Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

They are not all Israel

This is a clear teaching on who 'Israel' is. I've heard too many spiritualize critical passages like those found in Romans  - Jim brings clarity...

Preach it brother!

In this message, Jim speaks out against the accursed gospel in a very biblical way...he also speaks out against legalism and those who insist on keeping the law to be justified. This is a huge problem today, for I see many who name Christ insist upon keeping the law and neglecting the gospel of g-r-a-c-e. Works -based salvation is NO salvation at all...period! As Jim pointed out, an 'accursed' gospel is opposite of the true gospel, that would include ANY gospel that adds ANY work.

Jesus as Judge

more gems from Jim..

What Christ accomplished

There are many who name the name of Christ and state Christ died for the 'world'. This kind of thinking proves they have no understanding of what Christ accomplished through His sacrifice; Jim McClarty speaks biblically what Christ accomplished.

The sin of homosexuality

As I went through some old posts, I found this and pulled it out to re-post....

I want to make clear that homosexuality is not genetic; it truly is a sin of choice. Homosexuality is birthed out of lust. Romans 1:24 says, ‘wherefore, God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves’. God gives them over because they refuse to repent and believe. It is a form of wrath to be given over to your own sinful desires, yet all fail to even see this.  
An interesting find on a word study of the word ‘lust’ took me from the Greek word ‘epithumia’; meaning -‘a desire for what is forbidden’-, to the root word ‘thoo-mos’, which translates ‘the wine of passion, inflaming wine, which either drives the drinker mad or kills him with it’s strength.’
Sin is maddening, and yet, we all pursue it with all our might! The bondage of sin and the love of darkness cause this madness.
~ The more I read God’s word, the more I come to understand just how wicked and vile the human heart truly is, which is where lust lies. In Matthew 15:19, Christ teaches this, “for out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies; these are the things which defile a man”. The word fornication is from the Greek word ‘porniea’ from which we get our word ‘porn’. It means ‘to act as a harlot, or indulge in unlawful lust, things that are forbidden’, it is defined by Thayers Greek definitions as ' adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, intercourse with animals etc.' You can take it all the way back to the root word ‘pe-prasko’- which metaphorically means ‘sold under sin, entirely under control of the love of sinning’ .  Christ himself stated that all who sin are slaves to sin, and all love darkness more than light. So no one is a 'victim', for every single person ever born only desires to feed their sins continually until the day they die.

Homosexuals are acting out and living out what lies within their own hearts! This is true with all sexual immorality; it is birthed out of the lust of the sinful human heart. It is also what defiles man, or makes unclean, as Christ Himself teaches. The bible is clear, nothing defiled will enter God's kingdom. 

~Another key verse is found in James 1:13 and 14. James says,” Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am being tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed {or allured, deceived} by his own lust {or forbidden desires}.” God’s word makes it clear that all sin is chosen and acted upon by the sinner, as he/she gives in to the forbidden lust within their own hearts; not one person will escape accountability apart from repentance and believing in the Gospel. The body of Christ must understand this in order to prevent from compromising the truth when proclaiming the Gospel to homosexuals. The Gospel is the greatest need for all sinners- the death, burial and resurrection of Christ is indeed good news. Yet, the world rejects this good news. All live for the here and now and all have no concern for  what will happen to them when they die- they  do not consider such 'morbid thinking'. 

The world needs to hear of Christ and His atoning sacrifice, and of God's undeserving mercy on sinners. The short amount of time left will soon be gone, Christ will come, and all hope will be lost.
