A great question

January 22, 2019

This is one of the great questions a person can ask themselves:

 

What do I want in this life, and why do I want it?

Encouraging

January 22, 2019

“But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.”

 

1 John 2:5

The Blood of Christ

January 22, 2019

Only the blood of Christ can remove our guilt.

 

How does it work?

 

You believe He shed His blood and died on your behalf, in your place, and paid the penalty due to you.

Trust

January 21, 2019

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

And lean not on your own understanding;

6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,

And He shall direct your paths.”

 

Proverbs 3:5-6

 

We want to be sure we’re trusting the Lord with ALL our heart.

 

Recommit those things or areas of your life to Him where you’re not sure if you’re trusting Him with all your heart concerning them.

 

It could be there are some areas of your life where you’re leaning on your own understanding.

What is coming

January 21, 2019

“So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.”

 

Revelation 17:3

 

Not so mysterious. The woman represents false Christianity, and the beast she rides is the devil.

 

She’s done a deal with the devil, so to speak.

 

Do you remember the deal satan offered Jesus?

 

Satan said the whole world is his and he can give it to whomever he wants just so long as they worship him.

 

This explains why false expressions of Christianity and false leaders have so much influence over millions.

 

They are riding on the back of the beast. They are only where they are because the beast has carried them there.

 

The deal they have made with the devil is to listen to him more than the word of God.

 

Then, down to verse 16:

 

“And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.”

 

So, they ultimately reap what they’ve sown, and find out the devil is not an honest business partner.

 

These false Christian leaders promised their followers a kingdom on earth – wealth and power just like they had, yet, in the end, God sovereignly arranges that they be destroyed along with their wealth.

 

Can you see the irony? In their arrogance they thought they could rule the world, yet in the end the world turns on them and they lose everything.

 

All the “great” Christian edifices and empires will soon be rubble.

 

God is going to do it, and the beast will be his instrument.

 

Verse 17:

 

“For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. “

Recipe for a good life

One pot of boiled or steamed greens daily.

Forsake it

January 21, 2019

Repost:

Jesus calls us to forsake all that is not of Him and follow Him. If it is not of Him then forsake it.

 

Head in the sand

January 20, 2019

Some folks can’t understand why God is angry, and maybe they’ve got their head in the sand and are immune to all the suffering in the world caused by wicked people.

Immune

January 20, 2019

One thing about true Christianity is that it’s immune from governments banning it.

A fool

January 20, 2019

What is a fool? Someone who hears God’s word and does not heed it.

A sweet thing

January 20, 2019

One of the sweet things in life is when your enemy becomes your friend.

 

Then, imagine how God feels?

A warning

January 20, 2019

“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

 

1 Timothy 6:10

 

If a person “strays from the faith” it means they once had faith and now they don’t.

Explaining that it doesn’t mean what it says

January 20, 2019

Now, we have to bring John Calvin in to explain that it doesn’t mean what it says….

It’s not “too hard”

January 20, 2019

If you think the Christian life is “too hard” then you’ve never met Jesus, or understood His message, or experienced His power.

Hand in a glove

January 20, 2019

A hand in a glove.

 

The glove represents the outer man, the physical.

 

The hand represents the inner man, the spiritual.

Headship is responsibility

January 20, 2019

Male headship in the church and marriage means that it’s the men who are ultimately responsible for the state of the church and the state of a marriage and family.

New Seminar!

January 20, 2019

Welcome to the latest seminar called, “New Things Which You Would Never Learn By Simply Reading The Bible!”

In the Ark

January 19, 2019

37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

 

Matthew 24:37-39

 

In other words, life went on as normal and the overwhelming majority had no idea of what was coming.

 

We understand from this text that the end time will be a parallel of Noah’s time. Society will have degraded itself to the point that God has no other option than to remove it.

 

But God finds one family who is different, who have not followed the society around them into immorality.

 

God rescues that family and destroys the rest.

 

So, this is the time we’re living in, Jesus said.

 

Are you in the Ark, which is Jesus Christ?

 

Or are you outside the Ark waiting for your judgment to come?

The Standard

January 19, 2019

If you are IN Christ then God sees you IN Christ, with His righteousness imputed, and your past sins not imputed, so……..

If you believe this as fact, why would you tolerate sin in your life, and why would you accept a lower standard for the way you live?

Questions

January 19, 2019

Every question is ultimately answered in Jesus Christ.
