The Amazing Truth of What We Were Originally Created to Be (Video)

I firmly believe that we would need to be blind if we haven’t seen the great trouble humanity and the world is experiencing. We appear to be on the brink of imploding. That is, like the ancient Roman Empire, we will not be destroyed from the great forces from outside, but from within. The trajectory of humanity and the world will end in death and destruction, if we don’t return to what we were originally created to be. We need to return to the beginning to understand, the amazing truth of what we were originally created to be. Featuring two amazing vocalists Paula Disbrow and Vickie Truett along with much more to the glory of God. After watching the video please please share with others.

The Amazing Truth of What We Were Originally Created to Be

I firmly believe that we would need to be blind if we haven’t seen the great trouble humanity and the world is experiencing. We appear to be on the brink of imploding. That is, like the ancient Roman Empire, we will not be destroyed from the great forces from outside, but from within. The trajectory of humanity and the world will end in death and destruction, if we don’t return to what we were originally created to be. We need to return to the beginning to understand, the amazing truth of what we were originally created to be. To the very beginning when humanity was created by God in His image, in the image of Him He created them (See Genesis 1:27). No one can really say how long our first parents, Adam and Eve, were in the Garden of Eden or even how many others were there with them. But one thing we know for sure that those who were created had a personal and dynamic relationship with God. For He walked with them in the Garden in the cool of the day (See Genesis 3:8). God spoke to them in an audible voice giving them instructions and seeing to their every need. There was great freedom with only one known restriction. There was nothing to harm them. They had independent thought as they named and had dominion over all other forms of life. Continue reading The Amazing Truth of What We Were Originally Created to Be

The Gospel of Peace

Today’s article continues an eight week series on the armor of God. A very important part of being prepared spiritually for the “End Times” is being dressed in and utilizing the whole armor of God for Satan will be extremely powerful and even more deceptive because he knows that his time is short. Equipping your feet in preparation for the gospel of peace is the next piece of armor to be put on by the Christian soldier. In the First Century when this was first penned by the Apostle Paul without the use of feet to carry man to the furthest parts of the Roman Empire the Gospel of Jesus Christ would have never left Jerusalem. Clearly those hoping to vanquish the powers of the enemy needed to carry the Gospel into hostile lands exercising the use of their feet. Along with the feet came the whole person not just sharing empty words, but powerful words made manifest through their holy demeanor. Their body language came aglow through the Holy Spirit, as their spiritual fruit gloriously ripened and their loving actions were demonstrated. In a dark and callous world it was a breath of fresh air for those who were suffocating under the weight of confusion caused by the devil. Although, we live in a different world were the gospel can be shared over cyberspace, closed circuit TV, and print media it will never truly take the place of a face to face encounter, where people can not only hear the gospel presentation, but observe it in the life of the one delivering it.

Revealing the Man of Lawlessness

All through history we have seen evil, sin, and lawlessness. Yet, in these last days lawlessness will increase to such a degree that the man of lawlessness will be accepted and worshiped by every nation. The old restraint spoken of in the Bible will be removed so that the man of lawlessness can be revealed. (See II Thessalonians 2:5-6) Although the interpretation of who is doing the restraining has been hotly debated for years, there is a consensus among most scholars that the legal system of the Roman Empire held gross lawlessness in check, at least the outward forms. Even the Apostle Paul saw the Roman Empire as being established by God to punish the evil doer and reward the good.(See Romans 13:1) In every world empire since the fall of the Roman Empire outward acts of lawlessness have been punished to keep man from destroying himself.  In later centuries when evil men twisted God’s law or rejected it altogether they were led to enslave men of color, commit mass executions, or seek annihilation of an entire race. Yet, in every case the world’s consciousness has led man to right these wrongs by adhering to their legal system and bringing forth a swift and powerful judgment on the evil.

Christian Persecution

It is essential to see that Christian persecution is not being led forth in all glory with a bleacher full of fellow believers rooting for you and encouraging you to stand firm. Although if one pulled back the spiritual veil you would see a great cloud of witnesses doing just that, but here upon the earth I am afraid it will be much more sinister. I believe that most of us have no idea what it feels like to be treated like a criminal. Most of us would not want to even imagine it, but we must seriously think about it. Don’t think for a minute that Christian persecution is anything different than being treated like a criminal. Christians since the beginning have been persecuted not because they were nice loving people but because they were perceived to be criminals of the first order. We have seen this for two thousand years beginning with our Lord Jesus Christ who was arrested on the charges of blasphemy and accused of sedition against the Roman Empire for claiming to be a King. This was followed by the early Christians being accused of being cannibals for eating the flesh of Jesus and drinking His blood during their love feast. Then Rome justified their persecution by claiming that they were arsons, burning down a section of the city, which destroyed homes and businesses of their fellow citizens. As I have already written Christians were also persecuted on the charge of sedition for claiming to follow another King rather than Caesar as lord. Continue reading Christian Persecution
