Romans 3

Romans 3 New King James Version (NKJV) Here Paul is wanting to make sure we understand the way, truth and life about sin that affects both Jews and Gentiles for everyone is equal as all are sinner in need of help.
God’s Judgment Defended
What advantage then has the Jew, or what is the profit of circumcision? God choose to bless the Jews and anyone that obeyed the law. Yes, they were privileged and honored to be given a law that required a lot of work in preparing the sacrifice even of being circumcised.  Much in every way! Chiefly because to them were committed the oracles of God. God not only choose them, but gave them responsibility to obey the lively oracles or commandments written in the scriptures. The Urim and Thummim, the logia our breastplate of righteousness. The Old Testament was written in their own language. So, the Jews had the means of Salvation but did not have a monopoly of Salvation. What is hard to accept is many did not believe and still today many do not believe yet.  For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? This is a startling thought and it does not invalidate and over throw the prophecies or doctrines of the Bible. His word is going to accomplished even through today we are seeing the lie as truth and the truth as a lie from not only the media but many within the church world.
4Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written:
“That You may be justified in Your words,
And may overcome when You are judged, God does not change and is still the same yesterday today and forever. It is man that listen to a lie in the very beginning and still is full of denial to the truth of Gods promises. Men are liars, God is the way, truth and life for He has pure, holy, words to give us assurance we know the truth to be set free of all sin. As we accept abiding in the vine letting God give us then justification. He allows us to maintain His Justice, truth and goodness as we have hope, faith, in worshiping God and reverencing his holy name as we pray for assistance to be able to run with patience with what God has blest us with.
But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unjust who inflicts wrath? (I speak as a man.) Certainly not! For then how will God judge the world? Carnal hearts could feel they can do wrong and it is ok for that could be the reason for so much evil over riding good. God is going to punish sin for it has consequences and we cannot argue with Gods will. God is going to judge the world and the sins of the world
For if the truth of God has increased through my lie to His glory, why am I also still judged as a sinner? Sin is a lie and God hates lies and we can’t think it is ok to even tell white lies.  Satan is the father of lies and works at us to get us to think it is ok and it is not. And why not say, “Let us do evil that good may come”?—as we are slanderously reported and as some affirm that we say. Their condemnation is just. It is in the heart that we seem to do evil and feel we are justified by saying so with our mouths. Could it be we are living in a time of great deception as ministers are forsaking some doctrines of the Bible like eternal security, no need of repenting and forsaking evil. We are caught up with entertainment of the world rather than having a relationship with the Lord that is satisfying. Remember our Savior was accused to be in league with Beelzebub. Satan’s job is to cast dirt upon Christian minister and teachers of the world of God. It has been said, Lay slander thickly on, for some will be sure to stick. The best men and the best of truths are subject to slander. Blasphemoumetha or blasphemy in scripture usually signifies the highest degree of Slander, speaking ill of God
All Have Sinned
What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin. What a truth for we are all born into this world of sins evil for it does not make any difference rather you were born in the time of the Old Testament you had to sacrifice an animal to atone or provide forgiveness and in the New Testament one has the opportunity to accept the Sacrifice of God giving us His Son Jesus to live among us and then to have to die and give of His own life as the ultimate sacrifice for your sin. Satan wants to bind and addict us so we sink to the lowest hell so he has control of your sinning. We are guilty of sinning and only accepting and abiding in the Lord will keep us truly honest and pure of body, soul and Spirit.
10 As it is written:
“There is none righteous, no, not one; Psalms 14:1-7 Ps 53:1-3; Isaiah 59:7-8 1. Habitual Defects. Yet Noah was righteous by grace as He obeyed the Lord and built the Ark; shelter in the time of storm.
11 There is none who understands; The fault lies in the corruption of the understanding, that is blinded, depraves, perverted by Satan. It is necessary we present ourselves a living Sacrifice as Romans 12 1-2 says.There is none who seeks after God. Sinners are fools for not seeking the Lord desiring the Lord in wanting a relationship. The carnal mind is in control burning with the lust of more of the world.
12 They have all turned aside; I am confident people to day do not want to know the truth for our consciences have been seared and we have accepted you do your thing and I will do mine and we will not bother one another but live happily ever after. This corruption is apostasy at the greates degree
They have together become unprofitable; Not producing good fruit but only evil works that is destroying families and relationships among people. Every defect is the source of evil and need to be cut off.
There is none who does good, no, not one.”  This is so true around the world today as we have witness President Donald Trump in Saudi Arabia talk about destroying ISIS as it is evil and all evil needs to be destroyed.
13 “Their throat is an open tomb; Ready to swallow up the poor and innocent wanting to do mischief, just like Satan wants us to do.
With their tongues they have practiced deceit”; We are seeing the Serpent seeking whom he can devour for he is the destroyer of all goodwill and peace
“The poison of asps is under their lips”; Can’t get any worse than this for today who can you trust. Our media and smart phone are being used to the max by Satan.
14 “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.” We are seeing people on TV that do not have any morals, so anything goes and people are full of bitterness that is driving people to lawlessness. Christian are given a tongue to worship and praise the Lord, not to curse God or even others
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood; We are seeing today ISIS and other forms of religious beliefs that seem to take great delight in destroying anyone that does not believe like they do. Yes this has always been the cause in some areas not it is worldwide.
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways; We are seeing terror around the world as people are becoming destructive tearing down decentcy and morality to be like God instead act like and be like Satan.
17 And the way of peace they have not known.” They have been taught from birth hate is ok and what you hate destroy. I find people do not want to be treated with disrespect and many just do not care. 18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” Fear is like anger it is our greatest weapons that keeps us connected to God Holiness and justice. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and be angry and do not sin for sin is turning on people and destroying character. Where no fear of god is, no good can be expected instead wreck and ruin.

Controller Mentality
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Monday, 22 May 2017

Teresa Shields Parker a mother wrote this and I agree it is so easy to want to over ride what God has in store for us, so am posting this to show my approval.

Are you out of control? I'll admit, being in control or being the boss has always been something I highly valued. Being in charge and knowing what's going on seemed to be where I fit in the great scheme of things. I liked leading.

As a matter of fact, I liked it so much that I was always the one to make the decisions. I wanted to direct the outcomes to be what I wanted or at least what I felt were required.

Controller Mentality

Lately, though, being in control just takes too much energy. I'm not administering or managing. I'm simply trying to control the chaos and confusion.

In case you're wondering, that's not working.

As a child, I didn't like it when I saw adults in my life who seemed out of control. Even at a young age, I stepped in to be in control. At least then I'd know if supper got made or the clothes washed and dried.

Not knowing if it would get done would drive me more crazy than just doing it myself. These days, trying to do it all or make sure it all gets done is beyond exhausting and borders on a state of paralysis.

Giving God Control

Understanding this has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. I handed my need to control everything to God because I no longer had the capacity to do it. I didn't struggle with it. I just handed it to Him.

When He accepted my "gift," I didn't ask Him, "What do You give me in exchange?" I didn't want anything else to manage. Still, I was immediately engulfed in peace. What a welcome relief.

Then, insight and clarity began to flood me. God gave me a gift of leadership and administration, but He gave it to me to steward. That means I only have authority over the things He hands me.

This may not be a major revelation to you, but I am not God. However, as His daughter, I can lead you to Him if I am not trying to be Him.

MOTHERS DAY MESSAGE 2017

Mothers Day

 The Bible is full of many stories of who the women is and how God created them to bear forth children that would be a blessing to our world as they accepted their role. God did not create anything to limit us, we limit ourselves as we disobey the will of the Lord.

God knows exactly what we need and Peters words here in the 3rd chapter of 1 Peter 3 gives an account of what the husbands and wives needed to do as he describes their role beginning with the wife.

We all need to be in unity, love, have compassion, peace and patience under suffering, to oppose the slander of the enemies, not by returning evil for evil, or railing for railing, but by blessing one another. This only happens when both are connected to the Lord for the work of a help meet, giving faith and hope the opportunity to work with our consciences. We all want something good to happen, right?

Now let’s look at verse 1 Wives Likewise is in reference to what was said about Jesus in Chapter 2: 18-25

18 Servants, be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh. 19 For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully. 20 For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God. 21 For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us,[f] leaving us[g] an example, that you should follow His steps:

22 “Who committed no sin,
Nor was deceit found in His mouth”; [
h]

23 who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. 25 For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer[i] of your souls.

1 Peter 3 (NKJV) Submission to Husbands

Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fearNow it is hard to relax as we abide in the Lord, yet when we do we realize the importance of 1. Relationships have a duty, which we have to preach and we all need to understand, in order to have God’s blessing upon our lives in the world we are living in when Women’s rights are being protested. 2. We need a cheerful subjection, that is a loving respect rather good or bad, Adam and Eve fell because of seeing what God said, do not eat of the tree of Good and Evil Satan made sure she; desired, took and ate and gave to Adam and they both hid. The respect for God will was denied and they listen to Satan. God restored their relationship by giving them consequences for their sinning against God. Now life is much more difficult and we need the Lord as Satan is still doing all he can to upset women and men in a loving relationship working together for the good of both. 3. The design of the Gospel is to win souls to Christ. Letting Him rule and reign as we read the Bible, as we are won by the word. 4. Nothing more powerful than the Bible in winning people to the Lord and the careful discharge of our duty is to communicate the Gospel. 5. Irreligion and infidelity do not dissolve the binds, nor dispense with the duties, of civil relations; the wife must discharge her duty to her own husband, through he obeys not the word.

1. Evil men are strict observers of the conversation of the professors of religion; their curiosity, envy, and jealousy, make them watch narrowly the ways and lives of good people. 2. A chaste conversation, attended with due and proper respect to everyone, is an excellent means to win them to the faith of the gospel and obedience to the word.  Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. Here are three sorts of ornaments forbidden plaiting of hair, which was commonly used by lewd women; wearing of gold, or ornaments made of gold, was a practiced by Rebecca, and Esther, and other religious women, but afterward became the attire of harlots and wicked people. Putting on of apparel, which was not forbidden, but only tools much nicety and costliness in it. Religious people should take care that their external behavior be answerable to their profession of Christianity.  It is important they must be holy in all conversation. Secondly, the outward adorning of the body is very often sensual and excessive. When you are proud of it and puffed up with it, when you dress to allure and tempt others, by your richness and immodesty, as if your wanton to show you’re a harlot, can never become a chaste Christian. Instead of the outward adorning of the body, he directs Christian wives to put on more excellent and beautiful ornaments. The hidden man of the heart; that is the souls rather than the body. Be general not corruptible, for that is what makes the soul beautiful. Imagination, memory, reason, conscience and affection all show the virtues of God’s Holy Spirit. It is the grace of God, the longer we wear it, the brighter and better it is. To have a meek and quit spirit is having an easy tempered minded, void of passion, pride and immoderate anger, discovering a quit and obliging behavior towards their husbands and families, needs to be seen. If the husband be harsh, and adverse to religion, there is no way you’re likely to win him, we need a prudent meek behavior. That is a quite spirit will make it easy for yourself, for it is visible to others and becomes an ornament to a person in the eyes of the world. It is excellent display of meekness and calmness of spirit in the sight of God, of great price. Lord help us to learn the true Christian’s chief care, lies in the right ordering and commanding of his own spirit. It is so easy to get angry and say thing that are very degrading when we give way to anger of any kind.
