GOD DOES NOT LIE

Remember, God does not lie. He is obligated by His own word to fulfill it. In reference to the end days He says, “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should ...

The Coming Of The King

 It was in the fourteenth generation after the captivity, in the days of Herod the Terrible, that the Christ arrived in Judea. The land and its inhabitants were burdened with Roman taxes and oppressed with Herod’s soldiers. The injustices of the cruel emperors had enslaved them.They saw themselves no different from the many others that had gone before them, another nameless generation that would grovel and fade and pass away, like the field grass that grew on the ground they ...

Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People? – PART 8

Karma As A Way Of Life

For those caught up in the pursuit having good things happen to them by doing good things for others, and wanting to feel good and be emotionally satisfied, the notion of Karma, at first glance, appears to be the ticket. It lets us control the positive experiences we will have in the future by teaching us to do nice things now. Although this has the potential for shifting the world into a more ...

Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People? – PART 5

God Plus Me

Many people do not consider the possibility of spiritual warfare as a valid premise in explaining things that happen to them in their world. But, if we refuse to acknowledge the battle between God and Satan as a fundamental fact, then nothing that happens in life or its constant onslaught of problems and troubles makes any sense.

 

If we refuse to put the Devil into the equation we will be tempted to call God unjust and cruel. If all ...

To Christmas Or Not To Christmas PART 3

Let us “be diligent to present ourselves approved to God, a worker that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth,” (II Tim. 3:15). There are some things that are innately evil, and dedicated to the purposes of evil. These are clearly forbidden by God in His Word and are not to be entertained or tolerated by the believer. Idolatry, witchcraft, sexual perversions are just a few of the things forbidden. For a complete list of ...

To Christmas Or Not To Christmas PART 2

And what if the rules change? — which the Enemy also does, just to mix it up a little.  When I was a girl I grew up devoutly religious. There were rules for everything. We were told that eating “meat” on Friday was a mortal sin. I never questioned why God would make such a rule. It was a rule. So, I never ate meat on Fridays for fear of going to hell when I died.

 

When I became a young ...

To Christmas Or Not To Christmas – That Is The Question

Dear Friends of Jesus,  Thank you for taking a few moments to read this.

 

In recent years we have battled to keep Christ in Christmas, determined not to switch out greetings of “Merry Christmas” for “Happy Holidays”. Now we are faced with a new dilemma: Is Christmas really a time when Christians should be celebrating the birth of Jesus, or is it just another pagan holiday dressed up to look like something good that we would do well to avoid?

The Anatomy of Bitterness Against God

Why is life so “unfair”? Why are so many things in life, “just wrong”!? Why do the bad things often seem to out weigh the good?  And, how can a “good God” let all these bad things keep happening; like injustice and unanswered prayers and abused children? When nothing is right or fair, it just makes it all the harder to believe that God is good and that things can get better.

 

The issue of believing ...

Putting The Devil Back Into The Equation

As we have eluded to in parts 1 and 2, to make any sense out of the senseless things that happen to people, we must put the Devil back into the equation. For too many generations the Enemy has tried to obscure himself and his doings in the affairs of mankind even to the point of making it offensive to speak of him. He has used humans to do his dirty work in promoting ...

Free Will and The Great Deception

I will digress here for a few moments to set up the back story on sin:

This is exactly what Eve said when God asked her what happened in the garden. She said “the Serpent deceived me, and I ate”, (Genesis 3:13). What she answered was absolutely true, though at the time of her being seduced to eat the fruit, she had no clue that she was being tricked. And though she did Continue Reading →
