**What We Believe (2)**

Believe Gold Faux Foil Glittery Metallic Inspirational Quote Iso

  • We are created in His (trinity) image: Mind (Father), Body (Jesus) and Spirit (Holy Spirit). God did not say let us create man in MY image. He specifically said “our.” Each part of the God-head has their role just as does the mind, body and spirit (soul) of man.
  • Jesus is the Son of God. God fathered Jesus through the Virgin Mary.
  • Jesus will return to earth to claim His throne in Jerusalem and remove Satan from his influence on earth for 1,000 years, but will leave intact the God-given and created free will of man. We will still have choice to accept or reject. No neutral ground.
  • When one accepts the offer of living in Christ and His salvation, there is one spiritual baptism. Tongues is but one Spiritual Gift, and as are the other gifts, only a sign of one’s acceptance of Jesus Christ.
  • Spiritual Gift(s) are given to each born again Christian to be used as their contribution to the body of believers while on earth. If one does not practice his or her gift, s/he may have it taken away.
  • Opinions and paraphrases expressed by anyone without supporting scripture are just that; opinions and personal paraphrases.
  • Satan in the end time tribulation will establish his Beast kingdom on earth but it will be destroyed by God at the second coming of Jesus in power and glory. Satan will be bound during the thousand-year reign. Afterward, he will be loosed to deceive the nations once again. Satan will then be cast into the Lake of Fire as will all those who refuse a life in Christ. [Don Koenig: SoF. Emphasis mine] There will be one last great revival during the Tribulation. Israel will try to return to God during the second half of the Tribulation when the abomination of their Temple is evidenced via Satan himself.
  • God the Father is Spirit. We must worship, give praise and thanksgiving to Him in spirit and as demonstrated by our life.
  • There will be two eternal judgments of mankind. The first is the Bema Seat judgment of Christians for rewards earned by faithfulness. The second is the Great White Throne judgment of all remaining souls, present and past, from the books opened at this time. [Rev 20:11, 12, 15]
  • When Satan was cast from dwelling in heaven, he took 1/3 of the angels with him in rebellion against God. Angels, just as do humans, have free choice but no redemption plan.
  • Satan still stands before the Throne of God accusing Christians of failure but Jesus is intercessor. This will be so until Satan is refused access to God midway through the Great Tribulation. He will attempt to destroy mankind after failing to completely rule them.
  • Christians are instructed to test the spirits or spirit of anyone claiming to be of and in Christ but rejects Jesus Christ as the one and only [begotten] Son of God.
  • Knowledge comes from study. Understanding comes from knowledge. Desire to serve comes from conviction. Conviction breeds a desire to use one’s gift(s) from the Holy Spirit.

  • All born again believers are called to be a living witness; not just required of pastors, teachers, and evangelists.
  • There is not to be a “kingdom of God” on earth until Christ returns to the Mount of Olives declaring himself as the King of Kings.
  • Apostles, as defined by the Apostle John and declared by the Apostle Paul, in today’s existence are not legitimate titles.
  • True believers in Jesus Christ who hold conflicting millennial views have not alienated themselves from the pending Kingdom of God upon the 2nd Advent of Jesus Christ. True believers that hold differing eschatological positions are still brothers and sisters in the Lord. Man is always subject to error, but God’s Word is inerrant.
  • America is not mentioned in Scripture. [Opinion] It has or will somehow neutralize itself by divisiveness, unforgivable debt, and loss of world influence/power. God’s wrath will not be spared in America.
  • There will be one last great revival during the Tribulation. Israel will try to return to God during the second half of the Tribulation when the abomination of their Temple is evidenced via Satan himself.
  • Satan or his trinity [beast or false prophet] will exercise great deception with supernatural powers. Many, but not all will be deceived. Those not deceived will carry the Mark of Christ.
  • The mark of the beast and the Mark of Christ are real identities during the Tribulation.
  • Good works is not a path to an eternal heaven. Good works does not mean avoidance of final Bema Seat or Great White Throne judgment.
  • Any denomination, church, religion or minister putting more emphasis on experience than it does worship, praise, bible study and fellowship is false. The path of good intentions does not lead to Christ.
  • According to the Lord’s Prayer there are two types of sin; sin against God and sin against fellow mankind.
  • God will discipline His children if they are “living” in sin, but He does not disown them. The ultimate discipline in the flesh is death of the body so the soul will be saved. However, death does not mean one is or was continuing a life of sin. It is appointed for man once to die but a true believer will not experience the second death.
  • When Jesus Christ returns to earth as the King of Kings, he will call his chosen people from the four winds and corners of the earth.
