Oh, the humanity: theunfetteredpreacher

Oh, the humanity.

13 dead, and 1 dead, from a deliberate terrorism by car.

The Media is consumed with our President aligning the KKK to Antifa and BLM’s.

The implication is Antifa, and BLM, are Righteous, their cause Just, that the Lawbreaking, Police Killing, Confederate History Erasing , is all normal behavior.

IT IS NOT.

The KKK is despicable, as are Antifa and BLM’s.

They are all terrorists. They should be prosecuted and jailed. If caught in the act, SHOT….

We need to adhere to the law. Respect the law. Support the law abiding, and prosecute the lawless.

The President is right. The left… KKK, ANTIFA AND BLM’s, are ALL EQUALLY AT FAULT.

Quit pretending, the lefts, law breakers, are great people, and the Conservatives, (not the KKK), but Conservatives, Patriots, people who just want to Make America Great Again, are the ones to hate.

We need to use our God given intellect, to sort through the lies and intellectual dishonesty of the left, and join together to, MAGA.

Rant complete. Amen

The Ministry Years: Miracle 39- – The Tomb is empty – wondering in himself – theunfetteredpreacher

The Tomb is empty.

The last Miracle before the ascension.

Luke 24:1-12 (KJV)  Mark 16:1-8 (KJV)  Matthew 28:1-8 (KJV) 
John 20:1-12 (KJV)

The  Tomb is empty.

Peter, “wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

They had seen Him dead, and buried.  They came to ready Him for a proper burial.

The Tomb is empty.

Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary , “they were much perplexed.”

The Tomb was empty.

The Apostles.    “they believed them not.

The Tomb was empty.

Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome.  “they trembled and were amazed:”

they were afraid.”

The Tomb was empty.

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary.  “departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy;

The Tomb was empty.

Mary Magdalene.  “stood without at the sepulchre weeping:”

Wondering in himself, perplexed, believed not, trembled, amazed, afraid, fear and great joy, (having heard the promise of a Resurrected Christ), Stood weeping.

How would we have reacted?  The Word tells us they had not yet,  “remembered his words,”  “For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.”

This should open our eyes.  We have Scripture, that, As yet we know not the meaning.   Do not reject out of hand a revelation a saint may have.

Study to see if these things be true.  If it is a revelation from God, there will be two or three other scriptures to confirm.

If you find confirmation, embrace this new revelation, it is given to carry out the Lords work.

Deuteronomy 29:29

The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”

The Lord has given us the bricks to build His Church.  (the gifts of the Spirit),  We must learn to use them.

Luke 24:1-12 (KJV)

“Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:

And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?

He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

And they remembered his words,

And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.

It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.

And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not. 

Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.”

Mark 16:1-8 (KJV)

“And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.

And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?

And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.

And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.

And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.

And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.”

Matthew 28:1-8 (KJV)

“In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:

And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.”

John 20:1-12 (KJV)

“The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.

Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.

So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.

And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.

Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,

And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.

Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.

For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.

Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.

But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,

And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.”

The Ministry Years: Miracle 38. – – theunfetteredpreacher

Luke 22:48-54 (KJV)

The healing of the servant of the high priests ear.

No muss, no fuss, He reached out and touched. Why do we have such a hard time, accepting the promise of our doing the same?

We no longer  believe like a little child, knowing our needs and desires are met.

Just a touch from Jesus, saves, heals, sets free, comforts, gives peace, joy, and love.

Accept Him and His Gifts today.

Don’t be like Peter.

 

Luke 22:48-54 (KJV)

48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
49 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.
51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.
52 Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
53 When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
54 Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest’s house. And Peter followed afar off.

Boiled Over: theunfetteredpreacher

White Supremacy, white privilege, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, KKK, Black Panthers…ect, ect, ect…..

All groups full of hate.

What to do? Have we strayed so far from God, we are doomed?

Has the Godless left won?

Is our youth, so intellectually challenged, that they do not recognize how foolish it is to try to erase history?

Our esteemed Governor, Roy Cooper has jumped on the band wagon, he would remove all the Confederate Statues to museums….

STOP THIS MADNESS…. STOP IT, STOP IT, STOP IT….

You cannot change history. If you forget it, you are bound to repeat it.

There is much in my life, I am ashamed of.   There is much, I wish,  that I never had thought of doing, never mind having done.

But, it is done.  I was a fool, who did foolish things that hurt others and myself.  I am sorry for my failures, my mistakes, my SINS.

They happened.  I cannot deny them.  They are part of my History.  A History that cannot be changed.

It can only be regretted, repented of, and denied the opportunity to occur again.

A changed heart and mind are required.

Why are we so offended by inanimate objects?

While we are not offended, by the  disregard of our laws?  Public property, destroyed,  of thinking, if we do not see it, it never happened.

Pulling down statutes,  does not erase the truth they represent.

Quit acting like ignorant 14th century people.

We must learn from our past.  Make a better future.

Quit repeating the horrors we are trying to erase.

Lord, come soon.   Amen

The Ministry Years: Miracle 37 -perfected praise- theunfetteredpreacher

Matthew 21:12-16. (KJV)

The cleansing of the Temple,  my house is a house of prayer, not a den of thieves.

In the midst, of throwing out the thieves, He found those needing a touch from Him.

The blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.”

The scribes and priests,  saw this… and were displeased.    Why?

They were not the center of attention.   Jesus, went about doing good, free, for real.  The religious were not happy.

Those He touched, lifted praise to the King.  We need to lift praise, accept His touch, share His love.

Perfect Praise, is  realizing, His Power and Love.

 

12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.

15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased,

16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

The Ministry Years: Miracle 36 – – theunfetteredpreacher

Matthew 20:29-34  Mark 10:46-52

Luke 18:35-43

Once again Jesus going to where people had needs.

Blind men calling to Him….  When rebuked by the crowd called even more.

It is interesting, Jesus, did not go to them, but called them to come to Him.

We must come to Jesus,  He is always there, just out of our way.  He doesn’t interfere in our life’s choices, freewill is always available.

He allows us to choose wrong, or right.  We reap the reward of our choices.   Notice, they were specific, when asked their desire.

That my eyes be opened, that I would receive my sight.

That is a prayer we need to pray for the world.  That our eyes be opened.  That we would see into the spiritual realm.  That we would understand His love.

Immediately they could see.

When we come to the Lord, (we must leave our sinful nature and desires behind), when we come, ready to believe and obey, we find ourselves healed, set free, and forgiven.

If we would just learn how to enter the Holy of Holies, we would live, lives of answered prayers.

Matthew 20:29-34  (KJV)

29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.
30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?
33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

Mark 10:46-52 (KJV)

46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.
48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.
49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.
50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.
52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Luke 18:35-43 (KJV)

35 And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:
36 And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.
37 And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.
38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.
39 And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.
40 And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him,
41 Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight.
42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.
43 And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

The Song: theunfetteredpreacher

No this is not about the Song of Solomon.

It’s not really even a song. It is a lament, a cry, a stirring of the soul.

A dirge.

Sorrowful, yet empty,

painful, yet pure.

A groaning, that cannot be uttered.

A desire that cannot be fulfilled.

A wound, that will not heal.

Dissatisfied, disappointed, disturbed, destroyed…. decimated.

Hope Lost, and Hopeless.

Yet; Understanding that, in Truth, I am:

FORGIVEN, I AM, BLAMELESS, MY SIN AND SHAME, IS AS FAR AWAY, AS THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST.

I AM COVERED BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, I AM SAVED BY THE GREAT I AM.

The word of God, brings hope, that isn’t seen, causes faith to grow, opens the eyes of our understanding.

If Abram, at 75, began, his walk before the Lord, and became a friend of God.

If Moses, at 80, met the Trinity, walked in the ways of the Lord, and talked to the Lord, face to face like a man to a friend.

If Enoch, at 65, walked with God for 300 years, and was not, because God took him.

It is possible that Bill, at 64, in time, may be noticed and useful to God.

It is possible, a life has not been wasted.

The last, will be better then the first.

The future much brighter, than the past.

The Mountain, removed and the path made straight.

The Gospel of the Lord proclaimed, the lost, saved, the sick healed, the brokenhearted, comforted.

The Glory of our King Revealed.

My cry?

Come, Lord Jesus, Come.
