WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN ?

Jesus kids

Mathew 19:14
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to ME, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

The death of Children has been going on for thousands of years. Children have died because of disease, abortion, tsunami, tornado, earthquake and war.

The number of children who lost their life to any of the later; represents a loss of life throughout time that is incalculable, because their number is greater than the sands of the seashore.

God said that He Created YOU before the World was made in Eternity Past. You were Born in the Mind of GOD, long before you came out of the womb.

God has promised a reunion in Heaven for every child of a parent who has come to the Cross-with Childlike Faith and accepted Jesus, the Son of God, as their Savior and Lord.

I believe that every little Child who dies before they are able to understand and respond to the gospel goes immediately to be with God in heaven.

If children have not reached the maturity by which they can make this decision, they have not broken their relationship with God. Their names are in God’s “book of life”.

King David said of his deceased newborn son, “I shall go to him, but he will not return to me” (2 Sam. 12:23). David believed that his child was with the Lord, and that he would join him one day in heaven (Ps. 23:6). I would offer the same assurance to every BELIEVER who suffers the death of a child. Your child belonged to his or her Father (GOD) and is now with Him in Heaven; waiting to be Reunited with You.

Life is about ETERNAL LIFE, not the life we live here on earth. So which is better; to die as a child and go to heaven or to live out your life before a Holy God and be condemned to Hell for Eternity because you never considered the FACT that you are a Sinner in Need of a Savior?

A Childs actions will not be judged by GOD….But every thought, every deed, every action, every motive of your pride filled heart will be judged by GOD; when you stand ALONE before HIM the split second after you die.

We cry over our Children that died here on earth. Yet, the Children who died will shed tears in HEAVEN over you, because you never took the time to read the Very Words of GOD Himself to you in His Scriptures about the Greatest Story Ever Told—-“The Life, Death, Resurrection, Ascension and 2nd COMING of the SON of GOD; JESUS the CHRIST.

Then you will die in your Sins and spend an Eternity in Hell and never be able to See Your Child in Heaven.

Biblical Bickering

The worlds events will not change no matter how much we comment to each other.

The unfolding events are Pre-Written HIS-STORY. You’ve read the Bible, you know the Past, Present and Future of Mankind. You know the story and its outcome. Stop continually complaining about the events in our world and the politics of our country. This entire world including our country currently belongs to Satan the god of this world. You will not change the events that are coming. The world is drinking from its Communion Cup that contains its Blood, and Sewage mixed with Evil.

As an individual believer in Christ you can only make a REAL Difference doing one thing. SHARE the TRUE GOSPEL of JESUS with everyone you Love and have relationships with ! ! !

The World and our Universe as we know it is going to implode very soon. As Believers, I am positive that NO ONE wants to leave those they Love behind.

Those you Love WILL REMEMBER YOU FOREVER in HELL and wonder WHY you never told them the Truth OVER and OVER and OVER again about JESUS and HIS CROSS and WHY they need to be SAVED. They will spend Eternity Reviewing their life events, but never again be able to change the decisions they made. They will be Alone, no one will hear their cries in the darkness and flames that surround them.

You are Blessed, because as JESUS wipes away your tears, those left behind will
become the FORGOTTEN. They will have Eternal Death as you gain Eternal Life.

So FOCUS on what your SAVIOR, your LORD and KING has called You Continually to do; while you have breath in your body. Nothing is more important to you or to those you will be leaving behind.

BE A WITNESS FOR CHRISTTo Everyone YOU LOVE and to Those JESUS brings to you as you continue to be HIS VOICE and HIS LIGHT in the DARKNESS that Surrounds You.

Easter Thoughts

Easter Thoughts: 1 of 5
Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord.

In Matthew 23, Jesus spoke these words, “you will not see me again Jerusalem, until you say, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.”

Jesus waits to hear those words from His people Israel so He can come back to Jerusalem. It will happen because God said it would.
In HIS timing the True Remnant of Israel, only 1/3rd of the Nation will recognize, Him whom they have pierced. They will call upon Him together, in a time of great sorrow…. and The Messiah, The Christ, The Son of God will answer them and SAVE them.

But, Jesus also waits to hear those same words “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord” from your lips as well. Because in the truest sense the Lords resting place is not Jerusalem, it is within your heart that He wishes to reside. He will bring with Him, Healing, Restoration, Grace, and Mercy for your Heart, Mind and Soul.

If you just listen and be still you can hear God say to you…. “there will be healing in this house…in your house when I come in to live within you. Please open your heart to Me. I bring you peace for troubled times. You lived within me in eternity past and now I have come to live within you…and then together we will walk into eternity future and you will have the joy of my pleasure from age to age to age yet to come.”

Why would God shed HIS blood …so pure and undefiled for such a one as me? The answer is simple…. because you are His Chosen precious child.

The next clear, dark, starry night, when you look up to the heavens…remind yourself of the Psalmists question to God in Psalm 8:4…”What is man that You are mindful of him?”

God answers that for us in Psalm 103: 13-14…”Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.”

His compassion for you was poured out through His Sons blood on the Cross. Today, if you do not know Him you are one of the Walking Dead. Your future is to die twice not once. Open your mind and examine the Truth of the Word of God. Ask Him to make the Truth clear to you. Claim His Promise in Proverbs 8:17…”I love those who love Me; and those who diligently seek Me will find Me.”

Believe that HE is and believe in what He says.

The words in the Bible of His prophesied coming have all been fulfilled. Therefore the prophecies of His 2nd coming will all be fulfilled as well. The words of the Bible are the Promises of God…. and God does not lie!

Jesus will come again soon because of:
1. Gods Promise to Himself.
2. Gods Promise to destroy satan.
3. Gods Promise to His creation.
4. Gods Promise to save a believing Remnant both Jew and Gentile.
5. Gods Promises to the Nation of Israel.
6. Gods Promises to You.

Every day that you live is a day of Mercy and Gods Grace to you…but even for God there is a time when His patience towards you will end. He will stop waiting for you. On that day He will honor your decision to live forever without HIM.

Faith is Trust based on Evidence…WE Choose to Believe

Its pitch black outside but soon their will be rays of light and the sun will shine and once again ONLY because of the promises of God, another day will begin.

It’s interesting how you can light one candle in the darkness and the darkness flees from the light, such is the power of light. Jesus claimed to be the truth, the light of the world. The world has seen a great light, but it seems that since His coming 2,000 years ago His light has diminished and the darkness is growing.

The more familiar you are with the Greatest Story Ever Told, the more you understand the times we live in …that they are called the End – times by Jesus.

What has changed in our world that now it is the darkness that grows and the light recedes and the minds of people grow dim?

The Lord has asked us to witness and there is an urgency to do so because “Soon the night will come” and the light and the Truth will not be found.

This darkness that is all around is not physical but Spiritual. We are experiencing the Dawn of the darkness of Sin.

Not physical darkness you can see, but darkness of the soul and mind causing us to see life through a mirror dimly. Just like God has said, we are seeing everything that is wrong becoming right and what is right becoming wrong.

Darkness fills our time and we wait for the day when time is no more and the Dawn of Eternity breaks…so you and I watch the sky and wait for the coming King.

We wait…because we believe that the Bible is the Word of GOD to us. The evidence presented through History, Archeology, Science and most of all Prophecy is overwhelming regarding Jesus, His life, death and resurrection.

For the JOY set before HIM, Endured the Cross…Hebrews 12:2

The Prophet Isaiah foretold death’s destruction in an ancient prophecy: “God will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord (Jesus) will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:7-8).

We live this life on earth; we cling to it with all our might. We think things can never be better than this. But God promises us that it can get better, far better than this…and it will.

Listen to what the Apostle John said in Revelation 21:1, 3-5. “Then I saw a new Heaven and a new Earth…And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes.

There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”

Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

These are the words of King Jesus. Count on them. Take them to the bank. Live every day in the light of Christ. Make every choice knowing you stand in the light of Christ’s promises to you.

We were all made for one person and one place. Jesus is the person. Heaven is the place.

If you know Jesus, I’ll be with you in that resurrected world with the Lord we love and with friends we cherish. We will embark together on the ultimate Journey of Joy forever, in a spectacular new universe awaiting our exploration and dominion.

Jesus will be the center of all things, and joy will be the air we breathe. And yes, right when we think “it doesn’t get any better than this…it will.”

Have you made GODS HONOR ROLL?

Through the years I have spoken to many believers in Christ about their God Stories; how they came to know the Lord. More often than not they had accepted the Risen Lord early in life.

They cannot remember a time when they did not know Him. For them the words of Christ…”let the little children come unto me” became reality as they ran to His open arms and were embraced by the Living God as children. They were born again through a simple child like faith into the family of God.

Others came to know Him as teenagers or during their early college years. These were times when the influence of Godly men and women made a difference in their lives. When being part of a group was important and growing in grace and wisdom was enhanced by nurturing mentors.

They were blessed because people took the time to invest their lives into them and disciple them. The soil of a young heart and the thought process of a young person are much more open to the Gospel.

As we grow older we become jaded Adults. Sin has had many years to grow deep roots within our hearts. We have become accustomed to sin. Our hearts are calloused, our conscience has been seared, our reasoning is flawed and we no longer know how to blush.
As adults we do not come to know Him through a simple child like faith. We are not interested in taking the time to seek Him, to learn of Him or to be discipled by those who offer to invest their time into us.

God has a special program to reach adults. It is called the storms of life. They come and swirl around us for a very long time…until they break us. No longer can we look inside for answers. Our eyes look up and we cry out to the heavens for mercy and beg for hope. We innately know someone or something greater than us is out there and so we reach up to the heavens.

God calls out to mankind daily and says…Why have you not returned to me? Believe in ME and I will give you refuge from the storms and hope for your future!

And so the relentless waves of famine, hunger, drought, natural disasters, pestilence, crop disease, physical disease turn into never ending insurmountable waves of sorrow. For those that don’t know Him life at best is bitter / sweet.

Have you ever noticed the design of Gods Cross, how its beams represent two linear lines that intersect each other. The vertical beam is planted deep into the earth that He created. His Cross is rooted into the dirt, the same dirt that He made mankind out of.
Through the roots of His Cross the earth drank deeply of His Blood as it poured forth into the parched ground. In the days of Moses, God had come down to lead His people as a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. This pillar was so large that it could be seen by the entire nation of Israel for miles in each direction of its encampment.

But this time, it was more personal. God came down in the form of a man and so the vertical Cross beam rooted in the earth reached upwards to heaven; connecting heaven to earth. For 33 years God lived and walked among us. He came seeking those with a child like faith. He came seeking those who needed mentoring and discipleship.

God came seeking the lost and the broken hearted that live without hope; to personally walk with each of them in the cool of the day and offer each a cup of cool living water.

The top of the beam reaches out to the same heavens that He created by the words coming forth from His mouth. God said to creation “Let there be”, and out of nothing came everything. But when He made us, He said “Let US make man in our image”.

The top of the beam of the Cross reaches up to the US; to His Father and the Holy Spirit. This Comforter gave each person new life by taking up residence within the hearts of those who believe in the Son of God.

And so the vertical beam connected Heaven to Earth, but the horizontal beam was more personal.

The Cross beam reaches around the entire globe. It was not the nails that held HIS arms to the Cross Beam; it was HIS great Love for you! Because HE Came Personally just for YOU! His arms enfold each of us, and comfort each of us that accept the hand of God that reaches down from His Cross to draw us up to Himself.

These two linear lines form a coordinate locked into time. They form an ancient prophetic symbol upon which heaven would meet earth and God would meet man. The story of the God / Man is contained in Gods Autobiography.

I am sure you have taken the time to read the stories of men. Their stories can touch our hearts and emotions. But their stories are fiction, not real…not truth.

Their stories remind us of a truth deep within us. Echo’s of a time before time, when truth was planted deep within our hearts by God. And so we rally behind the stories in the novels when love wins the day and justice is served. Because inside each of us is this need for love fulfilled and the desire for justice.

This truth buried deep within us is like a dream that is so real. Yet when we wake up the images recede back into the mists of our minds. It is like trying to grasp water or watching a wisp of smoke as it disappears into thin air.

Why is the Truth that difficult to grasp and understand?

Have you taken the time this year to begin reading the True Story of a visible King who brought an invisible Kingdom with Him? THE KING who came to save you not from yourself but from Himself. This King whose sacrificial love is greater than anything we can imagine is also Holy and demands that His justice be satisfied as well.

This King has a Book of Life. It is like the honor roll list that you tried to earn a place on during your elementary, high school and college years. This honor roll was based on your achievements. You were honored by your peers and the titles you received built up your pride and your passion in your accomplishments. This honor roll prepared you for this life here on earth.

But the Book of Life is Gods honor roll and you and I do not qualify to get on it. There is nothing we can achieve to make it. For we are not honorable, only God is to be honored.

In truth our accomplishments will all fall short, our dreams will never be realized, our possessions will become the possessions of others.

Why… it’s simple to understand…we will die. We will die either young or old, either today or tomorrow …but we will die.

Every honor given us by men will die with us and the life we lived, our legacy will recede back into the dream we lived on earth. Like an echo from the distant past, barely visible, difficult to hear…then gone forever….remembered by no one—— except God.

This life is but a dream. Your real life will begin when you die. Don’t spend this short time you have seeking the praises of men. They can do nothing for you.

Instead seek to know the Living God who waits for you to let Him into your heart. Then and only then will your name be written into Gods Honor Roll…His Book of Life.

A wise man once made the statement …How sad it is to be alone in the world. There is much truth in that statement because most of us will do everything we can to fill our lives with people, whether family or friends or strangers.
We fear being alone.

We need crowds of people because we truly are not comfortable with ourselves. I can admit that many times in my life I have felt most alone while surrounded by many people…but at least there were people around me.

What is sadder yet is the fact that without God we will be alone forever…without anyone around us. Gods Autobiography is the only book worth spending your time with. Your true story is there, your past is there, your present is there and your future is there.

If you know Jesus as Lord, then realize He is coming back as your King to hear from your lips how you served Him. He wants to know your account of the precious time He gave you and whether you made a difference for Him.

This life is not about you but about your King.

May every breath of life you take into your lungs go forth from your mouth as words of life to those around you. Tell people about your King and His Kingdom. Tell them why they need to be saved and from what.

Tell them about HIS Cross.
