Sacrifices

“So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.” (Luke 17:10) . You mean after we have done all that Jesus commanded us and even laid down our lives for him and the Gospels sake everyday, that we should say we are unprofitable servants, and have done that which is our duty to do? Yes, that is what Jesus said. “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.” (Psalms 51:17). Livingston, the famous Missionary to Africa when he was found by Stanley said, I have never made a sacrifice , compared to what Jesus did for me. “Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.” (Luke 7:47). How much have you been forgiven? It will show by how much you love Jesus.  For the love of Christ constraineth us;” (2 Corinthians 5:14a). 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). ” I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35). You just can’t out give God, he will top your sacrifice every time. “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.” ( John 3:16). ” But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.” ( 2 Corinthians 10:17).
A Sacrifice is something that hurts, or will cost you time, strength, money, and giving of yourself, doing something that your flesh does not want to do, but your Spirit does. Even if nobody sees what your doing, just remember that God, Jesus , and The Holy Spirit do.
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.

Where is your Treasure?

 

 the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. (Matthew 13:45-46)

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: (Exodus 19:5)

yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. (Proverbs 2:3-5)

that I may cause those that love me to inherit substance;
and I will fill their treasures. (Proverbs 20:21)

Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith. (Proverbs 15:16)

And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure.(Isaiah 33:6)

and I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. (Isaiah 45:3)

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: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:19-21)

A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. (Matthew 12:35)

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. (Matthew 13:44)

Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old. (Matthew 13:52)

If you think that you will find happiness, joy, or peace in some damned idol, or person, then you are going to be sadly mistaken, and seriously disappointed.The only way you will ever have happiness or peace is by putting the Lord Jesus Christ first in your heart.

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (Matthew 22:37-39)

 

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.

 

1 TIMOTHY 4

 

 

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: for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. ( These verses are specifically for the End Times. There will be a great falling away from the faith, largely due to the false hypocritical teachings of the Churches,and the school systems. The scriptures teach that forbidding to marry and not eating meats are doctrines of devils. This is a great slam blast to the Catholics and their doctrines of Priests and Nuns not marring, and also vegetarians not eating meat.)

If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. ( The Bible says that bodily exercise does profit a little, God help us to get a good balance between physical and spiritual exercise, which includes ,Prayer, Getting into the Word, and Witnessing.) For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

These things command and teach. Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. ( There are other things to be saved from besides Hell. We know from the scriptures that once you are saved, you are always saved. SEE: our classes on Salvation and verses to prove you can not loose your Salvation. You can be saved from being ashamed when we see Jesus. You can be saved from Gods chastisement, Hebrews 12:1-13 says, “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 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. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: for whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; and make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.”

 

 

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.

 

 

 

MAKE YOUR LIFE A HAPPY LIFE

Think on the good things. Don’t dwell on the negative things. Thank the Lord for all your blessings and all he has done for you. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”(Romans 8:28).“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”(Romans 8:31).“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” (Romans 8:35). “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:37-39). It is not a normal thing, or natural thing to praise the Lord when things aren’t going good. It is a supernatural thing. If you are always being thankful and praising the Lord your life will be so much happier. ” I will bless the Lord at all times:his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord:the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.” (Psalm 34:1,2). Jesus said, “If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.”(John 13:17). IT IS YOUR CHOICE, THE DAY IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT. WE AS CHRISTIANS SHOULD BE THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE AND MOST LOVING AND FORGIVEING AND KINDEST PEOPLE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. “These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” (John 15:11). Don’t let the devil steal your joy, today or any day. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.” (Psalm 51:10-12).

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

TRUST

The middle of the Bible says…” better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man”. Palms 118:8

This is really the main lesson in the Bible that the Lord wants us to learn. To love him and trust in him ever since Adam & Eve sinned by disobeying God in the Garden of Eden. They learned to know God in a different way by his love and grace and mercy.

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

“Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish form the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.” Palms 2:12

“And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee”. Palms 9:10

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.” Palms 28:7

“O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” Palms 34:8

“The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.” Palms 34:22

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.

 

 

 

 

JESUS CHRIST THE SON OF GOD

Someone once asked me “Where in the Bible did Jesus say that he is the Son Of God?

 “While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”  Matthew 10:5

 “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 1:4

 “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” 1John4:10

“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.” John 3:16

“Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: but when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.” Galatians 4:3-5

 (which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)  concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: Romans 1:2-4

“and the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.” Luke 3:22

I am glad I know the scripture, Jesus said; ” I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.” John 10:30-38

 

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 PRAISE OF MAN !

 

Oh how we so want and like for everyone to love and like us, and what we say. We want to be accepted and want to please everyone. Abraham Lincoln once said; ” you can please all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.” If you value the praise of man you had better catch it quick while it is passing, because it is soon gone. The Bible tells us “not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;  with good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:   knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.” (Ephesians 6:6-8).For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.” ( 2 Corinthians 4:5). “Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:  who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:  but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:  and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:  that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;  and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 4-11). Jesus said; “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” (Luke 6:26). “Yeah and all that will live Godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” (2 Timothy 3:12). So if you’re not suffering some kind of persecution at sometime from someone, then your not living Godly in Christ Jesus. “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19f 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). Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.  Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. (Matthew 5:10-12), Fame and Favor of man are fleeting. ” For neither did his brethren believe in him.” (John 7:5). Until after they saw him rise from the dead ! “But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.  And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.(Mark 6:4-6).  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: 34-39). “While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.  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 12:46-50). 

“He is despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:
and we hid as it were our faces from him;
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”

“He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
yet he opened not his mouth:
he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb,
so he openeth not his mouth.”

(Isaiah 53:3 & 7)

“How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? ” (John5:44)

So beloved seek not to please man, for it will neither satisfy or make you happy very long, but seek to please the Lord.

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.

 

 

Real Men and Women

Real Men Love Jesus ! Real Men act like Jesus, or at least try too. Real Men talk and live like Jesus. Want to be a Macho man? Want to be Cool? Want to be strong and Smart? Then ask Jesus Christ, The Only Begotten Son of God into your heart and follow him ! How do you do that? Read the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, they tell the way. Jesus’s way is the only way, to Love, Happiness, Joy, Peace,Power, Strength, and Success! “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”(Joshua 1:8). May we be more like you Jesus, today and every day. Girls, want to be Real Women? Be like Jesus and the Holy Spirit ! “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.” (Proverbs 31:10-31).

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.

WORRY NOT

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6). For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.” (Job 3:25). Most of the things I worried about never came to pass anyway.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.” (Psalms 127:2). He’s got the whole world in his hands. 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.” ( Matthew 10:29-31). Nothing happens unless God allows it, not one blade of grass dies, unless he wills it. So why worry about anything. Worrying is not of God it is a lack of faith and trust. If you want more faith just get into the Word. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17)  “casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” (1Peter 5:7).Sometimes you have to literally just THROW your cares upon Jesus. Que Sera Sera, what ever will be will be. What is that to thee? Love and follow me, Jesus said. “Follow me and I will make you a fisher of men.” (Matthew.4:19). You are not of the world but I have chosen you out of the world. Your life is not your own you are bought with a price. Perilous times shall come, men’s hearts shall be failing them for fear. Don’t let it happen to you. Get a hold of Jesus and hang on to him.

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.
