True repentance is to look into the face of the Lord Jesus and leave everything He hates far behind.

True repentance is not legalism because legalism is one of the things we need to repent of.

…..

God made us for Himself, and He also made us for one another.

…..

Replied to Costi Hinn:

In 1 Cor. 14 Paul says he speaks in tongues more than all of them, and yet he doesn’t do it in church.

Where then did he do it?

Obviously, in private.

For many Christians, 1 Corinthians chapter 14 is irrelevant to them because it doesn’t fall within the realm of their experience, and that’s a faulty way to approach God’s word.

……

The Lord Jesus plainly taught that unrepentance will cause people to forfeit their souls.

At that time no one felt they needed to get Jesus to define or clarify what sexual sin is.

True Christians define sin as Jesus and the NT defines it.

So, when society flaunts it, true Christians remind and warn society about the consequences of their sin.

This freedom of speech and faith is what is being eroded by the Left.

……

Christian, we want the kind of boldness which love produces.

……

Remember this word, “adoration”.

Christian, you have the capacity to adore God, to hold Him in adoration, to truly love Him for who He is and what He has done.

…..

For the true Christian, their life is entirely spiritual because God’s Spirit indwells them: meaning, everything concerning their life is perceived through their spirit.

“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.” (1 Cor. 2:14-15)

…..

Life, by definition, is essentially spiritual, the only question is, which spirit?

……

The only basis by which God can forgive us is on the basis that His Son, Jesus Christ, shed His blood and died in our place, and it’s on this basis alone, and it’s wonderful.

…..

Oftentimes deception begins in Christians the moment they think they are special.

You might say, “I am special!!!”.

Yes, everyone is special, so you’re no more special than anyone else.

This is the problem in thinking you are special.

……

Either, God has forgiven all our sins or none of our sins.

This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that you can know you are fully forgiven.

Obviously, it would be futile to be partly forgiven.

……

Someone might be evil, but you don’t know if they will come to the Lord later.

…..

The state of the world is much worse in the sight of God than how we see it, because scripture says His eyes are too holy to look upon sin, whereas none of us can claim such holiness.

…….

If we accept God’s word then we have peace.

If we don’t accept it then we should be conflicted inside because we don’t accept it, unless a person is deceived and has a false peace in believing a lie.

……

Where Christians often get confused on this matter of “God speaking” today is they don’t delineate between truth and specific guidance.

It’s better to say that God, through His Spirit, communicates to our spirit both the truth of Gods word and practical, specific guidance or leading, and these are obviously distinct and not the same thing.

God is constantly communicating by His indwelling Spirit with the person who knows Him, but, even so, it would be foolish and conceited to say, ‘God told me!’ concerning every matter.

We can call this communication an inner witness, and it’s what Jesus meant when He said, ‘My sheep hear my voice”.

……

We all want to have great faith, and yet we want to have great faith for that which is His will and plan, and not great faith for what is not His will.

So, it’s okay to be lacking faith for something which is not His will.

…..

The only spiritual help we can be to others is to help them understand the truth of God’s word, help them to know Him, to hear His voice and be taught and led by Him.

……

Jesus Christ knows our faith because He knows our heart and mind, because He lives in us who are His.

……

Jesus Christ…

Leads us
Guides us
Loves us
Provides for us
Forgives us
Empowers us
Teaches us
Delivers us
Warns us
Corrects us
Encourages us
Heals us

Sanctifies us

Etc…

…..

No one can add to what Christ has done, and yet our actions can be a denial or rejection of what He has done.

…..

“Preach Christ, don’t preach morality.”

This statement can easily be misunderstood.

If we faithfully preach Christ we will also remind people of all His moral commands, just as He commanded us to do: “…teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you…” (Matt. 28:20a)

If a preacher preaches Christ but omits to preach what He commanded then they’re not preaching Christ at all.

…..

Would you say the greatest thing in your life is your fellowship with God?

……

God owns everything, and we just borrow it for a while.

…..

In truly serving Christ there’s nothing we should expect to gain for ourselves if we are faithful servants.

…..

Jesus said, “Come to me!”. He never said, “Come to Christianity!”.

It’s not about getting a religion, it’s about experiencing God transform you into a new creation.

……

If Christ is not your Savior and you died today then you would have to face the Judgment Throne of God with no Savior.

……

If man-made religious traditions were that good then they would be in God’s word.

……

God’s word decides right from wrong.

I wouldn’t trust anyone else to decide that.

And I certainly wouldn’t trust myself to decide that.

…..

What would you have against entrusting your soul into the hands of Jesus Christ?

Who else could you entrust to keep your soul forever?

….

To speak for Christ one must first hear Christ speaking to them.

……

Faith is not dependent on all the things we have come to use and depend on in modern life because all the great heroes of faith, foremost the Lord Jesus, had none of the things we depend on.

……

Our actual relationship to God is our actual faith.

True Christian faith is to know God, not faith in a God whom you don’t know, for that’s not faith.

……

If you are without Christ you could drop into Hell at any moment of the day or night.

……

When a society doesn’t have the love of God it is not a civilized society.

……

Christ Jesus clothes us in His righteousness, imputes to us His righteousness, and works His righteousness in us.

……

We must not forget to thank God for everything and fully acknowledge all that He has done for us.

If He had not “done for us” where would we be?

It’s true.

…..

Looking at the democratic forms of government today, we can look at it and understand that God, in His Sovereignty, gave a great responsibility to people in that they can have a say in who will govern them, knowing that secular governments are instituted by God as a temporary measure so that this world can keep functioning and not collapse into anarchy.

I think it’s a sign of Gods judgment that many Christians don’t appreciate the freedoms they have, not seeming to understand history, that historically the freedom they enjoy today is a very rare thing.

In part, the rise of democracy in the western world was due to the influence of Christianity, and the publication and influence of the Bible played a large role, as prior to that most government was despotic and people had little or no rights.

…….

God has no beginning or end, He has lived forever, and yet He is not old because He can’t age, He is timeless. Looking back into eternity past, He was there, and looking into eternity future, He is there, and those in Christ will be with Him there for eternity, for Jesus promised eternal life to all who love Him.

……

Pick any person on earth at random and ask, What does this person’s life amount to?

One day it will be fully known and understood, the Bible says.

One very good indicator of the spiritual condition of people is how they treat the elderly.

……

It’s not our job to tell people they’re on the way to hell, as if it’s merely our opinion or up to us to decide, but to present God’s word to them so they can judge for themselves whether they’re going to Heaven or Hell.

……

Whoever you are, you can be reconciled to God if you want to be. This is what Jesus promised.

……

What I pray for all my friends, and enemies, is they receive the same grace and forgiveness which I’ve received.

…..

Those who go to Heaven have eternity to enjoy living there, and eternity to really get to know the Father and the Lamb.

……

Man isn’t man’s idea. He is not his own creation. It is God who thought up the concept of human beings.

……

The Christian life is only possible by the power of the Holy Spirit.

…..

The classic, timeless storybook motif of “good versus evil” is played out in the political narrative today, except it’s reversed, and the “good guys” are those with no sense of morality.

……

The whole purpose behind CRT, BLM etc. is it’s a fake political manoevre to falsely paint Conservatives as racists and therefore increase the Democrat vote, to then save the nation from these imaginary racists. It’s fake.

……

Natural love might be enough to love our friends, but it takes the love of Christ to love and pray for our enemies.

……

Racism is disgusting.

Falsely accusing of racism is equally disgusting.

…..

Jesus said, count the cost. It could cost you your life. It will certainly cost you the loss of most things you once held dear. And that’s okay if He is with you.

……

We can’t really know what really matters unless we know Jesus Christ and understand His words.

……

A true Christian believes what Jesus Christ said.

Yes?

…..

Jesus Christ gives you the option of living in fantastic luxury and super rich opulence forever, or suffering forever, but most people choose the second option by virtue of refusing the first.

……

Do you consider every person to have equal value and importance in the sight of God?

……

When it’s illegal for Christians to share their faith with others, then it should also be illegal for people of any faith to share their faith, or illegal for Atheists to share their philosophy on life, or illegal for any kind of beliefs, values or philosophy to be shared. Liberal or Woke philosophy would also have to be illegal.

Equity. Remember?

On the matter of the difference between the authority of scripture and the authority of the church, when we analyze the nature and use of authority in the NT church we can see no disparity between that and the authority of scripture.

The churches had virtually no authority over people’s lives except in matters of disciplining the unrepentant by shunning them from fellowship until they are restored to the Lord.

In practical life we see virtually no authority over people’s lives.

But of course, spiritual authority doesn’t usually work by coercion, but by sacrificial love.

Divine authority was expressed through the power of the Gospel and the Spirit, but not a temporal authority, such as was later grasped as churches began to apostasize in the second and third centuries.

One misconception about Christian authority is to fail to grasp that it is primarily the authority to love and to forgive others.

It is Christ giving us His authority over our lives, so we take authority over our thoughts, words and actions in His name.

There are “churches” in India which have virtually total control of peoples lives. The “pastor” decides whom they will marry. They must keep the “pastor” updated on how much they are earning so he can calculate the 10% of it he comes and collects from them each month. Etc.

……

Why do people cry out Jesus! when something bad happens?

Why no one else’s name?

Is it that the name of Jesus affects their conscience in some way?

Notes on 1 Thessalonians 5:12-24

a. Recognize those who teach God’s word among you. For these to be able to personally correct people they must personally know them. We are to esteem them on the basis of what they do, and not on the basis of them having a position. “Over” you in the Greek means “before” you. It’s not someone ruling over you, but someone going before you as a guide, in the sense of having more experience. A guide need not be a dictator.

b. All the brethren are charged with caring for one another and speaking into one another’s life.

c. Let your replies to critics be respectful.

d. It’s always right to rejoice in the Lord as an expression of your faith.

e. Never give up praying for folks or things you need.

f. In all circumstances give thanks to God for His faithfulness.

g. Quenching the Holy Spirit is like grieving Him. It metaphorically speaks of putting out a fire by throwing buckets of water on it. Things we do or don’t do can have the effect of putting out the spiritual flame in our heart and turning us cold. If we oppose the Spirit or ignore the Spirit then it is like extinguishing the Holy fire in our heart. In this sense, so much of what falls short of glorifying God, and spiritual weakness is simply due to negligence and quenching the Spirit. The person and the church which does not quench the Spirit will be a powerhouse.

h. Don’t despise prophecies, but test them, keep the good, and reject what’s not. If the gift of prophecy had ceased then Paul would not have admonished them not to despise prophecies.

i. Abstain from every form of evil. Know all the forms evil can present itself in. “Abstain” means, “No thanks, that’s not for me”.

j. God will sanctify all our being: spirit, soul and body, and present us blameless before His throne. Here, the imputed righteousness of Christ is manifest in practical righteousness, so the practical doesn’t contradict the imputed.

……

True Christianity is to talk directly to God through His Son, Jesus Christ, with no intermediaries, formalities, formulas, procedures, traditions, superstitions, and certainly no idols…

…..just as you like people to talk to you.

You want them to talk to you, not do all the other stuff, which would imply they’re actually trying to avoid talking directly with you.

……

Some people say, “Last night on the streets we led 50 people to accept Christ”, but the big question is, Has Christ accepted them?

He will accept them if they truly come in faith, turning away from and renouncing their sinful life.

But He won’t accept them if they’re unrepentant.

A person is playing a dangerous game with God to “accept Jesus” but not be truly sorry for their sins and repent.

……

Any data which has political fallout is “misinformation”.

……

If we’re not earnestly seeking and expecting the Kingdom of God then we’re probably content with some other kingdom.

……

That man can appreciate the beauty of creation is one of the proofs of the existence of God.

If there were no God then the universe would have no meaning, and therefore the concept of beauty would not exist, because if something has no meaning, how can it be beautiful?

Basically, how do you know something is beautiful? How do you know anything?

If all creation accidentally came together by itself, then how do you know anything if nothing has meaning or purpose, and it’s all just random chance?

We’re supposed to look at the complexity and beauty of nature, and the vastness of the universe, and understand something about God.

……

God doesn’t recognize any spiritual labels because there is only one body of Christ. He only sees the Blood of Christ which redeemed us. There is only one Spirit of God.

……

A central tenet of the Bible is there is only one God, and no other god exists.

There are no lesser gods, hierarchies of gods, etc.

Either a person knows this one, true God, or they don’t.

Jesus taught us to call Him, “Father”, for Jesus is the only begotten Son of the Father.

Jesus taught that, through faith in Him, we have direct access to the only one, true God.

We can even call Him our Father.

…..

“…Men always ought to pray and not lose heart”

Luke 18:1b

…..

God can, and does, use anyone to fulfill His purpose, even people who don’t know Him. He’s amazing.

…..

True Christian faith seizes the moment, seizes the day, and seizes the future on into eternity.

……

The Democrat party knows it must preserve its ability to cast fraudulent votes if it is to survive, so it is calling moves to eliminate such fraud as “suppression of voting rights”. Give a list of countries where illegal immigrants and people who are not willing to show their ID are allowed to vote? Of course most blacks have photo IDs, so it’s not oppressing them to require them to have it, it’s simply preventing fraudulent voting.

……

Hitler, Stalin, Mao… they all did “fact checking” and made sure there was no “misinformation”, after all, they should know, right?

……

How it works is, we keep putting the truth of God’s word out there, and it speaks to some people. Even if it doesn’t speak to most, if it just speaks to a few, and those few hear the Lord speaking to them, then it’s worth it, because even one person is worth it.

…..

Nothing we do or don’t do can cause God to love us. His love is umerited. And yet if we don’t repent we’ll die.

When God righteously judges a person it’s not because His love for them ceased – it’s not because their sin caused God to stop loving them.

It’s not to say ‘positive and negative’ don’t exist.

Its that there are more accurate terms, such as ‘faith or unbelief’.

It’s more accurate or true to understand something in relation to God, rather than thinking of it independently of God.

‘Positive or negative’ is also a weak way of describing things because the perception of what constitutes ‘positive or negative’ varies.

To some, truth which they don’t care to hear might be perceived as ‘negative’, and a falsehood they want to hear, ‘positive’.

Typically, such people divide the Bible up into ‘positive’ verses and ‘negative’ verses.

They follow teachers “according to their own desires” and not according to the Kingdom of God.

It’s a mistake for Christians to equate being filled with the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues (unknown languages).

There have been notable revivals over history where God’s Spirit was poured out, lives changed, and whole communities transformed, and yet virtually no sign of the gift of tongues or even much in the way of physical healing.

Yet the true gift of tongues is still very much alive in every nation.

But it is not proof one has been filled with the Holy Spirit.

You can be filled with the Spirit and not speak in tongues. You can speak in tongues and not be filled with the Spirit.

Equating the one with the other tends toward people being manipulated into doing it.

Many preachers tell their audience that they should expect to speak in tongues when the Holy Spirit falls on them. They are manipulating them by prompting or coaching them to do it.

In the Bible, no one was manipulated into receiving any gift.

Such cults work up the “gift” by themselves, without the Spirit. And the members are pressured into it to prove they are saved in the eyes of the cult leaders.

Yet there’s still the true gift.

There is the real and the counterfeit.

“For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.

What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding.”

(1 Corinthians 14:14-15)

So, its usually praying in a tongue (different language) rather than speaking in tongues.

Speaking in tongues must have an interpretation.

Unless it is directly to a person who understands that language.

……

Through suffering, discouragement, temptation, pain or grief, God the Holy Spirit remains inside the faithful disciple. It might seem like it’s hard to get through to God’s Throne in Heaven, yet God is in you all the while. You are in Christ, and He in you.

The Holy Spirit always reveals Christ Jesus, always lifts our eyes to Heaven, where Christ sits at the right hand of God.

Sometimes it seems like we’re trying to push through to the Throne room, yet it’s God, Himself, who is in us empowering us to pray.

Yes, the person who abides in Christ has God inside them.

The glory may be veiled, but God’s Spirit can never be anything less than God.

We are not to passively resign ourselves to, “if it is Gods will it will happen”.

We have known people who believe, fatalisticly, that everything that happens, every circumstance, must be Gods will because He is Sovereign. And we watched as the devil did whatever he wanted with them, and they passively accepted it as Gods will.

On the point of “success” : surely there is a thing called success, as opposed to being a failure.

Whatever we do, success would glorify God more than failure.

Although, sometimes God knows we need to fail, to humble us.

Christians don’t love the things in the world because they have something much better.

……

Christian, you can live the Christian life because God’s blessing is on this way of living.

…..

What sacrifice would be too great to make for your King?

……

The only sure guarantee concerning life after death was given by Jesus Christ.

Only He promised eternal life.

And if anyone else did it would be a joke.

……

A lot of the people who are supposed to be oppressed wouldn’t have known they were oppressed if it were not for the Left constantly telling them they are.

…..

War is the most despicable thing there is.

The Bible says one day wars will cease forever.

…..

Christian, it’s not you who should be discouraged, it’s the devil who should be discouraged.

……

When Jesus Christ takes legal action…

He is the judge, jury, witness, advocate, counsel, and executioner all rolled into one.

When He died on the Cross, the judgment was made.

This is what it means when Jesus said, just prior to His execution, “Now is the judgment of this world”.

Our judgment, therefore, hinges on that judgment of 2000 years ago.

“He who believes is not condemned. He who doesn’t believe is condemned already”.

……

What do you know about God?

……

I’m excited about the eternal Kingdom of Christ the King. Soon, the kingdoms of this world will be gone, forever.

……

Every generation thinks they own the world, but then they die and have to leave it to others.

…..

Do the people in Hell realize they rejected the amazing love of God for them?

……

While I’m not nationalistic, I’m not anti nationalistic, either (a citizen of Heaven) because nationalism does have its use, as in preventing your nation being taken over by another.

……

If we’re not living by faith then we’re dead as we live.

……

One problem with the “black or white” social dichotomy is it leaves a lot of people out – the ones who are neither black or white.

……

We are undeserving, and that makes God’s grace amazing.

……

“Barely cogent”

The most powerful man on earth.

……

The main characteristic of politics now is the art of making a lie believable.

……

One characteristic of a false teacher is they tell people exactly what their flesh wants to hear. They appeal to a person’s ego, lust or greed. They confirm people in their self delusion, or their feelings of superiority and desire for self glorification.

“For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame— who set their mind on earthly things.” (Philippians 3:18-19)

…….

Young Christian, compare your favorite Prosperity preacher with Jesus of Nazareth, or any man of God in the Bible. Compare the teaching, emphasis and way of life.

Understand the difference, and then you’ll know why they are wrong and why you shouldn’t follow them.
