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?

We are closer to home today than when we first believed: “To the baby boomer generation”

“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…..

You Better Believe Jesus Arose

You Better Believe Jesus Arose

The old song says “Up from the Grave He Arose, With a Mighty Triumph Orr His Foes.” Brother and Sister, you better believe this with all your heart. Unless you’re lying to yourself, you know full well you’re a sinner and have done many things in your body in your life that deserves death. Mankind is without excuse says Romans 1:20, so I guess that doesn’t let you atheist or agnostics off the hook either. Just because you don’t believe, doesn’t make it not true. I suggest you get a grip and real soon because the end of the age is fast approaching and you might be smelling that singe as you standing too close to the fire if you get my meaning and I know you do.

For all of you that need a simple course in Jesus 101, I suggest you pay attention. You wouldn’t be even looking here unless you have some concerns about your soul (other than my faithful readers from all over the world who read my blogs) Ok, so here’s the deal in black and white, pulling no punches dude. The truth is unless you believe in your heart (not your intellectual, philosophical, but what about this and what about that always making excuses brain) that Jesus is the one and only Son of God, that he actually did come to earth in the form of man and live and then shed His blood for your sins, and then God really, really, did raise Him from the dead, (believing with your whole heart mind you) your goose is just as good as cooked and I don’t mean for supper. You better spend some of that money you usually spend for other things and buy a Bible that you can understand and actually look up some passages like Romans 10:9,10 and see what being forgiven and saved really means. Or since you could be more of the lazy type or should I say nerd type or not internet app challenged, Google “Blue Letter Bible” and download it to your puter, iphone, ipad, or android and spend a little time on your soul, instead of watching the next Netflix to keep yourself from being bored. In case you’re wondering, BLB is free.

Now, having said all that, let’s go on a little further. I understand you may have some college or perhaps even degrees for some of the wonderful humanistic self serving shoot the bull college or university and in your mind you think you just all that. The real problem is instead of using that wonderful brain God gave you for studying His word to at least get some sort of knowledge of His nature, you’ve wasted a lot of your time doing who knows what.  The bottom line is this and let this be burned in your memory and heart like a good tattoo, Jesus said this profound statement “the wind blows and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from, or where it is going; so is everyone who is born of Spirit, and you must be born again or you will not enter into the kingdom of God.”

Well, well, that leaves you with a decision of a lifetime. Since you’re so well educated and smart, you know, yep you know, if you’re born of the Spirit of God. You can pretend and play all the worlds games all you want and fool your friends and co-workers and even your roommates or your family, but you can’t fool God and you know what? You know if you’re fooling yourself! Maybe you even sneak into a church once in a while on Easter Sunday but in today’s lingo “it is what it is” or “at the end of the day” you know if you’re still a broken down peace of humanity or if you’re full of love and peace and know where you will spend eternity. I bet the Holy Spirit is convicting some of you reading this right now, you better hope so if you’re not right with God. For someone, this is your last, final and only shot at receiving the Glorious Grace God provided through His Son Jesus, so don’t take it too lightly.

What is salvation and eternal life? Knowing Jesus as Lord and God who sent Him. Having a relationship with Jesus and God the Father. Jesus will tell millions on that judgment day “depart from me, I never knew you” God loves you so much and sent Jesus to pay the price for your sins in full. To be born again and get to know Jesus and God the Father is simple as there is salvation in no one else: for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12) Lots of people who call themselves Christians who are not born again and will be shocked at death. Church attendance or being baptized won’t save anyone. Being good (ha-ha like you really could) won’t earn your way to heaven. Nothing but the blood of Jesus can wash your sins away. It does not matter the degree of sins you have committed, or how many, what matters is if you will sincerely from your heart say “Father in heaven, I am a sinner, forgive me and wash me clean with the blood of Jesus Christ, I believe Jesus is Lord and you raised Him from the dead and say it out loud to God” And repent (turn away) from the bad parts of your lifestyle that you have been living.  Do it now while there is still time, forget about what people will think who cares? If you prayed that prayer you’re born again. You see you don’t just escape hell but you gain eternal life. That’s like forever and ever. Everyone knows if they are born again of the Spirit of God. For it’s by Grace that you’re saved through Faith and God gave them both to you, the grace and the faith. Now after your born again you should be baptized in water as Jesus commanded. He doesn’t care if it’s at a church or your backyard swimming pool or a river or lake, just do it. Remember you’re getting baptized because you’re saved Not to be saved. That can only happen from your heart in faith.

If you don’t know much about the bible, I have written over 40 blogs that cover many subjects and I’m sure many will witness to your spirit and help you, so read them. But most importantly, talk to God daily, read the bible and learn of Jesus. He says come learn of me for I am meek and lowly in heart and you will find rest unto your soul. Jesus loves you so much, never forget that, ever, and so do I.

You better believe Jesus rose from the dead, you soul depends on it………Happy Easter….
