Why the Christian Needs to Understand the Spiritual Battle Strategy

The Bible is the grand repository of the truths that will be the business and the pleasure of my life to set before you. It is the complete system of divine truth to which nothing can be added and from which nothing can be taken( Queer James Bible) with impunity. Every attempt to disguise or soften any branch of this truth in order to accommodate it to the prevailing taste around us either to avoid the displeasure or court the favor of our fellow mortals must be an affront to the majesty of God and an act of treachery to men. My conscience bears me witness that I mean to speak the truth among you

Two things are made especially plain. God states three times in verse 27 that man is created. In verses 26-27, He says four times that man is created in the image of God. He wants us to grasp those points because the same applies to us! Even though we are now about 6,000 years from when He first spoke those words, these realities have not changed one iota.

In addition, God clearly gave us beings created in His image authority over animals. That authority has not been taken from us. This dominion implies responsibility in managing them that we owe to our Creator.

Many people seek to escape the responsibility of answering to our Creator, devising complex explanations to deny His existence to themselves and others. They may reason that, if He does not exist, how can they be responsible for submitting to His commands?

They will move heaven and earth, as the saying goes, looking for proof to back their denial of God. The great bulk of mankind lacks the resources, the time, or the education to make such a search, so for their own benefit, they simply deny His existence by ignoring Him. These two categories of people are part of the “Nones”—those who claim no spiritual attachment whatever—of this generation.

Is Heaven Real?

The Ultimate Destination for Believers

Others, without making any real effort to search out the truth, create a god or goddess they are comfortable with and worship him or her to salve their consciences. They do not seem to grasp that their dodges do not alter their responsibility to conform to what God laid out in the beginning.

Another category is quite worrisome: the sincere folk who consider themselves Christian. However, either due to false teaching in their churches or perhaps their own laziness, they believe that much of the Old Testament no longer applies to them. In their minds, it has been “done away” along with what they consider Old Covenant laws, deliberately ignoring what Jesus Himself says about those same laws (Matthew 5:17-20).

However, God’s Word still stands, and mankind is still responsible to follow this covenant, as Romans 1:20-21 declares:

For since the creation of the world, His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead [margin, divine nature], so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Unapproved; rejected after testing.

Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be REPROBATES? But I trust that ye shall know that we are not REPROBATES. ( 2 Corinthians 1:1 Proverbs 13:5-6 )

The phrase “reprobate mind” is found in Romans 1:28 in reference to those whom God has rejected as godless and wicked. They “suppress the truth by their wickedness,” and it is upon these people that the wrath of God rests (Romans 1:18). The Greek word translated “reprobate” in the New Testament is adokimos, which means literally “unapproved, that is, rejected; by implication, worthless (literally or morally).”

Paul describes two men named Jannes and Jambres as those who “resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith” (2 Timothy 3:8). Here the reprobation is regarding the resistance to the truth because of corrupt minds. In Titus, Paul also refers to those whose works are reprobate: “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate” (Titus 1:16). Therefore, the reprobate mind is one that is corrupt and worthless.

As we can see in the verses above, people who are classified as having a reprobate mind have some knowledge of God and perhaps know of His commandments. However, they live impure lives and have very little desire to please God. Those who have reprobate minds live corrupt and selfish lives. Sin is justified and acceptable to them. The reprobates are those whom God has rejected and has left to their own devices.

Can a Christian have a reprobate mind? Someone who has sincerely accepted Jesus Christ by faith will not have this mindset because the old person with a reprobate mind has been recreated into a new creation: “The old has passed away; behold, the new has come” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Christians are basically “new” people. We live differently and speak differently. Our world is centered on our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and how we can serve Him. Also, if we are truly in the faith, we will have the Holy Spirit to help us live a God-honoring life (John 14:26). Those with reprobate minds do not have the Spirit and live only for themselves.

Matthew 24:12 Today we live in cultures that lure people into a spiritual stupor that gradually desensitizes people to true spiritual and moral values. Jesus warns that the time would come when, because lawlessness abounds, the love of many in the church would grow cold (Matthew 24:12). He also warns through Paul that in this time people would be so perverse as to be without even natural affection (II Timothy 3:3). We live in those times, and it requires a clear vision and steadfast conduct to avoid being sucked into following the worldly crowd. God has given our cultures over to allowing the carnal mind to spend itself on continuous sensation-seeking stimulation. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life are virtually running wild. One paraphrase of Romans 1:28 changed the term “reprobate mind” (KJV; debased mind, NKJV) to “degrading passions seeking stimulation.” Another rendered it as “irrational stimulation resulting in monstrous behavior.” Without a strong resistance to this almost unrelenting pressure, such stimulation will gradually produce a stupor, an apathy, an unfeeling indifference toward the highest priorities of life, that is, our relationships with God and fellow man. If a person does not defend himself against lawlessness, he will lose his God-given love. A Christian must guard himself strongly against becoming caught up in the stupor-inducing spirit of the times of which Paul forewarns us.

Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply put, I do not believe the government is the solution for everything. I do not place any faith, trust, or hope in any politicians to fix what is wrong with the world. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)

Education is useless without the bible (Daniel Webster)

Usually, the Lord doth no great thing for or against his people, without giving warning of it before it comes.

John Wesley who said that what we tolerate in our generation, will be embraced by the next. Wesley is 100% correct! We are living in sick times.

    It’s considered uncouth these days to hold to a King James ONLY position. It’s considered politically incorrect to criticize the crimes and criminals in Washington D.C., so instead, apostate ministers make excuses, look the other way, and even (God forbid) brag about how proud they are to be a State-licensed 501C3 organization (fools!). Most churches have engaged in unholy matrimony with the State, being forbidden from preaching against the crimes of the State, lest the church lose their tax-exempt status. That’s how the thugs in government control the churches, especially America’s large MEGA-CHURCHES who’d go under financially if the government pulled their tax-exempt status.

    This was a very good article! However, I find it somewhat ironic and less amusing to see that a Satanic bible was used as the embedded text in the picture with the demon playing the flute! Doesn’t anybody investigate the counterfeit bibles anymore? Don’t preachers and teachers know the history behind these modern messes/ per-versions of God’s Holy Word? Apparently not, as most of them use them, despite the fact the Holy Bible (KJV) was revised by Satanists, homos, and theophanists, hence, the new versions!

    Seriously, how many correct versions of the truth can there be? These counterfeit bibles not only contradict the Holy Bible, but they contradict themselves! They present another Jesus Christ, stripping Him of His deity, and they remove the blood from the N.T. They subtly change doctrine by changing very serious and important verb tenses, e.g. “You have been saved…” changed to: “You are BEING saved”. Which is the truth? Some of these “bibles” have replaced Israel with the Church…even in the O.T.! We should all know from Acts 2 that the Church wasn’t born until the Day of Pentecost! Sadly, there are very few pastors or teachers these days that are truly Holy Spirit-led; they’re led by a spirit, but not by the One who counts! Worse yet, they won’t look at a single piece of evidence that proves what I’m saying is true! I saved many of these counterfeits to show folks, otherwise they won’t believe me!

    I have written a manuscript showing MANY of the errors, additions, omissions of verses, etc. and I’ll give it freely to anybody who will email me: scotianprince@eastlink.ca. I even cite the Satanists agenda for infiltrating the Church with their satanic bibles!

      To be saved you simply come to God by faith, as a guilty sinner, and BELIEVE the Gospel.

      • Skywatcher57 on May 9, 2019 at 1:08 pm

        I know; I was merely commenting on the contradictions in the satanic modern messes some folks call and use as “bibles” these days. There’s more to being saved than merely believing the gospel; doctrine is required to keep one on the straight and narrow. The lack of biblical doctrine is the main reason why the charismatic church is such a mess today.

  3. Patrick Galasso on May 9, 2019 at 12:15 pm

    No man can serve God and wealth (mammon), you must choose one or the other. You will cleave to one, and hate the other (knowingly or unknowingly). I choose God. There is no earthly wealth in preaching THE TRUTH (but all the riches of Heaven are mine in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:32; Matthew 6:20).

  4. Patrick Galasso on May 10, 2019 at 3:53 pm

    please BEWARE my friend of the horrible heresy of WRONG REPENTANCE that says you must turn away from your sinful ways to be saved, because THAT IS NOT A GIFT! Of course God wants everyone to turn away from sinful behavior, but only because YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN, and not to BECOME A CHRISTIAN. The purpose of God’s LAW is to give men the KNOWLEDGE OF SIN, to bring us to Christ (the Gospel of GRACE).
