Our thoughts,

If we are honest, we will admit that many of us have lacked the insight necessary to recognize spiritual threats taking preeminence; we've become dull of the Devil and how he operates as a wolf in sheep's clothing, allowing ourselves to be vulnerable to sinister attacks. We are undoubtedly quick and feasible to see when it comes to politicians or Hollywood types, which is helpful indeed, but are we wise to receive the knowledge of the Scriptures concerning shepherding the flock against the wicked behind the pulpit? The warnings of Matthew 7 remain a large themed portion of the Scriptures, correct? "Ravenous wolves" are a valid and actual menace functioning at this hour, are they not?

Take it to heart, dear friends. Diotrephese is a professional liar, yet despite his most cunning deceit and stellar performance, the humble can discern his pride, for his hypocrisy exposes his corrupt ambition, control, and greed. He is double-tongued and contradicts himself constantly. He is a sociopath driven to destroy marriages, families, churches, and friendships. He is an arrogant and egotistical brute. He is loyal to his paternal ancestry (Jn. 8:44), and he will condemn you if you dare to challenge his resume. He has firmly convinced himself that hatred is love, unrighteousness is correct, and the truth of the Bible is but a tool for his perverted arsenal. He scoffs at the growing number of victims he leaves on his trail. He is a false witness who pours out slander and stirs up conflict in the community. He is a thief, a robber, a gossip and whisperer, a betrayer, a tyrannical scourge, and a heavy-handed despot, yet he will accuse the faithful of being such. He puts on an act for visitors; he portrays himself with a particular masquerade on social media, and he controls the narrative. He is a malignant narcissist, a dark empath, and a toxic abuser, yet he will blame the faithful for such. He is a master gaslighter and projects with the whim of his wit. He claims superior scholarship over any opposition. He is a phycological abuser, well furnished in his craft. He unjustly accuses the faithful with malicious words. He is divisive, with a cold-hearted mind void of any genuine charity. And he will have the weak fully convinced he is a "bastion of the gospel," a "steadfast defender of the faith" worthy of praise. He plays a dirge, making himself the victim, and his mice dance to the sound of his gong. He will take over and leave you in deep confused sorrow. He eagerly creates all kinds of defamation to diminish faithful integrity in Christ; he sins against God, His church, and His people, fully convinced in his own folly to be a "Christ-like laborer" who is never wrong in his own thought and can never be refuted by mere mortals. He is everything the New Testament Bible rebukes.

Please pay close attention and learn to discern, for Diotrephic vessels must be avoided at all costs, do not engage them nor allow them a platform, for they infiltrate, manipulate, and dominate; they dismantle, deplete, discourage, and divide, always having another lie for any truth exposing their nefarious agenda. Christ has come to set us free from such Pharisaical brood, to release us from the bondage of fear and anxiety they burden upon the innocent.

The coming Day of our Lord will reveal the truth, as Christ Jesus is our Witness, and justice will be had for all who have been blessed with wisdom from sorrow at the hands of devils crept in unnoticed. Till then, we are thankful to focus on our King and the love of His faithful family. We are at peace, tranquility, safety, unity, and growth. Our God and His grace liberate us, gives us strength, and a purpose to life in His good pleasure; what an honor and privilege to have hope in being set free from sin and all its conduits.

Dear friends, never shackle yourself into believing there is no way out; there is a network of brethren who understand and will comfort you; today is your day of freedom.

"Finally, brethren, rejoice, be made complete, be comforted, be like-minded, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you." - Paul.

Your servant,
SM

"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.

"POLITICS"

Our p0latiks in a quick and simple Five Point Solution;

As Faithful Christians Governed by the Words of the Holy Spirit,

WE ARE...

1. Pro-Christ: All public sectors of service, power, influence, and leadership (i.e., Government, Corporation, Academics, Entertainment, and Media) should favour the upright moral policy found within the doctrine of Christ.

2. Pro-Life: from conception to natural death, we must protect the sovereignty of human existence from child to senior at all costs.

3. Pro-family, one M and one F, H&W, with prayerfully the blessing of children, must be protected, endorsed, encouraged, and kept secure at all costs.

4. Pro-SD: to honour the God-given liberty and freedom to secure one's life, household, and property in all decency and just conduct.

5. Pro-law: justice, order, border, and National safety to live life peacefully for the cause of Christ and the greater good of His kingdom.

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?

Ref. Colossians 2:13-24

Your servant,
