GOD'S VIEW

 

God's view is quite simple! He wants us to believe in Jesus of Nazareth (God in human form, Messiah, Christ) to be God and that He died for our sins (Jn 3:16). That we only have to say to Him, we are sorry in our heart, for our past sins and admit that we are incapable of keeping His commandments, without His help! By saying, this and meaning it, He places His Holy Spirit into us for now and forever (so much for being able to lose your salvation), which will guide us (Jn 14:26) and teach us about His Will for us, while on this planet! Or to use today's vernacular of computers, when you repent and ask for God's Help, He downloads the program, Holy Spirit 1.0 into you to act as a universal Google program, where you have real access to all of God's Will for you! This is not full of fleshly knowledge as with the earthly Google service but spiritual knowledge!

You see we cannot do one, not one, righteous act on our own, or through what The Word (The Bible) calls the flesh, because since Adam and Eve, we have fallen natures, only capable of satisfying our wants, pretty much like animals. Jesus (God) knows our needs and is the only One capable of instructing us in our walk (Eph 2:10).

He is the only One who knows everyone else's needs, also. The only one! (1 Cor 2:11). No one else, not Mary or some saint (anyone who accepts Jesus is a saint, (Phil. 1:1) knows the thoughts or needs of each one of us. Consequently, we cannot even give to the poor or needy without the guiding of the Holy Spirit, because He only knows where they are at in their walk and whether they are being chastened, instructed, or placed in those conditions to show that they can love Jesus and do His work anyway! This is especially true in today's world, full of con artists. I worked in a christian food kitchen and the leader warned us against giving to beggars on the street, but instead directing them to the mission, because he had seen too many of them take the money and buy alcohol or drugs.

The Lord gave me the following analogy (I think or it might have been the pizza I had) of what it is to be a christian in today's world. We are like an automobile. The driver is the Holy Spirit (HS). Until we let the HS get into us, we either cannot move or if we start rolling we cannot steer ourselves and we wreck! And once the HS begins driving us He begins doing the Father's Work. He might drive and pick up someone and take them to the Father's house, where they learn the gospel and become part of the kingdom of God. Unfortunately, we (as the car) want to brag about what has happened, when we had nothing to do with it but that we let the HS do the driving and we were just there. The HS might turn on the radio and beautiful music might come out or someone speaking very knowledgeable things, even spiritual things! And what do we do, like the car, try to take credit for it, while it was totally the HS's work. We are so weak that we cannot be trusted to do anything but submit. No other religion gives you this power. They expect you to drive yourself (the car) someway. As we begin to realize that the HS is doing the work it is actually evidence that we have the HS inside of us. See the discussion later where I note some indicators of how you know you have been "saved," have the HS inside!

So you can call God's people Christians (Christo is greek for Christ or Messiah), if you wish, but we have no religion (depicted as fields in the Bible, (Gen. 37:15). Religions are man-made consisting of rituals, ways of eating, celebrating and they mean nothing to God unless He is directing our actions, through the Holy Spirit. Barry Minkow (born again Jew), was the youngest person to take a company public in American financial history, stated, "religion is for someone who is afraid of going to Hell, whereas, spirituality is for someone who has already been to Hell"! Go to his church, Sandiego Community Bible to learn about his ministry! We have a personal relationship with The Almightly God.  You see, this is unique to all religions. No other religion gives you this power! You are expected to do it on your own, being judged and evaluated all of the time. You never know if you are pleasing your god or doing what he wants. Mohammed, Budda, Hari Krisna, Gaia, or any other gods cannot provide this to you. They cannot, because they are just idols. We all have our Idols, which is in a sense "a god", because it keeps us from worshipping the true God, fully. The Greeks were more up front about their gods, that they worshipped, and called them by name. We are more subtle and call our god something we do to "relieve stress" or "relax."  And why does God give us this priviledge to enter into eternity with Him?  Is it because how moral we are?  Is it because we help others?  No!  It is because He wants to give it to us unconditionally.  He paid for our sins on the cross and suffered more hardships than we will ever face, in human form, so He could fully relate to us. As my former Pastor said, "grace is like being stopped by a policeman for speeding and instead of giving you the ticket you deserve, he instead gives you a cash prize."  Many of us would respond to the policeman in a positive way because of his grace to us.  Once we understand God's grace we want to respond to His unconditional love to us.  And not only does He give us the free gift of grace but He puts His Holy Spirit into us to guide and prompt us as time passes and hardships come or we forget about His gift.  Also, we get to spend eternity with Him exploring His infinitely large universe. Click on the following to learn more about how large and interesting His Universe is. Again, no other God does this for its subjects.  Ours is the one and only true God!! If you want to know if you have the Holy Spirit residing in you, go here for more information! Use the following great free resource, the Blue Letter Bible, to verify my scripture references! Verify what I or anyone else says about the Bible (WORD) for yourself! You can't use us or a priest or pastor or other religious figure for an excuse on judgement day. You are willing to spend all kind of time researching an investment or where to get your car worked on but are you willing to invest time in possibly the most important decision you will ever make - eternity?

Once you have the Holy Spirit in you, you need to know how to follow God's unique Will just for you! Here is a great teaching by John MacArthur on how to help you determine that:



Why does God allow troubles into our lives? This is probably the number 1 question people seem to have! The following is a great commentary on why God permits disasters or problems to enter into our life:

"What is God telling you with the problems He permits in your life?

The problems you face will either defeat you or develop you depending on how you respond to them. Unfortunately most people fail to see how God wants to use problems for good in their lives. They react foolishly and resent their problems rather than pausing to consider what benefit they might bring.

Here are five ways God wants to use the problems in your life:

God uses problems to DIRECT you. Sometimes God must light a fire under you to get you moving. Problems often point us in a new direction and motivate us to change. Is God trying to get your attention? "Sometimes it takes a painful situation to make us change our ways." Proverbs 20:30 (GN)

God uses problems to INSPECT you. People are like tea bags. If you want to know what's inside them, just drop them into hot water! Has God ever tested your faith with a problem? What do problems reveal about you? "When you have many kinds of troubles, you should be full of joy, because you know that these troubles test your faith, and this will give you patience." James 1:2-3 (NCV)

God uses problems to CORRECT you. Some lessons we learn only through pain and failure. It's likely that as a child your parents told you not to touch a hot stove. But you probably learned by being burned. Sometimes we only learn the value of something, health, money and a relationship. By losing it. "It was the best thing that could have happened to me, for it taught me to pay attention to your laws." Psalm 119:71-72 (LB)

God uses problems to PROTECT you. A problem can be a blessing in disguise if it prevents you from being harmed by something more serious. Last year a friend was fired for refusing to do something unethical that his boss had asked him to do. His unemployment was a problem - but it saved him from being convicted and sent to prison a year later when management's actions were eventually discovered. "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good." Genesis 50:20 (NIV)

God uses problems to PERFECT you. Problems, when responded to correctly, are character builders. God is far more interested in your character than your comfort. Your relationship to God and your character are the only two things you're going to take with you into eternity. "We can rejoice when we run into problems they help us learn to be patient. And patience develops strength of Character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it; until finally our hope and faith are Strong and steady." Romans 5:3-4 (LB)

Here's the point: God is at work in your life-even when you do not recognize it or understand it. But it's much easier and profitable when you cooperate with Him. Print this out and read this regularly. Some of you could probably use this right now!'

These are excellent points about trials in this life! And to help put this in perspective try to realize that our goal here is Heaven with our real Father Who will take care of us for ever in the way that is appropriate for us! Life on this earth is a form of Hell where everyone is interested solely in themselves or a small circle of relatives and friends around them and this justifies all sorts of perverse actions, in their minds, to propagate this relationship! The ultimate challenge for us earth dwellers is the death of loved ones or friends! However, the irony of this is that we are so shallow that we don't realize that, if the individual is a believer and saved as we Christians term it, they will be immediately sent to Heaven! If we asked them if they wanted to return they would say NO because they now understand their purpose and everyone else's and thus have NO desire to return to this Hell on earth! I know this is mind blowing but we should celebrate where they are and although we will miss them them, they are better off and for some reason God has chosen to expedite their journey! We should rejoice in those who pass on! I have a saying that we will all enter Heaven with an embarrassed look on our face because we will finally realize that we are where we have always wanted and needed to be and we will have NO desire to go back!!!! This all has to do with "being in the world and not of it" because as we look at things as the world does, we can't help but keep trying to find Heaven here on earth, as the nonbeliever does, and no matter how many things or relationships or friends or whatever we search for, we will not be truly happy for any length of time!!!

GOD'S TEMPLE

The orthodox jews, whom I love dearly and we should support and pray for continuously, have their own idol and it is the WAILING WALL, pictured to the left, which some claim is part of the foundation wall of the original temple, in Jerusalem. Romans 11:25 tells us that, (God has allowed) "a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in;". Many, including myself, believe that once the rapture occurs, God will completely remove this hardening and many Jews will become believers in Jesus during a time called Trials and Tribulations! This is why God is bringing Jews back to Israel and preparing them for this final event. He speaks of this in the Old Testament in Ezekiel 37 using an analogy of dry bones being put back together! Go here for an excellent study on this!

We have an interesting passage in the bible where satan asks God for Moses' body, to which He refuses and sends Michael the archangel to contend with him (Jude 9). I believe satan knew that the jews would have made a shrine out of it and worshipped it as an idol instead of the true God. It is said by Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, CA, that "God probably will not let the jews or us find even the original manuscripts of the bible (we only have copies) because we would worship them and make shrines out of them." How can we know that these copies of manuscripts, upon which our faith is based is true.  As Luke, a Doctor by profession, tells us in his first chapter, as he writes to Theophilus, "Inasmuch as many have taken in hand to set in order a narrative of those things which have been fulfilled among us, just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the Word delivered them to us, it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to you an orderly account, most excellent Theophilus, that you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed."  For those of you who want more to defend the faith of which you speak go to Bible Authenticity All pagan religions of the world have shrines that its followers must visit and kiss or bow down to sometime in their lives. Anything that keeps us from worshipping the true God is an idol, which we are to "flee from." This can be money, sports, friends, spouses, movies, books, children, relatives, food, sex, exercise, clothes, shopping, hobbies of any kind, and just things and stuff in general. Get the picture, anything that keeps us from reading the bible, praying, and fellowshipping with other believers, is a god. These are ways in which God speaks to us and the more we spend time with our other gods the less we will hear from the true God, who has a plan for us. The only lasting joy we will have on this earth is when we are fullfilling God's plan for us. We have a vested interest in being and staying close to God. If we are in Him, He will be in us (1Jn. 3:24)! Go here for more information on God's Temple and how the Jews are preparing to rebuild it in preparation for the Lord's return!

OLD TESTAMENT PROPHECIES

Another thing unique to the real God is that He can tell you what will happen from the beginning to the end through prophecy. His Word is the only book that makes predictions of future events that come true 100% of the time (Isa. 46:10). In the Old Testament (OT), if a prophet was not 100% accurate in his prediction, the punishment was stoning! Think of the alledged prophets, fortune tellers, psychics in today's world. If they were held to these standards, they would not be around. They can get guidance from demons (fallen angels) or just be very perceptive, or just lucky, but they, or their demons, cannot tell the future. The following is a good summary of predictions made by God, about Jesus' coming, which were all made prior to the event and are documented by others, the religious jews, and secular jews throughout history. This is provided to you by Dr. Bruce Foster at bfoster@rocketmail.com:

"There are at least 300 prophecies that deal with Jesus as the Messiah, all written at least 400 years before He came. Liberal scholars denied these prophecies, claiming that the Bible record was inaccurate or that it could have been changed or rewritten. However, the Dead Sea Scrolls silenced the critics when a complete Book of ONE Isaiah (Matthew 15, Luke 4) was found without one single change or discrepancy! This amazing Book of Isaiah predicted that the Messiah would (1) be virgin born (7:14), (2) have a forerunner--John the Baptist (40:3-5), (3) be worshipped by wise men with gifts (60:3), (4) be called a Nazarene (11:1), (5) be filled with God's Spirit (11:2), (6) be a minister to the Gentiles (9:1-2; 42:1-3), (7) be a healer of multitudes (51:4), (8) speak in parables (6:9-10), (9) His miracles would not be believed (53:10), (10) be rejected by His own nation (53:3), (11) be scourged and spit upon (50:6), (12) be crucified between two thieves (53:12), (13) be buried with the rich (53:9), and (14) be given the eternal throne of David(6-7)."

The odds of 300 such prophecies being fullfilled have been calculated to be equivalent to the following analogy: If you filled the State of Texas with silver dollars, 2 feet thick in depth, and put a paint mark on one of them and randomly put it back in the pile. And then blindfolded a person, spun them around and then let them wander across the State and then have them reach down and pick one up. The odds of them grabbing the marked one would be equal to fullfilling 300 prophecies in the Bible. Is there any question that only God can orchestrate these kind of events. We must realize that He operates outside of the dimension of time and in a sense, has a video tape of future events or even several videos of alternative scenarios, that He can visualize and implement as He sees fit!!! Here is a great site that tabulates by type of prophecy, etc. all 300 or so, Prophecy Index .

These prophecies about Jesus are examples of past prophecy. The bible has as much to say about the future for us, also. I believe our desire to know, not only God's current plan for us, but His future plan for us is a measure of our spiritual maturity! Looking for His appearing shows a desire to be with Him and the depth of our love for Him. John takes this concept even further to show us that those that have this hope of His appearing , will purify himself, just as Jesus is pure (1Jn. 3:2)! Go to MATTHEW 24 for a discussion of the future by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse.

THE TABERNACLE

Jesus came to earth as a man, but at the same time as God. He came in a tent which represents our flesh. "He dwelt (tabernacled) with us" (Jn. 1:14). The tabernacle was literally a tent, which the jews carried with them during the exodus, as a place where God would descend in to their presence. It was a temporary dwelling for God as the flesh of Jesus was for God. John 1:14 - "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt (grk-skenoo) among us........ The greek "skenoo" is a derivative of "skenos" which means tabernacle. Jesus is a type of tabernacle, temporary dwelling or temple as our bodies are, also temporary temples of the Holy Spirit. The tabernacle, carried in the desert of Egypt was a temporary housing (temple) of God. Go to Tabernacle or click on the picture of the tabernacle below for more intriguing information about this structure and what it probably looked like to Satan as he looked down from the air, at the jewish encampment around it, in the desert. Jesus referred to Himself as the temple. That all said, I have read that it is a jewish custom to use an expression such as "He tabernacled with us" to mean that is the festival on which He was born. Maybe our jewish scholars can help me on this one? The Feast of Tabernacles is about booths, temporary dwellings, etc. I have heard it proposed that Jesus was on the Mt. of Transfiguration on His birhday or Feast of Tabernacles and that is part of the reason He was being visited. This is somewhat corroborated by the fact that Peter wanted to build temporary dwellings during the episode. Now, if all of this is true, one has to pick the year Jesus was born 3 or 4 BC, 0 AD, or whatever you believe, and then determine the date of the Feast of Tabernacles and that would be His birthday, probably the Fall of the year.

For additional documentation from Shofar Ministries: "Also called the feast of booths, the feast of incoming (ingathering, when all the fruits are gathered in)and the feast of lights( not to be confused with Chanukah, the lesser feast of lights), this seven day feast began on the fifthteenth day of the seventh month, the month of Tishri 15-21, and commemorates life in the wilderness God's provision and there temporary dwellings in the wilderness. For Christians, this day commemorates the birth of YESHUA. YESHUA the "LIGHT OF THE WORLD,WHO CAME AND TABERNACLED AMONG US."(John1:14) It is interesting to note that the Feast of Lesser Lights or of DEDICATION (Chanuka) occures nine months before on Kislev 25 The'INCARNATION'. Yeshua's birth at the time of The Feast of Tabernacles can easily be documented."

See the picture of the tabernacle (below), set up for worship and the sacrificing of sheep and goats (Jesus the Lamb). Click on the picture for a more detailed study of the tabernacle.

tabnernacle1.jpg (23672 bytes)

The jews carried this tabernacle (tent) with them wherever they wondered. The "yellow" cloud is the glory of God transcending into the "holy of holies" where a priest would go once per year on Yom Kippur (fall of the year) to sacrifice a lamb for the jew's past year's sins. The priest had to be ritually purified and only he was allowed to enter. A rope was tied around his leg, in case God "smote" him for not being righteous enough, so they could drag him out without entering the room.

Now that Jesus has come, God in the form of the Holy Spirit has been placed into the believer's body (tabernacle) to guide him. When Jesus was crucified on Passover, a lamb was also being sacrificed in the temple.  Also, the 30 ft. veil that covered the opening to the "holy of holies" split from top to bottom, showing that it was no longer necessary for a priest to intercede for us. We can go directly into the "holy of holies" to God ourselves, through the Holy Spirit. WE DO NOT NEED A PRIEST TO ABSOLVE OUR SINS, ANY LONGER!!!!(Heb. 10:19) Jesus used the Holy Spirit to guide Him, also. He emptied Himself of His Divine nature so He could truly experience every temptation that we have or ever will. By totally and constantly communing with the Holy Spirit, He knew the Father's Will (His God-self) for Him every step of the way. Through this communion He was empowered to not sin and resist temptation. He was the perfect example of how, through the empowering of the Holy Spirit, we can resist temptation. As long as we are on this earth, we will only partially be successful. He arose, three days later, after Passover, on the jewish festival of "First Fruits", because He was the true First Fruits! He did not rise on Easter, a pagan holiday worshipping the god of sex or fertility, Ashtorah or I(E)shtar(with all of her bunny rabbits)! If we want to celebrate His resurrection, we should do it 3 days after Passover! Why were these festival and feast days changed. Constantine I, gives us a clue when he said, "It was declared to be particularly unworthy for this, the holiest of all festivals, to follow the custom[the calculation] of the Jews, who had soiled their hands with the most fearful of crimes, and whose minds were blinded. In rejecting their custom,(1) we may transmit to our descendants the legitimate mode of celebrating Easter, which we have observed from the time of the Saviour's Passion to the present day[according to the day of the week]. We ought not, therefore, to have anything in common with the Jews, for the Saviour has shown us another way; our worship follows a more legitimate and more convenient course(the order of the days of the week); and consequently, in unanimously adopting this mode, we desire, dearest brethren, to separate ourselves from the detestable company of the Jews, for it is truly shameful for us to hear them boast that without their direction we could not keep this feast. How can they be in the right, they who, after the death of the Saviour, have no longer been led by reason but by wild violence, as their delusion may urge them?" Antisemitism has prompted the "alledged" church to try to wipe the knowledge of Jesus' judaism from the record! The following site contains the works of Alexander Hislop which give one information on all of the pagan holidays that christians have adopted as we have become part of the world. Here is another good article on Easter from World Net Daily at . The following site has an interesting Poem about what we will celebrate during the Millennium.

No other god has lowered himself like our God. Pagan god's have not done this, because they are not real and do not care about their worshippers. Jesus' has "walked a mile" in our shoes! Matter of fact, He has walked a lot further in pain than any of us will, ever! What a God who really can identify with us! Through prayer, reading The Word (bible), and meeting with (fellowshipping) other believers, the Holy Spirit gives us power over sin as we are ready for it. We are so weak in the flesh, that if the Holy Spirit gives us too much control, too soon, we will be "puffed up" by it and lose our humility, which is a true indicator of christian maturity. Any pride will keep us out of God's presence. Only God knows our needs. We only know our wants, like a child who will eat candy just before a meal, not having the maturity to know this will "spoil" his appetite and keep him from eating the quality food. We are like children going through the "terrible two's" to God, most of the time! Those of you who are parents can really relate to this! If you learn only one thing from my long diatribe, it is this, I hope! We are incapable of one righteous act in our flesh! Only the Holy Spirit can show how to do any righteous act. Only He knows the thoughts of others and even us (Lk 16:15). He knows our motives in any thing we do, before we even know them. No other religion gives this ability to its believers. This is why to follow Jesus, you can truly make a difference! And remember, it is not you making the difference it is God (Eph 2:10)! By letting Him work through you (submitting is our only work that counts) you will find the only lasting joy available while on this earth. If you do not, you will flounder your whole life, from one job to another, one relationship to another, one drug or shopping spree or food or sporting contest or anything elsed to another, while trying to find true meaning in life. Take the easy path which is narrow (empowered by the Holy Spirit Who wants to do all of the work) for the other path is wide and most will follow it and spend eternity where they want, separated from God. Pray daily (1Thes 5:17, Lk 18:1). Read the Word (Bible) daily (Acts 17:11, Ps 1:2). Witness for Jesus daily (Acts 5). Confess your faith in Jesus daily and be baptized (Mt 10:32, Acts 2:38). Attend Church where Jesus is taught from sound historic Christian doctrine (Heb 10:25). Keep Jesus' commandments (Jn 14:15). If you can't find a church where you get at least 45 min. of the Word on at least Sundays or you don't like the "topical" style of most churches and would like verse by verse teaching of the Word from beginning to end, try a Calvary Chapel located nation-wide by clicking on Map
