Luke 4:17-21: Jesus opened the book and read from Isaiah(61): "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised." Simply stated, this Blog is about the Spiritual Life of Jesus Christ in us who believe on Him and applying this existence to our physical world. Our Mission.

Why does God use Paradox?
A paradox [is] a statement that seems absurd or self-contradictory but… turns out to be true.” A paradox consists of two truths that, when laid side by side, appear to contradict. However, upon further reflection, they prove to be compatible. “While real contradictions are impossible to reconcile, paradoxes are merely difficult to reconcile.”
“The Christian faith is full of paradoxes primarily because the Christian faith is rooted in divine mysteries. Paradox is the language of mystery – the best way to speak of divine mysteries.” – Richard J. Vincent
Why does God use paradox throughout the Bible? I believe the very definition of the word above clearly answers the question. Let's also take more definitions of the word going back to the very root meaning of the word here below from Oxford hard copy dictionary:
Paradox: "contrary to received opinion or expectation beyond contrary. A statement or tenet contrary to received opinion or belief. Discordant with what is held to be established truth. Self contradictory absurd, or at variance with common sense, though on investigation or when explained it may prove to be well founded - essentially true.
Scriptures that prove why God would use Paradox.
2 Timothy 2:15King James Version (KJV)
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
God wants his children to Study. It is a command and it pleases God when we dig in and search. It also requires knowledge of Rightly Dividing the Word; i.e. Dispensational truth = The Law vs Grace as Example. See study on Dispensationalism and why it's imperative to understand God's word: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI4CteEFxOk&feature=youtu.be
“Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.”
God's Judgement to hide the truth from those who refuse to see.
1 Corinthians 1:26King James Version (KJV)
26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
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
Before reading this Blog about exposing Jack Hibbs please take a few moments to read the background on Trump and the Evangelical MAGA Jesuit Zionist Coalition. Note: upfront: I am a born again Christian who abhors replacement theology and am personally happy we have Trump for our President over the socialist progressive left wing alternatives. This in mind we as Christians must be sober and vigilant to what's happening and to not be deceived. The Trump Evangelical MAGA Jesuit Zionist Coalition https://thirdheaventraveler.blogspot.com/2019/02/the-trump-maga-evangelical-christian.html Jack Hibbs is a part of the Trump Evangelical inner circle . This alone should alert any true Christian to Jack Hibbs' true nature. Here Jack Hibbs sits with Amir Tsarfati in a Trump Peace Plan propaganda video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZbCBgb-dwE&t=462s Amir Tsarfati exposed https://thirdheaventraveler.blogspot.com/2018/06/who-are-you-amir-tsarfati-my-brother-in.html E
