EYES, EARS, NOSE & MOUTH

my-body-4-638

Ephesians 4:16 says God makes the whole body of Christ fit together perfectly as eyes, nose, mouth, ears, hands, feet fit the body. Each part does special work to help other parts function better as part of the whole body. The Body of Christ is compared to various physical body parts working in unison to perform assigned roles. This enables the body to be coordinated to support each other. So God created two eyes trained to see twice by faith to see through eyes of faith all God’s plans and desires with two ears to hear twice more to discern than speak. In the same way the delicate body parts are compared to workings of Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians 12 : 1-26. The Bible talks about the gifts of the Holy Spirit so that brothers and sisters will not be uninformed. It is important to know the role each one has to play either as a seer’s eyes see visions, ears hear voice of God, nose smells sweet aroma fragrance of Christ, mouth speaks the true prophetic words of God that does not return void but accomplishes victory, hands that bless or feet that springs into action on behalf of all. Taking time to be aware of one’s strengths, and gifts enables best use of one’s talents and abilities. This makes correct use of talents appropriately ensuring competence and efficiency. And therefore roles are specifically put in place to follow management of God’s Business. five_senses_collageThis allow eyes, nose, mouth correct roles by wisdom, humility and discernment as certain roles at times may seem as better than others from an outward perspective. The person willing to Obey God’s plans recognises that the work is unto the LORD God’s Glory not praise of people. So some roles may seem not quite what a person feels is within their calling. Yet each little helps as little drops of water make mighty ocean. No matter how small the role each is contributing to a bigger picture of God’s Kingdom. To accept an assigned role is to please God to do HIS WILL in Christ. Since the foundation of earth God’s chosen ones yield to God through the Holy Spirit. When eyes insist on doing work of ears, hands or feet do mouth’s work instead this creates chaos and confusion. This is due to the fact that their original intended role is wasted so neglected to take on another role not as supposed to be performed. The new role is not done well because God never intended that work for them in the first place. This is likened to the original plan of God to be devoted to the LORD God Almighty alone but instead eyes stray in other directions by distractions.  You know pagans are influenced and led astray to follow mute idols.3 The result is body part misplaced in the wrong place out of tune with God. So God wants you to know those who speak by the Spirit of God say Jesus is Lord by the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus+christ+how+horrifying+freya+jobbins+portrait+made+out+of_797e82_5021177.jpgThere are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them 5 for different kinds of service function is from the same Lord God. There are different kinds of workings in everyone yet the same God at work. 7 To each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another the distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues and to another the interpretation of tongues.  11 All these are the works of one and the same Spirit, Holy Spirit and He distributes to each one, just as God determines. Any displacement of one part to another function is caused by the spirit of discord, divisions, lack of unity, confusion not Godly understanding.resist-the-devil-he-will-flee-james-4-7.jpg

Unity and Diversity in the Body

12 Just as the body although one has many parts and the many parts form one body so it is with Christ. 13 We are all baptized by one Spirit to form one body whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free are all given one Spirit to drink one communion of the Blood of Yeshua Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God cleans the conscience from dead works to serve the living LORD God in Hebrews 9:14. So Word of God promises those in Messiah are free and therefore no condemnation to those in Yeshua Messiah who do not walk in the flesh according to Romans 8:1. 14 The body is not made up of only the one part but of many. 15 Now if the foot should say, that “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 17 If the whole body were eyes, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear where would sense of smell be? 18 But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as HE wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part where would the other body parts be? 20 Though many parts yet one whole body.1933377-Very-ugly-face-and-comical-create-with-the-hand-with-an-eye-an-ear-the-nose-the-mouth-and-a-foot-Stock-Photo.jpg

21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” 22 On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem weaker are all indispensable 23 and the parts we think less honourable we must treat with a special honour. The parts unpresentable are to be treated modestly. 24 The  presentable parts perhaps need no special treatment. But God has put body together, giving greater honour to various parts so 25 there should be no divisions in the body but the parts should have equal concerns for each other.  26 If one part suffers every part suffers with them if another part is honoured every part rejoices with them. It is important the body of Christ understand various roles assigned by God are all valid so necessary to build the House of God. So each person plays active roles efficiently to ensure others synchronise together as one team on God’s Side always in Christ.  romans-12-4-5.jpgrom-12-4-for-just-as-in-one-body-we-have-many-members-and-all-the-members-of-the-body-do-not-have-the-same-functiondownload (1).jpgc10d4d7da7e40603a2bec2f066aefc43.jpgSpiritually speaking, if the parts see eye to eye there is love and unity, peace and joy. Not chaos and confusion similar to a body dysmorphy and dystrophy, so an outsider sees a well-formed whole person yet inside a person does not think so until corrective surgery solves the problem. In Christianity God tells believers to liken church of God to the individual body parts located in the right places for God’s purpose. Each part is equaly useful and helpful so none cannot take the overall total credit exclusively for their contribution. So the body of Christ is made up various parts that look different but are purposefully designed to suit each role. So therefore, time cannot be wasted in trying to redesign the eyes, ears, nose and mouth, hands and feet to suit fanciful purpose. God in HIS Wisdom created body parts assigned so each can work all things together for the greater good of mankind.BodyofChrist.jpgThis Biblical principles work in any place requiring discipline and productivity and not therefore an exclusive private idea to the church. Any organisation seeking the optimum performance must ensure that the right skills are allocated so eyes sees, ears hear, nose can scent, mouth talks, the hands work and feet to move on behalf of the company. The correct skills use of the talents increase efficiency, productivity or profit margins. Ensuring each part of the corporate body is correctly placed and also envisaged short-term, mid-term, long-term visions for the future well-being of all.   download.jpgb697e9e4b43ba81e1f6c785525021a10.jpg

God Loves to hear from all His Children so the prayer of the upright pleases God says Proverbs 15:8. Know for sure God Loves you as He KNOWS you. God is Close to you not remote, impersonal, and uninvolved in your daily lives. The Bible reveals God created humans for a very personal relationship with HimPrayer is the key way to engage in relationship so talk to God persistently throughout the day by Word of God. In Eden Garden God talked Adam and Eve spending time together sharing thoughts and feelings as a good father makes time for his children in Genesis 3:8. Good times with father God helps to discover the kind of day children have had. If any problem shares wisdom and provides help or offer solutions. So good children are interested in spending time with parents gaining wisdom, so God’s children spend time with the Heavenly Father. God already knows our minds before we say, share, or ask anything. God Knows all things, Jesus Open door to spend time with us, listening to our prayer is born out of His love and desire to have a real and vibrant relationship with us.  He is ready to listen and to guide us, but we must first come to the Source of Life. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to prayer in 1 Peter 3:12.

So body of Christ makes sure continues to meet together with other believers as the Body of Messiah required in Bible in  Hebrews 10:24–25. We walk free of sin by the Grace of God’s forgiveness ourselves so join those who follow Yeshua. And need to continue to stay accountable in the Body to one another and uplift one another to live a life of holiness. Since each of us has been given ministry of reconciliation, we should be agents of healing and restoration. The world mus learn from authentic real Christianity applied living sermons to attract more people added daily by Yahweh God by agape love building Church in Christ. This principles do work in the home as well and in the community. All people need to have consideration for a real assessment of gifts of the Spirit of God in all human beings. By taking time to carefully analyse the best roles each person gets fulfilment of playing their mind. This helps identify the best talent most suitable for each role by members of a community. The church is example of God to all nations so must work with people in unity and love. The Church of God in Christ is God’s Kingdom family.

MOVING IN TOGETHER

10-Signs-Its-a-Good-Idea-to-Move-in-with-Your-PartnerMoving in and living together is seen as most exciting time ever if a relationship is going well. Often many factors include being closer together because deeply in love and economic reasons. After falling in love the next level is planning future together hopefully for life. The focus of excitement to see it happen absolutely is amazing. You just cannot wait to cook dinner together, feel super domestic, and yeah, maybe you want to show off to friends you not only landed an awesome boyfriend but committing to each other even more. You know that you definitely deserve to be happy about this and even sure you are right because you got far to this point. You may think you can still mess things up or make some mistakes but decides to go ahead anyway. This is often the case for some people when one is totally fixated on these things so your relationship does not end. Researchers find 15 useful points couples must note when moving in together.Young Adult Using Laptop

1. Thinks Life Stays Same

Many think life at the beginning of their relationship stays in the same romantic phase permanently in state of euphoria. Hence choices and planning of decisions are based on utopia mindset of perfect happiness. Being in love means to them everything harmonises perfectly in state of synchronicity. The truth is anytime a big step is taken in relationship it means things are going to change. It is not a bad thing at all but means you have to admit that something has shifted and there is a new dynamic you need to deal with it. So a lot of couples make the mistake of not thinking anything changes when they decide to live together. Again, it is not anything negative it is just something to keep an eye on. By bringing two lives together essentially each has a different habit when it comes to how you live. So maybe you are a morning person and you kind of annoy everyone but hey, they are jealous and your partner is a total night owl. That means things can change a little bit. You might have to go to bed at separate times or find other times of day to hang out. You have to just figure this out but it’s definitely possible.15.jpg

2. SuperHigh Expectation

Most relationship definitely face super high expectations of each other some almost humanly impossible. So having super high expectations and partner not meeting them causes anger, frustrations and dissatisfaction. Maybe they do not know what you want them to do so they cannot meet them as they are not mind readers. Maybe they cannot meet them because you want too much and so they cannot give you what you are looking for. Unrealistic expectations can ruin totally or break a relationship. When you move in, you do not want to have crazy high expectations that no sane person could ever meet, let alone the person you love. Many couples make this mistake. They think moving in together totally solves problems in their relationship just for a while but think the negative completely disappears except the very best stuff. It is not real life so not the right way to go. Think of MasterChef with the identical ingredients, scales, cookers, tools, recipe given to a team of professionals. After watching practical demonstration of the exact recipe perfectly made by a gourmet chef their meals never look or taste the same. A certain level of experience and a personal touch always produces better quality. In the same manner, nobody can perfectly replicate exact clone of loved one no matter how deeply in love they may be. Worth noting love alone is not enough to transform anyone overnight into an image of fantasy partner existing inside one’s head. Some people never think anyone is perfect for them so need to create one themselves.   moving-in.jpg
3. Doing It For The Money

Sometimes it seems a good idea to move into a place together because financially it is a good idea. But you have to make sure you think about this. Just because you find a place that you are absolutely in love with does mean that you should make decision that you can both afford so check long-term if good idea to move in together. First of all, before you decide to live together you need to have a talk with written agreement to ensure you keep up with whatever decisions made. This means that both of you are willing and ready. Often times if you fall in love with a place and think that this is a good idea before taking the necessary steps you will realize that it can cause a whole lot of issues for the two of you. Make sure you are not moving at a faster pace than your relationship is ready for.moving-in-together.jpg

4. Respecting Differences

Again, you and your partner might have way more differences than you know and those things only become super- clear after you move in together. You could be a neat freak and they could be furthest thing from that. You must respect fact they thinking you are nagging always on their case to clean up or do dishes, if not you are asking for a major relationship trouble. You have to respect differences and talk about this properly. You can say something like, “Hey, I get it does not bother you if dirty dishes are left in the sink, but I do not love it, so maybe we can take turns.” If they truly love you so hopefully does since you are now living together is a pretty massive step. You, need to understand where both come from to negotiate teamwork and learn to agree to disagree on other differences.article-0-1842F93C00000578-336_634x373.jpg

5. Seeing Each Other 24/7

When couples move in together because they want to spend more time together, after already spending time hanging out and staying over at each other’s places they figure out it is time and they might as well live together. It just makes total and complete sense as a really great next step. But if you think moving in with a partner  means that you should see each other 24/7, you are on the wrong track. Yes, you love one another and yes, you want to see each other as much as you possibly can. But you both still need to live your own lives and see your families and see your friends and keep up your hobbies and interests. Do not just drop everything and everyone in your life now because you live with your partner. That is asking for a total disaster. Be honest about how much space you need and do the same partner and family.55_dating_advice-909388-TwoByOne

6.Nagging & Complaining

Pointing out what is wrong instead of an appreciation of what is right is nagging. Why ignore a 90% strong points to zoom in on 10% weaknesses as long as it is not a risk to life or aggressive behaviour that causes harm or any danger. Be honest are you perfect yourself? Nagging is the projection of self onto others to compel them to behave exactly like you. In other words you want your identical clone to just like you. You already know this is making a total and complete stereotype, so honestly, why would you do this? Do you want your partner to hate you and resent you and eventually leave you? You definitely want to cut this out and soon. A lot of couples make mistake of nagging each other when they move in together, so yes, it definitely goes both ways and guys can do this, too, even if you don’t think so. Your might ask to chill out a little bit about chores and taking care of apartment or might say you are hanging out with your friends too much and nag you about how you need to spend more time at home. Do your best and say you both need to communicate properly and that neither one of you should make the other one feel bad.First-Time-House-Buyers.jpg

7. Both Being Honest

Sometimes couples living together are not totally honest about what they each want. Maybe wants a certain apartment but your partner hates it so did not push for it or vice versa. Is not ideal situation if both move into an apartment and you do not both absolutely adore it, but yeah, it does happen. If you’ve moved in with someone before, you’ve probably made the mistake of not being honest about the kind of living accommodations that you’re looking for, and if you haven’t lived with anyone yet, you definitely will in the future. It is just one of the things that usually happens for good reason to make partner happy so wants the same thing for you, so you tiptoe around this kind of issue and act like everything is totally fine. Until, of course, it all comes crashing down later on always be honest because if not you pay it for it later.first_time_home_buyer_north_carolina_350

8. Treating As Y/our Place

Avoid mistake of acting an apartment is still totally yours if your partner moved in with you, you are not alone there. The same thing applies if you move into their apartment or you got a totally new place altogether. The truth is a place belongs to both of you now and you definitely have to get used to that. You cannot just invite people over without telling your partner and vice versa, and you cannot decorate it however, cannot randomly rearrange furniture without telling other person. You just cannot unless you want to start a huge argument and then, by all means, go ahead. This is part of what makes living together so new and difficult. It is not all fun and games as there are some real decisions to make with your partner. Even if you take initiative or want to surprise it is good to have approval out of respect not belittle partner. Hopefully, you will get used to realizing you share space now and things will be okay.Happy-Homeowners-(Website)-77267-1

9.Being Choosy & Picky

Being choosy, picky and overdemanding in the name of perfection drains partner emotionally. If you refuse to put up any painting your partner’s grandmother had given them or even painted because you claim it is super ugly and does not go with the rest of the apartment decor, you are not only being a jerk but making also a huge mistake. Same goes if actions any favourite pillow means a lot to you, so super attached to it. Many couples make mistake of deciding to live tougher and then getting super picky about furniture and decorations. It is easy to not see the forest from the trees, as they say to care so much about small irrelevant things that you do not realize the big picture of what really matters. The big picture of course, is that you love someone enough to live with them. That is no small thing. Choose safe well-structured wardrobes to use without falling apart easily posing risk especially to small children or infirm in household. Ensure best quality and durable safe bed/rooms, electric, gas pipes checked to ensure safety. Be realistic and do repairs regularly for peace of mind.Rido.jpg

10.Housewarming Parties

You want to have a housewarming party when you move into a new place and so desire goes up about a million points as you are moving in with your partner. You want to housewarming party, asking for tons of trouble and do not realize how much this strain on your relationship. The same thing will definitely happen if your partner wants to throw party earlier than you do or tries to control the whole thing. Talk to each other openly honestly about when you both want to throw this party and definitely think plan together the details and costs or clean up after.man-woman-floor-boxes-lying-down.jpg

11. Being A United Team 

Yeah, you have been living alone for a while now, and even though you’ve been in this happy and serious relationship, you have still had your own space. You could do what you want, when you want, and you made decisions about going to sleep or when to cook or when to clean without having to ask someone else if it  is okay. But now you are part of a team and it is not just your space anymore, so  that is a huge change. A lot of couples make mistake of not acting like they are part of a team now that they moved in together. You cannot just rearrange your entire living room without talking to the partner or decide to retile the bathroom floor without them running it by you first. You have to talk things out and figure them out together. If you do not want to do it this living arrangement might not work neither will relationship.article-2537031-0409F75F00000514-609_634x376.jpg

12.On The Best Behaviour

Yes, of course, you want to be on your best behaviour around other people, but around your romantic partner? Why would not just be yourself to relax a little bit more? A lot of couples think  when they move in together, they should not walk around in ugly sweats anymore or do the things they used to do. But that is a huge mistake and so wrong. You are sharing your life with your partner now, along with your apartment and deserve to be yourself and be real as possible. You can absolutely break out your ugliest sweatpants or slippers and just might become inside joke between two of you, which is totally cool. You should not be afraid to relax and act the way you did before when you just lived alone both do the same thing within reason, of course. You may not want to see the messiest so hopefully can reign it a little bit you two.couple-fighting-on-couch

13. Fighting Too Much

Some couples move in together and then automatically start fighting too much. The thing is this does not have to happen at all so can absolutely work hard to prevent it. It is easier to fight with someone you see all the time every single day. You expect them to figure things out so there is no reason to tell them exactly what is on your mind but you should be honest all the time. And yes, honesty is a good idea yet there is a fine line between honesty and being kind of mean and cruel. Do not be honest you hurt your partner’s feelings. If you both just share intimacy together but cannot seem stop bickering about little stuff, you need to set some ground rules and boundaries. Talk about how you will divide up chores, domestic stuff like cooking and cleaning. Until you figure that out you will keep fighting so not good for anyone.cohabiting_couple_182624410

14. Expecting Romance

This is a huge mistake lots of couples make, and is a pretty obvious one. Of course, you think things are going to be super romantic 24/7 when actually living with one you love the most in the world. But that does not take into account being sick, being exhausted, being stressed out at work and general life stuff. Moving in together is kind of like getting a taste of what is married life so you definitely will deal with a lot of things you never had to deal with before. You must be open and honest with each other about literally all you are dealing with, whether you want to or not. If you do not sleep together  every single night or have the hottest love life ever, that is not a bad thing. That means your relationship matures as love changes and gets back to normal. A point to remember is libido changes with small children so find new hide outs for timing intimacy passion. You need to be creative as not same as just the two of you before raising family.

15. Have Zero Problems

You cannot have children then expect the home to remain as if you live in a show room because the house is an investment to sell on. Some do not let children sit on sofa, play, roll on floor in living room so raised like little soldier’s in ‘the sound of music.’ Perfect children and families only happily ever after relationship happens in TV drama, Mills and Boon’s romantic novels, real life is warts and all. Couples think once they make important decision to move in together are truly committing to each other so will have zero problems. If things get more complicated when you move in with someone it is normal but, that is not a bad thing at all unless you make it one. Both are own whole people and with your own thoughts, feelings, ideas and you have your own schedules and routines. Those are bound to clash so that is okay. That is what is supposed to happen. Do your best to be patient as the two of you get used to your new living situation and work out the issues within a good frame of time. Just because you are having a bit of trouble getting used to living together does not mean things are heading in a negative direction. Some recommend not moving in together before marriage often it does not work out in favour of the majority   who tried due to lack of commitment. At other times couples need support of the family members and friends to survive. So it is wise in both best interest not to exclude isolate or burn love bridges as you are too deeply involved to make room for any other person. That is too close for comfort so can suffocate the relationship. Above all, God said it is not good to be alone so seek God’s Face to guide and help you build up a sound foundation. Do not let your picker or physical looks attraction be the only deciding factor of relationship. A reliable interdependent relationship nurtures love essential to a mature love. Life is dynamic so changes take place daily in both if children are involved. Create play corner, child space include learning and music. Continue to date once a month minimum and get a baby sitter and do not call every second instead of relaxing with your partner. If possible for stability of children choose a location nearby with schools, church and parks locally. Aim for property longterm so children will not miss out on forming durable friendships and family support. Pay closer attention to household chores like removing rubbish. USD multilayered plastic bags if suitable inlaid with paper to soak wet waste that is not made into compost. Separate to recycle useful gabbage because one man’s thrash is another’s treasure. Keep baby waste out doors in safe covered bins do not breath it indoors including removing cat litter from tray daily for good hygiene practice.Small-trash-can-with-our-bag__pp-300x300bin5final1-1024x769.jpg

16. Household Duties

Shopping, cooking, laundry and cleaning duties among others must meticulously planned and not left to chance. Both will do certain tasks better so agree and make a to do list to remind yourself if not able to hire a housekeeper to do it for you. A happy life depends on smooth  running of the home and good time schedules as part of a team working together. Simple tips include advance preparation to be ahead of time. A dustbin layered with many bags with disinfectant in between each saves time to remove rubbish. Also clear water closet with clean tissue on top of unflashed loo, push down brush left in during flashing to cut the cost of calling plumber every five minutes. It prevents ungastly sight of a heavy soiling stubborn stains on brush that refuse to be shifted by flashing alone. Persist and repeat process many times until clean for next use. Never let toilet brush directly touch loo instead use tissues to form a barrier to keep the brush clean from harbouring germs and bacteria. After flashing loo, use fresh clean tissue to pick and wipe handle, disinfect brush after cleaning and wash hands thoroughly. Soak brush in a disinfectant  container holding brush in the toilet to continue daily disinfectation. If at first you do not succeed try again to leave brush inside bowl with tissue covering loo and flash but do not stuff lavatory with tissues out of sheer frustration to cost you plumber fees. If not sure what to do leave it with the experts in case it is a pipe blockage elsewhere. Life can be easily managed if you know how.

EZEKIEL’S VISIONS OF GOD

201419jttbezekiel-141030012513-conversion-gate02-thumbnail-4

God is physically seen on heaven throne by Ezekiel 1-3 in Bible as Omnipresence of God connects to earth directly. God’s Omniscient Eyes, God’s Omnipotent Powerful postion is revealed to Ezekiel in vision. God propels chariot throne movement actions by God’s Divine Nature, Glory, Supreme, Immanent Existence extending into all HIS created universe. Ezekiel sleeping on one side 430 days, accomplished by lunar-solar calendar year in 13th month Ezekiel completes assignment with days to spare. Torah revelation by God in this vision to Ezekiel of cherubim, seraphim, chariot, Spirit and wheels give insight to heaven. This vision vividly displays the Majesty and Glory of God sitting on His Throne, fully in control in 13th year, 4th month, on 5th day of month. Ezekiel was among captives by river Chebar in Babylon in Iraq when heavens opened and saw visions of God Almighty. In 5th year of king Jehoiachin’s captivity into Babylon the word of the LORD God to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by river Chebar the hand of the LORD was upon him. As he looked and saw a whirlwind out of the north, a great cloud and fire unfolding brightly as colour of amber out of midst of fire. In vision 4 living creatures with appearance of men had 4 faces of a man, face of lion, on right side, face of ox on left side and face of eagle. God’s consuming fire surrounds HIS Glory. Ezekiel’s visions have symbolic meanings for Christian believers, Israel and the whole world. So each face represents the chief creatures of their domains man over all creatures, lion over all wild creatures, ox over all domesticated creatures, and the eagle over the birds of the air. All the 4 living creatures with 4 faces stand before the throne of the Sovereign God.Four_Living_Creatures.jpgThose searching God’s Perfection see in Christ HIS Son the Firstborn of creation Jesus Christ HIS brightness round about HIM. Jesus possesses all these qualities of each face of the angels. The likeness of living creatures comes in the midst of God’s fire as these angels derive their being and power from God and Christ. So they have an understanding of a man far more than a mere mortal. The Lion of Judah Jesus Excels in great strength and boldness to rule as the KING of Kings. An ox excels in diligent patience, unwearied work plowing rich fields for abundant harvest providing providence and also sustenance. An eagle soars so excels in quickness as believers mount up with wings like eagles soaring high. Angels, excel in many ways with 4 wings and so the business God is quickly done. They stand straight, firm, steady, tall used the wings for motion, hands or feet straight and sole of their feet like sole of a calf foot, sparkled like colour of burnished brass. They had the hands of a man under their wings on 4 sides and 4 faces.   bc7a122b8b6923c1d3bd92b07fc3fb89.jpgTheir 4 wings joined one to another so they did not turn when they went about straight forward. Their 4 faces were the face of a man, face of a lion, on the right side, the face of an ox on left side and the face of eagle and each had 4 wings.  Their wings stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies. They went everyone straight forward where spirit was to go they went and they turned not around as they went about. Likeness of living creatures appear as burning coals of fire in the appearance of lamps up and down among the living creatures. The fire was bright and out of the fire went forth lightning. Isaiah 6:1, and Ezekiel’s 10:1, Daniel 7:9 in Isaiah’s Vision all see and describe God on the throne. Isaiah’s Vision in the year of King Uzziah’s death of the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted with the train of His Robe filling the room. The living creatures ran and return quickly as flash lightning. The living creatures have a wheel next to them. They have 4 human arms and hands like those of a man. The hand is the symbol of active power and skilfulness in Ps 78.72 seen by Ezekiel imply actions activating commands of God by wisdom, dexterity and vigilance to obey God. And under their wings power emanates from the Visible God moving their 4 hands. Four Headed Cherub.jpgThe 4 faced creatures had feet of a calf. The standard of Judah features as a Lion, Reuben the first-born a man, Ephraim an ox and the tribe of Dan is eagle. The sin of golden calf depicted in Ezekiel vision shows consequences as idolatrous exile, signified in the feet resembling a calf’s hoof. The same depiction in Isaiah 6:2 is covered by wings to shield their sin from the Holy God. Israel followed the spirit of God out of Babylon, out of exile back to the promised land just as out of Egypt. Despite previous sins their feet like calf hooves and legs remain strong following the spirit of God leading them back later into the promised land. Next in vision is heavenly technology of 4 wheels within a wheel. Their appearance and work was like colour of a beryl with the same one likeness. Their appearance and work was a wheel in the middle of a wheel. So when they went on their four sides they turned not when they went about. As for their rings, they were so high that they were awesome and their rings were full of eyes round about them for seeing. When living creatures moved about their wheels went by them and when living creatures were lifted up from the earth the wheels were lifted up. Wherever the spirit went wheels lifted nearby for spirit of living creatures was in wheels. Wherever they went these went and so when they stood these stood; when they were lifted up from the earth wheels lifted up next to them so spirit of living creatures in wheels. The principle of motion in the living beings empowered and propelled by God and wheels. The vision of heaven is connected directly to earth from God’s throne room touching earth on ground.  e6de91dc880c55b3e21d50f99b264259The wheel rings, full of eyes all-seeing like man’s eyes are made in likeness of God in Genesis 1:26. The great number of eyes on the rings symbolize how great is God’s awareness and direction of events. The Bible Scriptures give interpretation according to 1 Peter 1:20 know what God allows us to understand the wheel vision carrying God on throne given to Ezekiel. The likeness of the firmaments on heads of living creatures is colour of  crystal  stretched over their heads above. And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered one side, and every one had two, which covered other side of their bodies. And when they went is heard noise of their wings like the noise of great waters, as the voice of Almighty God, the Voice of God’s speech, as the noise of host when they stood they let down their wings. So the Voice from the firmament was over their heads when they stood and had let down their wings. Above the firmament over their heads was likeness of a throne the appearance of a sapphire stone and upon the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon throne. And the colour of amber appearance of fire round about from within, from the appearance of HIS LOINS upward and downward appearance of fire and it had brightness round about. The appearance of rainbow in the cloud like in the day of rain was appearance of the brightness. God’s Presence surrounded by Rainbow  adds to brilliance of colour covenant of peace between God and man through HIS Grace and Mercy. Appearance of the Glory of LORD God Almighty Ezekiel saw and fell on his face and heard the Voice of God Speak. Although the Jews were in captivity God’s Love for them continued to reassure them of His remembrance. Today no matter the state of any person or the situation, God still shows up to those who call upon God in Christ Jesus to save them everyday. In Daniel 7:7-13 living creatures surround white throne on which the Ancient of Days God Sits. This white throne is in final judgement in Revelations 20:22-15. The 4 beasts differ from the 4 beasts Ezekiel 1 and Revelations 4:6-8 so the lion, calf, eagle and man face creature has 4 wings but in contrast beasts in Revelation Seraphim have six wings. The Book of Isaiah 6:1-8 describes six-wing beings flying around the Throne of God singing “Holy, Holy, Holy.” God creates an amazing variety of no-wing angels, 2 wing angels, 4 wing angels and 6 winged angels as featured.0da6e43818c5f6633353de1b318ba898However, the first beast has the wings removed so stands upright and given mind of man. The 2nd beast resembles a bear with 3 ribs in mouth, told to ‘get up and eat your fill of flesh.’ The third beast resembles leopard with 4 heads as beasts in Ezekiel and Revelations. And beast given authority to rule like dragon beast from sea in Revelations 13. The final beast has large iron teeth used to crush and devour victims trampled underfoot as winepress beast, Revelation 14:18-20 until Jesus Christ Crushes the beast. In Revelations 4:6-8 the 4 living beings in Greek: τέσσαρα ζῷα, tessera zō[i]a are seen in John’s vision. These appear as a lion, ox, man, and eagle in Ezekiel but in a different order. They have six wings, but Ezekiel’s 4 living creatures have 4. In verse 6, they have “eyes all over, front and back so they alert, knowledgeable so nothing escapes notice. The wheels are beside living creatures in Ezekiel 1.18; 10.12, are “full of eyes all around.” The Hebrew word for “wheel” ôpannîm in Jewish literature indicates angelic orders in 1 Enoch 71.7; 3 Enoch 1.8; 7.1; 25.5-6, etc. In Revelation, 4 beasts surround God on red throne of ruby sardius contrasts white throne in Daniel 7:9, Revelations 20:11-15. So these 4 living creatures in prophetic apocalyptic interpretations by Christians vary. 4 living creatures, John of Patmos sees in Revelations and living creatures in visions of Ezekiel 1:5-28 and Isaiah 6:2 are similar but different. Ezekiel_10.22510831_std.jpgIn church history Victorinus, not original or only one said, lion represents Mark, the calf Luke, the man Matthew, and eagles John. Ireneaus was the first to make this association with evangelists. In living history the nations represented as eagle is America, lion is Britain, ox is Germany and bear Russia. Others think these represents intelligence of man, power, courage in lion, strength of ox and speed of eagle. In a hierarchy of life forms man is king of all, lion is king of animals, ox king of work, eagle king of birds. Some say China is lion, ox Russia so global news directly leads to endtime Armageddon significant roles. So think antiChrist leads supported by 2 states against Israel before final ultimate rule by Christ. Prophet Ezekiel  prophesied the whole world shall come to know God as everything leads to God’s Kingdom establishment of New Jerusalem on the earth. This whole world is about to know God for the first time ever as the verses in Ezekiel 6:7, 10; 12:15, 20; 16:62; 34:27; 37:13-14 shows. Before that happens to the world, God says His end-time elect will send HIS warning messages. Book of Ezekiel in its entirety helps lead the world to get to know the True, Living God Yahweh in Christ Jesus His Son. Although things get worse before life gets better the most important decision to make is belong to the Living God Almighty in Jesus Name. Jesus weeps and intercedes on behalf of people to be saved before it is too late. God is sad and crying in Jeremiah 14:17 for you like HE did for God’s people Judah. God cries in Romans 8:26, as it says when we do not know what to pray for in face of calamity God’s Spirit, the Holy Spirit intercedes for us through groanings. God groans and sighs beyond what words express and God cries beyond human tears. God is Crying over plight of the world and its destructions by God’s wrath to come. Receive God’s Grace and Mercy freely to you bought and paid for by Christ Jesus for eternal life. In the Bible in the village of Bethany Jesus wept at the grave of Lazarus in John 11:35 and so continues to weep for all humanity. Jesus is weeping today to save you so accept His Love.

TITHES & OFFERING IN BIBLE

tithes-and-offering-scriptures

The LORD spoke to Moses saying,  Speak to the children of Israel, that they bring Me an offering or terumah in Hebrew. So everyone who gives willingly with his heart you shall take My offering says Exodus 25:1–2. God gave Israelites 53 mitzvot laws out of 613 commandments. These laws included the treatment of parents, slaves and foreigners, tithing, offerings, other people’s property. Gifts or Terumah תְּרוּמָה in Hebrew means an offering or contribution. The LORD God commanded Moses to take up a free will offering from people of Israel to build sanctuary in wilderness. In order to fund the building of the Sanctuary, God commands Moses to take a census of the people of Israel and to instruct them to give a half shekel of silver. “This is what everyone who is numbered shall give, half a shekel as a contribution to the LORD in Exodus 30:13.

A half-shekel coin from the First Jewish War (AD 66–70).  Around the chalice it says, “Half Shekel,” and above it “Year 2.”  The sprig of pomegranate side states “Jerusalem is holy.” In Exodus 35:35  and  36:5 says skilled women spun with their hands and brought what they spun in blue, purple, scarlet materials in fine linen. All  women   whose heart stirred with skill spun  goats’ hair.  The rulers brought onyx stones and stones for setting for ephod and breastplate. Moses asked all those skilled to work as engravers, designers and embroiderers in blue, purple, scarlet yarn, fine linen weavers skilled workers and designers. Embroiderers threaded fine linen cloth so weavers were excelled craftsmen and designers. The people responded well by giving like crowd funding today so much more than asked for. They brought too much more than needed everyday to Moses for the temple work. Moses told people to stop giving because they received more than required to complete temple tabernacle sanctuary for LORD God. 
The Mishkan Shilo Synagogue in the community of Shilo is a replica of the Biblical Tabernacle. This sanctuary, called the Mishkan, was meant to be a visible reminder for the people of God’s Holy Presence that dwelt among them. The offerings people bring include precious metals and stones, fine linens, animal skins, wood, oil for lamps, fragrant spices for the incense for God’s House. God instructed Moses to take offering only from those who give willingly from their heart. Again in 1 Chronicles 29 Gifts for Building the Temple from King David told the whole assembly: “My son Solomon God chose is young and inexperienced and the task is great, because palatial structure is not for man but for the Lord God. All my resources provided for the temple of my God gold for gold work, silver for silver, bronze for bronze, iron for iron, wood for wood, onyx for settings, turquoise, stone of various colours, all kinds of fine stone and marble all in large quantities. In my devotion to the temple of my God I give my personal treasures of gold and silver for the temple of my God over and above everything I have provided for this holy temple: three thousand talents of gold of Ophir and seven thousand talents of refined silver for overlaying of walls of the buildings, for the gold work and the silver work, and all work to be done by the craftsmen. All willing to consecrate themselves to the Lord today join in and  leaders of families, officers of the tribes of Israel, commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds and officials in charge of the king’s work gave willingly.  They gave toward the work on temple of God five thousand talents, ten thousand darics of gold, ten thousand talents of silver, eighteen thousand talents bronze, a hundred thousand talents iron. All who had precious stones gave to treasury of the temple of the Lord in the custody of Jehiel the Gershonite. The people rejoiced at the willing response of their leaders giving freely wholeheartedly to the Lord so David rejoiced greatly.

Give 10% Tithe first plus offering of what you decide in your own heart to God not reluctantly or under compulsion for God loves a cheerful giver says 2 Corinthians 9:7 in the Bible. Due to a sinful nature some tend to be selfish not to give and complain about leaders lifestyle or seek what they receive only. Bible tells us it is more blessed to give than to receive in Acts 20:35. We give to God toward the work of the Lord, so we receive back so much more than just what we have given. “Give, and it will be given to you,   good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. With the measure you use, it will be measured to you says Luke 6:38. And Malachi 3:10 emphasizes the principle of giving to the Lord God that HE will pour out blessings when you give to HIM.The LORD God says ‘When you each pay the Lord a ransom for his life at the time he is counted, no plague will come on them when Moses numbers them in  Exodus 30:11–12. In Deuteronomy 28 and Malach 3:10, those who sponsor the Kingdom of God are delivered from Gods curses in Haggai falling on those who chose to neglect the House of God but lavish grand mansions shown off proudly to others. There is God’s protective providence in giving.tithes

Exodus 25:1–27:19; 1 Kings 5:26–6:13; Hebrews 9:128
TITHING TIME TO GOD
Tithe includes personal time devoted to Thank, Praise, Glorify, Honour God. For six days work is to be done but seventh day shall be your Holy Day Sabbath rest to the Lord.  Whoever does any work on it is to be put to death.  Do not light a fire in any of your dwellings on the Sabbath day in Exodus 35:2–3. Jesus said if there is any emergency to save lives Sabbath is to an occassion to help as Jesus asked who will not save their sheep fallen into a well. Jesus healed the disabled man on the Sabbath. Sabbath health contributes to good health and rest too fir wellbeing. told to
The people stood prepared to begin the construction of the Tabernacle. Moses told people not to work on Sabbath so the holiness of Sabbath is not violated for sacred purpose of building God’s Tabernacle. In addition, the size of the offering depends on the proportion of income and wealth. The widow’s mite   amount offering sacrificial love counts to the Lord Jesus. In Luke 21, Yeshua (Jesus) observed the rich giving gifts into the Temple treasury.  He witnessed a poor widow put in two leptons called mites in the King James translation of the Bible. In Yeshua’s day a lepton Greek for small orthin was the smallest denomination of coins.  Like pennies today, they would hardly be considered worth the effort of stooping to pick one up off the street.
A bronze lepton is estimated to have been worth about six minutes of a day’s wage.  The term lepton has survived in Greece so is 1/100 denomination of the official currency. Her two mites was all she had so appreciated by Yeshua who noticed tiny offering widow gave as great honour. Considered significant offering recorded two thousand years ago. And  Yeshua actually valued widow’s offering more generous than offerings of the rich. “I tell you the truth,” Jesus said, “this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them.  For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has. So most important point to note is build God’s House to please God in Christ and feed his sheep, help least in society too.

Is Christianity White Religion?

is-christianity-the-white-mans-religionChristianity is not a white man’s religion or slave master’s religion as make belief fallacy assumes. The white people in the West did not introduce Christianity to Africans through slavery. The Africans introduced Christianity 2,000 years ago when African Christian history began in Bible in Genesis with Mitochondrial Eve and Adam before Bible was completed. The Garden of Eden had 4 rivers flowing through Africa Cush, Ethiopia Abyssinia, Egypt, Sudan, Kenya, Uganda and east Africa. People of Africa know the God of the Bible as shown in time of Abraham who lived in Canaan with converts to Judaism and moved once to Egypt during famine. Hagar the mother of Ishmaelites was from Egypt and Jacob lived in Egypt during famine with Joseph. Moses’ wife Zipporah was an Egyptian and Joseph lived in Egypt as the Pentateuch points out. God delivered the people of Israel through Moses in oral history of God’s nature and God’s dealings with HIS people. Generations later God led Israel out of the Egyptian slavery and many Egyptians recognized the God of the Bible as God Almighty. Queen of Sheba was first mentioned in the Bible as this word queen referred to Black woman in 1 Kings 10:1. The queen of Sheba heard of fame of Solomon and his relationship to the Lord so she came to test Solomon with hard questions. And brought many spices as never brought in ever again as queen Sheba gave to Solomon.new2.png

Scholars say Moses’ wife, Zipporah was black as she was a Cushite in Numbers 12:1. Cush is the ancient name of areas of Africa. The Shulamite woman is black in Song of Solomon 1:5 in Bible. Some say Bathsheba in 2 Samuel 11:3 was black so was Simeon the Niger in Acts 13:1. The Ethiopian eunuch in Acts &:37 was black. Ethiopians are mentioned 40 times in Bible references to black people. Since Ethiopians are black, prophet Jeremiah asked, can Ethiopian change his skin in Jeremiah 13:23 referring to a black skin.  Most Bible teachers believe black people are descendants of Noah’s son Ham in Genesis 10:6-20 in Bible. When it comes to active roles blacks play in Bible often white writers consistently are silent. So instead of giving due credit to blacks in living history, tone down the colour of the skin as not important to God as the condition of the heart. The gospel is a universal good news to black people, white people and every shade in between invited to come to Christ for salvation. By the grace of God black are included in the covenant of God with all the nations on earth. So black skin created by God is highly valued, precious, priceless focus on black soul matters to God in Christ.

quote-jesus-was-not-a-white-man-he-was-not-a-black-man-he-came-from-that-part-of-the-world-billy-graham-82-41-55 After Jeremiah 1,500 years later, people of Africa were exposed to the God of the Bible as Jesus dwelt with them in Egypt. The Coptic church has memorialized the person of Jesus Christ who was taken by Mary and Joseph into Egypt to protect Him from the wrath of Herod. 30 years later Jesus faced crucifixion in Jerusalem weak, tortured, towards execution, it was black African man Simon of Cyrene who helped Him carry His Cross in Matthew 27:32. The Apostle Mark names Simon of Cyrene as the father of Alexander and Rufus. After Jesus died and rose again He ascended and His apostles filled with the Holy Spirit, empowered proclaims gospel message during Pentecost. For festivals in Jerusalem, proselytes travelled from African Churches among many people from many places. Africans from places such as Egypt and Libya and all people under the heavens gathered in Jerusalem for Pentecost. Included Jewish converts  who came from every nation under the heavens to Jerusalem at Pentecost as 33 C.E. account describes the Pentecost crowd of people. 3,000 people converted that day in Acts 2:38 when Peter said to them, Repent be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of all sins and you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.TARDIS-Pentecost.jpgThe African converts took gospel to their homelands after these celebration. Acts 2:9 states this following list of all people from places in Jerusalem 3 times a year. As “Parthians, Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia. Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia Pamphylia, Egypt, parts of Libya of Cyrene, visitors from Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians.”All people in Jerusalem included Jews as the text says There, dwelling in Jerusalem were Jews devout men from every nation under heaven.” Most were Jews by birth but in the crowd were Gentiles converted to Jewish faith. Devout Jews together with proselyte  Gentiles were present each year in the crowd from every nation under heaven for 33 years in Jerusalem in Jesus’ lifetime and after. About 3 million Jews and converts in Jerusalem go in the temple on appointed days during 3 major festivals in Hebrew calendar which calls for people in Israel to be in the temple. These pilgrimage festivals of Feast of Passover are Pesach, in the Hebrew language in early spring; the Feast of Weeks, “Shavuoth,” which occurred fifty days later in later spring or “Pentecost,” means 50 days after Jesus Resurrection.” A third major pilgrimage festival is Feast of Booths or Tabernacles, “Sukkoth,” in the fall. So the Christian gospel made its way into Africa not in the 17th century through colonization but in first century within months of Jesus’ life and after His death by blacks to black people. 

89bb59177e56c0912f307d68dd09b733.jpgSeveral Africans play key roles in book of Acts where gospel continues to spread beyond Jerusalem. Apollos, an African of Alexandria became influential teacher and co-labourer of the Apostle Paul. The church at Antioch sent Paul and Silas as missionaries working with 2 key leaders of African descent, Simon called Niger and Lucius of Cyrene. The most famous African in New Testament is Ethiopian eunuch’s conversion recounted in Acts 8. Ethiopian eunuch was a high-ranking member of Queen Candace of Ethiopia’s court. While traveling back to Ethiopia from Jerusalem was reading the words of the prophet Isaiah from the Septuagint Old Testament translated from Hebrew into Greek in Africa. While reading he encountered Philip an evangelist who explained gospel to him, assured him of his salvation and baptized him. The Ethiopian already made yearly trips to Jerusalem previously as a Jewish convert. Now returned home rejoicing, bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ with him into Ethiopia where Jesus’ Church maintains consistent witness for two millennia. As gospel moved to Africa from Jerusalem it grew spreading to Europe and elsewhere. The book of Acts 11:20 reveals Africans were evangelizing with non-Africans so over the next several hundred years the African Christians had a tremendous impact on Western Christianity. And so the Western missionaries who came to Africa nearly 2,000 years later brought with them understanding of Christianity influenced by Africans.

acr-wrapp1

 The core Christian doctrines that says American slave masters passed on to black slaves in the 17th through 19th centuries were shaped in large part by whites. African Christians nearly 2,000 years before know God before doctrines of the colour, race, nature of Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the nature of the Trinity were formally codified at Church Council of Nicaea. Nicaea and other Christian councils included bishops from all over the Christianized world. And Nicaea had members from East including Africa and the West. It was culturally and ethnically diverse group of bishops not whites who translated teachings of Scripture to the creedal statements that these councils produced and all orthodox Christians follow. So the creedal statement was influenced by writings and the teachings of African theologians like Augustine, Alexander, Athanasius, Cyril and others.

History of Christianity.jpg

David Livingston in 1813-1873 succeeded in his desire to expose the slave trade as his dominant motive. Proving the source of the Nile as geographical part of Africa was important to Livingstone. He proved the Bible was true by tracing the African roots of Judaism and Christianity. And he met generations later Africans who continued keeping black Jewish belief and Torah practices. Livingstone also on Africa in 1841 wrote, it was as exotic as outer space called the “Dark Continent” and “White Man’s Graveyard.” although the Portuguese, Dutch, and English were pushing into the interior, African maps had blank unexplored areas no roads, no countries, no landmarks. So Livingstone helped to redraw maps exploring a dozen countries including the hinterland South Africa, Rwanda, Angola, and Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire). And he made the West aware of the continuing evil of African slavery which led to it being later outlawed. He was awed by the beauty of Zambezi river used for human misery. It linked the Portuguese colonies of Angola and Mozambique, the main suppliers of slaves for Brazil who in turn sold to Cuba and United States. Though Livingstone was partially driven by a desire to create a British Christian colony, his primary ambition was to expose the slave trade and cut it off at the source. The strongest weapon in his task as he believed was for the Christian commercial civilization. He wanted to help replace the “inefficient” slave economy with a proper respect of black economy to buy and sell goods not fellow human beings and God’s people.maxresdefault (1).jpg

Hence whoever identifies misconstrues Christianity as ‘a white man’s religion’ must understand it is not true. Faith in God belongs to all nations under heaven not exclusively as a white religion but is a universal belief. So cannot be made white as Jesus’ bleached image makes Him whiter by overlooking exceedingly important role of blacks, Africans in the Bible in living church history. Original true Christianity comes from finished work of Jesus CHRIST not whites. Jesus “gave himself for all to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify His people as His own Titus 2:14. So all individuals of every tribe, language and people and nation belong to God says Revelation 5:9 as citizens of heavens. As James 1:13-14 says, let no one say when tempted to be evil say “I am tempted by God for God cannot be tempted with evil and so God tempts no one. Each person tempted to do evil is lured and enticed by his own evil desires. People cannot reject God then blame and accuse God for being a white racist by their wicked actions. And salvation is a personal decision required into the kingdom of God through Christ alone so whites are not the gatekeepers of heaven. Bitterness and anger against those who do evil in the name of God is fully recorded in Book of Life by God who takes full notice. During Judgement Day God will throw them in hell if they do not repent. You do not want to be their neighbours in hell so it is important not blame others especially God if not living right within the will of God. And humble yourself, repent to be saved in Christ not to miss heaven because of being misled to think Christianity belongs to whites. All have sinned and fallen short of the grace of God as sinners whether black, white, yellow or red. God loves all people so does not want anyone to reject Christ perish. Accept the key to entering God Almighty’s Kingdom through Christ for Christians as the only way of salvation in Christ alone not whites. Above all, God is not a white racist supremacist so LOVES all people who love and honour HIM in Christ. God created all people, provides life, food, sunshine, rain, shelter for all including HIS enemies. God wants all saved in Christ so stop divisive use of the Christian Gospel to preach hatred and divisions in the name of Father God in Christ Jesus Name.
