On Which Truths Are You Willing to Die?

As we approach the end, we need to know, which truths we are willing to be persecuted for, even to death if necessary. We cannot wait until it happens before we decide. Let’s be clear, your persecutors will typically give you an opportunity to recant of your strongly held beliefs and accept their false religion or heretical beliefs. If you refuse to recant then you will be hated, shunned, or persecuted. We must prepare now by being fully committed to what we believe in, knowing that it is the irrevocable truth from God’s Word. Moreover, our firmly held beliefs should have a direct correlation with our salvation and its process from beginning to end. If we don’t have a firm grip on what we believe, then it will be easy for Satan and his demonic host to lead us into error and eternal damnation. This will not be an exhaustive study of everything in which we as Christians should believe but will only examine the pillars of our belief system that must not be recanted of, even if we must face a cruel and untimely death. You will soon discover the three topics that will be discussed are already under attack by the unbelieving world.

The first topic is our belief in the infallibility of the Bible. Unlike mankind who is fallible and prone to making very many mistakes, we believe that the Word of God, the Bible, is infallible. We also believe in the inerrancy of the Scripture where there is no error in the original text received and written down under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (See II Peter 1:20-21). The Apostle Paul writing to his young apprentice says, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (II Timothy 3:16-17). We simply do not need to change the Bible that was written down for all of life and for every age. It doesn’t need to change because it is written in a simple straight forward language, perfectly correct in all its parts, and without any error. The error only comes when we as fallible human beings think we have the ability and the authority to re-interpret or change God’s inerrant Word in the Bible. No one, including the Pope or prophet, has the authority to change the infallible Word of God, which is often done by self-righteous men to introduce strange doctrines or heretical teachings into the Church that will inevitably lead men astray. This is also accomplished by freely taking Scripture out of its historical context and twisting other Scripture verses to develop a new doctrine, thus changing the clear interpretation of God’s Word. The infallible Bible is the bedrock of our faith and contains all the essential information for our salvation and transformation in Christ. To change or reinterpret the Bible destroys our entire belief system. Yes, I would be willing to die for my belief in the infallibility of the Bible.

Our second topic is the exclusiveness of Christianity. Mankind has believed in some form of religion since the beginning of creation to help them to understand their world and how to live in it without a paralyzing fear of the unknown. As the global community has grown smaller a single shared path to a universal god, instead of multiple paths, is becoming more readily acceptable to the masses. After years of religious wars and mass migrations, many have now started relaxing their own national (or traditional) beliefs and join with the global community of a shared religion, or a quasi-secular religion established by the State. Worldwide Social Media has greatly helped this process with the sharing of information across religious lines. A single path to God based on One personage or set of beliefs is becoming less acceptable and out of step with the modern world. Yet, the Bible says, “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). Most people these days will not accept the fact that there is only one way and that there is only one truth. Their ears will be itching to hear about the other religions and how the so-called good points can be integrated into their religion. This cafeteria style of religion is leading to a universal religion for the masses. The Bible says, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Jesus Christ gave us the only path to salvation that leads to a new and bountiful life in Him, which we will talk about in the next topic. Moreover, what makes Christianity exclusive? Christ is the divine Son of God who died on the Cross, rose from the grave, and is now seated at the right hand of God in Heaven. Yes, I would be willing to die for my belief in the exclusiveness of Christianity.

The third topic is the sufficiency of Scripture. This topic is the closest to my heart in that I have personally witnessed so many who have not experienced the bountiful life in Christ. They were stuck in the old life going through the same pains and experiencing the same defeats because they could not accept the Lord’s promise of a new life in Christ where old things truly pass away (see II Corinthians 5:17). They believed the lies of the world, propagated by the devil. Instead of turning to the truth in God’s infallible Word, they turned to the professionals of this age and the pharmaceutical companies to find help for their miserably sad lives. I believe this has played a major role in the great falling away. So, how sufficient is the Bible? The Bible clearly says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: (II Peter 1:3). So, if Christ has given us a brand new life, promising us that old things have passed away, then He gives us all the instructions in His Word on how to perfect this life through transformation in-Christ, so that we can be partakers of the divine nature (See II Peter 1:4), then who are we to question God? Who are we to question His great and precious promises? God wants to make us into a beautiful new creation. He wants to grow us spiritually from one degree of glory to another (See II Corinthians 3:18). As we study the Bible, we will learn how to overcome anxiety, loneliness, grief, guilt, fear, and depression along with many other emotional and psychological problems. It will show us the path through faith to the bountiful life in Christ. Yes, I would be willing to die for my belief in the sufficiency of Scripture.

In conclusion, there are many other beliefs that we hold, such as the actual dates of holy days, to the exact timing of Christ’s Second Coming, which are all very important, but I would question seriously the need to withstand persecution to death in order to defend your take on them. For example, I believe wholeheartedly that the Church must go through the Great Tribulation before they see Christ gloriously coming back in the clouds, but I would not allow myself to be persecuted to death on that particular belief. There are some teachings in the Bible that will always be up for debate and should not separate the brethren or cast us before the stake of persecution. At some points, we simply must agree to disagree, if we cannot convince the other believer through a sound argument from God’s infallible Word in love. What’s most important about this study is standing firm on the truth of our salvation in Christ, it’s miracle of the transformation, and growing up to experience the bountiful life in Christ. Although you will soon realize that the last two topics: the exclusiveness of Christianity and the sufficiency of Scripture will get the most blow-back from the fallen world, we must stand firm in what we believe. We must prepare now for the coming persecution. This article was written to help you do just that. Let me leave you with two very important questions. What would you be willing to die for? And more importantly, what are you willing to live for?

Finding Our Way in a World of Confusion (Video)

In the beginning, Christianity was called the Way because it showed those living in darkness how to find their way to the light. Unfortunately, we once again have lost our way as the whole world stumbles around in darkness with little power and no direction.

Finding Our Way in a World of Confusion

In the beginning, Christianity was called the Way because it showed those living in darkness how to find their way to the light. Unfortunately, we once again have lost our way as the whole world stumbles around in darkness with little power and no direction. Once again, we have become like little children seeking to learn the first principles of our faith. Instead of following the Way, new converts are congratulated for accepting Christ and then given a few do’s and don’ts, particularly about Church membership, but never shown the Way. They may even impress upon the new believers their need to speak calmly, not to lose their temper, and not curse. On the outside, they learn well how to act like Christians as they become experts at hiding their true intentions, their anger, their frustration, and even their lack of faith. They think that they are following the Way, but they are still in darkness. As a result, the Church keeps dividing with every new doctrine re-discovered or highlighted by self-righteous man. They say, “Come over here for I have found the way,” and the church is divided once again. It’s rather tragic as everyone learns how to express his own small opinion, allowing the world’s humanistic ways to flood the Church.

On the other hand, we must rediscover the Way or all will be lost. Fallen humanity rejoices as the dividing lines between all the different religions and faiths begin to fade. They glory in the fact that secular humanism is the thread that holds them all together as the true Way becomes lost in the annals of Christian history. Secular humanism has allowed mankind to develop his own way that fits neatly into any world religion and the social fabric of the entire world. This new way teaches mankind how he can overcome all of his emotional and psychological problems while winking at the god of his choice. When disaster strikes the church leaders are not summoned to help the distressed, rather they turn to the professional secular counselors in each country, contrary to their religious preference, to render counsel. The new world religion has already arrived showing people the false way and they wonder why their lives don’t improve. They wonder why they still need to struggle with depression. They wonder why they still struggle with anxiety and loneliness. They wonder quietly among their selves where’s the power to change. However, God’s beloved children, His faithful remnant, will not only rediscover the Way but they will walk in it, to the glory of God.

To discover the Way, we must leave the darkness and come fully into the light believing that God will give us everything we need for life and godliness (See II Peter 1:3-4). Some say that this is a leap of faith because the world and everything in the world teaches the opposite. From the cradle to the grave they teach you that you must solve your own problems. This is made possible through their higher schools of learning, their great thinkers, scientist, doctors, and professionals of psychiatry. Yet, it is God the Creator of all that exists who promises to give His children everything they need for life and godliness. God created you and knows exactly what you need, so that information must come from Him alone. Christ wants to show us a new and living Way. In fact, He is the Way. He is the great power that holds everything together. This same creative power will make us into a new creation so that Christ can come and dwell in us through the Holy Spirit. As we learn how to pray and meditate to the Father through Christ then He brings the Bible to life showing us that He alone has the answers to depression and every other emotional and psychological problem. He begins His work inside us showing us how to control our thoughts that lead to action. Step by step we are transformed into the perfect image of His Son, Jesus Christ.

So, if Christ is in us giving us the light of His glory then why would we run back to the world allowing them to teach us how to live life? Here is the problem, most who call upon the Name of Christ attempt to live in both worlds at the same time. They seek to live in the light while living in the darkness. In so doing they are led into greater confusion. I am not asking you to accept Christ, I am asking you to follow Him, for He is the Way. If you truly believe that Christ has made you into a new creation, where old things have passed away; and you also believe that He will give you everything you need for life and godliness, then there is only one thing left. We must die to self so that we can follow Jesus Christ in the Way. We learn very quickly that we can’t, but He can. We must allow Christ to do His work through us. That’s why true believers always give God all the glory. The Spiritual gifts are His gifts working through us casting out evil, raising the sick, and doing great wonders and miracles. The power of our witness is Jesus Christ working through us to breakdown walls and overcome empires. The more we die to self, the more Christ works through us so powerfully. If we don’t attempt to do it in our own power, then He will do it through us, to the glory of His Father in heaven.

The Bible says, “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:17). If God had sent His beloved Son to condemn the world then no one could be saved. On the other hand, Jesus Christ does judge the world leaving them room for repentance. Let’s be clear that Christ loves the entire world desiring to save everyone from every race, nationality, and religious upbringing. He will judge but not condemn and neither should we. His mission is to save the entire world by showing them the Way, the only Way to the Father. To show them the only Way to a new bountiful life in Christ. Although the world is in the deepest chasm of darkness, Christ still wants to work through us showing people the Way, the only Way to eternal life. Now here is the power that will enlighten the heart even in the deadest sinner. Christ died for us on the Cross to pay the penalty for our sins, then on the third day He arose from the grave and is now seated in heaven at the right hand of the Father. If we die with Him, by dying to self, then we will live with Christ in the newness of life. The simple Gospel will show us the Way, but it takes faith to receive it.

Posting the Indisputable Doctrines of The Faithful Remnant (Video)

When posting the indisputable doctrines of the faithful remnant it will cut clean across the fault lines of modern Christianity. As Martin Luther nailed the ninety-five theses to the door of the Catholic Church and later said “Here I stand, I can do no other,” we too must take our stand on the truth. As the world moves further away from the truth of God’s Word and seeks to live by its higher knowledge we have witnessed the moral decline of society. Our featured vocalists are Cindy Tilkns Jennings, Lynda Sturdevant and Paula Disbrow. After watching the video please share with others.
