The Uniqueness of Jesus Christ’s Suffering and Death on the Cross

Uniqueness of Jesus Christ's suffering

Cobus van Wyngaard – “my contemplations” blog

WHAT LIES AT THE ROOT OF THE BRUTAL ATTACK ON THE UNIQUENESS OF JESUS CHRIST’S SUFFERING ON THE CROSS?

Liberal theologians, or shall we call them what they really are, false teachers [who studied at the Seminary or Synagogue of Satan of the Pretoria University), say there is nothing unique about Jesus Christ’s suffering and death on the cross. Indeed, had we limited his suffering only to the physical aspect, we would have ended up with Mel Gibson’s blood and gore spectacle “The Passion of the Christ” and nothing more. Then we could probably have argued that others (common criminals) who were executed on Roman crosses suffered as much as what He did. It is precisely here where false teachers and their followers are unable to comprehend his spiritual suffering which no other human being could endure. The reason why they are unable to comprehend the unsurpassed uniqueness of Jesus Christ’s suffering and death on the cross is the following.

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [understand] them, because they are spiritually discerned. (1 Corinthians 2:14).

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. (1 Corinthians 1:18).

“Stop Comparing Nelson Mandela to Jesus”

 data-recalc-dims=NELSON MANDELA

While the world is mourning the death of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela several admirers have inadvertently compared him to Jesus Christ by testifying that heNelson Mandela taught them to love their enemies.

It truly is a virtue the entire world needs to emulate but who should we imitate – Nelson Mandela or Jesus Christ the Son of the living God who taught us to love our enemies more than 2000 years ago?

The difference between Mandela and Jesus Christ is that Christ said “without me you can do nothing” (John 15:5). It simply means that those who do not have Jesus Christ indwelling them through his Spirit, cannot do anything according to God’s will.

Mandela himself said: “I am the captain of my soul.” Who is the captain of your soul – you yourself or Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God?

The following report appeared in the Huff Post recently.

CANTEBURY, England (RNS) Few would deny Nelson Mandela’s greatness, but one of Britain’s best-known journalists, Dominic Lawson, has taken the media to task for comparing South Africa’s first black president to Jesus.

Jesus Christ, a Dismal Failure?

Calvinists Believe Jesus Christ A Dismal Failure

Calvinists Claim that Jesus Christ, a Dismal Failure?

I happened to come across this site this morning (not really, because I clicked on a link on another site and I was taken there) and could not help but smile again at how yet another Calvinist tries to demolish free-will. No matter how hard he and other Calvinists try to do that, their childish arguments lead them into a deadly cul de sac again and again. The main thrust of their argument runs as follows.

1) If Jesus loves all men and died for all men to save them all alike, then He was a useless failure because not all men are saved. 

Success, in the Calvinist’s view, is not determined by Christ’s perfect obedience to his Father but by the redemption of all his people whom He purportedly has unconditionally chosen unto salvation from all eternity. This poses somewhat of a problem. Of the more than 220 times the phrase “my people” appears in the Bible the majority refers to Israel. Hence, it is rather odd to say that God has unconditionally chosen all his people unto salvation and that every single one of them will be saved when most of the nation of Israel will not be saved (Matthew 8:12; Romans 11:28-29), unless, of course, Israel has been replaced by the so-called elect among all the heathen nations. Then, however, Calvinists would be trespassing their own rigid fortitude to defend God’s sovereignty because they are wilfully (excuse the pun) denying that Israel is still God’s chosen people despite their continued enmity with the Gospel (Romans 11:28-29).

Nelson Mandela as Jesus Christ

Nelson Mandela as Jesus Christ.  This is disgusting and utterly blasphemous.  But then again what’s new in this evil world we live in.


The ultimate portrayal

Local banker offers $2.5m for recreation of Da Vinci’s most famous work

Nelson Mandela - Last Supper

Figures are individuals who fought against inequality

Banker Mxolisi Mbetse has formally offered $2.5-million for a painting, Last Supper, depicting former president Nelson Mandela as Jesus Christ.

Artist Dean Simon, appointed in 1988 as an official war artist, was commissioned to produce the piece by a Johannesburg businessman who wants to remain anonymous.

It is a contemporary version of, arguably, one of the most recognisable images in the world – Leonardo Da Vinci’s fresco, The Last Supper. The original 1498 fresco depicts Jesus and his disciples seated around a table on the eve of his betrayal by Judas.

Moreleta Park, Bruce Wilkinson and the Amazonic “Jesus”

Bruce WilkinsonOn 16 May 2010 Dr. Bruce Wilkinson preached at the Moreleta Park Dutch Reformed Church, Pretoria to 7 000 people. He did not preach from the Bible. Instead he exegeted the revival that started in Andrew Murray’s church.

Before coming to Moreleta Park, Dr. Wilkinson prayed that the Lord would set this church free again. He asked Him what is going to happen to this church in the next five years and “I got an immediate sense of an answer. Immediately He said;  “Well, they will be onto their third service in five years. This will fill, this will fill a third time. [Applause] But they must break through in ways that they have not yet broken through.”

When Dr. Wilkinson heard that Moreleta Park had started small groups, he did not believe it, because it goes against the tradition of the Dutch Reformed Church to do something less formal and new. [Note: According to their handbook for group leaders page 15, group membership is a prerequisite for membership of the church.]  When he overcame his disbelief, he knew that they were in the midst of a growing revival that they have not yet identified. He explained that it is happening all over the world. Once a church has grown to Moreleta’s size, it bursts open into cell groups. And this is God’s doing it with a strategy in mind. The new model is finally here. This is the global new model of what God is doing. Cell groups are the next global move of God.

The Positive and The Negative of a One World Religion

The Christ - one world religion

The Positive and The Negative of a One World Religion

They tell you its all good, they tell you it’s all about peace, love and joy.  They tell you the message they are spreading is one of change, transformation.  We have to under no uncertain terms create peace on earth – no uncertain terms.  We need to save the earth, because we as a human race are going to be living in this world for a long, long time.  And we can’t continue fighting amongst each other.  The main culprit for all the conflict is religion.  And the only way to fix this problem is to merge all the major faiths together.   But they had to find the central common denominator of each religion to be able to unite them together.  It’s Christ.

They say that the Christians await their Christ, Jews are still awaiting the Messiah, Hindus are anticipating the coming of Krishna, Muslims are expecting the Imam Mahdi and Buddhists await the Fifth (Maitreya) Buddha.  They say all these ‘Christ’s’ are actually one and the same.  Therefore ALL religions lead to the same God – So what are we fighting about?

Latter Rain – Taking Dominion with another Gospel another Christ

latter rainPlease read the below…  I know a lot of good people caught up in this, thinking that what these ‘pastors’ are preaching is ok and they can’t see any harm in it.  They can’t see any harm in it because the scriptures quoted by these ‘pastors’ sounds ok, logical and scriptural as well.  They think because scripture was used to back it up, it must be true and why would a pastor of all people twist scripture or lie – he is a man of God, surely?  And they believe all this to be true because they don’t study the bible and weigh and test the spirits to make sure they are not being spoon fed another religion, one that is paving the way for the antiChrist’s grand entrance.

We who believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, i.e., ‘the old way’ will be persecuted by these ‘pastors’ and their followers because we refuse to accept the ‘move into the supernatural’ and their ‘new wineskin’.  Are you going to be the persecutor or the persecuted?  Are you going to follow these evil men and their new ‘Christ’ or are you going to follow Jesus Christ?

What does an Encounter mean or is that a G12?

Encounter ChristWhat does an Encounter mean or is that a G12?

There seems to be a few Word of Faith churches in South Africa who speak of encounters.  Multiple ones might I add.  Now…this encounter terminology is Occult terminology.  Here is a Church in Port Elizabeth (Word of Faith Christian Centre – Jimmy and Mariana Crompton) who is attracting people to their church via Spiritualism, they call it the G12 (what ever that means…quite frankly it does not matter, they could have called it ‘Bullet Point •’ when one views a bullet point in HTML Code it shows up as the following:  •

When you enter a trance like state either after intense ‘praise and worship’ or ‘getting people to open themselves up and express their emotions’ or via contemplation, mantras or clearing ones mind, yoga, breathing, etc. You encounter ‘yourself’.
