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?
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?
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
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.
There is no other saving gospel
What “gospel” are you into? The Bible says there is no other gospel that saves us for all eternity – except the original Gospel of the early church apostles. None. The great falling away from the faith, predicted by Paul, is happening right now in the form of Bethel and other NAR-related church doctrines.
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.
There is nothing more pressing, nothing more important at any time in your life – than to “be right with Christ”.
Christ secured our eternal home. Jesus paid it all – so we could be forgiven of all these sins, all our past, all that separates us from The Most Holy God. What’s not covered? He’s got it all covered, penalty paid. We just need to humbly get together with Him and plead His grace upon 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
Oh how marvelous – His grace towards us, sinners all. When it comes to repentance for salvation – Jesus is all inclusive. He will accept any truly repentant sinner of any vile stripe. You name it, He will forgive. But His is a limited grace. Don’t try to squeeze-by in His courts of justice.
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 […]
Reading the tiny book of Jude we see how desperately lost people are without Christ. It is no small matter, rejecting the soul-cleansing power of salvation in Christ. You think you are just fine, hunky-dory? Have you considered how God sees you?
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.
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.
Scripture uses farmers terms. It calls true believers “wheat”, and fake believers “tares”. A tare is a plant that grows up with wheat, but is not true wheat.
Tares are like the piglet that suckles with the kitten’s mother cat. The piglet thinks he’s a kitten because he likes the milk. But he’s only a pig, not a cat. The same is true of folk who like the idea of being blessed by Christ, but never yield to Him.
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.’

Are you ready to go with Jesus in the Rapture? See this very well-stated Salvation video, and get ready for the Rapture of His followers!
Is your “god” too small? Does “he” leave you fearful about your eternity? What kind of god have you chosen? Were you ever truly born again – back when you supposedly “accepted Christ”?
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.
IF you are “in Christ”, everything is new for you. Your name can go on every line in this list below! Test yourself. Maybe there is more to your Christian life than what you are experiencing.
Resurrection verses of 1 Corinthians 15:verses 12-58
Thief On The Cross. Nothing religious was done by the thief. He merely (1) confessed his sinfulness, and (2) acknowledged Jesus as “the Christ”.
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!
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.
