Hi all and welcome to my site
My name Trevor McNamee.
I live in a small town south west of Perth Western Australia.
I was born again while attending a Baptist youth camp on Easter Saturday night, 1973.Age 16 yrs old.
I was bought up in a Godly home by my parents Peter and Nancy McNamee Along with my 2 sisters and brother.All are Born Again.Our Children are Born Again,And their Children my grandchildren,except for my oldest son(please pray for them and His 5 children)
I was called to be an Elder Of a small AOG church in the mid 2000’s,where I preached and held several bible studies in my own home and other people’s homes as invited.
AOG believed salvation could be lost,the pastor knew my position and with the other Elder,agreed that it was ok for me to preach Eternal Security.The Church went through some difficult times with oneness Pentecostal believers telling people they were not saved because they hadn’t been baptised in “the name of Jesus only”.So I know Of the difficulties these people can cause in a church.My message was basically the Good news of the Grace of God,And was given the nick name “the Grace man”
God Also at an early time in my Christian walk gave me a burden for the Indigenous peoples of Australia and worked,taught and preached along side of Ps Bob Brown,Ps Ben Mason
Fast forward I left the church and because of my own PRIDE while at another AOG church(details not necessary,except to say,I have repented and put things right with those who it concerned),I vowed to never set foot into a church again.Which I didn’t for approx 15 yrs
Had a complete nervous breakdown.Spiritual,Mentally and Physical breakdown,leaving me with Major Depression and Anxiety.that led to me losing everything I owned,.My business,investments,Losing and becoming divorced and causing so much hurt to my Family.I attempted suicide several times and my daughter tells on one occasion me,I flat lined 3 times in the Emergency Department Of a hospital.
Thing were not good in just about every aspect of my life Imoved states to escape things.eventually settling down in my current location,with my own small 1 bedroom unit.
My youngest daughter kept calling me and encouraged me saying, God has a purpose in this Dad.Your still alive.He has kept you alive for a reason,for a purpose.He hasn’t left you.Dad your message of Gods Grace that you preached and taught ,is so needed today. She encouraged me to seek him,just find some good ministry on YouTube and watch them.Which after a few yrs I did.
Then one night while watching a video series by a Pastor,God broke through to me and by the Holy Spirit showed me many things that I had done and why I was were I currently was with Him.Basically due to my pride,my busyness at work and playing hard,with no thoughts towards God,except on occasions going to bed and praying Please God don’t let me wake up.And when I did wake up the next morning being really p’d off at God cos I was still here. I kept being reminded of Paul and God telling Him,My Grace is sufficient for you.Wasnt what I wanted to hear.
He impressed on me ,That He never left nor forsook me,but what I had gone through and was going through.Was His Hand Of chastising and discipline .I can attest that it is in deed a fearful thing to fall into the hands of God,when we are disobedient as I was.
But here is the unbelievable purpose of God in chastising us as His Children,It Works in us the peaceable fruits of righteousness.Through confession and repentance towards God
Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Heb 12:3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
Heb 12:4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
Heb 12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
Heb 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
Heb 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
Heb 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave themreverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
Heb 12:10 For they verily for a few days chastened usafter their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that wemight be partakers of his holiness.
Heb 12:11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them
I still was very reluctant to goto church.Then one morning I was reading my bible,I had to buy one,I read forsake not the assembling together with the Saints.So I started looking for a Baptist Church to goto.
I found one that had PM services,actually the only one that did have.Claremont Baptist Church.Western Australia.I attended it and it was just like walking into Home.I was introduced to the Pastor and others and made very welcome.
I found out that they had just started PM services as God led them 6 mths before hand.Which is amazing because it was about that time God showed me to start going to church.God Works out His purposes in amazing ways.
So God is leading me as I submit to Him,which led me to starting this Website.Having noticed in FB groups I was in that so many people didn’t believe in Eternal Security and it grieved me.God gives us Eternal Life ,when we trust only on the Finished Work Of the Cross,by Christ for Salvation not by any works we do,not by any law keeping.And seals us until the day of redemption.
So you will find many posts in regards to Eternal Security.
I also noticed a lot of fb groups about Calvinism and Arminianism,neither of which I am…..I am a Born Again Christian.
However the terrible doctrine of Calvinisms ,tulip,and the terrible doctrine of the Arminian,That Salvtion can be lost is the reason I have many posts refuting both and many posts with good exigesical teaching of the Scriptures In context.
It is a dangerous way to understand scripture,by using scripture out of context,with other scriptures out of context and then say “see this is what scripture says”….. Scripture is to be understood in context.The adage a scripture out of context is a pretext,is so true and dangerously leads to false doctrines,false teaching and is usually the means by which cults and onother gospel is presented and used to control people.
In Galations Paul says this about other gospelsif any angel or person preach another gospel,ather than the one that He preached,that of the Grace of Christ let them be accursed
Gal 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
Gal 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
