Extra Thoughts

These essays will be more like a random blog post of thoughts, that might not be–at the time–meant for a book, but might later on.

Recent Extra Thoughts.

  • The More Wishes, the More the Kingdom of God Grows - The more answered wishes, the more joy grows in His disciples (Jesus thinks this is important).
  • I HAVE HEARD YOUR PRAYER: Faith is Certainty - Faith is not a wishful hope of possible outcomes; rather, faith is the absolute certainty of a particular outcome promised by God.
  • NO FEAR, ONLY FAITH & DELIVERANCE - I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalms 34:4 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear. 1 John 4:18 In the above two verses, we see a clear theme. John says God’s love delivers us from the wrath of God so that […]
  • Do Not Accept the Circumstances God has Ordain for You - Jesus commands us to not stop praying until God gives us what we want, and what we want is the circumstance God ordained to vanish.  
  • Cut From The Same Rock - “Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and who seek the Lord: Look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn; look to Abraham, your father, and to Sarah, who gave you birth. When I called him he was only one man, and I blessed him […]
  • A Miracle is an End to Itself - One small miracle by a Charismatic by faith is more valuable than 1000 Reformed sermons.
  • One on One Ministry with Jesus - I have been sick the last week. When I had the mental strength, I would ask for healing and praise God for helping me. However, I did not receive the instant healing I was asking for and didn’t know what was hindering it. Then today I felt well enough to walk and pray in tongues. […]
  • Word Of Faith vs God Was Never There - Because they cannot understand how a sinner like themselves is able to have faith to raise the dead, their focus is thus on other men, and how these other men cannot do it either. God was never in the picture. God was never there.
  • Faith Testifies about a Certain Attribute of God - Why does Hebrews focus on faith rather than some other ethic that God is so pleased with and turns humans into everlasting heroes, whom the world was not worthy to have known. There are a few reasons, but I want to focus on one aspect. Faith testifies about a certain attribute of God, that God […]
  • If You have Faith, You have no Wait - People are waiting on God, however, at the same time God is waiting on them.
  • Today, God Rewards Faith with What? - “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God existsand that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.”Hebrews 11:6 Ok, so God rewards us if we have faith. So what types of rewards are we talking about? Since some make a distinction between old testament […]
  • Power is what will Finally Deliver You - However, praying in tongues is one of the easiest, (it is so easy it is like having game cheat), ways to move the power of God directly into your soul, body and life.
  • How To Invent Ethics & Reject God - We are to overcome them in faith, joy and righteousness.
  • In Tongues, God is My Minister - In tongues, you enter God's house, and He directly builds you up.
  • Do Not Manipulate God Like This - You do not need to manipulate God like this. Pray will clarity and to the point.
  • Spiritual Fodder: Expansionism - Casting out demons is level 1 for faith. After this, move on to greater heights of power. Casting out demons is spiritual cannon fodder.
  • When even God, is not God-centered Enough - What encouragement it is to know, instead to being so high minded that our brains even leave heaven, that if we center on God, who is centered on our faith, our faith will heal us.
  • Nazism, Communism and Christianity - Nazism, Communism and Christianity Hitler used the emotional pull of nationalism (appealing to nationalism is something almost all governments in all times have done—in some form– from its people since the dawn of time), as a slip of hand, to enforce his Darwinian Eugenics. When the Japanese government wants to protect the Japanese way of […]
  • Outsiders Buy Healing, Insiders Receive It Freely - There is no other way. If you truly think going to the doctor to get healing, is a benefit of the Cross, then you necessarily affirm you can “buy” the blood and atonement of Jesus Christ
  • Ready to be Withdrawn at your Pleasure - You already have them. Faith is God empowering you to see them already in your bank account, ready to be withdrawn at your pleasure.
  • This is how God treats reprobates - Copeland has faults (his basic points of health and wealth are not)
  • “So…I should throw rocks at gay people?” - "If I speak there is a sound. There is a sound; therefore I spoke." Yet, this irrational structure is the foundation for all experimentation
  • Offended At God’s Lavish Giving - Jesus replied to them, “Go and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive their sight, the lame walk, those with leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor are told the good news,and blessed is the one who isn’t offended by me. Matthew 11:4-6 CSB Let […]
  • It is a confession of unbelief to say, “in my humanity I can’t.” - I read this today and had these thoughts. “You have probably heard all your life that God won’t put any burden on you greater than you can bear. Don’t mark me off as a heretic just yet, but I don’t believe it. I believe that God will put heavier burdens on you than you can […]
  • There Is No Essential “Me” Left - To sound pious one fool quoted Romans 7 where Paul says, “in me nothing good lives,” to suggest that Christians cannot look inward to see glory, honor, righteousness and immortality.   First Paul was referring to a hypothetical typical Jew, and not to himself after being born from above. Mistaking this for Paul after being […]
  • The Path of Faith & the Spirit - It just dawned on me, that when I learned about (or that God personally taught me) God’s sovereignty and occasionalism and decrees, was when I was a teenage and had never heard of John Calvin or any reformation. It was a time I was praying in tongues and experiencing the anointing presence of God, and […]
  • Only Believe - “Do not fear; only believe, and she will be well.”– Jesus Faith and fear do not exist in the same place together. This is why Jesus said, “only believe.” Some have a mixture of faith and fear, and thus, their faith is not pure and only partial. Partial faith will get partial results, because of […]
  • A Disciplined Son, Sitting In His Room, In His Father’s House - What is the fear of the Lord? The fear of the lord is defined by its context. At times is simply means to worship the lord, as Jesus quotes to the devil. But at times it means awful dread of judgment. And lastly it can mean, as a legitimate son, to fear the discipline (not […]
  • Flooding the Gospel with Funding - 2 Corinthians 8:9 NLT, “You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich.” 2 Corinthians 9:8 LEB, “And God is able to cause all grace to abound to you, so that in everything […]
  • FAITH QUOTES - “You can’t leave up to God, what God has left up to you.” - Keith Moore
  • YOU Have The Ability, If YOU Believe - The father was asking about Jesus’ ability, and Jesus turns around and says there is ability to heal here; however, it lies with you and your faith.
  • Submit To Being A Sinner, Or to God’s Command? - “If God be our sovereign, we ought to subscribe to his afflicting will without debates. . . . It is God’s part to inflict, and the creature’s part to submit. . . . It is an unreasonable thing not to leave God to the exercise of his own dominion.” — Stephen Charnock I saw this […]
  • Scripture: Sufficient to Condemn John MacArthur & Justin Peters - Why is it so automatic for them to start with a “human” speculation and “human” superstition? 
  • Think On These Things: Think on Healing & Miracles - Thoughts of healing are commendable, and they are excellence of character. Thoughts of healing are praiseworthy.
  • God will boast about you! - Rather than you wasting time boasting about men, with faith, God will use His time to boast about you.
  • Sub-human Animal Dumb - “The… female ostrich… Indeed, it leaves its eggs to the earth, and it lets them be warmed on the ground, and it forgets that a foot might crush an egg, and a wild animal might trample it. It deals cruelly with its young ones, as if they were not its own, as if without fear […]
  • Vincent Cheung & Our Loyalty to the Reformation - Why should I care about your Reformation heritage...
  • The Human Ministry of Jesus Empowered by The Spirit - 10,000 more times apply a correct doctrine of the incarnation than all the Reformed tradition and books, and churches combined
  • God Commands Us To Get Healing - This is what it means to say, “God’s will,” be done in my life--it means obeying His commands like Jesus Christ did.
  • The Spirit tells our spirit about the …..? - we also keep focusing on devotions and faith, because the Spirit is relentless in directing our hearts to all the good and free things available to us in Christ.
  • God Wants To Exalt His Elect - God exalting you with grace and love is His plan. Do not doubt, only believe.
  • Devil Victimized People with Sickness But God Healed Them - The devil made people sick. God made them well. The devil victimized people with sickness. God destroyed the work of the devil by healing and loosing these oppressed people from Satan’s power. Jesus was the stronger One; He bound and plundered the devil’s house. They begged him to let the sick touch at least the […]
  • Scripture Uses God’s Transcendence to Shove His Nearness In Your Heart - I was re-reading this essay from Vincent below. It struck a chord in my mind because I had recently read a passage of Scripture in Ephesians 3 that said and concluded the same thing. First the quote from Vincent, “Those who claim to provide a God-centered theology are often proud of their theological prowess, but […]
  • God Proving His Love For You Is the Gospel, not you proving your love for God. - The gospel is not your love for God, but God's demonstration of love to you.
  • The Importance of Spiritual Growth - I have come to experience the love that God has for me, and it makes me want to love others more.
  • Love Never fails – To Heal by Miraculous Power - For those who do not have great heavenly powers of the baptism of the Spirit, Spiritual Gifts, Faith to move mountains, and are practiced in manifesting the Anointing Presence of God, this chapter of love is not applicable to them, or at the very least, it is mostly not applicable to them.
  • Calvin Institutes, And God Being the Cause of All Things - Here ‘will’ is improperly confounded with precept, though it is obvious, from innumerable examples, that there is the greatest difference between them.
  •  Desire vs Faith - Because the “foundation” is not us, but GOD, we have the confidence to read God’s promises, and confess them knowing God will renew and strengthen us, so that soon the doubts will be gone and an indomitable faith remains.
  • Jesus: “You Have Heard it Said…” - Jesus: You have heard it said, “if you ask, you might or might not get it, depending on God’s will.” However, I say to you, “If you ask you will receive, if seek you will find, and if you knock the door will be open.”
  • Obedience Proves you Understand the Scripture - If your pastors and favorites theologians do not have such ethics in their life, they do not give Scriptural proof they understand God’s sovereignty, or biblical epistemology as well as they claim
  • Prayer of Petition VS Dedication: When prayer becomes Non-prayer - We learn an important lesson: one type of prayer will negate the other. You are doing one or the other.
  •   Jesus Does the Marvelous “Works,” that the Father Does.   - [This section is from the “Works of God” section, from my Systematic Theology book] …This mighty work of God is mirrored in Jesus Christ and His saving of the Elect. Indeed there are even two baptisms in the New Contract with Jesus. One for the removal of slavery and sins, and one for the power […]
  • Look Jesus! there are Crumbs: YOU SAID IT, NOT ME - Your faith must treat God's every promise with this level of importance, or you are not a Christian.
  • Sola Scriptura: The Soiled Diaper of the Reformation - The Reformation took the idea of only standing on Scripture for knowledge and soiled it with empiricism and tradition. Sola scriptura is now God’s target practice.
  • Vaccine: Lest We Offend Them. - Faith in God's promises gives me the freedom to not give unnecessary offense, which Jesus often did. Without faith in God to do what He promised, then one is always limited and enslaved to circumstances.
  • “God’s Plan is to answer Your Plan” - I saw this quote today, “do not pray for God to bless your plan; rather, pray for God’s plan.” If this was the case, then there would have been no enlarged tent for Jabez(What does this have to do with “gospel centered? “God blessed Him anyway.), no healing King Hezekiah, no son for Hannah or […]
  • Sola Scripture or Sola Circumstances? - The love of God in giving promises for help does not negate our accountability and responsibility in obeying them.
  • The Confidence to Receive our Requests - John is doing the same here. He is not limiting, but expanding our hope of answers to prayer and making the requirements so easy to get.
  • Father, Give us our Eschatology Bread - If Jesus taught how to pray for our daily bread, then Caleb has also taught us how to pray for our eschatology bread.
  • Pagan-Level-Seeking Wealth - They had so much pagan-level-seeking wealth, the could easily make the tabernacle and the whole system that went with it.
  • The Pinnacle of a Spiritual Life - Whether he realizes it or not, this is the high intellectualism that bible teaches.
  • Jesus became Our Poverty, We become His Prosperity Today - Our poverty became His, and His riches becomes ours. Paul says this is for the church today, and not merely in heaven.
  • Christian Intelligence Is the Only Intelligence - The Christian is so superior and privileged by God as their Father, that only they are intelligent, wise and full of understanding
  • God promises to be a GOOD FATHER - Pay close attention to the word "Good."
  • Enemies of person Vs Enemies of the Gospel Ministry - If someone disagrees with our Christian worldview, then there is no greater hate they can show us. Likewise, by affirming their worldview is false, we hate them in the greatest possible way.
  • Live by Faith, Not Atheism - This is empiricism, which is the starting point for atheism. It is the starting axiom for all human philosophy. It is Satan’s axiom.
  • Word of Faith Confession. - One of the things I would tell my younger self, would be to do more devotional material and do weekly, if not daily word of faith confessions over God’s promises. To do them and never stop.  Below, is a WOF confession I do regularly.  I would encourage you to do this, if you are not […]
  • When God’s Will, Is Turned into Demonic Divination - We are not dealing with the difference about God’s Will, and its 2 ways the bible uses it, which is causality and command; this has already been dealt with. In addition, Vincent has already done a great article, demonstration the focus of the Bible about healing and such is not the Will of God, but […]
  • Help the Sick, By Giving Them a Smile? - You do not strengthen and bless the hungry (to take their fear away), by giving them a smile and words of comfort. You bless them, by giving them food.
  • Where are You; I’ll Pick You Up? - They can cry out to God for help, who sits on His throne of unmerited favor, and they can hear, through faith in His decrees and commands, “My dear child, where are you? I will pick you up.”
