Sunday Go to Meeting Bun!

BUN!Sunday Bun

L. A. Marzulli

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.  “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35

Notice what Yashua/Jesus says here, that people will know we His disciples by the love we have for one another.  This is our ultimate witness to those around us.  Being His disciple is not about how many books we’ve read, or all the head knowledge or degrees that hang on our walls.

Paul admonishes us:  

Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that “We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds up.  1 Corinthians 8:1

Sometimes we can lose sight of Jesus’ admonition and become absorbed in what we think we know.  However, I would posit that in the end it all comes down to the love that we show to those around us.  This love can not be manufactured.  It’s not something we can somehow turn on by ourselves.  This love–Agape in the Greek—comes from the indwelling of the Spirit of the Living God.  He can fill us with this love on a daily basis, but we can also choose not to be filled.

Holding bitterness in out hearts toward anyone or any circumstance in our lives, can be a deterrent to God’s love working through us.  In other words if we are consumed by bitterness it’s hard for His love to come through us, as we have chosen to block it by our own actions.

We love each other because He first loved us.  We love each other because the same spirit that resides in us resides in others who have believed in Him who was sent to redeem the whole world, through his giving of his body on Calvary for the saving of our souls.

This love can be a witness to those around us.  People watch us  to see how we react.  When a situation doesn’t go our way do we react in love?  When  someone cuts us off on the freeway do we pray for the driver or flip him or her the bird?

The Body of the Anointed One—or those who believe on Him who was sent—is at best fractured.  Recently I posted on the Cepher Bible and a certain radio host blasted away at me essentially hitting me over the head with the King James Only claim.  He never contacted me, he just blasted away.  How does that match up with the above phrase?  I love the King James, but I read many translations including the Interlinear Bible.  I realize the importance of scripture and certainly put the King James Bible in a class by itself, but does this warrant the blasting away that happened?

In some ways it’s not what we accomplish or how “right” we may be, it’s the interaction between people that we encounter along the way.  It’s about the love we show toward one another.

I’ll close with the KJV of 1 Corithians 13. (Please substitute love for charity.)

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there beknowledge, it shall vanish away.

9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

In the end it all comes down to the love we show each other….

  1. Amen L.A. You hit the nail on the head ! Yahusha blesses you every day ! Your life reflects it ! I too hunger for the TRUTH . I bought the Cepher and for one love seeing Gods name restored . I like the lay out of books . Don’t want to get into all that but we should always be on the hunt for truth , no matter how many twists and turns it takes . Thank goodness for people who hunt for the oldest of the oldest manuscripts to correct God (YAHUAH ) Word. And put back what someone took out . I wish I was as smart as most people think they are ….. Keep up the good work , we appreciate your work . Going to hear Nehemia Gordon today here in Phoenix . You know that will be an awesome 3 hours !

    • About a week ago I went into my local Christian book store and happened to notice “The Names of God Bible Version”. i never noticed this one before, but it was a great way to see the SPECIFIC NAME that was used in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and how it converted the more “generic term of GOD” … to more precise Elohim, Yahweh, yahuah, Yeshua, and others. i thought it was well done and really gave more meaning and understanding to the text of Scripture so as to know WHICH NAME is being emphasized in that verse of Scripture. Sure makes a difference!

      I can do the same thing at BibleHub.com …. but having it in print as you read it does make it less tedious and more revealing. I wasn’t gonna pay $50 some bucks for this one benefit in this Bible version, but it was worth seeing in print.

      I think the Cepher adds many more tools for study……..and THAT is what is beneficial for those that desire to attain a copy.

      There is NO exhausting The Scriptures … as they are ETERNAL TRUTHS that we will be uncovering for ETERNITY.

    • G’day Kirk,
      Was that the “Proper Name Version Of The King James Bible” you saw? If so, I have it and it is my favourite bible of choice to use personally.
      It’s just a pity that is so large, heavy and of all things a paper back! I’d like to get it bound properly with a hard cover…

    • Bruce….

      i will have to go back this week and write it down in order to be more specific for you. The names were in a GOLDEN LETTERING.
      It was about 1 1/2 inch thick with a blue cover. But for $50 + … it was not “that important” for me to get “golden lettering”.

      But i will check out which version it was done in…..I think it was the NKJV…..definite maybe.😉

  2. L.A. you are one of a kind. All out. When I was just one year old in Jesus my Sheppard, Dave Ward told me, “Rinaldo be all out, and what ever mistakes you make, Jesus will cover you. Forty years latter I am still the same. Some of us have to be all out to love and serve Jesus. Others can just dip their toes in the swiming pool to test the temperature of the water, and if it’s comfortable they will jump in.The world is not a comfortable place. It is hostile. And violent men take it by force, in love of course. Right on L.A. How else will we get fine tuned.

  3. Love, in various versions…

    - New International: It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
    
    - New Living: It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.
    
    - English Standard: It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful
    
    - New American Standard: does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,
    
    - King James: Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil
    

    …also speaks the truth in love
    …blesses and prays for enemies
    …suffers patiently even when wronged by enemies
    …forgives 70×7, and more

    God’s own just love also…
    – sets a time and season for all things (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
    – dusts off feet when rejected and moves on (Mt 10:14, Mk 6:11, Lk 9:5,10:11, Acts 13:51)
    – contains the contagion of sin forever in the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20)

    Loving others is as easy as helping with their ministries, even if only ways that take a bit of time.

    • Ka’nits of Ka’nibiru

      As the veil thins with age (receding hairline), awaiting its approach, the
      Ka’nits armed with their holy hand grenades hold back the bunny forces of the
      Leporids-Anunnaki (receding hareline), as the burning dung ball of the 4th dimension
      encroaches upon the doorstep of the department of celestial welfare. [anthem playing in background]

    • Well, perhaps it’s not just me … being aspie … and reacting “PTSD ready to strangle” anything that thumps.

      Instead of a heard of hippos, I suspect my upstairs neighbors are a launch of lepuses (lepii?).

      How come you, O AzureCeu, to deep disquiet toward the long eared kind?

    • Nome, this might explain my passion:

      Also when I talk rabbits it makes Rose stick her nose
      out of the hole she hides in, in curiosity.

      Btw, she has a clandestine rabbit breeding program
      in her backyard.🐱

    • Thanks! And yes, I’ve prayed today that their options broaden and they get a new car and better housing for the 3 children, (all the while feeling a bit guilty since I have a dog in the petition). While avoiding complaint that Child Protective Services should investigate having 6 residents and a chihuahua in a one bedroom apartment … which is clearly family abuse as proven by the ritual angry shouting on sunday mornings. To which my phone call to said authorities netted: that unless there are feces & filth it probably doesn’t rise to the level of investigation….. That said, there is progress on the relative absence of the stray dog that the male parent feeds (and reportedly has attempted to breed to the chihuahua, per my lateral neighbors). O the telenovella….

      I see there might be a cross link to your gargoylian adventures…

    • Re: “gargoylian adventures”

      I was hoping you were not going to mention that, as it brings back the suffering of the purgatorial
      roids that I had received after climbing to the top of the cathedral in the cold morning Parisian wind.
      I well deserve my own portrait on the door panel, nonetheless I did get some get some good Gargoyle and Gargirl pictures. In this case the rabbit won “in the end” thats why he got his own door panel :þ

      Re: “ritual angry shouting on sunday mornings”

      I was programing a T.V. tuner today and as I was reviewing the numerous Brazilian channels that it logged and being that there are around 5 charismatic stations, low and behold there was Benny the Hinn passing on the priestly prosperity mantle to the Brazilian preacher as the congregation rolled and barked in the isles.:facepalm:

      Even Though I like chihuahuas to an extent, I would say they are generally demon possessed but perhaps in the upper room case you might be having a charismatic prosperity party going on?

      More research is required.

    • I can be patient. Last week, two “problem personnel” on our staff hit transitions (and likely exit). One was a chronic user caught in a facility wide screening; and the other is leaving amicably for better prospects. We’ll see tomorrow if any others from the party crowd will likewise be shown the door. Both cases greatly simplify things for me. “All good things come from God!”

      And no doubt I’m getting “noise conditioning” even if that means just learning the many new ways to deal with such.

      As for rabbit pellets, I trust they’re good for a garden, and we can be thankful rabbits weren’t hybridized with egyptian long skulls…. though that could tend to explain their fondness for beetles.

      On an “on topic” note: if you get opportunity regale us with insider info into indigenous translations of the Bible. I’m assuming one need not translate the KJV into ancient Incan or Quechan to target the 10 or so languages still pending? And have you come across any knot use or knot like symbols used for native languages?

    • I have not delved too much into Indigenous group languages. From my limited experience many of the tribes have picked up
      Portuguese and Spanish to a limited degree, however isolated tribes are well isolated. All along the Amazon river one end
      to the other is dotted with population here and there and its funny to see, when you normally see a small settlement along
      the river of two houses the third is a church, and almost every house has a satellite dish, this also extends to some remote
      tribes.

      I have not ran across any knot useage by accident nor have I researched it on purpose.

      Check out this report:
      -http://www.lausanne.org/content/lga/2014-01/mission-among-indigenous-groups-in-brazil-lessons-challenges-and-opportunities

      MoreRover
      I would be surprised if the KJV has anything to do with any other language
      of the bible? Interesting question however. Nevertheless lets pretend that
      English is the God’s preeminent language of choice.:facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:
      Also lets pretend we can be more spiritual by speaking Hebrew or Greek or getting
      God’s secret name.:facepalm:

      His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
      -Revelation 19:12

    • Thank you, kindly, AzureCeu!

      That’s a very telling report. How many places in the world can claim indigenous populations speaking solely native languages? (rhetorically speaking)

      There is also a challenge to use the Scripture, as well as to have it:

      – There are 17 ethnic groups with access to portions of the Bible in their mother tongue, but with no believers among them.
      – Another 25 groups have good access to Scripture and a local church among them, but no indigenous leadership.

      There is a need for better integration between Bible translation, church planting, and leadership training.

      More pointedly… How long can it be before the mission to preach the Kingdom of Heaven into all the world is complete? (again rhetorically speaking) Even if the enemy keeps trying to muddy up the definitions — the point was to preach — not necessarily to receive.

      I believe the spanish Reina Valera was based on the KJV. It certainly reads like it.

      And for those playing the home game… there apparently was an enormous (million plus) population in the ancient Amazon area that had interactions with west coast cultures. (of what we so recently call South America) Under those jungles are all kinds of earthworks, many of which have been exposed in recent deforestations (jungle clearing).

      Pastor Hoggard needs to find a Bible Translation project down in the Amazon to support — if not visit.

      Let’s pray that our Lord so task Bethel, since there’s clearly an opening!

    • ps. File under the heading, “A Word to the Wise.”

      This was the first time I’ve seen all employees screened for contraband left in a public use area, though I’ve been in several random checks over the years. So if you have problems with folks that don’t abide by work rules … they’d should at least consider that someone like themselves can get everyone forced to be checked quite easily. It’s interesting to likewise consider the many different situations to which that process could apply.

  4. Amen. Thought provoking and heart convicting. This blog is timely. A truth we should all live by daily. Love is a reflection of His perfect grace and mercy. This was a perfect reminder for me personally.

  5. Dear LA.,,this Bun seams as though you went deep into my heart and soul , and spoke a word that I needed to be told,,,sometimes God does use a old hunting dog,, to deliver words to my soul. thank you LA., I needed to hear this sermon. George

  6. When we KNOW and EXPERIENCE God’s Love for us, …we can then be more secure to share that same love with others!

  8. In the spirit of love, LA, please pass a suggestion along to Gary Stearman regarding production gear for Prophecy Watchers—please consider adding an audio limiter or compressor to the sound chain. Your voice was distorted a number of times.
    It’s a good show so don’t let it fall into the “good enough for gospel” category when it comes to production values.

    • For my aspie over-sensibilities which helps blunt the caterwauling in Sharon Gilberts podcast intros… I use the Rolls Stereo Program Limiter on the audio output of my desktop computer. About $60 via the web store that threatening aerial bombardments for deliveries.

      And yes, that would not help ungarble any previously amp clipped antics of Mr. Marzulli in various characters’ voices.

  9. LA, how should I respond to our Pastor who is sort of open to Genesis6 and will not say either way whether he believes in the Nephillum. There is not a church in Quadcity area of Iowa that shares our beliefs. We truly are a peculiar people here. Should we stay in the church or worship at home? Should we just stay silent with pastor and continue to speak to him in love or drop the subject ? We are spirit filled christians attending a Baptist church since all others are Laodician churches. We are so discourage with no fellowship.

    • And for those who need a less visually graphic version…

    • Hello.

      Watched the beginning of S.O.U.A – all the clapping reminded me of Romans 1: 32.

      Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. (KJV)

      Although they know God’s just requirement—that those who practice such things deserve to die—they not only do these things but even applaud others who practice them. (ISV)

      Pastor JD Farag sums up the Address, very well.

  10. Thank you, LA, re Sunday Bun.

    Not forgotten:

    “http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-01-25/auschwitz-survivors-remember-day-of-liberation-70-years-ago/6043688”

    • repost by way of hiscity…
      – basically, a collection of concentration camp footage from all the armed forces involved in the aftermath of WWII focused on dealing with the bodies and remains … such as massive piles of brushes, hair, toys, partly burned or frozen bodies … and including editing of some footage by Alfred Hitchcock (no joke)

      The film Holocaust: Night Will Fall gives a stark depiction of the atrocities that have and will continue to come to earth at the hands of the damned.

      ~http://www.theartsdesk.com/film/holocaust-night-will-fall-channel-4

      That said, were we to see the scope of atrocities of the billion offspring terminated by their parents in the last 50 years — the holocaust would seem trivial by comparison. Who has kept those videos? And who will take them?

      Their point was that if we forget — then a night like that will again fall.

      It’s obvious that by in large the world has ignored both the holocaust of the Jews in Germany — and the holocaust of babies since Roe V. Wade — world wide. A much larger atrocity is coming.

  11. Romans 14:7-12

    For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
    – For whether we live, we live unto the Lord;
    – and whether we die, we die unto the Lord:
    – whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.

    For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived,
    – that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
    – But why dost thou judge thy brother?
    – or why dost thou set at nought thy brother?

    For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
    – For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord,
    – every knee shall bow to me,
    – and every tongue shall confess to God.

    So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

  12. This captures the true beauty of our world created by GOD. The glory and power of the song and images are outstanding. PS….play it LOUD !!🙂

  13. Dear LA Marzulli, Thank you for the blogs you send to us and all the work it takes. Great will be your reward. God bless you L A for the work you are doing and I pray that souls will be saved through your witness. I loved the verse our congregation said out loud at the end of our church service, “Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and all that is within me, bless HIS holy name”.

    When the choices are hard & we are battle scarred, in Jesus name we will go on!
