Endure till the End Part 3

THE PATH OF APOSTASY Hebrews 4:14-16 (NIV) Since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that…

Endure till the End Part 2

WHAT IS APOSTASY Nothing can separate us from God’s love (Rom. 8:38-39). Nothing can pluck us out of God’s hand (John 10:27-29). God will never cast us away (John 6:37). God opened a door no one can shut (Revelation 3:8). 1 Timothy 4:1 (DARBY) The Spirit speaks expressly, that in latter times some shall apostatise from the faith, giving their mind to deceiving spirits and teachings of demons. Apostasy is . . . willful rejection of Christ . . .…

Endure till the End Part 1

OUR POSITION IN CHRIST Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV) For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. Romans 9:15-16 (LDB) God told Moses, “I will be merciful to whomever I wish. If I wish to show kindness to someone, I will. This shows that it was not we who had intense desire and put forth great effort to be saved,…

Remembered Forever

REMEMBERED FOREVER Psalm 112:6 (HCSB) The righteous man will be remembered forever. Jesus Christ will be remembered forever. We celebrate His birth every Christmas Season. Why? His selflessness. What will you be remembered for? In Heaven? On Earth? Ephesians 4:1 (NIV) I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Sadly, Satan has people running after the wrong things. WHAT MOTIVATES ME Physical needs. (food, water, shelter, etc.) Safety needs. (lock doors, stay in jobs,…

Faith, Vision & Sacrifice

FAITH, VISION & SACRIFICE 2 Peter 1:3-4 (NIV) His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature. Faith comes through your knowledge of God’s promises. Romans 10:17 (NIV) Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.…

Winning Christ

WINNING CHRIST Philippians 3:7-9 (VOICE) I now realize that all I gained and thought was important was nothing but yesterday’s garbage compared to knowing the Anointed Jesus my Lord. For Him I have thrown everything aside—it’s nothing but a pile of waste—so that I may gain [win] Him [Christ]. We’re so used to God winning us, are we trying to win God? Proverbs 8:17-19 (VOICE) I love those who love me; those who search hard for me will find me.…

Truth Over Trend Part 3

THE BIBLE’S PLOT – MIRROR IMAGE Genesis 1-2 – Creation! God and man in Paradise. Mankind enjoyed the presence of God. We experience only good (no pain, sorrow, suffering). The closest English word we have for the Greek and Hebrew word “paradise” is resort. Genesis 3-5 – Satan and sin enter. Sin separates. That’s why Adam hid from God. Romans 6:23 (NIV) The wages of sin is death [separation], but the gift of God is eternal life [union] in Christ…
