- KJV Bible Believers Church in Touchet, Touchet, Washington - Pastor Mike
Paulson - 2007
the way of God more perfectly - Acts 18:26
with the Scriptures Rightly Divided - II
DOES Paul Preach, Anyway?
So, how are we all
doing with this Paul stuff, anyway?
Are some folks still following:
More and more valiant men & honourable & devout women are becoming
famous authors and personalities.
Jesus' own Gospel teachings?
Moses & Aaron?
John? - in Gospels? or maybe even
Ruth? Ruth Graham Ministries seeks
to minister God's mercy, grace, restoration and healing to those who are
hurting, often alone and in silence. We believe that Jesus Christ is the
only Son of God and provides us with the means for this restoration and
journey to wholeness.
Paltalk and all the perverted 'modern
Christian' weird teachers and pastors on the religion floor?
Johnny the B...
Your favorite music quartet?
Musical children / wives financing their
dad's / husband's evangelical ministry?
Your favorite blues singer - preacher
Those musical family (KJB, of course...)
Pastorette So & So?
Mr. and Pastorette So & So?
Reverend So & So?
Radio hosts & commentators - be
they Christian OR Secular?
Dr. So & So?
Pastor Joe Bob - who is still fighting'
the war between the states, etc.
J.R. Grooms and his memorization books?
or maybe just yourself...
maybe you still just let the manner
of life in your home run your life 24/7... I mean, you wouldn't want to
finally putting your foot down and spoil the fun around your home, ya know...
Compared to others!
But we really don't want any!
They can all be an enemy to Paul's gospel!
Honourable and devout wives are destroying
their husband's ministry all over the country!
Compared to KJB!
I would say, when compared to others,
(which we are not supposed to do II Corinthians
10:12), I would say we are doing ok! ESPECIALLY
when those others are the world or modern Christian.
Although some 'out there' still tend
to make wiser decisions, have 'happier' appearing families, calmer days
as they all go every which way - in their own activity, and are not so
stressed over their kid's education and future, because they just turn
their kids over to someone else and don't worry about it - they just put
their personal energy into something else 'for themselves!'
...and then, those folks are also in
huge debt, they are ignoring truth and reality and their future is one
of deeper deception and eternal damnation!
But when we compare ourselves to the
Book - the KJB - we are actually able to examine ourselves I
Thessalonians 5:21 - Prove all things;
hold fast that which is good. - according to God's way...
...a more perfect way, of course, because we know of Paul's teachings.
And now really,... I would still just
have to say, that even as I have tried to expound the way of God more perfectly
(Acts 18) - which is the more excellent
way of God today (I Corinthians 12:31)
and knowing that I am most definitely 'least of all of the preachers
and pastors" these days (Ephesians 3:18),
I will just say that we must admit that we all involved in apostasy - period!
Admit it - Apostasy is growing
daily and abounds everywhere!
We are all involved in apostasy!
We must just admit it!
teens - you think all of
us adults just don't know how to do anything right!
children - you still think
don't have to obey your parents!
wives - you still don't think
you are deceivable and your husband certainly doesn't know how to guide
men - it isn't that you don't
have time, you don't want to be the Bible Believing man...
We are not a church family oozing
with holiness - even of the holiness as described by Paul!
APOSTASY - EVERYWHERE
there come a falling away first...
2 isn't just about the local church!
around and compare things to the KJB!
Is it all just
doom and gloom?
Do you see, that that is our "problem"
- we actually believe the standard of authority is the KJB - all 66 Books!
That which is perfect - it has come! I Corinthians
Only the KJB exposes
the deceitfulness of unrighteousness
- as that can all come disguised as righteousness!
No, it is Bible
- and we should be at peace about it all!
Let's just trust
God's words - especially during these days!
becoming more and more dirty & uncivilized
perversion is growing everywhere!
Much isn't what it was written to have
even Christian involvement... Early
America was a mixed up Gospel - Calvinism and Great Commission, etc. Is
it no wonder that there is an increase of ungodliness in Christianity today!
Education - public or private - even
in the home - a mess. Apostasy everywhere!
morals are changing good to evil and
evil to good, etc.
Religion has finally shown it's true
colors yet no one can recognize the obvious lies anymore!
Our families / relatives
are a mess - you really can't even trust
your kids to be around most of them - or for them to be around your kids!
Within our own homes
They don't want you around them!
They are caught up in the world or in the Great Deception!
They are 'held captive by the devil - at his will - and you haven't been
able to do anything about it!
Our close family
Walk in that front door, stop and look
around! Signs of stress and too busy - too much on the plate?
too many projects and things? No time for the important things?
As we 'raise' our children instead of
training them, do we teach laziness, lower standards of living, personal
messiness, clutter, disobedience, wildness, loudness, lack of civility,
out of control behavior but all in all, they are just our 'cute' little
gods? (and then wonder in their next years why they
can't be 'cleaned up?'
How about our own selves?
stressing out - worried - what are your
concerns for your own family? showing signs of spoiledness?
idle time? riches?
let's see - pride,
fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness Ezekiel
Are we able to apply any learning and
ensample of Ruth, Boaz, etc. within our own homes?
Most children are a bother - an irritation
- or just a fun toy that you can try harder with when they get older!
are we still our own worst enemy?
We oppose ourselves - II Timothy 2:25
How is our walk now that we know we
don't HAVE to walk the Gospels? our own behaviour towards others?
relationships with others
Who have you hurt lately?
Do even have a Romans 7 battle going
on within you?
IN SPITE OF ALL THAT, REMEMBER...
- CHRIST PAID IT ALL
...and doesn't even impute any of it, either!
We had better thankful for that!
So, concerning Paul...
...do you know what his ways are that are to be taught in every
(or are you still studying the concept of Paul's gospel vs the Gospels
Are they taught in your church?
I Corinthians 4:17
Do you know what Philippians 4:9 all
Those things, which ye have both learned,
and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: ...
Has your walk been more pleasing to God or do you continue to call
more on His grace & mercy? I
Thessalonians 4:1,2 - Furthermore then
we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye
have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would
abound more and more. For ye know what commandments we gave you by the
Do you continue to try to 'grow in grace' (II
Peter 3:18) or just grow because of His grace?
(Paul says to choose # 2)
I will say, we have had the opportunity
to learn a lot...
We have had the opportunity to have our eyes opened
to the deception from those who are using Jesus' own teaching today...
We have had the opportunity to have wrong teachings
from our past righted more perfectly...
We have had the opportunity to have more air let
out of our religious baggage we carry with us...
We have had the opportunity to see the attack
on our children more than ever...
We have had the opportunity to see the local church
in it's proper design and purpose...
We have had the opportunity to understand the
Jews and their situation yesterday, today and tomorrow!
We have had the opportunity to believe stronger
than ever that the KJB is the Word of God - the words are from His mouth
- we know it to be 'perfect' - complete!
We have had the opportunity to learn how to go
'beyond Paul' - based on the KJB!
So, what do we TELL others?
About our personal growth?
What God has done for 'me?'
About our improvement in our walk?
About our improvement in our spiritual insight?
About our Bible knowledge upgrade?
About our increase in awareness in 'all things?'
They should already HAVE NOTICED those things in your life by now,
just by BEING the Christian Paul would have us be.!
Paul's manner of life is about BEING a Christian!
But refuse profane and old wives' fables,
and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
For bodily exercise profiteth little: but
godliness is profitable unto all things,
having promise of the life that now is,
and of that which is to come.
I Timothy 4:7,8
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the
sons of God,
without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked
and perverse nation,
among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
Holding forth the word of life; that I
may rejoice in the day of Christ,
that I have not run in vain, neither laboured
How is your building program?
For other foundation can no man lay than
that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Now if any man build upon this foundation
gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
Every man's work shall be made manifest:
for the day shall declare it,
because it shall be revealed by fire; and
the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
I Corinthians 3:11-13
We need to know what Paul preaches about BEING a Christian!
If you can't SHOW anything yet, don't tell them anything, either!
Don't give that Bible and Paul a bad testimony!
Folks today already have an UNKNOWN GOD!
They don't need your own UNKNOWN BOOK!
They don't need to hear about your UNKNOWN DIRECTION!
Don't show them who you follow ignorantly!
Don't show them who you blindly listen to at church!
Don't show them how you still live your life foolishly as just another
Grace is grace, but folks
out there don't understand it like Paul preaches it!
Unscriptural grace for all is the main theme of ecumenicalism!
Paul doesn't preach ecumenicalism at all!
So, What Does Paul Preach!
More details coming up in future sermons!
Everything we need to about BEING a Christian!
How to please God!
