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.

Would you celebrate Christmas if you knew that.... Charlene Bishop

The Moabites were worshippers of the God of prosperity, Chesmosh.  It was the same Chesmosh cast iron potbellied god as the Ammonites worshipped – Molech.  They both wore the Phygian cap which was worn by Tammuz and Babylon and later Mithra in Rome.  At the time of the winter solstice, December 25th, they had a public mass, a child mass, mass meaning sacrifice on the winter solstice.  The priests stoked the iron image of the enthroned Chemosh with wood and burning pitch, turning their potbellied god into a cherry red furnace.  People made long lists of their desires and recited them to their god of prosperity just before they put their infant children into the red hot lap of their cherished god with his Phygian cap.  As the babies were incinerated the people in the Dec. 25 child mass were assured that their sacrifice would be rewarded in the coming year.  On the same day south of Israel the Egyptians celebrated their Sun God Ra.  An Egyptian hieroglyph shows Ra castrating himself just as the Greek legend tells of the Greek god Attis performing the same surgery on himself.  Worshippers of Ra would hang gold and silver balls on an upright palm tree as Jeremiah reports it and place their decorated gifts to the sun god under the tree decorated with the gold and silver testicles of Ra.  This main custom was celebrated on the birthday of Ra, December 25th.   When Israel adopted this custom they did this with an evergreen tree which they cut out of the forest and erected it with hammer and nails so that it would not topple over and decorated it with silver and gold balls.  In the 1600’s it was illegal to have a Christmas tree or even or even a Christmas service in America.  The pilgrims knew that it was pure pagan sun god worship.  These are occult practices.  The origins of Christmas are well documented from the Encyclopedia to numerous historical documents.  This particular information I am sharing today was transcribed from a Youtube video by Michael Rood.  I chose it because of the concise manner which he summarizes the reason for the season.


Are you a Scrooge? Charlene Bishop

What makes a person a scrooge?  Does not giving your children a lot of Christmas presents make you a Scrooge?  How about not keeping Christmas, does that make you a scrooge?  If you don't give gifts to employees, parents, and others at Christmas time does that make you a scrooge?  A scrooge is defined as a miserly person, a cheapskate, penny-pincher, tightwad.  I had a call today from a parent who was fighting the feeling of guilt because this year they only had money for two presents for their child.  They wondered why they felt guilty.  Will a lot of gifts fill a child with love?  The most precious gift we can give a child, friend, parent or other loved one is... time.  When there is an occasion where a gift is appropriate why not wrap up a box with a certificate on the inside that requires your time.  If we are honest, we are miserly, a scrooge with our time.  We want to spend our time on things that please us.  How many children, parents, siblings, co-workers feel totally invisible to us?  They don't even rate on our time radar.  What a child really needs is our time, face to face time where we just listen and hear them.  Throwing gifts at a child to satisfy your guilt is damaging.  Wrap up a gift of time.


Perplexing Reaction to Co-Worker Charlene Bishop

I was talking to a co worker yesterday about a young boy that did something wrong and is now in trouble with the law. My co-worker has a personal connection with the victim of this young boy.  When my co worker started crying about the pain the victim was feeling it made me very annoyed.  I was perplexed at why my co workers sensitivity to the victim would cause me to be annoyed.  It bothered me so much it was hard to get to sleep and I woke up thinking about the situation.  I had no peace.  The answer I received is that because there are people in my life who believe I am unworthy of forgiveness it has caused a bitterness in me.  That bitterness and pain in me met the unforgiveness/bitterness my co-worker has for the young boy.  My co-worker believes that because of what this young boy has done he is unworthy of forgiveness just like those in my life believe I am unworthy of forgiveness.  I thank Jesus for the empowerment to lay down the pain of being deemed unworthy of forgiveness, unworthy of compassion, of a new day, of being listened to and heard.  Thank you Jesus that you see me worthy of forgiveness and that You give me a new day.  Thank you Father for blessing that young boy and all individuals involved with the gift of forgiveness so that the destruction can stop now before more are hurt and injured.  Unforgiveness is like you drinking arsenic and then expecting the other person to die.


Power and Protection Charlene Bishop
This last weekend I had the opportunity of being with the youth of our church talking about the up coming Fall Festival.  We learned about the power and protection that these days have brought to God's people throughout the centuries.  Time and time again in the bible we see where God's chosen people prospered when they kept all the commandments, statutes and ordinances of God.  Every time they forgot the law of God and turned to the false gods of the nations around them they fell into slavery.  No different today!  We see God's people again going into slavery.  Our youth were taught the meaning of the word grace from the Ancient Hebrew.  The word is made up of a letter meaning a "pitched tent" or "to camp" and a letter meaning "wall."  The Israelites would set up their tents in a sort of circle and these tents served as "a wall."  Another word from the Parent root is the letter for foot and the letter for wall which is "feast"  The participants of a festival would gather together and dance in a circle.  Additional meanings are  keep, feast, celebrate, dance, holy day, reel to and fro.  Grace is the empowerment these Holy Days bring to us.  Their deep and diverse meanings show the power of God, the plan of God and hope for mankind.  When we keep these days we can boldly stand with Jesus against our enemies because through the Holy Days we learn who Jesus is, what He did for us and in that deeper understanding of our identity in Him we can take the sword of the Word and speak boldly against our enemies.  For information regarding the ancient Hebrew refer to the "Ancient Hebrew" website by Jeff A. Benner.

Child Rearing Lessons Learned Pastor Robert Scott
Child Rearing Lessons Learned

Child Rearing Lessons Learned

 

Andy and Sandra Stanley shared this morning some important child rearing lessons they have learned that transcend the atypical families such as single parents, blended families, or even more unusual families such as mine. After a series of attacks on my finances, I finally was able to be comfortable enough to actually send flowers to my daughter as she turned 34 on August 1, 2014. I haven’t seen her or talked to her in 16 years. God gave me several years to discipline her until the age of 6 (my son 3), when I was attacked with a mental illness after I almost died of Legionnaire’s disease in 1986. I lacked oxygen on the brain and was mercifully spared when my former wife was told I had 3 hours to live. Jesus can redeem anything, and He is in the process of redeeming this situation, slowly but surely. He can redeem any family problem you have. Andy and Sandra admitted their mistakes, and they shared what they have learned about child rearing.

 

Two passages from Proverbs 22 come to mind: “Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; the rod of discipline will remove it far from him.” That’s verse 15, and verse 6 says: “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” The word train here means “teach his palate” or give him a taste (for God).

 

Andy shared the four stages of child rearing:

 

1.     0-5—Discipline

2.     5-12‑ Training

3.     12-18—Coaching

4.     18+—Friendship

 

The idea is that you must start early with discipline, because it doesn’t work later. Some situations require miracles from Jesus when mistakes have been made. I am now healed and whole, yet there is a limit to what I can do. Jesus must do a lot to redeem an atypical situation.

 

Andy also shared the three major areas that aren’t negotiable with children. They must always be corrected, even though your children will only thank you much later:

 

1.     Disobedience

2.     Dishonesty

3.     Disrespect

 

Later is longer, as Andy said, and the temptation is to withhold discipline since our society is no longer a “Leave it to Beaver” or “Father Knows Best” society, but one that sees discipline, especially spanking, as child abuse. But godly parents will wisely and discreetly discipline their small children because God holds them responsible, not society and the prevailing culture.

We pray that those who can still have the opportunity to follow these guideline will do so, and those who can’t will trust our Father in heaven to father our children, even those who are grown.

 

Remember to always pray for your children, using the prayers we publish on our freedomtruthseekers.com web site. Prayers make us realize that our Father is the ultimate Parent who watches over our children, and will one day bring them back to our open arms as God prophesies (Isa. 49:25; Isa. 60:9; Isa. 43:5-6).
