Text: “When I cry unto Thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I KNOW; for God is for me. In God will I praise His Word: in the Lord will I praise His Word. In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.”
“And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.”
2 Chronicles 20:22.
Good morning, reassured Christian! Your tears, because of the unbelief and
gross error being propagated and preached from professing Christian church
pulpits across the nations, have caused you much grief, much frustration; at
the fact that many professing Christ just will not, or perhaps cannot, believe
in the Sovereignty of a truly gracious and Holy Lord God.
However, the Lord has not left thee and me
without His comfort and full assurance – His Word is truth! Hallelujah!
We are called to preach/teach God’s truth! The result of our Bible preaching/teaching is
completely in the omnipotent hands of our Sovereign Lord God. All praise and glory to His merciful and
gracious Name! Thank you, Lord God!
“In God will I praise His Word: in the
Lord will I praise His Word. In God have
I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.” (Psalm 56:10)
Spiritually regenerate, Christianity is what is under profound Satanic attack
today in the year 2022.
It is a time today, when many want to go to
Heaven on their own terms; want to meet together on Sundays in large groups, to
worship – in their own way – a false god of this progressive age!
Among such, often very large groups of
people, there is no place for Bible-belief; no room for, or understanding of, Bible doctrine; and certainly no room at the inn of their hearts for living
lives of Biblical obedience, holiness and self-denial.
The Second Epistle of Paul the Apostle to
Timothy has, in the full inspiration of the Lord God Jehovah, clearly
prophesied the characteristics of this time of unbiblical ‘belief’; this time
of open and popular apostasy; this time of going through the motions of
Christianity, while wallowing in humanistic unbelief and disobedience to God’s
“This know also, that in the last days
perilous times shall come. For men shall
be lovers of their own selves (selfish), covetous, boasters, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural
affection (homosexual), trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent (no
self-control), fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady,
high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God: having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such
turn away.” (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
It never ceases to amaze me, how many of
these professing Christians, can tell me all about the best workings of mobile
phones; how to access the internet services; and the latest ‘praise and
worship’ band – yet know almost NOTHING about the Bible, sound Christian
doctrine; and Biblical standards of how they should be living their lives under
a Holy Lord God of absolute wrath against all sin! Seems like easy-believism 101 for dummies!
Is it any wonder that sincere, born again,
genuine Christian believers cry out in despair to God – having so many
anti-Christians and charlatans exercising clerical power WITHIN the realms of
what was first established as Christian places of Christian worship? Lord God, please hear our cries?
“When I cry unto Thee, then shall mine
enemies turn back: this I know for God is for me.” (Psalm 56:9)
“Moreover whom He did predestinate, them
He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified (just as if I’d
never sinned!): and whom He justified, them He also glorified (yet future
event). What shall we then say to these
things? If God be for us, who can be
against us?” (Romans 8:30-31)
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of
God, they are the sons/daughters of God.”
How do we know the false professor from
the genuine Christian believer?
Easy! The genuine Christian is
led by the Spirit of God. How does God
the Spirit lead the genuine Christian believer?
Easy! The Spirit of God is the
Divine Author of Bible Scripture, and has led the genuine Christian believer to
the Word of God to receive necessary faith to believe, receive, and to follow
the risen Christ Jesus. Without such
God-given faith in Christ, there can be no genuine Salvation; and no authentic
profession of the Christ of God. Take
God’s written Word out of any professing Christian church – and you will find
such a church building packed to the doors with counterfeit ‘Christians’; being
led by blind guides into a Christ-rejecter’s Hell. Tragic, tragically sad – but true
True saving FAITH
is the gift of God, and God only gives His gift of faith to ‘His people’. God’s genuine people, have the Bible, God’s
Word at the centre of all things.
From personal and present experience: it
is a dangerous thing to try to preach/teach the undiluted Word of God from a
King James Version Bible in this age of open apostasy. One suddenly becomes the ‘bad guy’, the
‘trouble-maker’; the ‘rock the boat radical’ – when one dares to take a stand
and proclaim the profound simplicity of Bible truth. Fact.
Verse 11. “In
God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. The Lord Jesus
prophesied such days of open apostasy in Matthew’s Gospel, Chapter 24.
“All these are the beginning of
sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up
to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for
My sake. And then shall many be
offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall
deceive many. And because iniquity shall
abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
But he/she that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be
saved.” (Matthew 24:8-13)
With all this doom and gloom, what should
genuine Christian believers do amidst such happenings? Psalm 56:10-13 reveals the Biblical answer to
such events of despair.
Verse 12. “Thy vows are upon me, O God. Because God’s vows are upon us, we know we
can trust our Sovereign Lord God to fulfil His Word and His promises to us,
‘His people’. Therefore, we sing praises
in the midst of all oppositions and counterfeit ‘churchianity’ – knowing that
the Lord God Whom we know and love and serve is in full control.
Thought: The high
praise of God, is a two-edged sword in the Bible-believing mouths of ‘His
people’. Let me hear it, brethren? Hallelujah! Our God reigns! (Psalm 149:6-9)
