Golden Nuggets Of Truth from My Facebook Page part 2 by Len Paxton

1 Cor. 10:10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

God doesn’t work from what might have been; He works from what is. There is hope for all today because of Calvary.

Romans 8:1-2 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Our heavenly Father knows what we need even before we ask and if God will provide for the birds and flowers, He will certainly take care of us. [ Matthew 6:8,25-33] . God is saying to us:” When you come into My presence, focus your attention on fellowship with Me– on getting to know Me. Don’t let your focus be on material things. I know what your needs are. Seek Me first.”

I personally believe that the church has been purposely “dumbed down” to the point it has become Theologically illiterate in order to prepare it to receive esoteric experiences and value those experiences above the Word of God.

Physical and spiritual adultery are both sin. Physical adultery; we all know what that is. Spiritual adultery is anytime a believer looks to anything for their justification, sanctification, victory, peace, etc.. other than Christ and Him Crucified………. Rom. 7:1-4

The law can never change our hearts. While it can and most certainly does, define sin; the law is powerless to give us victory over sin or make us stop sinning. It took the substitutionary death of Christ on the Cross to both pay the penalty for sin and to break the power that sin had over man. When we identify with Him in this; we can walk in a life of perpetual victory over the sin nature as well as acts of sin.

Todays esoteric prophets (so called) who are basing their walk with God on experiences and extra biblical “revelation” rather than on the Word, the Cross, and the Blood of Jesus; are conditioning the church for the greatest deception in recorded history.

For my dollar, far to many churches have replaced Holy Living classes with “dream interpretation” classes and all other type of foolishness. Angelic visitation has sadly stolen the focus from soul winning and true preaching of the Cross of Christ.

The key to all victory for a Christian is to put their faith in what Jesus did at the Cross and then, leave it there. Do not transfer your faith to any formula, ritual, law, rule, or anything else; Keep your faith solidly anchored in the Cross of Calvary and the work that Jesus there did.

Righteousness, Justification, Sanctification, etc.. is all “In Christ Jesus”. None of it is in “our own right”. It must be imputed to us on the basis of our faith in the finished work of Christ upon the Cross.

One of the ways that believers are shamed into not questioning the false doctrine in the Church today is they are told “don’t cause division, or touch not the Lords anointed”. Listen, in 2010 do not check your brains at the door. Anything that repudiates the Cross; RUN FROM IT.

As I have said; Real Bible unity must be based on truth (The Bible) not on experiences or even on love. I can love people involved with false doctrine but there can be no unity. I am sick of the false unity message that refuses accountability to Scripture.

I have often said ” I don’t care what the Bible teaches, but whatever it does teach is what I want.” The Bible must be my criteria and not my experiences.

The greatest revelation that some of us ever got was that ” God is smarter than I am”

Unbelief rejects God’s plan, God’s way, namely; The Message of The Cross, and puts something else in the place of the Cross.

Most of what the church today is offering up to the Lord is the “Strange Fire” of Nadab and Abihu, which speaks of greed, lust, and false authority. Rather than Holy Fire from the Brazen Altar which speaks of sacrifice.. CALVARY…

Lets make a break from the cultural religion of America. I refuse to use Christ for my own advantage. Let us follow the Christ of Calvary and not our own home spun ideas about who He is.

I do not care if a Church has 50,000 people in it; that doesn’t mean that God is there. If there is no conviction of sin; if there is no repentance; if there are no changed lives; If the message is “self” GOD IS NOT IN IT…..

The Bible is the most exciting, relavent, up to date, informative, inspirational, book ever written. It is God’s Holy Word. Don’t have time to read it ? One day you won’t.

“Having therefore been justified by faith, peace we are having with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1 Kenneth Wuest Expanded Translation.

In so many churches today the cross is not mentioned. The blood is avoided because we don’t want to offend visitors. And worship is often a canned performance that involves plenty of rhythm and orchestration but little or no substance. We can produce noise,but often there is no heart … and certainly no tears.

It is so easy for self-proclaimed prophets to make up weird crazy doctrines and get thousands of followers, because in many churches there is a great lack of Christian discipleship based on the word of God. The focus on Jesus and his teaching and discipleship has been replaced with “feel-good teachings” that totally lacks the important teachings about repentance, sin, hell,grace and holiness.

BELIEVE GOD. Do not allow your eyes and ears to be filled with fear concerning 2010. We have a God who is able to keep us and even to promote us during hard times. Don’t let your hearts be troubled. We, as the body of Jesus, have faith, hope, and love to share with a world that is suffering and hurting. Be strong and expect great things to happen.

Adversity in God’s own way, can be a powerful friend and teacher. We can learn much wisdom in the trials of adverse circumstances. Were God to completly remove adversity from us; He would consign us to a fools fate.

the famine is of Christian charity and public spirit. Men wish to grow rich upon the miseries of their country, and there is no limit to their extortions. All seem holding back what they have in the hope that a starving army will raise the price of bread and meat still higher. Brig. Gen. Elisha Franklin Paxton

In the books Christians buy today you will find little mention of brokenness. We are not interested in a life that might require suffering, patience, purging or the discipline of the Lord. We want our blessings … and we want them now! So we look for the Christian brand of spiritualized self-help that is quick and painless.

the Christian can cause the sin nature to come roaring back to life in them when they commit an act of sin and then try to get victory over it by their own efforts. You will be defeated every time you do that. Keep your faith in the finished work of Christ upon the Cross and realize that, in the mind of God, you were …crucified with Him. You were buried with Him, and you were raised to newness of life in Christ.

Fear, among many other things, is deeply rooted in our sinful nature. The Holy Spirit has to go through so many layers of our carnality. Just keep your faith in what Jesus did for you at the Cross and the Holy Spirit will bring about your sanctification and conform you into the image of Christ. Look only to Christ Cru…cified and you will have victory over fear; insecurity; and all else.
