Examining the theology of the entire Bible reveals that there are at least six different types of wrath – from God.
What is the difference – “denying Christ” versus “being faithless”?
How is your soul doing? You yourself can enrich your soul as you walk your day close to God — through all your experiences. Each day you input there, into your soul.
Is your brain noggin talkin’ biblically? God does not overlook and excuse our sins. Never has. Never will. He forgives – or – he condemns. However, Jesus dealt with the sins of others in a much more merciful manner than we tend to do with our self and our sins – and the sins of others. When it comes to “sin”: Is your brain noggin talkin’ biblically, or …how?
It doesn’t matter who you think you are, God is not impressed. He will judge all of us on an equal basis. And when God calls a sin, “sin”, it is. How can a deep heart and intelligent mind become so painfully befuddled, to the point that one comes to actually believe that Jesus is okay with sin? So what in the world are people thinking: Calling themselves “Christians” but contradicting Jesus?
Ever try to convince your mind that your behavior is not really all that bad?
What are we to do in Hell? I don’t know, actually.
How eerie to read headline news and realize they are predictions made centuries ago in the Bible. This passage in 2 Timothy 3:1-14 lists the increasing evils in the perilous times that we can so clearly see coming to pass in our times. It is only the hope we have within us that will keep us strong.
I must admit – I battle piccadilly attitudes and unguarded moments, most every day. Get that yourself? I tend to think of “love” as my choice. But Christian agape love is a constant – with all peoples. I must guard my soul from fickle piccadillies (where I bend and accept tiny “small sins).
Entrance into God’s Home Heaven is going to be – Oh so very amazing! Wonderful! But getting there is difficult. Frankly, I doubt you ever will. What do you think?
My needy, needy soul needs to stay close to Creator God who formed me. We all do, wouldn’t you agree? God our Maker is still very involved in His creation, still. He desires to be intimately involved.
“What’s in a name?” A “Jesus” who is not the Jesus of the New Testament, of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Paul… is not the Savior who saves us for all eternity. Be careful who you follow.
Believing “in the name…” means you believe in “all that Jesus Christ is and does”. Where are you at on this spectrum? Truly saved — almost but not — going to Hell for sure.
Some day soon, whether through my death, or via the Rapture, “time will be no more” for me. Time will cease for me in that moment. I’m ready for that. How about you? No doubt about it! I’m assured by the Lord that there is no question about this: I’ll be there. God already gave me eternal life. I have it now!
“What man can live and not see death?” (Psalm 89:48) Death is quite the non-respecter of peoples. We die. That’s it, for earth time. Done. Finito. But there is One who has had victory over death.
…what happens when you are born again, when you are reborn from above Born Again You must die to yourself, and then be reborn – like a grain of wheat dies, to be born again to new life. Jesus said this clearly in John 3: “You must be born again.” verse 3 John 12:24 I […]
So what’s it going to be today? Anger, sadness, loneliness, depression, despair? Or will you be “full-up”… filled up with “hope and confident assurance” (1 Peter 3:15)?
It’s crazy how so many have tried in the past, and are still doing it – “re-interpreting” or discovering some “personal or special” interpretation (2 Peter 1:19-21), attempting to legitimize a new creative way to have it their way. If that is happening in your church – don’t believe it. It is our “job”, our responsibility, as followers of Christ – to use the Bible to ascertain what is of God and what are “the words of a puny human” (we are all “puny humans”). Huge difference. I personally do not want to hear some puny opinions when I go to church. I want to hear God’s “word of truth”.
We all have a sin problem. Some have dealt with it with God. Others have dealt with it by their own thinking and rationalizations. What have you done with your sin problem?
We are warned by the Apostle Paul and Matthew about the days when many will practice religion to look good, but inwardly… they are “full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean.” This you? Matthew 23:27
Have you so, so wanted “the miraculous”, that you swallowed the whole lie, hook, line, and sinker… the ultimate Bethel Bill deception of following a Jesus who was not God? Scary thought.
Here are three simple guidelines to help us stay true to God’s meaning – when reading the Bible, or hearing a Bible teaching.
NAR “associated” churches continue to flourish. Many people who are part of this movement don’t know it’s called the New Apostolic Reformation. In fact, they may not even know they are part of a movement at all. And they may not be fully aware of all the extreme teachings associated with it. Do you?
When you step into eternity, will you rest assured that you have eternal life? You can.
If we genuinely have this hope within us, we will be actively cooperating with the Spirit of God to become purified. You that?
Social justice comes from the heart – to others. How’s that streaming from you?
Smile. It affects others.
What is the joy of your Christmas this year?
We are still living in the period of time called “the first things” (Revelation 21:4). The mystery of what God wants for us – has been made known to us in the Bible. Are you following His will? In the midst of all the uncertainties of living these days, our trust must always be placed in God’s Hands. There is no better option.
In God’s Home Heaven, we will all be: living in incorruptible, immortal bodies…loving God forever “with all that we are”.
