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.”
I’m really not astounded in the increase of “false teachings and false doctrines,” but I am nonetheless tired of it!
I’m tired of those who claim the name of Jesus and yet have tried to “ignore and redefine” the Word of God by accepting false teachings.
I’m even tired of those who claim they walk in faith and yet have more faith in doctors than they do in Jesus Christ for their healing needs.
I’m tired, tired, tired of everything that deviates from the truth in Christ!
I’m not weary in well doing though. Otherwise, I’d just sit down and throw ashes on my head.
For those of us who believe every single Word God has spoken, there is ONLY great blessings to walk in now and in the future!
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.”
Can we ever be perfect like Him? You may be surprised.
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!
It’s also the way He has called us to walk too…
There are TOO many false teachings about “Pre-Destination” and that has really confused and frustrated people that see that as a reason that we don’t need to share the Gospel, because some are just meant for “hell” anyway.
That teaching and doctrine is just as damnable as teaching that all people will go to heaven in the end anyway! Another lie of the enemy. And he has plenty if you don’t know the truth!
In this podcast, I’ll lay out the scriptures that will prove to you that predestination and the doctrine of it, have been mis-taught completely!
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.
Are you often asked if you are a Christian or are you NEVER asked?
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. (more…)
We have more TV preachers and pastors of large churches talking about the age of Grace we live in, but I hear a lot of people twisting the message too.
Just like Solomon said in Ecclesiastes, “There’s nothing new under the sun.” (“That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun.” Ecc 1:9)
And just like the early church experienced the “ungodly mixed in with the “godly,” we have the same thing in these “last of the last days” church as well.
Many people have deceived themselves in thinking what the Grace of God is for… Jude felt it so necessary to warn the saints in the early church, that he changed his letter to remind them what God’s Grace is really for.
This was the man that God wanted all along to replace Judas, he just didn’t know it yet… until that day!
His conversion occurred on the road to Damascus, but his life and call took him to the entire world!
When you take a man with zeal and commitment and direct him in the right direction, the results are amazing!
There are two things that you may have forgotten, but you need them to walk in the victory, joy and fruitfulness of Jesus Christ.
I hear “Grace” will do it all for you, but that’s not what Jesus said. His Grace is helping us move to that place, but these things you must NOT leave out…
So many Christians fall way short of the life Jesus intended for them.
In this podcast, you’ll discover what He meant when He said, I came that you might have life and that kind of life… MORE abundant!”
I covered this topic in a past podcast, but it looks like once is NOT enough. There are still too many beleievers who are stymied about who they are.
Are they a sinner saved by grace or are you who God says you are? Can you be a sinner and a saint?
Can a dog be a cat too?
The effect it can have on the hearers depends on the topic, but it will always have a negative effect on the hearer, IF they do not know the what the truth is when they hear a “false teaching.”
Where did it go? Another year closer to the return of Jesus Christ to take His Church.
Another year closer for someones salvation, deliverance and eternal destiny with Jesus!
And a new year filled with much uncertainty for a world without hope…
But what about you as a believer? Are you deceived again too? Not like the world, but like one that hears only…
