Search me oh God!!! Amen brother!!!
The Gospel and all scripture should first and foremost offend each and everyone of us personally, as Paul, says in scripture all should see themselves as the chief of sinners, made right, saved , sanctified in Christ Alone
Every Word has eternal context!!!
The â€ś Re-Engineering, forever building a new church â€śThis Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.â€ť
â€â€Actsâ€¬ â€4:11â€¬ â€ESVâ€¬â€¬
Who are these builders?
The Freemasons ?
One Great Commission Church never meant what it means today. Itâ€™s not a building or even a gathering for religious worship and activities.
Original word for church was â€ś the ecclesiaâ€ť which translated means â€śthe called out â€ś
Christâ€™s church is the â€ścalled out â€ś
Called out of sin and death, called out of darkness, called out of paganism/religious idolatry, called out of unbelief!
Christ is freedom from religion!
Christ abolished religion with the old covenant, its purpose fulfilled, the letter announcing the Spirit and fullness thereof to come is fulfilled in Christ !!!
He embodies, obeys and adjudicates All the Law, penetrating down to the motive! He resides in believers hearts therefore He is the Law written on their heart! He makes us holy, He commands we love God with all our heart, mind, body, soul, and others as ourselves, this is the Whole Law. He told His disciples to GO out into all nations and preach Him, His Glorious Gospel , and the world will know we are disciples by the way we love each other. Truth in Grace is Love, to love someone is to teach them Christ and Him crucified for their sin!!!
Nothing else matters
Will you die twice? Very timely, all scripture is eternal and has ONE objective, that is to point all to Christ and Trust Only Christ, this life is preparation to meet Him !!!
If you have trusted in religion you are not ready!!!
Sovereign Grace Nothing and no one slips Under His radar, nor thwarts His will
Thank you brother David!
Indeed you are a whale of a preacher, and
as our lovable lioness E says, you preach Gods Word, plain and simple, as intended, and He takes us from useless to useful when we hear Him speak His Mighty Word through you!!!
God only knows... ...why He calls Whom He calls, no one is ready nor able in their own power to preach the gospel, itâ€™s not through their own nor others good intentions or efforts, BUT to Gods glory, He makes the weak and reluctant more than able, steadfast in battle to press on to the end, for their reward will not be here, but to suffer for the cause of Christ!!!
Godâ€™s Spirit Alone empowers equips and commands the watchman, the blessed messengers who go and tell the world the Good News!!!
Beautiful are their worn and bloodied feet
Finally put Christ on and go Thank God He gave us the Gospel...Christ His Word made flesh, Eternal Sovereign Power Infallible Completely Sufficient and Unconditional for salvation, according to Godâ€™s elective Will!
For the Word of God without failure is the Only pure pulpit. Christ commanded ALL His disciples/followers to go out into all nations and simply preach Him Who was crucified, in order that sinners be saved!
Brothers and sisters, we as believers are sufficiently equipped to take Christâ€™s pulpit, wherever we preaching Him crucified! The Gospel decides who will believe! He engineers our circumstances, He sees who uses it His pulpit! Almighty Triune God set His conditions before time, sealed in His Glorious Gospel Covenant of Grace!
We must finally repent of religious piety, pagan entertainment and convoluted intellectual lectures, all useless satanic distractions.
Our chief end is to be about the business of preaching Christ to all we meet, for this is what glorifies God!
Great Sermon! We may not burn our children in the fire... but we abort them, and teach them evil, that there is no God... same ending is for us is coming...
"Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, behold, I am bringing upon this city and upon all its towns all the disaster that I have pronounced against it, because they have stiffened their neck, refusing to hear my words."â€ť
Oh Father help us see hear and follow Christ
Teach me to pray Father!!! I must admit Brother David, I am rebuked... my prayer life has never lived up to the glorious examples found throughout the scriptures..powerful pleas and weeping without shame-found throughout...psalms, prophets, even our Lord and the Apostles
They held nothing back!!!
May we be so raw, so moved, so desperately candid and wanting,
Oh Dear Father help us to pray as children do, without fear but with zeal and reckless abandon, knowing You are our good and loving Father!
Trust Christ Scripture shows time and again how Satan uses his mob to silence/crucify Truth...
since the beginning he has twisted Gods Word to appeal to manâ€™s lustful evil heart...He knows us very well...he appeals to the Pharisee and the Philistine, the lawyer and the lawless, both seeking to please self...religious paganists
Man will protest Truth and mobs will gather to crucify...
BUT God shuts the mouth of all
Hear Godâ€™s Great Sermon! Thank you Brother David, for your relentless witness to Gods Holy Sovereignty in Christ, His Gospel, His glory and power of salvation
God please open eyes ears and hearts to repent and believe /trust Only Christ !!!
2 Laws, which one rules? 2 men, 2 Laws
Letter or Spirit?
Weakened by flesh or Mighty in God?
Without Glory or Glorifying ?
Under curses or under Blessings ?
Christ is the Only Law that litigates manâ€™s evil heart and makes it Holy
The Great Deception continues Just flabbergasted as to why in the world would the fathers of the faith, and even the reformers not see that no one could keep the mosaic law in the old covenant ... why on earth would they point us back to it...
there can be only one reason
