"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32

THE VALUE OF GOD’S WORD

by A.M. Kisly

In a day where most hold such little regard for God's Word; where even many of God's own have yet to learn of its worth,  today's post is a wonderful reminder of its intrinsic value.  Oh the immeasurable height, depth, and the breadth of God's word.  It has cost many wonderful Saints their precious lives in order that future generations have God's Word in their hands, to read with their own eyes and to understand it....let us also contemplate the cost of our Lord Jesus Christ, that we might have His Father's Word living in our hearts.

"Let it not make thee despair, neither yet discourage thee, O reader, that it is forbidden thee in pain of life and goods, or that it is made breaking of the king's peace, or treason unto his highness, to read the Word of thy soul's health—for if God be on our side, what matter maketh it who be against us, be they bishops, cardinals, popes."    
 -- William Tyndale

William Tyndale could speak seven languages and was proficient in ancient Hebrew and Greek. He was a man whose intellectual gifts and disciplined life could have taken him a long way in the church—had he not had one compulsion: to teach English men and women the good news of justification by faith.

Tyndale was tried for heresy and in early August 1536, Tyndale was condemned as a heretic, and delivered to the secular authorities for punishment.

He was brought to the cross in the middle of the town square and given a chance to recant. That refused, he was given a moment to pray. English historian John Foxe said he cried out, "Lord, open the King of England's eyes!"

Then he was bound to the beam, and both an iron chain and a rope were put around his neck. Gunpowder was added to the brush and logs. At the signal of a local official, the executioner, standing behind Tyndale, quickly tightened the noose, strangling him. Then an official took up a lighted torch and handed it to the executioner, who set the wood ablaze.

How do we respond to so great a sacrifice?

The HARBINGER – HOAX or HISTORY? Part Two

By James Fire
We now continue with our examination of The HARBINGER by Jonathan Cahn based on the book by David James: The HARBINGER: FACT OR FICTION.


PARALLELS ARE NOT PROPHETIC

The idea that events and proclamations in Israel were mirrored in America’s own events and proclamations inevitably mean that they are in some mysterious way connected is fallacious.
After all, there were plagues in Egypt, such as the immense and devastating swarms of locusts; yet there have likewise been locust plagues elsewhere in the world.
Those plagues in Egypt were a result of God’s judgment upon that nation for refusing to let the children of Israel go.
Does this necessarily mean that other nations were likewise under God’s judgment when they suffered such plagues?

What distinguishes the one from the other is the fact that the judgment of Egypt was foretold in the Scriptures as a judgment sent from God; other locust plagues have not.

If such a connection between Israel and America is a mystery revealed by God, then the one to whom this mystery was revealed would have to be considered a prophet. Yet was this mystery truly revealed by God to Cahn? Does he consider himself a prophet?

BEHOLD, I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW



The following is based on a sermon delivered at The HOUSE of TRUTH Fellowship on Dec. 30th 2012
 
~~ By James Fire

Christmas is now behind us and we are now into a brand new year; at home we have all sorts of gifts, new things given to us by our loved ones – new clothes, new toys, new books, new games, new albums, new gadgets… all of them, bright and shiny and new.

By next Christmas however, all of these new gifts will become old: they will fade, wear down, and perhaps be in need of repair. That’s the way of things in this world – nothing stays new forever, things wear away and break down. Have you ever wondered why this is so? Why don’t things remain new, and fresh and in perfect working order? ~The scientific answer is that principle known as the Second Law of thermodynamics or entropy.

This entire universe is like an enormous clock that is slowly winding down and one day will stop. Things that are in order eventually fall into disorder – they wear away and break down. They get old, they rust; they rot.

The spiritual answer is the condition known as sin.
