Jesus Isn’t Enough

Jesus Isn't Enough

For a lot of ministers in our day, Jesus just isn’t enough. It all becomes clear when they give an evangelistic appeal to those who are lost. Jesus is simply not enough, so they must come up with all kinds of other unbiblical things to entice sinners or unbelievers to come and accept Christ to supposedly be saved and go to Heaven. This sickens me to my core.  Continue Reading…

Do You Really Want a God who is Just and Fair?

The Justice of God presents a huge problem for most people. What happens with a lot of Christian preachers is that they only ever talk about the things that will make them popular, sell books or make people happy. What has happened in the 21st century is that we have taken parts of God and focused on them so much, that we have almost totally forsaken the other attributes of God. We will say God is love. And we will stick to love and then anything that doesn’t look like what we think God’s love is like we either will not talk about or say its false all together.  Continue Reading…

Tools for the Task

HD-Title

As a young 21 year old kid I remember the first time I “got” the great commission. I read it and it clicked! The light bulb went on and I saw for the first time every believers responsibility to preach the gospel and reach the lost.

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. (Mark 16:15 NKJV)

We as the church of Christ are here for a purpose, we are here for a reason. We are here because God desires the salvation of all men. He is willing that none should perish, but that all should come to repentance. God has chosen us, the body of Christ to be the ones who bring the message of the good news to the people He desires to save.

Sometimes when we think of revival we think of the main preachers used during times and seasons of revival. Men of God such as Jonathan Edwards, Charles Finney, John Wesley, George Whitfield, Duncan Campbell and many others have been greatly used by God. But most of the revivals that have happened throughout time have not started with anyone who was well known at the time.

Faith That Moves Mountains HD_main

Is it not true that God is all powerful, totally sovereign and will do whatever He wants to do? The answer to all of those things is yes. The scriptures say this about God.

Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. (Psalms 147:5 NKJV)

Indeed before the day was, I am He; And there is no one who can deliver out of My hand; I work, and who will reverse it?” (Isaiah 43:13 NKJV)

But our God is in heaven; He does whatever He pleases. (Psalms 115:3 NKJV)

When it comes to our lives, do we even have a say in the matter? Can we limit what God does with our lives? Can we by our faith or unbelief really receive more or less from God? Does having faith in God really matter, or will He just sovereignly do all He wants in us and in our lives? These are the questions I set out to answer here. Continue Reading…

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.
