Jesus died on the cross by Pastor Melissa Scott

Filed under: Pastor Melissa Scott — admin @ 5:29 am

Melissa Scott tells us that the verse somehow seems an intrusion here, because in Romans 3:21 through 31 is not talking about sin but about the way of salvation.”

Je ne sais pas. Don’t ask me. I’m just reading from what he says.

“I think differently now, however” – Thanks because that’s wonderful because that’s what he’s dealing with – “and reason I think differently is that now I understand the connection between this verse and grace.”

Now let me add something before I read on. Grace is unmerited favor. We did nothing to deserve it. We did nothing to earn it. So the minute somebody says ‘I’m rolling my burdens on Him’ and everything, all that there is bought and paid for. That sphere of grace that covers me also covers those emotions that well up, because it’s so hard to believe. In fact I’m just – I’m going to wait but let me come back to this. I need to ask a question: how many of you – and this is a no-brainer, because it’s not a religious question. It doesn’t have to interfere with your spiritual stimuli right now. How many of you whether you agree or disagree with people that are out in Iraq or wherever they be in the world, how many of you agree – I want to see hands – that they are protecting you and your country? Show me your hands. Okay. You have no doubt about that.  No doubt. Now how many of you fought in a war. You fought in a war. Show me hands. There’s – yeah. You’d do right to applaud.

You went, you might have enlisted, you might have been drafted; you went to protect the country. You protected me. Personalize it for wherever you are. You were being put on the front lines, in danger. There are people that have died. Lost limbs. And there are no ‘buts’ attached. You did it with no ‘buts’ attached. Right? Why then would I say ‘Well you went and you fought for the country, but…’? Now take that same analogy. Jesus died on the cross, ‘but…’ See how ridiculous that is?

The Communion by Pastor Melissa Scott

Filed under: Pastor Melissa Scott — admin @ 8:17 am

My intention was to gather in the Chapel with the people and film a Communion that we put up on the air for all new people who have never partaken explaining it like milk. And man there was enough people sitting in the Chapel I could pick up the vibrations it was like ‘Mrs. Scott’ – I felt like kids sitting there like you know a child will look at a mother and say ‘come on Mom’ it’s like ‘this is milk, come on.’ I know you. And the ones that are sitting here who were sitting in front of me trust me. I pick up those vibrations. The staff people will tell you if there’s something going wrong my radar picks it up. And I thought ‘you know I understand where they’re coming from’ but I have a dilemma. After we were done I concluded something.

The reason why I want to take the Communion to put up on the air to bring to new people – is  there is so much confusion. If I don’t teach people – forget about a baby milk Communion – if I don’t teach people what’s underneath that – those elements, the bread and the wine – if I don’t teach those basic, fundamental principles I am just as guilty as the next person who’s not teaching it correctly, because we are to discern what we’re doing when we partake. We’re not to focus on ourselves. We’re to discern the elements. And I thought ‘Okay.’ We did this Communion and I picked up some interesting vibes as I told you.

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that it also dawned on me. I need to – we need to go back to the basics. Some of you who have been so well taught and new people who haven’t been taught at all here, not to insult, lest I would insult anybody, I’m sure people have read the Bible.

The Word by Pastor Melisssa Scott

Filed under: Pastor Melissa Scott — admin @ 8:38 am

And at some point you have to decide what’s worth-ship you’ve been taught – the contraction of the value – worth-ship: what you have received, what it’s worth to you. And not because I’m crying some tears in the screen and I’m telling you we have to feed starving children in some foreign country. Maybe we do that behind the scenes. It’s none of your business. You give for the worth of the teaching. You give because you love God and God loves a hilarious giver. Period.

Now, Turn to Mathew 13:33. We’re going to go back to Revelation. I want to show you this very quickly. “Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven.” Now I need to say this. I know a lot people are going to say ‘Whoa, don’t even go there.’ This forth little section of a whole series woven in here is like the fourth church. The fourth church: Thyatira. Read this “The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.”

Pastor  Melissa Scott tells us that the meal being represented as Jesus, Bread of Life, Manna from Heaven, the Logos, the Word. Leaven is always – I don’t care where you look – ninety-nine per cent of the time it’s going to be evil or corruption. A lot of people hate this because it’s right there and what does it mean for me and what does it mean for you? It means that this woman, again another type of the church, she took the Word and she mixed in corruption until the whole thing was corrupt.

Huh? Now if you have a problem with me saying “the kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven” then you’ll have a problem with verse 24 when it says “The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man.” Same thing. We’re not talking about specifics. I know some people will say ‘Well it has to mean something else.’ It means exactly what it says. So when we take the type of corruption that is being put into the church in this time, in these Dark Ages. Go back with me now to Revelation.

The second church by Pastor Melissa Scott

Filed under: Pastor Melissa Scott — admin @ 3:26 am

“And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations; And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”

Wow! Could this be the same Jesus in times past? Absolutely. God has a right to get ticked off if He wants at what He sees. Let that sink in for a millisecond. Every letter has more or less the same formula. And I hate to use that word, but it has the same formula. We’ve got ‘To the church’ ‘From Jesus’ and a description of Himself. And what I love about this: this could be a message in a message. To each church, He comes to the people right where they’re at. Guess what? That hasn’t changed. Jesus comes to us exactly where we are. We don’t have to reach up to Heaven to bring Him down nor bend down to bring Him up. He comes to us exactly where we are.

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that these churches no different; the first church He’s in the midst with the seven stars, seven candlesticks in the midst of the churches and He tells them ‘if you don’t change your ways I’m going to take away your church.’ But He came right where they were. The second church He tells them ‘don’t worry, I became dead and I’m alive. To you who are suffering persecution and martyrdom, don’t worry about it. You’re going to be okay. I’m your typo here. I’m your proof that you’re going to overcome and not be hurt of the second death. The third church the sharp sword. Two edges because there’s going to be some cutting and the same words will bring life to some and death to others. This church here; no different; He comes exactly where they are and if you’re reading the passage it has an interesting little introduction. “These things sayeth the Son of God.”

2nd Corinthians by Pastor Melissa Scott

Filed under: Pastor Melissa Scott — admin @ 1:39 am

If you lived in that time and you were a Christian and you wouldn’t reproach Christ, good luck finding a job and making a living and you were considered the bottom of the barrel. This is history, this is not opinion, this is history. You were considered the lowest of the low to be a Christian in those days. If you made your living in the city around you had to work in the temples making trinkets for pagan gods.

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that everything was focused on Caesar so if you didn’t want to do that, you would be destitute. And He says “I know your tribulation and your utter destitution but,” alla, “but.” I may not get to these other things, that’s okay. “But,” He says plousius ei. Plousius, we get our word ‘plutocrat,’ plousius ei, and I “You are rich.” But that’s a contradiction, that’s a paradox, of course. He says I know your tribulation and your poverty, your destitution but you’re rich. Holy mackerel! Okay.

Let me tell you 2nd Corinthians 6:10, let me read it to you, don’t go there. I’ll just turn there you don’t go there. 2nd Corinthians, I’ll find it in my book quickly, 6:10 what does it say? It would help if I was reading the right place, “As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.” You read, unfortunately I take the claim out James, but James 2:5 says exactly the same thing, poor but rich. You’re winners people at Smyrna, and this is where we get into a little sticky situation. “And the blasphemy,” you can read that word blaspsemian ek ton legon, “of those saying,” Ioudaious.

Now I’m going to stop here lest anybody misinterpret or misrepresent what I’m going to say. If you’re going to be a Christian, be a Christian. That means and let me give you this equation before I go on, if I were to lift this phrase out that says “And the ones saying they are Jews,” and I prefer the word Jewish but it does read Jew, einai eautous kai ouk eisin alla, they’re not really…Let me pause there because we could put anybody in that to make that fit the bill. Lest anybody think Mrs. Scott is anti-Semitic person.
