Why Do People Love The Nursing Home


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, decrepit, dying, nursing home man.

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

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

This old man is a sin producing engine. He keeps humans captured and blinded by releasing continual sin into them.

He knows that the only one who can kill him is Christ and His cross. Thus he deceives people into hating Christ.

One day, it will be too late, and along with this toothless man, many will go to where there is ironically the gnashing of teeth.

He has deceived humanity so that it spends trillions of dollars to keep him alive, beautify, exalt, cosmeticized and protect him. His only purpose was to be killed by the cross. Yet people would rather reject Christ and continue to keep this dude alive.

The old man is the sinful nature which every human being has. Only Christ inside the human can destroy him.

Yet mankind will do anything to keep him alive and well, before coming to Christ.

Ah, the price of keeping sin is in the trillions, and yet people will pay it forward until Christ comes back and promotes good politics.

The cost of sin is the crux of our national debt.

The way out of this financial mess is repentance.

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 in not so nice of a place the humans’ eye will finally be opened and they will wonder why they loved the nursing home and the nursing home man.

For communication is not Face Book, its one on one and face to face.


I had an illuminating conversation yesterday.

This person confirmed things that I have felt from the Holy Ghost.

Facebook is the worst communication tool ever. Don’t use it for communicating anything serious.

Second to that is email, followed by phone calls.

The most effective way of communicating is one on one and face to face.

Any challenging situation subject to misunderstanding and volatility must be advanced one to one and face to face.

There are volatile issues which have been shackled to closed paradigms.

What is a closed paradigm?

These are explosive issues in which both sides have shut themselves to prejudging a situation around closed arguments, closed questions and closed responses.

Take the matter of the sexual schism plaguing our nation.

All sides have predisposed themselves to certain viewpoints which gender specific arguments, with the same questions asked and the same responses expected. Its “cookie cutter” communication.  Appalling.

If the answer falls outside of the closed expectation, accusations of hate speech, knee jerk reactions and eventual crucifixion fly.

Piers Morgan is a perfect example of a closed paradigm communicator.

This is why I will not go on his show.

The church is also guilty of painting the whole sexual thing with  a broad brush of black paint.

Jesus loves individuals, knows their individual stories, and encourages Christian leaders to know individuals.

Every story is different. Circumstances have been different.

You can only help people when you hear them as individuals

Mature leaders need at arise beyond the phenomena of closed paradigms.

In volatile issues I will not talk unless I can meet with the person.

For communication is not Face Book, its one on one and face to face.

How did Jesus find me in 1979? Did He subject me to a close paradigm or did He become a friend?

What drives you more, comfort, or hunger for the Word of God? This was our Bible conference in Masat, Kenya, home of Mr. Obama. In America, we complain that it’s too far to go to a church meeting. In Masat, there was no electricity. We rented a generator which was a luxury for the folks there. The children were so grateful to sing to an electric keyboard and microphone that they worshiped Jesus with them at 4:00 AM. The nights we were there, we could not sleep because of their singing. This is not a condemnation of the American church, which I am a part of, but a reality check? Could it be that we don’t see a huge impact by the church in the USA because we lack a spirit of sacrifice, when the Lord tells us to do something? What are you and I going to do about this in 2014? Has God given you a clear strategy to impact this country with Christ?

This was our toilet. It spelled an expedition of faith as you squatted over the hole, with your pants down, while simultaneously leaning over to hold the plastic covering which flapped in the wind, so that no one could see you

Cost


Mat 11:12  And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

The kingdom of God is taken by spiritual violence and spiritually strong and forceful people from moment to moment snatch, seize it, and take it away as a precious bounty.

 Rom 12:2  And be not conformed ( don’t follow the schematic drawing or the blueprint of this world system) to this world: but be ye transformed (metamorphosis; or attain to a complete and radical inward change and becoming a totally different individual)  by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove (only when we are radically changed can we then test, approve and possess for ourselves the mature, well pleasing, and good will of God) what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Transformation is the same word used for the metamorphosis of a tadpole to a frog or a caterpillar to a butterfly.  If we do not pay the price to affect that transformation, we will never be free.

 Acts 20:24  But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

Of no account do I make or hold my life in honor, so that I may complete my course on the horse track on which I am racing upon with joy, and the ministry that I received from the Lord to testify fully and thoroughly of the glad tidings of the grace of God.

 Philippians 3:12  Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after ( BIBLICAL WORD FOR PERSECUTION) , if that I may apprehend  (GRASP AND SEIZE) that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

I persecute, pursue, and overtake, in hope that I can grasp, seize, and make my own, all of what is contained in what Christ originally grasped and seized me for.

Philippians  3:13  Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

Therefore, I neglect and no longer care for what is behind me. I stretch myself out and towards, and run swiftly after what is before me. The direction being, the mark of the goal of the high price of unbroken fellowship of Christ’s resurrection life, and the hope of His calling for me.

 1 Timothy 6:19  Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

Seize and grab to, pull in, and make it our own possession.  Eternal life while we are on the earth is the resurrection life.  It does not come magically to us but must be seized and pulled in though obedience.

Matthew 25:1  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Matthew 25:3  They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

Took  from the Greek word to receive. To get, possess, and make my own. The foolish virgins did not obtain, and possessed the fullness of the Spirit.

 Galatians 4:19  My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,

Gal 6:15  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth(inward strength and force, to have strength to overcome health, ability, capacity) any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. 

Only Christ being formed and birthed in us is of any capacity or ability for us to overcome and get the spiritual victory.

Pattern


Heb 8:5  Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.
When Moses was about to build the tabernacle for God, God cautioned him to accurately construct it in accordance to a specific pattern that He would show him.  The Lord has a particular and unique pattern of ministerial construction for every local assembly, and every corporate and individual ministry.  In our Greek scriptures the word “admonished” is defined as “divine instruction according to revelation.” This is an exhortation for us to cautiously build our ministries step by step in line with the Holy Spirit’s wishes.
Every earthly ministry is as “an example and shadow of heavenly things.”   “An example”, is a copy or a model of the original.  Every ministry, which God calls us into, is the copy of an original which God has already created and dwells with Him in the heavenlies.  The brilliancy and the glory of these heavenly ministries create for us a shadow, or lets say an outline, for the ones who have been called to faithfully reproduce these ministries here on earth. The vast responsibility of all believers is to reproduce its heavenly original with the greatest of earthly accuracy.  The blessings of God will fall upon each ministry in proportion to how accurately it has been reproduced in “accordance with the pattern shown in the mount.”
One of the church’s great problems is that it has failed to grasp that every ministry has a “pattern shown in the mount.”  Because of this failure, we actively subscribe to, and create many   church activities.  Sadly enough, not many of them have much to do with any “patterns” that God has initially for them.  We sow much and reap little.  We will do much more by seeking and waiting upon the Lord for revelation, than in busily getting wrapped up in a host of church activities.
