but has past from death to life” as a product of faith and not something gifted after a supposed 2nd coming.¬†
For those who espouse end time scenarios as just spelled out, they are blind leading the blind into a ditch.
We must learn to exercise our senses to discern between good and evil and we learn that over time.
The arch rival with God, when fully developed, is a government system He calls “a beast” because a god it is not. It is powerless to save. It is not a save all or a savior but a mimicker, a wannabe, a look alike and a deceiver. It has a mouth of a lamb, but teeth of a lion. Christ said you will know them by their fruits.
It takes on a similitude of the promises and provisions of God, but in a carnal way. So instead of dressing ourselves in God’s promises and putting on Christ one attribute at a time, these people who are governed by fear, run to the safety of governments and institutions, and in doing so pass right by the provisions from God.¬†God said to Abraham “I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” But these seek protection elsewhere.
   
current system today that people run 2 out of fear for protection and in so doing this they put themselves In Harm’s Way.¬†
 
Going to scripture for end times and eschatology, is like a room with no corners. You find yourself going in circles with no peace. There is no consensus from anybody on end times. It divides the flock, and disperses and dismembers the body more than any other topic. There are more denominations and more sects and Cults on this topic. That is an abuse of scripture. Scripture is given for our understanding of God, and for our transformation. As scripture says “we are being transformed into the same full image from the glory to the glory as by the spirit”. We are to renew the spirit of our mind with these truths to more clearly associate with the Living God. This is the purpose of scripture and not end times. I repeat not end times. That is a dead end road. Even as the Pharisees ask Christ when his kingdom would come, he said it does not come with (carnal) observation” so you should quit using scripture for that purpose.¬† he And of the Pharases that did that? Christ said “do not go after them. They are the blind following the blind into the ditch. It is the gospel of fear and fear is the enemy of Faith.
 
When we get together and talk about all the social ills of today, and government abuse, and secret societies, we energize that God. We glorify that God. And we insult the God that provides salvation. God sent his son into the world not to destroy the world but to save it. John 3:17. When Christ prayed to the Father for us and said Father, I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil. But this we just cannot believe and fear another.
 
Paul the Apostle prayed that we would know the power that is in us — each of us individually — as those who have faith in Christ, the power God the Father showed when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him far above all powers and principalities. Paul wanted us to know this power because that’s where we can go with our tools in faith and trust in the Living God, we can be resurrected by this power in us. But in so doing, by rejecting this power that is in us we resurrect our old enemy, Satan who was destroyed at the cross. And the power of resurrection gifted to us if appropriated by fear, is in turn used to open up the bottomless pit. “Those who lead with the sword will be killed by the sword” and those who live by fear shall have the thing come upon them that they fear most.
Love motivates, fear paralyzes, 
so you decide. Align yourself with the Living God through faith, or align yourself with Satan by fear. Which one is your motivator.
If we approach scripture with a fear-based mind it gives us one message. But if we approach it with the love of God we get another message. For after this day is over, after every end-time prophecy has been scoffed at, the only thing left to talk about is the Living God..
The choice is yours. The kingdom of God is at hand. Whatever is Noble whatever is just whatever is pure whatever is wholesome, think upon these things in the peace of God will be with you amen.

Salvation was from the Jews

Jesus Christ in John 4. said that salvation was of the Jews. And it’s here that one could be confused into thinking that the Jews possessed salvation the whole time, but that is not the case. They were looking for it too. For if they would have had salvation the whole time then they would know what it is. But they did not. The question is do we?


You see if salvation was something easily to be grasped, then why is there so much confusion about it even today?


Salvation means saving, and many people think this happens at a second coming, that Jesus Christ comes then to rescue us because that’s what a savior does. A savior saves. To this the Jews were looking for.


But “God so loved the world that He sent his only begotton son into the world not to condemn the world but to save it”. (John 3.16+17) So according to scripture as seen here, that event has taken place. And that event was The Son at the cross. This is God’s saving and cure for all humanity. Even as 1 John 2.1 says that “He is the propitiation for the whole world”. Each one of us needs to go there for the saving of God. Each one in our own order at our own appointed time of visitation, so we hope you are listening so your time does not pass you by.

You see salvation is not a thing. It is not an object or an event. It is not the culmination of time but a person. Salvation is of the Jews, because they were the delivery mechanism by which it (He) came. And once again salvation is not an event but a person, so you know where to go. 

The old Covenant says that there would be “one who would come forth from them who is from old of everlasting”, meaning an eternal one. They were also told that the Savior/Messiah would come whose name was Shiloh. That he would come riding on a foal of a colt. The Jews did not possess salvation because they rejected it because that “it” was a “Him”. They were looking for a king in Royal apparel and rejected the pauper “on a foal of a colt”.What are you expecting?


So why would we say that the Jews were only the delivery mechanism? That they did not possess Him? Because they collectively rejected Him out of their own words “Then all the people said, His blood be upon us and our children” “Matthew 27.25”
To set the record straight, Savior came from the Jewish system, but they in their totallity rejected Him. This is why Jesus said ‚ÄúO Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones all those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers¬†her brood under¬†her¬†wings, but you were not willing!35¬†See!¬†Your house is left to you desolate;. They did not know their time of visitation, and for this they were denied, put out of business, condemned and destroyed. “Till not one stone was left upon¬†
Even as John said “He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But to as many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become His children, even to those who believe in His Name”. That is those of all Nations that the scripture calls Gentiles.
Here is what Paul had to say about The Savior being a person and not an event “Fellow children of Abraham and you God-fearing¬†Gentiles, it is to us that this message of¬†salvation¬†has been sent.
And “Therefore I want you to know that God‚Äôs¬†salvation¬†has been sent to the¬†Gentiles, and they will listen!‚ÄĚ
So when Paul says “salvation is of the Jews: this is what he meant. If the Jews actually possess salvation they would not have been replaced. Even as it says in Hebrews “if the word spoken through Angels prove steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received its just reward, what makes us think we shall escape if we neglect such a great salvation that was first spoken of by the Lord and confirmed to those who heard him by the power of the Holy Spirit”. Such are we. The Lord spoke it first, not the jews. The Jews couldn’t even hear it.

 Salvation simply put is a person. And that person is the one the scriptures called Jesus Christ. He is the Christ, the Messiah, the Savior. Meaning He is the one who saves. He is the deliverer and the rescuer to the one who has faith in Him.

As a matter of fact that’s what the word Jesus traced back through its roots through the Greek and into the Hebrew means “the one who saves”. In Hebrew God’s name and savior comes from the same base word.

In the book of Hebrews when speaking of Joshua from the old Covenant, the Greek word that is used there is the exact same one we use for Jesus. (Hebrews 4.8) And it was said of this one that¬† “He shall save my people” and He didn’t save the Jews.
Simply put, the savior saves people from the demise of all their fears, to the one who has faith in Christ. And Christ did a great job of that at the cross. He delivered all the goods that God in the beginning gave to Adam that he squandered. Christ’s last words at the cross were ” it is finished”. And we know that payment for the sins of the whole world was rendered and accepted because Christ was raised from the dead to die no more. What all the blood sacrifices dimly portrayed for all Israel then the Jews, was hanging their limp and dead for all of mankind, meaning Gentiles, to look upon and be saved in purpose, for all would be believers to receive salvation the person and not an event. It does not matter if you claim to be Jewish or Christian, if you think the saving from Earth is the saving at a coming event, maybe like at the proverbial second coming? Or for the Jews they expected that at the first coming, because you expect an event you are both equally lost and deserving of the same demise. The Jews were cut off because “they knew not their time if visitation” and if you believe the same thing your demise is the same.
Don’t you think that if Christ comes to earth again as a man to display a dynamic grand introduction arrayed in Royalty, that He would owe the Jews a huge apology? That it’s okay to expect that now? Is that the knife of saving from planet Earth you expect? Then you too, like the Jews, reject God’s Christ.¬†
Hebrews 10.29  Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?
