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 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".

Quench Not The Spirit !!!

Please read 1Thessalonians 5:19-24

Vs 19-22: 
Quench not the Spirit
Despise not prophesyings
Prove all things
Hold fast to that which is good
Abstain from all appearance of evil

Do not quench the Holy Spirit ! This is a commandment of the Lord.
Do not resist Him. Submit yourself wholly to Him in the name of Jesus Christ
the Son of God and resist the devil.
All the things that God has given to us through the death and ressurection of His Son
are GOOD !!! It is the devil who has lied to you to rob you of these wonderful things
to try to make you unfruitful and ineffective; telling you in many cases that you received
the Holy Spirit when you were water baptized. Really? Does He ever manifest in your life?
If you have a question about any manifestation of the Spirit, or word spoken in the name
of Jesus, search the scriptures to see if it is truly of God. Stay with what is written.
His Word is the truth. Ask God to show you and give you understanding. If you are 
humble and sincere before Him He will answer you. Wait for the answer, then obey Him.
He will bless you and make you a blessing. The Father loves us and He will give us the 
Holy Spirit if we will ask Him. If we ask for a fish He will not give us a snake.
Trust Him and be filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and
spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of Jesus Christ.
Eph 5:18&19
A note about spiritual songs and worship:
Jesus said, God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
In Spirit means in the Holy Spirit and in truth means in the Word of God.
John 17:17 Thy Word is truth.
Any other worship is unacceptable to God.
Jesus also said, It is the Spirit that quickens (makes alive); the flesh profits nothing
The words I speak unto you are spirit and they are life. But there are some of you that
don't beleive. So it is today.

...Forgetting those things that are behind...
Please read Pilippians 3:8-14.
Verses 13 and 14: Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do; forgetting those things which are behind,
and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Forget the things that are behind. If we have repented to God and to those we have wronged, and we have forgiven those that wronged us,
that is the end of it. We cannot go back and change anything. If we keep meditating on and talking about the wrongs of the past; feeling guilty
and ashamed, we cannot possibly move forward in faith. Satan is usually involved seeking to seduce our faith and parallize us. It is also a denial
of the work of the cross and the Blood of Jesus in our lives, by which we have been justified from all things.
We must repent and believe what Jesus accomplished for us and move on in faith, not looking back any more. Amen
Phil 1:6, Being confident of this very thing, that He which has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
Just say to the Lord, Is there anything I yet need to repent of, or anyone I need to repent to or forgive? If so, please show me.
Meanwhile from this day on I am moving forward with you in faith, not looking back, but looking unto Jesus, the author and the finisher of my faith,
Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.Heb 12:1&2
Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true...
Please read Philippians 4:6-9
Verse 8: Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on those things.
We cannot allow the awful things that are happening around us every day to wear us down. The Bible says that the Anti Christ will wear down the saints.
We must resist this gross darkness that is covering the people all over the world by actively meditating on and talking about the true,honest,just,pure,and lovely things; on the good reports, on any virtue and praise, provoking one another to love and good works. All these good things are abundantly found in the Word of God.
So, stop looking back, stop holding back, stop turning back, and start looking forward and moving forward in the Word of God, obedience and faith which works by love.

Christian Entertainment

The words Heaven and entertainment are directly opposed to each other.Entertainment is soulish, the direction is towards my self, to please myself. When my soul is pleased my emotions respond with expressions of joy, shouting, clapping, etc. 
Heaven is filled with worship. Worship is from my spirit to God; spiritual. Jesus said, God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. The people that are with God in Heaven are those that love Him, and with all their heart they are worshiping Him, day and night.There are four living creatures around the throne of God who cease not to say "Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come."
This is a key problem in the church of Jesus Christ on Earth right now, christian entertainment posing as worship, yet the music and the behavior of the people is very often soulish. The emotions are stirred up and the people respond from their souls. This kind of "worship" is not acceptable to God and it is killing the church.
When we worship the Father in spirit and in truth we enter into fellowship with Him as we express our love for Him from our hearts, through the Holy Spirit and the truth, His Word is truth.
He will respond to us according to His perfect will, and we will be edified, built up and strengthened in Him. The Church will grow.

Take Heed

Col 3:1-4  If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God.
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Where is your affection set? How much of your time is spent every day on your cell phone, studying the things of this world?
How much of your conversation is about worldly things, the cares of this life, the lust for other things?

Luk 21:34-36  And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

If your heart is not prepared, you will not be able to stand. If we spend too much time every day on the internet and the things of the world,
We will not be prepared to meet the Lord, and we won't have the fruit that we should.

1Jn 3:1-3  Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew him not.
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
And every man that hath this hope in him purifies himself, even as he is pure.

We must be about purifying ourselves: the kingdom of God, the Word of God, the things of God, and not the things of this world.
Otherwise Satan will succeed in overcharging our hearts and we will not be ready to meet the Lord Jesus.

He is surely coming soon. TAKE HEED !!!

For God So Loved...

For God so loved the World that He gave His only begotten Son,who knew no sin,to be a living sacrifice for all our sins on the cross in Jerusalem, that whoever will repent and believe in Him might be made righteous in Him through faith in that sacrifice, faith in His blood that was shed there that day. His sinless life was in His blood and it was shed for us. He came to take away our sins. Behold the Lamb of God, the spotless Lamb, who takes away the sins of the world. He died to completely pay the penalty for all sin and unrighteousness. He was dead, cut off from the Father, but on the morning of the third day the father raised Him from the dead. He is alive forever more. He is glorified and at the right hand of the Father in Heaven right now. He is coming back very soon in the clouds in all the glory of the Father, with all the saints, and all the angels, and he will gather together all His people to be with Him forever.
Do not be deceived by all the lies being put forth today by false prophets. Jesus said very plainly that He is going to give unto every one of us according to our works. If you have sin in your life repent, confess it to God now, and to every person that you have sinned against. If someone has sinned against you, forgive them now from the heart. Get after this now with all your heart that you might be forgiven and cleansed.
1 John 1;3-10 :
That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you that your joy may be full.
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 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.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us.
I encourage you to read the entire First Epistle of John. The Lord used it greatly in my life to bring me out of deceit....
