Are You Fit for the Kingdom? (Video)

Jesus Christ stated that some people simply aren’t fit for the Kingdom. What? Yes, that’s correct! Until they change their way of thinking, they are not fit for the kingdom. This has proven to be a huge problem in today’s world. Many have come into the church without changing their way of thinking. They have come into the church and have expected, no demanded, that the church change its way of thinking to fit their interests and desires. After the video on my secure website, please share it with others.

Are You Fit for the Kingdom?

Jesus Christ stated that some people simply aren’t fit for the Kingdom. What? Yes, that’s correct! Until they change their way of thinking, they are not fit for the kingdom. This has proven to be a huge problem in today’s world. Many have come into the church without changing their way of thinking. They have come into the church and have expected, no demanded, that the church change its way of thinking to fit their interests and desires. They have memorized the Bible stories, some favorite verses of Scripture, learned many of their praise songs, and have learned well how to play church but have not changed their way of thinking. They have entered the church and have set their hands to the plough to do the Lord’s work in the kingdom, but they are not fit for the kingdom. Why? Let’s listen to the words of Jesus. “And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62). So, looking back is the problem. That is, looking at their own interests, their own agenda, and their own expectations based on the humanistic knowledge of their previous life.

In the first illustration our Lord gives, He indicates that the man was not prepared for the new life. Although the man said he was prepared to follow Christ wherever He went, Christ had perceived that his old life of comfort, familiarity, and his years of assimilated knowledge would be too difficult for him to leave (See verse 57, 58). He would not be prepared for the tremendous changes in his lifestyle that would lie ahead. He would not be prepared to jettison all of his accumulated knowledge in exchange for the vast amount of true wisdom in the Bible, a completely new way of thinking, and an amazingly different way of looking at things. Like most people coming into the church today, they want to bring with them the accumulated knowledge from the professionals of psychology along with a mixture of other world religions, political bias, and a legion of information from the school of hard knocks. Here’s the problem! They are not much interested in dumping all this worldly knowledge but are much more interested in trying to assimilate it with God’s truth.

We live in a world that has over-analyzed every minute detail of life filling up volumes upon volumes to explain man’s behavior, his emotions, and his psychological problems. This new knowledge is being taught in every area of society from the cradle to the grave. It’s in our entertainment, from the movies we watch to the music we listen to, and to the books we read. It’s in public education from the earliest grades to our most prestigious schools of higher learning. It has also taken a prominent role in the workplace from hiring guidelines to required tests for employment to guidance for management and employees. This new knowledge has even gained a significant foothold in the churches of every religion, and specifically Christianity. To the average person living today this new knowledge has become essential for understanding and managing all of their challenges, their sorrows, and their many problems in life. This new knowledge has become so assimilated into the mindset of humanity that most people including Christians are left only with the professionals of this age in psychology to help them when things get too difficult to manage on their own. Unfortunately, the church no longer counsels only from God’s Holy Word, but integrates information from the professional into their counseling sessions or simply refers their flock to them directly.

After a decade of dismal failure that’s literally ripping the world apart humanity needs to jettison this corrupt knowledge from psychology and follow Jesus Christ who offers them a treasure trove of biblical wisdom to reshape their thinking process, to overcome every obstacle, along with every emotional and psychological problem. Although this wisdom is absolutely free, it takes faith believing that Jesus Christ is the only Way to a new life, a life more abundantly. Although this biblical wisdom will transform your life, it must be applied to your life by completely throwing out the old belief system that’s captured the entire world. The Bible talks about putting off the old life (See Ephesians 4:22-24), which includes our wrong thinking and impure thoughts. Wrong thinking and impure thoughts inevitably lead to bad behavior and a multitude of emotional and psychological problems. Moreover, wrong thinking and impure thoughts lead to what the Bible calls sin and its consequences of eternal damnation. Clearly, to put our hand to the proverbial plough and look back by seeking the world’s knowledge to solve our problems will make us unfit for the kingdom. We must let go of the world’s corrupt knowledge. In essence, we must die to self, allowing God to make us into a beautiful new creation (See II Corinthians 5:17).

Unfortunately, many will not make that commitment. They are like the other two illustrations that Jesus Christ uses (See verses 59-61). They both had ready excuses as to why they could not follow Christ and make the needed commitment to become one of His disciples. Yes, applying God’s truth to our life is the most difficult part. It’s difficult to change your way of thinking and acting, especially the thinking part! Believe me, it’s much easier to stop those more obvious sins that even the fallen world frowns upon, rather than those secret sins of the mind. Instead of offering excuses, pulling back, or running away we need to study all 121 commands in the New Testament that describe the new life in Christ. Obedience is application. Every step of the way the indwelling Spirit will encourage you as God’s Grace empowers you. Don’t put it off. It’s time to apply all of God’s truth to your life, which is ONLY possible if we stop believing the lies or the old knowledge that’s captured the world. We live in a world that’s obsessed with looking back on the knowledge that they have previously assimilated, while the world around them is falling apart. Professing themselves to be wise they have become a little more than fools. Make an assertive effort today to apply only God’s truth to your life. You will be happy that you did.

“And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62).

Are You Following a Blind Guide? (Video)

For the first time in world history, there is a multitude of blind guides in every segment of secular society and religious life promising to guide you into an enlightened truth. With all these guides in our world today we are forced to ask the question, “Which one has eyesight to see the whole truth?” After watching the video my secure website, please share with others.

Are You Following a Blind Guide?

For the first time in world history, there is a multitude of blind guides in every segment of secular society and religious life promising to guide you into an enlightened truth. With all these guides in our world today we are forced to ask the question, “Which one has eyesight to see the whole truth?” To be partially blind to the truth, or mixing truth with a lie, still makes you a blind guide leading your followers into the pit of inevitable consequences of following a lie. A true word from Jesus Christ is not to let these blind guides overcome you or cause you anxiety (See Matthew 15:14). With God’s help, we can confront all these lies from every source in both society and religious life as they are brought before us through listening or reading. This is possible my dear friends, if we truly hide God’s Word in our hearts and learn how to listen to the indwelling Spirit. When we do this, we will be able to expose and confront every lie. We will also be able to free those who have been taken captive to follow the lies of the enemy.

Of course, if we don’t do anything to confront the lies, then things will only go from bad to worse in this country and around the world. For those who have eyes to see, we have already seen God’s wrath being poured out on fallen humanity for some time now. We have seen reoccurring epidemics and we will continue to see them get even more deadly and widespread. We have already seen great forest fires that have wiped out entire towns and with the heat index on the rise, due to the consequences of man’s sins, then even greater conflagrations are on the horizon engulfing larger cities in monstrous flames of the roaring fire. We have seen smaller earthquakes traumatize entire communities, it won’t be too long before we see larger and more devastating earthquakes paralyze great sections of our country bringing both death and massive destruction. We could go on, but the point is clear until God’s beloved children rise up to confront the blind guides with the whole truth then things will only get worse. Moreover, things will get worse contrary to who’s the president or whatever new laws and global agreements are passed.

Have you hidden God’s truth in your heart, so that you can expose and confront the lies of the world? Let’s see if that’s so. Most lies from the entertainment industry are carefully knit together as subtle lies in every movie they produce. They almost never miss an opportunity to push the lie of evolution that removes God as the Creator. Evolution destroys the fact that everything was created perfect in the beginning (See Genesis 1:31). Friends, man is not getting better, he’s getting worse. The decline in actual intelligence and memory of historical events is beyond the pale. We can easily see the incompetence in every area of society. We are not evolving but devolving. For some time now the big screen has also been pushing homosexuality and sex before marriage. They have shamelessly ignored God’s Word that homosexuals will receive the due penalty for their error (See Romans 1:27). They have covertly removed God’s law that says marriage between one man and one woman should be consecrated before sex (See I Corinthians 7:2). We must expose the lies coming out of Hollywood by proclaiming the truth. In public education, it’s less subtle when they teach their lies. They teach that abortion is not really killing a child by removing God’s foreknowledge of the child in the Mother’s womb as he’s being formed (See Jeremiah 1:5). It’s less subtle when they teach that small children can choose their own gender when it was God who made woman out of the rib of the first man, Adam, so that he could have a helpmate; so that the two shall become one flesh, fulfilling His command to be fruitful and multiply (See Genesis 2:18,24; 1:28). Our gender was uniquely designed by God to fulfill this command. How is this possible if we change our gender? We must confront the lies of public education by proclaiming the truth.

Many of the lies preached from the pulpits of America are destroying the foundation of classic Christianity. One of the biggest lies is that God is the same in every world religion. How can the God of love be the same god that teaches his followers to kill people in cold blood, chop off their heads, and subject their women to excessive cruelty? On the other hand, our God of love teaches us to turn the other cheek, go the extra mile, and consider others better than ourselves (See Matthew 5:39, 41; Philippians 2:3). This lie has destroyed the exclusiveness of Christianity. Remember that Jesus Christ said emphatically, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one cometh to the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). We must expose the lies in religious life by proclaiming the truth. Another lie is that God did not give us everything we need for life and godliness, so we need their worldly counseling techniques and their pathetic drugs in an attempt to cure their increasing number of diagnosis of psychological problems. In so doing, they have destroyed the sufficiency of Scripture that clearly 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). As new creations (see II Corinthians 5:17) it is essential that we have all the necessary knowledge to confront every problem faced by humanity in the way of emotional and psychological problems. It’s essential that we are transformed in Christ so that we will have the power to confront the lies in religious life by proclaiming the truth. To do so my friend, will deliver many from spiritual blindness and the pit of eternal damnation.

To expose and confront the lies of the world we must listen to and obey, yes, I said to obey, the voice of the indwelling Spirit. Let me say first, and very importantly, that the indwelling Spirit will not contradict the Bible. He will uphold its truth by confirming it over and over again. So, how do we listen to the indwelling Spirit? A good place to begin is to confess your sins before a Holy God and quiet yourself before Him. That is, you cannot listen to the indwelling Spirit while you do all the thinking. Think not! And learn to listen to the still small voice of God through the Spirit. This will be the most difficult part for most because we love to think and keep on thinking until we drown our every voice but our own. If we properly quiet ourselves before the Lord, then it’s even possible to receive a short vision with its immediate interpretation. I have been listening to the indwelling Spirit for many years and I can tell you it almost always has something to do with our work for the Lord. The indwelling Spirit was not sent to be your prophetic looking glass, nor was He sent to tell you unrelated truth about your fascinations and inquiries. On the other hand, in the course of our work, we may see the prophetic and we will see and understand deeper truths beyond anything we could have imagined. Primarily, however, His job is to lead you to expose and confront the lies of the world with His truth. Won’t you join Him today in this great task or will you remain quiet as the entire world is being led astray by their blind guides? The choice is yours.

Finding Our Way in a World of Confusion (Video)

In the beginning, Christianity was called the Way because it showed those living in darkness how to find their way to the light. Unfortunately, we once again have lost our way as the whole world stumbles around in darkness with little power and no direction. Once again, we have become like little children seeking to learn the first principles of our faith. Instead of following the Way, … After watching the video on my secure website, please share with others.
