October 31st!

Today is a day many celebrate Halloween, a celebration fraught with unhealthy and unholy activities. Here is an interesting link if you are interested in the origins of Halloween: 

https://www.history.com/topics/halloween/history-of-halloween


Are you aware that on this day in history Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the Wittenberg Castle Church door igniting the Protestant Reformation [1517] which among other things reconstituted the Biblical truth of the priesthood of all believers, and nearly 400 years later [1904] Evan Roberts ignited the Welsh Revival which in turned spawned other mighty moves of God?


As Christians, we should celebrate these and other kingdom activities instead of Halloween. What if our children were taught Christian history, revival history, the testimony of God’s activities in the earth instead of partnering with a celebration that glorifies pagan practices.


Psalms 66 – “1 Shout joyfully to God, all the earth; 2 Sing the glory of His name; Make His praise glorious. 3 Say to God, ‘How awesome are Your works! Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will give feigned obedience to You. 4 All the earth will worship You, and will sing praises to You; They will sing praises to Your name.’ Selah.5 Come and see the works of God, Who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men. 6 He turned the sea into dry land; They passed through the river on foot; There let us rejoice in Him!7 He rules by His might forever; His eyes keep watch on the nations; Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.”


In this text we are invited, encouraged to publicly, enthusiastically and demonstratively glorify God, as well as to “come and see the works of God.”

These works were hundreds of years prior to this invitation. What were they, and we, supposed to see? God’s deliverance out of Egypt [land of darkness] and His deliverance into the land of Promise.

We learn:

  • God did all the work to get His people out of the land of darkness – “He turned the sea into dry land.”
  • His people had to do the work of entering into the land of darkness at great risk [the Jordan was at flood stage] – “They passed through the river on foot.”
  • It is at the place of greatest risk [our entering into our land of Promise [Divine purpose for our lives] that we are to rejoice in Him.
  • God never delivers anyone out of a place that He does not want them entering into a much better place. The question is will we do what God requires of us to do to enter that place.

So, October 31 – will it be a day to participate in the deeds of darkness or grow more in the Light?

Ephesians 5 – “6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them; 8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; 12 for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.”

If you are a Biblical Christian living Biblical Christianity and participate in Halloween activities, it should be for the sole purpose of advancing God’s Light [Jesus] into the areas of darkness you venture into. If not, you are partnering with darkness and the prince who rules that domain!

“Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” – not candy! Sweet!

Women Ministers

Women ministers continue to be impugned by certain male “leaders” in the Body of Christ.

This blog will not delve into the depths of the disinformation being perpetrated on Christ’s Body, nor will it delve into the misinformed who through their misdiagnosis of this issue continue to mistreat a huge portion of Christ’s Body.

I have some questions that I would appreciate the fair minded portion of the faithful to consider:

  • Are female believers priests in the kingdom of God [heaven]?
    • Are female believers included in the royal priesthood?
    • Are female believers included in the ‘us’ found in “He has made us kings and priests to our God and Father”?
    • Is a believing husband the only priest in the marriage if the wife is a believer too?
    • What is the function of a priest?
    • What are the privileges, rights and responsibilities of a priest?
    • If female believers are indeed priests do they have the same privileges, rights and responsibilities of a male priest?
  • If females are not included in the priesthood because they do not have certain body parts then are gentile males excluded from the priesthood because the original priesthood was made up of Jewish males?
  • What does this mean to you?
    • “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”
      • Does this mean that to all who are one in Christ there are no ethnic, socio-economic or gender limitations or exclusions?
      • How can we all be one in Christ if female believers in Christ are second class citizens of heaven?
  • What is the difference in unity and uniformity?
  • If female believers are excluded in the royal priesthood does this mean all the male believers are the head and all the female believers make up the rest of the Body?
  • If believing wives are not priests with full authority to represent Christ then why did God give Eve the same commission and authority He gave Adam?
  • Why did Eve get deceived?
    • Eve was one of Adam’s ribs when God commissioned ‘them’ to fully represent Him on the planet.
  • Why is Adam called the man of sin? – “Through one man [Adam] sin entered the world.”
    • What was Adam’s [the male] sin?
    • What if Adam never washed his wife [Eve] with the water of God’s Word to ‘them’ concerning their mutual commission to represent Him on the planet?
    • What if Eve was deceived because she did not have all the information God gave to her husband?
  • Why is it okay for women to teach male children but not male adults?
    • What does it say about male adults who are afraid of a woman teaching them?
  • Do you honestly believe the Last Adam [Jesus the Christ] is making the same mistake the first Adam made?

I would caution any person, male or female, against coming to conclusions concerning the roles women play in the economy of God that do not line up with the whole counsel of God.

For instance, when ‘you’ take one portion of Scripture given to one church in the first century and apply that one text to every church throughout all of church history you might want to consider where you are positioned.

Are you like the Sanhedrin who only temporarily took Gamaliel’s advice in Acts 5 – “38 So in the present case, I say to you, stay away from these men and let them alone, for if this plan or action is of men, it will be overthrown; 39 but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them; or else you may even be found fighting against God.”

We know from New Testament Scripture and church history the Jewish religious leaders found themselves fighting against God and it appears the modern Pharisees are making the same mistakes their forefathers made!

Help Lord!
