POWERFUL VERSES ON DISCIPLESHIP ! (PART 5)

“He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” (Micah 6:8).

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”(Romans 12:1-2).

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

“If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.” ( John 13:17).

“If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.” ( John 12:26).

“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:  and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. ” (Matthew 7:24_25).

“These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat. And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence. And when ye come into an house, salute it. And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.” (Matthew 10:1-15).

“Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; and ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you. And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come. The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. 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 soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10: 16-28).

“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. Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. 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 10:29-39).

“He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.” (Matthew 10: 40-42).

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

HOPE FOR US ALL !!!

An Easter Message for all who need to be encouraged !!

DON’T COMPROMISE !!!

 

Don’t be Politically Correct ! Be Scripturally Correct ! “How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?”(John 5:44). Even if everyone disagrees with you and doesn’t like what you say just remember God does, So make sure what you say is from the Lord and lines up with the Scriptures. One with God is a Majority, If you have God and Jesus Christ & the Holy Ghost on your side you also have the greatest Army of Angels on your side, Commanded by Jesus Christ himself, and his top General Angels, Micheal & Gabriel. “If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Roman 8: 31b). “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: 38-39). “But Jesus did not commit him self unto them, because he knew all men. And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.” (John 2:24-25). “Not with eye service, as men pleasers; 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:” (Ephesians 6:6-7). “Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.” (Luke 6:22). “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” (2Timothy 3:12). So Stand up for the TRUTH even if it costs you, they that bear the cross shall wear the crown. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad. If they arrested you for being a Christian would there be enough evidence to convict you? Stand Up ! Stand Up for Jesus ye soldiers of the Cross, left high his royal banner, it must not suffer loss! From victory to victory. His Army shall he lead, till every foe is vanquished, and Christ is Lord in deed.!!!

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.

 

 

ANOTHER FALSE DOCTRINE FROM THE DEVIL EXPOSED !

There is a false teaching going around about a former race of people who lived on the earth before Adam. This is a dangerous false doctrine straight from the devil himself. Another one of his lies to try and belittle the importance of Jesus Christ, and justify the lie of evolution, which teaches the earth is millions of years old, This false doctrine teaches that the world was wiped out by a flood called the flood of lucifer and that the entire human race was wiped out before Adam. They base their lie on a misrepresentation of  (Genesis 1:28) which says; “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply,and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Actually the word replenish comes from the original Hebrew word “male, or mala”,which means to fill. This verse was originally written in Hebrew. God told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth, which they started and we have been helping to fulfill that commandment ever since, for a little over 6000 years.( See: The Age of The Earth Chart) The Bible says “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth,” and it goes on to say he finished all of his creation in 6 days including Adam, and God rested on the seventh DAY! (Geneses Chapter 1). “And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul;”  (I Corinthians 15:45a).In the book of (Luke Chapter 3) it gives an account of all Jesus relatives all the way back to Adam. Do you see how important it is to know the Word to fight the lies of the devil, and rightly divide the word of truth? (II Timothy 2:15). For a more in depth research into this subject look up “Replenish in Hebrew” on the internet. This lesson came about from a question from a new dear brother,and student to this web site, named Chris.

True Love for the Lost (video & text)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJrRcTDejLk&feature=youtu.be

 

Faith is so very important to the Lord. “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 to them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6).Faith comes by hearing the Word of God.(Romans 10: 17).It is just that simple if you want more faith get into the WORD more, you need strong faith to get by in this world today.Take the shield of faith, and the sword of the spirit which is the Word of God .(Ephesians 6). Make sure your sword is good and strong, and good and sharp. You don’t want to go into heavy combat with a little brittle dull sword. So take time everyday to read the Word and review and memorize, because you know a battle is coming. There are storm clouds on the horizon. So be prepared. Remember though, the greatest gift: is Love. If we have all faith so that we can remove mountains and have not love we are nothing! (1 Corinthians 13). So pray for Love most of all. Love for God and love for the lost. Be sure and bring our Bible and some tracts to give out every day. Jesus will bring his sheep along your path. “If ye love me feed my sheep, if ye love me feed my lambs, If ye love me feed my sheep.” (John 21: 15-17) ).

Ambassadors of Christ (video & text)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLPR3mPfGPw&feature=youtu.be

Are we supposed to be concerned about the opinions of man? Yes, we are supposed to be concerned about what people think about us! why? Because we are supposed to be Ambassadors of Jesus Christ, and represent him to the world. And also no, we are not supposed to be concerned about what people think about us or the opinions of man when it comes to preaching the Gospel and standing up for Jesus and the truth. When Jesus spoke, people were either, mad, sad, or glad. “Not with eye service as men pleasers but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart: “(Ephesians 6: 6). If the praise of man is important to you, you had better catch it quick while it is passing because it is soon gone. “NOW when they saw the BOLDNESS of Peter and John and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them that they had been with Jesus.”(Acts 4:13).“And it came to pass when Jesus had ended all these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” (Matthew 7:28,29). Ask Jesus to give you the power of the Holy Ghost to teach and preach with AUTHORITY!  “THE wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1).  “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you, and ye shall be wittness unto  me, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judae’-a, and Sa-ma’-ri-a, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8).
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.

WE HAVE A LOVING GOD

I am so glad that we have a loving God who is trying to love everyone into Heaven and not trying to frighten and send everyone into hell with a big strike of lightning. God loves us so much that he gave his only begotten Son to die for our sins, so that we could go to Heaven. Would you give your only son whom you dearly love to die so some evil person could live? God did this for you! I can’t even conceive of such love ,can you? Think about it. We need to pray for these poor souls and try and witness to them and reach out to them with Jesus’s love. They are so eaten up with hate, and anger, and have been taught to be this way from a small child. It was prophesied in the Bible that Ishmael, the father of the Arabs, whose father was Abraham, that he would be a wild man, and every mans hand would be against him, and his hand would be against every man. This was apparently passed down through the generations, and is certainly being fulfilled today. (Genesis 16:11,12). Remember, Jesus said, “the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.” (John 16:2b). Beloved we are entering into perilous times and we need to get, and stay close to the Lord, and become strengthened by His Word. “THIS KNOW also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blashemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more that lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”(II Timothy 3:1-7).There shall come a great falling away.  “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things?”(II Thessalonians 2:3-5).” But they that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits.”(Daniel 11:32). “LET NOT your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”(John 14:1). “for all these things must come to pass.”(Matthew 24:6). “Love your enemies,bless them that curse you ,do good to them that hate you,and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your father which is in Heaven:”(Matthew 5:44,45 ). May we always be known for our love for Jesus, and the lost. We are supposed to love the sinner and hate the sin, Amen? If you have a hard time loving someone, ask Jesus to help you see them through his eyes.”for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” (I Samuel 16:17b). “Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgement.” (John 7:24 ). “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest “ (Matthew 9:36-38).”Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” (1 John 4:7,8). The Loving way is the best way. Ask Jesus to fill you with his love. Are you a person after God’s own heart ?

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

 

 

YOU SAY YOU LOVE MY JESUS?

You say you love my Jesus,but do you really know him? He’s a Shepherd weeping bitterly, yes he is weeping for his children, is the servant above his Master, is my Jesus real in you? He was a man of sorrows why aren’t you weeping too ? Do you seek his face redeemed by grace, secluded in your blessing? As we seek our own, lost children roam and Jesus goes on weeping.  But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truely is plenteous, but the labourers are few.Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:36,-38.).Will you hear the Lords call,and answer his prayer? Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off. “(Isaiah 55:6-13).  “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!“(Isaiah 52:7).Won’t you seek him today, won’t you let him show you the way. His love and compassions fail not, his promises are true. Reach out by faith and receive the gift of your calling and anointing. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.” (John 4:35).

 

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.

WHOM SO EVER WILL, LET HIM COME

Jesus said; “And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”(Revelation 22:17).You know the old saying you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink. Jesus does not force himself on anyone. He wants us to come to him from our own free will. I have been learning that lesson lately. I so want everyone to come to Jesus and live for him, but most don’t really want to. I guess they just want to use Jesus as a fire escape and not help many others if any out of the burning building as long as they just get themselves out. You want your children to all serve the Lord and you pour into them over the years and want them to turn out to be flaming evangelists, but it doesn’t always turn out like that. Maybe that is why Jesus cursed the fig tree which is symbolic of Israel. When he came to it to see if there were any figs on it or fruit and found none he cursed it and it dried up and withered. Here in America it is like finding a needle in a hay stack, if you can find anyone who is sheepy and hungry for the truth of the Word .Most are indifferent. Can you imagine what would have happened if the Disciples hadn’t immediately left their boats and their father and followed Jesus? They would have disappeared and fallen into oblivion never to be heard of or accomplish anything, but instead they went on to change the world and will be great in heaven forever and even have their names written on the twelve foundations of the Holy City. “And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.”(Revelation 21:12-14). God’s word says; “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). Jesus said;  “ For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” (Matthew 23:39) ” He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life,and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.”(John 3:36).“ For many are called, but few are chosen.” ( Matthew 22:14),( because so few choose to be chosen).This message was not meant to be a discouragement, but a challenge. Some lights are bright street lights, some light bulbs are 60 watt, some are 40 watt, some are 20 watt, some are 5 watt, and then you have Christmas tree lights, even Christmas tree lights can be seen along ways off in total darkness.Too bad some people aren’t ready yet. I guess they believe they have all the time in the world. Maybe they need to have more of the school of hard knocks. “Then said Jesus unto his disciples; ” 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.) Who or what do you love most?
