Let the Dividing Lines Be Drawn

I  had heard from a friend that TBN was pulling Jack Van Impe’s programming because of criticism of “Chrislam,” and I was praying about it when the Lord brought to my remembrance something He had shown me a few months ago during prayer – that there is corruption in TBN and it will be exposed and DayStar will take its place in the rankings of Christian networks.

Let the dividing lines be drawn. I will now bring situations into each believer’s life to cause them to choose. You must decide now, My children, whether you will truly serve Me, the Holy One of Israel, or the god of this world.

For those of you in love with this world, you shall go the way of the world and reap the fruits thereof, but My children will choose righteously. Those who are called by My name and walk in My ways will choose to serve Me no matter the cost and they shall be greatly rewarded in times to come. They shall be strengthened for what is coming. I shall be the lifter of their heads, their strong tower. They shall run in to Me and be safe from harm, but woe unto you who choose to serve the god of this world for it would be better for you if you had never been born. What awaits you is terrible indeed.

Think on this. I am raising up a standard. Choose you this day whom you will serve.

Amos 7:7: 7Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the LORD stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.

Joshua 24:15: And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Hosea 10:12-13: Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.

Psalm 3:3: But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

Psalm 61:3: For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

Proverbs 18:10: The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

Isaiah 59:18-19: According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence. So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

Read this link from Yedidah: http://www.laydownlife.net/index_files/Page682.htm

Then this excerpt:

A “word” from Abba Yahuweh to me the evening of December 13, 2009:
“It is time for the watchman to come down from the wall--for the enemy is at the gate!”

I should say that this is Yahuweh’s final plea to America—for these are not my words, but His. This is a prophetic warning that carries finality.

Right now Abba is gathering His remnant people into “bozrahs”—sheepfolds—places where He is leading His people to, in several places in the earth, for their
protection and spiritual strengthening--before the move to Edom for the last 3 ½ years before Messiah comes. We are now inside the second year of the last seven-year cycle before Messiah comes. We are fast approaching the middle point of this last seven-year cycle. The prophetic signs that are so blatant in the world, and especially in America and Israel, point to the timing that we are in. He is gathering those in temporary sheepfolds who have left end-time Babylon, so that we might have fellowship and friendship in the days ahead. He only warns those in America to flee for their lives, because it is the one nation that He must destroy to the ground—nothing left. If you are still in delusion as to why, then read this, and follow up your study on documentation that I recommend.
Abba Yahuweh never leaves us alone to fend off the wiles of the Devil by ourselves.

If this is not a call from 18 months ago for "dividing lines", I do not know what is.

Many people have fled the large mega churches because of something they felt in their spirit (My sheep know MY voice) as the pastors wanting larger congregations have compromised Truth. Obvious departures from scripture as we have seen recently with the ordination of openly homosexual pastors and this Chrislam stuff which you turned me onto.

This is a separation of wheat and tares, a separation of sheep and goats.

1Pe 4:17 For the time is come for judgment to begin at the house of God: and if it begin first at us, what shall be the end of them that obey not the gospel of God?

What really worries me, is that a lot of people believe the what the big churches are saying rather than relying upon the Author and Finisher of their faith.

It is like taking directions from a slick guy with a suit and not bothering to confirm what he said on your map. This leads a person often to being lost.

Keep up the good fight of faith.

Donna said...

you mention that Daystar would move in to top place...wasn't there adultery found in Marcus...has he repented?

Just as Yeshua said when the disciples asked what will be the sign of your coming? He said many would fall away, that many would be betrayed just as Dr. Van Impe has been. He said those that stand for the truth would be hated. Stand tall my Brothers and Sisters, run into the strong tower, keep your armor on tightly. Islam is the devil's answer to the plan of salvation and is just a 180° reflection of the plan of salvation. Their Messiah is our Anti-Christ do not be deceived, this is not a religion of peace and cannot commingle with the gospel without destroying the Church.

Love,
ElderX

Matt. 24:8
"But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
Mat 24:9 "Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.
Mat 24:10 "At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another.

Mat 24:11-16
(11) "Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.
(12) "Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold.
(13) "But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.
(14) "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.
(15) "Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),
(16) then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains.

Donna - Marcus wasn't caught in adultery, he confessed it voluntarily. Apparently other parties involved or aware were trying to blackmail him. He confessed and repented.

Glynda Lomax said...

Remove crosses from our churches??? This is BAD, yall - this quote is from a post by Bruce Wonch on Facebook: "Rick Warren has stated that it may be necessary in the interests of World Peace to remove all crosses from inside and outside Christian Church buildings! Dr. Van Impe sees this as the beginnings of the Tribulation Superchurch under Antichrist and his False Prophet, indidcating that the true Lord Jesus Christ will soon be coming for His Saints."

VJM said...

I am not familiar with who and what has been said of "Islam" but it would seem obvious to any believer that any religion that does not promote Christ as the messiah, savior and Lord can not be co-mingled with! Especially hard to imagine Rick Warren woudl suggest anything that wasn't gospel centred?!

Is this and the apparent "removing crosses" reference some sort of appeal to "Be all things to all men" type evangelism? I remember when I was in the Messianic movement (for many years) that there were never any crosses as it was considered an affront to the Jewish people, reminders of anti-Semitic slaughters and pogroms, crusades, etc. It wasn't until 5 years later when my mother walked in and was so disturbed by the fact the cross was apparently hidden away that it occurred to me how we had gone overboard in reaching others. As the Word says, the gospel IS the stench of death, an offense to those who are not believers.

The powerful message of the cross is indeed central to the gospel. We can't hide it or do Islam or what have you just in order to reach others as then we water down its message. It took a bloody, hideous death of God the Son on the cross, to make a way for us all to come to God. As scripture says...

Colossians 2:15
And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

Philippians 3:18
For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.

Galatians 6:14
May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Colossians 1:20
and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Yes I watched a video on YouTube of Jack Van Impe mentioning about a network who blocked some of his messages and wouldn't play them, He never mentioned who it was, but my first thought that came to my mind was, that it had to be TBN. Because I can remember the one son's personality that made me think of TBN.. I believe Paul Crouch turned the network over to his sons. His one son had a worldly ora about him, and that was about 10 years back or so maybe longer..
My main disappointment in the main stream ministers is that they let money play a major roll in their life styles and my feelings are that they don't live by example.. The Apostles did not let filthy Lucre rule in their lives.. But isn't that how old slue foot is," to put something deterrent in these peoples lives.. It's a shame.. Smith Wiggles Worth was one that lived by example, and followed the Apostles example to the core.. I've heard a well known Minister criticize Smith to justify his own lavish living. He lives in a thirty million dollar home has jets and his own air port.. I honestly believe the Apostles would not have live that way today.. Jesus said that they will say in that day have not we cast out Devils in your name, and healed the sick? He then said depart from me I never knew you..
YES I believe a lot of people come to know the Lord through them, and YES I believe people are being healed by these ministers.. But I do have to question their life styles though, because I don't feel it lines up with Scripture.

bubba007ss said...

Now I would never stand in the place of GOD to judge these men to where they would spend eternity.. I just feel that the prosperity message has gotten out of hand, even though I came to know the LORD through the Oral Roberts ministry.. GOD has given us each the ability to learn and to trust him by the power of the Holy Spirit.. We all are suppose to rightly divide the Word of Truth by the Holy Sprit and not our own understanding.. I can remember one particular Minister who did not agree with this prosperity message but now does.. I just feel old slue foot has thrown a stumbling block out in front of him..
Now I enjoy watching that particular Minister and feel he has a great anointing.. This is just my own thoughts and feelings concerning God's word.. I've been a Christian going on 33 years now, and use to believe in the Prosperity message.. Now don't get me wrong I do believe GOD will honor his word when you are led by him to give,, and at times it will be returned to you a 100 fold.. Now I will mention one minister because he has fallen and it is Robert Tillten.. He had a strong prosperity message, and if you do your research and find out what all this man owned..
I'm sorry I feel he milked the cow for all it was worth.. Now could people come to know the LORD through him? SURE.. Could they be healed? SURE
Why else would Jesus say have we not cast out Devils in your name and so on, if they didn't perform those task

Hi

I'm writing about a concern I have for the Body of Christ.

Understand,it is not my job to teach. In good conscience I cannot stay silent or pretend to ignore this.Because I see most here are mature Christians, I'm hoping I can share freely.

My concern is deception.

It is targeting our vulnerability, clouding our discernment, creating division, and manipulating us toward error.

What has been brought to my attention is specifically the fiery darts we've taken in the areas of God's revealed plan for Remnant Israel.

Before you shut down thinking: been there done that, Believe me I feel the same way. We've already beat each other up about this. However, I don't think we are resting in truth here.

Plainly, I believe our positions regarding Remnant Israel are in error.

The current thinking of carte blanche support of Israel does NOT line up with what God has already revealed in His Word... We seem to have forgotten that it was God's judgement that sent Israel into Babylonian captivity of Daniel's time. It was God who decreed judgement would be 70 weeks. (Daniel 9). The 70 weeks decreed are not finished yet.

God has prophetically revealed His future intentions toward Remnant Israel. This is not assumptive secrets, He has already revealed His intentions in His Word.

The problem is: the positions adopted by most christians as how to support Israel are assumptive.
They do not line up with what God has already said.

This is not a doctrine/debate issue. This is an area where the consequences of error may land us in the path of God's wrath. I don't say this lightly, nor in condemnation.

The fact that discussions about the Remnant Jews, Rapture and Revelation have provoked hotly defended responses and division among us,(and this is all over the net), is the very reason to look for the deception...
that is lurking to get a foothold.

Regarding Romans 11, God's revealed plan for Remnant Israel:

For I would not, brethren, have you ignorant of this mystery, lest ye be wise in your own conceits, that a hardening in part hath befallen Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in;
26 and so all Israel shall be saved: even as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer; He shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

Lining up our beliefs with this truth in Romans, (as well as all the other hundred scriptures we used to say this) is not enough to insure that our actions based on this are supporting God's will or His perfect revealed plan.
Here's why:

Who is Remnant Israel? Is the Zion state of Israel the same as Remnant Israel?
Is U.S. policy of economic and military support in line with God's will?
Is the current 'in-gathering' a work of God or man?
How do you send your prayers and offerings to God's Remnant?
Is the Palestinian issue in/out of God's will?

(I'm not trying to pull a Chief here)

My point is , this issue especially, is not where we want to make assumptions.

This scripture gave me pause: Zechariah 13:

:And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded; and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it.

As did Hebrews 8:
For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, That I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah;
9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers In the day that I took them by the hand to lead them forth out of the land of Egypt; For they continued not in my covenant and I turned away from them.



Zechariah 5 , showed me things are not as they appear:

5 Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth.
6 And I said, What is it? And he said, This is the ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their appearance in all the land;

7 (and, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead); and this is a woman sitting in the midst of the ephah.

8 And he said, This is Wickedness: and he cast her down into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.

9 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there came forth two women, and the wind was in their wings; now they had wings like the wings of a stork; and they lifted up the ephah between earth and heaven.

10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah?

11 And he said unto me, To build her a house in the land of Shinar: and when it is prepared, she shall be set there in her own place



Apparently Satan's deception is active here. The ephah and talent are measures for trade, pointing towards evil and manipulation in economics. Shinar is the geography of Nimrod and Babel, and it is also the area from which God called Abram. Because it is a woman in the basket, could be the 'whore of Babylon'? Seated in Shinar tells me there is witchcraft which is the spirit of Jezebel: fear, manipulation, control, domination.

So, God's prophetic voice regarding His pre-arranged plan for Remnant Israel is saying tread lightly in involvement, beware deceptions are camped right down the road.

There is much depth of what God has already revealed for His Remnant Jews.The how and why of what He is doing is somewhat transparent from Daniel 9, Zecharia, Ezekiel, and throughout the NT. Understanding God's intentions here is not a shallow study. Because our assumptions are off in this area, it also skews our perspectives on Rapture and Revelation.

Basically, I get the idea that GOD is the one who scattered Israel, GOD intends to pour out His grace on Her and GOD will be the one to 'in-gather' Her. Also, it looks to me like once Remnant Israel is 'saved by grace' God will gather Her to the 'New' heavenly Jerusalem where' living waters' will flow from the throne of David. It does not look like the intention for Remnant Israel is to return to occupy, or rebuild the physical land. Nor that there is any need to "rebuild the temple". Nor that we should presume to interfere with what God has already determined.

I show this because, based on what God has revealed, many of our knee-jerk ACTIONS and positions TOWARDS GOD's ISRAEL ARE IN ERROR !!



I don't believe the current 'in-gathering' of today is in God's will. This is His work that He will do in His timing. Also, I think we may be causing harm!

God's timing to 'in-gather' His people is revealed as a gathering of those broken in sorrow over the revelation of who Jesus is: Zechariah 12:10. He gathers His Remnant just prior to the great and last battle. This is when Jesus comes back with His saints, and all the earth mourns in recognition of Him. To encourage 'in-gathering' today we may actually be sending these folks into an otherwise avoidable war and destruction zone (the first siege).

The Remnant is actually gathered into the 'New' heavenly Jerusalem, the spiritual house of Ephesians 2.

I do not believe the dispossessing of Palestinians that the Zion State of Israel is doing today is in any way part of God's revealed plan. In fact, I believe it is in REBELLION towards God. Ezekiel 47 spells out God's prescription for dealing with the foreigners and aliens in His Promised Land as does Leviticus 19.

Military expansion of the State of Israel, the very existence of the State of Israel, is in opposition to God. Remember It was God who determined to scatter His people and decreed the 70 weeks of Daniel.

The issue of 'dividing' The Promised Land' may be a moot point. They're not supposed to be there now anyway. The land belongs to God, the Jews inheritance of it was conditional, Leviticus 18 & 25.

I believe the Government of Israel is in rebellion to God! The Zion control is what we may refer to as the 'synagogue of satan' and is definitely not His obedient Remnant.

From the description of Zechariah 5 we can pretty much figure that the creation of the Israel State and it's actions in today's world are manipulations of NWO... carrying out Satan's deceptive plans... Zion is NOT the God of Abraham's obedient Israel.

U. S. support of Israel State, propaganda demonizing the Arab states and perhaps even 'false flag' destabilizing activities are all controlled NWO agendas. This is not God's agenda!

The actions and decisions of the Zion Government of Israel have never reflected God's OT standards. This is not an agenda that God- fearing Jews would participate in. And we may be surprised to find that many OT covenant Jews are, in fact, choosing to live 'scattered' outside of Israel in the 'Arab' nations.

So, this is not an area to make assumptoms about!!

God revealed His plan for our understanding and protection. His expose' of satanic deception is supposed to be a confirmation of our discernment of how current events relate to the Word of God.

Satan, on the other hand, is working to destroy Remnant Israel , before they repent, as a way to dodge God's judgement.

Attention to God's Prophetic Voice completely exposes this 50+ year Satanic Deception.

It also exposes NWO agenda. Confirming what many have known or suspected since 9/11 about Israel State and the Middle East in general -namely that all is manipulation- contrived 'threats' of Islam and Terrorism? Orchestration of simultaneous unrest. overthrows of prior US- supported dictators? All Deception.

We cannot allow the deceptions of the enemy to play us like a fiddle. This is serious stuff.

Our prayers and positions must be under the shadow of His wings.

When there is division in the Body, we can't all be right. I do not have all the answers. Division is a clue that something is twisted. Remember, God has prophetically designed us to 'function' as His Body.

In that vein, as we are being sanctified, I don't much like thinking we may also be called to be sandpaper on one another's backside until we choose to be iron sharpening iron.

This is not meant to be a complete picture list of all the prophetic scripture that addresses this. I am hoping for other's discernment to contribute here.

My prayer and urging is for you to diligently study what God has revealed about end-times.

One of the best studies I have run across regarding God's revealed plan for His Remnant Israel and the impact of this information on interpreting Rapture and Revelation is:

One of the best study guides I have found is all written down in the Bible, by the leading of the Holy Spirit,, because God's wisdom by far over exceeds mans wisdom.. Israel is only a speck surrounded by all those Arab nations that want to eliminate her, and it will not stop with them giving the Palestinians their land. The Arabs don't want peace with Israel they only want deception.. The Muslims want to rid the World of all the Jews and Christians.. The Quran teaches them that, that's how it will be in the future with them.. I have a world Globe on my desk, and when you try to find Israel on that globe you need a magnify glass to see her.. We will soon see these same Muslims blowing up places here in the US.,, and their will still be people blaming the JEW or as you call them the Zionists..
When I first became a believer I studied no other mans writings concerning the Bibles teachings, because I believed their is a Devil, and that his only motive was to deceive.. So I instead chose to wear a few bibles out for the answers that I was looking for,, but also take it to heart of what others had to say, until I seen it in God's word for my self..
The only deception here is stepping out of God's realm to trust others..

I agree bubba. If it can't be backed up biblically and with clarity, then I shy away. Even biblically can be discerned wrong if we aren't careful. Some words were not translated as they should have been. Some meaning has been lost,even in the KJV. I won't even touch some of the newer versions because some words have been added or taken away on purpose. We know what God says about this. God is not the author of confusion.

bubba007ss said...

I'm home for lunch.. I've only ever read the King James version, and when I would pick up the others up I found to many flaws in them.. I started out with a dictionary in one hand and a Bible in the other.. At the time I didn't know what verily meant or even a lot of the other words meant in the Bible.. But with GOD all things are possible.

kathy said...

Bubba and mctread,

Thanks, I was hoping I would get some kind of response to my blog about Who God's Chosen Are.

Make no mistake- I am in agreement with all scripture concerning God's revealed plan for His remnant Jews. And most definitely see Christian and Jew as the spiritual building blocks of the New Jerusalem. I know, and want to embrace, the root from which I was grafted in.

My concern is I believe we have been deceived about the IDENTITY of who God's Chosen are.

Up until recently, I too, supported everything Israel, thinking I was obedient to God's desire of His prophesied salvation of His Chosen people.

You both mentioned your reliance on and knowledge of the Bible. For this reason, I invite you to help me look at what I believe is a deliberate plan to deceive us.

Because much of how we interpret end-times prophetic scripture depends on our understanding of who 'Israel' is and who 'Judah' is, I am very interested in dialoging to make sure we are seeing the truth here.

I'm not taking pot shots at the Jews.I did not post here to see my opinion in writing, in fact, I only post my opinions in areas where God has worked with me or has highlighted for me.

Rather, I am aiming at what I see as a demonic, NWO, attempt to confuse and mask the real 12 Tribes of Israel.

I'm looking for grounded christians here to help me answer the questions that do not line up with what God has revealed about His Chosen Remnant.

If this moves your interest, I would like to share more of why I see this as a deception we cannot ignore.

Thanks!

Kathy I don't even worry about it,, it has nothing to do with our Salvation, all that's required of us is to serve him with all our hearts, soul and strength, and minds. For those of us that believe in the pretrib or Midtrib, we won't be around any how, one way or the other... I would be careful of other men's writings, and just like the Mormons and other religious sects. They all sound very convincing.. All you need is your Bible and FAITH in God then he will take care of the rest... I know there are some that don't believe in a literal hell, I can remember years back when my cousin told me that he didn't believe there was a Hell.. But I couldn't debate that with him back then one way or the other.. What I did back then was I ask the LORD to show me... I didn't go to the Local book store or listen to some body else's opinion on the subject, but rather I would start from the book of Genesis until I reached the book of Revelation marking all the Scriptures I found on the subject..
When I read my Bible I read it like a book and never agreed with this thing called reading your Bible in one year.. What can you glean from it? I would read mine in less then three months.. I had every Scripture marked on the subject then gave that Bible to my cousin.. What caused me to give him that Bible was he was at my house one day and was looking through the pages, then said" You aught to give me that Bible... I paused for a moment then said" Sure" Then I remembered that particular bible had all the Scriptures marked in it concerning Hell.. I didn't tell him how to believe.. I told him to go home and study my findings concerning it, then decide for him self.. It wasn't my place to make him believe one way or the other...
I personally believe there is a hell,, and one way or the other, the lost will go there...

I stand firm on that belief to this day not to trust in man but the word of God only... You can't go wrong there..
I've seen so many people drift away to other men's teachings or writings,, then claim God showed them this new found truth or faith that they now believe in .. I'm Charismatic in my Faith and I mention a church in one of my posts about a Lady Minister letting her Husband take control over her Ministry that she had started.. He operated under the flesh because of what he saw in other churches instead of relying upon the Holy Ghost.. I gave it a name back then, I called it the Charismatic World wind that wasn't led by God.. It's very important for the believer to take heed of every step they take because the Bible warns us that Satan is a ROARING Lion seeking whom he my devour..
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Proverbs 30:5__ Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Other men's beliefs are not pure, but God's Word is

Ro 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Again you can't go wrong by standing on the word of God
I personally don't venture out side the Bible very far because it's my friend that sticketh closer then a brother

I call it my Comfort Zone... A better name for it is Comforter Zone.. He said he would send the Comforter in his name.. He's all I need

We had a Scientist a well back the claimed that he figured out a way to grow human limbs and such.. He had the whole world believing him, come to find out it was all a bunch of Lies.. He was removed form his position, and he was also renowned scientist from China

One other note," Look at Rick warren here, He has obviously stepped out of his comfort zone, or should I say Comforter Zone.. to appease the world.. My advise to any body is to never" No never," step out of that Comforter Zone.. The Bible along with the Comforter.. {Holy Spirit} Never"" I say Never"" step out of that Zone

When the subject came up between my cousin and I concerning hell I didn't try to force my beliefs off on him. I felt what I gleaned from my Bible was truth instead of some body else's Ideology concerning hell.. I told him to check those scriptures out and learn for him self.. But my cousin finds it easier for him to trust some body else's ideology concerning issues.. He can't fathom the idea of how a Loving God can send people to Hell.. I personally fill it's all about free will, and it's of our own choosing where we will spend eternity... I find it very amusing when I talk to Catholics for the reason why they don't read their Bibles, and yet some how, feel they are OK with God.. Jesus said" Search the SCRIPTURES; for in them ye think ye have eternal life:
Why do you think Jesus used the illustration of the shepherd and the sheep? As long as the Sheep would stay with the Shepherd they were safe, but when they would wonder off some where they would get into all kinds of trouble, and if a sheep would fall over on it's back it could die. Then shepherd would come along using his staff with the hook on it to turn the sheep back over onto it's feet again... When the shepherd would have to move to better grazing land he would go before his sheep looking for any bad plants that could harm them.. If sheep are left alone they will eat all kind of things that could take their lives from them and cause serious harm.. So the Shepherd would go before them to prepare those table lands for his sheep to graze upon, clearing out every harmful plant that could harm them..
You see when these sheep were left alone they would wonder off to graze on unfertile ground.. It is so important not to venture to far out from the word of God.. We are only sheep that think we can go it alone..
Holy Joe down the street is not your shepherd,, I'm not your Shepherd,, but Jesus alone
My self personally, I will stand close to the word of God with no compromise..
I can remember working for a Christian man for seven years. He would not read any other material other then the word of God, and I was in full a agreement with him because that's how I felt.. I read peoples testimonies and other articles, but when some one comes off with something new other then what I see in God's word, red flags start to go up.. Then I go back into my comforter Zone,, his word and his Holy Spirit..
Education recently got Casey Anthony off on murder charges.. Education is destroying this Nation.. Why do you think Jesus chose uneducated men to follow him? Because their minds weren't corrupt with others ideology.. Jesus could work with that.. Apostle Paul was exceptional, and he was educated, but he had enough common sense not to venture to far out from the word of God, and taught others to do like wise

Psalm 23r
Ps 23:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Ps 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Ps 23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Ps 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
HE'S ALL I NEED
Ps 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Ps 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

I just thought of something"" The Earth needs the same kind of vitamins and nutrients as our body's do in order to produce a good yield.. Zinc Mag. Calcium.... The same goes for Adam and Eve," If we truly believe we have originated from them, then that means all our DNA are intertwined together,,, and also means we are connected to the earth as well and to each other.. Remember Jesus said we have been grafted into the vine.. So lets start swinging : ) : ) :)
Read on the side of a bag of fertilizer and see what it Say's... Fertilizer is used to make the soil healthier,, but on that list is what you need to make your body healthier

I hear Posttribers say that we will have a great falling away first, which is true.. I'd say it's already in it's first stages, because the falling away is taking place.. We've had 26 states read from the Koran in so called Christian churches, and not only in the US, but around the world also, and this trend is growing, that's how an evil Spirit works.. We have Rick Warren telling churches to take down their Crosses so not to offend any body, this trend will grow also.. For some reason Rick thinks your church will grow faster.. He also recommended churches in not giving any altar calls, and a few other issues that doesn't line up with the word of GOD.. I'd say the great falling away is already in it's first stages.. So you Posttribers better be right! Or you'll be the ones left behind in the end.. A Pentecostal church took Ricks advice and took down their Cross.. Some of the attendees noticed it missing and as soon as they found out the reasons why, they left the church as fast as their feet could carry out.. In the last days there will be a delusion brought forth upon the church to test his bride whether or not they stand stead fast in the Faith.. Churches are starting to crumble by listening too lying a Spirits.. The falling away is already starting to take form.. Are You Ready? Are You Watching? Have you surrendered your whole being over to his will, by giving up your own will..

That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither be Ye fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor Drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
That means you are sealed with the Holy Ghost
