The Holy Spirit which is in Jack is not a better Holy Spirit than the Holy Spirit which is in Tom.

…..

The most pervasive form of racism, now, and over history, is antisemitism.

Antichristianism could also be seen as equivalent to racism.

How can a Christian be antisemitic when Jesus is Jewish?

……

When you’re tired sit back and put on the audio Bible. It’s some good preaching.

……

For the Christian, our relationship to God directly affects our relationships to others.

…..

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

Ephesians 2:8-10

Time and time again surveys have found that many who identify as Christian think they will only make it to heaven if they are good enough.

These are not Christians.

Why?

Because they have not been saved by grace, through faith, and have not recieved salvation as the gift of God.

They are trying to earn the unearnable.

Salvation is a gift because it can’t be earned.

Without Christ no one has a chance, because salvation can’t be earned.

If it could have been earned then Jesus would never have gone to the trouble of suffering and dying for you.

….

What good is it to be religious, spiritual, philosophical, or all wise and all knowing if you’re not saved?

……

For the money preacher, his audience is also his market, his ticket to material wealth.

How does he extract money from his audience? By selling his message.

Why do people buy his message? Because they think it will help them get wealthy, just like their teacher.

The money preacher covets the money of his audience.

His audience becomes more covetous as they follow his teachings.

Covetous preachers appeal to covetousness and produce covetous people, and, hence, more covetous preachers are born.

……

The saddest thing is when a person lives in darkness and thinks it’s normal.

…..

The judgment of Babylon (Rev. 17-18).

The woman rides the beast, but in the end the beast destroys her.

A Christianity in agreement and friendship with the world ends up being destroyed by the world.

In the Book of Revelation we see two distinct judgments of God.

First, Babylon is judged, and God uses other nations to be His instruments of judgment on her.

Then, after a short space of time, those other nations are judged, but this time directly by God.

Why is Babylon judged before the rest of the world is judged?

Babylon is a misrepresentation of Christianity.

To be a false Christian is far, far worse in the sight of God than not being a Christian.

Hypocrisy is far worse than open rebellion.

……

One day you’ll realize that the best friend you ever had was the one who prayed for you every day.

“The world’s most premature baby has celebrated his first birthday after beating 0% odds of surviving” (CNN)

So, is CNN (propaganda outlet for the Democrats) admitting that such premature babies are, in fact, human beings after all?

Or, would killing that same baby be okay?

…..

The shot is not a V.

It is experimental technology, totally unlike any previous V.

It’s still under trial.

And this is even more imperative as it is experimental technology.

It seems a giant leap of faith to take a shot which is still on trial and its safety won’t be scientifically established at least for another year.

Because Big Tech and Government are assuring people the V is perfectly safe, even though it’s still under trial and not clinically proven safe, then, if people develop health problems because of it they should be able to sue such for misleading them with misleading information.

……

“And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.”

(Zechariah 14:12)

You better leave them Jews alone!

The text says every nation will fight against Jerusalem.

Why?

They want to move the Jews out and the Palestinians in.

The Jews will be seen as illegally occupying Palestinian territory.

They either want them out, or annihilated.

A few days ago Palestinian demonstrators in New York were calling for the genocide of the Jews.

This is the Woke religion.

It will eventually brainwash the whole world, so that all nations will fight against Jerusalem.

Why should the Jews be allowed to live there? Because God gave them that land.

People don’t believe God gave them that land because they don’t believe God’s word.

And they don’t believe God’s word because they are enemies of God.

So, scripture says the Lord will return and settle the score.

It won’t be pretty.

Please go back to the top and reread the scripture I quoted.

……

If you don’t know what the promise of God is, how can you receive it?

…..

The Lord Jesus is the source of blessing, and He is the blessing: the source and giver of life, and He is the life: the giver of rewards, and the reward, itself.

……

Our readiness to forgive is a good indicator that we’re aware of how much God has forgiven us, and of how much the love of Christ has been formed in us.

…..

The quintessence of hypocrisy is the Liberal Progressive Christian, even though all kinds of Christians can be prone to hypocrisy.

It would have been much better for them if they had never tagged the name of Christ than to drag that precious name down into the cesspool with them.

……

Many times, interpretation of a Bible text becomes a substitute for believing it. A person’s non belief might be concealed by their interpretation. Their interpretation might be a disingenuous way to avoid admitting they don’t believe it.

Kingdom or Church?

June 19, 2021

Oftentimes we see Christians pitting the Kingdom against the Church, saying the Kingdom is where it is at, not the Church.

It’s a foolish debate because they are not defining Church as it is defined in the New Testament.

The Lord Jesus spoke that He will build His Kingdom AND His Church, which is His body.

He was not taking on two separate projects.

His Church, that is, His people, are the expression of His Kingdom, for now, until His visible Kingdom comes when He visibly and physically comes to judge the nations.

So, obviously, what we know of “church” barely resembles His Kingdom.

The Church is a Kingdom of Priests, scripture says.

It’s not a concert you attend.

It’s an expression of His Kingdom.

So, it’s a serious issue.

Especially when we see Christians isolating themselves from others, not fellowshipping. They are missing the Kingdom.

What’s the difference between education and brainwashing?

Education informs of all world views and asks the individual to make their choice.

Brainwashing bans certain world views in order to produce conformity to an ideology.

What we have today is brainwashing.

When a Christian speaks out against evil is doesn’t necessarily mean they are trying to establish a political theocratic earthly kingdom.

It could simply mean they have character.

……

Allegedly “FBI operatives were involved in organizing and carrying out the Jan 6th Capitol riot”.

Hope the truth about this comes out.

……

It’s quite normal for Christians, who believe Jesus is the only way to God, to get along with people of other faiths, and to love them and help them. Millions of them do.

Accepting another person doesn’t mean you are forced to accept their beliefs when you believe they are wrong.

Being forced to accept other peoples beliefs or values is a violation of human rights.

We reject the anti Conservative narrative which labels all who believe Jesus is the only way as haters and intolerant of other religions, and we believe that such a narrative is, itself, hateful.

Christian, the main reason you are still here is to proclaim the Gospel.

…..

Jesus only wants people who will do what He says.

To obey the Lord means to obey the truth, to choose righteousness and shun evil, and to desire His leading and guidance, knowing you are fulfilling His calling, and not your own.

When we trust Him we are obeying His word, for He has commanded that we must trust Him.

These are the last days, and good days to understand and experience the Fatherhood of God.

……

Faith and repentance are really two sides of the same coin: both describe relationship with God, so they are two aspects of that relationship.

……

“…Out of weakness they were made strong…”

Hebrews 11:34

…..

Only a perfect person can enter into Heaven and the presence of God, because nothing sinful can enter there, scripture says.

And only the sacrifice of Jesus Christ can make us perfect in the sight of God.

His perfect righteousness is imputed to us who believe.

This is why Jesus is the only way to God.

…..

“None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.” (Heb. 8:11)

In this, the New Covenant, all know the Lord. So, where we see elitism and hierarchy it’s a sign that all don’t know the Lord. When all know the Lord those things can’t exist. And when all know the Lord then all serve Him, all are His instruments.

It always happens that those who know the Lord become His instruments.

Think about this, if a church today truly represented the New Covenant, then all, from the least to the greatest, would know the Lord.

……

The Bible says God is love, and God demonstrates or asks us to examine His love for us by the fact that He gave His only Son to die for us.

Love existed before men and women were created. The Father loved the Son in eternity, which has no beginning or end.

Men and women only have a concept of love because God gave them the ability to understand what it is.

Of course, the love of God far transcends natural human love, because it is selfless love.

Human love is tainted by sin.

The love of Christ is pure and holy.

….

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matt. 7:21-23)

Here we have “Christians” who seem to have all the right beliefs, confessing Jesus as Lord, and perhaps they are notable pastors or evangelists, casting out demons, healing the sick, preaching the Gospel, but they never truly repented of their sin, and they were never born again, and never had the true Holy Spirit, and they end up in hell.

You could be following such a person.

Check for the love of money, which is idolatry, love of power, love of the praise of men, love of titles, of self promotion, of loose morals and ethics, which, when consistently practiced as a lifestyle, indicate a person has not truly repented.

……

The evil of man knows no bounds when he is turning his back on God.

Liberal Progressives are always confused about where to draw the line between decent and indecent, between what is acceptable and what is off limits, because they have no moral absolutes.

The Holy Spirit was sent to help us because it’s impossible to live for God by ourselves. Whatever your situation, are you looking at it by what you can do, or by what the Holy Spirit can do in you and through you?

……

If you can find out what it is, exactly, about the Bible that offends you, then you’ve isolated your real problem, and your real problem is a problem with God.

……

Jesus said, “If you continue in my word you are my disciples indeed, and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free!”

d. Become less dependent on luxuries and comforts. Become a tough soldier of Christ, enduring hardship.

e. Don’t concern yourself as to the timing of the catching up.

f. Don’t concern yourself as to which of the groups of saints mentioned in the book you belong to, because God decides that, not us. We don’t choose that. Our responsibility is to be holy and faithful.

g. Know that you are not appointed to wrath. The wrath of God could fall on your nation, but not on you.

Mark 10:29-30

Commented that Calvinists don’t believe the warnings in scripture are addressed to them.

I replied, no, they don’t believe the warnings, because they don’t believe it’s possible for them to fall away.

The warnings are not merely about losing rewards, but of being ultimately rejected by Christ.

To say it is impossible for a believer to fall away is the same as saying the warnings are only to false converts.

When God reveals Jesus to a person it doesn’t imply He is forcing their will.

So, in such cases, He chose to reveal Himself to that person, yet without forcing their will.

If they respond to that revelation it’s not because they are forced to respond.

It has to be our decision.

As marriage is a picture of salvation, the Bridegroom calling His Bride, then in natural marriage, the bridegroom only wants to marry the bride who wants to be married to him. He wouldn’t want to marry a bride who didnt want to be married to him.

The woman has to have a choice in the matter.

We can also say, that when an amazing gift is offered to us, it kind of makes up our mind for us.

With the marriage analogy, the bride doesn’t earn her place as a bride because the man has already chosen her, and therefore there is nothing she needs to do to get him to marry her if he has already decided and chosen her. All that is there for her to do is to accept the proposal.

So, this is a picture of our salvation.

Jesus died for all, the scrioture says, so if anyone believes on Him, and accepts Him, His promises, and all He has done, then that act of acceptance is not a “work” as in trying to be saved by good works. She can’t boast that she accepted the proposal.

If I won a million dollars in the lottery and then went down to the bank and signed for it, accepting it, I can’t boast that by accepting it I earned it or achieved it, or deserved it.

I’ve heard people say that if people have a free will to choose then that means they have earned their salvation, which is not true.

…….

The wonder of God’s absolute Sovereignty is that He can work His will without violating or taking away man’s freewill.

That’s what He does. No one can figure out how He does it, but He does it anyway. It is beyond the capacity of the human mind.

Generally, people don’t like things beyond the capacity of their mind.

False teaching is not to openly turn people away from God, but to make them feel close to God while not truly repentant in their heart of their sin and pride. So it offers a substitute for God.

Money preachers twist scripture to make covetousness appear as if it’s not a sin, but a virtue.

……

“But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”” (Luke 10:29)

See how this man wanted to justify his lack of love for people and still think himself righteous?

To do this he had to invent a doctrine which says, my neighbor doesn’t actually mean my neighbor.

And Jesus straightens him out.

Jesus exposes and removes the doctrinal loophole the man was trying to create in order to justify his own sin.

……

The essence of false teaching is to justify wrong action. This has been true from the very first false teaching, “you shall not die” , which satan preached to Adam and Eve.

Anyone drawn to false teaching is drawn by his own sinful nature to it.

It can simply be a matter of the false teaching bolstering ones pride or elitist superiority, or it can be a loophole to justify any kind of sin, and still feel spiritual and blessed by God.

What is your role in the Kingdom of Heaven?

……

“Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

So, a lot of people are going to be “the least” in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Then, the next verse qualifies whether they will be in or out.

“…On that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.” (Gen. 7:11b-12)

Some people question how forty days of rainfall can cover mountains?

a. It wasn’t just rain, it says subterranean water came up.

b. The pre-flood world was very different. There was no rain, but only dew, scripture says. So there obviously was a lot of water vapor held in the atmosphere, but it didn’t rain.

c. The earth was originally all ocean. Then God made dry land appear. Then, only part of the planet was land, and the rest ocean.

d. If the “fountains” under the earth were opened up, then that’s describing a global cataclysm. It “could” be that the modern scientific theory of an ancient super-continent, called Pangaea or Gondwana, is true, and before the flood there was one land mass, and, therefore, the flood was specifically concentrated on this land mass, and these cataclysmic events, as well as the changes in the earth’s crust by all the water coming out, were the catalyst which split this single land mass into the tectonic continental plates we know today. Geologists know that vast sections of the earth were once under water.

e. This would also explain how the animals came into the Ship, because it was a single land mass with no sea barriers, and perhaps not as big as we think.

Israel

May 15, 2021

“Now the LORD had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Gen 12:1-3)

At the very bare minimum, to “bless” someone means to seek their good. It doesn’t mean you approve of their faults or ignore them. It doesn’t mean you think they are perfect.

Jesus said to bless those who curse you and do not curse them. It doesn’t mean you are siding with your enemy because you bless your enemy.

So, as God hasn’t changed, if you bless natural Israel, you’ll be blessed. And God has promised to destroy every nation that comes against her.

So, to bless Israel doesn’t mean you support everything Israel does, and it certainly doesn’t mean you curse the Arabs.

It doesn’t mean you “take sides with Israel” or say you are on “their side”.

It means, when the world hates them because they are God’s chosen people, and denies their right to their God given homeland, you don’t side with their enemies.

Most of Israel is still living in darkness, but still God commands us to bless them.

Even in Old Testament times, when Israel backslid and came under God’s judgment, the Abrahamic blessing was still in effect – it has never been rescinded.

Biblically and historically, “nationhood” was defined as a specific ethnic group united by a shared language and religion. It was tribal by nature.

In this sense, you would say the Biblical nation of Israel has never ceased to be.

If, and only if, the present day enemies of Israel are able to defeat them, we wouldn’t rejoice, but we would accept God’s sovereign hand is at work.

No one rejoiced to see the Holocaust, except the totally morally reprobate, and yet God allowed it to happen.

Would you have “sided” with Israel or the Nazis?

You would have blessed Israel anyway, even if they were under God’s judgment.

At the bare minimum, you wouldn’t call the Holocaust a mere coincidence, a happenstance – something that just happened which has no spiritual meaning.

While most will agree that our relationship to God is covenantal and not contractual, the use of the word “if” attached to the promises of God all through scripture indicates a condition.

So, the Covenant can be refused, but it doesn’t make the Covenant into a contract, it acknowledges that man still has a choice in the matter of whether he will remain in the Covenant.

Hence the use of the word “if” in regard to the promises of God.

The natural mind is not able to understand the parallel truths that God is Sovereign and man still has a choice.

The natural mind will say, If God is Sovereign, then man doesn’t have a choice.

Or, If man has a choice, then God is not Sovereign.

Recently, I had a man try to explain to me, using theological jargon, that “if” doesn’t actually mean, “if”.

Of course, I have to give him the benefit of the doubt that he doesn’t know what he is saying, and that he’s not intentionally being a fraud.

Being content in Christ means we don’t use other things as a source of contentment.

And we might learn this the hard way.

……

Here’s a very weak analogy to explain the existence of the modern state of Israel.

Imagine the native Americans, who once owned America, had a national resurgence, became militarily powerful, and decided to take back their land from the European settlers? They could rightfully claim it’s their land by virtue of thousands of years of prior possession. But the “settlers”, which we will call “Americans”, even though there is no prior history of such a people as “Americans”, may say they have possession of the land, and even revise history to edit out the real history of the Natives. And, in the end, the Americans might say, If God is for us then He will keep us in possession of the land.

It’s a very weak analogy.

Regarding Israel, “might” will decide the final outcome.

To the Islamic mind, the Jews are occupying Islamic land, and if this is so, then, surely, Allah will eventually help them to evict them from the land Allah gave them.

The Bible indicates that in the end, though the whole world comes against them, God will defend them.

Not because they are superior people, but to keep His promise to them.

In the end, Allah won’t be able to help the whole world evict or annihilate the Jews.

“It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”

Zechariah 12:9-10

Here, God says “they will look on me whom they pierced”.

Pretty obvious who it is they pierced.

And, this Man is God, because God says they pierced Him.

So, if you don’t want God to destroy you, don’t come against the Jewish people.

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)

The subject is the coming of the Lawless one. “The lie”, referred to here, is then the lie that the Lawless one is not Lawless, but just the opposite, the Messiah, God incarnate.

Remember, the lying signs and wonders are to supposedly prove this man is from God, or is God.

He’s not just accepted because he is a good politician, very intelligent, or even a very nice person, he is accepted because of supernatural power associated with him.

It’s the perfect blend of religion and politics, and the marriage of both.

……

In our own experience we know what it is like to extend love to people who don’t want our love.

God has certainly extended His love to the whole human race through giving His Son to die for all.

So, our message should be, Christ died for you, rather than, God loves you, because it explains the nature of God’s love and avoids a misunderstanding of it whereby unrepentant people wrongly get the idea they are safe from the wrath of God.

…..

“God loves everyone, but He doesn’t accept everyone.”

…There is a condition to being accepted by God, according to Jesus Christ, in John chapter 3.

……

Understanding how God loves the world and yet will condemn forever those who don’t repent:

Jesus commands us to love our enemies and do good to them, because that is how the Father is: He sends the rain on the just and the unjust, and He is not willing any perish, but that all come to repentance.

So, God’s love for the world is understood in how we are to love our enemies: not a romantic kind of love, but a desire for them to be saved.

Jesus wouldn’t ask us to love our enemies if He didn’t.

“But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.”

(Luke 6:35-36)

……

God’s time always comes soon enough and on time, and it’s very encouraging to know there is little time left, for that’s why Jesus said, when you see these things happening, look up, for your redemption draws near: and that’s the greatest encouragement, to know He is coming soon.

Look up. That’s the right kind of focus.
