He Who Believes In Jesus Is Not Condemned; But He Who Does Not Believe Is Already Condemned

18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

What Kind Of People Is The Lord Searching For?

18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.

I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go.

17 Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer,
The Holy One of Israel:
“I am the Lord your God,
Who teaches you to profit,
Who leads you by the way you should go.

Everyone Has Sinned And Fall Short Of The Glory Of God, But We Are Justified Freely By His Grace Thru The Redemption Found Only In Jesus Christ.

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

The Devil Walks Around Roaring Like A Lion Seeking A Person To Devour. Don't Be Afraid. Take A Stand In Faith As The Lord Is With You.

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because[a] your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

Our Salvation Is By Grace And Comes Through Faith And Is A Free Gift From God. You Cannot Earn It Through Good Works.

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Pray For Wisdom And You Will Be Blessed With Heavenly Understanding From The Father

10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Image provided by YouVersion (Bible.com)

I have included the following article because, to me, it is so fitting with Proverbs 9:10.  The article was written by Chaplin Jerrin Lewis and please also check out Brother Jerrin's YouTube videos at AoC Network.

Wisdom and Revelation: A Prayerful Request of Necessity

Ephesians 1:17: "I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better."  We see that Paul wanted the church members in Ephesus to have a desire for wisdom and revelation from God.

As believers, one of our essential desires should be wisdom and revelation from God. In prayer, we are able to ask God for these so that we can know the depth of his ways and also live more effectively.

Wisdom: The application of knowledge.  Yet, how can one apply knowledge that they don't have? That's where revelation comes in.

Revelation: Insight and knowledge that comes from God to you. This is not knowledge from your own understanding. Rather, it comes from the spirit of God in you and gives insight to your mind. This can be knowledge about prophetic events, his word, or even simply a word for you that God has concerning your life.  We are to pray and ask for revelation.

Receiving revelation is not some "spooky" angelic visitation. Rather, it can simply take the form of an idea that comes from God that surpasses your understanding and enlightens your mind about a matter. Therefore, beloved children of God, pray to our Father, for wisdom, but even more so , for revelation. In doing so, his word will open up and the depths of prophetic and spiritual truths within it will unfold, and his spirit will speak to your mind about personal matters so that you may advance in life with utmost effectiveness.

In Christ,

All Scripture Was Inspired By God For Our Good

2 Timothy 3:16-17 New King James Version (NKJV)

16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

If you have read my previous blog post then you know that I am sometimes deeply disturbed by the foolish thing church goers say.  We were at a dinner party one night with a group of so-called believers.  One man, that I had never met before, stated that he is a Bible student and he has found that some scriptures do not fit with what he believes.  He believes that there are too many inconsistencies in the Bible based on what he believes about God.  This man was openly showing his doubt and unbelief and not one person, besides my wife and I, were surprised by his foolish statements.

All scripture is God breathed and is not contradictory as this man thinks.  In my experience there are version of the Bible that can confuse people because some version have translated Hebrews words (Old Testament) and Greek words (New Testament) differently than other translations.  The man mentioned above also commented he was looking for the scriptures to agree with his understanding of God.

Today I heard about a wonderful way to study the Bible online because it gives you the opportunity to gain understanding of certain words by the click of a button.  Check out https://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/2ti/3/16/p0/t_conc_1128016 and for more detailed information click on the G links under the Strong's column.  Click on G2315 for more information on"is given by inspiration of God".

The Word of the Lord Endures Forever

24 because

“All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man[a] as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
25 But the word of the Lord endures forever.”[b]
Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.

Can You LOSE SALVATION? (Once Saved, Always Saved?)

Alert: Please be advised that as you read my articles you may find grammatical errors and poor English as I do not have a college degree and barely made it through high school.  All of my article come from a burden the Holy Spirit has laid upon my heart.  As you read please forgive my lack of education and please feel free to send me a correction message using the contact form on the left side bar of this blog.  If you feel called by God to serve as a volunteer proofreader for this ministry I would love to take to you.

For many years I have had a burden for the lost, but not as much for the unsaved as the saved.  My burden has been for those that go to church and call themselves a Christian.  You may be wondering what has caused this burden and I will do my best try explain.  My burden come from things that Christians have said during Sunday School classes, Small Group settings, and unfortunately from the pulpit.  During my life experience I have had a large number of different employers.  I think the Lord must have put me in all these different situations so that I could be exposed to words of different Christians of various denominations.  In both scenarios I have heard more fear, doubt and unbelief than faith and trust in the Lord.

Our words have a powerful force behind them as they tell us what is really in a person's heart.  Jesus said the following:

Matthew 12:33-35New King James Version (NKJV)

A Tree Known by Its Fruit

33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart[a] brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.
" . . .  Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks . . . "  These powerful words of Jesus give us insight as to whether the church going person is led by the Holy Spirit or is led by an evil spirit.
You can tell those that are filled with the Holy Spirit because they only speak Spirit filled words because they are full the nine different evidences of having the Fruit of the Spirit:
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law."

Unfortunately only a few of the believers I know have a tongue that only speaks words from their heart that is Fruit of the Spirit.  I must confess there has been times that too have spoken negative words of fear, doubt and unbelief.  I know that if you have heard me speak this way I am certain that you think I am a hypocrite and you are right.  I was being a hypocrite.  

Fortunately for me I have asked the Lord to forgive my of my sins and have repented of all of my evil words of negativism.  He is faithful and just and has forgiven me of all the sins that I have willingly committed past and present.

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

What about the church goers that refuse to repent of their fear, doubt, and unbelief.  What will happen to them?

The Just Live by Faith

26 "For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries."
Are there any church goers doomed to hell?  Yes, All Unbelievers whether churched or unchurched - those that have rejected Jesus words and have refused to do what He says:

Revelation 21:8New King James Version (NKJV)

But the cowardly, unbelieving,[a] abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
One final teaching I want to share with you is a YouTube video.  I pray that this video will be a blessing to you and guide you take your Christian service service and take control of what is in your heart.

Can You LOSE SALVATION? (Once Saved, Always Saved?)

AoC Network Published on YouTube Oct 19, 2017

Can Christians lose salvation? Or is it “Once you’re saved, you’re always saved”? Does repeated sinning cause a believer to fall away from GRACE? This is a VERY important topic. Enjoy this cinematic answer! Also, this video examines how Moses is a prophetic parallel or 'type' of Jesus!

To Me This Verse Explains How The Believer Is To Love His Neighbor

2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

I like the way The Message Version Explains this verse:

Nothing but the Cross

6 1-3 Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day’s out. Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law. If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived.
