The Waste at Noonday

The Rust Oxidation:  We as the people of God allow this to residue to cause us to become so cold to one another not caring how we relate  or  how we cause them to feel or think. Rust is reddish- or yellowish-brown flaky coating of iron oxide that is formed on iron many times to the point that you can peel it away. Could you imagine all that you have learn and know is peeling away because of how we treat one another?  Knowing what we are doing without feelings for the person we are doing it to be not walking in love because of the blessing they are receive. We allow ourselves to become rusted and oxidation state begins to process in our hearts and mind yet loses its moisture and compassion and develops into this rust. Oxidation number, also called Oxidation State, the total number of electrons that an atom either gains or losses in order to form a chemical bond with another atom sharpen without it causes rust. Are you rusted because you have a lack of compassion for your sister or brother? Uncaring not promoting and discouraging.  As with the brothers and sisters in Christ which states that we lost the chemical identification when we allow the oxidation to lose its strength.  Iron sharpen iron if we do not allow each believer to  sharpen each other in the skill  or gift that God has given to us we lose strength. And often become a one man island. The bible tells us my people parish for lack of knowledge. We become rusted and lose the power that is given to us as our gift weakens because we are so into self-promotion instead of edifying and lifting and encouraging one another up. We will rush and be duel and cannot be good for nothing. He who would restrain also restrains the wind if we cannot lift and encourage one another into their destiny. Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. He who tends the fig tree will eat its fruit, and he who cares for his master will be honored. Proverbs 27:17says, "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another." When iron blades are rubbed together, each becomes sharper and thus more effective. However we cannot sharpen ourselves it is impossible to do because to have to rub together to be sharp. Likewise, when believers are involved in one another's lives, mutual edification occurs. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 is a similar passage: "Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken." Humans were created for fellowship Genesis 2:18. When we're living in healthy fellowship, we rely on one another and help one another. It is often thought that the threefold cord of Ecclesiastes 4:12 refers to two people in relationship who are submitted to God. It is true that fellowship is beneficial for humans in general, but all the more so for Christians Matthew 18:19-20.The New Testament is replete with instructions concerning how believers should relate with one another. They are to do good to each other Galatians 6:10, bear each other's burdens Galatians 6:2, forgive each other Colossians 3:13, restore each other Galatians 6:1  James 5:19-20, submit to one another Ephesians 5:21, encourage each other (1 Thessalonians 5:11), admonish and exhort each other Colossians 3:16Hebrews 3:13 pursue peace and mutual up-building Romans 14:19, and stir one another on to love and good deeds Hebrews 10:24-25. The Body of Christ – believers – should be encouraging and edifying one another. When they do, they are like iron sharpening iron. Each believer becomes more effective in his calling. However what I come to find out in the building that we worship God in Spirit and in truth. That we tear down talk about ridicule a person disrespect and those that God called out put in place to be lifted up. Are now rusted in their gift because of jealousy and envy. Man and women of God trying to destroy what God has join together. Men and women who snare the gifted to the point they have become rushed in their gift unsupported and when call to represent they  can’t because of the negative vibes that surround them in their own church home that God has called them there to help. Do you not know a prophet is never honor in their own house? Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholds thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considers not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. This is the very person that knows God and it is clear that God sent this person to that edifies. But because of people who are jealousy of the person desires for them to become ineffectiveness in their marriage in their church home and ministry. People who will try to betrayal and destroy one person because God has chosen them.  Now because of the nay Sayers jealousy up rise in the church over this one person they become ineffective and the church goes downhill because the Pastors have too many so called Prophets talking in his ear. Now he is confuse in hearing God voice speak and the people in his congregation. Now there is a tremendous need and ineffectiveness in faith and belief in God in the people of God who now live in poverty and remain in this ungodly condition because of a stony heart and hatred for God’s chosen anointed and prophet. Ephesians 2:10. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Crock of Clay

The Crock of Clay. Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it." (Jeremiah 18:3-4) I understand what it takes to make something out of virtually nothing and how important it is for the potter to control the clay and not the other way around. Having my Bachelor’s in Theology the study of God it is no reasoning in me that there is a God that directs us and we are just mere Clay. I want to talk to you about the difference between being the potter, the one who makes and forms the clay, and being the clay, that which is molded by the hands of someone else. For whichever one you decide to be in your Christian life will determine whether you will be submissive to God and do whatever He wants you to or be stubborn and go your own way and do your own thing. Clay is only a fine-grained, firm earthy material that is plastic when wet and hardens when heated, consisting primarily of hydrated silicates of aluminum and widely used in making bricks, tiles, and pottery. A hardening or no hardening material having a consistency similar to clay and used for modeling. Clay is a fine-grained natural rock or soil material that combines one or more clay minerals with traces of metal oxides and organic matter. Clays are plastic due to their water content and become hard, brittle and non–plastic upon drying or firing. Well clay needs coloring when it is spindle around a wheel it looks like nothing. Just mud that rubs off and away from the place in question.  What is amazing is that God will put us back on that spindle and mush us up again shaking us up once more starting over, molding us making us. The place in questions could be sin so God often will form us from the living waters of the Word of God. By definition, clay is nothing more than any earth that forms a paste with water and hardens when heated or dried. Since we were made from the dust of the ground I don't think that anyone would argue the point that we are the clay. (Genesis 2:7) And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.  God is the potter we are clay. The definition of off is something that is no longer attached, no longer in operation or no longer happening. So as to be removed from the spindle there needs to be separated from the thing that it is attach to. It is from cloth or dyed leather making of earthenware pot, jar, or other containers. Once made then God puts all kinds of gifts into this jar. However because we are made in sin and shape in iniquities God puts pressure and friction to our lives that we made be good for the masters use. After time letting it slowly cook in my cracked theological crock pot. Once God allow the heat you let slowly cook in your cracked crock pot to mead any cracks holes or dents. What I come to find out is that people need high heat and some need low. Many of us just need to slowly simmer. We are all crock pot of fragile clay. A jar of clay God is working in. There's not room in this clay jar for both God and someone else's. There is only enough room for healing crack pots. God cleans polishers us up so that we can be use by Him. He will send people to manipulate us we must stand on the Word of God. Saying all manner of evil about us. Even when the application of pressure and friction with many trails and tribulation. God will apply a rubbing lotion on His hands then he will give us beauty for our ashes. There are time we are just like fabric and we tear easily. Other times we need to be shaped again.  Gods desire to get us out of the place of comfort to the place of destiny. Weaving us shaping us together forming us into the image of the only begotten Son. Depending on the content of the soil, clay can appear in various colors, from white to dull gray or brown to a deep orange-red. Clays are distinguished from other fine-grained soils by differences in size and mineralogy. Just like there can many servants but only one master there can also be many lumps of clay but only one potter to mold them.

Barter of Vision

The Barter of Vision God has a great plan, a vision. And that vision includes you. Yes, it does, or you would not be here. You are special. You are different from anyone else. The great Creator God personally designed and made you that way. Therefore, you have a contribution to offer that no one else can make.  God had to trade goods or services without the exchange of money to him it was sending His Son in to a world exchange it from sin to enteral life with Him. Barter is a system of exchange by which goods or services are directly exchanged for other goods or services without using a medium of exchange, such as money. You have value and are not inferior to anyone. Different. Yes, wonderfully different. Remember, you are God's idea; and He never makes a mistake. You were not made to be exactly like any other person. But each of us was made for a purpose. God had a vision about you and has a vision for you. If you don't know God's present and ultimate vision for you personally, right now, let me share it with you. "And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams" (Acts:2:17).The apostle Paul summarizes God's will and vision for all humanity in a nutshell: ". . . God our Savior . . . desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth" 1 Timothy: 2:3-4God, through His Son Jesus Christ, reveals the knowledge of truth Paul is referring to: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved" (John: 3:16-17that is God's vision prepared and outlined for mankind, including you. It is the offering of, and the way to, eternal life in the kingdom of God: "That whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life" (John: 3:15). "They will come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and sit down in the kingdom of God" (Luke: 13:29). Jesus exchange his life on earth for sin. This was the vision of God before the fall of man. It was in the plan when Adam and Eve sin then once throw out of the Garden of Eden the vision was clear that man is fallible only God could come down to exchange what was fallible because God himself was infallible. o. He created the heavens and earth and man all that is in it. All of creation is accountable to Him. Every created thing lives and breathes and has its existence because of the creative and sustaining presence of God. Sinful man answers to God; not the other way around. What we could not do for ourselves, God stepped in and did for us. We are spiritually dead in the eyes of God and remain so until we receive spiritual regeneration through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. We remain spiritually dead until we are born again. John Calvin wrote: "The only haven of safety is in the mercy of God, as manifested in Christ, in whom every part of our salvation is complete. As all mankind are, in the sight of God, lost sinners, we hold that Christ is their only righteousness, since, by His obedience, He has wiped off our transgressions, by His sacrifice appeased the divine anger, by His blood washed away our stains, by His cross borne our curse, and by His death made satisfaction for us. We maintain that in this way man is reconciled in Christ to God the Father, by no merit of his own, by no value of works, but by gratuitous mercy." God is responsible for our eternal salvation, "namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation" (2 Corinthians 5:19). God caused a double transfer to be made. Our sins were imputed to Christ, and His perfect righteousness is imputed to us. He bore our sins; we are clothed in His righteousness. All of our sins were placed on Christ. He was punished for our sins. All our guilt was placed on Him and He died in our place. Christ's righteousness was imputed to us, the believing sinners in order that we might be accepted by Him. God acquits the guilty sinner who believes in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ for his sins. It is distinguishable from gift which is enteral life. God reconciled sinful man to Himself by making His sinless Son the sin bearer and dying in the sinner's place. Jesus Christ paid the death penalty for the sinner so that God could set the sinner free and declare him righteous in His holy presence. Moreover, He did more than just forgive us our sins; He imputed the perfect righteousness of His Son to us. A great exchange took place. Christ got all our sin and guilt; we got His perfect righteousness standing before God. His righteousness was exchanged for our sin. The economies in many ways had to change to an economy of life more abundantly from poverty and the earth as it was in lack and infected with diseases and plagues. God desire is to rid man from these things by His reciprocal exchange  which is immediate and not delayed in time. For one day to God is a thousand years and a thousand years is yet a day. It is usually bilateral, but may be multilateral (i.e., mediated through barter organizations) and usually exists parallel to monetary systems in most developed countries, though to a very limited extent. Barter usually replaces money as the method of exchange in times of monetary crisis, such as when the currency may be either unstable. Therefore which was once unstable man living in sin is now stable by bilateral use from the reciprocal exchange. Therefore money is not sin but to not have it is sin. Because Gods desire and purpose is in the bible for us to use as given example of his elect being able to be lenders and not borrowers. Yes we shall have the poor with us always however we as the Elect of God. Should know enough to sustain our families and help those in need.  What a good Christian Barter is are like poems to make you believe in difficult time God has made us more than conquerors we cannot be defeated. Utterly it is a natural act because of the Word of God instill innate in us before the foundation of the world. Many times we can recall things in the bible that we never look at that is because we are the call according to His purpose. There are just some things in us that has already been there even before we were born.  We are a nation without excuse.  utterly natural act.  The apostle Paul told us how God did it. "He [God] made Him [Jesus Christ] who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him" (2 Corinthians 5:21). The foundation for everything in our Christian life is based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and the imputation of the perfect righteousness of Christ to the believing sinner.
