1 John 4 – The Source of Love & Vladimir Putin on Muslims

Sometime around August of 2013, I received an email about what Australia Prime Minister Julia Gillard had to say about the Muslims, but today (3/26/14) I see online that many are saying it was a hoax.

And it could be a hoax, yet, what she allegedly said is very similar to what Putin said and her reason for saying it, if she did, is due to the way the Muslims behave, and it is true that the Muslims are slowly but surely taking over small communities.

The radical Muslims live by the Koran,  and it is scary and they are coming here to the United States. 

Tomorrow we’ll look at…

1 John 4
The Source of Love

1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

“Spirit” – a person moved by a spirit, whether by the Holy Ghost or an evil one.

“Try the spirits” – cf. 1 Thess 5:21.

“False prophets” – a true prophet speaks from God, being “moved by the Holy Ghost” (2 Pet 1:21).  False prophets, such as the Gnostics of John’s day, speak under the influence of spirits alienated from God.

Christ warned against false prophets (Matt 7:15, 24:11), as did Paul 1 Tim 4:1) and Peter (2 Pet 2:1).

I believe that Jesus was the last prophet because since He came we don’t need prophets; we have the New Testament and the Holy Ghost.

“Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail…” (1 Cor 13:8).

“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received words with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11).

Yet…

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams” (Acts 2:17).

But if anyone says that God said that people are supposed to give money to their need or their church or whatever, that’s a flat out lie.  That is one of the false prophets that Jesus talked about. 

That does not mean you should not give at your church I’m talking about false prophets like Bishop Hilliard who claims God told him it was time to upgrade his helicopter and the people were to give extra.

2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

Prosperity Gospel preacher and false prophet I.V. Hilliard of New Light Christian Center Church in Houston, Texas, has come under fire for sending a letter requesting a special “favor seed” of $52 from church members in order to upgrade the church’s helicopter.

Claiming he received a direct message from God regarding the situation, Hilliard’s letter, which promises all who “sow a seed” that they will automatically receive a “transportation blessing” in their own lives, is a stark example of the many heresies and false doctrines in the Prosperity Gospel movement that has corrupted much of the Christian church today.

Hilliard and his wife, who live an extreme, lavish lifestyle comparable to multimillionaire rock stars, are a part of the apostasy – the prophesied falling away of much of the Christian church from Biblical doctrine to false preaching, in preparation for the coming Antichrist (June 24, 2013).

“Confesseth” – not only knows intellectually – for demons know, and shudder (Jas 2:19; cf. Mk 1:24) – but also confesses publicly.

3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

4 Ye are of God, litt

“He that is in the world” – the devil.  In v. 3 “world” means the inhabited earth; in vv. 4-5 it means the community, or system, of those not born of God – like the Jews, the Muslims, the Mormons, the Oprahs, the United States Congress, etc. – including the antichrists.

5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

4:7-5:3 – the word “love” in its various forms is used 43 times in the letter, 32 times in this short section.

8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

“Knoweth not God” – only those who are to some degree like Him truly know Him.

“God is love” – in His essential nature and in all His actions, God is loving.  John similarly affirms that God is spirit (Jn 4:24) and light (1:5), as well as holy, powerful, faithful, true and just.

9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

“No man hath seen God at any time” – since our love has its source in God’s love, His love reaches full expression (is made complete) when we love fellow Christians.  Thus the God whom “no one has seen” is seen in those who love, because God lives in them.

13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God and God in him.

17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

“No fear in love” – there is no fear of God’s judgment if you love Him because genuine love confirms salvation.

19 We love him, because he first loved us.

All love comes ultimately from God; genuine love is never self-generated by His creatures.

20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

See Jn 13:34.

Vladimir Putin on Muslims

No wonder he was selected by Forbes as the most powerful person in the world!

This is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin.

I would suggest that not only our leaders but every citizen of United States should pay attention to this advice. In addition, all of Europe should listen as well.

How scary is that? It is a sad day when a Communist makes more sense than our leaders but here it is!

Vladimir Putin’s Speech
Shortest Speech Ever

On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:

In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws.

Please note that the information is from outside sources not officially sanctioned by the RCA.
Any suggestions for better links from those with significant knowledge of the countries in question would be most welcome.

Click on the country about which you wish to know more.

If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim’s then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law.

Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’.

We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We had better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation.

The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.

When this honourable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.

The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five-minute standing ovation.

What is the Muslim view on Vladimir Putin?

It is no secret that Russia is the world’s biggest non-Muslim sponsor of Islamic terrorism.
Russian weapons and rubles flow into Iran and Syria, and from there to terrorist groups throughout the Middle East.

Russian personnel train the Iranians, who in turn train Iraqi Shiite terrorists on the best way to kill American soldiers.

While the US was getting ready to take down Saddam Hussein, Russia was using its best delaying tactics in the UN, while rushing its top of the line weapons into Iraq.

Putin knew that Saddam was finished and that Iraq’s debt to Russia would never be paid. Nevertheless the doomed Saddam got the best the Russian armories had to offer in order to kill as many American troops as possible.

After the invasion, Russian officials would boast of the increased demand for their weapons in the Muslim world.

#1 He’s an aloof guy, so nobody really knows him well enough to have any valid opinions of him. Guys an ex-KGB agent – not even the NSA screw around with guys like that.

#2 – He is a very evil guy.

#3 – Like it or lump it for all the reasons applicable to Russian culture Putin is showing who is boss, there won’t be any soft deals for troublemakers and just see what happens to Dagestani insurgents.

#4 – He is as ruthless as Russia requires it. And he is no Moslem.

#5 – I like the guy. Puts people where they belong.

#6 – I don’t think that Putin should be viewed from any religious point of view at all. I personally think that he is a great man/leader.

I am not stating that in any sense to any humanity or religion or ethics etc. I am stating that in the frame of nationalism and the challenges that he has not only met, but the wisdom and knowledge and prudence he has exhibited in dealing with the challenges.

Soviet Union was almost history. The financial breakdown had almost put it to an end. Though the present Russia is now still ruled by KGB. All the top industry owners were once KGB agents. They may still be.

Putin was very nasty and tricky when he first enjoyed everything as president and then made some constitutional changes and then became the prime minister and started enjoying the same authority there. So all in all, one can say that he is a full time dictator and power hungry person.

But on the other hand, one has to see, what he has done for the country and the economy and thus the people of that country. He has done a great job!!!

Also although now he has brought Russia back to the same level or even surpassing the United States in military might etc. BUT he has NOT behaved in an irresponsible way as the Americans have been behaving for the last 20 years.

He is the person who has taken steps to avoid the 3rd world war, while confronting America, in a very tactful and yet assertive and forceful way. He allowed them to retreat in a somewhat respectful way over the Syrian Crisis.

Supreme Court upholds ban on Muslim headwear in schools
A branch of Russia’s Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by a group of Muslims for the right of schoolgirls to wear traditional religious attire, specifically the hijab, in classrooms.

The appeal was made by a group of citizens of Muslim faith from southern Russia’s Stavropol Region.

They complained that a decree by the local administration ordering all schoolchildren to appear in classes only in regular secular clothes, which came into force in January this year (2013), infringes their freedom of faith as guaranteed by the constitution.

Certain denominations of Islam requires that all women wear special headscarves called hijabs, covering their hair and necks.

The controversy erupted when a group of schoolgirls was barred from classes for two weeks when they insisted on wearing hijabs.

The girls then began attending to a local religious school, the parents saying their daughters would receive the mandatory universal secondary education at home.

However the administration ruled that a religious school cannot replace a secular one.

Else very few can realize that the whole world was sitting on a nuclear conflict at that moment of time. And the way the Obama sounded like a stupid idiot, was too much.

But the Putin’s response to his speech was by far very, very responsible and mature and yet very logical and depicted a person who was really very knowledgeable and immaculate.

So as a leader, I would rate him great.

#7 – Salam I know him as the president of Russia and he is a disbeliever.

#8 – Hey, I am Muslim. I believe Putin is an idiot. As is the pathetic country of Russia still living in the Dark Ages, oppressing homosexuals and religious people.

#9 – At first I didn’t like Putin because he turned a blind eye to the skinhead attacks on non-Europeans in St. Petersburg and elsewhere. But I’ve grown to respect him.

I like that he described the collapse of the Soviet Union as the “greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century”.

I recognize that Muslim capitalist Alisher Usmanov is a good friend of his so he’s not against a person purely because of their religious or ethnic heritage.

I also respect that he refuses to obey America and slot into the New World Order like so many other countries (especially English speaking countries).

I greatly admire the Soviet Union and its heritage. Despite the horrible excesses of Stalinism, it was, on the whole, a noble experiment.

#10 – Same view as with rest of the World’s invaders, including the United States one too, and the biggest one!

#11 – He needs to give Chechnya freedom.

#12 – I don’t care.

#13 – He is a disbeliever who rules by falsehood. And lately, he seems to be following in Bush’s steps. Recent events.
