Repent and Believe the Gospel!


REPENT AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL!
Jesus said,"The time is fullfilled and the Kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe the Gospel"
The Gospel is that the Word of God became a man; Jesus, the only begotten of the Father, the Son of God, full of grace and truth, and lived in this world with every temptation that you and I face, and yet He never sinned and He gave himself to die on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. God made Him who knew no sin to become sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. He was buried in a tomb, and on the third day the Father raised Him from the dead. He was seen of above 500 witnesses after He arose and He ascended to the right hand of the Father in heaven. He is there right now, alive, making intercession on our behalf to the Father. He is coming again with all the saints and all the angels in great power and glory and all who live and believe in him will be united with him and thus will we ever be with the Lord. I urge you to seek Him now, during this time while the long suffering of God is waiting, for the Day of the Lord is coming soon. He loves you and He will save you to the utter most if you will put your trust in Him.

Look Up Unto Jesus !

Mat 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single,thy whole body shall be full of light. Mat 6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Is your eye single? Or is it evil? Jesus said, Joh 8:12 I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. In Joh 9:5 As long as I am in the world,I am the light of the world. Joh 11:9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. Joh 11:10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him. 
Are you looking only to Jesus or are you also looking at the things of the world, the darkness that is n the world, the pleasures and lusts of the flesh, the cares of this life. As the world is being shaken by this plague, are you being shaken? The Prophet Isaiah said, Isa 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isa 26:4 Trust ye in the LORD forever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
God knows if we are truly trusting in Him,
Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down t the right hand of the throne of God.
Brother, Sister, don't let your heart be troubled, you believe in God , believe also in Him! Look up unto Him, cast all your care upon Him, as you do His light will shine on you, and in you and drive out whatever darkness remains in you. And you will have His peace, the peace that passes all understanding. If He shows you some sin, confess it to Him. He has promised to forgive you and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness 1Joh 1:5-10 .This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
Let His Word wash you and cleanse you. Be about purifying your souls by obeying the truth through the Spirit. Get ready to meet our Lord and Master, for He truly is coming soon. And as you are cleansed, His light will shine through you in this dark world, and people will be drawn to you to give them an answer for the hope that is in you, even as the whole world is being shaken.
Heb 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, Heb 12:23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, Heb 12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Heb 12:25 See that ye refuse
not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Heb 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. Heb 12:27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Heb 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
Heb 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Today is Another Day of Prayer

2Ch 7:13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
I am speaking this morning to you who are a part of the Church of Jesus Christ in America and around the world who are called by His name. God has sent this plague into the world.
He is watching us right now . He is looking to see what His people will do, if we will humble ourselves, and pray, and seek His face. He is also watching to see if we will turn, or repent, from our wicked ways, from our pride, from our rebellion against our Lord, from our adulteries and fornications and our idolatries our lying and stealing.If we will fulfill His conditions, then He will turn and repent from the evil that He is bringing upon us, just as in the days when He sent Jonah to the city of Nineveh, and He will heal our lands. If we will not repent then He will not and we are in grave danger of ending up amoung those who in the day of Jesus Christ will be saying "Lord,Lord..." and He will say to us "Depart from me, I never knew you, you who work iniquity!"

Steak to Manna


Mat 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
Mat 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
This promise is to all of God's children for all time and eternity. It will never change, as long as we will continue seeking His kingdom and His righteousness, He will always provide for our needs. We don't need to be afraid of a shortage. Consider the way He led the Children of Israel in the wilderness; they went from steak and salad in Egypt to the Sinai wilderness , where there was no food and many times no water, to prove His people.
However, He took care of all their needs.
He gave them manna from heaven, angel's bread. He brought cool clear water from a rock. He brought in quail when they wanted meat. Their shoes never wore out. Their clothes never wore out. They had all they needed but some murmured and complained and God was not pleased with them.
So they went through great trials in the wilderness but God brought them into their land in due time and gave them great abundance of all things.

So when we are going through these trials as we are now we need to have patience and self control and trust our God completely and be willing to eat manna for a while without complaining, if that be His will, because if we will remain faithful to Him, even unto death, Jesus has promised He has prepared a place for us, and the glory is great. The things that God has prepared for those that love Him have not even entered into the heart of man.

Gross Darkness Covers the People

Here in is the way given to us that we may overcome in this dark hour. Isa 60:2  For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. Gross darkness is truly covering the earth and the people, and it will continue to grow darker as we approach the end of this age. We are presently in the great falling away in the Church of Jesus Christ, and according to 2Thess 2:3&4, we will soon see the man of sin, The Antichrist, be revealed and great tribulation such as never before will come upon the whole earth. 2Th 2:3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2Th 2:4  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Mat 24:15  When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Mat 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. So what can we do in this hour? We must not be as Lot in the days of Sodom whose righteous soul was vexed every day by the things which he saw and heard. Truly, as Jesus said it would be in the time of the end, it is like the days of Sodom, and like the days of Noah. The earth is filled with violence. We, as believers in Christ, must look up unto Him, Heb 12:2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. And as we do,continuing in His Word, His light will shine in us and through us in this dark world.1Jn 1:5  This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 1Jn 1:6  If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 1Jn 1:7  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. Also we must:Php 4:6  Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Php 4:7  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Php 4:8  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Grit and Grace

From Webster's: Grit: Stubborn courage, determination
Grace: Beauty or charm of form, movement or expression, good will, favor, the love and favor of God toward man
There is a man who is the embodiment of true grit and true grace. You may be thinking of John Wayne,
but that's not who I'm thinking of. I know a little about John Wayne, but I know much more about another man who was facing incredible torture, oppression, abuse and death in the path that was laid out for him, yet he knew it was the way he had to go, the will of his Father. So he set his face like a flint to go to that place, and to give himself to that suffering, that he might accomplish a great salvation for many people.
And here in is the grace: His Father so loved those people that he gave his only beloved son to endure this suffering for them, even unto death, that they might live and join him in his heavenly kingdom.
One thing I believe about John Wayne; near the end of his life he met this man and experienced his wonderful grace. The man of whom I speak is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and you can know Him too.Jesus said, "Come unto me all you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest, take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly of heart and you shall find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
