Question Answered

I asked a question recently at my Facebook feed (in summary) if Christians should just let evil flourish. 
I am here with an answer. 

2 Thessalonians 2:5-8
1 John 3:8
Romans 8:9

There may be other passages but these helped me with the question. 

I heard a Minister of the Gospel say we are to stand against evil to prolong the time we can have to preach the Gospel of Salvation. Other than because GOD said so, that’s the best reason I’ve heard to date. 

We know from 2 Thessalonians 2:5-8 that HOLY SPIRIT restrains the Evil One from being fully revealed in this world and He restrains the rise of the Anti-Christ to power at this time. He will not always do that. 
From 1 John 3:8 I know that JESUS came to earth to destroy the works of the Devil, the Evil One. 
From Romans 8:9 I know that every SAVED person is indwelt by HOLY SPIRIT.

So, since HOLY SPIRIT is here to restrain the evil one; since JESUS came to destroy the works of the devil, and since all true Christians have HOLY SPIRIT living within us; it stands to reason that Christians must allow HOLY SPIRIT to resist and restrain evil in this world through us. 

So, what evil do we resist, restrain?
Every stinky form of it that is in this world.
How?
However, HOLY SPIRIT provides us individually and collectively with a way to stand. 

Off the Cuff

This helped me this morning when it came. I hope it helps you too.

The Bible and the Accounts of Saints and Sinners contained therein tells me my Brothers and Sisters who have been reborn into CHRIST JESUS, ADONAI YESHUA (if you prefer), that we are in no more danger of death today than we were prior to March 2020.
Not even a sparrow falls to the ground without His Notice.
Do we really think that we who JESUS died and rose again for do not constantly have His Notice, His Love, and His Watchcare over us? (Romans 8:32)

The nanosecond that fear begins to rise in our thoughts is the moment to rebuke the author of it and the soul he is using to deliver it.  Even if the voice of fear we hear is our own. 

Stacked

The 2020 Presidential Election.
I posted the following to my Just Because blog last evening. I’m bringing it here today.

It just occurred to me that Biden and Harris did not campaign because they knew they did not have to.
They knew the election had been bought for them from day one.

They knew the deck had been stacked. They knew the ballots were inflated.
So he could rest assured in his basement and venture out only for appearance’s sake. It was in the bag! He could take it for granted.

To the contrary, President Trump took nothing for granted. He campaigned and folks came by the thousands. He labored tirelessly. The Election was not bought for him. There’s a reason for that.

And it may be that the devil wins this round. I don’t know. We may have lost America. I don’t know.
BUT GOD will provide for HIS OWN.
There’s no better time than now to get ready. To repent and believe The GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. HE is the ONLY Truth we have.

Romans 5:17  (TLV) 17 For if by the one man’s transgression, death reigned through the one, how much more shall those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the One, Messiah Yeshua. source

 

Professors

This post is for professing Christians only.

If you have or you intend to vote for a political candidate that has said he or she will fight for you or anyone else to continue to have the legal right to obtain an abortion, you may not be saved.

If you have or intend to vote for a political candidate that has indicated he or she will legally enhance the distribution of taxpayer money to people who refuse to work, you may not be saved.

If you have or intend to vote for a political candidate that has indicated he or she will fight to legally advance or protect legal privileges for those who practice or participate in perverted sexual conduct, you may not be saved.
 
If either of these apply to you, I urge you to check your Damascus Road Experience. You may have missed it and you may not have a covenant relationship with JESUS.
Your eternity depends on it, please don’t delay to inquire.

Proverbs 14:34 (NLT) 34 Godliness makes a nation great, but sin is a disgrace to any people. source

2 Thessalonians 3:10

Romans 1:18-32

 

Don’t Go There

Hell.

I am uncommonly reminded of it this morning.
I am scared for people.
People are going to hell.
Did you know that?
How often do you think about that?
Who wants to think about that? I don’t. But I am.
Billions of people are on their way to hell. (Matthew 7:13)
Billions have already made their way there.
The majority of people who die, do not go to Heaven.
Most go to hell.
You do know this, don’t you?

I feel somewhat like Noah I think and not due to the rain.
As I type this piece we are expecting much rain. There is a hurricane in the Gulf headed quickly this way.  What the hurricane will do is not certain.
But hell is certain. It is certain that every person who dies without a covenant relationship with YESHUA, The Messiah, The Christ will go to hell. Period. Forever.

How much do we care?

Hebrews 9:27  (AMP) 27 And just as it is appointed and destined for all men to die once and after this [comes certain] judgment,  source

Romans 6:23 (TLV) 23 For sin’s payment is death, but God’s gracious gift is eternal life in Messiah Yeshua our Lord. source

Romans 10:9  (NKJV) that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. source

Matthew 11:28  (AMP) 28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation]. source

If GOD is still speaking to you, say YES to HIM today.
I’d like to help if I may, email or comment.
