How much of the bible do we really know? Is what we know the actual truth or do we think it is truth. When someone tells you something about the bible do you go and look it up yourself? Do we go beyond what our church, pastor or friend tells us about the bible?
Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
John 6:45 It is written in the prophets, ‘And they will all be taught of God.’ Everyone who has listened to and learned from the Father, comes to Me.
Philippians 4:9 The things which you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things [in daily life], and the God [who is the source] of peace and well-being will be with you.
There is a lot written about fools in the Bible. Proverbs 13:20 says, “He that walks with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”
And Proverbs 1:22 asks, “How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? and the scoffers delight in their scoffing, and fools hate knowledge?”
Proverbs 16:22 says, “Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that has it: but the instruction of fools is folly.”
Ecclesiastes 7:5 tells us, “It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.”
The Bible is down on fools. With that as a backdrop, it is amazing how society tolerates foolishness brought on by fools. Of course, many of them are well educated, but that doesn’t make them wise. There are so many headlines in the news these days about crazy stuff… read more
Ephesians 6:14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,
In Greek the word truth means – not merely truth as spoken truth of idea, reality, sincerity truth in the moral sphere, divine truth revealed to man (bible hub) —-> In the Greek culture the word truth (Alethea) was synonymous for reality as the opposite of illusion (HELPS – Word-studies)
To a believer the word of God is their reality. God’s word will continue to come to pass as all the prophecies have in the bible. God does not need mankind to validate He is the Truth. God’s Truth is validated in the hearts of believers…. read more
WikiLeaks has promised 2017 will be an even bigger year for leaks than 2016, which saw the whistleblowing site publish thousands of documents exposing US political secrets, covert trade deals and private communications from global leaders.
“If you thought 2016 was a big WikiLeaks year, 2017 will blow you away,”WikiLeaks tweeted on Monday, giving no hints as to what may be in store.
The tweet also included a link to its website’s donation page so people can help the site “prepare for the showdown.”… [read more]
One congregation member popped up. Then another. Then another. Each walked out, “kinda shaking their heads,” because Pastor T. L. Bates refused to compromise the Word of God.
The Assemblies of God Pastor was preaching on “Fire Starters,” according to TRUNews, and addressing one of the most hot-button issues facing the Church community today: Homosexuality.
“I used Elijah as the example of a ‘Fire Starter,’ and our need to raise up a new generation of ‘Fire Starters’ who would not be afraid to confront false religions (like Islam) and corrupt culture,” Bates tells Charisma News. “Anyone (comedians, LGBT community, media) can say anything negative about Christianity and there are no repercussions for their actions or their words. But as soon as a Christian preaches or speaks against the false religion of Islam or against the agenda of the LGBT community and the transgender movement and their demands for us to make accommodations for and accept their lifestyle and agenda—then we face persecution. We are called intolerant and told that we are not being politically correct….. [read more]
