Truth is a precious commodity and much of our lives depend upon it; justice, righteousness, and equity to name a few. Jesus even taught that our very freedom depended upon it.
“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” – John 8:31,32
He also prayed for His disciples –
“Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” – John 17:17
The word ‘sanctify’ means ‘to set apart‘. That means they would be different than other people. That is why our Founding Fathers, who were believers in the Bible, set such a high priority on free speech, making it the first Amendment to the Constitution. It’s one of the things that sets our country apart from most others in the world , certainly socialistic and communistic countries. It is why we have such a free Press. But, what is it that gives us this advantage? The Truth! Continue reading
Christians need to speak out on the issues facing us.
We are facing a war, a war of ideas and the outcome will be life changing for all of us. I do not elect to remain silent, even though many will think this war is too political and Christians should be only concerned with the spiritual and confined inside the four walls of their churches. That however, was not the attitude of early preachers. During the revolution well over 50% of sermons were political and they clearly showed the effect of the spiritual on the political. It has been a trick of the devil to mussel preachers of the Gospel by telling them to not endorse a political candidate or speak on controversial topics. So here goes! The Bible states – Continue reading
Practicing lawlessness is a serious offence to God and those who do it will suffer serious consequences. Hear the words of Jesus, the Son of God.
“The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” – Matt. 13:41,42 Continue reading
We are all dependent upon the root of Jesse, Jew and Gentile alike. The Jews are the ‘natural branch’ and the Gentiles are the ‘wild branch‘ that was grafted in. Paul writes –
“And again, Isaiah says: “There shall be a root of Jesse; And He who shall rise to reign over the Gentiles, In Him the Gentiles shall hope.”” – Rom. 15:12
God is the God of all people and He always planned to bring them together into one in Jesus, who is the ‘Root of Jesse’ – Continue reading
The saints in the Thessalonian Church were worried that the Day of Christ had happened and they had been left behind which prompted Paul to write this word of correction to them –
“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,” – 2 Thes. 2:3
What is this ‘falling away’ Paul is talking about? It is certainly not talking about the people of the world for they have never found Christ from which to fall away. Rather, it is talking about those who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ, leaders in the Christian Church, who once knew Jesus, falling away from the truth Jesus proclaimed. This falling away happens at the end of this age just before the Antichrist is revealed, or along with his revealing. Continue reading
John Adams, President of the United States of America
The Bible declares “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.” – Psalm 33:12. And there was a time when the leaders of this nation believed that.
We basically have a two party political system in this country; Republican and Democrat you say? No; God vs. No God! The Democrats have sold out to atheism and Islam and now they even want to remove the phrase “So help me God” from witness statements before Congress as the following video shows – Continue reading
