REPENT, REPENT, REPENT……..

Whatever is holding you back from Jesus Christ, REPENT of that thing! Pray to overcome that thing! Rather it be doubt, fear, sin, disbelief, etc.

Many churches and pastors today only want to talk about the LOVING part of God and seem to leave out the WRATHFUL part of God. They do this to try to attract more followers to the church no doubt, but IN doing so, the ONLY thing these churches/pastors do is send several souls STRAIGHT TO HELL.

Hell, just like heaven, is a REAL PLACE! Several people have had near-death experiences where they either saw heaven, hell or both and were able to elaborate on their experiences. (Other people, such as myself, have just had a near-death experience where they met Jesus Christ and were told about heaven, but never saw a preview of it).

“But what if someone was just saying that or making it up it for attention?” you may ask. Well, lets face it. There’s probably very few people who would lie about something like that since they don’t want to be seen as “crazy” by the rest of the general population. Think about it.

When a person says something like “I saw demons”, “Satan tried to drag me down to hell with him” or “I saw Jesus Christ”, etc., most “secular” people in this world would probably laugh it off and take that person for a “crazy kook”. So why would someone WANT to risk their reputation, their job and/or their livelihood over something that “wasn’t true” and that would have the potential to “destroy” their reputation and their life in this world?

On the other hand…….if someone has TRULY had a life-changing spiritual experience and they simply KNOW that that experience came from none other than the Lord God Jesus Christ himself, they are NOT going to care what people think. Because they’ve been spiritually reborn again and changed on the inside and are going to go out and tell everyone and anyone who’ll listen. Not for attention…….but to try to save as many souls as possible.

But one thing is certain. As I look around at all the chaous in this world, it has become very clear to me that we do NOT have alot of time left in this world. We MUST get right with Jesus Christ, we MUST repent of and give up our sins and we MUST do all the things that the Lord Jesus Christ wants us to do like “write a letter of apology to this person”, “go witness to THAT person” etc.

REPENT of sin means to GIVE UP your sin. In other words, if you drink alot, stop drinking. If you’ve done something to hurt someone, apologize immediately and don’t wait. If you’ve put off doing something for the Lord that the Lord has specifically requested that you do (such as “go witness to this individual about me”, “go donate your extra food to the local food drive”, etc.), DO THAT THING (whatever it is) without hesitation and don’t wait….don’t wait unless the Lord TELLS you to wait…..Because remember that anything we do outside of the Lord will NOT prosper……

The teaching “Once Saved, Always Saved” is a FALSE TEACHING!!!!!!! It was one invented by “secular-minded pastors” who wanted to increase their profit margins (and brought forth by Satan, who wanted to blind as many people as he possibly could, from the truth). Cause lets face it, NOBODY likes to hear bad things about themselves, right? “You’re a sinner”. It’s human nature to want to hear GOOD things about ourselves. “You’re so great, we’re so great, everybody’s so great”. But again, the “Once Saved, Always Saved” teaching is a teaching that’ll send people STRAIGHT TO HELL.

Jesus Christ said in John 14:15 in the New Testament “if you love me, you’ll obey my commandments”. He also said in Matthew 7:21 in the New Testament “not everyone who says to me ‘Lord, Lord’ will enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father in heaven”. Those are some pretty powerful words right there! So in other words, merely believing in Jesus Christ is NOT enough, you must ALSO do what Jesus Christ says in the bible and beyond or the kingdom of heaven (New Jerusalem/Eternal Paradise) will be forfeited from you!

Romans 3:23 says “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. So guess what, folks? We’re NOT great…….We’re NOT “all that”. We’re all sinners…….and we all need Jesus Christ in order to be forgiven of our sins. It’s just that simple. There can be NO salvation outside of Jesus Christ. For he is the divine judge of ALL.

One of these days, Jesus Christ is going to return to the Earth to judge each and every SINGLE person that has ever lived on this Earth. What will YOU say before God Almighty on that day? “I’m sorry Lord, my sin was just too important to me at the time! Please don’t condemn me & send me to the eternal flames!” By then, it’ll be too late and your eternal fate will be sealed. FOR ETERNITY.

“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things that were written in the books, according to their works” Revelation 20:12

“And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead that were in them: and they were judged every man, according to their works” Revelation 20:13

“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death”. Revelation 20:14

“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” Revelation 20:15

Please, I beg of you. If you’ve strayed from Jesus Christ lately and have become a wayward Christian, please REPENT and come back to Jesus Christ A.S.A.P. before it’s too late and your eternal fate is sealed for eternity!

And if you are NOT a believer in Jesus Christ or don’t know enough ABOUT him, then PLEASE pray to believe and/or get to know Jesus Christ, TODAY!

Time is of the essence.

Every second of your LIFE spent without Jesus Christ is one step closer to hell for you, my friend. Please open up your eyes and see, before it’s too late and your eternal fate is sealed for ALL ETERNITY!

We never know when we’re going to die.

You could die in a car wreck tomorrow or natural disaster. You might even die before you finish reading this sentence, even. Even if you’re young and in perfectly good health.

Perfectly healthy people have been known to die of instantaneous heart attacks before.

But again, I don’t say this to scare you but to WARN YOU!

Please don’t die without Jesus Christ! Get to know Jesus Christ, TODAY!

Just pray this simple prayer : “Lord, please reveal yourself to me” and mean the prayer with ALL your heart, ALL your soul and ALL your mind and he will reveal himself to you through the bible, visions, dreams, etc.

But you must mean the prayer with all your heart, soul and MIND. You must give it everything you got, when you pray. Put your whole entire “being” into the prayer….

Because Jesus Christ will NOT answer half-hearted prayers…..which is WHY you must mean the prayer with your mind, heart, body and spirit.

And then, after the Lord Jesus makes himself known to you, pray for forgiveness of your sins, REPENT (that means, give up your sins such as drinking, gambling, lust, etc), get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, obey Jesus’s commandments in the bible (such as 10 commandments, Sermon on the Mount teachings in Matthew chapter 5-7, partaking in the TRUE/BIBLICAL 7TH DAY SATURDAY SABBATH & the Lord’s TRUE holidays outlined in Leviticus 23 in the Old Testament and even in certain spots in the NEW TESTAMENT, etc.), preach the gospel to others and have FAITH in Jesus Christ and TRUST HIM to carry you through the rest of your days no matter what and you WILL be saved! You won’t have to question! You will simply KNOW for 100% sure that you are saved and assured an eternal spot someday in Jesus Christ’s “new Earth” if you do all those things!

May the Lord Jesus open up your eyes, mind and heart today to his heavenly truths and UNBLIND the people who (up until this point) have been spiritually blind. Amen.

The Day I Met Jesus Christ: My Near-Death Experience

It was a hot summer day during the summer of 81′. I was around 22 months old or so. I was in the swimming pool one day and kept looking to two of my relatives: “look at ME!”, “look at ME!”, I said, as I tried to flap my arms around and swim (even WITH a life jacket on!) But after about the 6th time or so, my relatives were too engrossed in a newspaper article and weren’t looking over anymore. And just around that time, I felt a sudden urge to look up at the sky, straight INTO the sun. Almost as if something was telling me to. I can’t explain it. So I did.

And when I looked up, I saw this really, really, REALLY bright white light expanding outward of where the sun “should’ve been”. It was SO bright, I had to look away for a few seconds and readjust my eyes. When I looked back up a 2nd time, being really, really curious as to what this “white light” was, I saw this “being” dressed in white, VERY, VERY SLOWLY floating down/descending out of the clouds in the sky (in sitting position……as though he were seated on an invisible chair of sorts) and coming down towards me.

He smiled at me and waved, so I waved back at him, then went back to what I was doing earlier, trying to get the attention of my relatives. But they were STILL engrossed in the newspaper article at this point in time, so I decided I was going to try to impress them by learning to swim on my own.

I unsnapped my life jacket and unhooked the floating devices on my arms. I knew that I needed to flap around my arms and legs a bit to swim but that’s about all I knew about swimming at that point. And almost AS SOON AS I unhooked my life jacket and unplugged the floating devices on my arms, I quickly sunk under the water and wasn’t able to “flail” my way back up to the top of the surface of the water.

And as I was sinking further and further down, I felt my chest, nose, lungs, head feel like they were going to EXPLODE and then eventually feeling very light-headed & numb everywhere immediately afterwards…..Darkness…..darkness all around me. I didn’t feel the sensation of my body or the water. I didn’t feel, see, sense, or hear anything. Nothing. I PANICKED! I then cried out into the dark abyss something along the lines of “Help! I’m scared! Somebody! Anybody! HELP ME!” and just then, I looked up and saw a small square of light.

I looked toward the direction of the square of light and heard a man’s voice on the middle left-hand side of the bottom side of the pool. I then looked towards the direction of where the voice was coming from and saw this young man (that looked about the age of 25) at the left-hand bottom side of the pool floor with black hair and brown eyes who said he was my guardian angel. He then started beckoning me towards him. So I slowly walked up to him (still being completely underneath the water at this time, walking across the bottom of the pool floor).

He then said I had to go back up to the surface of the water to go talk to “the being in white”. I said to him “being?” So he tried to explain “the man in white”. I said “but I don’t WANT to go talk to the man in white, I want to stay here with YOU!” He said “you CAN’T stay here with me little one, not until it’s time for you to die and that won’t be for a very long time!” But he saw the look of hesitation on my face, so he tried to reassure me saying “don’t worry, little one, he is a nice man, an honorable man, a holy man. He created all things, including YOU. But you must speak to him now at once, he’s waiting!”

So my “guardian angel” hoisted me up on the surface of the water and the next thing I remember was that I was walking over the top of the surface of the water. And the sound of the water sounded really, really “weird”, like, distant and far away but still there (very similar to how the “ocean waves” sound in the original Legend of Zelda NES game). I tried to jump on the water and “go under” again, only I couldn’t.

“Wheeeee” I said, as I frolicked on the water. I cried out and said to my relatives: “hey, look at me! look at me! I’m walking across the water! lookie!” but they couldn’t hear or see me for some reason. And then I heard this mighty, loud laugh that shook the waters, which made me startle back in fright! I then heard this loud, booming voice that said “CHILD, HOME HERE!”.

I looked up and saw a big bearded man/spiritual being with a white rainment sitting on the pool steps at the shallow end of the pool [much similar looking to the man/spiritual being descending down out of the sky that I had seen earlier]. He kind’ve looked like one of my uncles, only I KNEW he wasn’t my uncle. I was scared. But the “man in white” promised me that if I didn’t like what he had to say, he’d leave me alone forever and I’d never have to see him again. So I slowly and hesitantly came closer to him and he sat me on his lap & splashed water on me and made me giggle! I liked him INSTANTLY!

I asked him his name. He said his name was Jesus and that he was sent down from heaven to save me. I told him “well, thank-you for saving me from the water and all but I really shouldn’t be talking to you, anymore”. He asked “why is that, little one?” I responded “my mommy told me to NEVER talk to strangers!”

He laughed so hard, the water and part of the Earth shook when he laughed. He then turned to me and gently asked “Do I look like a stranger to YOU? Can strangers come down out of the sky from the clouds of heaven and wave to you in mid-air and do strangers have the ability to shake the Earth and the waters by just the mere sound of their voice or laughter?” I shook my head and said “no”. He asked again “do you now believe that I am who I say I am?” to which I nodded my head and said “uh huh”.

He then told me to dunk myself completely under the water for a minute and then come back up to the surface of the water. So I did as I was told (please remember that moments earlier, BEFORE the “being in white” came to sit at the pool steps in the shallow end of the pool, I was unable to go underneath the surface of the water again by myself). When I came back up to the surface of the water, I felt this most amazing feeling……indescribable….. inner peace, healing and joy…..

and the “being in white” said to me: “now you are baptized in my great, heavenly name and the spirit of truth shall come upon you”. I didn’t quite understand what he meant by all that and immediately asked if he wanted me to dunk myself under the water again but he just smiled and said “no, once is good enough, now come back up and sit on my lap again, little one!” So again, I did as I was told. I trusted this “heavenly being” COMPLETELY with all my heart! 

“How OLD are you? I asked. “33” he said. “3…3?” I asked. “33” he said again. “3 – “eeee” ?” I asked. “No….33” he said once more. “3-3?” I asked again. “No, 33” he said again, holding up both his fingered hands 3 times, plus 3 fingers. “Wow, that’s really old”, I said. I then asked “Who are you? Who are you REALLY?” to which Jesus answered “why…I’m the Son of the one who made you”. I looked him over up and down 2 times and with a totally confused/perplexed look said “but you’re much too OLD to be my brother!?” and he started laughing hysterically and holding his stomach as the waters and Earth shook.

I then looked over at him once the laughing had subsided and noticed he had a couple of weird “holes” by his hands and feet. “What happened?” I asked, afraid, as I gingerly poked my finger through the “hole” in one of his hands. “I was pierced”, he said. “What’s pierced?” I asked, and as he tried to explain to me what “pierced” meant, I looked over and saw myself laying face-down on the water.

“Hey!!!!!! There’s TWO of me!!!!! There’s….ME (pointing towards my face-down body on the surface of the water), and….ME!! (pointing to myself). Hey…..how come there’s TWO of me?”. He tried to explain the difference just then between the body and the spirit, only I was too young to understand completely what he meant. “But how can there be TWO of me at the same time? That makes no sense to me!? “Child” he laughed, “you have a dizzying intellect!”.

He then talked about this “happy place” where there was no tears and only happiness and children laughing and playing all the time. He offered to take me to such a place and said I could become a “child angel” (there’s a certain word for them that he called them but I forgot). And quite frankly, I liked the idea of such a place. In fact, it even SOUNDED like just my type of place. He then added “but you’ll have to leave them [my living relatives] behind, plus you won’t be able to come back here ever again, little one”.

And just then, I looked over at a couple of my relatives. Even though I couldn’t stand the thought of leaving them behind, I really liked the idea of this “happy place” and was just about to agree to go with him when suddenly, he informed me that two of my relatives and many others out there in the world were headed on a path to darkness and that UNLESS someone tried to help save them and bring them back to the light, they would be “judged accordingly, at the End of Days”. And well, I loved my relatives. And I knew how awful it would be for ANY HUMAN BEING to be on the BAD SIDE of this *UNIQUE being*…….this person who calls himself Jesus who has the ability to make the Earth and waters shake at the mere sound of his voice……

So I thought for a bit and I said “hey Jesus……*I* can come back and try to help save some of those people, if you want! How can I be happy going to a happy place, when I know that some people are gonna be sad and go to a sad place?”. Jesus asked “even if you must be sad for awhile, in the process of trying to help save others? Even if people cruelly tease you someday, due to my name and other things? Even if the sad people headed to the sad place try to argue with you, all along the way? Even amongst much clamour and opposition?”

I said to Jesus “I would feel sad getting to go to a happy place while other people are sad in a sad place. Please let me help those people for you, Jesus. I want ALL people to be happy and go to the happy place, and not the sad place”.

Just then, Jesus’s eyes grew moistened and he said to me “your heart is pure, little one!” He then looked over at them and yelled “PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR DAUGHTER!” and that’s when they looked over and saw my lifeless body face down, arms spread out to either side on the water. [3 seconds of time in the living world is like around 30-33 minutes or so of time in the spirit world, just to specify. They had only looked away for a few seconds, approximately…it all happened so fast, see?]. One of them pulled me up out of the water and layed me down on the pavement on the side of the pool. Jesus then told me to “lay back down into my body, as if I were taking a nap or going to sleep”.

But I didn’t want Jesus to leave. I said “but Jesus……I don’t WANT you to go……we were just starting to be friends!” Jesus said to me “I’ll ALWAYS be your friend….and I’ll ALWAYS be with you……all I ask is that you remember me and serve me all the days of your life! And I’ll come back to get you someday. Until then, I need you to be strong and brave, little one! And abide in me, always! And as long as you remember me, I’ll NEVER leave you and I’ll NEVER forsake you! Just trust me!” and without another word, my soul was back in my body and pain shot all throughout my body. My chest, head, nose and lungs hurt like YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE and I started immediately coughing up water……ALOT of water…..I was coughing up SO much water, that I thought I was dying again for a moment there…….

And as soon as I completely came to, I asked “where’s the being in white? where’s the man in white? He was just here a second ago! He looked like uncle ——, only, he wasn’t uncle ——–! He said his name was Gee-gee….??”

“Jesus?” one of my relatives asked. “Yes, Jesus! That’s it! That’s what he said his name was!” I said.

“It’s a MIRACLE!” my relative said, eyes looking upward towards the sky.

So that’s the story of how I came to know of Jesus Christ. I had NO previous knowledge of him prior to this whole experience. It’s how I came to know OF him, who he is, what he did, etc.

Not long after my N.D.E., one of my relatives purchased me a children’s illustrated bible and taught me all about Jesus Christ (the parts about Jesus Christ & his history that hadn’t yet been revealed to me during the near-death experience) and as I read about Jesus in the pages of the bible, I just have to cry tears of joy as I think to myself “oh my gosh, that is THE JESUS that came down from heaven to save me! THE JESUS that splashed water on me & sat me in his lap! THE JESUS that brought me back to life!”

And I feel forever blessed & amazed that Jesus Christ chose to save ME. I mean, he could’ve just let me die and stay forever dead if he had wanted to. But he didn’t. I feel so blessed. That was simply the most GREATEST moment of my ENTIRE LIFE! Nothing eclipses the moment I met Jesus Christ in person. NOTHING.

But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven” [Matthew 19:14]

Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven” [Matthew 18:1o]

The Power Of Starting Over On A Fresh, Clean Slate….

We’ve all said and done things in our lives that we regret and that we possibly hate ourselves for, looking back…..things in our lives that we wish we NEVER would’ve said or done or that we should’ve done DIFFERENTLY.

Well, with Jesus Christ, we CAN start all over and we CAN have our slate wiped clean and start a new life.

But first, we must have an INTERNAL change within our mind, heart, body and spirit. We have to regret all our misdeeds/”sins” in our life SO MUCH that we’re willing to do almost anything to change them.

What’s sin? Sin is transgression of the law (of God). Ever stolen anything? Ever lusted after a woman (men) or a man (ladies) that you weren’t married to? Ever told a lie? Said the Lord’s name in vain? That makes you a thief, an adulterer, a liar and a blasphemer and that’s just FOUR of the 10 commandments!

But that is where Jesus Christ comes in. The prophesied Jewish Messiah talked about in the Old Testament and the only true begotten Son of God, HE gave his very own LIFE during the crucifixion & shed his very own holy blood, just SO mankind could be FORGIVEN for their sins AND assured a spot in Eternal NEW JERUSALEM someday! And there is NO greater love than that, people!

Jesus Christ loves us all SO MUCH, that he was more than willing to DIE for us on the cross, just so WE could be forgiven of our sins and just so WE could have a way to spend ETERNITY WITH GOD IN NEW JERUSALEM someday. And so again, there is NO greater love than that!

3 days later after Jesus Christ was crucified, he rose from the dead (just like he told his disciples he would). [Google the “Shroud of Turin”] And 40 days after that, Jesus Christ (in front of the apostles and others) ascended back up to heaven to be on the right hand throne of God, the heavenly Father. But don’t just take MY word for it. See for yourselves!

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

Jesus Christ was God in the flesh and he proved it…..not only in the bible and to his disciples and various non-Christian crowds after he rose from the dead just 3 days later after he died on the cross, but to myself as well (during a near-death experience).

The thing about Jesus Christ is that he doesn’t care WHO you are or WHAT you’ve done so far in your life. You CAN be forgiven for all your sins, just like you CAN start over a brand new life in him!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a stripper, bank robber, homeless, a drug addicted person, a practicing homosexual. No sin is too bad to be forgiven of, save for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit: (many bible scholars believe that blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is to claim that Jesus Christ got his power from Satan but it can also likely mean several other things, too, such as not believing that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and DYING in that sin of unbelief, etc.)

Jesus Christ can take what is UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and turn it around and make that person CLEAN by teaching that person how to OVERCOME their unrighteousness and become a righteous person in his heavenly site! Jesus Christ can set a person FREE from their sins and their failures and their addictions.

Whatever you’re going through in life, Jesus Christ has a solution and an answer. But you got to TRUST JESUS CHRIST to change your life. But you must TRUST HIM. Meaning that you must first of all BELIEVE that Jesus Christ IS the only begotten Son of God AND that he died for your sins AND that he has the power to change you from within. And once you believe in the power of the Lord and pray for the Lord Jesus Christ to change you, he will change you. He will also give you the gift of the Holy Spirit (the spirit of truth/spirit of spiritual discernment that will let you know what things are truly of God and what things are NOT of God).

And as soon as you fully believe in the Lord Jesus Christ beyond ALL reasonable doubt, you must get immediately baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the ceremonial “washing away of sins”. You don’t have to do it publicly or by a priest. You can do it in a swimming pool, river, lake or your very own bathtub filled with water (because remember that it must be a FULL IMMERSION baptism, according to the bible and NOT a “sprinkling”).

You must then also (to the very best of your ability) obey all of Jesus’s commandments in the bible (including the 10 commandments, the 7th-Day biblical Sabbath (because remember that the “Sunday Sabbath” seen today is NOT biblical at all), the 7 holy feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.), Sermon on the Mount, etc.) and preach the gospel to others to everyone/anyone who’ll listen.

Many Christians today think that the 7th-Day Sabbath was done away with and also that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts were done away with the New Testament as well. But did you know that Jesus Christ and his disciples NOT ONLY participated in the 7th-Day Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) but also in the 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.) as well? [Some bible scholars even suggest he ALSO participated in the 2 “Minor” Jewish Feasts (Purim & Festival of Lights/Hanukah).

Yeshua/Jesus Christ Himself even said in Matthew 5:17-18 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law & the prophets. For I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”. And we know this won’t happen (the first heaven and Earth passing away, that is) until Revelation, chapter 21:1-2! 

But upon believing in and getting baptized in the name of Yeshua/Jesus Christ, you will become a new creature in the Lord and start a NEW LIFE in him! Everything you’ve done in your life so far will not matter, anymore. The only thing that’ll matter from the MOMENT you become saved in Yeshua/Jesus Christ to the moment you die in this life is where you stand with Yeshua/Jesus Christ. And where you stand with Jesus Christ is determined by how you LIVE for Jesus Christ….

For example, do you believe in Jesus Christ? Have you accepted him as Lord & Savior? Have you prayed for forgiveness of your sins? Have you given up your sins and stopped doing them? Have you become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ? Do you witness about Jesus Christ and Salvation to others? Do you do all the things that the Lord Jesus Christ tells you to do (such as obey the 10 commandments and Sermon on the Mount teachings in Matthew5-7 as well as several OTHER New Testament commands? Some possible examples (depending on what the Lord needs from you at the time) might be things like “write a letter of apology to this person, go witness to that person, give the coat off your back to that homeless person over there, donate your leftover food to the food bin”, etc.

Are you in that place in your life where, if you were to die today or tonight, you’d know for 100% sure beyond all reasonable doubt that you’d go to eternal NEW JERUSALEM someday and not the fires of hell? If you are NOT 100% sure, then it’s time for you to examine yourself and your life and pray to the Lord Jesus Christ to reveal to you about anything that’s holding you back from him. Cause lets face it…..5 minutes of sin is not worth eternal condemnation in the fire (“flames of torment”).

One of these days, the Earth and everything in it is gonna pass away someday (including all the material things and wealth). The Lord said in Isaiah 65:17 “Behold, I create a new heavens and a new Earth”.

And all of mankind will be judged for their actions (rather good or bad) by Jesus Christ. Will YOU stand before the Lord Jesus Christ someday on the Day of Judgment upon the Earth and say to him “I’m sorry Lord…during my Earthly life,  my sin was MUCH more important to me than YOU, I don’t want to go to eternal punishment in the “fire that never quenches” now, please forgive me?”

That won’t fly with the Lord Jesus Christ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Lord Jesus Christ gives people many, many, MANY chances throughout their lifetimes to change their lives around and to hear the message of the gospel/be saved from their sins! And so IF by the end of a person’s life, a person hasn’t accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord & Savior/asked Jesus Christ for forgiveness of their sins with a “righteous repentance” in their mind, heart, body and spirit, that is NOT God’s fault!

Now that begs of question. If people know AHEAD OF TIME that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to New Jerusalem, the ONLY one true God, and the ONLY way to have forgiveness of sins and the ONLY way to be spared from God’s eternal wrath in the fire, why do they still choose to reject him? Why do they STILL choose to go to “eternal condemnation” even when they know that the place of eternal condemnation is going to be an awful, torturous, gruesome place FOR ETERNITY? Do they REALLY think that Jesus Christ will spare THEM just because they donated to charity, or never killed anyone and that sort’ve thing?

Do they REALLY think that Jesus Christ is a “unrepentant-sin-accepting” type of God? And/or that he’s the type of God to be “sweet-talked” to or to let sin go UNPUNISHED? THINK AGAIN, PEOPLE! Jesus Christ is a righteous, holy, and PURE God! And he lets NO sin into NEW JERUSALEM/the eternal kingdom. None. A person’s “good deeds” or money or good looks will NOT save them from the holy, divine wrath of God!

Yet, many people out there think: “well, Jesus Christ is such a holy, righteous God, there’s NO WAY he’d accept me!” Again, wrong….Jesus Christ will save and accept ANYONE who truly calls upon his name, prays for forgiveness of their sins, repents of their sins, gets baptized in his heavenly name, preaches the gospel to others, obey his commandments in the bible, trusts him & truly abides in him by the way they LIVE for him.

I got a short parable for you. Luke 18:9-14: And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted”. 

The tax collector was justified before God/Jesus and NOT the Pharisee. Why? Because not only did the tax collector have the faith and desire for Jesus in his life, but he TRUSTED Jesus Christ to change him from within and cleanse his spirit and his ways. The Pharisee just basically bragged about how “holy” he was and lacked a true spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ. The Pharisee became one of those in the group of people which Jesus says: “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” – [Matthew 7:22-23]

But to the tax collector and all repentant sinners, Jesus Christ will say: “His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” – [Matthew 25:21]

But basically, it doesn’t matter what you’ve done so far in your life. It doesn’t matter if you’ve robbed 5 banks or 75. It doesn’t matter if you’re currently addicted to drugs or alcohol. It doesn’t matter if you’re a stripper or a drug lord. Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross for ALL of mankind’s sins! And no sin is too great for the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive, save for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit! He can take what is UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and help change them into a RIGHTEOUS PERSON! 

Jesus Christ will save ANYONE who truly calls upon his name from the depths of their being. No prayer will go unanswered for those who really, truly pray to get to know Jesus Christ and that means the prayer from the depths of their spirit!

But if you want to get to know Jesus Christ and have him save you FROM YOUR SINS and help you overcome your sins and your addictions, you must pray for Jesus Christ to save you and you must do so, NOW! (And believe the prayer with your whole entire mind, heart, and spirit). Every SECOND of your life spent without Jesus Christ leads you one step closer to hell and/or eternal condemnation. And like I said, death comes to us all. We NEVER know when we’re gonna die. All those who die without Jesus Christ in their lives go to eternal condemnation in the flames for eternity. So please don’t be one of those people, folks!

If you’re an atheist/agnostic that’s having trouble believing in Jesus Christ or God or the concept of a God, then I would ask you to PRAY to believe (but mean the prayer 100% in your heart) and also check out the following website that lists SEVERAL ancient historical non-Christian sources which confirm Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection and consequent ascension to heaven.

And again, I pray that each and every soul who reads this will become saved from their sins in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ before it’s too late. Amen.

This Nation Has Turned Its Back on God Almighty….

This nation has now turned its back on God Almighty. And now our nation is being cursed because of this fact.

[Update: Dec 2013] Here are just a few, sad examples of some of the things going on in today’s world:

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2008/apr/08/australia

And have you ever stopped to wonder about the following bible passage which reads: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” [2 Timothy 4:3-4]? One of those “LIES/fables” (for “cultural itching ears” is “political correctness”!

A Muslim “extremist” carried out a massacre on our own American soil at Ft. Hood and people don’t even blink an eye. And the sad & brutal reality is that he KILLED AMERICAN SOLDIERS ON AMERICAN SOIL while shouting “Allah Akbar!”…..Sadly, the only thing our politically correct/liberal media here in the U.S. wants to do is to paint HIM as “the victim”….while painting OUR own U.S. soldiers who were killed as the “perpetrators”…..What is wrong with the world today? It now seems as though politically correct/liberal media is now putting everything “backwards”……substituting good for evil and evil for good. Or is it just me?

Well, believe it or not, it’s the False Doctrines of “Politically Correct” and “Once Saved, Always Saved” that will slowly destroy this nation and this world…..Don’t believe me? Look how far down this nation & this world has fallen already, due to “political correctness”, both on a political/social level AND on a “religious level”. For example, most in today’s modern-day American society would probably say that it’s “politically incorrect” to say to people that they must obey the 10 commandments and New Testament teachings in order to obtain eternal life with Jesus Christ someday.

But the brutal reality is that, according to Matthew 7:13-14 [book of Matthew, chapter 7, verses 13-14], Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it”.

In other words, VERY FEW people are gonna enter into eternal life with Jesus Christ someday but yet, many, many, MANY people will take the “popular way” out by NOT following Jesus Christ and his commandments in the bible and go to everlasting condemnation.

It’s also ironic how the media & popular culture doesn’t DARE go against Islam, Mormonism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism due to *political correctness*, yet, doesn’t even hesitate a single moment to go against true, bible-following Christians!

But hey, that’s just the tip of the iceberg! What about the “Modern Sodomite” performance at the American Music Awards in which a young man placed other men’s heads in his crotch and kissed a male keyboarder for a prolonged time on national live TV, the fact that the Lutheran Church of America now accepts sexually-active homosexual members to be *ordained clergy* or that some schools in this country (such as CA) ruled against the PARENTS who didn’t want their elementary school kid(s) to be subjected to a “pro-homosexual agenda” in the school? Or people suing one another for the most frivolous of reasons?

“Politically Correct” has gone WAY TOO FAR in this country and it’ll only get worse, people!

And what’s sad about that whole spiel is that the bible says in Genesis 12:3 the following: “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the Earth be blessed.”

So what does that mean in plain English, some of you may ask? It basically means that God Almighty will bless the nations that bless Jesus Christ (the BIBLICAL “Jewish” Jesus Christ – the one true seed of Abraham) and curse those nations who “curse/persecute” the BIBLICAL (true seed of Abraham) Jesus Christ! Therefore, in light of that passage, it’s pretty scary that this here U.S. country is now starting to go “anti-bible” in its political sentiments. Every now and then, our U.S. leaders will do something that “seems” to be pro-bible to try to fool some people into thinking it DOESN’T hate the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ. But truthfully, we now have one of the most open anti-bible administrations we’ve ever had so far (that I’m aware of).

People, we are living in the last days. The days that the Bible spoke about long, long ago. We’re on the close verge of WWIII, the Euphrates River is beginning to dry up (Revelation 16:12, http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/14/world/middleeast/14euphrates.html), and a One World Government is now in the slow process of being set up (Lisbon Treaty, Copenhagen Treaty, Daniel chapter 7 in Old Testament, Revelation chapter 13 and 17 in New Testament, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMe5dOgbu40).

Instead of putting your faith, love and trust into the WORLD (which by the way, will soon pass away someday), put your faith, trust and love into God Almighty (Jesus Christ) instead! Why settle for “temporary security” in an “unstable world” that’ll soon pass away someday when you can have ETERNAL SECURITY in the kingdom of God that will NEVER PASS AWAY?????????????

Please look at Revelation 20:15 in the New Testament to find out what happens to people who put their faith, love and trust into the WORLD and MATERIAL THINGS instead of putting their faith, love and trust into Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ONLY! For Revelation 20:15 says “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”.

P.S.: As Christians, we all need to diligently pray for all of those folks out there who haven’t yet come to faith and love in Jesus Christ (including gov’t leaders, celebrities, friends/family, etc.). Don’t think your prayers won’t be effective. Many a scientist, Satanist, Muslim, Orthodox Jew, Atheist, Skeptic, etc. have come to faith in Jesus Christ through the daily, diligent prayers of believers! Remember: With the Lord, ALL things are possible. May the Lord God Be With You All, During These Here End Times. Amen.

Prophecy of End Times in 80’s Music Song?

It wasn’t until most recently that I began to re-examine this song called “Silent Running” by Mike & the Mechanics from the 80s (1985 to be exact). When you look at the lyrics and listen to the words, they seem to hint at a future war-like state (possibly of the whole entire world). And this goes hand in hand with bible prophecy.

NOTE: For more info, please see my more detailed post on the subject, which breaks down each part of the song and music video and talks about the prophetic significance of each:

Take the children and yourself
And hide out in the cellar
By now the fighting will be close at hand
Don’t believe the church and state
And everything they tell you
Believe IN me, I’m with the high command

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

There’s a gun and ammunition
Just inside the doorway
Use it only in emergency
Better you should pray to God [Jesus Christ?]
The Father and the Spirit
Will guide you and protect from up here [heaven?]

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Swear allegiance to the flag
Whatever flag they offer
Never hint at what you really feel
Teach the children quietly
For some day sons and daughters
Will rise up and fight while we stood still

Can you hear me, [Jesus Christ?] can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me running (can you hear me calling you?)
(Can you hear me) hear me calling you?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running babe [child of God?]
(Can you hear me running) hear me running?
Calling you, calling you

The Frailty of Life: Our Eternal Destiny

Life is short. One never really knows what day or hour one is going to die. Death is something that comes to us all. With the most recent deaths of not only Michael Jackson, age 50, but also of Billy Mays (the Oxi-clean guy) who’s ALSO age 50, it only serves to remind me about how short life is and how we have to be grateful for every moment of life that we have.

Looking back, as a Christian, I wish I would’ve prayed more for Michael Jackson and Billy Mays to believe and call upon the name of Jesus. Their respective fates are now sealed for eternity (be it eternal life in Paradise with Jesus Christ or eternal condemnation in the “fire that never quenches”) and there’s no turning back. Many people say that Jesus Christ won’t send people to hell and/or eternal condemnation in the lake of fire and/or that Jesus Christ isn’t the ONLY way to eternal life/salvation. But they are wrong. For it CLEARLY states in the bible in John 14:6 [gospel of John, chapter 14, verse 6] “I [Jesus Christ] am the way, the truth, and the light. No-one comes to the father [eternal life/salvation] except by me [Jesus Christ].”

So really, it’s that simple. All one has to do to have eternal life is to BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ with all their hearts, souls and minds and that he died on the cross over 1976+ years ago to save mankind from sin, that he rose from the dead 3 days later (bible passages and even NON-Christian historical accounts prove this), that he ascended back up to heaven just 40 days later to be on the right hand throne of God Almighty and to ask the Lord Jesus to forgive them of their sins, get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, repent [stop doing] of their sins, and CONTINUE to follow the commands of Jesus Christ [the 10 commandments, the Sermon the Mount teachings in Matthew chapters 5 to 7, + ALL new Testament teachings) until their dying day and they’re SAVED and assured a permanent spot in eternal paradise. It’s that simple.

It’s SO easy and SO simple that people often overlook it and think there’s some type of hidden catch….that they have to go to church every Sunday or be a nun in a convent…… But alas, there’s no hidden catch. That’s just it. God reaches out to ANYBODY and EVERYBODY who will listen. It doesn’t matter WHAT a person has done in their life up to that point; they can STILL be saved in the name of Jesus Christ! [And please keep in mind, it’s NOT going to church every week that saves a person’s soul, it’s the Lord Jesus Christ HIMSELF that saves a person’s soul and the only soul that is truly saved in Jesus Christ’s name is a soul who FOLLOWS and OBEYS Jesus’s commandments in the bible and TRUSTS him, no matter what!]

All people who have ever lived on the Earth will someday face the Judgment Seat of God/Jesus Christ. And as each person stands before God/Jesus Christ and is forced to give a full account of their lives, what will they say? If the Lord Jesus Christ were to ask them “why should I let you live with me in eternal Paradise?”, how would they respond?

For those who die without giving their hearts & lives to Jesus, the Judgment Seat of God/Jesus Christ will be terrifying. But for those who put their faith, trust and love in Jesus Christ, the Judgment Seat of God/Jesus Christ will be glorious, as they shall receive eternal rewards in Paradise.

Some people may say that it’s “cruel” for such a “loving” God to send people to hell and/or eternal condemnation in the lake of fire for not believing in him. But truth be told, the Lord Jesus Christ gives people many, many, MANY chances, miracles and circumstances throughout one’s lifetime to come to a saving knowledge of him; even sending some people back to life after dying, in order to give certain people a 2nd chance to believe in him & serve him all the days of one’s life. [But who’s to say that you’ll be one of the “2nd chancers” after you die? You DON’T know that…..Jesus may just decide to send you on to hell, without giving you a 2nd chance on Earth first…..SO BEWARE! Don’t say I didn’t warn you].

So IF, after giving the sacrificial form of himself in human form [Jesus Christ] over 1976+ years ago as a “payment” for people’s sins, and IF after giving people many, many, MANY chances to believe in him, a person still chooses NOT to believe, then that is NOT Jesus Christ’s fault, (as Jesus Christ tried millions of times to get through to that particular person, right?) as Jesus Christ is a righteous judge and righteous God. He tried to save that person but that person REFUSED to listen or be saved.

Then again, God is not this hateful/wrathful God that people try to make him out to be. He’s a just and loving God. That’s WHY he gives so many chances, miracles and circumstances in people’s lives for them to come to a saving knowledge of him. Some people ask “well, if Jesus already payed the price for my sins, why should I have to worry about going to hell and/or eternal condemnation in the ‘lake of fire’?” Well, Jesus Christ IS a loving, forgiving God to be sure. But he’s also a holy, divine, RIGHTEOUS God. At times, he is also a God of WRATH. Just like every human being has an angry side and a not angry side, so it is with God! And BECAUSE he’s so righteous, so holy, so pure, so true, he can’t let ANY unrepentant sin (spiritual uncleanliness) into Paradise, someday.

However, when we put our faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ ALONE, we receive the FREE GIFTS of eternal life and salvation. All WE have to do is pick up the free gifts and say “thank-you God, for presenting the gift of Jesus Christ to me”. Because if we don’t ever pick up our free gifts and say “thank-you”, then how can we ever receive our free gifts? Our free gifts of Salvation and eternal life…….All just for believing in Jesus Christ as Lord & savior, repenting/giving up/stop doing our sins, getting baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, following the 10 commandments and ALL teachings of Jesus Christ in the New Testament (such as Sermon the Mount teachings in Matthew chapters 5-7, etc.), spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to as many who will listen and praying for forgiveness of our sins. It’s SO simple. Yet, SO overlooked in today’s world.

I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that God will bless each and every single one of you today & open up your eyes, heart, body and spirit to his eternal truth & show you that what I’m saying is true. Amen.

God of “Many Rules”?

To many Christians (and even non-Christians alike), God can seem like a God of “many rules”. And at times, those rules can feel overwhelming to live by, to say the least. It can even seem at times that God doesn’t want anyone to have fun in life.

But think of a parent who’s trying to properly raise their child. Should they just let their child run amok and do whatever the heck they want? Ofcourse not.

So it is with God.

God is like a “loving parent” and we are like his “children”. He has to give us rules to live by, in order to sustain us and guide us in the proper way of living & for spiritual growth. Otherwise, with no rules to live by, we wouldn’t be here long, as a human race.

Remember that all of our laws are pretty much based on God’s laws. So without God’s laws to inspire our own human laws, where would we be, law-wise? That’s right. We’d have no laws. And everybody would’ve killed each other off by now. But because we have laws based off God’s laws, we are able to have some sort of “order” in the world.

Imagine if you were God and created a human race. And lets say that you valued/loved your creation very, very much but the humans decided that they’d rather disobey you, attack you and talk smack on you instead, with a constant chorus of “You suck!”, “We hate you!”, “You’re no good!” and “Screw YOU!”, etc.

You’d probably feel pretty slighted and ticked off and fed up with those darned things after awhile, huh?

But what if you decided to put YOURSELF into the form of a human and took it upon yourself, to show them firsthand how “pained” you felt every time they disobeyed you and talked smack on you, by allowing them to torture and kill you (for the forgiveness of their sins), but then, having the power to be resurrected just 3 days later. 

Some of the humans would say “wow” and would start to behave immediately but others would STILL continue to behave badly. And sure, you as their loving, patient, kind creator would give them LOTS of chances to repent of their disobedience. But if they didn’t? You’d have no choice but to discard them, upon their deaths and to discard them for eternity…..

For what good are they to you if they give you no reverence, whatsoeever? They had their chance, they didn’t take it, so it’s not your fault, right? You tried. And you can’t take them back OUT of the fire of condemnation because all they’re going to do is curse you and hate you even more. Plus, that also wouldn’t be fair to the humans who were “righteous” humans the whole time and/or that “became” righteous humans.

Jesus Christ not only hates sin but he hates the “effects” of sin. Jesus Christ hates severe alcoholism, drug use, gambling, materialism, lust, greed, hate, pornography, etc. because of what it does to people (physically, psychologically, spiritually, emotionally, financially….) He’s not just saying “don’t do this because I don’t like it”…He’s saying “don’t do this, because it’s not good for you, in several different ways”. As our divine creator who made all things in the universe, God the Heavenly Father wants what’s best for us. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t be God.

And once more, Jesus Christ is not a God who wants to take fun out of life (contrary to popular belief in today’s secular world). He went with his parents to celebrate the Passover (a huge, 3-day long Jewish festival) with his cousin John when he was 12, he likely had a jovial time at the wedding in Canaan (before/after turning the water into wine), plus also likely joked around sometimes with his friends/apostles. 

Not to mention that Jesus Christ has given each and every one of us a talent, gift, hobby or “calling” in life. Not only to make our lives somewhat enjoyable but also for us to use OUR gifts/talents in life to glorify HIM! For example, a person who’s a great writer…..Jesus Christ gave them that gift for a purpose so that they’d use their writing to glorify HIM! Or perhaps a person is a good painter, photographer, etc. We are to use OUR gifts/talents for Jesus Christ’s glory!

Unfortunately, some people out there decide to take it upon themselves to give THEMSELVES the glory for their “talents” instead of giving Jesus Christ the glory and that’s where they come into some major spiritual trouble and are in MOST danger of a “spiritual fall”! Because remember Proverbs 16:18 which states: “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall”

So please. I beg of you. Use your gifts for Jesus Christ’s glory and see in return how God the heavenly Father in turn uses your “servitude” towards him to also bless YOU as well! 😉
