A female friend this week had her hair cut to within one inch length due to years of chemical damage caused by those hyped up “good look” chemical adverts . Damage that could not be cured despite much expense on rectification products. The solution, either cover up the damage with a weave or wig, or cut it off and start again. Monthly I visit the fish market to stock up. To escape the tedious avoidance of bones while eating, I buy big fishes as Salmon, Sea Bass etc. Most are now farm raised which entails their feeding with artificial food, growth stimulus etc. We are what we eat so even the seemingly “healthy” fish may eventually pollute our bodies, lead to cancer or other diseases. What have we done to God’s original food and other blessings?
I am constantly trying to make many Christians reflect on the worship practice, theology followed and sermon type adopted by them and their church. Concert hall singing, dancing, tithe and financial blessing promises seem to be part of the norm. Are these of Christ who they wish to emulate? What clear scriptures portray this behavior of Him within a synagogue (church) service ?
Not all that seem good or holy is so. Not all that glitters is gold or valuable. We may have to cut off our association with the like for God to get His true worship method in our minds and hearts (not cover up with a weave or wig). With Noah [who was perfect In his generation and found grace in God’s eyes (Gen 6:9)] he was separated from the world for over one year (Gen 7:11; 8:13-
With rebellious Israel the separation from the world was forty years in the wilderness; yet that did not get Egypt of them though they were called and taken out of it. Christians are similarly called and shown the way out yet continue to practice Egyptian pagan ways. With John the Baptist, who was filled with the Holy Ghost from his mother’s womb, it was forty days as with Jesus in the wilderness. How long do you need to be cut off from your worship customs and view of God for your detoxing? And are you willing to take such necessary action to save your soul or are you too attached to the pastor, denomination, choir, post or title given? Only wanting to hear or read what supports your position?
Some of the fish sellers of whom I spoke, would lie saying their fish is wild, came from its natural habitat. They used to fool me until I was shown the very subtle fin shape or slight colour differences as ways of detecting wild fish from farmed. In fact I am still a novice and can be fooled unless I see both side by side for the difference to be pointed out, such is the similarity which also exist between God’s true teachings and man’s adopted ones. So if in doubt I don’t buy unless there is no wild to be bought. Though I will not take the same chance with my spiritual life. Elijah preferred and was right to stay on his own in a cave rather than join the pagan system of Ahab and Jezebel (1 kings 18 and 19).
If you care to learn one of the difference between the farmed Christian religion and the real of God, read the attached book (Have I Got It Right God). Once completed, contact me for the next stage, keeping God’s other prescribed holy days.
Gen 22:17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; Gen 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
Deu 11:27 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:
God Bless his followers.
