About

For those who are hungry, for the thirsty, for those longing for reality, I hope that I might be able to offer something. I have found that in a world where hope seems to be quite scarce, there is indeed hope. I have found in a world that claims truth is relative, that there is indeed truth. I have found in world where darkness is upon the face of the deep, there is also light. I have found that this world of lovelessness there is love. I have found it in Christ Jesus – Yeshua HaMessiah.

In this blog, I find it to be a place for both my personal thoughts and expressions and wrestlings while seeking for truth and understanding, but also a place where I try to respond to some of the false teachings in Christendom. I look out and see many who are searching for someone to lead them to paths of green pastures, and rivers of living water, but are being cast down and cast out. To you, I write this.

I am adamant about the Kingdom of God and the redemption of Israel. I hope that in these writings you might find rest for your soul, not because I’m writing something impressive, but because I’m pointing out the way, the truth, and the life. May God bless each of you with His all-surpassing grace, and shine His face upon you!

  1. Hi Justin! Your writings are fascinating, I am really relating to what I’ve read, so thanks so much for your honesty and straightforward way of writing about Christianity. It’s more than just empty inspiration, but actually usable nuggets of knowledge. Thanks so much as well for liking my post; I’m so humbled you even read my writing!

  2. There is only one Truth tjustincomer and that is God’s and The Holy Spirit does not contradict His Truth, even if fleshy man doesn’t understand it. I have read the Bible many times but not always with understanding because I was Trusting in my own or in others, fleshy wisdom, reasoning and logic, Jesus is our only Teacher through the empowering of The Holy Spirit and He will lead us into all Truth not a man or a woman.

    Matthew 23:8-10 But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in Heaven. And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ. NKJV

    1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you and ye need not that any man teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things and is Truth and is no lie and even as it hath Taught you ye shall abide in Him.

    I have shared on my Blog how I was confused (see link below) and how God showed me how to recognize His Truth and man’s error, yes Jesus is still teaching me, I’m not yet Perfected in Love but I’m aiming for it as Paul did putting his past behind and his carnal flesh to death, until he was Perfected in Love and he was before he died like other Saints in the Church were but until Paul was Perfected he did not know all that was Ordained by God (1Corinthians13:10 ) but he knew what was needed for that time and his words and Authority came from God not man. (1Corinthians2)

    Confusion- http://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/my-battle-with-confusion/

    John 16:13 -15. Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come. He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of mine and shall show it unto you.

    Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore; for there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed and hid that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in Light and what ye hear in the ear that preach ye upon the housetops (KJV)

    In reference to the Redemption of Israel all those who repent and accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour will be saved regardless of their race, we are the Promised seed.

    Romans 2:28-29 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

    Galatians 3:28-29 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the Promise.

    Yes we are Spiritual Jews in Christ Jesus, we are redeemed … How good is that!

    1. While I agree that the Holy Spirit is who leads us into all truth, and that Jesus is our great Rabbi, I wouldn’t then stop there. God has given some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some evangelists, some pastors, and some teachers. There is nothing wrong with God using others who have the Holy Spirit to be able to teach truth.
      In regards to Israel, I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery. What was it that caused Paul to wish himself accursed for his Jewish kinsmen’s sake (Rom 9:1-3)? Was it simply that he was Jewish, and he was feeling a sort of emotional obligation to them as such? Or, was Paul expressing something of an apostolic distinctive? If it was mere emotion and desire that his own race come to Christ, then why is that considered God’s word? That is only Paul’s opinion. However, if it is indeed the very apostolic distinctive, then what is it that Paul knows that we don’t know?
      The thought starts in wishing himself accursed and ends in Romans 11:33-36 with such ecstatic praise that some scholars are baffled at what could be so marvelous. In between the two is the statement of how God has cast off Israel momentarily (you can also see this in Micah 5:3), therefore the Gentiles have entered into their promises, but it shall come to pass that “all Israel shall be saved” (Rom 11:26). For, “the gifts and callings of God are irrevocable” (Rom 11:29).
      While in Rom 2:28-29 you correctly point out that Paul is making the point that a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision of the heart, don’t stop there. The very next verse (3:1-4) Paul begins to establish how there is much benefit in every way to be Jewish, and that God has not forsaken them. There is a cosmic drama to unfold, something drastic must take place to break the pride of that people (Lev 26:19, Dan 12:7), which will result in them beholding whom they have pierced (Jesus) and weeping for him like one weeps for a son (Zech 12:10). It is at the redemption of Israel that all nations shall know the Lord (Isa 11:10-12, 14:1-2, 49:21-22, 66:18-19, Jer 33:8-9, Eze 11:16-20, 20:41-43, 36:33-36, 37:24-28, Amos 9:9-15, Zech 8:3, 13, 20-23, 14:16-17). This mystery is also expressed in the New Testament (Matt 19:28, Eph 1:11-14, 3:2-6, Rev 12:6, 13-17), but much of what is written in the New Testament is not written to directly expand this mystery. It is taken as a given.
      They’re salvation is based upon your compassion, for “how shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?… Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” And again later in Romans 11:31-32, “even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. For God committed them all to disobedience that he might have mercy on them all.”

  3. Thank you tjustincomer for your response, although I share God’s Truth as others do, we have one Teacher Jesus Christ as the Scriptures confirm. Men who are chosen by God and anointed to Teach, do so by the empowering of The Holy Spirit and it’s God’s Truth not fleshy man’s understanding that they Teach and it is confirmed in context in the Scriptures and understood by the empowering of The Holy Spirit.(1Corinthians2:9-16) Yes God can use the foolishness of man’s preaching but it will only be His Truth when shared that has Power to convict and change lives.

    There is only one way to the Father and that is through Jesus Christ, only the Jews that come to heart repentance which shows they believe in and accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour will be saved and as we see confirmed below only a remnant of the Jewish Nation will be saved.

    Romans 11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in for God is able to graft them in again.

    God has No favourites, we are all One in in Christ Jesus, which means we are all Spiritual Israelites, God’s chosen people regardless of our Nationality and we will all be saved even those in disbelief at this time. God knows us before we are conceived and that we will come to heart repentance and so He chooses us to be conformed into the image of Jesus and not one of us will be lost.

    Romans 9:26-28 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the Children of the living God. Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:

    Romans 2:28-29 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

    Galatians 3:28-29 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the Promise.

    Sadly man/woman today would rather as Prophesied in Scripture, Trust in their own understanding or what others tell them instead of what God confirms in His written word as taught to us by Jesus The Living Word (John1) when having asked for and received His wisdom (Proverbs 4:7) James 1:5-6 through the empowering of The Holy Spirit. (Luke 11:13) (1Corinthians2:9-16)

    Not one of us was Born with God’s wisdom or The Holy Spirit, both we ask for and receive, we must be Born Again by The Spirit putting our Carnal flesh to death as we aim to be Perfected in Love.

    1. I do believe our differences are not found in whether you can come to the Father through any other means than Jesus Christ. That much is obvious, and anyone who denies it an antichrist. Where our differences lie are in the realm of God’s eternal covenant, and what it means that God is not a man that He should lie. For myself, I am not in disagreement with the need to come to Christ. My contention is in the definition of Israel. We’ve been grafted in, but that doesn’t mean we’ve replaced Israel. God still desires a nation that would be His theocratic agent – a kingdom of priests – to bless all the families of the earth. To say that this reality can be found within the Church apart from those branches that have been temporarily cast off is to misunderstand the genius of who we are in God.
      The Church is not a new phenomenon. Jesus spoke of it, though Pentecost had not yet come (Mat 18:17). Stephen spoke of the Church that came unto Sinai in the days of Moses (Acts 7:38). The Church is the remnant that believes, whether Jewish like David and Elijah or Gentile like Ruth or Rahab. But, there shall be a day when there is not only a mere believing remnant. You can’t escape the overwhelming sweep of Romans 9-11. It ultimately climaxes at ‘all Israel shall be saved’. Either all means all, or words mean nothing and we should just quit now.

  4. It is understanding what the words mean tjustincomer and not rejecting what does not gel with our own understanding ,when it is confirmed as Truth in The Scriptures and we need God’s wisdom and empowering to understand His Truth, which we ask for and receive.

    God’s Church, His Royal Priesthood, His chosen people are not in anyone Denomination or race,(1 Corinthians 12:12-14) it is of the Heart and consists of people from every tribe and Nation, God knows those who are His from Eternity and only the Jews that come to heart repentance will be grafted in as the Scripture confirms. Romans 11:23

    Romans 9:6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:

    Galatians 3:28-29 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the Promise.

    That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

    1 Peter 2:9-10 But ye are a chosen Generation, a Royal Priesthood, an Holy Nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

    1. I obviously disagree with your usage of those Scriptures. Paul’s point in Romans 9:6 is not that we’ve replaced Israel, for the thought comes right on the heels of him wishing himself accursed for his brethren’s sake. He is simply pointing out that there has ever and always been a believing remnant along with those who are unfaithful and worship idols.
      Romans 11:23 comes after verse 15 where Paul mentions the grafting in of the natural branches will be life from the dead. Still, the apex of the thought culminates in verse 25-26 where all Israel shall be saved. Yes, currently they are in disbelief, but that disbelief shall not remain forever.
      As for Galatians, one just simply needs to read the context. Paul isn’t talking about Israel; he is talking about the church. The Greek word for church simply means “assembly”, and the church is that believing remnant within Israel. There has always been both Jew and Gentile within that believing remnant. We see this in Lot being called righteous, Abraham is called the father of many nations, Jacob is also called the father of many nations, Ephraim is proclaimed he shall be a fullness of Gentiles, Rahab and Ruth were Gentiles, Isaiah prophesies about Gentiles joining Israel when they are redeemed at the end of the age in Isa 14:1 and 56:6-8, Bathsheba was the daughter of a Hittite, and her husband was a Hittite, Egyptians joined unto Israel when they left Egypt in the exodus, and some believe that even Job was not a Jew. If you continue through Galatians 4, you find that Paul speaks of how we were only children under slavery, but we have now been adopted as sons and are now heirs. In this, he continues the analogy to explain how current Judaism/Jerusalem is still in slavery, which doesn’t prove that they are rejected, but that they are still considered children who have yet to enter into their adoption and inheritance.
      Yes, we are a kingdom of priests, which we also read in Revelation 1:6, but that is not because we’ve replaced Israel – it is because we’re grafted into Israel. We are not the “new Israel”; we’re a part of Israel. Therefore, we’re just as much a kingdom of priests as they are called to be (Ex 19:6).
      If you plan on just throwing out the same verses as if they prove your point, then this conversation is over. I believe I’ve countered your arguments already, but instead of addressing what I’ve written, you just keep saying the same thing.

    Acts 10:34-35 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every Nation He that feareth Him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with Him. (KJV)

  7. “tjustincomer” to your comment to “freedome Aussie Christian focus”; as follows;

    “Yes, we are a kingdom of priests, which we also read in Revelation 1:6, but that is not because we’ve replaced Israel – it is because we’re grafted into Israel. We are not the “new Israel”; we’re a part of Israel. Therefore, we’re just as much a kingdom of priests as they are called to be (Ex 19:6).”:

    A big AMEN I in total agreement

    Romans 11:17- Now if some branches have been broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others to share in the nourishment of the olive root, 18do not boast over those branches. If you do, remember this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. 19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in 20 That is correct: They were broken off because of unbelief, but you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you either. 22T ake notice, therefore, of the kindness and severity of God: severity to those who fell, but kindness to you, if you continue in His kindness. Otherwise you also will be cut off 23 And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again For if you were cut from a wild olive tree, and contrary to nature were grafted into one that is cultivated, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!

    They are a special people to God through which the Gospel came and He will always be drawing them to Himself. Blessings and thank you.
