UN-FORGIVENESS:

“Choosing” to hold bad feelings toward a person who has repented.

Repent means — admitted it to themselves, stopped it and lying about it, confessed it to you and God, and asked you to forgive them … for what they have done to you. 1 John 1:1-10, Matthew 18:15-35, Matthew 5:22-24

See What Is Bitterness?

Comment on this FAQ

As our normal, daily, way of living we deny the power Jesus Christ gives us to obey Him — this is called being a “sinner”.

If we are a sinner,  JESUS asks us to REPENT — to be a person of  a truthful, loving heart by agreeing with Him that we are a sinner (See glossary definition for “Repent”).

Actions that prove you repent:

1) confess our disobedience against God’s word (sin),

2) forsake disobedience (sin),

3) ask forgiveness from God and others we have injured (sinned against).

This 1-2-3 expresses an attitude and action of “love” — from a truthful, loving heart!

Comment on this FAQ

Disobedience against God’s Word is the definition of SIN.

Jesus Christ is God’s recent and final Word to all mankind, for eternity!

John 1:1-4, John 12:48, Hebrews 1:1-8

Comment on this FAQ

Acts Chapters 1-3

There are only two categories of Christians: Pentecostal or Non-Pentecostal.

Pentecostal is Christians who obey Jesus in the same faith that the first Christians did:

Expecting and seeking to be baptized in the same miracle power of Jesus Christ that the first Christians were commanded by Him to expect and RECEIVE.

Jesus “baptizes in The Holy Spirit”, proven with the same proof the first Christians had —  the initial miracle evidence of other tongues (Holy Spirit-given spiritual languages). These things fulfilled on the day of Pentecost.

 

Comment on this FAQ

Peace is a conscience clean of offending GOD. God says, there is no peace to the wicked — although everything in a wicked life (disobedient to God) may appear and feel “peaceful” – relationships, finances, health, even feelings about God!

Jesus Christ who is the Prince of Peace, is the only source with the power to give you peace “on His terms”. John 14:27

Comment on this FAQ

 

MODESTY is a shame-faced feeling (humility) of reverence for God and Christ that keeps you from feeling bold and brazen with your body and clothing (1 Timothy 2:9).

1 Corinthians 12:18-24 teaches us how Jesus feels about his body (Christians) and the comparison with our own physical bodies is plain. Jesus plainly tells us that on certain parts, God bestows more abundant honor (respect) by covering it … because it is too precious to be seen by the public. Any Christian must have God’s attitude about your body it is not yours to do what you want or feel with it it belongs to the Lord for his service. Have respect and be ashamed to willfully reveal it’s comely parts to the whole wide world. Do not dishonor your body — this is called “modesty” aka humility.

Comment on this FAQ

Full Gospel is more than a synonym for Pentecostal. In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul is Pentecostal and he said “I have ‘fully preached’ the Gospel to you for three years. I am clean and innocent from the blood of every person”. (Minister Clark’s paraphrase). He preached MUCH more than the Baptism in the Holy Spirit!

*** Christians who are ‘Full Gospel’ seek to continuously lay down personal biases, prejudices, and opinions about the Bible, so they can ever receive what JESUS is saying to the churches — not the ideas man clings to for his/her own preferences.

Comment on this FAQ

BITTERNESS:

“Choosing” to hold bad feelings toward someone WHO HAS DONE NOTHING TO YOU (even God) or who has NOT repented for what they did to you (which is not possible for God who does no wrong).

In the kingdom of Jesus Christ, we are commanded to love our enemies … which means we think the truth about their behavior. The Truth is they are under Satan’s supernatural delusion — THE SAME AS WE WERE BEFORE WE REPENTED!

Still … it’s VERY hard to see it that way — only Jesus releases His power to help us do it. Hebrews 12:14-15, Ephesians 4:31, Acts 8:23, Romans 3:14

Comment on this FAQ

Worship is “obedience” from an honest good heart.

 

Jesus (being God) said that God seeks these kind of persons to give Him this kind of worship (John 4:23) .

To God, any efforts toward Him (prayers, church attendance, money, songs, raise and testimonies, etc.) if we are, knowingly, in disobedience to something we know He wants of us is NOT worship. Other activities called worshiping are at that point what HE calls “vain worship”. Vain worship is rejected by JESUS (Luke 8:15, James 1:26, Mark 7:7).

 

Comment on this FAQ

Unbelief is a CHOICE to disagree with and reject the written testimony of God or spoken word of God. A person can demonstrate unbelief against God with their words, actions, or both.

Unbelief  blocks the ability to love people with “God’s love”. Therefore, God hates the sin of UNBELIEF above all! UNBELIEF IS A CHOICE. (Hebrews Chapter 4, Matthew 13:58, Mark 16:14, James 5:20).

The only source that is not contaminated with any deception at all, is found in the Jesus who is miracle born (the Christ) of a virgin  — Jesus from Nazareth.

Jesus Christ is “truth”.  (John 14:6)

James Ch 4, 1 John Ch 1

The Righteous are those persons who treat God right and people right by obeying Jesus Christ.

There is no Judgment of God  (Wrath of God) on the righteous.

The opposite of righteous is “The Wicked” (Evil).

Comment on this FAQ

“The Faith” is the testimony of Jesus Christ in the Gospels as confirmed by His chosen official authorities – the apostles in the New Testament.

 “The Faith” (sometimes  called “your faith”) must be believed as a miracle from God, Himself. The Faith is holy, life-giving, and a gift to be protected at all costs from co-mingling with earthly man-conjured religions or with “Interfaith” gatherings (Ephesians 2:8, Jude 1:20-21).

 

Comment on this FAQ

John Ch 8, 1 Timothy Ch 1

In God, “saved” means Jesus has saved you from the punishment (looming over you in the near future) and, also, hanging over your head eternally — because you are due it for how we treat God, directly, and indirectly by how we treat people!

You can only avoid both these due punishments by doing one thing — REPENT.

Comment on this FAQ

Righteousness simply means “TREAT GOD RIGHT”.

1. God’s way of thinking about whatever (not your perspective).

2. God’s way of behaving toward whatever (not your will).

Three helps for you when seeking to have righteousness with God:

1. Anger worketh not the righteousness of God — “not ever” (James 1:20)

2. Jesus said, ” I am the way, the truth, and the life”. (John 14:6)

3. Jesus said, “blessed are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness”. This means you are desperate to treat GOD right. When choosing who has to get hurt feelings — don’t hurt God! Everyone else is expendable … including yourself! (Matt 5:6)

 

Comment on this FAQ

Repent is to “AGREE WITH GOD”.

IMPORTANT: REPENT is always a CHOICE. The choice is “you are true and God is a liar” OR “God is true and  you are a liar”. DECIDE and SAY SO (confess)!

If God be true, then STOP what you’re doing and saying.

Bottom Line: Repent is to choose (decide) to agree with God about your wrongdoing (admit), say it (confess), stop it (obey Jesus).

 

Comment on this FAQ

PRIDE is demanding your own way against God’s way — from a lying, self-gloating heart. ALL pride (and forms of pride) is the destroyer of pure love and perverts it.

Love agrees with what God says, because God IS love. Pride “always” destroys God’s love from living in our hearts (1 John 4:6-12, ).

Comment on this FAQ

Romans Ch 2

A. Mercy is any single act, and all the total acts that God has been doing to get a person to repent.

B. Mercy is, also, anything and everything that is God’s undeserved kindness toward us.

Comment on this FAQ

LOVE IS OBEDIENCE TO JESUS CHRIST.

In Jesus Christ, there is no definition of love but obedience to Him. God IS love and Christ’s love always does what pleases the Father, God Almighty (John 14:24, 2 Timothy 3:5).

If we obey Christ’s commands, it is what God calls “loving Him from a truthful, loving heart”.

To avoid deception, we must be strict with ourselves and others: Repetitive disobedience means I don’t love Jesus … or you. SIMPLE.

 

Comment on this FAQ

Liar is any person — or event — that seeks to mock, despise, dispute, or oppose the Words of Jesus Christ and His original  authorized apostles of the New Testament. (1 Timothy 6:3-5, 1 John Chapter 4)

Comment on this FAQ

Ephesians 5, Colossians 3

A. Judgment is “the wrath of God” hovering over our lives if we are living any sin and refusing to admit it, confess it and stop it (repent).

God’s Mercy rejoices against judgment. Mercy is every single moment and day that God is choosing to hold back His wrath off of a person instead of loosing it upon them. He tries to give them an opportunity to repent — before it’s too late.

B. Judgment is wisdom and understanding from God for how to treat God right, directly, and how to treat people — He loves people.

See “Condemnation”.

 

 

Comment on this FAQ

Hate defined by the miracle Holy Ghost in a miracle revelation, June 2020:

“The raw nature and personality of Satan entered into your conscience, by your consent.”

Comment on this FAQ

Faithful is “meek and humble” that God can rely on you in all situations.

You cannot maintain consistent obedience and enjoy the Lord, except you choose to behave toward God and people with meekness (nonviolence) and humility (a scriptural attitude about one’s self).

Jesus was faithful because he was meek and humble (Matthew 11:29, 1 Peter 2:23).

Comment on this FAQ

Faith is OBEDIENCE to Jesus Christ.

Only Jesus can see inside our hearts — obedience as an act of work, just to say you did it? Or obedience from a truthful, loving heart?

Faith is your obedience to Jesus’ commands … expressed from a truthful, loving heart.

 

Comment on this FAQ

There are different of stages or levels of death.

 

1. Death is “the spiritual state of no more opportunity to repent” of your sins — permanent Judgment. You must have gotten all things right with God before this clock.  1 John 5:17

2. Death is when God commands your spirit to depart from the body you have occupied on this earth. Hebrews 9:27

3. Death is  “the living dead” — a backslider or prodigal condition having walked away from obedience to Jesus and refusing to return. In the Parable of The Prodigal Son (representing God and us who enjoyed a righteous condition with Him), the father says ” my son was dead and is alive again.” Luke chapter 15 shows that a person can be dead spiritually while still alive physically.

Comment on this FAQ

Matthew Ch 15, Mark Ch 7

Covering is an IRS derived term adopted by most Christians for seeking tax deductions. It evolved into a spiritual false doctrine called “spiritual covering”.

Comment on this FAQ

 

John Ch 3, Romans 8

A. Condemnation is the “Wrath of God” (aka Judgment) hovering upon a person for choosing to continue mistreating God, directly, or through how one treats people. See “Judgment”

B. Condemnation is also a “feeling”. The feeling a person has who is under the condemnation of God is what people are trying to describe when they say they feel condemned or do not want to feel condemned.

God is so wise — He has created man’s heart in such a way that we cannot “feel” His condemnation unless, DESERVINGLY, we ARE IN IT. The solution is not to be angry with everyone around you because you feel  condemned. Just repent of your evil ways and the feeling will go away.

Comment on this FAQ

Church is “INDIVIDUALS” who have REPENTED OF THEIR SINS to OBEY JESUS CHRIST, and are under the authority of a man or woman Pastor — who is (1) born-again (admitted and turned  from sin to Christ); (2) Jesus-chosen (not man-made),  (3) “Anointing-Sent” (had a Divine encounter).

The “Anointing” that sends is Jesus Christ, Himself, as the Holy Spirit.

NOTHING ELSE IS A CHURCH!

(Upgraded above definition on January 21, 2021. also, Revelation 3:9 – ‘Jews’ in this spiritual context refers, specifically, to “Christians”).

 

 

Comment on this FAQ

CHOSEN

A miracle experience with God, different from all human experience, but proven in Holy Scripture – whereby Jesus Christ selects you and commands you a specific task, then confirms it.

A DIRECT ENCOUNTER WITH THE LIVING CHRIST — not selected by men, women, universities or college — but acknowledged by them.

Comment on this FAQ

BLESS is to receive the kindness of God upon a person.

Jesus commands repented persons “BLESS and CURSE NOT” (Romans 12:14, Matthew 5:43-48).

BLESS is, also, to speak kind things about God, to God, and about God’s holy things (Preachers are holy things, The Holy Bible, Church are a few examples).

The opposite of blessing God is blasphemingHim or his holy things. (Rom 2:24, 2Tim 3:2, Titus 2:5, James 2:7, Rev 13:6)

Comment on this FAQ

BELIEVE is OBEY from the “HEART”.

Believe is obedience. Faith is obedience. Belief and Faith are the same thing in the Lord Jesus Christ. Only He can see in your heart — obedience as an act of work just to say you did it — or obedience from a truthful, loving heart.

(John 14:21, James 1:22, Isaiah 1:18-20).

See Glossary: “What is Faith”?

 

Comment on this FAQ

2 Peter Ch 2, Romans Ch 2

Backslider (or Backslidden) is a REBEL.

To rebel against Christ’s words is to rebel against the Kingdom of God and is returning to following Satan as your lord and master.

Jesus numbers a rebel as choosing to be part of the kingdom comprised of those who have rejected Jesus Christ as Lord — just as though they never chose Jesus at all.

Comment on this FAQ

The Apostles” are the twelve persons in the New Testament who are “the” authorities sent by Jesus Christ  given authority over what is preached from Jesus, and over those who preach. Apostles, along with prophets, then and now, are responsible to preserve the original Gospel that Jesus lived and preached.

Persons (male or female) who depart from the ORIGINAL Gospel that Christ Jesus delivered are not apostles today, nor back then,

Christ’s preachers, then and now, have rank –first Apostles, second Prophets, third ranking Evangelists and last in rank Pastors (teachers). See Ephesians 4:11, 1 Corinthians 12:18, 28.

    Thank you so much for this incredible glossary which allows us to learn! I am so grateful!

    Shari, you are so very welcome! Thank you for appreciating how Jesus Christ is loving you through this glossary. It is intended to do just what you said it does.:) — 2019/10/04, 7:15 p.m.

  2. Sorry, Judy’s question in November 2020 was accidentally deleted while cleaning other comments that recently crept in as spam. The spam filter has been updated. So, I am updating my response:

    Judy asked —
    “Are there actual church services where a pastor preaches”?

    I know what Judy means. So, yes.
    HOWEVER Jesus has established Truth Seekers Church to bring Christians back to His simplicity and power in His churches, so the public restores “reverence” for Jesus’ church.

    Judy, all of us in America have become used to thinking of church as a non-profit social organization that we are “entitled” to visit as a public charity giving a public service. That’s where the idea of church “services” came from.

    In this new move Jesus is doing in the earth, both churches and the public are being restored to proper reverence for His churches. CHURCH IS HOLY and MUST BE REVERENCED.

    Churches are private spiritual entities for those who have paid the cost to obey the Bible Jesus. Therefore, no one can just walk off the street and enter our home church meeting place — just as you ( nor any normal person) would allow people to just walk into YOUR HOME (Acts 5:11-13) unknown, uninvited, and UNVETTED!

    Non-members ARE WELCOME to come by invitation of a member, or just call or email to request an invite. So, do it and we will see you soon! Thank you so much for your question!!!

  3. Commenting on STEP FOUR of Basic Steps for Christian Survival — “Focus!”

    Today I considered joining to a group of Independent Ministers that I found online (FGEA.org) who sounded like they had a similar call from Jesus as I … to bring Christians back to New Testament simplicity of worshiping JESUS and away from modern stresses of ministry. I don’t need their ordination (I’m already ordained) but since things on a webpage can be fraudulent these days, I called the phone number hoping to speak to a living person and was happy to get one.

    The gentleman and his group seemed to sync with my heart and I said I would call back today if he had time to continue the conversation for more understanding and answering questions. I left him with this Truth Seekers of Jesus Christ (TM)/ Truth Seekers Church website to get to “know” me awaiting this afternoon’s call back to them. He assured me there would be time and he and his wife looked forward to my return call this afternoon.

    I just called and was told flat and straight. “We’ve looked at your website and disagree with a number of things on your site. We can’t have you in our group. We are Trump supporters and we believe the election was stolen! We don’t believe there was an insurrection! We are against abortion, we are against gays …”. “We know we are doing what God wants us to do”.
    What does any of that have to do with a person calling to learn or support JESUS CHRIST and HIS GOSPEL???

    I asked, “well can we discuss”? The reply ” We don’t have time for you (irritated tone or angrily)”.

    I ask you readers of this “survival” site … was I rejected for a heresy against Jesus of Nazareth — The Christ? No. Was there a rejection of me for being a sinner against the Cross? No. Was there a rejection for being a woman?

    No! I was rejected for being independent and loyal to no Democrat or Republican, but only to the Lord’s “tunnel-vision” pursuit for the eternal soul of EVERY living person” — republican, democrat, progressive, conservative, communist, socialist, American, Russian, Arabian etc. — you get the point.

    I do vote my conscience at the time when voting ballots come around and that must be your own private issue between you and God. Sometimes persons may not even choose to vote — that’s your business, not your pastor’s or any other preacher!

    Just as I told you in STEP FOUR. STAY FOCUSED! I called to hear about Jesus, His Gospel, how we might work together in that. Instead, there was a strong and angry backlash about America’s politics. I informed him, “I can’t be a part … [of your group]”. He responded, “we won’t (or can’t) have you”!

    There are pastors and other Christians (true or false, only God knows in His word) — all over this country who are loyal to the interests of this world, who risk their eternal salvation on a “single earthly political issue” versus securing their soul by loyalty to the only Heavenly Kingdom and the King over ALL kings — JESUS.
    For example, what if you are a “Christian” violently claiming you are pro-life, but you are a racist (James 2:9)? What if you are a “Christian” yelling that you are against gays, but in secret loving pornography or other things (Romans 1:18-32)? Where does the line stop!??

    James 2:11
    For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

    Can you even imagine Jesus getting involved in Augustus Caesar’s political future or failure? Can you imagine the Lord’s apostles marching angrily, riotously up Rome’s government steps to force ANYTHING? For a Christian, the answer should be, indeed MUST BE … “No”!

    Titus 1:5-6
    5) “For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee: 6) If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly”.

    Only God knows the secrets of your “heart toward Him” — AND THAT IS WHAT JESUS CHRIST IS ABSOLUTELY (GUARANTEED) GOING TO JUDGE IN US.

    To Jesus, “nothing matters but your soul going into Heaven or Hell”. That’s what He lived, died, and rose on the third day for! That’s ALL Jesus focused on and He warned us to focus with Him on that:

    1 Peter 5:8-9 — “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world”.

      When we forsake the basics: Being kind (Matthew 5), Being ready to search scripture and see if we may be deceived in some area (Acts 17:11), Being loving toward any/every human being even if we don’t see what they see (2 Timothy 2:24-26) — we have gotten CAUGHT UP IN THE THINGS GOING ON IN THE WORLD AROUND US — no longer caught up in the Gospel.

    I don’t know where all the lines are stopping in anyone’s heart toward Jesus Christ as their LORD; but I do know from the written Holy Scriptures, from His words in the Gospels, and from Jesus’ conversation with me that being caught up in the world around me will take my heart away from JESUS at some point … and that will surely land me in Hell (Matthew 7:21).
