My sheep know My Voice - and OBEY Me.

This article by Tozer should be read and reread over,
to be certain of grasping what the Lord wants us to understand clearly.

I often see a parent telling their children to mind and let it go at that.
Instead of following through with their orders, they let the child do what they wanted to,
while the parent go to their tasks.  The idea is to finish your job completely and correctly.
There are a few that do believe in the importance of OBEDIENCE, but far too few.

OBEDIENCE, a Neglected Doctrine

By A. W. Tozer

There is what William James called a certain blindness in human beings that prevents us from seeing what we do not want to see. This, along with the direct work of the devil himself, may account for the fact that the doctrine of obedience is so largely neglected in modern religious circles.

That God expects us to be "obedient children" is admitted, of course, but it is seldom stressed sufficiently to get action.  Many people seem to feel that our obligation to obey has been discharged by the act of believing on Jesus Christ at the beginning of our Christian lives.

We should remember that the will is the seat of true religion in the soul.
Nothing genuine has been done in a man or woman's life until his or her will has been surrendered in active obedience. It was disobedience that brought about the ruin of the race. It is the "obedience of faith" that brings us back again into divine favor.

A world of confusion and disappointment results from trying to believe without obeying. This puts us in the position of a bird trying to fly with one wing folded.  We merely flap in a circle and seek to cheer our hearts with the hope that the whirling ball of feathers is proof that a revival is under way.  A good deal of praying at our camp meeting altars has the identical effect of a good cry.  It releases pent-up emotions and relaxes tense nerves.  The smile that follows is accepted by the eager helpers as evidence that a deep spiritual work has been done. This can be for some people a tragic error, resulting in permanent injury and loss to the spiritual life.

A mere passive surrender may be no surrender at all.  Any real submission to the will of God must include willingness to take orders from Him from that time on. When the heart is irrevocably committed to receiving and obeying orders from the Lord Himself, a specific work has been done, but not until then.

We are not likely to see among us any remarkable transformations of individuals or churches until the Lord's ministers again give to obedience the place of prominence it occupies in the Scriptures.

Psalm 23  *  Matthew 25

A prophetic word for the church today, which came after reading the book,
A shepherd looks at the 23rd psalm.  Also read Matthew 25

TRY NOT to think of how sheep are raised today - with dogs.
The sheep in this word are those who believe they belong to Jesus, the Shepherd.
I take this as a serious word from GOD - FOR HIS PEOPLE, HIS CHURCH!

A Cast sheep is a sheep that has rolled over onto its back and may not be able to get up without assistance, one that
has been feeding and lain down, its feet get off center where they cant touch the ground and then roll onto its back

Cast me not away from thy presence; And take not thy Holy Spirit from me.
Psalm 51

We have walked into the valley of cast sheep

The sheep have strayed from the Shepherd and have grown weary and laid down.
They have rolled over and become cast, and they cannot rise.

The sheep have wandered into the valley away from the Shepherd.  Their independance has made them tired.
They seek to lie, and in lying down and becoming comfortable they become cast.
Some are overladen with wool, the wool is caked with the dirt - the sins of this world.
The weight of the dirty wool pulls it down.  It rolls over and becomes cast.
It cannot control itself, its feet flip in the air and it becomes cast.

When a sheep becomes cast the gases of its stomach build up in its rumen and the pressure builds and
cuts off circulation.  The Blood cannot do its job, and the sheep perishs.

The Shepherd will come if the sheep cry out.  The sheep must call out - before they die.
The Shepherd will come and right them, hold them up until the pressure is disipated and strength returns to the legs.
He will pick up the sheep and carry it back to the herd.

Jesus is The Shepherd.  His sheep MUST CALL HIM when they know they are helpless.
His sheep need never become cast - if they will stay close to The Shepherd.
CALL HIM!  Before you die!

People go to church.  They do what they think is their religious duty, and they leave,
touching no one and allowing no one to touch them, not even the LORD.

By Paul Proctor -  Social justice is a perversion of the Gospel
LOOK for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site.
If you find it, run as fast as you can.
Social justice and economic justice, they are code words.

The implication here is that these “code words” signify the Church’s infiltration by two tyrannical extremes of the political spectrum:
Nazis to the right and Marxists to the left – both attempting to advance unbiblical agendas in and through the Church.

Although I hesitate to point blank call fellow Christians “Marxists” and “Nazis,”
I am acutely aware of ungodly influences from both sides of the aisle adversely affecting the Church today
and have addressed the issue on numerous occasions over the years, concluding a November 2000 article with the following:

 "Socialism needs two legs on which to stand; a right and a left. While appearing to be in complete opposition to one another,
they both march in the same direction.”

Glenn Beck is a Mormon.
There are more than a few things he and I would not agree on. But, he is right about social justice being a perversion of the Gospel and “progressives” being a danger to the Church. In fact, I tackled the topic of “social justice” in three recent and consecutive articles for NewsWithViews.com.

Since social justice in the church has now made front-page headlines due to Beck’s recent comments, I thought it prudent to revisit the issue again from a Biblical perspective and point out a couple of the things that are conspicuously absent from all of the heated rhetoric and media coverage.

ABC News’ story on the controversy noted what appears to be a little backpedaling and damage control from one of Glenn Beck’s producers:

   Stu Burguiere, executive producer at "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," sought to clarify Beck's comments today.

   "Like most Americans, Glenn strongly supports and believes in 'social justice' when it is defined as 'good Christian charity,'" he said. "Glenn strongly opposes when Rev. Wright and other leaders use 'social justice' as a euphemism for their real intention -- redistribution of wealth."

But you see, in my estimation, it is the contrived and duplicitous definition of “social justice” that is causing all the confusion.

Social justice is not Christian charity

You will find the word “justice” in scripture, as you will the word “gospel” – but you won’t find the word “social” in front of either of them because “social justice,” like the “social gospel,” is the wily work of men, not the Will and Word of God. Jesus Christ did not suffer and die on a cross so we could repair, remodel and rehabilitate a wicked world for Him to rule over, but instead to redeem us from it for a “kingdom not of this world.”

If someone doesn’t speak up and point this out, the issue will be forever confusing, controversial and divisive and the Church will continue to be swayed off course by those with political ambitions.

Scriptures containing the words “justice,” “justly,” and “judgment” that progressives handily quote to try and validate “social justice” as a Christian concept and mandate for the Church are predominately from the Old Testament, which is ironic considering progressives by and large prefer to dismiss or discount much of the OT and its so called “legalism” because it inconveniently clashes with their no-absolutes and no-authority philosophies, theologies and lifestyles. Frankly, it is God’s justice and judgments throughout the Old Testament that confound and offend progressives the most about the Bible resulting in the sleazy greasy grace they preach and practice as “Christianity.”

But, the term “social justice” puts global change agents in the driver’s seat down at the church house allowing them, through carefully placed operatives, endless opportunities to enable, justify and even promote, via the humanist mantra of “tolerance, diversity and unity,” any number of unbiblical behaviors, theories, religions and causes from promoting promiscuity, to homosexuality, to syncretism, to abortion rights, to euthanasia, to birth control, to stem cell research, to Darwinism, to faith-based initiatives, to “no child left behind,” to global warming, to you name it – which fits in perfectly with the United Nation’s plan for a one-world government, one world economy and one world religion.

The New Testament scriptures most often cited by progressives to support “social justice” are not about justice at all, but about charity. Even so, they use the words “justice” and “charity” as if they were synonymous, and in doing so, morph and merge social/political issues and programs into moral/religious issues and programs while steering the Church’s focus and attention away from the spiritual and eternal to the more carnal and worldly.

It has also been my observation that embracing “social justice,” more often than not, shifts the emphasis from repentance and faith in Jesus Christ to more earthly endeavors like environment, empowerment, employment, entitlements, equality and esteem-building programs promoted by global elites to benefit or punish selected people groups as needed for its “sustainable development” – an agenda more in keeping with that of a community organizer than a follower of Christ.

Justice is about righting a wrong, defending the innocent and punishing the guilty. It is a commendable work but it is not Christian charity.

Charity is about generously and sacrifically helping, serving and providing for someone in need. The Good Samaritan did not stop to exercise “social justice” when he found the man wounded and robbed by thieves along the road in Jesus’ parable as recorded in Luke 10:30-37. He demonstrated compassion toward the victim of a crime, not because he was socially, ethnically or financially disadvantaged, but because he was simply a “neighbor” in need.

Furthermore, the Good Samaritan didn’t go after the thieves to recover the man’s belongings, avenge his abuse, have them arrested and start a traveler’s protection and possessions recovery program at the local synagogue because that’s not what Jesus was teaching His followers in the parable to do – nor was it the mission of His coming.

If you steal someone’s money, it is “justice” that sees it returned to its rightful owner and/or has you punished – not “charity.” Charity has empathy for those in need and shares with them, cares for them, comforts them, encourages them, prays for them and provides for them as a divine demonstration of God’s love, compassion and generosity. In doing so, we bless others as God has blessed us in our time of need. Christian charity is a picture of the Gospel and God’s grace toward the spiritual poverty and desperation of a lost soul.

This is the age of grace, my friends, not the age of justice.

If anyone wanted and needed “social justice” during Jesus’ earthly ministry, it was the Samaritans, as revealed by Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well, who told Him: “…the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.” But, Jesus didn’t offer her social justice – He offered her “living water” which had nothing to do with her social status, rights or economic condition.

But, if you synthesize the two words “justice” and “charity” in Hegelian Dialectic fashion, as “progressives” in the church have so shrewdly done, you end up with a hybrid gospel that does not demonstrate the love, grace, mercy and generosity of God at all, but a government-approved, politically-correct, humanistic religion called "collectivism" that glorifies the brotherhood of man through “good works” for the benefit and advancement of an earthly kingdom instead of glorifying God through His work on the cross of Christ for a heavenly kingdom.

Christians need to be very careful about setting aside the Gospel to pursue “social justice.” Jesus took our justice on Calvary’s cross that we might receive and reflect God’s grace and forgiveness.

Is it social justice the Lord is calling us to or Christian charity?

You see, Jesus told another parable in Matthew 18 about a king whose servant owed him ten thousand talents. When the servant couldn’t pay, the king ordered him and his family sold to make restitution. When the servant fell at the king’s feet and begged for patience, the king had compassion on him and forgave the debt.

That same servant then found a fellow servant who owed him a hundred pence and demanded payment. When the fellow servant fell at his feet and asked for patience, the king’s servant would have none of it and had his fellow servant thrown in prison. When the king found out that his servant did not show the same compassion and pity toward his fellow servant, the king had his servant thrown in prison as well until he could pay back all that he owed.

Charity moved the king to forgive his servant’s debt.
Justice compelled the king to later throw that uncharitable servant into prison.

So, what are we to learn from Jesus’ parables – social justice or Christian charity?

Mormonism is Satanism, NOT christian

CBN - UK's war on Christianity - VIDEO

Just a few notes:

1) People are getting fired from their jobs in the UK just b/c they either refuse to take a homosexual sensitivity class or merely tell a gay person the errors of their ways

2) Tony Blair was responsible for alot of these gay rights policies et al, and Obama's hate crimes bill could follow America in the same way the UK is going now

3) Islam is growing at a rapid pace in the UK

4) BBC hired a Muslim to run their religious media programs - they made one movie over violent Christians killing Muslims

ISLAM means submit - to Islam - to satan

Islam has conquored the UK entirely.
Islam had conquored the USA also,
then we called President Donald Trump  Very Happy

We had a Muslim in power in the whitehouse for 8 years.
March 22, 2010  he made America an Islamic nation but called it ObamaCare.

Christian Persecution Growing in Amerika

What the bible predicts for the End Times has already begun.
Life will never be the same again.  Its changing faster than people can keep up - for the worse.
Yet most remain in dangerous denial.

Dont count on November elections to help us.

Attacks against Christian Flag here in the USA

In the sidebar is a video and in it a lady said... "it is time to defend our right to be a Christian" AMEN!!!!
it is about the right to be Christian. She is fighting for the right to be Christian, a right we all are giving up without a fight. It is not about the flag but the attack against our Christian faith.

I do NOT pledge allegiance to the flag anymore.  I used to.
The LORD convicted me NOT to pledge my allegiance to any but Him.
Patriotism is misplaced and closer to idolatry.

Southern Baptist leader on yoga, Not Christianity

2 Corinthians 6
14  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

6  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

1 Cor 10:21  
Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils:
ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.


October  7,  2010     LOUISVILLE, Kentucky

A Southern Baptist leader who is calling for Christians to avoid yoga and its spiritual attachments is getting plenty of pushback from enthusiasts who defend the ancient practice.
Southern Baptist Seminary President Albert Mohler says the stretching and meditative discipline derived from Eastern religions is not a Christian pathway to God.

Mohler said he objects to "the idea that the body is a vehicle for reaching consciousness with the divine."

"That's just not Christianity," Mohler told The Associated Press.

Mohler said feedback has come through e-mail and comments on blogs and other websites since he wrote an essay to address questions about yoga he has heard for years.
"I'm really surprised by the depth of the commitment to yoga found on the part of many who identify as Christians," Mohler said.

Yoga fans say their numbers have been growing in the U.S. A 2008 study by the Yoga Journal put the number at 15.8 million, or nearly 7 percent of adults.
About 6.7 percent of American adults are Southern Baptists, according to a 2007 survey by the Pew Research Center Forum on Religion & Public Life.

Mohler argued in his online essay last month that Christians who practice yoga "must either deny the reality of what yoga represents or fail to see the contradictions between their Christian commitments and their embrace of yoga."

He said his view is "not an eccentric Christian position."

Other Christian leaders have said practicing yoga is incompatible with the teachings of Jesus. Pat Robertson has called the chanting and other spiritual components that go along with yoga "really spooky."
California megachurch pastor John MacArthur called yoga a "false religion." Muslim clerics have banned Muslims from practicing yoga in Egypt, Malaysia and Indonesia, citing similar concerns.

Yoga proponents say the wide-ranging discipline, which originated in India, offers physical and mental healing through stretching poses and concentration.
"Lots of people come to yoga because they are often in chronic pain. Others come because they think it's a nice workout," said Allison Terracio, who runs the Infinite Bliss studio in Louisville.

And some yoga studios have made the techniques more palatable for Christians by removing the chanting and associations to eastern religions, namely Hinduism and its multiple deities.

Stephanie Dillon, who has injected Christian themes into her studio in Louisville, said yoga brought her closer to her Christian faith, which had faded after college and service in the Army.
"What I found is that it opened my spirit, it renewed my spirituality," Dillon said. "That happened first and then I went back to church." Dillon attends Southeast Christian Church in Louisville and says many evangelical Christians from the church attend her yoga classes.
She said she prayed on the question of whether to mix yoga and Christianity before opening her studio, PM Yoga, where she discusses her relationship with Jesus during classes.

"My objection (to Mohler's view) personally is that I feel that yoga enhances a person's spirituality," Dillon said. "I don't like to look at religion from a law standpoint but a relationship standpoint, a relationship with Jesus Christ specifically."

Mohler wrote the essay after reading "The Subtle Body," where author Stefanie Syman traces the history of yoga in America. Syman noted the growing popularity of yoga in the U.S. by pointing out that first lady Michelle Obama has added it to the festivities at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on the front lawn.

Mohler said many people have written him to say they're simply doing exercises and forgoing yoga's eastern mysticism and meditation.
"My response to that would be simple and straightforward: You're just not doing yoga," Mohler said.

U.S.-Australian refugee exchange
Jan 29, 2017  
-  Christian refugees from Manus Island and Nauru will be resettled in the United States, per agreement between US President Donald Trump and Australia Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.  Some of the refugees that the US has agreed to take from Australia are Christians, some from the Middle East.  They have been vetted by Australia already, and the United States will vet them again as a further protection.

Very Happy

DO NOT pray to ANYONE but Jesus!  
There is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all.
1 Timothy 2:5

New Christian Left Is Twisting the Gospel
Mar 23, 2017  
-  If you think killing babies and same sex lust is OK, you disagree with God.  Phony preachers use words like choice, coexist, tolerate - Jesus Christ used - SIN.  We are to care enuf about souls to warn them their path leads to hell - not say - we dont care what they do its their choice.  There is an expanding gulf between biblical Christian teachings and what the fake churchs preach today.

The true Gospel IS NOT filled with compromise.
There is no social gospel, that is false!
In fact I suspect that is the Revelation 6 white horse - phony.
The term - evangelical - does NOT mean CHRISTIAN.
I re-wrote this article

Is gay OK?


Most only think they are christian but have never been saved from hell - MOST

Thank you, I will read it later.

Yeah, I'm starting to notice things that are just incredibly unprecedented now.
