Missionaries For Jesus

Salvation Class Part 1 (video& text)

 

Why we need to be saved:

  1. Romans 6:23  “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

  2. Isaiah 53:6 “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.”

  3. Isaiah 64:6 “But we all are as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”

  4. John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath ever lasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” The word BELIEVE comes from  a Greek word (Pisteuo) which means to take in and have confidence. We have to take Jesus into our heart, and put our confidence and trust in him..

  5. Revelation 20:14,15 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” If your born only once you’ll die twice, but if your born twice you only have to die once, unless you are alive at the Resurrection and Rapture, then you don’t even have to die once. ( If you have received Jesus Christ as your Saviour.)

                                                 How to get saved:

  1. John 3:16 “ 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.”

  2. Romans 10: 9,10 “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.”The Lord wants everyone who is saved to make a public confession of their faith. Mark 8:36-38 “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

  3. Ephesians 2:8,9 “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.” (GRACE is a Gift Received AChrist’s Expense !!!) Salvation = Grace+Faith+Nothing!

  4. John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”

  5. Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart. Will you let him in?

  6. Acts 16:31 “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

  7. Titus 3:5 “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;”

  8. Galatians 4:6 “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Ab’-ba, Father.” ( This is why we ask Jesus to come into our heart.)

  9. John 3:3-6 “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto to thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nic-o-de’-mus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” We need to be spiritually born again by asking Jesus to come into our heart.“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).

  10. I John 1:7 “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”

  11. Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.”

  12. John 14: 6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

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

Why we need the Old Testament?

Someone recently said, “we don’t need the Old Testament.” Well, that poor misguided soul who said that couldn’t be more wrong. The Old Testament has countless verses and true stories, and historical accounts that we can learn from. “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” (1 Corinthians 10:11). 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). “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8). “For I am the Lord I change not.” (Malachi 3:6a).So since Jesus is the Word ,and never changes, and is the same yesterday, today, and forever, we had better not dismiss the Old Testament,  because in so doing we are dismissing Jesus Christ. Jesus even said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:35). The Bible says, “Remove not the ancient landmark,which thy fathers have set.” (Proverbs 22:28). The Old Testament is full of faith building scriptures that you need to know and memorize. The Book of Psalms has so many encouraging promises that we really need today in our lives, not to mention the Book of Proverbs which is full of wisdom for everybody. Then you have all the Bible prophecies which are unfolding in our daily lives, such as the Book of Isaiah and Daniel, which we need to study and be prepared for the End Times. “And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: and others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.” (Hebrew 11:32-40). It is true that we are not under the Mosaic Law, but under Grace. “Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.” (Romans 7:4). We are dead to the law by the body of Christ, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t learn from it. There are even health lessons to be learned in the law. Jesus said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”  (Matthew 5:17-18). The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed, and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed. Without the Old Testament we couldn’t prove the New Testament through fulfilled Prophecy. Even the Old Testament Law had many references to Jesus Christ.  “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ,that we might be justified by faith.” (Galatians 3:24). So you see we really do need the Old Testament, and we can’t kick it out or ignore it, just like we can’t take out the foundation that our house is built upon. The Lord even had a shepherd find the dead sea Scrolls in 1947, proving that the Bible hasn’t been changed when they found copies of the Old Testament Books, which are said to be “supernaturally  identical to the King James Bible”. The Old Testament also contains the Genealogies which shows us how Old the Earth is. I hope this lesson will be a help to you and strengthen your faith and your desire to dig into the Word of God. “Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6).

 

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.

Wondrous Truths ! Some helpful Hebrew and Greek

 

 If you desire to learn more about the Bible, then it is helpful to learn the meaning  of some Greek and Hebrew words to give you a more in depth understanding of the scriptures. If you just want a basic understanding of the scriptures, then the King James Bible is the best for you to achieve that goal. Here are some important Hebrew and Greek words that you should know.

In Genesis 1:28 the word replenish comes from the Hebrew word “male or mela”, Which means to “fill”. See our teaching called ” ANOTHER FALSE DOCTRINE FROM THE DEVIL EXPOSED !” for a detailed explanation.

Did you know that when you add “im” (in Hebrew) on to the word God it makes it plural? (Elohim). So in the first chapter  where it says God created everything it is actually saying Gods, meaning God, and Jesus, and the Holy Spirit made everything together.
In Hebrew the word “Ruah” was translated into English as the word Spirit, and it refers to feminine, and the word Spirit in Greek is “Pneuma” which can mean either male or female. When the King James Bible was translated from Greek to English in 1611, it was during a time when blasphemers and heretics were burned at the stake. The Scholars  who translated the Bible were apparently afraid of saying that the Holy Spirit was feminine so they used the word ” he ” when referring to the Holy Spirit, instead of saying “she” as is clearly brought out in Hebrew. Also when Jesus was speaking in Aramaic ( the common language of his day) he used a pronoun “Paraclete” that meant feminine when referring to the Holy Spirit. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” ( Genesis 1:26,27). This verse also shows that God and the Holy Spirit are not some kind of vaporous gas, but an actual being, and that we look like their image. Many preachers say there is no hope for people in Hell, and that once you die and are not saved you are doomed forever to hell. This false teaching offends many peoples sense of God’s love, and mercy, and turns many away from God.  Some of those verses about eternity in the Bible actually come from the Hebrew word “Olam” meaning distant future or distant past, but were translated into English to mean forever. Also in Greek the word “Con ” means a time period. This word “Con” was also translated into English as  “forever”. So it doesn’t necessarily mean that hell and peoples confinement there is forever. A better translation would be for a time period. So those three days that Jesus’ body lay in the tomb, his spirit went to hell to give those people there another chance to get out by believing in him and accepting him as their saviour. 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;” (1 Peter 3:18,19).“For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” (Matthew 12:40). Why would Jesus go to hell when his body was in the tomb, and preach to the spirits in prison there if they couldn’t have another chance to get out? Praise God for his mercy and Love, which endures forever !!! This means if you have a loved one who died and you were not sure if they were saved or not, there is hope for them still, and they are not doomed to Hell forever with no hope of ever seeing them again, as so many churches teach. MESSIAH, is a Hebrew word and it means “The Anointed One.” The word “Messiah” means, “Christ” in Greek. Jesus was anointed by God in 26 A.D. to begin his public ministry and to die for the sins of everyone who will receive him as their Saviour. When John Baptized him, the Holy Spirit descended upon him.  “And  lo a voice from heaven,(was heard) saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.(Matthew 3:17). The word “David” in Hebrew means “The Beloved of God”, which is obviously talking  about Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament the prophecies in Ezekiel and Hosea, referring to “David” and the End Times are talking about Jesus Christ, and the Jews who will turn to Jesus as their Messiah, specifically the 144,000 of Revelation Chapters 7&14. “And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant DAVID; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant DAVID a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it. “ ( Ezekiel 34:23,24). “And DAVID my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant DAVID shall be their prince for ever.” (Ezekiel 37:24,25). “afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and DAVID their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.” (Hosea 3:5).For a clearer understanding of these verses, every place where it says DAVID just say” The Beloved of GOD“, who is JESUS CHRIST. The word “Week” found in Daniel Chapter 9, comes from the Hebrew word “Shabuwa”, which means a period of seven years. Study our class on Daniel Chapter 9 for a detailed understanding on this so very important subject. “NOW FAITH  is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).The word “Substance” comes from the Greek word “Hupostasis”, which means the “Title Deed”. In other words if you have the Title Deed to a property you know that you own it, and you can be sure it is yours even if you have never even seen it !” The word “Believe” comes from the Greek word  “Pisteuo” which means to trust and take in.You don’t really need to learn the whole Greek and Hebrew language to understand the Bible, but it would’t hurt, if you think you have enough time. If you just understand the Hebrew and Greek in this lesson it will greatly help you to understand some of these basic truths of God’s Word. Jesus said; “Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst, after righteousness for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6). The Bible says; “Open thou mine eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” (Psalm 119:18).

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

 

 

ARE YOU ONE OF GOD’S SHEEP?

Did you know that sheep are about the only animal that is totally indefensible they can’t run fast, they have no body protection, only soft wool, little small hooves for feet, no horns (to speak of) PictureofSHEEP or big sharp teeth. They are always running off and going astray, and getting caught in the rocks, and crannies and thorn bushes. They are totally dependent upon their Shepherd to protect them from the wolves, and other predators. This must be the reason Jesus used sheep to describe his people. “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:” (John 10:27). That is how you can tell who the sheep are. They hear his voice and they follow Jesus. Some sheep follow  the Shepherd from a far distance, and they are in more danger, and not as safe as the sheep who stick close to the Shepherd, “ I am the good shepherd: the good Shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one Shepherd. Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.” (John 10:11-17). “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6). “and before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left.” (Matthew 25:32-33). The Bible also says; “Woe to the Idol Shepherd that leaveth the flock! The sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be cleaned dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.” (Zechariah 11:17). “feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the over sight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.” (1 Peter 5:2-4). Are you one of God’s sheep, or one of his Shepherd’s, or a goat?

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.

HOW TO JUDGE A RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT

 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” (John 7:24). Remember there are always at least two sides to every story, and sometimes even more. The main thing is God’s side. God’s side is the right side. It doesn’t matter what I think or what anybody thinks. What matters is what God thinks. To determine this you must hear all sides of the story before you can make a righteous judgment after praying about it. Don’t jump to conclusions before hearing the other guys side, or you might be having to apologize and eat some humble pie. Walk a mile in their shoes before you judge them. “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.” (Isaiah 55:8-9). See the lesson on “Judge or Not to Judge”. This lesson is especially important if you are a parent or a person who people might respect or if you represent the Lord as an Ambassador of Christ, such as this story of King Solomon who was blessed by God with Wisdom and Righteous Judgment, because he pleased God. Solomon knew he was not worthy, and prayed the Lord God would only give him wisdom to righteously judge God’s people as the servant of God. “Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him. And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house. And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house. And this woman’s child died in the night; because she overlaid it. And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear. And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king. Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living. And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other. Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it. Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof. And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.” (1 Kings 3:16-28) This is just one example in the Bible of God giving Righteous Judgment to his servants. Seek to be more like Jesus Christ, God’s Only Begotten Son who was the righteousness’ of God. May the Lord bless you with wisdom and discernment, in judging others, even members of your own family.

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.

 

Why we use the King James version of the Bible

Recently my son James came over and commented on our website. He said how he really liked it and thought it was a great way to get the Gospel out to all the world as Jesus commanded us in Mark 16:15. He also said, “couldn’t we use regular English instead of the King James English, so maybe people could understand it better?” As I was praying about this later it came to me that maybe I had not taught him good enough when he was younger about why we use the King James Bible.The Lord also spoke to me and said “Come on, what is so hard about a few thee’s and thou’s and thine’s.” I mean really is that so hard to grasp? Also Fred said the same thing and even gave us a Bible that was not the King James Version for Christmas. He was just trying to do a kind gesture, but he didn’t understand apparently the following. Perhaps we can help others also to understand the reasons why we use the King James Bible which are as follows,but first let me share with you a little Bible History:

1.) The Old testament was first written in Hebrew, and The New Testament was first written in Greek.The Old Testament was translated into Greek in 250 B.C. under the reign of King Philadelphus of Greece. This is an established historical fact that is taught in all Colleges and Universities.It is called “The Septuagint“.
2.) The New Testament was translated in 1611 A.D. under the reign of King James in England. It was translated by 70 scholars and Theologians of the Hebrew and Greek language,and scriptures,and it took them ten years to finish this monumental task.This was accomplished during a time when heretics were burned at the stake,so they were extremely careful to not make any mistakes at all,and to get every jot and comma correct.
3.) This was done during a time when the English language was at it’s most perfect state of perfection, as God ordained.Not the slang English as we speak today.

(II Peter 1:20-21) “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation (that is, they did not originate with man).For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

(II Timothy 3:16) ”All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”God divinely inspired the original King James Bible in the most beautiful form of the English language.

4.) The King James Bible has stood the test of time.
5.) The King James Bible is said to be the most accurate (“supernaturally Identical to the Dead Sea Scrolls,”Which were found in 1947 A.D. near the Dead Sea, and were actual copy’s of the Old Testament on parchment dated 100′s of years B.C.”). The devil got into the translations of the other Bibles after the King James Bible and watered them down and left out scriptures and even changed some of them.Some even took out the virgin Birth of Jesus Christ.If you use some of these other translations you are just as good as saying “they are ok, go ahead and use them too.” God would not leave his children in darkness especially in these end times. Beware don’t let satan beguile and deceive you by these versions from the devil and Hell. I am sure you can understand and endure a few thee’s and thou’s to get the right spirit and interpretation from The Lord. Beloved this is not a light thing! This is very serious to God! You can do a study about this subject for more in depth information from the Internet. If these powerful reasons to use the King James Version of the Bible when quoting scripture are not enough for you. Why don’t you be like it says in Acts 17:11,“Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, because they searched the scriptures daily to see if these things were so.” In other words don’t just take my word for it,or be like the people who say ” I pay my preacher to tell me whats going on”, but check it out for yourself. That is why everything that I teach I back it up with scriptures, because the last thing in the world that I want to do is to teach something that is not scriptural, and in fact I ask everyone to please show me anything that I teach that is not scriptural and I will change it and make it known.You need to get it right and use the right version. God is not the author of confusion! The devil is, watch out !!! Here are some websites for a more in-depth study of why we use the King James Bible when quoting scripture and it’s importance;

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.

FROM CREATION TO ETERNITY (with Chart)

AGE OF THE EARTH CHART 

It is absolutely, and extremely important, that you understand when these events took place and the future events that are soon to happen so you can understand the Bible as you read it. Then you can say I know what that passage of scripture is talking about, and then you can accurately explain it to others.“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” (II Timothy 2:2). When you understand this class you will know more truth than all the ungodly universities and their professors put together.

1.) 4,220 B.C. Creation, and Adam and Eve. God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit accomplished this great feat in six days not millions or billions of years. You can not believe in the Bible and evolution. ” And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:26-27. This date can be calculated by adding up the years in the genealogies recorded in the Bible.(see the Age of the Earth Chart). God spoke creation into existence out of nothing. Adam was created out of the dust of the ground. “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Genesis 2:7.

2.) 2,565 B.C. The great flood. “And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.” Genesis 7:6 “And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the water from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.” Genesis 1:6-7. “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeeth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.” Genesis 7:11.The reason some people lived longer back then was because there was a water covering surrounding the earth that filtered out the ultra violet rays of the sun which causes us to age. At the time of the flood God removed it, and let it pour down upon the earth.

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.

SOMETHING TO SING ABOUT

Did you know that in  the Book of Psalms Chapter 136 it says”His mercy endureth forever” twenty six times? God loves you like a father loves his children. “Like as a father pitieth his children,so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.”(Psalm 103:13). “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassion’s fail not. They are new every, morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him .” (Lamentations 3:22-24). When the sun comes up every morning, it is like a sign from God that his love and mercy washes away our darkness and our past sins and short comings and mistakes by the blood of Jesus Christ. (I John 1:7). “For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.”( Psalm 103:11). “I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.”( Psalm 89:1). “I will  bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in thee Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”(Psalm 34:1-4).

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.

THANKSGIVING DAY PRAYER

Following a resolution of Congress, President George Washington proclaimed Thursday the 26th of November 1789 a day of “public thanksgiving and  prayer” devoted to “the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be.” Reflecting American religious practice, Presidents and Congresses from the beginning of the republic have from time to time designated days of fasting and thanksgiving (the Thanksgiving holiday we continue to celebrate on the third Thursday of November was established by Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War). In setting aside a day for Thanksgiving, Washington established a non-sectarian tone for these devotions and stressed political, moral, and intellectual blessings that make self-government possible, in addition to personal and national repentance. Although the First Amendment prevents Congress from establishing a religion or prohibiting its free exercise, Presidents, as well as Congress, have always recognized the American regard for sacred practices and beliefs. Thus, throughout American history, Presidents have offered non-sectarian prayers for the victory of the military and in the wake of catastrophes. Transcending passionate quarrels over the proper role of religion in politics, the Thanksgiving Proclamation reminds us how natural their relationship has been. While church and state are separate, religion and politics, in their American refinement, prop each other up.

 

Thanksgiving Proclamation

Issued by President George Washington, at the request of Congress, on October 3, 1789

 

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation. Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and—Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:” Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favor, able interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted; for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us. And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other trangressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best. Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

G. Washington
