Question: “What does it mean to have the fear of God?”

Answer: For the unbeliever, the fear of God is the fear of the judgment of God and eternal death, which is eternal separation from God (Luke 12:5; Hebrews 10:31). For the believer, the fear of God is something much different. The believer’s fear is reverence of God. Hebrews 12:28-29 is a good description of this: “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ’God is a consuming fire.’” This reverence and awe is exactly what the fear of God means for Christians. This is the motivating factor for us to surrender to the Creator of the Universe.

Proverbs 1:7 declares, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.” Until we understand who God is and develop a reverential fear of Him, we cannot have true wisdom. True wisdom comes only from understanding who God is and that He is holy, just, and righteous. Deuteronomy 10:12, 20-21 records, “And now, O Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Fear the LORD your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name. He is your praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.” The fear of God is the basis for our walking in His ways, serving Him, and, yes, loving Him.

Some redefine the fear of God for believers to “respecting” Him. While respect is definitely included in the concept of fearing God, there is more to it than that. A biblical fear of God, for the believer, includes understanding how much God hates sin and fearing His judgment on sin—even in the life of a believer. Hebrews 12:5-11 describes God’s discipline of the believer. While it is done in love (Hebrews 12:6), it is still a fearful thing. As children, the fear of discipline from our parents no doubt prevented some evil actions. The same should be true in our relationship with God. We should fear His discipline, and therefore seek to live our lives in such a way that pleases Him.

Believers are not to be scared of God. We have no reason to be scared of Him. We have His promise that nothing can separate us from His love (Romans 8:38-39). We have His promise that He will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). Fearing God means having such a reverence for Him that it has a great impact on the way we live our lives. The fear of God is respecting Him, obeying Him, submitting to His discipline, and worshipping Him in awe.

LUST

tumblr_mkwfoohLq11qg39ewo1_500In Romans 6, 7, 8:2 Christians are made free from reign of flesh. God sees lust actions misinterpreted as opportunity to relieve tension. Lust is selfishness without enduring to make appropriate fulfilment of intimacy. Lust is hidden secret action sold in adult magazines liberally as one’s right to indulge in. So self control seems like God is a kill joy. Routine habits last life time so at times spousal intimacy is neglected to self-indulge. God Who made intimacy is disgusted by such actions. The attitude one can do anything one feels to one’s body makes God really sad. In Galatians 5:24 those who belong to God as Christians are told to crucify flesh to live spiritual not carnal lives.

images (93) The Son of God Jesus Christ atoned for sin so paid hefty price for body with His precious blood. So the body is to be kept under control, not to yield to lustful thoughts and feelings. Especially feelings must be restrained in public places. If much time is spent looking at lustful images it turns on lustful thoughts. As a person thinks so is lustful emotional feelings of intense desire in body. So Holy Spirit helps to control by transforming and renewing the mind. Lust takes many form such as the lust for knowledge, the lust for sex or the lust for power. There are many images glorifying lust, selling lust advocating lust, recommending lust. The obvious question is the body belongs to God the Creator. So nobody has the right to permission to lust or the right to promote lust and encourage lust at the expense of people. The importance of lust is over-hyped and often starts in playgrounds. Young children sneak and peep as childhood fun and little harmless secret watching cartoon graphic drawings.All these influence desires, lustful thoughts, emotions and actions.Pretty it graduates to newspapers and porn magazines and adult film. Yet it is seen as selfishness as the one indulging has no qualms of other’s dignity.

Adult films and top magazine racks are full of images of lust and blatant sexuality. Some images were especially obvious without appropriate virtuous cover. The body language portrayed by the images endorse lust engaging in psychological lust of models. Most images are provocations provoking sexual expressing desire.  Lust is over-sexualized in a culture manipulating minds of people often with sense of humour undertones which makes it seem as harmless bit of fun and jokes. It is deep yet subtle but permeates life with sexual images and messages of lust.Lust is exaggerated as part of sex to fool people into thinking happiness depends on being forever sexually attractive and sexually active.

Such inordinate craving for body pleasures, passionate overmastering desires or cravings are lust. Lust has an element of power and control to abuse of others, self-abuse lust for life. An extreme or ardent enthusiasm to relish in lustful pleasures of greed to acquire more than needed. Full of  zest for constant pleasure and gratification of the flesh. Some have over-bearing lust for life so train, draw in and suck others to partake us to lust even when they refuse or don’t feel like it. Lust is packaged and sold as romantic feeling of love to deceive naive ones looking for affection in wrong places. Lust is associated with food, sale of products including food.

Often one sees, hears or reads adverts with lust language innuendos. Genuine love is not these. It is important to clarify the difference between true love and lust. Love is is not just affection with a reeling sensation and feeling impulsive; scatterbrained. Some wanting to be exclusively isolated and ostracised for just the warm  feelings of lust so take advantage of others. God is not impressed so will ask to account for use of body. Real love includes warts and all. Love is action of commitment to be selfless, humble, generous, kind and self-controlled. To live for our spouse, children, family and others. We learn to be courageous as others are inter dependent so rely on us.

So true genuine love cannot be taken for granted, although lust is seen everywhere. Lust is also greed for material things to indulge eyes and the flesh. It is an insatiable appetite for things without limit. One becomes obsessed and consumed wanting more. Particularly when they talk about lust the motivation is addiction for attention. Sanctity of love life is redefined as lust to lure people into delusion thinking it is so. Constantly focusing, condoning, engaging in eccentric lustful acts is wrong belief of really enjoying life. Encouraging people to dwell exclusively only on lust aspect of life magnifies beyond all proportions.

So becomes preoccupied into pornography by concentrating largely on physical attraction.For such individuals lust is sometimes uncontrollable and completely unreasonable. Lust can be also passion for creativity, art, skills or career beyond normal reality. Often confused with love of hard work. Lust is not love if you that obsession takes over life so one ignores health, self grooming, personal care, just making money, profit for status, 15 minute of fame. Deprives devotion to God, family, colleagues and loved ones.

ENTER GOD’S PRESENCE BOLDLY

redbloodIn Matthew 27:51, 1 Corinthians 11:23; 1 Corinthians 11:24; John 6:51; John 6:53; John 6:54; John 6:56; John 6:57; John 6:61-63; Hebrews 10:19–22; and Hebrews 10:20 since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, therefore, brethren, boldly enter into Holiest of Holies by the blood of Jesus. In verse 22, let us draw near to enter into the PRESENCE IN GOD’S SANCTUARY THRONE ROOM. As new creations sanctified and consecrated through the blood of Jesus, We QUALIFY BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. As the temple veil ripped when Christ was crucified, it symbolised an open door policy of God extending the exclusive privilege of only high priests entering Holy of Holies.download.png

GOD EMPOWERS us TO COME DIRECTLY TO HIM. It sounds too daring and too good to be true. Because God once said people cannot come too near or too close previously in the old Testament covenant. However, the New Testament Covenant fulfilled by Christ enhanced by His Blood enables all to draw near to God Almighty like a very close personal friend. Sin separated mankind from the close personal relationship with God once enjoyed by Adam and Eve. In the ancient tabernacles only High Priest entered God’s Presence. Christ’s Sacrifice extends VIP Entry invitation to all His believers

Their original sin contamination caused a defect which God’s Holy Presence previously could not tolerate so was passed on to humanity. With forgiveness of all sins Christ restored the agape intimate loving relationship. God’s words do not return void but accomplish what God sends it to do. Recognize each other in the realization that God means ALL, including men, women and children. The mercy and grace of God is for believers to accept by faith finished work of Christ come boldly into God’s Presence. God says in Joel He will pour His Spirit upon all flesh, your Sons and Daughters will dreamGodly dreams means old men, women and young people will see visions of God, Christ, as God chooses. Like the prodigal son’s Father, God keeps His Front Door Wide open waiting to catch glimpse of prodigals coming back to their senses to return to God. To enjoy fullness of joy refreshing times in the Presence of God.God’s arms are wide open, not counting sins washed away by blood of Jesus. So instead of feeling sorry for yourself, YOU DO something about it yourself by coming closer to God. Those who Love God, accept and know God as a Genuine Loving, Caring, Father, Provider, interested in daily lives so find it easier to come nearer into God’s Presence. God is presented as autocratic, cruel, wicked, only on the lookout for faults to punish. Do not need to draw near to Almighty God as taught only priests, rabbis, prophets, pastors, ministers have exclusive access to God. Christ consecrates us to contact God like Moses and 70 elders ate, drank with God in Exodus 24:1-14 and Numbers 11:16 on Mount Sinai, saw God WHO anointed them for God’s business and lived. So God sent Christ in human form to interact to show how to live in God’s presence. Christ mixed with all sorts to prove God loves so welcomes all in HIS PRESENCE.  Religious people with the form of Godliness deny GOD’S POWER, deprive others a direct approach to God through Christ to God’s Children.

In Heaven believers live day-to-day directly in God’s Presence rejoicing in celebration eternally forever. In Hebrews 8:11, God said, everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know God. Those who receive and bear the Spirit of God are led to the Word the Son. So Christ the Son of God takes believers up to presents us to Father God. No one will teach fellow citizens, believers, family members, brothers, etc. saying know God because all shall know God in themselves, nobody will any longer teach people his Words for everyone will know God for Himself. God is saying become aware of God directly not to lean too much on others only learn of God.

So must grow up to seek God directly as God wants them to call upon Him directly too. Not to give His Glory to anyone but come to Him through blood of Christ Jesus. God’s ultimate will is we are set free in Christ as men and women to rise to our full potential to take responsibility. Rights of God’s Kingdom include supporting to win spiritual battle war. As Royal Priest and Kings of God each individual believer is more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. To lead believers to wake up from demanding pampering to become soldiers of the Cross to know God and understand themselves.God says each person young or old or new believers needs to get known actively directly by God Himself. God wants to get to know each person personally to promote them for exposure to win more souls. God has only Children, not grandchildren. A church one size does not fit all Christian believers. God understand needs through blood of Christ. Encourage spiritual growth to be kind to each other in church. Remember rapture is personal private matter. Always learning word but not bearing good fruit. Power of Cross in BLOOD of Christ and the WORD of God commands all with permission to enter HOLY of HOLIES to learn more drawing closer to  God to mature by faith.

Leaders must not be narcissistic to replace God but allow the direct contact of the flock with God. Like lolly pop lady directs traffic safely,  the sheep must follow shepherd to God through Christ. We must not prefer to be pew warmer elite senior church club member fighting where to seat in church, colour of church carpet, drinking tea. So with the things going on in the secular world , Christians must be stronger in God in Christ. So must boldly share God’s word to win souls. Instead of imposing themselves on pastors to kowtow to meet their emotional needs for sponsoring church.

Encourage, respect, honour authority, attend church not live as hermit but seek God directly in Christ. We must not neglect assembling together to worship God! Continue to give due honour to shepherd but read Bible for yourself for there is no second-hand faith. Leaders, congregation absolutely seek God together but run spiritual race individually to enter the Holy of Holies through the blood of Christ Jesus. Coming nearer God does not mean this breeds familiarity but gives a spirit of humility and reverence of God. Every loving father wants a personal intimate relationship with a child. God our Divine, Holy Father loves us mortals to come near to call His Name by faith in healthy fear of God for personal relationship with God.Snap2double hands

HELP MEET

The God of Love is the One who Helps Meet the Greatest Need so makes it possible to help meet needs of spouse. God Almighty Creator of marriage decided marriage helps meet needs. So God Helps meet all needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus in Philippians 4:19. A healthy marriage is among keys to healthy community, so imperative to help meet needs of spouse to ensure Biblical accountability. People need encouragement because of how the reality of a relationships turns out to be. To strengthen marriage, a lot more detail needs to be put in to guide natural changes of progression. Growing through years of dating, marriage, settling down, running home successfully requires input from both spouses working together as team on same page.

Soon after marriage pressure is on couple to produce a child. Whether financially ready or not becomes topic conversation and main question. The family increasing from couple to include child care involves particular changes taking place. Those keenly interested to demand child from couple may not necessarily be available to help provide childcare when needed. So with conception comes specific child care requirements. It is important to continue to help meet need of spouse. So spouse shifts focus to expectant mother, often celebrated and supported. Conception may go on smoothly without difficulties. Couples have a wonderful time welcoming new-born baby in family. In terms of nurturing children, child bearer woman, does most of child care raising child initially until able to rally support and extra help.

This is true due to the sacrifice and way conception affects women’s feelings and emotions so highly respected. Yet spouse must remember the child is a need God meets in the relationship so must be treated as a gift from God. Although, it takes a whole village to raise a child, the most immediate person who influences or nurtures the baby directly is the mother. As pregnancy progresses, the hormones change. An expectant woman has morning sickness so may feel sick. At times natural body scent of a man, once attractive becomes repellent smell. This change causes a women to reject man for intimacy. The man needs to understand the woman still loves him dearly but hormones affect response to him. This last depending on nature of pregnancy until feels better or till delivery in extreme cases.

The woman may move into a spare room if marital bedroom has too strong masculine odour for her hormonal nose to deal with. If marital bedroom is all right for hormones to handle, the man moves into spare bedroom or sofa for a season. This means spouses not having usual deep intimate affection during that period in pregnancy. The man may resent and sulk being left alone on the sofa without cosy body warmth of wife during such moments. Some men resent baby for taking their special place in the heart of the spouse. Meanwhile wife tosses and turns with inconvenience body discomfort, pain of pregnancy, body swelling yet by herself in bed. Due to threat of miscarriage suspend intimacy for a while. This is time to seek God’s face intensely, not drift apart.

Cravings mean the man runs around to meet demands at odd hours to satisfy her needs. So both spouses are learning and adjusting to come to terms with true practical realities of love life and marriage. This shocking changes to relationships are unpredictable so unforeseen and unprepared for. By the time baby is delivered safely or by stressful means, the spouse is exhausted but relieved it is all over. So spouse may look forward at last to restore intimacy of marriage. Only to be disappointed and let down by maternal instincts of spouse kicking in. The spouse’ attention is fully switched onto baby to the shock and horror of suffering, enduring spouse waiting for fantasy reunion of intimacy.The man feels invincible used as baby maker machine although happy to be a father. This is the beginning of causes of rifts in relationships if spouse becomes too deeply engrossed with only the needs of the baby more and more than with the spouse. This is when trusted relatives can help to support and give respite care while the couple redates and reforms a new relationship based on current circumstances. This is important but very difficult for the mother emotionally connected to the baby. She carried baby 9 months so child becomes part of her body. Bonding from conception to delivery, seeing baby after birth, means her attention shifts completely first and foremost to caring for helpless infant innocent totally dependent on mother.

This further isolates the spouse who feels ostracised further. So some immature men actually become jealous of the attention showered on new-born baby. Forgetting their own mothers once  did the same to nurture them too. This is a critical time in the home as laundry and dishes pile up, the cleaning of the home, shopping for food, washing powder, soap, toilet tissue, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, sanitary products, nappies, diapers often in short supply plus other essential priorities left undone. The baby’s arrival may create a disorganised home different from the 2 couple’s lifestyle. Yet pressure mounts to keep it all together. Spouse is sore, bloated not in mood for love, feels unappreciated, misunderstood, stressed by spouse to regain confidence to start rebuilding body to a pre-conception shape of happy, strong best self.

Some immature men in stereotypical Christian relationship accuse spouse of not being a good house keeper, not cooking on time, not up to date with expected duties and roles. A good supportive spouse will step in to love, support more to ensure life is negotiated to be involved in a new dimension. To do things differently but remember to make room for each other. In Christian marriage, God comes first, the couple second and  children in third place. An infant must not be so cared for to allow to take over a home. Remember despite stress not to run household based only on requirements of infant. It takes discipline as maternal instincts take over so strongly mother feels torn apart from baby physically part of her body and life. Spouse must support gently not resent change.

It is impossible for men and single women who never bore a child to fully  understand such a strong bond of a mother and child. The mother can travel a 1000 miles away but her maternal antennae, instincts and gut feelings are fixated on baby if left at home. Although mother is sure baby is in safe hands, cannot switch off emotionally. Spouse operates on auto-pilot not deeply connected to spouse any more as before in marriage. must help to agree to centre conversation first on baby first. Then later discuss how to adapt to changes in relationship. A mother must not be made to forget baby or forced to stop talking about baby. It is necessary to gently in love, make spouse aware if she persists on exclusive focus on baby she is damaging marriage without realising it.

In addition, if it was a difficult pregnancy she will feel more attached than usual while the long-suffering spouse endures lack of affection intimacy for nearly a year or more. The spouse is usually not in the mood for intimacy as often weighed down by stress of the baby’s needs. So the man becomes more frustrated,  if not fully involved as hands on father. In some cultures children are seen as women’s job so men are not included. It is essential to remember to help meet man affectionately. Some men are pressured to look for relieve elsewhere in fresh undamaged girlfriend mistress. Forgetting they are cause the changes to spouse’ body. Some get new wife with consent permission of first wife but does not necessarily solve problem of the moment in polygamous context. The Bible says to love in same way Jesus loved us by willing to sacrifice to help meet needs.

Both spouse must endeavour to adjust to changes faced together. Born again Christian believers, young wives need support, advice from more experienced wives in Titus 2:4. These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children. To teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children. The dynamics of change in marriage is so intense so requires extra input. It wise to receive help and feel incompetent. It wise the couple not burn bridges in dating and marriage. The same people one meets up aisle are same people met on way down. In addition, bonding with children excluding spouse has domino knock on effect. After children grow up, leave home couple have nothing in common. Some women experience empty nest syndrome feeling nothing to live for. Yet can do all activities given up to raise family again.

This issue is not known during dating as couple focus exclusively on each other. Being the centre of each other’s attention intimately means bonding and cleaving in  certain way. However, the child becomes a third-party involved through transitional changes of the relationship. Their assumptions before conception seems couple think they fully know what to do before child-birth. After childbirth the whole relationship needs love review plus coping mechanisms for infant. To co-operative with spouse not to cause irreparable damage to marriage. It is important to try to return to adapted life as normal as possible after birth of children. God helps spouses to meet needs and vice versa. In a masculine society some think it means looking after man to ensure he is happy.

The Bible speaks of the Holy Spirit dwelling within and treating body as holy temple. So intimacy must be realistic and fair as the hormones affect the relationship. One cannot misunderstand or blame spouse for not being an excellent partner. Support spouse to mend rift to patch quickly to not drift apart if they cannot cope with changes. As child care issue continue to affect families, often most wives pay a heavy price with career or profession. So feel abandoned by spouse for caring for sick child, may mean juggling jobs, career, mortgage, caring for elderly parents of couple. Literally being left with baby, means sacrificing, doing without basic necessities. If disability issues involved plus child care a man may carry on regardless with promotions in career.Some may go on vendetta refusing to pay sick child’s support. Once new partner enters equation the man’s focus is on new family so ignores first-born and first family. This issue contributes a lot to relationship breakdown. It may not be extreme as this scenario here  states but it necessary not to focus only on the intimate side as the cementing factor as it may change depending on the woman’s libido after birth. A help meet means helping meet both spouses’ needs. In addition, children are entrusted for a season to parents as stewards so move on to lead their own lives. This is why the couple must relate with family members or become isolated on their own. Submission to spouse is 2 way relationship not master slave submission. God created both spouse as gift from God created to fill needs in spouse’s life through Christ. Marriage is not exclusively to make only one spouse happy.

A child raised to feel more important than a spouse does not respect that spouse even though biological parent. So feels like the centre of focus ruling the roost. Pretty soon that child discovers the world does not revolve around them as parent’s made them to feel. They find it harder to make friends or respect adults as made to feel above parent by spouse. They expect all people encountered to treat them as used to being treated from home. To help meet needs guide a child to respect both spouse right from birth by inclusive involvement of spouse. Continue to seek God’s face in Bible as Scriptures tell us to meditate on His Words night and day  in Joshua 1:8. Encourage spouse she is really doing well. Openly talk about feelings with each other.

A good sign of recovery is also to make her feel more confident and reassured she is not alone. Remember others been there so can guarantee there is definitely light at the end of longest darkest tunnel. God’s words say a child taught to obey, submit and honour adults will live long so it will be well with them. The child disciplined to respect spouse early respects authority. Remember, daily, thousands of families make decisions based on wrong advice forgetting if advice does not work they bear the brunt. Seek Godly advice, not reality TV drama input secular text-book view on marriage. Those seeking commitment for life’s journey for long haul till death parts need God’s grace to Help Meet Needs. Through storms of changes in marriage time out family vacation can help.Check with GP, doctors to ensure spouse is not experiencing postpartum depression. Support her with love, understanding, pampering with treats. Speak affirmation words in front of mirror. Use bright lights, create vibrant atmosphere, play favourite music, eat healthy meals, no junk food as chemicals cause depression, no coffee after 6pm causes not to have deep refreshing sleep for repairing body to keep in good health. Spoil yourself with hot baths, rose petals, live life like when first found greatest love of your life. Enjoy positive words, do not put each other down. The Lord God will Heal You. to share your testimony with the world. Forgive each other and do not live in bitterness to feel much better. Let God deal with hurts under cross of Christ to impact others.

FREEDOM IN CHRIST

Freedom is assumed to mean liberty to feel free to do as one pleases without restraint or constraint. This mindset has seeped into Christianity so people feel God can be served according to how they feel, think, like or prefer. In real life if there are no rules to guide or direct us there will be chaos. It is simply not a good idea to lean onto own understanding to do own thing. A mind clouded by obsession passion does not think straight. Clearly one’s judgement becomes flawed by focusing on intended object or action. This is why God sends the Holy Spirit to help Christian believers.

In addition, it is imposible for people to think life can have good success without God. Superficially, although they seem outwardly OK, but beneath is confusion and turmoil. God knows human life is truly meaningless without Christ or sound Biblical foundation. True Christian lifestyle sweetness is in eating of faith pudding. Unless one tastes and sees God is good, one cannot ever fully understand or really comprehend God. Permissive will is granted by those who did not create protype humans, or own them as Patented Rightful Maker. Not around to help families deal with rebellious consequences of permissive will freedom presumably granted.

Right now there are freedoms that seem the right favour is done to endorse some particular actions. Although contradicts God’s law seem like approval given, so alright to act as law permits. However, most choosing freedom based on freedom of choice do not really understand what God said in the first place. So Ezekiel 3:33 and 33:3 says to help people understand God’s position on all matters. One has to fully obey God’s commandments as one cannot have pick and mix Christianity.

It is interesting those most in need of freedom in Christ naively refuse wisdom so reject knowledge of God. Yet willing to believe and trust more in man – made gurus, self-proclaimed secular expert authorities, psychologies to own hurt and destruction. They seem to make consistent attempt to try in vain to debunk God using secular freedom of human ideas and expression. God does not allow recklessness in the name freedom.

Think about it for a minute. How do most people in the world interpret word  “freedom?” Isn’t it described by most as ability to do what they want, when they want, and with whomever they want? We see for many, this “freedom” translates into chasing after some very dangerous and risky things. They aren’t looking for the wholesome “good, clean” kind of fun. Sadly, they want to “cut loose,” drinking to excess, and mixing with a raucous crowd.

This may be definition of freedom to some but when we consider the consequences of these actions, it really isn’t freedom at all. In fact, choosing to live in this manner actually leads to slavery binding up in chain of sinful nature! In Galatians 5: 13-14, 19-23, Apostle Paul speaks of another kind of freedom, one which offers us the reward of a higher value than anything else in or of this world. Hear what he says to Christians in Galatia, and to all of us as well here:-

“You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather serve one another in love. The entire law for God’s people is summed up in a single command: Love God with your whole body, mind and soul and ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ ” 

In Galatians 5:19-23, Apostle Paul implied:- Freedom to indulge selfishly, misleads others for lust, so the flesh is gratified at the expense of others. One tells sweet nothings, promise the moon, lead on until fed up, dumps, moves on to hurt others. Real True Love thinks through the impact, of emotional trauma, deep hurt injury caused to other Children of God. Freedom means one is set free indeed from bondage of sin in Jesus Name. To live for God, serve God, win souls, show compassion to all.Courtesy: True Light on Freedom

NO HOROSCOPES

God holds the whole world in His Hands because He Created space, universe, people, all creatures, seas and all things. As The Exclusive Patented Creator Owner, God Holds Title Deeds to all Souls Property and Assets. God is Absolutely in charge of all  life so it is an abomination to God for His Beloved Children to seek to see future through others, horoscope fortune telling, palm reading. Or seek witchdoctors who cast spells, medium or practice spiritism. The Bible says do not waste your time trying to learn that which is simply not true. There is no magic, charm, spell that has power to help except Power of Living God through Christ Jesus.

God-and-Wisdom

In the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, Almighty God creator of heaven and earth demands absolute loyalty during end- time season in history. God instructs people to focus exclusively in monogamous relationship to serve him alone. There is no truth that in planets made by God is fate of anyone. It means trusting in space objects than in God the Creator Maker. Attaching zodiac symbols to planets, sun, moon, stars is sin against God. Some put confidence, trust in man – made ideas to look up to man not God through Christ. God does not agree with interpretation of His planets not found in Bible.

 So do not give divided attention to God to seek other sources of power for help. God sifts real believers to ensure their total commitment, loyalty. In Exodus 7:11 psychic magician sorcerors copied Moses’ Miracle but God’s Superior Power swallowed them to prove God’s Super Power. God commands in Exodus 22:18, “You shall not permit a sorcerer to live. In Leviticus 19:26, “You shall not eat flesh with blood, for life in the blood belongs to God or interpret omens or tell fortunes. Christian believers are to only Look up to the Only Living God Almighty to help through the Name of Christ Jesus.

Astrology had its birth in Ancient Babylon, a civilization with a long history of demon possession and bloodshed.

In Leviticus “20:6 “If a person turns to mediums, necromancers, whoring after them, I will set my face against that person and cut him off from among his people. In Leviticus 20:27 “A man or woman who is a medium, witch or a necromancer, witchdoctor shall surely be put to death with stones and their blood shall be upon them.”

In Deuteronomy 4:19 And beware lest you raise your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun and the moon and stars, all the host of heaven, to be drawn away to bow down to or serve them. Do not serve things your God has allotted to all people under the whole heaven. Do not deal with wizards, omens, mediums, necromancy charms, amulets, talismans, beads, tokens, objects, superstition, or serve what you see in sky, sun, moon and stars or practice palm reading and fortune telling.

In Deuteronomy 17:2-5 “If there is found among you, within any of your towns, God gives you, a man or woman who does such evil in the sight of the Lord your God then transgressed His covenant. If gone and served other gods and worshipped the sun or the moon or any of the host of heaven, I forbid it. As God told and you hear of it, you shall inquire diligently. And true, certain abomination was done in Israel, you shall bring out to your gates man or woman who did this evil thing.

You shall stone man or woman to death with stones. Love life, products, calendars, jewels, lipsticks, perfumes etc. are  linked to horoscopes.In Deuteronomy 18:10-14 “When you come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who burns son or daughter as offering anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes.

Or interprets omens, sorcerer or charmer or medium or necromancer or one who inquires of dead, whoever does these things is abomination to God. Because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. Be blameless before God for the nations, which you are about to dispossess are punished for listening to fortune-tellers and diviners. The Lord your God has not allowed you to do these abominations.

advertise-self-serve-adIn Deuteronomy 18:20-22 The prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.’ If you say in your heart, ‘How may we know word the Lord has not spoken?’when a prophet speaks in the name of God the word must come to pass if true, if not prophet spoke presumptuously. Practice of baal worship infiltrated Jewish religious Godly life during time of Judges 3:7. So spiritualists interpret life, even if accurate the occult power behind it is not Biblical from God in Christ as seen here.

many_bodiesIn I Kings 19, Prophet Elijah demonstrated God’s Power unfolded greatly to humiliate baal worship. In open conflict challenge between two faiths, the followers of Yahweh and baal, Elijah stood before the crowd and said,”How long are you going to try to worship Baal and Jehovah? You cannot serve both gods. If baal is God, worship him! Elijah declared. God The Consuming Fire Answered by Fire to prove He is God.” As baal was god of fire, God’s Fire from heaven came to consume Prophet Elijah’s Sacrifice as all baal worshippers looked on.

Prophet Elijah took on priest of baal on Mt. Carmel single-handedly 450 prophets of the false Caananite god baal and defeated them so said, if the LORD is God, follow him; but if baal is God, follow him. God wants worshippers to Honour him better than the worshippers of baal in service of the devil. This does not please Queen Jezebel who sets out to destroy Elijah. He is afraid of her and warriors sent after him, fled to Negev wilderness desert and taken alive to heaven in God’s chariot. ImageIn 2 Kings 21:6. Manasseh burned his son as an offering and used fortune-telling and omens and dealt with mediums and with necromancers. He did evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking him to anger yet God forgave and extended his life 15 years. In 1 Chronicles 10:13-14 Saul was unfaithful to God, for his transgressed and committed sin against God. He did not keep word of God, went against word of God. Kept not word, consulted medium for counsel who had familiar spirit to enquire for guidance. Saul died for breach of faith in God so do not join in such acts.

He broke faith with the Lord in that he did not keep the command of the Lord, and also consulted a medium, seeking guidance. He did not seek guidance from the Lord. The Lord put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse. In Isaiah 8:19, if they say inquire of mediums, necromancers who chirp and mutter,” should not a people inquire of God? Should they inquire of dead on behalf of living? In Isaiah 47:13-14, wearied with many counsels so let them stand forth saved. Those who divide heavens, gaze at stars, at new moon make known what shall come upon others are like stubble. The fire consumes them so not delivered from power of flame! In Ezekiel 13:3-10 Thus says the Lord God, Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! Your prophets have been like jackals among ruins, O Israel. You have not gone up into the breaches, or built up a wall for house of Israel, that it might stand in battle in the day of the Lord. They have seen false visions and lying divinations. They say, ‘Declares the Lord,’ when God has not sent them, and they expect him to fulfil their word. So fear God do not seek horoscopes bad for you. Negative reading promote self-indulgent behaviour as people attempt to escape fate as scientists find. jesus-1-3It is often aggressively advertised on TV, phones, newspapers etc. So told if wants to buy monthly or yearly horoscope content script pay small Fee using your mobile phone. In Daniel 2:27 Daniel answered the king and said, “No wise men, enchanters, magicians, or astrologers can show to the king the mystery that the king has asked, except by Spirit of Living God. In Micah 5:12 God says He will cut off sorceries from your hand, and you shall have no more tellers of fortunes. In Acts 16-19 while going for prayer met by slave girl who had spirit of divination and brought her owners much gain by fortune-telling. scrollShe followed Paul and us, crying out, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to you the way of salvation.” And this she kept doing for many days. Paul, having become greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And it came out that very hour. When her owners saw gain was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace before rulers. God’s Spirit defeats evil spirits but Pharaoh hates to let go.
Paul encountered a soothsayer who accurately recognised God’s Power in Paul so followed them around for several days. This is called spirit of divination and monitoring spirits. Meanwhile she was used by her masters to predict and tell fortune as a business for her masters to be paid. In Acts 19:18-20 Many of those now believers came, confessing and divulging practices. A number of those who practised magic arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all.
They counted the value of and found it came to fifty thousand pieces of silver. So the word of the Lord continued to increase and prevail mightily. In Galatians 5:20-21 Idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, avoid things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, those who do such things will not inherit kingdom of God. In John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test spirit to see if from God, for false prophets have gone out into the world. Trust in God’s word to guide you.
In Revelation 21:8 The cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in lake that burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.” In Revelation 22:15, Outside are dogs, sorcerers, sexually immoral, murderers idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. Satan performs lying sign wonders. Since Genesis in Bible the devil spoke to Adam and Eve to deceive them.
images 12In Exodus 7:9-12; 8:7, 17-19; Deuteronomy 13:1-5; Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; 2 Thessalonian 2:9; Revelation 13:13-14, 1 Samuel 28 and 1 Chronicles 10:13, 14 through mediums were messages from Satan’s evil angels. Tarot cards, ouija board are still objects so cannot speak or   communicate. The concept is that the occult spirit behind images links to demonic possession. God’s view is Christian remnant believers not to use such spiritual sources. A wise person hears and increase in learning, as a person of understanding will acquire wise counsel from God as stated in Proverbs 1:5. No matter how real or accurate the specific information given by occult medium, it is not of the Holy Spirit of God. Most people know what is best or right thing to do but choose to ask others to make decision for them. To blame when it all goes wrong. So shift responsibility, blame on others. Pray and ask Holy Spirit to help you in all choices and decisions in Christ Jesus Name.

GOD & JESUS TATTOOS

isaiah_49_16_by_houkangishiIn Isaiah 49:16, the Bible says God has engraven all His Children in the Palm of His Hands. This means you are Special to God, Loved, Highly Beloved, Valued and Known God’s permanent possession and His Friend. God’s Written or Tattooed your name so is not turning His back on you because God Loves you deeply. God is so over the top in love with us He has our names engraved and tattooed on the Palm of His Hands. Right where God Will Constantly see all His Children always by anthropomorphism.charming-jesus-tattoo-on-upper-armJesus Lovers tattoo Christ painstakingly meticulously on their body to spread their love of God. Popular art of Jesus is really beautiful taken on by long hours of people enduring pain to have Jesus put on their body to celebrate Jesus Christ. It is amazing the details of Christian Bible message highly accurate depiction of the Saviour Jesus Christ and God’s angels. So good to see Christian Gospel message  in this way boldly displayed on the body.text-layer3.jpgThis is how some people feel strongly about Gospel message good news impact on their lives so share it boldly with the world. Many wonderful designs tell love of God to bring Gospel message out loud. As a picture speaks thousand words so details portrays  art forms representing Gospel. God uses symbol images to teach lessons and give instructions from the Bible. Same principle followed by many to relate with God in a meaningful way. It includes message of Jesus crucifixion.best-jesus-tribal-tattooPeople demonstrate romantic love and affection with the tattoos of each other’s names on body to profess love boldly and publicly to show affection to their highly beloved ones. As long as the relationship lasts their tattoos remains throughout their lives deeply in love. Some people get married with tattoos on their body. In addition, to wedding rings, get wife’s name tattooed on his arm or vice versa seen as a symbolic token of Love. Visual art graphic design is the fastest form of sharing messages on God/Pin Interest.The-CrucifictionEspecially these days tattoos are a global art form among younger generations. So art competitions by studios specialising on decorating people with  tattoos held to celebrate tattoos. On the other hand the trouble with tattoo is it cannot erase easily when you change your mind. It becomes complicated married to spouse with another ex-partner’s name, picture symbol, mark as a constant reminder of what rather prefers not to remember. So people spend all rest of life entrenching themselves in defense of tattoo they got when younger. Sometimes embarrasing to carry explicit tattoo image contrary to matured wiser person one has become. It is the same way Jesus Lives with Scars of His Crucifixion for His Body Sacrifice.isiash-49-16Jesus has marks on His Hands and Feet to reveal His Unique Calling for salvation of all mankind. God does mind this mark on Jesus who gave His Life freely as a ransom for many. So no pain no gain was what Jesus did so it cost Jesus so much to save lives. Many people live with scars or marks that could not be avoided to save their lives. So when God Sees Jesus Hand Constant Reminder Redemptive images of Divine Exchange for sin, covers them by faith by the Blood of Jesus. Thereby God disconnects to deactivates any soul ties. Outwardly may seem different than genuine true inner refined personality. So symbol of past wild crazy days display previous state of mind at a stage in life. Come to terms to understand God looks at inwards parts of the heart if repents of past errors. Trust God living righteously experience reality to come to terms with.God-has-not-forgotten-youAccording to the Bible God gave laws on marking ou making cutting patterns of any kind of incisions on the body. This is because such body marks are associated with specific rituals or cults that identify members. It was a point of contact made using specially concocted secret items to rub inside body incission. Fetish priests makes pronouncements pouring libation to seal the deal of committing person to ancestors or spiritual guardians invoked to protect cult members. They are given a list of taboos and totems to observe to belong to the secret cult. They asked to eat certain good to avoid some meats or events depending on cult. Can be direct invitation into spiritual world and blind witchcraft unawares by the participants. In those moments of life Jesus Comes to Save, Deliver, Heal Translate us from the kingdom of darkness into Kingdom of the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ. image005From God’s point of view human beings He created are His Personal Patented Property engraved in Palm of His Hands. A Jealous God does not want fresco of idols or idolatory rival marks on His Own Beloved Children. So warns against it in Leviticus 19 : 27-29 states, “Do not cut or mark your bodies for the dead or put any kind of piercings tattoo mark on yourselves I AM LORD God ALMIGHTY.” Because your body is God’s Temple dwelt in by Holy Spirit. Tattoo is a logo advert images God does not approve because it is not pleasing to God but loves people anyway. Tattoos marks body in past for identification when there was no written records of family trees, photographs or DNA. So tattoos served a purpose before era of accurate record keeping emerged. Whatever the  reason for tattoo God does not reject people for marks put on skins.In a secular society against God, people are given freedom in the name of political correctness by leaders in a country to do as they like. When God told Adam and Eve not to eat from tree of life the devil gave permission to do so although he did not create, own Adam, Eve or tree. In addition, it was symbol used to mark members of cult to initiate in idol covenant relationship. A person in secret society given tattoo to prove a member of body. So Remnant Christian believer participation forbids worship of pagans god symbols. The Good Shephetd Jesus Gospel seen here. The relationship between ritual idol tattoos of ancient times linked to idolatry in some body art today. Tattoos were used extensively as pagan temple worship symbol but in Christian Church decoration. Similarly a person saved born again bears the Mark of Jesus Christ on the body too.2-Jesus-Shepherd-tattooThough some forbid it based on Leviticus 19:28 tattoos forbidden in God’s Bible Christian principles. God Wisely forbids it as some were the signs of apostasy of shedding human blood DNA in solidarity to petson mark belonging to shrine or groove. Tattoos and piercings were again used to mark slaves as belonging to the owner of property. Branding commonly used in process of burning mark into stock animal’s hide of cattle to identify ownership. Branding important aspects of the large, small, retail businesses. Effective brand strategy gives major edge to competitive markets spiritually speaking volumes. Though used to mark cattle or slaves in past now used for God.  The symbols and images tattooed often are not pleasing to God Almighty. So a Christian remnant on the few narrow way of God must decide whether they should please God or their peers. So the Bible teaches God forbids tattoos and other cosmetic body piercings. So this passage indicates tattoo is forbidden for true genuine Christian believers. God allows permissive will to grant any one who strongly feels they wish to do so. A parent may not agree with obnoxious decisions by a child so does God still love them. Without cortex make rebellious decision, get tattoos while young, regret it years later after maturity God loves all.God created people perfectly so does not need extra help to improve His authentic original design God owns the Christian believer’s body. God feels some pledge double allegiance to God and mammon by including pagan belief in Christianity. Mixed heathen fetish mark tattoos act of desecration and vandalism of Holy God’s Temple. So God wants to keep body as naturally perfect as possible for God. So God warns not to serve 2 masters to but to serve God only exclusively. The world condones tattoos as freedom of choice to live life as one pleases. People think they have personal control over the body but Christian remnant belong to God. It does not matter the flesh as much as the soul as long as the heart is right with God. So flesh will be changed transformed into Glorious heavenly body those in Christ.things-the-bible-forbids-tattoosThe Christian believer is set apart for God so belongs to God. Christ Jesus bought believers by His shed blood to redeem them from any images that gives access to spiritual connections not of the living God. God created people perfectly so does not need them to help God improve his authentic original design as God owns the Christian believer’s body. God knows a person well in detail so counted number of hair follicles on their head. In the age of political correctness some deliberately conceal tattoos to gain employment. After securing job reveal to provoke become defiant accuse company of undisclosed ploy to get compensation for discrimination. Why gain the whole world to lose your soul? For God Already Has one firmly marked upon His Hands. faedbc856fd060ce7b250d388fd7d840God knows the body so intimately so no need to advertise the body before God recognises His Own Beloved Children. Tattoos are big business sold as one best good way openly display love, affection, to take stand for cause. Christ sees using God’s body mobile bill board adverts, some took risks and even lost lives in process. Jesus said what comes out of inward inner, spirit soul, filled by Holy Spirit is what defines a person or makes holy. Man looks on the outward side but God looks on inner – heart. Spirit soul in Christ in God in tattooed etc. perfectly is giving Glory to God. Others think defiles original and authentic natural external outward beauty although the flesh pays price in pain, suffering. Salvation is in name of Jesus Christ not works of flesh. It is a controversial subject tattoo lovers feel they are attacked. Puritan believers feel they must literally abide by Bible.2ecbc4b61f9c841a9224866363acb78eSome keep tattoos of good memory but others deeply regret years later tattoo of sadnesd after loss of affection so remove it after divorce or cannot remove it although moved on in relationship. Born again Christian believers follows and Obeys God’s laws and rules. The good news is actions taken in life, things done prior to awareness full God Knowledge understanding of word of God is forgiven by God. God chose remnant not based on appearance of flesh but pure clean Godly heart. There is nothing more believers can do than rest infinished work of Christ Jesus at Calvary Cross. To believe, receive, accept Christ is enough as God does not want DNA blood sacrifices enhance His perfect sacrifice for salvation. Some do not allow tattoos in certain businesses but others have them in discreet places hidden from the public view. So the controversy of tattoos goes on in debates between opposing sides. Angels  are also depicted in tattoos.

artist--Artem_Pelipenko--Back_tattoo_0191347787881Believers with any previous tattoo before salvation did not knowing the Bible and God’s laws are forgiven by Christ and washed clean as white as snow. The good news is flesh and blood does not inherit heaven so flesh discarded on earth after demise not used in heaven. So God gives heavenly garment of righteousness. God prefers true remnant Christian believers keep body exclusive sacred holy Temple to dwell in. God does not want to share His Glorious Home body of idol symbols. Some create impression not happy with body so deface it for attention. Others have difficulty finding jobs in certain strict dress code environments. God will not stop born again believers from heaven for tattoos if repentant Christ as gives heavenly righteous garments on entryinto heavenly Joy and worship.

top-cool-back-christian-tattoosPeople are made to feel they must always give something for something to feel good. So this concept seeped into belief and faith in God, Some are made to feel they must help in some way to ensure they give some contribution back to God before they content, qualify or deserve God’s mercy and grace. Christ paid for sins by BLOOD SACRIFICE excruciating crucifixion of His Body. So all believers perfectly sanctified once repents saved cleansed blood of Jesus, no other ransom or declaration of the flesh is necessary according to Ephesians 1:7 Acts 17:11, 20:28; Romans 3:25. We have redemption through Christ. God made Christ Ultimate Priceless Paying Highest Price. So not your own but bought by Jesus. Belong to Awesome God we serve!
