Cold? Hot? or Lukewarm? Part 2

Friday, October 18, 2019

Sharon Hardy Knotts and R. G. Hardy

Cold? Hot? or Lukewarm?

In His last letter to the seven churches of Revelation, Jesus indicted the Church of Laodecia: "I would that you were cold or hot. But because you are lukewam, I will spew you out of my mouth!"  Did He mean, as some have said, that it's better to be cold... a sinner or backslider in the world, or hot... an on-fire believer in the church, than to be lukewarm... mediocre, or worse, a hypocrite?

Scripture proves there are no circumstances where God wants anyone to be cold in sin. And while Jesus sharply rebuked hypocrites, calling them serpents and sepulchres,  He was not referring to  them in the lukewarm category. 

So what did He mean by lukewarm? Laodecia's ill-famous aquaduct and her two sister cities' water supply hold the key.

The Crucifixion Conspiracy, Part 3 - Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Israel's Exodus from Egypt was so monumental, God gave them a new calendar to mark the occasion, and the first feast day on the calendar was Nisan 10. On this day every house selected a perfect, year-old male lamb to be offered on Passover four days later. Fast-forward 4000 years to Nisan 10 in Jesus’ day. While all over Jerusalem families chose their lambs, Jesus was being led into the city on a donkey with multitudes waving palm branches, rejoicing: “Hosanna to the Son of David!” They did not realize God was choosing His final Lamb on that Palm Sunday. The next four days developed into the most notorious conspiracy the world has ever known.

There were many players on that stage of infamy: the religious council with the high priest, false witnesses, Pilate, Herod, soldiers, and Judas. Each had a significant part in condemning the Son of God, much of which was necessary to fulfill the protocol of offering the Passover Lamb. A question often asked: Who was responsible for crucifying Jesus?

Discover startling answers to this and little known, fascinating facts that surround this Passover plot with intrigue and surprise: Why did the priests want Pilate to change the inscription on Jesus’ cross? The acrostic it formed in Hebrew rocked their world!

Build Again the Altars, Part 2 - Friday, October 11, 2019

Elijah faced such desecration that he said he was the only righteous one left not worshipping Baal! Today there is a true parallel—The altars of righteousness have been removed from our homes, schools, and even our churches, while the enemy builds his altars of compromise and imported religions. God is calling for His righteous remnant—7000 who have not bowed their knees to compromise, to rise up and rebuild the altars of true worship!

Amalekites Among Us, Part 3 - Wednesday, October 9, 2019

The Amalekites are the descendents of Ismael, Jacob's uncle, and Esau, his twin brother, who married Ismael's daughter. They have proven to be Israel's worst enemy to this day, but Amalek is also God's enemy. God said that He would be at war with him through all generations. King Saul was commanded to kill them all, but he spared their King Agag, whom the prophet Samuel then killed with the sword. Yet his descendent, Haman the Agagite, turned up centuries later when Israel was in exile in Persia. He devised a plot to kill all the Jews in the kingdom, and he would have gotten away with it, but God orchestrated the rise of a lowly Jewess to Queen, who saved her people.

The trail of intrigue that follows the Amalekites' hatred of the Jews leads straight to the White House and the politcal arena where Israel is still fighting for her survival.
