The Worst of Us

Posted by | Tags: | Categories: BLOG: Ministry Director | Comments Off on The Worst of Us

Jesus loves saving the worst of us. The bottom, the wicked, the outcast. Because the world sees us, after the fact, after we have been cleansed, washed, set apart and made holy; they cannot imagine that God wants people who are not good, righteous, and moral. They think, they have to become like we are first. You know the “Christian” image. They just don’t know the beginning of our story.

Jesus loves to save the worst of us. Religious Serial Killers, like Saul of Tarsus. On his way to roundup, haul away and kill more Christians, Jesus stopped him in his tracks. He became one of the leaders of the same group he sought to destroy. Acts 9:1-5

Jesus loves to save the worst of us. Insane, self mutilating, death worshipping, demon possessed people, like the unnamed demonic, who Jesus cast out enough demons to fill 2,000 pigs, drive them insane, causing the pigs to killed themselves. After Jesus, this person was sane, clothed, and ready to be a witness for Jesus Christ, and preached in multiple cities about what Jesus did for him. Mark 5:1-20

Jesus loves to save the worst of us. A Prostitute, with seven devils, doing who knows what with whom, Mary Magdalene. Jesus removes her shame, her demons, transforms her, to be a righteous, holy woman, a disciple of Jesus, and the first to see him resurrected from the dead. Mark 16:9

Jesus loves to save the worst of us. Two traitors, robbing their countrymen with legal exorbitant taxes, imposed by the oppressive conquering nation. Publicans, tax collectors for the Romans. Mathew and Zacchaeus. One after coming to Christ gave away half of what he had and paid 4 fold to everyone he wronged. The other left everything, his wealth, his lifestyle, his comfort and became one of the 12 apostles.

Jesus loves to save the worst of us. A woman, who was an outcast of her society, married 5 times and now living with a man. A woman that knew men very well, and the women of her town wanted nothing to do with her. But after meeting Jesus, she became a light, witness to the very men, who all knew her reputation, and help to change her society. John 4:1-30

Today, Jesus loves to save the worst of us. He saves Imam Muslim priests, and brings them to a living relationship with God the father, through His son Jesus Christ. He saves prostitutes and sends them to bring other women and men out of that lifestyle. He saves drug dealers, drug attics and sets them free from the daily and sometimes hourly HIGH. He saves murders, hitmen, assassins and changes their hard heart to one of compassion. He saves witches, voodoo practitioners, psychics and sets them free from the voices, the power of the dark side, to live in the light of God’s presence.

Jesus saves the rapist, the person committing incest and the ones being victimized. He saves the cutter, the self-mutilator, self destructive, the destroyer, and shows them the love of the Creator, who can make all things new in their lives. He saves the alcoholic and gives them the new wine, that sets them free from the daily, drive to drink the day, the pain away. He saves the hater, be it self hate, or hatred of this group, that race or this family member. He removes the hatred, the unforgiveness, and replaces it with love.

Jesus loves to save the worst of us. And I was one of the worst of us. Daily high, running with gangs, planning a murder on a opposing drug dealer. Setting up ambushes for other gangs. A drug addict using anything I could get my hands on. Jesus saved me, in the middle of my mess.

The problem for the worst of us, is not that Jesus saves the worst of us. But I cannot see myself like you, the saved. The holy. I cannot see how Jesus can change my habits, my cursing mouth, my daily drive for sex, drugs, and violence. I am really good at being bad, and being bad is really easy. I already hate myself, and it is easier to just conclude that I am no good, than to try to be good. Can Jesus really save me?

Yes, Jesus loves to save the worst of us. And His saving power is not dependent upon how bad you are, but how powerful He is. Jesus said, that you cannot make yourself taller, no matter how much you worry, how much you think about it happening. (Mat 6: 27) In the same way, you cannot make yourself better, with your greatest effort. You may appear better to men, but in the book of Romans, 10 chapter it says.

But the righteousness based on faith says, Do not say in your heart, “Who will ascend into heaven?” (that is, to bring Christ down) or “Who will descend into the abyss?” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).

But what does it say? The word is near you, on your lips and in your heart (that is, the word of faith which we preach); because, if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

For man believes with his heart and so is justified, and he confesses with his lips and so is saved.

The scripture says, “No one who believes in him will be put to shame.” ASV

The first part of this scripture states, “Who will ascend into heaven, and bring Christ down?” Can you by your greatest efforts, best feats, most noble achievements reach to heaven and force him to come down? Then the verse goes on, “can you descended into the grave” and by your ability bring Jesus back up from the dead?

This is the condition of mankind, we are powerless to do what is needed to save ourselves. We cannot by our effort, by our strength, save ourselves. It is only by the effort, the strength of God. And the worst of us, to often get caught in the effort trap, trying to do it by ourselves, with our own strength, failing time and again. It is not up to you. You cannot do it. We cannot do it.

The next part of the verse is the other problem for the worst of us. It just cannot be that easy. It says that the word of salvation, the words of freedom, are not somewhere in my distant future, over the next hill, or just outside of arms reach. But my freedom, my salvation is so close, that if I reach out with my mouth, and my heart, it is mine. That I don’t have to become a holy man or woman first, but if I confess with my lips Jesus, and believe in my heart that God raised him from the dead for my sins. For my salvation, if I really accept, believe and received what Jesus did for me, I will be saved. Not just saved, but no longer ashamed.

Here is why it is so easy. Because God did the hard part. He did what you could not do, he brought Jesus down from heaven to live a perfect life, to die as your sacrifice, for your sins. And to be raised from the dead, proving that the sacrifice was accepted. You, I could not do that. Now, think about the power of God, that kept Jesus from sin, all forms of sin, for his 33 years on earth. The bible says he was tempted in all points as we are, and yet without sin. (Heb 5:15) And the devil knew he was here, and threw everything at him. This is the power, that God will give you, if you truly believe.

Then God had Jesus be our sacrifice for all of our sins. And he endured the judgement of God on himself, so you would not have to receive that same judgement. This is the freedom from sin, from judgement that Jesus has provided for you, if you truly believe.

Next Jesus was raised from the dead. The bible says, that God the father raised him from the dead (1 Cor 6:14), Jesus said, that he would raise himself from the dead. (John 2:9) And the bible says that the Holy Spirit raised him from the dead. (Rm 8:11) All of the Godhead, the Trinity was active, in the resurrection of Jesus. All of God will be present in your transformation, your salvation as God changes you from the inside out, if you truly believe. (1 Peter 1:3)

The bible says that Jesus is alive forevermore, and makes intercession, prayers and defense on your behalf, before God’s judgement throne.

Heb 7: 25 Wherefore also he is able to save to the uttermost them that draw near unto God through him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

God’s power and attention is yours to support you as begin your walk, and relationship with Jesus, he can save you thoroughly, completely, if you truly believe.

If you truly believe, means that you believe to the point of doing something about it. If you just thought that this building was on fire, you might investigate. But if you truly believed it was on fire, you would be getting out, as fast as you can, and taking your loved ones, and prized possessions with you. If you simply think what Jesus did was great, but do nothing about it. Then you don’t truly believe, you just thought about it, like gravity or air, OK it is there, but so what. Thinking about it, does not change anything.

But if you truly believe, to the point of doing something about it; to reflect, to repent, to accept, to submit, to obey, this Jesus who bought you with his own blood, died in your place, and extends His love and power for you to live forever, free from sin, death and judgement. Then you will receive this salvation, and you will be changed from the inside out. We call it being born again. It is when the power of God, meets your heart, when Jesus comes inside, and makes your dead spirit alive to God. Jesus said it is a requirement to see, enter and experience the kingdom of heaven. (John 3: 3-5) It gives you access to God in prayer, praise and understanding. It gives you freedom to resist the sins that so easily overwhelm you. It gives you vision to see, what is really happening around you. And it gives you an inner helper, the Holy Spirit, the comforter, to guide you, in your daily walk with God.

The bible has an interesting verse in Matthew 5, “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted”.

Why do we mourn? There is outward mourning and inward mourning. We mourn because of our pain, suffering, wrongs done, loss of things, or loss of life. What others have done to us, what we lost, what we felt. That is outward mourning, caused by the actions of others. Some of us mourn because of what we have done to others, what we have done to ourselves, what we have destroyed, cursed, mutilated and killed. That is inward mourning, pointed in because of our actions, not the actions of others.

Ultimately all mourning is because of sin, sins we have done, or sins against us. Even death and sickness are the result of sin in this world. Jesus came to destroy the works, the results and the legacy of sin, in your life, in my life. He said, Blessed are they that mourn, for they SHALL be comforted.

Allow Jesus to save you, to comfort you, he loves to save the worst of us. Let him save you now.

Commentaries, Translations, Bibles and the Word of God

Posted by | Tags: , , , | Categories: BLOG: Ministry Director | Comments Off on Commentaries, Translations, Bibles and the Word of God

hands-bible-croppedThis is for all my friends sending out messages with the Message Bible, Living Translation, this poetic bible or that paraphrase. The word of God has 3 important scriptures that we must all keep in mind.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Tim 2:15 (King James Version)

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Matt 4:4 (American Standard Version)

For, verily I say to you, till that the heaven and the earth may pass away, one iota or one tittle may not pass away from the law, till that all may come to pass.
Matt 5:18 (Youngs Literal Version)

In the statement of faith of most of our churches, there is something like this “we believe the Holy scriptures, the bible to be the Word of God, and are without error in their original manuscripts.”

Paul said, we must correctly divide, and understand the word of truth, Jesus said every word expressed by God is what is needed to live. And again Jesus said, the Old Testament Law (“law”, common term used at that time to refer to the first 5 books of the bible) would not lose even one dot of an letter I, or cross of a letter T. That is how important God’s word is.

It is “in style” to use a lot of modern translations, sometimes for study, to add clarity to the word, or to help with a hard passage. But it is also big business to come out with a new exciting bible version. Each one is copyright protected, and has to say the verses in a different way, than did another version. These paraphrases of the bible are basically commentaries, without letting us know they are commentaries. For those who do not know what a commentary is, it is a bible study tool that interprets the scriptures for you, based upon extensive study, history, archeology, anthropology, but finally the opinion of the author.

These paraphrased, easy to read bibles provide the writers interpretation of the scriptures, not necessarily what the scriptures in the original language stated. That is is the problem. To many of us, are not studying any more, but are using these (commentary) bibles to spoon feed us, reading what sounds good, but is not what the original scriptures state, and is not the Word of God.

If Eve messed up by adding “touch not” to God’s commands in the Garden. And the devil removing a few words from “…He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.” in order to deceive Jesus. Why do we think saying God’s word in a different way, than what He originally said, is a good idea?

This is the devils move again, He wants the modern church to depend upon, and read inaccurate paraphrases of God’s Word. These are not the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. But instead paper swords that will fail in battle, and not stand in time of testing. They open us up for misinterpretations and worse, wrong doctrines, based upon something God never said in the original language. Greek and Hebrew are wonderful languages, very accurate, and have a much fuller, detailed range of expression, than English does. I am not telling to that you cannot understand God’s word if you do not read ancient Greek or Hebrew. But I am saying that we cannot depend upon weak or even worse, wrong translations of God’s Word. Please use only accurate translations, there a number of goods ones today.

I leave you with these two warnings from scripture.

But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Matt 15:19 KJV

And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Rev 22: 19 KJV

If you disagree, remember we are in the last days, our only weapon in the Armor of God, is the Sword of the Spirit. Of course the enemy wants to remove it from our hand, without our our knowing we now have a paper sword instead.

(versions used, KJV, ASV, YLT)

Dear Mr. Atheist, the Bible is a Wonder…

Posted by | Tags: , , | Categories: BLOG: Ministry Director | Comments Off on Dear Mr. Atheist, the Bible is a Wonder…

The bible is a wonder. It is the most accurate ancient historical book in the world. It speaks of scientific insight and reveals details of astronomy, chemistry, archeology, geology, physics, botany, biology, before any of these modern sciences existed. It has more prophecy that any other “holy” book in the world. Including hundreds of fulfilled […]

Imagination

Posted by | Tags: , | Categories: BLOG: Ministry Director | Comments Off on Imagination

Mathew 5:28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. In these words of Jesus, we commit the sin of adultery, not when we look at a woman, but when we engage our imagination, and allow our lust to be activated. This […]
