Summary of Gospel and Christian Doctrine

This list of crucial Christian doctrine is not every crucial doctrine but is enough to separate the believer from the false churches.  Three pillars of Christian doctrine:  1. Christ is God along with the Father and Spirit. Christ's righteousness is God's gift to those saved. 2. The law of Moses cannot save people. Only the gospel can save. The law of Moses is external to the heart. It is good, but acts as a curse on mankind as only Jesus could keep it. 3. The true Christian is saved by predestination, not at all by free will. -----‐---------------------- Preserve the blessing in Christ: A. Flee the Denominations. Flee Sacralist religion. B. Flee all cults that seek to control your lives as well, fellow believers!  C. Flee those who teach Christ was begotten in heaven. He was only begotten on earth, being called the Son after He was born and then begotten at the Resurrection. Christ was the eternal Word with no beginning in heaven. See John 1:1 Luke 1:34 and Acts 13:33. D. And

God said Jesus was God.

 God said Jesus was God. Only God can be worshipped. He said all the angels would worship Jesus. (Hebrews 1:6). In the Revelation, chapters 21 and 22, God reveals to John that the Lamb of God ruled with the Father from the throne of God with the Holy Spirit issuing from the throne of God. Three distinct persons, one God, one godly throne.  As far as the Holy Spirit being a person, we must look at John 16:13. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. The Lamb even provides His own eternal lamp to light the heavenly city, spiritual Jerusalem. Before He came to earth Jesus was the Word, with God and was God. John chapter 1. After He was glorified (John 17:5), Jesus is seen in the book of Revelation as being exalted as the Word (Logos) once again. He on

Christ Is the Christian Sabbath

 Saturday is not the Christian Sabbath. Sunday is not the Christian Sabbath. Jesus Christ is the Christian Sabbath. The Apostle Paul says the elements play no part in the Spiritual New Covenant.  He says that it is not about what you eat or drink or about Sabbath Days. Yes Christ came in the flesh. God walked on the earth as a man while God was in heaven and the Holy Spirit was in Him and was going to be sent as another advocate to the disciples. (John Chapter 14.).  But Christ walked on the earth to fulfill the law of Moses. And His resurrection abolished the law of Moses. (Eph 2:15) With the abolition of those elemental rules, the Sabbath can no longer be just a day.  Paul said, in Colossians 2:16-17: Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. NiV So, Paul is saying that the body of believers is of Christ. He is our rest. We read in Hebre

The Harlot and the Woman in Rev. 12

Revelation 12 woman was Jerusalem. The prophets died there. But, some say it is possible the Harlot of Revelation 17 is physical Rome. It destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD.  I am not certain about Rome because the language of the prophets could point to Jerusalem as being the harlot. The following sounds like it could be Jerusalem:  Keep in mind though that the book of Revelation is primarily about the ultimate victory of the Word (Logos) also revealed as the Lamb who is with the Almighty, the temple of the heavenly Jerusalem. In Revelation, the Lamb is God and is with God. See John 1. But the second theme of Revelation is the destruction of physical Israel which was centered around 70 AD. We have to allow for the possibility that Revelation 17 refers to Jerusalem. Revelation 17:3-4 Now the woman was dressed in purple and SCARLET clothing, and DECKED WITH GOLD, PRECIOUS STONES, and pearls. She held in her hand a GOLDEN CUP filled with detestable things and unclean things from her sexual imm

Hell Is Terrifying

Image
 This is from the internet. It is from a guy named Watkins from Grand Valley State University. I view Universities as being without the Spirit. University scholarship can inform us, but universities exist to make money. This peddling of the gospel is not authorized by God according to Paul. 2 Cor 2:17. However, the scriptures have been pulled together to show the serious frightening place of eternal abode of the unbelievers. Few are saved. Most are lost. This had no copyright.  So I am posting it to assist believers. Is the heat of the physical earth hell? I am not sure. The lake of fire will have to be big enough to contain the souls of maybe 50 billion people, all those who have lived on the earth without being chosen in Christ. But clearly hell is within the earth but may be entirely spiritual. Anyway, Christ descended into hell to preach as Jonah was in the whale. 1 Peter 4:9 and Eph 4:6 both confirm Christ's descent into hell to triumphantly preach the gospel to those who had

Jacob and Esau and Predestination

 Heb 12:16 See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. NIV  So we see that Esau was godless after all. This verifies that Paul was talking about predestination to eternal life in Romans chapter 9. He wasn't talking about just the positioning of blessings. He was talking about Jacob being chosen for eternal life and Esau being chosen for eternal damnation. Esau was hated from and for all eternity. This is a sobering reality. Many are called and few are chosen for eternal life.  We have had billions upon billions of human beings born since the beginning in Adam. Yet if a few million are saved that could prove to be a generous number!   I am telling you with Jewish DNA the truth like John the Baptist. Few are saved at this moment in history. The Gentiles have been called for 2000 years with many called. Luke 21:24  Now Jews and those with Jewish DNA are being called. Rom chapter 11. This is within t

You Are Fired, Donald Trump

Donald Trump was taken down by God. The virus was sent to take him down. Without the virus, Trump would have been an easy winner.  Donald Trump was a racist who allowed racism to come out from folks who were never emboldened before. Racism has always existed in America, but progress toward snuffing it out was turned upside down by Donald Trump, a man who vexed many. He was hurtful in separating children from parents at the border. He hurt Puerto Rico after the massive hurricane. He didn't really fight the Corona Virus.  But Trump also was frenetic. He was the opposite of calm. His clown show simply wore people out. Biden is a moderate. Let's hope he continues that steady calming moderation.  Malachi 3:5-6 clearly shows God opposes taking away justice for foreigners, God opposes those who withhold wages for workers and those who have no compassion for widows and orphans. Donald Trump has failed all of these commands.  The Old Covenant does not apply to physical nations by law as

The New Covenant is not a Modification of the Old

  The New Covenant Is Not A Modification Of The Old Covenant. Infant baptism was a false New Covenant version of Old Covenant Circumcision. But the Covenants are different. Baptism is now for believers only.  Predestination is true but Protestant sacralism is not. The New Covenant is only for believers, not for unbelieving children! The New Law of Christ is superior to the law of Moses because it saves.  The Protestants never acknowledged that the New is superior to the Old. The NC saves. The OC did not. The elect in the Old were saved by grace, not by the law of Moses! See this: drive.google.com The New Covenant Is Not A Modification Of The Old Covenant Lest anyone should seriously entertain the notion that the New Covenant is in harmony with the Old Covenant or that it is a modification of the Old Testament or that it is still in force today, consider the following Scriptures: Old Mosaic Covenant New Spiritual Covenant OLD Cov........................2Co 3:14 NEW Covenant.....2Co 3:6

Trump Mocks God with Covid-19

 Donald Trump is testing and mocking God by saying he is strong and the Covid-19 he caught, is weak. Trump has not, as of this writing, defeated the virus. He also has put photographers and military men at the White House in danger.  The Coronavirus, Covid, came from God. The book of Revelation speaks to vials and plagues being poured out upon the earth. For any world leader to make fun of God, as if that leader was stronger than God, is a serious error in judgement.  Most people, even those who are not Christians, show some appreciation and gratitude for surviving Covid-19. Donald Trump is bragging about surviving Covid, even though he is not out of the woods. Those who are arrogant will face trouble in this world. Donald Trump is headed for trouble from on High. Could he change, and help others take Covid seriously. I don't think so. The world is like a media event to him, and his image is all that matters. Meanwhile, those who do not receive his high level treatment may suffer f

The Torah Sacrifice But a Better Way

I found this wonderful and concise explanation for all believers, but especially for Jewish believers who were raised under the law. I comment later:  In Judaic Theology, four concepts are involved: 1) Adamic sin which is genetic or inherited 2) individual sins which we commit ourselves 3) Forgiveness of sins 4) Ratification of forgiveness Every man begotten of a human father inherits the sin of Adam, for which we all suffer death. Everyman begotten of man, commits individual sins, for which there are commensurate punishment or.penalties. Now, because there is such a concept as sin in the Law of Moses the concept of forgivesness of sins also emerged. Yet, for every sin, whether Adamic or individual, after penitence and repentance, the forgiveness must needs be ratified by the "shedding of blood."  Without the use of blood to ratify forgiveness, ones sins are retained intact. But with the use of blood, it is ratified that our sins are forgiven. Thus, in the Old Covenant, indiv
