WHERE DID THE JUSTIFIED ISRAELITES GO AFTER CHRIST’S DEATH?

Since the Lord through His own death, burial, and resurrection from the dead successfully fulfilled the first mandate of the Davidic Covenant, (which mandate involved Him functioning as Israel’s Redeemer to provide redemption, including the issue of ‘ransoming them from the power of death and of the grave’), this made it so that the legal requirement no longer existed which had formerly consigned dead saints to be placed in the holding compartment of hell in the lower parts of the earth to await the outcome of God’s promised redemption. Once the first mandate of the Davidic Covenant had been fulfilled that former legal requirement of remanding saints to the lower parts of the earth became null and void as part of the spoils of Christ’s victory over sin, over...

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...

THE ADOPTION OF SONS

OUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST From the moment we trusted our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and placed our faith in what His blood accomplished by the cross, God the Father justified us and placed us into Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Eph 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, Eph 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. Eph 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the...

JUSTIFICATIONS AND SALVATIONS

When we study the word of truth and we come across the words “justify, just, justification”, or “save, saved, saving, salvation”, we can’t always assume that it means salvation from the debt and penalty of sins, or justification in the sight of God unto eternal life. In this study we are going to take a look at the different types of justifications and salvations in Israel’s program, as well as in this dispensation of gentile grace also. But before we do that, I would like to point to the fact that the main reason for this study is that in the church world, and especially in grace churches, there is a doctrine being taught that says that Israel was saved by faith plus works, and that we in this dispensation of gentile grace are saved, and justified by faith...
