Barack Obama, Babylon, and the return of the Caliphate.
Posted March 10, 2015
If you watched Obama and Clinton support the "Arab Spring", it is clear they have a pro-Islamist agenda and have supported, knowingly or not, the rise of the Islamic State and a now global Caliphate. (which was a principle goal of Osama Bin Laden).
Obama's Gay agenda in addition to his profligate spending and totalitarian goals (which are demonstrated in Obama Care) are among many signs that he is an antichrist and a puppet of Satan. America is now under the wrath of God and has been given over to her sins and a depraved mind. more...
Disciples of Jesus Website renovation
Posted March 6, 2015
I have not been working on this site for a while as I have been busy with the brick and mortar ministry of His Place in Danville Illinios. However, today I tried to log into the WordPress based site and it was broken, probably an update malfunction. I have had it with my WordPress experiment and will go back to the old school methods. Since I have to recreate things and in view to changes in the Church and the World, I will also update the content. Many of the pages now contain videos. Note, this renovation means links will be broken so please use the menu.
What’s wrong with the Gospel?
According to George Barna 42% of Americans are “born again” and half of all americans are attending church on a typical Sunday. Yet the United States has by far the highest prison population in the world as well as the highest rate of incarceration. And the divorce rate (35%) among “born-agains” is the same as among others. Has the Gospel lost its power to save from sin? Or perhaps we just don’t know what it means to be born-again. more...
You shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.
“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.” (Mat 1:21 NKJ) Have you been saved from your sins? Many Christians claim to be saved, but have they been delivered from their sins? Or are they still slaves of their sins? Are you still a slave of your sins? Do you practice sin, enjoy it, pursue it? Then know for certain you are not saved from yours sins. Are you sexually immoral, a liar, a thief? Are you a lover of money or a lover of pleasure? Are you the center of your life rather than God? Do you love the world and the things of this world? Do you trust in your money, your insurance, your ability more than you trust in God? Do you love your family, your possessions, your life more than you love God? If so, know for certain you have not been saved from your sins.
Jesus came into this world to save from our sins, not just to save us from the consequence of those sins (hell – eternal banishment from God and His kingdom). Salvation is much more than forgiveness. It is a new life made in the image of Christ. It is restoration to God’s original purpose for Man. It is becoming truly a son of God. All this and more Jesus purchased for us by dying on the cross for us. And God has given all proof and assurance of these things by raising Jesus from the dead. All these promises are for those who will truly repent, entrust their lives to Jesus Christ and and follow Him.
and the Sufficiency of Scripture
I have a number of theology books on my shelves and over the years have read a number more. I have found them all to be less than useless. By that I mean they are positively harmful. Theology by its very nature is the work of men, often men who are not even born of God. The very fact these men find it necessary or helpful to write their thick and wearisome tomes tells us they do not believe that the God-breathed Scriptures are sufficient for Christians. more...
