Is 1 John 1 for Believers or Unbelievers?

Originally posted on Escape to Reality:
“Why do you assume that the first chapter of first John is addressed to unbelievers?” This question was put to me by a friend after reading my recent post on 1 John 1:9. Judging by some of the comments that have come up in various discussion threads, it’s a…

Fear and trembling revisited.

Hey guys the term “fear and trembling” means awe and worship. Not that God is going to take his salvation away from you. Jeremiah 33:9 English Standard Version And this city shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all the nations of the earth who shall hear of…

Does sin separate God from you anymore?

A lot of people quote you Isaiah 59:1-2 and tell you that sin will separate from God even after you have become a Christian. Here’s what it says: Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your…

The Lordship of Jesus and our salvation

Dear friends, This is a follow-up note to “Jesus is Lord” note, I put up a few weeks ago. You can find it here: https://hischarisisenough.wordpress.com/2013/08/04/what-does-jesus-is-lord-actually-mean/ Its just that I discover so much more to this I just had to write a brand new piece on this subject. There are many who teach that only few make…

What does “Jesus is Lord” actually mean?

This note is dedicated to many who condemn themselves who find themselves, unable to continue the Christian faith failing to live up to the “standards of “biblical” Christianity. Many people claimed that unless Jesus is your Lord in every area, you are not saved. They argue you have to confess “Jesus is Lord” and thus…

What it means to be “seated with Christ.”

Dear friends, I just wanted to share the notes of today’s message with you on my thoughts on Ephesians with you. As I prepared the notes, I am overwhelmed with how little we actually spend our mind thinking of what it means to be seated in Christ. This one thought truly was impressed upon my…

Hebrews 1: It’s direct now!

Dear friends, I noticed that many teach Hebrews chapter 1 being Jesus is sovereign or that he is superior to the angels. I verily believe it is a merely a preamble to a more important message. Let us see how Hebrews 1 begin. “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times…

“All the lonely people; Where do they all come from?”

In 1966 a song “Eleanor Rigby” was recorded by Paul McCartney of The Beatles. The song gave the band a shift to how people viewed them as just a young  rockers to be taking more serious in their music. The song hit a reality with the lines “All the lonely people; Where do they all…

Removing the poverty mentality from the Gospel.

Myths about Poverty Mentality. So often, we are told that Christians should have a mentality that wealth is not a good thing; that the gospel is not something that should be linked to prosperity. Yet I see the very same people who make such comments driving big cars and living in big houses. Don’t get…

You can’t handle the truth!

Romans 1 18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen,…

Did the Law exist before the 10 commandments were given?

“Abraham didn’t exist before the Law. The Law was in existence from the Garden of Eden, though at that time there was only ONE Law: Don’t eat from the forbidden tree. Other Laws were added as needed and passed down orally. For instance: Yudah was born and died well before the Law was written down…

Did God write the 10 commandments in your heart?

It is pertinent to note that Christians are divided in their understanding of whether the believer is bound by the 10 commandments or not. Also much of these arguments centre themselves with the understanding that God “has written his laws in our hearts”. One group I know says that Christians are the Ark of the…

Can a Christian who has “fallen away” be saved? A new look at Hebrews 6

Hebrews 6 4 It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age 6 and who have fallen[c] away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all…

Why are some people not in heaven?

This note is a realization of an earlier article. So the reproduction of some parts of an article is necessary. What did the fall of man do to him? God disallowed man to eat from the tree of life. I always thought God meant it as a punishment. Until I saw the word “take also”. Dear friends,…

“With pleasure”, God.

Philippians 2:12-13 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. Dear friends, Often we equate the above verse as…
