The Worst Decision I Ever Made With Respect to Eternity.  How Jesus Got Me Out Of It and What I Learned Along The Way

by Walt Giddings

June 28, 2020

The last time we met on the topic, Foundation. I testified that in my sophomore year in junior college, October 1964, I watched the movie Inherit the Wind, starring Spencer Tracy, Frederick March, and Gene Kelly. Because of Inherit the Wind I decided the Bible was a beautiful book of fables, for which I was not responsible, for which I had no accountability.

From the age of nineteen in October 1964 to the age of thirty seven July 1982, I wallowed in doing things every way but God’s way. Isolated at the house I was losing, I decided to read this book I bought a year ago, Miracle on Main Street by Tupper Saussy. On page ten it quotes Deuteronomy 25: 13-15. When I finished, I went back to page ten and read again the Bible verses. I now understood a Scripture from the Bible that had been a closed Book to me. If I had understood that Scripture I would have been a wiser steward of the household dominion. The thought occurred to me, what else is in The Bible?

Psalms 25:8 Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.

God was teaching me, a sinner, and I was not worth the powder to blow me to kingdom come! Tis mercy all!

Scripture Reading: Matthew 24:21

Introduction

This continues from where we left off in Part 5 of our series on WWII, so our verse is the same. Most of us have never experienced such tribulation as we have been studying about; for this we are truly grateful to the Almighty. There may well come a time that such things come to America, and indeed, it appears that things are going in that direction. Yahweh help us as we lean upon Your grace and deliverance.

WHAT IS GOING ON? 

Copied from the sermon notes of Pastor Don Elmore

Scripture Reading: Nehemiah 9:1-3

Naomi, her husband and two married sons, had died. They had been living in the “country or land of Moab” for over 10 years. The Moabites had been living there but had been driven out for over 300 years. There were no Moabites who were living there at this time.

Her two sons, Mahlon and Chilon, were married to Ruth and Orpah. What were they to do after they were all widowed? The famine, the reason they had left Bethlehem, was over. Naomi suggested that they return to Bethlehem. But only Ruth said that she would return to Bethlehem with her, while her sister-in-law would go elsewhere. Where did she go? Did she find someone else to marry?

Scripture Reading: Matthew 24:16-21

Today in 2020, we are approaching civil war. Throughout the course of history, we can always find terrible events that have affected civilization. Few people realize the tribulation the South faced after our own War Between the States. Under military rule, property was taken and blacks were given political positions without proper elections. Poverty was a way of life for many decades in the South. Yet, all these events are minor compared to the tribulation that whites have faced in the war against Germany. Where is justice for the Germans?

In our passage, Jesus described the destruction of Jerusalem as one of the troubles that would happen before His coming. We see in this passage, Jesus’ depiction of fleeing refugees before the Roman army when they attacked in 70 AD. The word “then” in our text is emphasizing this time of stress. We should also consider it a time of unusual trouble, as we have seen during the 20th century. This could mean that our Lord’s redemption is near, for certainly we need His deliverance once again, as we see evil prosper at every hand. “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Lk. 21:28). This is Luke’s advice during horrendous times.

Genesis 4:16, 17

Map of Galilee, Samaria and JudeaWho was living in Palestine?

Let’s reason together for a little bit. Does the Bible depict two different seed lines that hate one another? Does the Bible tell of two different seed lines that have a different destiny? Does the Bible instruct us that these two different seed lines are enemies of each other? Let’s consider one place where this is very true.

Let’s look at the individuals who were living in Judea at the time of Christ. Were they all Israelites? We’re not talking about Galilee or Samaria, but Judea. Were all the Judaeans of that time Israelites? Were they all of one seed or were they of two seeds?

Let’s look at which of the three sections (Galilee, Samaria or Judea) the following took place:

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 9:19-21

“Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother. And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm: Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.”

Introduction

The 20th century has been the most violent period in history.

Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes.” – Rom. 3:15-18

The imagery that Paul uses here appears to have come from this section in Isaiah (Chps. 9:8-10:4; part of which we read), where the prophet predicts the destruction of Israel because of certain sins. These include: arrogance, false leaders, hatred, and oppression. Each sin is judged separately and followed by the concluding statement, “…but his [God’s] hand is stretched out still” [in judgment against Israel]. Are we still being judged today?

The Worst Decision I Ever Made With Respect to Eternity.  How Jesus Got Me Out Of It and What I Learned Along The Way

by Walt Giddings

May 17, 2020

Greetings Kindred. We are on a first name basis here. My name is Walter. I am not your teacher. The Holy Spirit is your Real Teacher. As my classmates in God’s classroom You will do the work with me. In the Liberty granted me on this occasion I ask the able bodied brethren to join me in Proverbs.

Proverbs 13:13 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.

Although I see the power of testimony in the lives of my brethren, I remain a bit of a sceptic with respect to autobiography. Second, the axiom that the pastors of a local body are by the Holy Spirit best endowed in Christ to see the church in its most immediate spiritual need, needs no explanation. Since I see that these two axioms, the power of testimony and the endowment of pastors, are not mutually exclusive, you get to watch me struggle to strike a balance.

Banned "Plandemic" Video

This is a very important video for you to watch and sheds light on the health industry. Plandemic is a documentary about virologist Judy Mikovits who claims US health agencies buried her research showing vaccines weaken people’s immune systems and made them more vulnerable to Covid-19. She also asserts that wearing masks is dangerous because it “literally activates your own virus”.

YouTube has taken down the video.  Why? It broke their community guidelines which state anything that speaks against the World Health Organization will be removed. Of course, this decree came down from the CEO of YouTube.

It is scheduled for full release in the summer, but right now you can watch the vignette, a shorter version.

THE INVISIBLE ENEMY

Copied from the sermon notes of Pastor Don Elmore

May 10, 2020

Scripture Reading:  Matthew 4:15

Has does Israel's enemies control the minds of the people of God?   They buy and control the media. For the last two hundred years they have done this with much success.  In this sermon I give some examples of what has happened because they have controlled of the media.
