"For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion ..."
« Reply #17 on: December 14, 2021, 01:17:32 pm »
2 Thessalonians Chapter 2 verse 9-17 New International Version

The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.

For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.


Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Ps. 97:11

Agelbert NOTE: I take full responsibility for the emojies and bunny gifs, along with the bold and colored font below. Pastor Mike Winger DID NOT do any of that. I did all that because I am convinced (for several decades now) that Kenneth Copeland is, and has been from the beginning of his "ministry", one of these:

A Serious Study of the Best 💰😇 "Name-It-and-Claim-It" 😈 Verse Ever: The Mark Series pt 43 (11:22-25)


Mike Winger 361K subscribers

This, right here, is probably the most powerful "name-it-and-claim-it" verse in the Bible.

Mark 11:23–24 (NASB95)
“Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.

“Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.

Honestly, I really struggled in prep for this study. At first I found myself wanting to just make sure that this passage wasn't used for the kind of stuff 😈 Kenneth Copeland teaches.

But I sensed that, in my desire to avoid a particular interpretation, I might be blinding myself to what the passage is saying. So, I took a different approach, one that I try to always take but one that was particularly difficult for me to do this time around. I took myself out of the debate over "name-it-and-claim-it" teaching in the 21st century and instead sought to thoroughly understand how this radical passage makes sense in the context of Mark and the rest of the New Testament. The result has been a really rewarding study on the power of prayer and the reality of faith in the midst of suffering. This passage doesn't fit "name-it-and-claim-it" and it doesn't fit cessationism either. My hope is that I can bring clarity with this study and stir up faith. Faith 🕊️ for miracles and faith 🕊️ for suffering.

It's Sad That We Still Fall For This: The Mark Series pt 51 (12:38-44)

Fakery, false spirituality and money-grubbing is a multi-million dollar industry. But it's not new. Jesus warned us about these issues in the first century and they just keep coming up again and again. But I don't think we would be wise to limit this warning to an issue that we see in some leaders. We should take seriously the fact that humans seem to have a natural drift from authentic spirituality to impersonated spirituality. From genuine character and godliness to laboring at the appearance of character and godliness. This is something that leaders will probably be tempted with the most but any one of us can fall into. God give us wisdom!

This is part 51 of the Mark Series, going verse by verse through the Gospel of Mark. Today we are in chapter 12:38-44

Did God Create Evil? A Misunderstood Bible Verse: Isaiah 45:7

Examining the idea that God created evil and looking at Isaiah 45:7 where God says, in the KJV, "I create evil".

We'll examine the passage in context, looking at the Hebrew word for "evil" and then tackle some common problems/misconceptions people have on the topic of the existence of evil.

Here's a wonderfully helpful video on the problem of evil from Inspiring Philosophy:

In this segment of Psalm 50, God sends a clear message to relatives (you know who you are) who continue to act wickedly while sanctimoneously claiming to be Christians. You may fool yourselves and your offspring, but God is not mocked. Repent while there is still time.   

Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and perform your vows to the Most High, and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”

But to the wicked God says: “What right have you to recite my statutes or take my covenant on your lips? For you hate discipline, and you cast my words behind you.

If you see a thief, you are pleased with him, and you keep company with adulterers. “You give your mouth free rein for evil, and your tongue frames deceit.

You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother's son. These things you have done, and I have been silent; you thought that I was one like yourself.

But now I rebuke you and lay the charge before you. “Mark this, then, you who forget God, lest I tear you apart, and there be none to deliver!

The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God!” -- Psalm 50:14-23 ESV

“If I knew any way of escape I would crawl through sewers to find it,” Lewis writes. “I am not arguing that pain is not painful. Pain hurts. That is what the word means. I am only trying to show that the old Christian doctrine of being made “perfect through suffering” is not incredible. To prove it palatable is beyond my design.” -- The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis

Agelbert NOTE: This is an amazing and uplifting true story. As a former pilot myself, the logical and methodical way this man preceived his surroundings is quite familar to me. I am firmly convinced he is telling the truth about this life changing experience. The details are precise. The countryside in Heaven is FAR more REAL than this pale imitation of reality we now inhabit. I've never been to Heaven, but a near death experience took me to what I believe are the outskirts before I was pulled back. However, I did notice the fact that there was a blue sky with no sun, as Jim Woodford relates from his experience. I was floating over a road with grass along the sides. Then my direction of travel reversed and it all disapeared and I was again laying on a gurney in a hospital (I was severely injured from crashing my 1989 Ford Probe GT Turbo). That said, my experience was nothing compared to this man's. Don't miss this video, your salvation and/or that of someone you love may depend on the knowledge you acquire from it.

When Jim Woodford, he spent 11 hours in Heaven. When he came back, he was changed forever.

A successful airline pilot and businessman, Jim had it all—a loving family, substantial wealth, and all of the good things that come with it. But none of this was enough to satisfy the emptiness he felt in his heart. He always hungered for something more. And then he died.

Jim was never a religious man. When it came to matters of God and faith, he was ambivalent. But as he lay in the hospital bed, clinically dead for more than 11 hours, his consciousness was transported to the wonders of Heaven and the horrors of hell. When he returned to this world, he brought back the missing peace his soul had been longing for.

Join Jim Woodford on this unforgettable journey into the afterlife!

Martin Luther: A Return to Grace | Full Movie | Padraic Delaney | Gerharde Bode

The great drama of Martin Luther’s life comes alive in this vivid portrayal of the penniless monk’s quest for truth—a quest that would re-shape the church, and the world.

Martin Luther triggered a seismic upheaval that rocked the western world in the 1500s—with an impact that continues to reverberate to this day. The great drama of Martin Luther’s life comes alive in this vivid portrayal of the penniless monk’s quest for truth—a quest that would re-shape the church, and the world. Perhaps the most faithful movie about Luther’s life ever made, the film does not shy away from the deep theological questions—and answers—that mark Luther as one of the most influential people of the last thousand years.

Director: David Batty
Starring: Padraic Delaney, Gerharde Bode, Jr., Bruno Grzeszykowski

Agelbert NOTE: These quotes from the book Vicars of Christ - The Dark side of The Papacy by Peter De Rosa, help explain some details not mentioned in the film about the Inquisition during Martin Luther's time:

It is noteworthy that one of the few prelates big enough to stand up to Innocent III was Stephen Langton, an Englishman versed in the common law. In splendid defiance of papal absolutism, he wrote:

‘Natural law is binding on princes and bishops alike; there is no escape from it. It is beyond the reach of the Pope himself.’ Such was the intimidation by the Inquisition that no theologian, except ‘heretics’ like Marsilio of Padua and Martin Luther, raised his voice against it. Had anyone spoken out he would have been immediately silenced. Had he written against it, he would have been censored in advance. Tyranny continued unopposed. Not a single bishop in all those centuries raised his voice in protest at the way his flock was being ravaged, further proof that bishops in those days were puppets of the Holy See.

Yet Protestants like Balthasar Hubmaier had clearer heads and braver hearts. Hubmaier wrote a whole tract against the burning of heretics in 1524. In a haunting series of propositions, he wrote:
 
The inquisitors are the greatest heretics of all, since, against the doctrine and example of Christ, they condemn heretics to the fire. ... ...

The curious thing is that Luther had no intention of leaving the church. Until it dawned on him that a divided Christendom was better than one over which the pope rules in denial of the Gospel. Better by far to be ruled by the open Bible than by a corrupt and apparently irreformable papacy.

Western Christians still debate the wisdom of Luther’s judgement. His analysis did not differ from Dante’s. What was wrong with the church was the papacy’s libido dominandi, its insatiable lust for power.

Leo X was obtuse enough to excommunicate Luther even for saying ‘Burning heretics is against the will of the Holy Spirit’. The next few popes were no more perceptive.

Newton's Grace: The True Story of Amazing Grace | Full Movie | Landon Wall | Jim McKeny


816,227 views May 1, 2020

Vision Video 682K subscribers

John Newton was a troubled young man with a violent temper and a penchant for vulgarity that literally made his fellow sailors blush. Whipped for desertion and sold into slavery, it seemed his life would end early in a West African grave...until he was rescued by a ship captain sent by his father.

Following a powerful conversion experience during a storm at sea, Newton would eventually become a pastor in the Church of England and the writer of several of the church's most beloved hymns, including "Amazing Grace."

But before that, Newton, the former slave, was appointed captain of a slave ship himself. In an age when human bondage was considered the norm, it would take time for Newton's conscience to be thoroughly transformed. But Newton came to hate the slave trade, becoming a spiritual leader in the fight to end slavery.

Newton's Grace is the true story of a real "Prodigal Son," the story of miraculous forgiveness and change that lies behind the powerful words of one of the world's most beloved hymns.

Director: John Jackman
Starring: Landon Wall, Jim McKeny, John Jackman, Erik Nelson, Amber Dawn Fox, Susan L. Jones

Amazing grace, How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I am found, Was blind, but now I see. ✨  'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved. How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed. ✨  Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come, 'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far And grace will lead me home. ✨ The Lord has promised good to me His word my hope secures; He will my shield and portion be, As long as life endures. ✨  Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail, And mortal life shall cease I shall possess within the veil, A life of joy and peace. ✨  When we've been there ten thousand years Bright shining as the sun, We've no less days to sing God's praise Than when we've first begun. 🕊️

John Wycliffe is a dramatic biography of the life of the 14th century scholar and cleric who translated the Bible into English for the first time.

Wycliffe found himself in the middle of religious, political and social conflicts.  An Oxford scholar, one of Europe's most renowned philosophers, John Wycliffe was a defender of English nationalism against the power of the pope and a champion of the poor against the injustices of the rich. 

John Wycliffe taught that God's forgiveness cannot be bought with indulgences. 

John Wycliffe preached that the only true authority is the Word of God, and the Word could only be understood by all if the people could read it in their native tongue. "John Wycliffe" captures the trials and heroic struggles of this significant man of faith - the "Morning Star" of the Reformation.

Director: Tony Tew
Writer: Douglas McIntosh
