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…….

 

 

 

Many people especially Christians, think righteousness is something gained by working hard at it, something you strive for, but it isn’t at all. Sanctification and holiness is something you strive for, but not righteousness.

True righteousness is not something derived from the law, but righteousness is imputed directly to you from God on the basis of your faith in Jesus Christ. In other words if you believe Jesus Christ is Gods Son, the Messiah, the Savior of the world and Lord, God reckons (credits) that faith you have in Jesus as righteousness. And because you are righteous then you are justified. And you are an heir of all the blessings of Abraham. That seems impossible but it is the truth. Let’s take a look…

Abraham was not Jewish at the time when he became the father of faith. He was 99 years old when he was circumcised and God made the old covenant and the nation of Israel began to form. So as God had planned it, Abraham became the father of many nations as a gentile and on the basis of faith God approved him as righteous because he believed God. He didn’t become righteous by sacrificing bulls and lambs, he became righteous by his faith. James 2:23 says “and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS,” and he was called the friend of God.

Now look at Philippians 3:9 and notice the Apostle Paul said that he didn’t have a righteousness of his own derived from the Law (the old covenant) but we have through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of FAITH! So you and me are both righteous because we have faith in Jesus. It’s not an earned thing we do, it’s by the Grace of God. Are you getting this? I hope so.

Now the Apostles taught this gospel, this word of faith and said in Romans 10:9,10; “

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 with the heart a person believes, resulting in RIGHTEOUSNESS, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in SALVATION.

I am righteous and you are righteous if you believe from your heart in Christ. Isn’t that great news? In the new covenant as in the old God reckons our faith, our belief in Jesus as righteousness. The new covenant is the blood of Jesus, which He shed for all mankind. It was paid once and for all.

“ and having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation , being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek. (Heb. 5:9) THEREFORE He is able to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”(Heb. 7:25) Repent and confess Jesus as Lord if you haven’t already done so and you too will be righteous.

“Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.” (Hebrews 7:25)

“ And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.” (Heb. 9:27-28)

Now your job is to live a sanctified and holy life free of sexual immorality, to love God and your neighbor as yourself.

“Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.” The words “it was credited to him” were written not for him alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.” (Romans 4:20-25) Do you now understand how we are saved by grace through our Faith in Jesus? And that faith comes from God and is not of ourselves but freely given to those who believe…Stop trying to earn salvation by doing things from yourself to please God. Have faith and Love Him and your neighbor and abstain from sexual immorality and get baptized as Jesus commanded….

1God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. 3And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.

      5For to which of the angels did He ever say,

            “YOU ARE MY SON,

            TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU”?

            And again,

            “I WILL BE A FATHER TO HIM

            AND HE SHALL BE A SON TO ME”? (Hebrews 1:1-5)

Many people don’t realize that pre-incarnate Jesus has always been there from the beginning with God and in fact God made everything, this world, this universe, and every single thing that exists, whether seen or unseen through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the great “I Am” and the word. John says it this way “ 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.” (John 1:1-3)

Back to Hebrews 1:3 “Jesus is the Exact representation of the Fathers nature and Jesus is the one who upholds ALL things by the Word of His Power.”In other words, everything in the universe works by the WORD of Jesus. The sun, the moon and the stars all obey His Word thus orbiting and obeying His word.

So you realize that:

“While the earth remains,

Seedtime and harvest,

And cold and heat,

And summer and winter,

And Day and Night

Shall NOT Cease.”(Genesis 8:22) So much for global warming destroying the planet. I’ll take the word of God over anyone else’s doomsday theory’s. At the end of time though, this world will be burned up and God will roll up this universe like a robe the Bible says. Because God Has a new universe and new earth and a new Jerusalem for us at the end of time. (Revelation 21:1,2) Check it out:

“But about the Son He says:

“Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever,

and justice is the scepter of Your kingdom.

9You have loved righteousness

and hated wickedness;

therefore God(Jesus)Your God(The Father) has anointed You

above Your companions with the oil of joy.”

10And:

“In the beginning, O Lord, You laid the foundations of the earth,

and the heavens are the work of Your hands.

11They will perish, but You remain;

they will all wear out like a garment.

12You will roll them up like a robe;

like a garmentf they will be changed;

but You remain the same,

and Your years will never end.”

( Hebrews 1:8-12)

So you see Jesus is everything, He IS and was and is to come He’s always been there with the father and even before the foundation of the world He decided He would lower Himself a little lower than the angels and empty Himself into Mary by the Holy Spirit and become flesh so He could offer up Himself with His blood to make purification of sins. Now when we believe with our hearts and confess with our mouths after repenting and show our good works in keeping with our repentance we are saved and being baptized we die to sin by faith and we will also be raised up in the resurrection to live forever as immortals, never to sin again, to be with the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit and the Angels forever and ever and ever.

All authority in heaven and earth has been given to Jesus. The price has been paid, His work is finished, your sins are forgiven if you repent and call on His name and stay faithful to the end. Father God gave His only begotten Son because He loves you and wants you with Him forever. Surrender to Jesus and I’ll see you there someday in the glorious New Jerusalem that sits on a new earth…..It has never even been imagined or even entered the heart of man what glory God has for us who are faithful to the end….

During this coronavirus spread around the world this virus is scaring a lot of people. But is it a real pandemic? All the data has been wrong so far. Half a million have died around the world since January but if it was as severe as Media broadcast there would be 50 million dead on the basis of figures from the Spanish flu of the 1900’s. With 7.9 Billion people on the earth, half a million would not even register as a percent or fraction of a percent.

So how many actually die daily around the world before this coronavirus started? According to research an estimated 157,000 people According to the World Mortality 2017 report published by the United Nations, the number of deaths in 2015 was 56.567 million. This means that an average of 155,224 human deaths occur each day. This also translates to nearly 6,500 deaths per hour, 107 deaths per minute, and about two deaths per second. Based on the same report, approximately 30.97 million deaths occurred in Asia, 10.59 million in Africa, 8.1 million in Europe, 3.7 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, 2.9 million in North America, and 265,000 in Oceania. So as you can see the reality of normal deaths so far exceeds the coronavirus deaths this supposed pandemic registers like flu deaths which happen every year.

So why all the fear mongering? Why all the masks? You be the judge, but no one can even decide if wearing a mask even protects. Many who have worn mask have tested positive. Many wear the same mask everyday without washing or disinfecting them. So what’s the point? The point is to CONTROL YOU. Shutting down the world economy is the goal. They don’t give flip if you’ve lost your job and can’t pay your bills or lose you home and car because you can’t work. Don’t think for one minute the Globalist care for an ounce for you or your family and children, they are pure evil.

Now listen, God has allowed this for one reason, unrepentant sinful nations and people who refuse to stop their sin and corruption and murdering. So now judgment has arrived and it will only get worse. Swarms of Locusts are popping up around the world which is an entire plague to cause crop failure and famine. Drought, earthquakes and flooding in other parts of the world all combined is making men’s hearts fear knowing what’s coming in the world , but still they refuse to repent and allow a time of refreshing come from God.

You know what the book of Daniel and Revelation says (maybe you don’t as people are lazy and don’t study the Bible) God says my people perish due to lack of knowledge, are you in that number, hopefully not? All the idols have been torn down: NFL all sports movies Almost every form of entertainment and relaxation, movies ,favorite restaurants, all High School and Colleges and the events that they have. People are literally going nuts and they even committing suicide. All due to this lockdown that didn’t have to happen, it’s all been planned for years.

So where does that leave us? In the hands of the Almighty and His Son Jesus Christ. Throughout it all this millions will turn to Christ, perhaps even you and your children. There is no hope without Jesus. And how do you occupy until he comes as He said to do?

First there is nothing that can separate you from the love of God only you can separate yourself by unbelief. Gods word says you can control your thoughts by taking captive every evil thought to the obedience of Christ. So you decide if you will Succumb to the darts of the devil or hold up your shield of faith to extinguish them. No matter what goes down you decide by faith if you will fear or believe Gods word that says “you have not been given a spirit of fear leading to bondage again. Perfect love casts out all fear so if you fear then maybe you should examine where you stand with God. Fear involves punishment and there is no punishment for a born again child of the living God. Yes He is living not dead like other gods and He will return to gather His elect from the four corners of the earth, believe it!

This fall starting in September through December will be the worst time of all in recent memories so be prepared for the worst but keep the faith and brace yourself for what’s coming. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and don’t lean on your own understanding and pray as Jesus said “ pray that you may escape what’s coming upon the earth and stand before the Son of God forgiven and redeemed….

The End is not Yet

Many people are wondering if this coronavirus plague or covid-19 pandemic is the end of the world or at least the beginning of the end according to the Bible and all the prophesies written about the end of the age.

Scores of both media and biblical reports are all over the board. Some frighten with fear that the whole world is gonna die and still others complain that it’s a lockdown of society’s all over the world. Still others claim it’s a false flag although the virus is real, to cover up all the criminal activity and arrest warrants coming from thousands of sealed indictments in the U.S.

Others say the death tolls are highly exaggerated and the real death tolls are half or even less. Doctors and hospitals have gone public releasing videos on various platforms that they are being pressured to list every death as Covid 19. Amazingly flu, heart attacks and numerous other normal deaths that usually occur have suspiciously bottomed out and are rarely showing up on causes of death.

Just like someone said “never let a crisis go to waste” seems to be the call as political rivals hammer out this and that and he said she said and governors fight the mayors and mayors fight the government and thousands take to the streets to protest the lockdown all over the world. Of course the MSM doesn’t cover this but only a blip and those who would suggest certain things (always called conspiracy theories by the radicals) are taken down or deleted off media sights.

Now as for the end of the age it’s pretty clear there are many things that must transpire before King Jesus returns in the clouds with all His Holy ones to deal out judgment on the wicked and take the righteous home. Revelation states this earth will be burned up ( no one wants to live on a blood soaked planet for eternity) and even the heavens will be rolled up like a scroll. There is coming a new heaven and a new earth to spend eternity with the Ancient of days and Jesus.

How do I know this? Easy, just read Daniel and Revelation and thrown in some first and second Thessalonians, the 15th chapter of 1st Corinthians and sprinkle in 2nd Timothy chapter 3 and the small book of Jude, and finally Matthew the 24th chapter where King Jesus tells a story of the end of time as we know it today. And speaking of Matthew 24 when Jesus tells of all the horrible things coming to the earth He says “BUT THE END IS NOT YET” just the birth pangs. Great tribulation Has already happened to many Christians, just ask the relatives of those martyred in countries around the world. We are in what the Bible calls “the beginning of sorrows” as very perilous times are on the way and the man of sin (antichrist) is about to set up his demonic kingdom using a new world order to control the masses and no one will be able to buy or sell anything without the mark of the beast. AI technology will be the power to control every transaction on the face of the earth. Social scores already being tested in China will eventually come to America and around the world.

Since we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness in high places the time to get serious about serving Jesus everyday and learning the word of God to fight the spiritual enemies with sincere prayer is paramount.

Now if you fear death you really shouldn’t because there is no real death for the redeemed. If you fear then your not perfected in love because fear involves punishment and there is no heavenly punishment for the believers and those who have truly been born again.

There is a heaven to gain and and a hell to shun so make sure you know in your heart you’ve been born again. Don’t rely on any denomination or church or any man for your salvation. You must seek God for yourself with all your heart and you will find Him. Jesus said just as He was ascending in the clouds to sit at the right hand of the father “He who believes and is baptized shall be saved, but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned”(Mark 16: 16) and again in Matthew 28: 18-20 “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth” “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them all that I have commanded you: and lo I am with you even to the end of the age. “ visit kendogsinger.com for more…

First and foremost read Psalms 91 and believe it. No plague will come near your tent(house)

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

2I will say to the LORD, “You are my refuge and my fortress,

my God, in whom I trust.”

3Surely He will deliver you

from the snare of the fowler,

and from the deadly plague.

4He will cover you with His feathers;

under His wings you will find refuge;

His faithfulness is a shield and rampart.

5You will not fear the terror of the night,

nor the arrow that flies by day,

6nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,

nor the calamity that destroys at noon.

7Though a thousand may fall at your side,

and ten thousand at your right hand,

no harm will come near you.

8You will only see it with your eyes

and witness the punishment of the wicked.

9Because you have made the LORD your dwelling—

my refuge, the Most High—

10no evil will befall you,

no plague will approach your tent.

11For He will command His angels concerning you

to guard you in all your ways.

12They will lift you up in their hands,

so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13You will tread on the lion and cobra;

you will trample the young lion and serpent.

14“Because he loves Me, I will deliver him;

because he knows My name, I will protect him.

15When he calls out to Me,

I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble.

I will deliver him and honor him.

16With long life I will satisfy him

and show him My salvation.”

This is for all the redeemed, the believers in Jesus Christ living holy lives. Not for the sinners or unbelievers, Are you following Jesus? If not repent and and call on Jesus to save you and forgive you in this sinful world..

All who are in the tombs will hear His voice

So many misunderstand passages concerning the resurrection at the end of the age. Let’s see what Jesus the Christ said in The gospel of John in chapter 6. Plain as the nose on your face He spells it out.

“Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. 26“For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have life in Himself; 27and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man. 28“Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, 29and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.”

ALL WILL HEAR HIS VOICE BOTH THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE WICKED! The righteous will have a resurrection of life become immortal and live for eternity. The wicked will have a resurrection of death and burn in the lake of fire for eternity. Everyone Is resurrected in the same time frame.

Jesus also said “ You search the scriptures because YOU THINK THAT IN THEM YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE and these scriptures testify about Me and YOU ARE UNWILLING TO COME TO ME SO THAT YOU MAY HAVE LIFE”

See what He is saying? Reading and studying the scriptures is not eternal life, YOU MUST COME TO HIM to have eternal life and when you do you become born again, your spirit is born again! Jesus doesn’t receive glory from men He gets glory from the Father. We pray and sing and worship him and praise Him because of who He is and what He has done for us, not to glorify Him, only the Father can do that. We love and bless the Lord with all that is within us for He alone is Lord and our King.

Now realize this statement about your salvation that Jesus spoke: “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. Strike up the band, let the Choir sing and musicians play

And let all the nations come to the mercy and grace only Jesus can provide. WE PASS OUT OF DEATH INTO LIFE! Have you believed ? Then after your heart and mind has repented (turned around) then go get baptized like Jesus said to do, in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit and do it quickly. We are all baptized into one body by one Spirit, the Spirit of the living God. Now after your born again when you read the Bible it comes alive and the Holy Spirit will teach you as you read. The Bible has to be spiritually discerned and that cannot happen with a carnal mind, it can only take place after the Spirit indwells within you…

There are three main reasons why people go to church religiously: Guilt, Habit or Hunger. With guilt people know they have messed up and feel unworthy. They go instinctively to meet the One who can forgive them and change them, but instead of finding a connection and a real personal relationship with God most of the time they’re only presented with ritual and rules in the modern or traditional way. The power and presence of God is not in the services.

With Habit, finding or seeking God may not even be a goal because they are so entrenched in the religious system of the world or their denomination that the result is only going through the motions of a walk with the Lord because there is no power in their lives to fight against the enemy. They look and act just like the people in the world; the unsaved throughout the week then put on their Christian badge on Sunday so everyone can see. The presence of God is nowhere in their lives nor do they care to even enter in to His presence. They are happy just the way things are and the desire to really know God is not there.

Hunger: they want to know more about God and go to church to learn, but instead of finding His presence, they’re often presented with traditions, habits, rules, and dogmas and other nonsense that has nothing to do with finding the presence of God. Why? Because most churches that don’t preach and teach the fullness of the gospel totally and in the power. They might as well call themselves the Country Club.

Don’t misunderstand me, I’m not saying don’t go to church but don’t go to a dead church where they don’t preach the fullness of Jesus Christ and there is no presence of God by His Holy Spirit in worship and teachings.

Many are now having home bible study with worship and prayer and fellowship right in the homes where Gods Holy Spirit can freely move and teach without denominational doctrine. There is only one true doctrine and that’s the Apostles doctrine as written in the Holy Bible. Isn’t it strange the Bible says “no man needs to teach you? “And as for you, the anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But just as His true and genuine anointing teaches you about all things, so remain in Him as you have been taught.”(1 Jn 2:27) Read and study the word and the Holy Spirit will teach you. Now if you don’t have the anointing of the Holy Spirit you must seek it through prayer and faith in Jesus Christ otherwise how can the anointing teach you? The anointing is the filling or fullness of the Holy Spirit.

The true word for church is “Ecclesia” which simply means a gathering in a group of like minded people not just going to a building to practice a religion. God does not wait around for a week waiting for you to show up so you can have church! He does not live in a building or temple made with hands, He lives in our hearts and spirit by His Holy Spirit! The kingdom of God is within you and not of this world.

Church is not and was never supposed to be a substitute for a everyday direct relationship between you and God. 99% of all your battles in life are outside the church building in real life and you cannot run to a building every time there is a problem, no no you run to God immediately in prayer and converse with Him and read the word. We must all practice walking in the light daily, seeking His will for our lives and pray the Lord’s Prayer when we rise up in the mornings without fail and then talk with Him throughout the day as you would to a friend. When you blow it and sin and you will, repent quickly and don’t run away from God instead run to Him as He is merciful and forgives as soon as you come to Him and repent. We all need to repent and forgive daily and walk in His light and follow His word. Now you know perilous times have begun and horrible things are on the horizon, but God is with us and Jesus will never forsake you, ever…..Lift up you family, friends, city and nation in prayer and don’t let you love grow cold because lawlessness abounds, instead take everything to God in prayer…

My Brush with Death (in Vietnam)

It was a beautiful Sunday morning in northern Vietnam and I had just finished eating a sea ration of WWII canned turkey for breakfast when suddenly off in the distance I heard the dreadful sounds of thump, thump, thump and I knew we were about to get rained down on with artillery being fired from the north Vietnamese army. I was with Marine company 3/3 Lima way north in the Quang Tre province north of Dong Ha very close to the DMZ and things were popping day and night.

There were so many 500 pound bomb crater holes from our B-52’s I was sure we must actually be in the DMZ or we had crossed over into North Vietnam. The carpet bombing covered the area as far as the eye could see. We were just one Marine company fighting against a full regimen of highly skilled north Vietnamese soldiers. These were their best.

I was relaxed as nothing was going on at the moment when the artillery started raining down. I had my helmet off and grabbed it quickly and ran towards a bomb crater and as I was actually in the air diving boom! a large piece of shrapnel pierced my helmet and cut a path on the back of my head literally from ear to ear which later would result in 124 stitches to close the gaping wound. I fell into the crater stunned with lost hearing as the ringing was so loud I could hear nothing else. It felt like someone had taken a baseball bat and Swung it with all their might and hit me in the back of the head. As soon as I could think I began praying because I thought this was it for sure and I would die.

Somehow I mustered enough strength to call out I’m hit, I’m hit and lucky for me a Coreman (medic) heard me and crawled his way into the crater and began wrapping my head to stop the river of blood pouring out from my head. He stuck me with morphine and the pain started to subside. Several others were also wounded so they called in the helicopters to try to land long enough to get us outta there.

They put me on a stretcher and began to take me to the LZ (landing zone) and every few steps they would put me down and hover across my body when more shells screamed down. Nothing in this world like Marines carrying for their wounded risking their own lives to get me to safety. Once again shrapnel was flying through the air and I was hit again in my left upper thigh cutting a huge gaping hole. I remember so vividly choppers hovering and circling above waiting for the right moment to come down and pick me and a couple of others up. Finally they swooped down not touching the ground and my Marine buddies literally threw me up into the chopper and it immediately pulled up into the sky. It felt like I was blasting off to the moon the G-Force was so strong. They flew me all the way down to DaNang and there performed surgery on my head. The wound on my hip was left open. They laid me on a slab like you would see in a mortuary and there were many other soldiers there. Some were calling out to their mothers, some were so angry they were cursing against God but most were praying to God.

Someone began shaving my head with a dry razor which hurt like hell until I told them I could feel that on the front part of my skull so they said sorry and then used water and soap and continued to shave my head. I not sure how long I was on that table but when I woke up I was in a billet type hospital and holding my hand was a beautiful Vietnamese Nun dressed in all whites smiling at me. I thought she was an angel at first but actually she was my angel as she had been praying for me and sat by my side. She began to peel an orange and fed me little by little just smiling, I never saw her again but I’ll never forget her.

Four days later I was flown to Japan and four days after that I was flown back to the states via Alaska to Bethesda Maryland hospital. There I recouped and to my surprise I saw another machine gunner who said our entire company got overrun after I left. Sadly his whole buttocks has been blown off and there was literally no meat or flesh on his backside. After seeing all the wounded and suffering of fellow Marines and other service men I considered myself very blessed and lucky especially when I heard of my former marine classmate Butch Johnson has lost his life. Years later I paid my respects to him at a visit to the Vietnam memorial. Why I made it back and others didn’t I’ll never understand but I know everything is in Gods plan that we don’t understand while we live in this earthly body.

So on this Veterans Day weekend I salute all my fellow Veterans and carry the memories of their service with honor. May God have mercy on our Armed Forces around the world and bless their families…..

Every person born is guaranteed eternal life (but where?) Every single person is born into this world as a sinner. Every single precious baby girl or boy are born in sin, because they sinned? No because their mother and father are sinners. ” There is none righteous, no not one” (Romans 3:10) read it for yourself.

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me. (Psalm 51:5) Again read it for yourself. It’s not long before the sweetest children begin to rebel and sin against their parents. The main first word they learn after “Mama and Papa” is NO. Why? For their own safety. Still they rebel and many get hurt and some die tragically because they decided to rebel against their parents or grandparents.

Why? Because they are born in sin and every human heart is born wicked. Here’s the verse: (Jeremiah 17:9) “… the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked : who can know it?” Yes your heart and my heart are is desperately wicked unless you keep it in check and walk with God daily. Even Christians do wicked things on occasion and must repent and return to God.

Only one person was ever born was sinless and never sinned, the Lord Jesus Christ. Gods Son became capable of sinning after He was born of a woman ( and yes his Mother Mary was a sinner because she was born into sin just like every human being) but Jesus even though severely tempted by Satan never sinned ever! Jesus then submitted to the Father in Heaven and laid down His life and shed His blood for the remission of sins for every person who by faith believes in Him and confesses Him as Lord and follows His command to be baptized in water.

One of the smartest Jewish leaders of his day came to Jesus at night because He didn’t want to be ridiculed by the Pharisees. He asked Jesus about everlasting life and Jesus told him this very very important statement: “Verily, verily I say to you no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again” (John 3:3) Now Jesus went on to explain by the Spirit every person must be born again , read it for yourself.

So every person who expects to be saved now here on earth and be rewarded at death of their body to spend eternity in Heaven with the Father and Jesus and all the Saints must absolutely positively be born again of the Spirit of God. And if your born again you know it in your heart and you live your life following Jesus and the Bible.

Being saved is not repeating some words someone told you to say, nor is it attending some special church someone told you to attend, nor is it following rules and regulations laid down by someone, nor is it giving to the poor or doing great works, nor is it getting baptized. What it is believing in you deepest soul and heart that Jesus Christ is the Only begotten Son of God and only He can save your soul and believe He died and rose again and is coming back. It must be such a conviction that you truly repent of your sins and make a very conscious decision you will follow Him and remain faithful until you die. When you do then and only then do you become born again of the Spirit, and then you can get baptized to fulfill the promise. “We are all born into the body of Christ by One Spirit whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free, we are all made to drink of one Spirit.” ( 1st Corinthians 12:13) Read it for yourself.

I played around with Christianity on and off in my life but one day I said to God ” I can’t do this I’m not strong enough” and that’s when God really began to move strongly in my life, the more I admitted I was weak He became stronger and the more I let go of this world and stayed surrendered, the more Gods Spirit took hold of my life. It is a process to let go of your life and give it to Him. Above all I know it is by grace through faith that I am saved, not a cheap grace being preached in many places today, but a Godly saving grace for souls crying out to God to be saved and forgiven. Don’t tell me your saved if you live like hell and live just like the world, your just deceiving yourself and you probably won’t make it. Today and everyday we must repent and ask forgiveness and begin each new day better than the last one and never give up, never and keep the faith….if you don’t you’ll still live for eternity but in the lake of fire…
