Clouds & Destinations

"And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies. Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled. The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice. And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them." 2 Samuel 22:12-15

A Trance and Doctrinal Invention ~ Dispensationalism

Recently brought to my attention: How Dispensationalism came into being. Before you get 'taken in' by this doctrine, read this!
"Beginning in 1826 and through 1829, a few preachers in Scotland emphasized that the world's problems could only be addressed through an outbreak of supernatural gifts from the Holy Spirit. In response, Isabella and Mary Campbell of the parish of Rosneath manifested charismatic experiences such as speaking in tongues. Around 1830, miraculous healings were reported through James Campbell, first of his sister Margaret MacDonald and then of Mary Campbell (through James's letter to Mary). Shortly thereafter, James and George MacDonald manifested the speaking and interpretations of tongues, and soon others followed suit in prayer meetings. These charismatic experiences garnered major national attention. Many came to see and investigate these events. Some, such as Edward Irving and Henry Drummond, regarded these events as genuine displays from the Holy Spirit. Others, including John Nelson Darby and Benjamin Wills Newton, whom the Plymouth Brethren sent on their behalf to investigate, came to the conclusion that these displays were demonic." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_MacDonald_(visionary)


"One of the most common objections to Dispensationalism offered by Preterists and Covenant theologians is that, according to them, it was an invention based on a 'vision' ascribed to a young Scottish girl named Margaret MacDonald. 

As they tell it, in 1830, she had a vision about the end of the world and when she came out from under her trance, she wrote it down. This account attracted the attention of Edward Irving and his church later claimed Margaret as one of their own prophetesses.

Irving also had an interest in prophecy and held prophetic conferences. The historian of Irving's church claimed that Margaret was the first person to teach a two stage second coming of Christ.

John Darby traveled to Scotland to visit the MacDonald home. Darby was a lawyer until a year after his conversion when he was ordained a deacon in the Church of England. Soon after entering the ministry he became disillusioned with the institutional church and started the Brethren movement in Plymouth, England.

Darby became known as the 'father' of Dispensationalism, the first eschatology to incorporate the 'prophecy' of Margaret MacDonald. Darby continued to develop this new view by becoming the first to make a radical distinction between Israel and the Church."

Who Or What is The Center of Our Lives?


In this world, this is the common mindset ~ reflective of our nature.


When we become believers in God and His Son - the Living Word, Christ Jesus - for our lives we are changed, made spiritually alive by the renewing and regeneration of His Holy Spirit! Made into new spiritual creatures ~ placed in the Body of Christ for Eternal Living.

Our priorities change as well and we're freed from the bondage of trying to fulfill the lusts of the flesh and our every want and desire than is never satisfied but for a second!

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

Dusting off some of the "Stories of Old."
This condensed vid of some of the Bible characters speaks to how the LORD God has been involved in men and women's lives from the beginning, and still is today!
Some cults teach God is not longer involved in the matters of our lives, but is that true? Where in Scripture does it say that the Lord has 'left the building - that His Spirit no longer resides here?'
Even atheist believe more about God than some 'so-called believers' at times!

This vid was inspirited by the fact that God writes. He wrote on stone, He wrote on the wall, He wrote on the tablets of our stony hearts, He wrote in the dirt and wrote a Book - the Holy Bible.

And He wrote our names in HIS BOOK OF LIFE, when we believe upon the ONE HE SENT – JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOUR!!!

Anything or anyone who takes away from GOD'S GLORY AND BEAUTY is to be avoided! We, and those who've been noted in HIS BOOK, are either "with Him" or against. Either way, He uses all for the perfection and completion of His Amazing Plan! To magnify His Son, the LORD JESUS CHRIST! above all! And we get to be a part of this WONDROUS LIFE if we choose!

This show and background music were both stewing on the back burning for close to a month! The topic was originally: He wrote in the dirt. Which was Jesus when he was writing in the dirt regarding the "accusing group of men" who found a women in the act of adultery.
Leviticus 20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.
For all we know, these men set it up to 'trick Jesus' and see what he would say. Jesus knowing their sinful hearts and turned the point of this topic right-side up for them! Notice it was only the women and not the man involved they brought to him.

By the Law she was to be 'put to death' but Jesus condemned her not- showing GRACE and MERCY he proceeded her along, "Go and sin no more." - preparing the way for the New Covenant of Salvation. This has always been the WAY of Salvation = Believing God!

The progression and completion of this trust and faith includes Believing on His Son and being born again (anew) by His Spirit, by which we are sealed until the day of redemption!

Oh if only we would rest on and in this Grand TRUTH!
Now, today and Live it to the Full!

Pleasing Unto the LORD

Blessings Come From God's Grace and Mercy




Man's religion isn't God's. Jesus spoke against it, the practice's of man that lead NOT to Salvation in Matthew 23:
All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. ... But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

Works Preachers Don't Save

There are many ministers of the devil, both in religion, cults and spiritual teachings.
Anyone who distorts the simplicity of God's Salvation message found in the Gospel of Grace - Gospel of the LORD - is not of God our Father!
2 Corinthians 11:3But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Psalm 10 - Fitting for today's world

How relevant this is even today. Nothing new under the sun.

Psalms 10
Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?
The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.
For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.

The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.
His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.

He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.

He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.
He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.

He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it.
Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.

Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it.

Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.

Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.

The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.

LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.
***

We know from God's word that He is not far off, but because we don't know or understand what or why He allows things to go on as they do, the events of the day can seem confusing and bizarre!

As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. 2 Samuel 22:31

Rejoicing In God's Goodness!

Living Water is Life giving not only in the physical world, but in the spiritual as well.
We don't drink 'dead water' and expect it to benefit our bodies, same it true with spiritual water.
Jesus Christ is the Living Water that gives Life for us spiritually in the here and now, AND into Eternity.
Reading His Word, the Bible (KJV), is as drinking water into our spirits.

The Holy Word of God refreshes our souls. Revives our spirits. 
Plugging into His Source of Goodness is good for our whole being – our spirit, soul and body!

Enjoy some thoughts Debbie had in her blog posting "Living Water" that helped inspirer this little show!

Why Evil Always Wants To Trump Goodness

Evil is evil and it does what it is.
When a person's filled with it, that's what they do ~ evil things stem from evil an heart and ungodly thoughts.
Just as it's best not to believe a liar – even if it's ourselves! – we behoove ourselves to seek Truth.
Since we've been fed lies since birth, this can be difficult, for not knowing truth except in theory and not application. Only when Truth is welcome into our lives and being can be begin to see it – begin to realize things aren't what we were taught or assumed them to be and Life thru the eyes of Truth is valuable, worthy of our pursuit!
The sinful nature of a person strives to keep the upper hand over truth, selling itself to lies, finding itself more enslaved than ever.
Those who tend to want to be in control are usually the ones unworthy and unfit for the position.











Left to our own devices we will never become who or what we can be with the holy Spirit of God working in us and we allow Him to lead us.
