Sharing the goodness and rightousness of GOD part one.

March 24, 2018 • Fred

In this post, I am just sharing how awesome our GOD is. I am not sure how many parts this will be however this is what I feel lead to talk about at the moment.

This is actually something talked about in the book of Psalms as doing with joy.  I can start by showing you how good GOD is from his word. Might as well start with Genesis. First of all, GOD gave Adam and Eve everything they needed. Including unhindered fellowship with him. Oh, what a wonderful place that would have been. Also, Adam was even allowed to name the animals instead of GOD just telling him what to call them, now that is pretty neat if you think about it (Genesis 2:19). After Man had sinned and lost all of that wonderful stuff GOD still showed love to him ( Genesis Chapter 3). He could have just destroyed the Man and started again. GOD also showed kindness by not allowing them to eat from the tree of life.  Now, this I might need to explain a bit. If GOD had allowed Adam and Eve to eat from the tree in the fallen state they would be in a pretty bad state. Something that some people want using technology, I mean people want to try and live forever in the fallen state. That does not at all sound like a good thing. Thankfully we have Jesus to undo the fallen state of Man and make us a new creation that is not in a fallen state. How wonderful is that?

Let’s keep going, now later when Cain sinned GOD still showed love or companion on him by putting a mark on him.  GOD didn’t have to put a mark on Cain or even tell Cain that he would be avenged for someone killing him. Like wow GOD is very good. Now I have to mention that people do and have taken advantage of this goodness of GOD even in this case. Lamech, later on, had done what Cain did and said he would be avenged 70 times 7 (Genesis chapter 4). Jude talks about people turning the grace of GOD into lasciviousness ( Jude 1:4), which is what a lot of people do and as I showed it happened in the past as well. Like people thinking grace is a license to sin.  It is not, in fact, if you love GOD you will not want to sin but to please him. Now we may not be able to do this perfectly and not on our own. We need GOD’s help. First of all, we need his help to know what pleases him and what does not. These are things he can teach us so I recommend reading his word and praying for him to teach you. Also, there are times when we face some pretty strong temptations and will need his help to overcome them. He even asks us to ask him or pray to him (Matthew 26:41) to be delivered from temptations. There have been many times in my life where I have had to turn to GOD in prayer to get help with some pretty strong temptations.  I mean really strong temptations. Temptations that I was not able to overcome on my own but with his help only. Also showing how wonderful our GOD is. He can and does help us in times of need.

A comment on facebook about sin

March 22, 2018 • Fred

There is much I do not know and am still learning. I can not forget what GOD showed me back in 2015 on how he viewed some things. In love, he showed me how disgusted he was with things like porn, transgender, homosexuality, and many others. Because of how he did that in love I can not separate his love from his wrath nor can I separate his love from his justice or his mercy. They are all one in the same. Yes, he hates evil and sin because all sin hurts someone. Some only hurt him such as transgender although that can hurt the person in that lifestyle as well. However, I must say that not all hurt is a sin. Someone can be hurt by being told the truth or being rebuked. This is, in fact, love not sin. Tolerance of sin is not loving as some think, it is actually hate to tolerate sin, telling someone they are doing wrong is hard and needs to be done in the manner that GOD wants it done. I also know we can not overcome sin on our own that does not mean however that we should keep on sinning. The only way to overcome sin is to allow GOD to work in you and allow his grace to help you overcome sin. We need his constant help in order to do this. We are typically inclined to not want to submit to him or do our own thing but that just hurts us. Basically, we are hurting our selves by fighting the will of GOD. We may also be hurting other people. Love is the key to everything and we get to submit to GOD in loving him not in torment fear of him, ” If you love me you will keep my commandment”. Yes, he will punish sin because of his love as I have said before.

Concerning Trump I know before the Election I was shown by GOD that Trump was going to be president but me being a fool listened to a pastor about who he wanted in office and went against GOD’s will in the matter. I have repented of listening to this pastor. I pray for that pastor, however. I know I know I should call no man pastor but I lack a better word.

I posted that on facebook as a reply to something a friend said she replied and said

Awesome truth spoken. Puts a smile on my face to see someone got it right!

I was just posting what GOD taught me so I thought I would also share it here.

What really counts in life?

March 20, 2018 • Fred

An easy answer is GOD and what we do for him. Sometimes all we need to do is wait on him because jumping in and doing something may not be what he wants. Sometimes even doing good may not be what GOD wants. Doing good may not be bad but it may cause more harm than good. A good example mentioned by a friend is if GOD tells you to give 20usd to someone and you give them 100. It may be good but the person only needed 20 and he may have just prayed for 20 and so getting 20 would have had more impact than 100. He would think his prayer was answered.

It is based to wait on the lord and do what he asks us to do sometimes he may not want us to do anything except waiting for him.

Anyway, this is a reply to a friends blog post and something another friend said. Here is the post by a friend.

What Really Counts in Life

Rewards from GOD

March 19, 2018 • Fred

This is something I want to share a little about again to lead you to a closer relationship with GOD. I know I mentioned there are 3 main points GOD asked me to share. This does have to do with one of those points maybe even more than one. At some point, I will be editing the about page to show those 3 points in more detail. Anyway, some of this will be preaching to my self, a lot of what I put on here is preaching to my self or something I have preached to my self to encourage my self. some will just be my own thoughts and experiences. This is something I feel GOD does want me to share. Please let me know if this is helpful to you or if I need to be more clear on something as I know I can be unclear at times. Thank you and here goes.

I have heard people say they do things for GOD just because they know they will get rewards in heaven and they say there is no other reason. Another reason that I can share with those that say that is doing things for GOD because you love him. Do you do things for a friend because you will be getting things from them or because you love them? GOD is much more than a friend, way more. He is our Lord, Master, our teacher, and our savior. I think it best reason to do things for him is that you love him. Yes, the bible does say we will get rewards from him. This is an added bonus and actually helps us to love him. He has already given us a lot as it is. So you could also do things for him as a thank you to him and to show him you love him. If you are reading this and are saved these are only a few of the things ( lack of a better word) GOD has given you, Everlasting Life, salvation, forgiveness of all sins, his own spirit (not a thing I was lacking a better word) to guide us and teach us and many other things as well. Also if you are not yet saved and saved here are things he has given you. Hmm not sure how to word this I will just quote a verse here.

James 1:17

King James Bible
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Another reason to love him is right there in that verse.

Be thankful for what you have.

Some might bring up this verse

Matthew 6:19-21 King James Version (KJV)

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

That verse is true we get to do that in loving him. Added bonus as I like to say as he has given us so much already. Ok, now I am repeating my self. GOD is good and this shows how good he is. He really does care about us.

Anyway, I want to get into something else I heard that has to do with doing things for GOD, not really rewards but I will bring it up here as it seems like a good place to bring it up. Some people do things for GOD to save themselves now this is a bad idea an takes away what Jesus did and may even be disrespectful of Jesus ( am aware that something this is the unforgivable sin, I don’t hold to that). There are those who also do things for Jesus to make up for wrongs they have done ( I think this is called penance by Catholics). This is almost the same as what I just mentioned. There are those who do things out of fear of GOD and that can be wrong depending on the type of fear. There is a fear that is connected with torment and there is a fear connected with Love. The one with torment is bad and the other is good. John Bunyan has a good book about this call the fear of GOD. I recommend checking it out he explains the differences really well. This book is available free. I have a link to a site that has all of his books in my links section.

Just thinking

March 14, 2018 • Fred

Some of this is in the history section, Anyway back in June of 2017, I was seeking GOD and his plan for my life. What came out of that is that there were 3 things I was to share with my friends and family and others. 1. The love of GOD in the bible. 2. showing respect to and for GOD. 3. That we can not save our selves and we are only saved through Jesus Christ.

It took me a while but I made 3 videos on youtube about all 3 and shared them. I then was thinking maybe I need to expand on them or maybe correct some misunderstandings in them.  Also because of some confusion about many many conflicting teachings that are out there, I opened this site up. The main focus is the truth which would be Jesus as he is the Truth the life and the way. I also wanted to point people to Jesus and GOD so they could have a better relationship with him. Then as you know the focus changed as I wrote about only a few days ago. I felt very confused and did a lot of praying so that I knew what GOD wanted me to do and what GOD wanted me to share on here. Now the 3 things mentioned back in June came up once again especially number 1 and mainly number 1. So there we go, I know what to do. Focus on the love of GOD. This will help people point to GOD and Jesus and will help them have a better relationship with him.  I don’t have to try and focus on all those conflicting teachings not here anyway. Those will be cleared up as I continue to seek truth and stay away from odd teachings.  If it is GOD’s will or desire I may share them on here.

New focus of site I think?

March 11, 2018 • Fred

A lot has happened in the past few days.  Where to start I guess I will start with something that happened a few days ago.  I was in a Christian chat and a topic came up and I tried to correct someone however they refused to accept correction. I was heartbroken by this. What I learned from this however is we cannot teach anything to anyone especially if they do not want to be taught. Even Jesus did keep trying to correct people and go after them. I am sure it breaks his heart when people walk away from him though.

Now let’s go to yesterday. I had a talk with a good Christian friend who knows a lot more then I do. One that is far closer to GOD then I am. It was a short conversation about one of the posts that were not helpful to him, that is fine. I know my goal is to find truth in the overwhelming amount of info out there.  Which only GOD can help me with. So far I have only tried to encourage people to have a relationship with GOD and Jesus without the fear of coming to him or the fear of the unforgivable sin. Which I know some people struggle a lot with. I mean the fear, not the sin. They fear they are not good enough they fear they sinned too much to be saved and so on an so forth. I want to encourage you to not stop seeking. If you are able to seek then that is a good thing. If you are wanting to come to Jesus then that is also a good thing. Not everyone struggles with this however so what should the focus of the site be? I know it also came up yesterday that the Holy Spirit should be the one to teach instead of men or women.  Does this mean I should not have the site at all? The idea came up. However, even though he is the only one we should allow teaching us that does not mean we do not need each other as Paul said here.

1 Corinthians 12:21
King James Bible
And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

So we do need each other to lift each other up and to encourage one another. Also to help us stay focused on Jesus and not our selves. So I guess that maybe the future focus of the site, I think.  At least encouraging others by seeking the truth and the truth will set you free. I know I am going to need GOD’s help as I do feel it was his desire for me to do this. Also, I know that GOD to teach others through me if he wanted to as he can do with others.

Also, there was something else mentioned by that friend and another friend. That is that we need to try not to analyze GOD or his word. I find it interesting that 2 people almost back to back said that same thing to me and neither of them knows each other. I guess I may be guilty of this and yet I know GOD is far greater than we are and we can not know everything about him. To know everything about him would make us greater and we are not.

Never give up seeking GOD. He is so GOOD that he is well worth having a relationship with. He is the creator of heaven and earth and he desires to free us from sin and death and have a relationship with us.

Getting Taught by GOD

March 10, 2018 • Fred

A friend of mine posted a new blog entry on his blog.  I wanted to comment on it on my own blog.

Do We Seek Christ as Our Teacher?

That reminds me of what is at the beginning of one of my bibles.

A note in the beginning of the bible. This is a restored Names translation of the bible.

A note at the beginning of the bible. This is a restored Names translation of the bible.

I know a lot of us including my self, seek answers to our questions and do not always go to GOD for the answers. This has gotten me into some trouble as I have many many conflicting teachings in my head. I guess sorting those out is part of the reason for this site. It is very important to seek GOD for answers. I know it may be a challenge to know if you are hearing from GOD or not. GOD will never go against what he has said in his word and also do not forget that he is love. Also, we can not understand his word without him showing us what it means. I know some will say this creates a circle of sorts. Just do not give up seeking GOD and his truth.

I don’t want anyone to just accept what I say as I might be wrong please Go to GOD to see if I am right or wrong. I know I try to only post what I feel is right but I still could be wrong. As it is written, test every spirit and see if it is of GOD or not. I encourage you to go to GOD with everything.

The unforgivable sin

March 10, 2018 • Fred

This sin has been talked about a lot. My desire here is to show you what GOD has shown me about this sin. I watched a video not long ago about this sin and for the most part, I agree with her. I think only some minor things I do not agree with which I will not get into at the moment as I want to focus on this sin and what GOD has shown me and I would rather not get into things that are more then likely my opinion on things, basically things I am not sure if I am right or wrong on, I would rather stay away from things I am not sure about.

Anyway, lets get into what I was shown. First, there are 3 or 4 requirements to actually committing the sin and not be forgiven. These are in no specific order, however, I know all would have to be met in order for someone to commit this sin. We will start with the one mentioned in Hebrews 6 verse 6:

Hebrews 6:6 King James Version (KJV)
If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

The last part “put him to an open shame”, the word open is important here.  Meaning this sin is done openly in front of 2 or more witnesses.

The next one is also mention in Hebrews:

Hebrews 10:26 King James Version (KJV)
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

wilfully sinning is the part we want to look at there. Basically doing this sin intentionally. So with this and the other one together we have someone doing this sin intentionally in front of 2 or more witnesses. Also, note that this verse in Hebrews is in fact just about the unforgivable sin, not all sin. Although yes we should not sin but not out of fear but out of love for Jesus and his Father and his Spirit. Also, I want to mention here that people have unintentionally put Jesus to an open shame and still have been forgiven. That is why both would need to be required.  We still want to be careful and not put Jesus to an open shame with our actions especially if we want to lead others to Jesus to get them saved. Not that we can do this on our own. We need the help of the Holy Spirit and the grace he gives us.

Next is what I called the Esau requirement again mention in Hebrew and Genesis

Hebrews 12:16 King James Version (KJV)

16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.

If you remember from the book of Genesis Esau despised his birthright. How this relates to the unforgivable sin is the birthright, in this case, would be Salvation itself. So if you love your salvation or don’t want to lose it or give it up this would actually be a good thing and you would not meet this requirement.

The last requirement which can sometimes be one in the same requirement as the Esau requirement which is why I say 3 or 4.  The last one is having a hard heart toward GOD. So if you have any love toward GOD you would not meet this requirement. Also if you are wanting a relationship with him and honestly seeking him you have not met this requirement.

Something else that was shown to me is why there is such a sin if GOD wants everyone to be saved.

2 Peter 3:9 King James Version (KJV)

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

In that verse to me, it seems clear that GOD wants everyone to come to repentance and be saved. So it confused me as to why GOD would make a sin that could not be forgiven if he wants everyone to be saved. So I asked the question to him. Hard to explain the answer however basically the answer is in the question. As the question is why is there an unforgivable sin if he wants everyone to be saved.  Anyway, that is the whole point he does want everyone to be saved so it grieves him when someone refuses to be saved when he made an easy and the only way to be saved which is through Jesus Christ. There is no other way to be saved. In other words, it is because of his love that such a sin exists. Think of it this way it is like someone showing love toward another person yet that person refusing to accept that love. Now I am not talking about stalkers, GOD is not a stalker and will let you go if you refuse to accept his love. He will not force his love on you. That does not mean he is any less upset and angry with you. A good book in the bible to see an example of this is in the book of Hosea.

He loved the world so much that he sent his son to die for us.  You can see how upset GOD gets in the old testament when someone is wanting to go back to Egypt and murmurs against GOD. He is showing them such love and yet they want to go back to Egypt. Just think of how you would feel about that. He does not force his love on anyone but he does love everyone.  I don’t see this as much different from the Unforgivable sin, in fact, I see what the Israelites did as the same as what is mentioned in the new testament. Now remember the requirements above as I know people get upset at GOD and that is not the unforgivable sin. People do an have gotten upset at GOD and still been able to repent and be forgiven.

Now in light of everything that I have said above we come to what the unforgivable sin is. Although maybe you have figured it out. There has been much debate about what the sin is. Keep in mind the requirements as well as the fact that GOD wants everyone to come to repentance because he is love.

You must also be aware that the awesome spirit of GOD bears witness to Jesus. So, in other words, he is bringing us to Jesus to be saved as Jesus is the only way to be saved. We can not save our selves. When Jesus did his work the works were done in the power of the Holy Spirit, also making the Holy Spirit one who was a witness to Jesus. John the Baptist was another witness mentioned by Jesus. There you go 2 witnesses and there were more than just those 2.

I am aware of the literal view of the unforgivable sin. The literal view is giving satan credit for something GOD did. Which is in the context of the verses that talk about the unforgivable sin however not the overall context of the whole bible and it leaves out that GOD is love. Also, this can be done by accident and not on purpose which you see accounts of in the bible. Even though I do not believe this is the sin I do still think it is best not to do this. I know at one time with this view it bothered me a lot because it seemed difficult if not impossible not to commit. Especially when trying to find if someone is of GOD or not or trying to find if someone is a false prophet or not. I got so scared at one time I just accepted everyone who was teaching about the Bible and refused to call anyone a false prophet. I still actually refuse to do this as I honestly do not know if someone is or not. However, I do not accept everything said by everyone that is trying to teach the word of GOD because not everyone can be correct as there are too many teachings that are in conflict with one another. I know that many of these have said GOD told me or GOD showed me. I guess even I do that. I accept that I could be wrong and so could they be wrong.

Another view is hard to explain however it is one that T. Austin Sparks teaches. I may have a bit of trouble wording this one as it is similar to what I have been shown. This view is when someone is so self-righteous that they think they have saved themselves and think will go to heaven based on what they have done. This view is very prideful and based on pride. I think T Austin Sparks actually says ” someone who says they do not need Jesus”.  I personally need Jesus every second of every day, I think everyone does especially if you want to go to heaven. I want to repeat I need Jesus / Yeshua every day!!  John Bunyan had a similar view of this sin. Although probably not the exact same considering his view on John 6:37.

Another view is someone who breaks the third commandment, I only know of a few people who teach this one and it is a new view for me as I only came across this less than a year ago. This view is the same as what Job’s wife told Job to do so you have to understand the 3rd commandment in that way. Here is what Job’s wife Told job to do.

King James Version Job 2:9
9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

I do not recommend doing that view as you are not showing much love toward GOD. Although I do not believe that is the sin. It may fit with a few of the requirements though so don’t do what Job’s wife told Job to do.  Hmm in typing and going through and correcting things I may have known about this view before as I am reminded that after reading the book of Job a few times and even watching videos about Job that I got a bit scared to ever use them and I guess I am still scared to say it but it is the c word that means the opposite of blessing.

Another view is to allow someone to rule over you instead of Jesus. This is a bad thing, however, I do not think it is this sin. I have seen people forgiven for this.

There are other views at the moment as this is getting long I think I will say what I have been shown and is my view which is similar to what T. Austin Sparks and John Bunyan taught and that is to basically not get saved or to not accept salvation or to despise salvation. Also, the sin is to have a lot of Hate toward GOD and no love toward him at all. This fits with the fact that GOD is love. GOD wants to save every one and when someone refuses to get saved or has hate toward GOD specially after he has shown you many many times his loving intents toward you through works and signs and wonders ( signs and wonders like these are done through the power of the holy spirit)  just like we see with Jesus and even in the old testament when the people Murmured against him. Also, keep in mind that the Holy Spirit leads people to Jesus and the signs and wonders are done in his power hence the reason the sin is called Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.  I am very much aware that someone can feel unworthy of salvation and this is not the sin and is probably the opposite of this sin, to be honest.

Also, I should mention what blasphemy says in the strong’s “to vilify; especially, to speak impiously : (speak), defame, rail on, revile, speak evil of. ”

Well, that right there would say the sin would have to be spoken openly and intentionally so in fact summarizes all the requirements in one word.  How interesting is that?

My apologies for rambling on and on and even repeating my self. I may have to shorten this a bit, however, I wanted to make this as clear as possible.

Seek him while he may be found

March 9, 2018 • Fred

I did a search for all the verses I could find that had seeking and finding GOD. My goal is to encourage you to seek and find him. It is important to seek him in this life. It is important to have a relationship with GOD and Jesus. As I have said before do not be afraid to seek him or come to him. Also do not give up ever. Things may be hard however GOD is there to help us and we really need his help. As I have said we need him 24/7. His grace helps us overcome temptation and anything else we may need to overcome.

Jeremiah 29:13 | KJV
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

1 Chronicles 16:11 | KJV Seek the Lord and his strength,
seek his face continually.

The following verse is one I was looking for when making a video I posted on youtube. I could not find it at the time.

The Lord is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.
2 Chronicles 15:2b | KJV

O God, thou art my God;
early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee
in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is.

Seek the Lord, and his strength:
seek his face evermore.
Psalm 105:4 | KJV

I sought the Lord, and he heard me,
and delivered me from all my fears.
Psalm 34:4 | KJV

This following one reminds me of another verse that I made a post about John 6:37

And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
Psalm 9:10 | KJV

Blessed are they that keep his testimonies,
and that seek him with the whole heart.
Psalm 119:2 | KJV

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Luke 19:10 | KJV

In the following verse, this want actually means lack

The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger:
but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
Psalm 34:10 | KJV

Seek good, and not evil,
that ye may live:
and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you,
as ye have spoken.
Amos 5:14 | KJV

For thus saith the Lord unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live.
Amos 5:4 | KJV

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Ephesians 6:10 | KJV

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found,
call ye upon him while he is near.
Isaiah 55:6 | KJV

And I will walk at liberty:
for I seek thy precepts.
Psalm 119:45 | KJV

I am sought of them that asked not for me;
I am found of them that sought me not:
I said, Behold me, behold me,
unto a nation that was not called by my name.
Isaiah 65:1 | KJV

So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul:
when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward,
and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
Proverbs 24:14 | KJV

GOD is very kind

March 5, 2018 • Fred

GOD is Kind

IMage taken from Nap time Chat

Have you ever noticed how loving and kind GOD is toward us. I know many of us including my self have trouble doing what he tells us. A lot of times we think we know a better way. How ever later when we do it our way we realize doing it his way would have been better, much better in some cases. Listening to GOD is a good thing because he does care about us and does love us. I know at times it can be hard to tell if he is telling us to do something or not. I guess the best way to know is to realize GOD is love and he will not go against his word. He does not change, he is the same yesterday today and tomorrow. GOD is well worth loving.
