How do we obey God? It’s hard!

This is such a hard issue to tackle because so many people are in different situations. Obeying God is challenging and tough. Before we became a Christian, if we’re honest, we thought that it is literally all about us. This is shown in young children, teenagers, and adulthood as well. When we read God’s Word, we begin to realize that it isn’t about us after all. We come to a knowledge that it never has been about us and never will be about us. It’s about God and what He wants in our lives. The word is like a knife sharpener and we’re the knife — often times it’s challenging to accept God’s Word in its fullness, we are batted around and may go through some trials, but we come out sharper and more dangerous to the enemy in the end.

 

Who can really obey all of God’s old laws and the news ones? That’s crazy!

 

You’re right, it is crazy because we don’t have to obey the old laws. When we say that we need to come into obedience to God’s Laws, we shouldn’t mean the old ones. It’s the new laws that we need to be submissive to. I suggest reading More >

Man-made Doctrines Are No Good

Have you ever noticed how doctrines of man usually replace the doctrines of God? In today’s society, many times we will replace God’s Word with mans traditions. We see this a lot of the time in modern churches (e.g, mega-churches). We, as Christians, have allowed the enemy to come within the walls of the church and confuse it’s believers into believing so many vein and disgusting doctrines that aren’t even mentioned in the Bible. Dear friends, we have taken mans word above the very Word of God! Does this not bother us? Do we remain in a fallen and divided state to where we’re comparable to a fallen leaf — which is blown in every direction? Do we really stoop so low as to take sides on arguments? Jesus did not want division among the children of God; He wanted unity.

 

Be of the same mind

Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God. (Romans 15:5-7)

Saved by Grace? Once saved always saved? Grace is explained

Hello there,

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. But today I’d love to talk with you all about an important subject that needs to be addressed. In today’s society, culture, and modern churches we have completely watered down the Word of God. We have taken God’s Word and twisted it to make our own doctrines. It is apparent and clear that in today’s culture that the modern church has backslid from the truth of God’s Holy Word. I would like to take the time to shed some light on this important subject.

We’re saved by grace! Often modern church goers will tell me this. They will use this as an excuse for sin. It is apparent and scriptural that we’re saved by God’s Grace. We are fallible humans who have went against God’s Law. We have transgressed His Holy Word. With this being said, we do deserve death. Romans 3:23 states in the King James Version of the Bible, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”. This means all of us have sinned against God. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, More >

What God expects of us – living by His example

Dearly beloved friends,

I am positive that almost all of us has asked this question to ourselves or to other elders of different churches, “What does God really expect of me? How can I please Him?” The answer is in the examples that Jesus has given us. Tonight, I would like to show you these examples – all of these examples by providing Scriptural reference. For the sake of scripture to be understood, I will be using the New International Version of the Bible.

Forgiveness

Jesus wants us to forgive all people – no matter what they’ve done to us. Jesus didn’t say this to give us a chore, but for our very own benefit. That way, we not only get the worry and the “bolder” off of our hearts, we also get forgiveness from God. Jesus said, “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” (Matthew 6:14-15) John 8:1-11 explains how Jesus reacted towards a woman who sinned against His own Father:

1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

How do I become saved?

Dear friends,

In this world we live in, sin abounds everywhere. It’s only going to get worse as time goes on. As society progresses, new sins are brought out to the open and are made possible. They’re becoming easier and easier to do. Whether it’s homosexuality, adultery, or even fornication; sin is everywhere in this world. Even in the churches today, sin abounds and is glorified. If this isn’t enough, we’ve corrupted the way of salvation. With this in mind, how do we become saved? Let’s see what the Holy Word of God tells us. I will be using the King James Version for this article.

And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him. Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee; And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim: That More >
