Having NO Fellowship with the Works of Darkness

Ephesians 5:11- "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."
It is no doubt that one of the biggest problems today of Christians is when they are going with the wrong crowd. There is the old statement, "Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you what you are."  God demands separation from the world and holiness and unity in His family NOT unity with the world.  Christians are to be united, yes, but with each other but NOT with the worldly.  Although Christians are not to be quarrelsome, they are to be meek and they are told to love their enemies (Matthew 5:44) however they need to be confrontational when it comes to the works of darkness.  These workers can darkness can come in the form of close friends and even one's own family.  These footmen can come in the form of people who will entice Christians to sin with them.  Although Jesus ate with sinners but He DID NOT sin with them.  He ate with these sinners becau…

The Emerging Christian Population in CHINA!

Pastor John MacArthur and Pastor Daniel Wong a Chinese pastor reveals one real truth- the Chinese Christian population is booming DESPITE THE PERSECUTION THAT HITS IT OVER THE COURSE OF HISTORY!  In the video above, Pastor Daniel Wong reveals how much his family has suffered for the Lord Jesus Christ which has made me rethink my stand.  The interview above would bring tears to the eyes of any Christian who would be touched by so brave a testimony and I was touched too.
Others will continue to scorn Christians as morons, glutton for punishment and are increasingly becoming more stupid at a DAILY RATE.  Jesus already WARNED AHEAD in John 15:18-19 that the world will hate Christians.  Seriously I could care less- this world is not my home.  It's not just a matter of bigotry and tolerance, most of the world will accept a god of their definition vs. the real God of the Bible who is both love and justice.  Christians are taught to love their enemies and to pray for those who persecute…

God Uses Troubles to ALSO CALL THE CHRISTIAN'S ATTENTION!

If there's one really good reason why God allows problems in the Christian life, it is also this- TO CALL THE ATTENTION OF HIS DISCIPLES!  Truth is, Christians as they are, they still sin, they backslide and they can be disobedient to the call of God.  How true can that be?  Well it's time to really see how God uses troubles to get the Christian's attention OFF FROM THE WORLD and BACK TO GOD because they are NOT OF THE WORLD.  Hebrews 12:5-6 says that God uses chastising as heavy as it is, to keep the Christian off from the world.  All these chastisements can come in the form of financial losses, accidents that may even cause permanent damage, God allowing Christians to make bad decisions, insults from the world (and yes there will be a LOT) to name a few.  As said, God wants Christians to have their attention to Him not the world.  He saved the Christians to serve Him and not to sin all they please.  Christians know that they since day one of their Christian lives have J…

Like It or Not- God Promises MORE Troubles for Christians Ahead!

It may sound REALLY UNFAIR, HORRIBLE, UNAPPEALING and whatever that God didn't promise a life of ease, fame and comfort, rather He had promised more trouble, persecution and affliction ahead for Christians.  Sounds unfair doesn't it?  Jesus warned of persecution even by one's own relatives, He never mentioned a life of ease yet He also gave them guarantee that He will be there when trouble comes.  Matthew 6:33 He commands believers to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and ALL these things shall be added unto you.  What a wonderful promise to Christians!  God has assured if Christians seek Him, He will definitely provide for them.
True Christians will seek Him out because they are already saved but the problem is how often?  Again God uses troubles to make them seek Him more often than they seek for their own.  Remember Jesus already said about carrying the CROSS is always associated following Him.  A cross is in no symbol of pleasure, it's a symbol …

Should People Believe the Drug Mules were "Ignorant" of the Stuff They Were Selling?

The answer is NO because it's an OUTRAGEOUS LIE.  To be honest, it's a pretty outrageous issue that there are some drug mules who even dare tell the public and the authorities that they didn't know what they were selling were harmful substances.  Seriously that statement is very stupid and crazy it will only deceive a kindergarten-minded person.  This is another lie Satan wants people to believe and this ministry will continue to fight against harmful drugs and their cohorts... ALL OF THEM.
After all, these drug mules are the salesmen of the evil narcotics industry and no drug lord in the sense would EVER hire mules who couldn't tell the difference between cocaine and flour because it would jeopardize their operations.  The drug lord would make sure his agents can tell real narcotics from fake ones.  The drug mules are being sent from one area to another, taking SECRET routes to reach their destination to make sure whatever evil substance they have reaches the places …

Pride Comes Before the Fall

Proverbs 16:18-19- "Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.  Better it is to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud."
Hedonism is in fact a reality in life.  People want to seek pleasure and the whole issue can also be liked to pride. How can that be?  Pride in itself is like a narcotic which harms the mind both physically and spiritually.  Some theologians may want to compare it to alcohol, shabu, marijuana or any of these foul substances the unsaved would like to take to avoid the wooing of the Holy Ghost. Likewise pride does the same to the very individual to appeals to it to escape from their insecurities in life.  People can be boastful while they have even the slightest amount of money, fame, fortune or even which they do not possess but they think they do.  It's the evil of the heart that causes one to flaunt over what they have or to boast what they have and they do not.  The refuse to accept the…

Homosexual Sexual Activities and Their Dangers

God as always demands sexual purity for one's own good.  It is possible that these practices were done in Sodom since after all, the word "sodomy" and "sodomite" to serve as a synonym for "effeminate" and "homosexual" is also very accurate since they mimic the practices of Sodom.  As said, it's always an abomination and not to mention DISGUSTING to show that God hates sin and why He wants people to follow His precepts.  Here are some practices and what they do:
Oral sex- This practice involves one sucking the penis of the other.  The dangers of this practice include: Semen contains as much germs as the human blood (heh heh isn't it any wonder why most Satanists die such horrible deaths) and semen is ingested in the process.One must remember the reason why doctors say that one must wash their hands clean after urinating is because the penis is a dirty organ.  It's where urine is passed through.  Urine in itself is a body waste that…

Christians NEVER Put the Man of God on the Pedestal!

There is one thing people have GOT to stop is this- putting the man of God in the pedesal.  The late Alberto Romero Rivera, Paul Washer and John Macarthur just to name a few Christians who frequently war against putting the man of God on the pedestal because when they fail, the pulpit falls down as well.  One has got to admit that Christians do have their favorite preachers.  Some
people may like a pastor for being militaristic (but never without gentleness) in their pulpits which is good, others like the pastor because he is very active in doing God's work with the tithes and offerings he is entrusted to by God or that he never hesitates to attack heresies whenever they appear.  Yes these are acts that are praiseworthy yet one has to see through that regardless of how great people are, they are still sinners and a Christian's good works are but the grace of God.  
The Apostle Paul quoted in Philippians 2:13 for it is God that works in the believer.  In Philippians 3 he devo…

What About "Born Again" Roman Catholics?

Believe it or not one of the worst infiltration today takes form in the heresy of having the notion of the "born again Roman Catholic".  I did remember while I really said what Jesus said in John 3:3 saying the necessity of being born again, now there are Roman Catholics out there who dare tell me that they have been "born again" and are now my brothers and sisters in Christ.  However a closer examination of the Scripture would prove such a notion wrong.  Now here comes the question, "Can a Roman Catholic consider himself or herself a born again Christian?"   The answer is a no.
The late Pastor Alberto Romero Rivera had also warned of the Jesuit deception of making people believe that Roman Catholics can be born again, that they are fellow Christians and sadly, many people have bought this deceptive lie.  SAD BUT TRUE.  The Alberto Series reveals how much the Jesuit Order has used such a deadly weaponry not only to divide Christians but to misrepresent …

Explaining What Jesus Emphasized in Eye for Eye and Tooth for Tooth

Exodus 21:24-25 says, "Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe."  Jesus said in Matthew 5:38-39, "Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also."  Did Jesus negate the value of justice?  Not at all.  Here one has to realize the reality of the fact that Jesus as said did not come to destroy the Law but to FULFILL it (Matthew 5:17) in that very same chapter.   Overall, Jesus DID NOT negate justice but rather He went against the wrong use of the Law which the Pharisees according to history, used it to justify their vengeful behavior and UNJUST scales.  So it's highly possible that these Pharisees were already giving people punishment not according to God's weights but their own weights.
One has to realize that first and foremost…

The Faith of a Mustard Seed Elaborated

Matthew 13:31-32, Mark 4:30-32 and Luke 13:18-19 has the Lord Jesus talk about the mustard seed and how it eventually grows overtime.  Looking at it, the mustard seeds starts as a small as it may be, when it was planted and tended, it became a great tree that bore much fruit and the fowls of the air were on its branches.  So how does this apply to the Christian?  Jesus said in Matthew 18:3, Mark 10:15 and Luke 18:17 that one must receive the Kingdom of God as a little child or likewise one cannot enter.  That is unless they see their need for God, they cannot even see the need for salvation.  
Here's an excerpt from Matthew Henry's commentary series, "Christ spoke many words of His sufferings, but only one of His glory; yet the disciples fasten upon that, and overlook the others. Many love to hear and speak of privileges and glory, who are willing to pass by the thoughts of work and trouble. Our Lord set a little child before them, solemnly assuring them, that unless they …

Using Luke 11:27-28 to Defend Marian Devotion Debunked

Luke 11:27-28 says, "And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But He said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the Word of God, and keep it." (King James version, note that even the Good News and the Douay translation keeps the same meaning)
One of the verses that Roman Catholic faith defenders have used to defend their Marian devotion are Luke 11:27-28 that the people were giving praises to Mary and that this verse is frequently misinterpreted by Baptists and their fellow born again Christian believers to discredit their Marian devotion even when the BIble NOWHERE teaches Mary should even be venerated in that way as to call her names that are only for God alone.  If one should truly examine Mary in the Bible, clearly she had also refused to intercede between people and her son in John 2:5 to do whatever Jesus tells them to…

Errors in Easy Believism

There is the error called easy believism which differentiates itself from the Lordship theology.  What makes it different?  So far thanks to watered down preaching, easy believism is a heresy that has crept into the churches which some of these outrageous heresies are being taught and how they do not match Scriptures:
1.) Easy believism EXCLUDES repentance as part of saving faith
Believe it or not, that's one error in easy believism.  They try to misquote the book "Except Ye Repent" by Harry Allen Ironside.  The reality of the matter is repentance is necessary.  Jesus Himself said in Mark 1:15, "REPENT ye and believe the Gospel." and in Luke 13:3 saying, "I tell you, nay, except ye REPENT ye shall likewise perish.".  Again the Bible calls to repentance towards salvation.  A repentance of one's sins happens because unless a person even repents of their sins, they will NEVER want to get saved.  As said, yes, salvation is never worked for, it's …

Christians Should NEVER Seek Approval From the World

Here's on reality that cannot be denied- Christians are NOT of this world.  Jesus already warned in John 15:18-19 saying that the Christians will be hated by the world, they are not of this world and world would choose its own but because the Christians are called out of the world, the world will hate them and that the world hates Jesus before it hates His true followers.  1 John 3:13 is a reminder that Christians should never get surprised if the world hates them.  Here's the reality about the world remember Satan held his spiritual grip on mankind not ever since Adam and Eve sinned by disobeying God's command NEVER to eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge.  But they did it anyway and thus the world fell into the horrible mess that it refuses to get out of.  And Jesus was right- it hated Him before it hated His followers which is evident in man hating the true God ever since the beginning that man sinned.
The deadly problem today is insensible compromise.  Compromise i…
