Recommended Sites (UR-Related)
« on: July 23, 2011, 10:38:07 AM »
Sometimes when surfing out on the web, perhaps researching a topic, etc., I come across interesting sites I'd like to share.  However, sometimes they don't exactly fit an active thread, and I just decide to skip it.

I thought I'd start this thread where anyone can post a site they think would be edifying and/or worth other taking a look if interested.  I'll start with this one I ran across when Googling "hell is a mistranslation".   Feel free to add your own.  Blessings, James.

"If you didn't speak English, but were fluent in the ancient Hebrew and Greek languages in which the Bible was written, and you read through the Bible 1000 times in Hebrew and Greek, you would have no idea what "hell" is. It would never cross your mind that such a place existed."

That should be printed on the title page of every Bible printed today hence.

   when I was first called out of Babylon.....I went reading and searching the scriptures......I remember thinking......

      that even if I lived a thousand years twice over......I would never understand it on my own. That unless HE TOLD ME....I would

    die without understanding.

     for the WORD OF GOD is like a book sealed..........and Jesus Christ is the Only one worthy to open the seals and declare/reveal our Father,

    the son and the man of sin,the mystery of godlessness and godliness,the false prophet..the beast,the adversary...the WILL OF THE FATHER

  AND THE DEVINE PLAN. Through His Holy Spirit He declares all these things to us pertaining to the REVEALATION OF CHRIST.......

    TODAY THESE PROPHESIES IN REVEALATION ARE BEING FULFILLED IN HIM....THE DAY OF THE LORD IS HERE AND WE ARE WITTNESS'S


      The whole creation has been groaning for this revealing and will releif along with us

     God himself will establish her

    Micah 4   the Mountain of the Lord

    The mountain of the Lord's temple will be established as cheif among the mountains,it will be raised above the hills,

   and people's will stream to it.   Many nations will come and say, COME LET US GO UP TO THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD

   HE WILL TEACH US HIS WAYS,SO THAT WE MAY WALK IN HIS PATHS

   THE LAW WILL GO OUT FROM ZION,THE WORD OF THE LORD FROM JERUSALEM

   HE WILL JUDGE BETWEEN MANY PEOPLES,AND WILL SETTLE DISPUTES FOR STRONG NATIONS,FAR AND WIDE


    AS FOR YOU,O'WATCHTOWER OF THE FLOCK,O'STRONGHOLD OF THE DAUGHTER OF ZION

    THE FORMER DOMINION WILL BE RESTORED TO YOU

   KINGSHIP WILL COME TO THE DAUGHTER OF JERUSALEM


    RISE AND THRESH O'DAUGHTER OF ZION[remove the chaff]

   FOR I WILL GIVE YOU HORNS OF IRON[shepherd the nations with rod of iron]

  I WILL GIVE YOU HOOFS OF BRONZE[my judgments]

AND YOU WILL BREAK TO PEICES MANY NATIONS[clay pots]

  YOU WILL DEVOTE THEIR ILL-GOTTEN GAINS TO THE LORD

  THEIR WEALTH TO THE LORD OF ALL THE EARTH


    Isaaih 60   ARISE SHINE FOR YOUR LIGHT HAS COME,AND THE GLORY OF THE LORD RISES UPON YOU,

   SEE,DARKNESS COVERS THE EARTH AND THICK DARKNESS COVERS THE PEOPLE

  BUT THE LORD RISES UPON YOU,AND HIS GLORY APPEARS OVER YOU

  NATIONS WILL COME TO YOUR LIGHT AND KINGS TO THE BRIGHTNESS OF YOUR DAWN...

   YOUR SONS COME FROM AFAR AND YOUR DAUGHTERS ARE CARRIED ON THE ARM

I didn't read it yet, but I definitely will in the near future.

Well, I did read it (finally; there's just too much stuff to read) and I found out the author has written another book(let) called "God's Unfailing Plan Revealed in the Eons". In the book the author takes an in-depth look at each individual eon, and explains them in detail.

Too bad the book seems to be out of print, but I managed to find an used copy. If there's any interest I could try scanning it, or at least some of it.

I was reading about Christian Universalism on wikipedia, and ran across a former Baptist preacher, Dick King, who was described as believing in ultimate reconciliation, his congregation had left the denomination, and they are a functioning fellowship of Victorious Gospel believers.  I found their site, what they believe etc. to be a blessing, thought I'd share it here... blessings

It's really worth taking some time to check out some of the tabs on their site.  One such;

We celebrate paradox
The New Testament is full of paradox. The last shall be first; the dead will live; wisdom is foolishness; you find your life by losing it; only the dead live; only the weak are strong; only those that know they are sick can get well; those that mourn are comforted; those that are bankrupt get the kingdom; those that are hungry and thirsty are filled. No wonder Jesus said this gospel is hidden from the wise and intelligent but is made known to the babes.

The Apostle Paul says that the cross is foolishness to those that are perishing but to those that are being saved it is the power of God. There is a way that seems right to man but the end thereof is destruction. The ultimate paradox is why did the God of the universe become a curse and die. It has to be a paradox because no one can figure that out. Now we have to be at the mercy of God to reveal it which lets us come like children. So Jesus said let the children come to me for such is the kingdom of God. A central paradox is John 12:24. If a grain of wheat dies it will bring much fruit but if it does not die it will remain by itself. So if you want the life of a wheatfield, the grain has to die. However, one of the most practical paradoxes for the Christian life is coming to the realization that weakness is strength.

Years ago I was a student at Southwestern Seminary. All I knew was that I was called to be a preacher and surely with God's help I could do it. That is all I knew. That is all I had ever been told. Soon after I got there I began to realize that emotionally, mentally, as well as spiritually, I could not do what it took to pull off what was required of me. The harder I tried the more desperate I became till one day I felt like a hamster that had been running on a wheel and fell flat on my stomach on the wheel and could not go any further.

To paraphrase my prayer, it was something like this, "I don't have a clue what to do nor am I even sure you are listening but all I know is I can't do this any more." A friend that very day, not knowing any of what I was going through, gave me a book called The Release of the Spirit by Watchman Nee. It is a real short paperback book that simply makes the statement that unless the strength of a man is broken to the place he knows he can't use it any more, he can never really be used by God. God never wanted me to use my strength but wanted me to continually give up my strength and be weak so that he could be strong in me.

Paul the Apostle said as much in 2 Corinthians 12:7-10. Paraphrased, Paul said, "God I don't have the strength to deal with the weaknesses of my life. I don't have the strength to deal with the issues of my life. I have asked you three times to give me strength but three times you have said 'no, but your grace would be sufficient.'" It was like a light dawned in Paul's head for he realized the truth. It is His strength in me, not me. That is the way this life is supposed to work. The Apostle so caught it he said, therefore, I boast about my weakness so that God's power may rest upon me.
(TOP)

We celebrate weakness
We take to heart and are encouraged by Jesus when he said blessed are the bankrupt in spirit for theirs is the kingdom. So every Sunday we come as needy "beggars" freed from having to do anything to please God from our own self effort. We also come convinced that we can't do it anyway. We celebrate receiving the kingdom with his life and all of its freshness because we come admitting that we are empty vessels. This gives God the freedom and the joy of filling us with himself.

One day Jesus was out beside the lake. A large crowd came around him. As he went along he met a man named Levi, who was a tax collector, and told him to follow him. Jesus went with Levi to have dinner with Levi and his fraudulent friends. Tax collectors were noted for being criminal, much like we would call the Mafia today. They made their money by skimming off the top of what they over collected, plus they worked for the Roman government and in a way betrayed their own people. They were quite a crooked and desperate lot. The religious church leaders criticized Jesus and said he was terrible because he ate with sinners and tax collectors. When Jesus heard them, he made this incredible statement, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor but the sicků"

The bottom line is this, if you can be good and do good (i.e. if you are healthy) then you don't need me because a physician can only come to and help sick people. At Indian Hills we certainly want Jesus to come so we freely acknowledge and celebrate that we are weak. The irony is that those that keep admitting they are sick can keep being made well -- another paradox. The sick are well and those that say they are well are sick. Crazy, but it's glorious freedom and life. It brings us great joy.

I just finished reading a brand new site that is absolutely fantastic.  It is fresh, simple yet profound, deep yet very friendly with some humor mixed in. Great for a young person or newcomer to UR.  The author walks you through the Scriptures in a process that is well ordered and effective: 

http://www.bestpossiblenews.com/



I will add ours as well.  We have used the images of Story and are appealing to the evangelicals who are currently using UR language while denying they have embraced it (!) The site includes a list of questions for the traditionalists as well as for us.   There are study helps, testimonies and articles with a blog attached for discussion. Also an extensive collection of worship songs that declare the UR message.

I want to remind folks of Dora Van Assen.  Her testimony and witness is one of the most powerful things I've ever read directly related to ultimate reconciliation.
