Dreams can give great insight! A simple example — Kekule’s dream

Notice how the revelation wasn’t directly given;
though, this sometimes happens.

Kekule had to interpret the metaphor.

And then he ran with it.

And so should we.

Living in God, prayed up,
we shouldn’t be getting dreams from the dark side.

Kekule’s Dream
00:58 – 5 years ago

This animation tells the story of German Chemist, August Kekule. His famous dream of the Benzyne ring of carbon molecules advanced chemistry and helped lay the groundwork for many Nobel Prize winning disocveries of the Twentieth Century.

Salvation: 1 of 4 popular formulas — OR — being right with God and people, by His grace/enablement, “working out our own salvation through fear and trembling?” (Paul’s words)

I just have to say something.

I’m having an email discussion with a friend about who goes to heaven, and so much of what he’s saying is based on a formula, instead of “am I right with God because I’m really right with God and people?”

There are many formulas out there. In Lutheranism, it’s about getting infant baptized and confirmation — and perhaps communion. Based on this, Luther said: Martin Luther: Sin Boldly — “No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill or commit adultery thousands of times each day”.

In Catholicism, it’s also largely about baptism and the eucharist. Some still practice confession, but this is to a ‘priest’ (which have been done away with in the New Covenant where Jesus is our Priest), and rarely are those confessing actually told to get right with those they hurt. Say a certain number of “Hail Mary’s” or whatever and you’re scot free. Sad.

And for many evangelicals, it’s mainly about getting truly born-again, getting ‘saved.’ “It’s all about what He did for me.” “Grace.” “He’ll never let go; He’ll never let go; never let go….” Romans 8:1 has been gutted to put the responsibility all on God: “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

Another popular formula is Calvinism, which has always been to me so unbelievably out there, perhaps because I didn’t grow up among it. It shocks me when I find people who actually believe this. It’s kind of an ego/hubris thing, at least for many. Calvinists seem to think they are special because God chose them. In their way of thinking, Jesus didn’t die for everyone, just those Whom He chose, the elect, and God will be faithful to complete His work in them no matter how they respond, as long as they are truly chosen.

In my article,  Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God?, I chose to simply show what the Bible straightforwardly says about who goes to heaven and who really are God’s children.

Most of the above formulas are pulled mainly from a few key texts, some of which are in Paul’s introductions, in which he is just starting to formulate his ideas. We need to look at the development of Paul’s thought and particularly tune into his conclusions, which, by the way, agree with those of Jesus, John, James, the writer of Hebrews, etc..

These conclusions are that we need to truly be right with God to go to heaven. “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

The Devil wants us to focus on formulas and abstract theories, while Christianity and salvation is actually more simple, more straightforward — common sense.

Christianity is about relationships: having a right relationship with God and with those around us. Then we can rest. Then we are abiding in Him — “in Christ Jesus.”

Will we have faith to enter when it is our time to be judged? Will our conscience condemn us, or will we stand before Him clean? Then our names won’t be removed from the Book of Life (Rev. 3:1-6). Numerous scriptures point this out.

We’ll have faith because we’re clean — not just because of what Jesus did — but because we lived in Him, righteous, by His grace we overcame. We didn’t shrink back. We made sure that we stayed right with Him. We’re supposed to walk like Jesus walked. We can’t just do our own thing and think it’s okay because of some formula. “Without holiness, no man will see God.”

He died so we might have life — living in the Son. “Those who are Christ’s have crucified their flesh” (Gal. 5). We must obey. Obedience isn’t an option, because Christianity is about right relationships, not whether we fit into a formula, the demonic spins designed to distract us from what really is important.

Christianity is loving the Lord, our God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength, and our neighbor as ourselves.

Because ‘Christianity’ has largely abandoned the Greatest Two Commandments criteria, our society reflects this, and America is on its last breath.

Regarding predestination and election, I don’t think any of us fully understand it. I don’t think we’re supposed to. The main thing to realize is that when Paul warned Christians about falling away, he was writing to Christians whom he considered the predestined elect. What Paul wrote applied to them, then, and applies to us today.

We don’t need to understand foreknowledge, predestination and election. I’m not concerned about it. I believe that Jesus died for everyone, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to the knowledge of the truth.

I’m concerned with how Jesus, Paul, John, the writer to the Hebrews, James and others said we should live — and their warnings apply to us. What happens if we choose to not obey? This is what we should all be focusing on — getting it all right — living so right.

Then ONE will happen, and no matter what comes down in these coming years, we’ll be spiritually ready — eternally secure.

I know that I have a free will, and I know that I’m truly born again, just as very many really are. If I wanted to, I could live a willfully disobedient life and then go to Hell. But I choose to work out my salvation through fear and trembling (Paul’s words). And each day I have to overcome.

It’s not easy, but it will be when we’re all living in Christ together — ONE. “Then the world will know” and we will be so full of joy!

We should be focused on living Jesus’ Greatest Two Commandments instead of justifying our rightness based upon some doctrine-of-demons formula.

Let’s be real Christians!

Keith Green: Stained Glass — “The Bridegroom wants to shine through you!”

My colors grow so dim
When I start to fall away from Him
But up comes the strongest wind
That He sends to blow me back into his arms again

And then the colors fall around my feet
Over those I meet
Changing all the gray that I see
Rainbow colors of the Risen Son
Reflect the One
The One who came to set us all free

We are His daughters and sons
We are the colorful ones
We are the kids of the King
Rejoice in everything

We are like windows
Stained with colors of the rainbow
No longer set in a darkened room
Cause the Bridegroom wants to shine through you

MONUMENTAL Anchorage radio broadcast on 10/11! Download it while you can. KFQD talk show host, Dan Fagan puts his job on the line standing up for the unborn and Joe Miller against “publicly fund abortions” Lisa Murkowski. Dan calls men to be real men!

This podcast kfqd.com/podcast_info will probably only be available till today’s takes its place, probably late afternoon. Amazing show! Where is your line in the sand?

It really gets rocking about 18 minutes into hour 2 of the podcast — “I’m asking you to man up… what kind of man doesn’t stand up for the innocent murdering of kids… and have tax payers fund it” — and just keeps on rolling. Amazing!!!

This is a call to repentance.

Dan is totally putting his job on the line. He recently broadcast this WOW! Abortion survivor Gianna Jessen speaks before Aussie Parliament: “My whole intent in living here is just to make God smile”, which he said is the most important thing he’s ever done.

“One day we’re going to stand before God and answer for our sins…,” says Fagan. I’m just shocked! I was so disappointed in Dan being so pro war, but he just bats this one right out of the park, and he’s probably going to continue to do so until the election.

This may be only the beginning in what could be a tremendous about-face for Anchorage citizens!

Very moving broadcast!

Wow!

Richard Fine: His Darkest Moment in the LA County Jail and How He Overcame!

Believed that even solitary confinement would turn out for good.

“The way that you do it is that you become very spiritual.

By being a spiritual person, you basically end up believing
that no matter what happens it’s all going to turn out right.

It may not turn out the way that you may think should be right,
but in the totality of events, it will turn out right.”
