The Blizzard Reminder for the Redeemed!

My dear friends with the snow falling last night at my house I was thinking about the wonders of... snow. Yes snow! Something one either hates or loves but whether you despise it or enjoy it, snow in it's self is an absolute wonder of Almighty God's ETERNAL creative  genius (Job 38:22-23, Psalm 104:24, Prov. 3:19).

As I was thinking of snow... the Bible verse from Isaiah 1:18 once again came to mind.

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."

Oh my dear friends, what a wondrous ETERNAL REALITY and TRUTH  to think on for the child of God as we walk through this fallen "scarlet colored" world in our "scarlet" fallen body (Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:1-2, Rom. 7:7-25)!

Snow is absolutely white and beautiful all together, pure and undefiled and up here in New England we get our fair share of it. There is nothing more beautiful than waking up in the morning after a huge snowstorm that happens in the dark of night! The total landscape is changed and whatever was visible on the ground prior is completely covered. All you can see is the beautiful whiteness of the fallen snow and this has a message to us. Almighty God uses His creation to teach us many important lessons, the most important of these lessons is how Christ's redemptive work cleanses the fallen child of Adam - who is born in a state of transgression and is a transgressor against all that is ABSOLUTE about Almighty God (Rom. 5:12-21). It's by faith alone in Almighty God's PERFECT LAMB and His finished WORK that the transgressor is redeemed, pardoned and cleansed by the shed RIGHTEOUS crimson colored blood of the Messiah of Israel (Isa. 53, Rom. 6:23, Eph. 2:8-9, Heb. 10:21-28, 1 Peter 1:19, Rev. 1:5)!

Almighty God's once PERFECT "white" creation has been HORRIFICALLY transformed and saturated into a darkened scarlet estate.

White is the easiest of all colors to be defiled while scarlet is not. From Adam's innocence, to his fall, to our present day some 6000 years later the white undefiled estate of Almighty God's original creation is anything but white as snow (Gen. 1:31, Rom. 5:12-21). Almighty God's once PERFECT "white" creation has been  HORRIFICALLY transformed and saturated into a darkened scarlet colored estate; non cleansable and unable to be restored to its original estate of white (RIGHTEOUSNESS). The darker the object the less the defiling stains show themselves and such is this present world (2 Cor. 4:3-4). The god of this world has blinded the minds of Adam's fallen unregenerated race and moral relativism and darkness is the prism in which this world views reality (Isa. 53:6). Our world today after 6000 years of accumulated scarlet deeds is absolutely saturated with the irremovable stains of godlessness, decadence, lawlessness and violence and absolutely hopeless for all of humanities unregenerated fallen remedies (Isa. 53:6, Rom. 3). Today our global scarlet estate is received and promoted as the "norm" while the purity of Almighty God's whiteness (RIGHTEOUSNESS) is rejected and looked at as defiled and evil by this world's unregenerate inhabitants (Isa. 5:20, John 3:19-21, 15:18, 17:14, 1 John 3:13). The world's inhabitants of today are subjectively absorbed in their fallen estate and absolutely oblivious to Almighty God's RIGHTEOUSNESS standard (Rom. 1:18-32, 10:2-4).

My dear friends, Almighty God cries out to a scarlet colored world today; "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."

Oh my dear friends, do you personally know what Almighty God has done for you? God the Father has taken our transgressions, which were innumerable and has washed them in the blood of His own dear Son the Lamb and has made us white as snow! When we received Christ into our hearts and do business with God as the Bible testifies and clearly teaches we are then changed from scarlet to snow white. In Christ the child of God has been REDEEMED, JUSTIFIED and RIGHTEOUS!

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." (2 Cor. 5:17-21)

"But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:" (1 Cor. 1:30)

My dear friends, may all the precious promises of Almighty God which are found in His Word for you be in your possession to personally know, experience and enjoy.

What a wonder that though our sins were as scarlet we that are now in Christ have been made white as snow (2 Cor. 5:17-21, Eph. 2:10-22, Rev. 1:5). Oh how we need this Divine TRUTH and REALITY this Christmas season my beloved!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

To God be the Glory!

I'm confused, your god made the cosmos 6,000 years ago (but made it look like 14.75 billion years because... stuff) and it was perfect then it went all horribly wrong and it's not your god's fault?

But isn't your god all-knowing and all-powerful? How could it not be its fault?

The Ignorant Fishermen said...

lol.... Indeed my friend, you are confused... When one is a slave to moral and spiritual relativism one will indeed be confused and a vindictive scoffer... (Rom. 1:18-32).


My friend it is really simple... until you yield your subjective fallen mind to the REALITY and TRUTH of Almighty God and His Word you will NEVER be free and will always be a slave to your rational and thinking as you are now to your evolution delusion.

The Son has come to set men free as I can testify to that I am indeed FREE! (John 8:32,36). May it be also with you one day.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

salvage said...

Yeah, that doesn't actually answer any of my questions.

Why did your god make the universe look like it's billions of years old when it's really only 6,000 years?

Why did your god make a creation that it must have know was going to become corrupt? Was that on purpose? It didn't see it coming? It's beyond its power?

See your god seem to be lacking in reality and truth, nothing it says or does makes much sense.

Is your god a trickster god like Loki or the Raven?

The Ignorant Fishermen said...


Salvage,

lol... You think your pretty smart.. even smart enough to out wit Almighty God?

Gen. 1:1-31 John 1:1-3 is all I have to say (Heb. 11:1,6). He spoke and it was. Receive it or not that is you own personal choice with ETERNAL consequences tied to them (John 3:16-17). So choose wisely.

It's all about freewill my friend. Would you want to be a robot or a man with freewill? What would you have chosen in the garden of Eden? ETERNAL bliss or lawless rebellion with horrific ETERNAL consequence?

Salvage: regardless of what the Ignorant said. Your questions are valid. God asks us to come by faith. That does not mean without questions. Since time began to be recorded after the fall of Adam and Eve. We have no idea how long they existed before the fall into sin. There is also theological room for the existence of a race of humans before Adam and Eve. For how long we aren't told.

God created man with the capacity to reject Him. Why, I believe as do others to give our love to Him value. If a person has no choice but to love you what value to you is there in that love. Even we value love because people choose to love us.

Never be scared to come with questions to learn of God. I would seek other Christian resources on the web to do so. Billy Graham for example. While Ignorant may be a good writer for believing Christians. He lacks in the gift of how to deal with those with questions. God does not give us the same gifts - so like I said look to other reputable Christian Ministey sites for answers.

>lol... You think your pretty smart.. even smart enough to out wit Almighty God?

Well your god does seem pretty ignorant about basic science, math, history, geography, geology, ethics and it is crazy, rash and prone to rage so yeah, I probably could.

If it were real of course.

>Gen. 1:1-31 John 1:1-3 is all I have to say (Heb. 11:1,6). He spoke and it was.

All that? Doesn’t match the physical evidence or what we know to be true about the origins of the Earth and the cosmos. Turns out there’s a lot more time and process involved than just a god saying some stuff and it happening.

> So choose wisely.

That I am, see it’s pretty obvious that your religion and beliefs are based on those of a tribe of Bronze Age culture that really was pretty ignorant of their world and would use myth to explain natural phenomenon.

None of it is any more true than the Egyptian, Greek, Norse or other versions.


>It's all about freewill my friend.

See that’s what I’m talking about, your god being ignorant and crazy. See if I held a gun to your head and told you to give me your wallet and then I got arrested and told the judge “Hey, he had free will, he had a choice, give me the wallet or I put a bullet in his head so I stole nothing, his choice!”

You think the jury would let me walk?

That’s not “free will” that your god is offering, it’s extortion; making demands with threats.

It’s really weird that you think that’s “love”.

Anom, Well my friend... Mr Salvage is a scoffer and having some fun and sport with us as He usually does. He can care absolutely less about any answers we might provide and his questions are aimed to agitate and to let off some steam from his sin oppressed life (Rom. 1:18-32). I know that you meant well by your reply to him but you have been deceived.

For the record (Almighty God as our witness) we have helped many through the last 5 years (God be praised) via blog responses to comments and leading some to Christ etc.

Also for the record, Billy Graham - though he gives the simple Gospel message - has been a biblical train wreck for countless years and a promoter of godless ecumenicalism and denominational pluralism. John 17:17 is not his favorite verse. If you would like read up one it more.

http://www.middletownbiblechurch.org/separate/billgram.htm

As you can see by Mr. Salvage's latest reply he can care absolutely less about answers and has a godless agenda in mind just like his father (John 8:44).

Thanks for your reply.

salvage said...

See the way you refuse to answer any of my points makes it pretty clear that you have no interest in the truth or logic.

You need your god to be real so it is; simple motivation driving a common delusion.

The Ignorant Fishermen said...

Mr. Salvage,

Your war is not with us here at the IFB be but with Almighty God. That is between you and Him and it looks like He's winning as you express your disdain for an Individual who supposedly does not exist.

Good day sir.

>Your war is not with us here at the IFB be but with Almighty God.

Um, no, not "war", it's weird how dramatic you want to make stuff and no, not with your god as it does not exist.

You've said some stuff on your blog, I've made some responses, if you can't / don't want to answer them that's fine but please don't deflect.

>That is between you and Him and it looks like He's winning

See this is what I'm talking about, how can an all-powerful god be "winning"? Wouldn't everything be exactly as it would want it to be? It created the whole universe right? Thus everything in that universe must be of its approval thus nothing in it can be against it and therefore he can't be "losing" or "winning" as it is competing against itself.

>as you express your disdain for an Individual who supposedly does not exist.

Well your god is pretty crazy, you know how much genocide it was responsible for in the Bible stories? Not just the Flood or blowing up cities but actually command wars and the slaughter of the losing side.

Which again is weird, if your god didn't like Tribe X why did it make them much less put them in the path of the tribe that your god favored?

Your god does a lot of stuff that just doesn't make any sense and usually has made more problems than solved.
