The Short of it: theunfetteredpreacher

The Short of it:

The long of it is that all I seem to do is sleep

Tests on going to see if something is wrong, or I am just incredibly lazy.

The short of it is, I read the Word, and nothing speaks to me. So I have nothing to share. Please keep me in prayer.

Thanks for visiting

God is light: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

I used to live by a body of water that ran east to west.   It was the boat launch,  in Morehead City,  NC.  I would go there to pray,   I was there many early mornings or at dusk.

I began to recognize the line of light or darkness move across the water.   Gradually lighter or darker but progrssive lines of demarcation.  As I looked up you could see it in the clouds also.

image

I mention this because the light or darkness within us is just as visible.   People can see whether we walk in the light. For example,  the world without Christ.

Isaiah 59:8-10
King James Version (KJV)
The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.  Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.  We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.”

Most of the world is in that condition. There is no Judgement for their sin,  they do not travel on a straight path, there is no truth in them. They know no peace,  they don’t believe there is any. 

Their ways are desolate,  they are DEAD MEN WALKING. . .

This is not The Lords plan.  He would have all come to the light,  He sent His Son,  not to condemn the world,  but that through Him the world  might be saved.  Those who have paid attention and opened their hearts have recognized and excepted the light.

Isaiah 9:2
King James Version (KJV)
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

Isaiah 2:5
O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.

Those who find the light,  are blessed beyond measure.  We all walked in darkness but now in the light.   Let your light so shine,  that God is Glorified,  Exalted,  Lifted Up,  Praised.

Our lives should draw others to the Lord.  If we walk in the light,  we will.

Psalm 89:15
Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.

Jesus,  the LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

image

Ephesians 5:8
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Thank You Lord,   may Your light shine through me.

There is hope, in the Lord. Don’t give up.

                         Don’t give up hope, 
                            we can survive.  
                           Gods on our side.
                         MERRY  CHRISTMAS

They Flock to the fields: The Fix-it Shop – Filling Station

Do you ever wonder why the birds seem attracted to certain fields and not others?

image

Have you noticed people seem to gather at certain churches and not others?

image

     What does one have that the other lacks?
                
The amount of available food, determines the size of the gathering.  We need to be able to multiply our loaves and fishes.  We must feed the flock.

What about that guy? – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Lord, what shall this man do?”

The universal problem with people.  What about that guy?  He isn’t following the same  rules I do.  Why is He doing so well, have so much?  Why does everyone love Him?

Waa, waa, waa….

Envy, covetousness, greed, dissention,  back biting, bitterness, sloth, lying. …ect.

The human condition.  DISSATISFACTION, WANT, JEALOUSY.

“Billism” Truth or Fiction – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

What is a “Billism”?

Simply put a “Billism” is a truth I have found in the Word, that I personally have not heard anyone else teach.  

Does that mean no one else has seen it? 

No, many have probably seen these and not found them important enough to share or have shared them and gotten the Ho Hum responce I receive, and quit mentioning them.

To me, they are a revelation of the Lord, They do not effect  basic Christian Doctrine but do draw me in to a fresh knowledge of the Lord.  They cause me to study the scriptures to see if they are true.

I don’t share them unless I believe I have Biblical evidence to support them. 

What disapoints me is so many could care less, or reject it out of hand, because they were never taught it.  Do they check out the scripture to see if it’s true?

Nope, Nada, Not going to happen,  God didn’t show them, so it cannot be truth.

I wish they would think about how many Denominations there are and maybe see why they were founded.  Not all church splits are about the color of the carpets. 

Luther was a good Catholic, till he discovered salvation by faith alone.    We need to study the word and recognize what it really means, not just what you have been taught it means.

Please open your eyes and ears, listen to what the Lord is saying today.

Is the Holy Spirit? – 7 – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Is the Holy Spirit :
*  Guiding you?
*  Directing you?
*  Walking with you?
How can you tell?  Do you recognize His voice?
Abram was told by  the  Lord to: “Walk before me and be ye perfect.”

Moses: “Walked in the Ways of The Lord.
David:  ” walked before me.”

image

We have quite a bit of information of Davids walk:

” David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments:”

“the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left.”

” if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, ”

” the Lord was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the first ways of his father David, ”

” he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the ways of David his father, and declined neither to the right hand, nor to the left.”

David was a man after Gods own heart, yet he walked before, or in uprightness and integrity of heart to do all The Lord commanded.

We have a different calling:

” walk in the steps of  faith, walk in newness of life, Walk in the Spirit, walk in love, Walk in wisdom, walk in the light, walk in truth.

This is our New Testament  calling.  We are no longer walking before or in the ways of.

image

We are now called to:

Matthew 11:28-30
King James Version (KJV)
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Have you learned to walk in His yoke?  That means to walk with Him like Enoch,  Noah,  Levi…not before, in the ways of, but beside, in harmony with, in rest.

In the peace that passes understanding, in joy unspeakable and full of glory.  In the Power of the Holy Spirit, healing all that are afflicted.  Causing the blind to see, the lame to walk, the deaf to hear.

Comforting the brokenhearted.

Lord help us to walk with You,  to hear and understand Your direction.

He hath shewed thee, O man, – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

what is good;

image

Genesis 27:28
King James Version (KJV)
“Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven,  the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine:”

” they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.”
“no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.”
“It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High:”
“Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.”
“Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, ”
“acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.”
“For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; ”
“Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good. For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat.”

“what doth the Lord require of thee, ”

image

“surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.”
“what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,”

but to do justly,

image

“Execute true judgment, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother:”
“Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”
” the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.”
” It is joy to the just to do judgment:”

and to love mercy,

image

“will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.”

and to walk humbly with thy God?

image

” remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.”
” that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;”
” If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
” Because thine heart was tender, and thou didst humble thyself before God, when thou heardest his words against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, and humbledst thyself before me, and didst rend thy clothes, and weep before me; I have even heard thee also, saith the Lord.”
” he shall save the humble person.”
” he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.”
” Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:”
” Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.”
” honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.”
” I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”
” Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
” he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.”
” God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.”
” Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:”

Micah 6:8
King James Version (KJV)
“He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?”

For where two or three are gathered together in my name,

Matthew 18:20
King James Version (KJV)
“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

Do we really understand the power we have as Christians if we are truly together?  Spiritually together,  of one mind and heart in agreement.   Jesus,  God Himself is in our midst.

If God be for us, who can be against?

I bring this up because of a wonderful picture of this Scripture I found at: 
http://whiskedawaykenya.com

This young lady has a vidio of three Kenyon men, steeling a meal from between 6 and 15 Lions.
Without using their weapons.   We need to be watchful of lions.

1 Peter 5:8
King James Version (KJV)
 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

The Lord warns us that the devil is likened to a roaring lion…..seeking those he can devour.
He comes to kill, steel and destroy.  It seems impossible that we could steel from him.  These men from Kenya show us how it is done.

Ecclesiastes 4:12
King James Version (KJV)
“And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

One can prevail, ( to defeat an opponent especially in a long or difficult contest).

Two shall withstand,  ( : to not be harmed or affected by (something)
: to deal with (something, such as an attack or criticism) successfully).

Threefold cord not easily broken, ( violently separated into parts : shattered).

These three men walking in a line, scare off a pack of lions, walk up to the kill and cut off meat for their own use.  Walk away unmolested.   Wow. Well worth a visit and watch.

The point is as Christians,  alone we can prevail but it is a hard fight.  Two more easily withstands the attack, without much damage, three together is not easily defeated.  There is strength in the body of believers.

When the church was in one accord,  it was added to daily.  The Spirit of the Lord was present,  there was power, fear of the Lord. Miracles, signs and wonders.  The church needs this above all else.

I think we need to come together in one accord….heart, soul, mind and strength. ….bow down before the Lord and live out the Lords prayer,  not just repeat it.   Learn to Worship the King in Spirit and truth.

Lord help us to understand and welcome Your presence in our lives and church.
