John MacArthur Shares The True Gospel Of Jesus Christ

books-2158737_1280My number of friends on Facebook suddenly dropped.  I confronted a group of people there who call themselves Christians, out on their false teaching where Christians have to believe whatever is said in the Pentecostal and Charismatic tradition.

We never are allowed to question what they teach let alone confront them on it.  I read someone’s book about how the Pentacost belief system came from Africa; it carries Voodoo and Hoodoo along with it and became the Azuza revival, I guess, according to what I read.

If we never have boundaries and think that the bible just continues on past it’s book bindings, saying more, we have added words, beliefs and heresays to the Word of God.

Can we all learn more and be on the same page regarding the bible?  I suggest John MacArthur, who has 50 years of preaching and a college he started to his many faith-based accomplishments.  How many can say the same?

And, his teaching is spot on, very accurate.  He explains everything in the bible and has the study bible to show you what you should know.  So many preachers out there are following false gods.

Yes, it is true, I don’t want lost souls on my hands when it comes time to meet Jesus in the rapture and I have the commandment to go share the gospel with others, so what the hay?  I’ll share right here.  Starting with the commandment that we don’t continue to preach something not said in the bible, and we don’t share our experiences of something Satan did to make one believe that he is God.  He is not.

Tongues have stopped and John MacArthur has many teachings on this.  He has videos at his website; Grace to You as well as on YouTube.  You can google his name.  I have watched so many of his videos and hunger to watch more as I study my bible, which is John MacArthur’s study bible, to learn what I haven’t learned at other churches with pastors that try and sell their wares which is very disturbing.  One guy I know has started a miraculous school.  He even presumes he knows all about how to create miracles, like we even need some guy to do this, when we have God Almighty to create miracles if He wants to.

There is so much false teaching out there that I am very disturbed at how many souls will be lost from the false teachers that sell them a bill of goods, and steer them away from the true gospel.  They play in the den of demons which will make sure these baby Christians will be misled, never finding Christ, but only puffed up men who think they know it all, who don’t know the bible like John MacArthur does. 

My, my, what a world we’re living in when even the word of God is corrupted!

My hope is that lost souls wake up and find God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and that we have a world of believers who talk to Jesus, who He in turn knows.  Remember this;

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. ~ Matthew 7:21-23

I pray this: that every one of you reading this will go to John MacArthur’s website and start hearing what he has to say.  It’s pretty all-consuming, what, with his 50 years of sharing the gospel.

John MacArthur’s, “For Whom Did Christ Die?” video

I heard a great teaching last night on who Christ died for.  He died for “his elect”, not for the world as has been taught for so long in churchs.  I, myself, had felt confusion because one person says to share the Word with people, and they make a decision to come to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.  This is what I thought was the truth.  Then someone came along to burst my bubble and I learned something new.

John MacArthur preaches, captured on YouTube at https://youtu.be/TYkkTpcmyAw uploaded by Grace To You. His website is at https://www.gty.org. Screenshot taken by sleboeuf, from his video, entitled, “For Whom Did Christ Die? (Selected Scriptures)” .

Pastor John MacArthur, in his Grace To You video entitled, “For Whom Did Christ Die?(Selected Scriptures)”, explained that God chooses people that Jesus watches over.  We are chosen.  Christ died on the cross for his chosen people’s sins, not everyone’s sins in the whole, wide world!  At about 20 minutes into the video, Pr. MacArthur starts making it clear, that Jesus did not die for the whole world.  Then at approximately 36 minutes, he shares scripture, from the book of John.  This is the one that hit me the hardest:

I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. – John 17:9 

Jesus prays for “them which thou hast given me”, and this seals the deal for me.

John MacArthur goes on to explain how we get our belief from God.  We wouldn’t be capable by our own humanity to believe in the Lord Jesus.  So this tells me that we couldn’t believe on Him, without His gift of belief, of growing our faith, of being the author and finisher of our faith, as it says in Hebrews:

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. – Hebrews 12:2

So as a child while I was not told about the Lord Jesus Christ, I had no way of learning about Him, of hearing His name spoken in my household among my family members, so He cannot come to a child’s heart, when the parents don’t want Him in their home.  That is why I couldn’t believe on Him as a young child growing up, and it only was when I was harmed beyond control, that I came to God.  That I felt I needed Him, to stop me from going into a suicidal black darkness in my life.  I had enough faith to go to those 12-Step Recovery meetings, but I had no knowledge of His Word.

One way I can help others find God is to publish my thoughts on how I was conformed to His Word, and late in life, after having an atheist family to grow up in and never having the Words of the Lord Jesus Christ spoken at my home.  I missed a lot and I hope I can help someone understand Jesus better and who He really is.
