Exclusivity Invites Rebellion

Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).  That’s straight forward and simple.  It is the exclusivity of Jesus’ claims and His actions, especially His rising from the dead, that the whole world is in rebellion against. To see it from God’s perspective, read Psalm the second Psalm. Why do the nations conspire  and the peoples plot in vain?  The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,  “Let us break their chains and … Continue reading Exclusivity Invites Rebellion

Proper tools, better translation

I continue to see English speakers using Strong’s as an end-all tool for Biblical investigation. If you know me,  I’m constantly urging the inquisitive to go back to the original language in order to discern the full meaning. Strong’s is not a word-for-word transliteration; but rather, a pronunciation key.  Below, Dr. Michael Heiser explains these issues in an article for WND. Using Strong’s Concordance and its dictionary, familiar tools for many readers, the speaker asserts that Jesus would have uttered the words of Luke 10:18 “in Hebrew” and then goes on to focus on the words for “lightning” and “heights”/”heavens.” … Continue reading Proper tools, better translation

Repentance With Faith Leads To Salvation

GOD’S HOLY STANDARDS as revealed in holy scriptures are eternal, they are fixed and will not be altered to suit a person’s sinful lifestyle. God’s Word will not change so a person can live in sin. God is holy and when a person is convicted of his sins by the Holy Spirit, and when he repents and turns from his sins and places his faith in Jesus to save him, a radical change will take place in his life. That person becomes a brand new person, and is born of God and indwelt by the Holy Spirit of God. He … Continue reading Repentance With Faith Leads To Salvation

Hebrew Word Study – Ahavah (Love)

LOVE Hey      Beyt     Hey    Aleph 5           2            5          1 ahavah   By CJ LOVIK  http://livingwordin3d.com/discovery/2016/09/06/love-hebrew-word-study/   The four letters in the amazing Hebrew word “ahavah” are translated into English as “love.”  Love can describe everything from an intimate relationship, such as the love between a husband and wife, to the love that is displayed in selfless service to others such as the love that a father and mother have for a dependent child or a dear friend. Let’s take a  look at the first time the word Love is used in the Scriptures.  In Genesis 22:1-2 we read one of the … Continue reading Hebrew Word Study – Ahavah (Love)

Wake Up!

From a brother, Johnny. I’m deeply saddened that most Christians don’t realize how intelligent a creature Satan really is. Not intending to exalt or glorify him one iota he does possess a great deal of Godly knowledge, a knowledge that’s infinitely above the capacity of our tiny mortal brains no matter what percent of them we actually use. Jesus went out of his way warning us of his cunning and deceptiveness and Satan is coming at us from fronts we didn’t even know we had while most Christians are pleasantly sitting back on their laurels waiting upon the Rapture to … Continue reading Wake Up!

Illegal Dealings & House Weakness

Why isn’t TREASON a disqualifying deed?  Where are the protests demanding her imprisonment? Last I knew, it was illegal to aid or abet the enemy.  This is the modus operandi of the Obama Administration, and the personal tag-line of Mrs. Clinton: morality be damned in preference of the New World Order. If you are oppressed by the downward spiral of the United States, of you are burdened by the unfathomable decline of decency in our country, if you are a Patriot and want to do something,  post the #StandfortheRepublic hash tag on your social media pages,  and comment here what you … Continue reading Illegal Dealings & House Weakness

It’s the Courts, Stupid!

Reshaping the courts for a generation Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Human Rights Commission, and fellow for Human Rights and Constitutional Governance at the Family Research Council,  Ken Blackwell serves on the board of the NRA and has served as Ohio’s state treasurer and Secretary of State.  He writes an elucidating article in June’s Newsmax (beginning on page 52) detailing how the attacks on our First Amendment rights by the left have come even during conservative majorities, and expose us all to the liberal extreme agenda. Through examples of tyranny used as a whip against political conservatives, he draws a picture … Continue reading It’s the Courts, Stupid!

The Unseen Foe Behind Rising Evil

  “The Bible reveals that the unseen world has rulers and majesties and tremendous beings with whom man can get into communication and be possessed by…” – Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest “…some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons…”   1 Tim. 4:1 For too long, many “agents of change” have tried to discredit the Bible and silence Christians. Politicians, educators, and media masters have joined the battle against biblical truth and morality. Throughout time, Satan has seeded doubt, depravity, despair and death. The following is from Berit Kjos, The Unseen … Continue reading The Unseen Foe Behind Rising Evil
