Baby Boomers Religion

“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…..

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When is the last time you attended a church service and actually felt the move of the Holy Spirit hovering over the congregation and you knew Jesus Spirit was present? So much so you began to wept and repent and cast all you cares on Him? Is this still possible in today’s services in the 21st century? Although very rare it still happens today but there is a price to pay. That price is for the pastors and the congregation to fast and pray and ask for His guidance and help, then to let God take the service where He wants to take it. The Bible teaches the way its suppose to happen but few follow the way.

When is the last time you attended a church service and actually felt the move of the Holy Spirit hovering over the congregation and you knew Jesus Spirit was present? So much so you began to wept and repent and cast all you cares on Him? Is this still possible in today’s services in the 21st century? Although very rare it still happens today but there is a price to pay. That price is for the pastors and the congregation to fast and pray and ask for His guidance and help, then to let God take the service where He wants to take it. The Bible teaches the way its suppose to happen but few follow the way.

“What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up.”(1st Corinthians 14:26) Now I bet hardly any of you witness this in your services. No it’s all pre-programmed, so much time for worship singing, so much time for announcements and tithes or offerings, so much time for preaching, never mind if the Spirit begins to move in the worship portion of service they must get on to the announcements, take the money and cut off the flow of the Spirit. Preachers today don’t fast and pray and ask God what He wants him to say to the people (and God knows who’s there at each service and what they need) today’s preaching is nothing more than canned four part lectures written by someone else and distributed throughout the churches. Nothing original, nothing moving, just socially excepted Motivational talks, not conviction sermons at all. And you wonder why the morality in America is down the drain with a massive drug use and sexual promiscuity and crime of all types? You wonder why the younger generations for the most part have stopped going to church or stop going by the time they reach college-age? The churches have lost their power and instead of transforming society, society has transformed the churches. The churches have lost their power and instead of transforming society ,society has transformed the churches. Church services are more like a nightclub with entertainment instead of witnessing the power of the Holy Spirit saving and healing and moving among the crowd. Dead churches with dead people because the power of God and the Holy Spirit has left long ago. And who’s to blame? The blame falls right in the lap of every single pastor,priest, bishop, elder and deacon and leaders of every church.

Entire generations are growing up not knowing God it all and having no conviction of The murder of abortion and promiscuity of fornication adultery, their minds seared with wickedness and evil with no conviction of even church members living together without marriage and having children out of wedlock. Churches where pornography is rampant with up to 60% including even the pastors who are addicted to the perversion that will lead them to hell.

It’s mostly a pretend Christianity in America and many Christians don’t walk their talk at home or on the job after they leave the four walls of the church building for those who actually do attend service. Why would the world want Jesus and to become a Christian when they see Christians in the world act exactly like they do and seeing there’s no difference at all? You getting the picture yet? This is why American Society is so immoral in today’s world. The love of money and making money is the entire focus of the majority of the millennial‘s and other generations coming up.

Who spends time every day praying to the Lord and taking time to read the Bible on a regular basis? It can’t be many from the looks of the way America and the world is heading. And it is because of this lack of knowledge of the Bible that there is no conviction or discernment of the wickedness. God is not mocked for whatsoever a man sows, that will he also reap. If you live a life of sin without repentance and turning away from your sin, you will go to hell because God is no respector are of persons, you’re not going to get away with it and slide by just because it’s you.

It’s time for CHURCHES, church members and pastors and priest and everyone who wants to go to heaven to change their life and turn around and do things differently and pull out of the rut of the love of the world and the things in the world. It’s time to get your house in order starting now, not tomorrow, because Jesus is coming back , the second coming is real and he will come back and judge everyone of us according to our works that we have done in this body whether they be good or evil. Its time to witness to your family members to friends without hesitation or shame because their souls hang in the balance. God once again will move on the hearts of men and women and thousands will be saved, but it will be a remnant who are born again of the Spirit of God not the dead church members. Perilous times are coming whether you believe it or not wars and rumors of wars and earthquakes and floods and pestilence they’ve already begun look around. Prophecies of the Bible are falling into place it won’t be long till it’s all over. Will you be ready will your family be ready will your friend be ready? Jesus said you must be born again and that’s not an option. Jesus must know you or He will say depart from me. Every secret will be revealed and nothing will be hidden from God. The Bible says, “For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open” (Luke 8:17).He’s watching you even now and knows the number of hairs on your head. He gave you a way out, the way to heaven by sending His Son Jesus to die for you and wash you in His blood by faith to remove every sin as far as the east is from the west. You must believe in Jesus, give your life to Him and He will do the rest. You need to get baptized as He commanded. This is no game friend, this is life and your eternal soul hanging in the balance. And the good thing is, salvation is a free gift besides you cant earn you way to God, repent and take the gift. The gift of eternal life and live with God forever and ever….

The recent mass murders has a lot of people on edge and after Sunday’s mass murder of 26 Christians and the wounding of 25 others in a small town Baptist Church by yet another convert of Islam many are wondering how can this happen and how can a loving God allow this to happen?

All throughout the Bible we are warned that lawlessness and evil will take place and God is not behind any of it. Jesus warns “in this world you will have tribulation but take heart I have overcome the world.” You know the Bible speaks of wars and rumors of wars and famines and pestilence and earthquakes and men hearts failing them at the roaring of the seas and the things coming upon the earth.

If every good and perfect gift comes from the Father above then every bad and evil thing comes from that devil Satan himself. God is not the author of death, Satan is. God is not the author of killing and pain and suffering and starvation, Satan is. God is not the author of sin and sickness and disease, Satan is. So what does the Bible say about it all? “ The thief (Satan) comes to steal, kill and destroy.” (John 10:10) In another verse it says “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”(1Peter 5:8) Being on the alert means you stay prayed up daily and walk close to God. We all have bad days at times but Jesus has overcome the world and we will too. And how do we overcome the world? By the word of out testimony and our faith even to the point of death.

The old saying “everybody wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die applies here. Every single person who was saved and born again and had put their faith in Jesus who were killed in all these horrible massacres, are in heaven with Him right now, this very hour. My previous blog explains how not to fear death because Gods love overcomes our fears.

Americans and American Christians don’t really want to know whats coming because they won’t spend the time studying the word of God and are afraid to even read the Revelation or other books of the Bible. Well, the perilous times are coming and have really already begun. I honestly believe we have now entered the beginning of sorrows time period and we have not seen anything yet. Does that mean we just throw up our hands and say oh well there’s nothing we can do about it? No, not at all. What it means that is we are educated in the word of God and know the things that are coming upon the earth and we make ourselves and our families and friends aware of it all and then above all we make sure we have repented and stay humble and close to God in these times and lead others to the freedom of knowing whether we live or die we are the Lords and belong to Him. No one is guaranteed tomorrow, no one! No one knows when they will die! Gun shot, car accident, heart attack or a thousand other ways we could be gone tomorrow so let’s just get a grip and live life to its fullest walking in the knowledge we are saved (Romans 10:9,10) by His grace through the faith He gives us and that we stay ready any day or any time to go home to heaven to meet our maker.

And when you have discussions about terrorism and murder and killings and all the horrible things going on in the world do not let anyone think or say that these things are from God. Tell them “read your Bible for Pete’s sake” There it will tell you who is responsible, the enemy of your soul, Satan. God is love and because He loves us He gave His only Son to die in our place and wash away our sins. (John 3:16) Again Jesus warned us what’s coming and warned us to stay ready at all times. Someday soon He will return and rule and reign. All evil along with Satan and all his demons and wicked people will be thrown into the lake of fire that burns forever and ever. Until then, keep the faith in season and out of season and know you are loved and have a home waiting for you. Jesus said “My kingdom is not of this world” and neither are we, we’re just passing through.,,,,pray for those in pain and sorrow and for this country and our leaders…

Losing the Fear of Death

As a Christian we should not have a fear of death. Of course it is human nature to protect ones life and we absolutely should do so because we are the temple of God and His Spirit dwells within us. We are told not to destroy our temple as we are born again to do good works. There are so many things that we do that destroy our temple which you are well aware of as your flesh fights against your spirit waging war. Jesus said ” the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” We actually do the things we don’t want to do the Apostle Paul wrote because of one reason, “sin dwells within us.” And who can rescue us from this body of death, only Jesus Christ and Him alone.

Now concerning the fear of death it is written that “Perfect love cast out fear” Because fear involves punishment and the one who fears is not perfected in love. How is someone perfected in love? For starters we must love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul and minds. Then we must love our neighbors as ourselves. The Bible says how can we say we love God who we have not seen and hate our brothers who we have seen? So learning to love is paramount in our Christian life and it is a Decision, Not an Emotion! We can decide to love God, we decide to love our neighbors no matter what the circumstances and relationships are because we say to ourselves; God loves them and they were created in His image and He is not willing that anyone should perish, but wants them to have eternal life. There is none righteous, no not one, we were born into sin in this life because of the fall in the beginning.

If you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that when you die your going straight up to heaven and have that assurance in your heart, then why would you fear death or what man can do to you? The answer is your either not perfected in love yet or you are unsure of your salvation. You can be sure you know by faith in what Jesus did in the cross. “For we are saved by His grace through faith, not of works lest anyone should boast.” Let’s take a quick look at eternal, everlasting life guarantees written to us in the Bible. Jesus speaking said:

“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” (John 5:24) Really is there any need to go on? You pass from death to life when you believe that God sent Jesus to offer Himself up for us.

Maybe you need more so how about this verse: “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may KNOW that you HAVE eternal life.(1 John 5:13) So that you may Know not hope but know! And here’s another: Whoever believes in the Son HAS eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.(John 3:36) HAS eternal life means you possess it right now and it’s granted now while your alive and when you die there is no doubt your going to heaven.

And another one:

“In him we HAVE redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace” (Ephesians 1:7) and here is a list of other verses not that you need them.

“In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation– having also believed, you were SEALED in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge (guarantee) of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory. (Ephesians 1:13-14)

And this one: “But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning FAITH that we proclaim: that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, YOU WILL BE SAVED; For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and ARE SAVED.(Romans 10:8-10)

“Who through faith are PROTECTED BY GODS POWER for the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.(1Peter 3:5)

” For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of IMPERISHABLE , through the living and enduring word of God.”(1 Peter 1:23)

” For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2Tim 2:7)

I could go on and on with tons of verses, but you have seen with your own eyes that you have a home in heaven and you have eternal, everlasting security by faith in Jesus and nothing will rob you of your place in heaven. Don’t fear death even if you have to lay your life down for your faith because those times are coming and for many already have come. Jesus will never let you go and loves you so.

No matter what happens on this earth; wars or floods or famine or earthquakes or tornado’s or hurricanes or plagues or death or lawlessness or any other thing can separate us from the Love of God and our gift of salvation through Jesus Christ

Let me end this blog with a quote from Jesus: ” And this

is the will of Him who sent Me, that I shall lose NONE of all those He has given Me, but raise them up at the last day.

For it is My Father’s will that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have ETERNAL LIFE, and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:39-49)

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..
