Man Has Complicated All His Ways

Eccl.7:29 See, this alone I found: God made human beings straightforward, but they search for many complications. (CEB)

EccI. did learn one thing: We were completely honest when God created us, but now we have twisted minds (CEV)

Eccl.This is all that I have learned: God made us plain and simple, but we have made ourselves very complicated. (GNT)

It is a lack of faith that causes mankind to complicate all his ways, trust nobody, and no one! Assume all humans are evil and are dying to get away with evil if laws, complicated legislated laws are not created to prevent the evil found in all of us to erupt!

Matthew 15:19 For out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, sexual sins, thefts, false testimony, and blasphemies.

Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing back; and your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High; for he is kind toward the unthankful and evil.

Truth, yes, for a world alienated from God found in sin, falling short of God's glory. Putting faith in human's, unabated faith, putting faith in human's ends a person in tremendous disappointments.

Luke 11:34 The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body is also full of light; but when it is evil, your body also is full of darkness.

Here is the problems defined in the nut shell! Mankind assumes God is living in fear and distrust as they are in darkness so when translating, speaking of God they have complicated all God's ways, by lack of faith and distrust promoting those same yeast teaching into their religions and doctrines. The whole mass of unleavened bread is fermented about Christ and his teaching; Christ who was full faith and trust for his Father has been corrupted into sinful fears and thoughts of our flesh, complicated into mountains of research and legislated laws.

Revelation 2:4 But I have this against you, that you left your first love.

Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.

The Sin of Complicating

Lack of faith is a sin, the greatest sin we can have for a God of love is to lack faith in his love. We might start out in love for God and end up in a very dark place of trusting nothing but our religious education, amd/or our deep profound research, the history of mankind, the history of the written word, we have left our first love of having simple faith in God's love.

Matthew 18:4 Whoever therefore humbles himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. 18:5 Whoever receives one such little child in my name receives me,

The problems is ignorance at first, confusing faith in God with faith in men representing God, and/or our religion, but that first step of the inexperience one leads down a road of much complication into a great lack of faith for God, changing his glory into a corruptible image of mankind.

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;

Romans 1:23 and traded the glory of the incorruptible God for the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things.

We become harden in the sin by lack of faith into the legal mind of and educated person in religion, and/or the bible. The sounding, and looking good to others, has become our first love in protecting us against looking foolish in Christ for loving God in faith.

1 Corinthians 2:8 which none of the rulers of this world has known. For had they known it, they wouldn't have crucified the Lord of glory.

2Cor.1:9 Yes, we ourselves have had the sentence of death within ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead.

1Cor. 1:27 but God chose the foolish things of the world that he might put to shame those who are wise. God chose the weak things of the world, that he might put to shame the things that are strong;

The evil we bring upon others is to teach the same complicated message in legal terms we have come to know. We think we are being safe and profound in doing so, but not understanding that this is the way of all sinful fallen flesh. The first complication was Satan, and his ideas he thought were profound that he taught to Eve. She thinking God can't be that simple? That easy to trust? So she complicated all her ways into a life of slavery to sin and death.

2Pet.3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fervent heat, and the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

Yes, there is not a subject under the Sun mankind has not complicated instead of coming up with a simple solution. The solution is not enough unless it is couched in many schemes and ideas by a group of complicated attorneys at law. Once there, one must go to a professional to have the problem solved, complicating problems even more that must be unraveled by the legal mind. Once unraveled it spreads into another weed patch of problems until the cure is more deadly than living with the problem.

Jeremiah 10:23 Yahweh, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man who walks to direct his steps.

Matt. 7:7 "Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you.
7:8 For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.
7:9 Or who is there among you, who, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone?
7:10 Or if he asks for a fish, who will give him a serpent?
7:11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

Does anyone of us think for a moment the same devises are not used on God's word the bible? Humans spend hours thinking up cleaver words, and ideas to appear intelligent, to appeal to a certain group of people. There are massive propaganda machine back by billions of dollars to sway peoples thoughts, why would Satan not used the same in religion, why would he not set up doctors of religion, and politician of religion, and advertisers of religiion, legal propagandist, and yes, attorney will trained in bible doctrine?

Matthew 13:33 He spoke another parable to them. "The Kingdom of Heaven is like yeast, which a woman took, and hid in three measures{literally, three sata. 3 sata is about 39 litres or a bit more than a bushel} of meal, until it was all leavened."

Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them quickly. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"

Yeast Teachings

Religious doctor/attorneys of religion have taken the simple thought of a person putting yeast into unleavened bread and created a complicated mystery, but lets uncomplicated it really fast!

Matthew 21:21 Jesus answered them, "Most certainly I tell you, if you have faith, and don't doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you told this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it would be done.

Sin is corruptions, yeast is corruption, all human sin, so they are not truth, they are corruption that puts yeast into Christ the truth, who is the unleavened bread of God we must have to be saved.

Rom.3:4 May it never be! Yes, let God be found true, but every man a liar. As it is written, "That you might be justified in your words, and might prevail when you come into

If we are not taught by Holy Spirit free of corruption of sin found in all of us, we are, putting yeast in to the unleavened bread of Christ, its that simple. Our thoughts no matter how high our IQ is, is corruption to God's sinless glory, hence, to truth and Spirit, we are not the mind of Christ, which is the mind of God that teaches us by Spirit truth, free of corruption polluted by humans who complicate all their ways, in everything under the Sun, that is, religion, government, and commerce.

Romans 8:7 because the mind of the flesh is hostile towards God; for it is not subject to God's law, neither indeed can it be.
1 Corinthians 2:16 "For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct him?"{Isaiah 40:13}

But we have Christ's mind.

John 16:13 However when he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth, for he will not speak from himself; but whatever he hears, he will speak. He will declare to you things that are coming.

That is why God chose the lowly things of this earth looked down on by the complicated, educated ones of this earth. That is why we humans that are taught by Christ cannot love this world and its yeast in anyway or we ourselves will complicated the truth into a polluted adulterate yeast pie!

Hebrews 3:7 Therefore, even as the Holy Spirit says, "Today if you will hear his voice.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

1 Peter 1:12 To them it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to you, they ministered these things, which now have been announced to you through those who preached the Good News to you by the Holy Spirit sent out from heaven; which things angels desire to look into.

Fear of Not Sounding Educated

The flesh is fear, it fears everything, and that is why it is enslaved to everything under the Sun. The fear in the flesh becomes the complication of all things. When leaving the first love of Christ it starts down a road of justifying itself by sounding important while teaching the Christ. It involves itself into the deep things of Christ, which actually is nothing more then a lack of faith, promoted by self-importance which is fear of not looking important to other humans, it is not deep thing - God's love, but profoundly fleshly a shallow minded things that become a lie, an act to look important.

John 5:41 I don't receive glory from men.

John 5:44 How can you believe, who receive glory from one another, and you don't seek the glory that comes from the only God?

Matt.7:5 You hypocrite! First remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother's eye.

Humility is the mark of the Holy Spirit in truth, which will never be acceptable to the flesh, the same flesh that cannot know God, and that is why we are told the world did not know the Christ, and/or will it know the brothers of Christ. When Christ brothers speak with Holy Spirit not originating from our fallen flesh, but originating with God free of corruption of sin those of the flesh can't hear us.

Revelation 13:9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.

1 John 5:19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

1 John 4:5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak of the world, and the world hears them.

1 John 3:13 Don't be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you.

1 John 3:1 Behold, how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! For this cause the world doesn't know us, because it didn't know him.

When one is feed on leaven bread full of yeast it cause a craving for the tasty bread of yeast. But when feed on unleavened bread free of yeast it despise the taste and spits it out! One is the food of weeds, yeast, and the other is the food of wheat, Spirit and truth, without the corruption of yeast. Yeast is the complication of all things of Christ, it is the attorneys mind that trust only in words on paper, not written words in love upon heart of God's children.

1 Corinthians 5:6 Your boasting is not good. Don't you know that a little yeast leavens the whole lump?

1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out the old yeast, that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, has been sacrificed in our place.

1 Corinthians 3:3 for you are still fleshly. For insofar as there is jealousy, strife, and factions among you, aren't you fleshly, and don't you walk in the ways of men?

1 Corinthians 9:11 If we sowed to you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we reap your fleshly things?

These two world are divided by a vast chasm, of light and darkness, and one cannot cross over into the others! Sounding educated, looking important, is of the world of the flesh, in being important upon this earth, making a name like the world Satan created in his complicated ways is the world of weed Christian's, don't be fool or we will soon be complicated ourselves, not trusting in faith as God's love.

Rom.10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith says this, "Don't say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into heaven?'{Deuteronomy 30:12} (that is, to bring Christ down);
10:7 or, 'Who will descend into the abyss?'{Deuteronomy 30:13} (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead.)" 10:8 But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth, and in your heart;"{Deuteronomy 30:14} that is, the word of faith, which we preach:
10:9 that if you will confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Don't we know that a little yeast corrupts the whole lump?

Humility of Salvation

Removing the yeast from Christ, is not done through our efforts, and that is why it requires great humility in our salvation through Christ own merit and works.

Romans 6:19 I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh, for as you presented your members as servants to uncleanness and to wickedness upon wickedness, even so now present your members as servants to righteousness for sanctification.

Romans 8:10 If Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the spirit is alive because of righteousness.

Philippians 3:9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own, that which is of the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;

Bottom line, the complication of all things started with sin entering into our world and it will ends, when Christ takes all sin out of our world.

Revelation 21:1 I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more.

Revelation 21:2 I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready like a bride adorned for her husband.

Revelation 21:5 He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." He said, "Write, for these words of God are faithful and true."

The solution does not depend upon mankind, to add more yeast into making more complicated religions, laws, governments, commerce, and people; more knowledge of yeast does not take yeast out of the loaf, it only spread it more into more complicated ways making people hate one another because they can see the corruption in others better. The increase of knowledge is a lie, it is another complicated scheme to trick human into thinking they can fix sin, and yeast in mankind by what they learn from new knowledge, which is an very old lie and the first lie!, That is nothing more then self-salvation that most Christian's teach and practice in their complicated religions.

Ephesians 2:4 But God, being rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us,

Ephesians 3:17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that you, being rooted and grounded in love.

James.3:10 Out of the same mouth comes forth blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.
3:11 Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water?
3:12 Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water.
3:13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by his good conduct that his deeds are done in gentleness of wisdom.

It is humility that fixes sin in us! It is our faith in God's love that fixes every problem we could every have on earth and on into a new heavens and earth. We acknowledge in humility that we cannot save ourselves, or someone else, we acknowledge we need the direction, and power of God in our lives to be saved us from ourselves and the sinful ways of our flesh.

Hom.7:24 What a wretched man I am! Who will deliver me out of the body of this death? 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ, our Lord! So then with the mind, I myself serve God's law, but with the flesh, the sin's law.

Matt.18:3 and said, "Most certainly I tell you, unless you turn, and become as little children, you will in no way enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 18:4 Whoever therefore humbles himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.
18:5 Whoever receives one such little child in my name receives me, 18:6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him that a huge millstone should be hung around his neck, and that he should be sunk in the depths of the sea.

That power does not exist in mankind complicated ways, his schemes found in religion, government, and commerce, its that simple! We are asking to do God's ways by his direction and teaching of the Holy Spirit. We are asking God to purchase our lives from sin and death into a new life, given freely without our education, research, or importance, not even our flesh, but the a new life, an incorruptible life of Christ Jesus as a free gift of God's love.

Titus 3:5 not by works of righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy, he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,

God did not set up a merit ladder of hierarchy of needs for us to climb into heaven. He did not say: “ work hard everyday, attend meetings, promote the kingdom with commerce, advertising, new schools, new governments, then you have earned the kingdom!”

John 6:28 They said therefore to him, "What must we do, that we may work the works of God?" 6:29 Jesus answered them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent."

God said, he loves the lowly at heart, and resist the proud of heart, he chose those poor, not rich, not rich in doing works of law, not rich in those doing hours of studying for others, not those that boast in the fleshly things, then call them from God, but the things looked down on by the norms of this world, the things considered not worthy of this world, not the complicated, but the simple at heart and mind that believes in the power of God's love!

1Cor. 13:1 If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don't have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.
13:2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don't have love, I am nothing. 13:3 If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don't have love, it profits me nothing.

The love of God truth and Spirit which takes away the judgment of this world, but at the same time takes away the normal rights the flesh allows for all flesh, the rights given to all flesh is taken when we accept the Christ. It is a time of humiliation for God's children just as it was for Christ, trying to complicated that into into degrees, will not change the truth and Spirit this world hates and is trampled upon and despised by the flesh.

Acts 8:33 In his humiliation, his judgment was taken away. Who will declare His generation? For his life is taken from the earth."{Isaiah 53:7,8}

1 Corinthians 4:9 For, I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last of all, like men sentenced to death. For we are made a spectacle to the world, both to angels and men.

We cannot conquer this world by complicated theories, or education, or by religion, we conquer it by faith, faith not in ourselves as giving us merit salvation, but faith in humility we are saved because of Christ victory and goodness, reward by God to us so his power of the Kingdom can completely save us by the power of Christ indestructible life.

2 Corinthians 13:4 For he was crucified through weakness, yet he lives through the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we will live with him through the power of God toward you.

Ephesians 1:19 and what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to that working of the strength of his might

Ephesians 1:21 far above all rule, and authority, and power, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in that which is to come.

Ephesians 3:16 that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that you may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man;

Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.
