Jesus is Lord-The Christ

christ1111

Recently I seen a post online where this man who had been married twice with six children from Russia was claiming to be Jesus. He is claiming to have a lot of followers.  Be wise.  Don’t get caught up in this.  Let me tell you that there is only one Jesus and he will definitely not be living on this earth in the last days until he has called his people home.  The Bible says: Then there will be a new Heaven and a new Earth, for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  (Revelation 21:1). So don’t be deceived into thinking Jesus is living on this earth.

Matthew 24:23-Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

Jesus is the Lord and he is the only way to Heaven.  When he lived on this earth he talked with his disciples and asked them, Who do men say that I am?  Matthew 16:13-19- When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

2 Peter 3:8-13 says: But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Continue in Love

love8

There are some today that seem happy with promoting hate, racism, and evil.  If you love God, then he commands you to love one another.   We should not look on the color of someones skin, or his race or how much money or status he has in this life.  We should love each other without prejudice.  Don’t follow the worlds example by hating those who are trying to live right.  Did you know people hate people just for being Christians?  The Bible says:  Without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away ( 2 Timothy 3:3).  Matthew 24:12 says: And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 1 John 4:20 says: If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?


Jesus said: A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another (John 13:34).  Let us learn to love others and treat others the way we would like to be treated.  1 John 4:7,8 says: Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

Heavenly Father
Oh how much you mean to us,
No words can ever express,
We are thankful and want to honor you,
For our soul is at peace and rest.
Father you deserve all the honor and praise,
You are the creator, master and Lord,
There is no other like you.
For no payment can ever afford.
You bestow to us so much each hour.
Calming our fears and our hearts you mend,
From way up above the clouds and blue,
Your forgiveness is no end.
Your overwhelming love is true,
Your presence everywhere we see,
From sky to tree and flowers that bloom,
For Always to Eternity You’ll be.

With Jesus- We have Everlasting Life

water

Just thinking of the Lord’s return makes me think of the song:Glad Reunion Day

There will be a happy meeting in heaven I know,
When we see the many loved ones we’ve known here below;
Gather on the blessed hilltops with hearts all aglow,
That will be a glad reunion day.

Glad (That will be a happy day) day, Yes, a wonderful day,
Glad (That will be a happy day) day, Yes, a glorious day,
There with all the holy angels and loved ones to stay,
That will be a glad reunion day.

There within the holy city we’ll sing and rejoice,
Praising Christ the blessed Savior with heart and with voice;
Tell Him how we came to love Him and make Him our choice,
That will be a glad reunion day.

When we live a million years in that wonderful place,
Basking in the love of Jesus, beholding His face,
It will seem but just a moment of praising His grace,
That will be a glad reunion day.

Then I read about a woman at the well that Jesus met on the way.  He told her about a  well springing up into everlasting life.  Read the story below.

John 4:13-15,19-26- Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
John 3:16- For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

If you haven’t met Jesus, it is time to ask him into your heart and receive him as your Lord and Savior.  First, turn from your sins, repent and ask Jesus to Save you.

A Time For Every Purpose

fallbuletin

In life, there is a time for everything.  In Ecclesiastes 3:1-13- We read: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

This tells me that God has a pupose for our lives.  In our lives, we want everything at once.  We are used to getting everything right when we want it.  We go through the drive thru and get our food usually within a few minutes.  But to me, God is more patient and wants us to be as well.  He is long suffering to us, not willing that any should perish.  He is waiting on the perfect time to come back.  He is coming soon!  One day he will come back in the clouds and gather his people to live with him forever.  I know it can’t be fast enough for me, but waiting patiently for his return.

Bring Every Thought Captive to Christ

thoughts2
Did you know that everything you do, everything you see, everything you hear has been recorded in your mind. Today we hear so much bad news! People are doing evil things around the world. Pay close attention, things are programmed into our minds that we hear or see. With that thought, the Bible says to: bring every thought to the obedience of Christ. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).

When we allow ourselves to see things that are not good but evil, we allow corruption to enter our minds and thoughts. We may ask, “Why am I thinking such evil thoughts?” The answer is clear! Satan wants to corrupt our minds from godliness of Christ into the ungodliness of this world. 2 Corinthians 11:3 says: But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Why did God destroy the earth by flood? Genesis 6:5 says: And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Colossians 3:1-8 says: If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

God knows our hearts and our thoughts. Hebrews 4:12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Philippians 2:5-Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Romans 2:11-16-11 For there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

Be About the Father’s Business

temple

Are We About the Father’s Business?

One day when Jesus was 12 years old, Mary and Joseph couldn’t find him among the company traveling with them. When they found him in the temple. Jesus said, “How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business? So we should ask ourselves, Are we about the Father’s business?

So what is the Lord’s business today?  It is the same as it was when he was on the earth.  His business was to win souls.  He wanted to preach the gospel of the Kingdom of God. Matthew 24:14 says: 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.  So we must tell others about Jesus and how to receive eternal life in the kingdom of God.

Acts 1:8 says: -But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Acts 22:15 says: For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard.
Luke 14:23 says: And the Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
1 Corinthians 3:11-15 says, “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”
James 5:20 says, “Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.”

Worship God, The Lord Reigneth

Worship God

As I began to study God’s Holy Word this morning, I see how King David began to prepare for the building of the temple of God.  So he began to prepare by bringing in gold, silver, brass, iron, onyx stones, glistering stones, precious stones, marble stones, wood for the building of God’s house.  Then David blessed the Lord before the congregation, Blessed be thou, Lord God of Israel our father, for ever and ever. Thine, O Lord is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name. But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee. For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding. O Lord our God, all this store that we have prepared to build thee an house for thine holy name cometh of thine hand, and is all thine own. I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered all these things: and now have I seen with joy thy people, which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee. O Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers, keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of thy people, and prepare their heart unto thee: And give unto Solomon my son a perfect heart, to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to do all these things, and to build the palace, for the which I have made provision (1 Chronicles 29:10-19).

In God’s word we find several scriptures that tell us that the Lord reigneth.  Psalm 93:1, 2 tells us: The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty: the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.  Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.  Psalm 96:2-4 says:  Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people. For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. Psalm 96:9-13 says: O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth. Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.  Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.  Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice.  Before the Lord: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.  Psalm 99:1-5 says: The Lord reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved. The Lord is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people. Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.  The king’s strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.  Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.

The Lord our God is worthy to be praised and worshipped, Glory be to his name!  Let us lift our hands to worship our God, for the Lord Reigneth upon high.  Let us see what his Holy Word says about our maker.  Psalm 93:1-2 says: The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved. Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.  Psalm 95:1-7 says: O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. 

Today is the day of Salvation.  Today is the day to worship the Lord your God.  If you don’t know the Lord your God, today is the day to pray and ask his forgiveness.  Learn more about Salvation here: https://godlywitnesses.wordpress.com/are-you-going-to-heaven/

After This the Judgment

 

jud111judment2

In the beginning, God walked in the garden with Adam and Eve in the cool of the day.  Then one day Adam and Eve took of the fruit of the tree that God told them not to eat, so then sin entered the world. God told Adam and Eve that because of their sin, they would one day die. “For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return” (Genesis 3:19).
What is sin? Sin is the act of violating God’s will. It can also be viewed as anything that violates the ideal relationship between an individual and God. The Bible tells us in James 4:17, “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” Sin separates us from the love of the Father.
Why must a person die? Romans 5:12 says, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” Hebrews 9:27-And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Revelation 20:12-And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
How can a sinful man become clean before God? For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.” Jesus free gift of salvation justifies many from sin, if they call upon him. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Revelation 1:5 says, “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.”

Sin Has A Cost

sin1

When we are young, we live our life as if there is no tomorrow. We live carefree lives and don’t worry about following God’s laws as much. You think you have all the time in the world to do as you please. As I have gotten older I have began to see that Sin cost something. Things you do when you are young, come back to bite you.  Sin has a cost.

Some sins affect you when you are younger. You may start to lose things in your life that you consider valuable. You might lose your wife because of committing adultery. You may get drunk with alcohol and lose your job that you worked hard to get. You may lose your truck because you committed a sin that cost a lot of money to do such as gambling and drugs. You may begin to waste your money on riotous living and lose your most prize possessions.You may have a car wreck and lose part of your family or your own life. See sin cost us something. Maybe not right when we are living in sin, but it will soon enough. Death comes in all ages. Revelation 20:12 says: And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 

Now if you know Jesus as your savior. God no longer sees that sin, he sees the blood applied. 1 John 1:7 says: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.    Jesus death on the cross became your atonement for your sins. Romans 6:23 says: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Jesus will cast your sins away.   Psalm 103:12 says: As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

Matthew 25:31-46 says:-When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

The Holy Spirit, Our Comforter

dove

When Jesus was talking to his disciples, he told them that: It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you (John 16:7).  Those that trust in the Lord Jesus will receive the Holy Spirit.  Acts 1:8- But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

John 14:16,17,26-27- And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 15:26- But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16:7-13-Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Ephesians 1:13,14-In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Ephesians 4:30-And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
