    “Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.” ( 1 Peter 4:16 )


    The word “Christian” occurs only three times in Scripture and seems to have changed in its meaning from first to last. In the first instance, “the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch” ( More...

    By Ray Yungen  One of the main tenets of New Age thought is peace, goodwill, and the unity of all humanity. Remember, the Age of Aquarius is to be the Age of Oneness. In context with this idea, the New Age term cleansing is quite disturbing. A number of books make reference to those who […]

    Take the name of Jesus with you Love those lyrics !
    Precious name! Oh, how sweet!
    Hope of earth and joy of heav’n;
    Precious name! Oh, how sweet!
    Hope of earth and joy of heav’n
    I love the way “heav’n” is one syllable, too, but the main theme is Jesus’ name. There are verses that tell us how important His name is:

    And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. (Matthew 18:5 KJV )

    Now if you think children aren’t that important, how about:

    For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (Matthew 18:20 KJV )

    Of course, that’s preceded by agreeing here on earth. How many people are you able to agree with here on earth? If not here, how will we agree in heaven? If we have to change to do it there, why not change and do it here? Yes – even with people with whom we think we cannot agree. Try gathering in His name, none other.

    Sounds to me that non-Christians, doing something in His name have rewards:

    For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. (Mark 9:41 KJV )

    Now there are some people who will use this verse for their own purposes:

    If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. (John 14:14 KJV )

    Without taking into consideration the preceding verse:

    And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13 KJV )

    Who is in the best position to know what will or want glorify God? Yep – that’s the only answer. God knows. That’s why it’s best to include a commitment Jesus suggested:

    After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:9-10 KJV )

    He also used it in His prayer:

    And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt . (Matthew 26:39 KJV )

    He did not get a positive answer, but wasn’t hesitant about asking again:

    He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done . (Matthew 26:42 KJV )

    Most of us are not asked to die for others, so why can’t we use those words with that precious name?
    There is one tiny caveat, too:

    For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. (Matthew 24:5 KJV )

    When should we expect this to happen?

    And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:6-8 KJV )

    In this 24th chapter, Jesus has left the temple and is answering His disciples’ question about “When? How will we know?” Stick close to that precious name, seeking our Father’s will, and know that the end is not yet. We have work to do in His name.

    One of the most amazing anomalies in human life is the oft-repeated testimony to God’s grace and power unwittingly rendered by men who would dethrone Him if they could. Biblical examples are numerous.

  8. RSS Robot added a post in a topic: When Voices Say “Don’T Think!”   

    <img width="650" height="256" src=" '> " class="attachment-large wp-post-image" alt="dontthink" style="float:left; margin:0 15px 15px 0;" /><p>(<strong>Note:</strong> The context of this post is in regard to reading Christian writing and material related to understanding God’s Word as well as the thinking of the world around us. It is not in reference to fiction, entertainment, and other reading contexts.)</p>
    <p>I have two adopted Cambodian brothers. Their family escaped communist genocide in Cambodia in the early 1970’s. During those years, 3.5 million Cambodians were murdered—slaughtered. Do you know who the communists targeted? The educated. The leaders. The readers. The informed. They killed anybody that could think through the dangers of their movement. And along with it, they burned books, destroyed educational institutions, and armed rural, uneducated children. Communism didn’t want people to think.</p>
    <p>Recently, someone asked me about a few voices promoting a new doctrine—”Don’t read anybody but …” This is not a biblical message. Over 38 years of Christian life, I’ve been taught by thinking, biblical, godly men (that number in the hundreds.) All of them taught me “You can learn something from everyone!” They taught me to read everything I could. And they taught me biblical discernment. They gave a solid foundation of good doctrine, and encouraged me to be <em>widely</em> read, but also <em>wisely</em> read! They taught me to allow God’s Holy Spirit to give discernment and to guide into all truth. (John 16:13.)</p>
    <p>This new doctrine goes something like this, “Don’t read anybody but… (fill in the blank with your group.)” If you ever hear or see this—DANGER WILL R OB INSON!! DANGER!! Someone is attempting to be God to you. Someone, other than Jesus, is attempting to govern your thinking rather than equip your thinking. This is a HUGE overreach of biblical authority and influence—and men who teach this tread on God’s heritage. Biblical thinking is not reclusive or segregated—it’s immersive and discerning. Biblical thinking doesn’t think LESS it thinks MORE! It doesn’t read LESS, it reads MORE!</p>
    <p><em>“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 </em></p>
    <p>Don’t fall for this. It’s not old, it’s new. Ground yourself in God’s Word. Then READ! Read agreeing arguments. Read opposing arguments. Read everything in the light of God’s truth and with the discerning guidance of His Holy Spirit. Have an ANSWER for every man! Know their arguments and answer their arguments with TRUTH. Study their positions, know their beliefs, and at the same time wrap your brain around biblical truth that answers false teaching. Be available to be questioned!</p>
    <p><em>“Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.” Colossians 4:5, 6 </em></p>
    <p><em>“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:” 1 Peter 3:15 </em></p>
    <p><em>“These were more n OB le than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:11 </em></p>
    <p>If I am threatened by questions, I’m merely advertising that I don’t have a good answer. The Bible always gives a GOOD ANSWER for anything that’s TRUE.</p>
    <p>The reason many walk away from good doctrine is that they were not equipped to answer bad doctrine—they were taught N OT to think. “Not widely reading” is a sure way to kill your ability to discern and to ground yourself in truth. Being told “not to read… (fill in the blank)” is remarkably like Communism in 1970’s Cambodia.</p>
    <p>There are TWO ways to fall into error. <strong>The first is to read WITHOUT biblical discernment.</strong> This will leave you intellectually weak and easily deceived. It will lead into biblical error, not away from it. <strong>The second is to read only those with whom you agree.</strong> This leads you into an inbred error—an increasingly myopic, gradually diminishing world of “not thinking” and “not learning” where you have no choice but to stagnate and turn inward. Both are erroneous paths.</p>
    <p><strong>The biblical path of Christian wisdom is one of continued growth in God’s Word—which is in exhaustible—and continued understanding of the thinking/arguments of others whom you may persuade to embrace biblical truth.</strong> If you read only “your own”, how would you ever be salt and light to arguments you have never encountered and bad thinking for which you have no answer? How could you ever learn that which a “small, inner-circle of influence” does not know?</p>
    <p>Great Christian leaders of decades and centuries past—those whose biblical thinking shapes our heritage—were readers, widely read, wisely read. They were discerning and persuasive in their arguments. Why? Because they read.</p>
    <p><strong>One of the BEST ways to LOSE an entire generation of Christian leaders, making them susceptible to every wind of doctrine, is to attempt to control or restrict their thinking, or their reading.</strong> Refusing to engage with threatening dialogue is a cowardly, fear-driven tactic. It shows that I am not equipped with a good answer. It shows tremendous insecurity. It shows a real lack of dependence upon the Holy Spirit’s ability to give discernment. And it’s a sure way to ultimately weaken one’s faith and doctrinal stability.</p>
    <p>Searching the scriptures is what strengthens our belief in good doctrine. Facing questions we can’t answer is a great way to force us into God’s Word for final answers. And the Christian faith is built on VERY GOOD answers. Furthermore, learning how to think biblically is a life-skill that every generation needs—and good thinking is only strengthened when it is well-equipped and well-versed with biblical discernment.</p>
    <p>Telling someone “only read (fill in the blank)” is a veiled way of saying, “Let me do all your thinking for you.” And that’s plainly unbiblical and unhealthy. Don’t fall for it! You will hurt yourself and the faith of Jesus Christ. You will greatly limit your ability to bring others to the gospel. Be widely read and wisely read!</p>
    <p>These thoughts remind me of a post from early last year, entitled “Who’s Doing Your Thinking?” I close with that, in hopes that it will stir you to think, study, read, and refuse to hand your brain over to anyone but Jesus.</p>
    <h2>Repost—Who’s Doing Your Thinking?</h2>
    <p><b>Pharisees say “Don’t think!” </b></p>
    <p>A manipulative person says “I will think for you—listen ONLY to me.” A spiritual leader leads you to think biblically for yourself, with discernment.</p>
    <p><i>“But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men…” (Matthew 23:13)</i></p>
    <p><i>“But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” (Matthew 15:9)</i></p>
    <p><b>Jesus says, “Think deeply!”</b></p>
    <p>Come and see! Search the scriptures—see for yourself! Jesus is not afraid of your questions. He expects you to use the brain that He created.</p>
    <p><i>“And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” (Luke 24:27)</i></p>
    <p><i>“And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?” (Luke 24:32)</i></p>
    <p><b>Apostles Paul and Peter say, “Think out loud with others!”</b></p>
    <p>Dogma demands that we quit thinking. Dialogue invites us to increase our thinking and deepen our faith with solid logic and truth.</p>
    <p><i>“And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,” (Acts 17:2)</i></p>
    <p><i>“And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.” (Acts 24:25)</i></p>
    <p><i>“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”</i>  (<i>1 Peter 3:15)</i></p>
    <p><b>A few questions worthy of consideration:</b></p>
    <p>Are you afraid to think or to let others think? Why? Is your belief threatened by thought? Biblical truth thrives with deeper thought.</p>
    <p>Is someone else asking you not to think? Why? What do they have to lose? Be sure Jesus is your Lord.</p>
    <p>Are you thinking biblically and willing to be honest with Jesus, with the scriptures, and with yourself?</p>
    <p>Are you threatened by those who think? Do the questions of others irritate you? Why? What does this say about your belief system or position?</p>
    <p>Are you leading others to think biblically and become deeply grounded in their own faith? Or are you trying to do their thinking and expecting them to follow? <strong>Intellectual or emotional dependence makes for a very weak faith.</strong></p>
    <p>Are you equipped to reason intelligently and persuasively about Jesus and His truth? God calls us to reason, or to dialogue—to “think out loud” with people about intelligent gospel truths.</p>
    <p>Thinking is a great gift! Don’t let others do your thinking. Don’t try to think for others. Don’t be afraid to think. Don’t be afraid to help others think biblically.</p>
    <p>In closing, God gives a principle to protect you from any “one person” doing the thinking for you.</p>
    <p><i>“Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.” (Proverbs 11:14)</i></p>
    <p><i>“Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.” (Proverbs 15:22)</i></p>
    <p><i>“For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.” (Proverbs 24:6)</i></p>
    <p>Who’s doing your thinking?</p>
    <p>Hopefully your answer is JESUS!</p>

    He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. (Proverbs 28:13 KJV )

    That verse came up when we were studying Joseph’s meeting with his brothers. They had not heard from him since he was sold into slavery at 17 – but he was not forgotten:

    And they said, Thy servants are twelve brethren, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan; and, behold, the youngest is this day with our father, and one is not. (Genesis 42:13 KJV )

    They had led their father to believe he had been killed by putting blood on the beautiful coat of many colors that they hated so much. That had not confessed their sins. Joseph, on the other hand, had been thrown in prison simply because he would not sin with another man’s wife. For many years it appeared that those who covered their sins prospered, while one who shunned temptation languished.

    But, we know the opposite happened. Joseph prospered above all except pharaoh and his brothers bowed to him, just as the sheaves of wheat in his dreams. God’s timing is important. Keep that in mind when considering this verse in Moses’ address to the people before battling for their promised land:

    But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out. (Numbers 32:23 KJV )

    David discovered this truth when Nathan came to him:

    And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die. (2 Samuel 12:13 KJV )

    The actions he took with Bathsheba damaged her, killed her husband, lowered David in the eyes of his captain, but he knew the sin was against God’s commandment.

    Joseph’s brothers had no “Thou shalt not . . .” commandments, but they knew they had sinned and caused their father great sorrow.  To read Judah’s explanation in chapter 44 gives voice to that knowledge. It is overpowered by the forgiveness Joseph offers in Chapter 45, and the one verse that set his brothers free:

    Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life. (Genesis 45:5 KJV )

    It is possible for us to recognize God’s work in our lives? To see the path that led us to see Him in all we do? To glorify Him even when we feel imprisoned? Could we be as strong as Corrie ten Boom and forgive a guard at Ravensbruck ? Could we, as a Coptic Christian this last week, die with the word “Jesus” on our lips?

    We have it so easy, don’t we? Yet we hold on to slights that are not damaging, hurts that are only open wounds because we pick at them. When will we forgive and tell our brethren why:

    And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. (Genesis 45:7 KJV )

    For us it’s not given to save a chosen nation – but it might well be that we are to show one life the great deliverance that Christ offers for eternity. Isn’t that enough?

(Genesis 32:28 KJV )</span></em><br /><br />There are several name changes that take place in the Bible. Then, names meant something. The name could be applicable to a time/place in a persons life. Here Jac OB (Supplanter) became Israel (He will rule as God) by God’s choosing, not his own.<br /><br />For Naomi (Pleasant), the decision was hers:<br /><br /><em><span style="color: #004000;">And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara: for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me. (Ruth 1:20 KJV )</span></em><br /><br />Mara (Bitter) is how Naomi felt – yet she overcame her bitterness and helped her daughter-in-law marry Boaz, descendant of Salmon and Rahab, ancestors of David – and Jesus. Her story leaves me with pleasantness, not bitterness.<br /><br />There’s a name I won’t know until I enter my Lord’s presence. Once there, I think there may be a stone waiting for me:<br /><br /><em><span style="color: #004000;">He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. (Revelation 2:17 KJV )</span></em><br /><br />This is follows the message to the church at Pergamos and precedes the message to the church at Thyatira and includes “what the Spirit saith unto the churches”, as though to all the churches, not just to Pergamos. A theologian would have to set me straight if I’m off course on this, but I like thinking I could have a name assigned by God.<br /><br />Would the name apply to what I’ve done for Him here? For what I’ve witnessed to others about His love, grace and mercy? Or would it be a reminder of some of my failures, as Naomi decided was right for her?<br /><br />While thinking of the joy promised to us in Revelation, it’s not a good idea to dwell on that, nor to longer over the past, either. We all have a calling for here and now, which should be a focus. If we look ahead, we’ll lose sight of where we should be at work for our Lord. If we look behind, we’ll be reminded of our failures as well as our accomplishments.<br /><br /><em><span style="color: #004000;">Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

  13. RSS Robot added a post in a topic: Paul Chappell - 7 Practical Ways To Strengthen Your Hands For The Work   


    What spiritual leader hasn’t drawn encouragement from Nehemiah 2:18?


    Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also the king’s words that he had spoken u nt o me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.— Nehemiah 2:18
    But for that encouragement to be more than an emotional boost, we need specific ways to put it into practice.
    Just how does a person strengthen their hands?
    There are many possibilities, but here are seven starters:
    1. Ask for God’s help and strength.
    When we labor in our own strength, we deplete ourselves. When we labor in God’s power, we receive His sustaining energy and His blessing on what we do.
    Another way to say it: When we work, we work; when we pray, God works.

    For this cause I bow my knees u nt o the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ…That he would gra nt you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;—Ephesians 3:14, 16

    2. Draw strength from God’s Word.
    The Word of God gives perspective and promises like no other source. It gives direction and wisdom. Time with the Lord in His Word settles our spirits and realigns our focus. There is no substitute for it.

    Every word of God is pure: he is a shield u nt o them that put their trust in him.—Proverbs 30:5

    3. Release what weakens your hand.
    This is huge. We ask God to strengthen our hands while at the same time clinging to what weakens our hands. It’s like going to a personal fitness trainer while eating a diet of Twinkies.
    What weakens your hands for the work God has called you to do? Is it excessive entertainment, particular television shows, computer games, a carnal relationship, social media, discouraging thought patterns? Ask God to show you what weakens your hands, and release it.

    Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which d ot h so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,—Hebrews 12:1

    4. Organize your workplace.
    We weaken our ability to respond to needs and work efficiently when we’re not able to find what we need or are not prepared for the next task at hand. Life tends to disorder, thus organization must be a continual effort.

    Let all things be done dece nt ly and in order.—1 Cori nt hians 14:40

    5. Fellowship with godly friends.
    Spend time with friends who encourage your walk with the Lord and strengthen your faith. We live in a day when sarcasm, criticism, and disparagement are celebrated. But these kinds of interactions and relationships weaken our hands. You need friends who will strengthen you in the Lord and in your labor for Him.

    And Jonathan Saul’s son arose, and we nt to David i nt o the wood, and strengthened his hand in God.—1 Samuel 23:16

    6. Seek counsel.
    Indecision weakens our hands and our work. Sometimes an outside perspective from a godly Christian is all we need.

    Without counsel purposes are disappoi nt ed: but in the multitude of counsellers they are established.—Proverbs 15:22

    7. Regain perspective.
    When the work is overwhelming—as any real work for God will be—we need God’s perspective. Sometimes, this means stepping back to gain a clear vision. Sometimes, it means buckling in and focusing on one project at a time.
    There are days when before I even get out of bed, the enormity of the needs in front of me hits with such force that I have to simply pray, “Lord, what can I do today?”
    Remember the work is the Lords, and the results belong to Him. And remember to rejoice in what He is doing.

    This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.—Psalm 118:23

    When Nehemiah surveyed the walls of Jerusalem, he saw them lying in waste. When you see a complete mess—be it in lives, in a city, in a work team, in any way—it weakens your hand. This is why you must purposefully strengthen your hand for the work of God.
