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.

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.

The pestilence is still here, and has caused great death and suffering and economic destruction world wide. The locusts are here now and are multiplying greatly in the Middle East and Asia.
What are we, the people who are called by the name of the Lord Jesus Christ doing ? Have we humbled ourselves? Are we praying and seeking His face? Have we, are we turning from our wicked ways ?
God is watching us. It is on us to respond according to these words that He may turn and repent from the evil which He is sending upon the World for our great sins.

Many people think this way: Jesus was the Son of God, and because He was God He was well able to not sin, walk on water, etc. NOT SO!! He was and is surely God, but he became a man, and He was tempted in His flesh just as we are, and it was a great conflict and travail that He endured to overcome the world, sin,and the devil. Remember it says that angels came and ministered to Him after He went through the trials in the wilderness, fasting for 40 days, tempted of the Devil. When the Devil was talking to Him it was not just an exchange of words, it was a battle. The devil was moving in the power of darkness and speaking words with seducing spirits, and Jesus overcame Him by continuing to rely on and speak the written Word of God to him with the power of the Holy Spirit. After it was over He needed to be comforted and strengthened by those angels of God. He continued walking in the power of the Spirit , preaching the Gospel and working miracles, and He was continuing to be tempted and attacked by the powers of darkness and wicked men. The ulitimate travail came on the cross, where He loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood. In Isaiah it says that the Father saw the travail of His soul and was satisfied. No, Jesus labored and travailed for us because of His great love for the Father and for us. Here in is love; not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation (satisfying agent) for our sins. And, because He humbled himself unto the brutal death of the cross, God hath highly exhalted Him, and given Him a name which is above EVERY NAME, that at the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow, in heaven , on the earth, and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father! Halleluia!!

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!"
