Does God Know or Does He Not Know?

But if God sees all, why do we read portions of Scripture where it appears – at least on the surface – that God doesn’t have a full or complete understanding of a particular situation and because of that, needs to actually come down to the physical location of earth, walk around, and see things for Himself? What is the true meaning of that?

Prophecies of Isaiah, Pt 7

It will be interesting to see what transpires over the next few years regarding Babylon. Will it rise again? If so, what will it be like? Chances are great that this city, according to Scripture, will be rebuilt and play a part in the coming Tribulation. However, what is far more important for each and every Christian is to live in a way that glorifies God so that others might see the difference in our lives and be pointed to the God of glory, who has died for their sin.

Today’s Prophet Who Comes with Signs and Wonders

The question all listeners should ask when hearing from someone claiming to be a “voice” of God is what is his/her message? Does that message align with what God teaches? Even if their message comes with signs and wonders that appear to be spiritual, but the message itself opposes God’s truth, it must be shunned. In fact, Moses went so far to say that a person who speaks in such a way, even with the presentation of signs/wonders, should be killed.

Speaking the Truth in Love

It’s easy for us to judge. It’s easy to want to pray the type of imprecatory prayer that David prayed. He can be excused because he did not have the entirety of Scripture at his disposal as we do. However, the Christian’s strength is in seeking God, in submitting ourselves to Him and allowing Him and His love for the lost work in and through us in order to reach the lost of this world. That is how He set things up and that is how He expects us to move through this world.

Why Does a Closer Walk Often Mean Ethereal to So Many?

More Christians need to realize that knowing God is not through ecstatic experiences like speaking in tongues or some emotional high that we are to take as directing our steps. The life of a Christian is often mundane because it involves submitting ourselves to Him and His purposes, which means constantly pushing Self to the rear. This is not fun and anyone who tells you the process is fun may not be doing it right. I can guarantee you from Scripture that Self will do everything it can to be top dog! Paul says we should wrestle with it to subdue it (Romans 8:13; 1 Corinthians 9:27). This is exactly what Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane. It was so intense, He sweated great drops of blood (Luke 22:39-46). Try to imagine that and yes, it is an actual medical situation where the stress or tension of a situation can dilate the blood vessels until it appears as though the person is bleeding from the forehead or face.

Does the Southern Baptist Convention Still Have a Stain On It? by Ed Dingess

What exactly are the SBC leaders doing? What exactly is William McKissic doing? Are we to think that unless the SBC adopts a resolution condemning something as obviously sinful as white supremacy that our members and churches may be deceived into adopting it? I find even the hint of such a suggestion outrageous.

Darkened Thinking Leads Only to Complete Lack of Truth

The subject of “walk-ins” is interesting because it actually lets people off the hook. People are no longer responsible for anything if a “walk-in” has exchanged places with the spirit that was originally housed in their bodies. This is garbage. Even when a person is possessed by demons, the person still has a self-awareness. They are still there. They did not leave their body and move to another place. They were overpowered by demonic activity and those “strong men” now reside in that person with their spirit. Only God can deliver them from that.
