Today’s Tweets

If someone includes you in their prayers they probably really love you, and they’re the kind of friends we really need.

…..

I’m not interested in politics, however, politics is now about ideology, and I think everyone should be interested in ideology.

…..

What impact is the Holy Spirit having in your life today?

Did the Holy Spirit show you things today, or did you figure it out yourself?

Is it a great joy for you to know the Holy Spirit is in you 24/7?

…..

With every natural resource which is used by man for his benefit and to meet a need, you can bet God knew of that need before He created the resource, which was created before He created man, and that He gave man the skill to identify and exploit the resource. Most probably, the technological rise of man was due to God having already designed the technology, then helping man achieve it. God knew what man would need before He created him.

Do you think it’s merely a coincidence that the natural world supplies mans every need, and that man has learned to exploit it?

The resource predates the need.

But of course, man is supposed to be a good steward of these provisions and not destroy the earth.

…..

Every ethnic group on earth has its share of a shameful, violent history. We all come from the same parents and inherited the same sinful nature.

Often we find people from various ethnicities acting as if their ancestors lived in some golden age of peace, love and harmony.

…..

It’s absurd to believe the Universe created itself out of nothing.

When I look at the extreme complexity and magnitude of the natural world and universe, then it’s easy for me to understand that the Father, who made it all, can take note of every sparrow that falls.

…..

I don’t usually celebrate anything the first century church didn’t celebrate.

I’m okay with that.

Also okay with those who disagree.

So… why??

I think the Apostles knew what they were doing.

…..

“…The effective, FERVENT prayer of a righteous man avails much.” (James 5:16b)

Therefore, if we lose fervency we should immediately pause and seek to regain it. It would be useless to just continue on in prayer without fervency.

Fervency is not evidenced in the outward.

God is not deaf. He doesn’t need anyone to shout. Nor does He need anyone to pray in flowery religious jargon, or contrived emotions.

We should know by the indwelling Spirit in our inner man if there is a SOLID CONNECTION in our heart as we pray.

There must be an inner witness for everything if the Spirit is involved.

Or, whether it’s more mental than birthed by the Spirit.

…..

The exclusive claims of the Gospel are in fact the exclusive claims of Jesus Christ, Himself.

People didn’t think it up for themselves, creating their own religion.

So, if anyone objects to Jesus being the only way to God they should take it up with Him. He said it.

They shouldn’t persecute Christians for simply repeating what Jesus said and taught.

If they hate the message then they must hate Him, because it is His message

People are free to hate Jesus Christ, or dismiss Him as false or of no account.

No true Christians are forcing their faith on anyone or threatening anyone for discrediting Jesus Christ.

It’s not hateful to repeat anything Jesus said.

Unless you believe that what Jesus said is hateful.

…..

Unwanted children is a big issue today.

From God the Father’s point of view, all of His children are very much wanted children.

…..

Even the greatest or most beautiful person is one day going to be rotting away six feet underground.

Take Jesus seriously.

…..

A challenge for evangelists is to clearly articulate and explain what the Bible teaches concerning sin and repentance, yet without coming across as judgmental, unloving or superior.

…..

Is your concept of church attendance based on what you can get out of it, or on what you can contribute?

…..

There’s certain countries where if you announce that you are an Apostle you will get an instant following.

This is due to a lack of critical thinking, where Christians have been obsessed with personalities and chasing spiritual experiences and manifestations attributed to these personalities.

Certainly, such “apostles” never help people develop their critical thinking faculties.

……

The eternal perspective is the right perspective.

……

When true disciples of Christ meet anywhere they don’t need to conduct a formal meeting in order to share God’s word, discuss, and pray for one another.

……

Liberal Christians don’t believe in the authority of Scripture. However, when I ask them to describe a truth concerning Jesus Christ or from Him which is not described in Scripture then they always switch the subject.

Switching the subject can mean they don’t understand what the subject is, or they’re simply being tricky.

I try to get them to understand that if you’re tricky it’s because you’re a fraud.

…..

The Bible defines sin, so we never have to be in doubt about it.

If you have any doubt about the difference between right and wrong, please consult your Bible.

……

Now is the time to say what you need to say.

Life is very short.

…..

Evil spirits try to keep you from seeking God.

Are they succeeding?

……

“…in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” (Ephesians 2:22)

A holy people whom God sees collectively as His dwelling place.

…..

When you’re drawing your last breath will you be thinking about religion, or thinking about God?

……

We can’t overemphasize the need for each person to be saved. If you’re not saved, do you know what will happen to you?

……

“…All these moments shall be lost in time, like tears in the rain…” (Blade Runner film)

If there were no God, life would be futile. You would die, then cease to exist, lost in time. Eventually, your name would be entirely forgotten, as if you never existed. It would be all gone. Nothing has any transcendent meaning without God. The things you think have meaning would all be gone, forgotten forever, as if they never happened.

Thankfully, Atheism is a myth.

…..

Political propaganda media throws up decoy stories to draw your attention away from the stories they don’t want you to see, which they try to bury.

……

His wonders are so we will never cease to be in wonder of Him.

……

Conversation with a cultural Christian:

X – What if someone were to ask you, ‘Are you saved?’, what would be your reply?

Y – I don’t understand the question.

X – Saved, as in, if you died this moment, would you go to Heaven or Hell?

Y – Heaven, I hope.

X – Does this mean you are not absolutely sure whether you would go to Heaven or Hell?

Y – I don’t think anyone can be sure, that’s why we have to have faith.

X – Did Jesus promise eternal life to whoever believes?

Y – Yes.

X – Then, if His promise is true, and you truly believe that promise, then you would have eternal life, right?

Y – But it’s not that simple, we also have to be a good person.

X – But how can you be a good person if you don’t believe what Jesus promised?

Y – Oh, I do believe!

X – But you just admitted you don’t have eternal life, but you’re hoping to be good enough to earn it? This would indicate you don’t believe His promise.

Y – I have been in church all my life and no one has ever explained it to me like this. Thanks so much.

……

If anyone reads the New Testament honestly they will know whether they’re saved or not, whether they’re going to Heaven or Hell, and whether their way of life is pleasing to God, and what God requires them to do.

They won’t need anyone else to tell them.

……

Apart from the Kingdom of Christ, what is there?

…..

When parents fail to raise their children in a Godly way they doom the world. A dystopian world is the product of dysfunctional parenting.

…..

If someone was going to write about you: about who you are and what you are like, your beliefs and values, what kind of person you are, and what you’ve done, then, you would want them to give an accurate description. You might be offended if they used their imagination and described a person very different to the person you actually are, and portrayed you in a wrong light.

Now, apply this to God.

“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…” (Heb. 1:1-3)

……

Believing in the Sovereignty of God also means believing He is arranging everything you’ll need to serve Him, and arranging for all the people you should meet, at the specific time and location He appoints – all while you sleep through the night, He is working behind the scenes, preparing your way, and causing the right people to come into contact with you.

……

One thing that ‘walking in the Light’ means is that you start to see things differently by virtue of the LORD shining His Light on it, so, because it is His Light, you begin to see things as He sees them, whereas, before, you were in the dark, not seeing things as He sees them.

…..

There was a time when ‘filled with the Spirit’ was normal Christianity.

……

Moral issues ultimately only make sense in relation to Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Otherwise, it’s merely the ever shifting morality of man, which has no authority.

…..

Since it’s hard to justify murder, the only option, then, is to say the baby is not a person.
