04 Aug Mass Shootings and the Evil Attack on Men (Church, Aug 4, 2019)
Church on Sunday, August 4, 2019, streamed live video on YouTube, Facebook, Periscope, DLive, Mixer, and Twitch. (NOTE: DLive, Mixer, and Twitch do not preserve past video streams long.) Look for our audio recordings of the service afterward on Apple, TuneIn, Spreaker, Stitcher, and SoundCloud.
Mass Shootings and the Evil Attack on Men
We talked about the mass shootings in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH. The children of the lie are doing what they’re supposed to do: Bring forth evil. Overcome anger and emotions by forgiving your mother. Men are hated because they represent Christ on earth, known since Adam and Eve. Get rid of the man, and it’s easy to destroy women and children. White straight men are the most hated species on this side of heaven. CNN predictably attacked President Trump and celebrated the fact that whites are becoming a minority.
Overcome the intellect. God’s intellect is greater than Satan’s intellect. You can’t trust these “experts,” psychologists and psychiatrists. These people hate morality. Even Buddhists don’t find real peace, because they don’t face anything, but rather they hide.
Study the Scriptures to Show Yourself Approved?
One young man disagrees with Jesse about studying the Bible. He says the Bible says, “Study the scriptures to show yourself approved.” Others talk about this idea. One woman touches on feeling bad for the shooter’s mother, and what it means to love all people.
One man is not a Christian but is trying to follow the Bible. His girlfriend asks Jesse how to get saved and not be evil anymore. She’s 22, from Texas, and lets slip a cuss word while describing what it’s like there. She says her mother supported wrong, smoking weed and drinking with her. Her father she called a “cheater and a liar.” She resented him going after women when she needed him as her father. Jesse urges her to go and forgive, and not apologize for how she was while growing up.
Another man is for studying the Bible, which he calls the “word of God.” But Jesse says that the notion that you should “study” the Bible was put there by the enemies of good. God wrote his Word in our hearts. The Bible is a book of letters by people who were inspired, but it’s like if Jesse were to write a letter to Reggie saying, “Don’t be angry.” It’s not going to save you — rather, you must know God for yourself, and not get caught up in intellectual knowledge. But don’t believe Jesse either; rather you should know for yourself.

Ask Reggie about these scriptures, anytime the word “Word” appears put “Bible” in it’s place. I used to think that when the Word was spoken about here in these passages it was talking about the “Bible”.
This is wrong since what we refer to as the Bible today, it didn’t even exist when these scriptures were spoken. What Word(s) is God speaking to us TODAY, in this present age and time?
We’re not positively sure since we place more emphasis on the Bible today rather than being still and listening to the God who lives in us.
Hebrews 4:12 International Children’s Bible (ICB)
12 God’s word is alive and working. It is sharper than a sword sharpened on both sides. It cuts all the way into us, where the soul and the spirit are joined. It cuts to the center of our joints and our bones. And God’s word judges the thoughts and feelings in our hearts.
Christ Comes to the World
1 Before the world began, there was the Word. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 All things were made through him. Nothing was made without him. 4 In him there was life. That life was light for the people of the world. 5 The Light shines in the darkness. And the darkness has not overpowered[b] the Light.
6 There was a man named John[c] who was sent by God. 7 He came to tell people about the Light. Through him all people could hear about the Light and believe. 8 John was not the Light, but he came to tell people about the Light. 9 The true Light was coming into the world. The true Light gives light to all.
10 The Word was in the world. The world was made through him, but the world did not know him. 11 He came to the world that was his own. But his own people did not accept him. 12 But some people did accept him. They believed in him. To them he gave the right to become children of God. 13 They did not become his children in the human way. They were not born because of the desire or wish of some man. They were born of God.
14 The Word became a man and lived among us. We saw his glory—the glory that belongs to the only Son of the Father. The Word was full of grace and truth. 15 John told about him. He said, “This is the One I was talking about. I said, ‘The One who comes after me is greater than I am. He was living before me.’”
16 The Word was full of grace and truth. From him we all received more and more blessings. 17 The law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No man has ever seen God. But God the only Son is very close to the Father.[d] And the Son has shown us what God is like.
