"Our Mighty God And Counsellor Jesus Christ"

(Luke 6:46) “And why call me Lord, Lord, and do not the things that I say.”  If someone is Lord than they should have both the authority and the expectation of having their commands met and obeyed. To not obey Our Lord would be a rejection of both His authority and His will, and yet that is exactly what Christians do when they don’t listen to the counsel and commands of Jesus Christ and His Word. In (Isaiah 9:6) Jesus is called both “The Mighty God and Counselor.” Which means that as God he has supreme authority and the unquestionable ability to counsel men in his perfect wisdom. The problem in our world today is that man has increased so much in his knowledge and learning that in many cases he places more trust in what man thinks than in what God says in His Word. For example, just as you wouldn’t go to a Pastor for brain surgery, why then go to the world for spiritual advice and wisdom. The true and eternal wisdom of this world comes solely from God. We are so foolish when we listen to men above the Word of God. (1 John 5:9)If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater:..” For the best that man has to offer is just his opinion, but God’s counsel will forever be absolutely right. When Jesus came into this world, he was indeed fully God embodied in mortal flesh, therefore his counsel is the councel of Almighty God Himself

Called By The Gospel Of God

(Rom. 1:16)  “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”  The gospel of Jesus Christ is not just the biblical account of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, but it’s also the power behind our salvation, our walk, and service for the Lord. 1) God’s gospel calls all men to salvation. All men, meaning even those who do not believe Him.God so loved man that He sent His prophets to preach salvation to man long before He came himself in Christ to show man the way. And so, from the very beginning of time God has been calling men to repent of sin and trust in Him and His Word. 2) God’s gospel call is to  “whosoever will.” It’s not just limited to the Jew, but it’s also available to anyone who desires forgiveness and peace with God. Unfortunately, although all men are called only a few answer back and find salvation. 3) God’s gospel calls every Christian to share it.It’s now our…

Salvation Is Through Christ Alone

(Rom. 14:11-12) “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” One day all men will stand in judgment before God, but there will be a special “great white throne judgment”(Rev. 20:11-15) set aside for the unsaved where God himself will explain to the unsaved that salvation apart from trusting in Jesus Christ is impossible. Different types of arguments and excuses will be given there: 1) Arguments by the Heathen Man . He believes that because he has never heard of Jesus he has an excuse, but God will show him that he once had the truth but rejected it. For all men came off  Noah’s Ark, unfortunately those that forsook God damned the next generations to follow by replacing God with the idols and the lies of men. So, no matter where man is found on earth he is guilty of rejecting God’s way of salvation for his own. That’s why Missions is so important today, fo…
