"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 . . .

WARRIOR's CREED

The following article was written by Greg Reid, of Youthfire! ministries and appears here by permission, unedited and unabridged from its original published date of February 13, 2014.

1. JESUS IS NOT “PART” OF MY LIFE!
Jesus IS my life. I will not give Him 10% of my money, time or obedience. By His grace, I will lay my life down at His feet and give Him 100%. I am not my own.

2. I WILL WATCH MY WORDS.
Proverbs says that life and death is in the power of the tongue. More people have been destroyed by lying, criticism, judgmentalism and gossip than by any war. Before I speak, I will weigh my words, and the consequences. I will pray, “Set a watch at my lips, O Lord.”

The GOSPEL of MATTHEW: Ch. 28:1-20 –The MESSIAH and HIS KINGDOM MESSAGE


~ By James Fire

There are many people who insist that there is no difference among all the religions of the world; that they are all basically the same (and there is some merit to this, see the “TWO RELIGIONS” video at the conclusion of this final study of MATTHEW). Aside from addressing the obvious differences of monotheism, polytheism and pantheism, there are diametrically opposed differences between Islam and Hinduism, and the even more drastic differences between those two, Talmudic Judaism and biblical Christianity.

The one factor that separates Christianity from ALL world religions is the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Suppose for a moment that Jesus was just a man and made the claim (as He did) that He would rise from the dead on the third day; a bold claim to be sure – but once He was laid in the tomb, and three days later if He didn’t rise from the dead, and then three days turned to a week, then two weeks – and He still didn’t rise again, that claim would be proven false. Everything that He said, everything He did, would then become invalid. Without the hope of the resurrection, what hope would we then have?

It’s as the apostle Paul stated:

1 COR 15:17-22
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. 18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. 20 But now is Christ risen from the dead and become the first fruits of them that slept. 21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Such high stakes in establishing a ‘new religion’ would not warrant such a gamble which, by the laws of probabilities, could not possibly happen, even if someone were to make such a rash prediction. Yet Christ did rise from the dead, on the third day, just as He promised!

We now turn to the final chapter of The GOSPEL of MATTHEW: The MESSIAH and HIS KINGDOM MESSAGE! And as we know, it has a happy, no – far more: a blessed ending, to say the least!
