Unbelief

In every dispensation, unbelief has sent men to hell in their sins.

Israel under Christ’s earthly ministry had to believe He is the Messiah, the Son of God.

“I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” ~ John 8:24

The world during the dispensation of Grace has to believe in his death for their sins, his burial and resurrection.  Has one noticed how denominationalists have a tendency to emphasis the blood of Christ and ignore his resurrection as if it is of no consequence?

“Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how SAY some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:  And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.” ~ 1 Corinthians 15:12-14

“And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.” ~ 1 Corinthians 15:17

Under the dispensation of the law, the sin of blasphemy amounts to nothing but apostasy which is as a direct result of unbelief.

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.” ~ Hebrews 6:4-6

I have learnt from experience that when apostates maul scripture, particularly the gospel, it’s obvious they are not walking by faith.  The end result is inevitable and will be revealed in time.  It always is.  It might take years for the end result of their folly to manifest itself, but it eventually will because of the law of sowing and reaping.

Some will give up on the faith of Christ altogether, others will turn back to the weak and beggarly elements of the law, others will become full-blown hyperdispensationalists, while others will turn to Universalism… as can already be noted of some.  This is where Bible mauling, man following-man pleasing, scripture twisting and leaning on one’s own understanding leads one…

Since I no longer wish to be privy to their scripture mauling, not to mention their ignorance and pride, I shall leave them to their own devices, praying they will be blameless on the day of Christ… and a warning to people that there are two groups of Right Dividers in particular on Facebook that one should beware of:

1.  Those who fall under Richard Jordan’s Shorewood Bible Church and Grace School of the Bible who promote Kenosis.

2.  Then there are those who are followers of Bullinger, in essence, Acts 28 theology, of who Atwood is basically the head honcho and who also  has shares in Truth Time Radio.

If one wants to know who all is associated with these people, all one has to do is take note of who preaches at their conferences, which apparently has become rather secretive of late.

Furthermore there are disagreements and splits happening among the two groups, in line with some who have uncovered yet another “long lost Pauline truth”.  “Cor blimey” in layman’s terms and what Paul called ” a new thing” in Acts 17:21.

If one thinks the devil isn’t active amongst Right Dividers, be assured he is, especially amongst unstable RDers, after all, it is his job to hide or twist the Truth…

Out of the two groups, the Acts 28 hybrids seem to be the most ignorant, what with women warriors, “truth seekers”, flat earthers, infantile attitudes (“I will show you!”), blah, blah, blah…..  it’s one huge snooze…. “fake it until you make it”? They also use big words such as “cognitive dissonance” and don’t know themselves what it means, steeped to the hilt in conspiracy theories….

The other group seem to be the “scholars”.  “What we gonna do tonight, Brain?”   “Take over the world!”  and in the interim….there is Jan Edward Wilbourn…  still trying to make sense of it all, leaning on his own understanding, telling people to post in love while he flips out every 2 seconds…. seriously dude, you shouldn’t even be teaching…. I don’t hate you, I just think you’re a “tad” confused and should leave the Bullingerite Party and learn some sound doctrine.

“But there will be no-one to fellowship with if I mark and avoid all these people”.

Welcome to the fellowship of his suffering… Philippians 3:10.

Form a new church with likeminded believers sans the dung of Kenosis and Bullinger.

Bullingerism is Confusing

“…. they do not believe that the forgiveness of sins was 2000 years ago when Christ died for our sinswas buried and was raised again the third day for our justification.” ~ Mary Deanovic

First they accuse us of receiving the forgiveness of sins through faith, saying it’s wrong…  then they accuse us of not believing (having faith) that Christ died for our sins almost 2000 years ago…

Do these people even know what they believe?

“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” ~ 1 Corinthians 14:33

 

Ignorance Concerning The Basics Of Salvation

I am shocked, mortified and simultaneously horrified (but then again, not) that some who teach Right Division are ignorant to the fact that the twelve apostles and their followers were also IN CHRIST, and that before Paul because of their belief in the Kingdom Gospel.  If they weren’t in Christ before Paul, what existed prior to Acts 9, a vacuum?

“Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellowprisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.” ~ Romans 16:7

Sadly, “those who were in Christ before Paul” has now become the new proof-text of the slippery downhill slide into never-never land that unbelievers too are in Christ because they all received the forgiveness of their sins 2000 years ago at the Cross, even though they weren’t present at the time to receive it…

This from a familial offshoot of the doctrinal mess that so happens to be the “Chattanooga choo choo”.

Is that the Chattanooga choo choo?
Track twenty-nine
Boy, you can gimme a shine
I can afford
To board a Chattanooga choo choo
I’ve got my fare
And just a trifle to spare”

 

 

 

 

 

Whilst I Was Spying Out Your Liberty 😭

“Pardon me” for thinking logically through your liberty because it just doesn’t make any sense to me… especially as it concerns the gospel…. and for those who say I do not have a life…. my life is hid with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3).  Christ is my life, scripture is my life…. I couldn’t think of anything more interesting and exciting.

When some men (and women) fail miserably at exegesis….  and faith is considered a work or agent for the forgiveness of one’s sins… what comes to mind is this:

Faith:

“… which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved,…” 1 Corinthians 15:1-2

One of the objects of one’s faith according to the gospel:

1.  “…. how that Christ died for our sins..” 1 Corinthians 15:3

The reason Christ died for one’s sins was in order for them to be forgiven, and the gospel tells one to have faith in “how that Christ died for our sins”.

If faith was not necessary to receive the forgiveness of one’s sins, it would be pointless incorporating it into the good news dispensed to the Apostle Paul.

The gospel would then read as follows:

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how  he rose from the dead for your justification”.

 

 

 

 

A Stumbling Block And Foolishness

At this time, God is longsuffering, making known the riches of his glory to all men.

“What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, ENDURED with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?” ~ Romans 9:22-24

Dealing with denominationalists and cults is actually dealing with people who have put themselves under the law like the Jews who sought righteousness by the law, that is to say, they sought salvation by their good works, their own righteousness… therefore today, Paul’s gospel and Pauline doctrine is a stumbling block or foolishness to them. Denominationalists perceive themselves to be the “new Jews” and adhere to the law.

Today, salvation by faith alone without works is a stumbling stone to most followers of mainline denominational Christianity, cults and all religions.. instead of being obedient to God and obtaining righteousness through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ’s finished work on the Cross for their sins and his resurrection on the third day… they ignorantly choose to rely on themselves, needing to be in control of their own salvation.

“Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;” ~ Romans 9:32

“What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.” ~ Romans 9:30

The Gentiles did not follow after righteousness, they were mostly rank heathens who worshipped idols.

“But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;” ~ 1 Corinthians 1:23

 

 

Lordship Salvationists

If one wants to know how bad Man really is, all one has to do is read the Bible.

The guys who profess to be saved by God’s grace, yet add their filthy rags to the salvation transaction….

“But we are all as an unclean thing , and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” ~ Isaiah 64:6

So what do Lordship Salvationists do with the Saints at Corinth? Ignore them? “But, but, but…..” Does Paul ever tell the Corinthians that they lost their salvation because of their behaviour?

“Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:” ~ 1 Corinthians 1:2

Problems, problems, problems… personally, I think that if the epistle to the Corinthians was written today, it would aptly be called “The Epistle to the Facebookians”.

“For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.” ~ 1 Corinthians 1:11

“And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.” ~ 1 Corinthians 3:1

Yet, Paul refers to them as babes – carnal, being fed milk, which today would in all likelihood be Facebook memes.

Most Facebookians cannot discern this ~

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” ~ Ephesians 4:31-32

In tandem with this ~

“To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.” ~ 1 Corinthians 5:5

“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” ~ Romans 16:17

Probably because they all have their very own ” Big Teddy Bear in the sky who doesn’t block anyone on Facebroke, but then gets really mean because he sends people to hell with all their sins forgiven….  except one, that is ~ unbelief.

Think on it:

Their Big Teddy in the sky sends unbelievers to hell because of one sin, and they call the universal forgiveness of 99% of their sins, “love” or “grace”….

One word: Gullible.

Neither do they understand the following verse:

“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” ~ 2 Timothy 4:2

Facebookians as a whole do not understand what the word “longsuffering” means, they refer to it as “going on and on and on and I just cannot stand it anymore!”…

These folk are not faithful to the faith of Christ dispensed to the Apostle Paul by the ascended Christ…

“From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;” ~ 1 Timothy 1:6

Most post personal opinion without any scripture whatsoever, or if and when they do, they wrest it.

If one does not believe Christ rose from the dead on the third day, one is still in one’s sins, is wrested to read, “but Christ did resurrect on the third day, so everyone’s sins are forgiven…”

Oi. vey.  Makes one wonder, doesn’t it?

He did, but not everyone believes it, so they are still in their sin…. hence the reason Paul said, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;” (1 Corinthians 15:1)

The Corinthians stood in the gospel Paul preached to them, however, at some point they swerved, “Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?” (1 Corinthians 15:12)

“For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” ~ Romans 16:18

Their Big Teddy of Farcebook Land, isn’t the God of the Bible.

“For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.” ~ 2 Corinthians 11:4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Possibility of Receiving The Forgiveness Of Sins

The word “may” is a verb, either expressing possibility or is used to ask or give permission.
—————-

“I cooked for you that you may eat”

Whether you eat or not has no baring on whether or not I cooked..

The “may” is not conditional.

Acts 26:18 KJB
To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they [MAY] receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

*The “may” is not conditional.” ~ Zane Newitt

versus:

“But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.  Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.” ~ Romans 6:17-18

So who do you believe?  Zane’s words….. or Paul’s words?

If one cooks, another still has a choice to eat it or not.   Just as Christ provided the forgiveness of their sins, men choose either to believe it or not.

————-

“For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ,but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.  For your obedience is come abroad unto all men . I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.”  ~ Romans 16:18-19

 

Sound Doctrine and Grace Believers Are Under Attack

As Grace believers, we believe Christ provided the forgiveness for our sins almost 2000 years ago and one receives it today through faith by the cross – by Jesus Christ – by the gospel as confirmed by scripture (Ephesians 2:16; Ephesians 3:6; Ephesians 1:5)

Making the following statement a blatant false accusation:

“They are so close to the preaching of the gospel of our salvation and even call themselves grace believers, but they do not believe that the forgiveness of sins was 2000 years ago when Christ died for our sins, was buried and was raised again the third day for our justification. That’s how Satan works, folks. Don’t be fooled by it.”  ~ Mary Deanovic

————————–

“If one is not forgiven unless and until he believed the gospel of Christ as some wrongly preach, Paul would have worded Romans 1:16 to convey that. It would have said, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God UNTO FORGIVENESS to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” but that’s not what it says! It says the gospel of Christ is the power of God UNTO SALVATION to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek”.

FORGIVENESS WAS A DONE DEAL BY THE CROSSWORK OF CHRIST IN OUR STEAD AND GOD RAISING HIM FROM THE DEAD VICTORIOUS!” ~ Mary Deanovic

versus:

“But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being THEN made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.” ~ Romans 6:17-18

So whose words do you believe?  Paul’s words…. or Mary’s words?

“Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)” ~ Galatians 1:1

 

 

 

 

Acts 28 Ministries To Avoid, Take IV…

The late Charles Baker and his followers.

Acts 28 doctrine can be subtle and sometimes poses as Mid-Acts Dispensationalism.

Believing Paul had two sendings is Acts 28 theology.  If it croaks like a frog…… guess what?  It’s a frog….

Believing Paul preached more than one gospel also croaks like a frog…. croak, croak, croak, croak…..

Strange thing about this theology is that the gospel they profess to believe is found in first Corinthians, which so happens to be a pre-prison epistle…. “written to the Jews”… oi vey…. the very people who were nigh and obviously not far off…. meaning, they were close to God because they were proselytes…. so, if they were nigh, why preach the gospel to them in the first place?

Crazy stuff.

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” ~ 2 Corinthians 11:3

There Is A Very Good Reason Why Paul Said This

“Not a NOVICE, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.” ~ 1 Timothy 3:6

Pride has been the downfall of many a neophyte or fledgling… who tries to teach others… thinking he has finally arrived… with a Baptist seminary degree under the belt, a video recorder and a whiteboard to boot… ready, steady….. go….?

Personally, nothing reeks more of ego than a self-proclaimed teacher with a whiteboard…. and if it’s a woman it looks even more ridiculous.

Are Baptists the new Right Dividers because they preach OSAS, but what most fail to understand, Baptists believe Israel’s kingdom gospel for their salvation (they also believe there’s only one gospel in the entire Bible).

Paul’s blueprint for the leaders of the church, which is mostly ignored today…

“This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be

blameless,

the husband of one wife,

vigilant,

sober,

of good behaviour,

given to hospitality,

apt to teach;

Not given to wine,

no striker,

not greedy of filthy lucre; but

patient,

not a brawler,

not covetous;

One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;  (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Likewise must the deacons be

grave,

not doubletongued,

not given to much wine,

not greedy of filthy lucre;

Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.” ~ 1 Timothy 3:1-10

Blameless.  Morally upright, irreproachable…. not to blame.

When Paul says a Bishop must be the husband of one wife, he means he must be married to one woman at a time, in other words, he must not be a bigamist or a polygamist.

Any guess why Paul stated why bishops and deacons must not be greedy for filthy lucre….. he could have used the word “mammon” instead, but “lucre” means it’s money obtained through dishonorable means… and the use of the word “filthy” to describe it (adverb), shows how it is perceived…… slimy and disgusting. Ill gotten gains.

There is nothing more dishonourable than standing behind a pulpit and fleecing people out of money, money for which they have more than likely worked hard for, to buy oneself a mansion, designer clothing, luxury cars, fancy trips overseas and gourmet food, then tell the very ones who one has fleeced, “God has blessed me”, when they in turn are struggling to survive….

Why don’t they (modern day denominational Pastors) practise what they preach and give tenfold, or even a hundred fold of their salaries to charity in order to reap the benefits of God’s grace when “sowing a seed”?

Because they know it doesn’t work?  Otherwise they would be doing it? Where is the faith they accuse everyone else of not having?

The reason why my late father wanted nothing to do with the church was because they were always asking for money….   the devil’s ministers of righteousness, among others, give Christianity a bad name.

Giving money to ministries today is based purely on the heart of the giver, and should be given exclusively to those who teach sound Pauline truth.

“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give ; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.” ~ 2 Corinthians 9:7

Angel of Light

“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.,” ~ 2 Corinthians 11:14

People are surprised to learn that the area where Satan is most active and prominent today is behind the pulpits of mainline assemblies, hence the reason he is called an angel of light, light meaning spiritual awakening or the opening of one’s spiritual eyes… religion….

He even has his own ministers, and to the untrained eye, they seem to be very nice, upstanding and good people.  The Bible calls those standing behind pulpits who do his will, “ministers of righteousness” because they preach works or performance based gospels of “do, change, repent and pray” in order to obtain and maintain salvation.

So, does it come as any surprise that those who do charitable works, repent of their sin, pray to God to save them, forgive them or have mercy on their souls, that they are seen as good people – righteous people –  by the world?

“Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” ~ 2 Corinthians 11:15

His ministers preach false gospels to keep souls in darkness.  Lost men and women with corrupt minds cannot discern between a light bulb that has been turned on and shines in the darkness and the sun shining where no darkness exists at all – so is the comparison between the light of Satan’s false salvation and the light of the glorious gospel of Christ.

People are even more surprised to learn the devil is also present in the very assemblies where the word rightly divided is preached and taught.

For Saints, he has the same modus operandi.  He works through saved people who have become enemies of the cross who twist scripture, the end result being a distinct lack of edification; no spiritual growth; lifelong babes in Christ; defenceless warriors.

There is so much milk flowing in Grace assemblies, that one can be forgiven for thinking one is on a dairy farm….

Satan even has his own Bibles, namely the NIV, Amplified, New King James, New American Standard, etc, etc, etc – there are far too many to name them all here.  If it isn’t an Authorised King James Bible, it isn’t a Bible period.  Isn’t it par for the course for Bible correctors to call King James Bible only believers “devils”?  It goes without saying, the spirit behind it is clearly obvious….

It has always been Satan’s agenda to corrupt or twist God’s words.

“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” ~ Genesis 3:1

Arminianism, Calvinsm, Methodism, Roman Catholicism, Baptist assemblies, Church of Christ….. et al – all denominations, once again, too many to mention here, are all Satan’s religious assemblies which serve only to confuse, give false hope, keep people tied up in rituals and traditions – working to obtain salvation.

When I see how most Grace Assemblies resemble Baptist assemblies, it sickens me…  while another larger Grace Assembly in particular is nothing but a mainline denomination because of what it practises and preaches…. both have one thing in common though, they “Play Church”.  The baking of cookies, cakes and scones, instead of the preaching of sound doctrine is seen as a labour of love…..

The fact remains : One is not preaching sound doctrine if one is promoting and preaching a subtle Calvinist coated gospel….

Grace Assemblies who preach Calvinism (everyone’s sins are forgiven before they are even born (God’s common grace), while only people who believe the gospel are saved (God’s special grace) should be avoided…..

Calvinism which so happens to be rife in Baptist assemblies…. is preached by Grace teachers who were once Baptist preachers and probably still are…. now….. this is how Satan works during this current dispensation……. subtle….. hardly noticeable…. not questioned….. for the simple reason that what these men preach sounds good – and right – besides, they are some of the most even tempered people on planet earth….. friendly and accommodating….. how can nice people who do so much good, be so wrong?

Most people out there look at the person – the vessel,  instead of looking at and taking notice of what comes out of the vessel….

“……The reason it is not a sin issue is not because all sins are already forgiven, but that forgiveness is available to all. The issue is only if they will receive it through faith in the gospel of Christ. If your family is starving due to lack of food and I provide a ton of groceries on your front porch, you no longer have a food issue, but you are still starving until you open the door and cook the food – i.e. you must receive it by faith that it is yours. Without faith people die in their sins… and people only ever go to hell because of sins, otherwise God is unjust. (Again, the calvinistic mind has God electing people to go to hell due to his unconditional election, so hell is just an option, sins or justice not being necessary.)”

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” ~ 2 Corinthians 11:3
