God Is Not Sadistic

Eternal Torment_jpg“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” — John 3:17

Many Christian religious sects mistakenly portray almighty God as a cruel, sadistic deity in the sky who takes pleasure in the suffering and death of the wicked.

Nothing could be further from the truth!

Jesus confirmed this when He said in John 3:17 that our Heavenly Father loves us and sent His Son to save humanity, not to condemn it. Because God is love, His actions are motivated by love. He is merciful and kind and does not take pleasure in watching people suffer or supposedly burn in hell throughout eternity. This false doctrine of eternal torment was invented by sadistic men and religious impostors who corrupted the true message of Christ.

The difference between eternal destruction and eternal torment.

Eternal torment for the wicked is NOT biblical. However, eternal destruction IS. After the final judgement, men who refused the love and salvation of God and persisted in evil works and deeds will be destroyed in the Lake of Fire, along with Satan and his demons. But that will be the end of them, since God is also just and must judge the unrighteous. For evil doers, there will be no future existence nor reincarnation nor any kind of consciousness. Only the righteous will live forever with Jesus in the New Heavens and the New Earth.

Let us pray that God will deliver us today from every form of sin that entangles our actions and pollutes our hearts so that we may be counted worthy of His mercy, forgiveness and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

Let us redeem the precious time here in this short life and invest it well for the kingdom of God. When Christ returns, eternal peace and happiness will be our reward. Furthermore, no eye has ever seen or ear has ever heard what God has planned for those that love Him and are odedient to His will (1 Cor. 2:9).

Wonderful Peace

Don Moen HymnbookFrom “Don Moen Hymnbook, 16 Classic Hymns” album.

A wonderful message of peace and comfort that never grows old.

Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight
Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;
In celestial-like strains it unceasingly falls
O’er my soul like an infinite calm.

Refrain:

Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Coming down from the Father above!
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray
In fathomless billows of love!

BIBLE PROPHECY, NEWS

A Historic Day for Israel

Israel FlagPresident Donald Trump today announced that the US now recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, overturning decades of official US policy. Mr Trump described the move as “a long overdue step” to advance the Middle East peace process.

This is a monumental day in history and in the relationship between the United Stated and Israel. For centuries, the prophetic Scriptures have pointed to the day when Jerusalem would not only be the capital of the Jewish state but also the center of God’s kingdom on the earth. We, as believers in Jesus Christ, must remind ourselves to regularly pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the Jewish people.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” – Psalm 122:6

House churches or Mega Churches: Which are better?

Today, most modern mega churches are based on the “Addition Model”, that is, when the membership grows beyond the capacity of the building, they just add an addition to the church, or build a bigger building.

“Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman who does not need to be ashamed, who rightly understands and can explain the word of truth.” – 2 Timothy 2:15

Christians are to be studying people!

The true Disciples of Jesus Christ will daily seek learning, insight and guidance from the Bible. Those who do so will be approved of God and will never be ashamed. On the contrary, those who do not study become easy prey for the many wolves and false prophets that have infiltrated the churches today and introduced false doctrine.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE, TODAY'S BIBLE VERSE

Christ Our Victory

 

Victory In Jesus_jpg

“Put on the complete armor of God, for you to be able to stand against the schemes of the devil…” – Ephesians 6:11

The Bible tells us that Christians are involved in a spiritual war. The combat is not against human enemies, but against invisible, yet real demonic entities who have a thousand ways of attacking us and trying to keep us from fulfilling our godly purposes in this life. Sometimes they may attack us through other people they control, or through sickness, or discouraging circumstances, but most mostly they attack us in our minds and thoughts.
