Struggling Against Salvation

The struggle continues...

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
–Matthew 7:13-14

The deceived struggle mightily against entering “at the straight (narrow) gate;” i.e., salvation–as any former heathen can attest.

The battle is fought daily: day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year.

The deceived struggle against eternal salvation because they are deceived.

IF the deceived were not deceived, they would embrace rather than fight against the truth of God’s Word and eternal salvation through belief in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“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:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

IF the deceived were not deceived, they would value life everlasting over eternal destruction and condemnation.

It seems such an odd statement: “The lost struggle against their own salvation.”  It is almost like saying “The hungry struggle against food,” or “The thirsty struggle against water.

In this struggle against eternal salvation, the world aids and abets the deceived.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1John 2:15-16

The world aids the lost in their conflict against salvation because the world’s friends are enemies of God.

“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.”
–James 4:4

Someone who is worldly might say that the friends of the world assist the lost in their struggle against eternal salvation because “Misery loves company.”

Daily, the lost and deceived continue their resistance.

The lost and deceived will continue their mighty struggle against God’s Word and eternal salvation through faith in Jesus Christ RIGHT UP UNTIL the moment they die.

AND THEN: they will struggle no more.

However, they will then have an eternity to regret their earlier laborious grind.

DOES the reader fight the battle against eternal salvation?

DOES the reader even realize how he ended up on the side he now fights for?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

Stumblingblock to Salvation

stumblingblock to salvation

(U.S. Army photo by Sgt. True Thao, 364th Press Camp Headquarters, Task Force Larimar)

ENSNARED BY THE LITTLE THINGS OF THE WORLD

stumblingblock: An obstacle; a difficulty.

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
–Matthew 7:14-15

Even if few are saved, more than few seem to have at least a passing interest in eternal salvation.

IN FACT, most who have expressed an interest (or a misplaced insistence) in eternal salvation through faith on Jesus Christ have to overcome a HUGE obstacle.

That stumblingblock is an inability or unwillingness (or both) to let go of the things of the world.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1John 2:15-16

This includes the “little things of the world“: those “guilty pleasures” which the world uses to endear itself to man.

The little things of the world act in a much more gradual way: a little here, a little there.

“To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.”
–Isaiah 28:12-13

To be perfectly clear: “things of the world” do not necessarily refer to ONLY material goods.

Letting go of the things of the world DOES refer to the love of material goods.

It ALSO refers to the ways of the world; the knowledge of the world; what the world considers important or holds dear; traditions, rituals and fables learned (and in some cases, loved) since childhood; the honors, exaltation and attention the world bestows upon its favorites.

Letting go of these things and basing one’s faith in the future on the Word of God and Jesus Christ is no doubt the biggest decision ANY person has to make.

But letting go of the things of the world is extremely hard–maybe even next to impossible.

Perhaps this is why so many wait until the last second to declare they want salvation through Jesus Christ: they cling to the pleasures and comfortable things of the world until such things are no longer available to them?

Letting go of the things of the world might be considered a  stumblingblock to salvation.

But letting go of the little things of the world might be considered a more insidious stumblingblock to salvation.

Christianity: The Ultimate in Delayed Gratification

delayed gratification

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

Most Americans want instant gratification.

“I want what I want and I want it NOW!”

America is the Land of Impulse Buying Opportunity, testified by the candy, gum, mints, cigarette lighters and trashy magazines which decorate check-outs everywhere in the Land of the Free.

The United States is the place where there is literally nothing which stands in the way between an American and whatever trifle he covets.

“No money? No problem!”

“90 days same as cash!”

“Take it home today! No payments for the next six months!”

Which makes Christianity–which is the ULTIMATE in delayed gratification–a poor fit for America.

The Christian foregoes the pleasures, appetites and quick fix rewards of this world for the much greater reward of the kingdom of heaven.

That makes Christianity a hard sell in a country which celebrates the latest impulse of the world.

Because the Christian’s reward cannot be seen, heard or held in one’s hands, most cannot understand the basic concept of waiting for a reward beyond this present sense-based world.

To the present, wicked world, such an idea is senseless.

But when fallen man takes the time to reflect, he intuitively grasps that there is something not quite right about instant gratification.

So, even the world knows that living by impulse is a loser.

“Don’t give up what you want most for what you want now.”
Richard G. Scott

The non-believer wonders, “I’m not hurting anybody. I’m just having a little fun! Why shouldn’t the pleasures, sin, sensations, appetites and lusts of the world be indulged?”

The believer KNOWS that the pleasures of this world are fleeting and temporary.

“Why not wait and enjoy eternity?”

Once more: Christianity is the ultimate in delayed gratification.

Which makes it a poor fit indeed for the those who live in a country which constantly chatters: “Don’t wait! Don’t delay! Have it, have it today, have it NOW!”

DOES the reader ever wonder, “Is this all there is?”

DOES the reader then forget about all of that to indulge his latest, greatest desire of the last 5 minutes?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven–and live!

Born Again Spiritually

Spirit

“For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.”
–1Corinthians 1:17

Someone (who was advocating that baptism is a necessary component of salvation through Jesus Christ) offered as “proof” what Jesus said in the opening verses of John 3, specifically John 3:5.

“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

“Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.”
–John 3:1-7

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

John 3:5 is most definitely NOT about baptism.

We can know this in several different ways.

1- Nowhere in John 3 do either Jesus or Nicodemus refer to the subject of baptism.

2- Jesus is explaining to Nicodemus about being born again.  Clearly, Nicodemus did not understand the concept.  Jesus tells him a man has to be born both PHYSICALLY and then born a second time SPIRITUALLY.  Jesus talks of being born of water (physical birth) and of the Spirit (spiritual rebirth). To emphasize the point, Jesus uses the water/Spirit reference and then, in order that there is NO confusion, Jesus offers the flesh/spirit reference as well.

Born again means to experience a spiritual rebirth through Jesus Christ, God the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Born again.

OR, as it is elsewhere referred to: a “transformation” OR to be “transformed.”

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
–Romans 12:2

Born again.

It is what distinguishes believers from pretenders.

Being born again spiritually is what determines if one is a member of the kingdom of heaven.  NOT how often, if or where one has been baptized–though baptism IS a necessary sign of the believer’s obedience.

Being reborn spiritually–NOT sitting in one of the Sunday social clubs known as the churches; NOT trying to make this world a better place; NOT constantly talking about homosexuals, atheists or satanists–is what determines whether one is a believer on Jesus Christ.

HAS the reader experience the transformation of a new spiritual birth through the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ?

OR does the reader choose to believe that that is so much nonsense?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Making Sense of the World Around You

That doesn't make any sense!

Most folks just accept the world/reality which is presented to them.

They do not think much about it.

They do not question it–at least very much or very strictly.

They certainly do not try–regardless of what some may claim otherwise–to make sense of it.

Most folks just accept the world presented to them, spending most of their mental energy instead on how to survive, adapt or thrive in that particular world.

“We accept the reality of the world with which we’re presented. It’s as simple as that”.
–Christoff, The Truman Show

Many, many, many are the times a situation, something one reads, a circumstance or the general story one is told of the “way things are” prompt the remark:

This doesn’t make any sense.”

MORE: That Doesn’t Make Any Sense: An Explanation

However, most continue on their way through their life, trying to forget what they tell themselves is yet one more anomaly, while adhering to that constantly-programmed advice of “Just move on with your life;” trying to force the square peg of what they know has happened into the round hole of what one has been programmed to believe.

This paradoxical situation was even the subject of a quote by Winston Churchill.

“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.”
Winston Churchill

It is little wonder that in the end times man almost universally worships the dragon (Satan).

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast…And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
–Revelation 13:4,8

When one chooses not to believe the truth, one will believe almost ANYTHING.

MORE: When Men Cease to Believe the Truth, They will Believe Anything

Satan is/will be presented as the logical object of worship, 666 will be presented as something the fashionably cool folks are into and “Hey!  A fellow has got to eat, doesn’t he?”

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
–Revelation 13:16-18

“Hey!  I’m busy!  Who has time to research all this stuff about some mark of the beast?”

“Besides, that’s from that old book, the Bible.  Who believes that?”

This is the world which currently is and which will be presented to end times man.

When one finds oneself thinking/saying “That doesn’t make any sense!” it means what one believes–and which one is trying to reconcile events which have happened–is a lie.

And end times man–having lived his life consciously ignoring the truth and trying to make sense out of a life which constantly contradicts his best efforts–will accept satanic devil worship and the mark of the beast as a natural thing.

Because end times man has spent his entire life preparing for this moment: pigeonholing the truth while hammering the square pegs of reality into the round holes of what he has told himself is real.

DOES the reader find himself increasingly saying “That doesn’t make any sense“?

DOES the reader ever question what he is told about the world around him?

OR does the reader make a weak attempt, then stop, telling himself something on the order of “That’s above my pay grade. Wonder what’s going on at Fortnite?”

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Pride of Life: The Acclaim of the World

applause: the acclaim of the world

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1John 2:15-16

1John 2:16 mentions the three “things that are in the world.”

These three things are the basis of all sin: the lust of the flesh (appetites); the lust of the eyes (coveting); and the pride of life.

The pride of life.

Another way of saying “pride of life” is “the attention or acclaim of the world.”

“I wanna be somebody!”

BEFORE one becomes a believer in Jesus Christ, what the world thinks–the acclaim of the world–is a fairly important concern.

How to grab the attention of the world is also something one thinks about.

AFTER one becomes a believer in Jesus Christ, one has the revelation that what the world thinks is NOT very important.

And so, the acclaim of the world becomes a very trivial matter; barely thought of at all and then, usually only in the context of 1John 2:15-16.

And this is one way the reader is able to tell the difference between a believer in Jesus Christ and a counterfeit: how concerned is that person with the pride of life?

MORE: Appealing to Man’s Pride, Vanity and Arrogance in Order to Control Him

MORE: PRIDE, AMERICA and SIN: A Proud People, A Proud Country

An example of this thinking is the concern the rich and celebrated show over how they will be remembered; over their “legacy.”

Many of the rich and celebrated elite spend a LOT of their time and money to ensure that they will be remembered.

They will not be.

“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”
–Isaiah 65:17

MORE: LEGACY: Legacies Are a Vanity

The acclaim of the world is one of those very temporary, very fickle things of the world.

It is not only fleeting: in the whole scheme of things, it is inconsequential.

IS the reader concerned with what the world thinks of him?

DOES the reader spend time or money in an effort to affect the opinion of the world about himself?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Incorruption

“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
–1Corinthians 15:50-57

The apostle Paul, while writing to the church at Corinth, used the 15th chapter of his Second Epistle to relay some very important information about the gathering together (popularly known in the churches as the “rapture“) of the saints immediately before Jesus Christ returns to earth.

Among the important information which Paul gave the Corinthians in only eight verses was the following.

  1. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;
  2. We shall not all sleep [physically die], but we shall all be changed;
  3. This takes place in an instant;
  4. This takes place “at the last trump;”
  5. The dead shall be raised incorruptible;
  6. Believers still living “will be changed;”
  7. The resulting immortality of believers shall “swallow up” death;
  8. The sting of death is sin;
  9. God gives victory to believers through Jesus Christ.

That’s a LOT of important information about an event which is much talked about in the churches–though the talk is mostly hearsay, gossip and tall tales passed down from the wolves in the pulpit and the wolves known as TV preachers.

One of the points Paul emphasized to the Corinthians was the idea that believers, both living and dead would be “changed.” This change involves the corruption that is inherent in a body of flesh and blood. The corruptible must be changed to incorruption before a believer can enter into the kingdom of God.

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

It is obvious from the context of what Paul has written that the apostle was referring to immortality and the fragile condition of a body made of flesh and blood (dirt) when he was writing of “corruptible.”

To reinforce his point, Paul then refers to “this mortal shall have to put on immortality.”

Believers MUST be changed–otherwise they could not see God.

As God told Moses in Exodus 33:20: “And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.”

So this body of dirt; this mortal body of flesh and blood HAS TO be changed into an incorruptible immortal body before believers can inherit the kingdom of God.

But “corruptible” has another meaning also.

Besides its obvious meaning of physical decay, it also can mean a spiritual condition.

So while Paul was telling the Corinthians their bodies would be PHYSICALLY upgraded before they entered God’s kingdom, he was also telling them the corruptible would be changed to incorruption spiritually.

This is necessary because no corruption (sin) will enter into God’s presence once he dwells with man.

Referring to the New Jerusalem (the home of both God and believers after the return of Jesus Christ), the apostle John wrote:

“And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”
–Revelation 21:27

SO, though Paul was referring to PHYSICAL corruption in his Second Letter to the Corinthians (and he makes this perfectly clear), he also was referring to believers changing their SPIRITUAL corruption as well.

DOES the reader believe he will be changed in one way or another at the end?

DOES the reader believe he has already undergone the new birth?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“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:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“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

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
