As I have said in the past, the human brain works much like a computer works. If I design a program that reaches a conclusion that 1 + 1 = 3 then I will continuously get the same conclusion until I fix the problem with the program. So too, the thoughts that we have; they are the product of our programming. By changing your programming you will change the thoughts that your mind produces. This means that we can be happier without changing anything around us.
Have you ever had an experience were you needed an answer, deliverance from a situation but the answer wasn’t there? You had your own philosophy of how things should work but when it came right down to it you didn’t have the what it took to be the super conqueror that it talks about in Romans chapter eight. The best thing is a heaping helping of the accuracy of God’s Word, the Bible, which gives us the knowledge ability and strength to succeed
The world has come to the point that the Christians are scared of God and that the non-Christians have no second thoughts in laughing at the Christian and at God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth. This is much like trying to drive a horse and buggy backwards or for a farmer to live in the barn while the cows are in the house. It is insanity. The proper attitude for the Christian is love and respect for our loving heavenly Father while the unbelievers should be the ones that are afraid of our God and the Christian because God is on OUR SIDE
Many people believe God to be a wrathful God, a Hell fire and brimstone God, and a vengeful God. But what does. I see and believe that God is a loving God, a caring God and the God of grace, mercy and peace. But it really doesn’t matter of what we think; it matters what God says
As I read about current events and watch the news on TV I get the distinct feeling that America is tearing itself apart needlessly.
What I mean by this is that the camps of Democrats, Liberals. Republicans, Noecons, atheists, Christians (of all flavors) are verbally attacking each other, blaming each other for the ills of the nation while the politicians fiddle
n today’s world there are many refuters of God’s Word (the Bible). They are not happy unless they can prove that the Bible is full of myths and inaccuracies and one of the ways they do this is to say that God is not in business anymore to deliver His people by miracles. As a matter of fact a lot of the leadership in the Christian Church denies that there is a super natural realm and that people can be delivered from sickness, mental afflictions and the problems that they find themselves in. This is contrary to the truth of God’s Word. God says that He wants us to be in health and to prosper (III John 2) and that we as Christians have been delivered from the power of darkness ( Colossians 1: 12 & 13). So why are we not seeing the deliverance in the Church that we should be seeing?
As I looked through the headlines on World Net Daily my attention has been arrested by the Headline “China sweeping Christians out”. It seems that the Chinese government has decided that Christian missionaries aren’t worthy to stay in China before or during the Olympics so the Chinese government is expelling them.
So, let me see if I have this right, the whole Christian world is invited to China for the Olympics. But, to have the games all missionaries have to get out. Have I got that right? Now I have a problem with that and EVERY CHRISTIAN IN THE WORLD, should have the same problem
In part one of BORN AGAIN we looked at what it is to be “born again” In part two I want to look at some of the rights and privileges of being “born again” of God’s spirit.
The Pope just signed a document that says “ non-Catholic Christian communities are either defective or not true churches”. The Pope goes on to say that “ other Christian communities such as Protestants ‘cannot be called ‘churches’ in the proper sense since they don’t have what’s known as apostolic succession- that is, the ability to trace bishops back to the original apostles of Jesus’” WORLDNETDAILY. This statement needs to be addressed but not the way most in other Christian communities will. They will bluster and harrumph but they won’t get to the truth of the matter. Well, that’s where I guess I come in.
How many of you know what it means to be born again and how many of you know what it means to you to be born again? They are two distinctly different things.
The starting point for all “would be Christians” is Romans 10:9&10.
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
