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?
Contemplate arriving in sin – before Almighty, Holy, God.
Jesus spoke this to Paul on the road to Damascus – one short verse that explains the Gospel of salvation in Jesus, in Acts 26:18.
I for one do not want to arrive in God’s Courts with filthy rags on, stinking of sin – before the God of the Universe. How ’bout you? Do you wear filthy robes – or have you been beautified with rich robes of forgiveness? God is able to take away all your past sinfulness — and place you in good standing with Him. No matter how grave your sin, no matter how long you sinned, no matter. No problem. He is able.
Key truths about sin as taught in the Bible.
Jesus came to die for us (John 3:16-21). But He was also a prophet. Jesus predicted the destruction of Jerusalem (which did happen in 70 AD). He also speaks of the end times of the earth.
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.’

So you want to go to Heaven. The Bible tells us so much about God’s Home Heaven. God created us inside a physical world. Here we are limited by time and space. But Heaven is in the spirit world dimension where Father God dwells.
“8 Billion people can’t be wrong!” “On the contrary, billions of people CAN be wrong!” Reminded me of just how many people will be affected when Jesus suddenly surprises them, actually coming back just as He said He would. Are you ready for that day, or will it surprise you all to Hell?
Psalm 51 is a Psalm by King David of Israel, written in confession and repentance after Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had seduced Bathsheba. He asked God, Wash me. Cleanse me.
Thief On The Cross. Nothing religious was done by the thief. He merely (1) confessed his sinfulness, and (2) acknowledged Jesus as “the Christ”.
It was quite the mystery of the universe. Sin had destroyed the lovely Garden of Eden relationship Adam and Eve had with Creator God. So God established a “covenant of forgiveness”, a system of sacrifice whereby His followers could be forgiven.
But it was obvious that we on earth could not go on for all of eternity sacrificing lambs for the forgiveness of sins. What did God have in the works? It remained a mystery for centuries. And then, finally, according to His perfect timing, He revealed the answer.
I thank God every day that He brought me up, out of the miry clay. I am sure as Hell that you have seen the miry clay, the sins. Have you, sure as Heaven, experienced the mind-bending, clean-up, brand new making power of Jesus – Creator God?
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 […]
If you tolerate bad behavior, you in effect are condoning the bad. The Bible says here that the person who practices or permits or tolerates evil (evil = that which is not of God) cannot possibly be a true follower of Jesus.
Your Lifestyle… is what you do day in and day out. Jesus warned us to not be dishonest with Him. Read: Sincerity and Truth 1. If you choose to accept Jesus as your Savior, then follow Him with all that you are. Following Him is the natural thing to do — if you were actually […]
Heaven. What’s it going to be? Many say, I can only imagine. Well, not really – because we can really know, not merely “imagine”. The Bible tells us a lot about Heaven.
Without Christ we are all due to appear before The Judge of All to receive His holy justice, His due sentencing. 18 For [God does not overlook sin and] the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who in their wickedness suppress and stifle the truth, 19 because that which […]
When we start “the after-life”, things will heat-up for some of us, but things get really cool for the rest of us. If you know what I mean. Jesus predicted “the end” (Matthew 24:verse 14), and He’s showing us signs of the times in order to give us a heads up.
You do know, right (?)… that we are actually all together one race? Today’s news events of hate-filled cops and hate-filled rioters and hate-filled political movements seem to indicate otherwise. Is anyone reading the Bible – and actually trying to follow Jesus? I’m sure you heard about this murder of George Floyd. It happened in […]
Salvation is one sinner agreeing with God that he needs a Savior, calling on Jesus to forgive him, and following His Way all the way, no holding back. Anything less is just religion. No religion in heaven. Jesus said to him, “I am the [only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the [real] […]
the ones who will be blessed throughout eternity – are “those who hear the word of God and continually observe it.”
What do you know about God, the most holy in the universe? Our Holy Holy Holy God was (and is) so opposed to anything not holy – that He volunteered to die in order to be able to save us all – you and me. THAT is truly the biggest Wonder of the Universe. God came to earth as a man, Jesus! His holy system of justice demanded holy justice. So He Himself went to the cross.
Excerpt re-edited. From the article: Accepting What God Rejects When I reconcile with God everything changes. You know? That happen in your life? Or not? We need to get this right. Are you for real? You can fool yourself and others around you, but not God. Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not […]
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.
Excerpt from the article: God Speaking Repent now. There is no magic formula or speech. Just speak your heart to Me, sincerely and truthfully. I can hear your voice. I can hear your thoughts. Direct your heart to Me — something like this: Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe you […]
You don’t always get what you asked for, right? You ask for truly organic… do you want human waste fertilizer used on your lettuce? What a crock! You ask for and expect true love. But how do you feel when your boyfriend runs around on you? Where’s the truth in that “I love you” of […]
Are you “right on the edge of trusting him forever“? Doesn’t matter who you are, where you’ve been, what you’ve done, how bad you are, how depraved you’ve been – Jesus died to provide a way for you to be saved forever. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus you can be made brand new […]
