I Sure Would Like To Be Wrong

I have no feel-good message for you today.
I can only counsel us to pick up our Bibles, read them, obey the Author thereof, and share Him with everyone we can; we have no other individual hope.

The America we loved has expired.
There is no way back and because of human hatred, there is no way forward UNLESS there is national repentance and if I were you I’d not hold my breath waiting.
Repentance has not been a National practiced for longer than I can remember.
There are no honorable days ahead for America as a Nation. She has lost her way and her place.

As I said, I sure would like to be wrong but presently I don’t believe I am.

Anyone able to disprove the foregoing, please, please do! 

Individually, JESUS still saves, for now.

Romans 10:  (NKJV) (I don’t think the Father will mind if we add Americans in parenthesis right after the name Israel.)
1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. 
For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 
For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. 
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” 
12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 
13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” source

My desire for you all is that you Seek the Prince of Peace and find rest for your souls.

Heavenly Food

Ephesians 2

Read with me verses 1 – 9. The following is the New King James Version but at the link provided at the word source below, you have many translations at your disposal, if your own favorite is not close at hand.

Ephesians 2 New King James Version (NKJV)
1 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,

in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,
among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest anyone should boast. source

Now, these 9 verses are so full of heavenly food I cannot dish it all up in this post, not even what I am seeing at this sitting which for sure is only scratching the surface.
First, I love that in verse one we are assured that GOD has made us ALIVE! We were DEAD in trespasses and sins but not anymore! That is all of us in covenant with JESUS. Tragically, all others are still at verse 2. And verse 2 describes people walking according to this world – it’s not a healthy walk. There’s a lot more to be said on that but not at the moment. 

Prince. That prince is satan. He’s the one ruling that stuff we snatch out of the air and act on it. Really. He is a prince and I say that in the most unbecoming way.  He has some clout, like it or not, enough that we must not take him lightly. But hey, he’s not KING and he’s not LORD! Aren’t you glad? Me too!
He is a spirit being. He operates in the supernatural and he operates in the sons and daughters of disobedience, who we used to be BEFORE the HOLY SPIRIT made us ALIVE.
What do sons and daughters of disobedience do?
They fulfil the desires of the flesh AND of the mind.  (Whatsoever a man thinks, that is who he is. Where is that Text found? Proverbs 23:7). This is why when GOD saved us He gave us the Mind of Christ.  So, if disobedient sons and daughters fulfil the desires of the flesh AND the mind? What do we do?

Verse 4 assures us that HE is rich in mercy, not piddling. HE does not run out of mercy when we mess up, which we do.  He has great love for us.  When we forget or disbelieve this one little verse, we get into so much grief, hurt and pain.

Again, He talks about bringing us to LIFE. HE says we are (legally) sitting in heaven with JESUS since HE made us alive. I say legally because, just look around and you know for sure we are not physically there today. But we will be! We have a binding covenant with GOD in JESUS.

And the verses come to this. GRACE. No amount of good deeds, no amount of turning over new leaves, repeatedly. No amount of nothing we can do will make us ALIVE. Only HE raises us from the DEAD. It’s HIS GIFT.

Have you received HIS GIFT?

Do you hear HIM offering this Gift to YOU today?

Are you accepting or rejecting?

Stacked

The 2020 Presidential Election.
I posted the following to my Just Because blog last evening. I’m bringing it here today.

It just occurred to me that Biden and Harris did not campaign because they knew they did not have to.
They knew the election had been bought for them from day one.

They knew the deck had been stacked. They knew the ballots were inflated.
So he could rest assured in his basement and venture out only for appearance’s sake. It was in the bag! He could take it for granted.

To the contrary, President Trump took nothing for granted. He campaigned and folks came by the thousands. He labored tirelessly. The Election was not bought for him. There’s a reason for that.

And it may be that the devil wins this round. I don’t know. We may have lost America. I don’t know.
BUT GOD will provide for HIS OWN.
There’s no better time than now to get ready. To repent and believe The GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. HE is the ONLY Truth we have.

Romans 5:17  (TLV) 17 For if by the one man’s transgression, death reigned through the one, how much more shall those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the One, Messiah Yeshua. source

 

At this day

Abba, this hurts so much and what hurts more is it is so totally unnecessary.
We are here, at this moment, the day after the Election not knowing who or what next, but knowing that millions of people have voted (either with eyes wide open or closed and deceived) for the slaughter, murder, and mutilation of children to legally continue in America. I can see You taking into account, personally and individually, how this was done. You know their names and You know their dwelling places. And I know You love them still and You desire for them to repent. Holy Spirit, please help them repent before it is too late for them to be made whole.

How You have been so gracious to us since 1973 is a mystery; and yet here we are at this day. 

I don’t know what You do next but I am here asking You to yet save us.
I pray that we, Your Sons and Daughters made so by the Blood of Yeshua, will weep and wail over our own sins and the sins of people around us.
I pray for conviction to fall upon us so heavily that we are broken beneath it in order for us to arise and go forth in power and humility because we have repented in sackcloth and ashes.
I pray for mercy for myself, ABBA, that I will know and experience with You real repentance and surrender to You as my LORD and SAVIOR. Please wash me clean and fill me with Yourself so that I will forever come out from this world; still to be in it as You will, but never a part of it.  I ask You to walk with us through this day and every day following that You give us.  I am so sorry for the murder, the corruption, the apathy, and the spiritual blindness and deceit that has filled this world. I am so sorry for my many contributions and I pray to make amends in JESUS name.

Don’t Go There

Hell.

I am uncommonly reminded of it this morning.
I am scared for people.
People are going to hell.
Did you know that?
How often do you think about that?
Who wants to think about that? I don’t. But I am.
Billions of people are on their way to hell. (Matthew 7:13)
Billions have already made their way there.
The majority of people who die, do not go to Heaven.
Most go to hell.
You do know this, don’t you?

I feel somewhat like Noah I think and not due to the rain.
As I type this piece we are expecting much rain. There is a hurricane in the Gulf headed quickly this way.  What the hurricane will do is not certain.
But hell is certain. It is certain that every person who dies without a covenant relationship with YESHUA, The Messiah, The Christ will go to hell. Period. Forever.

How much do we care?

Hebrews 9:27  (AMP) 27 And just as it is appointed and destined for all men to die once and after this [comes certain] judgment,  source

Romans 6:23 (TLV) 23 For sin’s payment is death, but God’s gracious gift is eternal life in Messiah Yeshua our Lord. source

Romans 10:9  (NKJV) that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. source

Matthew 11:28  (AMP) 28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation]. source

If GOD is still speaking to you, say YES to HIM today.
I’d like to help if I may, email or comment.
