Know When Your Done

On A Boat Full Of Fish Nets
Floating But Getting Nowhere

Jesus Appears At The Sea Of Galilee - Another Draught Of Fishes ...

We'd Soon Greet A Stranger


The Third Time Since His Death.


All Night We 'Took Turns Starin.'


At The Water Still And Lifeless

Then From Distant Shoreline, He Made A Request

And Though He'd Given His Life

To Resurrecting Bodies

Knowing Where Mens Hearts Were

By Looking Past Their Eyes

It Didn't Take Much To Knowin


That We Had Caught No Fishies


Here's What You Should Do, Said He


Now Try The Starboard Side.

So We Did Just As He Said


And Took In A Great Number


On Shore He Lit A Fire

His Own Catch To Fry.

(Jn. 21)

The Things He Did In This Life


The World Cannot Contain Them. (Jn. 21)


Whether He's Talking Sheep Or Fish


There's Always The Human Side.

'You've Got To Know When To Cast Em'

'Know When To Blast 'em'

(John 2:12-25; Matt. 23)


'Know' If 'To Walk Away'

(Luke 4:23-30; Matt. 10:11-15)


Know When Your Done

 


Not Well Done:

 

Don't Throw Your Fish Nets
In Shark Infested Waters

(Mark 10:11-15)


There'll Be Time Enough For Casting
Following The
Son.

Now The God Man Knows, The Secret To Soul Fishin


'Is knowin' what to throw away'

'And knowin' what to keep'

(John 8:23,24,42-59)


'Cause Every' Man's 'A Winner
And Every' Man's 'A Loser.'


It Depends On Who You Trust In
And Choose Through Right Belief.

(John 14:1;2 Tim. 1:12; Ro. 4:21-25)


So When He Finished Preaching.
He Looked Up Into Heaven
On White Clouds He Went.
 Then Faded In The Sky
.

 (Acts 1:9-11)


Of All His Time On This Earth


And With All Of His Wise Words
Even In His Final Words,

I Found Pearls That I Could Keep.

(He Taught:)

You Gotta Know How To Lead 'Em
Know What To Feed 'Em
(Jn. 21)


Know If To Walk Away.

(Luke 4:23-30; Matt. 10:11-15


Know When You're Done


You Never Count The Sheep

That Are Wolves In Sheep Like Clothing


There'll Be Time For Accounting

When The Shearins Come.

(Matt. 24:23-35; Acts 20:27-38)

'You've Got To Know When To Cast Em'

'Know When To Blast 'em'

(John 2:12-25; Matt. 23)


'Know' If 'To Walk Away'

(Luke 4:23-30; Matt. 10:11-15


Know When You're Done.


Don't Throw Your Fish Nets
In Shark Infested Waters


There'll Be Time Enough For Casting
Following The Son


You Got To Know When To Hold 'Em

(Eph. 4:32)

Know When To Scold 'Em

(2 Tim. 3:16,17; Eph. 5:11)


Know If To Walk Away

(Luke 4:23-30; Matt. 10:11-15

Know When You're Done.

(2 Tim. 4:1-8)


You Don't Put Your Jewelry
On Top Of A Pig's Table

(Matt. 7:6)


There'll Be Time For Accountin

When Judgement Comes.

(He. 9:27)

"Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. 29 I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will NOT SPARE THE FLOCK. 30 Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them." (Acts 20:28)

"Don't Cast Your Pearls Before Swine." (Gospels)

"Avoid Them..." (Eph. 5:11; Titus 3; Rom. 16:-17)


"Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Tiberias. It happened this way: 2 Simon Peter, Thomas (called Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. 3 "I'M GOING OUT TO FISH," SIMON PETER TOLD THEM, and they said, "WE'LL GO WITH YOU." So they went out and got into the boat, BUT THAT NIGHT THEY CAUGHT NOTHING. 4 Early in the morning, JESUS STOOD ON THE SHORE, BUT THE DISCIPLES DID NOT REALIZE IT WAS JESUS. 5 He called out to them, "FRIENDS, HAVEN'T YOU ANY FISH?" "No," they answered. 6 He said, "THROW YOUR NET ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BOAT and you will find some." When they did, THEY WERE UNABLE TO HAUL THE NET IN BECAUSE OF THE LARGE NUMBER OF FISH. 7 Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "IT IS THE LORD!" As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, "It is the Lord," he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. 8 The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards. 9 When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread. 10 Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish you have just caught."11 Simon Peter climbed aboard and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, "Come and have breakfast." None of the disciples dared ask him, "Who are you?" They knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. 14 This was now The Third Time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead." (John 21)

"When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?" "Yes, Lord," he said, "you know that I love you."

Jesus said, "FEED MY LAMBS."

16 Again Jesus said, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me?" He answered, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." Jesus said, "TAKE CARE OF MY SHEEP."

17 The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?"

He said, "Lord, you know all things;

you know that I love you." Jesus said, "FEED MY SHEEP. 18 I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go."19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, "Follow me!" 20 Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, "Lord, who is going to betray you?")

21 When Peter saw him, he asked, "Lord, what about him?" 22 Jesus answered, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me." 23 Because of this, the rumor spread among the brothers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?"24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true. 25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written. " (John 21)

 

Time To Clean Off Your Tennis Shoes When:

"Whatever town or village you enter, search for some worthy person there and stay at his house until you leave. 12 As you enter the home, give it your greeting. 13 If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. 14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town. 15 I tell you the truth, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town." (Matt. 10)

But Remember God Doesn't Call Us To Be Successful But Faithful. The Success Is Up To Him. (1 Cor. 3)
 
If Anything I'm Growing Through This Process.
 
Is Avoiding People And Dusting Off Your Tennis Shoes Biblical?
 
"And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave, as a testimony against them." 12 They went out and preached that people should repent." (Mark 6)
 
"If people do not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave their town, as a testimony against them." (Luke 9:5)
 
"Then Paul and Barnabas answered them boldly: "We had to speak the word of God to you first. Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we now turn to the Gentiles. 47 For this is what the Lord has commanded us: 'I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth'....51 So they shook the dust from their feet in protest against them and went to Iconium. 52 And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit." (Acts 13:46ff)
 
"I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. 18 For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people." (Romans 16)
 
"Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them." (Ephesians 5)
 
"Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 16 Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. 17 Their teaching will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18 who have wandered away from the truth. They say that the resurrection has already taken place, and they destroy the faith of some." (2 Tim. 2)
 
"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God-- 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them. 6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7 always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth." (2 Tim. 3)
 
Reprobate:
 
"The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness,
19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Amen."
 (Romans 1)
 
Hopeless:
 
I Define Hopeless Here:
 
 
Monomaniac:
 
Thirty Years Ago I Was Called A 'Monmaniac' By A Krishna Devotee, After I Harped On The Existence Of Hell. I Had To Go Home And Look Up the Word.
 
It Means: Regarding A Particular Subject (mono), I'm A Maniac (maniac)
 
I Harped On This Because One Of Their Books, the Bhagavad Gita I Thinketh, Teaches Hellish Planets But Not Hell.
 
So I Was A Monomaniac But Still Accurate. One Shouldn't Shake The Dust Off Of His Feet With A Monomaniac Unless He Is Wrong And Doesn't Listen To The Other Side.

Ten Ways To Make A Holiday A True Holy Day

The Following Points Are Links That Connect To Its Explanation:

1) No Other Jesus Will Do! (2 Cor. 11)

2) Don't Embrace The Shadow Or Major On Minors

3) Don't Cast Your Pearls Before Swine

4) Let The Master Be Your Only Master

5) 'This Little Light Of Mine, I'm Gonna Let It Shine.'

6) Do the Do's And You Will Be Less Likely To Do The Don'ts

7) Teach The Children The Meaning Of The Holy Day

8) Thou Shalt Judge

9) Don't Throw The Baby Out With The Bathwater

10) Does He Have Your Attention?

=============================================

1) No Other Jesus Will Do

This Is Of First Importance, Above All Else.

"But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning,

your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4 For if someone comes to you and PREACHES A JESUS OTHER THAN THE JESUS WE PREACHED,

or if you receive a different spirit

from the one you received, or a different gospel

from the one you accepted, YOU PUT UP WITH IT EASILY ENOUGH....For SUCH MEN ARE FALSE APOSTLES,

deceitful

workmen, MASQUERADING as apostles of Christ.

14 And no wonder, for SATAN HIMSELF masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve." (2 Cor. 11)

I've Experienced This My Whole Childhood And Part Of My Adulthood Until I Walked Away Due To The Preaching Of Another Jesus And The Gullibility Of The Hearers In My Family.

Will The Accused Please Take The Stand?

2) Don't Embrace The Shadow Or Major On Minors

 

If The KJV Was Good Nuf Fer The Apostle Paul, It's Good Nuf Fer Me

Christmas Time For Me Was About Majoring On The Minors And Minoring On The Majors

Excuse Me, I Have Just One More Question

Not A Prophet, A Non Profit

Then There's The Jewish Wannabes At Christmas

The Fervor That Jewish Wannabes Pursue The Shadow Rather Than The Christ Is Astounding. They Will Argue The Pagan And Catholic Origins Of Holidays But Wink At The Jewish Feasts Where Millions Of Unbelieving Jews And Believing Jewish Wannabes Gather To Celebrate A Coming Messiah That The Unbelieving Jews Rejected The First Time Around. (Zechariah 12:10)

Jewish Wannabeism Sure Makes For Some Strange Bedfellows.

Examples: Nehemiah Gordon....Link

"Therefore do not let anyone judge you

by what you eat or drink,

or with regard to a religious festival,

a New Moon celebration

or a Sabbath day.

17 THESE ARE A SHADOW of the things that were to come;

THE REALITY, HOWEVER, IS FOUND IN CHRIST." (Colossians 2)

The Jewish Wannabes Will Even Listen To Unbelieving Karaite Jews Tell Them What The Gospels That The Karaites Don't Believe, Mean In Hebrew, And Tolerate Their New Ageism Because Of Their Misplaced Emphasis On All Things Jewish, But Condemn Christians For Celebrating Christmas.

You're A Religious Wannabe To Varying Degrees If You:

Link

These Jewish Wannabes Seem To Be Trapped Into Legalism Which Presupposes That We Are Still Obligated To Observe The Torah Rather Than Love, The Shadow Rather Than The Shadow Caster And Whenever The Messiah Is Diminished You Have A Resulting Increase In What Man Has To Do To Take Up The Slack. This Is True Of The Cults As Well. Diminish Who Christ Is Then Man Has To Fill In Where His Saviour Falls Short. Jewish Wannabes Just Worship A Shadow That Cannot Do Much For Them At All.

When Paul Spoke Of Cutting People Slack At Their Level Of Maturity In Romans Fourteen I Believe He Was Referring To Actual Jews Coming Out Of Judaism Not Gentiles Who Wannabe Jews.

In Christ We Are Complete, In His Shadow We Are Incomplete (Colossians 2:9,10) And Therefore Do Things That Incomplete People Do, Like Major On The Minors And Minor On The Majors, Push The Torah Rather Than Love, Touch Not, Taste Not, Don't Handle....

If You Are A Christian, Perfect Or Not, The Above Mentioned Verses Are What You Should Be Insisting On.

Should We Major On The Minors, And Minor On The Majors?

http://maxwellshouse1.tripod.com/id93.html

What Happens When Christians Strain At Gnats, Swallow Camels, Embrace Shadows, Major On The Minors?

http://maxwellshouse1.tripod.com/id94.html

3) Don't Cast Your Pearls Before Swine

If Your Efforts To Get The Christ Into Christmas Fails In Your Family And You're Looked At As A Radical Fanatic For Speaking The Obvious, Then You Can Always Do It Correctly At Home.

My Wife And I Have Been Condemned By Family And Relatives For Retreating To Our Home For The Holy Days. 'Well, If You Were Loving, You Would Endure The HelliDay With Us.

They Refuse To See How Christ Told Us To Respond To Those That Don't Receive The Good News From Us, Frowning At Our Christian Presents, Picking Up Christian Tracts After Us So No One Gets Them.

"Whatever town or village you enter, search for some worthy person there and stay at his house until you leave. 12 As you enter the home, give it your greeting. 13 If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. 14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town. 15 I tell you the truth, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town." (Matt. 10)

"COMING TO HIS (JESUS') HOMETOWN, he began teaching the people in their synagogue,

and they were amazed.

"Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?" they asked. 55 "Isn't this the carpenter's son?

Isn't his mother's

name Mary, and aren't his brothers

James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56 Aren't all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?" 57 AND THEY TOOK OFFENSE AT HIM. But Jesus said to them, "ONLY IN HIS HOMETOWN AND IN HIS OWN HOUSE IS A PROPHET WITHOUT HONOR."

58 And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith." (Matthew 13)

Jesus Then Left And Went Where People Would Listen. I'm Sure That There Were Those Out There That Claimed He Was Being Unloving For Not Casting His Pearls For Them To Rip To Shreds, But He Was Love Incarnate And This Is What He Did.

 

4) Let The Master Be Your Only Master

Now Here's An Area I Need Work On. When That Good Smelling Turkey, Cranberry Sauce And All The Fixins Hit My Nose I Am Determined To Fully Enjoy It.

This Is My Thorn In The Flesh. (2 Corinthians 12) I Sometimes Eat Christmas Dinner Like There Is No Tomorrow. Then I Need To Be Carted Off In A Wheel Barrow. However, This Year I Am Committed To Watch Myself While Still Enjoying The Meal And Thanking God, My Wife And The Turkey For It.

So Here's A Simple Thought During The Holy Day: Eat When Your Hungry, Stop When Your Hunger Is Satisfied And Give Your Brain The Time To Register That Your Hunger Has Been Satisfied By Eating Slowly And Thinking About Christ.

When I Was In The Navy Over Thirty Years Ago, I Was Placed With A Group Of Fellow Sailors And We Were Forced To Hang Over The Side Of The Ship From Early Morning To Late Evening, Seven Days A Week.

When We Were Given Our Lunch And Dinner, We Were Only Given Fifteen Minutes To Eat It And Then We Were Ordered To Be Back Over The Side Painting The Ship.

This Meant That You Had To Shovel Your Food In Your Mouth And Not Wait To See How Much You Actually Needed.

Well, After Three Months We Staged A Mutiny And Refused To Do The Work Anymore, One Guy Went Straight To The Executive Officer And The Group Was Disbanded.

I Seem To Have Never Recovered From That Way Of Eating Though. I Need Divine Help On This One.

Now Let Me Add, You Skinny People Aren't Off The Hook On This One Either.

Many Years Ago, I Had A Christian Brother That Rebuked Me For Being Overweight. He Was Skinny And Arrogant About All Things. But What He Forgot About Was That I Had Been With Him At Buffets And He Eats Three Times As Much As I Do.

So Did God Say, Don't Be Overweight Or Avoid Gluttony?

The World Is Into Counting Calories Or Being Skinny And If It Was About That Then We Should Conclude That People In The World Are Our Example Because They Got This Down Better Than We Christians Do.

Bars You Gots To Drive To, But The Fridge Is Only A Hop, Skip And A Jump Away.

This Arrogant Brother Was Skinny And Obviously Had A Metabolism Or Activity Rate Much Higher Than Most, But Wrongly Concluded That God Said Being Skinny Is The Goal.

Paul Said: "Everything is permissible for me"--but not everything is beneficial.

"Everything is permissible for me"--but I WILL NOT BE MASTERED BY ANYTHING. 13 "Food for the stomach and the stomach for food"--but God will destroy them both.

" (1 Corinthians 6)

I've Been To Christmas Celebrations Where You Would Think That There Were Only Two Choices, Either To Eat As Much As Possible Or Be Anorexic And Nauseating While Fearing Food. These Were Two Extremes That Are Equally Bad.

The Goal Is To Be Like Christ, Let Him Be Lord Of Every Area Of Our Life And Nothing Else. This Is A Lifelong Journey No Doubt. Serving God Is A Lifelong Pursuit, But Some Aren't Even Trying.

"NOT THAT I have already obtained all this, or HAVE ALREADY BEEN MADE PERFECT,

but I press on to take hold

of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.

13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But ONE THING I DO: Forgetting what is behind

and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on

toward the goal to win the prize

for which God has called

me heavenward in Christ Jesus. 15 All of US WHO ARE MATURE SHOULD TAKE SUCH A VIEW OF THINGS.

And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you." (Philippians 3)

Those That Don't Take This View Or Struggle To Serve God Are Not Christians.

Moderation Means That You Do Eat But Not Too Much. You're Not Afraid Of Food But You Don't Treat It Like Your Only Friend Either.

God Doesn't Say Get A Skinny Operation To Be Skinny, He Said Don't Be Mastered By Anything But The Master. That Means Food Or Fear Of Food....

Gluttony Of Delicacy:

" " (Lewis)

http://andyinoman.wordpress.com/2010/04/08/gluttony-of-delicacy-not-gluttony-of-excess/

My Wife And I Know A Woman That Went From Being Overweight, To Skinny Surgery To Being So Obsessed And Afraid Of Food That She Has Frightened At Least Three Other Younger Family Members Into Being Anorexic And Looking Like Holocaust Survivors As Well. They See The Rest Of The World Through A Food Strainer.

Moderation: 'Avoidance Of Excesses Or Extremes' (New World College Dictionary)

This Means Not Only The Excess Of Food Consumption But Also The Excess In The Opposite Direction Of Being Afraid Of Food And Avoiding Food.

This Woman Even Would Praise These Men Like Dead Trees Walking For Doing Such Things.

"Blessed is the man

who DOES NOT WALK IN THE COUNSEL OF THE WICKED

or stand in the way

of sinners

or sit

in the seat of mockers.

2 But his delight

is in the law of the LORD,

and on his law he meditates

day and night. 3 He is like a tree

planted by streams

of water,

which yields its fruit

in season and whose leaf

does not wither. Whatever he does prospers." (Psalm 1)

Where Biggest Loser Got It Wrong.

My Wife And I Watch Biggest Loser And Enjoy It, While Letting It Inspire Us In Our Eating Habits And Exercise.

However, The Way These Trainers Train These Big Losers Are Setting Them Up For A Fall.

No One Is Going To Train Like That On Their Own Or Be Changing Up The Exercise Routines Like These Trainers Do.

One Must Do What They Can Maintain For The Rest Of Their Lives.

The Way They Workout On The Biggest Loser Cannot Contribute To Long Term Weight Loss.

Integrating Exercise Into Ones Daily Activities Is The Ideal. Those With Carpentry Jobs Are Blessed And Have The Edge Over Us With More Sedentary Lifestyles.

The World Has Vascillated Between Thinking Marilyn Monroe Was Attractive To Thinking Audrey Hepburn Or Ally McBeal Was.

From Voluptuous To Bulemic. Models Modelling Clothes That Only They And Women On Speed Can Wear.

I Knew Two Women During My Inner City Ministry Days That Were Slightly Overweight. They Gave Into The Pressure Of The World i.e. Tely, Daughters...To Be Skinny And They Resorted To Drugs To Accomplish It. They Got Skinny All Right, But Also Got Screwed Up In Many Other Ways In The Process.

They Often Haven't Even Got To The First Step In The Healing And Deliverance Process Of Admitting They Have A Problem Because They Often Don't Think They Do.

They Don't Suffer From Their Problem, They Enjoy It, Basque In It, And Make It Their Whole Identity.

They Think They've Gotten The Victory Over Food When Hopefully They Someday Find Out That Now They Fear Food.

Anorexics And Bulemics Often Think Everything Is Progressing Nicely But Want More Weight Loss. They Don't Even See That They Have A Problem. Ask My Wife About Her Experiences Years Ago, Who Agreed To This Mention.

5) 'This Little Light Of Mine, I'm Gonna Let It Shine'

Lit Cross

I've Been Shunned Just For Shining My Light During The Holy Days.

Despite What I Say It Always Come Back To: He That Is Without Sin Preach The First Word....

"If We Say That We Have No Sin, We Deceive Ourselves And the Truth Is Not In Us." (1 John 1:8)

The Bible Says We Are Not To Hide Our Light Under A Bushel But That's Exactly How Some People Treat You.

It Is More Blessed To Give And Receive:

6) Do the Do's And You Will Be Less Likely To Do The Don'ts

Mike Warnke, 'Christian' Comedian Said, 'Do The Do's And You Won't Have Time To Do The Don'ts.'

But I Say Unto You, 'Do The Do's And You Will Have Less Time And Energy To Do The Don'ts, Not That The Don'ts Will Be Impossible. Mike Warnke Finally Figured This Out.

Many Unbelievers Or Carnal Christians Wrongly Conclude That Christianity Is A System Of Don'ts Rather Than Do's. Then They Conclude That Being A Christian Is Being A Moral Goody Two Shoes. Then They Expect You As A Christian To Be Perfect Before You Can Say Anything To Them.

So It Then Follows That They Don't Do Any Of The Do's, Which Is What God Really Wants.

"We Are Dead To Sin Only To The Degree That We Are Alive Unto God."

"Since, then, you have been raised with Christ,

SET YOUR HEARTS ON THINGS ABOVE, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.

2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." (Colossians 3)

A Christian Is Primarily One Who Tastes Of God Things And Bears Fruit, Not A Monk Who Takes A Vow Of Seeing No Evil, Hearing No Evil, Tasting No Evil.

"That which was from the beginning,

which WE HAVE HEARD, WHICH WE HAVE SEEN WITH OUR EYES, WHICH WE HAVE LOOKED AT AND OUR HANDS HAVE TOUCHED. 2 The life appeared;

we have seen it and testify to it,

and we proclaim to you the eternal life,

which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard,

so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.

4 We write this

to make our

joy complete." (1 John 1:1-4)

These Were Jesus' Disciples Who Experienced The Word/Logos Which Is The Beginning Of True Logic.

"Come now, LET US REASON TOGETHER,"

says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;

though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool." (Isaiah 1:18)

But We Can Experience Him Too. He's Not About Thou Shalt Not, He's About What Thou Shalt.

Those That Don't Do The Do's Are Those That Don't Know Him At All. (Philippians 4)

"Taste and see that the LORD is good;

blessed is the man who takes refuge

in him." (Psalm 34:8)

Love And Truth Is A Do And A Fruit And Fruit Grows But Doesn't Instantly Appear: "But the fruit

of the Spirit is love,

joy, peace,

patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.

Against such things there is no law." (Galatians 5)

7) Teach The Children The Meaning Of The Holy Day

Sometimes The Children Are Disobedient To Their Parents, Ungrateful, Unholy Because Their Parents Are And Don't Respect Each Other. They Don't Even Know The Basics Because Their Parents Didn't Or Didn't Communicate It To Them.

Going Into A Situation Where You Get The Displeasure Of Hanging Out With Families During A Holiday Where The Children Are Looking For Someone To Devour, Kind Of Like A Cat Looking For A Scratching Post.

"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.

2 People will be LOVERS OF THEMSELVES, lovers of money,

boastful, proud,

abusive,

DISOBEDIENT TO THEIR PARENTS, UNGRATEFUL, UNHOLY, 3 WITHOUT LOVE, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous,

rash, conceited,

LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS OF GOD-- 5 having a FORM OF GODLINESS

but denying its power. HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM." (2 Timothy 3)

LOVERS OF THEMSELVES

This Is How Some Holy Days Have Become Holidays Without Any Sign Of Its Christian Meaning. Santa Replacing Jesus, Me Instead Of Him, My Presents Rather His Presence...

The Almighty Me Being The Center Of My Punyverse And I Can Only Interpret What Is Happening By How Does It Serve Me.

Logic And Reasoning Are Only As Good As Their Starting Point. When 'Me' Is The Starting Point No Wonder When You Talk Of Jesus They Look At You With Blank Stares. They Don't Even Know What You Are Talking About.

DISOBEDIENT TO THEIR PARENTS, UNGRATEFUL, UNHOLY, 3 WITHOUT LOVE

LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS OF GOD

Having a FORM OF GODLINESS

 

HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM

8) Thou Shalt Judge

"24 Stop judging by mere appearances, and MAKE A RIGHT JUDGMENT."

(John 7:24)

People That Say 'Thou Shalt Not Judge' Never Read Let Alone Studied The Bible. I Have Heard, 'Judge Not, Lest Ye Be Judged' Spoken Out Of Context So Many Times From Carnal, Lukewarm And Undercover Christians And Unbelievers That I
Could Literally Hurl.

Log Versus Speck:

"Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged" (Matthew 7:1ff)

The Context, Not Just The Whole Sentence Is About Those With Logs In Their Eyes Not Judging Those With Specks In Theirs.

For Those That Don’t Know, A Log Is Bigger Than A Speck.

In Other Words Don’t Judge If You Are Worse Off Than The One That You Are Judging.

It Has Nothing To Do Whether One Should Judge Or Not.

"He that believeth on him is not judged: he that believeth not hath been JUDGED ALREADY, because he hath not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And THIS IS THE JUDGMENT, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil." (John 3:18,19; A.S.V.)

Those That Love Darkness, Walk In Sin, Don't Struggle Against Sin Are Judged.

Now What Does This Have To Do With A Holiday/Holy Day?

Everything, If We Are To Celebrate A Holiday, Let It Be For The Stated Purpose, Not As An Afterthought That Gets About A Minute Of Attention Then On To Me, Me, Me.

It's Easy To Spot One Who Loves Darkness Rather Than The Light. Their Nasty Mouth Might Get A Holiday Once Or Twice A Year But The Rest Of The Year They Can Cuss The Wallpaper Off The Wall, Not To Mention The Cuss Words Often Don't Even Fit With What They Are Talking About. (Ephesians 4:26)

They Will Often Claim To 'Have God' But Hardly Ever Acknowledge His Help Or Blessings.

If They Even Have A 'Form/Facade Of Godliness' They Deny The Power Thereof, And Their Pretending Is Easy To See Through.

They Pride Themselves In Much Of What The World Prides Itself In i.e. A Great Body, Job, Car....But They Are Really Just A Silver Plaited Turd, A Whitewashed Coffin.

If They Even Pray It Sounds More Like A Speech Than A Prayer And A Lot Of Thees And Thous Thrown In.

The Verdict And Judgment Is Already In On These Folks. Their Famous Line Is That Only Perfect People Can Point This Out And Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged, But Conveniently Forget That They Have Already Been Judged By Christ Himself.

We Cannot Talk To Them About Jesus, Until We Are Perfect Though Talking About Jesus Is A Part Of Becoming Perfected. (Philemon )

9) Don't Throw The Baby Out With The Bathwater

There Is All This Talk About The Pagan Or Catholic Origins Of The Holidays, Apparently They Forget That Even The Names Of The Days Of The Week Have Evil Origins.

SATURday:

'Origin:
bef. 900; ME Saturdai; OE Saternesdæg, partial trans. of L Sāturnī diēs SATURrn's day; c. D zaterdag, LG saterdag'

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Saturday

By 'Saturn' We Are Not Talking About The Planet But The Roman Mythological God.

'an ancient Roman god of agriculture, the consort of Ops, believed to have ruled the earth during an age of happiness and virtue, identified with the Greek god Cronus.'

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Saturn

Sunday:

Origin:
bef. 900; ME sun ( nen ) day, OE sunnandæg, trans. of L diēs sōlis, itself trans. of Gk hēméra hēlíou DAY OF THE SUN; c. G Sonntag.'

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Sunday

If A Pagan Names The Day No Matter The Name, Doesn't It Have Pagan Origins?

Unless We Want To Communicate Differently Even Using The Names Is Our Participation Isn't It?

Well, Honey I'm Going Shopping On The Third Day Of The Week, Do You Need Anything?

 

 

So, Many Of The Days Of The Week Are Of Pagan Origin, So Should We Not Participate In Them?

Should We Throw The Christ Child i.e., Baby Out Because His Bathwater Is Dirty?

How Did Paul React On Mars Hill When He Saw All The Idols The Greek Worshipped And Philosophized About? He Was Distressed As I Am With All The Dirty Bathwater Surrounding The Christ Child, Including His Catholic Mother.

"Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus

and said: "Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious.

23 For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I EVEN FOUND AN ALTAR WITH THIS Inscription: To An Unknown God. Now WHAT YOU WORSHIP AS SOMETHING UNKNOWN I AM GOING TO PROCLAIM TO YOU. ...28 'For in him we live and move and have our being.'

AS SOME OF YOUR OWN POETS HAVE SAID, 'We are his offspring.' 29 "Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone--an image made by man's design and skill.

30 In the past God overlooked

such ignorance,

but now HE COMMANDS ALL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE TO REPENT." (Acts 17)

Rather Than Condemning Them Like With Religious Pretending Jews And Jewish Wannabes (Matt. 23; 1 Timothy 4), He Built Upon What Was There To Bring Them The Whole Truth. He Refers To Their Altar To 'An Unknown God' And Even Quotes Some Of Their Poets.

More Here On That:

The Advantage We Christians Have Is The Christ Child To Celebrate Not An Unknown God. As Long As That Is Still Possible Why Not?

Most Families Have Been Given Over To The So Called 'Christmas Spirit' Whatever That Is, Materialism, Everything But The Christ Child And To Them We Are To Wipe Off Our Tennis Shoes, (Link) But These Epicurean Philosophers Were Eager To Hear This New Doctrine.

But How You React Is Your Business. (Romans 14:1, ), But As For Me And My House, We Will Serve The Lord On Every Day Of The Week And Year. We Choose To Make That Day Holy.

If You Cannot Beat Them Then Try Redirecting Them.

I Find It Funny But This Year Christmas Is On A Saturday. So The Throw The Baby Out With The Bathwater Crowd Condemns Christmas For Its Pagan And Catholic Origins But Don't Do The Same With The Days Of The Week Like Saturday.

One Person Knowing My Opposition To The Catholic Church Asked Me In Regards To Christmas/Christ Mass If The Hero Now Is The Catholic Church.

I Said, No, But I Thank Them Regarding Christmas Day Like I Would Thank Balaams Jackass. (Numbers 22)

I Don't Throw Out The Trinity Because The Catholic Church Formulated (Not Created) The Doctrine. The Trinity Is Taught Even In The Old Testament. (Genesis 1:26; Ps. 16:10; 45:6,7; 110; Isaiah 9:6; 48:12-16) And The Catholic Church Only Organized The Teaching Into A Creed.

In Addition To This Many Of The Errant Doctrines Of The Catholic Church Came Later:

So Making An Official Day To Celebrate The Birth Of Christ That Counters The Pagan Origins Of That Date Doesn't Take Away From The Fact That God Became A Baby Through Mary And This Is A Day When Many Christians And Catholics Celebrate His Birth.

I'm Jiggy With It And What Happens In My House Will Be Strictly About JC And That's What Is Important To Me.

And If I'm Correct The Creator Is The Originator Of All Days, No Matter What Man Decides To Call Those Days Afterwards.

For Those That Celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas, For The Others Have A Super Saturday...Oops That Has Pagan Origins Too!!

10) Does He Have Your Attention?

"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

22 "The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! 24 "NO ONE CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money." (Matthew 6:24)

Most People Treat Jesus Like The Necessary But Not Too Tasty Ingredient In A Recipe. We Gotta Make Sure We Take A Minute Of Our Holiday Speaking Of The Saviour And We Need to Make Him Sound As Interesting And Focused On Us As Possible So All The Spoiled Children In The House Will Be Quiet During The Devotional And Before The Gift Giving.

My Wife And I Have Retreated To Our Own Home To Focus On Jesus During The Holy Day And Not Open Gifts Until January First.

We Keep A Lit Red Cross In Our Window For Passers By To See All Year, But Especially During The Holidays.
