GODS HARVEST

 

Words of encouragement to those who
work in GOD’s Harvest.

(Written by George Douglas Watson, 1845-1924)

If God has called you to be really like Jesus, He will draw you to a life of crucifixion and humility, and put upon you such demands of obedience, that you will not be able to follow other people, or measure yourself by other Christians, and in many ways He will seem to let other good people do things which He will not let you do.

Other Christians who seem very religious and useful may push themselves, pull wires, and work schemes to carry out their plans, but you cannot do it.

Others may boast of themselves, of their work, of their success, of their writings, but the Holy Spirit will not allow you to do any such thing.

Others may be allowed to succeed in making money, or may have a legacy left to them, but it is likely God will keep you poor, because He wants you to have something far better than gold, namely, a helpless dependence on Him, that He may have the privilege of supplying your needs day by day out of an unseen treasury.

The Lord may let others be honored and put forward, and keep you hidden in obscurity, because He wants you to produce some choice, fragrant fruit for His coming glory, which can only be produced in the shade.

He may let others be great, but keep you small. He may let others do a work for Him and get the credit of it, but He will make you work and toil on without knowing how much you are doing; and then to make your work still more precious, He may let others get the credit for the work which you have done, and thus make your reward ten times greater when Jesus comes.

The Holy Spirit will put a strict watch over you, with a jealous love, and will rebuke you for little words and feelings, or for wasting your time, which other Christians never seem distressed over. So make up your mind that God is an infinite Sovereign, and has a right to do as He please with His own.

He may not explain to you a thousand things that puzzle your reason in His dealings with you. But if you absolutely sell yourself to be His …Slave, He will wrap you up in a jealous love, and bestow upon you many blessings, which come only to those who are in the inner circle.

Settle it forever, then, that you are to deal directly with the Holy Spirit. Then, when you are so possessed with the living God that you are, in your secret heart, pleased and delighted over this peculiar, personal, private, jealous guardianship and management of the Holy Spirit over your life…. you will have found the vestibule of Heaven.

AMEN and AMEN

The Only Eternal Book !

The Only Book that will live on Forever.

The imagination of our entertainment industry is producing movies based on what we know of the past and today. Then they draw from limited knowledge and postulate about what the future holds.

Amazingly if you look closely you will find Biblical themes and words from the Bible in their movies…especially science fiction. The most recent Superman parallels Christ in that mankind needs a Savior. The Transformers represent hidden guardians of mankind like the Angels watching over us, protecting us.

The same goes for the horror films that explore occult themes; many of which delve into the themes of Judgment written in the Book of Revelation.

Every scene of these movies and every word is nothing more than fiction portrayed as reality. The writers mix truth, error, fiction, legends and fairy tales together to weave stories that excite our imaginations.

In a very real sense Truth is stranger than Fiction. God has already recorded the past, the present and the future. The fascinating thing is that you literally can read the end of the story if you have the courage to do so.

Have you read the entire story through to the end?  I have, several times through the years. I have gone back in time through recorded history, back in time to the beginnings of creation and the universe; and back in time to the creation of an Angelic Race. And I have traveled into the future to read tomorrow’s headlines and the end of the story. It is both Awesome and Fascinating!

I am sure, like everyone else you are mesmerized and intrigued with knowing the future. There is a record of the history, written by the one who rules history itself. It’s a grand sweeping saga of mankind’s past, present and future. Its words are historically accurate and continue to come alive daily before your very eyes in the newspapers and on television.

It was written by the ONE who lives outside of time as an eyewitness account of events in the past, present and future. It was written by GOD and given to mankind to understand.

Begin reading the only book known to man that will show you how and what you MUST DO in order to spend eternity with God. The only book with documented miracles, and prophecies that are 100% accurate and prove that it was written by a Supernatural God…it is HIS-story, HIS-Autobiography, yet its ALL About YOU.

 

 

 

YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY

 

WHY ARE YOU RISKING YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY ON THE OPINIONS OF OTHERS; Rather than taking the time to EXPLORE GOD’S WORD FOR YOURSELF?

Many friends could care less about absolute truth or the consequences of ignoring the truth…..BUT YOU CANNOT!

God has made His Word SIMPLE and EASY to understand not complicated and unknowable. He uses an economy of words that explain concepts of great depth so all people can understand what HE means. Rest assured that God always means what He says and says what He means.

In me you live and move and have your being. Acts 17:28 

For you are my offspring. Acts 17:28

I  knew you even before you were conceived. Jeremiah 1:4-5    

 I chose you when I planned creation. Ephesians 1:11-12

With the latter said I am giving you an example below that will take you through the entire Bible message in 1 minute.

This will bring the point home that God is God and you are His Child and everything He has written to YOU in HIS BOOK is simple enough for HIS Children to understand.

YOU….WE …are all without excuse!

The Bible distilled down to 4 points
Four simple points. These four points contain depths of knowledge beyond our comprehension. For who among those He has created can say they understand Him or even begin to know HIM.

Point One: God had a vision to create an ultimate Holy and Eternal World where God and man would co-exist. This vision became reality when God said, “Let there be Light….” And so there was a place where God and man could walk together in a garden, in the cool of the day.

Point Two: Sin entered into this pristine world, twisting the relationship between God and man. This disease born on the dark wings of a fallen angel named Lucifer spread to every man and woman made in the image of God for all time.

Point Three: Two worlds now existed side by side. Two dimensions occupying the same space but not the same time. God in one and man in the other. But God promised to send His Son to redeem mankind and the world he lived in and re-unite both planes of existence…into ONE. And so the God / Man was born into the world to die for the world and make it ONE again.

Point Four: In the beginning everything was made new. Then for a time everything new became old and life became a cycle of continuing birth and death. But just as God had created the beginning He also created the new beginning of the end. God would bring forth new birth pangs that would ultimately give birth to a new blending of Earth and Heaven, a place where God and Man again would walk together forever.

The Bible is the Greatest Non-Fiction Story Ever Written and your Father…Almighty God wrote it especially for you and to you. The Bible is History. HIS-Story; the true story of the SON OF GOD…..JESUS !

And I heard THE FATHER say to me in my heart. Ernie, remind my Children that I Love Them.

WHO DOESN’T BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS GOD?

 

Many people peer back through the darkened pages of history and see a rather obscure picture of Jesus. They have heard of His 2,000 year old claim that He was God, but they don’t quite believe it.

They find it hard to accept the idea that a small – town Jewish carpenter could have been the creator of the world. They prefer to believe other, less sensational theories about Him. Here are some of those beliefs.

Jesus is a man who achieved great things….this view is held by the Mormon Church. They teach that Jesus was a Pre-existent spirit—but they believe that about everyone.

Jesus is a created being who was given the status of second-in- command….this view is held by Jehovah’s Witnesses. They teach that Jesus is a created individual who is the second greatest personage of the universe. He is a god, but not the Almighty God.

Jesus is a man no better than we are….this view is held by the Unification Church . They teach that Jesus’ value is no greater than that of any other man.

Jesus’ existence began at His conception….this view is held by the Way International. They teach that God created Jesus’ soul life in Mary at His birth.

Jesus is a prophet and messenger of God….this view is held by Islam. They teach that Jesus was only a messenger of Allah.

Jesus is less than most people think He is….this view is held by the Atheist. Most Atheists’ place Buddha or Socrates on a higher plane than Jesus.
Jesus is a great moral teacher….this view is held by the Unitarian Church. They teach that Christ was sent to earth as a great moral teacher rather than as a mediator.

Jesus is a mystic medium….this view is held by New Agers. They teach Jesus is a Chaneler. One of many ancients who give New Age adherents a glimpse at the past.

Jesus is a projection of our needs….this is the view of today’s psychologist’s and psychiatrist’s. Jesus is a culture hero who regardless of His historical existence, embodies the myth of the divine man.

One thing is for sure. Somebody is wrong! These people can’t all be right about Jesus. He cannot be exactly who all these people say He is. Many who think they know, don’t know. If He is only a prophet or a medium, then those who insist He is God are wrong.

If on the other hand He is God, then those who insist that He is only an exceptional man are wrong. Some might wish to have it both ways. In science and investigative journalism, we pursue truth passionately. Why should it be any different in this important realm?

Jesus IS the Messiah of Israel. He is hidden within the Old Testament Messianic Prophecies. He revealed as Emanuel “God With Us” in the New Testament.

His question to you is “Who Do You Say That I AM?”

Investigate for yourself as to who He is. Your answer becomes your choice and will determine the place you will live forever.

Death is only a door to your future.

Ancient Warriors with an Ancient Faith

 

“The two stood facing each other. God robed in light, each thread glowing. Satan canopied in evil, the very fabric of his robe seeming to crawl.

Satan rose slowly off his haunches. Like a wary wolf, he walked a wide circle toward the desk until he stood before the volume and read the word: Immanuel.

Immanuel? Satan muttered to himself. God with us? Satan’s hooded head turned squarely toward the face of God the Father.

NO. Not even you would do that. Not even you would go so far. The plan is bizarre! You don’t know how dark I’ve made the Earth. It’s putrid. It’s evil. It’s…

It is mine, proclaimed the King. And I will reclaim what is mine. Why: Satan asked. Why would you do this?

The Father’s voice was deep and soft… Because I love them.”
( Max Lucado…Cosmic Christmas)

Because I love them is a phrase that rolls off our tongues with ease. For there are many that we love, husbands, wives, children, grandchildren and friends. But this statement from the lips of God means so very much more than that.

Wrapped up in it is the Mystery of Grace that speaks of a ransom paid in blood, a ransom paid in full…a legacy of love from the edge of eternity past.

There is more to the phrase…Because I love them… I chose to die so they might live, said JESUS. And for those who believe in this Death of God, there is life eternal with HIM. I have learned to love the Word of God and let it dwell in me richly. The word of God has etched upon my mind the Look of HIM whom I crucified. Yet when our eyes meet, I see only HIS love for me.

Through His pure atoning Grace, He came to die that I might live. You and I have never been loved like this before.

Yes, God loves us humans and offers Salvation to all that would come to His SON JESUS in Repentance through the ONE Way of His Sons Cross.

We are a people called to remember both His Birth, His Life and His Cross. One event could not happen without the others. The three events together guarantee the fourth event…His Return and Reign.

Blessed are those who are invited to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

“Then I saw a new Heaven and a new Earth…And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them.

They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes.

There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”
Revelation 21:1, 3-5.

Barbra Streisand sang one of my favorite songs called… “There’s a place for us, somewhere a place for us. Take my hand and I’ll take you there, take my hand and we’re almost there. Somewhere, Somehow, we’ll find a new way of living, we’ll find a way of forgiving…Somewhere.”

We were all made for one person and one place. Jesus is the person. Heaven is the place. I look forward to worshiping our King very soon with you and with the Holy Angels…. Forever and Ever…. AMEN.

An Ancient Faith, in The Ancient of Days !

Of late I have had the distinct dis-pleasure of meeting fellow Christians who stated that ONLY their denomination understood and followed the correct interpretation of the Bible.

They made it clear to me what they believed and that they were right and the rest of the denominations were wrong.

They stated clearly what parts of the Bible they accepted.

 I thought it was;  ALL Gods Word or not Gods Word at all !

When I am asked about which denomination I belong to I say…”I am not a Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Catholic, Lutheran, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Eastern Orthodox or Messianic Jew.

I follow the original. The One True Church made up of Born again Christians and Born Again Jews. My worship and my allegiance is to the One Founder of the One True Faith…Messiah Yeshua, Jesus The Christ, the Son of God.

You will find me daily before HIS CROSS on my face in the Judean dirt before His Nail Pierced Feet.

HIS Church began at the Cross and has remained the same for 2,000 years…Salvation by Faith Alone, by Grace Alone, In Christ Alone!

We do not add bodies to his church…HE ALONE builds HIS CHURCH.

Together each of us belongs to an Ancient Faith. Together we are HIS called out ones…His Church…His Ecclesia…His Temple made up of Living Stones.

I hope the walls that separate us will come down some time in the future. I hope we will focus on sound doctrine. I hope every Church that claims Christ will preach not only about His Love, but also about His Coming with Fire in His Eyes; in Judgment, which is the real reason to FEAR THE LORD.

I hope we stop arguing about who among us is right. So once and for all we can act like family…for that is what we are…Brothers and Sisters in Christ…CALLED  by HIM to LOVE One Another.

Focusing on our differences and defending our points of view especially when we cannot support them by the Word of God… is wrong!

The ONLY right is what should unify us…HIS CROSS!  The great commission is not to go out to the world and argue. We are called to go out to the world with the Gospel of Salvation in Christ alone.

The Apostle Paul set the pattern for ALL Believers 2,000 years ago…Preach His Crucifixion, His CROSS and His Resurrection and the hope we have as believers established solidly in the fact that He is Coming Again Soon, But ONLY for HIS Ecclesia!

Listen to the Living Dead !

Sharing a Memory with you from my Past…just after I became a Jewish Believer in Yeshua / Jesus…. May 18th, 1985 @ 6:30 pm at the age of 38.

IF ONLY THE DEAD COULD TALK AT THEIR FUNERAL. THEN THE LIVING DEAD WOULD KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT HELL.

I am writing this because recently I came home from an orthodox Jewish funeral service for the last remaining Holocaust Survivor in my family.

It was touching to have the son’s; daughters and grandchildren come up to speak of their love for their Grandfather.

It was heart breaking to watch as they poured out their own tears speaking of their love for the departed.

Then the orthodox rabbi came up, the learned scholar, the righteous man came up to speak about the departed. He spoke eloquently about their faith in God, about their kindness, about their giving to charities and about how God considers them righteous before Him because of their good works.

He said we would all, together see the departed in heaven, where he now waits for us. This rabbi as all rabbis do, picked and choose Scriptures out of context showing himself to be a man who understood the word of God; all the while giving everyone false eternal security based on false statements.

Having just come to Faith in YESHUA / JESUS, I stood up among 125 Jewish relatives and friends, raised my fist at the Rabbi. Then turned my back to everyone and left. Two weeks later I was told that I was dead to the family.

Rabbis have said to me, that at the end of this dark tunnel we call life they see light from heaven. The reality of the statement is that if you do not realize that you are a sinner in need of being Saved by a Savior whose Name is YESHUA / JESUS, then the light you see in the distance is not light but the fire from an inferno that awaits you. An Eternal fire you do not want to enter into.

The Nation of Israel and its Rabbis are NO LONGER PEOPLE OF THE BOOK. GOD has blinded them to the Truth contained in the Old Testament Prophecies that identified the Coming MESSIAH as JESUS. The Rabbis are still today too Arrogant to read the New Testament which proves that the life JESUS lived on Earth proclaimed the Truth of Messianic Prophecies in the Old Testament.

The Truth declaring the Birth, Life, Death on the Cross, Burial, Resurrection and SOON 2nd COMING of JESUS as the SON of GOD, the Messiah of Israel and all nations, the Coming KING of ETERNITY.

HIS TOMB IS EMPTY ! ! !

Trees Never Bury Their Dead

The Creation, having not been made in the image of God, and having no ability to reason, or to think…KNOW their Creator. The Creation as God Himself has said, groans bearing the weight of the curse, and anxiously awaits its removal and the re-creation of a new earth promised by God.

When one of us dies a memorial service is held. Pleasant words are spoken about us by loved ones and friends. Our life is portrayed by photograph’s that surround our coffin. It is an event for the living, not the dead.

Then solemnly we bury our dead. The dead are remembered but for a short time, then forgotten by generations to come. They are lost behind the veil of time.

Not so with Trees. For the Trees never bury their dead. In life the trees are wrapped in garments of leaves that God decreed would reach up to the heavens and worship Him.

From the very beginning, from a seedling, the trees focus is upward to its Creator. In life trees performed their job, their role, and calling before their Creator in loving obedience.

They provided cover and homes for animals. They provided the coolness of shade, and bore fruit for mankind. They provided oxygen for the earth, so we would have an atmosphere conducive to life. And they sacrificed their very essence for the benefit of their appointed caretakers.

Yes, mankind was given dominion over the trees and over all creation by God. But the main calling of trees was to lift up HOLY hands and clap in worship to their Creator when the Holy Spirit moved them by the wind.

They know the story that is written in the Word of God. They know the story that man continues to ignore. They know it’s beginning because they were there. They live in hope because they know it’s ending as they groan and wait for their Redemption. And they do for us what we are too ignorant to do for ourselves or for others.

They pray that our eyes would be opened and we would catch the vision of our LORD lifted HIGH up upon HIS Throne.

 

Messiah Revealed  

 

Their faces I formed so that mine they would see.

Ears to listen for the Word I would speak.

Eyes to see, minds to understand.

All they required I made with my Hand.

The Law and the Prophets for centuries foretold.

The birth of a baby begotten of old.

In words UN-Encoded, with language so plain.

That even the simplest could call on my name.

Fathom mysteries confounding the wise.

See the Messiah through a child’s eyes.
