The Psalmist Wrote:

“The Psalmist wrote: The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart {are} to all generations– Psalms 33:11, and yes, this includes our generation in this day and time. Just mulling the wonderful Word around in our minds and allowing the thoughts of his heart to filter up into our hearts will cultivate godly concepts and produce inspired actions; these are things God not only will never forget, but He will reward our efforts forever and ever.” ~LMJ~

God’s Faithful Calling

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

God is always faithful to what His Word says, His promises to you are always true, and His calling you into His family is not a mistake. God the Creator of heaven and earth has loved you before time began, you were always in the foreknowledge of His mind, and He has always watched over your life.

God called you, and gave you His Word to rely on in this life and in the life that is to come.

When you begin seeing that God indeed called you into His household by your receiving the truth of His healing Word, then you may claim His Word and all its promises for your own by your very own believing. God’s Word instructs the believer how to believe correctly to receive His blessings and the many promises of His Word ordained and prepared for you before the world began. As the Word begins to permeate the soul as divine truth, so the more abundant life begins to become a daily reality as your walk with God continues growing within your heart along with the spiritual understanding to enjoy it.

I Thessalonians 5:19-20:
-19:  Quench not the Spirit.
-20:  Despise not prophesyings.

The Spirit here refers to the spirit that God gives each believer; it is a part of God Himself Who is our Father and the Holy Spirit. The spirit that we receive brings to our conscious minds that which God has spiritually given to us in His divine and faithful calling. God’s Word is imploring us not to quench, not to ignore and put aside in our thinking and actions, the divine revelations that the spirit can reveal to men and women of heart who believe in the Spirit of the living God.

Verse 20 is encouraging believers not to disregard the prophecies of Scripture, the past, the present, as well as the future revelations of God’s Word. Prophesying is also an in-spirit action, where believers may speak the Word of God by complete inspiration of having God in Christ in their hearts. For instance: “God is faithful in calling you,” this is a prophecy that is based on truth, based on God’s Word, and this prophecy will edify and build up the believers. Thus, prophecy always brings profit into our lives, and we have the God-given right to speak authoritatively on God’s Word once we become cognizant of God’s Word living in our hearts.

I Thessalonians 5:21-25:
-21:  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
-22:  Abstain from all appearance of evil.
-23:  And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
-24:  Faithful is he {God} that calleth you, who also will do it.
-25:  Brethren, pray for us.

The believers have the God-given ability to “prove all things” that God’s Word gives to us, and as we prove the Word of God to our own satisfaction, then we are to “hold fast” to “that which is good.” When the Word shows to us something evil, then we are to step back away from it, and hold wholly to that which is good.

The result of doing this is that the God of peace may sanctify the whole believer – his spirit, his soul, as well as his body and thus we are preserved blameless from now till the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ for us – this is a promise that we can hold fast in our minds by our believing. In verse 24, what is it that God will do? He will bring us into the fullness of His faithful calling to be His sons and daughters for eternity.

Then Paul says “brethren pray for us”; this is a terrific lesson of Scripture, to pray for our leaders in the Church, for those who have delivered unto us the greatness of knowing the faithfulness of God’s calling to us.

The Mother – Not Earth!

“The umbilical cord that passes through all humans is the tie that binds all human beings back to Eve, back to the Mother of All the Living, to the creation of mankind in Genesis and there the cord begins and links us to the Adamic race of man. This unbroken cord leads the believer to becoming men and women of God who have a promised, everlasting life above (John 8:23-24), in and with Christ (Colossians 1:13, 3:1). Jesus said, Have ye not read, that he {God} which made them at the beginning {Genesis, chapters 1 and 2} made them male and female {note, mankind was not a single-celled microorganism at the beginning, but from the beginning man was made male and female; and all things continue as they were from the beginning– II Peter 3:4}. For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder– Matthew 19:4-6. And yet man has been trying to separate the two human beings, saying in essence that we came from worms and evolved into mankind or from a prehistoric one-celled organism to the two current sexes and/or from apes to modern man. The principles of evolution imagines mankind can put asunder what God hath done, the world by wisdom knew not God– I Corinthians 1:21, and yet man through his own wisdom thinks he knows better than both God and Jesus because man’s own wisdom cannot grasp the realities of our God or His Word without genuine faith.” ~LMJ~

Relations – but Not Family!

“We, modern man or better yet I should say, we Adamic man, are related to a dinosaur ― indeed, we certainly are! We, Adamic man, are related to a chimpanzee ― indeed, we certainly are! We, Adamic man, are related to Lucy ― indeed, we certainly are! We, Adamic man, are related to a worm ― indeed, we certainly are! We, Adamic man, are related to a one celled organism ― indeed, we certainly are, but BUT – BUT only because we all have the same Creator Who used the same basic elements or as science likes to say, ‘DNA reveals the building blocks of life.’ DNA is claimed to be the building blocks of all of life, although from a biblical viewpoint DNA is to be understood as the identifying code that links all individuals and all species’ bodily parts to their Creator. When we are born again, we become more than the fallen kind in Adam’s image (Genesis 5:3); through faith we become born of God as His children and freed from the impulse of the fallen nature to always reject truth with a new divine nature– II Peter 1:4, That which is born of the flesh is flesh {this is the fallen nature}; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit {this is the spiritual nature}- John 3:6. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit– Romans 8:5. The truth is, no other living thing was created in God’s image, likeness, or His similitude; not a dinosaur, not a chimpanzee, not Lucy, not a worm, not a one celled organism. This is the one difference that most of science overlooks and is the most important founding conclusion of all logical and biblical reasoning, and man’s most basic premise for separating himself out from everything else created or discovered in the entire universe from the smallest microorganism to the largest living entity. And we should separate ourselves out and above any other kind of species because God has (See, the entire Bible)! Thou madest him {man} to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas– Psalms 8:6-8.” ~LMJ~

Ye Shall Be as Gods (Albeit – Being His Children Is Better)

“With all the knowledge we can receive from God, we cannot give the so-called Darwinism theory a eulogy (as many have given to God) because the deathbed of evolution will not allow it to lie down and pass quietly into the night (because of who possesses that bed and the doctrine of, Ye shall not surely die . . . your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods– Genesis 3:4-5). The theory of evolution itself keeps returning over the centuries and rising from the ashes in various and sundry forms almost with unfathomable resurrection power; like the beast that was {alive}, and is not {for it is dead or has died}, and yet is {―――back again}- Revelation 17:8. Through the ages, man’s concepts of evolution continues rising up from the ashes like a mythological phoenix or a new sphinx as this is the fallen nature and mythical course fallen man chooses to follow pointless and endless genealogies that ultimately lead away from God. Darwin’s book (who many claim to be an affront to God’s Book), ‘On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life,’ and it is obvious that fallen, natural man must follow suit and struggle his way through life. However, we can come to Jesus who said, I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly– John 10:10. He gave us rest, not struggle, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light– Matthew 11:28-30. Jesus said, I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]– John 16:33, The Amplified Bible*). This sure beats the hell out of Darwin’s struggle for life.” ~LMJ~
