LET THERE BE LIGHT

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

ACTS 29 TODAY

COMING TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This LET THERE BE LIGHT has been deeply implanted in me by the Holy Spirit for this new year 2018, and this is my theme song for the year also.

LET THERE BE LIGHT, OPEN THE EYES OF THE BLIND, PURIFY OUR HEARTS IN YOUR FIRE, BREATH IN US WE PRAY, JESUS HAVE YOUR WAY.

There is only ever darkness where there is an absence of light, you can not turn on a darkness switch, you must first turn off the light to get darkness.

notice…its a LIGHT switch…not a dark switch.

So lets look at the first time the light was turned off and darkness came into the human race.

Paul said in

But I am afraid that, even as the serpent beguiled Eve by his cunning, your minds may be corrupted and led away from the simplicity of [your sincere and] pure devotion to Christ.
evetemtationimages

it will make your wise

Beguile basically means TO DECEIVE, by lying, cheating, or any kind of trickery.
God said, FOR IN THE DAY THAT YOU EAT OF IT…..YOU SHALL SURELY DIE.
satan says to Eve…..can it really be that GOD said…you shall not eat from every tree of the garden?
It always comes in the form of a question, DID GOD REALLY SAY? DID GOD REALLY MEAN??????????????????
07globe-london-sermon-blogSpan
So Eve says we can eat of all the trees except the one in the middle of the garden for in the day we eat or touch it WE WILL DIE. (this is all in GEN 2 and 3 ch)
So the serpent satan says to Eve…..YOU WILL…NOT SURELY DIE.
A COMPLETE CONTRADICTION TO WHAT GOD HAD SAID, THEN SATAN TELLS HER ALL THE GOOD THINGS THAT WILL HAPPEN IF SHE EATS.
SO SHE EATS, AND THE LIGHTS GO OUT AND DARKNESS AND DEATH ENTERS THE HUMAN RACE.

When Jesus comes He is called THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD AND WHEN WE ACCEPT, REPENT (HAVE A CHANGE OF MIND AND HEART) AND BELIEVE ON HIM, THE LIGHT THAT WAS LOST IN THE GARDEN COMES BACK ON AND THE DARKNESS IS NO MORE.

Led away from the simplicity that is in Christ, if it wasn’t simple and easy to understand….I WOULD NOT BE A BELIEVER TODAY.

me on the left ha

Many today want and do make Christ so very complicated and hard to understand, so much confusion, and questioning about doctrines and blah blah blah.
I have listened to some people (but not for long) drone on, and on, and on, and then am wondering WHAT ON GODS GREEN EARTH WERE THEY TALKING ABOUT, AND WHY?
Preaching
READ THE WORD, LET THE HOLY SPIRIT TEACH YOU, LET HIM BE THE REFEREE IN WHAT IS TRUTH AND WHAT IS ERROR, STAY WITH THE SIMPLICITY THAT IS …IN…CHRIST.
DON’T LET ANYONE REGARDLESS OF THEIR POSITION OR POPULARITY BEGUILE YOU AWAY FROM ….DID GOD REALLY SAY?
WE KNOW WHAT GOD REALLY SAID ITS IN THE WORD, IN PLAIN SIGHT, SO DON’T BE TEMPTED BY A MONEY MAKING FALSE GOSPEL,
thumbnailCA3X1CNY

blah blah blah

OR YOUR BEST LIFE NOW FALSE GOSPEL,
Lakewood-Church

you have enough problems so I will not tell you the whole truth so you will feel better

OR ANY OTHER FALSE GOSPEL THAT PROMISES YOU WONDERFUL THINGS.
Mathew 24 will continue this year and until the end of time, but where there is light, there is freedom, and there is NO DARKNESS.
SO LET THERE BE LIGHT, OPEN THE EYES OF THE BLIND, PURIFY OUR HEARTS IN YOUR FIRE, BREATH ON US WE PRAY, JESUS HAVE YOUR WAY.
AND REMEMBER ……. THE DARKNESS HAS ….NO….POWER OVER THE LIGHT….SO SHINE ON THIS YEAR.

ACTS 29 TODAY

coming to the knowledge of the TRUTH

**********************************************************************************

December 25th

The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine (he was the first Christian Roman Emperor). A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on the 25th December.
Well there are many inconsistency’s surrounding Christmas, and many people don’t even know that Christmas is to celebrate the BIRTH OF CHRIST.
There was a recent poll in America and around 46% of people said that Christmas was not a religious holiday, or in other words not about the birth of Jesus.

Santa clause has replaced Jesus in the commercial world and here is a link of how it went from patron saint Nicholas to Santa clause.
So now Christmas has become a money making endeavor dominated by marketing and is quit frankly sickening to be around, I left Babylon (USSA) some 4 years ago.

really

In Thailand where I now live they do not celebrate Christmas much as it is a Buddhist country. I find it very refreshing, there are a few decorated trees at the malls but the people don’t make a big deal about it.

The point is as believers we celebrate the birth of Jesus everyday because we now have eternal LIFE, SO LETS JUST THANK GOD FOR JESUS COMING TO EARTH TO BRING US SALVATION…..THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL.

thank you Jesus for coming to earth

FROM ALL OF US ( me ) AT ACTS 29 TODAY, HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS.

AND REMEMBER JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.

Even the beggars don’t take cash in China, you can give by scanning the QR code, amazing but true.

Also much persecution is coming FOR BELIEVERS and in some countries IS already there, are we ready or ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL.

REPEATING HISTORY

**********************************************************************************

In keeping with the subject WHY IS THE CHURCH LEAVING THE BUILDING? I will add some more great information.

Some say believers leave the building (Church) because they lost their faith, but the majority of them left to PROTECT THEIR FAITH.

is it over yet

I remember back in those early days when I figured out something was drastically wrong with the Sunday morning service and it took all of the faith I could muster up Monday thru Saturday just to go to the building where some of the Church was meeting and sit through the service, and in those days no smart phones to entertain us during the service like they do now.

Image result for on smart phone during church service

thank GOD for smart phones

Anyway this message by Frank Viola who left the institutional / organized Church at 23 and never went back will help us understand more on this subject.

LISTEN AT YOUR OWN RISK.

ACTS 29 TODAY

coming to the knowledge of the TRUTH

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Christianity today reported in 2009….1 million Christians leave the building that some of the church meets in on Sunday mornings EVERY YEAR……1,500 pastors leave the building that some of the church meets in on Sunday mornings EVERY MONTH....12 million people worldwide. They left the building NOT THE CHURCH.… Do the math and find out why they are leaving.

church images

First of all they are leaving because of an IDENTITY CRISES, most of the Christians today believe the BUILDING IS THE CHURCH.

Listen to what they say, where do you go to Church?

If we are the Church then we can not go to what we already are, we don’t go to Church….we are the Church.

milanfacade

This is my Church....or they point to the building on the corner with a cross on top and say that is my Church. Again that building is not the Church and it certainly is NOT YOUR CHURCH…..WE ARE THE CHURCH AND ITS JESUS CHURCH.

The point is when my identity changes from GOING TO CHURCH…..TO BEING THE CHURCH there is an amazing transformation and I realize that BEING THE CHURCH IS A 24/7 THING, NOT SOMETHING I GO TO FOR A FEW HOURS AND THEN LEAVE AND I AM SOMETHING ELSE THE REST OF THE WEEK.

For many of us it just boiled down to TO MUCH OF NOT ENOUGH.

sleeping in church

is it over yet

The Sunday morning service I found out is not even scriptural and when you find out where it came from and how we got to this point you will be amazed, read Pagan Christianity by Frank Viola and George Barna for the complete story and history of this.

As a result of this institutional service, at some point in time as a believer grows they will have to have more than this 1-2 hr tid bit can provide.

It also is lacking in a family affair and believers must have that family closeness.

As I traveled the world in mission work what I heard the most from believers everywhere, was they did not feel that anyone really cared about them and their struggles on a real level.

Going to the building on Sunday morning has become a SPECTATOR SPORT, with no opportunity for body ministry, so with no involvement other than singing a few songs and of course giving your money to keep the building model going, there is nothing else to do.

Lakewood-Church

The Sunday morning building service has become a business.BIG BUSINESS, IF I CAN JUST GET MORE PEOPLE = MORE $$$$ = BIGGER BUILDING + MORE PEOPLE = MORE $$$ = MY PRIVATE JET, MANSION, LAMBORGHINI, ETC

IMG_3318

But to do that the message must be more and more watered down so the people will stay, just tell nice story’s and tell people how wonderful they are, and how GOD WANTS THEM TO JUST HAVE THEIR …BEST…LIFE NOW.

Lakewood-Church

Amazing Jesus had 12 disciples and yet today they have thousands in their buildings but not much fruit. THEY ACCOMPLISHED SO MUCH WITH SO LITTLE, TODAY WE ACCOMPLISH SO LITTLE WITH SO MUCH.

Because of these things people get bored, and tired of false doctrine, and not being made disciples, Jesus said to make disciples not entertain people, the Sunday morning service is not set up to make disciples.

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Jesus taught his disciples, but there came a time WHEN HE SENT THEM OUT TO DO WHAT THEY HAD BEEN TAUGHT AND SHOWN.

IMAGINE, IF THE BIGGEST MEGA CHURCH IN AMERICA SENT OUT THE 30,000

SPECTATORS THAT COME EVEY SUNDAY TO WATCH A SHOW ( THAT’S WHAT

MORGAN FREEMAN SAID AFTER ATTENDING THE JOEL OSTEEN SERVICE….THAT

WAS SOME SHOW) AND SENT THEM OUT ON THE STREETS OF HOUSTON TX TO DO

WHAT GOD CALLED THEM TO DO, PREACH THE GOSPEL, HEAL THE SICK, CAST OUT

Image result for preach the gospel heal the sick raise the dead

DEMONS, BAPTIZE IN WATER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, SHOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST

TO THE BROKEN HEARTED, AND BRING DELIVERANCE TO THE CAPTIVES.

IF ONLY 1% GOT SAVED, OR HEALED, OR DELIVERED, THAT’S 3,000 PEOPLE AND THE ONES WHOSE LIVES WOULD BE CHANGED THE MOST…..IS THE CHURCH THAT LEFT THE BUILDING.

The 1 man band is another reason people leave the building, and as entertaining as the 1 man band is……it only last so long and then people move on. God never designed that the Church (you and I) would only have one input, NO THIS IS A BODY AND HAS MANY PARTS AND EACH MUST DO HIS OR HER PART FOR THE WHOLE BODY TO FUNCTION.

Image result for 1 man band

even has his offering plate out

Well there are many reasons the Church is leaving the building and looking for the real expression of the Church on earth and we will find it in time as the Church that Jesus is building is people…..not a Mormon temple.

ACTS 29 TODAY

COMING TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH


 

Well its hard to know where to start on this subject but suffice it to say, the term Christian does not mean the same thing as it did in 1972 when they said I was now a Christian. Then it was generally believed that a Christian was a person who was born again / from above / spiritually and in most cases baptized in water, and filled or baptized in / with the Holy Spirit and had the gift of tongues, and believed the Bible to be the word of God, etc,etc.

Now in the latter part of 2017 Christian could mean any number of things and beliefs, that range from fringe doctrines and practices to outright cults and sects. Many who are identifying themselves as Christian today are not even born again / from above so have no idea what is truly going on spiritually.

Image result for CHRISTIAN CULTS

JIM JONES (DONT DRINK THE KOOL AIDE)

Christianity today is seen by the world as…………………………….

Christianity[note 1] is an Abrahamic monotheistic[1] religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, who is the focal point of the Christian faith. It is the world’s largest religion,[2][3] with over 2.4 billion followers,[4][5][6] or 33% of the global population, known as Christians.[note 2] Christians make up a majority of the population in 158 countries and territories.[6] They believe that Jesus is the Son of God and the savior of humanity whose coming as the Messiah (the Christ) was prophesied in the Old Testament.[7] Christianity has played a prominent role in the shaping of Western civilization.[8][9][10][11][12]

Throughout its history, Christianity has weathered schisms and theological disputes that have resulted in many distinct churches and denominations. Worldwide, the largest branches of Christianity are the Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, Oriental Orthodoxy, as well as thousands of denominations and congregations of Protestantism, the latter due to fundamentally different ecclesiology. The Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches broke communion with each other in the East–West Schism of 1054. Protestantism came into existence in the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century, splitting from the Catholic Church.[25]

So when someone ask me if I am a Christian now….my answer is ALWAYS NO…..the reason, because whatever there particular view of Christians or Christianity is ..is how they will view me if I say I am a Christian and I don’t want to be identified as being part of a religion.

In the description above Christianity is just one of several major RELIGIONS.

HERE’S A NEWS FLASH……………………………………

BEING A BORN AGAIN / FROM ABOVE / SPIRITUALLY…..A BELIEVER IN JESUS IS…….

NOW WE CAN ONCE AGAIN BE IN FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD AND HAVE THAT PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS AND BE LED AND FED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.

holyspirit

So my answer to ” am I a Christian? is …no.…the next question is usually then what are you? My answer is I am a BELIEVER.….next question, believer in what? And now we are getting somewhere…. ah I am a believer in Jesus Christ.

The word of god says that who so ever BELIEVETH / BELIEVES IN HIM (JESUS) WOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.

JESUS NEVER CALLED US TO BE CHRISTIANS HE CALLED US TO BE BELIEVERS, THE ROMANS FIRST CALLED BELIEVERS CHRISTIANS .

its just a brand name and we don’t need brand names, the early believers where also know as followers of the the way or people of the way. When I was a director at a school for challenged teens, I was speaking on Sundays a lot, and one Sunday morning I said : you know there will be no Catholics in heaven, no Baptist in heaven, no Lutherans in heaven, no evangelicals in heaven, or Pentecostals etc,etc.

Some kids where so upset, some even told their parents and they where upset, but I told them the only people who are in heaven are

BELIEVERS……… IN JESUS

There is only ONE CHURCH.….and its not a building, its a people , the one JESUS is building, that’s all…one Church, the body of Christ…..many parts, but one body.

Image result for the church jesus built

There will be no denominations, divisions, or factions in heaven, as those are completely man made.

until next time remember, IF YOU DENOMINATED YOUR PHYSICAL BODY, LIKE MAN HAS DIVIDED THE CHURCH……YOU WOULD BE DEAD. (picture to graphic to post)

=========================================================================

MARK 4:13 Then He said to them, “Do you not understand this parable?

8liw1a7bzfll

WAIT WHAT?

How will you understand and grasp the meaning of all the parables?

14 The sower sows the word [of God, the good news regarding the way of salvation]. 15 These [in the first group] are the ones along the road where the word is sown; but when they hear,

Satan immediately comes and takes away the word which has been sown in them.

Image result for satan comes immediately and steals the word

16 In a similar way these [in the second group] are the ones on whom seed was sown on rocky ground, who,

when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy [but accept it only superficially]; 17 and they have no real root in themselves,

Image result for i don't want persecution

so they endure only for a little while; then, when trouble or persecution comes because of the word, immediately they [are offended and displeased at being associated with Me and] stumble and fall away.

18 And others are the ones on whom seed was sown among the thorns; these are the ones

who have heard the word, 19 but the worries and cares of the world [the distractions of this age with its worldly pleasures],

PLEASUREBOAT5657390_20160816160852343_1_XLARGE

ya gotta love the prosperity gospel

and the deceitfulness [and the false security or glamour] of wealth [or fame], and the passionate desires for all the other things creep in and choke out the word, and it becomes unfruitful.

20 And those [in the last group] are the ones on whom seed was sown on the good soil; and they hear the word [of God, the good news regarding the way of salvation] and accept it and

bear fruit—thirty, sixty, and a hundred times as much [as was sown].”

Then in verse 24 Then He said to them, Pay attention to what you hear.

By …your own… standard of measurement …[that is, to the extent that …you… study spiritual truth ….and apply godly wisdom]……. it will be measured.. to you.

Image result for studying the word of god

[and you will be given even greater ability to respond]—and

more will be given to you besides. 25 For [b]whoever has [a teachable heart],….. to him more………. [understanding] will be given; and whoever does not have [a yearning for truth],……. even what he has will be taken away from him.”

Amazing truth, by….your own standard of measurement.….your own standard that you WHAT?

STUDY SPIRITUAL TRUTH AND APPLY GODLY WISDOM

=========================================================================

IT WILL BE MEASURED TO YOU

 

=========================================================================

THIS IS THE KEY, THE REVELATION, AND THE UNCOVERING OF 30 / 60 / 100 fold return.

HOW MUCH TIME AND EFFORT DO I GIVE TO STUDYING SPIRITUAL TRUTH AND APPLYING GODLY WISDOM……….THAT IS EXACTLY HOW MUCH FRUIT WILL BE BROUGHT FORTH FROM THE SEED (WORD) THAT WAS SOWN.

Image result for watching tv and playing game on phone

I GIVE 30% TO THE WORD, I GET 30 FOLD RETURN…..60%…60 FOLD RETURN

satinsgreatistweapon4ddd6d49f56a064158bc3f5b8f671b1b

IT IS UP TO US HOW FRUITFUL GODS WORD WILL BE IN AND THRU OUR LIVES, IT IS OUR OWN STANDARD OF MEASURE THAT DETERMINES HOW MUCH FRUIT WILL BE PRODUCED IN OUR LIVES.

BLESSINGS AND REMEMBER

YOU WILL……… ALWAYS FIND TIME…………… FOR THE THINGS YOU VALUE MOST
