You don’t clean yourself up to come to Jesus

Everlasting eternal life is only moments away from your grasp if you will simply do one thing; call upon Jesus to clean you up and save you. You can’t clean yourself up before you come to Him; He will clean you up after you surrender your heart to Him and mean it. One of the biggest lies of the devil is to tell you mind you’re too sinful and dirty to come to God. The devil will tell you that you have to clean yourself up first, then you then you become worthy enough for salvation. Nothing could be further from the truth!

You can be drunk and come to Jesus, you can be on drugs and come to Jesus, you can be a robber and come to Jesus, you can be a whoremonger or murderer or involved in discussing perversions or a racist or hater or just a plain loser and come to Jesus! He alone can set you free from all your past sins clean your spirit and fill you with His Spirit and wipe away all of your past and present sins. Jesus came and died for mankind while mankind was sinning. This verse proves it: “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”(Romans 5:8) There is nothing, absolutely nothing you can do to get you act together by yourself. You just come to Jesus just like you are and repent and call on His name and He will do the rest.

There are so many verses I could quote, but then this blog would be pages long, but I’ll close with this one; “ For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death” (Romans 8:2) Regardless of how you feel and the sins you have committed you will be set free from the law of sin and death and your home will be in heaven not in a burning hell. Call on Jesus ask the Holy Spirit to come into your heart and confess it with you mouth to someone, anyone and then get baptized as the Lord commanded….

Return to God and He will return to you

In Zechariah chapter one the Lord admonishes Zechariah to tell his people to return to Him. “ Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Return to Me,” declares the Lord of hosts, “that I may return to you,” says the Lord of hosts. Do not be like your fathers to whom the prophets proclaimed saying, “Thus says the Lord of hosts,”Return now from your evil deeds,” but they did not listen or give heed to Me,” declares the Lord.”

Today in 2018, the same call goes out to all people including you and me. The Father in heaven loves us with an unending love, an everlasting love which is hard for the human mind and heart to comprehend. His compassion and mercy is New Every Morning and He does not want to see anyone lost and spend eternity in the lake of fire, which will happen, If they reject His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ. The Father loves us so much that according to Chapter 13 of Zechariah and verse 7, He called for the sword against his own Son and planned Jesus death upon the cross. He willingly bruised His Son and He did it so you and I could be reconciled to God and live with Him forever. Jesus blood was poured out as a cleansing to wash away all of our sins. And we receive it by Gods grace through faith.

In today’s world with so many distractions and temptations and worries of the world, it’s easy to fall back into sin if we don’t follow Him daily and pray and read the Bible or have fellowship with other brothers and sisters who know the Lord. Satan never lets up on you because he hates you and wants to destroy you and your family and your wealth and your health and steal from you and kill you if he can. Satan wants you to throw in the towel and give up and go to hell. He wants to give you so much mental anguish and depression and self pity and shame for your sins and lack of control that you will never pray again, that you will never read a bible again, that you will never darken the door of a church building again, and keep you so bitter and angry and unforgiving that your soul will rot in hell. Don’t let him win and don’t be deceived, you can absolutely, positively, without a doubt according to the word of God return to Jesus and he will return to you and forgive you and receive you back into the fold and be in right standing once again with God and have peace once again in your heart. Satan is the father of lies and every negative thought comes from him, not God in heaven.

The good news is “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” and what God said way way back to the people long ago is still true today. “ Return to Me and I will return to you.” You can start over, there is a second chance and a third and so on IF we repent and do our best to live right as He intended. We all sin, we all fall short, but “Greater is He that is in me than he who is in the world.” And we overcome by our testimony and the blood of the lamb! Remember God did not even spare the angels and will cast them into the lake of fire. If He didn’t spare them, He won’t spare us unless we repent and live for him and keep our faith until the end. And who knows when that end will come for you or for me? Today is the day to call on the name of the Lord, repent and confess your sins and get baptized if you haven’t already. Jesus said whoever believes and is baptized will be saved. God Bless…

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…

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…

Pulling no punches – Get born again or go to hell when you die 

Jesus said to Nicodemus (John 3) " truly, truly, I say to you unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of heaven. When Nicodemus ask how is this possible, Jesus answered, " Truly, truly, I say to you unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven" " That which is born of flesh is flesh (water) and that which is born of Spirit is Spirit." The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it but do not know where it comes from or where it is going, so is everyone who is born of the Spirit." Just like the wind the Spirit moves on us and seals our spirit for the day of redemption. " ( Ephesians 4:30) Jesus told Him don't marvel that He said you must be born again. Does a person know if they have been born again? Absolutely! You know a change has taken place inside you and your eyes are opened to things of the Spirit. You find yourself not liking sin anymore or doing the sinful things you did before you believed and were born again. Little by little your life changes and the growing in grace process takes a lifetime. You will still slip and fall, you will still sin, but now your sins are washed away and sin no longer has control over you. 

How does one become born again and know for sure they are born again and saved? One word "BELIEVE" Believe what? Believe that the Father sent His only Son because He loves you and if you believe on Him you will not perish, but have eternal life. The Apostle Peter says it this way, that we are chosen by His foreknowledge and sanctified by the Spirit for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by His blood. 
"Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By His great mercy, He has given us NEW BIRTH into a living hope through the RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST FROM THE DEAD, and into an inheritance that is IMPERISHABLE, undefiled,and unfading, RESERVED IN HEAVEN FOR YOU, who through FAITH are protected by God's power for the SALVATION that is ready to be revealed in the last time. (1 Peter 1:3) For a little while you may have to suffer various trials, so that the authenticity of your faith – more precious than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may result in praise, glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 
It is so very possible to love Him though you have never seen him who gave Himself as ransom for our sins upon the cross over 2000 years ago. In this present world and this present worlds condition you can stand firm in your faith regardless of the cost because you know that JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAME YESTERDAY TODAY AND FOREVER! We are truly pilgrims on this earth for this is not our home for our home is in heaven with God on the new earth and new Jerusalem that revelation speaks about. Today is the day of salvation. Believe, repent of your sins and ask Jesus to save you. Confess to others your belief and watch as God moves mountains for you when you become born again. If you refuse this gift of God through His Son Jesus only hell and a lake of fire awaits you because the wrath of God rest on those who don't believe…..

Gods message never changes regardless of changing Cultures 

Sin is still sin and the wages of sin is still death. People who think they will make heaven living immoral lifestyles are deceived and sadly mistaken. If you have bought into the doctrine of “once saved, always saved” without living a clean life purposefully sinning, then again you are deceived. The Bible clearly states “without holiness No One shall see the Lord” and what is holiness? Keeping yourself unstained from the world and forsaking sexual sin which leads to you sanctification. If you’re not, then repent, God will forgive you. 

If Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever then all the same blessings and rules still apply today even if the cultures go to hell in a hand basket. Repentance is rarely preached today in churches or Christian tv programs and spoken of by friends or family. 
People calling themselves Christians are living in fornication and adultery and bound up with pornography. These things will keep you out of heaven. Repent, God will forgive you. There is a list in the Bible of those not going to make it to heaven. 
Here’s the list: ” Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,

10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. There is a way out; repent and turn to Jesus. 
Again this warning from Revelation: But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Again there is a way out; Repent and turn to the Lord so that times of refreshing will come to you. 
Today there are wars and rumors of war and now the media is openly talking about nuclear war coming which hasn’t been even discussed openly in years. It’s time to get yourself and your household ready for perilous times in the not to distant future. 
Many antichrist spirits are working their evil in the world, dividing men and nations so they will destroy each other as Satan hates you and all humans and wants them in hell where he’s heading at the end of time. He gets humans to sin and then condemns them for the very sin he caused them to commit. However; he is a defeated foe as Jesus arose from the dead and made an open display of victory and He’s coming back again. Jesus is our rock our redeemer, our Lord and our Father forgives all who call on His Son to be saved by faith in His name and what He accomplished on the cross and resurrection. Believe and be baptized.
If you are caught up in any sin, repent and stop it. Your soul depends on it, and where you will spend eternity forever. We have all sinned and fallen short, but the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin and we must walk in the Spirit trusting Him to bring us through to the end. Jesus says come to me and give me your life and I will forgive you and you will live with me forever. 

Serve God not yourself or the world and it’s lusts. You can’t do it by grit and determination in your flesh, that’s where so many fail and give up because they never understood when Jesus said “if you save your life you will lose it, but if you lose your life for my sake you will save it.” So repentance and total surrender from your heart is necessary and paramount to live a victorious life. Does that mean you quit life? Absolutely not, it means now you live a fulfilling life with peace in your heart no matter what happens in the world. God has never changed, society does, but sin is still sin and millions will pay with their soul by compromising the word of God. Enter by the narrow gate and be saved….

The Expression on their Faces bears witness against them 

Today around the world and especially in America marches and rebellions of hate against government leaders and against law and order trying to stop freedom of speech for anyone disagreeing are openly sinning against God and humanity in vulgar wicked squealing and offensive cursing and hand gestures even in the presence of their own children and in public places. This will have grave consequences for those rebelling, not from other men, but from a righteous and holy Father in heaven who will, if not sooner or in their lifetime, surly judge them now or in the Great White Throne Judgment at the end of time. 

Listen to what Isaiah writes in chapter 3 “……Because their speech and their actions are against the Lord to rebel against His glorious presence, the expression of their faces bears witness against them. And they display their sin like Sodom, they do not even conceal it. Wow to them! For they have brought evil on themselves.

Say to the righteous that it will go well with them. For they eat the fruit of their actions. Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with them, for what he deserves will be done to him.” 
“Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”(1 Samuel 15:23) The far left tout phrases like “resist” or “rebel” having no fear for the sins they are committing. Rioting and destroying property, lighting fires and beating innocent people for no reason but the hate and anger spewing out from their wicked hearts. Killings and murders will occur in the future if this rebellion is not halted. The streets of America could turn into a giant civil war zone. 
And right in step with them all is the liberal main stream media covering up the wickedness happening around the world for the sake of the globalist new world agenda who want want total open borders and trade and could care less about the safety of the people. Intertwined is the entertainment industry whose stars are worshiped by deceived multitudes and follow their blaspheming ways and homosexual agenda. Who could believe a homosexual movie or a coming of age movie as they like to call it would win the Oscar for best picture? The arrogance of limo riding millionaires stated by one ” We actors are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life.” Really? That statement is way over the top. Forget about the rest of the labor force and society and living a clean and respectful lives believing in the one and only creator living a quiet and peaceful and fulfilling live here on earth. Never mind celebrating the life of teachers or preachers or plumbers or doctors or managers or anyone else for that matter, such a lie full of pride and straight from a demons mouth. 
The sins of the world and false religion are out in the open and quite evident for all to see except those dark hearts who have been blinded by Satan who will kill and destroy them in the end. These people are the same ones fooled by Islam who will eventually control every nation not by war but by over breeding and take over from within. Their dull minds never consider most of Europe is already lost and America is barely hanging on thanks to the Mexican birth rate here. The average Muslim woman has 8.1 children against non-Muslim races of 1.6 worldwide. Do the math! In a very few short years Muslims will over populate the United States and take control if refugees continue to flow into the country. Is this what you want for your kids and grandkids? No, but the blinders of the left refuse to see what’s really taking place. Their own families are at risk. 
Corruption is everywhere in all governments and increasing rapidly. Even formerly true religions are openly committing apostasy. Recently the Pope of the Catholic Church worldwide refused to prosecute paedophile priest who have committed tremendous atrocities against children. And the pizza gate worldwide ring has been hushed up by the main stream media. Child trafficking around the world is at an all time high and little by little being exposed. Sexual slavery by the elite around the world in every country is also being exposed. Everything will be brought to light eventually. Witches are openly holding curse gathering against the President and post meetings online on social media. Evil is warring against good and lines are being drawn everywhere. 
If there’s ever been a time to pray for America and the world it’s now. The battle rages for the souls of people and nations, but we know the ending of this story, God wins and just when it looks like good is defeated, Jesus will return and slay the wicked and set up His reign for a thousand years. Until then Christians are in a war, a spiritual war, not against flesh and blood,but against evil in high places and principalities whose influence on evil men and women throughout society and media and entertainment and governments must be stopped by the Spirit of God working through believers who pray and exercise their faith in God. For those who repent and follow Jesus there is hope and salvation that only comes through faith in the one and only Son of God who loves them…
