Standing Firm In Christ's Activity

  1. Standing Firm In Christ added a post in a topic Salvation Confusion   

    We really should know who is, and who isn't, saved in our assemblies.  The Bible tells us to know those that labour amongst us. 

    Churches are more and more looking like the world, because the world has been invited into the Church instead of the Church going out into the world.  The unsaved are brought in with all their sinful luggage, and none in the congregation, nor in the pulpit seems to care any more. 

    As you say, it is all about the numbers.  We need more "Paul's" that will write the assemblies and instruct them with the Word of the Lord to separate themselves from their wicked fellows.  We need more who will tell the assembled to "Come out from amongst them and be ye separate, saith the Lord.  And you will be sons and daughters to me and I will be a Father unto you."

    Not sure it is addressing believers.  
    If they don't turn from the company they keep, they could not be sons and daughters.  Nor would they be received by God.
    doesn't sound like they are saved at all.  The saved are received of God.  The saved are sons and daughters.  God will not reject the saved.

    I would agree with wretched.  I believe it is impossible for a saved person to totally deny God.  Jeremiah tried it, but couldn't.
    Jeremiah 20:9 (KJV) 9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But [his word] was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not [stay].
    How much more impossible is it for the saved, who, when disobedient, are chastened by the Lord?  How much more difficult to deny a God who promised to never leave, nor forsake him/her?  How utterly impossible, for one who has the seal of the Spirit of the living God, to walk away from God completely.
    Edited to add:  If one is able to walk away, embracing the world and its sinful pleasures with no conviction whatsoever, that one never truly had the Spirit of God abiding in him/her to begin with.
    1 John 2:19 (KJV) 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would [no doubt] have continued with us: but [they went out], that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

    According to beenverified, he lived with his mother. (Or possibly aunt?)  every address she has lived at in last 20 years, his name is listed at that address as well.

    The pastor had been voted out before. Four years ago, if I remember correctly.  Yet, despite the fact that he was voted out by the congregation, he refused to leave.  
    Even after being voted out this time, he did his best to keep the Church by getting restraining orders against Genora Hamm Biggs two biggest supporters.  If he could get them away from the Church, he could bully his way back into the pulpit.
    there may be criminal charges brought against him for getting the restraining orders after he was voted out.

    Among many denominations today, there is a rising belief that repentance is nothing more than a change of mind about who God is. In other words, the general consensus is that when God tells us to "Repent" it only involves a change of mind.
    But is that what repentance is? Or is it something more? I submit that it is something more.
    Let's look at it in this way. Suppose I wanted to to to McDonalds to buy a Filet-O-Fish. I ask my wife to drive me as I don't have a license. Half-way there, I have a change of mind and decide I would rather have a Meatball Sub from Subway. Now, if I had a change of mind, would I continue to McDonalds?
    Of course not!
    I would tell my wife to drive to the Subway instead.
    Repentance is a change of mind that results in a change of action.
    We see this in the book of Revelation. In Chapter two, we read:
    Revelation 2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
    Now, was God saying to have a change of mind about her fornication, but to continue in that direction?
    Absolutely not!  God wanted her to turn from her sinful ways.
    And the very next verse reveals that God does not just want a change of mind...
    Revelation 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
    He wants a change of action as well. He wanted those in allegiance with the woman to repent of their deeds... their actions.
    If one believes that repentance is merely a change of mind about who God is, that one is deceived into believing a lie.

    Obviously not just a changing of mind.  They were to forsake, to turn away from idolatry, or they would not be accepted.

    2 Corinthians 6:14 (KJV) 14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
    2 Corinthians 6:15 (KJV) 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
    2 Corinthians 6:16 (KJV) 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
    2 Corinthians 6:17 (KJV) 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,
    2 Corinthians 6:18 (KJV) 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
    Sure looks like some of the Corinthians had to do some repenting, or they would not be sons and daughters.  Of interest, although they are identified as saints and brethren by the Apostle Paul, they still are not sons and daughters.  God said He would not even be a Father to them until they turned from their present walk.

    scissors or electric clippers work well.
    2 Samuel 14:26 (KJV)
    And when he polled his head, (for it was at every year's end that he polled [it]: because [the hair] was heavy on him, therefore he polled it:) he weighed the hair of his head at two hundred shekels after the king's weight.

    "1,000's" implies two or more thousand.

    Quite a remarkable amount of people.  Since you are so knowledgeable of the number of people that Anderson has "led to the Lord," how about providing proof of your claim?  Who are these "1,000's of people"? 

    Seriously, I know you really do not have such knowledge, unless you are Anderson himself? 

    However, given the hatred that I have heard from Anderson's sermons on more than one occasion, (remember his stating that he prays that Obama is killed?) I highly doubt Anderson has led anyone to the Lord at all.  He may have presented a false christ to people and people ate it up, but that he led them to the God of the Bible?  I highly doubt it.

    Not every eye will see Him in 1 Thessalonians 4.  He will be in the clouds, not on the Earth for people to see.

    Zechariah 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    Two different events.  1 Thessalonians 4 will happen first.  Why?  Because we rise to meet the Lord in the air.  We don't meet Him on the Earth.  The then takes us to His Father's House as promised in John 14:1-3.  While we are with Him at the Father's House, the bowls of wrath will be poured out on the Earth.  After all is completed concerning God's wrath on mankind, Jesus will return and set up His millennial Kingdom.

    Then, by that definition of "socialism", Jesus was indeed a socialist.

    I'm not convinced that Ananias and Sapphira did promise to give "x" amount.  Look at the context...

    Acts 4:32-37 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus, Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet.

    What must be considered here?

    That there was a multitude that believed.
    Of those that believed that own houses and land, the houses and land was sold.
    And the price was laid at the Apostle's feet.

    Those that believed who had land laid the price at the Apostle's feet.  Ananias and Sapphira are not among those that believed.  We can see this, because those that believed and had land and houses to sell, laid the price at the feet of the Apostles. 

    But a certain man named Ananias, with Saphira his wife,...

    I believe they were not of the multitude that believed.  But sawsomething going on amongst the Beleivers and wanted to act as if they were of that multitude.

    Not a big mystery Bro.  
    The whale was carried to the mountains by one of the 450 tall giants in the book of Enoch.  There, a storm arose, and the giant went looking for shelter, forgetting where he lefy that whale.  RoFL
    sounds as plausible as any fairy tale scientists can concoct.
