That’s what Jesus said

June 11, 2021

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matt. 7:21-23)

Here we have “Christians” who seem to have all the right beliefs, confessing Jesus as Lord, and perhaps they are notable pastors or evangelists, casting out demons, healing the sick, preaching the Gospel, but they never truly repented of their sin, and they were never born again, and never had the true Holy Spirit, and they end up in hell.

You could be following such a person.

I’m doing great because God’s promises are true and I’m experiencing His promises.

We can teach God’s word, but we can’t impart the ability to understand it.

Some degree of material prosperity is promised in the New Testament, but it is not promised to those who seek after material prosperity.

Consider:

Matt. 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

And…

Mark 10:29-30

This is very rarely taught.

Most people are seeking material prosperity.

This means they are not seeking first the Kingdom of God.

The Lord knows how much faith we have because He gave it to us, and sustains our life, and watches and weighs everything we say, do and think.

“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.

Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.” (Matt. 25:1-2)

And you know how it ends.

It means there are many people today who are looking for Jesus’ return who will miss out on His Kingdom.

The foolish “Christian” is not going to make it.

Foolish means stupid.

These are “Christians” obsessed with stupid things.

Faith is about far more than getting us to Heaven, it’s about a victorious life against insurmountable odds, today.

The Cross of Jesus Christ removes any grounds for self glory.

…..

Commented that Calvinists don’t believe the warnings in scripture are addressed to them.

Someone replied, Oh, yes they do believe the warnings!

I replied, no, they don’t believe the warnings, because they don’t believe it’s possible for them to fall away.

The warnings are not merely about losing rewards, but of being ultimately rejected by Christ.

To say it is impossible for a believer to fall away is the same as saying the warnings are only to false converts.

……

Christian, go for great faith, not little faith.

Even the darkest days in history had a beautiful sunrise and sunset.

The Bible says God gives life and breath to every creature. The natural is sustained by the supernatural. And science still doesn’t know what life is, let alone create it.

…….

If you’re an atheist, how confident are you in your atheism? As you prepare to die are you happy knowing that you don’t have a soul, and that everything is meaningless, and you will simply cease to exist? Are you absolutely sure about that?

…….

If it matters to Him, it should matter to us.

……

Perhaps the toughest thing Jesus said:

“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you” (Matt. 5:44)

If you were a Jew in the Holocaust, could you imagine loving and blessing those who were sending you and your family to the gas chambers? Could you refuse to hate and revile them simply out of obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ, despite what you felt like doing?

It’s a very tough call.

…….

Christian, are you a vessel for the ministry of the Holy Spirit through you?

……

Everyone will give an account to God.

Better to give it today.

The celebration of evil is the consummation of evil.

Those who celebrate evil, are, themselves, evil.

……

Faith is enough, because Jesus is enough.

…..

You’re standing there before God’s Judgment throne. All of your life is revealed like a movie. All of your words, actions and thoughts. All is revealed, Jesus said.

The evidence that you deserve death is crushing.

Then the Lord Jesus Christ thunders, “Forgiven!” “He is mine!”

All the assembly of Heaven agrees.

All the multitudes praise the Judge. He judges righteously.

And you are overwhelmed with thankfulness for the Cross.

And you bow in pure love, adoration and worship before the Man who suffered and died on the Cross for you.

……

If we do His will, that’s more than enough.

……

The Bible says God will judge everyone.

He is the perfect judge. He will judge perfectly justly, in accordance with His law. Jesus said the word He has spoken will be the judge.

Jesus Christ is both the Savior and the Judge.

So you better make sure today that He is your Savior.

A true Christian can have deep abiding peace that they will be judged by their Savior, who bore their sins in His own body on the Cross.

On the subject of the natural mind.

Liberal theologians are not born again, and yet they write volumes of theological study.

So, we take it that they are using their natural mind, and are not taught by the Spirit.

So, it is possible for people to know all the theology but not be born again.

Its possible for such people to create long and complex theological arguments using scripture and all the words in the theological dictionary, and yet the Holy Spirit has nothing to do with it, it is all the product of the natural mind.

……

Take Him at His word.

When we think of our limitations we also need to remember God has no limitations.

……

Commented

It raises the question as to WHY God chose to put a limit on what we can comprehend about Him and His actions?

There is a good reason why we will only fully comprehend when we get to glory.

God designed it all so we would need to trust what He said and promised.

The life of a disciple of Jesus is lived in harmony with Heaven, so it’s quite natural for them to pass over into Heaven when it is their time.

……

We are not waiting till Judgment Day to find out whether our name is in the Book of Life if indeed, “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,” (Rom. 8:16)

Jesus said the majority of people are on the road to Hell.

And salvation is only through Him.

……

In Christianity, what makes a song great is the greatness of the truth it conveys.

Other people’s sins can affect our lives dramatically, however, those things can’t change the fact that God still “works all things together for good, for those who love the Lord and who are called according to His purpose”.

……

“One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind.” (Rom. 14:5)

I’m one who esteems every day alike.

…..

When God reveals Jesus to a person it doesn’t imply He is forcing their will.

So, in such cases, He chose to reveal Himself to that person, yet without forcing their will.

If they respond to that revelation it’s not because they are forced to respond.

It has to be our decision.

As marriage is a picture of salvation, the Bridegroom calling His Bride, then in natural marriage, the bridegroom only wants to marry the bride who wants to be married to him. He wouldn’t want to marry a bride who didnt want to be married to him.

The woman has to have a choice in the matter.

We can also say, that when an amazing gift is offered to us, it kind of makes up our mind for us.

With the marriage analogy, the bride doesn’t earn her place as a bride because the man has already chosen her, and therefore there is nothing she needs to do to get him to marry her if he has already decided and chosen her. All that is there for her to do is to accept the proposal.

So, this is a picture of our salvation.

Jesus died for all, the scrioture says, so if anyone believes on Him, and accepts Him, His promises, and all He has done, then that act of acceptance is not a “work” as in trying to be saved by good works. She can’t boast that she accepted the proposal.

If I won a million dollars in the lottery and then went down to the bank and signed for it, accepting it, I can’t boast that by accepting it I earned it or achieved it, or deserved it.

I’ve heard people say that if people have a free will to choose then that means they have earned their salvation, which is not true.

…….

The wonder of God’s absolute Sovereignty is that He can work His will without violating or taking away man’s freewill.

That’s what He does. No one can figure out how He does it, but He does it anyway. It is beyond the capacity of the human mind.

Generally, people don’t like things beyond the capacity of their mind.

…..

A funny thing about social media is people voluntarily make their own private business everyone else’s business.

…..

If a person knows who Jesus Christ really is, how could they support anything which denies who He is, such as Ecumenical prayer? That would be treason.

……

Here in India we daily hear of people known to us dying. Day after day it goes on. Today, five people known to us have died.

All this because a lab in China, funded by Obama, was purposely creating new viruses more deadly than previous ones. They say it was for research, but can China be trusted that it wasn’t part of their bio weapons program?

What blind trust Obama put in the Chinese regime? He trusted a totally barbaric, inhumane government, which has a long list of atrocities to its name.

Or, was Obama part of a nefarious plan?

Innocent until proven guilty.

Nothing we invest in the Kingdom is ever wasted: to the contrary, the returns are more than we can imagine.

False teaching is not to openly turn people away from God, but to make them feel close to God while not truly repentant in their heart of their sin and pride. So it offers a substitute for God.

Money preachers twist scripture to make covetousness appear as if it’s not a sin, but a virtue.

……

“But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”” (Luke 10:29)

See how this man wanted to justify his lack of love for people and still think himself righteous?

To do this he had to invent a doctrine which says, my neighbor doesn’t actually mean my neighbor.

And Jesus straightens him out.

Jesus exposes and removes the doctrinal loophole the man was trying to create in order to justify his own sin.

……

The essence of false teaching is to justify wrong action. This has been true from the very first false teaching, “you shall not die” , which satan preached to Adam and Eve.

Anyone drawn to false teaching is drawn by his own sinful nature to it.

It can simply be a matter of the false teaching bolstering ones pride or elitist superiority, or it can be a loophole to justify any kind of sin, and still feel spiritual and blessed by God.

……

What is your role in the Kingdom of Heaven?

……

“Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

(Matthew 5:19)

So, a lot of people are going to be “the least” in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Then, the next verse qualifies whether they will be in or out.

……

“…On that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.” (Gen. 7:11b-12)

Some people question how forty days of rainfall can cover mountains?

a. It wasn’t just rain, it says subterranean water came up.

b. The pre-flood world was very different. There was no rain, but only dew, scripture says. So there obviously was a lot of water vapor held in the atmosphere, but it didn’t rain.

c. The earth was originally all ocean. Then God made dry land appear. Then, only part of the planet was land, and the rest ocean.

d. If the “fountains” under the earth were opened up, then that’s describing a global cataclysm. It “could” be that the modern scientific theory of an ancient super-continent, called Pangaea or Gondwana, is true, and before the flood there was one land mass, and, therefore, the flood was specifically concentrated on this land mass, and these cataclysmic events, as well as the changes in the earth’s crust by all the water coming out, were the catalyst which split this single land mass into the tectonic continental plates we know today. Geologists know that vast sections of the earth were once under water.

e. This would also explain how the animals came into the Ship, because it was a single land mass with no sea barriers, and perhaps not as big as we think.

Israel

May 15, 2021

“Now the LORD had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Gen 12:1-3)

At the very bare minimum, to “bless” someone means to seek their good. It doesn’t mean you approve of their faults or ignore them. It doesn’t mean you think they are perfect.

Jesus said to bless those who curse you and do not curse them. It doesn’t mean you are siding with your enemy because you bless your enemy.

So, as God hasn’t changed, if you bless natural Israel, you’ll be blessed. And God has promised to destroy every nation that comes against her.

So, to bless Israel doesn’t mean you support everything Israel does, and it certainly doesn’t mean you curse the Arabs.

It doesn’t mean you “take sides with Israel” or say you are on “their side”.

It means, when the world hates them because they are God’s chosen people, and denies their right to their God given homeland, you don’t side with their enemies.

Most of Israel is still living in darkness, but still God commands us to bless them.

Even in Old Testament times, when Israel backslid and came under God’s judgment, the Abrahamic blessing was still in effect – it has never been rescinded.

Biblically and historically, “nationhood” was defined as a specific ethnic group united by a shared language and religion. It was tribal by nature.

In this sense, you would say the Biblical nation of Israel has never ceased to be.

If, and only if, the present day enemies of Israel are able to defeat them, we wouldn’t rejoice, but we would accept God’s sovereign hand is at work.

No one rejoiced to see the Holocaust, except the totally morally reprobate, and yet God allowed it to happen.

Would you have “sided” with Israel or the Nazis?

You would have blessed Israel anyway, even if they were under God’s judgment.

At the bare minimum, you wouldn’t call the Holocaust a mere coincidence, a happenstance – something that just happened which has no spiritual meaning.

While most will agree that our relationship to God is covenantal and not contractual, the use of the word “if” attached to the promises of God all through scripture indicates a condition.

So, the Covenant can be refused, but it doesn’t make the Covenant into a contract, it acknowledges that man still has a choice in the matter of whether he will remain in the Covenant.

Hence the use of the word “if” in regard to the promises of God.

The natural mind is not able to understand the parallel truths that God is Sovereign and man still has a choice.

The natural mind will say, If God is Sovereign, then man doesn’t have a choice.

Or, If man has a choice, then God is not Sovereign.

Recently, I had a man try to explain to me, using theological jargon, that “if” doesn’t actually mean, “if”.

Of course, I have to give him the benefit of the doubt that he doesn’t know what he is saying, and that he’s not intentionally being a fraud.

Being content in Christ means we don’t use other things as a source of contentment.

Similarly, there are so many good things in life, but we’re not to use them as our source of contentment.

And we might learn this the hard way.

……

Here’s a very weak analogy to explain the existence of the modern state of Israel.

Imagine the native Americans, who once owned America, had a national resurgence, became militarily powerful, and decided to take back their land from the European settlers? They could rightfully claim it’s their land by virtue of thousands of years of prior possession. But the “settlers”, which we will call “Americans”, even though there is no prior history of such a people as “Americans”, may say they have possession of the land, and even revise history to edit out the real history of the Natives. And, in the end, the Americans might say, If God is for us then He will keep us in possession of the land.

It’s a very weak analogy.

Regarding Israel, “might” will decide the final outcome.

To the Islamic mind, the Jews are occupying Islamic land, and if this is so, then, surely, Allah will eventually help them to evict them from the land Allah gave them.

The Bible indicates that in the end, though the whole world comes against them, God will defend them.

Not because they are superior people, but to keep His promise to them.

In the end, Allah won’t be able to help the whole world evict or annihilate the Jews.

“It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”

Zechariah 12:9-10

Here, God says “they will look on me whom they pierced”.

Pretty obvious who it is they pierced.

And, this Man is God, because God says they pierced Him.

So, if you don’t want God to destroy you, don’t come against the Jewish people.

……

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)

The subject is the coming of the Lawless one. “The lie”, referred to here, is then the lie that the Lawless one is not Lawless, but just the opposite, the Messiah, God incarnate.

Remember, the lying signs and wonders are to supposedly prove this man is from God, or is God.

He’s not just accepted because he is a good politician, very intelligent, or even a very nice person, he is accepted because of supernatural power associated with him.

It’s the perfect blend of religion and politics, and the marriage of both.

If you don’t believe the truth, you believe a lie, by default.

You know, over the last 2000 years Jesus has brought millions of people just like you and me to glory, and they’re with Him right now. He can bring you too, if that’s what you would like.

……

It’s not time yet for God to deliver Israel from its enemies and reveal Messiah to them. That time will come, but there’s a very rough ride still ahead, and the Antichrist, who will deceive many of them.

…….

With anything we say it’s always a question of, What do we mean by that?

……

In our own experience we know what it is like to extend love to people who don’t want our love.

God has certainly extended His love to the whole human race through giving His Son to die for all.

So, our message should be, Christ died for you, rather than, God loves you, because it explains the nature of God’s love and avoids a misunderstanding of it whereby unrepentant people wrongly get the idea they are safe from the wrath of God.

…..

“God loves everyone, but He doesn’t accept everyone.”

…There is a condition to being accepted by God, according to Jesus Christ, in John chapter 3.

……

Understanding how God loves the world and yet will condemn forever those who don’t repent:

Jesus commands us to love our enemies and do good to them, because that is how the Father is: He sends the rain on the just and the unjust, and He is not willing any perish, but that all come to repentance.

So, God’s love for the world is understood in how we are to love our enemies: not a romantic kind of love, but a desire for them to be saved.

Jesus wouldn’t ask us to love our enemies if He didn’t.

“But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.”

(Luke 6:35-36)

……

God’s time always comes soon enough and on time, and it’s very encouraging to know there is little time left, for that’s why Jesus said, when you see these things happening, look up, for your redemption draws near: and that’s the greatest encouragement, to know He is coming soon.

Look up. That’s the right kind of focus.

For God to wipe out the debt we owe Him and then declare us righteous in His sight – How great is that?

There’s a dilemma, that when we speak of Jesus and Salvation, people invariably think of “the church”, and the dilemma is that, usually, they have a false concept of what “the church” is: they might think of stained glass windows, costumes, televangelists and private jets, charlatans, popes… or bad experiences they’ve had with “Christians”. So, realize that none of that stuff has anything to do with you personally knowing Jesus Christ and being saved.

“For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” (Rom. 8:3-4)

What is it that the law could not do?

It couldn’t take out the heart of stone and replace it with a new, tender heart of flesh.

It couldn’t empower the hearer to keep the moral law. It could only tell them they’re wrong.

It couldn’t set them free from their sins.

It couldn’t forgive their sins.

“Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is one Lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another?” (James 4:11-12)

a. In this letter, James is doing a whole lot of general judging in a righteous manner, but he doesn’t “speak evil” of anyone in particular. He doesn’t mock, despise or belittle anyone who is sinning, and this is what he means when he warns of “judging a brother”. And, it goes further than simply being rude toward someone, but it means to condemn the person as if you were God, as if you were their judge, and as if it is for you to decide their fate.

b. If we take the place of God and, as it were, push Him aside and take His place as judge, then we are judging Him and His laws. We would be rejecting and mocking Divine order, because, if God has appointed us as judges that would make His law redundant.

c. There is a big difference between condemning someone’s actions and condemning them as a person. The law judges the action. So, that is sufficient. Judge every action according to God’s word without sitting in condemnation over the sinner.

Is anyone among you sick?

April 27, 2021

“Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.” (James 5:14-15)

a. “Is anyone among you sick?” It implies that sickness was the exception, not the rule.

b. The sick person must call the elders. Jesus didn’t go around looking for the sick, they were looking for Him.

c. We assume it’s concerning serious illness, not a cold or a head ache, because, surely, if the person was able to get out of bed they would have gone to the assembly for prayer. It’s for incapacitated people, to call the elders to come to them. Not for people who can’t be bothered going to church and want someone to come and serve them.

d. The elders, plural, are to be called. This assumes the sick person is part of an assembly governed by elders. Note, it doesn’t say to call the pastor, although that would be okay if there are no elders. Call anyone who is a proven man or woman of God. Certainly, calling someone to come might tell you about their true nature as a shepherd, whether they are willing to come or not.

e. Anointing with oil is a symbolic gesture. The prayer of faith will save the sick, the oil won’t save them, however, perhaps, the oil is to remind of how serious such a transaction with God is, and as a practical expression of faith.

f. A group of men are praying, but it’s called “the prayer of faith”, singular. It’s one prayer. It’s a group praying as one voice, in agreement. And Jesus said when we agree together in prayer it will be done.

g. Implied, that if the sickness was caused by sin, the patient is truly sorry and penitent for that sin, so, along with being healed, they are forgiven, and God’s healing that sickness a sign He has forgiven the sin which caused it. And yet not all sickness is caused by sin.

h. It’s fair to say this scenario is nearly extinct from the church. Many people are so self sufficient or depend entirely on medical care or medication, that they wouldn’t do this. And, where would you find a group of elders willing to visit such a patient at any time of the day in an urgent time of need?

8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:6-8)

a. One day Christ’s visible, physical Kingdom will be in Israel and rule over the earth.

b. The times are under the Father’s sovereign authority.

c. It is not given to us to know God’s timing. He has told us what will happen, and the signs of His coming, but He has not told us when.

We could argue that the concept of justice was given to man by God.

It entails a price must be paid: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

Someone murders your child. You would just have to accept the fact that that’s what the murderer wanted to do, so, who are you to seek punishment for the murderer? And why would you seek the punishment of the murderer?

It goes far deeper than deterrence or teaching him a lesson: the scales of justice must be balanced.

There is an innate value called Justice.

Not surprising, then, that when people depart from God then true justice falls in the street, as scripture says.

True justice is becoming a rare commodity.

But God always executes His justice in the end.

No one ever escapes it.

But in the Cross divine justice is satisfied for all who believe.

No one is protesting against them.

Why no outrage?

Because the outrage is politically manufactured.

There is no political objective to be outraged by such forms of racism as this.

……

Ask yourself, What is the purpose of my life?

Then go to the Bible and find out.

In the general sense, scripture describes our purpose in Christ, to know Him and make Him known.

In practical terms, our purpose will depend on where He has placed us.

Our role or purpose would be defined by our relationships and proximity with others, both family and friends.

…….

The greatest thing which can happen to anyone is they get saved, get born again.

…….

Where our heart is, and where our hope is, is where we pray to.

……

How many are totally unprepared for their day in Court? (In God’s courtroom)

Every person will stand trial, without exception.

If you break the law you end up in court.

We broke God’s laws so we end up in His court.

But there’s Good News for all law breakers.

Jesus Christ satisfied the just demands of God’s law for us by paying our penalty. The penalty has been paid in full.

….

The more interested we are in what God thinks about us, the less interested we are in people’s opinions of us.

….

The political or religious zealot might justify lying if it’s for a good cause.

……

If we serve God, He empowers us, rewards us, and satisfies us.

……

Moses didn’t have the ability to preach eloquently, but it didn’t matter because God was with him.

Christian, is prayer, to you, a formality you feel obligated to fulfill before you can proceed with the “real” stuff of life?

“Researchers have created embryos that are part-human and part-monkey”

Oh no, they’re virtually begging God to wipe them out.

It is certainly evil to create such an embryo because it mocks or defies Gods order in creation.

…….

We believe Jesus was and is right, and if you believe He was wrong we would encourage you to rethink your position.

…..

Principle:

After you’ve prayed for rain, carry an umbrella.

“It’s tough to have a revolution if people have a full stomach.”

  • Gene D Agostino

…….

What could please the Father more than to look into your heart and see you’re overwhelmed with thankfulness for the Cross, and for all He has done for you.

……

The mission of a Christian is NOT to let the whole world know how wonderful you are. It’s something more.

…..

God is perfectly just and impartial.

Either Christ pays for our sins, or we suffer the just punishment for our sins.

It will be one or the other.

……

Living by faith is living by answers to prayer.

……

It’s not over till He says it’s over, and our soul takes rest in this fact.

……

I would rather be disturbed by the truth than comforted by a lie.

…….

Say it out loud:

Heaven is my home.

This world is not my home.

Lord Jesus, you are my home.

Home is wherever you are.

(Are you feeling better already?)

……

Christians are not trying to force their values and morals onto others, but the political Left is most definitely trying to force their values and morals onto Christians. They are guilty of exactly the same hate and intolerance which they accuse Christians of having.

…….

Jesus said the meek shall inherit the earth.

The big mouths miss out.

……

“If God is for us, who can be against us?”

Romans 8:31b

……

Three kinds of deception:

a. Trying to earn salvation.

b. Thinking one is saved while remaining in bondage to sin. Having a false assurance. They will cry out, “Lord! Lord! We did wonders in your name!” They will be shocked to find out they were never saved.

c. Thinking that one is saved because sin no longer exists under grace. Those who say they have no sin, so they’re ok. Much of Christendom is swinging this way. Sin is no longer sin.

……

Ignorance is nothing to be ashamed of, but pride in our ignorance is.

……

The Lord is surely pleased with the one who sought His healing sincerely, whether they were healed or not, however, the one who requests healing and makes a positive answer a condition as to whether they will continue to love and trust the Lord is surely not right in their motives and might be testing the Lord.

If people really believed it was God’s perfect will for them to be sick they would never take medicine, see a doctor, or request prayer, lest they be fighting against His will.

……

The importance we place on things of the world directly indicates the lack of importance we place on Christ.

…….

As we tuck into a tasty meal full of healthy goodness it’s a reminder that the goodness comes from the One who alone is Good.
