Why are people surprised when the Bible is fulfilled?

……

Televangelists are anthropocentric: man is at the center, and God exists only to serve man and give him what he wants. This is how they interpret the Bible.

If you listen to people like Joel Osteen you might start thinking that you are the center of the universe, and God is not.

……

Justified by faith the moment you believe.

Sanctification a process over a lifetime.

…..

Liberal Fundamentalism

……

If we were able to live for Jesus without the Holy Spirit’s power and help then there would have been no need for Him to send the Holy Spirit.

…..

Christian, the Lord Jesus loves you, so everything’s going to be okay.

……

What if you’re telling people who are on the road to hell that nothing can ever separate them from the love of God? They will curse you forever.

…..

God is so good. You wouldn’t want to miss out on His goodness and get His wrath instead.

…..

Being a nice person doesn’t qualify us for Heaven.

Only Jesus’ precious Blood, poured out once and for all as a bloody, vicarious sacrifice for our sins, qualifies us for Heaven.

……

Quote

“The brevity of life in this world is a sermon for all who will listen: “Your life is a vapor. Take hold of what lasts. Take hold of God. Take hold of Christ. Take hold of the gospel.”

….

I wonder how many appreciate how great a thing salvation in Christ Jesus is?

For God to wipe out the debt we owe Him and then declare us righteous in His sight – How great is that?

For God to take a condemned sinner, then wash him clean in His own sacrificial blood, and present him faultless before His throne as a true son or daughter of God, as if he never sinned at all – How great is that?

“How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?” (Hebrews 2:3a)

  • Reports saying there are up to 5 new strains.
  • Some new characteristics: a person has mild symptoms for a few days, then it hits hard and they are dead within 2 days. Also, patients seem to be almost fully recovered then die of cardiac arrest (most likely a blood complication).
  • Reports that 1 in 5 have it, either symptomatic or asymptomatic.
  • Reports of people catching it who were totally isolated in quarantine.

……

People realize what all that “God stuff” was about the moment after they die.

……

Are people afraid to pray, “Thy will be done!”, because they’re afraid of what God’s will might turn out to be?

…….

A true Christian does what’s right because it’s the right thing to do, and not for a benefit.

……

Some Christians seem to rebound off one false teaching only to fall into another false teaching – out of the pan and into the fire. In fact, one of the strongest cults in the world can tell you everything that’s wrong with “the church”.

What we’re seeing now is that there’s no aspect or sphere of human existence where man is not prepared to defy God by rejecting His created order.

……

From the moment we wake up in the morning it is His day.

……

Intellectual arguments can’t be won or lost, you can only put out facts, and let those facts speak for themselves.

…..

If you’re born again you can never be alone because the Holy Spirit is in you.

…..

The Lord holds the future in His hands, and He holds you in His hands, if He is your Lord.

…..

Do you believe Him?

On Judgment Day will the Lord ask,

‘Look, was I asking too much that you simply believe me?’ ?

……

When a famous person dies, if they go to Heaven they’re not famous there, and if they go to Hell they’re not famous there, either.

……

The Lord Jesus knows exactly what will happen today, tomorrow, next month, next year…..

So, we don’t need to know. Sufficient is the fact that He knows and will guide us accordingly.

…..

Heaven is real.

And so is the other place.

…..

We are thanking and praising God for good rains. We had an unusual dry spell for over 6 months and finally our spring source dried up. We were down to our last drops of rainwater and were rationing, and then the heaven-sent rain came. Also, the spring has revived, but hopefully we won’t need it over the wet season as rainwater should be ample. Thanks to those who prayed.

……

What is Jesus like?

He’s exactly like He’s described in Scripture.

……

If there’s no physical labor we need to do immediately, we can labor in prayer.

……

Jesus of Nazareth never desired wealth, and so you would expect the same of all who truly follow Him.

…..

When Jesus returns and catches up His people to Himself they will have already left the world behind long before that.

……

Sin separates people from God and each other.

……

In this life, what do you love?

And, where does God fit into the picture?

…..

People of Christ, we are the mouthpieces of Christ.

Are we faithful mouthpieces?

Or muzzled mouthpieces?

A people silenced by fear, self interest or spiritual deadness?

……

Illegal immigrants are granted privileges the homeless don’t have. It’s a political game.

…….

Jesus repeatedly warned of a burning hell, and said if people don’t repent, that’s where they’ll go.

Today, people smugly laugh at the idea.

Or is it a nervous laugh?

……

Many don’t know the Book of Revelation is unfolding right now. For many, it is unthinkable it could happen in their lifetime, and they assume it must always be in the distant future. And, in the past, there’s been so many false alarms about end time events and date setting for Jesus’ return that many have become jaded about the promise of His return.

…….

How many years have you existed?

It’s nothing compared to eternity.

……

If God’s will is always done anyway, why did the Lord Jesus teach us to pray, ‘Thy will be done!’ ? There would be no need to pray that.

God is Sovereign, He rules over all, and there’s a good and perfect will of God which needs to be apprehended.

…..

One of the joys of Heaven will be to meet people who are there because God used you as an instrument to bring the Gospel to them.

…..

The person who truly understands human nature will run to Jesus and prostrate themselves before Him, and beg Him to change their nature. And He will. He’s the only one who can.

……

Wokeness and Fundamentalist Islam have this in common, that they suffocate any free thinking, and vilify all dissenters.

The new religion of Wokeness tells you what to think. Your own thoughts are not allowed. It’s perhaps the most pervasive thought control ever carried out by man.

……

Are you very, very confident in your belief that God doesn’t exist? Or, do you have doubts about your belief in His non-existence?

……

The nature of an idol is illusory: people think it’s wonderful, but it’s nothing.

……

Scripture records that when Jesus walked the earth very few people could see who He was. Even his own family didn’t know who He was till much later. Virtually none of the people He grew up with knew who He was. Imagine, living next door to the Son of God and not knowing it?

They didn’t see a guy with a permanent phony smile, flashing his teeth to everyone, they saw a “man of sorrows and acquainted with grief”, and yet some saw a Man, “full of grace and truth”.

So, if the majority couldn’t see who Christ was, chances are they also can’t see Christ in you today.

And yet some just might.

……

No one has ever helped God out, and God has never helped anyone do their own will.

…….

Commented

There are true and false tongues (speaking or praying in a language you don’t know).

Perhaps the majority are false, and yet there is still a genuine gift of tongues.

Anyway, we need to base our beliefs on scripture, not on experiences or testimonies of peoples experiences, or even what we’ve not experienced.

Because it would be wrong to believe a gift has ceased, not on scriptural evidence, but because you have never experienced it.

That would be to place experience above Gods word.

……

There’s a dilemma, that when we speak of Jesus and Salvation, people invariably think of “the church”, and the dilemma is that, usually, they have a false concept of what “the church” is: they might think of stained glass windows, costumes, televangelists and private jets, charlatans, popes… or bad experiences they’ve had with “Christians”. So, realize that none of that stuff has anything to do with you personally knowing Jesus Christ and being saved. It’s a smokescreen, a distraction from seeing the real Jesus, the Son of God, risen from the dead and coming back shining brighter than the sun.

A teacher could sell a book exposing false prophets and the Prosperity Gospel, and then make financial gain from that book, making them also a false prophet.

…….

Those who pray for you might be your best friends.

……

Every time I went to the Lord for help, He helped me.

If Jesus is helping you, that’s good enough.

……

We destroyed our soul, and we can’t recreate what we’ve destroyed, but Jesus Christ can make all things new.
