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.

Are You Sent ?


How shall they believe unless they hear? How shall they hear without a preacher? How shall they preach unless they are sent? Romans 10
You are preaching and teaching. Did the Holy Ghost send you as He sent Paul and Barnabas
In Acts 13:2 "separate unto me Barnabas and Saul for the work I've called them to" It says that the other disciples fasted and prayed and laid hands on them and commended them unto the work. They were sent by God. They went in His authority and great things happened that are still affecting many people's lives. If God did not send you you have no authority to be preaching. You are in the flesh and the words you speak do not profit anyone. Repent and give yourself to Him anew to do what ever He commands you. He may have you work as a janitor cleaning toilets for a year or so. Are you willing?
If you are a woman He did not ever send you or give you authority to lead and teach men.
1Tim 2:12 If all of us will submit to His Word and obey Him and love Him and seek only His will in our lives we will truly see great things. If we will not obey Him we will not.

God is a Rewarder


God is a rewarder who will render to every man according to their works, both in this life and in the judgement to come. He does not sit idly by while the children of men do what ever they please, whether good or evil, but rather He is intimately involved with all the affairs of men, and His eyes run to and fro in all the earth to show Himself strong on behalf of them who's heart is perfect toward Him. 2Ch 6:30 Then hear thou from Heaven, thy dwelling place, and forgive, and render unto every man according unto all his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou only knowest the hearts of the children of men.) Rom 2 : 4-11, Or despisest thou the riches of His goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgement of God;
who will render unto every man according to his deeds: to them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory, and honor, and immortality, eternal life; But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the gentile; but glory, honor, and peace to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first and also to the Gentile, for there is no respect of persons with God.
Heb 11:6 ... for He that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarded of them that diligently seek Him.

The Gospel


The Gospel means "The Good News". What good news? God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Who is He? His name is Jesus. He is the Son of God. He willingly came to Earth from Heaven. He was born of the Virgin Mary. He became a man like us. He had a body like us, but He was the Son of God. He was born holy! The scripture says He was tempted in every way like us, yet He never sinned. He went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the Devil. Yet the religious leaders and many of the people hated Him and condemned Him to death by crucifixion. However, it was the will of the Father for Him to willingly give Himself on the cross a living sacrifice for our sins. Because He knew no sin, when his blood was shed it completely satisfied the Father in heaven for all our sins.The scripture says the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus. He was buried in a tomb, and on the third day the Father raised Him from the dead by His mighty power. Jesus is the first begotten from the dead.
We are dead in our trespasses and sins. We must repent of our sins and believe the Gospel, calling on the Lord, and be baptized,
baptized into His death, our old sin nature is buried with Him, and we are raised with him, justified from all things. We become the righteousness of God in Him! We must receive the Holy Spirit and be led by Him to do the will of God from the heart. Jesus said in John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another helper, that he may abide with you forever- the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
Jesus said take up your cross daily and follow Him. You must receive the Holy Spirit so you can be led by Him. The Holy Spirit will never lead you to sin. So as you continue to believe the Gospel, believing that you are dead to sin in Him, as you were baptized into His death, and you are alive unto God in Him through His resurrection, you will be led by the Holy Spirit to follow Jesus and do the will of the Father from your heart, you will be walking in righteousness by faith, pleasing God! If you sin, you can confess your sin to Him, and His blood that he shed on the cross, faith in His blood, justifies you before the Father, just as though you had never sinned. You will be saved from the wrath of God to come, if you continue in Him. You will be delivered from everything that hinders you. He overcame death and sin and all the powers of darkness when he rose from that grave! He appeared to His disciples several times afterwards for a period of 40 days before He ascended to heaven to the right hand of God, where He is right now, making intersession for us. He is alive! He will save you completely if you will come to Him and give yourself completely to Him. Jesus said "Repent and believe the Gospel, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand".

Please Consider


Your life is as a vapor. At any moment you could die from any number of causes. Then, immediately you are in eternity. Where will you go? Please think very seriously about it starting right now. Know this, it is only the mercy of God that any one of us is not dead and burning in hell right now. You may think I'm exaggerating but I'm dead serious. If you do not have faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, who gave himself for your sins, if you have not repented and confessed Him as your Lord, you are still in your sins, and if you were to die now, you would go straight to the pit, to be tormented day and night for ever and ever, where the fire is not quenched and the worm never dies. Jesus said that three times in a row when He was warning us of hell. In Him is eternal life. If you have Him, you have the life, but if you don't, you are dead in your sins. Remember, He loved us so much, that He washed us from our sins in His own blood, and then He overcame death and hell when He rose from the grave, that you and I might live for ever with Him in His glorious kingdom. Repent now, while you still have breath, and call upon Him and you shall be saved from the wrath of God to come, and you shall inherit eternal life. There is nothing what so ever about this life that is worth spending eternity in torment for.

A True Offering


Malachi 1:6-8 KJV
[6] A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name? [7] Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the Lord is contemptible. [8] And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the Lord of hosts.
Malachi 1:13-14 KJV
[13] Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness is it ! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the Lord of hosts; and ye brought that which was torn, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye brought an offering: should I accept this of your hand? saith the Lord . [14] But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the Lord of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the heathen.
Our offering of praise to our great God, our great King must be a pure offering, a song of His Word given and ministered by the Holy Spirit by people walking in His righteousness, walking in faith working by love, loving Him, walking in His Word.
Jesus said in John 4 to the woman at the well, God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth; the Word of God with the Holy Spirit. The song must be of the Word, given and ministered by the Spirit. He said the Father is seeking such to worship Him .
In 1John the Apostle John says, Truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son
1 John 1:1-7 KJV
[1] That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; [2] (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it , and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) [3] That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. [4] And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. [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. [6] If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: [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.
When we come to God with a pure offering of true praise by the Word of God and the Holy Ghost, He will inhabit our praise and we will have fellowship through the Spirit with the Father and with His Son, and if we are walking in the light ( the truth) with one another.
If we have sin we can go to the Father in Jesus name and repent and confess our sin and He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Then we can walk on in the light and have true worship and true fellowship.
If we are embracing false doctrine and singing songs in the flesh it will not work. God will not confirm that. It is a polluted offering.

Authority


What we don't understand, because we are so used to being in rebellion against God, is His authority and how it works, only according to His will, which is revealed in His Word, and that if we will humble ourselves and love Him and submit to and continue in His will we will truly be liberated. So often it comes back to this that Jesus said: If you will continue in my Word, then you will be my disciples indeed, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. We think rebellion is freedom and submission to God and His authority is bondage. That is deceit taught to us by the chief rebel himself.Truly it is quite the opposite. Jesus said, If you love me, keep my commandments.
2Ch 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.
As we truly love and submit to Him, to all His counsel, and fear Him, He will take notice, and He will bless us and deliver us and establish us in His will and kingdom. Listen; Jesus is our King. He is totally in charge. Those who will do His will as it is revealed in all His Word, will reign with Him when He returns to establish His kingdom on the Earth. Those who refuse, and embrace deceit to continue in rebellion will not.
I know what I'm saying is the truth by experience. I have been very rebellious all my life, even after being saved. As Jesus has led me in His great love and mercy in paths of righteousness to break me, I have learned , and am learning obedience, and he has blessed me so much there by. My rebellion brought me so much torment and sorrow, but as He has freed me more and more to obey Him, I have more and more righteousness, peace, and joy, more and more steadiness and fruitfulness.
Ask, seek and knock. You must ask Him to do this in your life. You must want this and seek Him with all your heart, and when you do you will find Him.
For example:
When a woman takes a position to preach and teach women and men, contrary to God's Word and will for women, she is in rebellion. She is not sent by Him and she has no authority to do so. The people will be brought into bondage. The elders also that gave her her position will be judged.
1Ti 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. That phrase "usurp authority over" means to act of oneself, dominate.See Rev 2:18-29
Same thing for a man who takes a position that God did not give him.He is also usurping authority. But, as a man walks in obedience and allows God to prepare him and send him where He wills, then he will be walking in God's authority and He will work through him as he continues in full submission to His will and His Word. Also, the people he is sent to will be blessed.
Mat 8:5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
Mat 8:6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.
Mat 8:7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
Mat 8:8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.
Mat 8:9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
Mat 8:10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
Mat 8:11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 8:12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 8:13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.
The centurion believed that Jesus had authority and what He spoke would come to pass. He understood how authority works. He was under authority, and when he spoke to those under him, they obeyed. Jesus only did what he saw the Father doing, and He only said what He heard the Father saying. He walked in complete submission to the Father and He always did His will, even to the death of the cross.
Jesus said in Matt 7:21, Not everyone that says unto me Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but they that do the will of my Father which is in Heaven. The scripture says, they that are led by the Holy Spirit are the sons of God. The Spirit of God will always be leading you to do the will of the Father, and as you go where He sends you and speak the words He gives you it will be life to those who have a heart, and ears to hear what He is saying.
Deceivers work to convince you that they have authority from God that they really don't have. He didn't send them. What they have is the Devil and his power working through them. As a person continues in rebellion they will be controlled by the Devil. When by God's grace and mercy they are led to repentance, and truly submit to the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word, they will be set free to obey Him and be blessed. Don't be deceived because they speak the Word of God (sheep's clothing). They are wolves and they will devour you if you submit to them. This too I have learned by experience. Come out from among them and be blessed.

Brothers

1John 2:9-11:
He that loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no occasion of stumbling in him. 
But he that hates his brother is in darkness, and is walking in darkness,
and doesn’t know where he is going, because that darkness has blinded his eyes.
He that says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness even until now
Behold how good and pleasant it is for brothers to live together
Behold how good and pleasant it is for brothers to dwell in unity
It’s like the oil poured on the head
Running down Aaron’s beard
Down upon collars of his robes
It’s like the dew of Mount Hermon
Falling down upon Mount Zion
For there the Lord commands the blessing
Life forever more
And this is revealed in the righteousness of God in Christ
This is fullfilled in the righteousness of God in Christ
