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. Flee all cults that seek to control your lives as well, fellow believers! 1. The gospel cuts the hearts of the pre-chosen, which is the spiritual circumcision. This cutting must come before true repentance as the power turns men and women to Christ, showing them their unbelief in a painful, but blessed way. This regeneration (a true rebirth) always precedes true repentance and faith. (Acts 11:18, 2 Tim 2:25). The gospel message is the good news of Christ's death and resurrection for the elect.  When applied by the Holy Spirit, that message replaces the old heart with a new heart. The gospel saves without the need for preparation. (Acts 2, Romans 1:16-17). 2. No preparatory work of law is required. The gospel is all powerful. The Protestants (often called Calvinists, but were divided into Reformed and Lutheran) and Catholic chief theologian Augu

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. 

The New Covenant is not a Modification of the Old

  The New Covenant Is Not A Modification Of The Old Covenant.docx 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 1st Covenant...............Heb 8:7, 9:1 2nd Covenant........Heb 8:7, 10:1-9 Came by Moses.................Joh 1:17 Came by Christ.....Heb 8:6, 9:15 Law of God in STONE.....2Co 3:3 Law of God in HEART ..Heb 10:16 Law of MOSES........Act 13:38-39 Law of CHRIST.....Gal 6:2 Law of flesh...................Rom 7:5-6 Law of the SPIRIT.Rom 8:2 NOT of faith.......................

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 and a Better Way

I found this wonderful and concise explanation for all believers, but especially for Jewish believers who were raised under the law:  In Judaic Theology, four concepts are involved: 1) Adamic sin which is genetic or inheritted 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, individual sins were

Bible Dilemmas, Free Will and Pharisees

It may be helpful to deal with Bible dilemmas.  Election and a plane crash.  Infants in Hell.  Christ died for the sheep.  The new Pharisees are free willers.  The Gospel is not for sale.  The elect are elect even before they are saved.   Grace and Great Trinity scriptures.  Sleep isn't sleep.  Tongues and Prophesy were temporary. Natural Conscience does not save anyone. 1. Is God unfair choosing a few people to be saved? Well, say there is a plane crash. Most people die but a handful live. Aren't we happy that a handful lived? God chose who  lives and no one faults Him.  So the human race crashed in Adam. God has chosen a few to live and yet everyone is angry about that choosing. God is now somehow wrong for choosing when He did not have to save anyone! 2. An infant is raped and dies. A sovereign God plans all things. So how is that evil a fair representative of a just God? First, the rape and death show the power of evil in the world and that evil is really evil. It is disg

The Love of God; A Fifty Year Journey

The love of God in my life began 50 years ago. I was not looking for God. I had heard bad versions of the gospel multiple times prior to age 21.  But at that age of 21, God took pieces of the gospel I had heard and gave me an understanding of Godly faith through divine revelation. So when I was 21, not looking for God, I was taken over from above. My heart was cut. The true nature of my unbelief was exposed. I was alone in a house at the time. God did not ask me for permission to construct this surgery on my soul. My old heart was replaced by a new heart. I had nothing to do with it. God decided to change me heart compelling me to repent of my unbelief! So, I had no choice, I was falling even though I stood on solid ground. I had to express my need for the Savior as unbelief became very uncomfortable. Looking to Him I was given repentance which can only come through this regeneration. Being born again through the spiritual cutting of the heart came before my repentance and faith.

God Predestined But Holds Men Responsible

This is the NIV. I always compare translations because they all have flaws. The following is proof God predestined in Christ, yet holds man responsible for their fallen nature and their unbelief! God holds men responsible for their fallen nature and their unbelief even though they were born with that nature. JOHN 12: 37  Even after Jesus had performed so many signs ( A )  in their presence, they still would not believe in him.   38  This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet: “Lord, who has believed our message      and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” [ a ] ( B ) 39  For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere: 40  “He has blinded their eyes      and hardened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes,      nor understand with their hearts,      nor turn—and I would heal them.” [ b ] ( C ) 41  Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus’ glory ( D )  and spoke about him. ( E ) 42  Yet at the same
