Don’t listen to a teacher who teaches on love, but has no love for the truth.

……

Many Christians want Jesus to come soon, but not the things which must take place before He comes. If we want Jesus to return we must also say “bring it on” to the New World Order.

……

“Inclusive” means everyone is included, except followers of Jesus Christ.

……

The Bible tells us that everyone will be judged, and it lists the things we will be judged for, so we can know the verdict and sentence in advance, and flee to Christ Jesus, our only Savior, Redeemer and Friend.

The Bible shows us the standard or criteria we’ll be judged by on Judgment Day.

And if you’re interested you can have a look.

…….

Listen out for the Holy Spirit speaking through those you might esteem the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. There is only one Holy Spirit, and He is in the least to the greatest in the Kingdom.

……

The more spiritual one thinks they are, the more blind they are.

……

People generally don’t think of God as a Person who has a mind. They tend to have an Eastern understanding, that God is some mythological or philosophical spirtual concept, and not an actual Person. Like “the force” in Star Wars.

They don’t understand that we are made in His image.

We are persons.

We are made in the image of this Person.

Get it?

This is not about lowering God to man’s standard.

It is understanding what exactly “made in the image of God” tells us about the God in whose image we are made.

The Lord Jesus related to His Father as a Person, not a force.

The Person of the Father spoke in the Hebrew language to the people present several times, saying, “This is my beloved Son…”.

The God of the Bible, whom Jesus said was His Father and was with from all eternity, is an intelligent being, which means He knows and understands everything. He maintains the lives of nearly 8 billion people all at the same time, as well as innumerable other creatures. We can’t fathom such a mind. That is off the charts computing power.

…….

In the political and religious world there’s always two sets of rules: One for me, and one for thee.

……

What about the Christian who accepts the authority of Scripture but ignores the example of the Apostles in how the early church functioned? They don’t see the example set by the Apostles as having any authority in itself.

……

A kingdom is a government and a domain. When you are born again you are transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of Christ. Then, you are a subject of His kingdom and have a part or share in it, a stewardship, a participation, a responsibility, a portion, an inheritance.

This stewardship is now your business. You want to faithfully serve in the part of His kingdom allotted to you by the King. You certainly have no business anymore with the kingdom of darkness, which would be treason. And you have no business meddling with the stewardship of other members of the Kingdom. You are busy enough fulfilling your own stewardship, knowing you will have to answer for that, and not have to answer for someone else’s.

“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.” Colossians 1:13

“But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people’s matters.”

1 Peter 4:15

…….

Prayer is exciting because God is listening and hears what you’re saying.

…….

Every Christian on earth has to trust God today just the same as anyone else.

……

One of the indicators we love someone is we pray for them.

…….

“So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” (Rev. 17:3)

In the simplest terms it means Christianity doing a deal with the devil. It’s a cosy, mutually beneficial relationship: “Christians” get approval by the world, and the devil gets so many more subjects, who think they’re Christians. But this relationship comes to a bloody end because the devil terminates it by destroying the “woman”.

The lesson being, never make a deal with the devil.

What you compromise to gain you will end up losing.

We could go into detail how “Christianity” incorporated pagan concepts to increase popularity.

……

For the true Christian, Christ is right there with you through even the worst day of your life.

……

The true Christian learns afresh each day by experience that their true life is in the Spirit, it is a spiritual life, abiding in Christ.

……

Our days are numbered, quite literally. God numbers them. He knows exactly how many more days you will be staying on the earth.

……

All forms of hatred are bad, and yet we live in a time of irrational hatred, where it’s mystifying as to why they hate so much when there doesn’t seem to be a rational cause. I could get more specific but would be censored.

We are not mystified as to the spiritual causes of this.

……

There’s a bunch of religions, but how many Saviors are there?

Jesus became our Savior because we can’t save ourselves.

……

A gift of the Spirit is a supernatural gift, which means you are doing something impossible for you to do unless the Holy Spirit empowers you to do it.

This should be normal for Christians, doing the impossible every day, and they know it.

……

The goal or vision needs to be stronger than our weakness.

….

Gender issues:

“Biology has evidently been completely subordinated to ideology”

……

You can’t think about God without thinking of the truth about Him.

And you can’t think of the truth about Him without thinking about what He has said.

……

In chains and in a dungeon, Paul taught us we can still be full of joy and the glory of the Lord, and employed in the Kingdom work of praying for others, even if we are stuck somewhere.

….

Would you consider Jesus to be the closest and best friend you have?

……

One meaning of the Kingdom of Christ is that He is personally involved in every aspect of your life.

……

Twenty four hours is a long time. We can pray for a lot of folks in that time.

……

If one takes the position that it is only through exposure to Calvinism or Arminianism that Christians can understand the Bible, that would indicate one believes that Calivinism or Arminianism is the filter or lens through which one understands the Bible.

……

When you trust God, He recognizes it.

That’s the whole point.

……

Grab a hold on eternal life before you die.

True repentance is to look into the face of the Lord Jesus and leave everything He hates far behind.

True repentance is not legalism because legalism is one of the things we need to repent of.

…..

God made us for Himself, and He also made us for one another.

…..

Replied to Costi Hinn:

In 1 Cor. 14 Paul says he speaks in tongues more than all of them, and yet he doesn’t do it in church.

Where then did he do it?

Obviously, in private.

For many Christians, 1 Corinthians chapter 14 is irrelevant to them because it doesn’t fall within the realm of their experience, and that’s a faulty way to approach God’s word.

……

The Lord Jesus plainly taught that unrepentance will cause people to forfeit their souls.

At that time no one felt they needed to get Jesus to define or clarify what sexual sin is.

True Christians define sin as Jesus and the NT defines it.

So, when society flaunts it, true Christians remind and warn society about the consequences of their sin.

This freedom of speech and faith is what is being eroded by the Left.

……

Christian, we want the kind of boldness which love produces.

……

Remember this word, “adoration”.

Christian, you have the capacity to adore God, to hold Him in adoration, to truly love Him for who He is and what He has done.

…..

For the true Christian, their life is entirely spiritual because God’s Spirit indwells them: meaning, everything concerning their life is perceived through their spirit.

“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.” (1 Cor. 2:14-15)

…..

Life, by definition, is essentially spiritual, the only question is, which spirit?

……

The only basis by which God can forgive us is on the basis that His Son, Jesus Christ, shed His blood and died in our place, and it’s on this basis alone, and it’s wonderful.

…..

Oftentimes deception begins in Christians the moment they think they are special.

You might say, “I am special!!!”.

Yes, everyone is special, so you’re no more special than anyone else.

This is the problem in thinking you are special.

……

Either, God has forgiven all our sins or none of our sins.

This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that you can know you are fully forgiven.

Obviously, it would be futile to be partly forgiven.

……

Someone might be evil, but you don’t know if they will come to the Lord later.

…..

The state of the world is much worse in the sight of God than how we see it, because scripture says His eyes are too holy to look upon sin, whereas none of us can claim such holiness.

…….

If we accept God’s word then we have peace.

If we don’t accept it then we should be conflicted inside because we don’t accept it, unless a person is deceived and has a false peace in believing a lie.

……

Where Christians often get confused on this matter of “God speaking” today is they don’t delineate between truth and specific guidance.

It’s better to say that God, through His Spirit, communicates to our spirit both the truth of Gods word and practical, specific guidance or leading, and these are obviously distinct and not the same thing.

God is constantly communicating by His indwelling Spirit with the person who knows Him, but, even so, it would be foolish and conceited to say, ‘God told me!’ concerning every matter.

We can call this communication an inner witness, and it’s what Jesus meant when He said, ‘My sheep hear my voice”.

……

We all want to have great faith, and yet we want to have great faith for that which is His will and plan, and not great faith for what is not His will.

So, it’s okay to be lacking faith for something which is not His will.

…..

The only spiritual help we can be to others is to help them understand the truth of God’s word, help them to know Him, to hear His voice and be taught and led by Him.

……

Jesus Christ knows our faith because He knows our heart and mind, because He lives in us who are His.

……

Jesus Christ…

Leads us
Guides us
Loves us
Provides for us
Forgives us
Empowers us
Teaches us
Delivers us
Warns us
Corrects us
Encourages us
Heals us

Sanctifies us

Etc…

…..

No one can add to what Christ has done, and yet our actions can be a denial or rejection of what He has done.

…..

“Preach Christ, don’t preach morality.”

This statement can easily be misunderstood.

If we faithfully preach Christ we will also remind people of all His moral commands, just as He commanded us to do: “…teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you…” (Matt. 28:20a)

If a preacher preaches Christ but omits to preach what He commanded then they’re not preaching Christ at all.

…..

Would you say the greatest thing in your life is your fellowship with God?

……

God owns everything, and we just borrow it for a while.

…..

In truly serving Christ there’s nothing we should expect to gain for ourselves if we are faithful servants.

…..

Jesus said, “Come to me!”. He never said, “Come to Christianity!”.

It’s not about getting a religion, it’s about experiencing God transform you into a new creation.

……

If Christ is not your Savior and you died today then you would have to face the Judgment Throne of God with no Savior.

……

If man-made religious traditions were that good then they would be in God’s word.

……

God’s word decides right from wrong.

I wouldn’t trust anyone else to decide that.

And I certainly wouldn’t trust myself to decide that.

…..

What would you have against entrusting your soul into the hands of Jesus Christ?

Who else could you entrust to keep your soul forever?

….

To speak for Christ one must first hear Christ speaking to them.

……

Faith is not dependent on all the things we have come to use and depend on in modern life because all the great heroes of faith, foremost the Lord Jesus, had none of the things we depend on.

……

Our actual relationship to God is our actual faith.

True Christian faith is to know God, not faith in a God whom you don’t know, for that’s not faith.

……

If you are without Christ you could drop into Hell at any moment of the day or night.

……

When a society doesn’t have the love of God it is not a civilized society.

……

Christ Jesus clothes us in His righteousness, imputes to us His righteousness, and works His righteousness in us.

……

We must not forget to thank God for everything and fully acknowledge all that He has done for us.

If He had not “done for us” where would we be?

It’s true.

…..

Looking at the democratic forms of government today, we can look at it and understand that God, in His Sovereignty, gave a great responsibility to people in that they can have a say in who will govern them, knowing that secular governments are instituted by God as a temporary measure so that this world can keep functioning and not collapse into anarchy.

I think it’s a sign of Gods judgment that many Christians don’t appreciate the freedoms they have, not seeming to understand history, that historically the freedom they enjoy today is a very rare thing.

In part, the rise of democracy in the western world was due to the influence of Christianity, and the publication and influence of the Bible played a large role, as prior to that most government was despotic and people had little or no rights.

…….

God has no beginning or end, He has lived forever, and yet He is not old because He can’t age, He is timeless. Looking back into eternity past, He was there, and looking into eternity future, He is there, and those in Christ will be with Him there for eternity, for Jesus promised eternal life to all who love Him.

……

Pick any person on earth at random and ask, What does this person’s life amount to?

One day it will be fully known and understood, the Bible says.

One very good indicator of the spiritual condition of people is how they treat the elderly.

……

It’s not our job to tell people they’re on the way to hell, as if it’s merely our opinion or up to us to decide, but to present God’s word to them so they can judge for themselves whether they’re going to Heaven or Hell.

……

Whoever you are, you can be reconciled to God if you want to be. This is what Jesus promised.

……

What I pray for all my friends, and enemies, is they receive the same grace and forgiveness which I’ve received.

…..

Those who go to Heaven have eternity to enjoy living there, and eternity to really get to know the Father and the Lamb.

……

Man isn’t man’s idea. He is not his own creation. It is God who thought up the concept of human beings.

……

Like all previous civilizations, this present civilization will also return to dust and be forgotten.

…….

The Christian life is only possible by the power of the Holy Spirit.

…..

The classic, timeless storybook motif of “good versus evil” is played out in the political narrative today, except it’s reversed, and the “good guys” are those with no sense of morality.

……

The whole purpose behind CRT, BLM etc. is it’s a fake political manoevre to falsely paint Conservatives as racists and therefore increase the Democrat vote, to then save the nation from these imaginary racists. It’s fake.

……

Natural love might be enough to love our friends, but it takes the love of Christ to love and pray for our enemies.

……

Racism is disgusting.

Falsely accusing of racism is equally disgusting.

…..

Jesus said, count the cost. It could cost you your life. It will certainly cost you the loss of most things you once held dear. And that’s okay if He is with you.

……

We can’t really know what really matters unless we know Jesus Christ and understand His words.

……

A true Christian believes what Jesus Christ said.

Yes?

…..

Jesus Christ gives you the option of living in fantastic luxury and super rich opulence forever, or suffering forever, but most people choose the second option by virtue of refusing the first.

……

Do you consider every person to have equal value and importance in the sight of God?

……

When it’s illegal for Christians to share their faith with others, then it should also be illegal for people of any faith to share their faith, or illegal for Atheists to share their philosophy on life, or illegal for any kind of beliefs, values or philosophy to be shared. Liberal or Woke philosophy would also have to be illegal.

Equity. Remember?

Commented

On the matter of the difference between the authority of scripture and the authority of the church, when we analyze the nature and use of authority in the NT church we can see no disparity between that and the authority of scripture.

The churches had virtually no authority over people’s lives except in matters of disciplining the unrepentant by shunning them from fellowship until they are restored to the Lord.

In practical life we see virtually no authority over people’s lives.

But of course, spiritual authority doesn’t usually work by coercion, but by sacrificial love.

Divine authority was expressed through the power of the Gospel and the Spirit, but not a temporal authority, such as was later grasped as churches began to apostasize in the second and third centuries.

One misconception about Christian authority is to fail to grasp that it is primarily the authority to love and to forgive others.

It is Christ giving us His authority over our lives, so we take authority over our thoughts, words and actions in His name.

There are “churches” in India which have virtually total control of peoples lives. The “pastor” decides whom they will marry. They must keep the “pastor” updated on how much they are earning so he can calculate the 10% of it he comes and collects from them each month. Etc.

……

Why do people cry out Jesus! when something bad happens?

Why no one else’s name?

Is it that the name of Jesus affects their conscience in some way?

……

Notes on 1 Thessalonians 5:12-24

a. Recognize those who teach God’s word among you. For these to be able to personally correct people they must personally know them. We are to esteem them on the basis of what they do, and not on the basis of them having a position. “Over” you in the Greek means “before” you. It’s not someone ruling over you, but someone going before you as a guide, in the sense of having more experience. A guide need not be a dictator.

b. All the brethren are charged with caring for one another and speaking into one another’s life.

c. Let your replies to critics be respectful.

d. It’s always right to rejoice in the Lord as an expression of your faith.

e. Never give up praying for folks or things you need.

f. In all circumstances give thanks to God for His faithfulness.

g. Quenching the Holy Spirit is like grieving Him. It metaphorically speaks of putting out a fire by throwing buckets of water on it. Things we do or don’t do can have the effect of putting out the spiritual flame in our heart and turning us cold. If we oppose the Spirit or ignore the Spirit then it is like extinguishing the Holy fire in our heart. In this sense, so much of what falls short of glorifying God, and spiritual weakness is simply due to negligence and quenching the Spirit. The person and the church which does not quench the Spirit will be a powerhouse.

h. Don’t despise prophecies, but test them, keep the good, and reject what’s not. If the gift of prophecy had ceased then Paul would not have admonished them not to despise prophecies.

i. Abstain from every form of evil. Know all the forms evil can present itself in. “Abstain” means, “No thanks, that’s not for me”.

j. God will sanctify all our being: spirit, soul and body, and present us blameless before His throne. Here, the imputed righteousness of Christ is manifest in practical righteousness, so the practical doesn’t contradict the imputed.

……

True Christianity is to talk directly to God through His Son, Jesus Christ, with no intermediaries, formalities, formulas, procedures, traditions, superstitions, and certainly no idols…

…..just as you like people to talk to you.

You want them to talk to you, not do all the other stuff, which would imply they’re actually trying to avoid talking directly with you.

……

Some people say, “Last night on the streets we led 50 people to accept Christ”, but the big question is, Has Christ accepted them?

He will accept them if they truly come in faith, turning away from and renouncing their sinful life.

But He won’t accept them if they’re unrepentant.

A person is playing a dangerous game with God to “accept Jesus” but not be truly sorry for their sins and repent.

……

Any data which has political fallout is “misinformation”.

……

If we’re not earnestly seeking and expecting the Kingdom of God then we’re probably content with some other kingdom.

…..

Do you have a promise from God apart from Jesus Christ?

…..

Jesus turns sinners into saints, rebels into princes, unholy into holy, unclean into clean, fools into wise, broken into whole.

……

We don’t expect people living in darkness to see, unless a Light shines upon them.

Preach the Gospel and bring the Light.

……

That man can appreciate the beauty of creation is one of the proofs of the existence of God.

If there were no God then the universe would have no meaning, and therefore the concept of beauty would not exist, because if something has no meaning, how can it be beautiful?

Basically, how do you know something is beautiful? How do you know anything?

If all creation accidentally came together by itself, then how do you know anything if nothing has meaning or purpose, and it’s all just random chance?

We’re supposed to look at the complexity and beauty of nature, and the vastness of the universe, and understand something about God.

……

God doesn’t recognize any spiritual labels because there is only one body of Christ. He only sees the Blood of Christ which redeemed us. There is only one Spirit of God.

……

A central tenet of the Bible is there is only one God, and no other god exists.

There are no lesser gods, hierarchies of gods, etc.

Either a person knows this one, true God, or they don’t.

Jesus taught us to call Him, “Father”, for Jesus is the only begotten Son of the Father.

Jesus taught that, through faith in Him, we have direct access to the only one, true God.

We can even call Him our Father.

…..

“…Men always ought to pray and not lose heart”

Luke 18:1b

…..

God can, and does, use anyone to fulfill His purpose, even people who don’t know Him. He’s amazing.

True Christian faith seizes the moment, seizes the day, and seizes the future on into eternity.

……

The Democrat party knows it must preserve its ability to cast fraudulent votes if it is to survive, so it is calling moves to eliminate such fraud as “suppression of voting rights”. Give a list of countries where illegal immigrants and people who are not willing to show their ID are allowed to vote? Of course most blacks have photo IDs, so it’s not oppressing them to require them to have it, it’s simply preventing fraudulent voting.

……

Hitler, Stalin, Mao… they all did “fact checking” and made sure there was no “misinformation”, after all, they should know, right?

……

How it works is, we keep putting the truth of God’s word out there, and it speaks to some people. Even if it doesn’t speak to most, if it just speaks to a few, and those few hear the Lord speaking to them, then it’s worth it, because even one person is worth it.

Christian maturity usually means you’ve learned by your errors and mistakes over time.

The earth’s magnetic field is going through a period of flux, and this has an effect on solar radiation, and this surely must be the main driver of climate change.

True science is the study of God.

…..

Nothing we do or don’t do can cause God to love us. His love is umerited. And yet if we don’t repent we’ll die.

When God righteously judges a person it’s not because His love for them ceased – it’s not because their sin caused God to stop loving them.

……

Look at any hero in the Bible: What was the secret of their success? They believed and obeyed what the Lord said.

It’s interesting that Jesus never mentioned “positive or negative”, rather, only, “true or false”, “right or wrong”.

It’s not to say ‘positive and negative’ don’t exist.

Its that there are more accurate terms, such as ‘faith or unbelief’.

It’s more accurate or true to understand something in relation to God, rather than thinking of it independently of God.

‘Positive or negative’ is also a weak way of describing things because the perception of what constitutes ‘positive or negative’ varies.

To some, truth which they don’t care to hear might be perceived as ‘negative’, and a falsehood they want to hear, ‘positive’.

Typically, such people divide the Bible up into ‘positive’ verses and ‘negative’ verses.

Any Christian, anytime, anywhere, can be a mighty vessel of the Holy Spirit.

That’s what we should expect.

God will, either, do what He said, or He won’t do as He said.

Thanking Him for eternal life.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound teaching, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” (2 Tim. 4:3-4)

They follow teachers “according to their own desires” and not according to the Kingdom of God.

The teachers they follow reflect their own desires.

It’s implied here that people’s “own desires” are at odds with God’s desires.

What they want, and what God wants, are two different things.

……

The true Holy Spirit displaces and drives out EVERY other spirit.


He has no part with any other spirit.

……

Never let people’s assumptions about you have any effect on you. An assumption is nothing.

……

Jesus has all the answers. If you know who He is then you know why.

……

It’s a mistake for Christians to equate being filled with the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues (unknown languages).

There have been notable revivals over history where God’s Spirit was poured out, lives changed, and whole communities transformed, and yet virtually no sign of the gift of tongues or even much in the way of physical healing.

Yet the true gift of tongues is still very much alive in every nation.

But it is not proof one has been filled with the Holy Spirit.

You can be filled with the Spirit and not speak in tongues. You can speak in tongues and not be filled with the Spirit.

Equating the one with the other tends toward people being manipulated into doing it.

Many preachers tell their audience that they should expect to speak in tongues when the Holy Spirit falls on them. They are manipulating them by prompting or coaching them to do it.

In the Bible, no one was manipulated into receiving any gift.

Such cults work up the “gift” by themselves, without the Spirit. And the members are pressured into it to prove they are saved in the eyes of the cult leaders.

Yet there’s still the true gift.

There is the real and the counterfeit.

“For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.

What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding.”

(1 Corinthians 14:14-15)

So, its usually praying in a tongue (different language) rather than speaking in tongues.

Speaking in tongues must have an interpretation.

Unless it is directly to a person who understands that language.

……

Through suffering, discouragement, temptation, pain or grief, God the Holy Spirit remains inside the faithful disciple. It might seem like it’s hard to get through to God’s Throne in Heaven, yet God is in you all the while. You are in Christ, and He in you.

The Holy Spirit always reveals Christ Jesus, always lifts our eyes to Heaven, where Christ sits at the right hand of God.

Sometimes it seems like we’re trying to push through to the Throne room, yet it’s God, Himself, who is in us empowering us to pray.

Yes, the person who abides in Christ has God inside them.

The glory may be veiled, but God’s Spirit can never be anything less than God.

……

A social media platform should limit itself to simply being a platform, not the arbiter of an ideology.

Each individual should be their own censor and fact checker.

The system will maintain itself.

We know the Bible teaches that shepherds feed and care for the sheep.

Then, the sheep should know that whoever feeds and cares for them is a shepherd to them.

This has nothing to do with organizations.

……

We know we should never glorify ourselves.

And, if God wanted to glorify us, He would surely do it.

And, if God wanted to glorify us, He surely wouldn’t need our help.

……

It’s the greatness of God which makes it possible for Him to care for every person on the planet, and all the creatures and plants.

……

It’s hard for us normal people to comprehend that there’s people on this planet, who, not only want power over others, but want to rule the world, and don’t care how many people they need to murder to make that happen.

While I agree wholeheartedly with these points, it’s worth considering the difference between truly seeking Gods perfect will and fatalism.

Whatever God has promised we can believe for.

And we also consider that Gods will doesn’t just happen.

We are not to passively resign ourselves to, “if it is Gods will it will happen”.

We have known people who believe, fatalisticly, that everything that happens, every circumstance, must be Gods will because He is Sovereign. And we watched as the devil did whatever he wanted with them, and they passively accepted it as Gods will.

On the point of “success” : surely there is a thing called success, as opposed to being a failure.

Whatever we do, success would glorify God more than failure.

Although, sometimes God knows we need to fail, to humble us.

Looking at Jesus ministry, the healings and deliverance were indeed signs of who He was/is, and yet they were not only signs or proofs.. “Signs” was only one aspect of the miraculous. The other aspect was the compassion of God on the sick and oppressed.

In other words, signs were not purely for proving who Jesus is, but also an expression of Gods compassion.

Today we shouldn’t be thinking that signs or the miraculous prove anything, we should be thinking of compassion, mercy and the glory of God.

Signs don’t prove anything today because:

a. The Gospel has already been proved by Jesus rising from the dead.

b. The word of God has already been established through the original Apostles. Signs do not confirm any preacher or teacher today.

c. The devil can also do signs and wonders.

……

Consider both of these scriptures together:

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” (Eph. 2:8-9)

And…

“For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ. But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.” (Jude 4-5)

In the context of Jude, he is talking about members and some leaders of the church at that time, who, even though they confessed Jesus as Lord, and said they believed in the grace of God, did not have genuine faith.

Their “faith” resulted in immorality. Their understanding of “grace” led them to justify all kinds of sin. They had a false gospel.

Salvation is by grace, through GENUINE faith.

Genuine faith is a pure and holy faith. It will never justify sin. It will never try to find a loophole from the Bible to try and excuse it.

There are famous preachers who claim to have the GRACE message who’ve made millions of dollars merchandising it.

That’s not genuine saving faith.

Genuine saving faith will shun covetousness and the love of money.

They have turned the grace of God into a license for their sin.

Here’s a faulty rationale: The Jews will rebuild the Temple, make animal sacrifices, and the Antichrist will rule from it, therefore, anyone who supports the right of Israelis to live in the Biblical land of Israel must be a supporter of the Antichrist, and believe that animal sacrifices are necessary.

No. Supporting Israel’s right to exist does not equate with supporting everything Israelis believe or do.

I believe all we need to do is pray for their salvation, extend the Gospel to them, stand up for them when they are lied about, maligned or hated, and the rest is in God’s hand.

Time and time again surveys have found that many who identify as Christian think they will only make it to heaven if they are good enough.

These are not Christians.

Why?

Because they have not been saved by grace, through faith, and have not recieved salvation as the gift of God.

The Jews will be seen as illegally occupying Palestinian territory.

They either want them out, or annihilated.

A few days ago Palestinian demonstrators in New York were calling for the genocide of the Jews.

This is the Woke religion.

It will eventually brainwash the whole world, so that all nations will fight against Jerusalem.

Why should the Jews be allowed to live there? Because God gave them that land.

People don’t believe God gave them that land because they don’t believe God’s word.

And they don’t believe God’s word because they are enemies of God.

Kingdom or Church?

June 19, 2021

Oftentimes we see Christians pitting the Kingdom against the Church, saying the Kingdom is where it is at, not the Church.

It’s a foolish debate because they are not defining Church as it is defined in the New Testament.

The Lord Jesus spoke that He will build His Kingdom AND His Church, which is His body.

He was not taking on two separate projects.

His Church, that is, His people, are the expression of His Kingdom, for now, until His visible Kingdom comes when He visibly and physically comes to judge the nations.

So, obviously, what we know of “church” barely resembles His Kingdom.

The Church is a Kingdom of Priests, scripture says.

It’s not a concert you attend.

It’s an expression of His Kingdom.

So, it’s a serious issue.

Especially when we see Christians isolating themselves from others, not fellowshipping. They are missing the Kingdom.

To obey the Lord means to obey the truth, to choose righteousness and shun evil, and to desire His leading and guidance, knowing you are fulfilling His calling, and not your own.

When we trust Him we are obeying His word, for He has commanded that we must trust Him.

Everyone you see around you, down the street, on Facebook, on TV, and everyone you know, will one day stand before the Judgment Throne of Christ.

There’s nothing in this world that can compare with Jesus Christ.

These are the last days, and good days to understand and experience the Fatherhood of God.

……

Faith and repentance are really two sides of the same coin: both describe relationship with God, so they are two aspects of that relationship.

……

“…Out of weakness they were made strong…”

Hebrews 11:34

…..

Only a perfect person can enter into Heaven and the presence of God, because nothing sinful can enter there, scripture says.

And only the sacrifice of Jesus Christ can make us perfect in the sight of God.

His perfect righteousness is imputed to us who believe.

This is why Jesus is the only way to God.

…..

“None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.” (Heb. 8:11)

In this, the New Covenant, all know the Lord. So, where we see elitism and hierarchy it’s a sign that all don’t know the Lord. When all know the Lord those things can’t exist. And when all know the Lord then all serve Him, all are His instruments.

It always happens that those who know the Lord become His instruments.

Think about this, if a church today truly represented the New Covenant, then all, from the least to the greatest, would know the Lord.

……

The Bible says God is love, and God demonstrates or asks us to examine His love for us by the fact that He gave His only Son to die for us.

Love existed before men and women were created. The Father loved the Son in eternity, which has no beginning or end.

Men and women only have a concept of love because God gave them the ability to understand what it is.

Of course, the love of God far transcends natural human love, because it is selfless love.

Human love is tainted by sin.

The love of Christ is pure and holy.

….

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matt. 7:21-23)

Here we have “Christians” who seem to have all the right beliefs, confessing Jesus as Lord, and perhaps they are notable pastors or evangelists, casting out demons, healing the sick, preaching the Gospel, but they never truly repented of their sin, and they were never born again, and never had the true Holy Spirit, and they end up in hell.

You could be following such a person.

Check for the love of money, which is idolatry, love of power, love of the praise of men, love of titles, of self promotion, of loose morals and ethics, which, when consistently practiced as a lifestyle, indicate a person has not truly repented.

……

The evil of man knows no bounds when he is turning his back on God.

……

Liberal Progressives are always confused about where to draw the line between decent and indecent, between what is acceptable and what is off limits, because they have no moral absolutes.

“Responsible and Compassionate Global Citizen”

This is the terminology of the New World Order.

Sounds nice, except when you consider who defines it and who decides the criteria for deciding who is a Responsible and Compassionate Global Citizen.

Would you like to see God?

The Bible says everyone will, on Judgment Day.

……

The Holy Spirit was sent to help us because it’s impossible to live for God by ourselves. Whatever your situation, are you looking at it by what you can do, or by what the Holy Spirit can do in you and through you?

……

If you can find out what it is, exactly, about the Bible that offends you, then you’ve isolated your real problem, and your real problem is a problem with God.

……

If the Holy Spirit is in us, our life should be lived in relation to His working in us and never autonomously.

……

“Tech monopolies will not allow that conversation”

……

Jesus said, “If you continue in my word you are my disciples indeed, and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free!”

If we’re not free it’s because we didn’t continue in His word, and therefore don’t know the truth.

“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”

(Luke 11:9-10)

The preceding verses teach persistence in prayer. So, it is to keep asking, keep seeking, keep knocking.

……

Any true Christian’s testimony is a testimony of God’s amazing forgiveness, mercy and grace upon them.

Christ is glorified.

If your government makes it illegal to criticize them then you no longer have a government, you have a mafia.

……

Been revisiting the Book of Revelation.

a. Be holy. Be ready to meet the Lord today.

b. Be strong in faith that God will provide.

c. Be ready and prepared to suffer because of your faith. Let God cultivate perseverance and endurance in you, as well as a toughness.

d. Become less dependent on luxuries and comforts. Become a tough soldier of Christ, enduring hardship.

e. Don’t concern yourself as to the timing of the catching up.

f. Don’t concern yourself as to which of the groups of saints mentioned in the book you belong to, because God decides that, not us. We don’t choose that. Our responsibility is to be holy and faithful.

g. Know that you are not appointed to wrath. The wrath of God could fall on your nation, but not on you.

h. Try to become increasingly self sufficient and not dependent on the government or society. If possible, keep a good stock of non perishable food.

i. Cultivate fellowship and close family ties with other believers, helping one another.

My question to @pontifex is: Your organization murdered untold thousands of people while claiming to be “the church”. For an organization to commit such degree of evil it would have to be controlled by satan. So my question is, when did your organization cease being controlled by satan? Can you give us an approximate date?

If you’re a thinker, think a little today about what your conscience is.

When you examine your own conscience, doesn’t the subject of God come up?

That’s what Jesus said

June 11, 2021

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matt. 7:21-23)

Here we have “Christians” who seem to have all the right beliefs, confessing Jesus as Lord, and perhaps they are notable pastors or evangelists, casting out demons, healing the sick, preaching the Gospel, but they never truly repented of their sin, and they were never born again, and never had the true Holy Spirit, and they end up in hell.

I’m doing great because God’s promises are true and I’m experiencing His promises.

……

We can teach God’s word, but we can’t impart the ability to understand it.

……

Some degree of material prosperity is promised in the New Testament, but it is not promised to those who seek after material prosperity.

Consider:

Matt. 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

And…

Mark 10:29-30

This is very rarely taught.

Most people are seeking material prosperity.

This means they are not seeking first the Kingdom of God.

……

The Lord knows how much faith we have because He gave it to us, and sustains our life, and watches and weighs everything we say, do and think.

…..

“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.

Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.” (Matt. 25:1-2)

And you know how it ends.

It means there are many people today who are looking for Jesus’ return who will miss out on His Kingdom.

The foolish “Christian” is not going to make it.

Foolish means stupid.

These are “Christians” obsessed with stupid things.

…..

Faith is about far more than getting us to Heaven, it’s about a victorious life against insurmountable odds, today.

…..

If I had the choice between working with someone who’s a little egotistical and rude, and someone who’s totally fake and phony, I would choose the first one.

To believe God’s word is to believe God.

…..

The Day when Jesus Christ judges the world is all about what He says about you. He knows everything about you. Only what He has to say about you is the actual truth about you, and it’s all that will matter. What anyone else thinks will be irrelevant.

…….

The Cross of Jesus Christ removes any grounds for self glory.

…..

Commented that Calvinists don’t believe the warnings in scripture are addressed to them.

Someone replied, Oh, yes they do believe the warnings!

I replied, no, they don’t believe the warnings, because they don’t believe it’s possible for them to fall away.

The warnings are not merely about losing rewards, but of being ultimately rejected by Christ.

To say it is impossible for a believer to fall away is the same as saying the warnings are only to false converts.

……

Christian, go for great faith, not little faith.

Modern western society is based on the assumption the Bible is not true. A fatal mistake.

Big Tech, Big Pharma, and Big Totalitarian style government don’t tolerate any questions.

Tyranny is to silence every one who dares question the party line. We see a nexus of tyranny between Big Tech, Big Pharma, and Big Gov, the Democrats. An unholy alliance.

If Trump is personally responsible for Jan 6, then by the same logic Biden is responsible for all the violence, looting and arson of the past 2 years.

It’s not about religion, philosophy or politics, it’s about truth.

Regardless of politics, it’s always good when the truth comes out.

……

The Bible says God gives life and breath to every creature. The natural is sustained by the supernatural. And science still doesn’t know what life is, let alone create it.

…….

If you’re an atheist, how confident are you in your atheism? As you prepare to die are you happy knowing that you don’t have a soul, and that everything is meaningless, and you will simply cease to exist? Are you absolutely sure about that?

…….

If it matters to Him, it should matter to us.

……

Perhaps the toughest thing Jesus said:

“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you” (Matt. 5:44)

If you were a Jew in the Holocaust, could you imagine loving and blessing those who were sending you and your family to the gas chambers? Could you refuse to hate and revile them simply out of obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ, despite what you felt like doing?

It’s a very tough call.

…….

Christian, are you a vessel for the ministry of the Holy Spirit through you?

……

Everyone will give an account to God.

Better to give it today.
