The greatest people are those who have the true love of Jesus in their heart and life.

…..

Jesus gives eternal life, then you live in eternity right now, and then you experience the passage of time from a different perspective.

…..

“If you cannot say quite honestly that everything else becomes relatively unimportant to you in comparison with this [the pursuit of God], I do not see that you have any right to call yourself a Christian.”

— Martyn Lloyd Jones

……

People who use profanity to make their point are not worth listening to, for that very reason, because they think that by using profanity or blasphemy it makes them authoritative, intelligent or proves their point, or proves they are right. It would be foolish, then, to take them seriously.

……

Christian, are you filled with the Holy Spirit?

No, it has nothing to do with speaking in tongues.

Though that can happen.

……

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,

4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?

6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.

7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.

8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,

10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,

12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thess.2:3-12)

Notes

a. A world leader is coming who will claim to be God.

b. Revelation 13 says the whole world will worship him.

c. Before he is revealed there is a falling away. This refers to professing Christians. Others can’t fall away as they never had the truth.

d. These “Christians” (and they might still think of themselves as Christians) worship this man, along with the world.

e. The reason the world believes the claim of this man is because of the miracles he performs, and, because they did not love the truth of God’s word He causes them to be delusional, as a judgment.

f. The “lie” mentioned here, which most people will believe, is that this man is God, or, implied, the Messiah or Savior of the world. Yet, verse 12 reveals the nature of this man’s message: “pleasure in unrighteousness”. It implies a religion which does not require repentance from sin, or, which redefines sin as not sin, or even worse, makes sin a spiritual virtue (which is a continuation of the ancient practice of idolatry combined with immorality).

So, the “lie” is twofold, concerning who the man is, and concerning his message.

g. It’s implied in Revelation that the world looks to this man for leadership and unity due to the intractable conflicts and problems it faces.

……

One of the key indicators of the state of our walk with the Lord is how many people we genuinely pray for each day.

……

Imagine if all the people you knew were filled with the Holy Spirit.

……

We can’t expect anything worthwhile in people’s lives apart from the work of the Holy Spirit. That is, from God’s perspective.

….

“Our rights come from God, not from government.”

…..

Christmas and Easter never gets “over”. That’s the point.

……

If Jesus Christ is truly your Savior, then you’re saved.

……

The Creator-creature relationship is the one relationship you can’t avoid: you’re stuck with it, for better or for worse. It can be for the better.

……

One of the most pathetic beliefs man has bought into is the belief that when you die you cease to exist.

It gives people a false “hope” that they won’t have to give an account to God.

There’s a long list of pathetic beliefs mankind has bought into.

……

Jesus said, ‘What profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?’.

Isn’t this the equation most people are living out in their lives? They’ve traded their soul for something of this world.

……

Politics is okay if it’s not the instrument of an ideology.

……

If people are actually essentially good, and, religion is good, then, from ancient times till today, after all this time, we would have thought that mankind would have learned to get on together and love one another?

Then, people expect everything to change, when nothing has changed in the heart of man.

So, the only way mankind can try and create societal utopia is down the barrel of a gun, or by the edge of the sword.

This has been the pattern of such social experiments in the past, and this is where we’re heading now.

See Revelation chapter 13.

…..

Disciple, if someone despises you without a cause, remember, you’re still their servant, you’re a servant of all.

……

In natural terms, some people have a good life, others, a bad life. Some have a charmed life, others, a life of suffering. Some have a care free life, others, a very tough life. Some have a lot of happiness, others, a lot of sorrow. Some enjoy good health, others, not. Some enjoy all the comforts money can buy, others, get by without those comforts.

This is how life is.

Yet, there’s something even greater than life itself.

So great, that ultimately, these issues fade into insignificance in comparison.

It’s to be born again. Born a second time. To receive a second chance, a new beginning. To have the eternal life of God in you. To know Jesus Christ.

This is greater than life itself because all these issues of life will soon be gone and won’t matter.

……

Moral outrage is something which seems to be very selective, partisan and subjective.

……

Do you enjoy time alone with the Lord?

…..

Jesus said He is the Light of the world.

I believe Him.

…..

“And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy.” (Acts 2:18)

Let’s be honest, this hardly describes Christianity today.

……

What is true?

To come to Christ is to come to the truth.

To face Him is to face the truth.

To follow Him will mean dealing with the truth.

……

God made a nation of people in the Middle East, Israel, and gave them His law. The law tells us a lot about God and His values and standards. It wasn’t given to punish man, but to show us what God is like, and show us the sin that is in our hearts, like a mirror, and to prepare us to receive a Savior, who would be God in the flesh, Jesus Christ.

Jesus would reconcile us to God by His blood and spiritually recreate us, writing His laws in our hearts, conforming our nature to His nature.

The law shows us the great chasm between a Holy God and sinful man.

It would be truly horrifying to stand before God and be judged by His law. That’s the dreadful state every one of us finds himself in, without Christ.

The death of Christ Jesus on the Cross, and the shedding of His blood, bridged that chasm between God and man, fulfilling the law for us.

Jesus said, “I am the way!”.

…..

Does Woke ideology offer people the option that it’s okay to not accept it if you don’t want to?

No. It’s fascist to the core.

……

Christmas is far more popular than Jesus.

Funny how some people celebrate Jesus’ birth who don’t believe what He said?

……

The people who want to rule over everyone else are not good people, and for that very reason.

……

Do you believe love can be explained or defined solely in terms of physical neural processes within the brain: chemical reactions, electrical impulses, released hormones… … a complex neurological process?

Or do you believe love is something more than simply physical processes which can be observed by science?

Do you believe there is a spiritual realm, even though science can’t observe it?

……

Nothing can permanently last or survive without love – whether it be friendships, marriages, churches, societies or nations…

And they don’t have to lack love because genuine love is available through abiding in Christ Jesus.

…..

When it’s about what the Bible says and teaches then it’s no longer about who YOU are.
