“I am saved by grace through faith” seems to be the “go to” verse in any discussion involving the subjects of grace and salvation, but are these subjects really understood? Do we realize the depth of what this means, or are we just parroting what we’ve been told by the pulpit masters?
Yeshua likened the fruit of a false prophet to thorns and thistles. Contrary to what you may think, this addresses a much deeper dynamic than what you see with the surface-level idolatry, sexual immorality and greed that you see in today’s charismatic circles.
The bible says that miracles, signs and wonders follow the believer, but are also part of the end time deception. How can we tell the difference?
False prophets and their followers love to convince those watching that the Holy Spirit is moving upon them by putting on an outward show of jerks, quakes, nonsensical phrases and other odd “spiritual manifestations.”
Sometimes, the show is an outright lie – they are completely faking it. At other times, an actual spirit is pulling the strings. And sometimes it’s a little of both. Trying to discern just what is going on can be pretty difficult.
This article will attempt to lend some clarity to this phenomenon.
Abraham, “our father,” provided for us the right example of what it means to “live by faith.” His faith was action-oriented, and not merely internal. His faith was so “action oriented,” the guy (at 99 years old) CIRCUMCISED HIMSELF on the exact same day that God told him to do so… no questions asked! ((shudders))
Believe me, that takes more than just “mental assent”… that takes COMMITMENT and FAITHFULNESS! What does that say about your faith? Click through and we’ll explore this topic.
