Why I will not “ice bucket” myself

Then he showed me the river of living water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb…Rev.22

1. I choose to follow Jesus: I am not a follower of men, pop culture, trends, fads or movements. I do not accept challenges given by those in allegiance to the kingdoms of this world.

2. I choose union with Jesus: I will not participate in the world’s unifying, social-bonding, group-hypnosis, peer-pressure, conformity-participation, mass rituals.

3. I choose obedience to the commands of Jesus: I will not obey the commands of the kings of the earth (the principalities, the powers the rulers, the spiritual forces of wickedness in high places).

4. I choose to love the Truth: The behavioral reasoning for this act, as well as the spiritual symbolism, implications and manifestations involved with this social ritual are deceptive and based on lies.

5. I choose not to participate in pagan ritual: Immersing self or bathing self with icy cold freezing water is an Eastern Orthodox pagan ritual for “cleansing self of sins”. It also looks like some kind of new age, “Age of Aquarius”, water-pouring ‘baptism’ ritual with possible “waters breaking /birth” or “shock” esoteric meaning that is NOT of Jesus Christ. Also I choose not to mimic torture: Ice water is used in occult trauma based mind control ritual abuse programming, which hurts people’s minds, bodies and souls.

6. I choose not to participate in occult ritual:  the Hexagram is a symbol of fire and water combining for satanic purposes. The triangle pointing up is fire (fire, fires, firing bullets, firing tear gas, Ferguson, MO) and the triangle pointing down is water (Ice bucket challenge). Both triangles combine in these simultaneous events.

7. I choose not to participate in the bold mocking of the throne of God and of the Lamb, but instead to love, reverence and honor my Lord and My God, my Savior and King. Then he showed me the river of living water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb..Rev.22

One master

Love the Lord your God with all your heart… and love your neighbor as yourself.  Luke 10:27

If The State or The Church tell me or suggest that I must look to them for salvation, I will disobey The State and The Church.

If The State or The Church tell me or suggest that I must be enemies with Iran or Muslims or anyone else, I will disobey The State and The Church.

 

Remembrance

And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” Luke 22:19

Every day we have union with You and with one another. Jesus we remember Your sacrifice for us, Your death. Every day we remember. Like You asked us to. You give Yourself to us, we partake of You; You are inside us now, Your death, Your life blood. Now we live Your sacrifice daily, now we give, as we follow You. Every day we eat your bread and drink your wine. Every word You speak is our food. Your very life is our food. We cannot forget Your love. We are filled up with You in loving remembrance and real-time fellowship-friendship of loving communion with You.

voluntary

The people will volunteer freely in the day of Thy power.. Psalm110

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses… Acts1:8

Going to baseball games (Masonic “philosophy of life” metaphor rituals) and football games (pagan “sex” metaphor ceremonies) is currently voluntary. Voting is voluntary. Going to Church is voluntary. Pledging allegiance to the flag is voluntary. Watching TV shows like the satanic “Superbowl halftime show” is voluntary.

What if they started coming around like they did in the 1st century, with mobile altars where you had to pledge allegiance and declare loyalty to say, the pope, or the USA, the president/king/dictator, the UN Charter, the Agenda 21, the global one world federation, Humanity, the Earth(Gaia), the gods, the new Earth Constitution (Global Law), the New Global Moral Commandments(Global Religion), or something like that?

What if tossing in the incense and saying, “ceasar is lord”, or something to that effect via modern means, was reinstated? What if this act proved a person’s committment to world peace and security? What if they said it proved allegiance to the “god” of the global government or global religion? What if it were required of every person, not voluntary? Are we prepared spiritually today, right now if need be, like they were in the first and second century Roman Empire?

The witnesses thru time since the giving of Christ’s promised Holy Spirit power, were volunteers. Because of love for Christ, they voluntarily chose to make their witness for Him. They voluntarily chose to say “no” to demonstrations of loyalty to this world system, and “yes” to demonstrations of loyalty to Christ Jesus. Their witness was voluntary, motivated by love. Their power to be witnesses was from the Holy Spirit.

Now you voluntarily choose to say ’no’ to demonstrations of loyalty to other gods and the kingdoms of this world. Now you voluntarily choose to demonstrate your love and loyalty to Christ and His Kingdom, which is not of this world.

That great cloud of witnesses from Hebrews 12:1 is not only a past event, describing only ancient saints from two thousand years ago.

How sweet that Jesus has spoken many words to us, and continues to speak to us through the Holy Spirit, to prepare us for our own part in the great drama. As you take your voluntary active and verbal stand for loyalty to Jesus Christ and His Kingdom, you become a witness. As a witness of Jesus Christ, you too become part of that great cloud.

is your church green yet?

“By the river on its bank, on one side and on the other, will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither and their fruit will not fail. They will bear every month because their water flows from the sanctuary, and their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing.” Ez. 47:12

A homeschool co-op class my child is taking is meeting at a Church building. As we were heading to the meeting room, I passed the “sanctuary” of the Church building. People were busy unpacking boxes, putting up greens, wreaths, decorations of all kinds.

The “sanctuary” room looked almost identical to the last Church business I attended. Old (dead) wood, 1950’s architecture, pews, carpet, “stage”, pulpit, drums, American flag, Christian flag, stained glass windows, hymnals, order of service, tax-deductible donation envelopes………….even that same musty old smell. It was almost like stepping back in time. It was a weird déjà vu.

The pastor’s wife was hanging decorations on the wall. She cheerfully said to me, “Yes things are really coming together here today! We are greening up the Church today! So is your Church green yet?”

JOY filled me! I raised my arms up, and with a smile I told proclaimed,

“I am always green!
I have the Spirit of Jesus living in me!”

Owned

“Thou ……..hast redeemed us to God by thy blood” Rev.5:9

…the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. Acts20:28

Owned.

You are not owned by the government. Or the UN. Or the various leaders and rulers of the NWO. You are not owned by The Church. You are not owned by the pope or any pastor. You are not owned by a religion. You are not owned by a political nation. You are not owned by The State. You are not owned by the money and whoever creates, owns and ‘lends’ the money. You are not owned by the corporations.  You are not owned by kings or any earthly leaders.

You are owned by God in Christ Jesus our Savior and Lord. You have been bought with a price: the precious blood of Christ.
You belong to Him.

No one else has ultimate jurisdiction or authority over you spiritually. No one else can lay claim to your soul (your mind, your will and your heart, which includes thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and allegiance.) You have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God’s beloved Son. This world system can no longer claim you. They no longer own you. They have no authority over you in all spiritual matters of ownership, identity, allegiance and worship.

this temporary internet fellowship

“Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied. 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” Jude 1:2-3

Guest Post By: Timothy LaVigne (Via Facebook)

By the time the powers that be pull the plug on what used to be an overtly Christian press, radio outreach and television ministry, the Gospel will have long been diluted and the music so convoluted that truth will barely be recognizable or missed. Oh we’ll miss the imagined freedom to preach and we’ll suffer withdrawal for a season as we are totally weaned off our dependency for buzz words, pretentious mantras and supposed religious and patriotic rights. Many restrictions will eventually alleviate us of our social media privileges. Blogs, free-lance articles and opinionated commentary will be systematically screened and we should expect to be fined, at first, to help harness our proclivity to call attention to sin and immorality. Judicial mandates will be levied in such a way so as to reduce open opposition to the change and will reduce what was once free speech to nothing more than a memory. I’m guessing some of us small time agitators who make waves or stir up small pockets of controversy are already gradually being neutered. It may appear we have a few thousand friends, fans and followers, say on facebook alone but is it realistic to believe that in most cases 90% of those we think are our friends are seriously inactive, critically indifferent or just void of an opinion altogether? I understand that man shall not live by facebook alone but still, why the seeming lack of even the mere, by the numbers traffic? Brethren, our days of interaction are numbered, our true friends are few and we will in due time be separated by laws yet to be initiated. Some are experiencing this in their local fellowships and in their own neighborhood. All that can be expected is to stay the course, be strong in the Lord and keep the faith once delivered to the saints.

Render unto Caesar!

Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and to God, the things which are God’s. ~ from Luke20, Mark12,Matt.22

(Give to the government the things which are the government’s, and to God, the things which are God’s.)

In Church this last Sunday, did the pastor preach against the abortion provisions of Obamacare? Did he preach against the Federal government’s war and killing in the middle east countries? Did he refrain from honoring and praising Church members who are military? Did he walk over to the US Flag which stands tall near the pulpit and take it down and throw it on the ground? Did he preach against drone strikes on innocent children in foreign countries? Did he preach about how the US Gov. is supporting and financing groups that kill Christians in the middle east? Did he preach against the brainwashing currently being promoted which encourages Christians to fear and support military war against Muslims instead of loving them like Jesus loves? Did he preach against this Obamacare mandated healthcare info storage/ RFID/ tracking computer chip wearable or insertable “device”?

Did he preach that our allegiance and obedience is to our Lord Jesus Christ alone and not to earthly kingdoms, nations and governments? Did he teach that we must always obey God over man, even if that “man” is the government? Was he clear to preach that our allegiance is to the kingdom of God which is not of this world? Did he mention that loyalty to Jesus’ kingdom will create serious conflict with family, society, nation and government? No? Why?

Because if his Church is registered with the government as an incorporated business “body” or business, he is obligated by law to not speak against any US Government policy or government propaganda, but to demonstrate support, compliance and obedience to the US Federal Government.

The physical insertable “computer chip” is not the mark of the beast. The mark of the beast is spiritual: the heart/mind love for self and this world, and the deeds that follow.

The mark is about allegiance, loyalty, love and worship– it is about to whom we acknowledge as our God, our trust, loyalty, love, allegiance and owner.

Through the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and His covenant with us, we belong to God. Not the government. That is why we are non-compliant with this chip thing. Not because it is the mark of the beast, but because we love Jesus Christ our Beloved Savior and want to show Him our love by demonstrating we know who owns us. We are already marked (or sealed) by HIM. We belong to Him.

Incorporated Churches belong to Caesar. So let the government have the Churches then! Let Caesar then be given what belongs to Caesar (the Incorporated Churches). But our bodies, minds, love, worship, actions, obedience, loyalty and allegiance belong to God, let us give ourselves wholly to Him.

Lofty words, published books, well attended conferences

Dear children, let us love one another not just with words and speech,
but in deed and truth. 1John3:18

deed=actions

Yes right words are important, yes truth is important
but so are deeds …….

Missing even 1 of those 3 will make a mess
and even cause people to be hurt.

Many Lofty words, claims of knowing truth, published books, well attended conferences, exclusive “invitation only” Theology clubs, popular Movements, superstar famous Christian Leaders…………. nice, but is there present, the fruit of the Spirit?

The Holy Spirit.

The Spirit of Jesus.

By our fruits (deeds) shall we be known.

Each tree is recognized by its own fruit….. by their fruit you shall know them.

Fruit of love.

Fruit of kindness.

Fruit of gentleness.

Fruit of courage in the face of fearful trials (a manifestation of faith).

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof”

(The power of God to manifest the deeds.)

These who deny the power thereof, do not just act religious and talk religious, and perhaps verbally deny the power of God….they deny it with their actions; there is no demonstration in them, of the power of God.

Which comes from the Holy Spirit of God.

……These who deny the power thereof…………. : 

From such turn away.

lots of little churches

and to the church in your house… Philemon1:2

What Church do I go to? I don’t. I don’t “go to” the ones on the corner with wood, stones, mortar, steeples, pews, lobbys, offices, classrooms, donation envelopes, ATMs, liturgies, confession boxes, “prayer rooms”, membership contracts, State-incorporation, power-tripping Clergy, Spirit-squashing Church traditions, mics, stages, sound systems, lighting systems and elevated pulpits.

But I am a part of lots of little churches, and we are all united; one flock, with one Shepherd.

What do my lots of little churches look like? Where are they located? Who are the leaders? Is there a liturgy or order of service? Do we meet on Sundays?

I had dinner out with J.; we are a little church. My friend K. came over and we sat in the living room; we are a little church.
My daughter and I spent time together; we are a little church. My daughter’s girl friend spent the evening at our kitchen table.
We talked for hours; the 3 of us are a little church. I chat with my blogger friends online, we are a little church. I chat
with many friends via email; we are lots of little churches. One Facebook friend came thru my city on her way across the country and
she stopped by for tea; we were a church of 2 sisters. On Skype, i meet up sometimes with 2 or 3 friends, we are a little church. I talk on the phone to one
dear sister who lives in another state, we are a little church.

I find the followers of Jesus all the time out in public. We stand there on the sidewalk together, we are a little street church. Out in the parking lot
with a girlfriend, we are a little church in the sunshine. I send a letter in the mail…. the postman delivers “love one another” to my far away friend.

P. comes over for dinner, we eat, share, cry, read scripture and pray. We hang out in the backyard sitting in lawn chairs near the vegetable garden, just being together. We are a little church every time he comes over.

My FB friend sends me an encouraging email. We are a little church thru the miles.

My little churches, “gatherings” really, happen wherever I happen to be with another saint, and we are sharing time together, and sharing encouragement together. Jesus is with us. The leader is the Holy Spirit and there is no clergy, no order of service or liturgy, there is no “Hierarchy”, no power- trips, no committees, no board and definitely no “proper Church clothes”. There is no required day.

There are only a few of us at a time, with Jesus, together with one another. We are a little church in my house.  When we communicate with one another in any way, we are together and we are a little church. One body, one Spirit. Lots of little churches.
