Walking in Truth, Our First Step to Transformation

Are you in a church that’s helping you to be transformed? Another way of saying it, are they helping you to put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ? I hope so. If not, then let me encourage you to stay where you are and join the ranks of the faithful remnant by learning how to really walk in truth to experience transformation in Christ. To do so will not only help you, but it will start a movement within your church to help others. Most of us have heard the old saying tossed about for years but few these days really understand its meaning. The saying is, “The whole Gospel truth.” As a believer, I venture to say that you know your church doctrine and may even have large portions of your Bible memorized, but you may not know if you are being transformed. Are you truly experiencing the new life in Christ? I hope to remedy that by showing you how to walk, in truth, which is our first step to transformation.

Once you have taken the first step no one will be able to stop your growth and that includes Satan. Let me be very clear. We are not preaching a different gospel. There is only one Gospel, the one written down so clearly in the New Testament. We believe the old gospel that Christ died on the Cross and then rose again so that through faith we could have a new life in Christ. So, if it’s still there, why is it no longer believed even though it’s still being preached and taught in your Bible classes? The short answer was covered in my last week’s article about the Lukewarm church, but simplistically stated again: “we must believe, really believe, the truth that God wants to give us life, to transform us.” He wants to make us into a new creation. As a new creation, you will not have one of the four static personalities, but you will have a dynamic personality that’s being changed into the likeness of Christ. We cannot go any further if you don’t believe this truth. To build on any other foundation will keep you in Christian infancy or as the Bible refers to as a carnal Christian unable to experience transformation.

To really believe this truth will open a whole new set of possibilities that will bring to light obscure passages of Scripture that may have been read before but not fully understood. The first one we will look at is in the letter to the Romans. The Bible says, “But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life” (Romans 6:22). The first thing we see here is a process, we are now “being” made free. We are no longer under the control of Satan or the old sin nature. The Apostle says it again in another letter, where he says, put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ. So, we must get the process started by believing that it’s not only possible, but it will become a reality. Trust me, I will say it one more time. If you don’t believe this you will not be transformed no matter how many sermons listen to, no matter how many Bible studies you attend and no matter how many Scripture verses you memorize. We must truly believe in the transformation. We must believe that God wants to make you into a beautiful new creation like you were originally meant to be.

The next thing we need to do is to expect the transformation. We must expect it to take place in our life. This is much more than wishful thinking, walking the aisle, and accepting Jesus. It is expecting the transformation to take place in our lives. To expect God to re-create a brand-new life in us to the glory of God. Most walking the aisle and accepting Jesus, which by the way isn’t in the Bible, don’t really expect to be changed. Most are just looking for acceptance, fellowship and their free ticket to heaven. They may even look for miracles, visions, and healing, but that’s it. That’s all that most people expect. And if that’s all you expect that’s all you will get. We must expect the transformation to take place in our lives. If you want to be transformed and you really want to experience the new life in Christ, then read further.

At this point, we must realize that we cannot possibly do this on our own. You may have already tried. We don’t need to, because God gives us two things to cause the transformation to happen. Let’s look at the first. God gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit that puts a seal on us; we now belong to God. Then the Spirit comes to dwell with us 24/7 for the rest of our lives. His job is threefold. He brings to your mind what other believers have taught you, the words of the Bible, and His still small voice. This voice of conviction tells you the things you need to put off, repent of, no longer do and very importantly the things you need to put on or put in their place. For example, if you learn that you can no longer lie then that is the thing to put off; then what do we put in the place of it? We speak truthfully to our neighbor (See Ephesians 4:22ff). As you learn this one lesson along with many others quickly to follow you will begin to grow in your new life. The Bible refers to this as growing from one degree of glory to another. This is the Spirit’s job. He is our Counselor. Our job is to listen and obey.

The second thing God gives us to help in our transformation is other believers in the Church. Now here is the exciting thing about transformation. God through the Holy Spirit will work as fast as you are willing. It does not need to take years while you sit in the church waiting for the next weekly sermon. No, it happens every day by spending quality time with other maturing brothers and sisters in the Lord. Your spiritual growth or transformation must, I repeat, must happen every day. The established church may only come together once a week, but God’s holy children of the faithful remnant must come together daily. In the old days we used to call this discipleship where a mature believer who is being transformed meets with a new believer in Christ, desiring transformation. Watch this! Everyone must be involved. You are either the mature believer being transformed, or you are the newer believer who is struggling with putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. This is not a counseling center, it is the Church of God filled with His beloved children helping one another in their growth.

So, the question we must ask ourselves is, “are we truly helping others to grow up in Christ.” Be careful how you answer that question. This is not just about sharing your opinion for that particular day. It is not just a casual, fun fellowship. It is walking with the other person. Observing their behavior, the things they say, and the things they believe about their relationship with Christ. It always begins with listening. The Bible says, “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath” (James 1:19). We must really listen without thinking of something else, then pause while you speak quietly to the Spirit so that He alone can lead you on what to say to your brother or sister, to really help them in their transformation. This is the job of the Church. We are the Church. This is our responsibility. Not just the responsibility of the Pastor, the teachers, and not the job of so-called professional counselors. It is our job to help others to grow in their faith, to become all that God has called them to be in their new life. The Bible says, “And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another” (Romans 15:14). God has given all His children the ability to help one another grow in their new life. So, let’s help one another walk in truth and take their first step to transformation.

The Prophecy (Video)

Why does anyone reject a true prophet? Why would anyone reject, “The Prophecy.” Clearly, prophecies tend to dash people’s hope. Although I may proclaim loudly it doesn’t need to do that, for most it will. Hope is a very powerful tool in the hands of those who wish to shape the destiny of a nation. It’s very powerful when people want something different than what they had before. After watching this video please share with others.

The Prophecy

They say that a prophecy unsaid is like burning embers in the soul of man. If the spiritual vision was real and the mind was expanded to receive it then I must, I feel compelled, to proclaim it. Let this prophecy be spoken first to the Christian Church then in time all will hear. Some will accept it while many others will reject this truth and will continue on their merry way. Why does anyone reject a true prophet? Why would anyone reject, “The Prophecy.” Clearly, prophecies tend to dash people’s hope. Although I may proclaim loudly it doesn’t need to dash your hope, for most it will. Hope is a very powerful tool in the hands of those who wish to shape the destiny of a nation. It’s very powerful when people want something different than what they had before. Let’s keep that in mind while we listen to this prophecy. There is so very much to say it’s difficult to know where to start. So, I will start at the beginning.

Perhaps our hope was found in the new administration. For many years this country and the world were all headed in one direction. As the ship of State continued full steam ahead there was not that many major course corrections, no matter which party was elected. Their goal then and now was globalization. No borders, no walls, no problem. They worked frantically to build a brave new world to accept every lifestyle, every sexual orientation, and every religion upon the planet to accept one another as partners in this new world order. Even the Catholic Church has embraced this idea during the Obama Administration. The young men of science have paved the way by demonstrating how AI or Artificial Intelligence could greatly improve our lives and how they now had it in their power to stop global warming, send men to distant planets, to keep asteroids from hitting planet earth, to remove hunger, poverty and establish a UBI or Universal Basic Income, which we will talk more about in a minute.

First, we need a bit of a history lesson. For a very long time now perhaps from the late sixties step by step this country along with the rest of the world has been pushing God completely out of the picture. From evolution to psychology to prescription drugs young people were being taught that God did not have all the answers for modern man. The entertainment industry, schools of higher learning, and the news media agreed leading an entire planet to accept its new teachings. Eventually, the laws of God disappeared from our schools and government buildings being replaced with the laws of man. Teaching them that anything is possible if we just all learn to accept one another by tearing down our walls, opening our borders, and to hate the bigots or those who disagree. This has all been going on for a number of years while most of us slept. The previous administration of Barrack Obama woke up some of us to fight back while we still had haunting memories of colored lights on the White House.

This fight energized most of the Christian population to go to the polls. Deep in the heart of the American psyche they desired a new direction. They were tired of the perversions in the streets of America. They needed a new hope and they found it in an outsider. He was a bit rough around the edges, seemed a bit prideful, and had a sordid past with the women. But we liked his promises to make America great again hopefully sending it back to its biblical roots and to stop all this crazy talk about a new world order with open borders. We discovered quickly, however, that it was not going to be easy. The new administration rejected everything the world had been working on so hard to accomplish. People crying in the streets, making death threats, and abusing those who work for his administration showed us just how deep the divide was. The pendulum had swung fully to the right to rebuild the republic on the founding principles of capitalism. With the embrace of the Christian community the day had been won, a new hope and been established, but the prophecy does not look good for either capitalism or for the Christian.

Most economists know that eventually capitalism will fail. It will not be compatible with the new age of AI or Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Robotics that will replace most humans as workers on the planet. Once that happens they will have no choice but to enact UBI or Universal Basic Income which will not work with Capitalism. The world will need a form of socialism and we all know from history where that will lead. There will only be two classes of people, those who run the world and everyone else. Before we get to that point the globalists will be back in office making plans for the future. The transition will be a lot easier than you think, because all the young people that had been groomed and taught by the State for so many years are now back in power. The pendulum will once again swing all the way in the opposite direction and they will remember well who had sent their ship of State in a different direction. They will remember well how the Christian community supported the previous administration run by the outsider.

So how is this going to affect the Christian who is living after the pendulum swings back allowing the globalists back into power? Not much for those who have already fallen away and no longer believe in the sufficiency of Scripture and the exclusiveness of Christianity. On the other hand, those who have remained faithful to the doctrines of Christ will be hated for the years they disrupted all their plans by forcing the ship of State to go in an opposite direction. This hatred will not be curbed by the globalists but may actually join with them in an open persecution of God’s faithful remnant. What we have seen as of late, such as refusing to serve people in a restaurant, by taunting them on the streets, or their vulgarity in the news media will pale in comparison. The onslaught of their hatred will not be unlike the first persecution in Ancient Rome. The Christian community will be blamed for its years of frustration with the previous administration. The prophecy is true, the pendulum will swing back, and Christians will be persecuted. God help us to stand firm. Amen

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.

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. Unfortunately, many so-called Christians have joined with them creating open hostility against the faithful remnant, those who hold to these indisputable doctrines that are stated in this article. I have been personally attacked and threatened for the teachings that I so dearly hold onto with the same determination of those early Christians who took their stand against their persecutors. Please read carefully allowing God’s Holy Spirit to lead you to accept these truths and join the ranks of the faithful remnant. Then join me as we spread the truth to all those who have ears to hear. Here I stand, I can no other. Continue reading Posting the Indisputable Doctrines of The Faithful Remnant
