"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 . . .

A TTUF LOOK at REPENTANCE – WHAT IS IT and IS IT NECESSARY?


~ by James Fire

In this day and age, sound doctrine is not being tolerated by the professing/apostate church in startlingly increasing degrees (2 TIM 4:3); likewise, there are legitimate and necessary contentions for “the faith” in our stand for the truth that must happen (JUDE 1:3). Additionally, left and right there are disputes between Dispensationalists and Covenant Theologians (TTUF will be doing an article or possibly a three-part series on Dispensationalism in the near future); between Calvinists and Armenians, between Baptismal Regenerationists and strict Blood atonement salvationists, Baptists (Cessationists) and Pentecostals (Non-Cessationists) and so on and so forth.

Then we have this issue of repentance – some say that a soul cannot be saved until they repent, while others say the Gospel doesn’t contain the pre-requisite of repentance. What is the truth of the matter?

While I hold no pretentions that I will solve this debate for everyone, I will share my views on what I believe the Scriptures teach, in the hopes that those who are uncertain and need instruction will find this article useful and encourage them in their own study of this doctrine.

GOD’S WAY OR THE HARD WAY? GENESIS 16:1-16 – by Sonny Islas

Listen to the audio presentation of this teaching (and others as well!) here.

In Genesis 16 we’ll find that we can either do things God’s Way or we can do things our way (which then leads to learning the hard way). God made a promise to Abram (which automatically includes his wife Sarai because they are one; Matt 19:5) that He would bless them with a child (aka the Son of Promise). But because Sarai was unable to bear children, she devised an evil plan that painfully flopped. Sadly, Sarai and Abram had to learn the hard way because impatience and desire took the place of God’s way and timing.

The TTUF STUDY on The REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST – Chapter SEVEN


~ by James Fire

Introduction: From Chuck Missler’s study in REVELATION we have these insights:
Chapter 6 concludes with the statement, “For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” This next chapter seems to respond to that question.
In each of the major series of “sevens”—the seals, trumpets, and bowls—we notice that there always appears to be an inserted parenthetical passage between the 6th and 7th of each series. Having completed 6 of the 7 seals, Chapter 7 pauses for some amplification before we continue with the 7th seal in Chapter 8. Israel is the centerpiece in the Old Testament; and it now re-emerges as the centerpiece of God’s climax in Revelation. (It is also the centerpiece in the New Testament, but there is a lot of misunderstanding just how.)

It is interesting how Israel, again, is at the center of world events today. Chapter 7 deals with the “sealing” of the 144,000 Jews, 12,000 from each of the 12 tribes.

Basically then, this chapter and others that insert these parenthetical events between the 6th and 7th seals, trumpets and bowls are a kind of dramatic pause that focuses attention on some things that the Holy Spirit deems worthy of His time to reveal, and for us to study.
So, let’s find out what we may, by the Spirit of GOD Who inspired the Scriptures, may we be granted understanding by the same Spirit.

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter FIFTEEN


Contributing commentaries by Sonny Islas and James Fire


GENESIS 15:1-6 Faith Conquering Fear  and
GENESIS 15:7-21 The Furnace and the Lamp  – both by Ray Stedman

Chapter Fifteen – by James Fire - here is the video teaching recorded at ETERNAL LIVING WORD Church.

In this chapter the LORD appears to Abram; this is the second time that He does so, the first time in Chapter 12:7, but that was about 12 years ago.

The LORD always appears when He is most needed, not necessarily in a vision, but His presence that gives us peace when we are afraid and need comfort, or through the revelation of His Word to grant us guidance when we are confused and need direction. Scripture states that He is a very present help in time of trouble (PS. 46:1).

Here the LORD’s Word comes to Abram and He declares Who He is and what He intends for this man, the father of the faith, whose example we follow as we walk by faith and not by sight (2 COR 5:7). And the LORD God declares the same to us, His children.  We know Who He is; our Abba Father, our LORD Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit our Comforter – and we know He has blessed and awesome plans for us (EPH 2:10; JER 29:11).

GOD brings a glorious revelation to Abram here, and we recognize the binding oath of a covenant which is known as the Abrahamic covenant, the central focus of this chapter.
There are seven covenants in the Bible that the LORD makes with the people of this world, four of which are made explicitly with Israel alone (Abrahamic covenant, Palestinian – or Land Covenant, Mosaic and Davidic covenant); the other three (Adamic, Noahic and the New Covenant) are made with all humanity and not limited to Israel.

The JUDGMENT SEAT Of CHRIST – PART 3 of 3


By Lambert Dolphin

Bema Now
I woke with a start Sunday morning about 5 AM with a verse of Scripture in my mind,
“...we are all like an unclean thing,
And all our righteousnesses (tsĕdaqah) are like filthy
(menstrual) rags;
We all fade as a leaf,
And our iniquities
, (‘avon) like the wind,
Have taken us away
.”

It’s from Isaiah 64 I found out after consulting Blue Letter Bible. I did not at first realize that the closing chapters of Isaiah were addressed to Israel. I thought about the Judgment Seat of Christ which all followers of Jesus Christ will experience when they die or at the Rapture of the true Church.

When any follower of Jesus (who knows Jesus personally) dies (or “died”) he or she leaves earth’s constrained 4D space-time domain and time travels (I believe) to a great event in the heavenly places called the Bema (the Judgment Seat of Christ).

Chapter Fourteen – by Sonny Islas

GENESIS 14MELCHIZEDEK BLESSES ABRAM                                                      
LORD give us the ability to really follow the story line in Genesis and to understand the role every main character play and how all that is written points to Jesus and His great story of salvation. Also, help us to apply all the practical principles that we run into. Amen.  

Genesis 14 is made up of two main events: 
1. Lot (Abram’s nephew) is kidnapped and is rescued by Abram. 
2. A very interesting individual named Melchizedek steps on the scene for the first time. He is a type of Christ (we’ll cover more of him in a moment)
The chapter begins a war and multiple raids: A powerful king named Chedor-laomer and his royal buddies (3 other kings) who are just, conquering, plundering and sweeping cities until he messed with the wrong guy – Abram and his God!

The JUDGMENT SEAT Of CHRIST – PART 2 of 3


~ By Lambert Dolphin

Before we press on in Part Two of this series, let’s recap just a little bit of what we read in Part One:

“. . .other civilizations have been brought down by attacks of barbarians from without, ours had the unique distinction of training its own destroyers at its own educational institutions and providing them with facilities for propagating their destructive ideology far and wide, all at the public expense. 

Thus, did Western man decide to abolish himself, creating his own boredom out of his own affluence, his own vulnerability out of his own strength, his own impotence out of his own erotomania, himself blowing the trumpet that brought the walls of his own city tumbling. And, having convinced himself that he was too numerous, labored with pill and scalpel and syringe to make himself fewer, until at last, having educated himself into imbecility and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction, he keeled over, a weary, battered old brontosaurus, and became extinct.

“Well, the world of the 1st century looked very similarly bleak, and there was no more reason for hope in the days of the apostles than there is in our own times. Yet when you turn to the pages of the New Testament you never see the reaction of despair. There is a cry of triumph and of hope running through all these pages, although their circumstances did not look any more hopeful than ours.

“Notice how Paul puts it as he introduces this passage to us here. Verse 6, "So we are always of good courage"; then again in Verse 8, "We are of good courage." That note has been sounded again and again throughout this passage. In Verse 1 of Chapter 4 he says, "Having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart"; and in Verse 16 of Chapter 4 he says, "So we do not lose heart."

Now let’s continue with the second part of this series. . .

The TTUF STUDY on The REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST – Chapter SIX: Part Two



~ By James Fire

We will now pick up where we left off in Part One of Chapter Six. Thus far we covered the first two seals on this scroll that the Son took from the Father, this title deed of the Earth and its inhabitants which was purchased by the very blood of the LAMB of GOD (REV 5:9).

The rider on the white horse we saw as GOD’s judgment on a Christ-rejecting world by giving them what they want (JOHN 5:43): the one world leader conquering (subduing, from the Greek verb nikao) the nations, by ‘arrow-less’ achievement. A bit of interesting legend about Nimrod's arrow in a little bit . . . 

The rider on the red horse is a judgment from GOD in the way of war – and as we observed before, it’s not until man ceases in his war against His Maker – rejecting both Him and His Righteous Rule and obtains peace with GOD (ROM 5:1-2), that there will be peace on Earth (LUKE 2:14), but not until then!

So now we move on to the other two of these four horsemen (Incidentally, we see a similar vision of four horses, but here with chariots, given to Zechariah in ZECH 6; like in REVELATION, these are sent to the earth from the presence of the LORD, and it specifies that these are “spirits” that are sent with a mission from GOD, and He will even use evil spirits to accomplish His purposes (1 KINGS 22:21), just as He used Satan himself in regards to Job; JOB 1:6-12; 2:1-6):

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter THIRTEEN

Contributing commentaries by Sonny Islas and James Fire

Chapter Thirteen – by James Fire

Commentary on GENESIS by Ray Stedman - For the video teaching of this chapter, click here.

GENESIS 13:1-2
And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south. 2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

Egypt has long been a type of the world in Scripture – and here we have Abram leaving Egypt; an Old Testament example of sanctification from the sinful influences of this fallen world. Moses, more than four centuries after this point will declare to Pharaoh when admonished by the King of Egypt to stay, and when refused, he asked Moses to keep the animals in Egypt; it was then that he said: “we shall not so much as leave a hoof in Egypt!” (EXOD 10:26).

Abram was a very wealthy man and this would seem to go contrary to who GOD usually calls to His kingdom (GOD must really love poor people – He sure made a LOT of them!):

JAMES 2:5 
Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

The JUDGMENT SEAT Of CHRIST – PART 1 of 3


By Lambert Dolphin

The Bema is mentioned in two contexts in Acts and in the Epistles. One use of the word bema was to describe the reviewing stand where competing athletes in a race were evaluated and rewarded by a panel of judges:

Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.” (1 Corinthians 9:24-27)

The second use of “bema” in the New Testament is in connection with Roman rule over conquered peoples. The Roman overlords interfered as little as possible in domestic affairs, considering themselves morally superior to the pagans under them. They appointed governors with on-site jurisdiction, and in major cities they erected outdoor law courts where a visiting Procurator could visit periodically to mediate and enforce Rome’s absolutes. Several interesting situations confirming the civic center bema are recorded in the New Testament. The most notable example is in Acts 18.

Contributing commentaries by Sonny Islas and James Fire

Chapter Twelve – by Sonny Islas


GENESIS 12:1-3
Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed

GENESIS 1:1
Now the Lord had said to Abram: "Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you"
.

  • It seems as though God called Abram when he was in Haran but ACTS 7:2 says,

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter ELEVEN


Contributing commentaries by Sonny Islas and James Fire

Chapter Eleven – by James Fire

Commentary on GENESIS by Ray Stedman 

To watch the video of this teaching, taught at ETERNAL LIVING WORD Church, go here.


GENESIS 11:1-32 
Here we have the account of the Tower of Babel, the scattering of the unified people of the Earth, the division of languages, and the immediate ancestors of Abram and Sarai, that we come to know as Abraham and Sarah.

GENESIS 11:1-2
1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there
.

The entire population of the Earth at this time spoke the same language, shared the same vocabulary and written words. The power of a unified means of communication, along with the life-span of people, spanning hundreds of years (imagine how much knowledge and experience you could gather if you lived for 500 years or so!), is not to be underestimated.
We think of mankind in his early days as being primitive, but it was not at all the case. 

Mankind was created with profound intelligence – Adam possessed enough intelligence and creativity that he could name every creature on God’s Earth. Cain had enough ingenuity that he built, not a village or a town, but an entire city!

The people came to Shinar, later known as the region of Mesopotamia, and today the area covering mostly the country of Iraq.

GENESIS 11:3-4
3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth

The TTUF STUDY on The REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST – Chapter SIX: Part One

~ By James Fire


Before we venture into Chapter 6 and forward, we do well to remember the perspective of this book, and the meaning behind it. The Revelation of Jesus Christ entails everything about Him as the Second Person of the Trinity, the LORD JESUS: OUR KINSMAN REDEEMER, the LAMB of GOD as well as OUR AVENGER of BLOOD, The LION of JUDAH as well as the Judge of the whole Earth

For two thousand years, beginning with His earthly ministry that lasted in all likelihood about 3 years, testifying to the nation of Israel His people, and shortly after His resurrection, to be heralded to the Gentile nations by the apostles, as the Messiah of Israel, and LORD and Savior of all, people have heard the witness of the Risen Christ and His Gospel.
Yet He was (initially and up until this present time) rejected by His own nation (JOHN 1:11), and while the church grew with astounding rapidity among the Gentiles, the preponderance of the peoples of the Earth likewise rejected Him.

In each generation it is accounted as the greatest of tragedies, that people in the vast majority reject salvation in Christ; this supreme offering of grace by the Father, in sacrificing His own beloved and only begotten Son – His Holy and Righteous name being trodden down as an unclean thing:

HEBREWS 10:29
Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

THE CONSPIRACY: Educational Abduction

by A.M. Kisly


"Yesterday’s conspiracy theories often become today’s incontrovertible facts." Not sure where this quote originated, but how true!

The misuse of the term "conspiracy" has become a tool for those who want the truth hidden from those being conspired against.  The clear effect of terms such as "conspiracy theory" is meant to silence people who suspect a conspiracy may be happening.  The misuse of the term is nothing more than a smokescreen that serves the interests of the guilty and powerful.

In 1993 a book was published called, "An Educational Abduction" by Brannon Howse.  The book was about Outcome-Based Education, Goals 2000, America 2000, and Educational Indoctrination.  The book uncovers an agenda and strategy to undermine the role of parents raising their own children, as Brannon rightly calls it, "An Educational Abduction," which I will get to in a minute.

As the world's elite powers unite to bring about a New World Order, government leaders, and educational elites continue to push legislation that literally seeks to change America from a free individual nation and erase our Judeo-Christian values.  In order to achieve their goals the state educators continue to implement programs that are more about global attitudes, values and New Age religion, rather than  academic achievement or cognitive knowledge. We've already seen this happen in the past several decades, and will continue to see even more outrageous legislation being passed in order to indoctrinate children to accept a new global standard, the one that the Antichrist will one day rule.

While this article exposes new legislation, which is old legislation revived, it is also an exhortation to a true commitment to Christ, and what we need to be doing as the days become more evil, and the coming of Christ draws ever closer.

The FUNDAMENTALS of the FAITH

 ~ By James Fire

To watch the video of this teaching, go here to see it as recorded at ETERNAL LIVING WORD Church, Tucson,AZ on 5/19/2019.

What does ‘fundamental’ mean?
“Being an essential part of something, or a foundation for the purpose of building on; something essential, of central importance.”

So, the fundamentals of Christian doctrine are the foundation stones upon which all other doctrines of the Bible are built upon.”

What then does doctrine mean? Simply, it means ‘teaching’. Specifically what GOD teaches us in His Word.
The fundamentals of the faith therefore are the core doctrines, the very heart of doctrinal truth that is recorded for us by GOD in the Holy Bible. From these foundational fundamentals all of the truth of GOD’s WORD is built upon and derives.

What are the foundational doctrines then that are the fundamentals of the faith?
Before we get into these, let’s consider this: if there is anyone who claims to be a Christian, but denies any one of these primary fundamentals, they are denying ‘the faith’ – that is, they are contradicting the truth of GOD’s Word that is necessary for salvation and spiritual life. It is doubtful that such a one is truly born again.

PLUNGING INTO APOSTASY - UPDATE on PLUNGING TOWARDS APOSTASY


~ By James Fire

About nine years ago Anne Kisly, one of the writers for TTUF wrote the article Plunging Towards Apostasy and given the situation we see in this world, and how much worse things have gotten (in less than a decade!), I thought an update would be essential.

It is the saint’s duty to expose the “unfruitful works of darkness” (EPH 5:11) in warning both the church and the world of the impending judgment that will come upon these works. Such evil will only increase as the approach of the LORD Christ Jesus draws near (MATT 24:12) – and so while these things in and of themselves can be burdensome and grievous to see, it is also a token for hope, because it means the signs of the Last Days are coming to a close and the Messiah’s Reign of Righteousness will soon be inaugurated!
In the meantime, it behooves us workers of the kingdom to continue working in our respective callings from GOD while it is still light, for the night is soon coming when no one will be able to work (JOHN 9:4)!

Christian Persecution: Perilous Times Ahead

Bobservations Column
by Pastor Bob Lawrenz

Several of the Apostles write in their Epistles about hardships that lay ahead for Jesus’ Church.  They have spoken about tribulations, perilous times, and even being hated for our faith in Jesus Christ.

OPEN DOORS USA reports 1 in 12 Christians face threats and persecution in their homelands.  VOICE OF THE MARTYRS claims it’s 1 in 9, with numbers reaching as high as 245 million Christians world wide who face danger every day, just because of Jesus Christ!  OPEN DOORS USA compiled a list of the top ten worst counties where Christian persecution prevails:

1. North Korea, 2. Afghanistan, 3. Somalia, 4. Libya, 5. Pakistan, 6. Sudan, 7. Eritrea, 8. Yemen, 9. Iran, 10. India

. . . and they monitor 40 more nations.  These “Top Ten” countries are not even among the African nations of Radical Islam, where more than 100 Christians have been burned alive, executed, or killed in their own homes or churches just this month by radical Islamic sect, Boko Haram.  OPEN DOORS USA is a watch-dog ministry, and PERSECUTION.ORG is sponsored by The Moody Bible Institute.

Both outreach organizations included prayer requests for Christians in Myanmar, where we support Pastor Roger Oakland (Founder of Understand the Times, International, and Bryce Homes International). Christians there are kept impoverished by being turned away from gainful employment opportunities, and they are relegated to living in the poverty stricken region of southern Myanmar. An email from Pastor Roger this past week informs us of a Mission Trip he embarks upon this coming Wednesday, reaching out into the jungle areas of the country.

While we see an increase in negative attitudes in the USA against Christians, many brothers and sisters in far away places face danger walking out of their front doors.  Radical Islam is the cause of a lot of it, but also Militant Hinduism and Fundamentalist Buddhism also plays an important role in Christian persecution.

Pray for our missionaries around the world.  Pray for Christian believers everywhere.

"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”  -- Hebrews 10:25

PORTRAIT OF AN APOSTATE




by A.M. Kisly

The second to the last book in the bible is the book of Jude.  Jude was a “brother of James”, and the half brother of Jesus. (See Jude 1:1; Gal 1:19 Matthew 13:55, Mark 6:3).  

During the time of Jude, pagan philosophies had so infiltrated the church that the Holy Spirit constrained Jude to urge Christians to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once [for all] delivered unto the saints” (Jude vs.3).  

How familiar this sounds even today. Our heads are spinning from all the winds of doctrine that have crept into the church by false teachers promoting a false gospel.  Friend, if there were more than one way to salvation, Jesus would not have had to die on the cross for our sins. There is only one way of salvation and that is through Jesus who is the way, the truth and the life!  “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

The main purpose of the book of Jude is exhort believers to earnestly contend for the faith,  to warn us of false teachers/apostates who have crept into the church unawares, and compel us to go win some souls for Christ, some with compassion, and others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire (vs 23).  

We are living in the last days.  There are many who scoff when they hear this, even in the Church, which is even more disturbing.  Yet scripture tells in 2 Timothy 3:1-7 a little something about this. “This know also, that in the last days perilous times hall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”  You’d have to be blind not to recognize the overwhelming abundance of this in the culture today.
And so Saints, in these last days we are to equip ourselves with truth, pray for discernment, know the scriptures, and take heed to the warnings.  Love the Lord with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength, because your enemy is out there, lurking in the dark, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).  Paul exhorts us in Ephesians 6, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” in whatever shape they take form.

MARCHING ORDERS AGAINST MOLECH

GENESIS 9:6 
Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man.

NOTE: A video of this article is posted at the bottom of this page if you would rather watch than read, but please review this page for its many other videos and web links that lead to various pro-life ministries!

On 9-11 nearly three thousand people were killed, almost 2600 of these in the towers, at the World Trade Center, by as few as 19 terrorists. It was a horrific event that left our nation numb with grief, as the world looked on with shock and despair. It was a terrible day that will live on in infamy – a day of evil that was plotted and planned in the minds of a few, that left devastation and ruin in New York City in 2001.

Those 19 souls are accountable for the deaths of their victims, unless they repent.
