OF WHOM THE WORLD WAS NOT WORTHY

I’ve read this book more than once. Though the names of the characters have been changed, OF WHOM THE WORLD IS NOT WORTHY is a true story about real people. It is the story of a family in Nazi occupied Yugoslavia during World War II. They prayed during the darkest days of the war. They trusted God and received wonderful answers to their prayers. They did not believe that Christians should bear arms or take a human life, ever. The husband was an evangelist, later becoming the pastor of a small Baptist church. The whole family prayed for friend and foe alike. This book will build your faith and it will give you a refreshing glimpse of genuine Christianity.

OF WHOM THE WORLD WAS NOT WORTHY

EVEN NOW THERE ARE MANY ANTICHRISTS

1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

In our age we have . . .

(1) Christianity merging with the false gospel of Roman Catholicism.

(2) Christianity merging with politics and the military.

(3) Christianity merging with secular Israel.

(4) Christianity merging with occult practices. (The “Lakeland Revival” is a very recent example.)

2 Corinthians 6:17-18 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

MY MOM

These are all the articles I’ve posted about my mother.  The Lord Jesus Christ is the “Man Under Authority” and with Him all things are possible.  The Lord Jesus Christ still heals and He still saves, even in the eleventh hour.

TAKE HEED THAT NO MAN DECEIVE YOU – Part 2

Years ago, my husband and I met three very sweet ladies at the church we attended. We lovingly called them “the Catholic ladies” because, like us, they had come out of Roman Catholicism. We could all relate to one another.

These three middle aged ladies had a lot of zeal, and a strong desire to evangelize. They told us about their attempts to preach in the park near their home. I think they were the only ones who were born again in their families. All three were married, and all three had unsaved husbands who they witnessed to and prayed for. We knew all too well what it was like to have unsaved family members still in the Catholic Church. When my husband and I were born again we knew, by God’s word and by the Holy Spirit that indwelt us, that we had to witness to the Roman Catholics within our sphere of influence. We wanted to share the truth of the Gospel with our unsaved loved ones, and others, because we cared for them.

Can you imagine how surprised we were when one Sunday morning the most enthusiastic one of these three ladies came up to us and asked if we thought the Roman Catholics were fine just the way they were. She said she had just talked with our Senior Pastor and he said Roman Catholics were saved. In other words, there was no need to evangelize the Roman Catholic. I had just finished teaching Sunday School that particular morning, and was about to leave the building when she stopped me with this strange inquiry. I was about to answer her when another Pastor, the Pastor I worked for, walked by. I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want him to hear what I was about to say. After he passed by, I told her what I really thought.

Now here are two sobering observations. How was she so easily influenced by a Pastor when she surely knew better, and why didn’t I want the Pastor to hear what I was going to tell my friend? I surely knew better, and if either of the two Pastors didn’t think Roman Catholics should be evangelized they definitely needed to be told otherwise.

This little episode is just one small example of how easy it is to be led astray. I don’t think my friend ever embraced the lie, but I do know that her friend, who was one of the evangelistic “three” did.

There is serious danger in esteeming a Pastor’s word above the Word of God.

There is serious danger in suppressing truth in order not to disagree with the Pastor.

We both knew better.

Years later, after I left the church, I wrote a letter to the Pastor I had worked for. I asked him if he would publicly address the issue of Roman Catholicism. I said that I was asking him to do so because his pastoral position, in a worldwide ministry, gave him the potential to reach many with the truth. I wrote to no avail.

SIGNS AND WONDERS – Part 2

The Bible teaches that the gifts of the Holy Spirit have not ceased.

The Bible also teaches us to beware of lying signs and wonders.

When I was involved in the Roman Catholic Charismatic Renewal I was exposed to lying signs and wonders. I heard of rosary beads turning to gold as a result of people visiting Marian Shrines, and I saw many “slain in the spirit.” These people who were “slain in the spirit” were not born again and had a strong devotion to Mary. They were also deeply steeped in all of Rome’s other very false doctrines. This included acceptance of what they believed to be Marian apparitions, which are really demonic impersonating spirits. When I was born again I realized that the supernatural phenomena I had experienced was from the devil, not from the Lord. Wow, what a shock!

Then I realized that false signs and wonders were not limited to Rome, but are present in the Protestant Church as well. Instead of gold rosaries we see gold teeth and gold dust in the Protestant Church. We also see “slain in the spirit” in the Protestant Church which, though widely accepted, is not a biblical practice. I think I would feel safer in a “dead church” where absolutely nothing is happening, than in a place where demonic supernatural phenomena is being exhibited. Folks the devil is real, and he is dangerous!

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

2 Thessalonians 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2 Timothy 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. {reprobate: or, of no judgment}

Revelation 13:13-14 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
