Me And God Think The Same
By David J. Stewart | October 2017
1st Corinthians 2:16, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”
Here's one of my latest articles that I uploaded, with an excellent writing from Dr. Peter S. Ruckman. In this portion of his book, Brother Ruckman shows 42 things wrong with the New International Version (NIV), which he rightly calls, the “Nutty Idiot's Version”...
I love Dr. Ruckman's boldness to say it like it is, uncompromisingly, truthfully, without apology. Would to God that many more preachers would do the same, which I believe is what happens when a man is fully surrendered to the Holy Spirit.
I was thinking the other day how I wish I could burn Hollywood to the ground. I was thinking about how great it would be to burn every abortion clinic to the ground, and every tavern, and every Catholic church, burn Wall Street to the ground, burn the Federal Reserve Banks down, and all places of evil. Then the Holy Spirit reminded me of 2nd Peter 3:10, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” The Lord impressed upon my heart through the Scriptures, that we are thinking alike. It was as if God was saying to me in my soul...
“David, you and me are on the same page. You are my child, in whom my Spirit dwells, so now you think like me, your heavenly Father. I want to burn all those places to the ground too! Hey, why do you think I am going to burn the planet over with fire, burning up all the world and everything in it? Even if you had permission to burn down as many places as you'd like, you could never destroy them all. I am a step ahead of you son, I am going to purge this sin-cursed world of everything in it: every book, every movie, every magazine, every dirty picture, every filthy work, every thing that defileth, and nothing shall remain when I finish.”
My heart rejoiced as I realized that I and God are thinking the same. And then I realized why, because His blessed Holy Spirit lives in my soul.
Every Believer's Body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit
I heard a wonderful Scripture the other day from Psalms 27:4, "One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple." David said he only wanted ONE THING from the Lord, to dwell in the House of the Lord (the temple where God dwelt) all the days of his life, so that he could be with the Lord. David loved God and desired to be with Him. I agreed with David wholeheartedly, and then I realized a beautiful truth that burned my heart with joy... I AM THE TEMPLE OF GOD TODAY! 1st Corinthians 3:16, "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?" David wanted to dwell in God's temple, BUT MY BODY IS GOD'S TEMPLE!!! Praise the Lord!
Before Jesus raised up from the dead, the Holy Spirit didn't indwell believers as He does today. The Holy Spirit came upon Old Testament saints for power and wisdom, but He did not permanently live inside the body as He does today. WE ARE SO BLESSED!!! Every born-again child of God's body is THE TEMPLE OF GOD. What a wonderful truth!!! I am the temple of God, which David would have chopped off an arm, plucked out an eye, or given anything to have as we do today. Yet, most people see no value in such a great thing. They turn away Christ. They scoff, reject and despise the Gospel counting it as foolishness (1st Corinthians 1:21).
My heart rejoices when I stop to think that I and God are thinking the same. And then I realize why, because His blessed Holy Spirit lives in my soul. God's very being resides in my body and soul. John 14:23, “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” John 14:16-17, “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” Whew, that's good stuff!!! God lives in my very person!!! My body is the TEMPLE of the Holy Spirit.
God's Unspeakable Gift of Eternal Life
Oh my friend, if you are not born-again, you are missing out on God's speaking gift!!! 2nd Corinthians 9:15, “Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.” Eternal life is God's gift to “whosoever believeth.” ...
John 3:15, “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 12:46, “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.”
Acts 10:43, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.”
1st John 5:1, “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.”
Anyone who BELIEVES (TRUSTS) the “GOOD NEWS” of Christ crucified, buried and risen is saved.
Tragically, due to the demonic influence of the modern Alexandrian Bible versions, most pastors and evangelists have been corrupted concerning the plan of salvation. I am so sick of reading lame, corrupt, junk religious tracts. Someone asked me the other day what I thought about a tract they handed me. I read it. It was nauseating. The tract is titled, “What Must You Believe To Be Saved?” (this is a link to the actual tract) published by “Moments With The Book.” Please notice that they list 11 things which you must believe to be saved. My friend, where does the Holy Bible say that we must “Believe that God loves us” to be saved? It does not. Does a person have to “Believe that the Bible is the Word of God to be saved?” No, they only need to believe the Gospel. The apostle Paul defines “the Gospel” in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 as: Christ's death on the cross for our sins, His burial and bodily resurrection. I am against requiring eleven things to believe to be saved, because it is unbiblical. If you believe (place your confidence in) the simple GOOD NEWS of the Lord Jesus Christ, you have eternal life. John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”
Pastors Who Don't Walk Closely With God, Don't Fight for the Purity of God's Word
Do you know why most pastors don't stand for the truth? It is because they are not in agreement with God!!! Amos 3:3, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” Most preachers don't walk with God as they ought. That is, they don't walk in the Spirit properly. Ephesians 5:9, “For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth.” When a pastor, evangelist or Bible teacher doesn't tell the truth, I know something is very wrong with his walk with God. The man who walks with God cares about the truth and thinks like God. Since God cares about truth, so will the Christian who walks closely with the Lord. Boy this is good stuff!!!
God's Word gives us understanding, which compels us to HATE EVERY FALSE WAY. Psalms 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” This explains why so many pastors and Bible colleges today are dropping the ball for God, indifferent toward the raging debate over the inspiration of the King James Bible. They refuse to join the battle. They refuse to suffer reproach for the name of Jesus Christ. They don't want to be put outside the gate with Jesus. They refuse to associated with the King James Bible ONLYism crowd. They refuse to expose the modern Bible PERversions, which are all based upon the corrupt Alexandrian manuscripts. Psalms 119:104 says that the man who abides in the Scriptures, gains understanding, which inspires him to HATE!!! Hate what? HATE EVERY FALSE WAY!!! I absolutely HATE the modern Bible PERversions. I vehemently HATE the New International Version (NIV). I HATE deceptions of every sort. I HATE the crooked Federal Reserve Banking System, which robs people of the fruit of their labors. I HATE shady business contracts and the crooked lawfirms who devise such evil imaginations.
Psalms 119:128, “Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.”
I and God think the same, and WE HATE these same rotten things...
Proverbs 6:16-19, “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”
Why did Solomon say it like that? Why did he say God hates SIX things, yea (not only so, but), SEVEN are an abomination (something God intensely hates) unto Him. I think it is because the first six sins fall under the umbrella of the seventh. That is, all of the first mentioned six sins sow discord amongst brethren, dividing them. Pride is destroying our churches today. Lying tongues and false prophets are wreaking havoc upon the churches! When I think about it, the ungodly counterfeit Bible publishing industry are GUILTY of all these evils. Biblica, Nelson Publishers, Zondervan, Holman, Cornerstone and umpteen more, have PERVERTED THE WORDS OF THE LIVING GOD. Jeremiah 23:36, “And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.” These ungodly Bible publishers have a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that are swift in running to mischief, false witnesses who speak lies, and THEY ARE CAUSING DIVISION IN THE CHURCHES!!! They have sowed incalculable discord amongst brethren, with their hundreds of English Bible revisions.
“Anyone who thinks that he can find the errors in the AV (as Origen found them in the Hebrew Old Testament) and then, after correcting 64,000 of them (that is the number of changes found in the NIV and NASV), still cannot produce an inerrant “Bible,” is not in anyone’s “humility” bracket. They BOAST ABOUT THEIR ABILITY TO CORRECT GOD ALMIGHTY.” —Dr. Peter S. Ruckman, “The Mythological Septuagint,” page 60.
“The first two requirements of a Biblical scholar are a humble mind and a believing heart (1 Cor. 1-2; Isa. 29; Luke 10; 1 Thess. 2; Deut. 29:29).” —Dr. Peter S. Ruckman, “The Alexandrian Cult Series,” page 75.
Do you think like God my friend? But doesn't the Old testament say that God's thoughts are not our thoughts? Yes, but notice who doesn't think like God... “THE WICKED”!!! ... “THE UNRIGHTEOUS MAN”!!! ...
Isaiah 55:7-8, “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.”
Every Christian believer can and ought to have THE MIND OF CHRIST. Ephesians 4:20-24, “But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” Colossians 3:9, “Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him.” To the same degree that our thinking is in alignment with the inspired Words of God in the King James Bible, we have the mind of God in us. The average believer today thinks all wrong, carnally-minded, yet religious enough to be blinded to their own carnality. I love what Dr. Jack Hyles (1926-2001) said...
“I believe any man in this world, can love any other man in this world, if he thinks right! The reason you hate is because you think hate. The reason you love is because you think love.” —Dr. Jack Hyles, a quote from the excellent MP3 sermon, “What The Law Could Not Do” (July 5, 1987 - First Baptist Church of Hammond, PM service).
Oh my dear friend, if you are God's child, you “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” (1st John 2:27b).
1st Corinthians 2:16, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”

“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.” ―Elie Wiesel
I am appalled at the indifference amongst professed Christians today concerning the corrupting of God's Word. They just don't care which Bible is God's Word. I'm talking about thousands of shameful apostate religious colleges today, that are INDIFFERENT toward the hundreds of perverted English Bibles, all of which are the Devil's way of depriving people of the true and pure Word of God. Consequently, there are many false plans of salvations being taught in the churches today, mainly the heresy of manmade repentance, aka, Lordship Salvation. Here is a truthful quote from Pastor Jack Hyles...

special rebuke, again and again and again in the Bible,
toward those people who keep their neutrality in the work of God!”
