How to Become a Child of God - Pastor David

There are NOT many ways to become a Christian; there is just ONE way. A sinner may become a Christian in one day, in one hour, yea in a very few moments.

Super Bible Facts, pt. 10 of 10 - Pastor David

We can never understand the Bible until we learn from the Word of God and by the Spirit of God that the Dispensation of the Grace of God, the Dispensation of the Mystery, did NOT begin with Peter and Pentecost, but with Saul after his name was changed to Paul. The realization and application of this most important truth, will cause us to begin to understand the truth of Ephesians 4:13-14.

Child of God and the Law of Moses, pt. 3of3 - Pastor David

The Fruit of the Spirit, which is to be manifested by the Child of God who walks in the Spirit, is the very same love, joy, meekness, temperance, long-suffering, gentleness and goodness, DEMANDED in the Sermon on the Mount. Galatians 5:22-23.

Child of God and the Law of Moses, pt.2of3 - Pastor David

Righteousness is the requirement of God and the need of the sinner to have the approval of God. When the sinner receives righteousness as a gift from God, he likewise receives God into his life in the person of the Holy Spirit, and he can therefore fulfill the righteousness of the Law of God by walking in the Spirit. Romans 8:4.

Super Bible Facts, pt. 8 of 10 - Pastor David

There is a difference between the Grace of God IN a dispensation and The Dispensation OF the Grace of God. Ephesians 3:1-3. Surely we should know the difference between a sinner praying for mercy and seeking salvation....and the Ministry of Reconciliation in 2 Corinthians 5:18-21, in which the LORD and His Ambassadors are seeking the sinner and beseeching him to be reconciled to God.

Super Bible Facts, pt. 7 of 10

Moses, Samuel, David, Joel, Amos, and the rest of the prophets of Israel knew nothing, said nothing, and wrote nothing, concerning the Dispensation of Grace and the Dispensation of the Mystery which the RISEN Christ revealed, first, to the Apostle Paul. Ephesians 3:6-11, Colossians 1:24-27. Learn more, click the link

When we teach Hebrews 13:8, that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and for ever, we must empha­size that this refers particularly to His eternal Deity, BUT, that He changes as to His form and ministry. Click the link

Happy Thanksgiving from Lion and Lamb Ministry

Happy Thanksgiving Day everyone...Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with THANKSGIVING let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Super Bible Facts, pt. 5 of 10 - Pastor David

According to most authorities, Matthew was written before 40 A.D., before Cornelius was converted; whereas John was written about 95 A.D., nearly 20 years after the Apostle Paul died: AFTER the saints were thoroughly indoctrinated with the Pauline Grace message. Read More, click the link

Note this Bible fact in Matthew 15:24....I am not sent BUT unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Did you know that Jesus said this? And Matthew 10:5....These twelve Jesus sent forth and commanded them, saying, GO NOT INTO THE WAY OF THE GENTILES, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not.

Body of Christ, Bride of Christ, and Israel - Pastor David

The Bride of Christ and The Mystery, the Body of Christ, belong to different operations in the overall plan of God. Both are formed by Christ, and both are based on the redemptive work of Christ, but there are many differences, leading to the conclusion that they are in fact completely different.

Child of God and the Law of Moses, pt.1of3 - Pastor David

The Galatians DESIRED, as crazy as THAT sounds, to be under the Law. Galatians 4:21. There are multitudes just like them in the congregations today. The Apostle Paul said concerning those who preached the Law to the Children of God at Galatia...I would they were even cut off which trouble you. Galatians 5:12. He also said...Let him be accursed. Galatians 1:9.

Now, as stated in Super Bible Facts, part 1, I want to reiterate here, that you all become fully aware that the messages from the first chapter of Matthew to the last chapter of Revelation FIVE different groups or classes of people are addressed.Once again, here they are:1) To unsaved Israelites who were under the Law.2) To saved Israelites who were under the Law before they became members of the Body of Christ.3) To unsaved Gentiles who were aliens from the Commonwealth of Israel, and not under the Law.4) To carnal saints and babes who were members of the Body of Christ.5) To those who were of full age, called “the faithful in Christ Jesus.”For an in-depth explana…

Book of Revelation Series: The Churches - Pastor David

Revelation Series: Section 1: The Churches - Pastor David

The Revelation Series, Section 1: The Churches, is an examination of the churches or assemblies of Revelation 2 and Revelation 3 , and that in fact they are NOT the Body of Christ. But future assemblies of Jewish believers that will be HERE, on earth, after The Harpazo, after the Body of Christ has been caught up to meet The LORD in the air. The letters to these assemblies, when read carefully, differ immensely from the Pauline epistles. The Revelation Epistles are addressed to servants and speak of works and judgment, while the Pauline Epistles are addressed to SONS and Daughters and speak of our standing IN Christ, as His Body, by GRACE. And it was to the Apostle PAUL, not tp the 12 Apostles, that the Mystery was shown and explained.

Therefore, The Ecclesia, The Church of the Dispensation of Grace, is the BODY of Christ, and cannot be Israel, or the Wife, OR The Bride. For we are part of the BrideGROOM. We are IN Christ. This is the MYSTERY that was withheld, and hid IN God, from A…

Hebrews 10:14. “He that believeth on the Son is not condemned.” John 3:18.On the cross of Calvary our LORD Jesus Christ became the propitiation for the sins of the whole world, and when the sinner, by the Faith, accepts that work, his relationship is forever established. The same LORD is now the believer’s Advocate, at God’s right hand, to maintain his fellowship with God. 1 John 2:1-2.Certainly there are many Christians who know very little about true fellowship with God, although they are children of God. This relationship has been establi…

Child of God and Taking Hold of Eternal Life - Pastor David

There are many Christians who know very little about true fellowship with God, although they are children of God. What the member of the Body of Christ must come to know, is that we have been blessed...with ALL spiritual blessings in the heavenlies IN Christ. Ephesians 1:3.

True or False?Please take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now...The Child of God...Saved by Grace and Falling from GraceClick Here to watch the VIDEO on this messageWill a Child of God fall from Grace if he or she continues in sin?” Is there in the Word of God the answer to this question?The Greek word “Charis”, in the New Testament Scriptures, is translated “Grace” 128 times. Another form of the same Greek word, “Charisma,” is translated “Gift” 18 times. The word “Charis” is translated in the New Testament Scriptures, “Favour” six times. This same word is translated in 2 Cor. 1:15, “Benefit”; in 1 Corinthians 16:3, “Liberality”; in 1 Peter 2:20, “Acceptable”; in Acts 25:9 and Acts 24:27, “Pleasure”. In Ephesians 1:6 the believer accepted (is “Graced”) in the Beloved; the Greek verb is “Charitu”.The word “Grace” is not found in Matthew and Mark…

THIS is The Body of Christ’s Commission!There is no doubt that the member of the Body of Christ needs much training along Bible lines in order to work successfully with sinners in an effort to bring them to Christ; but the all-important thing is to believe in the terrible consequences of sin, the awful penalty awaiting the sinner at the Great White Throne judgment, and to know from personal experience that The LORD Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is an almighty Savior from sin and its consequences. Both here and hereafter.Such knowledge should create within the heart of every Child of God a p…

Regardless of what you might think, even many of your neighbors have never heard the Gospel of Grace before. They might be aware of other sentiments CALLED...the gospel, but it would AMAZE you to know the number of people who have sincerely never heard the True Gospel of the Grace of God.

True or False?Answer: TRUE! In Colossians 3, God explains to the Christian the meaning of Christ’s words in the seventeenth chapter of John, that the Christian is ‘IN THE WORLD’; but is ‘NOT OF THE WORLD’. Every Christian should read Colossians 3 at least one thousand times, and then by God’s all-sufficient Grace and almighty power, try to obey the command, “be ye doers of the Word and not hearers only.” Now, out of the 744 responses we received to this question, 95.5% of those that responded got it right!

True or False?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 10-15-2012Question: Can you, after truly BELIEVING in the LORD Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior, LOSE your Salvation and standing IN Christ as a member of the Body of Christ? Yes or No?Answer: NO! A Christian should be confident that the same sufficient grace of the same almighty Savior, that saved his soul, will keep him until the day of redemption. “Beloved, now are we the children of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall at appear, we shall be like Him: for we shall see Him as He is.” 1 John 3:2.

Yes or No?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 10-12-2012Question: Can a Child of God reach, through a SECOND work of Grace, the state of sinless perfection? Yes or No?Answer: NO! Christians have tried all kinds of religious schemes and joined all kinds of fanatical movements to get rid of their sinful natures. Many of them have deceived themselves, but no one else, into believing that they have been successful. There are some who claim for themselves that they have reached, through a second work of grace, the state of sinless perfection. Such a doctrine and position is not only contrary to Scripture, but contrary to the experience of any and every Christian.

When the sinner becomes a Christian, he receives a new nature from God; He or she is now a NEW DIRECT creation of God, he becomes a partaker of the Divine nature. John 1:12. However, because the Christian does not lose his old sinful nature, he is soon conscious of warfare within.

The Words of Jesus Christ and the Words of the RISEN Jesus Christ

Image
Click Here to watch the VIDEO on this messageThere has been, and even today still is, MUCH controversy over the teaching of The Mystery, which the Holy Spirit first revealed to and then taught through the Apostle Paul.MANY “Christian” Fundamentalists have joined with Modernists in attempting to exalt "the teachings of Jesus" (while on earth) above the Word of God through the Apostle Paul. They ask, "Which should bear the greater weight with us, the words of Jesus, or the words of Paul?"This is the classic straw-man argument. Because, see, they do not ask this because they truly desire to OBEY these "words of Jesus" and to see them obeyed. NO! For they flagrantly disregard and disobey them, from the Sermon on the Mount to the Great Commission.With regard to the Sermon on the Mount, they do not subject themselves to the Law of God given through Moses (Matthew 5:17-19). They do not bring gifts to altars of sacrifice (Matthew 5:23-24). They do not give freely…

Click Here to watch the VIDEO on this messagePlease read Romans 10:1-4; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 2:6-16; Romans 11:25-26Because of the prayer of Christ on the cross (Luke 23:34), and because Christ’s death had to be AS it was, and WHEN it was, by God’s eternal decree and purpose, (Acts 3:18; Acts 4:25-28; Acts 2:22; 1 Peter 1:18-20), God was willing to forgive Israel’s murder of Christ (Acts 7:51-54) on the ground of ignorance. (Acts 3:12-17). Some of the Israelites did repent. But the rulers and the nation as a whole would not.Later, from the Nation Israel, God had a remnant according to the election of grace, and “The rest were blinded.” (Romans 11:5-12). Israel stumbled over the Stumbling stone. (Romans 9:32-33). “For they, being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the END OF THE LAW for righteousness to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 10:3-4…
