Formidable Voice to a Divided World

Should there be unity among all believers? This question has captivated the heart of man since the time of Christ. The Catholic church still embraces this notion of unity, but now allows great diversity among its ranks. The evangelical church has splintered off into a multitude of denominations each with their own exclusive doctrines and practices shunning the rest. This has also given rise to other fringe groups producing both fanatical and the heretical. Yet, Jesus Christ prayed for unity among all true believers, that they would be one as the Father and the Son are One, in unity of thought and action. Jesus went on to say that this unity among true believers would be a witness to the world that He was sent by the Father. Unity among all true believers would be a witness! Let me suggest that this would be a very powerful witness to a dying world that has all but rejected Jesus Christ as the only Savior. The voice of Christians and the diversity of His churches has had little effect upon the world. No one is listening. Yet they listen to the heathen in protest, while their numbers are very small, their voices are united. The unrighteous minority has had a profound effect upon the direction of this country, while the Christian Church has had almost none. Christian unity can have a formidable voice to a divided world, but before we continue it’s necessary to deal with the one objection that many have in our day when discussing unity.

So, what is that objection? Perhaps the greatest objection is what we see in the Catholic Church which has brought great diversity of doctrine into the church. Moreover, as of late much of this doctrine is embracing a liberal theology and an openness to accept other world religions on equal footing with Christianity. This kind of unity was aggressively disputed by the early Church and should also be aggressively disputed by the evangelical Christian. But even all this should not close the door to the kind of unity that our Lord and His Apostles spoke so highly about in the Bible. The unity that we as believers should strive for should be the fundamental truths of Christianity, that all believers must adhere to if they claim to be a Christian. If every true believer accomplished this and came together in unity they indeed would turn the world upside down. The world would hear a formidable voice! A voice that would tell the world that Christ did come in power to offer His salvation to the world; that we are not going quietly into the night; that we will not be overcome; and, if necessary we will all together suffer persecution rather than deny our faith. Let’s be clear the last thing we want is another denomination or another splinter group. On the other hand, we want all believers from whatever church they decide to attend to come together in unity of faith to stand up to the world with one voice. Let’s also be clear that we are not necessarily talking about standing against a certain administration, but we are talking about the world in general. We are letting our voice be heard for the people, all the people.

So, what is this fundamental faith that all true believers should possess? It’s actually quite simple, but very profound. Only fallen humanity has made it difficult. Before we get started you might ask yourself a question, “What’s in your faith that you would be willing to die for?” This will be the yardstick that we will use to measure the importance of your beliefs. Anything else in our cherished doctrines could be debated until Christ returns, but should not separate true believers in the Lord. It’s these open disagreements that have separated believers, thus having the world turn away shrugging their shoulders and stopping their ears. This must change. Only what we can agree on, can be openly proclaimed to the unbelieving world, all other religious discussion must remain mute. Even when having discussion among so called believers it must be made clear what’s imperative and what’s open for discussion. Until this happens we will never have the effect we want to have on the unbelieving world.

So, let’s look at the simple yet profound fundamentals of the Christian faith that we should all agree, to become that formidable voice to a divided world. It’s essential that we have a clear understanding of who Christ is and an understanding of the Gospel message. Clearly Jesus Christ is and was the expected Jewish Messiah fulfilling all the Old Testament prophecies about Him. He came to fulfill the role as a Suffering Servant and One who would take away the sins of the world. He came in the flesh, all human, but at the same time all divine as the only begotten Son of God. To reject either is counter Christian and aligns you with the cults, false prophets and other world religions that reject Christ’s divinity, such as the Islamic religion. Furthermore, all power in heaven and earth was given to Jesus Christ by the Father. Truly there is great power in the Name of Christ. Jesus Christ was pre-existence with the Father before the creation of the world and for humanity He is the alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. Finally, it’s imperative to understand and agree with the simple Gospel of Jesus Christ that it is a gift from God, not by works unless anyone should boast, but it is by grace, an unmerited favor. Through faith believing that Jesus Christ is exactly who He said He was, and believing He did what He said He would do, to bring salvation to humanity. Yes, Jesus Christ did die on the Cross and all our sins was placed upon Him as an atoning sacrifice. And, yes on the third day Jesus Christ did arise from the grave and is now seated at the right hand of the Father in Heaven making intercession for His followers. And, yes all our sins are forgiven and salvation is offered to all of humanity through faith, allowing us to escape the eternal damnation of hell, and to have life everlasting in heaven. Finally, Jesus Christ made it very clear that He is the only way to the Father, which eliminates all other religions. The Bible says, “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’” (John 14:7). For this every true Christian should be willing to die. We believe in the simple, yet profound Gospel, which should unite all true believers in Christ.

The second fundamental is, what God does for the new believers in Christ. After repentance of sins and belief we are forgiven of all our sins past, present and future so that we can be made into a brand-new creation in Christ. This is more than just a clean slate. We are given a new personality, new likes and dislikes, and the heart of stone is replaced with a heart of love and compassion for all the people. Then immediately the Holy Spirit is given to every true believer as a guarantee of our future inheritance in heaven. Through the indwelling Spirit we now have direct access to the Father as a child of the King. There are many wonderful and great promises in the Bible, but by far these are the greatest. We accept these promises on faith. To do less is to doubt God and seriously question your position as a true believer in Christ. Not only does the indwelling Holy Spirit open our eyes to the truth and bring to memory everything that Jesus Christ taught He also comes bearing gifts for every believer in Christ. Along with this awesome gift of the indwelling Holy Spirit comes all the needed tools (or Spiritual gifts) for the ministry. Although, there may be some disagreement of which Gifts are available. Everyone should agree that a needed gift for a specific occasion does take place and I would venture to say that all true believers will experience the use of at least one Spiritual gift in their life time. Furthermore, it is the indwelling Spirit that produces Spiritual fruit in every true believer as we continue our Spiritual growth from one degree of glory to another.

The third fundamental is, what God expects from us. He expects us to grow spiritually from one degree of glory to another by daily putting off the old life (or the old man) and putting on the new life in Christ. Again, we have been given the tools to make this possible by allowing the indwelling Holy Spirit to write God’s commandments upon our hearts and then to bring conviction and encouragement when we fail to apply them to our new life in Christ. Christ said if you love me you will keep my commandments. And His commands are not burdensome but each helps us to love God and one another. It is sad to say that most of God’s commandments, even the ones in the New Testament alone, are completely overlooked, ignored, and not applied to the believer’s life. Yet, it is these commandments that really show us how to love God and our fellow man. It is these commands that takes us by the hand and leads us into the new life in Christ. It is the indwelling Holy Spirit that always convicts us and encourages us to apply them to our new life. If you are growing in Christ, then I can assure you that you have a great desire for unity with other true believers that hold to these fundamental beliefs. I can assure you that you have a great desire to allow your voice to be heard in a divided world.

All our marching to get the heathen world to obey God’s commandments will change nothing. All our preaching to the heathen about doing the right thing will change nothing. Even our favorite doctrine about eschatology will change nothing. It will not change hearts. The only thing that will change the heart of man is the Gospel along with the fundamental truths that all Christians share. To change the heart of man is only possible through the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Only when we come together believing that Christ brought us a new life in Him giving us the Gift of the Holy Spirit as our guarantee will we be able to affect the direction of this country. I say it again, where is the united and formidable voice for Jesus Christ? If the heathen can come together in small numbers and change the direction of this country and the world, imagine what God’s children can do if they only speak up. Speak together as one united voice for Christ. Please don’t take all your favorite hotly debated doctrines to the heathen, but only take the fundamentals of God’s Truth, what God has done for humanity and what He expects us to do. Nothing more and nothing less, then we will truly change the world for Christ.

Love All the Children

A Love note from God, to all pregnant women (and parents who have accepted the greatest gift imaginable). As you’re sitting there contemplating the life that’s within you please realize that God, creator of all that exist, has plans for your child as he’s being formed within the womb. What an amazing thought. That this child of yours could be used of God in some mighty task in saving others or establishing His Kingdom here on earth. This child of yours could end up being the President of the United States of America; or some great scientist who discovers the cure for some horrible disease like Alzheimer’s; or some great evangelist that would turn the peoples heart back to God and His magnificent love. Can you only imagine what would have happened if Mary would’ve chosen abortion to escape people not understanding the miraculous birth of a virgin? Because of her faithfulness, the Son of God was born in human flesh to bring salvation to humanity. Even if your child does not climb to such heights, he will still have a tremendous effect upon others living in the world. Just think about the number of lives that you have personally touched. Perhaps some for the good and some for the bad, but either way it may have helped them to grow stronger and more resolute to face the many trials and tribulations in the world.

The greatest gift that God has given to humanity is the gift of life through the natural act of procreation. It is so unfortunate that this beautiful act has been reduced to only sexual pleasures with no thought of bringing forth life to be cherished and loved. The gift is for you, for there are countless stories how a child born to struggling parents have gone on to bring great blessings to its parents, emotional, psychological, and even financial. Please don’t haphazardly throw this gift away, but embrace it with all the vigor and strength that you can muster, accepting the responsibility with faith that God will provide for your every need, along with the child’s. Let us love all the children even the child that is being formed within your womb.

Then, what a joy it is to see your little child grow up taking on his own unique personality. God protected him while he was in the womb, now it’s our responsibility to protect him from a world who desperately wants to mold him into its own image of free choice and gross immorality. As little sponges they soak up everything you say and do as the ultimate role model for humanity. Although, at times the responsibility may seem overbearing, it is God who gives dear Mothers and Fathers the grace and knowledge through His Bible to raise their children in the way they should go, for indeed the promise is true that says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). Just remember that God is with you and your child. He wants to hear from you through heart felt prayers and repentance, so that He can lavish you with His many blessings and benefits, the greatest blessing of all, is a new life in Christ. And for those who have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, let me invite you to take a few moments and listen to, “God’s Message to Humanity,” by clicking here.

Watch this video on Tribulation Radio.

Perhaps one of my most moving videos to describe God’s love for all the children even those still in the womb of their blessed Mother (from the article above). Crystal Rollison from South Carolina also gives an impassioned talk about her stand against abortion in that State, along with singing for the first time on Tribulation Radio.

The Prophetic Note – The New Globalist

With the election of Donald J. Trump as the President of the United States it has rendered a serious blow to the old Globalist and championed a new voice for Nationalism. If the campaign rhetoric holds true there will be a much stronger and more robust military to extend its power, but limit its presence in the world’s many civil wars and those nations who squabble over territorial rights, and religious or secretarial differences. Open borders and free trade will be curtailed to equalize a larger benefit to a nation that looks to rebuild itself as the richest and most powerful nation on the earth. But don’t think for one minute that this will turn into quasi isolationism. The new Globalist will indeed exercise its power over all the nations both militarily and economically expanding, not limiting, trade and intercourse for the nation’s best interest. Although natural blocks may be formed unifying certain countries together for perceived protection, trade agreements, and strongly held religious or non-religious beliefs. These blocks will simply follow the biblical prophecy that says eventually the Kings of the East will believe that they can make a united stand against the strongest and most feared nation in the world, leading into what Christians call Armageddon. For now, there will be a new Globalist setting up his new kingdom creating euphoria amongst a people who has suffered long economically under the old Globalist. This new measure under President Donald J. Trump will win the hearts and minds of all the people creating unity, and for this we will praise God. Continue reading The Prophetic Note – The New Globalist
