-- As to other details, I am 5'7, white obviously, and around 170 pounds, and basically athletic, etc, and I play drums, and am trying to get a world wide ministry going, because there is so much need for it in the world, and so the name of JESUS will be glorified, and his true nature as the Son of God described fully. I think maybe the reason tithes are not blessed as they should be, because the church does not use it for "meat" (the word, and prayer, and preaching etc) in his house, MALACHI 3: 10, and also because the WHOLE BOOK of Malachi is not observed. First off it begins saying the word of God is a BURDEN. Who carries the word around, like a BURDEN and as it says in the beginning of Revelation, who "bare record of the word of God?" Then God says "I have loved you." Then you ask "wherein have you loved me?" Most people are too busy playing with their toys to even think there is a controversy big enough to ask that question. Of course God loves me, look at all my toys: my big house, my good credit, my normal thinking so that no body is put off by my "weirdness," etc. But what about those for whom life is not so great? Then you might ask "wherein has God loved me?" So first of all, the promises of Malachi are to those who at least feel a need to ask that question, even if they have faith and love enough for God to know the answer. But it still has to be according to faith, or else our flesh would never be able to have an answer. -- Another major point of Malachi is the "VISITATION" of the Lord, saying, Malachi 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. --- BUT WHO really wants to see the Lord? John says only when we "SEE HIM AS HE IS" will be made like him. -- In short we got to take THE WHOLE WORD, just like we need WHOLE FOOD, and as raw as possible to preserve the nutrition, or else we end up getting diseases like (perhaps but hopefully not) diabetes or who knows what? --- Paul says "everyman has not faith," but he means the faith of God. We are all shaped in iniquity, because of the fall of satan, and what is called "the depths of satan as he speaks," and just as "faith comes by hearing God, and by hearing the word of God," the faith of satan which is deception comes by "the depths of satan as he speaks," and so in CONVERSION TO GOD, that is the main thing we must turn away from, and that by the power of God working mightily in us. Paul says "God can do all things super abundantly above all we can ask or think," BUT only according to the power that works in us, and that power is God's love. Because what we can "ask or think" is all faith related, but Paul says "FAITH WORKS BY LOVE," and without those works, faith is dead. Psalm 51 says "that the bones you have broken may rejoice." those "bones" are the code word the Bible uses for "faith," and sometimes our faith can be broken, because it was not "perfect faith," though from God, because Paul also says that is what the ministry is for: for the perfecting of the saints, and he says, "I have come to perfect what is lacking in your faith." -- God made marriage as a parable or "play" to be a picture of Christ and the church, READ EPHESIANS 5, (Ephesians 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.)
and made woman out of a rib to symbolize she must be a "protector of the heart." And the chapter in Proverbs which describes the virtuous wife, in the end of the book, says "the heart of her husband does safely trust in her." Jesus died on a cross to symbolize that he is the "carpenter" who made his bride by generating her in his faith, and the word "wife" in Greek means "Something generated." And since he is the green tree, but while we were yet sinners he died for us, it means we are the "dry tree" that he had to die upon in order to transfer his life unto it. Luke 23:31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry? Jesus says in Isaiah 26:19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. --- When he was risen from the dead, he was the BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR, and so he was above humanity, but shed his humanity upon us, to mold in us "hearts of flesh," and replace all of our sins with his own wounds, as Paul says Galatians 6:17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: (FOR MY PAST SINS; -need to repent and quit them first or they are not "in remission") for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. --- These marks of Jesus are now glorified in his now glorified body, and were not healed upon his resurrection, as if he had to resume being human, because he had his wounds still intact and even "open" also, which would seem to say he no longer needed human blood, or a heart that pumped. He told Thomas, "THRUST" your hand into my side, and I think he meant it literally, and so was not "fragile" or anything like that. When he first revealed himself, he did so in very mysterious ways, and would as it seems, walk through walls, and speak all day to people who SHOULD know him, or at least ask why is this man who should be dead by such horrific injuries talking to us? But they did not know it was Jesus until he broke bread, and then vanished into thin air. ---Luke 24:30 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. 24:31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
---His blood he shed was God HIMSELF, and that is his only life. And which is why he cried "my God why have you forsaken me?" That is the blood that saves us from our sins, and the wounds upon his humanity is what saves us from our poverty in all areas, even to lack "natural affection." Paul also warns that in the last days people will lack natural affection, which would make us have a kind and generous heart, and friendly disposition. Upon his death he adopted us together, to thereafter be "of one blood all nations," with him as our "everlasting Father." John 19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
19:27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. my web site is "solar logic" . org.... in case you want further info
