“Jesus paid it all. All to Him I owe. Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.” I love that hymn. It is a true story.
Simple true story: sin caused and continues to cause a debt rift of holiness (He is holy and now we are not) between us and God. Jesus came to give His life to repair that rift. Death could not keep Him (because He is God) and He rose from the dead and is in heaven now interceding for our benefit. Jesus Paid it all for anyone who calls on His name, humbly asking to be saved. To anyone who humbly and truly asks, Jesus saves from an eternity separated from God (and therefore horrible) and they receive the gift of the Holy Spirit for strength, the amazing fruits of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control) development and character building. It is simple and very cool. And God has worked in my life over and over as proof of this truth. It is beautiful, God is gloriously beautiful!❤❤❤
Fear is the enemy’s tool, right up there with pride which initiates it. Fear of discovery that lies will collapse as they always do. Fear of death. Worse is fear of pain. Death comes once and there is an end to it. Fear continues as long as you allow it to rule with pride in your mind. Fear is pride’s muscle. People who sin fear consequences so lie more creating bigger sin creating more fear. It’s goal is destruction. Not just of life but eternity. Fear with pride keeps people from salvation more than anything else. What will happen if I tell the truth, which is what repentence upon salvation looks like. Truth will set you free but fear says it will not free you but humiliate you if people find out. You may lose loved ones or divorce if your spouse is told of pornography addictions or other adultery. Jobs may be lost if bosses find out about money laundering. Children may be alienated to find a parent who admits hatred or evil desires. Salvation is exposition and that is fought by pride and fear in so many people. Isn’t eternity in heaven and out of hell worth discomfort, even pain? And isn’t Almighty God able to work miracles of forgiveness otherwise? Food for thought…❤
Psalm 73:3. “For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 4. They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong. 5. They are free from common human burdens; they are not plagued by human ills. 6. Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence. 7. From their callous hearts comes iniquity ; their evil imaginations have no limits. 8. They scoff, and speak with malice; with arrogance they threaten oppression. 9. Their mouths lay claim to heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth. 10. Therefore their people turn to them and drink up waters in abundance. 11. They say, “How would God know? Does the Most High know anything?” 12. This is what the wicked are like— always free of care, they go on amassing wealth. 13. Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure and have washed my hands in innocence. 14. All day long I have been afflicted, and every morning brings new punishments. 15. If I had spoken out like that, I would have betrayed your children. 16. When I tried to understand all this, it troubled me deeply 17. till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny. 18. Surely you place them on slippery ground; you cast them down to ruin. 19. How suddenly are they destroyed, completely swept away by terrors! 25. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. 26. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. 27. Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you. 28. But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.”
People doing evil, even those with billions of dollars, will be rewarded or punished for their sins like all of us. You can’t buy your way to heaven or even out of hell. Don’t look at what others have and be envious of them. Their own glory they basked in will only last as long as their bodies unless they humble their hearts before God and are aaved by Jesus Christ just like everybody else. Wealth is a funny thing, stupid really. People count on it and it gets them things that are so so very temporary. I would rather have nothing and Jesus than anything this world has to offer. Rest peacefully in that joyful truth. ❤
The state of things is that of moving fast, keeping up, doing this and that, busyness, technology, expectations, societal norms and subsequent societal abnormal demands expected to be adhered to. I do not like the state of things. They feel wrong. They make my skin crawl. Darkness pervades. All before noon. So here I am a ball of misery? Nope. I am the light. I have what these people need. So do we all, all of us lights, those who are saved by Jesus Christ and know His truth, the only truth. We have the truth, the secret to being light in darkness and one day being out of here altogether and in heaven, away from dark forever. Imagine, one day soon we will not have darkness or evil anymore. It will be obliterated. So I can stand it a while longer to share my light. Maybe we can spread the light to more people so we have more company in heaven. Maybe we can share and spread it everywhere to everyone. That would be pretty cool. ❤
This is what we are told to do. The whole business of the Bible is summed up in this:
1. God made us and loves us.
2. Sin/Disobedience caused a rift between us/people and God.
3. God sent Jesus, His Son to be a perfect sacrifice to die for us to have one opportunity through accepting Jesus’ sacrifice for us and heal that rift.
4. Jesus didn’t stay dead because you cannot kill God and He raised from the dead.
5. We are told to accept Jesus as our Savior and be baptized acceptingndreccept nd spread the Good News where we are.
6. To do that, out of appreciation for His allowing us the choice to be saved or not and in a show of love to God by obeying Him, we are told the best way to do that is to arectively love God and everyone else in our path or lives.
7. Soon He is coming, after some bad stuff happens, and will snatched us up to heaven, those calling out to Jesus for salvation. Jesus is the only way to be saved.
And it is that simple. Every other religion wants you to earn salvation and God gives it freely to whoever humbly asks Him and just worships Him. Other religions demand, but God gives generously. Other religions have God’s who do nothing for their worshippers but God wants a relationship with His worshippers and interacts with them and answers their prayers. I am so very happy to be an worshipper of God and accept Jesus Christ as my Savior. Oh how I love Him and oh how He loves me and you!!❤❤❤
Our holy, perfect, beautiful, loving God lives. He always has been. He always will be. He certainly can handle everything we have before us to face. God certainly deserves our worship and praise. God definitely is the only One who deserves anything good. Marketing agencies selling things based on people’s horrible inclination to pride and selfishness and “You deserve this” and “You deserve that” garbage have served only themselves at the risk of all of us by feeding everyone’s dangerously prideful ego and creating an atmosphere of entitlement rather than service. They will be punished. God is the only One who deserves anything good. We do not. Let me be clear and speak that truth again. Only God deserves all good things. That He chooses to generously share them with us is further proof of why He deserves good.
God loves us so much, and that amazes me. We who let Him down over and over He cherishes and keeps pouring love and grace out to us to win us over. God is trying so hard to get our attention to the urgency of things, the valuable importance of knowing that you are actively choosing either Him or the damned (quite literally) enemy and not choosing a side is in fact choosing the enemy. There is an urgency to call everyone choose to be saved by Jesus by calling on the name of Jesus for eternal salvation. It is imperitive that you do this now. We don’t know how much time we have left on this planet but it is not long…. could be seconds, years, minutes, hours. God only knows, don’t believe false prophets who say otherwise. God is everything. It is all about Him.
God made us lovingly on purpose for Himself, to tend to His world, to serve and worship Him. And now we decide whether to be with Him or to be separated from Him in torment and anguish forever. It is our own choice, not His… He wants us all and arranged salvation for anyone who humbly asks and call on the name of Jesus to be saved. Decide and put your energy into that decision. Read the Bible more and pray more and fast more if you are already saved and help save someone else. Time is short. I am not in the least privy to how short but the Holy Spirit living in my heart says it is short and He speaks truth.
Please know that you are deciding to be on the side of good or evil. You are deciding your eternal fate actively. God is not deciding, YOU are. He does not want anyone to go to hell. Hell was made for the fallen angels/demons who rebelled against Him and have caused so much harm and destruction to what He made and loves. But He won’t force you to love Him, He loves you too much for that. Know that you are actively deciding to accept or reject the God who made you in love every minute of every day. It is YOUR decision. Every moment of the day you decide again. Do not decide to be away from God when this world comes to a screeching halt, and it will. The train will stop and you will get off in eternity and face judgment. God will decide who goes to heaven or hell based on YOUR decision to be saved by JESUS, the only name we are saved by. And there is no excuse that you are “not religious” or “didn’t know”. God gives ample opportunity and your choice is informed and purposeful. You ARE religious, you worship something. Just because you choose to worship yourself or some addiction or idol or other God of a demon’s making or another person rather than God is really you saying “I don’t want anyone telling me what to do. I want to do what I want to do.” Not wanting to be bothered is still deciding you and your comfort are more important than God and Jesus’ sacrifice of dying so you can be saved if you humbly ask Him. It is still YOUR eternal decision to follow God or His enemy, good or bad, right or wrong. And not choosing IS choosing wrong. You always are actively choosing so please choose wisely.
This is a lot of truth but I must speak it boldly and bluntly for time is short and many will be lost or left behind if they do not humbly pray to accept Jesus as their Savior. He so longs for us to. Do it today while you can. Be saved. Get in His lifeboat. Get an eternal reservation in a heavenly mansion. You will be eternally glad you did!!! He loves you so much! I do too.❤❤❤
I will never buy into the all religions get you to heaven, all are right and you just pick one and go. How is that possible? It isn’t the truth, you see. It is an imaginary invention, a lie for the masses to keep as many away from eternal life as possible. What makes me so sure? Two things: the Bible (proven truth) and the power of the Holy Spirit, mixed with the proof in nature that these things are true. The Bible is the truth. It has never been proven untrue and has withstood the test of time and tests of truth. What it says is true. It does not speak of an additional volume coming later and quite the contrary, it places a curse on those who add or take away even one word of it. That tells me it is complete in of itself. It is the entire story, the whole instructions we need to live, everything we need to know to be assured of salvation for all eternity. And it is all about Yeshua Ha-Mashiach/Jesus Christ (two translations of the same name). This is the book of Jesus Christ. He is the only way to be assured of salvation. He is God, one of the trinity, the one born as Man to sacrifice Himself out of His great love for us so we may have eternal life with Him. God, the Creator of everyone and everything we know of, is the only true all-powerful eternal, all-knowing, all-present love, full of grace and love and wanting everyone He made to be saved from their sin and ignorance. There is ample evidence in history and nature and especially in the Bible. And when saved, the Holy Spirit and His love and power and the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) grow in us and provide further proof. It is amazing to have n peace and assurance and unconditional love!!!❤❤❤
