Promoting Obedience to God and the Preeminence of Jesus Christ as Revealed in the Holy Bible

Promoting Obedience to God and the Preeminence of Jesus Christ as Revealed in the Holy Bible

Introduction Jesus never said it would be easy In fact, He said it would be difficult In John 15:20, Jesus says, “If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also” Furthermore, 2nd Timothy 3:12-13 says, “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived” Doesn’t this last verse ring true, considering the present state of the world Matters have gotten worse, and Christians are persecuted more than ever before for proclaiming the Good News and upholding God’s law We truly live in a world of darkness, where enemies conspire against us for following God Jesus knew this would happen, as he said, “They hated me without reason” (John 15:25) Read More

What does the Bible say about obedience?

What does the Bible say about obedience?

Answer: The Bible has much to say about obedience In fact, obedience is an essential part of the Christian faith Jesus Himself was “obedient unto death, even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:8) For Christians, the act of taking up our cross and following Christ (Matthew 16:24) means obedience The Bible says that we show our love for Jesus by obeying Him in all things: “If you love Me, keep My commandments” (John 14:15) A Christian who is not obeying Christ’s commands can rightly be asked, “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say” (Luke 6:46) Read More

Summoning Up Demons

Summoning Up Demons

Jan Markel | Olive Tree Ministries I have to be honest: This is an article I wish I didn't have to write The Christian walk is about good news, not bad So I promise to take some bad news and turn it into good news before I am finished But some of the paragraphs about which I write contain the inconvenient truth This is a call to prayer and spiritual warfare We are battling principalities and powers (Ephesians 6:12) and they are not even subtle today They are bolder than some believers and some pulpits today But were the church not here to provide a buffer against evil, the battle would be more intense Can you imagine the chaos of the Tribulation when there is no restrainer Read More

The Curses on Kavanaugh: Do They Matter?

The Curses on Kavanaugh: Do They Matter?

By Bryan Fischer A Prayer for Justice Brett Kavanaugh is listed below  and  is in response to a concerted effort on the part of satanists, wiccans, witches, and spiritists to curse Judge Kavanaugh in New York City, on Saturday, October 20, 2018 By now, most Americans will have heard about the rituals performed in Brooklyn last Saturday (October 20) to place hexes on new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh The “Witches of Bushwick” carved his name into a black candle, doused it in “Revenge Oil,” and then set it on fire Three "poppets" - cloth dolls made to look like real people - adorned the altar, effigies of Kavanaugh, President Trump, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell The effigies of the three were burned, along with their pictures Graveyard dirt, coffin nails, and a caldron were likewise part of the ritual Read More

The Voting Booth: Where Liberty Lives or Dies

The Voting Booth: Where Liberty Lives or Dies

Bill Cook | Western Journal When the earthly well-being of a pastor’s congregation is riding on Christians fulfilling their duty to vote, it’s his duty to remind his congregation of that fact I’ve said before that Christians have an obligation to vote, if for no other reason than to counterbalance the political aims of those who would do evil If we believe the word of God, we know that every person is either alive in Christ or dead in trespasses and sins The Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians that the latter “walk according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience”  Read More

Where Are The Men With Power In The Pulpits Today ?

Where Are The Men With Power In The Pulpits Today ?

"If we want to see revival in our churches again we need to preach the difficult truths" Shane Idleman (clip below from his Should the World Love Church ) Shane Idleman | BARBWIRE I’m an avid reader of books about revivals and spiritual awakenings written by those who actually experienced them Ironically, many, if not all, say that we must preach and proclaim God’s Word with authority if we are to experience true revival The New Testament also bears this out—without authority and power from on high, words are lifeless There is nothing to fear when preaching the truth God ordained it, and He blesses it He desires that all men “come to the knowledge of the truth” (I Timothy 2:4) Read More

Shepherds Surrendering the Vote to the Sons of Disobedience

Shepherds Surrendering the Vote to the Sons of Disobedience

Rev William Cook Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedienceEphesians 2:2 For the past four weeks, I have been working on behalf of Ryan McAdams, a pastor and the leader of the Virginia Prayer Caucus, who has been called of God to run for Congress in Virginia’s Fourth Congressional District My focus has been on encouraging fellow pastors to show the brief video, “What Difference Does [One Vote] Make” (video below) to their congregations in one or more Sunday services remaining in September, display a PowerPoint slide containing a “text-to-register” number, and distribute a brochure on the moral duty of Christians’ to vote The video is compelling, scrupulously non-partisan, and at 1 minute and 40 seconds, hardly an imposition on a Sunday agenda Read More
