EVERYDAYJESUS is our Curriculum

If I Give Tochi a bag of Gold and put scorpions inside,

So that when she puts her hand inside the bag the scorpion bites her, then on her death bed ‘I had staged to meet Courage in a burning bush’ then Courage tells Tochi I can save her and she brings me and I heal Tochi, and she gives me praise.

 

Later, they got to find out I was the one who put the scorpion in the first place, would that make me a good person??

 

NO!!

 

Don’t be afraid to ask ‘God-questions’ on scriptures that contradict what you have come to know about God and get a thinking CAP, I have one and I use it.

 

You have to know God from Jesus,

It is so so so so so IMPORTANT in understanding and interpreting scriptures.

 

If you don’t look from Jesus, you are sure to miss it.

 

And also, these questions help you understand that some words used in verses of scriptures actually teach something entirely different and we lose focus because of what our minds have been programmed to.

I always emphasize reading in context.

 

2days, ago in a discussion with someone I told her she would not make heaven, who am I?? Jesus’ gate man??

 

But it was in an argument to show her what she was doing to herself.

If you take that word out of the context and say that I said that someone will not make heaven.

 

You would be lying against me, but you would also have ‘scriptural backing’ for it.

 

 

Since birth, you have learnt the use of English, then you got better and more skillful with it.

Yet we don’t try to put half as much effort in studying scriptures that much.

 

Its in Reading that it becomes clear and established in your heart,

Teaching might open your eyes a bit, but when faced with a person who has also been taught wrongly, you ll realize that checking it and establishing it from scriptures would have done you a lot of good.

 

I have a disciple who is very zealous, when I teach her, she goes out and mention it, then sometimes she gets hacked and return with disappointment, I give her answers to those ‘hackings’, why??? Because what I taught her is just a tip of what I have studied on that topic.

 

NOBODY can teach u everything they know. But you can know everything your teacher knows, by reading what He reads

 

If you have seen me handle scriptures and you admire it,

Let me tell you the things I used in order of priority

 

*the King james Bible

*an APP with 27 different Translations

rarely *Greek concordance to check root words (but when I do this I come back to establish it in the scripture)

 

I have found root words that confuse more self,

So I stay safe in scriptures and scriptures alone.

 

I have also read books of people that bless me deeply

Kenneth Erwin Hagin is one of them

 

I love him so much that there is hardly a book of his on print that I don’t have

I go hungry and trek just to get his books at times

 

BUT, I hack him always with scriptures.

I have seen him misinterpret a verse in the bible.

And he himself has admitted to doing so before, he repented (sincerity)

So it comes back to one book

 

THE BIBLE.

 

Read it, read it and keep reading.

 

Let me say something I don’t usually say because its nobody’s business

 

I HAVE NEVER GONE THROUGH THE WHOLE BIBLE ONCE.

It means I haven’t read the whole bible before

 

I know people that do it at least once every year, he is my friend, and I teach him.

 

When I pick the bible to read, I read it.

I have been on Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians and the book of John 7-11 for days now

I found them particularly interesting

 

Paul spoke well of Christ’s coming to the Thessalonians

And then many things in John 7-11 is not recorded in other gospels.

 

So I get curious,

WHY???

 

These things don’t come from doing morning devotion and running off.

I don’t like being hacked in scriptures, it is important that I know about this eternal life I have gotten

 

And before you brush it off as ‘Their thing’

I got saved in 2010 and got to know about God’s grace barely a year ago, August last year to be precise

 

So it hasn’t been a year yet

How much growth you can see in a little time depends on time given to scriptures

If it is the morning devotion, don’t make it a routine, learn something,

Tackle questions that come up

Don’t brush them off

 

This life we have been called to is important

Just pray for understanding,

Pray and study, then pray again

Ask questions, keep at it

 

Paul gave Timothy a recommendation that I want to have someday

 

2Tim 3 NLT

14�But you must remain faithful to the things you have been taught. You know they are true, for you know you can trust those who taught you. 15�You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus.

 

From Childhood, Timothy have known and has been taught scriptures.

 

Please do same

You grow.

 

Take a ‘knowing God’ habit to scriptures

So when you are knowing a person, you can be sure what he can do and what he can’t do. If you find him exhibit two directly contrasting characters and you leave it

 

You have not known Him. Or let me say you have not come to take knowing Him serious.

For a believer, you find answers to life’s troubling questions from scriptures

You know things to believe and things to cast out @ first glance from scriptures

 

Hear what Paul told the Thessalonians

 

2Thess 2 NLT

1�Now, dear brothers and sisters, let us clarify some things about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and how we will be gathered to meet him. 2�Don’t be so easily shaken or alarmed by those who say that the day of the Lord has already begun. Don’t believe them, even if they claim to have had a spiritual vision, a revelation, or a letter supposedly from us. 3�Don’t be fooled by what they say. For that day will not come until there is a great rebellion against God and the man of lawlessness is revealed-the one who brings destruction.

 

4 He will exalts himself and defy everything that people call god and every object of worship. He will even sit in the temple of God, claiming that he himself is God.

 

 

Focus on verse 2

 

……. 2�Don’t be so easily shaken or alarmed by those who say that the day of the Lord has already begun. Don’t believe them, even if they claim to have had a spiritual vision, a revelation, or a letter supposedly from us.

 

Even if they claim to have had a spiritual vision.

 

But that is all the church knows about the second coming;

Visions of earring and trouser, and short skirts and tattoos

 

….and trumpet almost blown and Jesus shows His hands and God gives us time

 

Did the world get better after that?? NO

It grew worse

 

CHURCH THINK.

Hear Paul’s admonition to Timothy

 

I would show you this, and then show you how Paul did full time ministry

 

I don’t know why am saying all this but I think young ministers are here, take care on how you run…… Let’s hear what Paul told timothy

 

2Tim 3 NLT

 

1�You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. 2�For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. 3�They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4�They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.

 

It goes on…..

 

5�They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!

6�They are the kind who work their way into people’s homes and win the confidence of vulnerable women who are burdened with the guilt of sin and controlled by various desires. 7�(Such women are forever following new teachings, but they are never able to understand the truth.)

 

It gets interesting…..

 

8�These teachers oppose the truth just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses. They have depraved minds and a counterfeit faith.

 

9�But they won’t get away with this for long. Someday everyone will recognize what fools they are, just as with Jannes and Jambres.

 

Then the admonishing

 

10�But you, Timothy, certainly know what I teach, and how I live, and what my purpose in life is. You know my faith, my patience, my love, and my endurance. 11�You know how much persecution and suffering I have endured. You know all about how I was persecuted in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra but the Lord rescued me from all of it. 12�Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

 

13�But evil people and impostors will flourish. They will deceive others and will themselves be deceived.

 

Now see Paul’s ministry

 

1Thes 2 NLT

1�You yourselves know, dear brothers and sisters, that our visit to you was not a failure. 2�You know how badly we had been treated at Philippi just before we came to you and how much we suffered there. Yet our God gave us the courage to declare his Good News to you boldly, in spite of great opposition.

 

3�So you can see we were not preaching with any deceit or impure motives or trickery.

4�For we speak as messengers approved by God to be entrusted with the Good News. Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts.

 

See how they showed themselves as men approved of God:

 

5 Never once did we try to win you with flattery, as you well know. And God is our witness that we were not pretending to be your friends just to get your money!

 

6 As for human praise, we have never sought it from you or anyone else.

7 As apostles of Christ we certainly had a right to make some demands of you, but instead we were like children among you. Or we were like a mother feeding and caring for her own children.

 

8 We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too.

……Examples worth emulating, it goes on

 

9 Don’t you remember, dear brothers and sisters, how hard we worked among you? Night and day we toiled to earn a living so that we would not be a burden to any of you as we preached God’s Good News to you. 10 You yourselves are our witnesses and so is God that we were devout and honest and faultless toward all of you believers. 11�And you know that we treated each of you as a father treats his own children.

 

In your ministry, the choice to put God first or your belly first is yours.

 

Its not in the message with mouth, it is in the doing.

 

It is not out of place for the minister to also be the one giving people money seeing that they don’t have.

I say this now and I imagine

 

It is not out of place for Cedars to be the one giving honorarium when they are invited by a people who don’t have much.

 

Work and have money to do your ministry with…

 

Let me stop talking,

Stay in Grace.

EVERYDAYJESUS is our communion!

Sitting here and waiting fast,

Hoping I’m forgotten last,

When is it I wrote last?

Shoulders like a Glo mast.

 

When I was a member people washed me like a body,

Now there are fine-artists, making up the way to make it.

 

But what is it I’m trying to make?

From which dream am I to wake?

What I wanted now is mine,

Yet I just redrew each line.

 

We are the smiles that were aimed to please you;

The sentences colored with ‘Sirs’ and ‘Please’ too.

Appropriation will still be the M.O.

But speed is not key, we win in slow-mo.

 

No hidden agendas, no need for speed sir;

Words are my ammo, my pen’s a healer.

It seems to me that Narcissus is back;

We all need to cash that reality check.

 

Someday we’ll all lick truth sundaes.

We’ll be real all the time, not some days.

I’ll be your growth, my art your laughter,

Love, Joy and Peace in the Sunday after.

 

Steady steady my heart, when I’m ready I start;

Stains hidden by light, the Word still is my might.

Floating above the norm, a star above the storm,

My eyes on who is in me, my ears on where I’m from.

 

Fathers will be fathers, their ignorance doesn’t diminish them.

The trick is to see their offices, we each all have a problem.

Growth should be the mission, everybody listen.

This is not by power, fear is still the prison.

 

We all fall down, pride grabs the steering;

We misplace identities, princes in the waste bin.

I am being made perfect, though not me alone,

Obligation is a rung on the ladder of adoption.

 

There’s still a hierarchy although we all are one oh,

Now there are stones where there once was bread though,

Their words were once enough, we all were well bred though.

So when they tell my story, I’ll win with more than ‘1-0’

 

Someday we’ll be examples, the future study our ways

We’ll be real all the time, not just on some days.

I’ll be your growth, my art your laughter,

Love, Joy and Peace in the Sunday after.

By Daniel Achikanu, 2017.

EVERYDAYJESUS is my Thanksgiving!

Father let me start by saying, a million tanks can’t hold the volumes of thanks you deserve. What you’ve made me is adhesive to these broken hearts. This your grace is so on point it makes a fool stop. Father of Laws, farther from loss, he one it all.

 

I can’t be done with praise till the end of days (no farmland). I got the guts to tell a vision from a selfie; Brother, Jesus has been to hell and he set my Ruth free. Love has got me, like a beat box in a ribcage. Yes I trust and I obey, you should read the page right or the right page.

 

Tired of the accusations, I am justified. You the finger of the Devil? Check your stupid index. Love is all I’m filled with, the ink to my form, from him I was born. You can call me another begotten of God, and it isn’t my love his Word speaks out of, but his love is a plane mountain me higher.

 

This ember was hit with the heat of his breadth from beneath his nose thrills and now December hasn’t a pagan holy day anymore. I don’t look to the hills no more, my Help is from within where I’m hidden in Him, speaking life, wise; because he rose, I am reason. I don’t need matches to wordplay or enlighten, I’m burn again.

 

Next year, though eternal I’ll be older, hidden in the rock of ages, unafraid, I am boulder. The King is my size and my broader. Body of Christ, far above, who can put ass on her.

 

The pages of life are my kitchen, I’m cooking the truth and I serve him. I comb through the word and you hair it. Even wishes know we made it.

 

I got God in this temple; like Disney, its still skin I rumple. We got word in this army; I’m part of his house so I window (win though). We’re alight and foretold, we are paper-people, we’re to come and we’re hotter than pepper, peep on at our purpose.

 

Now, if our mindsets are prison, its the Son that frees us. And I hope that you caught this, with those eyes like scissors.

EVERYDAYJESUS is our Rap Sheet! 2

 

So many sense organs, yet not enough sense

Light weight sons of a God so dense

Though He’s ever present we are gifted in the past tense

Imprisoned in eternity, my death serves a life sentence.

 

Life is like okpa, when I leave, you can wrap it up.

Boom!

Shot it down though we tall enough to live it up

Running our race, once was human now is heavenly

If the Truth is bitter, then lies give diabetes

 

People start to branch when they cannot bear your fruit,

Sir, Ashes to ashes, we all follow soot;

Be on fire for the Lord or be fired up with lore.

Yes! It is all for God or did you forget to die today?

By Daniel Achikanu; January,2017.

 

EVERYDAYJESUS is our Rap Sheet!

 

Evening

Didn’t really mean to write me another song,

Remember those days when I clogged my lungs,

Now am good with people, I’m the charming one.

You don’t have to count, I’m number one.

 

Sometimes I wonder about my drive,

Cars ain’t an issue but we need the miles.

Don’t want to end up just folding files,

Only to come home and pray for size.

My mind’s on that product, no time to prize.

 

Quchi is the name, but love is the game,

There is always going to be room for names,

That is better than gold, especially for the pikin;

Opportunities will call them, they will be picky.

God be their noses, they will always pick him.

He will color their scent, they will breath in him.

Quchi is the name, and I want the fame,

You may call me proud, I call you insane.

Welcome to the trip, this is my relay,

Yes, I got lust but I know The Way.

Never let society be the measure of me,

You have to excuse me, God died for me.

 

The devil is dead to me, Check on wiki;

I still pray for all those in his shoes

He’s so not an issue.

 

When you check please,

Sign here, if you can answer,

‘WHO DEVIL EPP?!’

 

But my Jesus is precious, victorious and yes Boss, He’s God once and always.

There is just no comparison,

There is just no comparison.

Mohamed is dead but Jesus is still risen,

Higher than Angels, no teasing.

No advertising, just one meeting

EVERYDAYJESUS is our Translation! (A review)

Hebrews 1:1-2 says something that we will now focus on.
Hebrews 1:1
“God, who at sundry times and in diverse manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
1:2 hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;”
We can see in those statements that over time there was a change in the mode of communication so to speak of God. Not because God changed, God does not change but because revelation knowledge came progressively. That means more light of the person of God came with time.
It says God spoke to the fathers by the prophets long ago. But in the latter times he has spoken by (his) Son.
One thing you should note is the verb used.
GOD HAS SPOKEN!
God has spoken and how did he speak?
He spoke unto us by (his) Son.
The word (his) is in italics. If you take it out it says “he has spoken unto us BY SON.”
There is a perspective that needs to be seen that seems to hide in KJV. Some translations showed it. God spoke through the prophets. They were mouthpieces. Jesus was not a prophet. He was not a mouthpiece. He was who was spoken about by the prophets. In the prophets God was speaking a Son.
So some translations render “by” as “in”
Amplified does. Darby translation does.
Hebrew 1:2 (DARBY)
“At the end of these days has spoken to us in [the person of the] Son, whom he has established heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds…”
It says he has spoken to us IN SON. In the person of the Son.
What is the point?
Every time God spoke the thought he was communicating was Jesus. Even in the law. Paul will tell you the law was our schoolmaster to lead us to Christ.
If i send people to tell you about someone. I kept sending many people and they were telling about the same person. Then one day the person comes. You will say “oh, finally! He is here”. You should not say
‘Who have you come to speak about?’
If he speaks about someone else then the speaking continues. But when that person comes and speaks it will have to be about himself.
Please stay with me. We will use the things we are establishing all through. John used a word to talk about him in John 1:1. He used the word “logos”; Logos is the idea you communicate in speech. It is the thought that is communicated in language. So you can call it the reason behind a speaking. Everyone, whether wise or foolish has something in their mind that was the reason why they opened their mouths to speak. That reason is the idea the word logos communicates. I know there is a popular understanding of logos and rhema. We’ll clear them.
‘Rhema’ is the words you use to communicate logos. When Jesus said man shall live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, the word used was ‘rhema’. Rhema is the articulated expression of a thought. When the New Testament refers to what was written, that is the scriptures it uses the word ‘graphe’. Just follow me it will get clearer as we go. Like I said, there is a popular understanding.
I’ll give you proofs of what I am saying and I hope they are enough but let’s put on our thinking caps and think about ‘logos’ being the written word.
The written word will be the bible in that case so let’s think. John 1:1 says in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and the word was God. If logos is the written word then you can put it like this:
“In the beginning was the written word, and the written word was with God and the written word was God”
Or you can put bible in place of written word
Then we can pat ourselves and call ourselves idol worshippers of a book. Jesus used ‘rhema’ for when he said every WORD from the mouth of God and he was referring to the scriptures. All the speaking through all the mouthpieces that communicated the logos of God in all the sundry times and all the diverse manners as we see in Hebrews 1:1. The word translated as word in John 1 is ‘logos’. It’s like this:
“In the beginning was the logos, and the logos was with God and the logos was God”
Logos is thought, plan, idea. Let’s substitute in John 1:1
“In the beginning was the thought, the thought was with God, the thought was God.”
Down to v14 it is:
“And the thought, plan, was made flesh…”
In the beginning God had a plan, a thought, and a will for man. The thought was with God (of course. Your thought is yours). The thought was God. God thought God. God planned God. So Isaiah will speak of IMMANUEL— God with us. God planned God with us. The word became flesh and dwelt among us and he was called the Son of God.
It is such abysmal ignorance that makes Jehovah’s Weaknesses call Jesus an angel because God planned God in man: Immanuel. I’ll show you the words in the Greek.
1: λόγος
(Strong’s #3056 — Noun Masculine — logos — log’-os)
Denotes (I) “the expression of thought,” not the mere name of an object, (a) as embodying a conception or idea,
2: ῥῆμα
(Strong’s #4487 — Noun Neuter — rhema — hray’-mah)
Denotes “that which is spoken, what is uttered in speech or writing;” in the singular, “a word,”
Apart from the words used in the Greek we have a bible understanding. Jesus is the thought of God. That is why we can study types and shadows and say they all pointed to Jesus. He is the reason for the speaking.
How?
Through the incarnation in the Virgin Mary. John 1:14 says the word WAS MADE flesh: He was not always flesh? He never said that!
How can God say who will go when the prophecy said he shall be called Immanuel? God with us.
The position was not open to everyone.
The writer of Hebrews explains that it was not offered to angels.
Hebrews 1:4
“Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 1:5, for unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?”
Apart from the words used in the Greek we have a bible understanding. Jesus is the thought of God. That is why we can study types and shadows and say they all pointed to Jesus. He is the reason for the speaking.
The logos talks about the plan of God. The plan was spoken through the prophets in many dispensations. The words used to communicate the thought is the ‘rhema’. We have studied and seen that Gen 1:26 “let us make man in our image” was a speaking of the plan of God. We can say it was the ‘rhema’ of the logos. When Jesus came he talked about himself.
You need to really correct your idea of pride as blowing of your own trumpet. Pride is to not agree with God. It is to not be submissive to God. Jesus “blew his own trumpet” so to speak. If he didn’t he would have been proud.
Why?
He is the trumpet of God!
When he said “I am the way, the truth and the life” he was pointing all to himself.
Not doing that would have been pride.
If he were to have said: “I am the way but I can’t tell people because I don’t want to blow my own trumpet” then it would have been pride on his part. He spoke about himself. That was humility on his part. Because his words were the words God said about him. Now to you: the word of God says you are holy and without blame in God’s sight (Col 1:22).
If you say you are not holy then you are proud.
The word of God calls you a saint. If you say you are not a saint then you are proud.
1Cor 1:2
The bible reveals you are righteous.
(2Corinthians 5:21, Ephesians 4:24)
If you say you are not then you are proud.
So Jesus will say “I and the Father are one”. They’ll pick up stones to throw at him for claiming equality with God but he will not change his confession. He will later be framed and crucified for it and he will quietly die, choosing death over speaking a single word that will contradict the truth of God no matter who it pisses off.
We’ve done all this to explain Hebrews 1:2.
From the time Jesus was born till now no other prophet was sent to Israel. Jesus called John the last prophet. After John came the heralding of the kingdom.
No other prophet will be sent from God to foretell the coming of Jesus. Why?
He has already come.
GOD HAS SPOKEN IN HIS SON.
So don’t expect a ‘new word’ from the Lord.
We’ll get a little technical now. God spoke through the prophets. Then he spoke in his Son.
He told all that witnessed the transfiguration scene: the disciples and the prophets to hear the Son. This will show us that any time there is a disagreement in what any prophet said and anything we learn in Jesus we will take the revelation of Jesus as higher than theirs.
(New Living Translation)
Matthew 19:8:
Jesus replied, “Moses permitted divorce only as a concession to your hard hearts, but it was not what God had originally intended.”
We have studied and seen that what the prophets spoke was not understood until Jesus came and explained them. He the Holy Ghost who inspired the prophets to speak to us and Paul who never heard him teach did the same thing he did. He explained the scriptures. Paul explained things Jesus told them he could not say to them because they could not bear them. The prophets who spoke did not even understand what they spoke.
1Peter 1:10-10:10
AMP: The prophets, who prophesied of the grace (divine blessing) which was intended for you, searched and inquired earnestly about this salvation.
11
AMP: They sought [to find out] to whom or when this was to come which the Spirit of Christ working within them was indicating when He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that should follow [them].
12
AMP: It was then disclosed to them that the services they were rendering were not meant for themselves and their period of time, but for you.”
It was revealed to them that whatever they said was not for their time, said Peter. Let’s see Paul:
This is Ephesians 3
Ephesians 3:2-4 NLT
“As I briefly wrote earlier, God
Himself revealed his mysterious plan to
me. As you read what I have written, you
will understand my insight into this plan
regarding Christ. God did not reveal it to
previous generations, but now by his Spirit
he has revealed it to his holy apostles and
Prophets.”
He said it was not revealed to previous generations. So the prophets did not know what they said. They spoke without revelation.
Hear Paul teach the Corinthians the same thing
1 Corinthians 2:7
“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
2:8. Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”
Just like he taught the Ephesians he said it was hidden. Nobody knew it. Eyes did not see, ears did not hear, minds did not understand. No one understood what God planned for us.
It was a mystery.
It was mysterious to them.
Is it still a mystery?
No.
He said God has revealed the mystery to us (the apostles, the church) by his Spirit.
Now here is where our study lies.
The next verse says something that we have to understand. And it’s why no one understood, not even the prophets.
1 Corinthians 2:11
“For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.”
That explains why the prophets did not understand. No one can understand the things of God except one with his Spirit. And the prophets did not have the Spirit.
Let me explain:
Except you share a nature you cannot fully understand those with that nature. Except you are a goat you cannot fully understand goats. You can bleat like a goat but you wouldn’t know if there is some level of communication in that sound to a goat. You can watch them all day but you might never be able to truly understand why they return to eat just few seconds later after you hit them with a big stick. Maybe if you were a goat you will come to think that it is unfair to think goats are foolish for coming back to eat the yam peels after the blows they’ve received.
Goats too cannot understand man. They can’t understand why you keep chasing them from the yam. You can only study them. You will never understand them to the level of nature. Now imagine you wanted to pass a message to the goat kingdom. You are a man trying to communicate with goats. You want tell them something good you have planned for them.
How would you go about it?
You know that if you speak directly to goats they will not understand. That won’t work. Goats will only understand goats. But you are wise. Somehow you figure out a way to make certain goats experience your mind and to speak that experience in goat language. The goats you “inspire” then speak the things that you “reveal” to them from time to time.
As they speak they will from time to time try to interpret what they are saying to their fellow goats but they too are goats. They can’t “KNOW” the things of a man because only one that shares the nature of man (nature) can know the things of a man. You say what you have planned for them through their holy goats for a long time. Imagine that all you tried to tell them that what you want planned for them only you can do it. And to do it you will have to become a goat.
Imagine that all you tried to tell them was that what you planned for them only you could do it. To do it you will have to become a goat, share their nature. Then after a long time one day a goat is pregnant and claimed she did not mate with any male goat. She said the goat inside of me is a Man-Goat. His father, source is a man. Then that goat was born. What has happened is the man has expressed himself in Goatemburg (Goat kingdom).
That is not just a birth but an incarnation. The Man-goat can look at their oldest goat ever and say before you I was if the nature that sourced it existed before the goat nature was created.
Now in that Man-goat is a suitable being called a mediator. He is a cross between human nature and goat nature. This goat can understand human language and goat language alike. This is the depth of that single statement Paul made. That goat can now go ahead and take everything the holy goats said all through the years and interpret it to goats in clear goat language. When the voice said “hear ye him” it was because he has the Spirit of God so he was the one who really KNOWS/UNDERSTANDS the things of God.
The bible explains in Hebrew 1:3 that this Jesus is the brightness of God’s glory, the express image of his person. He is the image of God.
He is the flawless representation of God. He is what you see of an invisible God.
Praise God for his deep, deep wisdom.
In him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily. In him is all of God put in a human body. Having the Spirit of God and therefore knowing the things of God he explained them to the people. He said Moses in the law, the prophets and the Psalms spoke concerning him. He said the scriptures testify of him.
He opened their understanding to the scriptures.
Glory to God!

EVERYDAYJESUS is our clarity too (a review)!

Let’s study a bit
Take what we have known and put them in perspective of the whole bible and see what we find
Let’s start from the beginning.
And when I say ‘beginning’ I mean Genesis
Let’s start from ‘Moses’
There are thoughts which should have come to your mind if you read the bible and if they haven’t, let me bring them
Moses was born in Exodus 2.
But he wrote the book of Genesis?
You would be careful in reading the things that he wrote happened before Abraham and especially before NOAH.
Then we think most of the things he wrote were by inspiration and he wrote to his understanding…..We believe Moses wrote Genesis to Deuteronomy but I saw Deuteronomy 34:5-6
5…Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord.
6. And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab……….
Was that by inspiration too?
The only explanation is that someone else wrote that Book. But then, studies in the Old Testament show us that other parts of the Torah or Pentateuch are stylistically inconsistent. For example, have you noticed that there are two creation accounts? And they are not like the accounts of the gospels. The gospels as you know, even with differences, often say the same thing. So while in Mark, Jesus could do no mighty works in a certain place, in Matthew Jesus could also do no mighty works in the same place.
But in Genesis, we see God makes male and female in Chapter 1 but makes a male alone at first in Chapter 2 before a woman. Jesus even quotes this passage Matthew 19 and Mark 10. If Moses was
operating under inspiration, would the inspirer contradict himself or would Moses, writing, not notice his own inconsistencies?
Yet for me the most compelling proof against the authorship of Moses is the fact that the Pentateuch is written in Third person. Why would I refer to myself in third person when writing about myself?
Other examples can be found in Amos, Hosea and Isaiah (amongst others) of prophets whose ministry was documented by other people. It doesn’t reduce the authenticity or audacity of the books or the prophets. Ezekiel is the only Major Prophet that wrote by himself, and it can be seen in his style. He writes in first person perspective. It’s very simple.
Now, a lot of Christians believe the curse at the end of Revelation will apply to them if they dare think through scripture like this. So they’d rather let some pastor take the blame while they blindly follow him. It’s OK…
However, the curse in Revelation can only apply to the book of Revelation since the Bible was not compiled by then. With knowledge like this, we can better understand the anachronisms and variations in the Pentateuch.
In Mark 5, Jesus says Moses was talking about him; that is to say, Moses is reported as saying things which actually were about him, Jesus.
Study for yourself… Dig into the Old Testament… Because EVERDAYJESUS is our clarity too.

#EVERYDAYJESUS is your response

Psalms 119:99-100
 I have better understanding and deeper insight than all my teachers, because Your testimonies are my meditation.
I understand more than the aged, because I keep Your precepts [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them].

Romans 12:2
Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].

In the light of the scriptures read, 119th chapter of The Psalms and 12th chapter of Paul’s Letter to the Romans, I see that saying continually to ourselves ‘I have a sound mind’ continually will neither activate, facilitate nor develop our minds.

But according to the scriptures, we must be conscious of the word. This we can do by bombarding our minds with the Word. Get recordings of sermons, find Gospel music that is spiritual because its scriptural, be disciples of Jesus and Love rather than tradition and complacence.

This way…our minds will be renewed because the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it.

That’s rest.

Look to Jesus by listening to the Word. Study it when you can. Listen to Christ in you all through the day. This way Everyday, Jesus is your response.
