Posting the Indisputable Doctrines of The Faithful Remnant (Video)

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. Our featured vocalists are Cindy Tilkns Jennings, Lynda Sturdevant and Paula Disbrow. After watching the video please share with others.

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.

God Speaks to Me and I Am Not Insane (Video)

Contrary to public opinion, God speaks to me and I am not insane. In fact, God has been speaking to humans since the time of creation. So, to have an individual in our day claiming that a person hearing Jesus or God to be insane is not only sad but shows themselves to be an unbeliever resting under the wrath of God and eternal damnation. To claim that God does not communicate with His beloved creation is to put them in league with the devil. Join me in a movement to let our voices be heard to a deaf and dying world that says, “God Speaks to Me Too and I Am Not Insane. After watching the video please share with others.

God Speaks to Me and I Am Not Insane

Contrary to public opinion, God speaks to me and I am not insane. In fact, God has been speaking to humans since the time of creation. The first incident was recorded in the Old Testament of the Bible when God spoke to man. The Bible says, “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Genesis 2:16-17). Man and woman were both created perfectly after the image of God. Their bodies were designed to live hundreds and hundreds of years. The Bible says that Methuselah lived to be 969 years old. Only modern man with his so called higher learning tries to explain this away in his theory of evolution. Their cognitive ability was also amazing in that man was able to name all the living creatures in the world and determined that none were considered as a suitable help mate. The assumption is that he could also recall their names. The Bible says, “And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him” (Genesis 2:20).

They also had the great ability to keep and maintain, no doubt a most beautiful garden in all creation, unlike the humans we hear about that evolved from the stone age man. The Bible says, “And the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it” (Genesis 2:15). They were also made in God’s image, no doubt very intelligent, which required both speaking and listening. The Bible records one of many conversations between God and man, one in particular is of great interest because it shows personality and depth of conversation. Let’s listen in, the Bible says, “And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?” (Genesis 3:9-11). Of course, the conversation continued for some time with man first blaming the woman who God had given to him, so in essence blaming God as well. Then the woman chimed in by blaming the serpent (or the old devil), where at that point God communicated the punishment for both the man and the woman and the serpent. Don’t think for a moment that man and woman created by God can’t hear His words.

This two-way communication continued for thousands of years with select individuals, prophets and priests. the Bible says, “Thus saith the Lord” became a common refrain in the Old Testament spoken by select men who spoke for God as His mouth piece. From Moses and Aaron down through the centuries to include Kings, Priests and Prophets who all spoke to others what they had heard directly from God. Then with the coming of Jesus Christ and the offer of salvation for all of humanity communication between God and man became possible for any who had faith. The Bible says, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27). A whole book could be written just on this one verse. But suffice it to say that true followers of Christ can discern if the voice they hear is from Christ or their own vain imagination. As true believers we can easily discern if the voice is from God or from the devil. The point is we can and do hear the voice of our Great Shepherd and it’s quite appalling that someone would question the mental stability of millions of people and if all the people were added throughout the centuries the number would be in the billions.

With the coming of the Holy Spirit communication with God became even more intimate. The voice of God came quietly through the Spirit along with a warming in the heart or what we as Christians consider as the touch of God. We all desire that divine touch that’s sweeter than the honeycomb that stops time it self allowing us to momentarily bask in the divine light of His glory. The touch that brings back a faint memory or a word from Holy Scripture allowing us to experience an incredibly unexpected union with God. The divine touch that allows us to arise above our pain and suffering as if they never existed feeling a great inner strength of renewal. Praise God for His divine touch that often accompanies the voice of God. To say that we cannot hear the voice of God is beyond reproach especially if we are labeled as insane for hearing God. One of the wonders of coming to Christ in faith is hearing the word of God and feeling His divine touch. As a pastor for many years I have personally witnessed this when people surrendered their lives to God and His authority over them. When they recounted that God was indeed speaking to their heart. Furthermore, every true preacher only preaches and teaches what they receive directly from God.

So, to have an individual in our day claiming that a person hearing Jesus or God to be insane is not only sad but shows themselves to be an unbeliever resting under the wrath of God and eternal damnation. To claim that God does not communicate with His beloved creation is to put them in league with the devil. So, I conclude by asking every person reading or listening to this article as a Tribulation Radio Show to pray earnestly for this un-named individual that God will open their eyes and also their ears to His divine voice. Let them apologize to God publicly and let the children rejoice. Join me in a me-too movement to let our voices be heard to a deaf and dying world that we do hear God and we are not insane. Amen

In conclusion, it only takes one person making this outrageous statement that a Christian claiming to hear God is insane. This may very well open Pandora’s Box for others to make similar statements leading a national movement against Christianity. A movement that in time will require every Christian to undergo psychological counseling and the administering of psychiatric drugs to cure their supposed mental illness. Therefore, I implore Christians everywhere to join me in a new movement of proclaiming to the world that God speaks to me TOO and I am not insane. Say it wherever you go, God speaks to me too and I am not insane. Post it on Social Media, put on your signs, write it in your emails, and speak to your friends … let the world know that God speaks to ME TOO and I am not insane.

The Silent Majority Needs to Stop Being Silent (Video)

For years we have heard about the silent majority and I have wondered as of late why must they remain silent. It’s reported that President Nixon first used the term back in the sixties. Then another popular term arose ten years later called the moral majority, which I might add, has also remained silent. On the other hand, it is the fringe groups of heathenisms that we hear the most about, leading many to think that they are the majority. Well, they are not! So, it’s past time! The silent majority needs to stop being silent. A very wise person once said, “It’s far easier to kill a terrorist than to slay an ideology …”. What we are fighting and need to raise our voice about is education, because an ideology is built and maintained with education. This has been proved time and again …
