The TRUE Definition of "Religion"



















Religion is the godless spiritual philosophy or ideology that attempts to replace Almighty God and ETERNAL REALITY based on the fallen subjective perception of an unregenerate man (John 3:3-7, Rom. 8:5-8, 1 Cor. 2:14). A man or peoples "religion" will NOT acknowledge the ETERNAL RIGHTNESS of the Person of Almighty God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Their Saving propitiation found in the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:19-21, Rom. 1:18-32, 10:2-4).

Religion is the godless spiritual philosophy or ideology that attempts to replace Almighty God and ETERNAL REALITY based on the fallen perception of an unregenerate man.

A man's "religion" seeks to answer the basic needs of the human heart, which is the longing to fill an ETERNAL void that exists in the absence of a right relationship to its ETERNAL Creator in SPIRIT and TRUTH (Eccl 3:11, John 4:24). This godless spiritual ideology (i.e., religion) is prevalent throughout the multitudinous cultures and various societies of Adam's fallen race (Rom. 1:18-32). All human history attests to this fact throughout the last 4,200 years since the scattering of people over all the earth after the Tower of Babel that mankind would rather hold on to their fallen "spiritual" religious ideologies of godlessness than to adhere to the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS and ETERNAL REALITY of time and ETERNITY (John 3:19-21, Rom. 1:18-32, 10:2-4).

REALITY

As humanity develops and out-works these ideologies and philosophies in time, the ETERNAL spiritual absolutes (truths) and natural (moral) laws of Almighty God never change, nor will they ever. That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation (Hebrews 6; 18a). For I am the LORD, I change not (Malachi 3:6a). My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips (Psalm 89:34). Almighty God and His Word can be totally relied upon.

For about 4,200 years since the Tower of Babel dispersion humanity has been out-working their godless, unrighteous spiritual  ideologies and philosophies and have been reaping the horrific consequences ever since.
.
In Romans 1:18-32 Almighty God tells us what happened after Babel and what were the end results thereof. Humanity had willingly chosen the abandonment of TRUTH and REALITY for a godless delusion and a lie. These offspring of Noah's sons had replaced and exchanged the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God with unrighteousness. For about 4,200 years since the Tower of Babel dispersion humanity has been out-working their godless, unrighteous spiritual  ideologies and philosophies and have been reaping the horrific consequences ever since (Rom. 1:18-32). The consequences and end results of a godless existence are vanity and ETERNAL damnation (Eccl. 1:14; Rom. 3:23, Rev. 20:11-15). The REALITY of this life is that Almighty God sent His Son (John 3:16-17; Rom. 8:3-4) to redeem man and restore a right relationship between man and Himself (John 3:3-7, 16-17, 1 John 2:2, 4:10). That is ETERNAL REALITY and not some man made "religious" statement.

Almighty God's Word states;

God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6).

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth (John 17:17).

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever (Psalm 119:160).

Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? To know Him is to know REALITY. To know Him is to know Truth. May you be sure that your "ideology" and "REALITY" is rooted in the absolute REALITY of Almighty God and His never-changing Word. Your whole ETERNITY depends on it.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Merry Christmas From The Ignorant Fishermen!

.
 













Beloved, at Christmas we are reminded of the ETERNAL message of “That God so love the world - John 3:16-17 and all that we ever would and could  need - as fallen humanity - is found IN the lovely Person of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world (Rom. 5:12-19, 10:4, 1 Cor. 1:30).

But what a great many miss at Christmas is the precious promises of the Lord Jesus Christ that are yet to be fulfilled!

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this (Isaiah 9:6-7)”

Our future is found in the uncompromising promises of Almighty God and in His Son the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor.1:30).

As children of Almighty God (John 1:12, Rom. 8:14,16, Gal. 3:26, 1 John 3:1,2), we can REJOICE not only that our transgressions against Almighty God's  ETERNAL absolutes of RIGHTEOUSNESS have been pardoned and removed (1 John 2:2), but also in the future blessings and promises that are yet to come! The of redemption of our vile bodies (1 Cor. 1:30, 15:42-58), the coming Kingdom of Heaven (Zech. 14:9-21, Matt. 25:34) and ETERNITY future (Rev. 21-22).
.
My dearly beloved of the Lord, this Christmas as we reflect on the absolute wonderment of the incarnation of God the Son (John 1:14, 1 Tim. 3:16, Heb. 10:1-14), may we also greatly REJOICE knowing that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! My beloved our future has only just begun!!

We here at the Ignorant Fishermen Blog wish each one of you ALL of Almighty God's HIGHEST and BEST (God's perfect will) and a blessed biblical Christmas!

The Kingdom of Heaven truly is at hand!

The Christmas Reality in Light of Today's Crises



















In light of today's many different faceted trials and plagues that are effecting our society and country's well being, may we tune into the reality of the glorious Christmas message that Almighty God has given to all people!

This Christmas Season, remember the REALITY of Christmas! A Savior was born, for you and for me! (
Luke 2:1-20, Matt 1:18-25, 2:1-15, John 1:14)
.

A Savior was born, for you and for me!

The TRUE GIFT of Christmas is that Almighty God has provided a Savior to deliver Adam's fallen race from their
sins (i.e., the transgressions against Almighty God's ETERNAL righteous standards).
.
Do you believe? Do you really believe? Or do you just celebrate a "Traditional Christmas".

What better way of celebrating this Christmas Season than to know the Savior of Christmas and the reality of the season.
.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:16,17)

God's Christmas Gift

This Christmas, may your heart be open to receive the GIFT of the Lord Jesus Christ and to enjoy the reality of the season. A Savior was born and GIVEN to meet our deepest needs, here in Time and for Eternity.
.
Rejoice in the reality! Rejoice in the goodness of Almighty God! Rejoice that our sins can be forgiven! Rejoice that Almighty God has a great plan, purpose and future for our lives here in Time and for Eternity! All because a Savior was born! There is great hope! There is great expectancy! Believe and Receive this Christmas! (John 1:12)

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! (Phil 4:4)

May you have a Very Merry Reality Christmas this year!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The PERFECT EGG in the Manger

Only in the Messiah of Israel is found the RIGHTEOUSNESS that we so desperately need to enter into Almighty God’s Holy and Perfect Heaven. That is what is so wonderful about the Christmas message! Almighty God provided a PERFECT body for His Son to dwell and make atonement for the sins of the world (Matt. 1:20-21, Luke 1:30-35, John 1:14, Heb. 10:5, 1 Peter 1:19)!

We can NEVER enter into Almighty God's holy RIGHTEOUS Heaven without the PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS of the Savior. The PERFECT LAMB for the world was born in Bethlehem of Judea 2000 years ago to be the Savior of the world! It is ONLY through God’s Son that we have forgiveness of sins and fellowship with God the Father (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:10). It is in Christ alone that we have true son-ship and forgiveness for sins (John 1:12; Gal. 3:26) and citizenship (Eph. 2:19; Philip. 3:20) in Almighty God’s glorious RIGHTEOUS Heaven FOREVER (Rev 22:5). No wonder the angels GREATLY REJOICED with astonishment beyond all wonder at the birth of Jesus (Luke 2:10-14)!!

No wonder the angels GREATLY REJOICED with astonishment beyond all wonder!!

No Flesh (man's fallen lawless nature) shall EVER glory in His presence (Rom. 7). "But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption" (1 Cor. 1:29-30). Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? It is ONLY through the Messiah of Israel who was born 2000 years ago that we have access into the RIGHTEOUS presence of Almighty God and gain valid citizenship into His RIGHTEOUS Heaven. My friend in these very trying days be sure that you are trusting in Almighty God’s Son as ONLY taught in the Holy Scriptures for your ETERNAL destiny depends on it (John 3:36, Acts 4:12). This Christmas - if you have not already done so- be sure that you place your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ today. You will NEVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
