Are You Ashamed Of Jesus? The Truth Might Surprise You!

Romans 1:16 states emphatically that a true Christian is NOT to be ashamed of the power of God revealed in our lives. But…..really how many of us actually live conscious of that fact? I’d bet good money that we don’t even think about the fact we live like we are ashamed every day, not willingly so much as selectively. We avoid situations that place us in the way of telling others about our savior before we actually get into them thus telling ourselves it wasn’t God’s will to speak to them. We justify simple moves to avoid the bigger issue of  spreading the Gospel of power.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

The power of God is ONLY REVEALED THROUGH US WHEN WE SPEAK ABOUT JESUS AND HIS GOSPEL. Not only that but the righteousness we THINK we have in Christ is directly tied to the preaching of that same Gospel releasing freedom into our lives, so if we become ashamed of that power in ANY WAY we by extension deny God’s power.

Romans 1:17  For therein (In the power of God) is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. “

Now…think about this very carefully, BOTH the righteousness and the power of the Gospel to save us from sin, are tied to NOT BEING ASHAMED of it. Doesn’t that indicate clearly that the majority of so-called salvation’s are hinging upon a proper understanding of this concept?

Romans 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;…”

 What is “Holding the Truth” in an unrighteous way? Could it possibly mean THINK YOURSELF to be saved while AT THE SAME TIME BEING ashamed of the Gospel. The two are oxymoron’s, one cannot be saved and ashamed according to scripture, they are mutually exclusive. Could this be the reason most religious people are deceived? Could it be the reason religions create false premises concerning salvation’s rules to cover for this obvious infraction against God?

The just shall live by faith and in order to live by faith,…God’s version of faith in Hebrews 11:1 you must not be ashamed of Gospel because it counter acts what true faith is! True faith cannot be revealed as the overcoming power it is, if you are constantly countering it’s power in you through your personal embarrassment of what it represents. Religious people only believe what their church tells them to believe, they are in effect trained to understand only a limited experience. Their faith is NOT BIBLICAL and thus not able to overcome the world system around them, which is why man-made religions cannot save us!

 Hebrews 11:1    “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

True biblical faith CONTAINS certain ingredients that average everyday faith does not, it has substance and evidence contained within it ready to be released through our lives as we believe, that produces everything religion cannot but being ashamed countermands it’s effect. This is called being double minded in scripture.

James 4:8  
 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
and purify your hearts, ye double minded. “

We can CURE our double mindedness by simply getting as close to God as we can, and as far from man-made ideas as possible. We then create an atmosphere where pure biblical faith can grow, sprout and reproduce itself in our lives. This is the true Christian faith in action not the fake religious version we all go to church and see. True Christianity is nothing like we see today, of course some things are but that is how we become deceived, we think we are serving God but all the while we are simply serving our own selfish needs, masking them over with religious duties.

Religion is the single most reliable source of Atheism in the world, why? Because it is a never ending well of excuses why God cannot be real. Religion gives lip service to everything real making it powerless before the world. Religion takes everything the bible says and diminishes it’s viable power through traditions created in the minds of mere men, totally powerless traditions!

Who can look at scriptures presentation of the power of God and think for even a second that Christianity as we witness before us is scriptural? What kind of deception is at work to make us excuse our weak kneed version of faith as the real faith of our fathers? How can we read of Jesus’ life in the Gospels, his healing of the sick, casting out of dark spirits, his renewing of the insane minds around him and think…..”Yeah…that’s the kind of power my religion emits around me!”

James 5:19-20  

 “Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death,
and shall hide a multitude of sins.” 

Man’s religion is our greatest err from the truth we could have ever committed against God, we have settled for demonic counterfeits rather than biblical truth. We have replaced his power for a powerless pile of dogmas. Do we really think God could be pleased with our lack of power?

 John 4:13-14


“Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this
water (The water of normal mortal life.) shall thirst again: 

 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I

shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be
in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”

Eternal life means just that, it is life that is SELF-REPLICATING, UNABLE TO DIE not simply unwilling to as the natural life of man is. This water from the well of God himself cannot be overcome, cannot be polluted by the world’s ways, cannot be what religion wants it to become…..weak and unobtrusive into the affairs of men!

God has provided us with a power so great that it’s painful to watch how the church has thrown away that power to BLEND IN WITH THE WORLD it’s supposed to be saving from it’s sin. Do we really believe that God will put up with us as mere shadows of what we are supposed to be?

John 6:53-58

 “Then
“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life
in you.  Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal
life; and I will raise him up at the last day.   For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 
 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my
blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
 As the living Father hath sent me, and I

live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.  This is
that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and
are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.”

The Church’s power did not end in the forth century it was merely put to sleep by religious unbelief and only awakened periodically over the centuries in revivals that God caused to awaken his bride to be. But for us to believe we are his church we must believe his word to us, his true description of his body. That and that alone is our reflection not the weak religions ideas of what the church is! Human beings have a bad habit of accepting the easiest solution to a problem instead of digging for truth as 04-05-14 - 1God requires of us!

Think about it, would the God of creation really give up all he had to give up just to produce a powerless religion that believes in nothing and accomplishes nothing of import? Would Jesus really want what we know of as the Christian religion to take over the world? Come on people wake up, religion is the poorest excuse for faith and belief that has ever been invented. For heaven’s sake, it’s created more unbelief that all the Atheists combined over the century’s so why do we think for a moment that God is even in our worthless religions?

If we do not obey to the letter what Jesus commands we are not true believers, the truth cannot set you free if your view of it is warped from what it truly is. Truth is not really truth if all it is, is your personal opinion and not God’s word. The Bible is not a book of suggestions it’s a directional instruction for living life as God requires and e do not get a choice on that! Being ashamed of God is not a hard thing to do, it shows itself at every disobedience, every time your opinion trumps God’s direction, every little fear or pandering to the world’s ways creeps in……you are ASHAMED AND YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED of being ashamed because he gave more than any human being on this planet, past, present and future.

PART 2 of FEAR : The Food of those who would be gods, The BAIN of those who would serve God!

I believe Blogging should be informative, then entertaining. To talk without real meaning does no one any good,”Give a man a fish and you fill his stomach for a day but teach a man to fish and HE can fill his stomach with food every day.”
How we think of Bears…….
How BEARS think of them selves!

Let’s tell a story for a moment shall we? 
Let’s imagine for a moment that a young boy who lives in the Wilderness with his family in the early 1800’s, one day ventures out into the woods to explore and comes across a lonely Grisly bear cub along side his dead parents. Feeling empathy for the very young cub he takes the cub  to care for him never letting his parents know he has the cub.
Let’s say he keeps the cub in a little storage shed about a mile or so from his families home in the woods, feeding him table scraps and giving him left over milk from his breakfast. The two grow up together becoming friends, the bear thinking that the boy is one of his parents {Food Sources}. As the cub grows up its internal instincts begin to take over and he becomes harder and harder to control and the young boy doesn’t know how to control him so he puts him in a cage he builds from scrap wood around the shed. This however doesn’t sit well with the now older bear and he breaks out to find food, since he was feed human food and never taught to hunt on his own, he seeks out humans to feed him.

In his search he comes upon the boy’s house a mile or so uphill, the parents unaware of their son’s misdeed done in empathy for a lonely cub months ago are unprepared to defend themselves from the fury of the young Bears appetite. They do not know he only wants scraps, and begin to scare him away like they would any wild animal. The Bear is so confused by these mixed signals from what he has grown to love as FOOD SOURCES in his life THAT HE DOES WHAT ANY BEAR WOULD DO, HE ATTACKS THEM AND KILLS THEM. They become his food source literally and the Bear becomes a man killer ALL BECAUSE OF A LITTLE BOY WANTS A TO CARE FOR ONE OF NATURES CREATURES WITHOUT FULL KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO DO IT.

WHAT DID THE BOY IN THIS STORY LACK THAT WOULD HAVE HELPED HIM MAKE A BETTER CHOICE?
Its simple, “Fear of the bear” he thought that because he cared for the bear and provided love from his heart that the Bear would always be tame. That was his mistake, BEARS are wild BY NATURE within and cannot be tamed permanently. No matter what WE THINK about the Bear’s nature, its nature will take care of itself.

In a SIMILAR way our THOUGHTS ABOUT GOD can equally be wrong and misdirect our perceptions concerning Who he is, How he operates in the world and Why he does what he does. If our perceptions are deceived concerning God we LACK THAT SAME FEAR that the boy lacked concerning the Bear.
Religion gives a false view of God!
How do we KNOW about God? 

Where do you gain knowledge that could even come close to describing a God that is BOTH the greatest love and the most pure and equal Judgment rolled into one?

Can any mortal finite mind ever think of God rightly without failing to embrace both sides of his nature? Its not within our abilities as mortal’s to think of something beyond ourselves that has NONE of the weaknesses and perfection no human being has. In all the history of the “gods” of men, their imaginations about a higher power could not move beyond their own limited perceptions of power, greed, lust, and money.
The answer is BOTH simple and hard to understand at the same time, hard because we do not have the proper understanding through man made Religion. Easy because God made us in his Image to begin with. With HIS POWER he can rewire us to understand his love and his judgment. 

To Fear God is not to “BE AFRAID” of God’s Love but to have a balanced Reverence, awe and understanding that God can take this world out as fast as he put it here, of what would happen if we disobey that love. God has CLEARLY revealed the rules to obtain life, clearly shown the way, the truth, and the life in his word. God CANNOT be understood aside from his word and not properly understood without spiritual life within us.

Two Equal and Opposite Errors About Two very Unequal Characters!

“There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race
  
(Human Beings) can fall about the devils. One is to DISBELIEVE in their existence.
The other is to BELIEVE, and to FEEL AN UNHEALTHY INTEREST in them.”
C.S. Lewis

What is the Occult?

The word itself comes from the Latin word “Occultus” meaning “Things Hidden” which involves a pursuit of the secret and mysterious.
Websters Dictionary defines “Occult” as BOTH a verb and a noun at the same time, As a Noun it means something not revealed: it is secret and is not able to be seen or detected, not manifest or detectable by clinical methods alone.
It is also a Verb meaning to Conceal or to deceive, to hide from sight.
I believe that 8 out of ten times the Occultist is reading the person not the Taro cards or tea leaves, they have become masters of body Language and facial expressions.
They also for the most part can do their homework concerning YOU before or even while your being detracted by the show so not every Medium or Witch is a true believer in the Darkness or the so-called Light they say tells them information.
They might just be good at using technology, Like hidden microphones with someone in another room with “Google search” looking up your very revealed past on a computer and telling them as they push for info.
Some go through your trash or e-mails to learn emotional info about you.
Some people are easily led, while others are more not so easily deceived but the real deal is RARE at best, though it can exist!
There are real Witches, Wizards and Mediums, those who are nothing like the Hollywood type cast or the bogyman we made them out to be, Witch Hunting never ends well and never finds the one it appears to be hunting!
I Peter 5:8
Plainly tells us “Be self controlled and ALERT. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour”
Why a Lion and not a Lioness?
Because the forces of Darkness CANNOT know what your thinking or what you intend to do so LIKE the Lion who doesn’t hunt for himself but relies on the female to find food for him, Satan can only make noises (Circumstances) to scare you into the fear he needs as his food (Building Materials) to propagate the darkness of binding your life.
Fear is Satan’s home turf, without that fear there can be no deception, it cannot hold you back, down or unclear in life if you DO NOT FEAR it, so it is your fear of the unknown that deceives your reason concerning the Occult.
The Opposite of Fear is true Knowledge of the Occult NOT THE FALSE information they give you to bend your reason to their will, the Bible shines a true light on the practices of the Occult, once you know the truth the lie looses its roots in you and fear cannot reproduce and compound itself!
John 10:10
reveals the whole purpose of Satan in the lives of Men and Women on earth, his THREE STEP PLAN.
“The THIEF comes ONLY to steal and Kill and Destroy; I (Jesus) have come that YOU may have LIFE and to HAVE IT TO THE FULL.
As can be seen there is a distinct difference between the Jesus of Scripture and the Satan personality of Scripture, There is NO such thing as an EQUAL power struggle between Good and Evil. God has COMPLETE CONTROL over every aspect of Creation, he and only he can control the IMBALANCE caused by Sin in the Universe, an imbalance HE DID NOT CREATE!
There are many people who do not believe ANYTHING that is considered Occultism is real and while there are clearly the FAKE among them as there are among the Church at large NOT everything is fake just because some of it is and if we deem things that way it makes the real issues more hidden and we find ourselves being accomplices to Satan’s cover-ups!

The Nine Satanic Statements reveal the true nature of Satan to the world once you look under the hood and proves that Satan is NOTHING like the God of the Bible!

Comments in Red.

1. Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence!
(There is NO wisdom in full out indulgence while abstinence leaves you room to really think about what you are going to do!)
2. Satan represents vital existence instead of spiritual pipe dreams!
(Here Satan is said to be attached to the Flesh not the Spirit, but I would caution that Satan is a fallen ANGEL not a human being of flesh so he has deceived us into a confusion concerning the true nature of the spirit realm which was CREATED FIRST. All things truly Spiritual are much more real than mere flesh and blood but Satan accepts Man as an animal instead of who he really is.)
3. Satan represents undefiled
(A very hypocritical view since Satan is a deceived being!
wisdom instead of hypocritical self-deceit!
( You can say that Satan represents something but the fruits of his presence represent the truth, he is anything but undefiled his nature is defiled in its very make-up. There is nothing in the actions of satanic knowledge that would warrant this statement, in fact every action of Satan in the Earth PROVES that he is just the opposite of this, he is the definition of Self-Deceit! )

(Self-deceit was the reason Satan fell in the first place!)
4. Satan represents kindness to those who deserve it instead of love wasted on ingrates!
(In other words you like those who like you and to hell with the world! Satan’s nature is a selfish one, using those who serve him to get back at God for HIS OWN CHOICES, but do not be deceived Satan hates man because we are God’s image, the reflection of just what Satan lost!)
5. Satan represents vengeance instead of turning the other cheek!
( Vengeance?
Against who?
Satan did it all to himself, he has NO ONE to blame but himself, he was ALONE with his own thoughts when he became jealous of his creators power and his right to make man in his own image.
Satan is the most pitiful of creatures, the most childish and immature of every creature God made, selfish to the point of absurdity, so VENGEANCE which ONLY belongs to those who have a righteous cause is not his but God’s ALONE! )

6. Satan represents responsibility to the responsible instead of concern for psychic vampires!
(psychic vampires are those who hold the spiritual view point of Man in the image of God. One who uses subtle persuasion techniques and passive aggressive behavior to manipulate other while taking the high road to self-righteous indignation.
While this is true of religious hypocrites and their judgment of anyone’s sins, it does not apply to those who hold the truth of God up as a light toward sin to expose it!
It is interesting that Satan would talk of being responsible when he of all creation was found irresponsible in the highest degree.)
7. Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his “divine spiritual and intellectual development,” has become the most vicious animal of all!
( This statement seems to have an element of truth to it if you don’t dig to deep, but this is an evolutionary statement not a well thought out one, by simply respecting man as another animal you then place all man’s actions in the realm of flesh as O.K because his ends reflect survival of the fittest not morality.
Satan will not deal with man’s true nature because that is the side of man he is most Jealous of and why he deceives man in the first place, to remove man’s knowledge of his past history before the fall!)

8. Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification!
(What he fails to mention is the penalty of sin which is spiritual death, as every physical sin has a spiritual counterpart we are held too, every action of the flesh has an equal and opposite reaction in the spiritual realm which we will one day pay the price in spades!)

9. Satan has been the best friend the Church has ever had, as He has kept it in business all these years!

“Friend or Foe?”
( The real problem with this statement is that Satan is no ones friend and wouldn’t know how to be one if he tried, every statement so FAR PROVES that to be true of him, he is a deceiver, a liar, a destroyer, a murderer and thief but not a friend, he even HATES THOSE WHO SAY THEY LOVE HIM.
Satan is incapable of any form of love, even human love is too much like God to be used by him so he must pervert and twist even that to lust to be comfortable in its presence!
Since the Churches business is God’s business Satan can play no part in that business and thus can be considered no friend of the Church, whose business by the way, is in casting out Satan from God’s business as God cast him out of paradise, to separate not conjoin, too bring his works down not to build them up!

Our business and busy-ness depends on God NOT Satan’s presence, there are plenty of things to do without the presence of Satan being a factor so he overrates his importance, when Satan is finally bound the Church will do the Fathers business in creation without any evil so this statement is absurd at best! 
“(Satan) was a murderer from the beginning and has always hated the truth. There is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.”  
(John 8:44)
There are a number of alternatives he throws at man that have been prevalent since Satan first started temping humankind.
1) One alternative is relativism, a philosophy that claims truth is always changing. Morality is by majority; if everyone says pornographic movies are good, then they simply become good.


Everyone can’t be right?
Someone is lieing!”
2) Another alternative to Scripture is subjectivism, which suggests that something may be true for you but not for me.
3) Another is empiricism, which requires us to measure or test everything for it to be true – if you cannot see God, He must not exist.
4) Satan also pushes existentialism, which argues that the only truth is that which you can experience. The Bible can only become the Word of God if you get an experience from it.
5) Another alternative to the Bible is the philosophy of rationalism, which makes a god of logic. This allows a man to decide what he will deem true or untrue; substituting “Thus saith the man” for “Thus saith the Lord.”
6) Perhaps the most dangerous alternative to Scripture is pragmatism, where we forget all about truth and simply search for what works. If the Bible doesn’t seem to work, we junk it for something else that does.
Here’s a great example of a BIG SATANIC LIE!
Here’s a big clue you idiot bigot, Hitler killed millions of Jews from and IN OTHER COUNTRIES besides Germany, DUH!
Simple math proves this a lie but its propaganda not fact so who’s counting? 
Pray Tell!
The Occult just as this propaganda only serves to twist the facts and reality to allow deception a foundation for growth! 
I came out of this mess so I know it to be true, that while I believe there are REAL people with hearts, with dreams and very sincerely looking for the truth BUT what kind of truth, a truth based in FACTS or a vague, misty version of the truth twisted around a mystery?
The real test that proves Christianity is superior to the Occult in every way are in the realm of testimony, no Occultist has ever had their life changed to better humanity in any way because the Occult is a selfish endeavor dedicated to animal lust and not the betterment of mankind.
