Looks like Big Tech’s scheme to brainwash the masses is backfiring on them.

……

Testing teachers or preachers:

Draw up two columns:

Column A. – What do they have which is right?

Column B – What do they have which is wrong?

Then compare the lists.

Include both doctrine and manner of living.

…….

Created things have an element of glory solely due to the glory of their Creator.

The Bible says man exchanged the glory of his Creator for the lesser glory of His creation.

Which was not a good deal.

See Romans 1:22-32

Look at an ant.

There’s a lot of glory there if you can see it.

But its Creator is infinitely more glorious.

……

Isn’t history summarized by that song, “Everybody wants to rule the world” ?

It summarizes history because it summarizes man’s fallen nature.

It’s either, rule, or be ruled.

It’s one of the biggest obstacles to having a Biblical expression of a church.

There are always people who want to be number one.

……

Salvation by works is false.

And salvation without fruit is just as false.

…….

The only thing required to make this world a living hell is for God to withdraw His restraining hand.

……

My guess is it’s the same people who went on the rampage rioting, looting and burning property who are doing voter fraud right now.

……

The Bible says the first man was Adam.

God was his spiritual Father and his Creator, but not his biological father, as his biology was from the soil.

This man is the father of the human race. I use “is” because he is alive today in Heaven.

The day Adam was created I guess the first person he saw as he opened his eyes for the first time was his Father.

The Bible doesn’t say He saw the Father, but it implies it because the Father walked and talked with Adam and Eve every evening.

Before they sinned they were perfect and holy, so there was no separation between them and God.

After they sinned they tried to hide from God.

See:

Romans 5:12-19

1 Corinthians 15:45-49

…….

Balance prevents a fall.

……

Only those who follow the Son can call His Father their Father.

…..

Morality is about God’s order.

To honor God’s order is to honor Him.

To defy God’s order is to defy Him.

…….

In politics, good news is bad news if you’re the opposition.

…….

Repost:

If there are no denominations in heaven, then there should not be any on earth, because, for the same reason there are none there, there should be none here.

…..

When people hold to a certain movement then they lose their objectivity.

Assuming they had it to begin with.

We are entering the time of the Great Tribulation.

It’s a time of testing for God’s people.

Some will pass the test, others fail.

It will reveal the actual faith of Christians.

Easy times don’t reveal faith.

……

How can a Christian be ready to die for their faith if they can’t die today to their carnal or self-centered desires?

Are the people who respond to evangelism ready to die for their faith?

Many of them couldn’t even get out of bed and go to church let alone die for their faith.

……

SDA

The “Saturday Religion”, where Saturday becomes the focal point, the main thing, and not Jesus Christ.

…….

Remember Jesus said don’t cast your pearls before swine lest they turn on you?

Today it would read, don’t cast your pearls before the Trolls lest they censor you.

The ETERNAL gives REAL MEANING to the TEMPORAL.

It’s the proper context for the here and now.

…….

“But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.”

Revelation 21:22-23

This is the consummation.

No temple means no religion.

Direct relational communion with God.

Forever.

……

Your best thought today would have to have come from your Father in heaven. Right?

……

The only way in is by the precious Blood of the Son.

The only way out is by trampling that precious Blood under your feet.

The IN door is also the OUT door.

“Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?”

Hebrews 10:29

…….

Morality has become political.

It looks like the State is the new custodian of morality.

So, when they’re corrupt they just say it’s not corrupt, and so it is as they say.

And the comrades are happy.

…….

A little progress each day adds up to big progress in a very short space of time.

…….

God is always at work, tirelessly, and we can participate with Him in His work in a small way.

……

When you understand the Bible you not only understand God, you understand the world and yourself.

Understand yourself, then you understand others.

……

The parable of The Prodigal Son.

It’s TRUE, it gives great hope to the back slider who comes to his senses, repents, and wants to know whether the Father will still accept him, and yet it doesn’t offer any hope at all to those who want to consider themselves sons but are unrepentant.

…….

Why vote for someone?

It’s not about whether you like him, it’s about whether he can get the job done.

God delivered the Israelites from Egypt.

No one else could have.

It’s the same today.

…..

We are new creatures in Christ – a new creation.

Let’s keep praying for one another that our lives and our faith reflects that reality powerfully, for His glory.

……

You too can build a Tech empire and become the Thought Police.

Not just money, but power over the ignorant.

……

Quote

“This is a Big Tech information coup. This is digital civil war.”

…….

How seriously do we take God?

How seriously does God take us?

There’s a link there.

……

Most don’t want to live an irrelevant, insignificant, meaningless life, but they do when they turn their back on Jesus Christ and therefore reject God.

……

We pray for Presidents and paupers, the rich and the poor, the great and the small, and everyone in between, without partiality – all are of equal value.

…..

HOLY FASCINATION

To have a holy fascination of God is when the very nature of God is so amazing to us that He commands our interest and attention.

God fascinates us when He attracts and holds our attention.

And when He interests and delights us then our thoughts tend to concentrate on Him.

……

It’s absurd to think Christians should not have a say in the democratic process or any input into societal issues.

It would be like saying they should stop being salt and light in the world.

……

With all the ugliness in society don’t forget to notice the beauty of creation, and appreciate the remnant of God-fearing people still left on the earth.

…..

To the SDA:

The Pharisees were obsessed with the Sabbath. They even stalked Jesus to see if He would break it, and He did, repeatedly, to teach them that He is the Sabbath Rest of God – the Sabbath pointed to Him.

And Jesus told the Pharisees they were of their father the devil.

But, by your book, they would be okay because they didn’t just keep the Sabbath, they were more obsessed with it than they were with God.

They had a higher regard for the Sabbath than they did for God, or for the needs of those around them.

Sabbath and such laws became their god.

But Jesus said the Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.

It was never meant to become a religion you serve.

And you are doing the same as them, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel.

God is more interested in how we live every day than on one day of the week.

……

If you’ve ever met the true and living God, how could you think there was another one? Or anything that can compare?

……

I don’t believe in church, I believe in fellowship, because when you have that you have church.

…….

Many Christians in these last days are like spiritual zombies, they just don’t care about anything, like a blank space. You wonder what’s going on in there.

……

To Liberals:

We Christians find a lot of what you Liberals say to be disgusting and offensive, but we try and ignore it because we believe in free speech.

Isnt that fair enough?

Can it work both ways?

……

They will be “…cast into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”

Matthew 13:42

“Wailing” means screaming in pain.

The real thing.

“Oh, it can’t be a real fire!”

Whatever it is, they are screaming in pain.

That’s the point.

…….

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

Matthew 6:33

What things do you need to live?

Whatever they are they will be supplied if we keep the conditions: we seek first the Kingdom and His righteousness.

But if seeking the Kingdom is in second or third place in our order of priorities then we won’t have the things we need.

Some are seeking the Kingdom, but it’s not first in their priorities, it’s relegated lower down the list.

……

All His word is immutable, both His promise to save, and His warnings of judgment.

A warning is also an immutable word.

A warning of judgment is just as much an immutable promise as the promise of salvation.

……

Religions imagine what God is like.

But Jesus Christ is God in the flesh.

No more imagining.

……

The human race: An accidental, meaningless freak of nature?

Or designed for a purpose?

……

When ancient Israel had to face her enemies in battle the only issue that mattered was whether they were sanctified.

……

As amazing as the human body is, is that all you are? Is that all there is to you?

And when that body is dead and returns to dust, do you really believe you will no longer exist?

…….

True Grace never weakens responsibility.

But a false concept of grace does.

If we sum up the history of mankind, what do we conclude? A bunch of savages?

The Light came into the world and the world didn’t perceive Him.

…..

Find out what really matters and attend to that.

…..

The birds are singing.

They know something we don’t.

…..

Being truly converted to Christianity means Jesus Christ comes to live in you.

And, if He is in you, then there is not a single aspect of your life where it does not involve Him.

…….

You might think it’s hard to seek God with all your heart.

But haven’t you experienced that it’s harder not to?

Haven’t you learned how lousy it is to miss out on communion with Him?

……

The country elects a Conservative President, and he nominates a Conservative to the Supreme Court.

Did you expect him to nominate a Liberal?

Or, would you expect a Democrat President to nominate a Conservative?

Something funny going on.

……

The Constitution is in the news again and again.

A nation needs a Constitution. There has to be some absolutes.

Can you imagine what it would be like without one?

And each person needs a Constitution.

They need God’s Constitution, His word.

Can you imagine living without God’s word?

Can you imagine what would happen if you discarded it and decided to write your own “Constitution”?

You would be a Liberal.

…….

Compare the words of Jesus with anyone else’s words.

His words are living and powerful, and the absolute truth.

Any other words are merely what people think.

All scripture is the words of Jesus.

By the way.

That’s what defines scripture.

If it wasn’t His words it wouldn’t be scripture.

……

“And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, as upon us at the beginning. Then I remembered the word of the Lord, how He said, ‘John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ “

Acts 11:15-16

Note a distinction between Spirit baptism and water baptism.

…….

Life and joy and health and peace forever and ever. Forever and ever and ever and ever…..

…….

A person’s status in this world ceases the moment they die.

After that, they’re standing in line to be equitably judged by the Law of God in His Court.

I’m speaking to the unsaved here.

Will you be found guilty of breaking His laws?

Do you expect your court appearance to be different than if you were on trial down here for breaking the law?

…….

Regarding Senate hearings, and such like, the person of character has already won and doesn’t have to win anything.

……..

In Nazi Germany, Jews were considered sub-human and therefore okay to kill.

Today, babies in the womb are treated the same way.

…..

Don is just a man.

Joe is just a man.

You decide which one has more Christian values than the other.

Or are they both morally on the same page?

A mans policies reveal his values.

…….

We can’t use precise words here or we’ll be censored, but when a Liberal Christian approves of things the Bible calls sexual immorality, what they’re saying is they have no personal moral objection to it, and, if they themselves don’t participate in it, it’s only because of personal preference, because they don’t feel like doing it, and not because it is morally objectionable to them on the grounds of God’s word.

What do you think

……….

Let’s not mix religion and politics, so, go ahead, kill the babies????

……….

The hyper-spirtual Christian is a good person who loves the Lord and loves people, but they live more in their own world than in reality. In their zeal they push a spiritual truth to the point of distortion, and then that same truth is not found in the reality of their life.

……..

Some of the “wounds” Christians carry are self-inflicted, and without them coming to terms with that they won’t be healed.

……..

Some Christians are distracted from the reality of walking with Jesus, and are occupied with distractions.

Then we also get distracted with their distraction, like a chain reaction.

…….

The morality of killing babies is on trial in the US.

If someone wanted to kill you would you say to them,

Hmmm? That’s a very interesting political view!

And as it’s only a political view I guess you have the right to do it!

……..

A divided heart can’t trust or love Jesus Christ.

……

If someone doesn’t have faith, what have they got?

They’re just a shell of a person.

“These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God.”

Revelation 14:4-5

Let’s not ask ourselves if we are one of these 144,000 who will be redeemed from the earth as the firstfruits.

Let’s ask ourselves whether we have these same qualities in our lives?

That is, zero sexual sin, we follow Jesus wherever He goes, meaning, we actually do His work, and there is nothing that comes out of our mouth which offends God, and God does not find any fault with us.

I’m asking, is that what we want?

And if not, why wouldn’t you want to live that way?

…….

The Holy Spirit speaks:

“While Peter thought about the vision, the Spirit said to him, “Behold, three men are seeking you. Arise therefore, go down and go with them, doubting nothing; for I have sent them.”

Acts 10:19-20

Note, that in this case the message from the Holy Spirit was a simple direction, a revelation of God’s plan, not a revelation of truth or teaching.

The question is, today, do we have such a walk where we are as in tune with hearing this same voice of the same Holy Spirit as Peter was?

It surely makes a huge difference.

Live this way.

True Christians know the meaning of life: it’s Jesus Christ, who is now their life eternal.

And the Christian walk is always about interpreting this truth, or translating it into real life.

Jesus Christ is the meaning of life.

But is Jesus Christ the meaning of MY life?

Is He truly the reason and purpose for how I will live the rest of my life?

How does this truth translate into everyday living?

The mark of the Beast has to be BOTH physical and spiritual.

If it were only spiritual, then how could people not buy and sell without it?

And if it were only physical, such as a vaccine, then people could be tricked into taking it, not knowing what it was and what it signified.

But that makes a caricature of God, as if He is some monster who would allow good people to be tricked into being damned forever. It would make a total mockery of God.

Everything has consequences as to how it portrays God.

……..

Fake Christianity doesn’t make “mistakes”, rather, its true nature gets exposed.

They didn’t just mistakenly murder thousands of people, like, “Oops! Sorry about that!!”

Its true nature was being revealed.

……

Human nature is always far more concerned with what people think about us than what God thinks about us.

Jesus sets us free from that bondage.

…….

See Revelation 17.

To worship a stone, an animal, a tree, the sun or the moon, is one thing.

But to create an idol of Jesus Christ and worship this little “Jesus” you have made is far worse.

Fake Christianity is FAR, FAR worse in the sight of God than the most primitive paganism.

One night, she and a number of the orphan children were awakened by the sound of a beautiful choir singing. They went outside into the surrounding area to see where the sound was coming from, but there were no lights on anywhere, it was the middle of the night. They sat and listened in awe to the most beautiful choir you could imagine, in a language they didn’t know. Then it ended.

I asked the lady if she knew of any reason God would give them such a visitation. She said she had been through a very wearisome and trying time. It encouraged her, and the children certainly got something they will never forget.

The life of a man of God is given over to intercessory prayer and teaching the word of God.

This is how the New Testament describes true men of God.

If we look at the NT examples of intercessory prayer it was for real people by name, whom they were in relationship to, in some way.

Today it means something else. A flaky escape from reality, into a fantasy world.

Colossians 1:9, 4:12

1 Thessalonians 3:10

Quote

“On the last day, Jesus Christ will not be judging the quantity of our work, but the quality. Not how much we did. But what kind of work we did. Did it meet His standards?”

……

Simply pointing out a lie or a defamation of character doesn’t make you political, does it?

I think it means you’re not a dipstick.

……

The days are coming when people will get up in the morning, see the news, then flip to the Book of Revelation and say, ‘Now… which chapter are we in today?”

……

If I don’t trust the Holy Spirit to lead me, why should I trust myself to lead me?

…….

I wouldn’t discuss anyone I’m not praying for.

……

Those babies they’re murdering in the womb, they’re just as much a person as YOU were when you were in your mother’s womb, and just as much a person as YOU are now.

…….

What is happening in America was inevitable.

Christianity originally consisted of people who had been genuinely born again, converted, and turned from their past sinful life.

When Christianity became a society or culture, that is, something you’re born into and are expected to conform to culturally, then it developed into Babylon, a confusing mixture of good and evil, truth and lies, a contradiction, producing more and more morally confused people who claim to be Christians.

And Babylon is doomed, it must fall.

Babylon is not the world. It’s not the religions of this world. And it’s not the Antichrist.

It is a freakish, monstrous mixture of Christianity and pagan morals and values.

…….

The spiritual battle will rage until Jesus calls us home.

…….

Proceed with prayer.

……

Spiritually, there is only either victory or defeat.

……

If you are doing God’s will you never have to worry about God’s provision.

Lord, I will seek first your Kingdom and your Righteousness, and then I know I will have everything I need.

……..

One of the great obstacles preventing a sinner coming to Christ is that he wants to keep his identity and standing in the world, knowing that coming to Christ means he loses all that. But he doesn’t know how much he’s missing out on.

……

When a Christian has been living in a fake spiritual environment it can be painful for them to adjust to a reality church.

The best music on earth is only a poor reflection of the music in Heaven.

We live in a dystopian sci-fi world.

The news is like some B movie.

…….

If you’re out of fellowship then there’s no one who can speak reality into your life.

But that’s the reason many choose not to be in fellowship.

…….

With weight loss, the pain losing it will be proportional to the pleasure gaining it.

That’s fair enough.

The thing is to convert the pain in losing it into the pleasure of the benefit gained by losing it.

😁

……..

At least the physically blind man knows he is blind……

……..

We’ve gotta play the hand we’re dealt with.

Or stick our head in the sand.

……

a. What does the world think about it?

b. What do you think about it?

c. What does Jesus think about it?

  • Think about what?

Anything you name.

………

How would you rate your love for Jesus Christ on a scale of 10?

It’s a rhetorical question.

Commented

A mark of a true disciple is they want to love Jesus more than they do.

If we say we have great love for Him we’re probably self deceived to some extent.

God maintenances our lives.

And we should cooperate with His maintenance.

Therefore, each of us should know if we have left our first love, or whether materialism is replacing divine love in our heart.

If we believe God maintenances our life, we trust Him to faithfully reveal our shortcomings to us.

One of the great blessings of severe trials is that they reveal our actual love for Him, not a theoretical love.

…….

Jesus is eternal, and He gives eternal life to all who want to be with Him, which is only fitting.

……..

Whenever a person does something well they are glorifying God, whether they realize it or not, and whether they give Him the glory or not.

……..

Riots on the streets, and a riotous debate.

Just saw the debate. My thoughts:
a. Trump interrupted too much at times.
b. Moderator biased against Trump.
c. Trump seems more confident of what he says than Biden.
d. Trump’s mental acuity for facts and figures seems to be better than Biden’s.
e. Neither are statesmen.

My personal impression of the debate is that it shows that both of these are mere men, not demi-gods, not the messiah, and policy is the main thing, not a charismatic personality.

Future debates should have some kind of plexiglass cubicles which prevent a speaker being interrupted, in my opinion.

….

A. What can you do by yourself?

B. What can Christ do in you?

……..

Remember, actual policy issues matter more than who has the biggest mouth.

………

You have been given access to God by Jesus death and resurrection.

You can walk right in and call Him your Father, if you believe.

…….

In the Book of Acts those who were filled with the Holy Spirit spoke the Word of God with boldness.

Therefore we take it that very few a filled with the Holy Spirit today.

……..

You’ve gotta be stronger and shrewder than the devil or he’s going to destroy you, obviously.

“Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”

If Christ is in us then we should truly live by His word and overcome by faith.

……..

The devil used to tell people God is too kind to punish them for their sins, but this didn’t work, so now he tells them they don’t have any sins, and this one seems to be working.

……

Quote

“It’s not biblical faith to try to convince yourself that things are better than what they actually are. It is not biblical faith to work to make yourself feel good about what is not good. Biblical faith looks reality in the face and does not flinch.”

……..

Do you really believe that intelligent life came into being by itself, from nothing, without a Creator?

……

You will take care of us forever, Father.

……

If we know someone, but we’re not interested in praying for them, then we don’t really care about their soul.

……

If the mob doesn’t recognize the President, nor will it recognize election results, nor his nominee to the Supreme Court, nor the rulings of that Court, would be my guess.

………

Meaninglessness is simply to exist without Jesus Christ.

………

A good rule of thumb is to ask, What does it matter in Eternity?

……

Unstoppable Kingdom.

No question about it.

Just don’t disqualify yourself.

……..

Emptiness is simply not to have Jesus Christ.

……

Jesus Christ is greater than anyone can imagine.

But we don’t need to imagine, the evidence recorded in scripture is enough to convince us.

…..

What is this thing called “faith”?

Real, Biblical faith is the exact representation of the Person you have faith in.

You have put your faith in a Person.

So, then, what is this “faith” like?

It conforms to the Person you have put your faith in – it’s according to what you understand this Person is like.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

Who gives you every heart beat, every breath?

Winners don’t make excuses.

My first encounter with a demoniac after I got saved in Los Angeles was on Hollywood Boulevard, there was a fully demonized street preacher called “Brother Bob”, he would scream at passing cars, “You’re going to hell!”, he was dribbling saliva down his beard, dressed in a suit and waving a KJV Bible. I was walking down the pavement and he picked me out from the crowd and came running directly at me and stopped inches from my face, and he said, “I’m going to kill you!”. I said straight back to him, “Satan, you can’t touch me in Jesus name, because the greater one lives in me and you are defeated by the Blood of Jesus!”.

He looked pale, then ran away, it seems in fear.

…..

We should keep trusting the Lord because He loves us.

……

You feel happy for a believer if they already have a number of meaningful relationships and therefore don’t have the time to be your friend in practical terms, but you feel sad when the reason they don’t want to be a real friend is that they have no meaningful spiritual relationships or friendships in real life.
