Deficient

Mocking political leaders indicates you’re deficient in moral authority, and lack credibility and intelligence.

The meaning of intimacy with God

December 12, 2019

If Christians think of intimacy with God in purely ecstatic terms then they’re heading for a crash, they’re going to be deceived.

“All” we can do

December 12, 2019

The NE India conflict. (This is for Christians)

 

We say, “all” we can do is pray.

 

And it’s true it is “all” we can do in this situation.

 

But it also happens to be the greatest thing we can do.

 

We cannot fight according to the flesh.

 

We must go to the Throne of Grace and petition the highest authority to “fight”.

 

Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, this day on earth as it is in heaven.

 

It doesn’t mean heaven will come to earth in this present age.

 

It means, as God’s will is done in heaven, so should it be done on earth.

 

The work of God on earth is very different in many respects than to His work in Heaven.

The greatest conflict is the spiritual “battleground” for souls.

History repeating

December 12, 2019

Quote

 

The Cultural Revolution, formally the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, was a sociopolitical movement in the People’s Republic of China from 1966 until 1976. Launched by Mao Zedong, then Chairman of the Communist Party of China, its stated goal was to preserve Chinese Communism by purging remnants of capitalist and traditional elements from Chinese society, and to re-impose Mao Zedong Thought (known outside China as Maoism) as the dominant ideology in the Communist Party of China (CPC).

Consider this: “…purging remnants of capitalist and traditional elements from Chinese society…”

 

Well, well, well.

 

History does indeed repeat.

 

Western education: What are they learning? They’re learning ideology.

 

Echoes of the Cultural Revolution in China?

Imagination

December 11, 2019

The person who says they follow Jesus, but has a low view of His word, follows a “jesus” of their own imagination.

No time for it

December 11, 2019

People had less psychological issues a couple of generations ago because they had to work hard to survive, so they didn’t have time for it.

Just like him

December 11, 2019

Isn’t it just like the devil to elevate man’s opinions above the authority of Scripture?

How do you know?

December 10, 2019

Who says?

 

How do you know?

 

Subject?  The authority of Scripture.

There’s often a “competition” between pseudo spiritual folks and God about who’s word is the final authority.

Who says?

December 10, 2019

Any spiritual truth, in order to be truth, has to have truly come from God, and therefore be true on that basis: that is, for it to be authoritatively true,  God must be the author of it.

 

The Jews were right to ask Jesus, ‘By what or whose authority do you speak?’

 

They understood, rightly, that if a man speaks by his own authority, he is speaking his own truth, that is, he is the originator of it (or the devil) and not God.

 

False Christians have a low view of God’s word because they have a high view of man’s word, especially their own.

The institutional church has not taught people to think conceptually.

 

You can be talking about scriptural concepts and principles, and they have no idea it is scriptural truth, because they don’t think conceptually, only superficially, on the surface.

Often people will not know that scripture says it unless you say, scripture says.

Accidentally church

December 10, 2019

If you take away Santa, Reindeer, Trees and lights, and just have a blessed fellowship with the followers of Jesus on that day, it might cross your mind that it’s simply “church” you’re doing, and that you should do this often.

Prayer

December 10, 2019

If we don’t pray it must be we don’t need God’s help, or we don’t know anyone who needs His help, or don’t care either way.

Prayer is the conduit to receive from God.

 

You don’t have because you don’t ask, scripture says.

Look ahead

December 10, 2019

Don’t look back, look ahead and say, Lord, what can you do with my life?

 

Believe in what the Lord Jesus can do in your life, and believe He will do it.

Proud of what?

December 9, 2019

What could I boast of or feel proud of when I haven’t loved God with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my mind, and with all my strength?

By definition

December 9, 2019

The materialistic Christian is carnal and lukewarm, by definition.

A source of depression

December 9, 2019

There are true Christians who’ve got mixed up in the NAR and Bethel movement, and, because they are trying to mix the Holy Spirit with the demonic, light with darkness, they suffer severe bouts of depression. This is the chastening of the Lord, to make them wake up.

The flatterer

December 9, 2019

Quote

 

A man who flatters his neighbor Spreads a net for his feet. – Proverbs 29:5

 

The flatterer is a cruel deceiver. Beware of those who speak smooth things and position themselves as the really loving Christians. Better to surround yourself with those believers who speak TRUE things in humility and love. What you hear might not make you feel as good as flattery does but you’ll find it more favorable in the end.

 

He who rebukes a man will find more favor afterward Than he who flatters with the tongue. -Proverbs 28:23

 

A forgotten attribute of true Godly love is that it does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth (1 Corinthians 13:6). It also abounds in knowledge and discernment ( Philippians 1:9).

 

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. -1 John 5:2

 

Anyone who claims to love other Christians but outright rejects very clear issues in the NT is a deceiver.

A good meeting

December 9, 2019

When the Holy Spirit does a work in hearts, that’s a good meeting.

When love was blind

December 8, 2019

The theory of Natural Selection presumes creatures would have had to first evolve eyes which work before they could start selecting desirable mates to mate with.

 

Unless love was truly blind. 😀

Oh yes

December 8, 2019

400 million people have installed the YouVersion Bible app.

 

Oh yes.

You’re a capitalist

December 8, 2019

If you enjoy any of the comforts or benefits of modern technology then you’re a capitalist at heart.
