This is what we will become – transformed in heaven.
Have you heard Jesus’ good news that He can save your soul for all eternity? Have you wondered why you never made that clean break and accepted His offer? Why you have not followed Jesus Jesus compared His message (the “Gospel”) to planting seeds. He taught that His fallen archangel, Lucifer (the Devil/Satan and his […]
Being faithful to Jesus – that is what we want, right? Being faithful – when the Rapture happens? (I really want to go on that ride!) I live for Jesus, and that is why I live with confidence. How ’bout you? Accepting Jesus- plus some other is totally rejected by Jesus. That “other gospel” faith is the road that leads to the other place, not to God’s Home Heaven.
