Jesus Christ is Perfect Theology, with Ryan Kibbe

What do we mean when we say, Jesus Christ is Perfect Theology?

Jesus Christ as Perfect Theology means that we can’t come to know what God is truly like without Jesus. That God can only be known, and the whole of Scripture can only be interpreted, through Jesus alone. Jesus becomes the lens through which we view ALL of Scripture. (Download this at: www.sozotalkradio.com)

Whereas Job and ALL the Old covenant prophets are posing the question:

“God, who are You?”

Jesus is the answer:

I AM what God is like.”

God-is-like-Jesus

God is Like Jesus

The book of Hebrews begins with this:

“The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God.” Hebrews 1

Jesus said:

“If you’ve seen me you’ve seen the Father.” (John 14 NLT)

Jesus never said anything that the Father wasn’t giving him to say. Everything Jesus was given to say was carefully chosen by the Father to lead people into eternal life which Jesus defines for us as restored relationship! Also, Jesus never did anything on his own. He always partnered with what the Father was already doing. The Father was expressing “Himself” perfectly through Jesus Christ leading his lost children back home.

First of all, both Ryan and I begin in this talk by relating our understanding of God growing up in the church. He believed God would only love him if he remained faithful. Ryan talks about how so many of us partner with a cycle of shame and a performance mentality that we allow to define our relationship with God. We make it about us and not about the marvelous beauty and wonder of who God is and enjoying fellowship with Mr. Joy Himself.

Jesus Christ is Perfect Theology in You

A couple of Scriptures that Ryan Kibbe shared in this interview were:

“…as He is, so also are we in this world.” – 1 John 4:17

And:

“Christ in you the hope of glory” – Colossians 1:27 NASB

Ryan emphasized how Christ didn’t die for a doctrinal statement but to live in you and me to re-present the Father to an orphan minded world of what the Father is truly like.

I love that! When Ryan said that we re-present the Father to an orphan minded world I couldn’t help but think of the interview I just did with Mel Wild! We talked in that episode about how the Father’s embrace is healing the orphan minded in both the church and the world. As one poet once said, “Jesus wants to save Christians too.”

Listen to what John writes in the beginning of his Gospel:

“No one has ever yet seen God. The only begotten God, the One being in the bosom of the Father, He has made Him known.” John 1:18 Berean Literal Bible

It seems that all the other prophets prior to Jesus have only have ever caught the faintest whispers of what God was truly like until Jesus revealed him. If we want to know what God is like, we look to Jesus.

All true prophets since Christ’s coming have Christ living in them. They can truly know the Good Shepherd and “see God” which is something Jesus said would be true for the pure in heart (or fully surrendered).

We, as Christ followers, are now displaying what God is like. Jesus in us is still putting God on display to the world saying through us, “this is what God is like.”

The apostle Paul writes in one of his letters to the Corinthians about beholding the glory of God and reflecting him to this orphan hearted world like Ryan mentions in this talk.

“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.” 2 Corinthians 3:18

(This is where our band name Reflect Worship comes from! Check out our music here: www.reflectworship.com)

And again:

For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6

What About all our Carefully Crafted Doctrinal Statements of Theology?

While it may seem like a cop-out to simply say, “Jesus Christ is Perfect Theology”, I actually see this perspective as the most brilliant way to live in unity and harmony with other believers. Personally, I  refuse to even play the game of defining theology as hammering out a doctrinal statement anymore.

Theology is a Person.

If we are in relationship with Truth Himself (Yeshua, aka Jesus) then we know that all errors in our understanding of this Perfect Theology will be straightened out in time as we grow in relationship.

Relationship has always been the point!

As I mentioned before, Jesus defines Eternal Life as Relationship! If you don’t have relationship by actually coming to Jesus then you do not have eternal life.

It isn’t our perfect understanding of Theology that saves any of us, but Perfect Theology Himself who saves us. After all, Jesus own name spells out “I AM Salvation”.

Come Lord Jesus, Official Music Video Release!

Catherine and I are so excited to share with you our music video of our song Come Lord Jesus!

This song is available here: https://reflect.bandcamp.com/album/reflect-love-2

Story Behind Come Lord Jesus:

The inspiration behind Come Lord Jesus came as I was reading a book by C.S. Lewis called the “Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe” to my five-year old daughter. C.S. Lewis wrote this book as an allegory for the Gospel. There is a white witch who had kept Narnia under her spell for a hundred long years. It was always winter and never Christmas. Everyone suffered under her rule and everyone who opposed her was turned to stone.

aslan-narnia-white-witch

Then Aslan returns to Narnia. Aslan is the Creator of Narnia and the Christ figure in this book. As soon as he sets foot in Narnia, the white witch loses her power. Everything thaws and Spring comes in a single day! The birds are singing, trees and flowers are blooming… It is beautiful!

As I read that to my daughter, a thrill came to my heart. I thought about the day when Jesus will come back to this world he created. The devil will lose his power and my prayer is that all our hearts, which the devil has kept frozen, untrusting, and suspicious of the true nature of Jesus, will thaw at his return!

This is also what happens to anyone who comes to the Lord. An eternal Spring comes into their heart. All your life previous to knowing Christ was the longest, hardest, most brutal winter you’ll ever know and then you meet Jesus! Spring has come at long last!

The first century church had an Aramaic word they used to greet each other:

Maranatha

This word means, “Our Lord is coming” or “Come Oh Lord”.

Jesus is returning soon! It is closer now than it ever has been!

Lyrics:

Come Lord Jesus

The winters passing on and spring has
Come, come, come Lord Jesus
Our hearts are thawing ever drawing
Near to you Lord Jesus

Fill our hearts with love and beauty
Fill our lives now, Holy Spirit

The trees are reaching for Yeshua,
Come, come, come Lord Jesus
The birds are singing Hallelujah,
Come, come, come Lord Jesus

Fill our hearts with love and beauty
Fill our lives now Holy Spirit
Fill our hearts with love and beauty
Fill our lives now, Holy Spirit

Spring rain is falling down,
Spring rain is washing out,

All the filth, all the things we could do without
All the pain all the stains you are cleansing out
All the filth, all the things we could do without
All the shame all the stains you are cleansing out…

(Instrumental)

Come Lord Jesus, Come Lord Jesus
Come Lord Jesus, Come Lord Jesus

The winters passing on and spring has
Come, come, come Lord Jesus
Our hearts are thawing ever drawing
Near to you Lord Jesus

Come, come, come Lord Jesus
Come, come, come Lord Jesus

A few extra details about this song:

This Official music video was released at exactly 11:15 AM CST on the Spring Equinox 2018 on Tuesday, March 20th.

I wrote the music for the song after a concert one day at a nursing home. It was first recorded on a smart phone on the first day of Spring as I played it for Daniel Betters, a man of God who was on his way to be with Jesus. He passed on into the next life that day and I later played this very song at his funeral. They had named the memorial service a “celebration of life” and it most certainly was! I was delighted to hear all the amazing stories of this man of his faith and love for Jesus. I was so excited and glad to have been there to hear of his walk to remember!

This song appears on our album Reflect Love.

reflect love album

Jesus would tell each one of us, “Love the person you are with in the moment. This is how we will change the world.” (I put that in quotes because this is exactly what Jesus told Howard Storm when he met with Jesus in the angels in a Near Death experience. I interviewed Howard Storm on my radio show, Sozo Talk Radio. You can listen to that here.)

Be blessed and be filled with God’s Holy Spirit so you can be the love this world so desperately needs!

St. Patrick’s Confession

St. Patrick’s Confession – SOZO EP0007

Enjoy this reading of St. Patrick Confession – with hilariously unique intro and read with an accent!

The only thing you really need to know about St. Patrick is that he was fond of all things green – wearing green robes (as you can see from the very accurate portrayal of him below), was fond of drinking green beer, giving out shamrocks, and dancing with leprechauns. He carried a staff and with it drove all the snakes out of Ireland (I heard from from a reliable source that he put ’em all in a wooden box and threw ’em in the river).

st patrick snakes

What can truly be known of the life of St. Patrick missionary to Ireland? Many legends and myths surround the man but thankfully there are two documents that scholars believe to have been written by Patrick himself. The Confessio and his Epistola. (Source material for these and much other historical evidence can be found here: https://www.confessio.ie/etexts/confessio_english#undefined)

Exposing The Family International Cult

David Berg started the cult formerly known as Children of God in 1968. I have written about this cult before in my Blog entitled Christian Sex Cult including a dream which specifically led me to expose this cult. Please read it to better understand what this cult is all about. It’s definitely worth reading!

My greatest motivation for doing this is that people will never fall prey to this (or any other) cult and to bring healing to the hearts of all who have been abused (sexually or otherwise) by The Family International. To the latter I would say:

Jesus didn’t do this to you! His heart breaks for you and he wants to heal you and bring you through this!

Just tonight in my continued research to expose this demonic cult, I came across this interview with sisters Kristina, Celeste, and Juliana:

It is saddening, shocking, disturbing what this cult did to these women.

not without my sisterTonight I bought their book “Not Without My Sister” and have invited these women to be interviewed on my radio show, Sozo Talk Radio (www.sozotalkradio.com).

They are more than survivors and I’m so proud of them. They have overcome some of the worst trauma Satan has to offer – and the most perverse part is that it was done in Jesus name!

It’s just like Satan to blame God for what he and evil men do. There are so many victims stories I’ve come across where they have abandoned Jesus altogether because his name has been so maligned.

But Jesus never abandons them. And, even though the enemy has perverted his Name Jesus will make it right in the end and comfort the brokenhearted victims of this great evil.

Please continue to pray for these women and pray for God to inspire people to make right decisions and act on behalf of the children still trapped in this cult.

I have a friend who came out of this cult whose daughter is being held and she was not allowed to see my friend for many months. He is working with the legal system to get visiting rights of his own daughter.

Here is 20/20 Expose that followed a women’s story as she tries to get back her children from this cult in Thailand:

It was gut wrenching watching this and the saddest part about this Expose was when they interviewed the children at the end.

How does someone get un-brainwashed? How long does it take?

I can say from personal experience, it takes a while for someone to humble themselves to admit they were wrong or that you were following the wrong person.

David Berg was definitely “the wrong person” to follow. He led his followers into darkness and preached and promoted hell. I really don’t believe he knew the real Jesus but an antichrist demonic imposter.

How do I know this?

David Berg felt justified by his “Jesus” to rape little girls and encourage all his followers into this kind of sexual immorality. Do you really want to know the details?

I assure you David Berg was possessed by the worst kind of demons. Unless he somehow found repentance, I am convinced he is now experiencing the very hell he spent his life creating now that he is in the afterlife.

Help me expose this demonic cult!

ps. If your “Jesus” says sin is alright, then you are likely following an AntiChrist imposter as well. Sin is anti-love and God is love. Get acquainted with what love really is by reading the Scriptures asking the author, Holy Spirit, to illuminate the Truth as you immerse your mind in the Word of God.
