initiated the keeping of records of birth, and death. He handed such records to His people starting with our first human parents Adam and Eve along
with their subsequent genealogies and other information as He saw fit.
then this practice has spread beyond to all human kind in some form or another.
In particular birth certificates and records of birth are of tremendous
importance, especially in cases of inheritance, to ensure that it goes to
proper, genuine heirs. In the natural birth the birth certificate legally
establishes paternity; shows who the
parents are, race, nationality, and if it was a live birth or stillborn, It may
also give other pertinent information regarding the parents, or the baby. These
records are usually kept in public records departments of various state, local,
and other governmental agencies where people can come and get a certified copy
of these records, for establishing identity, parentage, inheritance, and
various other purposes.
and sisters, God too keeps a record of those born to Him through faith in His
Son Jesus Christ. Through God all Christians are born spiritually alive. Although this spiritual truth is not seen as relevant or pertinent in the
secular world where all solely human beings are born physically alive but spiritually dead; it is of the utmost importance to God. General human records are
scanty and cannot compare to the birth certificate of the Christian, all who
believe in God’s Son, Jesus Christ and do His will.
establishes the spiritual paternity of every Christian, explicitly,
exclusively, and absolutely. God goes further to include in the record of the
Christian birth not only the parentage and nature of it but also the
inheritance, identity, character, and conduct of those born to Him. God details the nature and parentage of the
Christian birth without exception: John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to
become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were
born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of
man, but of God.
Jhn 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a
man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of
1Jo 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God:
and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of
1Jo 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this
is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
1Jo 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he
that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
seems in the secular world it is not unusual for people to fake a birth
certificate. Unfortunately some try to fake the
spiritual birth certificate as well. Invariably, some, despite the direct continual warnings throughout the Bible and directly from the Saviour Himself Jesus Christ, who says:
Jhn 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the
door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief
and a robber.
Jhn 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, I am the door of the sheep.
God won't make you, me or anyone else an exception. He will not bend His will to your strongly held but still false beliefs!!!
God has ordained a day of reckoning, a day of wrath, a day of punishment for those who refuse to hear, refuse to believe, and perversely reject Him, the sole Saviour and source of salvation through the free gift the grace of God. When anybody has the evil, wicked temerity to call God a liar, they will have no place to hide from his wrath.
see, brothers and sisters, absolutely no one can fool God in any shape way or
form. At some point the self birthers and those who claim they contributed to
being born again must come before God at the time of inheritance. If there is any other parentage than that
given through God on the spiritual birth certificate; that birth certificate is
entirely fake, invalid and never accepted by God.
happens when people show up to God with fake certificates of their spiritual
Mt. 7: 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord,
Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my
Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have
we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy
name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I
never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Jesus knew they were lying self promoters who had never received any power from Him to do the work they claimed. Without faith in Jesus, no one can ever receive power to do anything without Him.
If there is any amongst us
who in error claim salvation through their own personal works of righteousness, through salvation PLUS works, through Salvation Plus the Mosaic Law of condemnation, through inheritance from Christian parents, through the prayers of some relative or other persons, some philosophy, through obtaining a degree in theology or religious studies, salvation through organization, institution or denomination, man made doctrine, or any thing
instead of the absolutely free gift of God; all such persons are absolutely still dead in
their sins and are commanded by God to repent or face the wrath of God in
eternal death, damnation, torment and punishment forever.
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:

and sisters, imagine the shock of parents in the delivery room at their newborn
baby loudly declaring and bragging to them that through its own efforts it
played a critical part in its own creation and birth. We know that such a thing
is impossible. None of us have to be a medical genius to know that there is no
such thing as a “self- birther”. Excluding the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord,
born of a virgin; if our parents did not get together first, absolutely no one
will ever be born on this earth. Even if done in a lab, it still takes the
combined product from a man and a woman.
birth, we are naturally handed, in most cases, all that we need to grow/develop
over time to learn and acquire the skills to control and use our bodies to
this similar, but greater way, those who are born again of the Spirit through
faith in Jesus Christ are endowed with all that they need from Him. Through the
Spirit we attain ongoing growth; to develop, learn and acquire the knowledge
and skills that we need from Him over time to serve and continue in Him. (Col. 2:10 And ye are
complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:)
claiming to be a self-birther or having paid a portion for their grace is still
dead in their sins and should repent. The Bible is absolutely final, clear and
speaks in too many places to post here (feel free to look further on your own)
that our salvation came from God as an entirely free gift of grace to us
through faith in Jesus Christ, who paid the full, total price to God for us to
have it in the first place.
only at Christmas time but many of us give free gifts. It would be highly
insulting to the giver if the gift given for free was falsely claimed by the
receiver that they also paid a portion for it. Any receiver with such a
disrespectful, ungrateful attitude is also falsely calling the giver a liar and
would soon find no one willing to give him or her any free gifts in future.
anyone in error claims they paid a portion of the free gift of grace, by which
all receive salvation; all such are still dead in their sins and should repent
and come fully in faith accepting the free gift of grace:
brothers and sisters, as they say in the vernacular “if we gotta pay any amount
for the gift, it ain’t a gift”. However, God through the Son has given all who
believe His gift absolutely, entirely and eternally FREE. Rom 5:18 Therefore
as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by
the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that
not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

we need God’s help, brothers and sisters, He will surely provide it. Those who
need help with the sin of gluttony or undereating or anything else according to His word, can be
assured that God will supply all that is needed to overcome in this or any other
with this problem have desired to fast, but found that they were solely focused
on when their fast would end so they could eat again. They found themselves
grieved, feeling ashamed, weak and unworthy. Our Lord does not want any of us
held captive by our own lusts. Jesus is our Door of escape so that none will be
tempted beyond their ability to bare it. Some have felt too ashamed to ask God
for help, upset at displeasing Him, failing Him. God does not punish or throw
people out who come to Him for help. Jesus Christ our Mediator, Saviour and
High Priest is always standing by always waiting for us by the very throne of
our Father in His very presence, even making intercessions for us, the Holy
Brothers and sisters there
is absolutely NOTHING passive about our worship and relationship to God. We
must go to Jesus, He commands us to come to Him. Jesus knows everything we do
before we do it. We can trust Jesus our powerful almighty God to give us the
help we need. In trust, we love Him and
His truth, we cooperate with Him in joy, knowing He gives us power and make us
what He desires us to be. Praise His Name!
JESUS IS STANDING BY! He is waiting for you to pull you out of trouble.

Luke 7:23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
to cause one displeasure at a thing, to make indignant; to be displeased,
and sisters, our Lord Jesus tells us we are blessed of Him when we believe and
receive the Word of truth in faith rather than be angry with Him about it. This
is the correct spiritual attitude that all Christians are commanded to have
regarding the truth of the Lord through the Bible.
tells us everybody does not feel this way and why they choose to reject His
word: John 3: 19And this is the condemnation, that
light is come into the world, and men have loved darkness rather than
light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth
the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth, cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made
manifest, that they are wrought in God.
2 Cor. 3: 3 But if our gospel is hid, it is hid to them that are
lost: 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them who
believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image
of God, should shine to them.
who refuse to believe, because they choose to love evil, choose to do evil, don’t
want their evil exposed by God. and therefore, reject the word of God, even so
they have no power to overcome or stop the word of God whatsoever. Ro. 4:3 For what if
some did not believe? will their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
4 By no means: verily let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is
written, That thou mayest be justified in thy sayings, and mayest overcome when
thou art judged
Praise God for the innumerable
faithful people of God who trust, obey, and come to Him for all the help and
guidance needed to please Him out of love. They shall surely have that very
thing by the will and power of God.
Fri, Jan 20th - 11:12AM
Eph. 2: 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Ro. 4:1 What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as
pertaining to the flesh, hath found? 2 For if Abraham were justified by
works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. 3 For what saith the
scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. 5 But to him that worketh not,
but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for
righteousness. 6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto
whom God imputeth righteousness without works,
7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose
sins are covered. 8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute
and sisters, the Bible is absolutely clear in the above scriptures that no one,
absolutely no one can be saved by their own personal good works of
righteousness. Therefore, those who claim that their own works saved them are
never accepted by God and are still dead in their sins. Abraham was saved through faith in God before he received the sign of
circumcision from God. Because Abraham
believed in God, it showed in his works that he had no problem sacrificing
Isaac, because he fully believed in God, and knew without doubt that God can raise
the dead, and could restore his son Isaac to him again.
Jas. 9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or
upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for
righteousness. 10 How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but
in uncircumcision. 11And he received the sign
of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet
being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe,
though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them
also: 12And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the
circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father
Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.
is in no wise contradicting scripture, but is confirming that faith in God must
absolutely show forth and produce good works. Those claiming salvation, yet not
producing good works are false believers whose faith is fake that produces
nothing good and shows that such persons are still dead in their sins. James is
clear that this is the same kind of fake faith that demons have, they believe
in God without the slightest intention of obeying Him, and are unwilling, and
incapable of producing any good works whatsoever.
Jas. 2: 18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works:
shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also
believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without
works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had
offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his
works, and by works was faith made perfect? 23And the scripture was fulfilled
which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was
imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24 Ye see then how that by works a man is
justified, and not by faith only. 25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot
justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out
another way? 26 For as the body without the
spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Gal. 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any
thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
good works that James speaks of comes through faith in Jesus Christ, our
eternal source: Eph,
2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which
God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Tit 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all
iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
has set the eternal standard for proof or evidence that a person is actually
saved, which is not by just saying that they are saved, but that our salvation
through faith in Him is evidenced through our good works/ good fruit. Once
again, the Bible is explicit and absolute about the sole source of our good
Jhn 15:4 Abide in me,
and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit
of itself, except it abide in the vine; no
more can ye, except ye abide in me.
Jhn 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me,
and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
2Ti. 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not
according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was
given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
can boast that God owes them or is in debt to them to pay them salvation in
exchange for their own human works; it is not going to happen. All such are
still dead in their sins and should repent. Conversely, works without faith don’t
count with God either. So, absolutely none of us have any business running
around pointing, bragging, boasting, elevating and glorifying ourselves as
though our good works are through and by our own power. Good works alone are just as insufficient for salvation as faith without
1 Cor. 13:1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not
charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2And though I
have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and
though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not
charity, I am nothing. 3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and
though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me
we have faith in God, it will produce and show itself in good works enabled
through God. This is the eternal standard set forth and empowered by God and
rooted in the eternal truth of His love.
Bible poses this question: Rom 11:35 Or who hath first
given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? The answer is
plain, simple and absolute: God is not ever indebted to anyone and owes no man
that belong to Jesus Christ obey Him in faith out of love, not fear of
punishment, and believe the truth that all that we have comes from Him. We give
Him all the glory and our goal is to always lift up His name and not our own,
for He alone is worthy.
Col 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all
principality and power:
2 Cor. 3:5 Not that we are sufficient by ourselves to think any
thing as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God;

Lord Jesus Christ, Great Shepherd of the flock, Author of our eternal
salvation, loves us with a lavish, extravagant, rich, bold, fearless, eternal, incendiary
love. Brothers and sisters never in the history of all mankind did a prince give his life a ransom
to pay for dead, sin soaked, soiled, depraved, utterly defiled, totally
unworthy, evil ungrateful paupers, with no power or ability to save themselves-
destined for eternal death and punishment. Why did the Prince do it?
Prince, Saviour and High Priest saved us because He loves us.
Eph. 2: 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love
wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened
us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)…
Rom 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all
men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free
gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
Eph. 2: 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of
yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any
man should boast. (see
Rev 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the
first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him
that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
of the paupers do boast or brag, that they are saved because they worked to pay
a portion of the cost to be saved. Oh, dear friends if you or anyone falsely
believes that some work of yours or theirs contributed to the cost of eternal salvation,
both you and them are still dead in sin and condemnation; headed for eternal
death and punishment for refusing to believe the truth of the eternal gospel
message!! Repent of your sins and believe on the name of Jesus Christ and be
eternally saved. Gods way is the ONLY right way and the ONLY right way is God’s
Brothers and sisters, we ought
to desire and do everything God desires for and of us. And by His grace we will
do. Why are some still waiting? Come, let us without hesitancy or restraint throw
ourselves into the incendiary fire of God’s eternal love, in love and trust in
Him. There in his all-consuming fiery, incendiary love, the dross of fear,
timidity, weakness and failure are burned away, leaving in us calm assurance, confidence,
strength, hope, and all that we need to richly demonstrate consistently the totality
of our honor, worship and praise that we give only to Him, for He alone is

and sisters if there is any last shred of unbelief in any of us that God can
give us the power of self- control, as we trust and obey Him, we ought
to quickly trample any unbelief down in faith, and come running to Jesus to get
the help He alone is willing and absolutely able to give. We always come in humility, but also, we come
running with great boldness to the One who loves us; the One, standing by ready
to help us in our times of need, without condemning us. Let us believe, speak, and practice our
faith, and love with obedience, regardless of
the cost, discomfort or difficulty, for Jesus Christ is worthy. Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come

brethren, no Christian can justify thinking that the act of eating and drinking
is just between me, myself, and I. I assure you that the obese brother and
sister, and those who starve themselves to maintain weight can have the
victory. Again, even if we have “struggled” with sin in the area of food, Jesus
can and absolutely will give victory to all who believe, trust and do His will,
and renounce their own. It is time to bear fruit; it is time for victory.
Christians are ordained for victory through Lord Jesus Christ, even over their
own fleshly lusts:
1Co 15:57 But thanks
be to God, which giveth us the victory through
our Lord Jesus Christ.
1Jo 5:4 For whatsoever is born of
God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the
world, even our faith.
John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are
the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much
fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
love and humility, let us come before our God in complete love, worship, and
trust in Him for He alone is worthy.
Tue, Jan 10th - 6:57PM
eating and drinking, brothers and sisters, is important to God and we are
commanded to glorify Him even in these: 1 Co. 10:31
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of
sins can be kept hidden from other people. However, neither gluttony or
self-starvation is among them. Some obese Christians came out against
homosexuality, which the Bible also condemns. However, all the people saw were the
Christians’ sagging jowls, huge girths- pointing to the sin of gluttony. These Christians
did not ruin the word of God, but did ruin their testimony, and many pointed
out to them that they needed to clean up their houses too. The same goes for
the near skeletal brother or sister.
Of course, nothing can be hidden
from God, and it does not please Him that any of us His people should ever mistreat
the bodies He gave us. Thank Lord Jesus that God makes it clear through His
word how we can please Him and also helps all of us to do that very thing, without condemning us who flee to Him for help. To God
be all the glory honor and praise.
For those brothers and sisters, who are still
a little worried; there is no need for worry or fear of failure; be assured
that the word of God is true, and He will help you as you obey Him out of love.
Be assured that as you believe, trust and obey Him in faith He will give you all that you need to permanently put an end to your obesity, or self-starvation. Lord Jesus will continue to be in you and with you always. As Jesus
takes you on your journey, He will continually help and guide you in all His
ways, and keep you from stumbling as you obey and trust in Him, for it is impossible for
God to lie. Jesus is the way, the truth, the light, and the life.
Mon, Jan 9th - 8:01PM
6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should
obey it in the lusts thereof.
Rom 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
5:24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the
affections and lusts.
2:11Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from
fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
4:2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the
lusts of men, but to the will of God.
JESUS HE WILL MAKE A WAY OF ESCAPE FOR YOU
10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man:
but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are
able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye
may be able to bear it.
those who ask anything of God in doubt, cannot expect God’s help. They will continue to experience prolonged
and needless suffering trying to resolve things solely on their own.
1 Jas. 1: 6 But he must ask in faith, without doubting,
because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7That
man should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8He is a
double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
The improper relationship
with food arises out of ourselves plain and simple. God stands ready to help us
overcome and gain the victory when we trust in Him.
Brothers and sisters, feel free to go over the scriptures here and elsewhere personalizing them: I will not let sin...etc, lay hold on their truths and stand firm in the Word of God who loves and cares for you, me and every believer always.
Sat, Jan 7th - 2:56AM
in ignorance some say God’s people will never fully know Him; but what
does the Bible say? God spoke to the
nation of Israel under the Old Covenant or Mosaic Law: God gave them
full knowledge to understand the revealed things He wanted them to know under
it, as well as the punishment for disobeying it; which is His sole right and
Deu 29:29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those
things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we
may do all the words of this law.
Psa 25:14 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he
will shew them his covenant.
Pro 3:32 For the froward is abomination to the LORD: but his secret
is with the righteous.
take Isaiah 55: and other Old Covenant verses out of context: 8 For my thoughts are
not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For as the
heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my
thoughts than your thoughts.
Brothers and sisters, God
was addressing the wicked here not the righteous to turn and seek the Lord and He
would give them the knowledge to know Him. (See Isaiah 55). Of course, God’s
promise of a New Covenant was promised which was to be revealed through the coming
of the Messiah, Jesus Christ to all men at a later time under a completely
different and New Covenant. Nevertheless, under the Mosaic Law they still had all they needed from God to
fully know and obey Him under it, as well as to, again, know the penalty for
New Covenant Heb. 8: 10 This is the covenant I will
make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord. I will put My
laws in their minds, and inscribe them on their hearts. And I will be their
God, and they will be My people. 11 No longer will each one teach his
neighbor or his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know Me,
from the least of them to the greatest. 12 For I will forgive their iniquities,
and remember their sins no more.”
whole Bible is given to us by God to study and learn what God intends for all
believers. However, the New Testament is the final, eternal revealed word,
and complete standard for knowing God fully and what He accepts as the sole
standard for righteousness and acceptance into the kingdom of God as His
people. Only believers in Jesus Christ, indwelt by the Holy Spirit can be
taught and learn the Bible and fully understand AND OBEY God according to His
1 Co. 2:10 10 But God has revealed it to us by the Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11For who among
men knows the thoughts of man except his own spirit within him? So too, no one
knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 We have not received
the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand
what God has freely given us. 13And this is what we speak, not in words
taught us by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing
spiritual truths in spiritual words.
Dearly beloveds, God
commands us to diligently study the whole Bible we cannot learn it just by
occasionally looking at it or reading a few verses here and there. 2 Ti. 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman
that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
commands and tells us the purpose for why we are all commanded to study His
word: 2 Ti 3: 16 All scripture is given by inspiration
of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect,
throughly furnished unto all good works.
Under the New Covenant God
has given the whole world, not just the nation of Israel, everything needed to
fully know Him and obey Him now; as well as the penalty for rejecting Him. God is not stingy at all. God is not holding anything
back from us that we need to know about and from Him. However, it is only in
the believers' resurrected, incorruptible bodies that all will be able to contain knowing Him
directly and personally in His presence-face to face.
who reject the word of God do so because they choose to do so, and have no interest in obeying God.
1Co 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish
foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit
of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because
they are spiritually discerned.
here is not meant as mere gibberish, or unintelligible. What is meant is that
those who willfully permanently reject the gospel message, absolutely Do understand it and see
it as absurd, unbelievable and valueless. (See wrath of God Ro.1:18 and They
have no excuse Ro. 1:20;).
and sisters our change is coming…Ph. 3:20 Our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we
look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body,
that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working
whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
1 John 3:2 Beloved, we are now children of God, and what we will be
has not yet been revealed. We know that when Christ appears, we will be like
Him, for we will see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him
purifies himself, just as He is pure.
is absolutely nothing in the Bible that says we will never fully know God.
The purpose of the New Covenant again and again proclaims that it is Gods
eternal purpose and will that we fully know Him; for He will directly and personally
bring it to pass when He gives all believers resurrected, incorruptible eternal bodies
like that of Jesus Christ Himself.
1 Co 13: 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they
will cease; where there are tongues, they will be restrained; where there is
knowledge, it will be dismissed. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,
10but when the perfect comes, the partial passes away. 11When I was a child, I
talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I
became a man, I set aside childish ways. 12 Now we see but a dim reflection as in
a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall
know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love; but the
greatest of these is love.

1 Pe. 2: 9 But YOU are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a
holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, to proclaim the virtues of Him
who called YOU out of darkness into His marvelous light. 10 Once YOU were not a
people, but now YOU are the people of God; once YOU had not received mercy, but
now YOU have received mercy. 11 Beloved, I urge YOU as foreigners and
exiles, to abstain from the desires of the flesh, which war against YOUR soul.
as ambassadors of Christ and His appointed representatives on earth, we must
live out our lives as examples to all men of what it means to be in Christ.
third time we address the question some might ask: that since the Bible is not
for helping people lose weight, then how can God help me? Is this a contradiction?
No, it is not. The Bible greatly helps all of God’s people to have the true
biblical understanding of how we are to live and view things from His
perspective and never our own. Say it with me brothers and sisters, for you
will see this many times, GOD’S WAY IS THE ONLY RIGHT WAY AND THE ONLY RIGHT
WAY IS GOD’S WAY.
than merely saying it, brothers and sisters, is believing and acting upon it. Beloveds,
even repentance must be done God’s way, and it must be done in faith. If
anyone repents with selfish motivations, or doubt that it will do any good God
will not accept it. The plain truth is that any brother or sister repenting for
the wrong reasons, or even without faith that God will do them any good cannot
expect God to grant anything to them.
Jas 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may
consume it upon your lusts.
repentance is all about Jesus to whom we come for all our help:
Heb. 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he
that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them
that diligently seek him.
must diligently seek God, and fully trust Him for all our needs and care, for
His glory and honor out of faith, love, and trust in Him.
Brethren, this is a new
year and to whom it applies, it is time past to leave, LET GO OF AND ALWAYS
REJECT doubt and the lack of complete faith in Jesus behind. And this we will
do by His power.
