Today’s a “holy day”, so, time to get spiritual?

It encapsulates the whole problem with religion.

…..

“Racial division is driven by politicians”

…..

Obviously, neither Biden or Harris will show their faces at the southern border because even they can see the hypocrisy of showing up at an humanitarian crisis which they helped create.

You wouldn’t expect politicians to acknowledge the failure of a policy when it would be tantamount to acknowledging their stupidity or corruption.

…….

What do you think? Did He rise again? Or was it all a hoax?

You might say, It’s impossible for someone to rise from the dead!

Yes, of course it is.

But everything about Jesus life was “impossible”. That’s why people followed Him, because He did the impossible.

What do you do with that, if you witness the “impossible”?

What happens if the “impossible” happens to you?

……

Those who have the grace to live for Christ also have the grace to suffer or die for Him.

……

Possible reasons why a Christian doesn’t share God’s word:

  • They’re not interested
  • God’s word hasn’t deeply touched their heart, and is not living in them powerfully
  • They’re afraid they won’t be cool, that some may not like it
  • They fear rejection
  • They don’t care about others
  • They think it is for others to do, not them
  • They are not filled with the Holy Spirit

Etc. ……

……

The Bible says everything is God’s property. The Maker retains the ownership rights. The problem is most people can’t stand the idea, and they’ve been deceived into living independent of God.

……

The rioting and burning goes on in Portland, and the authorities have the power to put an end to it today, so, we assume, they are allowing it to continue for political purposes.

…..

2 Corinthians 15 records that Jesus resurrection was witnessed by over five hundred of His followers at one time. These people comprised the church in Israel at its inception. So, the church was not founded on just a few who claimed to have witnessed the resurrection, but on many hundreds of such witnesses. The nucleus of the church didn’t have to trust someone else’s testimony, they saw with their own eyes. On this basis the Christian faith sprung into life.

…….

The eternal Kingdom of Christ will be a very real society based on love. Love will permeate everything and everyone – every thought, every word and action – the perfect and Holy love of Christ.

…….

Our repentance doesn’t earn us salvation, and yet it’s one of the signs we are saved.

……

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”

(James 1:5)

Imagine a Christianity where no one was lacking wisdom? It would be amazing.

…….

The fear of Voter ID is the fear that each person will only be able to cast one ballot. Of course it is.

……

You can’t over estimate how important the resurrection of Christ is, especially when you consider no one else resurrected – every founder of religion or whatever died and didn’t resurrect, so they’re still dead.

……

In theory, if every person on earth followed Jesus Christ you would have a perfect world. Every social problem would be eliminated, and even religion would be obsolete.

…….

Republicans should focus on convincing more Christians to vote, and it will indeed be a landslide. It will be such an overwhelming majority as to cancel out election fraud. Stats show that a significant portion of evangelicals didn’t vote. Please pass this on to Don.

This subject gets a little over complicated unnecessarily.

During the course of a lifetime the average person suffers a variety of ailments, and they often get over them and get healed, by various means, and sometimes healed fast, and sometimes slow, but overall they can say the Lord kept them from dying before their time. The Lord may have used various means to preserve their life.

Important to know that the essence of true faith isn’t focused on our SELF.

Simply trusting God that all will be well is just as legitimate as the person who has the gift of faith to be instantly healed.

See…. what of a Christian who is obsessed with avoiding sickness, constantly making positive confessions, etc. Constantly trying to increase their faith so they won’t get sick.

They might be still obsessed with themselves, and not have genuine faith at all.

Sometimes an obsession with healing betrays fear.

How many in the “faith” movement are actually neurotic and its simply a way to calm their nerves?

……

In many ways, scripture defines faith and salvation in terms of repentance:

“God is not willing any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. “

……

One thing it means for God to be your Father is He takes care of you as His own child.

…….

What we see today is selective morality.

…….

“Christ demands first place. There’s no room on the throne of your heart for two gods.”

  • Billy Graham

……

The greatest caring is to care about someone’s soul.

……

When Christ is truly our goal, and our motivation to that end, then we never lose motivation in life.

……..

In Christ we see the greatest was also the most humble.

…….

If Christ is our life, then, all of our life, and all of our days, are His.

…….

We can’t stress how bad it would be for you to die without Christ. Jesus taught of conscious, eternal punishment – never ending suffering for those who die in their sins. Please take Jesus Christ seriously.

The sovereignty of God is surely not the property of John Calvin.

Simply put, it’s the belief that God has absolute authority over all creation, therefore, anything that does happen, happens only because He allowed it. It doesn’t necessarily mean He is the author of the event, but it is under His authority. He could stop or prevent it if He chose to.

The other alternative would be that events happen which God tried to prevent but failed to.

That God is in control of everything doesn’t mean He is the author of everything.

Sovereignty is a massive comfort for believers.

Continued….

Someone, then, invariably asks, If everything that happens is because God allows it, then that makes God responsible for the evil in this world by allowing it?

Answer:

Here it gets interesting, when a person has the audacity to start schooling God on what He should allow or not allow.

God allowed us all to sin.

Even as Christians we’ve all disobeyed God many times.

He allowed us to disobey.

What would it have been like if we tried to disobey but God overpowered us against our will and stopped us?

It would make us robots.

He gave us a free will to choose because, then, we are no longer programmed robots, but beings who can love Him through our choices, choosing what pleases Him.

……

Find out what it means to be a worshiper of God, and be one.

…..

A favorite quote from the film, Citizen Kane: “Making a lot of money is not hard to do if all you want to do is make a lot of money.”

What do you really want in this life?

If all you really wanted was a lot of money then you would have no life. This desire would destroy you as a human being. You would be a shell of a person.

Like a TV evangelist. And like so many who hate TV evangelists. They’re more buddies than they realize.

……

Decades fly by.

…….

What would be the point of talking to God if He didn’t talk back?

A disciple is always happy doing the Lord’s work because they’re a disciple – that’s what they are now.

Normally, when people look to the future and think about what the rest of their life will be like they’re looking at 40, 20, 10 or less years – that’s the limit, and whatever their life is going to be is confined to this brief timeframe. Of course, they may only have days to live and not know it.

But when a Christian looks forward they see eternity. They see themselves living forever. It is just as real as this present life.

……

The crucifixion was as barbaric as anything can be barbaric.

We are supposed to view our own sins through that lens of the Cross, and understand how barbaric and God hating WE are, and receive His amazing grace, paid in full on that Cross.

……

A Liberal says, What’s wrong with doing something if you’re not hurting anyone else?

Two reasons, one, you’re destroying yourself, and that’s wrong because God gave you life, and you have no right to destroy what He created, and, two, you are spitting in the face of Jesus Christ, and counting His sacrifice for your sins on the Cross as a worthless sacrifice.

The Bible says God’s message to the world is about a Man, bloodied and bruised, and nailed to a cross.

Have you understood the Message yet?

…..

We owe our existence to God.

Are you happy He decided that human beings should exist?

It was His idea.

……

Where is the presence of God?

Inside the true disciple of Jesus Christ.

This is the Gospel.

……

The idea that only people of a certain skin color are racist, is, itself, a racist idea.

It seems everyone and everything is racist now, except for those who push this ideology. So, you must become one of them, because you wouldn’t want to be a racist, now, would you?

When a white man commits a crime they make sure you know he was white, because his color is an issue, but when a black man does the same thing, his color is not mentioned because his color is not an issue. Can you see a particular ideological narrative being pushed here? You might say you’re not “religious” but unaware you’ve been conditioned into accepting a false ideological narrative.

I believe “hate crimes” don’t exist. An equitable judiciary would only see “crime”, not “hate crimes”. Whether a person had hate is irrelevant if they have committed a crime. And skin color never needs to be mentioned. Not too long ago, when people had more intelligence, race, color or religion had virtually no place in the reporting and treatment of crime.

……

Israel is the only nation whose historical existence is punctuated again and again by supernatural events. The truth is better than fiction.

One of the reasons Israel is hated so much is because it is the most visible reminder that the Bible is true. And, that the Bible is true is the scariest thing for modern man to contemplate.

…….

This planet is teeming with life, but every living thing dies. Jesus announced there will be a new earth for His followers where nothing ever dies. Death will be unknown.

It was His death which destroyed death, and His resurrection which gives eternal life.

……

If you had been there to watch Jesus heal the blind, the cripples, and raise the dead, would you also have become one of His disciples?

…..

The Incarnation denotes the preexistence of Christ, and also that it was irreversible, and not a temporary state.

……

Easter.

Not just any man suffering horrific cruelty at the hands of man, but God in the flesh hanging on a Cross. Now, why would God incarnate end up on a Cross? Why would the Father be willing to sacrifice His Son? Why would the Son be willing to be sacrificed? What for? Trying to prove something? Or was God making a transaction within Himself?

Everything we NEED to know about God is contained in the answers to these questions.

And everything we need to know about religion is answered by these answers.

……

An idol worshiper is simply one who worships anything other than God, and the worst kind of idol worshiper is the one who claims to be a Christian.

……..

May you be enriched in the knowledge of Christ today.

……

Do satanists know they’re backing a loser?

……

Our pride is not worth defending. Defend something worthwhile.

……

Christian, the Holy Spirit wants to guide your every step.

……..

A Christian prayer:

“Lord Jesus, thank you for washing away my sins in your own blood! Without you washing away my sins I could never have come to God, I would have remained unclean, guilty and defiled, cut off from your goodness and love, and deserving your punishment. But you had mercy on me. Thank you for changing me from a rebel to a son. Thank you for giving me eternal life.”

……

(Eph. 6:10-20)

Verse 12 says the spiritual “rulers of the darkness of this age” are fighting against true Christians.

They rule everyone who doesn’t know Christ. They used to rule us, but Christ set us free and He now rules in our hearts. But they desperately try to bring us again under their power so that we do what they say and disobey the Lord.

What a great victory Christ has wrought for us! We must “be strong in the Lord and the power of His might” by heeding the truth here.
