Jesus is LORD over all Traditions!

01/18/2010

Matthew 12


 

Tradition isn't bad. Tradition is nothing more than Habit at the group level. Habits can be good for you. There is a book called "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" .

Traditions!

  • Creating good habits can be a highly effective tool of your Faith life.
  • Bad Habits can lead you to a life of frustration.

As a group forms a habit it becomes a tradition. Christmas is a tradition. It's not biblical. There is no biblical precedent for celebrating the birth of Christ, nor did that event take place in December. However, as a nation and all western society we have gathered and set aside this day we call Christmas, to focus and remember God's greatest gift to mankind.


 

    So then as I look at Matthew 12 I'm not surprised to see that Jesus is being attacked by the priests. They are concerned about their traditions. But, sad to say, their traditions had made the word of God of no effect. See:


 

Matthew 15


Defilement Comes from Within

 1 Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying, 2 "Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread."
3 He answered and said to them, "Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? 4 For God commanded, saying, 'Honor your father and your mother';[a] and, 'He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.'[b]
5 But you say, 'Whoever says to his father or mother, "Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God"— 6 then he need not honor his father or mother.'[c] Thus you have made the commandment[d] of God of no effect by your tradition. 7 Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:
      

                                                                    

8
' These
people
draw near to Me with their mouth,
      And[e]honor Me with
their
lips,
      But their heart is far from Me.
       9
And in vain they worship Me,
       Teaching
as
doctrines the commandments of men.'"[f]


 

    So we look at this set of passages in Matthew 12 and find the same things going on. Jesus is saying here:

  • Look here fellas, the traditions are fine sometimes, but let's get to the heart of the matter. Were men made for traditions or traditions made for men? You've turned the thing that was meant to bless into a curse.

Why do we have Church on Sunday? Because God said to? No… We have it then because that is the day that our culture has decided to set aside as the day to meet. MORE people are off work, even in today's fast paced, open late society, than on any other day.


 

    There was a tradition of the middle age church to pray to saints. This was a bad tradition for we ought to pray to the Father.

That is one adjustment my family has made this last year.


 

  • We do not pray, typically, to Jesus…
  • WHAT?? How can you say that?!!
  • Hold on a moment there… To be more effective in life and ministry you must examine EVERY tradition and see if it's based solely in the Word or is it someone's idea about the Word?
    • John 16:26-28
    • John 17
    • Matthew 6
      • Jesus tells us that we will ask the Father in His Name.
      • Jesus says to pray like this: Our Father…
      • Jesus says the Father love us
      • Jesus says in John 17 that the Father loves us just as much as He does Jesus.
      • Your Father in Heaven sees the birds…
      • It is not ME but My FATHER who does the work in Me…
        • The Theme of Jesus Life is to introduce us to our Father.
  • The Father is NOT Jesus. They are separate persons but One God! There is a difference. Jesus is not my Father. He is my Friend, Brother, Co-Heir, Lord, Savior, Healer, Deliverer…etc… But His Father is My Father!
  • I've been adopted with the FULL RIGHTS as a SON of God. Jesus paid my adoption fees.
  • The Father LOVES me…


 


 


 

Father,

I lift this message to all who read it, may it be a lightening rod to shine a light on the path of those who have never prayed effective prayers. May they learn to be strategic, effective, and powerful in their prayer life! May this be the catalyst to find other traditions, in prayer and otherwise, that do not line up perfectly with the Word. I know you hear me, as a result I KNOW I have the things I ask for. I Believe, I Receive, I Take it, I Have it, I Thank You For it!


 

In the Name of Jesus The Anointed One, Who's I am, and Whom I serve. BE IT DONE UNTO ME AS YOU HAVE SAID (Translation of: AMEN)!

Research: Erase Hard Drive/ Thumb Drive

2: DegaussingHard drives are nothing more than bottles of data held in place by magnetic glue. By removing the magnetic glue, you can create a breakdown of the underlying bits and bytes and scramble them in a way that's pretty tough to recover from. If the degaussing device used is good enough, you'll destroy all of the bits and bytes at the user level as well as the low-level formatting that makes it function as a drive. (If you're serious about data security, you'll use a powerful degausser.)
Although degaussing might be looked at as a way of simply erasing a drive, it's actually a destructive mechanism, though it's not nearly as fun to watch as a shredder.
Powerful degaussers will also render inoperable a drives servo motors and will damage the spindle motor of the drive. It truly is a paperweight when you're done.
A really good degausser is expensive, but it doesn't cost as much as a really good shredder, and it might be enough for your needs. Also, it…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see
http://www.darrellwolfe.com/2018/06/flavia-antoinette-wolfe-and-baby-wolfe.html?m=1

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

A Memorial Message of Hope

My wife, Flavia Antoinette Wolfe, passed into Glory on 06/25/2018. This is the message/word God gave me.Dealing with Tragedy
When tragedy strikes, we often compelled to ask questions and express doubts:
• Why?
• What if… a thousand what-ifs…
• If only…
• I should have/shouldn't have
• Can God really be good?
• Can the Bible really be true?

The answer to why is simple, hard, and totally unsatisfying: This World Is Broken. 

Sin entered the world, and through sin, death. BUT, God. So many powerful stories have a "but God" moment. Jesus came, he conquered death, and through him, our sorrow is lessened, and a drop of joy lies underneath.

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 New King James Version (NKJV)

You WILL have tribulation. That's just as much a promise as anything else in the bible. Trouble is here on this planet for all of us because of…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?
