The Valley Of Death

 


Psalms 23

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.

 

Scripture quotation from NKJV

Jesus Believes In Every Word Of God As Inerrant, Do You?

Two different formats for the same post.

2. Text Form: It contains the full message which is found below the video.

Matthew 24:14

14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

“this gospel” refers to the message that Jesus preached and taught the people, and revealed its meaning to His disciples.

Jesus is telling His disciples that in the future, God’s Word will endure and continue until the end so that people can get saved.

Those who reject the inerrancy of Scripture will answer: Yes, the Scriptures will endure to the end, but it doesn’t mean that it won’t contain errors. It will still have enough truth to save people.

Is that what Jesus believes about His Word? Let’s take a look at what Jesus believes about the very Words of God.

Matthew 4:4

4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”

Jesus reveals that men (all present believers & future ones) must align their lives on every word which is found in every page of the Bible.

Jesus knows the future and said that His gospel, every word of it, will endure to the end. He declares that all men must live according to the Words that haven’t been corrupted. Did Jesus say that? No, my friends.

He said on every single Word of Scripture.

We can conclude that since Jesus is God, knows the future, and having unlimited powers to protect His Word, we can rest assured that what He said in Matthew 4:4 is trustworthy. Don’t believe those who try to convince you otherwise.

Friends, believe in what Jesus said about His own Words.

My brothers, show your genuine salvation by trusting in the very Words of God and obeying them because, in the end, Jesus seeks obedience,…

…obedience to what?

To His Word.

Jesus Commands Us To Expect His Return

light and dark1

Luke 12:35-37

35 “Be ready for service and have your lamps lit. 36 You are to be like people waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet so that when he comes and knocks, they can open the door for him at once. 37 Blessed will be those servants the master finds alert when he comes. Truly I tell you, he will get ready, have them recline at the table, then come and serve them.

The passages above show a Pre-Trib rapture, not a Post-Trib. 

“Be ready for service and have your lamps lit.” To shine (lamps lit) is to allow the Light in you who is the Holy Spirit to use or make you busy in God’s work. 

“You are to be like people waiting for their master” Christians are commanded to be living a life of expectation, of the return or the rapture of the church. The word “master” refers to Jesus Christ. 

so that when he comes and knocks, they can open the door for him at once.” To open the door by hearing Jesus’ knock suggest for the person to be in a state of readiness (alert) by investing one’s time, and resources in doing God’s will.

Blessed will be those servants the master finds alert when he comes.” The word “bless” also means happy. Happy are those who are being led by the Spirit of God in expanding the kingdom of heaven when Jesus returns. 

To have an expectation of the return of Jesus before the Great Tribulation gives a person increased alertness in preparedness by accomplishing His purposes designed for them according to Scripture to bring people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. 

Full Preterism says that Jesus already has returned and is reigning spiritually, Satan is bound in the bottomless pit, and we are living in the New Earth. Preterism is a belief that deceives the believers in Christ by taking away the hope of their redemption seen in the future return of Jesus Christ. 

Luke 21:28

28 But when these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near.”
