MY HOPE FOR 2014


Hello again folks! I wish to repeat that I do most heartily agree with the principle of: "agree to disagree'' if and when folks are not on the same page. This applies to business sometimes, politics sometimes but, it seems to me, that it is hard to apply to Christians when they are welded to their movements theories, practices or 'Articles of Faith' et al. Yes, some doctrines such as the Godhood of Jesus Christ and infallibility of His Word, are immutable and immovable and a stake in the ground.

But the belief systems around Cessationism and the Pre-Tribulation rapture theory seem to me these days to be more a battleground than a forum for discussion. Indeed, some fellowships cannot "agree to disagree" about what I term 'secondary theology' and are so 'sold out' on their movements oft man-made biblical wrestling that many folks, like me, are left out in the cold - so to speak over the timing of the rapture rather than something much more serious. This is frustrating yet another 'sign of the times'.

Please promise me this in 2014: If a 'Peace' deal centered in Jerusalem [Israel] is signed and a man arises with a Plan to reinvent the worlds faltering economy in 2014, you will not be one of those who 'fall away' because you were wrong, were taught wrong or you are just plain disappointed that you will not escape the coming Tri-Bul-ation. Whatever we believe and/or however we interpret the Word [or our leaders and Pastors], God will perform His Word in His Time and in accordance with His Will.

Please also remember this: The most effective deceivers are those who are themselves deceived. May the LORD truly bless you in 2014.

Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 31-Dec-2013
