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

MATTHEW CHAPTER 6 ( JESUS TEACHES US HOW TO PRAY)

 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.  Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.  But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:  that thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: but if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;  that thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

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. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

How to Find God’s Will

Are you trying to make a decision about something in your life? Would you like to know God’s will about it before you make your decision? The Bible says in Psalm 37:4 “Delight thyself in the Lord and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”.God gives the very best to those that leave the choices up to him.Jesus said “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”(Matthew 6:33).Sometimes the Lord will let us make different choices in his will. According to your faith be it unto you.”(Matthew 9:29b). Sometimes the Lord will allow us to make wrong choices to hopefully teach us lessons from our mistakes so we can learn from them and grow spiritually and help others not to make the same type of mistakes. In fact everyone of us affects others around us. Even Judas was an example of what not to do.The absolutely first and most important test is the Word of God. If it is not according to the scriptures in the Bible don’t do it. “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20). Here is the magic  formula to be prosperous and successful.“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), “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other Gospel unto you, than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8). The next way to know if something is God’s will for you, if you are not 100% sure, is to seek Godly counsel from people who you know,  who love the Lord and are living for him.”By their fruits ye shall know them.”(Matthew 7:20). Another way to know Gods will about something is by dreams,and visions,and prophecy’s.“For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man precieveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.”(Job 33:14-18). Another way to know God’s will is by open and closed doors, and circumstances, and conditions. “I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it:” (Revelation 3:8a). Many times The Lord will give you a strong desire to do something this can be  a way that God has of getting you to do his will. Just make sure it goes according to his Word. Sometimes you can ask the Lord for a sign or a fleece, like in the book of Judges when Gideon asked the Lord for a sign. (Judges 6:1-40). Just remember if it is already in the Word, don’t expect the Lord to give you a sign to confirm something because he may not. This should be the last way to determine Gods will in a matter. Remember all of these ways to find Gods will need to be backed up by the WORD which is our guide, our measuring stick, our compass and map, whereby we determine all things.Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and alight unto my path.” (Psalm 119:105)

 

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.

 

 

IS GOD A MIND READER ?

Yes, GOD our HEAVENLY FATHER, JESUS CHRIST, and THE HOLY SPIRIT do know our thoughts, and what is in our hearts. They are all Omni powerful, and Omni present meaning God’s Spirit is everywhere. “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.”(Psalm 139:7-12). THE FATHER, THE SON, and THE HOLY GHOST are also Omniscient meaning all knowing.They are so powerful, and all knowing, that they can read every ones thoughts at the same time, even the people in heaven, and on earth, and in hell. WOW, think about that ! “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” (Matthew 28:18).The Bible says, “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. “(Psalm 19:14). “And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?” (Matthew 9:4). Thoughts come from the spirit world, some are from God, and his Angels, and some come from your Spirit Helpers that are assigned to help you, and some from your own Spirit. You just need to discern where the thought is coming from. If the thought is good and to do good, then it is from God. If the thought is to do evil, then it is from the devil and his demons. That is why the Bible says;  “neither give place to the devil.” (Ephesians 4:27) “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, “(Hebrews 12:1).“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged 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 devil has some organization in his dark kingdom, and some thoughts are from the devil, and his demons who are assigned to hinder you, and trip you off and away from God and his will for you.The devil is not Omniscient. and can not read your thoughts.You can’t keep the birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from landing and making a nest in your hair. So it is, with thoughts from the devil and his demons.  When Abraham’s servant went to find a wife for Isaac, he said in his heart, Lord let it be the woman that brings water for me and my camel.You can read this amazing story in Genesis Chapter 24. “for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)  casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” ( 2 Corinthians 10:4,5). This is why it is good for you to memorize scriptures and meditate on God’s Word day and night. If you don’t you are really missing out.  “and thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.”(Isaiah 30:21). Just make sure that what you are hearing goes along with the Bible. “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”(Isaiah 8:20). Don’t let the enemy win the battle. God does not reward us according to our thoughts, but according to our actions. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.” (Jeremiah 17:9,10) “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;  and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; “ (Ephesians 6: 10-18). So since the Lord is always reading our minds and heart, and thoughts, and we can’t hide anything from him, that means we can always be praying and communicating with him.” Pray without ceasing.” ( I Thessalonians 5:17).  Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6,7 ). Be sure and take time to listen to the Lord. He speaks in a still small voice. “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalm 46:10)

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  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

HOW TO GET YOUR PRAYERS ANSWERED

With faith believing is knowing without having to see. Faith is not “seeing is believing.” “But without faith it is imposssible 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).“Blessed are they that have not seen,and yet have believed.”(John 20:29b).“Whom having not seen, ye love:In whom though now ye see him not,yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: (I Peter 1:8).“For we walk by faith not by sight:” (II Corinthians 5:7).When you pray for something, you need to have faith and believe it is done, even if you don’t instantly see it.“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.Therefore I say unto you,what things soever ye desire,when ye pray,believe that you receive them, and ye shall have them.” ( Mark 11:23,24). This is the kind of faith that God likes to see, and that he wants us to have.The word believe comes from the Greek word “Pisteuo” which means to take in. You have to take in faith into your heart, and really believe and not doubt no matter what,even if you never actually see it happen in this life time. You just know it is done no matter how long it takes to actually see it in the physical realm. You just know it is done by faith in the spiritual realm, and it is done now by faith, because you believe what Jesus said. You’ve got to stand on the word, and quote the terms of the contract (The Bible) to the contract maker (God), in the name of Jesus Christ, “The Only Begotten Son of God.”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 anything of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:6&7). Don’t be wishy washy, and on the fence with your prayers if you want to get them answered and past the ceiling. If you want to increase your faith get more into the Word. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17). Be like the Centurion in the Bible.“And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, and saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.” ( Matthew 8:5-13). Doubts are from the devil. They grow and spread like a cancer. Doubts are even contagious to others, like Zacharias the Priest who doubted the Angel Gabriel’s Word from God, that his wife would have a child when she was well stricken in age. Because he doubted he was not able to speak, until John the Baptist was born.(Luke 1:3-24). John the Baptist ( Zacharias son) after hearing the audible voice of God saying ” this is my Beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” When he baptized Jesus and afterwards doubted that Jesus was the one that should come, and sent his disciples to ask Jesus if he was the one prophesied as the Messiah to come. Jesus was so upset that John doubted him that he went out and did many miracles raising the dead ,giving sight to the blind, healing the Lepers, and many other miracles. He then told John’s disciples to go back and tell John what they saw. Jesus said that John the Greatest of all Prophets, who was to announce the Coming Of The Lord would be the least in The Kingdom of Heaven  because he doubted. You see how serious doubts are to God? It seems that John was effected by the doubts of his father Zacharias. Don’t let it happen to you ! Fight the devils lies and doubts with the Word like Jesus did. Study and get stronger in the Word eveyday !

 

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.

CASTING OUT DEMONS

” Yet Michael the arch angel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.” (Jude 1:9). Always cast out bad spirits in the Name Of Jesus Christ! The devil is afraid of the name of JESUS. ” he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. “( Matthew 10: 1b). This verse also shows us how sometimes unclean spirits can cause sickness and diseases. You can rebuke the devil and demons in the name of Jesus, but you had better have the faith to do it.“Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, and they fled out of that house naked and wounded.” (Acts 19: 13-16).This is what happened when seven people tried rebuking out a bad spirit but obviously didn’t have the faith to do it. Jesus said, “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out: and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.” (Matthew 12:43-45a). These verses show us how a person who has a bad spirit rebuked out of them can actually become worse by not being strong enough spiritually to resist any future attacks from the demons, or they really didn”t want to be delivered from the bad spirits. You can rebuke bad spirits out of people all day if you want, but as soon as you  are gone they will come back in their host seven times worse if the people don’t want to be delivered..So make sure you let them know what can happen if they don’t get strong in the LORD and his WORD and really want in their heart to be set free. One day Jesus cast out many demons out of two people, and commanded them to go into a herd of swine which ran off a cliff and drowned in the sea. “And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.”(Matthew 8: 28- 32).When Jesus cast out evil spirits, he commanded them to go some place so they wouldn’t just temporarily leave and then come back.We need to do the same. By faith command them to leave, and by faith command them to go some place like the bottom of the sea, in the name of Jesus Christ!

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.

THE NICE SLIPPERS

Once upon a time there was a kind elderly Grandfather. The high point of his day was when his Grand child would come and visit him. They would have a great time visiting and talking with one another. One day the child didn’t show up . The next day there was no visit either. This went on for quite a few days. The old Grandfather was brokenhearted. He just lived for that time of fellowship with his grandchild. Finally the child showed up bringing a pair of slippers. The child handed them to the Grandfather, he said my child where have you been? The young child told him I was busy making these slippers for you. The old gentleman said, I thank you my child for these fine slippers, but don’t you know that I would rather have had your company and fellowship? Isn’t this the way we sometimes treat the Lord. We get so busy in our work for him and helping others that we sometimes neglect spending time with The Lord our God our Maker and Master. God help us not to make a God out of God’s service. But to make time to pray and fellowship with him. Amen? Jesus said; “How often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not.” (Matthew 23:37). Jesus is asking, “Will You”?

 

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.

HOLD ON DON’T DOUBT

” 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.” (Mark 11:23). Got any prayers that haven’t been answered ? It could be because you have doubted in your heart. If that is the case just ask the Lord to forgive you and have faith that he will, and get back on track or like my Dad used to say “straighten up and fly right. “And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.” (Matthew 13:58). The key to getting your prayers answered is to hold on by faith even if you don’t see the answer right away, and don’t doubt in your heart. Just keep on believing. Or another reason you may have unanswered prayers is because you just have to be patient and wait on the Lord to work things out so your prayers will be answered. Just don’t doubt in your heart during the waiting time. Remember God is working things out for you behind the scenes. So don’t throw a monkey wrench into the machinery by doubting in your heart. Don’t leave school until the bell rings. Quote the terms of the contract (The Bible) to the contract makers, God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ. “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” (Mark 9:23)

 

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.
