Whose Ballpark Are We In_____

WD1Sports Equipment on WhiteWD1


 Below is a message that is a warning confirmed by God’s Truth, it is my own personal experience with Atheists, Cults, Wolves and False teachers. We need to recognise those who are in the wrong Ballpark but it is not what I share  that will make a difference and for some it will make a big difference because they will let it, it’s God’s Truth, His Light in the darkness. WD1

But He does not force us, our hearts need to be  open and  willing to listen to Him in all things, so if  you find this message too long with all the Scripture included, please ignore my words and hold onto Gods, read them and let Him talk to your heart. He gives understanding of His Truth and man’s errors in Scripture, as He empowers us through The Holy Spirit and as we obey His guidelines and ask and receive,  we will be all He has chosen us to be.WD12Timothy 3: 3- 17 (16-17) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man/woman of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

 Titus 2:13-15 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ Who gave himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all Authority. Let no man despise thee.WD1Ball in FieldBeing in the wrong Ballpark…..WD1 Thank you God that you have forgiven me of my sins and thank you that you are going  to forgive me again when I sin tomorrow.WD1 God tells us to not to say we will go on sinning but to reckon ourselves dead to sin and to know in our hearts Jesus has set us free so we can, No Temptation will be greater than we can bear.WD1Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. WD1

John 8:34-36 Jesus replied,” I tell you the Truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if The Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
WD1Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation—but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. or if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons/daughters of God.WD1

 1 John 3: 1-12 ( 9) No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God. WD1

Philippians 3:13-15 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.WD1

 Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

Game of LifeWD1

 We are going to look closer now at some more of those who are in the wrong Ballpark or way out of left field, vainly punching the air, will they be saved before it’s Too Late, only God knows if they are His but we continue to pray and share about Him with them as there is opportunity but this does not mean we accept the wrong they say and do…..WD1

 2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His.WD1

 A few helpful tips about Scripture …First we can’t understand it without God’s wisdom,  and as we are empowered by The Holy Spirit,  Jesus our Teacher leads us into all understanding.WD1

 Proverbs 4:7  Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.WD1

 James 1:5-6  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.WD1

 Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops (KJV)

Bible CrossWD1

 It also helps when reading Scripture to understand some of the basics, like there were no small particles used in the early Greek such as a, is, it, he, she, etc and it was all written as we now call it, in Upper case and so were parts of the Old Testament.WD1

 Also the same word may have  different meanings depending what the context is, as examples… to fear God, can mean Respect Him or it can mean to have fleshy fear of Him. As Christians we do not need to fear God, we Love and respect Him, yes if we walk in the flesh we will fear Him until we come to heart repentance and put our flesh to death, we cannot Love or Trust and we will not obey someone we fear in the flesh.WD1This is the same as the word  fool, which can be referring to foolish thoughts and actions or to someone’s Eternal Destiny. We may call someone a fool, Paul did because their words and actions warrant it but there is difference when we claim they are one Eternally, meaning they are going to hell, we are to Love our enemies and pray for them and yes also warn them in Love and for Love, but will they listen before it’s Too Late? only God knows if they are His.

WD1An Atheist claims God does not exist, God calls Him a fool meaning Eternally but only He knows their heart we don’t, we must never judge a persons Eternal Destiny, they may repent on their deathbed from good seeds that were planted, some who call themselves Atheists are deceived like I was for nearly 30 years. WD1Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.WD1

1Corinthians 2:14  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.WD1Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.WD1

 In my Ministries, I have had Cult members and those deceived by their teaching, tell me that God does evil to bring good out of it but the Scriptures tell us this is slander, they also said,  He willingly causes us to suffer  to teach us, but the Scriptures tell us differently…..WD1

 Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men. WD1

 They said  without any compassion that my 7 Children who died at birth or before, are all in Hell, the opposite is confirmed in Scripture, others claimed I was a tool of Satan and that I  blasphemed The Holy Spirit and also that I’m going to hell,  why because I shared  Scriptures and God’s Truth but they didn’t agree with them and yet didn’t offer any of their own confirmation in the Scriptures of what they believed that showed I was in error. WD1

 Unless they come to heart repentance and turn away from false teaching and heresy and from slandering those in The Body of Christ, they will be judged for their unloving words and actions,  I pray they will repent before it’s Too Late, but only God knows if they are His….. WD1

 We have no doubts with Atheists, where they are at when they share what they really believe or even those who call themselves Agnostics or a fence sitter because we either believe in God in our heart and what He tells us in Scripture or we don’t, there is no middle ground, God does not have to prove Himself,  He can be seen clearly in Creation and so no one will have an excuse. To say they haven’t made up their minds, shows they have but what is even sadder and I was one of them in the past, is those who claim they know God but follow the world’s agenda, hopefully they will come to their senses, I did and so this is what I  pray for them too.WD1

 Romans 1:19-21 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of Him from the Creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His Eternal Power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.WD1

 Atheists mostly don’t hide that they reject God’s Sovereignty or Authority in their lives and it is shown in their words and actions, they agree and promote what God calls evil and also reject what He calls good, they Trust in their own fleshy wisdom based on the worlds agenda.WD1

 Isaiah 5:20-21 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!WD1

 Having also been an Atheist for many years at least in my head but not in my heart or I would not be a Christian now, I was in this deep darkness because of being deceived by Evolution teaching at School, so yes I know the deception that they propagate. But beware they can put on a disguise when needed and even call themselves Christians, to teach Satan’s lies that confuse those who do believe in God but do not know His Truth, they are the wolves,  we are to test the spirit of those who seek to teach us.WD1

 1John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.WD1

 Some Christians are just deceived by their Teaching and so share it with others, they are not the wolves, meaning Satan’s workers.  Cult members can be deceived too by those who are in  Authority over them.

 Wolf in Sheeps clothingWD1Atheists are the wolves and they teach heresy, which are lies not confirmed by Scripture but we do need to be careful what we call heresy or who we call false teaches and wolves , just because a Truth it is not known by many today, if it was taught in the early Church as confirmed by Scripture in the right context, it’s God’s Truth and He tells us we will we know this, so we don’t have to fear deception. WD1

 1 Corinthians 2: 9-16 (12-13) Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth but which the Holy Ghost teacheth, comparing spiritual things with Spiritual.WD1

 The Holy Spirit will not say one thing to one person and something different to another when they contradict but  He may reveal something new that we can share with others or they with us but all God’s Truth will be confirmed in Scripture in context, so we take time to read the Scriptures in context but the problem is that some read it in the flesh not through The Spirit, so it’s still foolishness to them. WD1

 1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are Spiritually discerned.

Prayer & JesusWD1

Jesus Christ is  the Head of the Church and always has been and always will be, we worship and serve only Him in the fullness of The Godhead , not any man or woman, past or present, although we may respect them as great followers of Christ, who have shown great faith like we do with John, Paul, Mary and other Men and Woman of God over the centuries or in their position in the Church which is always under Christ’s Authority  but we do not pray to them or worship them, we are not even to do this with Angels and there is no Scripture that confirms that we are to do so, it tells us differently…..WD1Colossians 1:15 -17 And He is the Head of the body, the Church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell;WD1Ephesians 5:23-24 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the Head of the Church: and He is the Saviour of the Body. Therefore as the Church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.WD1Luke 4:8-9 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.WD1Jesus’ is our only Intercessor and His divine Truth will be kept pure, it is Eternal. Scripture confirms Scripture, this is a how we can know if something has been added or deleted from the original Scriptures and if it was meant to deceive and not just man’s error, they will be held accountable for their deception and they will reap the havoc they sow, if there has been no repentance.WD1Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the Holy City, and from the things which are written in this book.WD1 But how do we recognise  Cults, when they say they believe in God…..WD1
John 4: 1-3  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of Antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.WD1
Colossians 2:8-10 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power.

 There are a few ways that we can recognize Cults as shown below but the most noticeable is  they do not believe in The Godhead or Trinity as They are called today, they don’t call Jesus Christ, who is The Living Word, their “LORD”,  meaning One with The Father and The Holy Spirit, they don’t recognise His Divinity in the Godhead and that He came in The Flesh, they can’t because they don’t have the Holy Spirit,  He will confirm this Truth to us in our hearts and by Scripture as shown below. WD1

 1Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is The LORD, but by the Holy Ghost.WD1Matthew 1:22-23  Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a Virgin shall be with Child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His Name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.WD1

 John 1:1-3  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the Light of men. And the Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.WD1

 Genesis 1:26 – 27  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.WD1

 Colossians 1:15 -17 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by Him were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. WD1

 1 John 5: 7 For there are three that bear record in Heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these Three are One.WD1

Revelation 1:7-8 Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.WD1

 Revelation 19:15-16 And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written,  KING OF Kings and LORD OF Lords.WD1

 Isaiah 9:6-7  For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the Government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His Government and Peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His Kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.WD1

Isaiah 54 :5 For thy Maker is thine Husband; the Lord of hosts is His Name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall He be called.WD1

 Another sign of a Cult, is they add to the Scriptures to deceive and also by their man made rules and regulations , to be saved they believe that you must conform to these, which is what Jesus warned against, it’s Legalism. WD1

 1Timothy 4:1-3 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the Truth.WD1

 When we obey God’s Commandments or guidelines we do so willingly because we are Saved not so we will  be Saved, in other words we show we are Saved because we obey them and not because we have to but because we want to and we can obey them as we choose to, by the empowering of The Holy Spirit, No Temptation will be greater then we can bear. WD1

 1Corinthians 10:13-14 There hath no Temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the Temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.WD1

 2 Peter 2: 9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of Temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:WD1

 1 John 5:18-20  We know that no one who is Born of God sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.   We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.WD1

 1 John 3: 1-12 ( 6-7 ) Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.WD1baseball with wingsWD1It’s not about forcing the flesh to obey but choosing to walk in The Spirit as  He empowers us and in so doing we are putting our flesh to death. Paul Battled with his flesh as we see in Romans 7 but in Romans 8 and other Scriptures he showed us how to have the victory so it is not in control. In Christ Jesus we are not only Human, we have The Holy Spirit indwelling us, so we are more than Human .WD1

Galatians 5:16-17  This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.WD1

Galatians 24 -26 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.WD1

 Romans 8:12 – 15 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.   For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.  For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.WD1

 Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.WD1

 Romans 8:1-4 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.WD1

 We are under God’s grace till we are perfected in Love and we no longer walk in darkness, He knows that we will be. Jesus is our Advocate, but if we do sin this shows we are still in darkness and not washed just covered by His blood. Heart Repentance, which means choosing to turn away from evil and seeking to do good by the empowering of The Holy Spirit, means we are being washed clean  but if we say we have not sinned so we don’t need  Salvation, we are calling Him a liar. WD1

 1John 1:5-7 This then is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the Truth: 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.WD1

God knows those who are His and not one of us will be lost or He would not of chosen us to be conformed into the image of Jesus who is the image of Him. WD1

 Romans 8:29 For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.WD1

 Colossians 1:15 -17 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature.WD1

Devine GiftWD1Salvation in Jesus Christ is a free gift based on Faith and  Faith has actions or works that show it is real but these are God’s works which are based in Love, He has prepared these and equipped us in advance to do them, they are not man’s fleshy works based on his own rules, regulations and agenda. WD1
 2Timothy 2:19-21 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, let every one that nameth the Name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the Master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.WD1

Cults have condemned others who do not agree with their false teaching and obey their man made rules and regulations, they have bitterness and resentment towards them, wishing them harm and seeking fleshy revenge, ostracising and refusing to fellowship with them but not for Love so they will come to their senses and repent but legalistically rejecting and black listing them. WD1

Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.WD1

 This happened to our Sister in Law when she became a Christian, her family wouldn’t  have anything to do with her, it breaks her heart that those she Loves greatly and always has, reject her but God keeps her strong.WD1

1John 4:1-3 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every Spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already
is it in the world.WD1

We remember always that it is not God’s will that anyone perishes, meaning to be Eternally separated from Him and so we need to seek to witness and warn those who are lost in their confusion and denial but will they listen and repent before it’s Too Late, only God knows if they are His. He tells us not to be friends with the world, meaning we are not to accept the wrong they do and say or do we propagate it, we are to always be in His  Ballpark.WD1baseball with wings
WD1And as His much Loved Children who He has known from Eternity would come to heart repentance  and accept His free gift of Salvation in Christ Jesus, we will be sure we are in His Family, through The Holy Spirit’s confirmation! Yes we can see Him working in our lives as we are conformed into the image of Jesus and we walk as He walked  in Love, Holiness  and Truth.WD11John 5:2-4 By this we know that we Love the children of God, when we Love God, and keep His Commandments. For this is the Love of God, that we keep His Commandments: and His Commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is Born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.WD1

 1John 3:23-24 And this is His Commandment, That we should believe on the Name of His Son Jesus Christ, and Love one another, as He gave us Commandment. And he that keepeth His Commandments dwelleth in Him, and He in him. And hereby we know that He abideth in us, by the Spirit which He hath given us.WD1

 Matthew 22 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great Commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt Love thy Neighbour as thyself. On these two Commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.WD1

Thank you for Listening may we all be greatly blessed as we seek The Lord  with all our heart.
WD1We will be sharing on our Christmas Blog over the Christmas Season too, we hope you will join us there.  Link…..  http://christmasblessings.wordpress.com/
