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.
