There Is Only One Chosen One

There is only one Chosen One. On the heals of Donald Trump accepting and retweeting a tweet that said he was the Second Coming to Israel, we have Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, saying Trump is the Chosen One. This was clearly a religious reference. But the author of Psalms says otherwise in Chapter 2 in the NIV translation. The Psalmist even warns the leaders of the world want to throw off God, but God laughs in the heavens: 2  Why are the nations so shaken up and the people planning foolish things?  2  The kings of the earth stand in a line ready to fight, and all the leaders are against the Lord and against His Chosen One.  3  They say, “Let us break their chains and throw them away from us.” 4  He Who sits in the heavens laughs. The Lord makes fun of them.  5  Then He will speak to them in His anger and make them afraid, saying,  6  “But as for Me, I have set My King on Zion, My holy mountain.”  7  I will make known the words of the Lord. He said to Me, “You are My So

If We Make Homelessness a Crime We are Sodom

Many US cities, including Las Vegas and Los Angeles, are making homelessness a crime. This is very bad news. Sodom was destroyed because, as Ezekiel said in chapter 16: 48 As surely as I live, declares the Lord GOD, your sister Sodom and her daughters never did as you and your daughters have done.  49 Nowthis was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed, and complacent; they did not help the poor and needy.  50 Thus they were haughty and committed abominations before Me, and when I saw this, I removed them.… Making homelessness a crime is an abomination. People who are homeless often want to sleep outside. They do not want to listen to some false free will religious sermon as they seek shelter. Forcing anyone to listen to a sermon is simply a violation of freedom of religion. Violations of freedom of speech come when these people are criminalized for sleeping on public streets.  Now we see the possibility of Donald Trump locking home

Seared Consciences: Catholics and Gnostics

1 Timothy 4:1-3 speaks to the issue of seared consciences. Men have fallen away from the faith forbidding certain foods and marriage. Both the Catholics and the Gnostics, who believe Christ was never come in the flesh, perpetuate these doctrines. 1 John 4:2-3 rejects those Gnostics who reject that Christ came in the flesh. This general view that gnosticism holds, that the elements are bad, is a the root of the Timothy passage above as well. As I say, the men who did these evil deeds where Catholics and Gnostics. The Catholics forbade their priests to marry. Of course we know that all Christians are priests before God so the Catholics compound their errors. See 1 Peter 2:5. Paul spoke of a falling away soon after the early church. 2 Thess 2:3-4 speaks to the falling away and the coming of the man of perdition. I believe that whoever that man was, it happened in the time of the early church, between 60 AD and 135 AD. I cannot say who this person was. But it is not a future person. B

Christ Would Have Died for One Person

The Lord Jesus Christ would have died for one person. This incredible truth is manifested in Matthew chapter 18. Christ would be as the shepherd. Leaving the 99 other sheep in the fold to walk hills to find the one missing sheep! Mt 18:12:14 (NIV) teaches: 12  “What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?   13  And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.   14  In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish. Certainly, Christ would have died for one! The love of God is beyond understanding but shows up as a gift in the hearts of the elect. Believe to the end!

Do I Feel Guilt for Those Not Saved?

Many people feel guilty if they are saved from a plane crash or from the Holocaust, when most are not saved from the terrible events. So, am I guilty being saved when those who are left behind are unsaved in large numbers? Yes, I do experience  a sorrow, maybe not guilt. My heart breaks at the Holocaust victims who are not saved. They have way more Jewish DNA than I do. They could have been included in the Romans 11 grafting of the original branches onto the Olive Tree. But I don't see that happening. I hurt over any family members who would pass on without Christ! I am very aware that the Holocaust victims were born prior to 1948, and I, who am elect in Christ, was born in 1949, just one year after the sign of God's peace with the elect Jews was established. (Luke 21:24) The nation of Israel is only a sign that the elect Gentiles have all been saved, not holy in any Dispensationalist way. Read this blog for the Truth about Israel. My heart breaks for these survivors

New Covenant Theology, Both Real and Fake

Clearly, New Covenant Doctrine has been abused by many New Covenant theologians. This little movement of mostly Gentile adherents (Many called Reformed Baptists) has never broken away from Protestantism and/or Anabaptism. But I have broken away. The problem is simple. I personally believe money may be a strong motivator, but it also is that NCT theologians simply cannot discern that law preparation is a false gospel! They refuse to separate from something that does not seem to be important to them. Yet for one called through the gospel, it is the difference between eternal life and eternal separation from God! I have only fellowship with the 1646 First London Baptists by the words they left of true faith. I stand with them. I do not seek to make a dime off the gospel. But it seems that both money and needy hearts bring the NCT movement together. Yet the truth is not taught. If anything these imposters accept or gravitate toward the 1689 Second Baptist Confession, which is a fa
