When You Teach the Truth About Jesus, The World Will Hate You
~ Teaching the truth about Jesus and forgiveness will get you thrown out of churches today. Why? Because Jesus told us, “if they hate you it is because they hated me first.” By in-large, most people will not accept the things of God. Why? Because they love themselves more than they love God. They would rather listen to the teaching of men than listen to the teaching of the Holy Spirit. They love things of the world more than they love God. They love the praises of men, more than they love God. They love their education of the world, more than they love God. They refuse to come to the Spirit of Truth for truth, for All truth, and instead rely on their own understanding of things to make the determination of whether they are even saved or not. Satan doesn’t want a person to go to the word of God and have the Holy Spirit show a person all truth. Satan wants to maintain the deception and the people are only too happy to comply because they … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Make Your Body Available to Jesus For Service to Him
~ In view of God’s mercy and love for us, we ought to love one another as he has loved us. How do we do that? By abiding in the Vine. For He is the vine and we are the branches. He wants us to simply be available to be used by Him. That is our proper worship and our daily sacrifice to Him. When a child of God is abiding in Him, the Holy Spirit will instruct us to do and say what the Spirit of God wants us to do and say. God is the one that will provide the fruit of the Spirit. We can’t do any of it ourselves, but only He can do all of it. Yet so many times, we forget the truth of the word of God in this area of our lives, and we try and go out grunting and groaning for God himself. We stop resting in Him and instead focus on what we think we ought to do, based on the energy of our flesh. We forget that He is the … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

You Come to Christ Jesus Because Your Sins Are Already Forgiven at The Cross
~ One of the biggest lies and misunderstandings of the gospel that is taught today, is the lie, that you come to Christ Jesus to get your sins forgiven. Satan has convinced the world that you come to Jesus, and then he forgives you your sins when you ask for it, or faith it. Another way of saying it, is most people don’t believe that Jesus died for everyone’s sins, only those that place faith in Jesus. So called grace teachers will teach this one point of Calvinism very subtlety. They won’t say that Jesus had limited atonement but they will indirectly say there is limited propitiation of sins only for the elect. One well known teacher will even go so far as to say “that anyone that teaches that Jesus forgave everyone’s sins at the cross is a charlatan.” They will not even tell a lost person their sins are forgiven, because in their mind they don’t know if that person will ever have faith or not to believe their sins are forgiven, thus they don’t … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Jesus at the Cross, Died for Us Then, So He Could Live in Us Now!
~ Behold the Lamb of God who took (past tense) away the sins of the world. Yes, Jesus took them away. That happened at the cross one time for ALL. We are on this side of the cross (after the cross) not the other side of the cross (before the cross) where John the Baptist declared, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” Now, living after the cross we should be shouting from the rooftops, “Look, the Lamb of God, who TOOK AWAY the sin of the world!” Do you believe this? Or do you think more forgiveness is required by God? Is Jesus ever going to die again for the sins of the whole world? Of course He isn’t. So if He isn’t going to die again on the cross, then why are people asking Him to do what He has already done? It’s because people don’t really have faith. For if they really had faith they would be thanking God for what He has already done. They are … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Jesus Forgave You Before You Were Even Born! Do You Believe That?
~ We are told in Scripture that Jesus reconciled us to himself and is no longer counting our sins against us. Most people do not believe that. Even so called “Christians” don’t believe that either. Those that fight this and do not hear the Holy Spirit talking to them, maybe the reason is because they are not really a child of God and are not truly born again of the Spirit of God in the first place. We are also told in the Scriptures that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. Yet people discount that verse of Scripture too, and say “yeah but.” It never ends with these people. They hardly hear with their ears and thus if they would, they would repent (a total turn) and would be saved. Jesus took upon himself the sins of the whole world at the cross, for all time, for ALL sins, backwards to Adam and forwards to eternity, and said it is Finished! Jesus is not returning to deal with sins ever again. He did it once and … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
