Update- This Sunday I shared a ‘re-post’ of a past Sunday teaching.
I added the verses below [in the verses section] for the video I made for Sunday [ 1–6–19].
I have missed- or ‘passed up’ chances to to do some of my off the cuff videos this past week-
And I do plan on doing those updates from time to time.
As of now I’m trying to focus on posting videos and posts that teach.
Posts that will educate people- often times in areas that are really not that exciting.
But they are important.
As most of you know I read thru the bible- the whole bible- on a regular basis.
I do this every night- and have been doing it for years.
In order to teach- to communicate- you need to study.
As I have been learning new sites- going thru the whole process of developing effective systems to communicate-
I see that it is easy for the younger generation to master these types of skills- most kids in the 1st grade know how to use a smart phone!
Yet many of the older generation have never even learned how to get on-line.
But much of what people use these great advances in technology for are actually things that don’t matter- in the end.
So for now- I’ll leave this update as is.
I encourage you- all of you- to redeem the time- to use the skills you do have- for an eternal purpose.
When we teach the Word of God- and make plain the gospel- then yes-
It does have an eternal impact.
The simple message of the gospel has been handed down from generation to generation.
The apostle Paul hand wrote the letters we find in our New testaments [yes- he had others write for him as well- as he dictated].
But the point is- he had such limited resources and time- but the message of Christ was deemed so important that after he wrote the letters- he would send them out- and ask that the letters would also be read- passed around to the other communities as well.
And it was in this simple act of discipline and obedience- that we can Google each and every word Paul wrote-
And brilliantly it will pop up on every device you can imagine.
But first- he had to sit- and write- at times he practiced this discipline- even while sitting in a jail cell.
So I guess this little update has some teaching value-
And Yes- I had to set aside about 20 minutes to do it!
God bless you all-
NOTE [Past posts below]
I made 2 videos on this Sunday- not realizing it was ‘planned’ that I would do this.
On Sunday I usually cover the verses- message from one of the local churches I attend- and the verses from the Sunday Mass.
But I also wanted to cover some breaking news- and tried to to that on the first video-
Which I posted the other day.
I also talked about war- killing- the political motivations that have played an role in war.
I also talked about Isaiah 6 on the first video of that Sunday.
Then I went to church- Church Unlimited.
Pastor Bil Cornelius is doing a series ‘’at the movies’’ — and he showed clips of the movie Hacksaw Ridge.
The true story of a Christian who took the commandment-
Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.
as meaning he should never kill another- not even in war.
During the service I was getting worried because there were not a lot of verses I could speak on.
I didn’t have time to listen to the Sunday mass on the radio- so I figured I would use the verses from the sermon.
But there weren’t many-
So- I just waited for Bil to share a verse or 2 while they were showing clips of the movie.
Those are the verses I talk about on today’s video.
Most people who have seen the movie will rightfully praise the story of Desmond Doss-
The christian conscientious objector who refused to kill- based on the plain words of the bible.
They will watch the story of how he risked his life by being a medic- and how God supernaturally protected him on the field- while heroically saving his own men.
Yet- many of us will miss the simple message.
Desmond took the words THOU SHALT NOT KILL literally.
He believed them- and sure enough- he was right- which is what makes the story so valuable.
Yet- many who view the movie will rarely re-think the causes of war- killing.
Many will praise Desmond for believing these words THOU SHALT NOT KILL and yet leave the theater- and continue to believe that war- killing- is ok.
One of the verses Bil quoted was actually what I taught about on the first video of this Sunday-
Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
Isaiah 6:9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
It was the prophetic calling of Isaiah- that would challenge the norms of the day.
As I taught on the other post- it was Isaiah challenging mindsets among the people of God.
How could they be so wrong in their sincere worship of God- and not actually see it?
I also taught on the verse-
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. John 16:2
And tried to challenge our our mindsets.
Could there ever come a time- when Christians think the killing of other Christians- for no good cause- or a fake cause- would be ‘doing God’s will’.
And yet- some Christians today hold to this view- not realizing they too have embraced a contrary mindset to the Word of God.
During the Iraq war- some Iraqi Christians who served in the army- were indeed killed- by well meaning American Christian soldiers-
This killing was based on false Intelligence that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
We later found out we were wrong.
Now- I simply want you to see how many Christians in our day- still think that those few Christian soldiers in the Iraqi army- who were killed by us- was still a good thing.
I do not fault our men for doing this- I hold the leaders of our country responsible for starting an unjust war.
Yet those who were killed- on false pretense- were killed unjustly.
And yet- many in the Western world still think it was not only good that we did that-
but it was actually pleasing to God.
I found it interesting that this Sunday I made 2 videos- and sure enough- they both fit.
