Not with enticing words

Posted by appolus on October 16, 2019

And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.(1Co 2:4-5)

There is such a revelation in this Scripture that goes right along with everything that Paul was teaching not only the Corinthians but also the Galatians, every saint of that day, down through the ages and our day. If your faith stands because of the wisdom of men, and in this case it is the wisdom of enticing words from the pulpit, then your faith will not stand.

Only by the power of God can our faith be sustained, not by the persuasive words of men. One word from the mouth of God, even if it was from the mouth of a donkey, is better than ten thousand words from a very clever and persuasive man.

Many men can demonstrate wisdom, how many men can demonstrate the power of God? We applaud men for working for weeks on a sermon, but outside of the power of God and Him moving in our midst where does it leave us? Wiser and more educated? Perhaps. Changed in the very depths of our heart? Hopefully. This is the power of God. We cannot finish in the flesh what was begun in the Spirit.

Much of what we hear from pulpits today are enticing words of mans wisdom. Our faith in God cannot be sustained by this. If this is all that exists then slowly and surely the faith and the spiritual life of the sheep will spiral downwards leaving nothing but flesh and bone. The well fed sheep is he or she who grazes in the green pastures of the power of God and His word spoken, by that very power. It is this atmosphere that God alone is lifted up. In the power of the flesh and the wisdom of man, only man is elevated.

The heathens rage in their vanity

Posted by appolus on October 16, 2019

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.(Psa 2:1-3)

The world in which we live grows ever more angry against the Kingdom of God and His saints. As each day passes we see more and more that the heathen, the unbeliever and the people in general are aligned with the kings and rulers of this world against the anointed of God. The anger is rising in the hearts of men against the saints of God. Pretense is being cast away and kings and governments are showing their true colors, they are showing us who they really worship, the ruler of this world, the prince of the power of the air.

Yet the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords still sits upon His throne. His kingdom and His people shall carry the banner of light into the valley of darkness. Though the whole world rises up in a crescendo of darkness and evil, the saints, the bearers of the light shall stand firm upon Holy ground, they will not be moved. Those who serve the Lord with fear and who tremble in His manifest presence are soldiers in the Army of the Lord. We do not fight with the weapons of this world, our weapons are mighty for the pulling down of strong-holds.

Every saint who has ever walked Godly in Christ Jesus knows something of the heathen’s rage. You know brothers and sisters, you know. God has seen your suffering and is well pleased that you have stood strong against the exploits of the people in general around you, perhaps even those of your own household. Now consider our Lord and Savior Jesus, how in His day the rulers took counsel together to destroy Him. Kings and rulers, Pharisees and Sadducees, Herodians and the mob all came together against Him. The whole world turned on Him and yet He was true to His calling until He gave up His last breath.

Though the whole world come against you dear brothers and sisters, and it will, let us follow the ways of the Lord and stay true to our calling until we breathe our last breath. Whether we live or whether we die let us glorify the Lord. And whether we are still alive or have gone on before we shall all join our Lord in the sky in that great and terrible day of the Lord. The Kings and the rulers of this world and the raging heathens and all the vain peoples will bow their knees and acknowledge the Christ and receive His judgment.
