Today’s a “holy day”, so, time to get spiritual?

It encapsulates the whole problem with religion.

…..

“Racial division is driven by politicians”

…..

Obviously, neither Biden or Harris will show their faces at the southern border because even they can see the hypocrisy of showing up at an humanitarian crisis which they helped create.

You wouldn’t expect politicians to acknowledge the failure of a policy when it would be tantamount to acknowledging their stupidity or corruption.

…….

What do you think? Did He rise again? Or was it all a hoax?

You might say, It’s impossible for someone to rise from the dead!

Yes, of course it is.

But everything about Jesus life was “impossible”. That’s why people followed Him, because He did the impossible.

What do you do with that, if you witness the “impossible”?

What happens if the “impossible” happens to you?

……

Those who have the grace to live for Christ also have the grace to suffer or die for Him.

……

Possible reasons why a Christian doesn’t share God’s word:

  • They’re not interested
  • God’s word hasn’t deeply touched their heart, and is not living in them powerfully
  • They’re afraid they won’t be cool, that some may not like it
  • They fear rejection
  • They don’t care about others
  • They think it is for others to do, not them
  • They are not filled with the Holy Spirit

Etc. ……

……

The Bible says everything is God’s property. The Maker retains the ownership rights. The problem is most people can’t stand the idea, and they’ve been deceived into living independent of God.

……

The rioting and burning goes on in Portland, and the authorities have the power to put an end to it today, so, we assume, they are allowing it to continue for political purposes.

…..

2 Corinthians 15 records that Jesus resurrection was witnessed by over five hundred of His followers at one time. These people comprised the church in Israel at its inception. So, the church was not founded on just a few who claimed to have witnessed the resurrection, but on many hundreds of such witnesses. The nucleus of the church didn’t have to trust someone else’s testimony, they saw with their own eyes. On this basis the Christian faith sprung into life.

…….

The eternal Kingdom of Christ will be a very real society based on love. Love will permeate everything and everyone – every thought, every word and action – the perfect and Holy love of Christ.

…….

Our repentance doesn’t earn us salvation, and yet it’s one of the signs we are saved.

……

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”

(James 1:5)

Imagine a Christianity where no one was lacking wisdom? It would be amazing.

…….

The fear of Voter ID is the fear that each person will only be able to cast one ballot. Of course it is.

……

You can’t over estimate how important the resurrection of Christ is, especially when you consider no one else resurrected – every founder of religion or whatever died and didn’t resurrect, so they’re still dead.

……

In theory, if every person on earth followed Jesus Christ you would have a perfect world. Every social problem would be eliminated, and even religion would be obsolete.

…….

Republicans should focus on convincing more Christians to vote, and it will indeed be a landslide. It will be such an overwhelming majority as to cancel out election fraud. Stats show that a significant portion of evangelicals didn’t vote. Please pass this on to Don.

This subject gets a little over complicated unnecessarily.

During the course of a lifetime the average person suffers a variety of ailments, and they often get over them and get healed, by various means, and sometimes healed fast, and sometimes slow, but overall they can say the Lord kept them from dying before their time. The Lord may have used various means to preserve their life.

Important to know that the essence of true faith isn’t focused on our SELF.

Simply trusting God that all will be well is just as legitimate as the person who has the gift of faith to be instantly healed.

See…. what of a Christian who is obsessed with avoiding sickness, constantly making positive confessions, etc. Constantly trying to increase their faith so they won’t get sick.

They might be still obsessed with themselves, and not have genuine faith at all.

Sometimes an obsession with healing betrays fear.

How many in the “faith” movement are actually neurotic and its simply a way to calm their nerves?

……

In many ways, scripture defines faith and salvation in terms of repentance:

“God is not willing any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. “

……

One thing it means for God to be your Father is He takes care of you as His own child.

…….

What we see today is selective morality.

…….

“Christ demands first place. There’s no room on the throne of your heart for two gods.”

  • Billy Graham

……

The greatest caring is to care about someone’s soul.

……

When Christ is truly our goal, and our motivation to that end, then we never lose motivation in life.

……..

In Christ we see the greatest was also the most humble.

…….

If Christ is our life, then, all of our life, and all of our days, are His.

…….

We can’t stress how bad it would be for you to die without Christ. Jesus taught of conscious, eternal punishment – never ending suffering for those who die in their sins. Please take Jesus Christ seriously.

The sovereignty of God is surely not the property of John Calvin.

Simply put, it’s the belief that God has absolute authority over all creation, therefore, anything that does happen, happens only because He allowed it. It doesn’t necessarily mean He is the author of the event, but it is under His authority. He could stop or prevent it if He chose to.

The other alternative would be that events happen which God tried to prevent but failed to.

That God is in control of everything doesn’t mean He is the author of everything.

Sovereignty is a massive comfort for believers.

Continued….

Someone, then, invariably asks, If everything that happens is because God allows it, then that makes God responsible for the evil in this world by allowing it?

Answer:

Here it gets interesting, when a person has the audacity to start schooling God on what He should allow or not allow.

God allowed us all to sin.

Even as Christians we’ve all disobeyed God many times.

He allowed us to disobey.

What would it have been like if we tried to disobey but God overpowered us against our will and stopped us?

It would make us robots.

He gave us a free will to choose because, then, we are no longer programmed robots, but beings who can love Him through our choices, choosing what pleases Him.

A favorite quote from the film, Citizen Kane: “Making a lot of money is not hard to do if all you want to do is make a lot of money.”

What do you really want in this life?

If all you really wanted was a lot of money then you would have no life. This desire would destroy you as a human being. You would be a shell of a person.

Like a TV evangelist. And like so many who hate TV evangelists. They’re more buddies than they realize.

Decades fly by.

What would be the point of talking to God if He didn’t talk back?

A disciple is always happy doing the Lord’s work because they’re a disciple – that’s what they are now.

Normally, when people look to the future and think about what the rest of their life will be like they’re looking at 40, 20, 10 or less years – that’s the limit, and whatever their life is going to be is confined to this brief timeframe. Of course, they may only have days to live and not know it.

But when a Christian looks forward they see eternity. They see themselves living forever. It is just as real as this present life.

……

The crucifixion was as barbaric as anything can be barbaric.

We are supposed to view our own sins through that lens of the Cross, and understand how barbaric and God hating WE are, and receive His amazing grace, paid in full on that Cross.

……

A Liberal says, What’s wrong with doing something if you’re not hurting anyone else?

Two reasons, one, you’re destroying yourself, and that’s wrong because God gave you life, and you have no right to destroy what He created, and, two, you are spitting in the face of Jesus Christ, and counting His sacrifice for your sins on the Cross as a worthless sacrifice.

The Bible says God’s message to the world is about a Man, bloodied and bruised, and nailed to a cross.

Have you understood the Message yet?

…..

We owe our existence to God.

Are you happy He decided that human beings should exist?

It was His idea.

……

Where is the presence of God?

Inside the true disciple of Jesus Christ.

This is the Gospel.

……

The idea that only people of a certain skin color are racist, is, itself, a racist idea.

It seems everyone and everything is racist now, except for those who push this ideology. So, you must become one of them, because you wouldn’t want to be a racist, now, would you?

When a white man commits a crime they make sure you know he was white, because his color is an issue, but when a black man does the same thing, his color is not mentioned because his color is not an issue. Can you see a particular ideological narrative being pushed here? You might say you’re not “religious” but unaware you’ve been conditioned into accepting a false ideological narrative.

I believe “hate crimes” don’t exist. An equitable judiciary would only see “crime”, not “hate crimes”. Whether a person had hate is irrelevant if they have committed a crime. And skin color never needs to be mentioned. Not too long ago, when people had more intelligence, race, color or religion had virtually no place in the reporting and treatment of crime.

……

Israel is the only nation whose historical existence is punctuated again and again by supernatural events. The truth is better than fiction.

One of the reasons Israel is hated so much is because it is the most visible reminder that the Bible is true. And, that the Bible is true is the scariest thing for modern man to contemplate.

…….

This planet is teeming with life, but every living thing dies. Jesus announced there will be a new earth for His followers where nothing ever dies. Death will be unknown.

It was His death which destroyed death, and His resurrection which gives eternal life.

……

If you had been there to watch Jesus heal the blind, the cripples, and raise the dead, would you also have become one of His disciples?

…..

The Incarnation denotes the preexistence of Christ, and also that it was irreversible, and not a temporary state.

……

Easter.

Not just any man suffering horrific cruelty at the hands of man, but God in the flesh hanging on a Cross. Now, why would God incarnate end up on a Cross? Why would the Father be willing to sacrifice His Son? Why would the Son be willing to be sacrificed? What for? Trying to prove something? Or was God making a transaction within Himself?

Everything we NEED to know about God is contained in the answers to these questions.

And everything we need to know about religion is answered by these answers.

……

An idol worshiper is simply one who worships anything other than God, and the worst kind of idol worshiper is the one who claims to be a Christian.

May you be enriched in the knowledge of Christ today.

Do satanists know they’re backing a loser?

……

Our pride is not worth defending. Defend something worthwhile.

……

Christian, the Holy Spirit wants to guide your every step.

……..

A Christian prayer:

“Lord Jesus, thank you for washing away my sins in your own blood! Without you washing away my sins I could never have come to God, I would have remained unclean, guilty and defiled, cut off from your goodness and love, and deserving your punishment. But you had mercy on me. Thank you for changing me from a rebel to a son. Thank you for giving me eternal life.”

……

(Eph. 6:10-20)

Verse 12 says the spiritual “rulers of the darkness of this age” are fighting against true Christians.

They rule everyone who doesn’t know Christ. They used to rule us, but Christ set us free and He now rules in our hearts. But they desperately try to bring us again under their power so that we do what they say and disobey the Lord.

What a great victory Christ has wrought for us! We must “be strong in the Lord and the power of His might” by heeding the truth here.

A man is only wise to the extent that he heeds God’s word.

…..

The meaning of Easter? Can you define what it’s supposed to mean?

That Jesus Christ was crucified for the sins of the whole world, and was raised from the dead on the third day, so He can be the Justifier of all who believe on Him.

See Romans 3:23-26

Now, skin color alone decides which murders are important, making the Left wing narrative more racist than any other narrative.

“And the LORD sent against him raiding bands of Chaldeans, bands of Syrians, bands of Moabites, and bands of the people of Ammon; He sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the LORD which He had spoken by His servants the prophets.”

This present world will end soon, and it won’t end well, according to the Bible:

“Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.” (Rev. 1:7)

……

The Passover Lamb

“But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.”

(Hebrews 10:12-14)

When you’ve seen pictures of Jesus hanging on the cross you might not have seen it in these terms, of a Man offering Himself as a sacrifice for my sins and yours.

Only one offering, one time, it can never be repeated.

…….

Anyone without a Savior is not saved. And those with a Savior are saved.

……

Christian, if you want to know whether all is well, ask yourself, Do I trust Him? If the answer is, Yes, then all is well.

Three aspects of practical love which non-Christians should experience when they encounter Christians:

  • Kindness
  • Patience
  • Generosity

……

“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.

Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.”

(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

However hard the very last days are going to be there’s going to be a significant number of disciples of Jesus who survive and remain to be caught up into the sky to meet the Lord Jesus.

How will they survive?

The Lord will keep them, protect them, and provide for them.

And yet many will also be martyred, as so many have been, and are presently, suffering martyrdom.

If we survive until the day the Lord physically returns, we will join these martyrs, together with them, to “meet the Lord in the air”.

…….

Maybe the Father has a list of those, His children, who actually still talk to Him?

…….

In Christ, we are called to love someone who loves us immensely.

……

If God is silent to you, did you get the message?

…….

An atheist says, if God is in control then it means He is responsible for all the evil in the world.

No.

God doesn’t physically prevent you doing whatever you like. If He did then you would not be serving Him because you love Him, but because you’re forced to.

But, at His discretion, He could end your life and send you for judgment at any hour of the day.

So, He’s definitely in control.

But He’s not responsible for the sins we commit. We are.

……

The Lords Supper

Taking the meal “in an unworthy manner” (1 Cor. 11:27) would surely also include taking it while knowingly living in a state of hypocrisy: feigning respect, when deep inside we have our heart still set on sin.

……

More scary than anything happening in the world is the lack of thinking among Christians.

……

Life without God is an entirely meaningless existence. You are just a highly evolved animal, by chance, by accident, and not by any purpose, design, reason or meaning other than the ones you create in your mind, and then you die, cease to exist, and are forgotten forever, as if you never existed.

“…earnestly contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.” (Jude 3b)

A contender fights to keep what is his and what belongs to others. A contender of the faith fights against corruptions of the faith.

The faith was once delivered. There were no further installments.

Pray for your family in Myanmar

Letter from Myanmar:

“First of all I want to beg you to pray for our safety and protection. I pray that the angel of the Lord will continue to surround every home in our country.
The military has taken control and is killing civilians. Every day we needed to collect dead bodies on the road with tears and pains. Banks are being shut down, and it isn’t easy to get online.
It breaks my heart so much. Everywhere is filled with smoke and fire as factories are burned and destroyed. Thousands of people don’t have work, food, and a place to stay now.
Almost all of our church members ran back to their village. There is neither market nor a shop where we can buy food because every road is blocked now. How long will we last if it continues like this!?
Just a while ago, the soldiers’ truck came and stopped near our house. We were terrified; they captured six people who were having tea in the shop. We don’t know what they will do to them. God is my only Hope….”

Studying the Laodicean church in Revelation 3.

You know, the average Christian today has far more material wealth and luxury than the rich Christians whom Christ addressed in Laodicea.

…..

“Now when this epistle is read among you, see that it is read also in the church of the Laodiceans, and that you likewise read the epistle from Laodicea. And say to Archippus, “Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it.” “

(Col. 4:16-17)

Archippus is assumed to be the prominent elder in the church of Laodicea. We see in Rev. 3 that Laodicea became lukewarm and in danger of being cast off by the Lord. Paul is writing to Collosae, which was a neighbouring city to Laodicea, perhaps twenty years prior. Archippus needs to fulfill his ministry in Laodicea. If he doesn’t, then the church there could be lacking. Perhaps he didn’t fulfill his ministry there, and the church became lukewarm? No one knows. But it seems likely.

We must fulfill our ministry. You must fulfill your ministry.

There has to be fulfillment. Not in part, not an unfinished work.

If you say you don’t have a ministry, what you mean is you don’t serve the Lord Jesus Christ, but your own interests.

Today, a “ministry” is usually a business, which is not a Biblical ministry to begin with.

How can a Christian support evil things?

Just check how the things you support stand before the Judgment Throne of Christ.

They were not outwardly immoral, they were lukewarm.

They put a lot of stock in material things, and their social status.

It’s like, If only they were as enthusiastic for Jesus and the extension of His Kingdom as they were for the good things in life.

The Lord Jesus doesn’t comfort them here with knowledge of His sovereignty or providence. He gives them an ultimatum. Many today would resent such an ultimatum. The Pharisees also rejected Jesus’ ultimatum by replying that they are God’s chosen, so no such threats apply to them.

Our human tendency is to think we are more special than anyone else. Some may read Jesus’ stern warning to the Laodiceans and think, That would never apply to me! No chance Jesus would ever spew me out of His mouth! I’m His special, chosen one!

Well, so were they.

The unrighteous do, though. They don’t like to be caught off guard. They need time to prepare an evasive answer.

While Jesus is the healer, some of this teaching has problems in its assumptions. “On earth as it is in heaven” , if used as suggested here, would mean no one dies, because no one dies in heaven. No one gets tired or weary in heaven, either.

So does that mean that when you die, or get tired, or get sick, that you are out of the will of God and don’t have enough faith?

How many people have been turned away from the Lord because they were told the reason they are not healed is because they don’t have enough faith? And they are out of God’s will?

Regarding an individual knowing whether it is God’s will to heal them: it is a very personal matter. If the individual desires to be healed and decides to trust God, unconditionally, that is, their faith is not dependent on whether they get healed or not, then it’s between them and God, and all true believers will stand with them.

One of the assumptions the article made was that Christians must be convinced that it is always God’s will to heal, every time, in every situation, otherwise, if they don’t believe this, then they will be double minded as to whether it is God’s will to heal them.

This is a faulty assumption.

Generally, yes, God wants to heal.

Generally, yes, a believer can be confident God wants them well to serve Him.

Generally, God is not in the business of making everyone sick.

Yet we can’t make a rule which we don’t see in scripture.

To know His specific will personally, on some things, we are going to have to know Him personally.

A simplistic formula will not suffice.

And we don’t need a simplistic formula in order to have faith and avoid double mindedness.

There are sometimes unpleasant things in life which are God’s permissive will.

Being martyred for your faith could be God’s will for you, but not for someone else.

God doesn’t kill His people. And yet sometimes it’s His will that we be killed for our faith.

It’s not the same will for everyone.

And this understanding is where true faith or trust rests.

A lot of the American stuff is simply an extension of a neurotic mind.

If such people are faced with the reality that God may have a purpose for them to suffer, they can’t countenance that.

They have opted for the Prosperity Gospel to avoid facing reality.

If you could know God’s will through a simplistic formula then you wouldn’t need to know Him. The formula would replace knowing Him.

Though all creation defies the theory of evolution, the human mind and psyche, in particular, defies it the most. As amazing as all the organs and systems in our bodies are, the brain is on another level altogether. Yes, it’s just a piece of jelly-like meat, but there’s a world within a world inside that clump of tissue, because the physical world is simply that, but the brain goes beyond the physical. The human mind is far more than physical.

Muscles are physical. Organs are physical. But a purely physical brain would not work.

I want you to think about your thought life, and how you control it. Particularly, your desires in life. Is your brain telling you what to do, or are you telling it what to do? Does the brain control it’s own function, or is there something higher up the order than the brain which controls desires, plans, creates, dreams, aspires, or… loves?

Is love merely a set of electrical or hormonal transmissions within the brain?

Who controls what you think and speak?

Is there some hidden recess in my brain that’s firing up right now, shooting electrical connections, chemical reactions, and thus compelling me to write this down or think about this subject?

And is this subject simply some kind of neurological data code somehow imprinted deep inside that piece of meat?

Christians believe man has a spirit, and this life force or inner being rules his brain insomuch that the brain is an instrument of man’s spirit. Man’s spirit controls his mind, like software, and his brain carries out the functions, like hardware.

This seems self evident by the ability we have to contemplate how our own mind works in a self-aware way.

How can an object step outside of itself to view itself?

And only we humans are self-aware. That is, only we can look into ourselves and analyze, understand and appreciate ourselves.

How could a mere clump of tissue and cells analyze it’s own motives, and why it does what it does?

He knows what they mean in their heart.

When we sign a binding contract we are not necessarily becoming a slave to a master.

If I agree to obey the laws of the land it doesn’t necessarily mean the government is now my master, because the law of the land will apply to me whether I agree or like it, or not.

I’ve seen Americans going to both extremes.

Legally, I can’t see what the point is of pledging allegiance to a government or even to Christ because, legally, a pledge means nothing, because people will be subject to the authority whether they pledge or not.

So, a Christian has a new nature and an old nature living side by side, and warring with each other.

The old nature is self or the flesh, which is to be denied.

He heard how King Solomon asked God for wisdom and then became the wisest man on earth. So, he said that he thought he would ask God the same thing, because that’s what he badly needed. Straight away there was a change, in that he became interested in the subjects he was studying, and rather than just memorize answers, he wanted to understand the principles behind it, and how and why it is that way. Gradually he began to excel, and some time later he became a Christian, and he went on to be a Doctor, and now, years later, has been greatly used by God in the medical field.

Read what Jesus taught about life after death.

……

On the question of, What were the “signs of an Apostle”? (2 Cor. 12:12) That is, how did the miraculous in Apostles differ from the miraculous in non Apostles?

I would offer a partial explanation like this:

Jesus taught that God will answer the prayers of anyone as far as that prayer reflects the specific will of God.

Theoretically, then, and there’s no reason to believe otherwise, that any believer could pray for even the greatest and most fantastic miracles and recieve them if it is God’s will and if they have faith.

The NT says God confirmed the message of the Apostles with signs following.

There is only one message.

And God has already confirmed it.

There is no new message, therefore there’s no message which needs confirming today.

The true Gospel is already confirmed by God.

However, the NT also describes another function of signs and wonders:

“For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ has not accomplished through me, in word and deed, to make the Gentiles obedient — in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem and round about to Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.” (Rom. 15:18-19)

So here we see God convincing people of Himself through the miraculous. It’s something more than just validating the Apostles, it is God convincing people about God’s power and reality.

So we see in scripture that God sometimes uses the miraculous to convince or awaken people, and also the devil uses the same method to convince people to follow false prophets.

Anecdotally, millions have come to Christ through supernatural encounters or healings.

Millions also have come to Him without the miraculous, and yet their conversion was just as miraculous.

But back to the question.

The original Apostles had something more than the common spiritual operation of praying for the sick and seeing God heal them.

The difference is authority.

In Jesus ministry He didn’t pray for the sick.

He usually gave them a command.

And as they obeyed Him they were healed.

Now, you can try that out, and go around telling people in wheel chairs to stand up and walk, but I don’t think you’ll get far if you don’t have the authority from God to do it.

But you can pray and God can answer.

…….

Traditionally, weren’t Liberals supposed to support free speech?

The only proof faith needs is that which God has spoken. His word is proof enough. He keeps His word.

……

The main thing which makes Jesus different from all the rest is that He is God.

…..

Here are some profound truths of scripture which the human mind can’t fully comprehend:

  • The love of Christ.
  • Eternity.
  • The power of God.
  • The fact that God foreknows, predestines, and yet holds man fully responsible for rejecting Christ.
  • The oneness, indivisibility, and yet the plurality of persons within God.
  • The fact that God is love, and yet He will punish forever those who reject Him.

A dear bro got sidewinded by this faulty logic: He saw in scripture that Jesus said a man cannot serve two masters. Therefore, he reasoned that if he votes then it means he has made the government his master, and therefore Christ is no longer his master. He thinks it means choosing a king other than Jesus to rule over him.

The faulty assumption here is that if one is subject to a human government, then that government rules over them in the place of Christ.

Then, if one obeys or supports a government then that government is their master.

In practical terms, then, if you obeyed the traffic rules it would mean you have obeyed the government, and therefore the government rules over you, and if the government is then your master, then Christ is not your master.

That is the logic.

Ironically, to believe such lies brings a person under the power of the devil, under another master, the very thing they are supposedly opposing.

The current push by Biden and the Dems and other western nations is essentially a moralistic one, by them redefining Biblical morality, and then making it a crime to believe certain things they promote as moral are immoral.

For a professing Christian who lives in a perpetual state of depression, discouragement and disappointment.

You ask him, Tell me the cause of your perpetual depression?

He cites how people have let him down, abused and hurt him.

Then you tell him, Because you have not unconditionally forgiven these people it means you are living in a state of bearing unforgiveness, which is a grave sin with God, because Jesus said if we don’t forgive, we won’t be forgiven. Therefore, the depression you are experiencing is God’s discipline on you for not forgiving them.

……

“Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.”

(1 Peter 4:19)

He’s a benevolent Creator, and not a malevolent one.

What’s implied is, if God went to the trouble of creating you, He is surely going to take the trouble of looking after you, having created you in the first place.

When suffering is according to His will then we are to commit our soul into His keeping, believing He is faithful to keep us and carry us through it, because He made us, and if He has a purpose for us to suffer at times He has a good reason for it, of which we are to trust Him in it.

……

The Bible says there are, and have been, many antichrists, and yet there is a final antichrist yet to come.

It also says the spirit of antichrist is operating in the world, and has been all along.

Now, why would the devil want people to believe the antichrist is the antichrist? He wouldn’t want to blow his cover.

The antichrist won’t be announcing himself as the antichrist.

He won’t be saying, ‘Look, here I am, I’m the devil incarnate’.

So, obviously, the people who embrace the coming antichrist won’t think of him as the antichrist, but rather, the christ.

So, the false doctrine of preterism conditions people to accept the antichrist as the christ, because people will think the Book of Revelation was fulfilled 1900 years ago.

Therefore, we would be justified to think that preterism is a tool of the spirit of antichrist, and just one way the devil is preparing the world to accept him as the leader of the world.

a. Why “shut the door”? Because it’s a holy, exclusive transaction: you, alone with God, and no one, not even your spouse, is privy to it. Pray with your spouse, or with the bros and sisters AFTER you have had your exclusive, holy time before the Throne of Grace.

b. “Shut the door” is not limited to shutting people out of that holy place but shutting the door on everything which is competing with God for your time and affections. Shut the door on whatever you need to, so you are not distracted by it when you come into this, the most holy transaction you could ever do.

c. The Father “sees”. Scripture says God’s ear is open to the righteous, not the unrepentant. The unrepentant are wasting their breath praying to God.

d. The answers to your prayers will be out in the open, for all to see.

e. It obviously doesn’t have to be a room. Jesus rarely prayed in a room, we note. The point is He went alone to pray to where He wouldn’t be distracted by people.

Prayer for Mr Trump

February 17, 2021

Advice to Donald Trump.

I’m praying that your life will reflect your confessed Christian faith, as we pray the same for ourselves and for all Christians.

I’m praying God will teach you where you have been wrong, and misrepresented Him, and you will have the grace to confess it publicly in true humility.

I’m praying you will understand WHY you didn’t win with a landslide.

I’m praying God give you wisdom as to what He wants you to do.

I’m praying you will have a common wisdom as to how your actions or demeanor is percieved by the mainstream. For example, it’s good to show what you believe. Get out and spend time with minorities, with the poor, with the disenfranchised, and those who don’t understand you.

I’m praying God give you a clarity and wisdom to articulate the Christian stance on all the issues facing society. Christians who vote for you expect this.

I’m praying you can communicate the Biblical principles which protect the genuine rights of all people, even the rights of unbelievers or atheists, or the blatantly immoral.

I’m praying you won’t take the bait any more and return insult for insult. That you will know when to speak and when to ignore.

Ignore ignorant people. Don’t lower yourself to their level.

I’m praying you will have the wisdom to know which of your spiritual advisors are gold diggers, and which are genuine.

Let’s pray.

……

“Life” was God’s idea, and not a freak evolutionary accident.

……

Sink or swim.

Swim is to believe Jesus.

There’s our options.

……

The “love factor” is the main factor in Christian growth and maturity, as outlined in 1 John and 1 Corinthians 13.

Only the person set free from sin’s power is the truly free person.

You would never want to try and be popular with a “Laodicean Church”. (See Rev. 3)

In Christian marriage, be the kind of husband or wife God wants and expects you to be, without exception, unconditionally, whatever happens.

……

Even if you somehow did manage to be happy without God, that “happiness” would abruptly end the moment after you die.

……

When you see the news you’re seeing the ugly consequences of people rejecting God.

…….

Courage only means something when we have to face our fears. Only faith can form courage.

……

A believer, by abstaining from sin, is not staying saved by continually earning his position or right to stand before God, as in gaining credit points for abstaining, or, either, demerit points for commission of sin.

Not sinning is not “works”. By not sinning one is not performing “works”.

Last night when you slept you probably didn’t sin, but you didn’t earn anything for that.

It’s not like you’re continually putting dimes in the parking meter so you can keep your parking place and not be moved on.

Or keeping up the rent to avoid eviction.

But if one willfully goes on in sin Jesus said the Father will cut them out of the Vine and cast them away. We assume, then, such a person has come to a place where they no longer abide in the Vine, and God simply requites them according to that choice they made.

“Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”

“If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.”

(John 15:2,6)

Praying for President Trump and God’s sovereign will be done as to his future, and for the future of God’s people in America.

Not expecting justice, it’s way past that being a realistic expectation, but believing His sovereign will and purpose be done anyway.

Study every person in the Bible who was specifically blessed by God.

God never changes.

…….

When someone calls for unity, but it means conforming to their unreasonable demands or beliefs, then, no thanks.

…….

One of the more profound questions in life:

What are you looking for?

Or, whom are you looking for?

Or, what are you searching for?

Jesus asked people that several times.

He asked them, when they went out to see John the Baptist, what they were expecting to see? or, what they were looking for?

……

“Follow the science”….

…unless you happen to consult your horoscope, practice yoga, believe in the power of crystals, tarot, yin and yang, ….the list goes on…

……

When we believe that God has given us access to Himself through His Son, Jesus Christ, an access paid for in His Blood, then we use that access with great joy and wonder in the fact that now we have access to the Throne of God.

And what a scenario when someone has been given access to God but doesn’t use it!

……

Have you ever noticed, as a scientific principle, that things don’t make themselves? Especially, out of nothing?

……

Conservative voices can be a good influence, but they can’t make the world right.

……

Is every one else’s life as precious to us as our own life?

……

To Christians who only share Memes: we want to hear what the Lord is teaching you. I usually don’t bother to read the Memes any more. If you share from your heart, I’m interested.

You’ll encounter very vicious people, but you’ve gotta be stronger than them, always taking the moral high ground, not repaying evil for evil, but feeling sorry for them.

Interesting to note, that, even considering the immensity of God’s power, the greatest thing about Him is His love.

……

Jesus Christ rules as absolute and sovereign Ruler, and His subjects love Him, and agree with Him completely, and none have any complaints with His rule. A totally unique Kingdom.

……..

Greatest “existential threat”?

Jesus Christ. Top of the list.

…….

With Jesus Christ there is always hope. It doesn’t matter who you are.

…….

It always seems that where there’s permanent misery, as in, a permanent state of it, there’s no revelation of Christ.

……..

God is the reality which defines reality.

…….

Are you a candidate for God’s mercy?

Why not?

You can be, because Jesus Christ died for you.

….

Is it Judgment Day “proof”? If not, leave it alone.

……

Liberal “Christian”, do we need to check with you to find out what is a sin and what isn’t?

My liberal friend on Twitter is always putting people straight as to what things are not sins…

If you have any doubts about whether there is sin in your life you can check with her…..

……

Tares don’t become wheat.

Goats don’t become sheep.

Bad soil doesn’t become good soil.

And yet the warnings to the sheep are still there.

Unless those warnings only apply to goats.

God works…

“…according to the power that works in us…”

Ephesians 3:20b

But people are seeking God’s power any place they think they can.

Why?

God’s power is not working in them.

……

Joy is such an appropriate response to God.

……

Jesus Christ!

What a subject!

……

As we thank God for the food we eat let’s remember He designed and created it….

….for us.

……

The true prophetic today is where God the Holy Spirit is bringing forth God’s word and revealing it to men.

If the true Holy Spirit is at work, yes, it will be prophetic.

The only way for the true prophetic to cease is to take away the Holy Spirit.

……

God doesn’t compare you with anyone else, so why should you?

……

Why did none of the great ancient civilizations survive?

Sin is like terminal cancer.

And the patient didn’t survive.

Are you partly responsible for this?
