Hosea 2:19

I will betroth you to Me forever; yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and justice, in loving kindness and mercy;

Hosea 2:19

After these judgments the Lord would deal with Israel more gently. By the promise of rest in Jesus we are invited to take His yoke upon us so the work of conversion can be forwarded by comforts as well as by convictions.

Nowadays we are more concerned with conversion rates and costs than we are with the betterment of our self and the cost of our souls …

But usually the Lord drives us to despair of earthly joy and help from ourselves, that, being shut from every other door, we will knock at Mercy’s gate. In too many cases today, we see people turning a blind eye to God’s calling and they seek other methods of distraction and satisfaction …

From that time Israel would be more truly attached to the Lord; no longer calling him Baali, or My lord and master, alluding to authority rather than love, but Ishi, an address of affection.

This may foretell the restoration from the Babylonian captivity; and also be applied to the conversion of the Jews to Christ in the days of the apostles and the future general conversion of that nation.

Genuine believers are able to expect infinitely more tenderness and kindness from their holy God, than a beloved wife can expect from even the kindest husband.

When the people were weaned from idols and loved the Lord, no creature could do them any harm.

This should be understood of the blessings and privileges of the spiritual Israel, of the true believer, and the partaking of God’s righteousness.

Here is an argument for us to walk so that God may not be dishonored by us: “Thou art My people.” God calls us His children …

If a man’s family walks disorderly, it is a dishonor to the Master.

Body Art 2 (Selfie Distortion)

Does anyone else anywhere see the distorted selfies and added media to faces as insulting to God? As we are made in His image … 

At first I wondered if it was my own vanity since I did not like people doing it with my pictures, however that is just not the case.

The act in itself is a vain atrocity. As far as I’m concerned it’s the same as damaging oneself and adding to your body (image) something that God does not want there.

It also feels evil to me. After all there are people who have defects and accidents which cause these unshapely looks.

I don’t find them funny or humorous, I find it offensive. People putting dog noses on their Facebook profile pictures is very ridiculous looking and stupid indeed. Some women like putting on the floral head piece. Fine, put on a real one and take a picture then. At least that looks nice … and real.

It’s no better or different than body art. I know as well there are pagan references in regards to this matter.

Ezekiel 3:21 Warning

“Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; also you will have delivered your soul.”

Ezekiel 3:21

This mission made the holy angels rejoice. All this was to convince Ezekiel that the God who sent him had power to bear him out in his work.

He was overwhelmed with grief for the sins and miseries of his people and overpowered by the glory of the vision he had seen. And however sweet retirement, meditation, and communion with God may be, the servant of the Lord must prepare to serve his generation.

The Lord told the prophet He had appointed him a watchman to the house of Israel. If we warn the wicked, we are not chargeable with their ruin.

Though such passages refer to the national covenant made with Israel, they are to be equally applied to the final state of all men under every dispensation.

We are not only to encourage and comfort those who appear to be righteous, but they are to be warned, for many have grown high-minded and secure, have fallen, and even died in their sins.

Surely then the hearers of the gospel should desire warnings and even reproofs.

Self Entitlement

“As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.”

1 Chronicles 28:9

Know thou the God of thy father – “Knowing God,” in the sense of having a trust in Him, is an unusual phrase in the earlier Scriptures. It rarely occurs anywhere else in the historical books. David, however, uses the phrase in his Psalm 36:10; and its occurrence here may be accepted as evidence that the entire speech is recorded in the actual words of the monarch.

During David’s last sickness, many chief priests and Levites were at Jerusalem. Finding himself able, David spoke of his purpose to build a temple for God and of God’s disallowing that purpose. He opened to them God’s gracious purposes concerning Solomon.

David charged them to cleave stedfastly to God and their duty.

David says, Know thou the God of thy father, and serve Him with a perfect heart and a willing mind. God is made known by His works and word. Revelation alone shows the whole character of God, in His providence, His Holy law, the condemnation of sinners, His blessed gospel, and the ministration of the Spirit to all true believers.

The natural man cannot receive this knowledge of God. But we learn the value of the Saviour’s atonement and of the sanctification of the Holy Spirit, and are influenced to walk in all the Lord’s commandments.

It brings a sinner to his proper place at the foot of the cross as a poor, guilty, helpless person deserving wrath, yet expecting everything from the free mercy and grace of God our Father, the Lord Jesus. Having been forgiven much, the pardoned sinner learns to love much.

Too many people seek forgiveness, yet do not seek change, truth and wisdom. Many believe they are doing right by God, but are decieved and misguided.

Lack of discernment or lack of caring or both are lost to the whole of society. God’s Holy law has been forsaken by us and yet we have the audacity to believe He us has forsaken us …

Self entitlement has been the ruination of churches and societies throughout the ages. Today it’s a far worse plague on mankind than it has ever been.

New World Country Fried

​Folks look. 

This is not the new year. The year doesn’t begin anew until spring. God’s new year, the Passover.

If a product says it’s not a GMO product, it is. If a product says it’s made in the U.S., it wasn’t.

When our soldiers go into the field, it’s to mass murder and pillage for corporate tyranny. They don’t fight for us, they protect an ungodly way of life.

Recently I have read many upon many Scripture that we all ignore or forget about. These things I’ve stated are only few matters covered by those verses. 

In my times of long suffering and overwhelming loss I was witness and victim to more reality and truth about this country, the church and the people in it than most dare to even ponder.

During those times I feared for my soul as much as for so many others. I’ve grown tired of trying to be a messenger. Nobody understands that the church alone is responsible for the foundation of a society. No one is willing to accept that the churches in this country are not being persecuted and shut down simply because they are not in the truth. They’re just like society, pagan and conformed to a false way of life, a counterfeit Christianity. A cult of Christianity. 

Idolatry and fake government has us so badly divided. Protection racket law enforcement has us fearing the wrong things and trusting the wrong people. 

Protesting and letter writing, town meetings and voting are false means for making change. They are deceptive methods of a system created and designed specifically to keep us from going to God and ourselves for self sufficiency …

When this nation was invaded by Columbus and his slave trade ships they started calling it the New World …

Think about that. The last days have been around for centuries. There are only a small number of truly godly hearted people left in this country keeping from being fried. 

We should all endeavor to be counted as one of them …
