Earth corrupted before the LORD

“The earth also was corrupt before God; and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt: for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”

Verse Reference: Genesis 6:11-13

Memory Lesson: Renewal of the earth is forthcoming, and we all need to be ready for His coming.

Why I love God

I love God because,

He loves me
I need Him
He loves me
I  am nothing
He loves me
I am of sin
He loves me
I was lost
He  found me
I was broken
He healed me
I was without hope
He sent His Son
I was guilty of sin
He sent His Son
Now I am free
He loved me first
I ignored Him
He waited
I went astray
He waited
I felt His call
He still loves me
I gave my heart
He sent His Spirit
I was lost
Because of His Son
Now I know
That He loves me

God bless,

Why Evolution is a LIE

EVOLUTION vs CREATION

Choice #1: The universe, life, and all creation came to exist by random chance. Evolutionists scorn Christians for having “blind faith” in the Bible and existence of God. Objectively speaking, the evolutionists have a very great problem to deal with as we shall later see. As I understand, the Darwinian Theory of Evolution goes something like this: Long ago in the distant past, a singular event called the Big Bang occurred, bringing into being the universe, galaxies, stars, planets and such. This explosion created all things, distributing elemental matter and energy throughout. Allowing for eons of time, all of the astronomical bodies were created and formed. Continuing to allow for sufficient eons of time, life came into existence. Going forward, all of life’s glorious diversity and beauty, exist solely due to the process of evolution.

What exactly is evolution? What is its driving force? How precisely does it occur? Our children are taught in school that the human species evolved and descended from primates. Assuming this was actually possible, what was the catalyst for change? Why would a fully-evolved primate, or any other creature, perfectly adapted to its environment, undertake a process of evolution and change to improve and grow? Consider that all primates have the ability to mate and reproduce without genetic mutation. This biological capacity must have evolved as well, agreed? They are able to gather food, make a shelter, establish social structure, develop a language, communication skills, and so forth. All of these essential characteristics must by necessity, must also have evolved along with their physical makeup.

Given all this, what caused primates to slowly evolve into humans? Did they prefer to drive automobiles rather than swing from tree to tree? Would they rather play video games than chase sticks? Were they lacking anything? No. No. No! Science has determined that primates have something like 98-99% of our DNA, therefore they say it is a small evolutionary jump for primates to become human. This small genetic difference makes all the difference in the world, for primates are not on the same level as humans, nor did we evolve from them. Considering that God created humans to be part of His family, this small difference of 1-2% is enormous. Yes, all of life became animated and functional from God’s breath, but they were not all provided with His Spirit. This singular difference is the key that unlocks a right and proper understanding of this entire question.

Before moving on, may I ask you a question? Can you create something from nothing? If your answer is no, then the theory of evolution must be a lie, for this is its most basic premise. How about you go and create a wooden table. Can you do that? Great!! Before you begin, I should give you some conditions, namely: We will assume that you do in fact exist. No wood is available because trees do not exist, so you will need to create trees. To make a tree will require elements such as nitrogen, oxygen, carbon, and so on, so you must create them as well. Further, the tree will need soil, water, sunlight and heat, so you must add these to your creation to-do list. Also, you do not have any tools, computers, research facilities and so forth to help you, so they must be created as well. Have a I left anything out?

 Let us try another one shall we? I will give you all the parts required to assemble [not create] a car. Yes, all of the parts in a great big pile over there on the floor. Listen, it is almost lunch time and I am a bit hungry, and am going to run out for something to eat. While I am away, take all of the car parts and throw them at one another. That’s right, you have the general idea. Now when I come back, you can show me the lovely car which you have assembled [not created]. What’s that now, you need some tools? I am very sorry, but that would be cheating. You do not want to cheat do you? No, you assemble the car by randomly throwing the parts together. One more thing, there are no instructions or prints to follow, and the thousands of parts only fit together one way. Bye now, see you later, good luck and have fun!

Do you still want to believe in evolution? Can you create a rose? More specifically, can you create a rose from nothing? No. Therefore, the theory of evolution remains at best a quaint curiosity, which in reality in no more than a lie.

Choice #2: There is a sovereign God who has always existed, created all things, and recorded His word for us in the Bible. Yes, this acceptance is an act of faith that God does indeed exist. Those who believe in evolution also have a type of faith, a false faith mind you, but faith none the less. Their faith is this: A long ago big bang event distributed all of the matter and energy throughout the universe, although they cannot explain where the raw materials came from in the first place, or how this process got started. Nor how all things, inanimate and living were created by random chance. Have you finished the table or assembled the car yet? That evolution continues today at an imperceptibly slow pace (by faith), and that humans continue to evolve is simply ridiculous.

One final question they cannot answer is, why? What is the purpose of life? Evolutionists cannot explain this. Philosophy cannot answer this question. God however, has answered this question for us in the Bible. Which will you choose? Either choice requires an act of faith. Will you enter into the light or continue to stumble around in the dark? Will you choose life or death? Make the right choice – please.  

GOD BLESS

Blessed be the poor

Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled.
Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.

Luke 6:20-22 (KJV)

Are ye hungry for the word of God? Does your soul thirst for the words of truth? Do ye take the time to drink daily of His cup of life? The word of God is more valuable than fine jewels, more precious than gold, and sweeter than wine. It is our daily food unto salvation and refreshment unto our soul. Like the potter who maketh the clay, in like manner does His word build up, layer upon layer until the new creation is able to stand on its own. Blessings unto all ye who daily place their trust in the word of life and truth. O  how my soul hungers for thy word, how my heart pants after thy commandments. My LORD and King, this world persecutes us, laughing us to scorn, and makes us foolish in their eyes. Their tongues are like arrows of fire, lies and vanity springeth forth from their depths. When your kingdom commeth Father, then shall your saints   rejoice with gladness in our hearts. Ye foolish of this world,  you are empty, broken and utterly destitute, likewise all of us once were before we came unto thee, our God, King and LORD. Persecute us O fallen world, make murmuring behind us, and lay snares before us, it matters not. Our future is set, the script is written and the banquet booked.

The word of our God shall not ye extinguish, nor shall your wickedness prevail. Victory is assured, resting upon the ancient promises. O ye of this world, cast off thy sins and embrace life, otherwise only death and destruction await thee. All ye nations of the earth, hear ye the word of the LORD. A controversy He has with thee, that shall not be diminished. His wrath upon thee will He pour, then shall all nations cry unto heaven for reason of their suffering. They have forsaken thy ways and rended their heart, their ears are closed and hearth not thy voice. Have mercy upon them O LORD, and do not utterly destroy them. Will ye grant them time to repent? Will ye hear the cries of many upon the earth? How much time is still to unfold? When shall the end be, my King and LORD?

This world has a terminal disease which must be purged from all creation before there can be true peace. All of man’s ways are vanity, all is for nought, and there is no good upon this earth. God is not allowing pain, suffering and death to rule upon the earth, rather it is he who is causing it. The hardness of man’s heart, the stubbornness of his ways, and the lusting after evil, has brought his judgment against. From this, the LORD will not turn back. The reign of sin and death must not be allowed to continue forever without end. The enemy is defeated, knowing his days are counted as few and the battle nearly at an end. Listen not to the god of this world, turn away from his seducing lies; believe them not, for they only lead to death. The path to glory is established, and we shall not turn back. There is only one path, only one way, and only one option. Blessings unto you O LORD for the shed blood of your Son Jesus, cleansing us clean of our sins and laying a bridge to salvation. Come. Join us. Kneel at His cross and accept His offer of salvation. Repent of thy sins and lies. Come. The LORD is waiting for you. Come. The truth stands ready to embrace you. Come. The days grow short and time passes by. The day when He calls TIME!, approaches. What will you do upon that day? There is no place to flee, nowhere to hide and none you can call. Except one. Call upon the LORD Jesus now, while you are able.

Many blessings in His name,

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,

Blessings and Cursings

Even among Christian circles, few of us are aware of the underlying cause of death, pain, suffering and a broken-down world. To understand the answer we need only to look no further than our Bibles, and in particular, Deuteronomy 28 and Leviticus 27. Just like us today, the LORD assured Ancient Israel of tremendous blessings for obeying His laws and commandments. More importantly, He guaranteed their destruction if they chose to follow their own ways in disobedience.

This is the reason for all of the hurt, pain and untold suffering in our world. Sadly to say, but even most Christians today do not obey the LORD. Yet there is hope. Individual repentance and a heart-felt admission of our sins before the Almighty God brings forgiveness, and a new start in Jesus Christ. I plead with you all to follow the teachings in the Bible, and to be wary of the teachings of men and religious institutions. Time is short and the night far spent. The end of this present world is near and judgment is coming, guaranteed by the word of the LORD Almighty Himself. May He lead you to the truth that will never end.

God bless all of you,

True Advice

A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver or fine gold. The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.

A prudent man forseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.

Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them. Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

Psalm 22:1

A covenant by faith

Genesis 15:xx
After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abraham in a vision saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield and exceeding great reward. Verse 1

And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness. Verses 5-6

The LORD made a truly incredible promise to Abram (Abraham), which was not to be fulfilled during his lifetime. The descendants of Abram would go on to father new nations and peoples over the earth, commencing with his sons Ishmael and Issac. Notice how the LORD counted Abram’s belief in him (i.e. actions) as righteousness. This is not the same kind of “belief” that most christians claim to have today. No, the type of belief Abram had was much, much more. I do not have the space here today to delve into all his stories, but would encourage you to read these for yourself in the book of Genesis . Abram’s belief, the true belief in God, always involved some action on his part. Unlike far too many christians today, he did not say in his heart, “Yes, LORD, I know you are God , and in you I trust” – although this is very, very important. True belief in God must be much more. Notice the words of the Apostle John “By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.” 1 John 5:2-3. Also in James 1:22-23 “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding is natural face in a glass.” And finally the words of Jesus, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15. Scripture is filled with examples of and reference to the true belief in God. What kind of “belief” do you have?

Obey my commandments
Are we all now being called?

Vanity of human constructions

HTML clipboard“And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass as they journeyed from the East, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. And they said one to another; Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone and slime they had for mortar. And they said; Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven, and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said; Behold, the people is one, and they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and their confound their language, that they may not understand one anothers speech.”

Verse Reference: Genesis 11:1-7

Godly communications

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.”

Verse Reference: Proverbs 15:1-4

Memory Lesson: A soft answer turneth away wrath.
