You aren't here by chance

You Aren’t Here by Chance
 At times before I was really walking with Jesus, I would have such as spiritual low that I wouldn’t want to talk to anyone about God. I just knew that if I talked to anyone about God I would be as a hypocrite because I didn’t really believe in Him myself. I was not sure if he even existed. If you have ever got to this point in your life, I want to share with you just a quick thought; I want you to imagine taking a stone some kind of a rock and just throwing it against the ground. The only thing you would expect from that rock hitting the ground is maybe it would shatter and as soon as it shattered it would break up into smaller pieces.  We would never expect out of those shattered rocks to emerge a brand new piece of technology such as a cell phone. If you see your cell phone sitting on your table, we all know that it was created by engineers, companies who put a lot of time and energy and science into that piece of technology. We don’t ever assume that it was just created by chance. We also know that we as human beings are MUCH more complex, much more sophisticated and any piece of technology. So how can we assume that all technology was created by an intellect, but that we might be chance and maybe God is just somewhere out in the universe and He doesn’t want to communicate with us? Obviously, cell phones were made to communicate, and obviously human beings were made to communicate with their Maker. We are not by chance. The world is not by accident. But the reason why we can’t hear from God clearly is due to our own sin, our own fault. It’s not that God is broken or He just somewhere out in space, it’s that people love of their sin and their darkness more than the light of the truth. Compare it to the cell phone analogy again; There are a lot of people that are just scared of technology, it’s not that the creators of the cell phone made something that is too hard to use.  It’s not hard to get on your cell phone and call someone in a different country, is not hard to upload a YouTube video, it’s actually quite easy. But if you’re just scared of technology, you’ll never pick it up and use it. And (likewise), if you just think that the only people that can hear from God are pastors and church leaders and spiritualists, then you won’t do the work of getting to know your Creator your Heavenly Father. Jesus created you and me and everyone, and you are MUCH MORE sophisticated and much more loved then any piece of technology that man has created. You’re not by mistake and you’re not by a chance. Jesus created you, and the only thing stopping you from getting to know your Creator is YOURSELF. If you get on your knees and start praying and asking Lord Jesus; “Who are You? Please open my ears to hear You...”  He will communicate with you because He is alive and He loves you. What holds you back?  What keeps you from really praying and asking for ears that here and eyes that see? May the grace of Jesus be with you.

We are judged by Jesus's words not bossy Christian

We Will be Judged Jesus’s Words NOT Bossy Christians 
Many of us are controlled and bossed around by what people think. Even if we think something that is true, we are reserved and speaking out that truth because we are fearful of what people may say, they may call us name, or call us a false prophet or cast us out of the church. It is true today and it was also true during the times of Jesus with the Jews. But each and every single one of us will be judged according to the words of Jesus NOT some church and their doctrine, not some preacher on the internet or in some church. We won’t be judged according to the rules of our parents or our grandparents or anyone else. We will be judged according to the words of Jesus, those are the words that will judge us when we take our last breath.
 I want to read to you John chapter 12 starting in verse 42; “Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him (being Jesus), but because of Pharisees they did not confessed Him, lest they be put out of the synagogue, for they love the praise of men more than the praise of God.” See, even during Jesus’s time, many of the Jews saw the miracles of Jesus, they saw what Jesus was doing and they wanted to believe in Him, but because they fear the religious crowd, they were scared to speak up and to walk with Jesus, they just kept it inside of them instead of proclaiming the truth of God.
 “Then Jesus cried out and said; ‘He who believes in Me, believes not in Me, but in Him who sent Me, and He who sees Me sees Him who sent Me.  I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. And if anyone here is My words and does not believe, I do not judge Him, for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. He Who reject Me and does not receive My words as that which judges him. The WORD that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.’”
 Many people have Jesus wrong, many street preachers, many internet preachers, many church leaders… They have this idea that they should call fire out of heaven and kill sinners. Jesus did not come to kill sinners, He came to call sinners to repentance, to save their souls. He doesn’t want us just to continue to be sinners, but he wants to save us from our sins, THUS us calling us OUT of our sins, that we may be saints, holy and pure before our God. 
I want to continue with what Jesus said here, vs. 49 and 54; “For I have not spoken on My own authority but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His command is everlasting life, therefor, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me so I speak.”
 Jesus and His Father are ONE.  That doesn’t mean that Jesus is the Father or the Father is Jesus, (as some Pentecostals believe), But He and His Father are ONE. And Jesus has the words of everlasting life. If we want to enter into the presence of God, then we need to live according to the words of Jesus, not someone else’s words, not someone else’s standards, not their doctrines, not there interpretations of God. But we have to live according to the words of Jesus, THAT is the law for us. Will we live according to the words of Jesus and never be ashamed? Or will we keep ourselves reserved because of what the church says, their laws, their doctrines, do we fear being a hypocrite? 
 You know I would rather be a hypocrite in the eyes of people and right before God, then a hypocrite before God and look right before church people, before the pastor’s, before the elders and deacons, before all the lay people in the church. I would rather be right before God and have everyone think I’m a liar and a hypocrite and a false prophet. 
What about you?  Would you rather be right with God and detested by people?  Would you rather them call you false, but be right with God? Or would you rather have everyone speak well of you,  but in reality, God is against your soul, because you play the hypocrite and you haven’t really repented of the sins He’s called you to repent from?
Don’t Look to the standard of men, don’t look to the standard of people. Jesus and His words are the words that will judge you and me and everyone on the last day. Are we living according to the words of Jesus and are we honoring Him and living for Him with all of our heart, soul,  mind and strength? May the grace of Jesus be with you.

What we learned from the life & death of Jan Boshoff (finalcall07)

This man by the name of Jan Boshoff truly was a man of God. You can find his videos and his testimony on the internet under (finalcall07).  He passed away January 19th 2020. He taught me many things and not because it was his teachings but the Holy Spirit that worked through him. One of the things that I learned even in my more mature Christian walk is that we should never complain. Even though this man had cancer, he could barely hold up his head, he could barely speak in his last days he continued to preach Jesus and he never complained.
 Even though people persecuted him and many people hated him and any chance they got they drug his name to the mud, he did not complain but he continue to keep his eyes on Jesus and he continued to be steadfast in the truth. While most Christians would just give up he continue to push through and he never let go of Jesus and he finished on the Rock. He left a very good example for us to follow. He left all of us without excuse. If Jesus healed this man maybe we would think that we had an excuse, we could say to ourselves, "Well Jesus healed this man, why didn’t he heal me? Why didn’t he heal my mom when she passed away?"  But Jesus let this man have cancer and did not heal him, yet he continually praised Jesus even with cancer even with people against him, he praised Jesus and he never gave up. Will we follow Jesus and continue to praise Him no matter what?  Will we continue to preach Jesus even though people resist us and hate us?  No matter what our trial or tribulation will we never give up hope and to our last breath endure with Jesus to the very end?

Imposter "holy" spirits and Christians

Imposter “holy” spirits and Christians 
There is only one true Holy Spirit that comes from the Father above. Jesus promised this gift of the Holy Spirit to those that would obey Him and seek Him. There are however many impostor “holy” spirits, these are actually demons, people call them spirit guides, and there are even some Christians who have received false “holy” spirits and they think that they are getting revelation from God. They start to hear very strange things from the “holy” spirit and they have strange manifestations that come from the supposed “holy” spirit. But they are actually demons that they hear.
 Because I was Baptist, I know how a lot of Christians think, they will say; “Well we have a more sure Word of God in the Bible, so don't rely on the Holy Spirt, rely on what we know which is recorded in the Bible.” This is a false train of thought because, I know you can get a dozen men who all claim to have the Holy Spirit in the same room and they can even all be reading the exact same scripture, the exact same verse from the exact same diversion and they can come up with a dozen different interpretations. The scripture did not help them to see the truth or to come into the truth. Just remember the Pharisees who had Jesus in front of them, they compared to Jesus to their scriptures, which they would say is the absolute truth, and they found Jesus to be a liar and a heretic and worthy to be killed. The point here being the scriptures will not lead you into truth, if you don’t have the Holy Spirit the scriptures are no good to you. But if you do receive the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit will teach you what is meant in the scriptures and will bring to your memory all things that you have read in the scriptures and will help you distinguish between truth and error, He even tells you of things to come. 
So how can we know the difference between a lying spirit, that pretends to be the Holy Spirit, our own thinking inside of our mind, and when the Holy Spirit is actually speaking to us? If you want to know, I do encourage you to read John chapter 14-16.  In those chapters Jesus speaks about the gift of the Holy Spirit. And one disciple asked; “How is it Lord that the world won’t be old to see you but we will?” and Jesus is response to them is that the world is not going to be able to see Him, but we will know Him because He is in us and we are in Him, and if we seek Jesus with all of our heart, if we seek what is good and pleasing to God, then His Holy Spirit will be sent to us, He will manifest Himself to us and He will teach us all things, He will guide us.
 The way that you will be able to know the difference between the true Holy Spirit who will speak you and teach you, and a lying spirit, is by the Holy Spirit that’s inside of you!  And there’s no way good way to explain it until you have met Jesus for yourself and until He has given you the gift of the Holy Spirit. It’s exactly like Jesus said, the world will not see Him nor understand Him.  To the world it’s just another spirit, there’s this spirit, there’s that spirit, there’s 8 billion spirits and who could tell the difference? But if you have received the Holy Spirit and your hearing from your heavenly Father, you are one of His sheep, and His sheep KNOW His voice, they don’t listen to strangers.  And if you pray and you seek Jesus with all your heart and you do find Him, just don’t let go of His voice.  
You will know His voice, you will know the difference between Him and all the other evil spirits, all the other people that say; “I’ve heard a word from God, I’ve heard directly from Jesus that…” this that and the other… you will be able to tell the difference because you know your Master’s voice and you know the difference between that evil spirits, your own thinking and the voice of your Master the Holy Spirit. 
The only way to know is to get to know your Maker, to get to know Jesus. He made you, He made your mind, He made your soul, He made everything that is you that is physical in this realm, and everything that is you spiritually and He knows how to speak to you. So, if you want to get to know Him and know the truth and know how to distinguish truth from error, start praying to Him. Be serious to seek Him and want to do His will.  He will teach you and He will guide you.  Jesus did not promise us an elder, He did not promise us a pastor, and He did not promised us the scriptures like the Pharisees had to lead us.  Jesus promised us the better gift of His Holy Spirit.  Will you receive Him and when you make Him your ONLY Teacher?  Will you be able to tell the difference between your Master’s voice and the imposters?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

True disciples verse Impostors and deceptive charity

True Disciples Vs. Imposters & Deceptive Charity 
There is a way to tell true disciples who are following Jesus from imposters. Jesus said that the way all will know you are (His) disciples is by if you have love for one another. (Jn 13:35)  If we really have love for one another and love for our Father in Heaven, then people will see that loved and they will see the difference between us and the world who doesn’t really care for other people. At best the world has charity and generosity.
When I was in church there was a great number of people who love me in the flesh. They never told me about the truth of Jesus, they never called me to repent of my sins, even when people saw that I was in sin, they didn’t call me to repent. But they did have charity. They did have love for my Earthly needs, that is why people would help me with things like food, you know groceries or gas, helping me with rent or whatever it was. People do have charity, but charity is not what God requires, He requires us to have true love for one another, the sort of love that comes from our Father in heaven.
 Remember that the greatest commandment of all is not just charity, but it is to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, all of our soul, all of our mind and all of our strength. And then the second greatest commandment is to love our neighbor as our self. It’s not that charity is bad or evil, but the problem is people hold on to charity to look good, just to do good deeds for others because they love humanity.  But if we don’t have the love of our Father in heaven first, then who don’t really have the love of Jesus in us and we’re not true disciples. 
True disciples really have love for one another because they know that Jesus loved us first. True love is that Jesus lay down His life for us, and we also ought to lay down or lives for others. We have to have that kind of love that is unconditional, even praying for our enemies and those that persecute us. The way you can tell the difference, whether it is online, or whether you’re in some church somewhere (Not that I’m advocating going to church), wherever you are is, if people really love God with all of their heart, are they loving others as themselves? Are they proving that they are God’s children by their love?
 There is a lot of imposters, they have a lot of doctrines, they know the Bible, they can quote everything to you to prove one thing or another, but they don’t have one ounce of love in them. They don’t really care for people’s souls, they don’t really care to win souls into the kingdom of God. They care to politic, they care about money, they care about fame. They care to make everyone think that they are loving and accepting of everyone, but we know that is not true love. Just accepting everything is not true love, even heathens are willing to accept their own. 
Worldly people want to see a kind of a peace that is a peace that just accepts all religions.  Now I know Baptists and Pentecostal and certain religious sects, they don’t just accept all religions, but they do except everyone within their little religious sect.  When I was Baptist, I was well accepted, people loved me for being Baptist (like them) they loved Andy. But when I started hearing from Jesus, they rejected the words of Jesus that He was speaking through me. They wanted the old Andy back. They wanted to love me and to be charitable, but they didn’t want it love the GOD that was working through me. 
True love is accepting the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior, accepting Him and ALL of His words all of His teachings, and having His love in you, that you may really love others as yourself.
 So don’t get charity mixed up with God’s love and don’t let imposters deceive you, thinking that they are loving when they are just loving their own Ministries their own lives (their own people) their own selves. Don’t be deceived by imposters. The true disciples who are really following Jesus, they love others and the whole world will KNOW by their love!  Do we really have the love of Jesus in us, are we loving God with all of our might and are we loving our neighbor as ourselves? Or do we just have “charity” like the heathens also have charity? May the grace of Jesus be with you

Overcome all anxieties and worries of the world

Overcome all Anxiety and Worries of the World
It is written in Philippians chapter 4:6-7; “Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds and hearts through Christ Jesus.” There are a lot of things that we can let our heart be concerned about or be anxious about in this world. But if we are the children of God, it is a wonderful thing to know that our God is alive and that He cares for us. Jesus hears our prayers. Supplication is begging or humbly asking something, something that is on our mind or on our heart.  And when we pray we know that the Lord hears our prayers. The way to be guided through our life is through prayer, by constantly staying on our knees, seeking the Lord and asking Him what to do. We don’t have to be smart or read the future. We don’t have to know how to interpret all the scripture in order to navigate through life and avoid the spiritual potholes, but we do have to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.  We have to stay connected with Him, because the branch that is disconnected from the vine cannot continue to live. People are not the Vine.  The church is not the Vine. Jesus Christ Himself is The Vine and we are the branches, and the way we stay connected to Him is by prayer, asking Him to guide us, just saying to Him; “I’m not sure which way to go… I’m not sure what to say to this person… I’m not sure how to act in the situation… I’m not sure why this person died… or why the situation happened…”  Whatever our concern is, whatever is worrying us, the best thing we can do is to bring it to straight to the throne of God, to pray to Him to say; “Lord Jesus help me, help me to overcome my anger…help me to overcome this situation…”  And whatever your situation is, if you fix your eyes on Jesus, He WILL carry you through. Jesus said; “Seek first the Kingdom of God and HIS righteousness and everything else will be added unto you…”  Are we truly seeking JESUS first?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Don't flood your mind with entertainment like a heathen

Don’t Flood Your Mind With Entertainment Like a Heathen
Don’t fill your mind with fruitless entertainment like a heathen, reading novels and books just to entertain you and to evade reality, filling your mind and your eyes with movies and with music… I’m not talking about EDUCATIONAL things like reading a math book for high school or anything like that, I’m talking about how many people just flood their minds with nonsense.  They check out book after book, of fantasy books at the library, just to take their mind off of reality.  They watch movie after movie just to entertain themselves so they can evade thinking about what they need to actually do in like to be right with their Maker, with GOD.  All of us could die today, and will we have been doing what was fruitful before our GOD, will we be found bearing good fruit, will we have been in prayer, seeking the LORD with all of our might, or will we be found as a people flooding our minds with nonsense, fruitless entertainment, fruitless LIES.  Remember that entertainment such as novels, fiction novels and  movies, THEY ARE NOT TRUE, they are just made up stories, and MOST of them are NOT as a parable (reflecting truth), they are not as something educational, THEY ARE LIES, and all liars and those who partake in a lie and let a lie entertain them, will have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, where all liars go.  As Christians we have to keep ourselves separate from this wicked kind of entertainment, just flooding our mind with fruitless nonsense.  Will we have the truth of Jesus on our heart?  Will we endure with Him and will be bear GOOD FRUIT, or will we put falsehood into our life, nonsense and fruitless garbage through entertainment?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Is 75% of North America really Christian?

Is 75 % Of North America Really Christian?
 About 75% of North America claims to be Christian.  If you compare that to say India, only about 2% even claim Christianity. So, is North America more likely to go to heaven because they claim Christianity compared to India? Jesus never said that we would enter the Kingdom of God simply by claiming Christianity or claiming that we believe in Him. Jesus said that in order to enter the Kingdom we have to be born again. I want to read to you what He said to Nicodemus in John chapter 3. “Most I surely I say to you unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘you must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” If you truly have been born of the Spirit of God, you do not go where you wish, you do not live by your own opinion or your own personality.  Because you have received the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit guides you. He shines through you, and what people see through you is the Spirit of God, not your own personality or your own opinions. Do you suppose that because 75% of the United States or North America rather, claims to be Christian, that they are going to heaven? Of course not! One time I was on this mission trip and I happen to ask the pastor about his testimony, how he became a Christian. His response to me was that he was always a Christian, he was born Christian.  So, then I asked him the rude question, well if you were born, say for sample to a different religion, maybe Muslim would you today be Muslim?  Everyone found the question to be rude, he didn’t respond to me.  But the question still remains:  Are you only a Christian because you were born Christian?  Because being born Christian means ZERO. Jesus even said to Nicodemus who was a leader of the Jews that he had to be born again. All of us have to be born again if we are going to see the kingdom of God and enter into His presence. We have to receive the Holy Spirit we have to repent of our old life. We cannot just believe things about Christianity, just accepting doctrines that the church puts before us. We have to have a real encounter with Jesus Christ and be changed, have a change of mind and a change of heart. We have to become a new person. Have you been changed, are you truly born again? Or are you part of that 75% of North America that claims Christianity but who hasn’t been born again?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Hard work effort and persistence

Hard Work Effort and Persistence
Hard work effort and persistence is what it takes to go with Jesus every single day. It’s not about just believing things about Him, it’s not about a one-time experience where you pray one prayer, but repentance is proven by your life and by your fruit every single day. It’s a relationship with Jesus that is continual. You can tell by a craftsman’s work if his work is actually solid and made to last or if it was just made to sell. You may think that something is made quality but you kind of know in the back of your mind that because you only paid $100 for the couch it’s probably not that quality, but it’s one of those things that looks good in the store.  You bring it home and within a week it’s falling apart. You know if something is quality or not, not just by the way it looks, but then by testing it. Everyone’s faith is going to be tested and their works are going to be tested and if your craftsmanship falls apart, it’s because it’s not done in Jesus.  Everything is going to be tested to see if it’s really done in the Lord, if it’s quality or if it’s poor craftsmanship. That’s why the Apostle Paul wrote in Galatians chapter 6; “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows that he will also reap.  For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary in doing good for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” This part of the Gospel at large is being left out in the Christian churches. The pastor’s get up to the pulpit and they preach Grace. They say that we are saved by grace and they leave out WORKS. They act as though all works that are through the Holy Spirit are filthy rags. It is true that all the works of the FLESH are as filthy rags to God. But when we truly repent and put on righteousness and the Holy Spirit is working through us, the works that are done in the Holy Spirit are not filthy rags. But the church and the pastors are saying that any works are as filthy rags, it doesn’t matter who it comes from, even if you’re doing works in the Lord it’s filthy rags. That’s not true. If your craftsmanship is shown to be filthy, then it is of the flesh. But if your craftsmanship is a good work because it has been done in the Lord, FULL of the Holy Spirit and you are full of righteousness, then that is a work that will last.  That is why Jesus also said that we are going to be justified by our works, this is another verse that Jesus spoke that is left out in the pulpits in the Christian churches. This is found in Matthew chapter 16:24-27; “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward EACH ACCORDING TO HIS WORKS.’” This section of the Gospel has been left out. The Christians in the church and the pastors on the pulpit like to say that we will not be judged according to our works. But this is exactly what Jesus said. Your works will show if you are genuine or if you were a hypocrite. And your works will also show if your product was something done quality in the Lord from the Holy Spirit, or if it was done just to sell.  And the “gospel” today (in the false church) is a product made to sell by preachers and by Christians who are making a false product, that is made by the flesh. Are we really working hard for Jesus? Are we enduring with Him and is the product of our life, IS IT QUALITY?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Or are you part of that 75% of North America that claims Christianity but who hasn’t been born again?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

A people Moved only by their CREATOR

A People Moved ONLY by Their MAKER
There are few creations that can only be moved by the Creator or by the Maker. I want you to imagine with me for a moment some kind of peculiar element that in the hands of one, is as tungsten or is as a diamond that can scratch anything. But you cannot mold a diamond, you can’t take it with your hands and bend it to your image, it would be impossible. The same with tungsten, if you have tungsten it’s extremely hard metal and if you try to mold it, it would just break. But imagine that same element in the hands of a different One, and it becomes as gold and pliable or something like clay which in the potter’s hand is easily moldable to whatever that image is that the Potter is shaping it too. This would truly be a peculiar element because there is no other element like it. Either an element (peoples) seems to be hard but it is fragile and cracks, or it is soft, which makes it pliable, but moldable to the image that the maker is making it. But this peculiar element would be an element (spiritual nation) that in one’s hand is as hard and dense as a rock but in another’s hand is as moldable as clay.
 If we want to please our Creator, then the only one who should be able to mold us in the whole wide world should be our Creator. We should be that peculiar people, that peculiar element, that only can be moved by our Maker.
Think for example of Satan, no one can control Satan but the Maker. YOU can’t control Satan. If you allow him into your life, he will control you, and he will start to manipulate you and take over your body and your mouth.  You will become just a body for his purpose. But if you reject Satan and if you cast him out, if you cling on to the words of Jesus, His teachings, if you cling on to the Lord and hold onto His power, Jesus will help you overcome. It’s not by your own flesh that you overcome the devil. It’s not by your own personality that you can boss around Satan. You can’t teach the devil a lesson. But if you stay close with Jesus, the devil fears Jesus Christ, even the name. THEN you’ll be able to overcome.
So it’s Satan can only be controlled by the Maker, in the exact reverse order, or the exact opposite, the polar opposite, we should only be able to be moved by our Maker, not by the world not by the devil, not by people. See, many people are moved by false doctrines, they are moved by people’s opinions, they are moved by every wave of new teaching on the internet.  And because they are so moldable by people they can be held in the hands of the devil and the devil can move them to his image. But we need to be as hard as a rock, because we are founded on the Rock of Jesus Christ, and when the world tries to touch us we need to be completely USELESS to their purpose. We cannot be molded to the image of the world, it would be like putting that rock in the hands of the world and they think; “This is useless, I can’t use it, I can’t mold it to my image.” But as soon as that same rock or element is in the hands of the Creator, we become as of this moldable gold or this clay that can easily just be molded to however He wants us to be, that we may be useful to His purpose.
 That is why the Apostle Paul wrote in Romans chapter 12; “I beseech you therefore Brethren by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a Living Sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service, and do not be conformed to the to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
 If we want to be pleasing to our Creator we have to be moldable by His hands, not by the world. Our spiritual act of worship is to be holy and a moldable by our Creator. Our spiritual act of worship is to be renewed in our mind, allowing the Holy Spirit to change us, to be exactly the sort of people He wants us to be.
 Our spiritual act of worship is not just singing songs that the church does, giving false worship and praise to God, pretending that we are a holy people, which in fact we are being molded to the image of church doctrines and Earthly worldly ideas. We should be separate from the world and only allow our Creator to be molding us. Who are you moved by? Are you moved by Satan and this world?  Does everything shake you? Does every new doctrine throw you off? Or are you unshakable because you are on the foundation of Jesus Christ and are you only moldable by Him, are you in the hands of your Maker? May the grace of Jesus be with.

Baptism and the thief on the cross excuse

Baptism and the Thief on the Cross Excuse
Rejecting to be baptized in water is a good indication that you have not truly repented, because all that the water baptism represents is the beginning of your journey with Jesus, that you have repented of the old lifestyle, to be raised in the newness of life with the Lord Jesus. That’s why you go under the water, to leave the old behind, to leave it in the grave or as DEAD. And then you come up, representing you’re going to live with the Lord in the newness of the life with a new heart and a new mind.
 But Christians today are rejecting baptism and making excuses, they say; “Well we don’t need that for our salvation…” and then they make doctrines around that, “It’s not a salvational thing, is just an obedience thing… but God Saves us by grace anyway…” So, on and on it goes with their excuses. But even Jesus Himself was baptized, not that he was a sinner, but he said; “Let us do this to fulfill ALL righteousness.”  And His ministry started AFTER He was baptized.
We are as Christians to follow in the path of Jesus. But many Christians are just making excuses, they don’t want to really repent, they don’t want to put the old life of sin in the grave, and they don’t care about baptism. They just blow off the things of God, and then they make their own interpretations of the Bible and what they should be doing and then they start living for God THEIR OWN way. You cannot live for God your own way and start your own ministry and build your own kingdom and think that you will enter God’s Kingdom. You will enter your OWN kingdom, but you won’t enter the Kingdom of God.
Those who make excuses will be excluded from the kingdom of God. One big excuse is that the thief on the cross… Jesus said to him, “Today you’ll be with me in paradise.” And he wasn’t baptized, therefore they say that justifies me and you, it justifies all of us not being baptized because, “After all, it’s not a salvational thing, Jesus let him in and he didn’t even have to be baptized...” Well, what is YOUR excuse? The thief was up on the cross! But what is your excuse that you can’t be baptized? If you’re just making excuses, then you’re not ready to go with the Lord, you’re not ready to follow the Holy Spirit.
 Everyone’s situation is different. The thief was up on the cross, he wasn’t going to jump down real quick to get baptized and then join Jesus back up on those crosses. But what is your excuse? What is holding you back from truly obeying the Lord and doing what He has called you to do? Will you be found as a man or woman of excuses? Or will you be found as a man or a woman of FAITH and true love for your Master?  May the grace of Jesus be with you

Addressing the confusion around baptism

Addressing the Confusion Around Baptism
There seems to be quite a bit of confusion around baptism, so let’s talk for a few minutes about baptism, what it is and what it is not. I have noticed over the years that depending on which background you are part of you may be under a different misconception of baptism. For example; Catholics are always baptizing specifically with the formula: “In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” But there are some specific Pentecostal groups that only baptize in the name of Jesus. So, then they make this WAR between, “Do you baptized in NAMES or do you baptized in the name of Jesus?” One group finds their proof text in Matthew chapter 28 when Jesus says; “Go therefore and make Disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit.” And the other proof text is found in Acts chapter 2 verse 38; “Then Peter said to them repent and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
 So, then people say, “Which is it?  Do we baptize in names, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit? or do we baptized like Peter said, just in the name of Jesus Christ?” And they get all bent out of shape if you’re baptized one way or the other, and they think that your baptism is invalid if it’s one way or the other. The truth be told hear, it depends on your HEART. Remember that Jesus is not looking at your (religious) background (to validate you), but He is looking at your heart condition, and when you have become baptized in water, He is looking to see if that was true repentance, or if you were just doing it for people. It literally does not matter if you are baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit or if the person baptizing you just said “I baptize you in the name of Jesus.”
We have to get away from these doctrines that are made up by men, either if it’s by Oneness Pentecostals or it’s by a Catholic priest. We need to get away from these things because Jesus is looking at our HEART not these specific doctrines and Creeds and whatever they are that men have made up. So, one of these deceptions around baptism is that you have to be baptized with the right formula. There is no such formula. It has to do with your heart condition and if you’re really sincere to repent and turn from your sins when you are baptized when you are baptized in that water. There is nothing special about the water itself, where you need to go, but that your heart is in the right condition before God, and that you are really ready to turn away from your sins to follow the Lord.
Another deception is that the person who is baptizing you really has to be a solid man of God. Now of course you want to find someone who is a solid man of God, but not man of God who baptizes you does not invalidate or discredit your baptism. In other words, if that person you found to baptize you, in a year or 20 years falls away from the Lord, you suddenly do not just lose yourself salvation or fall away from God simply because the person walked away from the Lord, or they come out that they are not a true believer. It has nothing to do with that person who is baptizing you. It is good idea of course to find someone that you do trust as a true believer, but it is not critical to your walked with Jesus if the person that baptizes you ends up being a false believer or a true believer the rest of their life.
If that were true, any pastor who baptizes someone, that ends up later backsliding and falling away, all the people he baptized would be false believers, and that’s just not true. The Lord judges us on if our heart is right before Him, not if the person who baptized us, or originally brought us to the Lord continues in THEIR faith. Each person will be judged according to THEIR WORDS and THEIR FAITH, their actions. So all these other ideas about baptism we need to just throw away, not worried about the lies that come from Satan, about the name game, the specific water, a specific area, the specific person…
 If you’re not sure about something through,  pray and ask Jesus to guide you, and even if you have not been baptized yet, even if you have not received the Holy Spirit yet, the Holy Spirit will guide you even in baptism. There is no formula where this has to happen first, then this happens… then this happens… It happens however the Holy Spirit happens. You are unique and special, no one else is like you, no one else is in your specific situation, and because Jesus is alive and created you, He will work with you in your specific situation. So, don’t think it’s some cookie-cutter formula where you have to find specific water, and it has to be these specific words. You just have to follow the Holy Spirit and His direction.
 We need to get away from the doctrines and the understandings of men, and start really being led by the Holy Spirit. The Apostle Paul wrote. As many as are led by the Spirit of God THEY are the sons of God. We need to become Sons and Daughters of God who are led by the Holy Spirit not by our interpretation of the scriptures, not buy some doctrines or some decrees of men, but who are really led by the Holy Spirit of God.
People will say; “How do you know? There are many different versions of the Bible and many different interpretations of the Bible, how would you know?”  We’ll the way that we test the spirits is not by an interpretation of the Bible, but it is by the Holy Spirit, and the way that you will know is it when you continue to pray and you pray through to Jesus and you really get to know Him for yourself. There is no other way to test the spirits, to know, other than you truly receiving the Holy Spirit.
I know some people will say, “But many people have different versions of the Holy Spirit…” Well, that is actually true, people have all different opinions of the Holy Spirit, there are different brothers, so-called brothers and sisters in the Lord, that said, “I heard this from the Holy Spirit”, and it directly conflicts with what you heard from the Holy Spirit! So, how are there so many different Holy Spirits? There are not many different Holy Spirits, but people are making their own interpretations of what the Holy Spirit is saying, and that is why it is very dangerous to listen to people. But if you want to know the truth it starts with your own heart condition before your Creator. There is only one Christ, one Jesus Christ who made you, one Creator, there is only one God and one true Holy Spirit that created all of us.  The same Holy Spirit who resurrected Jesus Christ from the dead will also teach you and lead you if you make Him your only Teacher.
People get so many different interpretations and understanding supposedly coming from the Holy Spirit because they listen to men and doctrines of men and they are slanted and persuaded by people’s opinions, rather than going to Jesus as the mark and as the true level of who they should be going to. Instead they bring down the level and they start looking to men and their opinions, and then they critique themselves and others against a certain doctrine that men have made up, their churches, their Bible study’s interpretations…
We need to be going to Jesus because He Himself is the Way the Truth and the Life, no one comes to God the Father except through Him. So, let us not get wrapped up in doctrines and opinions of men, decrees that churches have made in the past. But let us put all of that stuff off, that we may make Jesus Christ our one and only Teacher, that He may lead us in all things and baptized us in His Holy Spirit, that we may truly know our Father in Heaven.
 Go with Jesus and let no one slow you down from being baptized in water if you have not yet been, and then receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit, that the Spirit of God will truly be your Teacher, that He will lead you in all things, and that Jesus Christ will guide you, that your eyes will be fixed on Him, that you may ENDURE with Him into everlasting life. Let nothing stop you.   May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Did Apostle Paul really preach he was bound to sin?

Did Apostle Paul REALLY Preach He Was BOUND TO SIN? 
So, the question is did the Apostle Paul really believe that he was bound to sin and that the good that he willed to do he could not accomplish, but evil and things that he detested and hated, those things he practiced even though it was against his will, it was just sin dwelling in him. In short the answer is NO, absolutely not!  So, why do Christians come to the conclusion that the Apostle Paul was preaching that he himself was a sinner, therefore all of us are sinners, and we are just saved by “easy grace”.
Christians come to this conclusion for 2 reasons; 1) they themselves don’t really want to know Jesus, they would rather just trust their Bible, their own understanding of the scriptures, and number 2, they never get to the conclusion of the argument the Apostle Paul was making.  So, first off we have to really want to know Jesus and we have to want to reconcile things with Him. Secondly, if we’re going to understand the Apostle Paul’s argument we certainly have to read to the END of the argument. We can’t Stop in chapter 7 of Romans. It makes sense how many Christians can come to false conclusions when they don’t get to Paul’s conclusion.  See, in chapter 7 the Apostle Paul speaks about this fight between good and evil or what he calls the law of sin, the law of our flesh, verse the law of the Spirit which is spoken of in chapter 8.  So, when we compare ourselves to the Law of Moses or the Old Testament Law that God gave, even when we want to keep that law with all of our heart, we find this law in us of evil and sin, and we find that we cannot keep it. Therefore, we realize that the Law is good because it is pointing out how evil we are, but when we are in THAT state, we are NOT re-born. It doesn't mean that we STAY in that state.
 But the conclusion comes in chapter 8. Look what the Apostle Paul wrote in chapter 8, this is the conclusion: “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.” The conclusion does not stop there. It's not that we are just in Jesus and we just BELIEVE that we are saved because we believe Jesus has died on the cross… Look what the Apostle Paul wrote, this is the conclusion:  “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus who do NOT walk according to the flesh, but according to the SPIRIT.  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me FREE from the law of sin and death.”  THAT is the conclusion!   If we truly put on righteousness, if we truly repent of our sins, there is now a new law in us, the law of the Spirit of God! No longer are we bound to our sin and the old nature, we are reborn.
So, Christians who Stop in chapter 7 and who are drawing their own conclusions are going to come to a false conclusion every time. Not only do they disagree with the Apostle Paul, not only are they coming to their own false conclusions, but they’re actually rejecting or going against the Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit is teaching us a new law, that we CAN overcome our sins, that we can live holy. The same Holy Spirit that resurrected Jesus Christ from the dead is able to set you FREE and to raise you from death, spiritual death, to the newness of life, and there is hope for you, there is hope for you to really repent, to put your faith in Jesus and to completely STOP SINNING. It’s not by the power of your flesh, but it is by the Spirit of God, the same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead.
 So don’t believe any Christians that say that, “You cannot stop sinning, even look at the Apostle Paul, he couldn’t stop sinning, he was bound to sin, look at his own words…” Don't draw those conclusions, do not believe them, because these Christians have not come to the conclusion in chapter 8, neither do they come to the conclusion that the Holy Spirit leads us to, which is, when we are reborn we live in the newness of life, we do not practice sin, we are not bound to sin because we HAVE been set free!
 Do you really want to be set free of sin and live in the newness of life? Or do you want to stop in chapter 7 where most all of the Christian Church stops, to justify their sin? Will you come into the light and live with Jesus? He loves you, He has made the way for you, but He will not do your work for you of repentance. You have to go with Him, you have to choose to leave your life of sin behind and walk with Him. He will help you to overcome all your addictions, anything that is evil He will call you OUT from, but you have to do the work of repenting. May the grace of Jesus be with you

There is no substitution for Godly Parents

 There is NO Substitution for Godly Parents
There is absolutely no substitution for Godly parents.  As parents we have to raise our own children and we have to raise them up in the truth, teaching them about Jesus, teaching them to love and obey.  As a parent it is your job to raise your children, not the school, not a church, not a babysitter.  If you do not do the work of raising your children, teaching them to love and obey Jesus, by default the world will raise them for hell.  The school system is not Godly, the babysitters are not Godly, the TV is not Godly.  By default children listen to the world when their parents do not do the work that the Holy Spirit has called them to do.  Will you and your household serve the LORD?  Will you raise your children to trust and obey Jesus, that even when they are old, they will not depart from the truth?   Or are you deviating right now?  Are you not teaching your own children to trust and obey the Lord, but you are teaching them how to live hypocritically, you are turning on the TV and letting the TV be the babysitter, you pass them off to the school district or the babysitter?  WHO will raise your children?  Will YOU raise them for the LORD?  Or will this culture, will the devil raise them?  May the grace of Jesus be with you and your household.

sATAN'S Manipulative LIE: "Don't Leave me But be my Salt and Light"

sATAN'S Manipulative LIE: "Don't Leave me But be my Salt and Light"
This morning I had a couple dreams in which Satan showed me my old life. Tempting me with the things of my old life, old friends, old places that I could live, old things that I could do. In one of my dreams I was buying a house in the old town where I used to live, where the Lord showed me it is like Sodom and Gomorrah. In another dream I was driving with the whole family and I was passing through an old camp that I used to go to with the Junior-High kids, and when my children's saw the camp, it looked like Disneyland to them, it looked beautiful. (Not to say we go to Disneyland) and I just knew it was all of Satan, because the devil tries to allure us back to old ways of the world, old sins, to try to tempt us and make us fall back into those old sins, so that we can no longer stand in the truth with the Lord, but we just have the dirt of the world on us.
When I was first coming out of church and trying to leave, one thing people would always tell me was, “You can't leave behind old friends, you can't leave behind the church, it would be abandoning them.”  And I started noticing that the devil has this lie that, “You have to be salt and light for the devil.” You have to go where the devil tells you so that you so that you can be Salt and Light to his people. The trick here is, whenever the devil hears your salt and light, he smiles and pretends to be listening, but the gospel continues to fall on deaf ears, because the devil knows he's never going to come to the Lord. But he can waste all your time and all your energy taking up your salt and light, so that you don't share it anywhere else. The devil says, “Come here, give me your salt and your light, we have plenty of people that need your salt and your light.”  And then you take all your salt and you dumped it on the dunghill. The manure pile does not need our salt. Food needs salt, things that need to be preserved need salt. But the manure pile does not need salt. We need to come out of what it's sinful and evil and perverted, leave behind old friends, leave behind the old towns and the old places that cause us to sin and cause us to stumble. We have to flee Sodom and Gomorrah. Remember when Lot and his wife left, his wife turned around to look back longingly, wanting those old friends, wanting the old house, remember what happened to her? She turned into a pillar of salt and she died that moment! We need to be as the children of God who fix our eyes on the Lord and walk straight out of Sodom and Gomorrah never turning back, never listening to the devil saying, “Oh, come back, be salt and light for me…”
 Remember what is written in Corinthians, this is chapter 15 verse 33 through 34. “Do not be deceived, evil company corrupts good habits, awake to righteousness do not SIN, for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.” It is so true that evil company corrupts good habits or good morals. So many people think, “But the whole church it's like a hospital and we are like doctors fixing them, helping people and if we don't stay in church, how can we help people?” Well, evil company corrupts good habits and when Jesus calls you out of that company you have to leave. You cannot fix people. God is the physician. Jesus Christ is the one that heals people, not you, not me. We are the sheep and we need to follow Him right on out of Sodom and Gomorrah. We cannot fix those people. We have to be holding on to Jesus, following Him or ourselves, and then listening to whatever He tells us to do, and then we can be Salt and Light to the world. But not when we're doing things our own way, living in Sodom and Gomorrah, listening to the devil's lies, thinking that we can throw salt on the dunghill and be Salt and Light for Satan. It will never happen.
 I want to read to you also what the Apostle Paul wrote in 2nd Corinthians chapter 6, when he was speaking to the Corinthians on this matter; “Oh Corinthians, we have spoken openly to you, our heart is wide open. You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections. Now in return for the same, I speak as to children, you also be open. Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship does righteousness have with lawlessness. And what communion has light with darkness. And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a Believer with an unbeliever. Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For YOU are the Temple of the Living God, as God has said; ‘I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God and they shall be My people. Therefore, come out from among them and be separate’, says the Lord. ‘Do not touch what is unclean and I will receive you, I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and my daughters.’ says the Lord Almighty. Therefore, having these promises beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and the spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
 Jesus never taught us to stay in the whorehouse. He did not teach us to stay amongst those who sin and pervert our life and pervert the lives of our family members. He calls us to come out from what is sinful, to come out from The Babylon Church. To come out from her. Then we can follow the Lord in holiness. But if you stay in the Harlot Church system, if you continue to think that you're going to be Salt and Light there, the devil will take all your salt and all your light. He will trample on anything you try to do, and then any light and truth that you do have, it will be thrown to the pigs. Jesus said that we should not throw our pearls to swine, otherwise they will trample all over us.
 In Revelation chapter 18 the same thing as recorded. I want to read it for you. This is starting in verse 1 of chapter 18. “After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the Earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice saying, ‘Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, a cage for every unclean and HATED bird, for all the nations have drunk the wine of the wrath of her fornication. The kings of the Earth have committed fornication with her and merchants of the Earth have become rich to the abundance of her luxury.’ And I heard another voice from Heaven saying, ‘Come out of her My people, least you share in her sins and least you receive her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven and God has remember iniquities.’”
 If we do not come out of the Harlot Church system, then the judgments that are coming on the wicked church will also come on us and our whole family. If we do not come out and stop offering our worship there to God, then people will see all of our worship to God as just the worship to that FALSE church system.  We will enhance the lies in church, even if in our heart we are worshipping God, we will enhance the deception in church because the church is not glorifying God, they have false worship and false praise. We in our hearts may be worshiping the Lord, we may be playing piano, we may be singing or playing guitar, and there are some people in church that are really singing and playing for the Lord, but if you start to see the deception and know the truth, you will just become PART of the deception and even though you are praising the Lord, you will enhance that deception, people will say; “See, she is not a false prophet, there are people here really worshipping the Lord, really praising God, how can she be false?” NO, Jesus calls us to come out of her, to be separate, to offer our worship in a holy and pure manner, that we also may not glorify what is sinful or make it seem like what is dead is still alive. Come out and be separate from what is ungodly.  Be separate, that we may worship the Lord in all holiness and all purity. Be separate so that the judgments of God do not come upon you and your family that are coming upon the wicked whorehouse, Babylon the Great, the church that is fallen and full of demons. May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Are you saved?

Are You Saved?
Jesus said in Matthew chapter 7:13-14; “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are MANY who go in by it.  Because NARROW is the gate and DIFFICULT is the way which leads to life, and there are FEW who find it.” 
 Surprisingly, when Jesus was speaking these words, He was NOT just speaking about the entire WORLD, but He was narrowing this down to people who consider themselves believers in GOD.  Of course atheists are not saved, who reject God flat out.  Of course other religions of the world who practice DEAD RELIGION and reject the truth of Jesus ARE NOT SAVED.  But Jesus was NOT talking about the outside world, He was talking about people who SAY they believe in GOD, IN THE TRUE GOD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, these today would be Christians, people that say they believe in the Bible, that say that they are SAVED.  Look what Jesus goes on to say in Matthew chapter 7, I’m going to read verse 21-23;
 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘LORD, LORD’, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. “
WHO do you think is calling out “LORD, LORD”?  It’s not an atheist? It’s not someone from a different religion…
 “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in YOUR name?’”
Who does wonders in the name of Jesus?  Who does miracles in the name of Jesus? It’s not atheists, it’s not the world out there, it’s not even lukewarm Christians.  Those who are doing wonders or signs in the name of Jesus are Prophets, they are men and women of GOD.  But LOOK what Jesus says about THOSE people…
  “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” 
THAT is how narrow the door is.  If we are doing good works in the name of Jesus, but we still have some sin in our life, if we have not really surrendered EVERYTHING to the Lord, we are still living partially for ourselves, if we have not really dedicated our LIFE to the Lord Jesus, then at the end of our life even though we have done some good, we have called on the Lord, we have cast out demons, we have prophesied in His name, we have loved others, at the end our life He will say; “AWAY FROM ME YOU WHO SIN, YOU WHO COMMIT INIQUITY!”  This includes pretty much the entire Christian church.  Christians today run around saying that they are sinners, they openly confess that they are IN SIN, and they say; “Oh, we are saved, we are saved by GRACE…”  LISTEN TO WHAT JESUS SAID, the judgment is coming ON YOU, YOUR household, YOUR HEAD.  If you don’t truly repent and reconcile with Jesus, the judgment is coming to YOU.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

How long must I spend praying to please God?

How Long Must I Spend Praying to Please God?
I get this question once in a while where people ask; “How long do I need to spend praying a day?”  If you are asking this question your heart is already is not in the right area, and I want you to imagine something with me for a minute: Imagine a 13-year-old boy who loves video games, he confesses that he loves playing video games.  Would that 13-year-old boy who loves video games EVER go up to his parents and ask; “How long do I have to play video games today?”  Would he ask his parents; “Should I only play for an hour?  Do I have to play for over 30 minutes today?”  If a 13 year old boy who is evil because he is addicted to the world and has the love of the world in his heart, has NO PROBLEM playing video games 24 hours a day straight, HOW MUCH MORE should a child of GOD who is TRULY in LOVE with JESUS and who has TRULY RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT have absolutely NO PROBLEM praying ALL DAY!  If we have received the Holy Spirit we WANT to be in payer, we seek the Lord with ALL our heart ALL THE TIME.  It’s not about an hour in prayer, it’s about seeking the Lord ALL THE TIME, praying continually without ceasing.  Do we really have the love of Jesus in us? Have we really received the Holy Spirit?  Or do we have less love in us for Jesus than a junior high boy has for his video game?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Any upright or just person wants to leave a legacy behind him that shows the world a light, that lets people know that the world is a better place because of that person’s life.  In other words, we want to believe that our life meant SOMETHING.  No one wants to go to their grave knowing that their life was totally meaningless, and that the world is not any better than it was before we were born, that is pretty depressing.  But sadly, the older generation is NOT leaving a legacy that is uplifting or encouraging, rather they leave behind money, possessions, an ideology, they leave behind their opinions of the world and it has absolutely ZERO to do with JESUS CHRIST and HIS TRUT.  What a waste your life will be if you follow the legacy of this world, of people who rejected GOD for their OWN opinions.  The older generation at large is leaving a legacy that is not worthy to be looked at.  And they think that they have done something great for the world.  So many things have changed in the last 10 years, technology, how we view the world, so many things have changed, but VERY FEW people have truly come to Jesus and started storing up their treasure in HEAVEN.  If we don’t find our treasure in heaven with the Lord Jesus then our legacy will not even be worth looking at.  I want to read to you what Jesus said in Matthew chapter 6:19-21; “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but ay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”  And also Jesus said in Matthew chapter 6:31-34; “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek.  For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED TO YOU.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things.  Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”   Sadly, this world is no seeking first the Kingdom of God, they are storing up all their treasures here on earth and the legacy they leave behind is a legacy of lies.  If we want to leave anything behind that is true and noble, it has to come from seeking first the Kingdom of God, because if we seek first HIS will then He can shine through us and people can see that light in us, no longer are they seeing OUR legacy, but they are seeking THE TRUTH OF GOD.  Do you want to leave your ow little legacy that will fizzle out and DIE?  Do you want to be a part of the deception of this world that has these lying legacy’s?  Do we want to leave behind a lie and at the end of our life when we die have absolutely nothing to show?  Do we want our life to be meaningless?  Or do we want to take part in the Kingdom of GOD, be connected to JESUS and to have even a part of His Kingdom.  If we seek first the Kingdom of GOD and HIS righteousness, He will give us everything that we need, but we need to COME OUT OF THE WORLD and be separate.  Is your heart really with the LORD, will your life count because you were truly in Him?  Will your life be worthy to be looked at by others?  Or will you just be part of the deception?  May the grace of Jesus be with you

Punk, Rock, Rap, Reggae, Country, Dubstep, Bass, Satanic Tongues

Punk, Rock, Rap, Reggae, Country, Dubstep, Bass, Satanic Tongues
sATAN uses music of the pop-culture and also underground musicians to lead young people to HELL.  Most music is owned by sATAN because he owns the musicians that are making that music.  Music such as Rock, Punk, Raga, Hard-Core, Meal, Rock&Roll… These sorts of musicians or rappers are NOT of God.  Jesus did NOT call us to be Christian rappers or rockers, Jesus called us to be separate from the world, to live HOLY and to MAKE DISCIPLES.  Don’t give your ear to sATAN, be separate from worldly music.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Does your fruit authenticate you as a disciple?

Does Your Fruit AUTHENTICATE You as a Disciple?
The way we can tell someone is an authentic Christian or not is by their fruit.  Jesus said that every tree is know by it’s fruit either for good or for evil.  A good tree produces good fruit and you know it’s a good tree, a bad tree produces bad fruit and you know it’s a bad tree.  It’s interesting because some Christians think that you can’t know the hears of men, they say, “Only GOD can know the heart.”  But these same exact Christians KNOW what Jesus taught, they know that they are KNOWN by their fruits.  But then they get around that saying; “Well, you can know my fruit but you can’t know my heart.”  Well, is it possible to have a really bad heart, but to have good fruit for the LORD?  Of course not!  Either you are a good tree, you are connected to the LORD, you are connected to the VINE, and you are producing GOOD fruit, or you are connected to the WORLD and you are producing EVIL fruit because you are connected to the DEVIL.  Jesus said in John chapter 15, He said;
1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the VINE, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.”
If we want to be the disciples of Jesus, we have to show that we are His disciples by staying connected to HIM and bearing GOOD FRUIT.  Are we proving we are authentic by our fruit? Or does the fruit of our life show that we have OTHER interests, that we are NOT really interested in the WORDS OF JESUS AND HIS KINGDOM?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.
