What Our Individual Actions as Believers Show Will Determine God's Mercy Upon Us http://ttimesofttrouble.webs.com/howtogaingodsmercy.htm
“How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? (Proverbs 1:22)-(KJV)
“So he said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, you will know that ‘I Am Who I Am’; then you will know that I do nothing on my own authority, but I say only what the Father has instructed me to say. And he who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, because I always do what pleases him. (John 8:28-29)-(GNT)
Because Christ looks to the Father for direction wanting to please Him always, so do I and so should we all as brothers and sisters. So when we look at ourselves along with everything about us we must fully realize absolutely nothing can be hid from God; therefore we need ask ourselves -- Is God pleased with me in all I think, speak and do while claiming His name in my life? Can I prove without doubt or question the birth of Christ was on December 25th, giving of gifts, Santa Clause, the Christmas tree and everything else I do in life pertaining to holidays including Easter, Valentine’s day and all other unwritten days humans honor which Christ as our Head to follow had nothing to do with?
Please try to understand that my past life through many decades from childhood with holidays was no different than anyone else, so I am not hear to judge or condemn anyone, but rather only teach you what God has been directly teaching me for many years without man to interfere through human ways, doctrines, traditions and beliefs God warns all believers against.
Being we as individuals are just who we are, all of us as human beings see things differently according to our own perspective; therefore what I am about to write as briefly as possible while leaving much out has a definite and very strong purpose with God’s reasons why to follow.
On highways I was a man to stop and help others when broke down or out of Gas. In massive parking lots many a time in cold weather when I would see someone who could not get their vehicle started I would help and even diagnose the problem with often correcting it; and when asked how much do I owe you? I would say nothing at all because their genuine appreciation was all I needed.
I have through the years picked up many a hitchhiker because I used to be one myself; and when pulling my 5th wheel camper from job to job as a welder/millwright all over America, sometimes I would even give them a place to sleep and a meal.
A person at a gas mart needed coin, so I gave him $5 for a meal.
A man who I had greatly helped many times wanted to borrow my two new 40’ aluminum latter, so I let him and he took them to a pawn shop.
I gave $5000 to a church building fund.
I bought $300 in groceries for a family in need. Gave a $1000 donation to Midnight Call magazine, $700 for CP research, sponsored a child in India and have been giving whatever was possible to people in need all through my past and those around me for years now even though through these past years my wife and I could barely get by; and it’s because when some were blind and without shoes, all we could see was they had much less then what we and many others have.
I visited twice a woman with a small hammer and big pile of rocks that she made smaller to bag and sell because that was her living - and she was blind.
Years of giving just anything possible to children with their smiles filled with great joy was always as the best reward anyone could ever receive.
My wife and I gave a 5000 peso donation to the elementary school where she teaches to help them get a water supply for the children.
In December of 2011 there was a typhoon and flood waters that destroyed many a bamboo home, and because my wife and I had been helped, we gave 5000 peso to a couple with two daughters. And once I began to work we gave them thousands more only to never see them at all unless they asked for more.
In the brief work God blessed me with, before my first pay came with a 125,000 peso deduction for my way past due passport visa that was years behind, I learned that one of the office women was with no pay because she got an advance to pay her dads hospital and supply medication --- so I gave her 5000 from my first month’s pay because I only wanted to help
The welding foreman asked me if he could borrow a 1000 peso, so I gave and said just don’t worry about paying back. One day I felt compelled to give one of the welding employees a 1000 peso just out of kindness; and later that day he said; my only baby was without milk, but because of what you did, now she has it. Do you know how good that made me feel? Where I was working in Timamana Philippines, the company QED had two locations a short walk apart on each side of the road, so in my often short walk between I would see and meet many a person.
On one occasion I see this elderly man carrying a log while walking on the other side of the road, so I cross to say hello and noticed he was not only very aged, but had no slippers (flip flops), so I said why nothing on your feet? No peso. So I gave him 100 peso, then another day a 100, then one more time a 100 while asking him, who is the woman way ahead of you? He said my wife, so I gave him a 100 more and said it’s for her. The man said God will bless you.
All through rural areas and in cities of the Philippines there are eateries, or just an open bamboo huts with 5-10 pans or containers with various foods to eat; and being I was a mechanical supervisor with a crew of men, that’s where they all ate on credit till payday. Well one day I just paid the bill for them all.
On other occasions in private and no one’s business just as what I had done for others, I gave many different mechanics a gift for no reason other than kindness. Because I often went into Surigao, I would always meet new people. One woman, a Catholic in a choir needed help, so I gave her 2000 peso. Another with children I gave 500, 200, 500 peso. Another still in school, no dad, very kind and very religious, I helped very many times. There was a woman with age and not a full deck while always walking the boulevard on ocean front, and she was a beggar. It got to the point where every time I saw her, I would give 50-100 peso, and it made her so very happy because she could buy something to eat.
During the time of my only good 4 months work in six years as a mechanical supervisor for a drilling corporation, my wife's dad became very ill and had to go into the hospital, and his survival was totally up to God because of his serious health condition; and being I actually had employment, Mylene was able to pay all of the medical costs involved; and through our many prayers he got well and was released; and as always through the years past and still whenever possible Mylene sends her mother and father money because they have absolutely zero income and are in their 80's.
Once I posted this link http://ttimesoftroubles.webs.com/familyinphilippines.htm - then twice asking for any help whatsoever for them saying that even just $20 per month would greatly bless their life, and there was never even one word or any care with kindness in any way.
And that's our commanded love for one another?
Back home in Bacong where my wife and I have been together nearly seven years there was a woman with a small boy who also worked in a store for little pay, and one day I began to give her some pesos just to help, and through time she said that no one in her life has ever done anything for her in just kindness the way I did.
When my wife and I took a Ferry to Cebu's American Embassy for my marriage paperwork, as our boat docked there were many tiny boats with woman, children and men asking for coins, and as little as we had, about 200-300 peso we tossed over the side while wishing we could do more.
Whenever I go into Dumaguete, a city near Bacong, there are always many people being woman, men and children as those in need with a cup for coin; some are missing body parts, some very aged, others just children who seem so alone in this world with nothing, some women with that sad look carrying a child, and you can easily see it’s just a trained expression for collecting, yet they still have nothing regardless of their tactics - - - so when I can, many times 20 peso, sometimes 100, and other times 200 with the point being I want to help them all over and over, but most of the time I am lucky to even have a meal myself.
When I see a man working on a three wheeled bike selling items while peddling with his arms because he has no legs, it’s those people who I want to help the most because they work so hard, make so little, and ask for nothing.
When one travels up into the mountainous areas only to see a family of three children, their tiny hut and their dad gathering roots and rice for food to eat with no mother, all I want to do is take them all out for a meal like they have never before had, buy the kids a gift, give them ice cream, take them to see a movie or just anything they have never before done.
I met this fine woman squatted down in her shanty because she can’t walk, and sadness just fills me because there is absolutely nothing that I can do for her. How would you like a life no different than being as a prisoner in life that can't walk?
At 81 she still uses a heavy iron pipe as a root cutter to make plowing her small corn field easier. We gave her what we could, and just as all others, wanted to do more.
Where we live, all I see is children and people walking the dirt trails while knowing that most have only rice and boiled leaves to eat; therefore can understand so well because my wife and I have had our share of the same hardships where many times rice, breads, fish and a few basic needs were purchased by me on word of mouth credit; yet even though we had hard times I was willing to go anywhere in the world doing whatever work was needed - and I even offered myself to any refugee camp in Africa or anywhere where help was needed. At one time I was even willing to part with an internal organ to help another if it was God's will. I also wanted to become a part of any active church with only God’s truth, but because of God's own words believers don't believe, none existed without Satan within; therefore nothing ever happened because it was not the will of God.
"Write this to the angel of the Church in Pergamum: ‘These words are spoken by him who has the sharp two-edged sword. I know where you live—where Satan sits enthroned. I know that you hold fast to my name and that you never denied your faith in me even in the days when Antipas, my faithful witness, was martyred before your eyes in the very house of Satan. (Revelation 2:12-13)-(JB Phillips)
Never forget God's words are pure without man deciding what is in context and what is not because that is only the devil distracting minds from truth; and he is good at it as the father of lies who has deceived and misled this entire civilization of believers and non believers only into his darkness with no true light.
What I could do is just continue on and on and on with years of stories that have no end to what we have done for others while still wanting to build a small bamboo shanty in our yard as a place to stay for some children who would like to work as helpers; and when God makes it possible, a helper for my wife with laundry still done by hand and other simple needs because all she does is work with much physical weakness due poor blood circulation because of her weak heart with other ailments that wants her to slow down; and shes only 41.
Because of my work through 4 months (February through May 2012) out of six years, just one month my pay was over 250,000 peso; and just so you can grasp that amount, prior to being employed I would get 1000 peso loans at 20% which took me months to repay. A 1000 peso is about $20
What God did was bless us because I came upon work, but all God wanted was for me to earn money for a publishing contract regarding my book ‘Message for This Entire Human Race, seeing this world once again while being a part of it, and gaining the funds to buy a larger lot so we could have something called a place to live with hopes of a better life while returning me to daily struggles once again so that I could continue doing His works as a messenger within a way of life's hard times depending on Him through faith.
So what brought all this on?
At the end of 2006 I left America on a one way ticket to the Philippines with little money, no savings and no income due an old head injury which left me disabled. And that was my beginning with God in spiritual ways none can understand.
It was January 2007 when my money was no more, yet because I always traveled with my Bibles and study books, I had great faith in God and the religions of man; so I began seeking help of any kind just to survive because there was no work to be had - especially for a foreigner in a poor country that could not even work its own.
Now for the extremely important reason of why I wrote above on giving to others through a heartfelt Christ like love.
This link shows much of my accomplishments through years of hardships with difficulties teaching me how to live on faith.
Added are the times my wife was sick, in pain, needed medication and times we had no food with no help from anyone when all I had been doing for years is seeking anything at all from my brothers and sisters in Christ no matter how small it may be only to receive near absolutely nothing for almost seven years other than times when God would touch a persons heart when our needs were so great even though myself and Mylene have always given to others even when we had little to give because we know what its like.
Please know that I write never to complain because I understand God's purpose on why our life has been so difficult for years now; therefore write only as a messenger of truth through faith with endurance and understanding while preparing myself spiritually to accept whatever suffering which shall come upon me through the years ahead with what Paul went through in 2 Corinthians 11:23-27 for one example - what Job suffered losing his possessions of great wealth, seven sons and three daughters while even becoming covered with painful boils from head to toe with his own friends turning against him as hypocrites for another example. Wanting the faith of Elijah in knowing only God can be ones supplier in famine (1 Kings 17) and world chaos while also wanting the very strong faith of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego who chose to burn rather than deny God. (Daniel 3)
So understand the message through my years of preparing for God's work which is for you and all on earth who seek only truth through the words of God and never man.
How have I sacrificed myself in other ways aside from all you have read?
Once I had a $7000 Mac Tool Box loaded with tools -- and now all I have is small plastic box with few tools including some rusty wrenches. 70 Malibu
68 GTO 400
67 Chevelle SS
I also enjoyed a small muscle car collection, engines and much more -- and now an old Kia with problems I can’t even fix due lack of tools and funds – I owned a Harley Soft Tail – and now a Rusi 70 cc – I once lived in a nice home on 4 acres with in-ground pool, a paint and repair shop filled with equipment such as welders, torches, drill press, nuts, bolts and just enough miscellaneous for doing or repairing about anything along with outdoor tools, blower, mowers, weed eaters, sprayers, chain saws, shovels, sledges, wedges, a hydraulic splitter and more with the whole point of why what you read was even mentioned being the most important words you will ever read shall follow because from what I once had, all I have now is a 20’x13’storage building made into a home you can see in the link at the end of this writing. The most important subject this is based on is what I have been writing through God’s own words for years now which nobody wants to hear, understand or even believe; and it’s what God speaks to all who claim to know love and honor Him – while according to God’s own words, they all as believers don’t even know Him in His Spirit of Truth.
Think on this; for nearly seven years I have been seeking loving brothers and sisters being of the body of Christ which is the only true Church of God who follow only their Head Jesus Christ; and for seven years I have been hated, ignored, judged, scorned and never helped even when all I asked for was Kraft dinners or a box of old miscellaneous unneeded items that I could at least repair, use, give away or even sell so we could at least eat.
So I ask this question; How can a world of God loving born again saved religious brethren and sisters be so uncaring and cruel while not even doing what God says? I can also well understand the spammers online through a recent time when I finally decided to send a King James Bible to a church in Nigeria. They wanted many and in large print, but through much time shopping with great effort, the best I could do was one King James in large print for 1600 peso costing more than half of what I had; and then came the expense of over a 1000 peso just to mail it; and for all my time with concern, never even a thank you because there are many organizations who collect items freely to just sell; and I have been badly taken financially more times in my life through the 90's with numbers reaching six figures; therefore I can understand mistrust, but when any individual can see a person’s proven track record of devotion to God for the benefit of all humanity using only His truth with no trust in man, there ought to be plenty of trust - yet believers still will not help in any way whatsoever; therefore it's God they will answer to. Ecclesiastes 12
Please read these most important words from our Lord to all on earth that choose or desire truth.
“We know that we have left death and come over into life; we know it because we love others. Those who do not love are still under the power of death. Those who hate others are murderers, and you know that murderers do not have eternal life in them. This is how we know what love is: Christ gave his life for us. We too, then, ought to give our lives for others! If we are rich and see others in need, yet close our hearts against them, how can we claim that we love God? My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action. (1 John 3:14-18)-(GNT)
Now read more words directly from God which show just how important the words you just read truly are.
“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (1 John 4:7-8)-(KJV)
Please take careful note of what our Lord being THE WORD speaks in the verse you just read while remembering how every word of God is pure as you look closely at yourself in seeing exactly what you have been doing for others, because that is how God is going to judge all believers on this planet when there is nothing but famine, chaos and death within a world that becomes lawless and totally out of control.
Jeremiah 17 - In other words, what you did for others is exactly what God shall do for you when in great need.
At this time my wife and I have an 96 KIA with many problems; therefore when she rides off to her job as a teacher in the hard rains it just breaks my heart that as her loving husband because there is nothing I can do to change what really hurts me; and my wife was a gift to me from God who never complains, but always keeps her faith regardless of all that goes wrong in our life, and its that true faith we want to teach others when God makes a way because billions also suffer hardships that are only going to become far worse through the coming years.
Now for some of the strongest words from God which are never taught anywhere, because if they were, this world would not be the mess that it is because God would be with all religious people rather than these following words a world of believers do not believe.
First come the way God sees all the inhabitants on earth.Psalms 14
Through this following verse, if you choose to hear only God, you will be introduced to His own pure words this entire world of believers has no knowledge of just as God described in the verse you just read.
“See, I come quickly! I carry my reward with me, and repay every man according to his deeds. I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last, the Beginning and the End. Happy are those who wash their robes, for they have the right to the tree of life and the freedom of the gates of the city. Shut out from the city shall be the depraved, the sorcerers, the impure, the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practises a lie! (Revelation 22:12-15)-(JB Phillips)
Remember who God sees as murderers in 1 John 3:14-17?
All of what God speaks is only words of truth with no interpretation needed. So what did our Lord just deliver to all believers? First were these words. . .
"I carry my reward with me, and repay every man according to his deeds. (Revelation 22:12)
Now look closely at what our Lord Jesus Christ tells all through His words we must now hear while never looking to self or man to change truth.
“Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. (Proverbs 21:13)-(KJV)
“If you refuse to listen to the cry of the poor, your own cry for help will not be heard. (GNT)
“Those who refuse to help the poor will not receive help when they need it themselves. (ERV) I have learned through many years now to ask for nothing nor expect because God has taught me well to never depend on man or what words they speak; therefore you need to look at only yourself while asking how many strangers, family members, brothers and sisters you have helped while knowing God shall give you the same when the tables have turned and you are in great need. And if you yourself are in such dire circumstances and cannot help even yourself let alone anyone else, God knows - so use your faith in casting all of your cares upon Him because He cares for you and will help you -- if you have faith and obedience to His words of truth written in your heart.
The Word we all must learn to live by will now show the coming destiny of all believers who choose not truth; and in these words are when God will not hear your many cries which make what you are about to read so very important; yet but few will see and act according to God over man because shepherds worldwide teach no full truth you are about to read.
Punishment, Repentance, and Hope
I am one who knows what it is to be punished by God.
He drove me deeper and deeper into darkness
And beat me again and again with merciless blows.
He has left my flesh open and raw, and has broken my bones.
He has shut me in a prison of misery and anguish.
He has forced me to live in the stagnant darkness of death.
He has bound me in chains; I am a prisoner with no hope of escape.
I cry aloud for help, but God refuses to listen;
I stagger as I walk; stone walls block me wherever I turn.
He waited for me like a bear; he pounced on me like a lion.
He chased me off the road, tore me to pieces, and left me.
He drew his bow and made me the target for his arrows.
He shot his arrows deep into my body.
People laugh at me all day long; I am a joke to them all.
Bitter suffering is all he has given me for food and drink.
He rubbed my face in the ground and broke my teeth on rocks.
I have forgotten what health and peace and happiness are.
I do not have much longer to live; my hope in the Lord is gone.
The thought of my pain, my homelessness, is bitter poison.
I think of it constantly, and my spirit is depressed.
Yet hope returns when I remember this one thing:
The Lord's unfailing love and mercy still continue,
Fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise.
The Lord is all I have, and so in him I put my hope.
The Lord is good to everyone who trusts in him,
So it is best for us to wait in patience—to wait for him to save us—
And it is best to learn this patience in our youth.
When we suffer, we should sit alone in silent patience;
We should bow in submission, for there may still be hope.
Though beaten and insulted, we should accept it all.
The Lord is merciful and will not reject us forever.
He may bring us sorrow, but his love for us is sure and strong.
He takes no pleasure in causing us grief or pain.
The Lord knows when our spirits are crushed in prison;
He knows when we are denied the rights he gave us;
When justice is perverted in court, he knows.
The will of the Lord alone is always carried out.
Good and evil alike take place at his command.
Why should we ever complain when we are punished for our sin?
Let us examine our ways and turn back to the Lord.
Let us open our hearts to God in heaven and pray,
“We have sinned and rebelled, and you, O Lord, have not forgiven us.
“You pursued us and killed us; your mercy was hidden by your anger,
By a cloud of fury too thick for our prayers to get through.
You have made us the garbage dump of the world.
“We are insulted and mocked by all our enemies.
We have been through disaster and ruin; we live in danger and fear.
My eyes flow with rivers of tears at the destruction of my people.
“My tears will pour out in a ceaseless stream
Until the Lord looks down from heaven and sees us.
My heart is grieved when I see what has happened to the women of the city.
“I was trapped like a bird by enemies who had no cause to hate me.
They threw me alive into a pit and closed the opening with a stone.
Water began to close over me, and I thought death was near.
“From the bottom of the pit, O Lord, I cried out to you,
And when I begged you to listen to my cry, you heard.
You answered me and told me not to be afraid.
“You came to my rescue, Lord, and saved my life.
Judge in my favor; you know the wrongs done against me.
You know how my enemies hate me and how they plot against me.
“You have heard them insult me, O Lord; you know all their plots.
All day long they talk about me and make their plans.
From morning till night they make fun of me.
“Punish them for what they have done, O Lord;
Curse them and fill them with despair!
Hunt them down and wipe them off the earth!”
If you do as our Lord instructs in these following words, you will never be one crying out to a God who will not hear.
“Never let your brotherly love fail, nor refuse to extend your hospitality to strangers—sometimes men have entertained angels unawares. Think constantly of those in prison as if you were prisoners at their side. Think too of all who suffer as if you shared their pain. (Hebrews 13:1-3)-(JB Phillips)
What's wrong with this human race is they can see only self with closed minds and a built in self-defense which always makes them as individuals correct with anyone else not in agreement wrong; and my past seven years of being steadily murdered by a world of loving brethren and sisters has shown why God called me and placed within learning through years of experiences being just how He sees all of this world rather than. . . Colossians 3
Always remember, I am not here to judge, accuse, argue or make enemies, but only as a messenger from God who none, no, not one wants to hear because the ruling spirits have psychologically placed different thoughts within minds they choose not to overcome through belief in only the words of our Lord who all believers claim to love and believe while giving honor to unwritten days such as Christmas and other holidays with pagan origin right along side billions of others who also are of this world rather than what you just read along with these very important words. . .
