All the World: A Whole That’s Being Put for a Part

Scripture often uses general terms to describe salvation. In other words, it’s often spoken of figuratively, with a whole that’s being put for a part. For example, the Word is said to bear fruit in “all the world” (Col. 1:6).  But this does not mean that everyone in the whole world is going to be saved.

“The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one” (Mt. 13:38).

Scripture plainly reveals, in other passages as well, that when it comes to salvation, the world is figuratively likened to a field that the Lord has bought in order to obtain the treasure hidden in it:

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field” (Mt. 13:45-46).

There is a general, limited sense in which the Lord has temporally “bought” those that perish (e.g. Deut. 32:6; 2 Pet. 2:1), because if God immediately rooted up the tares in the world, it could cause harm to the wheat that is mixed in with them.  That’s why the Lord is so long-suffering, merciful, good and kind to the wicked who are on earth.

“He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust” (Mt. 5:45).

But only for the sake of God’s people…

“lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn” (Mt. 13:28-30).

In John 12:19, it is stated in general terms that the world had gone after Christ. However, only the multitude, that followed Jesus in Jerusalem, was intended by these general terms (a whole was being put for the part).  The apostles in Acts 17:6 were said to have “turned the world upside down,” but it was a figure of speech that was NOT to be taken literally.

So in light of this biblical truth, prayerfully consider the following:

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men” (1 Tim. 2:1).

The context reveals that general terms are used here for all kinds of people (without distinction). It does NOT mean all without exception, but rather all without distinction of race, gender, social status, works, etc.  For “God is no respecter of persons” (Acts 10:34, Mt. 22:16), because He chooses His own apart from any earthly distinctions.

To further prove this, the context even provides us with an example!!—Prayers are to be made EVEN for kings and all who are in authority (v. 2)!  In order to clarify that those who are in authority– EVEN king’s– are all at God’s sovereign disposal.

“The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: He turneth it whithersoever He will” (Prov. 21:1).

Likewise, in Romans 4: 13 we are given general terms to describe how Abraham was figuratively “an heir of the world.  And the context reveals the world that is literally being referred to…the faithful (v. 11). So again, a whole (the world) was being put for a part (the faithful).

In Romans 11:12, we are given general terms to describe how the believing Gentiles are figuratively referred to as the “riches of the world,” for they’ve been made partakers of the promises (Rom. 11:17), because the fallen Jews forfeited the riches of their inheritance, due to unbelief. And the context likens these “riches of the world” as a “reconciling of the world” (v. 11), because salvation is no longer just for the Jews.  So a whole (the world) was put for a part (the believing Gentiles).

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Pet. 3:9).

The context here clearly reveals that the “us-ward” are the “all” that’s being referred to. And it even reveals WHY God is not willing for them to perish, for they are His “beloved” (3: 1), who are given divine power and all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him (1:3), so that they can grow in grace and in the knowledge of their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (3: 18).

The entire context also reveals that the “all” here are the children of promise, who are all “partakers of the divine nature,” who escape the corruption of the world through Christ (1:4). They are those “that have obtained like precious faith“(1:1), so that their faith can never finally fail, because Jesus makes sure that their fruit remains (Jn. 15:16), which clearly distinguishes them from the reprobates who are being referred to negatively within the same context!

Therefore, the “all” in 2 Peter 3:9 cannot possibly be referring to everyone. No wonder Scripture constantly reveals a whole that’s being put for a part, when it comes to salvation:

“Who gave Himself a ransom for all” (1 Tim. 2:6).

Once again, this passage perfectly coincides with what was just demonstrated previously, concerning the verses that immediately came before this one. Throughout Scripture we are constantly given a contextual frame of reference, to help us to clearly understand who these “all” are, and it’s NOT the whole entire world!  It is NOT every single person in the world who has ever existed!!

Not convinced yet? Then prayerfully consider what follows: 

“For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, Who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe” (1 Tim. 4:10).

(All men) is the figurative whole that’s being put for the part (those that believe). 

And again, we read:

“[T]hat He by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became Him, for Whom are all things, and by Whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings” (Heb. 2:9-10).

Here in Hebrews, the “many sons” reveals who is actually being brought unto glory, for many can never be interpreted as all, and the many are specifically defined as those whom He “sanctifies” (2:11), His “brethren” (2:12), the children God gave Him (2:13), those delivered from the bondage of death (2:15), the elect, whose salvation was obtained by this perfect Savior Who “tasted death” (the cup of death, Mt. 20:22; 26:42)… as their actual substitute.  

So, in light of the context, we clearly see, again, that a whole (every man) is being put for a part (who believes in Him). These are also the ones being referred to when Jesus said:

“Behold I and the children which God hath given Me” (Heb. 2:13).

Jesus even said:

“I pray not for the world, but for them which Thou hast given Me; for they are Thine” (Jn. 17:9).

Jesus makes a clear distinction between the whole world in general and the elect who are dispersed throughout the world.  Which further confirms the fact that the words “all” and “world” in Scripture are not always to be taken in an all-inclusive sense. Jesus said that His elect will be hated by “all” (Mt. 10:22), but does that literally mean all, which would include other believers? NO, it does not.

“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed” (Lk. 2:1).

Again, “all the world” here is a figurative whole that’s being put for a literal part, because only those who were under the Roman government were being taxed.

So, in light of these obvious truths, are we really to believe the Arminians when they say that “all means all,” without even taking into consideration what the context so clearly reveals?

Does the “whole world” lie in wickedness, in an all-inclusive sense (1 Jn. 5:19)? Does all the world wonder after the beast” (Rev. 13:3)?  Certainly not, for such surface-level interpretations contradict the biblical import of language and passages within their proper context. Clearly, followers of Christ are not lying in wickedness and they are not wondering after the beast!

This is why context and biblical exegesis is so very important when “rightly dividing the Word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15).  For if Jesus was given by the Father in order to literally save all men from their sins, and yet many perish, then how would He be trustworthy and faithful to all of His promises? For all of those that Jesus died for, are also promised all spiritual blessings, which most certainly includes the grace gifts of faith and repentance (Rom. 4:8; 8:32). For God not only decrees the ends, but also the means for accomplishing His purposes.

Scripture reveals that God’s redemptive love is unchangeable and everlasting. But if Arminianism was true (and thankfully it’s not) then that would mean that God still loves those who are in Hell,, even though the Bible is clear that the condemning, unappeased wrath of God eternally abides upon them (Jn. 3:36).  So, what kind of redemptive love would never even apply the eternal benefits of such a universal atonement?  It would not be a trustworthy, saving love at all!

Arminianism makes Jesus out to be a failure, by attempting to separate His redemptive work from the Fathers will and the application of it by the Holy Spirit, which would completely sever the divine unity of the Godhead in salvation. But thankfully the true Jesus of the Bible is promised to be an eternal blessing for all of those that He has died for, because He loses none that the Father has given Him, for they shall, in time, receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and all of the spiritual things that are necessary for them to be saved (Jn. 1:12-13).

“He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Rom. 8:32).

“Us all” refers to the “all” who will be given “all things” that pertain to eternal life, because Jesus has promised eternal blessings to all that the Father has given Him (Jn. 17:2).  And He will not and cannot lie:

“I give them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand” (Jn. 10:28).

So dear reader, PLEASE prayerfully think this through, so that you will not be deceived:

”God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them” (2 Cor. 5:19).

If everyone in the whole world, who has ever lived, has been reconciled to God, and if everyone has had their sins imputed to Christ, then why in the world would any end up in Hell paying for them again?  Such vain, non-sensical Arminian philosophy also contradicts Romans 4:8:

“Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.”

So why would any that Jesus died for end up not being eternally blessed? The only way a universal atonement would be good news is if there was also a universal redemption, but there’s not, for that would contradict Scripture, because it’s clear that many perish in Hell.

Therefore, a universal atonement would be really, really bad news, because it doesn’t keep anyone from ending up in Hell, for it does not actually atone for ALL of the sins of ALL of those that it was allegedly designed for. There is a universal call of the gospel, which goes out to the entire world, but there is NOT a universal atonement or a universal salvation represented in Scripture, because only Jesus’ sheep will hear His voice, so to speak. But those who are not His sheep will continue to follow false shepherds (Jn. 10).

God’s Word reveals that there is only a definite, substitutionary, propitiatory and perfect atonement that saves ALL that it was designed for. There is a fountain free, open to ALL who thirst for a perfect righteousness outside of themselves; ALL who realize their inability to believe enough or repent enough to merit salvation; ALL who realize their will is in bondage to sin unless Jesus sets them free; ALL who realize their desperate and complete hopelessness, helplessness and sinfulness apart from the Saviors imputed righteousness; ALL who come trusting only in Jesus Christ and what He actually accomplished at the cross for sinners. These are the ones that it was designed for, and they shall ALL come to Him, and they shall ALL be saved!  

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (Jn. 3:16).

This verse does NOT say “whosoever” without exclusion has the natural ability to believe and thirst after righteousness.  Everyday life even testifies to this fact! Instead, the context shows that “whosoever” are those who will never perish because of unbelief, for God graciously gave them His Son, Who has obtained for them the spiritual gift of faith that will, in time, enable them to believe from the heart (Eph. 2:8; 4:8). The context of John 3 also clearly states that those who never believe have already been condemned (v. 18). 

Yet, Arminianism teaches that Christ died for the whole world, even those who end up in Hell, which blasphemously implies that His death didn’t obtain particular redemption for anyone. Case in point, it suggests that His death accomplished nothing!  But, in order to try to appear biblical on the surface, many Arminians will still attempt to borrow the Calvinistic truth of a substitutionary atonement. However, they always end up denying it in effect, because a substitution that doesn’t actually substitute is no substitution at all!

This is why it is so important to realize that just because a Bible passage uses the word “world” it does NOT automatically refer to every single person who has ever lived. Scripture is clear, in Romans 11:12, the Gentiles are referred to as the riches of the world, in order to clarify the fact that salvation is NOT just for a remnant of the Jews only, but that salvation is also for a remnant taken from EVERY tongue, tribe and nation throughout the world (Mt. 24:31).   

“And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world” (1 Jn. 2:2).

Once again, the words “whole world” is expressed in general terms here, for Jesus’ propitiation did NOT put away the sins of every single individual that has ever lived!  The words “not for ours only,” refutes such a notion and coincides perfectly with all the other parallel passages that make it so clear that the Jews were NOT the only nation that had a remnant chosen by God.  Jesus did NOT just die for a remnant of the Jewish people, which is why the words “whole world” is used.  How could it be any clearer?

Scripture interprets Scripture…

“…he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also He should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad” (Jn. 11:51-52).

God’s Word constantly conveys the fact that even Gentile nations have a remnant, chosen by God, who have been scattered abroad. And the promise that He shall gather them is an emphasis that is reiterated throughout Scripture.  For even more confirmation, we discover the following:

“Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on Me through their word” (Jn. 17:20).

God’s elect remnant is referred to in other parallel passages as well:

“I have manifested Thy name unto the men which Thou gavest Me out of the world: Thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me; and they have kept Thy word” (Jn. 17:6).

Clearly, not everyone in the world has kept God’s Word and not everyone is gathered in Him, but only those who belong to Him. Even Revelation 5:9 makes a clear distinction between the whole world and God’s gathered remnant:

“Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood OUT of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.”

Revelation 7:9 also states the following:

“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, OF all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands.”

Therefore, those who have eyes to see, can clearly concede that God’s Word contains overwhelming evidence that reveals the undeniable fact that He has a remnant of chosen people, throughout the whole world, who are scattered abroad and brought near to Him through faith in Jesus’ blood.

“But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ” (Eph. 2:13).

All spiritual blessings are found only in Christ Jesus and what He accomplished on behalf of sinners. His definite atonement not only procured the ends, but also the instrumental means of faith and repentance, so that all who trust solely in Him and what He actually accomplished at the cross can be sure that they have been elected by God before the foundation of the world. What a comfort it is to know that He rescues His lost sheep, He secures their salvation, and He gathers His chosen remnant!

“Jesus knew that His hour was come that He should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved His own which were in the world, He loved them unto the end” (Jn. 13:1).

Jesus’ Resurrection PROVED Substitutionary Satisfaction

Available at Amazon: All royalties go to free paperback distribution. Email: gospel4life@live.com

Christology is the study of the Person and work of Jesus Christ. And within that realm of study, one goes to the “crux” of the matter, so to speak. The word crux has its root in the Latin word for “cross,” because the message of the cross is at the very core and center of biblical Christianity. For it was there that propitiation (satisfaction) was made on behalf of God’s people, which was a fulfillment of Isaiah 53. Verse 11 even conveyed how God would be satisfied with what the coming Messiah would accomplish.

At the cross, all the offices of Christ became clear and fully formed (crystallized), including His unchangeable priesthood. Apart from what He actually accomplished at the cross, there would be no good news, no propitiation, no reconciliation, no resurrection, no intercession, no justification, no redemption, no perpetual priesthood, no throne of grace, and no hope of new heavens and a new earth.

This is why Arminian theology, with its “hypothetical, universal atonement,” is so blasphemous, for it implies that everyone has been “hypothetically” redeemed and purchased by Jesus’ blood, but that they can still be tossed into Hell as worthless if they don’t make His atonement effectual by their own works or by exercising their own “libertarian freewill consent.”

“Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith [H]e was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?” (Heb. 10:29, brackets added).

 Although many Arminians will claim to believe in substitutionary atonement, they betray their claim when they are unable to explain exactly who Jesus was being a substitute for, because if they were consistent with their theology then they’d have to admit that His atonement never secured the salvation of anyone. In other words, they’d have to admit that it accomplished nothing, except to create an abstract “possibility” that they might save themselves if they would only “activate” it somehow.

The implications of Arminianism not only denies the fulfillment of Isaiah 53 (including verse 11), but it also dislocates the whole meaning of the eternal plan of redemption and obstructs a clear view of the eternal purposes of God that were revealed at the cross, for the blood that was shed there by the great Shepherd of the sheep, was the blood of the everlasting covenant (Heb. 13:20).  Jesus’ blood effectually sealed and fulfilled the New Covenant, in order to “save His people from their sins” (Mt. 1:21).

No wonder Apostle Paul could say, “I count all things but loss, for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord” (Phil. 3:8). Because to know Christ in His Person, and to know Him by His work, constitutes the sum and substance of divine knowledge, for it is upon this solid Rock alone, that the church of the living God is built.

All the spiritual blessings that are found in Christ are grounded upon the validity of His sufferings. Christ is now in the presence of the Father, effectively pleading His finished work on the cross, on behalf of all those He died for, because His unfailing intercession for them is grounded upon the merits of the pure and efficacious blood that He shed there.

Jesus sanctified Himself so that they too would be sanctified (Jn. 17:19). Jesus’ own blood made way for His entrance into the Holiest of all, as their High Priest (Heb. 9:8, 24), where He pleads the precious value of His blood on their behalf, which is why they can approach the throne of grace, because their acceptance in the Beloved (Who was their substitute, Eph. 1:6) is grounded upon the fulfillment of divine justice, merited by Jesus’ blood, NOT by their own works, or their own “freewill” act of authorization.

“[B]y His own blood He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us” (Heb. 9:12, brackets added).

The Apostle tells us, “No one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1 Cor. 3:11). For it was laid not by man, but by God, in the eternal counsels of the Godhead. So those who attempt to substitute this great truth with the weak fabric of human philosophy are laboring in vain. Because our faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God” (1 Cor. 2:5).

Christians must be well-grounded in the knowledge of Who Christ really is, and how He justifies sinners. Because when a system claims to be Christian but doesn’t have the doctrine of Christ, (the truth about the work and Person of Jesus Christ), it doesn’t have the true God and Savior, but rather falls under the condemnation of 2 John 7-11 as being a deceiver and an anti-Christ.

This is why the inconsistent perplexities of Arminian-based theology, science, philosophy, social reforms and human philanthropies only swerve people away from the gospel with profane and vain babblings. But Christ is the light of the world that scatters such darkness away, which is why battles against such earthly schemes of man’s advancement can only be fought with the doctrines of the divine Savior.

Apostle Paul never utilized the rhetorical persuasion of humanistic philosophy, for he renounced such worldly wisdom and “excellency of speech.” He never promoted social reforms, political discourses, sermons on patriotism or any other popular and sensational topics that the polished people of his day would have applauded. Like today, many were prejudiced against God’s sovereign supremacy and “spent their time in nothing else but either to hear or tell some new thing” (Acts 17:21), but Paul refused to cater to them, for he never descended to any other theme than Christ and His atoning work.

As Christians, we too must stand firm and labor until we die, resolving always and everywhere to determine to know nothing among men, except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified (1 Cor. 2:2). By the grace of God, with an eye single to Jesus’ glory, we must keep our heart and mind steeped in His Word so that all of our endeavors converge to the developing of this central truth. Because if it wasn’t for the life that Jesus laid down for our sins, and the life that He took back up again for our justification, there would be no substitutionary atonement, no Christianity, and no Savior.

“Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification” (Rom. 4:25).

Jesus’ two-part propitiation fully satisfied divine justice, so that His perfect righteousness is imputed to all who have faith in His blood!!

“Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood” (Rom. 3:25).

Jesus’ resurrection from the dead PROVED that God the Father cancelled and discharged all of the sins that Jesus bore on the cross, on behalf of all who were given to Him as a love gift from the Father (e.g. Psa. 2:8). His resurrection PROVED that His propitiation at the cross was completely successful on behalf of all those whom He stood in relation to by an everlasting covenant; all those that He was united to by the eternal purpose of the Father, before the foundation of the world (Jn. 13:1; Eph. 1:4; Rev. 13:8, 17:8). Because the blood that Jesus shed was…the blood of the everlasting covenant!!

“Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant” (Heb. 13:20).

The fact that Jesus is alive forevermore, PROVES that His atonement was definite, substitutionary and propitiatory, NOT universal or hypothetical, for it actually and effectually sealed the everlasting covenant with His people; it victoriously appeased and satisfied God’s holy wrath and reconciled them back to the Father, which was the whole purpose of Jesus’ incarnation in the first place (Mt. 1:21), in order to manifest His everlasting love, His perfect righteousness and the praise of His glorious grace.

Because He lives, it PROVES that all who put their faith in Christ alone will be “sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise” (Eph. 1:13), because Jesus’ perfect atoning sacrifice was accepted by the Father, so that all who come to God by Jesus Christ shall be saved to the uttermost!!

“Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them” (Heb. 7:25).

To the praise of God’s glorious grace, it is truly amazing what Jesus actually accomplished by His death, burial and resurrection to secure the eternal plan of redemption, by which God determined to save, through Christ, sinners whom He has chosen, and how glorious and beautiful it is that He freely bestows the grace necessary for them to respond in faith and repentance.

This is why Jesus Christ and Him crucified is the very heart of the gospel. For in virtue of His victory, He fulfilled the demands of God’s holiness and justice, so that all who come to Him shall receive God’s mercy and grace;  so that they may certainly “know Him, and the power of His resurrection” (Phil. 3:10)

Arminian Syncretism Leads to Medicalizing Sin

Available at Amazon: All royalties go to free paperback distribution.
Email: gospel4life@live.com

Disobediently, Arminianism syncretizes humanism with Christianity by promoting salvation as something that is within the scope of fallen humanity’s natural ability, where human “freewill” becomes the deciding factor, rather than the free and sovereign will of God. 

Arminianism contradicts sacred Scripture, where it is made clear that God is the One Who begins the work of regeneration and He is the One Who completes it (e.g. Phil. 1:6). Arminianism, on the other hand, promotes an anti-scriptural system of salvation that the unregenerate can attain to, so that human self-will becomes the main feature.  

“He who trusts in his own heart is a fool” (Prov. 28:26).

This muddled mindset, when taken to its logical conclusion, inevitably leads to self-deification, where one becomes a self-styled “ascended master” of one’s own destiny.  This is why we are now seeing an increased demand for self-enhancing “science” that alters the human genome, in an attempt to “be as gods” (Gen. 3:5). Syncretizing moralistic humanism with medical tyranny has become the “crowning” achievement of the cult of scientism, brought about by century’s worth of self-salvation religions.

Talking heads who are masquerading as “experts” are giving people the illusion of being informed, but they are actually creating diversions from the truth.  Since their humanistic doctrines fail to hold up, even under the slightest fact-based inquiry, they are unable to interact with any viewpoint other than their own.  So they attempt to intimidate opposition and suppress a free-exchange of theological dialogue. For they have no true desire to persuade, inform or convince of any truth reasonably, but instead, they seek to humiliate any opposition and to shame any who come up against their disproven theories.

From the very start, mainstream media and religious cults have always waged war on language and have always been in conflict with the true Christian worldview. God’s word warns that we are not to continue in such “vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers” (1 Pet. 1:18).

Most of us grew up in families that believed whatever mainstream media told them to believe and our language and lifestyle was molded by it.  This is why many of us grew up in families and churches that passively fell into Big Pharma’s socially-sanctioned idea that a condemned conscience, under conviction of sin, could be “medicalized away” through the use of mind-altering drugs.  Because a society that’s been dumbed down by chemically-induced lobotomies, is much easier to control and lead astray.

     “The Bible claims to be the authoritative treatise on the doctrine of man, including the fallen nature, salvation, sanctification, faith and obedience. Therefore, if one is to study the human condition one must begin with Scripture rather than psychology. The commitment must be, first of all, that the Bible is in and of itself completely sufficient for matters of life and conduct. That does not mean that it is merely a sufficient framework on which to suspend unproven psychological theories.”₁

No wonder a totalitarian medical priesthood has now evolved to the point that it is dictating legalistic rules in an attempt to shut down true spiritual convictions by medicalizing sin and privatizing religious expression to the point of pushing truth to the margins, while circulating lies and conjoining global forces to shut down free speech.  As a result, God’s absolute truth has become the new “hate speech.”

 “You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. You shall not follow a crowd to do evil” (Ex. 23:1-2).

Even drunkenness, dishonesty and every form of debauchery is now “diagnosed” as a medical condition that can be medicated away or cured by humanistic remedies. And the modern evangelical mindset (which is now pre-dominantly Arminian) implies that we should follow the majority off the edge of a cliff, as long as they profess to be Bible-believing Christians.  This is due to the fact that most professing Christians and institutions today are Christian in name only.  Such hypocrisy is now being accepted at face value, as long as one just names Christ and seems sincere.  

But the burden of proof still lies with such false professors to demonstrate that they truly have been given a new, born-again nature that’s enabled by God to renounce the world’s lies and to wholeheartedly be reconciled to God through Christ, instead of turning to occultic alchemists who have traded in their black hooded cloaks for white lab coats. 

Until then, it would be spiritual adultery against God to associate with such false pretenders who would rather stay glued to their mind-control devices than to be glued to God in prayer. So-called “churches” that passively condone such mind-numbing compromise are causing their captives to become partakers in the spiritual plagues that are embedded in such deceptive facades.  And yet, they wonder why God’s judgment is coming upon them!!??

     “Because many in the church believe that theories and techniques of counseling psychology are based upon empirical evidence, they put them on the same level of authority as the Bible. In so doing, the subjective observations and biased opinions of mere mortals are placed on the same authoritative level as the inspired Word of God. Furthermore, trying to syncretize psychology with Christianity denies the sufficiency of the Word of God and the sufficiency of the Spirit of God in all matters of life and conduct. It suggests that the Bible needs substantiation, confirmation, expansion, and assistance in matters of life and godliness.”₂

Thankfully, the contagion is eradicated when such lies are exposed to the light and testimony of Scripture. This is why the evil spirit behind such illusions will pull out all the stops in an attempt to throw biblical, critical thinking to the wind, because in order to keep up the charade, the masses must be kept in spiritual derangement.  This is where the spiritual “expertise” of paid actors comes into play.

 For instance, the CoC’s very own Duck Dynasty gurus have become key players in the not so “happy, happy, happy” agenda, for their deception-heavy doctrines are in perfect sync with the world’s man-centered philosophies that contradict all biblical foundations.  Operating as controlled opposition, their moralistic motto of “all you have to do is try” has paved the way for secular salvation, thru behavior modification, which requires no divine intervention.

“if the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps. 11:3).

These CoC Arminian operatives have built fleshly “freewill” fortresses against the sovereignty of God that have kept its captives from being spiritually equipped to handle all that is coming upon the earth.  Rather than upholding the flesh-withering doctrines of grace, the modern church has been guilty of syncretism; the mixing of God’s Word with the flesh-exalting ways of the world. And no amount of “happy, happy, happy” pills, patches and piercing poisons can keep such idolatrous, inordinate affections from replacing biblical thought.

No wonder the wide spectrum of New Thought is incrementally gaining the ascendency. For those who accommodate themselves to the culture will always end up becoming prisoners of the present.  But those who are being conformed to Christ have a rock-solid foundation that enables them to transcend the present and all of the devils lies and distractions.

“Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life” (1 Tim. 6:19).

In a frenzied pursuit of the fantastical, the prevailing materialism and scientism of our day has caused many to pierce themselves through (literally) with many “happy, happy, happy” horrors (1 Tim. 6:10). Instead of heeding the command to “redeem the time, for the days are evil” (Eph. 5:16), many are getting so caught up in the fears and cares of this world that they are giving in to the Beast system.

Jesus warned:

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Mt. 6:19-21).

We are not to spend our life laboring in vain while doing nothing of biblical worth. We are not to covet power, poisons, possessions or prestige. Yet sadly, multitudes will close their eyes one last time to all that is in this world, and to all that they had lusted after when they couldn’t take their eyes and their minds off of any of it to look to Christ.  As a result, they will tragically open their eyes in eternal torment.

“Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed” (Jn. 6:27).

Thankfully, God has condescended to disclose Himself in human words, by the Spirit Who convicts His rebellious image bearers of sin and illuminates their darkened hearts and minds to the absolute truth contained in His Word.  So despite such satanic opposition, His kingdom is still forcefully advancing toward its grand consummation (Mt. 11:12), because He has willed for His truth to triumph through His persecuted people.  All to the praise of His glorious grace!

“Who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled” (1 Pet. 3:13-14).

PPE: Plague Propaganda Endgames

All links provided in this post are for research purposes only and do not all necessarily represent my own personal religious views.

After posting this, I will probably be censored even more, but I can’t just sit back and remain silent, while my people are being deceived and destroyed. I need to make it clear that what I am about to share is solely for the purpose of leading people to the true God and Savior of the Bible. So let’s get right down to the nitty gritty, for time is running out.  We can no longer afford to fall for the elites mind games and damage control tactics that are designed to undermine those who expose their evil agendas.

For starters, I’ve been prayerfully studying Genesis 18 concerning God’s destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and the parallel implications of what is coming upon the earth in these last days.  That destruction site is still there as a monument of God’s judgment upon the wicked and a reminder that God fulfills His sovereign purposes and decrees.  Especially note that brimstones are not naturally imbedded in sulfur ash.  This historical site is empirical proof of God’s Word and God’s justice being manifested as a warning to all.

Visit Sodom and Gomorrah now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGovStpdfC0

But it is a great comfort to remember that what true Christians must suffer from the Anti-Christ and his followers, is actually an honorable persecution reserved only for God’s people.  We are not appointed to God’s wrath, which is reserved only for the wicked who don’t know and love the true God and Savior of the Bible (1 Thess. 5:9).  Although the wicked will prosper for a while, by conforming to the world, they will ultimately regret trying to save their lives, for they will lose it forever, because Jesus says…

“whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it” (Mt. 16:25).

Supernatural, diabolical evil is coming our way with the rise of the Anti-Christ system, and many, if not most, will fall for the sinister propaganda. Because all works-based religionists, and humanists have their false, humanistic “freewill” beliefs in common with the whore that rides the beast (Rev. 17), which appears to represent false religion; the one world religion of Anti-Christ, the synagogue of Satan, which has re-established the Sanhedrin that formerly utilized Rome to have Jesus and His followers killed, and is doing the very same thing today against His people (Rev. 2:9-10).  In fact, it goes even deeper than that:

See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHfUUEiiPjs

This is why it is crucial that true believers not get distracted from what has been going on under our noses in Israel, in connection with the Vatican, while so many delusional distractions are being employed to lead people astray on a rabbit trail.  The mainstream media (who all go by the same script) will not put the pieces together for us, so we must watch and pray, while doing our own research. 

See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCFJhI69Zk8

Take a glance at some of the comments for that last video.  Note, “Dr. Weiss” is the spokesperson for the Sanhedrin.  Look him up.  If he and his minions are no threat, then how are they able to sway the whole world into Zionism, which funds the re-building of an apostate 3rd Temple in Jerusalem?  And how is their “Temple Institute” able to come out with all of their dual-citizenship, treasonous “Trump Coins” to fund their agenda?  Why is our government now infiltrated by Jesuits and dual loyalists with Israel?  Just asking.

All I can gather at this point, is that the satanic Talmudist “rabbis” are now thinking they don’t need a physical temple.  They now seem to believe that they ARE the spiritual temple to be worshipped, a belief which would indeed help them to suspend their plans of having to destroy the Muslim mosque before enforcing (through their “Noahide” laws) the world worship of Anti-Christ, because they are getting impatient.

Viewer Discretion Advised….I almost puked when I found out just how blasphemous and disgusting the Jewish Babylonian Talmud is and the fact that the 700 Club has promoted “The Israel Bible” which leaves out the New Testament and quotes from this sickening Babylonian Talmud!!!

Brace yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtvgDGUwmYs&t=51s  

Netanyahu has even stated that this evil Talmud is the law of the land in Israel now. Perhaps this is one reason why the Messianic Jews, who are not going along with the agenda, are so persecuted in Israel by those who claim to be their fellow Jews, but are really of the Kabbalist synagogue of Satan.  Yet many who call themselves Christians are funding the political state of Israel, which is considered to be spiritual Sodom and Egypt (Rev. 11:8)!!!

These news links are very disturbing and I think they have huge implications as to what we are going to face as Christians in America. It is also curiously disturbing that Israeli government supposedly invented 5G, but bans it from being used in Israel.  What is up with that?

https://www.jpost.com/opinion/creating-5g-and-keeping-israel-safe-620800

All Americans need to also wonder why the late President Bush Senior signed in the Jewish “Noahide laws” under the guise of an “Education Day Act” …look it up, it’s in our government records!  They are just waiting for the perfect time to institute them, which would have all Christians beheaded for worshipping Jesus. This would be a perfect fulfillment of the book of Revelation!!

For research purposes only, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDY6Eosh990&t=4919s (Hmm…YouTube had the video REMOVED!! How obvious can they get?!?

Christians are especially in grave danger here in Babylonian America, for these sinister plans have been in the works for years, even centuries, and the wicked are primed for what is next, but so are God’s people!!

  “though this world with devils filled, would threaten to undo us; We will not fear for God hath willed…His truth to triumph through us.  Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also.  The body they may kill, His truth abideth still, His kingdom is forever” (A Mighty Fortress, Martin Luther).

These next two links are a little dated, but still have some very crucial points to consider, concerning America being Mystery Babylon:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5W6HN2J1JI&t=1439s

It is also CRUCIAL to realize these FEMA facts and how “Covid 19” plays right into its agenda: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXX2ZFNBUdc

We must also ask why the CDC, a privately owned, for-profit corporation, is being given governmental powers to dictate to medical workers that they must put a fraudulent diagnosis on death certificates, which they also did with Alzheimer’s (which cannot be officially diagnosed without an autopsy), in order to further a sinister Big Pharma, FEMA agenda.  See for yourself what they are doing concerning “COVID.”

From their own website: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvss/vsrg/vsrg03-508.pdf

We must ask…why all of the fake statistics, and why do our governors pretend to be Christians, while posing with “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgences”??  Also note, this “secret order” has spread all over America and other countries as well. 

See: https://www.kentucky.com/news/politics-government/article240665136.html

And why are they keeping abortion clinics open to slaughter human lives, while claiming they are trying to save human lives by closing churches and businesses?  Why do our governors constantly push the impossible Arminian “freewill” mantras of “do more, try harder”…”you can do this”… And the blasphemous Arminian claims that “we are the captains of our own destiny”??  Are you seeing the connection yet?? …..If not, PLEASE WAKE UP!!!

Why are our leaders pushing the One World ecumenical movement to its ultimate destination? Why the constant brainwashing tactics of “we must pass the test of humanity”…”we are all in this TOGETHER”  “All religions are coming TOGETHER” …..UNITING???  Sound familiar?  Think Jesuit Popery…

It is no coincidence that the Pope is dropping his “vicar” title to make way for the world worship of satan.  His “global pact” with world religious leaders is coming up this year, concerning the “ethics” of AI.  Because it seems that they are planning a “Luciferase quantum dot tattoo” under the skin for those who will receive the special mandated vaccines.  No wonder they want to use a Smartphone app called iRespond that scans the head or palm of the hand to see if people have received the special “digital ID”:

https://www.jpost.com/health-science/coronavirus-biometric-ids-could-be-gamechanger-for-tests-vaccines-624028

Indeed, Corona seems to be a “crowning” event:

https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/nih-clinical-trial-investigational-vaccine-covid-19-begins

Ecumenical anarchy had always been the whole purpose of hyper-socialized media in the first place and look where it has led so many deluded souls who have become severely addicted to a “Smart” phone, who will now probably be the first in line for the special mandated vaccines imbedded with digital tracking mechanisms.  I am not making this crazy stuff up.  Check out all of their “BioTech” medical journals for yourself.  And if none of it shocks you half to death, then you must already be completely dumbed-down and dead inside.  REPENT!!!  And turn to Jesus Christ as your only hope of being brought to spiritual life!

PLEASE start thinking critically and question why American law enforcement has become so militarized:

For even more proof as to why they are clearing out the jails:

https://www.wlwt.com/article/sheriff-to-violators-of-stay-at-home-order-i-have-plenty-of-room-in-my-jail-for-you/32052706

This whole “together” garbage that is purposefully flooding social media seems to be the ultimate ecumenical endgame.  And it is distracting everyone with earthly concerns to get their focus off of eternal concerns.  Everyone seems to be going into survival mode, instead of realizing their desperate need to get right with God before it is forever too late. 

My main focus is on heavenly things, yet everything that I write about is still relevant, for it has EVERYTHING to do with what is going on in this earthly realm, because NOTHING is more important than knowing the truth, the Truth that is only found in the one true Christ and His one true gospel of salvation. Only by knowing and loving Him can one have the discernment to see through the deception.

It amazes me that I wrote about all of this in my book, and now it is all being confirmed more than ever, right before the eyes of all who have spiritual eyes to see through the smokescreens of fear, anger and Jesuit initiated chaos.  The whole world is also now witnessing the Hegelian Dialectic that I wrote about in the “Falling Away” chapter of my book!! ….It is all coming “TOGETHER” alright, right before our eyes!

So dear reader, if you are still looking to hyper-socialized “fakebook” media, the television, “the prince of the power of the air” of corrupt radio stations, the government or the medical establishment to keep you informed on how to “save your life,” you need to repent and turn to the one and only Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ of the Bible, Who is the only escape from eternal punishment in Hell and all of the Hell on earth that is being unleashed.

I plead with you dear reader….PLEASE Remember Jesus’ Words…

I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear Him, which after He hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear Him” (Lk. 12:3-5).

And remember that the wicked, worldly cowards, who believe and love a lie, are the first in line for the eternal Lake of Fire (Rev. 21:8, 22:14).  And those who should have been good under-shepherds of God’s people, who have failed us, are going to receive a stricter judgment.

“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?”  (1 Pet. 4:17)

Counterfeit Calvinism and its Pretended "Liberty of Conscience"

Scripture clearly sets limits on the conscience, but those who are desperate to excuse worldly lifestyles will often resort to exalting “liberty of conscience” to a ludicrous degree.  However, conscience is not the ultimate determiner of moral truth and how we should live out our Christian lives as pilgrims in this world, rather than feeling at home in it.  Though the testimony of conscience holds weight, it can never be completely free to determine what is right and wrong, which would be reverting back to the time of Judges when “every man did that which was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25). 

     When the conscience is given final authority, the door is opened for the justification of all sorts of compromise. Because such an unbiblical pretense of “liberty” degenerates into licentiousness when one deifies the conscience and de-emphasizes the authority of Scripture. And sadly, this is becoming rampant today, even among those who were once stewards of… the faith once delivered to the saints.

     Sadly, we live in a time where even those who claim to believe in the absolute sovereignty of God and who even renounce the false “freewill” doctrine of man, will now often put human conscience on par with God’s Word.  As a result, conscience becomes as authoritative as the Bible when one believes they have the unlimited right to act simply as their conscience dictates. Champions of the faith have often stood against the absolute freedom of man’s will (which would make man supersede God), yet they completely capitulate when they turn around and promote the absolute freedom of the conscience!

     Apostle Paul made it clear that our consciences are to be bound by the absolute verdict of God and His Word,  rather than becoming the final court of appeal, for he stated, “I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord. It is the Lord who judges me” (1 Cor. 4:4).  Like the fallible, limited will of man, our fallible and limited conscience is not to be exalted above the absolute, unlimited freedom and authority of God. Human conscience is fallibly relative and may be overly-sensitive and over-reactive, or it may be under-sensitive and under-reactive, because according to Scripture, it may be seared, misguided, weak or defiled (1 Tim. 4:2, 1 Cor. 8:1-13, Titus 1:15).

   Today, even many so-called “faith-based” operations are using conscience-searing procedures that are often performed through sins of omission, such as failing to expose heresy and its promoters, or by leaving out the seriousness of sin and judgment, which shows that they are not working under the operation of the Holy Spirit, Who comes to reprove the world of sin, righteousness and judgment (Jn. 16:8).  Such systems leave people with no reason to turn whole-heartedly to Christ. Instead, they are led to a false christ that praises self-esteem, cultivates pride and allows them to indulge in a worldly lifestyle that desensitizes them to evil and creates a false sense of peace in their conscience.

     The motto of worldlings with a seared conscience is, “We are delivered to do all these abominations” (Jer. 7:10).  Some even try to compare apples to oranges by misusing Romans 14 or Colossians 2:21 as an excuse to indulge in illicit sins, or to be entertained by those who do, which makes them guilty of the same sins (Rom. 1:32). Abuse of God’s grace has nothing to do with “liberty of conscience.” But when warned, they’ll often try to use the excuse that it’s only God’s job to convict of sin, for they are willfully ignorant of the fact that God uses means…biblical correction, human accountability, warnings, etc. 

     Apostle Paul stated:

“All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any” (1 Cor. 6:12).

Christians can do whatever they want, but their wants have been changed.  They no longer view conformity to Christ as restrictive, but rather view it as instructive on how to follow Him and not be conformed to this world. Paul even deepens this point…

“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not” (1 Cor. 10:23).

Our focus is to now to be on what edifies our brothers and sisters in Christ, not on pridefully and unlovingly flaunting liberty in ways that could cause them to stumble in their faith of Christ (Rom. 14:15). Just because Christians have liberty in the sense that we are no longer in bondage to legalistic restrictions that have nothing to do with true obedience from a regenerated heart, it does NOT mean that worldly things still take a top priority in our lives.

And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Cor. 6:11).

Christians are to be focused on redeeming the time. Paul made clear that we’ve wasted too much time already on worldly things, trying to please people and our own flesh….

“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others” (Eph. 2:2-3). Also see Gal. 5:13).

     While it’s true that the testimony of conscience carries weight when it’s within the bounds of Scripture, its subjective nature prevents it from being biblically qualified as a final authority in determining right and wrong. For instance, though we are to always strive to have “a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men” (Acts 24:16), there are times when we must obey God rather than man (Acts 5:29), which offends man.

In such cases, one will have to be very familiar with God’s objective Word, in order to know the difference and to overcome the devils attempts to manipulate the Christian with false guilt for standing for the cause of Christ, which will always offend those who are conformed to the world and its false religious systems.   

     Another example, is where one’s conscience may be excessively exposed to false guilt trips from pulpits that repetitively blow one single Bible verse completely out of proportion, such as Hebrews 10:25, by constantly harping on the need for Christians to assemble in fellowship, while leaving out the fact that Scripture contains literally hundreds of verses warning about compromising with evil, false doctrines, teachers and missionaries that slip in, rip-off and corrupt many churches. If such pretenders really believed what they harped on, they would not restrict Christian fellowship to such a treasonous turf.

     There are times when one must obey a higher command of God, and only by being immersed in Scripture, rather than the mere dictates of conscience, can one know when those times are, due to the weaknesses and limitations of mere conscience that can be blinded by social and cultural conformity.

 In these last days, it is especially important for Christians to diligently study God’s Word in order to grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord (2 Pet. 3:18), so that one will not be subverted by a false “church life.” It’s very easy to be taken captive by a corrupt system if one continues to try to work from within that system, which is why it is so crucial to obey God’s higher command to come out and be separate.

      “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. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty” (2 Cor. 6:16-18, emphasis mine).

     As a result, one will grow more and more in discernment, whereas, if one stays in compromised churches they will not be able to see the big picture in order to make the right decisions, due to being too close to the problem within the context of “church.” Worse yet, an unbiblical concept of “love” will likely be held in contention with spiritual knowledge and discernment when authoritarian, hierarchal systems try to appeal for tolerance of evil.

Saving knowledge of the true Lord and Savior is the foundation of true, spiritual and biblical love.  According to Scripture, all of these must precede true, biblical love:  saving grace, faith, knowledge of God, peace in Jesus, diligence, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, Christian kindness….. and THEN Christian love (2 Pet. 1:1-7).  The fruits of the Spirit begin with love…love unto the glory and praise of God through Jesus Christ (Phil. 1:11, Gal. 5:22-23), that then leads to a true, biblical love and knowledge that edifies others. And this true love and saving knowledge of God does not come by mans wisdom.

     “Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace” (Jas. 3:13-18, emphasis mine).

     So it’s also important to beware of any who emphasize the love of God, more than His holiness. It is crucial to turn from those who say or imply that love is more important than this knowledge, for it would be an unbiblical concept of love that would leave out the fact that true Christian love is predicated upon a solid foundation of a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is the only way one can escape the sinful pollutions of the world. 

And that initial God-given knowledge grows and deepens over time. However, it is still the same spiritual knowledge, not just a worldly, Arminian take on spiritual things, because saving knowledge concerns the heart, NOT mere speculative knowledge that involves only the intellect, which is all Arminianism really is.  True, spiritual knowledge grasps the truth of Scripture, while godly wisdom applies it.

     “And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment [discernment]; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere [not hypocritical] and without offence till the day of Christ. Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God” (Phil. 1:9-11, emphasis and brackets mine).

     Furthermore, if one ever hears from a pulpit, that those who stand for the particular aspects of what Jesus accomplished on the cross for His people are being “perfect knowledge advocates”….then RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN TO THE DOOR!! Because… the particulars of what Jesus accomplished at the cross are not to EVER be considered “secondary issues” that can be compromised on!!

       Sadly, the slander of true Calvinists being called “perfect knowledge advocates” is also becoming an all too common excuse for counterfeit Calvinists to capitulate when it comes to calling  Arminians to repentance.  If one ever hears from a pulpit about how everyone is at “a different level of knowledge” when it comes to the gospel, or how love is more important than knowledge anyway, or how we must be patient with those who don’t have “as much knowledge as we do”…run for the door as quick as you can, because this is the height of spiritual pride! Besides, true love rejoices in the knowledge of the truth (1 Cor. 13:6).

    True, historic Calvinists know better…that it’s not about “perfect knowledge”….it’s about the gospel!!  UGH!!  Arminianism is not simply a lack of “perfect knowledge,” WHICH NONE OF US HAVE!!  It’s a lack of repentance and belief in the true gospel!!  Jesus saves because He is perfect…NOT because our faith, repentance or knowledge of His truth is perfect! Arminians believe in an incomplete and imperfect savior that can’t save anyone! It is a different faith, a different spirit and a different gospel!!

True Christians do grow in grace and faith, but it is still the SAME GRACE AND FAITH!! Whereas, Arminianism represents a DIFFERENT KIND of grace and faith, the kind that cannot save anyone! There are differences in DEGREE when it comes to true Christian grace and faith, but there are NOT differences in KIND. God’s free gifts of saving grace and faith are of His divine power that actually accomplishes His purposes, rather than providing mere common aids for one to save themselves!!

It IS CRUCIAL TO REMEMBER the difference… there is only ONE FAITH that saves!! And it is God’s free gift of faith in the true Christ of Scripture and what He ACTUALLY ACCOMPLISHED at the cross.

To compromise on this is treason against Christ!

Arminianism is a Sin Because it Blasphemes God

Available at Amazon

Without biblical evidences that true regeneration has taken place, there can be no blessed assurance, but only a superficial, false security that makes excuses for sin, rather than grieving over it, fighting it and pleading for mercy through Christ.  Christians can never reach sinless perfection this side of Heaven, but by God’s grace they will have a tender conscience that will cause them to wage war on sin, rather than rest easy in it. “Let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity” (2 Tim. 2:19).

      God leads His people in paths of righteousness for His name sake, which is why He leads them out of false religion (Ps. 23:3).

“Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God” (2 Cor. 7:1).

The ability to truly “cleanse ourselves” is the fruit of the work God accomplishes in His people, for “the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin. (1 Jn. 1:7). “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works” (Eph. 2:10). So that true Chrsitians can draw near in full assurance of faith with a clean conscience, for He is faithful (Heb. 10:22).

     He transforms His people for His name sake and for the sake of godliness, so that they cannot continue in a perpetual pattern of sin. They can no longer in good conscience join a false religion or stay in one once they learn the truth.  They can no longer in good conscience sit through heretical Bible studies, for He calls them out.  Though it may take them a while to discern the leading of their Savior, once they do, they will not be led by another spirit (Jn.10).  They would rather suffer “without the camp, bearing His reproach” (Heb. 13:13).

     God is jealous for His worship, and commands that it not be mixed with lies:

“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, Whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God” (Ex. 34:14). “Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than He” (1 Cor. 10:21-22)?

     According to God’s Word, Paul feared that his people might “put up with” false teachers who proclaim a false Jesus and a false gospel (2 Cor. 11:1-4), because it would indicate that their mind had been corrupted and subtly deceived by the devil, even if they had so much as simply tolerated such.  Paul grieved jealously for his people, for he knew that if they turned from the true gospel that he was giving them, they would turn to fatally deceived deceivers, and ultimately end up turning from God (2 Tim. 3:13).

     Jesus said we cannot serve two masters (Mt. 6:24). We’re either slaves to sin or slaves to righteousness (Rom. 6:19). There are no lukewarm in-betweens. This same warning is reiterated in 2 John vv. 9-11, which exclaims that we’re not even supposed to give deceivers a greeting (in a way that would be approving their false doctrine), or we’ll be “a partaker of their evil deeds.” That’s how serious God’s pure worship is.  Jesus revealed that those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (Jn. 4:23-24).

     So dear reader, if you are still sinfully involved in a false religion that blasphemes the true God of Scripture by teaching the lie that Jesus died for all (even those who are in Hell), sinfully counting His blood as a common thing, and teaches that you can be saved by exercising your own “freewill,” (which is a façade) rather than total dependence upon God’s sovereign free grace to give you faith in the true Christ Who saves all those He died for….

….then you need to fall on your face before God and cry to Him for mercy, clinging to THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST ALONE, and renouncing every ounce of your former life of self-righteous pride and indifference to the insurmountable, perfect righteousness and holiness of God.
