Ideological War

March 21, 2022

“Sociologists define ideology as “cultural beliefs that justify particular social arrangements, including patterns of inequality.”[54] Dominant groups use these sets of cultural beliefs and practices to justify the systems of inequality that maintain their group’s social power over non-dominant groups. Ideologies use a society’s symbol system to organize social relations in a hierarchy, with some social identities being superior to other social identities, which are considered inferior. The dominant ideology in a society is passed along through the society’s major social institutions, such as the media, the family, education, and religion.[55] As societies changed throughout history, so did the ideologies that justified systems of inequality.[54]” – Wikipedia

We are seeing an ideological battle between Woke liberals and Conservatives.

Woke is aggressively trying to become the dominant ideology through government control and political propaganda in the media.

Ideology becomes indistinct from politics, they merge into one.

For example, the current controversy over gender is an ideological issue.

But some people object to having an ideology forced upon them.

On turning 60

March 17, 2022

Thoughts on reaching 60.

My life began when I was 24.

My life before that, that was someone else, a lost soul.

I was living, but dead while I lived.

Jesus revealed Himself to me when I was 24. He made me a new person.

I first came to India when I was 27.

Got married to Sheela when I was 35.

Turned grey by 40 because of driving in India. I kid you not. Those days it was the wild west.

We raised 7 wonderful kids, and a few others whom we are still in touch with.

Often our house would be full with visitors staying over and people passing through.

Sometimes we didn’t know where our next meal would be coming from.

But our Father brought us through.

When we’re young, 60 seems way too old.

When we’re 70, 60 seems quite youthful.

For me, I stopped thinking about my age when I was 24.

From then I’ve lived in eternity, knowing I will live forever with my Father and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Since 24 I’ve had perfect peace every day, even in suffering.

God made the peace by slaying His Son, as a bloody human sacrifice for my sins, thus removing the barrier between Him and me, forever.

I look forward to the future with a glorious hope.

Jesus said, as you see these things happening, that is, the destruction of the world, Look up! For your redemption draws near.

That’s the real life.

Not “The Matrix” which people in the world merely exist in from day to day.

True prayer is to come before God.

It’s such an incredible thing.

Prayer was God’s idea. It is His way of working.

Make prayer the most important part of your life.

……

If hearing the good news of Jesus makes you angry, that’s proof you have a sin nature, and proof you need Him to save you.

…..

In the LORD’s Supper, eating a meal becomes an act of worship.

……

“The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.” (Rev. 17:8)

“And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.” (Rev. 13:3)

“…Was, and is not, and yet is”, means a man is killed, and seen to be dead, and then comes back to life. And the world will stand amazed and attach divine significance to it, for only God can raise the dead.

Note that for the whole world to witness this event it requires global electronic communication. In previous times it could not have been fulfilled.

And this person will be a public figure, known to the whole world. It could be an attempted assassination of a world leader.

Watch out for this, because it will happen sooner or later.

……

The last world leader will be the Antichrist, who will rule over a coalition of ten nations.

He will be the full embodiment of fallen humanity.

Hence his number, 666, which means the “ultimate man”, or the embodiment of fallen man, full of self righteousness, pride and arrogance.

Six is the number of man, and 666 means a kind of superman.

The world will love him because he mixes spirituality with immorality.

This is the religion the world wants. One where you can sleep with whoever or whatever you want, or just fantasize about it, and still be spiritual.

“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 Thess. 2:11-12)

……

When a Christian acts as if the truth is not important, then it follows that they also don’t care whether they believe things which aren’t true.

…..

If we don’t care about someone’s soul, we don’t love them.

……

The word of God is the reference point for life. It’s how we understand our life.

…..

Many leaders, whether political or religious, couldn’t sit down to an open Q & A session because they know they might incriminate themselves by their answers or non-answers/evasion.

…..

“But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.”

(Hebrews 10:12)

Jesus became the sacrifice.

He was willing to be sacrificed to pay for our sins.

He’s done that.

Will you believe it?

…..

“The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it that its works are evil.” (John 7:7)

If Jesus says something is evil, then it’s evil.

……

Serving God has vastly greater reward than serving oneself.

…..

According to Jesus’ teaching, hate can never be justified.

When we encounter evil we see a reflection of our own evil.

Sinners have no justification to hate fellow sinners.

But the redeemed must hate the sins Christ died for and redeemed them from.

……

“And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him (Gideon) and said to him, “The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor!” (Judges 6:12)

Are we mighty men of valor?

Or something less?

…..

That people believe things; the belief, itself, doesn’t make it true. If something is true, it is true because it is true, not because you believe it to be true.

…..

Every person who’s ever existed (except Jesus) has had a problem with God’s authority over them.

……

Any soul not anchored to the absolute truth of Gods word is like a ship adrift on the storm, and it’s only a matter of time before they are smashed on the rocks. They have no anchor for their soul. They can be swept away.

“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil…” (Heb. 6:19)

……

Is this world giving you everything you want it to give you?

Or do you feel there’s something more – something this world can’t give you?

…..

To be saved and to follow Jesus will not mean following the religion, but it will mean obeying His word.

…..

Losing your soul is far more dangerous than losing your life.

The spiritual war is far more deadly than the war with guns.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” (1 Peter 5:8-9)

…..

The greatest worker is God. He is the greatest worker in every way. His work is perfect. He feeds the whole world. He works in the lives of billions of people. He never takes a day off.

……

Small gatherings without a “pastor” or an organization: How do they work? Because each person has an understanding of the purpose of gathering together in Jesus name, to build one another up in the faith, and, is committed to that in their life. They are no longer just the “audience”, nor are they followers of any leader.

But pastors are mentioned in the Bible!

Yes, but never as one man leading a church.

Always as a group of equal men shepherding and caring for a group of believers.

And never leading the service.

See 1 Corinthians 14.

……

Why would a Christian have beliefs or spiritual practices which aren’t even mentioned in the Bible?

The answer has to be that they’ve put their faith in man, or at the least, trust partly in God, and partly in man.

…..

Amongst house church people we must never tolerate a spirit which looks down on traditional church people or considers one type of Christian superior to another.

Of course, if you clearly teach what the New Testament teaches then some will falsely accuse you of thinking you’re superior. We have to live with that.

False accusers rarely have the courage to meet you in real life, face to face.

….

Where people have been victims of racism in the past, it doesn’t help their case to keep on making skin color an issue – it perpetuates racism.

…..

Only when you stop seeking happiness will you be truly happy in Christ.

…..

We truly help people if we help them become dependent on Jesus Christ, and not dependent on us.

…..

Generally, false spirituality among Christians is where they use the Bible, or man’s teachings, or church services as an escape from reality.

…..

The Lord’s Prayer is a condensed list of the most important things in life we need to attend to.

…..

Becoming a superficial Christian is a real danger.

Looking at Christendom today, one would think so.

…..

Why are mystical or esoteric teachings more appealing than the plain and simple teachings of Jesus Christ?

Because they appeal to human pride.

……

You overcome any personal enemies by loving them.

“Overcome evil with good”, the Bible says.

Do good to your enemies, Jesus said.

……

Jesus encourages us by strengthening our faith in Him.

…..

Any concept of the love of God which causes you to dispense with the wrath of God is a false concept.

Heard this quote yesterday and thought, the Gospel is not meant to be reactive, it’s proactive, it’s ahead of the ball, it’s the true reality.

Proactive: “Creating or controlling a situation rather than just responding to it after it has happened.”

Does the body of Christ around the world set the narrative, so that the world reacts, or, do we simply react to the world?

“…Satan, who deceives the whole world…” (Rev. 12:9b)

“For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem…” (Zech. 14:2a)

All conflicts will terminate upon Jerusalem. It will be the final conflict.

This is because the power behind the political rulers of the world is actually satan, yet under the Sovereign rule of the King of Kings, Jesus Christ.

God says He will cause all the nations to fight against Jerusalem.

But they don’t realize that it is God causing them to battle against Jerusalem.

God is using their hatred for the Jews to draw them into judgment.

So, this is how we understand the present world scene, like a giant chessboard, and ultimately all the pieces fall against the Jews.

Jesus “…said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.” (Matt. 16:15-17)

“These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Cor. 2:13-14)

So, the spiritual man receives the things of the Spirit of God. Everything he knows about God, he has received from the Holy Spirit. So there’s nothing he can boast about. He didn’t figure anything out by himself, it was revealed to him by God.

Now, this truth we’re looking at here, how would we have known it unless it had been written and preserved in scripture?

The true Christian faith is anchored in the historical fact that Jesus Christ rose from the dead, and, as this is a proven fact, this separates it from mythology or superstitions.

God just doesn’t record sins only, He records everything, the Bible teaches. Aren’t you glad the most beautiful, highest, most noble acts of love, heroism and sacrifice witnessed over the history of humanity are all recorded and will not be forgotten in eternity?

Conversely, what a bleak existence it would be if all those lives were forgotten forever?

All the people who ever lived are still “alive”, they still exist somewhere. Each one is known to God, and He has a complete record of their life. And soon they and we will stand together before God’s Judgment Throne to be judged. This is what the Bible teaches.

…..

Next to Jesus, the greatest gift one can have is a godly spouse.

…..

It’s a great tragedy that anyone goes to Hell, but an even greater tragedy that they rejected Jesus Christ.

…..

When we consider what transpired on that little, rocky hill outside Jerusalem, called Golgotha, we see, simultaneously, the most immense love ever witnessed, and the most immense evil or hate ever witnessed. The immense love of God collided with all the evil and hate which mankind could dish out, and Jesus won, defeating the evil, and making it possible for sinful men to be born again as new creations, as true sons of God.

Yet the atonement was transacted within God.

It wasn’t a battle of good over evil, it was something God transacted within Himself, having His own Son bear the punishment for the sin of the world and satisfying and fulfilling God’s law.

There is a false teaching called “Christus Victor” which denies the substitionary penal atonement.

By His death, the Son destroyed the authority of the devil:

“Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil”. (Hebrews 2:14)

It’s not as though Jesus had to fight the devil to conquer him. Not like a boxing match. Jesus conquered the devil by not doing what he said, and by satisfying the law, Jesus takes away the power of the devil to condemn or control the one under grace.

The Bible says in Rev. 13 the Antichrist will briefly rule the world. Before Jesus returns to rule the world, satan will install his own king as a counterfeit to the King of Kings, and people will believe it because of the great supernatural signs and wonders he does.

Much of Christendom is being groomed and conditioned to receive the Antichrist as Christ.

Any kind of teaching which says Christians/Christianity is going to gradually take over and rule the world is part of the spirit of Antichrist, preparing people to receive “the Christ”.

“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it.

For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

See, I have told you beforehand.

“Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it.

For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”

(Matthew 24:23-27)

Those “Christians” led by their natural mind and not the Spirit will see the Kingdom of God in natural or political terms. To them, the coming of the Kingdom means a rearranging of the present order into a peaceful New World Order.

For example, this is exactly how the Pope sees things, believing that all people are children of God and that the Kingdom is here now with the goal of world peace.

The “social gospel” is an integral part of the spirit of Antichrist’s strategy to deceive Christians into the counterfeit Kingdom which is coming.

Salvation is then understood as feeding the poor.

As if when a poor man receives a gift of food he receives salvation.

It’s a good thing to do but it’s not salvation.

Jesus died on the Cross to pay the price for our sins.

If salvation comes by food, then all He would have needed to do was give food to everyone.

As well, the Kingdom is not about being liked by the enemies of Christ, or being popular or influential. That is a false peace.

Yes, God can give you favor with even your enemies, scripture says.

But that’s not the Kingdom.

Gods Kingdom is not some kind of peace treaty with the devil’s kingdom.

…..

Have you heard of any other saviors other than Jesus?

Of course, it would be a joke if someone walked up to you and claimed to be your savior who can remove all your sins and reconcile you to God.

There’s no one in history who could claim that.

Except Jesus.

As for me, if someone dodges my questions I take it that they’re not a genuine friend, so I leave it at that.

This is where it is all leading to. You won’t be able to buy anything unless you are approved by the government and compliant with its ideology. By agreeing to vax passes and QR codes you are helping this system fall into place. Dictators need your help to set this up.

If there’s nothing that can prevent this happening then why post?

Because people have a choice whom they will serve.

The world is moving toward a global “theocracy”, but a theocracy without God. Because man is a moral creature, but he doesn’t want God, so creates his own moral system, and this ends up as a pseudo religion. The whole social discourse today is a moral one.

It’s a great tragedy when people don’t realize how thankful to God they need to be.

Christian, if the Lord returned today, would you be ready?

Matthew 25 teaches us that half of Christendom won’t be ready and will be left behind.

“Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’

But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’

“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.” (Matthew 25:11-13)

If Jesus forces people to follow Him against their will, then why doesn’t He just force everyone in the world to follow Him, seeing as though scripture says God is not willing for any to perish?

We can’t claim credit for our faith, it is a gift, and yet God is not willing any should perish, which means, if anyone perishes it is not because God was unwilling, it means they were.

It was God’s idea to remain invisible to man.

He became very visible when He stepped into humanity, becoming one of us.

Yet, Jesus ascended up again, out of man’s view.

So we can learn to take Him at His word, even if we can’t see Him.

Jesus said, those who believe but haven’t seen are more blessed than those who have seen.

“We walk by faith, not by sight.”

If you think living by faith is hard, try living without it.

There is a common humanity which can empathize with a fellow human in a place of great distress or need, and desire mercy for them. Mercy is the only hope for the hopeless, for they have nothing to bargain with.

Every person is like that before God: Spiritually and morally bankrupt. Hopeless.

But God is rich in mercy, offering hope for the hopeless, extending His loving hand to anyone who will call on the Lord Jesus Christ in truth.

……

When you find the meaning of life in Jesus Christ, you find that your life was meaningless without Him.

It’s easy to prove the world is meaningless. All the stuff going on will soon be gone and forgotten forever. If it did ever have a meaning, that meaning will have dissolved into nothing, gone and forgotten.

The meaning and purpose of your life is found in relation to your Creator.

Church Meetings:

Consider whether it’s better not to exert your will over others, but to ask the body of Christ present if you can do what you feel led to do? Anyone can facilitate in a meeting, such as, suggesting a course of action, but who has the authority to exert their will over their brothers and sisters? In my experience, when there is this mutual honor and respect the meeting is alive, but where one person wants to control everything in the meeting, even with a good intention, it lacks the blessing of the Holy Spirit.

Practical action does not contradict faith. If I look before crossing the road it does not mean I lack faith or am afraid of cars. If I take medicine or see a doctor it doesn’t mean I don’t have faith for God to heal me.

And as well, true faith is never about a contrived demonstration to prove to others, God or yourself that you have faith.

“Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves.” (Rom. 14:22)

For example, some might refrain from being vaccinated to try and demonstrate that they are not afraid of Covid, or that they don’t put their faith in a vaccine, or even that they are not under the control of the government.

For me, I don’t take the vaccine due to it still being under testing, and I have scientific doubts about it’s long term safety.

Another example is of Christians refraining from voting because they feel they would be then putting their faith in the government and not God.

Again, it’s a faulty understanding and application of faith.

My point being that if we have true faith in God we don’t need to try and prove anything to others or to God, or to try and convince them of our faith.

In past years I’ve had young believers confide with me that they feel guilty having money in the bank because they fear that God will see that money and consider them as putting their trust in money and not in God.

Another issue in the last days is that of preparing for the times of trouble prophesied in the Bible by storing food or becoming self sufficient. Some are scared of making preparations because they think God will somehow look at them and consider they don’t have faith that God will provide.

But this is a very fickle, tenuous kind of faith, where you can’t take any practical steps without a fear of doing it out of fear and not faith.

Food was made for man.

It is so complex that man is still gaining insight into how complex it is.

Show me a blind leader, and I will show you blind followers. Blind people follow blind leaders.

“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Gal. 5:19-21)

Paul is reminding them of this truth. In Romans he unequivocally states that, “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”, and therefore only those with faith in Christ can inherit the Kingdom of God. Without Christ all are guilty under the law.

The Galatians know this.

The implication of this passage is that all who are outside of Christ practice these works of the flesh which are listed. And Jesus taught that to desire something evil is the same as committing it.

Note the list, that envy or selfish ambition is in the same category as murder, in the sight of God.

Note, that the practice of any form of sexual immorality disqualifies one.

Now, those who are outside of Christ are already disqualified because of their past sins, which they remain guilty of as long as they are outside of Christ. If an unbeliever reads this passage he shouldn’t think he can gain the Kingdom of God by trying to be good. Even if he tries hard he is still guilty of his past sins. He needs to come to Christ and be forgiven of everything.

And, Paul is reminding the Galatians that, regardless of what they profess to believe, if they continue to practice any of these things they won’t inherit the Kingdom of God. Period. Whether they lose salvation, or were never saved to begin with, it makes no difference, because none who practice these things will inherit the Kingdom.

“…Those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” (Gal. 5:24)

Therefore, those who have not crucified the passions and desires of the flesh do not belong to Christ.

If such a person as described here has been born again, and therefore has the Holy Spirit in them, then they must be constantly grieving and resisting the Holy Spirit.

They would be constantly offending God, yet claiming to be His children.

So, it’s a very serious condition to be like the Corinthians.

Joe Biden, how does showing an ID when you vote threaten democracy? How does it infringe on people’s rights? Are people’s rights being threatened every time an ID is required to do bank transactions or travel?

And wouldn’t you agree that if an ID is not required for voting then it’s possible that people can make multiple votes, and thus eroding democracy?

Here is the game plan:

Claim to be the great defender of democracy, and thus distract attention away from your efforts to destroy it.

It shows the naked hypocrisy of some politicians.

“For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh…” (Philippians 3:3)

Regarding our salvation, we have no confidence or trust in anything we have done. No confidence in baptism, though we got baptized. No confidence in Sabbath days, though we like to take a day of rest. No confidence in our repentance, though we repented. No confidence in taking Communion, even though we take Communion. No confidence in a church, even though we love God’s people. No confidence in any man, no matter how good his teaching. No confidence in any religious rite or tradition. No confidence in ourselves….

….this is all in regard to our salvation.

Our confidence is in Christ alone.

It’s GOOD NEWS God wants you.

It’s GOOD NEWS that Jesus paid the price to forgive you on the Cross.

It’s GOOD NEWS you can have eternal life.

It’s GOOD NEWS you can know Jesus Christ and be filled with His Spirit, love and goodness.

It’s GOOD NEWS that you can experience the love of God for you if you repent and believe the GOOD NEWS.

It’s GOOD NEWS that God can make you a new person who will live forever.

It’s GOOD NEWS that Jesus can make you whole and heal the broken heart, mind and body.

It’s GOOD NEWS you no longer need to be a slave of sin and the devil.

It’s GOOD NEWS that you can escape the wrath of God and eternal punishment.

It’s GOOD NEWS that Jesus is calling you to repent and come to Him.

It’s GOOD NEWS that the salvation which God gives is so simple.

It’s either be born again by faith in Jesus Christ, or remain cut off from God by your sins.

“And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. (1 John 5:11-12)

“…Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.” (Rom. 1:3-4)

It was proof that He is everything He said He was, and that everything He said is true.

God in the flesh crucified. The Son of God, God incarnate, hanging from a cross by nails through His wrists.

Your life and soul depends on this.

This is the only way for you to be reconciled to God.

This is the only way for your sins to be forgiven.

This is the only way for you to receive a new heart.

He’s no longer on a Cross.

But if you’re going to live it is only on the basis that Christ was crucified for you.

People who use profanity to make their point are not worth listening to, for that very reason, because they think that by using profanity or blasphemy it makes them authoritative, intelligent or proves their point, or proves they are right. It would be foolish, then, to take them seriously.

Christian, are you filled with the Holy Spirit?

No, it has nothing to do with speaking in tongues.

Though that can happen.

……

“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,

4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?

6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.

7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.

8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,

10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,

12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thess.2:3-12)

Notes

a. A world leader is coming who will claim to be God.

b. Revelation 13 says the whole world will worship him.

c. Before he is revealed there is a falling away. This refers to professing Christians. Others can’t fall away as they never had the truth.

d. These “Christians” (and they might still think of themselves as Christians) worship this man, along with the world.

e. The reason the world believes the claim of this man is because of the miracles he performs, and, because they did not love the truth of God’s word He causes them to be delusional, as a judgment.

f. The “lie” mentioned here, which most people will believe, is that this man is God, or, implied, the Messiah or Savior of the world. Yet, verse 12 reveals the nature of this man’s message: “pleasure in unrighteousness”. It implies a religion which does not require repentance from sin, or, which redefines sin as not sin, or even worse, makes sin a spiritual virtue (which is a continuation of the ancient practice of idolatry combined with immorality).

So, the “lie” is twofold, concerning who the man is, and concerning his message.

g. It’s implied in Revelation that the world looks to this man for leadership and unity due to the intractable conflicts and problems it faces.

……

One of the key indicators of the state of our walk with the Lord is how many people we genuinely pray for each day.

Politics is okay if it’s not the instrument of an ideology.

……

If people are actually essentially good, and, religion is good, then, from ancient times till today, after all this time, we would have thought that mankind would have learned to get on together and love one another?

Then, people expect everything to change, when nothing has changed in the heart of man.

So, the only way mankind can try and create societal utopia is down the barrel of a gun, or by the edge of the sword.

This has been the pattern of such social experiments in the past, and this is where we’re heading now.

See Revelation chapter 13.

Some have a lot of happiness, others, a lot of sorrow. Some enjoy good health, others, not. Some enjoy all the comforts money can buy, others, get by without those comforts.

This is how life is.

Yet, there’s something even greater than life itself.

So great, that ultimately, these issues fade into insignificance in comparison.

It’s to be born again. Born a second time. To receive a second chance, a new beginning. To have the eternal life of God in you. To know Jesus Christ.

This is greater than life itself because all these issues of life will soon be gone and won’t matter.

What is true?

To come to Christ is to come to the truth.

To face Him is to face the truth.

To follow Him will mean dealing with the truth.

……

God made a nation of people in the Middle East, Israel, and gave them His law. The law tells us a lot about God and His values and standards. It wasn’t given to punish man, but to show us what God is like, and show us the sin that is in our hearts, like a mirror, and to prepare us to receive a Savior, who would be God in the flesh, Jesus Christ.

Jesus would reconcile us to God by His blood and spiritually recreate us, writing His laws in our hearts, conforming our nature to His nature.

The law shows us the great chasm between a Holy God and sinful man.

It would be truly horrifying to stand before God and be judged by His law. That’s the dreadful state every one of us finds himself in, without Christ.

The death of Christ Jesus on the Cross, and the shedding of His blood, bridged that chasm between God and man, fulfilling the law for us.

Jesus said, “I am the way!”.

Dear disciple of Jesus Christ, all the resources of the Kingdom of Heaven are open and available to you right now and always.

To the unconverted:

You might be thinking, How can I honor Jesus Christ on this Christmas day?

May I suggest the first step is to believe what He said.

Grab a Bible and have a read through Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and decide whether you believe Him and what He said or not.

……

If you absolutely know you’re saved, how can you not have joy?

……

I deleted someone’s comment equating me with a Muslim for not observing Christmas Day.

Its Dec 25th here in India right now. I’m having good fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

So far He hasn’t communicated any displeasure to me that I’m not celebrating Christmas.

I will keep you updated as the day progresses if I feel the Holy Spirit is grieved with me, and if He is not grieved then I will take it everything is fine.

I’m not against Christmas, I’m just not interested in it.

Do you want to abide in Him?

The person who is a new creation in Christ, and in whom He dwells, has the resources in Him to stand even if all the demons in the world, and even satan himself, were to personally show up and attack them at once. Christ overcame the world and the powers of darkness.

And you’re going to need their love if you want them to elevate you. Only by compromising the truth, right? Then you would no longer be a genuine Christian.

The same principle of testing applies to all, whether they call themselves apostles, prophets, reverends, pastors or whatever.

……

Right or wrong is not decided by popular vote, it’s already been determined by God and revealed in scripture. It’s irrelevant how many people think something is right if God has declared it to be wrong.

……

The way false teachers hedge and prevaricate when put on the spot is almost as bad as the false teaching itself.

……

Liberal progressive house church leader says the scriptures are not God’s word.

Bottom line, then? That there’s no moral absolutes.

Then, come to find out that this man approves of things which scripture says is immoral.

We can observe, then, that he wants certain immoral things to be moral, therefore, the only thing inconveniently in the way are the scriptures which condemn it, so, he decides to cancel out those scriptures in order to satisfy his conscience, so his conscience can find peace or assurance that the verses which condemn it are not really God’s word.

……

In the book of Revelation, “Babylon” can’t refer to the “world system” because it’s the world system which ultimately destroys it. It rides the Beast, but it’s not the Beast. It refers to false representations of Christianity: It’s not fully accepted by the world, nor is it accepted by Christ – it doesn’t belong to Christ or the world, hence, it is judged by God, but He uses the world as the instrument of judgment on her (Rev. 17 & 18).

Where there’s anything fake going on under the guise of Christianity, that’s a manifestation of Babylon.

……

Jesus’ conception in Mary’s womb was supernatural.

And to be born again is a supernatural manifestation inside a person.

“Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.”

If we are mistreated, even so, we should not allow our joy to be robbed.

Love will prevent us being defeated, and we are defeated if we allow anyone to steal our joy.

The Lord Jesus empowers His disciples to keep His words.

If people mistreat you it is their problem, not yours.

It only becomes your problem if you’re not willing to forgive and bless those who persecute you.

One thing you’ll learn about the church/denominational system is that most people who claim to be “in the ministry” will only be your friend if you in some way contribute to or support their “ministry”. This is one reason I’ve opted for relational church the last 30 years. It’s more real.

Fallen man doesn’t want to come to the light, scripture says.

He could if he wanted to, but he doesn’t want to.

The grace of God causes us to want to come to the light.

God is not preventing people from coming to the light, He has given them a free will, and they use that free will to choose not to.

And none of these facts contradict the absolute Sovereignty of God.

Christmas message

December 25, 2021

An excerpt from my Christmas message today:

Look at the first 200 years of Christianity. It flourished and spread through Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and even as far as India. Yet there were no church buildings, no cathedrals, no priests, no clergy, no statues or idols, no Christmas or Easter…. ….virtually nothing by which people today would identify something as Christian.

Was this accidental, or by design?

Was this to demonstrate to the world that Christianity is not a religion, as compared with the religions of the world?

If it’s not a religion, if observing all the traditions of Christianity doesn’t make you a Christian, then what is a Christian?

Look in the Gospels. Jesus spoke of His disciples, and what it means to be His disciple.

A disciple follows Jesus and abides in Him.

The birth of Christianity

December 22, 2021

Last night we read Acts chapter 2. Quite a chapter! The birth of Christianity in one single day. How? The Holy Spirit came. In one day a community of over 3000 people was created. And not just any community but a true brotherhood of love. Love prevailed. People ate together, helped one another, met together to hear the word of God daily. It happened spontaneously because it was the effect of the Holy Spirit. There was a colony of Heaven here on earth. A microcosm or model of the perfect society – a society of love. No need to sing John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’. Nothing needed to be imagined, the Kingdom of Christ Jesus had come in power and transformed thousands into children of God, living in righteousness, love and holiness before God and one another.

The Holy Spirit is still here on earth. What do you think? Has He changed?

The birth of Christianity described in Acts 2 can’t be attributed to the natural ability, skill, knowledge or oratory of the Apostles. It can only be attributed to a “rushing mighty wind” of the Spirit.

If Christianity was birthed this way it can only advance this same way.

Is there any substitute for being filled with the Holy Spirit?

You know, something which causes you to not need to be filled with the Holy Spirit?

……

The Lord’s Prayer

Ask the Father to bring His Kingdom and do His will today, and He will do it.

……

Freedom from the power of indwelling sin is only perceived as freedom by those who want to be free of it, otherwise, it’s perceived as a threat to one’s apparent freedom to do whatever one imagines. A person feels they are free to do whatever they want when their conscience is cut off from God – it is a sign they are lost and need Jesus Christ.

Which explains why certain verses of the New Testament disturb Liberal Progressive “Christians”. They feel it limits their freedom. This is because their conscience is defiled and they see such requirements from God as threats to their freedom, instead of agreeing with God and seeking deliverance from what the Bible names as sin.


“And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.

But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

(John 3:19-21)

When Jesus mentions men “practicing evil” most assuredly He means evil as spelled out clearly in God’s word.

Freedom in Christ over your sinful nature means you are no longer are a slave to the desires of your flesh, you are free to choose not to obey those wrong desires.

……

“I think, therefore, I am.”

Good, but, “I am” what, exactly?

A highly evolved animal?

Two thousand years ago someone walks up to Jesus and says, ‘You’re kind of a religious guy, aren’t you?’.

“Yeah, I like the way you raised Lazarus back to life after he had been dead four days! That was cool! I’ve always said it’s good for people to have religion, gives them something to believe in!”

Commented

I meant the false assertion that some people go off the rails because they take the Bible too seriously or make an idol of it, as you say.

Any wrong conduct shows people don’t understand the Bible, even in people who make the Bible an idol. Their problem is NOT that they took the word of God too seriously. That would be ridiculous.

The obnoxious religious person who swears by the Bible has not understood it.

And neither has the liberal progressive, who downgrades the authority of scripture, understood the Bible.

Usually, people who accuse others of making the Bible an idol do so because they themselves don’t understand it or live by it.

……

What is “born again”?

Jesus said, ‘you must be born again’, so, what is it?

It means He makes you a new person inside, in His image, and you are new because He now lives in you to make you new.

If He lives in you then you delight in His word and live by it. It can’t be that He lives in you and you’re opposed to Him and His word.

And you CAN live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God now because you have been born a second time, as a new creation in Him.

Jesus said, “You must be born again!”.

Joe Biden, you must be born again.

Who is this ‘invisible king’ who demands total submission to Woke ideology?

Whatever happened to freedom of thought, opinion and belief?

…..

Encourage people to think more, and help them to think logically, conceptually, and to have a rational line of thought.

Thinking about God and His word is a valid way to use your time.

Tyranny is when nothing can be questioned.

Welcome to the New World Order.

……

  • God has immense love for the human race.
  • God demonstrated His love for the human race by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for all people.
  • Those who believe on the Son have the Son.
  • Those who reject His immense love are self condemned.

See John 3:16, Rom. 5:8, 1 John 5:12, John 3:36

……

Mockers are instruments of the devil.

Some world leaders are detestable people, but it’s never right to mock them.

Many professing Christians now justify mocking unbelievers or politicians.

“…there will be mockers in the last time who will walk according to their own ungodly lusts.” (Jude 18)

There have always been mockers and people full of lust, therefore this refers to professing Christians in the last days.

It’s not yet a fully totalitarian regime so you can still give your opinion, on some things.

“For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

(1 Cor. 1:17-18)

The message of the Cross is the Good News, and it is the power of God.

Christ was crucified for your sins, died and was buried for three days, and rose again to be your Justifier and Redeemer.

The power to transform you, change your heart and mind, destroy sin and the devil’s work in you, and to forgive and present you faultless before God is all in believing this message of the Cross.

Healthy food, sunshine and exercise, together, is a natural vaccine, and by far the best.

“At least 108 million people were killed in wars in the twentieth century. Estimates for the total number killed in wars throughout all of human history range from 150 million to 1 billion.”

Do you think it’s going to stop this century?
