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…by
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.by
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.by
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…by
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.by
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…
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 Faithby
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.by
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.by
