A thankful heart

Pastor John
Last night I went to bed and felt so happy, so content and so very thankful for all Jesus has done for me. I just kept thanking Jesus for everything until I fell asleep.

Sometimes I get still and get overwhelmed with what Jesus has done for me, what Jesus has taught me and the great mercy that He has had on my life! I looked back and found an email I sent you a while ago and attached it (below). It was sweet to read it, but what is even sweeter is how He is still doing for me, He is still teaching me and He is still having mercy on my life! What a sweet Savior, what a precious friend!
I never want to forget what He does for me, how He loves me and how He keeps me. At the bottom in red are the things I have added! I know there is much much more……….but it’s still wonderful to think on these things!

Hi Pastor John

Since last weekend, I’ve been thinking about how much I’ve learned and am still learning. The Lord has had such mercy on me, and as I’ve been writing these things, it really makes me see how blessed I am. These are the thoughts I had, day and night. Sometimes as I was falling asleep, I would think of something and write it down.

1. The importance of tithes/offerings.
2. My name was written in the Lamb’s book of life before time began.
3. One receives the holy Ghost with “stammering lip” and “other tongues”.
4. Don’t speed.
5. Leave something with people you see – even if it’s just a smile.
6. It’s ok to be happy, laugh and be free in the spirit.
7. We are different from the world because of the spirit that dwells within us – not because of our outward appearance or ceremonies.
8. The holy Ghost will dwell in an unclean temple…..God is merciful.
9. I can trust the love of God and the love of God in my brothers and sisters.
10. You can have a perfect heart and still make mistakes.
11. Traditions bind God’s people
12. The truth will indeed set you free.
13. When God puts two people together, it’s a beautiful thing.
14. There is perfect order in God’s ways.
15. You can feel safe in your Pastor’s hands.
16. It’s ok to ask questions.
17. You must be able to stand open before God before you can have perfect fellowship with His saints.
18. When you fall, God wants you to learn, get up, and keep moving forward.
19. Jesus’ sacrifice was IT!
20. Jesus is IT!
21. We are human. Everyone of us has battles.
22. The meanings of different doctrines I’ve heard through out the years.
23. If you know the truth, all the counterfeits will be obvious.
24. Spiritual authority.
25. The devil has no control over my life.
26. God has every bit of control over my life.
27. The love of God is so deep, my human brain cannot comprehend – but it’s exciting trying to find out!
28. What God gives us is for people not against them.
29. Benjamin Franklin (not the Bible) said “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”. (Funny, I always heard this, but never knew who said it….duh.)
30. Two foolish virgins cannot get along with each other. A wise virgin can get along with anybody.
31. I WANT TO BE SUBDUED!
32. God can heal anything….sickness, disease, a broken heart, a broken relationship, our thoughts.
33. Happiness comes from God…. not the world.
34. Jesus is my bestest friend….. He has never left me alone. Ever.
35. God’s mercy is remarkable.

When I came to your house two years ago, I thought I was lost and didn’t have a chance. Just look at what the Lord has done for me! I’m so thankful for His mercy. I’m thankful that in this great big world, He looked down and saw me and my family and led us to you….. all of you! There is nothing that God can’t do……for anyone.

36. The sincerity of the love of God that grows deeper and deeper in my heart
37. The simplicity of life in Christ
38. The peace that comes with trusting in Jesus
39. The joy that comes in the morning…. afternoon…. and night.
40. The sweetness of Jesus taking care of the painful moments in my life
41. The love and mercy that He continues to show
42. The family, the fellowship and the love that only He gives

What a wonderful life, Pastor John! Even in times of trouble, heartache, sickness and pain, He makes it all worth it. We are truly blessed!
I love you very much!

Where was Christ

www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebtfro5XEbQ

Pastor John,

It has been an amazing week, seeking the answer to the question you asked me:”Where was Christ when He was sacrificed?” I did find the answer and had a wonderful week with Jesus.

When I got home from the OT study last Sunday, Jesus put a question on my heart (this is before doing any homework or listening to a disc). I was talking to Jerry and I asked him “How did people do the right thing without the law written on their hearts?” I had never really thought about that. That was just the beginning. It seemed like everyday Jesus was putting a question on my heart and answering it the same day. He seemed to be two steps ahead, whispering the question and then gently guiding me to the answer. Today dispatch sent me two hours away, to Philpot Ky. The entire drive this question was just heavy on my heart. I felt like it was right there, but that I couldn’t see it. So I told Jesus “Lord, sheep are not very smart and the shepherd has to lead them… Will you help me find the answer?” I think I made reference to the blind man Jesus healed too. Anyway, after reaching the location, I found out dispatch had made an error and I was supposed to be in Paducah Ky….2.5 hours away. I had to find a parking lot and wait for further direction.

While waiting, I went to http://www.goingtojesus.com and found the video on sacrifice, in the OT study. I listened to it three times. While driving home (video was playing), I felt Jesus on my right side. First my right leg got very warm, the air was on high so it seemed odd that I felt that intense heat. Then my arm and shoulder became very warm. I felt like Jesus was sitting next to me, as close as He could sit. I drove the rest of the way home, holding hands with Jesus. It has been so sweet just to have him teach me. I felt so much, watching all of you respond to what God had taught you about this.

http://www.pioneertract.com/tracts/52_RenewedStrength.pdf

Pastor John,

For years, I’ve wrestled with fatigue.  Sometimes it gets so bad I hardly have the strength to speak.  I get just plain worn out, from activities or exercise that normal people do everyday.  It’s a debilitating fatigue that is deep inside; not just simply being tired or drowsy.  It’s a terrible “drained” feeling; and a weakness at later hours in the day.  That’s why I finally went to see some specialists and get blood work—to check my thyroid, and my blood sugar levels, and my hormone levels.  The thyroid and glucose tests turned out surprisingly positive, with only a hint of high-blood-sugar issues.  The latter tests I have postponed, because I am now feeling better!  

But It started to get worse the week before Mother’s Day, May 11th, then became much worse by May 14th, and on Thursday, the 15th, I had a touch from Jesus. . . a BIG touch. . .

I found some GCC tracts: Saving Strength and Renewed Strength.  Had never read them before. Don’t recall ever seeing them before, but there they were; I had printed them from the PTS website, apparently, perhaps a year ago, they were in a box of office papers and stuff that I’d put in the garage.  I was searching in this box for some memories for Molly’s scrapbook and Jesus put those tracts right smack dab in my path.  They intrigued me.  So I read them.  I wept.  I praised God !  They were the answer to my malaise.  So I prayed and worshipped God.  I felt the power of God upon me, like a heavy, comforting embrace.  And then—a release.  And I suddenly felt better. . . almost completely delivered from the previous symptoms.  What a RELIEF!!!  I went about my day…confident in Christ…and the fatigue has not returned since.  In fact, I worked so hard at the retail store on Monday I thought I’d have a heart attack, from the extreme cardio exercise (stocking outdoor recreational equipment and shoving boxes around in the warehouse), but at the end of my 8 hour shift, I felt okay.  Really okay.  I went to Patty’s that night for OT study and I felt energized–especially after your OT preaching on the Tabernacle.  

It’s all GOD.  It’s HIS strength.  If we stay IN HIM, we have health. . . and strength.  It’s that simple.  

I’m going to trust that from now on.  

I never realized it till I read your father’s eloquent faith-filled writings.  He was such a sweet man of God.

Correct Times, Please

Pastor John,

I can’t find any information that I’m searching for.  I know you’ll be able to assist me. I’m trying to get my brain to comprehend the chronology regarding the dates of historical texts.

My daughter and I were having a chat about the veracity of the Bible, and she asked the common question: “When was the Bible (OT) written?”  AND “Weren’t the Greek myths and the Gilgamesh epic and others written long before the Bible?”  (I think she’s trying to claim that the Bible is not the original documentation of the Flood story nor the story of the One true God.)

I believe I recall you saying that the Bible stories came first, and others were hand-me-downs throughout other cultures based on here-say knowledge of the Bible stories, told verbally in those days.    

But….Moses probably wrote the early scriptures around 1500 BC, according to my KJV.  Greek myths were written around 1900 BC, weren’t they?  (As if that’s supposed to prove that their gods were more valid than the true Jehovah God in the OT.)

When was the book of Job written?  Much earlier , correct?

CB

================

Hi CB: 

(From one website,  May 28, 2014):

http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/past-exhibitions/mythic-creatures/air-creatures-of-the-sky/greek-myths

” How Old Are Greek Myths?”

“Zeus and the other Greek gods on Mount Olympus, from Aphrodite to Poseidon, are familiar characters to many readers. The Greek stories of gods, heroes and monsters are told and retold around the world even today. The earliest known versions of these myths date back more than 2,700 years [circa 700 BC], appearing in written form in the works of the Greek poets Homer and Hesiod. But some of these myths are much older. Indeed, the Greeks borrowed some of their best material from other, more ancient stories.”

Moses wrote 600-800 years before the date given here.  Even if, as some scholars think, Homer wrote as early as during King David’s time (about 1,000 BC), Moses still came centuries earlier.  Some classical scholars have even suggested that there never was a man named Homer, so little is known of him. But the figure of Homer is the “go-to guy” for originations of many ancient Greek mythological concepts.  The Iliad and Odyssey, which bear his name as the author, were to classical culture what the Bible used to be to Western Culture.  They were basic to education and to the Greek understanding of life itself.

The Flood happened 1,656 years after Creation (about 2,500 BC).  To my knowledge, nobody holds that the Gilgamesh epic was written before that. Moreover, there are flood stories in many cultures around the globe, all of them originating after the Flood happened, of course, which is a testimony to the reality of the event that is recorded, and was recorded first, in the Bible.

All theories of human social development (including mythological development) before recorded history (written history) are based, of course, on evolutionary doctrine, and they have no foundation.  The third millennium BC is the farthest back in time that man’s recorded history goes.  Everything taught by man concerning events before the third millennium BC, therefore, is guesswork.  Isn’t that astonishing, considering how very much is taught to our children concerning the time before there Third Millennium BC?

And yes, the story of Job took place very early in history, even before Moses.  When it was at last written down, no one knows, or can know.

Lastly, while I understand that discussions like this must take place with our children when they are confronted by the skeptical cynicism rampant in the educational system of our decadent culture, let me remind you that nothing convinces souls of the truth of the gospel like the power of God does.  Pray that Jesus will touch your daughter.  If he does, then what she has heard from men won’t matter to her at all.  It won’t even matter to her if the Bible was written last week.  She will know the truth, and the truth will make her free.

Pastor John

Good morning John,

 

Sorry, I wasn’t able to get to this when you sent it yesterday.  I sure liked your answer, though, especially at the end when you say it doesn’t make any difference what a person has heard from men if they have been touched by Jesus to hear and believe the Gospel.  There is a lot of physical “evidence” out there to support just about any theory that men come up with, but if someone has truly felt the power of God, that trumps everything else, so that you don’t even have to bother wading through all of the man-made theories to know the truth!

 

Vince

===============

Pastor John, 

As I was reading this my mind started wondering and it made me feel a little overwhelmed.   Then I read your last paragraph and it brought such a peace.  The truth will set you free and it’s good to know that the “truth” is all you really need to know! 

Michelle

=============== 

Amen, Michelle.

This Pearl of the Day from years ago is so good!  But as GCC used to say sometimes after  my sermon, “I’m going to put a cap on it.”

You CAN decide you will believe the truth and hang around for a while, maybe years, but you will not last. You can’t last any more than the disciples could last with Jesus through the garden.  The truth is too much for those who are in the flesh to stay with.  They will be pruned out, regardless of how determined you are to stay. God makes all the decisions that have to do with His kingdom, including who inherits it.

Just so you know . . .

It’s not worthless information.

Can you see why none of these “all’s” mean “all”?

Jdc

(see document below: “All” is not Always “All”)

===============

As I read over the verses on “all” that you sent me, I understood that the “all” in those verses doesn’t mean “all” everywhere.  But what about this verse you listed?  Why doesn’t it mean “all”?

 Romans 3

[23] For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Donna

 ===============

Hi Donna, 

Thanks for the good question!

The “all” in that verse almost means “all”, but there are some exceptions: the Father and His Son, and the angels who were faithful to them.  The Father and the Son and those angels did not sin; therefore, the WHOLE truth is that not “all” have sinned and come short of the glory of God, just some heavenly creatures (including Satan) and all of us humans who did not die very young. 

Pastor John

PS And animals, of course. They didn’t sin, either.

===============

Thank you for explaining that.  I love how simple the truth is!

Donna

===============

Hi John,

I can see why so many “all’s” in the Bible only mean all of something or someone – or all in a certain context – but not purely “all”.  I noticed that Romans 8:28 is left out.  That “all” doesn’t mean “all” either does it?

Rom 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.

Vince

===============

Hi Vince.

I think that “all” really does mean “all”.  What Paul says in Romans 8:28 applies to every single creature anywhere in heaven or earth who loves God and is among those whom He has called.  Everything that happens anywhere in creation, Vince, is only a part of God’s plan for the eventual and eternal good of those who love God and are the called according to His purpose.”  They don t even have to know about the event; all things everywhere are still working together for their good!

Have faith in God.

 jdc

===============

It really takes the Spirit to know what kind of “all” God is talking about!  🙂

Gary

===============

Hey Brother John,

 

Yes, I see what you mean.  I think I realized some of them didn’t mean all, but I honestly don’t think I gave it that much thought.  I find it very interesting to study things such as this.  I think it helps keep us grounded and re-emphasize what you have taught us about God not being as picky as we are about some things.  Thank you for sending it out.

“All” Is Not Always “All”

(search feature stopped working at Hebrews 1)

There are literally dozens of scriptures in the Bible in which the word “all” cannot be taken literally. Some of the New Testament scriptures are given below.

Matthew 14
[35] And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;

Matthew 21
[10] And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?

Matthew 28
[18] And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

But compare Acts 1:7: And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

Mark 1
[4] John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
[5] And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.

Mark 6
[33] And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.

Mark 7
[3] For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
. . .

[14] And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:

Mark 11
[11] And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.

. . .
[17] And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.

[18] And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.

. . .

[32] But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.

Mark 14
[53] And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.

Mark 16
[15] And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Luke 1
[3] It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,

Luke 3
15] And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;
. . .

[21] Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,

Luke 4
[40] Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.

Luke 15
[1] Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.

Luke 19
[47] And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,

[48] And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.

Luke 20
[6] But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet.

. . .
[45] Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples,

Luke 23
[47] Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.

[48] And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.

John 1
[3] all things were made by him….

John 3
[26] And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.

John 4
[25] The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
. . .
[29] Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

. . .
[45] Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.

John 8
[2] And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

John 10
[8] all that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

John 11
[49] And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

John 19
[28] After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

John 21
17] He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter wasgrieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee.

Acts 2
[47] Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

Acts 3
[8] And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

[9] And all the people saw him walking and praising God:

Acts 4
[21] So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done.
. . .
[32] And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

Acts 8
[1] And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.

. . .
[10] To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.

Acts 13
[29] And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulchre.

Acts 14
[26] And thence sailed to Antioch, from whence they had been recommended to the grace of God for the work which they fulfilled.

[27] And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.

Acts 17
[21] (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)

Acts 18
[2] And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.

. . .
[17] Then all the Greeks took Sosthenes, the chief ruler of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment seat. And Gallio cared for none of those things.

Acts 19
[19] Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.

Acts 21
[27] And when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews which were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on him,

Romans 3
[23] For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 15
[14] And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge

Romans 16
[19] For your obedience is come abroad unto all men.

1Corinthians 10
[1] Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

[2] And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; [3] And did all eat the same spiritual meat;

[4] And did all drink the same spiritual drink

2Corinthians 5
[17] Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

[21] But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:

[15] This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me

It is essential to be thoroughly convinced of this:

 

scriptures that show

The Law of Moses was the Law of God

Exodus 24:12  And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

Leviticus 10:11  And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the LORD hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

Leviticus 27:34  These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

Numbers 15:23  Even all that the LORD hath commanded you by the hand of Moses, from the day that the LORD commanded Moses, and henceforward among your generations;

Numbers 31:21  And Eleazar the priest said unto the men of war which went to the battle, This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD commanded Moses;

Deuteronomy 1:3-5  And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the Lord had given him in commandment unto them; After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei: On this side Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses to declare this law, saying,

Deuteronomy 4:1  Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

Deuteronomy 4:5  Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. 

Deuteronomy 4:12-14  And the Lord spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice. And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone. And the Lord commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.
