          Beloveds, we must clear up the lie that when the Lord told Joshua he would have good success through obeying the Law, that this was meant for Christians today. The Lord told this to Joshua that in obeying the Old Covenant of the Law God would give him success in conquering certain lands and taking these lands for the nation of Israel: Joshua 1: 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
          
          
          
          Also in keeping the Old Covenant of the Law, (which is all they had from God), he would not face the wrath of God and die as Aaron and Moses did for their disobedience to God in not keeping the Old Covenant of the Law: Num. 27: 12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered. 14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
          
          Moses never preached that the Old Covenant of the Law would make anyone permanently righteous in the sight of God. Here is the truth, preached by our Saviour Jesus Christ: Jhn 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
          
           Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.
          
          See Galatians 3, which explains God’s purposes for the Law; and how Jesus Christ has delivered us from it for all time. Feel free to study on your own the numerous verses that fully declare that Jesus Christ is the eternal Saviour and final sole source of eternal salvation for all time for all who believe in Him. See John 14:6.

          

          Anyone willfully claiming salvation based on keeping the Old Covenant of the Law and/ or combining it with the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, or anything else is not considered a Christian according to the Bible.

          
          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.

          
          Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the CURSE: for it is written, CURSED is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

          1Ti. 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
          7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

          1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

          John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    THE TWO SOWERS

     

    Brothers and sisters what we must fully understand is that there is not one, but two sowers in scripture, what each of them do and why.

     

    The first and only legitimate, true sower is Jesus Christ,  the Anointed One,  the only Son of God, appointed and sent forth by God;  who also enables His children to take and spread His gospel forth into the world. The sower, Jesus Christ sows the gospel message in its fullest sense and meaning as derived eternally from the final, finished, and complete for all time work of Him,the sole Saviour, and source of salvation and giver of  forgiveness of all sins, forever, for all who believe in Him. Brothers and sisters say the following with me:

    Mat 13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; This GOOD SEED is the only kind of seed that God has through Jesus Christ His only Son,  and all He sows for all eternity. Keep this in mind, God only sows good seed.

    The farmer or sower does not plop the whole ear of corn into the ground, but takes a kernel from his best ears and sows them. The new ears of corn are the product of the original ear of his finest corn, and expected to grow and produce as the same good ear of origin under the care, protection and feeding of the farmers.

    Likewise we have the understanding that those persons who are believers in Jesus Christ are His progeny or offspring of Him our seed. Our Sower, Jesus Christ never walks away and leave the seeds (His Children) to survive or not on its own, but eternally, never sleeping, watches over it, protects it and feeds it to ensure that it will produce another good crop, and be protected from harm.

    Act 17:28

    For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

    I know some may say I know of this or that person, they used to be saved, and now they are not. Some may say I know of this person or that person, that keeps slipping in and out of salvation, or that claims to be saved without any evidence of it. 

    This might seem so harsh, so heartless,  unsympathetic, cruel, and uncompassionate to say in light of such persons; but the eternal truth of the word of God the Bible, does not ever rest on mere human sentiment. God is the final, complete standard of eternal truth that always holds true-Jesus Christ only sows good seed, nothing else. The evidence of His seed is that it only produces good fruit without any decay nor corruption of any kind.  

     

    Mar 4:14 The sower soweth the word.

    This gives Christians the absolute assurance and full confidence that if somebody comes with a different messenger other than Jesus Christ and /or a different message, or a mixed message regarding salvation, it must absolutely be rejected. It is impossible for Jesus Christ to produce rotting, decayed, corrupt seed, or mixed seed i.e. part good and part bad.

    I know these are bold statements to make in the face of some today that are going forth with mixed gospels, which are no gospels at all. Nevertheless in light of scripture as the eternal final standard of eternal truth for the whole world, that speaks boldly, we must all do the same with all diligence.

    The seed, seeds and tares:  what the Bible has to say about each of  them, and reveals what we must know and fully understand about each of them and even why.

     

    Beloveds, our absolute understanding of the seed begins with our Lord Jesus Christ:

     

    Gal 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

     

    The seed here meaning Jesus Christ Himself is the sperma. Jesus Christ is the life giving force which contains of and within Himself the life force capable of causing the plant to germinate and grow. Without His life giving force of the sperma, it is impossible for the seed to replicate, itself at all.

     

    Jesus Christ is the eternal life giving sperma, alone. Through faith in His Name, His final, finished and complete work of salvation; He bestows the divine energy of the Holy Spirit operating within the soul by which we are regenerated, and made children of God.

     

    Read below and speak it aloud with me brothers and sisters.

     

    Jhn 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 27She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

     

     

     

    Jhn 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

     

     Jesus  Christ is The Word of Life

     

    1 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

    God made His Son Jesus Christ the Head of the church. The church meaning the body of all believers past, present and future. It would be laughable were it not so dangerous and blasphemous that some preach all or some of the apostles or prophets such as Moses as the head of the church although they all preached Jesus Christ alone. Some preach various other men, or the earth, or various “spirits” or movements, various other false doctrines of men and even ideologies or salvation via various denominations of men  as head of the church.

     

    We all know, brothers and sisters, that whatever we claim as our head, that is what we direct our prayers to and serve.

     

    All worship, prayers, supplications, intercessions, and works of obedience will be heard and acceptable to Jesus Christ, for all who believe in and on Him. All that is directed towards anyone or anything else is absolutely in vain, and utterly futile.

    Jesus said: Mt. 15: 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    Jesus said:

     

    Mt. 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

     Look at it this way, Jesus Christ absolutely declares for all time that nothing but absolute faith in the final finished work of Jesus Christ can make people acceptable to God.   John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    Jesus said:

    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.

    Jesus said:  

    Jhn 10: 7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

    11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

    We have those who are  full of pride and puffed up, not coming to tell anyone about Jesus Christ, but instead falsely proclaiming they gained access to Him through something other than Him. But Jesus said, all such are thieves, robbers, hirelings coming to steal, kill and destroy the sheep. Hirelings, who will never protect the sheep from the wolves. Instead hirelings will run away to save themselves and leave the sheep at the mercy of the wolves. All should run away from hirelings, thieves, and robbers  to Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd who protects and keeps His flock, and gave His life for us His sheep.

     

    God absolutely declares of His Son Jesus Christ now and forever:

     

    Eph. 1: 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

     

     

     

    Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

     

     

     

    1Pe 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner.

     

    Jesus Christ is the Head of the church; He will always be the Head of the church. Even if anyone denies this eternal truth that Jesus Christ is the Head of the church; Jesus Christ remains the Head of the church for all eternity. The Headship of Jesus Christ over the church is given by God for all eternity, and no man, woman or thing has absolutely any power now or ever to overthrow Him in any way or manner whatsoever.

    Therefore, holy people of God who believe in Lord Jesus Christ, you can be sure your prayers etc. to Him are never in vain. He ever waits for you, never sleeping day or night to attend upon you, upon me, upon us all, and HE IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS. He has no elite, or big time people, He has no little or insignificant people, we are all one in Him. Therefore, fly, go at all times, without delay or hesitation to the One, Jesus Christ who is our help forever.

    Can forgiveness be abused? A Christian lady I know felt that the doctrine of forgiveness is abused and even distorted, by some, to mean that Christians have to forgive AND allow those whom they have forgiven to continually abuse them, based on the misinterpretation of:

     

    Mt. 18: 21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

     

    It is safe to say some abused persons have been injured or killed by going back into dangerous situations, based on the misinterpretation of this verse. Some churches too misinterpret the doctrine of forgiveness and fail to discipline  unrepentant unruly trouble makers in the body, in error thinking that forgiveness ALSO means tolerating dangerous, destructive, and disorderly behavior against people in the church and out of it. Some find it hard to forgive seeing that the doctrine of forgiveness is falsely linked to having to tolerate or even approve of  abuse by those who have been forgiven.

     

    Jesus states clearly that forgiveness is not a blank check for those who have been forgiven to continue to abuse the forgiver. There is no excuse for any form of abuse. People who do this continually are not backsliders, there are no such persons in Christ.

     

    The Bible is clear if a Christian is being mistreated they should not keep it a secret. They must let the wrongdoer know what he or she is doing and fully expect for the problem to stop. The offended can go to confront the offender with witnesses to verify the charges and cause the offender to stop the offense or offenses. If this does not stop the offender,  they must tell it to the church. If the wrong doer will not stop or submit to the authority of the church, there is no further obligation to have anything to do with that person. See Mt. 18:15-17.

     

    The Bible makes it clear, Christians forgive other Christians and all men; but do not have to be a doormat or tolerate continual abuse, or maintain contact with those persons whether in or out of the church who remain unrepentant and destructive to them or the church as a whole.

    The Bible tells us that such unrepentant persons are not to be considered Christians.

    In cases of imminent personal danger, OR PERIL God does not command you to go to the person doing you wrong, get to safety and report them to the authorities available.

    Somebody out there is in desperate need to hear this. God help you to act accordingly, sooner than later.

    The Bible is clear, that there are some situations or persons, regardless of who they are, dearly beloveds, that are so dangerous, to the Christian; that it is not even about forgiveness at all, but that they must make every effort to remove themselves to escape from further danger. For example:  

    2Co 11:26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

     False brethren means: I.e. false brother; .one who ostentatiously professes to be a Christian, but is destitute of Christian knowledge and piety.

    God purposes in ordaining good government:

    Ro. 13: 1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

     

     

     

    Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

     

     

     

    Titus 3 1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, 2To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.

     

     

     

    God does not give a blank check to government to operate outside of protective law for the law abiding; and criminal law to punish criminals or law breakers.

     

    Dealing with danger from wrongful governmental (rogue government) oppression:

     

     

    2 Co 11:32 In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me: 33 And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.

     

    The apostle Paul, brothers and sisters, certainly was not going to hang around to receive the evil intentions intended toward him. We all can and are enabled to forgive all men, through Jesus Christ our Saviour. However, God does not require His people who may be in danger;  to hang around to be anybody’s doormat. In Paul's case we also see an example among many of  wrongful governmental evil intentions that should not be submitted to either.

    We can all absolutely trust Jesus Christ, to make a way of escape out of our trials. We can all absolutely thank Him and be joyful for being found worthy to be tested through them. We can all be taught or learn the lesson(s)  Lord Jesus intends for us through them. We can work in obedience to Him, as He shapes us, strengthens and conforms us to His image through our tests and trials. Never forget, brothers and sisters the aforementioned purposes our trials serve, so that neither you nor I should ever lose joy, nor hope or be afraid in any difficulties. Jesus Christ never leaves His people alone ever.

     

     There will be mature Christians who will accept those who have been saved in the prison house the same as they would any other Christian. Then again, there will be some who will remain skeptical, wary and unwelcoming to  any prison converts, because they feel that the past is prolog.

     

    Dearly beloveds, it is very well known that prison converts come out of prison with a lot of baggage -ways of operating that have to be renounced and conformed to the word of God. Some leave a trail of victims whom they have harmed. Amends and or restitution to victims should be made if possible, although some victims, understandably, desire no further contact from their perpetrators.

    Prison converts have to keep on doing God's will, whether spoken well of or ill of the same as any other Christian, without exception. The only thing that really matters is what our Saviour Jesus Christ has said about us and done to and for us.

     

     

     

    The mature Christian will help the jail house convert to grow and understand what God expects of them in public and private behavior and in relationship to others. Prison converts along with all of us, have to come to the final truth that the only right way is God’s way, and that God’s way is the only right way for ever, no matter where or what.

     

    Eph 4:28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

     

    1Pe 4:15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters. Jesus Christ changes everything.

    Sadly, some jail house converts blame their lives of crime due to maltreatment by family etc. I say this in truth and love, brothers and sisters, many who have been maltreated, never turned to crime. There are people in prison who were never miss treated, or in poverty, and had every advantage. What they all have in common with all who are unsaved is the sin nature that can only be destroyed through faith in Jesus Christ. Because of the inborn sin nature of the human race inherited through Adam's rebellion in the garden of Eden, sinners sin period.

     

    Therefore, the perpetrator cannot be morphed into a victim, and will find little sympathy in any attempts to do so. I know we will all stop worrying and fretting over what people say or may say about us if we are fully persuaded, convinced, and convicted that living up to what Jesus Christ has said about us and made us by His power is the only thing that matters.

     

    Jesus Christ allows the faith of every Christian to be tried to test its authenticity, whether real or fake. Fake converts, regardless of the place they claim to have been saved in, will always turn away from Jesus Christ under tests and trials, revealing what they actually are, bad seeds.

     

    However, when the true Christian is tried or tested, he or she will continue to do what is right and remain consistently faithful to Jesus Christ, that is real faith that is unshakeable, and unmovable under fire by the power of God.

     Those whose minds are set, whose hearts are fixed on Jesus Christ, will always overcome through Him, regardless of the fire. Fire hardens steel, and burns off its impurities. Fire refines, Fire purges, and fire strengthens all who are in Jesus Christ. However the fire burns all chaff, that is then blown away as it is good for nothing.

     

     Rom 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

    Heb. 1: 1God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

     

    Jesus Christ is God’s absolutely sole only mouth piece, and final spokesman for God in absolute truth. There are no elite converts, or some converts being better than others based upon the place, circumstances, or conditions wherein they are saved.  Whether a person is a great sinner or a smaller one is not the standard. No one regardless of what level of sin can escape the wrath of God, hell and everlasting damnation except through faith in Jesus Christ alone. Brothers and sisters if you believe that Jesus Christ is the sinless Son of God, who died bodily and shed his blood on the cross to pay for our sins, and rose again from the dead you are saved period. 

     

    Isa 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

     

    Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

     

    John 1: 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness.

     

    Heb 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

     

     

     

    Heb 10:17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

     

     

     

     Heb 10:18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

     

    1Jo 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

     

     

     

     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. 

     

    1Jo 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

     

    This is God’s final absolute word of salvation, and the absolute trajectory and progression of changes it produces in them that are saved. GOD ALLOWS NO EXCEPTIONS- NO MIX OF SO-CALLED DARK AND LIGHT, NO HALF SAVED, NO BACKSLIDER, NO CARNAL CHRISTIAN.

    This is a seemingly tough topic, but is there anything too hard for God? The answer is a resounding NO.  It remains true, however, that some do get right nervous when folks with a history of criminality claim to come out of prison saved. Especially so for those who have murdered or been very violent, or a thief or harmed a child. Then too, some folks get very nervous and jittery at any body coming out of prison, claiming salvation, no matter what level of crime the person committed.

     

    It is not fair some say, my brothers or sisters. However, life is not fair. It is true some will judge jail house converts, no matter how long they have been saved, and shown consistent proof of a changed life. Worst of all is the stigma that rubs off on their children, family, friends, casual associates, or even the church that they attend.  

     

    I know it hurts anyone to be judged in this way. Such persons may feel, unfairly judged, all alone, abandoned, rejected, deflated, defeated, depressed, dejected deprived, disrespected, helpless, unloved, unlovable, hurt, resentful, angry, enraged, tired of it all, and tempted to act out verbally and/or physically. 

     

    Let no brother or sister assault or harm anyone under these circumstances, because it will only prove what is said about them is true, that their conversion is absolutely false.

     

    Some may ask what are they to do, and where or what then is the good in this for me being treated in this way?

    Brothers and sisters we can’t fail to notice the false conversion of all Time-Judas Iscariot, betrayer of Lord Jesus. Even though Judas Iscariot was, located right in the midst of Lord Jesus Christ's earthly presence and ministry, heard His sermons, saw His miracles, ate with Him, walked with Him, he still denied and betrayed Him.

     

    Another question does the fact that a person receives salvation in prison or in a fox hole always mean that all of these confessions are false?

     

    The Bible answers us clearly here, people can be saved anywhere, including in prison or in the fox hole. In the book of Philemon, one Onesimus, who believed the witness of Paul concerning salvation in Jesus Christ was saved in prison:

    Paul said of Onesimus: I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:  One of the two thieves on the cross with Jesus Christ, believed in Him and was saved: Lord Jesus said to the saved thief: Luk 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

    Brothers and sisters I know some of you are saying that you do know of false jail house, and fox hole conversions. Well, I know you are right and I agree. However, the question is it only in the jail house and or the fox hole that false conversions occur? I know you will agree that false conversions can occur outside of these areas, and even in the four walled church.

     The point that must be made is that none of us can afford to be too narrow in discernment in knowing and understanding God’s final and eternal standards that apply to and attest to the genuineness or lack of it of a person’s conversion or confession of faith, including one’s own.

    Jail house confessions of faith in Jesus Christ. I have seen some people, even unbelievers sneer at those who have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and received salvation in prison. I wanted to post on something else, but feel compelled by the Holy Spirit to post on this issue. I know many of us can certainly understand why so many find jail house conversions to be suspect, to question its genuineness.

     

     

     

    Certainly many look with suspicion upon those jail house converts with the thought in back of some minds that at some point they will revert back away from salvation.

     

    Maybe someone you know, or maybe even you are a jail house conversion. Maybe you live in fear that you will fall away and go back to what you were. Certainly some jail house converts live in fear that others think this about them and some fear that they could be right.

     

    I have heard some say that jail house converts are just playing a game, trying to get early release, or to get on Christian units that tend to be more peaceful, and give more benefits of some kind, especially in having less violent inmates, less to be scared of.

     

    Fox hole conversions are also held to be suspect. Fox hole conversions occur in times of war, or in various situations so dangerous that survival is highly unlikely. You know what some sneer: “there are no atheist in fox holes”.

    It seems to me brothers and sisters that the real question is not where the conversion took place at all. I posit that it is totally immaterial and irrelevant. The thing of utmost importance is does the person sincerely confess faith in Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins or did they make a bargain or try to cut a deal with Jesus in that they would give Him something in exchange for something from Him?

    All of the apostles preached the New Covenant of Jesus Christ. One example among numerous is that of Paul: Acts 28: 23 And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening.

     

    Jesus is the eternal  sole Saviour and High Priest of the New Covenant, written in His own sinless blood. He is the Head of the church, and great Keeper and Shepherd of the flock of God. That means we are His sheep, He is absolutely keeping us, fighting for us, loving us, helping us grow, guiding us, disciplining us, correcting, teaching us and keeping us on the pathway of eternal life.

     

    Brothers and sisters we are all commanded to preach the same thing regarding salvation that it is solely through faith in the Son of God, Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord. 

     

    Let us also carefully note that not one apostle ever taught that they were to be worshipped, and forbade anyone from attempting to do so. Brothers and sisters let us also direct the totality of our worship to  our Triune God alone as all the prophets, apostles, have taught and did, and all believers are commanded to do.

     

    All who believe on the Lord Jesus, will be immoveable, and steadfast in worshipping God alone, as He has well enabled us to do out of His love for us and our love for Him, through the Holy Spirit. Let us fully embrace the Lord our God; and freely partake of His lavish love and truth. Let us take time also to fellowship with Him in private. Let us meet Him there in the intimacy that is granted to all who believe. Let us wait on Him, and commune with Him in sweet union with Him, who gave His life, shed His sinless blood; died bodily on the cross for us and rose again out of love for us, to save us and deliver us from our sins and this present evil world for all eternity. It goes without saying brethren, let us also continue to gather together as the family of God, to worship and fellowship in His presence.  Jesus Christ changes everything.

    love

    Thank God for all the wonderful faithful prophets of God; not one of them preached or taught that anyone should worship them. All the prophets, and the whole of scriptures, prophesized that Jesus Christ the Anointed One is the Messiah that should be worshipped forever, never themselves.  Brothers and sisters, we have the testimony of Jesus Christ:  

    John 5: 39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. John 5: 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. 47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

     

    John 8: 58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

     

     Act 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

     

    People speak in dismay over those who commit physical suicide. Even more horrifying is those who commit spiritual suicide by rejecting Jesus Christ as Saviour-by turning back to the Law, and or any other false god or ideology. Even Moses will accuse them for lying on him, for Moses preached the coming of Jesus Christ along with all the prophets. We have the testimony of Moses himself:

     

     Act 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

     

    All who believe in Jesus Christ will never be tricked or fooled into turning away from the only Saviour, who keeps us by His power. Praise Jesus, who enables us to both will and do out of His truth and love so that all who believe will never fall away from grace.

    love

    Heb 1:6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

     

    God forbids the worship of angels: Brothers and sisters do not be ignorant of the everlasting truth; do not let anyone trick, deceive, fool, or entice you into the worship the angels:

     

    Col 2:18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 

     

    Of the angels that sinned-refused to worship God any longer the Bible declares: Jde 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even the angels that sinned will be condemned to hell and finally the lake of fire to be punished forever, because they refused to worship God.

     

    Brothers and sisters worship the Triune God, for to God alone belongs the totality of all worship honor and praise. Neither pray nor call upon the angels. We ought not waver, hesitate nor fail to believe that our worship belongs to God alone and all our prayers etc., must absolutely be directed to God alone for He alone is worthy. All who believe will surely direct their worship and prayers to God alone, by His power, for He enables us to both will and do.

    love
