The Father of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15) (God's Love) (God's Grace) (God's Compassion) (God's Forgiveness)

(The prodigal son and his father meet. Click for source.)

The Father of the Prodigal Son

I am writing this article as a Protestant who cares for Catholics and anyone who believes that it is necessary for them to perform for God's love or do works in order to be forgiven and cleansed from sin. 

Some people (both Protestants and Catholics) hold onto a wrong view of God that when they sin and repent, that somehow God would expect them to perform "penances," or acts to help pay for their sin, or works to bring them back to a "right standing" with God. Some believe they should confess their sins to a spiritual leader (such as a priest). But, what does the Bible say about this?


The Bible Has the Answer

(Bible. Click for source.)
James 5:16 says: "[16] Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."

If someone has wronged you (such as spoken evil of you), he or she should confess that sin to you and ask your forgiveness. And, vice versa. This is not speaking about going to a person (or a priest) to confess one's sins to. If Jim gossiped about Bill, behind his back, he should confess his sin to Bill and ask for forgiveness. Likewise, Bill should do the same to Jim if Bill had mistreated Jim.

The Persecution of Israel and the Jews in the Middle Ages, in the 1940s, and Today




The Persecution of Israel and the Jews in the Middle Ages, 
in the 1940s, and Today


(Vandalized synagogue. Click for source.)
We are seeing today an increase of hatred against Jews and Israel. The vitriol is astounding. Pro-Nazi and pro-Hitler accounts are popping up all over social media and the number of "anti-Semitic" incidents, or instances of persecution against Jewish people, are increasing each year. 

This article is divided up into these following parts:


1. Introduction


2. Hatred of the Jews During the Middle Ages


3. Biblical Answers for an Accusation Against Jews


4. "Replacement Theology," a False Doctrine


5. God Makes a Promise to Abraham and His Sons


6. Persecution of the Jews in Nazi Germany


7. Persecution of Jews Today


8. Conclusion



1. Introduction


I am writing as a Gentile follower of Jesus Christ. Jesus taught that we ought to love our neighbor as ourselves. There is no teaching of Jesus or of the Bible that agrees with the persecution of Jews. Persecuting the Jews is actually the very opposite of what God calls us to do. God wants us to love and care for others.

(Vandalized synagogue. Click for source.)


In Mark 12:31, Jesus said: "[31] And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these." Earlier, Jesus was saying to love God the Father with all the heart, soul, mind, and strength, teaching that this was the first commandment.

South African farmland rolled past the windows of the silver Toyota Corolla Mark Mzembi had borrowed from his generous hosts, the Mahlangu’s, who owned a prosperous farm in the South African countryside. Two young Christian families were staying with the Mahlangu’s in their large, two-story home, after having escaped from violence and persecution in Johannesburg.

The Persecution of Jews Then and Now and the Rise of Hatred Against Israel

The Persecution of Jews Then and Now and the Rise of Hatred Against Israel


(Vandalized Jewish tombstones. Click for source.)
I am writing to you as a Gentile and as a believer in Jesus Christ, who is my personal Savior and Lord. This article will focus on some issues today that have had their roots in ancient beliefs, which, sadly, are popular among many people today, even though these beliefs are unbiblical and hateful toward Jewish people.
__________


In social media websites and all around the world is a phenomenon which has been accelerating over the last few years. It is the hatred for Israel and for Jewish people (who are descendants of Jacob, a grandson of Abraham).

Chapter Twenty-Eight

PART 28: “Confrontation in Medvedski”

___________________________________________________

(A Yamaha Sidewinder. Click for source.)
As Sergey drove through the Russian town of Medvedski, a Gaz Tiger police truck turned onto the street in front of him and flashed its police lights as it pulled to a stop up ahead. Sergey stopped the Yamaha Sidewinder and waited to see what would happen. As he waited, he prayed. His breath came out in puffs of vapor as he poured out his heart to God.

Then, he pressed the megaphone trigger and said, “God is calling out to you, people of Medvedski, to repent and turn to Him before it is too late. Don’t wait for tomorrow. Today is the day of salvation. Repent because Jesus Christ will have to judge you if you will not make Him your Savior and Lord. And, Jesus wants you to be saved from the fires of Hell and to have eternal joy and everlasting life with Him.” [If you are interested in being saved through Jesus Christ and having a relationship with God, click here.]

(Gaz Tiger. Click for source.)
The two front doors opened in the truck and two Russian police officers emerged, wearing ushankas and armed with the standard police gear. They approached both sides of his snowmobile with expressionless faces. As they walked toward him, one officer looked familiar to Sergey. He was one of the police officers who had seen Sergey, a day earlier, successfully command blindness, in the Name of Jesus, to strike one of the officers who was going to arrest him. [Read about that event in Chapter 16 here.]

This man stopped in his tracks as the realization donned on him, and he began backing up toward the truck. The other officer was a new guy in town. He looked at his coworker with surprise.

“What are you doing, Dmitri?” the newer officer said.

“That man commanded blindness to strike an officer yesterday,” Dmitri said. “Let’s leave this place.” He started walking more quickly back toward the police truck.

“Come back. Don’t be a coward,” the other man said to his coworker as he approached Sergey.

Then, shaking his head, he turned toward Sergey and said, “Did you make two police officers blind yesterday? And, did you use some kind of chemical spray or some kind of laser technology to blind them?”

“No,” Sergey said with a peace, calmness, and renewed boldness. “I did not touch them or use any sort of technology to blind them. God blinded them by His power because they were not going to humble themselves before God. This was so that God would be glorified. God said in His Word that we believers have power over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt us. That’s Luke 10:19.”

“You expect me to believe that? You must be an escaped psychiatric patient,” the officer said condescendingly before he drew his MP-443 Grach service pistol and trained it on Sergey’s chest.

“Raise your hands in the air so I can see that your hands are free,” the officer said firmly.

Chapter Twenty-Seven

PART 27: “Flying Menace" / "Medvedski”

___________________________________________________

“Flying Menace”

[Previously:]


“You sure have strong faith in God’s power. I wish I had that faith,” Inga said from the shadows of the bush she was hiding under.

“You can have that faith,” Karl said, “by just simply making the choice to believe God over how you feel. And, you will see God work powerfully. Faith is really just a choice. It is not a feeling.”

Karl, Inga, Toben, Elise, and Abdul were in a forest in Norway seeking to escape the communistic authorities of the new authoritarian puppet government. They had just met a young, Muslim family who had fled from authorities since the man of the household, Musa, had stolen 150,000 rubles*. [* It is roughly $5,000 U.S. dollars. In the future, 30 rubles will be roughly equal to one dollar from 2017. That is what God showed this writer.]

(Forest at night. Click for source.)
“So, you’re saying that faith has nothing to do with having a feeling that you have faith?” Inga said.

Faith is a decision to trust God over how you feel,” Karl said without any hesitation.

[Read how Karl escaped a communist prison in Part 21.]

A buzzing sound reached Karl’s ears and he looked up. Turning around, he noticed a dark object blotting out part of the early night sky. Stars were just starting to appear but the moon had not risen above the horizon yet. It was a large, armed, quad-rotor drone, and it was now approaching Karl and his friends with the certainty of having spotted its targets. It was in the air 280 yards away. [Read about this in Part 26.]

“Everyone, get down! A drone is coming!” Elise shouted from another bush a few yards away.


_______  _______  _______


[Now:]

“There is no need to fear. God protected Daniel in the lions’ den. And, God protected us earlier from a drone,” Karl said as he stooped to pick up a round rock on the ground.

“You’re right, Karl. The bullets it fired at us fell to the ground. I am going to act in faith regardless of how I feel,” Elise said before she started crawling out of the bushes. She stood to her feet.

With leaves in her hair, she stood straight and began praying.

The drone was now 100 yards away and slowly closing.

A Message for the Church in America - ( A word from God given on 11-6-17) (Prophecy / Seeking God)

Date: November 6, 2017

Dear brothers and sisters, we are living in the last days. God is moving mightily in the nations and in America, calling out to people to repent and seek Him before it is too late. Judgment is already beginning to strike this country. We have seen shootings, riots, devastating natural disasters more destructive than ever, and spiritual decline in a nation that once recognized God and Christianity as highly important. 

I was given a message from God to share with His people, the Church. I encourage you to seek God about it and see what He will show you. I believe that this message applies to me as much as it applies to any Christian. May God lead you into the truth in your daily walk with Him. 

If you are coming here as someone who wants to know God and who realizes you haven't yet made Jesus your all-in-all, please click on this link to read more.

Abba God said:

"My children, I love you very much. I want you all to know that very soon your country will be destroyed. I know this may be shocking to you, but I want you to know that if you seek Me and desire Me, I will lead you to places of safety where I will take care of you and provide for you.

Chapter Twenty-Six

PART 26: “Drone Attack / Night in the Forest”

___________________________________________________

“Drone Attack”


In a Norwegian forest, a quad-rotor drone, remotely controlled by a supercomputer in a Norwegian military base, was hovering in the air just 14 yards away from a group of five Christians. This unmanned vehicle was roughly the size of a medium-sized dining room table. An automatic, large-caliber, rotating gun, called a rotary autocannon, was mounted under its belly.

Having just located and identified the Christians, using advanced heat sensors and cameras, the vehicle had been authorized by its human commanders to kill. Within seconds of locating the group of five, the drone’s rotary autocannon whirred into action, spraying a withering stream of bullets as the drone began panning its autocannon toward them.

___  ___  ___  ___


“BURRR…!” The roar of the drone’s autocannon filled the forest air as a wall of bullets erupted from the gun muzzle and slashed through branches and twigs just inches from Karl’s head. A split second later, bullets flew in his direction. There was no natural way they would not kill him. And, there was no time for a prayer.

PART 25: “Leaving for the Woods / Autocannon”

___________________________________________________


"Leaving for the Woods"

(A road through a forest. Click for source.)
A Mercedes-Benz Viano taxi van took its passengers through scenic Norwegian woodland. The forest was sparser and often occupied by rural homes closer to the town of Hamar, but as the miles rolled by, the woods became more dense and harder to see much beyond thirty feet from the road, and the houses appeared much rarer. The sky was blue and full of fluffy clouds, and the sun was up near its zenith.


Karl, Abdul, Elise, Toben, and Inga talked quietly with one another as they rode down the miles of a narrow, country road, which had branched off from the main road miles back.

“Karl,” Abdul, a 25-year-old Syrian man, said as he looked at the scenery moving past them.

“Yes, Abdul?” Karl Holst said, turning toward his friend, who was sitting on the same bench seat.

“Are we going to survive out here in these woods with just a couple days’ worth of food in our rucksacks?” Abdul asked.

PART 24: “Hotel Escape”
(Or, "The Escape from Norway")
___________________________________________________


Karl awoke in the darkness. He sat up in his hotel bed and gazed at the digital clock on a lamp table beside the bed. It displayed the time in green numbers: 12:30 AM. Still wearing his daytime clothes, he got out of bed and walked toward the window of the hotel room he shared with Toben. The Nigerian man was asleep on the other hotel bed with the blankets drawn up under his chin.
