Sin, Law, Grace, Saviour, Gospel, Preacher and Church – MUST WATCH VIDEO

This little video says it all – anyone who thinks God made laws for yesterday and not for today would do well to watch this brief but excellent explanation of the reason for our faith!

While we’re at it, surely if there was no sin, there’d be no consequences of sin either? If that was true, then do we try to turn from sin? Because there are consequences of sin, and I know because I have experience of them. I praise God that in His mercy He forgave me for my sins and wiped my slate clean through His beloved Son when I REPENTED!

Have you sinned against God through disobeying His Law? Repent today, God loves you!

God Bless you

Why? Why isn’t there enough?

My question to God, when I don’t have enough is always ‘Why?’

I can ask for more, but if I don’t have enough it might be more profitable (in the spiritual sense, I mean), to ask ‘Why?’

Where am I with God? What might be blocking my progress with God, or where might I not be in obedience to God? If it’s ME, I WANT TO KNOW!

No, of course, it doesn’t always mean that it’s me, or you. No, sometimes it’s God’s sovereign nature, and He doesn’t want you getting comfy and thinking you can have your needs met just now. Maybe He wants you to be more adaptable, or more thrifty. Maybe He is telling you to sell that ‘fill in the blank’ and use the money.

Maybe He’s prompting you to change direction, and maybe He’s just preparing you for hard times ahead.

But if it’s ME – I WANT TO KNOW, and maybe you should ask that question too.

I can always do my best to learn to be a better believer if God shows me how. However, if I’m too comfy, maybe I won’t even try to be.

God Bless you

The loneliness of the long-distance runner – a metaphor for the Christian walk?

I was reminded of this book title the other day:

How often do we, as followers of God, feel alone on a long and difficult journey?

I think I feel that very keenly.

In my time as a Christian, I have met many wonderful people, some of whom are around still, and some of whom are only recently arrived, and all are such a blessing, but some of whom turned out to be cursed and brought all their difficulties into my life, marring what I was so desperate to keep clean for my own (newly-won) safety.

I was thinking the other day of friendships, and how we need to exercise some caution when opening our hearts, homes and lives to new people. This isn’t to sound paranoid, just that new friends don’t come with a card from the re-homing shelter saying ‘hates other dogs’ or anything else so helpful. They come in sometimes with secret bags of very dirty laundry which smells and you don’t realise until piece by piece they are washing that laundry in your friendship, creating waves of drama you didn’t expect. Sometimes it’s too much. Sometimes it’s simple, exhilarating, refreshing and wonderful. Sometimes you actually get to help, or at least support, but when do you stop if you can’t, and how do you extricate yourself from the bonds that get created during the ‘honeymoon’ of shared connections and shared dreams?

This is a question I haven’t yet got answers to. I do know that cursed individuals in your life can act like a foot in the door to everything you’ve been trying to keep closed and out – allowing in demonic activity in areas you thought you’d got fixed.

For me it’s always financial – I can tell when I have someone cursed in my circle of friends. My income will drop significantly, and stay down if I don’t act. This isn’t just about frienships either – I once got involved in a business I thought had great potential, and very quickly things began to go wrong. I noticed the drop in my income, and called the guy up. I told him frankly that I suspected he had a curse on him, and could I help?

He told me he believed that if he had the golden egg, that on the way to sell it he’d drop it and break it. If he had a golden egg the bottom of the market for golden eggs would drop out before he could sell it, making it worthless. This was his experience in life.

He told me that he’d been about to go into business with a man who died suddenly just before the paperwork was signed for their venture. His luck – if you want to call it that – was appalling.

I offered to help, and I never heard from him again.

My income went back up.

So how do we know, and how do we deal with other people’s curses? If you’re within a church, I hope that church is involved in deliverance ministry (unlikely in the UK), because then you have back up to help the person you know needs that help. Deliverance, however, without acknowledging the sins (and even the sins of the fathers) that brought it on is to fail to deal with it fully. If the curse is not dealt with, you have to find a way to break away from what is ultimately a fruitless relationship.

No-one wants to be that friend – the one who turns their back. No-one. We all want to rescue those we see in peril. We want to ensure they get saved, get clear, stay clear. But some people are under a strong delusion sent by God. Nothing you do will change that. If you stay and try to help, you will be harmed, and you may even risk God’s wrath.

Can anyone help me out here with some bible verses which talk about this issue? This isn’t an issue of being unequally yoked in many respects, some of these folks are church-going Christians – they just simply don’t recognise the need to deal with their past, often because they are under the impression that once you are saved/baptised/in the body of Christ, that somehow you are made clean. That is not from the mouth of Yeshua, who taught the LAW! The law tells you what sin is, and you must repent of that sin. That we have grace is true, but to say grace covers all sin without acknowledgement and repentence of that sin is naive and unscriptural.

So the journey we have, when we know this, can be quite lonely, and quite painful – leaving behind those who can’t be around us without harming our walk. I don’t think this is true for all Christians – I believe that some Christians are made of a special kind of stuff and can help the lost more effectively – but not in relationship with them, in counselling them. I know that I am quite easily influenced, and so I tend to stay away from those who want to mould me – whether they are a typical bad indfluence, offering booze and swearing, or whether they are Christians with a particular colour of doctrine which I don’t accept – there is always the desire to ‘fit in’ and please our friends! I have to remember to please God!

No conclusions here – no answers, just a painful moment of recognition that walking with God can be a lonely place.

God Bless you

Great interviews with Mary Lou Lake

Mary Lou Lake talks about mind control, witchcraft and what witches don’t want Christians to know (which is also the title of her book). This is a great interview.

If you enjoyed that and want to hear more I can highly recommend this other interview of hers as well – this one covers the pagan origin of Christmas as well as other themes explored previously.

God Bless you

The sins of the fathers – are they really visited on the children?

I recall talking to a lady at a Vineyard church who was having great problems at home. I recommended a book on intergenerational curses, because it had turned my life around. Another lady there stepped in and rejected the idea of intergenerational curses – yet I had experience of them. The first woman said there was freemasonry in the family – so that was the very same curse I knew I had experience of. I hope she took my advice and got the book – it was a serious boon to my life.

But many today in the church argue that Ezekiel chapter 18 rules that out, however these words and the words of Exodus – the ten commandments – they are not mutually exclusive – they fit the pattern of God’s statutes. Let’s take a look:

Ezekiel 18:19-21 says:

“19 Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live.

20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.”

But this does not change the commandement in Exodus 20:5-6:

“5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”

Why do I say that? Because God is the same today, yesterday and tomorrow – it is the righteousness which saves the man in Ezekiel from the punishment of their father’s sins. In Ezekiel 18:14 and 17

“14 Now, lo, if he beget a son, that seeth all his father’s sins which he hath done, and considereth, and doeth not such like, […]

17 That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed my judgments, hath walked in my statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live.”

Because he walks in His statutes – and therefore repents of sin, and also partakes of the Day of Atonement, and so by walking in God’s statutes he is aware of, and sees his father’s sin, and he will repent of it, and the potential curse it brings is removed.

That was what I needed to do to deal with my family’s sins – except that I did not know God’s statutes, and I did not see my father’s sin (in fact it wasn’t my father’s but his father’s), so I needed a written guide to help me recognise sin, because the bible doesn’t call out Freemasonry by name, and I was a very new Christian, and I needed some help with that. Once I had that, I prayed and repented of what I now recognised as sin, and that is what turned my life around.

If there is sin in your family, repent of it. If you are not sure what constitutes sin, I can recommend this book: Unbroken Curses by Rebecca Brown (Link). It was exactly what I needed at a very difficult time. From when I first got and read that book, life has moved forwards (even if meanderingly), and the set-backs I used to see on a regular basis have not happened.

God is good!

Have you ever wondered what happens in a Masonic Lodge?

This video, although old, and long, is really good. It shows the rituals involved in Freemasonry, so that you can see for yourself exactly why this is wrong in the eyes of God. In fact Freemasonry in a family is a curse which affects the subsequent generations. If you want to know more about how to resolve such intergenerational curses, please read Unbroken Curses by Rebecca Brown – it’s a very good book.

God Bless you
