Why I preach the Cross
The Winning Team
2Pe 2:1-3 KJV - But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
The litmus test is simple, if what is being proclaimed is not Christ and His Finished Work without compromise then it is not of God, but instead, doctrines of devils creeping in unawares to draw away the very elect. The Way is just that narrow and sadly few be there that find it.
And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the Way of Truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
The Cross-Eyed Narrow-minded Contenders for the Faith are under attack as never before, being evil spoken of, but stand strong Brothers and Sisters In the Faith, for the best days are yet ahead. God is moving and I am glad to be moving with Him. Stir up the gifts that are in you, make a stand, take heed unto The Doctrine, and keep fighting the Good Fight of Faith putting those in remembrance of this Glad Story continually until that great day when the Trump of God sounds, for this is the Work of God.
2Ti 4:1-5 KJV - I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
1Ti 4:6 KJV - If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
1Ti 4:16 KJV - Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
2Ti 1:6-10 KJV - Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
There are many today who are discouraged, many who are going through some very difficult times. For many it seems as if the full arsenal of the enemy is upon you, but I encourage you to stand strong and be of good courage, there is a time to keep pressing forward but there are also times we need to stand still and see the Salvation of the Lord, a time to allow patience to have her perfect work, a time to hear the still small voice of the Lord; however, there is never a time to give in, give up, or give way. God has a plan, He is at work rather you feel His presence or not, continue to seek first the Kingdom of God, for He knows what you have need of. We must also understand there are times when we too must be shown what we are truly in need of, a time to refocus, regroup, take an account, and make sure we are continuing to stay determined to know nothing save Christ and Him Crucified, continuing to Rest In Him, continuing to remain true to His will. I know how easy it is to try and get ahead of God and to become discontent with the present, but again, God is at Work the battle is His. Don’t give up, keep knocking, keep seeking, keep asking, for God shall supply ALL your needs according to His riches in Glory, for we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. Take this time to lift up the Mighty Name of God, Praise Him, Worship Him, for God inhabits the praises of His people and know that your Victory is just ahead, you are on the winning team.
God Bless, Bro. Scott.
A Narrow-minded, Cross-eye, Determined,
Contender for the Faith of Christ and Him Crucified.
