WHITE OWL MEDIATHE BURNING QUESTION

I was impelled to look into development as a Christian, for my next blog. There was an incident regarding the maturity question, and I would like to share it with you. It was a shock to me, how a small number of Christians know little about Jesus and the scriptures.

The occurrence took place a couple of weeks ago, and it was a bit of learning experience for me, but not as much as Randi, (my girlfriend).

I usually go over there because she cannot leave the house, recliner or bed. Simply put, she is dying from numerous complications from lung cancer. So, I try to visit at least, once a week to get there.

This past visit, we started talking about Jesus and the Bible. We discussed the Bible and Jesus’ role. The first thing I said was that Jesus was with the Most High at creation. And she immediately went off. Randi grabbed her Bible and looked up the scripture in Gen. 1:27

“And God created man in His image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female.  (Gen 1:27 MKJV)

 

She sat back, a smug look on her face, but she did not take into consideration our years together. Hence, I started spewing facts found in the Bible. I did this only because she said she had to see it with her own eyes straight from the scriptures. Knowing that I would be able to prove it on paper from researching,

 I threw things at her like Jesus was the Creator, He was with God in the beginning, He was with God before the earth was made, Jesus was sometimes known as Jehovah, knowing I would get her to say, “you’re crazy! ““no way, “I thought you have knowledge of the scriptures Debbie.” And my favorite, “I was brought up in the Church for 30 years, was saved at an early age, I know better.” I knew I had her where I wanted her. Angry. I calmly said, “would you be willing to look at the scriptures I send you to prove what I told you? She said, “yes ma’am! you show me in the Bible, I am from Missouri, the “see it state.”

 

I couldn’t wait to get home and give her enough scriptures to wet her palate. What I didn’t know was how she would respond, but to my surprise, Randi said in a humble voice, “I guess I have to change my beliefs.” God sent me to her for the reason that she passionately wrong. She told me that Jesus was born on earth, and wasn’t with God at the beginning, he was not and nothing to do with creation, standing on Gen. 1:27.

 

My feeling was that God answered my prayers, because she was hanging around a JW too much, and started taking on some of their beliefs so I wanted her to mature in the scriptures before tackling any debate that took place between them.

I truly believe there are a great deal of Christians out there that leave the Bible on a table, (except Sundays) and think the Pastor is enough, when they probably do not have a clue what the Pastor is teaching them.

 SPIRITUAL IMMATURITY IS THE REASON THIS WHOLE CONFUSION GREW TO AN ENTIRE NEW LEVEL FOR ME. I AM TRULY BAFFLED.  SO, I STARTED ON MY RESEARCH QUEST FOR TRUTH AND COULD NOT RECONCILE ANOTHER SCRIPTURE WITH THESE. THIS IS SPEAKING TO OUR SPIRIT.

“of whom we have much to say, and hard to be explained since you are dull of hearing.  (Heb 5:11 MKJV)

 “For indeed because of the time, you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again what are the first principles of the oracles of God. And you have become in need of milk, and not of solid food.  (Heb 5:12 MKJV)

 GOD IS SAYING THAT AFTER SOME TIME HAD GONE BY, CHRISTIANS SHOULD PROGRESS FROM MILK TO MEAT.

 “For everyone partaking of milk is unskillful in the Word of Righteousness, for he is an infant.  (Heb 5:13 MKJV)

 “But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, even those who because of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.  (Heb 5:14 MKJV)

OWLS ARE EVEN THOUGHT OF AS “WISE.” 

 

 

 

THE TROUBLE IS IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT GOD IS ABOUT, HOW CAN YOU KNOW HIM AND FOLLOW HIS WAYS. WHERE IS THE HOLY SPIRIT IN YOUR LIFE?

 

 It was my website where I tried to teach unbelievers and Christians alike, how important it is to search the scriptures. Nobody knows everything, therefore there is always an epiphany

 waiting out there for them to grasp. It gives me great joy to share it. I did for three years with 3 older women who came over for the deep, deep meanings. And of course, there was questions, where we researched together using the Bible.

They are gone now, for various reasons. One moved to NY, etc.

Subsequently, I tried to talk to other dear friends, who could not be interested if God were standing in front of them. I was truly shocked and dismayed. Therefore, my blogs were hatched. This is my goal, to do it on a person to person level. I have too much to share and I am bursting with information.

This is what I ran into when I was researching this subject.

“Chapter 6 of Hebrews is the PERIL OF NOT PROGRESSING”

As I started to read this chapter, I realized there was something here I could SEE WHAT I THOUGHT WAS A DISCREPANCY. BUT THERE ARE NO CONTRADICTIONS IN THE BIBLE, RIGHT?

 “Therefore, having left the discourse of the beginning of Christ, let us go on to full growth, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,” (Heb 6:1 MKJV)

 “of the baptisms, of doctrine, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.”  (Heb 6:2 MKJV)

 “And this we will do, if God permits.”  (Heb 6:3 MKJV)

READ THE NEXT TWO SCRIPTURES CAREFULLY.

 “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit,” (Heb 6:4 MKJV)

 “and have tasted the good Word of God and the powers of the world to come,” (Heb 6:5 MKJV)

 

NOW HERE COMES THE QUANDARY. LOOK AT THE NEXT TWO SCRIPTURES. HOW CAN IT BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN SAVED CHRISTIANS FALL OUT OF GOD’S HANDS?

 

“and who have fallen away; it is impossible, I say, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify the Son of God afresh to

 themselves and put Him to an open shame.”  (Heb 6:6 MKJV)

“(For the earth which drinks in the rain that comes often upon it, and brings forth plants fit for those by whom it is dressed, receives blessing from God.”  (Heb 6:7 MKJV)

 “But that which bears thorns and briers is rejected and is a curse, whose end is to be burned.”)  (Heb 6:8 MKJV)

 “But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you and things that accompany salvation, though we speak in this way. “(Heb 6:9 MKJV)

 “For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.”  (Heb 6:10 MKJV)

 “And we desire that each one of you show the same eagerness to the full assurance of hope to the end,” (Heb 6:11 MKJV)

 “that you be not slothful, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”  (Heb 6:12 MKJV)

 

Can you guess why? I cannot find anything hidden in these scriptures that gives me a clue to the demise without redemption. This is a big deal if it can take place because we do not mature.

How can you know the difference between right and wrong, when you do not read and research the scriptures? This is dire, because, I have run into many Christian friends who frankly, “Do not give a damn!”

 Okay there is these scriptures THAT RAISES THE BURNING QUESTION:

 

“For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, (Rom 8:38 MKJV)

“nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  (Rom 8:39 MKJV)

 Then there is the ones God gives over as degenerates or reprobates.

 “examine yourselves, whether you are in the faith, prove your own selves. Do you not know your own selves, that Jesus Christ is in you, unless you are reprobates? “(2Co 13:5 MKJV)

 “But I trust that you will know that we are not reprobates.”  (2Co 13:6 MKJV)

 “But I pray to God for you not to do evil, none. And not that we may appear approved, but that you should do the good things, though we are deemed to be reprobates.”  (2Co 13:7 MKJV)

 Paul goes on to urge the Corinthians to prove-that is, to test-themselves by reminding them that unless they are reprobate, the Lord Jesus is truly and literally dwelling within them. This is the fundamental fact in a holy life. When we open our hearts, He enters, and becomes in us the Life in us.And the Light of all our seeing.

 BURNING QUESTION, “CAN GOD SEPARATE YOU?”

WE ALWAYS JUST LOOK AT ROMANS 8:28-29, BUT LOOK WHAT IT SAYS IN VS. 27:

 “And He searching the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.  (Rom 8:27 MKJV)

 READING OUR HEARTS IS THE KEY. WE HAVE FREE WILL AND ONLY

 WE CAN REMOVE OURSELVES FROM HIS LOVE.

 “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.  (Rom 8:28 MKJV)

For whom He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, for Him to be the First-born among many brothers.  (Rom 8:29 MKJV)

 “But whom He predestinated, these He also called; and whom He called, those He also justified. And whom He justified, these He also glorified.  (Rom 8:30 MKJV)

LET’S LOOK AT THESE SCRIPTURES AGAIN:

 “For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, (Rom 8:38 MKJV)

 “nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  (Rom 8:39 MKJV)

 Remember even Adam & Eve had free will, the devil too.

. PLEASE READ HEBREWS, CHAPTERS 5 & 6 AND YOU WILL FIND OUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF NOT MATURING. THE BIBLE DOES NOT CONTRADICT ITSELF. SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES!

 

Romans 8:31-39

Paul then goes on to show that the love of God is unaffected by even the most extreme changes of our condition-neither death, nor life, Rom_8:38. That it is undiverted from us by any other order of beings, whether angels, principalities, or powers. That it is universally present throughout creation. And finally, that this love is in Christ Jesus our Lord. But in order to know and experience this love, we must be united to the Lord Jesus by a living faith. Then we shall be more than conquerors, that is, we shall not only be victorious, but shall get spoil out of the very things that have hurt us.”¹

GET IT, GOT IT, GOOD, SO LET US END THIS CONTROVERSY.

 BECAUSE THERE IS NONE. IT IS SPELLED OUT BY THE VERY MAN THAT WROTE, IT WAS INSPIRED BY GOD.

 

End result: search the Bible, in order to save your spiritual life!

 ON A LAST NOTE. Something for you to think about.

 

“And He went a little further and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me. Yet not as I will, but as You will.  (Mat 26:39 MKJV)

 He answers his own question. He had seen first-hand what it was to be crucified. But because He had FREE WILL, He chose to die for us.

 “And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy.  (Mat 26:43 MKJV)

 “And He left them and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same word.  (Mat 26:44 MKJV)

 “Then He came to His disciples and said to them, Sleep on now and take your rest. Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.  (Mat 26:45 MKJV)

 “Rise, let us be going; behold, he who is betraying Me is at hand.  (Mat 26:46 MKJV)

 We, also have free will. If we turn away from Jesus, and become apostates, there will be considerable problems in store for us.

Please mature in the scriptures.
