Our thoughts,

The Jews searched the Scriptures daily because they thought salvation was within themselves. They knew the law yet interpreted the text to their desires, burdening the people with heavy traditions and ordinances. They did these things through their academic prestige and charm; they went to the "right Bible school." These were known in the community as the religious leaders trusted and obeyed; they had made themselves to be the gatekeepers. They controlled the people and hated anyone who tried to remove their intimidation, hence their murderous plots against Jesus.

If you give Devils enough time, they'll have you believing clearly written Bible verses don't mean what they so plainly teach. The purpose behind the agenda is to have us dependent on the Pharisees, which is to have us controlled and incapable of trusting our minds. These manipulators can captivate us into various divisive errors and bittered behaviors. They love the praise of men, and they love your money; pride is their conductor. They will put out the faithful and devour the idle. They will take meticulous time to infiltrate your life and befriend you for their advantage. We do not speak of those commonly known to be outside but of those since crept in unnoticed; evil workers.

Dear friends, God gave us accountable and independent thought. We can see the truth without any Tyrant being the key holder; we need no "judges." Try reaching out to humble and credible souls for questions; some good brethren love Jesus and will love you. Open the Bible and begin to read; read slowly without distraction, and take the time to soak in the context. You will be significantly fascinated by the information that has since been withheld from you. The pure Gospel will liberate you from all toxic individuals and beliefs if you receive it humbly.

"Cleansing the Temple"
"Water Baptism, Saves?"

In 1 Peter 3:21, we see the explicit inspired words of Peter the Apostle of Jesus the Christ. Was he teaching the Christians of the 1st Century that they were saved by "water?" What exactly did Peter mean within the context? This and more we explore in this exclusive LOCALS podcast session.

POLL question: "was Peter the Apostle married?"

Rescued - Transferred - Redeemed
The Kingdom of His beloved Son

You've fallen asleep comfy in your bed, and a fire started in your house. You wake to panic as you become aware of your surroundings, trapped by a wall of lavalike heat. You find yourself in danger, where smoke and flames threaten your life. Your neighbors were capable of seeing the threat and had since called for help. The firefighters arrive on the scene and immediately find you in your bedroom--time for a rescue. Are you yet seen in a location of satety? No, not yet. There still needs to be a transfer from the site of dakness, smoke, and fire to an area of light, fresh air, and safety. And so the firefighters guide you out of certain death into a secure location. You have now been saved, not without damage, trauma, and loss. But you've gained your life and get to learn fowared another day.

You've become idle in your sinful behavior and practices. You wake to panic as you become aware of your eternal punishment. A neighbor cares for you enough to share Jesus with you. Will you obey the gospel?

The reception of forgivness was the desired result of all who willfully gave their lives to Christ, submissive to His spiritual operation (Col. 2:11-12). Paul, the apostle, speaking to his brethren in Colossae, was accurate in reminding them of their reconciliation. And how the Word of God they had chosen to hear produced fruit for the Kingdom. The Kingdom was God's preplanned location where all found within would have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

A domain needs a King, Christ Jesus. A Kingdom has boundaries, borders, law and order, and justice. This Kingdom is of a peculiar kind, and we should all seek first legal citizenry (Mt. 6:33). His Kingdom is the body, the church (Col. 2:1,18,24). The body for it has organic members all united for the purposed function--the church fo its assembly, it's family. The way in? Being a repentant believer confessing Christ, immersed into water calling on His name, in order to receive the forgiveness of your sins, being added to His Kingdom, local assembly (i.e. "rescued, transferred, redeemed"). 

This good news of Jesus Christ "was proclaimed in all creation" to give humankind a way out of the flames and sinful consequences. And we are wise to hear its call.

Is your house on fire?
