SORT BY Relevancy
It is all about the event that none of His followers wanted to see, and He Himself asked to avoid. Yet it is the most precious event in world history:the gift of God's Son.
How odd that we celebrate what we hoped would never happened, and still put lesser events before it, when there is nothing that ever mattered more.
While reviewing the Book of Jude, the thought came that so little is much different than many believe. After stopping by Genesis, I found myself in Ecclesiastes, where Solomon confirmed "there is no new thing under the sun.
We have mistaken imagination for change, when those imaginings remain as evil as they were in Genesis 6, and all of man's imaginings have created nothing that did not exist before, but have only rearranged elements of the creation over which God gave him dominion.
The sameness of life, of every man's struggle, of each person's final destination options can weary anyone of living, which is exactly what I believe God intended. Part of our resistance against the divine is to believe we may encounter something different, despite the fact that there is nothing that can come upon us that is not common to man.
There are many times when people have problems with God's choices, including God's people. Knowing not the end from the beginning, and having neither aappreciation nor preference for the suffering God prescribes for those belonging to Him, it is easy for mmen to choose ways to accomplish what comforts them....but does not please God. The height of faith and submission is to let God choose His way, no matter what it may do to your way, or even to you.
As the word predicted, we are awash in a sea of false teachers, most of whom are known by name.
However, we are not to label doctrine as true or false according to from whom it comes, but by what is actually said.
As today's false teachers were unknown to the writers of scripture, it makes sense to identify what characterizes false teaching, more than it maes sense to call out the false teachers. They come and go, but their doctrine hangs around for a long time
Contrary to popular belief, faith is never under attack; people of faith are under attack. Contrary also to popular belief, the good fight of faith is not a battle to gain, but a battle to maintain. Those who hold faith in the God of Israel have already been given all that is required for their salvation; they need nothing more. However, there remains something they must do, and that is to be steadfast and unmoveable. To do that, the child of God must recall that he is not called
One thing that I find frustrating is hearing or reading of people saying "Jesus fix it", or some variation of that, when becoming aware of a challenging situation. While God can "repair" anything He chooses, He is neither an attack dog that you can sic on an enemy, nor a contractor that you can hire to redo your life's kitchen. Understand that God "works" more on people who have problems then He works on people's problems, and you will understand where I
With all the challenges associated with living for God, it is easy and common for people to believe those challenges to be external. They are not. With all the opponents that fight against those who endeavor to live before God in integrity, it is easy and common to believe the fiercest opponents are others. They are not; he is not. There is no story in the tale of the tape; for while THE battle is the Lord's, my battle is with me.
