Fragile

April 5, 2020

Life is fragile.

 

The Holy Spirit is not.

Surprised?

April 5, 2020

Why would we be surprised when the Lord’s words begin to be fulfilled?

Unmoved

April 5, 2020

If the whole religious landscape is swept away, are you unmoved, already possessing eternal life in Christ Jesus?

Be ready

April 5, 2020

On Judgment Day no one can play the victim card, and no one can plead ignorance.

If “church” closes, then no salvation?

Prophecy?

April 4, 2020

The NT gift of prophecy has little to do with predicting events.

 

But in recent years the majority have come to believe it is all about predicting.

 

The present crisis seems to have dampened the enthusiasm of internet “seers” and “prophets” for the time being.

 

Their number had truly reached plague proportions just prior to the crisis.

 

They would continuously pop up on my feed in LIVE prophecy babblings, mostly young African men, announcing to anyone listening that their “destiny partner” will find them before the months end, and extraordinary financial favor will be yours next month.

 

Pity that these offers have expiry dates.

 

Anyway, amid the proliferation of predictions of financial heaven, not one predicted what would actually happen.

 

How about that?

 

This is the way God teaches us.

 

He shows us the emptiness of false things.

 

Sometimes it hurts.

 

Through this lets learn that real prophecy is the testimony of Jesus. (Revelation 19:10)

Where does life come from?

April 4, 2020

Jesus said:

 

“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”

 

John 6:63

 

That is, the eternal life of God can’t be self generated by our physical being, actions or by our thoughts, it has to come from outside us, from the Spirit of God, for it is the Spirit who gives life. We can’t give life to ourselves.

 

And the words of God are spirit and life. All the inspired word of God is the word of Jesus.

 

If we believe and act upon the words of God we have heard and received we have the Spirit and His life.

 

Even this verse we just read: believe it and act upon it.

Made for another world

April 4, 2020

There’s nothing in this world which can satisfy the truly born again child of God follower of Jesus. They are born from above and made for another world.

He had to allow it

April 4, 2020

See Hebrews 12:25-29

Revelation 17 and 18

 

What we are seeing now is the destruction of the false “Christian” religious system.

 

True Christians are not at all phased by it.

 

Even if every church building is destroyed, the true church goes on from glory to glory, because we belong to a Kingdom which cannot be shaken.

 

It’s God’s goodness and mercy that He is allowing everything not built on the foundation of Jesus to collapse.

 

You had to see it sooner or later, or what would have happened? You would have headed to judgment trusting in fake TV preachers, and grand ecclesiastical edifices and shows which have nothing to do with Jesus Christ.

Eternal

April 3, 2020

Only those who possess eternal life understand and appreciate eternity and eternal things

The fool

April 3, 2020

The Bible is full of warnings.

 

A true child of God heeds the warnings.

 

The fool doesn’t.

Knowing Him

April 3, 2020

To follow and know Jesus Christ means every facet and aspect of who you are and what you do is touched by Him – your whole being is touched, there’s no aspect of your being where He does not have access and influence.

First step

April 3, 2020

The most primary issue each person must settle is, Is the Bible true?

 

This is the first step.

 

If it’s not true, then do whatever you like and die, with the “comfort” of knowing your life has no meaning.

 

But if it’s true, then that’s a whole different story.

 

And, how will you know it’s true unless you read it?

 

Someone may react, My life has meaning without the Bible!

 

How do you know that?

 

Who told you?

 

By what authoritative source of truth do you know your life has meaning?

What He thinks

April 2, 2020

Do you think God thinks about you?

What do you think God thinks about you?

 

Religion is one

April 2, 2020

In Bible prophecy I can’t see a One World Religion, but I see a world which believes all religions are one. And we are nearly already there.

 

And, they are correct, in that all religions are the same in their basic concept of how they try to control human behavior and police morality, but the important distinction is that to truly follow Jesus Christ puts one outside the parameters of all religions.

New World

April 2, 2020

Yes, there is a beautiful New World coming, the Bible says, but it’s going to be Jesus World, on His terms, and He is perfectly fair, in that those who don’t like the idea won’t have to be there.

It comes from God

April 2, 2020

If our strength comes from God, we will be strong.

Putting God to a foolish test

April 2, 2020

Apply this to the Corona virus:

 

“Then he brought Him to Jerusalem, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here. 10 For it is written:

 

‘He shall give His angels charge over you,

To keep you,’

 

11 and,

 

‘In their hands they shall bear you up,

Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’”

 

12 And Jesus answered and said to him, “It has been said, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ”

 

Luke 4:9-12

 

One translation says, “You shall not put the Lord your God to a foolish test!”

 

How does this apply to Corona?

 

Simple. Don’t put God to a foolish test.

 

Foolhardy behavior is putting God to a foolish test.

 

Foolish is not faith.

Return to sender?

April 2, 2020

A money preacher stands there sending Corona back to the devil, not understanding that God sent the virus, and that he’s one of the reasons God sent it.

The most painful words

April 2, 2020

“Thy will be done.”

 

The most painful words for modern Christianity.
