Sermon 142 – BLOOD for BLOOD

It’s not nice news, but it’s true

The Lord has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood touches blood. Therefore, shall the land mourn, and everyone that dwells therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea shall also be taken away …. Hosea 4:1-3

Seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget your children v.6

As they were increased, so they sinned against Me: therefore, will I change their glory into shame v.7

They shall eat and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the Lord v.10

Climate Change

The land is defiled, for blood defiles the land; and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed, but by the blood of him that shed it (Numbers 35:33). Therefore, it will spew you out … Leviticus 20:22

Adultery, incest, divorce, remarriage to your ex-spouse, prostitution, abortions, murder, homosexuality, beastiality, the worship of foreign gods, tattoos, sabbath abuse, disrespect of authority, domestic violence, deliberate shaving of the head, body pins, sex-change operations, and clairvoyances … these are all blood crimes … Leviticus 18,19,20

When you legalise these evils, you call evil good and defy and mock the living God and defile His blood. The consequences are the shedding of more blood to counteract the spillage.

For the sake of planet earth, the principle of the kingdom of God is that blood has to be shed to counteract the spilling of blood. It’s man sin that causes wars, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and murders, and it’s also man’s way of forcing God to save the planet in payment for its sin.

Climate change is due to sin. If you want to stop the decay of the planet, stop your sin. If you want to save the animals, stop your sin.

The salt has lost its saltiness

The church is supposed to be the salt against the bacterial infection of the world’s sin. But, the church is full of sexual perversion, adultery, divorce, lies and pretence, disrespect and deception, and merchandising its wares for the purpose of wealth and lustful gain, all covered in goodness. The world rules the church, not the Spirit of God.

If my people who are called by My name shall humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).

The New is in the Old concealed, the Old is in the New revealed

You can argue that it’s all Old Testament, but that’s a convenient lie. Have a look at the decay around you. My God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is immutable, and so is His law (Matthew 5:18). The church is responsible to address its sin and change its ways, first, before it can expect the world to do it.

The life of the body is in the blood

The blood is the pathway for nutrients, the mechanism for fighting disease, the mechanism for clotting and repair, the mechanism for our heart to pump, the mechanism for our breathing. No blood, no life.

It’s the same in the spirit kingdom. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission for sin. No blood, no life. It’s only through repentance and being washed by the blood of Christ shall we ever be able to enter heaven. Both Peter, Paul and John the Baptist preached the gospel of repentance for the remission of one’s sin. Salvation is not by my goodness, but His mercy.

The purpose of calvary was the blood of Christ to cover our sin. Circumcision, communion (Matthew 26:28) and menstruation are blood symbols. By society’s mocking and devaluing the sacrifice of Christ and by silently allowing our parliaments and society to legalise evil, we are promoting the decay of the planet, and casting dispersion on the blood of Christ. There’s a price to pay.

As in the days of Noah (Matthew 24:38)

The purpose of the flood was to save the planet by the removal of its sin. The purpose of Sodom and Gomorrah, and Pompeii, was to remove sin to save the planet with blood. Sadly, God predicts that we are returning to the days of Noah, and few if any will listen. Eventually, this planet will disintegrate under the weight of its sin. Only faith in the living God will save you.

Bad Coagulation

If you mix the wrong blood types, they’ll react against each other and kill you. If you mix the blood of Christ with the world you’ll die, spiritually. Sadly, the church has contaminated itself with the world’s blood. It’s lost its power and strength and is decaying with compromise before our eyes. Congregationalists, Methodists and some Presbyterians have disappeared into a humanistic religion of the Uniting Church which condones the evils of divorce, homosexuality and female priests (1 Timothy 2:11-14).

I’m think I’m good, or at least, not that bad

Everybody wants good news for themselves; they don’t want to feel bad. They expect that if you’re good you get good. Our motive for good is really so we don’t get into trouble, and so we get good back. Most people, including Christians, believe they’re good, so God will be favourable to me. Most believe that God is a good God and only punishes the bad. They blame mother nature for the planet’s disasters, and consider their own personal safety is the consequences of their own goodness. Everything’s fine until things go wrong, and then they blame God for not giving them good for their goodness. This is the religion of Santa Clause.

The truth is, only God is good, so if you think you are good, then you can’t be saved. The truth is, God rules by law, and breakage of his laws requires judgment. His mercy is initiated by your repentance, not by your goodness.

No one thinks envy, judgment or covetousness is bad. Besides, everyone practices it. Jesus is coming back for those who know they’re bad and are willing to repent of their sin. Esau was good, Jacob was bad. Daniel was good, but Samson was bad; they both were saved. The thief on the cross was bad. Rahab was bad. The Pharisees were good, but the blood of the prophets was their curse (Matthew 23:35). Peter wasn’t good, Nebuchadnezzar was bad. It’s not good or bad, it’s the blood of Christ; that’s the issue.

Authority Respect

Most Christians and the world argue that they’re good, but that’s not the argument.  You can cover your coveting, lying, judgmental and adulterous secret thoughts with good, but if you pretend you’re good, instead of owning your sin, you are calling sin good, and that’s evil.

The real argument is … are you resistant to authority? Are you correctable? Everything comes down to authority. You can be as good as you like but if your heart believes … “you won’t tell me what to do”, “you won’t tell me I’m wrong”, then you’re resistant, incorrectable, and thus under the influence of Satan, and thus bad.

The real measurement of good, is … do you resist authority to defend your selfishness?

Bad = the spirit of Satan influences you

Good = the Spirit of God influences you

The problem is, you can be bad and be influenced to do good e.g. King Saul. Ultimately, like King Saul, the good will fade when its measured against resistance to righteous authority. Be as good as you like, but that doesn’t mean you’re covered by the blood of Christ.

Consequences for resisting the will of God

Eventually, any nation that willing turns its back on the living God and pollutes its land with blood, will be given into the hands of the heathen; and they that hated them will rule over them (Psalm 106:38,41). China is coming.

Like Israel in Egypt, if a nation won’t bow the knee to God’s authority, then it forces God to put it under ungodly authority until it will bow to the true God. If you’re spirit resists Godly authority, then don’t lie to yourself that you’re under authority and good.

Don’t wait for the world to change its way; you change your ways to the will of God.

 

May we live our lives in gratitude for the shed blood of Jesus Christ, letting Him be the potter, and not in our goodness expecting God’s blessings and telling Him how He should mould us.

Sermon 140 – My Feelings are My Law

Modern society and church believe that God is a god of unconditional love and not judgement, except against those who are bad. As long as you’re good, God will be good to you. As long as you’re good, no one has the right to say anything that hurts your feelings.

I’ve asked Christians … do you believe that climate change is a sign of God’s warning for condoning and legalising sin. Routinely, the reply is NO. Most citizens believe that climate change is just a natural phenomenon due to greenhouse gases and planet mismanagement.

But, what if the mis-management is the consequence of our sinful choices?

In our society we run by laws. If you break the law there are consequences. The fear of these consequences restricts us from disobeying these laws.

So, how come God is not allowed to punish for breaking his laws?

If there is a God, then He runs His kingdom by laws, too. If you respect His laws, everything’s fine (and that doesn’t mean that evil won’t rise up against you). However, if you deliberately disobey His laws, of course there should be consequences.

Isaiah 24:5,6 … the earth is defiled by the inhabitants thereof, because they have transgressed the LAWS, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore, the curse has devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate.

The homosexuals are dictating the laws. Fairness is only seen from their point of view.

How come homosexuals are allowed to offend my feelings with their public mardi-gra parades, but Christians aren’t allowed to view their thoughts and opinions in public or even in private? In Australia, Israel Falou was publicly derided for speaking his views in the privacy of his own church. If you stand up for your beliefs without even deliberate offence and it hurts the feelings of the majority, you get fired from your job.

It’s all about money + control + sexual perversions

Sexual perversion is called ‘love’ by the perverted. God calls it ‘hate of his laws so you can do what you like’.

The reality is, the people with the money and hatred of God, are ruling the laws, and, although we don’t like China’s human-rights’ abuses we still trade with them for the benefit of our own selfish lifestyles. It’s all about money and control.

Hurt feelings is the new old law

Everyone suffers hurt feelings, and everyone outside the kingdom of God runs on their hurt feelings. Once you listen to your feelings instead of denying your ‘self’ and choosing instead to obey the laws of God, your feelings will become your truth, you become your own physician and self-diagnose your own spiritual condition, tell people what’s right and wrong, judge and blame people for hurting your feelings, and live for not being told what to do. Effectively, there is no sin as far as you’re concerned (see Judges 17:6, 18:7), but in reality, it’s just one big selfish mood and rebellion against the inhibition of God’s inconvenient laws, and in defiance you give yourself the right for your sexual perversions, like everyone else is doing.

Citizens of the British Commonwealth were given the special privilege of learning and knowing about the true God, and their lifestyles have been blessed accordingly. They were taught to respect God, but they’ve turned their backs and chosen their feelings, and blamed God for the mess and injustices. The fault lies with the people’s indifference, and not with God.

Excuses

Just because the Catholic Church has hidden its paedophiles doesn’t mean that God is evil. Don’t blame God for men using God to abuse children. Blame Satan. Oh, so often, people use others’ sin as an excuse to turn against God. Others’ sin should drive you to search for the true God, not the church’s fake god. You have the Bible. You’re responsible to search out the truth for yourself.

What about God’s feelings?

I was discussing the behaviour and attitude of a young Christian woman who had decided to apologise for hurting someone’s feelings. After a period of intense discussion, I suggested that she was just lying to herself to make herself feel better and that it wasn’t true repentance.

In the light of God’s laws, and not her hurt feelings, the real truth was …

… she put her feelings before God’s feelings (Law 1)

… she coveted others’ popularity and ability and favour, especially with one’s father (Law 10)

… she disrespected and dishonoured her parents’ instructions. She went behind her parents’ back and wouldn’t be told what to do (Law 5)

… she committed fornication (Law 7)

… she hated her brother without just cause (Law 6)

… she lied to protect her deceptive situation (Law 9)

Choosing to deliberately break these laws = the character of Satan, not Christ.

The laws of God restrict our lusts and lead us in the right paths. Once you follow your own lusts, the real issue is you won’t conform to His laws, which means you won’t be told what’s right or wrong by God. Thus, you set yourself up as your own god and make your own laws based on your feelings, so you can do what you want.

It’s not our feelings that is the issue, it’s God’s feelings that you’ve offended.

Demons always play the game of FEAR

If God is love and there is no fear in love (1 John 4:18), then fear does not come from God. The Chinese Communists intimidate you with the fear of what you might lose if you don’t comply with their demands. The homosexual movement intimidates you with the same spirit of fear. The origin of their fear is Satan.

Homosexuals were given the legal right to marry, but they also want the right to mock and intimidate anyone who voices an opposing opinion. How come you can’t say anything against them but they can say things against you? The silent majority are being dictated to by Satanic fear, and the excuse of evil, is … if you hurt us, then we have the right to hurt you. It’s all about retribution and rights; there’s nothing about sin.

Conclusion

Life isn’t fair and hurt feelings are real, and of course, it’s not appropriate to deliberately hurt someone’s feelings without just cause, but, it certainly is appropriate to hurt the feelings of those who are sinning against God’s laws, no matter how good they think they are (see John 6:61). The real issue is, not feelings, but LAW. Once you devalue the ten commandments of God and turn your back and choose your hurt feelings as your base of evaluation, the society becomes degraded, and then the land becomes degraded. The droughts and fires across our land are not the farmers’ fault, it’s the city’s fault. It’s the fault of any society that trusted God and then turned their back on Him, devalued His laws, and let sin rise up.

If man is as clever as he thinks he is, then create life from nothing. Until he can do that, don’t dare tell God that He doesn’t exist, or that He’s the problem. The consequences could be devastating.

Sermon 111 – the Blame Game

Blame can be defined as … making some else responsible for my hassles.

Blame originated in the garden of Eden. Humanity can’t stop the thought of blame. It’s inherent in everyone’s spirit. We often practice it subconsciously with the voices we hear against others and the hassles of our circumstances.

The first thing a human does when they think they’re in trouble is look for an escape route of blame.

Blame is of Satan

Blame is a quality of Satan. It is not a characteristic of the Holy Spirit. The voice of the temptation to blame comes directly from Satan, not from God. Satan won this right when he tricked Eve with the carrot of elevation. He sold her the lie that God was holding something back from her and that she could be her own god and know good and evil. She took the bait and became Satan’s slave to sin. The good and evil she now knew was only seen from her selfish perspective. What she thought was good was only what felt good to her own thinking, and everything else was bad to her as far as she could see.

Feelings, not faith

Humanity makes its judgments on how it feels. A Christian talks to God to get His perspective; he doesn’t rely on his feelings; they more often trick you into Satan’s web. Once you’re in a web the more you try and fight it the more entangled you become. There’s only one way out of a web… you need someone greater than yourself to break off the web. Through acknowledgement of your sin, Jesus can free you from Satan’s web. There’s no other way.

Self-protection

When you protect your selfishness, blame will follow. Blame flows from selfishness and selfishness is simply me first. So when you practice blame you are practicing Satanism. You are simply worshipping yourself without even knowing it. The carrot of elevation has blinded your eyes to the truth and your feelings become your justice system. You’ve ignorantly become the judge and set yourself up as your own god. It’s anti-christ behaviour; it’s elevation and it’s selfish. It’s opposite to dying to yourself by trusting God and waiting on Him for his justice.

You can only blame others for your circumstances when you are selfish. It doesn’t feel selfish, it feels fair and just. But that’s the point; you’re analysing the truth based on your feelings, and when you practice that you confirm you’re not in the kingdom of heaven, because Jesus doesn’t practice that, only Satan does.

Cop the cross

When Jesus allowed Himself to be sacrificed on the cross He was allowing humanity to throw their blame on Him. It was totally unjust and unfair, but He did it because the Father willed it, and because he did it, humanity can be saved from its sin. The problem is, humanity can’t see its sin that it needs to be saved from. It prefers to live in the injustice of its hurts and cast blame. Whilst it does this it can never be free; it will always be under the power of Satan, no matter how much it tries or pretends otherwise; no matter how much good it thinks it does. You can be as good as you like, but eventually you will be exposed as selfish through the sin of blame.

Blasphemy

Collins dictionary defines blame as casting fault and even blaspheming. Blaspheming and blame come from the same French root. So often we automatically blame God for not coming through for us the way we want. It’s telling God how He’s supposed to behave towards us. It’s casting dispersions on the Spirit that dwells in us and if we’re not careful, it’s blasphemy. Blasphemy is the degrading of the Spirit of God by putting the blame on God instead of Satan. It’s calling the Holy Spirit, unholy.

Climate change

We look at the world’s chaos and blame God for not fixing the problems. We’re good so He should be good to us. We fail to stop and remind ourselves that the sickness of the world is the fruit of sin. Climate change is not due to climate, it’s due to sin. The Bible tells us that we come from dust and return to dust. That is, our spirit and body are directly connected to the earth we dwell on. Consequently, when we sin we pollute the land we live on. If our country endorses homosexuality, free sex, and abortion, don’t blame God for the decay of the earth; stop sinning and obey His ten commandments.

Money

Our country loves money. Our economy is the people’s prime concern. We trade with China and ignore its human rights record against fellow Christians because we love money more. We’re more interested in money than the poor, and money gives you position over people, and we falsely believe that money is a measurement of how much God loves you. Don’t blame God for the mess when He taught that the love of money is the root of all evil.

You hurt my feelings

King Saul is a prime example of how when you forget where you’ve come from and allow elevated position to rise up in you, you start envying your neighbour. You get hurt by what people say and do and hold grievances against them. From there you do what you’re told your way, and when you’re confronted that it isn’t God’s way you defend your position with blame (1 Samuel 15). The consequences of these actions results in rebellion, can’t be told, superstition and witchcraft, and eventually demonic possession.

David

On the other hand, a David cops the unjust blame and turns to the Lord for His justice and protection. A genuine Christian behaves like David and thus, Christ; he cops the blame and never blames. He ducks the javelins and He turns to the Lord and waits on His justice, not expecting any justice for himself. He’s only interest is serving Jesus Christ. A fake Christian acts good like King Saul, but their heart has elevated itself with its own importance. It thinks it’s the king and won’t listen to the prophet. It’s caught in the web of Satan.

Faith or family-blame

King Saul was David’s father-in-law. If anyone should have understood him, you would think that his wife’s family would be there to support him. But that’s not how it was and David had to run and trust God at the same time, and that’s the walk of a faithful Christian. If you waste your life blaming your parents or sister for your hurts, then you are not in Christ. A faithful Christian takes responsibility for blaming and repents and trusts the Lord’s plan with the hurts.

Suffer to reign

If you want to reign with Christ you have to suffer with Christ (2 Timothy 2:11,12); it’s not a free ride like the modern church teaches. Jesus is not Santa Claus, but most people join the church so they can get the goodies for being good and then blame God for not delivering, or get trapped into the fake worship God because they do get what they prayed for.

The Bible teaches that all that live Godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution (2 Timothy 3:12), and blame is part of that package. If you’re not interested in copping it then you’re not really interested in Christ; you’re only using Him and telling Him how He is to behave for you.

If you truly want to walk with Christ, then like Christ and David, expect to be blamed and when it hurts turn to the Lord and not to yourself. If you don’t do this, you will end up like King Saul and miss the kingdom.
