Clean Vs Unclean

Clean Vs Unclean

Here is an interesting videos that I recently came across discussing the Biblical injunction about clean and unclean animals that helps to explain why God declared some animals to be unclean and therefore unfit for His people past and present not to eat.

Jesus Came In Order To Be Able to Take Away Our Sins

Jesus Came In Order To Be Able to Take Away Our Sins

Why do we see3m to get so much Joy out of trampling upon God’s law? Do we ever see in the bible where Jesus did this

trampling the law

to His Law?

We see that He came that

He might free Us from being

John says that

Jesus came to take sin out of our lives

thPSJGUFQW

We are Judged by our keeping or breaking the law of God; by our walking in sin or a walk that allows sin to be removed from our lives. So why would Jesus allow sin to remain in His followers?

not so that we might keep on sinning against Him.

How many of us want to break our Lords heart?

Sin Is Rebellion

Sin Is Rebellion

Rebellion brings about lawlessness. All mankind has rebelled against God and His law.

We, all of us, need to understand this

thK0JV51SE

And while we are under grace

True we are under grace but the grace that we receive in Christ our Lord is what opens the needed power to overcome sin in our lives; then enables us to keep Jesus’ laws.

Pacific Crest Trail – early fall days and blueberry bushes…

What caught my attention in this photo is that narrow path surrounded by red flowers on one side. It is so narrow that only one person can walk it, and it looks like if one were to lose their balance they would be in for a nasty fall down the mountain side.

As I thought about that step drop, it seemed to me that this photo was rather like an illustration of the narrow way. Like that path, the narrow way is lined with red. Not the attractive red of blushing flowers, but the painful crimson stain of His who walked before and gave His all to save us. Just like the path in the picture seems narrow and tight with no safe place to pause or turn about, their is no room on the narrow way to turn to the right or to the left. At times the way climbs steeply up the mountainside, and because the path is so tight if we were to take our eyes off of Jesus, it would be easy for to concentrate more on the danger posed by the sharp drop than our hope of one day reaching a heavenly city where sin and death are no more.

Where Will The Antichrist Come From

Where Will The Antichrist Come From

Just who will be the expected antichrist?

th32PEL3LE

Could it possibly be Bill Clinton?

thBFNFR7H4

Or could it be George Bush?

thVSR9PD7Q

Then there’s most defiantly Obama to rank at the top of the list.

But the way this country is headed surely these two must be placed on that list.

thFKCJJLTW

as bad as some would like to make it so these all fall very shot of meeting the bible definition of being the Mother of Harlots. And as such they could not be that antichrist that the world has been and is looking for.

Anti means according to Webster: to oppose : to be against : Of the same kind but set up to be opposite in policy : hostile in opinion or practice : combating or defending against.

Our way to find out just who fits the bible description for being the antichrist should now have become a clearer.

Jesus is desperately trying to wake his people today. Are you listening?

I found this sermon to be both powerful and thought provoking. The pastor is right when he begins the sermon with the words, we do not live in normal times. If you have any doubt all you have to do is turn on the TV news and in a few seconds it will become crystal clear that something terrible is going on as violence, fear, natural disaster, the loss of love for our fellow humans overflows from the airwaves with startling rapidity. It seems like everyday the world is doing the impossible by sinking lower and lower even though it seems that it must have reached the bottom.

But we were warned that the end would be like this. A fearful mixture of the days of Lot and Noah, a frightful dash of the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah, that would culminate in reenactment of the plain of Dura where once again God’s servants will have to decide to bow the knee and win the praise of man, or stand firm to God and face the modern equivalent of the fiery furnace.

As we see the spiraling world around us, the Spirit of God is speaking to our hearts desperately trying to wake us up to our danger, desperately seeking to wake us up to the fact that the midnight hour is at the door. The clock is only seconds away from striking midnight when the door of mercy will forever close. When Jesus will rise and declare he that has clean hands let him be clean and he that is filthy let him be filthy still.

Oh how fearful to know that so very soon our case will be forever decided. That in a few more weeks, a few more days, maybe even a few more hours, our name will be called. Our case will be brought before the righteous judge.

The Mystery of Lawlessness: The Law of Love

The Mystery of Lawlessness: The Law of Love

thrij0ieem

Way back into the beginnings of time when God’s creations first began it was decided that all moral beings were to have the freedom to serve their Maker or to reject Him. This is where the law of love comes in to play. Our creator does not believe in forced service for anyone. He loves us so deeply that He because of our rebellion against Him that He came and died in order that we might receive a second chance and learn to love Him.

thZ36AWUPT

The cross is the evidence we need to show that the law of love truly works. And if we were to fully take hold of His love  placing it in our hearts and lives we could then fulfill the law of the Ten Commandments executing them in their richest most meaningful way.

The mystery of lawlessness is why rebellion began in the first place. Why did…
