The Infiltrated Church

What is the attack plan of the adversary? How would Satan choose to steal, kill, and destroy the bride of Christ?

Fortunately for us, the Lord has already reviewed the playbook of the enemy and has written it down for us to read.

It includes propaganda via misinformation campaigns, preying on the fears of the people, and using the desires of the flesh as a weapon against us.

Digging deeper into the first tactic, misinformation, below is an excerpt from the book Flesh Tamers: Christian Manliness: The Courage to Stand Firm.

True Christian manliness requires that we stand firm against the cultural norms and progressive tendencies toward accepting and allowing all desires of the flesh.  Our current culture has moved into almost a mob mentality of defending and protecting any sinful want that their mind and fleshly nature crave within them.  By the Holy Spirit, Peter wrote:

1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. 2 Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; 3 and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. 4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 and if He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly lives thereafter; 7 and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men 8 (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds), 9 then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who indulge the flesh in its corrupt desires and despise authority. Daring, self-willed, they do not tremble when they revile angelic majesties, 11 whereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord. 12 But these, like unreasoning animals, born as creatures of instinct to be captured and killed, reviling where they have no knowledge, will in the destruction of those creatures also be destroyed, 13 suffering wrong as the wages of doing wrong. They count it a pleasure to revel in the daytime. They are stains and blemishes, reveling in their deceptions, as they carouse with you, 14 having eyes full of adultery that never cease from sin, enticing unstable souls, having a heart trained in greed, accursed children; 15 forsaking the right way, they have gone astray, having followed the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 but he received a rebuke for his own transgression, for a mute donkey, speaking with a voice of a man, restrained the madness of the prophet. 17 These are springs without water and mists driven by a storm, for whom the black darkness has been reserved. 18 For speaking out arrogant words of vanity they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality, those who barely escape from the ones who live in error, 19 promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved. 20 For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world by the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. 21 For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment handed on to them. 22 It has happened to them according to the true proverb, “A dog returns to its own vomit,” and, “A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire.” (2 Peter 2 NASB1995)

One example of how a Christian man must act and stand firm is Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah……………

Review: Thompson Chain-Reference Bible NASB 1977

As a member of the Bible Gateway Blogger Grid (BG2), I often get early and free access to new editions of Bibles and other study materials to offer my honest review. #BibleGatewayPartner

I have recently been asked to review the new NASB version of the Thompson Chain-Reference Bible. It uses the NASB translation from 1977, which I respect, due to the literal interpretation of the original text. The NASB represents a conservative, literal approach to translation.

This version of the Thompson Chain-Reference Bible was published on June 08, 2021, by Zondervan, an international Christian media company.

The Thompson Chain-Reference Bible includes marginal notations for an easy-to-learn, easy-to-use system that enables the reader to see the breadth of the Scripture’s teachings on thousands of topics. There are over 100,000 references listed in this Bible’s margins, covering over 8,000 topics.

The chain-reference system is an ideal tool for a comprehensive topical study. You can also expand your Bible study with even more tools, including biographical sketches, an archeological supplement, and outlines of each book of the Bible. The Thompson Chain-Reference Bible allows the Scripture to interpret itself without commentaries.

The indexes and additional helps, including the updated archeological section, will help you gain a deeper understanding of God’s Word and experience the threads of inspiration woven into the Word by the Holy Spirit that connect the books of the Bible.

As an example, when reading in Acts 13, there are numbers in the margins that I can map back to the “Index of Chain Topics”, which then helps me deep dive into a particular subject matter. One verse and chain can take you on a deeper study of a topic that will help you fully understand the depth of the verse and the entire chapter or book.

The Thompson Chain-Reference Bible helps me in the times when I need to prepare for a small group study or when I feel prompted to research a specific topic or meaning of a word.

My typical daily Bible reading is done via an app. However, there are many times when I need to understand the full meaning and historical context of a verse, and that is when I grab the Thompson Chain-Reference Bible and take a closer look. Doing this helps me confirm that I have understood the verse and chapter correctly, and that I have stayed true to the correct theological meaning that was intended by the Holy Spirit when the verse was originally written.

Overall, I give the NASB version of the Thompson Chain-Reference Bible five stars, and I recommend this Bible to anyone who wants to fully understand the Word of God and grasp its true meaning.

Six-week Study Guide Launch!

I am extremely excited to announce that a six-week study guide is now available as a companion to my first book; Flesh Tamers: Christian Manliness: The Courage to Stand Firm.

The Study Guide contains thought provoking questions, additional Bible verses and breaks the book into meaningful sections for a small group men’s study.

Also, I have added a journal section to the back of the Study Guide for notes and for capturing the readers own thoughts.

To see the details and to order a copy, please visit my author page.

Additionally, I have launched a separate full year journal version. This journal, Stand Firm: Overcomer’s Journal for Men, was created to help in the daily battle planning and after-action report for the Christian man.

Thank you for being a subscriber. I am very appreciative of all the support, and I hope you are receiving value from the blog.
