Woke-ism 101
“He (i.e. “Christ”) shall set the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left.”
The left (i.e. liars and murderers) are the creators of “woke-ism.” And they deceivingly define their term as: “alert to injustice in society, especially racism.” - Oxford 
And though that statement would be one faithful Christians could certainly participate in. The term does not describe the agenda. Far from it. Likewise the ANTIFA organization. We should be anti-fascism. But you see therein lies the deception. Those who participate in the ANTIFA agenda are themselves fascist. It’s the pharisee calling the faithful, pharisees. The equivalency of a church invoking the name of Christ on their assembly area void of faithful Christians and teachings as the agenda within. For instance you may have a church calling itself the “church of Christ.” And that we can certainly agree with. However once you step inside you find the “woke-ism” agenda in full bloom. All sorts of disorderly conduct and compromised deviations. They no longer teach the uniqueness of the church. The common salvation. The worship of spirit and truth. And so on. Matter of fact the agenda they hold is very anti-Christ. And so “woke-ism,” one infected by this virus, will become a racist claiming he’s fighting against racism. A disorder of the mind.
“Woke-ism” may be a fairly new title to our culture. But it’s an ancient problem. Even seen and recorded in inspired and secular history. 
Matthew 15:1-14, Acts 18:12-13 (read),
The Pharisees, Scribes, and all their loyalist were “woke.” They thought it virtuous to dishonour their parents. They thought it “woke” to stone the prophets, behead the baptist, crucify the Christ, and martyr the Apostles. The Egyptian Pharaoh was “woke.” The Roman Cesar was “woke.” Woke-ism has been around for a long time. Woke-ism was the infection which made folks journey to the wilderness expecting a reed shaken in the wind. 
When you find yourself evangelizing and exposing evil. And a fellow brother or sister chimes in to rebuke you publicly by saying “just stick to the gospel and stop pushing people away?” They’re infected by the woke left. They are defending sin and attacking their own kind. Symptoms of the infection. The woke pandemic. They need to stop their mouth from spewing words and infecting others, the mask. They need to social distance incase they infect others. And they need to be injected with a dose of Bible truth, the vaccine. And once they are all cured they can once again return to the church, the pulpit, the tasks. 
The “woke-ness” ideology/worldview is birth from the left which makes willful dullards deceivingly believe enforcing their misguided opinions on all who disagree with their mandates and rules, to be evil wicked Neo nazi racists, phobics, and bigots. Un-compliant Conservatives needing to be put down. Canceled. Ostracized. Slandered. Fired. When the truth is, reality, they are the wicked racist. But you see they’ve perverted the narrative. What is good is now evil, and what is evil is now good. They hate individual accountability. They act on mob rules. Submission with force. Screaming the lie until we are bullied into compliance. These of course are liberals. Leftist. Progressives. Marxist. Fascist. Communist. And for most of us in the Western World, they are currently in control of everything around us. From the box of cereal you eat to the walk you take at the park. They are Government. Health care. Eduction. Transportation. Religion. Major corporations. Academic institutions. Media (i.e. cable, social, and streaming). They have been allowed to infiltrate every aspect of our lives. They tell us which words we can speak. Which places we can shop. Which locations we can visit. Which employment we can have. Which music, movies, news, and entertainment we can view. To criticize or become disobedient will result in punishment (i.e. fines, incarceration, etc). And they will not relent until the entire Country runs red with blood, chaos, division, war and ultimately captivity/bondage. They are behind organizations such as ANTIFA and BLM. And Bob Dylan the heathen was right when he said “you may serve the Devil. Or you may serve the Lord, but you’re going to serve somebody.” He got that from the Bible (Rom. 6:15-23). 
Make no mistake, they are the enemy. And they hate us with a passion. Sadly, these have become our family members, neighbours, co-workers, once friends. We love them and pray for them, but we don’t allow them to destroy us. We are authorized to defend ourselves and the land God has blessed us with. 
The “woke-ness” ilk 5 point agenda is very simple to understand. We’ve repeatedly brought them to your attention.
  1. Anti-Christianity 
  2. Anti-life 
  3. Anti-family 
  4. Anti-security/self-defence 
  5. Anti-Country 

In every branch of influence they currently hold, this is the agenda behind their actions. All of it. And they present it to the blind masses, masquerading as angels of light. 
This is the reasoning behind racist deception such as “critical race theory” being brainwashed upon our youth in academic institutions. And it is also the thriving force behind the mishandling of COVID19 and the communist mandates which have absolutely nothing to do with science, medicine, or a virus. You don’t have 12 police officers manhandle, chokehold, physically assault a law abiding citizen because he or she has a mask exemption, and think that has to do with keeping us safe from a virus. If so, you’ve been infected by woke-ism and are now part of the greater problem. This happened because you stopped taking proper precautions. You withdrew yourself from the faithful local congregation where the truth is proclaimed. You withdrew yourself from the Bible. God. And now void of love you’ve welcomed mental disorder, delusional, woke-ism. 
If you think telling our youth that we are nothing but a racist Country and every person who has a lighter shade of skin pigmentation is somehow inherently guilty of racism? You’re infected by woke-ism.
If you think there’s absolutely nothing wrong with politically voting for baby murdering perverts because the other politician is guilty of being a fornicator? You’re infected by woke-ism.
If you sympathize with the LGBTQ steamroller agenda? You’re infected by woke-ism. 
If you think abortion is health care and a women’s choice? You’re infected by woke-ism.
You agree with modern left feminism? You’re infected.
You think Romans 13 teaches us to be democrats submissive to mandates which compromise and violate the doctrine of Christ? You’re infected.
You think guns are the problem, and not the motive of the shooter? You’re infected. 
You hate the freedom we’ve been blessed to enjoy for decades? You’re infected. 
You’re foaming at the mouth with bitter hate. All caught up in your uncontrolled emotions, allowing me to live rent free in your mind, giving a thumbs down to this podcast session? You’re infected. 
You feel the need to call us all sorts of names and persecute us because we speak the truth? You’re infected. 
And perhaps some out there are seeking a remedy from their “woke” infections? There is a cure. I too was once brainwashed by the left. 
There is a remedy. It’s called Repentance. A change of thought, behaviour, practice, language, direction in life. Begin to allow reality a chance to operate on your mind. Open the Bible and begin to read in Matthew. Read Matthew through Acts for staters. Investigate the literature with an honest motive. Believe the truth. And obey the gospel. Remain faithful to Christ. And in turn share the good news. Study the Bible with all who seek. Expose evil. Remain informed and capable of discerning right from wrong. And with time you will heal from woke-ism and the left’s hold on your life. 
“9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. eNeither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor 2homosexuals, nor 3sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were fsome of you. gBut you were washed, but you were 4sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.” - 1 Cor. 6:9-11

FOOLS AMONG US - Wisdom literature has much to say about “fools.”
“FOOL” (“aphron”) - Luke 12:20, 1 Cor. 15:36
Psalm 14:1, - “nabal” - foolish, senseless
senseless, vile, without reason, inconsiderate, unwise, mindless, stupid, ignorant, egotistic, rash, unbelieving, lacking perspective because of being short-sighted, dull, nonsensical, mentally inert, lacking a grip on reality,
Oxford would say regarding the word “fool” - “a person who acts unwisely or imprudently, an idiot.”
Oxford would say regarding the word “incompetent” - “not having or showing the necessary skills to do something successfully.” In this case not being able to be faithful.
Mt. 5:22, 25:2: “MOROS” - moron - “fool” - stupid
Gal. 3:1 - “anoetos” - foolish, thoughtless, not understanding, unmindful, dense, stupid, mindless,
Mt. 5:22, Christ rebuking the motive of the heart. A brother who is unrighteously angry against his brother, to the point of uncontrolled emotional outburst and attack. Driven by unfaithful hate towards a fellow saint. An accuser and gossip. Slanderer. Liar. This perhaps provoked by covetousness, jealousy, the praise of men, selfish desires and lustful endeavours.
Those who belong to their father, the Devil: liar, murderer, deceiver, accuser, provoker of division and anger, bitter, gossip, slanderer, betrayer, self-righteous hypocrite, pharisaical.
Within the fold throughout the history of believers, we’ve seen many become the enemy against their own kind. Practicing foolishness. Most memorable against the Christ we saw Judas. In various letters written by the Apostles we saw such characters as “Diotrephes” the bully, in 3rd John. Hymenaeus and Alexander in 1 Timothy 1.
Christians must not be fools. We must also be able to discern the fools from the wise. So as to withdraw from the fools among us.

“CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD”
We can understand the importance of a “name,” can we? When we recognize earthly illustrations such as one’s birth certificate. Drivers license. Passport. Medicare. Name on the check. Name on the building. Bank. Restaurant. We can also identify one’s societal position of leadership or service, such as General. Senior advisor. Chief board member. Master. Teacher. Doctor. Professor.
There is much significance in a name. Description. Title. Office.
Within a name we can identify one’s character. Fame. Reputation. Cause. And authority (i.e. police officer. Judge. Lawyer. Etc.)
Can we not deliver our thoughts in principle to matters of spiritual importance? Certainly. And so it is for our Lord. He too has a NAME, Jesus Christ. And His people. We also bear His name, Christians. And His church, the body of believers belonging to Christ. His bride. She too bears His name. Paul knew this very well. He identified the churches that belonged to Christ in Romans 16:16. His name must righteously be attached on everything which belongs to Him. And all things He claims ownership by His instruction. Commands.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (i.e. His name. His authority).” - John 14:6
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the NAME (i.e. with the rule. authority. Dominion. And cause) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” - Mt. 28:18-20
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other NAME (i.e. rule, authority, dominion, and cause) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” - Acts 4:12
“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the NAME of the Lord shall be saved.” - Acts 2:21 (Joel 2:32)
By the fulfilment of the Prophets. Birth from the mind of God. Through the agency of Peter and the Apostles. Guided by the outpouring power of the Holy Spirit into all truth. Recipients of the Comforter (John 14). The instruction was delivered upon all in attendance. And all who are a far off (i.e. the Gentiles). On how God commanded we call on His name within this Messianic dispensation of time. The precise instruction was delivered as promised. The accuracy of this redemptive plan was being completed.
All mankind seeking freedom in Christ was now given a command to obey. We must call on His NAME. And believers are told how in Acts 2:38,
“Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the NAME of Jesus Christ (WHY?) for (in order to receive) the remission of sins (forgiveness).” - Acts 2:38
All who called upon the name of the Lord according to the strict conditions proclaimed from the Holy Spirit, on that day, were added to the church Jesus established. The church of Christ. And every single accountable human being from that day to now, until it all ends. Receive forgiveness of sins in the same unique manner (“common salvation” Jude 3, “the power of God” Rom. 1:16).
All who do not call on the name of the Lord according to the Bible. As it is written (1 Cor. 15:1-4). Will perish eternally (2 Thess. 1:8-9). All people who are not faithful members of the church Christ established. Will perish eternally. All who’s name are not found in the Book of Life. Shall be thrown into the lake of fire,
“And if anyone’s NAME was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” - Rev. 20:15
Many religious believers. Members of His church. Invoke His name on their deeds. But their deeds are unlawful. They are not according to His commands. They do not fulfill the law of Christ (Gal. 6:2; 1 Cor. 9:21; Js. 2:12, 1:25). And these souls will face eternal consequence upon His inevitable return (Mt. 7:21-23).
If you understand the importance of His name. And how it is to be honoured and respected. Obeyed according to His Testament/Will/Law. Then, as Paul was told in Acts 22:16,
“…why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the NAME of the Lord.” - Acts 22:16
If this day you seek forgiveness of your sins. Peace. Family. Comfort. Courage. Love. And purpose. You must be immersed into the church that belongs to Christ (1 Cor. 12:13). This is done when we “call upon His name.”

A Gospel Carol
It is common to hear of accounts which reveal individuals becoming recipients of change in their lives because of traumatic occurrences. A series of events which lead one to question our purpose on this earth. The validity of God, the Bible, His church. Heaven & Hell. 
There once lived a witnessed and recorded account of a man. A roman citizen. Who lived in the 1st Century. And this man’s greed for Pharisaical agendas reached far and wide. Deep and treacherous. To be in hearty agreement with putting Christians to death. To persecute the church of our Lord Jesus Christ. Breathing threats and murder against all who followed the gospel Way. And he did so, sincerely. Believing God was pleased with his aggression. This man was feared among the community of believers. His reputation was heard and known. How he ravaged the church and would enter their houses to separate families and bring them to prison. And educated fool snared in the ways of the world
It is no wonder that God chose to intervene both providentially and miraculously in the life of this wicked man. To show him three spirits. 
The Spirit of the Past which would reveal to him his sinful life and all the damage he had done to himself. God. And His people. 
The Spirit of the Present which converted him to Christ. His obedience to the gospel as a repentant believer. Forgiven. Washed free of sins. Saved. 
The Spirit of the Future for his purpose to bear fruits of repentance and become good and productive as a citizen of the kingdom. The church.
ACTS 9 is our designated Scripture for this account. The man in question. Saul of Tarsus who became known as Paul the Apostle. 
3 Spirits (i.e. Christ, Ananias, Holy)
Jesus was the Spirit of the past. Making known to Paul that his life was not right with God. That Paul’s ways were against God and was filled with lawless activities against the church.
Jesus revealed to Paul that he would be met by another Spirit (Ananias). The Spirit of Paul’s present. One which would regain his sight and speak words leading to his salvation. 
Jesus also revealed in this chapter, the Spirit of Paul’s future. The comforter which was promised to all apostles. Leading him into all truth (John 16:13). And how he was a chosen vessel (*instrument) of Christ. To bear the authority of Jesus before the Pagan and Rulers and the Jews. To suffer greatly for the cause of the gospel. 
And this became Paul’s gospel carol. A hymn of hope for a man who was once dying with the world, to now having fought the good fight. Finished the race. Kept the faith (2 Tim. 4:7).
And what of our gospel carol? Will we wake from our new birth (John 3:3, 5), our newness of life (Rom. 6:3-4). To now become productive in the church and make things right? Have we warmly received the words of the Spirit?
The Spirit of the Past showing us our sinful life and all the damage we’ve done to ourselves. God. And His people? 
The Spirit of the Present converting us to Christ. Our obedience to His gospel as repentant believers. Forgiven. Saved? 
The Spirit of the Future purposed to bear fruits of repentance and become good and productive as citizens of His kingdom. His church. The body of Christ? (Col. 1:18) 
If you’ve heard the word of His Spirit this day. Will you awake from your sleep a changed person? Are you willing to obey the gospel and receive Jesus as your Lord and Master?

TO MARRY, OR NOT TO MARRY?
The topic of MDR (i.e. marriage/divorce/remarriage) remains one of the most controversial in Christianity. So much so merely quoting the verse could immediately make one recipient of persecution. It has been known to "fire" preachers. Break up, families. "Step down," elders. Cause "church-splits." All sorts of chaos and division. Therefore, a great number of believers will compromise their faith when it comes to such discussion and study. 
It can be understood why so many have an emotional investment reluctant to change for what is right. There is certainly a temptation to trust our feelings instead of Christ. When children, and many years of love toward another, are involved. The thought of separation threatens our way of life. Our perceived comforts. Deep-rooted in the family. And so, it is necessary to practice seasoned compassion when grace is administered to cure the soul of this damnable sin. The sin of adultery. 
Marriage, for a brief moment in our western world. Was for the most part respected and honored publicly. A blessing to warmly find contentment on this earth. And it served us well for the years we lived by its principle. Sadly how quick we lose focus. An untoward shift has since been allowed to corrupt this divine institution. We now demonize the idea of male and female becoming husband and wife "till death do us part." We scoff at the thought of faithfulness. And instead of repentance, it seems we embrace further descent into perverted madness. Nonetheless, the immovable word of God endures the test of time and prevails through mankind's attempts to deviate. 
Here is the very practical "matter of fact" teaching Christ has brought to our remembrance for the ages. Authorized by His name (Mt. 28:18).
Marriage was created at the beginning of time (Mt. 19:4). It is GOD who instituted union between two genders, male and female (Gen. 2:24). Lawfully, husband and wife. Organically harmonious. Biologically supportive. Naturally reciprocal. This is why we are not authorized to separate what "God has joined together" (Mt. 19:6). 
"Whosoever." Whether a believer or non-believer. No matter one's skin color. Language. Or geographical location. All who are accountable to God are accountable to His institution.
If any "divorces" (i.e. release. Send away. Depart from. Annul an existing bond) his or her spouse (Mk. 10:12). For any other reason than the sole exception to the law, "porneia" (i.e. physical sexual fornication with another other than your spouse). To therefore marry "another." Is guilty of adultery. And "whoso marrieth" the divorced wife is also guilty of adultery. 
The husband or wife who has been divorced for any other reason than "porneia." Has been made a "eunuch" (Mt. 19:12). He or she can never remarry (Luke 16:18). This is the law of Christ proclaimed from His gospel of the kingdom (Mt. 4:23). Applicable even to the heathen (Luke 3:19). And though one might be inclined to think it "unfair." One must remember that our free-will decision to marry the person came with eternal consequences. It's not "God's fault." It's the fornicator, adulterer's fault. So once again a sober reminder that we are to pay close attention to the person we chose to be within marriage. A faithful Christian is always the ideal "catch."
This doctrine will never change. It is unequivocal. Incontrovertible. No matter how strenuous critics try to twist simple and clear teaching. No matter how sorrowful a fellow saint may be in dealing with son or daughter. Congregation dealing with elder or deacon. The truth is the truth. And the truth is reality. 
No other verse in the Bible will contradict Matthew 19:9. No feeble experiment will suffice. No water can ever forgive an unrepentant sin. 
Be wise, friends. Learn to discern. This is a salvation issue. 
If you have any concerns. Questions. Or simply wish to discuss this topic further. Please don't hesitate to contact us. 
Thank you.
Your servant,
SM

SERMON SUNDAY
08/11/2020
TITLE: OBEY - ACTION - WOR
TEXT: 1 Peter 1:1-25
CONTEXT: Nero is falsely accusing and executing Christians. Many Christians are losing heart. Many are turning against God and their fellow saints. Cure? Obey, remain active, produce work. 
ILLUSTRATION: trials, temptation, and persecution causes the separation of those who are faithful from those who are not (Mt. 25:33). It continues to test our priority and loyalty (Mt. 6:33). Those who act on the word of Christ will not fall. Those who don’t act on His word, will (Mt. 7:24-27). 
BODY:
OBEY INCORRUPTIBLE (will never perish) SALVATION - CREATE UNDEFILED (clean) ACTION - PRODUCE UNFADING (timeless) WORK. 
This accomplished by the Grace of God in our reception of His Son’s freely given gospel. Through our obedience, action, and work of faith (James 2).
This understanding comes through THE WORD - “thy word is truth” - John 17:17 - (1:23, 2:2). It sets us “free” - John 8:31-32
COMMANDING US TO A NEW BIRTH - JOHN 3:3, 5 “OUT OF WATER (BAPTISM) AND THE SPIRIT (WORDS PREACHED AND OBEYED)” NEWNESS OF LIFE (ROM. 6:3-4).
CONCLUSION: humble to obedience - courage in action - dedication to the work. Perseverance (don’t give up). Don’t forsake the assembly. Evangelize. Practice benevolence. Grow in the word of your new birth. 
INVITATION: H.B.R.C.B.D

Holy Father. Great "I AM." Most Powerful Creator. God of the 66 Books. He who governs the ages through the might of His will. The Intelligent Devine Design Who's breathe gave us life. To you, most heavenly strength belong. We thank you our Lord. Eternal existence. The forevermore who's hand formed the mountains and galaxies. The knowledge that surpasses all understanding. We recognize your comfort in allowing us a moment in your presence. That you may hear the prayer of your people before the formation of Adam and Eve. We who are now purchased by the blood of your Son. Blessed and beloved by your grace. Your wisdom and instruction guide our path. Your love teaches us discernment. Praise to you oh merciful and living God. Without you, we fail. Without you, we have no purpose, no hope of salvation. Your doctrine moves our actions. Glory to your name and authority. You who are most faithful. To our Savior and King, your Son. And for the Words of your Spirit. Everlasting to Everlasting. Amen.
Great God of Old. As you see fit may it be done. We humble ourselves to an urging request. Father of our foundation. We beg you. Please give us continued provision and security. Nourishment, shelter, and clothing. Defense. Freedom to live another hour as citizens of your Kingdom. Grant us talents for the further growth of your gospel. Give us the opportunity to share the Messiah in peace. Keep us in unity. Agape. Forgiveness. Family. And joy. Allow us repentance and perseverance.
Great Father of righteous judgment. We need your armor and courage this moment. So that the corrupt be exposed and brought to an honorable court. Those who high-handedly remain rebellious in their bloodlust toward our innocent. Who prey and pervert our children. Who invite and encourage foreign barbaric gods into our Nation. Who govern policies hostile to our Master Jesus Christ, your Son. Who make it difficult for many of our fellow saints to enter your rest. For many Christians have fallen victim to their deceit. Yes, our Father. Our enemies we pray for. That they repent or be removed.
Your Testament live within our minds to be productive in your sight. We trust in you who know all tomorrow. May we be pleasing to your nature. Again we praise you most powerful and living God. Make us ready for the Day of your return. Create us as servants to your Son and His church. Submissive and always learning. Amen.

ADDEDSOULS e.004
“All that will live godly
Persecution is a part of life for any faithful saint. And we’ve learned that through our Master Jesus Christ. We’ve learned that they’ve stoned the prophets. Beheaded the Baptist. Crucified the Christ. And martyred the Apostles. 
Christ spoke the truth (John 17:17). He rebuked and demanded repentance from believers. Jews. Those who should have recognized Him from the Scriptures and warmly embraced Him. Yet they rejected Him and He allowed them to bring Him to a Roman cross: 
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!” - Mt. 23:37
This pattern we must follow. Telling believers they are lost. Will always make us the recipients of persecution. 
Paul was no different. “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Tim. 3:12).
And here are three recorded cases to prove the point:
  1. Diotrephes (3 John 9-10)

9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
10 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church
Diotrephes loves the “preeminence” (i.e. “loves to first”). 
- “Woe to you Pharisees! For you love the best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces.” - Luke 11:43
- “he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.” - Luke 22:26
Diotrephes is guilty of practicing nonsensical gossip, idle talk, and empty charges and accusations against the faithful. He’s a bully. 
Diotrephes suppresses (i.e. “forcibly puts an end to”) Bible teaching that goes against what he wants the Scriptures to say. So not only does he reject receiving an inspired man (i.e. Paul, a walking Bible). He also rejects any in the church that would receive the Bible. And to further his delinquency he removes any who would receive the Bible. 
Diotrephes sadly represents many Christians today. And any eldership taking the side of the “Diotrephes” in the church, over the faithful, will be guilty on the Day of judgment. Only a stiff stubborn neck would remain in his pride instead of repenting. 
2. Hymenaeus & Alexander (1 Tim. 1:19-20)
19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
These Christians have since put away “faith and a good conscience.” Drifted away from the grace of God in order to find themselves at shore against the rock in a storm where their boat (i.e. “faith”) was crushed into pieces.
These Christians were delivered to Satan so that they might be pierced into guilt producing fruits of repentance. Returning to God and His local congregation. No longer practicing evil, abusive, and slanderous speech against God and His church. 
3. Phygellus and Hermogenes (2 Tim. 1:15)
“This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.” 
Take courage fellow Christians. Christ has told us,
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Matthew 5:10-12

The betrayer felt remorse but does not produce fruits of repentance.

When Paul exposed the wickedness of the Gentiles. Jews gave a hearty "amen!" When Paul exposed the wickedness of the Jews? They wanted to murder him. Why?
When faithful Christians expose the wickedness of unbelievers. Believers give a hearty "amen!" Not so much when the wickedness of believers is exposed. Why? For the same reason Jews had against prophets, John the immerser, Christ, and His apostles. 
They don't trust the Scriptures as a Book they can know. They refuse to repent from fornication. Adultery. Divorce. Gossip. Division. Unfruitful works of darkness. Self-righteous hypocrisy. Vain and idle endeavors. Substance abuse. Fellowship with the world. Cowardice. Strange worship. They pervert God's grace into a license to sin. And such likeness. 
When you tell Christians that most of them are spiritual lost, since drifted away from the truth we can know? Their hate will speak and practice all manners of persecution towards you. In whispers, and public outcry. They'll want to remove your online influence. Sow discord. Slander you with vilifying titles such as "legalist, Pharisee, alt-right, un-loving, un-Christ-like, cultish," and so on. They err not knowing the inspired text. If they can't have you murdered they'll run you out of town. 
This truth was very difficult for me to accept within my spiritual youth. Yet it remains and I've humbled myself to the fact. And so now I've become more effective in discernment. All thanks to His mercy and forgiveness.

My thoughts,
Most unbelievers listening to our sermons, studies, and podcasts? Don't do so because we tell them "Jesus loves you." We indeed proclaim such. But they already know that. They listen because the Scriptures tell them they're currently eternally lost. Why else? 
Friends, pay attention. Christians can't compete with denominations. No compromise will suffice. They have the "bigger" everything. But what they lack? Is what gives us the upper hand. The truth. 
Seekers (Mt. 6:33) want the truth. It is what converted me. I already knew Jesus loved me. I needed to know I was rebellious and lost. That's what "triggered" me into opening my heart to reality. And further the purpose we have in Christ to now in turn tell them the truth. 
Dear listeners. Take your loved ones out of false Churches and beliefs. Take them away from the pain of this sinful life. Bring them to the church Jesus built back in Jerusalem. It can be spiritually found right here in the city of Moncton N.B. Canada. Riverview. The Riverview church of Christ. 
God bless.
Your servant,
SM

My thoughts,
"Unto what is the kingdom of God like?"  
The kingdom of heaven is the church that belongs to Jesus. It was birth from the mind of God. Prophesied by His prophets of Old. Promised by Christ. Purchased by His blood. And must be practiced by our faith.
His church. Kingdom. Assembly. Congregation. Called out ones. Body of believers. Where the saved are gathered. Where the obedient are added. Was built in Jerusalem during the reign of the Roman empire. On the day of Pentecost recorded in Acts 1 - 2. With great outpouring power from the Holy Spirit. Upon chosen vessels (i.e. the apostles). To proclaim inspired truth regarding the Messiah. Fulfilling the prophets quoted. 
On that day the "keys" (i.e. conditions) were delivered to all accountable souls listening. So as to obey and qualify for the forgiveness of sins. Being immersed. Plunged. Dipped. Submerged. Baptizo. In water, as repentant believers. Confessing the Lord as their King and ruler. Buried with Him. Born out of water and the Spirit. Clothed. Operated. Calling on His name. 
This is the unique facts of Scriptural authority and reality. God breathed literature. The perfect law of liberty. The 66 Books of the Holy Bible. Every single soul teaching otherwise, is lying to us. 
Please come learn with us. We CANNOT obtain heaven within the false doctrines of men. We must open our spiritual eyes. Count the cost. Deny ourselves and every carnal thing we emotionally invest in. For the purpose of life and the reception of His grace far exceeds any natural realm. 
The Riverview church of Christ is the 1st-century church you can read of in the Bible. If you are in this Province. In this city. This area. "Seek ye first" (Mt. 6:33).
Your servant,
SM

CALLED - CHOSEN - FAITHFUL: Victory in Christ 
In this age (2020 ff) many things seem uncertain. Our current government is hostile towards Christians. We are considered “terrorists.” Guilty of “hate speech” and breaking “community standards.” There are cases of fines and prison for those who dare expose wickedness in our Country. And if things continue to “progress” in a communist manner. They will drag us out and murder us once again. Riot. Division. Herd mentality and governing. Sorrow for the church. Yet there is always hope. Even on the brink of National chaos. There is hope. We need not fear as the world fears. We need not be deceived as the world is deceived. We can conquer any situation. History reveals that faithful Christians always find themselves victorious in Christ Jesus. 
During the 1st Century John received a revelation from Christ Jesus (Rev. 1:1-3). Regarding things to soon happen in their generation. This Revelation was delivered to the saints in the kingdom, the churches of Christ (Rom. 16:16). To remain faithful till the end. For the threat of the Roman Empire (and all her participants) was about to wage war on them. 
“Babylon,” long before its arrival on earth. Was prophesied by Isaias, that it would one day fall along “with the graven images of her gods” (Isa. 21:9). This same “Babylon,” symbolic of Rome “the great city” (Rev. 16:19) and all “the waters” (17:15) which symbolically represent her constituents (i.e. the apostate members of the church Paul the apostle had once prophesied coming - 1 Tim. 4:1ff). “These will wage war” against Christ and His obedient faithful. Throwing them into prison and testing them, even bringing them to death (2:10). And all this allowed by God’s providence which brought fulfillment of the Scriptures (17:17), the “perfect law of liberty” (James 1:25, 1 Cor. 13:10) . The faithful, called and chosen by God. Won the victory in Christ Jesus over His enemies. And we now this day, a “holy nation” (1 Pt. 2:9). Can receive this revelation and learn from it. Practice its principles. Apply its wisdom into our lives. 
With this reality we focus on the called, chosen by God, faithful till the end. Victorious in Christ Jesus. These had to endure every hostile element of the Roman Empire. Which indeed in the 1st Century was the known world. Persecution. Sickness. Loss of life. The Roman influence had even captured many saints and turned them into false teachers. Wolves in sheep’s clothing. Those who would conspire with Romans to create political power and oppression upon the faithful. Very tempting to compromise one’s faith to save his or her own life. 
Yet even through all they had to persevere, a remnant remained focused on the goal. The afterlife with God forever. Away from death and disease. Persecution and pain. The encouragement that the wicked would pay (“wages of death” - Rom. 6:23) for their evil deeds (2 Thess. 1:8-9). 
How? 
They received the accurate gospel call and accepted it. Embraced it. Lived by it. 
They recognized the chosen location for all who received the gospel and obeyed it, the kingdom of Heaven. The church (Mt. 16:18-19). 
And once ADDED to the congregation of Jesus Christ, they remained faithful in all things (i.e. the plan of salvation, the pattern of worship, the persistence of fellowship. Evangelizing. Practicing benevolence. Exposing evil. Teaching and preaching rightly handled Scripture. Never forsaking the assembly. Thinking right, living right, giving right). And this faith kept them alive in Christ. Conquering “Babylon,” Rome and all saints who had since fallen prey to her harlotry. 
Revelation 17:14
“These shall make war with the Lamb (i.e. the Roman Empire, Jewish leaders, and fallen saints), and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords (i.e. there is no higher office of respect and honour than Christ), and King of kings (i.e. there is no greater ruler, authority): and they (Christians) that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”
CALLED:
“Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.” - 2 Thess. 2:14
To all who receive the gospel of Christ and live by its Testament law of grace. 
John 3:16 - Acts 4:12 - 1 Cor. 15:1-4 - Mk. 16:16
CHOSEN:
“just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,” - Eph. 1:4
The location of the saved is the body of Christ, His church (Eph. 1:22-23). 
And so they were called into the location where faithfulness had to be practiced. 
FAITHFUL:
In every test, trial, and temptation allowed against Job. Pain and sorrow. He “did not sin or charge God with wrong” - Job 1:22. Job was faithful. 
Those who “contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.” - Jude 3
We must remain faithful in the plan of salvation, the pattern of worship, the persistence of fellowship. Evangelizing. Practicing benevolence. Exposing evil. Teaching and preaching rightly handled Scripture. Never forsaking the assembly. Thinking right, living right, and giving right.
