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..

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 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?

36 Just as it is written, “FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED.”

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….

Are you living under a Curse? 

For many people, there are so many things going wrong in their lives, they just can’t seem to break out of it and find some peace. One thing after another seems to go wrong. I have met several people in this world from time to time who actually seem to be a magnet for trouble. Without really even trying, trouble seems to follow them wherever they go and whatever they do. Have you known someone like this? Most likely you have at some time or another or know people now that fit this pattern of behavior or locked into this situation frequently. So what causes this to happen in people’s lives? Examining scripture reveals several things as causes, but really it all boils down to just one or two issues in their thinking and lifestyle of living. Looking at believers and non-believers, there is striking similarities to the causes, but the believers definitely have an inside tract to overcoming this tragedy in life with some minor adjustment of their faith standards. 

First of all for the believer who has repented and confessed Jesus as Lord and has been born again by the Spirit, there is victory just ahead when the realization of veering of track away from that first born again experience is realized. Galatians chapter 3 is one to study and make that change in your thinking. In that chapter beginning with verse one we read: ” You foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, ( false teaching through evil spirits) before who eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? This is the only thing I want to find out from you; did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? Did you suffer so many things in vain–if indeed it was in vain? So then does He (Jesus) who provides you with the Spirit and works miracles among you, do it by the works of the law, or by hearing by faith?” 
” For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a CURSE; for as it is written, Cursed is everyone who does not abide by ALL THINGS written in the book of the Law, to perform them” Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for “The righteous man shall live by faith.” However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, ” He who PRACTICES THEM SHALL LIVE BY THEM.” Christ redeemed us From the Curse of the Law, having become a curse FOR US– for it is written, ” Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.” In order that IN Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the PROMISE OF THE SPIRIT (see Acts 2:39) through faith.” 
So we see those who try to live by the Law of works are actually under a curse. They can show their faith by doing good works, but living under the Law brings on a curse in your life. Why? Because it is absolutely positively impossible to live by the Law. No human can live by the law because to break just one law or commandment means they have broken the entire law and under the law there is no grace, no salvation, no peace, only coming judgments in one’s life. Their lives are full of trouble. 
Everyone that lives has had trials and tribulations but living by faith in Jesus Christ overcomes them all. For a Christian, many come to test your faith, to prove you’re really trusting in God alone and not trusting in anything in yourself or the world. Our very best is just filthy rags to God. We deserve nothing but hell for our sins, but Jesus took our place because He alone is worthy.! Now here’s the remarkable mystery: we are justified by faith in Jesus. Do you realize we are justified? We are justified! We are just-as-if-we-never sinned, justified in Jesus! Jesus FULFILLED THE LAW FOR US, so we don’t have too.
So this sums it up in Galatians 2:16 ” nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus so that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the Law, since by works of the Law, no flesh will be justified.” Confess your freedom in Christ, confess out loud you are free from the Law and will live by faith in Jesus Christ. Live righteous and holy, show your faith by your good works, but know you are saved by Gods grace through faith in the Master, Jesus Christ who laid down His life for you and is coming back a second time.
I’ve heard many say when they cross over to the other side that they will get into heaven because of something they did for good while living, or saying, I’m a good person, I haven’t killed anyone. Deceived to say the least. The Bible says that the wrath of God rest upon those unbelievers who didn’t love the truth, and so does the curse if you’re living by the law of good works and not faith. Put your faith in Jesus alone and not in your works or the law…..

Jesus has always lived

Many people have heard that Jesus is the Son of God and was born of the virgin Mary. But how many stop and realize that He was with the Father before He took on the form of human flesh?Many references in the old testament speak of the coming Messiah. I’d like to show a couple that prove He was with the Father from The days of eternity. In the Old Testament (or the first covenant) in the book of Micah chapter 5 it reads; “But I asked for you Bethlehem Ephrathah, too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you One will go forth from Me to be the ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, from the days of eternity.” Therefore He will give them up until the time when she who is in labor has born a child. Here we see that Messiah Jesus Christ came from the days of eternity and was with the father all the time. When the prophesied time came, God the father put Him in the belly of Mary as human flesh and He gave up his dwelling place in heaven with the father to become a man and become our propitiation (our sacrifice ) the one who takes our place to save us from our sins. Jesus obeyed the father and did this willingly out of pure agape love, love that man cannot comprehend or understand until he is born again. 
 “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us, and the government will rest upon His shoulders and His name will be called wonderful Counselor, mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of peace; there will be no end to the increase of his government or of peace, On the throne of David and over His kingdom to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forever more.” Here we see in the statement He is Eternal Father, Prince of peace. Jesus is eternal and one with the Father, has always been and always will be. The kingdom in this passage refers to the kingdom of God that Jesus set up when He came and lived among us died and was resurrected. The kingdom of God is forever and ever and ever.
 In Exodus 3:2 Messiah Jesus is called the angel of the Lord and it is He who appeared in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush that Moses saw, the bush that did not burn up or was consumed. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. 
Turning to the new testament or new covenant in John chapter 8 verse 57,58 Jesus speaking to the Jews said “your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day and he saw it and was glad.” So the Jews said to him you are not yet 50 years old and you have you seen Abraham?” Jesus said to them “truly truly I say to you before Abraham was born I am.” So here Jesus himself says that he was around way before Abraham was even born in the heavens with the father and the angels. Notice he said before Abraham was Born “I Am.” The very same phrase that Moses heard from the burning bush when he asked God who shall I say that sent me and God says I am that I am, tell them I am sent you. 
Looking further in John chapter 1 we read “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God He was in the beginning with God, all things came into being through Him and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life and the life was the light of men. Here we see the messiah Jesus Christ is the living word of God and that every thing that has ever been created or come into existence was created through him. Messiah Jesus Christ the Only begotten Son of the living God is the voice of the Father. It goes on to say that He is the light of the world and 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 are born not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man but of God. “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. They saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. For the law was given through Moses grace and truth we realized through Jesus Christ. Now if Jesus is the only begotten Son of God then there can be no other, no other God at all, no other name under heaven in which we must be saved! No one has seen God at any time the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father He has explained Him. God is spirit, no man has ever seen God in his existence, his spirit being. Yet He assumed visible form which men saw in Old Testament times and in Jesus, man could see God. Christ gives life He gives grace and truth. John the Baptist stated “behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world” and in him messiah Jesus Christ we live and move and have our being (exist)for we are his offspring (children), born again by the Spirit of God.
This my friends is why Jesus says I am the way the truth and the life and no man can come to the father except by me. This my friends is also why Christianity is the right way because only Christianity has the Son of God Jesus Christ as the cornerstone for salvation. Without him Jesus you cannot know the Father, you cannot come to the Father, you cannot be saved and born of the spirit and you’ll be lost. If you put your trust in other gods like Allah or Buddha or Hinduism or any other false god, you cannot be born again and go to heaven and know the only true God, the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. Jesus said you must be born again. For the wind blows and you hear the sound of it but do not know where it comes from or where it is going, so is everyone born of the Spirit of God. This my friends is why there so much hatred against Christians and Christianity and in the name of Jesus and the cross; because it is the only way to heaven period. The demons of hell blind those souls so they won’t be saved. But to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ you shall be saved and the scales will fall off of your eyes. That’s God’s promise. Allah doesn’t love you, Buddha doesn’t love you nor any other false gods of hundreds of other religions. Those religions want domination by rules and works, but Jesus really does love you. God the Father really does love you. The One true God doesn’t want sacrifice of yourself or your life. He says don’t you know “I require mercy and not sacrifice?” Jesus said the Father and I are One and if you have seen me, you have seen the Father. Jesus is the perfect representation of the father. You must be born again to see the kingdom of heaven. Are you born again? You have the witness within yourself. If your not then repent of your sins, believe that Jesus is Gods Son and died in your place, give your life to Him and get baptized as He commanded. He will not leave you as orphans but will come to you when you call upon his name. Do it today do it now, come into His kingdom and we’ll meet in heaven…..
