A couple of days ago I mentioned Destiny Church as a object of hate. The leaders there don't care. So when the wife of the bishop, Hannah Tamaki, said that she would not take the covid jab, then all hell broke loose. Including people who should know better going where angels fear to tread. Stating that they know the mind of God.
Broadcaster Hilary Barry has taken a swipe at Hannah Tamaki after the Destiny Church co-leader shunned controversy around the Tamaki family's travels during level 3 and added that she would not take the Covid-19 vaccine.
Taking to social media, Hilary Barry wrote that "Jesus would get the jab", hitting at the Christian values that the Tamaki couple say they stand for.
On Instagram, in the caption accompanying her image, Barry wrote: "An alternative Christian perspective for Hannah Tamaki's followers".
A note to the less astute, such as journalists. A good preacher meditates and prays and considers the text of the word of God. The word of God is living and active and will not return wtthout doing the work of God. The main reason for this blog is to put up the lectionary posts, and the reason this blog is anonymous is that journalists and politicians in New Zealand have a habit of doxxing people for pageviews and virtue signalling. They did that to my Dad, and they did this to me.
Vox Day is correct. No one should talk to such.
Understand, instead, that the things of God are holy. They are not for us. Israel was called to be a nation of preists to the nations, and the first thing they had to learn is that getting too close to hte glory of God is lethal.
Before Christ. For he destoyed the divisions of rotection and replaced them with himself. He is our high priest.
9 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I will come to you in a thick cloud, so that the people may hear when I speak with you and may also trust in you forever.” Then Moses told the words of the people to the Lord.
10 The Lord also said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and have them wash their garments; 11 and have them ready for the third day, for on the third day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people. 12 But you shall set boundaries for the people all around, saying, ‘Beware that you do not go up on the mountain or touch the border of it; whoever touches the mountain shall certainly be put to death. 13 No hand shall touch him, but he shall certainly be stoned or shot through; whether animal or person, the violator shall not live.’ When the ram’s horn sounds a long blast, they shall come up to the mountain.” 14 So Moses went down from the mountain to the people and consecrated the people, and they washed their garments. 15 He also said to the people, “Be ready for the third day; do not go near a woman.”
30 “After forty years had passed, an angel appeared to him in the wilderness of Mount Sinai, in the flame of a burning thorn bush. 31 When Moses saw it, he was astonished at the sight; and as he approached to look more closely, the voice of the Lord came: 32 ‘I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob.’ Moses shook with fear and did not dare to look closely. 33 But the Lord said to him, ‘Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground. 34 I have certainly seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their groaning, and I have come down to rescue them; and now come, I will send you to Egypt.’
35 “This Moses whom they disowned, saying, ‘Who made you a ruler and a judge?’ is the one whom God sent to be both a ruler and a deliverer with the help of the angel who appeared to him in the thorn bush. 36 This man led them out, performing wonders and signs in the land of Egypt and in the Red Sea, and in the wilderness for forty years. 37 This is the Moses who said to the sons of Israel, ‘God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your countrymen.’ 38 This is the one who was in the assembly in the wilderness together with the angel who spoke to him at length on Mount Sinai, and who was with our fathers; and he received living words to pass on to you. 39 Our fathers were unwilling to be obedient to him; on the contrary they rejected him and turned back to Egypt in their hearts, 40 saying to Aaron, ‘Make us a god who will go before us; for this Moses who led us out of the land of Egypt—we do not know what happened to him.’
Kea is a little scared that I'm calling out a journalist who has made a career about of being offensive. I will admit to thinking that trolling her woudl be easy. But that is not edifying.
Instead, I would say to anyone who claims to speak for Jeesus the following: do you have a personal relationship with him? Have you repented from your sins and turned to the cross? Do you understand that there is the things of God, and the things of man, and that they are different?
Christ was sent to earth to provide us a means of salvation, and it is the only means of salvation.
Throughout history, people have turned instead to other means, called themselves good when none are good, callted their pracitces spiritual when they do not have a gram of the glory of God.
Do not be them. Our God is glorioous.
