He came to make me what He teaches I should be....
When we read the Bible it should soon become very obvious that the superior standards that God sets before us to achieve and live by are impossible for us as human beings. There was a preacher who, to me, was much the same in many ways as the Apostle Paul. This pastor once said that there were 613 laws in the Bible. This man was once a successful lawyer who came from an Orthodox Jewish family. This man knew law and knew the Bible like few I've met before. But this man was special in the sense that he forsook all this head knowledge when he met Jesus Christ in a personal way and The Lord became His Lord and personal savior. Once this man found Jesus he became a fire brand, a passionate preacher with fire in his belly. His theme was we are saved and move by Grace and not by Works. He could quote Galatians (the grace book) by heart.
The biggest thing I took away from this wonderful man's teaching was that the law should primarily to make us "run to Christ". It is in and through Jesus Christ that we can reach and be what God's standards expect us to be. Otherwise, we'll be driven insane = someone once said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results." Religion and religious people are insane. They through rituals and vanity attempt to become what Christ taught us. We can't do it. But Jesus can. Oswald Chambers said in "My Utmost For His Highest", "Beware of thinking of our Lord as only a teacher. If Jesus Christ is only a teacher, then all He can do is frustrate me by setting a standard before me I cannot attain. What is the point of presenting me with such a lofty ideal if I cannot possibly come close to reaching it? I would be happier if I never knew it. ........But when I am born again by the Spirit of God, I know that Jesus Christ did not come only to teach - He came to make me what he teaches I should be. The redemption means that Jesus Christ can place within anyone the same nature that ruled His own life, and all the standards of God gives us are based on that nature. .. The teachings of the Sermon on the Mount produces a sense of despair in the natural man - exactly what Jesus means for it to do. ... Only when we are willing to come to Him as paupers and receive from Him. "Blessed are the poor in spirit. .. When we finally admit, "Lord, I cannot even begin to do it" Then Jesus says, "Blessed are you.'.. Matthew 5:11. "Amen.

These things speak,and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. Titus 2: 15 . Note: I love Israel and the Jews. I am a born again Christian who truly believes the Jews are God's chosen people and abhor replacement theology. For the past year I've been closely following Amir TSARFATI on his BEHOLD ISRAEL YouTube channel. I don't use Facebook, was basically thrown off about 8 years ago for posting content that spread hate (simply posted photos of Islamic thugs murdering innocent civilians) . I also don't use Twitter. Left after 10 years, nearly 10,000 followers, when new rules blocked my 1st amendment rights of free speech. I've been extremely impressed with Amir TSARFATI. I've been thrilled by his ministry. He shares my conservative views, especially achieving peace through strength and not through appeasement. He is very intelligent, articulate, handsome, courageous, charismatic, conservative, outspoken, fairly sound
Israeli News Live REBUKE Steven Ben Nun and his wife Jana In accordance with 2 Timothy 2:4, 4:2-4, Titus 1:11-16, 2:15; Ephesians 5:11; 2 Timothy 4:15, and Galatians 1:8,9 I rebuke Steven Ben-Nun and his wife Jana for misuse of scripture to misrepresent and twist the truth. For the past few years Steven has come out as an anti Zionist and yet has blatantly sided with the Russians and Syrians, making the USA and Israel out as the bad guys. The truth be told, both sides and all sides are under the global luciferion elite. By the fact that Steven does not point this out makes him a Jew selling out his own people by stating that the Golan needs to be given back to Syria and a Russian tool if not an actual Russian agent. We are pleased that Steve Ben-Nun and his wife Jana have woke up and walked away from Zionism. Please read link distinguishing Zionism from true biblical love of Israel and the Israeli people which we as Christians believe. LINK https://thirdheaventraveler.blogspot

Dr. Gene Kim Teaching video on 501c3 conspiracy I earnestly pray you receive this opportunity to correct your errant ways. You are a gifted and brilliant young man. Most of your teaching is rock solid. But these glaring issues addressed below must be addressed. BBC International Dear Dr. Eugene Kim, Thank you Sir for responding to my comment (reference a) It’s obvious by your response you haven’t read the blog I sent you about why Brick and Mortar Buildings called churches are not biblical. Most of what you sent me in your response by way of your video teaching is addressed in the blog. As far as using Romans 13:1-7 to defend 501C3 and your building - I address below. After careful consideration - I have to write this as a testimony as a witness submitted as Ambassador for The
