  1. If I may give you a senior point of view in our present 20th century. 1# is that a person should not attract the wrong attention to herself.Male or Female.That is strike and draw the flesh in it's manifest.The fragrance of Christ should be the predominating factor here.In some mesures,in my opinion the dress code of the 20 th century manifest much of the breaches in the herarts of the Lord's fold. We need to set always the Lord before our eyes. I am discerning the World indeed creeping into the gathering for the last 30 some years i have fellowship in gatherings. Their is that focus of how beautiful and sexy or handsome aspect one may seem to promote.Rather than giving no occasion to the flesh.It is more deplorable to see married couples showing how worldly and careless they are.The Word of God point through John to walk in Love,and how can we say we love God if we love not our bretren. Love the scripture point do not behave unseemly. Can we be free from guilt of displeasing the Lord in our conscience.Toward men,bretren.The womaan that fear the Lord saith the scripture."She shall be praised. The price-less-ness of a meek and gentle spirit.It is in specific place of the married to praise,honour,complement his partner or like .Female to female,male to male,or a couple and elderly to praise or complement another in the rightful context.There is no better complement to rejoice in that Christ manifest in your life and mine.We must face that we are to put off these mortal to cloth with the new.And the fact that men's look of the outward decays at one point and time.The fragrance we leave lingers a lasting memorials toward our fellowmen and sweetsmelling odour to God.Love in Yeshua.Orphan/Yves
  2. Looking to strenghten the feeble knees and the hands that hang down.Concerning the questions of the pilgrim's hearts. why such prevailing in the teachings amidst God's fold? You may say like I ask myself? "THE LOST OF SALVATION" One of the facts right from the start I would point out here is the need for grace on the part of Brethrens endued with wisdom.We understand like a brother put it .We need to instruct and filled the gaps using the scriptures in their context.But I would at this time bring answer for this unhealthy teaching by questions we have had or you may have even now.Reasonings.My question to you in multipled form beloved would follow as.How did our Salvation originated from. In other words.Were you saved out of the ordinary source.(God).That is what the scripture attest when it say: "As many as received Him...Which were born not of blood (Jews) nor the will of man...(The vessel or means).nor the flesh...nothing of oneself...BUT OF God. So, we conclude that God is the source,the means,and owner of our Salvation,right? Alright then.At this point we have no arguments right? "Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect it is God that justify,who shall condemn? Christ has died yea hath risen.My second question to you beloved would be would you accept anything that has no security? You mean to say that God could give you and I something base on performance!! Like Salvation! Do not scriptures point in the books of Acts "putting a yoke on the disciples that none of the forefathers could bare!!!" Now would that not send the message of work,work,work with securing your own Salvation.What is the stressing point of relationships.Like marriage.Do your thoughts is your mad in love,and you want to do this and that for your beloved.Or is your thoughts like I better do this and that if I want to keep that relationship? we can call this "FIRST LOVE". At this point I would ask another question.Why did you seek Salvation? What was the center of your attractions toward Yeshua the Lord. (Physical Attractions) The Church (Building),fellowship,and outside sources.Like the physical aspect and 7 cloud experiences.Or was it all about Jesus? The rest and peace He gaved you and I when we were freed from sin's heavy load.Turning our mourning into dancing and sorrrows with the oil of joy. The apostle Peter responded to the Lord Jesus.."will ye also leave...answered were will we go!! Thou has the words of Eternal life and we have believed....We invest into a relationship because of our love.We do not call it works. Why do the human thinks he has to do something to be loved or appreciate?Human nature.The Word of God point out that while we were yet sinners...Christ died for us.Man!! you mean God love me filthy wrecth that I am? Yes indeed!! but what about all these things ive' done or do not do or should be doing? Is this not the question you and I may have and do have? Yes beloved we have.The delemma then is again ourselves(Works).not Christ the center of our affections.But what was the center of the new life we found in Christ. Fellowship around His Word, and the Saints and unity of the Spirit.Why the shift of Security to Works then in our midst.I would say different reasons.Human reasonings is a great chunk of the matter. "The ya but you have to show you are saved...and someone fall back into the world...a particular sin or rebellion etc...Now let me ask you beloved are you talking about yourself? or someone else or anything between the lines? Let me quote a scripture in the book of job "A man needs the compassion of his friends though he forsake the fear of the Almighty..." I would point out that the issues about works is a fundamental teachings of the world's false gods.Sadly manifest in Christendom.False prophets teach such and preach either war or peace to get their needs met.Not because they care for the flocks. So the focus is our Love for the Lord manifest to others and eachother.These complement and nuture or service and mutual obedience to our Lord and master.Not the other way around.Yes I purposely avoided repeating the various scriptures used to support The security of the believer that is attack in the present age.And we must contend for the Faith.But my desire in sharing these thoughts of the heart is due to the struggles we have experienced at one point or another.And to not put a stumbling block before others seeing how much griefs it may have cause us?In our beloved Yeshua/Agape Orphan

  5. Cooking interview tomorow at 5pm
  6. If God created you yo smoke he would have put a Cheminy on your head!
  7. Well I do not how old were some of you when I was save. I was 20 years old the ladies dressed like in fairy tales and the young man respectful and handsome.The gathering were silent at the preaching of the Word and the gospel .Yes there were the occasional noise of children quited by the Parents.There were no drink or chewing gum accepted behaviours then or drinks allowed.Now some of these look like theaters with loud speakers.The preachers looks like air pilots with their high teck mics. I do not remember as a child.I had little time to experience it ? I wish I was born in a Church setting.It may have saved me from a number of heartaches. The most important is being in the Big family.
  8. For who the law is made? " The law was a schoolmaster to bring us to Christ" Paul's character is a Hebrew of Hebrews. Everything that a law abiding Jews and pharasees looked .A murderous type to prove the law was the way. There was not a better choice in the wisdom of God after the resurection of the Saviour and accession to heaven.But at last he appeared to Paul. The disciples were still in need of help because of the coming tribulation and persecution.Paul and an ennemy of the cross lefted the disciples of the Lord speechless even doubting of the radical change.It is the wisdom of God that choose such vessel.We realise that no offense to the brethren Jewish. That killedl the king of glory. Reading the books of the Acts you notice that Christ the glorified appeared to him.The Spirit told the disciples to set him appart for the work I have called Him scripture point. Althought he sought fellowship with the brethren in Jerusalem and Apostles.He did not seek their approvals for God's call. He was the best instrument for contending and resist them that interfer with the liberty of the believers.He was such an instrument for to straithen Peter's disimulation and cowerdness before the law abiding and followers in Jerusalem. No doudts all of us are confronted at one point or another to face the popular teachings in denominationalism.But Paul was chosen instrument and needed in the beginning premitive Church. Paul was not a half commited Servant. His conversion was radical. He had no fall or turning to his commitment.His sorrow for sin and even death of Stephen. Preaching and expounding the old Testament.No doubt had an impact to his service. He did not betray His Saviour like Peter in the trying furnace. He would nevertheless Peter was restored and the Word of the Lord Jesus pointed to Peter "When thou was young thou wentest withersoever thou willest,but the day come....were they will lead you were thou wantest not to go....Remark the Word of Paul when reminded of belivers.His response? "why do you break my heart not only to go to Jerusalem but to die!!! Same word of Peter were he failled.Let me ask those that has any hope in the Law. Paul said I count all things but lost for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ.No wonder Paul is still opposed in the mind of law keepers.My counsels? If you see no wisdom even after pointing the scripture.Leave it such are not seeking the Lord and his kingdom.Love in Yeshua.
  9. First Love....All the following exercises dissipate and become clerical and ortodoxal.
  10. "Repairers of Breaches" I would like to give you in the perfect number in scripture 7 points of rebuilding."The Breaches-The wall" . Using the Book of( Nemehiah chapter 4:1-15). 1#/ Results of Rebuilding.-2# Responses toward opposers.- 3# Resolution manifested.4# Retaliation resolved.5#Reinforce watcfulness.6# Regroupe with believers.7# Reaffirm the promises. 1#Results- So in verse 1 to 3 of chapter point to the feeling of the adversary toward the servant and child of God seeking the welfare of His people.And is the target of his hatred ,annoyance and mockery. To cause him to look at himself and the present giants to deter him from faith promises.You must not take this opposition as something unsual Brethren.You belong to Christ and your interest and investment is for the One who "called you out of darkness into His marvelous light." (Verse 1-3) 2#Responses- Prayer of retribution.is pointed here.I believe in the book of Psalms some of these can be found.That is remind the ennemy of what God said and reserve to those who oppose His work.(Verse 4-5) 3#Resolved- The reality of Faith manifest itself in works.In the case of Saul and Israel with their shout of war.On both side their were not heading to the valley.That is the giant saw there was fear and used it to chalenge.The sight of the Goliath detered any possibility of victory to the weak,cowerd and faithless.It took a young man like David to straighten the issue." With the faith's zeal expression-"let play no game here and let's confront such arrogance!!!" "We are more than conquerer through Him who keep on strenghtening us."And again "We have not received the Spirit of timidity,but of power love,and a sound mind."(Verse 6,) 4#Retaliation- Be prepare and do not be surprise of retaliation.Do not suspect the one who got benefits from using you or others in some area that he will let you go without putting a fight!!! ( Verse 7-8) 5#Reinforce.- Be watchful in prayer.Like scripture point's out." For your Adversary the devil walk to and fro seeking whom he may devour."(Verse 9,) 6#Regroupe- The work is to much for one man to bare.You and I need others to bare in the kingdom's labour. Like someone put it at one time."Do the work like everything depended on you. And see others first before you.(Verse 10-13) 7#Reaffirm- Finally Remind yourself and others of God's unchanging and faithful promises.God give and has given amples of proof of His faithfulness and answers do you think? Yes indeed and Amen.(Verse 14-15) "Great is thy faithfulness O God my Father,there is no shadow of turning with Thee.Thou changeth not Thy compassion they fail not.As Thou hath been and forever will.......
  11. Terrible!!! how old are you Hi! hi! Good for you found your shirt.At my age I start things everywhere to remind me of things!!
  12. I do not see from scriptures as a whole, teaching that one can Loose Salvation .Remark I said, Salvation not his....SalvationPaul point out All things are of God's and you are His". The power to will and do his good and perfect will, the power to do all things through him who strenghten us. The conditional part is granted in the obedience of Faith. We love him because he first love us. We earn our master investment to different degree.It is on earth we do so. That is were the free will comes.We have the will to do his good pleasures.It do not come from our forcing ourselves!! What was the answer of of Saul to Samuel blessed are you in the Lord...I have fully obeyed the voice of the Lord. The said he later I did not see at the time you convened so I did myself violence and offer the sacrifice...He lost his position (Priviledges,Blessings)I do not understand how people are so cut up with the Popular view of individuals and thinkers of the past or present!!! I do not lean on calvanistic point of view nor of any.What I know from scriptures is the Lord himself that confirmed and affirmed in convictions.The teaching learned from denominationlist were not only foolish but even detrimntal to my progress.In general that is.I am thankful I have not read not many books in my life outside of study books to make me understand the roots and meaning of a particular passage or word .Other helpful resources as well to show the context.and give sense of a particular passage and words. I am not a theologian,pastor,teacher or whatever title given among brethren.Having divine life.I am a brother saved by grace speaking about revealed truth. I do appreciate life examples for faith driven man and woman in scriptures or Saints past and present. These really feeds my soul to follow their conversation and Christ-likeness.Love in Yeshua Brethren.Orphan
  13. "Greater is He that is you that is the World...." Submit to God resist the devil and he will flee from you." We are shielded by the power of God through Faith. Orphan
  14. I have been young an know old yet I have seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed beg for bread.Blessed are those that hunger after righteousness for they shall be filled.
  15. You are well advised in this.And you will have ample of occasion to prove your faith.In my little pilgrimage I have many times seeing the hand of God manifest.And I have learned contentment in a lowly place. Like the Lord Jesus taught in the gospel. The body is more than meet.Good thinking.Continue in biblical thoughts.Orphan
