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.

The Comforter

Jesus called the Holy Spirit the Comforter. Everything God does He does with His Word, by His Holy Spirit. If you look in Genesis 1:2&3 you see the Spirit moving and then God spoke and it was! It is the same all through the scriptures. He gives the Holy Spirit to them that obey Him. That is why I have been stressing how important it is to come to Jesus with all your heart and know Him. He will comfort you by His Spirit. Religion is there to convince us that we know him and we have the Holy Spirit and we believe and we are justified and we don't need to change, when actually we are blind and poor and miserable and wretched and too prideful to admit it. God grants His grace to the humble. It is a daily walk of repentance and believing the Gospel, and seeking Him. He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. When the Father raised His Son from the dead, He raised you with Him!
In Luke 11:13 Jesus said, If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? He said ask and you shall receive, seek and you will find, knock and it shall be opened.
If you are in the midst of a great trial of your faith, it is for your good, for your perfection. Jesus changes us by breaking us. As you continue to trust Him He will bring you through this. He never intended for us to walk as a Christian without the Comforter. So seek after the fullness of His Spirit coming upon you and filling you with His Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness peace and joy in the Holy Ghost! The Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power!

Loneliness ?

Loneliness is a work of our flesh. When you know and love the Lord Jesus Christ, and trust Him with all your heart, you will never be lonely. We need to repent fully of all sin and unrighteousness and devote ourselves completely to Him. Jesus said, Deny yourself, take up your cross , and follow me, (Jesus), every day.The cross is an instrument of death. It is the will of the Father that we die with Him, being baptized into His death, and raised with Him to serve Him and not ourselves. As you walk with Him in this way He will gently lead you in righteous paths to expose things in you that He wants to deliver you from, and as you continue in submission to Him, walking in His Word, He will set you free. True freedom is only in Jesus, in total devotion to Him and obedience to His will for your life, daily. His mercies are new every morning! This is walking in the light. He is the light. He said in Joh 8:31 If ye continue in my Word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Also in 1John1:7, 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 cleanses 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. As you walk with Him daily and He by His Spirit shows you something wrong, or your conscience pricks you about something, you go to Him and repent with all your heart. He forgives you because of His sacrifice on the cross, because He was made sin for you that you might be made the righteousness of God in Him, and His shed blood, through faith in His blood, cleanses you from all sin and unrighteousness, and you walk on in righteousness with Him, keeping your conscience clear of offence toward God and man. This is how we are to walk, filled with the Holy Ghost. You need to be baptized in the Holy Spirit to walk this way. Jesus said to his disciples before He left to go be with the Father, I will not leave you comfortless, when I go to be with the Father I will send the Holy Spirit and He will be with you forever. Jesus said in Luk 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? This is Christianity. Religion is false. It gives you false hope and false security that you might be destroyed. It is only the mercies of God that we escape it.

Now is the Time

Turn to the Lord with all your heart. Now is the time. Behold now is the hour. He is surely coming soon, and what will you do when you see Him? Will you cower in shame or will you rejoice and be glad with confidence before Him? You are making choices right now. Jesus said to Nicodemus in John chapter 3, God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the World through Him might be saved. The only way you are going to be saved is through Him. You say,"Saved from what?" From the wrath of God to come. He that believes on Him is not condemned; but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. Is that you? Do you have evil deeds that you love? Be honest with yourself. Are there things you feel you just can't do with out? You say "I've heard John3:16 all my life....." When was the last time you really meditated on what Jesus is saying here? Do you truely believe He is the only begotten Son of God? In John1 the Apostle John said He is the Word of God and that He was made flesh. The angel Gabriel said to Mary, "The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. " The Bible says He was tempted in every way as we are yet He never sinned. He willingly gave himself a living sacrifice for our sins. He became sin on the cross and suffered the full penalty for us which is death and hell . Why? Because He so loves us! He does not want us do be destroyed. He made us. When we reject Him we condemn ourselves to destruction. On the third day the Father, by the power of the Holy Spirit, raised Him from the dead. The scripture says we are dead in our trespasses and sins and we were made alive in Him. When the Father raised Him up, He raised us with Him. But you have to join Him in His death by repenting and believing and being baptized in water, buried with Him in baptizm, and raised with Him to serve Him in newness of life, not yourself any longer. Did you ever wonder what Jesus meant when He said he that finds his life shall lose it, but he that loses his life for my sake shall find it? Jesus also said in John 3; He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him. The only way that you can be saved from the wrath of God is to turn to Jesus with all your heart, repent of your ways and put all your trust in Him.
Don't kid yourself any more. Spend some time thinking on what the Word of God says. The wrath of God , the Day of His wrath is surely coming, against all ungodliness and all the ungodly. All the wicked are going to be destroyed forever. Only those who are righteous by believing and obeying Jesus, as He said in Mat 7, only those who are doing the will of the Father, will live on with Him in His kingdom. Are you righteous or are you wicked? The Apostle John said, Little children, let no man deceive you: he that does righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that commits sin, (practices or continues in sin), is of the devil; for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Repent now while you have the time.
This time right now is the time the Apostle Peter refered to like the days of Noah: the longsuffering of God was waiting, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and then the flood came and destroyed them all. He said ,in 2Peter:3, The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
Turn to the Lord with all your heart. Now is the time.
