The reaction of the child of God, or his or her response, to adversity, and the trials of mortal life must be one of patience, submission, humility, prayer, love, hope, and faith.
The Holy Spirit is the blessed Spirit, a member of the GODHEAD, who takes up residence in Christian hearts in consequence of their being sons of God (Galatians 4:6), and in fulfillment of the apostolic promise of such an indwelling to all believers who will repent and be baptized for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38f), and is thus identifiable as the “Holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13).
Fundamental truth of the most basic nature is openly denied or presumptuously ignored by an age that seems to feel that it has outgrown such elementary things as these; and, therefore, we may be thankful indeed for the inspired outline of things which actually constitute fundamental Christian doctrine.
I found this on one of my journeys to the great state of Florida.
He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
Finally! Someone has written a book that is long overdo for the over indulgent parents of this country. Across the Earth, far too many people in every society have been mentally conditioned, their environments prepped, and attitudes altered for our “modern” world.
This is the doctrine of Retribution, and God is the moral Governor of the world.
God so “loved the world” that he gave His only begotten Son (John 3:16), but “world” here has a different meaning. It is an inclusive term for all those who are in the kingdom of darkness and have not been born of God.
The example of a rejected stone becoming the chief stone was founded on historical fact.
Throughout the Bible, creation is declared to be an act of God and Christ, or God through Christ; and this Biblical explanation of how the universe came into existence is the only reasonable and intelligent explanation ever given.
It has been proved again and again by Christians that:
PROSPERITY is the blessing of the Old Testament.
ADVERSITY is the blessing of the New.
This psalm is both historical and prophetic. It refers to things that happened in Israel; and it is a prophecy concerning the New Testament Church.
Darkness is used here as antithetical to light, and very similarly to the writings of John; these passages refer not to literal darkness and light, but to the state of rebellion against God (darkness) and to the state of obedience (light).
These six graces:
properly united in the hearts of people, and thus conjoined will regenerate the human race!
There are two intercessors for the Christian: (1) Christ at the right hand of the Majesty on High. (Hebrews 7:25) (2) The Holy Spirit within the Christian himself.
The total corruption of the antediluvian world had been achieved by the evil one when the “imagination of men’s hearts” had become evil, and only evil, without intermission (Genesis 6:5).
The indwelling God in Christian hearts is greater than any particular advocate of Satan’s teaching.
The New Testament reveals a number of other ways in which people may sin against the Holy Spirit.
There are actually seven Calvary miracles, the greatest and most wonderful, of course, being the resurrection of Christ. The rending of the veil, occurring simultaneously with the death of Christ, must be associated with that death; and, looking more closely, it is plain that the veil, in practically all of its functions and even in its colors, was a most instructive type of Christ.
