For.....A Theological Rethink
|When church becomes (Caesar's Throne) a
office' and salvation is a free-for-all who have a christmas tree, send monies to the poor or shower the
community with chocolate eggs mid-year, it's time to
rethink your theology.
To even endeavour to connect taxation with tithing (and
tithe with NT) is a square peg in a round hole project.
But to put such a rope around the leg of a NT saint is
fraud in your face......click.
James tells us to be doers of the words of Jesus the
Christ not just hearers who end up deceived and hell
This scripture relates to the individual person and the
saving of that ones soul, surely good advice and it's a
beautiful sight to observe people walking in the truth
But just as most in today's - church - world twist
scripture to suite their self designated lifestyles even
so they very rarely believe what Yahweh says and display
this to all by their teachings and quotes.......click.
Tithing is no doubt a 'Whore Church' belief which denies
the wonder filled work and outworking of Calvary's Tree
and the one who hung thereupon. It conveniently keeps
in place human priests and obsoletes which slight and
deny the renting of the temple veil......click.
Seething out of the same 'Whore Church', the One
World-Church, the Church of the Second Command in a big
way is that major stench.....unbelief!........click.
Unbelief in God's Word and the power thereof. Ignorant
and arrogant religious people who teach that the 'Word
of God' has no worth when spoken by a person who is not
living up to it. How faithless and insulting is this in
the eyes and ears of Father. As if the Word of God
somehow governed by a mere humans condition or
standing. Did not the prophet say that Yahweh's Word can
never return void and did not the apostle say that the
word is preached regardless of the condition of men's
hearts?.......Isaiah 55:11, Philippians 1:18.
Therefore the teaching and preaching of the word is for
everyone's hearing and hopefully salvation. And the
doing of the word is for all who desire to be saved from
the wrath to come and hell-fire eternal. And this cannot
be done unless we first love him/Jesus, who first loved
us and enables us to love him by grace through faith........click.
However, matching words with actions or practicing what
we preach is not only a goodly, honest thing but can
prove to be soul-saving. Whatever the situation, nothing
can ever devalue the worth of God's Word. Like the old
religious saying (and it is religious not
scripture) that "you are turning people away from
God" or "people won't want to come to Jesus if you're
poor" and don't have an IPOD. How pathetic can you
get?......1 Timothy 4:16....click.
|God Almighty calls
an individual to salvation, repentance and the entire
process is brought to a standstill, halt, by a mere
human. I have to say that I view God in a far greater
power (actually infinite). There is only one who
puts the salvation process off or to a dead end, an
eternal-dead-end and that one is You.
MARK....THE BLAMELESS MAN AND OBSERVE THE UPRIGHT ONE
FOR THE FUTURE OF THAT MAN IS PEACE.............PSALM
Oils ain't oils and not all Israel are Israel and words
ain't just words especially Mashiah's Words, for they
are the words that lead to eternal life, they will never
be put aside or ever die, they remain forever.....click.
Without the knowledge of scripture, the doctrine of the
Christ we are poor and perishing, staggering along the
wide-road all the way to perdition.
● Rightly dividing the 'Word' by the power of the
Pastor Paul Sheehan
P.S......Another humbling thought would have to be the
reference of satan being released from his sentence
(1,000 years) in the pit, bound by a chain
unbreakable at Father's Command. What shall be the
outcome once he is let off the (God made - unbreakable
chain) chain once again to work his magic?.......Revelation 20:1, 2.
We have all seen the carnage of his wanderings last
time, ref/Mrs. Eve Dusty-Rib, Mrs. Lot, The Church of
John 6:66, Balaam and the Laodecians to mention a few.
Surely a lesson in 'being not haughty'. And by
this we are forever indebted to his 'Way-Doctrine'
as from the beginning of salvation, 'conditions apply'
if we want to be part of Almighty God's Household
