Christians and Civic Responsibilities

For me, the reality is very simple. Regardless of who wins the Oval Office, Satan’s plan for world domination will continue unabated. He will get what he wants because God is allowing that to happen. That’s the only reason he will get what he wants, but please note that even there, Satan is playing right into God’s hands and God will hold Satan up to ridicule to the entire Creation, which will then be forced to recognize there is only one God, one Almighty, one Most High. Not only will Satan be forced to reckon it, but this evil world will also see it and be forced to accept it. That’s what this whole thing is all about.

Moses: Anger, My Greatest Regret

In reality, I believe Moses’ anger not only kept him from entering the Promised Land, but ruined the perfect imagery that God Himself had desired to provide through the two instances of bringing water from the rock through Moses. Once the mistake was made, there was no going back and even though surely forgave Moses his sin, the consequences of Moses’ sin remained and he was not allowed to enter into the Promised Land but died and was buried outside that Land in a place known only to God Himself.

Britain Exits from the European Union (EU)

Whether the EU completely fails or not is immaterial. Eventually, another “union” of nations will rise up and rule the world. This all may very well lead to the rise of the ten kings spoken of in Revelation 17. From these ten another will rise who will be the 11th. He will destroy three, leaving seven of the original ten and he himself will become the eighth (Daniel 7:24). The Bible is a holistic unit and must be interpreted against itself. Shoebat doesn’t do that at all. He simply picks and chooses which verses speak to him and seem to support his theories.

Walid Shoebat Espouses Some Powerful Callousness

I want to state that I fully reject and condemn Shoebat’s words, the callousness of his attitude, and his seeming absolute lack of Christlike love toward all people. But again, this is often where Dominionism leads, in my opinion. It breeds contempt for others. It sees people who oppose Christianity as the enemy. In one sense, those who remain lost are enemies of God, just as those of us who are now Christians were all enemies of God prior to embracing salvation (Colossians 1:21), but these people are not our enemies and there is a huge difference. Paul speaks clearly about this when he tells us quite plainly that our battle is not against flesh and blood (human beings), but against those in the spiritual realm (Ephesians 6:12).

Can We Biblically Love People Enough?

Here are various Bible passages that define God’s definition of love. Please go there and take the time to read them, analyze them, contemplate them, and ask the Lord to help you live them. I will state very clearly that I know that I do not love enough (and certainly not perfectly!), and you probably don’t either. This doesn’t mean we ignore sin, but we’d better be spending more time noticing our own sin before we point fingers at others.

What’s in a Metaphor Anyway?

Were the Israelites right in thinking that the land was quite rich when God used the term “milk and honey”? Was it okay for them to conclude that all their provisions would be met while living on the Land (provided of course, they continued to worship and obey God), or was God merely exaggerating? I think most would agree that their expectations related the Land God was giving them were quite accurate and did not rise above God’s intended expectations. In that way then, they understood the meaning of God’s language about the Land flowing with “milk and honey” quite literally.

It’s All About Dominionism, Kingdom Now, and the New Apostolic Reformation, Part 8

As I’ve stated before, the overall problem with human attempts to institute a “Christian theocracy” especially using Old Testament laws to do so, is that the concept of grace is gone. Beyond this, people involved in this movement are actually declaring that God is incapable of doing it Himself. Moreover, the question of who – or which group – would actually be in charge of such a system also needs to be asked. Unlike Israel of old, we do not have an “urim and thummin” as was used by the Old Testament Jewish priests. Even if we did, we have no clue how the priests determined God’s will from using it. Colossians 2:17 tells us these things were merely a shadow of the things that were found in Jesus. They are gone. North wants to bring them back.
