  • God Is No Respecter of Persons...eschatology 14

    For there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing...

    But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:For there is no respect of persons with God Romans 2:8-11Romans is the teaching about Righteousness.

  • What Righteousness Looks Like...eschatology pt 12

    (God)Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life, But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness,indignation and wrath,(Romans 2:6-8)The Infinite, personal God of the Bible, is going to judge the world in Righteousness. The standard is absolute perfection, it could be no less. “The Righteousness that he requires, is the righteousness his righteousness requires him to require…”(anon). Put aside the question of Jew or Gentile, and consider, what does Righteousness according to God’s...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | August 11, 2018 | Philip Cottraux
    The World Gets Worse, But Victory Is Just Ahead By Philip Cottraux August is interesting. As summer draws to a close, the days get shorter and the shadows longer, and one starts to expect cooler temperatures. Technically the temperatures are higher in July, but August feels hotter. The sun seems brighter and the hot air is somehow more searing as it beats down on you. Summer almost seems to throw out everything it has, burning hotter than ever in its dying gasps. The same thing happens every March. After three long months of bitter cold, I can’t wait for spring...

  • Accumulating Wrath...Eschatology pt 11

    But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: (Romans 2;5-6)Romans opens with the warning of Judgment, first against those who “suppress the truth ” that they know about God; the godless. Holy wrath is already being revealed against them, in that they are being given over to moral confusion, degrading lusts, and reprobation. But wrath is also being revealed against moralistic man. He is (rightly) disgusted by the personal and social disintegration that...
  • John MacArthur Condemned By Friends & Himself

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uY9fmUgkRLk ^ | August 5 2018 | Servus Christi
    John MacArthur has stated that one can take the mark of the beast, worshiping Satan and his image, and still be saved. The Bible says the exact opposite. He is exposed here as condemning himself unwittingly. His friend and partner Phil Johnson of Grace to You along with Chris Rosebrough of Pirate Christian Radio and Fighting for the Faith also join in condemning MacArthur. This is the fruit of personal favoritism; blind irrationality. John MacArthur propagates a damnable false teaching that is simply a lie. His sycophants Phil Johnson, Todd Friel, Justin Peters, etc. have all defended him saying that...
  • Solzhenitsyn's 1978 Prophetic Warning to America

    By: Pastor Bill Randles ”“Wisdom cries out loud in the streets, she raises her voice in the squares…” Proverbs 1:20Harvard’s motto is “Veritas”. Many of you have already found out, and others will find out in the course of their lives, that truth eludes us if we do not concentrate our attention totally on its pursuit. But even while it eludes us, the illusion of knowing it still lingers and leads to many misunderstandings. (From Solzhenitsyn’s 1978 Harvard address “A World Split Apart”)Alexander Solzhenitsyn, a Nobel Prize winning author, Soviet dissident and a survivor of an eight year sentence in...
  • Being Moral Is Not The Same As Being Holy...eschatology 9

    Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.(Romans 2:1)Being disgusted by the squalid effects of the morally ruined, spiritually bankrupt, reprobate world we have created for ourselves and our unfortunate children and grandchildren can be deceiving. It is normal and healthy to feel moral repugnance at the twisted,perverse ,obscene media culture of today, but that does not equate to being Righteous ourselves. That is the point Paul is making in the first 11 verses of Romans 2.To paraphrase verse 1, ‘Of...
  • Why Those Who Are Damned Love Crowds...eschatology pt 8

    …Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.Romans 1:30-31The last half of Romans chapter 1 is a Divine analysis of the psychology of unbelief. Why godlessness? The answer is that it is not ignorance or lack of evidence, but rather it is nothing less than a refusal to believe, and that in spite of both external(Creation, and it’s order), and internal (conscience, the universality of such intangibles as Justice and truth)...
  • Exchanging The Natural Use...eschatology pt 7

    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient…(Romans 1:26-28)As a consequence of the suppression of the revealed...
  • Trading The Truth For The Lie...eschtology pt 5

    The first chapter of the book of Romans is a Divine analysis of the psychology of unbelief . Man is liable to God’s wrath against sin, because “They suppress the truth in unrighteousness”. In other words, no one will be damned for what He doesn’t know, rather God’s judgment will be on the basis of knowledge spurned and suppressed. Every human being knows enough about God, creation, right and wrong, and judgment, to render themselves liable to the judgment of God. Jesus put it this way; And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men...
  • The Three Exchanges Made By the Godless...eschatology pt5

    And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things…Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen…For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; (Romans 1)In our previous post we discussed the fact...

  • The Psychology Of The Godless...eschatology p[t 4

    “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness…” (Romans 1:18)The Gospel doesn’t begin with man and his need for salvation, it begins with God, His Glory and His wrath against sin. The apostle tells us that the wrath of God; that is His ceaseless, active and fierce opposition to everything that is wrong, evil, perverse or false, is being revealed from heaven against man every single day. The way God’s wrath is daily being revealed is in the steady degeneration of society, the “giving over”of society...
  • The Cross Of Jesus and the Lake of Fire...eschatology pt 3

    For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.(Deuteronomy 32:22-24)The doctrine of the Divine judgment of sinners is terrible to truly contemplate. So terrible that many evangelicals are retreating from it...

    Unsealed ^ | 7/26/18 | Gary
    Something eternally significant happened about 2,000 years ago.  Few people acknowledge it.  Even most of those who do acknowledge it with their lips, corrupt the truth and malign what happened by what they teach and how they live... Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God paid the penalty for all human sin and then rose again. The LORD Jesus Christ fulfilled the mission of the long-awaited Redeemer who had been purposed from before the creation of the world (1 Pt. 1:20; 2 Tim. 1:9; Rev. 13:8), promised to Adam and Eve (Gen. 3:15–16), prophesied of by Moses (Deut. 18:18;...
  • The Lake of Fire and The Glory of God...eschatology pt 2

    Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors. ( Psalm 7:9-13)The Judeo/Christian teaching of a God of Holy wrath has by and large been rejected...

    If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of...
