    Contrary Doctrine

    Jim, Thank you very much for this devotion on, 'Contrary Doctrine,' based on Romans 16:17 You hit the nail on the head on the following observation, "Why are there different doctrines among professing churches? We have possession of God’s Word. We also have division, sects, creeds and denominations, Why? Because they refuse to submit their whole moral being to the authority of the Scripture." As you mentioned, the "contrary doctrines" from the false teachers, in the false churches, stem from the commandments of men, "The ‘so called’ church has wholly departed from the authority of the Word of God. In these churches, things are taught that have no foundation in the Scripture. They not only tolerate, but sanction and defend that which is in direct opposition to the mind of Christ. He spoke of them in Mat.15:8-9. This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." God bless! Alan

    Whats for Supper...

    Sad to say, no. I do though enjoy all of the fellowship dinners very much, so, I am not too concerned whether or not they have Chinese dishes. If I want a real good Chinese dinner I just ask my wife.

    Bristol Revival by CT Townsend

    Here is the 'Statement of Faith' that I found by brother Townsend and some related e-mail addresses. Ministry Statement Of Faith & Mission Redeeming Blood Ministries·Friday, February 2, 2018 Our Calling Is The Share The Gospel Of Jesus Christ To The World We Use The King James Version Bible Only In This Ministry What We Believe And Why We Believe God’s Word! We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the inspired Word of God. The scriptures are inerrant, infallible, the final authority for faith and life. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21) The Godhead We believe in “on” a Triune God, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory and having the same attributes and perfection. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; John 14:10,26) We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through his death on the cross as a representative vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and that our justification is made sure by his literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (Acts 2:18-36; Romans 3:24-25; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:17; I Peter 1:3-5) We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where as our High Priest, he fulfills the ministry of representative, intercessor, and advocate. (Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 9:24; 7:25; Romans 8:34; I John 2:1-2) Salvation We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; I Peter 1:18-19) The Eternal Security and Assurance of Believers We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever. (John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 38-39; I Corinthians 1:4-8; I Peter 1:4-5) We believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word, which however clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion to the flesh (Romans 13:13-14; Galatians 5:13; Titus 2:11-15) The Second Advent of Christ We believe in that “Blessed Hope” the personal, imminent return of Christ who will rapture His Church prior to the seven-year tribulation period. At the end of the Tribulation, Christ will personally and visibly return with His saints, to establish his earthly Kingdom which was promised to the nation of Israel. (Psalm 89:3-4; Daniel 2:31-45; Zechariah 14:4-11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Revelation 3:10, 19:11-16, 20:1-6) Creation We believe that God created the universe in six literal 24 hour periods. We reject evolution, the Gap Theory, the Day-Age Theory, and Theistic Evolution as unscriptural theories of origin. (Genesis 1:2; Exodus 20:11) Our Mission (To See Souls Saved) we believe that God has given the Church and Ministries a great commission to preach and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations so that there might be a great multitude from every nation, tribe, ethnic group, and language group who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 10:9-13 Kjv (How To Be Saved) See Also John 3:14-17 Kjv 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. We believe as ambassadors of Christ we must use all available means (“Online Ministry”, Radio Broadcasts, Podcast, Facebook Live,) to go to the foreign nations sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, Luke 14:23 And the Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

    Whats for Supper...

    Enjoyed a fellowship dinner at two different churches today.
  7. Jim,

    Thank you for helping to fix the problem with posting.

    I do hope that the services went well at your church and that the Lord used you as you filled in for the pastor.

    We just got back from reporting to two churches. Both services went well and we enjoyed the fine fellowship, and the good spirit, of both churches.

    God bless!

      Jim,

      Glad to hear that a lady came forward for membership.

      Sounds like all three of your messages would make good devotions or subjects for discussion.

      For instance: Have you thought about starting a thread called. "Contrary Doctrines," in the 'Cult, thread?

    Pleasing God & Peace

    Lila, Thank you for your comments. Suffering for the cause of Christ does unite fellow saints. Your comments reminded of the words of Paul when he said, "And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it." 1 Corinthians 12:26 Thank you again for your comments. Alan

    Clarence Larkin - The Spirit World

    Ronda, "The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat." Proverbs 15:30 Thank you for the good report. It is a blessing in my heart to know that this study is a blessing to you. It is my hope that this Overview, and studies of the different subjects in Larkin's, "The Spirit World," is a blessings to others also. It was my intention at the beginning to help others make a self-study on the different subjects in Larkin's book in order to have a more complete knowledge of the Spirit World. Alan

    Major changes

    Thanks for the update, the deputation video, link information. I personally like the scripture verse that you wrote on your Prayer Card. 1 Thessalonians 1:9, “For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God.” It is my prayer that the Lord blesses your efforts on the deputation trail and your work in Nicaragua.

    Clarence Larkin - The Spirit World

    After I made the notes on Satan, some more thoughts came to me concerning the "Methods Of Satan." Note on the Methods of Satan by Alan Satan is a deceiver and our adversary. Satan uses deception: through himself, his angels, evil spirits, and his ministers (false prophets, false teachers and false ministers of the gospel), in an effort to deceive. We will briefly look at two of his methods. In the following two methods we must remember that false teachers, false religions, and false prophets have used these methods throughout history and in the Christian realm in our age. 1. Satan subtly, then openly, places doubt on the word of God. In Genesis 3:1-21 Satan deceived Eve in a subtle manner and caused Adam and Eve to openly transgress the commandment of God. Satan started this deception by questioning what God said then openly twisting the very words of God. Genesis 3:1, “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” In our day and age, this questioning of the word of God continues unabated by false ministers through the proliferation of false Bible translations of the King James Version of 1611 in seminaries, books, and compromising ministers. In the English language, the King James Version of 1611 is the “preserved word of God” and every version since the Revised Version of 1881 is a corrupt translation. 2. Satan miss-used, and miss-quoted, the scriptures themselves in order to try and deceive the Lord Jesus on the Mount of Temptation as recorded in Matthew 4:1-11 Matthew 4:6 “And saith [Satan] unto him [Jesus] If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.” Satan miss-quoted, and miss-used, Psalm 91:11, “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” Satan left out, “… in all thy ways…” The miss-use, miss-quoting, and taking a verse out of context, or changing the meaning of words in the scriptures, and maligning the King James Version, continues unabated by compromising ministers, false teachers, the Charismatics, the Catholics, Seminary Professors, Greek scholars, the Church of Christ denomination, trolls on the internet, disgruntled saints, the Progressive Movement among the Fundamentalist Movement, and many others too numerous to mention.

    Financial struggles

    I will pray for you this evening. May the Lord guide you as you go through these trials. My wife and I just finished reading Psalm 73 tonight in our devotions. I would encourage you to read it also.
