I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ!
Ashamed of the gospel? NEVER. I will stand flat footed and preach of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth, to every nation, and until Jesus Christ himself comes back.
He answered and said, It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.
I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ , according to the scriptures, it is the power of God unto salvation to all who believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
But whosoever shall deny me before mankind, will I also deny before my Father; which is in heaven.
Standing By The Word Of God
In my going to church and studying the scriptures, I stand by thing teachings I have learned over the last 28 years. There were many things I researched and did cross references on, just to know for myself. I had many unanswered questions. Things that the word of God spoke on that seem to contradict itself, as well as the messages that went forth in church.
Getting An Understanding
There were things that simply weren’t adding up, and after much searching, I discussed and asked many questions to others I felt had some type of knowledge regarding the word of God.
Many things the bible spoke about, as well as the things I would hear in Sunday school or over the pulpit. I couldn’t just take the word of mere men, I wanted to see what God was saying with my own eyes. What was God really saying? That I would be able to take a firm stand and not be ashamed to do so.
As I studied and prayed for clarity, God begin to show me some things personally, such as visions and a rhema word. Things that blew my mind and only something a higher being could do. Things that made my jaws drop and the drive to know more.
Seek And Ye Shall Find
I encourage every body to study God’s word. See for yourself. Don’t just take my word or some preacher. Yes they are usually knowledgeable, but there is nothing like seeing for yourself. Only a foolish person would take something or someone at face value. Certainly not in the world we live in today.
My advice to you is to pray first and then study. Open your heart to the things that God has in store for you. Do not be ashamed to pray, study or ask questions, to God or to man. If at any point man gets upset with you, because of your sincere questions, then know that you have a problem. You will not be like sheep lead to the slaughter.
It makes no difference how you study as long as you make time to do so.
Knowledge Is Power
Knowledge without application is of no avail. Knowledge is power, use your knowledge in a positive and honest manner, never bend or bow for anyone. Stand for what you believe in. Never stand for evil or wrongdoing.
Encourage Yourself: Be not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation to all who believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
