The Righteousness of Self

There are many frightful things in today's society. Guns and people with
guns. TV shows can be a scary thing for a parent. Commercials alone can
be considered soft porn. Driving can be extremely fearful when you
consider accidents and road rage. Maybe you have a certain phobia that
you struggle with. As a child, the zoo was a scary place for me, even
though I LOVED the zoo. I always had that lingering fear in the back of
mind, "What if the lion breaks out of its cage?". I was constantly
composing an escape route at every animal house, despite the fact I was
completely entranced by their existence. As an adult I put those fears
away...sort of :)

When I discovered the truth of my sin I was no longer deceived by it (my
departure from the living God Hebrews 4:13-14). When I took the cup of
salvation made by the blood of Christ, I was set free, and the law of
the Lord was written upon my heart. It is in this adult stage I've
developed a different kind of phobia, the righteousness of the self.

Guns and people with guns is a scary thing, but the scariest thing ever
to happen to man is his own self-righteousness. People in positions of
power entrenched in their own self-righteousness is a scary thing for
me. Christians preaching and practicing salvation by works are lost in
their own self-righteousness, and it is a scary thing to behold. I have
encountered the self-righteous unbeliever and I have been manipulated by
the self-righteous Christian. From my very personal experiences I have
concluded that there is nothing scarier than a self-righteous human.

Self-righteousness, is self explanatory. It is "righteousness" that
comes from the fallible self. Right and wrong is created on the whims
and desires of the self. That self is a law unto its self, submitting to
no one...least of all the Creator of man. Yes, it is scary. Is it any
wonder why God, who IS righteous, declared death to be the penalty of
sin? There are those who claim that an eternal hell is far too steep a
punishment for sin. To them, I say go live in country or county where
lawlessness (accountability to no one) is prevalent and then tell me our
God is an unjust God. Yes, He has been made into a scapegoat, whereby He
is accused for the sufferings happening around the globe, when the
sufferings are made at the hands of the self-righteous, who have
divorced themselves from the Creator.

Christianity fares no better. As whole they are divided, distorting the
image of God by misrepresenting the Gospel of Christ, with various
doctrines of "self-righteousness". It is a principle that a divided
house cannot stand, but a divided house presenting more than one gospel,
pushes the unbelieving society further its unbelief.

Once upon the Garden of Eden, man issued a declaration of independance,
and all hell broke loose. And as long as self-righteousness reigns on
earth, hell will continue to be loose. I thank God for Jesus Christ my
Lord who will return with "the keys of hell and death"! (Revelation
1:18) Self-righteousness IS sin's deceit! Do not be deceived into
thinking that any action of your own pleases the Lord. Only by faith can
He be pleased! Hebrews 11:6 Humble youself in the sight of God, because
without Him, you can do nothing...

" I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in
him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do
nothing." - John 15:5

Author of the Gospel

Jesus said it true, not speaking of Himself, but by the ordination and the power of God, He laid down His life for us.

Those so those would follow Him to the cross, would in turn share the beauty of what God the Father has done for us yesterday, today and forever, in doing so saving souls from an eternal hell. Unfortunately we as a Christ-professing (as opposed to confessing) society have delivered a ministry of condemnation to an unbelieving society.

Before I delve into what the Author of the Gospel portrayed as the Firstfruit of the resurrection, let me first share the words of Paul who, also is an supernatural example of the trendy term "Christ-follower".
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;
Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. -- 2 Corinthians 4:5-18

Understanding that we have been given a ministry that liberates, as opposed to a ministry that condemns, we see this liberating ministry in Christ Jesus as He spoke to the woman at the well. John 4:13-24
Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Christ's first approach to the woman was to immediately speak about "everlasting water". What is clear is that Jesus already knew the lifestyle of the woman at the well. What is AMAZING is that He does not focus, nor concern Himself of it. He continues to explain, exemplify and glorify the Father for the purpose that she may "see" God and choose God. He corrects her understanding of "worshipping" God in a physical place and explains that God is a Spirit and requires spiritual worship.

Can you imagine how liberating this woman must have felt, first upon realization that she spoke to "a prophet", secondly that this prophet who knew she had five husbands did not condemn, admonish or shame her with this information and thirdly, HE OFFERED HER "A WELL OF WATER SPRINGING UP INTO ETERNAL LIFE!"

"Is this not the Christ?" she exclaimed upon return from her visit with the Lord. Yes indeed it is the Christ! The promised Messiah of Israel! And this is His true ministry, the Gospel, the Hope and Liberty we need to proclaim unto this world in spiritual bondage. What saddens me, and, yes angers me, is that so many distort this message. So many of us focus on sins of the unbeliever. So many of us demand that they "clean up their act first and then come as they are". Too many tout their mission to "clean up" sin, blindly ignore the Gospel of Hope as Christ authored it, and ignorantly forget that our sins were taken care of by His death on the cross. We conveniently forget that the judging of hearts, characters and souls is a job reserved only for a Holy, Righteous God, who is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrew 4:12

As any Christian can read, Christ did not and does not condemn a sinner for being a sinner, no, He did not come to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:17
Is there any doubt why Christ did not focus on the woman's lifestyle, besides a mere acknowledgement? It was because He was on His way to the cross. As far as He was concerned it didn't matter, He was going to take care of it anyway! Instead, He focused on His mission, SAVING the world!!! I pray that many will minister the Gospel of our Lord that liberates. We have that power, the power of the Holy Spirit, to guide, show the way where the heavy and overburdened can lose their shackles.

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

A Fearless Blogger

I was reading some news on the Internet tonight and came across this article about a blogger from Kabul, Afghanistan, who is a, lone, independent voice in the country. He blogs his thoughts and feelings about the country in spite of threats of violence. He has been even been jailed for expressing his views, his name is Nasim Fekrat.

Here's an excerpt from his blog:

"When I was very young I used to write a bit about the world – my world and the world around me. Then, with access to new technology and the Internet, I started to learn about many new things.
Soon, I remember hearing the word ‘blog’ being used in my English class. I found the first Farsi blog service. And an old friend of mine showed me his blog. It made a big impression on me. By 2004, I was running my own satire and cartoon magazine. But it was shut down by fundamentalist Islamiists. I couldn't write using my real name anymore. For a few months, I was in trouble and had to keep moving around.
But I couldn’t stay silent. I started blogging again. During the first few weeks I received great feedback from people outside Afghanistan reading my blog. They liked it because it was difficult to find independent news from Afghanistan. I was writing in both Farsi and English, and soon many readers were visiting both my blogs. In 2005, I was the ‘Reporters Without Borders’ prize winner for the freedom of expression blog."

Here's a portion of the article that led me to find such an impressive person and blogger who blogs for freedom of expression in the face of fear.

Meet Afghanistan's Most Fearless Blogger Teaching journalists to write without fear, favor, or filter.

Nasim Fekrat. Click image to expand.Afghan blogger Nasim Fekrat

Minutes into Afghan President Hamid Karzai's speech before the Afghanistan Donor Conference in Paris, he congratulated his country on its "independent media," which, having "grown exponentially" since the ouster of the Taliban, is a harbinger of Afghanistan's imminent rise to respectable statehood. With a fresh infusion of development dollars, no doubt, Karzai could build on the thriving infrastructure, cultivate a legitimate civil society, educate girls, smoke out the extremists, and generally rid the world of its turbaned bogeymen.

Not everyone buys that. Though the telecom infrastructure in Afghanistan is growing at a pace that exposes confounding contrasts—kids download videos on mobile phones while their houses lack electricity for much of the day—the mainstream press hasn't grown up as fast. Given expanding access to eyes and minds, the national press isn't as sophisticated as it could be.

That's where Nasim Fekrat, a 25-year-old self-trained journalist and self-styled free-press crusader, comes in. Fekrat works from a small office in West Kabul, his laptop powered by a car battery that sucks up city electricity while it's on so he can work when the power is off. Fekrat founded the Association of Afghan Blog Writers and has taken on the task of recruiting bloggers from all over Afghanistan.

"I believe blogging will change things," he says. "We don't have free media in Afghanistan. We don't have independent media." As far as Fekrat is concerned, the "500 printed publications" touted in Karzai's speech is an extravagant claim, and even if it is accurate, the abundance of choices serves more than anything to saturate the market.

What's Going On In London??

A few years ago, I discovered a wonderful ministry by Zola Levitt, a Messianic Jew or in other words a Jewish Christian. I have been a regular reader of his free newsletters up until I moved two and half years ago. However, I frequent his website and occasionally catch the show. Zola Levitt is now with the Lord and his Savior. I miss reading his witty humor and supernatural answers in defending the faith and his beloved Israel. Reading the latest newsletter, August 2008, I found a disturbing comment in the "Ask Zola" section. Please read below...

-------Start------

Takeover of Britain Continues
Dear Staff,
Greetings. I receive the monthly Levitt Letter in England, where it used to but no longer arrives in an envelope. Just the other day, two American-born Christians giving out literature were arrested by Muslim police. As you know, ours is daily becoming more and more like a police state. On two accounts, I have found my Levitt Letter ripped open and tampered with, I assume by my Muslim mailman. In the last edition, you had two cartoons that could get me in trouble. In the future, can I ask you to please send it in an envelope that cannot be tampered
with? Please understand that this is not the U.S.A. and that the police are scared of Muslims here. Thanks. M. B.

Dear M.B.—
Sorry to hear of your waning civil liberties there. Perhaps it would be safer for you to read our newsletters at www.levitt.com. You’ll see them sooner that way,
and you can copy and paste articles for emailing to friends. —Mark

British police afraid of Muslims??? Muslim police in Britain??? When did that happen and why has it been allowed?!? It is for this reason I am bold, and affront in my posts. There is no room or time for flowery and sugary messages. There is no time for condemning messages of morality. It is time for fighting Faith! While we all fuss amongst each other, we do not recognize that there has been a breach in security, and has been for a long time now. While we stand divided the enemy moves in quietly and determined. And divided we still stand, ignorant, silly and prideful in our flimsy intelligence.

Yes, I'm angry! I'm angry because we fuss about the dangers of homosexuality and obsess of moral purity, when we clearly understand that is only by the power of grace we are made right in the sight of God. While we fuss about specks and spots, the camel we "swallow" is "only by Faith can we be saved". Only by Faith can we be "pure".  Yes, we all nod our heads in agreement. Herein lies the problem, we have failed to move on beyond the basic understanding of Salvation. As a result we, as vulnerable babes, are powerless to deal with the evil that moves quickly on us.

"Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.

For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil." -- Hebrews 5:11-14

"Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God," -- Hebrews 6:1

And what a damn shame it is! Yes, our shame be damned! For we have a God that we believe in, have faith in, and trust who is mighty beyond human thought. We have His Spirit, or at least access to that Spirit that can empowers the most weakest of all. We have a Christ who has overcome the world and "WHO is he that overcometh the world but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God"? 1 John 5:4-5 But divided we are, in the dark, and fussing about the "spots" on our clothing!

Let the Word be a warning to us ALL:

"For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief." 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4

And what appears to be happening in London....that day is right around the corner! It is PAST time to awake out of sleep!

Zola Levitt

I don't endorse a lot of ministries, as a matter of fact I don't endorse them at all. The only whole hearted endorsement I make is the unity of fallen man to his Savior, Christ Jesus and the Father who created us and loves us all. However I have found Zola Levitt and his ministry to be "in spirit and in truth". I strongly encourage anyone interested in prophecy, Israel and the truth to check out the ministry under the power of the Spirit, fully recognizing that no matter who seems "legit" only God can provide the answers we seek, if He should choose to provide them. May the Lord go before you all...

Clothed

They say hindsight is 20/20. For a Believer saved by grace, given to us by our Lord, Christ Jesus of Nazareth, our foresight should be 20/20.

"While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal." -- 2 Corinthians 4:18

We know when all is said and done that this time, this earth we live upon, is but a blot in the face of eternity.

"For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens" -- 2 Corinthians 5:1

The question becomes for every single one who claims to profess Christ and Him crucified...will you be clothed?

"For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked" -- 2 Corinthians 5:2-3

Truly this is a question to consider, in this day, time and society of Christian churches. Will you be clothed? Or will you be shamed with your nakedness before Christ? This question is one of grave seriousness. It affects EVERY Believer/Christian proclaiming, professing and confessing Christ, as they stand before Him, unlike the judgement of the unbeliever who outright reject Christ. Yes, this question is directed at the Church, the Body of Christ (Spiritual) and those who claim to follow the teachings (doctrine) of Christ.

"Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent." -- Revelation 3:17-19

These are the words of Christ to His Church. Obviously the word clothed is a symbolic term. Every Believer/Christian should understand the symbolism of being clothed before Him, but for the sake of clarity and understanding. Let's go over what the term "clothed" symbolizes in the Word.

When one isn't literally clothed, they are naked, exposed. The truth of of their imperfections are laid bare. That girdle that held in that voluminous tummy is gone and the truth of that midsection is revealed.

"I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels." -- Isaiah 61:10

Returning to the 2nd book of Corinthians 5:4 reiterates Isaiah 61:10:

"For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life." ("garments of salvation")

Both authors reference the desire of life eternal with Christ. Both authors express earnest joy, passion and foresight towards the day we stand before Him. Most importantly both authors express the confidence that they will BE clothed, found righteous, in His sight. Can you express that same confidence??

"Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." -- 2 Corinthians 5: 5-8

Figuratively speaking, how are we clothed with righteousness? How can do we obtain the garments of salvation?

"And he (God) brought him (Abraham) forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.

And he (Abraham) believed in the LORD; and he (God) counted it to him for righteousness". -- Genesis 15: 5-6

"Who against hope believed in hope, that he (Abraham) might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb:

He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.

Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;

But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;

Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification." -- Romans 4: 18-25

Will you be clothed? Are you a heir of Abraham by Faith? Do you "walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham" ? Romans 4:12-13 Here's the rub...good "works", church attendance, or even Bible studying isn't going to keep you from appearing naked before him. God is an examiner of hearts and He already knows what lies in yours. Hebrews 4:12 Outside of faith, He cannot be pleased.

"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." -- Hebrews 11:6

Maybe you're confused by the glut of churches and doctrines available, it is all the more reason why you should seek Him directly, seek Him earnestly, and seek Him passionately! Answers will not be found in the wisdom of man, because only the things of God can be discerned by Him. 1 Corinthians 1:13-14

Are you willing to bet an eternity upon a doctrine of traditions or religious affiliations?? I should hope not. I PRAY not.

"Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him." -- 2 Corinthians 5:9

My Slide Show

I'm currently working on a website and created a "video" to place on it. The slideshow is still a rough draft. I thought I'd post it here to see how it looks. It's very amateurish, but I would love to hear opinions on it. By the way, it's the first time I've attempted to create a "video". I'm having so much fun with it!

"Go, and Sin No More"

The following "post" is a response to a comment left on my original post of "Pro-Choice". I decided to publish the comment because it gave me an opportunity to expound further on the point of my original post. You can find the original comment at this post as well.

-------------Start of Comment------------

Once again I thank you for commenting. Normally I wouldn’t publish a comment that may start a “debate” however, I decided to respond to your comment because I wanted to expound on my point of the existence of choice.

It can very easy to get away from the “big picture” when the “pieces” of the big picture are taken out of context. It is in this light, many fall into the trap of “straining at a gnat and swallow a camel” instead Matthew 23:24

In stating that, my point in my post is a simple one. It is not about politics, morals or even a political candidate; it’s about the existence of choice as allowed by God and the consequences of it by we which we DO (physically) live in a condemned/forsaken earth. Let’s not forget the story of how it all began, which resulted in the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth for the remissions of sins, by which we, as Believers are commissioned, not to offer hope, but to proclaim it.

If we put all the pieces together; the pieces being:

  1. The existence of free will or choice
  2. The consequences (good and bad) of choice.
  3. The fall of man
  4. Satan as prince of the earth
  5. The Sacrifice of Christ

And then add those pieces with its consequence:

  1. The decision to rebel against God resulted in the fall of man.
  2. The fall of man resulted in a condemned earth where Satan was allowed to free access to.
  3. The whole process implemented the Salvation of man in which Christ is our atonement for sin.

As Believers by Faith in Christ Jesus, we are commissioned to proclaim the hope of the Gospel… the Salvation of man, by the blood of Christ. We are to proclaim eternal life, resurrection of the dead, because Christ overcame death. We are to proclaim the promises of God and the promise of the removal of sin, by Faith in Jesus. All the while LOOKING to the heavens for our Savior, yearning for the day and time when we will be with Him always.

"For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him." -- 2 Corinthians 5:1-9

We yearn because we live on earth as foreigners while Satan is throned as prince; we know that this earth is temporal…or do we?

Too many Christians who profess Him live as citizens on this earth. Instead they are looking to the earth, looking to the promises of a political candidate and all he/she stands for. Meanwhile, we are not proclaiming the awesome message of the Gospel, the remission of sin by Faith, the hope of eternal life, the Savior’s victory over death. Instead we focus on “moral” behavior. We focus on our faith and trust in a political candidate in hopes that they would somehow “improve” this condemned earth/nation. All the while forgetting that all things are temporal, all things will come to its end. It is in enlighten state of mind; I share this scripture (which I am NOT the author of):

If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable” 1 Corinthians 15:19

It is not our job to “consider” the moral behavior of others. It is certainly not our responsibility to legislate morality upon others. It is our job as Believers to proclaim, not offer, the hope of the Gospel leaving ALL consequences to Him. Christ Jesus in all His majesty never condemned a sinner for being a sinner.

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.” -- John 8:7-11

He didn’t come to condemn the world (people), but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:17

BUT…

He had the harshest words for the Pharisees who not only were hypocrites, but who loved and embraced their lifestyle and did all they could to preserve it.

-------End of Comment------

We need to tell all that Jesus said,

"Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more".
