He makes the winds His messengers, Flaming fire His ministers.
Psalms 104:4 NASB
He makes the winds His messengers, Flaming fire His ministers.
Psalms 104:4 NASB
“God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24
Jesus was having a conversation with the Samaritan woman at the well. She said to Jesus “The Jews say one must worship in Jerusalem” See the Jews believed that the only way you could be in the presence of God was to go the Holy Temple. However Jesus changed all of this, when he defeated death and rose again, we became the Holy Temples and the Holy Spirit now lives in us!
Sadly many Christians still have this same mentality. They think you can only worship God if you go to a “Church building” or follow some rituals or practices. This is not true Christianity, this is religion. If you are “Born Again” the Holy Spirit dwells in you, God is with you always. Worship him not only on Sunday but every day!
Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. John 4:21
Jesus is telling the woman, there will be a time (the Resurrection) when we no longer need to go to a specific place to find God. That hour has already come, Jesus not only defeated sin and death, but he “Tore the Veil” Meaning we can now come to God and worship him everywhere in Spirit and Truth
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Romans 8:11
The Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead, also lives inside of You! God has not forsaken you, God has not abandoned you! God lives in you, so worship him in Spirit and Truth Amen!
“Woe to the one who quarrels with his Maker– An earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth! Will the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you doing?’ Or the thing you are making say, ‘He has no hands ‘? Isaiah 45:9
Many people are at “War with God” Its not that they don’t believe in God or the evidence isn’t sufficient enough. Some people are battling a personal battle against their Maker, and guess what its not going to end well.
People have different personal reasons for rejecting God. Maybe there was a tragedy in the family, or maybe they had a bad religious experience. And while I sympathize with peoples pain this does not change the fact that God exists. We cant allow our emotions to cloud logic and reason!
Often times, all of us will say to God “What Are You Doing?” even though it’s a natural human reaction its also disobedience and lack of faith. Now I’m not saying we shouldn’t have conversations with God, that’s exactly what I’m saying. Maybe God is trying to open the door of communication with you?
“Woe to him who says to a father, ‘What are you begetting?’ Or to a woman, ‘To what are you giving birth?'” Isaiah 45:10
God is saying, we are like a new born child questioning their parents for giving birth to them! No matter how smart we think we are, our knowledge is limited compared to God. We cant even fathom the power and majesty of our Heavenly Father.
So how do we get close to God? There is only one way to the Father and that’s through Jesus Christ! If you want to know more about the Father, follow his Son in Jesus Name Amen!
“He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:36
Why is Jesus important to your life? Because everyone who rejects Christ the wrath of God abides on them! Think about that!
Many will say …my life is fine…I’m happy…I’m a good person…I don’t need Jesus…WRONG!
We have all broken the Law of God (Torah) We have all fallen short to the Glory of God and are all Sinners! Nobody has walked this Earth and not sinned except Jesus Christ…so whats the problem with sin?
The wages of Sin is Death! (Romans 6:23) Your only hope for salvation is Jesus Christ! He who does not obey Jesus will not see life! This is why Christ is important, this demonstrated Gods sacrificial love for us all
If your wrong about Jesus, doesn’t matter what your right about – Harold Hunter
Make sure you get it right about Jesus, because if your wrong you are condemned. Nobody gets to the Father (God) except through Jesus Christ (John 14:6)
“I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud And your sins like a heavy mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.” Isaiah 44:22
Even after all the times Israel rebelled and sinned against God, he was willing to wipe out their sins and redeem them! Why? Because our Heavenly Father is a loving and merciful Father.
Notice how God describes the removal of your sins, like a thick cloud and heavy mist. Can you see through a thick cloud or heavy mist? No when God forgives us of our sins, he remembers them no more! Satan, the accuser, likes to continually remind you of your sins and failures, however our Father in Heaven does not!
As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12
When we repent, God removes our sins from us because of the blood of Jesus Christ. How far is the east from the west? Farther than anyone can see, this is what God is telling us. He is a just God, when we truly repent, he wont hold things over us.
Jesus Christ is the atonement for our sins! Through Christ we can be redeemed. As God said to the Jewish people , Return To Me! Its time for us prodigal sons and daughters to Return to the Father, he will forgive you with open arms in Jesus Name Amen!
Bless the Lord , O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
Psalms 103:2-4 NASB
Those who fashion a graven image are all of them futile, and their precious things are of no profit; even their own witnesses fail to see or know, so that they will be put to shame. Isaiah 44:9
Instead of Israel putting their faith and trust in the one true God Yahweh, they put their faith in idols. Even after everything God did for Israel, freeing them from slavery, providing them food and water in the desert, they continued to forget God and pursue other objects
We as Christians are doing the same thing. Todays Prosperity Gospel is complete Idolatry. Nobody is worshipping God in truth and spirit, they are worshiping a golden calf. They want God to be their personal genie to give them money and earthly possessions. They don’t understand the true gospel of Jesus Christ, they don’t really know God of the Bible.
Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15
When you pursue the world you are not pursuing God. The things of this world are all temporary, they will all fade away. Pursue what is eternal, Jesus Christ! Your life is like a vapor in the wind, here today and gone tomorrow, all these possessions and pleasures you are pursing wont last
All these objects and idols have NO Profit, meaning they will bring no value to your eternal inheritance. Pursue the one that has made you Heavenly Rich by his blood in Jesus Name Amen!
He has regarded the prayer of the destitute And has not despised their prayer.
Psalms 102:17 NASB
Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3
Are you Born Again? What? Many people call themselves “Christians” but Jesus said unless you are “Born Again” you will not see the Kingdom of God, so what does “Born Again” mean?
but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.” Genesis 2:17
First, we must understand that we are sinners, meaning we “rebelled against God”, Adam and Eve decided to disobey God and listen to Satan, which allowed sin and death to enter the world. The curse of sin and death was inherited down to us all
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
We are all Sinners, and the penalty for our Sin is death. You may say “Well I’m a Good Person” , have your ever told a lie? Have you ever stolen anything? Have you ever used Gods name in vein? Yes these are all sins and we are guilty of sin. We have broken the Ten Commandments (Gods Law)
And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. Mark 10:18
Jesus himself said that NOBODY is Good except God alone, this is why we need a Savior! Thankfully God has sent us a Savior!
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
BUT There is good news (Gospel) because of Gods love and mercy, he became a man (Jesus Christ) and took the penalty for our sins at the cross. Through Jesus Christ you can be redeemed for your sins and inherit eternal life. So what do you have to do?
Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38
Repent meaning “Turn away from your sin” Be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and you become “Born Again” meaning filled with the Holy Spirit.
for “WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.” Romans 10:13
So who can receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior? Everyone! You also can be saved through Jesus Christ
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16
Even though we are sinners Christ died for us so we can inherit eternal life, this is true love. If your not sure where to start with your relationship with God, just say this prayer below
Heavenly Father, I am a sinner, please forgive me for my sins, I confess that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, give me a new heart and spirit in Jesus Name Amen!
