  1. Ephesians 6:10-201599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

    10 ¶ [a]Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
    11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the assaults of the devil.
    12 [b]For we wrestle not against flesh and [c]blood, but against [d]principalities, against powers, and against the worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness, which are in the high places.
    13 [e]For this cause take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to resist in the [f]evil day, and having finished all things, stand fast.
    14 Stand therefore, and your loins girded about with verity, and having on the breastplate of righteousness,
    15 And your feet shod with the [g]preparation of the Gospel of peace.
    16 Above all, take the shield of Faith, wherewith ye may quench all the fiery darts of the wicked,
    17 And take the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
    18 And pray always with all manner prayer and supplication in the [h]spirit: and watch thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all Saints,
    19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly to publish the secret of the Gospel,
    20 Whereof I am the ambassador in bonds, that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

    “Seek ye His Kingdom and His Righteousness”

  2. Alfred E. Neuman

    Reblogged this on FOR GOD AND COUNTRY.

  3. “I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place while not intending it (what???), if I do but keep His commandments.”

    Which commandments are we to keep? The one where He says sell everything you own, houses, lands, computers (gotcha); forsake your mothers, fathers, spouses, children, and come and follow Me?

    The one where He says that if you even think lustful thoughts about a woman it’s NO Kingdom for you?

    The one that says I’ll forgive you ***IF*** you forgive others their trespasses? Pardon me, but y’all SUCK at that one. “nuke the muslims, fuck the niggers, shoot the spics, kill the cops and their whores”; woohoo, let’s ride “christian soldiers”…!

    The one where He says don’t work, I’ll provide for your every need… seek ye first His Kingdom?

    So damn sad… all for lack of a few minutes a day spent in the book of Romans (KJB).

    Romans 6:14… “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are NOT under the law, but under grace.”

    God gave the law to prove to man that he could not keep it. Christ magnified the law a thousand times in the sermon on the mount. Man is so damn arrogant he still thinks he can keep it. Have you actually read His commandments? Can you name even 10 of the 600+? Let’s say you can, what of it?

    Romans 3:20… “Therefore by the deeds of the law shall NO flesh be justified in His sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.”

    Gal 3:19(a)… “Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added BECAUSE of transgressions,…”

    It was the many transgressions of Israel which CAUSED God to give them the law! That’s how “bad” they were… read the book!

    “He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another.”

    Well ain’t you special… WRONG. What “spiritual” nonsense.

    “I have my mission. I may never know it in this life but I shall be told it in the next.”

    How pathetic, sad and remarkably frustrating. READ THE BOOK HE GAVE YOU. He spells it out in simple English!

    Every saved person today has the EXACT same commission and it is not going forth to baptize anyone with signs and wonders following.

    2 Cor 5:17-21… “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath GIVEN TO US the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, NOT imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. NOW THEN WE ARE ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

    God has forgiven the WORLD its trespasses. There is no wrath today; it is why the world is in as bad a shape as it is in. Read the words, words have meaning.

    Romans 5:20… “Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. (READ THAT AGAIN.) But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.”

    He has reconciled Himself to this fallen, cursed world. A preacher of truth today preaches this message of reconciliation ALONE. Are you reconciled to Him? Christ died FOR our sin. He was raised again FOR our justification. HE DID IT ALL because we can’t do a damn thing for ourselves AND THE LAW PROVES IT. Law = certain eternal death because you can’t keep it. Only Christ could keep it.

    Romans 3:26… “To declare, I say, at this time HIS righteousness: that HE might be just, AND the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.”

    Gal 2:21… “I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.”

    Paul is our preacher. He preaches Christ according to the revelation of the mystery revealed to him and him alone. How the world hates that message…

    1 Tim 2:7… “Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.”

    Christ sent Paul (predominantly) to non-Jews (the twelve were for Israel).

    Gal 2:7-9… “But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter; (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:) And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.”

    The 12 stayed in Israel with their own people preaching the Kingdom gospel (gospel of the circumcision). The Kingdom has not been “at hand” for over 2,000 years.

    1 Cor 1:17-18… “For Christ sent me NOT to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”

    The gospel for today = 1 Cor 15:1-4

    It does NOT = Mark 16:16-18

    If you are trying to keep the commandments, Christ’s death to you is meaningless and you are not saved by grace as God wants to save you. You will approach His throne with your own works in your hands rather than Christ’s Perfect Work.

    Thought for the day… “your choice”. Easy one from my POV.

  4. The Word of God, rightly divided, as well as I have ever heard and in such clarity and brevity as has seldom been seen.

    I am going to save and print this to help my walk and witness.

    Well and truly given. Thank you and may God continue to Bless and Keep you.
