Looking for a mountain top experience in Christ ? Then let's get serious about the Word of God
ABSOLUTE TRUTH AND THE NEED TO STUDY
The Lord is looking for disciples who are willing to receive His word. Do not discount yourself. Anyone born of God is qualified because it is God the Holy Spirit who teaches truth - Jesus promised that ! Are you willing to reconsider what you think you already know ?
'Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth'. (2Timothy 2:15)
It is my experience that the general Christian is like the treasure hunter who is happy to gather alluvial gold or pan for gold on river banks, but has no desire to dig deep for the reefs of gold that God has hidden in His Word. This saddens me because the whole thrust of the Bible is to rid the heavens and the Earth of sin, to prepare a suitable and eternal habitation for His people where they can have intimate fellowship with God; without having sin lurking in the background. God is waiting for a people that will precipitate (bring about) that wonderful moment in heavenly places when Michael the Archangel will gather the holy angels and cast all the evil angels out of heaven. (Revelation 12:1-8). On that day there will be rejoicing in the heavens,
'And the great dragon was cast out, the old serpent called Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world. He was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a great voice saying in Heaven, Now has come the salvation and power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ. For the accuser of our brothers is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night'. (Revelation 12:9-10)
Do not be deceived, dear friends. This is future. It has not happened Yet. Christ has already won the victory but it is still to be played out in the church and in the heavens. This is the burden of the Lord and has been throughout all eternity! To banish all sin into the forgetfulness of a lake of fire for evermore. Christ, the Head of the church, is waiting for the Body of Christ to do its bit - through the word and the power of the Holy Spirit.
I am an active Christian mixing freely with all denominations and love my home church. My spirit gets heavy when I discover the wide-spectrum of beliefs among fellow brothers and sisters when it comes to the Creation and other matters. Church-goers shrug their shoulder and are content to wait for the truth till the Lord gets back, not realizing the doubts they sow into other hearts, especially the young. Yet the Lord has provided everything we need to know in His WORD. For my part, I bring a fuller appreciation for the word of God from the whole word of God, from Genesis to the book of Revelation, demonstrating the harmony between the Old and New Testaments. Concerning the Creation, God has explained how and when He created if only we are willing to look into the entire book. The Lord explains what He did from the many different perspectives available, if we are ready to hear what the Spirit says to the Churches,
'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give to him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows except he who receives it '. (Revelation 2:17)
Everything in the Bible points to Christ from beginning to end. It is woven into the tapestry of the Creation and the book of Genesis where all godly doctrines begin in seed form. Even in the wilderness of the Exodus from Egypt, the rock that followed them was Christ because they all drank of the same spiritual drink ( 1 Corinthians 10:4-5). The apostle warned the Corinthians who were rather unruly themselves, that God was not pleased with all of Israel in the wilderness. They lusted after their old ways, wanted an easier way and rebelled against God. Few have the patience to sit down and listen. Not even today.
Not important many say, but nothing could be so different from the truth. All doctrines hinge one way or another on the basic doctrines that come out of the Creation record. Creation is the anchor that can steady the church. The promise of the coming of Christ to crush the serpent's head was first revealed in the opening passages of the book of Genesis. Genesis also explains why we need redemption and that we are all born in sin because we inherited not only Adam and Eve's DNA, but also their corrupted 'spiritual DNA' .
God had to perform the first blood sacrifice to cover their sins when He clothed Adam and Eve with skins. We learn of the necessity of an innocent sacrifice from righteous Abel who was murdered. We learn about rebellion against God from Cain whose many descendants formed the ungodly line that corrupted the whole world culminating in Noah's flood. Jesus linked Noah's flood to end-times. Are end-times and the coming judgment important enough for you to consider? Where will unbelievers and the lazy lukewarm end up? Not in heaven according to Revelation 21:7 and jesus. The apostle Paul pointed out that most who had been baptized unto Moses and had passed through the Red Sea, and had been delivered from the world (Egypt), but remained unbelieving and grumbled, perished in the wilderness. The apostle's word is still warning us today.
In discussing the many facets of the Creation I lean on my wide experiences as an academic researcher in the biological sciences and as a bible-believer. Many, and this is especially true of the younger generation, do not appreciate the overall tapestry of the Lord's will in the whole of Scripture. The Lord has gifted me with a fuller understanding than most bible-believers have. It is the Lord who instructed me to write it all down for you. My autobiography reveals His amazing mercy to me even before I became a Christian.
This website is dedicated to glorify God. Truth and Spirit will gather Christians into one (John Chapter 17) as He is continuing to unfold His word in these precarious times. He has gifted me with an appreciation of the Creation and His intended time-frame for world history from beginning to end.
Some churches in Australia are beginning to falter because of a number of reasons. Elements in the government are lobbying to legislate anti-Christian bills in parliament that will affect freedom in churches and Christian schools by threatening withdrawal of public funds. I am one of several test-cases used by the Australian arm of the Barnabas Fund to promote the long-held religious freedom Australia has enjoyed thus far.
Spirit and Truth will unite the Christian church, not loosely held agreements between denominations and churches on the basis that we 'won't bother you if you don't bother us'. Back in the 1980's the presbytery of a Melbourne church laid hands on me to carry forward the hope of Christian unity. The Lord confirmed this by the many precious dreams and visions He has given me. The Creation and all its implications in seed form, and the gift of love through the blood of Christ and the Holy Spirit, is my mandate and the foundation of all that is true! May the Lord reward you as you read the material on this website, laborious as some of it may be. It is not the milk of the word but then nobody can stay on milk and expect to grow up into His presence. We all need to surrender and repent where we have hindered the unfolding of the depths of the word of God.
I am but one of many voices in the world having been taught by both 'men' and God Himself. The call to arms by many trumpets will raise and clothe the dried up bones in the valleys of confusion. (Ezekiel 37:1-14). The time of the Feast of Trumpets is not far off. We are the trumpets. Passover and Pentecost have been literally fulfilled at Calvary and in the upper room, respectively; the time is approaching for the Feasts of Tabernacles and the Day of Atonement to be fulfilled in the church. In ancient Israel it began with the blowing of trumpets.
Why the emphasis on the whole word of God? Because the enemy knows that once there is unity in doctrine and action, He will be cast from the heavens and lose his current access to heavenly places (Revelations Chapter 12). The body of Christ has an immensely huge role to play in cleansing out the heavens. The angels will do the actual task. The battle has already been won and is a foregone conclusion. Our triumph is assured through the blood of the Lamb. Nevertheless, there is a walk set before us for its literal fulfillment. The victory is ours! God promised.
I deduce the age of the Earth, by also appealing to the precise measurements of the temples as given to Moses and King David, and to the symbolic meanings of numbers in the scripture (Biblical Numerology). God put numbers for a specific reason into the bible. Certainly a diversity of translations enrich our understanding of the Word of God, but translations that convert cubits to meters and feet, and other measures such as coinage into dollars or pounds, etc., rob the reader from truly understanding the deeper messages that God has deliberately woven and hidden into the scriptures. When God sent ten plagues upon Egypt it is significant why He sent ten and not some other number!
The best way to start is by growing in our understanding of God. May I therefore suggest that you select 'The Trinity Explained' or find it on the home menu under 'MORE' ?
