DAY OF SALVATION

 

The burden within my soul to share the Gospel is the greatest burden I have on my heart. This burden is the one that I will carry all the way with me to when I stand before JESUS. As He reviews each time He opened a door for me to witness that I did not go through I will shed uncontrollable tears.

We will be judged not only by what we did for JESUS, but also by what we did not do for JESUS.

Tears that His hands will wipe away, so that final burden will be released. I will enter His Kingdom leaving behind the memories of all those people I loved that never knew JESUS as their LORD and SAVIOR.

But for now, I am here, and I am constantly reminded that Today is the Day of Salvation. I cannot do anything for those I love that have died without knowing their Savior.

But today is mine….

And today is yours…

And today belongs to those you love…

My prayer for us is that we use the day well…for HIM…

As a child of 7… I would impatiently ask my earthly Father during the 6 hour car ride to Mackinaw City in Michigan… “Are we there yet, are we there yet….”

The same is now true of me as an impatient Believer, as I see pre-written history unfold before my eyes exactly as predicted. I watch the road signs fly by faster and faster during my journey home to Heaven. Each sign announces His Second and Final coming with anticipation to those that know HIM.

The last Words…Gods Words…spoken of in this monumental epic story which is History…which is really HIS – STORY, the story of JESUS… from the Book of Genesis (the Book of Beginnings) through to the last Book of Revelation (the Book of New Beginnings) are all true; from the first Words “In the beginning” to the last Word “AMEN”.

Revelation 22:20

“He (Jesus) who testifies to these things (the end times revelation of the sequences of prophetic events) says…Surely (there is no doubt) I AM coming quickly”. AMEN (let it be so)

Even so (just as you described), Come (Quickly), Lord (My Sovereign KING) Jesus (HIS name means SALVATION).

Have you been SAVED?

OUR 2ND COMING MESSIAH

Centuries before Christ was born His birth and career, His sufferings and glory, were all described in detail in the Old Testament Prophecies.

The information served as a fingerprint that would fit the hand of only one man in history.
Who He was to be……….Where He was to be born.
What He would do at His 1st coming.
When He was to come……….How He was to come.
How He would die……….When He would die…….When He Rose from the dead.

Christ is the only person ever born into this world whose ancestry, birth time, forerunner, birthplace, birth manner, infancy, manhood, teaching character, career, preaching, reception, rejection, death, burial, resurrection and ascension were all prewritten in the most marvelous manner centuries before He was born.

HIS Messianic Credentials Have Been Established:
A unique birth Isaiah 7:14 A unique life Psalm 40:7-10, Isa 50:5
A unique death Isaiah 53: 1-3, 6-7 A unique burial Isaiah 53:9
A unique resurrection Psalm 16:10, Isa 53:10

Does the Old Testament proclaim the specific time of the coming of the Messiah? According to Tradition the Jewish People are looking for the FIRST coming of their Messiah not the Second Coming. These traditions come from rabbinic interpretation of the Old Testament. Could it be that the Rabbis have missed something? There are four points to think about in identifying the timing of the Messiahs coming:

1.The Messiah’s appearance was locked into a fixed time.
2.That fixed time was while the Second Temple was standing before the Romans burned it down in 70 A.D. (Daniel 9:26).
3.The Messiah had to come from a specific lineage (the line of King David). This lineage was only verifiable through the Temple records which were destroyed in 70 A.D.
4.The Messiah had to die a violent death. (Isaiah 53, Psalm 22 and Daniel 9:26).

The Old Testament is clear in its statement by God through prophecy that the Messiah already came and is coming back again the 2nd time Very Soon.          

The Handwriting on the Wall

GOD used His Finger to write a message to mankind in Stone 2 times in History.
GOD’s LAST MESSAGE to mankind will be written in FIRE.

The first was when Moses received the 10 Commandments. Man has ignored the instructions that God wrote since that very day. And continues to Mock GOD.

The second time God wrote a Message with His Finger in Stone was to King Belshazzar: Daniel 5:25 “This is the writing that was inscribed: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, and UPHARSIN. 26 This is the interpretation of the words: As for mene—God has numbered your kingdom’s days and brought it to an end. 27 As for tekel—you are weighed on the balances and found to be lacking. 28 As for Upharsin—your kingdom is divided and given over to the Medes and Persians….. And in that very night Belshazzar, the Babylonian king, was killed.

There is another Stone Wall is in existence today. The Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, The City that belongs to GOD Alone. The False Messiah will come bringing a 7 year Peace between Israel and the Arab Nations. Israel will rebuild the Temple and begin animal sacrifices. 3.5 years into this Peace, the False Messiah will go into the Temple and proclaim himself to be god.

Then GOD will send a FINAL message to the False Messiah / Anti-Christ and mankind. He will use FIRE to destroy both the False Messiah and the Nations of the Earth. The message is already written on the Wailing Wall to the False Messiah and mankind. Both are blind, without Spiritual Eyes and cannot read the message from GOD to them. “Mene… God has numbered your kingdom’s days and brought it to an End. Tekel…Both of You (Anti-Christ and Mankind) are weighted on the balances and found to be lacking.”

If you do not know JESUS as your SAVIOR, then you still have a heart made of STONE. When you were born God wrote with HIS Finger on the STONE WALL of your Heart the following message. Mene,…God has numbered your days and brought them to an End. Tekel…You are weighted on the balances and found to be lacking…filled with SIN.

Only JESUS can SAVE You and give you a New BORN AGAIN Heart of FLESH and then Open the Door to HIS HEAVEN and let you in. It’s time for you to read the documented HIS-Story of the SON of GOD in the New Testament so you can make an informed decision before it’s too late and the decision is made for you.

SATAN’S PUPPET’S

The Old One’s day began early with the dawn. Clothed in animal skins he walked out from among his people; out from the inner recesses of his cave dwelling towards the sunlight. He paused at the cave mouth and turned back to his family as they knelt to the ground.


Then on their behalf he moved out of the shadows into the light to greet the gods they served who waited for him at the High Places. Look behind him; there attached to his foot is the shadow of the darkness from the cave he came out of. It has its own life and clings to his body as he moves forward into the sunlight.

The Old One was the priest of his family. It was his responsibility to pray at the dawning of each day to the visible gods of the Sun, Moon, Stars, Rain, and Fire. He stands in the sunlight, at the top of the high place, with arms raised to the sky, chanting and praising the creation, answering the shrill cry of an eagle overhead

Then he prayed to the unknown god of the Wind; it came as it pleased and went without his knowledge. He could feel its touch, but the god remained invisible.

Then the Old One began calling to his family to come out of the cave to worship the gods with him. Mankind thinks he has come a long way since those days. Do we still worship the Earth and its elements? Not the way the Old One did, but yes we do. Are we still god hunters? Yes, but now we do it more intelligently. Out of the depths of the darkness of our depraved minds we have created multiple major and minor religious systems with differing world views.
Each religion with a different voice led by multiple Old Ones raising their chaotic voices to the heavens calling forth multiple servants (demons) of the god (satan) of this world.

And so it is that mankind continues daily to strive towards the light, with the darkness never leaving him for it clings to his every step filling his soul with multiple voices living in the shadows, darkening his mind and reasoning abilities.

When you go to your church are you hearing a message based on God’s Word or the words of a man? Are you gaining discernment / understanding of what is coming to our planet very soon?

Are you sure you are SAVED? Do you understand the topics of Hell and Heaven? Is your pastor teaching out of the Old Testament regarding the role of Israel and the nations surrounding it before the Lord Comes the 2nd time. Is your pastor teaching you the Book of Revelation? Do you know how to recognize SATAN’S PUPPET… the False Messiah / Anti-Christ.

If not then your pastor is an OLD ONE, who teaches you to recognize and embrace the False Messiah…….the Anti-Christ. And you will find that JESUS does NOT Attend Your Church and that YOU are NOT READY to Stand Before Your LORD !

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

 

The marines represent the pride of the military of the United States of America. They are always the first to go into combat and the last to leave.

I saw a billboard sign on the road to work. It had a picture of a beautiful saber held by a Marine. It is something to behold. The Marine saber represents the might of the United States of America.

The words over this saber on the billboard represent the creed of every American. “Earned, Never Given”. This is the way of mankind.

JESUS uses the same 3 words but in a different sequence.
“Given, NEVER Earned” This is the way of our Triune God.

I say the following all the time to anyone that has ears to hear…

I am not a Jew, or a Catholic, or an Episcopalian or a Lutheran. I am not a Methodist, or a Presbyterian or a Baptist. I am not a Charismatic nor am I a Pentecostal. For that matter I am not Yellow, Brown, Red, Black or White.
I am none of the above.

What I am, is a Child of I AM and a Follower of HIS SON JESUS.

Listen for the TRUMPET and Stop worrying about everything…JESUS is coming to take you to your new home very soon!

Live in HIS SHALOM; because JESUS HOLDS THE KEYS !

FROM DUST TO GLORY

To mankind GOD has given His image. He has made us a little higher than the angels. However at this time in our imperfect state before Him, God refers to us as “but dust”. Let’s go back in time for a moment to when God made Adam the first man. God reached down into the earth and gathered a handful of dust from which He would create the first man. God is omniscient meaning He knows the future. He knew that there would be a day coming when He would have to sacrifice His only begotten Son on a Cross to bring salvation to the race of man.

So when God gathered the dust to form the first man, it was His tears that wet the dust to turn it into clay as God molded Adam into His Image. These were the first of the many tears of God because He knew what the cost was going to be to His beloved Son on the Cross. He knew that He would have to turn away from the cries of His Son on the Cross-when Jesus roared “My God, My God…Why have you forsaken me?”

Yet God made Adam anyway from the dust mixed with His Tears. Then as Adam awoke a new creation…the first man…Adam stood and stretched his arms out as all of us do when we awake.

And the light that reflected from God upon the first man created the shadow of the CROSS behind the man. God’s eyes looked upon the dust that Adam was made of …and tears filled the eyes of God again.

The Shadow of Mans Cross would be there every morning in this land filled with both light and shadows till the end of mankind’s days. If only every person made in the image of God could come to know JESUS during their journey in life so the weight and burden of the beam could be lifted and carried by their Savior.

But every person cannot come to Christ, because God has chosen and elected the few and not the many. And God did that to bring Glory to HIS Name. But what of free will you say…God said He gave you free will, and He did. He gave you, in your fallen state the ability to choose your sins. But you do not have the ability to choose God as your savior. That choice resides alone with God through the Power of the HOLY SPIRIT.

The question you face is whether or not you are one of the Chosen. The Bible speaks always of a Remnant (the few) whom God chose from eternity past from among the nations of the earth to ultimately be a love gift to His Son.

Are you one of the Chosen? Do you have Royal blood running through your veins? It’s been said that running throughout time is a Crimson Thread representing the Bloodline of the Messiah. Throughout history this bloodline and its attempted corruption has been the main focus of the angel of light who has become the King of Darkness, the god of this world, satan.

Satan is a believer in Jesus. So much so that he has spent all his energy throughout time to stop the plan of Salvation as described in the Bible, the Word of God. And so the battlefield continues to be filled with blood and the war rages on both in the realm of humans and the realm of angels. When God formed us from the dust using HIS tears to make the clay, it did not complete us.

Each of us was born alive physically but our Spirit within us was born dead. We each need to find a personal relationship with JESUS. Only in this way can we gain the assurance of our Salvation and become Born Again by having our Heart Circumcised and our Spirit Quickened and brought to life within us.

The only place this journey to Salvation can begin is within the pages of the book that God Himself wrote for you to read about Himself. His Words, the Words of God will grow within your heart and mind and kindle the flame within your Spirit.

This flame ultimately will consume you so that every thought you have about every circumstance in your life, and the world around you will be measured against the Word of God.

Then you will gain a new perspective about life here. You will realize you don’t belong here at all. Heaven will become precious to you like never before. And most of all you will become more like Christ every day and your heart will become burdened for the lost. Your compassion will give you new eyes to see through every day as you continue to meet those I call the real walking dead…because they have no spiritual life.

You need wisdom and discernment to rely on the words of men who write books about the word of God. But if you read God’s Word out of His Holy Bible you will receive wisdom and discernment from the author of everything, including an understanding of the future.

The REAL CROSS of CHRIST !

 

The Church for too long now has been preaching Christ from the Cross forward. I am sure you know the importance of teaching and learning the whole council of God.

By that I mean, the God I serve shows us His Love and Mercy…but He has another side, one of Wrath and Judgment. So to know God is to understand both sides of who He is. The same applies to His Scriptures. When you are taught only Christ from the Cross forward you are missing the Foundation upon which JESUS stands.

You miss the richness, the beauty, the mystery and the sign posts given by God Himself through Prophecy so each one of us, not just the Jews, could recognize the Messiah, the Redeemer, Gods Christ, when He showed up on the World Stage.

The New Testament reveals the mystery of who Christ is. The Old Testament conceals the mystery; yet to those who seek God, that mystery is revealed through Prophecy by the Holy Spirit.

The beauty of our Faith is that we do not believe in Myths, Fairy Tales and Legends. Our Faith is grounded in History, Archeology, Science and most of all verifiable Prophecy. 2 Peter 1:21 says “We have a more sure word of Prophecy….. it came not at any time by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”

One of the greatest Sermons given by Jesus was Luke 24:13 on the Emmaus road. The two disciples were depressed that the Messiah was killed. Jesus said to them…  “O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter His glory? And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.” Beware, Someone Wicked This Way Comes….the False Messiah / Anti-Christ. If you Lack Biblical Discernment you will Follow him to down into the pit , forever.

JOY

Listen, can you hear the wind. Its Jesus gently whispering to each of us, to our heart of hearts…always calling …waiting to be heard.

Soon Spring will be here and the trees will have leaves.
And yet again the leaves will be moved by the wind and they will lift up Holy Hands as they pray to the Lord for our Salvation and for US to WAKE UP and understand the times we live in and LOOK UP because JESUS IS COMING .

His Joy is that He finally will come to fulfill His promise to save you from yourself.

My Joy is that He chose to come for me. He comes for all those who take the time to seek the Truth with “all their heart, mind and strength.”

If You Choose to seek Him you will find Him and He will give you faith and strength for this journey called life.

There is no me only Him. I have no will but to do His will only.

I trust not in myself but in His love and care for me according to His Promises in Scripture.

I receive all things from His hand and am glad and rejoice in His mercies that are new every day I live here.

Christ is all around us. If you but look… you will find
Crosses Everywhere.

KNOW GOD…….and KNOW HIS FOREVER, ETERNAL PEACE !!!

All GODS Children said AMEN.

Isaiah…”To Us A SON Is Given

Romans 10: 14-15 says it all.

How can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him?
And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?
And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent?

That is what the Scriptures mean when they say…
“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring Good News.”

Are you keeping the Good News to yourself…
the miracle of your changed heart?

God has filled my heart with dreams of passion, compassion and a desire to walk in the Truth… what about you?

May your Faith give you Courage to do great things, to be bold and touch someone’s life for Eternity.

I serve the God of Ancient Promises that are still coming true today.

The Prophet Isaiah said…”to us a SON is given.”
See for yourself.
In the manger… He is there.

The Apostle Luke said…”this same Jesus will come again in the clouds.”
See for yourself.
In the tomb… He is gone.

I lift up my voice to the Heavens with Praise
To the all wise God of Israel and the Church
…the Almighty, the Ancient of Days…
…the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

To the Father, the One who sent …
To the Son, the One who came…
And to the Holy Spirit, the one who stays…and now lives in me.

Amen and Amen,

Your ADVERSARY the Devil

Satan’s Beginning:
Ezekiel 28:12 “You had the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God. Every precious stone was your covering …from the day you were created….you were the anointed cherub who covers…you were on the Holy mountain of God; you walked in the midst of the stones of fire, you were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, until unrighteousness was found in you and you sinned. Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty and you corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor”.

Isaiah 14: 12 “How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations! You have said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly…I will ascend above the heights of the clouds…I will make myself like the MOST HIGH.

Satan’s Work:
2 Corinthians 4:4 “The god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God”

1 Peter 5:8 “Be on the alert, your adversary, the devil prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

Ephesians 6:12 “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.”

Satan’s End:
Isaiah 14:15 “You will be thrust down to Sheol, to the recesses of the pit. Those who see you will gaze at you, they will ponder over you saying, Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook the kingdoms, who made the world a wilderness and overthrew the cities”.

Ezekiel 28:18 “Therefore I have brought fire from the midst of you, it has consumed you and I have turned you to ashes on the earth, In the eyes of all who see you. All who know you among the peoples are appalled at you. You have become terrified, And you will be NO MORE.”

Every being God has made whether Angelic or human will remain immortal for eternity. Each will spend eternity in either Heaven or Hell….with the exception of Satan… his judgment is to be NO MORE.

Satan’s Effect on YOU:
2 Corinthians 11:14 “Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light”.

John 8:44 (Jesus said of Satan) “He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him, Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

2 Thessalonians 2:8-10 “Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders. And with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.

Mark 13:22 “For false Christ’s and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect- if that were possible.”

When God told Moses, he was going to die, Moses gathered Israel together one last time to speak to them for God. Moses reviewed the mighty works of God in their lives, then he prophesied two ways the Nation could go.

Both required a personal choice. Israel could choose life or Israel could choose death. Like Israel we too have the same choice. Israel only had the incomplete Word of God to make its decision on. We have the complete Word of God to make our decision.

Yet we mainly choose to hear the love, mercy and compassion of God preached. Rarely do we choose to hear of His other side. The side of Gods Holiness, and His Righteous Anger and that He is coming to Judge Sinners.

The Bible is clear when it says “do not fear the one who can slay the body, but fear the one who can cast soul and body into hell”. Jonathan Edwards once preached a sermon called “Sinners in the hands of an Angry God”…you and I do not want to be in the hands of an angry God.

We are living in the end-times, the last days as described in Bible prophecy. We have the Holy Spirit within us. YET, God speaks of the end times when He will give the world over to THE GREAT DECEPTION…this deception will be so great that if it were possible even the very Elect (you and I) would be taken in by its miracles, signs and wonders. These miracles, signs and wonders will point to the Anti-Christ who will be possessed by Satan. His miracles, signs and wonders will seem real to us because they appeal to our heart, our emotions, and our ability to rationalize everything in accordance with our desires.

The Lord also speaks of multitudes standing before Him in judgment, who will believe their works were good enough for them to get into heaven. They will say… “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name and in Your name perform many miracles? And then I (Jesus) will declare to them, I never knew you; DEPART from ME, you who practice lawlessness!”
