Sneaky Calvinism vs. Overcoming Sin!

Spiritual Abuse Sanctuary

How to Stop Sinning, (part 1 of 4)

 http://standingthegap.org/

The following is from an e-mail I sent to a sister in the LORD during a conversation we were having about the dangers of Calvinism:

That’s the danger of reading other people’s stuff, it can be so sneaky.

God’s Word is the best, as taught by the Holy Spirit. That’s all I did way back in the very beginning, and you know what? He was always gently provoking me to good works and a closer walk with Jesus. Why bother with the gifts of the Spirit and the fruits of the Spirit at all, or even listening to Him if we are just going to lay back and remain “as is”?

There is a growth in the Spirit, and a greater faith to be attained and built up in the Spirit, and let me tell you it does come by grace accompanied…

Idols don’t go to Heaven

David Bowie mocked God during his very ungodly wicked life, but now Satan is mocking him in death, unless he managed, or was even able– to repent and ask for forgiveness, and to be saved by the Lord Jesus Christ.

While half the people in America, including some who claim to be Christians, are lionizing David Bowie, his career and supposed artistic genius………I am not. I am not celebrating his life, and especially not his influence in the world where it impacted the lives of others. So, I’m not going to write much about his death. or his life. Volumes have already been written about him, many of which seem to revel in his apparent interest and involvement in the occult. I don’t doubt for a minute that Satan was his master, and the author of his supposed “artistic genius”, if you could call it that. I was never a Bowie fan, but I had the unfortunate experience of watching his video “Lazarus” because of curiosity and the unusual title. It was visually and spiritually ugly and repulsive. It totally creeped me out.  There was nothing whatever edifying in his life or music, no matter what his fans may say. And at his funeral? Well, there are many lies being told at funerals nowadays. There will be many more told at his.

Just for the record, for all his fans and others who may come across this blog post, this is the truth. More truth than David Bowie knew or was capable of. Had he known just how much truth it was while he was still alive, he would have fallen on his knees and begged the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness:

“And having summoned the crowd with His disciples, He said to them, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and let him take up his cross, and let him follow Me. For whoever might desire to save his life will lose it, and whoever will lose his life on account of Me and of the gospel, he will save it.

For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and to lose his soul? For what shall a man give as an exchange for his soul?” Mark 8:34-37

HUNGRY EYES: A cure?

Biblical Connection

watching-tv1What is the effect of hungry eyes? One effect is lawlessness.  It was once illegal to commit adultery or have pre-marital sex; in fact, such offspring was called illegitimate. Today, far worse evils abound.

Legally, today temptation is everywhere, and the devil and the world around you are bent on throwing temptation everywhere you go, and your own flesh is weak even if your spirit is willing. Also, it goes without saying that the FCC and the government are not doing their job.  In fact, the rise of today’s technology doesn’t help.  How do we react when stats are saying that America is out-of-control? When conservatives are falling like flies to temptation and sometimes in the most perverse of forms?  We should expect such behavior when a culture is saturated with immoral images and hungry eyes everywhere.  Job, who is a great example to all of us and who the…

Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss

Spiritual Abuse Sanctuary

“We Won’t be Fooled Again”.

(or will we?)

 Some things never change. Jesus for example, never changes; thank The Lord God for that!  But it seems there are other forces that war against our spirits; that is the spirit of antichrist, of whom we have been warned from the beginning, the deception of Satan himself, (the old Boss), that wars against our very souls for control and preeminence. Stop and think just how many new movements, (or even old ones) have arisen since the inception of the Body of Christ in the early primitive church. Jesus Christ warned of false prophets, and false Christs. The Apostle Paul in many places warned of new strange doctrines and deceiving, seducing spirits.

” For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God. 28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which…
