    God's Ways

    Discovering God's ways is like going to an art exhibit of an Artist with the most creative genius. His ways are above our own. They are to be admired, pondered upon...and allowed to penetrate into our consciousness...until we understand the intent, style, and ways of the Artist. The messages, seemingly very hidden and deeply woven into the art, strike you as you let your gaze penetrate into the brush strokes of the Master. But God's ways begin with a backdrop. Here in Quebec there is an artist who always paints his canvas black before doing anything else. It gives his colours a unique contrast...giving it an unmistakable signature so that you can tell his paintings from others right away. God does something similar but in an much larger way of course. God's backdrop is love. Everything that He paints ...He does so on the canvas...His canvas...which is love. Next comes the setting. We could liken this to the things that others are set against....like say the mountains in the background. These are the laws that God orders everything in. Without these laws...nothing in the foreground has any context or relevance. NO, God's paintings are not just for show...they support all life. But life has order. It follows laws. Without order there would be only chaos. In fact, the order is so precise that one can see the Artist in every living thing. Everything moves and is according to His laws.
  2. When I first was born-again and received knowledge that I was a son of God and that I was ALWAYS a son of God I used to believe just as the majority of those in Christendom that the kingdom of God was an actual kingdom with a king, (with a realm or location, with subjects, a royal court, a castle or mansion, etc.), all the fixings of what we all commonly know in this earth as a kingdom. But I was wrong. We were wrong. Christendom was wrong and still is. Matthew 12:28 (KJV) 28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. Luke 11:20 (KJV) 20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. Question: What is Jesus Christ doing? Answer: Jesus Christ is casting out 'devils.' Jesus Christ is, in effect, saying that He is the kingdom of God. A kingdom OF GOD that has come 'unto you.' This 'kingdom' is not the same as the kingdom of heaven. This kingdom (of heaven) does have a king, a realm, a court, subject, etc. Luke 17:20-21 (KJV) 20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. The apostle Paul adds to this truth when he says: Romans 14:17 (KJV) 17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. The kingdom of God is Christ. Christ is within 'you.' Christ is righteousness, peace, and joy... all the deific attributes of Christ Himself. And flesh has inherited Christ as Promised by God to His people Israel, and spiritual Israel. And this is our inheritance as named souls that were contemplated by God in Trinity in His Mind BEFORE He created heaven earth and man. His Elect people were written in a 'book' of life of the lamb slain from [BEFORE] the foundation (creation) of the world (Rev. 13:8). 1 Corinthians 15:50 (KJV) 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. The unsaved cannot inherit the kingdom of God who is Christ: John 14:17 (KJV) 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. The unsaved who are not named in the book of life of the lamb slain... a.k.a., the world, CANNOT RECEIVE Christ. No way, no how. So, there are two groups of people on the planet, always has been: those in Covenant with God, and those not in Covenant with God. Righteousness = The Father Peace = the Son, the Prince of Peace Joy = the Holy Spirit. Go figure.
  3. Please share what you know to be the difference between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of heaven? You can even state that there is no difference. KJV scriptures, video links, or website info to support your answer will help me. I hadn't really thought of there being a difference, but I see some that say there is. What do you say?
  4. Shabbat shalom, everyone. Sometimes, strange comparisons come to mind, and this is one of the strangest. HOWEVER, it is also one that I feel not only explains my position on "Heaven," but also shows why it became necessary to have such a position. I grew up on wonderful movies like "White Christmas" with Bing Crosby, "It's a Wonderful Life" with Jimmy Stewart, and "The Naughty Nineties" with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. Here's an excerpt from the "Who's On First" routine that Abbott and Costello did for the movie: (This was found at Baseball-Almanac.com.) It's a GREAT routine, and Abbott and Costello were probably the ONLY team that could have delivered it so hilariously! Now, here's the comparison: Who : Naturally :: Kingdom : Heaven. This is read, "'Who' is to 'Naturally' as 'Kingdom' is to 'Heaven.'" "Going to Heaven" is as bad to say as "picking up the ball and throwing it to Naturally!" Let me explain in terms of English grammar: "Who" is the guy's nickname; therefore, Abbott used it as a personal noun (and not a "personal PROnoun," either)! However, Costello is hearing it as an interrogative pronoun. "Naturally" is used by Abbott as an adverb, but Costello reasons that THIS is the personal noun! "Heaven" is NOT a "place" for which we are destined. We are destined for the Kingdom of God ruled by the King, God. It is called the "Kingdom of God" which means it is "God's Kingdom." God's Representative (His "Messiah"; His "Mashiyach"; His "Anointed"; His "Christos"; His "Christ") will be its PHYSICAL King, who is ONE with His Father, God, and who will be VISIBLE to the world! John 1:18 (KJV) 18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. The Messiah's Kingdom is described this way by the angel Gavri'el (Gabriel) to Miryam (Mary, Yeshua`s mother): Luke 1:30-33 (KJV) 30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS (Greek: Ieesous = Aramaic: Yeeshuwa`). 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. He was both the son of his ancestor David the King and the "Son of the Highest" because of these passages of Scripture: 2 Samuel 7:1-17 (KJV) 1 And it came to pass, when the king sat in his house, and the LORD had given him rest round about from all his enemies; 2 That the king said unto Nathan the prophet, See now, I dwell in an house of cedar, but the ark of God dwelleth within curtains. 3 And Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in thine heart; for the LORD is with thee. 4 And it came to pass that night, that the word of the LORD came unto Nathan, saying, 5 Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the LORD, Shalt thou build me an house for me to dwell in? 6 Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle. 7 In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel spake I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people Israel, saying, Why build ye not me an house of cedar? 8 Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel: 9 And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth. 10 Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime, 11 And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house. 12 And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. 14 I WILL BE HIS FATHER, AND HE SHALL BE MY SON. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: 15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. 16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever. 17 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David. This scene was repeated in 1 Chronicles 17: 1 Chronicles 17:1-15 (KJV) 1 Now it came to pass, as David sat in his house, that David said to Nathan the prophet, Lo, I dwell in an house of cedars, but the ark of the covenant of the LORD remaineth under curtains. 2 Then Nathan said unto David, Do all that is in thine heart; for God is with thee. 3 And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came to Nathan, saying, 4 Go and tell David my servant, Thus saith the LORD, Thou shalt not build me an house to dwell in: 5 For I have not dwelt in an house since the day that I brought up Israel unto this day; but have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another. 6 Wheresoever I have walked with all Israel, spake I a word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people, saying, Why have ye not built me an house of cedars? 7 Now therefore thus shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, even from following the sheep, that thou shouldest be ruler over my people Israel: 8 And I have been with thee whithersoever thou hast walked, and have cut off all thine enemies from before thee, and have made thee a name like the name of the great men that are in the earth. 9 Also I will ordain a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, and they shall dwell in their place, and shall be moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness waste them any more, as at the beginning, 10 And since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel. Moreover I will subdue all thine enemies. Furthermore I tell thee that the LORD will build thee an house. 11 And it shall come to pass, when thy days be expired that thou must go to be with thy fathers, that I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall be of thy sons; and I will establish his kingdom. 12 He shall build me an house, and I will stablish his throne for ever. 13 I WILL BE HIS FATHER, AND HE SHALL BE MY SON: and I will not take my mercy away from him, as I took it from him that was before thee: 14 But I will settle him in mine house and in my kingdom for ever: and his throne shall be established for evermore. 15 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David. These passages are NOT talking about Shlomoh (Solomon); they are talking about David's SEED! Furthermore, David acknowledged that YHWH GOD was King, not just himself! He recognized GOD as HIS King! Psalm 5:1-2 (KJV) 1 {To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David.} Give ear to my words, O LORD (YHWH), consider my meditation. 2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. So, the KINGDOM OF GOD will be ruled by the Messiah Yeshua`, and the KINGDOM OF GOD is our destiny! "Going THROUGH THE HEAVENS (THE SKIES) to get to the Messiah's Kingdom and be there forever" is just a truth that unfortunately has been misinterpreted to "GOING TO HEAVEN to be there forever!" Again, here is how Strong's Exhaustive Concordance lists "ouranos" in its Greek Dictionary: 3772 οὐρανός, οὐρανοῦ, ὁ. Perhaps from the same as oros (through the idea of elevation); the sky; by extension, heaven (as the abode of God); by implication, happiness, power, eternity; specially, the Gospel (Christianity) -- air, heaven(-ly), sky. Now, I know that it is also called "THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN," but one must understand that the Greek uses the words "HEE BASILEIA TOON OURANOON" (using "EE" for an eta and "OO" for an omega), the "-oon" (omega-nu) ending being the plural ending for both the noun "ouranos" and its article "ho." In Koine Greek, there are 8 cases for a noun: the nominative (which acts as the subject in a sentence), the genitive (translated with an "of"), the ablative (translated with a "from"), the locative (translated with an "in" or an "at), the instrumental (translated with a "with" or a "by"), the dative (translated with a "to" or a "for"), the accusative (which acts as the direct object in a sentence), and the vocative (as though one is talking TO the noun, acting as an appositive). However, in CLASSICAL Greek (Attic Greek), there are only FIVE cases: the nominative, the genitive, the dative, the accusative, and the vocative. In Classical Greek, the genitive case can be used for BOTH the traditional genitive and origins of the ablative case! Thus, one can also translate Classical genitive case as either "of" or "from" in English. Indeed, even in the Koine Greek, the genitive and ablative cases are SPELLED THE SAME WAY! (That's also true about the locative, instrumental, and dative cases; they also are all spelled the same as each other.) My point is that the words, "hee basileia toon ouranoon," could also be translated as "the kingdom FROM the skies (the plural)," speaking not about "ownership" but about "ORIGIN!" One may have ASSUMED a genitive case when it should have been considered to be an ablative case! Yeshua` SHALL come again, not just to "judge the world," although He will certainly do that. He is to be its KING! As I've said before, one of the roles of the King of Israel was to be its "Supreme Court Justice!" Lesser judges could handle the easier matters of judgment, but when necessary, they could escalate the matter to the King who would then be the FINAL SAY in the matter. He is to rule and reign, both over Israel and its tributaries until He has conquered ALL the nations of the earth! Some shall submit willingly; some shall submit reluctantly to save their economies; many will resist. He shall "rule them with a rod of iron," and He shall "subdue all His enemies" until the last enemy, death itself, is finally subdued, as well. This will take a THOUSAND YEARS to accomplish (Psalm 2:1-12; 1 Corinthians 15:20-28; 2 Peter 3:7-12; Revelation 20:1-7). All this must be accomplished BEFORE the Great White Throne Judgment after the final Resurrection, after which Yeshua` shall turn the Kingdom - the WORLD EMPIRE at that time - over to His Father. It's not until AFTER all this, that God allows His New Jerusalem to come down out of the sky to the New Earth with its New Sky to be what many have called "Heaven on earth." It will be THEN that God "wipes away all tears" and "creates all things new."
  5. Acts 10:38, "How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him." Jesus was always taking territory. God calls us to invade and have an impact. We don't need to wait around for something to happen then "react" to it. Rather our actions should be making the enemy react to us. We are in a battle to see people restored to the Father, restored in their lives and made whole in the presence of Jesus. Be intentional about all that you do. Know that Jesus has given you power, authority, influence, and a life PURPOSE in the Holy Spirit to see lives changed. Expand the horizons of the possibilities in what God can do through you. He has no limitations and intends to overflow our lives with His life-changing presence. Philippians 3:7,8 - "But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ." Paul considered everything prized by his culture worthless compared with the awesome experience of knowing Jesus. Affirmations: MY TREASURE IS IN JESUS. I LOVE JESUS ABOVE ALL ELSE. JESUS CALLS ME TO A HIGHER LOVE, TO EMBRACE THE BURNING AND PASSIONATE HEART OF GOD. "God knew what He was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love Him along the same lines as the life of His Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity He restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in Him." - Romans 8:29 The Message Seek first the Kingdom of God. Let His righteousness do rightness all around you. For, understand, when those come to oppose you – lift up His right hand, His Word, against that. For His left hand will sustain you, and His right hand will give you the direction of counsel, by His Spirit. For He is raising up a people who are hungry to seek His Kingdom, hungry to taste of the Kingdom, and hungry to rule in the Kingdom. Understand and meditate; dwell upon His Word. Seek His face, for when you seek Him with your whole heart, absolutely, positively, unconditionally, you will find Him. For you must realize, He presents Himself to you, for His Kingdom is among you, and His Kingdom is within you. Change citizenships. Think of His Kingdom. Understand, as His Kingdom representative. As a citizen of His Kingdom – knowing His knowledge, knowing the authority He has given you in His name -- use it with His Spirit, for He will not leave you alone, but He will direct, lead, counsel, and anoint you. For He has called you to do the works of His Kingdom. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY
  6. 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. At Ephesians 1:20, we read that God the Father seated Christ at his own right hand in the heavenly realms, which implies that in some sense Christ was made or appointed as King at the time of his ascension, in a spiritual (not literal sense), over his deceased saints (in heaven). Notice the use of the word “rule” at verse 21, Christ was ruling as King, in some sense according to Paul at the time of his writing this book of Ephesians. Now I am not denying that as Yahweh God himself, Christ is eternally King and has eternally been so due to his innate divinity. Also, at the time of the second coming, Christ’s kingdom will then be extended from heaven, unto to this earth, with the entire universe being under his Kingdom rule, which then becomes both a universal rule (i.e. without any challenge or opposition), and also an eternal rule. So please don’t misquote me, as I am not claiming that Christ’s rule is currently physical or upon this earth, I believe that his kingly rule is currently a spiritual rule over the “souls” of his deceased saints in the intermediate state and is from (or in) heaven. However, Revelation 11:15 states that one day (possibly in the very near future), we shall hear voices in heaven proclaiming that the kingdom of this present world has become the kingdom of Christ, and that He (Christ) will then reign forever and ever, in a greatly expanded kingdom rule which will now be physical, and earthly. I would believe that this expansion from spiritual to physical rule happens at the second coming of Christ, others will disagree, and claim that it will happen one thousand years later, at the conclusion of the ‘millennium.’ However, it will happen, at some time in the future. The title “King of Kings” is used of Christ twice at Revelation 17:14 and 19:16, to convey the fact that at some time in the future, his rule shall be both universal and completely unopposed, as his enemies will be this time be defeated.
  7. Luke Chapter 18 15And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when [his] disciples saw [it], they rebuked them. 16But Jesus called them [unto him], and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. 17Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.
  8. Is religion really what we see on TV and in the churches? The oddity of life is we are born knowing nothing, we wake up I this world and see what the world calls religion, we listen to the so called authorities and every body seems to agree and we become influenced by the world to search the scriptures based on the knowledge of men. Every person on earth who possesses a P.H.D. in theology, apologetics etc. Learned it from another man. I tried to make sense of it their way from every possible angle, and It did not make sense. It would have been easy to determine listening to them, that the bible just makes no sense, and is full of contradictions, but I chose to find out for myself if it indeed made sense or not. This is what I found the bible to say and it is nothing like the P.H.D. say it is. In the beginning, God came down to earth. Everyone likes to start in the middle and talk about Jesus but they forget that religion began when God came down on the mountain. Exodus 7:16 Let my people go that they may serve me. When God came upon the mountain and called Moses up and gave him two tablets, Of stone Moses broke them then in Exodus 34:1 said unto Moses hew two tables of stone like the first “and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables which you broke.” Then in 34:27 and then the Lord said unto Moses “you write these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with you and Israel” So, God wrote the covenant on two stones and Moses wrote them in the Torah/Pentateuch/Book of the covenant. The books that follow Exodus are Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. Leviticus was written for the priests, and therefore we can know this book is the book of what is referred to as religion these days. Numbers separates Leviticus from Deuteronomy and in Numbers 1:1-46 God tells Moses to separate all that are 21 and Up able to go to war from the Levites. Deuteronomy is the book of law, war is a matter of lawful Government not Religion. In Leviticus God instructs the priests to be the educators, the physicians and the welfare providers. In Leviticus 1:3 God instructs the priests that all of the peoples offerings are to be done by free will. In Deuteronomy 1:3 Moses wrote what the Lord commanded him. This amounts to the first basic social and political science the world ever had. The world knew laws but God freed the Israelites from the bondage of the law and introduced them to social science with specific instructions that social science must be done by free will and kept separate from the law which is not done by free will. In Exodus 19:4 God says “you have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles wings and brought you to myself” God exercised Deuteronomy of the covenant against the Egyptians for crimes against humanity. Then he exercised Leviticus social justice from the covenant by his own free will to free them and to teach them social justice. Then in Exodus 19:5 he sums up 19:4 saying “if you will obey my voice and keep my covenant, then you shall be a peculiar treasure to me above all people: for all the earth is mine. 19:6 and you shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. So God comes down on the mountain after exercising the fullness of the law and religion saying when we obey the covenant we will become a kingdom formed by him i.e. the kingdom of God. In heaven God sits upon his throne and Jesus sits on his throne on Gods right hand. When Jesus came he told us to pray “our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. So in heaven Jesus is the king of social justice, and God is the Judge of the earth. Which makes up the kingdom of heaven. It is his will that we obey the covenant to have a legal government for laws punishments and war, and a separate government for social justice ran by free will. All of the greatest philosophers of all times have failed to understand social and political science because they tried to solve it from mans perspective and left God out of the picture as if he did not know he created social and political science. After God gives the covenant in Leviticus and Deuteronomy, man records his progress in keeping the covenant in Joshua, Judges, Ruth, Samuel, Kings and Chronicles where you will read when they did gods will and kept the covenant they were exalted and when they went on their own they were debased. So then God sends the prophets to warn them of their not doing Gods will, from Nehemiah all the way to Malachi 2:1 where God says now o priests this commandment is for you. 2:2 If you will not lay it to heart to give glory to my name I will send you a curse. 2:4 you shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you that my covenant might be with Levi saith the Lord of hosts. 2:8 but you have departed out of the way, you have caused many to stumble at the law AND you have corrupted the covenant of Levi. From the beginning God gave the Leviticus covenant and the law of Deuteronomy mankind has perverted the covenant of Levi by considering that Leviticus and Deuteronomy were both laws with punishments. The apostles called this “living by the law” When they crucified Jesus “”The King of Leviticus”” they said “We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.” Man made his own Leviticus law regarding religion attached it to Deuteronomy law with a death sentence in place of free will. God did not make a law to kill his son. It is written Jesus died for our sins. However in many instances in the bible for means because. Jesus died because of the sin of mixing law and religion and not having a separation of law and religion. Jesus knew he was the King of Leviticus law, when he was confronted by religious leaders with the woman caught in adultery (marriage is a religious act) the religious leaders wanted Jesus to use the law of Deuteronomy and kill her, he knew he was the King of Leviticus who sits on the right hand of God the supreme judge of the world so he refused to exercise the law which is Gods authority. Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Mark 1:15 the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: Repent ye, and believe the gospel. If man ever comes to his senses and establishes the temple as a nation and keeps the covenant of separation of law and brings all the tithe to the temple so the hungry have food God says: Bring all of the tithe unto the storehouse that there may be meat in my house, and prove me now saith the lord of hosts if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it. 11. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes. Herein is the so called rapture where we meet Jesus in the clouds/spirit. Jesus once said “the foxes have holes, and the birds have nests; but the son of man has no place to lay his head.” Israel rejected Jesus and the kingdom of God was taken from them. Matthew 21:42-43 Did you never read the scriptures, the stone which the builders rejected the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lords doing and it is marvelous in our eyes. Therefore say I unto you the kingdom of God shall be taken from you and given unto another nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. God has restored the knowledge it is contained in the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution creating a separation of church and state but the wicked one has deceived the whole world and usurped the powers of the church to establish welfare healthcare education in the government of law fulfilling the proverb the dog has returned to his vomit.

Every person on earth who possesses a P.H.D. in theology, apologetics etc. Learned it from another man. I tried to make sense of it their way from every possible angle, and It did not make sense. It would have been easy to determine listening to them, that the bible just makes no sense, and is full of contradictions, but I chose to find out for myself if it indeed made sense or not. This is what I found the bible to say and it is nothing like the P.H.D. say it is. In the beginning, God came down to earth. Everyone likes to start in the middle and talk about Jesus but they forget that religion began when God came down on the mountain. Exodus 7:16 Let my people go that they may serve me. When God came upon the mountain and called Moses up and gave him two tablets, Of stone Moses broke them then in Exodus 34:1 said unto Moses hew two tables of stone like the first “and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables which you broke.” Then in 34:27 and then the Lord said unto Moses “you write these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with you and Israel” So, God wrote the covenant on two stones and Moses wrote them in the Torah/Pentateuch/Book of the covenant. The books that follow Exodus are Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. Leviticus was written for the priests, and therefore we can know this book is the book of what is referred to as religion these days. Numbers separates Leviticus from Deuteronomy and in Numbers 1:1-46 God tells Moses to separate all that are 21 and Up able to go to war from the Levites. Deuteronomy is the book of law, war is a matter of lawful Government not Religion. In Leviticus God instructs the priests to be the educators, the physicians and the welfare providers. In Leviticus 1:3 God instructs the priests that all of the peoples offerings are to be done by free will. In Deuteronomy 1:3 Moses wrote what the Lord commanded him. This amounts to the first basic social and political science the world ever had. The world knew laws but God freed the Israelites from the bondage of the law and introduced them to social science with specific instructions that social science must be done by free will and kept separate from the law which is not done by free will. In Exodus 19:4 God says “you have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles wings and brought you to myself” God exercised Deuteronomy of the covenant against the Egyptians for crimes against humanity. Then he exercised Leviticus social justice from the covenant by his own free will to free them and to teach them social justice. Then in Exodus 19:5 he sums up 19:4 saying “if you will obey my voice and keep my covenant, then you shall be a peculiar treasure to me above all people: for all the earth is mine. 19:6 and you shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. So God comes down on the mountain after exercising the fullness of the law and religion saying when we obey the covenant we will become a kingdom formed by him i.e. the kingdom of God. In heaven God sits upon his throne and Jesus sits on his throne on Gods right hand. When Jesus came he told us to pray “our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. So in heaven Jesus is the king of social justice, and God is the Judge of the earth. Which makes up the kingdom of heaven. It is his will that we obey the covenant to have a legal government for laws punishments and war, and a separate government for social justice ran by free will. All of the greatest philosophers of all times have failed to understand social and political science because they tried to solve it from mans perspective and left God out of the picture as if he did not know he created social and political science. After God gives the covenant in Leviticus and Deuteronomy, man records his progress in keeping the covenant in Joshua, Judges, Ruth, Samuel, Kings and Chronicles where you will read when they did gods will and kept the covenant they were exalted and when they went on their own they were debased. So then God sends the prophets to warn them of their not doing Gods will, from Nehemiah all the way to Malachi 2:1 where God says now o priests this commandment is for you. 2:2 If you will not lay it to heart to give glory to my name I will send you a curse. 2:4 you shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you that my covenant might be with Levi saith the Lord of hosts. 2:8 but you have departed out of the way, you have caused many to stumble at the law AND you have corrupted the covenant of Levi. From the beginning God gave the Leviticus covenant and the law of Deuteronomy mankind has perverted the covenant of Levi by considering that Leviticus and Deuteronomy were both laws with punishments. The apostles called this “living by the law” When they crucified Jesus “”The King of Leviticus”” they said “We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.” Man made his own Leviticus law regarding religion attached it to Deuteronomy law with a death sentence in place of free will. God did not make a law to kill his son. It is written Jesus died for our sins. However in many instances in the bible for means because. Jesus died because of the sin of mixing law and religion and not having a separation of law and religion. Jesus knew he was the King of Leviticus law, when he was confronted by religious leaders with the woman caught in adultery (marriage is a religious act) the religious leaders wanted Jesus to use the law of Deuteronomy and kill her, he knew he was the King of Leviticus who sits on the right hand of God the supreme judge of the world so he refused to exercise the law which is Gods authority. Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Mark 1:15 the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: Repent ye, and believe the gospel. If man ever comes to his senses and establishes the temple as a nation and keeps the covenant of separation of law and brings all the tithe to the temple so the hungry have food God says: Bring all of the tithe unto the storehouse that there may be meat in my house, and prove me now saith the lord of hosts if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it. 11. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes. Herein is the so called rapture where we meet Jesus in the clouds/spirit. Jesus once said “the foxes have holes, and the birds have nests; but the son of man has no place to lay his head.” Israel rejected Jesus and the kingdom of God was taken from them. Matthew 21:42-43 Did you never read the scriptures, the stone which the builders rejected the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lords doing and it is marvelous in our eyes. Therefore say I unto you the kingdom of God shall be taken from you and given unto another nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. God has restored the knowledge it is contained in the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution creating a separation of church and state but the wicked one has deceived the whole world and usurped the powers of the church to establish welfare healthcare education in the government of law fulfilling the proverb the dog has returned to his vomit.

  11. Had a crazy adventure with the Lord and was blessed to see many lives touched. Also, the style of this is totally different than any video I've made, taking the viewer on the adventure with us.
  12. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMNMFaBrb9g I was blessed to share some of my testimony of how I came to the Lord as a demonstration of God's love. Many people were touched that night and encountered that same love for themselves.

  14. 9/13/2013 Friday night God was putting the Lloyd center/Holladay park area heavy on our hearts. Before we got there we stopped by a group giving chili and lemonade on a street corner. They were feeding the people and sharing the love of Jesus. Got prayer from them and then got on the max to Lloyd center. At Holliday park, there was a bunch of kids hanging out partying. We’ve encountered a lot of these kids randomly as we’ve been hitting up this area a lot. I asked if anyone would like prayer and one guy stepped up and testified to the group about his hand being healed last week because Dem prayed over him. I prayed over a gut named Mike for peace. Then a girl named Audrey came up asking why we loved Jesus. She couldn’t figure out how we could love someone we couldn’t see. I shared with her my testimony and asked if she would like to experience God. I took her hand and prayed for Gods presence and she started experiencing him. She said that was weird cause she almost started to cry. Then the lord downloaded a lot of stuff about how amazing she is and how God sees her and how He has gifted her. She broke down crying. God loves that girl so much. After that, I started getting words over a girl named Alex. After that, Chris prayed over a guy named Chris who busted his hand in a fight and his hand was healed. Then Chris saw Danny and prayed over her and the Lord revealed to him what she was going through to show her His love. While that was going on, I went to the other benches and started talking to the group. I asked if one guy would like prayer and he said that he hails satan. So I challenged him. I said, how’s this, I’ll let you pray over me in satans name if I could pray over you in Jesus name and lets see what happens. I figured, if he touches me, Holy Spirit is going to get all over him, if I lay hands on him, Holy Spirit was going to get all over him. He said he just says that to offend religious people and was shocked at my response. I started to talk the some more of them. One kid asked if I could pray for his nose. It was hurting from snorting stuff. I prayed a few times, and nothing happened. There was a girl with a pink sweater and pink hair there and I asked if I could pray for her. She said she didn’t believe in God. I told her that she didn’t have to believe for me to bless her so she let me pray and experienced God’s joy and peace. She said she felt happy. The Lord started revealing that she never had religion pushed on her so she nothing against God, she just has never experienced Him, then I saw something’s about her character and her gift in art and she was amazed that God knows so much about her. I shared the Gospel with her and I told her that Jesus is amazing and if she wanted to know him, whenever she wants to invite him in her life. The guy sitting next to her, whose hand got healed last week, asked for prayer for rapping abilities because last week we prayed for endurance and the Lord answered. So I told him only if he wraps for Jesus. He agreed, so As I prayed I saw a white mist land on him and he testified he felt something happen. After that, Dem was talking to Anthony, a guy we kept running into. He skipped out on what he was doing because he knew God was calling him. Chris and I went and prayed over a guy named Cricket over chronic back pain and after a few times praying, the pain left. After that another guy starts walking through and he busted his hand in a fight. We had Alex pray for him so she laid hands on his wrist and prayed. Jesus healed him and he was tripping out. After that, A some other guys and girls showed up and I asked if they would like prayer. One guy said he wasn’t religious and the girl in the pink sweater from earlier said “I think I’m religious now.” One of the girls asked if we were priests or something. Mike came up and I showed him and her some footage we filmed. They both were blown away. Mike said that was proof. He had been praying for God to show Himself or prove that He was real for years, and seeing God’s healing power on a video camera was the proof he needed. He gave his life to the Lord and we prayed over him to be baptized in the Spirit. Right after that, I asked one guy if he had pain in his body and he said his rips. We had Mike pray for him and Jesus healed him through Mike. The guy said the pain left, and started doing sit ups. Then got up and even his friend testified he couldn’t get out of bed this morning because how bad it hurt. Mike started crying because of how good and amazing God is. We spent some time sharing the Word with him and one of his friends came up and asked, if he was going to quit drugs because he was a Christian. He said that he would. We gave him contact info, so he could get ahold of us. That guy is so amazing! After that, Joey came over and we prayed over him because he was going back to Afghanistan. Chris and I both saw the Lord protecting him with big angels. God loves that guy so much. After that, people started to think out and I was having a conversation about Jesus with a guy. Audrey asked if I was against homosexuals. I said, “do I believe it’s wrong, yes.” But made clear it’s not my job to judge according to the flesh but regardless. The group, there was like 4 of them left, started talking about it thinking it would offend us. We prayed for Audrey’s jaw and she kept saying it still hurt, but then had a hard time finding the pain after a few times praying. God is so amazing! He loves these kids so much. He is in pursuit for them. This was one of those nights where God rocked us by seeing His love manifest just as much as some of them got rocked. Thank You Jesus for letting me experience Your love for them, for letting me feel Your love for them. Your amazing Lord! Praise You, thank You Jesus, thank You for Your amazing love! You are worthy Lord, thank You http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbydTWEKriY
