The Sunday Bun–from Peru

Sunday Go To Meeting Bun 

From Peru!

“And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.”
Luke 22:44 (NKJV)
Jesus Christ experienced hematohidrosis while praying in the garden of Gethsemane before his crucification as mentioned in the Defenders Bible by Physician Luke as “and being in anguish he prayed more earnestly and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.”

I can’t imagine what He went through, what he must have been thinking as he prayed in the garden. As God, He knows all things. He knows what awaits Him. Yet, He knows this is the only way to set the human race free from the Sin-Code and the grip of the Fallen Cherub, Lucifer. As a man he must recoil from knowing the torture he is about to experience.

At some point an angel is dispatched to comfort Him. I wonder what they said to one another because surely there must have been words of encouragement sent from the Father.

He must have been weary and knowing what awaits Him, somewhat apprehensive, manifesting in the blood-sweat. He knows He is The Lamb of God and He is about to take away the sins of the world.

There is also one part of this story that has always intrigued me. Who is witnessing these events and later re-telling them? It’s not the disciples, as they are all asleep? Could it have been Mary Magdalene? Perhaps, as she is the first person He appears to and we know she loved Him and He her. However, there was no DaVinci Code nonsense going on here and He most certainly did not have any form of physical relations with her.

He agonized and then He sets his face like flint and goes willingly to what He was born into this world to do. No man takes His life from Him, He lays it down willingly…

It is by the Blood of Jesus that our sins are forgiven. By His blood we are saved. By His blood we are cleansed and made new. By His blood we are sealed into the heavenly kingdom. By His blood…. By His blood.

Never forget the price that was paid to set us free.

Sunday Bun – Looking in Both Directions

And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die. 14Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die. 15And Nathan departed unto his house. And the LORD struck the child that Uriah’s wife bare unto David, and it was very sick. 16David therefore besought God for the child; and David fasted, and went in, and lay all night upon the earth. 17And the elders of his house arose, and went to him, to raise him up from the earth: but he would not, neither did he eat bread with them. 18And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said, Behold, while the child was yet alive, we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him that the child is dead? 19But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore David said unto his servants, Is the child dead? And they said, He is dead. 20Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the LORD, and worshipped: then he came to his own house; and when he required, they set bread before him, and he did eat.

Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread. 22And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether GOD will be gracious to me, that the child may live? 23But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.

(2 Samuel 12)

The Bun:
There is a lot in this story and I could go with it in many directions. I could discuss King David’s sin. I could discuss the judgment from a holy God. I could write about the supernatural events that are taking place throughout the chapter. However, I’m going to focus on David’s ability to look in both directions.
David’s  son was stricken and David prayed that the child might live. He was caught in the tension of two extremes. On one hand, if the child lived, then David would watch his son grow and mature into a man. On the other, if the child died, he knows he will see him again when he passes from this earthly life… but there will be sorrow.
David was not afraid to face both death and life. He was not afraid to look in both directions.
We pray that the Lord i.e. Jesus would direct our steps that He will be the Lord of our life, that all things work together for good.
Yet, when faced with adversity we all to often collapse in our faith.
No mater what the circumstances are He is in control. David’s son died. He was taken. David dealt with it.
Job lost everything and yet in the midst of it God shows us and instructs him.
We’ve often heard the phrase: let go and let God.
It’s true but hard to practice because many of us really don’t believe that Jesus loves us and cares for us and no matter what happens He will work all things together for good.
What are you facing?
Don’t be afraid to look in both directions.
Please keep these folks in Prayer.

Philip goes to Azotus!

And the eunuch said to Philip, “About whom, I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?” Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this Scripture he told him the good news about Jesus. And as they were going along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “See, here is water! What prevents me from being baptized?” And he commanded the chariot to stop, and they both went down into the water, Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him. And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord carried Philip away, and the eunuch saw him no more, and went on his way rejoicing. But Philip found himself at Azotus, and as he passed through he preached the gospel to all the towns until he came to Caesarea.

I was reading this passage this morning and I decided to comment on it on the BLOG!

I want to call your attention to this verse: the Spirit of the Lord carried Philip away, and the eunuch saw him no more, and went on his way rejoicing. But Philip found himself at Azotus,

I love it! The Holy Spirit moves Philip from one place to another, literally miles away from where Philip was with the eunuch! How does that work?

Our Bibles are full of supernatural occurrences which transcend time and space. How was Philip moved? Was some sort of vehicle used like a “divine taxi” of sorts? Was it like a star-trek transporter? LOL! (I’m kidding) Did an angel carry him from one place to another?

How long did it take to travel from one place to an other? Did time stop? Did Philip find himself instantly in Azotus or did a duration of time pass? (People back then did not have watches…!) Did Philip transcend our space-time continuum? It seems to me that he did. God is the author of time and thus has no problem transcending its bounds!

All to often we read our Bibles and fail to grasp the supernatural aspect that is found all throughout its pages.

God is still on the throne and He can move us from one place to another if He chooses to do so, just like Philip. When He shows up, everything changes.

With that in mind. Some of us may need to be re-located in our thinking, in our ministry,  in our workplace. Father God knows this and just like Philip has the power to transcend all our circumstances.

This is the God of our Bibles. This is God we serve. He is holy, might and awesome in His power.

Maranatha!

For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: Romans 7;18
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.  John 15:5
We live life in constant tension. Here’s what I mean.
We are saved by Jesus’s death on the cross, by His blood sacrifice the price was paid for the sin of all mankind. We are “washed” clean in His blood, which of course, is a great mystery.
We are saved by grace and not of works. We are born again and are new creatures in Christ.
Yet, we sin. As Paul admonishes us we do the things we don’t want to do and then he states this:
For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing.
I remember when I first read this I was appalled and angry. I didn’t want to admit this. I thought it was way over the top, and to harsh. Now, after almost 37 years of walking out my salvation I realize all to well how true this statement is.
My first mentor Wayne Kendell used to say this: “Another layer of the onion, Marzulli! Another layer!”
What Wayne meant was that like the many layers of an onion so is the depth of the human soul and with it our depravity. One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit that we seldom discuss is that He —The Holy Spirit—will lead us into all truth. I believe this can be applied to the “truth” about ourselves. In other words how far our depravity really goes. This is one reason why we as Christians are always under construction.
I have found out and testify here that I can do nothing without Him and that in my flesh  really is no good thing.
Back to the tension.
So while He is making me into the man He wants me to be, I walk with His peace but wrestle with sin. I have to watch myself at all times. I have to check all thoughts. I have to guard my eyes and my heart.
This is why Paul tells us: All creation groans to be set free.
So with this ongoing tension in our lives we learn to rest in Him. We learn to rely on Him. We come to the startling realization that He is the Prince of Peace, the guardians of our souls, the One who was sent to set us free.
He is in the process of setting us free and this takes time. However, at some point, when we rise to meet Him in the air, we will all change instantly. We will be like Him. The tension we now live in will be gone. We will be clothed in our immortal bodies and will be The Lord forever.
In the meantime…  As we live each day we draw close to Him. We acknowledge that we can do nothing without Him. We wait on Him to guide out steps. We present our bodies as a living sacrifice.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:3
We live in a world where the Darwinian paradigm and world-view reigns supreme. This “theory” instructs us that there is no God, no supernatural, no creation, no savior. Instead, we are told life, in its myriad of forms around us, was a product of random chance. That organisms started out as single-celled creatures and then slowly became more complex.
This is in stark contrast to the verse I posted above. We are told that Jesus created all things. That all things were made by Him and without his direct involvement was not anything made that was made.
The Berean Bible Translation states this:
All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.
What is the Truth? What world-view is the correct one?
For those of us who believe in the literal translation of the Bible we hold the words above dear to us. We know, that we know, that we know, that Jesus is our creator. That he holds the universe together and at some point he will roll it up like a scroll! (How does that happen? inquiring minds want to know!)
The Neo-Darwinists realize that Darwin’s original theory has a lot of holes in it and so they are looking to the concept of panspermia—the idea that life was seeded here by an advanced civilization from somewhere out  in space—as the new Darwinism.
In this re-working of the worn-out Darwinian theory there are still no miracles, no supernatural, no need for salvation or a savior, no absolutes. That somewhere, in some far-away galaxy, a race of people evolved and created life in a lab and then blasted it out into the universe. By chance it made its way to earth and life began…
Of course this is circular reasoning as it begs the question, where did this so-called advanced civilization come from?
In 2 Thessalonians we are told:
 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2 Thessalonians 2:11
What cause?  because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them.
What is the truth? That Jesus created everything and He came as our savior to set us free.
In short. Much of the human race has rejected the truth and instead replaced it with Darwinian lie.
To wrap it up. The strong delusion is coming and I believe it will be the revealing of the so-called extraterrestrial presence. The big question is this. When will this happen. If disclosure happens with an announcement without huge one-mile craft floating above some city, then what will be the fall out from such an announcement? If, on the other hand a mile-wide craft appears will the church still be here?
I have recently come to the conclusion that when we go up, they show up. When we go up they come down.
The strong delusion is coming. The good news for the remnant who is watching and waiting for HIS return and our meeting Him in the air is this. We won’t experience it as we will have met the Lord in the air. This is our blessed hope.
Maranatha!

 

 

 

Sunday Go to Meeting Bun!

The Bun!

I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him.

John 5:43

There are many different interpretations of this verse. Let’s examine it and see what we can glean from it.

First, Jesus is making a statement, stating a fact. He tells the Jewish leaders, the Pharisees who are gathered and asking Him who he is, that He, Jesus, comes in His Fathers name, i.e. Jehovah.

Remember this, Jesus—Yeshua—means God with us. Interesting yes? We might call to remembrance when Jesus states:  He is from above. Also: Where I am going you can not follow. (At the last supper) Then: If you have seen me you have seen the Father.

It seems very clear that Jesus is making himself known to anyone who has ears to hear. He’s not playing games. In fact,  He backs these statements up by performing miracles, like raising the dead, healing the sick, casting out demons and controlling the weather—the storm He rebukes in the boat!

Then He states the second fact: … and you do not receive me.

I am reminded of this statement by what Phillip says in regard to Jesus being Messiah: Can anything good come out of Nazareth?

The Jewish leaders could not accept Jesus as Messiah. The one statement that infuriated the Jews was when Jesus declared: Before Abraham was I Am.

This is what got Him killed, because Jesus compared himself to the Father by using the word I Am. It was deliberate on His part and once again He states a fact.

Finally we get to the last statement.

If another comes in his own name, you will receive him.

Some commentators point to this verse as the Anti-Christ. While the Jews have had numerous deceivers and anti-messiahs’ throughout history, I would posit that this verse may point to THE seed of the serpent, the son of perdition, the anti-christ of the last days.

Remember, This man makes a covenant with the Jews to rebuild their Temple. This is how the world will know who the A.C. is. (Of course I hold to the view that the church will be long-gone by this time.)

If this is true that Jesus is pointing to the A.C. as the one who the Jews will receive it is a chilling statement.

In closing the Bun. Do you know Him? Is He, Jesus alive in your heart? Have you invited the Prince of Peace into your life?

If you think you know Him but you don’t know Him, then, you don’t know Him.

Jesus fulfilled numerous prophecies regarding Messiah. When we acknowledge Him who was sent—that He came in His fathers name—and confess our sins we have eternal life. We become born again. If you don’t know Him, I would ask you to sit still for a moment and reflect on todays Bun.

He stands at the door of your heart and knocks, let Him in today…

Dear L A –
I just learned tonight that my daughter-in-law, Jackie, has stage two cervical
cancer. She is married to my oldest son, Jonathan. They are both in their 30’s
and have two children, Chloe age 4 yrs and Silas age 18 mos. In addition to
this, Jon just lost his job.
I know that you know people all over the world. I am asking that God’s perfect
will be done for this struggling family. There are also spiritual needs as well.
