Today’s Tweets

You don’t need to search very far to find God if His Spirit is truly within you.

Which is a gross understatement.

He lives in you, and you’re searching for Him?

…..

Jesus!

“…Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there’s something about that Name!”

…..

The end of the world is not the end of it all for those who possess eternal life in Jesus Christ, it’s just the beginning.

……

No, Christianity was not based on a lie.

Jesus did rise again.

There was no scam about it.

He really did rise again.

It is not a lie.

It wasn’t a lie which turned the world upside down, transforming lives everywhere.

…..

Jesus of Nazareth.

Still alive today.

What a friend.

What a Savior.

What a King.

…….

About creation:

Ultimately everything hinges on Jesus.

He believed the Old Testament account to be valid and true, He said so.

And He is God in the flesh.

He rose from the dead.

So I will trust that His judgment about is correct and He wasn’t mistaken.

…..

Did they tell you this at school about Radio Carbon Dating?

“Samples that are older than about 40,000 years are extremely difficult to date due to tiny levels of carbon-14. Over 60,000 years old, and they can’t be dated at all.”

And yet dinosaurs were supposed to have lived millions of years ago, and yet there’s no proof it was so long ago.

And “primitive man” hundreds of thousands of years ago, but no proof, just guessing.

So, therefore these are THEORIES and not facts.

…..

Jesus gave everything for us.

What should be our response?

……

While our faith is intensely personal, it can’t remain private:

“Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.” (Matt. 10:32-33)

…..

Intercessory prayer (for specific people) is a massive responsibility.

If we are not interested, He might pass us over and find someone else who will care.

……

Only Jesus can make the dead come to life.

And He was once dead, but now He’s alive forevermore.

And we who are in Him were once dead, but now we’re alive forevermore.

…..

While you still have at least a little freedom of speech left, make the most of it while you can.

…..

A Liberal Christian was musing, ‘Did Jesus have knowledge, or did He have love?’.

See the set up, the false dichotomy presented? You get to choose, either Jesus had knowledge, or He had love? As if love is somehow threatened by knowledge.

He had TRUTH. He was and is THE TRUTH.

This means He’s not only the source of truth, but He embodies the truth as well.

And He is the embodiment of love as well.

We can’t separate His truth from His love. That would be ridiculous to even try.

You can look at what He taught as knowledge or theology, or you can look at it simply as TRUTH.

God “…desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Tim. 2:4)

Then, when the paradigm of theology came along much later, Christians could choose whether they were interested in the truth or not. Truth became an option, and was rebranded “theology”.

Defining our terms, “knowledge” in scripture refers to knowing and experiencing God, not just having information.

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14)

……

If the issue or incident is petty, our retort will likewise be petty.

…..

I turned to God, not to religion.

Yet, Liberal “Christians” define “religion” differently. They think that believing and obeying Jesus makes you “religious”, and only those indoctrinated into Liberalism are truly spiritual.

…..

Those who want power over others never want freedom of speech or thought, for obvious reasons.

…..

Do you have to wait till Judgment Day to see how God judges?

Or can you know it today by reading His word?

…..

Talk to God a lot, and when you have time talk to people also.

…..

The rise of Global Government.

The rise of global ideological brainwashing.

The death of free speech or independent thought.

This is where it’s heading.

…..

The ministry of the Holy Spirit in an individual’s life spills over and is the same ministry to the church, the body of Christ. The Holy Spirit builds you up, and He wants to work through you to build up the brothers and sisters, who are the church. Similarly, He corrects you, and may want to use you as an instrument of correction also.

……

The “non-answer”.

This is a special skill which slippery people have perfected.

Suppression of the truth.

Only slippery people do it.

……

“… You have kept my word…” (Rev. 3:8)

Are we keeping His word?

…..

Truth is much more than something we intellectually ascribe or assent to: for the life we live is either the truth or a lie.

If our life is lived in Jesus Christ, who is the truth, our life will reflect His truth.

…..

Conservative-ism is not Christianity, and as long as it doesn’t take the place of true Christianity (personally knowing Jesus Christ) then it’s much better than any other political or ideological alternative, such as Woke fascism or extreme Left Wing or Right Wing ideologies.

Christians should think of political Conservatism, not as representing Christianity, but rather simply a better alternative than Anti-Christian ideologies.

…..

It would be a good idea to take Jesus seriously.

…..

Salvation is totally undeserved, but it’s not totally unconditional.

The word “If” is a conjunction which introduces a conditional clause. Watch out for it in the Bible.

God’s love is unconditional.

And yet He eternally punishes those who don’t repent.

So, with such, it wasn’t that God didn’t love them, or that He failed to continue to love them that they end up in Hell forever.

Scripture says,

“…remain in His love..”

“…abide in His love..”

If we turn away from God and exchange Him for our lust, then we have not remained in His love.

“You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” (Rev. 3:4-5)

“Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.” (Romans 11:22)

…..

Sometimes the devil wants you to argue with people whom God wants you to ignore.

…..

Social media tells us what people think about things.

The Bible tells us what God thinks about things.

…..

Prayer is your connection to God.

……

The classic themes of story telling have mostly centered on the struggle of good over evil. Now, with Disney, guess the plots to come? The sexually immoral are the “good guys”, and anyone who disagrees are the villains, the evil ones, the monsters?

Disney has always had a spiritual message embedded in their content. It used to be a fascination with the occult. Now it’s sexualization and gender indoctrination of kids. In past times they would never have gotten away with it.

…..

Someone says gifts of the Spirit were meant purely as “signs”.

Answer: When Paul prayed privately in an unknown language more than anyone else (1Cor. 14) this wasn’t a “sign” to anyone because it was in private, in secret.

Then, where is the scripture which says such a work of the Spirit ceased?

I mean the actual text, not circular arguments?

……

With God’s help what can you do?

Is it possible if He helps you to do it?

How much of a difference does His help make?

…..

There is no place for a celebrity teacher or prophet if one accepts scripture as the only truth.

…..

The creation gives me great joy because of the One who created it.

…..

How can someone who’s shining the Light to the world then come under the influence of the world? How can the darkness dictate to the light?

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light” (Eph. 5:8)

…..

Man can’t be neutral toward God, he will either love Him or resent Him.

Why are people so attracted to things which defy God’s order in creation?

It’s because deep in man’s psyche he harbors resentment toward God. It can be hidden deep in the subconscious, yet it manifests in a life which takes pleasure in purposely doing the opposite of God’s order, in rebellion.

Like a naughty child who displays his resentment by always going contrary to his parent’s wishes.

…..

Angels are created beings, which means they have a beginning. So, what was it like before they were created, way back in the eternal past?

There is true wonder when it comes to God.

God is the ultimate reality, and yet also beyond full comprehension for us.

The main thing is we can know Him personally, through His Son, Jesus Christ.

We don’t need to fully comprehend everything about God in order to know God, because we are His children.

“The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deut. 29:29)

…..

I trust your church attendance is helping you grow in Christlikeness, into a better, more mature, loving and caring human being, into an ever increasing faith and love for Jesus, and in the renewal of your mind to think soberly, rationally, honestly and orderly, equipping you to soundly articulate the Gospel and the word of God to those around you?
