Perilous times

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For me shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, 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 thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers 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.”  2 Timothy 3:1-9

Blessings,

Our God is all-loving

What a tremendous truth  – our loving God values us so much that He sent His son Jesus Christ to take the penalty of our sin.  Consider, from the moment we are born, our inherent sinful nature condemns us to death. Sin may simply be defined as any action or thought that goes against the laws and commandments of God. Because Adam and Eve sinned against God in the Garden of Eden, they have passed along the curse of death and sin through their descendants. Because of our natural carnal nature we are condemned to death from birth. However by accepting the love of God for what it is, a tremendous and remarkable gift, we may be  reconciled to God, through our Saviour Jesus Christ. You must clearly understand, that while God loves the sinner, He hates the sin. In order for us to be accepted by Him, we first must address the sin problem, through the acceptance of Jesus as our saviour and repenting of our sins.

It is a truth of scripture that while God loves us completely, He will not force us to love Him, because that would be a kind of rape. No, He loves us so much that He has granted us free choice about seeking  after Him freely. He loves you but hates your sin. He loves me but hates my sin. After choosing to accept His free offer of salvation, the penalty of my sins was deemed paid in full due to the sacrifice of Jesus at Calvary. Am I now free to sin? No!! Upon true conversion and receipt of the Holy Spirt, our carnal nature is replaced little by little over time, with a new spiritual nature. Looking back at my old life, I hate what I was then, and loathe the things once deemed good. There was repentance, and a change in direction away from death and towards life.

You have the same option available to you, offered freely with no strings attached. Will you leave the darkness behind and enter into the light? Will you abandon the lies of this world and freely accept the truth? This world has been declared terminal and destined for destruction and renewal. The plan of God cannot and shall not be altered, the course has been set and the stage readied. The time for each of us is running out and there is no time to waste. I pray for each of you, that you will make the right decision while there is still time.

In the blessed service of Jesus Christ,

I am God, and there is none else

Isaiah 46:9-13
“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it. Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness: I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.”


Destiny of the saved

” And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3

“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel 12:3

“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:38

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4

“And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring glory and honour into it.” Revelation 21:23-24


Fate of the lost

“But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” 2 Peter 3:7

“For behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yes, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.” Malachi 4:1

“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolators, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” Revelation 21:8

“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:15

Dear friends,

The time has come for you to make a very important decision; will you spend eternity in the kingdom of heaven with the Father and Jesus Christ, or will you choose to be destroyed in the lake of fire? The choice is yours, but please decide quickly for there is little time remaining. God bless!

Many shall call Me Lord, Lord!

*Emphasis added

Luke 6:46 – Jesus intends for us to obey His words.
“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”

Matthew 20:16 – Not everyone will qualify for the kingdom
“So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.”

Matthew 7:13-14 – Enter ye into the straight gate
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be that go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”

Matthew 18:3 – Be ye spiritually converted
“And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 16:24-25 – Seek after the LORD with all your heart
“The said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”

Matthew 10:37-39 – Love the LORD first and foremost
“He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”

Matthew 7:21-23 – A description of the church today (sorry)
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

Can the people of this world call Jesus Christ their LORD? No. Therefore, Jesus could only have been referring to the those Christians who are following both Himself and the world, but not belonging to either. It is impossible for man to serve both God and mankind (Matthew 6:24). God has permitted us free choice; we can either follow Him and live, or reject His laws and commandments and die. Do you seek after riches and wealth? Then you are placing your trust in them, as opposed to the true riches of God through Jesus Christ. Are you actively thanking God for His kindness and blessings? Do you value what the world says is important, more than the Word of God? Are you praying and reading your Bible on a daily basis? Think about it folks, for your salvation is at stake. Whether or not you will receive eternal life in the kingdom of heaven is hanging in the balance. May I suggest that you turn off the television, shut down the computer, and pray. KMay the LORD bless you always, and God bless!


Matthew 7:24-26 – Obedience to His words (commandments) are not optional

“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand.”

Mark 12:30 – Love God first, foremost, and above all
“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all your heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.”

John 14:15 – Commandment keeping required
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

John 14:21 – Those who love Him will keep His commandments
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John 14:23 – We cannot receive the Holy Spirit without commandment keeping
“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”

1 Corinthians 7:19 – Commandment keeping is important and shows our love for Him
“Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.”

1 John 2:3-4 – Definition of a liar
“And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”

Revelation 14:12 – Faith and commandment keeping are one and the same
“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”

Mark 13:21-22 – False Christs shall arise and deceive the elect (Be forewarned!)
“And then if any man shall say to youm Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: For false Christs and false prophets shall rise and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.”

Revelation 22:14-15 – Right to the Tree of Life through commandment keeping
“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”

All persons who intentionally break His commandments, will not be in the kingdom of heaven. Please consider carefully, because as I said earlier, the issue of salvation is at stake.

“Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight. Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou mne in thy way. Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear. Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good. Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.” Psalm 119:33-40

Amen.

Blessed be the person who trusts and obeys

Blessed be the LORD, who is worthy to be exalted above all. Great and wide is thy mercy, glorious is thy name: infinite and wise is your knowledge and understanding of all things. Longsuffering is thy patience, showing mercy to sinners and patience to all. Glorious is thy name which is worthy of all our praises. Blessed is the person who trusts your word and obeys your voice. Blessed is the man who fears thy name and practices thy commandments. Blessed is the woman who exalts the LORD, and loves her husband. Blessed is the child that is chastised for their sins, thanking the LORD for their correction. Woe unto the person who trusteth in their riches. Woe unto the child that respects not their parents and despises the LORD. Woe unto them that gives ye not glory, praise and love. Woe unto them that rejoice in their sins and repents not.

Woe unto the person who exalts themselves above God. Woe unto ye that turns not from their sins, disobedience and wickedness, Thy future is dark and thy fate sealed; death and destruction are thy bedfellows, pain and suffering are thy friends. Will ye not turn from the evil in thy heart? The LORD calls all men and women upon the face of the earth to repent; but are thou who is lost and broken, wise enough to hear and understand?Thank you LORD for the provision of our family, our food and for all things. May thy name be exalted above all others, and thy mercy and love be known in the hearts of all. Blessed be the mercies of the LORD unto all.

Liars, liars, all of them lie!

Liars, liars, all of them lie! The rulers exalteth themselves above your word, they think their knowledge and power will save them in the day of trouble. They understand nothing, their lives are wasted and full of vanity. How long will they continue with their folly? Our leaders oppress is with their lies, exchanging evil for good. Our rulers tell us that evil is good and good evil. All they know is darkness, they have transgressed the eternal covenant. Will they ever listen? Will they turn from their wicked ways? Vanity, vanity, all they know and speaketh is vanity. How long until they are forced to bend their knee? How they will see the truth in that day! What a day of understanding that will surely be! My LORD, how great is thy patience and mercy with us sinners. Forgive us I pray, of our iniquities and sins day by day. Blessed and exalted be the name of Jesus!

Believe in Him or perish

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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, lest his deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought of God.

John 3:16-21
