 GOD WILL SAVE ANYONE BUT NOT EVERYONE (Excerpt)

The Christian Post – Sep. 25, 2013 — There is a reason why Jesus is called “the Savior of the world,” and not merely “the mentor” or “the example.” Jesus Christ literally saves people from their sins. But not everyone. Only anyone.

Many don’t want to be “saved.” They don’t think they need “salvation.” It’s not that God doesn’t want to save them. It’s that they don’t want God in that way. Instead, they just want Him around in case they need to ask for something else.

Personal salvation is a free gift, but there are many who decide to turn away from this gift. They honestly don’t see the importance of this offer of grace. It’s like a person who has a deadly disease, but is unaware of his condition. He thinks everything is just fine. If he only knew.

Sin goes deep within man. It is a violation of God’s perfect standard. And it deserves punishment from a Holy God. All of that just seems to “fly over the heads” of those who “don’t feel too sinful.” They assume their feelings can be trusted, and that the Bible should be looked at with suspicion rather than with faith.

It would be like that man with a disease who is told about his terminal illness, but he doesn’t trust the diagnosis. Therefore, he continues to live life as though everything is OK. If he only knew.

God will save anyone, but not everyone. Many will spend eternity apart from God and His heavenly kingdom. And what a kingdom it will be! If man only knew what he is missing. By rejecting the love and mercy of Jesus, man says “no” to the only Person who can save his soul for eternity. Of course, those who say “no” to Jesus don’t think they are going to miss out on anything. If they did, they would likely accept Christ’s free gift. If they only knew.

Can anyone come to Christ and be saved? Yes indeed. Anyone can approach Christ in faith. Anyone that is who sees His need and sees the solution. It’s like this: Your soul is sick, as is mine. We are sinners. We cannot wash away our sin, but Jesus can. His blood can do it, and this occurs when a person trusts Christ to forgive Him. You bring Jesus your sin in sincerity and truth, and He cleanses your soul and makes you acceptable to the Father. Without Jesus, you are in no condition to approach the Father. You are unclean, and so am I. Only Jesus makes us clean before God.

God will save anyone, but not everyone. That’s just the way God designed His plan of salvation. And you get to design your approach to life, and to death. You can live and die with Jesus, or you can live and die without Him. You can trust Christ and follow Him, or you can ignore Him and say “no” to His offer of grace. God won’t force you to be in His family if you are determined to live life outside of it.

So the ball is in your court. God has done everything necessary for you to be offered this gracious gift of eternal life in heaven. Will you combine this Gospel message with faith, or instead, continue on in unbelief? The door is open. Salvation has been provided. While it may seem to you like “everyone” has heard this message before, here’s the real question for you today: Is “anyone” listening?

IDF SOLDIERS WARNED AGAINST CONTACT WITH MESSIANIC JEWS

Weekend News Today – Dec. 16, 2013 — citizens of Israel woke up this week to a special early morning announcement by the Israeli Army on news broadcasts all across the country: The Ministry of Defense has ordered that all soldiers staying in Jerusalem over the Sabbath are not allowed to have any contact with members of the sect of Jews who preach faith in Yeshua (Jesus).

Is faith in Yeshua such a threat to our national security that one of the most effective military organizations in the world feels the need to “protect” its soldiers from this “sect of Jews”?

It all started when a small group of Messianic Jews visited a hostel for lone soldiers in Jerusalem over the Sabbath. The army provides the hostel for soldiers who have no family in Israel. On the weekends, when they are off base, they can stay at “Beit Hachayal,” or Soldiers’ House. A group of Messianic Israelis were visiting soldiers at this particular Beit Hachayal on the Sabbath and talking about their New Testament faith.

Many soldiers enjoyed these visits, and some began reading the New Testament and other Messianic literature regularly. Soldiers were invited to visit with Messianics in their homes, where they were introduced to Messianic faith during Sabbath meals and Bible teachings.

The Jewish believers had built up many friendships with management and staff of the hostel, who appreciated the positive impact the visits had on the lone soldiers. One of the soldiers even came to faith in the Yeshua. No one at the hostel, or in the IDF, were bothered one bit by this, not until an “anti-missionary” organization stirred up trouble.

The so-called “anti-missionaries” became aware that a soldier had come to faith in Yeshua most likely from reading one of the many Messianic or Christian newsletters and websites they follow. So they reported to the Ministry of Defense and IDF authorities that “the cult of Jews who preach Christianity are running missionary activities at Beit Hachayal.”

The ultra-Orthodox authorities to which the anti-missionaries are attached carry a lot of political weight and can cause a lot of problems. So, without investigating the facts on the ground, the Ministry of Defense and IDF immediately put out the public warning against association with Messianic.

Messianic Jews also received a letter from the Ministry of Defense forbidding them from entering “Beit Hachayal without explicit permission including a description of intended activities.”

Years ago, Messianic Jews were considered something of a security risk by the IDF. Many were not allowed to serve in elite or sensitive units. Today, however, Messianics are highly regarded by military authorities, and are even sought out to serve as commanders and officers in every branch of the Israeli military, including Military Intelligence, which requires the highest security clearance.

One Messianic Jewish Sabra (native-Israeli born), a sergeant in the Israel Air Force, recently asked his commander if he could include the New Testament together with the Hebrew Bible in his pledge of allegiance to the State of Israel. “Yes you may,” returned the officer without blinking an eye. And so this young man joined the growing numbers of hundreds of openly Messianic Jewish soldiers proudly serving in the IDF.

So why is the Ministry of Defense now publicly opposing Messianic activity in Jerusalem? According to one combat soldier, who is not Messianic, it all has to do with politics. “The government passed a law recently to recruit religious (ultra-Orthodox) Jews, but most refuse to serve,” he explained. “The army is trying to appease the Orthodox community in Jerusalem by making this absurd announcement against Messianic faith. We are all here to serve our country and the army should not be involved in telling people which path of faith to follow.”

WHY IS ISLAM GROWING IN THE WEST?

Christian Headline News – Nov. 6, 2013 — The global Muslim population will grow by 35 percent over the next 20 years, from 1.6 billion to 2.2 billion by 2030.  “Why are Westerners drawn to Islam?”  “What is the contrast between salvation by grace vs. works in Islam? And what is a true comparison between Islam and the Bible?” How should Christians respond?

Let’s take the second question first. “Islam” is typically translated “submission,” in this case to the will and laws of Allah (the Arabic word for “God”). These laws are often summarized as the “five pillars of Islam.”

First is the “witness” (shahadah), declaring that “there is no God but God and Muhammad is his prophet.” Second are the prayers (salat), five times a day facing Mecca. Third is hajj, the holy pilgrimage to Mecca, the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad. Fourth is fasting (sawm) during Ramadan, the month when the first revelation of the Qur’an was given to Muhammad in AD 610. Fifth is alms-giving (zakat), at least 2.5 percent of one’s goods to the poor.

Here’s the point: no Muslim can know if he or she has kept these laws well enough to be granted a place in paradise. By contrast, the Bible teaches: “by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9). In religion, we try to climb up to God. In Christianity, God climbs down to us.

Why would a works-based religion be popular in Western culture today? Actually, the vast majority of “new” Muslims in Europe and America are immigrants or children of Muslims. Only 20,000 Americans convert to Islam each year, a number smaller than one of several megachurches in the Dallas area. Since the Muslim birthrate in Europe is three times higher than non-Muslims, it’s easy to see why Islam is growing on the Continent. But its works-righteousness is not the primary reason why.

What about Islam and the Bible? Muslims are taught that God revealed himself in the Old and New Testaments, but Jews and then Christians corrupted his revelation; so he revealed himself a final time in the Qur’an, which is his “pure” revelation to mankind. Actually, textual scholars are convinced that the Old and New Testaments we have today are almost identically the same as the original manuscripts. However, not long after Muhammad’s death, so many different versions of the Qur’an existed that Caliph Uthman ordered all but one version destroyed. As a result, no Muslim can really know if the Qur’an he or she reads today is consistent with the original.

Let’s close with my favorite story regarding the grace of Christianity. An elderly professor of world religions surprised his colleagues by declaring his commitment to Christ. He explained: “It was as if I had fallen into a deep, abandoned well. Muhammad came by and told me it was the will of Allah that I be in this well, then he left. The Buddha came by and told me if I would cease desire I would cease to suffer in the well, then he left. A Hindu teacher came by and told me if I was faithful in the well I would escape through reincarnation, then he left. Confucius came by and told me if I’d not tripped I would not be in the well, then he left. Jesus came by, saw me, and got into the well with me. That is why I am a Christian.”

GROWING UP WITHOUT A FATHER TRANSFORMS CHILDREN’S BRAINS

Christian Headline News – Dec. 12, 2013 — A new study shows that growing up without a father not only affects behavior – it transforms children’s brain structure.

That’s the verdict reached by the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Center and recently published in the journal Cerebral Cortex.

Researchers studied the behavior and brains of Californian mice who, like humans, are monogamous and raise their children as a unit.

Mice separated from their fathers showed greater aggression, anti-social behavior, and “abnormal social interactions” than those raised with both parents.

“The behavioral deficits we observed are consistent with human studies of children raised without a father,” said Dr. Gabriella Gobbi, the report’s lead author.

However, more groundbreaking was their finding that the behavior was not the only thing affected by the lack of a father. Mice raised by one parent had a misshapen prefrontal cortex, the portion of the brain associated with behavior, decision-making, and problem solving.

“This is the first time research findings have shown that paternal deprivation during development affects the neurobiology of the offspring,” Gobbi said.

The report states, “Our results emphasize the importance of the father during critical neurodevelopmental periods, and that father absence induces impairments in social behavior that persist to adulthood.”

The absence of a father has been associated with a string of poor behavior and life outcomes, including higher rates of substance abuse and criminality.

A report published by the Center for Social Justice found that half of all children in Britain are living in a single-parent home, more than 1 million British children in all.

By contrast, the presence of fathers – even uncommunicative ones – raises the levels of positive outcomes for children.

In 2011, researchers at the University of Melbourne found that delinquent behavior was reduced by 7.6 percent among boys who lived with their biological fathers, and five percent points for those living with non-biological fathers only, especially violent and gang-related crime.

U.S. PLAN GIVES JERUSALEM HOLY SITES TO VATICAN (Excerpt)

International mandate to control sections of Israel’s capital

WND – Dec. 16, 2013 — Secretary of State John Kerry quietly presented a U.S. plan for eastern Jerusalem that calls for an international administrative mandate to control holy sites in the area, according to informed Palestinian and Israeli diplomatic sources.

The exact composition of the international mandate is up for discussion, the sources said, but Kerry’s plan recommended a coalition that includes the Vatican, together with a group of Muslim countries such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

The international arrangement is being proposed as a temporary solution for about two to three years while security arrangements in Jerusalem between Israelis and Palestinians are finalized, said the sources.

Israel, the sources said, was not receptive to the particulars of Kerry’s plan, especially the concept of Turkish participation in Jerusalem.

A POTPOURRI OF BLESSINGS

Hebrews 6:7  “For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God….”

Creation Moments – Nov. 15, 2013 — Many people like to have a nice perfume around the house. They brew a potpourri of mint, citronella, lavender and similar fragrant plants to make home smell more like home. But humans aren’t the only creatures that appreciate a nice smell around their house.

During field studies, scientists have found that a small bird called the Corsican Blue Tit also likes to have a pleasant-smelling nest. This was an unexpected discovery, made quite accidentally when one researcher discovered various sprigs of aromatic plants in dozens of nests. When she starts to lay her eggs, the female bird will begin keeping her nest stocked with fresh, fragrant herbs until all the eggs hatch. The birds prefer yarrow, citronella, mint and lavender. When researchers secretly removed these herbs from the nests that they were observing, the parent birds were quick to replace the fragrant sprigs with others.  It also turns out that these herbs also have disinfectant and anti-pest characteristics. They inhibit bacteria and fungi and act as mosquito repellents. Rather than simply beautifying their nests or adding a nice perfume, the birds are also protecting their offspring from diseases and pests. You might wonder, Who taught them to do this?

As the Bible says, herbs are a blessing from God. They are not just a blessing to man, but also to many of God’s creatures.

HOW GOD SEES THE UNBELIEVER

Ephesians 2:1-5

God’s Word is always true but not always popular. When it runs counter to cultural preferences, the message of the gospel can be uncomfortable to hear and may lead to challenge and confrontation. We need to know biblical truth, including the fact that God sees unbelievers as . . .

• Dead in their trespasses and sins (Eph. 2:1). As newborn babies, we are physically alive but spiritually dead. Spiritual death came to all generations through the first Adam (Rom. 5:12); spiritual life comes only through Jesus, the “last Adam” (1 Cor. 15:45).

• Unable to grasp spiritual things (1 Cor. 2:14). Those who are spiritually dead can’t perceive the things of God. Divine truth can’t penetrate because their “receiver,” or spirit, is dead within them.

• Not part of God’s family (John 1:12). Spiritually, there are only two families in the world: God’s and Satan’s (John 8:44). A person is born into God’s family—or “born again”—by trusting in Christ’s sacrifice and receiving Him as Savior.

• Under wrath (Eph. 2:3). Unbelievers, even kind and loving ones, are under judgment. A sin debt is owed (Rom. 6:23), and it can’t be paid by kind or loving acts of service. Jesus paid on our behalf, and only by trusting in His substitutionary sacrifice can we escape God’s wrath.

Unbelievers are in grave danger, but most do not realize it. The good news is that God’s offer of salvation through Jesus Christ is still available. Have you reached out for the hand of your Rescuer? If your answer is yes, are you pointing others to the One who wants to rescue them?

• Mini-/micro-sensors and -robots, including biological/artificial hybrids: They could 
be pre-deployed covertly in an opponent’s territory to strike at an appointed time or 
on command, or to guide other weapons. If such devices are produced at low cost in 
large numbers, diffusion to other countries and to criminals is probable, creating the 
possibility of their use in asymmetric warfare or terrorist attacks. 
• Body manipulation including implants: …Soldiers might voluntarily, or maybe under some 
pressure, accept risky or ethically questionable technologies that modify body chemistry, 
rewire brain, nerve and muscle, or otherwise radically alter the human organism. This could 
create “facts” and circumvent barriers in civilian society, preempting a thorough debate 
on benefits, risks, ethical aspects and needs for regulation.”
