To Save The Lost

Luke 19:10New Living Translation (NLT)

10 For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”
Jesus didn't come into the world to be the King, He came in for His father's purpose to Save The Lost!
He didn't come in to set up a Kingdom as many thought in that time, He came to show love and compassion, give grace and understanding to everyone. But the people didn't understand, so because He tried to tell them this world was not His home, His Kingdom was and is in Heaven with His Father and when you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ making him the Lord of your life, repenting your sins and making each day devoted to him you will be saved.
But those who reject Christ will be forever lost, their eternity will be Hell, this is scripture.

When You Believe in Jesus

Romans 10:9-10New Living Translation (NLT)

If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.

What an affirmation for us! When you believe that Jesus was raised from the dead, confess your sins and declare that you have faith in Jesus then you will be saved!

What is it that you are saved from?
Eternal fire in Hell.
.....and don't let anyone fool you my friends, Hell is very real, don't let anyone down play that, you become a slave to satan forever, no water, just misery, weeping and destruction.

The Good News is....What you get when you get saved!
Eternal life with Jesus!
living water, peace, love and joy forever and ever.

So if you  or someone you know is on a destructive spiritual path, remind them of the great love of Christ and what they receive when they give their lives over to Him!
Hallelujah what a Savior!

Jesus The Passover Lamb

Exodus 12:27New International Version (NIV)

27 then tell them, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice to the Lord, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when he struck down the Egyptians.’”Then the people bowed down and worshiped.
If you don't know the story, then you don't know the connecting significance to Jesus.
God told Moses tell the people the Angel of Death will passover the houses tell the Israelites to put sacrificed blood of animals around the doors of their homes so that the ,  angel of death would pass them by and that night the angel passed over the homes where the blood had been painted around the doors, thus killing the first born of all Egyptians. Ever since that time the Jewish people celebrate Passover for God had saved their children from death.
Jesus was Gods One and Only Son and God gave Him up as the Passover lamb when they put Him on the cross as a sacrifice for us all, a sin offering to the Father. But you see we no longer had to sacrifice animals because Jesus did it on the cross for us, the shed blood and then, the Resurrection.

Shalom on this Passover to all who love the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world and grants us grace and peace!

Don't Be Afraid, Be Bold

John 10:28-30New Living Translation (NLT)

28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, 29 for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. 30 The Father and I are one.”
When you believe in Jesus, you have eternal life with Him in Heaven, your name is written in the Lamb's book of Life, which is the eternal book set in Heaven. You were chosen from the foundation of the world and no one and nothing can take your soul because you belong to Jesus who is given all power in Heaven and on earth!
So if you are ridiculed, beaten, mocked, defending Jesus and the gospel, count it all joy my friend there is no bigger honor in earth and heaven! Jesus hears and sees it all, be wise in your words to others they hold a weight with getting to know Jesus.                          
 Don't be afraid, Be bold!

Caught Up In False Teaching

Galatians 5:19-21
19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Being caught up in the New Age movement is spell bounding, the lure of it's magic overtakes an individual and they no longer can function in the world around them because they feel they have a divine power given by master teachers. How do I know this? I was lured into this world myself in the early part of the 1990's and it's seductive. Praying to false gods is like praying into dead air. That's satan, luring you into false teachings, demons and so much more.
But you know because I didn't know the Bible and it's teachings I was unable to stop this battle, maybe it was meant to be because I am telling you right now in this post. That world is false teachings and if you are caught up in it, cry out to the Lord to save you. It robbed me of peace, (which it falsely tells you it gives) I was spiritually attacked the deeper I went   into it. I met some false teachers that lured into their web of deceit, when I thought they cared about me they cared  only for themselves. I almost lost my family, I almost walked away. But Jesus saved me and I remember the night I asked Him to help me, I was desperate and I felt like I was hollowed out from within.
I felt peace after I asked Jesus, He knew I had enough, how blessed was I to be saved from the clutches of death and satan. Thank God Jesus saved me and I am Born Again! 
If you are practicing this or you know someone who is then you or they will not be saved and you will not go to Heaven, unless you repent and make Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior. He is the One and ONLY LIVING GOD. Shedding His blood for you at the cross for you and your sins.
This is what God says in His Commandments:

Exodus 20:1-6

The Ten Commandments

And God spoke all these words:
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
You shall have no other gods before me.
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. (that could be crystals, gods, or anything material)You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

If you know someone that is going through this, point them to these scriptures because they will not ever have peace with God unless they seek Him only. But as Paul told the Galatians, this is what God gives to us when we follow Him and the Holy Spirit enters our lives.
Galatians 5:22-26
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

Blessed Are The Poor In Spirit

Matthew 5:1-3

Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

He said:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

So what does it mean to be poor in spirit?
Does it mean that you must be always giving yourself away to everything? No I think Jesus is telling us here to be humble before God, to seek His ways above yours and know the blessings that He gives you (and sometimes we don't see them) are out of His great love for you.

Be poor in spirit means you need Him more, you depend on Him more and you just love Him more. That's the way He wants it! Love Him and go to Him for all your needs. 

I know you just might be struggling now, but my friend it won't be for too long!

Jesus Is The Eternal God

1 Corinthians 15:3-4

I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.

The Scriptures point to Jesus throughout the Old Testament, but even at the time of His rising, there was doubt, confusion, disbelief. But Jesus is the one and one living God, which dwelled among us and because we love and worship Him, resides with us forever. 
What god, material thing or triumph could compare? None, I say to you, Jesus is the living God and yes walking with you now through the Holy Spirit. Don't think you are alone because He is with you, leading and guiding.
Question, what is preventing you from getting on your knees and thanking Him for all you have? Provision of food, water, a place to live, these are what God provides to those who love Him. All else is a mere flash of light, you love it one day, can't be bothered with it the next because it it not eternal, only God provides eternal life.

We Fall Short

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
Romans 3:23-24 NIV

Jesus Says "Follow Me"

Luke 9:23-24New Living Translation (NLT)

23 Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross daily, and follow me. 24 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.
Giving up the things of the world isn't easy. It takes strength that only comes from God, but you must desire a relationship with Him and as you do He begins a work in you that will sustain you through the "giving up" you have to do. Giving up means, letting go of the things of this world that bind you to it. Like, having to make alot of money which in reality is like a boulder tied to your neck, the more you desire it, the heavier the weight because it drags you down in trying to keep up with it, clearly this isn't something that God wants for your life. He wants you to be free to have a life lived for Him not the things of this world, which weigh you down.
You will see my friend how your life can change when you start handing it over to Jesus, you no longer have a deep need to please people but to please God. So take this small step with me today. Go to God in prayer and say, Heavenly Father, I do not want to live a burdened life, the things I have done, I am not proud of but I know if I tell you I am sorry for them you will forgive me and let me have the kind of life lived for you.
Go in Peace my friend, go to Jesus for it all.

God's great Love For Us

Romans 5:6-8

When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
Yes, we are all sinners and fall short of the glory of God. But Thank God for His one and only Son Jesus, he went to the cross for those sins we have committed and continue to commit, that blood, oh how it washes us clean.

Taking Broken, Making You Whole

Hebrews 1:3 The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven.

Who would ever be able to cleanse you of your sins? Jesus did this for you! He came into the world not to condemn us but to save us from eternal death. He went to the cross for us! oh how wonderful, oh how marvelous is our Savior! 
He cleansed us from our sins so that when we leave this earth, we leave this flesh behind and go to our eternal fate with Him in Heaven when we trust in Him and repent of our sins.
Why not turn your broken life over to Him today, there is no one on earth that can solve your problems but the Lord, He knows you inside and out, you might ask how is that possible? He created you from the foundation of the world, He picked the time He was going to bring you into this life and to Himself. He has plans for you, plans to love you, watch over your life and lead you to quiet waters. Sometimes those quiet waters are storms but that's why you stay focused on Him, He will guide your steps. If you are lost, you are really found, He is waiting for you, right now!

Hope for The Future

When the world seems overwhelming, where do you put your hope?

link to wordpress article:

Where Do You Put Your Hope?

Give God the Praise

If there is anything that we should learn from a relationship with God and His one and Only Son, Jesus Christ is that miracles exist all around us and we need only to step back and look at the way the Holy Spirit guides us along the path to seeing God in everyday small miracles.

Miracles could be as simple as being able to get up in the morning and right there is a praise, do you have a bed to sleep in, a home to live in? That's a praise!

Did your car start? Were you able to have food, That's Praise- the list goes on. See God in all the small things and you will notice the bigger things He does that you overlook!

Psalm 71:8 My mouth is filled with your praise,
    declaring your splendor all day long.

Purchased by the Blood Of Christ

Ephesians 1:7New Living Translation (NLT)

He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.
God sent His one and only Son into the world for you and me! He went to the cross so that we would be forgiven of our sins. Repent of your sins and live free in Him, for no one will enter the kingdom of God unless they are born again.

Faithful Friday

Psalm 14:1

 A psalm of David.

Only fools say in their hearts,
    “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their actions are evil;
    not one of them does good!
