YESTERDAY'S FAITH


 Yesterday's Faith

This is a book of eleven short Sermons to re-ignite Christians values in today's decaying society, where all religions are acceptable in the name of love, even in many of the Christian Churches. 

Oblivious of the Antichrist element sweeping the World at the moment, many Christians fail to realise that most of the new age faiths and pagan religions have degraded Jesus Christ to a position of less importance disregarding His full deity as stated in Scripture. 

The Bible states that Jesus is the second member of the one and only Trinitarian God to be recognised  and worshipped. 

As we live this side of the Millennium, it has never been more important to realise that faith in Jesus Christ is the only way we may receive God’s forgiveness and Salvation.  

As the day draws near when every knee will bow to Jesus, as king of King and Lord of Lords.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR 

I have never written anything before but feel that there are issues that need addressing at this time. I certainly know the problems that the wrong teaching can cause young people first hand, after attending a Seventh Day Adventist School, while being Anglican; the conflicting ideas were not easy to deal with. 

My husband and I attended a Baptist Church for some time where the Pastor encouraged us to study for a Certificate in Theology, from Moore Theological College. As I always wanted a ministry to serve God we accepted. 

So with a lot of support and help from my husband and brother, I have written this book in the hope that it will help someone seek the real Jesus.

Introduction  

 

Yesterday's kind of faith is tomorrow’s Salvation. A fact so easily overlooked in today’s world, with the many World religions to explore and the idea of peace and harmony they promise their followers.  

It is time now as never before in these unsettled times that we, as followers of the Lord Jesus stand up for the Gospel as preached by the Lord Himself, in defiance of all the false versions that allow people to feel comfortable with a mix of Christian and pagan beliefs and feel that they are still being faithful to the true church of God.  

 If anyone is offended by the words and ideas in this book, then I am truly sorry, as I have written it without prejudice to any man woman, child, race or culture, in the effort to contradict some of the dangerous idea been presented as new age Christianity in the world at present, and discuss them in the light of unchangeable Scripture.  

For this I make no apology.  

I would like to thank all who have helped me with this book.  

First I would like to thank my God for the honour of writing these words in the hope that some may realise the hurt they are causing the Father, Son and Holy Spirit of this one Almighty God by the incorrect belief, that they can change Scripture to suit their life style in this new Millennium, thus feeling justified in their pagan beliefs.

 

I would also like to thank the late Rev Robert Ham and his wife Brenda for their help and encouragement to study for the TH.C in theology from Moore Theological College. Enabling this book to be written.

                

                         “Let the words of my mouth,

                           and the meditation of my heart,

                          be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD,

                          my strength, and my redeemer.”  

                                                           Psalm 19:14 K.j

Chapter Eleven (part sample)

 Christianity versus Islam

 

 With Christ our head and cornerstone,

 We’ll build our Nation’s might

 Whose way and truth and light alone

 Can guide our path aright

Our lives, a sacrifice of love, reflect our master’s care.

With faces turned to heaven above, Advance Australia Fair

In joyful strains then let us sing, Advance Australia Fair.

 

The above is either a censured or counterfeit verse of our national anthem, but which ever the case the sentiment of the verse should never be lost to the Australian people, for now is the time for all Christian Australians to regain Australia for the love of our God, and the freedom that He had obtained by His blood on the cross.  

Whether of convict descent, or free man, let us stand tall in this land Australia, in the knowledge that this is the land God gave us.  

We must never lose sight of the fact that there are forces in the world at the moment that would see Australia claimed for Islam, and there are many liberal thinking Christian and misguided do-gooders who are handing it to them, and diminishing the right of the Australian people.  

Our freedom of speech is not what it used to be, with all the anti- discrimination, anti-racial, and anti-everything else laws favouring people from other lands, to the point where even our democratic rights are being threatened.  

All Christian thinking people must make a stand now before it is too late; to ensure that religious discrimination against the followers of the Lord Jesus never happens in this country.  

In some cases there are signs of this happening even now.  

With the fall away from tradition, among the modern generation, we are even seeing the clergy of some Christian faiths feel the need to have discussion and seminars with those of Muslim and pagan beliefs in the effort to bring the faiths closer together. This could be a good idea if it was used to bring the non-Christian closer to faith in Jesus Christ, but often the opposite is the case with the Christian coming closer to seeing the point of the Muslin and pagan.  

As one Anglican brother stated after one such day of interfaith sharing:

“One wonders at times if God really does have a favourite religion; was our excommunicated off shoot of Jewry the only way?”   

That any Christian Clergy could hold such a thought for even a second is proof of how some have lost their way, and turned their back on the faith and deity of Jesus Christ.  

It is true that some religions claim to follow the same God, but we must realise, that not all faith and worship is acceptable to God, unless it proclaims the Lord Jesus as the only Saviour, and the eternal Son of the Father, and second person in the Trinity of a monotheistic God.  

It is very disappointing how the church has accepted all faiths, and feel that they are doing the right thing, even though such practices are warned against in the Bible.  

One such Sermon preached in an Anglican Church the weekend after Australia day must have been very disappointing to our Lord, where the Priest stated:

“As a nation we’ve been through testing times and indeed still are on that journey, as we’ve begun to learn to honour the original inhabitants of this land.  Perhaps another challenge for now and into the future is learning how to not only be a multicultural society but also a multi faith society.

“It would be inspiring to think that Christians could be leaders in these changing times. That we could be seen as loving one another, yes! 

“But also that we could be seen as loving – wanting the best for all people.  That we could be seen as people who truly honour this creation and seek what is best for the whole world.

“In short that we could be truly and deeply, people of love.”  

True the times may change, but what God expects of us will never change.  

What may I ask is love?   

If not our committed effort in bringing all people into the love of the Christian God, who believes that every person lost to another faith, is one taken from His protective saving love obtained only through His Son.  

Our first love must be shown towards God and in obedience to His Word that love must also show concern for the salvation of all of God’s creation, while standing faithfully committed to the one true God.  

In Australia all people are free to follow their own faith.  

We have freedom of religion, and so it should be, but having said that, it should be realised that Australia has always been predominately Christian, until now that is. Today we see even the clergy trying to weaken the faith, in Jesus Christ by trying to accept all faith in the name of love as if love is more important than the Lord Himself.  

The trouble is that the modern Christian has taken Love too far into areas that our Lord did not even suggest.  

Many are using love in the same way the Scribes and Pharisees used the law. As long as you love there is no need to obey the Scriptures

“The characteristic form of love in the New Testament is for the fellow Christian, love for the outsider being expressed in evangelistic outreach and in the patient endurance of persecution. (Page 917 The Illustrated Bible Dictionary part 2.)  

A Christian should be led by the Holy Spirit to love the way our Father loves as revelled in His Son Jesus Christ.  

To seek and pray for the well being, of all peoples, friend or foe, but never be tempted, to be lead astray by their misguided ways.  

Jesus never agreed with the so-called religions Two Thousand years ago when on Earth, not even under the penalty of death. He was never afraid to preach his truths to the Priests and the lawyers of the day. Nor did he bow to their vain idea of their own importance, as if they knew better that God Himself.  

So what gives us the right, to accept all faiths and still claim to be a true disciple of Jesus Christ?  

A true disciple of Christ stands firm in the face of diversity regardless of the pressures from the world to conform.  

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes.”

Roman 1:16 kJ

 

It is time for all Christian every where to bravely defend the gospel of Christ, as never before,  

“For our struggle not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].

“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

“And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:” Ephesians 6:12-17kj
