Amazing these puny humans thinking they will call the shots in the afterlife! What are they thinking?
God notices when we dare to celebrate His most holy death – yet stand there actively into sin, keeping sin… dissing Him with our hypocrisy. Do you know His Word enough to realize His displeasure is a clear and present danger – there at “communion”?
…what happens when you are born again, when you are reborn from above Born Again You must die to yourself, and then be reborn – like a grain of wheat dies, to be born again to new life. Jesus said this clearly in John 3: “You must be born again.” verse 3 John 12:24 I […]
Jesus warned us not to be dishonest with Him. You can NOT fake it with God. He knows your heart. You must be genuinely born again.
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).
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?
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.
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 […]
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.
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.’
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.
It cost God to make us His children of privilege. Jesus made this privilege possible for all who come to Him – not just to some, but to all peoples. Some do reject Him (Hebrews 4:6). Their choice. It is a choice, to receive Him or not. Have you accepted salvation in Christ?
1 Kings 18:21 “Elijah approached all the people and said, “How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal [is God], follow him.” Now is the time to speak up, answer, share your faith, tell the truth. With evil right in front of our eyes, around […]
In God’s Home Heaven, we who followed Jesus on earth — will all be truly INVINCIBLE, living in incorruptible, immortal bodies – like Jesus had when He was resurrected. v50 “Now I say this, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God….”
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 […]
Jesus was not a fascist, and neither are His followers. Of course some fakes, the fake faith so-called Christian types may be whatever catches their fancy, but not any genuine Christian (absolutely none). Christian theology and practice in America today is somewhere very far from the fascism spectrum. This should be obvious to the world, […]
Ever felt that “impending doom” when your computer suddenly got a black screen!? Ever call on The Computer Guy to reset? I remember those days. Turning to God is like re-starting. It’s like punching “Reset”. Immediately what’s “current” disappears, and I start over brand new, with no pending doom. Turning to God is – accepting […]
I already met the challenge. What about you? My response to Jesus was, “Yes…. I will follow you with all that I am.” What is your response to this challenge from the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Here is the challenge: The Challenge Creator God came to earth on a mission. God Himself came down to […]
1 John 3:9 No one who is born of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, because God’s seed [His principle of life, the essence of His righteous character] remains [permanently] in him [who is born again —who is reborn from above —spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart for His purpose]; and he [who is […]
Salvation is one sinner agreeing with God. No holding back.
So, what kind of fool are you…? Remember the popular song saying this? “What kind of fool do you think I am?”
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 chooses to do so within His Heavenly legal system.
Getting “born again” is found in several references in the Bible. Jesus Himself said, “You must be born again.” Have you?
Are you ready to lose your soul today – forever? Or are you ready to meet your Maker? Is your account with Him balanced? Hebrews 9:27 …it is appointed and destined for all men to die once and after this [comes certain] judgment We all have “an account” with God. And it starts out in […]

I start most every day something like this: I get on up and get on High. I’m lifted up. I start my day with God in prayer – just me and God in the cavern of my head. Creator God is everywhere. Nowhere that He’s not. And He’s in my head. He knows my thoughts. My thoughts, an open gateway to my soul, for God. I think my thoughts to Him “in prayer”. No one hears me, but God Himself. He even knows what I’m about to say. Oh mysterious, sacred Spirit that lives inside my eternal soul.
When we accept Christ, the whole universe becomes our family domain! We become a child of Creator God. Our new life, spirit and soul, begins eternal life as the Holy Spirit of God, part of the “three in one” mysterious Triune God, takes up residence in our body.
“You thought that I was just like you.” – Psalm 50: verse 21 It all seems so right. God must be just fine with who I am and all I do. A few things might not be right, but God will “get over it” just like I do with things I don’t like. Right? Well, […]
