I fear no evil because “Even though I walk through the [sunless] valley of the shadow of death [a valley of deep darkness]… You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort and console me. – Psalm 23:4
I belong to Jesus. How ’bout you? What kind of commitment did YOU make to Jesus?
The other day a man walked through the door of a bar in the countryside. I could see where his heart was, deep inside him, because a well-beaten path led back to his own door. His heart was bare open, plain to see. Our hearts are laid bare open by …the evidences smeared all over the course of our life.
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.
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?
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).
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 […]
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.
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.
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!
A “soul” is invisible, of course, so nobody can actually “see” one. But the Bible tells me we all have one. My soul is inside my insides, deep within my being. That is where I run my life, sort of my command center. And I “see” my soul sparkly clean when I confess my sins and Jesus washes me thoroughly.
Are you tipping the scales to get what you want? Maybe using the wrong scales? “You are all wrong
because you know neither the Scriptures [which teach the resurrection] nor the power of God [for He is able to raise the dead].”
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?
Scientists are discovering more and more new evidences for the existence of God — and not admitting it. Graphic pictures of our DNA (top of this page) totally astound with evidence of an Intelligent Designer (otherwise known as “God”, Jesus the Messiah, Creator of all that is). There simply has to be a growing cognitive dissonance within the wise guys’ social clique.
Photo: Not even Albert Einstein understood “time”. This article is a series, a guide to “time” in the Bible. In God’s Home Heaven — “time” will be no more. We all know too well that – here and now… time marches on. I continually must just “rest” in Him, not rely on my limited thinking, […]
The time it takes to go from earth to God’s presence – is instant. There is no waiting around in the next dimension for earth time to finish, no midway point of gathering, no Purgatory. It will be an instantaneous experience for all mankind that ever lived. At the moment of death, our soul instantly leaves…
“When winds are raging o’er the upper ocean,
And billows wild contend with angry roar,
‘Tis said, far down beneath the wild commotion,
That peaceful stillness reigneth evermore.”
Ever thought about this?…how “for salvation in Christ — hating is life changing”? Part of Jesus’ message says: 1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed out of death into Life, because we love the brothers and sisters. He who does not love remains in [spiritual] death. Hate is “eternal-life-changing”. Scary thought. Are you […]
You don’t always want to kneel – just because “the whole world” is kneeling, not now at stadiums during the singing of our national anthem — and certainly NOT when the Antichrist is asking you to kneel during The Great Tribulation (which is coming to the entire planet sooner than you think). Nowadays there’s a […]
Jesus is inviting you to come into His Kingdom. Forever! Imagine how exotic and opulent – His Place? Is that exciting – or what!? I’m looking for that! Have you visited Jesus, like the rich young ruler, and blindly held-on to your ways in the midst of all your religiosities? It is a fearful thing to consider being rejected by a damning God. How far would you go to NOT be God-damned?
I really liked this comment by Robert Burns – a good little twist of words on J.D. Farag‘s YouTube: What the future holds: (Read comments at end of this article. I have copied some to the FOR MORE section below.) robert burns 1 month ago: I would rather stand with God and be judged […]
“I’m just a Christian,” Giant’s Pitcher Sam Coonrod said. “I believe I can’t kneel before anything but God, Jesus Christ. I chose not to kneel. I feel if I did kneel I’d be a hypocrite.” This is what it will be like after the Rapture, during The Great Tribulation coming-up soon: Public shaming and a […]
The “church of the living God” is “the household of God”. That is the importance of “church”. We represent God on earth. Each of us is one of His Ambassadors. The local church is full of both (1) bible believing, born again believers and (2) God-damned believers. Both the wheat and the tares are in […]
“Your life is a journey you must travel with a deep consciousness of God. It cost God plenty to get you out of that dead-end, empty-headed life you grew up in. He paid with Christ’s sacred blood, you know. He died like an unblemished, sacrificial lamb….” – 1 Peter 1:18-21 The Message (MSG) To be […]
“I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever does not receive and welcome the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.” – Mark 10:15 Excerpt from: More Than Conquerors – In Christ My faith is in Jehovah God, Yahweh, the great “I AM,” the God of forgiveness and […]

Quoting a bumper sticker: “Know God, know peace. No God, no peace.” Isaiah the prophet spoke to the Lord, “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you” – Isaiah 26:3 Modern English Version (MEV) Same verse in another version: “You will keep in […]
The statement of faith to which we subscribe: We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible authoritative Word of God. We believe the Triune Godhead exists in One Eternal, Transcendent, Omnipotent, personal God, manifested in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The substitutionary and redemptive sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ […]
