Don't Cry, You Are My Little Girl

Below is a list I found written by my mother.  She was reminiscing of her childhood and remembering the hard times of her grade school years.  She was a child of the Great Depression, born in 1929.  Her parents were farmers and lived in Nebraska.  She was the youngest of 9 children.  Her older siblings were teenagers when she was born.  Here is the list: 
She began school in the fall of 1935.  Her mom and dad took a trip to California shortly after she started school in the little one room school house, not too far from their farm.  They left the older children in charge while they went to look for work that was much more plentiful in California.  Her mother found a position of a cook for a wealthy family and her dad worked at a nearby Dairy farm and did handiman work for the people her mom worked for.  The oldest girl came out in the Spring and began working for the same people and then her folks went back to Nebraska to put in the crops on the farm. 
That Summer 3 of my mom's older sisters went to California and got jobs.  In the late Summer her mother told her dad that it was not proper for unmarried daughters to live and work by themselves and that they needed to go out there.  So right before my mother began the 2nd second grade they packed up all the of kids and went West to California. 
They found a place in Redondo Beach and my mother was sent to a huge school there.  It was the most people my mother had seen in her whole life.  She was so overwhelmed by it all.  She said the school was built on a hill and had a covered play area underneath the building.  She said she felt like a scared little rabbit and during recess would go all the way back under the building and just watch all the children playing.  Thus began my mother's many moves in her early grade school days.

In the next 2 years my mother moved 10 times, changing schools each time.  During this time her father would go back to Nebraska for lengths of time to work the farm and try and sell it but farms were not selling fast during the Depression.  Her mom stayed in California as the weather was warmer and better for her health.  She had struggled with serious bouts of sickness off and on since the birth of her 7th child in 1922.  They moved so much in California because of not having a lot of money.  Sometimes having a place of their own and then her dad leaving back for the farm and her mom and younger siblings moving in with the older kids for a while in different places. 
My mom's worst year was her 4th grade year.  She had spent the summer in Nebraska and started 4th grade there.  They then went out to California and lived with her mother, brother and sister.  Then her mom, my grandmother, fell very ill and mom went to live with her older single sisters who had a small house they rented and worked in a cookie factory in Burbank.  Grandma was so ill that she could not take care of my mom.  Mom was 9 years old and was without her folks as her dad was back taking care of the farm in Nebraska.
Mom hated school.  She was a shy child and over weight.  She got so behind, changing schools so much and the teachers she got that year were not patient with her.  She was seated in the back with another failing little boy and ridiculed by the other kids.  One day in class she laid her head down on her desk and began to cry.  Little did she know that at that moment the 5th grade teacher, Mrs. McGuire, was walking down the hall and looked into her class room and saw her crying.  She was moved with compassion and went directly to the Principal's office and asked to have mom in her class.  The principal told Mrs. McGuire he would let her take mom into her class but she would have to prepare her 4th grade lessons and not get extra pay for the extra work that she would have to put in.  She said she would do it gladly.  She then went back to mom's class, walked down the aisle to her desk, lifted up her head in her hands and said, "Don't cry anymore, you are going to be my little girl."  She helped mom with her things and took her into her classroom.
Mom flourished in Mrs. McGuire's class and finished the 4th grade year and then had her for 5th and 6th grade years also.  Those were wonderful years for my mom as Mrs. McGuire was a wonderful teacher and really thought a lot of my mom.  My grandmother recovered from her serious sickness.  They had found out from a family member, Dr. Hromadke, that she had diabetes.  Dr. Hromadke told her that she would die if she did not take insulin.  She told him, she would not die because God had promised her that she would live to raise her children and she still had a little girl to raise.  She prayed about the doctor's diagnosis and the need to take insulin and God told her that if she ate a good diet and stayed away from sugar and too much fat that He would preserve her life to raise my mom.  A wonderful miracle was worked on my grandmother's behalf and she recovered from large absses on her legs and regained her strength.  My mom was able to have her mom again and her dad sold the farm and they were all family again, living in the house that her dad bought with the money he got from the sale of the farm.

A number of years later, my mom who was married and had my 2 older sisters, looked up her grade school teacher, Mrs. McGuire, to thank her for all she did for her.  Mom asked her what motivated her that day to do what she did.  Mrs. McGuire told her that she was a Christian and had gone through a terrible time when she was 9 years old when her mother died.  She said, "I knew your mom was very, very ill and you needed someone to love you and help you."

Every time I tell this story about my mom, I am moved to tears.  At that time my mom was like an orphan in a certain aspect because of her mother's illness and her father being gone a lot taking care of the farm.  I can't help but think of this passage of scripture in James and how Mrs. McGuire followed it and blessed my mother:

"Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.  My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism. 2 For if a man comes into your assembly with a gold ring and dressed in fine clothes, and there also comes in a poor man in dirty clothes, 3 and you pay special attention to the one who is wearing the fine clothes, and say, “You sit here in a good place,” and you say to the poor man, “You stand over there, or sit down by my footstool,” 4 have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil motives? 5 Listen, my beloved brethren: did not God choose the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him? 6 But you have dishonored the poor man. Is it not the rich who oppress you and personally drag you into court? 7 Do they not blaspheme the fair name by which you have been called?"  James 1:27 - 2:7

Why is it important for a believer in Jesus Christ to understand the word 'Spin'?

Spin: noun: 
a. A usually ingenious twist.
b. A special point of view, emphasis, or interpretation presented for the purpose of influencing opinion.

Religious Spin:  noun:
Unwitting, spiritual flavored, half- truth dogma, that is subconsciously, and naturally derived from mixing spiritual, foundational Truth with earthly personal, organizational, or genealogical agenda, which is used by Satan to effectually neutralize, and destroy believers (IE. (Matt.7:23) 'you (believers in Jesus Christ) who practice lawlessness(Sin)').

One example of Spin:  A man can actually marry his neighbors wife under certain circumstances, because God is a loving God, the God of second chances, and His precepts are based on fairness for all.

Satan accomplishes this type of deception, because he appears as an angel of Light(Jesus/Truth) and tries to lure us(who, in such cases always gravitate to convenience, and worldliness in all matters of desire) with Spin.

Mat 5:32  but I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the reason of immorality, causes her to practice adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman practices adultery.

Luk 16:18 "Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another practices adultery, and he who marries one who is divorced from a husband practices adultery.

If the immoral wife does not repent, then the man is allowed to divorce her(but she does actually remain his 'wife' until he dies), and add on another wife, but it is never allowed for a woman to add on another husband. 

So the man that divorces the immoral wife, and marries another, actually has two wives, and anyone marrying the divorced wife will be practicing adultery, because marriage is permanent, that's why Jesus says any man that divorces his wife 'causes' her to practice adultery, because in most cases she will find, or will be found by another and get married. But the man who divorces the unrepentant immoral wife is not held accountable for causing her to practice adultery because she is already immoral.

The Real Truth is: Any man that is married to a divorced woman is practicing adultery, and he will be judged as an adulterer, he will not make it to the next world, in fact he is not known by the true Jesus Christ, if he does not repent, he is believing  in a false form of the true Jesus Christ.  That's why Jesus says:  'I never knew you, depart from me, you who practice lawlessness'.

Jesus said this because marriage, once pledged, and espoused, is permanent, and can not be dissolved, it can only be abandoned by death.  This is the Order that Jesus created in the Garden from the beginning. Man was not created for the Woman, but the Woman was created for the Man. But Spin would have us believe otherwise.

And there are many other examples of Spin.  But if we focus on Jesus' words alone we will recognize Spin for what it is, lies.

1Jo 3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.

1Jo 3:3 And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

1Jo 3:4 Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.

1Jo 3:5 You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.

1Jo 3:6 No one who abides in Him practices sin; no one who practices sin has seen Him or knows Him.

The only Way is to Repent, and practice the Truth.  Those that are sincerely mistaken, and are affected by the Spin, are tolerating sin, and they must repent,  but you must come out from them, and be a 'called out one', and walk with those who are putting to death the deeds of the flesh daily, and you will live.

When it comes to matters of Religion, no one ever purposely tries to be wrong, every soul is either sincerely correct, or sincerely mistaken, there is no other state, and there are no excuses.  This is why there are True Followers of Christ, and false followers of Christ.  

True followers of Christ are a peculiar people, a special people. A transformed people that seek foolishness, weakness, humiliation, poverty, and death in this world. There hearts are in the next world. They are a people that do not build Churches, Organizations, and Colleges. This is the difference between Worldliness, and Spirituality.

What happens to a damaged ship, when the people in the front are throwing things out to make it lighter, and the people in the back are pulling things back in.

Jesus Himself warned us that there would be those(false believers) who say that He(Jesus) is the Christ, and they(false believers) would mislead many(cause many to be mistaken).

In fact there are many false 'Jesus Christs' and many false prophets that are administering them.  This is the true meaning  of  'Apostasy'.

The Sins of my Father

This past year has put into focus something that I was a little fuzzy on for 26 years. February this year marked the 26th year after I had a dream that went like this: I was walking into the front room of a house and when I got inside I saw my mother standing there. She was in the blossom of health and looked to be about 35 years old. I was in shock as my mother had died 4 years prior at the age of 58 and was very ill from liver failure. I said to her, " Mom, how can you be here. I saw you dead in the casket!" She very solemnly said, "They tried to pierce my hands for the sins of my father but I said, 'No!' and rose up out of that casket." I was puzzled by her response but I then with great excitement told her I was getting married. Her face lit up, she hugged me and kissed me on my cheek and said, "I am so happy for you! Come see what I am going to wear to your wedding." We stepped into the next room and she was wearing a beautiful, floor length silver gown. I stared at her in awe and began to think to myself, "Since mom is wearing this silver dress, my wedding colors should be red with silver accents instead of red with gold accents." Then I stepped into the next room and my mom was gone and I was planning my wedding. I thought, "I have to make all the arrangements of the cake, flowers, and invitations and I only have 2 weeks!" When I woke up out of the dream, I was puzzled by it all except the part of me getting married as I was single and really wanted to be married and loved the part of mom being so happy for me!

As time unfolded it became clear to me that this truly was a prophetic dream given to me by God. I was puzzled by the wedding colors as I had never thought of using red and silver. When I would day dream of my future wedding, I would think about mixed Spring colors and daisies. The year before I met my husband, I came to the understanding that the wedding colors of red with silver was a Russian Wedding theme and in Russian royalty it was customary for the mother of the bride to wear a long silver dress. That year I knew it was the year I was to meet my husband. At the end of that year I went on a 2 week missions trip to Russia. In January I signed up to join with a group that was going in July. Two weeks after I signed up and put my money down, I began to get to know my future husband. He was not going on the trip but he was attending the church that I worked at. He worked for a party event planner. When an event was over, she would give him the left over flowers that were still beautiful and he would bring them into the church office for everyone to enjoy. When he would bring in the flowers , I would start to chat with him. In July of that year, 6 days before I left for Russia, he called me up and asked me out. We dated for a year and then got engaged the following July and were married December 14th. Our relationship started right before my 2 weeks missions trip and we were married 2 weeks into December, so the closing statement of the dream made sense of only having 2 weeks!

After all that was fulfilled I still puzzled over the meaning of the phrase, "they tried to pierce my hands for the sins of my father."

This year I have come to the conclusion that my mother was speaking of her father. How I came to this understanding was through 2 gifts of information. One, my sister gave me my parents letters that they wrote to each other when they were separated for a month, as she was visiting her father and other family, when they were dating shortly before they married. Two, my niece sent me some family history about my grandfather's father and grandparents. These 2 pieces of information filled in the gaps in what I already knew about my grandfather.

My grandfather was a very moral man and hard working, even called himself a Christian but according to the testimony of my mother, he did not know God. My grandparents on my mother's side were both dead by the time I was born. All I knew of them were what my mother told me and my siblings, through stories of her life. My mother was the youngest of 9 kids and a five year tag along at that, so her parents were in their 40s when she was born. She had the benefit of being the last child and spending time with her folks when life was much slower as they no longer lived on a farm and had a big family to take care of. Her mother had lots of time to tell her stories of her younger life when she was single, the events that lead to her marriage and her early days of child rearing and busy farm work.

My grandmother was a godly person and had spent time seeking God and wanting to know Him as a young person. She didn't want to just join the Brethern Church that they attended when she was 16 and say she was saved. She wanted to know God and know that she was saved. So she spent many nights praying by her bed. The night she gave up after not experiencing anything and told the Lord she would leave it in His hands, she layed across her bed and fell asleep. God gave her a vision of the wind blowing very hard and then she was on a sea of peace and she heard him say, "Lo I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Those were the words that Jesus told his disciples before he was taken up into heaven to comfort them. He would be sending them the Holy Spirit to comfort and empower them. 

Through Grandma's life she was comforted and was empowered by the Holy Spirit. She experienced supernatural healing and protection at different times. She gave up her own plans to follow God's, except in her choice of a mate. She found herself attracted to a young man 4 years older than her in their little Brethern Church that her family attended. He was handsome and outgoing and had the attention of several girls. He liked grandma as a friend, but was infatuated with a beautiful, but shallow girl, who strung him along making him think she would be serious about him but was really looking for a rich man and grandpa was not rich. Grandma stood in the wings of this situation and would go out with Grandpa when he couldn't get a date with his favorite. Grandma's parents were godly people and they did not like Grandpa's behavior towards Grandma. They knew his family, as was common in small farming communities. They knew his father didn't treat him well, spoiling him one time and then harsh and cruel another. They knew he was raised in dysfunction. His mother was a sweet Christian lady but was an invalid due to an illness that left her weak and unable to completely recover. His father was harsh and abusive at times. Knowing all this and seeing how he was treating their daughter like a second string girl, made them give Grandma strong counsel not to get involved with him. They knew he had a problem that ran very deep and didn't want their daughter hurt by him. She didn't listen to the objective and honest counsel her parents gave her and continued on in the relationship. 

Through a series of events Grandpa married Grandma. His favorite girl got engaged to someone else and grandma, his second string, started ignoring him too and started going out with other guys. He got to feeling really bad and losing control of the situation so his fix was to propose to Grandma. Grandma was beside herself with joy, because she had set her heart on him long ago and she was going to prove her parents wrong about him and she would be that influence that would change him and he would be free of his troubles. 

Part of Grandpa's trouble was that he felt intimidated by Grandma, not in her social standing or looks but in her relationship to God. Grandma's best friend, Libby, had had some heartfelt talks with Grandpa and he opened up and said that he was troubled because Grandma had had a deeper religious experience than he. The truth of it was that Grandma had a close walk with God and he did not. She had experienced super natural power in her life and he had not. God and what He thought and desired, was more important to her. What God thought and desired was much lower on the list for him. Grandma thought that all Grandpa needed was some love and encouragement and they would be blissfully happy, both on the same page spiritually.

Grandpa's spiritual state was a choice that he made and could not be made by anyone else, no matter how nice or spiritual they were. He had to come to that choice all on his own. Because he knew about God, but did not know or have fellowship with God, he became powerless to over come sin. He had deep seated, generational sin of anger and in his anger he sinned. When he became angry he hurt people really, really bad. He would sling cruel insults, destroy treasured things, cause physical pain and injury. This was so bad that he told his children as they got older if they seen him get mad to run away from him as far as they could get. When he would cool down, he would feel bad about what he did. The first time Grandma saw this happen in their marriage, even before children, she said something died inside her. Her romantic dream that her love and their marriage could make him change. She realized that she had disregarded sound counsel and was going to pay for it the rest of her life. Thank goodness Grandpa was a moral man and was financially responsible but he would always be at odds with her on spiritual matters. There house was divided. He would attend church, but he didn't want the truths of God's kingdom to come against his choices. If he wanted to hate someone and wouldn't forgive them, better not tell him that God said that He would not forgive those who would not forgive others. Or better not tell him if he borrowed money from his kids and then kept it when he had it later and would not give it back, was stealing. When the conviction of his sin came upon him, he became angry and did not change.

Grandpa's father was an angry and cruel man. I did not know the source of his anger until now. I knew of Grandma's stories of her father-in-law and they were not good. He was very cruel at times and could be selfish and very harsh. Now, I know thanks to my niece's family research. Our great, great grandfather was physically abusive and his wife had problems with sexual immorality and they split up when he was young. So he grew up with pain and dysfunction and he just passed his anger onto his son by unfair punishment and feeling bad and over indulging him later. He was not good to his invalid wife as he should of been. This caused terrible conflict in my grandfather growing up and it made him angry. He had an insane temper that he could not shake.

My mother grew up with this situation in her father, but she did have a godly mother. When mom was a young teenager her mom told her. Don't do what I did. I do love your father and love you children very much. You were innocent in this choice of mine and I tell you these things to save you the grief I have endured. Grandmother was unequally yoked. She wanted mom to marry a man who was making choices to obey God and wanted to know God personally not just attend church and say he is a Christian. A person that was a Christian in name only does not have the power of the Holy Spirit and they are left ineffective to overcome deep seated sin and cannot be used as a conduit of His Spirit to bring godly influence on those around them. Grandma also told mom to listen to her family, that loved her and loved God concerning who she was choosing to marry. Mom took this adivice to heart and did marry someone like that. She strove to obey God by being honest, admitting sin when it happened, humbling herself as her mother did and admitting her mistakes. She also strove to confront others of their sin to try and help them find repentance and a lasting and effective relationship with God. Some people responded with repentance and were benefited. Other times, she was met with anger from people who did not want to repent from practicing sin and they were in the churches being Christians in name only. She was hurt by them and persecuted at times, with cold shoulders, mean looks, and putting her in a bad light when talking about her behind her back, but she never let that stop her. 

After Grandma died, Grandpa lived another 8 years. My folks went to live near Grandpa is his later years. Mom followed in her mother's steps of being honest with her dad even if it meant his wrath. She knew his very salvation depended on it. Grandpa hated someone and he had hated them for years. Mom told him the truth that if he did not forgive this person, he would not be forgiven and he would not go to heaven, even though he was going to church and saying he was saved. In the last few months of Grandpa's life he let his hatred go and he found right relationship with God. Mom woke from a dream one morning that ended with "To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord" She jumped up to check on her dad and he had fallen outside on the lawn from stroke that took his life 2 days later.

So my mother's words in the dream that I spoke of at the beginning was from God. She said "They tried to pierce my hands for the sins of my father but I told them, 'No!' and I rose up out of that casket." It told me that the sins of her father, being a Christian in name only, is rendering a person ineffective by not having the power of the Holy Spirit in their life and a person has to say, No, to that and do what God commands, no matter the cost and they will have the power of the resurrected Lord in their life and because of that they will be in the resurrection unto eternal life and be with Him in heaven forever. 

For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 16:25

Interesting article concerning aspects of Feminism.

Women Initiate Divorce Much More Than Men, Here's Why
By Douglas LaBier Ph.D.   Psychology Today   Posted Aug 28 2015
Wives report more dissatisfaction with their marriages than their husbands.  
Some new data about divorce and non-marital breakups contains an unexpected finding, and I think it underscores the fact that we're in the midst of an ongoing evolution in what people want and seek in their romantic-relationships.
The study, based on a survey of over 2000 heterosexual couples, found that women initiated nearly 70% of all divorces. Yet there was no significant difference between the percentage of breakups initiated by women and men in non-marriage relationships.
How to explain? I find that these data are consistent with what I and others have seen clinically. When men and women seek couples therapy and then subsequently divorce; or, when either partner seeks individual therapy about a marriage conflict that ends in divorce, it’s often the woman who expresses more overt conflict and dissatisfaction about the state of the marriage. On the other hand, the man is more likely to report feeling troubled by his wife’s dissatisfaction, but pretty much "OK" with the way things are; he's content to just lope along as time passes.
In contrast, I find that younger couples – who are more likely to form non-marital but committed relationships — experience more egalitarian partnerships to begin with. When their relationship crumbles beyond repair, both experience that disintegration. Both are equally likely to address it – and part, if it can’t be healed.
These clinical observations are consistent with what the study’s lead author, Michael Rosenfeld, suggests — that women may be more likely to initiate divorces because the married women reported lower levels of relationship quality than married men. In contrast, women and men in non-marital relationships reported equal levels of relationship quality. Rosenfeld said his results support the feminist assertion that some women experience heterosexual marriage as oppressive or uncomfortable.
He adds, "I think that marriage as an institution has been a little bit slow to catch up with expectations for gender equality. Wives still take their husbands’ surnames, and are sometimes pressured to do so. Husbands still expect their wives to do the bulk of the housework and the bulk of the childcare. On the other hand, I think that non-marital relationships lack the historical baggage and expectations of marriage, which makes the non-marital relationships more flexible and therefore more adaptable to modern expectations, including women’s expectations for more gender equality."
A very interesting article, and here are some aspects sparked by this article, and also the underlying theme:

3. To practice deceit.
Synonyms: lead on, delude, cozen, betray, lead astray, misinform, mislead, victimize
Antonyms of the word: Fantasy;... Actuality, Fact, and Reality.
Conclusion: Basis for underlying Theme; Harlotry, and the resulting Feminism, that has been created, enhanced, and propagated by Satan.
Men are predisposed to Actuality.  Women are predisposed to Fantasy.
Both atmospheres have their own scope and purpose, and also are essential ingredients of Harmony.  Love balances the equation, and the result is Duty, Honor, and Nobility.  Which creates a fully functional Family.
But both Actuality, and Fantasy create an inherent vulnerability,  this is why God established the Order, to protect the family from Satan's schemes. Which are age old, and can be traced all the way through history to the beginning.

Speak the Truth to One Another

Eph 4:25 Therefore, laying aside falsehood, SPEAK TRUTH EACH ONE of you WITH HIS NEIGHBOR, for we are members of one another.
In order for there to be Forgiveness, Rewards (Gifts), and Power, there must be Sanctification.
This is the solution to all the questions that today's Christians are asking. But why is it so hard for us to achieve this solution? 
In order for us to understand the answer to this question, we must understand what has happened to the Faith in general.
If I am trying to give something away for free, then there is no hard-sell involved, there is no reason to push it, I am simply just trying to give it away. I do not need to worry about losing something, or not making a sale, in short I have nothing to lose, because I am giving it away for free.
But if I am selling something, then it becomes something different altogether. If I create religious financial agenda, then I need to support it, so I must sell it to those who would believe in it. In other words, one who is selling something, must accommodate the one who is buying. In short, no one is going to buy anything from someone who they perceive as a jerk, or is 'unkind' or 'unloving'.
Since the first century after Christ, men have been trying to fuse the Greco-Roman false religious system with true Christianity, and they were successful to an extent, and all of the various false-christs have come from this fusion, and the format is always the same as it was in antiquity.
In fact the apostles warned this was going to happen, and were trying to counter it whenever they could. But because the Greco-Roman culture has always been religious, immoral, selfishly ambitious, and self-serving, they (The Apostles) had quite a hard time trying to keep false prophets from dominating the common believers with the Greco-Roman false system.
Think about it, if I am trying to sell you something, I am going to act like a salesman, I am going to try and accommodate you in every way I can think of, because my ultimate goal is to make the sale, because I have an agenda. It doesn't take rocket science to figure out what has happened to us.
There are many scriptures in the Bible that mention false prophets trying to sneak in like sheep and lure people away with falsehood so that they can dominate, and feed on the sheep. Jer. 14:14, Lam 2:14, Eze 13:9, Eze 22:28, Matt 7:15, Matt 24:11, Matt 24:24, Luke6:26, 2Cor 2:17, 1John 4:1, 2Peter 2:1-3, Jude 1:4, Rev 2:2, Rev 2:14,15.
These things that I am talking about is why Jesus said: 'you cannot serve God and money', and also: 'freely you have been given, now freely give'. You see, we do not need Temples, and Cathedrals, and Churches, Colleges, and hired 'leaders' in order to understand what has happened to us because 'they' are and were the problem all along.
That's why they have to push 'false-grace' to the believers in order to accommodate them into the false system. Which begs the question: What is 'false-grace'?
In order for the false prophets to accommodate the religious, spoiled rotten, immoral, selfishly ambitious, self-serving culture, they have to purvey, and propagate false-grace. False grace has basically three components: 1. Forgiveness without Repentance. 2. Rewards (Gifts) without Obedience. 3. Power without Sanctification.
The first two are easy to purvey in a socialistic culture like ours, where people hate accountability, and discipline in general. But they have real trouble with the third one, and make a myriad of excuses to cover the Light that it sheds on the false system.
False-grace works great with the Syncretism that has followed the false religious system from antiquity.
Those who would Capture, Dominate, and Feed on the common believers are in reality the 'Nicolaitans' of old, which in fact is just a 'English name' that the translators chose not to translate from the original three Greek words Nikos-Laos-Ton, which actually means: Dominators (Conquerors) of the Common Believers (Laity). In other words those who dominate the common people with false authority, or rather clergy, which Christ said that their version of it must not exist with the true believers.
They (false prophets) are also the ones who 'have gone the way of Balaam, who was a Priest for Hire, and a false prophet, whose end result was the destruction of the people through licentiousness, and immorality.
Those who were the 'Nicolaitans', and those who had gone the way of Balaam, were actually the first century beginning of what would later be called 'The Roman Catholic Church', Practicing the very things that Jesus said the false prophets and false teachers would practice.
There are two main Messianic aspects that describe true believers, equal, and free.
Luther pointed out many negative aspects about the false church, but he was only scratching the surface, and eventually wound up banging his head on it until his demise.
But what he did not realize is that the entire Greco-Roman false religious system was dominating the whole culture, and it still does today. Practicing a religion of financial agenda, false authority, and licentiousness in all of the religious organizations that came from the primary one, The Roman Catholic Church. Even Luther did not realize the scope of the deception, or how the system would twist him into just another false Icon.
One day Jesus was sitting atop the Mount of Olives and His disciples came to Him privately, and He was telling them, 'see to it that no one misleads you'--
Mat 24:5 "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many.
Now many translators would have us believe from this verse (because of their spacing, and punctuation, which in fact was not introduced until about 500 years after Christ) That we should probably see a whole bunch of people running around saying they are Jesus Christ.
But if you read the verse in the way it was intended to be read, you will see that it is Christ's direct reference to Apostasy. What He was saying is, there won't be a bunch of people running around saying they are Jesus, but there will be a lot of false prophets that are saying Jesus is the Christ and leading many people astray with their false teachings.
I mean seriously, how many people have you seen running around saying they are Jesus? Anybody who did that would be laughed out of the county.
Or do we think that Jesus was actually telling His own Disciples to watch out and don't be deceived by people running around saying they are Jesus?
No, this is a direct reference to Apostasy, just like He goes on to say:
Mat 24:24 "For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.
Mat 24:25 "Behold, I have told you in advance.
The Greek word which is translated 'false Christ' is 'Psuedochristos', and its primary meaning is 'false Christ' or 'false version of Christ'. Remember He said they would come in His name (Jesus Christ) but they would be false prophets leading 'many' astray, or 'leading' them into error.
Many false versions of Jesus Christ, and many false Prophets of the false versions of Jesus Christ is what we are seeing today in all the religious organizations, which are in the false format that has come all the way from antiquity.
What is the answer to all of this? Jesus said:
Jhn 14:21 "He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him."
Jhn 14:22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, "Lord, what then has happened that You are going to disclose Yourself to us and not to the world?"
Jhn 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.
Jhn 14:24 "He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's who sent Me.
In God's economy, there is no room for 'false grace'. God's economy is: Forgiveness with Repentance, Rewards (Spiritual Gifts) with Obedience, and Power through Sanctification.
2Th 2:13 But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth.
Christian men be Equal, and Free. Home-Church, and Home-School your families in the Truth, be lead by the Holy Spirit of Truth, and .....
'Speak the Truth One to Another'.

The Logic of the Order

What is Order? In a Scientific sense, the basic natural progression of the physical universe is from Order to Chaos. This is the basic law of Thermodynamics. Essentially something exists, and operates , and then it does not.
In a Philosophical sense, Order is based on understanding, there can be no Order without intelligence, knowledge, and design. Essentially, Order does not exist without Wisdom, or rather, the ability to utilize true knowledge correctly. True Knowledge is Light, and Darkness is the absence of Light. Therefore existence itself is Ordered, and even the Chaotic appearing things in the universe are maintained by that Order, according to design.
In a universe with physical laws, everything physical Must obey the laws, or it cannot exist, and operate.
This is the basic Order, or 'Foundation' of the framework of the physical Universe that Jesus Christ Created, and He has determined that everything Physical, exists in this atmosphere of extremely high accountability. Essentially: Obedience results in existence. This is the Ultimate Order of the Universe, Physically, Philosophically, and Spiritually.
The result of obedience, is continued existence. The result of disobedience, is death, or rather the cessation of existence.
Jesus Christ gives us a picture of the order of the universe in His parable about the person that builds his house on rock, or sand. Essentially the difference between a person that orders his life according to Christ's spiritual laws, and the person that doesn't. Showing that the Spiritual Universe exists in an atmosphere of extremely high accountability, like the physical universe.
This is why Jesus Christ tells us that 'if we keep His commandments, then we truly do love Him, and we will be loved by the Father, and They will come and make Their abode with us.
The stipulation is obedience, not saying the correct words, or going to the right place, or swinging the incense orb in just the right way.
Here is an example of obedience, that will illustrate the True Jesus Christ in a way that He intended to be perceived:
The first Order of the Universe pertaining directly to Mankind was the Order of Male and Female, or rather 'Marriage'. The Woman was given to the Man as his Mate, and the only thing that could dissolve that would be the death of the Man. The Marriage is therefore permanent in God's Order.
This is why Jesus tells the 'Religious Leaders' that it is easier for Heaven and Earth to just 'disappear' than for one stroke of a letter of the Law to fail'. Then He gives an example of this mandate: Anyone that marries a divorced woman is practicing adultery. Why?
Because to Jesus, the man that is married to a divorced woman is having sex with his neighbors wife, because she still belongs to her first husband, and will until her first husband is dead. This is the true logic of the Order, and it cannot be changed or superseded.
This is a true example of the 'small door', or 'narrow way' that Jesus spoke of. So we see that true obedience would be for that man to remove himself from that adulterous marriage, and repent to Jesus and apologize publicly, and the Lord would forgive him for his adultery, and he would make it to heaven, otherwise he would be judged as an adulterer and sent to hell.
In order for Christ to come to us and make His abode with us, we must encourage and foster an atmosphere of high accountability, otherwise He will not be with us, and He will abase us, as He has done to all the false Religious Organizations.
Do not follow the false doctrines of the Organizations, follow the Logic of the Order of the True Jesus Christ.
