Love is a gift from God.

And, once received, it is our joy and responsibility.

” …The love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” (Rom. 5:5)

“In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God.” – Bible

In whatever suffering or hardship we are enduring, there is still so much to thank God for.

I don’t want suffering to make me lose sight of how much abundant grace is showered upon me daily.

……

Prayer is the extension of your faith, the voice of your faith, the expression of your faith, and a manifestation of your faith.

(Obviously, I’m referring to genuine prayer)

…..

Prayer was, and always is, God’s idea.

What do you do with this statement:

“God told me to tell you!”

??

The issue is, it is for the hearers to rightly discern by the word of God whether any message is from God.

At all times we need to discern whether God is speaking to us or whether its merely a message from man.

So, adding “God told me” , apart from being narcissistic, it discourages people from discerning, it’s as though they would be guilty if they did indeed test the message, because if God was speaking, how dare we question God?

So, it’s very manipulative.

So, encountering narcissism, manipulation, self glorifying, merchandizing… etc.. are all signs it is cultic.

…..

The person to whom God has freely imputed the righteousness of His Son loves and practices righteousness and hates evil, and doesn’t confuse the two.

……

“…And they shall be all taught by God…” (John 6:46)

This is the best thing we can hope for in anyone, that they be taught by God, for, if so, they’ll be okay. This should be our prayer for folks.

……

“…almost all biblical Christians tend to treat precedent as having normative authority to some degree or another.”

  • Fee & Stuart

(The precedents in the NT record have authority in themselves. If we ignore the precedents we ignore God’s authority to some extent. Much of church today totally ignores the precedents of NT church life and function)

Jesus is returning bodily and physically as a Man. The Man who is God, and who has a glorified physical body, with the nail scars still showing.

He will sit in a physical temple in Jerusalem and rule this world for a thousand years.

If Biden sends special forces in on a rescue mission then its a testament to his incompetence.

Leave them behind, then, find out that the voting public is not too happy about that, so quickly organize a rescue mission to rescue those you callously left behind?

So its highly unlikely he would embarrass his administration even more.

Its tragic but not surprising that the same admin which approves of murdering babies treats its citizens as expendable.

Appeasing Muslim voters in the US was surely a factor in Biden trusting the Taliban.

There must be many thousands of Muslim voters who support both Biden and the Taliban.

……

Christian, how much has God, in His Son, forgiven you?

Can you estimate the magnitude of that forgiveness, personally, for you?

You might, to some degree, be aware that, all your life, you broke the commands of God and tread His laws contemptuously and defiantly under your feet.

Okay, with that degree of awareness, can you comprehend the magnitude of such forgiveness required to forgive such an exhaustive list of offenses and transgressions against God?

God’s forgiveness would be useless if it were in part. A partly forgiven person is no better off than the one who has found no forgiveness.

The only basis by which God can forgive our sins is that His Son, Jesus Christ, bore the penalty of those sins, which was death in our place, washing us from our sins in His own blood, the just for the unjust.

Therefore, as Christ’s work on the Cross is perfect and was accomplished in full, God’s forgiveness is perfect and in full. It can never be dispensed in measures, only in full.

“Blessed is the man to whom God will not impute sin.”

So, are you forgiven?

Or are you still guilty?

……

What is the advantage for despotic governments to suppress information about effective and proven Covid treatments?

It draws the focus away from vaccination, and that would weaken their plans to gain more control over peoples personal lives.

If they promoted the treatments very few would die. This is proven.

But that is not an option because it means people won’t be controlled, and the pharmaceutical industry would lose.

……

Are you just a skeleton covered with meat, or is there more to you than that? Do you have a soul? Do you have a spirit?

……

Bible prophecy warns us things are going to get a lot harder for real Christians. I’m glad for the warning.

……

“REMEMBER: 97% of scientists agree with whoever is funding them!”

……

You would think that if a person is a Christian they would believe everything Jesus said, be captivated, joyful and excited by what He said, and act upon it?

……

Me – “Church should be along the guidelines of the New Testament example and pattern.”

Institutional pastor – “And do you think you follow the New Testament pattern and we don’t? Do you think you are better than us?”

Me – “How does what I do, or don’t do, have any bearing on what you believe and do? I’m asking you to follow the New Testament pattern, not me. It has nothing to do with me.”

(The word of God does not stand or fall on what Christians do or don’t do. It does not rest on man. Man can neither add or subtract from its authority.)

……

If Jesus Christ has given you eternal life, how could He be just part of your life?

……

There are approximately 7 to 8 billion people alive right now.

Many are in desperate circumstances.

Some are all alone in this world.

Some are surrounded by people but still all alone.

Many are in deep pain, either physically, emotionally or spiritually.

But the Lord Jesus Christ sees every one of these folks – the forgotten people whom no one sees.

The Bible says He is near to the broken hearted.

If you are one of these, or even if you’re not, NOW IS YOUR TIME, for Jesus Christ is calling you to come to Him.

Jesus said, “Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest”.

……

If you know Jesus, no matter what happens, you can’t lose.

And the converse is also true.

….

“Ridiculous rhetoric”

Describes so much of the spin we hear.

……

Nature is God ‘right in your face’, so to speak.

But, no, nature is not God.

……

The Holy Spirit who lives in a disciple of Christ is the same God who is seated in Heaven. There is only one God.

When the Holy Spirit teaches, convicts, instructs, comforts, encourages, warns or guides you, that is God the Father speaking from Heaven , through His Son, by His Spirit in you. It’s a message from Heaven, from another world, not of this world.

……

Whatever you really need, ask the Father.

And we can also ask for our friends as well.

……

“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

(2 Corinthians 5:21)

Jesus took our place and suffered in our place.

And on this basis, by faith, we are accounted as having been crucified with Christ and risen with Him.

“knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.” (Romans 6:6)

On this basis satan no longer has power over us.

To be freed from sin’s power is to be freed from satan’s power.

Jesus died for the sins of the whole world.

Satan can only have power over you while sin has power over you.

Only the new creation in Christ by the Holy Spirit – only this person has power over sin and is truly free.

…..

A suggested prayer, if this is what you want:

‘Father, please make me a man/woman of prayer. In Jesus name.’

If this is what we truly want, then it’s ours.

…..

Why does so much modern “worship” have an emphasis on creating an emotional state through cheesy, emotional, repetitive tunes?

Its designed to touch the emotions of the “worshiper”.

It’s great to get emotional about God, but not because you were manipulated into feeling a certain way by overtly emotional tunes.

It’s like a drug for people.

The truth makes me emotional, or stirs my deepest being.

Cheesy, pathetically bad music does not.

Actually…

The philosophy behind it is that cheesy songs attract Gods presence.

If you play the cheesy music, He will come.

Then… they interpret the manipulation of their emotions to mean that God’s presence has come into the building.

Then they are trapped on a treadmill.

They have to perform the ritual every time to get Him to come.

But the Gospel is the opposite.

The Gospel is Christ in you, 24/7.

……

A “worship” where self is the theme must be a worship of oneself.

……

Would really like to see a survey done on violent offenders in the US to see their political leaning.

……

Concerning Paul:

“But the Lord said to him, “Go, for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel. For I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name’s sake.” (Acts 9:15)

It truly sounds like God had a plan preprepared for Paul. A very precise plan. You just can’t walk in before kings and preach to them, but, if it’s God’s plan, yes, you can, and Paul did. And his sufferings, also, were integral to fulfilling that divine plan.

Paul also said that he must be obedient to the heavenly calling and be diligent to walk along that planned route, preplanned by God.

Are we different?

Do we follow anything we can imagine we want to do?

Or are we aware, like Paul, that God has already planned our route and we should seek His plan?

……

Sometimes I look up at the stars and say, ‘This all belongs to my Father!’.

“Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.” (1 Chronicles 29:11)

……

Try to reconcile these two truths:

a. There are degrees of morality: some people are more wicked than others.

b. Even the most moral person has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. That is, every person must bear the wages of their sin, which is death – separation from God. …Unless they believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and are redeemed by His grace.

…..

Quite a number of Christians are in survival mode, rather than being focused on fulfilling and finishing their ministry.

If we are about the Father’s business we need not be concerned about our survival.

This is what Jesus taught. “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you”.

The early church was not survival focused, but focused on doing the will of the Father.

Refer to Matthew 25:24-30.

…..

Bible believers already know what will happen in the future, but they don’t know the timings of the prophetic events foretold in Scripture, so this is the tension: they know what will happen, but not when it happens, therefore, they keep pushing ahead by faith, resting in the knowledge that the times and seasons are in the Father’s hand.

Commented:

It just doesn’t sound real to profess your love to someone when you have no idea who they are, and also no real inclination to know them in real life.

“My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.”

(1 John 3:18)

People living in unreality is the real pandemic.

……

Someone writes, “Hell is merely Gehenna, a rubbish dump outside Jerusalem”.

Reply: That is where Hell got its name from.

In that rubbish dump the fire never went out.

This was demonstrative of the fact that the torment of Hellfire is a fire which never goes out.

Jesus said the fire which torments in Hell will never be extinguished (Mark 9:42-48).

Which underlines the urgency of His message.

So, don’t follow cult teachings.

Believe what the Lord Jesus Christ said.
