"TRUST, REJOICE and Be GLAD!"

 

“TRUST, REJOICE and Be Glad!”

 

In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in Him, and He saved us.  This is the LORD, we trusted in Him; let us rejoice and be glad in His Salvation.”    Isaiah 25:9

 

In that DAY, the DAY when the Almighty God will SWALLOW UP death FOREVER.  When He will wipe AWAY the tears from all faces; and will remove the disgrace of the Jewish people from all the earth.  The DAY when the SALVATION of MANKIND will be COMPLETE. 

 

In THAT Day, the REDEEMED of the LORD, will be able to say:  “Surely this is OUR God; in whom we have TRUSTED and He has SAVED US from SIN and its PENALTY.” 

 

In Psalm 86:2, the Psalmist, whom I believe to be King David, says: “GUARD my life, for I am FAITHFUL to You; SAVE Your servant who TRUSTS in You.”  These are VERY GOOD REASONS to REJOICE and BE GLAD.  God is our REFUGE and our STRENGTH; He is our SALVATION. David also says, in Psalm 68:3 “May the RIGHTEOUS be GLAD and REJOICE before God may they be HAPPY and JOYFUL.”  As God’s Children, we are the RIGHTEOUS, and it is in the HEART of God for His Children, NOT ONLY to TRUST Him but to REJOICE and BE GLAD for our SALVATION is near. 

 

In that DAY, when JESUS CHRIST returns to GATHER UP (RAPTURE) God’s children from this SIN-DRENCHED world and ALL its HEARTACHES, PAINS, AGONIES, and DESPAIRS, and our SALVATION is COMPLETED, we can TRULY REJOICE and BE GLAD.  Can you TRUST GOD with your destiny, and REJOICE and BE GLAD in your SALVATION?

 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you have NO SALVATION, but you are headed for an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there.  In order for you to receive God’s FREE Gift of SALVATION, you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your SINFUL lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and TRUST, REJOICE and BE GLAD.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"Look Forward and Do Not Slip Back!"

 

“Look Forward and Do Not Slip Back!”

 

So think clearly and exercise self-control.  Look forward to the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world.  So you must live as God’s Obedient Children.  Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires.  You didn’t know any better then.  But now you must be holy in everything you do just as God Who chose you is holy.  For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”     1st Peter 1:12-16

 

A very IMPORTANT part of SALVATION is OBEDIENCE to God.  And one cannot be OBEDIENT to God when they don’t have a TRUE RELATIONSHIP with Him.  The Psalmist, wrote in Psalm 119:101, that; he refused to walk on any evil path, so that he might remain OBEDIENT to God’s Word.  He had a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with God, and was OBEDIENT to Him and His Word.

 

The Apostle Peter, tells us that as TRUE BELIEVERS, we should THINK CLEARLY and EXERCISE SELF-CONTROL.  In other words, DON’T LET your mind wonder BACK to your OLD SINFUL lifestyle, and become INFLUENCED by its sinful ways, but EXERCISE SELF-CONTROL.  One way to do that is to LOOK FORWARD to the COMPLETION of your SALVATION when JESUS CHRIST is revealed to the world.  You MUST LIVE as OBEDIENT CHILDREN of the LIVING GOD.  And DO NOT SLIP BACK into your old ways of living, don’t LIVE by the FLESH, but LIVE by the Spirit, which indwells you, and is WAITING and READY to give you GODLY guidance in your DAILY LIFE. 

 

Since your SALVATION, you are encouraged to BE HOLY, in EVERYTHING you do, this is POSSIBLE through the work of God’s Holy Spirit.  Like the Psalmist said: “I have REFUSED to WALK on ANY EVIL path, so that I may remain OBEDIENT to Your Word.” We are instructed by God to BE HOLY as He is HOLY. (Lev. 19:2)

 

 You KNOW that God paid DEARLY to save you from your WRETCHED, SIN-FILLED life, and the RANSOM He paid was NOT with SILVER or GOLD, but it was with the PRECIOUS BLOOD of Jesus Christ, the SINLESS, SPOTLESS LAMB of GOD.  And JESUS has been revealed to us in these LAST DAYS.  Through this plan of SALVATION, we have a RELATIONSHIP with Father God, who wants us to LOOK FORWARD to our SALVATION and NOT to SLIP BACK into our OLD SIN-FILLED lifestyle.  Do you have that RELATIONSHIP with FATHER GOD?

 

IF you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then your DESTINY will be an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there.  You do NOT have a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with the HEAVENLY FATHER, and you are NOT PLEASING to Him because of your DISOBEDIENCE towards Him and His Word.  You have been REJECTING His Son, the LORD JESUS, and will not be able to INHERIT an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, until you become His OBEDIENT Child.  You do that by:  Being WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and to TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for You, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and LOOK FORWARD and DON’T SLIP BACK!  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"The Once for All Sacrifice"

 

“The Once for All Sacrifice”

 

Not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another---He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.  And as it is appointed for mankind to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many.  To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.    Hebrews 9:25-28

 

We are TRULY BLESSED to be living in this time of History.  Because in Old Testament times, the people had to offer SACRIFICES, MANY TIMES, for their SALVATION.  Today, however, we have been BLESSED with a ONCE FOR ALL SACRIFICE, which is God’s ONE and ONLY SON, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, the One who offered Himself, as a LIVING, BLOOD SACRIFICE, in order to REDEEM MANKIND from their sins ONCE and for ALL. 

 

UNREPENTED MANKIND are SINFUL, by nature, and are appointed ONCE to die, and then to face JUDGMENT, and SENTENCED to an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after they are there.  However, from ETERNITY PAST, God has had a PLAN to REDEEM sinful mankind from their DOOMED ETERNAL DESTINY.  That PLAN was structured on the ONE TIME SACRIFICE of His ONLY BEGOTTEN SON.  It had to be a BLOOD SACRIFICE, because without the SHEDDING of BLOOD, there is NO REMISSION of SINS.  (v22)

 

So, the LORD JESUS was BORN SINLESS, LIVED SINLESS, DIED SINLESS and RESURRECTED SINLESS.  He was the PERFECT SINLESS, ONCE-FOR-ALL SACRIFICE to secure the TRULY REPENTANT SOULS for a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with the Almighty God, and for an ETERNITY in HEAVEN with ALL its BLESSINGS.  He was offered ONCE to bear the sins of MANY.  He was TORTURED, HORRIBLY BEATEN, and HUNG on an OLD WOODEN, RUGGED CROSS.  HE PAID the PRICE for our FREEDOM from SIN and its ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES.  And those who have TRULY REPENTED of their SINS and have ACCPTED JESUS CHRIST as their SAVIOR and LORD, are EAGERLY AWAITING HIS SOON RETURN, when our SALVATION will be a DONE DEAL, and we will ENJOY ALL the BLESSING that are PROVIDED to US by our ONCE-FOR-ALL SACRIFICE.  Are you EAGERLY AWAITING His RETURN?

 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, through His ONCE-FOR-ALL SACRIFICE, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, then you probably are NOT EAGERLY AWAITING His RETURN.  But instead you are facing certain JUDGMENT and CONDEMNATION, and an ETERNITY in HELL, with NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you’re there.  So, why NOT do something about it NOW?  God in His INFINITE MERCY and His AMAZING GRACE, is offering His ONCE-FOR-ALL SACRIFICE, JESUS CHRIST to you, NOW, if you will TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and be able to EAGERLY AWAIT HIS RETURN, and to spend your ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its blessings.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"The Seed"

 

“The Seed”

 

“Now the parable is this:  The Seed is the Word of God.  Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.  But the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away.  Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity.   But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.     Luke 8:11-15

 

This is the meaning of a Parable that Jesus spoke to a crowd of people.  It was about a farmer sowing some seed. (VV5-8)  In verse nine, His Disciples asked Him, “what the parable meant.  So, He gave the meaning to His Disciples.  The SEED is the WORD of GOD. 

 

There are four kinds of people, which are represented by four types of soil.  First, we have those who HEAR but they do NOT BELIEVE, because of the work of the devil.  The Second group are those who LISTEN and REJOICE, but they do NOT STICK with the TRUTH of the MESSAGE, because they have NO ROOT, they are the ones who are blown about by EVERY wind of DOCTRINE. In other words, they will FOLLOW ANYONE or ANY BELIEF.  They ONLY accept the FACTS of the WORD, with their minds. And then REJECT it with their HEART, especially when things get tough and the TRIALS come, they go.  This does not mean that they LOSE their SALVATION, because they NEVER had any SALVATION to LOSE.  

 

The third group are those who LISTEN but NEVER mature.  They may be interested in the MESSAGE of the LORD JESUS, but they CANNOT ACCEPT it because of their “idols” of LIFE’S CARES, RICHES, and PLEASURES of this EARTHLY LIFE.   Therefore, they cannot and will not be able to LEAD anyone else to the LORD.  They will NOT be able to BEAR FRUIT.

 

The fourth group are those who LISTEN, and will RETAIN or KEEP the Word of God in their HEARTS and MINDS, and will produce a SPIRITUAL CROP of others who NEED SALVATION. This is EVIDENCE of their SPIRITUAL MATURITY and their SPIRITUAL FRUIT.  These are the ONES who will inherit HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS as their ETERNAL HOME.  Which group are you a part of?

 

If you are NOT a part of the FOURTH GROUP, then your ETERNAL HOME will be HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you’re there.  In order to become a part of this FOURTH GROUP, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and become a SOWER of the SEED, a part of the FOURTH GROUP.  Do this NOW while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"God's Righteous Judgment"

 

“God’s Righteous Judgment”

 

Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you?  Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that His kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?  But because you are stubborn and refuse to turn from your sin, you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself.  For a day of anger is coming when God’s Righteous Judgment will be revealed.      Romans 2:4-5

 

There are MANY people who think they can avoid God’s judgment, when in all actuality they are doing the same things that others do. You can’t judge others, because of your race, position, or even your religious affiliation, in this life. In the end, each individual is JUDGED by the ALMIGHTY GOD, not by mankind.  We ALL sin and FALL SHORT of the Glory of God. But we are JUSTIFIED FREELY by His Grace through the REDEMPTION that came by Christ Jesus.  (Romans 3:23-24)

 

There are those who show CONTEMPT for the RICHES of God’s KINDNESS, FORBEARANCE, AND PATIENCE. God’s RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT is INESCAPABLE, unless you REPENT and are FORGIVEN.  Otherwise, you will find that your OWN DISOBEDIENCE and CONTEMPT for GOD’S GOODNESS will lead you to an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, once your there. 

 

The GOODNESS of GOD can lead to His JUDGMENT on FALLEN MANKIND, being delayed, in order to give them time to REPENT.  This is evidence of God’s GOODNESS, FORBEARANCE, and LONGSUFFERING.  The GOODNESS of God is exemplified by His PROVIDENCE, PROTECTION, AND PRESERVATION, all of which, leads to REPENTANCE, which is the ONE THING that God is wanting for ALL MANKIND.  He is PATIENT with you, not wanting ANYONE to PERISH, but EVERYONE to come to REPENTANCE. (2 Peter 3:9)    

 

REPENTANCE means that YOU are willing to TURN YOUR BACK on SIN, and to TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  And CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then you MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION and God’s GOODNESS.  And ESCAPE HIS WRATH, which will be poured out on those who have REJECTED Him and His Gift of SALVATION, at the GREAT WHITE THRONE of JUDGMENT.  Do this NOW, and ESCAPE HELL and GAIN HEAVEN, as your ETERNAL HOME.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"The Day is NEAR!"

 

“The Day is NEAR!”

 

And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the Day is at hand.    Romans 13:11 12a

 

This portion of the Apostle Paul’s letter, to the TRUE BELIEVERS in Rome is to ENCOURAGE them, at a time when SPIRITUAL ALERTNESS is PARAMOUNT.  And they SHOULD AWAKE out of their SLUMBER, and BE READY to meet the LORD JESUS, because the CULMINATION of their SALVATION was at hand. This means that, that DAY, which ALL TRUE BELIEVERS, are ANXIOUSLY WAITING for is CLOSE, and they NEED to be SPIRITUALLY ALERT because TIME IS SHORT! 

 

The Savior, Jesus Christ is READY and WILLING to COME and TAKE ALL God’s TRUE CHILDREN HOME, to the FATHER’S HOUSE.  This day and time in which we are living is like a NIGHT of SIN, that is on the brink of running its course.  And the TRUE BELIEVER is to CAST OFF the garments of DARKNESS, and to PUT ON the ARMOR of LIGHT, which is our PROTECTIVE garment for living a HOLY LIFE.  We are NOT to COMPROMISE are beliefs or to PARTAKE of the SINFUL acts of this LOST and DYING world.  A world with NO HOPE for ETERNITY.  We NEED to be STRONG and STEADFAST in our FAITH.  By being Children of the Light, we are to WALK or LIVE in the LIGHT.  The BEST THING we can do is to PUT ON JESUS CHRIST, that is;  to LIVE like He LIVED, and FOCUS on Him and His Lifestyle.  And do NOT INDULGE in the DESIRES of the FLESH, but SEPARATE yourself from this WORLD and its LOSTNESS.  The DAY is NEAR, are you READY for the RETURN of JESUS, to FINISH the SALVATION process, by the RAPTURE of GOD’S CHILDREN?

 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then your ETERNAL DESTINY, is NOT something you should be ANXIOUSLY AWAITING, because your ETERNAL DESTINY is HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there.  But this is NOT what GOD wants for YOU.  It is HIS DESIRE that NO ONE should PERISH, but that ALL would come to JESUS, His SON, for their SALVATION, and to do that:  You MUST TURN AWAY FROM your SINFUL lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  And you MUST ACCEPT God’s Gift of SALVATION, and become SPIRITUALLY ALERT, because the DAY is NEAR.  So, do this NOW, while you still can.   He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"Forgiveness Through Jesus"

 

“Forgiveness Through Jesus”

 

“Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.  Through Him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.     Acts 13:38-39

 

FORGIVENESS is a CRUCIAL part of the SALVATION experience.  The act of FORGIVENESS is GOD’S part of the SALVATION plan, and BELIEVING in JESUS CHRIST, and ACCEPTING Him into your HEART is YOUR part of the SALVATION PLAN.  God’s part included the substitutionary work of REDEMPTION, through the SACRIFICE of JESUS CHRIST, on an OLD RUGGED CROSS, and the MIRACULOUS work of God in the RESURRECTION of JESUS.  One cannot have SALVATION apart from this PLAN of SALVATION.

 

If they are NOT willing to BELIEVE and ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST as their SAVIOR and LORD, there is NO HOPE for them to be able to spend ALL their ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  And therefore, there is NO JUSTIFICATION.  JUSTIFICATION is the ACT of GOD in which, He DECLARES to be RIGHTEOUS, those SINNERS, who have BELIEVED and ACCEPTED Jesus as their SAVIOR and LORD.  It is a LEGAL act that takes place in the very MIND of the HOLY, RIGHTEOUS GOD, and it CLEARS, and gives FREEDOM FROM EVERY charge brought against the sinner who has become a TRUE BELIEVER.  Then they NOT ONLY RECEIVE FORGIVENESS of their SINS, but they NOW have the HOPE of an ETERNITY in HEAVEN.  Do you POSSESS His FORGIVENESS and His JUSTICE?  Or are you facing an ETERNAL DESTINY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE after you are there?

 

In order to receive God’s FORGIVENESS and His JUSTIFICATION, you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sins, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.   Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and be FORGIVEN and JUSTIFIED, along with the HOPE of HEAVEN as your ETERNAL HOME.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"Mercy and Grace"


“Mercy and Grace”

The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.  He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger forever.  He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities.    Psalm 103:8-10

The LORD’S greatness is evened out and driven by His goodness.  His MERCY: not treating SINFUL people with what they deserve, and His GRACE; treating them with what they don’t deserve.  These are attributes of His DIVINE NATURE and exemplifies His GREATNESS and His TENDENCY towards His act of FORGIVENESS.  Not stopping at JUSTICE, but pressing on to MERCY, GRACE and FORGIVENESS.  Even though sinful mankind does not DESERVE MERCY and GRACE, GOD provides it for them, if they will just SURRENDER to HIM. 

When they SURRENDER to HIM, they become RECIPIENTS of His DIVINE MERCY and GRACE.  Yet He will NOT ALWAYS STRIVE with mankind, meaning He will NOT ALWAYS CONTEND with them. And still He will not continually be ANGRY and RESENTFUL, which is the NATURE of HUMAN BEINGS.  Instead the LORD chooses to FREELY GIVE His MERCY and GRACE because of His COMPASSIONATE, MERCIFUL, LOVING NATURE.

God’s DIVINE GRACE triumphs over the PUNISHMENT that the sins of mankind deserve.  If God dealt with mankind’s sins only with JUSTICE, they would receive CONDEMNATION and PUNISHMENT, without any HOPE for FORGIVENESS and an ETERNITY in HEAVEN.  They would receive what they deserved (NO MERCY).  And would be caught in an IMPOSSIBLE SITUATION.  Where do you stand?  Have you RECEIVED God’s MERCY and GRACE? 

If you are still living a sinful lifestyle, then your ETERNAL DESTINY is HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there.  God is NOW offering you His MERCY and GRACE, along with His FORGIVENESS and an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. But you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU.  And that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION and be a RECIPIENT of His DIVINE MERCY and GRACE.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"The Compassionate Father"


“The Compassionate Father”

As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him; for He knows how we are formed, He remembers that we are dust.    Psalm 103:13-14

All who have children and grandchildren, can relate to this verse, as it speaks of having COMPASSION on their children.  We all, at one time or another, have had DEEP COMPASSION on our child because of something they have faced or are facing, and they are STRUGGLING with making the RIGHT DECISIONS, or maybe facing a difficult situation at school or at work.  Having COMPASSION on someone, means that you are TENDERHEARTED or you are having MERCY on your child.  Remember, MERCY is NOT RECEIVING what we DESERVE.  So, to have MERCY in the context of COMPASSION, it might mean that we are HOLDING BACK punishment, in order to let the situation, become a teaching moment.  And that is the way God is with HIS CHILDREN.  He is a COMPASSIONATE FATHER, who shows MERCY on His CHILDREN.

Because He is TENDERHEARTED, and LOVING, doesn’t mean that He will allow His Children to get by with living a sinful lifestyle.  He is HOLY and RIGHTEOUS, and will surely CORRECT His OWN. But He does take into consideration the fact that MANKIND is but DUST.  They are FRAIL, WEAK and UNLEARNED in the things of the HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, ALMIGHTY GOD, who created them.  Mankind’s life is like the grass and the flowers of the field, the wind blows over it and its gone. 

However, from EVERLASTING to EVERLASTING the LORD’S love is with those who HONOR and live in OBEDIENCE to Him.  And the ALMIGHTY GOD is FAITHFUL to His Children, by His COMPASSION.  It was because of His COMPASSION on MANKIND, that He gave His ONE and ONLY SON, JESUS CHRIST, to be the ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, by dying on an OLD RUGGED CROSS, for the SINS of ALL mankind, PAST, PRESENT, and FUTURE. And their SINS are REMOVED as far as the EAST is from the WEST.  And those who are the TRUE CHILDREN of the LIVING GOD, those who have given their HEART and LIFE to Him, will have HEAVEN with ALL its BLESSINGS as their ETERNAL HOME, ALL because of GOD’S COMPASSION on mankind. 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you will spend ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there.  In order to have HEAVEN as your ETERNAL HOME, you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and ALLOW HIM to be your COMPASSIONATE FATHER, who has UNFAILING LOVE for ALL of HIS CHILDREN.  Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"An URGENT Message!"


“An URGENT Message!”



“The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now He commands all people everywhere to repent, because He has fixed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by a Man whom He has appointed; and of this He has given assurance to all by raising Him from the dead.”     Acts 17:30-31



The TIMES of IGNORANCE were the times prior to the coming of JESUS as the SAVIOR of ALL mankind.  The Gentiles, (non-Jews) were, in many cases worshipers of idols, especially the Greeks.  The Apostle Paul was in the process of explaining the pitfalls of idol-worship and the BENEFITS of the WORSHIP of the ALMIGHTY GOD.  In these times of ignorance, God left the sins of mankind unpunished, He was patient with them, and they were given opportunities to BELIEVE in Him through their FAITH in Him.



But NOW, He COMMANDS ALL people EVERYWHERE to REPENT of their sins, by coming to the LORD JESUS CHRIST, by way of the CROSS of CALVARY, for the FORGIVENESS of their sins.  This is an URGENT MESSAGE, especially for those who have NOT given their HEART and LIFE to Him.  Because God has FIXED a DAY on which He will judge the world in RIGHTEOUSNESS.  And they will face JUDGMENT by a Man whom God has appointed, that Man, is the LORD JESUS CHRIST. We can be ASSURED that He is JUST and VERY WELL QUALIFIED to PASS JUDGMENT by the FACT of His RESURRECTION.



He is the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, and He will be FAIR and will JUDGE the world with JUSTICE.  He will bring CONDEMNATION and pass SENTENCE on those who have REJECTED Him and His gift of SALVATION.  They will be SENTENCED to an ETERNITY in HELL with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE after they are there.  However, GOD in His INFINITE MERCY has a plan to RESCUE them from that DESTINY.  But they MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM their sinful lifestyle, and to TURN to GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS their sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And they MUST BELIEVE, with ALL their HEART, that JESUS died for them, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for them, before God.  They MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and receive an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. So, HEED HIS URGENT WARNING: REPENT and BE SAVED!!  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"TRUST and NOT Afraid"


“TRUST and NOT Afraid”



Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.  The LORD, the LORD Himself, is my strength and my defense; He has become my salvation.   Isaiah 12:2



TRUST: Confidence, faith, dependence, assurance, and reliance in someone or something.



This message from the Prophet Isaiah, to God’s chosen nation of Israel, is as applicable to His CHOSEN CHILDREN, those who have given their HEART and LIFE to God for their SALVATION, today, as it was in the days of Isaiah.  We have a God we can TRUST, have CONFIDENCE, FAITH, DEPENDENCE, ASSURANCE, and RELIANCE in.  He is our ONLY HOPE for an ETERNITY in HEAVEN.



Therefore, we can put our TRUST in HIM and NOT BE AFRAID, because HE will be our STRENGTH and our DEFENSE.  But better yet, He is our SALVATION.  In Psalm 143:8, King David puts it this way: “Let the morning bring me word of Your UNFAILING LOVE, for I have put my TRUST in You.  Show me the way I should go, for to you I ENTRUST my LIFE.” This should be the PRAYER of EVERY TRUE BELIEVER.  That our TRUST in GOD would be SO STRONG and STEADFAST, that we would WILLINGLY ENTRUST Him with our LIFE, EVERY SINGLE MOMENT of EVERY DAY.  Are you doing that?



Why should we TRUST someone, we can’t even see, with the human eyes?  Psalm 9:10 has the answer:  Because, those who KNOW His Name TRUST in Him, for He, the LORD, has NEVER FORSAKEN those who SEEK Him.  Whenever you do this, He will give you a NEW SONG to sing, a hymn of PRAISE to our God.  And MANY will see what He has done and be AMAZED.  And they will put THEIR TRUST in the LORD.  (Psalm 40:3)



If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are NOT TRUSTING Him with your DESTINY, much less your daily life.  You are living DANGEROUSLY, putting your TRUST in a mere human being, even in yourself, because humans are SINFUL and they DON’T POSSESS the POWER or WISDOM to change your DESTINY or theirs. They are fallible and will give you a FALSE HOPE. And you will end up spending your ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY TO ESCAPE, after you are there. So, you NEED to TRUST in GOD and NOT be AFRAID.  To do that you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  And CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and TRUST HIM and DO NOT be AFRAID, because your DESTINY is an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"The Purpose of Grace"


“The Purpose of Grace”



God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were.  But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant.  So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.    Romans 5:20-21



Just what is GRACE:  GRACE is receiving what we don’t deserve.   Ever since Adam and Eve, mankind has had an appetite for sin, and that appetite has GROWN. Throughout the ages, mankind’s appetite for sin has not only become more and more abundant, but it seems to get more and more DEPRAVED, WICKED and PERVERTED.  It seems like MANKIND has the desire in them to BREAK the LAW, at any cost.  God gave Moses the TEN COMMANDMENTS for MANKIND to LIVE by, but I think that mankind is out to see how MANY of those laws they can BREAK.  They were given to MOSES to show the people just HOW SINFUL they were. 



Today, I would venture to say, a lot of people don’t even KNOW what the TEN COMMANDMENTS are, or what its PURPOSE is for.  But regardless the BEST PART is that, no matter HOW MUCH, a person SINS, GOD’S GRACE BOUNDS MUCH MORE!  Sin RULES over people and it brings a SPIRITUAL DEATH, meaning, if they continue to SIN, it will bring them an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after they are there.  They will be SEPARATED from GOD and ALL that is GOOD. This is the RESULT of LIVING a SINFUL LIFESTYLE.  Is this your DESTINY?



But God’s WONDERFUL, AMAZING GRACE, which RULES in the HEARTS of the TRUE BELIEVERS, brings SPIRITUAL LIFE, which is what we really DON’T DESERVE, but because of GOD’S GRACE, we can have an ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, because of our RIGHT RELATIONSHIP, with God, made possible through His ONLY SON, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, who gave HIS LIFE, for mankind, those who will ACCEPT GOD’S GRACE and SALVATION.  The PURPOSE of GRACE is to REIGN in the HEARTS of MANKIND and to BRING them ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN.  Is this your DESTINY?


If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then your DESTINY is an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE after you are there.  However, you can ESCAPE that DESTINY, by coming to God, and WILLINGLY TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and RECEIVE the PURPOSE of His AMAZING GRACE, an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"Hope for the Future"


“Hope for the Future”



“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Then you will call on Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”     Jeremiah 29:11-13



This Scripture, is without a doubt, my FAVORITE.  Just the thought that the ALMIGHTY GOD, has PLANS for ME.  Who am I that He would even give ME any consideration?  Well, I have the ASSURANCE that I am His Child, and being His Child, He wants the BEST for ME.  So, He has made PLANS for me.  Plans to PROSPE ME, and NOT to HARM ME, who doesn’t want their CHILDREN to PROSPER, and to NOT have HARM come their way?  God’s LOVE for His Children, is so much DEEPER, PURER and STRONGER, than what MANKIND’S LOVE is, and His Desire for His Children is to give them HOPE for their FUTURE, which includes their ETERNAL FUTURE. 



His PLANS include the PLAN of SALVATION.  God so LOVES MANKIND, that He has a plan to SAVE them from the PENALTY of their sins.  This plan, was that His ONE and ONLY SON, Jesus Christ, would GIVE His Life on an OLD RUGGED CROSS, to bring SALVATION to a LOST and DYING world, a CORRUPT, EVIL, DEPRAVED, world, that is without HOPE, a part from the CLEANSING POWER of JESUS CHRIST.  A world full of MANKIND, that is DOOMED and DESTINED for an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after they are there. 



However, if people will CALL on God, and PRAY to Him, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, He will LISTEN, and FORGIVE them, IF they will SEEK Him, with ALL THEIR HEART, they will FIND HIM.  And their DOOMED DESTINY will become a DESTINY of HOPE and PROSPERITY.  They will be able to ESCAPE HELL, and to GAIN HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  Which DESTINY is yours?  Are you LIVING a HOPELESS life of sin?



In order to have this HOPE for your FUTURE, you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM, your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  And CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and let Him give you HOPE for the FUTURE, especially, your ETERNAL FUTURE.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"The Blueprint of Redemption"


“The Blueprint of Redemption”



For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.  He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.  Through Him you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him and so your faith and hope are in God.     1 Peter 1:18-21



It is my hope that you will UNDERSTAND and FOLLOW this BLUEPRINT of GOD’S REDEMPTION for ALL of mankind.  This is a DETAILED PLAN of God’s REDEMPTIVE ACTION, which is His SALVATION PLAN for the RESCUE or SAVING of the SOUL of ALL mankind.  First, I want us to look at the PRICE that was PAID in FULL for this BLUEPRINT.  This PRICE was PAID to RESCUE the SOULS of MANKIND, with MORE than mere SILVER or GOLD, which is a PERISHABLE COMMODITY.  It was PURCHASED with the PRECIOUS BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST, the ONLY SON of the LIVING GOD. He was CHOSEN even BEFORE CREATION. And is the PERFECT SACRIFICAL LAMB, without BLEMISH or DEFECT.   



 Another aspect of this BLUEPRINT is that, He was NOT REVEALED to you, until these last times, this PRESENT AGE, for your sake.  He LIVED, DIED and was RESURRECTED and GLORIFIED in His ASCENSION, by the ALMIGHTY GOD, this process was carried out ALL for the REDEMPTION of a LOST and DYING WORLD, this includes YOU and ME, in order that WE and OTHERS may come to KNOW and to put our TRUST in GOD for our SALVATION, and to be able to spend our ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.



God, the ARCHITECT of this BLUEPRINT of REDEMPTION, has the ONLY PLAN for mankind to be able to be REDEEMED and to be able to spend their ETERNITY in HEAVEN, and to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there.  He wants to PREVENT YOU from that DESTINY.  To do that you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  And CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT this BLUEPRINT of REDEMPTION, and receive an ETERNAL HOME in HEAVEN, by PLACING your FAITH and HOPE in GOD.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"Inexpressible and Glorious Joy!"


“Inexpressible and Glorious Joy!”



Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.      1 Peter 1:8-9



There is an EXPERIENTIAL JOY that comes from BLIND FAITH.  That is NOT SEEING, but LOVING and BELIEVING in Christ Jesus.  Hebrews 11:1 says: “Now FAITH is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.”  We have the HOPE of our SALVATION, because of our FAITH in JESUS CHRIST, who we have NOT SEEN, but yet, we BELIEVE.  In John 20:29, Jesus said, to Thomas, who had his doubts.  “Thomas, because you HAVE SEEN Me, you have BELIEVED.  Blessed ARE those who have NOT SEEN and YET they have BELIEVED.” 



The TRUE BELIEVER, TODAY, even though they do NOT see JESUS CHRIST, they BELIEVE and LOVE Him.  And this brings INEXPRESSIBLE JOY, to their HEARTS, because their FAITH tells them that it is FOR SURE a REAL THING, and they are RECEIVING SALVATION, that which was PROMISED and FULFILLED in the WORK of CHRIST on the Cross, and it is a CONTINUING situation.  It is a PAST, PRESENT, and FUTURE INHERITANCE, which will be fully REVEALED in the Last Time.  And each day, brings us CLOSER to that FINAL DAY, when our SALVATION will be COMPLETE. 



Even in DIFFICULT times, when there seems to be NO WAY out, GOD provides a WAY, and has already, through His Son, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, who is, HIMSELF, the WAY.  This KNOWLEDGE, should bring the TRUE BELIEVER, INEXPRESSIBLE and GLORIOUS JOY!!!  



 But for the UNBELIEVER, the one, who has NOT given their HEART and LIFE to God, they should be very FEARFUL of their DESTINY, which is an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after they are there. 



If this is your plight, you have the opportunity NOW, to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then you MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and RECEIVE an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  And experience that INEXPRESSIBLE and GLORIOUS JOY.   Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"Close at Hand"

“Close at Hand”

 

This is what the LORD says: “Maintain justice and do what is right, for My Salvation is close at hand, and My Righteousness will soon be revealed.  Blessed is the one who does this---the person who holds it fast, who keeps the Sabbath without desecrating it, and keeps their hands from doing any evil.”     Isaiah 56:1-2

 

There are certain things that God requires of His Children, those who have truly given their HEART and LIFE to Him.  One of those things is to MAINTAIN JUSTICE, this means to KEEP one’s MORAL RIGHTNESS, for the TRUE BELIEVER, it means to LIVE by FAITH, and NOT by the FLESH.  This message from God, was for the very devout Jew, those who lived according to GOD’S LAW. However, it stands TRUE for EVERY TRUE BELIEVER, who has embraced God’s Gift of SALVATION, through His Son Jesus Christ.  They are to MAINTAIN JUSTICE also, and do what is RIGHT in the Eyes of a HOLY, RIGHTEOUS GOD. 

 

The ones, who will ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST, as their SAVIOR and LORD, are the ones who will reap the BENEFITS of God’s SALVATION.  That is, they will experience what SALVATION is ALL about:  SPIRITUAL DELIVERANCE from their SINFUL LIFESTYLE, which is dragging them into the pits of HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, for ALL of ETERNITY.  But along with the SPIRITUAL DELIVERANCE from their SINS, they will be able to ESCAPE HELL, and GAIN HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS for ALL of ETERNITY.   This act of SALVATION will be COMPLETED at the time of the RAPTURE.  Those who have SALVATION, experiences, first, being DELIVERED from their SINS.  Secondly, they have VICTORY over their SINS, daily.  And third, is the COMPLETION of their SALVATION, when they are taken to their ETERNAL HOME, HEAVEN, where there is NO MORE SIN.  And the LORD says, this is CLOSE at HAND!

 

And at that time, they will experience the FULL IMPACT of GOD RIGHTEOUSNESS.  He tells us that those who HOLDS FAST to their SALVATION, and doesn’t take it lightly, but will HONOR their times of WORSHIP, for the GENTILE BELIEVERS, that is on the FIRST DAY of the WEEK, SUNDAY.  For the JEWS it is called the SABBATH.  Sunday, is set aside for MEETING TOGETHER, WORSHIPING TOGETHER, and FELLOWSHIPING TOGETHER, as the TRUE CHILDREN of GOD. And, all the more, ENCOURAGING each other as we SEE the DAY of the LORD approaching.  (Heb. 10:25).  And we are to KEEP our HANDS from doing ANY EVIL.    REMEMBER, the COMPLETION of our SALVATION is CLOSE at HAND!  Are you READY?

 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, then you are destined to spend ALL of ETERNITY in HELL, with NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there.  In order to KEEP from going to HELL, you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and to TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and RECEIVE an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, all of which is, CLOSE at HAND.  So, do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"He is FAITHFUL, Are You?"


“He is FAITHFUL, Are You?”



Let us hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.  And let us be concerned about one another in order to promote love and good works, not staying away from our worship meetings, as some habitually do, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.     Hebrews 10:23-25



In the life of the TRUE BELIEVER, we MUST HOLD ON to the confession of our HOPE, and we SHOULD do this WITHOUT WAVERING.  This means that NOTHING should TURN us AWAY FROM our STEADFAST CONFESSION, that our ONLY HOPE lies in JESUS CHRIST.  The ONE who is FAITHFUL to do ALL that He has PROMISED.  The ONE who has SAVED us from an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there.  The ONE, who was FAITHFUL to the task of giving up His life in order to SAVE those who would BELIEVE, and ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION.  He died for ALL, but ALL has not and will not RECEVIE Him as their SAVIOR and LORD.  Some are WILLING to let their PROMISED blessings, slip through their finger-tips.  Are you one of those?



The TRUE BELIEVER, should be FAITHFUL in their SERVICE to God and His Son, Jesus Christ.  They should be FAITHFUL in ENCOURAGING one another by promoting LOVE and GOOD WORKS, these things are evidences of their FAITH.  And the TRUE BELIEVER, should ENCOURAGE others to ATTEND their worship services, REGULARLY, with JOY and LOVE, and NOT to SLACK-OFF their attendance.  But they SHOULD be FAITHFUL to their CHURCH FAMILY by MEETING together, because there is STRENGTH in numbers, and if you LOVE each other the way GOD EXPECTS you to, you SHOULD WANT to be with each other.  I know that there can be certain circumstances that prevents this, such as: ILLNESS, being HOMEBOUND, and other things that would hinder your attendance.  But there are those who STAY AWAY, when they COULD BE there.  Their LOVE and FAITHFULNESS wanes COLD, and they put at RISK their UNSEEN, FUTURE BLESSINGS. 



Our FAITHFULNESS SHOULD BE STEADFAST, and all the MORE SO, as we SEE the DAY of the LORD approaching.  If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, you are destined to spend your ETERNITY in HELL, unless you are WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  And CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then you MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and BE FAITHFUL to Him, and SERVE HIM, HOLDING STEADFASTLY to the HOPE you have in JESUS CHRIST, because HE IS FAITHFUL!  So, do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!

"TRUST in the LORD!"


“TRUST in the LORD!”



You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.  Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an Everlasting Rock.      Isaiah 26:3-4



We live in UNCERTAIN, UNPRECEDENTED, times, times that DEFINITELY tries mankind’s soul.  And gives us reasons to question: “How LONG Lord, do we have to WAIT?”  We are living on God’s time, and He is in CONTROL of OUR DESTINY, the DESTINY of our GREAT NATION, and the DESTINY of this SIN-CORRUPTED WORLD. 



The verses, today, are MUCH NEEDED, especially for the TRUE BELIEVER, they remind us of our HOPE in our SALVATION, which is made possible through the SACRIFICE of GOD’S ONLY SON, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, the ONLY ONE, who was WORTHY to SAVE MANKIND of their sins, and to bring them into a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with the ALMIGHTY GOD.  HE is our ROCK and our REDEEMER.  And ONLY through HIM can we experience PERFECT PEACE.  This happens when one’s mind, or thoughts are FIXED on God.  And when you put your FULL TRUST in Him.



The Prophet Isaiah tells us that we SHOULD TRUST IN the LORD ALWAYS, because He, the LORD GOD, IS the ETERNAL ROCK. Or you could say: “He is our ETERNAL STRENGTH!”  And in Psalm 61:3, we are told: “You have been my REFUGE, a STRONG TOWER against the ENEMY.”  And in Proverbs 18:10: “The NAME of the LORD is a STRONG TOWER; the RIGHTEOUS PERSON, runs into it and is SAFE.”  These are pretty good reasons to TRUST in the LORD GOD AWAYS.  A lot of times we find ourselves in situations, in which we have NO CONTROL, and if you are a TRUE BELIEVER, you can have the BLESSED ASSURANCE, that GOD is in CONTROL.  And He IS our ROCK ETERNAL, our REFUGE, and our STRONG and MIGHTY TOWER, which we can RUN to and find that PERFECT PEACE. 



So, if you have NOT SINCERELY, given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, then your DESTINY is going to be an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you’re there.  However, God wants to be your ROCK ETERNAL, and your STRONG TOWER of REFUGE, if you are WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  And CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and TRUST the LORD GOD ALWAYS, and with ALL your HEART.  And face EACH DAY with PERFECT PEACE, knowing that GOD IS in CONTROL of your DESTINY.  So, do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
