This testimony is pointing to another incidence or form of how sometimes we can be twisting the Truth my Brother’s and Sisters in Christ Jesus!
Religious at times means or connotes different things to different people! I think it’s good if we try to explain what is being said here by this Sister Jenny as to what she espouses. As I believe, that we are to be following Jesus, and by truly doing so we will be doing the Father’s will being a child of God and an instrument to serve His purposes and glory! I can’t be sure about her dream, but, I do know that if we are living as upright and in accordance with God’s Holy Word and thereby following His will we can rest assured that He knows we love Him! Truth be known, for some people they could just dive into a Bible by themselves or with a group and think they are automatically saved which may or may not be the case; only God can judge all things and will; so we need not fret about these things we have no power over nor the ability to fully understand and know God’s purposes as they are continually unfolding in our lives and throughout the world, all of which goes into who is going to be saved; when they each on sitting in the judgment seat before God and Jesus!
So I am drawn immediately to this Holy Scripture that signifies quite clearly what Jesus did and is telling us to keep in mind daily!
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
That is really to me the bottom-line of what it all comes down to at the end of the day; because as mentioned in the video message until a person’s last dying breath we can’t know what God the Father and Jesus know about each and every soul.
Saint Dismas a scoundrel of a man and bad dude before he met Jesus Christ who was nailed to the cross next to his; he Dismas to the right side of Jesus saw all that transpired that day his final day, when his heart opened up like never before watching this man who said He is the Son of the Father in the heavenly eternal kingdom, saying things like, “Forgive them Father for they know not what they do!” Dismas was so rapt in awe he asked this dying man, the Savior, to “just remember me when you join your Father in Your kingdom.” He then in that moment being completely honest and humble having admitted he deserved every bit of what he was getting tied to a cross being crucified for all of his iniquities and sins, having wasted his life being a scoundrel. But, surely Jesus as Dismas correctly said, you deserve none of what they have done to you, you have to be who you say you are, just by how you are forgiving these same people doing this to you, you have shown not even one complaint or modicum of anger or hatred; “you are praying for them” instead! Can we really imagine that powerful scene! Dismas then asked Jesus in all humility and heart felt compassion not thinking in the slightest that he deserved even this; “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise” (verses 42-43).
By the grace of God and the power of Jesus Christ and His gift to us from the cross as with Dismas who had sins that would surely condemn him to hell; as he repented his sins, there and then, they were washed away; and his death was his entrance into Paradise. Amen.
What about all of those years after the Crucifixion of Christ when there were no Bibles and how is a person to have a personal relationship with Jesus in that scenario, Impossible? In the video Sister Jenny mentioned how she was a holy-Rollie or religious nut, but came to realize that she really needed to know Jesus personally, and that her relationship was not complete, which is as I see it walking with Jesus daily allowing Him to lead us on our paths; which she may or may not have prior to having this insight, and we should know that these things are for God to judge. But, a person being very devoted to the daily practice of their faith may be different for some people, in that some spend hours praying while others think a few genuine moments of prayer is enough as long as the heart is where it should be, which is in the hands and loving care of Jesus; turning one’s life and soul over to Him our Savior!
I’d like to add something saying flat out; I would love to see millions of faithful like Saint Mother Teresa was by her living example of faith and humility over what I sometimes see in some so called very faithful believers, who seem to be more business or self-styled or self-proclaimed believers, perhaps too much lip service without the follow through, and that can get very dangerous for any such person or anyone directly involved with such acclaimed believers. Who may very well be getting into the territory of being a false teacher or a distractor from Truth, God’s Truth; and who in such case has a manufactured or concocted self-Truth; a delusion.
Jenny went on to say this, “What a real and true Christian is–someone who follows and obeys Jesus Christ, living the life, understanding He is without limit in deed, in action, in self, and has a personal relationship with Him.”
That is sounding appropriate and good but we have to be absolutely sure we are listening to Jesus through the Holy Spirit and not our own inner voice or even demons. Jenny herself admitted she had for many years thought she had it pegged, and was fine. Jenny clarified further by saying how she missed the boat by this excerpt, “Relationship was the part I had completely skipped, being full of rules that come with religion. Jesus never called us to religion, but rather, a relationship with Him (Revelation 3:20; Matthew 11:28)”
I can say this perhaps best by pointing to an extreme example of running off the rails, but, in all outward appearances seeming to be doing well enough, and I want to make it clear what I’m trying to convey here only to illustrate how many people can run off course or run amuck and be literally heading to hell; as Jenny herself said she may have been previously doing in her faith.
I point out the example of Jim Jones having started out this way and how he went on to build his People’s Temple, and then proceeded to find followers which ultimately followed him to South America and death! When they were all instructed as he said by Jesus to drink the Kool-Aid laced with poison and 909 souls were sent to potentially hell, of course 1/3 were children, so I’m quite sure they are in heaven without any great uncertainty in my mind, as well many others who were easily led due to mental illness or some other pressures in their lives that were so overwhelming they thought it best to follow the leader, in this case a madman; but, only God can judge it all. So those that were quite capable of having their wits about them may have lost it all because they weren’t following “Jesus” and didn’t even know Him, as Jenny said was the fear she was awakened to by her dream. Saint John Paul II is a Saint for a reason that I admire and love greatly and as we know he came through the Roman Catholic Church; but again I’m overwhelmingly confident he is a Saint in heaven; because nobody can change “God’s Truth.” We do know all these things; if we are truly faithful by living “God’s Truth” and that is our focus we pray!
Jenny did say this, how Jesus, “Saw through the eyes of the sinners.” I would like to say I hope it’s what I believe, that Jesus wasn’t seeing that way, but He was and is able to know all sinners as well as faithful totally! Because he is God and holy knowing all things but doesn’t have to see through anyone’s eyes, especially a sinner; I believe He just knows us all by our hearts! Amen.
I want to add she was not a Pharisee unless she was living by the Old Testament, but if we live and speak of Jesus through the New Testament, in accordance with His New and Everlasting Covenant then we are following Him, which is “the way the truth and the life.” Amen.
I want to share these pertinent Scriptures and a bit more of my own perspective here.
“17Now I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who create divisions and obstacles that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Turn away from them. 18For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. 19Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I rejoice over you. But I want you to be wise about what is good and innocent about what is evil.” Romans 16:18-19
“You may say that it is none of your business, but God knows and judges your motives. He keeps watch on you; he knows. And he will reward you according to what you do.” Proverbs 24:12
I don’t like to even consider that I judge anyone because I sure deserve a lot of hurt for my own sins! But, though people will say or scoff at my approach at times, saying we should not judge I say back, that yes we can Discern and Evaluate by all we learned, along with letting Jesus lead the way first and foremost, stacked up against what we face each day; so that we can in a sense judge if we should be involved in a given situation or this or that, and even whether to bother with some person or not!
I had people fake me out many times and then being a kind heart not always capable but wanting to forgive as the Lord did, so trying to go beyond our inherent or build in weak or lacking fallen capacity, I think OK, I forgive, but then I get involved again; and then the zinger comes again! Not being foolish is something God demands of us reminding us to remain sober and be vigilant that is what He wants us to do, to learn and take to heart what lesson came so hard, so that, we won’t do it again!
Romans 8 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus”
Romans 8:28: “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
John 14:26 (KJV) – “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” God has a “gift” for all of us. The “gift of the Holy Ghost.” The Spirit baptism is the “promise of the Father.”
John 14:26 “26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
God bless you!
Brother in Christ Jesus,

My whole life changed at the age of 17 when I was given the shock of a lifetime! A blunt revelation transformed my walk with Godforever. In return, I learned the contrast between religion and relationship.
TRAILING BEHIND MY BIG sister, Leslie, I made my way to the altar at the age of eight to give my heart to Jesus. And for years that became my pride. I’d go around boasting, “I’ve been saved since I was eight!” That sort of became my trophy for a long time. Instead of giving glory to Jesus Christ for His painful sacrifice on the cross for my salvation, I’d give it to myself for becoming born again at such a young age.
When I was around 17 years old, I was given a dream that shook me to the core. I dreamed I was joyriding in a car…

It might interest you to know that Sen. Dianne Feinstein was a supporter of Rev. Jim Jones.

You don’t say! Who knew, I actually didn’t but now that you mention it I’m not a bit surprised with that swamp creature being tied in! How do there artifacts live with themselves or look in a mirror and not keel over with disgust! Oh right, no conscience to be found anywhere in that walking toxic waste dump! What really irks me is how people like her are allowed to ferment in our highest offices in the land and just decay our government along with them for so damn long like a jungle rot! The most corrupt people, but above the law; but not God’s!

Yes, and her ties to the Chinese government, too. Women like Feinstein and Pelosi go into politics to help their husbands – not the American people. And then, they pretend to be so godly and pure.

So True! You see it so well Dawn! I have my not sugar coated thing and then I have many more degrees harder that I can go to where it’s bare knuckles or down to the skin and bones; it’s just in my passionate blood I suppose! But the door is kinda propped open here so I’ll push it all the way jumping in and say those broads are damned witches!
Now I have to put that in perspective, I see the Virgin Mary the Madonna as a beyond Saintly woman and at the head of the heavenly family our Holy Mother of God that God Himself separated from all women making her blessed and sanctified as holy in order to have the holiness of God and Jesus in her anything less would no work; as like we know God said to Moses you stand on hallowed ground here before me! Then correlate that concept of the Blessed Mother into our earthly human terms of the living in the flesh, I appreciate any good genuine woman and see them all as special and blessed to be the ones who are capable of actually carrying and joining as one in a sense, fully connected to another human life in their wombs to birth; and that is a great honor and miracle to me!
So they are on a pedestal and should be cherished by good men who give them all respect and complete love while being a man in the ready to always protect them! If that is old fashioned and out of line with the crazy nuthouse world today then all I can say is, tough shit! I’m not changing and will be this way to my last breath! But the caveat to this is that not enough women today are deserving of this honor and respect mainly because they trash themselves and become undignified harlots promoting Satan’s agenda and living for the Ways of the World or as they say serving he beast! While many of the men that are not men but only trolls and worse are pimping the women of today playing the same game of serving that beast and materialistic world of lust, power, greed and debauchery!
I’m becoming a relic I think at times and figure if it gets much worse maybe God will take me before that point which would be giving me a huge break; but I of course realize that being in God’s hands if there is reason for Him to want me here hopefully helping others to serve His will, then I won’t complain at all and will just do it!!
I can add to all of this that I’m forever hopeful though, because we do know how it all ends ultimately and all the good and light of Truth, God’s Truth will rise above everything that sinks to the depths to which it all belongs! Maybe I’m saying like the simple fact, that how the farmers say; the cream rises to the top!
Hope you’re having a great day!
Thank you again!
God bless you and yours!

Brother Lawrence, Your post would make a great sermon-homily, as is frequently the case.
The prohibition is to judge not lest you be judged likewise, but has been thrown around as “judge not”.
What is known as the Wesleyan Quadrilateral is good to remember, I think. It “bases its teaching on four sources as the basis of theological and doctrinal development. These four sources are chiefly scripture, along with tradition, reason, and Christian experience.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wesleyan_Quadrilateral
Too many have cut themselves loose from tradition and reason, which is where there is a lot for non-Catholics to learn from Roman Catholicism. When I first started reading some Wesley, I was absolutely shocked at how it’s the opposite of what most United Methodists practiced. His life was centered on helping the poor and even in his 80s he went from door to door in the sleet to collect money to help the poor in an age before the welfare state existed. He thought that Christians should all live with discipline and in simplicity (of the sort which characterizes life in monasteries).
I’m often reminded of someone who said “Don’t be so open minded that your brain falls out.” This is all the more memorable because his own brain had fallen out in the interest of church growth. I certainly didn’t know that in South America they sacrificed guinea pigs, llama fetuses and even human children to Pachamama. They are still sacrificing guinea pigs and llama fetuses which raises the question of if they still do the child sacrifices too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pachamama
King James Version
7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
Jim Jones was connected to a lot more people than Feinstein. It is shocking:

“Instead of passing legislation to allow more low-income students to go to medical school, they arranged to send Americans to Cuba. Clearly this was to indoctrinate them as Communists”
Destroy from within my good Christian Brother!
Maxine the Crazy Machine that I named her a while ago, who has advocated anarchy and violence in America; definitely fomented same during the Chauvin verdict phase of his trial in person telling the radial left citizens in Minnesota to get in their faces (jurors) and anyone associated with the trial on the streets and do what you have to do making them get the message of what the verdict must be; nothing less than guilty of murder! That is jury tampering, intimidation and probably falls into the RICO Statutes of Organized Crime and or Espionage because of their foreign enemy ties, as well as violating Constitutional rights of the jurors and all Americans by their using fear and threat of bodily harm while they actively are pushing an enemy of the people agenda!
Just like they did in the original Communist uprising throughout the early part of the 20th century in Russia with Lenin and then Marx running a hostile takeover of the population murdering millions; and of course what Chairman Mao called for in China subsequently during the so called Cultural Revolution or aka Commie takeover! At the very least it’s like a quiet hidden on the back burner mutiny here! These are enemies within and Communists to boot who are hell-bent! And the strange thing is they operate unhindered under everyone’s noses, the CIA, FBI, DOD, DHS and the rest of the Congressional leadership! Look at the tools like commie pinko radical nut case AOC who is as useful as a box full of rocks in America and the equally untalented Squad, they keep them around with all the lies and outright anti-Semitic rhetoric they propagated to boot! Like how AOC lied completely about her life being in danger during the January 6th rally saying she had to hide fearing for her life, when she wasn’t even near the activity at the time! Oh really AOC how did all the citizens in many Blue States feel do you think, if that’s not asking too much of you, to strain your brain; how about how they felt during the actual mayhem and anarchy with riots, burning building and shootings or citizens being raped and murdered seem to you, during the Summer of 2020; was that a threatening situation for all those innocent citizens who really had something to be hiding from in their homes, that you don’t have one Iota of care for in your entire twisted demented mind!
The US Congress is so full of criminal activity it’s no wonder they haven’t just declared Martial Law and how like your latest posting points out “Bennie Thompson, Supported Radical Insurrectionists Involved in Death of a Police Officer;” and these are American Citizens in elected high office to boot? I thought once upon a time that even any newcomers had to pass a basic litmus test before the swearing an oath of allegiance to uphold the US Constitution and thereby accept this Republic as their own Nation before they are welcomed to be a citizen or allowed citizenship; let alone be in a high public office! But these operators are outwardly showing they have no allegiance or even give a damn about America, its Constitution or Citizens unless they are of the Communist minded variety!
But of course what should we expect while unvetted foreigners are allowed now to walk right into the country at the Southern Border some of them known gang or cartel members and some totally unknowns from hostile regions of the world who are anti-American! Looks to me that this has all been allowed to go way too far and when “heads should have rolled” as the saying goes, all they did was said, “welcome to the insiders club!” Where are the Real Patriots of America in our Congress? Do any of them even care enough or really work for the People?
Thank you Brother, for this factually abundant and forthright comment and links! I’m still going over them and very helpful as well as enlightening!
