Drift Away

We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.  Hebrews 2:1

It’s important as Christians we don’t “drift away’ from God because of the gift of grace we have been giving thru Jesus. It’s important as Christians we hold ourselves to a higher standard, not to conform to the world that lives by Satanic principles.

Be alert and sober for Satan is looking to devour you like a lion. When we “drift away” from God he leaves ourselves vulnerable. The sins of this world were created by Satan to destroy you not to prosper you at all

For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. Hebrews 2:2-3

Are you ignoring the salvation of Christ? God is willing to give you the gift of Grace but if you knowingly reject his salvation this is an act of disobedience. God is just, therefor you will receive just punishment for your sins. There is only one way to freedom and that’s thru Jesus Christ, who has taken the punishment already for you.

God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will. Hebrews 2:4

Jesus has performed many miracles yet still many people rejected him, are you still rejecting Jesus today? Allow Jesus into your heart and experience the wonders and miracles that only our Heavenly Father, the one true living God can perform in Jesus Name Amen

Peace With God

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Romans 5:1-2

We can have peace of mind because Jesus has justified us all through his grace. Its only because of him and what he has done, we are worthy to stand before God. Because of Gods Grace and Mercy through Jesus we have eternal Hope and Peace.

Jesus is called the Prince of Peace, why? Because thru his Victory at The Cross and his resurrection of the grave, we know that death has been defeated. We know that Satans head has been crushed as prophesized in Genesis. Greater is he living inside of me then he who is living in the world

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Romans 5:3-4

Suffering is a part of life, its not a topic many want to admit or talk about, but sometimes our greatest trials become our greatest victories. You can’t have a victory with a fight, and it’s the same you can’t produce perseverance if you’re never tested.

When going through these times, we need to remember how Jesus suffering produced Victory for all of us. Satan believes he has defeated you, but through your perseverance and hope in God, you become the Victor

And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:5

And then God sends his Holy Spirit to guide, heal, comfort, teach, and strengthen us. You are not alone, the power of the Living God is inside of you now. We can do all things thru Christ who gives us strength in Jesus Name Amen

The Last Prophet

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. Herbrews 1:1-2

God used many prophets throughout our history Noah, Abraham, Moses to Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel. However when God sent his only begotten Son Jesus, he revealed truth about our Heavenly Father that no human could comprehend

Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and The End. He is the Last Prophet, who is The Truth and through his truth and grace we are set free.

The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. Hebrews 1:3

If you want a really role model or mentor, look no further than Jesus. He is everything we should strive to be. And as any good leader, he lead by example. He humbled himself to serve others who the world considered unworthy.

Jesus did the will of God, even when he was sweating blood in the Garden of Gethsemane. Because of his faithfulness and obedience he delivered us all from Satan’s chains and sits at the right hand of God

So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father”? Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son”?Hebrews 1:4-5

God proclaimed Jesus is his only begotten Son multiple times, nobody else has ever been exalted this high from God. He is the name above all names, the one who makes demons tremble and saved us all from our sins in Jesus Name Amen

 

Born Again

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” John 3:3

What does it mean to be “Born Again”? This was the conversation Nicodemus had with Jesus, he believe it was literal but Jesus is talking about spiritually. We must remember that we are all living souls, just like God breathed life into Adam he breathed life into all of us.

And it’s only thru Jesus Christ that we can be “Born Again” and receive the Grace of God. We are not worthy to stand before God until we become reborn thru Christ

Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. John 3:5

Becoming “Born Again” Jesus demonstrates into two steps, Baptism is one of the steps. Jesus demonstrated the importance of baptism with John The Baptist. When we repent our sins before God we can become cleansed by The Living Water.

Then just as when Jesus came out of the water, The Holy Spirit descended upon him.  When we accept Christ as our Savior and repent our sins, we too can be filled with The Holy Spirit.

Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. John 3:6

The same power that rose Jesus from the grave is living inside us.  Only thru Jesus can we be “Born Again” and become transformed into the person God truly created us to be.

The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3:8

God can transform or redeem anyone; there is nothing impossible for God. Don’t believe that it may be to late or your to far gone. Just like the Prodigal Son, return to the Father and He will return to You become Born Again in Jesus Name Amen

Walk With Christ

There are three important steps with your “Walk With Christ”

  • Acceptance- The action of consenting to receive or undertake something offered.
  • Repentance- The action of sincere regret or remorse
  • Obedience- Compliance with an order, law, or submission to another’s authority

 

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:9-10

The first step is Acceptance, do you accept in your heart that Jesus is Lord and Savior? Do you believe he died for your sins? Do you believe he rose from the dead and conquered death? And if you believe this in your heart do you declare it with your mouth?

The world doesn’t want you to know who Jesus truly is because Jesus has defeated the world. The victory was won at the cross. Until you truly believe and understand who Jesus is and what he has done for you, he can’t be your Savior. Accept him into your heart and the truth shall set you free.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Romans 3:23-24

Why do we need Jesus as our Savior? Because we are all sinners, there is no one who hasn’t sinned against God. Jesus is the only sinless one who walked The Earth and he took our sins so that we could be justified before God.

You need to understand the seriousness of sin, as sin equals death. Your sins have dire consequences and there is only one way to be saved and receive eternal life that is thru our Lord Jesus Christ.

For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous. Romans 5:19

Adam was born a perfect man, he lived in paradise and had eternal life. But his disobedience cursed us all. He fell into Satans trap of sin, and sin equals death. You must understand sin doesn’t come from God, sin was created by Satan. Therefor if you continue to sin you are essentially following Satan.

But there was one man who was obedient to the will of God. He was the only begotten Son, Jesus. And he did the will of his Father, and paid the price for our sins. So if your ready to take that Walk with Christ say this prayer:

Heavenly Father, I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I believe he died for my sins and defeated death 3 days later. Please forgive me for my sins, and fill me with your Holy Spirit, let your will be done in Jesus Name Amen

Stand Before The Lord

“I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the LORD Almighty. Malachi 3:1

God fulfilled these prophecies when he sent John The Baptist as the messenger and his only begotten Son Jesus as our Messiah. When Jesus said he was going to rebuild the temple in 3 days they didn’t understand at the time. But it’s prophesied right here, as Jesus rose from the dead, defeating Satan and creating the new covenant that we all may be Children of God

But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap Malachi 3:2

We are all sinners and have fallen short to the Glory of God, none of us are worthy to stand before God. But only thru Jesus, who thru his atonement sacrifice, redeemed us of our sins and made us righteous before God. Without Jesus its not possible to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the LORD will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness, and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the LORD, as in days gone by, as in former years. Malachi 3:3-4

Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He sits at the right hand of God and has been given all authority over Heaven and Earth. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, develop a relationship with him, otherwise on judgment day he will say “Depart from me I never knew you”

“So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me,” says the LORD Almighty. Malachi 3:5

Many still today deny Jesus as there Lord and Savior, but make no mistake about it one day everyone will meet him face to face during their trial of judgement. Question is will Jesus know you as his faithful follower or a rebellious enemy? Jesus is the Truth, Life, and Way nobody gets to the Father except thru him in Jesus Name Amen
