Call no man Father by Anthony Smith

Matthew 23:5-23:10

Call no man Father A look at deception and Consequences. The institution ofrepparttar Christian religion was and is still based onrepparttar 135076 words of Jesus andrepparttar 135077 Holy Spirit directing men to put forth laws and statutes that are pleasing torepparttar 135078 Father. Many have taken this law of Our Father in Heaven and made it to none effect upon this earth to millions. Some times men will say, “Its all inrepparttar 135079 interpretation.” But where inrepparttar 135080 Bible is it stated that,repparttar 135081 Scripture is only open to private interpretation? This is a deception and misleading statement. In Matthew 23:5 we see Jesus rebukingrepparttar 135082 leadership ofrepparttar 135083 Church for Vanity, lets read; Matthew 23:5-10 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlargerepparttar 135084 borders of their garments, And loverepparttar 135085 uppermost rooms at feasts, andrepparttar 135086 chief seats inrepparttar 135087 synagogues, And greetings inrepparttar 135088 markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. The stability ofrepparttar 135089 House of Israel was not uponrepparttar 135090 minds ofrepparttar 135091 religious leadership at this time. Leaders were trying, as is today, to enlarge their influence uponrepparttar 135092 congregations. Making laws and rules and changingrepparttar 135093 truth ofrepparttar 135094 word of God into a lie. Not stopping for a moment to seerepparttar 135095 damage that they have done neither repenting of it. These men as some are today, cannot see clearly neither can they see any farther than their own ambition. Wanting to make a name for themselves inrepparttar 135096 annals of history, but what they fail to understand, history will neither remember them nor will any ofrepparttar 135097 saints of God. Ask yourself a question, Why Did Jesus come to this earth? What was so important that He gave up, Glory for abuse, a mansion for a rock, Golden Garments for Rags, Honor for Dishonor? John 8:45-49 And because I tell yourepparttar 135098 truth, ye believe me not. How many have been put down because they have toldrepparttar 135099 truth? Mankind has gotten torepparttar 135100 point that they would rather believe a lie instead of believingrepparttar 135101 truth. Mans truth is short lived and it is cankerous and moth eaten. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I sayrepparttar 135102 truth, why do ye not believe me? Why wont they believerepparttar 135103 truth, message after message fromrepparttar 135104 Word of God and many still rejectrepparttar 135105 truth. Man has stated;” We have developed a Roadmap to Peace inrepparttar 135106 Middle East.” The facts state; U.S. Consulate in Saudi Arabia hit An attack onrepparttar 135107 U.S. consulate in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia, left five non-American staff, four police and three extremists dead, U.S. and Saudi officials said afterrepparttar 135108 three-hour long battle. Suit against military policy on Gays, Gunfights rage in Baghdad streets. After escaping fromrepparttar 135109 PA prison several months ago, Kamil returned torepparttar 135110 Jenin region and significantly increased his involvement in Islamic Jihad activity. Kamil is responsible for both executing and directing explosive device attacks and shooting attacks against Israeli security forces operating inrepparttar 135111 Kabatya region. Kamil recruited a vast number of operatives torepparttar 135112 Islamic Jihad infrastructure inrepparttar 135113 Jenin region. Even after this man still calls others father. What have they done, have they delivered any from sin, have they saved a single soul, have they created anything from nothing, have they caused man to be at peace with each other, NO. They can do nothing. And what about them hearingrepparttar 135114 truth, Jesus said; He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. This was a harsh statement wasn’t it, but does this statement from Christ still hold true today? The answer is yes. Everything Jesus said and did was fromrepparttar 135115 True Father in Heaven and not a man made doctrine of human fatherhood. Then answeredrepparttar 135116 Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? {This was an example of Blaspheme ofrepparttar 135117 Holy Ghost} Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me. {Mat 23:12-13 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut uprepparttar 135118 kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.} [ABA’SED, pp. Reduced to a low state, humbled, degraded.] Jesus in this verse declaresrepparttar 135119 state ofrepparttar 135120 Priest and others that dared to exalt themselves aboverepparttar 135121 level of servant torepparttar 135122 people. Jesus stated that, he came to serve and not to be served. These last few verses arerepparttar 135123 most ignored verses in Scripture, Lets read;

~ Rejoice and Be Thou Ravished ~

Written by Dot McGinnis

~ Rejoice and Be Thou Ravished ~

“Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice withrepparttar wife of thy youth. Let her be asrepparttar 135075 loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love." Proverbs 5:18-19

When interpreting Scripture, we must always keep in mind thatrepparttar 135076 manners and customs, in Bible days, differed greatly from those we have today. For example, when dealing with what some would consider “delicate subjects”, they did so freely; readily discussing sexual and personal matters in mixed company, and often inrepparttar 135077 presence of their children. Their discussions were done in an open manner; with a frankness and a bluntness that would make many people, in today’s society, blush. We need to keep these things in mind when interpreting verses like those above. Verse 18 begins, “Let thy fountain be blessed.” The Hebrew word for fountain is maw-kore’ andrepparttar 135078 way it is used here is as a euphemism, forrepparttar 135079 female pudenda;repparttar 135080 female genitals or sexual organs. This verse goes on to say, “and rejoice with” (not apart from, but together with), “the wife of your youth.” This is talking aboutrepparttar 135081 sexual act, which is to be a joyous experience for both partners, within a marriage. It is talking here about marriage and marital relationships, not premarital, or extra-marital relationships. Verse 19 says, “Let her be asrepparttar 135082 loving hind,” (female deer) “and pleasant roe” (wild climbing goat). The Hebrew word for loving is ah’hab, which speaks of affection; sexual or otherwise. Pleasant or khane means well-favored, or gracious; precious, an object of beauty.
