GODLINESS PT. 1~THINKING LIKE GOD DOES

Rom 1:8  First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. Rom 1:9  For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers; Rom 1:10  Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you. Rom 1:11  For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established; Rom 1:12  That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. Rom 1:13  Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit...

WAS CORNELIUS A KINGDOM SAINT?

Act 10:1  There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, Act 10:2  A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway. Act 10:3  He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. Act 10:4  And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.     Acts chapter 10 gives an introduction of a Gentile man named Cornelius, and as we can see in verse 2 he gave “much alms” to Israel, Cornelius and “his house” knew that Israel was God’s beloved nation. Cornelius understood...

UNDERSTANDING ISRAEL’S PROGRAM

  Gen 1:26  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Gen 1:27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Gen 1:28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.   God’s plan and purpose for Israel is to ‘take back’ dominion and rulership over this sin cursed world which was “delivered” unto Satan...

CONFESSION: THE MISUSE OF ROMANS 10:9

Rom 10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) Rom 10:7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; Rom 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. Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. The word confess means to “acknowledge” someone or something, and the word “confess,...

SUFFERING FOR CHRIST’S SAKE

1Co 4:6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. 1Co 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it? 1Co 4:8 Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you. 1Co 4:9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men. 1Co 4:10 We are fools for...

JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES AT YOUR DOOR?

While this is not a study about the history of the Jehovah’s witnesses, nor is it a study of their doctrine, for that I ask you to visit this site for information on the group: http://dougdoddsbg.com/religion/denominations/jehovah-witnesses-american-cult Charles Russell founded the group in 1876 with a few students, later the group would grow into millions. It is surprising to see that many people join something without getting background information into what they are placing their eternal faith into. Where we spend eternity should be an important issue with anyone, and making the wrong choices concerning life after our physical death is very dangerous. And after taking a look at their doctrine, and what they place their faith in; there is no salvation found...

MARK THEM WHICH CAUSE DIVISIONS!

Rom16:17Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. Phil.2:2Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. The word division means to part ways, divide or separate, today you have one church on one corner, and another one right across the street, with each one calling themselves something different from the next one, and preaching a doctrine that is also different from the other. Many today feel that there is nothing wrong with all the different denominations in the world...

PAUL, THE CHIEF OF SINNERS, OR THE CHIEF SINNER?

1Ti 1:11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust. 1Ti 1:12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; 1Ti 1:13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 1Ti 1:14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. 1Ti 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 1Ti 1:16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe...

REPENTANCE TO ISRAEL

Matthew 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: 9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: 12 Whose fan is in his hand,...

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER?

DOES GOD ONLY ANSWER PRAYERS ON CERTAIN DAYS?   Rom 8:18  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Rom 8:22  For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. Rom 8:23  And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. Rom 8:24  For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? Rom 8:25  But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. Rom 8:26  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we...
