God hates sin not men

The Lord has been showing me that he is not mad at me. He is not angry. The only thing God is angry at is SIN not men. Why? Because sin gives men the illusion of not being accepted of God. It is wrong thinking. It tells us that we need to hide, and separate ourselves from Him.

God hates SIN not men! Sin is missing the mark by not seeing your self the way God see’s you. Forgiven, and NOT separated from him. He redeemed us while we were yet sinners. Now we need to judge ourselves so that we continue growing in HIS grace and knowledge to live abundant life now.

Most people know that Sin brings forth death. When we repent (change our thinking) to agree with God, we judge ourselves. 1 Cor 11:13 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. I am judging myself as much as I can,  the LORD is shows me where the beast is ruling so I can change my thinking ( repent/metanoia). And if I do not listen his FIRE will sure be poured out upon me. Keep reading.

Now this is very interesting. Sin carries its own consequences in that we are condemned until we repent and change our thinking. The definition for the word judge is Transliteration: krinó

Phonetic Spelling: (kree’-no)
Short Definition: I judge, decide, think good
Definition: (a) I judge, whether in a law-court or privately: sometimes with cognate nouns emphasizing the notion of the verb, (b) I decide, I think (it) good.

How do we judge ourself? By living on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Matt 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'”

1 Corinthians 11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread.

Learning to examine self keeps us in communion with our Father. It is making sure our faith lines up with the Holy Spirit within, what is He saying. That is to judge,  think it good, as in the definition. That is the bread we are to eat. What he says, not what we say. He says Jesus paid the full price to redeem all of mankind.

So many times I use to see these judgement verses and use them to judge with anger the world and or other people. Wanting God to give them what they deserve. And evening going so far as to let them know God is going to judge them and take care of them and set them right in a bad way. That is wrong and I had to repent of that. God means good for us not evil.

Every word of inspired scripture and the word of the Holy Spirit is to us and about us. I am to eat in judging myself  so that I will be conform into his image and likeness NOW in this world. This is the manifestation of the son’s of God that the whole earth is waiting to be revealed.  If we do not judge ourself his FIRE (Word) will judge us.

Jeremiah 23:29 “Is not my word like fire,” declares the LORD, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?

God’s judgement is not bad thing. It is not. Judgement is always for GOOD. He is for us not against us.  In our wrong thinking we believed a lie.  The lies is God’s waiting to take serious retribution out on us and punish us if we mess up and sin. No, that is carnal thinking.

Ps 19:9,10 9  The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

In all this we learn to let God have his perfect work. It is really all about rediscovering our true identity in Jesus. The overcomers are coming forth and they will walk in his fullness. When we judge ourself,  we will be able to say as David said in Ps26:1 “Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in my integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.”

The dance with the LORD

A while back in my life I was going through a very hard time. Alone and my family falling apart. Kids going astray, husband totally disconnected and Me seeing things in a heap of mess. My family did not know the LORD and I was totally oblivious to the fact that he reconciled the world to himself while we were yet sinners. Any how I was going through a very difficult time.

One night in prayer, in my complete brokenness I had a vision I want to share with you. Maybe it will bring you comfort in any tribulations you may be going through.

Kneeling on the floor  in a church. I found myself in a garden. Sobbing over the condition I was in and my family, I had no one to turn to. Feeling completely alone all I could do was cry in agony, travailing in my spirit. I looked up to see green (life) all around. Flowers and a beautiful trellis of vines. A garden. It was a peaceful place but I had no peace within.

Looking down at the ground still sobbing in my brokenness,  I seen a hand come in front of my face. To reach for me. I knew it was the hand of our LORD. I took his hand without looking up and without hesitation I raised to my feet and I gazed into his eyes.

The brilliance of the light and life I experienced as I took his hand rising to my feet enveloped me and is hard to explain. Utter peace filled me from my head to my feet and I knew when I looked into his eyes nothing else mattered. Everything that I was feeling, all the sorrow and pain was being overcome by his light and life and LOVE.

In the most respectful, polite way, we danced in the garden. Gently he led with one hand on my waist and clasping my other hand gazing into my eyes. I knew I could and was to trust him with my very being. I was being intertwined with him as one.  I did not hear any music as he led me in this dance. Just complete LOVE and trust as I was being knit to his side, seeing that we were one.

He did not need to say anything. His LOVE resonated from his very being and I knew I was in his hands. He was leading and I was to follow as he took me by the hand and led me in a dance. It was a long, slow dance. I felt every step vibrate through my being. Jesus the last Adam reuniting me in his garden bring healing to my life beyond words.

I looked up this definition of dance,  there is so much being revealed to me even how that I can not explain it. The movement of the body (of Christ) coming into full agreement as he leads is utterly beautiful. Trusting in him and being one with him, intertwined in a movement in a form of non verbal communications reminds me of the verse Acts 14:28 that IN HIM we live, move and have our being.

The word Dance is the art of movement of the body, usually rhythmically and to music, using prescribed or improvised steps and gestures. “A dance” is any one prescribed sequence of such movements, or the music to which it is performed, or an event at which it takes place.[1] Dance may also be regarded as a form of nonverbal communication recognizable in other animals; in bee dances and behaviour patterns such as mating dance.

Dance with Jesus and let him lead. It may be a long and slow dance but he will fill you with trust and love to hold onto him and finish the dance. Ponder the dance you find yourself in with him. You are entangled in his love dance.  He will give more meaning that I could ever share.

Things not as they seem pt 2 Caught in Adultery

John 8:1-11Amplified Bible (AMP)

But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

Early in the morning (at dawn), He came back into the temple [[a]court], and the people came to Him in crowds. He sat down and was teaching them,

When the scribes and Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery. They made her stand in the middle of the court and put the case before Him.

Teacher, they said, This woman has been caught in the very act of adultery.

Now Moses in the Law commanded us that such [women—offenders] shall be stoned to death. But what do You say [to do with her—what is Your sentence]?

This they said to try (test) Him, hoping they might find a charge on which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger.

However, when they persisted with their question, He raised Himself up and said, Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.

Then He bent down and went on writing on the ground with His finger.

They listened to Him, and then they began going out, conscience-stricken, one by one, from the oldest down to the last one of them, till Jesus was left alone, with the woman standing there before Him in the center of the court.

10 When Jesus raised Himself up, He said to her, Woman, where are your accusers? Has no man condemned you?

11 She answered, No one, Lord! And Jesus said, I do not condemn you either. Go on your way and from now on go sin no more.

Caught in adultery was revealed to me that I had been caught having intercourse with others. Believing lies and doing works outside of my relationship with Jesus. Trying to earn and appease him. Not able to see for the logs in my own eyes how could I see, help and love others?

Religious people brought accusations against me trying to prevent my uncovering of the truth. Jesus drew me out. Brought me to repentance. Metanoia- to see as he see’s. He is continuing to reveal lies to me that I believed.

Ready to stone me for my sins Jesus spoke his judgement. All judgment has been give to him (John 5:22) with the verdict of I do NOT Condemn you go and sin no more.

This is what he showed me. Sin is always an error of understanding. That is what missing the mark is. We are to have no part in that. We are to see as he see’s with a renewed mind. Sin is anything that originate in the old man, self empowered nature, not of faith. Something that has not originated out of God the father from an in working persuasion of the Holy Spirit abiding within.

The same man Jesus that wrote the law of MOSE, HE was writing in the dirt. As he stood and spoke to the Pharisee telling them he who is without sin cast the first stone. He render is judgement of compassion vs the law of death. Maybe he seen a lost coin. A lost sheep. A diamond. Whatever he seen was equivalent to something that had much value to him. Something worth saving. She did not beg for forgiveness or mercy or repent. She did not utter screams of confession trying to save her life. She knew there was nothing she could do but surrender. Lost in her guilt and shame knowing she was guilty and deserved death she spoke not one word but lay at the feet of mercy. He told her that she was FREE. He would not condemn her but to go change her thinking about who she is and see things in the light of his love. She accepted his gift of grace and mercy.

And now the new life begins.

Starting all over things are not as they seem

Not long ago I was being consumed with seeing all the demonic stuff and studying eschatology. For years I was a deliverance minister helping to set people free. For 20+ years of serving the LORD. I had to take a break and seek him.

I had become bitter and very frustrated with people. Call it burn out or whatever you like but I had to seek his glory so that I could be healed of hurts and rid myself of this bad attitude I had towards other people. At least that is what I thought I was doing by withdrawing from people and ministry for the last few years. I needed a fresh touch.

It all started on the lawn mower one day about 4 years ago when I heard the LORD say to me “things are not as they seem”. I started to let God out of the small box I had put him in by asking questions about everything I had been taught. Heaven, Hell, Salvation, End times ect..and I started looking into other doctrines.

Doctrines that main stream Christianity considers false.  What if they where right and all I knew was not as it seemed? The draw was strong and I know now the LORD sure was and is leading me. Oh, I seeked advise from people I thought were wise. Some said I was under attack and to not go there. Very few encouraged me to keep moving forward. But I knew deep within my heart the LORD was drawing me to a place I had never been.

Every time I would start to open the box, looking at the questions I would freeze and run back to my safety net of teachings I had acquired over the years. NO. that can’t be right, I’d say. Close the box and walk away.

So for the last few years it was open and close the box so to speak. All the while I kept praying every day, LORD please show me your truth, don’t let me be deceived, I want you and your truth at all cost. I hear your voice and you promised you would keep me, you promised I would not follow a stranger. I will trust you.

He was slowing pealing back more layers showing me in my time, based on what I could handle the false teachings, the pain and anger I had, the salvation he died to give me and how wrong I was about so many things.

You see, we  can’t love people, life or Jesus if we don’t believe we are valued and love by HIM. That meant I had to get to the root of some issues. In order to see his LOVE and Mercy in others and in the world that I so wanted to see,  I was going to have to look inside myself and see that love and mercy he had for me.

I was tired of the darkness. Instead of the darkness and demons in things and people I wanted to see the light that lights all men.

It is one thing to read about his love and say okay Jesus says he loves me, it is another to experience it and know it is real.  I wanted his love flowing through me.

One morning in prayer not long ago I again was crying out for Jesus to please let me see through his eyes. Let me see his glory. Let me see the world and people the way he sees them. I knew how I seen them and it was not good.

In response, he spoke to my heart and told me that if I wanted to see what he see’s, which would include his love and glory I was going to have to stop calling everything and everyone unclean. He told me that ALL men are created in his image and likeness no matter what I thought and if  whether they knew it or not. The earth is HIS and the fullness thereof (Ps 24:1).

That was the beginning of a change in me. A metanoia  (greek word we call repentance that it is a topic to come). I will end with this and continue with a part 2. The Lord took me to the woman caught in adultery. (John 8:1-11)

What say you?

Amazed at what the Lord has been showing me and how I have been hearing his voice. He said he would show us things we know not, and WOW is he ever shattering the religious walls that have been built in my thinking through the traditions of men that make his word of no effect. Things, even little things are now being revealed to those seeking HIS mind. Many people read the scriptures just trying to validate and justify their own thinking. The mystery that has been hidden from the past ages and generations is now being manifested. (Col 1:26) So are we seeking his mind or to validate our our thinking and traditions?

The LORD reminded me today people have a lot to say about other people. How can one praise God with their mouth and the next minute curse man made in his image and likeness (James 3:9). What caught me was he said man made in his image and likeness, he did not say brothers and sister in Christ that are born again (according to religious terms) are the ones made in his image and likeness. He said man, (strongs 444 mankind, any and all men) made in his image and likeness the whole human race that he judged innocent when he rose from the dead. How can fallen mankind be in his image and likeness when there is no sin in HIM and all men have sinned?

In Colossians 1:21,22 we have that answer. And you, being in time past alienated and enemies in your mind in your evil works, 22yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and without blemish and unreproveable before him.

The Mirror translation puts it this way. Vs 21 Your indifferent mine-set alienated you from God into a lifestyle of annoyances, hardships, and labors. Yet he has now fully reconciled and restored you to your original Design. (the word Reconciled in Greek is apokatallasso. It means to fully restore to the original value). 22 He accomplished this in dying our death in a human body; he fully represents us in order to fully present us again in blameless innocents, face to face with God; with no sense of guilt, suspicion, regret, or accusation; all charges against us are officially cancelled.

So in all this, when we see God in man, all people and honor him we, honor God our Father. We should be very careful of what we say about people. The Good news is telling people what God says and thinks about them. Romans 5:10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!

God has made up his mind about mankind at the death burial and resurrection of his son Jesus Christ and believing anything else is a lie against what God has done through his love of all mankind. Likeness is what allows us to have intimate relationship with our Father and one another.. We are made in his image and likeness. The gospel does not have to be so hard.

John 3:3 Things are not as they seem

My studies of this verse in John has opened my eyes to a deeper meaning and understanding. It is clear to me this verse has nothing to do with a person making a choice to be born again according to the traditions taught by men in religious churches. It also as nothing to do with heaven, or hell as some may perceive. Jesus was making a statement, settling a matter of the heart.

In my study, I do not see any indication of Jesus’ statement where he has put the responsibility of being beget, or born again as some teach on the hearer of his words. (John 15:16) Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

When one has sat in the institution of man-made churches for any length of time, being passive, we tend to start read into verses and make them say things that they are really not saying. Lets take a look and see how this verse differs from our thinking as we have causally read John 3:3

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. KJV

Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Verily, verily, I say to thee, If any one may not be born from above, he is not able to see the reign of God;’ YLT

Greek paraphrase of words based on strong’s concordance definitions, I urge the reader to look up the words for yourself and to begin to dig deep. (Parentheses are my comments) Things are not as they seem.

John 3:3 Jesus spoke, bring conclusion to the matter, Amen, Amen, I say to you, if anyone is not brought forth from the original source (God), (the source from which he was known before he was formed in his mother’s womb Jer.1:5,) to be able to, to have power (as a joint heir in Christ,) he will not be able to see with the mind, discern, perceive, or attend to, the kingdom of God, which is, the rule of Christ in the believers’ hearts. God who is, Creator and owner of all things.

In this conversation with Nicodemus, Jesus was laying the foundation of going to the cross for the whole world (John 4:42, 1 John 4:14) but Nicodemus did not understand.  Jesus said to Nicodemus unless you’re born from above (meaning you originate from above) you will have no interest for heavenly things! John 3:13. Man began in God not in his mothers womb. The new birth is not a result of a sincere decision one makes to follow Jesus. It is an awakening of your spirit to the truth of what already took place 2000 years ago when God raised Jesus from the dead. His resurrection from the dead included you. 1Pet 1:3, Eph 2:5, Hos 6:2

Get out of the Boat

the appearing

You have to get out of the boat to walk on water. In the natural, that would be impossible, but if you stay focused on Jesus it is possible. I would encourage each one of you to get out of the boat! If you choose to stay in the boat, it will be a stumbling block or even kill you. When the storms come and your being tossed from side to side, sinking as the water is filling up in the boat very quickly, you’re trying to empty it bucket by bucket and going nowhere. You’re getting tired and sinking deeper and deeper till you realize you’re going down and you’ve done all you can do. You cry out ” Jesus save us” but your eyes see a ghost, not the Lord.

But one seen Jesus. His eyes were opened. The others then seen Him too but their eyes were…
