  1. The lesson of Sabbath rest is that we are to rest from our own works and from doing our own will.......so that it is "no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me". Jesus never did His own works or will per se........"the Son can do nothing of himself". He didn't change the rules, but He fulfilled them in the way they were meant to be fulfilled.....which was/is not in the old way of the letter. His sabbath was 24/7, all the time....and that is the rest that we are to endeavour to enter as well.
  2. 'Christianity' is HUGE business in the last days especially, selling her sorceries. This is why Jesus said the love of money is the root of all evil....He was talking to His own. The word of Almighty God says to "buy the truth, and SELL IT NOT." Babylon's "merchants" will be lamenting when she is judged....great will be her fall. Rev 18:11-14 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
  3. Dear brother, with all love and due respect to this man, and to you as well, but in truth the flesh profits nothing anyhow....people come to faith in Christ through the foolishness of preaching the gospel, rather than through scientific or intellectual arguments. Jesus did not get into intellectual (or political for that matter) arguments with anyone about anything.....He just preached the foolishness of the gospel....and gave that same mandate to the church. People may have jobs/careers and such when they come to faith in Christ, whether in science, politics, academia, military or any other arena, and they may continue on to "whatsoever you do, do all as unto the Lord" after coming to know Him......but since it still costs everything to follow Jesus they might find they will need to lay these things on the altar at some point anyhow. Mat 13:44-46 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. I'm sure we are all in agreement that this is just as true today as when Jesus first preached it, and it's still foolishness to the perishing.
  4. Maybe I misunderstood but I thought you were in agreement with what I said there.....just was putting it in different words. I believe it is Jesus warning His own in that verse, rather than warning the lost. He was emphasizing the gravity of the danger that some were/are in, in hopes that they would wake up to their error. And ALSO, due to His foreknowledge God foreknows who will fall away so in that sense too, yes He never knew them.
  5. Sadly the church has become so worldly and and thin-skinned and doesn't even know it....suckling at the teat of the world's political correctness rather than being trained up in the word of God which says to "speak truth to your neighbour".
  6. Very important not to miss the irony of Jesus saying "I never knew you" in that scripture........He means that it is as if He never knew them.....even though they evidently believed in Him, or at least had started out in faith but then began to choose their own ways instead of His. Many who labour "for the Lord" are actually only feeding their own flesh of pride and ambition and even greed nowadays.....instead of doing the will of the Father which always comes at a cost rather than gaining from it.
  7. Jesus' sacrifice and mission was completed at the cross.....and as long as we have breath we also need to count the cost and take up our own cross and follow Jesus as well. To whom much is given much is required.....and a tree that doesn't bear fruit is cut down and burned. Scripture doesn't contradict itself....we need to take all of scripture together, not just some. Remember even Paul saying he didn't consider that he had yet attained.......because his race was not yet over and he still had some running to do. So then let us run the race with perseverance....why are people fighting these basic truths of the gospel? Yes we are saved by grace and faith not of our own.....so now what? Do we live as WE please, or do we say like Jesus, nevertheless not my will but THY will be done? Let's do as the epistles do and encourage and admonish one another to bear fruit in keeping with repentance instead of fighting against the truth. We are not justified by works of the LAW, but we are justified by works of the Lord within our vessels, which requires a price to pay on our part and our willingness. It's not as if we suddenly just became robots or puppets in the hands of the Lord and have no part in this at all.......our part is to offer back to Him our reasonable service. Count the cost of following Him and be building and preparing our temples and the Body of Christ to be a suitable habitation for the Lord. Jas 2:24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Isa 66:1 Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? Hag 1:4-5 Is it a time for you yourselves to dwell in your ceiled houses, while this house lieth waste? Now therefore thus saith Jehovah of hosts: Consider your ways.
  8. It would be SO much better if all the preachers in the pulpits of today would just try really hard to resist the temptation to add their own commentary and do nothing but read the bible to the people, especially the New Testament. It's so sad to see those who fight tooth and nail against the ABC's of following Christ and treat the admonishments of scripture like some foreign thing. God bless those who are contending for the truth here. Some are so obtusely deaf and blind to simple bible truths, I can't help but wonder why that is, and it truly makes me fear for their souls. Where is the fear of God and working out our salvation with fear and trembling? Sure if someone dies one minute after receiving Jesus, they they don't need all those exhortations, admonishments and warnings....but if anyone is still breathing they better stop laying the foundation over and over again and go on to maturity. Most people live on after coming to faith in Christ, and there is a race we need to run lawfully (that means obeying Jesus and not sinning), and it needs to be run so as to win it. But I fear that many of the nay-sayers don't seem to even know that the things being said to them are in the bible. It's time to grow up kids...after salvation comes denying yourself, taking up your cross and following Jesus. He is coming soon for a bride without spot or wrinkle.
  9. Just guessing but Luther's bad attitude towards the Jews might have started out due to frustration and condemnation because of his unsuccessful efforts to convert them. (Only the Holy Spirit is able to bypass their resistance.) And then that led to being overtaken by a full-blown spirit of antisemitism. It's very easy for an anti-semitic spirit to take hold, as history has shown.....we need to be so careful of that and not walk in the flesh....but at the same time make no mistake that unbelieving Jews are lost souls, unbelievers, so we are not to follow the Jews nor be unequally yoked with them. The scriptures say we are to show them MERCY....and even when or if we are persecuted by them remember we are to LOVE our enemies. Rom 11:7-8 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. Rom 11:14-16 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. Rom 11:22-23 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. Rom 11:25-26 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: Rom 11:28-29 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are BELOVED for the fathers' sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. Rom 11:30-32 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that THROUGH YOUR MERCY they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
  10. We need to understand what faith is. Faith is not of our own, that no man may boast. Whose faith is it then......and to Who belongs the glory? It is the faith of Christ, by HIS spirit.
  11. This video paints a very clear picture of the times we are living in, just in case anybody is not sure. Also would like to ask that we please pray for Jacob Prasch, for his health and strength. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0sJfdCV-Tw
  12. Yes.....Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life, as we follow Him on that Way. The same narrow Way that He walked on as our forerunner.
  13. Luk 22:42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. Mat 16:24-25 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
  14. I was only saying what the bible says. However, I completely agree that faith is not of our own, that no man may boast. Heb 11:39 (NASB) And all these, having [fn]gained approval through their faith, did not receive [fn]what was promised, Heb 11:39 (KJV) And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: Heb 11:39 (NIV) These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised,
  15. Everything is by faith.....salvation is by faith......obedience is by faith........righteousness is by faith. All the righteous old testament saints were commended for their faith, in contrast to the religious leaders of Israel who failed to combine their zeal for God with faith (they were self-righteous). It matters a great deal how we live.....all the new testament scriptures are full of instruction in righteousness. Now that we have believed, we are to obey the gospel and live by the faith of the Son of God who died for us....and we are admonished to be conformed to His image and to walk as He did....and purge out the old leaven of the old man....etc. There is no competition between faith in Christ and righteousness...the two go hand in hand. Gal 6:7-9 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Jas 2:14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
