God’s Good News For Buddhists, Mormons, Christians… – All Churchgoers!

Buddhists [and may other religions] reject the vengeful wimpy God, and the bad news [eternal hell] gospel preached at today’s fallen “Christian” Churches of Men. God has deceived these church leaders and their followers into believing traditions of men above the true good news gospel of Christ. The good news gospel of Christ is that Jesus came to save all men. All men will undergo a period of God’s judgment, where their flesh is burned away and they are prepared for salvation. A few are judged in this life, many are judged at the end of their lives at the great white throne, while others are judged in the lake of fire, but through the sacrifice of Jesus all of these are given salvation. Jesus Came To Save The World, Not Just The Elect!Pastors Are Not God’s Shepherds! Most of these folks believe in the “conventional wisdom”, suffering under the grand delusion of man’s free will, and believe in the devil doctrine of an eternal hell! Hell is Not Endless Punishment!Jesus Came To Save The World, Not Just The Elect!

The Bible warns us that translators thru the generations have corrupted its words. Jeremiah in about 600BC warn us of this:

GOD’S WORD® Translation Jer 8:8

” ‘How can you say that you are wise and that you have the LORD’s teachings? The scribes have used their pens to turn these teachings into lies.

Some might ask, this being the case how can you depend on the Bible for anything? It testifies to its own corruption! The simple answer if that God is Sovereign [in control of things] and this is all a part of God’s plan! Lord willing, he will show you this!! Let’s take a look at some surprising verses about the power and sovereignty of God.

KJV Exodus 4:11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?

The Lord here takes total responsibility for deafness, blindness, and dumbness [inability to speak]. If we think that this occurs by chance we are falsely limiting the power of God. I expect that most readers have already concluded that I’m crazy, but please read on, please humor me for a bit! Perhaps it is even more difficult to accept that the Lord is directing everyone’s steps! Take a look at these passages:

Man’s Steps Are Not His Own

YLT Proverbs 16:9 The heart of man deviseth his way, And Jehovah establisheth his step.

GWT Jeremiah 10:23 O LORD, I know that the way humans act is not under their control. Humans do not direct their steps as they walk.

KJV Prov 20:24 Man’s goings[steps] are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?

GWT Prov 21:1 The king’s heart is like streams of water. Both are under the LORD’s control. He turns them in any direction he chooses.

Ok, now you are certain that I am off my rocker! Just a bit more insanity. God even controls our words and thoughts!!

YLT Proverbs 16:1 Of man are arrangements of the heart, And from Jehovah an answer of the tongue.

ESV AMOS 4:13 For behold, he who forms the mountains and creates the wind, and declares to man what is his thought, who makes the morning darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth— the LORD, the God of hosts, is his name!

I pray that you might take some time to think and meditate on these things. Ask yourself if you could really see the difference between a world governed by Chance and the choices of men; and this “All things are of God” sovereign creation? God certainly makes it look like we choose our path -but whatif it just isn’t so??? Couldn’t the all powerful God, the one who spoke this universe into being, also be speaking to medirecting my steps as I walk?

God Warns Us That He Gave humans Wicked Hearts

YLT Jer 17:5-11

5 Thus said Jehovah: Cursed [is] the man who doth trust in man, And hath made flesh his arm [NIV – draws strength from mere flesh], And from Jehovah whose heart turneth. 6 And he hath been as a naked thing in a desert, And doth not see when good cometh, And hath inhabited parched places in a wilderness, A salt land, and not inhabited. 7 Blessed [is] the man who trusteth in Jehovah, And whose confidence hath been Jehovah. 8 And hath been as a tree planted by waters, And by a rivulet he sendeth forth his roots, And he doth not see when heat cometh, And his leaf hath been green, And in a year of dearth he is not sorrowful, Nor doth he cease from making fruit. 9 Crooked [is] the heart above all things, And it [is] incurable– who doth know it? 10 I Jehovah do search the heart, try the reins, Even to give to each according to his way, According to the fruit of his doings. 11 A partridge hatching, and not bringing forth, [Is] one making wealth, and not by right, In the midst of his days he doth forsake it, And in his latter end– he is a fool.

This verse warns us not to put our trust in men not to make flesh our arm, not to rely on, not to draw our strength from flesh. We are to draw strenght from the spirit, from God not from flesh! He treats us. according to our ways – according to our doings![vs 10],

Let’s look at Vs 9 again in a different translation.

KJV Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Men’s best efforts are filthy rags [unclean garments] to God.

YLT Isa 64:6-8

6 And we are as unclean– all of us, And as a garment passing away, all our righteous acts; And we fade as a leaf– all of us. And our iniquities as wind do take us away. 7 And there is none calling in Thy name, Stirring up himself to lay hold on Thee, For Thou hast hid Thy face from us, And thou meltest us away by our iniquities. 8 And now, O Jehovah, thou [art] our Father, We [are] the clay, and Thou our Framer, And the work of Thy hand– all of us.

Looking at vs 6 again in the KJV.

KJV Isa 64:6

6 But we are all as an unclean thing,

and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;

and we all do fade as a leaf;

and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Passages that say man can do no good on his own.

NLT Ps 53:1 – 6

For the choir director: A meditation; a psalm of David.

1 Only fools say in their hearts,

“There is no God.”

They are corrupt, and their actions are evil;

not one of them does good!

2 God looks down from heaven

on the entire human race;

he looks to see if anyone is truly wise,

if anyone seeks God.

3But no, all have turned away;

all have become corrupt.

No one does good,

not a single one!

4 Will those who do evil never learn?

They eat up my people like bread

and wouldn’t think of praying to God.

5 Terror will grip them,

terror like they have never known before.

God will scatter the bones of your enemies.

You will put them to shame, for God has rejected them.

6 Who will come from Mount Zion to rescue Israel?

When God restores his people,

Jacob will shout with joy, and Israel will rejoice.

YLT John 15:5-6

5‘I am the vine, ye the branches; he who is remaining in me, and I in him, this one doth bear much fruit,because apart from me ye are not able to do anything; 6if any one may not remain in me, he was cast forth without as the branch, and was withered, and they gather them, and cast to fire, and they are burned;

This verse declares that we are not able to do anything apart from the Lord! Most folks have a problem with this because they still think of the weak God of organized “Christianity” and do not understand what real faith is. They insist on this concept of man’s free will [really man’s will “overpowering” God]. Perhaps God will give you eyes to see that this just isn’t so! Perhaps you can get a taste of how freeing this is! Let’s look again at the verses about man’s steps:

YLT Proverbs 16:9 The heart of man deviseth his way, And Jehovah establisheth his step.

GWT Jeremiah 10:23 O LORD, I know that the way humans act is not under their control. Humans do not direct their steps as they walk.

KJV Prov 20:24 Man’s goings[steps] are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?

Combining thse passages gives us this:

Humans do not direct their steps as they walk. The way humans act is not under their control. Man’s goings[steps] are of the LORD. Jehovah establisheth his steps!!!

Men quite regularly think in ways that limit the power of God.

KJV Deu 32:39

See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

KJV Isaiah 45:5. I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 6. That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else. 7. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

KJV Amos 3:3. Can two walk together, except they be agreed? 4. Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing? 5. Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all? 6. Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it? 7. Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

This following passage helps us to see why he does this, why he makes us vein and bound in corruption – in hopes that he can deliver us out from it.

KJV Romans 8:20. For the creature [Us!] was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21. Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

He wants/hopes to deliver us from our corruption and bondage.

KJV Ezekiel 14:9 And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the Lord have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.

The Lord is now building his church with the power of his revelation, first with the sprinkling of water and later, Lord willing, with flashes of lightning! When he sprinkles us with clean water, when he chastens and scourges us we will know it!! The many righteous, those sprinkled with clean water receive the reward of the righteous! They will not yet be shown how corrupt the flesh is. They have not yet see the power and glory of Jesus, but God is beginning to reveal himself to them. The righteous are considered sons of God.

KJV Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

KJV Isaiah 26:12 Lord, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.

KJV Romans 9:15-21

15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

Dear God,

Help us to see your Glory, your power, your plan for the salvation of all! Thank you for revealing yourself to babes!!

Amen

God’s Good News For Buddhists, Mormons, Christians… – All Churchgoers!

P.S. Some further thoughts:

YLT Matt 11:25-26

25 At that time Jesus answering said, I do confess to Thee, Father, Lord of the heavens and of the earth, that thou didst hide these things from wise and understanding ones, and didst reveal them to babes. 26 Yes, Father, because so it was good pleasure before Thee.

Jesus saw God’s wisdom in revealing his truths thru his babes! Today’s seminaries, and this worldly church system, do not know the all powerful God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. These corrupt, hired hands do not teach the good news gospel of Jesus. God hides the truth from these proud self ambitious men and reveals his truth to his babes!

God’s starts revealing himself to men thru his chastening – all he scourages hastens he chooses as sons! I believe that there are two ways that men respond to this. Either we persevere in [trust, listen to, and believe in] God or we reject God and his chastening.

Many still believe that life came about from chance happenings, that life spontaneously “appeared”. This is the foundation for the arguments of evolution, but this argument is not supportable. I propose the Frankenstein theory, that man has never yet [and never will be] involved in the creation of life! The creation of life is a God thing!!

Sure we have entire specialties that remix and reconfigure the existing building blocks of life, but they have never made a successful [life producing] seed that did not come from God’s.

The underlying message to Buddhists [and other religions]: Don’t harden your heart against this all powerful God, the creator of the universe. When he chastens you, listen for his voice and trust/rely on him/believe in him! You may never grasp the real power and sovereignty of God, never the less, God has a reward in heaven for those he sprinkled with clean water, chastened without rebelling!!

YLT Rom 1:16-23

16I’m not ashamed of the Good News. It is God’s power to save everyone who believes, Jews first and Greeks as well. 17God’s approval is revealed in this Good News. This approval begins and ends with faith as Scripture says, “The person who has God’s approval will live by faith.”

18God’s anger is revealed from heaven against every ungodly and immoral thing people do as they try to suppress the truth by their immoral living. 19What can be known about God is clear to them because he has made it clear to them. 20From the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly observed in what he made. As a result, people have no excuse. 21They knew God but did not praise and thank him for being God. Instead, their thoughts were pointless, and their misguided minds were plunged into darkness. 22While claiming to be wise, they became fools. 23They exchanged the glory of the immortal God for statues that looked like mortal humans, birds, animals, and snakes.
