One of the greatest statements in the Bible is, Heb. 9:22 KJV:
…without shedding blood there is no remission (of sin).
God says, Lev. 17:11 KJV;
for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
Jesus said, Mtt. 26:28 KJV;
For this is my blood… which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
In the beginning, God created people without sin. But Satan came and tempted them, and they yielded. Read More
Q: Can I lose my salvation
A: This is the oldest chestnut of all, and the most tiresome. When you find yourself fussing over this topic, it’s a sure sign you’re wandering away from your primary purpose on Earth.
Preachers are asked this question frequently, and whatever we reply, it causes controversy. That is why you must read this whole page to get a proper scriptural understanding, and ask the Lord to show you what it means.
Personally, I like this preacher’s answer; when asked if a believer can lose their salvation, he responded with a deep sigh in exasperation,
God doesn’t even think like that! Read More
Q: The world is in turmoil over the spread of Coronavirus Covid-19, financial and stock markets are unusually volatile, major sports events have been cancelled, national economies are broken, and panic is in the air: Surely these are signs of the Last Days before Jesus comes. What do you think?
God’s Antidote to Social Conditioning
A: I believe what God has written for us in The Holy Bible, where He teaches that the Last Days began two thousand years ago when the Jews rejected and crucified their Messiah.
Everyone who has lived on Earth since then has been living in the Last Days, which were prophesied by the Jewish Patriarch, Jacob, on his death-bed, Gen. 49:1-2 KJV;
And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days. Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.
Jacob then blessed each of his children prophesying what would become of them, and their progeny, notably appointing Judah and Joseph to bring forth Israel’s Messiah. Read More
Look! They’re falling over!
Q: Why do people sometimes ‘pass out’ when they are being prayed for? Jess
A: They don’t pass-out, or faint. It is not a state of unconsciousness, or anything to do with hypnosis. The Holy Spirit overcomes them, and they go into trance-like state; the Christian jargon for it is, being ‘slain in the Spirit’, or ‘falling under the power‘. Read More
Your adversaries are not flesh and blood, they are spiritual, invisible, and utterly defeated. Your victory is manifested by faith in the LORD Jesus Christ, who is your only strength.
You Are Strong, So Be Strong
I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
1 Jn. 2:14b; Eph. 6:10 Holy Bible, KJV
God tells believers (both men and women) that they have defeated Satan, overcome him, and that the Devil has no power over them whatsoever. Read More
Your Election Victory!
Because of His grace, believers have been elected of God, to glorify His Name in this generation, by obedience to His Living Word: The LORD Jesus Christ. 1 Pe. 1:1-5 KJV;
Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
Col. 3:12-14 KJV;< Read More
Q: Is Corona virus a punishment from God, like the plagues of Egypt in the Bible?
A: I suspect the legalists will seize the opportunity to draw that conclusion, but not exactly; it is another of the self-inflicted judgments, and curses, Adam’s progeny have brought on themselves, by persistent rebellion against The Truth.
In the same way that the emergence of HIV Aids, in the 1980’s, was emphasised by the legalist bandwagon to be; “God’s judgment on perverts and the sexually immoral”. Read More
Modern Bible versions use the word “Atonement” in place of the KJV’s “Propitiation”. The terms are synonymous and signify; the expiation of sin, thus being made favourable, accepted, in the eyes of Almighty God. This is more than the cancelling of a sin debt. The guilt is not simply cancelled, but paid for, and suffered, in full. Here’s an example of how the word propitiation is used in the Holy Bible Ro. 3:21-25a KJV;
But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets.
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood.
Part 1 of 3
It’s precious to be in a trial, to be under pressure from all sides, and see no way out. Are you so crushed by circumstances that your situation seems hopeless, and utterly helpless?
Now that is a divine place to be! It is where you will learn a treasured lesson. You will experience the Hand of the Potter forming the clay, and arise more like the LORD Jesus Christ.
This is what we crave; we become less, and He becomes greater, in us. Our desires are His, His power is ours, His will is done on Earth, as it is in Heaven.
That’s God’s plan for your life. He will not be satisfied until He has Christ perfectly manifested in your flesh.
