Taking an evergreen tree, putting it in your house, decorating it with lights, sitting in the dark, and adoring it to Christmas carols is spiritual adultery. You profess to love Jesus, but you do so with the mementos and techniques of other lovers – the world and pagan religion. You are not content with Christ's pure gospel – for it has no Mass of Christ. You have added the world's seductions to keep you happy in your marriage to Christ. He is highly offended at your whorish ways.
There are many Bible reasons not to celebrate Christmas for those who esteem God's precepts concerning all things to be right and that hate every false way (Ps 119:128). The God of heaven has specified exactly how He wants to be worshipped. He does not accept inventions or modifications. And He seeks those who will worship Him in spirit and truth (John 4:23-24). You are living in the perilous times of the last days - a time of great compromise by so-called Christians (II Tim 3:1 - 4:5 ). Where do you stand?
Gospel of John (91)
John 10 opens with a parable (10:6). Parables are interpreted for their contextual lesson, not for their details. The details can be dangerous, if each phrase is considered independent and given a meaning. Look for the general lesson. Like the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:29,36).
Gospel of John (92)
A shepherd owns sheep and depends on their prosperity for his profit. Hirelings were day laborers only interested in their wages. Jesus is the Good Shepherd and laid down His life for His sheep from the Father. He will not lose even one, for their union with Him is inviolate.
Holy Scripture Theatre
A very intense reading of selected scriptures with dramatic background music. Crank your speakers up and enjoy. :)
Revelation 3:20 is the most abused verse in the Bible. Jesus does not look like an effeminate, she-man hippie. Jesus does not beg at the hearts of sinners. His appear- ance is very different (Rev 1:12-18; 19:11-16); He opens the hearts of sinners by His great power (Acts 16:14; Rev 3:7). and Revelation 3:20 is for believing saints only! Get this verse right today, and never let anyone deceive you with it again!
Alexander the Great
Amazing Fulfillment of Bible Prophecy! Crank up your speakers and rejoice in the God of Heaven. Is there any other God who can foretell the future like our God?
The Bible provided many details about the worlds greatest military general hundreds of years before he was born! Watch this presentation and learn about these exciting prophecies from the book of Daniel.
Stop fretting about political circumstances; our King of kings is greater than "the great". The Lord God omnipotent reigneth!
"Once saved, always saved" is a popular mantra of easy-believism that turns God's grace into lasciviousness by promising eternal life to those with ungodly lives. It has no Biblical basis as it is commonly used.
The God of heaven will not lose a single one of His elect, but the concept of "once saved, always saved," based on decisional regeneration that obligates God rather than God's work of grace leading to godly evidence, is wrong in both phrases.
These questions provoked us in the past to seek God's answers, and we hope they will do the same for you.
If your pastor loves and preaches the truth, we love him and pray for him.
Did Peter save Cornelius? By preaching? Or by baptism? Or did God save Cornelius by free grace in Jesus Christ, and Peter only told him about it?
The record of Cornelius in Acts 10 is an inspired account of the first official Gentile conversion. Most today think that eternal life hinges on a decision made for Jesus during the repeated singing of "Just As I Am." But Peter did not give an invitation, and they did not sing a funeral dirge played on an organ. Cornelius was accepted with God and born again long before meeting Peter. Read about it, and get the Bible order of salvation established in your mind.
Jesus Christ is Lord! There is no single greater evidence or proof of the divine origin of Christianity, the great glory and power of the Lord Jesus Christ as King of the kingdom of God, and the accuracy and reliability of the Bible than the prophecies and their fulfillments regarding the destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman armies under Titus in 70 AD.
How are you saved? Did God save you by free grace? Or did you save yourself by some act? Or did you do something to cooperate with God and make Jesus Christ's work effective for you? There are only two ways a sinner can be saved. Either God saves him unconditionally as a free gift of His grace, or he must do something in order to obtain it for himself. There is no other choice. All religions and doctrines are either unconditional or conditional. Either man does nothing for his salvation, or he must do something.
