Great Study! Many are called few are chosen. Many denotes the larger quantity but not all. Few of course denotes a much lesser quantity. Chosen is an act of God and not an action in the capacity of man. The Elect or Remnant illustrates that the true church is always a small group within the generations. This is an excellent study by Jim Dodson and an important consideration for the Church today with so much satanic Liberalism affecting churches. Thank you Jim. God be with your ministry.
American 'Liberty': Requiring Sinful Murder It ought to be noted that any worldly "liberty", especially American "liberty", requires murder to be committed in order to "save" that American "liberty". Many American patriots, including the patriotic American rednecks, say that they are willing to fight and die for American "liberty." With regards to the fighting for American "liberty", that also requires murder to be committed in the name of American "liberty." This is why American soldiers murder and rape non-American civilians. Since World War II, the United States of America has sinfully murdered and raped non-American civilians by bombing China, Korea, Guatemala, Indonesia, Cuba, Vietnam, Congo, Laos, Peru, Cambodia, Granada, Libya, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama, Iraq, Sudan, Afghanistan, and Yugoslavia. We also realize that The Liberty offered by Jesus in John 8:36 does not require sinful murder of non-American civilians. It is sad how America licenses sinful murder and rape in the name of saving American "liberty" from "tyranny." This sinful murder and rape committed in the name of American "liberty" is really rebellion against Abba Father, Jesus The Son, and The Holy Spirit, and it shall be punished severely.
Remembering Luke 19 We ought to remember Luke 19, especially The Parable of The Nobleman in Luke 19:11-27 in response to "laws" written by sinful people, including the United States Constitution. Like the citizens who despised the nobleman, the antichrist rebels say, "we will not have this man to reign over us." These antichrist rebels do not want The King of Kings to reign over them, but instead demand their "liberty." This sermon is a very helpful response to the United States Constitution.
Great Sermon! Amen to the false notion that nationalism is a good idea. As well the false notion that globalism is a good idea. God made nations for reason, that they might not come together, and use commonality to do what they ought not to do.
"And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one anothers speech."
Fallen man still tries to unify under fallen man. And it will be temporarily so when the Antichrist has his time.
John 3:16: A Response to Nationalism We ought to remember John 3, especially John 3:16 in response to nationalism and patriotism, especially American patriotism. For God (Abba Father) so loved the world, that He (Abba Father) gave His Only Begotten Son (Jesus), that whosoever believeth in Him (Jesus) should not perish, but have everlasting life. The Wonderful Words of John 3:16 out to inspire us to preach The Global Gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations.
The Hidden Faith of The Founding Fathers There is a documentary published in 2008, then rereleased in 2010, called The Hidden Faith of the Founding Fathers. This documentary shows that the Founding Fathers of the United States of America were antichrists, particularly because of their connection to Enlightenment Freemasonry. This documentary called The Hidden Faith of the Founding Fathers is a Christian documentary, so it frequently references Biblical passages from The King James Version of The Bible. This documentary is also a call for America to repent of Deism, Freemasonry, and all other antichrist philosophies and religions which were propagated by the Founding Fathers of the United States of America.
Reference to John Gill‚Äôs Exposition of The Bible Very helpful reference to John Gill's Exposition of The Bible, especially the commentary on Isaiah 60:12, reading "The country that will not serve The Lord Christ, and worship Him with His Church and People; that will not be obedient to The Laws and Ordinances of His House; but appoint another head over them, the pope of Rome; and make other laws, and set up other ordinances, rejecting The Authority of Christ, The Rule of His Word, and The Order of His Churches: yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted; even all the antichristian states, when the vials of God's wrath will be poured out upon them;." Sadly, the people of America, who have departed from The Biblical Faith of The Puritans, have appointed another head over them called the United States Constitution. Also tragic is that the nations of the world have appointed another head over them called the United Nations (UN), thus America and all other nations are now rejecting The Authority of Christ, The Rule of His Word, and The Order of His Churches. This podcast is a call for all nations to repent of rebellion against The Kingship of Jesus Christ.
First Amendment: Violation of Jehovah's Law The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Of course, we realize that the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution violates Jehovah's Law set forth in The Ten Commandments, including The First Commandment and The Second Commandment. It is commonly known that the United States Bill of Rights was created on 25 September, 1789 and ratified by 15 December, 1791. We also know that the United States Bill of Rights was also written by the unbelieving Founding Father James Madison. This podcast shows that Jehovah's Law is The Righteous and Absolute Law. A podcast like this shows that the United States Bill of Rights is really an attack on The Ten Commandments.
Great Sermon! It is better to have States that oppose abortion among those that do not, than to have a national government with authority to supersede them all, and promote murder of the unborn with no opposition, which is coming soon. The logic of critics of Amendment 10 fails. Since the reality of the fallen nature of man exists, it is better to limit any power that fallen men have over others, as long as the prince of this world remains prince of this world. In the meantime, there will be no Biblical government until the Lord returns and sets it up.
States' Rights: Not Dead Since Appomattox Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase claimed that after the surrender of the Confederacy at Appomattox on 09 April, 1865, that, "State's rights died at Appomattox." This antichrist principle called "states' rights" did not die at Appomattox on 09 April, 1865. It is still in effect to this day since Amendment 10 of the American Constitution was ratified on 15 December, 1791. Republican Union officer, Col. Robert Ingersoll claimed that, ‚ÄúThe great stumbling block, the great obstruction in Lincoln‚Äôs way and in the way of thousands was the old doctrine of State‚Äôs Rights." America was exalted because of Puritan Righteousness. This sermon shows that righteousness, not "states' rights", is what really exalts all the nations of the earth. For "states' rights" is unrighteousness.
Prince Messiah‚Äôs Claims to Dominion (1832) There is an article written by Covenanter by James R. Willson called Prince Messiah‚Äôs Claims to Dominion Over All Governments: and the Disregard of his Authority by the United States, in the Federal Constitution (first published in 1832 AD). This article shows how the antichrist United States of America willfully rebelled, and still continues, to rebel against Abba Father, Jesus The Son, and The Holy Spirit as the USA did on both 29 June, 1776 and 04 July, 1776 under the banner of "liberty". This article is a sobering example of how America repudiated its Puritan Heritage in favor of Masonic Enlightenment ideals of "liberty."
Immigration Laws: Attack on Great Commission While we are required to obey the law in Romans 13:1-7, it ought to be noted that immigration laws are an attack on The Great Commission. We know that Jesus mandated The Great Commission. We also realize that immigration enforcement is an attack on Biblical Evangelism, since it insists on enforcing so-called immigration "laws", even when such immigration "laws" conflict with Jehovah's Law. We as believers are as strangers and pilgrims on the earth. This sermon is a call to proclaim The Gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations.
Nationalism: Hurtful To The Great Commission It is worth noting The Example of The Great Commission in Matthew 28:16-20, Mark 16:14-18, Luke 24:44-49, John 20:19-23 and Acts 1:4-8 in response to this craze called nationalism, especially American nationalism. This is because nationalism, as well as localism, are both hurtful to The Cause of The Great Commission. The Example of The Great Commission should also be noted in response to this craze called patriotism. This sermon shows that nationalism and localism are just as antichrist as the globalism of the United Nations.
States' Rights: An Antichrist Principle Because the United States of America was born of antichrist Freemasonry, it means that the principle of "states' rights" is also antichrist. Back in The Old Testament, there were provinces and not "states". The issue of "states' rights" needs to be confronted because the principle of "states' rights" and "state sovereignty" is the reason why America is now preparing for the coming of the antichrist.
