I DON’T WANT TO MISS HEAVEN! (VII)

 HeavenJohn316

(Continued from part 6)

(7)          The reality on the scriptural ground is that only this same Jesus has the capability of the competence to keep us in this state of Godly righteousness. We have the same life as Jesus for we are, in the strictest sense, in this righteous journey together for it says that: “Christ, who is our life.” Amen.

1John 3:9, “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” ‘Is born’ comes twice and this ‘birth’ is not in the aorist. A habitual phenomenon is what it is. God, in this dispensation of grace, is in the business of upholding individual’s spiritual rejuvenation.

the body of christ

Whoever gets born of His divine Being ceases to be labelled a sinner. The same can commit sins though. When or if he does 1John 1:9 takes care of his demeaning act. This means that it is not only when you prayed for the salvation that you are covered. Jesus continues, as the Advocate you never solicited for, to keep your righteousness intact. Amen! When or if you find yourself being spiritually distracted by a certain gravitational pull towards an untoward sinfulness I recommend you go for a cleansing deliverance.

You will, indubitably, lose a crown or crowns for a persistent sinfulness.

The Church (most of its leadership) is not doing well by keeping the scriptural truism from the laity. So many scriptural anomalies got ingested in the unsuspecting laity during the millennia of the hegemony of Catholicism.

i've fought the good fight

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith

Why would Paul write, I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing in 2Timothy 4:7 and verse 8? It is simply because Jesus stated categorically in John 10:27 & 28 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

The word ‘never’ has three meanings (i) ou me (ou may’) adv. ‘a double negative strengthening the denial, “not at all”’ (ii) eis (eis) prep 1. to or into (indicating the point reached or entered), of place, time 2. (figuratively) to or into a purpose (result, etc.), and (iii) aion (ai-own’) 1. (properly) an age 2. (by extension) perpetuity (also past) 3. (by implication) the world 4. (specially, Jewish) a Messianic period (present or future).’ And with the definition of ‘perish’ called in the Greek: apollumi (ap-ol’-loo-mee) ‘1. to destroy fully 2. (reflexively) to perish, or lose.’

No true born again Christian, according to Jesus’ asseveration of John 10:27-28, will ever head towards hell, unless Jesus is a liar! My five-part post titled, ”WHY GO ARMINIANISTIC SOTERIOLOGY” http://wp.me/p5iz2f-1H  16 Mar 2015  explores in details why no true born again person will ever go to hell, please do read it. The perceived “loss of salvation” is not an apostolic teaching!

john-3-16

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. The soteriological act of this verse is the word ‘believeth’ and that is all that is required to be God’s child forever. Faith. John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. In order not to be condemned, Jesus tells you to believe Him and receive Him as your Lord and Saviour. That is all. He does the rest, to put you at eternal rest. Amen!

born_again-how

Good question!

Get born again by praying this prayer with all your heart and truthfully: Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sins and You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord, and I receive Him as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory, Amen.                       (Concluded)

CAN GOD WALK INTO AN AMBUSH? (three)

(…continued from part 2)

Sinfulness is quite mysterious. Unseen hand goads you into adventurous evil. The deceiver makes you enjoy the immorality. For unknown reason you want to continue in it! Astounding!

Ghoulish slaughter of sacrificial scapegoats is believed to be the order on the altars of Freemasonry and the Illuminati. Voodooism and its attendant dreadful secrecy cut across Africa and South America. Baal worship, which drew God’s ire to the point of giving them up for destruction, has received a modern touch. Kabbalah is the choice of Jewry, God’s own chosen nation. Governments are cultic. Businesses belong to the initiates alone. The fear of the Most High, to them, is nil. Bad.

Those who, like Paul, will, with all sincerity of their knowledge filled hearts, say, “…for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day;” (of 2 Timothy 1:12) do understand who and what God is. It is evidently crystal that it is impossible to waylay God. Nothing, absolutely, takes Him by surprise. Is He not the Omniscient? Let us read some scriptural truisms from Isaiah 40:12-25. Verse 12, “Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?” In the hollow of his hand, and not even both hands? Well I understand that Disney of Hollywood will, effortlessly, put it on the silver screen, but certainly not without the gimmicks of cinematography and the dexterity of seasoned acting, however.

Verses 13 and 14 rhetorically require answers concerning His knowledge. If verse 15 makes the a categorical “Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing;” and that of 16 “And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering;” beams great lights on God’s majestic preeminence. Lebanon is famed for the best trees. Put the trees and all the expensive animals of Lebanon together and it will be too insufficient to serve as a proper sacrifice before His supreme Majesty, says the language divinely given to the historian and prophet Isaiah. Driving the truth home is the 17th “All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.” It is now apropos for another rhetorical question of the 18th “To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?”  The 19th and the 20th both serve as an intimation of the folly of any comparison with the Most High.

One glaring and immutable truth I have learnt about God is that any moment He approaches with a question there is never an answer that will favour the respondent. So, what we read in verse 21, “Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?” actually prepares the sober minded one for: “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: 23. That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity;” the 22nd & 23rd verses to be well digested. This is, so that the effusive 24th, “Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble:” having been understood, there cannot arise any iota of the slightest misconception at any given moment when we read Isaiah 40 of the 25th verse, “To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One?” I heard someone whisper, “It’s a rhetoric question, needing no answer,” and to which I say, “Amen!”       (Concluded)
