Corporate office

This is again is an attempt to clarify the “identity” of the Corporate office, or as I will usually say, “The Head of the Body” is in Charge, not the Body!

I believe in Christianity that we have put the ‘cart’ before the horse in our Picture. Thus we are not going anywhere!

God is the Head of the Body. God is the Head of the Body. God is the Head of the Body.God is the Head of the Body!

Now, who is the head of the Body?

Christianity, leaders,pastors, laypeople, and all seekers have been misinformed that the ‘little church on the corner is somehow the leader of the pack of all things,Church? We have been misled by numerous ways of our believing that somehow, our understanding of God’s ways are his? I believe that it says something to this same fact,

8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.

New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update (La Habra, CA: The Lockman Foundation, 1995), Is 55:8.

I have tried to expound on this subject over many years without to much success, but it still resonates with me to push this understanding to any and all that will listen. We are missing the overall theme of God’s plan, the one that He started, the one in the beginning, ‘The Garden of Eden’. He has not gone to plan B because of what happened there, it is still the same set up and will be the same result! Mark my word!

The Corporate office is still pushing the buttons, and leading the charge to God’s “Eternal Purpose”! God’s plan is weaving it’s ways through the world,in people,circumstances,good,bad,and even the ugly.

I came across something that I had on my bookshelf that I will use as a tool for me, It was a small booklet that is titles,”Charts for a Theology of Evangelism”. Now I have looked at this book numerous times for different issues, but this time something popped out at me that I hadn’t noticed before.

I would look at 3-4 pages of the “Impact of Revival on U.S. Denominations”,this title was read, then I would look down at the charts of the beginnings of denominations and how each one was started and from which offshoot they came from. I had never really said the title of this section out loud to hear what it was saying. This is my reaction when I seen it!! Oh, my Gosh, This is the reason that there became so many denominations in the Protestant Arena!! They were having Revivals, with many people coming to this indoor and outdoor ‘meetings’ that lead to many people believing or not believing in the speaker of the beginning of the so called reformation period,that then lead to a group then slightly changing something of the speaker before had said he believed as ‘gospel’, and thus brought about a ‘new denomination’. Then as predicted, this goes on again and again for over 500 + years, even today it is still happening.

It is not so much that we are arguing over the little things ‘of the church’, or in the church, sometimes we even argue over what the church is for? The reformation period was one of needed showcasing coming from the Catholic background, because it too is liable for what it has caused to set up it’s self as ‘the one and only church’.

What has to happen with christianity, is start at the beginning to see God’s blueprint of His World,His Creation, His People and follow it. Not start something new, or personal, or inclusive, or exclusive. It is God’s Creation, He is working with His creation to put its self right, the way that it was.

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. 5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update (La Habra, CA: The Lockman Foundation, 1995), Jn 1:1–5.

It’s a New Day, It’s a New Creation!! Hallelujah!!

Hide my face

This is a phrase that maybe not really understood in the context of the scriptures.

Here is an example of God’s use of this phrase. It is in Ezekiel 39.29

Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Another one in Ezekiel 39.7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

This phrase is used in the scriptures is used over 200 times in various ways with God and His people. When used by God it is in reference to His involvement in certain people at different times. The most used one is when He is talking about His people the Israel nation. This is the reality of the Israel nation that their existence was all based on the face of God being shown on them thru out their existence. It was God being for them in all their lives. This is whole identity of Israel and God with the fulfillment of commitment to the Law of Moses.

It is when the Israel strayed away from the law that the Face of God was being hidden from them, as is the breaking of a commitment or covenant of anything.

But it is this ability of God to shine his face in front of us to see that is what we strive for! What is not realized by most is that this ‘action’ by God is for all mankind! See Ezekiel 39.7 above. This was proclaimed centuries ago by the prophets and to the people of Israel, which they did not follow thru on. Why do we not ‘hear’ this from God now? Why do we not want the world to see his face?

It is ironic that when God hides His face, that it is then that Mankind tries to prove its ability to ‘rule’ the world on its own, to utter disaster over and over again. All we have to do is just look out our window, to see this. Our reliance on either governments,leaders,church,individuals,traditions, or simple just denying the relevance of God for anything has led us into a world of chaos.

God’s Face will shine upon us, soon, when we finally look at him as our Lord and Savior and Creator of the World. and we all said “Sooner than later” would be good!!

As Romans 14.11 says For it is written,
“AS I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME,
AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL GIVE PRAISE TO GOD.”

Change

My situation is fluid with some of the things that I am involved in, things are always changing on me, but I have decided to make it even more chaotic on myself.

I have decided to go back and restart the book that I had started three years ago, and see if I can maybe finish it within a year. There is alot of groundwork to be done, but I have the premise and the outline to work off of to get it going. It is the finding the time to squeeze in the time and effort to do this seems to be the missing piece for me.

I am also going to continue blogging with a more urgent need to do this on a daily basis. I, now more than ever see the need to continue my path of ‘God’s Kingdom’ being shared as I see it as really starting to take hold in the world.(It may not look like it, but it is a grass roots effort that is building as we speak)

So bear with me as I push myself to reach the goals and to push the message out to all that will ‘listen’. Please continue to follow me and read the posts that I put out, it is coming from the word of the scriptures. We will journey thru this new ‘Revelation’ to ‘see’ God’s ‘Kingdom’ as we go.

I am planning to work on 3-4 blogs a week with also on the book work. I will give you updates on the book as I go. With some teasors that will keep you interested!

For now, I hope you have a Great day in the Lord and keep your eyes on Him. Doug

Worship

I find it ironic that that this word ‘Worship’ can be used as a noun(object) or a verb(action).(I do this for mainly me,wasn’t that good in english in school.)lol

The verb of this word assumes that you have the noun of this word.

Because you cannot have the verb without the noun first!

But I have problems with the noun first with society and christianity that troubles me. I fear that most people do not know or just not understand who or what they are worshiping!

If you ask everyone who or what people(society) worship(n) they will name of ,they will name off a hundred things, just say “everything”. But they will sometimes cringe when you try to name their personal ‘Worship'(n), it is hard for everyone to admit.

It is even more interesting when you prod them on first what or who it is, then you ask them to explore their lives and define how they live. Is it ‘all’, ‘part’ or ‘none’ of the defining things of who or what they see as ‘Worship'(n) of their belief?

After all, it is proof in the pudding in one’s own life on your life as an ‘example’ of one’s ‘Worship'(v).

One can also be fooled into believing that they are worshiping their ‘one true god’ when in fact they could be serving multiple gods. But for them to see that they are actually ‘worshiping'(n) the others will be a tough sell for them to see. Again, it is the actions of oneself to that ‘worship'(v) that prove itself to that god.

You see, if one is proclaiming to be that one ‘Worship'(n) person, it must be of ‘all or nothing’, there cannot be the multitude of ‘Worship'(n). It is especially designed in God’s Kingdom, that His proclamation is that “He is Lord of all”. This utterance of Kingship is in demanding sola rule. His rule trumps everyone and everything.

It is not realized with people that they have other things or people sharing that ‘worship'(n) with God. It is wise for one to sit back and look at the understanding of who is receiving their ‘worship'(v).

We must look at the things that we have that are blocking or are in-between what we ‘Worship'(n). We are fooled in thinking that their is nothing between us and Worship(n). But their usually is. There are alot of things that are, once we see what has our priorities are, we see we have multitude’s of things that get in our way of our ‘first’ worship'(n).

Just for fun let us look at some of the things that people mention as possible ‘gods’ of their ‘worship’. There is money, work, sex, nothing, drugs, living, life, stars, people, politics, evil, it is these that are more defined in our lives but it is also the little things that control our lives because of what we do that defines the ‘worship'(n) of our ‘worship'(v).

Take time to re-visit your worship(v) to see where your worship(n) really is. It might be very revealing!!
