Matthew Chapter 2 Nick Blog Daily Bible Study God speaks through The Occult and Sorcery

by madgeniusbiz | on May 13, 2013





 





Matthew Chapter 2  Daily Simple Bible Study  God speaks through The Occult and Sorcery

 

Watch the Occult and Sorcery VIDEO here...

If you are new here you will quickly learn that this blog is not for the in-depth bible studier. I do not get into the Greek or Hebrew this or that. On a rare occasion I will but typically this is a place for a Quick Touch or Glance at Scripture.

I will ask thought provoking questions and maybe bring up very controversial ideas. I love to ask questions and I'm always learning so your comments and ideas are needed.

Sometimes God speaks more clearly through the Occult, Sorcery, and Astrology than through Scripture.

I see this weird fear from most Christians towards the Occult, Sorcery, Astrology, and Magic? Why? God speaks through and uses these things sometimes instead of the bible or prayer. Don't believe me :)  let's read the scripture Matthew Chapter 2 ...

Matthew Chapter 2 verses 1-12

This is straight from Youversion.com it's probably the easiest and best online bible for simple study. They also have a great App for your phone. Matthew Chapter 2

The Magi Visit the Messiah

1After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem

2and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him."

3When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.

4When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born.

5"In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written:

6" ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,

are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;

for out of you will come a ruler

who will shepherd my people Israel.'

7Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared.

8He sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him."

9After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was.

10When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.

11On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

12And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.

God used Astrology to invite Sorcerers to His son's birth!

Nick blog bible study mathew chapter 2

Here in Matthew Chapter 2 verses 1 and 2 we see that "Magi" came to Jerusalem. Ok first off Magi were not "Godly" Jewish priest lol. Most likely they were priest from a religion called Zoroastrianism. More info here on that... They were not "Christians, or Jews" lol

We have this vision of 3 wise kings that were from a different part of the world but they were still Jewish at least right? Noooooooo! They weren't. Are you ready for this? They were actually where we get the name Magic from. Directly associated with the occult. The word is Greek I think lol look at me getting all fancy ;)

Here in Matthew Chapter 2 It's the same word used to describe the people Daniel dealt with and lead as the leader of the magicians. Dan 2:48

Then the king placed Daniel in a high position and lavished many gifts on him. He made him ruler over the entire province of Babylon and placed him in charge of all its wise men.

nick blog bible study matthew chapter 2

So maybe not the type of people you would have hanging around your new born baby? These guys studied Astrology, they were renowned across the world in their field.

What is Astrology? This is from Wikipedia

Astrology consists of belief systems which hold that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world. In the West, astrology most often consists of a system of horoscopes that claim to explain aspects of a person's personality and predict future events in their life based on the positions of the sun, moon, and other planetary objects at the time of their birth. Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and the Indians, Chinese, and Mayans developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations.

nick blog bible study matthew chapter 2

Matthew Chapter 2 Says nothing about there being 3 wise men...

Switching gears for a second here lol just because I like getting people to think. Ask any Christian how many wise men were there in Matthew Chapter 2, and I would guess 99% would say 3.

However the bible doesn't tell us how many wise men there were.

Historically there was probably 12 in the group.

So why do we all think 3? Because we have not learned to question yet... Stick around with me and i'll help you learn to question everything you ever believed! Lol and it's not to disprove of your beliefs it's the exact opposite! It's so you know what is really true and how you can prove that!

Most think 3 just because of the mention of 3 gifts. :)

nick blog bible study matthew chapter 2

God speaks through whatever the hell He wants to :)  Even the Occult, Astrology, or Whatever else you think is from the Devil

So Matthew Chapter 2 verse 2 we see the answer to the question of how did these "Magi" astrology sorcerer guys find Baby Jesus? It says

and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him."

So these guys were doing their little Astrology stuff lol and poof God showed them the revelation of the Son being born and where He would be born and they were lead by this "Star". Now we know stars don't move maybe it was a supernatural event or perhaps a "Planet" and not a star at all...

The point is We have ZERO RECORD of anyone reading the scripture and finding Baby Jesus. These Heathens and Sorcerers found Him by God's leading. The lowly shepherds got a special invitation too however not from reading the scripture...

God is speaking and leading people in ways that you don't even know or would even believe that God would be involved or among such horrible things...

Thinking about Matthew Chapter 2 [Praying] God help me to be open to how you romance people in the way that they can receive and hear, teach me how to do the same...

Please always  leave a quick comment...

Let me know your favorite verse of the day or go ahead and leave a huge dissertation on your own insights in the chapters of the day. We can all learn from each other and have great discussions in the comments.

The comments are also an excellent place to ask questions and I will answer them as best I can personally! What do you think about the all this astrology stuff? What do you think about this chapter, what do you draw out of it?  Comment below...

The Church Uncensored Hangout What does being a Manly Man look like in the Church? Ep2

by madgeniusbiz | on May 11, 2013





 





The Church Uncensored Hangout Ep 2

 

Watch The Church Uncensored Hangout VIDEO here...

The Church Uncensored Hangout

We sit around at star bucks or Applebees and discuss the issues of the day so we decided to instead jump on Google Hangout and hit record.

This content is unedited and no set topic. We talk about the tough questions and topics that lots of people won't even touch! We want you to join us! Whether you believe similar or different than we do. If you want to join us from time to time or just once let me or Roger know through Facebook and we will invite you sometime!

We had a question this week from Joshua Manuhwa about peer pressure among the youth and how they can not be affected by it.

3:00 I read the peer pressure question and let Roger answer it first lol

He talks about how just by growing close to God that it naturally affects the way he lives his life. The relationship or the value of that relationship that keeps him making good choices.

He says something at 6:50 that I love! Watch and hear it from his mouth!

7:45 I give it a go lol. I talk about being raised in a Christian really conservative family. I talk about that I was scared to death to do anything wrong lol

9:00 minutes I expand on why maybe that might not be the best way to go about it lol

11:40 I speak about my Automatic Response to the LOVE Being!

14:50 I mention how God almost pleads to us not to do things that will hurt us...

16:30 we stop trying to scare the hell out of our kids.

17:35 I recommend the book by Danny Silk. It's called "Loving your kids on purpose?"

The Church Uncensored Hangout

What are some Bible Verses that you think speak about peer pressure?

We tackle the Wussification in the Church lol

The Church Uncensored Hangout

23:15 Next topic and or question lol.

Is based off a Google Hangout here... We mentioned the lack of brotherly love in the church, and even in the western culture.

Roger mentioned that in India men put their arms around each other and hold hands and it's not a big deal.

27:51 I ask Roger about "Being Manly" He starts off talking about Jesus being Badassed lol

Jesus got his butt whipped and hung on a cross almost about to die and He didn't say a word. How many of you manly men have gone through that?

Jesus loved like a man and He served like a man. Roger expands here...

33:00 Roger talks about being a MMA Fighter and a Boxing Coach before, but then says that the ability to love and be gentle is much more Manly!

34:10 Nick takes over talking about his struggles with being manly.

I talk about how it's been hard on men to know how to love because their own fathers were harsh and mean. So most dads are trying as best or hard as they can...

35:00 I tell the tractor story about my dad here...

39:20 I talk about the decision to be a Manly Man as a lover and compassionate!

Mary jesus feet

A Manly Man get's down in the dirt with the prostitute

41:50 I talk about my sweet sweet boy. And how he reveals to me how to be manly...

45:00 Roger jumps back in with another point about being the same no matter who is around... That's another Manly thing...

45:55 I begin to pray and speak to whoever is watching and edify them...

Praying for a generation of kids who do not know their fathers...

48:00 If you have been abused by your father or a man, if you have been shamed by a man or verbally just ripped to shreds then you need to watch this here...

53:00 Roger closes up shop for us...

Nick Rodriguez Co-Founder of The Church Uncensored Talks Abortion and Pro-Choice in the Church

by madgeniusbiz | on May 7, 2013





 





 

Abortion and Pro-Choice in the Church

 

Watch Abortion, Pro-Choice VIDEO here...

If you LOVE ABORTION you will fit in at The Church Uncensored

The Church Uncensored

Ok I know this is a VERY serious topic for A LOT of people so I apologize for the above statement but it's true.

I will say that I don't think there are many people in the "I love abortion" category.

I think most would like to prevent unwanted pregnancies wayyyyy more than just having more abortions. I have never heard someone really say "What we need more is Abortions in America!" No I do hear, that we have lots of people who believe abortions should be available for anyone who needs one.

So this is not really the BLOG for explaining the Pro-Choice, Pro-Abortion stance. That's not what this is about :)  I will however try and explain the stance in a way where hopefully you as a Pro-Life or Anti-Abortion person can maybe see my reasoning for not kicking people who are Pro-Choice or Pro-Abortion out of the doors of the church.

The Church Uncensored AbortionSo wait :)  this is a no brainer, I mean how can you even be a Christian if you believe in killing little babies right?

Well I think if anyone really believed that Abortion was killing a life they would be, of course something wrong with them.

That's why they wear the Red Tape with Life on their mouths to counter the Anti-Life folk! That's just it though...

Attention Pro-Life People, there are no Pro-Death People

People who are Pro-Choice do NOT believe you are killing a life. It's that simple.  I know it's not simple at all but the point is simple. You as a Pro-Life person have been seeing Pro-Choice people as people who are Anti-Life and who want to kill babies.

No wonder you haven't really gotten anywhere with your agenda... You don't even know the other sides argument or stand. That is a huge mistake. I learned in Debate class that to really be able to believe in my belief I needed to be able to argue the other side or the coin in a believable manner. I needed to know their side of things better than they do.

Pro-Choice folk don't see life as so black and white as Pro-Lifer's do. When a life becomes a life. Also they value life not all the same. For example.

Say you were in a building where they were doing the test tube baby stuff. So there are 1,000′s of embryos ready to be put into a woman. Then all of a sudden the building catches on fire!

You understand that you don't have much time to get out safely so you turn to run out... when you see out of the corner of your eyes two children scared and kneeling in the corner afraid to move. The see you and cry out for help! As you go to them you look and see the 1,000′s of embryo's in the whatever thing you keep embryo's in :)

Now you have no time to save everyone so you make the easy choice and save which lives? The 2, or the 1,000′s? Black and white isn't it?

You don't even think twice and leave the 2 kids who are now screaming for help not understanding why you grabbed some dishes instead of helping them? They die and you have to give an explanation to their parents... They pat you on the back and COMPLETLY understand and tell you that of course you made the right decision....?

I don't know?

Pro-Life and Pro-Choice both of you can belong in The Church Uncensored and we can be brothers and sisters still...

Talk to me... Comment below your thoughts. Did this make you think at all? Was my story stupid lol or did that at least open your heart and mind to where the Pro-Choice people are in this conversation?

Im fourteen, Im an animal/nature freak, I play guitar, ukulele, piano, and I sing too.

Im a total and complete nutjob, and run around like a wild animal!

Bare feet is what I live for! I am fairly interested in hunting, and if I ever go hunting I wanna go bow hunting. :) (Archery comes naturally to me)

I don't care for makeup too much unless its for special occasions, and I HATE dressing up! (Most of the time)

Im not too much of a girly girl, but I'm not a tomboy either... so I guess I'm just, normal, I suppose.

At the moment, Im not interested in relationships, and I don't really have the time. 

MY ALL TIME FAVORITE BANDS ARE: Flyleaf, Three Days Grace, Relient K, and Paramore. Interesting combo I know...

Jesus is my savior and my Lord, and I will live for Him all the days of my life!

My favorite Quote's are:

Don't cry because it's over, Smile because it happened. ~ Dr. Suess

No tears for the writer, no tears for the reader. No surprise for the writer, no surprise for the reader. ~  Robert Frost 

 As you may be able to tell I love books, and I love to write! IM A BOOK WORM! You might say... Hey, a good imagination is just the beginning of a wonderful adventure!   

Anyway, I think I've said it all!

 THIS IS ME! <3 

 


freebelievers

                                                            WHO HE REALLY IS

You can safely assume that you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do. ~Anne Lamott

Paul wrote in his letter to the Galatians “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” The fruit of the Spirit, is the by product of the Holy Spirit (God), in us. Christ in our hearts will produce this... love, joy, and peace etc. Now, the reason the Spirit will produce those things in our lives is, because, this is the character and nature of God. God is love, joy, peace etc. When we have Him in our lives, we will begin to manifest these things. The problem comes when we believe that God is the exact opposite of these things. Religion causes us to believe, that God, is angry, and has no personality, and wants to execute His wrath upon mankind. Religion causes us to believe in a god that has no patience with us, what so ever, and he is not gentle, but is a hard taskmaster. This paradigm of god creates a deity who is not good at all, and will turn on his people at the drop of a hat. This god is driven by impulse and seems like he is unable to control himself. Now, if we believe God is like this, it is no wonder that we behave just like the God we believe in. 

 I was looking for some good inspiration for a message so I decided to post a question on My Space. The question I posted was, “if you could describe God with one word what would that one word be?” To my surprise I got over 50 responses that revealed that God had a severely bad reputation. Here is a short list of some the comments. God is tough, vengeful, angry, selfish, ignorant, irrelevant, indifferent, incompetent, imperfect, elusive, and chaotic. This list doesn't sound much like the, “fruit of the Spirit.” After a list like that, it is no wonder the world doesn't care for God. This sounds like the character sketch of the Devil. If this is an accurate description of God, I wouldn't want anything to do with Him either. Yet this is the God religion is giving.

It seems what the world needs today is an accurate, detailed description of who God is. The world and the church have accepted lies about who God really is. Our false images of God usually come from one of these three things: misunderstanding the Old Testament, hearing angry legalistic preachers, and experiencing terrible circumstances. When we have all three of these influences in our lives, we have a greater possibly of creating a false image of God.
In Exodus chapter 23, the Bible gives an account of people creating an image to worship. It seems kind of ignorant and barbaric to create a calf out of gold and fall down and worship it. Yet, we have created a modern day image of God that is far worse then a gold calf. Our image is created by our fears, disappointment, misunderstanding, and pain with just a dash of religiosity. Unfortunately, images like that are tough to break. This is how we have come to believe in a God, who is opposite from the fruit of the Spirit. Someone famous once said “that God created man in His image, and then man returned the favor.” Often we create a God that is just like us. If that is the case, then no wonder God seems tough, vengeful, angry, selfish, ignorant, irrelevant, indifferent, incompetent, imperfect, elusive, and chaotic. 

The Bible reveals God as being flexible, forgiving, patient, loving, filled with wisdom, relevant, enthusiastic, competent, perfect, relational, and peaceful. Yet, this is not the God, the world or church for that matter, is experiencing. Now it seems that God is not very popular among the world, He’s definitely not someone you want to invite over for dinner. Within the heart of man is a hatred for God and maybe rightly so; I also hate the god they describe. There’s a good place for a god like that, it’s called Hell. 

It is very possible that there has been an imposter masquerading as God. He is impatient, he’s proud, he demands his own way and keeps records of every wrong. I believe many Christian’s would be surprised to find out they have been serving Satan all long. He is critical, fault finding, and demands perfection. He loves to see people struggle to please him. He is a manipulator that does everything for his own benefit. He is quick to judge and abandon, and forsake you if you don’t measure up.

1 Timothy Chapter 2 Nick Blog Daily Bible Study Woman Will Be Saved Through Childbearing?

by madgeniusbiz | on May 2, 2013





 





 

1 Timothy Chapter  Daily Simple Bible Study Woman saved through Childbearing?

 

Watch Apostle Paul smoking weed VIDEO Here...

If you are new here you will quickly learn that this blog is not for the in-depth bible studier. I do not get into the Greek or Hebrew this or that. On a rare occasion I will but typically this is a place for a Quick Touch or Glance at Scripture.

I will ask thought provoking questions and maybe bring up very controversial ideas. I love to ask questions and I'm always learning so your comments and ideas are needed.

Was Apostle Paul Smoking Weed or Tripping, or What?

Ok yesterday I said Apostle Paul was suicidal... today i'm reading my 10 chapters in the New Testament and I come across 1 Timothy Chapter 2 and now i'm asking if Apostle Paul was smoking weed while he wrote this? Here what do you think?

1 Timothy Chapter 2 verses 8-15

This is straight from Youversion.com it's probably the easiest and best online bible for simple study. They also have a great App for your phone.

8Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.

9I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes,

10but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.

11A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.

12I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man she must be quiet.

13For Adam was formed first, then Eve.

14And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.

15But women will be saved through childbearing-if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

There is just sooooo much here where to start?

Lets do it little by little...

9I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes,

10but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.

Ok so this one is not such a big deal right? Well it has been used in a variety of ways. There are so many churches that use this verse to "NOT ALLOW" any of the following for woman...

    • Pants
    • Makeup
    • Short Hair
    • Earrings
    • Necklaces
    • Bracelets
    • Open toed shoes
    • Short skirts that do not pass the knees
    • Shorts
    • Uncover head
    • Uncovered Face
    • Hairstyles

Nickb log bible study 1 timothy chapter 2This is just a few that I thought up off the top of my head.

See what happens when you say something like Apostle Paul does here is it's not specific, and it's left to interpretation.

Oh boy this is where it gets so ugly between Christians at times.

We start comparing and saying well I cover my whole face and body you only cover your head and body. Thus I am more holy Than you!

Ok so here I can totally understand the heart behind what he was saying to that church. My thoughts or questions would be how is this applicable to different churches, different cultures, different times...?

1 Timothy Chapter 2 Woman must be silent?!!!!!!!! Paul... Really?

11A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.

12I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man, she must be quiet

Nick blog bible study 1 timothy Chapter 2Ok Mr. Paul this is where some people might think you are maybe on something lol

You want woman to do what?!!!!!!!!! Be quiet? LOL Have you met a woman before?  :)

Ladies I am joking :)  and i'm kinda serious too lol. I know many many woman who if ANYONE said that to them, I don't care if it were JESUS himself lol He would have heard how NOT QUIET a woman can be!!!!!!

Paul keeps digging a hole lol Woman Saved Through Childbearing?

Ok now for the one that got me really scratching my head...

13For Adam was formed first, then Eve.

14And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.

15But women will be saved through childbearing-if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

nick blog bible study 1 timothy chapter 2Now most people I know say that Apostle Paul is saying these things about dress and jewelry and woman being quiet because of that days culture type of thing...

Here it looks like he states the "Why" as Eve being the one who was deceived?

 

This whole section of scripture is one of the parts of scripture, that we as Christians agree least about! Like I mentioned above with the dress code as it were.

You will see a huge variation of what is acceptable in churches across America. The application of woman being quiet is pretty much just cast aside in a lot of churches.

Here I hardly Ever hear anyone hit on the whole Woman will be saved through childbearing idea. What could he possible been talking about? Why is he pointing back to Genesis to explain?

Perhaps Paul is lost in Translation?

I'm stumped here on this one! All I can say is that to me Apostle Paul is sharing ideas to help this "Church" run smoother and some good ideas for them to follow. Kinda sharing his opinion? And then the reference to Eve and Childbearing being how woman are saved...

I totally think he is at the end there pointing back that through Eve and her bearing children that the World was saved?

I know different translations are different and the original language things are put together differently. This is one of those passages that I would suggest reading from as many Translations as possible :)

Thinking about 1 Timothy Chapter 2 [Praying] God what is Paul talking about here? Or better what does he mean by what he is saying? How do we use these verses for the edification of your people?

Please always  leave a quick comment...

Let me know your favorite verse of the day or go ahead and leave a huge dissertation on your own insights in the chapters of the day. We can all learn from each other and have great discussions in the comments.

The comments are also an excellent place to ask questions and I will answer them as best I can personally! What do you think about the all this woman stuff? What do you think about this chapter, what do you draw out of it?  Comment below...

Expert Online Dating Advise for Women and Men - Mentality Numbers Game

by madgeniusbiz | on April 21, 2013





The Mad Genius Expert Advise on the Mentality Numbers Game

 

Watch Mad Genius VIDEO here...

It's a Numbers Game Having the right  Mentality

I have met over 60 woman in about 10 months easy lol. I can help you meet girls or guys but what I can't help you do is find the "ONE". That is just a Numbers game. You may meet the ONE the first date, or you may never meet them :( . I told you I will always keep it real here. So I can't help you meet the ONE but what I can do is teach you and help you increase your chance and thus speed up the time frame of meeting them!

expert online dating advise

60+ Girls met ZERO girlfriends in a YEAR

Ok so I was naïve when I first started online dating. I thought I would met the "ONE" like the first month, maybe 6 months but for sure First Year?!!!! I was wayyyy wrong! I met all these girls and liked a lot of them but just wasn't the ONE... I had to really sit down and think and re-evaluate that situation lol!

Then I had one of those moments where it came to me and I got it! It's a numbers game! With variables and everything! So depending on say how picky or specific you are will decrease your chance of finding someone and increase the time it may take. Which is what it is. If I wanted a girlfriend I could have dated at least 40 of those girls were interested in me. There was 1 girl that I really really liked lol but she wasn't interested!

High School Love or College is easy to Connect

Ok it was still bugging me that I hadn't connected with someone though. Then I realized in High School or College you have typically like 1,000+ people to "pick" from. NUMBERS GAME remember? So that totally started to make sense to me. Plus in school you are all hanging around people that are very similar and in similar places in your lives... So that made me feel better lol.

Point is you may have to meet a lot of people like 100′s to finally meet the one you want to date. I honestly think i'm on the picky side of the scale so it may be sooner than that! My point or tip though is to just get in that mentality of "This might take awhile" or "It's not me it's just a numbers game". This i'm telling you is very important!

Too many people give up or get out of the game or settle...

expert online dating advise

Have you ever felt like just giving up lol? Laying down in the rain like this girl and curling up and calling it quits? Well having the right mentality about online dating will help! It will help a lot if you know that it really might be years till you meet someone! I will be writing more blogs on how to have fun and enjoy yourself in the meantime so it's not all horrible :)
