ARE YOU A PERSON AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART?

In the Bible it was said of King David that he was a man after God’s own heart. “And afterward they desired a king: and God gave unto them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years. And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill all my will. Of this man’s seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus:” (Acts 13:21-23). However some people wouldn’t be able to tell it by some of the things he did and the way he lived. He sent Uriah The Hittite to be killed on the front lines of Battle so he could take his wife Bath-Sheba,which God severely judged him for. But David repented and turned to the Lord instead of getting bitter he got better because he knew the Lord’s mercy and had faith in his forgiveness. Read this history in the Book of 2 Samuel chapter11. (King David wrote The Book of Psalms), In Psalms 136:1-27 it says God’s mercy endures Forever in each verse 27 times.

Don’t you want to be a man or woman after God’s own heart and receive of his mercy,love, and forgiveness? King David knew how to get desperate in prayer with God and even change Gods mind.

The Lord has mightily used men and women who have made great mistakes and committed many sins in the Bible because they had great repentance’s such as Samson, Solomon, and Paul who even killed Christians until God knocked him off his horse and he got saved. Has God knocked you off your high horse? So if you want to be a person after God’s own heart just read their stories in the Bible. The Lord even told Isaiah to walk around naked and Ezekiel to lay on his side and eat dung, and Hosea to marry a harlot to show the people how they were making the Lord feel.

So be a man or woman after God’s own heart if you dare, and see how great God’s love and mercies really are.

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.

WHAT ARE YOU SEEKING ?

Everyone is seeking for something whether they will admit it or not.

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)

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

“But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.” (Luke 18:16).

Jesus said; that little children were of the Kingdom of God. In fact you can’t go to heaven unless you become as a little child, and be born again. “And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:2-3).

So since Jesus said about little children, to forbid them not for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven, and he also said to seek first the kingdom of Heaven and then all these things shall be added unto you. So if you are putting having children on the back burner and your wants and desires before what God desires then watch out, you don’t want to displease the Lord.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” (1 Peter 5:8) Even the devil is seeking to devour YOU !

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: (Isaiah 55:6). Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually. (1Chronicals 16:11).

So if your seeking anything except Jesus and his Kingdom first which surely includes children, then your wasting your time and are going down the wrong path. He that is able to receive this message let him receive it.

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

CARRY YOUR CROSS WITH JOY

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.” (Hebrews 12:1-4). It says endure the cross with joy. How could Jesus carry his cross with joy? Because he was doing it out of love for his Father and us. Has the Lord given you a cross to bare? Ask him to help you bare it with joy. The Lord loves a cheerful giver. The joy of the Lord is your strength. They that bare the cross shall receive the crown. No triumph without a trial, no testimony with out a test. No victory without a battle. God spoke to Moses and said; What is that in thy hand? If the Lord put a child in your hand this is your responsibility to God, this is your cross. You can carry this cross with joy and receive a crown, or carry it with grief and murmur and complain and miss the blessing that the Lord wants to give you and actually bring on God’s judgments and chastisements upon you, and hurt all that are around you. This you will have to answer for and you will receive a great reward for teaching and training that little child that Jesus has given you, his little sheep that you have been made a Shepherd or Shepherdess of, if you love me feed my sheep. “He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed My Sheep.” (John 21:17). THIS IS YOUR MAIN JOB ! “And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” (Daniel 12:2-3). 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). So don’t complain, but pick up the cross which the Lord has laid before you, and follow Jesus and do your best for him. Even if your cross is heavy and has splinters, do it now. Now today before the opportunity is gone hold that fast which thou hast let no man steal thy crown. This message is for you. If God has placed children in your care. “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). “But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.” (Mark 10:14).“And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”(Luke 9:57-62). “for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10b).

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

Forgiveness

“If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.” (Psalms 130:3-5).

For a better understanding read the whole chapter of Psalms 130.

“To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against him;” (Daniel 9:9).

For a better understanding read Daniel 9:1-19. This is a very powerful prayer.

“Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: but he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.” (Mark 3:28-30).“Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.” (Matthew 12:31-32). In the light of all the other verses which teach us that we can not loose our salvation, this verse can only mean that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is rejection of Jesus Christ, because the blood of Jesus cleanses from ALL sins. “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.” (I John 1:7). Also the Holy Spirits main job is to lead people to Jesus, but does not forgive sins. God made it so that the only way to get to him and have our sins removed is to come through his only begotten Son Jesus Christ. “Jesus saith unto him; I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” ( John 14:6).

“The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.” (Acts 5:30-32).

For a better understanding read the whole chapter of Acts 5

“but he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption. Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: and by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.” (Acts 13:37-39)

“to open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” (Acts 6:18).

“to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. in whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;” (Ephesians 1:6-8)

“and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” (Ephesians 4:32). Forgiveness is very serious with God and Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. The boomerang will come back to you if you don’t forgive and forget, as you want Jesus to do to you. If you harbor unforgiveness in your heart you are swallowing a poison from the devil that will kill and destroy you. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7).

“who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: in whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:” (Colossians 1:13-15)

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

JESUS GIVES US STRENGTH TO CARRY ON

Do you some times feel that you just don’t have the strength that you need? Why not try some spiritual strength from Jesus and his word. “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life”. (John 6:63) “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” (Zechariah 4:6b) “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1) “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;” (Romans 1:16a) “He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.” (Isaiah 40:29) “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:5) “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Philippians 4:13) “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18) “The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.” (Exodus 15:2) “And Delilah said to Samson, Tell me, I pray thee, wherein thy great strength lieth, and wherewith thou mightest be bound to afflict thee.” (Judges 16:6) “Apparently Samson did not have a strong physical appearance because they couldn’t see where he got his great strength from. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12) “The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” (Proverbs 18:10) “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.” (Psalms 121:1-2)

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

The Blood of Jesus Christ (text) Part 2

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.” (Leviticus 17:11)

“And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.” (Exodus 12:13)

“For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.” (Exodus 12:23

“but now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.” (Ephesians 2:13)

“Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;” (Hebrews 10:19-20)

“The Veil of the Temple was Rent in Twain”, or torn in two by God when Jesus died on the cross and shed his blood for us. This signified the end of the animal sacrifices because the ultimate sacrifice, Jesus Christ, had been sacrificed. The veil was meant for sprinkling the blood upon it and when it was torn, there is no longer a need to perform this. We can now go straight into Gods presence through his Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ, by believing in him and his blood sacrifice for our sins.

In the Jewish temple, the veil served as the barrier to the Holy of Holies. The Holy of Holies was said to be where God’s presence rested and it housed the Ark of the Covenant. Only the high priest could enter this area, and then only one time per year, to make atonement for the sins of Israel (Exodus 30:10). 1 Kings 6:2 records that Solomon’s temple was 30 cubits high. This would have been 45 feet tall. The first century Jewish historian Josephus records that Herod extended the temple’s height to 40 cubits high, about 60 feet tall. He also records that the veil was four inches thick.

“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;” (Matthew 27:50-51)

“and to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.” (Hebrews 12:24)

“Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.” (Hebrews 13:12)

“Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,” (Hebrews 13:20)

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Revelation 12:11)

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

To Marry or not to Marry?

You should never marry the person you can live with, but marry the person you can’t live with out.

Marriage will cause some problems, but it most generally will solve more problems than it creates.

A single man is half a man, and a single woman is half a woman.

Ever wish you had 4 hands, 4 arms, and 4 legs? Get married.

Having children or adopting will help consolidate a marriage.

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? (Ecclesiastes 4:9-11)

“And the Lord God said,It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”(Genesis 2:18).

“And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”(Genesis 2:20-25).

The Lord made Eve, Adam’s wife, out of a rib close to his heart.

One day the Lord was walking in the garden of Eden with Adam, and Adam asked the Lord, why he made Eve so beautiful? The Lord told him, so you would love her Adam. Adam thought on that for awhile, then he asked the Lord, but why did you make her so stupid? The Lord answered him and said, so she would love you Adam. (Ha ! Ha !).

It says in Revelations 2:6 that Jesus hates the deeds of the Nicolatines. It is most commonly thought by many Theologians and Scholars that the deeds of the Nicolatines was their refusal to marry and have children.

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:(1Timothy 4:1-4).

How can any body lead or teach any body about raising a family with children who have never had any of their own, or even married?

If you have had a few bad experiences don’t give up, pray and put your request in to Jesus. Sometimes you have to get thrown a few times before you can learn to ride.

You need a partner to help you through this life.

Me & my wife both said we would never bring children into this world. Well we ended up with 16. If you want to make God & Jesus Christ his Son, and the Holy Spirit laugh just tell them your plans.

Behind every great man is a great woman. The man is the head of the household, and the woman is the neck that turns the head.

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be subject to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, that he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.”(Ephesians 5:22-33). Make sure you are both in agreement with these scripture verses or keep on looking, save yourself a lot of grief, but don’t wait to long for the perfect person because that will never happen. You better look deeper than the outward appearance.

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 IN THE WORLD OR OF THE WORLD ?

The word “World” comes from the Greek word Cosmos which means the established order of events or the establishment. Jesus said; “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. (John 15:18-20).”Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.” (1Corinthians 10:14,21).”I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” (John 17:14-16). This world is not our home we are just passing through. “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”(James 4:4) “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” (1John 2:15-18). “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”(Revelation 18:4). The Lord knows that you have to make a living and be in the world, but you don’t have to partake of the world and all the ungodliness and evil that is in it. Even Paul made tents for a time and reasoned with the Jews every Sabbath in the Synagogue until a couple of Disciples came down to were he was and he got convicted, of compromising and went to the Synagogue and told the Jews that Jesus was the Christ The Son Of God, READ Acts 18:1-6. It is a battle to not get sucked into this world and all of it’s deceptions. The devil is the prince of darkness and this world and is behind all the evil. “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”(Luke 4:5-8).”For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”(Ephesians 6:12). THIS WORLD IS THE DEVILS KINGDOM. Thank God Jesus Christ is coming to rescue us from this world in the Rapture which takes place after the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:29) , and before the 7 Vials of the wrath of God is poured out upon the earth. See our class on these chapters (Revelations 15-19). “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).

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

FORSAKING ALL

“So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.”(Luke 14:33). This is what the King James Bible says very clearly, not like some of the revised perverted watered down versions inspired by the devil that says unless you sit down and count all your blessings and renounce them, you can’t be one of Jesus’s disciples. I have forsaken all myself before a few times, and I learned that forsaking all for Jesus is a lot more than just giving up your physical possessions and family and friends. It is giving up yourself and your own desires and putting Jesus and his will first in your life. It is easier to get you out of the world then to get the world out of you. Forsaking all is a daily process of becoming more like Jesus and less like you. Actually you will never completely forsake all until you go to be with Jesus and even then we will be learning and growing spiritually and becoming more like Jesus even in Heaven. “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.”(Romans 8:29).”He must increase, but I must decrease.”(John 3:30).”And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”(Matthew 19:29). You must never put people down who are not as dedicated as you, but try to lift them up to a new level. “He drew a circle that closed me out, but I drew a circle that brought him in. “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”(John 8:31-32).”And they straightway left their nets, and followed him. And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.”( Matthew 4:20-22). “And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.”(Matthew 9:9).”Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”(Matthew 19:27-29).”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).”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 12:48-50).” Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, and said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great. And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us. And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, and sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village. And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God”( Luke 9:46-60). I hope this teaching helps you to have a deeper understanding of FORSAKING ALL There are many levels of Discipleship. There are 100%, 70%, 50% etc. Which are you? You are either a Missionary or a Mission Field. “What is that to thee, follow thou me.” (John 21:22b).

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

THERE IS A FAMINE COMING

“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land,
not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:
and they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east,they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.” (Amos 8:11-12)


 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.”(John 9:4).

“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 60:2).

” Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” (Revelation 12:12).

 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.”

 (Daniel 11:33-35).
“and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.”(Daniel 12:7b).


Never in the course of human history and conflict has so much of an opportunity been given to help so many, but so few choose to gain the ability to take on the challenge that has been set before them.

 
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” (Matthew 22:14).

Because few choose to be chosen.
You better hide the Word in your heart while you can by reading, and memorizing God’s Word. The time is coming when they will take it all away, and all you will have is what you memorized and hid in you 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. 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
