The Constitution Has Served Us Perfectly To Preach, But It Is Not The Gospel

The U.S. Constitution Will Pass Away – God’s Word Will Not

Hi, Westboro Baptist Church.

I’m working on a project to subject the Constitution of the United States of America to the scriptures to provide for more Christian liberty, and encourage the people and government to obey God. If you would like to have a look at it, and comment or make suggestions, please let me know.

Thanks.

Edward

 

Good morning, Edward –

I don’t see value in this as a thing to spend time on.

That Constitution was put in place by the Lord our God and it has served us perfectly to preach this Gospel.

In thinking on what to spend our time on, I love these verses and the context thereof.

Matthew 8:22  But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

Luke 9:60  Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

We preach to the walking dead and every work of this earth will melt in a fervent heat.  What will remain is every last Word of God till it all be fulfilled.  As the children of Israel were wandering 40 years, waiting, as every soul from 20 years and up perished (except for Joshua and Caleb) — so much death and sorrow — Moses wrote Psalm 90.  He knew that was the path that the Lord their God ordered at that hour and this nation is doubtless on a similar path, but, to destruction.  There will be no constitutional fix.

Psalm 90:7 ¶  For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled. 8  Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance. 9  For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told. 10  The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. 11  Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath. 12 ¶  So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Thank you for asking.

Your friends at WBC.

How Can God Hold The Non-Elect Responsible For Not Believing In Him When He Did Not Give Them Faith?

“Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?” (Romans 9:18-21)

Dear WBC, 

I have a few questions that require your insight and clarification. I hope you will answer the following for me: 

1) Why does WBC preach ‘repent or perish’ when the non-elect cannot repent (are in fact damned) and the elect cannot perish? Please clarify this for me. 

2) Please can you explain how God can hold the non-elect/reprobates responsible for not believing in Him (God) and than damn them for it? Did God deliberately not give them the faith to believe to start off with? Please can you clarify this for me as well.  

Thank you for your time, It is much appreciated. I look forward to your response.

Kind regards, 

Chad

 

Good morning, neighbor –

  1. We preach what Christ and the apostles preached. We preach what John the Baptist preached. We do not know the heart. God alone knows. We are instructed to do it!

“John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.”  Mark 1:4

“And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” Luke 24:47

“And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits; And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse: But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats. And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. And they went out, and preached that men should repent.” Mark 6:7-12

  1. Please read Romans 9 in full.

“That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son. And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodom, and been made like unto Gomorrha.” Romans 9:8-29

But you know this already. Thus your question. So please read Isaiah 6 and 10 and focus on the Sovereignty of God and His perfect work and righteousness! Abraham, in anticipation of the total annihilation of Sodom and the cities of the plains said:

“…Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” Genesis 18:25

This work of serving God is a daily minute by minute activity: submission, prayer, reading God’s word, seeking wisdom, understanding and faith, etc. Questions across the pond will never do.

Thank you for writing.

Abortion: A Condition During The Revelation

The bloody practice of slaughtering the child in the womb is a particular way that a lady makes herself a “woman that sheds blood.”

“Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:  Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them; Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness. And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.” (Ezekiel 16:35-38)

I’m offering up this analysis in support of the proposition that one of the acute conditions of the earth as it prepares for the Revelation of Jesus Christ, is widespread abortion.

The language of the passage quoted above is — as history confirms for us — a promise to the debauched nation of Judah (southern two tribes) that they would face a great slaughter.  However, it is also a description of the severity of things in the whole of the earth as the days of this race come to a close.  The language “and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy is a clear reference to the plagues that fall under the sounding of the first two trumpets (Revelation 8:7-8), and the pouring out of the second and third vials (Revelation 16:3-4), the reason for which plague is stated:  “For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.” (Revelation 16:6)

Expositors on the Ezekiel 16 passage — and specifically related to the language in verse 38 “shed blood” — intimate the practice of women sacrificing their children to idols.  This is true, of course, because when a woman aborts the child in her womb, it is done as a sacrifice to the idol of her lust and her notion that she must have freedom to fornicate (as the “Fornicate for Freedom” button that was advertised in a photo that went viral recently).  Because the context of the verse is referencing the adulterous conduct (both spiritual and physical) of the Jewish nation, it is particularly relevant to that relationship (Christ and His Bride — God and his betrothed) that the shedding of blood is occurring.  The bloody practice of slaughtering the child in the womb is a particular way that a wife — or betrothed — makes herself a “woman that sheds blood”.

I hope this is helpful to any soul whose spirit burns over that malicious act that defines our generation — so that you might testify of it when you are given opportunity by the Holy Ghost.

“A Jew Can Only Be An ‘Apostate’ Concerning Their Judaism — Not To Christianity.” Not If You Consider That Moses Was A Christian!

From a purely BIBLE perspective, anyone who claims to be a Jew (from a faith standpoint, rather than just from a blood lineage perspective), and who does not believe the Lord Jesus Christ to be the Son of God and their Saviour and Redeemer, is an apostate Jew.

Dear Westboro Baptist Church,

 If you don’t mind my saying, the use of the word apostate strikes me as imprecise in the sign, “God hates Christ-rejecting apostate Jews.” So an “apostate Jew” is actually somebody whom you would say that God loves, because you’d say that God would want the Jew to renounce Judaism and to accept Christ and Christian teachings. Thus, I might expect a WBC sign to say, “God loves Jews who accept Christ and renounce rabbinic Judaism.”

 To be sure, some scholars believe that Jesus was himself was similar to a rabbi, in the way he preached to this fellow Jews and the way he interpreted scripture (that is, the Old Testament laws and passages that Jesus refers to). But even if Jesus himself was a rabbi, after Jesus “rabbinic Judaism” develops without accepting Christ or Christianity at all.

 My two cents.

 –Hillel

 

Dear Hillel,

This view of the matter is unlearned, pedantic, didactic and doctrinally unsound. All of the prophets prophesied of the Messiah, and only Christ as the Messiah – salvation has always been, from Gen. 1:1 to Rev. 22:11, only through Christ. Every sacrifice ever made under the Levitical code was a type of Christ – on this point, which is THE point – please read and reread all of Hebrews 9. Christ was from the beginning (link these two verses together): “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Gen. 1:1 AND “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1.

And please consider Hebrews 11:13: “These all (Abel, Enoch, Noah,  Abraham, Sara, Jacob, Moses, Rahab, Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jepthae, Samuel, David, etc.,) died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.” The promises were all of Christ.

In the most real terms, Abraham was a Christian(!), he spoke to Christ face to face and believed on Him (see Gen. 18 for help with this). Moses was a Christian(!): “By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.” Heb. 11:24-26. Joshua was a Christian(!) who, when in Christ’s presence, knew who He was and immediately fell and worshipped Him (see Joshua 5:13-15 for help with this very sobering event). Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego were Christians(!) who were in the presence of and protected by Christ in the hottest (pun intended) of Gentile persecutions (see all of Daniel 3 for help with this).

Any true, faithful Jew in the Bible was a true and faithful Christian – though Christ hadn’t yet revealed Himself publicly, in either His first or second advent, He was not only prophesied of and believed on, but showed Himself many times to his beloved sheep in what the old preachers called ‘Christophanies.’ So, in point of fact, and from a purely BIBLE perspective, anyone who claims to be a Jew from a faith standpoint (a spiritual Jew, rather than just from a blood lineage or national perspective), and who does not believe the Lord Jesus Christ to be the Son of God and their Saviour and Redeemer, is an apostate Jew.

All the cute, clever academic wrangling about something so vitally important to every man’s never-dying soul simply takes the breath away in its Pharisean blindness and stiff-necked rebellion against their Saviour. This, from the day that the first man born on this earth murdered the second (simply because he followed and exhorted his murderous brother to the proper pattern and type of sacrifice – that only blood [Christ] atones for sin), all the way down to the intellectual, Christ-rejecting , litigious, hard-hearted Jews we live amongst today.

And that’s not anti-Semitic. It’s big time Semitic, from a spiritual perspective (which is really the only perspective that ultimately matters). So, we preach Christ to all men, including the ‘Jews.’

 Hope this helps. Thanks!
