A call to Churches & Believers - Return to God's Pattern For His Church & The Family
Whatever good may be found in me is because of the grace and teachings of Jesus Christ.
Whatever is lacking in me is of my own faults and unregenerate human nature, of which I have hope in Christ.
Whatever is your opinion of me as a failure is my witness to you of our need for a Redeemer.
I'm not a professional writer, do not have a theological degree and ask that you forgive my limited writing abilities.
That being said, I pray you will stand against the deceit and deceptions of this present age by sending
this website far and wide. Or, do something yourself that others may have the opportunity of
"Knowing For Themselves."
THE GREAT COMMISSION
Each Believer is called to Proclaim the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the uttermost parts of the earth.
In essentials: Unity and Love.
In non-essentials: Understanding and Love.
In all else: Truth, Charity, and Love.
A MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE OF ALL NATIONS
This web page originates from the Republic of The United States of America.
To those in other parts of the world remember we like you wish to live in peace with others, have a home,
food for our families, clean drinking water, shelter and clothes, access to health care, to be educated, to have a good and honorable way to provide for our families, and the freedom to believe in our Creator who loves His creation and desires that we love one another.
Like you we want the freedom to speak, read books, to become educated and freely express our ideas without fear.
Like you we have leaders who want to keep people divided by turning us one against the another.
Like you, we do not want leaders who seek power, wealth, or want to rule over others no matter how much suffering and death they cause when doing so.
Like you we hope and pray for a better life for ourselves and others (believers and non-believers) no-matter in which country they may live. Always remember these things when reading, listening, or watching what is being reported and taught about any country and it's people.
Peace to all in our shared hope that our Creators loves each of us. Trusting He will bring peace
to the world and wipe away the tears from the eyes and heal the hearts
of all who have suffered at the hands of those who do not seek peace, truth, love, or their Creator. Daniel R.L.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Romans 5:7-9 (KJV)
Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Isaiah 1:16-18 (KJV)
Choose this day whom you will serve. Will it be the Prince of this fallen world or our soon returning Saviour?
The pages regarding the need for returning to [God's Pattern for His Church & God's Pattern For The Family]
are the two most important post on this website. They are provided to share with Believers,
Christian Leaders, Seminaries, Pastors, Elders, Teachers, and non-Christians to understand the need of
returning to God's Pattern for His Church and Family, not mans compromised churches or "religions".
What is the purpose of life and where are we going?
ALL intelligence, all life, all things seen or unseen, all that is known or unknown, all that may exists in any dimension, universe, form or place, originated from and is sustained by GOD. God created man from the elements, breathed into him The Breath Of Life and man became a Living Soul. We are not here by chance or accident dear reader it was planned from the beginning. "In the beginning God" Genesis 1:1
"Before I formed you in the belly I knew you and before you came forth out of the womb, I sanctified you." Jeremiah 1:5
"O Lord you have searched me and know me. You compassed (understand fully and completely) my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways...Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it...Where shall I go from thy spirit or presence?...For you have possessed my reins: you have covered me in my mother's womb...for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well...My substance was not hid from you when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought...Your eyes did see my substance, yet being not perfected (physically or spiritually) and in the book (DNA Code) all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned when as yet there was none of them. Psalm 139: 1-17 It is written " I will put my law in their inward parts and write it in their hearts; and I will be their God and they shall be my people."....Jerimiah 31:33 and again it is also written: "I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts and will be their God, and They shall be my people...." Hebrews 8:10
"Our Creator gave each a book with ink and pen, in which our life to write. Then at the appointed time He will read what we have written upon its pages. Word by word, line by line, chapter by chapter we chart our destiny for the ages. Our life on earth etched within our souls recorded in The Book of Life, copied from each life's pages" Daniel R.L.
"....The Soul that rises with us, our Life’s Star, hath had elsewhere its setting and comes from afar; not in entire forgetfulness, and not in utter nakedness, but trailing clouds of glory do we come from God, who is our home..."
William Wordsworth, Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood.
WHY ARE WE HERE? There is no need to travel the world seeking enlightenment atop mountains, in caves, in temples, in churches lit by dim candle light, or men dressed in priestly garments. The meaning of life is written within men's hearts by our Creator and is witnessed throughout the heavens, if we would but open our eyes. We begin our life on Earth given the gift of life, our physical body, and our individual consciousness. We are nurtured within an earthly family, and in turn have our own family with it's responsibilities. We interact with others, experience life and death, sickness and health, happiness and sorrow, truth and lies, pain and pleasure, the just and unjust, and all the trials of earthly life. To grow in knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. We are here to experience those things common to mankind and to be good stewards of the earth. We are given the ability to choose the spiritual not the temporal, good not evil, morality not immorality, wisdom not ignorance, peace not war, kindness not cruelty, and love not hate. We are accountable for our choices which effect ourselves, others, and define our eternal destiny. Dear Reader we must govern ourselves from within (through God's Spirit) or others will do it from without.
It is Gods purpose that we become aware of our individual consciousness, our relationship with Him, our interrelationships and responsibilities with others. All of which is the reason for our existence and the source of eternal happiness. It is through experiencing mortal life and death we obtain the ability to truly comprehend the gift of eternal life. It is Gods desire and plan that we learn how to sustain ourselves, grow in knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. But we find ourselves unable to live the basic spiritual principles we have thus far been given. Are we to expect greater enlightenment? Yes. However might it be more correct to ask? If we receive further enlightenment would we not do more harm to ourselves and others physically and spiritually? Let us each strive to live the truths we now have knowing Gods Holy Spirit will reveal to us what we are ready to receive.
WHERE ARE WE GOING? Like little children we are pilgrims on a spiritual journey. GOD has always been involved in the lives of individuals, families, communities, towns, nations and the world. This will continue throughout eternity. God has written upon our minds and hearts a consciousness of right and wrong with a spiritual desire toward Him which only He can fulfill. God loves us. He has given us the ability to choose to be His adopted Sons and Daughters destined to inherit the coming new glorified Earth and His many other creations, throughout eternity.
We are on a spiritual journey in a fallen world. We are on a journey called destiny. The path we are on has two rails to guide us. One is truth the others is love. Remain on the path guided by the rails and continue until you come to a very steep hill. Do not look back. Steadfastly continue up the hill no matter how difficult or dark the journey.
Know this fellow Pilgrim; it may be that about the time you grow tired and are about to give up the quest you will apprehend, dimly at first a light shining from the other side of the hill. Down through the darkness to give you strength to complete your journey. And you shall know for yourself God is love, light, and truth. Those who truly seek Him shall find Him and know Him for themselves.
Yes you can Pilgrim and here is His promise to you: John 14:23-26
"If a man (or women) loves me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. These things have I spoken unto you being yet present with you. But the Comforter which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." Study and Ponder these words carefully Pilgrim for they mean exactly what is written. Amen.
We are all on this journey together. Lets help one another along the way.
No-matter who you are,
No-matter where you are,
No-matter what your condition,
God is there. for all who truly seek to know Him.
God provided four points of reference to guide us on our journey.
* His Holy Spirit * His Written Word * His Answered Prayers * His Witness Within Creation
It is necessary in today's society that we develop communications awareness.:
WHEN READING: Read what is written, read what is not written, and read what is between the lines.
WHEN HEARING Hear what is said, hear what is not said, and hear the message between what is said.
WHEN SEEING: See what is, see what is not, and see what is hidden within the shadows and darkness.
We live in a world of lies, delusions and deceptions inspired by the Prince of this world.
Stay strong; fight the good fight.
THOSE who choose to live immoral lives view Christ as judgmental.
THOSE who choose a life of lies and treachery view Christ as their competition.
THOSE who choose to live by the law view Christ as a stumbling block.
THOSE who choose to trust in man's wisdom view Christ as foolishness.
THOSE who choose to acquire money, power, and rule over others view Christ as weak.
THOSE who choose to live as unbelievers view Christ as their enemy.
We now endure suffering by faith which we shall come to know is for our understanding and benefit!
Where once there was deception and darkness there will be light!
What is now beyond our comprehension will be revealed!
What seems impossible with us is possible with God!
What appears unjust will be justified!
What is unclear will become clear.
Truly we are not without hope
Remember Gods ways are above mans ways.
Life's adversities and our redemption are reconciled within God's Eternal Love, Holiness, Righteousness, Wisdom, Justice, Mercy, Grace, Redemption, Power, and Glory
It's not about buildings or denominations.
It's about Jesus Christ and being Born Again.
It's a personal relationship and Knowing For Yourself.
Those who truly choose and accept Jesus Christ are Born Again as adopted sons and daughters of God.
Only God knows the intent and abilities of ones heart, mind, and soul. God will do what is right.
An open letter to all Christian Denominations, Pastors, Priest, Seminaries, Church Leaders, and other Religions, spiritual organizations, or philosophies, including non-believers.
This page specifically relates to God's pattern for His Church and is truly relevant for the times in which we now live. It provided to be shared with Church leaders, Pastors, Elders, and all members of the Church to awaken Believers (and non-believers) as to the seriousness of what is happening and the urgent need to return to God's ways not man's.
Dear Reader the Message Of Gods' Plan of Salvation is being redefined by false teachings within the Church and those who seek to re-image God and the world after their own making. What then shall we do as Christian Parents, Church Members, Pastors, and Church Leaders?
We must return to God's pattern for His Church which is - Jesus Christ and Born Again Believers having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit our True Teacher, Our True Guide, our True Comforter along with God's Written Word. This is The Church of God and The Kingdom Of God.
This then is the order of the Church and how Believers participate in the Great Commission:
God, our individual relationship to God, our preordained responsibility of witnessing to our Families, our Extended Families, our Neighbors, our Community, our Country and the World. This Is God's plan for us (individually and collectively) to take part in the Great Commission. Ponder this carefully to truly understand and apprehend the potential of reaching others, God's Way.
Come, follow us. We will teach you "our ways."
Mans end time Church is filled with: Pride/Power, Complacency/Self-centeredness, False Worship, and Idolatry.
What than is the Church of God?
The Church is: Jesus Christ, Born Again Believers having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit , Our True Guide, Our True Teacher, Our True Comforter and God's Written Word.
It is not about mans religions, mans self defined spirituality or ornate buildings to worship in. Christ did not say build wood and stone buildings to worship in, construct meeting halls, basketball courts, set up special events and programs for soul winning. Have Christian rock music festivals, promote super star pastor conferences, and organize so many programs that they detract from our first responsibility, our family. These "programs/formulas" are mans ways shadows and substitutes for what God truly desires. Which is? That we abide in Him and He in us that we may be one. Jesus Christ did not come to establish a Religion He openly taught against Religion. The Church is defined in Scripture as Individual Believers having a committed personal relationship with Jesus Christ the head of the Church who fellowship with one another. The Church today would do well to consider the early Church grounded in Jesus Christ, keeping His commandments, based on the family (ordained by God) with the Husband as the spiritual leader with his Wife at his side together as one instructing their sons and daughters, their extended family, sharing the Good News with others and fellowship together. "For we are laborers together with God: you are God's husbandry, you are God's building (His Church)." Dear Reader please read I Corinthians 3:4-11 and know for yourself.
" We must have a new reformation. There must come a violent break with that irresponsible, amusement-mad, pagan type of pseudo-religion which passes today for the faith of Christ and which is being spread all over the world by spiritual men employing un-scriptural methods to achieve their ends." "A Church fed on excitement is no New Testament Church at all. The desire for surface stimulation is a sure mark of our fallen nature, the very thing Christ died to deliver us from. Aiden Wilson Tozer
Jesus Christ is the Church and all who truly believe and follow Him are it's members.
> In essentials: Unity and Love. > In non-essentials: Understanding and Love. > In all else: Truth, Charity, and Love.
History teaches us that from the beginning (and now) evil men (children of the Prince of this fallen world) sought to compromise and destroy Christianity causing terrible spiritual and physical suffering deliberately standing against the plain Gospel of truth, peace, and liberty. Truly, this is not of God or true followers of Jesus Christ. Wolves have entered the Church, Seminaries, Bible Colleges, and Christian Organizations thereby leading many astray. I do not write these thing to be negative or discourage but to awaken you to the seriousness of the spiritual warfare which is now being waged for men's souls, minds, and bodies. Do not be deceived by those who deliberately teach false doctrines openly rejecting the plain teachings of Jesus Christ. They seek to establish mans religions, priesthoods, philosophies, governments, psychology, and spiritual organizations. They "knowingly" reject truth using deception and flattery deceiving even the elect all of which we have been forewarned. If you find yourself in such an organization which after being shown their errors will not repent, humbly bear witness of man's Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and that we are to keep His commandments. Pray for it's members, it's leaders, and depart in peace.
Are we saying not to join a church? We are saying before joining any church or religion or so spiritual organization, pray, search the scriptures, understand the principles of salvation and seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Carefully research their fundamental beliefs? Do they follow the teachings of Christ? Is the Bible used as the final authority for sermons and other instruction? Is the Bible being taught book by book, chapter by chapter, line upon line, precept upon precept? Do they modify or reject the clear teaching of Scriptures in order to be more accepted by the world? Is there a sense of reverence, order, love, and a passion for the truths of Gods Word? Do they acknowledge the fundamental principles of the Gospel: The Deity of Jesus Christ; The Virgin Birth; Christ Atoning Sacrifice for our sins; Christ Bodily Resurrection and His returning to establish the Kingdom of God upon the Earth. The gift of the Holy Spirit, in-errancy of Scriptures; that we are to keep Gods commandments (knowing that all will fall short and rely upon God's plan of salvation) the need to be Born Again, the Resurrection, and that each of us will stand in judgment before God to give account of our life upon the earth. Trust your eternal destiny only to God, not churches, spiritual organizations, pastors, priest, spiritual leaders, philosophy, emotions, works, traditions, mans writings, signs, wonders, spirits, secular leaders and mans or science, none of them, ONLY GOD.
If Christians and others do not stand against the organized promotion of evil, deception, corruption and death that we now see in the world today Christians (like Christians in the First Century) will need to leave there fallen worldly church's and establish Home Fellowships (Churches as in the past) and meet secretly (risking imprisonment or death) as now happening in other parts of the world. Returning to the original pattern of the Gods Church will be the Last Reformation and Revival before the return of Messiah.
IT HAS BEGUN
It's Not about Religion And Never Was.
Mans churches have failed because of the apostasy, false teaching, and corruption within them.
“It’s not about man’s religion, Churches, or Denominations - it never was”.
God: Creator, Father, Law Giver, Savior, Teacher, Comforter and our Guide.
God: Established marriage between a man and women.
God: Established the Family, its sacredness and the sanctity of life.
God: Designated specific responsibilities and callings for Husbands, Wives, & Children.
God: Designated men to be the Spiritual Leader of the Family.
Dear Reader keep reading and you will soon understand why.
God: Established the Priesthood of Believers’. The Church: Jesus Christ, and Born Again Believers having the indwelling the Holy Spirit, our True our true Comforter, our true Teacher, our true Guide and His written Word.
The Church: The Family and Assembly of Fellow Believers.
The Church: Not about buildings, man’s priesthoods, or denominations.
What If: - Pastors no longer have to neglect their own wives and children?
- Pastors no longer have to fear preaching the truth to their church members?
- Pastors no longer have to be concerned with raising more and more money for the Church?
- Pastors no longer have to babysit those who never grow spiritually?
- Pastors no longer have to become involved in “church politics”?
- Pastors no longer have to deal with are the seats comfy, preparing perfect sermons to increase offerings, additional funding for building programs, daily expenses, worship music, counseling, parking lots, greeters, counseling church members, sports and activity programs, summer bible schools, hurt feelings, backbiting, building maintenance, just to name a few things pastors are responsible for.
What If: - Fathers were truly the spiritual leader of the Family as taught in Scriptures? - Fathers provided for and protected their Families (spiritually and physically) cherishing their wives and children?
- Wives stood with their husbands co-equal in their responsibilities as ordained by God as taught in
Scriptures? - Wives and husband brought up their children as God instructed?
- Children absolutely knew their parents loved and cared for them?
- Children learned by the example of Godly parents?
- Children were taught to read and understand the Bible at an early age in the home, rather than from someone else?
- Children were instructed in the home how to discern truth and think for themselves. (Think about how this would form bonds between family members.)
How can a pastor or minister with a family truly be effective managing all of the above?
The short answer they cannot. Why?
Because it can only be achieved by following the pattern of Gods Church.
God's Church is the people of God organically connected to God. At Pentecost, when the Spirit breathed upon God’s people, this organic connection came to life. Thus we see terms for the church like: ‘living church,’ ‘body of Christ,’ seed planted that produces fruit 30, 60, 100 fold.’ When church is understood this way, its development becomes less about planning ‘how to build’ and much more about learning to facilitate the life cycle that is already inherent within it. The simple DNA of the living church is evident:
1. Intimacy with Christ. The abiding living relationship with God is at the core of our life with God and the life that grows out of the church (God’s people). Jesus did not invite us to follow a religion of rules, nor did he mandate an order of service or church structure to follow. He did ask us to follow him. Out of that flows all of the life, joy, and power that we need to live fully in him and for him.
2. Reaching out with love. The experience of being loved by the God of the universe produces an outward desire to love and reach others with the same Gospel love. This is not a project nor a program, but a way of life that involves an outbreak of Jesus’ love toward others.
3. Disciple making as a lifestyle. This is not about what we have to give to others, but it is about relationships in which we come alongside people while they discover that God speaks directly to them. We walk with them but the word and the Spirit of God become the teachers. The Bible, indeed, is far more powerful than we realize. It has the power to transform hearts and lives, all by itself, through the energizing of God’s Spirit.
4. Gathering simply and in a participatory manner. Gatherings are family-based and allow every person to grow spiritually, care for one another, and exercise spiritual gifts. Healthy missional-family gatherings continue to encourage the upward, inward, outward processes of loving God, blessing one another, and reaching out to others. What we do see in Scripture are many different types of gatherings which took place frequently, naturally, and often spontaneously… They took place in normal, everyday settings and they fit into the rhythm of everyday life.
5. Empower others to go, reach, disciple, and gather. This is the function of ‘leadership’ as it seeks to serve others who are becoming fruitful, vibrant, and reproductive. Everything is given away: spiritual authority, recognition, encouragement, opportunities to minister and serve. This leader empowers others so well that his or her own ministry goes virtually unrecognized. Where does one begin? It is difficult to get away from the idea that there must be a one-two-three blueprint to follow that will allow me to facilitate the growth of ‘a church.’ But it is more about lifestyle than planning and more about listening to God than following someone else’s map. Still, there is an intentionally that can move us forward. These five rhythms become essential to discovering how God would have us walk with him in the growth of his church. There are many tools and methods for walking out each of these rhythms (perhaps a subject for another post), but through prayer and listening, God is able to lead us to those tools and methods that will be best for our context
These are the Five basic DNA elements of the living church and five rhythms to help guide us and when we are diligent about walking out these rhythms, God will lead:
1. Godward Rhythm: How can I root myself more deeply in His love?
2. Missional Rhythm: What field(s) am I assigned to sow in? Where is my Calcutta? Who is my next 'person of peace?'
3. Discipleship Rhythm: Who has God provided to mentor/disciple me? Who can I invite into a discovery, encounter with God through His word to walk alongside as he/she learns to follow God for himself or herself?
4. Community Rhythm: Who am I called to build one-another community with?
5. Reproductive Rhythm: How am I empowering my disciples & community to do the same (#1 - #4)?

"A man shall leave his monther and father and be joined as one flesh to his wife." Gen: 2:24
To all Pastors and all Denominations:
Begin teaching this is NOW!!
" Fathers, it is an honor and your responsibility from God. Pray with those in your family together and with them individually. Administer blessings for those in your family by the laying on of hands, and baptize those in your family into the Body of Christ
“ What we now accept as Christianity is vastly different from what first century Believers practiced and believed. Mans "Churches" have been instituted by men who "assumed to themselves authority" and "ordained one another" with their "priesthoods" to control others. Scriptures clearly teach the Church is: Jesus Christ, Believers, and their True Teacher, Comforter, and Guide, God's Holy Spirit! "
"Why then do we go to a mere man, when we can go directly to God through His Son, our High Priest?
We need to return to the pattern of the church as followed by first century Believers. ”
Gods true pattern for His Church.
Jesus Christ is born and begins His ministry fulfilling those things that were written of Him in Torah and Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.
Christ calls his apostles, The Gospel is preached by the Apostles (men who actually new and walked with Christ). The priesthood of Believers established, Churches are in Believer’s homes, families are the Church the corner stone being Jesus Christ, Believers and There Families.
The Church Of God Is Formed:
Jesus Christ, Born Again Believers having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, Our True Teacher, Our True Comforter, Our True Guide and God's Written Word.
The Gospel of Repentance and Salvation is proclaimed to
mankind: We are saved by faith through Jesus Christ, are Born Again, receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, and are adoption as Sons and Daughters into the Kingdom of God.
The early Church begins,
Believes grow in the gospel teaching their children and one another.
Men are the spiritual leader in the home Gospel taught and lived in the home. Fathers teach, bless, and baptize their wife and children.
Families observe the lords supper in the home. Families share the Gospel in their daily lives associating with others. Others accepting Christ then duplicate what they have experience with others. Believers’ begin sharing the Good News, house to house, community to community, region to region into the known world.
Believers take care of their families in sickness, in health, and as they advance in age and come together (as an Assembly or group) to do the same for fellow Believers and others. Believers teach, help, and assist family members (and others) to become self sufficient and not to be a burden on others.
Much more can be said here but I leave it up to you Dear Reader to continue the ways the Family and others can benefit when God's Church is lived.
Jesus Christ dies for the sins of the world. Apostles not understanding scatter when Christ is though dead.
The Temple Vail is torn (by God) from the top to the bottom signifying that we may approach God ourselves without the need of Priest, Ceremonies, or Temples. And the old covenant with its many purification ceremonies, sin sacrifices, temples, and priesthoods is now fulfilled in Christ, our New Living Covenant.
Note: More about the importance and meaning of the Temple Vail is posted below.
Apostles then gathered after the resurrected by Christ,
Christ gives final instructions before ascending into Heaven.
Apostles boldly teach throughout the world, Two were replaced by who had known Christ while He walked upon the earth, Apostles martyred leaving the Priesthood of believers and church houses,
First century Believers’ house churches go underground,
Wolves enter the church and the church devolves,
Men wax worse and worse,
We now enter the end of the church age and have been warned to flee mans godless churches and the coming one world religion. Study the Scriptures “prove all things holding fast that which is good’, be not deceived, and be convinced yourself about these matters and their spiritual significance. Then armed with God’s truth and The Holy Spirit (our true Comforter, Teacher and Guide with the Written Word) you may stand against the Prince of this present Age and his followers.
Then, no longer deceived by the failings and heresies accepted within compromised Christianity do we continue as in the past? God forbid. We have been admonished by God to flee Babylon so that we are not overcome by the deceptions which are intensifying throughout the world. Do we fabricate and piece together another man made denomination with self-ordained institutionalized priest or pastors to promote yet another Church?
Do we bow to a mega religion which morphed into some kind of hybrid spiritual philosophy, science based trans-humanism, gender neutral, progressive, all inclusive, emotion driven, there is no sin, truth is relevant, right is wrong, technocracy, accept it or die Unified World Religion Alliance, God forbid.
Dear reader do you recall what occurred when Christ paid in full for our transgressions when he cried out “It is finished.” "After this Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said, I thirst. Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, it is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost." John 19:28-30 (KJV)
Where have all the Fathers gone? Who will teach them of God's pattern for their Home and Family?
Gods Priorities for us:
God, Our relationship Him, Families, Friends, Those Next Door, Communities, Towns, Cities, Nations, and the World.
The Family and Believers are under attack. Husbands and Wives divorcing leaving children to suffer the consequences "into the third and fourth generations." Families were a long ways from being perfect but it was better than the alternative.
Those who teach Fathers are not needed or the traditional family (one man and one women) is no longer acceptable are tragically un-informed. They are deluded, lack common sense, or are inspired by the Prince of this present world.
TO ALL CHURCHES, FATHERS AND MONTHERS:
IF YOU WILL HAVE IT HERE IS HOW THE FAMILY CAN BE RESTORED.
Make no mistake there has been a powerful, planed, well funded, deliberate, and successful effort to destroy Families. It is my humble opinion that what follows is our only true hope to save the traditional Family. Indeed, the traditional Family is so looked down upon these days one wonders if it can be restored?
The that said; Those coming from a loving traditional home cannot understand the emptiness of a home without a father or mother. There is no way of truly communicating the impact upon children. It would be like trying to explain to natives living in deepest part of a jungle that men and women are walking on the moon, sail in metal ships beneath the sea and have weapons that can instantly destroy great cities killing millions of people.
Being a good father can only be learned and truly understood by having a father who “lived it into you” so that you as a father, in turn “live it into the next generation.” Oh, you can read about it or see it in others but it requires experiencing a good family life to truly comprehend all the intricacies, emotions, quarreling, inter-relationships, lies, sacrifices, competition, disagreements, hurts, healing, name-calling, love, forgiveness, etc. all of which is to be kept under control, and shepherded by Godly parents. Oh, you didn’t know that?
Family life is not for the inexperienced, week or simple minded. Experiencing a good family life where “growing pains” are properly contained, dealt with, and used in the maturing process is critical to raising children. Without a good family life with its failures and successes a person from a fatherless home will experience years of immaturity with inherited negative effects of growing up without a father. The traditional family unit of one man and one women is now looked up as outdated and marriage is being re-defined to accept group marriages, same sex marriages, and adults marrying children, as equally valid.
When I think of those who have suffered because of broken homes and violent upbringing it brings great sadness and anger. I am astounded to see or read where supposedly educated people (including many churches) who define the modern family as any multiple of persons regardless of their sex (male with male or female with female) or their perverted carnal predispositions now having the legal right to adopt babies and children. If you disagree with this folly you will be sharply criticized. If you do not support this new definition of family you are labeled as intolerant and by law need to be re-educated.
Dear Reader please follow me here. I am now going to present something which we have lost relating to how men (after God’s own heart) bond to wives and children establishing a loving enlightened home. And how boys become men and how a men becomes a Father.
The family has been under attack for so long one wonders if we have lost the ability to adequately define it. Is it still possible to re-establish the essential spiritual elements of family life? Do we have the discernment to recognize the importance of family as God views it? Are we ready to do what needs to be done to save it?
The following analogy is based on Scriptures and is clearly given for our edification. Almost daily we hear of women being ordained as priest, minister, Bishops, or other positions and some are starting their own Churches with their own supposed authority and priesthoods.
WE SHALL BEGIN HERE.
HOW CAN BOYS BECOME GOOD MEN AND GOOD MEN BECOME GOOD FATHERS?
We hear of women being ordained as priest, ministers, Bishops and other positions or starting their own Churches with their priesthoods. The scriptures give examples of women anointed and chosen by God to serve in various capacities and callings held by men but not ordained as a Minister or in positions of Leadership over Believers. If a situation arises where a women have accepted Christ and there is no existing believing man to function as a pastor then a woman may serve as a coordinator and teacher sharing and teaching the plan of salvation until a man who is a Born Again Believer is found to teach the True Pattern Of Gods Church And Family.
Like many others I often wondered why only men were ordained as pastors and leaders in the church. Truly God does not do things haphazardly. There must be reasons why He establishes boundaries and defined responsibilities? What could they be? Women have one of the greatest gifts granted from God. They are called to participate with Him in delivering a new life (a spirit, mind, body) into this world. The birthing process lasting nine months with all its emotional highs and lows, trials, and trauma of giving birth, establishes a lifetime bond between mother and child which a man cannot experience nor truly relate to. He can only remain near offering what comfort and support he can. Here we may understand why in Gods eternal plan men are ordained and are held responsible to be the Spiritual Father of the family and serve as Pastor/Leader “Father” to the body of the church.
Why you ask? "And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Luke 1:17"
Because this is how a man participates in the birthing process. Now please consider carefully. The Mother is ordained to bear, give birth and sustain her children participating with God in His eternal plan of bringing souls into the world. The Father is ordained to be the spiritual leader of the family providing protection and spiritual instruction to the family with the end result being that they understand their relationship with God, are spiritually Born Again and have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit all of which are explained in Scriptures by which Fathers (men) participate in God’s eternal plan of bringing souls into the world and the Kingdom of God.
Now we see how a man becomes a father after Gods own heart. By teaching and being with his children, modeling his life based on faith in Jesus Christ and keeping the commandments. Through “living” these principles the Father now truly bonds with his children and Mother remains near offering support, advice and comfort. He is the true Father we would like to have and a blessing to the Mother and their Children. It is here men also mature socially becoming an asset not only to his family but to all those around him.
In Gods wisdom men are called as the spiritual leader of the family responsible to love, teach, and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ together as a family adopted into the Kingdom of God. This responsibility reaches beyond to extended members of the family and those unaware of the promise of salvation, to be shepherded “Fathered” and “Born Again”.
When it’s done Gods way the bond between a Father, Wife and Children will stand the test of time. With homes such as these Wives, Sons, and Daughters will respect and honor their Father and the wisdom they inherit as they are loved, taught and witness to his walking sincere commitment to Jesus Christ. They will acknowledging him before men and God. I invite you to study this matter until you are fully persuaded of its validity and need to be followed in Christian Churches.
* Mothers by their God give instinct take naturally to caring for their child. Wives: Fathers who would do what has been written here need your support because of how they may have been raised and remember secular society is at war against men and the family. He will make mistakes along the way. He will lovingly care for and discipline the children (especially the boys) differently than you which is natural and how God intended it. Be ready to step back, observe, support him and give any advise in private in humility and then step back. Your children will turn out for the best as long as you both overcome your shortcomings and walk in the light of Christ. Do not expect perfection it will not happen in this fallen world for Him, You, or the Children. But then you knew that? * By the end of the first year children are able to eat solid food, have begun to talk, and possess cognitive abilities. They are ready to be instructed as appropriate for their age continuing to the age of accountability being about eight years dependent on their natural abilities. Having been spiritually shepherded by their Father and Mothers children will be ready to exercise their decision to join the body of Believes.
Dear Reader this is a serious matter. I hope you will forgive my shortcomings in addressing such a important subject. Please prayerfully consider what has been written and search the Scriptures so that you may Know For Yourself.
Todays shatered homes are far from what was invisioned as a standard for Christian Families.
"And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom."
What then is the meaning of the temple veil being torn in two ?
What message was given to Believer in Christ ?
In the Jewish temple the veil served as the barrier to the Holy of Hollies where it was believed God's presence rested housed the Ark of the Covenant. Only the high priest could enter this area and then only one time each year to make atonement for the sins of Israel (Exodus 30:10). First Kings 6:2 records that Solomon's temple was 30 cubits high. This would have been 45 feet tall. Note: The first century Jewish historian Josephus records that Herod extended the temple's height to 40 cubits high, about 60 feet tall. He also records that the veil was four inches thick. Matthew 27:50-51 says, "And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom."
Notice the details: (1) Jesus died. (2) The enormous 45 to 60-foot high four inch thick curtain was torn. (3) The tear was from top to bottom clearly indicating the destruction was not of man but truly of God. This connection between the death of Jesus and the torn veil is not just about God's power. It witnesses to us who Jesus Christ is, what the cross accomplished, and the access we now now have to God through Jesus Christ. Hebrews 8:1-2 "Now the point in what we are saying is this: we have such a high priest, one who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, a minister in the holy places, in the true tent that the Lord set up, not man." Jesus Himself now serves as our high priest. There is no longer a need for a Jewish high priest to stand before the Lord and make atonement for our sins. Jesus has provided for our atonement through His death on the cross. In addition, the tearing of the veil also helped to mark the beginning of a new covenant. Hebrews 8:13 states, "In speaking of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away."
A powerful application of this change is described in Hebrews 4:14-16: "Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Instead of coming to a priest, we can directly and boldly come before God through Jesus Christ to receive mercy and grace. Jesus meets our needs and even identifies with our weaknesses. The tearing of the veil is profoundly significant and provides a pictorial foundation for how we can approach God today. God has torn down the barrier between Himself and us through the work of Jesus. http://compellingtruth.org

Who will rule the world a Tyrant, Deceiver or Redeemer?
See Video. "You are in error Mr. Wordsworth there is no God, and the State has ruled you are obsolete."
Remove one freedom each generation and soon you will have no freedom and no one would have noticed. Karl M.
What of Governments, Mans Laws, The Powers That Be? Who will you choose to follow? A Caesar? A Deceiver? or Redeemer? Throughout history world government has been the ultimate goal of those who would rule in the earth. It is now being established and make no mistake it will occur. It's time has come driven by Economic, Social pressures, and Technological advancements. Be not deceived the true world government will come under Gods direction, not mans. Until then consider how do we live in this present world? "And He (Jesus) said unto them render unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods" and it is written "Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom whom custom is due; fear to whom fear is due, honor to whom honor is due. Owe no man anything but to love one another; for he that loves another hath fulfilled the law."....and "He who lives by the sword will die by the sword".
Now carefully ponder this advice from Scriptures: "And they (local leaders) called them (Peter and John) and commanded them not to speak at all, nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered saying unto them, whether it be right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God; judge yourself." Which is to say....Christians are responsible to determine and follow what is right in the sight of God rather than man. Luke: 20-25, Romans 13:7-8, Acts 4:18-19. Christians are to conform to what is right in the eyes of God not the world. "Be at peace with all men overcoming the trials of this life through the strength, grace, and love of Jesus Christ."
Now we must be wise and not as little children in these matters. In a life threatening situation self defense may be necessary if there are no other alternatives. In such cases it is reasonable to do what is necessary to protect yourself, family members, and others. "Finally my brothers, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might...."For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world and against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." See: Ephesians 6:10-18. Be not deceived. We now live in days of great spiritual deception because of mans philosophies, religions, and compromised Christian Churches. There will arise from this deception a false "spiritual leader "who will unite the religions of the world. At this same time a great "political leader" will arise having great authority and political power over the world. "Together" they will establish a Word Government. Those truly committed to Jesus Christ will be excluded and persecuted.
We are in a mess today because of what we hear from local churches is fake.
The Fake Gospel has lead to the destruction of this once-Christian nation.
Fake words lead to fake behaviors.
Fake behaviors lead to fake laws. Fake laws lead to fake justice. Fake justice leads to fake liberty.
Fake liberty leads to a fake God.
A fake god leads to a fake Christians. Jesus said that people have eyes and ears yet they can't discern reality (Truth).

Dear reader know this: "...In the last days perilous times shall come. For people shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, un-thankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, haters of those that seek to be good, traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof; from such turn away......for they are ever learning, not able to come to the knowledge of the truth". II Timothy: 3:1-7 Therefore be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is good, acceptable, and the perfect will of God. For I say through the grace given unto me to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith". (Romans 12:2-3
In there own words: https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/9716/christian-clergy-islam
Our condemnation because we love darkness rather than light and our deeds are evil. Now if we love darkness and our deeds are evil the Scriptures testify that we hate God. But we have hope because God first loved us while we were separated from Him because of our sins and sent His Son to be our Redeemer. If we ourselves choose not to love light, not to love truth, and do not turn from evil, we are without excuse. Let no man, philosophy, or organization stand between you and God. This is your responsibility and a decision which God has ordained you make for yourself."Prove all things and hold fast to that which is good".
How then shall we live? Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, what soever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things". In as much as we earnestly strive to do these things (understanding that we are not yet perfected) our eternal destiny is secured through faith in Jesus Christ.
"Truth is a lonely warrior the battle not for the faint of heart or those lacking spiritual discernment."
The Armor of God.
Why do we need the armor of God?
What is the armor of God?
How do we put on the armor of God?
What we are up against, a few examples.
The world now openly rejects Jesus Christ and His teachings: "Do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened. If you are reproached for the name of Christ happy are you, for the spirit of God is with you." 1 Peter 4:12-14 and "Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the one who goes with you and will not leave you nor forsake you."
The enemies of God are now seeking to Eliminate prayer, Sharing our faith in Christ, Discredit the family as an institution, Portray fathers as dumb and lazy, Encourage promiscuity and divorce, Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as ‘normal, natural, healthy, Infiltrate churches and replace revealed religion with ‘social’ religion, Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a ‘religious crutch., Control schools using them for propaganda, indoctrination, promote group thinking and destroy individual thought, promote feelings rather than logic, Lower curriculum standards, Control teachers’ associations, Control textbooks and student newspapers, Create social unrest by turning people one against another, Establish an progressive income tax, Debase the currency, Gain control of the health care industry, Establish Political Correctness to eliminate free speech, use the dialect process and other social control tools, Infiltrate churches and teach lies, take over the entertainment and music industry promoting immorality and hate....control political parties so there is an illusion of differences thereby ruling the masses without their knowing, The end justifies the means lie, steel, do whatever needs to be done. Such are the tools of the Prince of this world and those who have sold their souls for power, money, and fame to rule over others no matter the cost in suffering and death to others.
But know this: Our Creator is in control, there will be a time of accounting, and those who have done such things will be held accountable.
More to come
More to come
Rewriting the past and obliterating the present, we now live in a world of illusions, lies, and deceptions.
"Prove all things hold fast to that which is good."
"Trust, verify and verify again."
The Prince of this world and his followers seek to rule over the bodies, hearts, minds, and souls of mankind. We live in the time of which we have been forewarned. The planed elimination of individualism, families, and Nations has begun and shall continue until the coming of Messiah to establish The Kingdom Of God On Earth.
