Ten Basic Facts about the New Testament Canon that every Christian should Memorize

The Great Commission

Nationalism: Jesus First

Whose kingdom are Christian nationalists really seeking, God’s or men’s? Christians who put their own nation and language ahead of Christ don’t have his spirit (Romans 8:9).

This ‘n’ That – Thankfully, one of the things God saves a sinner from is anger.

Which One – Make a choice.

Assurance of Salvation

To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy (Jude 24).

It would be a terrible thing for children (or adults!) to wonder how they fit in their families. While that is terrible in an earthly family, it is even more unsettling in the spiritual family.

Full Assurance – Hebrews 10:22

Thank You Jesus!

The Place of Enlargement

I believe it is God’s heart to bring His children to the place of enlargement.

Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy table should be full of fatness…

I Have Some Grouchy Readers! Today, I Heard From An Anti-Grain-ite…

Obama on released terrorists: They may return to activities detrimental to us … that’s why I released them  – The plot thickens: the continued activities of President MomJeans, the weakest of US presidents; whose job is to make Americans hunger for a future strong leader who will lead the USA into various foreign adventures.

The only thing worse will be to find out that President MomJeans exchanged these guys for a traitor.  Oh, wait…

Who’s writing this stuff?  It’s too transparent!  What?  You say Americans are eating it up?  Okay, never mind.  Carry on.

Chinese Exclusion Act

The Chinese Exclusion Act (1882) was a US law that shut off all immigration from China to the US except for scholars, merchants, diplomats and professionals.

Because America, the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave™, was a Great Melting Pot, you see.

AMERICA’ S WAR AGAINST THE KING OF ENGLAND:

REBELLION, REVOLUTION AND DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD

I Refuse to Obey!

This country was formed by rebels whom refused to take orders from the King of England on religious matters. This was the primary focus of our founding Fathers.

Actually, the primary focus of the founding fathers was financial gain, pure and simple.  Oh and they were also interested in power; earthly power.

They had no interest in religion, other than as it could serve their purposes of rebellion, a worldly kingdom and economic advancement.

“America: where the streets are paved with gold”
–A belief of immigrants who moved to America to improve their economic well-being, not their morals. Actually, the Bible says that it’s heaven where the streets are paved with gold.  But what’s a little literary license where the paving priorities of Babylon are concerned?

IF  “religious matters” had concerned the founders, they would have obeyed the many Bible verses which instruct Christian to submit to the civil authorities–whether the Christian agrees with the authorities or not.

Since none of the founders were Christians (although several pretended to be), refusing to take orders from the King of England became a matter of pride, financial gain and power. The founders had their rebellion–which the Bible says is the “same as witchcraft.”

“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”
1 Samuel 15:23

Romans 13 contains some of the Bible verses which the rebels disregarded:

Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
Romans 13:1-2

There’s a veritable cottage industry of “Christians” which revolves around discrediting Romans 13.  One of these wolves even asked “Would Jesus obey Romans 13?  Think on that for a moment.  What this is asking is “Would Jesus (the Word) obey the Word of God?”

It would be amusing if so many who claim to be Christians didn’t follow along after the wolves.  But the Bible warned of such behavior in the times in which we live.  That’s not amusing: that’s tragic.

But even if the mockers and scoffers succeeded in discrediting Romans 13, there are many, many other Bible verses commanding the Christian to obey the civil authorities.  A few follow.

Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
1 Peter 2:13-17

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
1 Timothy 2:1-3

Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
Titus 3:1

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government [authority].
2 Peter 2:9-10

The USA was founded by rebels in open rebellion.  Rather than try to obscure such a well-known fact, the founders employed that wonderfully American gift for turning vice into virtue.  Generations of American schoolchildren were then taught to adore rebellion, in open defiance of God and God’s law.

Then, the rebels supposedly dedicated this country to Jesus Christ, an individual whose name is not found even once in ANY founding document–and not because it wasn’t thought of.  The name of Jesus was proposed several times during the debates on the Bill of Rights.  Proposed amendments which contained the name of Jesus were voted down overwhelmingly.

At least Saul Alinsky, the mentor of both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton was honest.  In the dedication to his book, Rules for Radicals, Alinsky dedicated the book to the original rebel.

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history… the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.

The Americans rebelled and won their kingdom.

Some who fought against the king took the American rhetoric about “taxation without representation” too seriously.  Less than 10 years after the constitution was signed, farmers in western Pennsylvania protested the taxation in the Whiskey Rebellion.  They were put down ruthlessly with all the lethal power the young country could muster.

To further teach the lesson that rebels would henceforth be put down with no mercy, the Civil War was fought.  In America, there was only room for one set of rebels–those who carried out that first planned rebellion.

For years, many bought the lie that in America–that “christian” nation that has spawned dozens of antichrist religions and movements–one could be a friend of the world and a friend of God also.  It was called The American Dream.

It was a celebration of covetousness not found in God’s Word, but located in a land where the people were convinced that they could serve both God and mammon at the same time.

America was a gleam in the eye of the mystery of iniquity long before the land was settled.  That gleam has now taken form and has become that which was planned so very long ago.

It will be a cold splash of reality for true believers, but one foretold in the Bible.  For the lukewarm, it will pretty much be life as usual–after a few bumps and bruises to ensure that they know on which side their bread is buttered.

The USA began by lifting the high hand of rebellion to God.

The Bible declares it will end the same way.

Because fleshly men will not obey, God will finally be forced to take action.

“An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
Proverbs 17:11
