Is Ahmadinejad always the bad guy? Are the Muslims always the bad guys? Is Netanyahu always the good guy? Are the Israelis always the good guys? Have we been deceived into fighting Israel’s wars?
This is an excellent explanation of the true gospel!
The Saudi’s evidently offered to assist the US in defeating ISIS, but Obama turned them down. He wouldn’t do that, would he? Wouldn’t that be treason? Let’s find out what a Saudi advisor says….
I’m alarmed at how many preachers are preaching that you have to “repent of your sins” or “turn from your sins” before you can be saved. Ephesians 2:8 tells us: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God”. And the gospel is encapsulated in I Corinthians 15:3 & 4: “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” So that is what we are to believe in order to receive God’s GIFT of everlasting life. When we try to add ANYTHING to what Jesus has already done for us, it is as filthy rags to God.
Remember the account of the Samaritan woman at the well? Jesus knew she was living with a man who wasn’t her husband, and that she had had 5 husbands, and I suspect they had not all died, making her an adulteress four times over. Knowing this, did he say, “If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have moved away from your live-in boyfriend, ceased all other sin, and asked of him, and he would have given thee living water”? No, he said, “If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.”
Some say that we must “repent of all our sins” (not in the Bible anywhere) before we can be saved. They say that doing so isn’t works. Let’s see what God says. Jonah 3:10 tells us: “And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way…”. Seems pretty clear that God considers turning from sin to be works.
Jesus did all the work. When we try to add to that we offend him. If your earthly father gave you an automobile when you were emancipated, no strings attached, and you said, “Dad, I’m going to pay you back every cent!” would your father have been hurt? offended? I think so.That’s not the best analogy, but it will do for my point. Jesus suffered horribly when he was beaten, scourged, and hung on the cross. He suffered as any man would. Additionally, He took on the burden of ALL sin, for ALL mankind, for ALL time. He suffered, bled and died so you wouldn’t have to. There’s nothing we can do to add to that.
Should we sin all the more so grace can abound? God forbid! We, as SAVED Christians should do good works to demonstrate the mercy and love God has for us.
Did Jesus really look like any of these pictures?
You see them everywhere. Churches have them on their walls, Christians put them up in their homes. But did Jesus look anything like them?
In the New Testament, in 1 Corinthians 11:14, the Bible says, “Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?”
Here’s the context of the of the chapter:
“Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.”
Looking at the full context, it’s apparent that a man’s (or woman’s) head being covered means the hair is long. If it is a shame for a man to have long hair, would Jesus have had long hair?
So where did this depiction of Jesus Christ with long hair come from? If you do a Google search on the name “Sananda”, you’ll see the VERY SAME PICTURES as those you see when you Google Jesus! Who is Sananda? He is a so-called “Ascended Master”, a demon entity channeled by “New Age” practitioners.
What should we learn or do about this? Take down your pictures of so-called Jesus. That’s not Him. We don’t know what he looks like, but for those of us who are saved by His blood, one day we will see Him as He is, and that, at least as far as I’m concerned, is soon enough to know what He looks like. I want to see the real Jesus.
