“Calvinism Vs Arminianism – 101”…Blog.
“Calvinism Vs Arminianism – 101”…Blog.
“I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”
Do you follow… any of the teachings of these ‘two schools’ of thought about what… ‘specifically’… the Bible teaches? If you do, I ask you Why…? “Neither”… are totally ‘correct’ and “Biblical!” “IF”… you have to follow some reasoning, and you call yourself ‘Christian’… “Why not follow “ONLY” what God has said in His Holy True Word?” Why would you hear and learn teaching – that mixes ‘Truth with Lies?’ Don’t you believe God and His Holy Word… “The Bible”…?
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (Numbers 23:19) God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken, and shall He not make it good?
Why when ‘God’… has given ‘His Holy Spirit’… ‘To’ those that are ‘Truly Born Again’… by His Holy Spirit… ‘THEN’ ‘want’… His Children… Listen to Someone Else…?
He does “NOT” want that… “But”… ‘They’ do so anyway… just as OT Israel… ‘prostituted’ themselves… to ‘other’ teachings and ‘other’… false gods [small-g]…!
‘Denominationalism’… has replaced the ‘teaching and preaching’ of God’s Holy Word! Those that say they… ‘Love Jesus’… love the opinions of ‘Others’; more than they love… “His Word!” Most will defend their “Denomination and Church”… teachings and preaching’s… “Against” = ‘The Bible! Say it isn’t So…? Just look at the groups; who say Sabbath keeping is for the NT Church! And those that preach Water Baptism for Salvation…? And those who… get mad at you when you share… “The Truth”… from the Bible!
*** (John 10:1-to-5) Truly, truly, I say to you, He who does not enter into the sheepfold by the door, but going up by another way, that one is a thief and a robber.
(John 10:2) But he who enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
(John 10:3) The doorkeeper opens to him, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
(John 10:4) And when he puts forth his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him. For they know his voice.
(John 10:5) And they will not follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.
*** (John 14:15-to-18) If you love Me, keep My commandments. [Word]
(John 14:16) And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, so that He may be with you forever,
(John 14:17) the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive because it does not see Him nor know Him. But you know Him, for He dwells with you and shall be in you.
(John 14:18) I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you.
*** (John 14:26) But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance, whatever I have said to you.
How can anyone… Who ‘Loves Jesus’… not want ‘Anything’ else… but “His Holy Word”…? Today there was a ‘chat’ about some false preacher, telling people they do not need to know God’s Word! She was upset and wanted to know… How anyone could follow that…? Simple Answer…?
*** (Matthew 15:14) Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
*** (2Peter 2:1-2) But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who secretly will bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction.
(2Pet 2:2) And many will follow their pernicious ways, and because of them the way of truth will be evil spoken of.
*** (Matthew 24:23-24-25) Then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ! Or, There! Do not believe it.
(Matt 24:24) For false Christs’ and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders; so much so that, if it were possible, they would deceive even the elect.
(Matt 24:25) Behold, I have told you beforehand.
Do you ‘Really’… “KNOW”… what you truly believe about God and His Word…? Can you defend ‘The Faith’… with verses from God’s Word…? Can you refute ‘False Teachings’… with God’s Word…? Why do you think God gave us His Holy Word… just to sit on our coffee tables… and show our friends… ‘We like the Bible?’ Absolutely “NOT”…! Do you know HE… called you to be His Soldier…? To defend “The Faith” = “The TRUE FAITH”… based on His Holy Word…?
*** (2Timothy 2:3-4-5) Therefore endure hardness, = as a good soldier = of Jesus Christ.
(2Tim 2:4) No one who wars [for Truth] = tangles with the affairs of this life, = that he may please Him [Jesus] = Who chose him = to be a [His] soldier.
(2Tim 2:5) And also if anyone competes, = he is not crowned [with eternal rewards] = unless he competes = lawfully. [according to the Word]
*** (Luke 18:8) I [Jesus] say to you that He [God] will avenge them speedily. Yet when the Son of Man comes, = shall He find = faith [True Biblical] = on the earth?
*** (Jude 1:3) Having made all haste to write to you about the common salvation, beloved, I had need = to write to you = to exhort you = to contend earnestly = for the faith = once delivered to the saints.
*** (Ephesians 6:17) And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God,
What is in… “Your Armory”…? What ‘weapons’ do you have to battle for “The Truth”…? Or do you just go on your merry way, thinking all is… “OK and God is in Control”…? Does a Soldier ever ‘stop’ carrying out the Orders of His or Her… “Commander in Chief = Christ Jesus”…? ‘Apathy’… is the tool of Satan and he appears to be effectively using in among those that… “Only Say”… ‘They Love Jesus’…?
**** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them, whether they will hear or whether they will forbear, for they are rebellious.
*** (1Thessalonians 5:21) Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
*** (Acts 17:11) And these = were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = ‘searched’ the Scriptures = daily = to see if those things = were so.
*** (Isaiah 8:20) To the Law = and to the testimony! = If = they do NOT speak according TO this Word, = it is because NO light = is in them.
***(Luke 16:31) And he said to him, If they = do NOT = hear Moses and the Prophets, = they will NOT = be persuaded, = even though one rose from the dead.
*** (Titus 3:10) A man that is a heretic after the first and second admonition reject;
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come, says the Lord Jehovah, that I will send a famine in the land; not a famine of bread nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the Words of Jehovah.
