“Liberalism”

Book of Instructions for life

Genesis 6:5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

According to the Oxford dictionary, one of the definitions of the word ‘liberal’ is; Regarding many traditional beliefs as dispensable, invalidated by modern thought, or liable to change.

In other words, ones own interpretation of a given ‘norm’ of understood reality is up to ones own desires in any given circumstance of life. I guess it could also be stated as ‘doing it my own way’ regardless of the established norm. Now, if enough people agree with that particular interpretation, it becomes the new norm of society. It does not change the result of those changes in thinking or regulations in the Creators eyes.

As I see it, if enough people want to call abortion a normal way of life, it becomes the accepted normal way of life. Thus, for example if a woman desires to have (sex) sexual intercourse outside of marriage or even outside of the confines of the marriage bed, it is OK and then if a child is the result of that union, it (the child) can be murdered to rid one of the responsibility of that former sexual pleasure, it is just OK. That is liberalism.

What happens in liberalism is that any law of right or wrong becomes the definition of the person or persons involved rather that a given law from either a government or even the Creator of all there is.

This my friends is only one example of what happened in the days of Noah. We must face the fact that the end is near.

“Power Source”

Natures feather duster

No scripture reference today, just what I heard from the Lord as I sat with Him today!

The Creator of all is my Power Source !!!
Aside from that, He gave me my name, Sherwood which by definition means, ‘A clearing in the forest’. When I was very young, 1 or 2, my dad called me his little buddy and that name stuck for 63 years but had been shortened by me when I was in High School to Budd. But in 2002 when I was 63, God, my power source told me, after He healed me from throat cancer, to start using the name He had given me when I was born, ‘Sherwood’. That tells me that He cares not just about me but about all who are conceived in the womb. He knows our end from the beginning even when we are but one cell dividing into two in the womb of our mother. He lives outside of time and sees every detail of our existence from beginning to end, no matter how long or short that might be. He is aware of every day, every hour, every minute, every second even as to what I will write next, even as I wait upon Him. How can I not be grateful for the 80 years He has given me and my two sons and two step daughters He has blessed me with.
If you have read this to the end, please give me a quicky comment so I know it was worth the effort, thanks.

By the way, the photo is a flowering something I saw on my morning walk today, the feathery part is about three feet or one meter in length, beautiful.

“Lazarus”

Lazarus-01

John 12:9-11 (TPT) When the word got out that Jesus was not far from Jerusalem, a large crowd came out to see him, and they also wanted to see Lazarus, the man Jesus had raised from the dead. This prompted the chief priests to seal their plans to do away with both Jesus and Lazarus, for his miracle testimony was incontrovertible and was persuading many of the Jews living in Jerusalem to believe in Jesus.

The real born again spirit filled believer in Yeshua has a miracle testimony just as Lazarus did, they, we, have been raised from the dead and we know it and have a real testimony which the authorities want to silence. The Jewish authorities want to shut us up just as much as they want Yeshua to go away because our testimony draws people away from their authority and they do not want to lose that. The orthodox hold a very high opinion of their Rabbis and the Rabbis love the authority they have and the status they hold over the people. Their opinion about everything the Word has to say holds more authority than the Word itself. Just listen to what the followers have to say, do they quote the Word or what some Rabbi says about that Word. It is time for them to wake up.

Let’s put it this way, once someone has a definite opinion which cannot be shaken, they have a tribal mentality which then draws them away from any other opinion however valid it might be. I think I have to say here that that is probably where I stand as well because I cannot be shaken away from my belief that Yeshua is the Jewish Messiah that they are all waiting for. They and I are waiting for Him to come but “they” refuse to believe He has already been here once in order to bring “other” sheep into the fold as well as cleans us all from our failings, our sins. We are a type of Lazarus and our voice must be silenced.
