Fear Not; for I Am With Thee…

“Fear not; for I AM with thee; be not dismayed; for I AM thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of MY righteousness.” (Isaiah 41:10 KJV)

I love the many promises of God. Today, you may be going through a difficult time. You may be facing a situation that you thought would never come into your life. You may even feel that all hope is nearly gone. You could be facing a major sickness or illness. Your financial status could be declining faster than you can manage to hold onto. A loved one or close friend may have turned their back on you without sufficient cause. You may be facing the unexpected loss of a job; or even worse the loss of a precious loved one. These are devastating times in our lives when “man’s words” only offer temporary comfort but they don’t “fix” the hurt or dismay…Even the most sincerest of words seem to fall on barren soil…

But, GOD’s WORDS are NOT man’s words. God’s Words are True and Faithful. His Words have stood the test of time and will continue to do so until the end of time…You needn’t fear for what lies ahead…For, GOD himself will show you the way…It might take time; but time well worth the wait…For, God has a plan for you and for your life that only HE can orchestrate and cause to come to pass.

God sees your tears. God knows your pain. God hears your pleas. And, HE alone can open doors that no man can shut and HE can close doors that no man can open…He can strengthen you. He can help you. And, HE will uphold you with His own Hand of righteousness. You may not know which way to go or which way to turn, but GOD DOES.

Today put your complete and total trust in GOD through His son, Jesus Christ. Fall on your knees in prayer asking HIM to show you the way and to give you the HOPE you need to face each and every day until this season of your life is passed. No, you will not stop missing a loved one who is gone, but the pain will eventually become more bearable. No, you may not get the old job back. But, God may have a better job in store for you…No, the door of opportunity you missed may be gone, but GOD is the Great Creator (ELOHIM) who can “create” new out of HIS own limitless domain.

“Fear Not…”Trust in God today and every day. For in doing so you will find strength to face each day’s dawning knowing that GOD is on your side…And, if God be for us, who can be against us?

Remember, God Loves YOU!

In the Name of Jesus!

In the Name of Jesus!

Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. (Acts 3:6). Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12).

Right now there is a spiritual war looming in America’s future between its Judeo-Christian heritage and the infiltration of Islam. For over two centuries, America has existed, practiced, and operated between different Protestant doctrinal issues such as, “once saved always saved,” “baptism by immersion vs. sprinkling,” and the usage of “tongues” in the believer’s life. But, the one foundation that all Protestant denominations hold in common is that, “There is no salvation in any other than Jesus Christ;” whether we are completely submerged or sprinkled at baptism, whether we believe in or do not believe in once saved always saved, or if we speak in tongues or do not speak in tongues…

These doctrinal issues may separate our denominations but they do NOT separate our theology that Jesus Christ is the ONE AND ONLY way to God. But, now our Protestant theology is being challenged by many among the highest powers within our land, including our very own President. More and more Protestant Christians are being “silenced” as the teachings of Islam sweep our land. Sadly, many prominent people in America are now following a new wave of “religion” that mixes Christianity and Islam…It is called Chrislam…How truly dangerous for the minds and hearts of our people. Islam does not recognize Jesus Christ as being the Son of God nor does it recognize Jesus Christ as being God manifested in the flesh as taught in the New Testament Book of John chapter one. The doctrines and theology of Christianity and Islam cannot and should not be mixed to make a new “false religion.” And, we, the true and authentic New Testament church, must take a stand to make as many people aware of this new false religion as possible.

Protestant Christians must bind together the Biblical truths regarding Jesus Christ as being the ONLY way to Salvation and reconciliation unto God. Tell your children. Tell your neighbor. Tell your brother. Tell your sister. Tell the man across the street. Tell the woman at the supermarket. Tell your mother. Tell your father. Tell your friend. Tell your husband and tell your wife that JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth is the ONLY name under heaven given among men whereby we MUST BE SAVED!

Most of us who do study the Bible know that the spirit of the anti-Christ abounds. This terrible evil spirit will do “anything” to draw mankind away from the Name of Jesus Christ. As Christians, It is our duty to hold up the Blood-stained Banner that bears HIS NAME, JESUS, EMMANUEL, REDEEMER, SAVIOR, and GOD’S ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. This same Gospel banner has been held up by innumerable Christians since that first Easter Resurrection Morning when JESUS came forth from the grave…

Let us REJOICE that our Savior, Jesus Christ, Lives and let us REJOICE that our Savior, Jesus Christ, Reigns. Praise, Honor, and Glory are given unto the NAME OF JESUS… ”But, such as I have give I thee, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk!”

Let each one of us RISE UP AND WALK in HIS NAME! Amen…

Remember, God Loves You in the Name of Jesus!

A Measure of Greater Faith

A Measure of Greater Faith…

I believe the time is nearing when all Christians, including those living right here in America, will be challenged worldwide to grow, to develop, and to demonstrate a Greater Faith in Christ Jesus. Are we prepared? From its humble beginnings in a manger in Bethlehem Christianity has been tested and tried down throughout the centuries. Christianity itself was born of martyrdom and many a souls have given their lives for the furtherance of the Gospel; the Good News of Jesus Christ (God Saves).

For the past two hundred plus years, Christians born and living in America have experienced a sanctuary of peace and safety to openly practice our religious beliefs. But, if things continue to progress along the same lines that we are currently watching unfold our peace and safety may soon be in jeopardy. Are we prepared? What will it take for our voices to continue being heard within our own nation’s boundaries proclaiming Jesus Christ as the Messiah; God incarnated in the flesh (John 1:14), Savior of the world? What will it take to proclaim Jesus, God’s only begotten Son, as being greater than any prophet? (John 3:16-17). Are we prepared?

So far in America, our faith in Jesus Christ has not been challenged, tested, and threatened with imprisonment, open persecution, or possible death. Yes, as individuals we may have suffered loss of friendships, relationships, jobs, or other opportunities because of our personal Faith and stand on Christian principles, but as a nation we have been blessed to openly declare our religious beliefs without fear. But, that may not always be the case. Are we prepared?

I believe now is the time to start praying asking God to grant us, as a once thriving Protestant nation, a “measure of Greater Faith” that we may be able to withstand and resist the persecutions that may very well be heading our way in the very near future. I believe now is the time to openly discuss these future possibilities with our children and grandchildren. I believe we can no longer keep our heads buried in the sand as the winds of political opposition howl around us. It is time for a Greater Faith to emerge within our hearts and lives; a time to grow, to develop, and to demonstrate a “Greater Faith” in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Let us not forget the faithful words of the Great Apostle Paul:
“According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Philippians 1:20-21 KJV)

May we, too, rise to the “Measure of Greater Faith.”

Remember, God Loves You!

Blessed is the Nation…

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.”

(Psalm 33:12)

Remember, when not too long ago we as a nation felt empowered and indivisible? We were the wealthiest and most powerful nation on Earth? Oh, how far we have fallen in such a short time. Our continued mounting ceiling debt renders us not feeling very wealthy even though most of our citizens live far above the standards of most others on planet Earth. And, our once powerful abilities to lead the world towards peace and democracy have been shattered by our current presidential administration seeking advice from another country’s president on how to get us out of a mess!…Oh, my friends these things should not be…And, the only way to turn them around is for America to once again bind together in our Faith in God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

But, sadly, we are living under an administration that promotes evil and discredits our Christian heritage…Without God, our nation will not be able to resolve its current problems and we will continue to witness its downfall. Yet, the Bible has many promises to those who hold steadfast in such times. “Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the LORD delivereth him out of them ALL.” (Psalm 34:19. ) As grim and dim as it is, we, as Christians and followers of Christ, still have HOPE. If we think about it, what better time than this to lead the lost and dying within our own nation to Christ? What better time to tell others about Jesus’ Resurrected Power to rule Supreme? Instead of focusing on all the bad, we need to start focusing on the added opportunities to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. We need to tell others about our Faith. We need to explain why Jesus is God manifested in the flesh (John 1:14) and the only NAME that will save us from our sins and reconcile us back to God. “At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is LORD!”

No longer can we just assume that people know and understand who Jesus really is…He is God…He is Redeemer…He is Savior…Yes, he was a babe born in Bethlehem over two-thousand years ago, but He is the Presence of God dwelling among us…There is NO other way to have life after death than through Faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:16).

So, this next week, instead of focusing upon all the ills and issues of our land why not take the opportunity to share your Faith in Christ? If every Christian shared his and her faith to win one soul to Christ then our nation would be returned to God’s favor as it once benefitted.

To our God be the Glory in the name of Jesus! Amen…

A Nation Divided…

And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand” (Matthew 12:25 KJV)

Whether it be a household or a nation, it cannot stand when it is divided. I fear and pray for America everyday as she continues to divide herself over political issues, values, morals, and direction. I believe it is safe to say that America has not been so deeply divided since the Civil War. True, we have always had two ruling political parties but even they found common ground in order to rule and run our nation effectively. Such is not the case now. Both political sides are in a stand-off with the American people held hostage.

I am a conservative with conservative values that I hold near and dear to my heart. I am a follower and believer in Christ Jesus and these days that makes me a target within my own nation. We, the people, are now considered either far right or far left…The once common ground of our Christian heritage no longer binds and holds us together…We are now knee-deep in a society that “does what is right in their own eyes.” Without God, a nation cannot rule without anarchy.

It is sad how conservatives are being blamed for our nation’s troubles and woes…And, the left-wing is being uplifted and praised as it boasts that man should be able to marry man and woman should be able to marry woman…Not to mention the thousands of babies who go murdered everyday without representation. We live in a land where a man or woman can be tried for cruelty to an animal, but we have no regard for human life…We are truly a nation that has gone array from far away from the teachings and principles of the Bible.

Our land was once recognized and respected by the world, but now the world pokes fun at us and laughs at our inabilities to govern effectively. Oh, how we have fallen in such a short time span…But, actually it hasn’t been so short…It’s been 51 years since our nation voted to adhere to “Separation of Church and State” which lead to “Separation of God and State.” The catalyst for our current demise.

Oh, that our nation would seek God who would then send His messenger to lead our people back to Him and to unity. How far we have fallen no ones truly knows…And, how long it will continue to fall is to be seen…But, it is my prayer that we will “fall to our knees” in repentance and restitution between God and man and God and our nation…lest we perish.

Remember, God Loves You…May we return to Him in all our ways and reunite our land…

Spiritual Awakening…

Discipline, Integrity, Intelligence, and Order…The marks of Spiritual Awakenings…

Spiritual Awakenings in our nation’s history have been described as a time that brought forth mankind’s disciplined actions, moral integrity, higher-order thinking, and civil obedience as a result of God’s intervention, restoring, and refreshing. True Spiritual Awakening is not marked by “emotion” alone, but by the inward pursuit of godly, righteous, and holy living. Who would not agree that our nation is in bad need of Spiritual Awakening? Never before in our nation’s history has our citizens greatly lacked such self-control and discipline. Society has gone wild in its pursuit of undisciplined lives and life-styles. Moral integrity is at an all time low. Politicians and government officials lie to cover lies. Our school systems and universities are failing to equip our students with enough intelligence to even “think” for themselves…And, crimes are so rampant in most towns and cities that our judicial system simply cannot keep up. America needs reviving!

The late, great Rev. Jonathan Edwards preached his famous sermon; “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” in the 1730’s that lead to America’s first sweeping Spiritual Awakening. It doesn’t take much for one to read the title to know the Power contained in the message. God’s patience does and will run out against continual, habitual sin and sinful living. It is said that those in Edwards’ congregation felt as if they were going to “slid right into hell” as he preached repentance. We don’t hear too much about “repentance” these days. Many of today’s churches are no more than tax-free country clubs where everyone “knows your name and glad you came.” We are in need of spirit-filled evangelism as Dr. Billy Graham so powerfully preached in his day and times.

Sadly, instead of hearing about repenting of our sins, we are taught how to “smile” our way through them. As one preacher stated, “People are still dying and going to hell, but they are going now with a smile on their face.” God didn’t send Jesus to die on the Cross to put a smile on our face, even though it does put Joy in our hearts. God called man everywhere to “repent,” to turn away from sinful living and unrighteousness to godly living and disciplined righteousness.

I doubt the average teenager in America can define what godly living and disciplined righteousness even means…Sadly, but they do know what it means to have a “form of godliness and denying the power thereof.” To them, smiling your way through sinful behavior appears “godly” and jumping up and down to loud rock-n-roll praise music demonstrates God’s power! Believe me when you experience God’s authentic power it typically brings you to your knees in shame and tears. Yes; America needs to be Revived, Restored, and Refreshed in God’s formula for Revival…Repentance, Prayer, Fasting, and Godly Disciplined life styles…

It is my prayer that our generation will experience such a time of refreshing in our own life time when man can once again lift up holy hands unto the Lord…Amen…

Remember, God Loves You…God Loves Mankind, but God hates sin…
