The Word of God you received effectually works in you

July 31, 2014

For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when you received the word of God which you heard of us, you received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually works also in you that believe.

1 Thessalonians 2:13

They want the Jews out of Jerusalem

July 31, 2014

This woman is saying that human life has no value at all, and therefore has no conscience about killing innocent people for the cause of Islam. Killing innocent people is perfectly natural for them as they place no value on human life. This is their true agenda, they want all of Jerusalem, and the Jews either dead or out.

The claims of Christ versus other claims

July 30, 2014

Every religion claims to have some kind of monopoly on God, but Jesus Christ claimed that ANYONE who truly believes on Him has eternal life. Guess who is right?

Serving Jesus

July 30, 2014

Serving Jesus, in Spirit and Truth, is not to try and do something for Him, or to do for yourself and then say you’re doing for Him. No. To serve Jesus is to do what He wants you to do. THAT is serving.

Selective Morality

July 28, 2014

When it comes to morality, the world is very selective when they define moral issues, they have a selective morality. The hypocrisy of man is rooted deep in his fallen nature.

Set free from seeking things first

July 28, 2014

If you seek first the Kingdom and His righteousness then He adds the things you need (Matt. 6:33) so then you don’t need to pursue the things you need anymore, they just get added to you bcos you are seeking the Kingdom first. We still need to work, but as we work our heart and mind is set on the Kingdom first and not on things. We are set free from seeking things first, set free from slavery to the futile.

Dual role of The King

July 28, 2014

(Posting a lot about Israel these days, as it is the epicenter of Bible prophecy)

Jesus Christ is the Head of the human race, period: the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords: the ruler of the kings of the earth (Rev. 1:5).

He is also the anointed King of Israel, the Jewish Messiah, of the nation of Israel, of the Jewish nation, and His throne will be in the present day Jerusalem and His rule over the land of Israel, first, and then the whole world.

The Jewish Messiah is, Himself, a real blood Jew of the house of David: the root and offspring of David, the Son of Man and the Son of God: fully Man and fully God: God incarnate. God became a Jew.

Remember the gospel is to the Jew first and then also to the Gentiles. The rule of the King of the Jews is to the Jew first and then to the Gentiles. We are grafted into Israel, not Israel grafted into us. Israel is the root, and we are the branches which have been grafted in, Paul says.

When the Lord Jesus bodily returns that will be the order of business. He will first deal with those who deny the right of the Jews to their land and who hate the Jews. They will be dealt with first.

I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will enter into judgment with them there FOR MY PEOPLE and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and have DIVIDED UP MY LAND. Joel 3:2

Do you have any fellowship?

July 28, 2014

Are you part of a “real life fellowship” where you share your life with others and you share their burdens as well, on a daily basis? That would be “real life” Christianity. But these days there are other religious options you can choose other than real life fellowship, and many choose those options. Jesus is into the “real life” stuff, and not into a withdrawal from reality. Those who have withdrawn from real fellowship should ask themselves why. If we are walking in the light we WILL have fellowship with one another.

Israel will be deceived by the antichrist

July 27, 2014

From what i gather there is an undercurrent expectation among many Israelis of the coming of their Messiah, and yet they mistakenly think He will bring peace in the Middle East, when no such promise is in Scripture. The antichrist will bring a false peace. Don’t expect the antichrist to be some foaming-at-the-mouth jihadist, but rather be ready for a “man of peace” and “unity”, uniting all the religions. There will be a remnant in Israel who will see thru it.

Holding Israel to a higher level of accountability

July 27, 2014

Scanning the world news it’s clear that the world media holds Israel to a higher standard of moral accountability than its Muslim neighbors, and therefore they are honoring Israel in this way (though they may be unaware they are).

What does God’s punishment mean to God?

July 27, 2014

We could call it “a theology of punishment” (except that the word “theology” is a misnomer).

The backdrop to this Biblical subject is a post-Christian “church” that no longer believes God punishes anyone, or ever gets angry with anyone.

I want to dig deeper than the apparently obvious answers to this question, that it is to correct man, to make him see the folly of sin, to make him feel the grief that God feels over sin and to repent. That’s true.

Let’s look at the Biblical command to use the rod on children if they disobey their parents. When you give your child a correction with the stick (as you should) then what is transpiring between you and your child? The child is supposed to understand that the daddy or mommy, whom they know loves them so much, is displeased with their action of disrespecting them. The child is supposed to understand that its parents are right to punish them (as much as they may hate the punishment, and as much as the parents may hate to deal out the punishment).

The child is supposed to come to understand that the parents are RIGHT to be displeased with their disobedience.

The underlying meaning as to what is transacted in this scenario is an issue of authority, and it is an authority which has its origin in God.

With God’s punishment we must ultimately AGREE WITH HIM THAT HE IS RIGHT TO DO SO.

And if a person is under God’s punishment, and they can agree with Him that He is just, fair, loving and righteous to punish them, that they deserve it, then they are in effect worshiping God by agreeing with God.

What does God’s punishment mean to God?

We know that God takes no joy or pleasure in punishment, and yet He does not hesitate to punish, and punish severely when necessary.

Have a think about it and please let me know what you think.

The death of self

July 26, 2014

No one likes death, especially their own death. The death of self is one of the central teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ, and this is the dividing line for people: if they yield to His Spirit and allow Him to work in them to bring them to the end of their selfish pride and ego, and self-identity, then they share in the power of His resurrection and grow into His likeness. But if they don’t yield to His process of death to self and want to retain their self-life, then they receive a strong delusion from God, while still claiming to be Christians.

At rest in the midst of the storm

July 25, 2014

And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the rear of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awoke him, and said unto him, Teacher, care you not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are you so fearful? how is it that you have no faith? And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? Mark 4:37-41

Jesus slept thru the storm. When you lay down your head tonight on your pillow may you sleep like Jesus slept in that boat, the quiet rest of faith, and let the storms of the world rage on.

Awe and wonder

July 25, 2014

If you flip open the Bible and read any few verses at random it should leave you in awe and wonder of God, if He lives in you. That’s why He gave it.

Israel Denial Cult

July 23, 2014

Beware of the Israel Denial Cult, a satanic movement which denies that God gave the land of Israel to the Jewish people.

The antichrist will be raised from the dead

July 22, 2014

And I saw one of his heads as if it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world marveled after the beast. Rev. 13:3

And deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, that had the wound by a sword, and did live. Rev. 13:14

The beast that you saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. Rev. 17:8

a) For any man to be a candidate for the antichrist he must have been raised from the dead. Any others don’t qualify.

b) And it will be a miracle which the whole world witnesses.

c) Just as the resurrection of Jesus is the sign of Jonah, given by God, that Jesus is truly the Son of God (Rom. 1:4) so is the resurrection of the antichrist a parallel false sign, supposedly proving to the world that this man is divine and someone to be worshiped above all else.

d) And this satanic resurrection is designed to attempt to trump or usurp the resurrection of Christ, and it is designed to appeal to those who believe in the resurrection of Christ. And hence the word “anti-christ” : one who takes the place of Christ.

Numbing of the brain

Perhaps the greatest danger of listening to TV preachers is the numbing of the brain.

Only one Book is true

July 22, 2014

The Bible is the only thing you will ever read or hear which is true. If you hear something that is true, it’s bcos its source is from the Bible.
