ALL SLAVERY IS NOT BAD!

Today slavery is a very hot topic amongst the BLM (Black Lives Matter). The BLM is protesting slavery and anything or anybody connected with owning slaves. In the United States slavery was abolished in 1862.

“The Emancipation Proclamation, or Proclamation 95, was a presidential proclamation and executive order issued by United States President Abraham Lincoln on September 22, 1862, during the Civil War.” Wikipedia

The first time slavery is mentioned in the Bible the whole nation of Israel were slaves of Egypt. (Leviticus 26:13)There are still all kinds of slaves in the world today. Human trafficking is the worst of the lot!

Even in the true Churches of God today there is slavery!

What does Jesus have to say about this slavery? First we must realize how slavery in the Church came about. Jesus first teaches us that we are baptized into the body of Christ (the Church)!

Romans 6:3-5 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection.

When Jesus died on the cross He conquered death and death does not have power over the body of Christ (the Church). Jesus shed His blood so that all the worlds’ sins are forgiven past present and future. Those who have repented and surrendered to Christ and confessed that they are sinners and receive the free gift of grace from Him are no longer under bondage or shackled in slavery to sin but have eternal life.

 Romans 6: 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,

9-10 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.

18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.

22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.

God created man for a very high calling to be His children forever. Wouldn’t you rather want to receive the free gift of Jesus Christ than to be burned in Hell? Get on your knees now and ask Jesus to come into our life and if you are really sincere He will give you the gift of eternal life!

CONFESS YOUR SINS TODAY AND BE SAVED!

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!

DECISION TEXAS THE LONE STAR TOUR with FRANKLIN GRAHAM

I thank God for His many blessings as He is most generous. I am happy to announce that Samaritans Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association are hosting the “DECISION TEXAS: THE LONE STAR TOUR” as they hold their event in San Antonio, Texas this coming Sunday, October 15, 2017. They are holding events in seven cities in Texas in the month of October. They are pushing hard to reach the unsaved. Please pray that many will turn to Jesus Christ during these events.

The Billy Graham Association is probably the first organization to utilize the internet evangelism to spread the gospel of Christ. They started their internet evangelism in 1994.

My wife and I have been supporters of Samaritans Purse for years and now we have been blessed with a special invitation to join Franklin Graham for a private reception prior to the Lone Star Tour event in San Antonio, Texas. I cannot express, fully, my gratitude for such a wonderful opportunity to meet Franklin Graham and hear him share the gospel message to the people of the San Antonio, Texas area. Again I urge everyone to pray to Jesus Christ for this event to successfully reach the unsaved.

In Jesus name,

Jerry Cartwright

Int’l VICE PRESIDENT OF INOE FOR NORTH AMERICA

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!

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!

OUR CHILDREN ARE BEING ASSAULTED

OUR CHILDREN ARE BEING ASSAULTED

Here is a most disturbing report!

The clean pure moral lifestyle that citizens of this great nation have enjoyed and practiced for over 240 years is under attack. Below is an excerpt from post in Franklin Graham’s Facebook account. The enemy has started a program of indoctrinating our children with their vile agenda. The people who are doing this do not know Jesus Christ and what He teaches. This is a perfect example of what believers of Jesus Christ need to be praying about. The unsaved of the world need Jesus’ salvation. The unsaved are susceptible to the evil influences and works of the Devil and the only recourse we have to stop the Devil is to pray for the gospel of Jesus to reach into the hearts of the unsaved and stop this wicked practice assaulting our society especially our children.

Franklin Graham

August 8, 2017· 

Planned Parenthood’s true colors are showing. They’re in the news this time because their website gives “guidelines” that instruct parents to teach their children, even preschoolers, that “your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.” They want to introduce the concept of transgender identity to a younger and younger audience—pushing the LGBTQ agenda. 

God has already told us in His word what these people have become because they chose the Devil instead of Christ! They are weak and unable to control themselves and are easily swayed by the enemy of mankind. God has allowed people to make their own choices in life and He has set before us the choice of life or death. Choose life and live eternally! God wants to give His people great rewards even to the sharing of His throne with us. That is one awesome promise!!

 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. — Romans 1:26-32

The bible says that just as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be in the end times.

Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. —Genesis 6:5

God stirs up His righteousness in believers to accomplish His agenda by instituting a special day for the purpose of praying for the unsaved. Therefore: International Network of Online Evangelists has announced the first ever “International Day of Prayer For The unsaved—2017” to start on August 20, 2017, just 12 more days from now. This is a worldwide event! Please, take a minimum of just 5 minutes or however long your heart desires for this most important counterattack against Satan the Devil. Will you join us in the most powerful prayer engagement in history made possible by, ”the blessing of the internet” making the world accessible?

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. —Mark 16:15-16

PRAY! PRAY! PRAY! Amen!

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOURSELF?

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!

JESUS’S UNSURPASSED LOVE

Do you know who God is? Do you know what His purpose for creation is? What is the greatest thing about God? It would take the whole bible to thoroughly answer these questions so we will only cover some very important high points.

If you have yet to receive Christ into your life then all these points are of the utmost importance to you and your family!

The first thing we learn about God in Genesis 1:1 He was there from the beginning and that He created the heavens and the earth. But does it say who He is? This is better explained in other passages of the bible. In John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

The apostle John talks about the Word and that Word was Jesus Christ.

In other scripture we learn what God is like and the most important characteristic about Him. Very plainly He is the epitome of love.  1 John 4:8, 16 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

God even emphasizes how important love is.

 1 Corinthians 13:13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Let make sure we understand that Gods love and the love defined by the world are totally different. The love of the world is sensual, emotional, self seeking, lustful, and covetous. God’s love is explained this way. John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. This is exactly what God did when He sent His Son to die in our place on the cross. John 3:16 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.

Jesus loved all men so much He willingly gave His life for us that we might live.

Galatians 1: 3-5        Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

We have now come to the most important part!

If you have never asked Jesus to come into your life take the time, now, find a private place and ask God to help you understand what being saved is all about. He, in all His love, will show you the way. Trust Him! Believe Him! Accept Him! He is ready with all His heart to give you His greatest gift. His GRACE! It is undeserved pardon for all your sins past, present, and future.  You will be a new holy creation for God the Father and your citizenship will immediately be in heaven.

2 Corinthians 6:2 For He says: ” In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

Don’t wait any longer for Jesus is at the door waiting to come in!

2 Thessalonians 3:5 Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ.

Welcome to the family of God!

God bless you!

What do you do when you have no hope left?

2-Samuel_22-33 God is my strenght and power

This was a real legitimate question by a young lady on Yahoo’s Question and Answers!

Here are some of the answers given as suggestions of hope. It is not surprising that the last thing anyone wants to hear about is religion. All want to use the carnal human approach to help the person. Each one uses their own understanding of the world around them and their experiences to try to encourage the person. Some literally shocked me with their comments. Here are some of the things they told the young lady.

1 “you have already received many wonderful answers and some not so good ones too. I agree that, if you are without hope, you may have a psychological or medical imbalance and it is important to rule that out by seeing a professional. When hope is gone, a person needs something to ‘believe’ in. Search your soul for a positive thought and let it flow further – into a belief. It could be as simple as looking at the stars and moon and realizing that many people are looking at the same stars and moon as you are.”

2 “Well, there are two choices. You either end your miserable life, or you take a step in the right direction and reach out to others in need. Doing something nice for someone else, even when you feel you have nothing to give, is always rewarding, and you would be surprised at how much hope it will give you.”

3 “Oh, please… do we have to throw God at the girl and make it sound like that’s the answer? 
As if God is going to come down and throw his arms around her and make everything better… ’cause gee, that’s what he does, right? That’s why everything is so perfect in this world and why everyone that believes in him so much is such a perfect person, right? Here’s a better answer. 
Take a good long look in the mirror at yourself and realize that there is hope. And there’s hope because YOU won’t allow yourself to think any more that there’s not. 
Trust in yourself… and trust in your best friends to be there for you
.” 

4 “Count your blessings – reformat your thoughts and think of good things that have happened to you. Do something stupid (but harmless) that you haven’t done since you were a kid” 

5 “ACCEPTANCE is the only answer to such a predicament. 99.9% of emotional problems (unless you have a recognized mental condition), stem from not wanting/wishing to accept reality.”

If I was hurting as this person seemed to be, the suggestions above would have been like being hit in the stomach with a sledge hammer. They don’t give good answers because they themselves don’t have hope! Since they don’t want God in their lives they only follow the worldly course of; eat, drink, and be merry because when they die they believe it is all over. They don’t believe in life after death and frantically try to do all they can in this life while they can.

But God does say there is hope for those who are willing to let Him into their lives but there is no hope for those who do not.  Job 11:18,20 “Then you would trust, because there is hope; And you would look around and rest securely.  But the eyes of the wicked will fail, And there will be no escape for them; And their hope is to breathe their last.”

Hope takes on a whole new meaning when God explains in Colossians: 1:5 because of the hope laid up for you in heaven,  27 which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

That glory is something very special! God performs a miracle in your life to the effect that God says in 1 Timothy 4:10 For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers.

God wants to emphasize your hope more succinctly as He states again in Hebrews 6:19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul

That great anchor is a promise so amazing and encouraging because Jesus Christ did something that utterly guarantees that we will live eternally with Him and His Father in heaven. Jesus being fully God came to the earth and took on the form of a man to shed His blood for the forgiveness of our sins, died on the cross for us while we were still sinners so that we might live, was buried and in the grave for three days and then was raised to life and ascended to heaven to set on the throne of God with His Father. Jesus sent back to the earth the great Comforter, the Holy Spirit to dwell in believers filled with faith in Christ to give encouragement, peace, and hope. It is a guarantee of our salvation and resurrection to eternal life.

1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

This hope cleanses you from all the pressures, stresses, and problems of this world freeing you from the bondage that the world heaps upon you refreshing your soul.

1 John 3:3 And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

YES! That is why we need to throw God at the girl because He is the answer!

God Bless You!

GOD LOVES ME

I love the way God is expressed to me by praise and worship music. His character is often the focal point of praise songs and is magnified to display His Holiness.  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control—- Galations 5:22-23. 

Holy God I am glad that You are the kind of God You are, a God of love. Amen!
