Moslem America conclusion.

Written by Rev.A.R.Smith

Letrepparttar wicked forsake his way, andrepparttar 140386 unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return untorepparttar 140387 LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saithrepparttar 140388 LORD. For asrepparttar 140389 heavens are higher thanrepparttar 140390 earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:7-9. Inrepparttar 140391 preceding scripture there has been quite a disagreement as torepparttar 140392 ability of man to haverepparttar 140393 mind of God. 1Co 2:16 For who hath knownrepparttar 140394 mind ofrepparttar 140395 Lord, that he may instruct him? But we haverepparttar 140396 mind of Christ. As Christians we do haverepparttar 140397 mind of Christ, His ways, His attitude, His thoughts but we do not haverepparttar 140398 mind of God for one simple reason, Christ doesn’t. Read; Mar 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, notrepparttar 140399 angels which are in heaven, neitherrepparttar 140400 Son, butrepparttar 140401 Father. If Christ hadrepparttar 140402 total mind of God then this scripture would not be true. “Letrepparttar 140403 wicked forsake his way, andrepparttar 140404 unrighteous man his thoughts:” Many religious groups are trying to gain a foothold in society today to encourage a different type of life style. They are doing this by changingrepparttar 140405 word of God to suite their congregations. Making religious tolerance their number 1 priority. Nowhere in scripture can it be found that Jesus was ever tolerant of false or misleading doctrine. The Moslem religion is a false religion along with many others that are deceivingrepparttar 140406 people and drawing them away fromrepparttar 140407 truth. 2Ti 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself withrepparttar 140408 affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. Lets read an article I foundrepparttar 140409 other day. “Evangelical Leader Threatens to Use His Political Muscle Against Some Democrats. In a letter his aides say is being sent to more than one million of his supporters, he promises "a battle of enormous proportions from sea to shining sea" if President Bush fails to appoint "strict constructionist" jurists or if Democrats filibuster to block conservative nominees.” Are we not to be about our Fathers business or are we to be asrepparttar 140410 Moslem nations and become involved in strong-armed defiance ofrepparttar 140411 freedom ofrepparttar 140412 people to live their lives as they choose. It seems thatrepparttar 140413 church is becoming involved in everything thatrepparttar 140414 Apostle Paul warned us not to be. The future of Christianity in America is not based on Religious tolerance of, Allah, Same Sex Marriage, Strong armed tactics in politics or changing Gods Word to gain a bigger congregation, its based on, Luke 10:25-28, And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written inrepparttar 140415 law? how readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt loverepparttar 140416 Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. More and more we are seeingrepparttar 140417 Moslem religion being praised on television and evangelical preachers defyingrepparttar 140418 freedom ofrepparttar 140419 people to make up their own minds. Moslems tell their people what to think, do, act and dress, are we converting to this type of evangelism, has America taken its first steeps toward Mohammadism? Are good will jesters, friendly faces on television, and a form of religion deceiving us?

There is a River...

There is a River

Terry Dashner…………Faith Fellowship Church PO Box 1586 Broken Arrow, OK 74013

Ezekiel sees a river that has unusual properties. In Chapter 47 of Ezekiel, a body of water is seen as a stream that develops into a river that cannot be forded. What is unusual about this stream is that it enlarges into a great flowing river without any tributaries adding to it. The water has life-generating properties that cause it to increase without additional sources. You might say that it has a life of its own.

Doesrepparttar Bible say more about this river of living water? Yes, it does. The beginning pages ofrepparttar 140314 Bible speak about a river flowing fromrepparttar 140315 Garden of Eden. The closing chapters ofrepparttar 140316 Bible endrepparttar 140317 story of man on earth and open a door torepparttar 140318 world beyond by describing, in detail,repparttar 140319 river flowing fromrepparttar 140320 Throne of God, throughoutrepparttar 140321 Eternal City.

Is there anything worth noting about this river? I think so. I want to share some ofrepparttar 140322 more important properties aboutrepparttar 140323 river of God. To do this, I want to seek answers to four questions aboutrepparttar 140324 river. First, I want to identifyrepparttar 140325 river. Second, I want to locate its origin. Third, I want list its various properties. And, finally, I want to state its relationship to us,repparttar 140326 Church. So, here I go.

What isrepparttar 140327 river in question? Revelation 22: 1-2 says, “Thenrepparttar 140328 angel showed merepparttar 140329 river ofrepparttar 140330 water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing fromrepparttar 140331 throne of God and ofrepparttar 140332 Lamb downrepparttar 140333 middle ofrepparttar 140334 great street ofrepparttar 140335 city. On each side ofrepparttar 140336 river stoodrepparttar 140337 tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. Andrepparttar 140338 leaves ofrepparttar 140339 tree are forrepparttar 140340 healing ofrepparttar 140341 nations.” (NIV) The river isrepparttar 140342 river of life. It’s a river that hasrepparttar 140343 properties of life. Its properties of life sustainrepparttar 140344 tree of life, producing a crop of fruit every month and yielding leaves that heal nations. There is a river of life.

Revelation 21:6 says, “…To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost fromrepparttar 140345 spring ofrepparttar 140346 water of life.” (NIV) The river is also called a spring. Ezekiel saw it as a spring that developed into a river without tributaries. The Bible says that anyone may drink fromrepparttar 140347 spring, but only torepparttar 140348 thirsty willrepparttar 140349 water be given. Are you thirsty forrepparttar 140350 river of life? Jesus said that He isrepparttar 140351 water of Life. If you are thirsty, come to Jesus. He, only He alone, can quench your thirst for life.

Where doesrepparttar 140352 river originate? Revelation 22: 1-2 givesrepparttar 140353 source of its life giving flow. The water comes fromrepparttar 140354 Throne of God andrepparttar 140355 Lamb. If it comes fromrepparttar 140356 Father andrepparttar 140357 Son of God, it must berepparttar 140358 Spirit of God. In other words,repparttar 140359 Holy Spirit givesrepparttar 140360 water its properties of eternal life. The Spirit of God is often likened to water. In John 7: 37 it says, “Onrepparttar 140361 last and greatest day ofrepparttar 140362 Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, ‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, asrepparttar 140363 scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him. (39) By this he meantrepparttar 140364 Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive…” (NIV) Interesting, is it not? Those who come to Jesus to drink Him in, they are givenrepparttar 140365 Holy Spirit to not only quench their thirst, but to give forth to others to drink. Wow, believers haverepparttar 140366 river of life flowing through them.
