God sees Christians as having been perfected if they are being sanctified!

Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.

This Scripture refers to a great mystery. It relates to what Jesus Christ of Nazareth achieved by dying on the cross. This is the “one offering” spoken of here.

The Scriptures give many “past tense” declarations concerning things which until now have not been manifested. We don’t see Christians behaving pefectly, walking with God perfectly. And yet, there is a sense in which we are acceptable to God as if we were perfect AS LONG AS WE ARE BEING SANCTIFIED.

These are the last days, and we are living in the spiritually perilous times predicted by the apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 3:1-5. People are lover of self, money and pleasure yet hold a form of Christianity, thinking that having this form is enough.

It is significant because these are the amongst the last recorded words of the apostle Paul. In the next and last chapter of 2 Timothy, Paul writes:

The Meaning of the Cross

“For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” (1 Corinthians 2:2)

“But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world” (Galatians 6:14)

“Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.” (Romans 6:4)

Losing our Lives for the Gospel

When he had called the people to Himself, with his disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”

“For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.” (Mark 8:34,35)

We can see here plainly enough that the recommendations of Jesus Christ fly in the face of everything that our natural instincts tell us.

The Meaning of the Tree of Life

"And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life
was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." (Genesis 2:9).

The Punishment of the Wicked

WE BELIEVE in the everlasting punishment of the wicked (in the sense of eternal torment) who wilfully reject and despise the love of God manifested in the great sacrifice of His only Son upon the cross for their salvation – Matt 25:46; 13:49,50; Luke 12:47,48; 2 Thess 1:8,9; Rom 6:23; Rev 20:11-15.

We Believe in Creation, not Evolution

We believe that the heavens and earth and all original life forms, including man, were made by the specific immediate creative acts of God as described in the account of origins presented in Genesis, and that all biological changes which have occurred since creation are limited to variation within each species.

1. God created the Heavens and the Earth – Gen 1:1.

John1:3 “All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.”

Create = To make without use of pre-existing material the whole visible and invisible universe.

Steps in Being a Disciple of Jesus

This page is designed for Christians. It needs to be recognised that
we all need to grow in every one of the basic areas of Christian life.
The most important thing to the Lord is our heart attitude. Because the
Lord works on each of us individually, we need to follow His leading on
all things. Hopefully this page can be a tool in His hands though for some.

If you lack power in your Christian life, it could be due to a lack
of knowledge, or to a lack of obedience.

On Speculating on End-time Events

Back in 1986 I developed some interest in end-time events. What I have noticed over the years is that we can always construct an interesting theory that suggests that Jesus is coming back next year, or Real Soon Now. Six day theories, pre-trib rapture theories are modified from year to year by self-appointed “prophets” and others who find the whole thing so fascinating.

I have read _highly plausible_ and interesting theories interpreting Daniel, Revelation and other Scriptures – the only trouble is they contradict each other in many points.

Eternal Security – Dare we believe it?

Back in 1997 I spoke with a pastor and the subject of the eternal security
of the believer came up. This pastor is a lovely, gracious man and is doing
many things to reach people in the community with the gospel. He obviously
loves the Lord and loves people. When I questioned him regarding the contents
of one of the theological books he was reading, it came out that he believed
in the doctrine that a truly born again believer is eternally secure, no
matter what he may do from that time on.
