Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So

Preacher's Open Concern that This Generation Is Cheated When It Comes to Salvation (1) Because of the Deplorable Effects of the Snare of "Easy Believe-ism" and (2) Because of the Relative Paucity of the Witness of Clear-Cut Testimonies from People We Know and Rub Shoulders With. Several Testimonies at End of Service (Alas With No … Continue reading Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So

JESUS HIDDEN IN THE NAME OF GOD

The Agapegeek Blog

(Ver 1.0) This will be a short lesson for our readers that do not have a lot of time to study the Bible. However, this will be a very important lesson about a hidden picture of the work of God in Jesus found in one of His most popular Old Covenant names.  What we discover in the Gospels is Jesus trying to reach the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Matthew 15:24). This was one way that God was trying to turn the natural nation of Israel back to knowing Him. This teaches us a lot about the heart of God to be LOVE! The heart, and Spirit of God who is LOVE (1 John 4:8), had continually tried to turn their hearts of His old covenant people back to Him, over and over!

When we discover that He placed clues to all of our…

The Top 10 Enemies To Salvation! Why People Don’t Get Saved!

The Agapegeek Blog

(Ver 1.1)  There are a countless number of enemies to salvation.  I want to address the Bible reasons for why people do not get saved.  Maybe you did not realize it, but salvation is not automatic.  Just because God wants you to be saved, does not mean you are saved.  If you read the Bible and study it very carefully you will discover that whatever God has freely given to man, man is required to do something to enjoy it.  So salvation is a partnership agreement between you and God.  God initiated salvation by His grace and you receive it by your faith.  I hope that you understand that concept because it is a spiritual law and is a pattern for how things work in the Bible from cover to cover.

Act 28:28  Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and

Understanding Spiritual Warfare! The Battle within and the Battle without!

 In Revelation 1:162:1619:15 and 19:21 Jesus is described as having a sword coming from His mouth that He uses to eliminate those that oppose Him in the end of the world.  We can clearly understand that this symbolic sword represents the Words of God being spoken.  To take the Sword of the Spirit in our armor means to speak what God has written in His book called the Bible.  When you speak the Word of God your words carry the same power as if God spoke them.  For example, if someone is coming against you in an attack, you could say “No weapon formed against me will prosper” (Isa 54:17).  This is putting the Word of God in your mouth to counter what Satan is trying to do against you.  You do not go up and say this to a human being, remember they are not your problem.  You say this in the privacy of your home to Satan who is the root cause of the attack.  Do you understand this?

(Ver 1.3)  This is “Part 1” in a series of lessons on the subject of “Spiritual Warfare”.  This is a new subject for me and a lesson designed for the benefit of those who have been attacked by Satan and do not understand why it has occurred or what to do about it to keep it from happeing again.   Many new Christians are immediately attacked and persecuted because Satan wants to stop God’s Word from developing in their spirits and becoming mature and fruitful.  New Christians are the most vulnerable and usually do not know what to do about this and do not generally understand why God even allows this to even happen to them.  There are many complex factors involved in understanding this problem and I will attempt to at least give you an overview of what is happening in the spiritual realm and why it can occur and what you can…

God’s Gift of Salvation

Wag 'n Bietjie

We are all going to die someday. Where will you go when you die? The Bible teaches us how we can know for sure that when we die we will go to heaven. There are 4 things we must know to be able to go to heaven when we die.

1. We are sinners. As the Bible says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23). Sin is falling short of God’s perfection. Everyone has sinned many times in life. We have all lied, or stolen, or cheated, or done something wrong at some time in our lives. “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one” (Rom. 3:10).

2. We deserve Hell. Realize that there is a punishment for being a sinner, and that punishment is death. “For the wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23). Not only a physical death…
