          Beloveds, we must clear up the lie that when the Lord told Joshua he would have good success through obeying the Law, that this was meant for Christians today. The Lord told this to Joshua that in obeying the Old Covenant of the Law God would give him success in conquering certain lands and taking these lands for the nation of Israel: Joshua 1: 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
          
          
          
          Also in keeping the Old Covenant of the Law, (which is all they had from God), he would not face the wrath of God and die as Aaron and Moses did for their disobedience to God in not keeping the Old Covenant of the Law: Num. 27: 12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered. 14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
          
          Moses never preached that the Old Covenant of the Law would make anyone permanently righteous in the sight of God. Here is the truth, preached by our Saviour Jesus Christ: Jhn 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
          
           Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.
          
          See Galatians 3, which explains God’s purposes for the Law; and how Jesus Christ has delivered us from it for all time. Feel free to study on your own the numerous verses that fully declare that Jesus Christ is the eternal Saviour and final sole source of eternal salvation for all time for all who believe in Him. See John 14:6.

          

          Anyone willfully claiming salvation based on keeping the Old Covenant of the Law and/ or combining it with the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, or anything else is not considered a Christian according to the Bible.

          
          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.

          
          Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the CURSE: for it is written, CURSED is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

          1Ti. 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
          7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

          1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

          John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    RECOVERY

    THE ADDICT INSIDE THE CHURCH

    Brothers and sisters, again, there is nothing here promoting anti government sentiments. Our government and our scientists have done a great deal of good. However, in certain cases there are areas where it has not acted in the interest equally of all the people. There is nothing here against laws holding people accountable to obey them or pay the consequences. But the Law should and must apply equally to all without exception. When it doesn’t, holy people, as citizens we all have the rights to speak the truth about it, without being seen as an enemy. 

     

    Currently, holy people, it appears that certain elements of government are headed towards decriminalizing certain drugs, and set to change the national laws to remove some drugs from being illegal i.e., no penalty for sale, manufacture, distribution, or possession.  

     

    Introduced in Senate (07/23/2019) Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act of 2019 or the MORE Act of 2019 This bill decriminalizes marijuana.Specifically, it removes marijuana from the list of scheduled substances under the Controlled Substances Act and eliminates criminal penalties for an individual who manufactures, distributes, or possesses marijuana. The bill also makes other changes, including the following:

    • replaces statutory references to marijuana and marihuana with cannabis,
    • requires the Bureau of Labor Statistics to regularly publish demographic data on cannabis business owners and employees,
    • establishes a trust fund to support various programs and services for individuals and businesses in communities impacted by the war on drugs,
    • imposes a 5% tax on cannabis products and requires revenues to be deposited into the trust fund,
    • makes Small Business Administration loans and services available to entities that are cannabis-related legitimate businesses or service providers,
    • prohibits the denial of federal public benefits to a person on the basis of certain cannabis-related conduct or convictions,
    • prohibits the denial of benefits and protections under immigration laws on the basis of a cannabis-related event (e.g., conduct or a conviction), and
    • establishes a process to expunge convictions and conduct sentencing review hearings related to federal cannabis offenses.

     

     Brothers and sisters, drugs didn’t help the addicts, those who use them just to get high who are people of color, it didn’t help poor white people, it didn’t help rich folks who had and have access to as many and as much drugs as they desire, and now our government is proposing to use it to “help” all the addicts, but really the target is mainly a certain middle- class population. Underneath all of this is the smell of a cash cow for a financially strapped government.

     

    Through government led and paid church surrogates, among others, it is evident that entry has been made into some congregations with the purpose to break the stigma Christians rightly maintain against addictions, by teaching them that addictions are not a sin but a mental/medical disease. Saints, (G40 hagios), this is clearly a constitutional violation and  a covert meddling with the people of God, in hopes of making addictions acceptable to the population in general. This is contrary to the eternal truth of the Bible, which teaches the inerrant truth that  addiction  is sin, and sin leads to death. We have to ponder, brethren, if we are on the cusp of seeing nations becoming the new enabler/drug czars of the world, because of the astronomical revenue to be gained through the control and sale of drugs. I pray this will never happen.

     

    We know, dearly beloveds, that we now have open addicts in some churches, individually, and through various named groups where they can focus solely on their respective addictions, of which there are many more than that of drugs and/or alcohol. Some are struggling and come for help because they want to change. Some are content to have a place where they can find comfort with those similar to themselves, and focus on coping issues with no real intent to change. These groups more often than not operate with their own theology/ teachings, unto themselves, and apart from the general body of brothers and sisters, and the teachings as laid out in scripture. Therefore, they are inside of the church, however, they are absolutely not inside of Jesus Christ according to the eternal, inerrant truth of the Bible.

    love

    Supervised Injectable Opioid Treatment for the Management of ...

    pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30132259

    Since the 1990s, there have been seven clinical trials, and considerable clinical experience, in supervised injectable opioid treatment (SIOT) for individuals who, despite previous treatments, continue to inject illicit heroin and experience harmful health and social consequences.

     

    US appeals court weighs law on supervised injection sites ...

    www.cbs42.com/news/national/us-appeals-court...

    Posted: Nov 16, 2020 / 01:41 PM CST / Updated: Nov 16, 2020 / 01:47 PM CST. FILE – In this Sept. 5, 2019 file photo, Wilfredo Carrasquillo, center, and other protesters demonstrate in support of a proposed supervised injection site, outside the federal courthouse in Philadelphia. A federal appeals court became the latest panel to wrestle with the nation’s opioid epidemic as judges reviewed a plan Monday, Nov. 16, 2020, to open a medically supervised injection site in Philadelphia.

    Addiction is not a disease — and we’re treating addicts ..post.com/2015/07/12/addiction-is-not-a-disease...

    Addiction is not a disease. It’s simply a nasty habit, says neuroscientist Dr. Marc Lewis, himself a longtime addict and professor of developmental psychology, in his new book, “ The Biology of...

     

    Earlier, dearly beloveds, I shared that when I was a child, how my family handled my three uncles who had problems with alcohol by taking control over administering the amount and times to  give them alcohol, in hopes of preventing them from becoming drunks. As I mentioned earlier, it didn’t prevent one uncle from sneaking off to get alcohol and drink to drunkenness and later becoming severely ill, due to organ damage, where he just stopped drinking because of it.

     

    Brothers and sisters, I remember one day escorting this uncle to another relative’s house, because he was not allowed to be alone for fear that he would drink, when a man I never knew before called out to him and offered him a bottle of alcohol. The man and my uncle told me not to tell anyone. My uncle and the man ran off leaving me there. Even back then there were enablers, and this one did it secretly.

     

    When I arrived at my relative’s house without him, they asked in what direction did my uncle go, and set out to get him. As a child I remember how sad and disappointed I felt in my uncle, and all the trouble he was causing our family. As an adult looking back, I know they did what they thought was right out of ignorance and the lack of biblical knowledge.

     

    Interestingly, we find certain of the pro addictions as disease scientists thinking that administering supervised opioid injections to drug addicts is the way to go, despite the fact that carrying out such treatments would violate certain current federal criminal laws. Then there are some former addicts and scientists among others who do not see addictions as either a medical nor mental disorder, but a nasty habit. Many believe that supervised opioid injection treatments will result in chemical lobotomies. Then too there is nothing to prevent those being treated from still using other drugs, as most studies found multi drug usages among many addicts. One might ponder if a government agency funded and sponsored these treatments, which clearly violates current federal laws, would federal sedition laws come into play against them?


    Dearly beloveds, these powerful narcotics are needed to help those who truly suffer from severe pains of certain conditions and diseases, and those at the end of life. They were never meant for the aches and pains that might come with the aging body. We still have a great number of persons of color and poor whites who were not drug dealers, but were found with small amounts of marijuana or drugs on them and got long prison sentences, or a prison record that ruined their lives. This is still going on today. There is little mentioned about setting up a national program to pay the expenses of babies born addicted, and those injured through acts done by those under the influence. There is not one program to teach the addict the truth, that regardless of the treatment given, he or she might still face a long period or a life time of intense craving for the drugs as a consequence self induced addiction. On the horizon are lawsuits being brought against some treatment centers for wrongful death suits. Many are warning that teaching people they are victims can become a self fulfilling prophecy. 

     

    There is nothing in scripture whatsoever, holy brethren, that teaches drunkenness, or a lack of sobriety is a sickness that God heals. Instead, the Bible clearly states that drunkenness/ a lack of sobriety is self-induced. There is nothing spiritual about it. People have the power, responsibility and accountability to cease the practice with or without help or suffer the consequences if they don’t. No one says it is easy to do, nor fast, but God clearly teaches it can be done if a person wants to do it. Certainly, the gentleman who frankly faced up to the truth that he was responsible for ruining his own life proved he was not a victim and had the power of being accountable to get his life back. Jesus Christ is the One all should look to for true life. He is the Supreme Expert on all matters concerning abundant life.

     

    Brothers and sisters, we know without doubt that the worst problem any human being can ever have for all time is to die without Jesus Christ. it would not matter if a person conquered a thousand addictions, or never had an addiction, which is just a fraction of the many sins on eart, God hates all sins. Every human being is born a spiritually dead sinner.  Jesus Christ is the only one who can take away sins and give eternal life. Now is the time to believe the absolute eternal truth of God: Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died on the cross to pay for ALL your sins and rose again. Confess this to Him with your mouth and believe this eternal truth in your heart and He will forgive you of all your sins, save you, fill you with the Holy Spirit, and make you a child of God, delivered from the wrath of God to come. DON’T WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW, TOMORROW MIGHT BE TOO LATE DO IT NOW!!!

    Love
