FAQ for this video:


Q 1) People (like me) who prefer the AKJV, use the (difficult to understand?) language as an avenue to rewrite the Bible to mean what we want it to.
A What I'm saying is that if you want to manipulate the scripture and make it say what you want it to say, all you have to do is find a translation that is hard to understand to begin with, and then you can make it say anything you want it to.

Q 2) Drinking alcohol is a sin.
A Drinking "Strong Drink" is a sin.

Q 3) Being Fat is a sin (and can be rebuked, just like Acne).
A Being Fat is a sin if it's as a result of not obeying God, He said everything in moderation. Disobedience is a sin. Acne isn't a sin, but it is an affliction and can be caused by sin. Any symptom can be caused by sin. Sickness, disease, and other things can be caused by sin. Wrath comes bundled and packaged in sin. I wasn't saying in this video that being Fat was a sin, I was saying it was caused by sin.

Q 4) It is God's will for us all to live in Divine Health and have every spiritual gift and wealth and providence and blessings and you can achieve that by asking God to overcome the things in your life that are blocking those blessings. (I'm sorry has anyone ever read Job?)
A Everyone has a Job experience sooner or later, when you are getting things you haven't earned as far as wrath, but all sickness originated with the original sin. There would be no sickness or death if Adam wouldn't have sinned. There are consequences for our actions, and those consequences come bundled with sin. So if we see sickness in our lives, we should ask God and look for mistakes we might have made. I'd say 75% of the time in "MY" life if I'm sick there is something I've done wrong, and God is getting my attention.

Q 5) A lot of "Thou shalt not kill" references that some study would reveal as "ratsach" and "phonenĊ" which clearly mean murder...
A What is the difference between killing someone and murdering them?

Q 6) We are living in heaven now if we want to be.
A Ya, if you want to, you can live in the kingdom of Heaven now.

Church Punks - Audio Adrenaline Lyrics

Forget the politics and all the hypocrites
You know the body's sick from religion, indecision, mediocrity

You think you're too young
You say you're too dumb
Wait 'til tomorrow comes
But today is the day you've got to show the way

[chorus]
I say hey, now, now - we're callin' you out
Never back down - no fear, no doubt
Hey now, now - you can show us how
You better get up 'cause we're callin' all church punks

This is a call for a truth rebellion
To all the people who hear, this is a call
To make a stand, throw your fists up in the air
(yeah) make up your mind - now is the time

[chorus]





Petra Chameleon Lyrics

You want the best of both worlds 
You're not getting either 
You seem content to ride the fence 
When you know which side is greener 
Some run hot, some run cold 
Some run from their maker 
Some run the risk of losing out 
With lukewarm friends and fakers 

 
Chameleon 
You blend with your surroundings 
Chameleon 
No one knows where you come from 
Chameleon 
You change with every situation 
Compromising dedication 

 
You compromise each word you say so innoffensively 
You only want to hide behind your anonymity 
You struggle for acceptance 
And it takes you to extremes 
The smile you hide your face behind 
Is not all that it seems 

 
Chameleon 
You blend with your surroundings 
Chameleon 
No one knows where you come from 
Chameleon 
You change with every situation 
Compromising dedication 

 
Come out, come out 
Come out from among them 
Come out, come out 
Come out and be free 

 
There is no gray, no neutral ground 
There's only black and white 
And nothing in between the two 
To turn a wrong into right 
There is no time for your charade 
You've got to make your stand 
When salt has lost it's savor 
The world becomes so bland

 
Chameleon 
You blend with your surroundings 
Chameleon 
No one knows where you come from 
Chameleon 
You change with every situation 
Compromising dedication 
Chameleon 
You blend with your surroundings 
Chameleon 
No one knows where you come from 
Chameleon 
You change with every situation 
Compromising dedication



Socially Acceptable DC Talk Lyrics

Whatcha thinking, doing the things you do
Whose opinion are ya listening to?
Justifying, you turn it all to gray, 
Synchronizing to society's ways. 

Society has gotten to be all outta whack, 
Don't bother with excuses whether white or black.
To blame it on a color won't get a result 
Because history reveals to me how ethics were lost. 
In reality our decency has taken a plunge, 
"In God We Trust" is an American pun, 
Funny how it happened so suddenly, yo fellas, kick the melody...

Socially acceptable, it's okay, it's alright 
Socially acceptable, it's okay, in whose sight 
Socially acceptable 

Times are changing, with morals in decay, 
Human rights have made the wrongs okay. 
Something's missing, and if you're asking me, 
I think that something is the G- O- D. 
To label wrong or right by the people's sight, 
Is like going to a loser to ask advice. 
And by basing your plans on another man's way of living life 
I is creating a brand of ethics sure to be missing the punch, 
No count morals that are out to lunch.
They're sliding away 'cause everything is okay, 
It was taboo back then but today we say, "What the hey." 

Socially acceptable, it's okay, it's alright 
Socially acceptable, it's okay, in whose sight 
Socially acceptable 

We gotta back to the principles found in the Word,
A little G-O-D could be society's cure
From the state that we're in 'cause again we're slipping, 
So pray for America cause time is ticking.
 
 
People say not to over-Spiritualize things or people might think you are strange. Some say not to take Jesus Literally. They say His words are tricky. I say He's the Truth and Light.



Jesus Freak DC Talk Lyrics

Separated, I cut myself clean
From a past that comes back in my darkest of dreams
Been apprehended by a spiritual force
And a grace that replaced all the me I've divorced
I saw a man with tat on his big fat belly
It wiggled around like marmalade jelly
It took me a while to catch what it said
Cause I had to match the rhythm
Of his belly with my head
'Jesus Saves' is what it raved in a typical tattoo green
He stood on a box in the middle of the city
And claimed he had a dream
(chorus)
What will people think
When they hear that I'm a Jesus freak
What will people do when they find that it's true
I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak
There ain't no disguising the truth
Kamikaze, my death is gain
I've been marked by my Maker
A peculiar display
The high and lofty, they see me as weak
Cause I won't live and die for the power they seek
There was a man from the desert with naps in his head
The sand that he walked was also his bed
The words that he spoke made the people assume
There wasn't too much left in the upper room
With skins on his back and hair on his face
They thought he was strange by the locusts he ate
The Pharisees tripped when they heard him speak
Until the king took the head of this Jesus freak
(repeat chorus 2x)
People say I'm strange, does it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger
People say I'm strange, does it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger
(repeat chorus 2x)
What will people think
[What will people think]
What will people do
[What will people do]
I don't really care
[What else can I say]
There ain't no disguising the truth
[Jesus is the way]



Not Of This World – Petra Lyrics

We are pilgrims in a strange land 
We are so far from our homeland 
With each passing day it seems so clear 
This world will never want us here 
We're not welcome in this world of wrong 
We are foreigners who don't belong 

(Chorus)
We are strangers, we are aliens 
We are not of this world 

We are envoys, we must tarry 
With this message we must carry 
There's so much to do before we leave 
With so many more who may believe 
Our mission here can never fail 
And the gates of hell will not prevail 

Jesus told us men would hate us 
But we must be of good cheer 
He has overcome this world of darkness 
And soon we will depart from here




Light The Fire Again - Brian Doerksen - Lyrics

Don't let our love grow cold
Cause I'm calling out
Light the fire again
Don't let our vision die
I'm calling out
Light the fire again

You know my heart, my deeds
I'm calling out
Light the fire again
I need Your discipline
I'm calling out
Light the fire again

I am here to buy gold
Refined in the fire
Naked and poor
Wretched and blind I come
Clothe me in white
So I won't be ashamed
Lord, light the fire again




Missing Person Michael W smith - Lyrics

1st Verse:
Another question in me
One for the powers that be
It's got me thrown
And so I put on my poker face
And try to figure it out
This undeniable doubt
A common occurrence
Feeling so out of place
Guarded and cynical now
Can't help but wondering how
My heart evolved into
The rock beating inside of me
So I reel such a stoic ordeal
Where's that feeling that I don't feel

Chorus:
There was a boy who had the faith to move a mountain
And like a child he would believe without a reason
Without a trace he disappeared into the void and
I've been searching for that missing person

2nd verse:
Under a lavender moon
So many thoughts consume me
Who dimmed that glowing light
That once burned so bright in me
Is this a radical phase
A problematical age
That keeps me running
From all that I used to be
Is there a way to return
Is there a way to unlearn
That carnal knowledge
That's chipping away at my soul
Have I been gone too long
Will I ever find my way home

Chorus:
There was a boy who had the faith to move a mountain
And like a child he would believe without a reason
Without a trace he disappeared into the void and
I've been searching for that missing person

He used to want to try to walk the straight and narrow
He had a fire and he could feel it in the marrow
It's been a long time and I haven't seen him lately, though
I've been searching for that missing person

Bridge:
For that missing person
For that missing person

Oh oh, oh oh,

Chorus:
There was a boy who had the faith to move a mountain
And like a child he would believe without a reason
Without a trace he disappeared into the void and
I've been searching...

He used to want to try to walk the straight and narrow
He had a fire and he could feel it in the marrow
It's been a long time and I haven't seen him lately, though
I've been searching for that missing person

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Where are you?
Where are you... (fades to close)

Receiving God's Promises

    How is it that we can doubt what God has done, what He has said, His promises, and the Call on our lives, because a majority decides to reject it? How can we get deceived so easily and discouraged? Sounds like I have another episode for OSCC.

    Moses lead the Israelites threw the desert, from Egypt where they were slaves, to the Promised Land, God had promised them, after doing many signs and miracles for them, parting the read sea, providing for them, and traveling with them. So now Moses is sending 12 spies into the promised land that God promised them, to see what they are up against, so they can take the Land God promised them. 

“Numbers 13 1-3, 17-33
Exploring Canaan
 1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 “Send some men to explore the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the Israelites. From each ancestral tribe send one of its leaders.”
 3 So at the LORD’s command Moses sent them out from the Desert of Paran. All of them were leaders of the Israelites.
 17 When Moses sent them to explore Canaan, he said, “Go up through the Negev and on into the hill country. 18 See what the land is like and whether the people who live there are strong or weak, few or many. 19 What kind of land do they live in? Is it good or bad? What kind of towns do they live in? Are they unwalled or fortified? 20 How is the soil? Is it fertile or poor? Are there trees in it or not? Do your best to bring back some of the fruit of the land.” (It was the season for the first ripe grapes.)
 21 So they went up and explored the land from the Desert of Zin as far as Rehob, toward Lebo Hamath. 22 They went up through the Negev and came to Hebron, where Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, the descendants of Anak, lived. (Hebron had been built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.) 23 When they reached the Valley of Eshkol, they cut off a branch bearing a single cluster of grapes. Two of them carried it on a pole between them, along with some pomegranates and figs. 24 That place was called the Valley of Eshkol because of the cluster of grapes the Israelites cut off there. 25 At the end of forty days they returned from exploring the land.
Report on the Exploration
 26 They came back to Moses and Aaron and the whole Israelite community at Kadesh in the Desert of Paran. There they reported to them and to the whole assembly and showed them the fruit of the land. 27 They gave Moses this account: “We went into the land to which you sent us, and it does flow with milk and honey! Here is its fruit. 28 But the people who live there are powerful, and the cities are fortified and very large. We even saw descendants of Anak there. 29 The Amalekites live in the Negev; the Hittites, Jebusites and Amorites live in the hill country; and the Canaanites live near the sea and along the Jordan.”
 30 Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.”
 31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” 32 And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. 33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”

“Numbers 14
The People Rebel
 1 That night all the members of the community raised their voices and wept aloud. 2 All the Israelites grumbled against Moses and Aaron, and the whole assembly said to them, “If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this wilderness! 3 Why is the LORD bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword? Our wives and children will be taken as plunder. Wouldn’t it be better for us to go back to Egypt?” 4 And they said to each other, “We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt.”
 5 Then Moses and Aaron fell facedown in front of the whole Israelite assembly gathered there. 6 Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had explored the land, tore their clothes 7 and said to the entire Israelite assembly, “The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good. 8 If the LORD is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. 9 Only do not rebel against the LORD. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will devour them. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with us. Do not be afraid of them.”
 10 But the whole assembly talked about stoning them. Then the glory of the LORD appeared at the tent of meeting to all the Israelites. 11 The LORD said to Moses, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the signs I have performed among them? 12 I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they.”
 13 Moses said to the LORD, “Then the Egyptians will hear about it! By your power you brought these people up from among them. 14 And they will tell the inhabitants of this land about it. They have already heard that you, LORD, are with these people and that you, LORD, have been seen face to face, that your cloud stays over them, and that you go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. 15 If you put all these people to death, leaving none alive, the nations who have heard this report about you will say, 16 ‘The LORD was not able to bring these people into the land he promised them on oath, so he slaughtered them in the wilderness.’
 17 “Now may the Lord’s strength be displayed, just as you have declared: 18 ‘The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.’ 19 In accordance with your great love, forgive the sin of these people, just as you have pardoned them from the time they left Egypt until now.”
 20 The LORD replied, “I have forgiven them, as you asked. 21 Nevertheless, as surely as I live and as surely as the glory of the LORD fills the whole earth, 22 not one of those who saw my glory and the signs I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times— 23 not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath to their ancestors. No one who has treated me with contempt will ever see it. 24 But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it. 25 Since the Amalekites and the Canaanites are living in the valleys, turn back tomorrow and set out toward the desert along the route to the Red Sea.”
 26 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron: 27 “How long will this wicked community grumble against me? I have heard the complaints of these grumbling Israelites. 28 So tell them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the LORD, I will do to you the very thing I heard you say: 29 In this wilderness your bodies will fall—every one of you twenty years old or more who was counted in the census and who has grumbled against me. 30 Not one of you will enter the land I swore with uplifted hand to make your home, except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun. 31 As for your children that you said would be taken as plunder, I will bring them in to enjoy the land you have rejected. 32 But as for you, your bodies will fall in this wilderness. 33Your children will be shepherds here for forty years, suffering for your unfaithfulness, until the last of your bodies lies in the wilderness. 34 For forty years—one year for each of the forty days you explored the land—you will suffer for your sins and know what it is like to have me against you.’ 35 I, the LORD, have spoken, and I will surely do these things to this whole wicked community, which has banded together against me. They will meet their end in this wilderness; here they will die.”
 36 So the men Moses had sent to explore the land, who returned and made the whole community grumble against him by spreading a bad report about it— 37 these men who were responsible for spreading the bad report about the land were struck down and died of a plague before the LORD. 38 Of the men who went to explore the land, only Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh survived.
 39 When Moses reported this to all the Israelites, they mourned bitterly. 40 Early the next morning they set out for the highest point in the hill country, saying, “Now we are ready to go up to the land the LORD promised. Surely we have sinned!”
 41 But Moses said, “Why are you disobeying the LORD’s command? This will not succeed! 42Do not go up, because the LORD is not with you. You will be defeated by your enemies, 43 for the Amalekites and the Canaanites will face you there. Because you have turned away from the LORD, he will not be with you and you will fall by the sword.”
 44 Nevertheless, in their presumption they went up toward the highest point in the hill country, though neither Moses nor the ark of the LORD’s covenant moved from the camp. 45Then the Amalekites and the Canaanites who lived in that hill country came down and attacked them and beat them down all the way to Hormah.


So looking back on this,
1. God promises His people, that He will lead them into the promised land and give it to them.
2. He leads them out of Egypt, and preforms many signs and miracles letting the people know He is God, and that He will deliver on His promises.
3. The people get impatient several times in the desert, and feel entitled to getting more from God, and complain to Him for more.
4. Despite the complaints God still provides, and takes care of His people.
5. They reach the Promised Land, and send in 12 spies.
6. 10 of the spies don't trust God to give them the land, because of the enemy occupying the land, and the strongholds there.
7. 2 spies give a good report and trust God to lead them to victory.
8. They cry aloud: “If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this wilderness! 3 Why is the LORD bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword? Our wives and children will be taken as plunder. Wouldn’t it be better for us to go back to Egypt?” 4 And they said to each other, “We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt.” Because they did no trust God's promises.
9. The people threatened to kill the leaders God sent them.
10.  When the two spies said “The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good. 8 If the LORD is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. 9 Only do not rebel against the LORD. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will devour them. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with us. Do not be afraid of them.” The people wanted to stone them, for giving a good report and trusting God.
11. God gives Moses the option of starting over, by wiping out all the people who did not obey God but had contempt, and allowing Moses to re-populate the nation, but Moses pleads for the people's forgiveness.
12. God said: 28 So tell them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the LORD, I will do to you the very thing I heard you say: 29 In this wilderness your bodies will fall—every one of you twenty years old or more who was counted in the census and who has grumbled against me. 30 Not one of you will enter the land I swore with uplifted hand to make your home, except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun. 31 As for your children that you said would be taken as plunder, I will bring them in to enjoy the land you have rejected. 32 But as for you, your bodies will fall in this wilderness. 33Your children will be shepherds here for forty years, suffering for your unfaithfulness, until the last of your bodies lies in the wilderness. 34 For forty years—one year for each of the forty days you explored the land—you will suffer for your sins and know what it is like to have me against you.’ 35 I, the LORD, have spoken, and I will surely do these things to this whole wicked community, which has banded together against me. They will meet their end in this wilderness; here they will die.” (because the people asked to either be sent back to Egypt or die in the wilderness)
13. What is Contempt: Contempt is an intensely negative emotion regarding a person or group of people as inferior, base, or worthless—it is similar to scorn. It is also used when people are being sarcastic. Contempt is also defined as the state of being despised or dishonoured; disgrace, and an open disrespect or wilful disobedience of the authority of a court of law or legislative body. So the people thought of God as inferior or worthless; they were despising, dishonouring, and disgracing God, and displaying an open disrespect and wilful disobedience of His Authority.
14. God didn't break His promise, He still allowed the descendants of those who were disobedient to Him to enter the promised land after those who treated Him with contempt finally died.
15. After God told them He would no longer allow them to take the promised land, they still wanted to try to take it.

    So the question is how can we as Christians, and non-Christians still not believe, and trust God today. Why do we listen to God's promises, and treat Him with Contempt? What is the consequence of doing such a thing?
    Every day I see people who are not enjoying their lives. They try to find fault with everything I do, and say, or seek justification from me for their actions as a Christian. They want me to justify their disobedience to God, so that they can some how ease the guilt they feel inside. Any time someone has a Word from God that is specifically for them, they do not want to hear it. These would be modern day Pharisees.
    Often times in the Public School System children will misbehave, and the school will discipline them, and then the children run home to their parents and scream and yell until the parents call the school, and complain about their children being disciplined. When the parents reject the authority of the people at the school who are doing their jobs, it usually results in wearing the public school officials down over time, and eventually they give in, letting the children do what they want to. God doesn't work that way. When we treat God with Contempt and challenge His authority, we have discipline ahead we can not escape, without repenting, asking for forgiveness, and changing our ways.
    We have to make the Statement to God “I am wrong” or “I was wrong”, and we have to admit it to ourselves too.
    People often blame God for the bad things that happen as a result of their disobedience, however disobedience is sin, and sin is a package that has death, sickness, and punishment in it already. When you accept the package you have to accept or sign for all it's contents. You will get all the pleasures packed inside, along with all the consequences, however the pleasures you think you will get, can be disappointing.

    So what are the signs that you are treating God with contempt in your life? What are the things the Israelites did in the desert?

1. You try to figure it out yourself without seeking God, listening to Him or asking Him.
2. You reject God's plan, and or make adjustments to it.
3. You reject people in your life who speak to you on God's behalf.
4. You reject prayer.
5. You don't pray at least once a day.
6. You don't read your Bible even once a week (outside of Church).
7. Every time you hear Christian TV programs, Radio Broadcasts, someone reading the Word of God, or a concerned Christian with constructive criticism you find yourself rejecting it.
8. You assume that when someone opens their mouth, whatever they say will upset you, and you only want them to answer your questions, and never speak their mind, or have an opinion.
9. You believe that only certain parts of your life require seeking God first, and talking to Him, and that there are only certain people you should talk to about God.
10. You believe you are independent of God.

    The original sin in Genesis is attempting to become independent of God, and not rely on Him constantly, for everything. Satan's lie was that if we became like God we could be independent of God, when the truth is that to become like God we have to become dependent on the Blood of Jesus, His Spirit, and His Truth the Word of God. Without this dependence on God we are disobedient and in sin. At the tower of Babble, the people tried to build a tower without depending on God, and so He confused them with other languages.
    Trying to be independent of God, is the same as thinking you are God, or claiming to be God. I am some times accused of thinking I'm God, because of the miracles God does in my life, however that only happens because I'm dependent on God, and I know where miracles come from. The truth is that the people who make these accusations, do not depend on God, but rather depend on themselves, and their own common sense, making themselves the God of their own lives, and the lives of others around them.
    They make themselves God over the lives of others by using their own intellect, and common sense to tell others what to do, without seeking God, and asking Him first.

    So to receive God's blessings we need to ask Him to be our God, and be completely dependent on Him and stop challenging His authority, and trust Him all the time, and listen the fellow believers in our lives, who He speaks threw, and if anyone is filled with the Spirit of God, He will speak threw them to you.
    Some people refer to Pentecost, and speaking on other tongs, as speaking a different language, however even if you speak the same language, your tung may be different, because it's not the tung driven by your intellect, and common sense, but rather by God who fills your mouth with His words, by the power of the Spirit. If God's words are not in your mouth, who's words are they?
