~ GOD’S LOVE IS ETERNAL!!!~
~ GOD’S LOVE NEVER FAILS!!! ~
~ GOD’S LOVE IS STRONG & TENDER!!! ~
 
I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL
 
THIS IS THE GOSPEL WE PREACH:
 
IT IS BECAUSE OF HIS LOVE ALMIGHTY GOD ALLOWED OUR LORD & SAVIOR CHRIST JESUS TO LEAVE HEAVEN. THEN BECOME ADORNED WITHIN A SINLESS EARTH BODY, BORN OF A WOMAN. HE LIVED A SINLESS LIFE, HEALED, DELIVERED, FED, SAVED AND SET FREE MULTITUDES OF PEOPLE…  JESUS MIRACULOUSLY AND MAGNIFICENTLY OVERCAME SIN, DEATH & THE GRAVE AS WELL AS THE POWERS & PRINCIPALITIES THAT BE.
 
“…FOR IT IS BY HIM WERE ALL THINGS CREATED, THAT ARE IN HEAVEN, AND THAT ARE IN EARTH, VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE WHETHER THEY BE THRONES, OR DOMINIONS, OR PRINCIPALITIES, OR POWERS, ALL THINGS WERE CREATED, BY AND FOR HIM:
 
AND HE IS BEFORE ALL THINGS, AND BY HIM, ALL THINGS CONSIST.
 
AND HE IS THE HEAD OF THE BODY, THE CHURCH: WHO IS THE BEGINNING, THE FIRSTBORN FROM THE DEAD; THAT IN ALL THINGS HE MIGHT HAVE THE PREEMINENCE. 
 
FOR IT PLEASED THE FATHER THAT IN HIM SHOULD ALL THE FULLNESS DWELL…” COLOSSIANS 1
 
JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD, FOR HE IS THE PRECIOUS LAMB OF GOD, WHO SACRIFICED HIS LIFE FOR US AND THE SINS OF THE ENTIRE WORLD.  YET, HE WAS MISTREATED, BEATEN, CRUCIFIED UPON THE CROSS, DIED & WAS BURIED IN A BORROWED TOMB. AND THEN AFTER (3) THREE DAYS HE AROSE WITH ALL POWER!!! ALL BECAUSE OF GOD’S LOVE FOR US!!! 
 
TRUE BELIEVERS CAN SAY, “I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED!”
 
 
“…FOR THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE, FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD, BEING JUSTIFIED FREELY BY HIS GRACE THROUGH THE REDEMPTION THAT IS IN CHRIST JESUS, WHOM GOD SET FORTH AS A PROPITIATION…” ROMANS 3
 
THEREFORE, WE ALL NEED CHRIST JESUS AS OUR LORD & SAVIOR!!! ABBA HEAVENLY HOLY FATHER THANK YOU FOR YOUR MARVELOUS OMNIPRESENCE!!!
 
KNOW THIS; GOD’S LOVE NEVER FAILS!!! THEREFORE, WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD WE CAN OVERCOME evil WITH GOOD!!! 
 
 
TRUE BELIEVERS CAN SAY, “I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED!”
 
 

KNOW THIS; GOD IS ALSO A GOD OF WRATH!!!

Nineveh was the capital of the ancient powerful Assyrian Empire.   They were known for their brutality, disrespectfulness, carnality, cruelty and violence.

Jonah was called by God. He was sent to the city of Nineveh by GOD. Jonah means “Dove!” He was to preach to them. Jonah did not want to go to Nineveh.  So, he instead tried to flee to Joppa aboard a ship. But the Lord sent a great wind that caused a furious tempestuous storm upon the sea.  Jonah knew he was the cause. The mariners on board finally threw Jonah overboard at his request.  God had prepared a “Great Fish” that swallowed up Jonah. He was in the belly of the fish for (3) three days. Jonah fervently prayed in the belly of the Great Fish.  The Great Fish finally spit Jonah out on dry land. He then reluctantly went to the great city of Nineveh after traveling (3) three days.  Jonah preached to the inhabitants as well as to the King of Nineveh telling them to REPENT! He told them frankly if they did not REPENT they would be overthrown after (40) forty days. Well the King as well as the people of Nineveh believed Jonah’s message from GOD.  He then proclaimed a fast and along with the people he too put on sackcloth, cried out to GOD and they repented. (See details in the Book of Jonah)

 

But years later again Nineveh backslide and once again returned to their old ways. It is in the Book of Nahum where it records the final destruction of Nineveh.

“GOD IS JEALOUS, AND THE LORD REVENGETH, AND IS FURIOUS; THE LORD WILL TAKE VENGEANCE ON HIS ADVERSARIES AND HE RESERVETH WRATH ON HIS ENEMIES.

THE LORD IS SLOW TO ANGER, AND GREAT IN POWER, AND WILL NOT acquit the wicked…” NAHUM 1 (See the details in the Book of Nahum)

 
CHRIST JESUS WAS GOD’S LOVE MANIFESTED IN SINLESS FLESH!!!
 
 
“…HE SENT HIS SON TO BE THE PROPITIATION FOR OUR SINS.” I JOHN 4
 
ABBA FATHER GOD, WE ACKNOWLEDGE YOU AS THE KING OF Kings & THE LORD OF Lords. YOU ARE THE ALPHA & THE OMEGA, THE BEGINNING & THE END, THE FIRST AND THE LAST. ABOVE YOU THERE IS NO OTHER. FOR YOU LORD GOD ARE THE GREAT; “I AM!” THEREFORE, WE DAILY RISE TO BLESS, HONOR, THANK & PRAISE YOUR HOLY NAME!
 
MANY CONFUSE GOD’S LOVE WITH; This world’s “Intoxicating Affections!” It is not the same.
KNOW THE DIFFERENCE. FOR THE CORINTHIAN CHURCH WAS OFTEN QUITE CARNAL & CONFUSED ABOUT MANY THINGS. AS WELL AS HOW THEY WORSHIPPED.  IT IS HERE IN CORINTHIANS THAT OUR LORD DEFINES AND MAKES CLEAR THE ATTRIBUTES OF HIS LOVE IN HIS WORD!
 
YOU CANNOT PLEASE BOTH GOD & Man/Woman…
 
HALLLELLLUJAH THANK YOU LORD!!! I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED!!!
 
IT IS WRITTEN:
 
“…AND THOUGH I BESTOW ALL MY GOODS TO FEED THE POOR, AND THOUGH I GIVE MY BODY TO BE BURNED, BUT HAVE NOT LOVE, IT PROFITS NOTHING.
LOVE SUFFERS LONG AND IS KIND; LOVE DOES NOT ENVY; LOVE DOES NOT PARADE ITSELF, IS NOT PUFFED UP: DOES NOT BEHAVE RUDELY, DOES NOT SEEK ITS OWN, IS NOT PROVOKED, THINKS NO evil; DOES NOT REJOICE IN iniquity; BUT REJOICES IN TRUTH; BEARS ALL THING,. HOPES ALL THINGS, ENDURES ALL THINGS. LOVE NEVER FAILS …” I CORINTHIANS 13 ~   REMEMBER THIS IS HOW GOD DEFINES HIS LOVE!
 
GOD’S LOVE IS ETERNAL
TRUE BELIEVERS CAN SAY, “I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED”
 
~ YES LORD!!! WE ARE SAVED BY THE GRACE OF GOD!!! 
WE ARE TO DAILY STRIVE & THRIVE TO LIVE EVERYDAY; “TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!”

JESUS Is The WAY! The TRUTH And The Life!

JESUS Is The WAY! The TRUTH And The Life!

Can I be certain that the Bible is true? How many ways is it to Heaven? Can I get to heaven just by being good? Do I have to believe in Jesus Christ? Do you know where you will spend eternity? What does it mean to say; The Lord is my Shepherd?

These are a few of the multitude of questions that many ask? Many are rather confused? I pray that after you read this you will better understand the answers to the above questions!

What is the point and why all the confusion? The confusion comes and many are bewildered because so few take the time to actually know the Word of God for themselves, nor proceed to develop an ongoing personal relationship with Him. They often take second hand information without considering the source and realizing it just might not be the Word? It is really important to know the Word of God for yourself!

What is also a bit alarming; is that there is so much of the Word that is being pushed aside and replaced by old wise fables and tales by Christians… Many opt to determine what is right for them simply based on how they feel and have been erroneously taught. Much ms-information is passed down and becomes accepted as truth… often reflecting an unfavorable picture of the Lord and His Word! What is popular or the latest trends determine how one lives rather than upon the Word of God…

Did you know that tradition can be anything you decide? There are many traditions that are first-rate and quite beneficial. But whenever the principle it teaches is contrary to the Word of God it should be abandoned. It is always GOOD to be Thankful to GOD! God never intended for Christianity to be reduced to a legalistic list of rules, to a tradition nor just another religion or something practiced on Sunday… Christianity was meant to be an everyday lifestyle. Jesus Christ came to show us the Way!

No wonder so many are lost! Rather than follow His directions, many opt to just do their own thing! Think about this for a minute. If you knew me well and trusted me and I gave you directions how to get somewhere and you are guaranteed to arrive there safely, would you follow them? Or would you say Hmm I’m not so sure I’ll ask someone else or I will find the way myself? You may eventually get there but in the meantime you have chosen the tedious path laden with anxiety and uncertainty rather than… Believe me! Do you really believe the Word?

Jesus Christ is the Son of God! As a matter of fact: “For GOD so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever BELIEVES in HIM shall not perish but have everlasting life. For GOD did not send His Son in the world to condemn the world. but that the world may be SAVED!” JOHN 3. He is door to Heaven and there is no other way to the Father!

Jesus has already prepared the Way! But in order to stay on or get on the right path we must follow His directions! “Do not let your hearts be troubled, TRUST in GOD! TRUST also in ME! In My Father’s house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would not have told you, I am going to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL COME BACK and take you to be with ME that you may also be where I am…” John 14. Prepare: JESUS IS COMING BACK!

Let’s allow our spiritual minds to take the forefront and ask the Lord to open our spiritual ears and camp here a moment! Is your heart troubled? Have you made a bad decision? Has someone lied on you? Is your mind confused? Are you or a love one physically or mentally ill? Have you been given some bad news? Are you uncertain about your future?

Well I have some “GOOD NEWS!” Jesus has already prepared a Way! All His Word is true! It is okay to analyze and assess to a degree what is going on and take a look at what is happening in your life… But in order to see your way through or out of a situation clearly you must learn to TRUST JESUS!

No matter how much we plan; things can and will still happen that are beyond our control. Therefore you cannot put all your TRUST in something you see. Upon accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, God has given us an inner compass to guide us! Regardless as to where you are, what is happening or what has happened your way out is through Him! The first place you must turn is to GOD! If you are a believer you have been given His Holy Spirit as a Comforter! Belief in Him and in HIS Word is supremely paramount for safe travel on the narrow road! “Seek first the Lord and HIS kingdom and HIS righteousness and ALL these things will be given to you as well…” Matthew 6. You must seek Him or begin to seek Him above all else!

If you do not know Him start now! If you have grown slack in your commitment to His will in your life recommit! Sincerely confess that you are a sinner and you are sorry for the sin in your life that separates you from Him. Let Him know now you want to turn your life over to Him. You want to draw closer to Him and invite Jesus into your heart! You want your life to be different and you want to learn more about Jesus Christ and His plan of salvation… You want to learn how to trust Him…

Why is that? If you are trusting in something you can see or figure out then it is not FAITH! “Now FAITH is being SURE of what we HOPE for and certain of what we do not see…” Hebrews 11. What is key here is being sure and certain! It is so important that you develop your very own personal and intimate relationship with the Lord! Know God so well that when anyone tells you something, you are able to discern or you can go to the Word and find out for yourself if it is of HIM!

The Greek word for faith is pistis! Faith is being confident in a reliable source!

There is so much spiritual warfare designed to get you off track on to the broad road where there are so many travelers that it appears it is the right direction. Have you ever noticed when there is a lot of traffic you must drive much more carefully! You must pay closer attention to where you are going. If you don’t you can easily miss your turn, or have an accident…

GOD is who He says He is!

When we confess Jesus Christ as our personal Savior we enter the spiritual realm of belief. Not just any belief but we actually profess we believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. This does not mean we merely join a spiritual social club and are then just indoctrinated to a particular denomination or non – denomination. It goes much deeper than that? Yes it is wise to pursue a place of worship where the Word of God is being taught! You need to fellowship with other Christians who are able to properly spiritually nourish you! It is important to know and understand that you have made a commitment to live God’s way! What are you saying…

The Greek Word for believe is pisteuo. Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved. We are saved by Grace through FAITH not works!

When you become a Christian you embark on a spiritual journey that is a lifelong process of spiritual growth. This is just the beginning… Wherever you are in your life you now must begin to go forward in the Lord! You cannot undo anything that has transpired in your life! There is nothing that God is not aware of! Now you must get to know Him as your Creator and Sustainer of life on a personal level. You must become familiar with His voice! You must learn to “Be STILL and KNOW!” You are now to travel on the narrow road that is less traveled!

You have been given the gift of His Holy Spirit that resides within you!

Faith is an action word! You must step out on FAITH! In order to feel the impact of His Spirit’s presence you must sincerely ask to be filled daily by inviting Him into your day to day life. Throughout the day you can actually become cognizant and reconnect when you feel yourself shifting… You must take the necessary steps to develop an ongoing personal intimate relationship with Him.

Wherever you are God knows! Wherever you have been and whatever you have done God knows that too. GOD LOVES YOU! It is important to know that you have entered into a spiritual war zone. There are powers & principalities that be who desires to tempt you away from GOD an wreak havoc upon your life! The world at large is hostile to believers! Once you become strong in the FAITH you threaten their system of embracing whatever is popular… Thinking outside of the box they have prepared for you is not welcomed… So prepare for opposition! But our weapons are not carnal! Think about Jesus, who was sinless and how they conspired against Him… He was not readily accepted by the very ones He came to help! His motives were always questioned and He was slandered, called everything but a child of God! They even used someone that was supposedly close to Him to betray Him… Jesus as well as His disciples endured harassment, ridicule and undue mistreatment. Yes, we too must go through some things…! So do not be surprised like Peter tells us; “In this greatly REJOICE, though now for a little while you may have to suffer grief in all kinds of trails – These have come so that your FAITH – of greater worth than gold, which perished even though refined by fire – may be proved GENUINE and may result in Praise, Glory, and Honor Jesus Christ when revealed.” I Peter 1.

No need to be afraid, but you must begin to be aware of what is going on. Pray for spiritual discernment! Peter shares with us how important it is to know what lies ahead! He knew you can expect persecution from just about anyone including at times your own family…”If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” John 15. Is it becoming any clearer why you need to know the Word for yourself?

Update 7/21/13: Read this CNN Article “Losing Christ and Finding Jesus”. See why in this 21st Century it is so important to Know The Lord For Yourself, for there is no way to “Lose Christ and Find Jesus”, for in the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD. And the WORD became flesh (Jesus Christ).
