Tomorrow, Sunday August 20, 2017, is the great prayer day sat aside for the express purpose of praying for the unsaved of the world. We of the International Network of Online Evangelists, “INOE” are sponsoring the annual INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE UNSAVED – 2017. All Christians are invited, even encouraged, to unite in prayer with us this Sunday for a minimum of five minutes to lift up our voices to God that He would open the hearts of people all over the world to receive Jesus for eternal salvation to the glory of God.
Ephesians 6:18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit.
Dear heavenly Father, please stir the hearts of your believers to participate in prayer and accept these prayers for the salvation of the lost souls of the world that you may be glorified. In Jesus name Amen!
What is the most important thing to you in life?
God, love, family, health, friends, happiness, knowledge…..?
The following comment was made by an individual responding to a recent poll about how important God is in our lives:
“What has he done for me? Is my life depending on him or is my life depending on what I’m doing with it? My life is well without believing in him. I really don’t care about someone I never knew, because if I do I should care for all people I don’t even know. And doing that is something not very sane. It’s not normal. I don’t care for people I don’t know because they can be all bad as far as I know.”
Proverbs 30:3 I neither learned wisdom Nor have knowledge of the Holy One.
WOW! Do you see what this person is saying? IT IS NOT NORMAL TO CARE ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE! He does not want to be abnormal and care about God, who he does not know, may mean that he would have to care about other people, who this person does not know. How sad! This is the epitome of an unsaved person who does not want to know the God who sent His only Son to take on the flesh of a man of this world and sacrifice Himself on the CROSS spilling His blood for the sins of the world so that person can be saved from eternal judgment. Why would he want that?
Ecclesiastes 6:12 For who knows what is good for man in life, all the days of his vain life which he passes like a shadow? Who can tell a man what will happen after him under the sun?
Those who do not know God and say that He does not exist and like to make disparaging remarks about those who do believe in God are scared to the core to actually try to know God because they are intensely afraid that they may find out that God really exists. They only think in terms of an entity of God in a single dimension. They identify God as a mythical entity. In other words they don’t know much about the subject of God, only what they imagine He is like in their own minds.
Job 18:21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, And this is the place of him who does not know God.”
How do you feel about yourself?
Are you normal or abnormal? Down deep inside where only you know how you think and feel, do you have a perfect feeling about yourself? Have you successfully fulfilled your dreams in life? Have you been a failure about any important things? Are you so filled with joy that there is no room for more? Do you feel an emptiness that needs filling? What do you really care about? These are all important questions that anyone should be concerned about! It doesn’t make any difference where on earth you live; they are all pertinent to you.
Job 42: 2, 5-6 ” I know that You can do everything, And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You “. I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.”
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
You are hearing His voice now! This is how God speaks to your heart! Today is a day of salvation! God wants more than anything to give you His blessings. He will share His glory with you if you will receive Him into your heart.
I pray that your response will be to allow God into your life so he can pour out His grace upon you, that you may have eternal life from this time forward. Great rewards await you. Let this be the beginning of your new life.
In the name of Jesus, Amen!
What better retirement benefits can you get than these? Working for Jesus Christ really does have its perks!
We get a new body. 1 John 3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
We share Christ’s throne. Revelation 3:21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
We share His glory. 1 Peter 5:4 and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.
We receive a great reward in heaven. Luke 6:23 Rejoice in that day and leap for joy! For indeed your reward is great in heaven,
You will be given a high position in heaven. Revelation 3:12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God
You will receive eternal life! Revelation 2:7 I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.
God be praised! Join Him, surrender your life to Jesus Christ and be saved, share His everlasting retirement benefits.
I pray you are blessed by God and are called to His eternal kingdom.
Preaching the Word of glory! Amen!
Please join me and INOE in prayer on the International Day Of Prayer For The Unsaved-2017 August 20th.
There are approximately 6 billion unsaved people on the earth. The world is ripe for the harvest!
When God the Father calls you to Christ and you are saved, it is not by “your faith” but by the faith and righteousness of Christ in you. God says your faith and righteousness is as a filthy rag to Him. Your faith was of the wisdom of world. So it is by the power of the faith of Christ that you are saved. Thanks to the glory of God!
When you are saved, believe in your new faith, do not fear the worlds pitfalls, be bold and fervent standing up to worldly assaults. Deal with it and be passionate for the Lord will never leave you.
The only way you can see faith is by its results!
Faith is neither tangible nor visible but you can feel and view faith by the spiritual fruits of your life. Look at yourself; scrutinize your inward person to be sure you are following Jesus who is in you. You become a living sacrifice for Christ by faith but still live in your corruptible body even though Jesus loved you so much He died for you on the cross so that you might live. In so doing God gave you a great gift, the gift of grace something you were not qualified for or deserved. Christ gave Himself because of His great love for you.
Now you must live in faith but even then it is not your greatest asset for that is reserved for love which is the greatest force of all. With Christ in you, you are filled with the love of God.
Here are eight scriptures giving insight and guidance on faith.
- Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, … Romans 5:1
- that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God…1 Corinthians 2:5.
- Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong….1 Corinthians 16:13
- For we walk by faith, not by sight….2 Corinthians 5:7
- Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? … 2 Corinthians 13:5
- I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. … Galatians 2:20
- For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, … Ephesians 2:8
- And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. …1 Corinthians 13:13
Seek faith and pursue it earnestly in Jesus Christ and your reward in heaven will be great.
God bless you!
Preaching the Word of glory!
