Four all-encompassing perks of the believer

Keeping ourselves in the love of God

From Genesis to Revelation, there's no doubt that all who set examples for us in our relationship with God recognized that we are laborers together with God (1 Corinthians 3:9). When God does his part, he expects us to do ours in order to bring about the desired outcome. Jude 20-21 is a reminder that… Continue reading Keeping ourselves in the love of God

Heresy Hunters Guide (Part 1): Why God has called Christians to be ‘Heresy Hunters’.

An important yet neglected function of the church is examined in this timely post.

Christians are called to love Jesus the way he asked us to:

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” John 14:15

Sadly, not only do many Christians neglect this command in the church today, the results of ignoring Jesus’ Words regarding false teachers has spiritual consequences:

  1. Unloving towards both God and neighbour;
  2. Exposing the church to more apostacy;
  3. Representing a bad witness to a lost and dying world;
  4. Spiritually harming many people in the church and in the community;
  5. Watering down and complicating the simplicity of the gospel and the Christian confession of faith;
  6. Making evangelism harder regarding new converts finding safe churches where the gospel is not tainted by false teaching or associated with false teachers.

It seems many choose to turn a deaf ear to Paul’s warning:

“I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from…

Against all odds, Israel prospers

Israel is on a lot of people's hate lists these days.

The US may not be as far gone as Europe, but we still have lots of room for improvement

I've said several times before how pleased I am about President Trump and his conservative policies when it comes to abortion, national security, federal regulations, taxes, Israel, and other things. I'm glad the US is not socialist or authoritarian as so much of the rest of the world (especially Europe), but we are not even… Continue reading The US may not be as far gone as Europe, but we still have lots of room for improvement

A pure and holy fire burning continually

In the minutest details of the tabernacle of the Old Testament, Jehovah gave spiritual revelations about himself and about his church that foretold of the nature of the New Testament. The opening verses of Leviticus 24 present God's intended nature of the church symbolized in the physical lamps and the golden candlestick with seven branches… Continue reading A pure and holy fire burning continually

Our lives have both an earthly & heavenly impact

In Ephesians 3:1-13, Paul has profound words from the Lord revealing to him the universal importance of his particular ministry. Paul also proceeds to explain how his ministry was just one small part of God's overall purpose for his church and how each one of us shares in a vast sphere of influence of not… Continue reading Our lives have both an earthly & heavenly impact

Don’t say I didn’t warn you: prophetic words of love

As the Lord Jesus drew his ministry on Earth to a close with anticipation of his brutal death, burial, and resurrection, he shared as many important prophecies as he could with his disciples. Why? He discloses the answers as to why in the opening verses of John 16. The context of the chapter is Christ… Continue reading Don’t say I didn’t warn you: prophetic words of love
