Led by the Spirit, PAUL PREDICTED EVIL in the last days: “In the last days, GRIEVOUS TIMES will come. For men will be LOVERS OF SELF, lovers of MONEY, boastful, ARROGANT, blasphemers, DISOBEDIENT to parents, unthankful, UNHOLY, without natural affection [HOMOSEXUALS], UNFORGIVING, slanderers, without self-control, FIERCE, no [NOT] LOVERS OF GOOD, traitors, headstrong, conceited, LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS OF GOD; holding a FORM OF GODLINESS [calling themselves ‘CHRISTIANS’], but having denied its power.”

Evil in the Last Days — Led by the Spirit, Paul predicted in 1 Timothy 3:1-8 (WEB):

“But know this, that in the last days, GRIEVOUS TIMES will come. For men will be LOVERS OF SELF, lovers of MONEY, boastful, ARROGANT, blasphemers, DISOBEDIENT to parents, unthankful, UNHOLY, without natural affection [HOMOSEXUALS], UNFORGIVING, slanderers, without self-control, FIERCE, no [NOT] LOVERS OF GOOD, traitors, headstrong, conceited, LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS OF GOD; holding a FORM OF GODLINESS [calling themselves ‘CHRISTIANS’], but having denied its power.

TURN AWAY FROM THESE, also. For some of these are people who creep into houses, and take captive gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, ALWAYS LEARNING, and NEVER ABLE TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH. Even as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so do these also OPPOSE THE TRUTH; men corrupted in mind, who concerning the faith, are rejected.

This week, pre-order a signed, numbered copy of Hyper-Grace: Exposing the Dangers of the Modern Grace Message, for $30, postage paid. (The book is 304 pages long and will be released January 7th.) (US ONLY)

Book Description:

The great deception of the 21st century

At a time when the church needs an urgent wake-up call and a fresh encounter with Jesus, the hyper-grace message is lulling many to sleep. Claiming to be a new revelation of grace, this teaching is gaining in popularity, but is it true? Or is the glorious truth of grace being polluted by errors, leading to backsliding, compromise, and even the abandonment of faith?

Hyper-Grace looks at the major teachings put forth by many adherents of this “grace reformation” and prayerfully compares those teachings with the Word of God, answering questions such as:

·          How do our sins affect our relationship with God?

·          What is the relevance of the Old Testament to our faith?

·          What does Jesus actually have to say about grace?

 Without watering down the Bible’s true message of grace, Michael Brown gives you the facts, demonstrating the dangers of this seductive message and showing you how to keep from being taken in.

Why Should We Believe in the Inerrancy of Scripture? — Jesus Believed in Verbal Inspiration; Paul based an argument upon the fact that a particular word is singular and not plural

There are scoffers who are leading people astray to just “do what feels good” — which is basically anarchy, giving demons a right to enter, control, and minimize sin.

The New Testament is particularly important for us, because we live in the new covenant, just like them. We can learn a lot from how they were led by the Holy Spirit and the proclamations they shared from the Holy Spirit, which are mostly still totally applicable today.

Thank God for the Bible and the Holy Spirit — Himself in us — Who gives us eyes to see, and Who is consistent over time!

We can trust His words to us and them. But if we throw out what He said to them, we’re on really shaky ground. Because we need to have a level of holiness so we’re only hearing the Holy Spirit’s one, “still, small voice.”

It’s important to know the written word of God and hear His voice today — and learn from what others are hearing, those are also obeying so they can be free.

A man was challenging the scoffers on Facebook a few hours ago, and included this link. I thought I’d share. This includes links to my other posts on this subject.

“Do what thou wilt” is Satanism, by the way. That’s where the anti-church, anti-Bible scoffers are leading many — to hell.

Why Should We Believe in the Inerrancy of Scripture?

by Brian Edwards

July 5, 2011

Introduction

“You don’t really believe the Bible is true, do you?”

The shock expressed by those who discover someone who actually believes the Bible to be without error is often quite amusing. Inevitably, their next question takes us right back to Genesis. But what does the Christian mean by “without error,” and why are we so sure?

[…]

Jesus Believed in Verbal Inspiration

In John 10:34 Jesus quoted from Psalm 82:6 and based His teaching upon a phrase: “I said, ‘You are gods.’” In other words, Jesus proclaimed that the words of this psalm were the words of God. Similarly, in Matthew 22:31–32 He claimed the words of Exodus 3:6 were given to them by God. In Matthew 22:43–44 our Lord quoted from Psalm 110:1 and pointed out that David wrote these words “in the Spirit,” meaning he was actually writing the words of God.

Paul Believed in Verbal Inspiration

Paul based an argument upon the fact that a particular word in the Old Testament is singular and not plural. Writing to the Galatians, Paul claimed that in God’s promises to Abraham, “He does not say, ‘And to seeds,’ as of many, but as of one, ‘And to your Seed,’ who is Christ” (Galatians 3:16). Paul quoted from Genesis 12:713:15; and 24:7. In each of these verses, our translators used the word “descendants,” but the Hebrew word is singular. The same word is translated “seed” in Genesis 22:18. Paul’s argument here is that God was not primarily referring to Israel as the offspring of Abraham, but to Christ.

What is significant is the way Paul drew attention to the fact that the Hebrew word in Genesis is singular. This demonstrates a belief in verbal inspiration because it mattered to Paul whether God used a singular or plural in these passages of the Old Testament. It is therefore not surprising Paul wrote that one of the advantages of being a Jew was the fact that “they have been entrusted with the very words of God” (Romans 3:2, NIV). Even many critics of the Bible agree that the Scriptures clearly teach a doctrine of verbal inerrancy.

Why Do Good People Become Silent—or Worse—about 9/11?

Written by Frances T. Shure, 2013

911-experts-shureFrances Shure, M.A., L.P.C.

“If what you are saying is true, I don’t want to know!” exclaimed a young male visitor at our 9/11 Truth booth at the Denver People’s Fair. He was referring to the evidence of controlled demolition of the three World Trade Center (WTC) skyscrapers on September 11, 2001.

“Why?” I asked.

“Because if what you are saying is true, I would become very negative. Psychologically, I would go downhill.”

With gratitude, I responded “Thank you!”

Surprised, he asked, “Why are you thanking me?”

“Because it’s rare to hear such raw truth. Thank you for being so honest.”

Softened by our exchange, the young man chatted with me a while longer before taking his leave. I have never forgotten him; he has likely never forgotten me. We both felt it. Paradoxically, deep truth had been shared.  …

To reiterate what I said in the film 9/11: Experts Speak Out, fear is the emotion that underlies most of the negative reactions toward 9/11 skeptics’ information: fear of receiving information that will turn our world upside down, fear of being overwhelmed by our own emotions, fear of psychological deterioration, fear our life will have to change, fear we’ll discover that the world is not a safe place, fear that our reputation will be tarnished or that we’ll lose our jobs, fear of being shunned or banished by friends and family, and fear of looking like a fool because we bought the official account so thoroughly.

This last reason may be true especially for intellectuals who often identify strongly with their intellect. None of us, however, like to feel bamboozled, as this often threatens our very identity and brings us very close to feeling betrayed. Carl Sagan knew this when he said,

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.5

Social psychologist and scholar Laurie Manwell tells us that one of her professors said that he could sum up human behavior with this statement: “People liked to be liked, they like to be right, and they like to be free—in that order.” Thus, most people will give up their need to be right or free if their need to be liked is threatened.6 Why is this?

The fear of banishment is surely among the greatest fears we humans harbor, albeit often unconsciously.We are social creatures. We need others in order to survive, and we need to have a sense of belonging. To have some sense of wholeness and well-being, we need to feel connected to others, to love and to be loved. This is the reason that ridicule and shaming are such potent strategies used—consciously or unconsciously—to censor those with views that diverge from a culture’s sacred mythology.

A “sacred myth” is a special story, found in every culture, whether true, untrue, or partially true, that tells us who we are and why we are doing what we are doing.8

What is our American sacred myth? It goes something like this:

We are a truly exceptional nation with exceptional forefathers. We rebelled against tyranny and established a democratic republic, a model that the world has largely accepted and imitated. Our country is the purveyor of democracy and freedom around the world and our interventions in other countries are benevolent actions. On September 11, 2001, we were caught off-guard when al Qaeda terrorists in a sneak attack, similar to that at Pearl Harbor, succeeded in flying commercial airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the most significant wound to our homeland to date. However, true to the American spirit, we immediately rose to the challenge to militarily smite the world of terrorists who hate us because of our freedoms. This is why we have an unending Global War on Terror.

If we can set aside this belief in our sacred myth, look at the evidence, and recognize that 9/11 was a false flag operation, then we may also fear severe repercussions from corrupt authorities if we should speak out. As one person told me, “I appreciate everything you all are doing with this 9/11 issue, but I hope you understand, I have children; I can’t get involved with this.”

Fear is an integral part of the human condition; and yet, if we are committed to psycho-spiritual growth, we do not let fear dictate what we do—or do not do. We can be aware of the fear while not letting it rule our lives. …

Many of us unconsciously relate to our governmental leaders as parental figures on whom we project our (often unmet) needs for a protective parent. We even agree culturally to the term “our founding fathers.”

EXCITING message at Abbott Loop this morning by Josh Tanner: “Ambassadors of Reconciliation!” — ‘ONE’ can still happen this year “that the world will know” — Jesus’ heart-cry-prayer for us in John 17!

I updated my thinking on this message 6 weeks later, here:

 

The Most Disappointing Message on RECONCILIATION (Abbott Loop) — At first I was excited, but then MY HEART SANK, realizing once-saved-always-saved destroyed the fruit, which should have been massive. Josh Tanner taught that people who hurt people and refuse to get right will have ‘RECONCILIATION PARTIES’ in heaven? • False doctrine is keeping ‘ONE’ from happening so God can show up and “the world will know” (John 17)!

And here:

Josh Tanner’s “Ambassadors of Reconciliation” message — People who have hurt people will go to heaven and can reconcile there???##!!!!

I just posted this on my Facebook page:

EXCITING message at Abbott Loop this morning by Josh Tanner: “Ambassadors of Reconciliation!”

‘ONE’ can still happen this year, “that the world will know” — Jesus’ heart-cry-prayer for us in John 17! The great revival, The Third Great Awakening that will transform Anchorage and greatly affect our nation!

Some things Josh said:

“We need to learn how to become excellent at reconciliation.”

“Am I wrecking or reconciling? You’re going one way or the other.”

He had them all say “I was wrong” out loud at minute-29.

Wow!

Selah.

The message wasn’t all great, though. At minute-16, Josh said we can hate people and still go to heaven, and then get right with people there. What?!

Huh? People who hate people don’t go to heaven (Gal. 5:19-6:9), which I’ve also proven in my article, linked below. Josh is still teaching the once-saved-always-saved heresy that is deceiving many into thinking we don’t need to walk clean now so we’ll have clean hearts to be able to enter then.

Josh did enthusiastically say we shouldn’t wait, though.

Overall, it was very good, and this is now only the second message I’ve heard in my entire life devoted only to reconciliation. The first was also by Josh in October, but I like this one much better. Very exciting, actually!

Praise God!

I’ll include some key links about this below. I’ve been pushing for this hard since 1990 — at one time too hard. But I’ve hung in there, because I know this is God’s desire for us, and we can do it!

Though the U.S. is dark, the future can be bright for us no matter what happens!!! : )

Thank you, Josh for leading this reconciliation charge!

Rick Joyner: “REPENTANCE includes RESTITUTION for the wrongs that have caused injury to others”

Can ‘Christians’ use Paul’s “Forgetting the things which are behind…I press on” statement as an excuse to not get right with those they’ve hurt? Paul also said: “I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” What if you don’t repent? And what will happen when you do? The Third Great Awakening can start with us!!! We can all be happy — ‘ONE’!
