It’s Often Said

It’s often said, that Christians are the most intolerant people around. While radical Islam, or the hard-core Islamist, go about their business of bombing, running airplanes into buildings, killing their own children for what they persive to be the loss family honor, and on and on, we Christian are said to be the cause of so much hate and discontent in our society.
We are called homophobic, mean-spirited, hypocritical, narrow-minded, and many other names, some of which I am sure I can not repeat nor would I because that type of filth is not in my heart, but I digress. It must be a part of the Christian character that these names do not move us into submission. I myself will not allow the name calling, due to the ignorance of those doing the name calling, stop me from The Great Commission, you can find it in, Matthew 28:18-20. And remember ignorance is not name calling, it is a lack of knowledge. Many just do not know or understand the life of a true Christian. Without knowing the individual, people attack the body of Christ, the Christian faith, as a whole. This in itself is not fair, and shows a lack of tolerance on behalf of many in society towards the Christian faith.
It is true that there are many bad examples in the church amongst clergy and laity, and even more so in this era of the “New Age Religion”. The church has succumbed to the attacks and is trying to be a more society friendly, politically correct church. We the church have forgotten that the very nature of our faith is society friendly. A true friend always tells the truth, and this is what is unwanted in society, the truth.
Phinehas’s actions based on todays mentality, aside from the fact that he would have been charged with a double homicide, would have been considered over the top, an unnecessary judgement, an “it don’t take all of that” action. Well, it may seem like that to some, and even some in the church that are afraid to take a stand against unrighteousness, that is, that which is antagonistic against the righteousness of God.
Herein lies the question I will leave with you. If Phinehas’s action seemed over the top, extreme, even fanatical, and this being both to the Hebrew children, Zimri, and the heathen nation, Cozbi, why then was God pleased with Phinehas to the point of making a Covenant of everlasting peace with him and his family to come?
Interesting is’n it? We may not be able to run sinners through with javelins, whether they are saved or unsaved, but the zeal we have to use the word of God in His defense must be the same.
Hebrews 4:12 states, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
Remember, God loves the person but he hates the sin. He is not a respect of persons. His word comes to all that will receive it.

I Peter 4:17

Whats in a Word?

This is a list of words with their definitions that are in the Bible.I don,t understand how they are not understood to mean how they are defined. It’s like, “illegal aliens”, what is there not to understand about the word “illegal”. People go to prison for doing things that are “illegal”, so what is there not to understand.
The definitions in this list are taken from either, or both of, The Vines Complete Expository Dictionary and/or the Funk&Wagnalls New International dictionary.

You can argue with me, but can you argue with a word, God’s word?

1. Abomination-loathsome, detestable thing. Strong aversion or loathing; extreme disgust and hatred. Anything that excites disgust, hatred, or loathing;any detestable act or practice; anything vile or shamefully wicked. Something or someone as essentially unique in the sense of being “dangerous”, “sinister,” and “repulsive” to another individual.
When used with reference to God, this nuance of the word describes people, things, acts, relationships, and characteristics that are “detestable” to Him because they are contrary to His nature. People with habits loathsome to God are themselves detestable to Him.

2. Reprobate-Abandoned in sin; lost to all sense of duty; utterly depraved; profligate. One lost to all sense of duty or decency; one abandoned to depravity of doom. In the bible, of persons, Rom. 1:28, of “Reprobate mind,” a mind of which God cannot approve, and which must be rejected by Him, the effect of refusing ” to have God in their knowledge; where the RV rightly translates the adjective “reprobate” (KJV “reprobates”), here the reference is a great test as to whether Christ is in a person; in Tim. 3:8 of those “reprobate concerning the faith,” i.e., men whose moral sense is perverted and whose minds are beclouded with their own speculations.; in Titus 1:16, of the defiled, who are “unto every good work reprobate,” i.e., if they are put to the test in regard to any good work (in contrast to their profession), they can only be rejected.

3. Sin-A lack of conformity to, or transgression, especially when deliberate, of a law, precept, of principle regarded as having Devine authority. The state or condition of having thus transgressed; wickedness.
Sinned- To commit sin, transgress, neglect, or disregard the divine law or any requirement of right, duty, or propriety; do wrong.
The definition of “Sin,” in the Vine’s is the same, but with much more detail as pertaining to the actual Scriptures in the bible. It’s Worth the read.

These three words I belive, are some of the most rejected, denied, wrested, and even hated words in the bible,even by those who are of the household of faith. Like every Word in the bible they will not change. You can neither take them away, or their meaning. And if you disregard them, they will still hold true to the scriptures, and you/we will still be subject to the consequences of their definition. This is true for the believer and the unbeliever.

Scriptures for life:

Proverbs 28:5, 10, 15-16, and23.

The scriptures state in I 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”?

So What’s in a word? You decide. Also in this list is a list of scriptures, since The Word of God is “The Word”, these words will be more important than all other words, so read them and live

This list will be updated on a periodic bases.

The Voice behind Phinehas Javelin

There you have it, next to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as for as I am concerned, one of the most inspirational stories in the bible. Let there be no mistaking that for myself the voice of Phinehas’s javelin, Jesus is the greatest Man to become deliverer of humanity to ever and still live.
There were many other great men and woman throughout the sixty six books of the bible that did great note whorty things, but for me personally, this story of Phinehas has become a battle cry in my latter years to action as I witness the continuing down fall of society, starting with the church that Christ died for first.
As a Christian, saved twenty three years ago, Pastor, Husband,father,and grandfather, I take what is happening to the church very seriously. To sit by and whatch it’s deteriation take place and not do or say anything is against everything I believe in. I Peter 4:17a, states,”For the time is come that judgement must begin at the house of God:” and this judgement will be on all who have made the profession of faith and then lived life with no faith.
You see, even though Jesus had not died for the sins of humanity yet, there was the Law which was a shadow of things to come, so Zimri, in our story, had no exscuse for the rebellion he showed to Moses and the others who were weeping for their own disobedience. His fate as a child of Isreal, and that of Cozbi, the Midianitish woman, will be the fate of any unrepentant Christian (sinner), and unbelieving, (that is in Jesus Christ as Lord and savior),person.
My name is David G. Grogan Sr., and as the Founder, Voice, and Chief Editor of Phinehas’s javelin, of Which the Word of God is, it is my prayerful intention to just tell the truth, and that according to the Word Of God. St. John 8:32 ” And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
We WILL speak again soon.

Zealous for my God

Hello all,
For my first post, I would like to start off with a story from our Biblical History. After it’s posting, I will introduce myself to you. Here’s the story.
Numbers 25:1-13
1.And Isreal abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of moab.
2. And they called the people unto the sacrifice of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.
3. And Isreal joined himself unto Baal-peor: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against Isreal.
4. And the Lord said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the Lord against the sun, that the fierce anger of the Lord may be turned away from Isreal.
5. And Moses said unto the judges pd Isreal, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baal-peor.
6. And, Behold one of the children of Isreal came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight od Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Isreal, who were weeping befor the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
7. And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from the congregation,and took a javelin in his hand;
8. And he went after the man of Isreal into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Isreal, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Isreal.
9. And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand.
10. And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
11. Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest,hath turned my wrath away from the children of Isreal, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Isresl in jealousy.
12. Wherefore ssay, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace:
13. And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made atonement for the children of Isreal.
