The Word as an Onion

Posted by truthoughts on November 19, 2013

Image

 

Too many merely accept the Word on the surface.  They pick and choose this verse or that and build their doctrine out of it.  One instance for example is that in regard to adultery.  God’s Word says that you should not commit adultery; wherefore, those who have not slept with someone outside of their marriage stand prideful in their security of purity.  This, however, is not the end of the story.  Jesus clarifies years later that the action of adultery is only part of committing this sin, as merely looking on another with lust is another part.  This obviously changes the picture and condemns those who once prideful stood in confidence as they realize that they too have committed adultery in God’s eyes.  Well, the rest of the Word is no different. 

 

You might consider these to be loop holes, caveats, requirements or restrictions to the rules, but I will call them layers of understanding in creating the whole picture rather than a surface image.  We are warned in the Word that though we might begin with milk, basic foundational concepts, we must graduate to meet, dig into the layers that change us into the full image of Christ… not just a watermark. 

 

Let’s take a look at another example, one more involved.  Let’s look at salvation in its self.

 

In Romans 10:13 we read that whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved, and this is where most leave it… on the surface of the issue.  Without the complete picture, however, many might be dangerously deceived in the end.  Now, before you puff up your prideful feathers as those who were certain they never committed adultery… take a deep breath and consider what I am about to share.  Let’s begin by taking a look at Matthew 7:21 and 12:50, “Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  For whosoever shall do the will of My Father which is in heaven, the same is My brother, and sister, and mother.”.  Ok, so now we can see that it is not merely about calling on the name of the Lord, but about doing the will of God.  Now the question comes up of what is the will of God because many can be deceived in this as we can see in continuing on in Matthew 7:

 

“Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:22-23, KJV).  Wow, so if all these powerful displays of faith and works are not doing His will… what is?  For this we will look at Matthew 25, focusing on the last half of the chapter after the list of works done or not done by the many.  You can read in Matthew 12:40,45 the Lord’s new layer on this onion for those who do His will verses those who do not, “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.  Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me” (KJV).  This is merely a clarification of what He said another time in Galatians 5:14, “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (KJV).  This is where the heart of the onion is.  Many stop at the surface layer, calling upon the name of the Lord, but never peel back to be conformed to His Word and His image by walking in His love, which is to sacrifice yourself for another (clarified in John 15:13), so many on their day of judgment, believing themselves to be saved, will find out differently, making their race run in vain (Galatians 2:2, Philippians 2:16). 

 

You might ask why the Lord’s Word is like this, to which I would refer you to Proverbs 25:2, “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter” as well as, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15, KJV).  So, when someone thinks the Word is contradictory, it is just that they have not peeled away the extra layers to get to the complete picture, as each layer sheds a deeper light upon the previous layers of understanding.  As you peel away the layers, as with an onion, you may shed some tears, but keep peeling because the heart of the matter is where the meet is…and your reward.

True and Righteous Judgment

Posted by truthoughts on July 5, 2011

I am writing this in regard to the recent outcome of the Casey Anthony trial (Story Here). As many of you know, she was found not guilty other than of lying to a police officer in the death of her daughter.

Well, I wanted to share some perspective on this. Many have very heightened emotions about this and are outraged of the verdict. This is understandable. I would like to make a point though that I feel many are overlooking in this matter across the board.

If we keep a true Christian perspective in this situation, we will realize that what she has done is no more evil in God’s eyes than anything anyone else has done. Whether she murdered her daughter or just lied to the police, both are equal in God’s eyes and deserving of eternal judgment in hell.

If you have ever in your life told a lie, even one you may consider a “white lie”, you too are deserving of eternal hell in the same manner as one who has murdered their child. Unless there is true repentance and a faithful and continued commitment to follow Christ Jesus, then our fate will be the same.

Many, even those professing Christians want to jump on an emotional bandwagon crying out for justice, however I am reminded of a story told in Scriptures of a woman who committed adultery and the masses wanted to stone her to death, as was the law. When they brought her to Jesus to see what He would have them do though it seems it was more about them being justified by Him in their execution of justice. The Lord Jesus surprised them by His response.

The Lord responded that he who is without sin should cast the first stone.

This was showing those ready to execute righteous judgement upon this sinner that in God’s eyes, her sin is no more deserving of death than any of theirs.

We all have committed sins worthy of death and eternal judgment. Yet, the Lord is patient with us that we would come to repentance in Him and choose to follow Him so that His sacrifice would cover us.

I have seen many already write Casey off as being unsavable since a jury has found her not guilty and that she will never come to the understanding of her sins and have a repentant heart. We must not jump to such a conclusion for as long as she is alive, there is hope for her.

We as followers of Jesus should earnestly pray for her salvation and that the Lord God of all will be glorified in and through her. If she does not, then God will have the last Word and it will be sure, righteous and swift. If she does turn to Christ through repentance, imagine the impact she could make for the Lord.

Keep in mind that if the Lord and other believers gave up on you because you told a lie, stole something, killed someone, disobeyed your parents, etc. where would you be? Keep this in mind regarding all people.

Everyone must come to a full and truthful understanding of their sins, the weight of their sins, the judgment of their sins to be able to be repentant to salvation. The good news of the gospel is not that you are accepted in Christ but that Christ has made a way through Him for you despite your sins, the evil you have committed against Him and those around you.

Many have overlooked some sins because they continue to commit them… such as disobedience to the Lord. When you choose to disobey the Lord Jesus, you are continuing in sin willfully.

Hebrews 10:26-31 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

This is a good witnessing opportunity for those following Christ Jesus. With so many who are emotionally upset regarding this situation yet do not see themselves as justly deserving of the same punishment as they desire to inflict, this can open their eyes to their need for salvation just as Casey. Do not let this opportunity pass by as we will all be held to account for what we have done with all the Lord has given us for His glory in Christ Jesus.

A Compelling Date to Watch

Posted by truthoughts on May 8, 2011

I was doing some research on Israel’s Anniversaries and came across something that may be of significance. Now, before I go any further, please understand that I am NOT predicting ANYTHING… I am merely pointing out an interesting bit of research that I think is significant enough to share for your consideration.

Okay, here goes…

We know that Israel’s Independence Day by the Hebrew calendar correlates to our Gregorian calendar of May 9th – May 10th. Well, I was wondering when the anniversary was for their 6 Day War… This took more time to research than you can imagine but the results are quite interesting in this year of 2011.

What I found was that Israel’s 6 Day War Anniversary for 2011 is on June 3rd – June 4th (as they consider a day from sunset the day before to sunset of the calendar day, just as the Bible states).

Well here is the interesting thing to consider… Ascension Day, when the Lord Jesus went to Heaven as the disciples looked on and were told by the angle that He would return in the same way) lands this year on June 2nd – June 3rd.

So, in a way… they could be considered the same day as Israel considers days being that IF it were the rapture day… I did say IF!

That could mean that the Church’s ascension COULD BE in the morning of June 3rd and the 6 Day War anniversary be the same Gregorian calendar day of June 3rd but after sunset.

Remember that I am NOT predicting ANYTHING… I am just pointing out an interesting fact that could or may not be anything at this point. I just wanted to share this with you for your consideration.

Another point to ponder is that some believe Ascension Day to also be the separation of the end of the barley harvest and the beginning of the wheat harvest. This may be significant to those who believe the Church is the first fruits of the barley harvest and the 144,000 being the wheat harvest.

Again, this is just for you to ponder and consider… I am NOT predicting ANYTHING.

Possible Prophetic Implications for May 2011

Posted by truthoughts on May 2, 2011

I was doing a study of my own while I came across a video one of my good friends posted a few days ago that goes along with some of my findings in a very powerful way. I will first post the video and then my very quick study below that.

Here is my quick study:

In May we begin the 2nd month on the Hebrew calendar which is also the same month that Noah entered the ark, the month of Iyyar.

Genesis 7:4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

Genesis 7:9-11 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth. In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

May 13th is the 10th day of the 2nd month which is from sunset May 12th to sunset May 13th. Seven days later is May 20th which is sunset May 19th to sunset May 20th.

It makes for a good watch date, especially since it is right before the May 15th day that the Muslims will be protesting in Israel that may cause the Damascus war.

An additional thought is that the planets that align for the Bethlehem star are May 11th to May 12th.

Being Prepared

Posted by truthoughts on April 3, 2011

Someone shared a sermon with me given by David Wilkerson, whom as you know is a very devoted man of God. I would like to share it with you and I HIGHLY recommend that you give it a focused listen. This is an MP3 version.

This sermon begins with sharing a dream he had and goes into what it means to be ready for the Lord. Be prepared dear friend because the Lord will come back just as He said.

The Road To Hell Is Paved With Cookies

Posted by truthoughts on March 28, 2011

I know you are probably thinking, WHAT?! Let me explain.

Tonight, my husband and I went to the grocery store to pick up some last minute things. It was a little late, around 9’ish but we didn’t want to have to go tomorrow. So, while we were there, shopping for what we needed, we happened to notice that some of the store food items were expired. One of which was a container of cookies, hence the title of this post.

I know you are asking yourself, “So, what do cookies have to do with going to hell?”. Well, I am getting to that.

We decided to bring this to the attention of the on duty manager because this was not the first time we have come across expired food there. Well, after we checked out, we found the manager and proceeded to inform her of the cookies. She looked at us puzzled as though she wasn’t sure what we wanted her to do about it. So, she said, “Well, I can sell them to you for a discount.” To which we replied that she cannot “sell” expired food.

She then looked dazed and replied in a prolonged tone, “Ohhh-kaaay”. She then took the cookies and walked off.

Now, to the point.

Many times when things happen, I think about how others might think or how they might respond and I then evaluate what the Biblical way of handling a situation would be.

I thought about how some may say or think in that situation that it could be free food since they cannot sell it and then rationalize that we should just take them next time and just not say anything at all. Then I thought to myself, “Its not worth going to hell over a box of cookies”.

I know some may think that is a harsh statement or judgment against anyone who might actually go through with something like that about what seems to be a small matter, however the Bible tells us otherwise.

I would like to share some scriptures with you regarding this. I do hope that you can see that taking something without saying anything or paying for it is wrong and we call that stealing. When calling it what it is “stealing”, we know that it is illegal despite the details we would try to rationalize it with. The Bible calls that a seared conscious (1 Timothy 4:2).

Lets see what the Bible says about thieves:

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Now, you may say that once we “get saved” then everything is covered from beginning to end, however I would like to share a couple of verses with you regarding that.

Hebrews 10:26-27 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

You may then wonder about the Bible saying that all who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved. Well, lets look at those verses in the right context as they are shared in the scriptures.

Romans 10:12-13 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

As you can see, this verse is talking about both Jews and Gentiles can be saved rather than just the Jews or just the Gentiles and not just in general regarding salvation.

Well, here is another verse some may share but lets keep it in the right context as well.

Acts 2:19-21 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

As you can see in Acts, it is referring to the time of the second coming of Christ. When He comes back to the earth, things will be so much worse than anything you can imagine now, even with all that is happening today. This is not referring to the Church age.

We can see the Lord confirming this in the following verse:

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Where does this leave you? We all must walk out our conversion in Christ which is not what gets us there but what is the evidence of our sanctification through Him. Which means that one cannot be saved by Him without being changed by Him. This is possible on a death bed situation but only if they are sincere and changed within themselves by Him in that moment. For the rest of us, we must walk it out as faithful witnesses by our works or as the Bible calls them “our fruit”.

So, the next time you come to a situation that may seem like a small thing… just remember what the Word says and choose the right path that leads to salvation and eternal life and turn from the wrong path that leads to death and eternal damnation.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

A Pondering Thought

Posted by truthoughts on January 11, 2011

Here are just some thoughts to ponder on…

Many believe the Psalms are prophetic to the Gregorian years from the 20th century onward. If you study each Psalm, you will be able to line it up with the corresponding year from 1900 onward. You can do the research when you have time.

Based upon that belief, the following is quite interesting in light of the days we are in. Be encouraged.

One thing to keep in mind is that we understand that our “redemption” is the rapture of the Church to be with the Lord forever more.

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your REDEMPTION draweth nigh.

Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of REDEMPTION.

When does this happen???

Psalm 111:9 He sent REDEMPTION unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.

Now, we know that the tribulation period lasts 7 years… so…. if this truly be the case that the Psalms line up prophetically with the Gregorian years as all the previous ones seem to indicate, that would mean that 7 Psalms after would line up with the Lord’s 2nd coming, right? So, if Psalm 111 corresponding to 2011 is the rapture year, then Psalm 118 corresponding to 2018 would be the 2nd coming. Lets see…

Matthew 23:39 For I say unto you, ye shall not see Me henceforth, till ye shall say, BLESSED IS HE THAT COMETH IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.

When does this happen???

Psalm 118:26 BLESSED BE HE THAT COMETH IN THE NAME OF THE LORD: we have blessed You out of the house of the Lord.

We will soon see how it all lines up as it plays out… but in the meantime, while we are still here… I hope this will encourage you as you continue to keep looking up.

A Lasting Witness

Posted by truthoughts on December 6, 2010

A good friend of mine wrote a post on his site titled ”
OPERATION Midnight Hour” that I would like to share with you.

In his post, you will see some very practical ideas in regards to what believers can do to share the prophecies that are still to come after the Rapture of the Church.

Now, we know that in 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 it reads “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

By this we know that those who outright rejected the Truth of the gospel will probably not turn to Christ through repentance during the tribulation… in fact, the Word is clear that through the judgments they will harden their hearts toward God and not repent of their deeds.

Revelation 9:20-21 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

Revelation 16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

However, we also know that some during the tribulation will witness and make it into heaven but not without giving up their lives for the testimony of Christ.

Daniel 11:32-35 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

We know that before the end comes, the gospel must be preached to all the earth.

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

We also know that during the tribulation period, this is done by an angel and the only reason it would need to be done that way is because it was not completed by people and the time is too short to wait.

Revelation 14:6-7 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

So, regardless of the category or title tribulation saints may be called into, they will exist, they will give their lives for their testimony of Christ and they will make it to heaven because of that.

Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

So, leave a lasting witness for those who are left. Our time is short, lets not waste it. If the Lord uses your efforts, your rewards will be great. If He chooses to destroy those efforts in His judgment, your reward is still great because you were a faithful servant who did your best to provide a good and lasting witness to any who would hear.

Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King. Keep looking up my friends, He is coming.

Pre-Trib Rapture October 8, 2010

Posted by truthoughts on September 29, 2010


Ok, I know what you are thinking right now just by reading the title. Well, before you jump to conclusions… read through this post first and then see where you are at.

My husband and I worked on a spread sheet yesterday (included at bottom of post) based upon the day counts given in the book of Daniel and other scriptures as you will see below as well as researching some other information given by other people.

I know this may be a bit long of a post but hang in there a bit because it is quite fascinating. I will begin with the bases that I shared with a dear friend of mine. Here is what I shared with her.

Bradley and I started working on something based upon others research regarding the tribulation being from 2010-2017. We know that the Lord will come back on Yom Kippur 2017 based upon a few things…

1st – Yom Kippur is the Day of Atonement / Judgment and it is a shadow of His second coming. (Rosh Hashanah is a shadow of the resurrection / rapture and Sukkot *Tabernacles* is a shadow of the Millennial reign of Christ on earth).

2nd – 2017 is both a Sabbatical year as well as a Jubilee year when the Lord brings liberty and everything begins again new.

3rd – Yom Kippur is the day that the Jubilee is declared and begins.

Now, based upon the signs we see all around us, we know it is this generation that all prophecy will be fulfilled in. So, knowing that and the fact that a Jubilee is every 50 years, it must be this one. This being the case, we know the tribulation lasts for 7 years so we can count backwards from Yom Kippur 2017 which is September 30, 2017 using the day counts given in Daniel and it brings us to October 8, 2010.

The Hebrew year consists of 360 days as opposed to our 365 days due to the lunar calendar. Every 2 to 3 years they have a leap year which adds one extra 30 day month. This month is called Adar 1. When we take note that in the day counts given in Daniel, we see that the last half from the abomination in the temple there are 1290 days as opposed to the 1260 days for 3.5 years according to their 360 day year. This means that during that last 3.5 years is the Leap Year.

According to some, 2010 is the 13th year in the 19 year cycle. The Leap Years are in 19 year cycles and then begin again. Well, the 13th year is a Leap Year which means the calendar for the feasts is off by 1 month. That would mean that Rosh Hashanah would be in October rather then September as we all thought.

So, remember how I said that if you use the Daniel day counts to count backwards from Yom Kippur 2017 then you come to October 8, 2010? Well, guess when the Biblical New Moon is in October which tells us when Rosh Hashanah would be??? You guessed it! October 8, 2010.

Now, because of the time zones, and the fact that the Hebrew day begins at sunset the day before hand, etc. it could be October 7th or 8th depending on where you are. We only have just over 1 week left.

Here is another interesting bit of info for you. We know when the abomination happens based on the day counts in Daniel because it says from that point forward is 1290 days, etc. Well, if we use the same information beginning from Yom Kippur 2017 (Sept. 30, 2017) and count backwards again, it brings us to March 20, 2014.

The significance of that is if you remember how the Lord told the Jews to pray that their flight be not in winter or on the Sabbath day? Well, March 20, 2014 is the 1st day of Spring which means the day before was winter. Guess what else? It falls on a Thursday which is the day before the Hebrew Sabbath. This is not a coincidence. The Lord is completely accurate in EVERY detail.

Ok, so that was what I shared with her. I also sent her a copy of the spread sheet and I will attempt to share that here but if it doesn’t work out that way… all you have to do is open up an excel spread sheet and do the following:

1. In the first cell/column enter a number 1 and drag that down till you get to the number 2535… you will understand in a moment why that number.

2. In the next column from the top beside the number 1, type the date October 8, 2010 and drag that down as you did with the number 1. It should fill in the dates all the way till you get to the last one with the number 2535.

3. Next, highlight the cell for the following numbers in the first column:
360
720
1080
1440
1800
2160
2520

4. Next to those highlighted numbers, in the next available cell/column type so that it will look similar to this:

360 – End of 1st Year
720 – End of 2nd Year
1080 – End of 3rd Year
1440 – End of 4th Year
1800 – End of 5th Year
2160 – End of 6th Year
2520 – End of 7th Year

These are the years of the tribulation.

5. Now, scroll to the number 1260 and color that cell a different color. This is the mid-point of the tribulation. Next to that type the abomination of desolation.

6. From lines 2520 to 2550 accounts for the Leap Year according to the Hebrew calendar of 30 days.

7. From lines 2551 to 2595 relates to Daniel 12:12. I am not sure of the significance of this date but the Bible says it is significant. Your thoughts are welcome on this.

It is quite interesting how it all lines up. We shall see soon enough. Blessings. Labor while there is time because the call may be sooner then most think.
