Increasing revelation

November 22, 2017

With increasing revelation of how great Jesus really is also comes increasing revelation of how empty this world really is.

Everything

November 22, 2017

Thank Him for everything…

…because He gave you everything.

What matters

November 21, 2017

It only matters we have faith in Jesus Christ, then live according to and true to that faith.

Heroes

November 21, 2017

Mum and Dad should be the first heroes a child has, and the most profound and lasting heroes, apart from Jesus.

 

Parents, this is how it should be.

The “christ”?

November 21, 2017

A comment i made on FB:

.
“Many shall come saying, ‘I am the christ!’”, Jesus said.

.
“The christ” means “the anointed one”, so this means anyone who claims to be unique and exclusive in their office, the only channel to God, and this has been the characteristic of all the popes and all false prophets, like Dowie, Smith, White, Branham, etc., and of course, the founders of new religions (without naming names).

Now…… they might be clever enough to not say, outright, they are the only one, the top of the heap, but they may imply it, and talking to their devotees will indicate whether they are “false christs” or not.

 

Parallel

November 21, 2017

Jesus said His Kingdom grows AND the world gets worse, together, in parallel – that is, the advance of the spiritual Kingdom does not equate with the world getting better, just the opposite. One way to make sense of this is to acknowledge that His people, though living in the world are not of the world, they are always separate, as light is from darkness. The advance of the true Kingdom heightens the border or line between light and darkness, and never blurs it.

Occult in the church?

November 21, 2017

Occult in the church  is to move from true dependence on the Father, thru Jesus, to acting independently – thinking you possess the power to do as you will. It makes power a “thing”, a force which one can use independently, or something you can “tap into”, and THAT is the occult, in essence.

Pharisees?

November 21, 2017

Tozer said Christianity destroys itself when it professes a truth it does not obey.
Which is what Jesus warned, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy: not living what you claim to believe.

So, it’s celebrity mega-church pastors, televangelists and merchandisers who are the Pharisees of the modern age, and not those who are calling for true repentance.

Cultural

November 20, 2017

The disturbing thing about cultural Christianity is the high percentage of fake Christians.

Winning

November 20, 2017

A comment to my son: Don’t worry about winning, do your best, and leave the winning up to God.

Necessary pain

November 20, 2017

Taking up and bearing our cross means bearing necessary pain, unavoidable pain, and moving on regardless of it.

Above?

November 20, 2017

How could a true Christian ever desire to be above his brother?

Honor

November 20, 2017

The only real and lasting honor we have is the honor which is ours by virtue of being in Christ, which causes us to live honorable lives.

A contradiction

November 19, 2017

You are much greater than any idol, so if you do worship an idol it’s a contradiction, you’ve got things around the wrong way.

Hearing

November 19, 2017

Either God hears our prayer, or He doesn’t.

If He doesn’t, don’t waste your time.

If He does, devote yourself completely to prayer.

Knowing

November 19, 2017

If we don’t know ourselves, how can we possibly know God?

The only chance we have of knowing ourselves is if we know God, He will make sure of it.

Why on earth?

November 18, 2017

If we’re doing something God condemns, why on earth would we continue doing it?

Persuaded

November 18, 2017

“In Hebrews 13:17, most translations tell us to “obey” those who are leaders in the church.

In the Greek, that verb is in the middle voice and actually means to “be persuaded”.

Yet it is often mistranslated “obey” in the active voice.

Properly translated, we are to be persuaded by those who lead. Otherwise, they have no authority.

There is NO command in the New Testament to blindly follow any leader …

And no mandate for authoritarianism over God’s people.”
