‘All of You’
Have you seen the publications that are mailed to you, some are catalogs of ‘New and Bestselling Titles’? Well, this particular one, prides itself on offering all kinds of books on lost knowledge and wisdom.
Basically every concept of thought on the esoteric virtues: love, God, wisdom, health, spirit, is explained or theorized, has been experienced and/or is transforming.
Some people might consider such books as: ‘The Oil Pulling Miracle’, as food for thought and an increase in helpful knowledge. I applaud such. Others may think of it as food for suckers…you being the sucker if you buy it. ($12.95 @ 1-800-246-8648)
These objectors tend to oppose anything that their doctor hasn’t ordered. So skip trying to suggest any health books such as ‘Colloidal Silver the Natural Anti-biotic’*; for you will be smugly laughed at. *($14.95 @ 1-800-246-8648.)
Now I find books like, ‘Lessons from the Twelve Archangels” of interest because I am a Christian with the gift of Prophecy and have been given to know understanding in the Way.
So, when I read the included book details, including its price $15.00 @ 1-800-246-8648; and read: ‘In this book the author shares lessons, practices, and daily guidance from the twelve archangels to help us listen to and heal our wounded inner child, release our fears, and enact deep subconscious transformation. Each word, transmitted directly from the archangels, carries their love, so that when read, the love is absorbed into the readers mind and supports the release of our deepest wounds and fears.’ You can imagine I was interested.
I find this interesting because as a Christian learned in the Way, I know that the Love of the Father is revealed to us in the ‘Understanding’ of the Written Word that we have seen the Truth in, and see to acknowledge the Truth is in/of Jesus. And that’s a factual way of saying ‘…so that when read, the love is absorbed…!
So whose love do you want? The archangels? Or the Father’s? Which is real? Since even the Lord Jesus doesn’t boast his love when he says, ‘…that the love of the Father may be in you, and I in you too.’ (John 17:26)
Since the angels in heaven worship God only and bow to Jesus, who, in his pre-incarnate form of the God “I AM”, called forth and created the angels to protect us who are of the Chosen in Jesus, because God loves us so much that he even gave us his only begotten Son: “I AM” who became Jesus, who died for us whom he loves. Whose love do you want?
The book talks of healing the inner child; Jesus says “Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.” Obviously the 12 angels…oops I mean archangels, try to give us the wisdom of god but not using the Word of God.
So far this book claims two virtues, heal the inner child vs. become as a little child, and the archangels love vs. The Father’s love. Trying to strike a chord with our spiritual needs in God, but revealing a different expression of vanity. The way this book is described it is clear that the person that hopes this book will give them clarity of faith and purpose in love that fills them with good feelings, is in need of truth not lies, a true heart that sees the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is true, and hence reject the claims in this books description.
If this is you, read my Christian blogs on my ‘worksbyjj’ Facebook site that try to share the Way of Jesus and how we become One with him as we walk in the Way Jesus taught his disciples to come to him. And I say, if you walk in the Way of Jesus with sincere intent to know and acknowledge truth that reveals the love of the Father; then I am confident The Father will reveal himself through the truth in Jesus.
If you have already received the Spirit of Truth in your salvation, yet feel lost now because you have lost the loving feeling; don’t worry, just begin walking in the Way and you will grow in your Spiritual maturity of your faith, and you will know the love you first felt, all the time.
These books are fun to read about and often provoke an interest in curiosity, besides being immensely beneficial…maybe not in spiritual truths but in books that give healthful information. I am totally for Colloidal Silver and Oil Pulling.
My overall view is that, with such a large library of books, I can’t help but give a thumbs up. There is something I believe, everyone can find an interest in.
I’m sure if you called and asked for a complimentary issue of their “New and bestselling titles” publication, that they would send you a free copy. Just call that number that you would call to order one of these books.
Keep an open mind but only look to Jesus for matters of life and life ever-lasting. Teach yourself by reading about the books; learning the health benefits from pulling coconut oil through your teeth, or the germ killing power of colloidal silver, and adding the revelations of Gods ‘Remembrances’ when you have reached the point of understanding of truth in your walk in the Way. And in a more complete well-rounded understanding of life, your wisdom grows in understanding.
“Works by J.J.”
According to the World Christian Encyclopedia there are over 34,000 different Christian doctrine teaching churches.
Are all of them wrong? Are all of them right? Are any of them right? Are any of them wrong? Does anyone know?
I know! And I know you think you know. Can anybody ever really know? I smile, I laugh. All the supposed great thinkers, all of the supposed great evangelists; I know, none of them really know.
It has been said that the odds of changing a persons mind once they have already accepted a stand in their belief, is 9 to 1 against you, even if you can prove them wrong!!
Why is it that, “Blessed are the meek, (teachable) for they shall inherit the earth.”
Why is it that, “…he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way, shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sin?”
Where one sin in the unsaved soul is enough to condemn a person to hell’s fire, a covering of a multitude of sin must testify to the difficulty of the task.
Which of the churches shall cast out the believers and kill them thinking they do God service?
Which of the Christians will be the ones to hear the shout of the angel: “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues?”
Why are people all over the world looking for answers that the churches have not been able to answer to their satisfaction?
I know! And I know you think you know. I smile, I laugh…I’m sad. All the great thinkers, all of the supposed great evangelists; I know, none of them really know.
“In those days…I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.”
“In that day…shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner anymore, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: and thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is The Way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” Isa. 31:19-21
In these days we call the End-Times, we will be given pastors and teachers to teach us a message of the gospel that most of us will reject! A message called: “The Way.”
Jesus is The Way, the truth and the life…. Yet the churches are focusing on: The Truth of Jesus: The evangelical message of the gospel.
Like the Jews who focused on the letter of the law, (Rom. 7:6) we Christians are given the same admonition: “…as ministers of the New Testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.” (II Cor. 3:6)
The letter killeth and the spirit giveth life, yet in all of the thousands of Christian doctrines being taught, NOT ONE of them is teaching us The Way to knowing the life of the spirit other than the evangelistic way of confession and repentance.
Oh sure, we teach we need to be born-again…we teach no one can get to heaven except through Jesus, (which makes him the way, but not The Way!) We have taught, as best we knew how, the 3-fold message of the gospel as found in Luke 24: 46-47; His birth, death and resurrection, and of repentance and the forgiveness of sins. But of the six key gospel concepts: “faith, hope, love, believe, repentance and obedience;” all are taught according to the letter, not the spirit!!! Hence, they are not according to the “The Way” in Christ Jesus.
I know none of you know. And I know you think you know.
I attach no fault, no blame. God hid his teachers till these end-times for a reason. Praise God in his wisdom!!
But he made provision for the continuation of his gospel through his apostles and his prophets and through those who love God; and in the end times, through his teachers.
Between his, (Jesus) time and ours, The Way has been kept hidden, but we, that are born-again, are meant to be able to accept it when it gets taught. Why be meek, why be humble?
This is the main battle to be faced today: to be able to discern the truth of The Way, and accept it so that we can also accept it’s reward.
Pride, boasting, vanity, ego, closed minded, self-seeking… 9 to 1!!! Do you fear your churches ex-communication? Does your family tradition mean more to you? Is the teacher of ill repute?
Oh, that you could see the beauty of The Way…in the time just ahead when the anti-Christ shall appear as an angel of righteousness, all who know The Way will know he’s a fake!
I know where I will stand, I know where most of you will stand…I smile…I laugh… I am sad… I cry.
“Works by J.J.”
“And he, (Jesus) gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some pastors and teachers;…till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” Eph. 4:11-16
Any ministry that attempts to bring the “church” (the body of Christian believers in Christ Jesus,) together is found to be doing God’s will. But let us use caution when discerning the means by which this unity is to be established.
There is a false effort of unity afoot, perpetrated by those that think this unity is a melding together of denominations. Such is being attempted by the Catholic Church, which views the many protestant churches as: “Separated Brethren.”
But the unity spoken of in Ephesians is not a melding of churches, but the bringing together all believers of our Lord Jesus, into a unified doctrine understanding that: reveals fuller revelation of Jesus in our lifestyle and our faith; A unity that gives us a solid foundation to withstand tribulations of false doctrines and sinful temptations; A unity that establishes the “Christian” body of Christ as a family. “That which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.” (Verse 16)
A unity that Paul also, “[beseeches us]…by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” (I Cor. 1:10)
Such a doctrine that accomplishes within us the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God has not been acknowledged in the world, except by apostles, prophets and those that love God. (Eph. 3:5 and I Cor. 2:9) Yet, in these “End-Times” prophecy given in Jer. 3:15 and Isa. 30:20-26 indicate that this doctrinal message will be revealed so that we will not be taken in by the false prophets or teachers, and blindly fall victim to embracing revelation’s “one world church” or it’s leader. It’s in the bible already, waiting to be acknowledged.
The key that allows us to know “The Way” of unity in the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God is found in “Repentance.” Proper repentance!
Here’s how it works: we ask ourselves: “Why do I do the wrong I don’t want to do?” Yes, we are ‘of the flesh’ but sin also has motive! And in the reasons for our motives, the Spirit reveals loving and truthful alternatives we can ‘choose’ to ‘submit’ to and abide in until we become ‘transformed’ by the ‘renewing of our minds’, thus becoming ‘increasingly conformed into His image.’
Such is The Way of repentance in the New Testament bible. The love we “find” is God’s Love, and we become ‘one of those that love God.’
It’s ugly out in the world, now a days. There’s just one other way to describe it: Godless.
Let’s face it we came to this country fleeing Christian persecution and made it a safe haven to the worlds persecuted, regardless of their faith. Only we lost our faith, and we let the godless use our laws to distance us from God as the Father and God the Son Jesus.
Some of us still have the strength of faith, but we are family strong not nation strong. No surprize, the Bible showed clues to our nations spiritual condition, saying the love of many will grow cold.
As this Final Empire expires, many will suffer and many will die. My advice gather the wagons and stand ready. Lone families are being targeted. Thus saith the News.
But I think I smell a skunk! This latest ugliness was in Orlando. How could this have happened? Isn’t this one too many suspect’s that have been cleared by those in authority?
Or am I being paranoid? I’ve been diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic…but am I? I’ve been diagnosed as borderline institutionalized and borderline exhibitionist. I’ve been diagnosed as insane.
I dare say if I am ever arrested for being a Christian, the News would have a field day bringing in my past and making it look like I was the sicko everyone is warned about. I might even be cast as a possible maniac on the loose! A terrorist even!
But even though I was occupied and living with this sick maniac in me, he no longer lives. As I’ve shared in all of my many articles, I now have a new life with the Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus in me. Having been given the gift of prophecy, so I can understand the gospel of and the person in Jesus; and have a reason for my belief. And I was taught to know the lost teaching of Jesus so that I may share it with you. But what will you think if I’m ever cast as the bad guy?
I smile, because of the many possible reactions. As a Christian nation we have always given the person who says they have changed and become a christian, the chance to prove themselves.
As a nation on the move west to the new land opened up, It was a move of promise to depend on the Lord Jesus and raise a God fearing family. You were welcome in the west and your past was not an issue but how you proved yourself to be from now on. For many, a new land came with a new name.
Myself, I call myself JJ. For Jim and Jesus. Tho’ many thought it should say Jesus and Jim. J
Now here’s the thing. We all know about the jim jones and the waco incident and would be shocked or smug, if you were to hear that I was on the fbi’s most wanted list. You would shrug your shoulders and say, ‘you never can tell.’
But you can!
Now that is settled let me say this:
Most Christians don’t know the hidden wisdom found in Jesus and my teaching of the ‘Way’ is lost on empty ears. I know I’m understood in the way of love in truth but I’m failing to be seen as a familiar recognition of the gospel doctrine, thus you don’t embrace the Way in/of the Lord Jesus.
Hell’s fire and brimstone is more to the accustomed fare in churches now a days. And hell’s bells, what’s so important about the teaching of the Way, anyway?
I’m glad you asked. It has reasons and benefits. Do you want to understand what life is all about? Do you want to know what the truth is and what Jesus taught his disciples? Do you want to feel the love you first felt when you were saved? And much more…Then you need to learn to walk in the Way Jesus gave us to walk in.
‘We have the Mind of Christ!’ more than just a ‘study’ of the Bible or a phony program that promises to change the Mind but only teaches you to associate scripture references that are suppose to overcome your negativity. But do nothing to teach you to be One with Jesus and experiencing the love of the Father.
One mind in Christ Jesus means we are all walking in the Way that Jesus taught us to walk in. In repentance of all unloving aspects of sin in our life, and replaced with each unloving sins alternative that is truthful so that anyone could choose to acknowledge it and having a loving choice that does no harm to its neighbor. Once found we just choose to submit to the loving Way and then we abide until we are transformed to be one with it.
As a nation of prophets we need to unify in the Mind of Christ. When we learn the ‘hidden’ wisdom found only in Jesus, we can be one. Attaining understanding of the Way and walking it as well as talking it is the Mark of a true Christian. ‘you will hear a voice behind you saying this is the Way walk ye in it whenever you turn to the right hand and whenever you turn to the left hand.’ Isa.31:20-26 kjv
As one in/with Jesus we only have compassion for the loss of life done by an Isis sympathizer. As a Christian we honor all life in the Father and wrong no one. But as Christians we are persecuted by the sinners of this world.
The writing is on the wall…if Muslims must go, then all religions must go. Especially Christianity. Warped thinking that will be favored by the sinning.
Only, this time Jesus comes and saves the day from darkness and tosses sin and the devil into the depths of hell.
The devil can’t win but his sinners will have their day of sin… it’s already started!
Every Christian in America must be reeling in anguish with the sin of the sinners. Is it just the transgender or is it the erection of the hundred foot statue of the Goddess of Venus? The so-called goddess of transmutation – able to make men into women and women into men. Where does it stop?
I am reminded about the true story of the painting of the last supper by Leonardo Davinci.
It is said that it took 6 months to paint each apostle and Jesus. The first person painted was Jesus and when Leo found a person who in his sight was the perfect example of Jesus, he painted him. Every apostle but the last one was painted; but the last one was hard for Leo to find because of his penchant for painting someone whom he thought was a picture of perfection for the character he was painting. But Judas the traitor was hard to find. Then one day a gendarme told Leo about a man scheduled for the guillotine.
Leo went to the prison and looked at the man and said, ‘Perfect!’ he got the criminal a stay of execution until after he was painted.
Six months Leo painted this man and when he was done and prepared to leave, the criminal asked Leo, ‘Look at me. Don’t you know me?’ to which Leo said no. the criminal cried out, ‘My God how far have I fallen! Seven years ago you painted me as Jesus!’
It’s already started…are you prepared?
Unity in the mind of Christ is how you will know who to trust, and who the anti-Christ will be when he claims to be God.
Knowing the Way: the teaching of Jesus, is yours to understand and to walk in; in time you will mature. And if you are found walking in the Way when Jesus returns, you will entrance into heaven will be abundantly administered.
But if you choose the way of the world; well, lets say, “may God have mercy on your soul; and grant you a quick death in hell.
Make no mistake, hell is real and serves to punish as well as take the life of sinners who chose sin in death rather than Jesus in life. And unless you have been given the Holy Spirit, there is no escape from hell’s fire.
Sin for a season, burn for a reason! It only takes seven years to fall beyond redemption, and only those born-again will live, even if they die before the Lords return. He promises to raise us up at the last day.
Why would you choose death? Is the burn of sinful desire being satisfied worth the satisfaction and harm given?
How you choose to walk is how you choose to be in life. I hope you have chosen the Way of Jesus to walk in, as it is not a grievous thing to do.
I stepped into the path of the Way and found my freedom in the Way in/of Jesus and in the understanding seen: the knowledge of God’s Righteousness is made certain and God’s Love is given foundation, and my faith in Jesus is given reason to believe in. love grows with the choosing and Jesus in Truth shows us the love of the Father. You will learn this too!
Your purpose in life is to find God. And God’s will is: ‘that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life and I will raise him up at the last day.’ John 6:40 kjv
And if you see the Son you also see the Father.
Jesus said, ‘my yoke is light and easy to carry.’ Easy because all you have to do is choose to change your attitude of mind by making all of your reasons for sin in compliance to truth acknowledged, that reveals love that does no harm, and choose to do it.
With this mindset we set out to remove any defiant sin that causes harm and rejects Jesus Christ, to find the truth of our sins motive; then we choose to submit to the loving alternative in truth. A daily walk of picking up our cross to walk in the Way of Jesus. Having our measure of faithfulness in our understanding of faith made certain.
Continue to read the New Testament and keep walking in the desire for truth that reflects the love of The Father, and does no harm to its neighbor. Just don’t fake it like the churches teach. Find the truth and walk in the Way of Love.
‘All things are permissible, but not all things are beneficial.’ Don’t get sidetracked! Keep working on the questioning of your sin you do that you wish you didn’t do. Seek out the understanding of why you do it…is it your need for worries, riches, and/ or pleasures you lust for?
And remember: ‘man’s anger defeats God’s righteous purpose.’ ask yourself: why are you angry?
It’s easy once you have proven the Way to yourself, and have seen the verses on it, and given all credit to Jesus, even as his Word has revealed him to be the author and the finisher of our faith.
Caution: Contrary to the worldly teaching of having a change of mind to be one that replaces negative thoughts with scriptures that are positive. This isn’t the Way of Jesus. When you walk in the Way you don’t look to verses that deny how you feel and reflect how Jesus acted. Rather you find the truth to why you feel that way and when you see the true reason for your actions then you can see a spiritually given ‘remembrance’ given by the Father that reveals the truth in a loving response to acknowledge and choose to submit to. Thus the Word is experienced in every step of our walk in the Way; and in the incremental progression of harvesting the truths of experience and revelation, we grow to be one with Jesus operating in his Spirit. We become One in Jesus; but for now we can only know him in the amount of truth that we can find in our part measure of faith, which is sufficient to our belief. To be given the full measure when Jesus returns.
The other way…you’d still be trying to calm your negatives by concentrating on the positives found in verses, rather than becoming One in the Mind of Christ…rather than coming into the knowledge found in understanding…rather than knowing the love of God reveled by the Truth found…rather than overcoming the world within to find the kingdom of heaven within…rather than seeing to believe by a proven faith, and not the blind faith that you were mis-taught…rather than discerning all things and having your confidence made certain…rather than know the Way of Jesus and in Jesus…and rather than being found walking in the Way of Jesus and receiving an entrance into heaven abundantly administered…you’d rather fall for another false doctrine given to you by some person rather than a true understanding given to you by the Father in ‘Remembrances’, by the Son in his word of teaching utilizing the Spirit who makes it all possible in Jesus!!!
And that is how we worship the Father according to the Way; just like Paul the apostle does.
You start out by saying: Make the commitment to worship God according to Biblical truth rather than human tradition. Take time to study the bible and get to know the true God. Cont…
Well, I hate to say it but you have made your rant your tradition; void of understanding in the Mind of Christ and ignorant as to how to walk in the Way of Jesus.
You say God a lot, even when referring to Jesus; yet when you refer to him from whom Jesus was beget, then he is called the Father, while Jesus is called Jesus, Lord or Lord Jesus.
And if you are looking to worship God the Way he wants, then you need to know it isn’t done by Bible studies. That’s not even the half of it! More like a third of it. You need to read the New Testament, but we are too often distracted from what Jesus taught us in concert with the apostles and Paul.
Paul confessed he worshipped God the Father according to the Way, and of which he was a follower of the Way.
Isaiah 31:20-26 expresses an end-time prophecy that tells us we shall see the teachers and hear the word behind you saying this is the Way, walk ye in it, whether you turn to the right way or whether you turn to the left way.
Hence only One thing can be done to worship The Father or the Son: Jesus, and that is: Walking in the Way that Jesus taught us to walk in! !
Now Jesus is the Way , the truth and the life, and anyone who is saved by the receipt of the Holy Spirit of The Lord Jesus is going to heaven Guaranteed. But until then we are to learn to know the Lord Jesus.
It is prerequisite that you read the New Testament. This is necessary so that once you start purposely walking in the Way of Jesus you will be known by the Father as to your state of mind and when the evidence of the substance you are scrutinizing is nigh apparent to thee, then The Father is said to give us a revolutionary revelation through a ’Remembrance’ of the Truth you are about to discover and it will be a truth Jesus spoke.
We begin walking in the Way of Jesus when we start walking in Repentance. This isn’t your main-stream turn-away from sin 180°, that’s old testament repentance, New Testament Repentance teaches us to: reconsider your sins from a divine viewpoint of thought, will, and emotion and then, choose to submit to the divine Way. The divine Way of Love that does no harm to its neighbor. Of a remembered Truth that we acknowledge as from and in Jesus. And anyone can do it. Just by a choice. As we choose to abide in the Way of Love learned in the Spirit yet backed by scripture, we learn discernment and in time we learn confidence of belief. A faithfulness in faith sufficient unto our belief in Jesus.
To begin: when we put-off the old man we don’t do it by thinking pleasantries…We Do it by looking for the motive of why we do that which we don’t want to do. In searching for our motive we have to identify the desires we have and their yearning for the worries, riches, and / or pleasures. And we ask ourselves Are we hurting anyone even ourselves…can anyone choose to do the right thing to do…is it scriptural?
Count yourself blessed to have a desire that is easily recognizable as a sin, and your desire to overcome the sin that so easily entangles you is admirable, but lets put ourselves in walking motion and start asking those questions that lead you to finding the truth of your problems and the remedy only Jesus can deliver, the teaching of the Holy Ghost.
If you say you do not sin, you do not honor the truth. How you get rid of sin, does.
When you walk in the Way of Jesus you repent and learn to believe in Him. His Way of questioning the problem’s we face in the crucible of self deception is the only Way to find the truth and to allow The Father to give you a spiritual revelation in the remembrance of truth opens to your understanding: that you have a choice. Now start making them!
We all have a part measure and yet it will be and is ‘sufficient to your belief.’
Walking in the Way of Jesus increases the love of the Father in us incrementally as we progress along the Way, until our part measure is full and sufficient for our belief. Then the love you first knew at salvation is re-established in your life experiences. Love in Truth is proven to increase with the choosing. Verses become understood, the substance supports the evidence and proof is known sufficient unto your belief in Jesus, for it is Jesus who shows us the Love of the Father. Faith is established.
This is how we put-off the old man and put on the new man created in true Righteousness and Holiness.
Hence we learn to worship the Father by coming to be one with his Son whom we strive to know the Mind of…his thought, will, and emotion.
To walk in the Way is the only Way given to us. When you have learned the Way, walk in the Way and teach the Way then, you will have matured.
Understanding is knowledge of the Holy One.
When we repent in the church it is more of a confession of being a sinner and a desire to know Jesus as Lord God and Son of the Father. If we are seen by the Father as sincere and in relation to the date long foreseen as the time of our salvation, then we will receive the Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus, given to the Father by Jesus to administer as he saw fit. With it we are guaranteed life in the ever-after, and with it we are to be lead to the acknowledging of Truth found as we walk in the Way.
Yet the guidance of the Holy Spirit requires us to walk in the Way; to make our calling and election sure.
All of life is a collection of choices in how we choose to become. Love in Truth, or deceitful desires that bring harm upon the innocent.
Knowledge, being loving in truth, understanding and teaching the Way are all the earmarks of a true Christian.
My name is james, but I call myself J.J. I‘m 62 years old, and am on a mission. I’m gifted in the gift of prophecy and consider myself a prophetic teacher of the Word of God, so as to comfort, strengthen, and encourage the church-body with words easy to understand.
Yet, even though I teach a simple Way of love and truth in the Lord, most of you will reject my teachings. They are not my teachings but the Lords; I just share them with a depth of insight and understanding that you have to find for yourself in order to establish your faithful belief. I just show you HOW to find your answers in the Lord.
Most of you will reject the Word I share and never benefit, but some of you…one here, one there, another elsewhere will be able to “acknowledge”, in the spirit, the truth of what I share; yet you will still be trapped in the worlds wisdom of the Word of God. I know because I was trapped also until I found the Way.
You will say you understand me, and offer up your own understanding of your gospel beliefs as a way of showing me you understand, but when I clarify the Way of the true gospel, which clashes with your expression of truth and you will soon reject me and the word I share. (see my article ‘The Teaching of Christian Churches Today’)
I can understand how it is. Many of you have been soured by the constant call for donations. Why just today I saw an issue of a local newspaper and on the front page was a story of a Radio station that was to become the ‘Soul of San Diego’ but after two years had to close down due to lack of funds to continue.
We know why it didn’t succeed, you liked the idea of a christian radio station that would address the need for christian music and talk that didn’t cross the line of vulgarity that a lot of radio stations have crossed. But that wasn’t enough for your donations. What’s in it for you? Music, that to me is almost useless, or talks about Jesus but it’s not really enough is it?
It’s the same way at the churches…you go to one and don’t like the message so you try a different one. The Bible says that we only want to hear what our itchy ears want to hear. And after hearing some of the music that some of the other stations are playing I can understand why you like it. It’s vulgar, threatens you and excites you.
Some of the same complaints were given to ‘Rock n Roll’ in its hey days. Yet a lot of the good songs that we like, speak a good word. Jethro Tull wrote an album that tried to show ‘us’ the feelings of what he thought of the churches that believed God had to be wound up on Sundays, while the rest of the week went to hell and back by next Sunday only to wind up God again.
Devo showed us their view of life and Truth, there songs of hope, showed us that superstitions like stepping on cracks to break our mothers back were just that, superstitious malarky.
Breakfast in America by Super Tramp told us that there’s a long way home or a short way home and it is up to us to choose which way to go. But what is the short way home?
The songs don’t tell you. The artist that wrote them are seeking the truth too! Some of the songs tell us that we don’t have to live like a refugee…for every one has hurdles that can trip them up. But we can overcome them as easy as changing our view and understanding of them.
Churches are popular when they give a sermon that touches our heartstrings, but their answers are tempered by their churches doctrine. And we look for our answers elsewhere at another church, in another song, or another book, another conversation or just by reading the Bible and praying for understanding. But none of them are giving you the Way of God’s Love and Truth with the reasoning that clarifies the meaning.
None but me. And I can only do it through my gift of prophecy. But Christianity is so much more! “Do good to one another, especially to our brothers in Christ.” Are you doing this? Yes, you are giving to the churches, you are feeding the hungry, you are giving your tithes to one homeless bum at a time. But is that enough? What are you giving yourself? You have a job, you are making out, but times are tough and you can’t give as much as you would like and even if you could it’s not enough and will need more. And you hope that others will be as giving. And then, you could use some help too!
When we look at Hurricane Katrina or the tsunami and earthquakes in Japan, we see the need to help. How many of you are artists and performed for charity? How many of you are actors and gave to a fund raiser? How many of you give just so you can have a tax write off? That’s ok, the needy don’t complain about that kind of giving, they only wish they had the job that makes them good money so that they could give when the time comes.
As a God fearing country we collectively give more to distressed nations than any other nation. But what are we doing to perpetuate the giving?
I’m not talking about your saving until the next big disaster that calls out for your help. I’m talking about the continuing crisis of homelessness, hunger and peace of mind.
A homeless person or a person facing eviction due to losing their job, the needs are ever there and ever needed for more money, more food, more of everything that is needed.
What are you going to do about that? Seems hopeless doesn’t it?
Its not…we look for a leader when we elect a president, that can take our problems and eradicate them. We know that increased taxes are needed, but it’s never enough, the hungry are hungry again.
But there are many who need help for a short time until they can get on their feet. Some take longer than others, some haven’t got the sense to get on their feet and stay on them. That’s why we have disability programs. But they are threatened by cuts in the countries budget or the states budget. You can’t say that you don’t want to have your taxes pay for these people because some of them are old, lame and/or crazy and God uses us to care for them.
Churches can only do so much and then they need more donations. All at a time that the call of Christianity is being overcome by self interests. No one has time for God anymore. Do you?
NOW HEAR THIS!!!
I am calling on all of you who read my words, who like them, who strives to find understanding…to MOVE yourself to make a difference. The churches don’t need you near as much as I do. Near as much as YOU DO!
Are you reading me here? Are you seeing the need for fast action? We don’t have much time left…do you listen to the news…do you hear the predictions for the near future, made by sensible people, how the economy is failing fast and the threat of Martial Law is feared within the next six months.
Are you joined up to a militia? Are you preparing for the tuff times ahead? I can say this, The Mormon Church members are advised to store a years supply of food for when the dookie hit’s the fan.
The time is now and you can make a difference. Depending on your contributions size and regularity to a fund I want to establish for the true Christians in our own back yard. A fund that can be used to prepare for tomorrow, and help us today.
I call on every one who professes Jesus as Lord and Savior, to join with me in this effort. Are you an actor…can you give more? Are you an author…can you give more? Are you making good money at a good job…can you give more? Are you a foundation created to do good…can you give more? Are you just a poor christian that wants to help…I love you for it.
Yes, I know every Tom Dick and Harry preaching the word are asking for your financial help and it makes you sick.
Then get sick, but GROW-UP! And know that the world requires financial support-for clothing, food and expenses, and a Teacher of the Word is meant to earn their living from the preaching of the Word.
Call it a tithing, a donation, a salary, a love gift, but don’t call it missing. You can say you don’t need me to show you the way of the Bible but “prophecy is for believers.”
I have the gift, do you? Then answer me this – why are you even reading this? You should already know of God’s doctrine called: The Way. Do you know it? You don’t. and while your small tithe is like getting blood from a turnip, it does next to nothing in the bigger picture. It supports your church is all, and that’s just one doctrine among the over 34,000 different christian doctrines being given in the christian churches of the world.
That’s chaos among the people that want to know Christ Jesus for real. If you think you can send me ten dollars and call it good then you are sadly mistaken. I’d spend it and it would be gone. With nothing to show for it. But “if” I received it regularly along with others who would contribute in size or regularity, then I’d be able to do something so that you could be proud of it and have something that can benefit yourself and the other christians in our country.
But to do that I NEED all of you to join with me make contributions and follow me in my blogs teaching. Yet what do I have? A lot of you saying, ‘I like this article.’ check! And not one of you has asked a question of faith, become a follower, or made a financial contribution to help ease my needs financial; and I can’t pass the hat or set it down in front of you while you read one of my articles.
You really are a poor excuse for a christian. Yes you are. Who are you!?! You work…I’m unemployed; you live in a house…I live on the streets; you give to the homeless…I write articles and ask for a donation.
Your thoughtful but not really very caring. Family, friends and Jesus are suppose to mean something to you. You would help a family member or a friend, and you probably give a little at church. I don’t know anyone who gives the Biblically standard of 10% in their tithes. And that’s probably more for show than sincerity.
If you do give at your church, your church should be able to do more, but does it? No, the fact is, the more you give to your church the more you cause it to grow and yet it benefits you very little.
Did they reveal the teaching of The Way? Did it give you an answer to your question of faith that gave understanding and direction?
I know the answer is no. because I know that God purposely hid the teachers of The Way until they were to be revealed in these end-times. (see Isaiah 30:20-26)Your churches are still stuck in the teaching of evangelism and Harm you when they try to tell you what you need to do to walk as a true christian. I KNOW THIS!!!!
Prove me wrong! I wish you could but you don’t know of The Way do you? No harm done “IF” you can admit it and MOVE yourself to learn it. But are you? You can read of it in my articles; not all of them, some of my articles are on other topics, but most are on The Way.
But do you like them? Then do more than just checking the Like-Box, join with me and follow my teachings in the Word, and help me to make a difference by sharing with me the financial burden of establishing a fund that I would like to be able to use for all of our benefits, especially of my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.
You can do so through my pay-pal account under my e-mail url firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also e-mail me any questions you have or share them with the readers here in the comment section so that they can see the answers that are given in The Way. Or you can just say hi.
It’s up to you, but you knew that! It’s always been up to you….

When I ask a preacher or pastor, “What is the Way?” and clarifying that it is the Doctrine of God; I get answers of – Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life; we need to follow his commandments, repent and be baptized.
All true but all wrong! They are wrong because they omit the instructions of How we fulfill them.
Repentance is to change ones mind, but to what do we change it to? Baptism is still widely believed to be of water, though it is to be in spirit. And even if many believe the baptism of spirit comes later, the fact is, spiritual baptism is spontaneous with being saved and not with water baptisms.
Finally, yes Jesus is the way the truth and the life, but how do we come to God through Jesus?
You say we accept him as our Lord and savior, but how do we do that? What’s that you say- we follow his commandments… Which are? What?
And here it is that the many, many different “Christian” doctrine teaching churches proliferate.
Why is it that most every pastor doesn’t know of the instruction found in God’s Doctrine called the Way? Have you ever heard tell of it? I haven’t and yet there are several verses that refer to it.
Let’s look in the book of Acts. First off, acts 16:17 we read of the girl that is demon possessed and able to “predict” events, she shouts: “These men are servants of the most high God, who are telling you the way to be saved.”niv
Granted the emphasis on the way is not capitalized and it can easily be thought of as the way is what they teach. Not in itself a title word with a capital W. yet think, if I was to say I can teach y6ou the way of the alphabet, you would know I had to teach you 26 letters A thru Z; and when I was done you would know the alphabet, and so would everyone else.
Yet for the sake of argument, I will allow this mention of the way to be a referral to the teachings of what the apostles taught, and not be thought of as a title of a set of instructions. I will do the same for the way (not capitalized) of the next verse found in 18:25-26 where a Jew named Apollos “taught about Jesus accurately with a thorough knowledge of the scriptures.”niv but only knew the baptism of John, which was of water, not the baptism of Jesus which is by spirit.
But in verse 19:9 we read that Paul taught about the kingdom of God and about the baptism of Jesus, but was rejected. Where, “those who refused to believe, publicly maligned the Way.” (capital W.) No longer a representation of a scriptural knowledge about Jesus, but clearly a title of the knowledge it takes to believe in Jesus.
Look to verse 20:21 and see that Paul’s teaching was: “to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.”niv
Where the Way, (capital W), shows how to “turn to god in repentance and How to “have faith in our Lord Jesus.”
Then verse 22:4 shows Paul referring to Gods teaching as “this Way”, (capital W.) and in 24:14 Paul says to Governor Felix, “…I admit that I worship the God of our fathers as a follower of the Way, (capital W.), which they call a sect.”niv
Interestingly he clarifies that he, “strive(s) always to keep my conscience clear before God and man.”niv another indicator of the Way of God’s Doctrine…first: turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus…second: to strive to keep a clear conscience. To which governor Felix who was well acquainted with the Way, closed the preceedings. Verse 24:22
In conclusion, every preacher should have an understanding in the Way. This understanding should reveal God our heavenly Father through repentance and establish our faith in Jesus and allow us to a know a clear conscience. So you see, all those responses given by the pastors…Jesus is the way the truth and the life; or repent and be baptized ; or follow the commandments, are all lacking the instruction and understanding of how to accomplish them and know God, have faith in Jesus and have a clear conscience; all in a teaching that every church is to follow.
Not a clear conscience based on a stubborn belief in Jesus atonement but a clear conscience based on living in the Way. A knowledgeable and assured faith that believes rightly.
A Way supported by verse and spiritual growth. Understand…Faithfulness to believe in Jesus is a fruit of the spirit and not an inclination of our will when we first accepted Jesus as taught to us. Many Christians are led to think that all they need to do is believe by faith before they ever substantiate their faith or prove the evidence thereof.
You, if I have my way, you will learn to support your faith with the substance and evidence of the Love of God that comes through the Truth in Jesus. (see Heb. 11:1 and Gal. 5:6)
