Election prophecy fiasco

January 8, 2021

“All things work together for good for those who love the Lord.”

How can false prophecies that Trump would win “work together for good”? Is there any “silver lining”?

Yes. By causing people to trust less in men and more on Jesus Christ.

It can have a purifying effect.

It can be a great searchlight used by God to reveal false prophets and teachers.

A list should be made of all who prophesied that Trump would win.

It’s not to hate these people, but it’s for the sake of coming to terms with reality.

Those of them who are truly sorry and publically repent should be accepted into fellowship. They should desist from making further predictions.

It’s better to be disturbed by the truth than pacified by a lie.

Did anyone prophesy that Biden would win?

No one wanted Biden to win so no one considered that God might allow something which they don’t want.

It reveals a foundational spiritual weakness, when people put their faith in wishful thinking. They’ve created an idol. Idols are created to give you what you want. That’s their purpose and function.

God is doing a mighty work, bursting many such bubbles.

We have to ask why so many want to make predictions? It’s to promote themselves.

And why do so many love to hear predictions?

Christian, you know that the only thing which kept you from dropping into hell was the sheer mercy of God?

……

When Jesus spoke the truth to the Pharisees their immediate reaction was hate, and to plot to kill Him.

Jesus knew what their reaction would be, but He didn’t hesitate to speak the truth to them anyway.

Jesus was not political.

He didn’t weigh up first whether people would like His message, and neither did He tailor it to suit the hearers.

And yet He warned us not to cast our pearls before swine, lest they turn and attack us.

……

Christians are concerned but not worried.

……

Because God exists and created us everything has a moral dimension to it. If someone steals your car or punches you in the face you just might have a moral objection. It is a moral issue only because God exists and you were created by Him. And in the same way, God has a moral objection to us disregarding His commands. Therefore it would be a mistake to relegate moral issues as merely religious issues.

There are terrible days ahead. Abide in Christ. And, if you do, you are not a pawn, a victim of circumstance or a feather on the wind, but more than a conqueror through Him.

……

In a new video the Pope makes another call for human fraternity amongst all faiths, and again he presents a false dichotomy which denies the teaching of the New Testament.

The Pope is implying that to love people one must affirm their beliefs and not proclaim to them Jesus Christ as the only Savior. Disagreement is labeled as “fighting”.

This is in no way a Biblical position, but a very deceptive one. He is redefining love on his own terms. By his definition, to simply read out what Jesus Christ said would be unloving and against human fraternity.

How does he figure that to simply repeat what Jesus said amounts to fighting people?

He is judging Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ claimed to be the only way to God.

Christians are only repeating what Jesus said.

So, if you don’t like that message, don’t hate the messengers, hate the one who said it.

What’s the greatest thing that can happen on planet earth?

When a person can smile and lie, or be happy committing evil, then they have the evidence within them selves that their conscience is dead.

“In His presence is fullness of joy.”

Ah… that’s why we lack joy.

……

Our skin is a good covering for our skeleton. Very useful.

……

Jesus said the truth shall set you free.

So, if you’re not free it’s because you’ve not accepted the truth.

No one can force you to love Jesus.

And yet, the world will try and force you not to love Him.

…..

“…But sanctify the lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear…”

(1 Peter 3:15)

‘Sanctify’ means to separate something exclusively unto God.

Each day we seek His face we sanctify Him anew in our hearts, and we’re sanctified and separated from all else and are in His service.

…..

Sin destroys everything it infects.

It’s mankind’s only real problem.

…..

An early sign we’re losing our love for God is when we no longer care about people’s souls.

Faith in Jesus Christ was always meant to be personal, not an impersonal formula or form.

……

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition…”

(2 Thess. 2:3)

Unsaved or lost people can’t “fall away”. They were always away from God. It refers to a “departure” from the truth. You can’t depart from the truth if you never had the truth.

So, it’s professing Christians departing from the truth which allows the Antichrist to come to power.

It implies that it’s fake Christians who play a large part in helping the Antichrist come to power.

……

I followed some Prosperity Preachers on Twitter to see what they’re up to these days.

Nothing has changed.

When they open the Bible all they see is $$$$$$$.

They don’t see Jesus.

……

It’s an ‘interesting’ concept that there’s virtue in being ignorant of the state of the world.

……

Because God knows everything about every person He knows who loves Him.

……

Because Jesus knew who He was He was never intimidated by men or devils.

…….

What does “God is holy” mean?

It essentially denotes He is an exclusive being – one of a kind, unique, “other”, in a class of His own, distinct from that which He has made. God is a being, and every other being was made by Him. So, whatever “gods” exist, they are not God, for God is holy. Likewise, nature is not holy, for it is simply something God has made – it’s not Him. He is not His creation. He is one thing, and His creation, another.

Then, what does it mean for us to “be holy”?

As only God is holy, then, holiness is understood in relation to this one Holy God – holiness describes a relationship to this true God, and, just as God is exclusive, a holy relationship is exclusive. If God is my God, and I have no other god, that is, I exclusively serve Him and no other, I don’t serve two masters, then that’s a holy relationship, and that’s what it means to “be holy as He is holy”.

Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a picture of this holy relationship to God because it denotes an exclusive relationship between two, excluding all others. Two shall be one flesh. If one more joins the relationship then it’s no longer holy, it is defiled.

So, if our affections or loyalty is divided between God and anything else, we are not holy.

The Bible explicitly tells us that Jesus is the eternal Son of God, was with God and is God, so, there is a relationship within God between the Father and the Son.

Jesus prayed to His Father, and His Father spoke to Him.

This is an eternal relationship.

It means that “God is holy” also refers to a holy relationship within God.

This also explains how God is love.

Because the Father loves the Son, and the Son, the Father.

So, when God brings us into Christ at our conversion, we are then holy by virtue of being in the Holy one.

…..

It’s day 3 and the “prophets” seem more subdued than last year. This time last year they were prophesying a whole bunch of stuff which turned out phony.

Now they will play it safer and the emphasis will be on ambiguous prophecies which can mean anything you want them to mean.

It’s a sign of God’s impending judgment on Babylon.

……

The object of our faith is the Father, through His Son.

Nothing less.

Because we are His children.

……

For me, I can say the value of my life revolves around people, not possessions.

…..

It’s a new year and we’re looking ahead and praying God’s will be done, and also accepting the fact that great evils will continue and increase in the world, but only to the extent that God permits. Praying God’s will be done doesn’t mean expecting the world to get better, because He has already decreed what will happen, and His words will be fulfilled.

But this fact doesn’t justify complacency or resignation.

When we think of God’s will, think of God’s work and purpose in gathering and purifying a people for Himself in His Son.

If we are committed to doing and participating in what God is doing then we pray His will be done accordingly.

……

The Holy Spirit is moving all over the world, in every continent, every city, every town, night and day, tirelessly.

……

Believing in Jesus is not as unusual as some make it out to be when you consider that 30% of the world’s population identify as Christians.

……

The noted revivalist, Jonathan Edwards, once quipped that he had made a decision in life to only do that which gives glory to God. It’s an absolutely Biblical injunction, however, Christians have never been too agreed as to what glorifies God and what doesn’t, on some issues.

Nevertheless, it’s a wonderful exhortation, and a very noble exercise, to examine whether every aspect of our lives glorifies God, whether directly or indirectly.

For example, does brushing your teeth glorify God? It sure can if you’re thankful to Him you’ve got teeth, and thankful He gave you the wisdom to take care of them.

Does friendly humor glorify God? It sure can when it’s an expression of love and building good will. He gets the glory for that.

Etc….

……

Aren’t you glad that after reading the New Testament you’ll no longer be mystified over whether something is right or wrong in the sight of God?

……

Talkng last night:

Good deeds don’t save, but you wouldn’t then say, ‘Because good deeds don’t save, it doesn’t matter whether you do good or evil’, would you?

In the same way, getting baptized doesn’t save, but you wouldn’t then say, ‘Because baptism doesn’t save, it doesn’t matter whether you get baptized or not’, would you?

Anything Jesus said to do, or not to do, matters.

It depends on what we think about Him, whether we love, honor and worship Him.

…….

Jesus never called anyone to walk alone, but to walk with Him.

……

God is where it’s at.

……

Just a little context, it’s not Trump who believes the election was rigged, it’s half the country who believes it, according to polls. But the mainstream media makes it out to be Trump’s fantasy.

It’s not that it’s hard to believe Jesus rose from the dead, it’s coming to terms with the ramifications of this fact which scares people. They would rather have Jesus still in the grave.

…….

Do people avoid the Bible cause they’re scared of what they might learn there?

……

Our hope is not in this world, but, for now, we are living here so we are interested in what is happening in the world.

It is a fake spirituality to be willfully ignorant of what is happening.

There’s a lot of false equivalence goes on with Christians.

If you make a political comment such people will assume:

a. Your hope is in the world.

b. You look to men and not to Jesus.

c. You spend all your time thinking about politics.

d. You must be worldly.

Approximately 30% of the world’s population are supposed to be Christians.

This is the question all must answer.

No one in heaven has racial issues.

No one in heaven hates or ridicules.

No one in heaven loves money.

No one in heaven wants to have power over others.

No one in heaven wants to glorify themselves.

Etc.

This is something of what Jesus Christ represents.

……

The Creator of all is the Ruler of all.

What kind of Creator couldn’t rule over what He created?

And who would say their Creator has no right to rule them?

……

Look at these two verses:

“And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” (Luke 21:24)

“For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.” (Revelation 17:17)

“Fulfillment”, here, signifies God spoke, and what He spoke WILL be fulfilled.

You can debate all you like over how this pans out, but if God said something will happen, it will happen.

This means that the final events of this age, which are unfolding now, will happen, and no one can stop it.

It can’t be prayed away.

For true followers of Jesus, they get a lot of comfort knowing that the world is heading where God said it would.

Comforting to know this same God as His child.

……

There are indeed wacko conspiracy theories out there, and yet there’s also evidence of widespread manipulation of the masses.

If you’re a student of history you would know that whole populations have been duped, time and time again.

And nothing has changed.

Most people born after 1990 are not independent thinkers.

Even though left wing indoctrination began in schools in the 60s, it virtually took over by the 90s.

Consider. Pre-war Germany was supposed to be an enlightened, educated, modern society. Not a bunch of savages.

……

Of course, it doesn’t matter in this world who’s popular and who isn’t, and yet it’s instructive to know that, according to the latest Gallup Poll, Trump is far more popular than Biden, and even the “messiah” Obama.

……

“And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” (Matthew 6:13)

How many Christians are not delivered from the evil one because they don’t ask to be delivered?

If we ask, it will be done.

If we don’t ask, we won’t receive.

Otherwise, what would be the point of Jesus teaching us to ask we be delivered if that were not neccessary?

……

Have you ever wondered why virtually any zany religious belief is quite acceptable, but the belief that Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again, and is the only Savior is not permissible?

There’s a reason.

……

Saul – I’m the least in my family, and my family is the least in my tribe, and my tribe is the least of the tribes of Israel.

Samuel – None of that matters now since the Lord is with you.

……

The better we know our Savior, then, it follows, the better we’ll know our enemy.

And unless we know our enemy we will be defeated by him. You can’t overcome an enemy you don’t know.

“…And not holding firmly to the Head, from whom all the body, being supplied and knit together through the joints and ligaments, grows with God’s growth.” (Colossians 2:19)

In this chapter Paul lists a number of religious and spiritual diversions or traps which Christians were falling into.

Our Head is Jesus.

Any spiritual belief or practice which causes us not to “hold firm to the Head” leads us toward disconnection from the Head and therefore cuts off His supply to His body and we don’t grow.

Holding firmly to Jesus Christ means He supplies our life, our everything.

And the text tells us that His supply flows from Him through “joints and ligaments” which denotes the inter-connective members of His body.

Each member of the Body is supposed to hold firm to the Head.

Then He supplies directly and through His members.

But even when He supplies through someone else, it’s still Him supplying, and not them.

……

For we who believe, Jesus promised to lead us. He leads and we follow. We are not to lead. If we are wise we will look for Him to lead the way and we follow.

It takes a big burden off us if we are following and not leading.

The advent of the internet meant for the first time in history the ordinary person could see what life is like for their fellow man anywhere in the world, if they choose to.

Some guys go to an institutional church because they like the anonymity and the stage performance, then complain later that no one cares or even knows if they’re sick or lonely.

They want their cake, and to eat it too.

They want to be alone, except for when they need people.

If you reject relational church then you’ll just have to live with the fact no one cares about you. That’s the life you’ve chosen.

……

If you believe the Bible then you’re the ultimate realist. You know the world isn’t going to get better, and you know the final outcome in advance, and have total peace.

……

If the world wanted to elect a “President of Planet Earth” would they elect Jesus of Nazareth?

Would He be deemed suitable to lead the world?

Not likely.

After three years of preaching they crucified Him.

……

In today’s world it’s not exceptional for a person to preach democracy while rigging an election.

Why?

Because this is a moral dilemma, and such people’s morality differs from Biblical morality, to which they would readily agree.

The modern Liberal doesn’t have a fixed, absolute morality, it is ever shifting, circumstantial, situational, relativistic and always bending and conforming to the whims or demands of people.

You can’t expect an immoral person to tell the truth.

That would be unrealistic.

……

“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to his will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”

Pretty wonderful.

So, prayer is bringing God’s will to pass.

Because He only answers prayers that are according to His will.

The will of God is the work of God, His purpose.

His purpose is to bring people to know Him through His Son.

If we know His purpose we can pray according to His will.

Our greatest enemy is that which keeps us from prayer.

“Then (John the Baptist) said to the multitudes that came out to be baptized by him, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” (Luke 3:7)

He wasn’t joking.

There is a wrath to come.

And you should flee from it while you can.

The wrath comes from the same source as the grace.

From Jesus Christ.

Flee to Him today.

And you won’t have to suffer His wrath to come.

If Jesus had not risen from the dead I wouldn’t believe in Him. But He did.

……

Its self evident that when cultural Christians participate in Christian cultural traditions they are doing so to some extent because they culturally identify as Christians.

So, we have multitudes of unrepentant people identifying as cultural Christians.

Why?

What is the purpose of identifying oneself as a Christian but having no intention of repenting?

Christian Traditions exist so that people who are unrepentant can still feel religious.

It wouldn’t be unreasonable to say that Christian culture exists for the sake of cultural Christians, and not for those who have been truly converted.

Of course, we would rather have a Christian culture than an Islamic or Hindu one, or an Atheistic one, all the same.

Ask any nominal, cultural Christian why they celebrate Christmas, and why they don’t feel convicted of being hypocritical in doing so?

In the first century, if you were playing the hypocrite you could get sick and die for taking the Lords Supper.

But by the third century everyone was taking it and not dying.

One thing about the world is that it has the power to present things as real which are not real.

Know that a year flies by. If we are productive daily, by the end of the year we see an accumulation of tangible results.

Make tiny progress today, then multiply that by 365 to see the total progress by year’s end.

What we set our mind and will on today will be clearly seen by the end of the year, by God’s grace.

So, in other words, keep faithful daily and wait until the end of the year to see what God will do.

Wait until the end of the year to measure your progress. Don’t need to check every day.

And, if not by ourselves, then, how?

The Beast took the Woman where she wanted to go, helped her get the power and dominance she craved, and then betrays her.

Yet this doesn’t change the fact that Liberal ideology and morality is a fast track to God’s judgment on a society.

Maybe you forgot about Sodom and Gomorrah?

Sexual morality can’t be legislated, with the exception of Pedophilia, and yet things like Educational policy will have a big impact on the type of society which emerges.

Public indecency should be legislated.

It should be illegal for people to walk around naked, and especially in front of children.

But the genie is out of the bottle now.

I think Liberal means the approval of immorality more than immorality itself.

A Liberal defends immorality.

A Liberal may lead quite an outwardly moral life, but they have no moral or intellectual objection to the most disgusting sins.

So I say to them, As you have no moral objection to those things then there would be nothing preventing you doing them if you wanted to.

……

For our life to have meaning we must first know the meaning of life.

……

Are you getting the right kind of teaching? someone asks.

Whatever the New Testament scriptures teach is for us, and anything else is not for us.

So, if someone is immersed in these teachings then they’re getting the right kind of teaching.

……

Stoop down, condescend, and lower your pride, but in doing so never lower your standards.

……

Out of my worldwide Facebook contacts there’s many people who claim to be Christian leaders or spiritual authorities, and perhaps well over 50% of them continuously glorify themselves.

That means over half of them are deluded.

……

“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, HAS in these last days SPOKEN TO US by His Son (Jesus Christ) whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…” (Hebrews 1:1-3)

God has spoken to us.

God spoke by His Son.

His Son is the only true representative of God, being, Himself, God.

It means, all there is to know about God is known in and by Jesus Christ.

If you could ask God, What is the true religion? His answer is here: He has spoken by His Son.

It would be foolish to ask Jesus what is the true religion.

He said, Follow me.

……

A barcode on your forehead?

Look in the last book of the Bible, chapter 13.

……

The conscience is the raw material God begins His work with.

If your conscience is totally gone then there’s no raw material for Him to work with.

……

We pray for people that they will be taught by God.

……

The world doesn’t so much hate the image of Jesus Christ, it’s quite cozy with it, as seen in the universal celebration of Christmas, but it hates what He represents, it hates His morals and values, His holiness, His commands, and it hates the fact that He decides right and wrong, that He alone is the truth and we are not.

In other words, the world loves a mythological representation of Jesus Christ, but hates the Jesus of the Bible.

……

The only Person you need to meet is Jesus.

There’s no one else you need to meet.

……

For a Christian to speak out against injustice in their nation doesn’t necessarily make them a Christian Nationalist who has put their faith in the nation.

It might simply mean they have some character.

……

I’ve never seen a Christian who has the fear of man amount to anything.

……

Imagine a creature which lives in total darkness, and when a light shines on it, it recoils in pain.

Welcome to the modern world.

Someone says the word “rapture” is not in the Bible.

It is in the Latin Bible, “rapturo”, and in the Greek it is “harpazo”, which means a catching away.

So there is a catching away.

The only question is, when?

The dead in Christ must rise first, Paul tells us.

After the great persecution that’s coming, and before Gods wrath is poured out on the earth.

……

Scrolling down my Twitter feed I noticed that the topic of Antisemitism is a perennially recurring one, it never goes away, it’s been recurring for 4000 years, and it has a grim but central place in human history.

Have you ever wondered, Why them?

It’s because God made a covenant with Abraham and his descendants.

And that the devil is a real spiritual force, and not a myth.

……

Westerners are the new barbarians, the new uncivilized heathen natives who need missionaries. Everything has reversed and turned on its head.

The difference now is the “natives” have much more expensive clothes and toys.

Without understanding the wrath of God you’ll have a faulty understanding of the love of God.

Jesus said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority…” (Acts 1:7)

The times and seasons are under the Father’s authority.

Imagine all the people who ever lived are standing together on a vast plain, and you are standing there right in the middle of this crowd.

Christians and politics

December 20, 2020

On Christians and politics:

If it’s not spiritual to talk about politics then it’s also not spiritual to talk about food recipes, your house, your garden, cars, your work, world events or post pictures of yourself.

You would think.

I think the issue is, Is it permissible for Christians to discuss the realities of life?

And it would be ridiculous to say, No, it’s not permissible to discuss the realities of life – you can discuss gardening, cooking, or whatever, but please do not discuss the future of your nation because that is not spiritual.

It’s one reason why many people avoid Christians, because they think they’re idiots for making such rules.

The sad thing about Christian fringe groups is their main purpose seems to be to insulate Christians from the realities of life.

Do political issues divide?

There’s always two kinds of division, both good and bad division.

Bad division is over petty matters.

Good division is the separation of light from darkness.

“Oh no, your political views didn’t separate us, it’s that they revealed what kind of person you really are.”

Mankind’s only problem is not heeding God’s word.

That’s the real problem with anyone.

…..

I’ve observed that most religions and cultures have one big annual festival where families reconnect and come together and there’s a sense of community good will.

And this is a good thing.

……

Just saw a reference to a “motivational speaker”.

Jesus Christ is all the motivation we need.

He is the source of righteous motivation.

Knowing Him, we don’t need motivational speakers.

We already have our motivation.

And it’s a purified motivation.

There are no appeals heard in God’s court. Judgment is final, irreversible, and forever.

Now is the time to obtain mercy in Jesus Christ.

Your eternal future is a big deal, right?

The future belongs to Jesus Christ, according to the Bible.

Will your future be with Him?

……

Jesus taught that who ever follows Him will lose a lot, but gain much more than they lose.

For His children, when He takes away He always replaces with something better.

Jesus said He will prune away unproductive areas of our life and replace it with “much fruit”.

We need to be willing for Him to do this.

……

In today’s world, truth can mean anything you want it to mean.

……

Let’s summarize the endtime delusion as thus: it’s the belief that God will accept you without repentance from sin, and even further, that sin is not sin. This is the message the world longs to hear, that you can continue to be immoral and be spiritual at the same time. You could even claim to know God and be his servant yet not hindered by any feelings of guilt over your immorality because you’ve redefined your immorality as something good. This is the direction the world is heading in toward a universal common faith.

……

Temptation is a normal part of the Christian experience.

When Jesus was tempted He could see who the tempter was.

Similarly, it’s a great blessing if we can see who the tempter is so that we can see that it’s a matter of rejecting him.

By the grace of God we can see in our time of testing that an evil power is tempting us with the aim of bringing us under its power.

In this way we don’t come under condemnation simply by being tempted.

When the tempter injects wrong thoughts they are his thoughts, not yours, so why should you feel condemned for thoughts which do not originate from you?

……

“…Consider yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom. 6:11)

Consider that you are dead to sin because you’re alive to God.

It’s a morbid analogy, but if you prop up a dead body on the sofa to watch TV he’s not going to be too interested in the program. You wouldn’t expect him to be.

You wouldn’t expect a person who is dead to sin to be interested in sin.

If they are alive to God then their interest in God negates and cancels out their interest in that which is contrary to God.
