JENNIFER – Despite the culture wars, Jesus is still Lord. (Stock.xchng)
As news editor for Charisma magazine, I read hundreds of stories every week about the good, bad and ugly. Unfortunately, most of it is bad and ugly.
Through this lens, it’s clear that anti-Christ agendas and false gospels are rising. In the world, we see the homosexual agenda, the socialist agenda, the atheist agenda and so on. In the church, we see the hypergrace movement, sexual scandals in the church and cessationist wars that grieve the Holy Spirit.
Still, Jesus is Lord.
1. CHICO – JENNIFER LECLAIRE IS CORRECT WHEN SHE SAYS: QUOTE, “it’s clear that anti-Christ agendas and false gospels are rising. In the world” ENDQUOTE. “BUT, SHE IS DEAD WRONG WHEN SHE SAYS AND I QUOTE, “we see the hypergrace movement, sexual scandals in the church and cessationist wars that grieve the Holy Spirit.”
THERE IS NO “HYPERGRACE MOVEMENT, SEXUAL SCANDALS” NOR “CESSATIONIST WARS” IN THE CHURCH (BODY OF BELIEVERS), PERIOD!!! I DO BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE THESE THINGS HAPPENING IN “ RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS IN THE WORLD.”
TRUE BELIEVERS IN CHRIST JESUS HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVING INSIDE THEM. Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but “Christ liveth in me:” and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. THE HOLY SPIRIT, “ INSIDE THE BELIEVER,” WOULD NEVER ALLOW “ THE BELIEVER “ TO PARTICIPATE IN THESE, (HYPERGRACE MOVEMENT OR SEXUAL SCANDALS), UNGODLY ACTS.
- cessationist -Web definitions In Christian theology, Cessationism is the view that the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as speaking in tongues, prophetic utterances and faith healing, ceased being practiced early in Christian Church history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cessationist
CHICO – CESSATIONIST WARS ONLY EXIST WITHIN RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS, DENOMINATIONS OR GROUPS. GOD’S WRITTEN WORD SAYS IN 1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, “He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Philippians 2:2 Fulfil “ ye my joy, that ye be likeminded,” having “ the same love,being of one accord, of one mind.” If the religious community, (all denominations), had the same love,being of one accord, of one mind, there would be “ No need “ for these cessationist wars. Hello!!!
JENNIFER – Over the Thanksgiving break, I was encouraged by some seemingly trivial observations. For example, the Gideon Bible was still in my drawer at the Embassy Suites in downtown Tampa . When I went down for breakfast, a couple sitting next to me held hands and prayed over their meal in the name of Jesus. In nearby St. Petersburg , a nativity scene was displayed in all its glory.
Yes, the culture wars are real. The atheists really are trying to drive Christianity out of the public square, and radical gay activists really are trying to redefine traditional marriage. Yes, there is trouble in the church. High-profile pastors really are falling into sexual immorality or committing suicide. Yes, it’s likely to get darker in the days ahead.
Still, Jesus is Lord.
2. CHICO – CULTURE WARS, AS JENNIFER LECLAIRE DESCRIBES, ARE REAL “ IN THE WORLD,” BUT GOD’S WRITTEN WORD SAYS IN JOHN 15:19 THAT WE ARE NOT OF THIS WORLD, PERIOD!!!John 15:19 “If ye were of the world,” the world would love his own: but because “ye are not of the world,” but I have chosen you “out of the world,” therefore the world hateth you. Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course “ of this world,” according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that “ now worketh in the children of disobedience:” John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is “ not of this world:” if my kingdom “ were of this world,” then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. 1 John 2:15 “ Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.” If “ any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” 1 John 2:16 For “ all that is in the world,” the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is “ not of the Father, but is of the world.” 1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it “ in the world.”
JENNIFER – Peter warns us, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet. 5:8). And to that I say a hearty amen. But nowhere in that verse does it call us to be paranoid or to be afraid of what will happen next. In fact, the Bible tells us repeatedly to “fear not.”
3. CHICO – WHY DOES JENNIFER LECLAIRE INSINUATE IN THE SENTENCE ABOVE, THAT THE READER IS PARANOID OR AFRAID OF WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT???
JENNIFER – Paul warned us not to be ignorant of the devil’s devices (2 Cor. 2:11). Again, I say amen. But the apostle didn’t intend for us to exalt the enemy over Jesus. We need to put on our spiritual armor because we are wrestling against principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph. 6:12). But God always leads us into triumph in Christ (2 Cor. 2:14).
4. CHICO – AGAIN, WHY WOULD JENNIFER LECLAIRE ASSUME THAT THE READER INTENDED TO EXALT THE ENEMY OVER JESUS???
JENNIFER – We need to put on our spiritual armor because we are wrestling against principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph. 6:12 ). But God always leads us into triumph in Christ (2 Cor. 2:14 ).
5. CHICO – AS NEW BABY BELIEVERS IN GOD’S WRITTEN WORD, (JESUS), WE DO NEED TO PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD. THE ARMOUR IS FOR BATTLE AGAINST THE ENEMY, BUT ONCE WE HAVE KNOWN THE TRUTH, (JESUS), WE DON’T NEED THE ARMOUR, ALL WE NEED TO DO IS TO STAND FAST IN THE LIBERTY . THE WORD OF GOD, (JESUS) IS OUR LIBERTY!!! Romans 8:37 Nay, in all these things “ we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall “ make you free.” John 8:36 If the Son therefore “ shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” 1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us “the victory” through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God “ overcometh the world:” and “ this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
JENNIFER – Each and every week, I sound the alarm through this column because we need to be sober and vigilant; we need to be educated about the devil’s devices; we need to be equipped to wrestle against that which is wrestling against us. But this week I am blowing the trumpet in Zion and sounding an alarm in God’s holy mountain (Joel 2:1). I would encourage you to read Joel 2 in its entirety. We need to heed God’s Word in this hour. We need to continue issuing the call to repentance in the church.
6. CHICO – JENNIFER LECLAIRE SAYS, QUOTE: “We need to continue issuing the call to repentance in the church.” ENDQUOTE. DID JENNIFER LECLAIRE FORGET WHAT GOD’S WRITTEN WORD SAYS IN Hebrews 6:4 “ For it is impossible for those “ who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, Hebrews 6:5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, Hebrews 6:6 “ If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance;” seeing “ they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.” Read that again!!! It is impossible….
JENNIFER – Then the Lord will be zealous for His land. Then God will pour His Spirit out upon us so we won’t grow weary in this wrestling match—and we won’t grow paranoid or fearful either.
7. CHICO – JENNIFER LECLAIRE DON’T YOU KNOW THAT GOD HAS ALREADY POURED OUT HIS SPIRIT ON US. IT’S PEOPLE SUCH AS YOURSELF THAT CONFUSES THE BABY BELIEVERS WITH YOUR FALSE TEACHINGS. Acts 2:4 And “they were all filled with the Holy Ghost,” and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and “ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” Acts 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that “ on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.” Acts 4:8 “Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost,” said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and “ they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”
8. CHICO – BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS SUCH AS JENNIFER LECLAIRE. Jude 1:4 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. 1 Timothy 1:7 “Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.” Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, “ ye have need that one teach you again “ which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily “ shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.” Acts 5:38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, “ it will come to nought:” 1 Corinthians 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, “ that come to nought:”
JENNIFER – Spiritual warfare is a reality, but Jesus is still Lord.
