Repent or perish

February 21, 2020

Repent or perish, Jesus said.

 

So, if you’re a Christian, I trust you’ve repented, and that you won’t be perishing.

Faith grows

February 21, 2020

The more our faith grows the more time we spend with the Author and Finisher of our faith, and, in turn, the more our faith grows.

Free

February 21, 2020

Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

 

John 8:31-32

 

Note, the process.

 

Those who are truly free have abided or lived by the word of God, and been taught by Jesus, as His disciple, and He has taught them the truth of His word, which has been progressively setting them free from the bondage of believing things about God and His word which are not true. A person who believes things which aren’t true is not free, they are a slave to the lie they believed.

All is well

February 20, 2020

Faith is like this, that Jesus says to you, All is well! So, you believe that all is well because He said all is well, and you believe Him, and not necessarily because you feel all is well.

God the Son

February 20, 2020

“The Son can do nothing of Himself”

 

In other words, God can’t cease to be God.

 

As God the Son, Jesus could not act independently of God – in other words, God could not cease to be God.

 

God could not act independently of God.

Empathy and boldness

February 20, 2020

We need to have both empathy and boldness in delivering God’s truth.

Faith in men?

February 20, 2020

There’s an eternal difference between saving faith in Jesus Christ, and faith in a cult.

Jesus saves, and no cult can.

The Bible never says we are to put our faith in men or churches, even if they are good men and good churches.

Faith and reality

February 20, 2020

Faith means to cling to the reality of Jesus Christ, knowing that nothing else and nothing less is actual reality.

Waiting on God

February 20, 2020

Imagine you’re a servant, and you’re going along with your master, and he says, Wait here till I get back!

 

And you say, Yes Sir, I ain’t going anywhere!

 

Then a friend comes and calls you to go with them.

 

And you say, I can’t. My master told me to wait here for him. He can turn up at anytime, so I must wait for him.

 

This is similar to waiting on God.

 

You ain’t going anywhere.

 

Of course, the difference is Christ is in us, He hasn’t left us.

 

But the principle is the same.

 

Waiting on God is being at God’s disposal.

 

Its like being on call, being on duty.

 

It’s a time totally consecrated to Him, where you are there for Him, to hear and obey, to function by His Spirit in the Kingdom matters He has ordained for you.

The whole world

February 19, 2020

“So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

 

Revelation 12:9

 

Don’t want to give glory to the devil, but that’s significant power for someone to deceive the whole world.

 

One thing, in his operations in Christendom, he deceives many as to the nature of sin, transforming evil things into things which ain’t so bad, and even good.

God is stirring people

February 19, 2020

Jesus said, the Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.

 

Think of the principle.

 

In other words, God is more interested in the people than the “forms”.

The Pharisees couldn’t understand that, and it angered them to hear it.

Then, we understand how it is possible for a true move of God even in a church which still holds a lot of tradition.

Perspective

February 19, 2020

It’s a beautiful life in Christ.

 

It’s a beautiful planet.

There are some beautiful people.

But it’s an ugly, vicious, brutal and evil world.

What’s happening?

February 19, 2020

Are you getting more conformed to Jesus every day?

 

Or getting more conformed to the world?

Some questions

February 19, 2020

Here’s some questions for Christians:

 

A. Are there any specific scriptures which prove that the Jewish people will, for a time, think that the antichrist is the Messiah?

 

I know from Daniel 9:27 that the antichrist makes a covenant with the Jews, but does this prove they think he is the Messiah?

 

B. And, if it’s true that scripture points to the Jews accepting the antichrist as Messiah, wouldn’t that mean the antichrist must be a Jew? (Because the Jews would never accept a Gentile as Messiah)

 

The reason for these questions is because of the current belief amongst orthodox Jews that the Messiah will be revealed any day now.

 

And we know, by the words of the true Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, that the Messiah won’t just turn up on the news one day shaking hands with world leaders,, but will descend from heaven with indescribable power and glory, and all the world will see it.

Choose wisely

February 18, 2020

The world is dying.

 

Christ is living.

 

Choose wisely.

Touching the anointed

February 18, 2020

“And he said to his men, “The Lord forbid that I should do this thing to my master, the Lord’s anointed, to stretch out my hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of the Lord.” 1 Samuel 24:6

 

David was restrained from killing a wicked, apostate king by the fact that God had anointed Saul as king.

 

So, today, don’t kill any anointed or so-called anointed preachers, but obey the scriptural command to test what they say and do by the standard of Scripture, and, either bring correction in love, or just have nothing to do with them, and warn the body of Christ about them.

 

And know that if a preacher means by “touch not my anointed” that they cannot be questioned or corrected, that should tell you right away they are not anointed.

 

But of course, the principle still applies that if people lie about or misrepresent true men of God, they’re going to be in big trouble.

Eloquence is overrated

February 18, 2020

It’s the Message that matters, not how eloquently you can say it.

Forever

February 18, 2020

Thank Jesus for eternal life.

 

I’m full of joy knowing I get to live with Him forever.

Eternal separation

February 17, 2020

The Bible says those who go into eternal punishment are eternally separated from the goodness of God: from light, love, peace, joy and happiness. It is infinite, never ending pain, misery and fear.

 

Whereas, those who go to be with Jesus are eternally separated from sin, the devil, suffering, darkness, pain, distress, fear and torment. They walk with God forever.

Incomparable

February 17, 2020

Out of all the men who’ve ever lived there’s none who can compare to Jesus Christ.

 

And yet, He’s far more than the greatest Man who ever lived: He is God in human form.
