Wrong teaching on "God's sovereignty" the worst doctrine in the church today. The way sovereignty” is taught today is a real faith killer. The belief that God controls everything that happens to us is one of the devil’s biggest inroads into our lives. If this belief is true, then our actions are irrelevant, and our efforts are meaningless. What will be will be.
If we believe that God wills everything, good or bad, to happen to us, it gives us some temporary relief from confusion and condemnation, but in the long-term, it slanders God, hinders our trust in God, and leads to passiveness.
Religion has resulted in the invention of a new meaning for the word “sovereign,” which basically means God controls everything. Nothing can happen but...
In reading the Bible it is not hard to see that God is concerned with growth and maturity of the believer, His sons and daughters. Even before we are born-again God brings things into our lives to form us as He wants us. Then when we are born-again, we are as children of God learning and growing toward sonship. (Gal.3:26-4:3)
Because we have been born-again our ability to know God, to know about God, has been created in us. (Col. 3:10) And as we abide in Christ and grow as a believer, we are being changed into the image of Christ by the Spirit. (2 Cor. 3:18) We are getting to know God and Christ and know about God and Christ.
If we are abiding with Christ and in fellowship with Him, then we are getting to know Him more and...
this cannot be allowed to happen for I am my brother's keeper and you are mine - most Christians are well and truly on the broad road - no doubt whatsoever - alas and sadly for most it seems there is no getting off or turning back since repentance, of error/s, is required and this must be done now and before the end of the road - this is especially difficult for those with weird and wacky ideas of being born again which is the very thing that is destructive - imho - twinc
I look at the words ""in Christ"" and think of them in reference to Noah and the flood.
Noah was told by God to build an Ark. It was built by human hands (Noah’s hands). The waters of God‘s wrath in the flood did not touch Noah and those with him. Noah, by his choice, obeyed God and went into the Ark he had built. --- The waters of the flood were the judgment of God on a sinful world full of sinful people. That does not mean that Noah was sinless. It means Noah believed what God told him.
Today there is another Ark. It is “”NOT”” built by human hands. It is built by the hands (will) of God. - Man can not go into the Ark that God has built by his own efforts (will). He must be placed in God’s Ark (Jesus) by God (the Holy Spirit). God...

Christ comes as a thief, in an hour and a day in which we think not. It is better to live the Christian life in daily expectancy that Christ may return for his church today!
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. - Matthew 24:36
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. - Matthew 24:42
But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.- Mark 13:32
And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. - Luke 12:39
Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast,...
This man is quite an enigma to me. His story is recorded in (Num. 22-25). His way is recorded in (2 Peter 2:15-16). His doctrine is recorded in (Rev. 2:14). His death is recorded in (Josh. 13:22) After reading all of these sections, what do you think? Was Balaam a false or true prophet? Myself, I am on the fence at this time.
who, where, how, why - who are the other sheep etc = God created all humankind as His sheep to hear and respond to His voice but something went terribly wrong so Jesus came to bring them together again - how He will do this is not fully understood or realised - so guess how ? they will hear again, recognise and respond to the Shepherd's voice and return to the fold - imho - twinc
