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

Merry Christmas from the Moon

Merry Christmas from the Moon

The Virginia Christian Alliance thanks all of our readers this year for their support and we continue our efforts to focus on the values that matter to Christians most.  From the Sanctity of Life to the culture wars that rage around us.  But there is no higher calling than that of the commission given to us in Matthew 28:18-20, 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen Read More

Let’s pray for persecuted Christians who celebrate Christmas with fear in trembling

Let’s pray for persecuted Christians who celebrate Christmas with fear in trembling

December 24, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Nobody knows where Asia Bibi, the Pakistani Christian woman recently released from years on death row for “blaspheming” the Muslim religion, will spend Christmas. Her spokesman said only that it will be in a closed room in protective custody, to keep her safe from the mobs in Pakistan who have been baying for her blood since the nation’s supreme court acquitted her of the charges. Many Western nations that enjoy bragging about their love of human rights have refused to offer this beleaguered woman asylum from her tormentors. Read More

The Wolves Have Entered the Church and are Enemies Within

The Wolves Have Entered the Church and are Enemies Within

Trevor Loudon “Enemies Within: The Church” is going to produce the evidence, expose the false teachers and the underlying agenda to undermine the influence of Christ across the world. Every single problem we face in the western world is, ultimately, a theological problem, and every solution to every problem is a theological absolute. What happened to living, powerful, transformative, nation-shaking Christianity You know…the kind Jesus brought the world Something dressed up like to look like Christianity is doing just fine, here in America, but is it a counterfeit It certainly resembles Christianity, but most of the people I know sense that something is wrong.

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
