A Discussion On Divorce And Remarriage

Are we really in tune with what Christ and his Apostles taught about divorce and remarriage?

What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. -Jesus Christ

A reader recently posed a question to me concerning my view on divorce and remarriage. Though I could have probably satisfied her request with a ‘nutshell’ answer I felt it might be a good time to share my view (and experience) in an article for all to consider.

The issue of divorce and remarriage by those professing faith in Christ is one that is frequently addressed and taught upon in the Church today. But it is my personal opinion that it is seldom addressed in a manner that is in accord with the true teachings of the New Testament. At the risk of taking a hit to my readership stats (hopefully I am more concerned about winning God’s approval than yours!) let’s take a look at what the Bible really does and does not say about this topic.

Your Ark Of Safety

Do YOU have an Ark? You are going to need one!

(The following is a modified excerpt from the booklet ‘ Escape or Passover’ by Paul Benson)

For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Hebrews 10:36-37

Jesus is most certainly coming! It’s only a matter of when. In the fast-food mentality of the modern Church extolling the virtues of patience and perseverance has been cast aside in favor of preaching/selling principals of prosperity. Teachings which promise to get you what you want from God, and get it for you now! But patience and endurance are both truly necessary to receive favor and fulfillment of promise from God; and as this age progresses they will become all the more needful and precious.

The Blood of Christ – Zac Poonen

A truly anointed man of God can say more with a few paragraphs than most of today’s ear-ticklers can with entire books filled with their ‘great swelling words of vanity’ (2Peter 2:18)!

by Zac Poonen

Forgiveness of our past sins is our very first and our constant need. The guilt of our sins could not be removed by God by any other way than by the payment of the full penalty for our sins. “Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness” (Hebrews 9:22).

We need the blood of Christ to cleanse us DAILY!

What Do I See In America’s Future?

Is it blue sky and clear sailing ahead for America like so many are prophesying today?

 

by Paul Benson

I hear preachers and teachers on a regular basis claiming America is Babylon the Great, and prophesying that her demise is about to happen ANY DAY NOW! But, though many are firmly entrenched in their belief of an imminent destruction of America, I do not share that vision. Let me try to explain what I do see ahead for this nation.

The Most Important Article I Have Ever Written!

by Paul Benson

As I contemplate the scope of the work I have done, laboring to fulfill the call and burden the Lord has placed within my heart and spirit, I give serious thought as to what really ‘gets it done’ so to speak.

If one were to ask me what is the most crucial word I have given (outside of the call to repent and come to Christ) I would have to say it is what the Lord spoke to me about the serious nature and damage done by the error of the pre-trib rapture hoax that has inundated the modern Church in the last decades.

Jerusalem in the End-times – David Pawson

What lays ahead for Jerusalem is a far cry from what many are teaching!

jerusalem-331370_640

In my writings dealing with the many falsehoods surrounding the pre-trib rapture teaching I have many times pointed out the error of the claim the coming time of tribulation is ALL about God dealing with Israel. It’s the time of Jacob’s trouble! they claim, and: The Church has no part of the events of that time!

And as I have repeatedly shown, a thorough examine of the prophecies dealing with the last days shows that: as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth (Luke 21:35); and that the entire world will be called to repentance in that day – including the Church!

But, to maintain a proper balance and biblical perspective of end-time matters, we must not lose sight of the significant and earth-shattering events that WILL transpire in the middle east (and in Jerusalem in particular) in that day. In the following video brother David Pawson gives a talk that boldly challenges the misconceptions many have about what lays ahead for the nation of Israel. I really admire the way he addresses many topics the weak-hearted and weak-kneed refuse to preach on. Let me know what you think of the message.

John Haller’s Prophecy Update

Hi Folks! As a teacher with somewhat of a narrowed focus of ministry I realize my readers need much more than a steady diet of my rebuke and correction of the many errors that plague the modern believer. I would like to recommend to you someone I feel really has his finger on the pulse of world events and how they relate to biblical prophecy being fulfilled in our lifetime.

His name is John Haller and he has a weekly video presentation I have been following for quite some time now. I think you would truly be benefited by what he has to say. Here is where you can find his work:

John Haller’s Prophecy Updates and Teachings

Here is his latest ‘update’ on Youtube. Check it out, be encouraged, and get informed! P.B.

The Sifting Process – David Wilkerson

wilkerson

Hello brothers and sisters in Christ. Last week I wrote about the coming purge of Christianity that will precede the Return of our Lord. Here is a great message by David Wilkerson that discusses this process of purification on an individual level.

I have stated many times I feel the greatest preparation one can do for what lies ahead is to get rid of whatever might be keeping you out of God’s favor and his perfect will for your life, and to immerse yourself in his Holy Word. To those who are compromised and defiled with the things of this world the days ahead are going to be a horrible time of purging. Continue reading “The Sifting Process – David Wilkerson”

The Biblical Timing of the Rapture part 4: The Coming Purge of Apostate Christianity!

Does the Bible clearly give us a reason for the Church going through the time of tribulation prophesied to occur prior to the Coming of Christ to catch-away his faithful? Yes, it absolutely does!

The Pre-trib Rapture

by Paul Benson

(This is part 4 of a series on the biblical timing of the catching-away of the believers to meet Christ. You can find part 1 HERE.)

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. Revelation 19:7

Though many insist God’s dealings with his people during the final years of ‘tribulation’ only concern the Jews, and that there is no reason for the Church to endure those chaotic times, the Scriptures paint a completely different picture. Let’s see what the Bible has to say about this matter. Continue reading “The Biblical Timing of the Rapture part 4: The Coming Purge of Apostate Christianity!”

Christ Magnified in Our Bodies – Leonard Ravenhill

Does the world truly see Jesus in you or I? If not they should!

From time to time I like to revisit the sermons of great men of God who knew the ‘old paths’ and not the compromised and convoluted message we are hearing from most of today’s preachers and teachers.

If you are not getting fed and challenged by the preaching and teaching you are getting from your fellowship attendance (or lack thereof), do yourself a favor and seek out the preaching of those whose will do so. Feed your spirit-man. Don’t let him starve!

Truth is timeless. And a message that is truly anointed is just as anointed today as it was the day it was preached. Here is a sermon by Leonard Ravenhill that I believe exemplifies the true Gospel message. The video quality is not the greatest but the preaching sure is! Enjoy.
