The God of All Grace

Originally posted on Knowing God through His Word...Day by Day:

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

John Piper asks, in a sermon “The Dominion Belongs to the God of All Grace”

roaring-lionSo can true, born again, Christians possibly be devoured by the devil? No they can’t, because true born again Christians resist the devil firm in their faith. That’s the meaning of being true born again Christians; they have the Holy Spirit inside moving them to fight the fight of faith.

Ephesians 1:19-20

Our heavenly Father has called us to live a supernatural life—one that is contrary to the world’s thinking. In our own strength, it is very difficult to say no to ungodliness, because our flesh yearns to say yes. To live the Lord’s way takes His divine power. In order to draw on His strength, believers need to develop attitudes of humility, trust, and perseverance.

God opposes the proud, who think, I can do this myself (James 4:6). He pours out His strength to the ones who know that they cannot accomplish the goal but believe that He can do so through them. The Lord wants us to trust Him. He may at times ask us to remain in an uncomfortable situation or take on a task that seems far beyond our capability. In either circumstance, relying on Him will bring us the inner fortitude to choose His way.

John MacArthur – Heeding God’s Warnings

John MacArthur – Heeding God’s Warnings

“By [Thy judgments] Thy servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward” (Ps. 19:11).

Heeding God’s warnings brings spiritual protection and great joy.

Psalm 19:11 concludes David’s hymn on the sufficiency of Scripture. How appropriate that it ends noting the value of God’s warning, because guarding His people against temptation, sin, error, foolishness, false teachers, and every other threat to their spiritual well-being is a major concern to God.

For example, God said to the prophet Ezekiel, “Now as for you, son of man, I have appointed you a watchman for the house of Israel; so you will hear a message from My mouth, and give them warning from Me” (Ezek. 33:7). The great tragedy of the Old Testament is that Israel rejected God’s “statutes and His covenants which He made with their fathers, and His warnings with which He warned them” (2 Kings 17:15).

The apostle Paul…

Originally posted on SettledInHeaven.org Blog:

The Lord, by His grace not only tells us He is coming again but He also gives us signs that will tell us His coming is getting closer.  Lets take a look at Matthew 24: and see what are some of the indications that His coming and the end of this world as we know it.

THE SCRIPTURES:

Matt 24:1-51 (KJV)

THE STUDY:

In the above passages, we find the Lord giving us several  “signs” or marks of His second coming and end of the age in which we are now living…

Matt 24

 

1) And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to [him] for to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2) And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another…

Trials: Part 4

Originally posted on holdingforthhisword:

God’s Word tells us that His children will experience trials and tribulations in this world, because we are not of the world.   As His children, we are filled with His Holy Spirit and we make our stand upon the Word of God, rejecting the false religious systems which lead the lost astray, even if those systems masquerade as the “church” teaching perversions of the truth of Christ.

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.  19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own.  Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.  20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’  If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.  If they kept My Word, they will…

All For God

Originally posted on Still They Speak:

“Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (2 Corinthians 1:31).  “Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father” (Colossians 3:17).  What God requires of us in these verses is staggering!  And utterly beyond our own ability. The life of faith extends to every part of our lives.  Our every thought and action must be directed by our religion, by our relationship to God.  Christians are not left to their own resources in anything.  In everything we do, we must look to Christ’s command, looking for His help, aiming at His glory.  Other people should see God’s grace at work in our lives.  Those who live by faith will not try to make God serve their desires.  They will seek to please Him, whatever their present condition may be.”–Michael Stohlmeyer Anchors of Faith
