“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)
“Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. (Isaiah 28:9)
Teaching about Anger
“You have heard that people were told in the past, ‘Do not commit murder; anyone who does will be brought to trial.’ But now I tell you: if you are angry with your brother you will be brought to trial, if you call your brother ‘You good-for-nothing!’ you will be brought before the Council, and if you call your brother a worthless fool you will be in danger of going to the fire of hell. So if you are about to offer your gift to God at the altar and there you remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar, go at once and make peace with your brother, and then come back and offer your gift to God. (Matthew 5:21-24)-(GNT)
I have had just uncountable brothers and sisters through years past and to this day I that I have felt are good for nothing spiritually speaking – but look at what the words of our Lord speak. . .
“God looks down from heaven
on the children of man
to see if there are any who understand,
who seek after God.
They have all fallen away;
together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even one. (Psalms 52:2-3)-(ESV)
However to hate, detest, scorn and persecute brothers or sisters as all have done to me for years in the eyes of God is nothing but murder.
“We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. Whoever does not love abides in death. Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. (1 John 3:14-15)
But how can we love a fellow believers if they are disobedient and unworthy as God sees most all on this planet?
“Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. (Luke 23:34a)
Now in our heart by the laws of God based on love we have forgiven just as I have forgiven a world of brothers and sister who not only refuse my wife and I very simple helps being the lowest as just food to eat sent in a box, but on top only hate with scorn, slander and judgment while even listening to their false teachers words being pure murder – and they all do the same because they know not what they do including not even knowing God according to His own words.
God Is Love
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 John 4:7-8)
So now what can we do? We want need and love our Lord and Father; and also want to please Him.
So Jesus said to them, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own authority, but speak just as the Father taught me. And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him. (John 8:28-29)
When we look only to our Father as Christ our Head, we can only do it through written words we are all to live by.
These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. (Proverbs 6:16-19)
“In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among falsebrethren; (2 Corinthians 2:11-26)
“And that because of falsebrethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: (Galatians 2:4)
This entire world is filled to the brim with false teachers and false brethren who will automatically turn all of Christ’s words around in saying the author is or the devil and speaking of himself -- while themselves being without love, compassion or obedience through the fruits of the spirit required to even know the Father; therefore all is up to only you as an individual to see exactly as God sees you according to His own words in Revelation 12:9 and Psalms 14:2-3 while looking into the mirror to see if you are following our Lord your only Head or your own human spirit which is psychologically controlled by the god of this world. . .
“In the past you were spiritually dead because of your disobedience and sins. At that time you followed the world's evil way; you obeyed the ruler of the spiritual powers in space, the spirit who now controls the people who disobey God.(Ephesians 2:1-2)
So now what? Here we have a totally misled and deceived world civilization with billions who believe in God, yet a world of division filled with nothing but man-made religions, beliefs, doctrines and traditions that who believe in being Christ as the only Son of the Father had neither part of nor anything to do with regarding all of their unwritten ways worldwide with uncountable false holidays and false days of worship included.
This is what our Lord directs. . .
It is the spiritual, not the material, attitude which matters
In view of these tremendous facts, don’t let anyone worry you by criticising what you eat or drink, or what holy days you ought to observe, or bothering you over new moons or sabbaths. All these things have at most only a symbolical value: the solid fact is Christ. Nor let any man cheat you of your joy in Christ by persuading you to make yourselves “humble” and fall down and worship angels. Such a man, inflated by an unspiritual imagination, is pushing his way into matters he knows nothing about, and in his cleverness forgetting his head. It is from the head alone that the body, by natural channels, is nourished and built up and grows according to God’s laws of growth.
So if, through your faith in Christ, you are dead to the principles of this world’s life, why, as if you were still part and parcel of this world-wide system, do you take the slightest notice of these purely human prohibitions—“Don’t touch this,” “Don’t taste that” and “Don’t handle the other”? “This”, “that” and “the other” will all pass away after use! I know that these regulations look wise with their self-inspired efforts at worship, their policy of self-humbling, and their studied neglect of the body. But in actual practice they do honour, not to God, but to man’s own pride. (Colossians 2:18-23)-(Phillips)
The whole point of the subject matter is our Lord Jesus Christ; therefore if it’s His written instruction – Obey – if not Stay Away with no association.
How can we know all things?
Final advice and farewell
“Never damp the fire of the Spirit, and never despise what is spoken in the name of the Lord. By all means use your judgement, and hold on to whatever is really good, Steer clear of evil in any form.(1 Thessalonians 5:19-22-(Phillips)
So what’s the bottom line?
“Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. (Philippians 3:17-21)-(ESV)
“But I devoted myself to knowledge and study; I was determined to find wisdom and the answers to my questions, and to learn how wicked and foolish stupidity is. (Ecclesiastes 7:25)
“So then, where does that leave the wise? or the scholars? or the skillful debaters of this world? God has shown that this world's wisdom is foolishness! (1 Corinthians 1:20)
In this particular site and many others I have never gained even one genuine friend, brother or sister beyond some false words of kindness ending at their tongue. My wife and I are totally without many basic needs, and being we own the property we live on and our home, the needs we have compared to many are very small.
In today’s websites such as facebook, several years of a person’s timeline can truly show who that individual is; and when added is their eleven free websites, a published book and how they have been dying to self for years only to become a worthy living sacrifice for God’s use in these end times, just where is the commanded love in this world of believers when they are so full of hate, scorn, judgment, dislike and just very hateful words against me?
Long ago churinga as the moderator in I am Christian website called and labeled me as being an author of the devil with never a kind word ever since, and that’s brotherly love?
Because my only life is God while even being in hunger, stressed and always living the battles between flesh and spirit just as Paul in Romans 7:14-25, my only direction is God’s will in spreading truth to all for these end times with these following words just being the start of great sadness coming all must clearly see while becoming spiritually prepared to stand strong just a Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego who were cast into the fiery furnace while never denying God. . .
“And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. (Matthew 24:4-8)
Therefore I have stressed these following words from our Lord many times to a world of believers who refuse to hear in spirit and truth because they lack compassion. . .
“Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor
will himself call out and not be answered. (Proverbs 21:13)
When I write words about giving -- http://ttimesofttrouble.webs.com/howtogaingodsmercy.htm -- it’s to show the compassion of my heart for others when God makes a way for me to do so, and it’s only to show what God seeks in all believers because when lacking Christ’s commanded love, the days of their own famine will come upon them all being totally unprepared, so when crying out for help, there will be none from any individual or even God; and it’s because God will only give in the same way believers gave to others, yet a false teacher of this world leading all into the pits of suffering could only speak placing me as written. . .
“So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. (Matthew 6:2)
I only seek the Fathers will and direction in spreading truth with examples all must follow in order to please God, but when un-loving brethren worldwide can do no more than fulfil the words of our Lord in bringing great blessings upon me, I am very thankful. . .
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons[a] of God.
“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.(Matthew 5:3-12)
The needs of my wife and I are so small, yet with the past six years in seeking God as silver and hid treasure while caring about all humanity because I can so clearly see the coming storms, I can’t even get a simple box with some canned goods, Kraft dinners, cereal, instant milk and pancake mix; and its been many years of effort – yet just as the three men in Daniel 3, I will always choose the furnace of suffering before ever losing my faith towards God Almighty.
Lara, with great humility I very genuinely appreciate your comment more than words can speak; and that is because in truth, being a workman for God with no other life is a very lonely life while also fighting many circumstances with no true brothers or sisters as others parts of Christ body being willing to help in just small ways -- but rather just being as Christ own words describe in John 15:18-21 which have given me a life just as Ezekiel in Chapter 2 and 3 of his book. Because of your kind words which I do need, what you speak makes you one of the few in 1 Corinthians 2:13 rather than the many of this world who regard all I speak as foolishness in 1 Corinthians 2:14.
May our Lord be your director and greatly bless you.
