“God’s ability to save us isn’t the issue… The issue is us. Will we continue to love him? Will we forsake him? Will we make the sacrifice necessary to endure to the end? God’s part in salvation was executed on the cross. Our part doesn’t conclude until the day we enter eternity”

“God’s ability to save us isn’t the issue. His great grace isn’t either, nor is his love or his promise never to leave or forsake us. The issue is us. Will we continue to love him? Will we forsake him? Will we make the sacrifice necessary to endure to the end? God’s part in salvation was executed on the cross. Our part doesn’t conclude until the day we enter eternity.”

Presumption regarding our salvation must be replaced with humility and sobriety

“Presumption regarding our salvation must be replaced with humility and sobriety. There is little value in overconfidence regarding our position in Christ yet there is supreme value in continually analyzing our heart, living in joyful repentance and working out our salvation with fear and trembling.”

(1 min video) Kung Fu: ‘To HATE is Like Drinking Salt Water – your thirst grows worse’ • “I have seen the silkworm. It spins a thread. Thinking itself to be safe, it has spun a tomb” • “Hate is the tomb you weave. It will not save you from your suffering”

KCC: I must leave soon.

Woman: What should I do?

KCC: What do you feel?

Woman: Hate. Fills the emptiness where my child grew.

KCC: To hate is like drinking salt water. Your thirst grows worse.

Woman: Don’t you understand what I feel?

KCC: I have seen the silkworm. It spins a thread. Thinking itself to be safe, it has spun a tomb. Hate is the tomb you weave. It will not save you from your suffering.

Woman: That’s what I feel. What can I do with it?

KCC: Perhaps there is room to bury your hate in that small grave where we have come from.

“In Christ” – ‘In Him’ is found 164 times in Paul’s epistles” • “The Christian experience is first and foremost a personal experience” – Chuck Baldwin

Jesus’ greatest commandment:

“Those two words, ‘in Him’ are found 164 times in Paul’s epistles.”

“The Christian experience is first and foremost a personal experience. If you don’t have a personal experience with Christ you don’t know Christ, and you don’t have salvation.”

 Message Highlight – Preach The Gospel Of Peace

Jesus told 5 out of 7 churches in Revelation they were lost, on the way to destruction — Today, over 90% of “The Believers” STILL DON’T GET IT AND ARE MARCHING RIGHT INTO HELL…..believing they’re “under Grace” while LIVING IN SIN!!!???

Jesus told five out of seven churches of believers in Revelation that they were lost, on the way to destruction. The Smyrna believers were about to enter tribulation, whom he encouraged. Notice again! Jesus said that five out seven Christian churches of believers were on their way to Hell. Only the church of Philadelphia was doing well because they had kept [obeyed] his word with patient endurance.

Massive error had already taken hold 2000 years ago, until today the false church is pervasive with grace supposedly being a license to continue to sin…..And yet it seems evident to me (today) that over 90% of “The Believers” here in America STILL DON’T GET IT AND ARE MARCHING RIGHT INTO HELL…..still believing that they’re “under Grace” while STILL LIVING IN SIN!!!???
