The Missing Cross to Purity


In the Faith


For Those In the Faith, Here is What is New on the Site

The messages from the Word of the Lord within on this site are provided to help you gauge the truth of the words you hear spoken to you, to correct the many errors of the deficit sects' doctrines, to encourage you, to caution you, to help you understand the true promises of the Bible, the true restrictions, the true hope, true belief, true faith, and true way to attain the promises. However, the messages published on this site are dead words, without life; whereas words that you hear Him speak to you are words with life and resulting power. Regarding the similar dead words, (without life), that you read in the Bible, the Lord has spoken this advice: "When you have heard the dead words in the Bible and recall them, heed what is said; always obedient to His commands." Does that mean you should disregard any commands from Him that you read?—no, just like the many commands you read in the Bible, you should try to follow them; but as long as you don't deliberately violate a command, should you slip and fail, you should only regret your lack of ability and not feel condemned. The commands you have heard Him speak to you come with the power to obey, providing you do your best to comply.

The words you hear may not be exact duplicates of the words in the Bible or of these messages, but every message you hear from Him will be compatible with the true meaning of the words of the Bible, as well as compatible with the messages on this site. Every message you hear is like receiving a piece to a puzzle, each word fitting together, filling the gaps in your understanding, until you finally see and feel the brilliant truth and wondrous beauty of the scriptures' promises, salvation, and righteousness — the unfathomable depth of God's love to crown his creation in restoring man to sanctity and holiness in union with Himself through Christ.

Bible Changes

Web Page Changes

  • Based on a few readers' misunderstandings regarding tribulations and sufferings, the footnote to 1 Peter 4:1-2, and the web page, How to Benefit from the Changing Power of God by Waiting on the Lord, has been changed as shown by additional red text below:

    Tribulation is not a hard day at the office, a car wreck, someone stealing something from you, you being arrested for breaking the law, a death in the family, a divorce, or some natural difficulty; it is unmistakably, supernaturally imposed. Some of you are wrongly ascribing natural events such as a loss of car keys or being a victim of theft to be tribulation.

    For this suffering to be effective, you must realize three things:

    1. It is supernaturally imposed. It is not some natural disease, such as heart disease or cancer.* It cannot be cured. It cannot be stopped by anything you do.

        *Whatever natural diseases you contract when seeking, (which are not imposed by the will of the Lord), you will not die from them while you complete your seeking course, providing you stay seeking with obedience, (as the first priority in your life), confirmed by the message from the Word of the Lord within on this specific subject: "You will be protected." However you respond to the natural diseases is between you and the Lord; over the years, my wife and I have responded to our medical conditions with appropriate drugs, supplements, and surgeries, (surgeries with the Lord's go-ahead).

    2. Despite the supernaturally imposed afflictions to your body, no harm will result — except to your selfish spiritual nature.

    3. It is pleasing to God for you to undergo suffering because you are laying down your life for him — the one true sacrifice.

  • The web page, How to Benefit from the Changing Power of God by Waiting on the Lord, has been changed to correct the misimpression that God causes people to do evil things that affect you. The following has been added and/or clarified:

    He can control the little details of men's lives without violating their free will and self-confidence. Those chosen by God are protected by Him while they complete their seeking course; but he only provides protection to those who are seeking him in love and whom he has called; from the Word of the Lord within: "All other people, destined for reconciliation after this life, live without protection." We have free will, but with the little details, he can move us around like chess board pieces and not violate our free will, because the insignificant details that he controls don't violate our heart's principles, (however evil they are), or our self-confidence; choices that follow our heart's principles and affect our self-confidence are made by us independently, and He does not override those decisions in anyone.

    From the Word of the Lord within:
    "If people want to make a bad-choice decision, that's their prerogative."

    So, do not believe that God has caused someone around you to do something evil that affects you. He protects your life so that you can be completed, but He does not stop those around you from doing wrong.
    .....
    He told me, "live in the fortress of faith where it doesn't matter if someone gives you a kiss or hits you with a baseball bat." So if I get hit with a baseball bat, he expects me to learn the necessity of forgiving: to ignore it, despite the pain suffered and wrongness of the person wielding the bat. Your life is an obstacle course, designed by God, for you to crawl over and through, learning to forgive and love despite the pain and injustice. This life is a boot camp to produce a soldier of love, whose weapon is the sword of the Spirit, the living word of God. When you realize it is God who has allowed, (allowed but not motivated), that person to be rude, ugly, and painful to you, you can easily forgive them because they are just an obstacle of potential resentment, whose offense is to be overlooked, (or if not overlooked, to produce the pain of resentment), thus being used by God to help you spiritually progress.
