prophecy

“Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory ? and beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them, in all the scriptures, the things concerning himself”  Luke24: 26 – 27

Really, my friends, it’s not good enough simply to believe in “a God”….  it is your relationship and attitude towards Jesus Christ…. that will determine your destiny…. because He alone has the power to transform you…. God has given Him that authority, because He is the God-Man (God in human form).

There is NO OTHER SALVATION other than in Jesus Christ…. no amount of prayers, religious piety and sincerity in FALSE DOCTRINE can save a soul.

The entire Bible points to Jesus Christ as the saviour of the world….. from Genesis to Revelation…. through prophecy and through “types and figures”.

Muslims, Athiests, Catholics…. all in the same boat…. they need SALVATION through Jesus Christ.

Confrontation with the TRUTH is what is required…. NOT compromise….. this idea of “religious unity” and “multi-faith worship” is from the DEVIL and it is not of God.

In fact, this whole idea of “brotherly love and tolerance” is a most dangerous doctrine….. because although we are called to show brotherly love we are also commanded to take a stand for WHAT IS RIGHT and this will definitely UPSET certain people and make them “hate us”.

How do these NEW AGE ideas of “universal brotherly love” and “universal peace and goodwill toward all men” agree with scripture… when Jesus said:

“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. and a man’s foes shall be they of his own household” Matthew 10:34 – 36

This is the effect that SALVATION has upon a person….. when they become united with Christ they are a target of the enemy who runs the life of other humans….. ask any Muslim who comes to salvation in Jesus Christ, because they know first-hand the truth of Matthew 10:34 – 36….. and so do Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Catholics…. when one of them is “born again” into the Kingdom of Christ then they immediately become a “target” of their respective “religious organisations”.

NO my friends…. while we must have love towards all men…. they will not have love towards us because we WILL NOT COMPROMISE WITH EVIL…… this universal “peace and love” idea WILL NEVER SUCCEED on the present earth…. and it is just a “smokescreen” for the ANTI-CHRIST as he desperately tries to unite the WARRING FACTIONS on mankind

Prayer for Today:

Loving Heavenly Father, Help us to speak the TRUTH with LOVE in our hearts ….. for this is the hardest thing for any human to do…. for Jesus sake… Amen.

holiness

Leviticus 19:2 “You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy”

Hebrews 12:14 “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord”

GOD is PERFECTION in every way…. and this is what makes Him, Holy….. “Holy” means “separate”…. God calls us to separate ourselves from everything that is impure…. and yet, practically, this does not mean to go and live “apart” from all mankind in some deserted place…. rather we live among them, “but their ways are not our ways”…. and it is this “distinction” that CAUSES them to inquire as to our “separateness”.

It is a sad thing today that the church is no different from “any other organization”…. and the people of the church  are living lives that are so similar to the “unsaved” peoples that nobody can tell any difference.

We see in the Scripture that from beginning to end…. God has always called His people to be DISTINCT from the “rest of mankind”…… and in fact, His people will get NO RESPECT with the “heathen” UNTIL they enforce this “separateness”.

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned ? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by MEN” Matthew 5:13

“If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and MEN gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.” John 15:6

Both of the above verses show the DISDAIN and DISRESPECT that MEN have for FAKE (or backslidden), COMPROMISING christians.

Taken together the two verses above show that…..  without the Power of the Lord manifested by the ability (and necessity) to live a SEPARATE life….  christian testimony to mankind is useless…. and “fruit bearing” is impossible…. RIDICULE and/or FAILURE will be the result of any effort by the “compromising” christian to seriously CHANGE the outlook of his fellow man.

Yet today this is EXACTLY what is happening with the churches…..  some are compromising in every way…. and yet…. in spite of this are still shrinking in numbers.

Others churches have abandoned the  TRUE WAY altogether ….. and are swelling and bursting at the seems with people enjoying the good WORLDLY life ….. full of PROSPERITY, INDULGENCE and FLESHLY COMFORTS….. no mourning over the SIN in their lives (they dont even recognize this SIN) ….. and no REVERENCE for the AWESOME HOLINESS of a RIGHTEOUS GOD….. for these deceived people, the Christian Life is not seen as a difficult road to travel…  they do not really “war” with their own fleshly desires and the influences of the world and the devil…..  rather the Christian Life is presented to them as a way to get RICH and to enjoy freedom from any adversity whatsoever….. NO WONDER such churches are BURSTING AT THE SEAMS and getting bigger with each passing day….. because EVERYBODY WANTS THE “GOOD LIFE”….. but this is the MASS DECEPTION by the “god of this world” (namely the same devil who they treat like a puppy-dog)….. these people need to read REVELATION CHAPTERS 2 and 3…… the message which the LORD has given for the churches (both past, present and future).

Prayer for Today:

Loving Heavenly Father, may our lives REFLECT YOUR HOLINESS… may we have our priorities in the right order….. it is not about “what our friends think” or “how many people we can get into OUR church”….. when our lives are RIGHT with YOU, the effect we have on those around us will be controlled by Your Holy Spirit….. it does not matter whether the church is large or small…. popular or not…. we shall fulfill our destiny and have the impact you appointed us to have…. for Jesus sake… Amen.
