Why your prayers don’t get answered..

Most people pray if only now and again or when disaster strikes, but do their prayers get answered? For those not in tune with God that answer is probably no. There is really a few simple reasons why this happens and it’s as plain as the nose on your face. First let’s take a quick look at what is actually recorded in the text of life; the word of God.

1st John 3:21 says this :”Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. This friends, is the first and foremost reason prayer results never come. First reason is “if our hearts does not condemn us” and this speaks volumes. Our hearts are condemned by KNOWN SIN in our lives. Why do people think God will overlook their know Unconfessed sin? Some never even stop to think “But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.” (Luke 12:2) Just look at what’s happening today, all the Revelation coming out about people’s private sex lives , not to mention all the corruption being exposed in governments around the world. We are just witnessing the tip of the iceberg with much more that will come out in the coming weeks and months. And how do they try and get your mind off of what’s happening? Simple just create a false flag; some sort of disaster or new narrative to change the subject or news cycle; thus creating a false flag. It’s the same with individuals; just divert attention away from the truth.

Secondly, “ if you heart condemns you, you have zero confidence when you pray” your just wasting your breath and your words just hit the ceiling and drop to the floor.

However; if you heart DOES NOT CONDEMN YOU, you have great confidence because you are clean and not hiding known sins because you have truly repented of those sins and they are forgiven and forgotten. And if that’s the case you have every right to EXPECT an answer from the Almighty Father in heaven! We have the faith to know that because we do things that are pleasing to God and keep His commandments with no purposeful sin in our lives, God will absolutely, positively answer our prayers in due time.

The only other way that doesn’t happen is if we ask for things with the wrong motives.”You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.” (James 4:3) For example: God I want a brand new car. Instead of Father please help me get a car so I can get to work and keep my job. Or God I need more money (and you thinking of all the ways you can spend it) instead of saying Father please give me great favor with my employer and supervisors so I can get a raise to help me pay my bills and give more to the poor and my church.

If you have no hidden sins and you know what hidden sins are; sneaking around and having an affair or watching porno, or stealing from your place of work, or causing dissensions by gossiping behind people’s back, or lying to cover up your weaknesses like DRUGS or alcoholism or homosexuality or any number of things that are too numerous to mention. You know if you have secret sins and you know exactly what they are and why they are being done. IF so, then cry out to God for His forgiveness and repent in sorrow and He will forgive you and restore you.

So the bottom line in getting your prays answered is this: have a clean heart that does not condemn you when you pray and your prayers will get answered in due time as you rest in assurances that God hears your prayers and loves you and will answer them. So stop doubting and stay strong and take courage, because God never fails and know He may test your faith during the process to see if you are faithful and mean business. “Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.” Don’t you think it’s about time you start believing and using your faith and see the answers come?

Did Jesus say ask me into your heart?

I’ve heard many Christians from several different denominations say on several occasions that no where in the Bible does it say we need to ask Jesus in our hearts, even going so far as to call this a heresy and false salvation to those who do it. Really? It appears they don’t know the Bible or what Jesus actually said in Revelation 3:20. Why? Because they don’t spend any time reading Revelation. They neither understand it or write off the the entire book as some sort of symbolism.

And what does Revelation 3:20 say? “ Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me”. What is the door? It can only be your heart. So if someone hears the gospel and opens the door of their heart to Jesus, then by His Holy Spirit He comes in through the doorway, which is your heart, to your spirit and you become born again by believing with your heart and confessing with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. For through Him by the Holy Spirit is grace and faith and the only way to have fellowship with the Father in heaven.

When you ask Jesus into your heart He comes in and dines with you meaning he takes up residence in your spirit and seals it for the day of redemption (Ephesians 1:13, 4:30 and II Corinthians 1:22) and through the Holy Spirit that He sends you He teaches you to observe all things He commands. If I were you I would open your heart and ask Jesus to come in and save you. You can’t clean yourself up, only Jesus can clean your house and clean you up as you surrender to Him all the areas of your heart.

When the people ask what must I do to be saved in Acts what was the response from Peter? Repent and be baptized and you will receive the GIFT of the Holy Spirit. So am I saying baptism alone saves you? No I’m not and neither does the verse; however when you read all the conversions in the book of Acts what did those who believed do right away? They got baptized in water and so should we do the same because Jesus commanded it. You’ll also notice that they all believed FIRST and Confessed Jesus and were pricked in their hearts when they heard the Gospel. That’s why Paul said in Romans 10:8-11 “

“ what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart,”that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved.

It is just as the Scripture says: “Everyone who believes in Him will not be put to shame.”For there is no difference between Jew and Greek: The same Lord is Lord of all, and is rich to all who call on Him, for “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

The gospel of salvation is fairly easy to understand if you hear with your heart and not some man made doctrine. Paul says the gospel is simple and it is the gospel of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. So you hear with your heart (not your mind only), you believe with your heart ( not just your mind), you obey from your heart, (not just agree intellectually)you confess Jesus is Lord from your heart, (not just words from the mind spoken), you obey Jesus commandment to be baptized ( not to join a church) and you ask Jesus into your heart which is by the Holy Spirit.

“For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.” (1st Corinthians 12:13)

15And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16“He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17“These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”(Mark 16:15-18)

Jesus wants us to ask Him into our heart. He wants us to ask Him to baptize us in the Holy Spirit. For our heart is the door and He is knocking. Will you open the door? Ask Him in right now…

Islam is death to those who practice it

Islam is Hate and Death to Muslims
Have you ever heard even one Muslim who believes in Islam speak of love for humanity? Do they speak of loving even their own family? All Muslims are not believers in Islam, they were born into Muslim countries and families, but have no idea what the Koran even teaches or says. Many hate their leaders and own government but keep it to themselves. The majority are programmed by the lying wolves and Devils preaching in their mosques, speaking the false lies of Islam. Teaching a ideology of death even to their own people. This ideology cannot even be classified as a religion. Its a ideology of total control of the masses by fear and lust and power. What kind of a god would ask you to murder? Murder even your own family? Murder yourself? What kind of a god would give you the permission to abuse and rape and rape again and lie and steal and call it ok because your promoting Islam? What kind of god would have you cut off the pleasure zones of female children and women with which they were born with to satisfy the sadistic demonic fearful insecurity of males. What religion would throw homosexuals from roof tops but yet have sex with young boys. Islam is the most hypocritical fake religion in the history of the world where men rape innocent young boys and girls while their god condones this practice? What so called religion would have women cover themselves completely in black garb afraid of other men looking at them? What kind of a god would have you kill Jews and Christians and all others who are non- Islamic? What kind of god would have you murder innocent people because you don’t believe in Islam? What kind of a god would allow old men to marry ten yr old girls and call it normal? What kind of god would hate the very humans he created and by force cause then to follow him even when it’s not by choice? What kind of parents would train their small children to hate and kill: the parents of Islam. Islam is a political system masquerading as a religion! It is hate and lust and pure evil and those are driven by the demons and Devils and satanism and occult and Satan himself. So what are the answers to the questions?
The answer is NO god would teach and condone the practices of Islam. The answer is Allah is NOT God. The One True God is Jehovah, the Creator, the “I Am” the lover of humanity that He created, full of holiness and love and mercy and grace and forgiveness, a God of love and peace and caring. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is the provider and healer and protector for all those who love Him. He sent His only Son in the form of human flesh to atone for our sin and wickedness and restore our relationship to Him. Yeshua, Jesus is the only way to the Father. You must follow Him. Jesus is the truth and the way and the life. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. Not only saved but loved forever and you will spend eternity in heaven with God. Mohammed is Allah’s messenger alright, his messenger of death and hate and lies, Allah is no God at all, but he is the devil in disguise, run from him, run from Islam, run from death. The true God loves you and all men and women and He makes no hard commandants to follow. ” Love the Lord God with all your heart and soul and mind and your neighbor as yourself and you fulfill his commandments because against these two things there is no laws. There is no reason for bloodshed again because Jesus shed His blood for you and me on the cross to cover and wash away all our sins. He died but arose again so we too will rise again in the resurrection. Follow Jesus, follow Jesus, follow Jesus and receive His great Love…He’s coming back soon!
We followers of Jesus must love all Muslims, defending our faith and if necessary defending our country and families, but loving all, even those who hate us because Jesus commands us to love. I hate what Islam does in the hearts of Muslims, but I don’t hate the Muslim people, Jesus died for their salvation too, we are not special, we are blessed to have been born in countries that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is preached. All a Muslim has to do is is say ” God show me Jesus” let me know the truth and Open my heart and God will do just that. ” in fact anyone can ask the same thing. ” Do not fear man who can kill the body and after that has nothing else he can do, but FEAR GOD WHO CAN CAST YOUR SOUL INTO HELL”

Church Bells are Ringing, Don’t You Hear Them?

Church Bells are Ringing, Don’t You Hear Them?

The wedding will take place soon, a wedding like no other that has ever occurred in history or will ever occur again. The Spirit and Bride say come, and you’re invited!
This wedding will will have myriads upon myriads of people in attendance, a number too large to count. The hosts will number in the thousands of ten thousands and will escort all the guest to the marriage supper of the Lamb. The most honored groom who has written on His robe and on His thigh “King of Kings and Lord of Lords ” will lead this great assembly of believers, called the Body and the marriage will take place.

Inscribed upon every individual who overcomes is written the name of the Father God. And each person will receive a white stone and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it. “Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” They will forever and ever be with the Lamb who was slain and now lives forevermore. The King of Kings who has been given all authority in heaven and on earth will reign forever and the love among His Bride and Him will never die or fade away.

Prepared for His Bride is glory unimagined and so astounding, the thoughts never even entered the hearts of man. A new heaven and a new earth and a new Jerusalem, for the former things are passed away and the current earth will be burned up and He will roll up the current universe and heavens like a scroll and it will be gone. New and pure and clean and untouched by sin will be the new heavens and earth. The Father and the Son will live among the Bride forever and there will be no night there because the Son will be the Light. There the Bride will live and move and dwell with God.

The church bells are ringing, won’t you come? The church bells are ringing to proclaim salvation to all men, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. The Gospel of the Kingdom has almost been proclaimed in all the earth to every tribe, every nation and every tongue, and when that is complete the end of the age will come. It is very near. That Gospel is this; God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. The Lamb was slain for us, for you and for me. His blood washes away our sins when we believe. He will confirm to you by His Holy Spirit who will then reside in you and seal you for the great day of redemption and you will be invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb. Jesus died and rose again and commands us all to be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and be raised to walk a new life.

Love covers a multitude of sins, and Jesus love for you will cover your sins as you repent of your sins and confess Jesus as Lord of your life. He will never leave you and be with you even until the end of the age. Have faith in Him and never let go. Your invitation to the marriage has your name on it and it’s straight from the heart of God. Will you come, will I see you? The Church bells are ringing…..Can’t You Hear Them?….

Are You Ready for The Coming King ?  

Are You Ready for the Coming King?

” Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and let the unrighteousness man his thoughts; and let him RETURN TO THE LORD, and He will have compassion on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly PARDON. For My thoughts are not your thoughts; neither are your ways My ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. ” (Isaiah 55:6-9)

Unfortunately, for millions, the Lord won’t be found as this planet winds down to the end of the age and Jesus Christ returns to rule and reign for a thousand years. Why not? Because they simply are not looking and seeking Him. The Lord is near ! “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision ! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”(Joel 3:14) The human race is born in sin and most seek their own pleasure instead of seeking God first. Worries of this life take center stage in most minds with little thought given to their own spiritual awakening, or soul searching or contact with the Creator of the universe and much less where they will spend eternity, for the soul of man never dies. Everyone will spend it somewhere; either in glorious peace and wonderment in heaven with the Father and His Son or in the deep recesses of hell with Satan and his angels in the lake of fire reserved for the wicked. There will be weeping and pain and gnashing of teeth and it will never end.

The love of money, power and pleasures drive humans to do the most despicable and barbaric acts that the majority of people can not even imagine in their wildest dreams. As the bible so rightly quotes; ” For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”(Ephesians 6:12) Struggles transliteration in the Greek is “Pale” which means “Wrestling” and is from the root word “Pallo” which means “to vibrate.” It’s the match of the ages. Notice it is not a war. The war has already been won by Jesus who made an open defeat of Satan when He arose from the dead for the whole universe to see. For us, it’s a struggle, a wrestling match to claim what is already ours by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony by which we overcome the bible says. Team Jesus is always the victors!

World headlines denote the tremendous evil circling the globe right now. And for anyone who has the slightest idea of all the foretold prophesies; you know all things are being fulfilled right before your eyes and the soon return of Jesus as King is just barely over the horizon and right around the corner. We are not talking decades now, we are literally talking within a very short few years if not sooner. Even only five short years ago; who would have ever guessed that the words of Jesus spoken in the gospels and the warnings of Revelation would appear right on the scene, right in front of our eyes in our lifetime? They will kill you and think they are offering their God a service. The Christian beheadings and murders and persecutions have begun all around the world.

Even the majority of non-believers have heard of the Antichrist and the battle of armageddon and heard of the coming wars. They have also heard of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. No one is without excuse, no one. ” 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)” For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who SUPPRESS THE TRUTH in unrighteousness, for God has made it EVIDENT WITHIN THEM.” (Romans 1:18-19) now that’s powerful ! Everyone knows deep inside and will have no excuses why they didn’t seek God, why they didn’t learn the truth, why they didn’t study the bible, why they didn’t pray and why they didn’t believe. And the ones who flatly refused to repent when they knew the truth, woe to them.

This period of grace is almost at the close. Soon every nation, tongue and tribe will have heard the gospel as a witness and then the end will come. Jesus said “As in the days of Noah” is what it will be like, immorality and violence will cover the earth and people will still be marrying and buying and selling goods. When they least expect it, Boom, the last trumpet will sound and Jesus will burst through the Eastern Sky to gather His elect from the four corners of the earth! Are you ready? Really ready? I would hate to be in your shoes if your not. There is no second chances. This life is all you have, the price for your sins has already been paid, repent today and turn from your wicked ways and call on the name of Jesus to forgive you and save you. Don’t be like the rest of the world who are so busy with the cares of life and making more money that all of this takes you totally unaware. God loves  you, will you love Him back???
