Search the Scriptures


37 And the Father who sent Me has Himself testified about Me. You have never heard His voice nor seen His form, 38 nor does His word abide in you, because you do not believe the One He sent. 39 You pore over the Scriptures because you presume that by them you possess eternal life. These are the very words that testify about Me, 40 yet you refuse to come to Me to have life.

Please watch these videos. Whether you are a born-again Christian, a Jehovah’s Witness, or if you are searching for answers, we all need to know prior to joining an organization or church.

Sanctity of Life vs Darwinism and Evolution


THE SAD CONFUSION EXPERIENCED IN TODAY’S POLITICAL CLIMATE

Those who wish to expound abortion as a basic human right and who use this argument as a political tool to gain votes are finding themselves in an awkward conundrum with the availability of factual information in today’s world. The old argument that prenatal life really isn’t life has been shattered with scientific evidence. Life begins at conception.

Psalm 139:15 My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in secret, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16Your eyes saw my unformed body; all my days were written in Your book and ordained for me before one of them came to be.17 How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God, how vast is their sum!…

With advanced ultrasonic equipment, there is little reason to argue that the pre-born child isn’t a child with human responses to pain and stimuli. 

SANCTITY OF LIFE VERSUS EVOLUTION 

Sunday, January 20, 2019 is Sanctity of Human Life Day.

This is a time to make others aware of the devastating effects of abortion on our society. 

National Right to Life estimates that, since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion 43 years ago in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton , more than 58 million unborn children have lost their lives. Each one of those abortions is a tragedy, not just because an innocent child died, but because of the lasting impact the abortion itself had on the mothers of those children.

One cannot help wonder how many lives could have been saved and how much greater our respect for life would be if the false teachings of Darwin and subsequent evolutional theories had never been allowed to be taught as scientific factual information in public schools. Political activists were able to stop the teaching of creation as they gained the right to teach Darwinism and evolution. 

The time has come in the USA for parents, citizens, and especially Christians to get serious about the tragic effect the teaching of evolution has had upon our society. We have a responsibility to protect life and our children. 

Creationists Point to Huge Holes in the Evolutionary Theory

Does Darwinism Devalue Human Life?

DNA

The study of DNA has been touted as final proof, but is the opposite reality?

What Does 85% DNA Similarity Mean?

So, how similar is chimpanzee DNA to human? My research indicates that raw chimpanzee DNA sequences from data sets with significantly lower levels of human DNA contamination are on average about 85% identical in their DNA sequence when aligned onto the human genome. Therefore, based on the most recent, unbiased, and comprehensive research, chimpanzee DNA is no more than 85% similar to human.

So, what does 85% DNA similarity really mean? First of all, it’s important to note that for human evolution to seem plausible, a DNA similarity of 99% is required. This is based on known current mutation rates in humans and an alleged splitting of humans from a common ancestor with chimpanzees about three to six million years ago. This length of time is a mere second on the evolutionary timescale. Any level of similarity much less than 99% is evolutionarily impossible. This is why evolutionists rely on all sorts of monkey business when it comes to comparing human and chimpanzee DNA—they must achieve a figure close to 99% or their model collapses.

PERHAPS SUNDAY, JANUARY 20, 2019 MAY BE THE TRUE BEGINNING OF SANCTITY OF LIFE IN AMERICA .

Let No One Steal Your HOPE OF HEAVEN – Colossians 1:4-5


CHRIST – OUR HOPE OF HEAVEN

With Christ coming to earth, the Kingdom of heaven was at hand.

And (John the Baptist) saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Matthew 3:2

ref=”https://jlue.wordpress.com/2019/01/13/let-no-one-steal-your-hope-of-heaven-colossians-14-5/afaeb377-d7f0-4961-baae-6d5a662a7ddf/” rel=”attachment wp-att-18921″> But according to His promise we are waiting for new heavens…2 Peter 3:13[/ca

Paul taught we have a hope of heaven because of our faith in Christ:

Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints, for the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel… Colossians 1:4-5

LET NO ONE STEAL YOUR HOPE

Watchtower has convinced millions of their followers that they have no hope of going to heaven when they die. One verse they use is Christ saying the ‘meek shall inherit the earth.’ They seem to ignore that in this same sermon Jesus said:

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3

Some of the most comforting Scripture passages are those Bible verses about heaven which offer a glimpse into the blessed eternal life that God has promised to all who trust in Jesus.

“to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept IN HEAVEN for you,” 1 Peter 1:4

WHAT MORE DID JESUS SAY ABOUT HEAVEN?

Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:19-20

And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 8:11

And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.Matthew 10:7

At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:1-3

Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. Matthew 19:21

…so that now through the church the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, 11according to the purpose of the ages, which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12in whom we have boldness and access in confidence, by faith in Him. 13 Therefore I implore you not to lose heart at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. 14… for reason of this I bow my knees to the Father, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named. Ephesians 3:10-15

Revelation 21:1-5 gives us an assurance that heaven will be a wonderful place for all of God’s people who are ‘in Christ.’ John was given this vision, but Paul also wrote of the wonder of God’s plan for those who trust in Christ:

1 Corinthians 2:9 “But, as it is written, What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him””

WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO LOSE IN ORDER TO GAIN CHRIST?


MARY’S DECISION

When Gabriel appeared to the young virgin Mary so many years ago he said to her:

Luke :30 So the angel told her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 Behold, you will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David, 33 and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever. His kingdom will never end!”

Mary was faced with a decision. Her decision required faith because it came with great risks. As a betrothed young girl who had not known a man, to become pregnant would mean that her espoused husband Joseph could have her brought before the Jewish council  and she could have been stoned. If he put her away privately, she faced humiliation before her family and village. Her decision couldn’t have been an easy one.

Luke 2:11 Today… a Savior has been born to you. He is Christ the Lord!

COST OF FOLLOWING CHRIST

Today many who are called to follow Christ face equally difficult decisions. Muslims who trust Christ risk their lives.  A Jew who chooses to place faith in Christ as their Savior risks being disfellowshipped and shunned. Depending on circumstances, following Christ always comes with a cost. See “If I Convert to Christianity”

BLESSINGS OF OBEDIENCE 

Mary was blessed because of her acceptance of God’s will:

Luke 1:46 Then Mary said: “My soul magnifies the Lord, 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior! 48 For He has looked with favor on the humble state of His servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed. 49 For the Mighty One has done great things for me. Holy is His name.

TRUSTING GOD MEANS RECEIVING CHRIST

When we are called to become Christians, we are called to trust God and believe in Christ as our personal Savior. Jesus said:

Mark 8:34-37 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Romans 10:8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart,”that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: 9 that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved.

All who choose Christ are blessed:

Ephesians 1:3-5 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure…9  And He has made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to bring all things in heaven and on earth together in Christ. 11  Him we were also chosen as God’s own, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything by the counsel of His will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, would be for the praise of His glory. 13 And in Him, having heard and believed the word of truth—the gospel of your salvation—you were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is the pledge of our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession, to the praise of His glory.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

CHRISTMAS CONTROVERSY

Jesus said,  John 15:18  “If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me first.” We should not be surprised that many people in the world war against Christmas, the celebration of the advent of Christ into the world. Atheists want no mention of the name of Christ Jesus anytime. Muslims are offended by our nationwide celebration of the birth of Jesus because they place Mohammed above Christ. JW’s Watchtower call Christmas celebrations pagan. Secularists want to change the season from “Christmas” to “Holiday Season” so those who do not trust Christ will be able to claim the holiday as their own even if it diminishes Christ.

Who is really behind this ‘doing away with Christmas?’  I suggest that the enemy of Christ is behind this.

The Christ of Christmas – Why we should celebrate!

WHO IS THIS BABY BORN IN BETHLEHEM?

Christ life on earth changed the world, so much so that time itself is now counted around this one event!

Shepherds were the first to be told about Christ birth. Angels announced His birth. A star  ⭐️ stood over the stable and led Magi from the East who worshiped Him, but the world wondered; who is this Jesus? Is He really Emmanuel, God with us? Why should we celebrate? 

ow when jesus was born in bethlehem of judaea in the days of herod ...

Christ brought the New Covenant into effect, did away with the Old Covenant and established His church. The world would never be the same.

HOW DID MEN FIRST COME TO KNOW?

At the time of His birth, there were many people in Bethlehem. The lowest class of people were shepherds. The person on top was the king. Would the king be first to know? Not at all. The dirty, smelly shepherds first received the…

WHAT IS THE FOUNDATION OR BASIS FOR CHRISTIAN FAITH?

For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:11

During the days of the early church, believer’s had a strong faith. The Romans  allowed the Jews to practice their religion until Christ came, preached, was crucified and resurrected. At this time, persecution began and the apostles were ordered not to use the NAME of Christ or speak in His name. Acts 4

Some people still live by faith in the only Begotten Son of God. Many, however, question His deity and even the identity of Christ.

Acts 4:24
When the believers heard this, they lifted up their voices to God with one accord. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “You made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them.

WHY IS THERE EVEN A QUESTION?

Why would anyone…
