Bad things happen because of the rebellion against a Holy God. The rebellion is alive and well reaching to the depths of the human heart. Every area of society including the church has been sorely affected by this rebellion. This rebellion is as old as the fall of humanity that was seduced by the devil and the powers of darkness. It was a dark day indeed that inevitably tarnished God’s beautiful creation. The heart of mankind has not been the same since and never will be apart from the recreative act of a merciful and loving God. The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). This is good news for those who have been truly transformed in Christ. On the other hand, the remainder of humanity will continue to go from bad to worse experiencing the trauma of being cut off from a loving God and being controlled by the powers of darkness. The depth of this control will be examined to demonstrate how aggressively the chains of bondage have increased blinding almost all of humanity. This was accomplished by deception causing them to misunderstand the consequences of their sins. Continue reading Why Do Bad Things Happen?
How do we stand with Christ and not stand with politicians? All the Apostles, prophets, and ministers of old taught us how to stand with Christ. None of them taught us how to stand with their national leaders and politicians other than to simply pray for them. Pray we must. Pray specifically that they will follow the law of God, treating everyone with dignity and respect. Also, pray that we will have an open door to share the eternal Gospel with them. We were taught to pray that they would rule righteously so that we, as God’s children could live in peace. We were taught to stand with Christ contrary to what our rulers did or didn’t do. Are we truly standing with Christ today? This is a question that should reach deep into the heart of every professed believer in Christ. This is a question that will haunt every believer who is sitting on the fence trying to stand with their national leaders and Jesus Christ at the same time. This is a question that will drive a deep wedge between true believers and those who are pretending to stand with Christ alone. This is a question that will separate the flock. This is a question that will eventually expose the wolf who has entered God’s vineyard. So, let us ask the question, “Are you truly standing with Christ alone?” Continue reading Stand With Christ, Not Politicians
Logic has become a popular term in our day that goes by many different names. It has become the culmination of acquired knowledge, wisdom, and the result of many hours of research. It has also been referred to as a sixth sense, the receiving of a gut feeling, or the expression, “it makes sense.” Logic contrary to what we call it allows humanity to make their many choices in life, which is always a gamble that can cause tremendous suffering when wrong choices are made. Although we make hundreds of decisions every day, there are a few that could have profound consequences if the wrong decision is made. Unfortunately, those consequences are not always immediately observable as we see through a glass darkly, limited by time and space (I Corinthians 13:12). Most will do all their homework, run the numbers, and have even done their research, but for fallen humanity, it’s always a gamble. Granted, some of fallen humanity doesn’t even bother doing any kind of research but allows their felt needs to direct their choices in life, even if they know it’s wrong or costly. When humanity removes God from their decision-making or just pays Him lip service, then the consequences can be devastating. So, it’s essential to understand God’s will even if it’s beyond logic. Continue reading God’s Will is Beyond Logic
There is a battle raging in the world today that will ultimately destroy all flesh. The battle is so intense that many are driven to the threshold of insanity committing horrific acts of brutality that no longer shock us. The battle is so intense that it’s causing great divisions in humanity that go well beyond the natural boundaries of nationality, race, or political affiliation. The battle is within the hearts and minds of humanity. The battle is so intense that it’s causing untold psychological and emotional problems driving many to the counselor’s office, psychotropic drug addiction, or suicide. There will come a time when it’s no longer just the left against the right or one group against another. The battle is within the mind as people fight to maintain a sense of normalcy or even their existence as human beings. Although many will attempt to escape their reality, in the end, it will still bring total destruction to all of humanity. On the other hand, there will be a few who will not be overcome by this great battle for the mind. Some will learn how to access the great power to win the battle. Continue reading Accessing Power to Win the Battle
Not everyone follows or wants to follow God. Remember, dear friends, there was a rebellion in heaven by Satan and his fallen angels, who no longer wanted to follow God. This rebellion has continued for thousands of years and continues today on Planet Earth. Our all-powerful God could have stopped the rebellion then and He has the power and authority to stop it now. God chose not to! Simply and profoundly put, our Mighty God does not want slaves, He wants followers. After watching this video, please share it with others.
