How is it possible to be a Christian, to see what the early church in Acts was like and yet be powerless in the year 2016?
Most believers are content to go have a “soul lifting,” feel good worship service and then go back to their routine the rest of the week and then… go back and do the same thing over again, week after week after week.
They never see lives changed or the Bible alive in their life or the lives of those they pray for. They have repented of their sins, accepted Jesus Christ and some have even been baptized, but what is lacking, that they don’t seem to DO the works that Jesus said we would do “and greater?”
Jesus was recorded saying it in the Gospels…
John 14:12 12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
Mark 16:18 “they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Yeah, yeah… Jesus is coming back soon. What does that mean? My friend and band mate from Mustard Seed Faith use to say that when we saw something that people were oblivious too or just didn’t care about anymore.
It basically meant, “who cares,” let’s just pretend like we never saw it and move on with our lives.
That’s what most people are doing and many Christians are too, but that day will be here and then no one will say, “Pass the ketchup.”
That doesn’t fit the opinions and humanistic views and individual view of the majority of people in this confused world.
The more acceptable view is the one that most prefer. It’s the one they’ve heard somewhere, from someone, at some time.
And these are the SAME people that will ask, “Doesn’t the Bible say…”
Because their knowledge of the Bible has been learned from “hearsay” and outright imaginations of the religious. Not from the Bible (God’s Word)
“So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know (you are blind) that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.… Revelation 3:16-18 (more…)
WRONG! Fox is still “media” and what they’ll be showing in programming will make many of the hosts on their other shows cringe with amazement!
What could be so bad? After all, they’re the “good guys” in a sea of liberal pagans and unbelieving chaos, right? Think again… (more…)
It was the greatest “cover up” in the history of mankind, b/c it could have affected every man who has or will ever live!
Can we ever be perfect like Him? You may be surprised.
But, it’s much more than what we appear to be to others in the world. It’s a relationship with God that has no substitutes.
Maybe you need it. Maybe it’s time for you to get “real” with your relationship with Jesus.
If you don’t know Him like you think you do, you may be offended with this podcast.
Hey, if you don’t know Jesus “personally” or what Christmas is REALLY ALL ABOUT, please listen to this last podcast of 2014!
And… Merry Christmas!
Understand God. Know His love for you! Know His will for you. Know His Word and you will know all of that!
It’s also the way He has called us to walk too…
I’ll tell you why in this podcast. I don’t have to win your vote or popularity contest. If you want to challenge this teaching, go to the Bible and prove me wrong.
Please show me the scriptures that back up the wrong teaching that you may have sat under all your Christian life!
You won’t find any that support the “tithe” as being for the church of Jesus Christ!
Here is the very personal testimony of Erik Dattwyler. Listen to his very real and transparent testimony from a man who lived all his life without Christ… Until that day came. And the thought about where he was, in an empty and unfulfilled existence. (more…)
Well, it can be if you decide His way is NOT enough or doesn’t apply to the seriousness of “today’s” circumstances.
This podcast explores what He said and if you decide to disagree with me, that’s OK.
Now, I know that what I’m going to say here will be very controversial. It will have many Christians fired up and angry with me. Maybe you’ll think I’m just too fanatical. (more…)
Even sincere pastors who don’t know the Word of God probably taught you wrong too. Why, because it’s a “doctrine.”
Every “denomination” has their own “doctrines” that they expect to be followed. They won’t allow the Bible to get in the way of what they believe and teach.
I won’t allow the “worlds mindset” or even the “so-called” church to get in the way of what the Word says about anything!
Are you often asked if you are a Christian or are you NEVER asked?
Let him who has ears to hear, listen to what the Spirit of God is saying to the church.
The Book of Revelation is a “foretelling” of events soon to come on the whole earth, but before that series of events was foretold to the Apostle John, Jesus had several messages He communicated to the churches and the church overall.
In Part 2 of “Are You Willing To Hear,” we see what Jesus message was for us and the message to the churches.
This recent story about the satanists asking Oklahoma for permission to put their statue up may sicken you like it does me!
It may seem absurd – or given the moral state of the nation, appropriate — but the grounds committee for the Oklahoma State Capitol, the Preservation Commission, has been asked by The Satanic Temple, a group from New York, to place a privately funded statue of Satan, complete with pentagram and two fawning children at Lucifer’s knee, on the Capitol grounds near a monument of the Ten Commandments.
