YES YOU CAN PREACH THE GOSPEL

Saul was persecuting the Church at Jerusalem and casting many into prison. He also stood by and held the cloaks of those who stoned Stephen. Because of this great persecution of the Church, the members left Jerusalem and went into surrounding regions. But notice the scripture says they went everywhere PREACHING the WORD. Anyone who is sanctified to be Holy by Jesus Christ can preach the Word.

Acts 8: 1, 4 At that time a great persecution arose against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere PREACHING THE WORD.
Jude 1:1 Jude, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, To those who are called, sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ:

By ecclesiastical terms "sanctified" means: consecrated or made holy.

THANK GOD and blessings to all who are preaching the Word via blogs, websites, and all the media sites available. Spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout all of the world for the first time in the history of the world.

It is Christ who commands us to preach the Word!

Mark 16:15 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

Now, more than ever, the general population needs to be saturated with the Gospel message of salvation by Jesus Christ. Now is your time to truly be a living sacrifice for Christ. PREACH!

Pew theology does not satisfy the needs of the unsaved. Preaching to entertain or make you feel good in your pew at church doesn’t get it done. Having a long list of ministries by your name does not satisfy the down to the earth grass root gospel preaching to the unsaved. The unsaved is where the emphasis should be. Not to please those in the pews. Wake up America! We need missionaries as much as any country in the world. Is your neighbor saved? Do you even know? Share the Gospel!

God bless!

Preach the Word of Glory!

CALLING THE UNSAVED OF THE WORLD

Through internet evangelism this message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is proclaimed to the unsaved of the world.

There are great rewards awaiting those who respond to Christ!

Mark 13:10 And the gospel must first be preached to all the nations. (The unsaved of the world)

On this day I speak out publicly to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ as given to us by the Holy scriptures. 1Corinthians 15:1-4

  • By this Gospel you are saved. This is the good news of the kingdom of God.
  • Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures. He shed His blood for the remission of all the world’s sins past, present, and future. He sacrificed Himself for us while we were yet in our sins because of His great love for mankind. Christ became our eternal atonement!
  • Christ was buried but His body never saw the corruption of the grave. We are buried in a watery grave by baptism in memorial to His being buried.
  • Christ rose from the grave on the third day according to the scriptures and ascended to His new throne of glory. We are raised a new creature to a newness of life and our citizenship is forever in heaven.

None can come to Christ unless God the Father draws them to Him.

 John 6:44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him

When you are drawn to Christ you must repent and confess that you are a sinner.

Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

If you are reading this and you have never been saved then you are being drawn to Jesus Christ at this moment. You have a crown waiting for you don’t lose it by not responding to this call to salvation now!

TRUST CHRIST!

Ephesians 1:13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation

HE WILL GIVE YOU THE VICTORY!

1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

There are Christian churches all over the world. There is probably one very close to you and their doors are open to anyone who wants to attend every Sunday. Go and feel something you will never feel anywhere else.

 If you need help contact me through my prayer requests page.

DON’T MISS THIS! AMEN!

THE WHAT IFS OF SALVATION NOW

What if I told you that there will be no more wars, famine, disease, crime, global warming, tears, sorrow, or death. Would that interest you? What if there was no more need for divorce or remarriage and abortions. Wouldn’t it be desirable to have a society like that? Besides all of that wouldn’t it be nice to have a great reward given to you, a new name, new body that never gets sick, a new home for free, set on a throne as a king, live forever and share all the great glory of the Creator God and be as He is.
All you have to do is believe that Jesus is the Son of God, confess your sins and receive Jesus into your life as your Master and King. Jesus will then give you the free gift of eternal life and citizenship in heaven immediately. Pray to Jesus that He will come into your life and do all these things for you. Even before you do this, know that Jesus has already shed His blood and died on the cross for you in advance. All your sins have already been forgiven and now He wants you to confess that you are a sinner and want to be clean of all iniquity and receive salvation.
Matthew 3: 16-17 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
It is up to you to choose life or death. Life for eternity with God or cast into the lake of eternal fire.

Choose life now! Pray to Jesus now! Don’t hesitate just do it! Time is getting short!

God bless you amen!

WHAT IS FAITH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS

Let’s look at a brief definition of these two Christian virtues. The key word here is “brief” as the complete Holy bible is about faith and righteousness.

  • Faith is a secure and unquestioning belief in God, a trusting acceptance of God’s will and truth.

  • Righteousness is being spiritually and morally upright; without guilt or sin.

We receive salvation and hope of eternal life by the grace and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

We become a new creation different from all others in the world. We are unique as we have eternal life in us now. We will go on living even after this corruptible body we are entombed in returns to the dust of the ground. We need the righteousness of Christ in us as our righteousness is described by God as a filthy rag.  Isaiah 64:6 But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags. But through the grace of Christ we are made Holy, sanctified, and a temple of the Holy Spirit. The perfect, sinless body of Christ resides in us NOW. We need to be reminded of this that we are Holy, belonging to Jesus Christ, bought and paid for with the high price of His blood. We are no longer of this world. We are citizens of heaven.

Galatians 3:7-9, 14 Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.” So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham. that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Romans 4:5, 11 But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness

As I said earlier we need to be reminded and how are we reminded? God’s Word says by preaching!

Romans 10:14-15 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ” How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!”
Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.

The preaching of faith and righteousness is for all men whether they are lost or saved. We are to grow in the grace and righteousness of Jesus Christ. Those of us who are saved are all preachers of righteousness we are called to be priests of God. Spread the truth of faith and righteousness for all the earth to hear.

2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

The fields are ripe for the harvest and needs many workers!

God bless your preaching!

WHAT IS EASTER TO YOU?

In about three weeks a celebration of a very special event in life of Jesus Christ takes place.
Just about everyone in this nation knows about Easter, but for a lot of different reasons. Some people are glad to see it because it represents another weekend when they can go camping or some other pleasurable thing. To some others it is a day that they do not understand why people make such a fuss about. And then there are the believers in Jesus Christ who celebrate His resurrection from the dead and His ascension to heaven. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most important and dramatic event to take place for his believers. The reason is simple for them to understand because it defines who they are and that their belief is something that is genuine because if it did not happen then everything Christians believe in is a lie and there is no such thing as eternal life in heaven and Jesus is not the Son of God.
But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen.  And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up — if in fact the dead do not rise. For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! —1 Corinthians 15: 13-17
Much of the world does not know nor believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ but those who do believe know that Christ has indeed risen from the dead and sets on the throne of God in heaven. The resurrection of Christ represents the greatest event in the history of mankind.
But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming. Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. — 1 Corinthians 15: 20-24
Those who believe in the resurrection of Christ possess the greatest hope and future for mankind. They will inherit great blessings. They will have eternal life, a new body, new name, new home, a great reward, share God’s glory and share the very throne of Jesus Christ.
But someone will say, “How are the dead raised up? And with what body do they come?” But God gives it a body as He pleases — 1 Corinthians 15:35, 38
So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” ” O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. — ! Corinthians 15: 54-57
Those who are not Christians do not have any hope in anything except what happens today and tomorrow will take care of its self. They are already dead. Christians have eternal life dwelling in them at this moment and God gave them His holy spirit as a guarantee that this is true.
1 Corinthians 6: 19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
Easter is a time to give praise and glory to Jesus for He is alive and has risen from the dead that we may also be resurrected to eternal life. It is through Jesus Christ that we are saved, He is the way, the truth, and the life.

Call upon His name now and you shall be saved!

 

FIFTH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

I have covered four of the fruits of the Spirit in previous articles and now will get into the fifth fruit of the Spirit, kindness.

Kindness is one of those virtues of God that is just there. God’s kindness is the opposite of cruelty and exhibits compassion and sympathy. The definition of kindness in the Oxford dictionary is: the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Yet people can show the kindness defined in the dictionary and never be compassionate or considerate. God’s compassion is like shoving you out of the way of a bus and letting the bus hit Him instead. That is exactly what Christ did for us on the Cross and there is no greater kindness than that God would take on the flesh of a man and give His life for mankind on the Cross so that we could continue living forever.

The apostle Paul understood Godly kindness and suffered more than any man showing the kindness of Christ through him.

 2 Corinthians 11:25, 28 Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep; besides the other things, what comes upon me daily:

2 Corinthians 6:4, 6 But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God:…, by kindness

Ephesians 2:4 -7 God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Paul also tells us that we as believers are to follow his example and display the kindness of Christ who lives in us.

Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness

Read the Holy Word of God and pray that you understand what the real spiritual kindness of God is all about. Follow His example not the ways of this world.

I pray that God blesses you and gives you peace.

 

 

PREACHER, TEACHER, WHAT ARE YOU?

preach-it-teach-it-live-it

Preaching the gospel is the most wonderful, scintillating, and powerful way to communicate to another human being. Jesus’ believers know that from the time they wake up till they go to sleep at night, they should seek any opportunity to share the truth about the Grace of Jesus Christ with someone who is lost and is willing to hear. It is truly exciting! The angels in heaven sing praises to God for every one who is saved.

 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?  that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. – Romans 10:14, 9-10, 17

There was a time when the Church in Jerusalem was persecuted so severely the believers were driven out of Jerusalem but did that discourage them from preaching the gospel? No! Everywhere that they went they shared the good news of the Kingdom of God and salvation through Jesus Christ.

And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.- Acts 8:1, 4  

One doesn’t have to be ordained to teach the Word of God. Jesus made it plain enough that we are commanded to teach others what He has taught us. At one time Jesus sent out 70 disciples to teach His word to anyone who would listen.

For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.- Hebrews 5:12-14

Don’t be idle as one on milk! Spread the Gospel! There are literally billions of people on this earth who are not saved especially in China and India, the two most over populated nations in the world. And above all, pray that you be given opportunity as Jesus commands.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: – Matthew 28:19-20

Jesus is effectually sending all believers out to teach the word of God.

I pray that Jesus blesses you all that you bear much fruit!
