The coming of the Holy Spirit did not nullify the commands of Jesus in the gospels

I had to share this article with you all:)

Enjoy.  God bless you all:))))

http://www.theelijahchallenge.org/the-coming-of-the-holy-spirit-was-not-to-nullify-the-commands-of-jesus-in-the-gospels/

Charismatic believers can place much emphasis on the work and the leading of the Holy Spirit. At times this emphasis can be taken too far by which the teaching and commands of Jesus in the gospels are superseded. But the work of the Holy Spirit is not for us to focus on him, but to testify about Jesus.

John 15:26 “When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me.

The Greek word for “testify” is martureō, literally, “to be a witness.” The Holy Spirit is to be a witness of Jesus Christ: of who Jesus is—including of course what Jesus taught his disciples. The Holy Spirit enables us to believe in Jesus as the Son of God and the Messiah, to walk as he did and to obey his commands boldly and fruitfully.

Jesus gave various commands to his disciples in the gospels. Let’s study what he commanded them to do as they proclaimed the gospel of the kingdom to the lost.

Luke 9:1 When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, 2 and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. …6 So they set out and went from village to village, proclaiming the good news and healing people everywhere.

Luke 10:1  After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. …9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ …17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”

It’s clear that when Jesus sent out the Twelve and then the Seventy-two disciples, he commanded them—not to pray to God for the sick—but rather to heal the sick and cast out demons by using the supernatural power and authority he had given them. A study of Acts following the coming of the Spirit at Pentecost reveals that the disciples continued to use this power and authority to heal the sick and cast out demons as compelling evidence of the gospel when they went out to proclaim the kingdom of God to the gentiles.

Therefore even today when disciples are proclaiming the kingdom of God to the lost, they are not simply to pray to God for the sick but rather to heal the sick using the Lord’s power and authority. But this is rarely taught in charismatic circles today due to their particular emphasis on the Holy Spirit. When ministering to the sick during evangelistic outreaches, charismatic believers today often focus on the gifts of the Spirit, in particular, “the gift of healing.” This gift, however, is separate and distinct from and not to be confused with the supernatural power and authority to heal the sick and cast out demons which Jesus gave to those he sent out to proclaim the kingdom of God. But this truth is largely neglected by the Church.

This is one reason why the miraculous healings recorded in the gospels and Acts as evidence and confirmation of the gospel are rarely seen through disciples today when they are sharing the gospel. They often rely exclusively on the gifts as led by the Spirit, and neglect the supernatural power and authority to heal the sick given them by our Lord Jesus. The use of this power and authority does not necessarily depend on “the leading of the Spirit,” but rather on our proclaiming the kingdom of God to the lost.

Supernatural power and authority are clearly to be used when proclaiming the kingdom of God—that is, in evangelism. But according to 1 Corinthians 12 the gifts, including the gift of healing, are primarily for the benefit of the body of Christ.

1 Corinthians 12: 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.

From the context of this chapter, we know that “the common good” clearly refers to the good of the whole body of Christ. Therefore the gifts of the Spirit, including the gift(s) of healing, are primarily to be used in ministering to believers in the context of building up the body of Christ within the Church.

By contrast, power and authority over infirmities and demons are to be used outside the Church when proclaiming the kingdom of God to the lost. But the effective use of this power and authority are rarely taught to believers. The focus within the ministry of healing is almost always on the gift of healing. One reason for this is the unspoken assumption in many charismatic circles that after Pentecost what Jesus taught and commanded in the gospels is superseded by the leading of the Holy Spirit and his gifts. This assumption is unwarranted, and among other things robs us of the understanding of the supernatural power and authority the Lord gives to every disciple who is sent out as a witness of Jesus Christ—which includes every believer.

John 14:11  Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. 12  Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

Rather the Holy Spirit gives us power to be witnesses for the Lord Jesus (Acts 1:8), enabling us to do the miraculous works that He did as evidence to the world that He is One with the Father and the only way to Him. And such miraculous works can be done by using the supernatural power and authority already given to us.

The Holy Spirit did not come to nullify what Jesus taught, but rather to enable us to obey His commands boldly and effectively as His witnesses to the world.

Donald Trump Says He Will Use Tent Cities to End Caravan, Catch and Release

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/10/29/donald-trump-says-his-caravan-plan-will-end-catch-and-release/

President Donald Trump told Fox News that he will hold Central American asylum-seekers in detention while they wait for their asylum requests to be considered by immigration judges.

“We’re going to hold them [in detention] until such time their trial takes place,” he told Fox News host Laura Ingraham Monday night. He continued:

We’re going to build tent cities, we’re going to put tents up all over the place … The [migrants] are going to wait [in detention], and if they don’t get asylum, they get out of here.

“We’re not letting them into this country,” he said, suggesting his plan will include all Central American asylum-seekers, not just the migrants in the two approaching caravans of Honduran migrants.

Trump says: “We’re going to build tent cities. We’re going to put tents up all over the place … and they’re going to wait.”

Under current protocol, migrants who clear an initial screening are often released until their cases are decided in immigration court, which can take several years.

Dozens of Christians Killed, Church Burned, in Muslim Attack on Market in Kaduna State, Nigeria

JOS, Nigeria (Morning Star News) – Muslims attacked a market in Kaduna state, in north-central Nigeria, on Thursday (Oct. 18), killing dozens of Christians and burning a church building, sources said.

Area residents said a Muslim at the market in Kasuwan Magani, 36 kilometers (22 miles) south of the city of Kaduna, began yelling “Thief!” in the late afternoon in a move calculated to cause pandemonium ahead of an attack on Christians and their homes and businesses.

“A Muslim raised a false alarm about a thief in the market, which caused stampede, and then other Muslims started chanting ‘Allahu Akbar [the jihadist slogan, God is Greater],’ attacking Christians, burning houses and shops belonging to Christians in the town,” area resident Kefas Mallam told Morning Star News.

The Rev. James Moore of the town’s Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), told Morning Star News that the assailants burned down one church building belonging to the Cherubim and Seraphim movement.

“There was an alert of a thief in the market,” he said. “When people heard ‘Thief! Thief!’ they were confused and started running. Unknown to the people, it was a strategy by the Muslim youth to attack the people. They went into killings, looting and burning.”

Moore, who is the area district secretary of the ECWA, said it was difficult to give a definitive casualty figure as the town was in complete lockdown following imposition of a 24-hour curfew the night of the attack. Kaduna Gov. Nasir El-Rufai visited the site in the Kajuru Local Government Area on Friday (Oct. 19) and said 55 people had been killed.

“According to what the police have briefed me so far, 55 corpses have been recovered; some burned beyond recognition,” he said.

Local press reported the violence began as an attack by young men attacking the market that escalated into a clash between “two youth groups of different religion.”

Gov. El-Rufai told reporters that the state government had imposed a curfew in the area and security agencies were restoring calm.

“It cannot continue, we are going to deal decisively with anyone involved in this,” he said. “This country belongs to all of us; this state belongs to all of us. No one is going to chase anyone away. So, you must learn to live with everyone in peace and justice.”

He added that the violence was “totally unacceptable,” and that anyone connected with or even observing the violence would be detained.

“I have charged the security agencies and the authorities here, local and traditional, to ensure that everyone connected with this, whether as a participant, instigator, or even watching while it is going on, is apprehended and prosecuted,” he said.

Area Muslims also attacked Christians on Feb. 26. Luke Waziri, a Christian community leader in Kasuwan Magani, told Morning Star News by phone that during the February attack, 12 Christians were killed.

“And 67 other Christians arrested after that incident are currently facing trial in a court in the city of Kaduna,” he added, lamenting that they were detained without cause by police under the direct control of a Muslim inspector general of police and a Muslim police commissioner.

“The sad thing is that the police are aware that Muslims in Kasuwan Magani have accumulated weapons with the intent to continually attack us, but they are unable to arrest these Muslims,” Waziri said.

Waziri, who is the national secretary of the Adara Development Association (ADA), a predominantly Christian ethnic group in Kaduna state, expressed sadness that while Christians had yet to overcome the trauma of the February attack, Muslims launched an assault on them again on Thursday (Oct. 18).

Christians make up 51.3 percent of Nigeria’s population, while Muslims living primarily in the north and middle belt account for 45 percent.

Nigeria ranked 14th on Open Doors’ 2018 World Watch List of countries where Christians suffer the most persecution.

 

Bible Museum says 5 of its Dead Sea Scrolls are fake

A tiny fragment of what the Museum of the Bible thought was part of the Dead Sea Scrolls (file photo)

A US Bible museum has removed fragments of what it believed were part of the Dead Sea Scrolls from display, after tests suggested they were forgeries.

The Museum of the Bible, in Washington DC, sent five of its 16 fragments for analysis in Germany.

But results showed “characteristics inconsistent with ancient origin”, the museum said.

Costing $500m (£386m), the museum was opened by Evangelical Christian and billionaire Steve Green in 2017.

The Dead Sea Scrolls are a set of ancient manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible.

The first of the scrolls were found in caves in Qumran on the western shore of the Dead Sea in 1947. They were reportedly first discovered by a young Bedouin shepherd searching for lost sheep.

‘Commitment to transparency’

The tests were ordered after biblical scholars who examined 13 of the museum’s previously unstudied fragments said there was a “high probability” that a number of them were modern forgeries.

The museum’s chief curatorial officer, Jeffrey Kloha, said that he had hoped the “testing would render different results”.

However, he added: “This is an opportunity to educate the public on the importance of verifying the authenticity of rare biblical artefacts, the elaborate testing process undertaken and our commitment to transparency,”

It is not the first time the museum’s owners have faced controversy.

Last year, Mr Green’s company the Hobby Lobby paid a $3m fine (£2.3m) and returned thousands of items after the US Department of Justice accused it of smuggling artefacts from Iraq.

Soros’s Rented Evangelicals

The American Association of Evangelicals

‘Imagine the evil of using a Christian front to de-Christianize a culture and nation…’

The Troubling Relationship Between Soros and US’s Biggest Foreign Aid Agency

(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) Leftist billionaire George Soros has “rented evangelicals” to advance his political agenda for many years, according to an Oct. 12 video from The American Association of Evangelicals.

AAE said Soros, through the Open Society Foundations, funds evangelical and Catholic “mascots” who will promote amnesty, open borders and illegal-immigrant voter registration.

The paid Christian leaders serve as “surprising validators for their anti-Christian projects and candidates,” AAE said. “Imagine the evil of using a Christian front to de-Christianize a culture and nation.”

The goal of this is to infiltrate “the Christian base in America to divide, and ultimately conquer, the religious minded within the Republican Party,” Cheryl Chumley wrote in an opinion piece for The Washington Times.

The video shows Heather Hurlburt, an executive for New America, a left-wing policy organization, admitting her group’s use of the “rent an evangelical” model.

Soros funds Rev. Jim Wallis’s Sojourners, an in-print monthly magazine and an online publication, that defends politics of identity and social justice from a supposedly Christian perspective.

In 2010, Wallis denied that his group received money from Soros.

“No, we don’t receive money from George Soros,” he said. “Our books are totally open. Always have been. Our money comes from Christians who support us and who read Sojourners.”

AAE reported that soon after this interview “grants from Soros to Wallis disappeared from the Open Society website.”

Soon after, however, reporters “found the money trail” and “Wallis was forced to admit the truth.”

The National Review reported on Soros’ influence on Christian groups in 2010.

Sojourners received three grants from the Open Society Foundation, which the National Review called “only the tip of the iceberg.”

Soros funds dozens more religious groups: Pico, Faith in Public Life, Faithful America, New Evangelical Partnership, Telos, J Street, National Council of Churches, Evangelicals for Human Rights, Catholics United, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics for Choice.

“Rather than advancing the whole counsel of Scripture as the highest love for people and culture, these useful ministers assist non-Christian policies, projects and politicians with faith words, optics, organizing and media to confuse Christian and other value voters, to recruit the Church into their radical political agenda and to help the left’s politicians get elected,” AAE said in the video.https://nworeport.me/2018/10/25/soros-rents-evangelicals-to-champion-his-radical-leftist-agenda/
