The reason why some of the things you have been reading sounds different is because we have all been feeding on a different gospel. This is not a new doctrine, this is Christ! Our assignment is to point to Christ, to showcase Jesus, to ascribe him all the glory! No man died for us, he did! No man paid our price, he did. He alone is worthy of our adoration and worship!
Anyone who competes with the space is owns is setting himself against God! I desire to spend the rest of my life, living for him! The end of my life was cast, it was death, sure death. He came and rescued me, not to live my life and ambitions, but to also lay down my life to take on his own! Everyday, this is a privilege I enjoy. I studied John 7-12 today… here are thoughts from it.

The acid test of who sent you, is who do you really glorify? Matt 7:16-18. Jesus gloried God! He did not preach his doctrine, he preached God!

He who is of God, hears God’s word, if you can’t stand it, you are not of God! What your listen to, defines which side you are on. John 8:47.

Those who couldn’t see will be given sight, those who are stuck up and think they can see, would be made blind! The poor in spirit will own the Kingdom of Heaven. John 9.
Organized religion doesn’t care if you can’t see, it cares that it was done within the ambits of the letter. The letter truly kills. John 9:34.
