Some Christians will sleep, unbelievers that die will suffer eternally, immediately!

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ. (Philippians 4:6-7)

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. (Colossians 3:15)

Behold, I tell you a mystery:  We shall not all sleep though, but will be changed – in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. (1 Corinthians 15:51-58)

Some some of us will be alive at His coming, and some will be asleep.

So I have peace about my brother, although if he sleeps, I know I will see him again. We still must go through the grief of losing that loved one. We must be with them through this painful time. As of yet we do not know the total prognosis. The pain for him is still there of course, since Thursday the procedure was done. We had to go to emergency Saturday to get his pain under control. He cannot eat, just drink water. He tried to eat before and we believe it was too soon.

I have faith in my Lord, Jesus Christ that His will be done for my brother and whatever he goes through will work out to the Glory of God. Because without Jesus and a personal relationship with Him, you are just as lost as the ones who killed our Lord, condemned already.

Don’t be deceived by god mockers. Those who profess they know Jesus and have taken His Word and use it to their own destruction. Religions cannot save you, they are pretense. Superficial in every shape and form. They are works of man, false gods, that are worshiped. They teach if you are good enough you might go to heaven. You can know the truth today, only if He has known you from the beginning and has mercy on your soul. Only Jesus is the true way unto life. All other ways are as thieves and robbers.

He is the Good Shepherd (John 10)

Repent and believe. You never know when you will die. It could be as soon as tomorrow, next week, in a minute. Don’t be caught in satan’s snare. Be a gentle servant. (2 Timothy  2:24-26)

Peace in Heaven is possibly close for my brother.

And we know all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28)

My favorite of my favorite bible verses. I am sitting at my Christian brother’s computer (my earthly brother also) thinking the Lord knows what is ahead for him. I do not. Although I have my anxiety about what is to come and many tears shed already. After an MRI, a CT scan, and an advanced endoscopy. He is in more comfortable, and recovering at home. Next week we will know the results of a sample she took from the duct connecting the pancreas and gallbladder that have atrophied. There is no reversal for atrophy. It will take four to six weeks before the swelling goes down in his pancreas. Then she will do another endoscopy, removing a stint she put in to open the initial blockage. Then her diagnosis will be assured. I have not given up hope and prayer, many are praying for us.

I have a hard time thinking of my life without him. Yet, the doctor says he has had chronic pancreatitis a long time. His severe symptoms came about two weeks ago.

My feelings are selfishness. Because the Lord has had my brother’s life planned from the beginning. My brother is at peace either way, knowing his eternal salvation is forever unto glorification and no separation from God. He already made his decision of no chemo or radiation unless it will save his life. I would do the same.

We have all been through death in our families lives. As born again believers, we know we will see them again. Even after King David’s adultery and the killing of Bathsheba’s husband, the Lord told him he would take his son born of that sin. After fasting and mourning, the child died and King David knew he would see him again. (2 Samuel 11, 12:1-23). My family awaits the Lord’s will.

Glory to God, in Jesus Christ. Amen!

Prayers for needs for all and Blessings that come..

I find myself today praying for others and being prayed for praying for them. The Lord lives through us as we grow more and more in His strength. Some are issues with illness of a family member and a dear friend. Another blessing for another family member for a good doctor visit. When we are hurting or in need, we become one with the Lord, comforters. We cannot do it alone, Christians are a body of one church in Christ Jesus.

We know as Christians whatever happens is according to His will. We trust and praise Him in our prayers. We pray for needs for others, and ourselves to remain obedient servants. He will answer according to His will, not ours.

So come before the Lord Jesus today, on bended knees before His cross where He died for you. Trust Him with all you are. When you leave here, it is with your soul only. The rest means nothing. He sees to it that we have what we need. So you can be dragging all the riches in the world down through the wide gate and that evil soul will perish, or you can be at peace knowing your Lord Jesus, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit who dwells within you will be awaiting you. The gate is narrow unto life, with an immortal, glorified soul and body and treasure beyond all we could ever imagine in heaven. (Matthew 7:13-14; Matthew 6:19-21)

Are you striving for that narrow gate? Test yourself. Do you believe Jesus Christ was crucified, died on the cross, and rose from the dead and ascended into heaven to right hand of God the Father? Jesus’s death is a complete propitiation (substitution) for remission of our sins, past, present and future. (Romans 3:25; Romans 6; Hebrews 2:17; 1 John 2:2; 1 John 4:10) He died for all that God the Father will draw to Him (Jesus). Jesus will lose none and will raise us up on that last day. We were lost sheep, many will remain lost sheep, cast off forever. The angels rejoice in heaven over one sheep that is found. I pray you are His sheep because all His sheep hear His voice and will follow no one else. (false gods, god mockers, false teachers). (Jude 18:16-19; Matthew 7:15-23; Matthew 24:23-26)

God is the I AM. Always was, always is and always will be forever into eternity. John 8:54-59)  By Faith we understand. (Hebrews 11)

The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit!

Will the One and Only True God let you hear the truth?

We spent the weekend at my sister’s house in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. We are all born again Christians, expect my mom and my other nephew who is out-of-town. She takes affront to whatever we talk about. Sadly I see her rejection. I feel her rejection of the truth. What brought about this was that the pope says we need to stop talking about certain issues. You can go to heaven regardless of repenting or not. We need to move on to other issues. Even though the bible says you must repent of your sins, he does not press those truths. The Lord chooses who He wills, all types of sinners, to whatever degree. In other words all those that are spiritually transformed, God gives grace (forgiveness to whom he chooses). We don’t know why one is chosen over another. We don’t even know who the chosen are before their conversions. That is why He sent His apostles on their mission to make disciples of all nations and people. I am a sinner that should never see anything but, hell. Yet He gave me mercy. Whatever your sins are the door is open to you to repent and trust Him to transform your life. He knows all men’s hearts from the beginning. The question is will you know Him? Are you a called, a chosen, an elect Christian? If you are you will be spiritually transformed no matter your sins.

The pope is meeting with a group of ten imams of France to promote religious tolerance on Wednesday. I am just stating what the pope said. He is with the help of other deceivers, trying to join the world into one world of joined religions all welcome to worship their gods together. It is already happening. I for the truth revealed by God’s word (the Bible) trust Him because His word is perfect and true. Anyone who says He is not God, worships the prince of this world, satan. You cannot seek God, He decides if you are made for destruction or for His glory. He who has ears, let him hear.

Witnessing the death of unbeliever.

One of my brother’s friends said he witnessed to his mom until the very end of her life. She died with a terrible look on her face. Even the nurses were alarmed. Maybe that meant at last she understood that God is our judge. I witnessed my dad’s death and it was peaceful, God only knows if he was born again those last hours. I also spoke to a man who said he knew the Lord. He really suffered he had colon cancer and it spread everywhere. When I first met him I asked him if he was at peace. He said yes. He was reminded those last hours to pray and let go and go home to the Lord. For Christians the sting of death is not fearful. We know that in a twinkle of an eye we will be with our Father in heaven. My pastor says every day, use your gifts the Lord has given you. We are all part of the body of the church and our gifts work together. They are not all the same, but all work as one in the body of the church.

So use your gifts everyday. We need not wait for someone who is dying. We need to talk to people about what is going on in this world. These are prophetic times. Things are not getting better. They are declining more and more. This world is not forever. We are forever souls. We go on forever in heaven or in hell. If you meet a Christian who is telling you about Jesus, don’t turn away. A Christian cannot convert you to their beliefs. Only God has that supernatural power. If  you have no bible based church, find one. It is important to have A Pastor that knows the word and preaches it.

“Verily, Verily I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God”. (John 3:3) Are you a born again Christian? You must repent of your sins and believe that Jesus took your atonement on the cross. You must become as a little child, learning the truth by reading God’s word. He said the truth will set you free. We have no other way of reaching heaven. It is only by His sovereign grace, that we have faith.

As Christians, the Lord wills us to make a difference.

Nothing is Hidden.

Wherever you are in this world of wars and terrors, it is not safe. The reason is because you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior. You may lose your earthly body, but your soul will go on eternally. The Word of the Lord is being preached to all nations. Are you listening? The more you hear the Word the more you know. The more you know the bigger your degree of punishment will be from God for not repenting your sins. Some of you will never repent because you don’t want to turn to God. You want to believe you are in control of your own destiny or maybe you say there is nothing after death. There are so many religions out there believing different things about the afterlife. There is no way God (Who is only good) is going to allow us to be bad in heaven. We are justified (to be declared innocent or guiltless; absolved; acquitted) at His calling to follow Him, having mercy on us to believe by faith. We then live being sanctified (to be purified or freed from sin, made holy or set apart as sacred) the rest of our time here, through trials and tribulation unto glorification (to cause to be or treat as being more splendid, excellent, etc., than normally would be considered, to praise the glory of (God) especially as an act of worship) as adopted sons and daughters. We are the servants whom He has given the Holy Spirit, to be lights in the darkness.

For God so loved the world He gave His only Begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than the light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest their deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God. (John 3:16-21)

We don’t know every detail about heaven. There are mysteries only God knows. We can read major details about the New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven prepared for us. (Revelation 21:9-27). The River of Life is described in (Revelation 22:1-5). There is so much more for us to see, it is beyond our understanding.

We will all know the answers when Jesus comes again and destroys this world of evil. Do you not know that friendship with this world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.(James 4:4) No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (riches or wealth regarded as a source of evil and corruption; avarice or greed). (Matthew 6:24)

If you hear and see that is His choice for you. It is because He already had mercy on you. God Bless all of us who have mercy and believe. For we will see The Everlasting Kingdom of the Only God, Our Father. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
