The Commandments And The Law | God’s Handwriting – Spiritual Reading.




Let me call your attention to the fact that God wrote on the tables of stone at Sinai as well as one the wall of Belshazzar’s palace. These are the only messages to men that God has written with His own hand. He wrote the commandments out twice, and spoke them aloud in the hearing of Israel.



If it were known that God Himself was going to speak once again to man, what eagerness and excitement there would be. For nearly nineteen hundred years He has been silent. No inspired message has been added to the Bible for nearly nineteen hundred years. How eagerly all men would listen if God should speak once more.


Yet men forget that the Bible is God’s own Word, and that it is as truly His message to-day as when it was delivered of old. The law that has given at Sinai has lost none of its solemnity. Time cannot wear out its authority or the fact of its authorship. I can imagine some one saying — “I won’t be weighed by that law. I don’t believe in it.”



Now men may cavil as much as they like about other parts of the Bible, but I have never met an honest man that found fault with the Ten Commandments. Infidels may mock the Lawgiver and reject Him who has delivered us from the curse of the law, but they can’t help admitting that the commandments are right. Renan said that they are for all nations, and will remain the commandments of God during all the centuries.



If God created this world, He must make some laws to govern it. In order to make life safe we must have good laws; there is not a country the sun shines upon that does not possess the laws. Now this is God’s law. It has come from on high, and infidels and skeptics have to admit that it is pure. Legislatures nearly all over the world adopt it as the foundation of their legal systems.



“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is pure, making wise the simple: the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.”



Now the question for you and me is — are we keeping these commandments? Have we fulfilled all the requirements of the law? If God made us, as we know He did, He had a right to make that law; and if we don’t use it aright it would have been better for us if we had never had it, for it will condemn us. We shall be found wanting. The law is all right, but are we right?



Excerpt From – Weighed And Wanting By Dwight Lyman Moody.



The Ten Commandments


1 And God spoke all these words, saying:
2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
7 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
13 “You shall not murder.
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Exodus 20:1-17

How To Avoid Religion And Start Succeeding – Faith Versus Religion.


​I will stand with my assertion that men/women of faith have failed Jesus.
They are the ones who have witnessed his miracles and refused to share about those signs and wonders when it mattered most.
They are like Peter who denied Jesus three times before his death.


Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord, where are You going?” Jesus answered him, “Where I am going you cannot follow Me now, but you shall follow Me afterward.” 37 Peter said to Him, “Lord, why can I not follow You now? I will lay down my life for Your sake.” 38 Jesus answered him, “Will you lay down your life for My sake? Most assuredly, I say to you, the rooster shall not crow till you have denied Me three times.

John 13:36-38

Men and Women of faith keep failing Jesus. Through the centuries. Everyday. They deny and fail Jesus everyday. Someone might then say; “Some men have everything in their favor. They are destined to succeed.”


Well, my response would be that people born with everything destined to go their way are not men/women of faith. They are men of religion.
I will give examples.


  • Jesus is a man of Faith. Not a man of the religion.
  • Jacob was a man of Faith. Not a man of the religion.
  • Nikola Tesla was a man of Faith. Not a man of the religion
  • Isaac Newton was a man of Faith. Not a man of the religion.
  • Donald Trump is a man of Faith. Not a man of the religion.

Let me explain further.


The natural laws say, a virgin can’t give birth to a child and yet it happened. The spiritual laws say, God can’t be man. And yet he was. The Jewish laws says, a man can’t work on the Sabbath and yet Jesus was caught countless times healing on the Sabbath.


See, thing with religion is that the more times we keep trying to live by it, the more entangled we become. I’m not saying that religion and the law don’t work. They work to a certain extent but they are doomed to fail eventually. They are not solid. They are fools gold. They are fakes. They are not the real thing. They promise you that if you put in so much, you will get this much.


Religious law makers and keepers promise you heaven if you keep all the commandments. They will promise you all sorts of great things in this life and thereafter if you keep the law. However they will not tell you that you can get the same things and even more if you know Jesus and believe in him. They don’t teach about Grace and love.


See the deception?
Okay … Lets go slow… I understand this is a dangerous road I’m trending.
You will go see your Doctor. They will tell you not to smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol because you will get cancer and pancreatitis.

Aha!


But haven’t we seen people who have never smoked their whole life die of cancer? Haven’t we seen non-alcoholics die of pancreatitis?
So, if you have been someone who has been following your Doctors law, what happens when you get cancer the next day?


Will your Doctor have failed you? Told you a lie? Will you stop going to the Doctors? I will tell you what failed you. Not the Doctor or his rules. The law and religion failed you.


The man of Faith will probably be the one who smokes his pipe until he is 80, never gets cancer and if you ask his secret, he will tell you that he believes God protects him. When he tells you this, you will probably refuse and not believer him. Because your religious dogmatic mind can’t comprehend how that can be possible.


We think, to succeed or make it in life, we need religions and laws. We are all men of religion and we sell it to each other. In different spheres of Life. Everywhere you look, you will find it.


But the men who beat the odds and make it in this life, are not men of religion. The geniuses and miracles of our time, are not men of religion. The men we hate the most because of their success, the ones into whose faces we spit, are not men of the law and religion. They are men of Faith. We don’t hate them for their success or ambitions. We hate them for their audacity to win despite the odds.


We become religious men every time we hate. Every time we choose hate over love, for whatever reason, we become men of religion. Every time we refuse to let go of our prejudices and we become dogmatic then we become religious people. Religion happens to all of us. It’s an everyday struggle for every human being. It’s our flesh.


Humans love laws. It’s the human mind. We teach it everywhere. To our children. To our parents. To ourselves. We sell it to each other everyday.
From time immemorial. We have never learnt that to survive and thrive we don’t need religion but love.


Therefore, when religion fails us, we default to hate and fear.
Faith, which is different from religion sets off our panic buttons. We see Faith win and because we are human, we hate Faith because, it reminds us of our weaknesses as humans. It reminds us of the time, religion failed us. Religion said that it was only those who studied for the test who passed. Religion said those who didn’t study, didn’t succeed in life. Until religion failed us. Religion told us that Trump couldn’t win an Election because his curriculum vitae didn’t read right and yet Faith proved us wrong.


We say, “Religion helps give us knowledge and guidance to survive.” It starts from birth. Religion is not scary because it is the known. And we therefore hate anything that would dare tamper with those comforts. And in holding onto false things, we end up missing the real thing.


Can we go back to the real thing? Can we go back to faith? Can we become men/women of Faith? Faith wins every time. Faith beats the odds. Faith can move mountains. With Faith we are sure of success.


So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

Mark 11:22-23

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.
3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

Hebrews 11:1-3

A Letter Of Faith – Jack Phillips

A Letter Of Faith - Jack Phillips Blog Post Banner Image

A Letter Of Faith – Jack Phillips.

Dear Jack Phillips,

It is because of people like you that our Faith is encouraged, fortified and strengthened.
It is because of strong pillars and fighters for Jesus, the Bible and righteousness, that hope billows in our hearts.
It is because of godly and upright people like you that love flows into our hearts.
It is your bravery, courage and boldness that spurs us on to the run the race and fight the good fight of faith.
Thank you so much for standing tall and fighting the good fight of faith.
Thank you for choosing Jesus above all else.
I pray Jesus Christ blesses you exceedingly, abundantly, above anything you can ever imagine.

June 4th 2018, seven out of nine Justices of the supreme court of the USA ruled in favor of Jack Phillips, a Baker from Colorado who refused to bake a cake for a gay couple because it was in contradiction to his beliefs.

I want to thank the nine Justices for making a wise and godly decision. For allowing their conscience to rule despite the pressures and popular trends. I pray Jesus blesses them abundantly for their decision in this highly controversial matter.

With increased persecution of believers in Jesus across the world, reading the supreme court ruling is a great victory for the Church of Jesus Christ.

The Bible says, that nothing can overcome the Church of Jesus. This victory clearly shows how Jesus fought for his Church and bride against the wiles of the enemy.

And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Matthew 16:18-19

When the humanists, secularists, devil worshippers took the Church to court, they lost.
Justice belongs to Jesus. Justice does not belong to the devil.

To lawyer Kristen Waggoner of the conservative Christian group: Alliance Defending Freedom and her team who represented Jack Phillips. Well done. Excellent job. Let Jesus bless your careers, give you more wisdom and knowledge of the Law. The Church needs more lawyers of your caliber.

I also want to thank the Christian protestors who took their placards and stood outside the court building to show their support for Jack Phillips and what he stands for.
Let Jesus mightily bless you for the love and unity you showed to Jack Phillips.

To those who prayed and fasted for Jack Philips and the Church of Jesus, thank you very much. Let the head of the church who is Christ Jesus mightily strengthen your faith and increase you.

In these perilous times, it’s comforting to see the Church unite for a common cause.

So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Ephesians 4:11-13

We have no doubt that you Jack Phillips are a true son of the most high God Jesus Christ. We thank Jesus Christ for your life and your testimony.

Jesus bless you.

Spiritual Revival And Renewal Is Coming To California – Faith – Powerful Stories

Spiritual Revival And Renewal Is Coming To California - Faith - Powerful Stories Blog Post Banner Image

For a long time now, California, especially San Francisco and Los Angeles have been labelled a sort of play ground for the devil.

I have never quite understood how a State with cities named Los Angeles, meaning, “The Angels” and San Fransisco named for Saint. Francis of Assisi could be so plunged with so much iniquity and demons instead.

What not with all the going on’s in  Hollywood  and all the gay parades and havens San Francisco is famous for. Recently Mel Gibson on the Graham Norton Show had some rather shocking revelations to share concerning Hollywood Elites, going as far as alleging that, ” They thrive on breaking every God-given taboo known to man. They have a blatant disregard for the good of the people. Destroying people’s lives is just a game to them. The more pain they can cause, the better the thrill. Children a just sustenance to them. They feast on the pain and fear, and the younger, the better. These people follow their own religion and use it for moral guidance. It’s not the sort of religious teachings you folks would ever hear about. They perform sacred rituals that are sick and totally at odds with the moral fabric that binds most patriotic Americans. The worst part: It’s an open secret in Hollywood and everyone wants in on it.”

All things he shared sound like something out of a movie and not real life. I can only pray his life is safe after those revelations. What not with all the occult and ritualistic descriptions sounding like some sort of modern day witchcraft and sorcery.

After all the scandals that kept pouring out of the state, e.g Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey etc week after week and then the occurrence of the Monstrous Thomas Fire and all the devastation it caused, I guess some folks woke up and started seriously seeking the face of the Lord for the State.

Now, Hope starts to trickle in with wonderful News like a Christian High School Student standing up to the High School Board requesting for the current District Policy which states that,” Philosophical and Religious Theories not be discussed during Science Class” be changed so that he is able to express his religious views, one starts to feel like the Holy Spirit is about to Visit California to do some much needed house cleaning.

In many ways, one can feel the spiritual war that is raging over the state as various phenomenon sweep through the state.

But the Holy Spirit is moving through the world and `California will not be left behind! There is hope for California.

Hillsong held its awesome conference in Los Angeles and various Saints prayed for the State. I know many people are praying for the state that Jesus will move and heal California of it’s iniquities.

Even if many people in the world have given up on the salvation of California, Jesus and his Holy Spirit have not given up on California. Revival and Renewal is coming to the Golden State. Jesus is going to be glorified in California.

If I had any doubts before, because of all the news that keeps coming out of the state, the courage and boldness of 16 year old Grayson Mobley and his strong faith-in-jesus-christ/">faith in Jesus just started dispelling those doubts.

And as my doubts are dispelled, I’m compelled to ask, who else will join to take this mantle further and bring the Lord’s Ark to the City? How many people are willing to join in Sanctification like King David? Our world needs God. We need him to heal our Land and bless it. Let’s join those praying.

7 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah, and God struck him down there because of his error, and he died there beside the ark of God. 8 And David was angry because the Lord had broken out against Uzzah. And that place is called Perez-uzzah to this day.

9 And David was afraid of the Lord that day, and he said, “How can the ark of the Lord come to me?” 10 So David was not willing to take the ark of the Lord into the city of David. But David took it aside to the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.

11 And the ark of the Lord remained in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite three months, and the Lord blessed Obed-edom and all his household.
12 And it was told King David, “The Lord has blessed the household of Obed-edom and all that belongs to him, because of the ark of God.” So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom to the city of David with rejoicing.

13 And when those who bore the ark of the Lord had gone six steps, he sacrificed an ox and a fattened animal. 14 And David danced before the Lord with all his might. And David was wearing a linen ephod. 15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouting and with the sound of the horn.

2 Samuel 6:7-15
