Jordan For Jesus #021 "Watch Out (All I Need Is Jesus)" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-08-08 11:59:15
There are many people, in the world, who call themselves "Christians" but they do not follow Christ or believe in God's Word, the Bible. Don't be deceived! Just because someone says they are a "Christian" doesn't mean they truly are. You will know a tree by its fruit. One who has been born again has the desire to pursue the heart of God.
If you are pursuing everything but God, your faith is not genuine. A person with genuine faith is delighted in the Word of God which is the Bible and follows after Christ with all their heart relentlessly determined. Don't be deceived!
Just because someone says they love God does not mean they actually do if they do not love the Word of God, the Bible. If someone says they love God but not the Bible, their faith is not genuine.
To love God is to love the Word because God is the Word. Because the world tries to redefine Christianity, today, there is a big difference between being a Christian and actually following Christ. The world has made Christianity all about love.
They think God is so loving He agrees with everyone's beliefs forgetting what God believes. The world chooses to make itself its own God by following what it believes is true rather than making the one true God of heaven and earth their God and following what God says is true.
The world is not God, nor are celebrities in Hollywood God. The one, true God of heaven and earth is God. There is no other God besides Him. God doesn't agree with everyone's beliefs. The Bible talks about what God believes and what He says is true and untrue. Right and wrong. God is love but the world has forgotten that God is also just, righteous, holy and pure.
The world leaves out the Bible, the truth. Love is not agreeing with others but it is being honest with others. That is why God has given us His Word, the Bible, which is the TRUTH. Because the world is sharing half-truths about GOD instead of the whole truth, the world's love and faith is not genuine.
Don't be deceived!! Way too many Christians are being deceived by the devil because of their ignorance of God and His Word, the Bible. Satan's biggest weapon is a person's ignorance of the Bible because knowing the truth of God, in the Bible, sets you free from satan's lies.
You become dangerous to satan having the wisdom of God, Which is given through the Holy Spirit, to know and understand right from wrong. Why? Because knowing the truth, which is God and His word, you won't be deceived by satan and his lies anymore.
So if the world is turning against God's Word, but saying they are for God, you know their faith is not genuine including celebrities in Hollywood. If it does not line up with God's word, which is the Bible, do not fall for it. Don't be deceived!
Listen to the truth. The Holy Spirit is your guide. Let the Holy Spirit guide you into all truth so that you may abide in the truth and not be easily tempted and deceived by satan and his lies.
When satan tempts you not to care for others, remember who God is. God cares. Don't listen to satan! Tell him to watch out because you know the truth and will speak it unashamedly,
God-confidently and fearlessly in the love of God for those who desperately need to know it and be set free by Jesus Christ. Don't withhold the truth of God from others. God didn't withhold His son Jesus Christ, who is the truth, from you did He? Ok then, don't withhold His message from others.
Only the truth sets you free and until you know Him as He knows you, you will never be truly free.
"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32)
"Cast your cares upon the Lord for He cares for you." (Psalm 55:22)
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (Ephesians 6:12)
"What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ." (Philippians 3:8)
As we smiled at the people we met on our walk I wondered at the social custom that requires face-to-face congeniality on a bike path among strangers who would soon be in our respective cars fighting over a lane change. It’s easier to be mad at people when we can’t see their faces.
Slightly Obsessed #226: Triune
In its most basic element, our very existence mirrors His Godhead in trinity. Each person enters time and space as three: body, soul, and spirit.
Slightly Obsessed #225: Why Lightning Doesn't Strike the Wicked
The popular radio host was on a rampage, vehemently damning God. He crowned the diatribe by flinging a challenge at God to strike him down at that very moment. He smugly interpreted heaven's silence as proof that there is no God. But what was really happening?
Slightly Obsessed #224: When the Pressure Feels Too Great
The fig I found in a local big box store had already been trimmed into a lovely miniature tree with an unusual trunk. Little did I understand what it takes to train a plant into a bonsai, and what that process would teach me about God.
Slightly Obsessed #223: Right Clothes, Wrong Spirit
Satan seeks to deceive us, divide us, and destroy us. His bag of tricks and sleight of hand are impressive but imaginary trapdoors to disillusionment. He constantly roams the earth in an insatiable search for humans to devour.
Slightly Obsessed #222: The Rain
Like the grass, the human heart has shallow roots and fades quickly in the dry season. But those shallow roots also are the first to taste the rain.
