I’ve got that joy. Do “you greatly rejoice”, and “delight with inexpressible and glorious joy”? You can. But “you must be born again” (Jesus said).
“Rain falls on the just and the unjust alike.” God is like that with us.
What epistle are you “writing” with your life – this moment, this day, this month… as you march to your ending moment? We all, followers of Jesus, have been commissioned as Ambassadors to represent Jesus on earth. How is that going for you?
Fear breaks the dams in my gut. Ever felt fear – like vise grips tightened over your heart? Felt red raw fear? Solutions are not “Automated Jesus Answers”. Each fear I have, I have to deal with — each time. I deal with them, anew. The Lord is with me at all times, so, really: What have I to fear? What have I to dread? Philippians 4:4-7.
PIC: Peruvian Andean road circa 1950. Life is full of choices. You know? (Sometimes you don’t have a choice – like this only road over the Andes: Peruvian Andean road circa 1950.) We want the best choice – every time, right? We make a choice, choosing one over another – in order to have the […]
There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. – Romans 8:1,37-39
Feeling insignificant — there is a reason I don’t shrink into a dark hole of waaah (where they “call whine-one-one” for a “wahmbulance”). What could become despair, is slowly drawn to hope….
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.
Key truths about sin as taught in the Bible.
What a terrific way to live life – being “of good courage and confident hope”. Living with good courage and being confident with hope – comes as a result of living God’s way, staying within what God intended, living “God’s Normal”. Let’s look at this as the Apostle Paul laid it out.
This is what we will become – transformed in heaven.
Jesus is stronger and He wins in the end. And because I am in Christ I am stronger than all the enemies of my soul, and I win in the end. Jesus saved me, brought me up and out of the miry clay. And He will bring me into His Kingdom called Heaven when I die. Hallelujah!
What is due to Jesus, because of what He has done for you? He died for you, for me, for all sinners alike. So – what should be our response to Him?
Heaven for us – starts when we die. Heaven is joy and goodness everywhere – always – where only the goodness of God surrounds us.
The reality for us now is “Christ has in fact been raised from the dead”. The mystery of the Gospel has been revealed – and fulfilled by the Messiah
1 Peter 2:20-25 Amplified Bible 20 After all, what kind of credit is there if, when you do wrong and are punished for it, you endure it patiently? But if when you do what is right and patiently bear [undeserved] suffering, this finds favor with God. Christ Is Our Example 21 For [as a believer] you have […]
In recognition of God as my Creator, my Father in Heaven, in affirmation of my relationship to Him as His born again child, I hereby make the following statements as “My Pact with God”
Are you seeing change in your heart – since you “became a Christian”? We absolutely will see change towards godliness in our life… when the Holy Spirit enters into us. God can accept all your most heinous of sins. He’s got all of it covered by His death on our behalf. So the problem is […]
All our life we deal with the complexities of “owning” two homes: “the home of the body” and our “home with the Lord”. What predominates your living from day to day? Jesus promised as He was leaving earth, going away in the clouds – that He would prepare a place for us in His Home – called Heaven (John 14). Read: Jesus will return soon, just as He left
Years ago when I first became a believer in Jesus, I remember my mama, a Residential School survivor, screaming at me, calling me a traitor, and asking me why I chose a religion that hurt my people. The fact is, I didn’t choose a religion . . . I chose a way of life that healed my spirit. The religion I can do without, but I can’t do without Jesus.
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.
Living in these end times we must “stand tall and lift up your heads [in joy], because…” we will escape God’s promised wrath. Fear not. Trust Him.
I am so saddened by the willy-nilly application of Bible truths nowadays. People make it say whatever they want to – so it will thereby backup their own wishful thinking. The Bible is the standard for Christian thought, seeing as how we believe God inspired Godly men to write as He guided them.
Folks! You can NOT fake it with God. He knows your heart. Faking = Still lost. You can talk like/smell like/pray like/look like/act like/dress like/preach like/give money like/claim church membership like/go to church like… but if your heart is not genuinely His, “with all your heart…”, then you are not saved. You are a God damned “believer”. ‘You must be born again.’
What’s up with you? Will you be “accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass?” Still taking a chance on missing that grand Rapture ride? Why on earth do that!? It will be the most exciting adventure in all of mankind’s history!

Did you know that God is at work? He is working non-stop inside you and me and all us puny mud men humans that He keeps creating.
Be it – bearing the effects of our sin, or experiencing personal tragedy, or being racked by the numbing sorrow of death in the family – we can overcome.
