John 14: 6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

SO YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN

There have been surveys taken asking people if they were Christians. There were many who said no but of the many who said yes there were discrepancies. For example, there were some who felt they were Christians simply because they believed in God. So, is the issue about who believes in God?

 80% of Americans Believe in God. Pew Found Out What They Mean.

In the shifting spiritual landscape of the United States, Christians too can no longer assume that their friends and neighbors believe in the God of the Bible, if they believe in God at all.

Though God regularly gets evoked in prayer, platitudes, and phrases like “God bless America” and “in God we trust,” Americans—even within Christianity—have different conceptions of who God is and how he operates.

A Pew survey released today found that how people view God—and how they believe God interacts with them—shifts by religious affiliation, gender, and political party.

Even in an era where more of the nation doesn’t ascribe to a higher power at all (10%) or believes in some sort of higher power or spiritual force (33%), a slim majority of Americans (56%) still believe in God “as described in the Bible,” according to the Pew report.

According to Pew’s report, only 32 % of white Democrats believe in God as described in the Bible as compared to 72% of white republicans who believe in God as described in the Bible. That is very eye opening assuming the accuracy of the pole!

Understand that there is no mention of the Holy Spirit and without the Spirit nothing is understood or known.

John 14:26  But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

God’s pole is more accurate, believe God! Man’s pole talks about God but leaves out Christ when talking about Christians. They don’t understand the spiritual and that Jesus Christ is God.

Colossians 3:1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

 Jesus and the Holy Spirit actually dwell in Christians waiting the time they will also be joined to the Father! Therefore, two members of the Trinity dwell in the incorruptible inner man.

Romans 8:9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin.

Jesus is everything to a Christian! We must surrender our lives to Him and follow Him!

John 15: He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

If you are not a Christian and want to be then confess that you are a sinner and that Jesus is the Son of God and surrender your life to Him right now in prayer and you will be saved!

Dear heavenly Father, Please reach into the hearts of those who will read this blog and convict them into believing in Jesus as their Savior, in Jesus name, amen!

JUSTICE IS ON TRIAL

Justice is on trial in this nation because society has changed and demands blood instead of looking at the facts. False news is rampant throughout the nation. Our court system is corrupt and needs overhauling and when do you think that will ever happen? Psalms 82:2 How long will you judge unjustly, And show partiality to the wicked?  Well, don’t hold your breath because it may never happen.  The day is coming when there will be darkness over the land and evil will be prominent. 1 John 1:5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.

It is a time when all men will need to turn to God as there will be no other course to take. People will either go to hell or repent and believe that Jesus is the Christ and the Son of God and we need Him to be saved. He has already set the stage for all men to be saved by His shedding of His blood on the cross.

Believe on Him and you will be saved. John 3: 16 God so loved the world that he sent His only begotten son so whosoever believed on Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 

Admit that you are a sinner and need a SAVIOR! Only JESUS CHRIST can save you from the efernal death to come. Accept JESUS CHRIST as your SAVOR, NOW!

BUILD SPIRTUAL METTLE!

Does anyone remember what it means when someone says, “No pain, and no gain”? If we always have it easy and everything is handed to us on a silver platter doesn’t make life better. When a blacksmith works on a piece of metal he heats it at very high temperatures and hammers on it until it is shaped right. To build strong character and integrity we must be shaped the same way.  We have the perfect example of how this is accomplished by the sufferings of Jesus Christ.  Hebrews 5:8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. Yes, Jesus was the Son of God and He suffered many things to strengthen His mettle. (Word History: By the 1500s, English metal had also come to mean “the stuff one is made of, one’s character,” but there was no difference in spelling between the literal and figurative senses until about 1700, when the spelling mettle, originally just a variant of metal, was fixed for the sense “strength of character.”) Jesus Christ suffered so He understands how to help us shape our character to have divine mettle!

1 Peter 5:10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

Let Christ shape and perfect you into a fine work of spiritual character, strength, and integrity!

THE EFFECTS OF HEAVEN AND EARTH

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!

BE RESURRECTED TO LIFE

Jesus is risen and sets on the throne of God today and forever to rule over all things. He had to take on the form of a man in the flesh in order to present a worthy supreme sacrifice once and for all, for the sins of the world past present and future. All the people in the world today have had their sins forgiven. But in order to be born again, they must do what Jesus commanded them to do:  Romans 10:9 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. It is through the resurrection of Christ that we attain being born again! 1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. This is how important the resurrection of Jesus is to our having eternal life. The Apostle Paul explains very clearly how important the resurrection is to Christians. 1 Corinthians 15:13-20 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! Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.  But now Christ is risen from the dead!

Today is Easter Sunday! If you have never confessed your sins to Christ, today would be a most appropriate time to let Jesus know that you want Him to come into your life so that you may be saved. Don’t lose out by procrastination. Surrender to Him now! God bless you! In Jesus name, amen!

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU WILL BE RESURRECTED?

There is only twenty nine more days to Easter! This is a good time to ask why Easter is so important. Is it special to you or is it just another religious day to be observed? Easter has an important message for everyone, whether they attend church or not. Those who have been raised in a Christian home have known about Easter all their lives but many people do not know what Easter is all about and what it means to them. So why do we observe it? Is there a special message about Easter?

Easter is a time when we give special worship to Jesus Christ for something He did! We celebrate Easter because it gives us assurance that when we die we will go to heaven to be with Jesus. Jesus did something very special after He was crucified on the cross. He had been buried in the tomb for three days and then rose again to life and ascended to the throne of God. Our Savior lives!

John 10:15, 17-18, As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

Jesus had the power to lay His life down and take it back up again. He specifically came to the earth to take on the flesh of a man for this enormously important purpose.

The Apostle Paul explains why He had to rise from the grave! Jesus was the most valuable to the Father so He was the only one who could do what He did!  He conquered death and made it possible for mankind to be resurrected to eternal life. He became the first born!

Romans 8:29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

By His unselfish act of dying for us on the cross and then rising from the dead, Christ made it possible for us to live for eternity. His resurrection confirms our resurrection to be assured. That is how important it is!

1 Corinthians 15:3-4, 14, 20, For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.  And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. But now Christ is risen from the dead!

Read 1Corintians 15 and be filled with the Truth of God what Easter is all about! When Sunday, April 1, 2018, gets here, make it a point to attend a church service near you and celebrate this most important occasion in all our lives.

Dear heavenly Father, please hear my prayer for all who are lost without Jesus in their lives. I pray that you will convict the hearts of those who read this Easter message and bring them to understanding of the Truth of salvation through Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus, amen!

JESUS’ LIGHT AND SATAN’S DARKNESS

Did you know that you live in a conundrum of darkness and light! Some people live in darkness and do not realize it and yet they see all things in the world with their eyes imagining they are seeing things in the light. How can this be? In the bible, Jesus says; “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” (John 8:12) Jesus is the light of life but Satan the Devil is the king of darkness and death. Jesus says in the bible that; the lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. (Luke 11:34)

Jesus loves you and wants you to have His light dwelling in you.

 Too many people are being led by the power of Satan and consequently their lives are often in a shambles. Accept Jesus into your life and let His light shine in you. Because He wants; to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.” (Acts 26:18)

Don’t keep stumbling around in the darkness of Satan’s world! Act now! Jesus is the only way! Be free from the shackles and bondage of Satan’s dark world. Pray that the peace and light of Jesus Christ will come into your life today!

My prayer is that the pure, saving and holy light of Jesus Christ will enter into the lives of those who read this message today and deliver them from Satan’s darkness. In Jesus name, amen!
