God’s judgment and this world

Our God is a consuming fire

A recent article I read identifies society’s corruption that the Prophet Jeremiah experienced in his day some 2,600-years ago. It also reveals how today’s corrupt world parallels Jeremiah’s world back then. Naturally, such a situation brought about God’s judgment on the world as stated in the Bible:

"And upon Elam [on the Northeast side of the Persian Gulf] will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam [the Elamites] shall not come.  37 For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the Lord; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them:  38 And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the Lord."  (Jeremiah 49:36-38)

Parable of the Education System

Parable of the Education System
This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Initial and Final Salvation

Jesus Christ used parables to describe what the Kingdom of Heaven was like. This article represents a modern-day parable of the education system. As such systems of education are found in many countries, they are used to illustrate the Biblical truth about Salvation and how God expects His people to progress and mature from beginning (Initial Salvation) to the end (Final Salvation). 

The scripture verse that underscores the message in this post is this:

It is written in the prophets, And THEY [ALL truly 'born-again' Christians] shall be ALL TAUGHT [PERSONALLY] of God [the Father].  Every [truly 'born-again'] man [or woman] therefore that hath HEARD, and hath LEARNED of [God] THE FATHER, COMETH UNTO ME [Jesus—at the Rapture].”  (John 6:45)

Every Christian commences their faith-journey when he or she first accepts Christ as their personal Savior. This symbolizes in the parable a young child commencing their education years in kindergarten.

Fake Preachers Preach Fake Gospels

If you are a Christian, you should be aware that fake preachers preach fake gospels that cannot save a soul from anything.

When the first Christians commenced spreading the True Gospel of Jesus Christ among the gentile nations, the Apostle Paul ultimately termed it “My Gospel” as stated in Rom 2:16 and Rom 16:25. This is because Paul’s Gospel contained a “mystery” (Eph 6:19) and that his Gospel had to be “obeyed” (Rom 10:16).

Paul ultimately concluded that it was “his Gospel” that Jesus Christ would use as the ‘standard’ by which to judge Christians at ‘The Judgment’:

In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ ACCORDING TO MY GOSPEL.”

Romans 2:16

Do you believe the One True Gospel?

Street Preacher
This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series Initial and Final Salvation

There are many ‘gospels’ being preached in the churches today that cannot Save! This article helps Christians to determine if the ‘gospel’ they have believed is the ONE True Gospel or one of many false gospels.

Characteristics of the One True Gospel

Firstly, there is ONLY One True Gospel that is able to save people from spending eternity in Hell – and that is the Apostle’ Paul’s Gospel that he referred to as “My Gospel”. 

The key characteristics about Paul’s Gospel are these:

  • Paul’s Gospel contains a “mystery”.  Every truly born-again Christian should understand what this “mystery” is and be able to share it with others. 

    Sadly, most Christians today don’t want to even talk about this requirement.  Instead, they believe their ‘preferred gospel’ rather than look for the ONE True Gospel.

  • Paul’s Gospel MUST be “obeyed”. 

    All modern ‘gospels’ require people to hear and believe that they are Saved.  Nothing else is required except maybe water baptism (Mark 16:16) Therefore, such preaching omits the need for any “obedience” to the One True Gospel, making such Christians “disobedient” towards God.

    Most modern false gospels also condemn the need for any “works” being necessary to secure Salvation.  Such claims are a lie if we use the Bible as our reference.

Spirit, Soul and Body — the Inner and Outer Man

Location of our Spiritual Organs
This entry is part 1 of 6 in the series Spirit Soul and Body

Most Christians do not appreciate that they have their own personal Spirit which is contained within their physical Body termed the Outer Man. The Outer Man also contains their Inner Man that the scriptures refer to as the Soul.

The presence of both the human Spirit within the Soul is termed the “Inward Man” as shown in the scripture verse below. It is this invisible spiritual component of “mankind” that departs the deceased body to spend the remainder of eternity elsewhere.

…but though our OUTWARD MAN perish, yet the INWARD MAN is renewed day by day.”  

2 Corinthians 4:16

This article is the first one in a series that aims to help Christians understand more about their spiritual ‘organs’ that our Creator has given us—and from this, obtain a better understanding as to how the spirit world around us functions.

Part 1 of the Spirit, Soul and the Body series examined the spiritual ‘organs’ God has provided to us within our “Inner Man”. This article examines the MIND and how it relates to the other spiritual ‘organs’ and how they function in the controlling of the body.

This article covers the following topics:

  1. Mankind ‘s MIND
  2. Mankind’s MIND and our five physical senses
