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!

IS YOUR COMPUNCTION MOTIVATED BY GOD OR THE DEVIL?

Are you into movies, books, and video games about zombies, ghosts, etc.? They can change your compunction to adverse reaction!

Evil unclean spirits are real! Many people do not believe that they exist today, but they do; as the bible says in 1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Don’t make the mistake thinking that believers are immune to the wiles of Satan! 2 Peter 1:10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure. Don’t be lethargic to Christ! Pray that you will be counted worthy to escape those things that are coming. Seek Christ’s guidance in everything you do. Follow Him!

1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.

We are only human and susceptible to human weakness. The evil powers we are confronted with are stronger than we are so put on the whole armor of God.

Ephesians 6:11, 13 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Ephesians 6:12 for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Revelation 16:13-14 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world.

People wonder at the many evil things that are happening in our nation such as the number of killings in our public schools. That is tragic because it involves our children and they depend on us to care for them. The immediate reaction is to call for a ban on guns instead of addressing the reasons why it happens in the first place. Satan the Devil knows it is a major blow to humanity to attack our children and how we will react. It is a very bad thing but is by no means the most tragic!

The charts below show what causes the real carnage and guns aren’t even in the equation! Our society is gorging itself on never ending desires for luxury; suffering the consequences of poor health. Because the dollar is the biggest idol in the US, our water gets polluted, our soil is ruined chemically, the air is gravely polluted and these conditions cause many of the deaths listed in these charts. Guess what! Chemicals in our food are not going away, automobiles are not going away, alcoholic beverages are not going away, and abortions are not going to stop. Not to mention that nothing is hardly ever said about human trafficking in this country and laws that are passed to protect people who do such things.

Listen to God’s word!

Ecclesiastes 9:18 Wisdom is better than weapons of war; But one sinner destroys much good.

John 10:10 The thief (Devil) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.

Ask Jesus, seek Him, knock on His door and He will open to you!

Jesus is your deliverer! Trust Him now! Confess to Him you are willing!

God bless you and may you respond to Him who sustains all things by the word of His power to all who believe. BELIEVE! In Jesus name, amen!

The Birth of Christ Transcends Human Wisdom

 

 

 

The Birth of Christ Transcends Human Wisdom
by Billy Graham
The great mystery of the incarnation is the crux and the core of the Christian message. It is the mystery over which the rationalists stumble, by which the humanists are offended, and by which the world is bewildered.

The natural mind is not equipped to grasp this truth that transcends human wisdom. Paul—after reasoning with the Greeks, who majored in knowledge, and with the Romans, who majored in justice—said, “Without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up in glory” (1 Timothy 3:16).

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!

DECISION TEXAS TOUR 2017 THOUGHTS AND NOTES

Attending the Decision Texas, Lone Star Tour reception was a real blessing as I was inspired, encouraged, shocked, and saddened by the things Franklin Graham had to say. He showed us videos of the horrendous flood in Houston caused by Hurricane Harvey. He showed the many people working to help the people who lost everything in that storm. They prayed for, cleaned, fed, and comforted those suffering from such great loss. Franklin Graham said that Samaritans Purse would be there for about three years helping people.

Franklin Graham showed videos of their relief work in Puerto Rico, Dominica, and Barbuda and said most of the home were leveled especially in Barbuda where all the homes were destroyed. The devastation is unbelievable.

He said that they had a request from the United Nations headquarters to set up a field hospital eleven miles from Mosel in Iraq. Isis has killed and maimed so many people in Mosel there was a great need for a hospital as there were none available for these poor injured people. Refugees were fleeing Mosel heading into the desert to get away from the bloodshed and the Isis sharp shooters were targeting the children of the refuges killing and maiming them. LITTLE CHILDREN! It took thirty days to set up the hospital and staff it. There were sixty doctors and nurses on duty 24/7 and operated on more than four thousand people that fled Mosel trying to get away from Isis. The hospital compound was in shelling distance from Mosel so they had to erect a fifteen foot concrete blast wall around the ten acre hospital compound with solid steel gates and was guarded by the Kurds. Franklin Graham said that there were children screaming and crying, some had lost arms, legs, eyes, shot in the head and the doctors were relentless in helping these children. He asked all of us to pray hard for these people.

The Florida Keys was one of the areas hard hit by the hurricanes of recent date. This area is heavily homosexually dominated. There were people who were homosexual who suffered damage and lost their homes. The Samaritans Purse disaster relief chaplains prayed with and for these people and some surrendered to Christ. Praise the Lord!

Samaritans Purse and the BGEA are constantly helping people all over the world and have invitations from governments such as North Vietnam to go preach to them. They have a wounded warrior camp in Alaska and have helped hundreds of veterans and their husbands or wives to reconcile their marriages and show them how they can still live productive lives. Hundreds have received Christ through that program.

Pray for Samaritans Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association! I think it is amazing that none of what they do ever is reported in the news. God just continues to use them and bless them daily! They set a great example for all Christians showing that if we work together more can be done in serving our Lord Jesus Christ.

Continue to pray for our nation that it will turn back to God!

Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD!

GODS GARDEN OF EDEN TODAY

The bible says that God created a garden in Eden and put Adam in it. He then created all the trees. In the middle of the trees is where God put the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 2:8-9 The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

God also gave Adam the job of taking care of the garden. The bible does not say how long Adam was alone in the garden but it must have been lengthy because of all the things Adam had to do. All was done before Eve was given unto him. Adam was still alone when God gave him the command that he could eat of all the trees in the garden with the exception of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God told Adam he would die if he ate of it. So Adam was aware of all the trees in the garden including the tree of life and the tree of death. Why he ignored the tree of life is a very good question! He was aware of it long before Eve was created.

The very essence of how Adam perceived the tree of life is very much like how mankind perceives eternal life today! They know it is there and that it gives life, but like Adam they are not interested. Mankind indulges in the sins and evil ways of the world (tree of the knowledge of good and evil) because they choose to do so; they are guilty of disobeying God and come under the death penalty. Those who choose life and confess that they are sinners, submitting to Jesus Christ and receiving Him into their lives are given the gift of eternal life. Their sins are forgiven, past, present, and future through the shed blood of Jesus on the cross. John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. The tree of life represents Jesus Christ!  

Genesis 2:15-17 Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Adam and Eve saw the trees in the garden every day, and I still ask myself, “Why did they not want to eat of the tree of life”? The serpent really fooled them when he said they would not die but would know all about good and evil just like God does. They didn’t know that their disobedient act would condemn all mankind to the death penalty. (Remember that people who are deceived don’t know they are deceived!) Adam and Eve were driven out of the garden so they could not eat of the tree of life and live forever. Genesis 2:22-23 Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever” — therefore the LORD God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.

Now God sent His only Son down to the earth to take on the flesh of mankind (though He was still fully God) to suffer on the cross as the supreme blood sacrifice; and, by His grace, do away with the sins of the world and to die in our place so that He could freely give us His gift of eternal life. That is how great God’s love is for us! 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.

Now is the time of salvation! Don’t keep following the sinful, evil ways of the world! Follow the “way, the truth, and the life” through Jesus Christ!

Dear heavenly Father I come praying for the many still living in sin in this world and ask that you would draw them to Christ as the truth of salvation is shared with them through the multitude of ways you have made available in this technical age by television, radio, Media, satellite, and the internet in the Christian churches today. There are still billions of people in this world who need to be saved and only You can make it possible. Open the doors of salvation to the unsaved of the world! Father You deserve all the glory! In Jesus name I pray, amen!
