Whose Book Are You Reading?

For several years now I have watched and heard some of the most demonic, bizarre, sensual, earthly and new-age philosophies seep gradually into MANY  mainstream christian churches of the world. European countries; Australia and New Zealand; and the largest churches in North America; especially the USA.  I could write for weeks/months about the many different worldly ‘pinches of leaven’ mixed with the True Gospel I’ve read/seen from what I thought were solid Godly organizations.  I’m seeing and hearing more and more everyday in Contemporary Gospel music as well.   Could this be the great falling away written in 2 Thessalonians 2?   I ask this because why would anyone who claims the name of Christ, want to  add to or take anything from the Word of God– the Holy Scriptures.  The LORD God gave many admonitions throughout the Bible about adding to or taking away from HIS Holy Word:  Deuteronomy 4:2; 12:32 — Gal. 3:15 — Matt. 5:18-19 — Rev. 22:18.  These are just a few of the many.
Three reasons I discovered for “changing” the True Gospel according to the LORD God’s Holy Word!
  •  it make the makes the Gospel more pleasing to the hearer
  •  it’s politically correct and morally easier to accept 
  •  it stirs human feelings and emotions, making people feel good and believe “it is ALL about me” after all                                              
TRUE GOSPELThe loving gift of redemption the Creator of everything visible and invisible, the LORD God Almighty gave to us; a sinful, selfish, cold-hearted, lust-filled mankind; came through the shed blood of His only Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  He’s shared His character with us through His breathed out Holy Word.  Then filling the redeemed with the Holy Spirit.  I so desire to share this message with anyone who will listen or read.  I prayed last night, before getting into bed, and asked our Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus to show me from His Word how He would have to share the glorious True Gospel with others.
THE CHOICE IS YOURS

The Living Water and The Bread of Life = Pure Truth of the HOLY WORD

Waste treated bottled water and Corn Beef on moldy rye = The lies/deceit/heresy of the world’s new Christianity and it’s leaders who would rather give you philosophies, new age thinking, or the God is love message all the time

This morning, when I woke up, a verse came to mind.  “now unto Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present to faultless before the Throne of Glory, to our Only Wise God and Savior be glory and majesty, dominion and power both now and  forever and ever.  Amen.” (Jude 1:24-25)  Now I know it’s not verbatim from the Bible so some of you may pooh-pooh this; but, it was not extra biblical revelation stuff or a profound prophetic event, it was simply the answer to my prayer.  As I write this I’m smiling because the heretics, apostates, evil, sneaky, slimy, glittery, pleasant-sounding words that are “lies from the deceiver himself”  can not— I repeat CAN NOT   draw a blood bought adopted child of the One True G-D away from our Father and Lord Jesus!!
My sincere desire is that all the brethren of the True Church,  the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ is:  To hold to the only true standard of teaching: the Holy Bible
not a watered down version, not a twisted version, not a verse out of context version;  all these with even a pinch of leaven added to “spoil/rot
” the Holy Scriptures.   ♥Streim

 

 

 

135.8 Degrees Below Zero

USA Today — December 11, 2013 report

There’s cold, and then there’s Antarctica cold.  How does a frosty reading of 135.8 degrees below zero sound? Based on remote satellite measurements, scientists recently recorded that temperature at a desolate ice plateau in East Antarctica. It was the lowest temperature ever recorded on Earth, though it may not get that recognition in the official record book.  A NASA satellite measured that temperature in August 2010; on July 31 of this year, another bone-chilling temperature of -135.3 degrees was recorded.

James 1: 2-6  “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,  knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.  But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.  If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.  But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”

Are you in the middle of a cold, frozen tribulation period in your life?  Or as my youngest daughter told me last night, a huge valley full of trials.  Then, thank your Heavenly Father through the Lord Jesus for the divine magnificent love as He continually prepares us to do His work.  So, worship Him with your life until He receives us into “His Eternal Glory”.  Sending you prayers and blessings in spite of a tribulation of deep freeze.  🙂  ♥Streim

Contending for the Faith

 For several years now I have watched and heard some of the most demonic, sensual and earthly thinking ( James 3:15) and philosophies seep gradually into many  christian(?) churches in the so-called civilized countries of the world.  Large parts of Europe, Australia, New Zealand– but mainly here in the USA.  I could write for weeks/months about the many different worldly ‘pinches of leaven’ mixed with the True Gospel.  Why would anyone add hypocrisy  to the truth?   Because it’s more pleasing to the flesh that way , politically correct and touches the feelings of the heart.   Not a good thing for the desperately wicked heart of the natural man.   I’ve written about this topic in different ways since I started blogging.  I devour the Word.  It is so amazing that God Almighty, Creator of ALL things,  gave us desperately sinful mankind; redemption through the shed blood of His only Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  And He’s shared His character to us through His breathed out 100% Holy Word.  And given us the Holy Spirit to discern the Word, if we truly desire His wisdom and ask  faith. (James 3:17).  I just finished a month-long personal study of James.  WOW!!  Our glorious Father reproved, corrected and instructed me everyday.

As I prayed last night,  just before settling in to rest my body, I asked our Father in the name of Jesus to please  help me/ show me ; how/ where to share His amazing Glory that is found in His Word.  In the middle of the night, I woke up completely and recited a verse of Scripture, then went back to sleep.  Yes I was fully awake as I spoke “now unto Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present to faultless before the Throne of Glory, to our Only Wise God and Savior be glory and majesty, dominion and power both now and  forever and ever.  Amen.” 

Immediately when I woke up this morning, I definitely remembered it.  I know it’s not verbatim for any translation I use so some of you may pooh-pooh this; but, it was not extra biblical revelation stuff or a profound prophetic event, it was simply the answer to my prayer.  As I write this I’m smiling because the heretics, apostates, evil, sneaky, slimy, glittery, pleasant-sounding words that are “lies from the Deceiver himself”  can not— I repeat CAN NOT   draw us away from our Father and Lord Jesus, because we are promised:

Jude 24-25  Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.

So, it’s on you.  What do you prefer? 

The Living Water or sparkling waste-treated bottled water?  The Bread of Life or ‘corn beef on rye’?

Blessings to my family in Christ Jesus our Lord.  ♥Streim
