Questions From God

Nevertheless I have [somewhat] against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.  Revelation 2:4 

Why have you left your first love, Me?

Am not I good enough to you that you don't feel the need to worship Me?

Why do you not pray to Me enough when you have the time?

Why do you ignore Me and not thank Me enough for all I have blessed you with and given you?

I, your Father have loved you, so why do you not abide in My love?

I have given you life, what have you and are you giving Me?

Why hast thou forsaken Me My son/daughter? And why hast thou left thy first love, Me your God?

Who are you that you won't read your Bible as much as you should so I can speak to you?

Why are you so comfortable in your little world and lifestyle that you forget Me?

Do you know I am God Almighty?  I am the great I AM? There is none other.

Why do you not do as I command you, to feed My sheep? And My lambs?

Do you have a burden and heartfelt desire for lost souls like My Son Jesus did?

You know I am a God of love, anger, and wrath, but do you know I can make you obey Me and do My will?

Many scorn, mock Me and blaspheme My Holy Name, but do you know I am not mocked? Whatsoever a man soweth,that shall he also reap.

Why do you not pray to Me like you used to?

Am I that unimportant and insignificant to you that you refuse to soften your heart to My call for you and give in to Me so that you can be the center of My will for your life?

Have you ever thought I can take all away from you what you own and have and leave you like a 'Job' ?

What would you do if I took away your home, your work, your means of transportation, your friends, your entire family? Would you charge Me your Lord God foolishly and still not sin?

I love you, but do you love ME, the Lord your God? My Word says , "If ye love me, keep my commandments".  DO YOU OR DO YOU NOT?

Are you more concerned in following ME, surrendering to ME and obeying ME? Or are you more concerned with what others think of you if you decided to do what l ask of you, then not doing it cause of your shame for Me?

Why is it you twist MY Word and scripture verse, 'submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you?' Your way is opposite as YOU submit to the devil, you resist ME, so you make Me flee from you. How could you, so called Christian, do this to the one who created you?

How can you sing Sweet Hour of Prayer to Me your God, yet quit after 2 or 3 songs, and not even give Me one hour of your time to me in prayer? Do you hate and detest Me that much that l am not worthy of that from you?

Why is it that when someone I call to preach My Word,when he says something that requires acknowledgement on your part that is Biblically true, you won't? Can't you even prove your love and faithfulness to me by raising holy hands to Me, say amen, glory to God, alleluia, shout at the sound of My holy and reverend Name? Why are you so quiet?

Is it because you are trying to hear intently and discern what you think is Biblical, and you are trying to interpret Biblically what you think I mean in My Word based on your opinion on whether or not you should agree with what the preacher is saying? Your opinion is NOT the  point.  My word and I am the main point  of the message. Your interpretation is not even based on My Holy Word, but your own ignorance is blatant as you try to dismantle my precious Bible to your own liking instead of allowing the Holy Spirit to lead you, teach you and fill you to acknowledging me the proper way that you should be.

You are My servants and my friends.  I am your Master. Will YOU serve ME faithfully till death? Do you love ME with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength? I love you, dear sinner.

l judge the righteous and l am angry with the wicked every day, too. Are you the righteous who will go to heaven saved by My grace? Or are you the wicked that will fall under My wrath and be condemned to hell after your death?

You go to church and use it as a crutch, do you?  You make light of what is being preached.  You come to socialize and to hear a sweet "oh, make me feel good" sermon, then slander the preacher when he preaches on what is needed to be preached on - SIN. You make yourself look of somewhat importance in the sight of others, you with a pompous and wickedly prideful attitude.  You come as a sweet person, but outside of church you revert to your wicked glutonous lifestyle. You say l am a Christian, but you refuse to go to church as I COMMAND IT. IT IS A DIRECT COMMANDMENT FROM ME.

I LOVE YOU.
I  WANT TO SAVE YOU FROM HELL.
I  WANT TO BLESS YOU.
I WANT TO GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART.
I KNOW YOU WHO ARE SAVED.
I KNOW THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE LOST AND ON THE ROAD TO HELL.
I AM THE LORD THY GOD, THEIR IS NONE OTHER
DO NOT I DESERVE YOUR HONOR AND PRAISE AND TO BE GLORIFIED?

MY WORD IN JOHN 14:6 SAYS, "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE, NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER BUT BY ME".

COME NOW TO ME. BE CONVICTED. ADMIT YOU ARE A SINNER IN NEED OF A SAVIOUR. CONFESS YOUR SINS. REPENT HEART-FULLY. ASK ME TO FORGIVE YOU. ASK MY SON JESUS TO COME INTO YOUR HEART TO SAVE YOU FROM THAT VILE PLACE HELL, OR TOMORROW MAY NEVER COME DEAR PERSON.

TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION. LATER MAY BE TOO LATE.

Those Who Are Against Us

For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life. But I trusted in thee O LORD: I said, Thou art my God.         Psalm 31:13,14  

This a sermon title the Lord gave me some time ago, along with these verses, too. Mainly verse 13, but I added verse 14, too. The above statement is true, the title that is. Not so much the ungodly of this world who prospers, but of our so-called Christian brothers and sisters. You find out very fast who are your friends, true friends at that, those who will and will not pray for you no matter what happens, those who are content where they are with no true meaning in their so-called walk with the Lord, and those who defy you and tell you things.  

When you turn to the Lord in humility and prayer, it is those who are the culprits, also withstanding, not building yourself up with pride, but also the Lord can turn things around for HIS glory, for HIS honour and for HIS good as you look upon yourself and say, 'What l have done oh Lord? Help me Father, why have l done what I did to displease and dishonour YOU and all YOU have done for me?' Many times it is not I, nor you who has done so many things that we think are displeasing to the LORD.  So often it is others when we think it is ourselves who is to blame (many times it is, lots of times it is not either).  When we seek the Lord on ALL matters, we find out it is not I, nor you, but others who are against you for some silly or minor concern that they pride themselves on to know, and that their knowledge is power over you.  They see in you a weakness that  the LORD considers a strength in YOU. So are and were you wrong in your evaluation in what others have thought of you? Yes and No. Slander is deadly and a sin also when we accuse fellow brothers and sisters in Christ when we do not have the whole facts on such matters. We are too going of a concern to be truly careful in saying anything these days as we are too proud, too fast to condemn and slow to love.  It should be the other way around, slow to condemn and fast to love.

I am about mid fifties now and am not ashamed.  l have been around a bit. l have see much, more than l care to even consider. I have seen filth, poverty up close. l have seen pride and humbleness in others. I have seen and been involved in things l am ashamed to even mention which l never will on this blog. I have given in to evil and I have held myself back from being involved in things that would of and could of destroyed my life also. But through it all, the LORD GOD, my FATHER has given me more grace and mercy more each day.  As l look back, He has given me benefits that exceeds far beyond those who have more than me in worldly goods. I have slandered others.  Many have me.  It is sin and I hate sin, my own, do you hate yours? Of rebellion?  Of slander against your Christian brothers and sisters? Of your pride? Of you not giving in to ask forgiveness when you are in the wrong? Some of you never ask forgiveness of others because of your stupid, damnable, stinking, filthy pride, in where you build yourself up just because you happen to have a position above others. You look on others who don't agree with you and slander them. Are you better than someone who may be under you man of GOD?  God will judge horribly all those who are of a proud heart, too prideful to even ask forgiveness when they have wronged someone.  Most will never ask forgiveness due to PRIDE.  When people get to the point where they won't humble themselves in front of others, do you really think GOD Himself will forgive you or tell you "well done thou good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of the Lord?" I believe God, in His holiness, will never say that to most people these days. If l was God I certainly would not. If you don't ask forgiveness, the LORD will not forgive you.

Unfortunately, l know of many like this.  l am the same as l get that way, too. But, when you know the Lord moves in your life and then He tells you that you must leave and go elsewhere, others blame you and point their skinny little finger at you accusing you of contempt and mistakes that you may have done.  In truth, it is the Hand of God Himself in these things, as I have found out myself. This is true and fact, and anyone of you who thinks differently is a liar. GOD is GOD and HE will do what He wants and how He wants and when He wants, not when someone teaches otherwise what they think the LORD or how He should move in the lives of others.  Slanderers! GOD will not put up with this hellish foolishness. The Lord can take someone out of a place and have a better place for them.  But, most would not agree with that as many would try to keep you where you are, then if you don't grow where you are at, they blame you and think it is you yourself holding yourself back from such things, when in fact they DO NOT see the Lord Jesus Christ is in it, telling you what you must do in order to obey Him and serve Him. They do not see this or are very ignorant of the Lord and fail to realize the Hand Of GOD Himself puts some in or takes some out as the expense of slander on those who the Lord frees to serve Him elsewhere. I know this will not be received and I do not care.  The Lord gave this to me so He will deal with you in HIS time.  When you fear it is not of God, why fear? Man can do nothing to you or me.  All he can do is kill the body, but l shall be in heaven if that is done some day, amen to that. I don't fear that.  There are some good fears too, but it is not what I am getting into here. People take counsel against others because they have a fear of, not so much of themselves when they can't get someone on their side, but a fear that the LORD's will will take over and control a person, and not the man controlling that person. l see it, too many try to control others, at work, at my work, in churches, man wants control today.  When the Lord God convicts someone that he cannot keep someone in a church, but that person will be sent out to someplace better to serve GOD, they forget all about God's will in someone else's life and the conviction the Lord put on that person's heart.  He goes out, forgets it completely and tries  to control that person, and others with his human fleshly hand of iron. Or so he think it is iron, when it is only flesh and bone, breakable too. The heart is also breakable, too.  But l wonder how many will break in truth IF they see the truth in the Word of God?  The problem is most of you are unmoved due to pride, and you may say well you are full of pride, you are right, l am. l admit it, but l am ashamed of it too.  What about you? Are you ashamed? Are you in sorrow for the sin of your pride? Are you still slanderous in backbiting and backstabbing in your way? People will take counsel against you.  They will try to take your life from you, not so much physically, but spiritually.   l know.  l have been there, and it is sad and a sin. But when GOD moves in your life,and tells you to leave, you go, and when He does not convict you, you know it was His will. His will is not the same as one behind a pulpit or even if one is not a preacher. GOD has called me to be one. His will was l leave the church where l was. l did. l prayed in tears saying, 'Lord, can l go back and repent?' Nothing came from Him. l said, 'Lord, is their a better place you have for me?' He convicted me greatly on this and told me yes, and NOT IN AUDIBLE WORDS.  The Word of God and God Himself speaks to you and answers questions you have and answers prayer. HE has me and with NO audible words. He does not do that today. Do you have fellowship with the One created you? Some of you do not agree on these things as some would say, 'Give me the Scripture'. Why you poor little boy, God can't answer prayer without a verse every time? In God's time if He wants to confirm to you and give you verses, as He has me, He will, so don't fret. Stop trying to hype yourself up to something you are not. You not worry about others, best you worry about your relationship with GOD IF you have one.

Because the LORD is this, in this time in my life, moving in me, convicting me on many things, to leave, and to just wait on Him, to put someplace else, l shall wait on HIM and not on people. God almighty, l say, Thou art my GOD. He is MY God in all things and thru all things and in Him will l trust. Slander is deadly.  To take counsel against others when it is uncalled for is dangerous.  To take someone's life spiritually and against the will of the Lord, is detrimental. The reason why the Lord Jesus Christ, MY Saviour, took me out, is because of wrong doctrine.  Because of this, He took me out and l feel no conviction whatsoever as He does not want me to go back. Will others pray for me? Probably not. Will I pray for them that took counsel against me? Yes I will. It is my duty to pray for them and I will.

This is another sermon, but l was removed because of my stand on that we are NOT born sinners. I believe this to be Bible and will not budge what the Lord told me in answered prayer, again not audibly. l made a statement once in the way l worded it sounded like l meant the Lord did answer that way, but I did not say it that way as my statement was misinterpreted by some l know of.  I know what I wrote, but others just take it the way you write it and really do not dwell on it to see the true meaning of the statement. A Preacher friend of mine quoted,  "All the 'Bible-believers' that adhere to original sin, don't worry about answering the questions that arise.  They just use their tongues to slay the ones asking the questions and mark them as 'heretics'. That solves the problem for them".

Well said by my Christian Brother in Christ and a great preacher of God's Word, too. This is very true, but those who read this will remain unmoved and too full of pride and their indoctrinated beliefs that their teachers taught them, that they WILL NOT seek the Lord is all truth and be open minded to find THE TRUTH. If they LOVE GOD, if YOU truly love God as you claim you do, men or women, you will truly seek Him on these things and pray and allow the Holy Spirit to teach you.  Then your eyes will be truly opened such as mine were. I have been accused of lying, in a matter of fact, I did not lie in other writings. l have been accused of being a heretic. I find this most interesting, that if l am, why then did the LORD GOD HIMSELF remove me where l attended because of this false doctrine? Anyone who is seeking PURE Bible truth will not argue with this, only a fool, or a very proud one will (Proverbs 26:3-5). I have been slayed by so-called 'Christian' friends, been slandered, counsel against me, cut me off to take away my life spiritually, and not even from the ungodly.  Some of you call yourselves Christians to abuse others with your mouth, thereby building yourself into something you are not. Christian persecution l should of called this instead. l rather be beaten by a mob of heathen preaching to them than slandered by one Christian Brother or sister. I was even told l call God a liar because of this? Really? Then why has God showed me more mercy and grace more than ever before? And why has He been feeding me out of HIS Word and showing me day after day little things, verses, and giving me sermons? Why have I been closer to Him now than ever before? Why have I been thanking Him more and more each day? Why am I more grateful in the little things?  Answer that Mr. Bible Man who has all the answers.  You know not nor have wisdom as you think you do, but you take God for granted and His Word for granted. 

I know this will be read by many and l welcome, we welcome your comments, no matter what your opinion may be. But remember, who are you going to call on when you want to know pure Bible doctrine of the Bible, people or  the Lord? But seek ye  first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.

Lastly again l quote the verse Psalm 31:13,14: For l have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life. But l trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. And in Him will I TRUST.

You, yes, you who are full of the devil and strife and envy against others, and full of pride, that you in no way can be wrong in doctrine, or other things, it is because you think too highly of yourself.  My prayer for you is that GOD Almighty will smash the pride out of you and beat you mercilessly into submission to Him and spiritually humiliate you.  Until He does that to most of you, you in no way will in no way see any wrong you have done to others in breaking down of others. GOD is not happy about such things and will not allow these things and sins to go unnoticed.  You will stand before God one day soon, so best now to get right with God or suffer the consequences. As I said before, l know this will be just joked or smirked on, made fun on, not given serious thought, if that is you.  You are what l mentioned.  You are cold and hardhearted and I pray God will either wake you up and humble you, or................. you fill in the blanks. It is up to you Christian or those who may not be saved. If unsaved and unsure about what becoming saved from hell, contact us and we can show you in the Bible verses to go to that talks about salvation and becoming 'born again'.

Love in Christ to all, no matter your opinion. Amen.

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.  John 3:16

Probably the one verse in the entire Bible more quoted, more used to bring souls to Christ, more given to those in need of comfort, and also more abused, too. The abusive part is where many religions and cults take it out of context and say we are all children of God. They say 'whosoever believeth' therefore making it say that we all are children of God when it is Bible fact we are not all children of God. To be a child of God you have to believe in Jesus Christ, you have to be convicted of your sins, confess your sins, you must repent, you accept by faith God's free gift of salvation, and you must call upon Him with an open, humble and contrite heart, with clean hands.  You must have a pure heart, too. You must receive Jesus Christ in your heart. If not, you are doomed to hell. Plain and simple, as l say it the way it is.

The book of Galatians confirms this, as it says in chapter 3:26, For ye are all the children of God by FAITH in Christ Jesus (the capital letters is mine to enforce the word faith). It says faith, it does not say good works, deeds, or doing good to someone and keeping a good moral life.  It is not keeping out of trouble either, nor does it say we are all children of God, period. Yes, so many blow this out of the water and pass it by saying 'we are all children of God' when it is a blatant lie and heresy. If anyone teaches this, it is mocking God and one of His attributes, FAITH and calling Him a liar. Saying everyone will go to heaven: Buddhists, Witnesses, Catholics, Muslims, New Agers, Wiccans, Methodists, United Pentecostals, Mormons, etc.; if you are involved in one of these religions, that you may of gotten out of, realized your great mistakes and wickedness, and you got saved by the blood of Christ; l love you in the Lord.  If you are not saved, l will not accept your faith or religion as you cannot rely on your faith in a religion to save you as it can't.  Only Jesus Christ can save your soul from a burning hot black and dark inferno of hell. Faith in God is what you need. Not is some stinking heathen religion that is not of God. I am not  religious, l am saved, saved, saved! How about you?

If God did not so loved the world, why would He of given His only begotten Son to die for you and your sins? Why would He have given this great promise of His to you for you to accept by faith and have a place in heaven to see Him face to face? Why would He have promised that you would not perish, but have everlasting life? Think of it. Think on these things, you who read this. Philippians 4:8 says, 'Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if their be any virtue, and if their be any praise ,  think on these things.' THINK on these things. THINK on them. THINK, don't sit, sour and soak.  Don't be a dope, mope and grope. THINK EVERLASTING LIFE.

Your religion is probably dead with no hope. You probably have no hope for heaven as you may have been taught good works.  You may either just be good to all around you or live a good life, be a good person, be kind to all around you, accept everyone the way they are and don't argue.  God is a God of love and never would send anyone to hell.  It would be a good idea for you read the entire chapter of John 3, even Revelation 20. John 3:36 says, '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.' This verse should put some fear in some of you.  If it doesn't, then you are either saved and heaven bound (amen!) or unsaved, hardhearted and unmoved soon to be in hell's ground. Are you still in the vicegrip of Satan's power and are you in the bondage of sin not knowing where to turn? John 3:17-18  states 'For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.' You want to become saved and a born again Christian and be heaven bound, or in hell's ground? Read the Bible and study it. 'Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth'. 2 Timothy 2:15. Remember, EVERLASTING LIFE.

I would not want to be under God Almighty's wrath. Those of you who refuse, reject, refute this, you wil be under His condemnation after you die.  He will send you to hell with the Father of lies, the Devil himself. Look up wrath of God and even study it.  If it doesn't bother you or affect you, you are dead in heart and stone cold in your mind.  You want everlasting life?

'Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.' Acts 16:31.  You want to be saved, heaven bound and see my Jesus whom l will see when l die? You can friend: man, woman, youth, child, whosoever may come. Do you want everlasting life?

'And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.' Revelation 20:15. Or do you want to live, reject Jesus and be under the terrible wrath of God? If so, your name will not be written in the book of life. To be in God's book of life is to have your sins washed white by the Blood of Jesus. You wil have a home and a new name in glory.  It is mine.  Will it be yours?

Tomorrow you may be in torments in a dark, dingy, dank place called hell, or you can be in a bright, full light of a beautiful heaven with streets of gold praising the Lord where love is expounded greatly, and  where there is no darkness, evil, crying or gnawing of your tongue. Your choice, friend.

Bless The Lord (Part 5)


Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.  Psalm 103:5

Correct me if l be wrong, this is part 5 and am glad to be doing this with much happiness.  l always learn from the Word of God each day l read His Word. This is a continuation of the other previous verses I have written in other parts.

This verse is most excellent as it tells me another benefit that the Lord gives to us all, especially since He has given to me much more than l deserve.  When l read His Word, my mouth is satisfied with the GOOD THINGS He has showed me. I pray to Him in thanksgiving and thank Him for ALL He has given me. He satisfieth my mouth with the abundance of life He has allowed me to have, and for that l am very thankful. He satisfieth my mouth with the ability to talk, and sometimes nonstop. He satisfieth my mouth in encouraging others, but not so when things said out of turn can be hurting or damaging. He is not pleased with that, but we are to make mistakes so we can learn from them and grow off them as well. We, then, become better people out of them as well. What we did yesterday, let us not make the mistakes or say today what we did yesterday. In other words, don't let today be your downfall if you decide to do or say today what you foolishly did yesterday. Don't make the mistake in that, as many go back and make the same mistakes day after day and they wonder why their days are not getting better for them. That is why the Lord is not giving to them as much as He used to. Time for some to smarten and wise up instead of being ignorant of the Lord and kowtowing to the devils' ways. 

Best part for me in this part of the verse, "Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things", is that when the Lord satisfies me the best with good things, I see He gave me, and us, a mouth to sing unto Him, to praise Him out loud, to thank Him out loud in prayer, to boast of all His goodness, and to speak of His perfect grace and mercy. He shows and gives to those each day that He allows to live. To give unto Him honour not only in speech, but in thoughts and through quiet times with Him as well, not only in vocal praise, prayer and thanksgiving to Him, but in quiet admiration towards Him. If you were unable to speak, you can praise, thank and glorify the Lord  quietly as well.  You can lift holy hands up to Him revering Him in every way.  Even in your mind, you shout the victory if you have Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour.  You can even run the length of your home or outside on your property if you are really on fire for Him. When l don't know what to say, l do just all what l said.  There is nothing wrong with any of these. Don't let anyone discourage you in praising and serving the Lord. I have run my mobile home the length of it before. I have shouted with a loud voice. I have thanked the Lord quietly.

'Be still and know that I am God', says Psalm 46:10. You can think of many things yourself. I am sure about that. So much we just open our mouths to voice our thankfulness to the Lord God who created us in His glorious image. Are you giving glory and honour and praise to the GOD who created you? Or are you defying Him and ignoring all He has ALLOWED YOU to have? 

Last part of the verse is "... so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's." Another benefit the Lord gives to us. You can check out the eagle and what it is likened to in the Bible.  But, to have my youth renewed like the eagle's is like my older age which l am, is to the youth the Lord gives me because of His salvation as l put my trust in Him as a young boy.  He gives me strength to fly high as the eagle soars, in the way that l get a high off Him when l fully trust in Him for all my needs.  I just let HIM have His way with me. This is a true high for me when I read the Bible, too.  Because nothing can or should give anyone more true joy, more excitement and more energy than when you read His Bible and lean on His promises.  They can renew you, revive you, lift you up, and give you more of a good countenance. MOST OF ALL, KNOWING HIM AS YOUR OWN PERSONAL SAVIOUR, this should renew you in all things and make you look up to the One who is just, righteous, full of goodness and mercy, and grace and truth.  If you don't, you will never have true peace which the Lord can give you.  Contrary, the world's thoughts on peace is to be good, love and accept their philosophies on everything and reject what the Lord teaches in the Bible. Also, the best benefit the Lord can give, and has given anyone, is the free gift of eternal salvation. Do you have this? The Lord is right there and can hear you when you call.  He is seeking you to save you.  Are you seeking Him who is just a call away? 

Read: John 3:16, Romans 10:9-13, 1 John 5:12-13, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 6:37-40

Bless The Lord (Part 4)

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies.         Psalm 103:4

This is part 4 of a series of short lectures, or mini sermons on the great passages from the Word of God, Bless the Lord. l will attempt to break the verse of Psalm 103:4 down best of my ability.  l am just a man, so I  can never do the wonderful words of God any justice in doing so, but will do my utmost best and l pray it will please our Lord God.  

'Who redeemeth thy life from destruction'.   
Number 1 - If you are a saved born again Biblical Christian (John 3:3), you are... Number 2 - redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 9:12)... Number 3 - you are cleansed by the blood of Christ (1 Peter 1:18-19, 1 John 1:7)...  Number 4 - you are saved from hell and destruction and will not see condemnation (John 3:18, 5:24, 6:47).

I suggest those of you who do not understand these things, please do look them up, plus the extra verses in your concordance in back of your Bible.  Put them together.  See how they apply to each other and which verses don't.  Read and study them and be purged by the Word of the Lord. Don't take 1 verse out of context, but rightly divide the word of God (2 Timothy 2:15).

'Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness...' 
Isaiah 63:7; Psalm 26:3; Psalm 36:7,10; Psalm 40:11, Psalm 107:43, Psalm 138:2 - Then we have 'and tender mercies...'
Psalm 51:1; Psalm 69:16, James 5:11, Psalm 119:77,156; Psalm 145:8-9 - These are but a few verses to show the Lord's lovingkindness and mercy which are actually gifts to us.  Because without His grace, mercy, love for us, lovingkindness, goodness, holiness, righteousness,  glory He shows us each day, salvation, abundance of life He gives to us each day, we would be destitute of all these things.  We would be lost and on the way to hell. But, He gives us more than what we all deserve. I challenge you to look up these verses and others that apply.  Study them and see how they apply to your life. Be challenged to do something for the Lord instead of being a vagrant, violating His Word and slandering Him for all He has done for you. I could be here for hours doing this, but time limits me.  If l did do this, this would be a book and that is the truth. I just want to make this short so YOU will do something, and you will be surprised what you will come up with if you study on your own.

God has given to us all, the wicked included, we need to live.  Yes, He gives some more than others, some less, some even lesser.  But all in all, the LORD is good always and give us the miracle of life, an extra breath. Long live our Lord forever and forever, and blessed be His holy name.

Be blessed by the Lord and read.  Apply yourself, study, and absorb it.  If you are not saved, you will go to hell. Studying the Word of God is useless to you as you will never truly understand the Bible in any way. To have any understanding of God's Word you must be saved, otherwise study for you is useless.

I leave you with these verses to look up in case you are not saved so that YOU can get a grasp on the Word of God.  These will make you know how to be saved and prevent Him from casting you into the lake of fire and hell.

Read: John 3:1-18; Acts 16:31; Romans 3:23, 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-13; 1 John 5:10-13.

Life In A Teaching Mission

This is a re-post from Couple's Nest, predecessor of  Write! (http://www.mikenluisa1.blogspot.com)

I love teaching very much. It was my life, and if God would give me more time and opportunity to teach again, I would definitely accept it!

I was a college intructor before I was paralyzed almost two years ago. For me, it was the kind of profession where I could work best with people and learn from them also. It was my way of reaching out to students in need of learning. Most of all, it was also my opportunity to tell them in many ways that I have a most wonderful and gracious God.

Through the teaching and learning process, I was able to share my life with my students not just in the lessons I taught them. My break times were mostly used as consultation periods for students to come as friends. I often told them I was their friend and we had proven it many times. I listened to different problems and gave them advices. During these precious times, too, many received Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord in tears.

College Administrations had always been strict with allowing Christian activities to be held openly in schools. I, too, received reprimands because of these activities. Yet, God had His ways so that His plans were materialized. He used legal means for us to perform His calling.

I was used by God in ways I could not imagine. With Christian co-teachers, we participated in activities that used the college as arena for moral recovery programs by the government. These, of course, paved the way for Christian students to form their own student organizations, legally recognized by the college, to bring other students to Christ. God was good to us.

As I look back now, I still see the school as a very potential mission ground for a missionary-teacher, if all true Christian teachers would really care to be used by God the way He did others. A teacher has all opportunities in the classroom. He can then divert these various opportunities into good grounds where Christ is felt and seen in many wonderful ways.

To the Christian teachers, this is a challenge.

Wayward Pastor Endorses Obama's Presidency
 
By David J. Stewart | April 2009

Proverb 28:4, “They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.”
       A pastor of one of the largest Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches in America recently dipped his sails, praising one of the most godless men to ever enter the Office of U.S. President. I was stunned as I heard him make the following apostate statements...
“Oh the negativity of it. I'm amazed how many Christians, born-again Christians... 'You think Obama's the Antichrist?' Who cares! No I don't believe that. I think he's a born-again Christian if you want the truth of the matter. I don't think he's the Antichrist. I'm kind of excited about him getting into office. So many people say, 'I thought you were a Republican.' You know what I am? I'm a believer in Jesus Christ. That's what I am. And I'm kind of looking forward to Mr. Obama. I think it's historic. I think it's wonderful. I'm glad for him. I'm glad for his family. I've been praying for him every single day since he announced his candidacy. You pray for me in this new year? Pray for the man every day. Pray for his daughters. Pray for his wife. I'm happy for them. He won, man, let him celebrate. This is historic. 'Do you think he's the Antichrist?' That's negative talk. Everybody's unhappy.”
The pastor of this quote flat out states that he doesn't care if Obama is the Antichrist. That is some dangerous talk. He goes on to praise Barack Obama, who is a wicked man. Proverb 28:4 proclaims, “They that FORSAKE THE LAW praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.” This same pastor who has endorsed Obama, said last year that the King James Bible is not inspired word for word. You'd think if there's one place in the world where your faith would be strengthened and built up, it would be in a church and a Bible college. I'm sad for his congregation and students, who are having their faith shaken in the Word of God, and are being led to support a Communist President. It is very interesting that Proverb 28:4 says "they that FORSAKE THE LAW praise the wicked." This pastor denies the word for word inspiration of the King James Bible and now he is praising the wicked, just like the Bible warned. That pastor has forsaken the Law and is in denial, and now he is praising the wicked as a testimony against himself.
 
Obama is Not a Christian in Any Biblical Sense
Lest anyone should think Barack Obama is a born-again Christian, here is solid proof that he is NOT a Christian in any Biblical sense. Please send the following videos to everyone you know to warn them about Mr. Obama, because he is a wolf in sheep's clothing . . .
I am praying for the pastor in question who has endorsed Obama's presidency, that God will humble him to see the truth. You say, "What right do you have to criticize a pastor who runs 15,000 people in Sunday School every week?" I receive that many web visitors each day. Just because a pastor has a large ministry doesn't give him special protection against being admonished by his Christian brethren. The truth is the truth. I built this ministry from day one back in 2002 speaking the truth without apology, and I SHALL NOT BE MOVED. I may just be a voice crying in cyberspace, but bless God, I'm a voice! Someone's got to take a stand for what is right. As a Christian, it is my duty and yours, to contend for the faith (Jude 3).
Obama Voted for Infanticide in Illinois
It is so tragic that America's pastors are turning. What kind of professed man of God would praise and endorse the Presidency of a Communist who has voted repeatedly to legalize infanticide? . . .
Why Obama Really Voted For Infanticide  
More important to protect abortion doctors than “that fetus, or child — however way you want to describe it.”
By Andrew C. McCarthy 
There wasn’t any question about what was happening. The abortions were going wrong. The babies weren’t cooperating. They wouldn’t die as planned. Or, as Illinois state senator Barack Obama so touchingly put it, there was “movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead.”
No, Senator. They wouldn’t go along with the program. They wouldn’t just come out limp and dead.
They were coming out alive. Born alive. Babies. Vulnerable human beings Obama, in his detached pomposity, might otherwise include among “the least of my brothers.” But of course, an abortion extremist can’t very well be invoking Saint Matthew, can he? So, for Obama, the shunning of these least of our brothers and sisters — millions of them — is somehow not among America’s greatest moral failings.
No. In Obama’s hardball, hard-Left world, these least become “that fetus, or child — however you want to describe it.”
Most of us, of course, opt for “child,” particularly when the “it” is born and living and breathing and in need of our help. Particularly when the “it” is clinging not to guns or religion but to life.
But not Barack Obama. As an Illinois state senator, he voted to permit infanticide. And now, running for president, he banks on media adulation to insulate him from his past.
The record, however, doesn’t lie.
Infanticide is a bracing word. But in this context, it’s the only word that fits. Obama heard the testimony of a nurse, Jill Stanek. She recounted how she’d spent 45 minutes holding a living baby left to die.
The child had lacked the good grace to expire as planned in an induced-labor abortion — one in which an abortionist artificially induces labor with the expectation that the underdeveloped “fetus, or child — however you want to describe it” will not survive the delivery.
Stanek encountered another nurse carrying the child to a “soiled utility room” where it would be left to die. It wasn’t that unusual. The induced-labor method was used for late-term abortions. Many of the babies were strong enough to survive the delivery. At least for a time.
So something had to be done with them. They couldn’t be left out in the open, struggling in the presence of fellow human beings. After all, those fellow human beings — health-care providers — would then be forced to confront the inconvenient question of why they were standing idly by. That would hold a mirror up to the whole grisly business.
Better the utility room. Alone, out of sight and out of mind. Next case.
Stanek’s account enraged the public and shamed into silence most of the country’s staunchest pro-abortion activists. Most, not all. Not Barack Obama.
My friend Hadley Arkes ingeniously argued that legislatures, including Congress, should take up “Born Alive” legislation: laws making explicit what decency already made undeniable: that from the moment of birth — from the moment one is expelled or extracted alive from the birth canal — a human being is entitled to all the protections the law accords to living persons.
Such laws were enacted by overwhelming margins. In the United States Congress, even such pro-abortion activists as Sen. Barbara Boxer went along.
But not Barack Obama. In the Illinois senate, he opposed Born-Alive tooth and nail.
Obama is Committed to Expanding Rights for Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals
Barack Hussein Obama is no friend to America, nor to freedom, nor to Christianity, nor to decency. There is NOTHING wonderful about Obama's election to office. What kind of professed man of God would praise and endorse the Presidency of a Communist who has committed himself to support, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered Americans, even helping them to adopt children? . . .
“On his website, change.gov, the new President laid out his plans to support, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered Americans. It includes doing away with the 'Don't ask, don't tell policy', allowing homosexuals to serve openly in the military, expanding Hate Crimes legislation, repealing the Defense of Marriage Act, opposing a Constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriages, passing the Employment Non Discrimination Act, and expanding adoption rights for gays and lesbians. And in addition, he's promised to appoint federal and Supreme Court judges who are compassionate towards gays and lesbians. What that really means is that he's going to appoint judges who will rewrite the Constitution, if necessary, to make it say exactly what they want it to say. So connect the dots.”
SOURCE: SILENCING THE CHRISTIANS
You can read the Obama-Biden Plan for yourself. The issue is not about Civil Rights, it's about Christians being allowed to exercise their freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
 
Apostasy in America's Churches
Covetousness has destroyed more pastors and churches than any other sin. When a church starts an orchestra, it is a frightening moment, because with culture disappears John the Baptist type Christians. America is dying for more Billy Sundays! America is dying for preaching preachers! America is dying for great revival preachers, who take an uncompromising stand against the evils of our day, instead of compromising and praising wicked men.
When a pastor promotes an apostate like Rick Warren, who promotes his own methods over God's Word, then he is entering the Ecumenical Movement (that is, the unbiblical yoking together of believers with unbelievers, and of separated believers with unseparated believers). The Bible teaches for us to be divided over truth; whereas the Ecumenicalist says, "Let's unite, even if by error." They say, "Hey, we all believe on Jesus, that's all that matters." No Sir, a lot more matters, which is why God commands us to mark them which teach things contrary to the Bible and avoid them. Romans 16:17, "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them."
America doesn't need anymore ear-ticklin', back-scratchin', penny-pinchin', nickel-nippin', soft-soap, compromising, pink-tea and lemonade sissy type preachers. No sir! What America desperately needs today is old-fashioned, Bible-believin', people-lovin', barn-stormin', window-rattlin', shingle-pullin', narrow-minded, Hell-fire and damnation, separated, soulwinning, preachers who aren't afraid to speak the truth!!! STOP PRAISING OBAMA! STOP CRITICIZING THE KING JAMES BIBLE! Walking with God ought to cause a preacher to desire and preach the truth!
America is going to Hell, literally. I recently spoke with an elderly gentleman who said to me, "Our society today is saturated with demonism." He is absolutely correct, and Barack Obama is demonic. What kind of pastor would say he doesn't care if Obama is the Antichrist? The pastor in question said he began praying for Obama at the beginning of his candidacy. Well, I started exposing Obama in February of 2008, long before his election, warning people that Mr. Obama is BAD NEWS! Hillary Clinton is very bad news, and Obama immediately appointed her as his Secretary of State. In praising Obama, the pastor in question is also praising Hillary Clinton.
The intent of this article is mainly to warn Christians about Barack Obama, who is a Communist. It's been in the news lately that the U.S. government is gaining control over the banks and auto-industry. Ladies and gentlemen, that is Communism.
It is also my sincerest hope that pastors and other Christian leaders reading this will realize that God called you to be a man of God. Well, you're not doing a very good job when you trash the King James Bible, which has been the inspired Sword of every mighty preacher over the past four hundred years. And you're not doing a very good job when you praise and endorse a wicked President who has committed himself to expanding the immoral rights of abortionists, homosexuals and feminists.
The “good life” has destroyed more men of God than Communism ever has. Don't forget where you came from, from the pit whence you were digged. Isaiah 51:1, "Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged."

“Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression...” —Isaiah 58:1
