The Character of God

The Holiness of God

  • Your eyes are too pure to approve evil, and You cannot look on wickedness with favor. Habakkuk 1:13
  • But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. Isaiah 59:2

 The Justice of God

  • For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; the upright will behold His face. Psalm 11:7
  • But the LORD of hosts will be exalted in judgment, and the holy God will show Himself holy in righteousness. Isaiah 5:16
  • God is a righteous judge, and a God who has indignation every day. If a man does not repent, He will sharpen His sword; He has bent His bow and made it ready. Psalm 7:11-12

 The Depravity & Condemnation of Man

  • For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
  • For all of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment Isaiah 64:6
  • For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, ACCURSED IS EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT ABIDE BY ALL THINGS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW, TO PERFORM THEM. Galatians 3:10

Photo of the Day: Bibles For The Philippines

We have been blessed to have a life-long friendship with Dwight Spears who moved to the Philippines to help share the Gospel. His ministry focuses on the Gospel especially in distributing the Word of God to areas where they desperately need Bibles. His passion for souls and the sufficient Word of God has united us and we were honored to able to purchase a case of Bibles which are being shipped to the Philippines. We hope to continue to collect Bibles and send them on an on-going basis and look forward to see how God uses our friendship for His glory.

Annoucement: Project 001

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. With sadness but also with complete trust in our sovereign God and optimism for what is to come we have to announce the elimination of the project 001 Haven of Hope Center in Escuintla, Guatemala. Funds have been limited as we need to increase our number of monthly donors and we were not receiving enough donations each month starting at the end of 2016 and entering into 2017 to be able to pay salaries to our staff operating the center. After informing the staff and giving them two months payment to help in this transition they decided not to continue the work although we were going to continue to offer monthly support to this center as The Hope Movement is the founder and operator of this center and just operate with volunteers as we do with our other centers and less days a week. So the center under The Hope Movement will temporarily close and we will work on raising funds to reopen in Escuintla in another location if it's God’s will and focusing more on planting a church, evangelism, Christian education in a school for children with the greatest financial needs and nutrition. In the meantime we have three other projects in Guatemala which are providing the same services in Nuevo Amanacer (Project 003), San Juan Sacatepequez (Project 004) and Villa Lobos (Project 005). We will also be working on evangelistic missions to many areas including Escuintla. Along with our work in Guatemala we are now caring for orphans and widows in Africa and expanding our spread of the Gospel to many nations including the United States.

 

Power of Grace: Baltimore Mission

On April 8, 2017 group of volunteers worked at our transformed vacant lot on North Ave. in Baltimore City which is now the Haven of Hope Community Garden. We put up a small banner in the front of the garden which says "Need Prayer" and a Bible verse from Romans. As we were working in the garden people began to come to us seeking prayer not for things but for a change in their life. One lady came running up to us and asked where was the sign about Grace. I had just moved the sign to the side and she said I have been clean for 5 months and everytime I walk past this Garden I look at that sign and it reminds me of God's grace and my need to change. The sign says Grace is not an excuse to remain in your sin but a reason to love him more fully. The gospel was preached as many came seeking prayer and seeds were planted. To God be the glory.

Essential Convictions

Missions is an Impossibility apart from the Power of God. All men of every culture are born radically depraved, at enmity with God, and restraining the truth. The conversion of a man and the advancement of missions are an absolute impossibility apart from the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit in the regeneration of the individual and the life of the church. Many church growth strategies and mission methodologies often overlook this essential truth.

Question: "What is the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture? What does it mean that the Bible is sufficient?"

Question: "What is the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture? What does it mean that the Bible is sufficient?"

 

Answer: The doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture is a fundamental tenet of the Christian faith. To say the Scriptures are sufficient means that the Bible is all we need to equip us for a life of faith and service. It provides a clear demonstration of God’s intention to restore the broken relationship between Himself and humanity through His Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior through the gift of faith. No other writings are necessary for this good news to be understood, nor are any other writings required to equip us for a life of faith.

It only costs $60 per child for primary school, $300 per child for high school and $700 per child for college to get a teaching degree.

Truth About The "Sinners Prayer" vs True Repentance

Original Article: Ten Reasons To Not Ask Jesus Into Your Heart

by Todd Friel

The music weeps, the preacher pleads, “Give your heart to Jesus. You have a God shaped hole in your heart and only Jesus can fill it.” Dozens, hundreds or thousands of people who want to get their spiritual life on track make their way to the altar. They ask Jesus into their heart.

 

Cut to three months later. Nobody has seen our new convert in church. The follow up committee calls him and encourages him to attend a Bible study, but to no avail. We label him a backslider and get ready for the next outreach event.

 

Our beloved child lies in her snuggly warm bed and says, “Yes, Daddy. I want to ask Jesus into my heart.” You lead her in “the prayer” and hope that it sticks. You spend the next ten years questioning if she really, really meant it. Puberty hits and the answer reveals itself. She backslides. We spend the next ten years praying that she will come to her senses.

 

Telling someone to ask Jesus into their hearts has a very typical result, backsliding. the Bible says that a person who is soundly saved puts his hand to the plow and does not look back because he is fit for service. In other words, a true convert cannot backslide. If a person backslides, he never slid forward in the first place. “If any man is in Christ, he is a new creation.” (II Cor.5) No backsliding there.

 

Brace yourself for this one: with very few if any exceptions, anyone who asked Jesus into their hearts to be saved…is not. If you asked Jesus into your heart because you were told that is what you have to do to become a Christian, you were mis-informed.

 

 

If you have ever told someone to ask Jesus into their heart (like I have), you produced a false convert. Here is why.
