GOD'S ONLY GOSPEL
- ONLY ONE GOD, ONLY ONE JESUS, ONLY ONE GOSPEL -
"...addicted...to the ministry of the saints.…For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the Body of Christ."
(1 Cor. 16:15; Eph. 4:12)
“…we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved…”
Grace and peace to all who love the Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity and in truth, and who believe and rejoice in His name according to the Scriptures. We trust you are well, and that you continue to believe, judge by, and have great joy in, God’s one and only Gospel which alone contains His Testimony that must be believed in, of the Person and Work of His dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The following is an excerpt from my book ‘For God So Loved…WHO?’:
A cursory reading of the Scriptures often leaves a person with only a superficial understanding of what God is saying, and not the proper one. To then go off and assume that which one believes the Scriptures are saying is what they are really saying, is sheer folly. Those who refuse to study and ‘dig deeper’ into a verse or doctrine, betray an attitude of prejudice, and even fear. He who does not properly reason from the Scriptures, reveals a bias against that which he fears will prove what he believes to be wrong. He who will not reason from the Scriptures is a slave to that which he holds to, or rather holds him, which he is not willing to have examined and therefore not permit it to be challenged, even by the Light of God’s Word. He has pre-judged something based on inadequate, insufficient, or false information. He is comfortable with it, and, therefore, refuses to allow himself to view ALL the evidence. Their yearn to learn, if they ever had one, has become dulled, leaving them with the stubborn attitude of staying with what they know come what may. Such a person reveals an unteachable spirit, and an unwillingness to stand corrected and see God’s Truth. They reveal a fear of the truth, and that innate fear that pervades every man’s soul: CHANGE! Such a person is enslaved to the traditions of men and religious institutions of the world, and, in some cases, willfully ignorant of what God’s Word is really saying. Such a person has become comfortably numb, and is living in a religious comfort zone. All he has is a vain religion, a useless gospel, the god of which cannot save him. "To act without clear understanding; to form habits without investigation; to follow a path all one’s life without knowing where it really leads, SUCH IS THE BEHAVIOR OF THE MULTITUDE." Conversely, the true believer is to "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY dividing the Word of Truth" (2 Tim. 2:15). ■

Christians are of “…the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh” (Phil. 3:3).
Salvation by grace just says it all! Salvation by grace shows that it is not at all by what a man does, but by all that God has done. Salvation by grace through faith does not require a man’s works.
“…God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all” (1 Jn. 1:5). As there is no darkness in God, so too, there is no darkness in God’s Gospel. No error, or lies, or any untruths reside in the Gospel of God, and, therefore, in the true believer’s heart concerning what the Gospel is. What then makes anyone who believes in a false gospel, a gospel which contains even some error, lies and untruths concerning Who God is, what God has done and for whom He has done it, think that they are in any way believing God’s Gospel.
“Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another…Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law” (Rom. 14:19 & Rom. 13:10).
A man can only be saved by the grace of God, and through this sole means he believes with the faith of God given so that he will believe only the Gospel of God from the inception of his Christian life. One can only trust in Christ AFTER one has heard the Gospel, understood the Gospel and believed the Gospel. All one has prior to this is a false gospel, another Christ and a fake Christianity. “That we should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ. In Whom ye also trusted, AFTER that ye heard the Word of truth, the Gospel of your salvation: in Whom also AFTER ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise” (Eph. 1:12,13). In light of this, how can anyone be a true Christian BEFORE they trust in the true Christ? BEFORE they believe in His Word of truth: the Gospel? BEFORE they are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise? Be not deceived, no one was ever a Christian BEFORE they believed the only Gospel by which God saves His people from their sins. To believe is to trust, and to trust in God’s only Way of salvation is a work of God upon the heart of His chosen.
The Son of God is denied by the things which lost people believe…and do not believe about Him. “Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [but] he that acknowlegeth the Son hath the Father also” (1 Jn. 2:23).

The following is an excerpt from my book ‘For God So Loved…WHO?’:
The Sovereign God has no less than total control in all things. It is the simplest thing in the world to see that God is completely Sovereign in all things including the salvation of His people because no one has any chance without Him. Anyone who would argue this fact simply does not know the true God, and is a mind-numbed supporter of Satan’s lie: “…ye shall not surely die” (Gen. 3:4). There is no salvation which can be initiated by a creature who is spiritually dead, who is without hope, and does not even know the Saviour. Not know of the Saviour, but know the Saviour: Who He is, what He has done, and for whom He has done it. To be without hope is to be rendered completely without any ability or capability, any will, or way, to steer oneself toward salvation, to do anything to gain salvation, to even recognise, desire, or seek the true God. This is taught in John 6:44, Jesus said: “No man CAN come unto Me, EXCEPT THE FATHER which hath sent Me DRAW HIM...” If God does not draw a man then none can come to Him. This is what salvation is conditioned on. God drawing a man to His Son. And how does God draw that one? BY HIS LOVE! (see Jer. 31:3). Without God’s love none can be drawn to Him, none can come to Him, for the hopeless man has no will, or way, or desire to seek the true God. All these things come after, and because of God’s antecedent love. It is God’s love which makes the difference, for without it no one would love Him. No one would, or could be, drawn to the true God without God loving the person first. If God loves everyone why has not everyone been drawn to Him? How can love be expressed by not doing anything for the one who is the object of that love? Any who would attempt to bring ‘free will’ into the conversation will notice that there is no free will of hopeless man’s in sight in any of these verses. They all speak about God’s love, God’s loving His people first, no one being able to come to God without His love for them, and none being able to come to the Saviour without God having given them to Him. God’s love coming first shows that the notion of a man loving God first, a man doing anything to attract God to him is a religious myth predicated on the Satanic lie that man is not spiritually dead, and is energized only in, and by, the profoundly imperceptive minds of ignorant, lost men.
“To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices” (2 Cor. 2:10,11). Make certain there is no unforgiveness in your heart, brethren. No bitterness or spirit of vengefulness in your thoughts toward anyone for anything they have ever said or done to you, or those you know. Love and forgiveness should flow freely from the believer as it does to the believer. “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good” (Rom. 12:19-21).

The following is an excerpt from my book ‘That’s Just Your Opinion!’:
Paul the apostle immersed himself in, "the defense and confirmation of the Gospel..." and was, "...set for the defense of the Gospel" (Philippians 1:7,17 cf. 1 Corinthians 1:6). Does any of this sound like the Gospel is something which is unknowable, that it is some indeterminate thing which cannot be grasped, let alone defended and established. The Gospel of God is God's Message of Salvation made up of the doctrines which deal with God's grace in the salvation of His people. The Gospel of God is not something which requires the opinions and interpretations of man to define its doctrines, for God has already done that. Just like the headline on a newspaper's front page is not written so as to invite your subjective opinion of what it is saying for its declaration is self-evident. The Gospel of God, too, has not been left to the guesswork, the opinions, of mere men for this would directly contradict the clarity with which Scripture speaks concerning the saved as being in the Light, knowing God and abiding in His doctrines by the acknowledgement of His Truth.

As always, I look forward to hearing from you all, and pray that the gracious and loving Father, Who alone is Holy and Just, will continue to bless all His elect through His Mercy and Truth, and that you will continue to be edified and instructed by items available through this ministry. For God’s enemies, only one thing awaits: “Clouds and darkness are round about Him: righteousness and judgement are the habitation of His Throne. A fire goeth before Him, and burneth up His enemies round about” (Psa. 97:2,3). Our prayer to God for ourselves and for all His people is: “Order my steps in Thy Word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me” (Psa. 119:133). “Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee: and let such as love Thy salvation say continually, Let God be MAGNIFIED” (Psa. 70:4). Thank you again for your prayers and support. “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the Word of His Grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified” (Acts 20:32).

“Now unto the King Eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen” (1 Tim. 1:17). "Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing" (1 Peter 3:8,9).
