So Why Do We Make Love To The Nursing Home Man?


Rom 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man (palaios) is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Palaios “an old man according to age,” is defined as a toothless, 150 year old, cane walking, IV sucking, dying and decrepit nursing home man.

He is also the cruelest of beings. He is a slave trader, and a fierce slave master.

His slaves are all the men and women of this world, no matter what religion, color or age.

This old man is the sinful nature, or as Paul calls it, the body of sin which every person is born with.

Adam and Eve did not have this sinful nature until they sinned. The seeds of disobedience permeated them and quickly sprouted this body of sin, the old man, which is passed down to every person.

The old man is a sin producing engine.

He keeps humans captured and blinded by releasing continual sin into them.

People cannot do anything else, but sin!

When they try to stop, the engine runs all the harder.

The old man knows that the only one who can kill him is Christ and His cross. 

Thus he deceives people into hating Christ.

He encourages them to live independently from God, making them believe that independence from God is a virtue, when utter dependency is the only way.

His only purpose was to be killed by the cross.

Yet people would rather reject Christ and continue to keep this dude alive.

They will perfume, cosmeticize, idolize and pamper him.

Humanity rejects the gloriously beautiful Christ Jesus, to lie in bed and make love to this dilapidated man in his nursing home!

Ah, the price of loving sin is trillions of dollars!

Most of the American debt is created by the administration of sin.

The only way to cut the debt is to acknowledge the only one who can destroy sin and by that diminish the expenses of administering it.

The only way out of the financial mess is repentance back to Jesus Christ.

Yet the IV of dollar bills is fed into the veins of this man as he mocks humanity through his toothless mouth.

“Oh my little darlings,” the man taunts, “thank ya for keepin me alive!”

“I am so glad you hate Jesus and love me”, he bellows in laughter.

“You’re a just a bunch of fools!” he shakes his head in gleeful disbelief.

America does everything that does not work and refuses to do the one thing which does. Such is politics and politicians.  Many will get a rude surprise, though!

Arrogance and pride is not only the downfall of man, but the greatest agent to create spiritual blindness.

But for those who want to get rid of this decrepit and evil man, Christ is always available.

But for many others, the love of this decrepit and evil dude will take them to the wrong side of the grave, and when they end up in not so nice a place, their eyes will finally be opened to this old nursing home man.

Venezuelans Who Do Not Fear Martyrdom!


These pictures have moved me, ever so much

This  occurs in Venezuela as we speak.

Leopoldo Lopez is the opposition leader against the tyrannical communist government of the now deceased Hugo Chaves and his protegee and current president, Nicolas Maduro.

I fled from a communist country and now how demonic it is!

Students in Venezuela have been marching against Maduro.

Three were killed by this tyrant.

Maduro threatened Leopoldo Lopez with arrest if he walked in today’s march

Well, indeed this courageous man not only showed his face and marched, but surrendered himself into the hands of Maduro, saying that he has done nothing wrong and thus his conscience is clear.

I know that he is right.

What fate will await Lopez in the hands of these savage leaders?

Only God knows.

If the seed of martyrdom will spark the revolt that Venezuela needs, I believe that Lopez is ready to pay it.

Martyrdom is a very tough thing.

Let our prayers frevently go out to this valiant man, his wife, and the many other Venezuelans who are not afraid to become modern day martyrs for the cause of freedom.

May God be with them in this hour of trial and subsequent liberty!

UPDATE ON THURSDAY. My understanding was that close to midnight last night, Leopoldo Lopez was tried in a prison which is illegal. Two charges were dropped but he still faces ten years of prison. This family has sacrificed itself to spark the flames of a revolution against the tyrannical government of Chavez and Maduro.

Lopez walks with Maria Corina Machado on his way to surrendering to Maduro. Machado is a courageous woman who vocally opposed Chavez to his face. She ran for president against Chavez and lost in an obviously fixed election.

Are You Alive or Dead to Sin ?


  • Can a corpse be enticed to sin?
  • No, because He is dead!
  • Can a corpse be enticed to do drugs, or pornography, or sleep around with someone else’s wife?
  • No, because he is dead!
  • So, a corpse is dead to sin!
  • Look at what Paul says about the Christian!

 Romans 6: 2  God forbid! How shall we, who are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

  • A corpse is dead to sin, or dead to being enticed by it!
  • Though sin is very much alive in this world, a corpse does not respond to it. It’s unable to!
  • Therefore it is dead to sin, though sin continues to be alive to it.

Differentiating this is really important!

Why does Paul tell us this?

  • The Christian died with Christ on the cross.
  • When Christ became a corpse she became a corpse.

6  knowing this: that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

  • Now mind you, we are alive, because we have been resurrected with Christ.
  • But as to our pre Christ person, we are a corpse!

6  knowing this: that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

  • The body of sin is the sinful nature which we were born with.
  •  It’s a sin producing engine that keeps people sinning because it never stops running.
  • People cannot do anything else but sin, because of this engine inside of them.
  • That sin producing engine stopped running when you and I became a corpse in Christ.
  • We still sin because the deeply ingrained habits of sin.

The Holy Spirit takes care of that!

  • But that sin producing engine is gone, because a corpse cannot keep it.

7  For he that is dead is freed from sin.

  •  So Paul tells us that he is that is dead is freed from sin, because a corpse is freed from sin.
  • The corpse is the freest of all people!

Are you free?

Romans 12:2  And do not fashion yourselves after this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and well pleasing and perfect will of God.

  • Transformed, is the word metamorphosis.

It’s just like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly.

  • We need to be metamorphosed by the renewing of our minds into the new creature who knows that is dead to sin and no longer needs to respond to or be enticed by it.

This is why I am a stickler for the renewing of the mind.

This is why the hyper grace only message will leave you sinning.

  • Finally, a corpse cannot have sickness.

Sickness is alive around him, but he is dead to it and cannot keep it or respond to it!

Have you ever seen a sick corpse?

 Romans 8;12  Therefore, brothers, we are debtors–not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.

Therefore we are not debtors to live by what the flesh tells us.

For sure, a corpse is not in debt to sin or sickness.

  • Are you dead to responding to or being enticed by sin or sickness? Or do you live as if you are still alive to it?

Think about this today!

Why Did God Give Us The Star of Bethlehem?


Our journey of faith through the book that my wife Mary wrote is on Amazon!

“As we drove west to Santo Domingo Pueblo, New Mexico, Mama and Daddy observed that the comet Hale‐Bopp was always in front of us. It comforted them, as it reminded them of the Star of Bethlehem.”

If A Christian Were a Pickle Why Would Life Be Splendid?


I am gathering notes for my upcoming E Book, The ABC of Living in the Spirit.

I wrote this many years back. I find it so good; I needed to share it with you.

It just shows that if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus you already have everything you need.

The problem is one of entering and living in the new identity, existence or being which are already ours.

The one who fights us from entering in is our double mindedness.

Or as motivational speaker, Loly Daskal says, “Our own contradictions.”

Blessings

Jose

 Gal 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ( submerged into the domain, sphere, or world of Christ’s influence and sovereignty ) have put on Christ (now wear Christ, whom as clothes which totally cover us, influences and affects back through us to conform us into His image.)

I once read an excellent example of Biblical baptism.  In the days of Christ there was a recipe to create a “pickled” vegetable.  It was said that a vegetable was BAPTISED into THE LOCATION or SPHERE of a vinegar solution.  After a while, the vinegar WORKED INSTRUMENTALLY BACK through the vegetable and “pickled” it.

Tofu, likewise, acquires the taste and texture of any food that it is baptized into.

We can say that with whatever food the tofu is BAPTISED INTO, it is INSTRUMENTALLY influenced back by that food to make the tofu like it.

At a meeting several weeks ago, I saw several visions of the earth, as a globe. The Lord told me, that this was the world of the Holy Spirit, and that we need to live in it.

During the worship time I dedicated myself to going deeper into the world of the Spirit.   I suddenly saw within this world the availability of everything, as all solutions to all human needs were place and positioned in different places along the sides of this world.

By the availability of everything, I mean that all things are possible, because all things that pertain to humanity were positioned in God’s reconciled, whole, and restored state.

I saw that every disease could be healed, and every problem had an answer, because there was no disease, but only the completed healing of it, in the world of the Spirit.
