Just a daily testimony and prayer

Father in Jesus name I forgive and remit the sins of all against me, in observance of the way our brother Jesus walked.

And I also thank you, Father, for your hosts of powers and angels that you have set at our disposition in Jesus name.

I thank you for keeping me upright in this firestorm, and for maintaining my mind in the onslaught of insanity.

Glory and Praise to my Father the God of Hosts, and to my Brother, The King of Kings , our Lord Jesus.

Wishes and Fears

This is my fleshy rant for today.

Let him who knows the most deep and hidden wishes in the hearts of man grant me all my wishes and keep me from all my fears……

I just hope my fears don’t coincide with my wishes, that would be a “minor technical difficulty” indeed,

even so, his will be done on this earth as it is in the third heavens, Amen.

New Light

Okay, today I decided to go out and about and see how beautiful the winter is , and naturally , Gods works are wondrous, and I have to marvel every time I see them.

It is a cold sunny day and even the people look great and the things that they have made to rise their stature also look good, of course, because ALL is Gods handiwork, everything made by man … yes… who made man? So everything is the Lords.

But to have that radiance the people need the sun? Or is it just the new light with which I am seeing people, and the light that I see in people.

All is well and all is made by the Lord or something he made, because the lord Is Light (and LIFE), and there is none besides him.

This is what I have come to see, and that we should always help others (heap coals of fire on their heads, so they should always walk with their own light and warmth, that will soften up even steel so that Gods workers may be able to mold that soul).

And this is what God sent Jesus to testify, that all are worth saving , because all are beautiful and for all he has plans ( God wants all to be saved but not all will be saved, some will not understand and turn away from Gods workers, hopefully he will send more workers later on when their “stiff necks” have been softened up a little.

Glory to our Father the God of Hosts, and to our Brother, The King of Kings, Our Lord Jesus.

World without end Father, in the name of Jesus.
World without end, Amen.

Blessed is The Lord

Blessed is the Lord God of Hosts, our Father, who purposed his Son Jesus Lord of Lords, our Lord, to break the works of the contender, and enable us in Jesus name to subdue this world, AND to manage it, AND to conquer it AND to Multiply the purpose of our Lord Jesus AND Manifest the The WILL of our GOD, the God of Hosts in this world as it is in the Third Heavens.

Praises and Blessing to our Lord Jesus, and greetings to all his Saints, Love to the Body of Christ.

World without end Father, in the name of Jesus.
World without end, Amen.

Ask God to reveal himself to you.

This is what I use to ask God for his riches. To give me his revelation. To show me all that he is and wants for and of me.

I ususally pray this 5 times in the morning, before reading the bible, several times during they day, whenever and however I feel called to.

This is common usage to ask for revelation of God; EPH 1:17-23, EPH 3:16-21, COL 1:9-15.

My name is inserted in the verses, wherever you see “Errol”, read your name instead.

[EPH 1:17] That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto me, Errol, the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
[EPH 1:18] The eyes of my understanding be enlightened; that I, Errol may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
[EPH 1:19] And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
[EPH 1:20] Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
[EPH 1:21] Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
[EPH 1:22] And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
[EPH 1:23] Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. (KJV)

[EPH 3:16] That he would grant me, Errol, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
[EPH 3:17] That Christ may dwell in my heart by faith; that I, Errol, being rooted and grounded in love,
[EPH 3:18] May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
[EPH 3:19] And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that I, Errol might be filled with all the fulness of God.
[EPH 3:20] Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
[EPH 3:21] Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. (KJV)

[COL 1:9] For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for me, Errol, and to desire that I, Errol might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
[COL 1:10] That I, Errol might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
[COL 1:11] Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
[COL 1:12] Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made me, Errol meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
[COL 1:13] Who hath delivered me, Errol from the power of darkness, and hath translated me, Errol into the kingdom of his dear Son:
[COL 1:14] In whom I, Errol have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
[COL 1:15] Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: (KJV)

So go ahead, substitute Errol with your own name, and ask.

Creation vs. Evolution

Creation and Evolution. I keep reading how creation is opposite to evolution and that creation OR evolution must be the truth, but not both. Both sides of the argument, the creationists and the evolutionists, perpetuate this controversy by calling each other names and hiding deeper and deeper behind their so called ‘knowledge’. This only leads to dissent and hate, so bear with me as I explain how my simple mind explains creation and evolution from my simple understanding of the bible.

Is there a difference between creation and evolution?

Creationists say that  God created man in his own image in Gen 1:26 and Gen 1:27

Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (KJV)

and the creationists are totally right!

Evolutionists say prove it! What we can prove is that when man first was, he did not have the form that we have today. So obviously we have evolved from our primal form to what we are today. As I suppose most of us have heard of Darwin and his evolution theory I will not go into that but I will limit myself to say that the evolutionists are totally right!

Here we have two different groups of people with seemingly opposite views taking stand against each other under the influence of princes and principalities (the Lords contender).
Reality is, as in most cases where there is conflict, the arguments are not totally contradicting, but only seemingly contradicting, and presented as diametrically opposed, as everything the Lords contender presents us (Gen 3:1-5).
Gen 1:26 and Gen 1:27 are about the creation of man before he was formed out of the earth, it is about the creation of the essence of man, of his spirit, which was created in the likeness of God, and as God has no earthy body, anything created in his likeness can not refer to an earthy body.
Scholars before me have all come to this same conclusion and while I mostly do not concur with the established views, in this instance they are very right indeed.

‘Image’ is a word taken from sensible things, and denotes likeness in outward form, while the material may be different. ‘Likeness’ is a more general term, indicating resemblance in any quality, external or internal. It is here explanatory of image, and seems to show that this term is to be taken in a figurative sense, to denote not a material but a spiritual conformity to God.
Albert Barnes 1)Albert Barnes’ Notes on the Bible by Albert Barnes (1798-1870)

 

In our image, after our likeness – what is here said refers to his soul. This was made in the image and likeness of God. Now, as the Divine Being is infinite, he is neither limited by parts, nor definable by passions; therefore he can have no corporeal image after which he made the body of man. The image and likeness must necessarily be intellectual; his mind, his soul, must have been formed after the nature and perfections of his God.
Adam Clarke 2)Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible by Adam Clarke, LL.D., F.S.A., (1715-1832)

 

God’s image upon man consists in these three things: – 1. In his nature and constitution, not those of his body (for God has not a body), but those of his soul. – 2. In his place and authority: Let us make man in our image, and let him have dominion. – 3. In his purity and rectitude. God’s image upon man consists in knowledge, righteousness, and true holiness, Eph_4:24; Col_3:10. He was upright, Ecc_7:29. He had an habitual conformity of all his natural powers to the whole will of God.
Matthew Henry 3)Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible by Matthew Henry (1662 – 1714)

Yes, the creation of man is the creation of his essence, of his soul. And this is the most important part of man, the part that makes him indistinguishably different from all other animals, his soul that is connected to God, because God made Man in his image and likeness.

The Evolutionists state that man essentially developed from the primal ooze of the earth and is one of the evolutional branches of animals. Over the years his body has adapted to be the one that is the most adaptable to its surroundings.
And this evolutionist theory I can fully accept, because I can trace it back in the bible (Gen 2:7). It does not contend with the creation of man (in essence), it is just the development of the ‘matter’ or ‘form’ of man.

Gen 2:7

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (KJV)

The key here is formed, and checking out the original text it is formed like a potter. Has a potter ever created something at once, in an instant? or does he knead and adapt, continually molding until he has the perfect shape and form as he devised?

These are two separate issues, one is the creation of man in essence and the other is the making of his three dimensional form.

The importance of creation/evolution to God

Now, some will ask; why does the bible not address the evolution of the form of man in more detail giving it a more predominant place in the bible? How can you expect us to believe that one simple word out of the many is the only one devoted to the whole physical evolution of man?

To understand this we must acknowledge that the bible is a God inspired scripture and as such will emphasize the things that God finds important for us to consider, and not give great importance to things of lesser value.

And yes, as the bible goes, our eternal life is much more important and longer (everlasting!) than the ‘moment’ of time that we are in this world in these bodies, so to God, for his purpose of sanctifying us, our bodies hold little value compared to our souls, they are only a vessel like a packing box that is used to send a parcel to someone else, only used to get us through the tests of this life, in the next life our bodies are no longer needed and as this life is but a ‘shadow’ no real importance should be given to it.

The bible attests to this in;

Psalms 144:4 Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away. KJV)

 

Psalms 102:11 My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
Psalms 102:12 But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations. (KJV)

 

Psa 109:23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust. (KJV)

All these Psalms concur in several things, but in this context the important one is that the days of man (his lifespan) is but a fleeting shadow. And ideally, that is also the importance we should put on it.

The importance of creation/evolution to man

But man, man is vain, our time is but a fleeting illusion but we are so vain. We cry and sometimes I get angry when things do not go well with this body of mine in this world, we will all grow old and wither away. So vain!
So of course we place the coming about of our body on a pedestal, this is very important! Anyone who truly knows us should know that! The Evolution of our body is the most important thing ever! vain.
To us the evolution theory is important because it is about OUR bodies, the first thing we see about each other and if we do not make an effort, the only thing we see about each other. And because we are vain we try to categorize people depending on their bodies, just as we do with their clothing or whatever packaging material, exactly the same.

The deception of the contender

And that is where the Lords contender sees a great chance to stir up strife and discontent, start a discussion and some trouble between men. On the one hand he has the men that are vain about their dogma and on the other hand men vain with their science that, of course, is superior to dogma, vain.
How long did men believe that Gods purpose was for us to murder one another in his name even though his commandments say “do not murder”?
How many times have scientists held up theories until proven wrong?
We will be able to prove it all and do it all (except for “the tree of life” of course). But until then I have yet to see something occur that can not be explained or predicted by the bible. And once we catch up with our science, well that is just great, then we can also explain it in our own words, but we must not forget where we first saw it, in the bible, by Gods word.

But the contender, he notices the opportunity that this vanity gives him and he pits one man against another, with no ultimate gain for man, but only so that man will suffer over trivialities in this life, commit sin and lessen his chances of eternal life. That is all the contender cares about, for his chances of eternal life are already lost.

I would so like that men could see this game for what it is.

So he spins his weave of deception, “they say God created man just like you look now in one day, they must be mad, certainly everyone can go to a museum and see that man evolved to his current state? They just want to hold back the development of mankind so they can abuse you”.
“The heretics are saying that they have a theory that explains that man did not come from God, because they do not believe in God, and their theory is geared to prove that God had nothing to do with the creation of man, and by doing so disprove the existence of God”

Fears, the fears of poor wretched little men.

So do not let yourself be misguided by the games of the contender nor the opinions of men , not even of me! Get yourself a bible, make some time, open your bible, ask God to give you the word, and then read and enjoy his word.
