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.
“If we refuse to admit that we are sinners, then we live in a world of illusion and truth becomes a stranger to us. – 1 John 1:9-10 Wrongdoing If we are actually honest about it, we each must admit that we struggle with our own wrongdoing. If we’re honest. It is that “wrongdoing” that […]
I’m still workin’ more on being more consistently kind, more helpful, more tender-hearted, more forgiving. How ’bout you?
Are you living your temp life faithful to Jesus? Or will you be assigned a place with the hypocrites?
Amazing these puny humans thinking they will call the shots in the afterlife! What are they thinking?
Paul warned the Early Church, and us, of course: Do not tempt the Lord. What does that mean?
Are you going with God? Or, are you going against God? What’s it going to be?
I am a child of the King – not the sum of all my sins.
The book of Revelation is chock-full with revelations from God. This is “prophetic Scripture” foretelling real events that will take place at the end of time as we know it. Specific, cataclysmic, real future events are prophetically given to us. Let’s look into this passage of Revelation 20 and see what’s coming around the corner.
“when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some began to sneer” – Acts 17:32 Still sneering? Or now accepting? When that lightning quick final moment “ends you” and you find yourself of a sudden kneeling, alone before God Eternal in His Majestic Court… “Who’s sneering now?” (Jude 1:10; Acts 17:30-31) With that […]
It’s rather easy to see “if we love Jesus less”. Have you looked into your soul lately? Salvation in Christ involves truly following Christ. To cherish platitudes, to parrot doctrines, to relish Christian fellowship, to love the feelings of worship and prayers to God, to serve Him – even to be nice… is not what God requires for salvation.
Was Jesus actually God? Or was He just a mere man like you and me? That is a question we must decide upon.
We have good days, and some not so good. What was your happiest day ever?
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?
Ever try to convince your mind that your behavior is not really all that bad?
Entrance into God’s Home Heaven is going to be – Oh so very amazing! Wonderful! But getting there is difficult. Frankly, I doubt you ever will. What do you think?
Believing “in the name…” means you believe in “all that Jesus Christ is and does”. Where are you at on this spectrum? Truly saved — almost but not — going to Hell for sure.
We all have a sin problem. Some have dealt with it with God. Others have dealt with it by their own thinking and rationalizations. What have you done with your sin problem?
We are warned by the Apostle Paul and Matthew about the days when many will practice religion to look good, but inwardly… they are “full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean.” This you? Matthew 23:27
Smile. It affects others.
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.
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.’
