DECEIVE PROOF YOUR MIND

7/4/10

We are living in the time that the apostle Paul told Timothy would come in the future.

1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,

Deceiving spirits are rampant in the world today. They are masters at counterfeiting spirituality. They want Christians to trust in their doctrines and not trust in the doctrines of Christ for their spirituality.

Christians must learn that Satan is very crafty and that just because the so called spiritual program that they are using is working does not mean that it pleases God or that the programs power source is from God.

2Co 11:1 Oh, that you would bear with me in a little folly—and indeed you do bear with me.

2Co 11:2 For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

2Co 11:3  But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

2Co 11:13  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.

2Co 11:14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

2Co 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

Exo 7:9 “When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, ‘Show a miracle for yourselves,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your rod and cast it before Pharaoh, and let it become a serpent.’

“Exo 7:10 So Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and they did so, just as the LORD commanded. And Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent.

Exo 7:11 But Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers; so the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.

Exo 7:12 For every man threw down his rod, and they became serpents. But Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.

Col 2:8  Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.


Today too many Christians are seeking for answers to their problems outside of the Word of God alone because they have not been taught the doctrinal foundation for true spirituality and the true source for the answer to all their problems.


Purpose: To learn from Scripture alone that counterfeit spirituality focuses on man and his problems and a Christ-less way to overcome his problems. And that true spirituality focuses on the Person of Christ, His cross/work and the Spirit of Christ through the Word of God alone as the means to solve all of a Christians problems.

God alone is my Expectation

God alone is my Expectation

6/27/10

As we grow in Christ there are things that the Lord teaches us in order to wean us from everything that detracts us from trusting in Him alone. Our Father in His love and faithfulness is dedicated to show us that He alone is to be our constant expectation. Every other object of expectation for our happiness will only disappoint us because it is not a worthy object of belief. Our Father alone owns all our ways and ordains all our steps and we have no idea what the next moment of His plan holds for us.

In other words, the Lord alone is absolutely sovereign over all the details of our lives. Therefore we should not presumptuously allow our plans and goals to supplant God’s will as our ultimate expectation in every area of our life.

Jas 4:13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”;

Jas 4:14 whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what isyour life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.

Jas 4:15 Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.”

Jas 4:16 But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.

You will only discover absolute peace and happiness in praying that your God will make Himself i.e. His will your moment by moment expectation.

II Sam.15:26 “Let Him do to me as seems good to Him.”

Psa 62:5 My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him.

Purpose: To learn from Scripture alone that God alone should be our expectation. And we will also learn that the Lord test us to show us the utter futility of trusting in any other source of expectation for our happiness. We become discouraged and disappointed when God is not our expectation. When God causes His sovereign will to be the center and circumference of our life then and only then will we not become discouraged or disappointed with all the test God brings into our lives.

God Wants You Humble

God Wants You Humble

What ever you are going through in your life at this moment God’s goal is to clothe you in humility which is the character of Christ i.e. the Christ-life and not the self-life. Human humility is an oxymoron it is a contradiction in terms. It is impossible for any human to be humble apart from the supernatural work of God the Holy Spirit by means of sanctifying a Christian in the image of Christ. God’s personal path for each of His blood bought children in humility is to strip us of all our pride by showing us the sin our self-sufficiency and to cause us to trust in Him for our every need. He does this by taking from us our idols and all those things that direct our minds away from Him as the Source of our life, our peace, our sufficiency, our contentment and our joy so that we reflect the Christ-life to a sin cursed world to the glory of God.

Purpose: To learn from Scripture why the Father wants you to be humble and that His process of humbling you in not to harm you but to conform you to the image of His Son the Lord Jesus Christ for His glory and your good. Furthermore, this personal path of humility is the only way for you to not trust in yourself and to totally trust in the wisdom, grace and love of your Lord to do to you what seems best to Him so that you grow in the    grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.

You Need God’s Encouragement

You Need God’s Encouragement

6/6/10

Are you asking yourself why am I going through this suffering. Are you experiencing a terrible loss? Do you feel like the world is caving in on you?

Are you about to give up all hope? Have you lost all joy in life? Do you feel like you are trapped in a nightmare and there is no way out?

If you are experiencing any of the above then you need God’s encouragement.

The only place to turn when God brings us into His furnace of affliction is to run to His Word for encouragement.

Joh 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Purpose: To learn from Scripture the purpose of suffering and how to be encouraged in the midst of any and all suffering.

God’s purpose in suffering is to humble us and test us and to wean us from our confidence in ourselves and to cause us to depend on Him to be conformed to Christ image and to cause us to long for our heavenly home with Christ.

Psa 119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray, But now I keep Your word.

5/30/10


We are living in a great day of apostasy.


The apostle Paul said, 2Th 2:3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,

1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,


This apostasy is so evident today because tens of thousands of people are abandoning the historical, Biblical doctrine of the trinity for idolatrous doctrines of demons. One of the main reasons people are rushing into idolatry is because ministers are not grounding their church members in the basic doctrines of Christianity. In other words, Christians have no discernment when they hear false doctrine. They have no idea if what they just heard in a sermon is historical, Biblical Christianity or historical heresy. I have heard that in the Treasury Department they are taught what authentic currency looks like so that they are able to recognize the counterfeit. We must spend time in the Word of God and learn what our God says about His true identity so that we have discernment and are able to avoid any counterfeit doctrines concerning our God.


Purpose: To learn from Scripture how God reveals Himself as our Trinitarian God so that we will worship our God correctly and be armed with the Scriptures to defend our faith against Satan’s blasphemous attacks.

A Guide for Young Christians

A Guide for Young Christians

John W. Robbins

When God saves us sinners, he causes us to believe certain propositions about himself and about ourselves—ideas that we formerly thought were not true. In an instant, God resurrects us from the spiritual death of unbelief and makes us understand and believe the truth about both Jesus Christ and ourselves. Scripture refers to this event by using several figures of speech: being born again, being born from above, enlightening the mind, being resurrected from the dead, and giving us a heart of flesh for our heart of stone. What this figurative language literally means (and if you do not know what figurative language literally means, you do not know what it means) is that God affects our minds directly, causing us to accept as true, ideas we formerly thought were not true. He gives truth—figuratively called “light” in Scripture—directly to our minds.

How to Recognize a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

4/24/10 Sermon

We are living in the darkest days that America has ever experienced based on the fact that truth has fallen in the streets. The prophet Isaiah gives us a picture of the spiritual condition of America.

Isa 59:14 Justice is turned back, And righteousness stands afar off; For truth is fallen in the street, And equity cannot enter.

Isa 59:15 So truth fails, And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Then the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him That there was no justice.

Edmund Burke stated that, All that’s necessary for the forces of evil to win in the world is for enough good men to do nothing.

Every Christian is commanded to expose false teaching so that we defend the truth of Scripture and protect the church from false shepherds.

Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.

Eph 5:12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.

Eph 5:13 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.

Eph 5:14 Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.”

There are many false shepherds today leading millions of people away from the truth.

One of the greatest things that you can do for your family is to learn how to recognize a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Before you ever set foot into a church you should always read their statement of faith to see if they are teaching historical, Biblical, orthodox Christianity or historical heresy.

Purpose: To learn from Scripture how to recognize a wolf in sheep’s clothing by learning their view of the Trinity.

How to Stand in Truth Alone


How to Stand in Truth Alone

2/6/10

Our Lord taught us how to handle every problem that we will ever face in our lives by showing us how to stand in Truth alone. Contrary to Christ example, the world, the flesh and the devil offer us many false and deceptive ways to cope with our woes i.e. psychology, man’s philosophy, self-help programs, false religions. However, these anti-Christ systems always end in despair and only compound our problems, because these diabolical enemies represent the spirit of error and not the spirit of truth. The Scriptures alone reveal where we are to stand against all our enemies and how we are to stand which is by belief alone in the Word of God alone. The Word of God teaches us to stand in belief on His power, His promises and His victory and not to stand in doubt, worry and fear i.e. unbelief.

Purpose: To learn from Scripture how to claim your stand in Truth alone by belief alone to appropriate the victory of the cross/work of Christ in every area of your life.

What Truth Is and What It Is Not

1/17/10

What Truth is and What it is Not

Today when you ask Christians what is truth they give many different answers. Some say that truth is personal and not propositional. Others assert that truth is found in sensation, percepts, concepts, experiences, observations, science, psychology, and archeology and in human reasoning apart from Scripture. Christians are not unified in their definition of truth.

Purpose: To learn from Scripture what truth is and what it is not so that we learn to trust God’s Word alone as the only source for our belief and godly living.

What Is The Philosophy Of A Free Society?

Listen to complete sermon 12/27/09

What is the Philosophy of a Free Society?

Can you provide either a coherent foundation for a free society or a coherent description of a free society? We cannot defend the principle of freedom because we do not know the contents of freedom. Jesus said in John 8:32,

Joh 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

It is so tragic that we are living in a country where we are losing our freedoms every day and moving toward totalitarianism and we do not have leaders that are teaching us the nature of freedom or how to defend it or maintain it. You will never learn about God’s philosophy of freedom in an American school system.

Purpose: To learn from Scripture the Philosophy of a Free Society

1. We started a series titled, “The Five Fundamentals of Christianity.  These five fundamentals are

(1) Scripture Alone (2) Christ Alone (3) Grace Alone (4) Faith Alone (5) To the Glory of God Alone

2. We want to look at Scripture Alone today as the foundation on which a free society is created.

The first question for every leader of a free society to ask is, “What is truth?”
