Spend as much time alone with God as you deem Him worthy of.

…..

If God did not exist, life would be futile and meaningless, and it would not exist in the first place.

If God did not exist, you would look back on all your memories of the life you’ve lived and realize it was all for nothing, for soon you will die and cease to exist, and everyone else as well, so it would be as if you never existed, because all your memories would no longer exist, they would have died with you.

…..

The beauty of creation is really His beauty.

And how would you know something is beautiful unless He gave you the ability to know it?

…..

Hyper spirituality leads to false spirituality.

……

I’ve known nominal Christians who’ve mistakenly equated trusting their church denomination with trusting God. They think they both mean the same thing, so if you trust your “church” then you are trusting God.

…..

Ephesians 4:14a “…that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine…”
.
.

Waiting for the next wind of doctrine to blow in from YouTube and fill your sails and carry you further away from knowing Jesus in reality?

A substitute for Him, and something to waste your life pursuing?

……

Commented

The early church pattern was in a way that people were confronted with reality, because it was relational.

Today, people don’t want a relational church, but rather a way to avoid reality and still feel blessed.

Like your friend the “Apostle”. If he visited a Biblical church they would ask him on what basis he has made himself to be an Apostle? He wouldn’t like that church. He would only like a church which confirms him in the unreality which he has chosen.

……

How we feel about our enemies is a good indicator of how well we know Jesus Christ.

…..

The righteousness of Christ is imputed to the repentant believer.

This means his guilt has been washed away and he’s empowered to live righteously, abiding in Christ.

…..

Right or wrong is always a question of what is truth, and what is a lie.

Whatever is right is the truth, and whatever is wrong is a lie.

To do what’s wrong is to believe and propagate a lie.

……

Are you having fun?

Well, I’m having joy, so I guess I’m not missing out on any fun.

…..

Mercy rejected means you miss out on mercy and get justice.

You want mercy.

You don’t want justice.

Jesus fulfilled the justice so we can receive forgiveness without God violating His law.

…..

Commented

In a democracy, if enough people decide something is morally right then it becomes morally right. This is a weakness of democracy.

As to rights, churches also have a right not to perform gay marriages if it goes against their beliefs.

……

An amount of time is allocated to every person.

…..

If the HOLY Spirit is in a person He will communicate with them moment by moment.

Christ is our life.

Everything concerning our being is His business.

If the Spirit of God indwells a person then nothing concerning their life can be compartmentalized away from Him – every aspect of their being has to do with Him, and they should be aware of His approval of every word, thought, attitude and action, or His disapproval.

……

Novak fnally allowed into Australia, because it turns out that un __ ed people were never a danger to anyone, and the public were brainwashed into believing they were.

……

Help him/her, LORD, to have a conscience.

…..

Humans know something about love, and even animals know, but we can’t fully grasp what it is, because God is love, and we can’t fully grasp who He is.

BTW, the love of God is totally compatible with the wrath of God. This highlights how limited our true understanding of love is.

From our perspective, God created love, but from His perspective, He is love, so it wasn’t created at all, it’s who He is.

…..

If you’ve got a conscience, that’s all the proof you need that God exists.

Everyone’s conscience witnesses there is a God.

And if there is no God, how do you explain what a conscience is?

How does right or wrong exist without God?

…..

It has been said the “prosperity gospel”, in relation to God, is like marrying someone for their money.

…..

A Christian should never think anything about themselves independent of the LORD. Who are we, as individuals, when we constantly need Him and can do nothing without His help? Without Him we are helpless. What do we amount to, personally, if, without Him, we amount to nothing? We have nothing of ourselves to glory in, only Him.

…..

The Bible teaches conformity to Christ, as opposed to conformity to the world (see Rom. 8:29, 12:2).

If we are conformed to the world, who are we conformed to?

You guessed it.

…..

Read today:

“Paul sees all kinds of sins in himself and all kinds of accomplishments too, but he refuses to connect either with his ultimate identity.”

This nearly hits the mark, but not quite.

“Sins in himself”?

When Paul said, “In my flesh dwells no good thing” and that he denied his flesh, he was not admitting he was committing “all kinds of sin”, for if that had been the case he would have been a hypocrite. As far as Paul’s past goes he admitted he was a criminal. As for his present, he said, “I have lived with all good conscience before God until this day” (Acts 23:1).

It’s true that Paul’s identity was in Christ alone and not in what he had done or not done. He was a child or son of God who also just happened to be an Apostle.

Liberals love to imply that Paul was living in sin because they think it kind of justifies their sinful lifestyles.

……

Christians love their country, and yet their citizenship is in Heaven.

…..

A Christian can never say they weren’t supplied enough grace to face their circumstances.

…..

If we struggle with prayer there’s no shame in that – it’s only shame if we give up the struggle and cease to pray.

……

“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)

Which will you choose to experience, His goodness or severity? Everyone will experience either.

We shouldn’t let one attribute obscure the other.

God is love, and He also is Holy.

Oftentimes the goodness of God is redefined and perverted to mean God will cater to your lusts.

…..

If God is whoever you imagine him to be then all you have is an imaginary god.

….

Democracy is better than the alternatives, and yet it’s also the vehicle through which a society can choose its own destruction.

……

“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16)

So, the fool wastes the time God has given him. Implied here that if he wastes his time he gravitates toward evil.

…..

Your spiritual life is your life.

…..

You want to be happy now, but God wants you to be happy through all eternity, and this is His promise in Jesus Christ.

…..

Honor should be reserved for those who deserve it, and not for those who seek it.

…..

It’s good to understand the last days, and even better to understand that today could be your last day and to be ready to stand before Jesus Christ.

……

Ultimately, everything gets settled in a higher court.

…..

With church (assembly) there should always be this sense of what the Head of the Church desires for His church.

…….

The Bible really only has one subject…

Him.

The message is about Him, not us.

…..

A sad part about traditional Christianity is that multitudes think that the traditions they cling to were instituted by God.

…..

The more we comprehend the greatness of God, the less impressed we are with great people.

…..

Paul faced discouragement at times, but he snapped out of it. And to be fair, the things he faced were much tougher than what we face, so, therefore, he had perhaps more grounds for discouragement than we.

The cure for discouragement is to accept with joy the fact that you have been called to be a
bond-servant of Jesus Christ, so unless you are discouraged with Him, then what grounds do you have for discouragement? He will never let you down, so there’s no grounds for discouragement with Him. But if others let you down there’s still no grounds for discouragement because you don’t serve them, they are not your master. Live unto the LORD alone, like Paul did, and discouragement will be temporary, not permanent.

…..

As the Holy Spirit is not materialistic, the materialistic Christian has not much clue about the Holy Spirit.

…..

We sometimes think we are hindered from having a ministry, then we remember that the Holy Spirit is not hindered.

…..

Christianity and the Gospel rests upon Jesus Christ, alone.

And so do you and I.

Looking at history ya think, What a bunch of savages!

Let’s see what the savages are planning next.

……

“The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.” (Proverbs 8:13)

If we don’t have the fear of the LORD then we don’t have the love of the LORD.

Unless we hate evil we don’t know the love of God.

…..

“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years” (Revelation 20:1-2)

The text tells us that just one angel is required to arrest the devil and take him into custody and keep him in jail, ceasing his worldwide power in just one simple operation.

Only one angel is needed for this great task because this one angel is an agent of God, sent by God to do this task, therefore he has all of God’s power behind him to effectively fulfill the task. It’s not about the strength of the angel, it’s a question of whose power and authority he is sent in.

The same goes with us if we are ambassadors or emissaries of Christ.

…..

When we pray for someone do we fully appreciate the value of their soul?

“I am with you always” is enough for my soul to live upon no matter who forsakes me.

To redefine God’s word is to redefine God and therefore end up with a false god.

“For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.” (Hebrews 12:3)

Then we won’t become weary and discouraged in our souls.

…..

Matthew 22:37-39
Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

This should describe our life. Our life should be described as such: Here is a person who loves God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength, and truly loves everyone.

….

If you were the devil, what kind of religion would you invent to get people to worship you while they think they are worshipping God?

Probably one where people have no moral restraints but can still feel spiritual.

This is the final ace up his sleeve:

You can be spiritual and immoral at the same time.

How? By redefining God’s word.

The emerging world religion redefines Biblical love.

It is based on a perversion of what the love of God means.

“Love Wins” …. maybe some have heard of that?

Ultimately, the definition of “love” will be to conform to a universal faith and government.

Haters will be those who follow the Jesus of the Bible These will be deemed as threats to humanity.

We are seeing it emerge right now.

Anyone who questions the left wing narrative is “fact checked” then banned because they don’t conform to the “community standard”.

……

If you know God cares for you then you know He cares for everyone.

……

Man has a problem with God called sin.

Jesus removed that problem.

…..

When you read the philosophers of history it’s good to ask, Where are they now?

…..

No matter how much God works in a person’s life it doesn’t turn them into a “god” because all His works in us are works of His grace and totally unmerited, therefore He gets all the credit, not the person.

…..

Imagine trying to “escape” from God or deny His existence when He’s the One who gives you every breath?

…..

Money preachers and commercial prophets embody the dreams of those Christians who desire to be rich, who see in them a formula to “get” God to make them rich, not understanding that in doing so they’re becoming just as much a fraud as the preacher they follow.

The Holy Spirit lives in us (who follow Christ) and He doesn’t need reviving, but we do, so, it’s going to be through Him we are revived.

…..

Saw today the “pillars of creation” images from the James Webb Space Telescope. Two things came to mind: The images are 6500 light years away, so they are images of what it looked like 6500 years ago. And they report to have proof of stars forming in these images. So, we have proof stars were forming as recently as 6500 years ago. Interesting from a Biblical perspective.

Young stars, young planets?

It’s interesting that we can see back in time, as it were, to around the time the Bible says creation happened.

If this pic proves there are young stars then there also must be young planets.

Let’s see a pic from 7000 light years away.

If I’m asked, ‘Do I believe in a young earth?’, I would answer that with a question, Did Jesus believe in a young earth?

What Jesus believed is reliable, for He is the incarnate Son of God, God in the flesh.

In John 10:35 He said, “the scripture cannot be broken”.

It’s recorded on numerous occasions that He held the Jewish scriptures up as the authoritative word of God.

He never edited the book of Genesis.

So, my point is, because of who Jesus Christ is, you’re on safe ground if you believe what He believed.

And you’re wrong if you don’t.

…..

There’s only Jesus, there’s nothing else, and if you have Him you have life.

‘He who has the Son has life’, the scripture says.

……

Because man was made in the image of God he was made a spiritual creature, and, as such, he is made in such a way to believe and to function by belief, therefore, man either believes the truth or he believes a lie, he cannot believe nothing, unless he is a vegetable.

…..

As Jesus is the only person to ever cure physical blindness, He’s also the only person to ever cure spiritual blindness: giving sight to the blind, physically and spiritually.

The Creator knows His own creation very well. He knows you and I very well. He gives life and breath to every creature.

If you could experience everything this planet has to offer it would still be nothing compared to experiencing Heaven.

You could no easier escape God’s law than you could the law of gravity.

God’s law still applies to people regardless of what they believe.

The same as the law of gravity still applies regardless of whether you believe in it.

The law of gravity doesn’t discriminate.

Neither do God’s laws.


“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.” (1 Cor. 69-11)

“And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.” (Rev. 20:12)

Books. A biography on every person who ever lived. Flattering to think there’s a book being written about you? Maybe not.

A commercial “prophet” always appeals to something in your flesh.

If I believe the commercial “prophets” on Twitter I come to the conclusion that I am the center of the Universe and God exists to serve me.

Contrary to the left wing narrative, the beliefs of others, and their expression of those beliefs, can’t possibly harm you, it’s only their actions which could cause harm.

If someone preaches the earth is flat he is not harming me, is he? Even if he tries his best to convince me, he’s still not harmed me. Only the unbalanced would think someone else’s beliefs have traumatized them.

If any religion gets on its soapbox and insists it is the truth, it has not harmed me.

It’s a fundamental human right to believe what you want to believe and tell the world if you feel you need to.

You can’t discuss politics without touching on moral issues, so, then, it’s going to be a difficult discussion when people have different concepts of morality.

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.” (1 Peter 3:15)

False equivalence: Many people have falsely predicted the date of Jesus’ return, therefore this is proof He is not returning soon.

No. It doesn’t prove a thing regarding His return.

Or is it a Strawman?

There’s a false equivalence when people say that the fact that the Old Covenant has been superceded by the New Covenant means God has finished with the Jewish people and has no plan to save the nation and bring them into the New Covenant..

…or to say that the present blindness of the Jews in seeking to restart the OT sacrificial system is a proof that the reformation of Israel has no prophetic significance…

False logic.

…..

“Why isn’t the opposite of ‘pro-life’ referred to as ‘pro-death’?”

—Jack Hibbs

…..

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.” (Titus 2:11-14)

No theological jargon here, such as people get tied up with nowadays. We’re looking for Jesus to return, described as His “glorious appearing”. A secret return would not be a “glorious appearing”.

This is our blessed hope. All generations were expected, by God, to be looking for Jesus’ glorious appearing.

And those who died in Christ were not disappointed, for to be “absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”.

And if we should die before Jesus returns we’ll also not be disappointed, and will miss out on nothing.

For when Christ returns He is bringing all those who died in Christ with Him.

He “redeems us from every lawless deed”. He purifies us by washing us in His own blood.

And He gives us a holy zeal to do His good works, to express His goodness to others.

…..

“We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 5:8)

Instant transportation. It’s as if you are standing on the street in London, then you close your eyes for a moment, and when you open your eyes you’re standing on the street in New York. One second before you were in London. Now you’re in New York.

Absent from the body, present with the Lord.

“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” (John 8:44)

The devil was once an Archangel. He was the first liar, and kind of invented lying. He created a lie in his own mind and believed the lie he created. No one lied to him, he thought up the concept all by himself.

Imagine creating a lie and then believing it, knowing it’s a lie?

The devil knows he is lying, but his children don’t seem to know that their father has conned them.

The devil created lying, and therefore it’s in his DNA to lie, and to cause his children to believe a lie.

So, there is a dubious, dark, shadowy spiritual inheritance we have inherited from our father, the devil.

We need to exchange this father of liars for the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We need a new heart.

If we cannot accept what Jesus said then we don’t love the truth. His truth only hurts and offends those still clinging to a lie.

Dem logic:

“We want an open border, because a wall is racist, but we don’t want these people in our cities”

…..

The grace of God can be likened to light, and its absence, to darkness.

……

Yes, God has entirely done away with the Old Covenant by making a New Covenant with the house of Israel. This is the future destiny for the house of Israel, to come into the New Covenant. This is the divine purpose behind God’s promises to Israel, to bring them back into their own land. Jerusalem shall be trodden under the feet of the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles is fulfilled. After the Gentiles have had their opportunity to come into Christ, then it is time for the Jewish people, lastly, to also come into Christ. The Jews will continue to be blinded to the Gospel until the full number of Gentiles comes into the Kingdom. So, they are returning to their land in a blind condition. God is leading them there even though they are blind. And in their blind condition they will seek to build a third Temple and perform animal sacrifices. But this won’t last very long because God will fulfill His promise to the nation to save them as a people. So, it’s folly to think that the present blindness of Israel means God has finished with them. It’s a false logic and a delusion.

See Romans 11.

So… there’s a false equivalence when people say that the fact the Old Covenant has been superceded by the New Covenant then that means God has finished with the Jewish people and has no plan to save the nation and bring them into the New Covenant..

…or to say that the present blindness of the Jews in seeking to restart the OT sacrificial system is a proof that the reformation of Israel has no prophetic significance…

False logic.

Luke 21:24 “And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”

The times of the Gentiles are rapidly coming to a conclusion, which we see in the level of apostasy and delusion in Christendom, though the times and seasons are under the Father’s authority.

The times of the Gentiles coming to a conclusion has to be chronologically linked to the imminent destruction of Babylon (America – phony commercial church – RCC).

……

In times past there have been notable outpourings of the Holy Spirit, such as the Welsh Revival or the Isle of Lewis Revival, and at these times whole communities came under the influence of the Holy Spirit. These events highlight the Sovereignty of God in and over people’s lives. All of our prayers and our efforts to proclaim the Gospel must be from a faith which totally believes in the absolute Sovereignty of God and in expectation of His Sovereign will being performed.

…..

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

What is transpiring when God is working all things for good in someone’s life?

It shows that God’s love covers their whole life and existence.

It shows God’s plan for their life is always under active pursuit and involvement by God.

It shows that God is never passive concerning performing His will and purpose for those who love Him.

And it shows He is not passive in working good in our lives, so that we always experience His goodness toward us, and, in turn, have His goodness worked into our nature.

It shows that our circumstances, however daunting, are not outside His purpose of working all things together for good.

And yet it’s foolish to disarm for the sake of peace. It only encourages aggressors.

……

Someone was talking about the “structure of corporate worship”, and I suggested they look at 1 Cor. 14.

Maybe not what they had in mind.

It will deconstruct their traditional ideas about what church should be.

…..

If people’s minds go blank when they read 1 Cor. 14 it’s because they are seeing what they don’t want to see, which challenges their preconceptions, and their preconceptions only see what they want to see, so they subconsciously block it out, perhaps as an unconscious self protection mechanism. And this could be true of any passage of scripture which challenges someone’s preconceptions.

The collapse of the family precedes the collapse of society.

…..

“Spiritual delight in God arises chiefly from his beauty and perfection, not from the blessings he gives us.”

— Jonathan Edwards

……

The Lord Jesus foretold the future. Some of what He said would happen happened in the first century, and some is taking place now, but the most serious things are yet to come: a time of trouble so great that unless God shortens it no one will survive. Be ready.

…..

Jesus said emphatically, ‘You must be born again!’.

You MUST be.

Why ‘MUST’?

Because the consequences of dying in an un-born-again state are too horrifying to contemplate.

God’s solution to sin, and to us as sinners, is to recreate us into holy people, into His own children.

He does this when we are born again, by faith in Jesus Christ resulting in true repentance of our sins.

……

To miss out on God is to miss out big time.

…..

That many people erroneously believed Jesus was returning at a certain time, or even set dates, has no bearing upon when He will return.

It’s certainly a cautionary lesson against date setting.

And Peter said one of the signs of the Lord’s return is people will grow weary of the expectation, and mock the idea, and say, ‘Where is the promise of His coming?’ …that is, they become disillusioned and don’t believe He can return in their lifetime.

….

There is something greater than life itself.

It’s Him.

….

The ironic thing about pride is that we have nothing to be proud of if everything is by the grace of God.

…..

For all the people who will die this year, for them personally, it’s the same as if Jesus returned this year.

So the timing of the Lord’s return, though important, is not the most important thing.

The most important thing is we are ready to leave this earth and stand before Him today.

It’s good He told us what would happen before He comes so we can count the cost of following Him.

No one will be able to say they weren’t warned that terrible times are coming.

…..

The wisest person in the world is simply the one who believes and puts into practice what Jesus said.

See Matthew 7:24-27.

……

“Let all that you do be done with love.”

1 Corinthians 16:14

……

There is a direct correlation between prayers of faith and God moving in people’s lives. Pray in faith and you will see God working in people’s lives.

……

As there is only one Jesus, there can only be one Gospel.

…..

The greatest absurdity man has come up with so far is the notion that everything accidentally made itself.

…..

It is very common for people’s understanding of scripture to be shaped by their fears or desires, and not by what it actually says.

…..

After a glorious letter, magnifying the glorious Son of God, the King of Glory, John ends it with this sober admonition:

“Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.” (1 John 5:21)

Amazing, that after having experienced His love, glory and power we still need to be reminded to keep ourselves from idols, but we do.

…..

Facing reality, however scripture describes that reality, is paramount, and for the person of sound mind, harsh realities don’t change anything regarding their faith in God, or their belief in His power and love.

What we have oftentimes in such discussions as these are neurotic rebounding reactions.

For example, if someone reads the book of Revelation, then decides they need to hide away from society and not preach the Gospel, it simply means they are neurotic. It has no bearing on the reality of the facts which God has declared will take place.

…..

As a created being, perhaps the most important thing you can do is open your mouth and speak to your Creator.

…..

Forgiveness from Jesus Christ is FAR more than getting off the hook, it is the entrance into the amazing love of God and becoming His child and becoming like Him so that we can have fellowship and true friendship with Him.

……

When God made human beings He had something more in mind than just 70 or 80 years. He had forever in mind.

…..

The high points of my day are when I turn aside and get alone for a moment and look up into Heaven and just worship my Father, and His Son, overwhelmed with awe at who He is.

…..

From a Biblical perspective it’s better to think of yourself as just another human being of Adam’s race, and not black or white or anything else, because that is what you are.

And if you have been joined to Christ by the new birth and are a new creature in Him, a member of His body, then even more reason to drop the distinctions.

It doesn’t mean you have to be ashamed of your natural or cultural heritage, it just means it no longer defines who you are.

…..

This is just my opinion, based on my understanding of 1 Cor. 14 and other passages:

If you desire to worship the LORD in song, do so, as much as your heart desires. Sing all night if you want to. You surely have enough time to. And you can sing while you drive, or go about your tasks (unless you want to spare the listeners).

However, when you come together as the assembly (church) get straight into prayer and the word of God.

A few songs would be fine, singing to one another in scriptural songs.

The early church did not have a “worship service”.

It was about building one another up in the LORD.

Might sound strange to you.

But test it with scripture.

…..

Spiritual means supernatural.

…..

Jesus said that the love of many would grow cold in the last days.

For example, how many people are there who care about your soul?

……

If psychology is effective, why didn’t Jesus use it?

Someone might say, ‘Jesus didn’t know about psychology, but had He known He would have used it’.

No.

Even if Israel happened to be flooded with psychologists back then, He still wouldn’t have used psychology.

See, whatever Jesus did, it worked.

Let’s follow Him, understanding how He set the captives free.

…..

a. What is the Spirit of God doing in the world today?

b. What part, if any, do you have in the work the Spirit of God is doing in the world today?

…..

Kingdoms come, kingdoms go, but the word of the LORD remains forever.

The word of the LORD is the only true constant in this ever changing world.

……

Those politicians who incentivized illegal immigration should open their doors to these poor people and have them camping in their yard.

They don’t want a wall at the border, but they want walls around their mansions.

They are using these poor people as political pawns.

…..

Said no one to Jesus,

“Jesus, you’re into religion, that’s your thing, but I’m just not into religion…”

Or…

“Yeah… raising the dead, making cripples walk, and making the blind to see… that’s an interesting religion, that’s a nice religion, Jesus, but too bad I’m not religious!”

…..

People put a lot of emphasis on personal appearance, but under our skin we all look pretty much the same.

On the Queen’s passing

September 10, 2022

After hearing the news of the Queen’s passing, and getting alone to process it, I must admit I got a little teary, like as in losing a friend.

She has always been there. Some of our earliest childhood memories concern the Queen.

Personally, I wouldn’t call her a leader. I don’t think she led anyone. I would call her a figurehead of an era, a more civilized era.

Whatever you believe about empires, it will make no difference as to their existence or continuity.

Just a passing thought: if you were in her shoes, born for the throne, living in the lap of luxury all your life, never having to do any physical labor, having everyone bow to you…. and this is how you lived for 96 years… would you still be a gracious and humble person?

“Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” (Matthew 24:11-12)

a. For love to grow cold it had to be there to begin with, so this is referring to Christians.

b. The overall effect or influence of false prophets produces lawlessness (loose living) in Christians, which in turn leads to them losing their love for the LORD.

It shows that false prophets preach a false gospel of cheap grace, whereby people think the grace and love of God will still apply to them if they are unrepentant or redefine what sin is so as to justify their chosen lifestyle.

“For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Jude 4)

Worship in song is just one of many ways to worship God, and while it is wonderful, it’s not the most important vehicle of worship.

Whatever sin in others repulses, grieves or hurts us, we need to acknowledge that the same sin lurks within our own sin nature, somewhere deep in our heart, at least in some measure, as we all inherited a sin nature.

Walking in the Spirit is predicated upon a person knowing the reality of the Holy Spirit indwelling them all the time, therefore, moment by moment it is this reality which governs their thoughts, words and actions. If their thoughts, words and actions, choices and decisions, are in harmony with the indwelling Holy Spirit, and they know His witness within them, having peace with what He is at peace with, and being disturbed by what disturbs Him, they live, moment by moment by this dynamic.

You can’t see God, but you can see the things He has made. Nothing exists which He didn’t create. So, all the things He has made are, themselves, a message to us about what He is like.

And you can see Jesus, His Son.

Jesus said, “If you’ve seen me, you’ve seen the Father”.

God is utterly good. He is thoroughly good. Absolutely good.

The earliest churches were relational. This meant they consisted of a set of relationships or friendships. If the love failed then the relationships failed and the church no longer existed. But later the church devolved into an institution, and this way it could continue to exist even without love, without true relationship, and without the presence of the Holy Spirit.

One of the vital elements of a life of worship is to be in utter awe of God.

Obviously, the LORD Jesus Christ is our ultimate role model.

Now, to think that He had a ministry without the help of social media, and without the help of a religious organization, and without glorifying, promoting and advertising Himself?

It means that nothing can prevent you having a ministry and fulfilling it if God has given you one.

“God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.

Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.

And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us…” (Acts 17:24-27)

Man can’t give anything to God because He already owns everything.

When man looks up at the vastness of the universe does he think he can lend God a helping hand?

Man can only receive from God.

Man must believe God.

A true worshiper of God in Christ understands that there’s nothing they have which they did not receive (see 1 Cor. 4:7).

“For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.” (Jer. 2:13)

(A cistern was a drinking water tank)

They went after a substitute for God.

This can be in the worldly or spiritual sense: money, fame and sex can be just as much an idol as a religious statue can.

And religious activity can also become an idol, a substitute for God.

How many things in modern life are substitutes for God?

The LORD said, “They have forsaken me”.

They replaced Him.

And in doing so they no longer could drink at the fountain of living water. They were trying to drink from a supply of their own making.

And if you don’t drink the living water then you have no life.

“Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” (John 4:10)

We take it to mean, then, that if we don’t seek first His Kingdom and righteousness then these things we need won’t be added to us.

A promise like this takes on a whole new perspective in a time of famine or financial collapse.

“Seek first” means our top priority in life.

To “seek” the Kingdom means a perpetual position of the heart which desires to know Him more and do His will as an instrument of the King, as His servant or emissary, and as a “royal priesthood” making intercession for the people.

When people gaze at the wonderful pics of deep space some may wonder about whether there’s aliens out there, while others might be in wonder about the Person who created it all.

“The heavens declare His righteousness, And all the peoples see His glory.”

(Psalm 97:6)

Is there life on other planets?

Some general comments:

  • If God created life on other planets then one thing is certain, and that is they will be destroyed at the same time this earth is destroyed, and then remade.
  • UFOs and reported alien life forms are either angels or demons.
  • The present growing interest in UFOs and aliens is due to demonic influence.
  • Some scientists desperately want life to exist elsewhere, and it seems like their motivation, at least in part, is that they think this would prove the Bible wrong.

Yet, even if they found life elsewhere it wouldn’t prove anything concerning the Bible because the Bible does not mention such a thing.

“Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.” (Revelation 21:1)

“Heaven” here means the universe.

So, if there is life on other planets they will go the same way as life on this planet goes, because the whole universe is going to be replaced.

Scripture is silent on whether life exists elsewhere.

But if it does, their days are numbered, as it is for those here on earth.

“…Building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit…” (Jude 1:20)

Many have assumed that “praying in the Holy Spirit” means only praying in an unknown language, but that’s ridiculous, because that would mean when you are praying in your own language you are not praying in the Holy Spirit, and then, if you’re not praying in the Holy Spirit you must be praying in the flesh: just with your own mind, with no guidance of the Holy Spirit?

So, obviously, when we pray in either a known or unknown language we are praying in the Holy Spirit if indeed it is the Holy Spirit inspiring and guiding our prayers into fulfilling the will of God.

So, the text tells us that prayer should be done in the Holy Spirit and not without Him, and that such prayer builds us up in our faith, strengthening our faith.

To glorify God is the ultimate, because for this reason He created us, and it’s only through this truth we can know Him and enjoy and be fulfilled in Him forever.

Quote

“We are always only three meals away from anarchy”.

Abortion is perhaps the biggest issue facing Americans right now.

And abortion is primarily a moral issue before it is a political one.

So, you can’t separate politics from morality.

Abortion has put a spotlight on a great moral divide in society, between those who believe it is murder, and those who don’t. This is a great moral chasm, a great divide.

Because murder is the worst crime.

So, if politics and morality can’t be separated, can you separate morality from belief in God?

Is there any fixed morality if God doesn’t exist?

So, every issue of man comes back to him having an issue with His Creator.

……

Abortion’s legality could easily be settled democratically by taking this poll: “Are you thankful you were not aborted?” Yes or No.

Those people who survived an abortion could press for attempted murder charges, right?

In the devil’s very first encounter with men and women he posed as a theological expert:

“Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Gen. 3:4-5)

……

As marriage is a holy covenant with God, then, holiness underpins this covenant. Holiness is the supreme attribute which sustains a marriage, though when we’re young we might not appreciate this. But as we age together with our spouse, holiness is the one attribute we appreciate in them above all other attributes.

The answer is in the human heart corrupted by sin.

……

If something in Christianity contradicts the truth of scripture, then that thing will depend on ignorance of scripture to be sustained. There will need to be enough ignorant people to keep it going.

If doing yoga or meditating could give you peace then so could drugs or alcohol, if you define “peace” as a feeling.

The Bible defines peace differently, as the state of a relationship between two persons. These persons are either at peace with one another, or at enmity.

Jesus made peace between God and men by paying the price for all sin when He died, removing the enmity between God and man.

So, true peace is when God is at peace with you, and you accept and believe this fact.

He is our peace.

The worst state a person can be in is when demons give them a false peace and they think it is God.

The devil always tries to impersonate God or take His place.

Spiritual gifts were used during the church meeting.

It presumes everyone was free to use their gift.

It totally rules out a traditional church service.

If a word which a brother or sister shares (being scripture truth) builds up your faith, reveals Jesus, encourages you, disciplines you, brings the fear of God, brings light or clarity etc. THEN THAT IS A SPIRITUAL GIFT which is operating.

“Church”, which is a gathering of people, not a building or organization, only goes as deep as the genuine friendships between the bros and sisters.

First, it is friendship with God, then with each other. We become a friend of God, and He helps us to have deep and lasting and blessed friendships with His people.

Without that real friendship, without genuine real life relationship, it’s not a church, it’s only a shell.

This means that Jesus Christ cannot be known through the physical senses.

God, obviously, can reveal Himself to the physical senses, but He chooses not to.

If Jesus spoke to you by an audible voice, then how would you learn to hear the voice of the Spirit in your inner man?

Your ears would always be listening out, but would your heart be listening moment by moment?

God communicates by His Spirit to our spirit: Spirit to spirit.

Understanding the word of God is purely by His Spirit.

“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

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.

In my first few years as a Christian I used to read the Bible and was blessed with a faith to believe every word, but I still had a weakness that, somehow, truth seemed to carry more authority if it came from the lips of a famous person. If a famous preacher said it, it seemed to carry more weight than reading the same thing in the Bible. I guess it’s human frailty. Now I only care for what is written in scripture. As long as people teach what is written in scripture I’m happy, but a truth doesn’t carry more weight just because someone famous teaches it, and nor does it lose power if a nobody teaches it.

The whole point of imputed righteousness is to produce practical righteousness.

Only the man to whom God does not impute sin can be free from its power.

“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, And whose sins are covered; Blessed is the man to whom the LORD shall not impute sin.” (Rom. 4:7-8)

When God forgives us, in Christ, He also empowers us.

What good would it be to be forgiven, but still a slave to sin, and still repeating the sins which He forgave?
