It's a God Thing

 

A Whole Bible Context

The Bible is one faith message to one body by one God. We gain wisdom and understanding as we read it and let it modify our heart and actions. We encourage believers to see the whole message and take ownership of it.

Our Team

Our team consists of the Head, which is Jesus the Christ; our Father the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the energizer and helper our Holy Spirit; and our brothers and sisters in the body of Christ. Our part of the team is working to get out the message to follow all of God's Word (including the Law) by as many means as we can think of and that are within our power. Currently we have this website with its links and articles, we have a Youtube channel, and we have published a book titled Whole Bible Christianity.

Icthus

We feel the need to get this message out because the usual messengers are falling down on the job. Institutions are less concerned about the Word of God and more concerned with promoting themselves. Many academics are lost in arguments over tiny details and lose sight of the big picture. Pastors, priests and rabbis, while caring in many ways, are shrinking back from boldly proclaiming the Word and holding to it in their own congregations. Social justice, "spiritual but not religious," and "seeker friendly" teachings have replaced both the spirit and the letter of the Word and the fear and love of God.

Whether you need help in deciding where to start with following God or advice on how to implement His living oracles in your life you can find help in our articles, our Youtube videos, and our book Whole Bible Christianity. Or you can contact us directly.

The words of the wise are like goads, and like nails firmly fixed are the collected sayings; they are given by one Shepherd.

 
“…we all need a new sense of respect for the Holy Scripture. Believing it to be the veritable word of God, we must exercise all the human pains possible to keep from overlaying it with a gossamer pattern of our own spinning. In each of those cases where human error enters, divine truth is obscured. Let us then steer a straight course through the Holy Bible, neither turning to the left side of heresy nor to the right side of unbridled imagination.” Bernard Ramm
The Law of Christ
The Law of Christ

It is obvious that the law of Christ is also the law of God. It is the law of God practiced with faith (trust and obedience) in the person of Jesus the Christ. (1 Cor. 9:21)

The Law of the Spirit of Life
Law of the Spirit of Life

This law is also the same as the Law of God. The difference is the Spirit. The Law of God with the Spirit is life (Romans 8:2).

The Law of God

Free RideAll of these terms here are variations on the same thing: The Law of God. God's law is the law of Christ, of the Spirit of life, of Liberty, of Moses, and the Perfect Law. (Romans 7:22)

The Law of Liberty
The Law of Liberty

Surprised that the Law of God is also called the Law of Liberty?  (James 1:25) It is called this because believers who persevere in it are free from sin.

The Law of Moses
The Law of Moses

Humorist Sam Levenson used to say, “Different people look for different things in the Ten Commandments. Some are looking for divine guidance, some for a code of living. But most people are looking for loopholes.” (Hebrews 10:28)

The Perfect Law
The Perfect Law

The Law of Christ, God, Spirit of Life, Liberty and Moses is perfect, still a tutor, living, active and sharper than any two-edged sword. (James 1:25)

lamb for Passover

Ditch the pagan Easter stuff and go with Passover instead! Passover and Unleavened Bread will be Tuesday April 11, 2017 (Sabbath) with the meal on Monday evening April 10. Monday April 17 is the seventh day and also a Sabbath. A traditional eighth day is Tuesday April 18. For the meal we look forward to a lamb barbecue and traditional foods such as cheroseth (apples and cinnamon mostly). We make a fire in our backyard fire ring to burn up leftovers.

Exodus 12 has most of the specifics (discussed in the article) for how to do it, including:

  • eat it in haste, with your staff close at hand
  • burn up the leftover lamb
  • circumcision is required
  • eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs (horseradish)

Pentecost (a Sabbath) will be on Tuesday May 30, 2017. A traditional second day is on Wednesday. This is probably the day Israel received the Law after their delivery from Egypt. It is also the day the Holy Spirit fell on the disciples in power recorded in Acts 2. We bake a couple loaves of leavened bread and read from the Torah.

...and a little child shall lead them.

  • prepare and eat two loaves of leavened bread
  • rest (it's a Sabbath)
  • a suggestion is to read the Law out loud
  • sound the shofar

God gave us the original noisemaker for the feast of Trumpets. It will be on Thursday September 21, 2017 (a Sabbath). Also called Yom Teruah (day of the awakening blast) and Rosh Hashanah (head of the year) it is a warning to wake up before the great and terrible day of Atonement or Yom Kippur. It is said that there is an open door in heaven, waiting for the repentant person to enter. It is a time of sweetness, symbolized by eating fun things like apples and honey or our favorite caramel apples. We have a family meal, blow horns, and have a fire.

Click on the links and you'll learn:

  • about shofars
  • encouragement for making your own traditions
  • what the Bible says about celebrating
  • why Trumpets is also called the Day of the Awakening Blast

atonement

You might not believe it, but Atonement, or Yom Kippur is also jammed full of blessings. We afflict ourselves by fasting, which might not sound like fun, but through it we not only do what Jesus says in love, He meets with us in our affliction. The (not feast) day (a little joke there) will be on Saturday September 30, 2017. It is a Great Sabbath, meaning no work of any kind, even that of meal preparation. Click the link for the article.

In the article link above you'll learn the basic requirements, but we also suggest:

  • no eating for those who are not infirm or young, no electronics
  • blowing shofars
  • deep prayer and Bible reading
  • having a meal at a restaurant to break the fast

kids tent set up for tabernacles

Tabernacles, which we also call God's camping trip, starts on Thursday October 5, 2017 (Sabbath) and ends on Thursday October 12, 2017 (a Sabbath). We pitch a tent in our back yard and sleep in it every night. Click the link for the article.

Checkout the links here and you'll learn about:

  • pitching a tent for camping with God
  • waving sweet smelling branches
  • celebrating with joy

A day off

We're not really sure why so many people have a problem with Sabbath, or A Day Off. It is a huge blessing given to us by our Father way back in the Garden, before the Fall. So the first Sabbath was in the Garden, when there was no sin. Obviously, God wanted us to take some time off and visit with Him. Many, many people, mostly in the church, have a problem with this, insisting that "every day is a Sabbath" but they don't rest and they don't take the time for God (church is not that same as personal time with God). Happily for us, we don't have to pay attention to lawless philosophies of men.

Checkout the link below and you'll learn:

  • that it's okay for believers to take a day off with God
  • Bible background for Sabbath
  • It's not a Jewish thing, it's not a Gentile thing. It's a God thing.

Living Quotes

I will multiply your offspring as the stars of heaven and will give to your offspring all these lands. And in your offspring all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because Abraham obeyed my voice and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

– God. From Genesis 26:4–5 ESV

For this commandment that I command you today is not too hard for you, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will ascend to heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ But the word is very near you. It is in your mouth and in your heart, so that you can do it.

– God. From Deuteronomy 30:11–14 ESV

There shall be one law for the native and for the stranger who sojourns among you.

– God. From Exodus 12:49 ESV

One law and one rule shall be for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you.

– God. From Numbers 15:16 ESV

You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.

– God. From Leviticus 19:15 ESV

You shall not go around as a slanderer among your people, and you shall not stand up against the life of your neighbor: I am the LORD.

– God. From Leviticus 19:16 ESV

You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but you shall reason frankly with your neighbor, lest you incur sin because of him.

– God. From Leviticus 19:17 ESV

You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.

– God. From Leviticus 19:18 ESV

1. I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.

– God. From Exodus 20:2–3 ESV

2. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

– God. From Exodus 20:4-6 ESV

3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.

– God. From Exodus 20:7 ESV

4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

– God. From Exodus 20:8-11 ESV

5. Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.

– God. From Exodus 20:12 ESV

6. You shall not murder.

– God. From Exodus 20:13 ESV

7. You shall not commit adultery.

– God. From Exodus 20:14 ESV

8. You shall not steal.

– God. From Exodus 20:15 ESV

9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

– God. From Exodus 20:16 ESV

10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.

– God. From Exodus 20:17 ESV

"Atheism turns out to be too simple."

– C. S. Lewis.

“We find the most terrible form of atheism, not in the militant and passionate struggle against the idea of God himself, but in the practical atheism of everyday living, in indifference and torpor. We often encounter these forms of atheism among those who are formally Christians.”

– Nicolai A. Berdyaev

“Different people look for different things in the Ten Commandments. Some are looking for divine guidance, some for a code of living.  But most people are looking for loopholes.”

– Humorist Sam Levenson

“To the captious spirit, predisposed to find and magnify difficulties in the divine revelation, the biblical discrepancies will be great stumblingblocks, and occasions of disobedience and cavil. But to the serious inquirer, who desires to “know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven” (Matt. xiii, 11), a faithful study of these discrepancies will disclose hidden harmonies and undesigned coincidences which will convince him that these multiform Scriptures are truly the word of God.”

Milton S. Terry

“…we all need a new sense of respect for the Holy Scripture. Believing it to be the veritable word of God, we must exercise all the human pains possible to keep from overlaying it with a gossamer pattern of our own spinning. In each of those cases where human error enters, divine truth is obscured. Let us then steer a straight course through the Holy Bible, neither turning to the left side of heresy nor to the right side of unbridled imagination.”
