A Dark Evil Over The Land, ABORTION

I can’t think of anything that would make God angrier than killing little babies except rejection of his Son Jesus Christ, whom he gave to die for the sins of the World. The Bible says, ” If they will not obey I will utterly pluck up and destroy that Nation saith the Lord.” Jeremiah 12:17. “The wicked shall be turned into Hell and all of the nations that forget God. “Psalm 9:17. “Now consider this ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces and there be none to deliver.” Psalm 50:22. Those that tear babies in pieces will also be torn in pieces. What horrible monsters. Their conscience is seared with a hot iron. They have hardened their hearts and will live in Hell for the rest of their miserable lives and when they die, they will go to Hell. What kind of a horrible Monster would kill a baby? There is only one hope for them, and that is to turn to Jesus Christ, and seek forgiveness. Jesus said: “And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth meBut whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 

Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. 

Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.” ( Matthew 18). The Jews had their own favorite means of abortion which was their god molech a terrible large image of a beast that had a raging fire inside of its belly that the evil people would throw their babies into its mouth and burn them up. The Egyptians would throw their babies to the crocodiles. Next to rejection of Jesus Christ, abortion is Americas worst national sin in which millions upon millions have been slaughtered.The abortion monster devils, try and make it look all clean in a nice hospital setting, and call it a procedure. Well God is going to preform a procedure on them.  Jesus said “Let the little children come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the kingdom of Heaven, Don’t kill babies  There are people who want to adopt.
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
 

Let It Pass

Don’t stoop my friend, to answer back,
Why not just LET IT PASS?
You’ll find this giving word for word 
Will never pay, alas.
Though ‘tis true of human nature
This giving tit for tat,
Yet truly happy folks have found
A better way than that.
And though it seems impossible
It’s better in the end
To let them have their way, and then
Just LET IT PASS, my friend.

I know sometimes it’s very hard
And seems it can’t be done,
But if you’ll learn this better way
A victory will be won;
For you will save what’s so worthwhile,
Both time and feelings too,
When you ignore what has been said,
Don’t try to argue through.
For then you’ll now without a doubt
‘Twas better in the end,
To let them have their way, and then
Just LET IT PASS, my friend.

Now some folks always answer back,
They never hold their peace;
In trying to defend themselves
It seems they never cease;
Giving vent to every feeling
Whatever’s on the mind
Regardless of the consequence.
Then after all, to find
It didn’t pay and would have been
Much better in the end
To have borne it all in silence
And LET IT PASS, my friend.

For truly great folks never stoop
To answer petty things;
The unkind word, the bitter cut
That rankles deep and stings.
They are too big to notice them,
They simply pass them by,
And even with a smile sometimes
Or twinkle in the eye.
For they have found that after all
‘Twas better in the end
To meet it with a smile, and then
Just LET IT PASS, my friend!

JESUS PEOPLE

We are Jesus People, Jesus Lovers, Jesus Needers, Jesus Wanters. In fact we can’t get enough of Jesus. We want more and more of Jesus and less of us. “He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:30). We want to think Jesus, talk Jesus, live Jesus, breathe Jesus. If everyone would be like Jesus the whole world would be like paradise. All we know is that we love Jesus, and that’s all that matters. Give me more of Jesus. We are Jesus fanatics. We pray to Jesus. We worship Jesus. We sing to Jesus. When we love Jesus we are also loving God and the Holy Spirit, because they are one. Jesus is the sweetest name I know, and that is why we love him so. Everything we do we want to do it for Jesus. If they don’t want Jesus then they do not want us, because all we are is full of Jesus! I want more of Jesus and his love. You can take the whole world, just give me Jesus. I have decided to follow Jesus. Like Peter said when many turned back when Jesus gave them some hard sayings. “Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.”(John 6: 68,69). I want to be renewed in Jesus everyday. Yet we can become all things to all men that we might winsome, but inside it’s all Jesus and we just want everyone to be closer to him too.For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; to them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.” (1 Corinthians 9: 19-23). Jesus is the Answer for all the world. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Jesus is the answer to all of your problems. Jesus Loves You! Follow Jesus Today !!!

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

 

WE NEED A BALANCE

The physical world that we see every day is a manifestation of the spiritual world. Jesus used physical stories called parables to teach us spiritual lessons. Jesus said; “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:4,5). Just like in the physical world we need to eat and drink to survive. Well our Spirits also need to be fed by reading and drinking in, and really absorbing God’s Word in our spirits, so we can grow spiritually. “as newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: ”(I Peter 2:2).

As we grow in the spirit we can start eating different foods besides just milk, just like a baby does when he grows older. The Book of John (which is still my favorite) is like the milk of the Word, and the Book of Revelations is like the meat or the steak of the Word for people who are not newborn babes anymore. We also need to exercise in the physical to stay in good shape to survive and grow. This is like it is in the spirit. Spiritual exercise is like witnessing and helping others to know Jesus, and exercising our spiritual muscles by sharing our faith with others, like the Bible tells us too. We are not supposed to live to eat, but to eat to live, but there is also a balance to that saying. “O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” (Psalm 34:8) The Lord loves you so much that he made good tasting food for you to enjoy. Just look at a strawberry, it looks so pretty and even desirable, and tastes so good. God didn’t have to make a strawberry for us, but he did to show us his love. He just wants us to be thankful for his wonderful creation, and to enjoy it, and love him, and to help others to do the same, by knowing him, the creator, by coming to him through Jesus Christ his Only Begotten Son. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6). You can’t survive spiritually on just a little teaspoon of food every Sunday morning. You need to eat spiritually a well balanced meal from the word for your spirit everyday. So if you are feeling sluggish and run down spiritually maybe it is because you haven’t been feeding your spirit rightly, or exercising properly. You also need proper rest. “It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.”(Psalm 127:2). This is like in the spirit taking prayer time and finding that rest and peace that Jesus gives us for our spirit when we take time with the Master to pray. “casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” (1 Peter 5:7). So get a good balance if you want to feel good spiritually, just like you have to do in the physical.  “A false balance is an abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight.” (Proverbs 11:21). “Divers weights are an abomination unto the Lord; and a false balance is not good.”(Proverbs 20:23)

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

Salvation Class Part 1 (video& text)

 

Why we need to be saved:

  1. Romans 6:23  “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

  2. Isaiah 53:6 “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”

  3. Isaiah 64:6 “But we all are as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”

  4. John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath ever lasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” The word BELIEVE comes from  a Greek word (Pisteuo) which means to take in and have confidence. We have to take Jesus into our heart, and put our confidence and trust in him..

  5. Revelation 20:14,15 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” If your born only once you’ll die twice, but if your born twice you only have to die once, unless you are alive at the Resurrection and Rapture, then you don’t even have to die once. ( If you have received Jesus Christ as your Saviour.)

                                                 How to get saved:

  1. John 3:16 “ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

  2. Romans 10: 9,10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”The Lord wants everyone who is saved to make a public confession of their faith. Mark 8:36-38 “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

  3. Ephesians 2:8,9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (GRACE is a Gift Received AChrist’s Expense !!!) Salvation = Grace+Faith+Nothing!

  4. John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”

  5. Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart. Will you let him in?

  6. Acts 16:31 “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

  7. Titus 3:5 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”

  8. Galatians 4:6 “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Ab’-ba, Father.” ( This is why we ask Jesus to come into our heart.)

  9. John 3:3-6 “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto to thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nic-o-de’-mus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” We need to be spiritually born again by asking Jesus to come into our heart.“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

  10. I John 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.”

  11. Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.”

  12. John 14: 6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Jesus, I want to know you and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things, and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Savior. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

Why we need the Old Testament?

Someone recently said, “we don’t need the Old Testament.” Well, that poor misguided soul who said that couldn’t be more wrong. The Old Testament has countless verses and true stories, and historical accounts that we can learn from. “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” (1 Corinthians 10:11). Jesus is the Word.  “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14). “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8). “For I am the Lord I change not.” (Malachi 3:6a).So since Jesus is the Word ,and never changes, and is the same yesterday, today, and forever, we had better not dismiss the Old Testament,  because in so doing we are dismissing Jesus Christ. Jesus even said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:35). The Bible says, “Remove not the ancient landmark,which thy fathers have set.” (Proverbs 22:28). The Old Testament is full of faith building scriptures that you need to know and memorize. The Book of Psalms has so many encouraging promises that we really need today in our lives, not to mention the Book of Proverbs which is full of wisdom for everybody. Then you have all the Bible prophecies which are unfolding in our daily lives, such as the Book of Isaiah and Daniel, which we need to study and be prepared for the End Times. “And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: and others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.” (Hebrew 11:32-40). It is true that we are not under the Mosaic Law, but under Grace. “Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.” (Romans 7:4). We are dead to the law by the body of Christ, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t learn from it. There are even health lessons to be learned in the law. Jesus said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”  (Matthew 5:17-18). The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed, and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed. Without the Old Testament we couldn’t prove the New Testament through fulfilled Prophecy. Even the Old Testament Law had many references to Jesus Christ.  “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ,that we might be justified by faith.” (Galatians 3:24). So you see we really do need the Old Testament, and we can’t kick it out or ignore it, just like we can’t take out the foundation that our house is built upon. The Lord even had a shepherd find the dead sea Scrolls in 1947, proving that the Bible hasn’t been changed when they found copies of the Old Testament Books, which are said to be “supernaturally  identical to the King James Bible”. The Old Testament also contains the Genealogies which shows us how Old the Earth is. I hope this lesson will be a help to you and strengthen your faith and your desire to dig into the Word of God. “Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6).

 

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

Wondrous Truths ! Some helpful Hebrew and Greek

 

 If you desire to learn more about the Bible, then it is helpful to learn the meaning  of some Greek and Hebrew words to give you a more in depth understanding of the scriptures. If you just want a basic understanding of the scriptures, then the King James Bible is the best for you to achieve that goal. Here are some important Hebrew and Greek words that you should know.

In Genesis 1:28 the word replenish comes from the Hebrew word “male or mela”, Which means to “fill”. See our teaching called ” ANOTHER FALSE DOCTRINE FROM THE DEVIL EXPOSED !” for a detailed explanation.

Did you know that when you add “im” (in Hebrew) on to the word God it makes it plural? (Elohim). So in the first chapter  where it says God created everything it is actually saying Gods, meaning God, and Jesus, and the Holy Spirit made everything together.
In Hebrew the word “Ruah” was translated into English as the word Spirit, and it refers to feminine, and the word Spirit in Greek is “Pneuma” which can mean either male or female. When the King James Bible was translated from Greek to English in 1611, it was during a time when blasphemers and heretics were burned at the stake. The Scholars  who translated the Bible were apparently afraid of saying that the Holy Spirit was feminine so they used the word ” he ” when referring to the Holy Spirit, instead of saying “she” as is clearly brought out in Hebrew. Also when Jesus was speaking in Aramaic ( the common language of his day) he used a pronoun “Paraclete” that meant feminine when referring to the Holy Spirit. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” ( Genesis 1:26,27). This verse also shows that God and the Holy Spirit are not some kind of vaporous gas, but an actual being, and that we look like their image. Many preachers say there is no hope for people in Hell, and that once you die and are not saved you are doomed forever to hell. This false teaching offends many peoples sense of God’s love, and mercy, and turns many away from God.  Some of those verses about eternity in the Bible actually come from the Hebrew word “Olam” meaning distant future or distant past, but were translated into English to mean forever. Also in Greek the word “Con ” means a time period. This word “Con” was also translated into English as  “forever”. So it doesn’t necessarily mean that hell and peoples confinement there is forever. A better translation would be for a time period. So those three days that Jesus’ body lay in the tomb, his spirit went to hell to give those people there another chance to get out by believing in him and accepting him as their saviour. For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;” (1 Peter 3:18,19).“For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” (Matthew 12:40). Why would Jesus go to hell when his body was in the tomb, and preach to the spirits in prison there if they couldn’t have another chance to get out? Praise God for his mercy and Love, which endures forever !!! This means if you have a loved one who died and you were not sure if they were saved or not, there is hope for them still, and they are not doomed to Hell forever with no hope of ever seeing them again, as so many churches teach. MESSIAH, is a Hebrew word and it means “The Anointed One.” The word “Messiah” means, “Christ” in Greek. Jesus was anointed by God in 26 A.D. to begin his public ministry and to die for the sins of everyone who will receive him as their Saviour. When John Baptized him, the Holy Spirit descended upon him.  “And  lo a voice from heaven,(was heard) saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.(Matthew 3:17). The word “David” in Hebrew means “The Beloved of God”, which is obviously talking  about Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament the prophecies in Ezekiel and Hosea, referring to “David” and the End Times are talking about Jesus Christ, and the Jews who will turn to Jesus as their Messiah, specifically the 144,000 of Revelation Chapters 7&14. “And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant DAVID; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant DAVID a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it. “ ( Ezekiel 34:23,24). “And DAVID my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant DAVID shall be their prince for ever.” (Ezekiel 37:24,25). “afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and DAVID their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.” (Hosea 3:5).For a clearer understanding of these verses, every place where it says DAVID just say” The Beloved of GOD“, who is JESUS CHRIST. The word “Week” found in Daniel Chapter 9, comes from the Hebrew word “Shabuwa”, which means a period of seven years. Study our class on Daniel Chapter 9 for a detailed understanding on this so very important subject. “NOW FAITH  is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).The word “Substance” comes from the Greek word “Hupostasis”, which means the “Title Deed”. In other words if you have the Title Deed to a property you know that you own it, and you can be sure it is yours even if you have never even seen it !” The word “Believe” comes from the Greek word  “Pisteuo” which means to trust and take in.You don’t really need to learn the whole Greek and Hebrew language to understand the Bible, but it would’t hurt, if you think you have enough time. If you just understand the Hebrew and Greek in this lesson it will greatly help you to understand some of these basic truths of God’s Word. Jesus said; “Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst, after righteousness for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6). The Bible says; “Open thou mine eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” (Psalm 119:18).

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

 

 

ARE YOU ONE OF GOD’S SHEEP?

Did you know that sheep are about the only animal that is totally indefensible they can’t run fast, they have no body protection, only soft wool, little small hooves for feet, no horns (to speak of) PictureofSHEEP or big sharp teeth. They are always running off and going astray, and getting caught in the rocks, and crannies and thorn bushes. They are totally dependent upon their Shepherd to protect them from the wolves, and other predators. This must be the reason Jesus used sheep to describe his people. “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:” (John 10:27). That is how you can tell who the sheep are. They hear his voice and they follow Jesus. Some sheep follow  the Shepherd from a far distance, and they are in more danger, and not as safe as the sheep who stick close to the Shepherd, “ I am the good shepherd: the good Shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one Shepherd. Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.” (John 10:11-17). “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6). “and before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left.” (Matthew 25:32-33). The Bible also says; “Woe to the Idol Shepherd that leaveth the flock! The sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be cleaned dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.” (Zechariah 11:17). “feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the over sight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.” (1 Peter 5:2-4). Are you one of God’s sheep, or one of his Shepherd’s, or a goat?

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

HOW TO JUDGE A RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT

 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” (John 7:24). Remember there are always at least two sides to every story, and sometimes even more. The main thing is God’s side. God’s side is the right side. It doesn’t matter what I think or what anybody thinks. What matters is what God thinks. To determine this you must hear all sides of the story before you can make a righteous judgment after praying about it. Don’t jump to conclusions before hearing the other guys side, or you might be having to apologize and eat some humble pie. Walk a mile in their shoes before you judge them. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9). See the lesson on “Judge or Not to Judge”. This lesson is especially important if you are a parent or a person who people might respect or if you represent the Lord as an Ambassador of Christ, such as this story of King Solomon who was blessed by God with Wisdom and Righteous Judgment, because he pleased God. Solomon knew he was not worthy, and prayed the Lord God would only give him wisdom to righteously judge God’s people as the servant of God. “Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him. And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house. And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house. And this woman’s child died in the night; because she overlaid it. And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear. And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king. Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living. And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other. Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it. Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof. And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.” (1 Kings 3:16-28) This is just one example in the Bible of God giving Righteous Judgment to his servants. Seek to be more like Jesus Christ, God’s Only Begotten Son who was the righteousness’ of God. May the Lord bless you with wisdom and discernment, in judging others, even members of your own family.

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
