(vid) Michael Brown: Experiencing God Debate – Why John MacArthur's View is Unbiblical

John MacArthur also pushes the once-saved-also-saved heresy (OSAS).
– –
If we abide in Christ, loving one another (v. 12), we get sap from the Holy Spirit to bear fruit that remains. Jesus then says in v. 11: “that my joy may remain in you, and THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE MADE FULL.”
Jesus says in John 15:

1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer. 2 Every branch in me that doesn’t bear fruit, he takes away. Every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already pruned clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. 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. If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you. 8 “In this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; and so you will be my disciples. 9 Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love. 11 I have spoken these things to you, that my joy may remain in you, and THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE MADE FULL.

12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another, even as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you.

Let's Be Like Paul, so we can be Together as 'ONE' — Paul worked out his own salvation through fear and trembling, running his race to win — and so can we. 'ONE' Can Happen!!!

Sadly, virtually all churches today have disqualified leaders who are not blameless, and who teach diabolical false doctrines that are putting the church into bondage.
But we can be like Paul, overcoming by God’s grace, running our race to win!!!
I put together this list:
– –
Paul worked out his own salvation by God’s grace/enablement/empowerment, as he taught others to do:

 …work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God who works in you both to will and to work, for his good pleasure. – Php. 2:12-13

I beat my body and bring it into submission, lest by any means, after I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected. – 1 Cor. 9:27

Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts. – Gal. 5:24

Paul didn’t just say it, but actually made Jesus Lord of his life, ‘pressing on’ to take hold of ‘that’:

I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord, for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and count them nothing but refuse, that I may gain Christ and be found in him…. that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, becoming conformed to his death; if by any means I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Not that I have already obtained, or am already made perfect; but I press on, if it is so that I may take hold of that for which also I was taken hold of by Christ Jesus. Brothers, I don’t regard myself as yet having taken hold, but one thing I do. Forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, think this way. If in anything you think otherwise, God will also reveal that to you. Nevertheless, to the extent that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule. Let us be of the same mind. – Php. 3:8-16

As Paul predicted, most are on the highway to hell. We, however, can overcome like Paul:

For the time will come when they will not listen to the sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves teachers after their own lusts; and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside to fables. …

I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith. – 2 Tim. 4:3-4, 7

Paul made sure he was ALWAYS right with God and men:

Herein I also practice *ALWAYS* having a CONSCIENCE VOID OF OFFENSE toward God and men. (Acts 24:16).

The writer to Hebrews was in complete sync with Paul:

Therefore let us also, seeing we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising its shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

For consider him who has endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, that you don’t grow weary, fainting in your souls. …

Therefore, lift up the hands that hang down and the feeble knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that which is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.

Follow after peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no man will see the Lord, looking carefully lest there be any man who falls short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and many be defiled by it; lest there be any sexually immoral person, or profane person, like Esau, who sold his birthright for one meal. For you know that even when he afterward desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for a change of mind though he sought it diligently with tears. – Heb. 12:1-3, 12-17

When Paul saw Jesus face to Face, he had no condemnation. Why, because he made sure he walked according to the Spirit. He put to death the deeds of the body so he could live:

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. …

the mind of the Spirit is life and peace….

…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.

we are children of God; 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. – Romans 8:1, 6, 13-14, 16-17

Let’s be like Paul, overcoming by the Holy Spirit’s grace/enablement, running our races to win!:

…let us walk by the same rule. Let us be of the same mind. – Php. 3:8-16

Jesus desires not only that we abide in Him so we can live eternally with Him, but that we’d be ‘ONE’ with Him and each other that His joy would remain in us and that OUR JOY WOULD BE FULL!:

1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer. 2 Every branch in me that doesn’t bear fruit, he takes away. Every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already pruned clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. 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. If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you. 8 “In this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; and so you will be my disciples. 9 Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love. 11 I have spoken these things to you, that my joy may remain in you, and THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE MADE FULL.

12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another, even as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you.

Jesus promised to give us His glory as we become ‘ONE’ with each other in Him that the WORLD WILL KNOW!:

Not for these only do I pray, but for those also who believe in me through their word, that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that you sent me.

The glory which you have given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, even as we are one; I in them, and you in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that you sent me, and loved them, even as you loved me. Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, which you have given me, for you loved me before the foundation of the world. that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I in them.” – John 17:20-26

‘ONE’ is what we should be focusing on — overcoming, like Paul, strong together:

‘Let Us Be ONE’ Prophecy Continues 10/8/08: “It’s TOO LATE to REVERSE what’s been done for MY MEN have been REJECTED … Now is the Time to OVERCOME and GET RIGHT With ALL … FREEeeeeeeeeeeeee———DOM at last … Your HEART will SWELL with LOVE and it will be EASY to REMAIN In Me when others are On The BOAT With You”

Reconciliation/getting right with all examples:

I’ve long been earnestly trying to figure out why most run away from the truth, since I’m not wired that way at all. I think John B. Wells’ guest nails it. People are running away from their Conscience — with dire consequence!

Freedom quote transcribed by Jeff Fenske from Caravan to Midnight, Ep. 487 – 3-11-16

Joe Plummer comes aboard with admonitions for preserving national sovereignty.

* * *

John B. Wells:

“What turned you into an activist? … What was the aha moment?”

Joe Plummer [not: ‘Joe the Plumber’]

“It’s an issue of refusing to ignore your conscience. And some people seem to have that problem….

When you see something that is so inexcusably illegitimate and wrong, something in you won’t allow you to let it go, so you fight it [what is wrong].

I, like most people, had been raised under the assumption that government was legitimate, that it impeded predatory behavior, and was there to serve our interests. And once I started to realize that it was the most atrocious lie I had ever been told I became initially pretty angry, and then at some point I realized I was only poisoning myself with that anger. So I tried to take a more balanced view of all of it. But at the same time, still, the drive to fight it is just irresistible, because I can’t imagine anything else.

If I were to just try to accept that what we have is all there is going to be and live with it I’d have to kill part of who I am.”

John B.:

“In closing, Joseph, what is your message to the world?”

Joe:

Obey your conscience.”

(video) Key To FULLNESS of JOY! Rick Joyner on ‘It’s Supernatural’: “Wanted, A Friend for God” — Most believers are after their joy, but when you go after God’s joy, what’s going to make Him joyful…!!!

From the written transcript:

RICK JOYNER: … He said, that is the key to eternal joy, because it is the joy of the Lord, not our joy, that is our strength.

SID ROTH: And so the paradigm is all wrong for most believers. Most believers are after their joy and it’s a paradox when you go, if I’m understanding you right, Rick, when you go after God’s joy, what is going to make him joyful, you end up with more joy than if you were going after your joy. Is that what you’re saying?

RICK JOYNER: He says we were created for his pleasure. So I did a study, research, what are the things that bring God joy? And I set my heart to do these things every day. As much as I can, I’m going to, today I’m going to bring the Lord joy. And when I set about to do that, that somehow that was the key.

* * *

So Jesus wants to SHARE HIS JOY WITH US, which will happen by doing what He wants. And HE WANTS OUR JOY TO BE FULL! He says in John 15:9-14:

Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love. IF YOU KEEP my commandments, YOU WILL REMAIN IN MY LOVE; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love. I have spoken these things to you, THAT MY JOY MAY *REMAIN* IN YOU, and THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE MADE FULL.

“This is my commandment, that you LOVE ONE ANOTHER, EVEN AS I HAVE loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends, IF YOU DO WHATEVER I COMMAND YOU.

A bit of my testimony & 4 Ways to Quiet Your Spirit Before God, by Steve Hill — “Instead of getting depressed and complaining, they began to praise God!”

As a senior in high school (St. Croix Lutheran in W. St. Paul, MN) in the ’70s, I realized I couldn’t love people fully enough, and that I needed God’s help to do it. I didn’t know if Christianity was the right religion, because Lutheranism hadn’t done it for me, or from what I could see in those around me. So I decided to research every religion until I found the right one. I started by reading the Bible for myself, starting with the Book of Acts.

When I read this story about Paul and Silas being thrown into prison — being beaten, yet they still worshiped with their whole being, God filling them so fully — I realized they had it.

And I’ve never needed to look anywhere else, but have been frustrated by how sub-biblical Christianity mostly is today.

Anyway, these are highlights of this article, 4 Ways to Quiet Your Spirit Before God, by Steve Hill:

Remember when Paul and Silas were in prison? They were not only chained; they had also been severely beaten. Most likely their prison cell was infested with rats, and diseases were rampant.

I can imagine Paul looking at the burns on his hands from the chains and the cuts all over his body. He and Silas were hurting, and their lives were in jeopardy. But what did they do? Instead of getting depressed and complaining, they began to praise God.

I can just hear them lifting their voices to God in praise in the midst of their desperation, saying, “We worship You, Lord. We worship You, Jesus. Thank You for Your presence. Thank You for Your strength. We love You, Lord.”

It caught the attention of heaven, and God sent an earthquake to deliver them!

[…]

I must use the story of Jesus in the garden during His passion as the example of aligning ourselves to God’s will. …

But something else happened to Jesus in the garden after He prayed. Notice the next verse: “An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him” (v. 43). My friend, this is so powerful. Always remember that after Jesus resigned Himself to God’s will, the angels strengthened Him.

And so it is with you. It’s after you resign yourself to God’s will that the angels will come and strengthen you!

[…]

Here is where so many miss it. They allow their present situation to dictate everything that’s going on around them. Instead, you must learn to relax and say, “This is a season, and it is going to pass. It’s going to bring the peaceable fruit of righteousness. Some good is going to come out of this.”

Isaiah 30:15 tells us why it’s so important to learn how to quiet our spirits: “In quietness and trust is your strength” (NIV). It doesn’t get much clearer than that.

Quieting your spirit will help you navigate through the storms of life no matter what you are going through and no matter what’s happening in the world around you. It’s an art and a spiritual discipline that will change your life and help set the course for your future as it has mine. Why not begin today?
