Authorities on the earth are established by people

I have thought about this matter long enough.

In my time on earth I have realized that people can do wrong.

So why would God as sovereign as he is put rulers in charge over people.

If you research the origin of kings then you will see that it was people who wanted one,not God establishing one.

God let it be.

Please read this:

1 Samuel 8:5-7

And said to him, Behold, you are old, and your sons walk not in your ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. 

But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed to the LORD. 

And the LORD said to Samuel, Listen to the voice of the people in all that they say to you: for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

As you can see,God never initiated a earthly king over people.He allowed it.

God is the true King of all the earth:

Psalm 47:7

For God is the King of all the earth: sing you praises with understanding.

We do not have to die

The Church or the Ecclesia has raised us into the belief that we have to die at a certain point and time when that is not true.

Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life.

John 11:23-27

Jesus said to her, Your brother shall rise again. 

Martha said to him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 

Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 

And whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Believe you this? 

She said to him, Yes, Lord: I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

As you can tell Jesus is the resurrection and the life and he that lives and believes in him will not die.

Even with regular rendering of John 11:26

is says:

And whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Believeth you this.

However the original rendering of John 11:26 is not that much different.

Here it is:

And everyone the living and believing in Me,objectively and subjectively never shall die. Believe you this.

To me the belief that we have to die at one point derives from this verse below here which has been mistranslated for too long.

Here is the regular rendering:

Hebrews 9:27

And as it is appointed to men once to die,but after this the judgment:

Here is the original rendering:

Hebrews 9:27

And according to how much and how many it is appointed thee to men once and for all away to die after then this crisis.

The word krisis has been translated into judgment for too long and really translates into English as crisis which means decision.

So basically we have a decision to make after years of living and we should believe in Jesus while living in order to never die and this helps to make the bigger picture clear.

God is the Savior of all people and especially of those who believe:

1 Timothy 4:10

That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.

Here are a few verses showing God’s love towards us which is John 3:16-18

(For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 

He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.)

As you will notice God loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

and God send his only begotten son into this world not to condemn it,but that the world through him might be saved,

yet if we believe not on the only begotten son of God we are condemned already,yet he who believes on the only begotten son of God is not condemned.

Condemned to what?

Condemned to perish

Condemned to die

That’s what.

Jesus death destroyed the power of death which is the devil:

Hebrews 2:14

For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

Jesus manifested so that he might destroy the works of the devil:

1 John 3:8

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

The last enemy to be destroyed is death:

1 Corinthians 15:26

The last enemy to be destroyed is death.

So who wants us to die,enacted and had the power of death?

The devil

Review:

Jesus came to undo the works of the devil which was death and by dying and resurrecting he destroyed the power of death.By believing in Jesus we will never die.

The truth about Satan

I know that he is a touchy subject,yet I wanted to discuss him.

He is not red horned figure with a pointy tail.He is a dragon.

Dragon is a flying ancient creature which has a head and a tail.

We have been deceived into imagining him with arms and legs which he apparently does not have.

The pitch fork is a distortion of the trident which Poseidon had and that is apparently Zeus brother.

A true pitch fork is a tuning fork.

Here are some Bible verses all about him:

As you can tell below is that he is not a person at all,yet society has deceived you into believing that he is:

Revelation 20:2

He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.

See he is deceptive and without arms and legs he thinks that he is a threat to God,just sneaky,yet not so sneaky that he can defeat a vigilant Christian:

2 Corinthians 11:14

And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

The devil probably took him by him riding on him or something and without arms and legs he has really no sense of power but to deceive us or hunt us down to try to devour us,yet Jesus resisted Satan and won as we all must do today:

Matthew 4:5-11

Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 

“If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:

“ ‘He will command his angels concerning you,

and they will lift you up in their hands,

so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”

Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test”

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ ”

Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

Our enemy comes to steal from us,kill our joy and destroy our lives,yet Jesus came that we may have life and have it to the full:

John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

I hope that this clears up any confusion about Satan that he may have placed in your mind about his form and his ways which is of a dragon and totally bad.


To those who cannot see the Invisible

To those who doubt that Jesus is real.

This is for you.

If you could see him,you would not deny his existence.

He is very real for I have seen him with my spiritual eyes.

He is real,yet to them that doubt then he is not.

Maybe one day he will grace them with truth and show himself to their eyes.

They need to read the Bible and learn what it means to see what the human eyes cannot see.

If they knew what Jesus could do for them,then they would believe;

If they could look beyond the norm of the mind,to what is not norm,they would see.

The norm of the mind sees what is physical,yet if Christ relieves them of blindness

then they may say what is not seen.

The way one is spiritually blind is they are born with it

for even I knew not how to see what was invisible.

As a child I saw angels that were above and could not be seen.

To many that is visions,yet I saw them above buildings.

To see the invisible you must learn to see what is not dreams,yet what is really there,

yet to the human eyes never was there.

Still that does not make it or them not there.

They are there,they always were there in the unseen realm.

This is more than Faith for Faith comes by hearing and does hear what is not seen,

yet we must learn to look with the Heart and see by the Heart and view by the Heart

which requires time and discipline.

To the true believers of Christ this is the way to do things.

Still one must live two lives at one time,

One of seeing the physical which we are born to do

and one of seeing the Spiritual which was are learning to do.

What we must do is see what we are born with physically

and learn to see what we are learning to do.

If you were born from above,

then you could know that you could see with new eyes.

Visions is part of the plan,

yet to continually see what is not visible requires more than the human eyes.

Your spiritual eyes is how you see what is invisible.

Everyone born from above can see what is not seen physically.

Meaning what is not matter or physical matter.

While what is Spiritual can include the things that are Spiritual.

There is matter that is physical and matter that is Spiritual.

It requires faith to notice the invisible and patience to see what is invisible.

To see the Absolute which is the totality,you must look to the Spiritual;

while to see the finite which is the partiality,you must look to the physical.

What God is about

If you read the Bible correctly and rightly divide the Word of God

then you will realize just how good God is:

God is Living and is the Savior of all people:

1 Timothy 4:10

That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.

Jesus said When I am lifted up from the earth,will draw all people to myself:

John 12:32

And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”

God will bring about times of refreshment and restore everything:

Acts 3:20

Then times of refreshment will come from the presence of the Lord, and he will again send you Jesus, your appointed Messiah.

Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets.

The religion that God accepts as pure and faultless is to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world:

James 1:27

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

This may take some time to accept,yet God is this good.

Earth Facts according to The Bible

In this post I will discuss the Earth,how long it will stay and what it’s foundations are.

I will look into the Earth being the dry land and I will also look into the seas also.

 

God called the dry land Earth and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas:

Genesis 1:10

And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

 

The Earth stays for ever:

Ecclesiastes 1:4

One generation passes away, and another generation comes: but the earth stays for ever.

 

God set the Earth on its foundations,never to be moved:

Psalm 104:5

He set the earth on its foundations, never to be moved.

 

He founded the Earth upon the seas and established it upon the waters:

Psalm 24:2

For He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.

 

God fixed the Earths boundaries and set in place it’s bars and doors:

Job 38:10

when I fixed its boundaries and set in place its bars and doors,

 

The LORD set the sand as the boundary of the sea,an enduring barrier it cannot cross:

Jeremiah 5:22

Do you not fear Me? declares the LORD. Do you not tremble before Me, the One who set the sand as the boundary of the sea, an enduring barrier it cannot cross? The waves surge, but they cannot prevail. They roar but cannot cross it.

 

God gathers the waters of the sea together as an heap:

Psalm 33:7

He gathers the waters of the sea together as an heap: he lays up the depth in storehouses.

 

Summary:

The Dry Land is the Earth and the gathering together of the waters is the Seas.

The Earth stays forever and it is founded on the seas and established it upon the waters.

The Earth lasts forever.

Jesus described

What Jesus looks like and more about him

will be discussed here.

 

Jesus is white and I will prove that

with a few Bible verses and in other Bible verses I will describe him more.

 

Jesus head and his hairs are white like wool and his eyes are as a flame of fire:

Revelation 1:14

His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

 

Jesus eyes are as a flame of fire and on his head are many crown and he has a name written that no man knew but he himself:

Revelation 19:12

His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

 

Jesus’s name is the Father’s name also and him and his Father are one who he has come to:

John 17:11

I will no longer be in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, protect them by Your name, the name You gave Me, so that they may be one as We are one.

 

Jesus is the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world:

John 1:29

The next day John sees Jesus coming to him, and said, Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world.

 

Jesus is the light of the world and if we follow him,we shall not walk in darkness,but have the light of life:

John 8:12

Then spoke Jesus again to them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

 

He is the Word and that Word is God and he became flesh and dwelled among us:

John 1:1,14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelled among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

 

Jesus was with God in the beginning:

John 1:2

He was with God in the beginning.

 

By Jesus all things were made and without him was not anything made that was made:

John 1:3

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

 

In Jesus is life and that life was the light of me:

John 1:4

In Him was life, and that life was the light of men.

 

 

Summary:

Jesus is white and so is his hair,

He is the Lamb of God,

He is the Light of the World,

He is the Word that is God that became flesh and dwelled among us

and the Life in him is the Light of Men

Jesus is the Beginning

Jesus not only is the Beginning,yet he created everything that is.

 

Now let’s look at these Bible verses about it,

even the Interlinear version of Genesis 1:1

to see the Big Picture.

 

Now’s let’s delve into them to gain insight:

 

Revelation 1:8

“I am the Alpha and the Omega–the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come–the Almighty One.”

 

Genesis 1:1(Interlinear Version)

The Beginning created the Elohim,the humans,the heavens and the earth.

 

John 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

 

John 1:3

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

 

John 1:14

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

 

John 6:46

Not that any man has seen the Father, save he which is of God, he has seen the Father.

 

John 14:7

If you had known me, you should have known my Father also: and from now on you know him, and have seen him.

 

Colossians 1:15

And He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation.

 

 

As you can tell Jesus not only created everything,

yet he is the Word that became Flesh too.

So it is important to acknowledge him to the fullest extent.

 

God is Omnipresent

I have a bunch of Bible verses to prove that God is Omnipresent with us

in every second of every day no matter where we live.

 

Here are those Bible verses:

1 Kings 8:27
But will God indeed dwell on the earth?
behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain you;
how much less this house that I have built?

Job 22:12
Is not God in the height of heaven?
and behold the height of the stars,
how high they are!

Jeremiah 23:24
Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? said the LORD.
Do not I fill heaven and earth? said the LORD.

Acts 7:49
Heaven is my throne,
and earth is my footstool:
what house will you build me?
said the Lord:
or what is the place of my rest?

2 Corinthians 2:6
New International Version (©1984)
But who is able to build a temple for him,
since the heavens,
even the highest heavens,cannot contain him?
Who then am I to build a temple for him,
except as a place to burn sacrifices before him?
(Hosea 6:6
For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice;
and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

Psalm 51:16
For you desire not sacrifice; else would I give it:
you delight not in burnt offering.

1 Samuel 15:22
And Samuel said, Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and
sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than
sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams.)

Psalm 139:7-12
Where shall I go from your spirit?
or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, you are there:
if I make my bed in hell, behold,
you are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall your hand lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light
about me.
Yes, the darkness hides not from you;
but the night shines as the day:
the darkness and the light are both alike
to you.

Genesis 28:16
And Jacob awaked out of his sleep,
and he said,
Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

 

Ain’t that something?

God fills our world from the oceans to the skies.

God fills our world from the depth of the world to the height of the world

 

Wherever We May Go

Wherever We May Go
Composed By
James Henry Shelton

Today is a moment
Which may pass like the stream
A still calm flow of water
Observed under
the hot suns heat
Angels watch over the many
That come and go through
The places of the world
Yet time is on your side
Wherever you may go
For God made us all
Like the grass that grows
And he observes us all
Wherever we may go
