MONEY TALK OR IN GOD WE TRUST

The United States currency says “In God we trust”, yet most people trust in the money instead of trusting in God. They are so caught up with, and consumed with the mighty dollar, than with the Almighty God, who opens their eyes to see the money, and provides the resources to make the money, like the trees, paper, people and ink to name a few. Unfortunately, this is a world-wide problem. Many people like to say money is power, failing to realize that it does not have power because it can’t talk to you, save you from hell, or buy your way into heaven. In Matthew 19:24  Jesus reminds us that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Why? Because they are so consumed with getting and counting money that they forget about God, who made it possible for them to receive money.

There is nothing wrong with being rich, just as long as you don’t love it more than God or allow it to replace God. The love of money is the root of all evil. 1 Timothy 6:10 says it best, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” Then in verse seventeen it tells us to tell those who are rich in this world, not to be proud, and not to trust in their money, which will soon be gone; But their trust should be in the living God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment..and to do good. We must not allow money to  become our  master, because Matthew 6:13 reminds us that, “No man can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to one and despise the other, you cannot serve God and money (Mammon).”

For what profit is it to a man, if he gains the whole world and lose his soul (Luke 9:25) As Peter said in Acts 8:20, “Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money.” I wonder how many people in the world think that they can buy their way into heaven. Sorry to disappoint those of you who believe you can because you cannot purchase your way into heaven. Money doesn’t talk as some people might think, because it doesn’t speak God’s language or any other for that matter. The only way to God is through Jesus Christ His only begotten Son (John 14:6). So if you are interested go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, follow the instructions, and pray the salvation prayer. We can only trust in God and money does not talk it burns a hole in your pocket and leads you to  burn in hell. Choose Christ today. Money can neither walk or talk, IF IT COULD IT WILL TELL YOU  THAT YOU CAN’T BUY  GOD.

Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. To the only wise God, our Savior, be glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me His humble servant to relay this message to His children. To Him be dominion and power, both now and forever, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.

GOD LOVES THE RIGHTEOUS

Christians are righteous people,and righteous people are christians; To be righteous is to be in right standing with God;Therefore,Christians obey God’s word ,but acting christians compromise and disobey Gods’ word.Unfortunately  many people in the world can’t differentiate between the two.But allow me to shed some light on certain facts: There is a big difference between a righteous person and an unrighteous person,the righteous person lives for God,obey His commands,pray ,go to church and read their Bible daily,and above all accept Gods personal gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ,who is the only one that allows us to be in right standing with God,and God loves the righteous.

To maintain righteousness, one must present their bodies as a living sacrifice ,Holy and acceptable unto God which is our reasonable service;and be not conformed to this world,but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,that ye may prove what is that good,and acceptable,and perfect will of God (Romans 12:1-2).”What ? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you,which ye have of God,and ye are not your own ? For ye are bought with a price , therefore glorify God in your body,and in your spirit,which are God’s” ( 1 Corinthians 6: 19-20).God loves the righteous Psalms 11 :7 tells us,”For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness;His countenance doth behold the upright” Most people can’t figure out why righteous folks are prosperous,and joyful even when things don’t look good,it’s because we know the God we serve,we trust the God we serve,and we believe in the God we serve,and He reminds us of that fact in Psalms 34:15,17,19.

The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous,and His ears are open unto their cry. The righteous cry,and the Lord heareth,and delivered them out of all their troubles.Many are the afflictions of the righteous;but the Lord delivered him out of them all.  Righteous folks are blessed people in Matthew 5:6,10 it tells us, “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness,for they shall be filled.Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake:For theirs is the kingdom of Heaven”.If you are still not satisfied King David says,”I have been young,and now old;yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken,nor his seed begging bread”Psalms 37:25. Then  if we move down to James 5: 16 we see that ,” ..The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availed much”.There are many scriptures that prove that God loves the righteous,and His wish is for all to be righteous,that’s why He sent His only begotten son (JESUS CHRIST) .

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…( John 3:16-17). For  He hath made Him to be sin for us,who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21).For God to answer or hear you when you pray,you must follow what 1 John 1 : 9 says,”If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” God promises in Hebrew 8 :12 that,He will be merciful to their unrighteousness,and their sins ,and iniquities He will remember no more;it is then you will feel His eyes over you ,because of righteousness and His ears will be open to your prayers( 1 Peter 3 :12).Why anyone would not desire the love of God by being righteous does not make any sence,because you will be heading to hell.

God does not dwell in unrighteousness you can’t go to the club, bar, pub, and any other ungodly place the night before and go to church and pretend like you are righteous, because you can’t serve two masters (Matthew 6:24), then by doing that you give the righteous and authentic Christian a bad reputation. One thing you need to know is that if Jesus appears suddenly and you are caught in an ungodly, unholy or un-righteous position ,then you will be left behind. It’s time to be right and if you are not take this opportunity and go to the top of this blog to the Steps to Leading Someone to Christ/Salvation Prayer page and pray the prayer or pray from your own heart. May God guide you in the rest of the steps you have to take with Him in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. To the only wise God, Our Savior, be glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me His humble servant to relay this message to His children. To Him be dominion and power, both now and forever, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.

HEAVENLY VALENTINE

Don’t have an earthly valentine? So what. I can assure you that you have a  Heavenly one, and His gifts are priceless, and He loves you everyday. Valentines day drives a lot of people crazy, some feel loved, some un-loved; some get gifts, flowers, and other things while some don’t; then sadness kicks in, then depression, then loneliness. But realistically if that’s the only day you want to show me how much you love me then keep it, because it’s not real and you are forced to love me because of the holiday. However, for those who get and don’t get gifts, we have gotten our love gift from God our Heavenly Father years ago, through His only begotten son Jesus Christ of Nazareth. He loves us so much He gave His life on the cross for us.

So if you feel un-loved or un-wanted today, think of the only One who ever loved you unconditionally; that He gave up everything, and He didn’t set aside a special day to do it, because He loves you every day. He proves His love by waking you up, so you have an opportunity just to read this and feel special. His gifts are limitless and they come daily, just stop and think who else can give you grace and mercy, favor and blessings, life everlasting, healing and a whole lot more. So allow Jesus  Christ to be your valentine for life, and you will never be without a valentine, never be lonely, and never have to go to hell; try Him today. Is valentines day the only time you show or get love? Then try Jesus, because He loves daily. Visit the Leading Someone to Christ/Salvation Prayer page to read and pray the salvation prayer or lead someone else in praying it.

The best gift you could give someone for valentine’s day is the opportunity to know Jesus Christ, and accept Him as their Lord and Savior. God gave Him to us years ago as we see in John 3:16-17, which states,”For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

QUALITY TIME

When we are dating someone who has the potential to be our spouse, we spend quality time with them, know their moods, likes, dislikes, and everything else we need to know about them. However, most of the time we get mixed signals or are blinded by our lust and desires, but if we spend the same amount of time to get to know God the same way, then  He will be able to see what we don’t see because He looks at the heart. What’s disturbing to me is that we can spend all this time getting to know a person that might leave us, forsake us, or break our heart, but the one who we should spend time with and get to know we don’t. The one who never goes back on His promises, or His word we fail to spend quality time with. That one is God, He is the one we should spend time with and get to know before we get to know anyone else.

Some people say time waits on no one, and that is a fact. Most people waste time doing things they should not be doing, while others spend time studying for an exam, or practicing to sing or dance, even to be successful in a sport or something. Yet the one who invented it all we spend less time with. Now is the time for us to walk circumspectly not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-16). What are you doing with your time? Times have changed for the worse, we have advanced in technology, but decreased in Godliness. In Ecclesiastes 3, we learn that there is a time for everything, so what are you doing with the time you have while you are alive? Have you made time to meet your Maker now instead of later when it will be too late?

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; For the time is at hand (Revelation 1:3). Yes the time is at hand where the Bible tells us in 2 Timothy 3:1-13,  

“This I know, also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God, having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it; from such turn away. For of this sort are they who creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with various lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth, men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further; for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was. But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, long-suffering, love, patience, persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra, what persecutions I endured; but out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yea, and all that live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall become worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

It’s time to let God in your life. It’s time to give Him some quality time. If you are interested go to the top of this blog and visit the salvation page that is titled Steps to Leading Someone to Christ; Salvation Prayer.

However, don’t stop at just receiving Salvation. Find a Bible believing church, with people who are followers of Jesus Christ so you can develop Godly character and principles. Read your Bible daily,and allow the Holy Spirit to lead and direct you for the rest of your life.  May God give you the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to receive His message and apply it to your life, in Jesus’ name. Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to Him who is Immortal and Invisible, the only wise God, our Savior, be glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to release this message. In Jesus name, Amen
