The Gatekeeper

“Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. John 10:1

There is only one way to Heaven and that’s through Jesus Christ,The Truth, Life and Way. All other roads lead to hell. The thief, who is Satan, only wants to rob and kill, he will try to lead you astray, to get you off the right path. Follow the Great Shepherd, he will lead you to everlasting pastures

The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. John 10:3
Jesus is calling you by name, he’s reaching out to save you from the thief. You are one of his sheep, he will show you the way to eternal life. If you seek you will find him, knock and the door shall be opened.

 

But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” John 10:5

There are many false prophets trying to impersonate The Great Shepherd, but there is only one Gatekeeper, and his name is Jesus Christ. God tells us to Test The Spirits, don’t follow any man claiming to be a prophet, what fruit are they bearing? There is only one, King of Kings.

 

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John  10:10

Satan wants to rob you of a blessed life, he wants to kill your immortal soul. Don’t fall for the deceptions of this world. What does it profit to gain the whole world and lose your soul? Listen to the voice of Jesus, The Great Shepherd, is calling you home today in Jesus Name Amen

Do You Believe

We know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this fellow, we don’t even know where he comes from.” The man answered, “Now that is remarkable! You don’t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes. John 9:29-30

These men claimed to know God yet couldn’t even recognize his only begotten Son who was prophesied throughout the Old Testament. Why do people really reject Christ? Is it because they truly don’t believe or is it because they don’t want to change their lifestyle?

These men saw Jesus perform miracles right before their eyes and give glory to God, yet they still decided to reject him. Why? Because these men loved religion more than a relationship with God. They loved the power, money and authority they achieved. They believed they were already holy and didn’t need forgiveness, even though they plotted to murder Jesus. As Jesus said we need to Deny Ourselves, Carry our Cross, and Follow Him.

We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly person who does his will. Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind. If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.” John 9:31-33

These men admitted right here that God would not allow these miracles to take place unless Jesus was doing the will of God. Yet they still rejected Christ, they were still so in love with themselves that they gave up their souls for the world.

Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said to him, Do you believe on the Son of God? John 9:35

After the Pharisees threw out the healed man, an amazing set of events happened. Jesus found the man and asked him do you believe he is the Son of God. The man acknowledged Jesus is the Son of God and Jesus allowed the man to worship him.

By Jesus allowing the man to worship him, hes showing us he is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus is the Messiah promised throughout the Old Testament, every knee shall bow and tongue confess, Jesus Christ is Lord Amen

Becoming Fools

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20

Can someone ignore God and claim they are voided of his judgment because they don’t believe in him? Absolutely Not! Many atheists take the stance I don’t believe in God therefore his laws and judgment don’t apply to them. God makes it clear, there is no excuse for anyone, since we are made in the image of God, and we are his evidence.

Just because you don’t or refuse to believe in something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist or apply to you. One day you’re going to meet Jesus face to face whether you reject him or not, your destiny is in your hands.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Romans 1:21

Many know there is a God but don’t want to believe or accept him because then they will have moral accountability. The reason Atheism is popular is because it justifies anarchy and lawlessness. Evolution and Big Bang Theory are just theories that have never been scientifically proven, so it takes more faith to believe in Nothingness than to believe in God. The reason Atheists choose atheism is because they love their sin more than God

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, Romans 1:22

The world continues to believe they are evolving but yet look at society, its apparent we are degrading. Never before had you heard of kids murdering other kids until they removed The Bibles from our school system. What happened? No moral accountability. Without God to rule your hearts you have become slaves to Satan. There is only one way to salvation and his name is Jesus Christ

Cain and Abel Part 2

Now Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the field.” While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him. Genesis 4:8

Jealousy and resentment had driven Cain to commit the first murder on Earth, what happened? Cain and Abel should have lived as best friends, true brothers but instead Cain allowed the Sins of Satan to creep into his head and control him.

See all Sin begins with a thought, and when we allow these thoughts to manifest into fantasies eventually they grow into action. This is what happened to Cain, he was overcome by Satan. This is why we need to fix our minds and eyes on The Lord, to keep our hearts clean

Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” “I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper? The LORD said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. Genesis 4:9-10

Not only did Cain commit murder but then he tried to cover up his sin and lie to God. Its one thing to fall short and sin but its another thing to never confess your sins and cover them. We must confess our sins before The Lord so we can be forgiven. Do you really think God doesn’t know what we have done? God knows your thoughts, he reads our hearts, don’t condemn yourself like Cain

Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.” Cain said to the LORD, “My punishment is more than I can bear. Genesis 4:11-13

There is no peace without God, Cain would spend the rest of his life in torment as a restless wanderer. Why? Because he rejected God and submitted to Satan. There is only one Prince of Peace and his name is Jesus Christ, don’t be a restless wanderer, come home like the Prodigal Son in Jesus Name Amen

Tomorrow

Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:14

We live in a fast paced world that just keeps looking for tomorrow but never lives for this day. You say well tomorrow I’ll have more money then I’ll be happy, or you say tomorrow I’ll have a better job or bigger house, then I’ll be happy. Meanwhile your life has passed you by, you missed out on all the blessings God has giving you right now

Remember This is The Day The Lord Has Made, I will be glad and Rejoice In It, not tomorrow or next week, or next month, right now. Nothing in life is guaranteed, stop squandering your time on things that may never come to pass

Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” James 4:15

Let thy Will Be Done, as we say in the Lords Prayer. If you really mean that, then live it. Stop trying to take total control of life, because you are not in total control. God is in control, he is the Creator of the Heaven and The Earth, when he says its going to happen, it will. So stay faithful and do the will of God and let him take care of your future.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34

Jesus taught us this listen, everyday has enough trouble of its own yet we continue to worry about tomorrow. Stay focused on today and Gods will for you, don’t worry about tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year. We walk by Faith and Not By Sight in Jesus Name Amen

Child of God?

Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. John 8:42-43

Anyone who doesn’t love Jesus couldn’t possible love God, our Heavenly Father. Jesus is the Word that became flesh, he does with will of his father, therefor anyone who rejects Christ rejects God. Most people don’t want to believe what Jesus said because he is the Truth, and the truth hurts. Instead of people changing there sinful ways, they rather embrace there sin and reject Christ.

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!John 8:44-45

Its pretty simple you are either a Child of God or a Child of Satan, you can’t walk with God and hold hands with the devil. Satan is the great deceiver and has implanted him in many religions, schools, movies, and even churches. Many blindly follow Satan and they might not even know it, what desires are you carrying out? Are they from God or Satan?

Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? John 8:46

Even though Jesus was sinless and nobody could honestly accuse him of any sin, they killed him because they loved Sin more than there soul. Jesus is the Lamb of God, who became the atoning sacrifice for our sins, yet the world still rejected him.

Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.” John 8:47

Whoever is truly a Child of God understands Jesus is the only Begotten Son of God. But many rejected him because there father is Satan, they are deceived by the desires of this world. Nobody else has rose from the grave and defeated death and sin, Nobody!

Who are you a Child of? God or Satan? Whos desires are you fulfilling? Do you do the will of God or Satan? There is only one Truth , Life, and Way in Jesus Name Amen

 

Solution is Jesus

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Are you tired? Tired of sin? Tired of addictions to drugs, alcohol, and pornography? Tired of depression and anxiety? Tired of being defeated and downcast? Tired of competing with your neighbor? Tired of wanting more and more and never being fulfilled? Tired of being let down my mankind?

but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:14

Well theres a solution, a solution to every problem in the world, why? Because he already overcame the world.  Jesus already defeated Sin, he already defeated addiction, he already defeated depression, he already defeated envy, he already defeated Satan because at the cross when he said “It Is Finished” he crushed the head of the serpent, he overcame all the evil of this world

Drink from the Living Water of Jesus, eat from the Bread of Life, and thirst and hunger no more. Why? Because its nourishment for your soul, not your body. Jesus is the same today, yesterday, and forever, he does not change, he is the Alpha and Omega, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Acts 2:21

Anyone who calls upon Jesus shall be saved, doesn’t matter who you are, where you from, your nationality, your race, your age, call unto Jesus Christ to save your soul, repent your sins to The Lord, he will fill you with the Holy Spirit and make you a new creature in Jesus Name Amen

Draw Near God

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

When you understand the power of Jesus Christ, when he said “It is Finished” on the cross, he defeated death and all sin. He crushed the head of Satan, and because of his blood we have victory thru Christ. With that said, when Satan attacks you, remind him of who you are, a child of God.

Tell Satan and all his demons to depart from you in the name of Jesus Christ, there is no greater power. Demons tremble at the sound of his name because he has the authority to destroy them forever.

Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. James 4:8

Everyone who calls upon the Lord shall be saved! If you want to get closer to God, just call on him and he will come to you. Many people may feel like God is a million miles away but its totally the opposite. God sent his Holy Spirit to empower, comfort, heal, and give us wisdom. The same power that rose Jesus from the grave is living inside of us!

 

Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. James 4:9-10

God resists the proud, humble yourselfs before The Lord. Don’t fall for the temporary pleasures of this world, endure temporary suffering to press on to the prize of our higher calling, which is to be Citizens of Heaven not of this world. To live is Christ in Jesus Name Amen
