The Consequence of Sin: Saul’s signs of [Manic Depression or Bipolar Disorder]

The Word of God is truth. (John 17:17) Because it is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for  reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16) It cannot be broken. (John 10:35). it is perfect. (Psalms 19:7). The sum of His Word is truth. (Psalms 119:160) The Word of God is SUFFICIENT!

For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete. (2 Corinthians 10:4-6)

We all know  that being “CRAZY” [indeed out of mind] is different from “Manic Depression” or Bipolar disorder. This might be direct result of “the fall” [sin] as  Jesus says, “His blindness has nothing to do with his sins or his parents’ sins. He is blind so that God’s power might be seen at work in him. (John 9:3) Another is with Lazarus, “this has happened in order to bring glory to God, and it will be the means by which the Son of God will receive glory.” (John 11:4)

Anyway, the Scripture is sufficient to address this issue, so we don’t have to look for other resources to answer this issue [Manic Depression or Bipolar Disorder]

We all know Saul, son of Kish from the tribe of Benjamin. The LORD made him a king through prophet Samuel because the people asked for a king. In chapter 12 of 1 Samuel, Samuel’s farewell address to the people regarding him and to what God has done to people since Egypt until that day. And at the end of the chapter he reminded them this, “Obey the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart. Remember the great things he has done for you. But if you continue to sin, you and your king will be destroyed.” (1 Samuel 12:24-25) Saul disobedience: But Saul sinned against the LORD, [he offered “strange” burnt sacrifice]. “That was a foolish thing to do,” Samuel answered. Next is, Saul spared life of Agag and his best animals where Samuel commanded him to kill “all” He disobeyed the LORD again. (1 Samuel 15:3,9)

The consequence of sin; It started when ” The Lord’s spirit left Saul, and an evil spirit sent by the Lord tormented him.” (1 Samuel  16:14).

[You can determine how Saul has a tendency of Manic Depression or Bipolar Disorder]

1. Don’t you find this foolish decision of king Saul when he wanted to have his armor wear by David? That’s why David said, “I can’t fight with all this, “I’m not used to it.” So he took it all off. (1 Samuel 17:39-40)

2. He became jealous; He raved like a madman as he was tormented by an evil spirit, he speared David twice, yet he gave his daughter to him, then he feared David. (1 Samuel 18)

3. Saul planned to kill David again and again and pretended as though he never had something by saying, “Why didn’t David come to the meal either yesterday or today?” He even intended to kill his own son Jonathan. (1 Samuel 20)

4.He twisted the truth and say something against David and killed Ahimilech and priests. (1 Samuel 22:11-13)

5. Planned to kill David and yet the LORD’s favor was with Saul. But David spared Saul. Saul said, “Is that really you, David my son?” And he started crying. (1 Samuel 24)

6. And so it happened again and David spared Saul’s life again. Saul answered, “I have done wrong. Come back, David, my son! I will never harm you again, because you have spared my life tonight. I have been a fool! I have done a terrible thing!” Saul said to David, “God bless you, my son! You will succeed in everything you do!” (1 Samuel 26)

7. Saul was terrified, and so he asked the Lord what to do. But the Lord did not answer him at all, either by dreams or by the use of Urim and Thummim or by prophets. consults a medium. He was weak, because he had not eaten anything all day and all night. (1 Samuel 28)

8 And the result? He committed suicide, “He said to the young man carrying his weapons, “Draw your sword and kill me, so that these godless Philistines won’t gloat over me and kill me.” But the young man was too terrified to do it. So Saul took his own sword and threw himself on it. (1 Samuel 31:4)

God’s glory revealed. He is a holy God, His eyes are too pure to approve evil,  and He can not look on wickedness with favor. (Habakkuk 1:13) God is a righteous judge, and a God who has indignation every day. If a man does not repent, He will sharpen His sword; He has bent His bow and made it ready. (Psalms 7:11-12)

The Truth & The Light Ministries

This series deals with a very serious allegation made by a Christian Brother in Australia. He has uncovered evidence that Kenneth Copeland, Rodney Howard Browne and many other famous preachers are actually Satanists posing as pastors. This evidence comes straight from the lips of these men themselves as by closely analyzing their tongues they can be heard calling upon and praising Satan. I have heard and seen the entire series and can verify that the report below is true. The way they praise Satan in front of crowds is by mixing the praises into their tongues.

As unbelievable as this will sound to many, it is by only viewing these Video’s that you can make an accurate judgment.

If after viewing these series you’re still not convinced, please go to the end of  part 21 & click & on the audio video link below for more pentecostal/Charismatic heresy.

A Disciple’s Best Life: Now or Later? (Luke 14:25-35)

[PRIORITY]

26 “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.

“To hate” means is not to “Prioritize” Jesus said this because in Jewish culture, family is their priority. The Scripture says that His disciples Peter, Andrew, James and John left their work and even their father. (Matthew 4:18-22) And so Matthew the Tax Collector (Matthew 9:9) But today we cannot apply this “hate- priority” literally today. How? Jesus answered, “The foremost is, ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. (Mark 12:29-30) To prioritize God should be in the context of God’s  providence. It means you don’t have to violate God’s command just to follow other command. Because “God’s will is good, acceptable, perfect” (Romans 12:2)

(Husband/Father), “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself.. (Ephesians 5:25-28) God does not call you to lay down your life to church (ministry) He called you irrevocably to lay down your life to your wife, to love and disciple her. Your priority is your wife before your ministry in Church. Then next as father, “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4) That is, “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.” (Deuteronomy 6:4-7). And tell them the gospel of Jesus (2 Timothy 3:14-15) It is not the Sunday’s school teachers priority to teach your children though it is part of the Sunday service, it is your responsibility! If you don’t teach these things and spend time on your children, you are giving your children to the world and to devil’s scheme.  So it’s about loving your wife and disciple them, next is your children.

(Wife/Mother), “Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church,  He Himself being the Savior of the body. 24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought
to be to their husbands in everything.” (Ephesians 5:22-24)) “In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, as they observe
your chaste and respectful behavior.” (1 Peter 3:1-2) and being a virtuous woman. (Proverbs 31:10-31)

(Children/Youth/Young People), “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth.” (Ephesians 6:1-3) It means, you are active in Church (ministry) but not at home. That’s not God’s will! First be active at home then outside and Church. “Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.” (2 Timothy 2:22) How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your word. (Psalms 119:9)

People/Lost/Believers), The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:31) To love..to do good, to greet without expecting in return. Therefore [aq]you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Matthew 5:43-48) To warn and tell them the truth of the Gospel; the consequence of sin and the forgiveness only through the cross of Christ, His death and resurrection. (John 3:16, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Ephesians 2:8-9) And commanding them like Jesus (Mark 1:15), Peter (Acts 2:38), Paul (Acts 17:30) the gospel invitation, the call to “REPENT and BELIEVE (Faith)”

With all these, “for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” (1 Corinthians 14:33)

A Disciple’s Best Life: Now or Later? (Luke 14:25-35)

[PROCLAMATION]

25 Now large crowds were going along with Him; and He turned and said to them,

Jesus told them parables, the guests and dinner. Many were invited great and poor. In verse 24 He says, For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste of my dinner.’ Jesus did evangelism and so many people were going along with him”. But these people, same “us” in this present age don’t know what exactly is the cost of being a disciple. So He turned..

“And the master said to the slave, ‘Go out into the highways and along the hedges, and compel them to come in, so that my house may be filled.” (Luke 14:23)

Godly dating or Recreational dating?

First, every Disciple, Believer, Christian must fully believed the “sufficiency” and “inerrancy” of the Scripture. (2 Timothy 3:16)

We know that we can’t find anywhere in the Scripture the word “Dating”, but there are many principles to learn and live. For me. the main source or the greatest answer of all is, the understanding and knowledge of what God has done for us in his Son Jesus Christ. The Gospel! What is love? My favorite love verse, This is Love: That HE loved us. (1 John 4:10) And Scripture says, “We love.. because what? We love because He [God] “first” loved us! (1 John 4:19) That’s the only reason, you love because God loved you first through Jesus!

Now a person who is regenerated by the Spirit of God, (John 3:8) Having cleansed, new heart and spirit. (Ezekiel 36:26-27) He is a new creature, old has gone the new has come! (2 Corinthians 5:17) Therefore everything in his life must be guided and live in the context of the gospel of Jesus.

We, [Disciple, Believer, Christian] have freedom, “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.” (1 Corinthians 10:31) As far as the “Dating” is concerned? Someone says, “I want to go out with her so that I can know her well!” a man of God answered, “You mean, you have to date all of your friends [girls] just for you to know them.” A man of God says, “Dating”? as “Recreational Dating” There is biblical courtship, there is no recreational dating. For me I can define “Godly Dating” should be as a group, “fellowship of the Believers” (Acts 2:42-47) That’s godly dating! You cannot date or go out with someone with the opposite sex unless you are in a legal relationship, most of all having the parent’s blessing and consent.

I will quote this from man of God, If you ask, ” ‘When can I start thinking about someone of the opposite sex?’ Well you can start thinking whenever the thought comes to you, the question is when you can start acting. When then can we start even courtship? I said, first of all, the only time you ever think about being with a girl is because you feel like the Lord is leading you into marriage with that girl. This is when you can first begin to initiate the dealings that lead to a relationship. This is when you can begin: When as a young man you can biblically lead a girl as a spiritual leader. Until that moment, you cannot be with anyone of the opposite sex.

Emotionally you can care for her – that means you’re willing to make a life-long commitment and not test the waters with any other person. Financially you can care for her: if dad’s still paying the insurance on your car, forget about it…. And physically protect her – that doesn’t mean you can whoop every guy in the county, but it does mean you will be whooped by every guy in the county before you allow anyone to pass, that you have enough moral fortitude and courage to draw a line in the sand and say, ‘Over my cold, dead, blue, deformed body will you do that.’

…I love hunting and…I have some Wikki(sp?) Eskimo broad-heads at home. They’re very, very sharp, they’re two-bladed, so they have to be very, very sharp. And I have a little wrench that I use to put those broad-heads onto the arrow shaft, because you don’t even want to put your hand on the side of them because if you slip, they’ll slice your finger off. Now, I have a 3 year old boy and I built a hickory bow for him. He’s got a little arrow that he shoots and it has a blunt, wooden tip on the end of it – wont penetrate much. Except his little brother’s eye, but… Sometimes I’ll be those arrow-heads off and on and my little boy Ian will come up there and he’ll want to touch the arrows, and I’ll say, No son, you can’t. These arrows that your dad can handle – they’ll kill you. Now one day, son, you’ll be man enough to handle these arrows, and you can hunt like a big boy. You can hunt like a man. But you’ve got a lot of growing before you can do that. One of the greatest problems, young men, that we have today, is that a lot of young men are wanting to play with big boy toys. And yet they’re still little boys.

You see, we don’t want to pay the price of becoming a man in order to do men things. The bible says, Become a man, and God will lead you into the ways of a man.

“One of the most terrifying thing a man can do is to take to him a daughter of God, without assuming the full responsibility of it!”

The Gospel of Jesus Christ: The God Who Sees Us!

This status caught my attention, “I’m pretty sure that in [God’s eyes], [all of us] are as [cute and adorable] as this baby!”

I’m not concern with the baby, in fact he’s indeed cute and adorable. But my concern is in the statement it says, “God’s eyes” and “All of us”. Let’s look on the Truth and Light of the Scripture. First, [God’s eyes] “Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrongdoing.” (Habakkuk 1:13) Second, [All of us] “There is no one righteous, not even one;..”for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” (Romans 3:10,23) Do you see the problem? How can a holy [God’s eyes] look on [All of us] favorably as though we are like [cute and adorable] baby?“For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness; with you, evil people are not welcome. The arrogant cannot stand in your presence. You hate all who do wrong; you destroy those who tell lies.”  (Psalms 5:4-6) “God is a righteous judge, a God who displays his wrath every day.” (Psalms 7:11) How can we put these things together? How can we get right with God? How can He look on us favorably if He is holy, righteous, and just?

The answer is this; God made a way to show His unconditional love, grace and mercy through his Son Jesus by this, (The Gospel)

“being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. 
(Romans 3:24-26)

God can look on us favorably through His Son Jesus who died for our sin, was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scripture (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). What now? “God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, and believe the Gospel!” (Acts 17:30, Mark 1:15)

 

The Gospel of Jesus Christ: Scandalous

“This child is chosen by God for the destruction and the salvation of many in Israel. He will be a sign from God which many people will speak against and so reveal their secret thoughts…”
(Luke 2:34-35)

One of the attributes of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, it is scandalous. Why? It says, that, ‘the secret thoughts of many will what? Will be revealed, will be exposed’. “Those who do evil things hate the light and will not come to the light, because they do not want their evil deeds to be shown up.” (John 3:20) Therefore, “..people whose evil ways prevent the truth from being known.” (Romans 1:18b) That’s why it says, ‘people will speak against” [Jesus], they mocked, ridiculed and to the point ‘they meant to throw him over the cliff’ (Luke 4:29) Even the apostles, disciples and historical believers experienced great persecution because of the scandal of the message of the Gospel. The apostle Paul says that the message of the Christ crucified is, “offensive and nonsense” (1 Corinthians 1:23)

We read that, this child [Jesus] is chosen.. chosen by God for what? For the message about Christ’s death on the cross is nonsense to those who are being lost; this is what it meant, “The destruction of many.. but for us who [those] are being saved; this is what it meant, “the salvation of many.. who are being saved it is God’s power. (1 Corinthians 1:18) apostle Paul says, “..it is God’s power to save all who believe..” (Romans 1:16)

Now, if the Gospel you are preaching ceases to offend men? When you remove the scandal, you also remove the power of God. You are not preaching the true Gospel at all.
