Why only the TWO NATURES explain grace

Greg Stier graduated from our Christian school in Colorado. Greg and I are Soul-Seekers. As evangelist we will go anywhere to preach the gospel to the lost. We tear down walls to reach the lost, but as pastors we build  walls of solid doctrine to keep false teaching out of our churches. Greg has been privileged to give the gospel for about 20 minutes at each of the WinterJam meetings across the United States.

About 10,000 (including Betty and I) went to see Greg give the gospel. As I have a tendency to peek during the invitation, I saw several hundred raise their hands to trust Christ as their Savior.
The Jim Tingen Story is a true story about a young man that just couldn’t explain the Gospel clearly. He wasn’t the type of kid that most people made friends with but he knew that people needed to hear the Gospel to be saved. Believe me; you will be affected by this story in a profound way
This story absolutely blew the teenagers away. One of the big reasons I am doing what I’m doing today at Dare 2 Share is because I heard the Jim Tingen story when I was a teenager.”
                                                                                                                 —Greg Stier
The Jim Tingen story was the most powerful story I had ever heard. It was a story that ran the gamut of emotional highs and lows, tears and laughter, and suspense as great as any drama presentation I had ever encountered. It was used as a tremendous training tool on what it means to have a burden for souls, how to witness, and what sacrifice is all about.                                           — Ralph “Yankee” Arnold

Calvinist would not believe that believers must persevere in the faith,  nor would anyone believe you could lose your salvation if they only understood the Two Natures. No preacher would tell the lost man to Turn from Sin or make Christ the Lord of their Life to be saved if they truly understood the Two Natures.


You would think that if eternal security was true, why wouldn't Jesus say so plainly? This message shows you that Jesus actually debated this issue. Remember, if you are not saved forever, you are not and cannot be saved at all. If Christ cannot save me forever, he cannot save me at all. This is real power of the gospel. You cannot know you are going to Heaven until you know you cannot go to Hell.

Yankee request your prayers for his upcoming surgery

I will have my surgery through the front of my throat and around my esophagus to remove a vertebrae on Feb. 13th, and have it replaced with a new one with a small metal plate and 4 screws. I am requesting the fervent prayers  of God's righteous people for total success from the doctors, complete healing from the surgery, no hindrances in my speaking abilities, and the grace needed to face unknown difficulties that may arise.

I will be 77 on Feb. 4th, and I will trust the Lord to walk me through this exciting adventure as he has on many occasions.  

If you do respond to this prayer request, please share with me your need that I may pray for you.

Yankee says, "Meet my Family"

Yankee says, "Meet my Family"

Betty and I (two oldest in the picture) always look forward to spending time with our family at Christmas time. My daughter, Trina Barnes, is to my right with her husband, Tendell. Trina's two children are Melanie and Michael to your far right. My son, Eddie, is on the back row with his son, Jordan. His wife, Debra, is in the front with their daughter, Abby. My greatest joy is knowing that they all have trusted Christ as their Savior and that we will be together for all eternity.
Abby helped to cheer on her big brother.
 Eddie and Debra put both of their children in a great Christian school. 
The results have truly paid off.
 We all had to wear our leather jackets, well it was cold in Georgia.
 All my grandkids love their  grandma, but don't you think all the boys 
look like their PaPa? So do I.
Before the end of the last semester at Florida Bible College of Tampa, I took three of my students to the radio station to be on my Bibleline Radio Broadcast. I was so proud to share their testimonies with the listeners.
 It was a pleasure to have friends like Steve Bils drop by and spend a little time in fellowship.
 I also had Hitomi Swett and her family visit our church from Japan. 
She found me through our YouTube ministry. In just the last two weeks I have had visitors from New Jersey, Tennessee, California, North Carolina and multiple places around Florida who watched us online. Check it out:

LINK to Yankee Arnold’s message on the Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk Radio


This is the LINK to Yankee Arnold’s message on the

Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk Radio

They have scheduled to air my message,

“Jesus, the Greatest of All Time" today Monday, January 7th.

If you cannot find the time the station in your area will air my broadcast, you may hear the full message anytime at:

CLICK ON TITLE:        “Jesus, the Greatest of All Time" 

This is the message that Mike Segovia, who is the Director of Broadcast for Dr. James Dobson at Family Talk, chose to air. I simply gave him permission to do so. I pray that you will hear it and pass along this link. When Christ said, “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature”, it was enough for me to conclude that there is no place I cannot go nor a person to whom I cannot bring the gospel.

Jan 7, 2019
Jesus, the Greatest of All Time
Guest: Dr. Ralph “Yankee” Arnold
Jesus is the only person in all of history with the ultimate power to defeat death and grant eternal life. On this broadcast, Dr. Ralph "Yankee" Arnold talks about our desperate need for a savior, and Christ’s incredible authority to pay sins debt as well as how faith in Christ alone can bring salvation.


Hello Dr. Arnold,

I am the Director of Broadcast for Dr. James Dobson at Family Talk. With your blessing, we have scheduled to air your message, “Jesus, the Greatest of All Time" on Monday, January 7th. Greg Stier, was a guest on our radio program, and he suggested that we listen to some of your sermons. Dr. Dobson agreed with me that it would be great on our airwaves. 

Again, we are supremely grateful for your willingness to join our efforts as we seek to glorify God through our ministry. 
Blessings,
Mike

It is truly an honor to preach the gospel whenever, wherever to whoever will listen. I thank the Lord for this great opportunity to be heard over the Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk Radio.

Is Salvation Forever?



Is Salvation Forever”?

Ralph Arnold, Pastor


Introduction:        While they appear to be on the opposite extremes of the theological spectrum, the consistent Calvinist (who believes in the perseverance of the saints - if you got it, you’ll live it; but if you don’t live it, it’s because you never had it) and the absolute Armenian (who believes you can lose your salvation) arrive at the same conclusion in the end - NO CERTAIN ASSURANCE OF GOING TO HEAVEN UNTIL YOU DIE!

Eternal Security means that one who has been genuinely saved by God’s grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone shall never be in danger of God’s condemnation or loss of his salvation, but are kept saved and secure by God’s grace and power.

1.     Eternal Security does not mean that all who profess to trust Christ actually possess Eternal Life.          (Matthew 7:21-23)

2.     Eternal Security does not mean that all who trust Christ plus their good works are eternally secure.
a.      Titus 3:5
b.     Rom. 4:4-5, 11:6
c.      Eph. 2:8,9

3.     Eternal Security does not mean that knowing for sure that you are saved forever should be a license to sin, but rather grants you liberty to serve Christ.                             (Rom. 6:1,2)

4.     Eternal Security does not mean that a Christian can live as he pleases and get away without chastisement.     (Heb. 12:6)

The absolute assurance of eternal salvation is based on the unfailing and sure PROMISES of GOD 

In order to show the contrast between Grace and Work, Paul in Romans states;

               “Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not , but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” Rom.4:4-5
Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, Rom 4:16
It is important to underscore three key words in this verse - 
“faith, grace, and sure”.

If you believe…You will receive

You will notice from the following simple salvation verses the relationship between the various forms of believing and having Eternal Life.

     IF YOU DO THIS                                                       YOU WILL GET THIS 


John 3:16 “whosoever believeth"------------------------------------- "have everlasting life"
John 3:36 “He that believeth" ------- ----------------------------  hath everlasting life"
John 4:10 “drink" ---------------------------------------------------------------- "living water"
John 4:14 “whosoever drinketh"----------------------------------------------- "well of water"
John 5:24 “believeth on him" ----------------------------------------"hath everlasting life"
John 5:40 “come to me" --------------------------------------------- "that ye might have life"
John 6:35 “cometh to me "----------------------------------------------- "shall never hunger"
John 6:35 “he that believeth"---------------------------------------------- "shall never thirst"
John 6:37 “him that cometh to me"------------------------------------- "in no wise cast out"
John 6:39 “… he hath given me"------------------------------------ "I should lose nothing"
John 6:40 “believeth on him"------------------------------------------ "have everlasting life"
John 6:47 “He that believeth"----------------------------------------- "hath everlasting life"
John 6:50 “man may eat"---------------------------------------------------------- "and not die"
John 6:51 “… eat of this bread-------------------------------------------- "shall live forever"
John 11:26 "....believeth in me"--------------------------------------------- "shall never die"
John 10:28 "I give unto them--------------------------------------------------- “Eternal Life"


How do you know when you really believe on Christ?

When you can say, “I have Eternal Life”


If you can’t you, “I have Eternal Life”

It’s because, you don’t believe what Christ said or did.

(1Jn 5:10-13)  He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.11  And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.12  He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13  These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
(1Jn 5:20)  And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

LET THE DEAD BURY THE DEAD


LET THE DEAD BURY THE DEAD
Pastor Ralph “Yankee” Arnold
(Luk 9:1-6)  Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
SERVICE IS A CHOICE
(Luk 9:23-27)  And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
SOME HAD A BAD CASE OF ME FIRSTITUS
 (Luk 9:57)  And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
(Luk 9:58)  And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
(Luk 9:59)  And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
(Luk 9:60)  Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
(Luk 9:61)  And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
(Luk 9:62)  And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. A decision to serve the Lord is seen by God as an irrevocable decision, but any man who refuses to prepare is not fit to serve.
A GOOD SOLDIER TRAINS MORE SOLDIERS
(2Ti 2:1-4)  Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
(2Ti 2:15)  Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
(2Ti 2:21)  If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet (FIT) for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.
SERVICE TO THE LORD FOR THE SAKE OF THE GOSPEL
IS AN IRRIVOCABLE TRUST

(1Th 2:4)  But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.
(1Co 9:16)  For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
(1Co 9:19)  For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
ASK          (Mat 7:7)  Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
SEEK         (Mat 7:8)  For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth;
KNOCK         and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

(Rom 12:1)  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 
(Rom 12:2)  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing
 of your mind, that ye may prove what is that
GOOD                   good, and 
ACCEPTABLE     acceptable, and 
PERFECT             perfect, will of God.
¶ I beseech you therefore, brethren, THAT YOU MIGHT WIN SOULS by the mercies of God, THAT YOU MIGHT WIN SOULS that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, THAT YOU MIGHT WIN SOULS holy, THAT YOU MIGHT WIN SOULS acceptable unto God, THAT YOU MIGHT WIN SOULS which is your reasonable service. THAT YOU MIGHT WIN SOULS

2 And be not conformed to this world: THAT YOU MIGHT WIN SOULS but be ye transformed THAT YOU MIGHT WIN SOULS by the renewing of your mind, THAT YOU MIGHT WIN SOULS that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God THAT YOU MIGHT WIN SOULS.
THE MAN IN THE GAP
(Eph 5:14)  Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
(Eph 5:15)  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
(Eph 5:16)  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
(Eph 5:17)  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 
As we meditate upon the Lord’s sacrifice for our sins which provided us our free salvation, do you consider the sacrifice he ask is too great to serve him?   
(2Co 5:14)  For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
(2Co 5:15)  And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
