JESUS, ANSWER TO DEPRESSION?

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!

JESUS, THE LIGHT TO THE LOST

 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!

GOD’S GLORY FOR THE UNSAVED

The bible says that the way the world is today is the way it was in the days of Noah. Things will probably get much worse as the end has not yet come upon the world as described in Matthew 24. In Matthew 24 Jesus Himself answers the question of when the end shall come and what it would be like. If you believe the Word of God is true and that Jesus is the Word of God (John 1:1); then, the world in Noah’s day was as technologically equal to or more so than the world today. They had about two thousand years to develop technology and lived to be about eight or nine hundred years old, just think what Einstein could have accomplished in nine hundred years.  These are what I like to refer to as provoking thoughts.  

Mark 16:15 Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Why these provoking thoughts now? Because so many things mentioned in Matthew 24 have already happened and are happening as I write and there are billions of people in this world who are unsaved and God clearly states in Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. We have a God given command to make sure everyone on earth has an opportunity to know about the saving grace and gospel of Jesus Christ so they can share in the glory God has waiting for them. God promises eternal life, a new perfect body, a new name, a new residence, a new city, a new world, a great reward, you will be a king and a priest and share His glory and His throne.

 Jesus came to this earth and became human flesh to establish His Church and shed His blood on the cross for the remission of all sins while all mankind was still in their sins. Jesus died on that cross in your place so you could live forever and receive the promises mentioned above.

Unsaved people are having the gospel shared with them by radio, TV, in the church pulpit, missionaries and by personal witnessing. But the fact remains that there are not enough unsaved people being reached by these means. But when God made the internet available, for the first time in history every household in the world can be reached directly or indirectly as never before.

If you are one of those that is being reached by the internet for the first time and are hearing about salvation through Jesus Christ right now, then praise be to God because you have the blessing of hearing about the God who created the heavens and the earth. Who loves you so much, that His Son Jesus willingly died on the cross, as the supreme atonement sacrifice for all mankind, so you could be saved and live in heaven with Him forever.

I pray that God open your heart to His Truth, now, as you read this and receive Christ as your savior. Pray for this salvation and you will receive it. In Jesus name, amen!

HOW DO YOU KNOW THERE IS ETERNAL LIFE?

 

ETERNAL LIFE MEANS ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED OR THERE WOULD BE NO ETERNAL LIFE!

There are those who teach that a believer could fall from grace and lose his salvation and they search for different translations, commentaries to find verses that say what they want it to say rather than what God ordained it to say. There is nothing wrong with using these various materials for research of God’s Truth but all too often it is manipulated. It is the Holy Spirits job to give us understanding of what Jesus teaches and to reveal the Truth. Millennialism has a real problem accepting the old ancient ways of the Bible.

UNDERSTAND THAT ETERNAL LIFE IS NOT ETERNAL LIFE IF IT IS NOT ETERNAL LIFE!

 John 10:28 And I give them eternal life; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.

1 John 2:25 And this is the promise that He has promised us — eternal life.

Eternal life is a gift Jesus gives when one receives Jesus into their heart (Romans 6:23 The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.) an confesses that he is a sinner.

1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Romans 10:9-13 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 “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”

To those who are trying so hard to sound so intellectual and theological to the point they actually say and believe that no one can understand the Bible unless someone like themselves explains it to them. However, the Bible tells plainly what God has to say about why He uses preachers.

1 Corinthians 1:18-21 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.  For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

The Bible always explains itself and reveals to our hearts what God wants us to know.

Hebrews 10:16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”

Dear heavenly Father write upon the fleshly table of our hearts Your spiritual truths and revelations as You promised You would thousands of years ago and even now in the new covenant according to Your own Word write your truth in our hearts and minds revealing Your glory to us individually. In Jesus name, amen!

THE SON GIVES LIFE

John 5:21-24 For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will. “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.

Great God in heaven the world is full of people who are still under the death penalty and need the saving grace of Jesus who being totally sinless died on the cross in their place so that they may have life. Open their hearts to receive the glorious salvation of Jesus Christ. In Jesus name, Amen!
