****Today I will discuss just what it means to receive the new engrafted Spiritual heart, to be “Born Again”, “saved,” “be converted,” “become a Christian,” “become a child of God.” They are all referring to the same Spiritual experience which is used to describe when a person receives the Spirit of Christ into their heart to create the new changed heart which results in us becoming a child of God. Being born again with a new changed heart is prophesied in Ezekiel 36:26 where God says, “A new heart also will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. (27) AND I will put My Spirit within you…” We each must be Born Again with the new clean heart with the Spirit of Christ in us to be Children of God. Grace is the work of the Spirit to perform all that is necessary for this transformation in our heart.

Some (8) Ways God Spoke To People In Bible

Ways God Spoke In Bible 1 & 2 —Email: gpwf@yahoo.com —–rahardin.com Bio, Books, Blog, Videos, Podcasts —–
**** Richard Hardin, POBox 45684, OKC, OK 73145.
****I will give any minister $10,000 for his/her ministry that will go through my podcasts with me and show from the Scriptures that I am wrong about calvinism being a lie of the devil.
****Learning to hear from God personally or learning how God speaks is the only way we can relate to God to be pleasing to Him through His perfect Word to faith, Hebrews 11:6, because faith only comes by hearing His perfect Word without error. Our country/world needs Spiritual help, and only the Pure Word of God, Christ, can help us because God will only back up His pure living spoken Word, Christ, that He gives us to share as His ambassadors, Proverbs 30:5-6, “Every Word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him. (6) Add thou not unto His Words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” We are found liars if we add to or take away from His Pure Word, Christ, because God won’t back up our word, only His Pure Word, Christ. We each are responsible to learn to hear God’s perfect word. I will share some of the ways God spoke in the Bible, which may cause some of you to recognize that God has been trying to speak to you, and I hope so because it could change your live today. ***Go to my website: rahardin.com , podcasts and /or listen on @KLRNRadio.com 6AM CST Sat & Sun #GPWF #Christian

****In the last few minutes of the program I had to remove some long outdated ads so they will be replaced by two short messages. The first will be John 3:16 and how it reflects on predestination, election, and calvinism’s teaching of God electing people to heaven and hell prior to our birth. The answer is God doesn’t pick people for heaven and hell prior to our birth! We each must choose by our own free will to receive Christ into our hearts or reject Him from coming into our hearts! The second short message will be on deliverance from fear. The three messages on this Podcast could save and change your life even if you are already a Christian!

If Jesus Were God Prior To His Exaltation To The Godhead??

1. Luke 2:52, (KJV), “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” If Jesus were God, how did God(Jesus) increase in wisdom(God’s Pure Word)? If Jesus were God, how did Jesus increase in favor with God(himself)?

2. 1 Cor 1:24, “…Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” Christ the Creating Spoken Power of God, and Christ the Living Spoken Wisdom of God. Christ the Spoken Power of God created all things, John 1:1. Christ the Pure Spoken Wisdom of God created all things, Ps 104:24, Ps 136:5, Pr 3:19, “The Lord by Wisdom hath founded the earth; …” And Pr 33:6, “By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.” Moses in Heb 11:26, “Esteeming the reproach of Christ(God’s Spoken Word to him) greater riches than the treasures in Egypt:…) Jesus only spoke what His Father told him to speak, so Jesus was speaking the Word of God Christ when he spoke to people. Jesus says in John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life(Christ).” John 14:10, “Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself; but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works.” Jesus was the man Jesus here speaking His Father’s Words, Christ, who was in Him, like Christ living in Christian’s hearts today. In Matt 27:46, Mark 15:34, when Jesus cried out, “…my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” The Spirit of Christ (God) left Jesus’ heart and it was the first time ever that his heart was separated from his Father. Jesus the man was left alone to die by himself on the cross for our sins. Jesus the man died on the cross for our sins! If you don’t believe or understand Christ, the Living Word, living in the heart of the man Jesus, how can you understand Christ the Living Word living in our heart, we certainly are not Gods! Neither was Jesus until God exalted him to the fullness of the Godhead.

Jesus’ Faith vs Our Faith

JESUS’ FAITH vs OUR FAITH

Faith is always/only the result of hearing God’s Word, accepting God’s Word in the person’s heart and obeying the instruction of what spoken. Jesus in John 8:28-29, “When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am He, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And He that sent me is with me; the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please Him.” Jesus made only correct responses to all of His Father’s desires, and obeyed His Father’s Will in His perfect walk of Faith. Many times, in Bible studies, I have heard that we need to seek for the “the Faith of God” or “the Faith of Jesus,” or “the Faith of the Son of God,” which sounds as if it would be superior and much better than our Faith if it were available. But that is not the case, Jesus lived by His hearing, accepting, obeying God’s Word (His Father) to Faith, and we must live by our Faith, hearing, accepting and obeying God’s specific Word to each of us personally,

Eph 2:8, “For by Grace are ye saved through Faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.” Our Faith comes from our hearing, accepting God’s Word that we are sinners, our acceptance that we must humble ourselves call out to Jesus, ask forgiveness and invite His Spirit, Christ, the Living Word, into our hearts. Only then will God/Jesus respond by sending His Words of Faith, the Spirit of Christ, into our hearts to perform the work of Grace to create our new hearts and live in our new heart at salvation. Heb 4:2 states what will happen if you hear God and reject receiving His Words of the gospel salvation into your heart, “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the Word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with Faith in them that heard it.” They didn’t humble themselves, ask forgiveness and invite God’s Spirit, His Word, into their hearts, we must all personally do that to receive His Spirit into our heart, He won’t come in uninvited. Paul says in 2 Thessalonians 2:10, “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; BECAUSE they received not the Love(Spirit of the Living Word) of the truth(God’s Word), that they might be saved.” We each must choose to accept/reject God’s Word to life or death. Hebrews 11:6 … It is impossible to please God without Faith, for we cannot please God by rejecting His Word, He and His Word are the same. Also, changing His Word in any way is rejecting His Word.

Paul in Romans 5:1-2, “Therefore being justified by Faith (our Faith). We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by Faith( our Faith) into this Grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” As above, when we accept, receive and obey God’s Word TO Faith, His Living Words that we receive into our hearts perform the work of Grace in us to fulfill His desires in or through our hearts to others (Charity). In Ephesians 6:16, our acceptance of God’s Words in our hearts to Faith is our shield of Faith to quench ALL the fiery darts of the wicked. We inherit God’s Great Precious promises by our Faith, accepting and obeying them, Gal 3:9, Heb 6:12, 18. Our victory over the world of problems is through our Faith, acceptance and obedience to God’s Word, 1 John 5:4. People who reject God’s Word do not have Faith, Deut 32:20, Mark 4:40, 2 Thess 3:2, and Romans 12:3 is talking about Christians when it says that all men have a measure of Faith, and all Christians must have at least the initial measure of Faith to receive Grace for salvation. Then we must live by Faith in our daily decisions, Rom 1:17, Rom 2:13, Gal 3:11, Hab 2:4, Heb 10:38 because Romans 14:23 states that everything not of Faith is sin! Faith is not a commodity that you can place here and there, you can only accept, receive and obey God’s Word to faith. Preachers who say, “Place your Faith in God,” do not know what Faith is. Also, saying you can place your Faith in things of the world is incorrect because God would never speak to you to do that. Faith only comes from hearing, accepting and obeying God, all else is confidence, trust, hope , or wishful thinking, but not Faith. Faith never fails because Faith is based on God’s Word.

Jesus lived by His Faith, accepting and obeying His Father, we must live by OUR Faith, accepting and obeying our Father, and we will have the same Faith Jesus did.

Go to my website: rahardin.com and view some of the short videos, listen to some of the Podcasts under the Radio tab, and I hope you will become more engaged in seeking and serving God to prepare to meet Him. No matter how far off it is for some, we will all get there to answer how we spent our time here. Good Day and God Bless You !

Anxiety > Stress > Fear (Spirit of devil-2 Tim 1:7)

When you are struggling with a problem, it is almost impossible to solve your problem unless you are sure what the problem is and are familiar with it’s characteristics. Our country is probably 80% or more on pills for anxiety, stress, and fear problems. First, part of your solution is to recognize that FEAR is the devil, not an emotion. The devil will cause you to have all kind of crazy, horrible emotions, but it is his way to try to keep you from having enough clear thinking to seek God. The devil starts slowly to cause you to be anxious about some potential concern. He will cause things to happen to get you to analyze all the bad things that could happen to destroy any possible good outcome. In this process’ he will try to take you from just being anxious to becoming stressful, getting upset can’t eat or sleep properly, etc. YOU MUST attack this problem where you started with it, in your mind. Fear we learn from 2 Tim 1:7 is the devil manifested in the spirit to you. What is anxiety? Anxiety IS the combination of stress, fear and other emotions caused from you evaluating some potential event WITHOUT CONSIDERING GOD, HIS PROMISES AND PRESENCE with the concern!! So to relieve the stress, go back to the beginning in your mind and evaluate the concern with God in it with you! LOOK at God’s Word to you! Philippians 4:6-7, “BE ANXIOUS for nothing; but in every thing by prayer(talking to God)and supplication with thanksgiving(for things God has done in your past) let your requests be made known unto God. (7) And the PEACE of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” As soon as you recognize you are concerned or stressed about anything turn to God at the beginning, don’t wait. But if you did wait, turn back now! James 4:7 says almost the same thing, “Submit yourselves therefore to God (His Word of promises above).Resist the devil, and he will flee from you(his spirit of stress and fear). In 1 Corinthians 1:24 God’s Power and Wisdom (Pure Word) are stated as, “But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, CHRIST THE POWER OF GOD, AND THE WISDOM OF GOD.” Christ the living spoken Word of God is the all creating power of God, and Christ is the pure Word of God which is the Word of God. Therefore, as Christians we have all the power in us if we are in proper fellowship with God. Now, look at Proverbs 23:7, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he;…” Think on the above promises the instant doubt, anxiety,stress, fear or any other troubling thought enters your mind—PRAY–TAKE IT TO JESUS–1 Peter 5:7-8, “Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you (and died for you). (7) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour(those who are not praying.) AND ALSO, 2 Corinthians 10:4 says, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every THOUGHT to the obedience of Christ (God’s Living Word of promises.) You have to choose God & His Living Word or suffer the consequences! Romans 12:3, “And be not conformed to this world; but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, Will of God! Ephesians 4:23, “And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;” *****As Christians God has given us the free will to choose His Word and Will or to neglect it, He will back up what ever we choose. Look and all the sick Christians all across our society that the devil has deceived into trying to take the easy way out instead of submitting to God’s Word and resisting the devil. You can though if you make the choice and seek God’s Pure Word.
Go to my website; rahardin.com and look at the videos, listen to the podcasts of my radio messages. Because others neglect God’s Word and suffer, You don’t have to!

Faith Definition is Not Hebrews 11:1

First let me tell you something you might not have considered! Ministers do not go to college/seminaries to seek and study God’s Pure Word; they go to learn how to preach the Bible according to the denomination or group they have chosen to be a part of. This is the reason so many ministers in our society are preaching so many errors–And FAITH is one of the most misused word in the present Christian Society. Proverbs 30:5-6, “Every Word of God is pure, He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him. (6) Add thou not unto His Words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” (1) If we change any of God’s Word, He will not back us up, even if we are sincere and are using an incorrect “word” we have been taught by our leaders! Hebrews 11:1 says about faith, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Ministers of all denominations say this is God’s definition of faith. It is serious because what if it isn’t the definition of faith? Then all these preachers are “lying” to us and don’t know what faith is! Heb 11:6 says that it is impossible to please God without faith! Suppose, you hope to come home to a dark house and decide or hope to turn the electric lights on. You flip the switch and the lights come on fulfilling your hope. Now, you could say, electricity is the substance of things hoped for( lights coming on) and the evidence is the light from the unseen electricity. That is not a definition of electricity. The light coming on is only evidence that electricity is present as we had hoped. If you see a windmill out in a field with the blades turning, you could say the wind is fulfilling our hopes to turn the windmill blades even tho we cannot see the wind, the blades are turning. Again, you could say that the wind is the substance fulfilling our hopes to turn the windmill blades and the evidence is seeing the arms of the windmill turning. But, again that is not a definition of wind. It only says when you see the windmill blades turning you can know the wind is causing your hope to be fulfilled and turn the blades. Heb 11:1 is only saying that when you see your hopes being fulfilled you know the substance fulfilling your hopes it faith. Then, the rest of Heb 11 tells how the great men and women of the Old Testament saw their hopes being fulfilled and knew it was their faith that did it.
Now what is faith. Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” (1)We have to know we have heard God’s Pure Word (Prov 30:5-6) above. (2) Psalms 119:9, “Wherewithal shall a young man (woman) cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according to Thy Word.” We have to hear, accept and heed God’s Pure Word!(3) If you reject, it will be like the Children of Israel who rejected God and His Word and failed to enter the promise land because of unbelief in Heb 3:12-19-“…So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief” God and His Word are One and the same, that is why we can’t please God by rejecting, changing or disobeying His Word to unbelief–We must accept and obey His Pure Word to faith. A person does not have faith until they accept and receive God’s Word, dragging your feet, wrestling with it, etc is like in 1 Samuel 15:23 – For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubborness( dragging your feet) is as iniquity and idolatry– you are trying to find a way out instead of accepting and receiving!

Please view my videos, books and listen to my recent programs. I explain much more about faith in the messages. Also I am on Twitter: @Hrdy777 ,and Itunes. If you have a question or comment my email is: gpwf@yahoo.com Have a great day!!

Milestones in Ministry

This week two milestones have been reached: 17,000 “hits” on my programs, and 700 programs since 7 Dec 14. The hits do not mean that many people actually listened, they may have clicked in and then clicked back out since most people do not like to talk about or read about “religious” beliefs. The program started out on Sunday mornings 6-8am, but I couldn’t stand waiting a week for the next one, so the owners let me have MWF 7-8am. That was a little confusing on keeping up with the days off and on, so they let me just take every morning. Some of you may have noticed that my programs are replays lately. One main reason for that is I have been speaking and showing Scriptures that are being misused, misquoted, and sometimes taught completely opposite in our Christian Community. You ask or wonder how that could be, I do too! When I became a Christian, received the Spirit of Christ into my heart in 1974, I started searching the Scriptures for almost everything. Such a change had taken place in me, it was fantastic and I couldn’t tell enough people. As I started listening to all the gospel radio programs I could find and reading books, when Scriptures were given I would get excited and look them up! I started seeing that the written Scriptures many times did not say what the writers or speakers had said that the Scriptures said. I found that with all the different “denominations”, and groups in our Christian Community all teaching from the same “Bibles” and many versions, but coming up with many times opposite beliefs, (speaking of tongues is of the devil or speaking of tongues is the greatest thing there is) I had to start searching out these many different areas. My programs and my 6 books are the result of the many serious errors that I have found that you need to be aware of to be able to receive God’s Pure Word for yourself, which is only what He will back up. It is so SERIOUS because many denominational errors are so anti-Christ that belief in them will cause the members to miss heaven, and the other alternative is not where you want to be. Just because a denomination mentions Jesus does not mean they have the right teachings for salvation like Jesus says in Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? (23)And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” If there will be any tears in heaven, it will be Jesus having to tell these “Church going Christians that they did not receive Him into their hearts.” I was in church from 9 yrs old at a Bapt Childrens Home in Mphs, Tn. went to church every Sunday, Wednesday, and 10 days for Spring and Fall revivals, for 9 yrs, got baptized the first day I went out there so I would be a “christian,” but I found our at age 33 all that religious activity I had been involved in was as Jesus said above, “works of iniquity” He was not in my heart. Your greatest task here on Earth is to find our your correct relationship with God which is not being taught very clearly in our society by any denomination or group. You are going to have to set yourself to see God personally. Start asking Him questions that you know only He could answer if He is a God and wants a personal relationship with you. Give Him an opportunity to teach you about Himself. Jesus says we must all be taught by God to come to Him (Jesus) Well, I can’t repeat all that my programs cover but if you have not been listening to them, try some out. I am not trying to make money off the gospel, but I do have 6 books which are very low cost, 5 are about $7 and the other is $10. Have a good day!

Daily Struggle With Walking By Faith

Things come against or into our lives daily that cause us to wonder where is God. One of the troublesome area is with our health. I was told in April by a heart doctor that a valve in my heart was leaking so bad I need to have something done immediately. He sent me to a specialist valve doctor. There were about six weeks wait since the paperwork got messed up. During that time, I started climbing stairs each day to strengthen my heart since it is a muscle. I worked up to 600 steps a day before I saw the specialist. My heart had improved to where the specialist heart doctor told me that it was too risky to do two of the heart tests that were scheduled and that I should just go home and come back next year. My heart had improved that much in about a month of climbing stairs and watching my eating that the tests were more dangerous than the condition of my heart. He told me to go home and come back next year! Thank you Lord Jesus! Well in the glee, a few days later I was still taking light doses of blood pressure meds and mixed them with a few vitamins pills from health food center. Evidently, the combination had some side effects of vertigo and when I was in a hurry one Sat morning, I took them all at the same time. OOPS! About an hour later I was vomiting and my stomach was burning me up. I went to ER and the calmed it down but I could barely walk. I was like a drunk without having drank anything. For a couple days I bounced down the halls in my house from side to side. I continued to work out, added some balance exercises and have reduced the effects from about a 10 down to about a 1, still working on them. I have lost about 12 lbs, blood pressure down the 120s or low 130s.
My problem. I know all sicknesses are from the devil. Look in Deut 28, there are no sicknesses on the Blessing side, all sicknesses are on the curses side. We are supposed to have a shield of faith in Ephesians 6:16 to shield us from ALL the fiery darts of the devil. Therefore, I must have some or a big hole in my shield. How do we get holes in our shield?? In 2 Corinthians 2:10-11 the Scripture states that if we fail to forgive others we will be giving satan advantage in our lives. Also, the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:12, “And forgive us our debts, AS we forgive out debtors.” First Peter 3:7 says husbands to treat wives as joint heirs of the grace of life that your prayers be not hindered. Many problems we face are due to our failing to obey Scriptures. Pray for me, I’ll pray for you.

Prayer, Exercise, Eating Better and Health Supplements from a ” Concerned Daughter.”

There has been a lot of ups and downs lately which I’m sure you’ll experience often too. After lifting weights (250 lbs bench press age 73) in the gym a few yrs ago my family Doc said he heard some leakage from one of my heart valves. He recommended I go see a Heart Doc at the local Heart Hosp. The Doc ran tests and said come back next year. That went on for a couple years until April 12th this year. He said it had become serious and that I should see a valve specialist for treatment with one option being open heart operation. Like King Hezekiah in 2 Kings 20:1-11 when God said, “Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live,” I didn’t like the idea of an operation either. Being an engineer, I decided to include walking up and down four flights of stairs that lead to our gym each day to strengthen the “flapper muscle.” The heart is or is like a big muscle and there must be some part of it that causes the continuous opening and closing of the valve. I increased to 10 sets of the four flights, or 580 steps daily until my appt with the specialist on May 18th. I was scheduled for 8 tests that day: breathing, EKG, Echo and several others which included a camera into the heart from up through the groin and one through my nose down to the heart. Well, when they finished the first 6 easy tests the Doc came in and said I was too healthy to take the other two tests to view the heart. He said my heart was working so good that taking the two camera tests were more dangerous than the condition of my heart. He told me there would be no cost for the first 6 tests, gave my wife and me a free lunch and sent me home. My valve is still leaking a little but not anything like it was when the first Doctor saw me. My prayer was answered because I had been praying that when I got there the Doc would say that I was too healthy and or didn’t need the surgery and God helped me do it. So as the Scripture says in Philippians 4:6, “Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Don’t wait like a lot of people who finally say, “Well, all we can do now is pray.” Let what causes you to start becoming anxious be your trigger to immediately set your self to prayer like King Hezekiah did in 2 Kings 20:1-11 and King Jehoshaphat did in 2 Chronicles 20:1-26. PS: In 1987 when a Doc said on the phone, “Mr Hardin you have melanoma cancer,” the Lord took care of that too without even one treatment.
