Tijuana Mexico letter November 2019

I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. DANIEL 9:1

 

There is not a lot of Mexico news to write. I did have a really big heartbreaking event occur to me that some may laugh at my pain.   Briefly, most know that I love Thanksgiving time more than any other time of the year. I have written about having big dinners in Mexico with maybe 6 or more Turkeys, Ham, and all the fixings.  Well, this year I planned again.   But my freezer in Mexico that my grandmother bought me when out when I was away.  I lost the turkeys, special hams, and worst my leg of lamb.  Well, this is a painful event for me.  The whole dinner was spoiled.  And what a stink it was to open the door of the freezer.  Anyways no Thanksgiving dinner this year in Tijuana. It seems really like a sad day. And it is for me. But the Lord had a better plan.

 

My wife’s sisters and brothers in the Mexico State of Guadalajara ( The State famous for the home of Speedy Gonzales the fastest mouse in all Mexico, from the  Bugs Bunny cartoons)  and Sinaloa Mexico. When they heard no dinner in Tijuana they were delighted and insisted we will visit them for Thanksgiving dinner for us.   This will be a whole new experience for us to go very far south into Mexico and see how real Mexico is really.   But I still will miss not making dinner for all our church friends. So, what was a superficially miserable event to me, is turning out to be exciting and great anticipation to my Patty and the boys and they have longed to visit that part of Mexico for years. Patty has not been to see her family in over 25 years.

 

Now on the important eternal questions. The burden of my heart has been, what is, and how to find the will of God. If you met me in 1984 or 1985 you would have found a teenager consumed in finding the perfect Will of God.  And you would have found a stressed, confused, and anxious teenager. This was the consuming desire of my heart and it still is to this day.

 

To me, determining and finding the Will of God is one of the most difficult and subjective themes for a child of God.

 

Now I will make this statement.  Today as I write this letter.  I believe I am in the perfect will of God. Yet my life is not what I want, I am fatigued, flustered, confused. And I can’t help my feelings as many times I wonder.  But I have  been down that road too many times. But using the comparison of the story when Pilgrim’s  name was changed to Christian. He kept on the path and looked for the Celestial City. No more looking back.

 

But today I am down perplexed. Yet I have such a clam peace that passes the understanding that God is on His throne and has a plan and purpose yet to be revealed. I have no physical proof  but I just have hope.

 

And I am so miserably tired, but absolutely at peace with my Savior who loves me and is the Captain of our soul.   I am more curious than a baby kitten playing with some moving object as to what his next step is for my family.   I have no concerns or worries about it. Yet I do not have a clue what I am to do.  And there is not much on a human side I can do even if I had a plan.  Oh, there are many things I want to do, but not a clue what to do about them. My longing is to go back and live 100% in Tijuana as we did before mom died. But that is not possible yet.

 

And why do not fear and dread this serious lack of knowing what to do? In fact, I could not care less right now. Although I am extremely curious.  It is because it is a common problem in the Word of God.

 

In 1985 I was the most miserable teenager longing for the will of God.

I tried going to lunch with Pastors, Missionaries, books and exhausted the subject. All who tried to help me.

 

My final searched ended with my going to hear J. Vernon McGee preach at a conference near me. After the service, I waited and came to him and very briefly told him my problem.  He as only he could say with his Texas accent in front of everyone.   “Young man, you want God to give you a map and scroll with what to do each day and you just follow the little map, Well, young man, the Lord is not going to do that for you”

 

I don’t remember what else he said, but that hit the nail on the head. I have found after all these years that Bother McGee was  correct.  I walked away that night in 1984 still not knowing the will of God. But I had  the Peace of God to trust the Lord.  And as always, curious as to what God had for me. But at peace in my heart.

 

I am not going to write a long letter on what I learned over the years, but since I am in the same state of not knowing as I was in 1994 in High School.   I desire to share one point from the Book of Daniel.

 

Daniel the prophet of God was still an active  student in study of the Word of God.   As quoted in Daniel 9:1.

 

In Daniel 9:1 he learned and received a “revelation” of God.   He read and understood the plan, purpose, and will of God. In this case that God had limited the judgment of Israel to 70 years of Babylon captivity.  Now he must have done the math and knew it was coming to an end.

So now he needs a ILLUMINATION of this great revelation he learned.

He knew the will and plan of God.  But he was as blank and my mind was as to how it applied to him and everything he knew.

 

So here is the secret to finding the will of God. Daniel found it.  George Müller of Bristol England used it to the extraordinary glory of God.  And it is what I long to process.   And it is so simple  but has been deluded by the Church when the Churches began to follow the counsel of the ungodly.

 

From Daniel 9:4-20  He set his face to pray. And he concluded this short and to the point prayer:

 

O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name. O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.

 

And when he was done speaking. The answer he needed, his Illumination was there waiting to explain the plan of God.

 

Now no angel has ever appeared to George Muller, or Hudson Taylor as far as I know. Yet these men had the power of God resting on their lives and they also struggled at times to know the will of God.  Muller wrote books on his struggles. But his answers always came by the same method of Daniel.  Prayer.   Likewise, so have my answers come by sincere personal prayer seeking  audience with the God Heaven. Of which I have never been denied access to the Most High God. And that access is through the Name of the Lord Jesus who shed his blood for me.

 

No, I don’t hear voices, have visions, or get to chat with an Angel as Daniel did.  And he found it dreadful and even collapsed. See Daniel 10:

O my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength.   For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? for as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me.

 

 Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me, and said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me.

 

 

So, I conclude it is better the way the Lord has dwelt with me.  And beside without faith, it is impossible to please God.  So, if God spoke to us or gave me a direct menu of what to do. It would not be by faith.  And therefore whatever we did  would not pleasing to God even if it is in obedience to him.

 

And as I am curious as can be for my future and Mexico. Wondering and waiting. Ever so impatiently.  It seems the more impatient I become, the tighter the locks become that God has placed on me.

 

And therefore I will do as I have learned from the Word of God and the all the Godly men God has placed in my life to be examples and mentors. And see how Daniel always began his prayer with real repentance.

 

Seeking my answers in the written Word of God, and then have my personal audience before the Most High God. And as it is promised to us and I have experienced.

 

 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

 

Until the Lord illumines us on his plan for my family and the next steps we are to take. And for the Lords plan for Mexico.  It is time to diligently search the Word of God, and pray having our audience before the Most High God of Heaven.  And then the best of all.  That personal promise of communion with the Lord Jesus. For I long for the living waters God has promised.

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.   Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit;  so shall ye be my disciples.  As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If  ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

    RUN SAMSON RUN

    I had full intentions this time to complete part two of my last letter. However, that letter is not the most earth changing subject and can it can wait a month I called that latter When God Comes and Gathers his Jewels. I could have properly that letter A Copy of the Final Exam to study Before Test Day.

    For example if you were Bible student at class at a Bible College. And you missed a class day or week because you were on a mission trip.

    Perhaps you ask one of your fellow students what you missed in class. Let us say one student says that there is a test next week. You ask, on what specific part subject? That student says well much of the information is in the 1st chapter of Matthew. Memorize the genealogy. That includes much of the exam questions.

    Then another more friendly fellow student states, Look here, you must know all the Kings of Juda and of Israeli in order and if they be good or bad kings.

    If one were to follow the first student’s advice, it is true but very incomplete if not misleading.

    he second student’s information provided more details and enough that the person can pass the exam with 100%. The first advice is true but only is half the required information. You can’t pass the exam and need another friend.

    A 50 percent score is failing. Both of the advices given were true. However, one hint was very incomplete although accurate. This is a fictitious example so no checking motives of students. It is just a made-up story to help demonstrate an idea.

    You will hear “Do the will of God, server God”’ That is true but it is incomplete or vague information. I agree to everyone, find and do the will of God. But that will not give you how to find and do the will of God.

    In part 2 of “When God comes and Gathers his Jewels” I will share the hints I learned about what information Heaven is writing in the books about us. What it is that pleases God and the Angles know and rejoice.

    I lost my parents and they are saved in heaven. Do they get reports about me? I DON’T KNOW. But if they do get information, what are they told? I am going to share what they are and are not told. That is if they are ever told anything, What do they care about?

    In Malachi and the Book of Revelation there are books mentioned that are written about Gods Jewels.

    I believe I can share with everyone what type of information is being collected on us. And therefore, you can be prepared and receive a full reward. Like knowing what to study for on the final exam. It is not cheating having a study guide.

    This is not Special Revelation given to me by God. Nor did I break into the professor’s office to copy the final exam. But without the proper study guide, one can be on the sent doing the right things in a wrong way. 2 John 1:8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.

    The information I want to share is somewhat like when a professor told me what exactly to study. Saying if you know these things, you will pass the exam. I am writing on very specific guidance that has revolutionized my walk with the Lord and has brought peace to my heart in the evaluations of my life before God.

    Matthew 13:52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

    Next month I will send that letter and it is old things you know and a few things you may not have heard before this letter.

    These are my treasures I want to share in part two of that letter are based excursively on 2 sources.

    The statement called the Eternal Purposes of God and a careful analysis of the Word of God. In particular the Books of Samuel, Kings and Chronicles. And I can say with rather certainty what is being written about us and it is to be opened and read openly in heaven at the Judgment seat of Christ.

    And it is not what I would have considered before this lesson. The information I want to share has changed my entire outlook on my life and brought peace to my soul. I hope it may to others bring peace and answer questions for those as I that struggle with doing and knowing what is the will of God.

    But why wait to send it? Because something else happened. Last month I asked the question, why are leaders in Fundamental Baptist Churches systematically and preemptively removing public prayer in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and replacing it with , “IN YOUR NAME” ?

    I was given the answer and it rattled my brain, at least what is left of it after my stroke.

    A dear and beloved friend of my sent an email to his pastor asking why this is occurring in his church. Stating it was occurring in the church and rather odd. Was it just a circumstance or planned?

    He sent me the pastors answer. I classified his answer in this category. This not the quote but my interpretation of his answer.

    Remember when Jesus entered a Synagogue and healed the Twisted Sister? The old lady so crippled she was bent over because her spine was so degenerated she could not walk upright? Luke 13

    Look at the response of the leader of the synagogue:
    Luke 13:14
    And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day.

    The answer given by the pastor about the name of Jesus being removed was as good as it gets. Just like this leader in the days of Jesus. The ruler of the synagogue could not care less about the woman and this pastor cannot possibly care less about doctrine of Christ.

    My response to my dear friend was, your pastor went to the same school as that ruler of the synagogue. Afterward I was told a week later they had a service and all public prayer was ended in In YOUR NAME AMEN. The Name of Jesus has been removed. And not by oversite. And so, I asked why?

    The answer is called the Emergence Church. It is a product along the philosophy of the Purpose Driven Church, or postmodern Christianity, it is along delayed fruit of the famous liberal teachers Harry Fosdick and Norman Peale.

    It is also called Neo Liberalism or Neo Evangelism hiding under a rock. The purpose is to undermine ever so subtly the Fundamentals of the faith, but not as directly as Fosdick who denied the Virgin Birth, Deity of Christ, sin, hell, and the need for salvation. That is like placing something alive into freezing or boiling water. It causes a reaction. This is a much more lukewarm attempt.

    It is to remove:

    Doctrinal Certainty
    Spiritual Clarity
    Gospel Exclusivity

    In place of the Congregationalist denomination they have replaced it with this new idea called Conversationalist.

    They want to be non-offensive to Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim. Mormon, Watchtower, or Catholics and have open conversation with them in our quest for God so we can all be fiends and ride the Star Ship Enterprise to the final frontier and meet God on Mans’s own terms. That is why they actively removed prayer ending in the Name of The LORD JESUS to In YOUR NAME.

    While it is fitting and temping to expose the current men responsible for this doctrine. That is not Biblical for me and I leave that monkey to someone else.

    1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

    The Lord Jesus began his Judgment on Jerusalem by cleansing the temple and removing the money changers, He did it again just before he was crucified.

    He did not achieve repentance from the Jews of that day, but rather it left them desolate and determined to kill him. His judgment concluded in 70 AD with the leveling of the temple under the Roman Empire.

    This new doctrine of demons, now in Fundamental Baptist churches must be exposed to allow some saints to escape. To me it is incurable. It is a patient with stage 4 pancreas cancer, stage 4 brain high grade Glioblastoma, pulmonary embolism, and end stage renal disease.

    It’s time to go comfort care, hospice, and end has come. That patient as Elisha is sick with the sickness of which they are to die. It is time to set one’s house in order. The Fundamentalist need to set the house in order because once this comes, the candle stick has had the light put out.

    My blame for this is not on the new wags teaching but on my most beloved and blessed Bible teachers. No false teachers but men who made the same error of Peter when he rebuked the Lord for saying he would go to Jerusalem to die and be given to the hands of the Romans.

    I am blaming Schofield, Chaffer, McGee, and MacArthur as at least having a major fault for this mess. These are men whom I love and hold dearly as men of great influence and help in my Christian life. Who have been greatly used of God beyond human understanding in my life and giving me a Bible Heritage of the Gospel. I am not blaming them for lies, but their little leaven clearly helped leaven the entire lump.

    Alas, these wonderful Bible teachers who fought such a good fight. They all made one major mistake that allowed this Emergence Church doctrine to come gave no no way to defend against. The wounds are incurable.

    I work the Night Shift at my hospital job. In my 30 years of secular jobs I worked no mare then perhaps at most 8 on the day shift. I did not necessarily choose to work the later shifts but they allowed me to do the work that God gave me to do.
    Well I make a confession. I grew to love coffee. Lots of coffee, Hot , Cold, Cold brew, or about any way. As I told my dear mother in law when I was newly married. She asked how I liked my coffee?

    I responded that fateful day that I drink my coffee just how as is my wife and marriage. Black and Bitter! Negro Y Amargo! Patty’s mother might have weighed all of 100 lbs. and was at best 4’8” tall. I knew I could out run her or she could not hit me so hard it that response in Spanish did not go so well for me. But alas, after a short gasp. she composed herself and just rolled her eyes at her big dumb son in law that she loved. I guess she did not want her daughter to be a widow so soon. I tormented that poor dear Godly lady the rest of her life with such comments till she finally had enough and went home to be with her Lord. But I do have a rather extreme love for coffee and for tormenting my wife’s family.

    About 10 days ago I was driving my 100-mile trip to work at night, along the way I turned on the radio and there was a preacher coming on teaching Luke and reading the story of Jesus and Zacchaeus in the city of Jericho. That very well-known story of with the song we sing in Kindergarten. Zacchaeus was a wee little man, a wee little man was he. He climbed up a sycamore tree for the Lord he wanted to see. I said oh this is going to be good. And it was good as always and there were real Biblical treasures given.

    But I said, if at the end of this message Zacchaeus climbed a sycamore tree and not a Kumquat tree. Or a perhaps an eggplant tree, or a money tree, or any other tree on this planet. But there is no way at the end of this sermon Zacchaeus climbed a sycamore tree. I said if he climbed a sycamore tree NO COFFEE for me for 24 hours. I will drink Tea and water. Guess what? I got me a Starbucks Trenty with extra cream the next morning. It is not possible since 1984 to hear in the United States a message where the Word of God was right. Somewhere a word must be changed. The sycamore tree can never be a sycamore tree if taught by a college graduate. They tree is anything except what the Bible said. For all we know it was a latter made out of Ark of Noah which was a form of sycamore tree, once called Gopher wood.

    In my teenage years the Badger skins on the wilderness tabernacle were Porpoises skins. ( Dolphin skins) When I asked how did Moses get porpoise skins in the middle of the desert? Why can it not be Badger skins which Badgers live in the wilderness?

    The answer was that Honey Badger don’t care and Moses had connections with the Miami Dolphins. By the time class was over, not one thing was what it said it was and up is down, right is backwards, down is left and nobody knew what on earth the subject was even concerning.

    I wrote a typical Baptist rant about 4 changes to the Bible. Genesis 2 the fall of man. God did not say what he said. Virgin Birth in book of Isiah is about another Virgin Birth that we know nothing about except with when teaching Isiah. That Jesus died on Thursday and arose of Saturday night. I wrote my rant in 2016 placed it on the internet and called it Shall the Fundamentalist win of 2016. Well, it did not save the planet.

    When a typical Bible teacher in in Matthew they will refer to Isiah as the quote in the Book of Matthew concerning a virgin birth of the Lord Jesus. The Bible is the authority. Bible with Bible. But when the same teachers are in Isiah teaching chapter 7. It is referring to another son born of a Virgin and called Emanuel. And the authority and final authority are taken from the Babylonian and Jerusalem Talmud Which is commanded to be ignored

    This is what is called the REMOVING OF Scripture Specificity.
    ( Scriptural Clarity) When the badger skins are skins of the aardvark and the sycamore tree is Chinese prickly pear tree. No wonder all the Church conventions removed and people like flies in cow pastors sat and did nothing when they removed the phrase Inerrancy of the” Word of God” in the Baptist church confessions of faith. Nobody stopped the men of God for parading their superior Greek and now dealing with a Baptist is worse than talking to Watchtower people.

    While the men I mentioned are sound in the faith n Doctrinal Certainty, Gospel Exclusivity. Meaning they are sound Bible teachers, Sound in Doctrine of Christ, and all the fundamentals of the faith and of Salvation. They thoroughly and so unintendedly destroyed Scripture clarity and no portion of the Word of God is correct. My guess and I hope I am wrong, but when brother MacArthur goes home to be with the Lord. I expect Grace church will be rocking out the nights and emigrating like Salvadorians to the USA into the Emerging Church. Why ? Because nothing is certain except what the Bible said and you read is not right.

    But for now, I do listen and love the men I mentioned as much as the Lord loved Simon Peter when he rebuked him. They have been used of God but they pricked me once too much.

    This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth Titus 1: 13-14

    My beloved teacher Chaffer said that Cambridge asked bother Schofield to do a project, but under one circumstance. He could not change the word WORLD to AGE in the end of the Gospel of Matthew. They spent years and a fortune searching the entire world for an absolute answer to the meaning of the word used in the Bible. They said it was conclusive that the word must be translated to the END OF THE WORLD not the END of the AGE. But now find a Bible where the note does not say age!

    There is world spinning on that one word and they day is coming when it will be a matter of life and death. Both Spiritual and Physically to Americans Christians. Just wait and see. The Lord Jesus Christ is with us as it is written. Till the END OF THE WORLD. Schofield and the all these men will go to hell before I will sit in a church and let any man change the Bible in my presence and I not walk out.

    I have not ever made a commotion during a service because no man ever crossed the line of blasphemy. One radio man was banned from my hearing who said that Moses borrowed all the ideas for the tabernacle from the Egypt gods. That crossed the line of no hope. Let God judge him and I stay away. That man was not the men I mentioned.

    Oh, I can rant on and on. But that is why the name of Jesus has been removed in Public prayer in Fundamental Baptist Churches and replaced with IN YOUR NAME?

    For the Emerging Church to open conversation with the liars to find open communication and learn from each other’s quest in the way to God. And to hell!!!!!

    If you have this in your church, Do not fight it much. Ask and if they resist. Show them how fast you can run. Run like Samson should have done from Delia. Keep your spiritual hair on your head. Luke 21: 17-19 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls. There are now a lot of spiritual barbers in the Baptist Churches. Run Samson run !

    Let God and the written Word of God be true and EVERY MAN a LIAR. Let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

    I have been severely criticized for walking out on preachers who changed the Word of God. But I learned they can never find another preacher to change the word to the same word.

    In the Bible it says “Badger skins” which are so tuff even some bullets cannot penetrate it. In this day and age the Bible teacher will say it is any animal except a badger. But when inquiring father at the zoo when talking to the Badgers. I was told, Honey Badger don’t care, Moses used our skins. So now I got that at questions settled talking to the Badgers. At Sea World, the Proposes and Dolphins Miami knew nothing of the Tabernacle. In fact they said a fish in the desert stinks really bad.

    Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 2 Timothy 2 : 14-17

  2. I am getting ready to fully commit myself to studying and become an Elder. I will be sharing the gift that God anointed my life as a blessing is ministry with the prayer gift associated ;with the Love He had put into my heart. Amen
