Wake Up! And Strengthen the Things Which Remain

I have always wondered how the entire world could be swept away so easily by evil. I have also agonized over why the church of our day is being led into lukewarm Christianity. Why are most satisfied with a daily prayer, the reading of a few verses in Scripture, the chasing after the latest prophetic message, and a weekly worship service? While most of Christianity is on the verge of dying, all they can talk about is the great escape before things get too bad. Almost no one is talking about strengthening what remains and perfecting their works before God. Hardly anyone is talking about transformation in Christ and becoming all that God wants us to be. The Bible says, “Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God” (Revelation 3:2). We will discover together how to strengthen those things which remain and how to perfect our works before God. If we don’t then those things which lie ahead will drag us further down into a pit of misery and the Great Tribulation meant to refine and awaken His Church.

As athletes practice and work out daily to win the prize, so does the believer in Christ. Walking the aisle and deciding to follow Jesus Christ is only the first step in a long journey of enduring many different trials and tribulations. It’s a lifelong journey of overcoming many obstacles and dangerous pitfalls sent by the enemy. Yet through all this, the Christian grows stronger as he learns to walk in his faith every hour of every day. As he keeps in step with the indwelling Spirit, he learns all the disciplines of the Christian faith. He learns very quickly that the beginning of his strength comes from putting off the old life and the ways of the fallen world that have pulled him down from the cradle. He learns that everything in the world of fallen humanity is directed by the powers of evil and the wiles of the devil to keep him from experiencing the joy of his salvation. As the athlete strengthens his muscles to accomplish his goals, the Christian’s real strength comes from putting on the new life in Christ, but again this is only the first step. However, it is a very important step because one must really believe that they have a new life in Christ. Without belief in the new life, the old devil will continue to pull you down convincing you that you are not worthy of the new life in Christ. Or convincing you that you need the help of fallen humanity to succeed, which is a lie of the devil.

Let’s digress a bit and discover together how today’s Christian has suffered such a great loss and needs to strengthen what remains. Simply put, today’s Christian has believed the lie of the devil. He no longer believes in the new life in Christ. He no longer believes that old things have truly passed away, which is a direct contradiction of the Bible that says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17). Furthermore, Christ does not give us this new life and then depart back to heaven leaving us to work things out on our own. On the contrary, He gives us the indwelling Spirit whose express job is to help us put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ through what is known as transformation in Christ. The indwelling Spirit does not come empty-handed but has all the resources of the Godhead that has been written down in Holy Scripture conveyed to us as we grow from one degree of glory to another. The Bible says, “According to his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 1:3). Yet, fallen humanity and the carnal Christian no longer believe this truth and have suffered a great loss because of it.

So, the first step to strengthen what remains is to reject the lie of the devil and start believing the truth. Once that takes place then we need to learn “all things that pertain unto life and godliness.” The best place to start is the inward discipline of meditation and prayer: to study, understand, and apply God’s Holy Word to your life. For example, if we read in the Sermon on the Mount that we need to turn the other cheek and go the extra mile along with many other beautiful truths, then through prayer and meditation we learn how to apply these truths to our lives. Step by step as the indwelling Spirit leads, we learn and apply each truth to our lives thus helping us to grow closer to Christ and to experience the power of the transformation, becoming all that He wants us to be in Christ. Friends, the world cannot do this. The unbelieving or carnal Christian cannot do this. This is only possible through faith, believing with our entire heart, and obedience to God’s direction through the indwelling Spirit. The good news is, the more we grow in Christ, the easier it becomes to throw off the yoke of the fallen world and the lies of the devil. Depression, anxiety, loneliness, grief, anger, along with hundreds of other so-called disorders pass away and are dealt with easily through the power and truth of the indwelling Spirit.

The second step is to learn and apply the outward disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service. We begin by learning that we are no longer controlled by a desire to amass wealth and prosperity. Our true treasure is stored up in heaven as we give ourselves fully to others through both financial and Spiritual gifts. We learn that our true wealth is in our solitude before a holy God. We love and appreciate the truly quiet life of allowing God to speak to us through the indwelling Spirit. Allowing Him to direct us along the narrow path as we meditate on God’s written Word in the Holy Bible. No longer afflicted with loneliness we enjoy hours of quiet meditation before the Lord in solitude. We learn true submission to others through humility by honoring others above ourselves, seeking their opinion even if they are considered less than us. And then finally in our last outward discipline, we learn service to God and to others. Simply put, we live to serve others. All that we do, we do for others that God might be glorified. Each step of the way we begin to realize the Spiritual growth that is taking place within us as we experience the power of transformation in Christ.

Finally, as we seek to strengthen those things that remain in our Christian faith, we don’t ignore the corporate disciplines that are also essential to our Spiritual growth. The Bible says that we should confess our sins one to another. We all stumble by saying and doing things to others that are not right, that can be hurtful and even cause a weaker brother to stumble. It takes a mature believer in Christ to humbly confess one’s faults to another seeking their forgiveness as we also seek absolution from God alone. Although there are many other disciplines, we have only chosen to look at a few for this particular study. The next outward disciplines we will look at today are worship and evangelism. To worship God with others, even if it’s only a few others, is valuable to your faith in that we garner a much higher experience in both knowledge and insight through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Bible says, “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness” (Acts 4:31). And of course, this leads into our last discipline to be discussed which is evangelism or sharing the gospel, or simply being able to explain to someone about the hope that you have in Christ Jesus. There is no greater help to your faith and growth in Christ Jesus than sharing it with others. An essential discipline to help us to strengthen the things which remain and being ready for the return of Christ in glory. Amen

Revelation – A New World Coming

Every true believer in Christ is looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth. However, what will concern us today is the new world that Satan and his henchmen are making right now under the noses of fallen humanity. For years we have all been concerned about the New World Order that would be established and ruled by the coming Antichrist. They have taught this in the schools of higher learning and in the movies that we’ve watched for over sixty years. For those who have been brought up to believe this, look forward to a time when every nation will work together in mutual respect and harmony. They have foreseen a world that has moved beyond the captivity of religion, especially Christianity, and into the future by overcoming the depravity of man through psychiatric counseling. They have foreseen the abolishment of hunger, wars, and the effects of Global Warming caused by man. I am here to say that this is all a fantasy. It’s a lie from the pit of hell. As we shall see unless man’s heart is changed by returning to the basic principles of our Christian faith then man’s wickedness will increase with the proportionate outpouring of God’s wrath through His Seals, Trumpets, and Bowls (See Revelation 6,8,9,16).

Fallen humanity cannot fix the depravity of their hearts. Although he has tried for thousands of years through every known religion and social structure, it has always failed. Even Christianity build on seven hills and the remnants of the great city of Rome it too has failed because it has allowed self-righteous man to enter its hallowed halls and change it’s faith (See Revelation 17:4-6, 9). They along with the rest of Christendom have all but rejected the Sufficiency of Scripture and the Exclusiveness of Christianity, which has allowed a great evil to enter the church (See II Peter 1:3; John 14:6). They have allowed Satan to lead them around by the nose instead of being transformed into a new creation in Christ (See II Corinthians 5:17). Even their unholy wedding with every social structure known to man has not been successful in changing the heart of man. All has been tried from Socialism to Communism, and from Fascism to Capitalism but all have failed. Nations and people still rage, as they invent newer ways to destroy one another. Horrific crimes that shock our sensibilities still go unabated against humanity. Hunger and diseases still ravages the planet and our once beautiful home is still being destroyed. Nothing has changed. Man’s heart is still depraved.

The world that’s being shaped now is not going to be any better. In fact, it’s going to be far worse, because they have rejected the only thing that can truly change man’s heart. Things are not what they appear. It doesn’t take an expert to see that most of our freedoms have already diminished by allowing evil to prevail in our legal system, health care, education, and the business sector driven by wealth and greed. Don’t think for a minute that evil will be eradicated just because some promises have been made by those in power. Experimental drugs will continue on the market as they seek to control and boost the productivity of the workforce and to refine drugs to help the mental experts deal with the depravity of humanity. Don’t think for a moment that we will overturn the rights of the homosexual community and stop the pedophile’s quest for sexual encounters with children. Don’t think for a moment that we will stop public education from teaching their perversions and historical revisions to our children. Don’t think for a moment that we will overturn the mother’s desire to kill their own child through abortion. Don’t think that for a moment that we will actually stop those who are destroying our planet or polluting the environment. Our freedoms have been taken away step by step over the past sixty years while most of us have slept. We have already lost our freedoms to carry our Bibles, to teach or preach in schools, in public buildings, malls, parks and on the streets without a permit.

So what do we do, as children of the Most High God? We cannot ultimately change the direction of the world, but there is much we can do, and should do. It can be summarized in two points: 1) come out from among them; and 2) draw close to Jesus Christ in faith and obedience. What matters most to me is that you will be prepared for the coming of Christ in the clouds (See Mark 13:26). So, the first thing we need to do, is stop following the world’s agenda that’s keeping you so confused and ignorant that you would not recognize the Beast (or the Antichrist) if he were standing right before you. Redeem the time. Quit following every wind of doctrine where the News Media, Social Media, public education, and Hollywood has become a cesspool of contradicting information to keep you uninformed, busy, and aggravated. Believe me, it will be totally unacceptable to withdraw from society. It will be illegal, if not already, to reject your children’s public education and its profane curriculum and to reject the counsel and drugs from your counselor of psychiatry (under the cloak of Social Services). It will, in the near future, be illegal to reject the world’s method to monitor your movement and purchases through a new and improved chip on your credit and debit cards. Cash and personal checks will no longer exist.

Now, for the second thing. Do not come to me for I am merely a man. Come to Jesus Christ believing that He has already given you everything you need for life and godliness (See II Peter 1:3). Listen to Him through Scripture confirmed by the indwelling Spirit. Walk with Him in obedience to all of His commands allowing the indwelling Spirit to produce every Spiritual fruit (See Galatians 5:22-23). If we say we truly believe in the Sufficiency of Scripture, then as Christians we will reject any and all forms of psychiatric counseling, psychotherapy, and especially their mind-altering drugs. I foresee a time when God’s faithful remnant will need to withdraw to a private place to teach their children and one another. To a place where they can counsel one another from the Holy Scriptures. The Bible says, “As far as I am concerned about you, my brothers, I am convinced that you especially are abounding in the highest goodness, richly supplied with perfect knowledge and competent to counsel one another” (Romans 15:14, Williams). To withdraw to a place where they can worship freely in the Spirit without being tracked by those in power. Believe me, that won’t sit well with those in power. They will seek to draw you back into the fold. Dear saints, this will call for patient endurance.

We must decide: are we children of the light or are we children of darkness? The children of light will only teach their children the truth and not allow them to be exposed to the evil in the world, especially at such a young tender age. Why would a five-year-old be told that he or she has a right to choose their own gender, or that they have a choice to become homosexual even if their parents are against it? The children of light would spend more time caring for the needs of others by helping them to grow up in their faith, rather than wasting it on senseless debates and chasing after every new wind of doctrine. The children of light would be more concerned with transformation and producing spiritual fruit, than following the latest news articles or bashing the other side. The children of light would learn how God’s Word answers every one of your emotional and psychological problems, rather than depending on the world to solve your problems. The children of light would embrace their own God given gender and seek to embrace the opposite sex, instead of chasing after the perversions of our society. Dear children let’s withdraw from society, seek out others of like faith, and be children of light, because Christ’s return is much closer than you think.

The Lukewarm Church is Blinded by The World

When did we stop trusting God? When did we stop trusting Him to really make us into a new creation and then to grow us from one degree of glory to another (See II Corinthians 5:17; 3:18)? Perhaps it all started when the world turned its back on God and then discovered very quickly that humanity was in trouble. Why were they in trouble? There was no longer a moral anchor and humanity began to drift into a greater sea of immorality. Many tried desperately to reign in terror and gross immorality with new laws and mandates, but everything failed. As churches emptied and immorality increased fallen humanity needed a solution and they needed it quick. So, in time they resurrected some old theories of a pagan writer who lived a few centuries earlier; someone who thought he understood human nature. Then with the experimentation of new drugs, seemingly to affect behavior, and this new science of mental health, then the art of modern psychology was born. So, humanity no longer needed God to direct their path and provide them a moral anchor, because a new quasi religion had arrived on the scene to solve all the problems of fallen humanity. So how does all this affect the lukewarm church?

Let’s back up a minute. Humanity had been in great trouble once before. Many centuries before when every man called upon his own deity and decided his own fate. A time when most of humanity could change his moral commitment or religious devotion as easily as changing his soiled clothes. The world was on a collision course with destiny and all would have been lost if it were not for one solitary figure. Jesus Christ came offering a new life to all who would follow Him. This was the miracle of miracles! He came to offer eternal life, but the real miracle is that it would start immediately. There was no waiting. The new life in Christ was not just a promise, but a reality to be experienced now. All that was needed was faith to open the door and even that would become a free gift through His amazing grace. If God could create the heavens and the earth, then surely he could re-create new life in His children. Nothing was left to chance, but everything was planned down to the smallest detail. God would begin by giving us the indwelling Spirit with a specific job of growing us from one degree of glory to another, by putting His laws into our hearts and writing them in our minds, giving us a desire and the ability to obey them, and even convict us when we strayed from the path. But that’s just the beginning!
Jesus Christ would establish His Church. Let’s be clear this is not the building. It is the people of God who are encouraged to come together as one people. Jesus Christ knew we needed one another as we grow and change becoming the new person in Christ. We would realize almost immediately that becoming different from the world would cause some dire problems. We would soon discover that we are no longer loved as their own, but rejected, scorned, and even persecuted. In the beginning of my own Christian pilgrimage, I can still remember the words of exhortation, encouragement and even an occasional admonishment from other dear children in the Lord. Of course, the greatest teacher was the indwelling Spirit that validated the beautiful Words in Scripture and helped me apply them to my own walk. I also discovered the great joy that comes from corporate worship and intercessory prayer. Then there was the great reward of helping others who had just begun their new life in Christ. All the “one another statements” in the Bible became especially meaningful as we learned to mutually encourage one another. So you might be wondering how did counseling from the world, devised for fallen humanity, get into the Church?

Well, there is a two-fold answer. Most people coming from the world, especially the adults, have grown up being told about all the things that they could suffer from. People started looking at their mental health the same way that they looked at the rest of their health issues. For us older folks we know it didn’t always be that way, psychology and any talk of mental health was only for crazy people, not for us regular people. As time progressed it became the most natural thing to suffer from worry, anxiety, stress, depression, loneliness, fear or any other number of disorders. For the record, the book containing these disorders has grown very thick over the years. The counselor’s office became just as important as the regular doctor or even the preacher. The great turning away from God created the humanistic counselor who promised to help those who struggled with their sins, which by the way was no longer called a sin, but an illness. This became so popular among fallen humanity that the Seminary started teaching psychology to new pastors, first in the Catholic Church, then also in the Protestant churches. I can remember taking a class in psychology at Seminary 35 years ago with many new pastors vehemently resisting the notion of needing to learn something that was designed to help fallen humanity – for those who turned away from God.

So over the past 35 years, psychology or at least its bedfellow Christian counseling (that utilizes the same methods as psychology) found itself fully established into the ministry of the local church. Now I know some pastors today will say that my Christian counseling always points people to the Bible. Yes, I am sure that it does, but it does a lot more. It uses most of the same operative words of psychology allowing them to stay trapped in their perceived illnesses that takes a great deal of time to bring about healing even if that’s totally possible. Where is the promised new life in Christ? Where is the miracle of miracles? Some pastors even take it a step further and preach this lie of needed counseling for the new person in Christ and the perceived illness straight from the pulpit. Whatever happened to sin? Jesus Christ never established the Church to set up counseling offices to help His children. What He did do was give everyone a new life in Him along with the indwelling Spirit who is our Counselor. He gave us a body of believers to help one another by bearing one another’s burdens and utilizing all the beautiful “one another statements” in the Bible (See Galatians 6:2).

What we should be doing is helping them to confirm their new life in Christ. Help them to see if they are really saved and if not, then perhaps there is an issue with faith, not an illness. We need to be as bold as the New Testament that says, if we say that we have fellowship with Him then we no longer walk in darkness (See I John 1:6). If we say that we know Christ, then we keep His commands (see I John 2:3-4). If we love the world then the love of the Father is not in us (See I John 2:15). If we do righteousness, then we are born of Him (See I John 2:29). If we are born of God, we do not purposely sin or make a habit of sinning (See 1 John 3:9). That should do away with the idea that we continue to struggle for years with the same sins of worry, anxiety, fear, depression, and many other sins now categorized as illnesses. Where is the new life in Christ? We need to help people to know if they are truly God’s precious children then we should be helping them to put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ immediately. Yet, the lukewarm church has constant, non-ending counseling allowing them to remain as little more than babies in Christ or of a carnal mind which is an enmity to God. We pray Lord that you awaken the lukewarm church. It’s time we threw the heretical teaching out of the lukewarm church and become the true Church. Let us experience the miracle of miracles, our new life in Christ. Amen

We Are the Faithful Remnant

As we draw closer to the end no one will doubt the increase in wickedness and the power of Satan. They won’t doubt the destruction of humanity and our home, planet Earth. We would all have to be blind to miss what is happening all around us. However, what most will not easily admit is how difficult it is to stay pure in an impure world. They will not easily admit their tremendous struggle with the things they see and hear in the world. There is a growing group within all of Christianity that admits to this struggle and have banded together through small groups in churches, in business and on Social Media to support one another in prayer and mutual encouragement. By way of introduction, we are the faithful remnant. Some have referred to their selves as the remnant army, but whatever we call ourselves our goals are the same to stay holy in a wicked world that’s being slowly destroyed from within.

We are the faithful remnant. Our allegiance is to Jesus Christ alone above any organization established by self-righteous man. We see clearly the polarization taken place in the world and within Christendom. Some of the faithful remnant may remain in their respective groups, organizations, and churches but they sense the difference. They know that their faith is different. It’s more radical and focused on God alone. They know those things in the world that tug on their faith. They have learned those things in the world that want to interrupt their time with the indwelling Spirit. They have learned to control their emotions but also how to embrace the positive emotions to the glory of God. They also long for and expect the transformation to take place in their lives. Finally, we are not a cult by anyone’s standards because we stay within the groups that we were called. If we came out of the group, the organization or the Church, we would no longer be considered a remnant. We are not divisive, nor do we entertain a split.

We are the faithful remnant. No matter what happens in the future our faith grows stronger every day. Yes, we hear the cries and the complaining. We hear the agony of others who are ready to give up their holy pilgrimage and just be good to their selves and plunge into the many social activities or entertainment the world has to offer. We hear their excuses for not redeeming the time; for not taking the time to walk with God in the Spirit. On the other hand, we of the faithful remnant relish those times of quiet solitude in the Spirit that can last for hours. It’s not just another religious duty, it’s life in the Spirit. When things happen we may experience all the same negative emotions as the world, but they are very short lived. As we turn to the Lord we have learned how to dissipate fear, anxiety, anger, wrath, and even a momentary lapse of depression. We have embraced all the positive emotions of each of the Spiritual fruits and especially love, even for our enemies.

We are the faithful remnant. We long for the transformation and expect it. So, we don’t look back on our previous life before we knew Christ because we know those things have passed away. We don’t even dwell on past failures, because we know that we have been forgiven and as far as God is concerned it no longer exists. We hear the world tell us how they have discovered their personality type and are eager to live up to it, on the other hand we know and believe that our personality is changing every day to be more like our Savior Jesus Christ. We hear the world say that they can never change who they are because some counselor told them they would always struggle with the same psychological problem for the rest of their life. We say that God has already delivered us from our past life and its multitude of problems, now we have this bountiful life in Him to the glory of God. As the world grows more-evil and trapped in their old lives, we are growing and becoming more like Christ every day. We are being transformed.

We are the faithful remnant. When we come before Lord in the Spirit it makes little difference of our surroundings. If we are in a small hut in the deepest part of the jungle, the prison cell, on death row or in the comfort of our home, it makes little difference if we are in the Spirit, the safest and happiest place to be. We have been accused of being too Holy or being too extreme in our Christian pilgrimage, for we bear in our body the marks of Christ in our fight against the real enemy of our souls. Every vain imagination and immoral thought that has been cast at us by the enemy, but we have successfully repelled them to the glory of God. We have also repelled the hateful and threatening words spoken to us by the heathen encouraged by the enemy. Our emotions are still intact and the joy of things to come still enters our hearts. We have remained faithful. The prayer that’s always on our lips is that God will strengthen the inner man to stand firm as we see the many signs of His coming all around us. From blood moons to earthquakes we are ready. May we, your faithful remnant always be Holy and righteous in the Lord singing praises to you out of our good conscience. Amen. We are the faithful remnant.

Posting the Indisputable Doctrines of The Faithful Remnant

When posting the indisputable doctrines of the faithful remnant it will cut clean across the fault lines of modern Christianity. As Martin Luther nailed the ninety-five theses to the door of the Catholic Church and later said “Here I stand, I can do no other,” we too must take our stand on the truth. As the world moves further away from the truth of God’s Word and seeks to live by its higher knowledge we have witnessed the moral decline of society. Unfortunately, many so-called Christians have joined with them creating open hostility against the faithful remnant, those who hold to these indisputable doctrines that are stated in this article. I have been personally attacked and threatened for the teachings that I so dearly hold onto with the same determination of those early Christians who took their stand against their persecutors. Please read carefully allowing God’s Holy Spirit to lead you to accept these truths and join the ranks of the faithful remnant. Then join me as we spread the truth to all those who have ears to hear. Here I stand, I can no other.

Most Christians believe that the devil exists. The differences arise in how much power they believe the devil has in our day. While some believe that the devil has no real power and rarely discuss him, there are others who believe that he is so powerful that he disrupts every single area of the believer’s life leading them to cast out devils from almost everyone, again and again. We believe that both these positions are extreme and miss the biblical admonition to stand against the wiles of the devil. It’s essential to understand just how powerful and deceptive these wiles are for the modern-day believer. (For a complete description of the wiles see my book “Stand Firm.”) This article will only concern the wiles that have put most of humanity into bondage including so-called believers or carnal Christians. These wiles are not new but have truly been here from the beginning when the devil tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden. The temptation was simple and direct, the devil said “Yea, hath God said? … for God doth know in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (See Genesis 3:2-5). This elevated knowledge of man or what man thinks he knows has put him into the proverbial driver’s seat or the seat of God. To ascend to an epic point in his pride where he thinks he knows more than God, which is idolatry.

Simply put, the devil is still attempting to lead God’s children to reject the promise of a new and better life without the intellectual help of fallen humanity. Jesus said, “The thief [talking about the devil] cometh not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). A bountiful life full of love for one another and a peace that defies understanding. A life that is no longer brought low by all the sin and stress in the world. A life that rises above all the emotional and psychological problems affecting fallen humanity. A new life that is made holy where truly old things pass away. This was echoed by the Apostle Paul who said, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17). This is the first indisputable doctrine for the faithful remnant. We believe if God can make us perfect in the beginning then He can also recreate us putting our feet on the path that leads to perfection without the help of self-righteous man. We have no reason to fear transformation. We not only believe it, we expect it. So, we search the Scripture to see how to experience this new life, how to enter into it, and how to enjoy all its promises without the world’s counsel.

This leads us to the second indisputable doctrine of the faithful remnant. We believe that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness. We believe in the sufficiency of Scripture. The Bible says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 1:3). That should settle it for most believers, but it doesn’t. They simply do not believe that God has given us all the information we need for living this new life in Christ. They figure that this is a new day and God does not have all the answers, so we must rely on fallen humanity to come up with the solutions. Well, we have seen how that has worked out! Since humanity has turned away from trusting in God alone it has sought the world’s counsel, caused a drug epidemic, greatly increased the immorality in the world, and has brought it to the brink of destruction. On the other hand, the faithful remnant has sought to live by God’s Word alone without mixing in the half-truths of the devil. Remember, it’s the devil who comes to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.

Although the Bible is replete with instructions on how to put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ (See Ephesians 4:17 – 5:33), we have been given the Holy Spirit as a seal of our new life to grow us from one degree of glory to another. This is the next indisputable doctrine of the faithful remnant. Unlike the teachings of the world that keeps fallen humanity in bondage to their old life with a static personality that can never change, we have a dynamic personality that is in a constant flux of change becoming more like Jesus Christ. Furthermore, the Holy Spirit leads us into all truth (see John 16:13) producing ever manner of spiritual fruit to the glory of God (See Galatians 5:22-23). As we continue to grow spiritually in this new life every believer receives spiritual gifts to be used for building up the body of Christ (see I Corinthians 12). Friends, it is God through our faith that brings forth change in the believer’s life. The Bible says, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord” (II Corinthians 3:18). Amen! The old life with all its old struggles with sin and hurts are passing away. We learn how to forgive and forget. We learn how to let go of the past and press on to the upward calling in Christ Jesus our Lord (see Philippians 3:14). Of course, if you don’t believe these indisputable doctrines of the faithful remnant and turn back to the world for its counsel and psychiatric drugs then it will not happen for you. You will remain stuck in the past, stuck in your old life, and stuck in bondage to the enemy – the old devil.

I hope that you have seen so far that each of these doctrines are indisputable for those of the faithful remnant that’s needed to stand against the wiles of the devil. The last indisputable doctrine is that God only gave us one way to the new life in Christ and that is through His Son Jesus Christ. What He did on the Cross paid the price for all our sins, past, present and future. When He arose from the grave on the third day He paved the way to a new life in Him demonstrated so beautifully through believer’s baptism. We believe that nothing in this world can add any truth to our new life. The disciplines of psychology and psychiatry can add nothing to our new life. The discipline of philosophy and higher learning can add nothing to our new life. New age thinking, and other world religions can add nothing to our new life. There is no other discipline. There is no other path. There is no other God. All other paths lead straight to hell. In the last days most of humanity including many who claim to know Christ will not accept these indisputable doctrines. They will continue getting their worldly counsel and psychiatric drugs unable to experience all the blessings of the new life in Christ. When Christ returns He will only know those who are living their new Life-in-Christ. Here I stand, I can do no other.
