Led by the Spirit, PAUL PREDICTED EVIL in the last days: “In the last days, GRIEVOUS TIMES will come. For men will be LOVERS OF SELF, lovers of MONEY, boastful, ARROGANT, blasphemers, DISOBEDIENT to parents, unthankful, UNHOLY, without natural affection [HOMOSEXUALS], UNFORGIVING, slanderers, without self-control, FIERCE, no [NOT] LOVERS OF GOOD, traitors, headstrong, conceited, LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS OF GOD; holding a FORM OF GODLINESS [calling themselves ‘CHRISTIANS’], but having denied its power.”

Evil in the Last Days — Led by the Spirit, Paul predicted in 1 Timothy 3:1-8 (WEB):

“But know this, that in the last days, GRIEVOUS TIMES will come. For men will be LOVERS OF SELF, lovers of MONEY, boastful, ARROGANT, blasphemers, DISOBEDIENT to parents, unthankful, UNHOLY, without natural affection [HOMOSEXUALS], UNFORGIVING, slanderers, without self-control, FIERCE, no [NOT] LOVERS OF GOOD, traitors, headstrong, conceited, LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS OF GOD; holding a FORM OF GODLINESS [calling themselves ‘CHRISTIANS’], but having denied its power.

TURN AWAY FROM THESE, also. For some of these are people who creep into houses, and take captive gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, ALWAYS LEARNING, and NEVER ABLE TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH. Even as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so do these also OPPOSE THE TRUTH; men corrupted in mind, who concerning the faith, are rejected.

This week, pre-order a signed, numbered copy of Hyper-Grace: Exposing the Dangers of the Modern Grace Message, for $30, postage paid. (The book is 304 pages long and will be released January 7th.) (US ONLY)

Book Description:

The great deception of the 21st century

At a time when the church needs an urgent wake-up call and a fresh encounter with Jesus, the hyper-grace message is lulling many to sleep. Claiming to be a new revelation of grace, this teaching is gaining in popularity, but is it true? Or is the glorious truth of grace being polluted by errors, leading to backsliding, compromise, and even the abandonment of faith?

Hyper-Grace looks at the major teachings put forth by many adherents of this “grace reformation” and prayerfully compares those teachings with the Word of God, answering questions such as:

·          How do our sins affect our relationship with God?

·          What is the relevance of the Old Testament to our faith?

·          What does Jesus actually have to say about grace?

 Without watering down the Bible’s true message of grace, Michael Brown gives you the facts, demonstrating the dangers of this seductive message and showing you how to keep from being taken in.

Why Should We Believe in the Inerrancy of Scripture? — Jesus Believed in Verbal Inspiration; Paul based an argument upon the fact that a particular word is singular and not plural

There are scoffers who are leading people astray to just “do what feels good” — which is basically anarchy, giving demons a right to enter, control, and minimize sin.

The New Testament is particularly important for us, because we live in the new covenant, just like them. We can learn a lot from how they were led by the Holy Spirit and the proclamations they shared from the Holy Spirit, which are mostly still totally applicable today.

Thank God for the Bible and the Holy Spirit — Himself in us — Who gives us eyes to see, and Who is consistent over time!

We can trust His words to us and them. But if we throw out what He said to them, we’re on really shaky ground. Because we need to have a level of holiness so we’re only hearing the Holy Spirit’s one, “still, small voice.”

It’s important to know the written word of God and hear His voice today — and learn from what others are hearing, those are also obeying so they can be free.

A man was challenging the scoffers on Facebook a few hours ago, and included this link. I thought I’d share. This includes links to my other posts on this subject.

“Do what thou wilt” is Satanism, by the way. That’s where the anti-church, anti-Bible scoffers are leading many — to hell.

Why Should We Believe in the Inerrancy of Scripture?

by Brian Edwards

July 5, 2011

Introduction

“You don’t really believe the Bible is true, do you?”

The shock expressed by those who discover someone who actually believes the Bible to be without error is often quite amusing. Inevitably, their next question takes us right back to Genesis. But what does the Christian mean by “without error,” and why are we so sure?

[…]

Jesus Believed in Verbal Inspiration

In John 10:34 Jesus quoted from Psalm 82:6 and based His teaching upon a phrase: “I said, ‘You are gods.’” In other words, Jesus proclaimed that the words of this psalm were the words of God. Similarly, in Matthew 22:31–32 He claimed the words of Exodus 3:6 were given to them by God. In Matthew 22:43–44 our Lord quoted from Psalm 110:1 and pointed out that David wrote these words “in the Spirit,” meaning he was actually writing the words of God.

Paul Believed in Verbal Inspiration

Paul based an argument upon the fact that a particular word in the Old Testament is singular and not plural. Writing to the Galatians, Paul claimed that in God’s promises to Abraham, “He does not say, ‘And to seeds,’ as of many, but as of one, ‘And to your Seed,’ who is Christ” (Galatians 3:16). Paul quoted from Genesis 12:713:15; and 24:7. In each of these verses, our translators used the word “descendants,” but the Hebrew word is singular. The same word is translated “seed” in Genesis 22:18. Paul’s argument here is that God was not primarily referring to Israel as the offspring of Abraham, but to Christ.

What is significant is the way Paul drew attention to the fact that the Hebrew word in Genesis is singular. This demonstrates a belief in verbal inspiration because it mattered to Paul whether God used a singular or plural in these passages of the Old Testament. It is therefore not surprising Paul wrote that one of the advantages of being a Jew was the fact that “they have been entrusted with the very words of God” (Romans 3:2, NIV). Even many critics of the Bible agree that the Scriptures clearly teach a doctrine of verbal inerrancy.

Why Do Good People Become Silent—or Worse—about 9/11?

Written by Frances T. Shure, 2013

911-experts-shureFrances Shure, M.A., L.P.C.

“If what you are saying is true, I don’t want to know!” exclaimed a young male visitor at our 9/11 Truth booth at the Denver People’s Fair. He was referring to the evidence of controlled demolition of the three World Trade Center (WTC) skyscrapers on September 11, 2001.

“Why?” I asked.

“Because if what you are saying is true, I would become very negative. Psychologically, I would go downhill.”

With gratitude, I responded “Thank you!”

Surprised, he asked, “Why are you thanking me?”

“Because it’s rare to hear such raw truth. Thank you for being so honest.”

Softened by our exchange, the young man chatted with me a while longer before taking his leave. I have never forgotten him; he has likely never forgotten me. We both felt it. Paradoxically, deep truth had been shared.  …

To reiterate what I said in the film 9/11: Experts Speak Out, fear is the emotion that underlies most of the negative reactions toward 9/11 skeptics’ information: fear of receiving information that will turn our world upside down, fear of being overwhelmed by our own emotions, fear of psychological deterioration, fear our life will have to change, fear we’ll discover that the world is not a safe place, fear that our reputation will be tarnished or that we’ll lose our jobs, fear of being shunned or banished by friends and family, and fear of looking like a fool because we bought the official account so thoroughly.

This last reason may be true especially for intellectuals who often identify strongly with their intellect. None of us, however, like to feel bamboozled, as this often threatens our very identity and brings us very close to feeling betrayed. Carl Sagan knew this when he said,

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.5

Social psychologist and scholar Laurie Manwell tells us that one of her professors said that he could sum up human behavior with this statement: “People liked to be liked, they like to be right, and they like to be free—in that order.” Thus, most people will give up their need to be right or free if their need to be liked is threatened.6 Why is this?

The fear of banishment is surely among the greatest fears we humans harbor, albeit often unconsciously.We are social creatures. We need others in order to survive, and we need to have a sense of belonging. To have some sense of wholeness and well-being, we need to feel connected to others, to love and to be loved. This is the reason that ridicule and shaming are such potent strategies used—consciously or unconsciously—to censor those with views that diverge from a culture’s sacred mythology.

A “sacred myth” is a special story, found in every culture, whether true, untrue, or partially true, that tells us who we are and why we are doing what we are doing.8

What is our American sacred myth? It goes something like this:

We are a truly exceptional nation with exceptional forefathers. We rebelled against tyranny and established a democratic republic, a model that the world has largely accepted and imitated. Our country is the purveyor of democracy and freedom around the world and our interventions in other countries are benevolent actions. On September 11, 2001, we were caught off-guard when al Qaeda terrorists in a sneak attack, similar to that at Pearl Harbor, succeeded in flying commercial airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the most significant wound to our homeland to date. However, true to the American spirit, we immediately rose to the challenge to militarily smite the world of terrorists who hate us because of our freedoms. This is why we have an unending Global War on Terror.

If we can set aside this belief in our sacred myth, look at the evidence, and recognize that 9/11 was a false flag operation, then we may also fear severe repercussions from corrupt authorities if we should speak out. As one person told me, “I appreciate everything you all are doing with this 9/11 issue, but I hope you understand, I have children; I can’t get involved with this.”

Fear is an integral part of the human condition; and yet, if we are committed to psycho-spiritual growth, we do not let fear dictate what we do—or do not do. We can be aware of the fear while not letting it rule our lives. …

Many of us unconsciously relate to our governmental leaders as parental figures on whom we project our (often unmet) needs for a protective parent. We even agree culturally to the term “our founding fathers.”

EXCITING message at Abbott Loop this morning by Josh Tanner: “Ambassadors of Reconciliation!” — ‘ONE’ can still happen this year “that the world will know” — Jesus’ heart-cry-prayer for us in John 17!

I updated my thinking on this message 6 weeks later, here:

 

The Most Disappointing Message on RECONCILIATION (Abbott Loop) — At first I was excited, but then MY HEART SANK, realizing once-saved-always-saved destroyed the fruit, which should have been massive. Josh Tanner taught that people who hurt people and refuse to get right will have ‘RECONCILIATION PARTIES’ in heaven? • False doctrine is keeping ‘ONE’ from happening so God can show up and “the world will know” (John 17)!

And here:

Josh Tanner’s “Ambassadors of Reconciliation” message — People who have hurt people will go to heaven and can reconcile there???##!!!!

I just posted this on my Facebook page:

EXCITING message at Abbott Loop this morning by Josh Tanner: “Ambassadors of Reconciliation!”

‘ONE’ can still happen this year, “that the world will know” — Jesus’ heart-cry-prayer for us in John 17! The great revival, The Third Great Awakening that will transform Anchorage and greatly affect our nation!

Some things Josh said:

“We need to learn how to become excellent at reconciliation.”

“Am I wrecking or reconciling? You’re going one way or the other.”

He had them all say “I was wrong” out loud at minute-29.

Wow!

Selah.

The message wasn’t all great, though. At minute-16, Josh said we can hate people and still go to heaven, and then get right with people there. What?!

Huh? People who hate people don’t go to heaven (Gal. 5:19-6:9), which I’ve also proven in my article, linked below. Josh is still teaching the once-saved-always-saved heresy that is deceiving many into thinking we don’t need to walk clean now so we’ll have clean hearts to be able to enter then.

Josh did enthusiastically say we shouldn’t wait, though.

Overall, it was very good, and this is now only the second message I’ve heard in my entire life devoted only to reconciliation. The first was also by Josh in October, but I like this one much better. Very exciting, actually!

Praise God!

I’ll include some key links about this below. I’ve been pushing for this hard since 1990 — at one time too hard. But I’ve hung in there, because I know this is God’s desire for us, and we can do it!

Though the U.S. is dark, the future can be bright for us no matter what happens!!! : )

Thank you, Josh for leading this reconciliation charge!

Rick Joyner: “REPENTANCE includes RESTITUTION for the wrongs that have caused injury to others”

Can ‘Christians’ use Paul’s “Forgetting the things which are behind…I press on” statement as an excuse to not get right with those they’ve hurt? Paul also said: “I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” What if you don’t repent? And what will happen when you do? The Third Great Awakening can start with us!!! We can all be happy — ‘ONE’!

My Personal Purity Battle Plan: 28 Things I Try to Never Forget

DON’T GIVE DEMONS A PLACE!!

Jesus gave this extreme example to demonstrate that we need to do whatever we have to in order to not lust in our heart, committing adultery, so we won’t lose our whole body in hell — despite what today’s grace changing pastors and K-LOVE say.

Mt. 5:27-30:

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery;’ but I tell you that everyone who gazes at a woman to lust after her HAS COMMITTED ADULTERY with her already IN HIS HEART. If your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna. If your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off, and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna.

My Personal Purity Battle Plan: 28 Things I Try to Never Forget

by Jason T. George

I’ve learned the hard way that pornography addiction will never be broken unless there’s genuine biblical repentance, and I’ve also learned the hard way that genuine biblical repentance always requires radical life changes. To break the chains of pornography addiction, I had to go beyond the never-ending cycle of sin-guilt-shame-sorrow-confession-rededication-repeat.

Many years ago, I began sincerely asking God, Christian counselors, and myself: “What do I need to change in my life to keep myself from committing this sin again?” With that question in the forefront of my mind, I’ve spent the last 10 years developing, editing, and striving to live what I call my personal purity battle plan.

That’s what you’re about to read, but before you read it, I need to make three things very clear …

  • I’m not saying or implying that every Christian man needs to do everything that I do. This is my personal purity battle plan that fits my life with my specific struggles and history. Take from it whatever you feel will help you.
  • I’m not saying or implying that this is the “silver bullet” that will make you and I porn-free for life. Believe me, I totally realize that without God’s Spirit empowering me, I’ve got nothing but words on a page!
  • This is still a work in progress, just like me. Your feedback is welcomed and appreciated.

My Personal Purity Battle Plan

1. Every morning refocus, renew, refill, and realign with God’s Word (reading, studying, memorizing, meditating, or listening to a sermon). Remember, freedom follows fullness. Beholding the glory of God transforms a man. So I keep myself full on the Living Word and keep continually beholding Jesus Christ, the glory of God. (Hebrews 12:2; John 4:13-14; 2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Peter 2:2; Psalm 119:9-11; Colossians 1:16; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 4:23-24)

2. Every morning review my Personal Purity Motivation. (Romans 12:2)

3. Every morning spend some time in prayer, recommitting myself to Christ as a living and holy sacrifice, and ask for His grace to live that this day. Without Him, I can’t do it! (Romans 12:1; Matthew 26:41; James 4:3; John 14:13-14)

I Am a Christian Addicted To Porn

addicted to porn

[Bible Question] Hi I’ve been addicted toporn for about a year now. I am a Christian struggling with this temptation and I go back and forth worshiping god one day, and then the next doing porn. I’m sick of being tempted and I wish I was not addicted to it. I know what I should be doing and that is building my relationship with God, but I feel like porn just never stops in my life. No one knows that I’m addicted to porn except God, and I want to power through this with God and I know I can do it. I just have to stop. Could you please give me some advice, and some encouragement so that I stop this horrible temptation and get back to what matters most and that’s worshiping God. I don’t. Want to tell anyone about this, and I just want to get it done with.

[Bible AnswerYou are not a Christian addicted to porn as you think. Your spiritual identity, as God sees you, is: adulterer. You are NOT a Christian. It is impossible to be an adulterer and a Christian simultaneously. You are addicted to lust (mental adultery) like a drunkard is addicted to alcohol. Salvation is the cure in both cases (1 Cor. 6:9-11). You need to repent, that is, turn away from your adultery (Mt. 5:28). So, get your magazines, videos, CDs etc. and all other sources of sexual temptation and rip them to pieces. Smash the things that won’t rip, then burn it all so no one else can be hurt by the same demonic material which the devil is using to ensnare you as you travel down the road to hell. To be aware of your true identity will help you realize how vital it is for you to turn 180 degrees the other way and become a faithful follower of the Lord Jesus. After you sincerely and humbly ask God for forgiveness and salvation and repent, you need to wash out your mind. It has become defiled by the images you have allowed to enter in. You have chosen to look at and ponder pictures of immoral women, which are destructive to you. Now you need to similarly chose to saturate your mind with God’s word (spiritual medicine) and ponder what you are reading from Scripture, putting it into practice. Such will enable you to walk holy and clean before God. You will also get spiritual insights by doing that. Read at least 3 to 5 chapters per day. Since TV is a lust generator, stop watching TV. You must guard your SOUL, your most valuable possession. Stop going to places of temptation and if your so-called friends are means of temptation, stay away from them. Read this about spiritual safeguards. This is very serious. It is a matter of life or death! Eternity hangs in the balance. Now that you know what needs to be done, DO IT for your own good. God isn’t going to do it for you! Eternal life can be yours. There is NO eternal security.

(video) Debate: Who Makes The Final Choice in Salvation, God or Man? — “Scripture says: choose whom you will serve. You’ll be commended for choosing rightly and condemned for choosing wrongly. This is God’s sovereign choice” – Michael Brown | Calvinism is the great cop-out, giving those who aren’t overcoming false comfort in their willful sin

Normally, I listen to the entirety of what I post, but Michael Brown, a former Calvinist so nails it in his introductory statement that I don’t have any reservations of posting this now, and try to listen to the rest when I have more time.

I read the Bible on my own before I heard about Calvinism. Man’s responsibility is so completely consistent throughout that when I heard about Calvinism it seemed like a bad mathematical deductive reading of Scripture. I was blown away that anyone could come up with T.U.L.I.P. out of what is written. This is nuts!:

Total Depravity (also known as Total Inability and Original Sin)
Unconditional Election
Limited Atonement (also known as Particular Atonement)
Irresistible Grace
Perseverance of the Saints (also known as Once Saved Always Saved) (source)

In this debate, Bruce Bennett may actually give away why Calvinism is popular with so many. Calvinism gives those who aren’t overcoming a false sense of comfort in their willful sin. Calvinism is the great cop-out:

“If it comes down to my walk, a lot of people are in trouble — if it’s dependent upon me.” – Bruce Bennett (at the 2-hour 16-minutes mark)

Calvinists celebrate the idea of God’s sovereignty to the point of absurdity, claiming they are giving God more glory, but they’re really demeaning God’s character, His fairness. They believe God alone decides who goes to heaven and who goes to hell. God choses us. We can’t even respond. He does it all. It’s all up to Him. Yuck!

I had a professor in seminary who actually taught us that we think we have a free will, but we really don’t. That’s how sovereign God is. I would say that’s how wrong the theology is, when what is clearly stated in scripture is trumped by hypothetical theory that makes no sense, as Michael Brown fully points out.

Is Israel an Apartheid State? The Facts Say ‘Yes’: Israel apartheid policies enacted against Palestinians

These truths are not being reported on ‘Christian’ radio/TV or Fox News, so the evangelical community is aiding and abetting  a brutal tyranny, instead of helping righteousness happen, by supporting Israel no matter what, giving them carte blanch to do whatever with US funds.

APARTHEID

There are differences and similarities between Apartheid South Africa and Israeli-occupied Palestine. Israeli officials point to the differences to refute claims the occupation policies constitute apartheid. However, apartheid means separate as well as applying policies of segregation and social and economic discrimination. Palestinians are subjected to a military court system, while Israelis are under the jurisdiction of a civil court system; a segregated school system within historic Palestine; loss of freedom of movement because of the Apartheid Wall, which has forced Palestinians in the West Bank into isolated cantons. Palestinians in Gaza are segregated and locked inside the world’s largest open-air prison. Former South African Prime Minister Hendrick Verwoerdt himself called Israel an “Apartheid state.” (Rand Daily Mail, Nov. 23, 1961).

Israel apartheid policies enacted against Palestinians

In Israel, Jews and Palestinians are labeled from birth and treated differently throughout their lives. They have unequal access to social and economic privileges including land, education, employment and social welfare. 1, 43

Separate is never equal
The descendants of Palestinians that remained in Israel after the 1948 war are now over 1 million people, approximately 20 percent of the population. These Palestinians face rampant discrimination. The discrimination is sometimes from individuals and other times, systemic and codified in law. 2, 44

Paul’s Tears

Paul’s Tears

Posted on November 29, 2011 by Eternal Life Blog

Contrary to the way Christian people tend to envision the Apostle Paul, he was a man of tears and sorrows as he served God. He was not the photogenic smiley type of our day with a toothy appearance. That is crystal clear. His righteous sorrow which produced heartfelt tears came from various church related issues, which he apparently considered serious. His grief reflects his godly heart and the seriousness of the related offenses. Let’s observe those offenses and learn:

For I wrote you out of great distress and anguish of heart and with many tears, not to grieve you but to let you know the depth of my love for you. (2 Cor 2:4)

The context of 2 Cor. 2:4 refers to his previous epistle, in which he addressed different issues including expelling the sexually immoral wicked man from among their congregation (1 Cor. 5:13). His God inspired directives were the proper course of action for them to act on, though they may not come easy. In a different letter, Paul expresses how hurtful it was for him to observe the many who were living as enemies of the cross:

For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears,many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. (Phil 3:18)

Paul aimed to always please the Lord, knowing that all will be “revealed before the judgment seat of Christ; that each one may receive the things in the body according to what he has done, whether good or bad.”

Can ‘Christians’ use Paul’s “Forgetting the things which are behind…I press on” statement as an excuse to not get right with those they’ve hurt? Paul also said: “I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” What if you don’t repent? And what will happen when you do? The Third Great Awakening can start with us!!! We can all be happy — ‘ONE’!

This straightforward message is meant to avert the untimely death of a “child” among nations. In a time when nations all over the world point at America calling her everything but Christian, the voice of a “minor” prophet once again speaks a major truth: “It is time to quit playing church.” The author exhorts modern-day clergy to be prophets instead of puppets, agonizers instead of organizers. In spite of this age of mass-communication, he says we are failing to save the contented from the curse of compromise, imitation and professionalism.

Leonard Ravenhill (1907–1994) was an English Christian Evangelist and author who focused on the subjects of prayer and revival. He is best known for challenging the modern church (through his books and sermons) to compare itself to the early Christian Church as chronicled in the Book of Acts. His most notable book is Why Revival Tarries which has sold over a million copies worldwide.[1] (Wikipedia)

Pornography Addiction a Growing Problem Among Women — “Afterwards I just hated myself for giving in and getting off on images that treated women like pieces of meat. But I kept going back”

From: Charisma

Pornography Addiction a Growing Problem Among Women

“It was an ordinary weekday morning when Caroline first noticed how much pornography was taking over her life. With 15 minutes to go before she was due to leave for a job interview, she opened up her laptop to print off an extra copy of her C.V. and there, onscreen, was a grab she’d saved from [a porn site].

“’I remember the feeling of being sucked in, really wanting that two-minute fix, that numbness I got when I used porn,’ says Caroline. ‘I was stressed out, and I risked being late for my interview, but I pressed play anyway and fast-forwarded it to the bit I wanted. It took two minutes. … Afterwards I just hated myself for giving in and getting off on images that treated women like pieces of meat. But I kept going back.’”

Those are the opening paragraphs of a story from The Guardian called “Why More and More Women Are Using Pornography.” Revelations of female porn addiction are an eye-opening issue. Most people assume the problem is exclusive to testosterone-driven men. But a new study reveals that women are struggling with graphic sexual immorality in droves.

According to an October report from the Pew Research Center, 12 percent of U.S. adults who use the Internet admitted to watching “adult videos.” Twenty-five percent of them were male, and 8 percent were female.

Whether or not those numbers are accurate—it’s likely that many porn watchers didn’t admit it—they are rising. In 2007, only 6 percent admitted to watching adult videos. That means the overall rate has doubled in just six years.

But get this: Online porn viewership has quadrupled for women in just three years. A 2010 Pew report shows only 2 percent of women admitted to watching online porn. And again, it’s likely that the true numbers are even greater.

And that’s not the worst of it. CovenantEyes has gathered shocking statistics from various studies. Here are a few of them:

  • According to a study published in the Journal of Adolescent Research, about half (49 percent) of young adult women agree that viewing pornography is an acceptable way of expressing one’s sexuality.

John 3:16 Has Deceived Many!

This famous one verse, John 3:16, shown by itself over and over has DECEIVED MANY into thinking all we have to do is believe. But please read further what Jesus fully said. I also include what Jesus clearly says later in John 15 — which is usually, today, read (and sung) backwards — twisted into “never let go”:

John 3:

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God didn’t send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through him. 18 He who believes in him is not judged. He who doesn’t believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God. 19 This is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil hates the light, and doesn’t come to the light, lest his works would be exposed. 21 But HE WHO DOES THE TRUTH comes to the light, that his WORKS may be revealed, that they have been DONE IN GOD.”

John 15:

5 I am the vine. You are the branches. He who REMAINS IN ME, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. 6 IF A MAN DOESN’T REMAIN IN ME, he is THROWN OUT as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

“Never let go” is a myth.

We must abide “in Him” — “that the world will know” (John 17)!

“Only believe” + “never let go” = DISASTER

Requirements For Eternal Life: “If anyone would come after Me, he must DENY HIMSELF and TAKE UP HIS CROSS daily and FOLLOW ME.”

From: Eternal Life Blog (Dan Corner)

Requirements For Eternal Life

Posted on October 2, 2012 by Dan Corner

This will be a strange teaching for many in our day, because there are so manyfalse teachers, who are wrongly teaching about this issue! The primary passage here to be focused in upon is Luke 9:23, but to better understand the meaning of that verse, the next two verses are also cited:take up your cross

Then he said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?” (Luke 9:23-25)

The Lord Jesus (and his apostles) spoke the same salvation truth in different ways throughout his teachings. For example, it is found in John 3:16 conveyed in the meaning and present tense form of believe, the necessity to be born again (in John 3:3,5,7) for initial salvation, which begins a brand new life, etc. In Luke 9:23 he taught if we would come after eternal life (Jesus is eternal life in 1 John 1:2), then we must:

  • deny ourselves
  • take up our cross daily and
  • follow Jesus

Clearly Luke 9:24,25 show those are requirements for eternal life and nothing less! So Luke 9:23 is one of the many salvation teachings given by the Lord Jesus. Let’s take a closer look at his requirements.

Must Deny Himself

To deny ourselves to get eternal life, in part, means to crucify the flesh:

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. (Gal 5:24)

That means one will have to repent (turn from evil) to get eternal life in the first place. To deny ourselves also means that we will put God’s will before ours. We must put his word into practice (Luke 8:21). God becomes primary and we take a lesser role. This affects our ambitions, goals and priorities.

Must Take Up His Cross Daily

Back in Jesus’ day, when someone took up his cross he was carrying it to his own execution, as happened with Jesus himself at Calvary. In other words, to go after Jesus and eternal life could be deadly (and was for many over the centuries). We must be willing to die physically, if necessary, to have Jesus! If we disown him, he will disown us (Mt. 10:33; 2 Tim. 2:12). We are to do this daily!

Must Follow Jesus

To follow Jesus means that he is our focus. He is the one we are looking to and obeying over all others. He is the object of our faith and trust for salvation. Jesus described his sheep (the Christians) in John 10:27 as:

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

The next verse (John 10:28) explicitly shows again that following Jesus(continuous tense) is necessary for eternal life. That passage is, unfortunately, often cited as support for the heresy of once saved always saved and twisted to even include backsliders, who are NOT following Jesusanymore!

“There is more to forgiveness than meets the eye”

I haven’t gotten a long prophecy in long time, but I hear various things every day. Many are people to pray for; insight about what’s going on; etc.. “We can all hear and obey.”

I heard this about an hour ago. I’m not sure if it’s about us being forgiven, or what it takes to really forgiven and be free from the James-3 curses people wish on us, which is rampant, today.

Something to contemplate and ask God about.

Over the years, I have committed to memory numerous quotes that have stirred my heart and impacted my life, and in the days of the Brownsville Revival, we used to post some of the best, most succinct quotes on the large marquees in front our ministry school.

Today, with the explosion of social media, we can post and tweet these quotes day and night, to the edification and even transformation of many. Here are 10 of my all-time favorites:

[…]

2. “How shall I feel at the judgment, if multitudes of missed opportunities pass before me in full review, and all my excuses prove to be disguises of my cowardice and pride” (W.E. Sangster). …

3. “The man whose little sermon is ‘repent’ sets himself against his age, and will for the time being be battered mercilessly by the age whose moral tone he challenges. There is but one end for such a man—‘off with his head!’ You had better not try to preach repentance until you have pledged your head to heaven” (Joseph Parker). This quote was another of the jewels found in Why Revival Tarries, and it ultimately inspired Keith Green to write the song “I Pledge My Head to Heaven.” Are you really ready to preach repentance?

4. “When I really enjoy God I feel my desires of Him the more insatiable and my thirstings after holiness the more unquenchable. O this pleasing pain. It makes my soul press after God” (David Brainerd). People who are sick sometimes lose their appetite, and when the appetite returns, it is often a sign of health. The same applies spiritually. How hungry are you? That says a lot about your spiritual health.

5. “Satan is so much more in earnest than we are—he buys up the opportunity while we are wondering how much it will cost” (Amy Carmichael).

Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.”

No Condemnation NOW so No Condemnation when we meet Jesus face to FACE — Hearts pure, smiling so big!!! FREEeeeeeeee———–DOM!!!!!!!

THE BOTTOM LINE

Today’s ‘Christianity’ doesn’t ring true, theologically or practically.

If we don’t feel right now we’re not going to feel right then, no matter what positive-encouragement K-LOVE sings 24/7.

Paul learned how to live free from condemnation. He actually did what he said all ‘Christians’ must do: “work out your own salvation through fear and trembling.” Paul always made sure he was right with God and all men:

“I also practice always having a conscience void of offense toward God and men” (Acts 24:16)

– –

No Condemnation now so No Condemnation when we meet Jesus face to Face —

Hearts pure, smiling so big!!!

FREEeeeeeeee———–DOM!!!!!!!

“There is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.” (Romans 8:1)

If we have guilty consciences now, imagine how guilty we’ll feel when we meet Jesus face to Face.

How can we expect to be guilt-free then if we feel guilty now?

Nothing magical happens between now and then.

We don’t suddenly get clean then if we weren’t clean on earth.

We must be clean now so we’ll be clean then.

We need to be HOT now so we’re not LUKEWARM then — so Jesus won’t vomit us out of His mouth (Rev. 3:14-22).

We need to be OVERCOMERS now to have fought the good fight and be overcomers then — so our names will not be removed from the Book of Life (Rev. 3:1-6).

We need to be right with everyone in Christ now, to feel right now so we’ll get the thumbs up then, like Paul made sure he did:

I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” (Acts 24:16)

Hearts pure now so hearts pure then.

Freedom now so FREEeeeeeeee———–DOM then!!!!!!!

When we willfully sin and therefore feel guilty, we must get right, so we’ll feel right now to feel right then.

Why do we think we can have guilty consciences now and Jesus will say “well done” and “enter…,” then?

God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him. In this, love has been made perfect among us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because as he is, even so are we in this world. (1 John 4:16,17)

Look what the NIV did to Romans 8:1 — They changed the entire meaning of the verse and leave no requirement or prerequisite to being free from condemnation!

Charles Finney: ETERNAL SECURITY is a TICKET TO HELL — “If a person gets the idea that because he is converted therefore he will assuredly go to heaven, that man will almost assuredly go to hell”

[ video ] David Pawson on PAUL and JAMES: Paul was defending Gentiles from JEWISH *works-of-the-law* LEGALISM; James was defending Jews from Gentile LICENSE TO SIN. • When Paul says ‘WORKS’ he means *works of the law,* but James means *actions*. • “Faith without actions cannot save you.” • FAITH + ACTIONS = SAVING FAITH!

(video) David Pawson: “Once Saved Always Saved?” — “80 PASSAGES in the New Testament WARN US not to lose what we’ve found in Christ” • “People who believe in ‘once saved always saved’ believe it because they’ve listened to someone who taught it” • “Preachers rarely quote Romans 11: ‘if you do not continue in His kindness you too will be cut off’” — Jesus said: only those who overcome will not have their names removed from the Book of Life

The Welsh Revival of 1904-05 by J. Edwin Orr: A Countrywide Asbury-like REVIVAL! The 4 Points: #1 Confess any known sin, and put any wrong done to man right again. #2 Put away any doubtful habit. #3 Obey the Spirit promptly. #4 Confess your faith publicly.

Effects of the WELSH REVIVAL 1904-05: Whole communities were radically changed FROM DEPRAVITY TO GLORIOUS GOODNESS. The CRIME RATE dropped, often to nothing. THE POLICE had little more to do than supervise the coming and going of the people to the chapel prayer meetings. THE UNDERGROUND MINES echoed with the sounds of PRAYER and HYMNS, instead of nasty jokes and gossip. People who had fallen out BECAME FRIENDS AGAIN!!!!!!!

My 1990 Key-to-Revival Prophecy: “There is might and there is power and there is glory, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right, until we love our brother enough to…”

‘Christian’ admits he doesn’t want to “walk according to the Spirit” to be “in Christ” — “My heart sinks to think that I have to live a life pleasing to God ‘in the Spirit’ before I can be certain of my standing with God.”

It’s wonderful to see honesty instead of hedging. A man admitted this to a pastor:

“I am confused. Romans 8:1 tells me that the one in Christ Jesus is no longer under condemnation and yet when I read the King James Version, that is not the case. My heart sinks to think that I have to live a life pleasing to God “in the Spirit” before I can be certain of my standing with God. I can never look at my life for even a day and say I am fully walking “after the Spirit.” I have anxious thoughts and sin is sadly a daily reality in my life. I can really identify with Paul’s struggle against sin in Romans chapter 7. Yet it would seem that Paul’s whole message of justification by faith alone would be destroyed if the King James Version rendering of the Romans 8:1 verse is correct. What is going on? Can you provide any insight here?”

Sadly, with his response, the pastor put the man back to sleep spiritually, convincing the man he is absolutely secure in his sin, and that his “anxious thoughts” are conviction, not condemnation. All anyone has to do is let Paul interpret what he meant in verse 1 to see that his statement in verse 1 should not be abridged [and the NIV is based on the less reliable Egyptian texts – see first link, below].

Verses 4-17 IN EVERY TRANSLATION state the very same thing that Paul said in the KJV-etc. versions of verse 1. It’s as if pastors spend so much time talking and texting that they don’t carefully read the Bible anymore:

Romans 8:1-19 (WEB):

There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are *in Christ Jesus*, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death. 3 For what the law couldn’t do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God did, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh; 4 that the ordinance of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace….

12 So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 13 For if you live after the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God. 15 For you didn’t receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God; 17 and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him. 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which will be revealed toward us. 19 For the creation waits with eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.

Also, the ‘Christian’ who didn’t want to stop willfully sinning to go to heaven said his life was more like Paul’s in Romans 7, which was before Paul became born-again:

Leonard Ravenhill: Romans 7 vs 8 — Life before the Son vs Life in the Son — “Romans 7 is a funeral march, Romans 8 is a wedding march … it’s a Spirit dominated life in chapter 8.”

Romans 8:1 is FACT:

“There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are *in Christ Jesus*, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

We need to let Paul interpret Paul, reading the entirety of what Paul writes, instead of running with the greatest-hits, partial verses and phrases that are on signs during football games and are played 24/7 on positive, encouraging K-LOVE.
