I believe you, Father.

I believe you, Lord Jesus.

…….

The way we relate to Him reveals what we think about Him.

For example, if we don’t talk much to Him.

…….

Jesus spoke a lot about Heaven and Hell.

I wonder why?

The people in Hell today wish they could get out.

Make sure you don’t go there.

…….

No money in Heaven.

Everything’s free there.

Paid for on the Cross.

…….

When the grace of God is abused, it no longer applies.

Cling to Jesus because He holds onto you.

But if you think that the fact that He holds you exempts you from clinging to Him, then you’re abusing the grace of God.

2 Corinthians 6:1, Galatians 2:17-18, Hebrews 12:14-17, Jude 4-5

……..

Christians aren’t called to change the world by political dialogue, and yet the world would be much worse than it is if all Christians remained silent.

…….

Christian, if anyone comes to mind, and you don’t feel love in your heart for them, then pause right there and settle the matter with God.

……..

If I didn’t seek the Lord with all my heart yesterday, then I know what I need to attend to today.

…….

A disciple of Jesus expects to be on the earth for the duration of their ministry.

……..

The religious system is based on money, so, when money crashes, so does the system.

…….

Has any Christian ever regretted gaining more self control?

…….

The nature of our life, or, who we are in reality, is determined by the nature and quality of our relationship to Jesus Christ.

……

True Christians don’t belong in this push and shove world, but they’re here to lead people out of it, to eternal life in Christ Jesus.

…….

People are not just skeletons covered in meat, they’re living, eternal souls, but cut off from God by their sin.

……

Christian, in my point of view, our eschatology only really matters to this extent: That when the antichrist is revealed we don’t worship him and take his mark – that we’re not deceived into thinking he is the Messiah.

And, that we’re prepared and equipped to suffer for Jesus name.

If we have these two things crystal clear, then our eschatology will work itself out.

Because if you’re always ready to meet the Lord, and you’ve counted the cost that you may have to suffer for Him, and you’re always willing to obey Him, then your particular brand of eschatology won’t matter too much.

But don’t think I’m saying Bible prophecy is not important. It is vital to increase our faith in the difficult last days.

It also helps us not to get caught up in the antisemitic spirit of this age.

‘It is no secret what God can do, what He’s done for others He will do for you… ‘ …. an old song goes.

Do you have any reason or any proof to believe that God won’t do amazing things for you?

If He has done amazing things in the lives of others, what reason do you have to believe He won’t do the same for you?

…….

‘Yesterday is gone, sweet Jesus’, someone once succinctly wrote.

……

Salvation in Christ Jesus alone is the greatest thing happening on the planet. The Good News is the greatest news.

…..

You don’t need to know everything to know THE WAY. And if you know THE WAY you don’t need to know everything.

……

If there is indeed a Creator of this universe and a Creator of you, why would you live your life as if He doesn’t exist? How can you think that He has no claim over your life, or interest in you? For how long do you think you can avoid Him?

…..

This present world belongs to the violent.

But the world to come belongs to the meek.

(See Matthew 5:5)

…….

According to the Bible, the future belongs to Jesus Christ. The world doesn’t know this, they think things will just keep going like they are.

…….

It’s a little complicated, because American churches want tax exemption, but with no governmental regulation. They want Caesar’s help, but none of his regulations.

If Covid data is so easily fudged for political purposes, what about election data? A real crisis of confidence looms.

It’s inner beauty that counts. Accept no substitute.

……..

In a two-party system consider the supporters of each party, then ascertain which group has a higher proportion of criminality, then vote for the other one. It gives a rough picture of what kind of people support a party, which reflects something about the party, itself. Unless higher rates of criminality is something you desire.

“Those religious folk who think they are too loving to accept what Jesus says about sin, hell, the righteous wrath of God and judgement are some of the nastiest people I have ever come across.”

Intellect is good, but useless without the Holy Spirit.

……….

When Jesus had got through with His disciples then they were convinced.

………

Our relationship to God is what REALLY matters.

………

Does God have to take everything away from the modem Christian before he will start to face reality?

……….

Antisemitism is much more than simply a racial prejudice, it is an issue people have with God.

Antisemites are simply people in agreement with the devil.

………..

……..

In the spiritual sense, don’t abuse a blind man for being blind.

……….

If you do what Jesus says, then you serve God, and if you do what the devil says, then you serve the devil.

……….

We’re praying that God’s Spirit will work in those who hear His word, because salvation is a work of the Holy Spirit in people’s hearts. We’re praying for conviction of sin, repentance, and a revelation of who Jesus is and of His free gift of salvation.

………..

Without Jesus Christ, life ultimately has no meaning.

Are they ready for their millstone? …..

“Then He said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come! 2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. “Luke 17:1-2.

 

It means religious people causing others to sin by teaching that sin is not sin.

And another example of this is the Left Wing indoctrination in schools regarding sexuality. It would be better for them if they were never born than to mess with the kids.

If some people could see the terrible wrath of God which is about to come on them they would fear God, but they’re blinded.

Technology is never a limitation for a church or a servant of God, if the New Testament means anything to us at all.

Political disagreement does not justify hate.

Regarding the current controversy of government control over churches: haven’t we been warning about this for a generation now? The true body of Christ, the church, is not affected by the government Look at the underground church .in China.

If the “church” functions according to government control in the first place then it has no choice but to comply, unless It goes back to the NT church paradigm.

Because institutional churches are under governmental regulations it is like a noose which is tightened little by little each year.

Do we have to repent of our lawless deeds to be justified by faith? Faith and repentance are two sides of the same coin. It’s impossible for someone to have saving faith and not be repentant. And it’s impossible to repent without saving faith. So, we assume coming to repentance and coming to Faith is the same thing. Both statements are true, so it’s not worth going cross-eyed over it.

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Galatians 5:18.

Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law.    Romans 3:31

We who are born of the Spirit are not under the law, but we are not lawless, because the Spirit in us establishes the law. It is not about earning or deserving but about fulfilling.

And holy days and ceremonies and dietary requirements were all fulfilled at the Cross, so we don’t need to fulfill what has been fulfilled.

We need to repent of our lawless deeds in order to be justified by faith.

And then a justified by faith person is no longer lawless, but establishes the law.

Someone writes:

“No, Jesus was not separated from the Father on the cross”

My reply:

“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21

The article is built around the thesis of whether the Father took His eyes off Jesus during His suffering.

This distracts from the real point, of whether the perfect communion Jesus had eternally with His Father was temporarily broken when the Father substitutionally made Him “to be sin”?

We would be right to assume that Jesus was right when He cried out that the Father had forsaken Him, because this is indeed what Jesus experienced as the Father made Him to be sin: that is, imputing the sin of the world onto His Son.

It would be a serious charge to accuse Jesus of being wrong or mistaken when He cried, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”.

It was a temporary abandonment, but it was a great suffering for Jesus to be cast into darkness and not have that communion He always lived by.

Jesus did not suffer in Hell beneath, but He went through Hell as He experienced abandonment. All the light had gone, but He still trusted, because in all that darkness as He was made to be sin He did not sin. He still believed regardless of His horrendous experience.

Then when Jesus said, It is finished, then, truly, that awful abandonment or dereliction was finished, and He committed His soul into His Father’s hands.

And because Jesus experienced separation from His Father, we never have to.

Unless we choose that route.

When a person gets born again by God, what happens is that their dead spirit is given life, raised from the dead, because God’s Spirit comes in and does that, in our innermost being, and then our new born again spirit is joined to God’s Holy Spirit in such an incredible way. We don’t become divine, but we are joined to the divine. Christ lives in us, by the Spirit. Our spirit is joined to His. And from this reality we then live our life by faith.
