Matthew 15:13-14

But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. - Matthew 15:13-14 KJV

A Word about the Book of Ecclesiastes

Oh, Solomon's words... they helped me once when I was not a Christian yet... there is so much in it that we can see in our own reality today. I could not understand this world anymore, and could not beliee that celebrating parties and fun should be all there is to life. I just needed to find out what life really is... Ecclesiastes (also known as Kohelet, or "Prediger" in German) was one of my first books in the Bible that I read before I became a Christian. It showed me that it was not me who had strange views of the world as I thought, no, the world had them, and even Solomon with his wisdom thought the same way as I did. Reading that book was probably the moment when I thought I should give God a chance and read more of the Bible.

It shows me that nothing has changed in all the 3000 years since then... Humans are still the same, they think the same and behave the same way. And they all have one thing in common: they are lacking God. Solomon was the wisest man on earth, but even he fell into sin when he worshipped idols.

"JESUS WILL COME BACK" - by Vera Six - YouTube




Jesus my LORD, He'll come back down from Heaven in a cloud at the last trumpet sound.
Then will His sheep in the graves be awaken, all of the lost who were found.
Jesus my LORD, He'll come back down from Heaven and wait there for us in the cloud
until the angels have brought us together, all of the lost who were found.
And every eye shall see the LORD, the knees will all bow before His Glory
after all the stars have fallen, all His sheep will follow Him.

Jesus my LORD, He'll come back down from Heaven as lightning from the east to the west.
Then will His sheep be restored and be given the final touch He can give best.
Jesus my LORD, He'll come back down from Heaven before our new earth is born.
A new song is sung and old things are forgotten. Nobody will ever mourn.
And every eye shall see the LORD, the knees will all bow before His Glory
after all the stars have fallen. All His sheep will follow Him.

Jesus my LORD He'll come back down from Heaven to reign the new earth with His Peace
One thousand years will He reign with His people, His kingdom that will never cease.
Jesus my LORD, He'll come back down from Heaven to marry the bride of His choice.
There'll be a party for all the forgiven, and one song in which all will rejoice.
And every eye shall see the LORD, the knees will all bow before His Glory
after all the stars have fallen, all His sheep will follow Him.

Jesus my LORD, He'll come back down from Heaven and wipe away every tear
there shall be no death, no more sorrow, nor crying and noone will ever have fear.
Jesus my LORD, He'll come back down from Heaven in a cloud at the last trumpet sound.
Then will His sheep in the graves be awaken, all of the lost who were found.
And every eye shall see the LORD, the knees will all bow before His Glory
after all the stars have fallen, all His sheep will follow Him.

The Falling Away of the Church



Yes, they would love to abolish the Bible. This trend is worldwide. My ex-church wants to help building up a mosque meanwhile, but they got a few rejections for that – still. The sermons of the new pastor there are only 15 minutes long meanwhile. This pastor also cited from the Quran to please his Muslim "Brothers and Sisters". It was broadcast on ZDF (a major German TV station), but nobody seems to see a tendency in this. Also, two years ago some Muslims were allowed to call out for an alliance of God-loving Christians and Muslims. This was also ignored. When I wanted to warn the people of the influence of the Emerging Church at a co-workers meeting, I was forbidden to talk as a Bible study group guide. The only thing I could do was declare my leaving after declaring my reasons for that to about 100 people by e-mail. I converted 13 years ago at an evangelisation called "ProChrist", and God's Word is my direction, because God spoke personally to me then. Two years before I my conversion I was reading the Bible, because I wanted to refute a Christian and was looking for contradictions. Then God spoke to me, "Vera, everything you are reading there is the truth." That is why I will always defend God's Word wherever I can, and it looks rather bad in the world. Pastors are not allowed to preach everything from the Bible anymore, otherwise they will be punished, and that not only in Muslim countries but in Australia, for example.

After my conversion and the time before that I was hungry fort he Word of God – and still am. I learned as much as I could and had to catch up with many things. The "Year of Silence" (2010, I think) came, and I refused meditating with my Bible group, which was "breathing Jesus in, breathing Christ out", for example. That must have been the beginning of the introduction of false teaching at my former Baptist church… Why should I breathe Christ out? Was it because only the Jesus as the Muslims regard Him would be left in me? Oh well at that time I did not understand it all. It is sad to see how they try to teach the Gospel is wrong to the people. One of the leading brains of the Baptists expressed it like this once, "We really need to get rid of our fundamental egg shells." Well, it looks like I am such a garbage for them, and surely many others are, too. It is too bad that God will also have His say about that. Anything is going to His plan anyway. The falling away of the church actually has to come…

NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES

by Vera Six

"Moses interceded for Israel after catching them in orgiastic idolatry at the foot of Mount Sinai. After he confronted and dealt with their sin, he turned to the Lord and prayed, "Alas, this people has committed a great sin, and they have made a god of gold for themselves. But now, if You will, forgive their sin—and if not, please blot me out from Your book which You have written!" Moses was willing to forfeit his life for his people, even though they were guilty of wicked rebellion!" - John MacArthur

Some Christians say we are to pray for other people's salvation, "no matter what it takes". This is true, but it should better be "NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES *US*, THE   PRAYER WARRIORS". US US US US US US! Moses was prepared to lose his salvation FOR OTHERS. He did not pray for others to be punished for their sins or that the LORD would stop them sinning or send them into slavery. He prayed for God's forgiveness, not for "whatever it takes the sinners and their family". It is completely against the Commandment of love to think praying for evil to come over others is an evangelistic means to do. It is a help for the devil to get another even stronger hold of sinners, and of course he will willingly respond to such a curse, that is all. Yes, this is a curse, not a prayer.

I will give you another example... Let us imagine a pair of unbelievers lives in sin, and a Christian prays for their seperation, "no matter what it takes", since she knows the young men would probably take drugs again and lose every hold he had. She prays for this situation to come, and her mother gives her an amen. She even thinks she has done something good, because she had the pairs' salvation in mind. Then one of the pair breaks up the relationship as desired by the strange prayer warrior who now even goes so far to tell the young man's mother that she prayed for this to come, so her prayers were heard, and if she did not accept that, she just hated God's will, and if she doubted her, she would actually blame God.

Really, such people can make me sick. They never learn anything if you tell them, and will defend their ideas "no matter what it takes OTHERS". I wonder if it is just the lack of intelligence that drives them, or the lack of love or both. But they pump themselves up as if they were the Elders of others. LORD, have mercy! Praise You my GOD, for You are greater than Your enemies. Bless my enemies and show me where I can do them good. Amen.

Christian leadership - 1 Corinthians 9:18

What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel. (1 Corinthians 9:18 KJV)

So says Paul.  Unfortunately lots of christian leaders of today have a completely different view on that... It is not condemnable to be paid for one's job, but selling the flock to the devil in secret and sacrificing to idols just for the disdainful mammon and fame and church growth might not really be welcomed in Heaven.

Freedom in Christ

The first Christians were the first to be freed from the law by the grace of God. There is fredom for us all, Heaven and eternal life in addition. Could I ask for more? Gratefully will I live my life until the last day on earth. I am valuable, because God Himself loved me enough to die for me in my place.

There is none that doeth good, no, not one. Romans 3:9-12 KJV

What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. (Romans 3:9-12 KJV)

Hard words from the Apostle Paul citing from the old Scriptures. Nobody there doing good? But are we not good enough already as we are? Finally, God made us exactly this way. Again and again I am reminded of seeing good in mankind by others. Yes, it is true, each person got the spark of life from God that keeps him alive, gives reason for hope and love, drives him to get aware of himself and to seek God. Looking into this world I can see God wherever there is something good, but unfortunately, I can also see the fall of this world from God's glory: Half of the world is fighting its own species. Banks and other capitalists dominate the world and play an evil game with the poor. We are not ourselves who determine what to do anymore – those times are over. Everywhere there is the fear of unemployment and poverty, of natural catastrophes, of the hatred of the world – but nobody still fears God. If there was more fear of God and love for the neighbour, we might manage building up a little Paradise in our own small universe on earth.
