At this point, I’ve done a lot of series’ in the 15 months my blog has been public. Now, I’ve discounted the first year of blogging, because that was all the stuff I’d written in private, before I took this public. And despite repeated hints, very few of those have actually been read by anyone except… me.
So that means VERY few people have read the entire “Answering the Roman Catholic Church” series. Actually, my stats say most of those remain unread.
the Word Faith movement one was my most successful, with people still reading it. Jehovah’s witnesses runs a close second. I’m guessing from my stats, that JW’s are still coming back and reading. Interesting that one pro-JW site links to one of those in an attempt to discredit me, but of course, in the interest of honesty and integrity, they refuse to link to the page where I answered all of their so-called refutations.
Nice try, but God keeps leading JW’s to the other pages, people. I haven’t had a JW yet email me and say, “hey, your blog helped me to decide to leave.” If even one JW gets saved as a result of that work, it’ll be more than worth the work.
The second least popular was the exposition on Romans. I kind of expected that, because that was all about the Bible, and despite Christians saying they love their Bible, few of them actually want to read it. Brothers and sisters, if you take any one point away from reading this blog, all 110 of you, it is this… read your Bibles. Study your Bibles. I’m going to say that the cults far surpass Christians in their reading and studying of the Bible. I actually had a Christian tell me back before I was saved that I knew the New Testament better than most Christians! My response to him was, “That’s a shame.”
So what’s been the least popular one out of all the writings I’ve done, that people have actually read? Judging from traffic, likes, and comments?
Wow. Out of all the series’, the one that has the most meaning to me – and if you’re a Bible believing Christian, should have the most meaning to you as well. Since I started the series’, I’ve watched my stats drop in half.
Now, I’ve written a lot on the Great Apostasy. I’ll tell you this, I am 100% convinced we’re smack dab in the middle of it. And I’ve grown more and more convinced that the number of people who think they’re Christians vs. the ones that are is a 100 to 1 ratio.
I’ve put statistics online showing that 1.5% of the earth’s population is saved. That should bother you.
But here’s a barometer of the current state of Christianity. When you absolutely can care less about the very people that God describes as the apple of His eye, I’m going to say now I understand why Jesus Christ threatens to vomit those of us who call ourselves Christians out of His mouth.
Here’s a reading assignment for you all, as I move on to other topics for a little while before resuming the series on the Jews. I want you to read Romans 9-11.
That’s all. Three chapters of the Bible. If you’ve got the “King James Study Bible” that used to be the “Liberty University Study Bible”, and you’re REALLY MOTIVATED to know what God has to say on that subject – and God HAS A LOT TO SAY ON THIS SUBJECT – start following all the references in the center column.
Brothers and sisters, God swore an oath to Abraham, and will uphold it. Are you the seed of Abraham? Yes, by faith. But ye are a wild branch ingrafted upon the true vine. And if you boast that the natural branches were broken off that you may be part of it, reflect on the fact that God has said he can – and will – change His focus RIGHT BACK to the natural branches.
Is the Tribulation about the Gentiles?
It’s about the Jews. Sure, there’s going to be massive numbers of gentiles who are saved. But you guys… it’s about the Jews. The Bible talks about 144,000 sent ones, and they’re Jews. It talks about the two witnesses, and guess what? They’re Jews. It talks about Jewish territory, and the only real Gentile territory the bible discusses is… Babylon.
If you are not motivated to reach your Jewish brethren with the Gospel, then you are at the very least, terribly backslidden.
If you are not motivated to see Jews saved, and come to Christ, you are very probably PART of the Great Apostasy.
If you hate and despise the Jews… well, I don’t know the condition of your heart, or your life. I’m just going to advocate reading the Bible. If that doesn’t change your heart, then… see my pages on the Gospel, and Salvation.
22 Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD. 23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you. Zechariah 8:22-23 (KJV)
14 But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. 15 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. 16 Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. Isaiah 49:14-16 (KJV)
So I’ll deal with some other topics for a little while, then we’ll come back to this.
