  1. Ephesians 6:12

    King James Version

    12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

  2. What Pastor Voddie is saying about the teaching of the Gay Christian Movement, about how it's not a sin to have the attraction as long as you don't act on it, and how they are trying to push the same thing for paedophiles, I have heard from people calling themselves Christians myself. My response is that Jesus said, ‘You have heard that it was said, “You shall not commit adultery.” But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.'

    Matthew 5:27‭-‬28 NIV

    The attraction is the sin, the action is the symptom of the sin. So when someone has that attraction but doesn't act on it, they are still sinning because they are harbouring that sinful desire in their hearts.

  3. Thank you God for showing me Rev Bauchum!

    I've learned so much from this brilliant teacher/preacher within the last few weeks of 'discovering' his videos!!!

    This man is a true messenger!

  4. Part 1……
    The Gospel accounts are very clear about the focus of Christ’s message. Yet the gospel of the Kingdom of God is nearly absent from Christianity today.

    By Erik Jones

    The myriad of churches that make up Christianity profess that their religion is based on Jesus Christ. Nearly all claim Him as their founder and say that their teachings are based on what He said and did 2,000 years ago. But, sadly, there are many doctrines where mainstream Christianity ignores or actually rejects the teachings of Jesus Christ.

    This month’s column makes a bold assertion: Mainstream Christianity does not teach the same message that Jesus Christ brought when He walked the earth 2,000 years ago.

    Jesus had a central message that formed the basis for His entire ministry and teachings.

    He pinpointed this central message in the heart of His most famous sermon—the Sermon on the Mount. He made a statement about what should be the highest priority for His followers: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33, emphasis added).

    Jesus Christ’s words are clear—the Kingdom of God is to be the No. 1 focus and emphasis in the lives of His followers. In fact, it was the core of His gospel message.

    Christ’s gospel was not just about Himself

    Gospel is a common word in the Christian world. Some think of it in connection with a genre of religious music, but most understand that it describes a message. It literally means a message of good news. Most churches include the word gospel in their mission statements. Typically, the gospel is described as the gospel of Jesus Christ, and it is seen as the message of His life, death and resurrection. (You can see this by doing a Google search of the mission statements of different denominations of Christianity.)

    But was this the central message that Jesus actually taught? Was His message only about Himself?

    A study of the Gospel accounts of Christ’s life pinpoints exactly what His message—His gospel—was all about!

    Notice Mark 1:14: “Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God.” That statement is pretty plain—Jesus preached the gospel about the Kingdom of God!

    There are many scriptures that reinforce this fact. For example, Matthew 9:35 says, “Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom.”

    At one point in His ministry, Jesus was about to leave an area where He had been preaching for some time. The people of that area tried to persuade Him not to go (

    Now when it was day, He departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowd sought Him and came to Him, and tried to keep Him from leaving them;

    Luke 4:42). Jesus’ response was, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent” (verse 43).

    Let that sink in.

    Jesus Christ said that one of His primary purposes for coming to earth was to preach about the Kingdom of God! That was His gospel. That was His message. That was His purpose. That is what drove Him.

    When we understand that the thrust of Christ’s message centered on the Kingdom of God, we understand better why He made the statement in Matthew 6:33: “Seek first the kingdom of God.” He tells us to seek first the Kingdom because the Kingdom of God was His primary message.

    This message is about the literal establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth at the second coming of Jesus Christ. See our infographic on page 29 to learn more details about what the Kingdom of God is.

    But where is that message in mainstream Christianity today?
    Part 2…..
    Jesus Christ’s words are clear—the Kingdom of God is to be the No. 1 focus and emphasis in the lives of His followers. In fact, it was the core of His gospel message.

    Christianity lost Christ’s message

    After Christ was resurrected and ascended to heaven, He founded a Church. The purpose of that Church—that called-out group of people—was to carry on the work He did while on earth. Christ commissioned His Church to go into the entire world and preach the same message that He preached while He was on earth (Matthew 24:14; 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Acts 1:3-8).
    The Bible shows that the early Church faithfully followed Christ’s directive and preached the gospel of the Kingdom of God (Acts 8:12; 14:22; 19:8; 20:25; 28:23, 31). The members of the early Church also put their focus on the coming Kingdom (Colossians 4:11; 2 Thessalonians 1:5).
    But as the first century progressed, the intense focus on the Kingdom began to wane as false beliefs began to creep into Christianity. The apostle Paul wrote that he perceived Christians in his time were “turning away” from the true gospel to “a different gospel” (Galatians 1:6). In what was likely his final letter, Paul gave multiple warnings about his fear that people were abandoning true doctrines and being led astray into false teachings (2 Timothy 2:14-18; 3:13-14; 4:1-3, 14-15). Other apostles wrote similar warnings (2 Peter 2:1; 2 John 1:7; Jude 1:4).
    The understanding of the true gospel and the focus on the Kingdom of God were minimized and lost over the centuries after the end of the New Testament era.
    A key factor in this was Emperor Constantine’s acceptance of a popular form of Christianity and its subsequent adoption as the official religion of the Roman Empire.
    Historian Justo Gonzalez writes: “Since the time of Constantine, and due in part to the work of Eusebius and of many others of similar theological orientation, there was a tendency to set aside or to postpone the hope of the early church, that its Lord would return in the clouds to establish a Kingdom of peace and justice. … Eusebius, although more articulate than most, was simply expressing the common feeling among Christians, for whom the advent of Constantine and of the peace he brought about was the final triumph of Christianity over its enemies” (The Story of Christianity, Vol. 1, pp. 134-135).
    This idea was also promoted by the theologian Augustine of Hippo in his highly influential book The City of God: “Therefore the Church even now is the kingdom of Christ, and the kingdom of heaven” (Book XX, Chapter 9).
    This belief became known as amillenialism and is a dominant belief (in different forms) in mainstream Christianity today.
    After the true biblical teaching of the Kingdom of God was removed, the gospel message was changed from the message about the Kingdom to a message primarily about Jesus Christ. In other words, Christianity kept the name of Jesus Christ, but abandoned His message.
    Jesus was very clear that professing His name but ignoring His teachings is false worship (Luke 6:46).

    Preaching the true gospel today

    The true gospel is not a minor issue. As we have already read, Jesus connected a belief in the true gospel to repentance (Mark 1:15), and the apostle Paul warned that preaching a different gospel brings a curse (Galatians 1:8-9). Believing the true gospel is vital to your salvation!
    The true gospel is the message of good news about the coming Kingdom of God. It is a message of hope—for this entire world and for you and your family. It is the message that God is building a family that will soon rule the entire earth, bringing peace and happiness.
    The established Christian churches have lost that true gospel message.
    I disagree with the kingdom being for later…….IT IS AVAILABLE NOW…

    Scripture clearly states that Jesus came announcing the kingdom at the inception of His ministry(it is at hand, now right here, He brought it with Him…. With Love, William Allen

  5. I new they were coming in on the back of the civil rights movement, way back in the 80s, and they got it through legally with the first black president, i told people this was the door they were coming through in American society ,this was not what Martin Luther king envisioned .

  6. The reason the institution of marriage between man and woman only has been erased is because of the politicians the Supreme Court and the media. That makes all of our society guilty of the law of God being changed because the societal majority embraced it. Good luck with that when you die and meet God.

  7. Thank you for THE TRUTH that is under attack by the culture today, the world desperately needs truth because God is now separating the sheep from the goats now in America in our free fall…..

  8. Jamming, or self censorship is what I noticed in my church this morning, because a man was leading Congregational prayer, and prayed about gay marriage.
    A lady walked out, she was new, and later on, of the 5 people I spoke to, they all said it needs to be said kinder, or better. How would that be done, I asked, but no-one really could answer, except to say we need to be sensitive to others.
    So 8n other words, let the world push us into a corner, where we self censorship ourselves, and soon we'll be only preaching half the Bible.
    My opinion was that if it's in the Bible, we preach it. How it's received is between them and God, that it's better to be up front with what we believe and follow all of the Bible.
    Like Voddie said, will we do the same with adulterers, will be soften it for 3/4 of the sermon so no-one gets offended, and we begin to be apologetic about every controversial topic.
    The big sin now is to be thought to be offensive.

  9. what i dont understand is the whole lgbtqia2plus etc group is always saying stuff about accepting everyone and respecting everyone and everyones opinions are valid, but then why is my opinion not valid? why is voddie's not valid? i thought they said everyone was valid? hmmmmm interesting

  10. So is God wanting you to teach ppl how to judge? When they have no discernment? And do you have discernment? Hmmm 🤔 if Jesus were before you today how would you explain your judgment of others? And your lack of discernment?

  11. When Jesus returns will his name be Jesus? And when he announces himself the Christians will likely be the ones who try to kill him lol just as the Jews tried to kill Jesus…. Jesus was Jewish did you guys know that lol he read the Torah and trusted the Torah he didn't however trust the Jewish leaders who judged crucified and did not forgive as God told us to do just like the Torah says lol 😅

  12. I thank the Lord for Dr. Baucham. His theology is right on the mark. His preaching is so edifying, and his stands against the current woke-ism is encouraging. At the 4:20 mark he mentioned that the SEL (Social Emotional Learning) is the trojan horse for CRT, and I've heard this also but I cannot find the connection. If anyone can guide me along this line I'd appreciate it. Thank you!

  13. According to the Teachings of the Bible "All active Homosexuals and Homosexuality Sympathizers (applies to LGBTQ+) are going to Hell for an Eternity, Unless the come to full repentance and God Forgives them".

  14. These are the people purposely destroying America everyday! Then claim to be Americans. Thats a thorough brianwashing! Regressives serve the devil himself

  15. If you can send a donation to Voddie Baucham please do so I will too other than that he has for me anyway made me realize a place to stand for GOD without being angry and just that being angry born again is real join us I don’t know where he is or his testimony? But the insight and ability to put what is in my heart into words our country needs him and the world 🌎

  16. I honestly think we are going to get so far from God that we are going to open the door to a savior, a false savior. Which will open the door to the antichrist, our "savior" who will bring us back to God. I don't know this but all signs point to it in my opinion. Look at what the bible states, he would be able to deceive the elect(those who understand the bible and keep his commandments). Matthew 23-25 says 23“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.
    One way to deceive us would be "having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof", like many of these churches and once saved always saved doctrines of today. You'll know the antichrist as he will go against the commandments of God. I pray all will not be deceived but will awake to what Satan is doing in the world today!

  17. Evil is evil, you can give it all kinds of letters or names but it is a distraction and not in keeping with God’s words and thereby is evil. Nothing is new, it is all in the Bible, yet today ‘sin’ isn’t hiding. Sin is promoted through people and the media.

  18. it's hard to be humble when you still have self-importance, been in the church circle since 1998 the riots in Jakarta Indonesia haven't met anyone Fearing God but fearing man. Australia June 2022
