Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.KJV – 33
Christians today DENY Jesus by refusing to read or obey Jesus Truths, commands, and admonitions. Given by Jesus, the Apostles, and Evangelists within the only TRUE Words from God to all men worldwide, that are found ONLY in the Protestant Christian Bible NEW Testament.
If you prefer your religious churches views and interpretation of how they understand the New Testament then you are spiritually LOST, NOT Saved, Not Born again. You have Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.KJV – 33
Hi, my name is Missionary Norman Oetker(69years) and this is my wife Selma(68) .
We’re Protestant Christian Missionaries.
I’m the director of the not-for-profit called L.A.M.
L.A.M. means, “The Light Amidst the Hmong.”
It’s a Christian Outreach to Hill-Tribes of Northern Thailand.
Today, we are located here, at our mission home headquarters in Saint Charles Missouri,United States.
We’ve decided to do this in our home office here, our mission offices in Missouri. We’ll have a church service, sort of.
I’ve had over 10,000 views on You-Tube now.
And so, I would like for the audience to really hear us talk. We do a lot of writing. And now, you can look and even download through Google Translate the Hmong Dlawb(war refugees from Laos now in U.S.and their children). And listen to or read, if you know RPA.
Mong (Hmong from Laos) today, of course the old and young Mong/Hmong today, are not good at R.P.A.(Romanized Popular Alphabet) they are Americanized.
Americanized in the wrong way.
We will talk about them in another session.
Today, we’re going to be talking about the “Love of God.”
A lot of people misunderstand that.
And have their values, or what they think love is, and how to treat someone else.
They insert how they interpret to “Love God.”
We want you to know, that these videos being done are in home.
We really have not practiced these, this is just as you see, you’re going to get it.
And, after these couple videos, we will be going live on YouTube.
And at a live time, we will send our friends, when you friend me, a Link.
A link for you to know when we will be on live at YouTube.
You’ll know what time we’re going to be on live on YouTube.
Then, all you have to do is to watch, and of course, you will be able to also communicate with us live as you watch.
Its kind of a neat feature of YouTube.
So there’s a lot of things that we’re involved in, and I just want you to know some of them.
If you go to our home page now at NormanOetker.com, that’s Norman, and the last name is OETKER. Also HmongNews.Org, HowToBecomeAChristianToday.Com.
I have a lot of different internet search tags that you can get to our website.
Norman Oetker, Hmong, U.C.L.E., United Christian Liberty Evangelical, the R.P.A., and the Pahawh.
These are Hmong names that their familiar with, and the gringos or the Americanos, not so much.
I just returned six years from Mexico doing mission work there, and so I have a lot of Mexican friends now.
And, I want them to be able to hear this, and we’ll be typing this script up, so you’ll be able to read this, in Hmong, and Spanish, and Thai, and my special friend Thong Yoi in Thailand, and to my children.
And to everyone we know, to be able to listen to these videos.
And we intend to do these on a weekly basis. These are going to be our legacy in a sense, and we want a lot of people to understand, especially a lot of estranged family members, now to know, just exactly what we’re about.
Selma and I, and especially I, we don’t mix words so much, we simply see things as they really are.
And to tell you the truth, it’s not a good situation, and it’s not been a good situation for a number of centuries within the Protestant Christian world.
The so-called Christians of today, I’m not making this video in a sense to criticize the lukewarm, milk toast excuse for a church that we have today.
And I’m talking about the major Protestant Denominations, the Charismatics, Pentecostals, Trinity Pentescostals that is.
And if you’re not in that group of Protestants and believe only, that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, then you’re really not Born Again, you’re just religionist’s.
But it goes a step further than that, yes, to be a Christian, now what does it mean?
And what does Jesus mean when He wants you to love God?
Selma has some scriptures here, and she’s gonna read, and this video is going to be us talking back and forth about our thoughts about some of these Scriptures.
These are difficult statements that Jesus makes, and there’s no way that you or me, or anyone else can water these statements down, they mean exactly what they say!
And, more than likely, you, that are watching this video, you’ve not been truly Spiritually Born-Again! You might have experienced a lot of
things as a Christian, you might even be baptized in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
You might be the greatest money giver to the church.
You might be involved in all kinds of works, but it doesn’t negate what Jesus says you have to be, to be a Christian.
You’re going to hear these verses again and they simply mean that.
God’s not going to give me or my wife Selma a pass to get into heaven, and He’s not going to give you a pass to get into heaven.
It’s either you are going to do these simple verses or you don’t love Jesus, and it’s real clear, you’re going to have to separate yourself from everything; that doesn’t mean ninety-nine point nine percent, it doesn’t mean just the emotional understanding, yes I want to do it, but in practicality, in actuality in everyday life events you are not doing it; except when you are in church and emotionally torn up about something.
This is a lifelong vocation being a Christian, under the power of God.
When Jesus said you can cry “Abba Father”, that’s for people who have been born again by the Holy Spirit.
We’re talking about people who have been raised in a Pentecostal Church,or a Baptist church, or a Presbyterian; you’re not going to make it.
I don’t care how many times you went to the altar and asked Jesus to come into your heart.
It doesn’t work that way.
There are conditions that Jesus talks about, before you can do any of that.
Many people came to Jesus and said “I want to follow you, Lord”, and they were good, moral, upright people, just like today, but they were not spiritually born again.
And do you know why? Because they are rebels!
You’re listening to this video, you know what I’m talking about.
So we’re going to begin now with some basic things that Christ said about the love of God.
Jesus said “Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.”
He also said, and this is in the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament, [Mat 10:34-39, 42 KJV] 34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes [shall be] they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
And one more Scripture; Jesus said, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
There’s a lot of examples in my own life that I can use.
I’ve been in ministry for forty-some years.
We incorporated our not for profit in 1978 here in the state of Missouri.
There’s been many many times that situations occured, and I didn’t know
exactly which way to go or what to do.
And for you that wonder what my thoughts are about certain subjects, I’m thankful that the Scriptures, the New Testament Scriptures in the Protestant
Christian Bible states that we have an advocate with the Father,
someone on our behalf, so that when we mess up, when we sin, willfully sin, not this phony doctrine that you sin every time you open your mouth or think, or every waking moment.
No, when you willfully sin against Jesus, we have an Advocate that forgives us.
So just from the start, I want everyone to know, if you occasionally sin, you have an Advocate and that’s Jesus.
You ask for forgiveness and God will forgive you.
If someone else is involved you ask for forgiveness from them and then you get up and you move on.
So our video time is going to be with that.
I’ve had to ask the Lord many times for forgiveness.
But Jesus tells me,” Norman you be perfect as my Father in heaven is perfect”, and I look at that and say “Wow”!
But you know, Jesus sees something in me, just like I see it in you in the audience there.
That power of God isn’t just on my life and on my wife’s life. Their are other spiritually born-again Christians that are doing exactly what we’re doing, and that’s being a light to a lost and dying world.
That’s happening now in our midst all around.
And where is it coming from?
The greatest majority of evil done is in the Christian Church today with the luke-warm, milk-toast believers who are spoon-fed anything that they want to hear.
They don’t want to hear,”I have to give everything up,and go serve Jesus.
Those scripture verses are so clear.
Jesus said to that good Jewish man,”you rich man, I want you to do a couple of things. Go,sell your stuff, go, give it to the poor.”
Now mind you,Jesus didn’t say,”rich man go sell what you have and minister to the poor.”
He didn’t say that.
He didn’t say “sell what you have and go live with the poor and help them with a coat program, help them with a food program, help them with all their little needs, help them get a cell phone, help them to get this, help them to get every other government benefit.
No, he didn’t say that. Jesus said, “Go, sell, give it to the poor, and then come follow me.”
Being a Christian isn’t what Christianity is about today.
Today Christanity is about serving the community.
They’ve said these actual words; serving the community, raking leaves, help build a house, help do this, help do that; everything.
But Jesus Great Commission to the born-again Christian is only one thing.
And that is to go and each and make disciples.
That’s all we’re supposed to do.
And you that have been in church a long time know how difficult this is.
You that have just set back in life and haven given up.
You know how embarassing it is for you to talk about Jesus, you might offend someone.
