Issue No: 737     Published: 14 Dec 2015

CHRISTIANITY - A CULTURE, ORGANISATION, OR A RELATIONSHIP?

Last week's discussion again leads on to this week's word.

Paul followed up on what Jesus said, confirming that the church is to be led by the Holy Spirit.....

3 You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. 4 Such confidence we have through Christ before God. 5 Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. 6 He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. (2 Corinthians 33-6)

In the Old Testament, the 'church system of the day was presided over by a priesthood, under the leadership of the High Priest, the first appointee being Moses' brother, Aaron.....

Then Moses brought Aaron and his sons forward and washed them with water. He put the tunic on Aaron, tied the sash around him, clothed him with the robe and put the ephod on him. He also fastened the ephod with a decorative waistband, which he tied around him. Then he placed the turban on Aaron’s head and set the gold plate, the sacred emblem, on the front of it, as the Lord commanded Moses. He poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron’s head and anointed him to consecrate him. (Leviticus 8:6-12)

However, by the time of Jesus, the High Priesthood had become debased to become an annually elected appointment. At the time of the crucifixion of Jesus, the High Priest was Caiaphas.....

He did not say this on his own, but as high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the Jewish nation, (John 11:51)

As an interesting aside, it is postulated (not proven) that the true hereditary High Priest for the time was likely to have been John the Baptist. Of course it was he who baptized Jesus, passing the final priesthood to Jesus, who intercedes for us with the Father.....

Jesus the Great High Priest
14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven,[a] Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:14-16)


When Jesus died, rose again, and ascended into heaven, the priesthood was not passed on to another 'superior' human priesthood, but was passed, by means of the Holy Spirit, to each and every believer.....

4 John, To the seven churches in the province of Asia:Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits[a] before his throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, 6 and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen. (Revelation 1:4-6)

As we saw last week.....

15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. (John 14:15-17)

And confirmed.....

16 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? (1 Corinthians 3:16)

The religious leaders of the day, and in reality, now too, cannot accept this, for they saw/see themselves as the repository of the priesthood, rather than the individual believer. The King James Version sets this out this internal personal priesthood, and therefore kingdom, most clearly.....

20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:20-21KJV)

Yes, the kingdom of God is within you and within me! Through the Holy Spirit who dwells within us.

This week, I would like you to ponder how this biblical truth relates to the church and its structure today.

Continued next week.

FROM THE WORD

THE WORDS OF JESUS

May we hear what the Lord is saying to us.

Healing a Man With Dropsy (Luke 14:1-6)
Speaking to the Pharisees leader at his house.

“Does the law allow healing on the Sabbath or not?”
“If your son or your ox happened to fall into a well on the Sabbath, wouldn’t you go and pull him out immediately?”

Parable of the Feast (Luke 14:7-11)
Addressed to all the Pharisees, sitting in the places of honour.

“When you’re invited to a wedding reception, don’t take the place of honor, because someone more important than you may have been invited,” he began. “Your host who invited you both will come and tell you, ‘Give this man your place.’ Then in embarrassment you’ll have to move to whatever place is left. Instead, when you’re invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes in, he’ll tell you, ‘My friend, please move to a better seat.’ Then you’ll be honoured before all the guests sitting with you. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

Invitation Advice (Luke 14:12-14)
Given to the host.

“When you give a lunch or a dinner, don’t invite your friends, or your brothers, or your relatives, or your rich neighbors, for they may invite you back, and then you’d be repaid. Instead, when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, for they have nothing to repay you with, and you’ll be rewarded at the resurrection of the righteous.”

(Continued next week.)

DAVID'S DOODLINGS

TRUTH AND KNOWLEDGE

464. Knowledge is partial, truth complete.

465. Man’s truth is revealed in the world, God’s truth in the Word. One ‘l’ of a difference!

466. Understanding the truth is just one small step for God, but a giant leap for mankind.

467. Knowledge binds up, while the truth sets free.

468. Knowledge is to doubt as truth is to faith.

469. Knowledge is to be desired, faith to be sought.

470. All too often we place our faith in knowledge rather than acknowledging our true need for faith.

471. Knowledge is complex, faith and truth simple.

472. If I had full knowledge of everything, wouldn’t I be God? Fortunately I will never have to answer this question!

473. Knowledge is a golden sceptre, appearing to be so powerful and beautiful to behold, yet it can be quickly disfigured by even the smallest diamond of truth.

LAUGHING AT OURSELVES

***Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused***

*** Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others. ***


259. BUBBA AND THE POPE
Bubba was bragging to his boss one day, "You know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them."

Tired of his boasting, his boss called his bluff, "OK, Bubba how about Tom Cruise?"
"Sure, yes, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it." So Bubba and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise's door, and sure enough, Tom Cruise, shouts, "Bubba! Great to see you! You and your friend come right in and join me for lunch!"

Although impressed, Bubba's boss is still sceptical. After they leave Cruise's house, he tells Bubba that he thinks Bubba's knowing Cruise was just lucky.

"No, no, just name anyone else," Bubba says.

"President Clinton," his boss quickly retorts.

"Yes," Bubba says, "I know him, let's fly out to Washington." And off they go. At the White House, Clinton spots Bubba on the tour and motions him and his boss over, saying, "Bubba, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let's have a cup of coffee first and catch up." Well, the boss is very shaken by now, but still not totally convinced.

After they leave the White house grounds, he expresses his doubts to Bubba, who again implores him to name anyone else.

"The Pope," his boss replies.

"Sure!" says Bubba. "My folks are from Poland, and I've know the Pope a long time." So off they fly to Rome. Bubba and his boss are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Bubba says, "This will never work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I'll come out on the balcony with the Pope." and he disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican. Sure enough, half an hour later Bubba emerges with the Pope on the balcony. But by the time Bubba returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.

Working his way to his boss' side, Bubba asks him, "What happened?" His boss looks up and says, "I was doing fine until you and the Pope came out on the balcony and the man next to me said, "Who's that on the balcony with Bubba?"

258. NOT SO GOOD SERMONS
A young minister took a rural parish. His wife kept herself busy with ministry and hobbies. Three years later, the couple decided to move to another parish because the church was dying. As the minister cleaned out the bedroom closet, he found an egg carton filled with money. He counted out a dozen one-dollar bills and three beautifully decorated eggs.

"What's this, sugar?" he asked his wife. "Oh, honey," she said bashfully, "I was hoping you wouldn't find that." When her husband asked her to explain, she at last complied.
"You see, dear," she said in an embarrassed tone, "one of my hobbies is decorating eggs. When I get depressed, I decorate an egg and I feel better."

"Oh," the minister replied. "Tell me more. Why haven't you told me about this before?"

"Well," she continued meekly, "The only time I get depressed is when you preach a bad sermon. So I decorate an egg whenever you mess up really bad."

At that point, the minister grinned and hugged his wife. "Not a bad record, if I do say so myself! Three years, over fifty sermons a year, and only three bad ones!"

After the hug, the wife spoke up again.

"There's something else I should tell you," she said bashfully. "Every time I got a dozen eggs decorated I sold them to the women's missionary corps for a dollar."

FACTS FOR FUN

LAST WEEKS QUESTION: Where are all the baby pigeons?

ANSWER: You see pigeons on every sidewalk in the city. But where are their babies? The answer lies in the way pigeons hide their nests. They may be city-dwellers now, but way back, were cliff-dwellers. They still like to build their nests up high on modern cliffs - atop tall buildings or high window ledges or even stuck inside a bridge somewhere. Pigeons are dedicated parents. They tend to lay only two eggs at a time, then spoil the baby pigeons so much that the babies are nearly adult-sized and plump by the time they leave the nest. (Does plumpness make them ‘pigeon toed?)

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: What's the difference between a turtle and a tortoise?

Answer Next Week.

SOME FUN FACTS

471. MEDIEVAL MUSIC
Scientists have discovered the oldest playable musical instrument in the world, a flute carved from a bird’s wing bone more than 9,000 years ago. The flute was discovered with other flutes at an ancient burial site in China. (A fluke the flute was now found?)

472. A RHYME IN TIME
The game ‘crambo’, in which a person or team must find a rhyme to a word or a line of verse given by another, originated around 1600. The word 'crambo' is derived from the Latin for ‘cabbage’. (A game so funny, not played for money.)

473. GENERATIONAL INHERITANCE
The world's first iron bridge, built at Coalbrookdale, Shropshire, England in 1782, was the culmination of the creativity of three generations of Darbys. Abraham Darby I developed the use of coke; his son manufactured cast iron; and his grandson built the bridge. (Were they ‘iron fisted’ too? Come from a line of ‘iron maidens’?)

248. SPEEDY
An industrious turkey farmer was always experimenting with breeding to perfect a better turkey. His family was fond of the leg portion for dinner and there were never enough legs for everyone. After many frustrating attempts, the farmer was relating the results of his efforts to his friends at the general store.

..."Well I finally did it! I bred a turkey that has 6 legs!"

They all asked the farmer how it tasted. "Don't know" said the turkey farmer. ....."I never could catch one!!!"

247. VALUE FOR MONEY?
The mine operator called the nearby state prison and asked them to send over a safecracker to open his jammed safe. Soon a convict showed up, spun the dials, listened intently, and calmly opened the safe door.

"Well," said the mine operator, "what do you think I owe you?"

The prisoner said, "Uh, the last time I opened a safe, I got $25,000."

246. I KNOW IT IS EARLY...
I know it is early, but every year about this time, I start to long for the holidays. Maybe you are like me when it comes to the holidays. Some people REALLY love Christmas. Me, I love Thanksgiving. Last year I had my chance to do the traditional thing of shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving. Man... you should have seen the people scatter in the meat department.

245. THE DRUMMER
A little boy runs up to his mother and shouts, "Mommy! Mommy! I want to be a drummer when I grow up!"
The mother sweetly replies, "You can't do BOTH."

244. FIREWORKS
It was the Fourth of July and the fireworks had lit up the sky.

As the last one burned out, a four-year-old piped up, "Daddy, do God's feet ever get burned?"

7 Ways to Bless Immigrants Instead of Bashing Them

This morning when I bought a newspaper in the Orlando airport, the man who rang up my purchase greeted me with a bashful smile. The name on his employee badge was "ZIAD." I always try to guess where people are from, but his name wasn't familiar. Was he from Lebanon? Jordan? Egypt?

Ziad finally solved the mystery. "I am Palestinian, sir," he said.

"Welcome, Ziad," I told him, "Let me be the first person to tell you today that I'm glad you are here in the United States!"

"That makes be very happy, sir," he replied.

I've been going out of my way to say kind words to immigrants these days - not just because Donald Trump has been offending them with his "all Mexicans are rapists" comments but also because I believe Christians have a responsibility to be hospitable to foreigners.

I understand the fear that has gripped our country in this age of ISIS terror. In the last month around 130 people died in the Paris attacks, 43 were killed in Beirut and 224 died in the Russian airliner that was allegedly bombed by radical jihadis. In response to the violence, 30 U.S. governors have announced that Syrian refugees aren't welcome here - even though they are fleeing to America to escape terrorists.

Entertaining Angels Unknowingly

What I don't understand is how Christians in this country can be so heartless when it comes to showing kindness to the very people Jesus told us to love. We have allowed our fear - as well as our cherished Republican Party values - to nullify God's Word. (Note to critics: I'm a Republican, but I'm a Christian first.)

The New Testament calls us to love not only the people who look like us but even those who are considered enemies. Hebrews 13:2 says: "Do not forget to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unknowingly." Meanwhile Christian leaders are exhorted in 1 Timothy 3:2 to be "hospitable" - and this is not simply a reference to hosting a meal. The word is in the Greek philoxenos, which means "love of strangers."

So how can you and your church obey this biblical mandate and show love to the strangers who live near you? Here are a few suggestions, offered just in time for the holiday season:

1. Say something nice. I often tell immigrants I'm glad they are in the United States - and most of them say they've never received a compliment like that before. Many of them are lonely - and they feel unwelcome, especially when Mr. Trump and other disrespectful Americans complain about foreigners as if they carry a disease.

2, Find out their story. You might be surprised to learn that the "Muslim" living in your neighborhood is actually a Middle Eastern Christian. Or that the Somali refugee who attends your child's high school fled to this country to escape a war. All you have to say is: "I'd love to hear how you came to live in America." Then listen.

3. Invite them to church. Never assume that immigrants are hostile to your faith. When I spoke recently in South Dakota, I met a Muslim girl from Uzbekistan who has been attending church for months out of curiosity. She finds love and friendship among Christians, even though she struggles to understand why Jesus died for her.

4. Offer legal help. Americans often complain about illegal immigrants without bothering to realize that many of them are eager to comply with our laws. They actually need help navigating our complicated system, which is snarled by delays and unfair to people from certain countries. Recruit lawyers in your church to provide free seminars or other legal assistance to immigrants in your area.

5. Prepare a Christmas meal. Foreigners who move to the United States are curious about the meaning of our Christmas holiday - and they won't understand it by visiting a local mall or by watching Elf. Invite international students or an immigrant family into your home and let them experience your family traditions.

6. "Adopt" a refugee family. Aside from the displaced Syrians who are waiting to come to the U.S. today, refugees from Africa and other nations are probably already living near you. Most of them have been traumatized by war, poverty or persecution - and they are lonely and insecure. Contact one of the Christian organizations working with refugees (such as World Relief) and volunteer to provide meals, babysitting, Christmas gifts or mentoring.

7. Become an English instructor. There are more than 1 million internationals studying on U.S. campuses in 2015. (The majority come from China, India, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Mexico and Brazil.) These students would love an American friend to help them with their English. Offer to be a language coach by contacting your local college or university.

While the immigrant-bashers talk of building a wall to keep immigrants out, we are called to build bridges of friendship. Let's remember that Jesus - who lived as a refugee in Egypt during His infancy - wants the church to love foreigners.

THINKING GREEK OR HEBREW

We are all products of the societies and cultures in which we are brought up. When it comes to the Bible and Jesus, most of us look through a Western, Greek based mind set, rather than that of the Hebraic society in which Jesus lived and ministered.

This has led to major misunderstandings and misinterpretation of Scripture during the past approximately 2 millennia since Jesus.

This e-book summarizes these and looks at the spiritual challenges They pose to the church today.

WAXING LYRICAL

I was late starting to write a PGIM, for I had listened in the early morning on the radio to the New Zealand 'All Blacks' beating Ireland 22-3 in a Rugby Union international. By way of explanation, the game was played in Ireland, who are currently 11 hours behind New Zealand time.

Finally, coming to write, A David Musing, I had no inspiration, so asked the Lord what to write! 'A poem!' 'No Lord, takes too long! 'Call it Tick Tock!' (God has a sense of humour!) 'Okay Lord.'

The result follows. And it didn't take too long, after all!

TICK TOCK

Hours fly by,
Oh me, oh my!
Deadlines come, deadlines go,
Need to go, with the flow.

Tick tock goes the clock.

The day dawns nice and bright,
Summer's here, heaps of light.
Enjoy the sun,
Have some fun.

Tick tock goes the clock.

Months do pass,
All too fast.
Christmas will soon be here,
Time of goodwill and cheer.

Tick tock goes the clock.

The years, they roll by,
Oh my, how they fly!
From youth, onwards to middle age,
Life proceeds, stage by stage.

Tick tock goes the clock.

A new generation takes the stage,
What's happened? 'Tis called age!
Time flies by now, even faster,
Get ready to meet thy master!

Tick tock goes the clock.

The clock stops... silence reigns.
Now is it loss, or is it gains?
Where will you be the day your time is up?
In hell, or in heaven, with Jesus to sup?

A DAVID MUSING

This week I have had our friend Asher Peri from India staying with us for a few days.

I met Asher through the very first issue of PGIM published over 14 years ago now. He replied to my first mailing and we have been good friends ever since.

I started off going to India twice, and since then Asher has now been to New Zealand and Australia 8 times. The last time however was 3 years ago, so there has been a long time between visits.

Like all good friendships we were able to pick up just where we had left off 3 years ago, and enjoy each other's company for too short a time. Good friendships are like that.

Jesus is just like that . Our brother is waiting there to hear from us and will carry on from where we left off.

How long since we have spoken to Him?

PS: Indians do smile and laugh, just not very often in photos!

So until next week.....

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU BLESS GOD

His servant and yours
