“WHICH ONE IS HE?”
As I have roamed this “world” and cleaned people’s homes this “season” the Lord through His Holy Spirit laid a question upon my heart. Cleaning homes (and being out in the world!) I am exposed to all kinds of décor this time of the year. Wiping and blowing dust off of several “nativity” scenes (that by the way are not set up according to scripture) I looked at them and this question was laid upon me: WHICH STATUE IS JESUS? There are portrayals of serious ones~ cutesy ones~ impy looking ones~ hipster ones~ Precious Moment versions…on and on and on! If this truly is ALL about Jesus The Son Of God why so many portrayals? I will tell you why. Because we do not know what Jesus looked like~ we worship Him the way we want~and MOSTLY because HE IS TAKEN EVER SO LIGHTLY ￼ 😢
Scripture IS truth! As Christians-BIBLE BELIEVING- we are to search God’s Written Word~like The Bereans~to see if something we are told or see is truth. God’s Truth. Scripture tells us how to worship Him the way God instructs us to in one verse:
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
IT’S THAT SIMPLE! We are not to worship Him with images. That is a commandment. I know it can be difficult to shake all the images we have been shown our entire life’s of a “Jesus” . But with God and for God ALL things are possible!
I do not believe God made us “VISUAL” people when it comes to worshipping Him. If He did why would He have said that we are to worship Him in SPIRIT and in TRUTH? Trick of the devil. Aaron thought when he built the golden calf that he was using it to worship God. That didn’t go over to well did it?
I was a HUGE celebrator of this manmade tradition! Believe me! Now that I have had the religious veil removed I have been blessed to have had my eyes opened to many non-truths. This “celebration/tradition” and the “spirit” behind it being one. Believe me it was SHOCKING! But again it has been another choice I have had to make: God’s way? Man’s way? You know my choice.
I pray that you too will seek His truth. As a Born Again believer I celebrate Him everyday. I am not telling you not to celebrate. I am asking you WITH LOVE to seek God’s Truth. His truth will set you free! There is a “bondage” that comes with this celebration that the TRUE spirit of The Lord does not put upon us! He keeps us filled with the joy of our Redeemer-our Saviour-JESUS THE CHRIST- GOD’S ONLY BEGOTTEN SON-through His Holy Spirit year round-unlike the crash and burn effect that can happen to most after the celebration is over-and the “spirit of Christmas” has left us. (I remember that empty feeling.) It’s not about us and what we want…IT IS ABOUT GOD AND WHAT HE WANTS.
Shared with the ABSOLUTE love of God’s Truth that sets us free! ￼❤️❤️❤️
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Not On My Own Volition — Ramblings of a Wonky Girl
Thank you Jesus. Not on my own volition, I saw my mother today. Last Thursday, she once again tried to take her own life. I don’t venture far from home by myself. I never know when vertigo will rear its ugly head. Today I did. My husband offered to drive me. My destination was about…

I wanted to share a comment from the comment section of a post I had shared called Roman Catholicism vs. Biblical Teaching. I share this with the love of God’s truth-how Jackie felt is the path I was starting to take…BUT GOD! I, too, believed I was a Christian while practicing and trying to do everything the religion (not The Good Lord) required of me and said I needed to do.
My prayer is that if anyone reads this that practices this religion that they will see we do have a Way out-His name is Jesus-He has done AND finished everything we need to be saved-GUARANTEED! There is NOTHING you can do to save yourself ❤ There is nothing your “church” can do for you ❤ There is nothing your “Mary” can do for you ❤ There is nothing your “communion” can do for you ❤
❤ REST IN JESUS ❤

It’s true…as a former Catholic, I always considered myself a Christian…even when I was living a very sinful life (You don’t know what you don’t know). Catholics believe they are part of the one true church…started by Jesus. They believe if they follow the Catholic Church teachings, that’s the best they can hope for. They will never be good enough so they have to go to mass, receive communion, go to confession, keep the Holy day’s, keep the sabbath (but they changed that to Sunday so they really aren’t keeping anything…just more of their man-made traditions), and follow the 10 Commandments (they don’t even know and haven’t been taught about the other 600+ laws in the Old Testament!) so they can hope for Purgatory…where they will then “pay” for their sins in order to be worthy to go to heaven (someday). The problem is they aren’t aware that to break 1 law is to break them all…no one sin is greater or worse than another. ALL sin deserves God’s wrath and punishment. That is why it had to be the spotless lamb…the Son of God…He’s the only one who can take away the sin of the world. They have been deceived. If I hadn’t walked away from the Catholic Church years ago I probably wouldn’t ever have gotten to the point where I cried out to God and He granted me salvation! If I had kept going through the motions, trying to be good enough, I’d still be there. I got tired of trying and decided: you only live once; I might as well enjoy it. What a sinful twist my life took…but for the grace of God. I was in such darkness before He saved me!

❤ PLEASE~ PLEASE~ PLEASE SEEK GOD~ NOT A RELIGIOUS SYSTEM ~FOR HIS CONCRETE TRUTH FOR ALL OF US ❤
The first thing we did before sitting in a pew-before mass started was genuflect and make the sign of the cross to a crucified Jesus… I am sharing this-with love- in hopes some one that is practicing feels the conviction of God’s Holy Spirit over them!
❤ GOD LOVES YOU AND WANTS YOU TO KNOW HIS TRUTH AND BE SET FREE FROM THE BONDAGE OF THIS RELIGIOUS PRACTICE THAT IS NOT BIBLICAL ❤
“Many modern-day Bible believing Christians are unwilling to confront the issues of the idolatrous practices of the Roman Catholic church. FTA: Many Protestant ministers will readily speak out against Islam and Mormonism, but are strangely silent when it comes to exposing the false doctrines of Catholicism.”
*Do not use the liberty obtained through Jesus to do what ever you please~to feed the flesh worldly lusts~Brethren, use this new found liberty from the Lord to LOVE without restraint! For glorifying God our Father for showing us we no longer need to be entangled in the yoke of bondage! GOD IS SOOOOO VERY GOOD TO US IF EVERYONE COULD JUST SEE THAT! He is NOT our enemy-no-He is our Living, Loving God that gave His Only Begotten Son to take the wrath that we deserved while we were yet sinners! How much more loving can one get?
HALLELUJAH! ❤ ❤ ❤
Jesus frees us from the BONDAGE of a religious practice!!!
Several months ago, I wrote a post about one of my memories of growing up within Catholicism. When I was in grammar school, the nuns would periodically go to the blackboard and draw a three-legged stool as a symbol of the Catholic church. The idea was that the church was extremely well-supported by its three […]
