You Have ONE Teacher and ONE Lord, Ruler of Life
No pastor, no priest, or “Bible teacher” is your Teacher of Biblical things. Only One can tell you the complete right Way and give you total understanding about things of God, Heaven and You.
Plus it is not good that we put this pressure on preachers, pastors… It’s not good for you and it’s not good for their sake. They may try to live up to your expectation and fall into the trap of trying to take the place of Jesus. And we are certainly not to let man take God’s place.
Only Jesus is your Teacher through the Word and through direct communication! You need no other!
Look there are many excellent pastors and preachers out there. Many are doing a great job and are building the Kingdom excellently. But there is a certain dynamic whereas we tend to put leaders in the position of Jesus.
And sometimes leaders get confused and they inadvertently take the place of Jesus as Lord. And then you have entire religions, denominational systems that looks to have their system, their doctrine in place of the Lord Jesus. This is not good, Not good at all.
Jesus is your Lord how? If you made Jesus your Lord, which is essential to eternal life in Heaven, then you are to follow your Ruler’s, your Master’s every commands. He has commanded in the Bible already and what He gives us commands and instruction in real-time. Think about that! These two core primary concepts of eternal life don’t seem to get talked about a whole lot these days, at least from what I have been seeing here in the USA.
We are responsible for obeying all the commands in the New Testament of Jesus and Jesus commands as spoken through the apostles (which are Jesus commands reworded or expounded upon).
Yes we are also responsible for dying to ourselves, losing our lives in this world for Jesus, getting rid of our pursuit in this world, getting rid of a self-controlled life, stop living for the happiness of the flesh and hand our lives over completely to the Lord, where Jesus directs EVERYTHING. So therefore we hear his voice, and do His commands in real time and all the time.
I am here to share the Word of God with you through the Word of God, in the Word of God. I am not here to tell you what you think are how do you should think. Only your Teacher, Jesus can do that. I am here to share, express what comes out of me after my experiences, and my experience reading the Word, at the moment in volume overtime. Volume?
Oh yes. The foundation of what we do here is based on getting to know the Bible as you would get to know a person very well. Knowledge and understanding as revealed by the Lord, through our pursuit of Him. One great way have founds is to read the Bible over and over i.e. 5 times a year or the new 12 times a year New Testament Plan (for the purpose of learning the Commands of Jesus throughout the New Testament well).
The Bible never gets boring or old. The Bible is like it’s new every time I read. The Lord peels back a layer of understanding in connection each time and it’s genuinely exciting. Soon, for you too, Bible reading in volume Will be one of the most enjoyable things you do. You’ll actually be excited to get to spend time with the Word of God. You may not believe me now about that but you’ll see after you get started on one of the volume Bible reading plans to the Volume Bible Reading System. See BibleReadingSystem.com
We need to escape the multitudinous, complex traps of the world design too hook onto us and pull us down all the way to the pit (like crabs in a boiling pot of water, as they say…). The sad thing is that you or I can’t even tell we are being sucked in unless the Light of the Lord shines in on us and reveals the truth. What does that mean? That means when you are in the Word of God in volume, the Lord will expose all bad things and show you the good and right way so you don’t get sucked back into the world. Many of you will be shocked when you started the volume Bible reading plan and see how far you have drifted into the world and sin, not even realizing before.
Well here’s a little brief on part of my story:
Rebel with a Cause!
I remember hearing one of the biggest cons, scams of my life many years ago when a certain “spiritual authority” told me that I wasn’t supposed to read or interpret the Bible on my own.
Fortunately I “rebelled” to read the Bible. Through reading the Bible starting on page one, the Lord led me to Himself, led me to cry out to Him for help. And help me He did! I soon after believed and became born again. (And the truth was exposed to me in the mean time about institutionalized hellish soul trap religions to me and how that works in the mean time as well.) And I give thanks and praise to God forever because of His help!
More on my story later. The Word of God saves. Jesus is the Word of God – Jesus Saves!
Well we have work to do. Lots of good, most enjoyable, eternally essential and eternally rewarding work. No matter what your denominational religion says, you and I must pursue God, pursue Him hard. Some may want to consider the phrase “pursue God aggressively” although the word aggressive sound strange to use, but it can be helpful considering all of the nonstop tricks, tracks and distractions that pull us away from the Lord and make us unfruitful. We must bear fruit!
Let’s get this done. I hope you understand that most all of us have been programmed by the world and the ruler of this world (do you know who is the ruler of this world until Jesus returns? His name starts with an L or S otherwise known as the D. Yes you better understand this. Otherwise your much more easily conned by highly potent deceptions.)
We need to “uninstall” this deadly programming of the enemy through the world and its systems and “install”, the Word of God, making the Word of God our reality and our habit. Denominations these days, many have gone way off course by ignoring the Lordship of Jesus in that we have to and are commanded to OBEY Jesus.
For more understanding of how severely important it is to actually make Jesus our LORD, our “Ruler of Life”, where as we live for Him and no longer ourselves go look up “Howard Pittman” on YouTube and watch his various videos. Here is his website howardpittman.org Click on the videos link there too.
Matthew 28:19-20 19 Therefore, go and make people from all nations into talmidim, immersing them into the reality of the Father, the Son and the Ruach HaKodesh, 20 and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember! I will be with you always, yes, even until the end of the age.” – CJB
“19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” NKJ
Why do most of us rarely hear or consider Jesus own words to obey Him? We seem to get told and taught a partial message. Others get confused over “works salvation” misconceptions mistakenly calling obeying Jesus commands of the New Testament the same thing as a legalistic Old Testament and man made rule following (which has it’s intent to push away God personally and rely on an easier “system” of rules).
Mistakes, mistakes mistakes! There are too many mistakes out there. There is so much misunderstanding of the Word of God! Why?
- People, many denominations, religions, pastors and related do not KNOW the Word they know ABOUT the Word.
- They confuse self direction vs God direction.
- They keep trying to take the role of Christ with institutionalized religion unintentionally or intentionally.
“9 Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10 And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.11 But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.12 And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” – Matthew 23:9 NKJV (you can see biblehub.com and click on the Interlinear Bible to see the original Greek on this too!)
Here is what I want to help you do, at least one of the things: I want to help you turn away from man and turn to God. I want you to make Jesus your Teacher. I want you to turn to Him and as Him your questions! You’ll get much better and correct answers. After all, He is the Author of life!!
You need to turn to the Word, the Bible: Get on our volume Bible reading plans to read the Bible 3 times or 5 times a year using our Bible Reading System 2.0. How are you going to do the Word and obey it if you don’t know and understand it!!
So from now on YOU get your answers directly from your Teacher Jesus, Personally through directly asking Him and through Him in the Word, for remember that Jesus IS the Word of God! (Revelation 19:13)
Also to confirm that Jesus is your Teacher (and not some pastor or other person who claims to be your Bible teacher) see this: “”But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” 1 John 2:27
Well there is plenty more to come. We’re here to help you by feeding you the Word and sharing our experience with, in and through the Lord, in addition to what we are inspired to say in reflection from the Bible.
So hang on. This will be a great journey as you and i, we prepare to be completely ready to meet Jesus, get into Heaven well and hear the words “Well Done My Good and Faithful Servant”…
