If we believe that whatever we ask the Father for in Jesus name He will give us, then, why would we ever cease praying?

……

‘Friends for life’ is increasingly becoming rarer as a self-centered western consumer individualistic lifestyle has spread everywhere.

…..

Follower of Jesus, the outcome of your faith is going to be glorious.

…..

Why should anyone let themselves be manipulated or threatened into lowering their moral values?

What makes Liberals think THEY are now the absolute authority on morality?

Where did they get this idea?

…….

Jesus taught that people learn to hate from their father the devil.

A hater shows who their real spiritual father is.

Have you ever considered that you might hate God?

To hate His truth and commands is to hate Him.

You may not think, “I hate you God!”, but what if you’re holding Him in contempt?

……

Sects or cults all give their devotees one small task to earn their ticket to heaven. The idea that if they just jump through this one hoop they are assured of Heaven appeals to multitudes, because, then, they can feel righteous that they have fulfilled their part of the deal.

Whether it be Saturday church, or Sunday church, or speaking in tongues, or taking the mass, or getting baptized, or recognizing a supposed anointed Apostle or Prophet…. it makes no difference, they are just as lost now as they were before, only now they have been immunized from hearing the truth.

…….

Godly marriages and families glorify God and establish righteousness, and satan has an insane hatred for anything which glorifies God (he is insanely jealous of God) so such things are his number one target.

……..

What kind of Judge will Jesus Christ be when He returns to judge the whole human race?

Simply read what He said, then you’ll know.

It’s not a good idea to stand behind someone who’s shooting at the police.

Reposting

Human nature is such that people only question truths of God’s word when they want to justify actions they know God does not approve of.

……

“How is your ministry going?”

Hmmm? OK, let me “carry out the ministry” on you for 5 minutes, and then you can tell me how it’s going.

😁

…….

Don’t confuse one who has been influenced externally by the Holy Spirit with one who has the Holy Spirit in them.

……

A guy might be sold on Chik-Fil-A and you’ll always find him there. Or another on Macdonalds.

Churches are similar.

Some are drawn to junk food. Some are drawn to real food.

So, our only concern is to provide the real spiritual food of God’s Word at no cost.

And those who are drawn to that will come.

And those who don’t like the taste of God’s Word will go elsewhere, where their itching ears and ego can be stroked, and the lusts of their flesh gratified and justified, and their lukewarmness affirmed.

……..

Eternity is a long time

In eternity we are not bound to time like we are now, but the Greek phrase “forever and ever” literally means, unto the ages of the ages.

Without time nothing would have meaning.

If It takes 3 seconds to speak a sentence here, how long does it take to speak the same sentence in heaven?

I would avoid any interpretation which detracts from the reality of life in heaven.

It’s not some altered state of consciousness.

We know that because Jesus ascended there in a physical body, is there today in a physical body, and is returning in that same physical body.

I’m using the example of speaking sentences to point out how basic life is the same there as it is here in those terms, that is, we will use our physical mouth to speak in a common language, rather than some kind of telepathic communication.

We know this because when John went there he was spoken to and he heard it, it wasnt telepathic.

I believe time will seem irrelevant in Heaven because we have forever.

Down here the clock dominates our lives in some respects, and we can’t escape needing to allocate time to different things, especially since we get tired.

I would liken it to a situation where you are so blessed by God that time seems irrelevant and flies by without us talking note of it.

God didn’t need to give us the gift of prayer, as if He needed our help, but, by doing so, He involved us in His work, even to the point of partaking of His compassionate nature and sharing His heart of mercy.

If He had not given us the gift and responsibility of prayer we would never have come to know Him or be conformed to His Son.

………

Speaking the truth doesn’t mean we think we are going to change the world, but we do think it would be a crime to remain silent.

…..

God answers prayer, and if He didn’t we would be in big trouble.

Do we love Him the way we should?

If not, we need more of the freedom He gives.

“He who the Son sets free is free indeed”

…….

There is only one Holy Spirit, not many Holy Spirits, and He unites all true followers of Jesus.

……

Human sacrifice was a frightening part of some ancient societies, and is still practiced today in some places.

They believed the ultimate sacrifice was a human sacrifice, because a person is the most precious thing in creation.

Did you know that God performed a human sacrifice?

He gave His Son as a human sacrifice to pay for the sin of the whole world.

The Son gave His own life, sacrificing His life to save ours.

The most precious Person paid the price.

The transaction was complete.

Our sins were paid in full.

Who ever truly believes this possesses everything that Jesus accomplished when He died and rose again – forgiveness of sins, a new creation and eternal life.

…….

Biblically, the “church” is the sum total of people who truly follow Jesus Christ.

It’s not an organization.

Alternately, the apostate “church” is all who claim to be Christians and yet don’t truly follow Jesus Christ, and are not saved.

…….

“I would be most appreciative, if, when I’m judging you, that you don’t judge me back, because Jesus said, Don’t judge!”

A follower of Jesus is never at a disadvantage.

Never.

…….

Jesus said to pray God’s Kingdom come and His will be done, so that’s what we do when we pray for folks, we pray that they will experience His Kingdom and do His will.

God’s desire is that you be saved.

What do you think about that?

See 1 Tim. 2:4

Three Traps

September 23, 2020

Sharing this from a good friend, Jim Niezgoda in Albuquerque:

Quote

“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.” – Acts 2:42

When I began fellowshipping house to house 15+ years ago I mostly found believers who had burning hearts for Christ, His true Gospel, prayer, evangelism, holiness, real fellowship, and “one anothering”. If you are part of a church like that it would be appropriate to fall on your face and praise God for it. You have something very precious and you should pray for it without ceasing. The sad reality is that the “house church movement” today is nothing like what I described and has been flooded by satan in three distinct ways.

1) Liberal “christians” who deny scripture and approve of sin


2) False “prophetic” people who worship their emotions and demons


3) Judaizers who seek to put God’s people under bondage, replacing the Spirit with flesh

As a whole, the house church movement today is mostly a counterfeit of New Testament Christianity. It’s far more errant, and infinitely more abhorrent, than small institutional churches who are faithful with the Gospel, have a plurality of elders, and try their best within the confines of their traditions to promote love feasts, true fellowship, and body life.

If I read scripture correctly, we should expect every area of Christendom to become increasingly counterfeit and errant as the age closes – including the house church movement. This is not meant to discourage any true believer from meeting house to house. It is just a warning about what you might find there. Keep yourself in the truth of Christ as revealed in the scriptures (including the hard sayings). Stay close to Him in prayer and ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Submit yourself to His lordship, this is no time for half heartedly following Jesus. I’m preaching to myself as much as anyone else here.

The difference between ACTUAL Hate Speech and purported Hate Speech: that which is deemed as such for ideological purposes:

Was just scrolling down through all the uncensored ACTUAL Hate Speech directed at Trump.

You know, vile language, expletives, mockery and the like – things which constitute actual hate, and not simply “hate” as it is now defined, as having a different opinion.

Political correctness is truly a political game and a tool for a political purpose.

Do you see the difference between ACTUAL Hate Speech and that which is deemed Hate Speech because it clashes with someone’s opinion?

“And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of THE OLIVE TREE, do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.”

Romans 11:17-18

My opinion is that the Olive Tree and the True Vine (John 15) are both Christ.

It appears the Olive Tree pre-dates the church.

“…and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that rock was Christ.”
1 Corinthians 10:4

Taking the whole of chapter 11 into consideration we could say that natural Israel are presently branches of the Olive Tree which have been cut off from the Tree, therefore the Tree, itself, could not singularly refer to natural Israel, as natural Israel is presently cut off from the tree, but will again be grafted in.

“….how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?” 24b

We Gentile believers have been grafted into the Olive Tree.

We have been grafted into Christ.

So, there is the Israel of God, or spiritual Israel, and there is natural Israel, whom are predestined to be grafted into Christ, the Olive Tree, the True Vine.

But this does not justify Replacement Theology, because that does not recognize God’s distinct plan and purpose in blinding natural Israel, and then, finally, grafting them in again.

The church cannot be the Olive Tree because it is grafted in to the Olive Tree.

Therefore, the church, singular, cannot be Israel or replace Israel.

I would put it like this: Jewish followers of Christ are just branches grafted in, and Gentile followers are also just branches grafted in, but Christ is the Tree.

“Then Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?”

14 And God said to Moses, “i am WHO i am.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘i am has sent me to you.’” “

The word “Israel” has multiple usage in scripture:

A. It can refer to the Land.

B. It can refer to the natural descendants of Abraham, as well as proselytes.

C. It can refer to all those in Christ, whether Jew or Gentile.

….. so therefore Replacement Theology ignores this fact.

Also, the Olive Tree of Romans 11 would seem to be the same symbolism used in John 15 regarding the True Vine, as the concept of grafting in and cutting off of branches is the same, which would lead me to believe the Olive Tree is Christ, Himself.

………

No one can fully explain Predestination, as tying it all together in our mind is impossible.

Both Calvinism and Arminianism have some scriptural basis, but both are wrong individually due to the amount of scriptures they ignore to make the theory work, or the absurd contortions they put on those texts to make them fit the theory.

For example, there is not yet a reasonable explanation why God would desire all men to be saved knowing He has already predestined them for Hell?

Or why He would call many, but with no intention at all of saving them?

I think foreknowledge gives us a clue, and yet it’s still beyond our comprehension.

“….elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ:”

1 Peter 1:2

………

The word “sin” might seem outdated in today’s world,  but,  ironically,     sin has escalated in society,  and the word or concept has become. uncool.

To deny the existence of one’s own sin is a denial of reality, to cling to an illusion, because sin is the fabric of our being, we are born that way, the Bible says.

This sin nature is an inherited nature, not learned. Sure, we learn to sin, but only because it is our nature to begin with.

Sin is the breaking of God’s laws.

Jesus went straight to the heart of it – if you have lust in your heart or thoughts you’re an adulterer. If we hate anyone we are a murderer.

Jesus said all manner of sins spring forth from the human heart and defile man.

The Bible says Jesus came to save sinners, to destroy the power or slavery of sin, and make us children of God.

He accomplished this by dying on the Cross.

By making Himself a sacrificial offering for sin He was once and for all destroying its power over man.

And if we truly believe Him and follow Him then His victory is ours.

……..

The story of the Chinese virologist dissident who claims to have blown the whistle on Wuhan Labs has been around for months but is only now being picked up by the media. Why now? Has someone behind the scenes decided now is the time to escalate tensions with China?

And, where might escalated tension with China lead things?

They are certainly going to take such allegations as aggression.

And if the allegations are proved to be true, what can the world do about it?

And further to the mix, is Obama’s connection to Wuhan Lab going to be probed?

Just some thoughts.

……..

God’s love is more than we can imagine.

And His wrath is also more than we can imagine.

…….

Continuing on the subject of election/predestination/foreknowledge:

It’s essential to define the use of the word “control” as this is the key issue: How does God sovereignly rule over the nations and yet not control all their actions, as in, force them to do evil?

God is in control, but He is not causing evil.

When evil is committed it’s not as if God controlled them to do it.

And yet God is in control.

And, when people commit evil, does it mean they have fought against God and defeated His rule and authority?

If a truly born again person sins does it mean they have defeated the work of the grace of God in them by the Spirit?

Would it mean the Holy Spirit lost that fight by supposedly failing to prevent the sin?

Would it indicate the work of grace was somehow not good enough to keep him from sinning?

From a practical application standpoint, what are we to apply in our lives when we consider Biblical foreknowledge and predestination?

A. Know that He foreknew you, chose and predestined you.

B. Know that it is by His grace and mercy alone you are saved.

C. Don’t trust in anything good you’ve done.

D. Know that if you sin the Father will discipline you, to sanctify you (Heb. 10)

E. Know that if you continue to resist the Holy Spirit in you it will lead to a hardened heart and deception, and if there’s no repentance God will justly reject you.

F. And you believe God would be perfectly just and right to condemn you if you continue to trample the Son of God under your feet.

And this is very common for them. They don’t have assurance of salvation.

They do say they believe in the grace of God, but there’s a catch to it, they are “under the law” so their conscience will always be tied to the Law, which condemns them, so they never have peace with God and blessed assurance by the Holy Spirit.

In my opinion government should be a fair balance between free private enterprise and a welfare safety net. What that balance is is open to endless debate. But business is the driving force which provides employment, generates wealth and tax revenue, which in turn funds welfare. So destroying business ultimately destroys welfare. Many seem to think the government is a money tree, but, really, they’re elected to responsibly allocate YOUR money into whatever is needed. If you pay taxes it’s your money and hard work which keeps the nation going.

I don’t believe a rebellious and unbelieving people can be forced to adhere to scriptural principles, rather, my post is more about Christians choosing the best option available to them presently for maintaining some sense of order and peace, for survival purposes.

Lockdowns are “supposed” to be about lightening the load on hospitals, not about magically making Covid disappear, because they don’t. It’s here to stay.

……..

On the subject of Foreknowledge and Election:

A. Truly God knew from the beginning everything that will happen, and every person who would be born, and everything they would ever think, say or do. (Which is incredible)

B. Therefore He certainly knew who would obey Him and who wouldn’t.

C. It makes sense to call or choose someone if you already know what their answer will be.

D. That man has been given a free will does not assume he doesn’t need Gods grace to come to God.

E. Certainly, God does not force people to sin or obey, that is, apart from their will.

F. Certainly, God did not create the human race as robots who are all just running on a pre-program, as that would make God the author of evil and a monster. That would mean God makes people sin.

G. And then, no one can take the credit for their faith, it is a gift.

H. So, it is beyond human comprehension how God can sovereignly guide a person to do His will without taking away that person’s free will, in the sense that He holds them accountable for their actions, and so both facts are true, but impossible for the human intellect to fully reconcile.

………

Replied to an SDA:

To get a proper understanding of what Paul meant in Romans regarding the law we need to study Galatians.

Sabbaths are fulfilled in Christ.

This is why there is no mention anywhere in the New Testament that gentile believers need to keep the Sabbath.

Not even once is it mentioned or alluded to.

Rather, the evidence is that the church met on the first day of the week to set itself as distinct from Judaism.

As to salvation, Ellen G. White made it very clear that Sunday church attendance means one has taken the Mark of the Beast and is thus lost.

This means that she did not believe that one is saved by grace through faith apart from the deeds of the law.

“But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets”

“Such evil. In what is being called an ambush attack, a man approached an LA County sheriff patrol car and opened fire on the two officers inside. Both were shot in the head and are hospitalized, fighting for their lives. One deputy is a 24 yr-old man and the other is a 31 yr-old woman with a 6 yr-old son.

But that’s not all.

The Bible says Jesus always existed with the Father, the Father sent Him into the world to be born as a Man with God as His Father, to live a sinless life, to declare the mighty love of God through compassionately healing and delivering those possessed by demons, by teaching the love of God as the fulfillment of God’s law, and by suffering, shedding His Blood and dying as THE ONE MAN FOR ALL MEN.

GOD BECAME A MAN TO BEAR THE PENALTY OF MAN.

He accomplished that completely and was dead for three days, then God raised Him to proclaim and confirm to the world that everything Jesus said and promised was true, and to make Him the supreme authority, King of Kings and Lord of Lords….. the only Savior.

Agreed in principle, but the devil is in the detail.

If for your institutional church to function you need to abide by laws and bylaws of a locality then what happens if the council turns against you and starts putting restrictions, such as statutes concerning numbers of people, fire and safety regulations, vehicle access regulations, or even non-discriminatory employment laws?

If you break these laws you will be penalised.

So, if you do the crime, you do the time, even if you don’t think it’s a crime, and it’s not a crime according to God’s word.

If it really comes down to it, and it’s necessary, Christians should stand together and say, Arrest us all.

Currently there are two basic political cults:

One that believes Trump is the Messiah.

And one that believes Trump is Satan.

Both distract from the REAL problems America faces.

My point is that focus on a personality always distracts from the real problems.

Here’s a thought.

What if Trump was an intellectual and a gentleman in every way, AND he represented the exact same policy stance that he does now – nothing at all was different except his quips and tweets?

For a start, its doubtful such a man would ever be able to get into office, not any more.

But if it did happen then the whole political discourse would change.

King David wrote:

“The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness,
The world and those who dwell therein.”

Psalm 24:1

Who owns the earth?

The One who made it, naturally enough.

He is the Landlord, we are the tenants.

And yet much more than a Landlord, He owns all the people He has made as well, and every living thing, including everything in the spirit world, even the devil.

The human race is His property. Everything you can see and imagine is His.

But before you get offended consider that He keeps you alive. He is the one.

If He took His hand off His creation it would die that moment – He is the giver and sustainer of life.

Then, what is freedom?

Considering the above facts, then, freedom must be something which only has meaning in relation to God.

Freedom. Something deep inside yearns for it, but we don’t even know what it is, really.

Every generation thought the earth belonged to them. Then they died and it belonged to someone else. Or, one day a bunch of men with swords turns up and says it belongs to them now.

Jesus Christ will return for what is His.

It’s His land. It’s His people.

He will require an account from every man of what he did with God’s property, how he treated it, and them.

He will require an account of what we did with His truth.

Why don’t Christians walk up to total strangers on the street and tell them, “I love you!” ?

We are supposed to love everyone, right, so how will they know unless we tell them?

Obviously, wrong, at every level.

Pretty wacko, right?

We’re obviously allowed to declare our love for someone we love.

But have you noticed Jesus never said to anyone, “I love you!” ?

By the modern mind that would mean He was inhibited and couldn’t really express what He felt.

But He didn’t need to tell people He loved them.

If they couldn’t understand by His life and actions that He loved them, then what would be the point of telling them?

And then it would become a trap. Some poor souls would say, “But Jesus didn’t tell me He loves me!! He told others but He didn’t tell me!!”

I’m not against saying, “I love you bro”.

(Better not to say it to a sister, especially these days)

I realize just mentioning this could put some into a tail spin.

ALL THAT MATTERS IS YOU BECOME A NEW CREATION

“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation.”

Galatians 6:15

You MUST be born again, Jesus said.

There are truly born again people who attend nearly every kind of church there is, of every denomination, and even some cults.

And there are born again people who don’t attend any church.

But they are all God’s property, not the property of an organization.

Scripture says it is God’s will and plan to bring all these, His children, to full maturity in Christ.

“….till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”

Ephesians 4:13-16

……..

Regarding Paul saying he was “chief of sinners” he was surely referring to his past and not present, for how could he continue to be sinning more than anyone else in the church? If he was still the greatest sinner in practice he would be a hypocrite to teach others.

He said he lived “in all good conscience till today”.

Another point, I agree that no believer is perfect and no believer can say they have no sin (as per 1 John 1) however let’s also consider there are two kinds of error here:

A. The guy who claims he has reached sinless perfection.

B. The guy who keeps “sinning” because his conscience is weak, and to him everything is a sin. He sees just normal humanness as grave and serious sin and is always beating himself up. He’s actually trapped in his own world because his conscience is weak, so he has a full time job dealing with his “sins”.

I think Paul summed it up for himself when he said “in my flesh dwells no good thing”.

And…

“But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.” 1 Corinthians 9:27

We can and should know and acknowledge what is lurking in our flesh, and mortify it by the Spirit, and live with a free conscience.

Do you remember Zac Poonens old teaching about always struggling with the flesh?

It was an imbalance, which produced a weak conscience, and thus became a vicious circle, a trap.

If you get grass roots news from various nations you understand that wickedness is increasing to unprecedented levels, just as Jesus foretold.

All false teaching prepares and conditions people to accept the antichrist when he comes, and all true teaching prepares people to meet Jesus when He comes. There is no neutrality. A people are being prepared to worship the antichrist, and a people are being prepared to reign for eternity with Jesus. These are the two spiritual streams today, it’s one or the other. In any church, one or the other is happening, but never both.

Exodus 20:7

You could say, Oh Bill! Oh Jack!! Oh Muhammad!! and you would not be blaspheming because those people are not God, so there is only one name which can be blasphemed and that is Jesus name, because He is both God and God’s Son.

So, blasphemy is part of the fallen sin nature, the nature of children of the devil (which we all once were) who do the works of their spiritual father, the devil, who is a blasphemer.

This explains why only Jesus name is used for blasphemy.

But as to why people want to blaspheme??

Perhaps part of it is it is a form of identification with the devil.
