an approved workman of god s word
Published
My heart is heavy and dumb founded tonight as I sit before the Lord seeking his guidance as to the blog he wishes me to write for I have been pierced many times this week with the deception that I have discovered in peoples interpretation of the holy...
the delusion of god s love
Published
As I look back at the 'signs of times' I have noticed an error creeping into the culture of Christian thinking and to some extent modern teaching concerning the nature of God's love. There appears to me a deception that to be loved by God...
deception is acknowledging that we are earth bound.
Published
There is another deception that I have noticed that is coming more pronounced among the Christians of today. Many a believer has forgotten where their home is. This is strange and confusing for the scriptures are very clear as to where our home is,...
Eschatology Speculations today s strong Delusion
Published
The great strong delusion that is encompassing Christendom at present as the world draws to its close is its fascination and intrigue of the end times. It seems as if mankind is programmed to search high and low to know the mysteries and secrets of...
strange fire is anathema to god
Published
There are two aspects of God that today's generation of Christians have 'watered down' until these characteristics of Gods have been marginalized. Many of the older saints from the 19thC. would be horrified to listen to the way we speak of...
many who say i believe can be under a delusion
Published
I can predict that this series on deception will not have a huge readership, clicks and comments as such a topic has been pushed to the back water in favour of endless speculation about the end times, code words, mysteries and hidden meanings in the...
Lovers of the Truth
Published
They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness....
the struggle against being bewitched
Published
I was reading a book of fiction the other day which outlined a plot by Israel to deceive the president of the USA by conning the US navy to launch a nuclear strike against Iraq. In this way Israel would escape the repercussions but would have dealt a...
spiritual battles against deception
Published
Sad but true fact. Many of our church goers who attend places of worship in the so called developed western word have no concept of the battles that they as born again believers will face. We are told that our struggle is not against our fellow...
confounding and confusing spiritual struggles
Published
Many believers do not know or are not aware of the fact that once we are born again we are exposed to Satan the arch enemy of God. Because the Son of God now lives in our hearts for we have stepped out of the Kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of...
our battles with temptation
Published
This not an easy subject to teach, for from my perspective the scriptures are not as clear as other doctrines, which I suppose could well be the intention of God. But since the earliest of times mankind has attempted to dabble in the dark mysteries to...
finally be strong in the lord
Published
I am sure all you have read the opening title to this blog have a fair idea what my theme is today for the above words introduce us to one of the best known passages in the NT. Ephesians 6 with its military theme has always held a fascination for me...
adopted by god what does this mean?
Published
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12 NIV Have we stopped to contemplate the significance of this verse? God does not give away His rights lightly for he is a jealous...
Let me Introduce my Father.
Published
As I have grown in my Christian walk, which has not been a smooth walk but disjointed in 'fits and starts,' I have realized how easily we read the scriptures with doctrinal blinkers on. At other times we have the all prevailing habit of taking...
His Suffering and our Agony
Published
Just as there are three temptations that Jesus encountered so there are three agonies that Jesus endured in the garden of Gethsemane. There is no way that we can comprehend the suffering that Jesus encountered as the Devil flung all his resources at...
new birth and cross carrying
Published
Being born from above is well beyond the understanding of any of us. We may be the most respected and influential of biblical scholars but we will never grasp the results of redemption. We may understand all mysteries of the Bible but we will never...
his cross and our cross
Published
Once we come to the conclusion that there is a theological difference between Sin and Sins, and believe me, such thought agrees with the scriptures we can begin to think like God intends us to, and hence understand his work on the Cross. Sin is...
take up your cross o sinner
Published
Ever since Kirk @blessings2you posted a blog about how we each have a cross to bear I have been haunted by the phrase; 'take up your cross,' for I am sure we really do not know the full implications of this command. I am on safe ground when I...
the fatherhood of god
Published
One of the principle tasks of Jesus included not only forgiveness and freedom from sin but to introduce us to the God of the Old Testament, as our Father. This was such a radical concept that many of the Jewish leaders could not envisage the God of...
The Learning of a true Disciple
Published
There are two methods to learning the secrets of God. No, I will re phrase that; for most people there is only one methodology to coming to the knowledge of the Most High. We are familiar with the learning of doctrines, catechisms, facts of the Bible...
finding rest in god
Published
I had a bad night last night as I seemed to be awake most of the night unable to rest and go to sleep. I am sure that I am not alone with this dilemma. But thankfully this does not happen to me often but when it does I tend to worry. As I lay there in...
putting to death
Published
Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old selfwith its practices and have put on the new self,which is being renewedin knowledge in the image of its Creator. Col 3:9-10 Far too many believers are a 'walking lie,' for by their...
Renewing our Covenant
Published
I feel that many of us are what I call 'lazy Christians,' in that we do not take our walk with Christ very seriously. If we scratched the surface of our belief we would find very little dedication and commitment to the gospel. The scriptures...
god s word underestimated
Published
Do not trifle with the word of God, for if you do so, you do so at your peril. I have come to experience the power and truth that is wrapped up in the word of God. 'For it is written' is one of the weapons that we have at our disposal, for we...
We are not our Own, but we think we are.
Published
God has drawn this verse to my mind from 1 Corinthians 6:29 NIV You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. As the days draw near to a close of the return of the Son of Man this truth will become buried...
