The Good Samaritan and The Refugee

The Good Samaritan

The Good Samaritan and The Refugee

Yesterday, I posted a video called, “Why Fear Refugees?” it is a video that is meant to provoke thought and hopefully inspire healing around the world. Of course, privately and publicly some people took issue. I understand that. The day we are living in, as I said months ago, is a different one. Recently, I posted a video and an essay titled “No Peace for the Wicked” where I explained that I believed shortly we would be struck to the very heart with fear. Fear of terrorist attacks right here in the un-walled countries like the United States, England, France, etc. It was not long after that, in fact just under two weeks, that we heard of the Paris attacks. This troubled me, because I knew that mass hysteria would follow. And it has. Many are fighting to keep refugees out of their countries, not just the men, but the women and the children too. I understand this. I worry for my children as well. However, in times like these we must never lose sight of LOVE. We who call ourselves children of the most high must not be ruled by selfish fear.

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

God has not given us the spirit of selfish fear and yet the world’s narrative is fighting to have us all jump on board.

Let me remind you what fear gave way to in Nazi Germany. Not to mention, how fear is used to turn brother against brother, son and daughter against father and mother. Fear is the enemy of truth and peace. This is why it is so important that we turn within and seek a true answer, a true path, instead of blindly following the path of fear laid out for us all by a greedy corrupt carnal system.

In this video, I simply shared my heart and I pray that it does some good. For that is all anyone should want in this world.

Before reading the rest of this essay, I pray you take a moment to watch the video posted here. If you already have your mind made up, I don’t judge you, there is enough of that in the world already, I simply ask that you scroll down and read my exposition of the Good Samaritan story below. I have shared this years ago, but it definitely needs repeating. So please click the video link first and then read, or scroll down and enjoy.

Luke 10:30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbor unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

You got to love how Jesus always starts his parable off with “a certain man” –

There is a good reason for this. The words “CERTAIN MAN” is analogous with EVERY MAN/WOMAN – it is no one in particular and everyone in particular.

Now, upon a simple reading of this above passage of scripture you would think this story is about some poor guy who got robbed and only one person helped him. But like I always says, not everything is as it literally seems.

This parable has more to do with FAITH and BELIEF than it has to do with literally being robbed. The thieves more to do with those who steal from our faith, then our pockets.

So, let’s tear these scriptures apart and SEE (understand) what is REALLY going on.

Luke 10:30
And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves.

We can learn something from the description of where this “certain man” left, Jerusalem, which in HEBREW means “Teaching of PEACE”.

So this “certain man” left the “TEACHING OF PEACE “(Jerusalem) to go to Jericho, which means “It’s MOON” – Symbolic of the FALSE LIGHT. The MOON is symbolic of MAN’S SOUL as it simply REFLECTS the SON/SUN. The MOON is not the SOURCE of LIGHT (Truth) it is a very dim reflection of it.

The SUN is to the SON as the Moon is to MANS WAYS/TEACHING.

This is interesting to note because this CERTAIN MAN left Jerusalem to go to JERICHO…

This certain man LEFT THE TEACHING OF PEACE for the FALSE LIGHT. And this is what so many people are ignorantly doing today. God wakes them up inside, they want to know God, and unfortunately they leave what is being taught within and go to “religion”. AND THEY GET ROBBED AND BEATEN AND ABUSED FOR IT!

Been there, done that myself.

Another clue to this are the word’s “went down” — whenever we read about people ascending in a story or descending in a story there is a spiritual reason. The CERTAIN MAN went down… he descended… he left HIGHER THINKING for LOWER THINKING.

You see, this story is an allegory of MANKIND leaving the TRUTH of God for the IMITATION/Religion – BADDDDD RELIGION…. And yes, most of us do this very same thing. I did it, you probably did it, or you are doing it now.

I know what you’re saying, “That’s a stretch, Jacob.. Jerusalem and Jericho are literal places, the meaning of their names isn’t significant at all…

Well, lets look at the next line…

Luke 10:30
And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves.

This CERTAIN MAN left Jerusalem for Jericho and fell among THIEVES. Oh, sure you could say that he was just robbed literally… BUT, THAT DOESN’T HELP YOU SPIRITUALLY DOES IT?

Our literal possessions don’t matter to God, do they?

Matthew 6:20
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt…

Let’s remember, Jesus was just asked a question about how one inherits eternal life. This is the way Jesus chose to answer.

Jesus is TEACHING about how to inherit ETERNAL LIFE not about how to avoid getting robbed, or some self-defense technique…

As I said earlier, this is a story of “MANKIND” leaving THE TEACHING OF PEACE (Jerusalem) for MAN’S TEACHINGS (The Moon/Jericho).

Now we know, there is only ONE WAY to find the FATHER and that is THROUGH THE SON. (Becoming the SON(child of God) that is)

This is what Jesus is telling the lawyer. He is actually showing the lawyer that the LAWYER was a THIEF to begin with.

Of course, the Lawyers and Pharisees of the world could never see this because they are too busy keeping people from the Kingdom. That was their thing, all about straining for gnats and swallowing camels… Making long prayers, taking the choice seats, and pointing out everyone’s sin, while never really coming to the knowledge of the truth.

So, let’s entertain the idea that I am correct here. Let’s imagine that this story is about Mankind leaving the TRUTH for MAN’S TEACHINGS and getting robbed spiritually… If this be so, who then are the THIEVES?

Well, Jesus tells us…

John 10:1
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

Look at that, Jesus says THOSE THAT TRY and ENTER THE KINGDOM ANY OTHER WAY than the way, truth, and life… Is a THIEF AND A ROBBER.

Isn’t that something? This paper is about MANKIND leaving GOD’S TRUTH for MAN’S LIES and they FALL AMONG THIEVES… and Jesus says, the thieves are liars who promise entrance into the Kingdom another way, without CHRIST, without the TRUTH.

Now, let me just point out.

Just because you “Literally” say “Jesus is your Lord and Savior” and go to church every Sunday and read your bible and pray… that DOES NOT MEAN you worship GOD. Don’t get angry, these aren’t my words… Take it up with the scriptures.

Matthew 7:21
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

That means a literal belief in a literal Man is not what it means to have the TRUTH. The hope of Glory if CHRIST IN YOU. Salvation is believing on his name (nature) … Salvation is UNDERSTANDING THE TRUTH about God. Salvation is always LOVE.

There are hundreds of denominations in Christianity that claim Jesus as their Lord and Savior, who are as lost as those who worship the bark off a tree. This is why we MUST ask God, “Teach me the Truth, no matter what the cost” and daily seek His Face (NOT LITERALLY HIS FACE). To seek God’s face, is to RECOGNIZE the TRUTH.

And when we SEEK GOD we MUST get rid of EVERY THING else we have held unto and believed to be true, that was not TRUE.

We must let go of everything man has taught us for what the Holy Spirit WITHIN US teaches us.

SO, to be saved we HAVE TO LET GO OF ANY THING THAT IS NOT TRUE. We must be purged of the OLD MAN, the OLD THINKING, WE MUST PUT ON THE MIND OF CHRIST, and get rid of everything else.

We saw how Paul had those on his Prison Ship get rid of everything in the boat that was WEIGHING them down so the STORM would not overtake them. A perfect picture of how we have to get rid of all the lies we have believed over the years and allow Christ the TRUTH to set us free.

But back to our story here.

Luke 10:30
And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves.

You see, when we first enter religion… many of us, fall among THIEVES. We enter in thinking we will get closer to God but these so-called Teachers end up stealing from us. They rob us of so much, our spirit, our finances, our friends, our fun, our routines, like the FROGS that plagued Egypt (if you have eyes to see this) these CROAKING RELIGIOUS LEADERS get into everything, our food, our bedroom, every aspect of our lives these Religious Leaders try to control. This is what Jesus’ parable is about, Bad Religion.

Let’s go to rest of this verse.

…which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead

RAIMENT is a key word here people… Once again, we are not talking about some real life thugs robbing a guy and stealing his clothes. No, we are talking about a covering, “spiritual Raiment” – and all we need to do is going to scripture to find out what it really is.

Revelation 3:5
He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment;

RAIMENT is another word for clothes. Clothes we put on and take off. God clothes us with TRUTH and HUMILITY.

1 Peter 5:5
Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

You see, here is another allegory for us to uncover. Many people, wanting to have a relationship with God, ignorantly leave Godly beliefs like humility, acceptance, forgiveness, for the love for Religious pride, condemnation, judgment, and more.

So, this “Certain Man” went to Religion to find God and ended up being robbed and stripped of every good thought he had when he was in Jerusalem (the teaching of peace)

These Thieves are bad, bad, bad, RELIGIOUS leaders, who lure you in and take, take, take from you. And they leave you HALF DEAD (Carnal and ignorant) – As the LAWYER in this story, most certainly did on a regular basis.

Whenever you leave the TRUTH OF GOD for the WAYS OF MAN, you will always find some Thief waiting to rob you.

This puts a whole new spin, however on the crucifixion. As Christ was right there IN BETWEEN TWO THIEVES…

You see, even the THIEVES can repent and find their dwelling in paradise in Christ.

Moving on:

“And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.”

By now, you should understand why the Priest and Levite passed the robbed, naked, beaten, half dead man on the other side. They weren’t going to help this “certain man” at all. For they were THIEVES themselves. If however, the man had something to OFFER THEM, they would… But at this point, he had nothing.

Bad Religious Leaders cannot help those abused by other Bad Religious Leaders. The Priest and Levite, claimed the things of God, claimed to know God, but ignored the hurt member of their faith. They can’t see the pain bad religion causes, they can’t see the damage they are doing to their blind flock. Because they are blind themselves.

Jesus said, when I was naked you DID NOT clothe me. This is a picture of the BODY OF CHRIST, being robbed of the TRUTH of God they should be CLOTHED IN!

WISDOM is what the half dead need. And this parable speaks it clearly.

“But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.”

This is the NEIGHBOR who we must LOVE AS OURSELVES. Those being abused and robbed of the TRUTH in BAD RELIGION. And that pretty much sums up everyone, from every faith, and those without faith, bad religion has robbed the world blind!

We, are to be like the Samaritan which comes from the Hebrew ROOT word “GUARDIANSHIP” – We appear to the Lawyers and Pharisees of the world as “Heretics” who don’t know the God of the Hebrews, but a TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS FRUIT… And this Samaritan’s fruit was SWEET.

We are to be the GUARDIANS of the day. We are to be the bringer of LIGHT, if CHRIST be in us. There are many hurting today, many that Religion has robbed and abused, WE MUST PICK UP THE PIECES FOR THEM WITH LOVE.

The word COMPASSION, means to SUFFER WITH. We MUST ANSWER their SUFFERING and BIND UP THEIR WOUNDS.

How do we do it? You ask.

WITH OIL AND WINE! – Yes, this is another allegory. Of course, Neosporin would help a healing wound better than oil and wine, so we must see what is truly being USED TO HEAL here.

OIL is a symbol. It is used on the sick and used to anoint Kings. First consider how oil is made, it is the ESSENCE of the OLIVE, and our symbolic “OIL” that WE must pour out is the ESSENCE of CHRIST, which is TRUTH/WISDOM.

OIL is a symbol for WISDOM.

Psalm 104:15
And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.

OIL makes a face SHINE …Want to see what else causes a man’s face to shine?

Ecclesiastes 8:1
Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man’s wisdom maketh his face to shine,

WISDOM makes a face to SHINE.

This puts a whole new spin on why Moses’ face was shining after coming down from the mountain of God. And why Jesus’ face was shining on the Mount of Transfiguration. WISDOM IS THE KEY, A TREE OF LIFE, OF ALL THERE IS TO GET, GET WISDOM! 🙂

OIL = WISDOM

WINE = SPIRIT OF TRUTH

This is what we use to heal the wounds of those who have fallen among THIEVES (those who try to enter the Kingdom any other way than Christ)

When BAD RELIGION steals, we BIND UP.

When they are left NAKED, we CLOTHE THEM with the WISDOM OF THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH!

This is what it means, to LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF. Now go and do likewise.

So the question really becomes, when you see the Refugee beaten, and half-starved, will you pass by because of irrational fear or will you feed him, or her, clothe him or her, and shelter him or her? That question I leave to you.

I try and live by the golden rule… Do unto others as you would like others to do to you. If we all lived by this simple principal there would be peace on earth indeed.

THE TRUMPET SOUNDS – FEAR NO MORE!

THE TRUMPET SOUNDS – FEAR NO MORE!

This short powerful mini documentary will take your breath away! You have been lied to by this world your whole life, you have been fed a constant diet of fear, worry, shame, greed, and pride. Because of this cruel brainwashing you took upon yourself the sins/lies of the world and WHO YOU TRULY ARE IN ESSENCE DIED… but that is about to change!

You are more than you know! This short mini movie will open your eyes to a great enemy hiding in plain sight. “Roaming to and fro seeking whom it may devour”. This “enemy” disguises itself as “god” and most worship this liar as god. For your enemy is most certainly the god of this carnal ignorant world. Yet, this enemy is not your god anymore… because now the truth you have begun to see clear.

This enemy, your adversary, the devil is also called the carnal ego/id of mankind. This is the JUDAS that dines with you, sits at the table with you, and betrays you for THE LOVE OF MONEY AND POWER. This “enemy” is the root of your fear and it has stolen your life away with it.

The “god” of this world, the devil, the serpent, which is man’s carnal ego or the “ID”, is the very enemy people have been worshipping their whole lives unaware. Because of this few know how to truly live their life. Life has become more of a chore, it is about suffering and fear and worry and doubt instead of righteousness (right thinking), peace, joy and power…

HOWEVER, THAT IS ALL ABOUT TO CHANGE!

It’s time to wake up to the new day we are in and LIVE our life!

After watching this video you may just see “SATAN, FALL LIKE LIGHTENING FROM HEAVEN (your higher thinking)!”

The TRUTH sets you free from the lies you believe about yourself and others. When the DAYSTAR rises in your heart you will know which voice to listen to, which words to bring forth, which thoughts to manifest and which thoughts to cast away and you will FEAR NO MORE.

Please enjoy this short mini movie called “The Trumpet Sounds – Fear No More” and enjoy a poem I wrote on this topic called, “Two In One Bed” – the double minded man is unstable in all his ways. It’s time to be of ONE MIND, ONE HEART, ONE SPIRIT, ONE TRUTH, ONE LOVE, AND ONE LIFE TOGETHER! Please do share with others and subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already. Much love to you and yours, Jacob


“TWO IN ONE BED”
There are two voices in everyone’s head.
The quieter voice is always the better choice, because the louder offers only fear and dread.
The quieter voice is love and truth, the louder voice will lie to you and make you wish you were dead.
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
This is why you must find the quieter voice today.
The louder voice will shout and pout and will do everything to make you believe these thoughts are actually coming from you.
The Louder voice will demand action, demand revenge, and will always make you do what you should not do.
The quieter is your hope, salvation, and great reward, this you will find.
The louder will grind hope and peace to powder if you allow it each and every time.
This is why the still quiet voice you must find.
You can choose to win or lose, whether to fall or rise.
The loudest is the room is always wrong, while the one who thinks before he acts and speaks is wise.
So take your thoughts captive and see whether they be true or lies.
In the end, my friend, you will thank me, because the quiet voice is peace, power, purpose and perfection finally realized.

FEAR NOT!



“FEAR NOT”

You have to love those two words. “Fear Not”, is used, according to a simple Biblegateway search of the KiNg James, some 63 times. I wanted to point this out, because many “Christians” today say that Jesus mentioned the word “Hell” more than anything else in the scriptures, yet the word “hell” (which by the way literally translates into (Grave, Death, Hidden place, Valley, Lamentation, Pit) yet even this word appears far less than the words “Fear Not” in scripture. But what is more interesting is this false belief that Jesus spoke about “Hell” more than anything else. Search the scriptures and you will see the amount of times Jesus mentions, speaks about, or teaches about the word “Love” dwarfs the amount of times “hell” is mentioned in the entire canon of scripture.

Now this article isn’t meant to disprove the nonsense teaching today of infinite torture, read my article “To hell with Hell”, or the “Lake of Fire Revealed” for that. I am simply using that as a jumpstart to this essay. You, like many others, have probably never taken the time to see if Jesus really spoke about “hell” more than anything else as so many “Christians” claim. That is our problem as a body of believers really, and in society as a whole… we simply take people’s word for things instead of going and seeking the Truth for ourselves.

1 Corinthians 11:18-20
18…I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. 19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.


This is why we see so much division today, in the world, in religion, in our own hearts. We have been fed a steady diet of lies and fear that people truly don’t know what to believe, until it is “made manifest to them”, until these lies are revealed.

I don’t know about you, but I am tired of living a life of fear, worry, debate, and self loathing. I want to come out from under the hand of sorrow, get out of this valley of the shadow of death, and walk into that peace that passes understanding. The question is, how does one get there? How do we become HAPPY?

Proverbs 3:13
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding


1 Kings 10:8
Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom


Job 5:17
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty


John 13
15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.


So to be happy we MUST, listen to the truth, hear wisdom, allow God to correct us, and do as Jesus did. Simple right? AHHHHHH NOPE!

This is why our lives are so hard, because we are learning that OUR WAY is not the RIGHT WAY. In scripture we are warned of the “Strange Woman”, an allegorical character that represents our carnal ego. She is also known as the whore of Babylon, the adulterous woman, etc… she a representation of any thought process that leads you away from the Truth of God (path of life) into the ignorance of our carnal mind (hell). In this next proverb, pay attention to how we find out way out.

Proverbs 5
1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.


Our minds are flooded with thoughts that drag us into the pits of ignorance, pain, hate, and suffering. And it is easy when someone does us wrong to follow that thought process (strange woman’s lips) and end up in an emotional hell where you simply would rather end it all than live another day. BUT NOTICE HOW WE KEEP OURSELVES FROM THIS?

We keep the TRUTH, in our hearts and minds. We continue to ponder (think about) the path of Life (the truth of God). And most importantly we TRUST GOD, leaning not on our ignorance, but on the TRUTHS set before us… LOVE, LOVE, LOVE (that is the TRUTH, we must keep).

Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding


I know how hard this is. But IF we want to be happy and have peace in this world, we MUST TRUST THAT EVERYTHING IS GOING ACCORDING TO GOD’S PLAN! When we are hurt, WE MUST NOT HURT BACK, we must find forgiveness immediately! When we begin to feel overwhelmed, and begin to hate our situations, we must understand that the moment is TEMPORARY and until we can simply TRUST THE PLAN and see each day, and each perceived problem in our lives as a necessary tool to get us to that place where we Trust God, Hold Unto Truth and Wisdom, and do as Jesus did. If we don’t TRUST GOD (who works all things together for HIS WILL, and HIS WILL is that all be saved from the pain in their lives (look it up)), if we don’t TRUST that all is well in the world and in our lives, we will never be free from the pain of FEAR.

This is why the words “Fear Not” as used so often. We are told to take no thought for our lives, basically we are told, stop worrying about your bills, your health, your children, your relationships, the weather, the government, the future… the list of fears go on and on. And if Religion were to have her way, you would also be tricked into fearing things that don’t even literally exist (infinite torture, a rapture, the end of the world, demons, and the scary character named the DEVIL (who is nothing more than YOUR CARNAL EGO).

You see, I understand how hard it is for us to have peace, when we are daily bombarded with everything that is wrong in our lives and in the world. Most people have such a problem with life that they want to find some sense of peace and what do they do, they do what I did, they go to Church and like me they then get more fears added unto them. They are told YOU ARE NO GOOD, you are a sinner doomed for hell, (not because of anything you did of course, it was Adam’s fault) LOL, then you are told that you have to do all these things to escape this future torture, WHICH YOU KNEW NOTHING ABOUT UNTIL YOU WERE LOOKING FOR THE GOOD NEWS AND PEACE! Life is HELL in this world as it for most of us, then to go looking for peace and to only find… WHAT? MORE BAD NEWS! Are you kidding me? How could anyone find peace in that? Then to be fed a constant diet of how people who don’t do what your particular church does, or believe what they believe, is damned. So of course, people don’t find peace and happiness in that. They become bitter and fill themselves with religious (I know better than you) pride, and then those people become more screwed up then they were before they darkened those church doors.

Matthew 23:15
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.


But becoming a member of a certain Church isn’t going to save you! Doing what religious men and women tell you, isn’t going to save you, all that does is keep you in a constant state of FEAR, where you worry you may lose your salvation if you don’t do this or pay that. The problem is, they are missing the point completely, THEY NEED TO BE SAVED FROM THE PAIN OF THEIR OWN LIVES AND THEIR IGNORANCE!

This is what we need salvation from, not the future which doesn’t exist for us, or our past which no longer exists for us. Yet isn’t it our future and past that CONSUMES US?

Another one of Jesus’ favorite expressions is “Take not thought” – take no thought about what you will wear, eat, drink, what you should say or not say, TAKE NO THOUGHT…

Matthew 6:34
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.


The RELIGIOUS want to keep you scared to death, and keep your eyes on the FUTURE FATE OF THE WORLD! They are constantly bragging about visions, and other nonsense about these so-called END OF DAYS!

AS IF PEOPLE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TO WORRY ABOUT IN THEIR OWN LIVES? These religious leaders just add piles and piles on bias, fear, condemnation, regret, shame, and more unto all the dumb sheep that haven’t yet learned, IT IS TIME TO SEEK GOD WITHIN FOR YOURSELF!

If God wanted us to constantly worry about our future fate, or feel bad about our past, he would have told us… YET the man Jesus spoke God’s truth in saying…

Matthew 6:34
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.


Take no thought! DON’T WORRY! FEAR NOT! It will ALL WORK OUT! One day because of all you are going through, when you TRUST GOD, KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE OF LOVE, and PUT OTHERS BEFORE YOURSELF, then you will HAPPY! And ALL THINGS ARE WORKING TOGETHER TO GET YOU THERE!

Romans 14:22
Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth


We have to STOP being so hard on ourselves people. We are not bad, we are not ugly, we are not despised or rejected, GOD HAS NOT LEFT US OR FORSAKEN US, God is correcting us, trying to wake us out of the slumber of fear, worry, and shame, that everyone from our parents, to our teachers, religious leaders, and even our neighbors have banged into our heads. If there was ever a nightmare called HELL it truly is the DEATH OF IGNORANCE!

And remember, the punishment for falling out of sync with God was never infinite torture it was DEATH!

Genesis 2:17
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


And what is DEATH?

Romans 8:6
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace


Death is what we are ALL walking around in right now, if we suffer. I am not above it. There are days I don’t feel like I can go on, days I cry, days I wish I never came into this world, but in those days, ALWAYS in the back of my mind I KNOW THE TRUTH! I know that those thoughts of FEAR are not real, I know FEAR is not of God, so everything I have fear, shame, guilt or regret about something, I stop and remind myself, GOD IS IN CONTROL, and I start again. Because I know that the MOMENT is all that matters, not the past, not the future.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind


Here again we see what GOD GIVES US is LOVE, PEACE, LIFE, A SOUND MIND! So guess what, everything else AINT REAL! And we need to take our fearful thoughts captive, and cast those imaginations down. We need to say, THIS IS NOT THE TRUTH OF MY LIFE, I HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, I AM A GOOD PERSON, I AM GODS CHILD IN WHOM GOD IS WELL PLEASED!

2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;


Any THOUGHT that becomes more important to you in the moment, besides thoughts of LIFE, LOVE, PEACE, than those “branches” of thought that are not rooted in “Christ”, LIFE, WISDOM, POWER, LOVE AND PEACE, as jesus said, must be cast into the fire (destroyed, wiped away from our thinking). Because these are not TREES GOD PLANTS!

John 15:5-7
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.


Many use this passage to back up the deceptive teacher of infinite torture, but really look at what the scripture is saying. Christ (the way, light, truth, love, power and wisdom of God) is the vine, we are EXTENSIONS of that VINE. MEANING WE ARE ALL ONE! Our root source, our life spring, where we come from is LIFE, LOVE, LIGHT, POWER, WISDOM, THE WAY! Now if we don’t abide (understand who we are at our center (Christ)) then we bring fruit and our lives are filled with purpose, and peace. But if we don’t abide (live) in the LIFE and we detach ourselves from the unity and trust that is only found in understanding who you really are at your core (Christ), then your life will becom a curse to you. Spiritually you will decay, and the thoughts that are causing you pain will eventually land you in trials like that of being cast into the fire. These trials, and hard times are meant to BURN AWAY the thoughts that have you thinking you are something you are not. But more importantly, this fire (which is the testing of your faith) is going to burn away all of your FEAR, because FEAR is truly the root of all suffering.

I know there will be many religious teachers that say FEAR IS IMPORTANT, it is the BEGINNING of wisdom, we should be scared of God, for he is a God to be feared! First let me point out what a Good Father is, a good father is a loving Father, a fair and just Father, a Father you trust and want to please not because you are scared of Him, but because HE LOVED YOU FIRST, SO YOU LOVE HIM!

And secondly, as I said, many people use FEAR to motivate people into believing particular religious beliefs. “fear if the Lord is the BEGINNING of WISDOM!” – NOTICE that scripture does not say, FEAR OF GOD IS THE END OF WISDOM, it is quiet the opposite, it is the BEGINNING!

In fact, when we begin anything in LIFE, fear is found at the beginning of that experience. Whether it is riding a bike for the first time, going on the school bus for the first time, starting a new job, ANYTHING THAT IS NEW begins with a sense of FEAR…. but that is not the middle of the experience, and definitely not the end of the experience…. No it is not the END where we find FEAR, IT IS THE BEGINNING. Because at the beginning of our coming to understand the truth about God and ourselves we fear, but when we become wise we learn there was nothing to fear, EVER!

The Beginning of Wisdom may be fear, BUT LOOK WHAT THE END IS!

Ecclesiastes 7:8
Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof


Fear is the Beginning of our journey here, but the END IS LIFE, LOVE, POWER AND PEACE! And that is so much better than the beginning indeed!

I know things are hard for many of us right now. But I want you to trust that you are going to come out of this valley with Goodness and Mercy, for it is following you!

Isaiah 54:6-8
6 The LORD will call you back
as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit— a wife who married young,
only to be rejected,” says your God


We will return to His Rest, we will find joy and peace, God is calling us back, God is using all of our pain and hurt as a shepherd uses his staff to guide the Sheep to the Sheep gate. Like Paul, we must learn that it hurts to fight against the situations in our lives, we must simply accept them and keep our mind on the TRUTH, LOVE!

Acts 26:14
And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks


ONE DAY WE WILL WAKE UP AND REALIZE – it is YOU AND ME that we are PERSECUTING! Daily we ignorantly persecute our true nature (Christ), and in so doing we suffer, but one day we will see the vanity of such actions and we will stop fighting to hold unto our egotistical lives, and we will lose that, to save the TRUE LIFE of CHRIST WITHIN US!

So for a moment, things will be hard, but HAPPY will you be when you TRUST THE PLAN, LET GOD OF YOUR CONTROL, LOVE OTHERS, SERVE OTHERS, and most importantly HAPPY are those that don’t condemn themselves and do good! So LIVE your life, don’t let fear, shame, regret, or worry rob you of the TRUTH, that you are God’s Child in Whom He is Well Pleased! So stop beating yourself up and rejoice! Stop allowing other people’s issues to steal your joy, they are not your issues they are theirs, take criticism as an hour glass takes sand, let it pass right through you. Don’t believe the fearful things you hear people say, live for the moment, live for love, LIVE FOR YOUR LIFE and you will find death no more!

OVERCOMING FEAR


OVERCOMING FEAR

As my good friend Dean Dosher reminded me last night “Perfect Love” casts out all fear. And indeed that is what this below video is all about. Fear is the root of all our suffering, it is the very entrance to hell (our ignorant suffering), and there is salvation from it. I hope “overcoming fear” is something we all grab unto and hold onto and never let it go. Much love and feel free to share, Jacob

“The Truth Will Change You”

A RESPONSE TO A READER


A RESPONSE TO A READERS COMMENT

This morning, very early I found another email which was aimed at proving how wrong I was. An earlier email from this reader’s friend/ collegue, Victor stated I need to put on ashes and sackcloth and tear my blog down. He got real upset with one of my posts, or comments. Which is fine, each to their own. But instead of giving a long response to Sara in the comment section, I figured it was best to address her here. We may all learn something.

This all stemmed, when I stated to Victor, that if I was immature in my faith, his harsh comment would have kept me up all night worrying. I’ve been there, not a fun place to be, under the YOKE of another’s condemnation. But I no longer live my life that way. As you’ll see in this essay, I live my life and judge accordingly, if it ain’t love it ain’t God. This is why I thought it was so important to respond here. Because there are so many that are condemned and attacked when they step out of the box their religious leaders have put them in. I pray, that when the Victor’s and Sara’s of this world come to you and say, REPENT and put you under their control, you can step back and seek God for approval, not the Victor’s or Sara’s of the world for approval. The purpose of this blog, which Victor told me to tear down immediately (on God’s authority he believes he speaks from) is to encourage many to seek God and NOT MAN.

So, I wanted to put my response here because I have a feeling some good stuff may come out of it. I don’t deal with every jot and tittle of Sara’s email but I do overall deal with it. So please enjoy, my response.

DEAR SARA,

What a lot of thought and energy went into your comment. I commend your effort, I see you belong to the same belief system as Victor, “Pathfromtruth”, I believe it is… In any event, I thank you for your comments, it will give me the oppurtunity to grow in grace and learn. You know I could delete this comment and never let it see the light of day, but Sara I want everyone to see the LIGHT OF CHRIST.

Now it seems you, like your friend Victor really want to “rebuke me” or “put me in my place” saying who is right and who is wrong. I understand your need to do this. It is hard to hear things that are very different than you believe. The day of the Lord is a scary (not the way you think scary is) day, because truly the “fear” that is coming from it, comes only from the CARNAL Mind.

That’s right, I’ll state it again. In God there is no FEAR, condemnation, guilt, shame, etc. In the spirit of TRUTH and LOVE there is none of these things. When you are united with God, when you seek first the Kingdom of God, all your spiritual needs are met (there is nothing to “fear” then) –

In fact, I believe it is “fear” that has put you and Victor up to writing me. Because if you cannot prove me wrong (which isn’t needed with love, for I could be wrong, but I’m okay knowing God will correct me if and when I am). But if what I have written is TRUE, then the axe indeed has been laid to your roots and you have to change your beliefs. And who wants to admit they have been misled…. Well, I will. I have been misled for years. No longer, praise God.

So I think it is a great thing to see all the scriptures you posted on here. It will give me the oppurtunity ti show you how I see them. Not to prove you wrong, because even if I did, my words alone cannot change your heart, Only God Can.

Not everyone is on the same page yet, but I have faith one day we all will be. God makes everything beautiful in its time. So whether you are right or I am, really doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Because both of us will come to the Knowledge of the Truth and the stature of the perfect man. This is why I don’t worry about your comments, I seek God daily, always praying for the same thing, “teach me the truth, take away everything I believe that isn’t true, let me love and forgive, let me now the light, and be one with the light, to be a light in this world.”

Now this is a great lesson for me, because I like you at times, when I see others that are wrong I feel the urge to correct them, and we should correct people absolutely. But there is a right and wrong way to do it. So let us both pray that we know how to gently lead others to the truth, instead of bashing them, accusing them, and tearing them down. You don’t go to a homeless person and say, “YOUR A BUM, GET A JOB, YOUR LOST!” No, you say, “Let me help you find a home.”

Now you have stated that I have rejected salvation. That, I have to admit is a bit silly to me, considering I spend each day seeking God, knowing I have salvation and understanding what is truly is I am saved from. For one, I am saved from being yoked by religious people who codemn instead of save. (Jesus did not condemn others he came to save them. He came to give SIGHT to those that could not see (didn’t understand or claim to understand) and make blind those who did (thought they knew God = The Condemning Religious) – This is my prayer as well, I simply hope to inspire and encourage others, where so many have only beaten people to believe what they believe, I hope to heal and love and forgive and allow GOD to do his work, which I have complete faith in.

I want to RAISE UP CHRIST (THE WHOLE TRUTH) for the world to see, WITHIN ME, because I know CHRIST will draw ALL MEN.

But as for your many scriptures, which I will answer a few and not each one, as I do have LIFE. Notice I didn’t say a LIFE 🙂

Let’s go into your email a bit, perhaps we will all learn something from it.

First, let me point out the scripture I was referring to.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

So, God doesn’t give us this spirit. Which means, fear comes from another spirit giver (place of thought) = Carnal Mind.

This is why Jesus, was always saying BE NOT AFRAID, not of HIM, nor of God. That was ADAM’S problem, the carnal man FEARS GOD. Now look at that verse you quoted from one of the Gospels, I’ll use Luke’s. I believe you used this scripture as well.

4And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

FEAR HIM who has power to CAST YOU into HELL. Fear HIM! Now you mistakingly believe that is God. But it is not GOD that casts us into HELL, it is our VANITY that leads us there for CORRECTION. The Grave isn’t a bad thing, suffering teaches us to crawl out of our ignorant whole back to the light… But let’s look at the next line in LUKE, Jesus clearly once again tells them not to worry, that God is in control of their lives.


6Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. FEAR NOT therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

You see Sara, when we look at the whole scripture, clearly Jesus is not saying FEAR GOD, he is saying FEAR HIM who has power to cast you into HELL. The question is, who is that?

The answer is the CARNAL MIND, the LIE. The strange woman in scripture, that HARLOT, and yes the LIES OF THE RELIGIOUS, for they do indeed inspire FEAR.

You see it is UNBELIEF that brings you into the PITS OF HELL. It’s not God, it’s your self effort and vain attempt to be God.

Matthew 5:29
And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell (the grave/death/ignorance).

If what you believe isn’t true, get rid of it, or you will suffer because of it.

Proverbs 5
1My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding: 2That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge. 3For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: 4But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. 5Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on HELL.

When we listen to LIES, the end result is HELL/death/ignorance/suffering/the grave.

Now one could say, God does this, sure. But truly it is MAN that does this to himself, by seperating himself from the TRUTH. So of course, once you LEAVE the Kingdom of God (righteousness, peace, and joy) – you will be cast into HELL (Ignorant suffering)

Now, let’s look at the next verse in PSALMS you quote.

“And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall in wisdom think of His doing” (Psalms 64:9 MKJV).

The word FEAR in the HEBREW “Yare” means to to stand in awe of, be awed to fear, reverence, honour, respect.

You see, very big difference then how you have presented it here. As if all men are cowering because a vengeful God is standing above them, waiting to punish their every misstep.

What that verse really means, is this.

“And all men shall stand in awe, revere, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall in wisdom think of His doing” (Psalms 64:9 MKJV).

I stand in AWE of God, and REVERANCE God each and every day. And yes, I know once I leave that, I too, could suffer in the pits of hell. So I stay in scriptures that tell me “Be STILL and know that I am the Lord”, the THOUGHTS GOD gives are not ones of terror, but ones of peace.

We are not to be SCARED of our FATHER in heaven. MAN IS MADE in God’s image. Only an ABUSIVE PARENT a child is scared of. And God is LOVE.

Now let’s look at you’re next example,

“And hearing these words, Ananias fell down and expired. And great fear came on all those who heard these things” (Acts 5:5 MKJV).

Now, of course, ANANIAS DIED (he was ignorant of the Truth) – Ananias kept back part of the land, in other words he didn’t trust God was in control, this has nothing to do with literal money of course, it has to do with holding onto self effort and will. So when he “DIED” – Of course this inspired FEAR, “To be carnally minded is DEATH” – It was the CARNAL MIND of ANANIAS, HIS DEATH, that inspired FEAR. –

You see, most people who condemn in the name of God, and believe they are in control, and rely on “their” works and hold back part of the LAND (God’s temple) INSPIRE FEAR in those around them.

It’s interesting to point out that you are trying to prove that God wants us to be scared, ashamed, and guilty, as opposed to pointing to SALVATION – which is deliverance from ALL OF THAT. (which you said I don’t have)

Moving on to your next passage.

“And the man in whom the evil spirit resided leaped on them, and overcoming them he was strong against them, so that they fled out of the house naked and wounded. And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks who lived at Ephesus, and fear fell on all of them, and the Name of the Lord Jesus was magnified” (Acts 19:16-17 MKJV).

Once again, I will say, YES being possesed by LIES will cause FEAR IN MANY. And this FEAR only MAGNIFIES the PEACE AND TRUTH of CHRIST. – Without the DARK how would the LIGHT be MAGNIFIED?

Next passage of yours.

“Well, because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be high-minded, but fear” (Romans 11:20 MKJV).

Once again, this word means fobeÑomai – “to reverence, venerate, to treat with deference or reverential obedience” The WORD ORIGIN actually speaks of REVERANCING a HUSBAND.

This is good advice, we shouldn’t be PROUD, and think we know it all, and I know there is even a good possibility that I could be wrong. But this is how I know TEST the spirits of God, if I don’t see LOVE, I don’t see CHRIST IN THE FLESH. And if I don’t see Christ than I know it is not truth.

Next passage of yours:

“For if I have boasted anything about you to him, I was not ashamed. But as we spoke all things to you in truth, even so our boasting as to Titus became truth. And his tender feelings are more abundant toward you, remembering the obedience of you all, as you received him [a man] with fear and trembling” (2 Corinthians 7:14-15 MKJV).

Now here, the word FEAR, actually means FEAR.- FO/BOV = fear, dread, terror, that which strikes terror

But read that passage again. HOW DO MOST PEOPLE FIRST ACCEPT JESUS? That’s right with FEAR! Because they are taught this. Go up a couple of verse and see how PAUL is actually REJOICING, that NOW in their faith, they DON’T HAVE FEAR 🙂

1 COR 7:13 – Therefore we were comforted in your comfort: yea, and exceedingly the more joyed we for the joy of Titus, because his spirit was refreshed by you all.

Paul is commending them, because at FIRST they were carnal scardey cats! But now they rejoice and are COMFORTED at THEIR COMFORT. – Hey don’t get me wrong, I was taught to be SCARED of God and Christ too, and this is ALSO how I first came to Christ, in FEAR AND TREMBLING. My carnal mind, however is what caused all of that, not GOD, for GOD DOES NOT GIVE US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR! 🙂

YOUR NEXT VERSE:

“Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, cultivate your own salvation with fear and trembling” (Philippians 2:12 MKJV).

Now for this above passage, please look at it in context. The first verse begins this way…

Phil 2:1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,

Here we see, he is saying there should be COMFORT, LOVE, FELLOWSHIP and UNITY.

Phil 2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Have ONE MIND, next verse goes on to say…

Phil 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

Including this back and forth, let it not be IN STRIFE of for VAIN GLORY, esteeming one knows better than the next. If truth be told, we are all ONE, and we should ALL UNDERSTAND as the next verse in PHIL states, that “It is God that works in us all for HIS GOOD PLEASURE”

It should never be about us, so YES, it is good advice to FEAR falling into these nonsence habits…. but once again, it does not mean that GOD GIVES US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR. They is nothing to FEAR but FEAR itself is basically the message here.

Now let me quickly address some of your other notes here.

“I will go; I will return to My place until they confess their guilt and seek My face; in their affliction they will seek Me diligently” (Hosea 5:15 MKJV).

We should confess, Lord I feel GUILTY, and this is why I feel this way… DELIVER ME. And you see how their GUILT caused them AFFLICTION. And YES, even our affliction, suffering, and pain, brings us to the TRUTH. In all things God is crafting our souls. But God wants us to ENTER HIS REST, and stop with all of that fear, guilt, shame nonsence… This is what it means to ENTER HIS REST, to KNOW GOD IS IN COMPLETE CONTROL.

To state that WE ARE in control, is the biggest of all SINS (foolish thoughts/ignorance)

Moving on to your next passages:

Shame

“Be righteously awake, and sin not; for some have ignorance of God. I speak this to your shame” (1 Corinthians 15:34 MKJV).

Of course, if you are IGNORANT of the TRUTH of GOD you wil have SHAME. Remember, it was SHAME that caused ADAM and EVE to hide and FEAR GOD. – Now without stating that we shouldn’t take the bible and turn it into an idol, as our forefathers, listen to the LAW OF THEIR HEARTS (Truth within) – I am not going to say that many translations are inaccurate and we should see God in all things instead, of a book. Because I love scripture, but I put my faith in CHRIST WITHIN, and scripture is good to help me along the way.

But I will say, that because of unbelief there is fighting, backbiting, debating, etc, I speak this to your “shame” – It is our SHAME that MAKES us fight to prove we are right. If we can prove we are right, then we won’t feel so insecure and insignificant. But when you are in the UNITY OF THE SPIRIT, you realize you don’t need to prove anything to anyone. You don’t need to be a man pleaser, but you seek God’s face (truth/wisdom/unity/relationship)

You see, you, like Victor, want to prove you are right and I am wrong. But, I merely write about what I am inspired to write. I don’t really have to prove whether these things be true or not. Let God be true and every man a liar. But if the spirit of unity and love and encouragement is not found in the body of someone’s rebuke, then we must question why.

Moving on with your email:

Back to me: So, there is a place for all these things – fear, guilt, and shame. They point the way, leading us to Christ. If we acknowledge (confess) the reality of our guilt and shame, this brings us to receiving the fear of God, which leads to salvation.

HERE I AM IN COMPLETE AGREEMENT WITH YOU! We must understand that our CARNAL NATURE, (who we think we are, or were) gives us fear, guilt, shame, and a lot of other terrible things, and we confess this, and say, IT IS NO LONGER THESE THINGS THAT LIVE but CHRIST, then we will find the PEACE that passes carnal man’s understanding.

Back to you again:

The fear of God forms the spirit of power and love and a sound mind, which spirit “Jacob Israel” claims to have, but he doesn’t, and he can’t, because he rejects that which brings one into salvation.

I have to STRONGLY disagree that FEAR, GUILT AND SHAME SAVES US. I would say, CHRIST SAVES, and to confess CHRIST is to depart from these EVIL thoughts. And it is not up to you, to say whether or not I am saved from fear, guilt, and shame. You cannot know if I be saved or not, because you are not me, or God. I can say, I have LIBERTY which is freedom and peace, and in many areas of my life I have been saved. My salvation is a daily thing, each day I work it out.

Your next passage:

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7 MKJV).

I will admit, I believe almost everyone begins their journey toward understanding and truth being scared of God. That doesn’t mean, FEAR is of God. It means, you are FEARFUL (Men’s hearts fail them for FEAR) BECAUSE you are still IGNORANT, and have NOT YET BECOME WISE. So this in a matter of speaking would be the beginning of WISDOM, would it not?

Now, we know WISDOM is a TREE OF LIFE. And there is no FEAR in wisdom. Neither is there condemnation, no guilt, or shame.

Yes many people are scared of God, seeing God as a tyrant creating people destined for infinite torture, but this is but the beginning of their journey.

WE ALL DIE IN ADAM, but if by MAN came DEATH (fear, guilt, shame, ignorance, condemnation) by MAN will also come the ressurection into LIFE (TRUTH, LIFE, PEACE, AND A SOUND MIND)

Jesus constantly told his disciples FEAR NOT. There is a reason for that. It is because FEAR, SHAME, GUILT, CONDEMNATION is NOT from GOD. So when we get these feelings we KNOW to turn back to GOD.

I agree, that FEAR, GUILT, SHAME, ETC also brings us to God. If this were not the case, the creation would not be finished in victory. In ADAM all die, IN CHRIST all shall be made alive. All things work together, eventually.

So for you, Victor, or whoever else is apart of your site, fear, condemnation, guilt, and shame may be the God you worship, but me and my house (Temple) worship the God OF LOVE and TRUTH. I am not scared of my FATHER in HEAVEN, only those in the world have fear.

So, I don’t get upset when people come against what I have written. If it is not true, I have FAITH God will bring that to light, and he will do so LOVINGLY, or as I need if I be stubborn and ignorant. As a Father who LOVES corrects a young child who knows no better.

Here is your last line below: I have to say “Not nice :(”

“Therefore the showers have been withheld, and there has been no latter rain; and you had a harlot’s forehead, you refused to be ashamed” (Jeremiah 3:3 MKJV).

Now your last passage here, basically is more fear tactics. Saying I have refused to be ashamed (I can only assertain, that you mean repent of what I believe)

Well, you’re wrong there, I have been ashamed in my life, many times. And still when I step out of line, I am ashamed, but I remember that IN MY FATHERS HOUSE all are provided for, and I leave the pig slop of fear, guilt, and condemnation, that the carnal religious teachers have fed me in years past for the LOVE, COMFORT AND TRUTH that only GOD PROVIDES.

So, Sara I say to you, choose this day which God you’ll serve. The one who condemns? Or the one who saves?

What you and Victor here have done, reminds me very much of what the Religious leaders of Jesus’ day did to him.

Luke 11
52Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. 53And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things: 54Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

Jesus said, you have one that accuses you already. Moses. If you live by the law, you die by it. If you are going to try and wait for me or anyone to write something that isn’t one hundred percent true, then find a better way to help that man, heal the withered hand, don’t stand around pointing saying, “I can’t heal on the sabbath”. Don’t condemn and attack, encourage and build.

2 Corinthians 13:11
Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

Instead of saying FEAR is what God wants, remember that GOD CASTS OUT ALL FEAR.

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

And as you can tell by my response to both you and Victor. I ain’t scared of you 🙂 But I loves ya, I loves ya so much that I hope we can agree that we all know in part, until that which is perfect is come. And when it is come (REVEALED) then there will be no more ACCUSING will there?

Revelation 12:10
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

I am FREE, but I will try to never allow my liberty to cause another to stumble. Think on these words, and I pray to hear from you again.

Peace Jacob
