New Believers

 

PLEASE READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE

Ok, so now you have prayed for salvation and received and ACCEPTED CHRIST As your savior, and Messiah, NOW WHAT???

Though my life as a believer in Christ, I always read or hear about the “Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20  it reads like this…

Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV)

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Mark 16:15-18 (KJV)

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. (KJV)

 

So Even though most pastors and ministers, and preachers share this….   They Don’t ALWAYS Have the 1 on 1 time nor do their OWN Leaders of the church they are a part of…

This is not to say they are bad people or Christians as believers in Christ… but as I have experienced like others first hand, while rebuilding my own faith and visiting churches for more than a few times and a few years as well…  one someone accepts Christ,  they are very excited and happy, and joyful,  help you get a bible if that, get you involved in a bible study if that.  But none  that I have been apart of, EVER HELPS you find someone in the Church they are apart of to help you GROW  as a new believer and mentor you more of a 1 on 1 environment…

When you read the Bible… the MOST that Jesus Christ Taught closely were his 12 HAND PICKED Disciples…   12!   Not 200 not 20 in a bible study 1 time a week, and they leave with no contact….  and in the beginning of your new found faith in christ you will have questions and need the 1 on 1 help understanding the bible to get you started, besides any bible study and church sermons....

The Disciples never left Jesus Christ Without Reason….   Jesus as you may read, taught some of the disciples more closely  1 on 1 or 1  on 2 or 3 disciples..

As a New Believer, a believer returning to Faith in Christ, this matters, and it matters to help us be stronger in Christ and also preachers and teachers to other!!.. especially now when a lot of believers, DO BELIEVE WE ARE IN THE END TIMES!!

Here is what the KJV Bible says those with a new life in Christ

Ephesians 4:14-32 (KJV)

New Life in Christ

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

20 But ye have not so learned Christ;

21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:

22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

27 Neither give place to the devil.

28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

30 And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

 

NOW EVERYONE SAYS TO READ THE BOOK OF JOHN FIRST... BUT WE WOULD RECCOMMEND A STEP FURTHER  TO START... READ JOHN 3:1-18  ESPECIALLY JESUS TALKING TO NICODEMUS   you cand and should share this part with family and friends   and after you read this, then start over reading the WHOLE Book of John to start with...

 

So what are some smart choices to make to start with… here are a few we can think of..

AFTER YOU ARE SAVED…  Now what, Here is a list of what you need to look for…

  1. Find a Church new you, that is BIBLE BASED, Christ Doctrine Beliefs. (use the internet look at the church website seek its beliefs and Doctrine page) and read it, if it doesn’t align with the bible and what Christ teaches and the WHOLE BIBLE Says , then do not go to it, even if the people are friendly, keep searching and finding that church that does…   visit a church at least 1 time, if your new holy spirit leads you to stay then again make sure that the church is bible based scripture)
  2. As you find the church, see what kind of Ministries they have… whether it be mens or womens ministries, if you have kids do they have anything for them…   call and find out what ministries they DO NOT LIST. Such as multimedia,  web based audio etc  if you find a calling to serve a church as you grow you want to find that area you are comfortable with and help… even worshipping (music)
  3. This should be #1 but find out how EASY IT IS to contact and get a response from the Sr. Pastor. Minister…   this is important because THEY LEAD THE CHURCH…  know where they stand with their beliefs, with the leadership roles and who is acceptable to be leaders as they grow into that role …
  4. Is the Church Focused on sharing ALL OF GODS WORD… not to about the new testament and Jesus Christ and saving souls like yours, But sermons on HEAVEN AND HELL,  sermons  and preaching on the End Times (which we are living in), 
  5. Is the Church involved Out reaching to others
  6. Is the Church more involved with helping the poor and needy as Jesus Christ was.

Is the Church a praying Church?   Meaning is there a prayer ministry or weekly prayer gatherings for what would be known as “Prayer Warriors”

ArmorofGod

In Our daily Life we are dealing with every aspect that will try and bring us down.  What is recommended is to READ THIS Scripture EVERY Morning and pray for awareness, NOT everyone does this but as Christians we need to, as it will also protect us from those issues and people who wish to do harm to us.  This Scripture is good for other people to learn and understand that the Lord is there to guide us. 

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

Hello,
These days as Believers in Christ, New, Returning to our faith, and those strong in faith, must be cautious of who we trust and listen to.  Many ministers, preachers, and those who use "prophet" can be wolves in sheeps clothing. 
NO ONE IS PERFECT But Jesus Christ
As we are in the end times there are more and more who going of the track as leaders who preach God’s word.  these leaders in the church or elsewhere, may change their doctrine to accommodate others today... like the LBGTQ (and allow them to be in the position of leadership which the bible says is not allowed. (Members of the congregation is fine), this is a primary example but there are many more
They do so to include those who shouldn’t be leaders, those that God almighty and Jesus Christ did not intend to, according to the Holy Bible. 
Here is what the old testament says about Prophets
 
 
 
Deuteronomy 18:15-22
15 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
16 According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
17 And the Lord said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.
18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken?
22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
King James Version (KJV)
Now you can see the difference between verses 17-19  AND 20-22
So please keep in mind these days who you listen to as believers in Christ, IF they do not pass this test then be serious and in the future ignore them, nut also share with others how they may deceives the Lords Flock, which we all are….

        Armor of GOD

 

To Start off With these Scriptures could be, and should be used as a morning prayer. The Reason is in these days ESPECIALLY, many believers in Christ believe that we are living in the ENDTIMES.

With the endtimesat hand, all need to protect themselves from  evil thoughts, through prayer and the word of God. 

We also should be sharing this and using this as a way to stay strong in our faith and teach others including any kids so that they may grow  stronger in their faith in word of god.

 

I find that to a degree these scriptures are used in a way to help in these various ways and in a prayer form especially every morning.  someone once said using these scriptures through prayer EVERY Morning makes your day go better as you ward off any thoughts of a sinful day.

 

 

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

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

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

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

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

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
