Jesus is the Light!

Everything and I do mean everything that we have on this earth can be made into a parable to understand the ways of God. Take for instance our ways of traveling.  Roads, signs, bridges etc….  There are roads and on these roads are all sorts of signs that help us get to where we are going.  Life itself is a road and if we look around we can see signs everywhere that show us where we are going. If we ignore those signs we get lost and or suffer consequences. Sometimes that is death or an accident.  The same holds true with life in general and the paths we choose to take. 

The Bible says there is only one way to get to Heaven and that is through Jesus Christ! Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” (John 14:6)  One can take the wrong road and go someplace else besides Heaven if they do not follow the signs that God has given us!  The signs are all around us!  The world is in darkness and cannot see and some refuse to see these signs.  

The bible says that the wages of sin is death.  Most people have within their own hearts a moral compass that shows them what sin is. They know when they are doing right and when they are doing wrong.  This is built in to us because God created us that way!  It shows too as a lot of people that don’t even know Jesus as Lord are basically good hearted people. But it is also obvious that there are some that shut that compass off or decide not to pay attention to it.  😦  Sadly these people will follow the wrong path which ultimately leads to death.  

If you are seeking the right path know this.  Jesus is the light!  He will show you that path.  It isn’t that hard to understand really.  The biggest problem most times is our own foolish pride and or ego.  Some people think that Jesus is a crutch.  I am here to tell you right now that if He is I need that crutch!  But He really isn’t a crutch, He is a rock!  Jesus is THE ROCK on which I choose to build my life!  My faith is in Him and Him alone. There is no other way than through Him to reach the Father and this I know in my heart.  If you don’t know Jesus as the Lord of your life please do not wait any longer to seek Him out.  Time is short now and the time of Grace is nearing the end. Don’t wait until it is too late and you are thinking: I should have listened to those people I thought were crazy.  Jesus loves you! You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. It is a decision that you will never regret.

Matthew 7:7-8 (KJV)

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Jesus is Coming!

I wrote this after in April 2013 after God awakened me the night before. Thought I would share it here on my blog. 

Jesus is coming!

April 2, 2013 at 4:04pm

 

Last night I was very forcefully awakened at midnight by the Holy Spirit.  I was almost screaming Jesus is coming and I am not sure how many times I said it.  The feeling I had was mostly indescribable.  First there was a flash of light and I felt like I was being lifted up and I starting crying out Jesus is coming.  I think I said it 3 times but am not sure.  (I do know that I said it with such force that my throat was and is irritated though.) My husband was jolted awake also and immediately reached and grabbed me in his arms.  He couldn’t talk for a while he was so taken aback by the whole thing. When I asked him what he was thinking he said I was just asking God to forgive me for all I have done wrong.   

 

After that I shook for probably an hour and prayed for others as well, including people that are not really my friends.  My husband and I also talked about how horrible it would be to be left behind.  With that in mind I did finally try to go back to sleep but I couldn’t sleep much at all.  The Holy Spirit was speaking to me about scriptures I had recently read. 

 

He revealed to me that there are a lot of people that are Christians that have not received the infilling of the Holy Spirit.  When the Rapture takes place before the great tribulation …and that will be very soon….many of these people are in danger of being left behind.  The one that is restraining the anti-christ right now is the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit dwells in God’s people.  When the Holy Spirit is removed from the earth the people that He dwells in will also be removed.  

God is about to pour His Holy Spirit out upon His people.  By this you will know who you are.  “Jhn 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” Those that really want to live a Holy life before God will be filled. 

 

Going to church alone is not what will save you but having Christ in your heart and striving to live a life that is in line with what the scripture has spoken to you. That is why the Bible says that we must “study to show ourselves approved.” If you are seeking His direction and if you can humble yourself and ask Him to work in you and to let His will be done in your life then you will be filled with His Spirit. 

There are people who go to church all the time that don’t do this.  They say “I will not change for anybody.”  They are stiff necked (rebellious, obstinate) people who have set their hearts against God.  Their hearts are like the fallow ground which was once tilled but now has grown hard and nothing but weeds can grow in it. Good seeds can not take hold because it is hard and not fertile. God’s Word can not penetrate their hearts while it is in this state. It doesn’t matter what we say to them because they can not hear the Word much less understand what it means.  They are full of pride and pride comes before the fall. 

 

Pride keeps us from hearing what God is saying. People that are full of pride are always certain that they are right and refuse to listen to anyone else including and or especially the Word of God. They get defensive when they are criticized and may feel like they are being judged even though we may just be trying to help them understand what God’s Word says. They make excuses for the way they live such as, “nobody’s perfect, I can’t walk on water, I was born that way, I came from a dysfunctional family and or I was abused as a child.”  These people will lash out and say and do hurtful things when they are presented with truth and have no desire to examine their own life (circumcise their hearts) in light of God’s Word and even though a lot of the excuses they make may be true, they refuse to accept help in any form other than doing what they want to do. They tend to pray without repenting (turning from their sins) and therefore repeat the same mistakes over and over again.  This can happen to anybody when they harden their hearts thinking that they know it all and sometimes we don’t realize it until it is too late!

 “Break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord until He comes to rain righteousness on you… ” Hosea 10:12

( I see myself in everything I just typed at one time or another in my life.) 

Lord have mercy on me a sinner and help me to be teachable. Lord you are the Potter and I am the clay!

Acts 17:11 (NIV) Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

Invest an hour of your time ~ what you learn now may mean eternal life for someone else! The ultimate purpose of all our Bible studying is to bring loved ones to Christ before the Day of Judgment. The most important people in our lives should come to Heaven with us. God answered my prayer by getting all of my immediate family saved within 1 year of my becoming a Christian. There were some things He led me to do and not do. In this teaching, I reveal to you how to break the devil’s power over their lives and how to share the Gospel effectively.

The Full Armor Of God!

The Armor of God- http://www.acts17-11.com/armor.html

Ephesians 6:10-17

King James Version (KJV)

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
