15 “If you love Me, you will keep my commandments;” (John 14:15 translated from the NA28 Greek text)

In this post we will look at John 14:15-31, which is last part of the dialogue between our Lord and His disciples in the upper room after the Passover Feast just prior to His arrest in the garden on the other side of the Kidron Valley from Jerusalem (John 18). Never forget my brethren, our Lord did not come to bring all people together. His message was one of division. That was what He said. Also, His ministry was to reveal the Father (John 1:14, 18), to bring glory to Him. In this post we will see that our Lord even further defines who it is who are truly His.

Unconditional Election

Because man is dead in sin, he is incapable to initiate a saving response to God. In light of this, God, from eternity past, mercifully elected a particular people unto salvation (Ephesians 1:4–6). These people are comprised of men and women from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation (Revelation 5:9). Election and predestination are unconditional; they are not contingent on man’s response to God’s grace (Romans 8:29–30; Ephesians 1:11–12) because man, in his fallen state, is both unable and unwilling to respond favorably to Christ’s offer of salvation.

Limited Atonement

The purpose of Christ’s atoning death was not to merely make men savable and thus leaving the salvation of humanity contingent on man’s response to God’s grace. Rather, the purpose of the atonement was to secure the redemption of a particular people (Ephesians 1:4–6; John 17:9). All whom God has…

New Apostolic Reformation leader’s unstable foundation

Originally posted on My Word Like Fire:

For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:13)

 

Since C. Peter Wagner essentially founded the NAR, and has mentored Cindy Jacobs and many others, it is important to briefly examine his own theology—which is, frankly, a train wreck.

Wagner is willing to work with “apostles” who don’t believe in the Trinitarian God. Wagner has acknowledged there are some NAR leaders who are Oneness Pentecostals. [1]

Thus, when Wagner writes about a “lighter doctrinal load in the Second Apostolic Age” [2] this apparently extends to cooperating with those who hold to the heretical Oneness understanding.

Wagner himself aligns with open theism, the blasphemous belief that God does not necessarily have foreknowledge of all things. [3]

New Apostolic Reformation figures such as Mike Bickle of IHOP-KC, Bill Johnson of Bethel Redding, Chuck Pierce, Cindy Jacobs, James Goll, Mark Chironna and others have…

VIDEOS AND ARTICLES: Speaking Things into Existence is Unbiblical

Obedience is the Foundation of True Worship

Originally posted on A Ruby In The Rough:

Esteban March - El becerro de oro

“If we desire, therefore, that he should approve of the honor which we confer upon him, we ought always to consider what he requires. And, indeed, they who venture to offer to God honors invented by themselves are chargeable with using some sort of force and violence towards him; for obedience is the foundation of true worship. Let us also learn from it with what reverence we ought to abide by the pure and simple word of God; for as soon as we turn aside in the smallest degree, the truth is poisoned by our leaven, so that it is no longer like itself.”

~John Calvin, Commentary on John 6:15

The Cult of Self

Originally posted on Zwinglius Redivivus:

If you want to know what the chief religion in America is today it is simply the Cult of Self.  This woman is a perfect example of it:

Three years ago, I had an abortion at Planned Parenthood. It was obtained legally, supported by those closest to me, and I have never regretted it for a second since, circumstances that unfortunately don’t apply to every woman who elects to terminate a pregnancy.

She goes on to say

I had an abortion because I had recreational sex, got unintentionally pregnant, and wasn’t ready or willing to be a mother. This is something I haven’t written about before, but there comes a point when staying silent begins to look like shame — and I am not ashamed.

She may not be ashamed now.  But she will rue the day she joined the Cult of Self soon enough.

But sadder than her…
