Church Growth?

Paul Proctor often has some interesting things to say regarding the Christian life. It is a documented fact that in the western world many christians are giving up on church in order to remain faithful to Christ . That may well go against your presuppositions. There is so much unbiblical (and anti biblical ) teaching in so many churches today that many of God's people get tired of trying to change things from within the system and have elected to "come out and be separate".Anyhow read Paul Proctor's take and see what you think.

This video was made by Lighthouse Trails. They post a lot of important info on deception in the church. Warren Smith is a former New Ager who knows his stuff in regards to New Age influence in the church. Watch and be informed.

One Truth

One truth, one way ,
One God made man from clay.
One Word divinely writ
One response required to it.
One Saviour, one Lord,
The price required we can't afford.
One act upon the cross,
Salvation offered to the lost.
One Name above all names,
One power the rebel tames.
One heaven offered to men,
One Hell deserveth them.
One hope , one Redeemer
For the lost and foolish dreamer.
One blood, once shed,
One response to raise the dead.
One faith once delivered;
Angels rejoiced, demons quivered.
One life one true Friend,
Kneel to Him before the end.
One church ,the born-again,
Many deceptions surrounding them.
One enemy already defeated,
One throne the Saviour seated.
Innumerable angels in one accord
Direct their worship to the one true Lord
And multitudes of sin-stained men
Rejoice that their washed and join with them.

The Great Apostasy

Here's a challenging word from David Wilkerson.Enjoy. (click on title)

Yahweh of Armies

In an age when men seek to redefine God to fit their personal desires , it's beneficial to remind our selves that the Living God has a Name. Some 7,000 times in the holy scriptures the name of Yahweh is used to refer to the God of the Bible. Many translations follow the tradition of the Jewish scribes and use LORD in capitals where Yahweh is in the original. The God Christians worship is not Allah or Buddha or Krishna ;His Name is Yahweh.

This Name is used in a compound form many thousands of times eg Yahweh our Provider , Yahweh our Healer ,Yahweh our Righteousness culminating in the Name Jesus or Yeshua ,Yahweh our Salvation .

The most repeated compound Name for God in the Old Testament is usually translated LORD of Hosts which actually means Yahweh of Armies.

Following is a poem to Yahweh of Armies...but just a word of caution. The Name of the Lord is not to be treated lightly.The self-existent, self-sufficient,omnipotent,covenant-making and keeping God commands us to treat His Name with utmost respect. Gentle Jesus meek and mild is actually the all-powerfull, all-conquering Yahweh of Armies!

God of Majesty , God of Might,

God of Truth and God of Light.

Expressed within Your Holy Name,

Always sufficient , always the same.

I Am , you said , and will always be

Prefect and complete for eternity.

Untouched by distance , time and space,

Infinite Holiness, infinite Grace.

You stoop to meet with finite men

To reveal what can be revealed to them.

You call to the fallen to seek Your face

And in the Messiah we see your Grace.

Judgement and mercy meet and kiss.

At the cross the promise of eternal bliss.

At Your Holy justice we tremble in awe

But at Calvary to mercy You've opened the Door.

Angelic beings before Your throne

Gaze upon glories to men unknown

And yet to the fallen sons of men,

"In My image created" You say of them.

Yahweh of Armies, our Warrior King

Creator and Owner of everything.

We like sheep have wandered astray,

You bought us back, no more to pay.

Of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob You're Lord.

Apostles and prophets in one accord,

Sing of Your Glory with reverence and awe,

Rejoice in Your Grace and delight in Your law.

If only our tongues could be loosed to express

Your wonders as under the blood we rest;

Sinners washed and judgement ceased,

Reconciled , restored, at peace.

Transcendent God beyond and above,

Infinite Holiness , infinite love,

Eternal Glory in human form

Raised the dead and stilled the storm,

Enlightened the blind and unstopped deaf ears'

Demons tremble as you still men's fears.

Rejected by many but the chosen still tell

Of the God of Heaven called Immanuel.

Yahweh you said Elohim,

Eyes to pure to look on sin,

But the blood is on the Mercy Seat

In the face of Jesus our God we meet.

OneWorld Church on Schedule

The prevailing view in our society is that all gods are the same .This interfaith mentality is rapidly taking hold in the church with such well-known christian spokesmen as Rick Warren and Brian McLaren jumping in boots and all. Many are calling this loving , tolerant and humble.God has another name for it .....APOSTASY! In the linked article there is some current info on this rebellion against God's clear commands.Should Christians, Muslims and Jews unite? Incidentally Brian McLaren is a speaker at Blackstump this year fresh from his celebration of Ramadan!
