At His Feet: Hearing

    © 14-22 Colin Melbourne

    Luke 10:38-42 KJV

    Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

    And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

    It’s a small, but significant, domestic scene when Christ visited the home of Martha and Mary at Bethany.

    The Lord wants to speak to us through it now, let’s rest at His feet and hear Him.

    The Promise of Life

      © 21-22 Colin Melbourne

      In Christ Jesus

      Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus, To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

      I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day; Greatly desiring to see thee, being mindful of thy tears, that I may be filled with joy; When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.

      Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.

      For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.

      For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

      Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.

      2 Timothy 1:1-14 KJV

      Jesus Comes: Religion Goes

      When God gets hold of someone they don’t become religious they spring to life: Divine Life, Eternal life, God’s LIFE.

      Secrets of the Kingdom

        © 11-22 Colin Melbourne

        The Kingdom of God Revealed

        Christ’s disciples asked why He taught in parables. Jesus said it was because believers have received a very special gift, one denied to unbelievers; Mtt. 13:11 KJV,

        …it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven…

        The 1984 NIV translates it as;

        The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you…

        This avoids the ambiguities of “mysteries”, a term cults now use as an excuse to teach occult mysticism.

        Why Am I Ill?

          © 19-22 Colin Melbourne

          The Reason You Are Sick

          The first question sincere born again believers ought to ask when they discover symptoms of illness is, Why am I sick?

          Many times you will know the answer instantly, for example; too vigorous exercise.

          Overextending your physical ability will inevitably cause painful symptoms, aches, strains, bruises, meniscal tears, and so on.

          This is particularly common in believers addicted to physical fitness, and goal-setters.

          Or perhaps you neglected to wear proper clothing, and caught a chill, allowing you to begin with flu-like symptoms.

          The cure for both cases is common-sense

          Believers live in Christ Jesus amidst this fallen world, and if we step outside of His leading and will, we put ourselves at risk of disease, and sickness.

          Whose fault is that?

          How To Be Born Again

            © 98-22 Colin Melbourne

            What is it?   Why you need it?   How to be born again

            God’s Word declares in Jn 3:7, Acts 4:12 Holy Bible, KJV;

            Ye must be born again. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved

            What Does It Mean, To Be Born Again?

            To be born again means to receive salvation, and be saved through receiving The LORD Jesus Christ as Saviour. • See Note

            Salvation is God’s will for you, made real on earth. All His abundant blessings are freely available in salvation. It includes everything Jesus Christ died to provide. A new life, peace with God, righteousness, mercy, perfect health, unfailing love, faith, deliverance, power, and joy.

            Expressed simply, it is God’s life in us, Christ in you.

            The New Testament Greek words for salvation are the verb sozo, and the noun soteria, all-inclusive terms meaning; saved, healed, delivered, pardoned, rescued, protected, preserved, made whole, cured, set free, and restored.

            It’s not religion, and is much more than having your sins forgiven.

            NWO AntiChrist Spirit on the Rise

              © 22 Colin Melbourne

              Manufactured Hysteria?

              Q: What do you think of the rumour that the Covid virus was spread deliberately in order to force people to be vaccinated so they can be tracked and controlled by the antiChrist?

              Truth Not Hearsay

              A: First, our Heavenly Father doesn’t lead His children by; rumours, TV, newspapers, and internet articles: The primary way He leads us is directly, through His Spirit anointed Word: The Holy Spirit in a believer’s heart, which always conforms to the New Testament revelation of the Holy Bible, the KJV in English.

              Be careful to distinguish between your mind, and your spirit, so that you follow your spirit, not your thoughts, feelings, and emotions.

              That way you will be able to discern truth from error, and learn by experience how to walk confidently in God’s Spirit.

              Rumours, ideas, and opinions are unreliable guides, especially when filled with fear spread by sinners in the world around you. Fear is the enemy’s tool, and opens the door to doubting God’s words.

              Biblical Use of Tongues

                © 10-22 Colin Melbourne

                When to Use Tongues

                Q: Can I, as a lay member, speak in tongues while in church services, or should I remain silent in that area? Andrea

                A: First, understand the difference between speaking in tongues, and simply using personal tongues in prayer and worship. They are not the same, and are used for completely different purposes.

                Study the links in the Tongues FAQ and ask the LORD to show you.

                Secondly, should you use tongues in services?

                Of course, all the Spiritual Gifts are to be exercised according to the leading of the Holy Spirit, for the edification of His Body.

                Pray, Preach or Teach?

                  © 15-22 Colin Melbourne

                  Lookout False-Teachers

                  Q: The Bible says that those who teach will be judged more strictly, so isn’t it better not to teach others, but simply pray that they will come to know God?

                  A: Excuse me, you are using a broken modern Bible, not the Holy Bible, you can fix that easily with a KJV: Transforms sinners into saints: It opens the eyes of sinners to their guilt before God, and points them to the only way they can be forgiven, set free, saved, and at peace forever.

                  Contemplate this Gospel fact: Our original ancestors, Adam and Eve, would still be righteous, happy, beautiful, and with us today, if only they’d held to the true words of God. But they believed a counterfeit word (Gen. 3:4-5), and brought sin and death upon all their progeny to this day.

                  Catholic and Christian Unity?

                    © 19-22 Colin Melbourne

                    Not on Our Life!

                    Q: What do you make of Pope Francis appealing to Evangelicals and Pentecostals to join the Ecumenical Movement?

                    A: You refer to the alarming Kenneth Copeland convention of 2014, where Anglican Episcoplaian Tony Palmer (since deceased) spoke of meeting Pope Francis informally, and the Pope sent him to the convention with a video message embracing “Charismatic” Catholics, indicating that they were “the future of the Roman Catholic church”, and encouraging unity with evangelical, charismatic, and pentecostal leaders.

                    Is Your Body Redeemed?

                      © 22 Colin Melbourne

                      Q: I heard a preacher comment that because the Bible says the outward man perishes then our bodies are not redeemed. Is that correct?

                      A: Absolutely not!

                      I’m sorry to say that I’ve even heard a leading Spirit-filled full Gospel preacher make the same blunder, (perhaps the preacher you heard) but of course it’s plainly a wrong teaching.

                      Your body is redeemed right now, whether you believe it or not

                      It’s not the kind of error that can be made with the slip of the tongue, inadvertently, so I suspect this dear Brother spoke in genuine ignorance of the truth, rather than deliberately teaching falsehood.

                      None of us has complete knowledge, do we?

                      The Apostle Paul admitted he only knew in part, 1 Cor. 13:9 KJV;

                      For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

                      So let’s be charitable toward preachers and prophets who miss the mark once in a while, because we all do.
