Today’s Tweets

(Sorry for the delay, no internet)

Been saying this for years, that if you attend a church or fellowship it’s time to “stop the show” and get real. Speak up. Don’t just sit there like a dummy going through the syrupy Hillsong songs, and the same old routine. Speak up. If a church is spiritually dead it’s because its members are. The spiritually dead can’t change the status quo, and they wouldn’t have the courage to do it. Church is supposed to be a corporate business meeting with God. Read 1 Cor. 14.

……

The near future belongs to the violent, the pushy, the big mouths, the ones with no conscience left. But it won’t last long.

…..

The world is going to see the Bible “come to life” before their eyes in the coming years.

The message of the last book of the Bible is that God is very, very angry with mans rebellion against Jesus Christ, and yet He still calls all to come to Christ and flee the wrath to come.

Everything which can be shaken will be shaken, so that those things which can’t be shaken will remain, scripture says.

According to the Bible things are going to get much worse. We can thank the Lord for the warning and draw on His grace, or we can ignore His warning and get lost in the fantasy world of popular preachers.

……

Prayer:

You are our Father, we will not be ashamed.

…..

The imputed righteousness of Christ and practical righteousness are in harmony because Christ both imparts imputed righteousness and produces practical righteousness, so that a person is not theoretically righteous, but actually righteous, in reality.

For example, could a practicing criminal truthfully say, “See, I believe I have the righteousness of Christ imputed to me by faith, so nothing I do can add to or subtract from that righteousness!” ?

Unrighteous living is unbelief, not faith.

If the imputed righteousness of Christ is not evident in practical righteousness, then it is absent in that person, no matter what they profess.

……

It would be pointless to try and debate human rights with an Atheistic political regime, because they believe man is simply a highly evolved animal, and therefore there are no moral absolutes.

……

Anyone who’s read the Bible knows how it all ends.

And the disciple knows the end of this present world is just the glorious beginning for them.

……

Why wouldn’t we seek the Lord with all our heart?

Any valid reason not to seek Him with all our heart?

What could be preventing us doing that?

……

As Christians we are more likely to get sidelined by a lawful idol than a forbidden one. But it’s unlawful to make even a good thing into an idol.

……

If anyone understands what real racism is, it would have to be the Jewish people.

……

I like the timelessness of God. He hasn’t changed since He created the Universe.

…..

Those who care about your soul are the ones who really love you.

……

Jesus said to discern and proclaim the difference between right and wrong, but not to look down on those who are wrong.

Modern Christianity has this blurred.

……

When someone raises an objection to the Gospel by saying Christians have been responsible for many wars and the subjugation of people you can tell them that such “Christians” were not Christians by the definition Jesus Christ gave of what constitutes being one of His followers. When Christianity became cultural and political then multitudes identified as Christian who were not Christian at all by Christ’s definition, as is the case today. Jesus said that anyone who doesn’t forsake all to follow Him is not His disciple.

There’s two ways of looking at the history of the past two thousand years: You can look at it as the history of Christian culture, and, events like the Inquisition and Crusades, as the history of a crazed religious cult which borrowed the name of Christ, with no relation to the true Christian faith.

For example, Indians tend to think of the former British Empire as representing Christianity, but that’s a mistake. Christianity became a culture, and empires sprang out of that culture.

True Christianity has never been cultural.

Jesus taught that one must be born again.

Just following Christian customs and traditions doesn’t make you born again, it doesn’t make you a Christian.

…..

A relevant question for Christians everywhere:

Are you going to be a part of the great falling away?

…..

Big mistake to look at Jesus’ words as if it were merely just another philosophy, religion, or just a different way of looking at things. If that’s how you see it, then you don’t believe what He said, and don’t believe Him.

…..

Someone comments:

“If we are genuinely saved then we cannot “lose” our salvation. If that were the case then that means that our salvation is not by grace alone but by our works as well. Ephesians 2:8-9. All false religions are works based. Only in Christianity does God save us through His work, not ours.”

Reply:

Yes, scripture says a person is justified by faith, not by works.

And if they cast that faith away they certainly can’t be justified by faith, if they no longer have genuine faith in the sight of God. (It might be just a hollow confession, but inside their heart has been hardened against God, evident by their lifestyle)

So, works don’t justify a person, but if a justified by faith person returns to a lifestyle of sin their heart becomes hardened through unbelief, the scripture says.

So, faith will save, and unbelief (with it’s evil fruit) will condemn.

“Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” (Heb. 3:12-15)

Grace and responsibility are in perfect harmony. Grace does not contradict responsibility, and responsibility does not contradict grace. Everything is grace, and if we turn away we’ll be lost.

If you ever wanted to emigrate to the US, now is the time. You can just walk right in.

……

Was sharing last night:

Jesus, alone, is right. Our faith is in this fact, alone – faith in a Person. It’s not in whether we think or feel we are right, or some guru or leader is right, or any religion is right. Everything stands or falls in relation to the Person of Jesus Christ, alone. And eternal life is to know Him, and His Father, the Bible says.

Someone asks you, ‘But, how can you know for sure that you are right?’

Answer: It’s not about whether I am right. It’s about whether Jesus is right. It’s about whether He was telling the truth or not.

I believe He was telling the truth.

Or… someone asks, ‘How can you think your way is the only way?’

Answer: No, I don’t have a ‘my way’. Jesus said He is the only way. Either He is correct, or He’s mistaken. I believe He is correct.

…….

God gave you a life for a reason.

Believe it or not.

And that reason is to do with Him.

……

Death doesn’t change ones standing with God, whether one is in right relationship to Him or not.

……

Totally faithful is the standard for faithfulness.

Totally pure is the standard for purity.

…..

Young people can really be encouraged when we acknowledge their achievements.

……

Politicians who relax the rule of law when it is politically expedient to do so are enemies of the state, and history will show them as the frauds that they are.

……

On your scale of morality, how do you determine whether racial stereotyping or prejudice is worse than any other form of stereotyping or prejudice?

Wokeism is a complex moral religion in it’s own right.

……

To disobey Christ is to defy the King and Ruler of the Universe.

It won’t work out well for you.

……

Not churchy, but believe in the church, as defined in the New Testament.

…..

Remember the CCP are atheists. They have no conscience.

……

If we have the love of God, we have great love.

If we have the wisdom of God, we have great wisdom.

……

“We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” (2 Cor. 5:8)

All the millions who have died in the Lord over the last 2000 years are now present with the Lord. They are all still young, even though some are 2000 years old. Some of them are the greatest minds the world has known. Some are great heroes of the faith. Many are unsung heroes of the faith. All have a great story to tell of God’s faithfulness.

It will be great to meet them and hear their stories.

…..

“To forget the Holocaust would not only be dangerous, but also incredibly offensive.”

…….

Look at nature. There’s a lesson in God’s will. It only exists because He willed it. It is an expression of His will, and therefore a portrait of Himself.

…….

In the spiritual, as in the natural, anything not fed will eventually die.

……

Spiritual and Supernatural are synonyms.

Everything about the true Christian life is supernatural.

The supernatural is most often thought of as the impossible.

But, buyer beware because the devil is also spiritual and supernatural.

……

A world figure just passed away.

It reminds us of our own mortality.

And that there is a Judgment Day coming.

……

Even in our wonderful joy in Christ we are not to forget those who are suffering.

…….

More on the Sovereignty of God:

It’s an incomprehensingly amazing fact that the Father knows that a sparrow just died somewhere deep in the Amazon rainforest. Jesus taught that.

He gives life and breath to every creature. He sends the rain on the just and the unjust, scripture says.

He causes even your enemies to be at peace with you if you reverence Him.

He prevents the devil from destroying you, but still allows the devil to attack you so you can manifest the glorious, all powerful triumph of Christ over him.

He Sovereignly oversees world events:

“For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.” (Rev. 17:17)

……

There’s only two scenarios:

Lost or saved.

……

We have to use our free will, then, after using it, we realize it was by grace that we made the right choice. And if we make the wrong choice, it’s not because grace failed to empower us to choose. There’s always this tension at play.
