NOT a GOSPEL of accommodation

 

John 1:17

King James Version

17 For the law was given by Moses, 

but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.


GOD's GOSPEL aims to please no one.

It is for His glory.

That all may know His love.

That all may know His truth.

That all may know His commands.

That all may know His SPIRIT.

That all may know His SON.

That all may honor JESUS and the CROSS.

1 Corinthians 2:2

King James Version

2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, 

save Jesus Christ, 

and him crucified.


Scripture came from GOD.

For His perfect purpose.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

King James Version

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, 

and is profitable for doctrine, 

for reproof, 

for correction, 

for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, 

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.


The LORD's GOSPEL is not meant to accommodate popular beliefs, wrong notions, materialistic desires, imperious aspirations, changing times, and anything of the world.

It is the LORD's TRUTH, and must not be modified in any way.

Neither must Scripture be ignored.

As apostle John said in the Book of Revelation:

Revelation 22:18-19

King James Version

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth 

the words of the prophecy of this book, 

If any man shall add unto these things, 

God shall add unto him the plagues 

that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away 

from the words of the book of this prophecy, 

God shall take away his part out of the book of life, 

and out of the holy city, 

and from the things which are written in this book.


The will of the LORD stands.

Subject to no man.

Subject to no whims, fancies, or vanities of the world.

Proverbs 19:21

King James Version

21 There are many devices in a man's heart; 

nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, 

that shall stand.


Isaiah 40:8

King James Version

8 The grass withereth, 

the flower fadeth: 

but the word of our God 

shall stand for ever.


Matthew 24:35

King James Version

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, 

but my words shall not pass away.

But nothing will come of these latest impostors. Everyone will see through them, just as people saw through that Egyptian hoax.

The REASON for wars

 

Psalm 9:17

King James Version

17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, 

and all the nations that forget God.


The beauty about being born again, being a believer in JESUS, being taught by SPIRIT each day, and living by the Bible, is that there are no surprises.

All have been prophesied.

All battles are spiritual battles.

War, or peace?

The reasons for it?

It's all been prophesied.

GOD knows who, and what we are.

There are wars, chaos, confusion, murders, misery, because nations have FORGOTTEN God.

They listen to false prophets.

Matthew 24:11

King James Version

11 And many false prophets shall rise, 

and shall deceive many.


They listen to false doctrines.

Galatians 1:6-10

King James Version

6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him 

that called you into the grace of Christ 

unto another gospel:

7 Which is not another; 

but there be some that trouble you, 

and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

8 But though we, 

or an angel from heaven, 

preach any other gospel unto you 

than that which we have preached unto you, 

let him be accursed.

9 As we said before, 

so say I now again, 

if any man preach any other gospel unto you 

than that ye have received, 

let him be accursed.

10 For do I now persuade men, 

or God? 

or do I seek to please men? 

for if I yet pleased men, 

I should not be the servant of Christ.


We've scrapped GOD from our homes, from our schools, from our industries, and our nations.

And we wonder why there's war?

We wonder why people have become lawless?

The LORD JESUS prophesied it:

Matthew 24:12

King James Version

12 And because iniquity shall abound, 

the love of many shall wax cold.


But JESUS also assures us:

Matthew 24:13

King James Version

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, 

the same shall be saved.


Take heed, nations.

Let us RETURN to the LORD now.

Isaiah 55:7

King James Version

7 Let the wicked forsake his way, 

and the unrighteous man his thoughts: 

and let him return unto the Lord, 

and he will have mercy upon him; 

and to our God, 

for he will abundantly pardon.


The nation that GOD blesses:

Psalm 33:12

King James Version

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; 

and the people whom he hath chosen 

for his own inheritance.


The principles of the BIBLE remain the same.

But how many really listen?

Time to listen to JESUS now.
