Why your prayers don’t get answered..

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?

The real tragedy of compromising on same sex marriage

Jesus was discussing the sin of adultery with the Apostles and made the statement: “ You have heard that it was said, You shall not commit adultery. “ But I say to you that everyone looking upon a woman in order to lust after her already has committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Matthew 5:27-28) So the real sin is in the heart, it doesn’t have to be following through with the physical act.

The same is true of the sin of homosexuality. If you agree with same sex marriage and homosexuality, you have sinned in your heart and you will be judged on that basis even though you may not have been involved in the physical act yourself. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” If you agree homosexuality is ok, you become a homosexual in your heart, just the same as an adulterer, the thought in you heart makes you an adulterer and you will be judged as one.

All sin is judged and written about in the Bible but the sin of homosexuality is especially called out because it is sinning against your own body and evil spirits of perversion come and take up residence in your soul. That’s why there is such a mental and emotional battle in a homosexual’s mind causing sickness depression or other issues because at one time they knew deep inside their soul it’s a major sin and they will not make it to heaven, so all they have is this life and they know it, but love their sin to much to change, they choose eternal damnation for the few years of a homosexual relationship, how sad.

Many places in the Bible there is great warning against homosexuality, so if people are warned they are able to stop it and repent just like an adulterer can stop it, repent and be forgiven. Romans says God gives them over to a reprobate mind to do what dishonors them because they reject truth and God. Romans 1:25 “They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.” “In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.”

1st Corinthians 6:9-11 goes even further and states: “ Or do you not know that the unrighteous ones will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor coveters, not drunkards, nor verbal abusers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Clearly homosexuals will not go to heaven including the deceived “supposedly Christian homosexuals” (which is impossible). But wait, look: “And some of you were such. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” So there you go, some WERE in the same boat, but repented and now are on their way to heaven. No sin is beyond the blood of Jesus!

Lastly, in the final book of the Bible, Revelation 22:15 the warning of hell is given, “Outside are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the sexually immoral, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and everyone loving and practicing lying.” It’s plain as the nose on your face; homosexuality is sexual immorality and a mortal sin because you are sinning against your own body that God gave you which is suppose to be His temple for the Holy Spirit to reside, not evil spirits and demons invited in by homosexual sin. There is hope in Jesus and salvation in his name. And don’t be deceived, if you compromise on this issue you will be judged just the same…

There are no denominations in Heaven

So many people are hung up on the name on the Church door or sign on the Church property. Others are absolutely obsessed about their denominational doctrines even though many have no idea what the doctrines of the Church they attend even are.

The early church did not have this problem like it exist in the world today. The early church was Catholic meaning comprehensive all inclusive to all mankind as Christian. It was not the Roman Catholic Church of today, nor was it Protestant which simply means “protesting against the Roman Catholic Church”

The gospel was simple (as it should be today) That is “ For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” John 3:16-17. Furthermore we are commanded to be Baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit which represents Jesus death burial and resurrection. In the new covenant baptism also represents the cutting off from the world, the spiritual circumcision from the world and its lusts. That is the basic gospel pure and simple and any church or any person preaching anything except Jesus Christ and him crucified is to be cursed the Bible actually says.

Now there are also other doctrines that include the following of signs to all believers like speaking in tongues, casting out devils and laying hands on the sick so that they will recover. Also the doctrine of the Lords Supper, that is taking of bread and wine representing Jesus body bruised for your healing (by His stripes you were healed) and drinking the wine (or fruit of the vine) that represents His blood shed to cover all of our sins. Then living Holy, that is abstaining from sexual sin which is our sanctification, and living by faith (it will be tested) which means we become righteous not by our own works but by faith in Jesus. And finally the doctrine that Jesus is coming back, coming again to take us home to a new Heaven and a new earth when the dead in Christ shall rise immortal and incorruptible and sinners will also rise to perish in the lake of fire which burns forever and ever.

We are to show our faith to others by our good works because faith without works is dead, but doing good works is not salvation. We cannot work our way to heaven by any means because Jesus said “I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life and no ones comes to the Father but by Me.” (John 14:6)

What name you have on your church doesn’t matter as long at your Priest or Bishop or Pastor preach Jesus Christ and Him Crucified and teaches repentance and believing in the name that is above every other name and following through with baptism. We are not ever saved by how good we might think we are ( all our good is filthy rags to God) but by His grace we are saved through faith and even that doesn’t come from us. Jesus told a man “You must be born again of the Spirit to see the kingdom of heaven” you see Jesus must know us and that can only be done through His Spirit not by anything we do.

On that great day to when the roll is called up yonder I’ll be there and so will believers from every denomination, every nation, every nationality, every tribe every Ethic group who have surrendered their lives to Jesus ( you can’t do it anyway) and put their trust in the blood shed by our Lord and Savior of the world Jesus Christ. Make 2018 your year of surrender day by day to Jesus and trust Him alone for eternal life….when you think no one cares, God does, when you think no one loves you unconditionally, God does, when you think there is no hope, there is, in Jesus Christ.

For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved. (Romans 10:10)

The Man in the White Robe 

The man in the white Robe you saw in your dreams 
This man in the white robe wants you to know that He loves you with a love you can barely understand or comprehend. 
This man knows everything about you. He knows your fears and He knows your pain and disappointments in this life. He knows everything about your life from beginning to end, and there is nothing He does does not know about you and your family. You may already suspect who He is, but know nothing about Him. The man in the white robe is Yeshua Jesus Christ the Son of God. He came out of love for He is love, the creator of all things and He obeyed His Father God to come to earth in the form of man for one purpose; to die on the cross and shed His blood for your sins and rise again from the dead. He requires faith that you simply believe that He is the Son of God and repent of your sins and be saved. 
This man you saw in the white robe is the everlasting, only begotten Son of the living God who was, and IS and is to come again. 
His name is Jesus and is the Prince of Peace, He is the Lilly of the Valley, the bright and morning Star. He is the Savior and King of Kings and Lord of Lords, He is eternal glory and will rule for ever and ever in the New Heaven and New Earth and New Jerusalem coming down from heaven above. He wants you and your loved ones to spend eternity with Him and Millions of other believers from every race, tribe and tongue who have received Him as Lord. This man in the white robe appeared to you because He knows your circumstances, how you have been taught lies from others and how dangerous it is to let others know you follow Him. He came to you because men cannot and are blocked by laws and rules and governments to share the gospel truth with you. He came to you because He is the bread of life and with the water He gives you, you will never thirst again. Inside you will find peace and happiness though the world outside is a cruel and evil place. He will never leave you, nor forsake you and His Spirit will live in you forever. 
The Easter season is a celebration of Jesus resurrection and your guarantee of eternal life if you believe in him with all your heart. This man in the white robe is The Way, The Truth and The Life and no man can come to the Father except through Him. 
If you believe that Jesus is Lord and Gods Son and believe God raised Him from the dead and confess it with your mouth, you will be saved. 
This man in the white robe says “come learn of me, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light” All you who are burdened and heavy ladened come to me and I will give you rest and you shall find peace for your souls” Then be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit as soon as you can. The man in the white robe named Yeshua Jesus Christ loves you so much that He willingly laid down His life for you to pay for your sins and then arose from the dead to live for evermore and so will you as you repent and confess Him as Lord and live for Him. He is the resurrection and the life! 

Three things that are conditional with God

The love of God is inseparable, but His blessings, His protection and prosperity are conditional. That depends on you and how you live. It’s so very true that Gods love for mankind, the human race that He created is without any conditions because God is love and His compassion is new every morning. Regardless of what you may have done yesterday, God in His great mercy and grace will forgive you if you truly repent from your heart and turn away from the sins in your lives that so easily entangle you. The proof of His love is sending His son Jesus to die for you and even the whole world. 
And as for our love for Him, the Bible states that nothing is able to separate us from the love of God. Nothing at all. Romans 8:35 states ” Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?


37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.

38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,

39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” So if your born again, you have no need to worry about the love issue.
However; the three things that are conditional I mentioned at the beginning of this blog which are blessings, protection and prosperity are very much connected to your obedience to His commandments and your own personal relationship with God and don’t think they are not. As a Christian think about the times in your life when things were going really well for you and consider how you were living at that time. On the other hand think about the times you have been in bad shape and things were going awful for you in your life and think about how your walk and relationship with the Almighty was at those times in your life. So really you already have the answers just by your own self examination. When Jesus was asked ” what must I do to inherit eternal life” what did Jesus say first? He said ” You know the commandments” So even the “Ten Commandments” apply today to you and me and we all have broken them. To break one is to break them all the Bible says. In other words we better be living the best we can everyday, the best we know how, but today we are not under the Law, but the Law of the Spirit in Jesus Christ. Consider what Romans 8 says: 
Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.

3 For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,

4 so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

5 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.

6 For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,

7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,

8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

9 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.

10 If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.

11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

12 So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh—

13 for if you are living according to the flesh, you [fn]must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”

16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God,

17 and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Himso that we may also be glorified with Him.

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
So walk in the Spirit and God will grant you blessings, protection and prosperity! If not, now you know why…..

Jesus Emptied Himself to become a Human 

Do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,

6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,

7 but Emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, andbeing made in the likeness of men.

8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,i

10 so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

12 So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling;

13 for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.

14 Do all things without grumbling or disputing;

15 so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world.(Philippians 2:5-15) 

In the form of God. “Christ is the same nature and essence as God” Jesus emptied Himself, “The Kenosis” (emptying) of Christ during His incarceration does not mean that He surrendered any attributes of deity, but that He took on the limitations of humanity. This involved a veiling of His preincarnate glory (John 17:5) and the voluntary nonuse of some of His divine prerogatives during the time He was in the earth (Matt. 24:36), form is the same word used in verse 6 of Philippians’s 2. That means Jesus was completely God and truly man. To deny either the deity or humanity of Christ requires denying the other. It was through self denial and obedience Christ won sovereignty over all peoples and things. Jesus Christ is Lord, He is God (Yahweh of the Old Testament) 

In the same way we must empty ourselves and surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ to the glory of the Father producing good fruit by telling others about the great mystery of salvation and eternal life that comes only through faith in His only begotten Son Jesus. We are justified by faith in Jesus. So we all must work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. Not Work for it, but work it out in our personal lives, remember it’s by grace we are saved through faith and that faith makes us children of God and we receive the”Promise”, the very same promise Abraham received from God, everlasting life having been justified by faith if we continue in the way until death….

You Must Hear Gods Voice for Yourself 

God is speaking today, are you listening? He speaks over and over to your spirit during your lifetime if your are truly born again. People mock and laugh when you might say “God told me ” or “I really felt like God is telling me” or “I heard a still small voice inside me say” or “I feel this great impression to do this or that.” If that’s the case with you, don’t worry, God is speaking to millions everyday, many times a day, all over the world and your not alone.

How do we know that God speaks today? Simple, the Bible explicitly says so. Here it is: ” MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, AND I KNOW THEM, AND THEY FOLLOW ME. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.” (John 10:27-28) That seems plain enough to me, Jesus said so. Many folks believe only the second part that no one can snatch a born again believer out of His hand, but totally disregard the first part where He says My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me. I wonder why that is? I think a lot of it has to do with dead churches and dead pastors who “Having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away.” (2 Timothy 3:5) preach from the pulpits today and do not preach the full gospel of Jesus Christ. But the biggest reason people deny Jesus speaks to us as individuals today is one of two things: 1) unbelief or 2) lack of knowledge.

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER. (Hebrews13:8) This verse shoots down any and every excuse anyone could possibly come up with regarding any supernatural experience and gifts of the Spirit today! People who hold only a form of godliness but deny its power are very deceived by santanic religion and doctrine. I might include not only people but churches and denominations as well. The devil keeps them in the dark by deception and lies. Three times Jesus told us “Do not not be deceived.” Don’t let yourself be deceived. Seek truth from the Bible as it will set you free indeed.

So getting back to the theme of this post of hearing Gods voice, how do we do that? The first thing is to make absolutely sure you are saved and born again. You cannot hear Gods voice if your not saved and born again and have the Holy Spirit living inside you. What did Jesus say? “Jesus answered, Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of flesh is flesh, and that which is born of THE SPIRIT is spirit. DO NOT MARVEL THAT I SAID YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.”(John 3:5-7) How does it happen? Jesus answers this question. ” THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.” (John 3:15) He who believes in the Son has eternal life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” (John 3:30) Believe in your heart (not just your head) that Jesus Christ is Lord and confess it by speaking it out with your mouth, Romans 10:9-10 says. Is there any other thing to do, actually yes there is REPENT, which is confessing your a sinner and need God and then actually turning away from your past lifestyle of sin without God. Is there anything else? Yes, you need to be baptized as Jesus said and did, representing His death and resurrection. But be warned; getting baptized without first repenting and confessing Jesus from your heart will be just getting wet. We are saved by grace (unmerited favor) through faith and that not of ourselves, it is a gift of God. (Ephesians 2:8) Is there anything else? Yes, be filled with the Spirit. And how do I do that? Just ask Jesus to baptize you in His Spirit. John the Baptist said (speaking of Jesus) ” and He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and Fire.” (Matthew 3:11, Luke 3:16) So if your born again will you hear God? Absolutely but you must be quiet and listen.

In today’s world it’s very hard to get quiet and listen with all the distractions of the world, but setting aside a few minutes of quiet time will help tremendously. Get alone somewhere and just talk to God and then listen and talk some more to Him. Here’s a novel idea; ask Him to talk to you! What’s it like? It comes from your belly/chest, not your head, and moves up and you hear words or short sentences. Most of the time it will be very short ,maybe even only a couple of words, sometimes a long sentence. And when You hear it you know it is God and not your  own thoughts and it’s not an audible voice, it’s like hearing thoughts from deep inside you and they always line up with good, not evil, although you can get warnings to avoid danger. God loves you and wants your love and praise and He is still the same yesterday today and forever. With the turmoil in the world today, you must get and stay close to God and hear His voice for yourself….

The Holy Spirit is Proof Jesus is God and our only way to the Father

The Holy Spirit is our Proof Jesus is God and Our only way to the Father. 
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision. Are you one? Father open their hearts and remove the veil from their eyes. Thoughts and discussions, books and seminars, debates and meetings, churches and parishes; looking, seeking, doubting, believing, wonder, discussions; all to make a point, all to prove a method, all to sway a belief.
When one looks for the truth; can they handle the truth? Many people cannot. Some can and rejoice! With hundreds of churches and denominations scattered throughout the world, how can a person know absolutely know beyond any shadow of a doubt they have found the truth? How can anyone possibility have any assurance they have found the way, the truth and the life? There is a foolproof method, a perfect answer, a resounding yes to the question of the ages. Can you handle the truth? I think you can. 
The Holy Spirit is the proof that Jesus is God and is alive and teaches you all things that lead you to the Father through His Son Jesus Christ. If one does not have the Spirit of God, he cannot know God and is lost and perishing. No religion in the world except Christianity has the Holy Spirit. All other Religions lead people into bondage by the laws and rules they are required to keep, but the Holy Spirit sets one free from the laws of man and instead gives power and love and boldness to those who receive Him. 
Here is a couple of verses that back up what I am saying. First, John the Baptist who prepared the way for Jesus by preaching a baptism of repentance made an astounding statement in Matthew 3:11 ” As for me I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I and not fit to remove His sandals; HE WILL BAPTIZE YOU WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE.” Has this happened to you? Another verse that Jesus Himself spoke in John 3:7,8 says “Do not be amazed that I said to you, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN. The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; SO IS EVERYONE WHO IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT.” Have you been born again? 
The bible says we can know we are saved; do you know for sure? How does the Holy Spirit prove Jesus is Lord and alive; by indwelling in our hearts, by living in us. Did not Jesus say I will send the Holy Spirit and He will be with you forever? He did. But how can we know? Ephesians 4:30 ” do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God BY WHOM YOU WERE SEALED FOR THE DAY OF REDEMPTION.” Again in Ephesians 1:13,14 ” In Him (Jesus), you also after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation-having also BELIEVED, YOU WERE SEALED IN HIM WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE, who is GIVEN AS A PLEDGE of our INHERITANCE with a view to the redemption of God’s OWN POSSESSION, to the praise His glory.” If you have been sealed by the Holy Spirit and are born again, you know it without any doubt! Second Corinthians 1:21, 22 states again ” Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God, WHO SEALED US AND GAVE US THE SPIRIT IN OUR HEARTS AS A PLEDGE.” No one can possibly know God, have a relationship with Jesus or be saved unless they have the Spirit of God within them. 
It is Jesus Christ alone that baptizes believers in the Holy Spirit. If you have never cried out to God to fill you with the Holy Spirit, do it now. If you have never asked forgiveness and repented of your sins, do it now. If you have never confessed that Jesus is the Son of God, do it now. If you have never been baptized in water, do it now. It is the BLOOD OF JESUS that washes away your sins, it is grace through faith that saves you. It is the Holy Spirit that comes into you and seals you. It is Jesus our Lord who baptizes you in the Holy Spirit. Don’t wait, pray now, believe now, have faith now, love God and people now. When you do this, I promise you will know God is Real, You will know Jesus loves you and you will have the proof within you Jesus is Lord! No other religion offers this, no other gospel but Jesus Christ and Him crucified is gospel. No other gospel has a risen alive Savior, no other gospel has a God of pure love who forgives and forgets your sins. No other God is the same yesterday, today and forever and changes not. What He did long ago, He does now, today; call on Him with all your heart.

There’s Sin In The Camp

There’s Sin In The Camp 
What camp is that, whose camp? What do you mean? What sin, whose sin, my sin? Please explain yourself, converse please. 
Ok, ok let’s talk about this, maybe we should bring it all out in the open how sin in the camp has destroyed the nation and culture and why your such a mess. 
Who’s a mess, you mean I’m a mess? What makes you think I’m a mess? Who’s been talking to you, friends, neighbors? I bet it was family or perhaps someone from work. Surely not from other Christians or my church, I rarely go and hardly know anyone, besides I always put on my smiley face in front of others; you know, to fit in and sorta play the game. 
So, this is all about fitting in and playing the game? Fitting in with who and what game exactly is that? 
Come on now, you know everything is about fitting in and playing the game; the game of life we all play and being good tolerant people to everyone. 
Well I see what your saying, but I’m sure not everyone plays the game of life like you do; maybe the majority, but who likes being in the majority? I would rather feel special and in a class of people who are so unique that they definitely stand out in the crowd. To most they are a little peculiar I guess. But still, there has been and is sin in the camp. 
What is this sin in the camp business you keep talking about? Are you saying I’m sinning in my camp? And what is my camp anyway? 
I saying that many many Christians who at least call themselves Christians are hiding many sins and have for some time and have let the love of the world, the lust of the eyes and money drag them away from God like a like a Cowboy ropes a calf and ties him up. The calf has no idea what just happened and is bound and can’t move until it’s released, but that release may never come. 
I get the feeling your trying to judge me here, after all I’ve been through, which you have no idea of, maybe I’m entitled to hide a little and just try to go along with the flow. 
No, not really, but I am concerned about your soul you see, God has recently spoke to me and many others about the sin in the camp and true Christians need to repent and fast and return to Him with all their hearts while there is still some time left, although time is getting very short. You see, it’s so obvious that the troubles and immorality in the land is because the believers, not the world have allowed sin in the camp. 
Really? Are you saying it’s the Christians fault things are like they are? What sins are in the camp? 
The sins of the heart that have not been confessed to others and God. All sin begins in the heart, all sin; no matter the degree. That’s why God says to guard your heart for it is desperately wicked.
Your suppose to confess your sins to others and not just to God? How embarrassing. Not me, I’m not telling anyone my sins. 
The word says to confess your sins one to another and pray you one to another that you might be healed. Obviously, you don’t go around telling all your sins to everyone, but a close brother or sister in the Lord or your Pastor or Priest or leaders can lift that black cloud off your back and set you free. There is a catch though, you must first forgive others so that you can be forgiven. By the way, you did admit you have some hidden sin, that’s the first step; admitting your a sinner, even if your saved and born again. We all sin, but God is calling us all to live holy and return to loving Him like we did when we first met Him. It’s a choice you know. 
Yea, I know your right, it’s just that I have done so many bad things and sinned so much; I don’t know if God will forgive me and restore my faith in Him and myself to live a righteous life. There are sins I have hidden for a long period of time. 
Listen, those sins are only hidden to your family and friends and neighbors; nothing and I mean nothing is hidden from God. You can run from Him, but you cannot hide. So actually, what’s the point of running or trying to hide from God? Your only fooling yourself or did you forget He said “every idle word you speak will come out at judgment time?” Come back and return and follow Him, He will forgive you or why else would He say ” if MY people will repent, humble themselves and pray I will forgive their sins and heal their land” 
Yes God does say that, I do remember that verse. I don’t feel right inside anymore, I’m anxious and depressed a lot because I know I’m far away from God and not living right.
Well, there’s no time like the present, even today, even now just believe and repent and confess your sins to God and tell Him your sorry for being away from Him for so long and you want to come home. Go ahead, tell Him, He will hear you and get that sin out of the camp….
