“The Lord Jesus Has Raise An Arsonist For Himself. ”

November 10, 2014

Only a private walk in our inmost, will sustain us in times of crisis and loneliness in a cold, impersonal, dark, violent, and immense universe . 

God is a personal God who is the creator of all things.
God has manifested himself in the person of Jesus the Lord.
God entered into time and space for a little while.
God visited Earth long enough to revealed the love of God for us.
God lured us and conquered our heart by given his son’s life for us.
God has given us a reason to worship him enthusiastically forever .

It is not a sense of duty that will motivate us to worship God on our knees and make us bow down before him forever and ever.  It is going to be a sense of uncontainable gratitude and appreciation of God that will compel to praise his name . 

It will be the result of the ever increasing understanding of the love of God manifested in Jesus and his atonement, that will make eternity not long enough to express our thankfulness to such a redeemer, for granting us citizenship in heaven with the rank of a Son of God.  

This fact alone will make worship a joyful task and not a burden. 


On Earth, our arthritic boney knees and our partial understanding of God's work on our behalf, restrains our endurance in prayer and worship.  Love is in the given.  For God so loved the world, "That he gave". 


When one gives what he is, what he has and what he can in order to purchase a treasure; then his heart is where his treasure is. 
God gave his one and only beloved Son for us.  He paid a high price for us.  We are his treasure and God's heart is with us. 


Worship is not worship if it does not cost us a thing. 


David understood God's love for him and did not want to give God something that did not cost him a thing; so when he wanted to build for God he refuse to take for free a piece of land from Araunah the Jebusite and paid from his own pocket the price of the land. 


Likewise father Abraham paid and did not want to take for free the cave of Machpelah from Ephron the Hittite to bury his wife Sarah. 


In the same way our Father in Heaven did not acquire us by a dictatorial act of his Sovereign power and Authority . 

God in an act of love and supreme righteousness, paid a great price for us, so he too may enjoyed our praise as a well deserved thankful act for his work of creation, salvation, sanctification, glorification and exaltation. 


For over thirty years I used to be paid to be good as a missionary. 


My service of worship to God did not cost me a thing personally . 

But now that I am a jobless retiree and without health and life insurance and salary, without even my pension since the end of August; I find sweet to be “good for nothing”, therefore, it is now when I have the freedom to give out my utmost for his highest and I have the freedom to write and speak without fear of embarrassing my bosses and supporters.  

I refuse to give God that which is not going to cost me a thing . 

************************************************


As I was approaching full retirement, there was a period of draught of about three months that the clear and fluent voice of God seem to be absent from my ears; then I asked the Lord “Talk to me Papa, talk to me in a special way as only you know how” . 

Even though brother Jared Kauffman would be against the practice of opening the scripture and putting your finger in a verse and taking that verse seriously; I have to remind myself that even when you throw a dice on a table it is under the sovereign control of God in how the numbers come up . 

I did not do exactly that to hear God, but I did pray and was lead to the book of double blessings; the book of revelation, where the Lord promises a blessing to those who read it and hear it . 

As I was reading and listening the recording of the letter to the church of Thyatira a very specific message, tailor for my needs, “pop out” . 

As a drop of water is equal to another drop of water; so is a man's heart equal to another man heart.

As the church of Thyatira is basically equal to a church of today, I believe that a believer of that time is equal to a believer today . 

Applying this principle I found a message from God to my needs . 

Judge for yourself (Key verses are highlighted on yellow;:

To the Church in Thyatira.
18 "To the angel of the church in Thyatira write: These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze.  19 I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.  20 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess.  By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols.  21 I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling.  22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways.  23 I will strike her children dead.  Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.  24 Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan's so-called deep secrets (I will not impose any other burden on you): 25 Only hold on to what you have until I come.  26 To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations-- 27 'He will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery -- just as I have received authority from my Father.  28 I will also give him the morning star. 29 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. 

***************************************
 From verse 19, I can conclude for myself that:
The Lord knows my deeds.
The Lord knows my love for him.
The Lord knows my faith.
The Lord knows my service.
The Lord knows my perseverance.
The Lord knows my work when I was younger.
The Lord knows my work now that I am older .

****************************************
The Lord knows also all my circumstances.
 ***************************************

The Lord has quit down my heart with his instructions to his retired servant by the following words:

Take it easy, “I will not impose any other burden on you. ”
But stay the course, “ Only hold on to what you have until I come.”

**************************************

I have been released by my “Superior” from mew enterprises but reaffirmed on that which he has entrusted me to pursue . 

Please pray as the Lord leads now that I go to the Andes Mountains of Peru.  Pray that the Lord may use me as I try to put in fire up in the Andes that which I stated in Germany with:
“The Munich Manifesto of the followers of Jesus 2012”,
“The Bogota call to listen to Jesus” 2012,
“The China and Hong Kong attempt to spark a fire through the Lord’s Prayer” 2012,
“The Pennsylvania challenge to testify if you care” at the Lancaster PCA of 2013,
“The Tokyo and Osaka challenge with the power of Faith and Prayers” of 2013,
“The Covenant College challenge to make disciples the World” of 2013 and:
“The Manifesto of Kathmandu and Huanta 2014” from Nepal with my Tibetan, Indian, Butanes brothers from the Himalayans’.

The idea is to put the world on fire and ask the Lord in a subversive way for his kingdom to come in our generation .

The idea is to promote repentance among believers for the weak use of his power available to us in Jesus .

The Idea is to take Jesus at his word and walk in agreement with his immutable and ever prevailing will .

The idea is to put our live in alignment with God and have all things a prayer away .

The idea is to persuade each other to come to believe fully what we said to believe .

The idea is to promote death to self and alive in Jesus .

The idea is the supreme small obedience to truly believe in the unity of two or three as the basis of the Jesus revolution that the answer of prayers rests in this requisite of Jesus .

The idea is to accept the tremendous value on the unity and oneness of two or three that by far is more important in God’s sight than the togetherness on thousands.  Jesus and Peter, James and John.  (Even in you do not succeed, the principle is worth dying for)

The idea is to go back to basis all the way to our first love in Jesus and never settle for look warmness, less he spits us back out of his mouth .

The idea is to witness by being against self in regard to the claims of Jesus. To stand up for Jesus, for he stood up for us .

The idea is to pray unceasingly the strong prayer of Jesus, the only prayer that is worth God’s ears and attention and that is: “Not my will but your will be done”.  Should you prefer a shorter prayer, then the word is "YES" to all even before you hear the command .

The idea is to be consciously aware that as predestined beings, we will not go home a minute early or a minute late .

The Idea is to live our immutable and predestined destine in a unchangeable way till the world will see the invisible in us who live supernatural lives in the most natural way.
