The Spirit says.

Tom's Journal.

You know, friends and readers, I didn't think too much about this 'new facet'-- another way to look and understand this scripture before. |I usually applied 1st Timothy, chapter 4, verse 3 to the Catholic church: "Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believer and know the truth." [---no meat on Friday, and celibacy of priests.] But I recently noticed some of my own relatives getting misled by wayward women into the New Age false religion that teaches they should not eat any living creature-- vegetarianism for the wrong reasons! If a person chooses to abstain from meat for medical, health or personal reasons-- that fine! But don't get sucked into some Eastern religious cult that forbids such things! Because the Bible plainly warns against such things! Going back to 1 Timothy 4:1: "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils, 2. Speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron......" -- so we KNOW where these things are coming from-- the devil! Verse 4 says: "For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5. For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer."

So we see that we are allowed EVERYTHING on earth to eat [except cannibalism, of course], and anyone who goes BEYOND the Scriptures is cursed-- See: Revelation.

Now, The process used to be Saved is simple-- yet profound. Yet, if we don't want to remain babies/ infants, we must push ourselves to read and study God's Word constantly, daily, to become mature, useful Christians. We ought to understand what the term: Blood guilt means. If we have the means, power, resources to save others from injury or death-- but just stand by doing nothing-- we are said to be, Blood guilty! We have their blood on our hands because we chose to do NOTHING. Seems to me that we ought to study the Bible intensely [and cultivate a love for the Bible], so as to "have the tools" to help others learn the Gospel and get Saved. We cannot pay back to God, for all the things He has GIVEN us Free as a gift. But we can obey Him by helping other to know how to get Saved. Or will we just bury the talent of gold $$$ in the dirt, like the evil servant of the Master-- parable, in the book of Matthew -- told by Jesus?? Time is short. Can we at least say that we have graduated from 'Basic Training??' Or.. are we too wrapped up in the rat race of material things and maintaining our personal 'Status Quo' and stay in our 'comfort zone.' Hey, that will be short-lived too, friends. Real economic suffering should begin in America within about 6 months, methinks. That's just my personal opinion-- but mark my word.

The State Gov't sent us a letter today saying that "we make too much money"-- about $1000 more 'than we should'-- to qualify for Sharon's nursing home assistance...Ha! If that is so, and we can't figure out something else, I will just have to bring Sharon home the last day of November. So am I to feel guilty for working hard all my life and paying my bills?? I will take care of my wife at home, if I have to, but this is just one more worry I don't need at this time, when I am preparing myself for my own VA hospital visit. Thank you ALL for your many prayers and well wishes. Jesus is my Lord and Savior.

Warm Regards,
