Return to the Father's Heart
So the Earth Will Survive
Robert B. Scott

Return to the Father’s Heart

This crucial book will pave the way for the of coming Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6, who is prophesied to bring today’s absent fathers toward their neglected or jettisoned children and bring the heart of believers back to their Father in heaven. The book offers a solution to a pervasive problem among men today: their inability to forgive abusive fathers. This modern-day Elijah will “restore all things” (Mat. 17:11), including the true gospel of the Kingdom or Family of God, revealing the dangerous error of the grace revolution leading to the appearance of the man of lawlessness, an evil leader who will fight the second coming of Jesus.

Why Does God Heal? Pastor Robert Scott

 Our new radio series on freedomtruthseekers.com has an unusual title: “Help Me! God Hasn’t Healed Me?” We have a book with a similar title: Why Doesn’t God Heal Me? God inspired that title for the same reason He gave us the title of this radio series: that’s the question God’s people are asking. God wants us to know the answer to another question, a better one: Why does God heal me?

Why do we ask the first question, a negative one? The reason is that most Christians don’t truly believe that God is who and what He says He is in 1 John 4:8. He is Love. That’s His name – Agape in Greek.

He does everything out of love. Why does He heal? He heals because He loves, because He is Love. But most Christians feel betrayed by God. They have not seen the healing Jesus paid for 2000 years ago manifested in their bodies. They see the Father God as a cruel God who smites people in what they see as the Old Testament. The Father God is supposed to me the God of the Old Testament, which He is not (John 1:1-18). They even see Jesus rebelling against the cruelty of His Father and coming to show love and kindness in the New Testament that the Father did not display in the Old. 

What a lie! It was none other than Jesus who spoke with men in the First Testament (1Cor. 10:4). He was the Rock and He was and is the Word who came to reveal the Father.

If people realized who Jesus is by reading the First Testament, they would understand that while He is Love like His Father, He is not mocked (Gal. 6:7). We reap what we sow.

Remember that Jesus said that if we loved Him, we would keep His commandments (John 14:15). And He would only require us to put in practice that which He has revealed to us (James 4:17; John 9:41).

The first step in receiving our healing is to know that God heals because He loves. He loves us. He gave Jesus to die for us, to suffer for us (John 3:16; Isaiah 53).

He expects us to reciprocate, to give the love He gave us back to Him – in obedience. And that obedience is not by our might, but by His grace.

When we know what to do and don’t do it, when we know what not to do and do it anyway without confessing the sin and turning from it, we are not fulfilling our part of the covenants we have with God. It takes two to make and keep a covenant.

The covenant promises are conditional upon our keeping of our part. God’s love is the only thing that is unconditional. His covenants are not.

If we have not seen the healing produced in our bodies, how can we blame God? He is perfect in His keeping of His side of the covenant.

If we stay trusting Him and remain in thanksgiving for the healing, He will show us where we have fallen short of keeping our part of the covenant.

Everyone is different, and among the many possibilities, maybe only one or two apply to us. And even if we are not keeping every law perfectly, if our hearts are right, and we are ready to change when we understand, our healing will not be hindered.

People who have been deceived by legalism see legalism in the hindrances of the book we published as legalism, because they don’t understand who God is. He is Love. But He is not a pushover. He requires that we do our part and obey. Jesus said it in both Testaments. He hasn’t changed.

Keep thanking God that He is Love and that the manifestation of healing is on the way, and He will reveal to you what is hindering your healing, and it’s not Him – it’s you. As He changes you to be more like Him, you will see the healing manifest, and then you will be thankful for what He has done, not for what He promised to do.

Don’t be discouraged. Study God’s Word to discover Him and His love. As you persevere in thanksgiving, you may wake up one morning totally healed. Look forward and thank God for that day. Staying in praise and thanks speeds up the manifestation of the healing. Get to know your Father Love, Jesus your Brother Love, and the Holy Spirit, your Comforter of love, and soon you will see with your eyes that our Father is indeed Love and that Jesus is indeed a Healing Savior.

We plan to continue next time with 2012, but we thought you might need some encouragement, including these identity verses that accent the truth that our God is Love.

II Corinthians 5:21 He made Him [Jesus] who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

I am no longer a sinner, so I have ceased saying that lie that so many Christians speak because of deception. Jesus took my sin on Him on the cross. He has taken my sin and given me His righteousness. Wow! What a deal! That’s divine exchange. God My Father looks at me like I am Jesus. That’s how righteous I am. I am as righteous as Jesus! It’s not mine; it’s His! I reject any curses from people who try to remind me of sins of the past that God has forgotten, and I remind myself that Jesus has given me the gift of His righteousness.

Zechariah 2:8 For thus says the [Eternal] of hosts, “After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of his eye.”

In the conceptual Hebrew, when God says we are the apple of His eye (also in Psalm 17:8), He is saying, like a proud father, “That’s my boy! That’s my son! That’s my daughter! I’m so proud he or she is My son/daughter.” As our Father told Jesus before He did any mighty work, “You are My Son, in whom I am well pleased!”


More on 2012 and Some Encouragement Pastor Robert Scott

For those of you who have never experienced the joy of Passover, it is indeed a blessing. This evening of April 18 this year will be my forty first Passover. You can sure tell Satan does not like the joy and freedom of this most joyous of God's feast days. He likes to pour on the trials before the Passover. I was reading, however, an encouraging verse today, taken from the psalm we used to be free from rejection in Peace or Rejection — You Choose.

It's Psalm 31. In verse 21 David says that Jesus "has made marvelous His lovingkindness to me in a besieged city." Sometimes it feels like we are in a city that is being attacked from all sides. But Jesus is always with us to bless us even in that siege. He said that He would take our hand and lead us through the valley of the shadow of death (Ps. 23:4).And He said we didn't need to fear any evil or bad circumstance, whether before the Passover, or even as all hell begins to break loose in late 2012.

We can have peace, even joy, amid the storm. Remember how Jesus was sleeping in the boat while his frantic disciples panicked? He's at the helm of our boat, even in rocky seas, and we're going to be the ones resting with and in Him as the seas get more and more turbulent. With that in mind, let's look at what Job wrote about these times to come.

Job spoke out positive and negative words that prophesied, even caused, major events to occur throughout history. His words opened the door for abortion, the shedding of innocent blood that was legalized in 1972, a cause that will bring an effect in December, 2012. Those same words, in their positive aspect of prophecy, will allow you and your family to have that which is not of Jesus “aborted” from your life so you can be ready for 2012 and beyond, protected in God’s arms of love. That’s good news, and there’s more to come to counterbalance the negative aspect of 2012.

While we don’t pretend to be the prophesied Elijah to come in the last days, as John the Baptist did to prepare the way before Jesus at His first coming, we believe we come in the same spirit. We have an anointing expressed in Isaiah 58 and 59:1-3 to cry aloud and show people their sins, warning them of the consequences, such as those coming in 2012, and bringing truth that sets God’s own people free (John 8:32). In that sense we are helping by God’s grace “to make ready a people prepared for [Jesus]” (Luke 1:17).
 
If you want to be prepared for 2012 and “have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36), you need to understand both the warnings and the encouragement in the amazing prophesies of Job.
 
Job’s words, when understood in conceptual Hebrew as they are correctly translated, have much to do with what will happen on December 21, 2012.
 
We have not understood the nature of the conceptual Hebrew. I lived in France and Quebec for 15 years, and I learned that French was as linear a language as English, even though at times one word can mean three things. The word serviette can mean napkin, towel, or briefcase, according to the context in which you use it. But biblical Hebrew (not modern Hebrew that is more like Yiddish) is much broader as a language. One word can have as many as 60 meanings! And when you think of the number of words in one verse and the number of or lack of other words that qualify or alter the meaning of each of the other words, you can understand why we could write a number of whole books on Job.
 
In Job 3:16 Job spoke out and thus prophesied the spirit of abortion (some translations use the word), opening the door to the alarming increase of abortion in the last days, since His words transcended time.
 
God calls the shedding of innocent blood an abomination (Prov. 6:16-17), in what could be more innocent than a little baby in the womb. Jesus prophesied the last days would be like the days of Noah (Mat. 24:37), a time of great violence and shedding of innocent blood. In fact, since God gave mankind dominion over the Earth, in order to move in the Earth He needs a righteous man to speak out the right words. Job’s words even gave God permission to abort man’s violence by the Flood.
 
 Many misunderstand the truth that God’s judgment is most often a matter of cause and effect. Sin brings that results. The law of sowing and reaping explains much of the misery of mankind. The shedding of innocent blood brings a serious “bloodguiltiness” (Deut. 21:8) and defiles the land.
 
 Jesus spoke of the generation that would see all of these end-time events and implied that they would see the end of this age (Mat. 24:32-34). The biblical generation is normally considered to be 40 years. Forty is also the number of the trial and judgment of man, as witnessed by Jesus’ 40-day fast and Israel’s 40 years of wandering in which most were judged unworthy to enter the Promised Land.
 
These two factors weigh heavily in what is about to happen in 2012. Courts decided in late 1972 (decision officially rendered in the first days of the next year) in our Western world that abortion should be legalized. Such an abomination brought a curse upon the nations that made such a decision. End-time events began to accelerate at the same time as this violence began to occur. This cause will bring the effect that will begin to be felt in late December of 2012. Judgment comes automatically because of the law of sowing and reaping.
 
Next time we will see more of the negative impact of Job’s words, but we will also begin to see that those same words will actually help us to escape the worst of what is to come soon…
 
America signed its death warrant as a nation in legalizing abortion in early 1973 (only a month shy of 40 years later judgment would begin to come, beginning December 21, 2012). Repentance could have changed that, but God gave them seven days in addition to all those years between that fatal day of September 11, 2001 until the Day of Trumpets on September 18, 2001 to repent. It didn’t happen.
 
Our Western, Anglo-Saxon nations were called by God to be godly nations that would spread His truth to the world, but just the opposite has occurred. We have abandoned God and spread filth to the world. It’s “game over” for America.
 
It is not, however, over for those God is calling to be a part of a great end-time harvest. And for us whom He has called or is calling, Job’s words have good news for us.
 
Jesus set Satan up to test Job, knowing that words would come out of his mouth that would give Jesus permission to both allow Satan to test God’s people and at the same time allow Jesus to defeat Satan and cause His people to defeat him.
 
How could this happen? Job’s words of abortion gave God permission to abort those few who would permanently turn away from Him after being enlightened, but also to abort the sins and bad habits in the lives of believers through the pruning process of John 15.
 
When we stay close and strongly attached to Jesus, the Vine, we bear fruit. This allows the Vinedresser, our Father Love, to prune us so that we “bear more fruit” (John 15:1-2).
 
This might be a good time to get out our Bibles and read aloud John 15. Reading out loud activates almost all the senses and has a way of causing the words we read to enter out hearts. If you choose to do this, it will prepare you for next time, when we will discuss some of the principles embodied in John 15, and more. See you next time. Have a blessed day!
 
PS Here are some more identity inJesus verses...
 
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in [some translations say, the faith of the Son of God] the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
 
Wow! Jesus loved me enough to die for me so that He could live in me and do His works of faith in and through me. I can do nothing without Him. I have stopped trying to do things in my strength. Jesus is my strength.
 
Ephesians 2:4-5 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in transgression, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
 
My Father Love loves me so much that He gave Jesus so He could have me as His son/daughter. I was born dead in sin because of what Adam did, but when I accepted Jesus, He gave me the seed of life, which begins to germinate when I bury my old self in baptism by immersion. What’s more, my spirit is now alive in Jesus. So the real me was raised with Jesus when He was resurrected, and I sit beside Him in heaven, looking down on Satan, the demons, and all my circumstances. In my dominion covenant with my Father in heaven, we rule from our heavenly position, changing facts by speaking out the truth of God’s Word.

No Need to Fear 2012 Pastor Robert Scott

 I'm Pastor and Author Robert B. Scott of Freedom Church of God in Edmonton, Alberta, and this blog is only a foretaste of our book about 2012. God has blessed us with powerful revelation in four other books from which we will share truths that are life-changing -- truths that will prepare you for what is about to break out on the world scene, truths that will set you free (John 8:32).

 
The truth will surprise you. While the Bible does not use the exact phrase, 2012 – Death, Disaster, Destruction, our working title, prophecies in Job, Daniel, Revelation, and the Gospels give specific pronouncements about this time.
 
Problem is, Bible students and teachers alike have failed to understand these prophecies, probably for two main reasons.
 
First, they have not obeyed what the Bible says, while God makes it clear that only those who obey have a good understanding (Ps.111:10). In fact, one of the Ten Commandments that has been overlooked by the Christian world is a major key to understanding God's Word. This breakthrough knowledge is revealed in Bible Code Broken —The Truth about the Christian Sabbath.
 
Second, most scholars neither grasp the conceptual nature of Bible languages nor realize the “a little here, a little there” principle (Isa. 28:10,13). In other words, the Bible is like a puzzle. To put the pieces together it is necessary to find them in different places in the Bible. One verse will explain another, and the whole Bible must be considered, not just the New Testament. Furthermore, going along with what we stated above about obedience, how can we understand the whole Word of God if we don't seek God's help in living by every word as Jesus commanded (Mat. 4:4)?
 
Because God knew Adam would give Satan the permission to rule the age of man, and He could call only a few now, He wrote the Bible “through stammering lips and a foreign tongue” (Isa. 28:11) so that most would “stumble backward” over His Word (28:13). In the same manner the living Word, Jesus (John 1:1-18) became a stumbling block to most people (I Pet. 2:8).
 
Placing precious truths in different places in the Bible, requiring a piecing together of the puzzle, was another way God made sure only the few He called now would understand. And a full grasp of the Scripture would only come to those few serious believers who allowed Jesus or Grace in them to obey the laws of love, including the test commandment revealed in the book referenced above.
 
That’s why what you read in this blog may be surprising to you, since most pastors and churches today are either blissfully or willingly ignorant of the key that opens up the Bible, including prophecy. So we invite you to “prove all things” and hold a steady grip on the truths you prove to be true by seeing it in the Word (I Thes. 5:21).
 
Not every truth, however, is plainly evident due to the corrupt translations, which God also foreknew would occur and would fit into His wise plan, calling a few now to rule with Jesus for a thousand years when He returns, and all who have ever lived to be resurrected after the Millennium (Rev. 20:5 and nearly 700 verses prove that encouraging truth). They too will know Jesus at that time and be in the Family of God.
 
Next time we will explore some of those less evident truths, truths from one of the most neglected and misunderstood books in the Bible, the book of Job, a major prophetic book that speaks of what will happen in 2012. We don’t believe you will read anything like this elsewhere. We look forward to discussing the book of Job together and sharing revelation that brings freedom.
 
Before we go, however, we would like to add to this blog an important pathway to freedom for 2012 and beyond, our identity in Jesus. Technical problems have delayed putting these identity verses on our website, so we decided to treat our blog followers to these freedom-bringing passages. We add a short explanation after the verse. Meditate on these identity in Jesus Scriptures until next time and stay tuned to more exciting revelation about these last days in which we li ve…
 
Romans 8:1-2 Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
 
By the blood of Jesus I am free! I am free from the slavery of sin, from condemnation, guilt, and shame. I am free from the ways and effects of death. I have life in Jesus!
 
Galatians 1:10 For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.
 
I have ceased being a people pleaser. I am a God-pleaser.
