Just Say YES

This is offered not as criticism but as a longing of my being to see and hear people with platforms and influence when speaking an invitation of Come to JESUS to consider making a change.

This: To acknowledge that just repeating a prayer will not save anyone.

Please begin by posing some questions.

Questions like: Is there a tugging in your soul?
Are you sensing something within you that you don’t fully understand but you know you are not right with GOD?
Are you convinced that you are a hell-deserving sinner?
Are you convinced that you need a Savior?
And do you see today that JESUS CHRIST is the only Savior?
The Only One who can take your guilt, your sin, and your shame away?
The Only One who can make you right with GOD?
Moreover that HE actually wants to save YOU?

If you can answer all these in the affirmative, you are ready to surrender to the LORDSHIP of JESUS.
You are ready to be saved.
Just Say YES.
HE WILL DO THE SAVING.
And when He does NEVER stop saying Thank You to Him.

Romans 3:10

10 As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one;

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 10:9

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.

Romans 10:13

13 The sea gave up the dead in it; and Death and Sh’ol gave up the dead in them; and they were judged, each according to what he had done.
14 Then Death and Sh’ol were hurled into the lake of fire. This is the second death — the lake of fire.
15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Book of Life was hurled into the lake of fire.

Revelation 21:8

But as for the cowardly, the untrustworthy, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those involved with the occult and with drugs, idol-worshippers, and all liars — their destiny is the lake burning with fire and sulfur, the second death.”

If you are uncertain of your eternal destiny and you are concerned about that – that is GOOD NEWS! 

Please hear me.
Please read these foregoing Scripture passages (or perhaps others) until you are ready to say YES to JESUS

And when you say YES with an honest and thankful heart — welcome to The Family of GOD!!

Come to Breakfast

I thought I’d remind you of something you likely already know but perhaps have not thought about in a while. 

The TEXT I’m offering here for you to read is John 21:1-14.

If you read the account or if you recall, this happening took place after Yeshua’s resurrection. And it is the third time He appeared to the Disciples after that most wonderful Sunday morning in all of history. 

Peter decided to go fishing and some of the guys decided to accompany him. They fished all night and caught nothing. Then morning came and Someone was on the beach. 
Verse 7 says John recognized the Someone on the Beach. He said, ” It is the LORD!” 
I think he recognized Him because when they cast the net at His command, they got a multitude of fish. 
That was not the first time He had given them those instructions. (Luke 5:4-7)

And now to the reminder, I want to give you for consideration today. 
When they got to the shore breakfast was cooking.
Bread and Fish. 

 Then, as soon as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. source 

THE LORD HIMSELF was cooking breakfast for them. 

The BREAD of LIFE baked bread for them! 
Now just ponder on that. The resurrected GODMAN cooked breakfast for them. Not supernaturally but naturally. Campfire and all. 
But that’s not all. 

12 Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who are You?”—knowing that it was the Lord. 
13 Jesus then came and took the bread and gave it to them, and likewise the fish. source

GOD Almighty cooked breakfast and served them!

What might He want to serve to YOU today? 
The question is, will you dine with Him

Dead or Alive?

Admittedly, it’s my opinion, an opinion born of observation. 

The Church (by that I mean people as a whole professing to be Christians) has forgotten we have a real enemy.
The church at large, for a way long time now, conducts business as though Satan is dead or at the most just a little cartoon character with neither power nor gumption to pay us any mind. 
How about this?

1 Peter 5:8  (NKJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. source

Or this one?

John 10:10  (NKJV) 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. source

And this one?

Job 2:7  (NKJV) So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord, and struck Job with painful boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head. source

Does this sound like someone we should just ignore, pretend he does not exist? 

Let’s look at another one. 

Mark 4:15  (NKJV) 15 And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. source

Shall we ignore this? If we do, he is well at work just as described in Mark 4:15.

Am I suggesting we live in mortal fear of him? Hiding in our homes refusing to venture out, afraid to open our mouths? 
Nope. Just cultivate a healthy respect for a deadly enemy and a passion to abide in an intimate fellowship with our Father Who can right today send him cowering in mortal fear and eventually to the Lake of Fire forever. 

Here. Read this from Revelation 20 and have a delightful day! 

Revelation 20:1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 
and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. source

Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 
and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 
They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 
10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. source

How’s that for encouragement?

Perhaps There is Time

First I am set to remind you, those of you who might not know me well enough, I am neither a Scholar nor a Theologian, barely a Layperson. Today’s post is a WHAT IF post. A What if for you to consider prayerfully. A What If post that I hope encourages you to dig for yourself. That’s what I am doing. I dare say many may not like this post. I surely don’t. Let’s begin.

What if learned Scholars and well-studied Theologians have missed the message of Scripture? 
What if what we have believed is not actually borne-out in Scripture? 
What if The Rapture of the Church is not any day now?
What if The Rapture of the Church is not until Revelation 11?
I’m not saying it is, I’m saying What if?
I’m still mulling it over; still asking Adonai to talk to me about it.

What would it mean if this What If is what will be? 
Perhaps you have read my suggestion that 2020 is a trailer to the Tribulation. A means for us to gain more clarity on how the coming days will play. 
If The Rapture is not until after the Last Trumpet, that means we (unless we die prior) will see The Mark of the Beast. UNLESS, of course, the Last Hour is still many years away. 

I am wondering how faithful, how strong would I be? How strong would you be?
Many Churches closed their doors because the Government said close.
The Government said, isolate, put on a mask, shut down your businesses, stay home. 
We did.
We did that for a virus that has at its least rate of survival for aged persons with one or more comorbidities a 94.5% survival rate.  (And don’t forget the Vaccine. It’s already mandatory for some.) 
I am confident what we have done so far is not equal to the Mark of the Beast, but it should tell us something about who we are, shouldn’t it?
How would we tell the Government no I will not let you put that chip in my hand? No, I will not bow to the god of this world even if you starve my children and me to death. The survival rate then is not 94.5%. And surely not 99.997%.
For those caught refusing, 100% die. 

What if? What if many, many of us have been wrong? 
Should we not today start preparing? 
How do we even prepare for such an unthinkable event? 
That’s a good question. 

We have believed, many of us, that this passage is not talking about us because we have believed we won’t be here. What if we are? 
I’m not learned enough to argue either way today. I thought I was. Now I am not so sure. Shouldn’t I be? Shouldn’t you be?  

Revelation 12:11  (AMP) 11 And they overcame and conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, for they did not love their life and renounce their faith even when faced with death. source

I do know this: it is not The LORD’s will for us to be afraid of this.
It is not The LORD’s will that we be sad, borrow trouble, have downcast faces and worried spirits.
It is His Will for us to overcome TODAY by the Word of our Testimony that The Blood of JESUS is enough to cleanse and save a wretch like any of us. 

One more question. How much Scripture do we have sealed in our minds that we could call on it, lean on it and be embolden with it even if we didn’t have a cellphone to look it up or a Bible to hold in our hands to read?
I confess I am lacking BUT perhaps we have a few years to study and show ourselves approved
