A Comparative History Between Ancient Israel and America

~R.OliverLuce | 12-29-14

20140407_155233

Old Testament history Joshua 11:18-20: Removing savages from a new and promise land. Israel did to all the people throughout all of the promise land in destroying and removing them, except the Hivites who had agreed to a peace treaty which Israel kept even in the face of the people who groaned! The Hivites became servants of the Israelites. There is an old saying the foolish man will always serve the wise man no matter the color of their skin.
[Surmising from my own studies: Groups of people do tend to grow increasingly foolish (evil) in nature which explains how slavery (via skin color and other) began in the very beginning of time.]

American recorded history: So did America in capturing their new promise land, they did to the savage Indians as the Israelites did to the savages of old, who were always at war with each other! But America made a number of peace treaties, but unlike the Israelites, they broke the treaties for supposedly good reasons because of the Indian’s own strange and evil culture and from the new found riches in the lands they offered to the Indians. But it was evil in the face of God for committing to a treaty and later even for good reasons revoked those same treaties.

As in Joshua 11:23 Joshua took the whole land and parsed it out to all the tribes for an inheritance according to the Lord. Thus the land had rest from war. So too did America after it’s wars with the Indians.

As in our history books that are not re-written: America did the same after containing the so-called savage because of their current behavior that did not fair well with the American Christian culture. The various Presidents and congress parsed out the lands to various created States and the land eventually had rest from the inter-Indian and the America-Indian wars.

Just in Time in Preparation of The Bride of Christ for HIS Return

Just in time for full maturity and wisdom for the bride to be accepted by God’s Son, who is God’s living Word of Promise from HIS mouth! This bride is the Church of CHRIST in full maturity; That is to say it knows how to get back up from it’s sin with grace knowing who they (the church) are in Christ.

It’s ALL COMING TOGETHER** with the church waking up to the revelation of it’s full maturity (ready for marriage to the LAMB) in realizing & obeying it’s JEWISH COVENANT steps that displays the path to intimately knowing our Lord & our GOD. We shall be a BRIDE ready to receive HIM as the Word returning for HIS bride to be sure!!

All this hidden since the Greek influence on the Church AFTER the era of the book of ACTS and the Hebraic Pauline epistles which were written both in Hebrew and Greek had long passed!

For a thousand years the Church followed their savior and Lord with a blindness to an intimate knowledge of the COVENANT NATURE of the walk in Christ that could have been and now is!!

This Covenant nature of the whole gospel of the Word of God, hidden for a century, details the process of how we know our God with works from the ‘Spirit of Restoration’ with the express purpose of being involved intimately with God as in the beginning of all time in the garden when Adam and Eve were innocents without knowledge but with complete trust in HIM.

This understanding comes from knowing the Tanakh and the B’rit Hadashah, an Hebraic approach instead of the traditional Greek hermeneutics approach which is unable to bring out the more certain details of our salvation!
All this just in time for the maturity and the development of a bride ready for the return of the LIVING WORD of GOD in the flesh!!

** The final but developing mass sneak attack on Israel, recent demands for building the 3rd temple by the Jews, and the fulfilling of Matthew 24:14!

Covenant! God’s proof of His Love. Why do Some give up Their Heritage for Soup?

~R.OliverLuce | 11-15-14

Our Creator Father God first loved us!! Why would we give up our heritage to live in His love for a bowl of soup?  It’s our old nature (our body) that has to be controlled/balanced by our spirits. Everyday is a walk of trust as we GROW in His knowledge & wisdom, & love to over come our old nature. Everyday we must continue to trust God in this world which is ruled by an Adversary (The Devil) who hates God’s inheritors of salvation and is jealous of us in receiving God’s love.

So I contend! As it says in Deut. 4:31 God’s merciful covenant is proof He will be there for us always! His covenant is PROOF we have a Father we can always TRUST!
Even if we walk away willfully and strongly because of other gods we may be running after, we can still come back to Him through repentance! We are accepted again into His love for our deliverance (salvation) again from our sinful selves! WE may break (willfully& strongly) His covenant, His heart, but HE never will. To walk away from His love for another god does have terrible consequences.

But of course, GOD’s door will always be open when we come back to HIM and HE will again throw a HUGE FEAST for our return no matter!!! For our deliverance (salvation) from our old man is through His Covenant of love (His proof to us) which His WORD of PROMISE (Jesus) sealed the deal on that contract! We need to grow our SPIRITS in love towards our Father in Heaven that our SPIRITS will RULE over our natural appetites, bodies that we can glorify God during our time on Earth which is a certain time of decision for all eternity.

Calvinism Can Simply be Milk to Believers in Christ. Older Christians are Stunted in the Wisdom of the WORD

~R.OliverLuce | 10-27-14

Stunted in my Growth?  No! Can’t be!
I simply ignore God’s confirmation of His Word in Creation, that’s all.
Yep, you’re stunted.

By R.OliverLuce

Calvinism can and should only be associated with new Christians who need the milk of the WORD yet in order to understand the truth and how it relates to real life in Christ Jesus.

The milk of the Word means those Christians who have not grown enough to experience Christ in their lives to gain the wisdom to handle the Word of truth in tough everyday situations.

Well, some Christians have been stunted in the belief that Calvinism is the truth for all time not understanding wisdom to go on building precept upon precept in order to see more clearly in their everyday lives. It is true as it says in the Word of God, that we once were seeing through a glass darkly! But now we see much more clearly with the help of the Living Word of God!

Those Christians who are stunted are simply doomed to high ivory towers of intellectualism with wonderful sounding proverbs that may not have the experience of the Father’s Covenant of salvation in action! That action must come in real world situations where God can act and deliver and interact personally with YOU as an “inheritor of salvation” that only Calvinistic angels can only dream. God surely is not in the business of creating more angels.

God is creating more “inheritors of salvation” whosoever will choose His love over any other distraction and god (toys or agendas) of this world! If you and I were born into this world, the Earth, then we have BEEN CHOSEN from God the Father to become “inheritors of Covenant” if we choose HIS Word of Life to LIVE inside of us. Then HE is able to give us LIFE and STRENGTH to live with Him and overcome THIS WORLD ruled temporarily by Satan.

Praise His majesty the Lord!

From Fencing Out Lawlessness to a Culture Whose Sin is Ready for Judgment

~R.OliverLuce | 10-24-14

Fencing out lawlessness is good!  Fences ARE effective if we have the will. The will, the righteous will of a righteous nation! Shall we… GET A LIFE from Israel, humm? Lets see THEIR fence, shall we?

BUT wait, God has allowed a man in a White House to destroy America, as we know it, because our sins seem to be FULL for judgment! How is this? So why? Well, as Americans we don’t stand against evil any more. We just speak our minds and that’s it for those of us who do! But while others just let it go because of [false]guilt. For all practical reasons, we’ve lost our repulsiveness to ACT! We’ve LOST OUR HEADS so to speak!!

Losing our heads? Sure, we call it tolerance in the name of political correctness (PC) which comes from false guilt that most likely, I think, comes from our dead Christian churches who have lost their first love for a probable “once saved always saved” worldview for everybody or something very close to that kind of “spirit.” BUT wait, after all our president is a Black man, right? Never arrest a black man for any of his lawlessness. Why? because we are the bad people for attacking black people. Because their lawlessness is good. Why have laws when we all want our way. Why obey the speed limits on the freeways? Our ways are good, who needs God now. Get the drift? We have all place the great lawless creature in the WHITEHOUSE. He’s not the only lawless guy. Lets look at ourselves. Ooh God, WE HAVE LEFT YOU!!

To give an example of our plight lets talk about Abram: Centuries ago, God was talking with Abram regarding the promise land. HE referred to the current people of that land as people whose sins were not full or completed as yet to be judged. HE began speaking to Abram in taking the land through his own children who would do it 400 years later in fulfilling the promise!

So when any culture’s sin have become full. It’s ripe for JUDGMENT time, and God will use another country or a people group whether they be evil or good depending on God’s own plans. He knows the beginning from the end. And Islam will not escape it’s demonic evil.

It does look like America has arrived with a full cup of sin ready for judgment whether we like it or not as a culture, as a nation. And we do have a remnant who still truly behave within the Father’s Covenant of salvation!

Now, does any of this make any sense? See the Bible 🙂 I want you to study and read the bible.  It’s my desire that you will find your VISION in life!  Do it and be covered with the seriousness of Christ’s Covenant blood…

that sealed the deal on THE FATHER’S COVENANT 🙂

The Restoration of America Begins Now

~R.OliverLuce | 10-17-14

Restoration of America begins when we face the realization we have sinned in allowing ourselves to become indifferent allowing terrible anti-social behaviors and destructive worldviews into our land along with liberal-progressive elements tearing what’s good, in America, to pieces in the name of (nothing more than just simply) American-evil. These elements are forcing destructive changes in the name of evil-America as Hitler was to the world, which is totally false.

This my friends is being done to us by those who have judged themselves with their own accusations against America. If those of us who are called wise, repent and turn from OUR wicked sins then shall the Lord heal our land and America will be saved and evil will be pushed out.

America is redeeming country which is why many Americans refer to her as special. Liberalism is evil by their own actions by foolishly agitating and bringing up our past sins.  Only godly wisdom shows us the way to healing by focusing on what is good in America. Human nature without God and His Spirit of Truth is doomed to hell through what THEY/WE believe is the right to goodness through demonizing the baby as well as the dirty wash.

No other nation on earth has been as redeeming as America has, even while letting certain evil elements try to destroy her from within as we are NOW experiencing!!

Let the first liberal-progressive without evil and sin THROW THE FIRST STONE. Let them go away that we can return to our God that we may humble ourselves and repent all of us from our sinful ways. Then and only then will God heal our land. Those who speak evil as good and separate us from each other are from hell.

Reference:
Jer. 23:22 {NASB}; 2Chron. 7:14 {KJV}

Now is the day of salvation from our focus on self and lusts.
Now is the day of salvation in accepting God’s Covenant of God’s Word of promise.

Yom Kippur and Genesis 15:17

Yom Kippur: It’s central themes were and ARE atonement and repentance.
~R.OliverLuce | 10-05-14

Prior to Yom Kippur God made a deal with the first Jew, namely Abraham (whom you might even call the first Christian if you will, looking forward to the coming savior) regarding atonement & repentance.

God made a deal with Abram, who became Abraham, with HIS Covenant of salvation by God the Father and the “Spirit of Truth” (H.S.) passing through the pieces of the sacrifice on the alter, that would and does take away Abram’s sins (and ours!). If Abraham believed and accepted God’s “Word of Promise” (Jesus the Christ) regarding this covenant God made with him He would have a hope and a future. And we know that Abraham did so, and walked with God by trust.

So we can say Jesus was the pieces of flesh on that alter God used to pass through with His very own SPIRIT OF TRUTH which is the Holy Spirit (Gen.15:17). And as we all know today, Jesus came at the right time and died on a stake to seal that deal to show the world of God’s Word is trustworthy!! God’s covenant covers our sin. Nothing else will do.

Reference:
According to Jewish tradition, God inscribes each person’s fate for the coming year into a book, the Book of Life, on Rosh Hashanah, and waits until Yom Kippur to “seal” the verdict.

Eternal Perdition vs. Eternal Life in Rejecting God’s Love

~R.OliverLuce | 09-26-14

Eternal Perdition is according to the man or woman’s heart who has been chosen by God as being an inheritor to God’s Kingdom; All have been chosen, those who have been born and have entered into this world. All have been chosen by God to inherit His Kingdom through His Covenant of relationship with Himself. A Covenant with terrible consequences and wonderful benefits that lead to His eternal purpose for us whosoever will. His benefits also lead into eternal life with Him forever even after the end of this present age. This age ends with Matthew 24:14.

There are actions and behaviors in life that men and women make that sets them on the road to perdition. It can be due to their job position, a government position, a position in society, certain behaviors such as lust or perversion that will through habit takes a hold on them and their will, a movement they have initiated whom they own, or anything they might have started where their choices have bound them from listening to the Spirit of Truth towards repentance and accepting God’s Word of Love into their hearts as Lordship in their lives. [Reference: John 17:12.]

But the wonders of God’s Covenant benefits are many and will give each one of us a hope and a future in this life but more importantly in eternity with a destiny with His Word of Life who Jesus is our example.

Inheritors of Salvation & Freewill Trust in Covenant

~R.OliverLuce | 08-13-14

The inheritors of salvation are those who accept the Father’s gracious Covenant of love.  GOD’s own demonstration of HIS love that inspires us (inspiration from God) to join with Him in death to our selves (a covenant action) to control the appetites of the flesh and resist evil (devil) in our lives created to originally glorify God.

God is NOT in the business of creating anymore angels!  Instead He’s creating more inheritors of salvation & freedom with a free moral will to all those whosoever will (John 3:16).

IMPORTANT:
To understand free will and Covenant, is to understand God’s relationship to us and learning to trust (faith) Him. And it also means understanding our freedoms in that relationship, our discernment, and how wisely we reach others for the Kingdom!

Moreover! To understand our freewill is to understand God’s character in the world around us and in the Universe!  God’s character can be clearly seen in the Universe such as, an example, even the trinity is shown and revealed in the Universe!

It’s true, a wise man may know inherently how to interact and reach others effectively for Christ and live wisely with the knowledge of freewill subconsciously.  But at the same time not knowing or believing in freewill as revealed in scripture and the world around us, throughout his life.  So he will articulate a theology that’s not consistent with his life and living his life of freewill in Christ, with the notion there is no freewill in Christ! But, as always, knowing the Word of life within the whole counsel of God spells spiritual freedom and power and clear discernment in living the life as Christ would, however imperfect we are!
[Freewill implies respect for others when interacting with others and/or reaching out to them for Christ in wisdom.  If free will is all around us, so is freewill in salvation with the help of inspiration from God.]

// Example of Free will:
Note how God treated and interacted with the Egyptian Pharaoh with Moses:
~Exodus 10:1 And the LORD said to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants; that I might show these my signs before him:
{The Lord God had hardened Pharaoh’s heart, after Pharaoh already had chosen his attitude; Had chosen his way. For God had to awaken the apathy out of the Children of Israel as was [also] revealed in the desert.
As in the proverb: You might take the Jews out of Egypt but it’s very difficult to take Egypt out of the Jews!}
~Please note 1Samuel 6:6 regarding the questioning and the EXPLANATION of the word “hardening” in Exodus 10:1.

God has put us in CHARGE of our hearts and He knows when we get mixed up when feelings get in the way. HE’s Holy intelligent! He’s a wonderful God for every moment and decision in our lives!  He inspires us to GREATNESS!

Updt: The Father’s Covenant of Love & of Belonging; A Covenant in Blood is Serious Accountability

by R.OliverLuce | 03-05-14

A Covenant of love and of belonging. We no longer have to hunt for belonging through drugs, porn, gayism, nor extreme agendas: Gen.15:17,18; Gen.17:8,9; Gen.17:8-27.

God the Father’s Covenant; a Covenant of blood (Covenant of serious consequences and great blessings) [Gen.15:17,18]

“The sign of this Covenant will be circumcision of the flesh [heart] of the foreskin as the sign of the Father’s covenant between Him and Abraham (and all his descendants and all those of us through the Faith of Abraham).

God instituted the sign of Covenant, to be circumcision of the flesh [heart] of the foreskin as the sign of the Father God’s Covenant between Him and Abraham and all his descendants and all those who are sons of Abraham’s faith;
The ‘cut of covenant’ is at it’s closest  site of paternity where it’s for his descendants both by blood and all the nations  and people of Abraham’s faith! And this cut is where Abraham’s seed comes from,  it comes from where the ‘cut of Covenant’ is made as it will through Jesus the Christ who later came to seal the deal on this ‘cut of Covenant!’
[Gen.17:8,9 Establishing the Covenant]
[Gen.17:11-27 Covenant in the Word]

In regarding God’s Covenant, those of us who are true Christians; Those who are in Covenant with the ‘Father’ God would know and believe what it means, when we hear the word “circumcision!”
We are to live as true ‘remnant of the Jews’ of ancient Israel had, with our hearts circumcised from sin along with a clear conscience.

Gen 17:16  “I will bless her, and indeed I will give you a son by her. Then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her.”
Gen 17:17  Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “Will a child be born to a man one hundred years old? And will Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?”
Gen 17:18  And Abraham said to God, “Oh that Ishmael might live before You!”
Gen 17:19  But God said, “No, but Sarah your wife will bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; and I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.
Gen 17:20  “As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I will bless him, and will make him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall become the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.

Gen 17:23  Then Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all the servants who were born in his house and all who were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham’s household, and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the very same day, as God had said to him.
Gen 17:24  Now Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
Gen 17:25  And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
