Theos News

Yeshua is the Hebrew name, and its English spelling is Joshua.

Iesous is the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew name, and its English spelling is Jesus.

The Lord Is Peace

He came to bring shalom, which means completeness to both our souls and our bodies.

The church is not a hospice, no, it is a hospital. It is a place where Doctor Jesus shows up. It is a place where sick folks are healed. Yes, people are broken in need of great help, but Jesus does something. Yes the church is a hospital.

Theos ... a serenade

Superhero, eh?

The open invitation to belong to God’s family is nearing the apex or turning point in what the Bible calls last days. Jesus declared: Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30 ESV). There are times of refreshing in green pastures and beside still waters. Then again, a time to continue the journey set before us. For Jesus is the light of the way; on the chosen path that's already cleared of dangerous debris. The goal is to find a people who'd simply enjoy the just of His majesty in an honest and loving manner. Albeit, a stumbling block for those who'd explore another path as seen in today’s worldly culture.

A great push is mounting to form a secular philosophy and nurture public opinion: whereby a new order is deemed necessary for survival. It started out as subtle suggestions and cultural undertones that eventually becomes everyday sociology. Surely, we've all seen the (dark) suggestions through political positioning, impious entertainment and attitude shaping in television commercials. The scenario is ready for a charismatic leader to dispel the unruly element as a crime fighter, solve the greenhouse effect for the environment and stabilize the economy through a peaceful one-world government. It's like a sickness spreading throughout the lands, which is caused by the same evil forces that are scheming: to setup the false redeemer known as the antichrist. These demons will have to behave themselves once the new dictator is inaugurated into office - giving the people ample reason to believe and worship their superhero through the ministry of the false prophet.

The early signs of this apostasy with the secular church began when people rejected mere (true) Christianity and have invented a socially entertaining gospel. These motivational cheerleaders stir up an emotionally driven message and thereby, produce a gospel hype based on false expectations of prosperity, open theism or unbiblical laughing. They may not have rules of conduct about drinking, social relationships and prayer is optional. It should also be noted that this is big business and the publishers and entertainment industry are promoting an unconditional and unbridled lifestyle with incentives for Social Media and discounts for the Christian bookstore. The daily news rarely reports about prayer revivals and miracles of faith with the exception of Elvis; the pastor that rocks. Surely Jehovah-Elohim of the universe is easy-going and wouldn't let a small infraction of sin upset the party atmosphere and would be seen riding a Harley Davidson with us.

And yet, the only human existence and experience of Immanuel (God With Us) in our world is when the Son (mystery of ages) came and showed us the way of salvation, which continues today through the Holy Spirit. So let's use caution and watch against people who'd tell us about some spiritual guru, sage or imam among us. There is a false spirit guide who'd portray a godlikeness of Jesus enjoying our culture events and dressed in traditional costume or raps with the best of us. The realization that God's Holiness cannot intermix with fallen humanity or be tainted by sin without destroying the purity of existence is viewed as a foreign ideology. These people unwittingly evoke demons with their cultural festivals or sacred gatherings that increasingly opens the door to occultism, sorcery and the use of black arts. Only to wonder why their family suffers with foreboding delusions, addictions, unruly children and social disease that carries forward as generational curses. Thereby, to vote and elect a political leader who would champion social issues and once elected, would place limits on so-called government spending for the disadvantaged.

Here-by, let my thoughts return to the safety and good pleasure about God's benevolence in keeping with grace. You are called in the friendship and entitlement of God: His chosen people so to speak. Therefore, it is urgent to make your decision today: as the division between light and darkness is reaching the pinnacle stage before Jacob's trouble (Jeremiah 30:5-7).

A Classic Bible Study by Reuben Archer Torrey (1856-1928).

"Ye rejoice greatly with joy unspeakable and full of glory."

Always Welcome and don’t let past or present feelings stall or prevent the entering into God’s sanctuary.

I have said for years that when the enemy comes to torment you of your past, remind him of his future. He is an unemployed cherub that was removed from his position as a worship leader in heaven, and he hangs out with other losers called fallen angels. Remind him that his obituary is already written and his final destination is the lake of fire! When your sins are brought up, speak up and confess: “I am forgiven by the blood of Christ, and the accuser has no evidence against me in Christ's name!” Do not practice sin and pray for victory in every area of your life. But if you should fall into a trap, immediately confess to God and ask Him to give you power not to succumb to the same repetitive sins.

Jesus (Yeshua Ha Mashiach) is more than a friend and once saved, begins a step-by-step process of cleansing the past away with a new freedom and liberty in the Spirit of grace and reconciliation. This new experience begins a process of removing graffiti from past hurts, doubts and lifestyles, which were written on the walls of the soul. This cleansing process is a deep "wonder working power" and is a necessary step in the Christian experience.
