TRUTH

“You can’t handle the truth” was one of my favorite movie quotes. And that is a fact of life, most people would rather hear a lie than the truth.

How about you? Can you handle the truth?

Well here is some truth, that is trustworthy, and faithful: “If we die with Him, we will also live with Him. If we endure or suffer, we will reign with Him. If we deny Him, He will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful, because He can’t deny Himself”(2 Timothy 2:11-13). Allow the truth to enter your hearts, and minds and set you free (John 8:32). My job is to present myself approved to God, as a workman who is not ashamed to rightly divide the word of truth. And I am telling you that Jesus Christ is the only way, truth, and access to God our Father (John 14:6). I am not writing to debate or argue with you, or engage in Godless chatter, I am telling the truth, and stating a fact. Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands firm, sealed with this inscription: ” THE  LORD KNOWS THOSE WHO ARE HIS”, and “everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from  wickedness” ( 2 Timothy 2:19). Jesus lived on earth, and was full of grace, and truth (John 1:14). Don’t allow anyone to deceive you with vain words, because that will bring the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience(Ephesians 5:6). The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the Godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness. The truth about God is known to them instinctively. God has put this knowledge in their hearts. From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth, sky, moon, sun, stars, and all that God made. They can clearly see His invisible qualities, His Eternal power, and Divine Nature, so there is no excuse what so ever for not knowing God. For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him or thanked Him, but their thinking becomes futile, stupid, and foolish, thus darkening, hardening, and polluting their hearts (Romans 1:18-21).

If for whatever reason you don’t know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. It will be the best thing you ever do, and you will never regret it. I give all glory, praise, honor, and thanks to God for using me to deliver His message, I pray it edify, exhort, and comfort you as it did me, may His grace and peace be yours now and forever, amen.

KNOWLEDGE

“How many will have to suffer? How many will have to die?” Was a question Bob Marley asked in one of his songs.

Hosea says, “my people are destroyed, because of  lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). Knowledge, my friends is power, without it you are truly lost. A man of knowledge increases strength (Proverbs 24:5), true strength and power comes when we grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and savior,Jesus Christ, to who be the glory both now and forever (2 Peter 3:18). Now let me give you some knowledge from the Creator of the universe: God does not wish for anyone to perish, but that all should come to repentance, and the Lord is not slack concerning His promises (2 Peter 3:9); For God so love the world, that He gave His only begotten son (Jesus), that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)

Listen folks, Jesus came, took our sins, died, buried, and rose up three days after, so we could be saved, be triumphant, be victorious, what more can we ask for, He proved Himself. Now in a court of law, on earth, all you need is one eyewitness account, for the police, lawyers, judge, and jury to believe, and convict a person. Jesus had over five hundred witnesses (1 Corinthians 15:6), so why aren’t people believing and accepting this fact? Is it too good to be true? If we receive the witnesses of men, then the witnesses of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He hath testified of His son. He that believeth on the son of God hath the witness in himself; he that believeth not God hath made Him a liar, because he believeth not the record that God gave of His son (1 John 5:9-15).

How and why should we escape? If we neglect such a great salvation which at first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him, God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with diverse miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will (Hebrews 2:3-4). Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospered (1 John 1:2). If for whatever reason you don’t know Jesus Christ, or our Heavenly Father go to the top of this blog, and click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make in your entire life.

All glory, praise, honor, and thanks be to God for using me to share His message, may His grace be with you, mercy, and peace from God the father, and from  the Lord Jesus Christ, the son of the Father, in truth and love, amen.

VICTIM TO VICTOR

victim Stop searching for the living amongst the dead,why is it God brought you through that mess, that divorce, that state of financial destitution, that heartache, pain, and strife, yet you keeping going back to dig it up or find it. It’s dead leave it alone,after three days, you should be resurrected, and rejuvenated, don’t allow the devil to steal your joy, weeping only endure for a night but joy comes in the morning, its only when you stop weeping and mourning, that joy and peace will enter in. Isn’t  it amazing how we are delivered from our problems, stress, headaches, and as soon as something drastic,or dramatic happens we gorget God, Jesus, His word, and His promises, forget that we are delivered, and set free. Imagine all the promises that God made, then Jesus comes, and put some more on top of it, and we forget. Today,we all should be singing, dancing, its celebration time, because our saviour, and redeemer lives. ‘Up from the grave he arouse,with a mighty triumph over His foes, He arose a victor from the dark domain, and he lives forever with His saints to reign.’

‘O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?                                                        The sting of death is sin;and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God,which giveth us the victory through our lord Jesus Christ.'(1 Corinthians 15:55-57).”How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him”(Hebrews 2:3). This is not a myth,gimmick or a bluff, He is the resurrection, and the life; he that believeth in Him,though he were dead yet shall he live(John 11:25). Jesus is the only way, the truth, and the life, you will not get to God, heaven, or live for ever without going through Jesus,without accepting Jesus, without believing in Jesus (John 3:16,John 6:40,John 14:6,John 8:32). Friends I must tell you we are in the last days, it’s not business as usual,it’s your soul we are talking about, get it together.If you don’t know Jesus, and wish to do ,go to the top of this blog, click onto the salvation page,and just follow the instructions,it will be the best decision you ever made. I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to bring this message to you, I pray it blessed you as it did me, and it will allow you to walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time,because the days are evil. So lets hide Gods word in our hearts, and meditate on it day and night. May the peace of Jesus resides in your hearts, now and forever in Jesus Name, amen.

SUFFERING FOR OUR GOOD

There was nothing beautiful or majestic about His appearance, nothing that would stimulate our desire for Him. He was despised and rejected by men, a humanitarian of sorrows, and acquainted with suffering and grief. We turned our backs on Him, and looked the other way when He went by, He was despised and we didn’t care. Yet it was our sins, griefs, and weaknesses He carried; it was our burdens, sorrows, problems that weighed Him down. He knew no sin, but we in ignorance, and stupidity thought it was his own sins, that He was getting punished for, by God.

But He was wounded and crushed for our sins, He was bruised, and beaten for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him; and by His stripes we are healed. Now in the latter days, we are like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way: your own denominations, your own doctrines, your own philosophy, your own religion, your own church, etc. forgetting that there is one God,(the true and living God) and the Lord laid on Him the iniquities, guilt, and sins of us all. He was oppressed, and afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth, He was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and like a sheep before its shearers is silent, He did not open His mouth (Isaiah 53:2-7).

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor, because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone, this is an all-inclusive list: Jesus died for the Jews, Greeks, gentiles, whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Japanese, everyone. And it was only right that God, who made everything, and for whom everything was made, should bring all His children to glory, through the suffering of Jesus Christ, God made Jesus the perfect leader, fit enough to bring everyone into salvation, this includes all nationality, color, and creed, no one is left out (Hebrews 2:9-10). So there is no excuse, Christ suffered for the sins of the just, and unjust, that He might bring everyone to God, yes, He was put to death in the flesh, but, made alive by the spirit (1 Peter 3:18). God sent Jesus to make, and show us the way to Him, and guarantee us,everlasting life (John 3:16-17, John  14:6), now the choice is all yours.

Friends, He could have come down off the cross, and saved Himself, but He decided to die just to save us. If you don’t know God or Jesus, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make, and your life expectancy will change from damnation to infinity. He took our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes we are healed(1 Peter 2:24). 

I give my Heavenly Father, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out. I pray it edify(s) and blesses you as it did me, and that you will allow Him to lead, and guide you down the right path to do His will, in Jesus Name, amen.

AGAPE LOVE

What am I living for, if not for God. If loving God  is wrong, then I don’t want to be right. People throw around this word(love) daily, as if they mean what the word dictates. Some people get married under the umbrella of love, for better or worse, richer or poorer, sickness or health, but as soon as worse, or poorer, or sickness comes they are the first to tell you it’s not going to work, or they didn’t sign up for this, the best is, when they say, I don’t love you anymore, or they fall out of love, or grow out of love, as if it’s a piece of clothes that doesn’t fit, or used furniture. But stop for a second, and think,who loves you unconditionally? and who should the love you are giving away so freely go to?

Let me explain something, that most people don’t get or understand, the origin of love is God, and it starts out with giving. ‘For God so loved the world, He gave, His only begotten son, Jesus the Christ, that whosoever believeth on Him will not perish, but have eternal life'(John 3:16), now that’s the epiphany, and essence of love ladies and gentlemen.

Gods whole character is love, and His love starts with giving of a gift. Can you imagine, if God decides to divorce us, or falls out of love with us. Gods love letter to the world (Corinthians 13), demonstrates to us what love is, not what it ought to be, and if you look at verse thirteen it tells us, ‘and now abides faith, hope, love….but the greatest of the three is love’. Friends if God, is not the focal part of the marriage, then you have problems, divorces, adultery, and the works. ‘He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love'(1 John 4:8). Most people fail to realize this scripture, ‘thou shalt love the lord thy God, with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all your mind…then thy neighbor as thyself'(Matthew 22:37-40) this places us in the third spot, or position.

Listen folks, grace be with all them that love the Lord(Ephesians 6:24),we love Him, because He first love us( 1 John 4:19), God has loved us with an everlasting love(Jeremiah 31:3), greater love hath no man, than Jesus who laid down His life for us(John 15:13), love covereth all sins(Proverbs 10:12,1 Peter 4:8)

If you don’t know God, His gift of His only begotten son Jesus the Christ, then go to the top of this blog, click onto the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do, in your entire life.

I give God, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to release His message, to the saved, and unsaved, I pray they will be obedient to His will, and ways in Jesus Name, amen.

KNOWING GODS WILL

To know Gods will, you must first know Him; to know Him, you must know His word, and follow the word, which is His only begotten son Jesus Christ, who came to introduce us to the true, and living God (John 1:1-14). ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son’ (John 3:16-17), so now we know, that it’s not Gods will for anyone to perish, but for all of us to have eternal life.

To truly know Gods will, there are certain criteria, we must follow: we must accept the gift of His son Jesus Christ(John 14:6), we need to confess our sins, and ask for forgiveness(repentance)(1 John 1:9,Proverbs 28:13), we must seek Him, and His righteousness first (Matthew 6:33).

To be righteous, you must be in right standing with God (Romans 8:10,2 Corinthians 5:21). To be in right standing with God, you must deny yourself, obey His commands and will. You see folks to know God’s will you must know Him, and the power of His might (Psalm 46:8-10). In all your ways, you must acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path(Proverbs 3:6), we know His will when we study His word, ‘study to show yourself approved unto God’ (2 timothy 2:15), we know His will through prayers, ‘confess our faults, and pray for each other, that we may be healed, the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous person availeth much'(James 5:16). ‘For I know the plans I have for you’, says the Lord,’plans to prosper you, and not to hurt you, plans to give you hope, and a future.Then you will call upon me,and go pray to me, and I will listen to you, you will seek me, and find me, when you search for me with all your heart, I will be found by you’, says the Lord,’and will bring you back from captivity’..(Jeremiah 29:11-14).

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open, unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil (1 Peter 3:12). Friends you must trust in the Lord with all your hearts ,and never, ever rely on your own understanding, or your friends (Proverbs 3:5-6). This is the only way you will prove, what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2). Friends if you seek Him, pray, fast, repent daily, stay in righteousness, meditate on His word, cast down every knowledge, and thought that is not of God, or in His word (the Holy Bible), you will know Gods will, and His plans for you.

If for whatever reason, you don’t know God, His gift of His only begotten son Jesus the Christ, then go to the top of this blog, click onto the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do, in your entire life. I give God, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to release His message, to the saved, and unsaved, I pray they will be obedient to His will, and ways in Jesus Name, amen.
