My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge…

Last night as I left bible study I thought ‘ok, how do I explain what I am learning’ right then the very first study I ever took ‘Lies women believe’ came to mind. We were taught that by Eve changing what God had actually said displayed her lack of knowledge, and we know from Hosea 4:6 that God says His people die from lack of knowledge. Which is exactly what happened in the garden; her misinterpretation of what God had actually said, opened up the door for darkness, for death.

Now we move on to Moses. God gave Moses 10 commandments….Moses gave us numerous amounts of laws. Many that contradict the original Law given by God. And we know that Jesus says in Matthew 5:17 that He came to fulfill the Law. But wait doesn’t the law of Moses say that a woman caught in adultery should be stoned? Yet, Jesus didn’t fulfill that law did He? So it would ‘appear’ there is a contradiction.

This is not a contradiction because Moses law is not the Law that Jesus is speaking of when He said He came to fulfill that Law. Also, it was Moses who gave the people his interpretation of what adultery is. God is Spirit, and therefore His ways are not understood by man, you and I must have the mind of Christ, given through the Holy Spirit to understand what is happening here. Adultery is spoken many times throughout scripture as spiritual adultery, cheating on God with other gods, with idols.

Within the 10 commandments God says “Thou shall NOT kill” yet the law of Moses says kill kill kill. Why is THIS not seen? Again, because you must have eyes to see. Eyes given through the Light of Christ to Shine upon the Bread of Life (the Word). John 1:17 says that the Law was given through Moses; Grace AND Truth came through Jesus Christ. How many times in Matthew 5 does Jesus point out the correct teaching of the Law given? He starts by saying “you have heard, but I tell you” Which do we go by? Hopefully we go by what Jesus says, because Jesus is the exact representation of the Father (Hebrews 1). And as it says in Hebrews 3 Moses was a faithful servant of the Fathers House, but Christ is a faithful Son over God’s house. And we are His house.

Which is greater a Son or a Servant? Exactly. I want to be a Daughter not a Servant. But I choose to be a bondservant of Jesus Christ. There is a difference, and that will have to be explained more in a different blog. There is so much I am learning, so bare with me as I try and explain some of this via my blog.

Father God, I come to you now on behalf of the one reading this post. I ask that you enlighten them Father, open their eyes so they may see the Truth that Your Son Jesus gave to us, your children. I pray that they are able to seek out YOUR truth with YOUR Spirit. Thank you Father for choosing me to be in Your family. I love you and bless you! In Jesus Name, Amen!


When our guidlines become barriers…

 He replied, “Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” John 9:25NIV84

The Pharisees hated Jesus and several times accused Him of being demon possessed. Yet, the man that was born blind and healed on the Sabbath didn’t care what anyone told him, He KNEW who he was before Jesus and he KNEW who he was after Jesus. Jesus healed this man on the Sabbath and if you know anything about the Law of the Old Testament you would know that this was against the rules.

This makes me wonder about the laws or rules that we still carry around today within the church. Ones that we may not realize we live by, most likely because they bring us comfort. We need structure, a set of guidelines to live by so we know what’s permitted and what’s not. These guidelines are typically good, until they’re not. 

This morning I had a conversation with a friend about a woman pastor. My Spirit comes alive when I read this woman’s posts and I am learning to trust my Spirit over what the world says. So when I sent my friend some information about this woman having a free seminar and she replied that she had a bad feeling about her I was set back. Mainly because my friend and I have been Spiritually linked in a way that only God can understand. As she began to explain why she had an uneasy feeling about her I realized that it sounded like one of those “guidelines” that has been ingrained in us. “They call her Pastor, and I don’t agree with that” I asked “Because she’s a woman?” her reply “YES” I respect my friend, so I wanted to see what the definition of Pastor is before I replied, and this is what I found on “a person having spiritual care of a number of persons.” this was the second answer…this one made sense to me as to why people would call this woman Pastor. But it was the first answer that I believe my friend, among many others….including myself at times gets stuck on. It says: “a minister or priest in charge of a church.”

And we know that men are the ones who are in charge of a church….right? Well…depends on how you’re viewing this. From the worlds view…then yes that would be the typical response. BUT…what if we shifted views for a minute. JESUS is in charge of the “Church”. And JESUS lives in ME and I am a woman….so if JESUS instructed me to minister to HIS CHURCH of believers would I have to say NO because the WORLD said it wasn’t ok? We as Christians know that the Holy Spirit would not ask you to do anything that contradicts the Written Word of God, well the written Word says that ALL MEN AND WOMEN will prophesy and HIS SPIRIT will be poured out on us ALL.

So…I ask you this if a woman or child came to you with a message from God would you listen or turn them away? I pray you would listen. Discernment is a gift that God will give you if you ask Him to. Remember we are ALL Gods children, and each of us are a reflection of His Glory. Just as the blind man said….”Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. ONE THING I DO KNOW. I WAS BLIND BUT NOW I SEE!”

Jesus broke all the typical rules that would display He was our King….let’s not put Him back in a box and miss the chance to see!
