Unbelief in Believers

Once the disciples of Jesus failed to cast a demon out of a boy. I wonder what we would have concluded about it. Jesus told his disciples plainly that the reason for their failure to cast the demon out of the epileptic boy was their unbelief, due to their lack of prayer and fasting. (Matthew 17:20)

Today many Christians are offended at any teaching which implies that they may have unbelief. But Jesus was constantly rebuking his disciples for their unbelief, and “little faith”.

If you can get free of unbelief, you will be of all Christians, most fruitful, and most pleasing to the Lord.

Two Versions of the Gospel

In the evangelical/pentecostal churches there are actually two different versions of gospel being presented by people who would claim they take the Word of God as their authority in faith and practice. I want to draw your attention to the fundamental issue in question here, because it has to do with your ETERNAL SALVATION.

Commitment to Preach

I go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Mk 16.15

I am very careful, then, how I live. I live not as unwise, but as wise. I decide to make the most of every evangelistic opportunity, because the days are evil.
Eph 5.15

I go into all the world and make disciples of all the peoples, baptising them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and I teach them to obey the commandments of Jesus Christ. Mt 28.18 – 28.20

I am as bold as a lion.

Prayers to Abide in Christ

Lord Jesus, you have commanded us and given us grace to love one another as you loved us. As we do this, we will abide in You, and You in us. Otherwise we cannot bear fruit. Apart from you we can do nothing. You have made a way for us. You have poured out your love in our hearts by the Holy Spirit, and we can remain in your love. We thank You that through You we will bear much fruit. (Romans 5:5; John 15:4,5)

Lord, we pray for all those not abiding in You. We pray that they will repent, and not be thrown away as worthless branches. We pray that those in the church will never dry up.

Confessions about Hearing God

I see to it that I do not refuse Him who speaks. Heb 12.25

I hear the voice of Jesus my shepherd. He calls me by name and leads me out. Jn 10.3

I follow Jesus for I know His voice. Jn 10.4

I will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for I do not know the voice of strangers. I will not listen to evil spirits. I will not obey evil spirits. I will not submit to evil spirits. Jn 10.5

I am of God and I hear God’s words. Jn 8.47

I am able to understand Christ’s speech because I am able to listen to His Word.

Thanksgiving for God’s Sanctifying Work in my life

I thank You Father that You sanctify me completely so that my whole spirit, soul and body is preserved blameless at the coming of my Lord Jesus Christ. You call me, you are faithful, and you also will do it.
(1 Thessalonians 5:23,24)

Isaiah 48:17

Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way you should go.” Isaiah 48:17

Confession:
The LORD my Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel is talking to me.
The LORD is my God.
The LORD God teaches me to profit.
The LORD God leads me in the way I should go.

Prayer:
Thank you Lord that you are speaking with me.
Thank you that you are not just God, you are MY God.
Thank you Lord that you teach me to profit.
I believe that you are a good teacher.

Sin and Salvation – Section II

The Disciple,—Master, in these days some learned men and their followers regard Thy atonement and the redemption by blood as meaningless and futile, and say that Christ was only a great teacher and example for our spiritual life, and that salvation and eternal happiness depend on our own efforts and good deeds.

The Master,—1. Never forget that spiritual and religious ideas are connected less with the head than with the heart, which is the temple of God, and when the heart is filled with the presence of God the head also is enlightened.

Are you a good person?

Are You a Good Person? If good people go to heaven when they die, how good do you have to be to be good enough to go to heaven?
