Pastor Charles Garcia teaches these basics that are juxtaposed to traditional beliefs and the truth about Muslims is clarified.
I need to say something I want everyone to hear. Regarding the tiny few comments I see, what is your purpose? I think they are either Muslims, Muslim sympathizers, so called liberals, or so called progressives that got their sensibilities offended. Negative comments will not make any difference. It will not change the message nor will it make it go away. This is not one man's opinion. This is not my opinion. It's a bible. I teach from the bible and I'm never going to stop doing that.
Truth be known I presented last week's message with kids gloves because the literal translation of Genesis 16 word translates "wild man" that Ishmael is going to be is from the Hebrew word Pere and that means wild ass. Wild donkey and willful. So Ishmael to where it was applied and therefore his descendants will be willful willful wild ass of a man fighting with everyone. Everybody fighting with him and fighting among his brethren.
Unless you think I just picked Israel or rather Ishmael to pick on, Muslims themselves say they descended from Ishmael. That is not my interpretation. Also one of the best loved all inclusive books in the bible is Romans. I want you to go with me to Romans 9 and get ready to get knocked off your feet.
The subject here which I will prove out as we go along is those two sons that Abraham had one born after human effort or after the flesh and one born miraculously after the promise by Sarah. Let's go to verse 6 about halfway through it it says…
6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
Now listen carefully and zero in here, That is they which are children of the flesh and who is that? Ishmael. Human effort. Hagar. Human effort. Fleshly.
8 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.
Let that soak in. I feel compelled and urged in my spirit to teach the truth of God's word with the little time that's left to us and the devil has pulled the whole world off track trying to be good…or at least more good than bad to make it in.
All religions and all philosophies say the same thing. You live a good life and you'll make it in or you'll get a better life next round. Christianity. True Christianity says something else. God's looking for trust and faith. Not good behavior. Now there is nothing wrong with good behavior. That is not where the emphasis goes. It goes on trust and faith.
We are to be running this race with courage looking on in on to the or unto the author and finisher of faith. You do that and God will put Jesus' righteousness in you and he sees to everything else. Now the bare bone basics faith is what saves you. Faith is what gets you in. Faith is what carries you through and faith is what takes you home but faith is more than just simple belief. Faith comes from the Greek word pisteuo which means action and that's the emphasis here action. That's based on belief sustained by confidence that God will do what he said.
You act on God's word claiming his promises that apply to your situation and stand on that instead of what you see. Works do not apply. Anything that is not of faith is sins. Sin comes from the Greek word hamartia and that means falling short. God's standard as the song says as perfection. Nothing less will do and a miss is as good as a mile. That's why God sent his son. (AN: He said SENT!!!! Like how I remember in John 3:16! ) Indeed the law in the book of Colossians is referred to as ordinances which are laws and regulations and it says it is contrary against us and against us and that Jesus took it out of the way and nailed it to the cross.
The law died for those in faith when Jesus died on the cross. Now let's go quickly to Colossians. I want you to see these things for yourself because they fly in the face of traditions but it's Gods truth. The bare bones of God's truth. Colossians about half way through or as I should say Colossians 2 about half way through the 13 verse it says…
13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
Laws. Regulations. Behavior. Thanks be to God that he did this for us. He also goes on in the book of Galatians to point out that the law was our schoolmaster (schoolmaster???) held up there above us to show God's standard again which is perfection and is put up there literally to drive us to Jesus Christ. Go to Galatians 3 starting in verse 22…
22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
You can't earn it. Don't deserve it. It's a gift. Might be given them and it says believe that's translating the word poseo that Dr. Scott coined a verb out of an English faith he added an 'e' on the end of it to them that faith.
23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
That means the law had an end point.
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
AN: Schoolmaster? That's clearly a Mandela Effect and shouldn't be here. Pastor Charles Garcia would have spotted this right away but it also looks like this video has been changed supernaturally since it has been put up on you-tube in 2016.
Number 1 was nailed to his cross and died with him. Number 2 we're no longer under the law. Law gone. Now in Romans 7 it asks who shall deliver me from this death because you do what you don't want to do and you don't do what you want to. Who shall deliver me from this death and it answers you it says Jesus Christ. Then it goes on to say there's therefore no condemnation to them who are in Jesus Christ. I want you to see this for yourself because there's something very important here in Romans 7. Verse 24.
24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
Because they know they cannot do the law. They cannot do it. They cannot do what they would do. They do what they won't do what they wouldn't do. They're going to get death. Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? Then it goes on to say…
25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
Then Chapter 8. Then remember in the original there is no chapter and verse. It goes right on but we'll say to give you a starting point here Chapter 8 it says…
8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Now you notice it goes on to say who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. Well that phrase is not in the original manuscripts. You can just picture some self-righteous monk or priest going oh well you can't walk after the flesh you have to walk after the spirit. No that's not what the Apostle Paul said. It said There's therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus period.
So much for the law. So much for behavior. Likewise the Beatitudes that Jesus preached on Sermon on the Mount. Best example is in Matthew 5. We're not going there. Jot it down. Matthew 5. It also appears in the other synoptic Gospels in searching for searching for references we find six or eight opinions and theories. I ascribe or we ascribe here to what Martin Luther said. Martin Luther was the great reformer that started the protestant church. So did the Apostle Paul who wrote two thirds of the new testament. So did my mentor Dr. Jean Scott. One of the greatest Bible scholars. I think the greatest in the past century and one understood so did Jesus. So we're in good company and that is that it is a set of goals that is impossible to attain.
Now. Off the internet analysis and interpretation there's at least 36 different interpretations regarding the message of the sermon on the mount. Divided into eight categories and these are for example. 1. The predominant medieval view that applies to the clergy. Let's jump to number six to see how wild they can get. Schweitzer's view of an imminent eschatology referring to an interim ethic and I wrote in the margin…what?
Number 2 in these theories and opinions is Luther's view. 2. Represents an impossible demand like the law of Moses. So like I said before we're in good company. Now once you understand and recognize these bare bones truths you'll be less likely to be affected by CERN and by the Mandela Effect and by whatever satan and his cohorts are trying to do indeed we all know we've been taught in Isaiah 18 it teaches us the United States of America just jot this down will never be defeated all the way to the end. Along with that Jeremiah 51 it says that Israel which means the tribes of Israel which includes America, Britain, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, it says we are to be God's Battle-axe…his gift to Mount Zion to mop up the floor with his enemies.
My God can do anything. In spite of what satan and his cohorts and the Illuminati and Obama and their cohorts are trying to present a picture that this nation is going down and being destroyed. My God can do anything.
Now President Obama and Henner Hillary Clinton won't do that. Donald Trump just might and that's my message tonight.
Now that closing statement that President Obama and Hillary Clinton won't do it but Donald Trump just might is not a political statement. That was speculation based upon scripture and prophecy. All we have to do is keep on walking in faith.
