Whose Wisdom?

WHOSE WISDOM: The Wisdom of God or the wisdom of the world?

WHOSE WISDOM: The Wisdom of God or the wisdom of the world?

God’s Word contrasts the wisdom of God with the wisdom of the world.  Those who embrace worldly wisdom are enamored with signs and wonders, the traditions of men, ethereal esoteric knowledge, and/or  amazing philosophical feats of intellectual prowess; all of which can be considered to be the basic principles of the world.  They will not set their feet upon the ancient paths, the way of God’s eternal salvation.  The gospel of our salvation is the fruit of God’s wisdom.  God’s Word tells us that His plan for the redemption of mankind has been executed according to His wisdom.

15 Because My people have forgotten Me, They have burned incense to worthless idols.  And they have caused themselves to stumble in their ways, From the ancient paths, to walk in pathways and not on a highway,…Jeremiah 18:15

 18 For thus says the Lord, Who created the heavens, Who is God, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it, Who did not create it in vain, Who formed it to be inhabited:  “I am the Lord, and there is no other.  19 I have not spoken in secret, In a dark place of the earth; I did not say to the seed of Jacob, ‘Seek Me in vain’; I, the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.  20 Assemble yourselves and come; Draw near together, You who have escaped from the nations.  They have no knowledge, Who carry the wood of their carved image, And pray to a god that cannot save.  21 Tell and bring forth your case; Yes, let them take counsel together.  Who has declared this from ancient time?  Who has told it from that time?  Have not I, the Lord?  And there is no other God besides Me,  A just God and a Savior; There is none besides Me.  22 Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth!  For I am God, and there is no other.”  Isaiah 45:18-22

 25 Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began 26 but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith-27 to God, alone wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever.  Amen.  Romans 16:25-27

 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.  7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace 8 which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, 9 having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, 10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth-in Him.  11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to His will, 12 that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.  Ephesians 1:3-12

 In 1 Corinthians the first chapter, Paul by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, lays out clearly and concisely that the wisdom of God is far superior to the wisdom of man, and results in salvation from the just judgment of God that rests upon every human being because of their sinful rebellion against Him.  Man’s wisdom lies impotent in the dust, unable to keep the sinner from sin, and powerless to present sinners before our Holy God as acceptable and cleansed from their sin.

17 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.  18 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.  19 For it is written:  “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”  20 Where is the wise?  Where is the scribe?  Where is the disputer of this age?  Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?  21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.  22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.  25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.  1 Corinthians 1:17-25


 “God’s Word contrasts the wisdom of God with the wisdom of the world. “


All man-made efforts to attain to the knowledge of God are empty and void of any substance.  There may be an appearance of realizing knowledge of God, or god, through the deceit of the god of this age which he perpetrates against sinners to keep them blinded in their rebellion and sin and in the way of eternal destruction.  The wisdom of God, however, leads us to Him, and that way is through the way of the cross of Jesus Christ as declared to us in the Holy Scriptures, the Bible.  The truth that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and rose again from the dead for our life, is the wisdom of God on display for the salvation of sinners and for His glory.  Any plan of salvation that originates in the wisdom of men is a deceit and a fraud and leads only to darkness, depravity, and destruction.

For those of us who have eschewed the wisdom of this world and instead embraced the wisdom of God through our faith in Jesus Christ and His glorious gospel, we can be assured that God our Father in heaven has made every provision for us that we may walk in His wisdom, while we wait for Christ, and turn from the tired old tricks of the world that are used by the lost to get them through their sojourn on this earth.  The lost employ so many different methods to deal with their problems, but they will not seek the wisdom that comes from God and is their only genuine solution.  They love psychology, psychiatry, recreation, escape through drugs or alcohol, rationalization, entertainment, expert advice, advice from family or friends, religion, and the myriad of self-help books that are so prevalent in the marketplace.  For us, believers, God has promised to establish us in His wisdom, to give us wisdom when we ask Him, and to provide His preserved wisdom in His Word the Bible.  How much better is it for us to go to the fountain of crystal clear water rather than the puddle of putrid pollution?

30 But of Him you re in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God-and righteousness and sanctification and redemption-31 that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”  1 Corinthians 1:30-31

27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles:  which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.  28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.   29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.  Colossians 1:27-29

 15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.  17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.  Ephesians 5:15-17

 16 Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.  17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.  Colossians 3:16-17

 5 Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time.  6 Let you speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.  Colossians 4:5-6

 15…and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation-as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you,16  as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.  2 Peter 3:15-16

 12 For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth.  13 Yes, I think it is right, as long as I am in this tent, to stir you up by reminding you, 14 knowing that shortly I must put off my tent, just as our Lord Jesus Christ showed me.  15 Moreover I will be careful to ensure that you always have a reminder of these things after my decease.  2 Peter 1:13-15

 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.  6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.  7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.  James 1:5-8

13 Who is wise and understanding among you?  Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom.  14 But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth.  15 This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.  16 For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.  17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.  18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.   James 3:13-18


 “All man-made efforts to attain to the knowledge of God are empty and void of any substance. “


We must realize that the gospel of our salvation has nothing to do with the wisdom of mankind.  As we follow Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior we must be careful to listen to and obey only Him, relying on the wisdom that He imparts to us through His Word and His Holy Spirit.  Throughout the ages much that has passed itself off as Christianity has relied heavily upon the wisdom of man and has been used by the devil to lead many astray, away from the simplicity that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  May our God and Savior establish us in Christ Jesus and make us stand upon His wisdom for His glory!

Christians and Judging: When, Where and How

JUDGING: Christians are commanded to judge

JUDGING: Christians are commanded to judge

IS A CHRISTIAN TO JUDGE?  YES!

WHEN IS A CHRISTIAN TO JUDGE?

WHERE IS A CHRISTIAN TO JUDGE?

HOW IS A CHRISTIAN TO JUDGE?

“Judge not, that ye be not judged.”
Matthew 7:1

It’s been said that Matthew 7:1 is the world’s favorite Bible verse.

It’s easy to see why Jesus’ words in Matthew 7:1 would be beloved of pagans, the wicked and the lost.  Taken out of context, it’s the perfect retort to anyone shining a light in the dark.  It’s another way of saying “Leave me to my sin.  Who are you to judge?

But wrenching Matthew 7:1 out of context is a good example of the ‘One Twisted Scripture makes for Bad Doctrine‘ rule.  Which brings us to  When I say “I am a Christian.”

This link was posted because it is a wonderful example of what many Christian websites in 2014 feature.  While there is still some traditional Bible study going on, there seems to be much more posting of poems and quotes instead.

The following poem is a good example.  The poem, When I say “I am Christian” contains some good thoughts. The reader has to go all the way to the last verse to find the error–and it’s a common one for the times in which we live.

“When I say…”I am a Christian”
I do not wish to judge.
I have no authority.
I only know I’m loved.”

This is not at all biblical, although many Christians today believe it to be.  Christians not only have the authority (of the Bible), they  are commanded to judge

  1. not according to appearance [John 7:24]
  2. in righteousness [John 7:24];
  3. not to condemnation; [Luke 6:37]
  4. in love;
  5. fruit [Matthew 7:17-20]
  6. doctrinal error [2 Thessalonians 3:6]
  7. between the brethren [1 Corinthians 6:5]
  8. in a spirit of meekneess [Galatians 6:1]

Christians are not only to judge, they are commanded by the Bible to judge.

Of the one or two Bible verses the world is familiar with.  Matthew 7:1Judge not” is their favorite.

Judge others, Jesus said to

“…we all know the atheist’s three favorite verses in the Bible:  “Judge not lest you be judged” (Matthew 7:1), “He who is without sin cast the first stone” (John 8:7), and “God is love” (1 John 4:8).  Why are these his favorites?  Because they allow the atheist to escape accountability to God.  He is guilty before God and doesn’t like to hear about it…”

It’s a sign of the times in which we live that many who call themselves Christians know the claims of the world better than they know the Bible. One such example is “Christians, stop judging non-Christians”.  Written by a supposed Christian, this is 100% completely opposite of what God’s Word commands.

Yes, there is 1 Corinthians 5:12 (a favorite of all who do not witness).

“For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge?”
1 Corinthians 5:12

Paul is not saying “Do not judge outsiders.” Paul is saying “You have no authority over those outside of the church. You have no recourse to those whom you judge outside of the church.”

The Bible is very clear about judging those outside the Church. Two in particular stand out.

Most Christians ignore both instances.

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Mark 16:15

Preaching the gospel requires Christians to proclaim that all men are sinners. That is offensive to the lost. It is a judgment on the world to tell it that it is lost and headed to hell. Most church-goers handle this by not sharing their faith. Many accommodate the world by agreeing that “You really are a good person. Who am I to judge?

The second instance?

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”
2 Corinthians 6:14

This means don’t hang out with; don’t be friends with those who are in the world; i.e., heathens, non-Christians. If Christians are not even to eat with others who profess Christianity if that one is in a lifestyle of sin, then 2 Corinthians 6:14 is serious.

Of course, to determine who it is we would be unequally yoked to requires judgment.

Most modern Christians handle this verse by completely ignoring it.

“Judge not.”

The world knows that part of Matthew 7:1 by heart. Many today who profess Jesus agree.  Many who sit in pews confuse Jesus with Barney the purple dinosaur.  Why share their faith?  That might end up in a disagreement.  It’s far easier to mumble “Judge not” and give everyone a big Barney hug.  For many who sit in churches, their favorite verse is one that is not even in the Bible.

Go along to get along.”

Again, today’s church-goers pay more attention to the claims of the world than what the Bible says.

With only a little effort, that defect could be remedied.

What a Wonderful Savior

WHAT A WONDERFUL SAVIOR!

WHAT A WONDERFUL SAVIOR!

Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior is such a wonderful Savior.  I would like to share verses from Scriptures to encourage our hearts with the wonder of the glory of Jesus Christ.  May the Lord bless our hearts and minds as we read and contemplate these verses.  How many times do we quote verses out of Philemon?  The first verse that I want to share to start us on our study of the wonder of Jesus Christ comes from Philemon.

I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers, hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints, that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.  Philemon 4-6

As we understand and contemplate all of the good things that are in us through Jesus Christ our Lord we can then effectively share our faith in Him with others.

We are told:

“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”  Acts 4:12

First and foremost, God in His mercy and love sent His Son Jesus Christ as our Savior and He is the only One who saves.  No one else can save us from the wrath of God that our rebellion and sin deserves.

14 “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:14-16

 “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”  John 3:36

 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners , Christ died for us.  9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.  10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.  Romans 5:8-10

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.  2 Corinthians 5:21

 Jesus Christ has reconciled us to God through His death, has justified us through His blood, and guarantees our salvation through His life.  He became sin for us that we would become the righteousness of God in Him.  What a wonderful Savior!

While we wait here for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, we have unlimited resources through Him while we live for and serve Him.

20 For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. 21 Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God,  22 who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.  2 Corinthians 1:20-22

 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.   1 John 2:27

 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.  Colossians 2:9-10

 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect?  It is God who justifies.  34 Who is he who condemns?  It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.  35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  36 As it is written:  “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”  37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.  38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:33-39

 2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.  2 Peter 1:2-4

 1 My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin.  And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.  2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.  1 John 2:1-2

 16 For indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give aid to the seed of Abraham.  17 Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.  18 For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.  Hebrews 2:16-18


 

“Through Jesus Christ we have access to God and all the resources that He has for His saints.”


 

 14 Seeing them that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.  15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.  16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.  Hebrews 4:14-16

 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jess Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.  Ephesians 1:3

 15 Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His might power 20 which he worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,21  far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.  Ephesians 1:15-21 & 3:14-21

 14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height-19 to know the love of Christ which passes  knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.  Ephesians 3:14-21

Through Jesus Christ we have access to God and all the resources that He has for His saints.  We must always keep in mind that the blessings we can enjoy here and now through Christ are exceedingly greater than we can ask or think, and He meets all of our needs; the need to be loved, the need to be forgiven, the need to be strengthened, the need for sound instruction and guidance from His Word, the need to be encouraged during difficulty, tribulation, and persecution.  Jesus Christ is our all in all both now and for eternity.  What a wonderful Savior!

As amazing as His riches are for us as we wait for Him, we will share in even greater blessings when we join Him in Heaven, whether He takes us home, or He comes back again.  It astounds me those things that God has in store for us when we are with Him forever.

13 But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, 14 to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.  2 Thessalonians 2:13-14

 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in Heaven for you, 5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,8  whom having not seen you love.  Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,9  receiving the end of your faith –the salvation of your souls.  1 Peter 1:3-9

 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,… 2 Corinthians 4:17

 8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.  9 Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.  2 Corinthians 4:17

 21 For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.  22 But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell.  23 For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better.  24 Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you. Philippians 1:21-24

20 For our citizenship is in Heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.   Philippians 3:20-21

 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is reveled, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.  And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. 1 John 3:2

  What awaits us when we see Christ is more glorious then we can ever imagine, but God’s Word makes it clear that the glory and wonder of being with Christ will make all that we have endured, while we wait for Him, well worth it.  This is especially true since we are in no way worthy of His great love, mercy, grace and abundant blessings which He bestows upon us through His Son Jesus Christ in regards to salvation, living for Him and being with Him for eternity.  What a wonderful Savior!  Let us be eager to share the good news of this wonderful Savior with those that we meet and know.

Trusting the Savior

TRUSTING THE SAVIOR: Trusting the One who never will let you down.

TRUSTING THE SAVIOR: Trusting the One who never will let you down.

I am amazed at the grace of Jesus Christ and His awesome love for me.  How could He love such a one as me?  When I was growing up I believed what my father told me about God, that He didn’t exist.  I believed what my father said, that religion was a crutch.  Did I believe him because he was such a wonderful father?  No I believed him because I was such a wicked sinner, even at a tender age.

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me. Psalm 51:5

 1 Do you indeed speak righteousness, you silent ones?  Do you judge uprightly, you sons of men?  2 No, in heart you work wickedness; You weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.  3 The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.  Psalm 58:1-3

 It is by God’s grace that I am saved.

Can we be saved apart from the gracious work of God in our hearts?  Can we be saved by adhering to certain doctrines?  Can we be saved when someone “leads” us to Christ or by having an emotional experience during a church service?  What exactly does it mean to be saved?

31 “Behold, the days are coming, says, the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah-32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord.  33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord:  I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.  34 “No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord.  For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”  Jeremiah 31:31-34

 There is a transaction that has taken place here between the sinner and the living God.  It is initiated by God and results in the wicked impenitent being reconciled to the Holy God and being converted from one doomed to destruction to a recipient of the life of God through faith in Jesus Christ.  This life of God is not a merely academic acknowledgement of the key doctrines of the Bible, but is the result of meeting the living God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said:  “We ought to obey God rather than men.  30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus whom you murdered by hanging on a tree.  31 Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Savior to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.  32 And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.”  Acts 5:29-32

 18 “But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled.  19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, 21 whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.  Acts 3:18-21 

Again we see that God is vitally and intimately involved in the salvation of those who repent of their sins and put their trust in Jesus Christ.  He raised up Jesus Christ from the dead and exalted Him to His right hand to give repentance and forgiveness of sins to all who believe.  Refreshing comes from the presence of the Lord and we receive the Holy Spirit when we believe in Jesus Christ.

There are those who have a testimony of belief in the truth without receiving the life of the Savior.  There are those who continue for a while, but then fall away.  They may be the product of others who are zealous for numbers, but not zealous for bringing the lost to genuine faith and trust in the living Savior so that they may be saved.

1 And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said:  2 “The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, 3 and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come.  4 Again, he sent out other servants, saying, “Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready.  Come to the wedding.”’  5 “But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business.  6 And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them.  7 “But when the king heard about it, he was furious.  And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.  8 “Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy.  9 Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’  10 “So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all who they found, both bad and good.  And the wedding hall was filled with guests.  11 But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment.  12 “So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’  And he was speechless.  13 Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’  14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”  Matthew 22:1-14

Without a testimony of experience with the living God, our protests of faith and belief are empty, false, void; deserving punishment for presuming and pretending that which isn’t true.

1 Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said:  “Father, the hour has come.  Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, 2 as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.  3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” John 17:1-3

  I met Jesus Christ many years ago when I called out to God the Father through Him.   Jesus Christ met me and made a covenant with me exchanging His life for my life.  This once wicked atheist met the living God and so was transformed from an unbeliever to a believer, from being dead in my trespasses and sins to being alive through faith in Him, from being a captive in Satan’s kingdom of darkness to being translated into the kingdom of light of God’s Beloved Son.  So began my new life of faith in the Savior Jesus Christ, and the walk of trust and obedience that He calls us to.  Early into this new life of faith, I had to make a decision to either follow the ideas and opinions of people or trust in God’s Word the Bible.  I was brought to apply the obedience of the faith and trusted that God’s Word is true.  God brought me to the point where I prayed to Him and said, “Lord I am going to trust You and Your Word.”  After that prayer I had a greater understanding of the Bible when I read it.


 

“Since, false teaching and error in the church is endemic, during my walk with Jesus Christ, God my Father, has twice called me to stand up for His truth by reassuring me He is with me Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.”


Since, false teaching and error in the church is endemic, during my walk with Jesus Christ, God my Father, has twice called me to stand up for His truth by reassuring me He is with me Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Both times I had no idea what was coming, but I was able, by God’s grace, to stand for the truth and expose and refute error.  I saw good fruit from my commitment to Him.  I saw people turned away from dangerous teachers and error and instead encouraged to trust the truth of the Bible that God has preserved for His children.  It is the Bible that we must turn to for God’s truth, because it is His testimony of His covenant with His people through the ages by means of faith in Jesus Christ.  Paul makes it clear in 1 Corinthians chapter 15 that we are saved through belief in the gospel.

1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by  which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you-unless you believed in vain.  3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received:  that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, 4 and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,.. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4

 Through belief in the gospel we know the Savior Jesus Christ.  This is an experiential knowledge, as recorded in the Bible.  We receive the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus Christ, and God who is alive, works in our hearts and minds.

1 O foolish Galatians!  Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified?  2 This only I want to learn from you:  Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?  3 Are you so foolish?  Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?  Galatians 3:1-3

14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height-19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.  Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21

God answers my prayers,  He gives me peace and the ability to praise Him in difficult situations.  His assurance of salvation protects my mind and heart from the attacks of the enemy and my own sinful nature.  God has used His Word in my life more than once to convict me of sin and bring about genuine repentance.  The book of Romans was used by God in a powerful way to convict me of my sin and show me that salvation is only possible through faith in Jesus Christ.  By His grace, when I was questioning the lack of power in my life, I never questioned Him, I knew the problem was with me.   When my faith has been assailed by unbelief, I have cried out to Him for faith and been bolstered in my trust in Him.  By God’s merciful provision, I have not allowed anything to be more important to me than the love of my Savior and my love for Him, and His grace keeps me true to Him.

Even though my “church” experience hasn’t really been as positive as I would like because there is so much compromise and apostasy proliferating among the leadership and the attenders, I still trust God and His provision for me.  Also, if it wasn’t for the prophecy that God has provided in the Bible, warning that this would be the case, I would be very confused and discouraged.  All I can say is that God has been very merciful to me, and has graciously covered me with His love.  His children know His loving presence, kindness and goodness poured out upon them abundantly through our glorious Savior Jesus Christ.  We can have confidence in our experiences with Him while we await glory, because He has given us the testimony of Himself in His Word, the Bible, confirmed to us by the Holy Spirit.

1 To the pilgrims of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, 2 elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ:  3 Grace to you and peace be multiplied.  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6  In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love.  8 Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, 9 receiving the end of your faith-the salvation of you souls.  10 Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, 1 Peter 1:1-10.

Receiving the Savior

RECEIVING THE SAVIOR: Jesus and the Woman of Samaria

RECEIVING THE SAVIOR: Jesus and the Woman of Samaria

Does Jesus Christ require that we acknowledge and repent of our sin when we put our faith in Him?  The testimony of the Scriptures says yes!  Paul lists sins that will keep sinners from the kingdom of God and then says those who are saved by Jesus Christ no longer live that way.

9Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?  Do not be deceived.  Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.  11And such were some of you.  But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.  1 Corinthians 6:9-11

 Jesus Christ demonstrates this doctrine in practice by the way He interacted with men and women in the gospels.

Jesus Christ’s divine appointment with the woman at the well in Samaria is recorded for us in John chapter 4.  Jesus Christ tells the woman about the living water that He can give her.  She desires the living water because in her mind she won’t need to come to the well anymore and so can completely avoid embarrassing encounters with the men of the city.  When she requests the water He has offered her, Jesus asks her to go get her husband and then come back.  She tells Him that she has no husband and that is when He confronts her with her sin.

7A woman of Samaria came to draw water.  Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.”  8For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.  9Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?”  For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.  10Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”  11The woman said to him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep.  Where then do You get that living water?  12Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?”  13Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, 14but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst.  But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”  15The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.”  16Jesus said to her, “Go call your husband, and come here.”  17The woman answered and said, “I have no husband.”  Jesus said to her, “You have well said, ‘I have no husband,’ 18“for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.”  19The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet.  20Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”  21Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.  22You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.  23But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.  24God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”  25The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ).  “When He comes, He will tell us all things.”  26Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.”  John 4:7-26


 Jesus Christ, the Master Evangelist, brings this woman to the revelation of Himself after He confronted her with her sin.”


Jesus Christ, the Master Evangelist, brings this woman to the revelation of Himself after He confronted her with her sin.  He adroitly leads her to Himself and her response is to go back into the city and tell the men of the city about her encounter with Jesus.

28The woman then left her water-pot, went her way into the city, and said to the men, 29“Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did.  Could this be the Christ?”  30Then they went out of the city and came to Him.  John 4:28-30

 Jesus Christ changed this woman by telling her the truth, including the truth about her sin.  This tremendous work wrought in her heart by the Living God so impressed the men of the city that they were compelled to go to Him and they believed in Him because of her testimony about Him.  Jesus Christ stayed in Samaria for two days at the request of the Samaritans and then many more believed because of His own word.

41And many more believed because of His own word.  42Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.”  John 4:41-42

 The Samaritan woman at the well, there by necessity at that hot hour of the day, met the Messiah Who used her compulsion to offer her what she truly needed, salvation from her sins through repentant belief in Him, and the gift of everlasting life.

And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.  1 John 4:14 

 Again we see that those genuinely drawn to Jesus turn from their sin in the story of Zacchaeus in Luke 19:1-10.

1Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.  2Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich.  3And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature.  4So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way.  5And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.”  6So he made hast and came down, and received Him joyfully.  7But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, “He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.”  8Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.”  9And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; 10for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

 This, another divine appointment for the purpose of saving a sinner, reveals how those who joyfully receive the Lord, knowing Who He is and what He has done for them, are not insulted when confronted  with their sin.  Instead, they confess, repent of their sin, and obey the Son of God, Jesus Christ the Messiah, their Savior and Lord.

We have seen two accounts from the Scriptures of those who gladly received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and turned from their sin.  But what about those who want to cling to their sin and want Jesus Christ for fire insurance, what happens to them?  They will ultimately fall away in disbelief and disillusionment.  The story of the rich young ruler is a good example of what happens to those who refuse to reject their sin and put their faith in and follow Jesus Christ.

18Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying “Good teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”  19So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good?  No one is good but One, that is God.  20You know the commandments:  ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘do not bear false witness,’ ‘Honor your father and your mother.’”  21And he said, “All these I have kept from my youth.”  22So when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, “You still lack one thing.  Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”  23But when he heard this, he became very sorrowful, for he was very rich.  24And when Jesus saw that he became very sorrowful, He said, “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!  25For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”  26And those who heard it said, “Who then can be saved?”  27But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”  28Then Peter said, “See, we have left all and followed You.”  Luke 18:18-28

 The rich young ruler, confident of his own goodness, came to Jesus believing Him to be a good man, calling Him Good Teacher.  Jesus Christ set Him straight by disclosing that only God is good, to call Him good he must acknowledge that He is God.  The rich ruler wanted eternal life, but he wanted it on his terms by his own good efforts, so he didn’t realize Jesus Christ is God.  Jesus Christ got right to the heart of the matter and told him that he should sell all that he had and follow Him.  Religion was good for this rich young ruler, he esteemed himself to be a good man and felt quite certain he could acquire heaven by his own efforts.  He did not want to cast all that he had accomplished and acquired to follow a Good Teacher.  He did not acknowledge that Jesus Christ is God the Savior and he went away sorrowful because he thought he could have it all with eternal life too, without acknowledging his sinfulness and his need of the Savior.  In contrast, Peter and the rest of the disciples had left all to follow Jesus Christ because they knew that He is the Son of God, the Savior of the world.

25“He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.  If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there my servant will be also.  26If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.”  John 12:25-26 

 We who belong to Jesus Christ by faith in Him have turned from our sin and turned to Him.  We have turned from our own evil way and have embraced His way, eager to please our glorious Lord and Savior.  These verses out of Titus chapter two are true about us, His redeemed beloved children.

11For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.  Titus 2:11-14

  To God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord be the glory!

The Sinner

THE SINNER:  Those of us who know the Lord must remember the sinner's desperate plight as we share the gospel of our salvation in love,

THE SINNER: Those of us who know the Lord must remember the sinner’s desperate plight as we share the gospel of our salvation in love, trusting the Holy Spirit to convict the sinner and bring him to salvation.

Scriptures give a clear picture of the precarious position of any sinner.  Those of us who know the Lord must remember their desperate plight as we share the gospel of our salvation in love, trusting the Holy Spirit to convict the sinner and bring him to salvation.  We must remember that it is the work of God in the heart of the sinner that brings about repentant faith in the Lord Jesus Christ since the sinner is completely impotent to do anything about their lost and damned condition.  Here are verses from the Scriptures that reveal how entrapped the sinner is to sin, the devil and the world.

As we diligently search the Scriptures a clear picture surfaces from the Old and New Testaments showing how impossible it is for any person to deliver themselves from their sin.

21What wilt thou say when He shall punish thee? For thou hast taught them to be captains, and as chief over thee: shall not sorrows take thee, as a woman in travail?22 And if thou say in thine heart, Wherefore come these things upon me? For the greatness of thine iniquity are thy skirts discovered, and thy heels made bare. 23Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? Then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.  Jeremiah 13:21-23

 1Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither His ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear. 3For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. 4None calls for justice, nor any pleads for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. 5They hatch vipers’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eats of their eggs dies, and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper. 6Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. 7Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. 8The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goes therein shall not know peace. 9Therefore is judgment far from us, neither does justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. 10We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men. 11We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us. 12For our transgressions are multiplied before Thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;13In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. 14And judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.  15Yea, truth fails; and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no judgment.  Isaiah 59:1-15

 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.  John 8:34

 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slave’s whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death or of obedience leading to righteousness?  Romans 6:16

 These verses from the Old and New Testaments paint a very bleak picture depicting the enslavement of the sinner to sin.  Slaves have no freewill of their own.  Slaves are held captive by their master.  Slaves of sin cannot do the good that God requires.  They are blind to righteousness, captive by the lies of their own hearts, too feeble to turn from wickedness and pursue righteousness.   They of themselves cannot answer general call of salvation given to all sinners by the Savior.  They are dead in their trespasses and sins led astray from the truth of God by their enemy the devil who feigns great love and compassion for the wretched wicked sinner as he deceives the whole world leading them to perdition.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.  Revelation 12:9

…and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive to do his will.  2 Timothy 2:26

 1And you hath He quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience: 3Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.  Ephesians 2:1-3

14Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; 15And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.  Hebrews 2:14-15


 “Scriptures give a clear picture of the precarious position of any sinner.  Those of us who know the Lord must remember their desperate plight as we share the gospel of our salvation in love, trusting the Holy Spirit to convict the sinner and bring him to salvation.”


Dead men fearing death are non-responsive to the gospel call.  They are captive to the enemy of their souls who leads them astray through his multi-hued dark doctrines of deception.  The sinner enslaved by his sin and held captive by the enemy is twice bound with chains of destruction incapable of receiving the grace of God held forth in the gospel.  Only the powerful act of God in the life of the sinner is effective to save the ensnared sinner from deception and destruction.  However, often times the lost compelled by regret look for a way to turn around, but they reject the gospel and look to the wisdom of the world to lead them in right living.  This third trap binds the sinner in a wicked web woven with lies that confirms them in their headlong plunge into damnation.

18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also. 21But all these things will they do unto you for My name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. 23He that hates Me hates My Father also. 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.25 But this comes to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated Me without a cause.  John 15:18-25

42Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love Me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of Myself, but He sent me. 43Why do ye not understand my speech? Even because ye cannot hear My word. 44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45And because I tell you the truth, ye believe Me not.  John 8:42-45

 18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness;24But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.  1 Corinthians 1:18-24

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5Do ye think that the Scripture says in vain, The Spirit that dwells in us lusts to envy? 6But He gives more grace. Wherefore He says, God resists the proud, but gives grace unto the humble.7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  James 4:4-7

 The world is at enmity with Christ and His gospel of salvation.  The world, led by Satan, will put forth a facsimile of the genuine gospel of grace but will mar it with the smudges of lies that attack Jesus Christ and His work of salvation done on behalf of the beleaguered sinner.  God is gracious and sends out His gospel call to all who will repent and put their faith in His beloved Son, Jesus Christ.

16“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  17For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.  18He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  19And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  20For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.  21But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”  John 3:16-21

God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9), however, the general gracious call of God to lost sinners will never be answered because of the triple bonds of captivity that bind the sinner in her night of darkness.  Unless and until God works in the heart of the sinner no flesh will be saved!  The con perpetuated by the flesh, the devil and the world will only lead the sinner into great depravity, many times all the while believing they know and are serving even Christ Himself.  The efficacious call of God upon the life of the sinner is the only way a rebel will turn from their own way to God’s way.  Those who believe and teach decisional salvation are sponsoring a knave’s ruse that guarantees the sinner’s condemnation in hell.  From the bible passages quoted it is clear, as Jesus said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”  (Matthew 19:26, Mark 10:25, Luke 18:27)  As we share the gospel of Jesus Christ, exhorting and encouraging the lost to put their faith in Christ, may we with humble hearts trust the living God to do the work which He alone is capable of doing, reconciling lost men, women, and children to Himself.  We must leave the results with Him.  Let us throw off the wiles of the enemy and know it is God who saves the sinner.

Obama fundraises while Putin is on the loose

Will voters give Rick Perry another chance? – Does this mean the NEW RICK PERRY, the guy who suddenly has started wearing glasses?   In 2016, voters will be voting against Barack Obama–who will not be on the ballot. They will be voting for a strong leader who will lead America into foreign adventures and “make things right again.”  Most likely, they will want their strong leader to be smart too–maybe even as smart as Rick Perry looks in his glasses!

Americans have this image of themselves being independent-minded proud patriots, standing strong.

In reality, most are lemmings with rings in their noses, mindless zombies who can’t wait to get into line, being led by a media to wherever the puppet-masters want them to go.

They are proud though.

White House Extends Iran Nuclear Deadline by Four Months

The six-month interim agreement, Kerry claimed, “has been a clear success.” That’s why they need more time.

===MISCELLANEOUS

Discernment

“Convert, pay tax or die” claims directive to Christians from the latest  In-Your-Face Muslim Group – Luckily this wasn’t directed at America–where it would have affected very few people.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer: spirit of antichrist? – Very well-researched, well put-together article on Bonhoeffer, who has been exalted as a Christian.  There is a question that is rarely asked that should be asked of Bonhoeffer AND ANYONE WHO CLAIMS TO BE A CHRISTIAN: How can you claim to be a Christian if you do not believe the basics of the faith?

That question is rarely asked because too many are afraid of “upsetting” someone or “offending” someone–and that’s too bad.  The pews are full of people who are something other than Christians. There are probably more pagans sitting in Christian pews each week than sit in Wicca circles.  The end times will make this situation perfectly clear; to deny these people the “benefit of the doubt” they now receive.

After the events of the end times, NO PRETENDER will be able to stand before God and say “You know, I really love Jesus. Really I do.”

Either one will prove that love or one will follow the great wave of humanity and stand with the dragon and the spirit of antichrist.  Today, that great wave of humanity stand with antichrist but by putting in an hour each week on Sunday, pretenders can lay claim to the benefits of Christianity–with none of its requirements.

Billionaire Carlos Slim calls for three-day work week – But will Slim put his money where his mouth is?  Do they ever? It would be easy enough for Slim to order a 3-day work week at all of the enterprises he controls–which are many.

Flying Spies: Surveillance Planes After The Cold War

Penciled Prayers: Fierce Wolves – This prayer seems confused.  Some wolves (okay, “act like wolves” is a question of semantics)  may be saved?!?

Some disguise themselves as shepherds and sheep. Some may be saved, but so deceived, so spiritually immature and inept, they ignorantly act like a wolf–all the while convincing Christians that wolves don’t bite.

A wolf is not saved.  By definition. Of EITHER word.  How about a prayer for those who pray confused prayers?

O Lord, the names of so many wolves come to mind. And I had determined, for the protection and edification of Your saints, to name them when I published this prayer. But I thank You, Holy Spirit. I believe, through bringing Scripture to mind and pricking my conscience–reminding me of how proud and prone to conflict I can be–You have helped me to see a published prayer is not the place to name names.

Not naming names because the one praying is “proud?”

Hopelessly confused.

Confusion is one of the great problems of today’s Church.  And confusion is spread by many means. For those who may think this assessment is too harsh: the Christian thing to do for a confused believer is to tell them they are confused.

5 Insights Into Idolatry

California citizens can go to “water school” instead of paying fine

power-of-salvation-the-gospel-of-Jesus-Christ“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
Romans 1:16

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 – (h/t:B)

Swedish TV series explores shrinking differences between robots and humans – Some narratives are harder to pull off than others…

Schools warned of health care crisis due to illegal immigrant children – Here’s the question our brave Corporate Media never asks: why are these problems being dumped on people in such a way as to foster anger against illegal immigrants?  Why not just stop the tide?  It’s easily enough done, regardless how the media and government both pretend they don’t have a clue.  So why is this manufactured event been engineered in this way?

Ray Comfort, What’s wrong with his gospel? – Comfort is one of those who has been raised up by the world as a “Christian.”  The question which many who delight in Comfort and side kick, Kirk Cameron (another media personality), never ask: Why would the world–which scripture tells us is the enemy of God–raise up a pair of Christians?  Why would the world exalt anyone whose mission is to promote God and Jesus?

The answer to both questions: the world would not.  And the world has not.

At this point, the standard answer by those who either don’t know their Bible or don’t believe it is “Oh, but God can do anything!

He surely can.  The question is always: what does His Word say?  Does His Word say He will raise up men of the world in the last days to help Christians?  No, His Word constantly reminds believers that “ravenous wolves, false prophets and false teachers” will dominate the end times Church scene.  Believers are constantly reminded not to be deceived.

And His Word never lies.  Which is why wolves, false prophets and false teachers have been raised up by the world to deceive pew-sitters–and have been wildly successful.  In spite of all of the warnings in God’s Word.  Instead of testing everything, holding to what is good; instead of believing the Bible, end times pew-sitters are constantly saying “Hath God said?

Or, as it is frequently spoken “Don’t you believe God can do anything?”

Water wars hit LA

Creating child sex robots is a terrible idea – Regardless what the headline says, this entire article is a thinly-veiled apologetic for pedophiles.  Blah blah blah pedophiles are born this way blah blah blah.  The same game plan that was used to legalize “homosexual marriage”–something even decadent societies like the Greeks and Romans at their very lowest might have found scandalous–is being trotted back out for making child sex legal.  That includes plenty of articles in the Corporate Media which pretend to be SHOCKED! but are really just PR puff pieces in favor of the practice.

The article tells the reader why child sex robots are a terrible idea BUT neglects to say that child sex is wrong.  In fact, in spite of the headline, the article spends a great deal of its space telling the reader why pedophiles are not all that bad.

MEDIA NARRATIVES ALERT

“How can the reader know when the Corporate Media is lying to him (never mind the fact that the media is Satan’s Mouthpiece and Satan is the father of lies)?  One easy way to tell is the use of “Why” and “How” in the headlines of an article.  When the reader sees “Why?” or “How?” in the headline–occasionally “What” is used–that which follows will be a fairy tale, a narrative, a bedtime story spun by the media for the benefit of the media’s master.”  “Why” usually denotes an on-going narrative; “How” signifies a story line which explains past events

FEAR of the LORD

“By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.”
–Proverbs 16:6

Watchmen on the Walls

"Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;"

watchman-wall-pd "Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

--Ezekiel 33:1-6

More important than pomp, popularity, riches or recognition: we will be guilty of no man's blood upon our hands.
