HAPPY SABBATH + Reconverted Converted Christian!?!










There Is A Contentious Matter In Christendom
Regarding
Conversion
Reconversion
AND
Real Christian Christianity
Which
Causes Christians
To Behave Un-Christian
AND
Causes Non-Christians To Curse
Called-Christians' Un-Christlike Christianity!

Wow!
That's A Mouthful!
And ... True!

Look At Sin!
Sin Transgresses God's Law!
All Men Sin
Ergo
All Men Are Sinners!

Sinners Need Forgiveness!
Forgiveness Comes From God

AND
You Need Christ To Get To God!

Christ IS The Bridge
The Stairway
To Reach God!

How Do You Get To Jesus!?

Hear The Word!
Faith Comes By Hearing
The Word Of The Lord!
The Word Says We Need A Savior
AND
The Holy Spirit Calls Us!

Our Savior Is Jesus Christ!
We Must Believe That He Is Who He Says That He Is!
We Must Believe He Can Do
What He Says He Will Do!

You Gotta Acknowledge Your Sin
And Repent And Confess!

What Has That Got To Do
With Conversion And  Reconversion?!
How Does One Get From Being Converted
To Being In Need Of Reconversion?!

We Have A Couple Of Things Going On Here:

A Convert Who Was Never Truly Heart Converted
AND
A True Convert
Who Became Complacent
AND
"Lapsed" Into Sin!
Planned Sin aka Iniquity

Which Is A Real Problem
Because
One Can Turn Away From The Obvious!

Let's Start With
Be Careful Ye That Think Ye Stand ... Lest Ye Fall
AND
Work Out Your Own Salvation 
With Fear And Trembling!

Question:
Who Was A Shepherd
Warrior Psalmist King Sweet Singer Prophet
Man After God's Own Heart?


David, Son Of Jesse!

Question:
Who Became A Lying
Fornicating Adulterer
Murderer Who Indulged
The Poisoned Pen
To Kill A Mighty Man
Who Had Been
His Faithful Friend?!

King David, Son Of Jesse!

Did David Love God?
Was David - From His Youth -
A Valiant Warrior
Zealous For God's Name?


Yes!
King David Poured Out
His Whole Heart
In Praise And Adoration
Of His God
And He Had Even Put His Life On The Line

With That Giant
- Goliath Of Gath -
As His Proof Of Love His Lord!

So You Would Say That
David Believed In
Submitted Himself To
AND
Loved Trusted
Obeyed Worshipped
Praised Glorified
Preached 

AND
Taught Of God
So That Made Him A "Converted Christian!?" 

Yes, I Would!

So, Pray Tell ...

How You Would Explain
Shepherd David
Going From The Joyful Confidence Of Psalm 23
To The Sorrow Of Repentance Of King David In Psalm 51
To The Jubilation Of Restoration Found In Psalm 32?!


He ...!
Well ...!
I Don't Know!

Let Me Help You:

Shepherd David Met God
In Nature
In The Hills Of Judah!

He Humbly Sought After His God!

King David Met Satan
On The Rooftop Of A Palace In Jerusalem!
He Revelled In His Fleshy Powers And Prowess!

King David Reacquainted Himself With His God
In The Agony Of Repentance 
On His Face Before God 
- After The Death Of Two Innocents -
As A Consequence Of His Blighted Actions!


Bottom Line ...

King David Truly Loved God
BUT ... 

The Wandering Lust In His Eye
Motivated By The Puffed-Up Pride In His Life
Lubricated By The Biting Lust Of His Flesh
Blinded Him
To The Light Of Life
AND
He Blinked
AND
Lost
His Link To Redeeming Love!


Thankfully, Though ...

Upon Being Severely Chastised
AND
Being Made Aware Of His Sure Punishment
King David's Godly Sorrow For Sin

ANDConfession Of Error
AND
Repentance For Wrongdoing
- With Real Tears Of Contrition -
Caused The Cleansing His Eyes
AND
The Restoration Of His Sight
So That - Again -
He Could See The Light Of Life!
AND

He Held On
- Never Again To Let Go -
To His Soul's Savior
The Very Savior
That Christians Today
Are Interpreting
Reinterpreting
Reinventing
Remolding
Recasting

AND
Casting Out Of Christ's Christianity!

There Is One Living God!
One Redeeming Christ!
One Chiding, Comforting Holy Spirit!
One Way To The Everlasting Father
AND
One Constant Call To Sure Salvation
While

Mercy's Door Is Still Open For Business!

Since We Need Mercy
That Obviously Means That There Is Justice!
Since There Is Justice
That Obviously Means There Is Sin (Crime)!


Sin Transgresses God's Law
BUT
The God Of Love
IS
Also The God Of Mercy
AND
Sorrowful Repentance
- Not Excuses
- Not Small Man-Made Plasters On Festering Wounds
Will Bring Us Reconciliation
To The Almighty
All-Knowing
Always Present
Can't-Be-Surprised
King Of Glory!

The Problem, Though ...

Modern Christianity
Does Not Hold With
Acknowledging Sin 

Unto Confession
Unto Repentance
Unto Reconciliation
Unto Promised

AND
Sure Salvation
By Righteousness Aka Right Living
AND
Walking With God By Faith
AND
That Is Why
Conversion
Reconversion
Is An Issue For Today
AND
Why So Many Christians
Contentedly Say:


Many Men!
Many Minds!

Let's Be Kind
And
Lift Up The Common Good
Because
Our God Who Made Us
Has Always
Our Mere Men Ways
Understood!
It's All Good!

May The Only True God
Save Us

From Our Sinful Selves!
Every Individual 

Needs A Committed 
AND
Personal Relationship
With
The Only Living Holy Saving Redeeming God
Who Can Remake Us
In His Own Holy Image
Despite What The Doctors Of The Church
Adhering To The Traditions Of Men
Now Say!!



Are You Truly Converted To Jesus Christ?
