.

I am not a man pleaser..

.

The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. Proverbs 29:25

.

“O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth.”   (Psalm 8:1)

.

Psalm 5:12  For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

.

Psalm 109:28  Let them curse, but You bless; When they arise, they shall be ashamed, But Your servant shall be glad.

.

Luke 11 28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

.

Luke 12 31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

.

Acts 5 29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

.

Romans 8 34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

.

Galatians 4 9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

.

1 Timothy 1 4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.

.

1 Timothy 4 7 But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.

.

Hebrews 11 25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Matthew 7:21-23

.

Let the people praise Thee o Lord, let all the people praise Thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase, and God, even our God, shall bless us. God shall bless us: and all the ends of the earth shall fear Him. Amen. psalm 67: 5-7.

.

“Pray without ceasing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

.

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others; if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)— if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment. This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. 2 Peter 2:4-10

.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4: 12-16

.

where sin abounds, His grace abounds much more. (Romans 5:20)

.

Obviously to me as not being  sincere  some people often ask me why they have had so much struggles, difficulties, oppressions in their life.. and they also do say that they are good persons who have done so many good things too.. as if they did not know the answer..

.

Matthew 19:7  there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

.

Psalms 68:6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

.

If you do your own thing do not expect God to still bless, protect, heal you..

.

Are you a real , a Holy Spirit filled  Christian or just another one of the much too  many  mere imposter, pretender still ..   for if you are not yet also  holy Spirit filled you are none of his still.. Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

.

So do start to humbly  pray, read the Bible and stop being a Christian Pretender, imposter now..

.

The common definition of eternal security is, once a person becomes saved by the grace of God he will ALWAYS remain saved does not hold water. Hence, that is why this teaching is often called once saved always saved. The rest of the eternal security definition, though usually unspoken but understood, is that  Eternal security (once saved always saved) is for most people a continual false license to justify their still immorality . Clearly these people have not even made Jesus Christ the sole Lord of their life, but are living a mainly self centered, carnal life still too.

.

That any Christian will remain saved regardless how far he backslides and plunges into sin, becomes lukewarm and unforgiving, bears no fruit, disowns Jesus and/or apostatizes doctrinally even to the point of becoming an atheist, etc. is all rubbish!

.

If one was ever saved, at any point in his life, he will remain saved and his salvation is never jeopardized under any circumstances, is rubbish too.

.

Though popular, eternal security is a demonic  ear-tickling poisonous LIE often wrongly taught under grace, the infinite work of Christ and Jesus’ blood, which has undeniably caused MULTITUDES of unwary Christians to lower their guard and fall prey to a spiritual death. And even to falsely deny the work, gifts of Holy Spirit as they do not supposedly need him to be enable to live a holy Christian life now too..

.

Such twice lost people also do not recognize their vital need of full repentance for salvation and the forsaking of all sins through out all of their life.. . So some times they will still refer to themselves falsely  as a Christian alcoholic, Christian addicted to pornography, a Christian sinner, etc.

.

Such people are actually described in 2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the daytime. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

.

And yes they are still spiritually blinded. Yes we are initially saved by grace (Eph. 2:8,9) but we can all next still fall from grace (Gal. 5:2-4). We are justified by faith (Rom. 5:1) but our faith can become shipwrecked (1 Tim. 1:19,20) and  it can cease to exist (Lk. 8:13; Rom. 11:19-23). We are not under the law (Rom. 6:14,15) but if you live according to the sinful nature you will die (Rom. 8:13).

.

Apostle Paul taught against legalism (Gal. 5:3,4) but he also taught that no immoral, impure or greedy person has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God (Eph. 5:5-7). We are not saved by works (Eph. 2:8,9) but to reap eternal life and not destruction you must sow to please the Spirit and not the sinful nature (Gal. 6:8,9). God is faithful to us (1 Jn. 1:9; 1 Cor. 10:13) but we must be faithful to him to the very end of our lives to escape the lake of fire or second death (Rev. 2:10,11). lose salvationGod surely loves us (Jn. 3:16; Mk. 10:21; Rom. 8:35-39) but those who inherit the kingdom of God love God (Jam 2:5; 1 Cor. 2:9) and to love God means to obey his commands (Jn. 14:15; 1 Jn. 5:3). We have freedom in Christ (Gal. 5:1) but this freedom is not to indulge the sinful nature (Gal. 5:13; 1 Pet 2:16). God is always still to be obeyed and feared.  Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

.

Now undeniably I have encountered many self confessed once loudly professing Christians, now clearly demon possessed ones,  who admitted to me that  they have abandoned their Christian faith, no longer practise it, even because God had not done all they had originally expected he would do for them.. thier’s was,  is a self centered , carnal, sinful unforgiven Christianity still ..

.

Matthew 10 22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

.

John 6 27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

.

James 1 12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

.

1 Corinthians 9 27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

.

Hebrews 12 9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

.

But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. . . . As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit–just as it has taught you, remain in him.  1 John 2:20, 27

.

In 1 John 2:20 and 27, the apostle John contrasts the anointing of true believers—that is, Christians—with that of unbelievers, who are called anti-Christians or antichrists. Both Christians and anti-Christians are anointed, but there is a difference: Christians are anointed with a holy anointing while anti-Christians are anointed with an unholy anointing. In other words, true believers in Jesus Christ are anointed by the Holy Spirit, but anti-Christians are anointed with an evil spirit, which causes them to deny the apostolic doctrine of the person and work of Jesus Christ. According to 1 John 4:1, anti-Christians are false prophets, pseudoprophêtai. They are anointed, not of God, but of the devil and, therefore, they will only prophesy lies and falsehoods. In this study we would like to examine the differences between these anointings and speak about how to ensure we have the holy anointing.

.

The Greek word for anointing is chrisma, from which we have the word chrism. Chrisma appears several times in 1 John 2:20 and 27.Additionally, we find a word christianos in Acts 11:26, which means “one belonging to the Anointed One,”

.

A FULL HONEST SALVATION GOSPEL INCLUDES BOTH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOR AND ALSO JESUS CHRIST AS HOLY SPIRIT BAPTIZER.

.

The word christos means a person   HOLY SPIRIT  anointed  . The Greek name for an individual “Christos” rendered “Christ” in Scripture, the basic of the term Christian now as well, comes from the Greek word “chrio” means to anoint with oil, the symbol of the Holy Spirit, one can tell if any person is a Christian cause they also can see the evidence of the holy spirit’s anointing.. so now we all can be anointed one inspectors of all Christians now too. Disciples of Jesus Christ were first called “Christians” in Antioch (Acts 11:26) because evidentially their behavior, activity, and speech were anointed, Christ like. (Acts 10:38 KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

.

Sadly too Fundamentalist ,Evangelicals, Pentecostals, Charismatics, and other Protestants tend now to define “Christians” include only those persons who have been “born again”  neglecting them as also needing to be  filled with the  Holy Spirit as well.

.

Luke 4:18-19 (Wey) [Jesus:] “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to proclaim Good News to the poor; He has sent me to announce release to the prisoners of war and recovery of sight to the blind: to send away free those whom tyranny has crushed, to proclaim the year of acceptance with the Lord.”

.

But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. . . . As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit–just as it has taught you, remain in him. 1 John 2:20, 27

.

James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

.

James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

.

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

.

1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

.

1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

.

DO YOU EVEN NOW HAVE A REAL CLOSE  PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST?  HOW DO YOU KNOW?

.

We can only have a close relationship with Jesus Christ “IF” we now do much more than study His New testament, His  teachings, as we need to also admit daily all of our sins, humbly pray for forgiveness, and also to accept Jesus Christ as the sole Lord of our life, but  also be filled with the Holy Spirit for a start.. Many people know about Jesus but they still really do not know him personally thus..

.

Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

.

Exodus 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous  God

.

Leviticus 25:17 Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am the LORD your God.

36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.

.

NOW ALSO MANY PEOPLE CLAIM THEY DO NOT WORSHIP ANY IDOLS BUT TOO OFTEN still AN IDOL WORSHIPPER THESE DAYS IS SOMEONE WHO WORSHIPS THE CHURCH PASTOR, THEIR DENOMINATION, THEIR SPOUSE, THEIR CHILDREN, THEIR GRAND CHILDREN, THEIR JOB, THEIR DEGREES, THEIR HOUSE, CAR, THEIR PRESIDENT, THEIR COUNTRY, THEIR HEALTH, THE BIBLE,   AND NOT JUST MONEY AND THE THINGS IT CAN BUY..
