  • God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son

      I was reading the post this morning, and wanted to put my thoughts on paper about God and his son Jesus Christ. I hope y'all don't mind my sharing. If anyone has anything to add please do so. I pray we all can come to a better understanding! Excuse any bad punctuation. I was just writing as I was thinking.

      God had a plan or idea=father
      Idea into existence human Jesus=son

      Prophecy fulfilled which proves God is true. Man cannot save himself, and needed to be shown the way to true life. This is the role that Jesus was created for as a servant.

      God is thought idea mind
      Jesus is word body
      Spirit is breath

      Man has a body
      " Spirit
      ". Breath of life. (We aren't God)

      What if there is another reality-spiritual realm-man cannot see this but he can think about it, which we are told to to think about spiritual things and not things of this world. God is spirit and man cannot see spirit as we are still in the human realm and in a body. God has reached thru this barrier many times in the past as the scriptures attest. He chose this last age to reach thru by a mediator who has been given all authority, because he, Jesus, is the image of God. He would be what God would look like if he had a body.

      Perhaps the conflict comes from the nature of Jesus. If we think about when our parents conceive us as children. Who puts the spirit inside that baby? That would be God. He also sparks this breath of life. The miraculous birth of Jesus is not a sexual act, but an act of creation. This is the miracle! Mary was a vessel, but God sparked the birth, a fully human baby, using Mary's seed as a genetic relative of Abraham. Who grows and experiences the same human frailties that we do, yet remains sinless. How can you know what someone suffers, unless you walk in their shoes? This is a lesson to us on empathy. How can we complain about our life when there is always someone else who has suffered worse. We show the kingdom inside of us when we can serve and have empathy with others who are less fortunate.

      Jesus is fully human, and he has a spirit. We must always keep in mind that he came as a servant to mankind, and was crucified, but the spirit never dies. Just as when we die, our flesh goes to dust, but our spirit returns to God in the spiritual realm. Perhaps this realm in actuality is side by side with ours. Kind of like a parallel universe? Jesus came to show us as the mediator between man and God. He is now in a spiritual form, we can't see, but we know He is real, and He cares for his flock of lost spirits. Our commission is to grow the kingdom, and search out those who believe, and God will give the increase of knowledge when those souls are ready to receive it! This is the faith hope and charity we should be teaching to others!

      I also wanted to add that in the physical realm things work by certain laws, but perhaps in the spiritual realm those laws are not the same and in this realm, earth, we can only imagine how things operate in the spiritual, due to the limitations of our bodies.

    ...........................THE BOOK

    What Happened at the Madison Church of Christ?


    There are thousands of churches being taken over across America.

    This book is only about one of those churches. It's about the Madison Church Of Christ. By studying the methods used here along with the resource references you might be able to inoculate your church. At the very least you will recognize the signs early on.

    Many of the current members of the Madison Church of Christ still don't know what happened.
    Some never will know! This book is for them as well.

    Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ.

    It thrived for many years on the vision of it's elders and those of it's ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ.

    At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm.

    They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ.

    The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late.....

    At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off so new techniques could be used to go out and reach the unchurched through new "Contemporary Holy Entertainment" methods developed by the "Community Church Movement"

    Old members had to be kept on board long enough to get their plans ready, or the funds would not be there to pay for the new building. So by the plans very nature, it had to be secret.

    The church had no plan in effect to renew or approve elders. There was never any need. The elders had always been "as approved by God". 10 of the last 15 elders would begin to shed some doubt on that.

    The Elders did not even need a majority at first, because some of the elders went along unwittingly.

    This edition starts shortly after some of the members begin to smell something strange in January 2001. Later editions may go back and fill in some of the timeline.

    To even start to understand whats happening here, you must read the background materials in the first of the book.

    This is only the first edition, and not the end. New editions will be printed as needed. To keep abreast of current changes, please visit our web site; http://www.concernedmembers.com/madison

    Here is the list of players;

    5 Godly Elders
    10 Not so Godly Elders
    120 "Deacons" (allegiance unknown)
    2,800 - 4,000 church "members"
    2 "teners" (people who have publicly confessed to have broken all ten commandments)
    Unknown number of "sinners" (This is what the 10 elders call us.)
    Unknown number of "demons" (Flying everywhere, to many to count)
