WHY BELIEVING YOU MUST KEEP THE LAW MEANS YOU ARE SHUT UP FROM A SAVING FAITH- Gal.3:23-26

By Edward O’Hara , As I have said many times before. If you are defining sin by what the law says you are in the wrong covenant. The reason this is so very important for we who profess to believe in Jesus is that being in the wrong covenant keeps us from knowing Him and having the eternal life that is only made possible by knowing Him. This is why Paul said in Gal.3:23 while Israel was under the law they were “shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.” A faith that Paul says in Rom.10:17 “comes by hearing. And hearing by the word of God.” To show that faith for eternal life is only found in the New Covenant. And could not be found in the Old. Which is why we see that those in the…

Edward O’Hara: WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING; QUESTIONS WE MUST ASK- 2Cor.5:19

By Edward O’Hara, The idea of questioning long held political and religious beliefs is happening now more than at any other time in history. The question is, is this a good method to use for finding truth? My answer to that is, what other way is there? Not in a hateful or rebellious way. But, in an inquiring way. Because we have to question things to know whether they are true. Especially the things we may have come to believe are true before we came to trust in Jesus. This is why Paul says we need to renew our minds in Rom.12:1,2. And in this endeavor I have found the Bible to be 100% accurate 100% of the time. In all areas of study, everything the Bible says has so far for me proven itself to be absolutely and unequivocally…

Edward O’Hara, THE BLESSED HOPE- PEACE AND SAFETY… THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION!

Edward O’Hara… Is the whole world experiencing peace and safety? Or is there turmoil and insecurity? No doubt there is the latter. But, Paul gives us great hope in these last days. He gives instruction in 1Thes.5:3 that says the world will be saying peace and safety just before sudden destruction. So what is really going on?  Jesus said in Mt.24:37 that as it was in the days of Noah so it shall be at the time of the coming of the Son of man. Jesus also made a similar statement regarding the days of Lot in Luke17:28. This means that what happened then will happen at the time just before Jesus’ revealing. The Apocalypse. What do we see from the Bible that happened then that Jesus is telling us in Mt.24 will happen just before His return?  We read that…

ARE YOU A CHILD OF GOD? OR STILL ONLY A CHILD OF ADAM?

Are you a living soul? Or are you a living spirit? Do you still have only old wine in the old wine bottle? Or new wine? Are all men children of God from conception? Was Adam a child of God when he was made? Is it a spiritual birth that brings a man into being? Was it even a spiritual birth that brought Adam into being? Have you ever thought to even ask these questions? Of course, the answer to these questions is a resounding NO!! Because Adam was natural, only flesh and blood, when he was made. As are all men born since Adam was made. This is why Adam could not have been a child of God when God made him. Because his was not a spiritual birth when he was made. Just as it is not a spiritual…

HOW CAN THE TRUTH SET YOU FREE…

IF YOU WON’T BELIEVE HIM?  WHAT if you discovered that everything you have been taught about God, Jesus, and the atonement is a lie?  What if what you were taught to believe is Biblically true is actually based on pagan theology and has no basis in Biblical truth? Would you turn from the lie to the truth?  What if like muslims or Hindus or any other false religion where they grow up being taught a certain belief system is true, you too have been taught something that simply wasn’t true for so long, that this conditioning has made it nearly impossible for you to even consider what can be proven to be actually true?  What if what you think you know to be true about God was actually handed down through the ages to you from a council at Carthage that was held over 300…

Only by Free Will and Humility Can We Be Abraham’s Children

By Edward O’Hara In John 8 Jesus tells the Pharisees who were the religious leaders of that day, “I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.” To which they answered Jesus saying “We have Abraham as our father”. And Jesus answered them saying, “If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.” Now an important question to ask here is, to what works was Jesus referring? Works of the law which are the works of the flesh? Or the work of believing in Him that just 2 chapters earlier when teaching these same people Jesus told them they must do the work of God?  This was also what Jesus was referring to in John 8 when He again said “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and…

WHY GOD MADE ABRAHAM, NOT MOSES, THE “FATHER OF MANY NATIONS”- PT.2

In Rom.4 we read that “Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.” These words from the apostle Paul reveal why God said Abraham, and not Moses, would be the “father of many nations”. It is so that it would by faith, and not by works, that the promise of eternal life is received. A faith that joins men to God by love because Paul said in Gal.5:6 that this kind of faith only works by love. Apart from this kind of faith there is no eternal life.   Moses trusted the Father as Abraham had. But, his calling was different because through him God would bring the imputation of sin for the Israelites because it was determined by God that He would bring the Messiah through their bloodline. This is why they alone were the recipients…

THE “BORG” WILL ASSIMILATE YOU IF YOU LET THEM, The Borg Are Cybernetic Organisms Linked in a Hive Mind Called “The

Collective”… By Edward O’Hara… If you’ve never seen Star Trek you probably don’t know who the Borg are. The Borg are an alien group that appear as recurring antagonists on Star Trek. The Borg are cybernetic organisms linked in a hive mind called “the Collective”. The Borg co-opt the technology and knowledge of other alien species to the Collective through the process of “assimilation”: forcibly transforming individual beings into “drones” by injecting nanoprobes into their bodies and surgically augmenting them with cybernetic components. The Borg’s ultimate goal is “achieving perfection”… You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile- The Borg This “Borg collective” is easily seen today by their “facial apparel” and it’s “virtue signaling”. But, is more difficult to see when trying to find who those are that truly have believed in Jesus. Because even though some of them may wear the…

JESUS’ SACRIFICE FOR SIN- IS IT ONCE FOR ALL? OR AT LEAST ONCE DAILY

By Edward O’Hara  as so many falsely teach? Jesus was the final once for all sacrifice. So says Heb.10:10. And this sacrifice was for the whole world. So says John3:16.   Now since His was the final once for all sacrifice, why is it that so many believe and teach that they need to return over and over and over again to beg forgiveness as if His sacrifice needs to be done over and over again as Israel did under the law? Don’t they believe Jesus’ sacrifice was greater than that of bulls and goats? Don’t they believe it was the once for all sacrifice for sins? “Once” meaning there is no more need to get forgiveness for sin because the once for all sin sacrifice has “taken away” the covenant that caused sins to be imputed. This is not to say…

HOW YOU DEFINE SIN AND RIGHTEOUSNESS SHOWS WHICH COVENANT YOUR THINKING IS IN

By Edward O’Hara First, I want to wish everyone a happy resurrection day! Our Lord is risen! He is alive! He is risen indeed! And because He has risen we who have believed in Him and His resurrection have eternal life. Because we are no longer just flesh and blood mortal beings. We are spiritual beings who inherit a spiritual kingdom. Hallelujah! In today’s message I want to show how our thinking must change in order that we understand and know the God who made us and His deliverance from death to life. After all, Paul taught that we are to renew our minds in Rom.12:2. And Isaiah said in Is.55:8 that God’s thoughts are not our thoughts. And neither are God’s ways our ways. So changing the way we think is a priority if we are to know Him…
