The Real World

This world is not our home. We are just passing through on our journey of life to our real everlasting Heavenly world. All the things that you can touch and see and taste are only temporary and won’t last long. We are just a vapor compared to Eternity. “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.” (Hebrews 11:13-16). “while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:18). “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” (Colossians 3:2).

“Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations;” (Psalms 49:11a). Knowing all this shouldn’t we be preparing more for our Eternal existence? “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:” (Matthew 6:19-20). How do we lay up treasures in Heaven ? By winning Souls to Jesus, and helping the Missionaries to win them to Jesus. They will be our brothers and sisters forever in the Kingdom of Heaven. It is hard to find a real Missionary who is teaching the truth. I suggest you hitch your wagon to www.answersintheword.com. and help spread the truth of the Word of God to the World. “For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.”(Acts 20:27). It has taken me 50 years to put the pieces of the puzzle of the Bible together for you by the grace and help and leading of the Holy Spirit, and here it is on a sliver platter for you. You don’t need to re-invent the wheel just start rolling with it. For the time is short. Jesus is coming and it won’t be long ! The Spirit World is real, in fact it is the only real World that counts. “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). “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. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”(Ephesians 6:12-13). Be a fighter for Jesus in the Spirit, not a physical fighter in the flesh, (and for what?) If you can receive this then Blessed are you! “whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”(James 4:14). “And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19). “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.” (Luke 9:23-24). Will he say unto you, “Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter into the JOY of thy Lord.” Read Matthew 25:21&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.

Growing In The Lord, And In The Spirit

The Lord knows we should be making some progress. But what is progress and Spiritual growth in his sight ? Spiritual growth is growing in the Lord. Most of all it is becoming more like Jesus and becoming more loving, and more merciful, and more forgiving. If we could only realize how important forgiveness is and not only forgiving but forgetting like God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit, and the people in Heaven do. We only hurt ourselves when we don’t forgive and forget because the way we  treat others is how we will be treated. Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.” (Matthew 7:1-5). It is like the Boomerang, it comes back to us when we throw it out. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7). If we are only forgiven like the way we  forgive, then I am afraid that some of us are going to be in bad shape when that day comes. (SEE: Matthew 6:12). He that can not forgive breaks down the bridge that he must cross over himself. “He must increase, but I must decrease”.(John 3:30). Spiritual progress is how much different we are this week compared to what we were like last week, or how much more like Jesus we are today than yesterday. People should say, “WOW, you sure have changed since the last time I saw you.” You can be a new person everyday in Jesus, by simply yielding to the Lord and the Holy Spirit.This comes from Prayer and getting into the Word. “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13).“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). Try it !! It will make you happier. “If you know these things happy are ye if you do them.” (John 13:17). You can’t grow if you try to live on a little teaspoon of food every Sunday Morning. ARE YOU GROWING SPIRITUALLY, OR ARE YOU STUNTING YOUR GROWTH ? God sees things different than man sees things. 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).

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.
