The richest man on earth

September 20, 2017

Can you guess who will very soon be the richest man on earth? It’s Jesus. The moment He steps foot back on earth He will be the richest Man on earth, by whichever means you define wealth.

Date-setting?

September 20, 2017

A comment i made on FB: Regarding true “signs of the Lord’s return” the signs signal His coming is near, and NOT that He is coming on the date the sign occurs, or even close to that date. Amen?

Doing the works He gives us

September 20, 2017

Working for God is about simply knowing which work He has created for you to do and doing it, truly a servant to King relationship, knowing when He creates the opportunity or opens the door. (yes, sons of God are also servants of God, if they are true sons) …. and we see this pattern in the Lord Jesus’ walking in the works the Father gave Him to do, and also in the Apostles and Prophets.

The false “anointing”

September 20, 2017

Just one of the traits of the false “anointing” is there is no conviction of sin, as Jesus said when the true Holy Spirit comes He will convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.

It’s like a spiritual circus, there’s plenty of action, supposed miracles, but you know some of the people personally, and you know that while they are all excited about the “anointing” their hearts are still unrepentant, they have no intention of forsaking their old life and following Jesus.

We’ve gotta understand the true Holy Spirit doesn’t entertain people in such ways.

A balanced person

September 19, 2017

Jesus rejoiced, loved, wept and was angry, running the full gamut of human emotions, so if we follow Him it will be the same, and for the same reasons, and this is a balanced person.

You don’t believe what He said?

September 19, 2017

A comment I made on FB: We believe in the Person of Jesus, we believe all that He said is true, all that He promised is true, and all that He warned is true, so the person who disobeys or disregards the things which Jesus said does not really believe in Him, for how could we believe in Him but not the things which He said?

Trust and Faith

September 19, 2017

Sometimes people say, “We prayed sincerely and God didn’t answer, why?” Surely such incidences teach us to trust God. When He doesn’t answer the prayer and yet you continue to trust Him just the same, regardless, then there’s no problem with your faith, because faith is trust.

Being true to a Person

September 19, 2017

Jesus claimed to be “the truth” therefore we know something is true by whether it is in conformity to Him.

Truth is about being true to a Person, for Jesus is “the truth”.

A view of yourself?

September 18, 2017

A comment i made on FB: “having a view of oneself” suggests an independent, self-referring view, rather than when the Holy Spirit shows us God’s view of us, whether for encouragement or correction. The Holy Spirit should maintenance the relationship, and we respond, and this is why you will barely find any reference in scripture to “having a view of yourself” …

but you’re coming from a post-Christian culture where viewing yourself is more important than denying yourself.

On Judgment Day He will not ask us “What is your view of yourself?” because it would be totally irrelevant, and neither is it relevant now, but knowing what God’s view of us is is crucial.

 

……… and …. if you do want to have a view of yourself then be my guest, it’s your choice…

No mystery as to church function

September 18, 2017

All serious Bible students know how the New Testament church functioned, so “how” is never the issue, the issue is, are we willing to pay the price? The foundation of the traditional church system is the human ego and lust for power and control, even monetary gain, and that’s why it is so popular and the New Testament pattern not.

The nature of excuses

September 17, 2017

Have you ever heard an excuse offered for avoiding spiritual responsibility which is not pathetic?

Why doesn’t God show Himself?

September 17, 2017

“Well, why doesn’t God just come down here and show himself to the world?

He did, and they crucified Him.”

~ Unknown

Why He didn’t save Himself

September 17, 2017

Jesus faced only two options, either He save Himself, and we be lost, or refuse to save Himself, and we be saved, and He chose the latter.

Illusionist

September 17, 2017

The devil is the master illusionist, making nothing appear to be something great.

100 years from now

September 16, 2017

A hundred years from now where will you be?

No solutions?

September 16, 2017

What does it mean for people who don’t have any solutions to intractable geo-political problems to mock world leaders?

Not reality

September 16, 2017

A reality in which Jesus Christ is not the center is not reality.

Siding with Theologians

September 16, 2017

While I don’t support the theological paradigm (that is, the early church didn’t have a separate category or discipline labeled “theology”) I do tend to side more with Theologians than with those who are unwitting pawns contributing to the dumbing-down of Christianity.

The “dumbing-down” folk always suggest that if you understand the Bible it will be a barrier to you understanding “grace” and some even pin-point the Bible as the main obstacle to “grace”, as if Bible-illiteracy were the golden gateway to true enlightenment. If you have to disengage your brain it’s not grace.

Only two options

September 16, 2017

The first Christians were, either, telling the truth they met Jesus after He rose from the dead, OR, they successfully carried out the greatest hoax in history, even dying for the lie they created. Which do you believe?

Every generation

September 15, 2017

“You have been a shelter Lord
To every generation.
A sanctuary from the storm
To every generation Lord

Before the birth
Of the world’s great wonders
And lofty mountains high
Oh Lord You were there
The Lord throughout all of time

You’ve seen the years
Pass in untold numbers
As in a single night
You’ve seen the lifetime of man
Fade quickly before the light”
