Seek the Commandments of the Lord

1 Chronicles 28:8 KJV
Now therefore in the sight of all Israel the congregation of the Lord , and in the audience of our God, keep and seek for all the commandments of the Lord your God: that ye may possess this good land, and leave it for an inheritance for your children after you for ever.

I watch TBN and many a preacher complains about religion being rules and regulations.

If God is going to write his laws upon our hearts and minds, we have to let him. Having an open heart to seek his commandments is the first step. Keeping them is the second.

A Call to Shame

When preachers call the congregation to repeat a word or phrase in Church or leave you verbally wanting to respond, with a comment like “and all God’s people said …”. It is a shame.

Do you know why?

The answer is in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35.

Is every man ignorant? You have the right to be. 1 Cor 14:38.

Seriously, don’t look up these verses if you prefer not to know. Preachers, however, should know better.

Smoke and Mirrors

I had quit smoking. A few months ago I thought I’ll just have part of a cigarillo.

Well today is Sunday, October 22nd, 2018 and I’m smoking again.

I would appreciate your prayers to quit and keep the knowledge like pringles I can’t have just one.

In the past when I have quit it has usually been cold turkey combined with being broke. I know I’ve asked for your prayers in the past and I’ve asked for Jesus’ help. I have to admit most days my own willpower seems nil.

Thank you in advance for your prayers.

Unbelief

At one point, I thought I would spend my life in the Church of Christ denomination. Not because they do everything right, but because of the churches I am aware of, the Church of Christ seemed the lesser of error and evils. At the very least it has the right name. The COC understands baptism and offers the Lords Supper weekly.

Yet, I have concluded to leave the Church of Christ denomination. Here’s why. As a denomination they misinterpret 1 Corinthians 13:10 KJV But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. They erroneously declare this verse to mean an end of miracles because Jesus was perfect, he has been here, and thus the season of miracles is over.

Why is this crucial. Read the warning in 2 Timothy 3:5 KJV which accurately describes the modern Church of Christ denomination! Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

They sing songs, they pray, they offer the Lord’s Supper, but they do not believe in the very real power of God to perform miracles today.

It goes further than this, as I have spoken with and overheard members of the COC speak unbelief and dissension. One preacher said, regarding Pharoah and the plagues, he didn’t believe the Lord could reach inside a person and harden a heart. This is more than unbelief. It is argument against the word of God which clearly says God hardened Pharaohs heart. One said God couldn’t grant knowledge miraculously, but rather only through study and work. I was told this was logical. Another said he didn’t believe God could help a man walk perfectly before the Lord. These not only reflect disbelief they actively contradict the Word of God.

I suspect these opinions are mirrored in Church of Christ churches all over the nation.

This is serious enough that one should dissassociate with the COC. Why? Because God says to turn away. I have speculated maybe their deafness to truth and discernment is connected to their unbelief. I have also wondered if they are secretly and by majority the people described in 2 Timothy 3:2-7. If verse 5 is true could the inverse description of the people also be true?

All speculation aside, God commands we leave them in 2 Timothy 3:5 and He knows what’s best for us, his children. When someone wants to argue logic, remind them our relationship with God is not only logical, but passionate as well!

3 Points

Three points to ponder.

  1. If the USA was truly a Christian nation we’d still be British.
  2. Don’t try to teach Greek without mastering the English Bible first.
  3. You can’t leave your schoolmaster (the law) behind without graduation.

Something New

I’ve heard two preachers say, we don’t know who wrote the book of Hebrews.

Really. First, don’t include me in your we. I stand with the Holy Ghost inspired translators of the KJV. Over 400 years ago, they were convinced Hebrews was written by Paul.

Since my foundation is sure in the King James Version Holy Bible, I am able to see this modern controversy for what it is. It is another attack by Satan and unstable preachers on the KJV.

Make sure your foundation! You can trust in the accuracy and validity of the KJV.
