About The Author

zion4131 zion4131. Accepting the Free Gift of Salvation: The Bible says Jesus is the only way to heaven. "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me" (John 14:6 KJV) You cannot earn your way to heaven by doing "good works" "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV) Salvation comes by believing and confessing in the Lord Jesus: "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. " (Romans 10:9-10 KJV) "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed" (Romans 10:9-11 KJV)

    Cut them off. Pile them up. Let them dry. Use them to light the way at night.

    These are not of us and yet they grow alongside us. Wheat and Tares? Even closer than that, of the same plant even, on the same shoot and yet good for only one thing . . .
    to bear light in darkness.

    Some of the founders of the US worshipped at the temples of the Light Bearer, entering between Jachin and Boaz, and yet they will be consumed by fire to light the way.

    All creation declares the glory of God. Even them that worship the creation and not the Creator. These too bear witness to Him that created all things.

    Praise Jesus, that while I was in my sin, He chose not to trim me off.

    Take heed to them that sit at your feasts and yet are no more than clouds without rain.

    Rain is water. Water is the Holy Spirit.
    "I tell you", Jesus said to Nicodemus, "you must be born again."

  2. Ezekiel 20:8
    But they rebelled against me, and would not hearken unto me: they did not every man cast away the abominations of their eyes, neither did they forsake the idols of Egypt: then I said, I will pour out my fury upon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.

  3. Pastor Lawson said ; when the Holy Spirit comes in you he will lead you to truth. Two days after calling on the lord to be my savior, I come across pastor Charles Lawson. I’ve seen a lot of his sermons. Hope to find every video he’s done. Thank you pastor Lawson you probably saved my life.

  4. Amen Charles. Fellowship with the Son, Jesus Christ is the fundamental building block to fellowship with the Father, our Lord. This world is so twisted, so deranged, God is our only hope through it all. God bless you all.

  5. Thank you so much pastor Lawson for making yourself available for the work of the living God. You have been a source of inspiration and blessings for many people. May our Almighty God looks over you and your family, and gives you the to finish up your race.

  6. Oh my goodness bless you brother Lawson. You know I've never seen the cloud that our father was in to talk to Israel before they went into the land Canaan on the other side of Jordan. But I see his miracles in my life by answered prayer amen

    At 31:49 in the video link above, the irony of it All!. Mr. Sproul claims that Arminianism/FREE Will (just for the record, I am not Arminian but I also believe that man was born with a free will) is death to Christianity when what is really POISON to Christianity and what CORRUPTS the CORE (the CORE of the Gospel is LOVE . Such a DEEP LOVE Jehovah God have for mankind that He was WILLING to come down to our planet and die for us UNDESERVING SINNERS as to redeem us. That kind of LOVE goes beyond any human comprehension and is WAY ABOVE His sovereign power and ALL His other attributes) message of the gospel of Jesus Christ is Calvinism/TULIP which tries to strip man of his FREE WILL to make choices.

    Therefore it sets man FREE of any responsibility/accountability for his choices and it place that accountability on Jehovah God who, according to Johny Calvin and his loyal followers, had decreed for man to be born without FREE Will (that is if Calvinists are to be consistent on their teachings/doctrines that Jehovah God have decreed ALL things)!.

    Psalm 51:5, "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me". We are born from the sexual act between 2 sinners (shapen in iniquity) therefore before birth and at birth we ALL are sinners by nature ( we have a fallen NATURE therefore we are FALLEN creatures who needs to be redeemed) but NOT sinners as of been transgressors of Jehovah's God law because to sin we MUST 1st transgress God's law WILLINGLY and with FULL knowledge as to be accountable!.

    Romans 1:20, "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse".Since an unborn child or a child at birth have NOT seen the things which Jehovah God have created (His creation) he CAN NOT deny there is a GOD and be held accountable for the sin of unbelieve (unbelieve as in atheism/there is NO God, NOT unbelieve as in Jesus Christ been the Messiah/the Gospel).

    It just baffles me how could Mr.Sproul been a theologian and teacher (just like Christ was surprised that Nicodemus been a Pharesee, teacher of God's law and a man of letters didn't know the concept of "been born again") could have missed the ovbious. Which is, that an unborn child can not sin because he/she doesn't know the Law of God given to Moises and therefore he/she can not transgress that which he/she DOESN'T KNOW and he/she also doesn't know that there is a creation made by Jehovah God either as to know that there is a God who created him/her that deserves and demands to be worshipped!.

    What a BIASED , NICODEMUSIAN and FALSE teacher Mr. Sproul turned out to be!!!.We can put a joke (made for two) on the neck of both Nicodemus and Mr. Sproul and they would be able to pull on it EVENLY because when it comes to the Holy Scriptures, the Gospel and soteriology both are equally CLUELESS !!!!!!.

  8. Watching Pastor Lawson always makes me feel like I'm part of his congregation, I see the true Love of the Lord Jesus when I watch him preach, God Bless you Pastor Lawson

  9. Both God and the apostles knew the difference between grape-juice and fermented wine. The apostles Paul recommended Timothy to mix wine with water for his stomach ailments and to mature with the consumption of the wine. Do you believe that he would have been giving a caution, if was just grape- juice.

  10. Thanks Charles. I truly needed this tonight. Funny thing, my first ever bible reading i've done on my own, was yesterday and it was John 1 to 2 i read. Thanks for letting me understand more than i did before. I praise God and his holy son for this.

  11. I believe the FATHER'S of this country were Christians??????? See that you call no man father but the LORD? So what is going on heard pastor Lawson preach this and also point out the fact that Catholics call priests father and it's wrong cause of said scripture, so why is he calling the "foundlings" of America FATHER'S? Also if they were Christians they would not have had slaves those days of that type of practice stopped after Jesus came no real Christians would own slaves. These Christians that didn't own slaves or voiced against it in those days were hated and called n lovers back then. So why is he saying these things?

  12. This man truly speaks with accuracy . Listen to his older videos on the now, Lucifer, fallen angels, cern, alliaster Crowley. This is what the media, who is controlled by the same corporation telling you to buy their products and take their vaccines. Lucifer incorporated himself through multi generational family satanists.
    Only way to have a great life here is to live as though Christ is with you every step of the way.

  13. Pastor Lawson your knowledge of the scriptures along with world and church history is phenomenal. And your love for the Lord Jesus is so evident and all inspiring. Thank you for your dedication. I pray for you often.

  14. Pastor you’re a blessing to the Church as a whole.  Yea and Amen! . . . But, Jesus turned “water into grape juice”?  Really?  If that were true, “the ruler’s” reply would be the funniest statement in the Bible:  “Every man at the beginning doth set forth good grape juice; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good grape juice until now.”

    So, did Jesus transform the water into wine (fermented, alcoholic) or into grape juice (non-alcoholic)?

    Throughout the passage, the Greek word translated "wine" is oinos, which was the common Greek word for normal wine, wine that was fermented/alcoholic. The Greek word for the wine Jesus created is the same word for the wine the wedding feast ran out of. The Greek word for the wine Jesus created is also the same word that is used in Ephesians 5:18, "…do not get drunk on wine…" Obviously, getting drunk from drinking wine requires the presence of alcohol. Everything, from the context of a wedding feast, to the usage of oinos in 1st century Greek literature (in the New Testament and outside the New Testament), argues for the wine that Jesus created to be normal, ordinary wine, containing alcohol. There is simply no solid historical, cultural, exegetical, contextual, or lexical reason to understand it to have been grape juice.

    By creating alcoholic wine was Jesus promoting drunkenness, which the Bible clearly identifies as sinful? Certainly not. Just as Jesus was not promoting gluttony when He multiplied the fishes and loaves far beyond what the people needed.

    There is simply no good biblical reason to understand John 2 as anything other than Jesus performing an amazing miracle by turning water into real wine. Is drunkenness sinful? Absolutely! Is addiction sinful? Definitely. Would Jesus turning the water into alcoholic wine in any way violate God’s standards regarding the consumption of alcohol? Absolutely not!

    There is only one group of people who are explicitly told in the Bible to never drink wine/alcohol, and that is the Nazirites (Numbers 6:1–4). Jesus was not a Nazirite; He was a “Nazarene,” a native of the town of Nazareth (Luke 18:37).

    Nowhere does Jesus condemn drinking wine any more than He does eating bread. Sinful people abuse what is not inherently sinful.  Bread and wine are not sinful, but gluttony and drunkenness are (Proverbs 23:2; Ephesians 5:18).

    In Luke 7:33–44, Jesus said, “For John the Baptist has come eating no bread and drinking no wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look at him! A glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’” (emphasis added). In verse 33 Jesus is making a contrast between John the Baptist’s “drinking no wine” and His own practice. Jesus goes on to say, the religious leaders accused Him (falsely) of being a drunkard. Jesus was never a drunkard, any more than He was a glutton. He lived a completely sinless life (1 Peter 2:22); however, Luke 7 strongly suggests that Jesus did indeed partake of alcoholic wine.

    Res Ipsa Loquitur, amen.

  15. Pastor, brother Charles. I thank you for your service.
    Brother, THE LORD asked me to ask you if you will practise something called "prana yama". When you have some time please do some research in to this practise. Not only will this knowledge increase your health and longevity but it will increase your energy and aura.
    If as spiritual men we cannot master the breath, we can not master anything beyond that.

    May THE FATHER preside over us in all our happenings.

  16. I live in Owensboro Ky. Hello fellow Christians. I am blessed to have found Charles Lawson via internet. I listen to him everyday. Present and past sermons. Thankyou God for Charles and I pray for protection over him in every way. Thankyou Jesus. Amen
