Narrow

August 18, 2018

The “narrow way” does not mean small-minded, and, yes, it does mean “narrow-minded” to the broad-minded.

If people think Jesus or his word is narrow-minded, who cares? As if he cares what they think.

Good questions

August 18, 2018

What do you think about Jesus Christ?

Good question, but an even better question is, What does he think about you?

Predictable

August 16, 2018

If you debate a Liberal Progressive pastor or teacher on the issue of homosexuality, you can almost guarantee they will manipulate the discussion to make it look like YOU are evil, and homosexuality is pure and holy.

Wholly

August 16, 2018

Is it fair to say that the indwelling Holy Spirit wants to sanctify every aspect of our life, but we’re not always fully convinced, and think that as long as certain aspects of our life are sanctified it’s OK?

A delusion given by God

August 16, 2018

(2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)

[11] And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

[12] That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 

Pleasure in unrighteousness” was the reason God gave them a strong delusion to not believe the truth.

It wasn’t like a  technical error of crossing their Ts or dotting their I s the wrong way.  It wasn’t like failing your Calculus exam.  It was some sleazy thing they refused to hate.

See how everyone believes something, it’s just that many believe a lie over the truth.

 

What we NEED to know

August 16, 2018

Christian, everything you NEED to know is in your Bible.

As for the other stuff…

In us

August 15, 2018

The spiritual vision to see the Lord on his throne in heaven only happens when he lives in us.

Pointing

August 15, 2018

Re-post:

 

Even the greatest men and women can’t really give you anything, they can only point you to Jesus.

Jesus Christ is the truth

August 15, 2018

Jesus Christ is the truth, and the world is a lie.

Not too excited about it

August 15, 2018

Anything you can’t take with you when you die is not worth getting too excited about, because you’re going to live forever without it.

 

An exciting thing for the believer to contemplate is  that the people we love will be with us forever.

The moment freedom is gone

August 15, 2018

While you live, you can go where you want, do what you want, but the moment your heart stops beating all those freedoms are gone, you will go where God takes you, and you will not be able to stop him.

Your future?

August 15, 2018

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him…” (2 Thessalonians 2:1)

This is the future for all who love him, they will be “gathered together into him”. Glorious!

He will do the gathering. He wants all his people from every nation to be with him.

Fatal attraction

August 13, 2018

If something disgusts you, in a moral dimension, it’s not likely to attract you anytime soon.

Right now

August 13, 2018

Anyone in the world can become a Christian, even right at this moment, right where they are. That is the message, the good news of Jesus Christ.

The thief, who was hanging on a cross next to Jesus, understood and apprehended this, just in time.

Conscience

August 13, 2018

True Christians never allow someone else to be their conscience, or take the place of their conscience.

The effect of peace with God

August 13, 2018

A true Christian has peace with God, and, therefore, has peace toward everyone else, even to those who are hostile toward them.

Helper

August 12, 2018

The Holy Spirit is the “helper” (Gk. Paraclete).

He won’t do it for us, and, we can’t do it without him.

Clash of kingdoms

August 12, 2018

Spiritual breakthrough by the Holy Spirit, and the breaking of the enemies works and plans, are inseparable, they go together, because it is always the greater Kingdom destroying and replacing the lesser kingdom – a clash of kingdoms, light dispelling the darkness.

Working with God

August 12, 2018

God chooses to work by prayer. He doesn’t have to, he chose to.

Now, if we choose not to work by prayer, we are, then, not working with him.

There is enough grace

August 12, 2018

(2 Corinthians 12:9) “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

“…My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness…”

The same grace, which was sufficient for Paul, is sufficient for us.

We, who have been born again, have sufficient grace, already, and a never-ending, inexhaustible supply of that grace.

Sufficient grace means enough grace.

 

You may be tired and weary,  but you have enough grace to  bring you through.

You may be attacked by the enemy, and his stooges,  but you have enough grace to see you through.

 

You may have failed the Lord, and are sorry you did,  but know there is enough grace to restore you.

 

You may wonder how your future and your loved ones futures will pan out,  so know there is sufficient grace for the future.
