ONLY ONE WAY TO HEAVEN ! ! !

Someone asked; why do you have to always use the name of Jesus? Aren’t Buddha,and Hindu,and Mohammed,and all these other religions all trying to reach the same God? Well they are trying to reach their version of Heaven, but true Christianity teaches us that God is reaching out to man through his Son Jesus Christ, and not man through his good works trying to attain God and Heaven.The Bible teaches us “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”( Ephesians 2:8,9). In fact Jesus himself said “I am the way,the truth,and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”(John 14:6).These are God’s terms and conditions.”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).The fact is, that you could never be good enough to go to Heaven.“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;” (Titus 3:5). “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” (Isaiah 64:6). “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6).“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”(Jeremiah 17:9).“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23). Jesus said; If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.” (John 15:22). In other words if someone hasn’t heard about Jesus and what he did for them, then they are not accountable.That is why Jesus gave us the great commission to go into all the world and preach the Gospel,THE GOOD NEWS to everyone.(Mark 16:15).That is why we teach and preach and live in the Name of Jesus Christ! “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”(Acts 4:12).”The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”(I John 1:7b). Only through faith in Jesus Christ and his shed blood for you to take away your sins; can you go to Heaven, by God’s Grace. GRACE is a Gift Received At Christ’s Expense. You can never be to bad for Jesus to save you, only to good, by thinking that you could save yourself by your own good works, and that you don’t need Jesus.

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

THE YEAR OF JUBILEE !!!

http://youtu.be/1j4EU0QwVZ0

In the Old Testament of the Bible, every fifty years was called the year of Jubilee. The year of Jubilee was a time of Liberation, and celebration, and rest. During the year of Jubilee, slaves were set free, debts were forgiven, and people would go back to the land that they owned 49 years before, and land holdings were let go. This was to demonstrate that God ultimately owned everything. The word Jubilee is derived from the Hebrew word jobel, which means “rams horn” which was used as a trumpet to announce to everyone that the year of Jubilee had begun. Most everyone could experience a year of Jubilee in their lifetime.  And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. For it is the jubilee; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. In the year of this jubilee ye shall return every man unto his possession. And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour’s hand, ye shall not oppress one another:” (Leviticus 25:8-14)

 When Jesus was baptized and anointed by God and the Holy Spirit to begin his public ministry and became the Messiah which means the “Anointed One” the time of Jubilee was fulfilled.  And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” ( Luke 4:16-19). He came to set the captive and slaves free from sin and death.

Say this prayer to be saved and enter into God’s permanent Jubilee: Dear Jesus, Please come into my heart and forgive me of all my sins. I now accept you as my Saviour, the only begotten Son of God. I believe you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead.

 

PROOF THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD !!! part 1

 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: “ (II Peter 1:19). Peter who walked with Jesus and lived with Jesus and saw him do all his miracles: said that he had a more sure way of believing than all the experiences that he had with Jesus personally. The more sure way of believing that Peter had, and was talking about is fulfilled prophecy. There are over 300 hundred prophecy’s about Jesus in the Old Testament. Here are just a few: “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold,  a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14). Immanuel means; “God with us”. Jesus was born of a virgin: (Mary).And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,  to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.  And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.  And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.  And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.  And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:  and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1: 26-35). “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old,  from everlasting.” (Micah 5:2) “NOW when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,” (Matthew 2:1). Daniel Chapter 9 is one of the most important, and amazing prophecy’s proving that Jesus is the Messiah. (see our class on Daniel Chapter 9 ). Isaiah Chapter 53, is all about Jesus. I don’t see how anybody especially a Jewish person can read this chapter and not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God, the Messiah! Please read,and memorize this chapter, as it will greatly help you and increase your faith. The Jews took this chapter out of their Bible  because it is so obvious that it is about Jesus, however when they found the Dead Sea Scrolls in the year 1947 A.D., written down hundreds of years before Christ, Low and behold the 53rd. Chapter was there with the rest of the Book of Isaiah. For some reason the Jewish people  are really hard to wittiness to, and you have to really pray for them, because the devil really fights against their salvation.  “And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. ” (II Corinthians 3: 13-15). The Jews are always quoting that verse in Deuteronomy 6:4 where it says; “Hear, Oh Israel : The Lord our God is one Lord.” However in the Hebrew text which this verse was originally written in, the Hebrew word actually used refers to the plural meaning of Lord, which would be actually saying the Lord’s our God are one. Any time you add “im” on a Hebrew word it makes it plural. Elohim means the plural form of the word God. In other words the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, the Trinity are one in Spirit and Unity,and they are also three different persons. A better English translation would have been the Lord’s our God are one. Jesus said, “I and my Father are one.” (John 10:30). Jesus was not saying he was the Father, but that he was one in unity with the Father as well as the Holy Ghost. “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one.” (1 John 5:7). Jesus is the Word. “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 1:14),You can actually know Jesus and be closer to him then his disciples were, through studying, and faith in his Word and fulfilled prophecy, and though the Holy Spirit. The 12 disciples didn’t even believe on him (except Peter and possibly James & John) until later in his ministry and after his resurrection, but you can get closer to him by increasing your faith by studying God’s Word, especially Bible Prophecy, a more sure way of knowing, as Peter said.Let these sayings sink down into your spiritual ears of your spiritual being.The Bible is like a great jigsaw puzzle.The purpose of this web site is to help you put the pieces together. Please diligently study all these lessons.Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15).

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.

HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY !!!

“E’-li E’-li, la’-ma sa-bach’-tha-ni”? (Matthew 27:46). These words mean, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” That is what Jesus cried out to God his Father when he was dying on the cross for your and my sins. He couldn’t understand why God his Father had turned his back on him and had forsaken him. He was so used to having his Father be so close to him all the time, and at this time of all times, God his Father wasn’t there for him. He had to go through it all alone by himself. He did it because he loved his Father and because he loved you! I have heard many preachers say that God turned his back on Jesus because God is perfect and he can not look upon sins, when Jesus took upon him the sins of the whole world. The fact is ,yes God is perfect, but  God looks upon our sins everyday. “The eyes of the Lord are in every place beholding the evil and the good.” (Proverbs 15:3). We all deserve to be in prison and to go to hell, but The Lord had mercy upon us. Jesus could have called 10,000 Angels to destroy the world. I think God turned his back on, Jesus when he was dying on the cross, because it hurt him so much that he couldn’t take the pain of being there and watching what was happening to his Son for you and me. I can’t even imagine such love. Could you give your Son to die for a bunch evil wicked people who hate you, and are doing evil things? That is what God did for you and me. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have ever lasting life.” (John 3:16). What do you think? We should celebrate Easter just as much if not more than Christmas, because Easter stands for the Resurrection of Jesus Christ after he died for our sins which is what he was born into this world for. How about if we say Happy Resurrection Day instead of saying Happy Easter which  comes from the ancient Babylonians who believe a giant egg fell from heaven and  hatched the goddess Astarte (the goddess of fertility) by the Euphrates  river,hence Easter and the eggs.Today is the day that we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This really is the Holiest day of all for all Christian believers to rejoice in and be happy and thankful, even more important than Christmas! Today Jesus conquered death and the grave and through faith in him we can too. Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life. He that believes in me shall never perish! (John 11:25,26). Today is a good day to have communion and have a fresh start with the Lord, and a clean heart ! Today is a good day for us all to have a resurrection in our own lives and hearts and with each other and in our relationship with Jesus and each other, Amen? So celebrate and have a “Jubilee” today. May God Bless You ! ! !

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 BAPTISM NECESSARY FOR SALVATION ? (video & text)

Recently at the Goodwill store, we met one of Jesus sheep and she got saved. Her name is Ashley, and she wants to get baptized. We told her OK, and that we would baptize her. Is baptism really necessary? If you really think it is necssary then do it.. However the Bible says, “Though Jesus himself baptized not,but his disciples” (John 4:2). Baptism was a strong tradition back in Jesus day. Everyone who wanted to turn to God got baptized. Baptism came from purification rites from the Old Testament, and were carried  over by the early church, and even the church today. John baptized many people, even Jesus, fulfilling a great prophecy in Daniel Chapter 9 when Jesus was anointed by God to begin his public ministry. The Messiah means “The Anointed One”You would think that Jesus himself would have baptized people if it was so important. The water doesn’t save you, only the Blood of Jesus saves us. There are many verses that tell us that all we need to be saved is to believe in and receive Jesus, The word believe comes from a Greek word which means “to take in”. So you have to take Jesus into your heart. If at that same moment you get baptized, you take Jesus into your heart, then you would be saved, or by the very fact that you are showing everyone who sees you getting baptized that you are a believer, then that would save you. The fact is baptism is not necessary to be saved. It is an outward show of an inward spiritual change, it is a testimony of your faith to others. It can also be a personal experience between you and the Lord. “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: by which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:”(I Peter 3:18- 21). Some churches get a little carried away and teach that if you don’t get baptized then you can’t be saved. What if you were lost in the desert and there was no water any where? Also they teach if you aren’t totally immersed under water you can’t be saved. What if one of your hairs was floating on the water? So go ahead and get Baptized if you want to, but know this, that only faith in Jesus’s blood and believing  that he died on the cross for your sins, and rose from the dead will save you. “that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”(Romans 10:9,10).” Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all ?  Why are they baptized for the dead?” (1 Corinthians 15:29) .The Bible talks about being Baptized for the  dead. This is a common practice today of the Mormons. However Paul did not confirm this practice of  some in the early church. He simply mentioned it referring to the Resurrection. But the point is that there is hope for People who have died and were not saved. This is contrary to Baptist doctrine which teaches that once people die and are not saved they are doomed to Hell forever. Why did Jesus go and preach in hell to the spirits in prison if they couldn’t have a chance to get out and accept him as their Savior? (1 Peter 3:19). Jesus said, “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so also shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” ( Matthew 12:40) Jesus also said “Whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”(Matthew 16:19). He gave this power and authority not only to Peter, but to all of his disciples which is good for his disciples today.The rock was not Peter, but what Peter said about Jesus being the Christ, the Son of the Living God.“Jesus Christ the same yesterday,today, and forever.”(Hebrews 13:8) So be sure and use this power by praying for even dead people who were not saved, or if you aren’t sure if they were saved or not .“The Lord is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance.” (II Peter 3:9) . I don’t believe that our kind and loving Heavenly Father will be happy and satisfied until all of his creation is restored as he wanted it. The Lord lead me to go to a whole Japanese Cemetery and pray over their graves for deliverance and their Salvation. I didn’t need to get baptized for the dead Japanese peoples spirits. A prayer was good enough.They still have to make the choice themselves to receive Jesus as their Savor. The Lord might send you someday on a mission into hell to witness to the spirits in prison. Will you be willing? If Baptism was necessary for Salvation, then all babies who die and were not baptized would go to hell. And what about the thief on the cross next to Jesus whom Jesus told “this day you will be with me in paradise” They didn’t take him off the cross and baptize him and put him back up on the cross. People that say Baptism  was necessary for Salvation also say there can be no exceptions because if there were exceptions then it  wouldn’t be necessary. If someone says Baptism is necessary they are teaching a false doctrine, because they are teaching that a work must be performed to obtain Salvation, when the Bible clearly teaches that  Salvation is a free gift of God. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8,9).Therefore water Baptism is not necessary for Salvation. I have Baptized people before who thought it was necessary for their Salvation. Because I didn’t want them to stumble. Remember people can be saved at the time they get baptized. If that is what it takes to get people saved then use it. Don’t loose a soul over arguing about Baptism.

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.

JESUS IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

I am so glad that I found Jesus, aren’t you? Billions of people wake up in spiritual darkness every day not knowing the Light of the World, Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “I am the LIGHT OF THE WORLD and he that follows me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the LIGHT OF LIFE.” (John 8:12). You could be one of those people who worship cows thinking they are their dead ancestors, or one of those who make temples for rats and feed them before they feed their own children. Reincarnation teaches that when you die if you were a good enough person that you would come back as a better person or if you were a bad person you would come back as a donkey or a roach or some other critter. Reincarnation is a works religion. True Christianity teaches Salvation is attained by grace (Gift Received At Christ’s Expense), by accepting Jesus into your heart by faith. The Bible teaches that you only die once. “And as it is appointed unto man once to die and after that the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27). However the Bible does talk about the second death called “The Great White Throne Judgment”. This is a spiritual death when all the unsaved are resurrected to stand before God to be judged. (Revelation 20). So if you’re born twice (by being born again) you will only die once, but if you are born only once you will die twice. Some of you were saved at a very young age and were so fortunate because you grew up knowing Jesus, and his love, and his Word and truth, and didn’t have to grow up in the horrible darkness and pain and actual spiritual torture, and hell of not knowing Jesus. You have so much truth compared to so many who live in darkness. If people call me a religious fanatic, I take it as a compliment because they are actually saying I love Jesus more than them. Lord help us to see the lost of this world through your eyes as you see them. Give us your love for the lost. “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion upon 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 laborers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest ,that he will send forth laborers unto his harvest.”(Matthew 9:36-38). “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. 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 60:1,2).

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

 

 

Can you get saved again?

 

Thank God that he gives us Eternal security and not Eternal insecurity. Jesus said “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me, I will in no wise cast out.” ( John 6:37).There you have it from the Lord himself. He said he will in no way cast you out once you have come to Jesus and accepted him as your Savior. Once he is in your heart you are “sealed unto the day of redemption.” (Ephesians 4:30 ). “If we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.” (Hebrews 10:26). In other words you can’t get saved again. It’s like putting Jesus back on the cross if you say you lost your salvation, and “put him to an open shame,” (Hebrews 6:6b). Jesus Christ died once, not again and again. It’s a very serious thing to doubt your salvation or think you lost your salvation. It’s like saying, The sacrifice that Jesus made for you on the cross wasn’t good enough, if you have to keep yourself saved. Then why did you need to get saved in the first place if you have to keep getting saved over and over again and your own good works can keep you saved ? I would have to ask Jesus to come back into my heart many times every day if that were true, that I could loose my salvation. You might as well hide out in some monastery somewhere way off in the mountains, and try and keep yourself saved by your own good works, and that wouldn’t even work. “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities like the wind have taken us away.” (Isaiah 64:6). “For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God. Not of works lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8,& 9). “work out your own salvation, with fear and trembling.” (Philippians 2:12b ).This verse is one of the favorite verses used by people who preach that you can loose your salvation, but they leave off the very next verse which says, “For it is God that worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” (Philippians 2:13 ). “If I justify myself, my own mouth shall condemn me; If I say, I am perfect, it will also prove me perverse.”(Job 9:20).You don’t have to worry about going to hell, once you are saved. Remember it’s not your works that ‘save you, but you do have to work for your rewards. You can’t keep yourself saved anymore than you can save yourself in the first place. “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance;”.(Hebrews 6: 4-6a). It is impossible to be saved twice because you can never loose your salvation once you are saved ! “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”(Hebrews 13:5).There are a lot of wonderful truths that you can learn from these teachings, but this message is perhaps one of the most important of all !

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.

 

 

 

DO YOU STILL SIN AFTER BEING SAVED ?

Someone said that they don’t sin any more since they were saved, and received Jesus Christ and were born again. Well, let me comment on this statement and make it as easy to understand as possible. The best way I know of in how to answer someone is to give them the Bible Scriptures. The Bible says; “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” (I John 3:9 ). “His seed remaineth in him”, is talking about the Word which is Jesus Christ. “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 1:14 ).”The seed is the Word of God.”(Luke 8:11b ).We know that Jesus who is one in Spirit with God and the Holy Ghost being the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD, and part of the Trinity does not sin. “And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. “(John 8:29 ). Also the Bible says; “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” (Hebrews 4:15). “for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”(Hebrews 13:5b). Jesus will never leave you once you are saved, and Jesus in you does not sin and cannot sin. However our own spirits are also remaining in us and we still sin even though we are cleansed by the blood of Jesus. All of our sins have been washed away, at the time of salvation, but we will still have to answer to the Lord for any sins that are unconfessed to him, and that we have not asked Jesus to forgive us for which we have committed, after we are saved. Also if we have wronged someone else we need to ask them to forgive us too. Then Jesus will forgive us when we ask him. Someone once told me “ you always go around saying I’m sorry.” The reason I tell people I’m sorry and ask for their forgiveness, is so Jesus will forgive me, and I can be right with him, when I ask for his forgiveness. If people choose not to forgive you, then that is up to them and the Lord, at least you have done your part in asking. That is why the Bible says, “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).This verse is referring to the saved and the unsaved when it says “We must all appear”. The scripture also tells us, ” If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 1:8-10).  “If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.”(Job 9:20).Some may say; “Well this is the Old Testament”. We are not under the bondage of keeping the law to attain Salvation, but that doesn’t mean that we throw out the whole Old Testament, Jesus said; “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.” (Matthew 5:17). “For I am the Lord, I change not; ”(Malachi 3:6a). “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.”(Hebrews 13:8). Jesus Christ is the WORD, and he is also the Old Testament as well as the New Testament. Beloved we have to rightly divide the WORD OF TRUTH, and take all the scriptures on a subject and examine them under the light of God’s Word, to get a clear understanding. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”(2 Timothy 2:15). “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). Beloved the Lord wants you to get this right for your own sake, and so you can teach it to others. Here is a word of caution and warning from the Lord, Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”(Matthew 5:19). “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).This is very serious, and part of your basic foundation of Faith.The Lord wants us to Get It Right!

 

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.

A REVELATION OF GOD’S TRUTH ! ! !

 Thank the Lord that we don’t have to work our way to Heaven, and that our salvation is a free gift from God. “For by Grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works lest any man should boast.”(Ephesians 2:8,9). “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.” (Romans 11:6). Millions of believers if not billions are under this false teaching worrying if they died would their good works out weigh their bad works so that they might have a chance to go to Heaven and not hell ! What a bondage of fear. “And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” (Hebrews 2:14). You don’t have to live in fear of death like so many do. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32). Just knowing this makes it more than worth it all. We just need to work on our relationship with Jesus, and lay up treasures in Heaven by working on getting souls saved. Amen? I once thought, that people in Heaven could not witness and get people saved, and that only we who are alive on earth could do that. The Lord showed me that this idea was not true, because what about all the people that never had a true Christian witness, and a chance to receive Jesus as their Saviour and be saved? Even Jesus went and, “preached unto the spirits in prison;” (1Peter 3:19b) Jesus said, “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.” (John 15:22). In other words people that haven’t heard about Jesus and had a chance to get saved, will have a chance when they die, and who is going to witness to  them but the people who are in Heaven, and the Angels, many of whom have been the saved people here on earth, our departed brothers and sisters. They are going to be very busy in Heaven witnessing to the people that we failed to reach here on earth. “The grace of our God which bringeth Salvation hath appeared unto all men.” (Titus 2:11). WOW WHAT A REVELATION OF TRUTH !!! THANK YOU JESUS !!! We can never make a sacrifice compared to what Jesus has done for us. You can’t out give God. He gave his only begotten Son for you and me.

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 DIFFERENT LEVELS OF HELL

 Now let us learn about the different levels of Hell. People don’t like to think about this subject because it is too scary and they don’t want to go there, but the fact is that Hell is mentioned in the King James Bible many times. Hell is translated from several different names with various different meanings. In the Old Testament Hell was translated from the word “Sheol” a Hebrew word which means the place of the dead departed spirits. In the New Testament it was translated from the Greek word “Hades” which also means the grave, and place of the dead . Hell was translated 12 times from the Greek word “Gehenna” which means a place of burning, and once from the Greek word “Tartarus”, which means a place of darkness. Most people would just like to pretend that Hell does not exist, but that does not change the fact that it does exist. Jesus talked about Hell 16 times. “Sheol” used to contain a place called “Paradise” where the Old Testament prophets and Saints went after they died to wait for the resurrection of Jesus Christ, when Jesus came to take them to the Heavenly City, when he himself resurrected from the dead, after going to the heart of the earth to preach to the spirits in prison.Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.” (Matthew 27:50-54). This place “Paradise” still exists. It could be used as a place where some unsaved people go after death. Jesus told the thief on the cross who was dying next to him, “And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.”(Luke 23:43). “Hades” a Greek word is referred to as Hell, and “Gehenna” a Greek word is the Lake of Fire. It was named after a garbage dump called “Gehenna” in the valley of Hinnon near Jerusalem where they burned trash and dead bodies which died of Leprosy, and the fire never went out. So it is obvious that there are different levels and degrees of Hell and punishment in the after life for what a person has done in this life. The good news is that you don’t have to go to Hell. All you have to do to be saved from Hell is to receive Jesus Christ as your savior by asking him to come into your heart and believing that he is the Son of God and that he died on the cross for your sins and rose from the dead.”That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto unto salvation.” ( Romans 10:9 & 10).“And fear not them which kill the body but are not able to kill the soul, but rather fear him which is able to destroy both body and soul in Hell.” (Matthew 10:28). “And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire;”(Jude1:23a). Jesus said, “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”(Revelation 1:18).God is a loving God who wants everyone to go to heaven, in fact he loves you so much that he gave his only begotten son to die for you, and take away all your and my sins so we could go to his Heavenly City forever.Just by receiving his only begotten Son Jesus Christ into your heart, as your Saviour. Would you give up your only Son who you dearly loved more than anything, to die for somebody who is doing bad things and saying bad things that displeased you? What love. I can’t even understand such love. We will never know how much it cost to see our sins upon that cross. The dangerous false doctrine and teaching that people have to go to hell forever, sends many people to hell and turns them away from Jesus, because it offends their sense of God’s love, justice, and mercy. There is hope even for the people in Hell.“How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation;” (Hebrews 2:3). God does not send any body to hell. They send themselves by rejection of Jesus Christ as their Saviour. Jesus said, ” If I had not come and spoken to them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.” (John 15:22). People who have never had a true Christian witness about Jesus are not accountable. They will have a chance to receive Jesus and be saved when they die. Some Angel or some departed brother or sister will witness to them and they will have a chance to be saved. “The grace of God that bringeth Salvation hath appeared unto all men,” (Titus 2:11). Where are you going when your time on earth is up? Where are the people you know going? Where are the people you meet going? What are you going to do about it? 

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  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.
