Justice

Men will go into caves of the rocks And into holes of the ground Before the terror of the LORD And the splendor of His majesty, When He arises to make the earth tremble. Isaiah 2:19

What is going to save you from the “Great Day of The Lord”? Absolutely nothing. All the money in the world, all your political power, all your possessions and weapons will not save you!  The day when Jesus Christ returns will be rejoiceful for Christians but will be dreadful for the unsaved.

Justice, everyone wants Justice! All the evil and corruption of this world will finally be dealt with righteously. There will be no hung jury’s or corrupted lawyers to plead your case. Yours sins and blasphemy are being exposed by God and justice will be served

BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen. Revelation 1:7

Everyone one who is left on the Earth will mourn because Christ returns. Why? Because for Christians the time is for redemption, for the rest of the world their time is up! Judgement is coming upon The Earth, The King of Kings and Lord of Lords has come to cleanse the Earth from evil for good!

If your unsaved what can you do about this? You need to repent of your sins, turn away from evil and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior! There is no other salvation for your soul except through Jesus Christ

Heavenly Father, we pray the world comes to repentance and understands that you are the only way to salvation in Jesus Name Amen!

Worthless Offerings

“Bring your worthless offerings no longer, Incense is an abomination to Me. New moon and sabbath, the calling of assemblies– I cannot endure iniquity and the solemn assembly. Isaiah 1:13

You go to Church, you throw money into the plate, you repeat some words, does this means your saved? NO… There is only one way to save your soul and that’s by the blood of Jesus Christ. We are all sinners by nature, until we come to repentance and accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, you cant be saved.

Even though God made this clear through the prophet Isaiah, many people still don’t understand this. The Jewish people were Gods chosen people, but their hearts were far from him. They allowed sin and idolatry to overtake their lives instead of God. Their sin separated them from God, we cant be in his presence unclean and nonauthentic.

They continued their religious traditions and practices but God says they are “worthless” If you are not worshiping from the heart, your religion is worthless. Jesus is a personal relationship with God not another religion.

The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29

Jesus is The Lamb of God, who took away the sins of the world! Only through him can you be saved, you cant be saved by works, only by the blood of Jesus Christ who is the ransom for our sins!

Heavenly Father, help us to worship in truth, lead us to a personal relationship with you through your son in Jesus Name Amen!

“But the things which God announced beforehand by the mouth of all the prophets, that His Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. Acts 3:18

The second sermon given by Peter revealed how Jesus Christ has been foretold throughout the entire Bible. Even since the book of Genesis all the way through Revelation, Jesus Christ has been revealed to the world. Prophets like Moses, Isaiah , and Daniel all spoke of the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

And even though Jesus was revealed through the scriptures, the people still didn’t recognize him in the flesh. And not only did they reject him but had him tortured and crucified on a Roman cross. The Messiah that was promised by all the prophets through the Holy Spirit, was murdered by his own people

“For you first, God raised up His Servant and sent Him to bless you by turning every one of you from your wicked ways.” Acts 3:26

God raised up his only begotten Son, the suffering servant, who took the wrath of all our sins, so we can be justified before our Heavenly Father. The time has come for everyone to repent, the blood is on all our hands.

Only  Christ, can save us from the curse of death, repent and receive his salvation in Jesus Name Amen!

Swallowed Up Death

He will swallow up death for all time, And the Lord GOD will wipe tears away from all faces, And He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth; For the LORD has spoken. Isaiah 25:8

As Easter (Resurrection) Sunday has just passed, it’s a great time to remind ourselves what Christ has accomplished for us. Jesus defeated death forever, and he rose as the eternal King of Kings , that will rule Gods kingdom where there will be no more pain, sorrow, tears, or death forever

So why is there still death today since Jesus defeated death over 2,000 years ago? Because God doesn’t want anyone to perish , but to come to repentance and accept Jesus Christ for salvation (2 Peter 3:9) The old broken world still continues today because God provides Free Will to all and doesn’t force himself on anyone.

However time will be running out for Satan and this sinful world. And when the day comes when Christ returns, time is up for the wicked. There will be a day, when God will restore his kingdom and The New Heavens and Earth come together, to complete paradise for all of us who are saved through Jesus Christ.

And it will be said in that day, “Behold, this is our God for whom we have waited that He might save us. This is the LORD for whom we have waited; Let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.” Isaiah 25:9

There will be a day when we rejoice and say this is our God, Jesus Christ, whom we waited for to return and bring Heaven down with him. Without the work Christ did on the cross or in the tomb, the New Heavens and Earth would not be possible for us wretched sinners!

Thank you Lord Jesus for swallowing up death forever Amen!

Passover Lamb #GoodFriday

The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29

If there is any question how Judaism and Christianity are linked together, look no further than Passover/Easter. When the prophet John the Baptist announced, Jesus was the “Lamb of God” everyone knew what he was talking about.

The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. Exodus 12:13

To understand what Jesus has done for us at the cross, we need to understand what happened at Passover. The Israelites were being held slaves for over 400 years until God sent the prophet Moses to finally free them. Egypt’s refusal to allow Gods people go, left him no choice but to send 10 deadly plaques to call for their repentance.

The final plague was the Angel of Death that would “Passover” any home that was covered by the blood of the sacrificial “Lamb of God”

for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins. Matthew 26:28

Fast forward to when God sent his only begotten Son, as the perfect “Lamb of God’ to forever take away the sins of the world. Anyone who is covered by the “Blood of Christ” death will “Passover” them and we will live eternally in Gods Kingdom.

Remember this Passover/Easter, that Jesus is The Lamb of God. Because of him death will Passover you during the Resurrection in Jesus Name Amen

Who Do You Say I AM?

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Matthew 16:15

Who do you say Jesus is? This is what Jesus wants to know, he is not interested in what you heard from your pastor or what you read online, he wants to know what do you think? In your heart, mind, and soul who do you say Jesus is?

This is what Jesus asked his disciples, they began echoing thoughts and rumors they heard from around them. They said we heard you were John the Baptist resurrected, some were saying you are the prophet Jeremiah, others are saying you are the prophet Elijah, but Jesus doesn’t care about hearsay , he wants to know what do you really think!

Do you believe Jesus is just another prophet or do you believe Jesus is the Son of the living God? Doesn’t matter what your friends or family think , what do you think? When you have to stand before him face to face, who do you believe you will be looking at?

Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 16:16-17

Finally Peter had the boldness to declare what is in his heart, he declared Jesus is Christ, the Son of the living God. How could Peter have known this? Jesus never revealed this to Peter, all the rumors about Jesus were wrong.

It was revealed to Peter by the Holy Spirit, Peter maybe couldn’t explain it but he knew Jesus is the Messiah, God in the flesh. How do you say Jesus is in your heart?  Jesus doesn’t want to know what you were taught, he wants to know what is in your heart? Amen

And He said to them, “Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME ‘BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.’ Mark 7:6-7

I think one of the interesting things about Christianity, is Jesus came to abolish religion yet man made another religion out of his teachings.  The Pharisees were supposed to be experts of the scriptures, however they couldn’t even identify The Messiah right before their eyes.

See The Pharisees even though they loved God and the concept of  him, their hearts were far from God. Instead of them listening to the teachings of the Son of God, they judged him based on their manmade rules and opinions. They were hypocrites just as Isaiah prophesied they would be. They talked the talk but they didn’t walk the walk. Sadly we see many Christians doing the same thing today

And He said to him, “‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ Matthew 22:38

Love God with all your heart, soul, and mind. If the Pharisees really loved God they would have given Jesus a chance. Instead of condemning him because he ate with unclean hands, or scolding him because he healed the sick on the Sabbath. Or if they were truly seeking God then they would have recognized Jesus is The Messiah

But their hearts were far away from God even though they talked like holy people. Don’t allow your heart to wander from God, love him with all your heart, soul, and mind in Jesus Name Amen!

God In The Flesh

And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Mark 2:5

Another display of Jesus deity was revealed to us in this story. When a home was so crowded because Jesus was there, these men decided to lower a paralyzed man through the roof so Jesus would heal him.  But Jesus says an interesting thing here, instead of saying you are healed he says to the man “Your sins are forgiven”  Who can forgive sins but God?

“I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins. Isaiah 43:25

God clearly revealed he is the only one who can forgive sin, so then Jesus must be God in the flesh to forgive sin. The religious leaders understood this as they accused Jesus of blasphemy for this (Mark 2:7) If Jesus wasn’t claiming to be God in the flesh, then why would they accuse him of blasphemy?  Jesus  not only healed this man but make him a new man!

“But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins “– He said to the paralytic, Mark 2:10

Jesus revealed to everyone that he is God in the flesh, he has authority over sin and death. Son of Man is reference to the title  Daniel described seeing Jesus in his prophecy (Daniel 7) Jesus used this reference because the Religious leaders knew exactly who Jesus was revealing himself to be.

Through Jesus your sins can be forgiven, by your faith you can be healed in Jesus Name Amen!

Chosen One

Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations. Isaiah 42:1

Notice Jesus is not only Gods Son but his servant. Why? Because Jesus was obedient to his Father, He was obedient to carry out the will of his Father, to save us all from our sins. As Jesus said “By myself I can do nothing” (John 5:30) Jesus came to serve and not be served (Matthew 20:28)

But Jesus is “The Chosen One” , as God confirmed “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased (Matthew 3:17) born of a virgin, the chosen one, Jesus Christ, was sent here to save the world and be our Lord and Savior.

God put his Spirit on him, as confirmed when John baptized Jesus in the Jordan River and when he came up John confirmed “I saw the Spirit come down from Heaven as a dove and remain on him “(John 1:32) Even though Jesus was born the son of man, he is the Son of God full of the Holy Spirit.

Let’s remember the reason for this season is to celebrate the birth of our Messiah, who brought justice to all the nations! He brings hope to the hopeless and makes the crocked paths straight in Jesus Name Amen

Stump of Jesse Part 2

In that day the Root of Jesse (Jesus) will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place (Heaven) will be glorious. Isaiah 11:10

In this scripture we learn that Jesus is not just the Savior for the Jews but for the entire world.  As Jesus didn’t come to condemn the world but to save it (John 3:17).

Jesus said come to me all you are weary and burdened and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28) Jesus is the Prince of Peace, its thru him we can find rest and strength and nobody gets to the Kingdom of Heaven without going thru Jesus.

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people (Jews), which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea Isa  He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth. Isaiah 11:11-12

The Jews may have rejected Jesus as there Messiah the first time he came, but he is coming back for the “remnant of his people” The Jews. This time all the Jews will return to Jerusalem from the “four corners of the Earth” Why? Because Jesus is there King and he will deliver them from all there enemies and destroy everyone who wages war against Israel.

See the first time Jesus came as the Lamb to be slain for our sins, but this time Jesus is coming back as The Lion of Judah to reestablish the nation of Israel and recover his people.

They will swoop down on the slopes of Philistia to the west; together they will plunder the people to the east. They will subdue Edom and Moab, and the Ammonites will be subject to them. Isaiah 11:14

God said I will bless those who bless you (Israel) and I will curse those who curse you (Israel). Any nation looking to wage war with Israel will be plundered. Iran and Russia are currently looking to form an alliance with other countries to destroy Israel, this is the prophecy in Ezekiel 38 Gog and Magog

We are living in prophetic times, during our lifetime we will live to see the return of Jesus Christ and his acceptance by the Jewish people. Are you ready? Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior today
