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.

"Lord, Lord"

Luk 6:46  And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?  If Jesus is truly your Lord and master, He is just that. You belong to Him. You have been bought with a price. He said if any man will follow Him let him deny himself every day, take up his cross and follow Him. You must be led by His Holy Spirit to put to death the deeds of your body and keep His Words. Man shall not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God. The Word of God spoken to you by the Holy Spirit is life. Rom 8:13 says, If you live after the flesh you shall die; but if you through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body you shall live. Satan says :"Did God say that? You wont die. You're justified once and forever." Jesus says, "If you continue in my Word you will be my disciple indeed and you will know the truth and the truth will make you free." The Holy Spirit will lead you in paths of righteousness to do His Word and to sanctify you by His truth. His Word is truth. He will wash you in the water of the Word and build His kingdom in you and you will be delivered from the things that hinder you as you continue with Him, denying yourself every day, taking up your cross and following Jesus to do the will of the Father from the heart. Continuing is not just reading and studying, but also following the Lord as He leads you by His Spirit in paths of righteousness for His Name's sake to expose your fleshly deeds and lead you to repentance and cleanse you of all unrighteousness, more and more each day, leading you into situations for you to learn obedience to His Word, and as you continue in it, it becomes a part of your very being, His Kingdom is being built in you, and more and more you are being conformed to the image of His Son. Remember, Jesus is coming back for a spotless bride, a holy people, seperated unto Him, sanctified by His truth.
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.
1Jn 1:8  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1Jn 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1Jn 1:10  If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
Don't be deceived; if you live after the flesh you will die. He's not coming back for a bunch of rebellious people calling Him "Lord, Lord" He said in Matt 7  Not everyone who says to me "Lord, Lord" is going into the Kingdom of Heaven, but they that do the will of my Father in heaven.
Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and he will lift you up. Be honest with yourself and Him and let Him lead you in righteous paths to sanctify you with His Word by His Spirit.
There is no way you can do this without being baptized in the Holy Spirit. You must be baptized in the Spirit to be led by the Spirit. He is the earnest of our inheritance. Don't let the Devil and wicked unbelieving people cheat you out of your full inheritance and blessing in the Lord.
Luk 6:47  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
Luk 6:48  He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
Luk 6:49  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

Consider This:

The One, bless His Holy Name, who was and is and is to come, the Almighty God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
through Him and by His Holy Spirit, has moved upon His servants Moses, Joshua, David, Samuel, Isaiah, and all the prophets,
Matthew, Mark, Luke, Peter, John, and Paul, and many others, to write His Words and to put them together, over time, into a book,
and preserve it and publish it through out all the world, that all the world through His Word, as He wills and reveals it to those whom He has chosen
unto eternal life, might be saved, and delivered, and changed, and from faith to faith, conformed into the image of His Son Jesus Christ, who fullfilled His Word in the time appointed by the Father, and gave Himself a living sacrifice for our sins, and rose again from the dead. Jesus said, "Father, sanctify them through thy Truth, Thy Word is Truth." That He might make of all nations a holy people, seperated unto Him, to live with Him forever in righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
How important it is to read this book, and meditate in it with prayer, seeking God for understanding, and obeying him as he enables us and leads us by His Spirit
to do it! Do we love and value His Word above all things in the Earth, and all other words of men which cannot profit?

A lot to Overcome

We have alot to overcome still, but that is the whole purpose and power of the Gospel. Jesus gave himself on the cross, not only to save us from our sins and the wrath of God which is coming upon all the wicked, but also to make a people, conformed to His image , holy and seperate from this present evil world, to take part in the first ressurection:Revelation 20:4-6,  And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. Jesus said, If you continue in my Word, then you will be my diciples indeed, and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Continue means reading and getting understanding from God by the Holy Spirit, and being led by him to do the Words He is revealing to you, and as you humble yourself and let God lead you this way you will be following Jesus and he will be setting you free through the truth from lies and spirits and sins that have you bound. As you walk this way with the Lord, and only He can bring you into this by His Holy Spirit, His Word, His truth is becoming a part of your very being, and you are being changed into His image. There will be persecutions and tribulations with it, but also glory, honor and peace and eternal life.

Walk in the Spirit

Gal 5:16-25  This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Rom 8:1-14  There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
The Apostle Peter wrote in 2Pe 3:15 , 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;
2Pe 3:16  As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
Peter warned us right here that people will twist the writings of the apostle Paul to their own destruction, and also to the destruction of those who embrace their false teachings. There are two major twistings that are being promoted and published in a big way in our time, that will bring destruction to many that are embracing them. So much of this goes straight back to John 3 where Jesus said that He did not come to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved. This is the condemnation that light is come into the world (Jesus/the truth) and men loved darkness rather than the light because their deeds are evil and they will not come to the light lest their deeds should be reproved. This is why many are happy to receive false teachings, because of the condition of thier hearts. One of these twistings is right here in Rom 8:
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
This scripture is talking about the Spirit of Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the Father. If you don't have the Spirit of Christ you are none of His.You are not born again. You haven't received Him. If you are born again:
Gal 4:6  And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father; The Spirit of Christ is in your heart. You are His. And you have been baptized into his death. You are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God. You have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. The Spirit is life because of righteousness; you are called to walk in the Spirit, being led by the Spirit to do the will of the Father every day. That is why the Father sent the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. You cannot walk in the Spirit unless you have been filled with the Spirit. However many twist these scriptures in Romans and elsewhere to say that you received the Holy Spirit when you received the Spirit of Christ into your heart. No, you received Christ, and He dwells in your heart by faith, you have been born of the Spirit, but you must be baptized in the Holy Spirit to receive power, Acts 1:8, and to be His witness, to walk in the Spirit. If any man says that he abides in Christ, let Him walk as He walked. How did Jesus walk? He said of Himself: I only do what I see the Father doing, and I only say what I hear the Father saying. How did He do that? He was filled with the Holy Spirit at the Jordan river when John the Baptist baptized Him, then He was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to overcome the Devil and the world, and he came out in the power of the Spirit. We must have the power of the Spirit with us to put to death the deeds of the flesh that we may live in the Spirit and do the Father's will, denying ourselves, taking up our cross and following Jesus every day. He is going to lead us by the Holy Spirit.

Another major twisting of Paul's writings is turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,  Jude 4. Sin is no longer a problem. We are not under the law but under grace, Jesus took care of all sin once forever, I'm in faith so I'm not in sin, I'm being led by the Spirit so it's not sin, etc, etc, etc. The only problem is, if you are going to follow Paul's writings, you need to read them all and follow the whole counsel of God's Word, and right here in Gal 5 Paul gave a very clear list of the works of the flesh and he said if you do those things you will not inherit the Kingdom of God, but he said if you walk in the Spirit you won't fulfill the lusts of the flesh. In Romans: If you live after the flesh you shall die, but if you through the Spirit do mortify, put to death, the deeds of the body, you shall live. The Lord has promised that He will give to every one of us according to our works:
Rom 2:6  Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
Rom 2:7  To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
Rom 2:8  But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
Rom 2:9  Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
Rom 2:10  But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
Rom 2:11  For there is no respect of persons with God.
We are without excuse. He has given us His Son, He has given us His Word, and He has given us His Holy Spirit. We only need receive and walk in all that He has so kindly given us, and we will overcome and enter into His kingdom. So ask yourself honestly, Am I really walking in the Spirit or am I walking in the flesh? If you are walking in the flesh you can repent and ask the Father to fill you with His Holy Spirit and lead you and help you to walk in the Spirit every day. Then you will have the fruit of the Spirit manifesting in your life: Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Temperance, against such there is no law.

The Steps of a Righteous Man

We are hearing much today of the trouble that is coming and all the different things we need to do to prepare and be ready. No doubt trouble is coming; no doubt we need to prepare and be ready. We need to ask God to perfect our hearts toward Him, for the eyes of the Lord go to and fro in the Earth looking for someone to show Himself strong on their behalf whose heart is perfect toward Him. We need not fear what is coming if our trust is completely in God Almighty and not in any man.
Psalm 28:7: The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song will I praise Him. Psalm27:5: For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in His pavilion; and in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a rock. That Rock is Jesus Christ, trusting in Him, doing His Words, obeying His voice. Rejoice!  for the steps of a righteous man are ordered of God:

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".

There is the truth and there is a lie. That's all there is to it. You cannot have another truth besides the truth, ie: "your truth and my truth". If it is besides the truth it is a lie. Jesus Christ said He is the truth; He said the Word of God is the truth in John 17; the scriptures also say that the Holy Spirit is the truth. The Word of God spoken by the Holy Spirit is life. , John 6:63: It is the Spirit that quickens (gives life); the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you are spirit and are life. Lies are ministered by the Devil, also perversions of the truth, and, if we believe them, they bring us into bondage and ultimately death. Jesus said, John 8:31&32, If you continue in my Word, then are you my disciple indeed; and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. Free! From the bondage of the lies we have received because of the condition of our hearts.  Heb 3:12&13: Take heed brethren lest there be in any of you and evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God, but exhort one another daily while it is called today, lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. Sin is deceitful. As you are continuing in it and enjoying it's pleasures, all the while your heart is being hardened and your love is growing cold (Matt 24:12), and when it is finished,(James 1:15) will bring forth death. So beloved, turn completely from your sins unto the one who loved you and washed you from them in His own blood, and love Him with all your heart and live!
