There comes a time to stand for Jesus, or deny Jesus. Are you sold-out to Jesus? Jesus made so very clear which sides of issues are His Ways. To not follow His Ways, is equal to not following Him. Ready to meet your Maker, Jesus the Messiah?
If we face death because of our faith in Christ, we can be confident knowing that He is with us all the way. He alone is our hope. “Fear not.” At the moment of our death – we put on Immortality.
God calls His followers to reject sin (2 Corinthians 7:1), all that He calls “sin”, and press on to our upward calling (Philippians 3:12-14). Fake faith does not fool God.
The Rapture promises to be a very, very, extremely extra-special huge event. Do you want to be in on that amazing ride of a lifetime?
Jesus Himself tells us how this is going down.
A “soul” is invisible, of course, so nobody can actually “see” one. But the Bible tells me we all have one. My soul is inside my insides, deep within my being. That is where I run my life, sort of my command center. And I “see” my soul sparkly clean when I confess my sins and Jesus washes me thoroughly.
We are given new life in Christ when we accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Oh the wonder of passing from being “God-damned” to being “marvelously saved by Jesus”. We then begin growing into our natural new life in Christ. Oh how marvelous this journey! Ephesians chapter 1 lists “the natural order of things” in our spiritual dimension.
Because God is extreme to the nth degree – God requires an extreme type of relationship from us. Once we get born again, we will continue growing deeply, naturally, into further maturity in Christ. The wonder of passing from being “God-damned” to being “marvelously saved by Jesus”. Oh how marvelous this journey!
So why on earth not? Why on earth NOT believe in Jesus – and follow Him closely, intensely, with all that you are? What else do you have going? What else on earth is worthy of choosing – above Jesus?
Where’s the real road to heaven? There is a broad way that seems right. But what it seems to be is not what it really is. It “is a broad road that says heaven, but goes to hell.” Sin always says a good thing. It talks a good talk. It attracts us to go that way. Sin promises heaven. But the road it leads down is the highway to hell. Are you on the road to hell, or have you turned your life around – and chosen Jesus?
Do you honestly want to know how to get right with God? Jesus promised He would save us for an eternity of only good, nothing bad. This is what the Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy: Reading the Bible, God’s “sacred writings” – can give you an understanding “that leads to salvation through faith which is […]
“I’m just a Christian,” Giant’s Pitcher Sam Coonrod said. “I believe I can’t kneel before anything but God, Jesus Christ. I chose not to kneel. I feel if I did kneel I’d be a hypocrite.” This is what it will be like after the Rapture, during The Great Tribulation coming-up soon: Public shaming and a […]
Scary thought: Have you thought of this possibility… that you might be agreeing with the Devil himself? According to the Bible, there are only two major players in the entire universe: God Almighty and Lucifer, God’s mightiest created angel, who wanted to be God, and fell from God’s grace, often called “the Devil”. Are you […]
It’s all so senseless looking, worthless, waste – and yet there is one ray of light, a hope for now, today, tomorrow
“Your life is a journey you must travel with a deep consciousness of God. It cost God plenty to get you out of that dead-end, empty-headed life you grew up in. He paid with Christ’s sacred blood, you know. He died like an unblemished, sacrificial lamb….” – 1 Peter 1:18-21 The Message (MSG) To be […]
I think. You think. We all think. But, what does God think? Thinking is necessary. But what if your “think” is not God’s “think”? Then your “think” will end so very badly when you reach That Day of Judgement, quivering before God in the realization that it is His Think that rules the heavens, not yours. Read about God’s “think”. What you think – matters. How you act it out – matters more. It will seal your eternity – with Him, or without Him.
Marvelous grace. To a sinner, what else could be so marvelous? God’s grace, that “un-merited” bestowing of a blessing on me. Just because of Him. Just because He choses to do so within His Heavenly legal system. What marvelous grace of the damning God, who would go so far out of His way to “un-condemn” […]
I am a Christian because… the Bible is too good to have been a fabrication of man. It had to have been orchestrated – by God. I am a Christian because… of tangible evidence of the divinity of Christ. He fulfilled over 360 prophecies written about the coming Messiah – way too many to have been completed by chance. Christ was God in human form. I am a Christian because…
What does it mean to “fight the good fight”? What fight are we in, as believers? Of course, if we are not truly following Christ, then it doesn’t change things one way or the other – whether we fight the good fight or not. But, for those who follow Christ sincerely, it is incumbent upon […]
“…do this well, fearless in your struggle, keeping a firm grip on your faith and on yourself. After all, this is a fight we’re in.” – 1 Timothy 1:verse 18 The Message (MSG) Life is a fierce battle to the death, a struggle to win against all the forces against us. Keep yourself strong in […]
Coming to God on your own terms is like… like careening into court dipsy drunk to fight a DUI offense and thinking the judge will forgive you. The reality of God’s universe is — it’s not your universe. It behooves us to seek after God and get His word on things. Our thoughts are not His thoughts. My thoughts will not be consulted by God on That Day.
My word for the day: Actually Try To Do The Deed. The problems of my day today – I won’t let them take away my joy in Christ. I will not let troubles crowd-out who I really am. In Christ – I am more than victorious over everything, because God holds me in His Hands, […]
I was drawn to this Fox News item (7/26/2019), Sports Illustrated model Haley Kalil says ‘sorry mom’ after dancing to tune containing ‘bad word’. The model said “sorry mom”. She was “sorry” because a “bad word” was in a song she danced to. I wondered, What is her faith background? How did she arrive to […]

Instant Forgiveness 1 John 1:9 Condemnation Voided Romans 8:1 Legally Declared Perfect Colossians 3:3 Promised Eternal Life John 3:16 His Forever Child – Now 1 John 5:13 Eternity […]
Jesus taught us how to have perfect peace in the midst of stress and troubles. Don’t we all want perfect peace in our inner soul? If we worry and fret over many things – it is because we try to live focused on God AND …some other “master”. “You cannot serve God and wealth [m […]
Quotes about mere puny mud-men and women of clay – us.
Is it really all that important — who you are and what you believe? When it comes to God, getting born again, and what is or is not “a part of walking the walk” – does it matter? What is it, really, — getting “saved” and, following Jesus or following whatever? Does it matter? Do […]
Do you know why you believe what you believe? Do you know what is the basis for your beliefs about God? When I was a child, I had all kinds of “beliefs”. Much of what I “thought” — turned-out to be make-believe. Ephemeral. Like mist. Much of what people think – is so baseless, without […]
What you say is absolutely worthless – without all of you behind it in action. I think what God is saying here is: It’s all or nothing.
What drives you, day by day, to do the things you do, to act the way you choose to act? Those who are faithful to Christ – are not faithful all-at-once, and faultless thereafter. Those who are faithful to the end – are faithful over time, little-by-little. Faithfulness is a process. We live, we try, […]
…The Simple Gospel of Jesus Christ. God walked the earth as a man… Have you ever wondered how it all got started – the universe, the earth, nature, animals, you and your “like”, mankind? THE BEGINNING. Any belief system has to start with: the start. What is it!? What happened to get all-that-is …into existence? […]
