1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:
2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
Most Oneness Pentecostals believe that water baptism is essential to salvation, and not merely symbolic in nature, and because they believe that one must have faith and repent before being baptized, baptisms of infants or by compulsion are deemed unacceptable. Oneness believers believe that for water baptism to be valid, one must be baptized in the name of Jesus, rather than the mainstream baptismal formula in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. This follows the examples found in the Book of Acts. "Jesus-Name" is a description used to refer to Oneness Pentecostals and their baptismal beliefs. Oneness Pentecostalism rejects all concepts of a subordination, duality, trinity, pantheon, co-equality, co-eternity, or other versions of the Godhead that assert plural gods, plural beings, divine "persons", individuals, or multiple centers of consciousness within that Godhead. It equally denies all concepts of Jesus as anything other than fully God and fully man, together with all teachings that assert that he was merely a "good man," or only a sinless man, high priest or prophet, rather than God himself. Oneness doctrine declares that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, but that this happened only when he was born from Mary on Earth. It rejects the view that any person can "obtain" the status of God whether by works or by grace, maintaining that Jesus Christ did not "obtain" his status, but rather that he is the one, eternal God himself manifested in the flesh according to the Oneness Pentecostal interpretation of 1 Timothy 3:16, as is rendered in the King James Version. Oneness Pentecostalism subscribes to the doctrine of Sola Scriptura. They view the Bible as the inspired Word of God, and as absolutely inerrant in its contents (though not necessarily in every translation). They specifically reject the conclusions of church councils such as the Council of Nicea and the Nicene Creed. They believe that mainstream Trinitarian Christians ha
The Pentecostal movement that started at Azusa Street had a great impact that was felt around the world. Yet it was prophesied in 1909 that about one hundred years later (that would from 2009 and onwards) there would be another revival, one that would be as powerful as the Azusa street movement, but more widely distributed. In the 1906 'Azusa Street' Revival three things were also foretold about the future. In the last days three things will happen in the great Pentecostal Movement:
1) There will be an over-emphasis on power, rather than on righteousness.
2) There will be an overemphasis on praise, to a God they no longer pray to.
3) There will be an overemphasis on the gifts of the Spirit, rather than on the Lordship of Christ.
Clearly, the truth of this is now tragically evident for all to see. Everyone knows that the mainstream gospel being preached today is nearly devoid of any mention of repentance, sin, or holiness. And it is the youth that are going to largely the feel the church's decline (though they hardly know it). And many people are seeking signs (tongues, miracles, etc.) instead of salvation (which comes by faith unto obedience and baptism in Jesus Christ's name, even as he command us to do so in the book of Acts).
Baptism is nothing new in God's plan of salvation. It's something He always used to separate sin from mankind. It was foreshadowed by the Scriptures long ago in the old Testament. Excerpt... "Baptism is always accompanied by faith and repentance. (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38) Baptism is an act of faith. (James 2:15-26) Baptism is done to saves us (1 Peter 3:21)..."

If the Bible has been changed or has been corrupted, then that would mean the Koran is corrupt as well, since it is a confirmation of the Scriptures which came before it: Quran 10:37. Therefore, the Bible is truth, and the Quran is a lie. "Add thou not unto His Words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar."
(Proverbs 30:6) ~ See Also Revelation 22:18-19 ~ Muslims have been deceived by the greatest of all deceivers himself. Muslims, must repent and turn to Jesus Christ for the salvation of the
Is God a triad (trintas as created by Tertullian in 200 AD) in Unity? Part two of the Bishop David Bernard interview on the Oneness of God. In part two, we transition into tough scriptures that at first glance, may indicate two or three separate persons or distinctions in the Godhead before time itself. However, by study we know that God id a Holy One, said over 21 times in scripture. The Jews of yesterday and today still hold to one God, as we should also, but with the revelation that Jesus was unique creation of God, and Him manifested in the flesh for our salvation.
Can we harmonize all scripture and still believe in the Oneness of God? Are there tough verses of scripture that are impossible to explain on the Godhead? Hopefully your questions will be answered in part two with Bishop David K Bernard. The other part is here on this channel and called "Logos, Trinity and the One True God by David Bernard."
Today, hundreds of millions hold to a belief system and salvation practice that no one had ever held until relatively recently. The sinners prayer is a invention that changes God's plan of salvation. The Sinner's Prayer is a modern apostasy and false teaching that prevents people from being saved. The earliest idea of sinners prayer is less than 500 years old. The prayer itself dates to the Billy Sunday era; however, the basis for talking in prayer for salvation goes back a few hundred years. It wasn't formalized as a theology until around the time of Billy Graham.
No one in the word of God ever prayed for their initial salvation. They did however believe, repent, confess Jesus and be immersed in his name in water for the forgiveness of their sins. So if you prayed the "sinners prayer" for your salvation, you are still lost in your sins, because it is not what God said to do.
How did the Sinner's Prayer evolve into what it is today? Although everyone was not following exactly what the Apostles taught after the Reformation, for the first time in over a thousand years the general populace was reading the Scriptures. Thanks in part to the invention of the printing press. Many still held to the importance of water baptism in the New Birth process, but because of Catholicism, it was not in the name of Jesus, as it changed in 325 AD to the titles father, son and Holy Ghost and was done three times for the newly formed trinity teaching. Also it was done by sprinkling on infants, because of a Catholics agreeing upon this in 1311.
The majority still held to the validity of infant baptism even though they disagreed on it's significance. The influence of the preachers eventually led to the popular notion that one was forgiven at infant baptism but not yet reborn. Most Protestants were confused or ambivalent about the connection between rebirth and forgiveness.
The Great Awakening of the 1700's changed all of that. Though Protestants were lukewarm on the practice of baptism, Gr
There are an average of 20 veterans who commit suicide. On average, there are 123 suicides per day. One is too many. In the book of Job we find that the devil needed permission from God to destroy his family, livestock and belongings. As God had placed a hedge round about him. And the devil received permission he simply went in and did his deeds of destruction. However, whenever the demons are not allowed to kill you, sometimes they place that thought in your mind. They want you to do what they are not allowed to, but make as though you thought such ideas. The resulting action of self murder will land in hell, and forever in the torments. The demons hate mankind made in God's image so all their desire is to see our deaths. Don't be deceived by the devil. As God has a way out of every trap of the devil. But the truth is that Jesus made a way that nobody can stop, and you can have salvation, help and divine assistance in your time of need if simply call His name, and obey His word. Starting with Acts 2:38. God cares and loves you even and has the best despite mankind's created snares and evils.
A super sermon. One of Josh's newest sermons on a gift from God that nobody ever wants, yet many do need. Apostle Paul was given such a gift to keep him humble. And sometimes the thing that you dread the most comes into your life in order to keep you saved. However, God in His goodness afflicts you because the weight of eternal salvation outweighs our temporal life. In other words, to help you maintain your salvation and fall into sin, God will often allow your personal affliction to keep you in the right spirit.
At all levels, there is teacher or a principal, similarly enlightened person is teacher of last stage of spirituality. Those who have experienced all worldly things and want salvation; the enlightened person helps them for PHD level, after which those seekers get liberated from this world.
Param Pujya Dadabhagwan knew Shri Simandhar swami and he propounds to worship him as he is living God, through whom we can achieve ultimate salvation. Lord Mahavir, Shri Krishna are Vitrang lords and have not created the sects of Jainism and Vaishnav. It was later created by the followers due to wrong understanding. They were Spiritual Teachers, leaders, scientist, who gave knowledge of self.
91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
