Chapter 2 from the book

“What Awaits Anabaptists in the Last Days”, pp. 3-30.

By Boris, a Christian brother

The revolution took place in Russia in 1917 and Russia was in for 70 years of great darkness, of atheism and the authorities fighting against God. So the Lord, in His mercy and His providence, decided to send help to Russia and put up a standard there and bring the Light of the Gospel into Russia. The Lord sent one man from the USA, filled with the Holy Ghost. He sent him to Russia. He was a Russian man, and he came into Russia started to preach the apostolic message; the message of salvation; the message of sanctification; the message of holiness; the message of dying unto sin; the message of repentance; and the message of also entering the blessing of the Lord – into the outpouring of the Holy Ghost and the miracles of God’s power which are able to be performed when God’s people seek His Face.

Russian people were very simple people at that time. The majority of them were farmers. There was hardly any education. The message preached was believed and so a revival broke out in Russia. It spread like fire through many villages, many towns.

When God sent that man into Russia, revival took over the whole of the Ukraine and all of Russia; as far as the Ural mountains which are the mountains running north and dividing the Russian mainland from Siberia.

So the Lord was doing mighty things and He was establishing a church there; a Living church which was going away from the orthodox church.

There were many people, thousands and thousands of people, coming to the Lord through the simple message and the power of the Holy Ghost like in the days of the apostles.

Sermon “To Set in a Wide Open Space”

What good is in hardships? How to live during hard times and what is reward for humility before God? What war teaches Christians and how in the tight circumstances and distress to discover the width of God’s blessings.

God gives wide open space in distress if you correctly walk through the valley of a shadow of death. If you pass your difficult circumstances with the right heart, God opens incredible sources of blessing. “As they pass through the Baca Valley, he provides a spring for them. The rain even covers it with pools of water. (Psalm 83:6 NET). We saw, how these sources opened up in our lives.

God supernaturally liberated Slavyansk. One group left, another came in and the peace came. They just vanished instantaneously at 6 or 6.30 am. And I am calling the military and I said to them, “Do you know that there are no more armed people left in Slavyansk?” “How come?”, they ask. “They just left.”

I am absolutely sure that by the means of prayers of the saint, when you hold the Word and say, “Lord, everything You said is the truth and it is going to happen even in spite of what your eyes are telling you.” God performed a great miracle. Today people in the city have their own fears. People feel differently. But nobody, no matter what feeling or opinions they have, nobody wants combat operations. Nobody wants bombing, destroyed houses. There is a fear that all that can come back. But we get up and say, “It is not going to happen. Our faith is not in that these are beautiful words, Our faith is in what the Bible says, “Whosoever God set free he will be free indeed.” And they look at us with their eyes wide open. We say, “It is not because someone is strong and someone is weak. Bible says, “Whosoever God set free is free indeed.” If Slavyansk was liberated by the Ukrainian army, then there will be fear. But as it is God liberated Slavyansk. That is why do not be afraid of anything.

We saw that during war time money and knowing powerful people do not matter, nothing like that is of no significance. What matters immensely during war time is if you know Him and if you have with Him such relationships that you are able to hear His voice, and He just shows you what to do, how to do it.

Moscow – the Third Rome

Documentary film, where a detailed study of the history of evangelical Christians in Russia in the bosom of the official church, since the beginning of X century presented. What were the first monasteries and how the monastic life impacted statehood in Russia? How Christian church was able to survive the Tatar-Mongol invasion? For what ideas in peacetime in Russia tens of thousands of people were killed? How the church became a lever in a secular state? Why the answers to these questions are concealed in our days?

The film about the history of evangelical Christianity in Russia in 12 – 16 centuries features the famous Slavic historians, the current Patriarch of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Filaret, Journalist of the first national channel of Russia Maxim Shevchenko, Acting President of Ukraine in 2014 Alexander Turchinov, Professor UNISA Johannes Reimer, a writer, a political scientist from the United States Michael Morgulis and other public and politicians of the United States, Europe and the CIS.


Many historical scenes, interesting respondents, documented facts, raising concerns requiring global attention of the Christian world – all this is in a new documentary film of the “UGOL” studio – “Moscow – Third Rome”.

The second documentary historical film by “UGOL” studio is about history of Christianity during the XII and XVI century in Russia. The film is a series of ” The Slavic Nations’ Search for God.” info@ashevchenko.org

The Way of Redemption from Diseases

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom 10:9-10 KJV).

To confess with one’s lips and to believe with one’s heart is an important law of the Lord’s power operating in our lives. These are two components which, being combined, produce a mighty power of healing. Let’s recollect how Israelites conquered Jericho, the first fortress in the promised land. They won it not by their force, but by their lips. They went around the fortress 7 times, shouted by the word of the Lord, and the fortress collapsed.

Let us look at an ordinary fire extinguisher. It could sit in one place for years without changing its position. But it takes just to pull its chip out, and two its components will be combined together and a mighty force of fire-extinguishing foams will break forth out of it.

The same is in our lives. We should combine confession with our lips and faith with our hearts in order to release the mighty force of redemption from illnesses.

“For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation {sozo}” (Rom 10:9-10 KJV).

COMBINING CONFESSION AND FAITH IN PRESENT TIMES

 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom 10:9-10 KJV).

When I got saved the brother who presented the Gospel to me, told me how he got rid from leukemia (cancer of blood) by the power of the Lord. When doctors diagnosed leukemia and told him that he had very little time left to live, he was seized with strong fear. His Mother informed him that what their relative heard. This relative lived in a remote city. She heard that people were being cured from any illness through repentance. That brother right away got in the car and drove to that city to find that church where people recovered from any disease. When he found the church of the born again people of the Lord, they told him these precious words of Christ, that it is necessary to confess Jesus as the Lord and believe in your heart that the Father raised Him from the dead, as it is written: “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom 10:9-10 KJV).

That brother did so and came back home completely healed.

This law of the Lord’s power he relayed to me. And I had been saved from pernicious alcohol addiction by the operation of these two components of the Lord’s power. I had to confess Jesus as my Lord and to believe that God had raised Him from the dead. When these two components were incorporated in my heart, the Lord’s power came out, and I had been transformed from a child of the devil into a child of the Lord. As it is written:

«But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (Joh 1:12-13 KJV)

Later I shared this method of salvation with many people. Redemption method through combining confession Jesus as the Lord and belief in one’s heart that God raised Him from the dead. Mighty force of the love of God changed lives of these people. For more than 20 years I have been preaching the Gospel to people about this power of the Lord’s love. I saw with my own eyes how more than 300 alcoholics, 12 epileptics, 17 cancer patients were healed miraculously without doctors or drugs. It is so pleasant to see, how saving power of the Lord operates practically in life. That is what it means to combine two components of spiritual forces in human lives:

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom 10:9-10 KJV).

THE FURTHER USE OF THE POWER OF THE LORD IN TWO CONPONENTS

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom 10:9-10 KJV).

After being born from the Holy Spirit we receive the Lord’s nature. It contains mighty power, as it is written in the Holy Scriptures:

 «17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

 20 Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us” (Eph 3:17-20 KJV)

The power of the Lord in our hearts! As we read: NOW UNTO HIM THAT IS ABLE TO DO EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THAT WE ASK OR THINK, ACCORDING TO THE POWER THAT WORKETH IN US! We need to learn how to use this power of the Lord. And this power through these two components should grow in us, as the grain of wheat planted in good soil. Those should bring up 30, 60 and 100 fold return of the power and love of the Lord. By this power I got healed from many illnesses.

However, there is a difference in healing of babies and young men in the Lord. Two components of the spiritual forces suffice for a baby: 1) confessions of Christ as the Lord and 2) faith that God raised Him from the dead. In the life of young men three components should operate already. As it is written:

«12 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.

 13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one” (1 John 2:12-13 KJV).

In the process of spiritual growth there are children, young men and fathers. As we see, young men differ from the children by overcoming the wicked one. So two components suffice for the children in applying the power of the Lord: confessing Jesus as their Lord with their lips and faith that God raised Him from the dead. For young men those two components are not enough. For them it is necessary to have the third component – resisting the devil.

1.  Confessions of the Christ by the Lord.

2.  Beliefs that God has revived from the dead.

3.  Resisting the devil.

Here is how it operates in real life. A woman came to our church. She had two serious illnesses: very strong depression (she had been treated for 12 years) and breast cancer (with it she had been struggling for several years). She confessed Christ Jesus as her Lord, believed that God resurrected Him from the dead, and right there immediately she received liberation from depression. She got completely changed in front of us. Before that she had been very depressed, with the darkened face, and after repentance she stood before us cheerful and looked ten years younger. But the breast cancer did not disappear. She attended church and continued to be treated by doctors.

Sovereign God

Bill Pepper and his wifeI knew I was called to the jungles of Peru. I came to a place. There was a girl who was called to Peru. She was asking God, how will it work? She knew that a single girl is not going to go to the jungles alone. God gave her the answer, “pimienta”, which is “pepper”, my name in Spanish. We were the same age, single, had same doctrinal beliefs from the Bible, the same vision of God, called to the same place – to the jungles of Peru. What are the odds? It was the only address in Lima I had. I did not know this girl existed… Young people, marry the will of God!

Amazing Phenomenon in Nature

In May we had frosts two nights in a row, temperature was 27 degrees. Our apple-trees and strawberries were in bloom. The day after the frost two apple-trees, strawberries and their blossoms were in a fine condition (see photo).

Яблонька не пострадала от морозаЦвет клубники не пострадал от мороза

And leaves on the third apple-tree and the blossoms of the magnolia were frozen (see on photo). What was the difference?

Цвет магнолии поврежден заморозком Листья яблони повреждены заморозком

I remembered how our apostle Daniel Rodes heard about approach of a frost and told his daughter to pray for their strawberries in bloom. When he came home after work, he decided to pray over the strawberry, and understood that somebody already prayed for it. He asked who prayed. It turned out, his daughter did it as he told her.

Their strawberries survived the frost perfectly. This example inspired me. I prayed in faith over our two apple trees on which there were blossoms, and over the strawberries, and all was good. For the third apple-tree I did not pray, because on it there were no bloom. And I had simply forgotten about the magnolia, and its bloom was lost.

My husband began to sprinkle apple-trees in the middle of day (he had heard that this way gardeners keep orange trees from frost), but I asked him to rely on God’s power and protection, he agreed, repented in not believing God, and switched off the water. We saw God’s power at work. I also photographed what became from a frost with the hosta leaves.

Листья функии повреждены заморозком

Glory to our wonderful and faithful Lord! He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (Mat 7:7-8 KJV)

From Christianity History in Russia

        «Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations:
ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee» (Deut. 32:7).

These are one of the last words that Moses said to the people Israel before his ascension on mountain Nebo. But they have not lost their value until now. We will look for the history of the Russian Reformation, Protestantism and Adventism in ancient times belonging to Kiev Russia, then the Moscow Russia, then to the USSR and during the present time belonging to the countries, formed as a result of disintegration of the USSR.

Before speaking about the appearance and development of the Russian Reformation, it is necessary to touch on the origin of Christianity in Russia.

The history of Russia prior to Christianity is poorly studied, because the first historians wrote no earlier than in 11th centuries. And about events in the 9th and 10th centuries, except for few written Greek rolls, the only sources are oral national legends of dubious reliability since they were exposed to fiction and changes. Thus only with the arrival of Christianity did the Russian people receive strong bases for creation of the state and civil life.

The history testifies that Christianity arrived on the territory of Russia in 1st century at the time of the apostles. The first mention of it is found in Paul’s message to Colossians: “Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.” (Col. 3:11). Listing those who are renewed in knowledge of the Christ, Apostle Paul mentions also Scythians, eastern Slavs who were living on the Northern Black Sea Coast, along the banks of the Dnieper River. Perhaps, it could mean that among Scythians of that time there were converts. Paul knew about Scythians as about a people, but was the Gospel known to Scythians? It is possible, since they conducted extensive trade with Greece and other countries. Most likely they had not accepted it, preferring the pagan religion, and, probably for this reason this huge ancient state and its people suddenly disappeared. The Goths, in the 3rd century crushed Scythia, and for a few centuries in these territories lived isolated Slavic, Turkic and other tribes which were united into Kiev Russ later.

The religion of Slavs consisted in adoration of nature, in worship of the sun, water, the sky, the earth, wind, trees and birds. Their religious notions were partly expressed in the form of idols. They did not have temples and priests; therefore their religion was not ubiquitous. Also Slavs did not have ideas about existence of life after death and trusted in magic.

Orthodox theologians claim Russian Christianity as a phenomenon more ancient, than it actually was. They relate to 1 century AD and connect with missionary activity in the Eastern Europe apostle Andrey Pervozvanny [the First called]. In Old Russian annals it is mentioned that apostle Andrey, the pupil of the Christ, travelling across the Dnieper in the middle of the 1st century, preached the Gospel to Scythians. He founded the first Christian communities on coast of Black sea and among northern Slavs along Dnieper.

However, concerning this testimony the opinions of church historians differ. Н. M. Karamzin, quoted in «Russian State Stories» concerning this story, observed: “However, knowing people doubt the truthfulness of this Andrey’s travel”.

The first list «The story of temporary years», the so-called Most ancient document of 1039, and also the Initial document of 1095 and «Reading about Boris and Gleb” by Nestor the Chronicler directly declare that apostles “did not go” to Russia and that in our lands they “did not visit”. But since 1116 Vladimir Monomah, the son of Vsevolod Jaroslavich, ordered to Sylvester, the abbot of the Vydubitsky monastery, to include «The story of temporary years» Russian variant of a legend about apostolic mission of Andrey Pervozvanny [the First called]. Since then stories about visits by the apostle of the land Russia were included in all subsequent annalistic copies.

This way a story about the travels of apostle Andrey from Crimea to Rome through Ladoga appeared. According to this version, having stopped on a lodging for the night on hills on which Kiev subsequently has been built, the apostle, according to the statement of the Chronicler, climbed the mountains, blest them and set up a cross there. Various medieval sources speak of sacred Andrey’s further travel to Novgorod where he erected the cross near the present village Gruzino on the bank of Volkhov River, to Ladoga Lake and to island Valaam where he supposedly established a stone cross and destroyed temples of the pagan gods Veles and Perun.

The truthfulness of apostle Andrey working in the territory of the future Russia was put under doubt even by some Orthodox Church historians. According to professor A.V.Kartashev by means spreading the legend about Andrey the Byzantine church was solving two problems:

1. To protect their independence from claims of Rome and to prove the equivalence to Rome (Andrey was the older brother of Apostle Peter);

2. To provide to itself whenever possible domination over all churches of the East. “Byzantium willingly supported legends about Apostle Andrey’s preaching in those countries where they existed (Armenia, Georgia) and even tried to impart similar legends in the northern countries (Moravia, Russia) on which its influence was spread”

Further in Russia Christian traditions began to develop. To Christianity the princely authority figures come also. The appearance of the first Christians among the higher feudal nobility and merchant class seems logical because of the following reasons:

1. In carrying out foreign policy feudal sovereigns usually entered into treaties with kings and princes of the nearby countries. When they were making treaties the big role was played by inter-dynastic marriages. Russian pagan princes and their sons had been stopped from marrying the princesses from the European houses, which accepted Christianity. During the 9th and 10th centuries there was a process of gradual Christianization in the countries the Central Europe, and Southern and Western Europe were Christian even earlier. So in the 10th century Russia was somewhat isolated from a number of the states of Europe.

2. Paganism complicated trade relations with the Christian countries. The Christian clergy related irreconcilably to the pagans. Russian feudal lords were interested in commercial relations with Christian states, in particular, with Byzantium, it was easier for Christian merchants to carry out commercial transactions with the partners from the Christian countries, than with pagan merchants. So the first Russian Christians were merchants.

Christianity even before being accepted officially deeply took root in Russia. For a long time paganism resisted Christianity, but gradually gave way.

For many of years the country was ruled by Princess Olga who has accepted Christianity. In annals of the beginning of 12th century “The story of temporary years”, it is said that in the summer of 959 Princess Olga visited Constantinople, the capital of Byzantium named by Russ as Tzargrad. There she accepted the Christian faith and was baptized. Having come back home, she wished to christen her son Svjatoslav, but he did not want to accept the “new” faith, being afraid to be mocked by his people. Vladimir, the grandson of Princess Olga, seeing the inability of pagan beliefs to unite isolated Slavic tribes and princedoms, decided to accept one of the primitive monotheistic religions.

Некоторые думают, что всё дело в том, чтоб мы были благословенными. Нет, всё дело в том, чтобы мы были преображены. Если вы будете стремиться только к благословениям, и не будете видеть их, то тогда у Вас будет куча вопросов, и вы разочаруетесь. И вы будете использовать свою веру на то, тобы добиться прорыва и благословений, о которых думаете, что в них всё. Нет! Всё дело в том, чтобы вам иметь мир с Богом, сиять ярким светом, ходить в любви и милосердии, творить мир посреди бед и огненных испытаний.

Этот человек закричал на Бога:”Что Ты имеешь в виду, что у меня нет проблемы? Это что – шутка? Мои  дети остались без матери! Моя жена подала на развод! Она в  объятиях другого мужчины!” Бог поворил: “Я тебе сказал точно. У тебя нет проблемы. Твоя жена в беде. А все 5 дней ты только то и делал, что плакал и молился за себя.

Interview with Victor Reznikov

Victor Reznikov – former agent of Russia’s crime detection service, later a successful businessman. Two attempts on Victor’s life were made. The first time in 1993, three machine gun bursts were fired from a distance of 7 meters (23 feet), but yet not one bullet hit him. Four years later an assassin shot 2 times into Victor’s head at point blank range.

Doctors advised his wife Tamara to get ready for his funeral. Between the two attempts to murder him their son was kidnapped by Chechens who threatened to kill him, if the family would not pay 100 million rubles within 3 days…

“After I was shot I saw myself high above 100 feet tall poplar trees. I saw myself below laying on the sidewalk, people bustling around. I was moving upward and ended up in an unusual and very pleasant place. Suddenly I heard a voice, very authoritative and full of love, saying, ‘Stop!'”…

Struggle for Healing and Victory through Jesus

This is a testimony about God’s miracle working power in the heart and the body of one of His children, Brother Mikhail. We are providing actual text of our recent correspondence with this Brother.

March 1, 2013.

Hello sister Tatyana!

Sorry for the long silence, it was difficult to write.
This is my 3d month of going through an ordeal that the Lord allowed for my correction.
Honestly, I don’t know how to pass this trial, I am praying and fasting, but the problem gets worse.
I’m seriously afraid of ending up in a wheelchair… At night I spend hours in prayer…

Because of my carelessness I ruptured, herniated spinal disc, I am having a disability, almost all the time I spend in bed…  I am avoiding a surgery as much as I can, but today got up briefly and suddenly my legs began to numb, no strength… I fainted…
I scared my children, they dragged me to bed…. Not fun…. I came to my senses – again prayed for healing with tears…

I opened my E-mail, and here is your letter [with Ivan Komarov’s message “To receive healing is simple“], may the Lord grant it to be the answer to my prayers!

Again, thanks for the link, I’m going to watch the program!
Mikhail

I (Tatyana) shared my testimony with Mikhail how the Lord healed me from back injury

On March 3, 2013, Mikhail wrote:

I started watching the video on your link, & 5 minutes was enough for me to lay hands on myself and to declare myself healed through the sacrifice of Christ (Isaiah 53). My heart began resisting it, but I strongly kept telling it that according to God’s Truth my spine has been healed already. 20 minutes went by and I fell asleep.

In the morning I felt very good, even took a shower without anyone’s help, and several times I got up on my own. But in the afternoon my condition began to deteriorate rapidly.

I spent the night without sleep, prayed and asked Jesus to reveal to me how the power of God works.

In the morning my family stirred in my heart thanks to God. However, a heavy stone laid on my heart. I talked with my sons and then verses from Job came to my mind. I grabbed my Bible and it opened up to Chapter 32 of Job! I was reading as drinking the living water. “Whom I love I punish, in order to turn away from pride” – Job 36:7-9. Great God in His mercy – He helped me to see my sin! Repentance brought untold relief, even pain let me go, thanks to our Heavenly Father!

It was so easy on my heart, again I laid hands on myself and declared myself healed by the stripes of Christ. This time my heart did not resist, it was delighted. But full recovery has not happened. I will try not to give up, because trials strengthen our faith.

How I was healed from diabetes, high blood pressure, stoke and other diseases

The Lord healeth all your diseases

2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psa 103:1-5 KJV)

When you are almost sixty, illnesses come also. I used to be a very sick person. In our family we had a hereditary illness, sugar diabetes. My grandmother and mother died of this disease. On top of that I had been ill with yellow jaundice so my liver had been quite damaged. I had problems with my digestive tract which manifested themselves by attacks of the acute pains, I felt as if someone was stabbing my abdomen with a sharp knife. I suffered from disease of blood vessels caused by high blood pressure and heart failure. High blood pressure caused headaches, worsening of eye sight until all that ended up in a stroke from which I had a partial paralysis of the right side of my body. I could hardly move, speech was impeded, I could not write or sign my signature. I asked the Lord: “Why did all this happen to me?” The Lord answered that it was for His glory for He would cure me of all these illnesses just like Job. The Lord promised that in my old age I would be completely healthy and my health would be renewed, as an eagle’s. After all, His promises are not an empty word:

12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him. (Psa 92:12-15 KJV)

TRUE KNOWLEDGE LIBERATES

   The Lord asked me, “Leonidas, do you know, that all illnesses come from nerves? And from what does nervousness come from?” The Lord explained to me that nervousness stems from a stream of the old devilish nature (Gal 5,13-25). Our language is full of deadly poison, by which we poison our bodies (James 3:8). Any display of carnal passions and lusts is a dose of deadly poison. People of this world adhere to a fashionable healthy lifestyle, thinking that their health depends only on the nutritious and balanced food. But the Lord specifies that person’s health depends on his speech also:’

15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.
16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man. (Mat 15:15-20 KJV)

After being born again from the Holy Spirit there is not only the new nature of the Spirit of  Christ in us, but also old nature manifests itself with its malicious thoughts, murders, fornications and other nasty things which should be crucified and destroyed. It is written from the Lord:

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (Rom 8:12-14 KJV)

Let’s take as an example just one villainy of our sinful flesh, spiritual murder.

WHAT IS SPIRITUAL MURDER?

“Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him” (1Jo 3:15 KJV). This is hatred.

A Christian thinks that if he physically has not killed anybody, he is not a murderer. But under the law of the Universe hatred is a murder, and the one who does it has no eternal life in him. In our sinful flesh there is a murder, and this diagnosis was made by the Lord. I had it in my heart also.

Once my wife and I went to another city to visit a brother in Christ. Before we left my wife asked me to go online, to look in maps and find the street where this brother lives. But I thought that I approximately knew, where he lived and if I do not find it, I could call him on his cell phone. When we arrived, we got lost. My wife rebuked me that I had not looked on the Internet, and now we had to wander. I stopped and started calling this brother, but he did not pick up the phone. My wife rebuked me again that we would not have had problems if I would have listened to her and looked in Maps. I felt already hurt, and thrown at her: “Why won’t you be silent? I am already nervous even without your intervention, and you keep pouring kerosene on fire!”. But she would not stop and began bringing up many reproaches about my not listening to her here and in the past and as a result we always had problems.

Two Adversaries Got Saved Simultaneously and Independently

 by Kevin Campbell

 In the last couple of weeks we have seen people changed by the Grace of God. The reports of others is that those people went wild when they got changed. It’s amazing what happened. One guy I talked to who got saved a few weeks back. It’s amazing the cycle of what happened. He went into the weight room. Now, we are talking about a fellow that was on fire for the devil to start with. He was on fire for the wrong thing. He was partying. He was getting all decorated up with tattoos etc. like most of the young people now days. If you were to meet him you would have said, “This is somebody I don’t want to be around”. Grace came on this individual with nobody telling him about Jesus.

Did you hear that? Nobody told him about Jesus. He just felt in himself all of a sudden. What causes that? Remember I taught you about Grace. You can’t tell Grace where it can’t go. Grace tells you where to go. It just goes. It comes on who it wants to. You can’t stop it. It can come on your worst enemy, the most ungodly individual, like Saul was. Grace just comes on them and completely changes their world. There is nothing you can do about it. That’s the last person you wanted saved.

 Anyway, he got saved. He gave his heart to the Lord. Now something inside of him is different. He went to the same weight room he had gone to just a couple days before. In comes walking this guy. Just a few weeks before this he had fought with this guy several times. He had been in several fist-fights with this guy. They are both big strapping boys. Young guys about college age. All they do is lift cars for a living. They have big arms. That’s the problem: all muscle and no brain.

This guy walks in that he had been enemies with. In his words, “this stuff like fire was in me. I just started melting. The more I looked at that guy the more I started melting. This stuff in me started twirling me. Before I knew it I was standing right in front of this guy that I had just had a fistfight with a couple weeks ago. He was just looking at me like “what do you want? Are you wanting to fight again or what?”. I said, “Man, I’m sorry, I’m sorry for the way I treated you. I shouldn’t have done what I did.”

The guy said, “What? What happened to you?” He said, “Well, I’ve got Jesus in here now. I feel like I need to apologize to you.” The guy said, “That’s interesting. I just got saved too. When did you get saved?” They got saved the same day. Grace came on them both and they both got saved the same day. He said, “I stopped drinking.” The guy said, “I stopped drinking too. When did you stop drinking?” It was the same day. He said, “I stopped cussing”. He said, “What day was that?” Same day. Grace, the Holy Ghost can do whatever He wants, whenever He wants, to whoever He wants.

While you are sleeping the Holy Ghost is working to save people’s lives. Do you know why you are here today? It is because the Holy Ghost brought you here. You had a divine appointment to be here. I welcome you in the name of Jesus Christ.

Excerpt from Kevin Campbell’s sermon

Truth, Life and Life Mission. December 2012

To Know God and to Know About God

Leonidas Pushkovas, Lithuania

 “…whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace

(Gal 5:4 KJV).

In this teaching we will consider the danger that traps born again Christians when they lose their first love to the Lord and start serving Him, but do it without Him. This thing happened with the entire Galatian church. Instead of walking with the Lord, they moved away to fulfilling of the law. Thus they were left without Christ, have fallen away from grace. We see this same thing in the church of Ephesus, and the Apostle John recorded the Lord’s warning:

1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; 2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: 3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. 4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.” (Rev 2:1-5 KJV).

The church of Ephesus worked for the Lord very diligently, to the point of exhaustion, but the Lord declared a strict warning. If she does not recall where she has fallen from to lose her first love, and will not repent, her candlestick will be removed.

After accepting the power to become the child of the Lord, I joined a Baptist church and with pleasure started serving my Lord and King Jesus Christ. From wonderful personal communion with the Lord came true pleasure. Here is a small testimony.

I caught a cold and laid at home in the dark in my bed. However, in my heart I felt joy. I heard in my heart a hymn to the glory of the Lord. At first I thought that I am myself was singing in my mind. But something was not so: I heard a choir. This hymn was familiar to me, and I joined this choir. A real choir was singing, I was convinced of it; I could participate or not participate in the singing. I tried it for several times and noticed that when I did not sing, the choir continued singing praises to the Lord anyway. Then I noticed one more detail: I could lead this choir. When I sang slowly, the choir sang with me also slowly. When I sang faster, the choir obediently followed me. I was glad and thanked the Lord for this wonderful and magnificent phenomenon in my life.

What happened afterwards was even more interesting. I was not sleeping, just lying in bed in the dark. Suddenly in a vision I saw as if the door to other room was opened a little and through the crack of the opened door a bright light shined. From the light a chain of shining balls were rolling. In perplexity I thought: perhaps, they are angels? But why are they so small? I wanted to find it out and asked the Lord to give me a sign: if they are angels let them heal me from the congestion I felt in my chest. In a moment the congestion of cold disappeared, and I was healed instantly.

The next day I was able tell to my brothers in Christ about my wonderful personal communion with the Lord and how I had been cured from cold in a flash. This testimony remains in my memory as one most tender and precious. In my life there have been many similar cases of wonderful communication with the Lord.

These wonderful experiences continued for three more years. However, I started noticing that the love and joy from the wonderful presence of the Lord started gradually evaporating from my life. Frequent irritations returned, delightful infillings of the Holy Spirit stopped along with the miracles from the presence of the Lord. Something was wrong with my salvation. I began watching older brothers and observed that they were in the same position because they loved those who loved them, but could not love their opponents. In conflict situations brothers quarreled and could not quickly forgive their offenders. It was the same as with people in the world who are not born again.

Once we provided a temporary residence in our family for two missionaries from America, a married couple. They were in the Lord for 30 years, according to their own testimony. For us, newborn babies, they were as angels of God. Both of them knew the Bible very well, they were respectful and polite. The wife perfectly played piano, and in both sonorous and pleasant voice eulogized the Lord by singing psalms. It seemed to us that they has reached perfection in the knowledge of love to God and to people. But it turned out that the achievement of love is demonstrated not in a quiet setting but in a conflict. We were witnesses of a fight between the spouses in which they behaved no better than enraged women at a market place. It was the first time in my life when I started pondering about our correctness in the way of salvation because the Holy Scripture says, without love to the Lord we are not needed in eternity (1 Cor 13,1-3). I remember that at those moments I thought to myself: “If I also will be the same in a conflict situation after thirty years of serving the Lord, then everything these teachers taught me, is a lie and hypocrisy.” Later these assumptions proved to be true, when the Lord gave back to us our lost love and taught us to distinguish the curse of the law from the Lord’s grace. We will talk about it in the following short testimony.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CURSE OF THE LAW AND GOD’S GRACE

 “…whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace” (Gal 5:4 KJV).

A brother in Christ came to me and started being indignant about his wife not submitting to him, as to the Lord1. She grumbles and opposes him all the time. It is a so-called “curse of the law” – to demand submission to the law from another person. Continue reading To Know God and to Know About God
