Who Is in Charge and What the Church Is Not

Jim shares a short, but powerful message on this week’s Torah portion (Terumah) and reveals one of the most incredible hidden messages in the original Hebrew of Proverbs 30:4-6. (PFT Fellowship 2-5-11)

Here is an image portraying what Jim Staley is talking about in the video above from Proverbs 30:4-6 in the original Hebrew.

Here are a couple of other images summarizing a really long study tracking Hebrew names to their common English derivations.  There were no J’s back then – that is a recent innovation.

Now that we know a little about who is in charge, let’s talk about our role.  If we are His body here on earth (and I believe we are if we have believed into Him), then we should know what we are and what we are not. For many years I have thought that He often contains (or restrains) Himself based on what we think and do and say. It is not that He cannot do anything that He wants to do, but He has His ways and His goal is for us to come into harmony with Him. Thus He waits patiently for our proper call. As long as we are distracted and busy doing other things, we are clearly not busy doing His work and inviting His presence in our midst.  We must seek Him to find out what that entails.

This week I got an email from a friend, named Kit Pharo on “What the Church is Not.”  He is doing a whole email series on what the church is not. His initial list is below:

The Church is NOT:

  • a man-made building
  • a man-made denomination
  • a set of man-made doctrines
  • for unbelievers (non-Christians)
  • a social club or gossip center
  • an entertainment center
  • an event that has a dress code
  • a place to drop off your kids
  • a place where large crowds sit in rows staring at the back of someone else’s head
  • an organization with a distinction between clergy and laity
  • an event that must start at a specific time on a specific day
  • a substitute for individual Bible study and prayer
  • the only place you should act Christ-like
  • a 501.c.3 organization
  • an organization that is based on anyone other than Jesus Christ
  • headquartered here on earth

I [Kit] ask that you pray for God’s wisdom and guidance as we go through this series.   May we all be enlightened by God.   May we all be willing to submit to God’s will – and may God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

As Kit says, “Don’t just GO to church; BE the Church”

If you want to see more on this topic, please drop him a note asking to be added to his devotional email list here: Email: Kit@PharoCattle.com and/or visit his website for more information: www.PharoCattle.com

So please join me in seeking Him and finding out what we need to do NOW!

PLEASE NOTE:  I will be reopening the FGST email list and sending periodic transmissions to it via Constant Contact.  If you want to be on that list you may subscribe/unsubscribe here.  The anticipated volume for FGST is 1-4 per month and it is whatever I think is important enough to send out.  I only want to be in touch with people who really want to hear from me so opt in or out any time for any reason.  The same form gives you the option to sign up for OKGrassroots (Oklahoma political) and CLibertyC (multi-state/library project) as well.

Signs of the Times that Concern Me & Encourage Me — So Watch and Be Ready!

Background:  I believe in Jesus AND I think the Old Testament is as valid as the New Testament.   All of the Word was given to guide us to our Heavenly Home through the redemptive work of Jesus on the cross.  I believe that Jesus is coming back and there are signs in the heavens and on the planet about the timing of his return.  The good news is He is coming back.  The bad news is it could get very rough here before His return.  So be ready and seek Him while He may be found.  This post will update you on Signs in the Heavenlies, Tremors on the Earth, and Israel and the Restoration of the Temple, and the Blood of Jesus on the Mercy Seat.

Signs in the Heavenlies

Eclipse from lunar tetrad post

Where we are now:  It is 2014 and just up ahead is the first of four blood moons in sync with biblical feast days.  See my earlier post on topic with a video; be sure to read the comments for more links and information.  I recommend this video to all believers, seekers of truth, and all who are even remotely interested in the signs of the times.

Feast-day Eclipses in 2014-15: What do they Mean? (4 Lunar and 1 Solar)

  • Lunar Passover April 15, 2014
  • Lunar Sukkot October 08, 2014
  • Solar Eclipse Adar 29 Nisan 1 March 20, 2015
  • Lunar Passover April 04, 2015
  • Lunar Sukkot September 28, 2015

Tremors on the Earth

Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami and Radioactive Nuclear Waste into the Surrounding Oceans –  March 11, 2011 9.0 with 15,884 confirmed deaths. This megathrust earthquake‘s hypocenter was reported to be off the Oshika Peninsula, the east coast of Tōhoku[69] It was the strongest to hit Japan and one of the top five largest earthquakes in the world since seismological record-keeping began.[70][71][72] It was followed by a tsunami with waves of up to 10 m (33 ft).[70] The disaster left thousands dead and inflicted extensive material damage to buildings and infrastructure that led to significant accidents at four major nuclear power stations. 2,633 people missing[73] (references via Wikipedia)  My report / video for reference here>>>

Earthquakes in Oklahoma 2014.

In Wyoming there is apparently increased seismic activity that is not being widely reported.  The reports are that the animals are leaving Yellowstone.  Here is one such report with videos http://rt.com/usa/epoch-bison-yellowstone-volcano-909/ 

We are experiencing increased seismic activity and earthquakes in Oklahoma possibly as a result.  They are increasing in frequency and intensity.  The epicenter appears to be near OKC.

Here is one report of several earthquakes in rapid succession in Oklahoma in 2014 http://www.okcfox.com/story/25046264/9-earthquakes-recorded-in-oklahoma-since-friday

Israel and the Restoration of the Temple & The Blood of Jesus on the Mercy Seat

And now for the strangest but possibly most significant report of all.  I am still working on verifying this story, but here it is in brief and you all can help me do the research.  Apparently a man named Ron Wyatt discovered the Ark of the Covenant hidden in caves in the area of Jerusalem beneath the actual crucifixion site of Jesus.  He found on the Mercy Seat some of the dried blood that spilled from our Lord’s side that day and as you will remember there was an earthquake and the temple veil was rent from top to bottom.  Apparently some of that blood made its way into the earth and down into the cave and landed on the Mercy Seat.  Now does that sound like something God would do and reveal His hand in the matter to you?

Anyway, Ron Wyatt had the blood analyzed and here is the story in his own words.

So once you know that you want to know where he found that blood.  Here is more on that story.

I hope to post more on this topic as time permits but I will simply add that Ron Wyatt died in 1999 and apparently this story has remained hidden for a reason.  He told the Israelis where the ark of the covenant was located and they sealed it up for now, but know where to go when the temple rebuilders are ready for it.  The family has kept the story pretty quiet until now because of their particular end time philosophy and not wanting to tell the story until the mark of the beast was codified.  They believe it was codified with Obamacare and is being implemented now and it is time to tell the story if I interpret the things I have read correctly.  Anyway this man seems like a bit of a cross between Indiana Jones and an itinerant preacher of a day gone by.  Seems like just the type of fellow YAHWEH would use to confound the academics in our day and age!  See what you think and of course…

Keep looking up!
