Lazarus 4 Days Gone [Podcast]

A fascinating look at Jesus’ raising of Lazarus.

Redemptive Withdrawal (The Cross) in John 11

Jesus remains WITHDRAWN for four days and lets Satan and his power of death (Heb 2:14) do all he can do.  Jesus Christ takes the blame from Martha for what Satan has done.

His purpose in doing so is REDEMPTIVE: to glorify His Father by raising Lazarus before a great crowd of people and “loose” Lazarus from his bindings which symbolize our bondage to sin, self, fear of death, the law and Satan’s power.

God GRIEVES and SUFFERS from the US as we suffer and die at Satan’s hands.  “Jesus wept.”

God allows Satan to suffer an aikido-like SELF-DESTRUCTIVE effect by allowing Satan to kill thereby facilitating the glory of God and our freedom from bondage, like Lazarus, thru the cross!!

Beware Of The Hebrew Roots Judaizing Snakes!

BEWARE of the Judaizing snakes of the Hebrew Roots (HR) movement.

What is a Judaizer? Simply put, a Judaizer is one who seeks to bring NEW Testament, saved by grace through faith saints back under the old law.

judaizers-gal-2-16

Todd Tomasella

These Judaizers are among us, actively seeking to bring saved-by-the-blood-and-grace of Christ, NEW Testament saints back under the law. These are the same demon-possessed wolves Paul dealt with repeatedly, most poignantly in Galatia. They come to spy out the liberty of the true, blood-bought, saved by grace NEW Testament believers said by Todd Tomasella.

Christ told us that Satan has come “to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” (John 10:10) These ministers of Satan have no less the same 3-tired mission. They are “false brethren.”

judaizers-hebrew-roots

Christ Told Us

“And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily (secretly) to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: 5 to whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.” Galatians 2:4-5

Paul gave these vile Judaizers not even one hour. He cut them off swiftly in order to protect the sheep of Christ who shed His blood to purchase His people. Paul declared:

“I would they were even CUT OFF which trouble you.” Galatians 5:12

judaizers-james

Here’s the Greek rendering for the term “cut off”:

From G575 and G2875; to amputate; reflexively (by irony) to mutilate (the privy parts): – cut off. Compare G2699.

Make No Mistake: “Cut off” is violent language. “Cut off” means to amputate, to mutilate ones private parts. Some believe Paul was saying that he would wish these agents of Satan who sought to lead astray Christ’s sheep to be castrated or killed. Such a stance doesn’t bode well with the pansies, sissies we call pastors today who could care less if one of Christ’s sheep is led astray.

Judaizing heretics are to be rejected as heretics according to Matthew 7:6 and Titus 3:10-11. They are to be given no space – no platform.

judaizers-gal-2-16-hebrew-roots-1

“Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.” Matthew 7:6

“A man that is an here tick after the first and second admonition reject; 11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.” Titus 3:10-11

Todd Tomasella: This Hebrew Roots delusion is no small matter. Eternal souls are in the balance. The Holy Ghost, through Paul, reveals to us that Judaizers are operating in witchcraft, putting spells on people through demons and false teachings – “O foolish Galatians, who hath BEWITCHED you that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are ye so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?” (Galatians 3:1-3)

The diabolical goal of Judaizers is to lead saved-by-grace Christians to fall from grace which means they become apostate – lost. – “Christ has become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; YE ARE FALLEN FROM GRACE.” (Galatians 5:4)

COMMON OBJECTION:

“He has not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it!”

REPLY:

“Fulfill” in Matthew 5:17 means to expire! When He died on the cross, fulfilling the law perfectly, Jesus nailed it to the cross and took it away! Colossians 2:14-17…… “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” (Romans 10:4)

Are You Marriage Material?

Preparing for Marriage

Are you approaching daily life and marriage with a SERVANT’s heart or to get your own “needs” met?

Are you personally denying yourself daily, taking up the cross, and following Jesus?

marriage-family-serve

marriage-family-serve

REPENT FOR REAL, LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE WITHOUT RESERVE AND BEGIN TODAY SERVING HIM AND OTHERS – NOT YOURSELF! MEMORIZING PHILIPPIANS 2:3-5 WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. PRAYERFULLY READ THIS VITAL PASSAGE IN YOUR BIBLE STUDY EVERY SINGLE MORNING!

 

“For ye are dead, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:3

Todd Tomasella: GOT YOUR SEAT BELT ON? IN MARRIAGE, the wife is to be loved, provided for, protected, and to be cherished by the husband, even as Christ loves and does with His church (Ephesians 5:25-30). In a marriage between a man and woman that glorifies God, there must be a foundational biblical revelation of the purpose for which men and women were original, uniquely created.

MM-Promo02aa-355x420

Satan has come in like a massive flood upon the minds of the “weaker vessel” to convince her that she needs all kinds of things that God never ordained or said were needs. In the unchanging divine economy, the most beautiful of all His creation, the woman, is to be the “helpmeet” (companion, helper, helpmate to accomplish GOD’s will) of the man (Genesis 2:18). A godly relationship must be founded and grounded in God’s Word – both the man and woman repenting and learning and DOING what God has stated in their respective, unique roles. We must get rid of all we’ve ever learned from the wicked worldly societies we’ve learned from (Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 4:23-25., etc.). If you are praying for that godly mate and yet are not diligently studying and learning to be a humble, serving-God-and-others disciple of Jesus, God sees it and will not plague someone else’s life by putting you with them. Those who aren’t learning to serve are devils, plain and simple. You are not ready and will not be till you lay down your own life and die. It’s time to take your own sins into account and cease pointing the finger (Job 19:28). You must trash the “What’s in it for me” motto which is for Satan’s children.

Marriage – Todd Tomasella

Lay down your life today. You’ve made religious excuses long enough. You’ve listened to the devil wolves like Osteen who promised you your best days are yet to come and yet you are an apostate counterfeit heading for hell. They refuse to preach repentance, the first word/command of the original Gospel (Matthew 3:2; 4:17; Acts 3:19, etc.). They lied to you and you listened to all because you are not yet real with God (John 3:19-21; 2 Timothy 4:2-4). If you don’t truly repent for real and you marry, you will be personally responsible before the LORD for much destruction – as in how you will be the reason for much hurt and sin in that fabricated marriage. If you choose today to truly go before God and repent, you will, without exception, trash what you’ve learned from the world and begin to allow the constitution of your heart and life to be rewritten with God’s Word. There are people all around us who’ve wasted the best years of their lives living with a prideful, self-serving heart – people who’ve prayed for a godly mate while refusing to be godly themselves said by Todd Tomasella.

Beloved

Power, Love, A Sound Mind, And Divine Wisdom

Persecution, Power, Love, and a Sound Mind 2 Timothy 1:7-8

Todd Tomasella: “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;” 2 Timothy 1:7-8

Notice in the passage above how “power” and “love” and a “sound mind” are coupled with not slandering or receiving and joining in with the persecution of a brother or sister in Christ.

May God bless each of us to walk in the wisdom of the whole counsel of His Word (James 1:5; Proverbs 8; James 3:17-18, etc.).

“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. 18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” James 3:17-18

Here the great apostle of Christ is in jail where he wrote this from. And, obviously, some were using his jail sentence against him. So, Paul tells his understudy Timothy, not to be ashamed of him because he’s being persecuted.

The Bible tells us that when we walk in God’s love through intimate union with Christ, even “a multitude” of the sins of others will be covered.

“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. 8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:7-8

Case in Point

“Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.” 1 Timothy 5:19

Todd Tomasella: Note closely in the above verse, that we are not to receive any accusation against one of Christ’s elders (or any believer for that matter) without at least two actual WITNESSES. Did you catch that? Not two spreaders of slander but two people who actually WITNESSED the supposed matter/violation. Do you see the difference?

You see, we all know that one person, one devil, can accuse a brother or sister or something and then other pawns can spread the mere fabricated lie. Those are not witnesses. Those are simply people who are spreading a lie.

A man who is an elder received vicious slanderous accusations about another brother (who is a preacher). When he is “concern” contacted me about that brother, I refused his cause against that brother and told him that I have no evidence or sense that such is true about that brother and outrightly stand with that brother and against this fabricated slander. And, I stated to him that I supposed that those slanderous things came from Satan’s very children (namely jezebels). My concern then became about this accusing “elder” who would dare buy into such fabricated slander. Red flags. Paul the apostle of Christ, who was persecuted unto prison (chained down behind bars), said to Timothy:

“Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me, his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;” 2 Timothy 1:8

The next time we hear slander about a known brother or sister, like something that they did in the past (SUPPOSEDLY), let us remember the verse above and memorize it and the address of it. Let us also be filled with joy that the brother or sister being persecuted by slander must be making a great impact for Christ and against the kingdom of hell!!!!!

Now THAT’S how we need to field these things. Is this not the kingdom perspective?!

Our concern actually needs to be about ourselves if we are never slandered or maligned, lied about or persecuted in any way. According to Jesus, if we are not being assaulted, we are not “blessed” according to His divine definition and should be greatly concerned and driven to fall afresh on His mercy at the foot of the cross before it’s too late.

“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you FALSELY, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.” Matthew 5:10-12

Okay, someone may say, “WAIT, what if what people are saying about that person is TRUE?!??!!!”

Reply: DID God’s plan to crucify His only begotten Son not include forgiveness AT and AFTER He saved an individual?

If you for a moment believe a Christian can’t be forgiven of any and all sin, you have elevated sin above the blood of Christ’s cross and are in serious trouble spiritually.

If a man stands solidly on both feet in divine truth and publicly declares it, you can know of a certainty that such a man of God WILL ABSOLUTELY WITHOUT FAIL to be assaulted by “evil men” and jezebels. Remember God’s prophet Elijah and how jezebel fumed in hatred over him and swore to take his life? (1 Kings 18-19)

In fact, gentlemen, if we aren’t being lied about, assaulted, shunned, and horrifically slandered, we may wish to examine our own lives – their root in Christ and subsequent fruitfulness.

Question: Who needs to be worried?

Answer: NOT the fruitful, persecuted true disciples of Jesus but rather those who are not being fruitful and therefore attacked.

“Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! For so did their fathers to the false prophets.” Luke 6:26

“And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.” Matthew 10:22

Of course, not all sinners will hate us. Yet, the point is, if we receive no persecution, including those which Jesus specifically cites, what does that tell us of our lack of union with He who was persecuted unto crucifixion?

The Revelation 12:10 phrase “accuser of the brethren (Satan)” fits well here and that’s because these are true disciples of Jesus being falsely accused, not the wolves of Satan. Usually, that verse is taken out of context to cover for and defend absolute wolves who pose as Christ’s ministers while misleading and damning many (2 Corinthians 11:12-15). May we study God’s Word for ourselves and thereby gain a biblical clue!

Who did Jesus say is blessed? Listen to the Lamb:

“And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. 21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. 22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. 23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets. 24 But woe unto you that are rich! For ye have received your consolation. 25 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! For ye shall mourn and weep. 26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! For so did their fathers to the false prophets.” Luke 6:21-26

From our LORD’s teaching here and elsewhere, conversely those who should fear for their eternal souls: are not poor in spirit, are full and not charitable to others (givers), not hated, not separated by joined with apostates and sinners, not reproached, whose names aren’t ridiculed and mocked, laughing and having no troubles due to truly following Christ.

—– Prayer: Father, in the name of Jesus, grant my heart to be clean of all self-righteousness and an evil eye and that You would allow Your love in me to overlook the multitude of sins in others. Bless me to know that no one on this planet is less worthy of Your sheer mercy, saving than myself. Grant that my heart be broken, humble, and set upon serving You and others. You have not given Your people the spirit of fear but rather of power, love, and a sound mind. Bless me to never be ashamed of your beloved saints as they suffer slanderous persecution and imprisonment in this brief journey leading up to our eternity with You! Instead, use me to pray for aid, and comfort them in any way possible! Thank You this moment LORD, for multiplying Your wisdom to my heart and life, in Jesus’ holy name, Amen.

THE BIBLICAL PATTERN FOR DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS [PODCAST]

Todd Tomasella: Taking Today’s Local Churches to Task – Looking at how wealth was distributed among the earliest followers of Jesus.

Acts 2:44-45 KJV

Todd Tomasella

YES, ALL BELIEVERS ARE COMMANDED AND GIVEN THE PRIVILEGE AND OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE – BUT TO GIVE TO THE CAUSES OF THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST AND NOT TO CHRIST’S WOLVES!

Collections? Yes! But “FOR” WHOOOOO?

“Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. 2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.” 1 Corinthians 16:1-2

WHO were the collections “FOR”? – “concerning the collection FOR THE SAINTS.”

“And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had a need.” Acts 2:44-45

“Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 35 And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had a need.” Acts 4:34-35

“Make merchandise of you” simply means you are a dollar sign to them.

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies (false doctrine will send you to hell), even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise ($) of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation (hell) slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:1-3

 YES, ALL BELIEVERS ARE COMMANDED AND GIVEN THE PRIVILEGE AND OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE – BUT TO GIVE TO THE CAUSES OF THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST AND NOT TO CHRIST’S WOLVES!

These greed-grubbers are the tool through which Satan is robbing the body of Christ. How should the wealth, collections be distributed? (1 Corinthians 16:1-2) Here it is – “And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had a need.” Acts 4:35 …. THIS is how the true body of Christ operates. Most building based “churches” today are set up in rebellion. This isn’t happening due to the large salaries and all the money it takes to run the modern church stages shows.

FLIPPED! CROSS REVERSALS!

By Travis Bryan III

Todd Tomasella: Through the Cross and the Principle of the Cross, God REVERSES Evil, Anger, and Destruction Back on the Perpetrator’s Own Head.

As in martial arts, God takes a negative force generated by the enemy and uses this negative force to throw the enemy down and defeat him.  God never generates any negative force of His own.  His only negative force is the force of the enemy reversed through the Cross back against the enemy.  At Calvary, Jesus absorbed the blows and turned the other cheek, and loved His enemies.  There, the smiter and his anger and wrath were defeated by his own anger and wrath against Jesus.  This is the pattern for us.  Matt 5:25-26; 38-48.

Heb 2:14;

1 Cor 3:18-20;

Matt 26:52;

Rom 12:17-21;

Jer 21:4-5.

Notice all these verses in Psalms where the enemy’s thrust is reversed back on his own head.  This reversal is done through the mysterious power of the cross.  Look at all these supportive verses:

Psalms 5:10;

7:15-16;

Ps 9:15-16;

10:2;

34:21;

35:7-8;

37:14-15;

57:6;

59:12-13;

64:8;

69:21-22;

94:23;

This is why we are told by Jesus to love our enemies and resist not an evil person–so God can then reverse the enemy’s wrath back on his own head.  The enemy’s wrath against us, through the Cross principle, becomes the burning coals of vengeance reversed back on his own head.  This reversal may bring him to conviction and convert him.  Retaliating against an enemy will only perpetuate his evil and never convert him.  Rom 12:17-21.
