SO YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN

There have been surveys taken asking people if they were Christians. There were many who said no but of the many who said yes there were discrepancies. For example, there were some who felt they were Christians simply because they believed in God. So, is the issue about who believes in God?

 80% of Americans Believe in God. Pew Found Out What They Mean.

In the shifting spiritual landscape of the United States, Christians too can no longer assume that their friends and neighbors believe in the God of the Bible, if they believe in God at all.

Though God regularly gets evoked in prayer, platitudes, and phrases like “God bless America” and “in God we trust,” Americans—even within Christianity—have different conceptions of who God is and how he operates.

A Pew survey released today found that how people view God—and how they believe God interacts with them—shifts by religious affiliation, gender, and political party.

Even in an era where more of the nation doesn’t ascribe to a higher power at all (10%) or believes in some sort of higher power or spiritual force (33%), a slim majority of Americans (56%) still believe in God “as described in the Bible,” according to the Pew report.

According to Pew’s report, only 32 % of white Democrats believe in God as described in the Bible as compared to 72% of white republicans who believe in God as described in the Bible. That is very eye opening assuming the accuracy of the pole!

Understand that there is no mention of the Holy Spirit and without the Spirit nothing is understood or known.

John 14:26  But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

God’s pole is more accurate, believe God! Man’s pole talks about God but leaves out Christ when talking about Christians. They don’t understand the spiritual and that Jesus Christ is God.

Colossians 3:1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

 Jesus and the Holy Spirit actually dwell in Christians waiting the time they will also be joined to the Father! Therefore, two members of the Trinity dwell in the incorruptible inner man.

Romans 8:9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin.

Jesus is everything to a Christian! We must surrender our lives to Him and follow Him!

John 15: He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

If you are not a Christian and want to be then confess that you are a sinner and that Jesus is the Son of God and surrender your life to Him right now in prayer and you will be saved!

Dear heavenly Father, Please reach into the hearts of those who will read this blog and convict them into believing in Jesus as their Savior, in Jesus name, amen!

HOW DO YOU KNOW THERE IS ETERNAL LIFE?

 

ETERNAL LIFE MEANS ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED OR THERE WOULD BE NO ETERNAL LIFE!

There are those who teach that a believer could fall from grace and lose his salvation and they search for different translations, commentaries to find verses that say what they want it to say rather than what God ordained it to say. There is nothing wrong with using these various materials for research of God’s Truth but all too often it is manipulated. It is the Holy Spirits job to give us understanding of what Jesus teaches and to reveal the Truth. Millennialism has a real problem accepting the old ancient ways of the Bible.

UNDERSTAND THAT ETERNAL LIFE IS NOT ETERNAL LIFE IF IT IS NOT ETERNAL LIFE!

 John 10:28 And I give them eternal life; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.

1 John 2:25 And this is the promise that He has promised us — eternal life.

Eternal life is a gift Jesus gives when one receives Jesus into their heart (Romans 6:23 The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.) an confesses that he is a sinner.

1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Romans 10:9-13 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”

To those who are trying so hard to sound so intellectual and theological to the point they actually say and believe that no one can understand the Bible unless someone like themselves explains it to them. However, the Bible tells plainly what God has to say about why He uses preachers.

1 Corinthians 1:18-21 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.  For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

The Bible always explains itself and reveals to our hearts what God wants us to know.

Hebrews 10:16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”

Dear heavenly Father write upon the fleshly table of our hearts Your spiritual truths and revelations as You promised You would thousands of years ago and even now in the new covenant according to Your own Word write your truth in our hearts and minds revealing Your glory to us individually. In Jesus name, amen!

GOD DECIDES WHO LEADS

God will decide who our leaders will be!

Colossians 1:16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.

God will deliver us from those who are our political enemies if we believe in Him.

2 Kings 17:39 But the LORD your God you shall fear; and He will deliver you from the hand of all your enemies.”

Wake up!

God will provide the right person to lead this nation. Now is a time to believe God can do what He says He can do.

PRAY! Look to Him!

God is still on His throne!

God Bless The United States Of America!

HIS SPIRIT IN THE INNER MAN

Study to show thyself approved unto God

This is an intense bible study and will require prayer and much study to understand all of the spiritual content. Most church people I ask about the covenants don’t really know much about them and how important they are to our spiritual lives and the impact it has on Christian teachings especially the Lords Supper where it was all changed by Jesus on that fateful night of the last Passover.

Ephesians 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,

Wow! What a statement! His Spirit is in my inner man, in me? What does this mean? Am I two people? What is God saying?
This brings up the reminder that we must understand the two covenants. This is the least understood subject in the Church today and it is imperative that we take a brief study of the covenants to learn how the change came about.

About the Covenants

Hebrews 9:8 the Holy Spirit indicating this, that the way into the Holiest of All was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle (A shadow of our corruptible body) was still standing.

11 But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands (The inner man, 1 Cor.12:27), that is, not of this creation.

15 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant (Forgiveness of our sins), that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

Hebrews 10:9 then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second.

We are not under the Law of Moses, not even the Ten Commandments! We are under the Spiritual Laws of Jesus Christ as enlarged upon in the Sermon on the Mount. Under the Old Law you literally had to commit the offense to be guilty, but under the Laws of Christ if you harbor the offense in the heart you are guilty.

10 By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

15 But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before,

16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”

The Spiritual laws of Jesus Christ as referenced in the Sermon on the Mount.

17 then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

Jesus shed His blood for the remission of all sins, past, present, and future. Jesus took all sins to the grave and buried them there forever.

18 Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

 This is where the covenants changed from the Levitical priesthood of the tribe of Levi to the Judean priesthood of the tribe of Judah with Christ as the High Priest.

Hebrews 7:11 Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be called according to the order of Aaron?

12 For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law.

13 For He of whom these things are spoken belongs to another tribe, from which no man has officiated at the altar.

14 For it is evident that our Lord arose from Judah, of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood.

15 And it is yet far more evident if, in the likeness of Melchizedek, there arises another priest

16 who has come, not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to the power of an endless life.

17 For He testifies: ” You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek.”

Jesus who is our high priest today rebuilds us into a holy spiritual body.

Once we have received Christ into our lives and have eternal life, we have entered into the body of Christ. There was never anything like this ever mentioned by Moses in the Law. They would think it blasphemous to say we have a holy body like God. That’s why it is necessary to know about the two covenants. Now we can return to learning how we are spiritual

1 Corinthians12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.

1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

It is staggering to learn that we are of such importance to God that He would make us Holy as He is holy. The Apostle Paul says he labors in birth until Christ is formed in us. (Gal.4:19) The Apostle Peter said that we are living stones used to build a spiritual house and holy priesthood. (1Peter 2:5) The Apostle Paul tells us to accept to being conformed to the new body the perfect man formed in us by God.

Ephesians 1:24 and that you put on the new man(The inner man) which was created according to God,

We are a spiritual construction job built on an everlasting foundation powerfully anchored by Christ and built of perfect building blocks of eternal strength fitted together to form a Spiritual structure for the holy habitation of our God and Father. We are the building blocks and Christ is the builder and we will be the dwelling of the Holy Spirit forever and ever. In the Kingdom of God there is no temple, for God and the Lamb are the temple and we are the body of the Lamb. (Rev. 21:22)

Ephesians 2:19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,

20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,

21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,

22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

I pray that god blesses the understanding of those who read this bible study as it may be the most important study to have in these times. Amen!

PROPAGATE?

God created the woman from part of the man. He didn’t create a man
from a man or a woman from a woman. God had created the man and woman to marry and by propagation to create children so that the family of man would increase giving God more children for His kingdom. For this reason God especially gets tremendously upset when men pervert this process.
Be warned!
2 Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the polutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
Don’t change to the ways man, change man to the ways of God!
John 1:4 Jesus is the light in men… for believers, all others are in darkness.
Are you in the light of the truth or in darkness?

ARE YOU BUILDING ON YOUR FOUNDATION?

Tree being wateredOnce we were non believers and didn’t know much, if anything, about Christianity. But somehow we were introduced to Jesus Christ by His grace and our lives changed. We now had something that we didn’t have before. FAITH! By faith we began to recognize that there was so much more to learn and do. We began to grow spiritually. But for something to grow, it has to have something to grow from. A tree grows from a seed planted in the soil and begins to grow roots and then a trunk that that becomes its foundation. A seed, the Holy Spirit, is planted in us and we began to develop spiritual roots in the Church and Jesus is our trunk (foundation).

John 15: 1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

Now we have a foundation to build on as long as we are in these bodies. As we bear fruit our building is being built and Jesus is the chief cornerstone on which we build.

1 Corinthians 3: 10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 28:16  Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: ” Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.

Now that your foundation is layed and your temple is being built, your are host to the Holy Spirit. What an awesome responsibility! Now you are totally of God and belong to God.

1 Corinthians 6:19  Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

1 Peter 2:5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Sometimes it is good to remember just who and what we are. The world does not know this nor can it understand without the Holy Spirit. However, we do know on what we are building and what we stand.

Proverbs 10:25  But the righteous has an everlasting foundation

Never stop building! Praise the Lord!
