    • Following Christ: All In!


      from Grace Baptist Church / Added

      In the preceding paragraph, Peter has argued that the triumph of Christ – over death and Satan – is the ultimate grounds of “the hope that is in us” (3:15). This triumph has been pressed into the life of the church through the practice of baptism, by which individuals “act out” the fact that they too deserved judgment but have been rescued from judgment in Christ, and raised to walk in a new way of life! This new way of life begins with a new way of thinking that sees suffering for doing good not as evidence that God has abandoned us, but as proof that we are no longer dominated by sin and selfishness. Rather, we have thrown off our “used to be” and found great purpose, satisfaction and joy in living out God’s will in a broken world. All of this flows from the treasure that is the Gospel … that message from God that one day He will bring justice and settle all the accounts, vindicating His Name and granting the eternal reward of life to all who have committed their lives and destiny into His hands.

              2 Plays / / 0 Comments

              In contrast to those who teach that the Christian life is supposed to be one of abundance, happiness and absence of trials and difficulties, we see that following the Lord is hard. However, He will give us the grace to persevere through whatever difficulties we will face. We see: * What the Abundant Life Movement is * Why those who teach this believe that it is Biblical * Why we believe that the Bible teaches something entirely different.

              • Our Rescue: In Christ, By Christ


                from Grace Baptist Church / Added

                This text ranks as one of the most difficult to understand and explain in all of the New Testament. Yet overall the point is clear: those who suffer for righteousness, like Noah, must recognize that God has not forsaken them, but will both save them from the judgment they deserve and from the enemies that surround them. For Noah, the means of rescue were the Ark and the water. For Christ-followers today the means of rescue is Christ, through His death and resurrection that is radically symbolized and impressed upon our hearts through the act of baptism. Peter reminds his readers that even as Noah was brought to safety through water, so also do the waters of baptism symbolize our salvation through Jesus Christ, who now is at God’s right hand, with all power and authority subject to Him.

                • Major blizzard buries northeast under 30 inches of snow (Second Coming Watch Update #306)

                  Released: February 11, 2013 By: Daniel Whyte III 1. According to The Los Angeles Times, a monstrous blizzard carrying hurricane-force winds pounded the Northeast over the weekend, dropping over 30 inches of snow in many areas and causing as many as 700,000 homes and businesses to lose power. Even as snow-clogged roads gave residents no choice but to heed official advice to stay indoors, the storm continued its path from New York City through New England, where snow totals reached up to 40 inches in some areas. Nine deaths have been reported. 2. According to The Times of Israel, the Lebanese Army and the terrorist group Hez-boll-ah are reportedly upping their preparedness in the southern part of Lebanon in response to flyovers by the Israeli Air Force. Lebanese officials reportedly fear that an Israeli strike, similar to Israel's alleged strike on Syrian targets last month, is imminent in light of multiple "mock raids." Many suspect that Israel may be preparing to take action in retaliation for the bus bombing in Bulgaria that killed five Israelis. Bulgaria has released a report blaming Hez-boll-ah for the attack. 3. According to China Aid News, Cao Nan, a 39-year-old charity worker, was arrested in south-eastern China after meeting with other Christians in a city park to sing hymns and preach. Mr. Cao, who worships at an unofficial local 'house-church', said he had been accused of "falsely using the name of Christianity to harm the social order" -- a charge which he rejects. He says that the government is "worried that if they allow Christianity to grow, its influence will surpass that of the Communist Party, win the public's favor and challenge the governance of the ruling party." Mr. Cao has launched a lawsuit against the government and says he hopes it would encourage other Christians to speak out against religious persecution. 4. According to The Associated Press, secret studies from the U.S. Defense Department cast doubt on whether a multi-billion dollar missile defense system planned for Europe will ever be able to protect the U.S. from Iranian missiles as intended. Military officials say they believe the problems can be overcome and are moving forward with plans. But proposed fixes could be difficult. Even though the stated goal of the system is to shoot down Iranian missiles aimed at Europe and the U.S., Russia opposes the plan because it suspects that the system could be used to shoot down its own missiles as well. 5. According to World Net Daily, an Egyptian court is forcing two Coptic Christian boys, ages 10 and 9, to stand trial for "insulting the Quran." The boys were arrested in September after a man reported them for playing in a trash pile that included pages of the Quran. Press reports indicate that the man who filed the charges was able to generate public outrage which led to the intimidation of Christians in a nearby village. The American Center for Law and Justice said that there is a real concern that Christians in Egypt are facing greater danger each day from a radical Islamic government. The Bible says in Revelation 1:7: "Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen." You can read these stories in more detail and get more prophecy-related news at SecondComingHerald.com

                  • Chinese ship aims missile radar at Japanese ship (Second Coming Watch Update #304)

                    Released: February 6, 2013 By: Daniel Whyte III 1. According to The New York Times, Japan lodged a formal protest with the Chinese government on Tuesday after it said a Chinese warship directed a radar used to aim missiles at a Japanese warship, in a new escalation of a standoff over disputed islands. The Japanese defense minister said that a Chinese navy frigate had directed its fire-control radar at a Japanese destroyer in the incident on January 30 near the islands in the East China Sea. The uninhabited island group has been controlled by Japan for decades, but claimed by China and also Taiwan. 2. According to The Associated Press, Syria's defense minister has signaled that his country won't hit back at Israel over an airstrike inside Syria. He claimed the Israeli raid was actually in retaliation for his regime's offensive against rebels he called "tools" of the Jewish state. The remarks suggested that Syria's military options might be severely constrained after 22 months of fighting an uprising that has depleted its weapons and stretched its troops thin. 3. According to Ynet News, the Palestinian Prime Minister has warned that his state is on the brink of economic collapse. Sa-lam Fay-yad said on Tuesday that "The situation in which we must wait for Israel's prime minister to decide on a monthly basis whether or not money is transferred to us, places us in an impossible situation. If Israel doesn't come to its senses, we will be in danger of collapsing." Israel had previously decided to suspend the transfer of tax funds it collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority. 4. According to The Associated Press, Iranian President Mah-moud Ah-ma-di-ne-jad arrived in Egypt for the first visit by an Iranian leader in more than three decades, marking a historic departure from years of frigid ties between the two regional heavyweights. His three-day visit, which is centered around an Islamic summit, is the latest sign of improved relations between the countries since the 2011 uprising in Egypt. Such a visit would have been unthinkable under Mubarak, who was a close ally of the U.S. and shared Washington's deep suspicions of Tehran. 5. According to The China Aid Association, government persecution of Christians and churches in mainland China deteriorated for the seventh straight year in 2012. The defining characteristic of 2012's persecution was the government's stated intention of eradicating house churches. Based on information collected by ChinaAid on 132 persecution cases, the number of people sentenced jumped 125% over the previous year and the incidents of persecution rose 42% from 2011. China Aid, however, says it is "cautiously optimistic because despite the escalating persecution, the church is still standing firm." The Bible says in 1 John 2:28: "And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming."
