IT’S TIME

When parents are burying their children, it shows you how things and times have changed. There is a time for everything, however most people refuse to take advantage of the time that is given to them to do the right thing. “That is why the Lord says, turn to me now, while there is time! Give me your hearts, come with fasting,weeping,and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief; instead tear your hearts, Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful. He is not easily angered, He is filled with kindness, and is eager not to punish you. Who knows? Perhaps even yet, He will give you a reprieve, sending you a blessing instead of this terrible curse.” That is how the NLT version simplifies it. The KJV  says,Now therefore, says the Lord, turn to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; So rend your heart and not your garments; return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and He relents from doing harm. Who knows if He will turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind Him” (Joel 2:12-14). Do you really want to take the chance of not accepting Christ and not going to heaven? Everyone over eighteen in certain countries have the right to make certain decisions about their life, it’s time to choose your final destination; be it heaven or hell.

Why would anyone who is not certain about the amount of time they have left to live, be so evasive and nonchalant about their future? Times have changed so much, that as I mentioned earlier, life expectancy has drastically declined where parents are now burying their children, instead of the opposite, immoral activities are praised and encouraged, crimes and murders has escalated, and so many ungodly things are taking place. If this is not an indication of the last days, where we are experiencing perilous times then maybe I am blind and everyone is seeing things. 2 Timothy 3:1-7 gives us a vivid description of what is happening now. Don’t you think it’s time? If you haven’t accepted God’s gift of His son, Jesus Christ, then you are going to hell, because He is the only way to heaven. So here is an opportunity to take advantage of the time you have left. Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions.

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

FROM BAD TO GOOD

Most people fail to realize that to get to the good things in life you will have to experience or encounter some bad things. If you never had a bad relationship, marriage, job, even friends, then you will never know what the really good ones are like. Therefore bad situations are experiences that leads or motivates you to seek better. The truth is, if you invest or sow all your time and effort into bad people and things, then you will reap bad. “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man sows, that he will also reap; For he who sows to his flesh, will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life”(Galatians 6 :7-8). So who or what are you giving all your time and effort to? If you give it to God then you will reap good, but if you give it to the devil, you will definitely reap bad.

God tells us in His word that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him(Hebrew 11:6), which simply means if you do as Matthew 6:33 tells us, to seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness then He will add good things to you. You should also know that He only gives good and perfect gifts, according to James 1:17. When you seek God it means you are investing your time into Him, you are building a relationship which means you will reap the good that only He can give the best of, like a good relationship, a good job, a good car and whatever you need. However if you seek the things of the world before you seek Him, then you will reap bad, and you will be heading down the wrong path. Remember, He is a jealous God (Joshua 24:19) and no one likes to be second or last, especially Him.

If you have never encountered anything bad then it means you have settled, or compromised your values for anything or anyone. Some people take a few bumps and bruises, heartaches and heart breaks before they wake up, and stop going from bad to worse. Unfortunately the devil has opened our eyes and appetite to bad that we accept it as good. So Jesus had to come and show us the way, the truth, and how to do  good that leads to everlasting life, because no one was suitable or willing to sacrifice themselves for the good of mankind. We must realize that we don’t have the answers for everything, or to everything, but God does. That is why He advises us in Proverbs 3:5-6 to acknowledge Him in all our ways and He will direct our paths, if we trust Him. Unfortunately, most of us think we know everything only to find out we really don’t know anything.

Lets not despise every bad thing that happens to us in life, because some good always comes out of bad things, that’s why Romans 8:28 tells us that, all things work together for good to them that love God, and to those who are called according to His purpose. Do you love God? Are you one of the called according to His purpose? To seek and save the lost. Even Jesus was not thought of as good when Nathanael had the nerve to ask his brother if anything good can come out of Nazareth (John 1:46). Don’t let anyone doubt your capabilities of who you are and who you can become, or is entitled to, as children of God we know better days are always coming. Can you say or think like that? You can if you get to know Jesus and all the privileges we are entitled to through Him, and He is the only true access to God our Father (John 14:6).

Are you interested in knowing Jesus and having a relationship with God? If so go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Then you too can sing and look forward to better days.

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

WILL LOVE PREVAIL?

Todays generation has taken love to a whole different level, with a totally different meaning. The divorce rate would be less and divorce lawyers would have to find a new profession if true love prevailed. Imagine if people, especially Christians, would apply 1 Corinthians 13 to their lives, lifestyles, and truly obey and live by every word of this standard of love. Then maybe the statistics of single mothers and fathers would be less; instead of baby mothers and fathers, there would be husbands and wives; there would be no sugar daddies and hoochie mammas, because love would have truly prevailed and covered a multitude of sins, because we obeyed God’s standards for love. If love prevailed would there have been so much war and rumors of war? Is it too late to love as God intended us to love?

Will we ever get to the point where we love others as we love ourselves? In Romans 12:9-10 it tells us,”Let love be without hypocrisy, hate that which is evil, cling to that which is good;Be kindly affection one to another with brotherly love, in honor preferring one another.” Will we ever be able to love each other as Jesus loved us, and sacrifice or lay down His life for us, as written in John 15:13. Will we ever obey the added commandment Jesus gave us in John 13:34-35 and love each other as He loved us, so that all the world will know that we are His disciples, because love prevailed. Do I have to wait till I get to heaven, to see this type of love, that Jesus displayed, be manifested. God wants churches to be unified in love, not war, bitterness and contempt for each other, aren’t we serving the same God of the universe?

Jesus could have come down from the cross and saved Himself,He could have aborted the mission but He decided to die. After peeking into the future and seeing what He had to endure, He went to God in prayer, because His soul was exceedingly sorrowful even unto death; Jesus said, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; never the less not as I will, but as thou will.”(Matthew 26:8-39) Wen we look at Mark 14:34-36 and Luke 22:42 we see that they say the same thing in their own way. It was because of love for God and us with obedience to His Heavenly Father that love prevailed, and conquered a multitude of sins, and put us back in right standing with God, after Adam and Eve failed. Do you want to experience God-like love, that Jesus demonstrated, then accept Jesus and allow His blood to cleanse you from all your sins and make you new again.

Jesus displayed God’s Unconditional love, Agape love, Endless love, prevailing love when  He died  for us. This enabled us to have life and have it more abundantly. Do you want to pass up that experience of a life time? Who on this earth do you know would die for you intentionally, so that you could be free? Don’t wait another minute go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Do this so you can start loving like Jesus loves, walking like Jesus walked, be close to God like Jesus was, be righteous like Jesus was. Don’t hesitate it’s time to get close to God, time is running out. God’s love has prevailed so go get it.

All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God, the Immortal, Invisible, and only wise one, who used me as one of His messengers to get His message out to the lost and un-saved, in every language, to every country, to every nation, I pray that He will give all who read this and those who pass it on the spiritual necessities to comprehend what the Spirit of the Lord has to say to His people, in Jesus Mighty Name I pray, Amen.

THE BLAME GAME

It’s so easy to blame the other person when a marriage or relationship is shattered or in turmoil. It’s even worse when people fail to realize that if God is not present, nor acknowledged then the devil is. Playing the blame game is not the solution to the problem, it’s one of the devils tactics to take the focus off of defeating him, and eradicating him out of our lives. One thing  for certain is that the devil hates marriages, because it reminds him of Jesus’ connection to the body of Christ (the  church), so he invented same-sex marriages to taunt and mock Jesus. We need to realize that when God is the center of our lives and we love, fear, and obey Him; then the fruit of the Spirit will be in operation which are: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).

However, when the devil is present in a marriage or relationship, you will find that people are lovers of their own selves more than lovers of God,  covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affections (2 Timothy 3:2-6). The solution to this growing problem is not to blame or point fingers, it’s to identify who or what is the main cause, which is the devil and his henchmen, who blind your eyes, and entice you into sin, therefore if you submit to God and resist the devil, he will have to flee, and if you and your spouse draw near to God He will draw near to you as James 4:7-8 reminds us. It’s so simple, if God put you together then no one can divide you (Mark 10:9). So why would you allow the devil to come into your lives and destroy it, stop playing the blame game and gang up on the true enemy and defeat him.

It’s so sad when couples look to people in the church for help, for solutions, and advice about their relationship and  later that private information about the couple is used in a sermon to trample you under their feet with smirks on their faces; which reminds you that they are not God. Jesus told us in Matthew 7:6 ,”Give not that which is holy unto dogs, neither cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet and turn again and lacerate you.” Then you better learn to go on your knees for yourself and cry unto God, who is a present help in time of trouble and need, because no one can answer for God, He does not need an advisor nor instructor. He is God all by Himself, and if you are walking in righteousness, you need to know that the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much (James 5:16). God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we may ask or think,according to the power that worketh in us (Ephesians 3:20).

A marriage should be founded on Christ the solid rock, in order for it to last, with both of you looking to Jesus the author and finisher of both your faith. Without the triangle of God as the head, then the husband and the wife, with both of you looking and seeking the creator for answers in unity then you will allow the other fellow to come in and steal, kill and destroy your lives, home, and children. Stop fussing, fighting, blaming, and pointing fingers at each other, and join forces on your knees to destroy the enemy. The devil is already defeated, you just have to keep him defeated.

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.
