Redeemed HD_main

Hebrews 9:12 Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.

Do we realized that we have been redeemed? What does being redeemed mean? It means: to buy or pay off, to buy back, to recover, to obtain the release or restoration of, as from captivity by paying a ransom.

This post is a follow up to the one I wrote with the sarcastic title that Pope Francis has unified Roman Catholics and Evangelicals together. You can read that post here: http://drewthomas.org/2014/01/27/pope-francis-unifies-roman-catholics-and-evangelicals-once-and-for-all/
Here is the full video that I will be discussing: Continue Reading…

Faith

One thing that I so appreciate about my spiritual foundation is the teaching I have recieved on faith. Rhema Bible College, where I attended Bible school, taught me many great truths on faith.

This post was inspired by brother Toks Adujewon from Nigeria. He preached a powerful message about faith recently at Winter Bible Seminar at Rhema Bible Church. You can listen to it here: Toks Adujewon’s Message on Faith

For I delivered to you first

The reason I worded the title the way I did was because of what I see in the body of Christ. On one side I see evangelists or preachers who do preach, who do proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, but who do not actively believe in God’s power do the miraculous as spoken of and seen all throughout the gospels and the book of Acts. The other side I see is the evangelist or preacher who puts so much of an emphasis on sign, miracles and wonders that they seem to forget about the gospel.

Vatican Pope

Has unification of Roman Catholics and the Evangelical Church really happened? To some people, it would seem like it.

I found out that Pope Francis addressed Kenneth Copeland’s southwest believers conference via a friend’s Facebook status who attended the conference. (I have been updated that I was incorrect about the conference. It was actually a ministers conference, not the Southwest believers convention. And it also was not a live video feed or something like that. It was pre-recorded from an iPhone from someone who works within the Catholic Church.)

The post was one of excitement and awe that the Pope addressed their conference through live video feed. The following comments were ones of similar joy and excitement over the fact that the Pope addressed them. Now I do not know what exactly he said, although I would like to, but what exactly he said is not the point here.

There are some doctrines of men in the church, or what is called the church, that need to be addressed in order to bring truth to error and to save people from eternal damnation. One of the ones I seem to come across every now and then is the idea that a man can be justified without being regenerated. There are many ways in saying this, such as a person can be a Christian but not a disciple, that a person can have Jesus as savior, but not Lord, ext. But the essence of what is sometimes being taught is this: a person can be made right in God’s sight, a child of God with all the wonderful benefits, on their way to Heaven, but yet they are never really changed on the inside and their lifestyle stays the same as it always was.  Continue Reading…

We all know and have heard of the great commission before. Jesus commanded us to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. We all know it is our duty to evangelize and share Jesus with the people around us. But sometimes we need to be stirred up to do so. We don’t naturally enjoy sharing the gospel, it must a supernatural empowerment in order for us to preach the gospel. Here I will give one of three things that will help us be bold in sharing Christ with others.  Continue Reading…

big vision

It is so refreshing when we are given new direction from God. It can be the most exciting time in a persons life when they first see what God has put them here to do. Having a vision for our lives is so important, in fact with out vision we cast of restraint and run wildly. Without purpose there is no point in living a disciplined life. But even when we have a great vision for ministry and for God’s purpose for us, it can be overwhelming when the greatness of the vision far outweighs our current resources. Continue Reading…

God Has a Plan HD_scripture

Unfortunately when we open our Bibles, it will not tell if you should marry a guy named Mark or a girl named Alicia. There is no 3rd Corinthians you can turn to that will tell you that you are called to be an evangelist. There are many gray areas in the word of God when it comes to our personal life. When it comes to God’s plans for us, God gives us many principles and guidelines to go by, but it is up to us to hear His voice as to the specific decisions that we make.

Here are 3 things to help us know God’s will for our lives:
