Enough faith?

September 19, 2019

Most mature Christians know and have experienced often what it is to pray the prayer of faith (as James put it) and receive wonderful answers to prayer. These same people, then, if they make a request and God does not answer it (meaning, His answer is, No) are not crushed and they don’t despair that they don’t have enough faith, which is what the “word of faith” cult teaches.

 

To follow that line of thought leaves people a neurotic mess.

Has he repented?

September 19, 2019

On whether a popular preacher has truly repented, as he now claims, it’s simple, you simply check again after a few months and see if he is still doing the things he says he’s repented of, because repentance means you stop doing what is wrong and do what is right.

Worldly

September 19, 2019

 

“For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.”

 

1 John 2:16

 

Worldliness is described here as not only pride in possessions or position, or a desire for recognition, but a strong desire to have more than you need, and also to desire things unlawful before God.

Look at me!

Typically, the modem Christian doesn’t understand that attention seeking is not a trait of a true disciple of Christ. Perhaps they are simply copying the preachers they follow.

When bad turns out for good

September 19, 2019

 

 

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

 

Romans 8:28

 

“We know” ….. Paul was stating this is something he and the readers of his letter have experienced.

 

Paul suffered so much for preaching the good news, as well as a lot of personal hardship and disappointment.

 

A lot of bad things happened to Paul.

 

Yet his experience was that God caused it all to “work together for good” – for Paul’s good, and for the good of many others.

 

The good outcome was an ever increasing revelation and experience of Christ, and an ever increasing faith.

Revelation of Christ

September 18, 2019

We should pray for our unsaved friends they will be given a revelation of who the Lord Jesus Christ is, and for our saved friends, they will be given an ever increasing revelation of who He is.

 

And the same for ourselves.

Gimmicks

September 18, 2019

Every gimmick offered you in Christendom originated from a clown, and it’s a test to see if you’re an idiot.

Sorry to be so blunt.

I better put smilies to calm down the nervous. 😁😁😁.

Watch out

A superficial Christian life will always turn and bite you in the end.

What’s the problem?

If God is your Father, then, what’s your problem, really?

Deranged hypocrites

September 18, 2019

America, the same people searching for sexual misconduct in their opponents don’t have any sexual morality themselves, they believe any kind of perversion is normal.

 

There is a minority of folks in America who are not deranged hypocrites.

FYI

Did you know that later this month the Jewish Sanhedrin is planning an animal sacrifice on the Mount of Olives, and they’ve invited representatives from 70 nations?

Do you know where this is heading?

Saved

What does anything matter if you’re not saved?

Reality church

September 17, 2019

 

Commented on Facebook:

I agree with the issue that because house churches offer freedom for anyone to discuss scripture openly that this can often disintegrate into conflict unnecessarily.

 

Traditional church “solved” this annoying problem by simply not allowing open public discussion.

 

Just consider whether the authors or teachers whom you listen to actually function in real life in a setting where the scriptures are openly discussed, and disagreements are worked through in a respectful manner.

 

Perhaps not.

Acting like an enemy

September 17, 2019

In an old song Jesus is heard saying to a Christian, “….you’re acting like my enemy…”.

 

We are capable of doing things that make it look like we are His enemy more than His disciple.

Appearing soon

“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.”

 

2 Thessalonians 2:9-10

 

Benny Hinn just predicted Jesus will appear sooner than we think.

 

Now, what’s going to happen to the charismatic movement when the “lawless one” appears?

 

The text here implies he will have the greatest demonstration of miracles since Jesus walked the earth.

 

Will people, such as Benny, love the truth enough to reject the greatest miracle worker in 2000 years?

 

If you take supernatural power alone as “proof” that someone is from God, even though their teaching and life is not right, then you don’t love the truth, and the text here says all who don’t love the truth will be deceived, and they will worship the antichrist, and they will be thrown into the lake of fire.

A long time ago

September 16, 2019

A long time ago there was no universe, not even a single atom, because God had not created it yet.

 

But God was there.

 

But don’t fall into the trap of not believing this simply because you can’t figure out where God came from.

 

Because then you would miss out on everything.

 

And it would be very embarrassing on Judgment Day.

 

“So, just because you couldn’t figure out how I exist eternally you decided I don’t exist?”

Perspective

September 15, 2019

According to the Bible, the great people of this world will soon be nothing, gone, and forgotten forever.

 

And this is the proper Christian perspective of the world.

Make sense?

“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the strategies of the devil.”

 

Ephesians 6:11

 

Therefore, we take it that if one doesn’t put on the whole armor of God then he won’t be able to stand against the strategies of the devil.
