JESUS GIVES US STRENGTH TO CARRY ON

Do you some times feel that you just don’t have the strength that you need? Why not try some spiritual strength from Jesus and his word. “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) “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” (Zechariah 4:6b) “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1) “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;” (Romans 1:16a) “He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.” (Isaiah 40:29) “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 15:5) “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Philippians 4:13) “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18) “The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.” (Exodus 15:2) “And Delilah said to Samson, Tell me, I pray thee, wherein thy great strength lieth, and wherewith thou mightest be bound to afflict thee.” (Judges 16:6) “Apparently Samson did not have a strong physical appearance because they couldn’t see where he got his great strength from. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12) “The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” (Proverbs 18:10) “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.” (Psalms 121:1-2)

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

The Blood of Jesus Christ (text) Part 2

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.” (Leviticus 17:11)

“And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.” (Exodus 12:13)

“For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.” (Exodus 12:23

“but now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.” (Ephesians 2:13)

“Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;” (Hebrews 10:19-20)

“The Veil of the Temple was Rent in Twain”, or torn in two by God when Jesus died on the cross and shed his blood for us. This signified the end of the animal sacrifices because the ultimate sacrifice, Jesus Christ, had been sacrificed. The veil was meant for sprinkling the blood upon it and when it was torn, there is no longer a need to perform this. We can now go straight into Gods presence through his Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ, by believing in him and his blood sacrifice for our sins.

In the Jewish temple, the veil served as the barrier to the Holy of Holies. The Holy of Holies was said to be where God’s presence rested and it housed the Ark of the Covenant. Only the high priest could enter this area, and then only one time per year, to make atonement for the sins of Israel (Exodus 30:10). 1 Kings 6:2 records that Solomon’s temple was 30 cubits high. This would have been 45 feet tall. The first century Jewish historian Josephus records that Herod extended the temple’s height to 40 cubits high, about 60 feet tall. He also records that the veil was four inches thick.

“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;” (Matthew 27:50-51)

“and to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.” (Hebrews 12:24)

“Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.” (Hebrews 13:12)

“Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,” (Hebrews 13:20)

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Revelation 12:11)

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 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

To Marry or not to Marry?

You should never marry the person you can live with, but marry the person you can’t live with out.

Marriage will cause some problems, but it most generally will solve more problems than it creates.

A single man is half a man, and a single woman is half a woman.

Ever wish you had 4 hands, 4 arms, and 4 legs? Get married.

Having children or adopting will help consolidate a marriage.

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? (Ecclesiastes 4:9-11)

“And the Lord God said,It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”(Genesis 2:18).

“And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”(Genesis 2:20-25).

The Lord made Eve, Adam’s wife, out of a rib close to his heart.

One day the Lord was walking in the garden of Eden with Adam, and Adam asked the Lord, why he made Eve so beautiful? The Lord told him, so you would love her Adam. Adam thought on that for awhile, then he asked the Lord, but why did you make her so stupid? The Lord answered him and said, so she would love you Adam. (Ha ! Ha !).

It says in Revelations 2:6 that Jesus hates the deeds of the Nicolatines. It is most commonly thought by many Theologians and Scholars that the deeds of the Nicolatines was their refusal to marry and have children.

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:(1Timothy 4:1-4).

How can any body lead or teach any body about raising a family with children who have never had any of their own, or even married?

If you have had a few bad experiences don’t give up, pray and put your request in to Jesus. Sometimes you have to get thrown a few times before you can learn to ride.

You need a partner to help you through this life.

Me & my wife both said we would never bring children into this world. Well we ended up with 16. If you want to make God & Jesus Christ his Son, and the Holy Spirit laugh just tell them your plans.

Behind every great man is a great woman. The man is the head of the household, and the woman is the neck that turns the head.

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be subject to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, that he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.”(Ephesians 5:22-33). Make sure you are both in agreement with these scripture verses or keep on looking, save yourself a lot of grief, but don’t wait to long for the perfect person because that will never happen. You better look deeper than the outward appearance.

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 IN THE WORLD OR OF THE WORLD ?

The word “World” comes from the Greek word Cosmos which means the established order of events or the establishment. Jesus said; “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. (John 15:18-20).”Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.” (1Corinthians 10:14,21).”I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” (John 17:14-16). This world is not our home we are just passing through. “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”(James 4:4) “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” (1John 2:15-18). “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”(Revelation 18:4). The Lord knows that you have to make a living and be in the world, but you don’t have to partake of the world and all the ungodliness and evil that is in it. Even Paul made tents for a time and reasoned with the Jews every Sabbath in the Synagogue until a couple of Disciples came down to were he was and he got convicted, of compromising and went to the Synagogue and told the Jews that Jesus was the Christ The Son Of God, READ Acts 18:1-6. It is a battle to not get sucked into this world and all of it’s deceptions. The devil is the prince of darkness and this world and is behind all the evil. “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. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”(Luke 4:5-8).”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). THIS WORLD IS THE DEVILS KINGDOM. Thank God Jesus Christ is coming to rescue us from this world in the Rapture which takes place after the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:29) , and before the 7 Vials of the wrath of God is poured out upon the earth. See our class on these chapters (Revelations 15-19). “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).

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

FORSAKING ALL

“So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.”(Luke 14:33). This is what the King James Bible says very clearly, not like some of the revised perverted watered down versions inspired by the devil that says unless you sit down and count all your blessings and renounce them, you can’t be one of Jesus’s disciples. I have forsaken all myself before a few times, and I learned that forsaking all for Jesus is a lot more than just giving up your physical possessions and family and friends. It is giving up yourself and your own desires and putting Jesus and his will first in your life. It is easier to get you out of the world then to get the world out of you. Forsaking all is a daily process of becoming more like Jesus and less like you. Actually you will never completely forsake all until you go to be with Jesus and even then we will be learning and growing spiritually and becoming more like Jesus even in Heaven. “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.”(Romans 8:29).”He must increase, but I must decrease.”(John 3:30).”And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”(Matthew 19:29). You must never put people down who are not as dedicated as you, but try to lift them up to a new level. “He drew a circle that closed me out, but I drew a circle that brought him in. “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”(John 8:31-32).”And they straightway left their nets, and followed him. And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.”( Matthew 4:20-22). “And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.”(Matthew 9:9).”Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”(Matthew 19:27-29).”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).”But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.”(Matthew 12:48-50).” Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, and said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great. And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us. And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, and sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village. And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God”( Luke 9:46-60). I hope this teaching helps you to have a deeper understanding of FORSAKING ALL There are many levels of Discipleship. There are 100%, 70%, 50% etc. Which are you? You are either a Missionary or a Mission Field. “What is that to thee, follow thou me.” (John 21:22b).

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

THERE IS A FAMINE COMING

“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land,
not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:
and they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east,they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.” (Amos 8:11-12)


 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).

“For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.”(Isaiah 60:2).

” Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. 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 12:12).

 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.”

 (Daniel 11:33-35).
“and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.”(Daniel 12:7b).


Never in the course of human history and conflict has so much of an opportunity been given to help so many, but so few choose to gain the ability to take on the challenge that has been set before them.

 
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” (Matthew 22:14).

Because few choose to be chosen.
You better hide the Word in your heart while you can by reading, and memorizing God’s Word. The time is coming when they will take it all away, and all you will have is what you memorized and hid in you heart.

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

THE GREAT COMMISSION

Have you Been Commissioned?

Do you know what the Great Commission is? It is the most important job in the whole world! We give honor and praise and credit to our Military, and Police, and Fireman, and rightfully we should, but did you know that God gives even more honor to people who take up their Cross daily and follow Jesus and preach the Gospel. The Great Commission is found in the Bible in (Mark 16:15) “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” Beloved this is not a suggestion but a commandment from our Lord and Saviour, and King of Kings, Jesus Christ. And in fact you have been commissioned if you are reading this now, or if you have ever read this verse. Being commissioned by Jesus Christ is the most important job of all, and the most fulfilling, the most fun, and needed job of all with the highest rewards, that will last forever. All the things of this life are soon to pass and only what is done for Christ shall last. What are you going to do with your commission? We will soon see our commanding officer face to face. Will he say to you, “Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter thou into the Joy of thy Lord?”  I have been amazed lately how that the Lord has made it so easy to get the Gospel out into all the World. There have been missionaries who have given all their time, wealth, strength, and even their lives to bring the Gospel to the unreached. Lately the Lord has shown us how to reach the world in such places as India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam,Thailand, and many more unreached countries for only $7.00 for 2 -3 days and 2-3 teachings out of www.answersintheword.com. Also you get to pick 2 countries at a time. Just this month over 50 thousand people have been reached, and many have commented, in fact so many that we can’t even keep up with all of them. We send them a letter, encouraging them and inviting them to continue on in www.answersintheword.comso they can get the full true message and counsel of God. We like to reach the unreached first. We start out with the Salvation message to each country, which is the milk of the word they need first, if you would like to help in this Commission just let us know, and we will show you how social media can help, and it even goes out in their own language. “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). “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).

JESUS SAID; IF YOU LOVE ME FEED MY SHEEP. (John 21:16-17)

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 Savior. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

HAVE YOU DONE THE WILL OF GOD ?

Has the Lord told you to do something, and you haven’t done it yet? Have you told the Lord you would do what he asked you to do?

Jesus said: “But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.” (Matthew 21:28-31).

Could these verses possibly be talking to you? Why not ask the Lord about it? ”And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” (Daniel 12:2-3). You don’t want to be ashamed when you get to Heaven every time you see Jesus and your other brothers and sisters because you didn’t do what the Lord told you to do, because you didn’t take the time.

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” (2 Corinthians 5:10). It is better to get it right and done in this life than to have to explain it in the next. If you don’t do it the Lord will have to raise up somebody else to do what he told you to do and they will get your reward and the Crown. “Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.” (Revelation 3:11). “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith” TO YOU !(Revelation 2:17a) For more information about this IMPORTANT subject please read “ How to Find God’s Will” in www.answersintheword.com

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

“ORDINATION”

Jesus taught Ordination. “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. “ (John 15:16,) Jesus said, “For many are called but few are chosen.”

(Matthew 22:14 ).The reason why few are chosen is because few choose to be chosen and answer the Lords call on their lives. How about you? It boils down to how much do you love the Lord and lost souls ? You shouldn’t want to be ordained for the praise of man, or for self glory or money. “not with eyeservice, as men pleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;” (Ephesians 6:6). “How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?” (John 5:44). However being ordained can be an inspiration to you and can help open some doors for you to preach the Gospel and save souls. How long will you wait to pick up your cross ? “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). “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). You don’t need four years of Cemetery , OH, Excuse me, I meant Seminary. “ Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. “( Acts 4:13).

SPEAK WITH BOLDNESS AND AUTHORITY !!!

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1). The Lord does not want us to be namby pamby, or wishy washy and lukewarm in our faith. “These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:14-16). So don’t be a lukewarm Christian ! “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4: 16). “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.” (Hebrews 11:6). Bold faith is the kind of FAITH that pleases God ! A word of caution, “Men of force are Men of faults.” Just make sure that what you are saying is backed up by scriptures, then go ahead with all Boldness. SEE: the teaching on “Meekness” in http://www.answersintheword.com/living-for-jesus/meekness/ for a good balance on this teaching . “Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.” (Isaiah 45:11). This is a powerful scripture. The Lord tells us we can command him according to his WORD ! I always say “As you said Lord in your WORD to command you.” People will listen to you when you speak with Boldness and authority like Jesus did. Ask Jesus to fill you with the Holy Ghost and give you power to speak the WORD with all authority ! You have got to speak like you know what you are talking about if you want people to really listen to you and understand what you are saying. “And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,” (Acts 4:29). “Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child. But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord. Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.” (Jeremiah 1:4-10). So if you think you are just to weak, shy, timid, mild mannered, and just not strong enough, then you should read these verses and claim them, and act on them !

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13).

And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.” (Acts 4:31).

and for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,” (Ephesians 6:19).

Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,” (Hebrews 10:19).

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.” (1John 4:17).

Never man spake like this man.” (John 7:46b).

And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.”(Matthew 7:28-29).

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
