Come to Christ, Now!

come to christ now

Come to Christ, now! I pray that you do. He alone is God in the flesh, and He alone has the power to save your soul, to deliver you from the power of darkness, and to transform your heart to fulfill His good pleasure because He loves you.

You can die in your sins, or you can receive forgiveness of your sins by believing in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This Gospel of Christ is the result of God’s love and mercy for us.

You must repent of your sins and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ to be saved from eternal damnation in hell.

Please become a follower of Jesus Christ, right now. Don’t wait. Don’t put it off. Serve Christ, now.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is explained in the Bible:

15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 

2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.

3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 

4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 

5 and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. 

6 After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. 

 The New King James Version. (1982). (1 Co 15:1–6). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.

Here’s what you need to do, immediately:

Believe that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, died on the cross for your sins according to the Scriptures, believe that He was buried, believe that He rose again from the dead the third day according to the Scriptures, and believe that He was seen by over five hundred people at one time.  Jesus Christ is alive!

Believe the truth of the Gospel of Christ.  When you do, you will be saved from the wrath of God that is coming upon sinful humanity and the eternal judgment that is to follow, and you will receive the grace of God to be forgiven of all your sins, you will be filled with His Holy Spirit, and you will be granted the gift of eternal life.

God bless you.

 

I Rejoice in Christ Jesus

Hoo ray!-3.png

I rejoice in Christ Jesus because of what He alone has accomplished.

Jesus Christ purchased my redemption – my slavery to sin and Satan’s dominion over my life – through His death on the cross, His burial, and His resurrection.

Jesus Christ purchased me with His own blood and washed me from the filth and power of my sins, so I could become a loving, slave to God.

He justified me by His righteousness – justification means that God declares me righteous and gives me His own righteousness by faith in Jesus Christ.

So, I rejoice in Jesus Christ and put no confidence in my fleshly abilities, intelligence, skills, or works to save myself. I cannot save myself from my own sins or free myself from the power my sins had over me. However, by faith in Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection, I have received Christ into my heart and His power in my life. I now have His life in me, so my life has been transformed and set free from sin. I now possess new godly, desires given to me by the Holy Spirit, and His power to fulfill them. All this I have obtained by faith in Christ Jesus and not by my works or being a good person.

Being a good person does not set me free from sin or the eternal punishment which is sin’s result. I rejoice in Christ Jesus and do not put trust in my weak ability to be good. I rejoice in Christ Jesus and not in my own works in order to be saved. I rejoice in Christ Jesus because through faith in Him I have been given Salvation, Sanctification, and will be glorified, and none of these blessing were earned by my goodness.

I rejoice in Christ Jesus my Lord because He has have given me His power to live and become more and more like Him. I did not earn His power or earn the right to obtain His power. I received the power of His Holy Spirit by faith in His Gospel. I have power in my life, today, because Jesus Christ has given me His life by His grace not by my works.

I rejoice in Jesus Christ and not in my own self-righteousness or goodness or abilities. I have Christ-Centered Reliance that He will perform in me all that He promised to those who believe in His Gospel.

I rejoice in Jesus Christ because He has made me a new creation that is zealous for good works and empower by His Holy Spirit to do them by His grace.

I rejoice in Christ Jesus and have achieved nothing apart from His life in me.

I rejoice in Jesus Christ because by His work, I have been given His life because of His grace: “For by grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves it is is the gift of God. Not of works least any man should boast” – Ephesians 2:8-9.

The Glorious Gospel Will Prevail

The Glorious Gospel will prevail.

Don’t worry. Jesus Christ rules, and His Gospel will triumph over this world.

I believe the Word of God: Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” Revelation 11:15(NKJV)

Every nation, kingdom, government, family, tribe, and individual will be given over to the power and control of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He will rule over all.

“He shall reign forever and ever!” I rejoice in my Lord Jesus Christ.

“Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end…” Isaiah 9:7 (NKJV)

He will not be voted out of office.

He will not be scrutinized by the media.

He will not be ambushed, accused, impeached, or imposed.

“Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end…” I praise God for His truth, power, and love!

Jesus warned the Sanhedrin who asked if He was the Messiah of Israel, “I am. And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.” Mark 14:62(NKJV)

When the Lord Jesus Christ visibly returns to this earth, He will come sitting at the “right hand of power” – the very power of God, Himself, because He is God. He will come with the “clouds of heaven” – the glory clouds of God, Himself. All the world will stand in awe of the conquering King of Heaven – the King of the Jews – Jesus of Nazareth.

He alone is the King of kings and the LORD of lords; He is the “Great King above all gods” – Psalm 95:3.

My heart overflows with faith-filled optimism in the truth, reality, and power of the Word of God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Join me in fellowship with the Master! Praise His name with me. Yes!

Jesus Is Not the Slave of Allah and Mohammad

In the following video clip below, a young man is commanded to remove his cross and recite the Shahadah, children are taught to serve the false god Allah, and an Islamic evangelist weeps for a lie. I wish I could share the Gospel with that evangelist and all the men, women, and children in this video; I wish I could show them all the truth, love, and grace of Christ.

Here is the clip:

Jesus said, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it, but whosoever will lose his life for My sake the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged if he gain the whole world and lose himself or be cast away? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of Man be ashamed when He shall come in His own glory, and in the Father’s, and of the Holy Angels” – Luke 9:23-26.

Lord Jesus, we pray that we will never be ashamed of You. Help us to be bold in the face of the persecution that comes from seeking You alone. Help us to never seek to save our lives but to lose our lives for your sake. We humble ask You to be the Lord of our lives. Amen.

 

 

The Thorn and The Brier

“Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”

Isaiah 55:13

I have sown the thorn and the brier, yet my gracious Master and King has pulled these from the garden of my heart and planted the fir and myrtle in their place. My heart was a landscape of death, but now (by His grace) it is a garden of life – the planting of the Lord.

The replanting of the field of my heart is a generous and gracious gift afforded me through Christ. He can do the same for you, my friend – He can change your heart as well.

There is no one that Christ cannot redeem.

God’s grace is more than a theory; it is, indeed, a fact of heaven and proven again and again on this earth. Transformed lives are the reality of its power.

Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we can become new creations – old things have passed away; behold, all things are become new – 2 Corinthians 5:17.

No one is worthy of this great kindness, no one is worthy of this great love, and no one is worthy of this great mercy.

By His grace, we change.

It is He who justifies all repentant believers by faith in Christ’s death and resurrection; seeing we have been justified by faith, we should humbly rejoice in the Lord, always.

What fruits are produced from the garden of your heart? Are they thorns and briers or firs and myrtles?

Jesus can transform anyone’s life; He can change your heart. He can cultivate His beauty within you through the power of His Spirit received by faith in His Gospel.

Thank you, Jesus

May you know Christ’s grace and truth.

The Way – The Only Way

“There is way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” – Proverbs 16:25

An inexperienced hiker found himself lost in the woods; he had assured his friends that he knew the way. If it were not for the expert amongst them, their party would have not found their way again.

There is a way that “seems” right to a man.

To put all of one’s confidence in a way that “seems” right is as unwise as the hiker, who because of pride and fatigue, sought an easier “unknown” path to travel instead of the path that he knew would have assuredly directed him to his destination.

Too often, dear reader, we choose the path that “seems” right. After all, we reason, we are able to determine what is right for ourselves? This is precisely the reason this Proverb is written.

To all those who think that their way is right, the Word of God is warning you.

Your way is wrong because it leads to death.

Your way is false because it leads to destruction.

Your way is a lie because it ends at the beginning of eternal damnation and hell fire.

Your soul is at stake. You are choosing a way (your way) that “seems right” to you, but it is killing you. You have chosen a path that leads to death.

Jesus Christ declared very clearly to all who were willing to listen: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the father but by me” (John 14:6) – these are all powerful words.

These are the Words that sever the joints from the marrow, friends from family, and even fathers from sons.

Here we read of EXCLUSION – unequivocal, unashamed exclusion.

Jesus of Nazareth, the King of Jews, did not come to rally people to new ideas or philosophies of life.

He did not come to reorganize or to reshuffle the vain ways of man.

He came to save you. Do you understand? He came to save you.

Dear soul, there is a way that seems right to a man, but if that way is not Jesus Christ, then that way is death.

There is only ONE ROAD to heaven. There is only ONE WAY to God.

JESUS CHRIST – THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE.
