says: "Relief from the divine affliction was all they cared about. It is ever thus with the reprobate. With Pharaoh, as each fresh plague descended upon Egypt he sent for Moses and begged him to pray for its removal, and as soon as it was removed he hardened his heart and continued to defy the most High
. Unless God is pleased to sanctify directly to our souls His chastisements, they profit us not. No matter how severe His judgments or how long they be protracted, man is never softened thereby unless God performs a work of grace within him. "And they gnawed their tongues for pain, and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds." (Rev. 16:10,11)....Nowhere is the awful depravity of human nature more grievously displayed than at this very point....A later prophet in Israel complained of the people in his day for manifesting this vile temper: "O Lord, are not Thine eyes upon the truth? Thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; Thou has consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock," (Jer. 5:3).
From this we may see how utterly absurd and erroneous are the teachings of Romanists on purgatory and of Universalists on hell. The imagined fire of purgatory or the real torments of Hell possess no purifying effect, and the sinner under the anguish of his sufferings will continually increase in wickedness and accumulate wrath to all eternity."

says: Luk 14:34 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?
Luk 14:35 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

says: "WHY are you watching YouTube, and NOT reading your bible?"
For the same reason that people go to church, listen to a sermon, but also never crack their Bible to see if what the pastor is saying lines up. Many churches encourage this behavior from their members. And it's been happening since the beginning. The Spirit of Truth is critical to survive the tremendous onslaught of deceit I see happening in the world right now. Christians are being heavily tested.

says: In a few of James Knox's sermons - he said how he's been approached by people every now and then over how they saw YT videos of people saying we're going through the 7 year great tribulation period. Knox's response was, "WHY are you watching YouTube, and NOT reading your bible?". It seems like a lot of these YT "Christians" live in the comfort of their home, drinking a glass of cold ice tea, while having the power of that built-in mic at their fingertips. But en yet, like Knox said, these same people wouldn't stand a chance if they had a power outage in their area for a mere weekend.View Shout History
