These thoughts, as always, are written in self-controlled sober instruction :)

It would be easier to explain abuse when it is physical; one need only show their bruised body and beaten face for evidence. However, it is most challenging to deal with the trauma of fraudulent and divisive phycological manipulators and cult-like thought controllers, for they cause many anxieties, sleepless nights, loss of appetite, and the struggle to regain one's mind, hope, and confidence. They will turn our loved ones against us in bitter hate. They will embolden delinquencies for their purpose. The accusers slander our integrity, bearing false witness with nefarious charges flooded with baseless narratives. We seek answers as to why such wolves in sheep's clothing continue to find pleasure in creating chaos and devouring souls. They use and abuse people for their selfish gain through deceit, gossip, and malicious words, causing the separation of marriages, families, churches, and friendships. These spiritual orcs belong to their father, the Devil, who are murderers and liars; they do nothing but break in and steal. Those since devoured remain subordinate to their overlords and are empty shells operating at the forceful commands of the sinister agenda; isolated and withdrawn of mind, they do their taskmasters' bidding. The victims are left broken and confused by the attack, seeking justice; we find peace in prayer for God's providence. And through Christ, we persevere and heal, growing stronger, united, and networking humbled with wisdom.

Dear friends,

Learn about Diotrephes (3rd John 9-10).
Learn about divisive brethren (Rom. 16:17-18).
Learn about the Pharisees (Mt. 23).
Learn about the corrupt (Titus 1:10-11).
Learn about the Devil (1 Pt. 5:8).
Learn about evil workers (Phil. 3:2).
Learn about the masquerade (2 Cor. 11:13-15).

Learn how they all operate through the same pattern, identify them, pluck them out, and avoid them at all costs; give them no ear or platform, for they always have an answer and will always make you out to be the "bad guy.”

Learn who these evil workers are, or you'll be next to face deep and weeping sorrow. There is a strong reason as to why the Holy Spirit wrote information on these types of slithering snakes.

Your servant,
SM

"Cleansing the Temple"
"Water Baptism, Saves?"

In 1 Peter 3:21, we see the explicit inspired words of Peter the Apostle of Jesus the Christ. Was he teaching the Christians of the 1st Century that they were saved by "water?" What exactly did Peter mean within the context? This and more we explore in this exclusive LOCALS podcast session.

POLL question: "was Peter the Apostle married?"

Rescued - Transferred - Redeemed
The Kingdom of His beloved Son

You've fallen asleep comfy in your bed, and a fire started in your house. You wake to panic as you become aware of your surroundings, trapped by a wall of lavalike heat. You find yourself in danger, where smoke and flames threaten your life. Your neighbors were capable of seeing the threat and had since called for help. The firefighters arrive on the scene and immediately find you in your bedroom--time for a rescue. Are you yet seen in a location of satety? No, not yet. There still needs to be a transfer from the site of dakness, smoke, and fire to an area of light, fresh air, and safety. And so the firefighters guide you out of certain death into a secure location. You have now been saved, not without damage, trauma, and loss. But you've gained your life and get to learn fowared another day.

You've become idle in your sinful behavior and practices. You wake to panic as you become aware of your eternal punishment. A neighbor cares for you enough to share Jesus with you. Will you obey the gospel?

The reception of forgivness was the desired result of all who willfully gave their lives to Christ, submissive to His spiritual operation (Col. 2:11-12). Paul, the apostle, speaking to his brethren in Colossae, was accurate in reminding them of their reconciliation. And how the Word of God they had chosen to hear produced fruit for the Kingdom. The Kingdom was God's preplanned location where all found within would have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

A domain needs a King, Christ Jesus. A Kingdom has boundaries, borders, law and order, and justice. This Kingdom is of a peculiar kind, and we should all seek first legal citizenry (Mt. 6:33). His Kingdom is the body, the church (Col. 2:1,18,24). The body for it has organic members all united for the purposed function--the church fo its assembly, it's family. The way in? Being a repentant believer confessing Christ, immersed into water calling on His name, in order to receive the forgiveness of your sins, being added to His Kingdom, local assembly (i.e. "rescued, transferred, redeemed"). 

This good news of Jesus Christ "was proclaimed in all creation" to give humankind a way out of the flames and sinful consequences. And we are wise to hear its call.

Is your house on fire?

Ref. Colossians 2:13-24

Your servant,
