Colossians 3:1 Seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
8 Put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.
Do not let these things rule you because of political, social, or cultural leanings put them to death as it says in verse 5.
If you want all these things to be better, be better than the things you want to be better. Now we reach the crux of the matter! You cannot do it alone. Man is not able! But with God all things are possible.
Matthew 19:26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Humble yourself before God and confess that you are a sinner and He will look down and see and hear.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Confess your sins now and your life will change. All the heaviness of discouragement, sadness, and helplessness will be a thing of the past. You will feel something you never felt before. FREEDOM! Receive total freedom from the shackles of sin and the constant pull of Satan the Devil who wants you to stay in this worlds system that he controls.
JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY ANSWER! ACCEPT HIM NOW!
The blessings of the love of God are upon you, in Jesus name, amen!
Always know that Jesus loves you!
He paid a great price so that you could be free of sin and receive the heavenly blessings of God the Father. Romans 5:8 God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus was the Word! John 1:14 The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. Hebrews 1:3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the WORD of His power.
Jesus came to this earth as a flesh and blood man, at about the age of thirty; he started His ministry that only lasted three and a half years. He was taken by the Jews and given to the Romans and charged with treason! Matthew 27:28-31 And they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” Then they spat on Him, and took the reed and struck Him on the head. And when they had mocked Him, they took the robe off Him, put His own clothes on Him, and led Him away to be crucified. He was scourged with a “cat of nine tails” until the flesh of His body was ripped to pieces. Jesus nearly bled out and was unable to carry His cross to Golgotha they found man of Cyrene, Simon by name and had him carry the cross for Jesus. The Roman soldiers nailed Jesus to the cross with huge nails in His hands and feet, later a soldier rammed a spear into Jesus’ side.
Jesus willingly allowed all these things to happen and died so you could be saved!
By His stripes you are healed! He shed His blood so your sins would be forgiven! You are the ones who are sinners and deserve to die but Jesus willingly took your place and died for you! He was in the tomb for three days and rose on the third day, resurrected to life and ascended to the throne of God in heaven and lives ruling over all things.
He did it all for you so you could be saved and live in glory with God for eternity!
Receive Him as your personal savior today! No matter whom you are or what you have done, Jesus loves you and wants to set you free from sin! Confess to Jesus that you are a sinner and you want Jesus to come into your life. Surrender yourself to Jesus now and receive eternal life. He is waiting to receive you now! Tomorrow may be too late!
Dear heavenly Father please help sinners understand this message and respond to it for all the glory it will give to them and You! In Jesus name, amen!
Are you intense, stressed out and have hypertension as you strive to achieve your goals in life? Do you think about what every new day has in store for you? Have you planned for contingencies in life such as mid life crisis? I ask that in particular as I did not prepare for it and was totally not ready for the things that took place. The problem was, I didn’t understand how certain events in life can produce enormous pressure on me and not really be aware what was causing it; such as, my daughter’s wedding, my brother having a massive stroke and almost died, my son joining the army instead of accepting a full scholarship to USC, my father died, and then my mother died. There is more but that should suffice to get the point across. It caused me to unconsciously become depressed and not be on top of my game in society. In my case, I was not familiar with mid life crisis and didn’t realize what affect it was having on me until I asked one of my church elders for advice about my condition. After having asked me a lot of questions, he asked me if I was familiar with mid life crisis and I answered, not really. The first thing he did was pray with me about it asking God to give me understanding what I was going through, then he told me that I was having full blown case of mid life crisis. Jesus is very familiar with being stressed out and understands what we go through. He knew what was waiting for Him on the cross as He asked the Father to take away the problem but always submitted Himself to His God. Matthew 26:39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” James 5:13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray.
He explained in great detail what it is all about and how it works. This was all new to me! God has much to say about such things in our life.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:
2 A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;
3 A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away;
7 A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak;
8 A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.
Ecclesiastes 9:11 I returned and saw under the sun that — The race is not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor bread to the wise, Nor riches to men of understanding, Nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all.
Ecclesiastes 1:9 That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun.
God revealed all of this to King Solomon so he could record it for us to learn. The problem exists that people do not want to believe God. Therefore, they do not receive the blessings God wants to give them and they suffer many of the afflictions mentioned above. Psalms 78:22 Because they did not believe in God, And did not trust in His salvation. But if they give themselves over to God and believe what He says they will receive His help in time of need. Psalms 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all.
Are you seeking an answer to our problems in life? There is an answer! 1Corinthians 15: 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Matthew 19:26 With God all things are possible.
Seek peace and pursue it through Jesus! He is waiting for you to ask Him! God bless you!
INOE is like a lighthouse to the lost! Our light shines bright to those who need safe harbor from sin leading them to the comfort of the holiness of God the Father through His Son Jesus. Receive the light of Christ now and the burdens of sin will be lifted from your shoulders. You will be free and filled with the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
John 8:12 I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.
If you are having financial difficulties, problems in your family life, pressures at work, some form of addiction or feel like you are at the bottom of the barrel and no way out, Jesus can change everything. It is strange how people will try out just about anything to see how it works but when it comes to personal problems they tend to not want to try anything that might help them. It’s not tangible, it is not something they can touch and see. Faith is not seen but is very powerful in your life!
Matthew 17:20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
Jeramiah 29:11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
TRUST IN THE LORD FOR HE IS REAL AND WANTS TO HELP YOU! HE WILL LISTEN TO YOU! YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE AND EVERYTHING TO GAIN! GOD LOVES YOU! BELIEVE! GOD BLESS YOU!
