For all that will come to Him.

Jesus died yesterday on the cross, crucified for all of those who would come to Him. He defeated death for us. He took our sins upon Himself to free us through grace through faith. No one can come to the Father except the Son. And no one can know the Father without the Son. 1 John 2:15  1 John 2:22,1 John 4:14, 2 John 1:9,  John 1:12-13, John 6:44, John 6:65  John 5:18, John 5:17-30, John 10:24, John 14:6 Matthew 10:32-33, Matthew 11:27, Luke 10:22

Seven of our local Christian bible believing churches came together worshiping Jesus. The beautiful praising voices rocked the whole block. We are not those that have a stumbling block in Jesus. We are those that will meet Him in the sky when he comes for us. We are always waiting and watching.

We sang Jesus Paid The Highest Price

Poor and lowly as I am, helpless as a wond-‘ring lamb. All but lost without a fold;  my waywardness has left me cold. As shadows fall a voice draws near, it stirs my heart, expels my fear. Tis Jesus Christ, the Shepherd King, come to pay the price for me. Bleeding Shepherd sacrificed, thou hast paid to high a price to reach and save the weak and small, and wrap your arms around them all. When love laid down upon the cross, Hope sprang up, called out to us. Sin’s great debt was satisfied, Jesus paid the Highest price.

Mountains high and valleys low your voice has led me through them all. With ever mile, my hunger grows to be with you before your throne. Where I will see you face to face, my scars and sorrows then erase. All because my Shepherd King came and paid the price for me.

And  What Kind of Love.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so whoever believes in Jesus shall not perish but have everlasting life. What kind of love is this, what kind of love is this that the God who made the universe would become someone like me? What kind of love, what kind of love is this that he sacrificed his life so we could be forever free. That’s the love of God.

How the Apostles Died &
 The Death of Jesus
1
Matthew Suffered martyrdom in Ethiopia, Killed by a sword wound.
2
Mark
Died in Alexandria, Egypt , after being dragged by Horses through the streets until he was dead.
3
Luke Was hanged in Greece as a result of his tremendous Preaching to the lost.
4
John Faced martyrdom when he was boiled in huge Basin of boiling oil during a wave of persecution In Rome. However, he was miraculously delivered From death. John was then sentenced to the mines on the prison Island of  Patmos…He wrote his prophetic Book of Revelation on Patmos . The apostle John was later freed and returned to serve As Bishop of Edessa in modern Turkey. He died as an old man, the only apostle to die peacefully.
5
Peter He was crucified upside down on an x-shaped cross. According to church tradition it was because he told his tormentors that he felt unworthy to die In the same way that Jesus Christ had died.
6
James The leader of the church in Jerusalem , was thrown over a hundred feet down from the southeast pinnacle of the Temple  when he refused to deny his faith in Christ.  When they discovered that he survived the fall, his enemies beat James to death with a fuller’s club. * This was the same pinnacle where Satan had taken Jesus during the Temptation.
7
James the Great Son of Zebedee, was a fisherman by trade when Jesus Called him to a lifetime of ministry. As a strong leader of the church, James was ultimately beheaded at Jerusalem.  The Roman officer who guarded James watched amazed as James defended his faith at his trial. Later, the officer Walked beside James to the place of execution. Overcome by conviction, he declared his new faith to the judge and Knelt beside James to accept beheading as a Christian.
8
Bartholomew Also known as Nathaniel Was a missionary to Asia. He witnessed for our Lord in present day Turkey.  Bartholomew was martyred for his preaching in Armenia where he was flayed to death by a whip.
9
Andrew Was crucified on an x-shaped cross in Patras, Greece.  After being whipped severely by seven soldiers they tied his body to the cross with cords to prolong his agony. His followers reported that, when he was led toward the cross, Andrew saluted it in these words: ‘I have long desired and expected this happy hour.  The cross has been consecrated by the body of Christ hanging on it.’  He continued to preach to his tormentors For two days until he expired.
10
Thomas Was stabbed with a spear in India during one of his missionary trips to establish the church in the Sub-continent.
11
Jude 
Was killed with arrows when he refused to deny his faith in Christ.
12
Matthias The apostle chosen to replace the traitor Judas Iscariot, was stoned and then beheaded.
Paul Was tortured and then beheaded by the evil Emperor Nero at Rome in A.D. 67. Paul endured a lengthy imprisonment, which allowed him to write his many epistles to the churches he had formed throughout the Roman Empire. These letters, which taught many of the foundational Doctrines of Christianity, form a large portion of the New Testament. 
Perhaps this is a reminder to us That our sufferings here Are indeed minor compared To the intense persecution And cold cruelty faced by the apostles And disciples during their times For the sake of the Faith. And ye shall be hated Of all men for my name’s sake: But he that endureth to the end shall be saved. 


Faith is not believing that God can,
It is knowing that God WILL!”Jesus’ Death
The Death of JesusFor the next 60 seconds, set aside whatever
You’re doing and take this opportunity! Let’s see if Satan
Can stop this.

THE (SCIENTIFIC) DEATH OF JESUS

At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to death .  At the time
Crucifixion was the “worst” death. Only the worst Criminals were condemned to be crucified. Yet it was Even 
more dreadful for Jesus, unlike Other criminals condemned to death by Crucifixion Jesus was to be nailed to the Cross by His hands and feet. Each nail Was 6 to 8 inches long. The nails Were driven into His wrist. Not Into His palms as is commonly Portrayed. There’s a tendon in the wrist that Extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew That when the nails were being hammered into the Wrist that tendon would tear and Break, forcing Jesus to use His back Muscles to support himself so that He could Breath. 

Both of His feet Were nailed together. Thus He was forced to
Support Himself on the single nail that Impaled His feet to the
cross. Jesus could Not support himself with His legs
because of the pain So He was forced to alternate between
arching His Back then using his legs just to continue to
Breath. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the Suffering, the courage.
Jesus endured this Reality for over 3 hours. Yes, Over 3 hours!
Can you imagine this kind of Suffering? A few minutes before
He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water
From his wounds. From common images We see wounds to
His hands and feet and even the spear wound To His side…
But do we realize His wounds Were actually made in his body.
A hammer Driving large nails through the wrist, the feet overlapped
And an even large nail hammered through the arches, then a
Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. But Before the nails
and the spear Jesus was whipped and Beaten. The whipping was
so severe that it tore the Flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His Face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The Crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Most men Would not have survived this torture. ” He had no more blood To bleed out, only water poured from His Wounds. The human adult body contains about 3.5 liters (just less than a gallon) of blood. Jesus poured all 3.5 Liters of his blood; He had three nails hammered into His Members; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyond That, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His Chest..
All these without Mentioning the humiliation He suffered after carrying His own Cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his Face and threw stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight, Only for its higher part, where His hands were Nailed). Jesus had To endure this experience, to open the Gates of Heaven, So that you can have free Access to God. So that your sins Could be “washed” away. All of them, with no exception!


JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU!

He died for you! It Is easy to pass jokes or foolish photos by e-mail, but
When it comes to God, sometimes you feel ashamed to forward To others

because you are worried of what they may think About you.  God Has plans
for you, show all your friends what He experienced To save you. Now think
about this! May God bless your Life!
60 Seconds with God… For the next 60 Seconds, set aside what you’re doing and take This opportunity! Let’s see if Satan can stop This.. All you have to do Is:
1. Simply Pray for the person who sent this message to You:
2.Then, send this Message to people.. The more the better.
3. People will Pray for you and you will make that many people pray         to God For other people.
4. Take a Moment to appreciate the power of God in your life, for
Doing what pleases Him.
If you are not Ashamed to do this, please, follow Jesus’ instructions.
He said (Matthew 10:32 & 33):  “Everyone therefore Who acknowledgesme before others, I also will acknowledge before My Father in heaven; but whosoever denies Me before others, I also will deny before My Father in heaven”.

I ask the unbeliever if she now knows she is going to heaven. Answer no one knows for sure. If anyone has anything different to these deaths please feel free to respond. I just reposted this. Jesus did not carry His own cross. Simon of Cyrene carried it.
Matthew 27:32, Mark 15:21, Luke 23:26
So we know that only A few will be chosen. So strive to enter the narrow gate. Luke 13:22-30

Find your gifts from the Lord.

Since being back in United States, many things have changed. I was very ill. I had to go through therapies, etc. As I was, the Lord walked with me, beside me always. He never left me. He always is there. He loved us so much that he came to earth became man, lived a perfect life and died and rose from the dead to appease our sins.(John 3:16) Many prophesies tell of his coming and returning. (Isaiah 11) Of ourselves it is impossible to go to heaven. With Him all is possible. (Matthew 19:26) Without Him we remain in our sins unless we believe and repent and give Him all. All of our, hearts, souls, minds and strength. That is how you must Love Him. (Matthew 22:37-38)

I find joy in the gifts He has given me, despite my trials in life… I meet many people and I am there in the Lord’s purpose for me. Seek and you will find Him and He will show you the way through His word. He knows all that are His in the world from the beginning of it to the end. (John 10:14)

Don’t let yourself be deceived by false religions. They are all ritualistic, of works, abominable to God. All the Lord’s prophets we killed by the priests, scribes and people, as prophesied throughout the Old Testament. Read the gospel of John. It tells the truth, as all of the Bible is God’s truth about how they plotted to kill Him. They could not believe because of their self-righteousness and they belonged to the devil. (John 8:42-59) The Lord wishes for none to perish, but sadly there will be many that do. (2 Peter 3:9)

Only He knows from the beginning where you will spend your eternity with Him, or apart from Him, eternity in hell. Hell is for real and it is beyond your greatest fears. Those who do not repent will suffer forever. Won’t you know today that you have no control over your destiny. It is your Father in heaven, who does. Fear the Lord who is in control, sovereign over all, the Creator of All.

My testimony from darkness to the Light.

In my life I always knew there was something wrong with me, very young. That certain need for love and not wanting to be unwanted. So I spent years in school really just existing. I really never wanted attention. I got it though the negative bullying kind. I couldn’t wait to get out of school. So I grew up and did the drinking, partying, sleeping around to find love. I thought life was about being married and having a family, trying to build a good life together. I just wanted that, to be happy.

On and off through the years I drank, and drugged myself into nowhere. I never knew what we were here for. I was escaping somehow, liking being wasted, not wanting to see the reality of who I was. I had mood swings over the years and took antidepressants for about fifteen years. Then one day poof, my brain got very sick. As you may have read in my bio, you know I am bipolar with post traumatic stress disorder. I don’t write this to say my life before was worse than any one else’s.

I write to say the Lord saved me. He watched over me from the beginning. I should have been dead many times over but, I am here. He chose me to be one of His children forever. I can say that without His choice, I would be going to hell. I sat here one day at my computer, destroyed, broken and crying out to Him and He was there and ready to catch me. I had nothing left. My family was over, being mentally ill destroyed that pretty quickly. I did with the Lord’s guidance recover to be who He wants me to be. In His grace, I live every day serving Him. It is not about us. It’s about Him, loving others through you. It’s about truly and purely having His Holy Spirit in your heart and loving fully.

Don’t get me wrong it would be wonderful to share this with my family. That may not be God’s will for me. I could not make a life now with an unbeliever. Nor could I not have full support and understanding of my illness. That’s all I ever wanted. I take meds and I am fine. I know I don’t owe it all to that. The Lord has healed me in ways I never thought could happen over two years ago. I just finished my last twenty weeks of group counseling. He made me heal, it was a good chance to witness every week for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You never know what He has in store for others. You may be the witness that the Lord uses to awaken the dead to the light. Don’t waste an opportunity. Sometimes we just say, “Have a Blessed Day!” Who blesses every day God does? If you don’t know that, just maybe you will. As I said he chooses, not us. We cannot choose as He first chose us.

So do I do those things mentioned, drinking, partying, etc? No my life is being sanctified by Him. We are all ready and waiting for His return. How long will we wait? Until we die or when He chooses to come again. We just know to always be ready. If we die we go directly to Him. There is no one between Him and us. All we need to believe is Jesus died, so our sins could be forgiven (repent). He was buried in a rich man’s tomb and was resurrected on the third day. The  false priests, scribes, leaders and people had Him crucified. It was His plan from the beginning to be the Perfect Lamb sacrificed for us.

Think about your life and the way it goes daily. Can you honestly say you have a relationship with your Creator? Can you talk to Him and praise Him for what He has done in your life? Do you know the truth and are you free? Do you know for sure you are going to heaven? I do, praise The Lord, My God.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

(John 1:1-5)

Growing in Faith through Grace

What are the ways to grow in your faith? First, pray unceasingly. We find ourselves thinking of our Lord all throughout our days. Thanking Him for our eternity which will be spent with Him. We praise Him from our hearts singing joyful songs and letting prayer flow with peace and joy from our hearts indwelt by His Holy Spirit. We still have our trials in life but, He knows what we need when pray for it. We pray for His perfect will for us and others. We are trusting Him in everything, every day. We see what is going on in this world. Jesus told us through His word in advance what we will see before His second coming.

“You Lord, in the

beginning laid the foundation of the

earth,

And the heavens are the

work of Your hands.

They will perish, but You

remain;

And they will all grow old like a garment;

Like a cloak You will fold

them up,

And they will be changed.

But You are the same,

And Your years will not fail.”

(Hebrews 1:10-12)

Second, we study His Word every day. We grow more in knowledge with His Holy Spirit guiding us always. We realize that without His sovereignty we would be judged already and hell-bound. All we do know is, it was not of ourselves that we were saved, chosen. It is nothing of ourselves that saves us. He has chosen (gave us mercy, grace) out of the world. A people all His own. A people from all nations to worship, honor and glorify Him forever. We know that he has chosen sinners that have repented their evilness because there is not one of us who sought God on our own. We all are born to sin because of the fall of Adam and Eve from His perfect Garden of Eden. They had constant fellowship with God. They were deceived by the devil embodying a snake, after his fall. Satan rebelled against God. He wanted to be God and made them think they also would be like God knowing good and evil. We are cursed because of them and since then the people of the world have grown more evil. (Genesis 3:1-24)

Abel was murdered by his own brother Cain, continuing the evil. Which eventually led to the destroying of all man by the flood, except Noah and his wife, three sons and their wives. Noah was a descendant of Adam by his third son Seth. Adam also had many other sons and daughters. So then after the flood the nations descended from Noah’s sons:  Shem, Ham and Japeth. And sons were born to them after the flood. (Genesis 4-10)

The whole earth had one language until the tower of Babel. The Lord then scattered them abroad all over the earth and they stopped building the city.(Genesis 11)

Abram came from the descendants of Shem. His father was Terah. Now the Lord had said to Abram:

“Get out of your country,

From your family

And from your father’s

house,

To a land I will show

you.

I will make you a great

nation;

I will bless

And make your name great;

And you shall be a

blessing.

I will bless those who

bless you,

And I will curse him who

curses you;

And in you all the families of the earth

shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:1-3)

Abraham begot Isaac and Isaac begot Jacob. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:  the sons of Leah were Reuben, Jacob’s firstborn, and Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun; the sons of Rachel were Joseph and Benjamin; the sons of Bilbah, Rachel’s maidservant, were Dan and Naphtali; and the sons of Zilpah, Leah’s maidservant, were Gad and Asher. Theses were the sons of Jacob born to him in Padan Aram. (Genesis 35:23-26) Also the sealed of Israel will come from these tribes. (Revelation 7:1-8) One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Jacob’s name was changed to Israel. (Genesis 35:1-15)

Genesis is not a story tale as the Roman Catholics now say (my priest before I left the church and is backed up by the pope (he takes the place of God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit on earth). It is their deception through the devil. For there is only one way to God. Not by anything we do. Only by His grace are we saved. It is in the Bible for all to read. If the Lord saves you. You will have discernment and be able to read it all. Otherwise, unsaved it will be foolishness to you.

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written:

“I will destroy the wisdom

of the wise,

And bring to nothing the

understanding of the

prudent.” (1 Corinthians 1:18-19)

Psalm 14

The fool has said in his heart,

“There is no God.

They are corrupt,

They have done

abominable works,

There is none who does

good.

The Lord looks down

from heaven upon the

children of men,

To see if there are any

who understand, who seek God.

They have all turned

aside,

They have together

become corrupt;

There is none who does

good,

No, not one.

Have all the workers of

iniquity no knowledge,

Who eat up my people as

they eat bread,

And do not call on the

Lord?

There they are in great

fear,

For God is with the

generation of the

righteous.

You shame the counsel of

the poor,

But the Lord is his refuge.

Oh, that salvation of Israel would come out

of Zion!

When the Lord brings back the captivity of

His people,

let Jacob rejoice and

Israel be glad.

Zion is the place on earth where God was pleased to reveal His presence, protection, and power. It still is and will always be. If you hate Israel as it says above you are cursed…(Genesis 12:3)

You have the Bible to read and you will understand if you repent to the only God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit dwells in all true Christians.

All that the father gives me will come to Me, and the one that comes to Me I will by no means cast out. (John 6:37)

The Genealogy of Christ through Mary (Luke 3:23-38)

The Genealogy of Christ (Matthew 1:1-17)

Third, we witness to all nations and people. (Matthew 24:14, Matthew 28-18-20)

Hear the Heavenly Voice through the Bible, God’s Word..

See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape Him who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, whose voice then shook the earth;  but now He has promised saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also the heaven.” “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that which cannot be shaken remain.

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.

Hebrews 12:25-29

At Mt Sinai God shook the earth. The consequences for unbelievers now will be far dire indeed. The judgement to be experienced and the expected terror is far in excess of that on Mt Sinai. God shook the earth from Zion. He will shake the heavens, the entire universe on the Last Day…His Second Coming (Jesus).

The Bible is God-breathed.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses to of His majesty. For he received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory:  “This is My Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” And this voice came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.

And we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by man, but holy men of God spoke as the were moved by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:16-21)

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of the soul and spirit, and joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no  creation hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to who we must give account. (Hebrews 4:11-13)

In other words, Do you think you can hide from your creator’s judgement?

That is, if you believe his Word handed down from generation to generation. Why is it there for all to read and learn the truth? Do you want to know the truth, ask Him, he will give freely to you, if you are sincere in heart to repent and follow Him.
