COUNTERFEIT HOLY SPIRIT: Lying Spirits of Deception in the Churches

COUNTERFEIT SPIRIT: There is one Holy Spirit. There are many lying and deceiving spirits, especially the spirit of antichrist.

COUNTERFEIT HOLY SPIRIT: There is one Holy Spirit. There are many lying and deceiving spirits, especially the spirit of antichrist.

 TRADING THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR MYSTICISM

COUNTERFEIT HOLY SPIRIT: The Bible commands believers to test every spirit. But many Christians want an experience very badly. Many sitting in American churches want to feel a “move of God” or a “move of the Spirit.” And so, because so many do not walk by faith but by sight, spirits of deception enter into the churches. What are a few of these spirits? Why are they so prevalent today?

FALSE SPIRITS HAVE INVADED THE AMERICAN CHURCH

LYING SPIRITS

SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST

SPIRITS OF DECEPTION

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
1 John 4:1


American Christians want to experience God by experiences.

Desiring the Holy Spirit–which the Bible says all believers have from the moment they are born again–many churches are reported to have contact with a spirit.

But is it the Holy Spirit?

There are many counterfeit spirits.  The Bible speaks of evil spirits, false spirits, lying spirits and a spirit of antichrist–among others.  Why are these spirits rushing into the churches?  There are several reasons.

Biblical Silence vs. Mystical Silence and What Really Went On at Passion 2012?

As they have for centuries, people who “feel far from God” continue to seek more “spiritual” experiences, and as such fall into dangerous, demonic deceptions. One such devilish device is the perversion of biblical prayer through the practice known in “Christian” circles as contemplative or centering prayer. As has been noted multiple times on this site, the practice of contemplative prayer has come into the evangelical world via the Roman Catholic Church, and it is no different than the meditation practiced by Eastern religions.

The Counterfeit Church and its Feel-Good Gospel

In churches across America, the awe and holiness of the Scriptures are fading fast. While countless “born again” believers still delight in His Word, share His love, and pray for each other, the vast majority of church members have chosen a more secular form of “worship.” Many feel free to interpret the Bible according to their own liking. Consequently, a widening gap is separating God’s timeless Truths from the world’s more culture-friendly adaptations.

As to the timing: it’s not coming, it’s here.  The whore Church of Revelation is already alive and well in America.  It is only consolidating its footholds and gathering its strength.  How much longer until it emerges as the woman riding the beast of Revelation 17:3-6?  Time will tell.

In the meantime, the lying spirits of the enemy are busy doing works of darkness.

A LYING SPIRIT

1 Kings and 2 Chronicles both tell the story of Ahab, a king to whom God sent a lying spirit

And the Lord said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner.And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the Lord, and said, I will persuade him.”

“And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.”
-1 Kings 22:20-23

Why did God use a lying spirit to deceive Ahab?

Ahab was again rejecting the clear warning from God, and choosing a path of wicked rebellion. In response to Ahab’s constant choice of sin, God revealed some of the inner workings of the spiritual world.

God had already pronounced a death sentence upon Ahab (1 Kings 20:42, 21:19), but had given him opportunity to repent of his wickedness. With this final rejection of God’s counsel, God determined to carry out the death sentence. Since Ahab continued to prefer the lies of his false prophets over the truth given by God’s prophets, God chose to use the false prophets to carry out His plan.

THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST

“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”
1 John 4:3

Spirit of Deception

Seducing spirits have been turned loose upon the world today. Many have been taken over by a spirit of deception in this hour.

I Timothy 4:1 “The Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirts, and doctrines of devils;” It’s happening now. We are in the last of the last days. Jesus is soon to come. The devil is seeking to deceive all that will yield to his lies.

 

COUNTERFEIT HOLY SPIRIT: Try every spirit. - 1 John 4:1

COUNTERFEIT HOLY SPIRIT: Try every spirit. – 1 John 4:1

Mysticism: A Counterfeit Holy Spirit

So – what is the true Holy Spirit and how does it function? All true Christians are indwelt with the Holy Spirit at the moment of conversion. When this happens, the Holy Spirit comes to live and dwell inside each newly born-again Christian until their time on this earth is over. The Holy Spirit has many functions, among them bringing conviction over sin and illuminating Scripture.

And yet, so many “Christians” hunger for a “move of God” or a “manifestation of the Spirit;” of experiencing what the Bible declares they already have: a presence of the Lord. We live in a time when experiences trump the Word of God.

Pew-sitters and pulpit-poachers are both searching for what the Bible clearly says they should already possess: the Holy Spirit.  But most appear willing to accept any spirit–and do.  Especially when that spirit brings excitement.

False religions do not have this indwelling of the Holy Spirit taking place within their adherents. So what’s a Devil to do? Well, he’ll just do what he’s always done, and rather successfully at that: create some kind of counterfeit experience to mimic a real blessing given by God to true Christians.

Could this hunger for a physical manifestation of the supernatural be brought on because so many who wear the Christian label are only playing a part? Could it be one of the by-products of a people used to walking by sight instead of faith?

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
2 Corinthians 5:7

If one is a sight-walker, one doesn’t need faith: one has experiences, signs, wonders, feelings and emotions.  Could the wholesale lack of discernment also be another sign that the Holy Spirit is absent from those who feel they are believers?

Sad but likely.

Counterfeit Presence of God

Many churches practice getting into a state of antichrist altered perception by chanting or singing the same verses over and over and over again.  This writer grew up next to a large community of Eastern mystics.  The Christian repetitions are little different from the Hindu ones  A mantra is a mantra; it matters little whether you use “Jesus” or another deity as the centering mechanism.

Jesus warned against this in Matthew 6:7  But who listens to the Bible anymore–especially when it contradicts what many “feel” is right?  We live in a season where “Christians” believe any practice/ritual they engage in is sanctified by their very participation in it.

If we do it, it must be right.” 

The end justifies the means.  If it works, do it.  If it feels good, do it.  And so, all too many do: convinced they’re worshiping the God of the Bible.  Instead, they give their praise and worship to an idol of their own construction.

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
Matthew 6:7

The author of Mysticism: A Counterfeit Holy Spirit reveals that this meditative state–where Christians are certain they’ve had a “God encounter” or a “move of God” or a “move of the Holy Spirit”–makes Jesus to be a liar.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
John 14:6

Who needs Jesus as the Way when they have just experienced “God” by their own devices? Counterfeit spirits will make it all about the worshipers; all about the experience.  The Holy Spirit will make it all about Jesus.

“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:”
John 15:26

When the Holy Spirit comes, it is to accomplish a particular purpose of God–not for the entertainment/experience/”look how spiritual we are” value.  When one believes one can manipulate the Holy Spirit into manifesting, who needs Jesus?

“Hey, let’s keep singing! I’ve already got goose bumps!”

“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”
2 Corinthians 11:14

What is Mysticism?

Of course Satan is at the heart of this deception being foisted on the Church.  But what of the ones leading the deception?

“Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
2 Corinthians 11:15

Is that being too harsh?  What if the church leaders are not aware they’ve been deceived?  Doesn’t that let them off the hook?  Doesn’t that let the poor people in the church escape blame?  Jesus had the answer.

“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
Matthew 15:14

It’s time has come.  The spirit of mysticism is the spirit that’s exalted in many American Christian churches today–not the Holy Spirit.

Of course, Christians were warned this time would come. A time when those who formerly were practicing Christians would leave for the more exciting experiences of a different, seducing spirit.

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;”
1 Timothy 4:1

“Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
Luke 18:8

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
1 John 4:1

And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Mark 13:5-6

[This material originally appeared in End Times Prophecy Headlines: April 25, 2014.]

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.

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:

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

Fear: What does the Bible say about Conquering Fear?

FEAR: Conquering fear - What does the Bible say about Fear?

FEAR: Conquering fear – What does the Bible say about Fear?

FEAR: What does the Bible Say?

 WHAT DOES THE WORLD SAY? 

CAN THE WORLD HELP OVERCOME FEAR AND DOUBT?

FEAR: USING GOD’S WORD TO OVERCOME FEAR

Fearverb, noun \ˈfir\

1 to be afraid of :  expect with alarm <fear the worst>

2 to be afraid or apprehensive <feared for their lives>

3 an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger


FEAR: In the times in which we live, danger seems to be growing and with it, fear.  Yet, for hundreds of years, Christian believers have successfully overcome fear through belief and faith in God’s Word.

Though the Corporate Media is engaged in stoking fear among the population, the Bible contains the words that lead to the relief of that fear.

In fact, those who have been persecuted, afflicted and even martyred have received comfort through their knowledge of God’s Word.

FEAR: WHAT THE WORLD SAYS

What the world has to say about fear is nonsense and has no power to deliver one from the spirit of fear.  Some examples follow.

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Franklin Roosevelt

“Always do what you are afraid to do.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The first duty of man is to conquer fear; he must get rid of it, he cannot act until then.”
Thomas Carlyle

“There are very few monsters who warrant the fear we have of them.”
Andre Gide

Feel better?

FEAR: WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

The Bible says that fear is a spirit and that it comes from the bondage of sin.

“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear;”
Romans 8:15

But there is no spirit more powerful than the Spirit of God: the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is with us forever – John 14:16

The Holy Spirit gets His authority from God – John 16:13

The Holy Spirit will teach you all things – John 14:26

The Holy Spirit will bring everything to your remembrance – John 14:26

When one becomes a believer, one is given the Spirit of God.  There is no spirit in heaven or earth that can withstand the Holy Spirit.

Two of the three most powerful Scriptures about overcoming fear concern the Holy Spirit.  Here are the three.

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
2 Timothy 1:7


TESTIMONY

2 Timothy 1:7 has always been a particular comfort when doubt begins to whisper in my ear.  Becoming a believer forced turmoil to flee.


When one has the perfect love of God; when one is right with God: fear is powerless.

 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”
1 John 4:18

“Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.”
Isaiah 54:4

GOD’S PROMISES CONCERNING FEAR

FEAR: Overcoming fear through God Word.

FEAR: Overcoming fear through God Word.

The Bible has literally HUNDREDS of promises God has made to believers about fear and doubt.  NOTE: These promises are to believers.  While the thoughts these verse convey are soothing to all, the reality, the promises are to those who place their trust in Jesus Christ alone for eternal salvation.


TESTIMONY

This is exactly how this writer got saved over three years ago. Throughout my life, I never actually became acquainted with fear. Then in 2010–though my life was going great–I experienced several months of turmoil. Searching for answers early one morning (or late one night), I stumbled across a website which asked “Do you know if you are going to Heaven?” I didn’t. I read the pages and then forgot about it all.

But when I went to sleep, I fell asleep quickly and slept the rest of the night. That was new. Then, as peace took hold, fear left.

Now, completely 100% free of fear, I trust on the promises of God completely and absolutely.


Here are a few of those promises.

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
Isaiah 41:10

There is nothing in heaven or on earth or under the earth that comes close to the strength of the Lord of Hosts.  If God is upholding someone, they will stand firm and have nothing to fear from any entity.

“And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?”
Luke 12:22-24

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.”
Isaiah 54:17

“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
Deuteronomy 31:6

Jesus Himself spoke about the only One whom humans should fear: God Almighty.

“And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”
Luke 12:4-5

“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”
Isaiah 43:2

Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.
Luke 12:6-9

“For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.”
Isaiah 41:13

One of the Bible’s most famous events concerning fear is found in 2 Kings 6.  It concerns the prophet Elisha, who was accompanied by his servant, and the King of Syria, who was out to destroy Elisha.

Elisha and his servant were staying in the town of Dothan.  The king of Syria found out and sent an army to kill Elisha.

“Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about.

And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?

And he [Elisha] answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.

And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the Lord, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.”
2 Kings 6:13-18

The complete story is in 2 Kings 6, but God had sent an army of angels to surround and protect Elisha and his servant.

Are you searching for peace of mind?

Get the peace which “passeth all understanding.”

PSALMS FOR CONQUERING FEAR

FEAR: Overcoming fear.  What does the Bible say?

FEAR: Overcoming fear. What does the Bible say?

The book of Psalms has an unusual amount of Scripture concerning fear. David wrote many of the Psalms. In fact, David wrote a number of Psalms when he was alone, hunted and in fear for his life.


TESTIMONY

A friend of this writer–who is not a believer and who belongs to a cult–has stated more than once: “I always read Psalms to comfort me.” 

It is this writer’s experience that when doubt and fear begin to gnaw at one’s mind, reading Psalms out loud can have an incredibly calming effect.


NOTE: Reading Psalms do not have a calming effect because of any magical power in and of themselves. They have a calming effect because they reassure the believer that God is with him and will never forsake him. Psalms are praises to God. When the believer is praising God, the spirit of fear must flee for God Himself inhabits the praises of believers.

“But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”Psalm 22:3

PSALMS CONCERNING FEAR

Let’s start with perhaps the most famous Psalm concerning fear.

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”
Psalm 23:4

The following verses from Psalms specifically deal with overcoming fear or dread.

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
Psalm 27:1

“What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.”
Psalm 56:3

“In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.”
Psalm 56:4

“The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?”
Psalm 118:6

“I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”
Psalm 34:4

Lastly are three particular Psalms which concern the overcoming of fear. these three Psalms have comforted believers for centuries. They have a particularly calming effect due to their strong promises from God and the faith of the Psalmist in those promises.

PSALM 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

PSALM 91

Some modern believers have memorized Psalm 91 due to the great number of promises to protect believers from physical harm. Some have even speculated that the Psalm protects against zombies (?!?) due to the imagery used in verse 6.

Regardless, Psalm 91 is a powerful antidote to fear.

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Lastly, Psalm 18, cried out by David, spoken of  in 2 Samuel 22.

Psalm 18

I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.

The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.

There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.

10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.

11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.

14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.

17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay.

19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

20 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.

21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

22 For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.

23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.

24 Therefore hath the Lord recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.

25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;

26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.

27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.

28 For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

31 For who is God save the Lord? or who is a rock save our God?

32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

33 He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places.

34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.

37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.

38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.

41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the Lord, but he answered them not.

42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.

44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.

45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.

46 The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

47 It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.

48 He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.

49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.

50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.

FEAR: CONCLUSION

The Bible is a powerful antidote to fear.

Faith in God and belief in His everlasting promises will conquer fear in all true believers.  Faith is what enabled the martyrs to go cheerfully to their deaths with songs of praise and thanksgiving.

The words most commonly associated with affliction and persecution in the Bible are “glory” and “rejoicing.”

Persecution, Tribulation, Troubles, Trials: What the Bible Says to Christians

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

The Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ

THE GOSPEL of Jesus Christ

THE GOSPEL of Jesus Christ

THE GOSPEL:

WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?

WHAT THE BIBLE TELLS US ABOUT THE GOSPEL

“AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD, AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE.”
Mark 16:15

The gospel literally means “good news.”

There is no good news without Christ dying and being the “ the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes” (Rom 10:4).

Believers are to “go” and “preach the gospel to every creature.”

This is a commandment. Do not take it lightly.

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men;”
2 Corinthians 5:10-11a

WHAT THE GOSPEL IS NOT

“The Gospel is not a call to repentance, or to amendment of our ways, to make restitution for past sins, or to promise to do better in the future. These things are proper in their place, but they do not constitute the Gospel; for the Gospel is not good advice to be obeyed, it is good news to be believed. Do not make the mistake then of thinking that the Gospel is a call to duty or a call to reformation, a call to better your condition, to behave yourself in a more perfect way than you have been doing in the past.

Nor is the Gospel a demand that you give up the world, that you give up your sins, that you break off bad habits, and try to cultivate good ones. You may do all these things, and yet never believe the Gospel and consequently never be saved at all.”
Harry A. Ironside, What is the Gospel?

The gospel is mentioned 99 times in the New Testament: 17 times by Matthew, Mark and Luke; 6 times in Acts; 4 times by Peter and once by John (Revelation).

Of all of the New Testament writers, Paul uses the word “gospel” the most: 13 times in Romans; 9 times in each of his two epistles to the Corinthians; 11 times to the Galatians; 4 times to the Ephesians; 8 times to the Philippians; 2 times to the Colossians; 8 times total in his two epistles to the Thessalonians; 4 times in his two epistles to Timothy; once in Philemon and twice in Hebrews.

For a total of 71 times by Paul.

WHAT IS THE GOSPEL MESSAGE?

“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

In this passage, we see three essential elements of the gospel message. First, the phrase “died for our sins” is very important. As Romans 3:23 tells us, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
[…]
Second, the person and work of Christ are indispensable components of the gospel. Jesus is both God (Colossians 2:9) and man (John 1:14).
[…]
Third, the resurrection of Christ is an essential element of the gospel. The resurrection is the proof of the power of God.
What are the Essentials of the Gospel message?

The Bible says that we are all sinners (Rom. 3:23). This means that we have all offended God. We have all broken His law. Therefore, we are guilty of having sinned. Because of this, we are separated from God (Isaiah 59:2), are dead in our sins (Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:3), cannot please God (Rom. 3:10-11), and will suffer damnation (2 Thess. 1:9). The only way to escape this judgment is by receiving Christ, by trusting in what Jesus did on the cross (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Pet. 2:24).

1 Corinthians 9:14

“For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.”
1 Corinthians 9:16-18

For though I preach the Gospel, I have nothing to glory of
The sense is not, that if he preached the Gospel in order for a livelihood, and to serve his private advantage, he should have no room for glorying; since, if this was the case, he should be obliged to do it, or perish for want: but his meaning is, that though he preached the Gospel ever so well, or ever so freely, and might glory before men, and against the false teachers, who insulted him in his character and office; yet not before God, from whom he received all his gifts, abilities, and qualifications, to preach the Gospel; all his light and knowledge in it; all his enlargements in meditation, and liberty in expression; all his faithfulness and integrity, courage and intrepidity, in the discharge and performance of his work, were by divine grace and assistance; and his success in it owing to the power and Spirit of God, so that he had nothing to glory of on any of these accounts: hence these words are a correction, or rather an explanation of the preceding:

for necessity is laid upon me;
not of getting a livelihood by preaching, for he could have got, and did get this another way, even by labouring with his hands; nor of force and compulsion, for no one more readily engaged in it, or more cheerfully performed it; but of obligation from the divine call to this work, and from his own conscience, in which he knew it to be an heavenly one, and from the nature of the trust committed to him, and because of the good of immortal souls, and the honour of Christ; all which lay with weight upon him, and obliged him in duty, love, and gratitude, to attend to it:

yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the Gospel;
which is to be understood, not of any temporal affliction, as reproach, persecution, famine, nakedness, sword for such sort of woes frequently attend those that do preach the Gospel; but of the wounding of his conscience, and exposing himself, through the neglect of his calling, and contempt of the divine will, to the wrath and curse of God for ever; not that the apostle feared this would be his case, or that it possibly could be; but he thus speaks, to show what he or any other minister of the Gospel would deserve, at the hand of God, who having abilities to preach, should not make use of them; or should preach, but not the Gospel; or only a part of it, and not the whole; or should entirely desist from it, through self-interest, or the fear of man, or through being ashamed of Christ and his Gospel, or as not able to bear the reproach and persecution attending it.

For if I do this thing willingly
That is, not freely and without receiving anything for preaching, without seeking any temporal profits and advantages; nor in pure love to Christ, and the good of souls, without any fear of punishment, or hope of reward; but the apostle supposes a case which was not, and his sense is, that supposing no necessity had been laid upon him, or any injunction or command given him to preach the Gospel, but he had entered on it without any obligation upon him, then, says he,

I have a reward;
or should have one, or might expect one; so the Jews F17 say, that a reward is given to him, who does anything unbidden:

but if against my will,
or unwillingly,

a dispensation of the Gospel is committed to me;
which was his case; the Gospel was committed to his trust, as anything is to the trust and charge of a steward by his lord, who is obliged to take care of it, and is accountable for it, and of whom faithfulness is required; he did not undertake this economy, or dispensation of the Gospel of himself, of his own mind and will, but it was enjoined him by one that had the command over him, and could and did oblige him to take the charge of it; though he made him willing, as well as able to do it: and therefore since this was the case, that it was not at his own option whether he would preach the Gospel or not, but he was obliged to it by one, that had a superior power and influence over him; hence, though he performed it ever so well, and with never so much faithfulness and integrity, he asks in the following verse,

What is my reward then?
&c.] None at all, I have none to expect, hope for, or claim, in a way of debt; I am a servant intrusted by my Lord with the Gospel, and an unprofitable one I am; I do, at most and best, but what is my duty, and for that I can claim no reward: all the reward that remains is only this,

verily, that when I preach the Gospel,
which I am obliged to do,

I may make the Gospel of Christ without charge;
to them that hear it, as he did to the Corinthians, which was his glorying in ( 1 Corinthians 9:15 ) and is the same with his reward here; for this means not any reward from God, but his glorying among men, and against the false teachers; that when he preached the word at Corinth, he was not chargeable to any, nor would he ever be: his reason for it is,

that I abuse not my power in the Gospel;
his right of having a maintenance, whilst he was preaching the Gospel; to have made use of which would have been an abuse of it, since it would have given occasion to the false apostles to reproach and calumniate, and might have been an hinderance to the Gospel of Christ, and a stumbling to some weak minds.
Gill’s Exposition of the Bible

“And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.”
–1 Corinthians 9:23

And this I do for the Gospel’s sake
The Alexandrian copy and some others read, “all things I do” and so the Vulgate Latin and Ethiopic versions; that is, he became all things to all men, and so and so to different persons; not for his own sake, for his own temporal advantage, or to curry favour with men; not for the sake of gaining wealth, or honour and applause to himself, but for the spread of the Gospel, and its greater usefulness among men: to which he adds,

that I might be partaker thereof with you;
meaning either the fruit of the Gospel, the conversion and salvation of sinners, which would be matter of joy both to him and them; or the blessings of grace and eternal life, which the Gospel reveals and promises, which he desired to enjoy in common with others, not only with the Corinthians, for the word “you” is not in the original text, but with Jews and Gentiles; with men of all sorts, who may be gained over to Christ, and saved by him, through the ministry of the word.

Once received, the believer can stand in the gospel.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;”
1 Corinthians 15:1

The lost have their minds blinded to the gospel.

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
2 Corinthians 4:3-4

“And we have sent with him the brother, whose praise is in the gospel throughout all the churches;”
2 Corinthians 8:8

2 Corinthians 8:18. the brother, whose praise is in the gospel–whose praise is known in connection with the Gospel: Luke may be meant; not that “the Gospel” here refers to his written Gospel; but the language implies some one well known throughout the churches, and at that time with Paul, as Luke then was ( Acts 20:6 ). Not a Macedonian, as appears from 2 Corinthians 9:4 . Of all Paul’s “companions in travel” ( 2 Corinthians 8:19 , Acts 19:29 ), Luke was the most prominent, having been his companion in preaching the Gospel at his first entrance into Europe ( Acts 16:10 ). The fact that the person here referred to was “chosen of the churches” as their trustee to travel with Paul in conveying the contribution to Jerusalem, implies that he had resided among them some time before: this is true of Luke, who after parting from Paul at Philippi (as he marks by the change from “we” to “they,” Acts 16:11 ) six years before, is now again found in his company in Macedonia. In the interim he had probably become so well known that “his praise was throughout all the churches.” Compare 2 Corinthians 12:18 , 1:24 . He who is faithful in the Gospel will be faithful also in matters of inferior importance [BENGEL].
Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible; Robert Jamieson,
A. R. Fausset and David Brown. 1871

Men who honestly profess and submit to the gospel will honor Christ in deeds as well as words.

“Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men;”
2 Corinthians 9:13

“For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ:”
2 Corinthians 10:14

2 Corinthians 10:14. “We are not stretching ourselves beyond our measure, as (we should be) if we did not reach unto you: (but we do), for as far as even to you have we come in preaching the Gospel.”
Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible; Robert Jamieson, A. R. Fausset and David Brown. 1871

“To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man’s line of things made ready to our hand.”
2 Corinthians 10:16

2 Corinthians 10:16. To–that is, so as to preach . . . beyond you (and) not to boast, &c.
in another man’s line of things made ready to our hand–Do not connect “line of things,” &c.; but “boast of things,” &c. To make this clearer, arrange the words thus, “Not to boast as to things (already made by the preaching of others) ready to our hand in another man’s line (that is, within the line, or sphere of labor, apportioned by God to another).”
—-Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible; Robert Jamieson, A. R. Fausset and David Brown. 1871

Men will listen to another gospel.

“For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him”
2 Corinthians 11:4

“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:”
Galatians 1:6

False teachers will pervert the gospel of Jesus Christ.

“Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.”
Galatians 1:7

What happens to those who preach another gospel?

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”
Galatians 1:8-9

Paul’s gospel was not given to him by man.

“But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.”
Galatians 1:11

The gospel is the word of truth.

“To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.”
Galatians 2:5

The gospel was preached to the Jew and to the Gentile.

“But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;”
Galatians 2:7

One can receive the truth of the gospel and yet not live by it.

“But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?”
Galatians 2:14

The gospel has always been about faith, whether one lived in Old Testament times or in the New Testament era.

“And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.”
Galatians 3:8

After hearing the true word of the gospel and being saved through faith, the believer is sealed as one of Christ’s own by the Holy Spirit.

“In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,”
Ephesians 1:13

The Gentiles become members of the body of Christ and heirs to the promises of God by the gospel.

“That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:”
Ephesians 3:6

The gospel is part of the whole armor of God.

“And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;”
Ephesians 6:16

Paul wanted strength to preach the gospel while in prison in Rome.

“And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,”
Ephesians 6:19

Fellowship may be found in the gospel.

“For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;”
Philippians 1:5

The Philippians shared the defense of the gospel with Paul even though he was in Rome and they were hundreds of miles away in Philippi.

“Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.”
Philippians 1:7

Though to the casual observer, being in a Roman prison might appear to be a calamity, to Paul, it provided opportunities to share the gospel.

“But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;”
Philippians 1:12

We see here the care the apostle takes to prevent their being offended at his sufferings. He was now a prisoner at Rome; this might be a stumbling-block to those who had received the gospel by his ministry. They might be tempted to think, If this doctrine were indeed of God, God would not suffer one who was so active and instrumental in preaching and propagating it to be thrown by as a despised broken vessel. They might be shy of owning this doctrine, lest they should be involved in the same trouble themselves. Now to take off the offence of the cross, he expounds this dark and hard chapter of his sufferings, and makes it very easy and intelligible, and reconcilable to the wisdom and goodness of God who employed him.I. He suffered by the sworn enemies of the gospel, who laid him in prison, and aimed at taking away his life; but they should not be stumbled at this, for good was brought out of it, and it tended to the furtherance of the gospel

(v. 12): The things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel. A strange chemistry of Providence this, to extract so great a good as the enlargement of the gospel out of so great an evil as the confinement of the apostle. “I suffer trouble as an evil-doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound, 2 Tim. 2:9 . They cannot imprison the word of God; that has its free course, though I am confined.’’ But how was this?1. It alarmed those who were without.
Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible (Complete) Philippians 1

Paul was unashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

“But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.”
–Philippians 1:17

Some also of good will, and love: from sincere affection to the gospel, that the work might not stand while the workman was laid up.—Knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel. They knew that he was appointed to support and propagate the gospel in the world, against all the violence and opposition of its enemies, and were afraid lest the gospel should suffer by his confinement. This made them the more bold to preach the word and supply his lack of service to the church.III. It is very affecting to see how easy he was in the midst of all:
Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible (Complete) Philippians 1

Walk in the gospel.

“Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;”
Philippians 1:27

Verse 27.  Only let your conversation. The word conversation we now apply almost exclusively to oral discourse, or to talking. But it was not formerly confined to that, and is never so used in the Scriptures. It means conduct in general–including, of course, our manner of speaking, but not limited to that–and should be so understood in every place where it occurs in the Bible. The original word here used politeuw-politeuo, means, properly, to administer the State; to live as a citizen; to conduct one’s self according to the laws and customs of a State. See Ac 23:1. Comp. examples in Wetstein. It would not be improperly rendered, “let your conduct, as a citizen, be as becomes the gospel;” and might without impropriety, though not exclusively, be referred to our deportment as members of a community, or citizens of a State. It undoubtedly implies that, as citizens, we should act, in all the duties which that relation involves–in maintaining the laws, in submission to authority, in the choice of rulers, etc., as well as in other relations –on the principles of the gospel; for the believer is bound to perform every duty on Christian principles. But the direction here should not be confined to that. It doubtless includes our conduct in all relations in life, and refers to our deportment in general; not merely as citizens of the State, but as members of the church, and in all other relations. In our manner of speech, our plans of living, our dealings with others, our conduct and walk in the church and out of it–all should be done as becomes the gospel. The direction, therefore, in this place, is to be understood of everything pertaining to conduct.

As it becometh the Gospel of Christ.

(1.) The rules of the gospel are to be applied to all our conduct–to our conversation, business transactions, modes of dress, style of living, entertainments, etc. There is nothing which we do, or say, or purpose, that is to be excepted from those rules.

(2.) There is a way of living which is appropriate to the gospel, or which is such as the gospel requires. There is something which the gospel would secure as its proper fruits in all our conduct, and by which our lives should be regulated. It would distinguish us from the gay, and from those who seek honour and wealth as their supreme object. If all Christians were under the influence of the gospel, there would be something in their dress, temper, conversation, and aims, which would distinguish them from others. The gospel is not a thing of naught; nor is it intended that it should exert no influence on its friends.

(3.) It is very important that Christians should frame their lives by the rules of the gospel, and, to this end, should study them, and know what they are. This is important,

(a.) because they are the best and wisest of all rules;

(b.) because it is only in this way that Christians can do good;

(c.) because they have solemnly covenanted with the Lord to take his laws as their guide;

(d.) because it is only in this way that they can enjoy religion; and

(e.) because it is only by this that they can have peace on a dying bed. If men live as “becometh the gospel,” they live well. Their lives are honest and honourable; they are men of truth and uprightness; they will have no sources of regret when they die, and they will not give occasion to their friends to hang their heads with shame in the remembrance of them. No man on a dying bed ever yet regretted that he had framed his life by the rules of the gospel, or felt that his conduct had been conformed too much to it.

That whether I come and see you. Alluding to the possibility that he might be released, and be permitted to visit them again.

Or else be absent. Either at Rome, still confined, or released, and permitted to go abroad. I may hear of your affairs, etc. I may hear always respecting you that you are united, and that you are vigorously striving to promote the interests of the gospel.

–Albert Barnes, Notes on the New Testament, Philippians Chapter 1, Verse 27

Timothy faithfully assisted Paul in preaching and living the gospel.

“But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel.”
Philippians 2:22

Women laboured with Paul to further the gospel of Christ.

“But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel.”
Philippians 4:3

The Philippians were unique in supporting Paul’s gospel work.

“Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.”
Philippians 4:15

“If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;”
Colossians 1:23

If ye continue in the faith
In the doctrine of faith which they had received and embraced; and in the grace of faith, and the exercise of it which was implanted in them; and in the profession of faith which they had made: not that the virtue and efficacy of Christ’s blood, sufferings, and death, and reconciliation of their persons to God thereby, depended upon their faith, and abiding in it; but that faith and continuance in it were necessary means of their presentation in unblemished holiness and righteousness; for if they had not faith, or did not abide in it or if the good work of grace was not wrought upon their souls, and that performed until the day of Christ, they could not be presented holy and blameless: this shows the necessity of the saints’ final perseverance in faith and holiness, and is mentioned with this view, to put them upon a concern about it, and to make use of all means, under divine grace, to enjoy it; and nothing could more strongly incline and move unto it, than the blessed effect of Christ’s death, reconciliation and the end of it, to present the reconciled ones blameless; in order to which it is necessary they should hold on and out to the end: hence the Ethiopic version reads the words, not as a condition, but as an exhortation enforced by what goes before; “therefore be ye established in the faith”: it follows,

grounded and settled;
not on the sandy foundation of man’s own righteousness, and peace made by his own performances; but upon the foundation and rock, Christ, against which the gates of hell cannot prevail; and so shall never finally and totally fall away, being rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith of him, in the doctrines of faith, respecting peace by his blood, justification by his righteousness, and life by his death; and so continue steadfast and immovable, always abounding in his work:

and [be] not moved away from the hope of the Gospel;
the hope of eternal life and happiness, which as set before us in the Gospel; which that gives a good and solid ground and foundation of, in the person, blood, and righteousness of Christ; and is the instrumental means, in the hand of the Spirit, of begetting to it, and of encouraging and increasing it: the law gives no hopes of eternal life to a poor sinner; it works wrath, and ministers death; there is nothing but a fearful looking for of judgment by it; but the Gospel encourages to hope in the Lord, from the consideration of rich mercy and plenteous redemption in him; and this hope of the Gospel is an anchor of the soul, sure and steadfast, and not to be let go; this confidence and rejoicing of the hope is to be kept firm unto the end:

which ye have heard;
that is, which Gospel they had heard from Epaphras their faithful minister, and that not only externally, but internally; they had heard it and believed it, and it had brought forth fruit in them; for it came to them not in word only, but in power; which is said in commendation of it, and to engage them to continue in it, and abide by it; as is also what follows:

[and] which was preached to every creature which is under heaven;
and therefore since it was the same which was everywhere preached, they might depend upon the truth of it, should have the greater value for it, and by no means relinquish it. This must be understood not of every individual creature, even human and rational, that was then, or had been in, the world; but that it had been, and was preached far and near, in all places all over the world, to the Gentiles as well as to the Jews; who are sometimes styled “every creature”, “the creature”, “the whole creation”, “all men” see ( Mark 16:15 ) ( Romans 8:19-22 ) ( Titus 2:11 ) ; and of this, the first preaching of the Gospel by Peter after our Lord’s resurrection, was an emblem and pledge, ( Acts 2:14-36 ) ; and some time after that, the sound of all the apostles went into all the earth, and their words to the end of the world:

whereof I Paul am made a minister;
by Jesus Christ, who appeared unto him, and called, qualified, and sent him forth as such; and this is mentioned to encourage the Colossians to abide by the truths of the Gospel, since what they had heard and received were what were everywhere preached by the faithful ministers of the word; and particularly by the apostle, who was ordained to be a teacher and preacher of it to the Gentiles. The Alexandrian copy reads, “a preacher and an apostle, and a minister”; see ( 1 Timothy 2:7 ) .
John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible, Colossians Chapter 1 Verse 23

The gospel is not empty words which are spoken and heard. The gospel has the power of salvation.

“For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.”
1 Thessalonians 1:5

Paul preached the gospel amidst much opposition.

“But even after that we had suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention.”
1 Thessalonians 2:2

God entrusted Paul to preach the gospel and Paul, realizing the great privilege he had been granted, pursued it diligently with truth–regardless of whether he was applauded or stoned.

“But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts”
1 Thessalonians 2:4

“According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.”
1 Timothy 1:11

Paul not only preached the gospel to the Thessalonians, he was willing to lay down his life for them.

“So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us.”
1 Thessalonians 2:8

Paul did not make merchandise of the gospel, but supported himself while doing it.

“For ye remember, brethren, our labour and travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.”
1 Thessalonians 2:9

Timothy labored alongside Paul in the work of furthering the gospel.

“And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellowlabourer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith:”
1 Thessalonians 3:2

There will be a day of reckoning for those who disobey the gospel.

“In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: ”
2 Thessalonians 1:8

The gospel is the means of salvation; of partaking of the glory that is Jesus Christ, our Savior.

“Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
2 Thessalonians 2:14

When believers suffer affliction for the gospel’s sake, God will strengthen them in their time of trial.

“Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;”
2 Timothy 1:8

Eternal life is found through the gospel of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

“But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:”
2 Timothy 1:10

Part of the gospel message is that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead.

“Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:”
2 Timothy 2:8

Paul suffered imprisonment for the sake of the gospel.

“Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:”
Philemon 1:13

Without faith, the gospel message is unprofitable.

“For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.”
Hebrews 4:2

Man enters into the promise of rest by belief in the gospel.

“Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:” {it was: or, the gospel was}
Hebrews 4:6


Saint Peter preaching the Gospel in the Catacombs

The angels are very interested in the gospel.

“Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.”
1 Peter 1:12

The gospel is preached to the spiritually dead; all who hear it will one day be judged by how they respond to it.

“For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.”
1 Peter 4:6

All must be judged, both those in the house of God and those who do not obey the gospel.

“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?”
1 Peter 4:17

The gospel is eternal.

“But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.”
1 Peter 1:25

“And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,”
Revelation 14:6

Want to be set free?

Not saved? Not sure?

The gospel of Christ has the power to save you!

“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)

Peace: Find The Peace which Passeth All Understanding

PEACE: Get the peace that "passeth all understanding.

PEACE: Get the peace that “passeth all understanding.

How Does One Find Real Peace?

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:7

Humans are on a never-ending search for peace of mind.

But so many times, they look in the wrong places.  Some chase after the false promise of peace through psychiatry and psychology (Searching for Peace of Mind).

In their search for peace of mind, many Americans have placed their faith in drugs–both illicit and over-the-counter (Why are antidepressants the most prescribed drug in the US?).

Some have turned to New Age, cults, Wicca, demonology and other forms of occult  “alternate spirituality” in an attempt to stifle their stress and fear  (Why was there an explosion of interest in Magick in 1984?).

Even captains of industry are rummaging in the pit of the occult in their pursuit of peace of mind (When CEOs Embrace the Occult).

Where is true peace of mind to be found?

Christians know that answers are to be found in the Bible–and the Bible points them to our Savior, Jesus Christ. In fact, one of Jesus’ titles is the “Prince of Peace.”

At the same time, unbelievers–entrapped in the world’s deception–reject the one source of comfort that could help them find peace of mind.  Jesus promised:

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
John 14:27

When one has peace, there is no room for fear.  When one has the perfect love of Christ, fear has to flee.  This is another promise.

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”
1 John 4:18

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
2 Timothy 1:7

To walk daily in Christ, led by the Spirit, is to walk in peace–for one of the fruits of the Spirit is peace [Galatians 5:22].

” For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
Romans 8:6

God’s Word offers comforting promises to all who place their trust and faith in God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

“The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.”
Psalm 29:11

Finally, there are the words of Jesus Himself, giving to believers what is perhaps the grandest promise of peace.

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33

Hallelujah!

As this fallen world slips further into chaos, turn to the One who can provide the only true measure of peace of mind: Jesus Christ.

End Times Trials, Troubles, Tribulations, Disasters: Put Your Trust in Jesus

Persecution, Tribulation, Troubles, Trials: What the Bible Says to Christians

As the world waxes worse and worse, humanity’s relentless search for peace of mind will grow ever more intense.

Unfortunately, many are deceived and will reject their one hope amidst the troubles to come.  Don’t hesitate and don’t wait.

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to earth, was crucified, died and rose again to give humanity hope against sin–and to provide a peace that surpasses all human understanding.

Conquer your fear, doubt and distress.  Place your trust in Jesus Christ and start receiving the benefits of peace of mind “through Christ Jesus.”

Begin right now:  Place your trust in Jesus.

Not saved?  Not sure?

The gospel of Christ has the power to save you!

“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:”

Do You Know Jesus? Eternal Salvation through Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ: Lunatic, liar or Lord?

Jesus Christ: Lunatic, liar or Lord?

Do You Know Jesus?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”
–John 3:16-21

Do you know Jesus?

You can!  Right now!

You can put your trust for eternal salvation in Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God.

Hard times are coming.  Times in which no amount of physical preparation will be able to save you.  Do you know Jesus?

End Time Trials, Tribulation, Trouble and Disasters: Put Your Trust in Jesus

Every man, every woman will make a choice.

Who will You serve: The Kingdom of God or the kingdom of this World?

There are only two choices.  There is no purgatory.  That is not in the Bible.

Heaven or Hell: If you Die Today, Where Will You Wake Up?

Some have claimed that “A loving God would never send anyone to hell.”  They are right: God does not send anyone to hell.  People choose, of their own free will, where they will spend eternity.

Heaven or Hell: Which Will You Choose?

Don’t delay.  Make your calling and election sure: choose eternal life.  Place your trust, not on man or man’s schemes of salvation, but on the King of Kings and Lord of Lords: Jesus Christ.

Do You Know if You are Going to Heaven? Be Sure!

Not saved?

The gospel of Christ has the power to save you!

“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

Satan: Humans Have An Enemy; Christians Too

SATAN

Devil, Serpent, Dragon, God of this world, Prince of the power of the Air, Accuser, Adversary, Angel of Light, Enemy, Abaddon, Apollyon and many more in the Bible.
Names of Satan

Gustave Doré, Depiction of Satan, the antagoni...
Gustave Doré, Depiction of Satan, the antagonist of John Milton’s Paradise Lost c. 1866 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

SATAN: Murderer, Liar, Killer, Thief, Destroyer

“Ye 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 speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
–John 8:44

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
–John 10:10

Christians have an enemy. Actually, all humanity has an enemy.

In John 8:44, Jesus called Satan “the devil.” In John 10:10, Jesus called him “the thief.”  Satan goes by many names.

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

Christians know him by the name of Satan–which is Hebrew for “adversary or the opponent”–and he has many tricks, traps and snares to entangle humans in the cares and pleasures of this present world.

“Casual Christian”  is just another way of saying “someone ensnared by the world.”  And Satan, the one doing the ensnaring,  is called the “prince of this world” or the “god of this world.”

“Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”
–John 12:31

“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
–2 Corinthians 4:4

But many Christians don’t really believe in Satan–just as they don’t really believe in hell. And once Christians start down the path of unbelief, it soon leads to the wide road of destruction.

” 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:”
–Matthew 7:13

From You may never look at movies the same again.

The majority of these men called themselves “Christians” even as they walked about in disastrous situations, but I think even the casual observer would have a hard time distinguishing between the casual “christian” and the world.

Many of us (I know of a few), much like those in AA, came to a point where we decided that what we were doing was not working, and that we had unsuccessfully tried to wrestle control away from God, deciding that we and the broken world around us knew better about how to handle the devastation around us. Most do not even realize that they are in a spiritual battle for their very lives because religion succumbed to outside pressure and sanitized what we have been taught, avoiding the idea that there is an enemy (his name is Satan), and that he is out to kill you. In a sense we had to take a realistic, moral inventory, give the control back to God, come to an understanding that we are in a 24/7 spiritual battle, and realize that our only hope is on our knees before God in prayer fighting for our minds, our families and those around us.

Here is the problem that many modern Christians–particularly American Christians–face. Especially, casual Christians.

If you don’t know you have an enemy, you can’t defend yourself. And make no mistake about it, Satan is humanity’s enemy.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
–1 Peter 5:8

Again: if you have your head in the ground and don’t see an enemy, you can’t defend yourself. It’s hard to find a solution if you are unaware you have a problem.

SATAN, SIN: THE PROBLEM.  WHAT’S THE SOLUTION?

Satan is the enemy.  Sin is the problem.  What’s the solution?

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”–John 8:12

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”–John 14:6

“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”–John 6:35

“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”–John 20:31

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” –Romans 6:23

Satan exists. Satan is real. Satan hates you and every other human. He wants to drag you to hell. Hell was not created for humans, but unfortunately, it is where many humans will be condemned to spend eternity.

“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:”
–Matthew 25:41

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Fight back against satanic disinformation.

Believe on Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

Do You Know if You are Going to Heaven?  Be Sure!

Satan may be the god of this world, but through Jesus, believers have victory over the world and the snares of Satan!

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
–John 16:33

Don’t be deceived: Satan would love to drag you along with him into destruction. Satan is very real.

“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he doesn’t exist.”
Charles Baudliaere

Not saved?

The gospel of Christ has the power to save!

“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)

Heaven or Hell: Which Will You Choose?

Heaven or Hell: which will you choose?

Heaven or Hell: Which Will You Choose?

.

HEAVEN

Heaven is not a fairy tale. Heaven is not a bedtime story. Heaven is not some foggy place in the clouds where disembodied spirits float around strumming harps. Heaven is very real. Jesus told His disciples:

“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”
–John 14:2

In heaven, Christians will receive new, glorified, incorruptible bodies; Immortal bodies that will live for all eternity.

“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.”
–1 Corinthians 15:51-57

“For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”
–Philippians 3:20-21

In spite of the many misrepresentations in popular culture or by the entertainment industry, heaven is not dull. Hatred, death, jealousy, lying, strife: none of these will be found in heaven.

Neither will there be found pain, tears, fatigue or any of the other conditions that make this present life so hard to live.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
–Revelation 21:4

Almighty God will no longer be afar off for He will dwell with us.

“And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

We know these things to be true because they are written in the scriptures. Not only will we be inhabitants of heaven, we will be heirs.

“And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”
Revelation 21:5-7

Heaven will not be boring. It will be a place with plenty to do. The Bible hints that, in heaven, joy will be indescribable; a place of never-ending activity.

Heaven will be a place of intellectual stimulation like none we have experienced before. We will also see and know God face-to-face.

“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”
–1 Corinthians 13:12

In fact, heaven will be so overwhelmingly joyous and happy, that we mortals can’t even imagine how happy we will be.

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”

ARE YOU GOING?

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
–John 14:6

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
–John 15:24

HELL

Hell also is a very real place.  Hell is also a very terrible place; a place that was not originally intended for man.

Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:”
–Matthew 25:41

Hell is not a place where a person will play poker with their buddies. Hell is not a fairy tale or a bedtime story. Hell is real; hell is desperately dreadful and disturbing.

VIDEO: 1 minutes 24 seconds of The Reality of Hell

Jesus was very clear about how horrible a place hell is. In fact, He said it would be better to lose an eye in this life than to spend eternity in hell.

And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”
—-Mark 9:47-48

Jesus came and died for us so that we would not have to face an eternity in hell, separated from God Almighty. The most terrible thing about hell is that it is separation from God Himself and all that he represents: love, peace, joy, kindness.

ARE YOU GOING?

“…and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
–John 3:36

“The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
–Matthew 13:41-42

WHICH WILL YOU CHOOSE?

Not saved?

The gospel of Christ has the power to save!

“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)

People may argue, “God would never send me to hell.”  And they are right.

God doesn’t send anyone to hell.

People themselves choose to go to hell.

God wants all men to escape the tortures of hell.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, but that ALL should come to REPENTANCE
–2 Peter 3:9

But God is perfect. As such, he is a perfect judge who will judge sin. God will judge sin on his perfect, holy terms–not man’s.

You must decide where you will spend eternity.  There is no reason to choose to spend forever in hell.

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) - The F...
William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) – The Flagellation of Our Lord Jesus Christ (1880) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Jesus Christ has paid the full penalty for your sins on the cross. Since Jesus suffered, died and rose again, there is no reason for anyone to go to hell.

“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:”
–1 Peter 3:18

Again: where will you choose to spend eternity?

You must come to Him now just as you are: a guilty sinner unable to save yourself. Commit your life to Christ today! You can pray something like this:

“God, I know that I am a sinner worthy of hell. Thank You for sending Jesus to take the punishment for my sins that I might spend eternity in heaven with You. I invite You into my life to be my Lord and Savior. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord. I believe in my heart that You raised Him from the dead. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

If you were sincere in your heart–and God knows your heart–you are now saved! Not because you prayed a prayer–but because you realize you are a sinner in need of a Savior and have invited Jesus to be the Lord of your life.

Hallelujah!

But getting saved is only the beginning.  Now, get busy!

Go tell others about your new life in Christ!  Help lead others out of hell.  Spread the Good News of the eternal life to be had by belief on Jesus Christ!

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.
