I spent 31.4-years of my life in law enforcement in uniform. In the 90’s when we had the three-strikes your out adjudication standard (3-convictions and you receive full sentencing up to life) we had almost NOTHING to do during our shift as the 5% of the populous that offended was tucked away for a very long time.
If our legislators truly want peace in the streets, schools, communities, put these narcissistic thugs into prison and throw away the key; there is no mental health – deterrence model that will provide a significant difference in our fatherless, godless, divisive, undisciplined, perverse, atheistic, society other than strict enforcement with the surety of painful punishment.
There is a heresy flowing through the Church and the redeemed in Jesus which exclaims that the Father’s love is unconditional; if this is true, why Jesus?
Was Elohim’s love in Eden unconditional?
16 And the LORD God commanded him, “You may eat freely from every tree of the garden, 17but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; for in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die.” Genesis 2:16-17 (Berean Study Bible)
Was Elohim’s love for the Adamic and Noahic generations unconditional?
5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of mankind was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of their hearts was only evil continually. 6 So the Lord was sorry that He had made mankind on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 Then the Lord said, “I will wipe out mankind whom I have created from the face of the land; mankind, and animals as well, and crawling things, and the birds of the sky. For I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. Genesis 6:5-8 (NASB)
Was Elohim’s love for Israel’s children unconditional in the Covenant of Law?
“Now it shall be, if you diligently obey the Lord your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I am commanding you today, that the Lord your God will put you high above all the nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings will come to you and reach you if you obey the Lord your God: Deuteronomy 28:1-2 (NASB)
15 “But it shall come about, if you do not obey the Lord your God, to be careful to follow all His commandments and His statutes which I am commanding you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: Deuteronomy 28:15 (NASB)
Is Elohim’s love for mankind unconditional in the New Covenant?
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NASB)
The one who believes in Him is not judged; the one who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. John 3:18 (NASB)
But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 10:33 (NKJV)
Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also. 1 John 2:23 (NASB)
He that believeth on the Son hath eternal life; but he that obeyeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him. John 3:36 (KJV)
Conclusion of the matter?
The Father’s love, mercy, grace, covenants, have always been predicated by conditions, mandates, requirements; therefore, please stop telling the unredeemed that God’s love is unconditional as this false teaching is easily interpreted and internalized as “universal salvation”…a doctrine from Hell.
Faith-belief-trust in Jesus Christ as our Lord who died for us is the ETERNAL “condition” upon which the Father’s covenant of eternal life is predicated (John 3; Hebrews 8:12). Please don’t miss this truism or lead others in the way of a doctrine of death?
The United States Constitutional framework, the architects who designed it to be a blueprint for limited Government allowing for maximized individual freedoms fully understood the absolute necessity for the heart of the American Citizen to have been “born again” by faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and the indwelling Holy Spirit as the Arbiter of free will via the daily process of sanctification; otherwise, personal freedom would give-way to governmental tyranny defaulting to absolute authoritarianism.
For the previous 150-years, the Democrat Party of the United States has methodically whored itself to Satan via human slavery; Progressivism in public schools; incessantly flirting with Marx and Lennon in an obsession for power and control; openly displaying a hatred for Jesus Christ, prayer, Bible reading in public schools via Engel/1962 while insisting that our students internalize an atheistic-secular humanistic worldview via the Satanic teaching of Darwin – Evolution to the exclusion of Creationism; advocating for the murder of babies in the womb via Roe/73 even up to the ninth-month of gestation and beyond; advocating for sodomy via Obergefell/2015; advocating for the demonic ideology of “equity” while denying the Constitutional concept of “equality;” whoring themselves to worship what is created as opposed to our Creator via the cult of climate change.
Every ounce of the shooter’s motives in Uvalde, Texas where some 19-babies were murdered in cold blood is rooted in the demonic. Yes, I’m fully aware that the LEFT-Democrat-Progressive consider themselves far too intelligent and wise to believe that a Realm exists other than the Realm of Time but I know that our warfare in this temporary Realm of Time is the resultant of an unfathomable war raging in us and around us in the Spiritual Realm of Eternity.
Unless the Holy Spirit who is SPIRIT (John 4:24) is given dominion over the United States via an abiding faith in Jesus Christ, Uvalde, Texas and every other school shooting and murder, suffering, abuse, will exponentially increase as a result of Democrat Party policies combined with the impotency of the Christian Church and conservatives to stand and fight these hordes of Democrat demons.
God is not mocked, America will die in apostasy and our posterity will continue to suffer horrifically as long as the Democrat Party and its demonically rooted ideology of death is allowed to continue. God the Father is a Gentleman, He will not impose Himself where He is not welcomed; America has given the Father the boot in our disobedience and America is reaping what She has sown through our youth…God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7-8; Deuteronomy 28:4-46).
Healing – Restoration – Peace with God?
The first-step in bringing healing to America is to humble ourselves before the Father and acknowledge our complete dependence upon Him, the Son, the Spirit, for our peace and longevity (2 Chronicles 7:14).
The second-step in bring peace to the United States is the dismantling of the demonically led Democrat Party, its entire leadership, and a restricting of the Party’s ideological worldview comporting to something that is at least sustainable, morally-ethically, spiritually.
Third, repeal the Mental Health Act of 1963 which inadvertently shuttered state-run insane asylums; this act alone would intern at least one-third of Democrat Party constituents thereby making its demonic influence in society somewhat manageable.
Forth, repeal Roe v. Wade (1973) and remove federal funding for States that advocate the murder of God’s children. Roe, abortion, is the #1-cause of God’s anger toward the American people.
Fifth, repeal Obergefell v. Hodges (2015) and demonstrate to our Creator that we ally with and agree to abide by His Covenant of Marriage.
Sixth, remove Darwin i.e. Atheism from the classroom and teach our children the benefits of the Creation Narrative and the necessity for Jesus as Lord in their life; repeal Engel v. Vitale (1962) and re-institute Christian prayer in School and NOT Islam or Judaism but Christianity – an abiding faith in Jesus as Lord.
There is a law that has been relevant as an arbiter of free will from the creation of the angels forward (Romans 2:14-15) and the Holy Spirit refers to it as the Law of Conscience and man defines it as the moral law or natural law. This law judged Satan of covetousness; this same law judged the Adamic and Noahic generations of defilement where all but eight were destroyed by water (Romans 1:18-32) thousands of years before Sinai. It is the Law of Conscience that provided a foundation for the Code of Hammurabi and the Decalogue given at Sinai.
The Law of Conscience was infused into humanity by Elohim as a bulwark against unrestrained narcissism that would inevitably lead to human extinction.
It is the Law of Conscience written upon the heart of mankind from “The Beginning” that is employed by the indwelling Holy Spirit during the process of sanctification where the conscience is used by the Spirit to methodically guide the redeemed in holiness and purity as He prepares them for service in the New Jerusalem (Ephesians 1:13-14; Galatians 5:16).
Elohim infused this Law of Conscience into the human genome on the 6th-Day as He created human kind in His spiritual image and subsequently imparted certain communicable attributes for eschatological and relationship purposes (Genesis 1:26-28) and it is the Law of Conscience that will be used at the Judgment of the Condemned (Rev 20:10-15) to judge and adjudicate the sin of humanity and it is this same Law of Conscience that will be relevant in the New Jerusalem where free will remains extant by necessity.
Are Christians and Jews supposed to unite against Islam?
The faithful in Elohim’s Kingdom are supposed to be proselytizing the World with the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28) for there is no other Name given among mankind that we can be saved from death in Hell (Acts 4:12); therefore, the Jew is not our brother in Christianity as they reject Yeshua and the Gospel i.e. the New Covenant and Islam is a demonic religion initiated by a 7th-Century murdering demon-possessed pedophile named Muhammad and Islam’s Allah is Satan masquerading as an angel of light via the Arabic Moon god (2 Corinthians 11:14); therefore, the Christian does NOT have a brother in Judaism or Islam; therefore, the Christian’s only Advocate in this life constrained by Time is the indwelling Holy Spirit and understand outside the faithful in Jesus, the Church and the Spirit, you are on your own; therefore, KNOW what you believe and why you believe it and be ready to fight for the Kingdom even if it means death of your body in Time.
The faithful in Jesus will endure as this World, dying in Satan’s filth, becomes exponentially hostile to Christianity and the Christian; and remember this, NOT everyone who names the Name of Jesus Christ as Lord is your brother as there exists a plethora of sects, cults, religions, who blaspheme the Gospel of Grace and the Name of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ. Know your enemy!
Will ignorance of Jesus’ reality mitigate one’s culpability for sin?
22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 The one who hates Me hates My Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated Me and My Father as well. 25 But this has happened so that the word that is written in their Law will be fulfilled: ‘They hated Me for no reason.’ John 15:22-25 (NASB)
Had Jesus not confronted them personally, their sin of “unbelief” would have been mitigated by ignorance for where there is no knowledge there is no sin (Romans 4:15; 5:13; 1 Timothy 1:13) but since Jesus personally confronted them and they observed with their eyes and heard with their ears, they were culpable.
This does not suggest that one who does not see or hear Jesus is immune from culpability for unbelief as Jesus is speaking in specifics here…a unique scenario…but every man and woman having attained an age of reason sufficient to discern good and evil is culpable for their sin via the moral law infused within them at conception (Romans 5:12; Romans 2:14-15) and unless Jesus is their Messiah by faith to mediate that sin via covenant promise (Hebrews 8:12), they will die in sin and die the “second death” in Hell (John 8:12; Acts 4:12).
Jesus also taught in parables so that those who possessed a heart willing to believe would understand the eternal import of Messiah’s words while those who would reject Messiah did not understand (Matthew 13:10-13) and this was done out of compassion for everyone who stands in the Judgment of the Condemned (Revelation 20:11-15) will face culpability in accordance with, commensurate with and measured-out by knowledge…not all condemned will suffer equally in Hell…. an irrational atheist will not suffer to the degree of a Hitler or a Stalin…the Son will met-out punishment with justice and fairness for all who have rejected Him as Lord and Mediator for their sin.
It is written,
“5 But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, 6 who will repay each person according to his deeds: 7 to those who by perseverance in doing good seek glory, honor, and immortality, He will give eternal life; 8 but to those who are self-serving and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, He will give wrath and indignation. 9 There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of mankind who does evil, for the Jew first and also for the Greek, 10 but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who does what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 11 For there is no partiality with God.” Romans 2:5-11 (NASB).
Adam-Eve-a Sabbath-a Serpent-A Tree-Sin-A Curse-A Son-Blood-Animal Skins-A Flood-Death-Law-Suffering-a Cross-a Covenant…what is going on in the Bible and why?
1) The subject of Adam’s disobedience in Eden is not what He ate but what He did; that is, rejecting the sovereignty, authority, of Elohim for the sake of narcissism…his own perceived pleasures. This very same volitional paradox exists in the life of every human being from Adam forward.
2) Though the Holy Spirit uses the “serpent” to form a word picture concerning the attributes of Satan in Eden, Eve did not observe a “snake” but what Eve observed and relented to is described in detail by the Holy Spirit through the prophet Ezekiel in Chapter 28 beginning with v.11.
3) Concerning the Genesis Sabbath, the 7th-Day…The Sabbath as an edict was NEVER given anyone but Jacob’s children beginning in Exodus 16 as a sign between Israel and Yahweh…never has a Gentile been commanded to observe a Sabbath lest that Gentile was seeking inclusion into Israel’s society UNDER LAW.
Our God’s primary focus in Time is the destruction of Satan’s works (death-Hell-the grave) through the Gospel of Grace via the Son (1 John 3:8b); the entire Creation narrative is in response to Satan’s coup d’état. Everything else is fluff for fodder; that is, every other doctrine of Scripture is foundational to this one objective…destroying the works of the Devil via selfless love while maintaining volitional love with the faithful angelic creation remaining in the Kingdom as the Father is restoring peace and order to His Kingdom partially destroyed by Satan and his rebellion.
All of humanity is an active participant in this cosmic war raging around us and within us and our eternal destiny hinges upon whom we choose to serve, Elohim or His nemesis, Satan.
Concerning the Trinity, a question for the skeptic…
If we agree that our Creator is omnipotent, why is it impossible as per your theological perspective that our Creator, Elohim, lacks the ability to introduce Himself and function within the Realm of Time as three-distinct persons and personalities, each with individual will, purpose, function? Would it not have been infinitely less controversial and infinitely more understandable for Elohim to simply reveal Himself as Father God void irrefutable distinctions of personage and function?
1) The Holy Spirit, Jesus, the Father, repeatedly identify Jesus as our Creator; therefore, how could Jesus be anything or anyone less than Deity?
2) The Holy Spirit is integral with all of Elohim’s works throughout the Scriptures beginning in Genesis 1:2 and Jesus’ virgin conception to His resurrection to the establishment of the New Covenant Church are all directly attributable to the work of the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit is Guarantor of covenant relationship by faith (Ephesians 1:13-14) and the Holy Spirit is the One divinely protected from blasphemy (Luke 12:10); therefore, how can the Holy Spirit be anything or anyone less than Deity?
Modalism or Oneness simply do not align with what is written in the Scriptures and the Father, Son and Spirit are clearly identified as individuals and each have individual will and function; therefore, why is our omnipotent Creator having revealed Himself in three-distinct persons yet identifying as ONE-GOD so viciously antithetical to your perception of our Biblical God?
Does your revulsion to the doctrine of the Trinity emanate from man’s inability to fully understand our omnipotent Creator and should you reject a doctrine so clearly articulated within the Scriptures simply because man’s finite mind doesn’t fully comprehend our infinite Creator?
Why do Jews reject Yeshua as their Messiah? An example & warning to all of human kind…
Mocker laughs and claims that Jews reject Yeshua because He did not fulfill the prophecies concerning His First-Advent…why don’t Jews believe in Messiah Yeshua today?
Jesus fulfilled every Messianic Prophecy concerning His First-Advent…and He will fulfill those eschatological prophecies concerning His Second-Advent.
Jacob’s children today reject Messiah Yeshua primarily due to the Jewish Blood Curse. Please allow me to explain…
Elohim promised our Messiah as early as Genesis 3:15 through the womb of the virgin to circumvent Adam’s sin-nature and pictured Messiah’s work in the Gospel of the New Covenant as early as Genesis 3:21. Elohim sought a people group through whom He would bring forth His Messiah “to destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b); unfortunately, the Adamic and Noahic generations defiled themselves with wickedness via immorality, murder, aberrant lust (Genesis 6:5; Romans 1:18-32); therefore, Elohim destroyed all of human kind save eight as He found Noah to be sufficiently righteous to began anew.
Through Shem, the son of Noah, Elohim brought forth a people producing the Patriarch Abram or later Abraham and Elohim made covenant with Abraham promising Him that through his seed, Abraham’s seed, there would come One who would be “a blessing to every family of the Earth” (Genesis 12:3). Through the Patriarchy of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob AKA Israel, Elohim set-apart a people group through whom He would introduce His Messiah through the seed of the Tribesman Judah (a son of Israel).
Yeshua entered the Realm of Time through the Tribe of Judah and He came to the lost sheep of Israel (Matthew 15:24) in order to fulfill Elohim’s promise to Abraham; this, by proselytizing the Jewish people in the “Good News” of the Gospel of peace and grace and mercy i.e. the New Covenant and preparing the Jews for the “Great Commission” as they would bless the entire Earth with the Gospel of peace and reconciliation; unfortunately, the Jewish people rejected the New Covenant established in Messiah’s blood (Matthew 26:28); the Jewish people blasphemed their Messiah and His Spirit and falsely accused Him of blasphemy (Jesus proclaimed Himself Deity); the Jewish people, their leadership, conspired with the Roman authorities to arrest, brutally beat and ultimately suffocate to death their Messiah upon a Roman Cross while simultaneously exclaiming en mass that Messiah’s blood be upon them and their children (Matthew 27:25); therefore, the Father took the New Covenant and the promise made to Abraham and gave same to the Gentiles until the fullness of the Gentiles have entered the Kingdom (Romans 11:25).
The Jewish people were placed under the Blood Curse in their self-righteousness as their heart was hardened and their eyes veiled and their ears made deaf (Romans 11:25; 2 Corinthians 3:15)…they were and remain a stubborn and stiff-necked people (Exodus 32:9; Deuteronomy 9:13) who continue to reject their Messiah and for this reason the prophecy of Isaiah (Isaiah 10:22) and Paul the Apostle (Romans 9:27) will come to fruition as ONLY A REMNANT of Israel’s children will be saved from the “second death” in Hell due to unbelief and that remnant is primarily comprised of those proselytized by the 144,000 sanctified Jewish witnesses during the Tribulation era coming upon the Earth and also those Jews who witness Messiah’s 2nd-Advent at Mount Olivette and subsequently enter the Millennial Kingdom along with their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10).
For these reasons, Jews rejected and continue to reject Messiah as they are cursed, blinded, hardened, for their disobedience and rejection of the Son sent them to be their Messiah and Lord, forever. Elohim’s covenants with Israel have always been predicated upon obedience (Deuteronomy 28) and Israel’s children failed Elohim repeatedly; therefore, they will reap what they have sown in disobedience (Galatians 6:7-8); therefore, DO NOT follow Israel’s example but humble yourself before the Father and proclaim Jesus as YOUR Messiah who died for you and LIVE with HIM eternally (John 3; Romans 10).
A skeptic mocking the Biblical Trinity asked in jest:
Was it another God called the Father who was dwelling in another God called Jesus Christ or God called the Father who was dwelling in a man called Jesus Christ?
NO, the Father, the Son, the Spirit are One-God expressed in three-distinct Persons with individual will and purpose in the Realm of Time beginning with Genesis 1:1 where our Creator affirmatively chose to use the Name “Elohim” in “The Beginning” as a plural noun with a singular verb; then, God the Holy Spirit introduces Himself in Genesis 1:2; then, the unity of the Triune God is seen collaborating on the creation of the human genome made in their likeness and in their spiritual image as “Our” and “Us;” then, we see the Son introduced in Genesis 3:15 as our Warrior born of the virgin seed of the woman to circumvent the sin-nature of Adam (Romans 5:12) who would do battle with the Serpent, Satan – the Devil (1 John 3:8b; Ezekiel 28:11+) and be victorious; then, Elohim pictures His battle strategy by which the Son would destroy the works of the Devil via selfless love in Genesis 3:21 through the shedding of innocent blood to acquire an imputed robe of righteousness to cover the sin and shame of Adam and Eve (2 Corinthians 5:21) while Elohim rejected the works of Adam to cover his own sin by the works of human hands, self-righteousness e.g. fig leaves (Ephesians 2:8-9) – a Messianic prophecy fulfilled by Messiah Jesus 4000-years later at Golgotha on a Roman Cross with the words “It is finished” (John 19:30).
The Trinity is extant throughout the Scriptures and Jesus is Elohim, our Creator (Genesis 1; John 1; Hebrews 1; Colossians 1) and Jesus is I AM (Exodus 3:14; John 8:58; John 8:24) and if one names the Name of Jesus as Lord and denies His deity as I AM, they remain in their sin and they are therefore headed to Perdition (John 8:24).
When you reject the Trinity, you reject what the Holy Spirit has told you…this is eternal death as only Jesus our I AM could perform the act of redemption through blood atonement as the God-Man, sinless deity, perfection (John 14:6).
