Are our bodies a living sacrifice or a “fire offering” for God?
Ever deeply ponder these verses and study the OT law while believing that “God is one” and try to believe they are speaking of the same thing?
Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship Romans 12:1
“For everyone will be salted with fire. Mark 9:49
Here is what I hear powerfully from within today as I study Leviticus and it causes me to have great internal rest and trust of him no matter what occurs today in my outer man or what humans call “life”. God IS in total and complete control of every aspect of our lives and the end result. We will die. But it ends with a powerful and amazing surprise. LIFE. True life.
Please allow me to speak boldly and share what I am hearing and have been hearing so strongly from within. Here are the questions I ask the Lord and write what I hear as I study.Continue reading
I found the following question(s) were posted online in a Christian forum. This is a great question that I believe a LOT of people have and personally grapple with.
Will God destroy people on judgment day?
Revelation 13:8 – and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.
So what do you think of this passage?
Do you agree this passage is clear, unequivocal and self-evident to the reader: Certain individuals are preordained to be destroyed by fire on the day of judgment?
I think the person who asked the above question also has this verse in mind:
And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire Rev 20:15
Here is what I hear from within based on what I know of God’s goodness as revealed in his Word.
There is much more going on here than we see with our natural eyes and minds.
First, we must understand that God’s fire is a SPIRITUAL fire that is HOLY and not destructive in the way that natural fire is. This is why the “burning bush” was not consumed. God’s fire is refining and purifying removing ALL the impurities in us through trials and tribulations or “trials by fire”. This is our personal “tribulation” and all of us will be “salted” or purified by his holy, cleansing fire.
“For everyone will be salted with fire Mark 9:49
It’s only a matter of “When?” – this age (life of natural body) or the next?Continue reading
This week I find myself back into Revelation and I want to point out some things I am hearing within.
What is the Synagogue of Satan?
They may not be too popular, but I believe the Lord wants us to hear them so we can properly discern the truth. Ultimately, these words are very good news. But, we may have to first change our minds (repent) and agree with God’s very Word and die to ourselves. Once we die to the false self of the outer man, the very Word will feed us life and rivers of living water inside.
First, please know that God means exactly what he says and doesn’t play games with his Word. If he says something, he means it just as it is stated. If what we believe about him is contrary, we have to repent not God. We have to change our mind each and every time this happens. If we are not that flexible, we are in for more “hell” and in need of more “salting” with his Holy Fire. He will continue to “salt” and purify us until we agree 100% with his Word and this is the true repentance he grants us.Continue reading
Ever ask “What does the Bible say is true RIGHT NOW in this very present moment of space and time?”
This is very interesting to me. It is the idea and truth of where the Bible meets this exact PRESENT moment.
What is true right now according to the Bible?
That is what I am most fascinated about. I believe God is with us right now this very moment doing inside us whatever it is we are doing. The true God is in the everyday things doing them with us and AS us. Think about that today. It’s very powerful when it hits a person. It will even make you shed some tears as to how the creator of all things also helps you check the air in your tires or discipline your child.
So, is the Bible an antiquated book that is no longer very relevant to our modern times?
Or is it even more relevant today as we near the end of an age?
What does the Bible say about right now, at this very present moment. Surely there must be a Greek or Hebrew word meaning this very present moment where you are? For me, it is Friday October 31st 2014 at 9:10am and I am sitting at my computer in my home.
There is a word for “the very present moment”. Actually, more than one. So, are you curious like me and want to know what it is and where God’s Word INTERSECTS with us RIGHT NOW?
This is awesome and mind-blowing to think about what it reveals.Continue reading
In this article and intense study, we will answer the mystery question of “Who is Satan”? and also the question of “Who is the God of Israel in the Old Testament?”
Who is Satan? Is he the enemy of Jesus or his servant?
Could they be related? Let’s see.
Dear friend and lover of the truth.
I am going to share something that I have been sitting on for more than 6 months now. Today, I sense it is time to go public and “come out of the closet” with these powerful, yet shocking truths God has been revealing through his written and living Word only and not through any external teachings of man. I truly believe we really are in the very last days and are ready for the shocking truth that scripture reveals. I pray you are ready to stand in the TRUE faith when he appears and not shrink back.
If you have been brought up and believed all the common teachings of Christianity, (which I was) you may be GREATLY dismayed at what you begin to see as you carefully examine the scriptures yourselves instead of merely listening to other’s teachings and believing what they tell you. (Be sure to use a more literal translation like NASB or ESV and stay away from more less literal translations like NIV or the like. Biblegateway.com is a great site as is biblehub.com and blueletterbible.org.)
I know I was very shocked when I first saw the things I am going to share. I walked around in a stupor for a week or so. There was much FEAR the first few days, but after that, amazing peace settled in as the truth begins to set you free from within your heart. Fear is only in the outer man or the false self of the “flesh”. There is no fear in love and perfect love casts out fear. So, if you fear while reading this, simply stop and ask the Lord to drive the fear away. Then, go and do what he says. He will wait on you. He is VERY patient. If you have any fear, it won’t last and will be replaced by true inner peace who is Jesus himself.Continue reading
(Caution – this turns into a whole new topic after I started writing from the heart. I think some of the fire of God came down from Heaven against current false teachings of the “Christian religion”. My heart breaks as I want the common, everyday person to know the truth of the REAL gospel. The truth that is NOT being taught in the Church. If that statement offends you, then you don’t realize that if you speak 99.9999999999% grace (we still have “some” sin) and .0000000001 law (we need to do something about our remaining sin) then it is NOT The truth. It may be “some” truth, but not “The” or full truth. The real version that is 100% is powerful truth of REAL freedom that occurs INSIDE a person. Its the actual appearance of Christ himself inside who says “you are 100% free of ALL sin no matter what your external man says, thinks or does! Christ, The spirit of God ALONE is the truth. My friend, my heart breaks for you to experience this. This causes me to be very passionate both for you and at the same time AGAINST those who keep us in bondage to false religious teachings. Its hard to write to both audiences at the same time. I have great love for the people in the darkness, yet at times great wrath towards those who insist on keeping people under religious bondage. Could this be what Christ was going through dealing with both the “sinners and tax collectors” who knew they were broken, imperfect people and at the same time facing the self-righteous, religious Pharisee’s who kept them in religious bondage under law? My heart tells me “absolutely yes!”. He had to speak STRONG words of wrath against the Pharisee before some would repent and change their mind. Others were going to wait until the full fire came down from heaven against them before they would repent. That is what the law and religion does. It kills us. Christ alone sets us free!)
I woke up this morning hearing constant thoughts as if I were dreaming. Personally, I believe it is the Spirit talking to me. I have mentioned this times before to try to describe it. It’s as if you awake and others were up before you and having a discussion of which you find yourself in the middle of, listening.
What I remember now a couple hours later is “two will be in a field, one will be taken, one will be left” and “two will be grinding at the same place one will be taken one will be left”. Once I became more alert I spoke to the Lord and told him that I believed he was telling me about Mary and Elizabeth the mothers of Jesus and John.
See, since he has revealed to me that what the Bible is REALLY teaching is NOTHING at all what we have been taught, I see everything in a totally new way. It takes a whole new “wineskin” or way of thinking to see it. Only the Lord can give us that, but if you will ask him, I believe he will give to anyone who asks. See, it’s not the giving that is the problem. It’s the ASKING! We don’t ask because we are either too proud or we don’t have faith. However, as soon as he takes care of these two obstacles and we finally do ask, we WILL receive. It’s only a matter of when he gives it to you. The truth is that you already have it, but it has NOT been revealed to you. What you define as “you” is only a tiny FRACTION of who you really are and most of that is false. Our conscious daily existence now is only the TIP of the iceberg of who we REALLY are.Continue reading
Could God’s true plan to Heaven be the cross of death for all of us?
Good morning friends,
I am stumbling upon something mighty and amazing this morning after having a very quiet (spiritually speaking) 1-2 weeks. I have heard glimmers of this in the past and find it in my study notes, but this morning it is coming to me very strong as I study the genealogy of Abraham. As we do so, it is always a great idea to be asking God in our hearts “what are you REALLY telling us here”?
For example, we are taught in the Christian religion that Abraham was a man who God blessed and gave great favor to. Wherever and whatever Abraham did, it was successful. God told him that he would bless all families and nations through him. Also, through “his seed” would come one who would be the savior of the world.
These things are all true according to the Bible, but is God telling us more than appears on the surface? Was Abraham a mere man in a human body or is there MUCH more that God is revealing here about creation and our future? I believe so and when you see it, it is VERY exciting!Continue reading
Good morning beloved friends and brothers and sisters in Christ.
Let’s find the truth of Genesis
I pray this message finds you resting in the grace and peace of the Lord Jesus. This past week has been a week of testing and trials for me in my earthly work. I pray the Lord finds me resting at his feet but better yet, he is the one doing it in and through me. Our senses and bodily experience is so believable though, isn’t it?
Still, he always continues to reveal his amazing faithfulness no matter who difficult things get. It’s simply a process of waiting and trusting. Please pray that I will continue to hear his awesome voice of love and joy and be able to share it with others. It feeds me such life when I can do that.
Today, I hope to share as best the Lord allows, a visual representation of what is happening or has happened in Genesis 1:1 and 1:2. IMHO, Genesis 1:2 is one of the most powerful verses in the entire old Testament and the Bible itself. It reveals the state of creation BEFORE God even makes (remakes?) anything. I wrote about these verses in the post titled “The Earth was Formless and Void” and “Time Gap between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2?” Please check them out if you haven’t already as they give an interesting perspective and background.Continue reading
Good morning friends,
The past week or so have been quiet with the Lord and I have not been hearing his voice from within as strongly as before. I believe it’s because he knows I need to perform my earthly work in order to sustain my existence. If he continues to speak strongly, I will simply sit at his feet in awe and have no desire to perform earthly work. Thus, I have been able to get some things caught up outside of this blog and that is a good thing. Now, I am once again searching deeply for his voice.
In doing so, I thought it would be a good thing to attempt to visualize the creation of Earth and man from Genesis verse by verse. I believe in doing so, we can gain a deeper understanding of what God is really revealing to us from Genesis 1 to 3. What I see is much different than what we are often taught occurred. Sometimes, we have to go very deep and sit and wait on the Lord to reveal the true meaning of an original Hebrew word. This one word can change the course of ALL we believe at times.Continue reading
Is our “restart” coming soon?
My friend, I am being slayed in the spirit today as the Lord has revealed one POWERFUL thing after another!
I can’t begin to thank him enough at the natural strongholds he is breaking down in my natural human mind. Earlier last month and more powerfully this week he began to open my eyes to the 7 days of creation in Genesis. I have always been very intrigued as to where science meets God. My heart has always told me that God and truth fully reconcile with science, but science will never fully “find” or “discover” God. He has been confirming this greatly!
I am sure that I have written about these things before as once things start flowing, they don’t stop until I am worn out. This week the Lord has been speaking VERY powerful about the “Generations of Adam“, the “Generations of Noah” and the whole genealogy of Genesis. Ever wonder why Cain was “cast from the presence of the Lord” and his lineage is not included in the lineage of Christ? Ever wonder if this has anything to do with the “seed of the woman”, the “seed of the serpent” and the “wheat and the tares”? Now, I am convinced it does! I am finding that God gives us deep clues that start to unlock Genesis and Revelation!Continue reading
