2Th 2:9-12 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

There are various religions, religious groups, and philosophies that seek doctrine, guidance, information or help from ghosts, spirits, celestial beings, or dead people. This spiritual help that they offer us is a trick of the Devil and his demons so that we do not seek the direction of God. Continue reading

This tract explains why Christians should give their tithes to the Lord. These tithes should be their first priority.




Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Mal. 3:8-9

Romans 2:6 Who (God) will render to every man according to his deeds:

__________________

Food, exercise, and health many times decide if one has a good life or problems. Equally a good church decides if we have a good spiritual life or no. Without a good church, spiritual problems will torture the Christian and leave him without the means to resolve his problems, leave him with a weakened spiritual life, and with sadness without end and without remedy. For the Christian that finds a good church, all of this is just the opposite. The church ministers to his needs, and causes spiritual welfare in his life. It is a pleasure to serve God there, and to grow and have a relationship with the family God supporting you there. Find a good church! Continue reading

Jer 10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen…

Coming to the end of the year, many people begin to think about Christmas. There are many traditions around Christmas, and it is important that we analyze all these traditions and customs in the light of the Bible so we do blindly follow ignorant people into pagan traditions.

pc34 Divine use of Sickness

The Divine Use of Sickness

By David Cox

[PC34 ]v1 ©2012 www.coxtracts.com
This tract can be freely reproduced.

This tract about the divine use of sickness explains how God works with sickness to remind man of his limited time on earth, the consequences of sin, etc.

Job 13:15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.

There is an attitude within much of Christianity that sickness in any form is bad, and God does not have anything to do with it. For these Christians, they ask God to take the sickness away, and sometimes (as though it was their right to be health) that they demand God to remove their sickness. The reality of life is that they continue ill, and many have a crisis of faith over this. For them, God is impotent, or God does not love them. In other words, their confidence, faith, and love of God depend on God always sending them good things. But this is not how the Bible indicates life is. God uses calamity and sickness for His own purposes and we have to understand this (and accept it).

pc01 Should a Christian celebrate Halloween?

Should a Christian celebrate Halloween  (Day of the Dead)?

“Halloween was originally a festival of fire, dead, and the powers of darkness” – Encyclopedia of Man, Myth, and Magic” by Richard Cavendish

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Matthew 18:6

If Halloween is concentrated in concepts dealing with darkness, and we promote it to our children, participating in something that is highly connected with the forces of evil, don’t we fall under the condemnation of Matthew 18:6, causing them to trip up in their spiritual life by our foolishness? Halloween is no innocent entertainment, but has customs and roots in Satanism and pagan religions.

How to know  if you are Dead? (spiritual life)

What a strange topic! Why or in what case would this question be valid? Very simply this is a question that every person should reflect on, and see if truthfully you are to be considered spiritually alive or not. There are many walking around in the world thinking that they are saved and that they are Christians when actually according to the Bible, they are totally dead in the spirit, unsaved. While so many presume to be spiritually alive, it is very important to understand that according to the Bible, they are dead. Continue reading

Is it correct when women preach? (Teach, speak, or lead)

Acts 2:17 I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flash, and your sons and daughters shall prophesy… 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in tose days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.

(Many use this verse as the basis for women preaching, but the verse says nothing about to whom they will minister, to mixed groups or groups of only women.)

The Assemblies of God have 4,000 ordained and licensed women. The United Methodist Church began ordaining women in 1954, and today has 4,743. The Presbyterian Church (USA) has 2,419 leaders. In 1979 this church made it a requirement of their congregations to ordain women to these leadership positions over the church. Moreover they force the disqualification of any minister among them that opposes the ordination of women. The United Church of Christ has 1803 female leaders. Women today compose a third of seminaries students across the board, and in Harvard and Yale seminaries they are half of the students.

( This data is for groups in the United Status. In all the United Status, women compose about 8% of all in the ministry.) Continue reading
