Slaves of Sin to Slaves of God.

What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! Do you not know that to whom you present yourdelves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of docrtine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin you became salves of righteousness. Romans 6:15-18. 13_guy-chained
Obeyed, hupakouo, Strong’s # 5219: to hear as a subordinate, listen attentively, obey as a subject, answer and respond, submit without reservation. To listen to something hearken (Acts 12:13) ; mostly it means to obey, (duh) give heed, follow, yield, of servants, soldiers, students (Matt. 8:27; Mark 1:27; Luke 8:25; Eph. 6:1,5).
The word thus contains the ideas of hearing, responding, and obeying.
This word also refers to the manifestation of faith as revealed in humble acceptance of the Gospel message (Acts 6:7; Rom.6:17; 10:16; 1 Thess. 1:8; 3:14; Heb.5:9).
Slaves of sin do not recognize the obligation to righteousness, but rather abondon themselves to a process of moral deteration, which has death as its end. Slaves of God, on the other hand devote themselves to holiness, a road that leads to everlasting life.

Beware Of Dead Mens Bones-part two.

hypocrite

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness…” Matthew 23:27,28.
Hypocrisy, hupokrisis, (Noun) Strong”s # 5272- from hupokrinomai, (5271), to pretend. Hypocrisy, dissimulation (Mark 12:15; Luke 12:1; Gal.2:13; 1 Tim. 4:2; 1 Pet.2:1).

Hupokrisis was used generally for flattery or evil deception.
Hypocrisy is a sin which is exposed by our Lord as no other because it corrupts the conscience averting holiness of life. It exchanges the ceremonial and formal for the personal and practical (Matt. 15:6). It uses sectarian rule as a substitute for judgment and the love of God (Luke 11:42).
It cannot receive the truth, because its eye is on man and not on God (John 5:44). It asks questions not in order to hear the truth, but in order to refute it (John 9:27,28). It is chained to its error by a confident assurance that it alone is right (John 9:41).
A direct attack is the only way to counter hypocrisy, an opponent of all truth. The hypocrite in a special way is the child of the father of lies (John 8:44). Hypocrisy cannot live in the environment of truth, and it can only defend itself through the persecution of others (John 8:37).tissot_pharisees_610x300
Jesus’ forceful reviling against the Pharisees in Matthew 23 was that, sitting in Moses’ seat, they showed a spirit in which truth cannot dwell. The Pharisees neither entered the kingdom nor allowed others to enter (Matt. 16:3,4), they knew how to interpret weather signs but were ignorant of the signs of the times, that is, the fulfillment of the kingdom in the person of Jesus.
Hypocrisy stands in opposition to faith as it works to damage the whole man, just as faith works to regenerate him. It takes away the key to knowledge (Luke 11:52).

Imam recites Quran for the first time in the Vatican

Presented for your listening pleasure, as well as a leg up on the new catechism. The pointy headed leader of the world’s Roman Catholic Church is on a roll in his effervescent outreach to blend all religions into Rome; after all, all roads lead to Rome.

HISTORIC FIRST EVER ISLAMIC PRAYERS AT VATICAN SIGNALS START OF ONE WORLD RELIGION.historic-first-muslim-prayers-vatican-pope-francis-revelation-17-false-prophet-one-world-religion

“AND UPON HER FOREHEAD WAS A NAME WRITTEN, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
“These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” Revelation 17:14
CHRISLAM WILL BE THE ONE WORLD RELIGION (Rick Warren is gushing)
The book of Revelation is quite clear when it discusses the Catholic system in chapters 17 and 18. The Vatican sitting on seven hills is called the “mother of harlots”, a pagan system of worship that has control over the whole world. She is carried by the beast, and is the enemy of God. More than that, she will rule for a period of time with complete power over kings, mighty men and all the inhabitants of the earth. The One World Religion during the time of the Great Tribulation.
Historic-first-muslim-prayers-vatican-pope-francis-revelation-17-false-prophet-one-world-religion “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4
So it is with great interest that we note that the Vatican, which represents 1 billion+ Catholics around the world, and Islam which claims more than 1 billion+ Muslim adherents, have begun to merge and join forces.

The Roman Catholic Church startled the religious and secular world today, with the official announcement – admitting: “ISLAM has now become the world’s largest religion – the Vatican newspaper said in Sunday’s “Vatican City” ‘For the first time in history, we are no longer at the top: Muslims have overtaken us,’ Monsignor Vittorio Formenti said in an interview with the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano.

Al Arabiya reports this: For the first time in history, Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran will be heard at the Vatican on Sunday, in a move by Pope Francis to usher in peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Holy See officials on Friday said the evening prayers would be a “pause in politics” and had no political aim other than to rekindle the desire for Israeli-Palestinian peace at the political and popular level.

Here is what Muslims think about Jesus.muslim-koran-what-they-say-about-jesus

 

This from followers of a man who was illiterate, a bandit and took a  9 year old girl as his wife. Now there’s a theology that “The religion of men” can be proud of. Have you ordered your foot bath yet?

 

 

Three kinks in your Armor.

 

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 1 Peter 5:8, 9 NKJV.1Peter5_8

As believers our growth in the Lord can be stymied by three distinct enemies: Satan, the world and its enticements, and our own flesh. The Apostle Peter gives a clear picture of Satan who walks around like a lion on the hunt. True to the easy life style of  lions, they seek weak, young, isolated unguarded animals.

These easy prey are marked for attack. Here is the malignancy of the leader of darkness. His goal is not to merely to attack, but to destroy us, it is not simply to inflict hurt through a life time of abuses, wounds, and traumas, but to discourage by a broad based attack on fundamental doctrines.

He employs a network of evil, malignant imps (demons) to work tirelessly to get us to bow to circumstances, pressures, an forces of evil design, in hopes of getting us to yield to him.

To overcome, do the reverse: B.O.W. To Jesus, the one you and I, Believe, Obey, and Worship. Jesus overcame against all forces, refusing to bow, to Satan’s devices (Matt. 4:8-10), and our growth in Him will bring the same ability to resist or stand against Satan (1 Peter 5:9). Put on the full Armor of God: arm yourself with the Word of God ( Eph. 6:10-14), believeHim (Heb. 11:6), obey Him (1 John 3:24), and worship Him (John 4:23).

          Receive and conquer in Jesus’ overcoming victory!

 

Are you fragmented in your mind, or clear headed?

 

What do you think about this topic? Does it give pause for thought and maybe reflection? Christianity is clearly under attack from without and from within, nothing new here. Are you clear headed in your belief, or are you following the machinations of men. The distinctions are evident. I appreciate the pastor’s clear and distinct reply’s. How about you?

 

 

 

 

 

False Grace Doctrine

 

 

NT Wright HBU Convocation,Theology Conf 3 19 14

What say you to the “New Perspective on Paul?” Here is Doctor. N.T.Wright’s spin on his books.

 

So let’s have your take on this. What do you think?

Son of God movie, watch it and pick up a spirit guide at the end.

Over the past few months I’ve been reading a lot about the Roma Downey/Mark Burnett film, Son of God, which is due out in theaters in about a week. It’s really being played-up on a number of Christian websites as a “break-through epic film” for Christians and their families, and even an “evangelistic-tool”. 

The Christian Post, for instance, has posted a number of stories concerning this film over the last 6 months, including an “Exclusive: Roma Downey Presents ‘Son of God’ Trailer to CP Readers“. Before you run out to your nearest theater to see it, I wanted to pass this article along for your reading. What do you call someone who is a student of new age psychology and spiritualism? Do you call them new agers? Do you call them seekers? Would you dare call them Christian? Well, if you’re Roma Downey, then yes, you would call yourself all the above.

 

Lightwalkers-Media

Pennie Louise De Witt

sandaraThe image on the left is Sananda. He is frequently channeled by new agers and he is a real spirit. He is the Jesus that the Lightworkers are promoting.

The production company that made the “Son of God” movie is called Lightworkers Media. If you pray to receive the Lightworkers’ Jesus at the end of “Son of God,” this is the guy who will answer your prayer.

The link below is to just one chapter in “The New Scriptures,” written by him through one of many mediums who channel him. As you can see, he adds to scripture, promotes the love of Self (with a capital S) before the love of God or others, and derides “all the major religions.” He says, “It is time to put an end to the self-loathing and despair which has been taught by all the major religions in some form.” This is what he will lead you to believe if you accept him into your heart.

He says, “There is no vengeance, no punishment nor any threat of disapproval or any other dark judgment in God’s Love. This is the mythology of the past, and it is a misunderstanding of what God feels toward his/her children.” He strips God of His holiness and even attempts to prime us for goddess worship.

He states, “I AM Love because I am God, just as you are.” Never mind what Jesus said in John 8:23. “And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.”

He urges us to use our own “God” power. “All can manifest the Dream of their Hearts if they only have Faith in their own power.”

He teaches reincarnation, “This is what you have lived and died for in many past lifetimes, Dear Ones,” using references from the Bible. “You are indeed at the threshold of the Promised Land.”

He then reveals, clearly, his teaching that you are God. “It is in turn fueled by the Love of your Higher Self, God.” (This is a teaching directly from satan. Isaiah 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.)

I channeled Sananda when I was a Lightworker. And he was one of the spirits who tried to torture me after I renounced occultism and turned to Jesus.

This is the Jesus Lightworkers believe in. And this is the Jesus they want YOU to believe in. You can be sure that a movie about Jesus is going to contain subtle depictions of Sananda.

Sananda is not Jesus. He is a demon. And the movie, “Son of God” was produced by people who serve that demon.

Here is the text that the above quotes came from: http://lightworkers.org/channeling/186869/chapter-seven-new-scriptures-written-sanandajesus

One website that features this exact picture of Sananda:

Here is the production company that made the movie “Son of God.” http://www.lightworkersmedia.com/

Here is Roma Downey’s Facebook page, listing Lightworkers Media as her production company: https://www.facebook.com/Roma.Downey/info

Can God use a movie like this to spread the gospel? Of course He can. He can use psychics too. He used me to encourage my clients to read the Bible before I closed my business and gave my life to Him.

But this doesn’t mean we should start promoting psychics or that I should go back into business. Matthew 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

The enemy is defeated by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimonies.

Is Doctrine Necessary?

All that matters is love, really!     

It is amazing that my home church has taken hold of this smoze form R.C.C. This is a world wide push to bring everyone into the R.C.C., buyer beware! I put up a post on February 24th quoting Amos 3:3. Please take time to reflect on what is happening on a grand scale. Please read your Bible and see that truth matters very much as expressed in the Word of God.

I will be posting another article on the theme of “All that matters is love.”  It will be entitled: When love divorces doctrine and unity rejects truth. 

Celebrating a Birth

The Incarnation

The True Meaning of Christmas

During the Christmas season, Christians celebrate the great truth of the Incarnation. For in the Christ child of Bethlehem, God enters into human history and reveals Himself up close and personal. The astounding truth is that in Jesus Christ, God is encountered in a real, personal, historical, and tangible way. Alistair E. McGrath reflects upon the ultimate significance of Christmas:

What sorts of things does the incarnation tell us about the ‘God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ’? Perhaps most obviously, it tells us that the God with whom we are dealing is no distant ruler who remains aloof from the affairs of his creatures, but one who is passionately concerned with them to the extent that he takes the initiative in coming to them. God doesn’t just reveal things about himself –- he reveals himself in Jesus Christ…. The incarnation speaks to us of a God who acts to demonstrate his love for us. That ‘God is love’ (1 John 4:8) is a deep and important truth—but far more important is the truth that God acted to demonstrate this love. ‘In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him’ (1 John 4:9).’ Actions, as we are continually reminded, speak louder than words.
