Work Out Your Own Salvation With Fear and Trembling- Scriptures Anyone?

There are a slew of new Bible authorities all claiming scholarship and understanding which all appear to be able to systematically make God into a god of love void of any judgment.  They have determined that hell is just a garbage dump, that the mention of hell and everlasting destruction and separation from God is just a conspiracy of the church fathers to scare anyone and everyone into submission.  As a person and a believer who claims the fear of God as my great treasure, they seem to think that I must just be a hell fire and damnation preacher who delights in the everlasting torture and destruction of wicked men.

As I faithfully read the scriptures and seek the leading of the Holy Spirit to lead me into all truth, they seem to judge me as unloving, bitter and hateful as I quote the scriptures,  I read the KJV – yet I am not a KJV only advocate, just the quoting of scriptures and speaking of them as the Holy Spirit has made them come alive to me over the years is enough in it’s self to bring their adverse and damning judgement upon me.  Many of these people will condemn all judgement, declaring God a God of love, while on the other side of their mouth judging me as having no fruit or being unloving.  These people do not know me, they have never seen me face to face, nor have they taken a look at my family, my seven children, nor any appreciable fruit in my life, they have a picture of me defined by their experiences with others and there I am in the box they have placed me in.

I have wondered why these people believe they will be saved, and exactly how they have worked out their salvation with fear and trembling?  Many of them have thrown out the scriptures or redefined them carefully so as to remove the judgmental portions, they have claimed that the Old Testament is about the God of judgement, but now the God of the New Testament has replaced the God of the O. T. as the God of love and grace for everyone.  Just the mere mention of scriptures of warning is enough to send them over the top, they only receive that which appears loving to them in their own view of “daddy” in heaven.  I keep on thinking and telling myself, how can these people escape hell who have remove the fear of God from before their eyes?  They have dictated to God concerning his righteousness, they have said “if God is righteous, then he wouldn’t do this nor that”, they have said “I am special to God and God will never leave me or forsake me, if I were the only person alive, Jesus would have died just for me.”  Why is the holiness and the righteousness of God and the fear of God removed from their eyes?While these people seek to make scriptures void, or reinterpret them, claiming the conspiracy of the church fathers, why are they not alarmed by the lack of scriptures pointing out the god they preach?

I am well aware that anyone who has been seeking the Lord and reading the scriptures clearly, they will know that the doctrine of dispensationalism is a lie, we are not indeed awaiting a secret rapture, instead there is judgement that must first begin in the house of God.  God does not dwell in temples made by the hands of men, he dwells in people, they are his temple.  No physical temple made by the hands of men could ever be defiled by the abomination of desolation, there is no physical temple that is holy, therefore it cannot be defiled, only that which is truly holy can be defiled.  So following I am going to post some scriptures of warning – how can these people be righteous who condemn me for quoting these scriptures?

(Psa 2:10-12) Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

(Php 2:12) Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

(Mal 3:16-18) Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

(Psa 76:10-12 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain. Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared. He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.

Do I really need anymore scriptures?  There are a ton of scripture that tell us that the beginning of wisdom and knowledge begins with the fear of God.  I don’t tell people what God will do and what he won’t do because he is righteous according to my judgment, rather I tell people that God is completely righteous and perfect in all of his ways.  Even if God puts me in eternal hell and torment, I wouldn’t have it any other way, for God created righteousness and he created evil, although he does not author evil, he still created it.  Just as darkness is only a lack of light, so is evil a lack of righteousness.  So I say, just as Job said, “though he kill me, yet will I serve him” – to whom else shall I go?  There is only one God, creator of heaven and earth, he doesn’t need me, I need him.  Although I love him, he first loved me!

Again I ask the question, how shall these men be found worthy to escape the judgement of God, who have removed the fear of God from before their eyes?

(Luk 21:34-36) And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Judgement must begin first at the house of God, he will finish this work before the judgement of the unbeliever, the spiritual land will be cleansed so that no unclean or uncircumcised person will dwell there.

(Zec 13:4-9) And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive: But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth. And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

If they are not preaching the God of the scriptures, but a god of “love” in their own image, then why are you listening to them?

Every man must work his own salvation out with fear and trembling and that will continue to be my stand, if everyone is saved then our salvation might not be so special and great after all, would it?

The Head of Every Man is Christ

Any teaching, doctrine or person that leads people to Jesus Christ as their head, is of the Lord.  Any teaching, doctrine or person who leads people to themselves, is of the Devil.  This is how you will know the servants of the Lord and the servants of the Devil, the king of Babylon.  He who glorifies the Lord is of God, he who glorifies himself is of the Devil, simple truth.

(1Co 11:3) But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

God has chosen the foolishness of Preaching to save those who are lost, he has also chosen the foolish things of this world to confound those who are wise in this world.

(1Co 1:25-29) Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.  For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:  But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;  And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.

Truth does not care about your feelings, it just is.

Jesus Christ is the Way, he is The Truth, he is The Life, he is also God, and God is Love.  Brothers and Sisters, there is no conflict in any of this.  We were created in his image, but sin has caused us to be separated from him.  God who created the heavens and the earth and everything in it is just, he does everything right, perfect in all of his works.  Look at the earth, that which we see with our eyes, it’s the work of God, God alone could create such a place, so perfect for human life, so perfect for animal life, God is just, he does no wrong.  God does not expect you to understand everything about him, he created you, you didn’t create him, he is who he is, he cannot be who you want him to be. God does not submit himself in his glory and perfection to his creation, if he did, he wouldn’t be perfect because his creation didn’t create him, he created them, he doesn’t need them, they need him.

Jesus is a Rock, But Ephraim Feeds on Wind

There is no more excuse for disunity in the body of Christ.  The days of confusion of faces are coming to an end very quickly, Babylon is coming down and it’s kingdom of rule.  The weaknesses of it’s fortresses are being discovered by it’s enemies, the vulnerability is becoming plain to see, even here in this article I will begin to expose it’s weaknesses, so vulnerable any child of God could come against it.  If you truly do love your brothers and sisters and those in your community, those in your sphere of influence, spread this word around, Babylon is coming down and the people of God are going to fight against it and bring it down!  Every word I have received from the Lord this year is true and right, this year in 2018, the Lord is doing a new thing, you just haven’t heard about it yet.  Spread the word far and wide, this is a rock, this is not wind, and every eye will see it and they will all know that there is a God in heaven who rules and reigns over the affairs of men.

Why I must Stand for the Good News

I can assure you that there are a good many people who have decided they don’t like me over the years.  I have tried as much as possible, just as the scriptures say, to live at peace with all men.  There is no man out there who I have stolen from, I haven’t mistreated anyone, I am an excellent heating and air contractor in So. Cal, all of my customers recommend me.  I have a large family, seven children, seven grandchildren and a wife of 32 years, all of these are witnesses to anyone willing to look at the grace, wisdom and blessings of the Lord to me and in my life.  Since the day I moved into this area, until now, 46 years have come and gone, I have been AOG, United Pentecostal, Baptist, Calvary Chapel, Vineyard, Foursquare Church, Presbyterian, all of these churches have either kicked me out, some physically, or would have no interest today for me to darkened their door and to be who I am in Christ, as Christ is my only head.

The Kingdom of God Has Come Part 2

Most people do not stop to realize the significance of the words of Jesus in the following when he said,

(Luk 13:34-35) O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

This is how the it works folk, this is what Jesus was saying, if the Jews would have received him, he would have ushered in the Kingdom of God and the Jews would be ruling and reigning with Christ on the earth today, with Jesus on the throne of David, but instead their kingdom became desolate, as it is today.  There are two workings of the Lord I want to point out here, Gathering and Scattering, we will talk more about this later.

The Kingdom of God is Come Unto You Part 1

Last night as I was meditating on the Lord in my sleep, a thought and concept came to me, and shortly thereafter scriptures started also pouring into my mind, confirming the concept.  I believe this is the Lord and his working, so here I sit this morning to speak what the Lord has given me to speak.

The Lord did not speak to his people, the Jews, for 400 years, no word of the Lord came to them, NOTHING!   It would appear that God had totally forsaken his people, they had fallen into false teachings, their leaders, the Scribes and Pharisees were corrupt to the core and Jerusalem had become a spiritual type of Babylon, holding the people of God in captivity under the banner of a corrupt religious authority.  And almost like a thief in the night, like a snare to come upon the religious establishment, a King was born who would rule and reign on the throne of David.  They did not realize it yet, but the Kingdom of God, his rule and reign, had come in the form of a baby boy.

The Wonderful Gospel of Suffering

It must have been more than 20 years ago that I got an invitation to attend a small meeting in Anaheim, California.  This meeting was a very special meeting of all the most holy men in the world who found it became fashionable to call themselves “Apostles”, so they called the meeting “The Apostles Gathering”.   I did not call myself an Apostle, I made that clear, but I have angered quite a few religious men in my life telling them this,  I thought my calling was to one day fill the shoes of an Apostle.  Well I have gotten wiser, so today I call myself a brother, a follower of Jesus, a servant of the Lord, a spiritual man, but I no longer tell folks that I will be an Apostle at a future date. See the distinction between the two?
