Why Christians should not fear death

Human nature is self protective; no one wants to die unless they have serious mental issues. We all want to preserve our lives as long as possible and live peacefully without war or famine or pestilence enjoying ourselves with family and friends and relatives. That’s very normal but in today’s world it sometimes seems Death is just around the corner lurking to take us out by some disaster or disease or lawless act or war. We rationalize that only happens to other people not us but regardless we all know what’s inevitable and that is someday in the future our life will be over and our life here on earth will end. Younger ones hardly give it a thought, they live like they will last forever. Older ones see the clock ticking and it’s coming quickly which brings me to the point of this blog, are you ready to go? Do you live your life like this could be your last day? Probably not for most.

Jesus said in the gospel book of John “You must be born again to see the kingdom of heaven” that is your Spirit must be born again. Now you can debate all you want the various doctrines of the Bible and all the churches doctrines but the bottom line is this: you must be born again of the Spirit or you will never see heaven. How do you know you’ve been born again? Gods Spirit bears witness with your spirit that your born again. This means if you don’t know or have the witness inside yourself you’re in dangerous territory and the outcome of your afterlife experience is in grave doubt. Now I’m not at all talking about superficial acts like water baptism or church attendance, in other words those acts done on the surface to fulfill a doctrine, I’m talking about a hunger for God, a full surrender of your life to the Lord Jesus Christ without holding back your favorite sins and any fleshly desire which brings me another point. If you said a fifteen second prayer called the sinners prayer in most camps without fully repenting of your sins from your heart giving your life totally to Jesus, then it means nothing, your just fooling yourself. No you must be born again and know it inside.

How does this happen? By doing what Jesus said to do: confess your sins and call on the name of the Lord meaning call out to God from inside your heart for God to forgive you and save you through His Son Jesus confessing you believe that Jesus is His Son and paid your sin penalty of eternal death in hell by dying on the cross and shedding His blood and believing He rose again and is coming again. Now if you will do this and mean it with all your heart the Spirit of God will come into your spirit and things will change and you will know you’ve been born again. After this get water baptized as this is a direct commandment from Jesus. This shows you have committed your life to Him in likeness of His death symbolizing burial and resurrection. However; remember we are all baptized into one body by the Spirit of God. You must be born again!

Now when you are born again your spirit is sealed for the day of redemption says Ephesians 4:30 so now your old man is dead, your new in the spirit. Since you already died why would you fear death? That sinful man or woman died and now you live for Christ not for yourself any longer. No reason to fear your body dying, you’ll just cross over and go home to heaven.

But what if you’ve sinned a lot since you know for sure you were born again at one point? Then repent and mean it repent a lot and mean it and live Holy the best you can. If you blow it, repent again and never stop repenting and surrendering your life to Christ. Jesus will finish what He started in you and will never leave you or forsake you. He said no one is able to take them out of my hand or the Fathers hand as the Father is greater than He.

Make up your mind you will live for God and know you will be mocked and ridiculed by others and may even be persecuted but remember if they hated Jesus they will hate you, that is the worldly people. Once your born again Nothing can separate you from the love of God, nothing! And as this world heads towards a one world government and wickedness as in the days of Noah, God has a remnant of believers and His Holy Spirit will cover the earth. If you lose your life you will save it but if you try to save your life you will lose it in the end. Jesus said” be faithful unto death and I will give you a crown of life.” A Christian should not fear death but embrace it as it means we’re heading home. Whatever you see on this earth remember this is not your home. We are strangers and Aliens on this planet because our kingdom is not of this world, we’re just passing through…

Those Odd Ball Crazy Christians

The Bible says that Christians who are truly saved are a peculiar people. Very peculiar to the world, but family to each other. There’s a certain camaraderie among them and belief that is unsurpassed in the spirit world for one reason; all born again Christians have the same Spirit given to us by God through Jesus. Now does that mean all Christians agree on everything? Not hardly, but the one thing we all agree on is Jesus is the only begotten Son of God, that He is the word of God and became flesh and lived on earth and died on a cross and shed His blood for the remission of our sins, was buried then arose from the dead and ascended up to heaven and is coming back again someday to rule and reign. So this great hope that resides in Christians, resides in their spirit because it’s the very same spirit, the Spirit of the living God. “For by One spirit we were all baptized into one body” the body of Christ.

Now these odd people are odd because of the hope they carry of eternal life, living with the Father and His Son Jesus who created all things. This strange group of people know they are sinners and know there is no hope without Jesus in their lives. These people have the audacity to believe God is who He says He is and walk this life by faith in Jesus name, not by what they see going on around them or in the world. They are Peculiar only to those in the world who live by their fleshly desires far removed from knowing God though deep inside they know there is one God being evident by seeing His creation, knowing that all this absolutely could not have happened by mere chance.

You see there is also an enemy of God named Satan who convinced a third of the angels to follow him in his crazy scheme to become like the Most High and be worshipped but since he was defeated by Jesus on the cross and all power and dominion belongs to Jesus in heaven and in earth and God pronounced his sentence to the lake of fire for him and all the fallen angels when Jesus returns, his only goal now is to take as many as possible with him to hell and the lake of fire, so the battle rages on until the end. The battle for your soul and mind.

Now the majority of these odd ball Christians lived just like the worldly ones in the past, even worse in some cases, but the difference lies in the fact that while we were still sinners Jesus died for us and freedom from the fear of dying and going to hell (which is what we all deserve) passes away the minute we repent of our sins, turn away from the love of the world, and follow Jesus by believing in our hearts and confessing with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and following His example by being baptized.

You see there is no death for the redeemed, your spirit just leaves your body and goes to heaven as you await the resurrection and receiving your new glorified body that will live forever and ever and ever. Now that’s a promise you can stand on because God says it is true. Remember God is not a man that He could lie. Our Father is so pure so holy so perfect, nothing and no one could ever compare. There is coming a new heaven and a new earth the word says.

Us peculiar odd ball crazy Christians are not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but we are all “sealed by the Holy Spirit” awaiting the resurrection day. And that hope is deep within us. There is no soul sleep as the word says “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”

So why do you suppose Christians are so maligned and hated and killed and martyred and picked on? The reason is simple; Jesus said “remember they hated me before they hated you.” They love their sin and love darkness rather than the light and truth. Like a rebellious child they want their own way not Gods way even though He has provided a way out of the darkness with His Son Jesus. “ God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” God loves everyone, but everyone will not be saved, in fact the majority of people will burn in Hell because they refused the free gift of salvation that is there for anyone who believes.

How many times have you heard it said if God exist why is there so much pain and suffering in the world? The answer is still the same. “Because men love The darkness rather than light.” God did not create us like robots, everyone is a unique individual with total FREE WILL and those who deny God fall into sin and many invite the demons into their lives openly by inviting them in by the life that they lead and their love of the world, the love of money, the love of power, the love of lust and the love of drugs and the love of lying and murder and hate. These evil men and women led by the voices of Satan are the ones who have caused and are still causing untold suffering and death and every evil under the sun upon the earth, NOT GOD! You can read about them from Genesis to Revelation and in modern day history books and on the Internet. Vile men and women who love the darkness and not the light.

But surely your not one of them. Surely you want to break free of your sin and your addictions and heartache and deep seeded fear. Surely you will call upon the Lord to save you and turn from your sin. Surely you’re tired of the life you’ve been living and have seen there is no hope without God. You can escape you know and become an odd ball peculiar crazy Christian like the rest of us that are saved. If you feel any tug on your heart that’s God the Holy Spirit calling you to come home. Do it today do it now and join Gods unique family and become a part of the body of Christ. Gods salvation is free, but His blessings, His protection and His provision for you are conditional. You must surrender daily to Him and take up your cross and follow Him and obey His commandments the best you can, and if you are serious, the Holy Spirit will help you because Jesus said “ Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.

Furious about Pedophile Priest in Pennsylvania?

I’m sure you’ve seen or heard in the news about the recent discoveries of over 300 Priest pedophiles and homosexuals molesting over 1000 children mostly boys but some girls and this is only one state. How many are there in 50 states or 50 countries around the world molesting children by the thousands? Human trafficking and harvesting body parts is also happening every single day worldwide. Evil pure evil.

But why is the Catholic Church so involved? I believe I have some answers. The bottom line is the institution called Roman Catholic teaches heresy on several fronts led by the Pope and Vatican. The number one issue is they don’t teach their flock to be “Born Again.” They actually deny the necessity of the new birth. Jesus said “ You must be born again to enter the kingdom of heaven.” Without the new birth by the Holy Spirit you are a walking dead man or woman and no regeneration takes place in your soul. John chapter 3. This can only happen by repentance of your sins and trusting in Jesus Christ alone, then you become new and the old things are passed away. By faith righteousness covers you because of Jesus shed blood. Now the Catholic Church believes that happens at baptism but again how can a baby believe, they can’t.

Because the new birth is not taught even to their priesthood they still carry the heavy sin nature and they’re going to take their sinful heart with them, whether it be homosexuals molesting boys or heterosexual priests peering at pornography. The same goes for any denomination, not just the Roman Catholic Church. The Bible says we are so sinful that we drink iniquity like water (Job 15:16). We love the darkness and hate the light, and putting on the robes of religion won’t change that reality. This is why Jesus said that we must be born again.

Another factor that contributes to the Roman Catholic debauchery is they deny the total sin nature of man. Pope Francis has said atheist don’t have to believe in Jesus to go to heaven, and they don’t need Gods forgiveness nor do homosexuals despite the fact that the Bible states the wages of sin is eternal death in a lake of fire and scriptures state in the beginning God created male and female. And believe it or not they also embrace the unscientific theory of evolution.

Their church laws says Priest are forbidden to marry despite the apostle Paul’s writing that made it clear that it’s better to marry “than to burn with passion” (1 Corinthians 7:9). The Bible also tells us that Peter was married (Matthew 8:14), and that when he and the apostles traveled they took their wives with them (1 Corinthians 9:5).

Still the Roman Catholic Church has gone on for centuries hiding these insidious demonic criminals from man’s justice for all those years. we should also look at our own sinful hearts, come to the cross, and be born again. That moves us from being part of the problem to being part of the solution. Then we can reach out to others with the gospel and see them changed before they face a holy God on the Day of Judgment.

That includes atheists and agnostics, as well as the sexual predators who are hiding in Hollywood, in Wall Street, and in the pews of both the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches, in governments around the world and institutions you would never imagine like police departments, schools and day care centers. Wherever there are dark hearts deceived and not born again, the great sins of pedophilia exist. Guard your children and grandchildren at all cost and come out from among them, get out the Catholic Churches that teach heresy and lie against the truth of the new birth experience….

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…

Receiving Jesus (Blood Security)

Receiving Jesus (Blood Security)

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born , not of the flesh nor of the will of the flesh, nor or the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12)” I would suggest you read that verse over a few times until it really sinks into your spirit what the true meaning of it is. Jesus said you must be born again of the Spirit.

Taken in the context of the entire first chapter of John, it relates that Jesus is the word and became flesh and lived among us for of His fullness we have received grace upon grace. What exactly is His fullness and how do we actually receive Him? Is there some special act or work or thing we must do?

Jesus is everything and Jesus plus something is heresy. Jesus is the exact representation of God the Father and they are one and so is the Holy Spirit. Jesus came in the likeness of sinful flesh but never sinned. He verified His work and who He is by the miracles He performed. No one killed Him. He laid down His life willingly for all mankind that they might be saved. Everyone who has ever lived are sinners and there is no hope except through Jesus. Because of His great love for us He became sin on the cross and all the wrath of God was placed upon Him at that moment in time. The blood He shed became the payment, sprinkled in heaven in the Holy of Holies in a place not made with hands. Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness, so Jesus bled for us. The bible says He actually became the substitute for mankind. He actually took our place and satisfied the penalty for us that entire sacrifice that God required.

Religious people who love to keep others in bondage to them and their group list several things you must do to be saved, or justified or sanctified or made holy but they are all lies. Because Jesus is the only answer and cried out on the cross it is finished. What is it? It is just what was said above. He came to fulfill the law and now there is grace for those that believe. Can water wash away your sins? No! Only the blood of Jesus can do that and it is done by faith through Gods grace from the heart. Water baptism is commanded and should be done ASAP after your born again to symbolize the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, and that is what it is, a symbol and agreement of what you already believe in your heart. Jesus plus something is heresy. Jesus alone is the answer. You connect to Jesus blood by your faith not by baptism and it must come from your believing heart. It amazes me that God said without faith it impossible to please Him, so those who have not learned to use their faith and release it to God turn to acts or rules because they just don’t believe it.

Jesus said in Matthew 26:28 “For this is the blood of my covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness (remission) of sins.” Acts 10:43 says “Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him RECEIVES forgiveness of sins” Romans 3:24,25 states “being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation (payment, substitute) IN HIS BLOOD THROUGH FAITH…” Much more then, having now been justified by HIS BLOOD, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.” Hebrews 13:20 says “Now the God of peace who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:18,19 “ knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver and gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with THE PRECIOUS BLOOD as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, THE BLOOD OF CHRIST. Ephesians 1:7 says “In Him (Jesus) we have redemption through HIS BLOOD, the forgiveness of sins of our trespasses according to the riches of His grace.” Revelation 1:5 “ …and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins BY HIS BLOOD.” And finally in Revelation 5:9 “Worthy are you to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain and purchased for God WITH YOUR BLOOD from every tongue and people and nation.

“For it is the Fathers good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him (Jesus) and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through THE BLOOD OF THE CROSS; THROUGH HIM…”Don’t be deceived by religion, Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no man comes to the Father but by Him and His Blood by Faith through grace. Everyone is given a measure of Faith equally so don’t say you have no faith, you might not know how to release it, but God will help you if you ask. How do you receive Jesus? Simply by calling out to Him, confessing He is the Messiah and the only Son of God and knowing He was raised from the dead and asking Him to come into your heart and make you born again believing His Blood washes away all your sin past present and future.

A final word to those who are cowards: Jesus mentions Cowards as the first named to be cast into the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. (Revelation 21:8) Why would the cowards be mentioned first? Because the cowards want to please their families, their friends, their schoolmates and the world. They are afraid to be ridiculed for being a Christian. They are afraid and don’t want any sort of persecution to come their way because they believe in Jesus Christ as Messiah. They are coward’s period. Jesus said whoever loves Father or Mother or sister or brother more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever is not willing to take up you cross daily and follow Jesus is not worthy to enter into the Kingdom of God. Don’t be a coward and be loss, Jesus loves you so much; call out now to Him to save you and fill you with His Holy Spirit while there is still time. Blessed be the Name of The LORD……..

Unbelief and It’s Consequences

 

God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men. The problem in simple terms is that all men and women actually know there is a God of the universe, yet they suppress that truth in unrighteousness acts and deeds. One of the most remarkable things about humans is that everyone knows there is a God. How does everyone know this fact; because God has made it evident to every human being that has ever lived? Exactly! “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.(Romans 1:20)”  The real problem is they don’t honor Him as God, or even give thanks for that matter. Those kinds of people become futile in their speculations or more clearly; vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart is darkened. Those are the kind of people who profess to be wise and educated, but actually become fools. They call evil good and good evil with their darkened hearts. Romans goes on the state they exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.  It all goes back to not honoring God as God. No fear of God and judgments or rewards of God to His children, thus they worship and serve evil and sin.

Those who decide to reject God and His Son Y’Shua Jesus the Messiah, will eventually be given over to degrading passions, like sexual perversions of all sorts including homosexuality so those people will dishonor their own bodies. Then God gives them over to depraved minds who commit every form of evil and murder. Look around in the world right now, in cities and neighborhoods all over the world, what do you see? Morality is in the tank in most every place you look, in every country in the world. And where is the world headed but into chaos on every front. You see when people reject Jesus as Lord and refuse to believe in God, eventually, their hearts gets hard and they are turned over to whatever they love; and in every case it is some sort of evil.

In Noah’s day the world was full of every form of perversion and violence, and Jesus said that’s the way it will be when He returns in the Second Coming. We are almost there. What are the signs of a depraved mind? Someone what is filled with unrighteousness. This includes wickedness, greed, evil, being full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; people who are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, people who are without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving and unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who Practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but give hearty approval to those who practice them (Romans 1:29-32).

So you see unbelief is not just saying someone is an agnostic or atheist or an unbeliever; unbelief has major consequences to every human being. God is so loving and merciful and gives every person a chance and opportunity to find him, but in the end, someone who does not honor Him as God, meaning Jesus the Son and the Father, will eventually fall into every sort of evil and perversion, not to mention receiving the due penalty of their error and at the end of time be cast into the lake of fire reserved for the devil and his angels. Today is the day of salvation, repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved and spend eternity with Him in heaven.

Judge the evil and the evil people for what they are and stay away from them. John says those who practice evil are evil. Don’t judge you say? That is taken totally out of context and evil people use it to try to shame Christians into accepting tolerance and every sin. When Romans 2:1 says passing judgment on those evil sinners are without excuse because some that judge practice the same things and are without excuse. This includes religious and legalistic people who claim to be Christians and saved but are unsaved because of unbelief that faith in Jesus alone saves you and makes you born again. This would also include backslidden Christians living in the world and not living in grace and thankfulness to God who redeemed them. Don’t think there is no consequence for sinning or doing evil because you were once saved and born again.  Think of the times in your life when all hell broke loose because you were not serving God and were backslidden in your heart. It happened to me and it has happened to you as well. God loves us so, he disciplines us until we repent and get back on the right track. In fact Romans 2:9 says “There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also to the Greek, but glory and honor and peace to every man who does good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek, for there is no partiality with God.” So which would you rather have? Ok, then keep your heart and mind clean and stop being lazy and pray daily and God will protect your heart. Now there are times of testing which is worth more than gold, then we must prove ourselves when temptation and trials come and remain faithful that God is who He says He is and will bring us through every trial and safely home. But that is not tribulation and distress for doing evil, when you practice sin that’s what happens. Now I didn’t say when you slip up and sin as we all do, the bible says when you practice sin you will have tribulation and distress.

Another verse evil sinners and legalistic religious people just love to use out of context is Matthew 7:1-5 which says “Do not judge lest you be judged by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. And looking at the speck in your brother’s eye when there is a log in yours. First remove the log in your own eye and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brothers eye. What is Jesus saying? Don’t be a hypocrite when you’re doing the same thing or worse. And don’t judge your brother or sister in Christ who are born again. It’s the same thing as we talked about in Romans 2. Jesus never said not to judge evil and evil acts or fruit of a person! In fact you are to judge the fruit of someone, what they are producing in their lives and acts of evil or people of evil as it says “from such people turn away.” Not the sinners, because we are suppose to be teaching them and leading them to Christ, obviously, we don’t hang out with sinners because bad morals corrupt. But those who claim to be Christians and are practicing evil or preaching another gospel, we do judge those works. Interestingly Jesus called some people ravenous wolves, false prophets, vipers and judged their fruit in the same book. My point is simple; don’t fall into the trap when people yell at you “don’t judge” when they want you to compromise with their sin and show tolerance to every act of perversion which is taking place on the earth today in every form.

Unbelief has consequences. For your soul when you don’t believe that faith in Jesus alone gives you eternal life through grace, in your health when you don’t believe God heals, in your finances when you don’t believe God provides, in you trials when you don’t believe God will see you through, in your weakness when you don’t believe God delivers, in your temptations, when you don’t believe God will rescue you if you resist, on and on it goes. If we all examine ourselves, there are areas in all of our lives we can do better and decide to believe no matter what. Fasting is one way to rid you of unbelief and hear God better. We don’t fast enough. Fasting does not make you better in God’s eyes or give you favor; but what it does is open you up to hear God better and gets rid of unbelief. Praying in the Spirit is another and most important is spending time reading and studying the word of God. We must all get stronger and stronger in the Lord and the power of His might as perilous times are here and coming. It’s His power, not ours, His glory not ours, His grace that will see us through. There is none righteous, no not one, but yet we are the righteousness in Christ. We have all sinned and some of us have sinned way more than others, but the blood of Jesus cleans us all not matter what we have done, there is nothing that faith in Jesus shed blood cannot heal and cover. Jesus became sin for us so we don’t have to be lost or pay for our sins as that is what all of us deserve, but Jesus paid it all, all to Him we owe. Some day we will all be with Him if we only repent and believe…….
