The Apostle Paul’s claims and his ministry

1 Corinthians 1:17 – For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

  1. He wasn’t sent to baptize (with water) as most churches do today.
  2. He was sent to preach the gospel, yet most today are ignorant as to what the gospel is which saves men’s souls.

Followers of the Apostle Paul?   No.

1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:2 – But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

  1. He renounced the hidden things of dishonesty.
  2. Didn’t walk in craftiness
  3. Didn’t handle the word of God deceitfully.

Proof that he was an Apostle sent of God:

2 Corinthians 12:12 – Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.

1 Corinthians 2:1-3 – And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.Not with excellency of speech or of wisdom.

Yet modern-day preachers come with excellency of speech and worldly, man-made wisdom and want to know everything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

1 Corinthians 2:13 – Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

2 Corinthians 7:2 – Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man.

Wronged no man, corrupted no man and defrauded no man – just told them the truth and nothing but the truth.  A claim institutionalized, denominational christianity cannot make as they defraud, corrupt and wrong men every day.

2 Corinthians 10:10 – For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.

Compare this to most Pastors/Preachers of today whose bodily presence is awe-inspiring and bold, dressed to the nines in expensive suits, being clean shaven, “dressed for success” and whose speech is anything but contemptible – they stroke peoples’ “tail feathers” instead, by telling sinners they are worthy and that salvation comes with a change in lifestyle.

2 Corinthians 12: 7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

Today’s preachers claim to seek the Lord on such things and claim healing of same, yet the Apostle Paul sought God 3 times on this matter and the answer was a resounding NO (and with good reason).

2 Corinthians 10:1 10 Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you:

But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.

Unlike Dale Carnegie or modern-day preachers who claim rudeness of speech to be unloving, Paul told the Corinthians what they needed to hear in no uncertain terms.

1 Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

2 Corinthians 7:Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying of you: I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all our tribulation.

A lesson we can all learn: to be exceeding joyful in all our tribulation because:

Romans 5: And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

TO MAKE ALL MEN SEE…

How does one make a person see the revelation of the mystery, who despises the word “doctrine” and associates it with Marxism or Communism? Especially in lieu of the fact that the Apostle Paul tells us to adorn the doctrine given to him by the ascended Christ, in all things?

How does one make a person see that being a good person won’t get them into heaven, and that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God? People who boast of their own good works for salvation are under the impression that they will soon reach perfection.

How does one make a person see who believes that God still heals peoples’ rotten flesh today, yet consult doctors regarding their own physical or mental ailments? Yet they are unable to see their own contradiction.

How does one make a person see that one’s (corrupt, evil, sinful) thoughts do not lead to one getting diseases and sicknesses, but rather the reason for same is that we live in a sin cursed world, in sin cursed bodies? After all, we are fallen creatures in need of a Saviour, not flesh renewing apostate preachers.

How does one make a person see that God isn’t punishing or judging people today for their sins, but rather that He is pouring out His unmerited favour on mankind, and that it is there for the taking by anyone who believes in Christ’s debt payment for their sins, and that men are responsible for their own shortcomings and failures because they reap in the flesh what they have sown in the flesh?

How does one make a person see who enjoys being entertained in a so-called Church Assembly each Sunday morning? Laughing, easy-going, friendly preachers who do not preach the negativity of being lost and hell-bound for eternity. Paul doesn’t call them Satan’s ministers of RIGHTEOUSNESS for nothing.

How does one make a person see who thinks the Head Pastor of a so-called Church Assembly is untouchable with respect to what he believes and preaches? They draw doctrine from Israel’s Old Covenant to back up their theory of not criticizing or questioning God’s anointed, i.e., the Pastors who liken themselves to Israel’s priests and rabbis in times past.

How does one make a person see who is under the impression that giving to a so-called Church Assembly is the correct thing to do and in so doing one will be financially blessed and protected? So why are they themselves still struggling financially after tithing every Sunday?

How does one make a person see the revelation of the mystery who believes solidly in Psalm 91 for their daily protection? “Ten thousand will fall by your side”. Not likely. It’s more likely that if and when you do encounter one other person with a weapon and you so happen to be empty handed, the outcome will be obvious, need I say more?  Psalm 91, one of Israel’s covenant promises ain’t gonna help ya one iota.

How does one make a person see who is ensconded in Pentecostal euphemisms and judgments like labeling those “bitter” who disagree with their line of thinking and believe it’s not about “legalistic doctrine”, but rather that “it’s about love, holding hands and agreeing with one another” with regard to Bible blending, ignoring or being ignorant with respect to dispensational boundaries and lumping it altogether to form a “happy club” where everyone agrees with one another.

How does one make a person see who upholds a perverted Bible version? After all, perverted Bible perversions dumb down right division, not to mention Christ’s deity, and more often than not these same people profess that middle English is difficult to understand, hence their reason for not acquiring, reading and believing the KJB.

How does one make a person see who thinks attending a so-called Church Assembly every Sunday morning makes them stronger, holy and more spiritual and by the time Sunday afternoon arrives, all holiness and spirituality have conveniently flown out the window because reality has sunk in? These people attend church to obtain their weekly or bi-weekly “Holy Spirit” boost because they run out of “Holy Spirit” rather quickly and need to be refueled quite often so as not to lose their good and happy feelings or even their salvation.

How does one make a person see who thinks that one’s thoughts actually make one the person one is regardless of one’s upbringing and inherent personality traits one is born with? “You are what you think”, as opposed to: you are what you believe. You are a member of the body of Christ, complete, saved and sealed because of what you believe.

You are not a member of the body of Christ because you think you are one because you attend a local Assembly once a week and repent of your sins.

The Apostle Paul is correct. Unsaved men and women are unable to discern spiritual things. Explaining Right Division and Israel’s fall and the raising up of the Apostle Paul by the ascended Christ as a chosen vessel to preach salvation to kings, Gentiles and Jews whose doctrine is mutually exclusive to that of the doctrine given to the twelve, or even to that preached by Christ during His earthly ministry is anathema to them because they think the Apostle Paul’s doctrine emphasizes that of the twelve. “He’s just the 13th guy who was chosen to make it all look pretty” because he talks about love in 1 Corinthians 13 and grace throughout his epistles.

They think you’re the one who is stir crazy, belong to a cult and take pity on you because (a) you do not believe in miracles, (b) you do not believe in interesting stuff like prophecies, Bible codes, God raining down His judgment on nations, or (c) we’re living in the end times, so the Antichrist must already be born and he’s one of the leaders of the Gentile European Union which has absolutely nothing to do with Israel’s prophetic program, but rather everything to do with Atheistic, liberal, self-destructing, political correctness.  (The EU, that is).

Their mantra is most likely to be: “You don’t believe in water baptism? But most churches out there baptize with water”, therefore they are right because they’re in the majority and believe the same thing, which must make you wrong, sorry for you, mate, and all their ministers have attended Bible college and you have not, therefore your doctrine puffs you up, whereas their Bible College education makes them humble.  Read : seducers.

This is why one needs to preach the gospel to these people first and foremost. Unsaved men and women do not have a clue as to what 2 Timothy 2:15 means even when you give them Ephesians 1:13 and Galatians 2:7-9, especially when they have a Bible perversion which dumbs down right division. 2 Timothy 2:15 in Bible perversions state to correctly handle the Word of God, which in essence to them means, to continually wipe the dust off it, Not to throw it around, treating it with respect, not sitting on it and definitely not standing on it, and keeping it in a safe place where it cannot be damaged or be used as a door stopper.

Things become even more difficult when unsaved pew warmers have not read the Bible themselves but simply believe what is preached to them from the pulpit and swallow it hook, line and sinker Sunday after Sunday without question, and if they do read the Bible it’s by way of proof-texting to prove their mixed up doctrine. You can make the Bible confirm anything you believe, hence the reason there are so many denominations because “it says so in the Bible”.

One of the worst things a saved Mid-Acts Pauline Right Dividing Dispensationalist can experience during his or her tenure on this earth is having to experience either the death of an unsaved loved one, or knowing that some, if not all of one’s family, not to mention most men will reject the gospel outright in favour of New Age or vain philisophy preached from the pulpits of either mainline, institutionalised denominationalism or other religions, not to mention that some are Atheists.

 

 

 

 

ABOUT ME AND WHAT I BELIEVE : BECAUSE ETERNITY MATTERS

I am a Mid-Acts Pauline Right Division Dispensationalist.

What does it mean to be a Mid-Acts (Acts 9) Pauline Right Division Dispensationalist?

It means the Bible is progressive revelation. God, although His character and principles remain the same throughout the ages, works differently with people during different dispensations.

DISPENSATION is a Biblical word – Ephesians 3. The Apostle Paul was exclusively given the Dispensation of Grace by the ASCENDED Christ of which He was made the Chief Steward of, to dispense the relevant information on how men could now be saved.

God did not deal the same way with Adam & Eve or Noah as He dealt with the Jews. Adam & Eve were instructed not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil but they failed.

Noah was instructed to build a ship and he obeyed God, the end result being that he and his wife and intermediate family were saved from destruction and went on to populate the earth through his 3 sons, Shem, Ham & Japheth.

Today we are instructed to believe the Gospel and to rightly divide the word of truth – 1 Timothy 2:4; 2; 2 Timothy 2:15.

God called Abram out of Ur of the Chaldees and instructed him to leave his land of birth, and his family, although his nephew Lot and his father accompanied him, and that He (God) would make his (Abraham’s) descendants a great country, a light unto the world and He would bless them. They were made a peculiar people with their own set of laws and commandments.

Abram changed his name to Abraham. He believed God through faith alone and was saved – Genesis 15 and Romans 4. Only afterwards was Abraham circumsized – Genesis 17 and “marked” as sanctified – set apart from the heathen nations and God made a covenant with Him.

PLEASE NOTE : God made a covenant with Abraham, Abraham did not make a covenant with God.

Abraham’s descendants were known as Hebrews because Abram belonged to the Hebrew tribe when he lived in Ur, he was a descendant of Shem, and thus a Semite. Semitic.

The Hebrews were set-apart (sanctified) from the heathens by way of being given a set of commandments and laws – namely, the Levitical Law, and the Priests who oversaw and implemented these laws were from the tribe of Levi, hence the name “Levitical law”.

The Levitical Law of which the Mosaic Law (given to Moses on two tablets of stone) is a part of, is made up of 613 commandments in total, and what did Christ tell the Jews during His earthly ministry to Israel? He said, if you break one of these commandments, you’ve broken them all – all 613. James 2:10; Matthew 5:19.

Matthew, Mark, Luke & John, the four synoptic gospels depict Christ’s earthly ministry which was solely to Israel : Matthew 10:5; Matthew 15:24.

Why did Jesus say what He said in Matthew 15:24 and Matthew 10:5? Because in times past, Israel was the light unto the world, Gentiles could only be saved through protelyzing to her faith, namely Judaism. This is also the very reason why Jesus said this in Matthew 15:26: “But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.”

Only when the Gentile woman in question blessed Israel was she accepted.

Gentiles had to prostelyze or bless Israel in times past in order to be saved. This is not the case today, and nor do we have any claim to Israel’s promises. God chose A land – singular, not many lands, and the land in question in the Bible refers to the Kingdom of Israel which is still future. Her tribulation doctrine lies between Hebrews and Revelation. Her perfect sacrifice is the Lamb of God without spot or blemish, not a bull or a goat or a lamb or a dove as in times past. God will again, in a future time, bring her back into the fold and she will inherit her kingdom on earth.

But Israel had a propensity to always follow the ways of the heathen Gentiles and fell into apostasy, they even crucified their Messiah which was the final rejection of worshipping God and following His ways. Read Acts 28. Hence the reason God sent her prophets – to warn her of her apostasy. Today she isn’t a chosen people, she is saved the same way we are : through faith alone in Christ’s finished work on Calvary’s cross, His burial and His resurrection from the dead on the 3rd day.

Today God is dealing with individual salvation, not nations as in times past. If an individual Jew believes the gospel – he is saved.

Hence the reason why God raised up another Apostle, the Apostle Paul and gave him a different set of “rules” with a different gospel to to that of Israel’s Kingdom gospel, since God had now declared Israel lo-ammi – not His people (Hosea 2), he created an alternative way for the world to receive salvation as He couldn’t give Israel’s Kingdom promises to Gentiles as most of those promises for Israel have not yet been fulfilled, and God doesn’t break His promises as His character and principles never change.

Proof:

Compare Romans 4 to James 2.
Paul says today in the Dispensation of God’s grace we ARE saved (as opposed to will be saved)  by grace through faith without works – Ephesians 2:8-9. What is the object of our faith? The gospel which is noted in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.

How do we know there is more than one gospel (good news) in the Bible? Because we aren’t saved in the same way as Noah was, nor are we saved the same way the Jews were – Galatians 2:7-9. The Gospel of the circumcision was given solely to Israel in order that Gentiles may prostelyze to her faith (times past), and the Gospel of the uncircumcision is given to Gentiles today in order to be saved.

There will however come a time when this dispensation will cease, and God will once again start dealing with Israel and the Kingdom Gospel will come into effect along with their law program.

2 Timothy tells us to rightly divide the word of truth – but what is the word of truth? Ephesians 1:13 tells us what it is. So why does God tell/instruct us to rightly divide the gospel of our salvation? Because there is more than one and we need to believe the right one, the which is in effect during the time we are living.

The Apostle Paul says we are no longer under the law, but under grace. Romans 6:14.

What was the spiritual status of Gentiles under Israel’s Covenant, law-based program? :

Ephesians 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

1) Aliens from the commonwealth of Israel.
2) Strangers from the covenants of promise.

Gentiles in times past had no claim to Israel’s covenants of promise or the commonwealth of Israel – unless they prostelyzed to Judaism.

And yet there are people today who claim all of Israel’s promises and make covenants with Almighty God.

Grace means God’s unmerited favour upon mankind – unmerited means it’s undeserving.  How is His unmerited favour expressed?  In the gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.  It’s the object of my faith.  All we need to believe in order to be saved and heaven bound is to believe how that Christ died for our sins, that he was buried and rose again for our justification. Romans 4:25.

Since His grace is unmerited or undeserving – we cannot work for our salvation; we cannot work ourselves into heaven. All we can and must  do is believe His payment for our sins on Calvary’s cross and His resurrection.

Justification means being declared holy or righteous in the eyes of God. It’s what He did, not what we can do or have done.

Once we have believed the gospel we receive God’s imputed righteousness – Philippians 3:9; Galatians 2:16

Once you belief what Christ did for you and you rightly divide the Word of Truth – you will finally understand God’s plan and purpose for your life, and you will also understand the Bible. It will all make sense to you.

Thank you for reading my blog.  My prayer is for you to be saved and come unto the knowledge of truth – 1 Timothy 2:4.  Because eternity matters.

Modern Day Corinthians –

Ever wondered why the Apostle Paul says this to the Corinthians:

1 CORINTHIANS 4:

10 We are fools for Christ’s sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.

11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;

12 And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:

13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.

12 And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:

12 And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:

13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.

14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.

 


Members of the body of Christ who do not preach the gospel or who have gone off the rails and are preaching another gospel, who do not live righteously in Christ and who are conformed to the world are :

“Wise in Christ”

“Are strong”

“Are honourable”

In the world’s eyes, from the world’s point of view, that is –

because they don’t make waves, they don’t stir, aren’t controverisal, and probably the only thing they stir are unsound doctrine and martinis.  The world loves unsound doctrine  and conformance to their standards – all one has to do is take a look at what’s taught in denominational churches today to confirm this, hence they are “wise in Christ”.

If one can ever pick up the Apostle Paul’s sarcasm, it is in these verses.

If he is genuinely calling them wise, strong and honourable, why does he say:

14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.

One can see this clearly today, people always think you want to shame them because they do feel shame when called out on their doctrine, but in effect it’s a warning.  But today they glory in their shame – in being wrong – because it makes waves (the wrong variety).

Paul, the Chief Steward of the mystery revealed to him by the ascended Christ, who should have been smug, elitist, had a lot of friends, a home and should’ve been everyone’s buddy, in reality was this:

13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.

Why do saved people always try to garner the acceptance of both their peers and the world?  Because they conform, if they don’t “then there ‘s something wrong”.  They see safety in numbers and soundness in numbers – if the majority believe it, it must be right.   Like dead fish going with the flow.  If the majority agree on something – then it must be right.   Makes you wonder, if they were born in the Apostle Paul’s day – he didn’t have dozens of friends – “ooh, there must be something wrong with him”, he preached against Judaism, a performance based gospel and those conformed to the world, so one can only imagine that thousands today would’ve rejected him – even those in the Mid-Acts Dispensationalist Camp – i.e., the “wise”, the “honourable”, and the “strong”.

The Apostle Paul wasn’t a conformist, and yet you profess to follow him?

PERFECTIONISM (??)

This warped doctrine teaches that there is a class of Christians who achieve moral perfection in this life, that is, total victory over sin.  Certain Grace? Believers have taken it and modified it though, but a a fish by any other name still smells fishy.

There is elitism in perfectionism because smugness and pride have a way of creeping in, and in effect it corrupts the mind instead of renewing it.  Imagine how deluded a person must be to imagine that they’ve actually reached a state of sinlessness.

What is the mindset of those who propagate and adhere to this canker?

  1. Gross over-estimation of one’s own moral performance, and
  2. Under-estimation of God’s grace and/or how He operates in this current dispensation.

Perfectionism seeks to distance itself from (this big word) : antinomianism, which means the opposite of perfection, a good example of antinomianism is when someone is newly saved and they believe or are under the impression that saved people can behave like heathens, the Corinthians are a good example, but this is not antinomianism per se, antinomianism  is when this attitude/belief is a permanent “fixture” in a saved person’s life, and believe me, the majority are antinomianists.

The irony of perfectionism is that it inevitably comes full circle to antinominism, why? because these people annul God’s grace by seeking their own (sinless) perfection.  They reduce God’s grace/righteousness to the level of their own performance, and in the process of doing so, they lie not only to themselves but to others as well.

The true mark of the ongoing sanctification (of our earthly bodies) while we’re on this planet is to study the word of truth rightly divided, absorb it, then act upon it.   This is part of God’s plan for our lives as saved people, to come unto the knowledge of the truth as per 1 Timothy 2:4.  In layman’s terms it can be called building the innerman to take charge over the outerman, to dominate the outerman.  He (the innerman) won’t always succeed over the outerman, but as he grows stronger with study, which takes time (longer than 100 hours (wink)), he will eventually dominate, another term for it is MATURING SPIRITUALLY.  Example: by studying, we will know we must crucify the flesh and turn away from temptation, so this would inevitably be heeding one’s conscience and thinking before doing something you do not feel comfortable with, that you know is wrong.  The question one needs to ask oneself is:  does it glorify God?  Does propagating and believing heresy glorify God?  Does associating with certain people glorify God?  Whereas antinomianists will think and say : I’m saved anyway, it doesn’t matter what I say or do.

Those who think they’ve reached perfectionism are in reality far from being perfect.  They are basically perfect by their own standards, in their own eyes.  Perfect people do not deny the gospel for one and perfect people do not transgress dispensational boundaries to work out their inheritance as saved members of the body of Christ by using Israel’s inheritance as a basis, i.e., the firstborn son and applying same doctrine to the body of Christ – that is not rightly dividing the word of truth.

The Apostle Paul clearly states in 2 Timothy 2:15 that to be approved unto God, one needs to rightly divide the word of truth, to study in order to obtain the goal of rightly dividing the word of truth, which further tells me that a person can be saved and not be approved unto God.  Saved and approved aren’t the same things.  The end result of being approved is a reward or rewards (in heaven), and the end result of not being approved is having one’s bad works (during one’s tenure on this earth) burnt up at the Judgment Seat of Christ and receiving no reward, which would include failure to rightly divide the word of truth.

Perfectionists so-called do not understand that one does not deny the Judgment Seat of Christ.  It’s there in 1 Corinthians 3, and it was specifically made known to the Corinthians because they behaved like heathens because they were still on spiritual milk, meaning they were babes in Christ, still carnal, i.e., in the flesh.  In other words the flesh dominated the innerman, yet Paul called them Saints, said they were sanctified (in the spirit) as part of their salvation, also justified (declared holy/righteous) (1 Corinthians 6:11).

Perfectionism isn’t posting scripture on Facebook and stating you have now arrived or making out as if you have arrived.  Perfectionism doesn’t exist on this planet in any form or shape or size.  Spiritual maturity is being realistic, humble in your intentions (e.g., not wishing grace and peace sarcastically and using it as ammo against those you argue with or those you disdain).  That never worked for me.    I prefer being honest.  “Grace and peace!!” and off they trot in a huff.  If that’s your version of grace and peace, well thanks, but really, no thanks!

Stilted conversations and make pretend were and still aren’t my ball game.  I’m  down-to-earth – I don’t do elitism period.  I’m a nobody who became a somebody purely because of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ’s finished work on Calvary’s cross and His resurrection.  I am not a somebody due to my own doing, and hence I am eternally grateful to Him for His grace because I could have been a nobody with a false perception of being a somebody.

I kinda became allergic to the pretentious grace and peace brigade on Pentecostal forums, who play the “perfection” card really well.  “Answer my question with either a “yes” or a “no” – self-elected lawyers who win an argument by being totally underhanded – so much for grace and peace.  Then you get a repeat performance of it on Fakebook and Grace forums and Groups.

There are more answers to questions than either “yes” or “no” – there’s also “maybe”, there’s “yes, but”, there’s “no, but”, there’s “I think so”, and there’s “I’m not sure”.

There’s our salvation, and then there’s our service – our reasonable service:

Romans 12:1

Reasonable : appropriate, fair, moderate, which is the opposite of going overboard with so-called perfectionism, two salvations, two blessings and condemning the body of Christ in the process.

Your body needs to be a living sacrifice – in other words : no fornication (which means no sex before marriage; sleeping around; or it being used for any immoral purposes), parading around with hardly any clothing on – but I guess that doesn’t count in their eyes because you cannot tell them anything, why?  because they’re already perfect.  After all, perfect people cannot be judged…..

How many of the so-called perfectionists out there can say their bodies are a living sacrifice to God during their tenure on this earth?

 

 

 

 

Shock

Why are most people shocked when they hear that someone has died?

I mean, it’s the end result of every human being on this planet.

In our ignorance, do we not realise that some people die young, while others will die tragically.

Are we too busy with our “important” lives on this planet so as not to expect or think that people will die, some soon, some later?

Had a conversation recently with someone who stated that they aren’t worthy of going to heaven, but when they die, they want to set up a meeting with God to set the record straight.  Like they’re pompous enough to think God sets up appointments with lost sinners, and that He doesn’t realise their motives, not to mention that they’re still clothed in their own righteousness, not wanting to  believe the gospel of their salvation.

The Queen is already 90.  How much longer do you think she and Prince Phillip will be around?  She might have lived a good life, but with age comes heart failure, cancer or organ failure in general.  The heart, liver, kidneys and lungs can only work for so long before they are inclined to give in.

There are however people who live until the ripe age of 120 – they’re more the exception than the rule, and some of them drink moonshine, smoke and don’t exactly watch what they eat as most of them are too poor, most of them haven’t done any regimented form of exercise in their lives either.  I hope I’m not one of them – I personally think that living that long is pointless.  I don’t want to live to be more than 70 on this planet, in this world, and it has mainly got to do with the state of this world, ignorance and inanity being at the top of my list of things which totally annoy me.  Ignorance and inanity which equate to rank unbelief.

God is some peoples’ “happy button”.  Unhappy?  Press the “happy button” as God is just waiting on your praise, He can’t exist without it.

Most cannot bring themselves to believe something as simple as the gospel.  It’s a case scenario where something is far too simple to believe, “no, it cannot be that easy”.  They’d rather pay pennance, bloody themselves up, get hurt, remain confused, go on a life-long tangent trying to figure out what the gospel really is, and expect countless blessings for “praising His name”.  Want something?  Praise His name. Like God is totally ignorant and cannot see when He is being used.        Want to please Him?  Then behave.  He’s just waiting for you to “cleanse yourself” because Christ couldn’t do it for you on Calvary’s cross.

What an insult it must be to Him when people profess to speak in tongues, take Israel’s covenant promises for themselves, “heal the sick” and revive the dead.  Have you ever come across ONE person who has been resurrected from the dead?  No?  Nor have I.

It’s not easy knowing the truth, in fact it’s downright difficult in that you know where people are going when they die, and the majority of them are hell bound, even the so-called church-goers, even the ones who are currently being persecuted in the Middle East for their so-called Christian beliefs.  Only a fool will try and kid himself into thinking that most who call themselves Christian are heaven bound.  It’s difficult in that you don’t fit in anywhere in this world, most people think you’re totally crackers for believing what you do.  Some think you belong to a Cult, others think you’ve lost the plot and you don’t even believe the earth is flat or that your appliances are spying on you.

Would you as a Mid-Acts Dispensationalist trade your life for someone else’s who is rich, successful in this world, and lives an enchanted life?

I wouldn’t because my inheritance is far greater and supersedes anything they have or could imagine.  I’ll live eternity reconciled to God ion heavenly places.  Their glory is now, and in the flesh – short-lived.  My glory is eternal in the spirit, with a new body.

All God’s people? can live in unity? During this current dispensation….. really??

Those so-called Christians at Trump’s inauguration, including the man himself are Kingdom Now adherents.

Do good and the kingdom is yours, and not only that, but you will succeed and live a blessed life on this planet.  ??

It’s Replacement Theology, and it reads like this : because Israel rejected her Messiah (King), today’s Christians now replace her and claim her Covenant theology (old and new), forever.

“We are God’s people currently bringing in His kingdom on earth”.

It’s all about us.  Me, myself and I.   “Look what I’m doing to bring in God’s kingdom”.  Like He hasn’t got the power to do it Himself in His own time.

Matthew 5 which was read (from a perverted Bible version) at Trump’s inauguration is Israel’s Blue Print for the Millennial Kingdom, in other words, it’s still future.

The Song of Solomon is Israel’s relationship with God in times past – it’s Covenant theology.  No Gentile, unless they prostelyzed in times past could rightly claim Israel’s Old Covenant promises for themselves.

The Lord’s Prayer – The Little Flock’s prayer during the tribulation – which is still future.

Experience has taught me that Kingdom Now proponents (like those you see on TBN) also die of cancer or other diseases, have absolutely no peace of mind, are white sepulchres, i.e., their outerman holds to a thread of human decency (otherwise known as self-righteousness), but their innerman is rotten, meaning he is unsaved – they are outward looking and build the flesh instead of the innerman, and when it comes to the building of the outerman it is almost instantaneous, whereas building the innerman takes a life-time, besides, they are unable to build the innerman on Israel’s Covenant doctrine because they are devoid of the Unction.  It’s the same as hereticks in the Grace Movement trying to build the innerman – it’s futile as the innerman cannot be strengthened or built by heresies.  In a nutshell :  it’s pretentious.

Trump follows the agenda of the god of this world – building the kingdom now in utter futility.

I can’t believe there are actually Grace Believers out there who purport to be saved and state that their prayers were answered by the election of Donald Trump and that God made him POTUS.

I can’t believe there are actually Grace Believers out there who think that when Grace Believers preach heresies, that they have a different way of preaching the gospel.

Whatever happened to having high standards?

These are people who judge others for being unloving and they cannot even preach the truth, yet love is preaching the truth, and love is making sure you are preaching the truth, and love is not being conformed to this present evil world.

Sometimes I wonder.  No, actually I always wonder about these people and the only conclusion I ever come to is that they are in their comfort zone, i.e., one of low standards.

The opposite of courage isn’t cowardice, it’s conformity.  Even a dead fish can go with the flow.

Most want to be part of the crowd.  No-one likes to be ridiculed, especially not for their beliefs.
