    Sacred Sunday~Romans 11/Jewish Roots of The Holy Tree/Gentiles Grafted In!

    in Christianity

    Romans Chapter 11~


     Paul says. God most definitely has not rejected the Jews. After all, they're his peeps. His main squeeze. His chosen crew. Paul should know. He's one of them, after all. He tells us the story of Elijah to demonstrate. When Elijah's whole community had turned against him and started worshipping other gods, God told him that it was cool. See, God still saved a few of those people for himself. A few that hadn't totally gone over to the dark side. The same is true now, Paul says. Some Jews have been chosen for salvation because God is just oh-so-nice like that. It's true. As a whole, the Jews have stumbled a bit when it comes to believing in Jesus. But Paul is careful to note that doesn't mean they've fallen flat on their faces. No sireee. Sure, they did trip over their own feet while they were supposed to be running the ball in for the touchdown. But God hasn't permanently benched them. He's just brought in the second team.  Jesus came to bring God's message to the Jews. Now, because the Jews don't all believe in him, God has decided to spread his message out to non-Jews.  After all, the Jews are like a tree with holy roots. Each individual person is a branch on that tree. But some of the branches have died and fallen off.  In their place, God grafted on some wild olive branches that didn't belong on the tree (the Gentiles) They're growing and fitting in nicely though so it's all good.The one problem is that sometimes these new branches can get a bit cocky. But Paul reminds them not to get too full of themselves. After all, they're not the ones supporting the tree. That's a job for the Jewish roots. Anyway, they only got a spot on the tree because some of the branches fell off. They should be grateful they're even on there. God didn't go easy on the original branches.  Thank you www.shmoot.com

    Sacred Sunday~I Corinthians/Snap Out of It!

    in Spirituality

    Welcome everyone! Today we are reading I Corinthians!


    Paul's letter starts with some basic introductions. Hey! Paul here. What up, Romans? As it turns out, Paul's never been to Rome, but he wants to go. Really, really badly. He's sending this letter ahead of him as a way of introducing himself… and of sharing lots (and we mean lots) of theological goodies. Paul's big concern is Jesus. He died so we could live the good life with God. All we have to do is believe in him and all our dreams will come true. It's only been twenty years since Jesus died, and not everyone is faithing it up quite yet. Come on, guys. Get with the program. Paul is especially worried about the Jewish people. See, Paul's a Jew himself, and he believes that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah and the continuation of all Jewish life and thought. But not every single Jew accepts this. Paul spends this entire letter struggling with the idea that non-believing Jews can't possibly be on God's good side. But he also can't quite shake the feeling that since they're God's chosen peeps, the Big Guy is gonna do something for them. Paul sure has his fingers crossed. There is a silver lining to all this non-believing, though. Because the Jewish people aren't all cool with Jesus, God has moved onto recruiting the Gentiles. Paul's kind of like the apostle to the Gentiles, so he's pretty psyched about this.  The Gentile-Christians in Rome can be a little, well, full of themselves sometimes. They don't like the Jewish-Christians because they think that God rejected the Jews and Jewish law. No way! Paul tells them. He wants every Christian, regardless of their background, living in peace and harmony. Come on, guys. Can't we all just get along? And, as always, he gives full credit for every good thing to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Peace. Paul, out. Thank you www.shmoop.co

    New Revelation on Gentile False Religion Received April 30, 2015, Baja, Mexico

    in Politics

    SECTION 161.


    Rebuke of Gentiles for practicing false religion before the Lord. Received April 30, 2015, Baja, Mexico.


     


    The Gentiles have the writing of the Jews, from which they plagiarized and then mixed with their foolish opinions, thereby fabricating apostate Christianity, which is an abomination in the sight of the Lord. That is why God does not speak to you, O ye Gentiles. But he sends me to speak with you in the midst of your depravity and false tradition, comprising Babylon the Great which shall fall. Yea, you compass yourselves about with sparks of your own making and walk in the light of your sparks, which is foolishness and depravity before the Lord. For holy is he, and he walketh not in crooked paths, which are thy false modes of worship and religion, saith the Lord. Therefore gird thyselves, make straight thy paths and walk before me in holiness. Learn of me and my ways through the mouth of mine anointed, for my ways are not thy ways, and my thoughts are not thy thoughts, for my ways are above thy ways as the heavens are above the earth. Therefore repent ye! Repent ye, and make my paths straight, that I may again walk and talk with thee as before the flood with the Fathers, and once again take up my abode upon the earth as anciently, that I may make my footstool once more my habitation as before the flood. Yea, but ye must separate thyselves from the black race of Cain, which is taught among men as right by that Martin Luther King and others who know not my ways and my decrees which were made before the foundation of the world concerning the races, and send them to their own place, but allow not thy children to mingle with them, for they are corrupted, saith the Lord. Depart ye! Depart ye! Go ye out from thence that ye be not partakers of her sins and partakers of her plagues, Yea, even Babylon which shall fall. Even so. Amen.

    I'm Reminded of A Scene From Schindler's List

    in Current Events

    5 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.


    26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;


    27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:


    28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.


    29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.


    30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.


    31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.


    32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?


    33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.


    34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

    Gentiles are Wild and Rebellious by Nature

    in Politics Conservative

    Jesus will not speak a word to the Gentiles, because of the rebellion of their fathers who departed from Shem who is Melchizedek, saith the Lord, and Noah his Father.


    23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
    24 ...he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
    (New Testament | Matthew 15:23–24)


    23 And they understood me not that I said they shall hear my voice; and they understood me not that the Gentiles should not at any time hear my voice—that I should not manifest myself unto them save it were by the Holy Ghost. (3 Nephi 15:23)


    34 Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind; and the willing and obedient shall eat the good of the land of Zion in these last days.
    35 And the rebellious shall be cut off out of the land of Zion, and shall be sent away, and shall not inherit the land.
    36 For, verily I say that the rebellious are not of the blood of Ephraim, wherefore they shall be plucked out.
    37 Behold, I, the Lord, have made my church in these last days like unto a judge sitting on a hill, or in a high place, to judge the nations.
    38 For it shall come to pass that the inhabitants of Zion shall judge all things pertaining to Zion.
    39 And liars and hypocrites shall be proved by them, and they who are not apostles and prophets shall be known.
    40 And even the bishop, who is a judge, and his counselors, if they are not faithful in their stewardships shall be condemned, and others shall be planted in their stead. (Doctrine and Covenants 64:34–40)


    For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree? (Romans 11:24–26)
