Wrong purpose

April 30, 2019

The heresy hunter can thank the heretic for giving him a purpose in life.

Stronger

April 30, 2019

To be stronger in prayer, pray.

gods?

April 29, 2019

If you say you don’t believe in God, but believe morality exists, then perhaps you are the god of your own morality?

Every man a theologian

April 29, 2019

Today, everyone has to be a theologian not to be snookered by the tricky dudes.

Glorious reason

April 29, 2019

Be anxious for nothing, Jesus says.

 

The reason why is glorious.

Identity

April 29, 2019

Rich or poor are standards of this world, and not standards the children of God should take as their identity. If you are in Christ, you are a son of God, you are longer under the world’s classification or limitation, you no longer see yourself as rich or poor, but, rather, that God is now your Father, and you are co-heirs with Christ.

 

Did Jesus see Himself as rich or poor?

 

Neither.

Serve Him

April 28, 2019

The word of God says everyone and everything should serve the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Every thought, every word, every action should serve Him.

 

Every heart motive should serve Him.

 

Every person; rich, poor, black, white, young or old should serve Him.

 

In the future, after He has destroyed His enemies, everyone and everything will indeed serve Him.

Where you’re going

Where you’re going is more important than where you’ve been.

Strengthening

April 27, 2019

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

 

Jude 20-21

 

Praying in the Holy Spirit (either in a known or unknown language) builds us up on our most holy faith.

 

But some activities have the opposite effect upon our faith.

 

A strengthening of our faith is a fruit of true prayer.

 

Not all prayer people pray is by the Holy Spirit, and the indicator is whether our faith was strengthened.

 

We should pray in faith, and, in turn, our faith is strengthened even more.

 

It’s wise if we avoid things which don’t strengthen our faith.

Saturday afternoon ramblings

April 27, 2019

 

 

Was thinking about World War 2, the “war to end all wars”.

 

The Nazi evil was the worst in human history.

 

Therefore, the defeat of Hitler was the greatest military victory in history.

 

You only have to think of what the world would have been like if Hitler won.

 

You would have had gas chambers in Britain and America.

 

A terrible price was paid to defeat that evil.

 

A worse price would have been paid if the allies had failed.

 

Mankind faced the greatest evil it ever had to face and sent it back to hell where it belongs.

 

The greatest test the human race ever faced, and it passed the test.

 

Then, the post-war era saw a boom period of prosperity and development, also unparalleled in history.

 

A literal explosion, the baby boom, technological boom, and a man on the moon, a feat most nations are still incapable of today.

 

The prosperity of the post war era also produced the so-called “sexual revolution”, and the advent of “free love”, before the coming of HIV AIDS in the 80s slowed that down.

 

Out of the ashes of unspeakable suffering and inhumanity rose something great, but that greatness gave way to moral decay.

 

Would this present generation of snow flakes be able to annihilate another “Hitler”?

 

No chance.

 

Many of them don’t even know who Hitler was.

 

The post modern era.

 

I don’t know what you call the present era.

 

The dumbed-down Liberal era?

Sanctify

April 27, 2019

For any Christian, it’s true to say the Lord wants to sanctify you from every single thing which hinders or quenches the work of the Holy Spirit in you, or grieves Him.

Mountains

April 27, 2019

And “…though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.”

 

1 Corinthians 13:2b

 

To remove mountains simply means to remove an impossible barrier or obstacle.

 

A demonized boy was brought to the disciples but they could not cast out the demons:

 

“Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”

 

So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

 

Matthew 17:19-21

 

So the Lord explains that the “mountains” which need to be removed can be situations like this demon-possessed boy – things of that nature.

 

If someone brings a demon-possessed person to you for deliverance, there’s your “mountain”.

 

In such cases we are to “speak to the mountain” to be removed – that is, speak to the demon and it should obey you if you have faith to do it, in Jesus name.

The game

April 26, 2019

World leader says a religion is a great religion.

 

Reporter asks, Then why don’t you become one?

 

He answers, Because I don’t believe it’s true.

 

Reporter is puzzled: But you just said it’s great?

 

I said its great, I didn’t say it’s true. You’re new to this game, aren’t you?

Amazing thing

April 26, 2019

When God helps you, that’s an amazing thing, because anything can be done with His help.

Know Him

April 26, 2019

Do you want to know the Man who died for you?

Caliphate

April 26, 2019

“In the early 21st century, following the failure of the Arab Spring and defeat of the self-proclaimed “Islamic State”, there has seen “a broad mainstream embrace of a collective Muslim identity” by young Muslims and the appeal of a caliphate as a “idealized future Muslim state” has grown ever stronger.”

~ Wikipedia

 

If a global, single Islamic caliphate or state emerges, then, truly, Islam will be revealed as it truly is, not a religion, but a civil, political, government, state authority or power, and, if or when that happens, Islam could be banned from many nations on constitutional grounds, because it sponsors terrorism and denies basic human rights,, and, as a hostile political ideology, support of it could be a treasonable offence.

 

Claiming to be a religion and not a political ideology offers it cover to pursue an Islamic state under the cover of freedom of religion.

Christian Activist

April 26, 2019

We see political, social and environmental activists, but few activists for Jesus Christ.

Learn to love

April 26, 2019

As love is the greatest command, the greatest thing we can learn is to learn to love.
