OPEN: Hey! Good morning and welcome to STAG, Iím Jack. Weíre going to talk about two laws today. One from God and one from California. Weíre at risk, both physically and spiritually. t
Jesus said love God, love your neighbor. That takes in ALL the Law. But that statement doesnít effect the tithe. The tithe began 400 years before the Law that started on Mt. Sinai with the Ten Commandments. Soon after he arrived in the land of Canaan, Abraham tithed to Shem. The Law might have added some nuances to the tithe, but tithing was around for generations before Moses on the Mount.
Thereís a hierarchy of my belief. God, Jesus, Paul,
Paul=the direct recipient of knowledge from the risen Christ.
All the OT stuff is a type of Christ. Christ was the goal, the finish line ribbon of the Law. The Law was never meant for salvation. It was, as Paul explains, there to teach us about ourselves. No one can come to God and not look inside themselves and see the darkness thatís there. Those Ten Commandments were and still are impossible to keep completely. But thatĎs the only way they will do you any good, is if you keep them all completely. Donít even think about all the Laws that Moses added on to those first ten. By the time of Jesus, his brother James would echo others that one must keep the whole law. You canít miss on the smallest part. You have to be perfect. So, the only thing left for those OT folks was trusting God. They couldnít get in by keeping the Law, so it must have been that they trusted God and did things His way. And BTW , donít even think that they were all serving God with their hearts. The Pharisees ďkeptĒ the Law, but by Jesus own mouth, neglected faithing. God was looking for obedience and trust, not perfection. And I think you know that obedience takes a lot of trust sometimes. Well, God knows that too. Why do you think He made up all those laws? More places to show your obedience. God made up the system of giving to guide people away from their egos and onto Him.
Remember that faithing isnít going through the motions. Itís going against circumstance. Itís stepping out into the unknown. Faithing is a courageous act of the will based on God principles.
Again, all those OT people and events pointed to Christ; were types of Christ. Why? There must have been something very special about Jesus. Think a little higher up than miracles. Think even higher than his crucifixion. God asked him to go to his death and that certainly had its purposes, but thatís not why God sent Jesus to be a man. Being crucified wasnít part of Jesusí mission. Therefore it canít be the most important reason why he came to earth. We might say that he came just to demonstrate to the other humans that obedience to the Father was the way best to live. But thatís just an adjunct to the real reason for Jesus incarnation. Itís easy to find out why he came to earth. Just look at what he talked about and mainly preached.
Jesusí mission was to start the word going that God was going to set up a kingdom here on earth. He preached the kingdom. God sent Jesus to earth to preach the kingdom. That kingdom has a prototype. Itís the Millennium, the kingdom that will be ruled directly by Jesus. But lets not forget the obedience part. Jesus preached the kingdom while telling folks by word and example how to attain that kingdom, obedience. Jesus talked many times about doing only what the Father told him. He came to do the will of the Father. Itís not about me; itís about the Father. And the list goes on. Again, obedience is an act of trust. ďThereís a kingdom coming. Act in trust of what God has said and youíll get in.Ē that was the bottom line of Jesusí message. ďThereís a kingdom coming. Act in trust of what God has said and youíll get in.Ē
Look up a bunch of Jesus parables and youíll find trusting actions being described. Giving, trusting itíll be OK. Taking some action in the face of the unknown, taking a risk. Taking a risk for God. Thatís faithing.
Well, letís back up a bit. All that stuff in the OT points to and is about Christ. So, weíll do well to look at the Christ-part of the Bible, the New Testament. Weíve got Jesus and weíve got those who had personal, direct contact the him. The four Gospel writers, Peter, Jude (probably) and James, although I canít really say that James was taught by Jesus. He only got on board after the resurrection and was chosen to head up the church because of mid-east tradition of ďelectingí the next of kin, or brother or son. And last, but certainly the most important is Paul. Taught by the risen Christ for three years in order that he might correctly interpret the OT to those who knew the scriptures, including himself.
Paul had the wrong idea about his Bible. Jesus had to teach Paul about all the types of Himself in the OT, make him understand the true meaning of Isaiah 53. It was Paulís job to get out the message of the kingdom and establish churches in the areas that the Lost Tribes had settled. While Paulís was founding churches, Jesusí uncle Joseph of Arimathea was up there in Glastonbury, England training missionaries. Paul finally made his way up there, before going back to Rome for his martyrdom. He even ordained Aristobulus the first Bishop of Britain. That was long before he actually traveled there.
So, Jesus said we needed to do only two things, love God, and our neighbor. He showed us that obeying was the way to live. Trusting that what God had said about reality was the way to treat each situation that came our way. Doing everything Godís way, in other words. Faithing. Jesus seemed to change the existing law any time he wanted. He must not have esteemed it the way we would guess. He told the Pharisees that man wasnít made for the Sabbath. They were complaining because some of the disciples were picking corn and eating it on the Sabbath. So much for the Sabbath. Besides, what was the Sabbath but a type of Christ? Itís ALL a type of Christ, right? Whatís the idea behind the Sabbath? Resting in God. Not resting from work. Thatís only the surface idea. Yes, of course, itís much healthier is one takes a day off every week, but thatís not why God told them the take off. Itís the same reason why He told them to take the whole year off from planting. Every seventh year, they were to let the fields go fallow. Thatís not just a day, itís a whole year. But the underlying principle is exactly the same. Trust God and what He said about the situation. God had not just commanded that they donít plant. He promised them that Heíd make up for the crop that didnít come that seventh year. He said theyíd have enough the sixth year to last for two years, not just one. They had His word to go on. Itís always about trusting God. We love God by trusting Him.
Paul says that without trusting action (faith), itís impossible to please God. That sounds like worship to me. How to we worship God? By trusting our lives with what He says. Being obedient in situations to what He has said bout it. Deciding for His way and not ours.
So, Jesus came to tell us that the kingdom was coming and faithing was the way in. but he didnít go into a lot of scriptural teaching to back up what he said. First, his miracles helped his credibility. But his resurrection was the final proof that what he said was the truth. Well, without proper teaching people go astray. The proper teaching was to come through the third source, Paul. God authorized Jesus, and Jesus authorized Paul.
One of the reasons for this discussion is to address those who will tell you that you must keep Godís commands. They will show you multiple scriptures. But their arguments seem to be devoid of what Paul might have to say on the subject. God pointed to Jesus in the OT, and Jesus gave the mantle to Paul. Jesus said, ďFaithing is what itís really all about. Now hereís Paul to explain it all to you.Ē
Itís very hard to find anyone calling himself a Christian that wonít agree that we are ďsaved by grace.Ē Some will even add the back part of the sentence, ďthrough faith.Ē Thatís a bottom line, so it doesnít tell us the mechanics of that saving process. But we can at least see that the grace doesnít come from ourselves. So the only thing left is the faith. Thatís our part. Thatís what we do. The Greek word used is a verb. We do faith. Thatís why I always say faithing.
Great. That still doesnít tell me enough to get started. Paul tells us clearly that we are saved when Christ is in us. That isnít some idea or frame of mind. We donít have to guess at what Paul means, he tells us over and over. It means, we are seen as saved, we are in a saved condition when Jesusí Spirit is inside our bodies. Itís called the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. We are in Christ, when he is in us. OK, then I still have a question. How do I get Christ in me. How do I get the Holy Spirit in my body?
Again, we donít have to guess. Paul tells us that Christ is formed in you heart by faith, faithing. Itís back to that. Itís always back to faithing. Itís always back to taking a chance on God. Doing it His way, trusting that itíll come out OK. Are we there yet? Do we now have all we need to be saved? No.
Knowing a recipe and making a cake are two very different things. Sure, itís easy. We have to do it Godís way. It says right there in the Bible that this is the way to do this. That may sound like enough, but we have to mention belief. We canít automatically assume that weíll have the solid belief in Godís reality to undertake some faith action. And, the bigger the action, the greater the risk, the more the reluctance to take that chance. It takes a lot of courage to faithe. Where can we get that courage? Certainly not from just understanding the faithing process. We need some solid evidence to back up the claims made by God. Claims like, Iíll provide. Iíll never leave you. My grace is a gift to you when you act in trust of something Iíve said.Ē You canít prove any of that stuff. You might take a chance or two, but very soon the ďlossesĒ incurred in faithing will get to your survival instinct and youíll start playing it safe.
Are we lost? Is God real or not? Of course, Heís real. Heís proved beyond a reasonable doubt that He keeps His word. The OT is running over with promises and prophecies that God said. Some of them are now 3000 plus years old. One promise was to nearly 4000 years ago. God told Abraham that his descendents would control the world trade access points, like Suez and Gibraltar and the Panama canal.
Well, seeing that Britain and the US are descendents of the House of Israel, that promise to Abraham came true. God got that one right. I donít think it was a coincidence. There are hundreds of promises and prophecies made to that House of Israel. They include the arrival of a Savior that would remove the partition between them and God, making it possible for them to get back into contact with God.
The idea of a coincidence quickly fades away when we are confronted with hundreds of fulfilled promises. Things we can easily check and confirm with just our history books. And it doesnít stop there. God surely wouldnít put all His eggs in one basket. There are several number schemes behind the original Hebrew and Greek. Additionally, there can be found numeric elements to the scripture that have nothing to do with the content. There are over 20 features of the number eleven in just the list of the books of the Bible. The letters used in the first verse of Genesis contain a message of the Messiah. The old pictographs that the modern letters came out of, tell the story of Jesus. The Bible is full of supernatural stuff that no man or even nation of men could duplicate.
With all that proof to go on, I can take a chance on God. A little chance. But thatís all it takes. Because youíll do OK with that chance and be able, with the strength added by the now present Holy Spirit, to take a little bigger chance when God lines up the next one.
The last thing that Paul tells us is how to get that faith that saves, that brings Godís grace. He says ďFor faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.Ē Thatís what I just said. You get the courage to take a chance on God by confirming His reality with whatís written in the Bible. If He can keep a bunch of 3500-year-old promises, He can surely back up the stuff that we canít prove right now.
You canít prove that Christ is formed in your heart by faith. Thatís why so many people reject God. They are told impossible stuff to believe. They havenít proved Godís reality to their own satisfaction.
Thatís a place where legalism and following the rules can take over. It gives one something tangible to hold on to. Keeping the Sabbath and the feast days is a solid thing to hold on to. Itís the Known, not the unknown. It just takes gritting your teeth, not overcoming your fear. And the problem with the folks that say we have to keep the law is that they express it in a way that means weíre not saved if we donít. They have stopped at God commands and left out Jesus and Paul. God didnít send Jesus to tell us to keep the Sabbath. Paul says clearly that we shouldnít let anyone rag us for not keeping holy days or eating certain foods. He also tells us in Hebrew 4 that every time we faithe we keep the Sabbath. He says there remains ďa keeping to the SabbathĒ for believers. Itís faithing, resting on/in God.
The purpose of the Law was never salvation. And salvation is all Iím interested in. Godís grace is salvation. We get that grace by faithing. That grace is the HS coming into our bodies. When Christís Spirit is in our bodies, we are resting in him. Faithing comes from hearing Godís word.
Listen to what Paul says in Colossians two.
Col 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
Col 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
Wow! Thatís going to be hard to back up. Show me the proof that he can do such a thing.
Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Thatís Paulís proof. I know it doesnít sound like it, but we have to look behind the words and ask how it was that Jesus spoiled those powers. Paul isnít talking about some miracles, here.
Rom 6:9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
If Jesus raised from the dead, then maybe we can take a chance that what he taught Paul is the truth. We can take Paulís word that by acting in trust of what God says is only thing necessary. Not if we go to church on a certain day or keep the Passover. So, having given us the proof, Paul tells us to resist those who would tell us that we must keep these rules. He says, in verse 16,
Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
And he again adds the reminder,
Col 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
Col 2:18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
Itís very simple. All we have to do is get God in on all the decisions we make each day. That may be extremely hard, but itís not beyond our ability. Itís faithing.
GARDASIL: God mandates that we be good stewards of the stuff He gives us. That includes the bodies of the children that God gives us. God doesnít want us to put aluminum in our or our childrenís bodies. Canít argue with that. Then why give the state the authority to give our kids shots of Gardasil without your knowledge or OK, only on the kids say so?
Rick Perry is on the way down. Why? Mainly over the fact that he lied to the people of Texas. Of the many lies he told, weíre only interested in two. One, he said that the Gardasil shot was the law. It was mandatory. It wasnít and isnít. Two, he said the shot was safe. It wasnít and isnít. But big Pharma Merck paid a lot of Gov. Perryís bills, along with thousands of others they have used to push Gardasil on the whole world.
First Ron Paul and then Michele Bachmann have confronted Perry with these lies in the Republican debates.
Those who follow the machinations of the elite will recognize that everything negative said about Gardasil is true by the blitz thatís being put on to discredit Bachmann and Paul over this issue.
First the facts. The web is loaded with accounts of harm caused by the vaccine. But letís stay with our own Governmentís assessment. The Center for Disease Control, the CDC has all the info we need on their web site.
As of June 22, 2011, approximately 35 million doses of Gardasilģ were distributed in the U.S. and VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) received a total of 18,727 reports of adverse events following Gardasilģ vaccination. Of the total number of VAERS reports following Gardasilģ, 92% were considered to be non-serious, those other than hospitalization, death, permanent disability, or life-threatening illness.Ē So, your daughter or son may get sick for a couple weeks, but thatís OK. And let me add here that the main push for this stuff is to prevent cervical cancer. Boys donít have a cervix. They get the boys in under the issue of sexually transmitted disease. But 8% of the reports were considered serious. Thatís 1500 cases, including 68 deaths.
Go to YouTube and type in ďGardasil victimsĒ. Clip after clip of damage done to kids by this stuff. And plenty of other clips by doctors talking about the MANY dangerous effects the vaccine can have. Very depressing.
Now, you want serious? They were testing Gardasil in India, considered the testing ground of choice because of their lax rules. On Bihardays.com we read, ďThe test/clinical trial was conducted on 23,500 girls in the 10-14 years age group. It is reported that seven children died after the trials.Ē What if one of those seven girls was your daughter?
The CDC report also details the link between the vaccine and blood clots, as well as fainting, nausea, and fever. Other accounts say it has been directly connected with deaths, pregnancy complications, convulsions, seizures, and a host of other serious health problems.
But Merck and their minions arenít deterred by facts. Theyíll throw a lot of ďWhite CoatsĒ at us, telling us that itís safe, In fact, one guy said ďwonderfully safe.Ē But thatís not where they stopped. CBS News reported that Dr. Arthur Caplan, director of the University of Pennsylvania Bioethics Center, offered Bachmann $10,000 if she could produce solid evidence of a case in which a ďvaccine victimĒ developed a mental disability following an HPV shot,Ē If thatís not a tip off, nothing is. Oh, I suppose that it is possible that none of these now 20,000 cases were ďmental disabilityĒ related, but the reports included 68 deaths. I guess that death isnít as bad as ďmental disability.Ē
In attacking Bachmann for citing anecdotal cases of the vaccine causing ďmental retardation,Ē the pharmaceutical establishment has launched a sophisticated hoax aimed at manipulating the public to believe that the vaccine has no side-effects whatsoever
Why go to this extremely ridiculous end to convince people that the vaccine is safe? Money. Worldwide money. But thatís not that main reason. Not even money. Population reduction trumps money. But weíll get to that in a minute. First we have to follow that money.
The Texas Governorís former chief of staff was a lobbyist for Merck at the same time Perry mandated all girls in Texas receive the shot with an executive order.
Vanderbilt Universityís Dr. William Schaffner also told ABC News, ďThe HPV vaccine and other vaccines are wonderfully safe vaccines, theyíve been tested extensively and weíre quite comfortable in saying theyíre safe.Ē You can see him tell this lie on YouTube. Schaffnerís National Foundation for Infectious Diseases has given awards to the inoculation-pushing Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as Paul A. Offit MD, a vehement vaccine promoter who holds a $1.5 million dollar research position at a Merck funded childrenís hospital and owns several patents on vaccines.
ďSince the vaccine has been introduced, more than 35 million doses have been administered, and it has an excellent safety record,Ē responded the American Academy of Pediatrics in a statement.
Now for the real reason for the shot, and most other vaccines, too. Population reduction. Itís always been the elite plan to reduce the world population to half a billion. Putting aluminum in peopleís brains will do a good job.
The details are on Naturalnews.com, with some YouTube clips from Mike Addams of Natural News. Heís called the Health Ranger. Here are a couple excerpts:
In seeking answers to why adolescent girls are suffering devastating health damage after being injected with HPV vaccines, SANEVax, Inc decided to have vials of Gardasil tested in a laboratory. There, they found over a dozen Gardasil vaccine vials to be contaminated with rDNA of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). The vials were purchased in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Poland and France, indicating Gardasil contamination is a global phenomenon, not some mistake in one or two places. This speaks of design.
This means that adolescents who are injected with these vials are being contaminated with a biohazard ó the rDNA of HPV. In conducting the tests, Dr. Sin Hang Lee found rDNA from both HPV-11 and HPV-18, which were described as ďfirmly attached to the aluminum adjuvant.Ē
That aluminum is also found in vaccines should be frightening all by itself, given that it specifically damages the nervous system. With the added discovery that the aluminum adjuvant also carries rDNA fragments of two different strains of Human Papillomavirus, this now reaches the level of a dangerous biohazardĖ something more like a biological weapon rather than anything resembling medicine.
As SANE Vax explains in its announcement, these tests were conducted after an adolescent girl experienced ďacute onset Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis within 24 hoursĒ of being injected with an HPV vaccine. (http://sanevax.org/sane-vax-inc-disÖ)
The rDNA that was found to be contaminating Gardasil is not ďnaturalĒ rDNA from the HPV virus itself. Rather, it is a genetically engineered form of HPV genetic code that is added to the vaccines during their manufacture.
As Dr. Lee said: ďNatural HPV DNA does not remain in the bloodstream for very long. However, the HPV DNA in Gardasil is not Ďnaturalí DNA. It is a recombinant HPV DNA (rDNA) ó genetically engineered It may enter a human cell, especially in an inflammatory lesion caused by the effects of the aluminum adjuvant. It may be in the cell temporarily or stay there forever, with or without causing a mutation. Now the host cell contains human DNA as well as genetically engineered viral DNA.Ē This bio-hazardous substance persists in their blood, it sets up house keeping.
On Mike Adamsí site youíll also see an astounding video of Merck scientist Dr. Hilleman openly admitting that polio vaccines were widely contaminated with SV40 viruses that they knew caused cancer. The full transcript is also up there.
Now hereís the reason Iím talking about this today. Do you want you 12-year-old daughter coming home tomorrow and telling you that she had agreed to being given the Gardasil vaccine? She says, ďWell, they showed us this awful movie about cervical cancer and how Gardasil would prevent it. They said it was the law, anyway. We didnít have to ask our parents. So a bunch of us decided to get the shot.Ē
Here are a couple excepts from an article posted on infowars.com by Claire Shefchik on September 24, 2011
The HPV vaccine has been making the news recently, mostly due to the heated debate among Republicans over Texas Gov. Rick Perryís mandating that Texas girls be shot up with Gardasil.
California minors seeking sexually transmitted disease vaccinations may be able to do so without parental consent if Gov. Jerry Brown signs a bill now on his desk.
If the bill becomes law, minors could also receive vaccines that help prevent HIV soon after the patient is exposed.
Brown has not signaled whether or not he will sign the bill. The signing deadline is Oct. 9. So we still have time to contact Brown and tell him not to sign. Currently, children as young as 12 can seek diagnosis and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, but cannot receive vaccinations without parental consent.
Here are some of the things the California Family Code says your kids can do without your consent or even knowledge.
Diagnosis or treatment of contagious, infectious, or communicable diseases.
Same goes for pregnancy, a drug or alcohol-related problem, sexual assault and rape. Parents donít have a say when their daughter is raped?
Youíll find the California bill at http://www.leginfo.ca.gov. Click the Bill Information button and fill in the Bill Field with AB499.
The Senate voted 22 yes and 17 no.
The Assembly voted 50 yes and 25 no. And our very own Wes Chesbro voted ďyes.Ē He also wants your daughter to risk getting sick.
I want to know how many of those 72 lawmakers even read the bill? Would they agree to let their daughters risk convulsions or even death?
Once Jerry Brown signs this bill, the door is open for your child to be vaccinated for anything that comes out of a needle.
WRAP: 1-Donít let your kids get the shot. Act on what God has said about taking care of the things He gives us. Faithe.
2-If you want to talk more about these subjects, STAG is a comfortable place to do that. Weíre at 88 Briceland Rd in Redway. The number there is 707 923 ALLY (2559). Or on the web at stag.ws. The email address is email@example.com
3-Iíll be back here on Nov 6. I trust that youíll be here too.
4-Thereís no way around it. God made the world to run on trusting Him.
And it works because God is real and does the things He says He will.
This is Jack, Bye.
I love mail.
