The Sword out of your Mouth

“The Kingdom of God is within you”. Luke 17:21

God has provided all that we have need of in this world. Jesus by His sacrifice has made it all availabe to us. We by our acceptance of Jesus as personal Lord and saviour have it available to us. But we have to be persuaded and believe and do not doubt in our hearts.

Mark 11:23 ” For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

How do we believe without doubting in our hearts? Become persuaded by repetion , undersanding and by being totally convinced that what the word says is true and then boldly speaking it out.

The trouble is we are moved by our physical senses and we have been trained that way to believe what they tell us is true. Say for instance we have a pain somewhere; we go to the doctor, get tests and the tset confirms cancer. We immediaately fear. Jesus always said “fear not”‘ and the word of God in the Bible says “That by His stripes we are healed” (Isa 53). We may repeat that a couple of times but next day its still there. Then somebody tells us “your cancer is real. It showed up on the xray. You are in denial if you say its healed. All sorts of words come aganst us by people who love us.
Let me use an analogy: A metal airoplane weghing hundreds of tons can fly. How? Its rotors and wings bring into operation a force greater tthan the gravity that holds it on the ground.
Your conviction of Gods promise that you are healed brings into operation a greater power than the cancer. IF YOU BELIEVE AND DO NOT DOUBT IN YOUR HEART.

Eph. 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The Bible yells us there is a devil and many demons. They operate in the thought realm or the realm of the spirit that our eyes cannot see. These demons use the natural realm of people and our phsical senses, to persuade us that what we hear and feel are the truth; the unchangable truth. But that is a lie. The highest (stronest) truth is God’s word. You will only believe that if you have commited your life to Jesus.

Pontius pilate said “What is truth”. God’s word is a greater truth if you can recieve it, just as lift is a greater force than gravity.
John 17:17 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”

Eph 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise.
Gods word is known as the “sword of the spirit”. It is an offensive weapon for defeating spiritual enemies. We speak to those demons like we command a dog. Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee. (Jas 4:7)

Faith, or belief acted upon, comes by repeated attention to God’s truth in the bible. it is a daily, moment by moment, way of life if you want to live in all the pomisses of God.
It starts by knowing that God loves you so mch that Jesus came to sacrifice Himself for ALL your sins, past, present and future. He has done it once and for all. he is not comig aan to deal with sin, He has doe that once and for all time and for all people. He did it because He loves you.

Gods objective is to get as many of us as he can in Heaven for eternity!

Chillcott

I remember the events that have lead to the Chillcott enquiry.

Sadam Hussein the dictator of Iraq, had made world headlines my using Chemical warfare on the Iraqi Kurds and killed whole villages of men, women and children. I remember seeing videos of the village streets scattered with dead bodies.

In Iraq chemical weapons were being used to eradicate dissenters to a particular regime, and it was very scary. These were weapons on mass destruction,or WMD’s that could be put in ICBM rockets and delivered anywhere in the world.

The Americans were particularly concerned that they could be targeted or so they said. It also happened at the time that Sadam Hussein was trying to establish a union of Arab states so as to control the world’s major  oil reserves. This would have given him great power over the West.

The USA wanted to invade and capture the WMDs and get rid of Sadam but it would have been an unprovoked aggression against a soverein state, and the UN was opposed to it. Therefore the USA persuaded it’s allies to support such an invasion by committing ground troops to the action.

For some time there was argument as to whether these WMD’s really existed.  The debate on the existence of WMDs continued for about three months.   We saw through internet sources three American generals witness to the fact that they were being moved to Syria and that Sadam was stalling for time whilst the WNDs were being moved.  Both the UK and Australia were persuaded by Presiden George W Bush that these weapons did exist and invasion of Iraq was urgent.  CIA evidence was daily coming in in order to persuade that there must be an invasion before the weapons were used on the West and any invasion the West mounted.

Of course by the time the invasion had succeeded the WMDs had been moved and the civil war in Syria had erupted preventing any search for the WMDs in that country. The media’s conclusion has been drawn that the weapons never existed and that the invasion if Iraq was unjustified.  Tony Blair and John Howard were pressured as friends of the USA, to support the invasion and they did so on misleading intelligence.

So to now rehash with a purpose to blame, is very unfair. I believe it’s a ploy of the  Globalist movement to destabilise Western governments. This destabilising of Western (Christian) countries is an ongoing agenda by the Globalist movement since they have gotten control of the media.  Christianity and Judaism are the main enemies of Globalisation and subsequently it’s main enemy.

With the extension of the internet and alternative sources of information, the masses are seeing the Globalist intent.  President Obama has used executive power so excessively to bypass democratic process that the populace of the USA see what is in train and are wanting to get their country back from the power grabbers. This is what we are witnessing all over the Western world.

 

 

 

 

The Past is Gone

I loved the 1950’s when I arrived in AUS from UK. Days when you could fix your own car and buy only if you had the cash.  (Dont misunderstnd me, I use credit but it is a trap for many; lenders and borrowers.) A time when a man sought a girl to love and protect; with his life if need be. When a girl loved her bloke and presumably felt complete in him; “Warts and all”. Christianity may have been a bit shallow but the Bible did set a cultural standard.  A time when we rode legally in the back of Uncle Johns ute to go to the drive in movies; it was probably a little unsafe but he drove accordingly.

Modern, 2016 life, has robbed us of many things.  Gender Equality is a fashionable term these days. Equal pay is a reasonable expectation. But how do people that are basically different, do things the same. Surely an employer pays for what he values. That said I know some employers are greedy. You can not legislate such things. Take female sport for instance; female cricketers  want the same pay rate as for males. But if twice as many people pay to watch males, that cannot be justified. Why do people watch more males play sport? Because it equates to war. There is  a carnal blood lust in most people. In  Christian cultures that is denied for a higher life. There is not the same stimulus from watching women fighting. In fact it reduces the attraction from a male viewpoint and I think males are more oriented toward sport than females. The more spectators the more the pay. Simple economics!

The greatest enemy to women has been the ‘gender equality’ push. The majority of men that love a woman want to protect her and provide for her. When he works hard for his pay, he shows his love by ‘spoiling’ her with some gift or pleasure. These days with her earning, some of the family income is her money as well so she has a say regarding how it is spent. He is no longer the decision maker.  He is denied the pleasure of blessing his wife!

Men traditionally settle dusputes with violence. This is why we have wars! Many men who are not leaders in their own homes,  become frustrated and tend to violence. A ‘womens libber’ for a wife exacerbates his frustration. I am not excusing anviolence toward such a wife, I am simply explaining where it comes from. A contented man loves his wife and does not get drunk and beat her. There is no legislation that can stop this. It starts in training to young boys and girls about the different roles and mutual respect.

Of course sex is a very strong driving force in men. That is the survival of the species! In most women its only strong till they have children. A real man will only enjoy sex when his woman cooperates enthusiastically. I can never understand rape. What pleasure can a man get when he is resisted during sex?  I would imagine nothing but guilt.

I would guess that most domestic violence is caused by words. I cannot imagine a man abusing his wife without verbal provocation.  Obviously there are exceptions to every generalisation.

I do think the current emphasis on wife abuse is causing more harm than good. Injustice stirs an emotion if anger and resentment. Women who are in good marriages, are tending to be anti male. They think every male is a rotter! Many men are tending to pull back from leadership for fear of being branded misogenous. Politicians are are calling for equal resentation in politics; I believe its in hope of getting the womens vote.  Men ‘per se’, are born to lead, women are born to be a helper of her husband.  There are exceptions in every generality and the world has seen some very effective women as leaders with obvious giftings to lead.  The Bible tells us  Moses learned that there are levels of leadership, ” … rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties and rulers of tens.” (Ex. 18:25)   A man or woman can be promoted in leadership above their level of competence.  If he is not proven in small things how can he take responsibility for greater?

The so called ‘feminist’ movement is causing divisionin in the community at a foundational level, the relationship between man and wife. Anything divisive in community I consider satanic.  The media is giving this subject as much time as international migration (refugees).   God calls for peace, harmony and cooperation.

I believe in justice, but gender equality seems impractical. When I worked in engineering we had women apply for jobs in the foundry.  Many castings were over 30 kilos in weight and had to be dragged around the shop while still hot to clear the floor. The shop super would show the girls this job so they knew what was required.  If they still wanted to try, this was where they started. They complained they were being targeted but the super argued if you limit your capacity you can’t expect the same pay. To get the same pay you have to be able to do the same work.

The past is gone in our four dimensional existence.  Will it ever return?  I dont think so. Anyway the past was not perfect. Let us press forward to that which is perfect. It is outlined in 1st Corinthians 13:4-8.

 

A Tantalising Idea

An Interesting Theory

This is an interesting theory.   God created man.  I won’t go into debates;  you either believe it or you don’t.  According to scripture God created man in likeness to Himself. A likeness in all ways one must presume. He is a creator therefore man is potentially a creator.  We use the word create when we paint a picture, write a story or build a building but that more correctly is making not creating. Creating is making out of no matèrial.  Words are not material but are reached by the physical senses, i.e. hearing.

So God created man in His own image.  Then God put the man to sleep and divided him into two parts (not types). Male and female. The female came out of the male.  After this the male was deficient of the things taken out of him to make the female; he was missing some things that were in God and that had made him like God because they were now in the female.

Does it make sense that to be like God the two have to come back together again?

Let us say “yes” for arguments sake. If so then the two coming together can create like God does.  Guess what, when male and female come together they can create a new man. In the book of Adam and Eve it tells us when Eve conceived and gave birth to Cain she said ” I have made a man.”  When a male and a female co-operate in sex they become creators. This is a miracle of God reproduced by man.

Does man’s creative power end there or does it go beyond procreating children?

I think it goes beyond!

What is the special power of male and female co-operating?  It was intended according to Jesus that a man should have one wife for life. Is there a special power in married couples that is beyond the natural power of agreement ?( Matt. 18:19 )   I think there may be.

The nèw covenant emphasises the need to die to self. There is no greater challenge to die to self than marriage: at the same time their is no greater motivation than the one you choose to marry and spend your life with. To get the most out of marriage each has to die to self and defer to the other. The extent to which you ignore this law the marriage relationship suffers. Now people are different, the environment is imperfect.  Personalities and temperaments differ.  Some are takers some are givers and the spectrum in between is all of us. We become fearful of being taken advantage of; for good reason, we have seen it happen in others, so we retreat from the optimal and thus deny ourselves the potential that the optimal offers.

I think that a married couple that both truly desire to achieve the optimal in marriage and therefore prefer to the other, will have Godly power when they truly agree. Even with the greatest desire and diligence on both sides, this takes a lifetime.

So first its commitment. Commitment to the spouse you have chosen.  Ask God for His confirming. Naturally you will need to know God first.

Next, whilst preparing for the wedding ceremony try to find agreement in all decisions. This will identify the differences in the way you think and they will manifest fast and numerous unless both are unusually compatible. The more incompatible the greater the work. The greater the work the more the reward.

Sex! Not a nasty word.  God set it up that way. It plays a very important part if used correctly. But that is a subject of its own.

Democracy and Freedom

YOU probably thought democracy and freedom meant the same thing; how wrong can you be!

I have been looking at some old WW1 footage. It showed ordinary men stirred by a propganda of nationalism killing other ordinary men stirred by a propaganda  of nationalism. One quote was that 770,000 German soldiers were killled. There was probably a lot more.  The cause was governments with a political ideology stirring the citizens to hate another nation and making it a law of the land to go fight them. We all get inextricably caught up in such things.

I was in my fifth year when WW2 started. One of my early memories was watching a Heiinkel bomber circle my town three times before dropping three loads of incendary bombs on the local gas storage cylinders. The resulting fireball is still an easily recalled picture. From that point on I was taught to hate German people.  Later I was to suffer much in many ways because of the war.  It was many years later that I finally realised it was but a few men that were the cause of the war and not every one in uniform.

I do remember  man in grandpas town who was alianated from the rest because he was a ‘cocientious objector’; he refused to fight the German enemy.  Peer pressure is not a new devise!  Where was freedom in this instance? It is true one has to physically resist evil but when we think of biblical history there were often times when Israel was told to ” …stand ye still and see the salvation of the Lord with you” ( 2 Chron 20:17)  I often how wonder much we don’t appropriate of what God has provided because it seems too far fetched.

Now in 2016 we are seeing in the wonderful land of the free, yes in the red white and blue USA, a culmination of presidential autocrats endeavouring to overthow the principles of democracy and enslave its 350 million citizens to  demonic regime.  Yes this  current Muslim president endeavouring to turn it over to a demonic religion.  How could this happen in a democratic country with a covering constitution designed to stop this very thing from happening?  This my friends is the danger inherrant with a Republic and executive power. Let not Australia go down this humanistic path.

The Bible tells us of God’s chosed people Israel wanting a King that  could lead them in battle. This, after their faith in God, had given them victory after victory, oftimes with supernatural happenings. Without faith it is impossible to please the God of creation (Hebrews 11:6) If we dont call on God He will not answer!  The initiative is always up to us.

The Torah of the Israelites warned them that a king would tax them and take their children to war but although they had seen victory after victory, they did not have faith in God.

Today we are seeing the same thing accross the planet. Leaders of nations without faith in God and seeing themselves as god. Thinking they can organise to stop wars and even change the climate. What a pitfall of pride!

There is a giveaway to who is leading these leaders! Their enemy is the people of the Bible. The Jews and the  Christians are being marginalised and persecuted.  What the Bible says is right, these leaders say is wrong, what the Bible says is wrong, these people say is right! Their leader is Satan the archangle that was Lucifer.  Lucifer means the bright and morning star but iniquity was found in his  leadership and he was cast out of heaven to the Earth and his name was changed to Satan, which means the accuser. Satan can put evil thoughts into our minds and then accuse us of them.

The Bible has said that God will not strive with man forever but will limit him, his life span,  to 120 years (Gen. 6:3). God counts time on the Earth in jubilees of 50 years. One hundred and twenty jubilees is six thousand years. That time is nearly completed. Satan, the devil knows he has but a short time to do his very worst to the sons of men. Thus we see the outworking of those that serve Satan who can do nothing except he persuade the sons of men.

The Bible tells us that the responsibility for Earth He has given to the sons of men. (Psa 115:16)  Furthermore God will limit Himself by His own word; (Psa. 138:2)  it follows then that He also can do nothing on the Earth except through men that follow Him and His son Jesus Christ.

We are in the midst of the final great struggle  before God the Son returns to show men righteous rule on the Earth for one thousand years. The ‘Sabbath millenium’ of rest!

The Bible tells us that Jesus will defeat the servants of Satan, the enemies of Gods people, at the end of the six thousand years of history and set up His Kingdom for a thousand years of righteous rule according to Gods ways.

Rightnow in 2016 we are in a period of history which is unique. Things are happening politically that we would nover have dreamed possible,  especially in America.  Many are confused and faced with ruin and poverty. Conflict is everywhere, cities are in ruins, weapons can destroy the planet. Technology cannot cure cancer but can manipulate the human DNA.  It is a time to return to the God of the Bible, He alone is above all these things. “Call unto me and I will answer you ” He encourages us. (Psa. 91:15)

 

 

For Every Effect there is a Cause

In this world of very great change there is always a cause for change and there is usually an effect of that change. This blog endeavors to suggest some of the causes to the changes that we are experiencing.

For instance the political world is endeavouring to suggest that some changes apparent in the worlds climate is the result of industrialisation. Despite evidence from both side of the debate the political world is pressing forward with the issue as a major reason for one world government eclipsing all national sovereignty.

In other words their is a persuasion existing among some leaders in our world that unless we have one body controlling all the people and resources we will destroy our planet making it unable to sustain human life.

This ‘body’ of people who are generally unknown, think they are the only ones with enough intelligence and wisdom to run everything and direct our lives. The one thing these people have in common is that they don’t believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob or Jesus Christ as the saviour of mankind. The only ‘god’ they believe in is humanity itself. The ironic part is that they are accused of worshiping the antithesis of God in Lucifer.

The leaders of this movement are starting to come into clearer focus in the governments of the world, particularly the developed nations, that is nations  that have previously been known as strongholds of faith in Jesus Christ.

Let me add this observation.  One hundred years ago we were in the middle of World War One, in that hundred years the League of Nations fell apart and the United Nations has become the focus of mans endeavour to stop wars.  Since the end of WW2 the UN has bought many resolutions to stop conflict.  Ninety percent of those resolutions have been against one of the smallest nations on Earth; Israel!  A nation of seven million in a world of over seven billion! Is this an example of mans wisdom and intelligence?

The Bible has been man’s manual for behaviour and success for nearly two thousand years but it seems, this persuasion of OWG has come upon this generation that many believe is the last generation, before the world itself undergoes some dramatic changes as prophesied in the Bible. This blog will endeavour to put some biblical wisdom to that and other subjects the ‘movement’ is endeavouring to impose on the whole population of the world without it’s consent.

Foreign Newspapers

Many foreign newspapers that are endeavouring to manipulate the masses are unable to do so by print version are now using the internet.  This is a borrowed by permission article.

Regarding the Guardian on line newspaper. Many of the articles on internet news come from the Guardian. It has promoted Turnbull and been anti Abbot, has promoted the climate change argument with emphasis on everything following the Obamam/Pope position. In other words it is the purveyor and mouthpiece of the UN and OWG (One World Government) and runs at a fantastic loss.  What business keeps running at a loss?
The following is an extract from Wikepedia.

“In August 2013 The Guardian in paper form had an average daily circulation of 189,000 copies, behind The Daily Telegraph and The Times, and ahead of The Independent.[4] The newspaper’s online edition was the fifth most widely read in the world as of October 2014, with over 42.6 million readers.[5] In the UK, its combined print and online editions reach nearly 9 million readers.[6]

The Guardian has been consistently loss-making. The National Newspaper division of GMG, which also includes The Observer, reported operating losses of £49.9m in 2006, up from £18.6m in 2005.[99] The paper is therefore heavily dependent on cross-subsidisation from profitable companies within the group, including Auto Trader (which the Guardian Media Group sold in January 2014[100]).
The Guardian’s ownership by the Scott Trust is probably a factor in its being the only British national daily to conduct (since 2003) an annual social, ethical and environmental audit in which it examines, under the scrutiny of an independent external auditor, its own behaviour as a company.[101] It is also the only British daily national newspaper to employ an internal ombudsman (called the “readers’ editor”) to handle complaints and corrections.
The Guardian and its parent groups participate in Project Syndicate, established by George Soros, and intervened in 1995 to save the Mail & Guardian in South Africa, but Guardian Media Group sold the majority of its shares in the Mail & Guardian in 2002.
The continual losses made by the National Newspaper division of the Guardian Media Group caused the group to dispose of its Regional Media division by selling titles to competitor Trinity Mirror in March 2010. This included the flagship Manchester Evening News, and severed the historic link between that paper and The Guardian. The sale was in order to safeguard the future of The Guardian newspaper as is the intended purpose of the Scott Trust.[102]
In June 2011 Guardian News and Media revealed increased annual losses of £33m and announced that it was looking to focus on its online edition for news coverage, leaving a physical newspaper that was to contain more comment and features. It was also speculated that The Guardian may become the first British national daily paper to go solely online.[103][104]
For the three years up to June 2012, the paper lost £100,000 a day, which prompted Intelligent Life to question whether The Guardian can survive.

In 2014, The Guardian launched a Membership scheme.[106] The scheme aims to reduce the financial losses incurred by The Guardian without introducing a paywall, thus maintaining open access to the website. Website readers can pay a monthly subscription with three tiers available.

Political stance and editorial opinion[edit]
Founded by textile traders and merchants, The Guardian had a reputation as “an organ of the middle class”,[107] or in the words of C. P. Scott’s son Ted, “a paper that will remain bourgeois to the last”.[108] “I write for the Guardian,” said Sir Max Hastings in 2005,[109] “because it is read by the new establishment”, reflecting the paper’s then-growing influence.

The paper’s readership is generally on the mainstream left of British political opinion: a MORI poll taken between April and June 2000 showed that 80% of Guardian readers were Labour Party voters;[110] according to another MORI poll taken in 2005, 48% of Guardian readers were Labour voters and 34% Liberal Democrat voters.[111] The newspaper’s reputation as a platform for liberal and left-wing opinions has led to the use of the epithets “Guardian reader” and “Guardianista” for people holding such views,[112][113] or as a negative stereotype of such people as middle class, earnest and politically correct.

Former Guardian features editor Ian Katz stated in 2004 that, “…it is no secret we are a centre-left newspaper…”.[114] In 2008, Guardian columnist Jackie Ashley said that editorial contributors were a mix of “right-of-centre libertarians, greens, Blairites, Brownites, Labourite but less enthusiastic Brownites, etc” and that the newspaper was “clearly left of centre and vaguely progressive”. She also said that “you can be absolutely certain that come the next general election, The Guardian’s stance will not be dictated by the editor, still less any foreign proprietor (it helps that there isn’t one) but will be the result of vigorous debate within the paper.”[115] The paper’s comment and opinion pages, though often written by centre-left contributors such as Polly Toynbee, have allowed some space for right-of-centre voices such as Max Hastings and Michael Gove. Since an editorial in 2000, The Guardian has favoured abolition of the British monarchy.[116]

Need I add anything! If its in the Guardian I wouldn’t believe it!
