Hello and welcome to our podcast on the Election!

Week 3 of the Election Podcast (Chosen You!)

Today we are in week three of our special podcast on the decree of election and Calvinism.

The key takeaway of the reading today in John MacArthur’s “Biblical Doctrine” book is the reference to 2 Thess. 2:13:

But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth. – 2 Thessalonians 2:13

An amazing statement that God has chosen us from the beginning. This sentiment was also discussed in last week’s Podcast.

The thought that God chose us for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit is both amazing and reassuring. We were chosen to be apart of God’s elect from the beginning of time. We have been saved by no working of our own. The saving grace that has saved us is solely from the work of God.

A Beautiful Bride to Christ

electionI also discuss today the importance of being a beautiful Bride of Christ. The Church today is the Bride. We need to strive to be a beautiful and Holy Bride to Christ as He has saved us.

We cannot simply begin to understand or grasp why Jesus Christ died for us and bore the wrath of God. Jesus Christ took the punishment. Jesus Christ has saved us through His love. Why would we not want to strive to be a great Bride of Christ?

We must diligently study and be stewards of the Holy Bible. The Holy Spirit flows through us and we must continue to study the Scriptures for God’s Will. I am not sure of the Will God intends to do through me, but I can take comfort in knowing that I am apart of His Elect!

God bless

Starting 1John 4 and Discussing False Teachers (Podcast Episode)

Click Here to Listen to our Discussion!

Welcome to the podcast!

Today we are beginning our study into 1 John 4. These first six verses today are VERY clear on our duty and mission to root out false teachers. John gives us the knowledge to determine which is a true gospel and false gospel.

Who/what are false teachers and false doctrines today? We discuss John’s rules on rooting out these falsehoods from the Antichrist.

I go into a discussion on how we need to be vigilant in our everyday lives. As true brothers and sisters who have the Holy Spirit living within us, we know how to root out these evildoers and know what we need to stray away from. I discuss how we should stray away from pagan television shows and Netflix specials. Stay away from Rated R television, even if it is a difficult parting. The pain is worth it to glorify our Creator!

We also need to stray away from false teachings or cults… yes, Roman Catholicism. I would encourage you to watch the YouTube videos where R.C. Sproul and John MacArthur discuss Roman Catholicism if you want to receive more knowledge on this religion.

I loved recording this podcast today and I hope you tune in next Tuesday as we continue our study on the Election! I also plan on a “week in review” podcast to start airing Sunday afternoons.

God bless
