Aside

Romans 7:18-20

18I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh; for I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19For I do not do the good I want to do. Instead, I keep on doing the evil I do not want to do. 20And if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

 

This is so me ūüė¶ Lord help me fight my sins.

A struggle with Sin

It’s a Promise!

(Tagline: Making & Breaking Vows, esspecially in this season.)

 

People make a lot of promises. Politicians are infamous for making them, & specifically BREAKING them. New Year resolutions are another Infamous example of the making (And Breaking) of Promises. And sadly, people usually break their promises. It’s like you can’t trust Anyone to keep their word!

Ecclesiastes 5:5

5Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.

 

The Bible gives us some pretty clear teachings. BTW, deliberately breaking a vow is the same as Lying. You can’t promise somebody something and expect not to follow through. It’s an obvious lie, with obvious consequences too.

 

We need to Do God’s will for us lives. And that include keeping our promises!

Matthew 21:28-32

28But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. 29He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. 30And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. 31Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. 32For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.

God takes vows seriously, you cannot make a vow and break it without facing consequences. You will reap what you sow. (see Galatians 6:7) You should not foolishly make vows, always expect to follow through. Make sure you understand what you’re saying.

 

Judges 12:30-40

30 And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the Lord, and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands,

31¬†Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the Lord‘s, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering.

32 So Jephthah passed over unto the children of Ammon to fight against them; and the Lord delivered them into his hands.

33 And he smote them from Aroer, even till thou come to Minnith, even twenty cities, and unto the plain of the vineyards, with a very great slaughter. Thus the children of Ammon were subdued before the children of Israel.

34 And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances: and she was his only child; beside her he had neither son nor daughter.

35 And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have opened my mouth unto the Lord, and I cannot go back.

36 And she said unto him, My father, if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the Lord, do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth; forasmuch as the Lord hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies, even of the children of Ammon.

37 And she said unto her father, Let this thing be done for me: let me alone two months, that I may go up and down upon the mountains, and bewail my virginity, I and my fellows.

38 And he said, Go. And he sent her away for two months: and she went with her companions, and bewailed her virginity upon the mountains.

39 And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man. And it was a custom in Israel,

40 That the daughters of Israel went yearly to lament the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite four days in a year.

The sad thing is that he didn’t need to make the vow in the first place. God was already going to give them the victory. But for some reason, Jephthah felt that he needed the vow. And a sad result came of it.

 

Please think what you do before you act, I’ll repeat the first Bible verse that I’ve shown.

 

Ecclesiastes 5:2-6

2Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few. 3For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.

4When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. 5Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. 6Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?

Happy New Year!

Where is LEGO Worlds?

A little news update on LEGO worlds. Seems we got a (partial) date for release now!

LEGO Universe News!

It’s been a while since we (LUN) have talked about LEGO worlds, and those of you with good memories would also remember that LEGO worlds was hoped to be launched in early 2016 (We are now ending 2016, it is almost past us.)

LEGO worlds was a game that, in concept, is very similar to what LU was going to be originally. And is certainly similar to a game named Minecraft.

(Please see previous Blog posts for more info. Search LEGO Worlds)

So, Where in the world is LEGO Worlds?  Good question :P.


  Well, Here’s their answer. . .

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

‚ÄúThe original plan was to finish the ‚Äúv1‚ÄĚ by mid 2016. However, the experience we have had, has been so overwhelmingly positive that we have decided to continue through to 2017. No firm date just yet, but we‚Äôll share‚Ķ

Which Spirit of Christmas?

It’s Christmas time again. Which Spirit of Christmas are you for?
And how do you spread the Truth of Christ?

A Blog by NENEN

Did you read the title? I Hope so, in case you didn’t I’ll ask again.

Which Spirit of Christmas?

Have you guys heard about the woman¬†who complained about the ‚Äėholiday-themed‚Äô starbucks¬†coffee cups? how¬†it¬†killed her ‚ÄúChristmas Spirit‚ÄĚ?
People seem to be really. . . Confused about what Christmas is, & what is part of the Christmas Spirit.

Let’s start with the simple facts. Everyone here knows the word Christmas.(Even if you just learned about it by reading this post!) Notice the First part.

Christ. What did you just learn? Obviously the meaning of this particular holiday is connected with Christianity! Now the second part.

Mas. this is a Shortened version of the word Mass, as in the Catholic Mass. (Another way of saying Church Service, A mass of people gathered together to worship Christ!)
Of Course the word Mass isn’t stuck with Catholicism and I am not about to speak on the errors…

Filthy Tongues

I really don’t like Filthy (Vulger) language. Profanity is so wrong, and for a long time I didn’t even know why. Or even if the Holy Bible really said anything about it. Now, thanks to God’s Holy Word and the Church I go to, I have those answers.

 

It annoys me to no end to find Writers, Movie makers, and Game Developers using Profanity in their respective medias. When without it, I would be alright with their Product! Even some Christians use it in their things and daily conversations!

 

So, like I said, there used to be a time when I didn’t know the answers. And once I had attempted to explain why Profanity (Or whatever you want to call it) was bad, but without Bible knowledge I was forced to use my own wits. And of course I failed miserably. My ‘opponent’ deflected all my arguements, and when I said that I (vaguelly) remember that the Bible said it was wrong somwhere, He simply asked, “Where?”

But I didn’t know.

I’ve learned that lesson. Never try to fight on your own strength, Always Lean On God’s Holy Word.

 

Colossians 3:8-9 tells us,

  But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

   Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

Pretty obvious isn’t it? (And pretty thorough too.)

What about Ephesians 4:29? (also see verses 30-31)

Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

Now an important point is that these holy scriptures aren’t just talking about “profanity”. We need to control everything which comes out of our mouths. And those two verses cover a lot of territory. James also talks about the Tongue in a well known scripture.

James 3:2-10 (see whole chapter)

For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

¬†¬†Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.

   Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.

   Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

  And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

   For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:

   But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

   Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.

   Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

______________

Also Jesus mentioned that what comes out of our mouths (our hearts) defile the person.

Some ‘profanity’ even gets a special title, BLASPHEMY. (see Colossians 3:8 again.)

Exodus 20:7

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

 

These Holy Bible verses give us a complete picture. Profanity is wrong, And Blasphemy is worse. Sadly, people don’t think so. Some use God’s name in vain as a ‘clean’ kind of profanity. Which is so Wrong!

If you’re a Christian, Don’t use that stuff. We don’t need it! Actually any possible reason to do it can either be fixed in a much better way or is wrong by principle. I would also like to add that the so-called ‘mild’ language isn’t actually better. All of it is actually another version of the same thing. Don’t have a Filthy Tongue.

 

If you got any questions, (Or comments ūüėõ ) Feel free to give them below!

NENEN’s Moments:

I would like to share two (maybe three) different moments.

My First is a LEGO Island 2 moment.

A long time ago, when I was around 8, my father told me that he…

Never Give Up

” Never give in, never give in, never, never, never,

never–in nothing, great or small, large or petty–

never give in except to convictions of honor and

good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the

apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

Winston Churchill

¬†¬†¬†¬† You know, I have felt pretty bad. Depressed is the word I used. Sometimes all the bad things in life just come crashing down. And it feels like everything’s out of control. That nobody cares. People I know die, and some people just curse their name. Parents act stupid and don’t pay attention to what’s really going on. The list goes on and on.

You Feel All Alone. . .

¬†¬†¬†¬† Depression is a large problem. There are Millions of people to who get thoughts of suicide. It seems like a way out of their problem. The many hundred other ways are Drugs, Alcohol, Smoking, Eating, etc. Some call the problem Anxiety, others call it a ‘Mental Disorder’.

What’s the Cure for this Problem? How do you stop the destruction it is causing in our lives? In mine, and all the others?

¬†¬†¬†¬† Psychologists don’t help. Besides the fact that the Medical industry is corrupt as anything else. Their problem is that they basically believe that we’re a bunch of automatons programmed by our genes and environment. They prescribe the falsely called “anti-depressants.” Which actually make you not care about anything, or anyone. And if you Stop taking it, Everything gets Multiplied! (You’ll go through the worst depression you ever had, as part of the withdrawal symptoms.)

What we feel and think is not a really a medical problem. Although you can eat things that help, take things that seem to. The problem is more spiritual.

1 Peter 5:8 (KJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† God does things with a Purpose in mind. sometimes Good people suffer for reasons we can’t see. (Just check out Job in the Bible.) Other times we go through things because of our sins. We should always be humble before God. He does allow us to ask Him questions (to question God.) But we should realize that we are sinners, and we do need to repent when we sin.

Sometimes depression comes out of our sin. In those cases We Need To Repent. Sometimes it comes out of our situations, Lean On God! Cast Your Cares On Him!

¬†¬†¬†¬† My pastor once lived through a very traumatic time. His Daughter had just died, and His wife was on her deathbed.¬†He was angry at God for letting this happen. God wanted him to go be a missionary to West¬†Pakistan,¬†my pastor¬†didn’t want to. When he came home, he threw his Bible across the room. He yelled and Cursed God. And in the end he lay down in his bed crying. A Bible verse his Grandmother in Christ had told him over & over again came to mind. “if you repent, He is faithful & just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us of all unrighteousness.”

Again and again he heard it, Finally he got on his knees. He asked for God’s forgiveness, crying the whole time, and he noticed the time. He went back to the hospital, and then saw the doctor running towards him. Bracing himself for the news my pastor wasn’t expecting what came next. The Doctor said that at a certain time my pastor’s wife had miraculously gotten a whole lot better And was going to live! (It was the same time my Pastor repented)

He now uses this experience as an example of how things can go when you disobey God.

1 Peter 5:7 (KJV) Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

The Devil, our enemy, Likes to use our situations to tear us down. He brings up our sins, The problems around us, Anything he can use to take us down so we can’t defeat him. And if he can take us out of our right mind, He wins.

_______________________________________

¬†So Job was a righteous man, He feared God and eschewed (avoided) evil. One day Satan came to a meeting of angels with God. “And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” Job 1:7

Then God asked Satan if he had checked out Job, “… that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?” Job 1:8

“Then Satan answered the Lord and said, doth Job fear God for nought?” Job 1:9 and started to say how God is protecting Job, and blessing his every work. (A spiritual Hedge or Wall protected him and everything he had, the reward of Job’s obedience to God)

“… but put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.” Job 1:11

“And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.” Job 1:12

     And Satan took everything Job had away in One Day; his 7,000 Sheep, his 3,000 Camels, his 5,000 Yoke of Oxen (A yoke is Two Oxen), 500 female Donkeys, and even worse, his Sons and Daughters were killed when the house they were in collapsed.

“Then Job arose, and rent his mantle and shaved his head, and fell down on the ground, and worshiped, and said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.

In all this Job sinneth not, nor charged God foolishly.” Job 1:20-22

Round One: Satan 0, God & Job 1. Satan had thought he could get Job to sin. God’s test for Job and his challange to Satan worked, like God knew it would. Next time the angels came to present themselves to God, Satan was back. After God asked where Satan had come from, He asked again if Satan had considered Job. “…and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movest me against him, to destroy him without cause.” Job 2:3

Satan replied, “… Skin for skin, yes, all that a man hath will he give for his life. But put forth tine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.” Job 2:4-5

“And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.” Job 2:6

“So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.” Job 2:7

And Job, covered in painful seeping sores from head to toe, took a shard of a pot and used it to scrape himself as a way to find relief while he sat in ashes.

“Then his wife said unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? Curse God, and die.” Job 2:9

“But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.” Job 2:10

Three of Job’s friends came; Eliphaz, Bildad, & Zophar. They had come together to comfort him.

Round Two: Satan 0, God & Job 2.

So, seven days later, Job started to cry out about his problems. Basically complaining, and often asking God questions. He was very depressed.

His friends ruin their own plan to comfort him, and instead make things worse. Saying that Bad guys always get punished and Good guys always get rewards. So it was probebly some hidden sin in Job’s life. (as well his Children) And Job would continue his complaint, as well as his defense.

Then in Chapter 38, God joins the conversation. He doesn’t answer Job’s questions, instead He asks a lot of rhetorical questions like ‘Where were you when I created everything?” or “Can you control everything animals do, or the Mighty beasts like the Behemoth and Leviathan?” All these questions show that there really is nobody like God, who controls and upholds everything.

“Then Job answered the Lord, and said, I know that thou canst do everything, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. . . Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.” Job 42:1,6

Then God told Job’s friends that they had displeased God. And they should take 7 bullocks and 7 rams, and go to Job and offer a Burned sacrifice to God (with Job’s help), and that Job shall pray for them “… lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.” Job 42:8

“… the Lord also accepted Job. And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.” Job 42:10

So in the End, Job got twice as much as he had before. And he had more sons and daughters.

Final Results: Satan 0, God & Job 3.

_______________________________________

Two stories, Two Perspectives.

In One, the depression is caused by disobedience to God. And is fixed by repentence (Confessing the Sin, Asking for Forgiveness, and Turning around and Obeying God.)

In the Second, the depression is caused by things out of control. What isn’t our fault at all, It may even be Because We Did The Right Thing! Here you need to endure to the End. God’s allowing you to go through Hardship as a test. Many real people in the Bible have suffered with the result of glorifying God.

 

The Apostle Paul (a human being like you and me) once wrote

“Who shall seperate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Romans 8:35-36

And now my favorite part.

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39

What’s an Elephant again?

(Sequel to What’s an Elephant?) Alt title: Who is God again?

I wrote a post a while ago titled ” What’s an Elephant? “. In it I related the Fallacy of The Elephant and The Blind Men, a story where some blind men are trying to describe an elephant it instead they each touch one part of the elephant and relate it to each other saying that what they touched is what the elephant is like.

God’s Not an Elephant. Nor is He Deaf, Blind, or Dumb.

Proverbs 15:3 – The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
Isaiah 40:28 – Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, [that] the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? [there is] no searching of his understanding.
Jeremiah 23:24 – Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.

_____________

¬†¬†¬†¬† The basic problem with the story is it ignores the Fact that God wants us to know who He is. The elephant probably couldn’t care any less, and I would imagine was annoyed (think about blind men touching You all over.) God isn’t sitting somewhere in the heavens ignoring the small planet we call earth. And if He did how would we ever learn anything more than that He created?

So, God Wants Us to Know Him.

2 Peter 3:9 – The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

The Bible is His Word. The Bible is what He says about things, Including how to get to Him. To know God, know His Word. That’s why people attack it so much! They want to say that what it says doesn’t make sense. They say that ‘God’s Word is full of fables and stories that may have some truth or not’. Athiests attack the scientific and historic side of things, Religious scoffers attack the spiritual side.

God isn’t Passively Doing Nothing, His Word Speaks to our Hearts. His Prophets Speak with His Authority. He is Calling for Us to Come Learn Who He is, And To Act On That Knowledge.

Psalm 121:4 – Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

Isaiah 55:11 – So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

     Want to Know God? Study the Word of God! He reveals Himself. No need for philosopizing. For asking those who have no real knowledge.

Here is something that Once happened to me.

A long time ago, I was playing one of those browser-based strategy games (Goodgame Empire) when Someone I never met just suddenly sent a PM to me, telling me how he had been looking for God but never found Him. Now at the time I was not really ready for that kind of discussion at All, but I did ask a good question. “Did you ever read the Bible?” To my surprise he said “No”. After a few back and forth messages, he finally said he was putting me on his ignore list (even though he started the conversation)

__________________________

How Do You Expect to Ever Learn About God, To Find God, If You Never Read the Bible?

The Bible Tells Me That If You Actually Look For God, You’ll Find Him.

Jeremiah 29:13 – And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

2 Timothy 2:15 – Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth

What about all the other stories, fables, or parables? Like the many paths to the top of Mount Fuji? The many spokes on a wheel leading to one place? Are they at all valid? Why is the Bible right, and everybody else wrong? Is it some kind of Blind Faith, or is there some way of knowing things to be true?

God’s word has been proven Again and Again, there used to be a time when people scoffed that the world ever had a beginning. Same with a lot of other Biblical truths. The History has been proven again and again with archeological finds. Science actually makes more sense from a Biblical perspective.

John 3:12 – If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

2 Timothy 3:16 – All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Acts 14:17  РNevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.

God knows we will have doubts, He knows that the Devil is going to be fighting to make sure that we never learn about Jesus, God, & Salvation. That’s why we have that witness. There are a lot of resources availiable to us.

Here are some Good places to Look:

Check out Lee Strobel’s Books: The Case for a Creator ; The Case for Faith ; & The Case for Christ. (& others)

Also Check out the Institute for Creation Research’s website and various Books, DVDs, Online Videos, etc. Start checking out the Scientific truth of the Bible at ICR.org.
(Check out their Free Publications! http://www.icr.org/icr-magazines)

Ultimately You’re going to have to read The Bible. I personally use the King James Version (and New King James Version) because I trust those versions the most.

Some people have made Versions of the Bible that Remove words and sometimes even ENTIRE Bible verses! Others Replace them with other words that Don’t mean the same thing at all. (example: removing the word Virgin, and replacing with Young Woman) If they remove the words Blood & Virgin. Then you know that you cannot trust those. (Look out for those, Most Bibles are probably fine. So look out!)

There’s a very well known Bible verse, some have called it the Gospel (Good News) in a Nutshell, I think I’ll end this post with it. Along with the next verse, I think it gives a good view of Who God Is.

John 3:16-17

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

 

ALSO SEE IF THESE BIBLE VERSES WORK!

You beleive there isone God, you do well … (james 2:19)

I am the LORD there is No Other … (Isiaih 45:5-6)

There is One God and One Mediator between Gd & man….. (1 timothy 2:5)
