The Whole duty of Man

Plainly, the conclusion of the whole matter: read Ecclesiastes 12:8-14~

8 ¶ Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.

 

9 And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.

 

10 The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.

 

11 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.

 

12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

 

13 ¶ Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

 

14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Jesus’ fishermen never went to Bible college

“ye need not that anyone teach you…”

See the verse below from 1John 2;20~

“But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things

Unction is the act of anointing. KJV has its own ‘self-help dictionary’ on verse 27~

“But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.”

Theologies and men’s doctrines may be worth looking into for several reasons, however let no one tell you that you need them to be able to understand God’s word. A lot of satan’s devising have infiltrated the congregation of God that even the bibles of the modern day are filled with lies, making them really ‘un-holy’ books. This is the very reason why we should stick with the real God’s word and His word alone (see which english bible?). With its purity and simplicity, there’s no excuse why we should pick up a commentary, a lexicon, or a bible dictionary let alone go off to study hermeneutics and the hebrew and greek as a prerequisite to fully understand what the Lord is saying.

But don’t get this wrong, I do believe we need preachers, but those that preach the gospel of peace by the word of God (not anything that’s added to it or a stripped version of it). Read Romans 10: 14-18~

14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

From verse 18, we therefore understand that the sound and words of the preaching went into and unto the ends of the world. It may not be necessarily in english but it did reach the far corners. I believe that’s where all God-loving people who read english  fit in the picture of the great work of the Lord, going out into the world and preaching the gospel to every creature. If you’re hearing this loud and clear, the call is on. God bless you.

 

Secret to True Peace revealed

True Peace revealed: read Philippians 4:3-13~

3 And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.

 

4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

 

5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

 

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

 

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

 

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

 

9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

 

10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.

 

11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

 

12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

 

13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Martha Beware! – A message to the missionaries of the world

Martha beware: If your’e a missionary for Christ working in His ministry somewhere in the outskirts of the harshest places on earth and you’re wondering why there’s a burden in your heart, listen to the Lord’s words:

Revelation 2:18-29~

18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

 

19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

 

20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

 

21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

 

22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

 

23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

 

24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.

 

25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

 

26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

 

27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

 

28 And I will give him the morning star.

 

29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

 

Above is very well the message for the servants of the Lord who are pure in their hearts full of servitude, hard work and sacrifice, burdened by the love of God for the people they serve to see salvation. But some are either unaware or unmindful of the depth of corruption around them: This is for missionaries working side by side with false religions in afflicted areas where all denominations of religious groups and ministries and social assistance are at work. Patience and faith is there but Martha need to sit by Jesus now and proclaim His words to the world, that’s what were here for.  Alongside you in your mission are wolves in sheep’s clothing, false teachers taking advantage of the weak in spirit, who care less about the soul so long as the body lives, the bible tells us: “For he that soweth in the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” – Galatians 6:13

Here’s the story of Martha: Luke 10:38-42

38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

 

39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.

 

40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

 

41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

 

42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

 

Right Christians in the wrong Church!

A message to those under this church…read Revelation 2:12~17

12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

 

13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

 

14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

 

15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.

 

16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

 

17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

 

While the ‘Mother church’ (as in mama mary) has been around for a long time with its false doctrines and heresies, we see new churches rising up in this modern time subtle and appealing: the Mega church, (curiously Pergamos’ name is defined as ‘elevation’-look it up)… a warning that though the church (people) has held fast God’s name and not denied the faith (a martyr even died while in this church), there are 2 doctrines here which the Lord warns about: the doctrine of Balaam and Nicolaitane. So-called leaders are causing the people to fall by a stumbling block and cause the others to commit sin and be turned to idols. Remember this doctrine of Balaam, we’re told that this is about wanting the rewards of wickedness rather than following or obeying God (read the story in Numbers 22-25 then 31). The leaders are casting a stumbling block for God’s people to fall away or worship in vain and sin, most commonly through vanities and temporal things, selfish things. These are very diversive doctrines, remember they’re at the seat of Satan…But the Lord tells us to ‘Repent’ and the Lord will fight against them (these in the church) with the sword of His mouth (the Bible-our only defensive weapon). He who has an ear let him hear, God has a wonderful gift to those who overcome. No one will know it except him who receives it! that’s the gift of salvation. Praise the Lord.

Message to the Rich


To the rich: A teaching of who to trust, how to think, what to do and a warning of what to avoid.
Read 1Timothy 6:

17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;

19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:

 

21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.

The first to Timothy was written from Laodicea, which is the chiefest city of Phrygia Pacatiana.

Most of the rich folks that I know when asked about God and the spiritual aspects of life and Salvation, tend to hide behind the veil of so called “science”. They put their trust in the wisdom of man about his surroundings. But it is known that a lot of what we call science is not really science but a mere plethora of theories and suppositions that have either been proven wrong before or has never been observed in the physical sense but they’re called as such because the men who studied them believe in a world view that life created itself, that there’s no God. They proclaim the knowledge that they have to be truly complicated and understanding is only achieved by learned individuals and scholars like them who have spent a lot of time studying the matter. Here in the Bible, we have been warned of the oppositions of the “Science falsely so-called”, part of the warning to the rich.
