Is Football your Idol, your obsession Sports?

It’s started again, that NCAA and NFL programming that keeps you glued to your television, hiding in your man cave away from your worries on Saturday’s and Sunday’s and Monday’s and even on Thursday nights. Totally obsessed and checking your fantasy starting lineup after slapping down your doe to join a fantasy league. Now you watch every single game you can so you can see how your players are doing. Your mates are now an afterthought and until after the Super Bowl in February next year, close relationships are put on the shelf until then, when you take grudgingly take them back off the shelf and try to repair six months of damage and in many cases are shocked and wonder why things aren’t quite the same.

Watching wealthy players who disrespect our country and our flag and could care less they are destroying the very golden goose that feeds their over the top lifestyle while the vast majority of fans works their tail off everyday just to make ends meet, and feed their family. Intertwined in the coming six months is Baseball through October and into November and the NBA Basketball starting up in the fall and lasting until summer. Now many can go from one Idol and obsession to another without skipping a beat.

Sports in and of themselves are not harmful and many of us played all of them through high school creating a fun filled atmosphere of family and friends all linking together to have kinship and Friendship and great fellowship and fun, but today’s obsessions are quite different. Lost in the generational shuffle of actual face to face interaction, people today are transfixed on social media screens of their phones, clicking self portraits and sharing intimate details of their lives for the world to see with depressed personalities if the praise doesn’t come with likes and messages of praise and adoration of new hairstyles or clothing or vacations or foods. And now beginners begin as soon as their little hands can hold a phone and grandma’s and grandpa’s even get into the act fearing they are being left behind in a cultural revolution of high tech and false realities. The future memories and thinking and knowledge will be and already is becoming the phone. No need to study, just ask the phone for answers to all of life’s questions or so it would seem. But the truth is far darker and will be much more sinister.

Lost in the world of all these obsessions is the true meanings of life itself. Why am I here, does God exist, what happens when I die, how can I be happy or successful and find true love, is there life after death? All these answers are in one book; the Holy Bible. That book that few read any longer, the one that taught your elders about the Messiah, Jesus Christ who was and is and is to come. The Son of God who loves you and died for you so you can live forever in heaven with Him if you only believe and put your trust in Him who says I will never leave you nor forsake you. Sadly most don’t know Him at all and young ones are concerned much less, being taught the truth the gospel of Jesus Christ. Now there are Bible phone apps, most for free, but rarely used. Taking up space on the home screen are all the sports apps and music apps and game apps. Society now worships apps with sports and pornography and everything imaginable that takes people away from God. This nation is in very serious trouble and judgment is coming for the people who refuse to repent and turn back to God. Judgments come in many forms like the wildfires burning in the west or flooded cities like Houston and New Orleans or earthquakes or various other weather anomalies. By open borders we are being invaded and war rumors are in the news more each day. God allowed invaders to defeat and enslave Israel, will the same future be for America? It will be if the Idol worship does not cease and the hundreds of killings of babies doesn’t stop. How much longer will Gods grace rest on America with such wickedness and corruption? Repent and call upon Jesus and if you die in all this mess, you’ll live will be saved. “For whoever loses his life for my sake will be saved, but whoever saves his own life will lose it” The answer is surrender to God and train up your children and grandchildren to know God. There is none righteous, not a single one, only Jesus can help you and save you, give your life to Him today and join the millions who have come to know Him and live forever…

Did Jesus say ask me into your heart?

I’ve heard many Christians from several different denominations say on several occasions that no where in the Bible does it say we need to ask Jesus in our hearts, even going so far as to call this a heresy and false salvation to those who do it. Really? It appears they don’t know the Bible or what Jesus actually said in Revelation 3:20. Why? Because they don’t spend any time reading Revelation. They neither understand it or write off the the entire book as some sort of symbolism.

And what does Revelation 3:20 say? “ Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me”. What is the door? It can only be your heart. So if someone hears the gospel and opens the door of their heart to Jesus, then by His Holy Spirit He comes in through the doorway, which is your heart, to your spirit and you become born again by believing with your heart and confessing with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. For through Him by the Holy Spirit is grace and faith and the only way to have fellowship with the Father in heaven.

When you ask Jesus into your heart He comes in and dines with you meaning he takes up residence in your spirit and seals it for the day of redemption (Ephesians 1:13, 4:30 and II Corinthians 1:22) and through the Holy Spirit that He sends you He teaches you to observe all things He commands. If I were you I would open your heart and ask Jesus to come in and save you. You can’t clean yourself up, only Jesus can clean your house and clean you up as you surrender to Him all the areas of your heart.

When the people ask what must I do to be saved in Acts what was the response from Peter? Repent and be baptized and you will receive the GIFT of the Holy Spirit. So am I saying baptism alone saves you? No I’m not and neither does the verse; however when you read all the conversions in the book of Acts what did those who believed do right away? They got baptized in water and so should we do the same because Jesus commanded it. You’ll also notice that they all believed FIRST and Confessed Jesus and were pricked in their hearts when they heard the Gospel. That’s why Paul said in Romans 10:8-11 “

“ what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart,”that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved.

It is just as the Scripture says: “Everyone who believes in Him will not be put to shame.”For there is no difference between Jew and Greek: The same Lord is Lord of all, and is rich to all who call on Him, for “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

The gospel of salvation is fairly easy to understand if you hear with your heart and not some man made doctrine. Paul says the gospel is simple and it is the gospel of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. So you hear with your heart (not your mind only), you believe with your heart ( not just your mind), you obey from your heart, (not just agree intellectually)you confess Jesus is Lord from your heart, (not just words from the mind spoken), you obey Jesus commandment to be baptized ( not to join a church) and you ask Jesus into your heart which is by the Holy Spirit.

“For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.” (1st Corinthians 12:13)

15And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16“He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17“These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”(Mark 16:15-18)

Jesus wants us to ask Him into our heart. He wants us to ask Him to baptize us in the Holy Spirit. For our heart is the door and He is knocking. Will you open the door? Ask Him in right now…

We are closer to home today than when we first believed: “To the baby boomer generation”

“We are closer to home today than when we first believed” To the baby boomer generation

Life didn’t turn out for many of us like we expected (are you bitter about it?) Some of us lost children along the way.

Some of us lost marriages

along the way. Some of us never reached that goal standard we set for ourselves in our careers and financially and especially spiritually.

Some of our children have forsaken God and gone the way of the world without God in their lives and we are shocked and dismayed and beside ourselves. Yet we have never stopped loving them.

“Many people are so afraid of going to hell that they have no faith to get to heaven.” You can quote me on that one.

Perfect love cast out fear and if you fear then you’re not perfected in love because fear involves punishment and there is no punishment for the blood bought born again believer who walks in the Spirit and not in the flesh.

Why? because “ in the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God He was with God from the beginning and through Him nothing was made that has been made. He is the light of the world and whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

He who is faithful till the end shall be saved, and we’re closer to the end than when we first believed. We cannot shrink back and turn away from God like Solomon did at the end of his life saying all is vanity. We can’t live for God most of or lives and then at the end deny Him like King Saul did and be lost. He who is faithful to the end shall receive a crown of life. Until your last breath hold on to what you first believed and never let go of your faith that saves you. For its by grace we are saved through our faith not of works lest any man should boast.

Jesus said “will I find faith on the earth when I return” Peter told Jesus I’ll die for you and never deny you, really? Have we denied Jesus in our lives by our actions? I say we have at one time or another in some form or another, examine yourself and your life and see.

Be faithful until the end. If God did not spare the angels who rebelled, He will not spare you either. Be Faithful at what? Faithful at the two things God commanded us in the new covenant. “You shall love the Lord your God with all of your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength and your neighbor as yourself” Cry out to God to help you love Him more as we should.

Many will find out on the other side they missed the higher calling of God because of their unbelief. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and forever and The word says, Jesus is the word and these signs shall follow those who believe, in my name you shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover, you shall cast out demons, they shall speak with new tongues.

The apostle Paul said in Romans the word of faith that He was preaching is near you and in your mouth and in your heart that if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved for with your heart you are justified and with your mouth you confess resulting in salvation. Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. If that’s the case why do you fear? Because you don’t love God enough or live for Him? Lay aside that sin that so easily trips you up whatever it might be and repent. After this born again experience takes place in your Spirit you follow the Lords command and get buried in baptism wash away your sins by faith in the blood of Jesus and circumcise yourself from the world declaring to all heaven and earth you’re now a child of the living God forever separated unto God to perform good works.

No one loves God if you don’t keep His commandments your only fooling yourself if you think so. We ought to walk as He walked because we are set apart to serve Him. Now most of us have blown it many times in our lives but those who repent and get up are forgiven. Go into all the world and preach the gospel baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you and low I am with you always even till the end of the age. We are in the beginning of sorrows in my view and the beast one world system has plans to be set up by 2030. Are you ready? Are you warning your children and grandchildren? Are you getting your house in order and preparing for what’s coming upon the earth? And above all are you personally growing stronger in the Lord and calling on Him daily? He loves you, but how much do you love Him? Don’t love the world or the things of the world. For what gain is it to become wealthy or commit sexual immorality and lose your soul?

Nothing matters more than right now, today, making a full commitment to Jesus Christ. Pick up your cross daily and follow Him or do you just think this is all a game? You will reap what you sow and you will give an account for every word and every deal you have done unless you repent and call upon the Lord. Do it today and don’t be ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of salvation to those who believe whether Jew or Gentile…Many don’t fear the Lord today and laugh and scoff at Christianity but judgment day will come and the price of denying Salvation that was brought through Jesus will be everlasting fire separated for God for eternity…..

Jesus is all in All

Jesus Christ was with the Father in Genesis, He is the one who walked in the cool of the evening and spoke with Adam and Eve. He is the one who talked to Noah and gave him directions on how to build the Ark. He is the one who allowed Job to be tested and carried on all the conversation with him. Jesus is the one who appeared with the angels and broke bread with Abraham before destroying Sodom and Gomorrah. He is the God of the burning bush that Moses saw and the one who gave him the Ten Commandments. Jesus is the God, the Word who became flesh and laid down His life for humanity and took the keys away from Satan of death and Hell and rose again from the dead. Jesus is the creator who created everything that has ever been created and nothing that has been created was created without Him. All authority has been given to Him by the Father both in heaven and in earth now and in the age to come. Jesus is coming back soon to gather all that are His and destroy the wicked. He will reign for a thousand years out of Jerusalem and destroy Satan with the breath of His mouth and cast him along with the false prophet and the Antichrist in the lake of fire to be tormented for all eternity. Jesus has prepared a place for us and created a new Jerusalem,1500 miles in width and length and height that will come down and sit on a new earth for this earth will be burned up at the end of days.

Jesus is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End who Was and Is and is to Come. He is the Way the Truth and the Life. He is the rose of Sharon, the bright and morning star, the good shepherd. He is the healer, He is baptizer of the Holy Spirit. He is the lamb of God, the Lion of Judah, the bread of life, the river of life, the soon coming King, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords and no one can come to the Father except through Him. He is the door, He is the gate, He is eternal life for all those who believe. All of heaven adores Him. All of earth will see Him when He returns and in judgment every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess Jesus is Lord, but don’t wait, believe in your heart today that He is Lord and the Son of God and that He died for you and God raised Him from the dead and confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and be saved today. Surrender your life to Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to live in you, then get baptized as He commanded. For whether you live or die you are the Lords so live for Him now and receive His mercy and grace and be saved today. Jesus is waiting and watching, come home, come home, for He loves you so..

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.

He came to you because He is the bread of life and with the water He gives you, you will never thirst again.

Is Homosexuality off the Sin List? 

So do we take homosexuality off the sin list now? How about adultery or fornication? How about pedophilia? Perhaps polygamy.
The sin list varies greatly by individuals and churches. So how is it that the government and the courts get to decide what you can believe, or how you behave based on your personal beliefs or religion?
Tell me the difference between what’s going on now and what was going on under Hitler. Now the hatred isn’t just towards the Jews; you can now add in all bible believing Christian’s into the mix.
Oh but wait, the “one percenters”, you know the multi-million dollar Corporations like Facebook, Twitter and even Starbucks? Now they get to tell you what and how to believe or else. Not exactly freedom of speech or religion anymore is it?
 Try getting a Muslim bakery to plan your gay wedding or take pictures,  they won’t do it. Ah, but that’s ok, they are Muslims (and would stone every gay person in America if they could get away with it.) It’s just the dirty rotten Jews or Christians. Such hypocrisy in America its beyond sickening.
I have a couple of gay friends. I have a gay cousin. I also have gay nieces. Do I hate them all? Please…don’t be stupid? Of course not, but to hear the media explain it; every bible believing Christian hates gay’s and the LBGT community. What everyone really hates is the cruel and unusual punishment received by any class of citizen based upon their beliefs and religion, whether it’s loss of business, money or harassment in any form. What people really hate is the Hypocrisy from government and the public whether it’s directed to or from the gay or straight communities or towards individuals.
Everyone just wants to tell Christian’s to “shut up and feed the poor” and stay out of all other social issues and government, please…
Look, if I believe the entire bible and hold to every word as truth and do my best to follow the teachings, then I will always believe homosexuality, adultery and fornication are sins and each person must make the choice whether to sin or not. To repent or not. To believe or not. But if I own a bakery, or  Pizza parlor or photography studio or any other business, I’m certainly not going to go against my beliefs in the Bible and what I feel deep in my heart to be right for the sake of compromise. In all things I must answer to God first and not man.
In the same vein, if I cannot get what I want from a business, I simply go to one who meets my needs. Come on how hard is that to do? No it’s about making a statement  even to the point of ruining lives and families; just for the sake of making a statement and proving ones point, never mind the human cost involved.
The media has done a masterful job of turning gay’s against Christians because they don’t agree with their lifestyle. Things have turned from tolerance to totalitarianism concerning the LBGT community. From acceptance and getting along to in your face radical fascism. Scare tactics work well among a politically correct society. Now that gay marriage is the law of the land will the gay community show tolerance towards those who disagree, I think not; in fact I think every effort will now be made in the courts to shove the gay agenda in the face of every facet in our society without regard to the consequences.
At the end of the day what matters is loving God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and your neighbor as yourself. We will all stand before our creator some day and be judged or not depending if JESUS knew us as He said “you must be born again to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. That judgment is for every single person who ever lived, and the outcome is solely based on choices made in this life….,

Releasing the power of God in your life

Releasing the power of God in your life
Releasing the power of God in our lives takes our cooperation using both God’s grace and our faith. Its grace and faith combined that releases the power of God. His grace is always there because of His great love for us and what Jesus accomplished fulfilling the law and taking upon Himself our sins and offering His blood as the payment for our transgressions.
But unfortunately, people abuse grace by believing everything is just totally up to God. They believe they have no part in what our sovereign God does. They believe it’s totally up to God whether or not they are saved or healed or live or die or have a good journey in life. Then if it doesn’t happen they blame God for all their troubles. Some believe grace gives them a license to sin instead of following the word and living a separated and holy life. Grace by itself will not accomplish an experience of knowing or walking with God, it must include our faith believing in our hearts. We are saved by grace through faith and that not of ourselves; there is a balance.
Then on the flip side there are abuses concerning faith. There are people who take scriptures and try to make God do something. An example would be to get money or believe anything that is not the will of God for your life. Faith does not make God do anything. Faith is not something you do in order to make God do something. We walk by faith, we live by faith we are justified by faith, we are sanctified by faith, we pray by faith and we are saved through faith. God is not the one that needs to move, He is not the one that is stuck in a situation. God moved over 2000 years by sending His only begotten Son Yeshua Jesus to earth on our behalf. Jesus is not going to die again; the grace is there to be saved through your faith believing. The ball is in our court so to speak.
Jesus is not going to get stripes on his back again for your healing, He already did that, He paid for your healing. It is up to us to release our faith on the grace that has already been provided and BELIEVE God when He said “IT IS FINISHED! We must trust Him to make it Manifest in our soul and bodies.
God anticipated everything we would ever need and He did it by His Son Jesus Christ. It’s already done. So…Faith is simply your POSTIVE RESPONSE to what God has already provided and done by GRACE. You do not have to beg God in hours of prayer, but simply believe God loves you and provided everything we need in this life. Thanking Him and worshiping and praising Him for His wonderful grace while believing releases your faith as you even quote His word back to Him of His marvelous promises. His word does not return to Him void. ASK God to manifest in your life and your body or family or finances or job or whatever the need is in your life. Didn’t He say in the word that we know He hears us and if we know He hears us that we will receive whatever we ask for? Yes He did.
Stop fretting and worrying and having unbelief and believe the word when He says; they must believe that He is who He says He is and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Then you can enter the rest that God says He has for His people. There is a rest for the children of God, so rest in Him. Don’t let unbelief block you from entering God’s rest. Faith and rest is believing God is who He says He is and Jesus fulfilled the law so we don’t have to and He provided for all our needs.
All things become new and all old things pass away when you believe, so believe God. “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” (John 3; 36) The grace is always there, God has given us all a measure of faith so faith is always there; now ask God to manifest His blessings in your life and enter His rest………
