Anything contrary to God’s expressed will has to be carefully avoided. Homosexuality, for example, is pushed nowadays as “okay by God”. But actually, it is listed in the Bible right beside many other practices that are not pleasing to God. Temptation towards any sin is NOT sinful. But, if we practice a sin, then we deny Christ. Want to please God in all you do?
God is easy, light-handed, gentle
Find blessed quiet for your soul in Jesus. You can trust Him. He is gentle and kind.
Forgiveness for evil deeds done
Time and tide are relentless. So are the many relentless Old Testament prophecies happening right now – but not in the way most thought they would be fulfilled. Are you ready for “the end” that Jesus spoke of? Take Jesus’ Challenge.
Are you “contrary” – not conforming to the Gospel?
You do not have to stay on God’s Sin List… contrary, unholy, practicing sin. God wants us all to repent. Ready to repent?
When a sinner repents
Have you paused, drawn near to God in prayer… and given your life to Jesus? Don’t wait till you die to step into eternity – do it now through “rebirth” in Jesus.
God forgives all wrongdoings of all repentant sinners, no exception
I’m still workin’ more on being more consistently kind, more helpful, more tender-hearted, more forgiving. How ’bout you?
What is good, and what is not
Are you going with God? Or, are you going against God? What’s it going to be?
Salvation will cost you
Salvation is free in the sense that we pay no money, pay no church, pay no official, don’t have to “clean-up your life”… in order to accept God’s salvation. But salvation is not “free” to anyone: it will cost you dearly.
Was Jesus actually God Almighty?
Was Jesus actually God? Or was He just a mere man like you and me? That is a question we must decide upon.
Faithful and True
I live to be faithful and true daily, so I am ready when Jesus returns. How about you? Are you faithful and true to Jesus?
Forget about it
What do you do with the sins of your past? Paul says, I am continually, consciousely, purposely forgetting all those things of my past, what is behind me. I leave them back there, behind me. And now — I press on.
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.
The message of salvation spoken by Jesus to Paul
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.
Saying no to Jesus is a dead faith with dead works
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.
It’s all about Christ
There is nothing more pressing, nothing more important at any time in your life – than to “be right with Christ”.
The Gift by His Precious, Undeserved Grace
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.
“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?
We pray because God cares, and He hears what we say. The beginning of prayer is the purifying of our spirit. All that self-talk we all engage our minds in throughout the day? “Talk it” to God. If I take my eyes off Jesus… I become unbalanced in my soul. I take refuge in God… There is no better way to deal with life. The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R
Jesus is Creator God
So why on earth not? Why on earth NOT believe in Jesus – and follow Him closely, intensely, with all that you are? What else do you have going? What else on earth is worthy of choosing – above Jesus?
We must seek after God
Peace within our own boundaries is not guaranteed. It is so important in these days that we all draw near to God, and pray. We must seek after God, while He yet can be found. Deuteronomy 4:29 “…seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your […]
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.
Farther along we’ll understand why
There is so much that I just do not understand. Why this, why that…? I refuse to refuse Jesus Well, rather than blame God, rant and rage, or refuse to fall-in-line with certain difficult teachings of Jesus… I have chosen to trust that God understands more than I. I refuse to refuse Jesus. Are you […]
His due sentencing
Did you know that we are all due to appear before The Judge of All to receive His holy justice, His due sentencing? Sure as hell – what is due to God is “owed at a certain time”, a time of God’s choosing. And that time is upon death. Your strength of will cannot help you avoid His due sentencing. Ready?
This is salvation in Christ
It’s a very simple message from God, actually – what He expects of us. His message is to all of us — us sinful, willful, rebellious, self-centered creatures. God is asking you and me to repent.
One Human Race
We are actually all together one race. Is anyone reading the Bible – and actually trying to follow Jesus – with love for others?
God forgives sins by His Holy Holy Justice
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.
The faithful have a faith that is staying alive day by day.Through all our struggles, we keep our eyes on Jesus, saying yes to Him and saying no to sin – following Him by faith.
About past sins and being forgiven now
The very clear message of Christ is that sinners can be changed when they repent in sincerity and truth, choosing to become God’s true followers. You can have all your sinful past forgiven by God, and be totally accepted into His Forever Family immediately, both here on earth now – and in heaven where we are declared forgiven in His Courts. Don’t be fooled into hell by thinking your sin is legitimate before God.
Oh How Marvelous
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.
