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, ‘That’s Just Your Opinion’:
The details of what you believe is the incontrovertible evidence which shows who you believe in whether it is the True God or a false god, a god of one's imagination or the God of the Gospel. However, the undeniable sincerity and devoutness displayed by the majority of people, in addition to a casual belief in a Scripture 'God knows my heart. My intentions are sincere and therefore what I believe must be good. I go about doing good and I believe in God. I love God, so I must be a Christian.' Many are taught that what we believe does not actually affect our salvation for all will be rectified when we get to Heaven. One false preacher even declaring, "A lot of you will have to go to school when you get to Heaven". Conversely, Scripture says that the elect of God are all TAUGHT OF GOD HERE ON EARTH! The Lord Jesus states clearly "...And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto Me" (John 6:45). Belief of the Gospel of God must take place during one's life for after life is the Judgement. The 'school bell' does not sound upon our deaths it is ringing right now! God has appointed teachers and preachers etc., to preach and teach His Gospel now and gives the gift of Faith to His people so they will know and believe His Gospel during their lifetime (see 1 Corinthians 12:28; Ephesians 4:11). A person won't even get to Heaven unless the Father has taught them here on earth. In order to get to Heaven one must come unto the Lord here on earth by the hearing of the teaching of the Gospel of God. Once a man dies it is time for the Judgement not his enrolment in some fictional Heavenly Bible school' (Hebrews 9:27). ■

EVERYTHING IS DEBATABLE TO THE IGNORANT
A man can never run short of forgiveness toward others, as long as the love of God is in his heart.
Bitterness comes from putting oneself first, placing oneself above others.
“Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye” (Col. 3:12,13).
All that happens is the will of God, HOWEVER, simply because it happened is not God’s stamp of approval.
“Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Tim. 2:3).
“Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law”
“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God...Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men” (Psa. 9:17,20).
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin” (Heb. 12:1-4).
“Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified” (Psa. 40:16).

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth” (Heb. 12:2-6).
CONSIDER HIM, NOT YOURSELF - THINK ON HIM, DO NOT DWELL ON YOURSELF
Distract yourself from sin, do not provide a way for it.
“But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof” (Rom. 13:14). Make no provision for the flesh. Do not fuel your lusts. Do not take that first step. Do not be deceived. “Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world” (1 Pet. 5:7-9).
The following is from my book, ‘For God so Loved…WHO?’:
"Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our (those whom He loved—the beloved, see v.11) sins” (1 Jn. 4:10). God did not send His precious Son to those who loved Him, or whom He foresaw would love Him, but to those whom HE loved, whom He foreloved. The sending of the Saviour was because of God’s love toward His people for the purpose of their salvation. Interestingly, the original Greek word for sent in 1 John 4:10 is commissions. Christ was not merely sent out, but was “sent forth on a certain mission”, and His mission was to save the people whom His Father had chosen and entrusted to Him, from their sins (see Matt. 1:21). Just as the Saviour did not come from man, for He was virgin born (see Matt. 1:23), so too, the Lord Jesus does not save anyone based on what they have done. Everything to do with a saved man’s affections for God, including his faith, has come because God loved the man FIRST. Seeing that it is without question that God has made the first move, and that He is also responsible for every move thereafter, it stands to Biblical reason that salvation is solely by Him from the very beginning—from conception to completion—and that it is by His free will that one comes to God. The saved man is not saved because he believes, but believes because he is saved. If believing came first, then God’s love for a man could only be due to the man loving God first. No man can come to Me, Jesus said, except—making it explicitly clear that there is no other way—the Father draws him (see Jn. 6:44 cf. Psa. 65:4). This is an unreserved statement on the Lord’s part, and is an out and out denial of the existence of any free will in man which can lead him to the true God. It is God Who comes to a man. It is God Who seeks out and finds His sheep, and if it is by the free will of God that a man is saved, it can be certain that man will be saved for who can resist His will? It is God Who has made the choice, and not man. ■

The following is from my book, ‘Thou Shalt Surely Die’:
Many say, 'God hates the sin but loves the sinner'. This statement is nowhere to be found in the Scriptures. In fact, quite the opposite: "God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day" (Psa. 7:11; cf. 1 Pet. 3:12; Jn. 9:31; Prov. 15:29). All of mankind is, by nature, born children of Wrath (see Eph. 2:3). God's placing a distinction between the wicked and the chosen is further evidenced in Christ's not praying for the world, but exclusively for those which the Father loves and has entrusted to Him. "...that He should give eternal life to as many as Thou hast given Him....I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which Thou hast given Me; for they are Thine" (Jn. 17:9; cf. Isa. 53:8; Rom. 8:27; Heb. 7:25). Christ prays for God’s people. Christ died for God’s people. If ever there was a golden opportunity for the Lord to confirm the doctrine that man chooses God, this is it. However, Christ does not say that He should give eternal life to as many as have chosen Me, but rather to as many as the Father has given Him. This underscores the fact that it is God Who hath chosen His people, and not they which have chosen Him. Peter reminds us "...ye are a chosen generation..." (1 Pet. 2:9), and not a generation that chooses. God's children, chosen by Him, are all justified by what Christ has done in dying for them, for it is the essence of Christ's death that settles all argument over what He has done, and for whom He has done it. Christ's death justifies all those for whom He died (see Heb. 9:12,15; Rom. 5:9; 1 Thess. 5:9,10). They will all be saved from God's Wrath through Christ. Christ's death was a substitutionary sacrifice on the behalf of, not everyone, but the people whom God had given Him: "...for the transgressions of MY people was He stricken" (Isa. 53:8; cf. Isa. 53:11; see also Gen. 22:13; Isa. 53:4-6; Matt. 1:21; Jn. 17:9; Rom. 4:25; 2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Pet. 2:24). ■

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).
