Silk Pink Roses

Mini silk arrangements.  Dust is easy to remove off of silk flower arrangements. That can be done by means of a soft- or feather brush or an handheld hair blow-dryer.

What is so nice about creating a silk arrangement that you continue the next day. Fresh arrangements, it is better to finish it right a way.

After two days of traveling, on the third day, God gave Abraham a vision. It was just before the Patriarch was to offer his only son Isaac. Abraham knew a Redeemer Kinsman would come. Also, God promised that he, Abraham, would become a father of many nations. And kings shall come out of thee. This promise of God to Abraham is still in physical existence today. Genesis 17:4-6

Pansies

Pansies come in a great variety of colors and come with and without “smiling faces”.  The lovely flowers flourish best in the springtime or in the fall.  And they even can withstand some frost.

.Jesus Christ introduced Himself as Jesus of Nazareth. Acts 22:8 The NT mentions Jesus of Nazareth seventeen times. The prophets prophesied about the Branch. Because the word Nazarene (nazar) means branch.

Cozies And A Pincushion

The cozies are crocheted with a single crochet. Crocheting is always a pleasant pass time.

The pincushion is sewed by hand,  of course. Most of what I call fun sewing I do by hand. This will probably end up as a small gift for someone, or may be as a consolation prize for a bingo game. I cannot keep everything I make.

I have always enough remains of yarn and fabrics at hand.

James, a servant of Christ, writing his epistle to all the Israelites scattered abroad.

The Pagan Trinity Versus the Divine Godhead

THE DIVINE GODHEAD
The Mystery of Godliness, the Godhead (or Deity) is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ the God of the Old Testament. The I AM THAT I AM. It was God Himself Who fulfilled the Law, the Ten Commandments HE once gave to Moses.

The Name Jesus, the God of the Old Testament is revealed in the New Testament.

Matthew 1: 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

  • Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. (God with us)

The Godhead is IN Jesus Christ Who is God and not three persons composed into one part called a trinity, or tri-unity.
The Godhead or Deity simply means Divinity, Divine.

In 1John 5:7 it says these Three ARE ONE. It does not say these three are a trinity. Quite the contrary.

  • Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is One LORD:
  • 1Kings 8:60 That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else.
  • Isaiah 42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
  • Isaiah 43:15  I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.
  • Isaiah 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me.
  • Isaiah 45:6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.
God’s wonderful Mystery for us humans not to comprehend.

THE PAGAN TRINITY
Trinity is a pure heathen concept and an abomination in the eyes of the LORD.
Every religion and culture have their trinity that dates back to the Tower of Babel. The trinity of the gods is three persons: male, female, and child.

  • Nimrod,  Sun-god, father
  • Semiramis, Moon-goddess, mother
  • Tammuz– Reborn sun,- son

Ezekiel 8:13, 14 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do. Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD’S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

Each pagan religion has its own, trinity. Male, female, and son. Three different persons forms a trinity:

  • Assyria: Ninus, Beltis, Hercules
  • Babylon: Belus, Istar, Tammuz
  • Egypt: Ra, Isis, Horus
  • Greece: Zeus, Aphrodite, Dionysus
  • Hindu: Vishnu, Chandra, Krishna
  • Lebanon Baal, Ashtoreth, Tammuz
  • Luciferian: Lucifer, Diana, Anti-christ
  • Phoenicians El, Astarte, Bacchus
  • Rome: Jupiter, Joro, Thor.

The Catholic Church made the pagan trinity a little bit Christian. However, Christian is not Catholic and Catholic is not Christian:

  • God the Father, Virgin Mary, Jesus.

Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 

Deuteronomy 17:3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;

THE TRINITY OF SATAN

satan, (imposter) the antichrist, (masquerade) the false prophet (liar).

The world is nearing the end days. The father of lies is working overtime because he knows his time is running out.

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Let us serve and worship the One and Only God the LORD, Jesus Christ, with fear and trembling.

The 5 Shocking Truths about the Trinity

Ascension Day

Ascension Day. Forty days after the Day of Resurrection. Commemoration Day of Christ Jesus returning to Heaven to the Father; He was taken up in the clouds.

Acts 1:9-11  “And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And when while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said Ye man of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into Heaven? this same Jesus Which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into Heaven”   

Jesus Christ will come back as soon as He has prepared the place for us in one of the many mansions of the Father’s House. So that we also can be where He is.

John 14:2,3  In my Father’s House are many mansions: if it were not so I would have told you, I go and prepare a place for you  3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive unto Myself, that where I am there ye may be also.

God, Jesus Christ will come for His bride, a remnant of the Israelites and for those who shall call upon the LORD. 

Matthew 24_30KJB.png

The Two Vines Who is the Fourth Person?-Part 5

Who was the fourth Person in the fiery furnace with the three friends of Daniel? Jesus Christ Himself!

Daniel 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

The modern translations claim it was not Jesus Christ Himself but some son god.

  • NLT fourth looks like a god 
  • CSB a son of the gods 
  • ESV a son of the gods
  • NASB a son of the gods
  • NIV a son of the gods
  • CSB a son of the gods 
Daniel 3_24-25KJB.png

The reason for the above modern translation is because Nebuchadnezzar did not know Who the God of the Hebrew people was! O, yes the king most certainly did!

Daniel 3:26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed–nego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed–nego, came forth of the midst of the fire.

Daniel 3:29 Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed–nego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.

Jesus Christ, the Fourth Person in the fiery furnace took the threesome to the fourth- a higher dimension. That’s why they had no burns nor any smell on them.

Daniel 3:27 And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.

The following Bible verse comes to mind

  • Isaiah 43:2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

Another thing is, the first four chapters of the Book of Daniel, also deal with that God is showing Nebuchadnezzar Who HE,  God is. God wants Nebuchadnezzar to know this. Nebuchadnezzar must know that it is God Who gave him that kingdom. That it is the God of Daniel Who appoints kings and rulers.

Daniel 2:20,21 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: 21/ And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding.

The sons of the god(s)

Revelation 1:1,2  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2/ And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

They are devils and Apollo is one of them, Their faces and hair were that of a woman. They have a male body. They are androgynous.

Revelation 9:10-11 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. 11/ And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. 

These devils are the evil angels Would the three friends of Daniel have been rescued from the fiery furnace by these creatures that the threesome did not want to bow for in the first place?

Jesus of Nazareth

Before I start this post I like to express that any other person from another race will also be saved when they call upon the Lord. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, or what you have done. At that time through Jesus Christ these issues are not important anymore. Anyone who turned to God their life matters despite failures and shortcomings. There are numerous ungodly White people, However, the sayings in the Bible will remain.

The main reason for this– and my previous post is only to show through the Bible Who Jesus truly, is.

My previous post may not be a representation of Christianity that Jesus was a Jew, however, the Bible reveals this reasoning quite differently.

Jesus Christ introduced Himself to Paul when he was on his way to Damascus as “I am Jesus of Nazareth.” In two of his epistles Paul confirmed this fact and this is prophesied by Isaiah.

Acts 22:8 And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth,

Romans 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

Revelation 5_5KJB.png

Romans 15:12 And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.

Isaiah 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

The White people in the world are Israelites. Isaiah’s prophecy

Isaiah 62:2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.

That new name we find in, 

Acts 11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

Jeremiah 32_38KJB

And what did Peter, accompanied by John, say to the lame man at the entrance of the temple?

Acts 3:6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

Aren’t we denying our heritage by claiming the White people aren’t the Biblical Israel? I was there once as well.

1Peter 4:16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

Many Bible verses in the New Testament are quoted from the Old Testament. We now have a new Covenant, but God’s heritage, promises. and sayings are still the same as are His people. A representation of Christianity does not change this fact.

Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

  • Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Jesus was not Jewish by Arnold Kennedy

Christian Identity. What is it? by Pastor Mark Downey

Also a link to a You Tube Video “Was Our Lord A Jew”

Was Jesus Christ A Jew?

Was Jesus Christ a Jew? Several answers in the Bible tell us and history as well that the Redeemer Jesus Christ was not a Jew. Thus the answer is NO. If Jesus Christ was a Jew HE is another “Jesus” for sure.

To avoid a senseless discussion Jesus Christ is called “King of the Jews” by Pilate. True, but does that prove anything? Did Jesus Christ ever introduce Himself as a Jew? It also applies to the Samaritan woman at the well not knowing, thought Jesus Christ belonged to the Jews. 

HE is Jesus Christ

1/– Jesus Christ never introduced Himself as a Jew, 

2/– Humanly speaking, Jesus Christ was of the tribe of Judah and of the generation of David. Of course, so was His mother Mary and His guardian Joseph. The generation of David was a particular lineage in the House of Judah. Matthew 1 and Luke 1. Mary and Joseph had to travel from Nazareth to Bethlehem to be taxed. 

  • Luke 2:4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he (=Joseph) was of the house and lineage of David)

3/– Matthew repeated what the prophets of God prophesied.

  • Matthew 2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He (=Jesus Christ) shall be called a Nazarene.

The word “nazar”, “nazarene”, in English means branch.

  • Jeremiah 33:15, In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.
  • Zechariah 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:

4/– Although born in Bethlehem, Jesus Christ was brought up in Nazareth. The events, miracles, and His preaching of His Ministry for the greater part were in Galilee. The times Jesus Christ was in Jerusalem was during Passover to fulfill the law. It was then when Lord Jesus threw the tables of the money changers upside down. The third time He suffered and died for our sin and is risen indeed on the third day.

Jesus Christ was first brought to Pilate but then to Herod. And why was that? Because Jesus Christ never was an inhabitant of Judea but of Galilee.

  • Luke 23:5-7 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place. 6/ When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilæan. 7/ And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.

5/– In the time of Esther, the Medio-Persian empire had 127 different provinces. The provinces extended from Greece to India, from Turkey to the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean. That is quite an empire with a lot of different people. Everybody called themselves Jews. A great part of the people became Jews. All these people became mixed multitudes of different nationalities and perhaps races. Therefore it absolutely, nullifies that the Jews are a pure offspring of Abraham. It is nothing but a mixture.
Was the Blood of Jesus Christ mixed with that of other people? If that were so then the bloodline of Jesus Christ would not have been for 100% pure.

But the Blood of Jesus Christ that paid for our sin and saved us was 100% pure Blood. And because the Blood of Jesus Christ was and is still powerful it cannot be anything different than 100% pure Blood. The pure Blood shed on the cross is the pure Blood of the finished Work we can rest in. The 100% pure Blood that makes us righteous before God.

Truth through history. People who were not even Jews by birth became Jews because they were afraid. 

  • Esther 8:17 And in every province, and in because every city, whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.

6/– Jesus Christ confronted the Jews. Matthew chapter 23 is the chapter of the woes.

  • Matthew 23:29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 
  • Matthew 23:31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
  • Matthew 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell.

The Jews are not his sheep that’s why they don’t hear His voice. The reason why the Jews do not believe is not because of their unbelief. It is simply because that they are not His sheep, to begin with.

  • John 10:26  But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
John 10_27.28KJB.png

7/–If Jesus Christ was a Jew He would have had mixed blood. Jesus Christ from His mother’s side was of the pure blood of the line of David. Mary’s conception. Fully Man.

  • Hebrews 10:5  Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me.

Jesus Christ from His Father’s side was Divine, of pure blood and of incorruptible seed. Fully God.

  • Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

If Jesus Christ would have been born a Jew His Blood would have had no power at all. There would have been no salvation!

When Jesus Christ, the Only High Priest is the most important Person in our lives and our sin is paid for in full with His precious Blood, isn’t it equally important to know Who our Redeemer truly is?

Hebrews 7:13-15 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar. 14/ For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. 15/ And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest

When we want to praise and exalt the LORD isn’t this also one way to do this? Instead of holding on to the deception and propaganda of the Edomites (the modern Jews) that they are God’s people? And shouldn’t we stop identifying Jesus Christ as a Jew?

Do the roughly 17 million Jews in the world. qualify for the:

  • “many nations”, Genesis 17:4-5,
  • “into a multitude in the midst of the earth”, Genesis 48:16,
  • “a multitude of nations”, Genesis 48:19?

Isaiah 62:2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.

That new name we find in, 

Acts 11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

Does it take the readers out of their comfort zone? It sure did me! But because of God’s never-ending faithfulness and an abundance of His grace, I am blessed.

He Is Not Here!

Biblical Meditation: to read Matthew 28:10

He is not here, for He is risen Matthew 28:6a.

Luke 24_34KJB.png

A shorter message of the Resurrection could not have been given by the angel. But isn’t this proclamation richer and more heavily laden with these few words “He is not here, for He is risen” It says it all for God has herewith said it all! He Who died in an untold shame and given to our sin and is risen to our justification.
The dead will hear the Voice of the Son of God and they will live. The Power of the Resurrection will prevail all battle and will restrain the gates of hell.

The Church of Christ will be guarded. We now have a preview of the sight of the New Heaven and the New Earth. The crown of satan has been pulled from his head. The sepulcher is open, death has no more dominion.
HE, Who restrained by death for us, and our sin has risen with great authority. The Bloodshed of the Saviour is the payment for our sin. Paid in full. The Death of the Saviour is the Victory over the grave. Death could not hold Him.

The women on their way to the Garden of Joseph of Arimathea were not able to suspect this at all. Look at all the herbs and spices they are carrying with them to pay their last respects and love for their Master. It goes without saying. Their faith is nowhere to be found, their hope has vanished for they are looking for Lord Jesus Who is dead. But their search for Him also shows the love that is drawing them to Jesus. Although they don’t know how to reach Him in the grave. But this love does not frighten them for any soldier nor for a stone that is barricading the entrance of the grave. They are continuing their way no matter what. Not because the love of these women would be strong enough. It is a matter of another Love. A Love that is stronger, a Love that is drawing closer. The Love of Him Who exchanges the herbs and the spices of death to the rolled-up linens of the grave. He is calling these women to His open sepulcher to share the joy of New Life. They now have a living Hope. Not the fruit of their searching but through the power of the Resurrection of Christ from the dead!

God has finished the Work of Christ on Golgotha through several signs. In the Garden of Joseph of Arimathea God has shown His wonders illustrating the Victory of Christ. The earth is shaking in a trembling rejoice. Soldiers are frightened because of the lightning. The power of hell is definitely, broken. Angels from Heaven to open the sepulcher and accompany the great Saviour when ascending to the Father. The foreshadowing of the great Day of the LORD, a Day of Hope for all who are IN Christ. Salvation is free and the angels will proclaim the glory of Jesus Christ. The great Day of the LORD, a Day of Judgment for those who do not believe.

But all these signs do not awaken the joy of the Day of the Resurrection. Should these signs frighten us instead that they give us a reason to rejoice? The words of the angel are telling us that the Day ought not to be fearful. The unbelief must go and the love must come into the heart and prevail. A proclamation of a heavenly messenger is needed. For everybody whose heart is possessed by the Love of God will there ever be a happier message proclaimed by the angel?

–Matthew 28:5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, Which was crucified.

His words are like the sound of a trumpet full of joy “He is risen, He is not here”. Yes, He died was buried and He was here. But His death is a victory over the grave. A Victory over the grave so that His own would be granted grace when passed on IN Christ. The Shedding of His Blood is the payment for sin. The mystery of the cross is revealed now the rock of the sepulcher has become the proclamation of the Resurrection. The power of sin and death the Saviour has dethroned. His own will now through grace share in His Resurrection. His Resurrection is a guarantee for all who are passing on IN Him. The voice of the archangel will awaken them. And Christ Jesus will meet His own with welcoming Hands.

Psalms 49_15.1Cor.15_55KJB.png

The Day of the Resurrection does focus our eyes on the last days to come. The last days to come are a guarantee that the end is nigh.

The Work is finished, the triumph has been obtained.
The Prince of Peace is Victorious.
The great Saviour Who was restrained by death for us and our sin HE has risen with great authority.
