Eklessia

April 30, 2018

A re-post:

 

The NT Greek word for “church” is “Eklessia” : “Ek” meaning out, and “lessia” meaning called, so a called-out group of people. The word comes from the Greek political assembly, which was called The Eklessia. Though it’s a simple enough concept it is packed with meaning: Called out of what, and called unto what? Called for what purpose? Who does the calling? What if they’re not called? ….. It’s pretty clear that the Eklessia is defined by the ONE who does the calling, Jesus Christ, who calls people out of the world and unto Him, out of sin and unto righteousness, that the purpose of the assembling together is totally defined by the One who called the assembly, for He calls a people together in Him and to Him, and for Him and by Him. If it’s not about Him then it’s probably not His assembly, but if it’s about Him, His purpose, His truth, His teaching, His kingdom, His love and righteousness, then it’s most likely His Eklessia, His assembly. So, Eklessia is a calling from Jesus Christ. We need to heed His call to come together at His feet.

How disarmament works

April 30, 2018

How does nuclear disarmament work? If you make threats against another country then you must be disarmed, but if you don’t make any threats, but you fully intend to use them anyway, you just keep your mouth shut, then you cannot be disarmed? Dictators should just keep their mouth shut, eh.

Peace talks

April 29, 2018

Negotiating peace with a savage killer of innocent people…. Don’t let the warm fuzzy feelings carry you too far away from reality.

Getting along

April 29, 2018

You would think if people all followed Jesus in Spirit and truth they would all get along?

Leaving it behind

April 29, 2018

We live so many years in this world so we can learn to leave it behind. There’s nothing of this world we can take with us.

Satisfied with God

April 28, 2018

To be satisfied with God is the ultimate in life.

Talking with a friend

April 27, 2018

Talking with a friend…     …this is the essence of prayer, when God is your Father.

A great gift

April 27, 2018

One of the great gifts the Lord gave us is the Lord’s Prayer.

Strong

If you’re strong, it’s to help the weak.

Today

Never separate these two

April 27, 2018
“But God demonstrates his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” (Romans 5:8-9)
.
“He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that does not believe the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God remains on him.” (John 3:36)
.
.
When was the last time you urged someone to be saved from the wrath of God?

Motivation

April 25, 2018

True Christians are motivated only by the truth in Jesus.

False Christians are motivated by anything that appeals to their pride

Expressing your faith to God

April 25, 2018

To pray about things is the prime way we express our faith to God, and then to act in faith.

He’s so loving!

April 25, 2018

I’m encountering more people these days who can’t tell when a preacher is faking the way he speaks, just like an actor who can talk in such loving, kind and gentle tones, but it’s just a role they’re playing. If you’re in the religion business you need such acting ability or you’ll never make money.

Prejudice

April 25, 2018

Prejudice is insidious.

They’ve never heard of John

April 24, 2018

I commented on FB:

Perhaps 90% of the body of Christ lives in developing countries, and perhaps 90% of them have never heard of John Calvin, and they’re doing fine.

Political

April 24, 2018

The problem with political discussions is they get political.

The joy of our life

April 24, 2018

The Lord, Himself, must be the joy of our life.

“Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, Rejoice.”

(Philippians 4:4)

Amen.

We can only rejoice when we have something to rejoice about.

As a Christian, do you have something to rejoice about?

You surely do.

 

Another brick in the wall

April 24, 2018

I never thought I would find myself agreeing with Pink Floyd, but, “Hey! Teacher! Leave them kids alone!” They are just bricks in the wall, brainwashed by the Liberal left.
