Three Rusty Nails

Just three rusty nails were All HE would need,
to finish a House that would last,
The beams of The CROSS, now empty would plead…
my case, at The BAR,…for my past!

This Carpenter, Strong, spent the bulk of HIS Days,
on the Earth in a shop, crafting wood,
But The BEST that HE made for Eternal Display,
took three nails through HIS Body…for good!

How many a-time with three nails in one Hand,
and a hammer in other to blow?
But the rusty three nails through the Hands, Feet, and PLAN,
forged One House of Salvation to KNOW!

Defeat was full bought by one fruit of the the tree,
through the mouth, transforming the heart,
But VICT’RY was wrought in FRUIT, known as HE,
placed back on lone tree,…as Man’s part!

The “bruising of heal” by three nails, closed to seal…
the breach between GOD, and bought-men,
The “crushing of head” by three holes in The REAL,
forever has SAVED some from sin!

The bite of the fruit from one beautiful tree,
brought us death by such “innocent” words,
But three rusty nails, unsightly to see,
brought life through the death of PURE LORD!

Sin brought rust to the nails that might never have been,
for Decay is the lone human craft!
Wooden “homes,” made of men, become shambles in Sin,
Future HELL with the Devil, who laughed!

But The Carpenter’s last task, sealed Sin/Death in the bier,
and then rested until The Third Day,
Sunny morn! Smiling Face! Greeting friends with, “I’m Here!”
Creation, Quite NEW, on Display,
For Carpenter, once dead, Ever LIVES, and it’s Clear,
The SCULPTOR from Rock, forged New DAY!

Justification: “God Makes Right What We made Wrong!”

Humans are so self-centered! We tend to see everything in our lives through the limited perspective of our own minds. If we see ourselves as “pretty good people, not having done all that much that is really wrong,” then we think that GOD ought to be pleased with us!

Well, sorry to offend you, but we ARE really wrong according to GOD’s Standards!

(BTW, when YOU create a temporal Universe, then I suppose YOU can be the Standard. Until that time of Human existence, YOU will just have to live by THE ABSOLUTE STANDARD decreed by The LORD GOD Almighty! ‘Kay? ‘Kay…)

JUSTIFICATION is the legal term connected to Case #0001, still pending in the lives of the many descendants of the original two co-conspirators, a male, known simply as Adam, and his wife, known simply as Eve.

The First Parents of Humankind were remanded to the Witness Stand in the Garden of Eden on the Day that The GOD of Glory appeared for HIS daily conversation with the man, yet the man was AWOL…

Judge: “Adam, YOU have been accused of violating the ONLY Rule of the Garden of Eden (sic. ‘Thou shalt not eat of the fruit
of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. For in the day that you eat of said fruit, YOU will surely die.’)”
Adam: “The woman (that YOU gave me) gave me the fruit, and I DID eat of it.”
Judge: “Eve, is this True? Did you give Adam the fruit to eat?”
Eve: “The serpent tricked me and tempted me! I eat of the fruit and I gave some of it to Adam!”

With GUILT confirmed, JUSTICE is swiftly applied! Satan in the form of the serpent, the Original Convict, was not permitted to speak to The Judge because his just conviction with its applied consequence for the Cosmic Original SIN. The following is the Sentencing Phase of THAT conviction as to the additional consequences of beguiling human co-conspirators.

Judge: “Serpent, because you beguiled the woman, you will now crawl on your belly and eat dust!”
Judge: “Eve, because you listened to the serpent and ate the fruit, you (and your female descendants) will all have painful childbirths and you are now reduced in rank to a lower official status on the chain-of-command!”
Judge: “Adam, because you have listened to Eve, and because you ate of the fruit, YOU will NOW have to WORK for a living, sweating-out some of your very life every day (since over 75% of the human body is water) until your dust is completely severed for THAT living moisture and returned to the ground in death, which is felt spiritually today, and will be felt physically at the end of a long a pain-filled life of constant decline.”
Judge: “Bailiff, escort the convicts out of The Garden, and bar-the-door with Fiery Swords. I have the little issue of making their prison uniforms from dead animal skins.”

Adam and Eve were quite prolific. They had a world full of descendants, most of which were worse than they were by all outward appearances, but one was stellar in character…for he loved GOD with all his heart. That man was Noah!

With Noah, three sons, and the four wives, The LORD started to rebuild the World with HIS chosen people, after the Judgment of The Global Flood. Yet, as The LORD knew that we would, we have once again become as corrupt as the humans of Noah’s Day!

In Conclusion,…
1. Man Sinned against the ONLY GOD, and HE IS HOLY!
2. Man’s SIN was Infinite in Cost and Eternal in Scope!
3. Man could NOT pay for his SIN by his own best efforts!
4. Man’s attempt to pay for his SIN by himself requires Eternity in HELL (because it can NEVER be fully paid by Man.)
5. GOD had the Plan in place to Pay for Man’s SIN before HE ever created the Earth!
6. Jesus, The SON of GOD, willingly chose to Pay the Price for Man’s SIN!
7. Jesus, being GOD, is the Quality of Sacrifice with the Character, Ability, and Rank to Fully Pay the Infinite Cost to the Eternal Scope of Man’s SIN in just a few hours one Friday!
8. Man receives this Gift of Salvation by Believing Jesus and the terms HE has Personally Stated by Life and by Lip, without any attempt on Man’s part to earn any of said Gift!

According to Romans 10:9-13,…

“9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

“10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

“11For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

“12For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

“13For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Anyone who believes this TRUTH in his or her heart by the Work of The Holy Spirit is SAVED eternally, anticipating the glorious privilege of serving Jesus eternally as his or her LORD!

Judge (to such a person): “YOU are Acquitted! YOUR penalty has been PAID-IN-FULL by Jesus, My SON! YOUR Account is NOW Fully Justified!

“YOU are FREE to take your place as my indentured servant Forever…for your Ear got you into SIN in the first place at the Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil, but when I nailed Jesus to the Cross, I placed your Ear against the Doorpost of HIS Cross, and bored your Earlobe through with the Nails of HIS death. Since Jesus’ death, burial, and Resurrection have fully Paid your debt, This has, also, indebted you to ME Forever as My Personal Slave from the auction-block of SIN!

“Remember, Humans are ALL Slaves!

“Humans outside of Christ are slaves to their own passions while on Earth, and slaves to the penalty of their own sin Forever in HELL!

“However, Humans who are in Christ have been Freed from the tyranny of themselves and married to their benevolent DESPOT, Jesus, The LORD!

“Since this has become your case personally, CASE CLOSED!” 🙂

Is It Finished?

“Is it Finished,” as He said,
when Jesus died for me?
Did He die for ev’ry sin,
to Free Eternally?

Why do I sin though hate it firm,
and agonize to flee?
Why do I miss the matchless charm,
of Christ Who died for me?

When will I find the place of rest,
to stand, not fall again?
When will I KNOW I’ll stand each test,
defeat my ev’ry sin?

It’s Finished when I see that Christ,
doth live and die for me!
It’s Finished when I know He prized,
my Life Eternally!

It’s Finished while we wait the time,
of sin’s last crushing blow!
It’s Finished as our Hopes Sublime,
Look Up for cause to go!

It’s Finished though the Justice Scales,
be weighted toward the Wrong!
It’s Finished ’til Ol’ Gabriel sails,
to trump with Savior’s Song!

We’re Finished when we rest unmoved,
by human kith and kin!
We’re Finished for God’s Final Word,
is Jesus, LORD o’er Sin! 🙂

Evidence For Intelligent Design

“The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design (Paperback)

httpshop wnd comstoreite politically incorrect guide darwinism intelligent design paperback

By: Jonathan Wells

You think you know about Darwinism and intelligent design, but did you know:

* There is no overwhelming evidence for Darwinism;

* Intelligent design is based on scientific evidence, not religious belief;

* What many public schools teach about Darwinism is based on known falsehoods;

* Scientists at major universities believe in intelligent design; *Scientists who question Darwinism are punished—by public institutions using your tax dollars. Battle-hardened veteran with doctorates in biology and theology sets the record straight in The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design.

Why Darwinism—like Marxism and Freudianism before it—is headed for extinction.

In the 1925 Scopes trial, the American Civil Liberties Union sued to allow the teaching of Darwin’s theory of evolution in public schools. Seventy-five years later, in Kitzmiller v. Dover, the ACLU sued to prevent the teaching of an alternative to Darwin’s theory known as “Intelligent Design”—and won. Why did the ACLU turn from defending the free-speech rights of Darwinists to silencing their opponents? Jonathan Wells reveals that, for today’s Darwinists, there may be no other choice: unable to fend off growing challenges from scientists, or to compete with rival theories better adapted to the latest evidence, Darwinism—like Marxism and Freudianism before it—is simply unfit to survive.

Wells begins by explaining the basic tenets of Darwinism, and the evidence both for and against it. He reveals, for instance, that the fossil record, which according to Darwin should be teeming with “transitional” fossils showing the development of one species to the next, so far hasn’t produced a single incontestable example. On the other hand, certain well-documented aspects of the fossil record—such as the Cambrian explosion, in which innumerable new species suddenly appeared fully formed—directly contradict Darwin’s theory. Wells also shows how most of the other “evidence” for evolution— including textbook “icons” such as peppered moths, Darwin’s finches, Haeckel’s embryos, and the Tree of Life—has been exaggerated, distorted . . . and even faked.

Wells then turns to the theory of intelligent design (ID), the idea that some features of the natural world, such as the internal machinery of cells, are too “irreducibly complex” to have resulted from unguided natural processes alone. In clear-cut layman’s language, he reveals the growing evidence for ID coming out of scientific specialties from microbiology to astrophysics. As Wells explains, religion does play a role in the debate over Darwin—though not in the way evolutionists claim. Wells shows how Darwin reasoned that evolution is true because divine creation “must” be false—a theological assumption oddly out of place in a scientific debate. In other words, Darwinists’ materialistic, atheistic assumptions rule out any theories but their own, and account for their willingness to explain away the evidence—or lack of it.

Darwin is an emperor who has no clothes— but it takes a brave man to say so. Jonathan Wells, a microbiologist with two Ph.D.s (from Berkeley and Yale), is that brave man. Most textbooks on evolution are written by Darwinists with an ideological ax to grind. Brave dissidents—qualified scientists—who try to teach or write about intelligent design are silenced and sent to the academic gulag. But fear not: Jonathan Wells is a liberator. He unmasks the truth about Darwinism— why it is wrong and what the real evidence is. He also supplies a revealing list of “Books You’re Not Supposed to Read” (as far as the Darwinists are concerned) and puts at your fingertips all the evidence you need to challenge the most closed-minded Darwinist.”

“The Role of Evolution in Biomedical Research is Highly Exaggerated

Darwinists claim that their theory is the foundation of all science. Indeed, we are often told that nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of it.

In a news article last November, a Stanford biologist claimed he had been guided in his research by Darwinian evolution: “Researchers at the School of Medicine uncovered obestatin [an appetite-suppressing hormone] by using the principles of evolution to pick clues from data held in the Human Genome Project, as well as the genome sequencing projects for many other organisms, among them yeast, fruit flies and mice. ‘Darwin led us to this new hormone,’ said senior author Aaron Hsueh, an endocrinologist and professor of obstetrics and gynecology.”

The Stanford press release continued: “So why does Darwin’s theory deserve some credit? Hsueh explained that before he and his colleagues started the project, they used the genome projects’ information to create a database of GPCRs that grouped them according to their evolutionary relatedness.”

The actual report in Science (310 [2005]: 996) was more subdued: “The discovery of amidated obestatin and its cognate receptor underscores the power of comparative genomic analyses.” The article’s only reference to evolution was a speculation that two of the molecules studied “could have evolved from a common ancestor but diverged in their functions.”

According to Dr. Jonathan Wells, a Berkeley-trained molecular biologist and CSC senior fellow , what really led the researchers to their discovery was comparative genomics, a combination of comparative biology and genetics that owes nothing to Darwinism. Evolution was brought in as an afterthought.

Last year, Dr. Philip Skell, Emeritus Evan Pugh Professor at Pennsylvania State University and a member of the U. S. National Academy of Sciences, wrote in The Scientist that he “examined the outstanding biodiscoveries of the past century: the discovery of the double helix; the characterization of the ribosome; the mapping of genomes; research on medications and drug reactions; improvements in food production and sanitation; the development of new surgeries; and others. I even queried biologists working in areas where one would expect the Darwinian paradigm to have most benefited research, such as the emergence of resistance to antibiotics and pesticides. Here, as elsewhere, I found that Darwin’s theory had provided no discernible guidance, but was brought in, after the breakthroughs, as an interesting narrative gloss.”

Dr. Wells agrees. In his forthcoming book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design (Regnery, 2006), he provides many examples in which Darwinists take credit for advances in biology and medicine that owe nothing to evolutionary theory.

Here are two brief excerpts from Wells’s book, due out later this year: “Bruce Alberts claims that Darwinism is ‘at the core of genetics.’ Yet Mendel had no need for Darwin’s hypothesis. How can Darwinism, which contributed nothing to the origin of genetics and resisted it for half a century, now be at its core? It is Darwinism that needs genetics, not genetics that needs Darwinism.”

and “Darwinists sometimes claim that their theory helps us to understand which animals are most closely related on the basis of their genetic and biochemical similarities. But this is just comparative biology at the level of genes and proteins. Linnaeus did comparative biology, yet he was a creationist who lived a century before Darwin; Owen and Agassiz did comparative biology, yet they rejected Darwin’s theory.”

So comparative genomics, like most other fields in biology, owes nothing to Darwinism. The obestatin research featured in the Stanford press release illustrates the points made by Skell and Wells.”

Are You Saved?

That’s Wonderful, if you truly ARE!

Others have cared for your soul as much as I do! They share Bible verses with you!

Now, if you haven’t offended The Holy Spirit of God past the point of no return, and if He would still care to do so, I pray that He would be pleased to “remove the scales from your spiritual eyes” (at least one last time while you are still in this life) for the purpose of showing you the perilous condition of your soul held over the fires of HELL by the thinnest of threads, called LIFE!

Sinners in The Hands of an Angry God!

Instead of offering cliches and bumper-stickers, May the “sticky” part be the newness with which The Holy Spirit chooses to let some intensely convicting, potentially life-changing Bible verse “stick” in your mind like a “red-hot fire-brand” of the spirit realm! Would to God that it would become an eternal “song that you cannot push out of your head!”

Without Jesus as LORD of your Life, You have no idea how much danger you are playing with…

It remains my dubious honor to be the messenger of the Sovereign to inform you that His Present Long-Suffering shows you a Great Kindness, but when He is finished talking to you, (offering you His forgiveness and salvation,) then His Justice will be upon you more quickly than you could ever imagine and irreparably with more FEAR than you have ever had!

YOU NEED TO TAKE ME SERIOUSLY!

Hebrews 9:27 & Hebrews 10:28-31, KJV,…
“27And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:…”

” 28He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

29Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

30For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
———————

If you laugh at THIS post, then it may seriously indicate that you are already too far gone, and that you are already victim of a “red-hot poker” in the spiritual realm that has cauterized your soul’s ability to “feel” spiritually-speaking.

If THAT has happened, then there truly is nothing more FOR me to say to you! THAT would make you one of those truly impoverished souls without HOPE, for God would have no more MERCY for your soul!
———————-

Sinners in The Hands of an Angry God!

I urge you not to respond quickly! I urge you to think, long & hard, before you respond at all!

I urge you to repent and BELIEVE THE GOSPEL that THE LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, died to pay for your sins and mine, that He buried until the third day to prove that He really was dead completely, and that He raised Himself back to Life to prove that Only HE has complete power over the Death Angel,…which thankfully means that believers in Jesus Christ no longer need to fear death!

You see, on the day that I die (from your perspective,) it will merely be my Final Birthday! I am looking forward to being born into Eternity from the Womb of Time!

This Life is merely an extended gestation period for those of us who accept The Person of Jesus Christ and His Character as He has described Himself to Mankind!

Jesus has Character that is worthy of my Trust! Humans…….do…NOT come close! :/
