THE ONE WORLD ORDER CATASTROPHY

Have you noticed how the obvious collusion between liberal politicians and the liberal press has escalated since President Trump was elected?  If you haven’t noticed, you’re either dead, or you don’t care?  As I look at things in the news media, how the attacks on the president are growing; how the Powers of Darkness are deliberately drawing up battle lines between blacks and whites; between liberals and conservatives; and anything else that might (wrongfully) establish a need for martial law in our country, and in the world, the hair goes up on the back of my neck.  Although the recent escalation of character assassination on President Trump makes more obvious what is happening, this has been going on for many years. Political Machines like the “Americans for Democratic Action,” as far back as Hubert Humphrey and George McGovern, have been at work to firmly establish Socialism, or, if you will, Communism in the United States of America.  Somewhere, back a good ways, the left realized it could stop running candidates like Gus Hall on the Communist Ticket, and just infiltrate the Democratic Party.  Although this movement has been going on for decades, it became absolutely and undeniably obvious with President Clinton, and later with President Obama.  Then something (unthinkable to the the liberals) happened; a cog was thrown into the “One World Order” machine when Donald Trump was elected.

His well orchestrated campaign was successful, and we have a president, at last, who is not a clone of the Washington politicians.  In the eyes of the Liberal Political Machine, this has obviously necessitated unheard of lies and misinterpretation of the truth by  the press and by the Democratic Party.  Beyond that, there is what the Bible calls “Spiritual wickedness in high places” at work (Ephesians 6:12).  We (the conservatives in general, and Christian Conservatives in particular) have been drawn into war, whether we want to be at war or not!  Now (speaking of and to Christian Conservatives): is this war to be solely in the spiritual realm, or will it be, as inevitably it will become, in the physical realm also?  This is a dilemma for the Christian who has learned from the teaching of Jesus Christ, the blessedness of peace.  Yet, is it wrong to defend and protect one’s family, and neighbors, and friends?  I think not!  All down through history, you can find examples of Christians taking up arms against tyranny; and of those who believe in God, fighting for a just cause.  Why do you think the liberals are so adamant about taking away our right to arms as it’s stated in the second amendment?  It’s so we will have no means by which to defend ourselves physically.  Then they’ll be able, when the time of attempted takeover comes (and it will come), to do so much more easily.

I would be reticent to the highest degree, if I didn’t close my blog with the most important thing of all, i.e., the importance of the human soul.  Although I hope I’ve stated clearly my belief in fighting if necessary to maintain our freedom as laid out in our Constitution; the soul is, nonetheless, far more important than the body:  Otherwise, why would Jesus teach, “What shall it profit a man if he should gain the whole world; but lose his own soul (Matthew 16:22).”  Therefore, I urge you, “Preach the Word!  Be instant in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine (2 Timothy 4:2)” This is an exhortation not just for those called to be preachers in a ministerial sense; but for lay Christians as well.  Do you love your friends and neighbors? Then tell them that Jesus died to save them.  Nothing else is as important as that.

From a sinner saved by grace; who is called to preach the unsearchable riches of Christ,

Bill

THE ONE WORLD ORDER CATASTROPHY

Jesus: The Image of the Invisible God!

“No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known (John 1:1, ESV).”

There are usurpers of the glory of God all over the world.  Churches and people who claim to be mediators between God and man; and the guardians and purveyors of that which God has given His children by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  How can you tell who they are?  Anyone who puts himself ahead of, or equal to the Triune God, is phony, and a usurper of God’s glory.  Anyone who desires to come to God, to know Him, to receive Him, and to be saved by Him, may do so; and no one will need to tell you who the phonies are: You will know them by their fruits, their claims to “the only true church” status, or their desire to have a hand in their own salvation, whether by the supposed edifying power of their sacraments and their works; or by their supposed “apostolic” dictation of whom may or may not be saved.  In their false, and demonically inspired opinion, there is always something that one must do, in addition to what Jesus Christ has done, to procure salvation.  If you read the book of Galatians prayerfully you will see what may be the best Scriptural example of them ( works religionists), and read of Paul’s Holy Spirit inspired condemnation of them.

I’ve said all of the above to say this: “Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6),  He is the Image of the invisible God (John 1:18),  There is salvation in no other) Acts 4:12!”  Come to Him today.  Leave whoever or whatever is keeping you in the grasp of Satan, and come by grace through faith to the Lord Jesus Christ today!

From one who deeply cares where you will spend eternity.

Jesus: The Image of the Invisible God!

One Mediator Between God and Man

Do you believe the Bible is God’s Word?  Have you been taught the Bible can only be understood with help from someone who is especially schooled in ministry, and approved by God to be a mediator?  Don’t hinder your relationship with God, as Father and child for another moment, by believing things that aren’t in accord with God’s Word. “For there is One Mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus ( 2 (Timothy 2:5).

Do you want to be saved?  Is God speaking to your heart?  Then call on the Lord Jesus Christ.  Confess your sins directly to God the Father, come by faith directly to Jesus Christ, thank Him for dying for your sins. Ask Him to be your Savior. He will forgive you  immediately.  Then find a church that teaches these things as they are written in God’s Holy Bible, and follow Christ in believer’s baptism.  Don’t be duped any longer by those who want to Lord it over you spiritually.

Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-10).  This is the way to Heaven.  Believing you can be saved by something that is conferred on you by another human being, or by your own works, is the road to Hell.  Wake up to the truth now.  Jesus will save you today!

From one who cares about where you’ll spend eternity,

One Mediator Between God and Man

PROCLAIMING THE TRUTH

“AND YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE (John 8:32)!

In John 17:17, our Lord Jesus Christ divinely defines truth for us.  He says, praying to God the Father:  “Sanctify them by Your truth.  Your Word is truth.”

The Word of God, as Jesus has declared it to be so in other Scriptures is our Canonical Bible, the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament, and the 27 books of the New
Testament.  This is the written truth of which Jesus speaks, by which we are to be sanctified; and Jesus Christ is the Living Word, and the Living Truth!  The two, the written, and the Living Word: can’t and won’t be separated.

The truth that has always been proclaimed by Bible believing Christians from the inception of Christ’s Church, His bride, is what we still proclaim today.  Salvation by God’s grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone; as He is revealed in Holy Scripture alone.  God alone!  Christ alone!  Scripture alone!  Grace alone!  Faith alone!   There is no other way, and those who know and follow Jesus Christ in truth, proclaim no other message, and point people to no one and nothing else!  Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6).  There is none other!   Call on Him today!

From one who cares where we all spend eternity,

Bill

PROCLAIMING THE TRUTH

GO FOR WHAT REALLY MATTERS!

JIM ELLIOTT, A CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY MARTYRED BY THE AUCA INDIANS SAID THIS:  “He is no fool, who gives up that which he cannot keep, to gain that which he cannot lose.”

That is a truth verified time after time in God’s Word.  Jesus said in Matthew 10:39: “Whoever finds his life shall lose it: and he who loses his life for my sake, shall find it.”  I don’t believe Jesus is specifically speaking of martyrdom here, as was the fate of Jim Elliott, and the four other missionaries who died with him.  I believe, rather, that He is speaking of finding our lives, in the sense of discovering that we can do whatever we want, no matter how frivolous what we want may be, rather than giving our lives to God for the sake of Jesus Christ; and consequently finding unsurpassed joy and peace in His service.  In other words:  We may choose to serve God, or not serve Him!

Usually, I’m reticent in regard to using myself as an example in the things I write; but I’m going to do so now, because I don’t know of anyone who has wasted what God has given him anymore than I have.  I find, to my chagrin, that I’m an old man who has not loved God as I should have loved Him; not loved my fellow humans as I should have loved them; and wasted much of what God has entrusted me with in utterly frivolous folly. Does that mean my case is hopeless; and that my goose is cooked as far as ever doing anything meaningful and worthwhile?  Absolutely not.  As in the case of the prophet Jonah, we find that our God is a God of second chances.  The one who enters the field of labor late in the day, receives the same monetary compensation as the guy who worked all day.  The Prodigal Son who went whoring came back disgraced, and willing to become his father’s servant, only to be given a feast and be received as a son.  Our inclination is to feel that the Father was not right in so doing.  We have a tendency to agree with the elder son, that the younger “wild kid” is undeserving, and therefore should receive nothing more than he had already received; and, given his earlier licentiousness, he didn’t really deserve that.   By human reasoning alone, we are absolutely just in thinking that way.: The Prodigal Son didn’t deserve being received back as a son; and someone like me, as wishy-washy, lazy, uncaring, unmerciful, unkind, and unfeeling as I’ve proved to be, doesn’t deserve good things from God the Father either.   In short, I don’t deserve to be awakened to the realization of where I’ve been, and what I’ve become, spiritually. Nevertheless, God, in mercy, warns me in Ephesians 5:14:  “Awake, you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.”  I have awakened, and He has given me light!  He woke me up before it was too late.  As undeserving, as licentious, and as unfeeling and uncaring as the Prodigal Son;  indeed, literally a prodigal son myself, I have come home and eagerly accept my “second chance.”

Does this mean I’m gonna be perfect and never sin again?  God forbid that I should be deceived into thinking that.  What it does mean, is that every morning henceforth that God affords to me, I will wake up; seek His Face, remind Him of my commitment, and claim this, His promise: “Fear not, for I am with you.  Be not afraid, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my right hand of righteousness (Isaiah 41:10).”  Then I’m going to live for Him; witness for Him; preach for Him; and sing for Him.  May God help me and keep me steadfast!

“WHAT REALLY MATTERS?”   People’s souls, that’s what!  William Bradbury’s hymn, “The Solid Rock” says it best: “On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand.”

A sinner saved by grace, who cares about you,

A TALE OF TWO PEOPLE

IN LUKE 18:9-14, JESUS SPEAKS THIS PARABLE TO SOME WHO TRUSTED IN THEMSELVES, THAT THEY WERE RIGHTEOUS, AND DESPISED OTHERS:

“Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.  The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God,  I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.  I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying God be merciful to me a sinner.  I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for everyone that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.”

I refuse to insult anyone’s intelligence by explaining this parable: because it is quite self-explanatory.  Jesus makes it clear that you and I will not be justified as long as we think we’re superior to others in regard to our standing before God.  Romans 3:23 says that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, every single one of us.  Unless we have been washed in the blood of Jesus Christ by grace through faith in Him (Ephesians 2:8-10, our goose is cooked.  ‘nough said!

With love from  a decrepit sinner saved by grace,

A TALE OF TWO PEOPLE

ALL ABOUT JESUS-HE IS KING

GOD, THROUGH THE PERSON OF JESUS CHRIST, CREATED ALL THINGS.  HE MADE EVERYTHING THAT WAS MADE, AND DID SO FOR HIS OWN PLEASURE (COLOSSIANS 1:16).

Since the Sovereignty of Jesus Christ is indisputably obvious (That is: if one has ears to hear), it is wise to come to Him immediately, by repentance to God the Father, and faith in the Lord Jesus.  If one doesn’t have ears to hear, then I reckon the one who preaches of witnesses to such a one is, in effect, beating a dead horse.

Therefore, as a Christian, and one who is called to bear the message of the saving power of Jesus Christ to others, I beseech you to come to Jesus Christ by faith today.  It is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone, as He is revealed in the Bible alone, that anyone is saved, including you and I.  Are you struggling with the vicissitudes of life and don’t know where to turn?  Then turn to Christ.  He is the One who broke the power of sin and death.  He can give you light, eternal life, and peace.  None other can make that claim.

From a sinner saved by grace, who loves the Lord Jesus, and cares for the souls of others,

REAL REVIVAL PRODUCES UNITY

I’ve been praying for revival for a long time.  What’s wrong?  Why doesn’t God send it on a large scale; in a big way; as history tells us he has done in times past?  The answer or answers can be found by reading the New Testament,  John 3rd chapter, and John 17th chapter in particular.

The earth is shrouded in darkness:  Is that not so?  We’ve come to a place in time when the sale of weapons may well exceed the sale of Bibles on the worldwide scale.  While the sale of books with Christian themes is rampant, so is the sale of guns, knives, and even (for the old folks) self defense canes and sticks.  My advice is this:  If you don’t have one, buy one more book:  The Holy Bible.  Or if you have one, and don’t read it daily and regularly,  begin this very day to do that.  You’ll find within the pages of that “Book of Books,” that God is the defense of those who trust in Him (Psalm 62:1,2); that Jesus Christ is Lord of all (John 1), that God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) is “Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, He who is, and who was, and who is to come, The Almighty (Revelation 1:8). ” You’ll find that Jesus Christ is Savior and Lord; and believing that within your heart, and confessing Him before others will bring you salvation (Romans 10:9,10).

In the pages of God’s Holy Word, Jesus speaks authoritatively on the matters of sin, and righteousness, and judgment:  Why is the world, why perhaps are you – looking elsewhere?

In John 3, there is a rather long discourse between Jesus and Nicodemus, a Pharisee who came to Jesus by night.  Most people I’ve heard preach on this discourse between Jesus and Nicodemus stop at verse 7.  In reality, the discourse goes on through verse 21, and is one of most important portions of Scripture in the entire Bible; because it speaks plainly to the issue of what is really wrong with human beings; and how the fall of Adam has affected us in no uncertain terms.  Let’s begin at John 3:14 and continue to verse 21: “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up.  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through  him might be saved.  He that believeth in him is not condemned.  He that believeth not, is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation:  That light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth  evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved (Made known with disdain).  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest (Made known), that they are wrought in God.”

Is it not abundantly plain, exactly why the earth is shrouded in darkness?  Jesus says plainly that it’s because :”The Light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light.”  The key word here for our edification is “believe.”  Believe in Jesus Christ, who is the Light who came into the world, to enlighten all who will believe, and to give them eternal life.

WHERE DOES UNITY COME IN?

In the 17th Chapter of John we have the prayer that Jesus prayed for his own.  We are included in His prayer, as “them who also shall believe on me through their (The Apostles) word.” That is, we who have heard or read the Word of God, and believe in Jesus Christ as He is revealed therein.  He prays in John 3:17, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”  I’ve some questions: Is there more than One Jesus Christ revealed in God’s Word?”  The obvious answer is, no.  But, is there more than one Jesus (false Messiahs) believed on in the world?  The answer is, many.  This is a dilemma, is it not?  Nevertheless, God Himself has given us the answer to this present dilemma in the Person of His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ.  Believe in Him as He is revealed in Holy Scripture, and no other way.  Receive Him as the Bible says, by grace through faith alone –  as He is revealed in the Holy Bible alone!  That is the fulfillment of the unity of which Jesus Christ speaks in John 17.  WE MUST BE BIBLE CHRISTIANS, “BEING BORN AGAIN, NOT OF CORRUPTIBLE SEED, BUT OF INCORRUPTIBLE, BY THE WORD OF GOD, WHICH LIVETH AND ABIDETH FOREVER. FOR ALL FLESH IS GRASS.  THE GRASS WITHERETH, AND THE FLOWER THEREOF FALLETH AWAY:  BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURETH FOREVER.  AND THIS IS THE WORD THAT BY THE GOSPEL IS PREACHED UNTO YOU (1 PETER 1:23-25).

ONE MORE QUESTION:  Will you join, in a spirit of revival, with others, for the sake of Jesus Christ and the Gospel, by believing in Christ alone; as He is revealed in the Bible alone; by grace alone; through faith alone?  If Christians of all denominations will do this, Catholics and Protestants alike, as well as those who claim to be neither (in the spirit of Chronicles 7:14), we will have a revival such as the world has never seen.

From a sinner saved by grace, in the Spirit of the Grace of our Lord Jesus,

ALL ABOUT JESUS-HE IS ALL IN ALL

LOOK ALL ABOUT YOU, AND CONTEMPLATE THIS:  Has the world with all of its advancements in education become a safer place because of learning?  If you’re honest you’ll say “no.”  Why not?  Because all of the knowledge that humankind has acquired, cannot effect a change in human hearts.  We are sinners by nature, and God in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only one with an answer to that dilemma.  Indeed, He is the One who by His Life, by His death, and by His resurrection, proved Himself to be both Lord and Savior.  You and I, by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, can make a change in the world: and we who are saved by grace through faith are the only ones who can.

With all of our knowledge, we can never become people with renewed spirits, and clean hearts, except we come in repentance to God the Father, and by faith to the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 3:7; Jeremiah 17:9; 1 Timothy 1:15).

In 2 Corinthians 5:17-21, we are told, as new creations in Christ, exactly what we need to do.  We are to share the Gospel, so that others may be reconciled to God and too become new creations; and so our revival spreads: By faith to faith (Romans 1:16,17).

Therefore, I plead with you, by the mercies of Almighty God, that if you’ve never before trusted in Jesus Christ, you will do so today.  If you are a Christian, I pray that you will go out as an ambassador for the Lord Jesus, and win souls to Him.

From a sinner saved by grace, with peace, and love, and grace to all,
