Baby Boomers Religion

First and foremost read Psalms 91 and believe it. No plague will come near your tent(house)

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

2I will say to the LORD, “You are my refuge and my fortress,

my God, in whom I trust.”

3Surely He will deliver you

from the snare of the fowler,

and from the deadly plague.

4He will cover you with His feathers;

under His wings you will find refuge;

His faithfulness is a shield and rampart.

5You will not fear the terror of the night,

nor the arrow that flies by day,

6nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,

nor the calamity that destroys at noon.

7Though a thousand may fall at your side,

and ten thousand at your right hand,

no harm will come near you.

8You will only see it with your eyes

and witness the punishment of the wicked.

9Because you have made the LORD your dwelling—

my refuge, the Most High—

10no evil will befall you,

no plague will approach your tent.

11For He will command His angels concerning you

to guard you in all your ways.

12They will lift you up in their hands,

so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13You will tread on the lion and cobra;

you will trample the young lion and serpent.

14“Because he loves Me, I will deliver him;

because he knows My name, I will protect him.

15When he calls out to Me,

I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble.

I will deliver him and honor him.

16With long life I will satisfy him

and show him My salvation.”

This is for all the redeemed, the believers in Jesus Christ living holy lives. Not for the sinners or unbelievers, Are you following Jesus? If not repent and and call on Jesus to save you and forgive you in this sinful world..

All who are in the tombs will hear His voice

So many misunderstand passages concerning the resurrection at the end of the age. Let’s see what Jesus the Christ said in The gospel of John in chapter 6. Plain as the nose on your face He spells it out.

“Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. 26“For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have life in Himself; 27and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man. 28“Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, 29and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.”

ALL WILL HEAR HIS VOICE BOTH THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE WICKED! The righteous will have a resurrection of life become immortal and live for eternity. The wicked will have a resurrection of death and burn in the lake of fire for eternity. Everyone Is resurrected in the same time frame.

Jesus also said “ You search the scriptures because YOU THINK THAT IN THEM YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE and these scriptures testify about Me and YOU ARE UNWILLING TO COME TO ME SO THAT YOU MAY HAVE LIFE”

See what He is saying? Reading and studying the scriptures is not eternal life, YOU MUST COME TO HIM to have eternal life and when you do you become born again, your spirit is born again! Jesus doesn’t receive glory from men He gets glory from the Father. We pray and sing and worship him and praise Him because of who He is and what He has done for us, not to glorify Him, only the Father can do that. We love and bless the Lord with all that is within us for He alone is Lord and our King.

Now realize this statement about your salvation that Jesus spoke: “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. Strike up the band, let the Choir sing and musicians play

And let all the nations come to the mercy and grace only Jesus can provide. WE PASS OUT OF DEATH INTO LIFE! Have you believed ? Then after your heart and mind has repented (turned around) then go get baptized like Jesus said to do, in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit and do it quickly. We are all baptized into one body by one Spirit, the Spirit of the living God. Now after your born again when you read the Bible it comes alive and the Holy Spirit will teach you as you read. The Bible has to be spiritually discerned and that cannot happen with a carnal mind, it can only take place after the Spirit indwells within you…

There are three main reasons why people go to church religiously: Guilt, Habit or Hunger. With guilt people know they have messed up and feel unworthy. They go instinctively to meet the One who can forgive them and change them, but instead of finding a connection and a real personal relationship with God most of the time they’re only presented with ritual and rules in the modern or traditional way. The power and presence of God is not in the services.

With Habit, finding or seeking God may not even be a goal because they are so entrenched in the religious system of the world or their denomination that the result is only going through the motions of a walk with the Lord because there is no power in their lives to fight against the enemy. They look and act just like the people in the world; the unsaved throughout the week then put on their Christian badge on Sunday so everyone can see. The presence of God is nowhere in their lives nor do they care to even enter in to His presence. They are happy just the way things are and the desire to really know God is not there.

Hunger: they want to know more about God and go to church to learn, but instead of finding His presence, they’re often presented with traditions, habits, rules, and dogmas and other nonsense that has nothing to do with finding the presence of God. Why? Because most churches that don’t preach and teach the fullness of the gospel totally and in the power. They might as well call themselves the Country Club.

Don’t misunderstand me, I’m not saying don’t go to church but don’t go to a dead church where they don’t preach the fullness of Jesus Christ and there is no presence of God by His Holy Spirit in worship and teachings.

Many are now having home bible study with worship and prayer and fellowship right in the homes where Gods Holy Spirit can freely move and teach without denominational doctrine. There is only one true doctrine and that’s the Apostles doctrine as written in the Holy Bible. Isn’t it strange the Bible says “no man needs to teach you? “And as for you, the anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But just as His true and genuine anointing teaches you about all things, so remain in Him as you have been taught.”(1 Jn 2:27) Read and study the word and the Holy Spirit will teach you. Now if you don’t have the anointing of the Holy Spirit you must seek it through prayer and faith in Jesus Christ otherwise how can the anointing teach you? The anointing is the filling or fullness of the Holy Spirit.

The true word for church is “Ecclesia” which simply means a gathering in a group of like minded people not just going to a building to practice a religion. God does not wait around for a week waiting for you to show up so you can have church! He does not live in a building or temple made with hands, He lives in our hearts and spirit by His Holy Spirit! The kingdom of God is within you and not of this world.

Church is not and was never supposed to be a substitute for a everyday direct relationship between you and God. 99% of all your battles in life are outside the church building in real life and you cannot run to a building every time there is a problem, no no you run to God immediately in prayer and converse with Him and read the word. We must all practice walking in the light daily, seeking His will for our lives and pray the Lord’s Prayer when we rise up in the mornings without fail and then talk with Him throughout the day as you would to a friend. When you blow it and sin and you will, repent quickly and don’t run away from God instead run to Him as He is merciful and forgives as soon as you come to Him and repent. We all need to repent and forgive daily and walk in His light and follow His word. Now you know perilous times have begun and horrible things are on the horizon, but God is with us and Jesus will never forsake you, ever…..Lift up you family, friends, city and nation in prayer and don’t let you love grow cold because lawlessness abounds, instead take everything to God in prayer…

My Brush with Death (in Vietnam)

It was a beautiful Sunday morning in northern Vietnam and I had just finished eating a sea ration of WWII canned turkey for breakfast when suddenly off in the distance I heard the dreadful sounds of thump, thump, thump and I knew we were about to get rained down on with artillery being fired from the north Vietnamese army. I was with Marine company 3/3 Lima way north in the Quang Tre province north of Dong Ha very close to the DMZ and things were popping day and night.

There were so many 500 pound bomb crater holes from our B-52’s I was sure we must actually be in the DMZ or we had crossed over into North Vietnam. The carpet bombing covered the area as far as the eye could see. We were just one Marine company fighting against a full regimen of highly skilled north Vietnamese soldiers. These were their best.

I was relaxed as nothing was going on at the moment when the artillery started raining down. I had my helmet off and grabbed it quickly and ran towards a bomb crater and as I was actually in the air diving boom! a large piece of shrapnel pierced my helmet and cut a path on the back of my head literally from ear to ear which later would result in 124 stitches to close the gaping wound. I fell into the crater stunned with lost hearing as the ringing was so loud I could hear nothing else. It felt like someone had taken a baseball bat and Swung it with all their might and hit me in the back of the head. As soon as I could think I began praying because I thought this was it for sure and I would die.

Somehow I mustered enough strength to call out I’m hit, I’m hit and lucky for me a Coreman (medic) heard me and crawled his way into the crater and began wrapping my head to stop the river of blood pouring out from my head. He stuck me with morphine and the pain started to subside. Several others were also wounded so they called in the helicopters to try to land long enough to get us outta there.

They put me on a stretcher and began to take me to the LZ (landing zone) and every few steps they would put me down and hover across my body when more shells screamed down. Nothing in this world like Marines carrying for their wounded risking their own lives to get me to safety. Once again shrapnel was flying through the air and I was hit again in my left upper thigh cutting a huge gaping hole. I remember so vividly choppers hovering and circling above waiting for the right moment to come down and pick me and a couple of others up. Finally they swooped down not touching the ground and my Marine buddies literally threw me up into the chopper and it immediately pulled up into the sky. It felt like I was blasting off to the moon the G-Force was so strong. They flew me all the way down to DaNang and there performed surgery on my head. The wound on my hip was left open. They laid me on a slab like you would see in a mortuary and there were many other soldiers there. Some were calling out to their mothers, some were so angry they were cursing against God but most were praying to God.

Someone began shaving my head with a dry razor which hurt like hell until I told them I could feel that on the front part of my skull so they said sorry and then used water and soap and continued to shave my head. I not sure how long I was on that table but when I woke up I was in a billet type hospital and holding my hand was a beautiful Vietnamese Nun dressed in all whites smiling at me. I thought she was an angel at first but actually she was my angel as she had been praying for me and sat by my side. She began to peel an orange and fed me little by little just smiling, I never saw her again but I’ll never forget her.

Four days later I was flown to Japan and four days after that I was flown back to the states via Alaska to Bethesda Maryland hospital. There I recouped and to my surprise I saw another machine gunner who said our entire company got overrun after I left. Sadly his whole buttocks has been blown off and there was literally no meat or flesh on his backside. After seeing all the wounded and suffering of fellow Marines and other service men I considered myself very blessed and lucky especially when I heard of my former marine classmate Butch Johnson has lost his life. Years later I paid my respects to him at a visit to the Vietnam memorial. Why I made it back and others didn’t I’ll never understand but I know everything is in Gods plan that we don’t understand while we live in this earthly body.

So on this Veterans Day weekend I salute all my fellow Veterans and carry the memories of their service with honor. May God have mercy on our Armed Forces around the world and bless their families…..

Every person born is guaranteed eternal life (but where?) Every single person is born into this world as a sinner. Every single precious baby girl or boy are born in sin, because they sinned? No because their mother and father are sinners. ” There is none righteous, no not one” (Romans 3:10) read it for yourself.

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me. (Psalm 51:5) Again read it for yourself. It’s not long before the sweetest children begin to rebel and sin against their parents. The main first word they learn after “Mama and Papa” is NO. Why? For their own safety. Still they rebel and many get hurt and some die tragically because they decided to rebel against their parents or grandparents.

Why? Because they are born in sin and every human heart is born wicked. Here’s the verse: (Jeremiah 17:9) “… the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked : who can know it?” Yes your heart and my heart are is desperately wicked unless you keep it in check and walk with God daily. Even Christians do wicked things on occasion and must repent and return to God.

Only one person was ever born was sinless and never sinned, the Lord Jesus Christ. Gods Son became capable of sinning after He was born of a woman ( and yes his Mother Mary was a sinner because she was born into sin just like every human being) but Jesus even though severely tempted by Satan never sinned ever! Jesus then submitted to the Father in Heaven and laid down His life and shed His blood for the remission of sins for every person who by faith believes in Him and confesses Him as Lord and follows His command to be baptized in water.

One of the smartest Jewish leaders of his day came to Jesus at night because He didn’t want to be ridiculed by the Pharisees. He asked Jesus about everlasting life and Jesus told him this very very important statement: “Verily, verily I say to you no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again” (John 3:3) Now Jesus went on to explain by the Spirit every person must be born again , read it for yourself.

So every person who expects to be saved now here on earth and be rewarded at death of their body to spend eternity in Heaven with the Father and Jesus and all the Saints must absolutely positively be born again of the Spirit of God. And if your born again you know it in your heart and you live your life following Jesus and the Bible.

Being saved is not repeating some words someone told you to say, nor is it attending some special church someone told you to attend, nor is it following rules and regulations laid down by someone, nor is it giving to the poor or doing great works, nor is it getting baptized. What it is believing in you deepest soul and heart that Jesus Christ is the Only begotten Son of God and only He can save your soul and believe He died and rose again and is coming back. It must be such a conviction that you truly repent of your sins and make a very conscious decision you will follow Him and remain faithful until you die. When you do then and only then do you become born again of the Spirit, and then you can get baptized to fulfill the promise. “We are all born into the body of Christ by One Spirit whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free, we are all made to drink of one Spirit.” ( 1st Corinthians 12:13) Read it for yourself.

I played around with Christianity on and off in my life but one day I said to God ” I can’t do this I’m not strong enough” and that’s when God really began to move strongly in my life, the more I admitted I was weak He became stronger and the more I let go of this world and stayed surrendered, the more Gods Spirit took hold of my life. It is a process to let go of your life and give it to Him. Above all I know it is by grace through faith that I am saved, not a cheap grace being preached in many places today, but a Godly saving grace for souls crying out to God to be saved and forgiven. Don’t tell me your saved if you live like hell and live just like the world, your just deceiving yourself and you probably won’t make it. Today and everyday we must repent and ask forgiveness and begin each new day better than the last one and never give up, never and keep the faith….if you don’t you’ll still live for eternity but in the lake of fire…

Easter Week 2018 – Jesus Shed His Blood Eight Times Do you realize Jesus shed His blood Eight times for you and me ? Science has known for some time that it is possible for a human to secrete blood from their skin due to tremendous stress and agony brought on by mental anguish or…

Most people pray if only now and again or when disaster strikes, but do their prayers get answered? For those not in tune with God that answer is probably no. There is really a few simple reasons why this happens and it’s as plain as the nose on your face. First let’s take a quick look at what is actually recorded in the text of life; the word of God.

1st John 3:21 says this :”Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. This friends, is the first and foremost reason prayer results never come. First reason is “if our hearts does not condemn us” and this speaks volumes. Our hearts are condemned by KNOWN SIN in our lives. Why do people think God will overlook their know Unconfessed sin? Some never even stop to think “But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.” (Luke 12:2) Just look at what’s happening today, all the Revelation coming out about people’s private sex lives , not to mention all the corruption being exposed in governments around the world. We are just witnessing the tip of the iceberg with much more that will come out in the coming weeks and months. And how do they try and get your mind off of what’s happening? Simple just create a false flag; some sort of disaster or new narrative to change the subject or news cycle; thus creating a false flag. It’s the same with individuals; just divert attention away from the truth.

Secondly, “ if you heart condemns you, you have zero confidence when you pray” your just wasting your breath and your words just hit the ceiling and drop to the floor.

However; if you heart DOES NOT CONDEMN YOU, you have great confidence because you are clean and not hiding known sins because you have truly repented of those sins and they are forgiven and forgotten. And if that’s the case you have every right to EXPECT an answer from the Almighty Father in heaven! We have the faith to know that because we do things that are pleasing to God and keep His commandments with no purposeful sin in our lives, God will absolutely, positively answer our prayers in due time.

The only other way that doesn’t happen is if we ask for things with the wrong motives.”You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.” (James 4:3) For example: God I want a brand new car. Instead of Father please help me get a car so I can get to work and keep my job. Or God I need more money (and you thinking of all the ways you can spend it) instead of saying Father please give me great favor with my employer and supervisors so I can get a raise to help me pay my bills and give more to the poor and my church.

If you have no hidden sins and you know what hidden sins are; sneaking around and having an affair or watching porno, or stealing from your place of work, or causing dissensions by gossiping behind people’s back, or lying to cover up your weaknesses like DRUGS or alcoholism or homosexuality or any number of things that are too numerous to mention. You know if you have secret sins and you know exactly what they are and why they are being done. IF so, then cry out to God for His forgiveness and repent in sorrow and He will forgive you and restore you.

So the bottom line in getting your prays answered is this: have a clean heart that does not condemn you when you pray and your prayers will get answered in due time as you rest in assurances that God hears your prayers and loves you and will answer them. So stop doubting and stay strong and take courage, because God never fails and know He may test your faith during the process to see if you are faithful and mean business. “Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.” Don’t you think it’s about time you start believing and using your faith and see the answers come?
