Wondering? bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

Will Jesus Heal You? bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

There are so many sick and hurting Believers. How and Why is this possible?

It tickles me to realize how we pick and choose what to believe. “You Must Be Born Again.” (John 3:3-7; 1 Peter 1:23) We have whole denominations built on these Words. We claim that if people do not use the Words, Born Again, they are not believers.

The Truth is, we must Confess and Believe Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord. That is what causes us to be Born Again, not declaring the Words.

Folks, Catholics recite the same Apostles creed as the rest of us. Have they added to the Word? Unfortunately yes, does it cancel out their Salvation? NO!

Believe and Confess the only requirement for Salvation. Praying to Saints or Mary? Nope, shouldn’t happen, but the Lord is bigger than we are.

I bring this up because as believers we fail to believe all the Words of the Lord. I see a weak and sickly church. A Church of unbelieving believers. Why do we cling to being born again but not to, John 14:11-14.

Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”

Will Jesus heal?

‘And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.’ Matthew 4:24

‘But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;’ Matthew 12:15

‘And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.’ Mark 6:56

‘Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.’ Luke 4:40

‘And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; Luke 6:17

‘And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.’ Luke 6:19

Here are 6 Scriptures that tell us He heals all that are in need. So why are so many sick?

Our Faith is lacking: We don’t know, speak, sing, and live the word. We need to walk with and in the Spirit. Memorize, Meditate, Communicate the Word and Will of the Lord. Until we become more like Him, our Faith and the health of ourselves and those we love will suffer.

Renew your minds, fill them with the Truth of God’s Word.

We wait for light: bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

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.(Isaiah 59:9)

When Judgement is delayed or rejected, darkness increases.

If we allow the miss deeds of the politically connected to stand, we lose more of ourselves. Our freedoms, our righteousness, our ability to defend our way of life.

When we watched past administrations, apologise, ask forgiveness, bow down to anyone other than God, we slid a little lower on the path to perdition.

Darkness is conquering the light, because the right will not defend themselves. We are afraid of being called heartless, cruel, homophobic, racist etc…

We are not! We must stand for and in the light. We must be sure to promote justice for all, not just the few. No one should be above the law. Democrat or Republican.

Laws are made by Congress, the Courts should follow the Constitution to uphold who and what we are.

Legal Votes should all be counted. Others, thrown out!

Gods Words: bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

1 Peter 4:7-11

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

Use hospitality one to another without grudging.

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 4:7-11

The end of everything is near.

The End Times: Deuteronomy 29:29

Therefore, practice self-control,

Fruit of the Spirit:

(Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.)

Proverbs 6:16-19

There are six things which Yahweh hates; yes, seven which are an abomination to him:

haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,

a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are swift in running to mischief,

a false witness who utters lies, and he who sows discord among brothers.

and keep your minds clear so that you can pray.

(Philippians 4:6-9

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.)

Above all, love each other warmly, because love covers many sins.

Food Service: chicken

Welcome each other as guests without complaining.

Entertaining angels:
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Hebrews 13:2

Each of you as a good manager must use the gift that God has given you to serve others.

Ministry Gifts: Romans 12; Ephesians 4; Spiritual Gifts. 1 Corinthians 12-14

Whoever speaks must speak God’s words.

Speak God’s Words- know, not telephone book, dictionary, within.

Whoever serves must serve with the strength God supplies so that in every way God receives glory through Yeshua Christ.

Serve with Power – God shines through

Glory and power belong to Yeshua Christ forever and ever! Amen.
Revelations 5:13

And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

12:11
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

We must know the Lord have His word within if we desire to do His will.

The Sad Truth:  bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

I was tuning a very nice woman’s piano today and conversing about the Word of God.   I had opined how we do not have the reverence of the Word that they did in the Old Testament.

The woman pointed out how lucky we are to have the Word available to us whenever we desire to read it.  She is both right and wrong.

In Nehemiah, someone had to read the Word to the people and there were others to help them to understand.  Today we can read it ourselves and read a commentary if we have questions.

Sounds good, right?

It isn’t.  The Word is no longer precious or rare, now it is ignored or used as a telephone book.  (Which we no longer use either).

What good is having the Word, if it is not giving life to those who have it?  How many are studying to show themselves approved?

They would sing scripture all day, we want more verses, never mind what the Word says.  We know better.  It saddens me to see how little the Word affects today’s Christians.

If we disagree, we throw it away.  Again We Know Best!  Lord help us, please.  May the Word come alive in our hearts and minds.  May it changes us, into Your Image.

Our Perspective: bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

On God:
He won’t send anyone to Hell, Jesus is just alright, we are ok in His sight.

On Sin:
God only cares about the big ones:
Murder, rape, fraud, bodily harm… Victimless crimes are not sin.

Truth:
God is a Holy God and demands a Holy People.   God sits on His Throne and does as He pleases. (Ps 115)

As slaves to Sin-  before Salvation, we live in Sin
As Christians:  We pass through the Wilderness of Sin.  (Exodus 16)

How long will you stay in this Wilderness?  It is our choice.
What is Sin in this Wilderness?
Murmuring and complaints.  The Start of our trouble.
Disobedience:  It’s the Simple Things, the Evil Heart of Unbelief.
We must walk in Faith, Thanksgiving, and Praise, to become victorious.

If we do not follow the simple, we will never do the great.  If He cannot trust us to follow, He may not bother to lead us, He can leave us feeding the swine.
,
We must give ourselves totally to Him.  Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength.   Then we will be ready to serve.

The Mystery Behind the Mask: bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

The Mystery Behind the Mask: bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

I know I am terrible person, but, just seeing the top of the nose, the eyes and eyebrows, somehow causes me to wonder about the rest of the face.

I picture them in my mind, everyone is perfect. A great mouth and chin, a wonderful smile that matches the sparkle of their eyes, and laughter that comes from deep within.

Then my mental picture is shattered.

I see their picture ID. Can this be the person I am speaking with? Apparently yes. Oh well, life is full of surprises.

I said I was terrible.

I Have Tasted Freedom:  bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

I have Tasted Freedom.  I Have been to America; BC, (before COVID)

IT WAS GRAND!

I had two doctors’ appointments late on Tuesday afternoon.  We went to town early to catch lunch at one of our favorite eateries.

We arrived, put on our masks for the dangerous walk into the restaurant and to our table, and in fear and trembling entered the door.

There were eight to ten woman in hospital scrubs, laughing, joking, and leaving to go back to work.  Not a Mask among them.

We looked;  none of the wait staff, cooks, busboys, nobody had on a mask.  Only two masks were visible.  Mine and Bettes.

We looked at each other, pulled of the masks, and with huge smiles found our table and understanding the waitress, enjoyed our food, and our day.

I will not say where this was.  the Mask Nazis would shut it down in a minute.  How have we allowed this to happen to this once great country?

Please vote!  I pray for you to vote with knowledge and wisdom.  I believe in the system.  I have a problem with all the changes this year.  It seems to be a clear call for fraud.

Vote in person!  Have an ID with you!  Be on the Lookout for those who would cheat!

Where Do You Live? bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

There are 3 stages of the Christian life. The first is the realm of the World.

We all start out as Slaves to Sin: The Devil is the Prince and Ruler of this World, he has us under his control. We do not recognize sin, for what it is, and refuse to accept the Love of God in our lives.

After we have been touched by the Holy Spirit and begin to follow and love God we first must enter the Wilderness of sin.

This is a different place than beig a Slave to Sin. Now our Sin becomes a choice. We choose to murmur and complain, instead of praise and thanksgiving. Rebellion instead of Complacent.

This is the Wilderness of Sin. We have experienced the Majestic Power of God, He has Forgiven us, healed us, set us free from the Power of the Evil One, and we choose to complain and blame the Lord that our lives are not perfect.

It is our choice to stay in or leave this Wilderness. It is our Free Will, that controls our attitude and our actions.

We can read about the Wilderness of Sin in Exodus, 15-16. It is a Wilderness with borders, we need to cross into the Promise. More on this theme coming.

Graditude; an Attitude: bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

Graditude; an Attetude: bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

Our new Pastor, Donald Thompson, today started a new series about Gratitude, starting with Exodus 17.

The Hebrew was in the desert and in need of water, Moses was to strike the rock and water flowed. He emphasized how the Lord had been supplying their needs, yet they complained.

It was a good message, but I was captivated by the first verse in Exodus Chapter 17:

“And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the LORD, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink.”

Like the Christian of today, the Hebrews had to journey from the Wilderness of Sin. Yet as we read further there remained Sin Within, and that is our ongoing problem in the Church.

We fail to leave the Sin behind, we all have a sin that so easily besets us. (Hebrews 12:1) We keep that sin, feed that sin, enjoy that sin, hate it, but cannot release that sin It has a hold on our lives.

So, should we ignor it? Enjoy it? Embrace it? NO!!!

We must learn to fast and pray, trust, and relie on the Lord to give us the strength and the ability to overcome it. (James 4:7; 1 John 5:4,5; Matthew 17:21)

We must not only leave the wilderness of Sin but the Sin itself if we are to become all that the Lord would have us to be. Will we all conquer this sin?

I believe that the Apostle Paul fought sin in his life faithfully, I know he overcame it in the end, but lord what a struggle. He is an example to us all. Fight the good fight. (2 Timothy 4:7)

Hast thou not known, hast thou not heard? theunfetteredpreacher

Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard?

1 Corinthians 15: 34

“Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.”

Isaiah 40: 28-31

Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

It is a wonderful thing, to learn to wait on the Lord. As a new Christian, I struggled with finding my place in the Kingdom, I had gotten the Holy Ghost goosebumps and electric shock when these Christians said, ‘God Bless You.’ to me.

I was blessing everyone I met the first few months of my salvation. I was the God Bless You, guy. The people/of the world had quite a laugh. I was just full of Joy and the Holy Spirit. Yet I was ineffective at bringing folks to the good news.

So we learn the Roman Rd and other plans to lead people/to/Christ. (All pretty useless).

No, we learn to share the Lord by spending time waiting on the Lord, sitting at the feet of Jesus, learning of Him, and then sharing Him, not just the Scriptures. The woman at the well, the Legion, both just shared what Jesus did for them. they didn’t have Scriptures, just personal knowledge.

It is a shame that He is not proclaimed. Has He not impacted your life? If He has, share.

Is this political? bill theunfetteredpreacher cote

I am continually dumbfounded. People are demanding that we humor their delusions. They are men, claiming to be women.

We are expected to validate their foolishness, they are not men or women, but one of the other 159 genders they claim.

We are allowing the leftest cities and states to destroy their public and private buildings and properties. It is ok, that they attack law-abiding citizens, block highways, injure police, and anyone else they desire.

We allow them to hold up the reopening of their states, the economy, the right to go to church, eat out, gather together unless it is to demonstrate against the current administration.

Saints, we need to stand behind President Trump, the rule of Law, and common sense. We must stand fast, against the lefts run for Socialism. The American way of life is on the auction block, and we could easily lose it.

Where do you stand? Will you fight for truth justice and the American way. I certainly hope so.
