Giving God our time is a primary way we honor Him.

And no one can say they have no time to give Him.

……

Billions of people have lived on this planet, and each had their turn to live for their Creator, and now it’s your turn, and your opportunity.

……

Peace on earth does not come prior to Jesus physical and bodily return to judge the world. To believe otherwise is to open oneself to the great delusion of false peace which will accompany the Antichrist.

…….

Jesus never ever received an unrepentant sinner. The preaching that He does receive them is one of the great deceptions of our time.

……

With God, having understanding or knowing does not mean full comprehension. We should know what God expects us to know. A disciple is not on a mission to know and understand everything about God, but rather, what God wants him to know.

…….

All is well with Christ Jesus.

And if you get with Him then all will be well with your soul.

……

Grace can’t be improved upon or added to, it can only be received, responded to, and applied, or rejected.

……

How much do your prayers mean to you?

How much do they mean to God your Father?

……

God doesn’t judge unrepentant sinners because He hates them or is vindictive but because He is true to His word, and just and holy.

…..

If you try to illegally slip through immigration you’re a felon, but if you can skip across the border somewhere you’re a “migrant”.

…….

Everything is providential AND for everything man does he is responsible to God.

Some find in providence a refuge from responsibility: it’s all up to God and not up to them.

And others lean too much on responsibility and can’t see God’s providence: it’s all up to them and not up to God.

……

Jesus died for you. Now, how could you think this is not enough and He should have done more?

Jesus died so you can live.

……

You’d be amazed how much stuff is going to be cancelled once Jesus comes back.

…….

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?

So, we see the real issue today is not so much free speech for all, but that only a select group in society is allowed freedom of speech.

The Left is allowed all the hate speech and violence its heart desires, but let a Conservative cross the line and…. Cancel him!

Thugs will become the moral police.

Looking at the current situation in western society, there is a puppet master and plenty of puppets.

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. You could call it a new religion, because it is built on pushing a particular view of morality, and demonizing anyone who disagrees.

……

A sad human is one who is only interested in trivial things.

…….

If someone doesn’t receive your friendship it’s their loss, not yours.

……

Jesus is both the source and the object of our joy.

Quote

“When we are at the point of erasing the genders of little children, we have also erased our common sense, our common humanity, and common future.”

……

Reassigning the gender of a plastic potato.

Explain how the “Mr” in Mr Potato Head offends you, and did you vote for Joe Biden by any chance?

……

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.

……

Open the Bible to anywhere and it’s the same God today – there’s only one God, and He never changes.

…..

God is the source of every good thing in us, and we are fully responsible fdor our actions.

…….

Have you been fully convinced by God as to how, and to what extent, you have broken God’s laws? If so, then you are in a position to understand the grace of God in Christ Jesus.

……

Many people are offended by Christian beliefs and values but not by sicko stuff.

They want to censor the wrong things.

…..

You live all your life trying to please people, then in the end they’re all gone and you’re standing alone before God.

…….

With true Christians, Jesus rules their life.

……

The Holy Spirit causes a disciple to experience God spiritually because He is God and He lives in them.

……

To have the true Holy Spirit is to live a supernatural life, for He is supernatural.

The love of Christ is the greatest fact.

…..

The prayer closet isn’t a stepping stone to somewhere, it is the destination.

…..

Watching the great falling away or apostasy unfold would be discouraging if you didn’t recognize it as a sign of the Lord’s soon return.

……

Discouragement or disappointment does force us to come to terms with whom it is we serve and whether we live to serve the Lord.

Fellowship with God is serving God, from a Biblical definition of “serve”.

It is impossible to fellowship with God and not serve Him.

The way we are created we serve something or someone, even if it is simply ourselves whom we serve.

……

The one who has genuine faith in Jesus can’t remain discouraged indefinitely because that would indicate they don’t really have faith in Him.

……

We understand God’s word to the degree that we obey it.

…..

I think thinking has become highly underrated. For many, their first steps toward God need to be that they actually begin thinking about things.

…..

Repentance

a. does not cause God to begin loving you

b. means you are no longer under His wrath

And if you are unrepentant the love of God has no relevance to you for you are still under His wrath.

……

Don’t be quick to swallow any narrative, think long and hard about it first.

Any preacher who expects people to give them money is a con man. And if you listen to them you’re also complicit with them.

……

Have you given much thought to how patient God has been with you and I? He would have had good reason to wipe us off the face of the earth and out of His sight, but He didn’t.

……

When we look into the Bible we see God as He really is, and we see ourselves as we really are.

…….

With good friends you’ve known over the years, you have a certain degree of faith in them as people, and in good faith you relate to them from what you’ve come to understand of their character.

Now, from what you know about Jesus Christ, how much faith do you have in Him?

……

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.

It is a witness by God, and this witness is inside us who truly believe.

We are not believing a self witness, but the witness of none other than God, Himself.

The Cross: it’s not about a symbol, it’s about a horrific, bloody transaction God made within Himself to reconcile you and I to Him.

We need to lead a righteous life as defined by God, and not by ourselves or others.

……

“But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”

(Matthew 6:6)

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.

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.”

If a person is pure, holy and true, having the true love of Christ, possessing the Spirit of Christ, full of faith in Christ, fearlessly proclaiming Jesus, then they have a heavenly beauty which far surpasses any mere external, superficial beauty.

…….

Christian, if you have spiritual life in you, then that life could not have originated with you, because you were previously spiritually dead in your sins. Before, you were dead, you had no life.

So, where does the new life you enjoy come from?

You have life from above, the life of Christ, it’s no longer you that live but Christ who lives in you.

You don’t just possess a commodity called “life”, you possess the Author of life, the One who is the way, the truth and the life.

The Holy Spirit is sent from Heaven (1Peter 1:12) and He will take you back to where He came from.

In the meantime, the One in you is from Heaven, revealing the things of God through the lens of God’s holy word.

So don’t try to live two lives: one with the Holy Spirit, and another, by yourself.

He, and the life He gives, are inseparable.

“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” (Rom. 8:2)

Answer. If they don’t believe every verse of the Bible then they’re not a Christian.

All true Christians believe the whole Bible. If you open to any verse, they believe that verse. They might have slightly different interpretations, but they believe it.

So, all true Christians agree on that level, and are not divided.

The present Left wing political persecution of Christians for their beliefs:

It has come to the point, where, if one holds Biblical moral values then one is falsely accused of infringing on the rights of those who hold different views.

If you turn on TV and you hear something against your beliefs, is that program infringing upon your beliefs?

Of course not.

If we share our beliefs and someone accuses us of infringing upon their beliefs then they’re unhinged.

What gives you the right to infringe upon the rights of others?

How is this justified?

Do you claim a divine right to do it?

Or is it the person with the biggest mouth or stick, or cleverest argument, who prevails over the rights of others?

When a Christian family prays together, and over a number of years God answers their prayers, then they aren’t your ordinary family.

In a Christian family, as you pray together, and as the kids grow up, they see God answer so many prayers, so they’re raised with an awareness of how real God is.

d. No, it doesn’t mean I’m surprised by what’s happening.

A relational church only exists by the set of relationships it comprises.

As people’s hearts grow colder and more selfish, then real and deep friendships disappear, and the Biblical pattern of church disappears with it, replaced by a non-relational system.

In a New Testament patterned church every person has an opportunity to speak.

No one can say they had a word from the Lord but they weren’t allowed to share it.

“And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”

1 John 5:11-12

Eternal life is not an independent possession one possesses independent of God. It’s not a “substance” which exists apart from God. It’s not a commodity God gives.

It is RELATIONAL.

The relationship is eternal life.

And, we, as a new creation in Christ, are not independent of God: our being totally derives from being IN Christ.

If we left Christ, and He left us, we would no longer be a new creation. In fact, we would be worse off than if we never knew the Lord.

When God gives us eternal life, this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life.

Therefore, if a person then rejects the Son they no longer have eternal life. If they reject the Son, they reject eternal life.

“At the town hall, aired on ABC on Oct. 15, Pennsylvania voter Mieke Haeck asked Biden how he would reverse actions by the Trump administration that had negatively affected LGBTQ people, including her 8-year-old transgender daughter.

Biden responded, “I will flat out just change the law. Every — eliminate those executive orders, number one.”

He added, “The idea that an 8-year-old child or a 10-year-old child decides, ‘You know I decided I want to be transgender. That’s what I think I’d like to be. It would make my life a lot easier.’ There should be zero discrimination.” ” unquote

In other words, Biden wants 8 year olds to be able to decide whether they have their genitalia rearranged.

Now, the wording of this quote by Biden was slightly altered by someone, and that meme went viral, and Facebook marked it as Misinformation.

But you can read what he said.

I won’t vilify Biden, only to say it’s horrific someone with such views is the President.

“While they (false teachers) promise them liberty (or freedom) they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage.” (2 Peter 2:19)

False teachers redefine certain sins. Sexual immorality may not be sin to them. The love of money may not be sin to them. (And it might be YOUR money which they love) Pride and elitism may not be sin to them.

So, the false teacher offers you “freedom” from the “bondage” of believing these things are sin, when, in reality, it’s a trap.

Whoever sins is a slave of sin, scripture says.

Just calling it “freedom” doesn’t change what it is.

That’s a delusion.

The “Food Gospel”?

January 31, 2021

Study of Acts chapter 10.

a. In a vision God shows Peter that he can now eat any kind of animal because God has “cleansed” them.

b. Peter is reluctant to believe the vision because it appears to contradict the Old Testament law.

c. God repeats the vision 3 times.

d. Peter understands God is referring to food, but he doesn’t immediately understand the implications of God “cleansing” all food.

e. Peter thought deeply as to what the vision could mean.

f. The vision is not metaphorical, it is literal. Peter, a Jew, may now lawfully eat anything because God has “cleansed” it.

g. Food, in itself, is not intrinsically good or evil. However, when God forbade certain foods, to then partake of those foods would mean disobeying God, and hence becoming defiled or unclean in the sight of God. It’s the man who becomes unclean, not the food. God gave strict dietary and other laws to Israel to make them distinct from all other nations.

h. Straight away Peter was called to the house of Cornelius, a Gentile.

I. Peter then understood the APPLICATION of the vision. If Christ, by His shed blood, has removed all the sins of man, whether Jew or Gentile, then, if Gentile believers are now clean, then their food is also clean. If God has accepted a man because of the blood of Jesus, He will not reject a man simply because of the kind of food he eats. A man is now accepted because of the Blood, not because of his food.

j. WARNING concerning those who teach this vision has nothing to do with food. That would be ridiculous. God told Peter he could now eat anything. Is God then going to chastise Peter for eating pork and say, “Well, I didn’t really mean you could eat pork, it was just a metaphor” ? That would be ridiculous.

k. Proponents of the “Food Gospel” twist this passage around by saying that God didn’t mean that it’s lawful to eat anything. Peter accepted it. Why can’t they? Because Peter was saved and therefore accepted what God said. Cultists are not saved, and don’t accept what God said.

l. “…Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.”

“I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.”

(Galatians 2:16, 21)

“For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God.” (Romans 10:3)

Watch out for people redefining “freedom”.

This will be done to take away your freedom in the name of “freedom”.

I don’t trust any definition of freedom which is not a Biblical definition.

……

It’s always Gods will to do right and speak the truth.

That’s the only thing Christians need to do and be concerned with.

American Christianity has bred a pragmatic understanding.

For example, Christians may have been speaking out on issues, not because it’s the truth and the right thing to do, but rather, to try and get Trump reelected.

When Christians please the Lord, then, win or lose, they can’t lose.
