a Pure WORD is for a Pure HEART

A Pure WORD is only the beginning…. A Pure HEART is the End Goal!!!
1 Timothy 1:5 Now the END of the COMMANDMENT is Charity (Love) out of a PURE Heart, and of a Good Conscience, and of Faith Unfeigned (not faked)…

Calvinism & American Slavery

Calvinism is  part of the root cause of slavery in this nation. John Wesley and George Whitfield were contemporaries. Wesley preached against slavery. George Whitfield, a Calvinist, preached in favor of slavery, for the sake of profit and creating a succesful nation. Georgia was a state that had banned slavery until Whitfield preached and promoted it. George Whitfield is considered the spiritual founding father of America. How’s that for division? Spiritual caste systems helped create political and economic caste systems.

Pure Religion is Compassionate AND Clean

Righteousness mixed with filthiness is ineffective. Holiness mixed with injustice is hypocritical. Its important to be both Holy AND Righteous. Both Compassionate AND Clean. The Father’s Pure Religion is not only to VISIT the poor, fatherless and widow – but also to keep yourself UNSPOTTED from this sinful world.
The Grace of Jesus is the power to do this.

Emotions are the Slave. Logic is the Master.

Emotions can either help you or kill you. Logical decision making will only help you. Make sure your feelings are the slave, not the master.

Are You Calvinist or Arminianist? I’m a Bride & Bridegroomist.

The Holy Spirit chooses to describe salvation with the analogy of a bride & bridegroom. Who chooses, the Bride or the Bridegroom? Answer is: both. It’s not pride or self-glorification: we are made in the image of God. Simple truth. Foolish men choose to argue about Calvinism & Arminianism. Thats why these silly arguments go on for centuries.

Well Done Good & Faithful Servant

If you want to hear the Master say “Well done, good and faithful servant,” then you have to know that “good” work represents quality & purity, and that “faithful” work represents quantity over time.

2 Timothy 2: 20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

1 Corinthians 3: 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Malachi 3: 13 Your words have been stout against me, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee? 14 Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts? 15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they thattempt God are even delivered. 16 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lordhearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.

Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

1 Corinthians 15:58  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not invain in the Lord.

 

Matthew 10:42
And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
God loves everyone the same. No one can earn salvation. But more obedient work does equal more rewards. If we don’t teach that, we promote the mentality that you can do whatever you want your whole life, (just be sure to “pray the prayer” before you die), and that its unprofitable to serve God. This is a dangerous mentality.

Quality and Quantity matters.

  • Your labor is not in vain in the LORD. Quality work adds up over the years.
  • God’s benefits package is 2nd to none. He has the best offer!
  • God is not unrighteous and He will not forget your labor of love. God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.
  • It is not vain to serve the LORD. God is an expert accountant and He is writing down everything you do for the glory of His Name.
  • When He comes – His reward is with Him!
