PARADISE ! WHAT IS IT, AND WHERE IS IT?

 “And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:39-43). Jesus was always witnessing, even when he was nailed to the Cross. When Jesus died that day he did not go straight to Heaven. He went and preached to the spirits in prison in the heart of the earth, and he apparently stopped off in a place under the earth called paradise where the old Prophets and the saved people went. Many Bible scholars and Theologians believe this. “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).  “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). He preached to the Sprits in prison obviously to give them another chance to get saved and get out. Many people think that Jesus told the thief on the cross next to him when they were dying that the paradise he was talking about was Heaven which is definitely Paradise also, but if you know the scriptures then you know that Jesus Christ went and preached to the spirits in prison in the heart of the earth. Please read about the different levels of hell in this web site for a greater understanding. Paradise was a good place were the departed people of God went when they died, and they waited there until Jesus resurrected them, and they walked the streets of Jerusalem, until the Lord took them to Heaven also.  “Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,  and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.” (Matthew 27:50-53). “Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.” (John 20:15-18). These verses show us that Jesus didn’t immediately ascend to Heaven when he died. So therefore Paradise is not Heaven as it is used in this verse where Jesus told the thief on the cross next to him they would go this day, to a place called Paradise, other than Heaven, where Jesus went 40 days later. In 1 Samuel Chapter 28, when Saul had the witch of Endor conjure up Samuel from the earth in Paradise were he was waiting for the Lord, Samuel was very upset because he was disturbed from his peaceful place to come back and talk to Saul. Jesus said, he was going to prepare a place for us in John Chapter 14. Can you imagine how beautiful Heaven must be ? God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit created his beautiful creation in only 6 days. Just imagine what it must look like now after he has been working on it for over 2000 years. “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9).


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

WHEN DOES THE LAST SEVEN YEARS START ?

The last 7yrs. Starts when the Anti-Christ confirms the Covenant.

(Daniel 9:27)

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”

A covenant is an agreement or a peace treaty. The covenant will bring about the rebuilding of the third Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. If you read our class in www.answersintheword.com on Daniel Chapter 8 you will understand that after the covenant is confirmed there will be 9 months and 25 days before the daily sacrifice begins. Then in the middle of the last 7 yrs, or 42 months after the covenant is confirmed, or 1260 days to be exact, (in The Hebrew Calendar of 12, thirty day months) the Anti-Christ will break the covenant, take away the daily sacrifice, be healed of a deadly wound, or assassinated and the Devil will enter his body and proclaim himself as God, and cause all to worship him and receive his mark, and force the Image of the Beast on people, place the Abomination of Desolation in the Temple. Then begins The Great Tribulation, and the Six Trumpets of the Tribulation.

(Matthew 24:15-31)

“When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains:  let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

(Revelation Chapter 8)

“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; and the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; and the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!”

(Revelation Chapter 9)

“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment has as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”

The Seventh Trumpet is the Rapture. ( SEE: Revelation Chapter 10) & ( 1 Corinthians 15)

(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 )

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

President Trump & Jared Kushner recently put together a Covenant between the Arabs and the Jews. They plan to sign it in the White House soon. We need to carefully watch the news about this.- This could be the start of the Last Seven Years. We will keep you updated.

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

ASTRONOMICAL FAKE NEWS

Recently the so called intelligent astronomers and scientists say they have discovered a huge “Wall of Galaxies” extending for 700 million light years. Boy; that makes them sound like they are really smart doesn’t it, or it really makes some people think they are.

The Devil is a liar and the Father of Lies. Jesus said: “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44). It’s like Evolution. Some of these so called smart scientists say the world is millions or billions of years old. In fact the older they say it is the more the people think they are really smart. While there is no proof of what they say, just a bunch of made up lies, guess work, and fake news ! ” Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,” ( Romans 1:22).

The speed of light is said to be 186,000. miles per second and some scientists have different calculations. Even Albert Einstein said; the speed of of light is not constant, if you will take the time to study the “Age of the Earth Chart” (Please click on the link at the bottom) you will see that the earth is only 6,180 yrs. old as of 2020 AD. So if the speed of light is 186,000 miles per second, times 60 seconds in a minute equals 111,600,000 miles per minute, times 60 minutes in an hour equals 669,600,000 miles per hour times 24 hours in a day equals 16,070,400,000 which would be the speed of light in one day, times 365 days a year or (if you use a Jewish calendar which is 360 days a year, or 12 thirty day months.) equals 58656696E12 which is the speed of light in one year, times 6,180 years since Creation equals 362500013E16, this is how far the speed of light has traveled since Creation, not to mention the day that the stars were created on the 4th day and the seconds, minutes, hours, days, that have passed since the beginning of this year. In other words no Star we can see could be further away from the earth than that because the earth was created 6,180 years ago. No Star that we can see could be further away than that. This is not to say that God did not create Stars which are much further away than that, it’s just that we can’t see them yet. But as everyday passes, every hour, every minute and every second passes more Stars come into view. Just remember ; “As far as the east is from the west,
so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
” (Psalms 103:12). The EAST and WEST never meet and they go on FOREVER !!! God’s creation is endless, so is His LOVE, MERCY, and FORGIVENESS, and He sent His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ to this little speck we live on called earth, to die for all the sins of mankind. Remember Jesus was the first of God’s Creation, and after that God created the Earth, Stars, Planets, Galaxies, and Comets. “These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;” ( Revelations 13:4b). ( Genesis Chapter 1). Isn’t God, and Jesus, and the Holy Spirit amazing? “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech,
and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
 There is no speech nor language,
where their voice is not heard.
Their line is gone out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
( Psalms 19:1-4).

Jesus said ; ” I am the bright and the morning Star.” The brightest Star that we can see at night. (Revelations 22:16). “he made the stars also” ( Genesis 1:16b).

WE AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN YET !

“If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee,
then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?” (Jeremiah 12:5).
If you think things are rough now, well wait until we get to the Great Tribulation. But don’t worry 1 Corinthians 10:13 says; “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” We are going to escape right out of the Great Tribulation in the Rapture to Heaven with Jesus Christ the Only Begotten Son of God, before the Wrath of God is Poured upon the Earth !!! SEE: Our classes on Revelation Chapters 15-19, and Matthew 24. I wish we could get Raptured out of here before The Great Tribulation like most of the Churches teach, but it is not scriptural. “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:12-13). The money manipulators who try to control things behind the scenes with their false media will get worse and worse. These devils are ultimately controlled by the devil himself. “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.” (Luke 4:5-6). “Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” (Revelation 12:12b). Jesus will give you grace and strength for the hour of the trial and not before, so don’t worry about it. “looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our 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. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin” (Hebrews 12:2-4). Many are saying today, ” Oh, times are so hard, I have to homeschool, and I can’t get enough money to pay for all my idols, and there is so much to have to worry about.” The Bible says; “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19). “And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.” (1 Timothy 6:8). And it doesn’t say designer clothing or raiment.


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

The Cure for Corona Virus

“And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.” (Numbers 21:4-9). Jesus said; “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John3:14-15)

Many Doctors wear this symbol of a Brass serpent on a Staff to represent healing and that they are of the Healing profession.






Even though the people murmured and sinned against the Lord by complaining against Moses, Gods Prophet and Messenger, Moses still prayed for them and then God in his Mercy told Moses what to do to save the people. “but they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.” (2 Chronicles 36:16). This reminds me of how the people today (mostly the Democrats) mock and murmur about God’s Messenger, President Trump. Could this be one of the reasons why the Lord has allowed this pestilence and plague of Corona Virus ? I believe this judgment of God has descended upon the world and America because of this sin and others such as abortion which is going on one hundred million babies killed now, and many other sins. You know you can only push God so far until you make him angry, and you don’t want to do that. “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” (Hebrews 10:31). It’s time to wake up and look to Jesus to get right with God and live !

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

Do you HOPE or Are you EXPECTING ?

Hope is an interesting Word. It is used in the King James English Bible. A popular verse of scripture is found in (1Corinthians 13:13) “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” The question that comes to me is, is Hope really certain? Does it sound like your sure about it, or are you just Hoping it is? In Hebrew the word Hope means you know that God will do something because he has done it before, and he can do it again. In Greek the word Hope means to Expect something to happen. What ever it is that you want to happen. Like Jesus said in (Mark 9:23) “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” Perhaps a better translation for the King James’s 70 scholars, which took them ten years to translate the King James Bible into English from Hebrew and Greek, would have been to use the word Expect or Expecting instead of Hope which sounds more poetical and grammatically appealing. Remember Jesus also said in (Mark 11:23) “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” To me this sounds more solid and knowing and expecting and believing than Hoping. This expecting kind of faith is what pleases God more than just hoping what you pray for will happen. Like what it says in (Hebrews 11:6) “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” So may the Lord help us to not be wishy washy in our Prayers, but to be expecting and knowing that what we pray for is already done by faith not just hoping it is. (James 1:6-8) says “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” So have faith beloved when you pray and expect, and believe, and know for sure that it is done, and it is done. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”  (Jeremiah 29:11)

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

ARE YOU ONE OF GOD’S MINUTE MEN OR WOMEN ?

During the American Revolutionary War. There were a group of people called “The Minute Men”. They were expected to be ready in one minute to go to battle as soon as the alarm sounded and the Church bells rang, which meant that the enemy was coming, and the salvation of the nation was at stake if they were not immediately on the battle field to hold the enemy off long enough until the rest of the soldiers could get there. Are you ready to go when the alarm sounds? Well let me tell you, it has already sounded. “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” (John 9:4). “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” (2 Timothy 2:4). Are you ready to go, ready to stay, ready your place to fill, ready for service lowly or great, ready to do God’s will? Beloved let us ask the Lord to break our hearts for the lost who need Jesus and to help us see people as Jesus sees them. “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:36-38). This is your time, your watch, let us make the most of it.

Say this prayer 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

Choose this day whom ye shall serve!

   “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12).

The Democratic Party has become the Devils Party, in fact the Devil is the leader of it, and all the people that Vote for it are voting for his party. A vote for the Democrats is a vote for killing Babies, through their so called procedure of Abortion. If you vote for the Democrats your voting for killing babies, and your voting for the Godless Socialist which is really Communist & Anti-God. “The wicked shall be turned into hell and all of the nations that forget God.” ( Psalm 9:17). Those that vote for Democrats shall receive the judgements and wrath of God, and those that don’t vote are just as guilty. So get out and vote, don’t be a lukewarm, stuck in the mud Christian, get out and vote for the Republicans, thus saith the Lord.

Say this prayer 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

You Can’t Put God In A BOX !

“For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?” (Romans 11:34). “For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.” (Psalms 119:89). “For I am the Lord, I change not;” (Malachi 3:6a).

“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).

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” ( Matthew 24:35). The one thing God can’t do is go back on his WORD or change his promises, He has bound himself by his WORD ! He can’t send someone to Hell who has been saved even though He might be mad at them temporarily. This is one thing you can count on ! However you don’t want to get on God’s bad side, and make him angry. “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” (Hebrew 10:31). “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom:” (Proverbs 9:10a).

“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.  Like as a father pitieth his children,
so the Lord pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame;
he remembereth that we are dust.” ( Psalms 103:8-14). Someone who is not going the way you think they should go or live, might have a relationship with the Lord that might even be closer or better than yours, a relationship with JESUS is really the most important thing isn’t it ? Watch out when you judge people.

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. ” (Hebrews 13:8). But trying to figure out God’s way of doing things according to his will and promises in his WORD is impossible. If you want to make God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit laugh just tell them your plans. Gods way up sometimes is down and sometimes he turns things all around. “Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.” (Luke 20:18).

One of the problems with the Churches is they try to put God in a box and say he has to work this way, or that way according to their own understanding. “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” ( John 3:8). “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” (John 6:63).

Everyday can be a new lesson for us if you are willing and open to God’s will in your life. Life with Jesus Christ is fun and exciting and amazing adventure. Don’t sew your sleeping bag to your mattress ! The only thing you can be sure of is the LORD, Hard work, Perscution, and Constant JOY, when your following JESUS CHRIST THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD !!

Say this prayer 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

POWERFUL VERSES ON DISCIPLESHIP ! (PART 5)

“He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” (Micah 6:8).

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”(Romans 12:1-2).

“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).

“If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.” ( John 13:17).

“If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.” ( John 12:26).

“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:  and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. ” (Matthew 7:24_25).

“These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat. And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence. And when ye come into an house, salute it. And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.” (Matthew 10:1-15).

“Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; and ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you. And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come. The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10: 16-28).

“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” ( Matthew 10:29-39).

“He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.” (Matthew 10: 40-42).

Say this prayer 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
