So many people call in with questions they want answers to. Some wonder how we are meant to live the Christian life. Others wonder about end time events, like what has happened to Damasus. And in our world today, the end of the age certainly seems to be speedily coming toward the end. Time seems so short, like the rapture could occur within ten years. There are so many signs we see today, like Damascus being a heap of ruins, as prophesied by Isaiah.
But as curious as many people are toward end time events, the nagging questions people have about the meaning and purpose of life are still the same. It seems error seems to spread like wildfire and can never be quenched from being spread to the naive and those lacking discernment. The same errors are being propagated from generation to generation, from denominational persuasions of men and from the world. You still keep hearing the same questions. Is tithing for today? Why do pastors teach tithing? What is this strange teaching I hear about healing in the atonement? How can anyone find out what is true?

A common question asked by many believers is what about this flesh of mine? I do not understand what I do. Another common question is why are there so many denominations out there, and they all seem to have their own and different interpretation on different things of scripture? Why is that, if the Holy Spirit leads you into all truth? And, if the Holy Spirit gives you truth on something, how are you going to know?
First of all, when you are born again, you now have the Holy Spirit living in you. You have the mind of Christ living in you to explain spiritual truth. A person born into this world is not born with the Holy Spirit of God in him. He was born of mom and dad, with a human spirit alive to this world, but dead to God. He must be born again. Until then, he cannot discern the things of God, for they are spiritually discerned, requiring the Spirit of God, alive, living in you, to teach you.
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P44 (07-28-20)
Do we, you and I, really grasp God’s love for us? That is what God’s power is for, to know the depth, height, width, and breadth of this love God has for us. When we face trials and tribulations, and we will, do we doubt that God loves us? That is where this truth that God has stored in our hearts comes alive in faith. When we know that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus, then those trials and tribulations are seen as but light and momentary, forming in us attitudes of heart far greater that can never be taken from us. See, we come to the depths of understanding that Christ really is our life.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P43 (07-27-20)
There are so many times that we hear, or have said things ourselves, that are just not true. Whether we are a new believer, not having spent enough time in the word, or are not getting in the word, to get to know the Agape love of God, we have not fully grasped what we already have in Him. We do not know He is there. We might know in our head, can quote scriptures from memory, but we do not know what that means, for what is in our head has not gone down into our heart. So there is a maturing process that God works out in us to know that which He has freely given us. But we have this promise, that God will complete that which He began in us.
First there is natural birth, and we are born in Adam, dead spiritually. Even Adam was created out of the dust, created dead, until God breathed in him the breath of life. That same breath, the Holy Spirit of God, must be put back into man, everyone born in Adam, in order … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

You can hear people say today that everyone is a child of God or that there are many roads to God. Is that true? No. There is only one way to Jesus, and he tells us what gives someone the right to become a child of God.
John 1:11-13 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
When people say such things, it shows that they do not understand who Jesus is and what he came to do. Until a person has the Spirit of God living in him, which is what it means to be a child of God, a new spiritual creation. Recall the conversation Jesus had with Nicodemus, who asked him what is required to enter heaven. Jesus replied, “Unless a man is born again, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.“
