The Way

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6

This scripture is probably the anthem for Christianity. Before Jesus ascends back to Heaven, he promised us that he is preparing a place for us. The disciple Thomas then asked , “Where are you Going?” Jesus made it very clear, he is The Way, and the only Way to God the Father and eternal life

Jesus is The Way, there is no other way to get to God, there is no other way to obtain salvation! Its very simple because he is the atonement for our sins, nobody else could take the penalty for our sins, except for Jesus Christ

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

Jesus is The Truth, Jesus is the Living Word of God. Everything that Christ has spoken and taught us is from God. While lies will mislead you, The Truth Jesus Christ will set you Free!

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

Jesus is The Life, its only through him we can obtain eternal life. We have all fallen short, we are all sinners and in need of a savior! Nobody can earn their salvation, only Christ could and did accomplish this at the cross.

All roads don’t lead to God, only one Way leads to God and eternal life, that’s Jesus Christ Amen!

Hedge of God

“Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. Job 1:10

When we read the book of Job we learn many things about the battle between Satan and God. We also learn that God had put a “hedge” of protection around Job and his family because he was blessed by God. When we stay loyal and obedient to God he will bless you and your family also and put a “hedge” around them.

Hedge- also translated as “Wall”- is a surround or border put around something

God was bragging to Satan how proud he was of Job, because he was a righteous man. But Satan complained to God that he couldn’t get to Job because of the “hedge” of protection around him and his family. God then allowed the “hedge” to be lifted for Satan to test Job.

So if you really want to bless your family and yourself, get in agreement with God. Have your family covered by the blood of Jesus Christ (Luke 22:20) There is no power greater than “The Great I AM” If you truly cared about your family, you would put the “Hedge” of God around them in Jesus Name Amen

Road to Heaven

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

Are there many roads to Heaven? Many false teachers and religions teach there are multiple paths to Heaven and God. They teach that God is manifested in different forms and all religions lead to the same God. These teachings contradict The Bible and go against everything Jesus has taught us. Jesus made it very clear he is the only way to God and Heaven.

So why is Jesus the only way? The reason is we have a sin problem; in the beginning we were created perfect. Then Satan entered sin into the world through Adam and Eve, and corrupted the entire human race. Since the wages of sin are death, we are now slaves to sin and death. For are all sinners and have fallen short to the Glory of God.

But God had a redemption plan, since he loves us and his mercy endures forever, he sent his only Son to be the atonement for our sins. Jesus took on our sins and the sins of the world, so that we may have eternal life. Jesus is the only one who can do this for us, since he is perfect and the only Son of God. No one else can forgive you of your sins.

After 3 days Jesus rose from the dead and lives forevermore. He holds the keys to death and hell. Jesus now sits at the right hand of God with all power and authority. He defeated death, sin, and hell on the cross for you and I.

If you would like to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior say this prayer:

Heavenly Father,

Forgive me of my sins, I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior, fill me with your Holy Spirit in Jesus Name Amen

Present Suffering

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

How can we remain at peace during our present suffering? As Christians we need to be realistic that there is going to be trials and suffering during life. Jesus told us we will encounter trouble, trials, and even tribulation, however he ended by saying take Heart I have overcome the world (John 16:33)

See even when we are suffering we can have the peace of God knowing that we are already victorious. Not matter what Satan is trying to do to us, Jesus have already overcome. There is nothing impossible for God, and we need to remember not to let a trial derail our faith.

The next part is our current suffering can’t compare to the glory of God that is ahead of us. Jesus told us there will be a day of no more tears, no more suffering, no more death for the former things have passed away (Revelation 21:4)  So don’t allow your current suffering or trials defeat you because Jesus has already defeated death and sin

God teaches us to be content in all circumstances (Philippians 4:12) When we have strong faith we don’t have a wavering attitude. It’s easy to be joyful when everything is going good but it’s how you respond to suffering and trials that truly displays your faith. So whatever you’re going through today, tell Satan my present suffering can’t compare to the glory of God in my future in Jesus Name Amen

The Time Has Come!

But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law Galatians 4:4

The time has come! God has sent his only begotten Son born of a virgin!  Because of this great gift given to us from our Heavenly Father , we can now be children of God. Many find it hard to imagine that we could become part of this covenant, but because of the great gift of Christ, the time has come!

We are no longer slaves to sin and death because of the birth of our Messiah. Because of this reflect on the importance of Jesus birth. Our hope and peace could not be possible without birth of Christ. Heaven came down to Earth to save us from our sins.

But because Jesus was born under the law, he had to die for our sins because the wages of sin is death. He became the living sacrifice, the atonement for us so we can be free. The gift of Jesus is the gift of eternal life. Without Christ there would be no hope but since God sent his son we can live in Jesus Name Amen

Gods Gift To Us All

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

We often hear that God is love and this love has been demonstrated by God sending his only begotten Son , Jesus, into this world to save us and be our Lord. Can we really know love without action? You can be reassured by the birth of Jesus, it’s a sign that God does love you! Even though we were sinners, Christ still came down from Heaven and eventually died for us!

God has fulfilled and shown his promises to us by sending Jesus to us. The more you study the Old Testament, the more you realize it’s about the coming of our Messiah. There are about 300 prophesies about Jesus in the Old Testament and all these prophesies have been fulfilled in the manger at Bethlehem.

Shouldn’t you rejoice of Gods other promise of eternal life to whoever believes in Jesus. This is why the sky was filled with angels rejoicing singing “Glory to God in the highest” because God loves us enough to send Jesus to redeem us. Is there any other greater gift? The only begotten Son of God given to us as the greatest gift of all in Jesus Name Amen

Without Excuse

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

What is your excuse for not accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? God is telling us there is evidence all around from his creation and we are without excuse! Ever since God spoke the Heavens and Earth into existence his qualities have been clearly seen

Jesus said “Since you have seen me you have seen The Father (John 14:9) God sent his only begotten Son here and dwelt among us. Yet still many deny the existence of our Lord Jesus and deny our Creator and Heavenly Father. Why? Because they walk in darkness, the dark hates the light. The evidence is overwhelming that you are a creation of God and so is everything that came into existence.

So as you celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, celebrate the clear evidence that God is in complete control. Celebrate that even though we were sinners , Christ still came here to Earth and died for our sins. Because God is love and we are without excuse in Jesus Name Amen

What is CHRISTmas?

One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Romans 14:5-8

What does Christmas mean to you? There are some Christians who choose to condemn the celebration of Christmas and those who choose to acknowledge it, who is the judge? There are some who point out that Christmas has some pagan roots but others who use this opportunity to acknowledge our Lord and Savior. The more I search for the meaning of Christmas, the more I realize it’s a personal decision just as is our relationship with God. Nobody can be converted to a Christian, it’s a personal relationship with our God, just the same nobody can be told what the true meaning of Christmas is.

We can choose to ignore Christmas and pretend it doesn’t exist, but does that lead people to Christ? To the lost that will never hear a scripture or know a Church, can they benefit from not hearing the gospel of the Nativity? Some who claim its not Biblical to celebrate the birth of Christ need to reread the scriptures. Angels, Shepherds, and Wisemen came to bow down to the new born King and rejoice for its the salvation of the human race.

So me and my family will celebrate Christmas and use it to glorify the name and birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. If you agree or don’t agree, its ok. One day we will all stand before Jesus and give account of our actions. May the peace of God rule your hearts this Christmas Season in the name of the Prince of Peace Amen

Message of Christ

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. Colossians 3:16

This Christmas Season we can have the message of Christ dwell among us, let everyone know that Jesus, our Messiah, was born of a virgin to save us from our sins. The promised Son of God became Flesh and dwelt among us. It’s

One of my favorite parts of the Christmas Season is the songs, there are so many great songs of worship from Away in The Manger to Silent Night to Joy To The World. When these sing these songs, sing with gratitude in our hearts for everything God has given us, including our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

 

Christmas is a great time to teach our Children and others of the Nativity story and let your children know they do have a Savior and Hope for the future. If we don’t teach our children, nobody will.  Let the message of Jesus , the King of King, being born dwell among us all in Jesus Name Amen

Arm of God

He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. Luke 1:51

Who is the arm of God? When Mary received the Good News from the Angel Gabriel that she was chosen to give birth to The Messiah, she Glorified God with her song. The Arm of God is Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God in Flesh

See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power, and he rules with a mighty arm. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him. Isaiah 40:10

Isaiah 40 prophesies about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, he is referenced as “The Mighty Arm of God’ among other things. When we understand this analogy, we then begin to understand The Trinity. As Jesus said “I and the Father are One” (John 10:30) He is the extension or branch of God in The Flesh. Jesus said he sits at the right hand of God (Mark 16:19) There is no greater power or authority than the right hand of God

When you understand this, you understand the importance of Jesus Christ coming to the world to save our sins. The Salvation of God sent in the Flesh, The Arm of God extended to the world to save it from our sins. Without our Messiah there is no Salvation, give praise and thanks to our Lord this season in Jesus Name Amen
