Subject: Witness

Often it occurs that Christians grow sad about the lost going away for an eternity. It especially seems to come up when there are people we have feelings for. I truly hope that all people will hear the gospel and listen. I long for a moment to have a clear presentation opportunity with anyone who will listen and give a fair hearing. The gospel contains the power to save. Don't be ashamed. (ROM 1:16) SHARE WHAT YOU'VE SEEN. 1 John 1:3 once more into the breach and maybe we'll save some...

Subject: Truth = God's Word

Gentiles don't speak this truth, God laughs lol!!!<br><br>Romans 11:25-36<br><br>25 (AA)Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers:[d] (AB)a partial hardening has come upon Israel, (AC)until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written,<br><br>(AD)“The Deliverer will come (AE)from Zion,<br> he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”;<br>27 “and this will be my (AF)covenant with them<br> (AG)when I take away their sins.”<br><br>28 As regards the gospel, they are enemies for your sake. But as regards election, they are (AH)beloved for the sake of their forefathers. 29 For the gifts and (AI)the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For just as (AJ)you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, 31 so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now[e] receive mercy. 32 For God (AK)has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all.<br><br>33 Oh, the depth of the riches and (AL)wisdom and knowledge of God! (AM)How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!<br><br>34 “For (AN)who has known the mind of the Lord,<br> or (AO)who has been his counselor?”<br>35 “Or (AP)who has given a gift to him<br> that he might be repaid?”<br><br>36 For (AQ)from him and through him and to him are all things. (AR)To him be glory forever. Amen.<br><br>Just because you think God doesn't do things doesn't mean it's true!!!

Titus 2:11-14<br><br>11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, <br>12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, <br>13 waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, <br>14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.<br><br>Grace is unmerited favor. <br><br>Why do we go to church to be bashed for not doing everything the pastor wants us to do? It's not about what the pastor has going on, it's about the power of God!!!!<br><br>Give people the unmerited favor free of charge and quite thinking it's for your own gain Mr. Pastor. Get real and quite thinking God wants you to scold people. Tell them about Jesus and what He's doing!!!<br><br>Either I'm trying to take focus off your works and put it on the power of God that saves witch is Jesus. Or I'm preaching to the choir. Church is a choir of the saved. Grace says trust more. Religion says try more. If you preach trying more then that makes people tired. When you preach trust more that makes God the reliable source to put it in man's wisdom.... Training isn't coming from the training, it's coming from the source of the grace of God, even Jesus the Messiah!!!<br><br>There is a line between desceat and truth. Help us to perceive what Godliness is Jesus!!!<br><br>It ain't about miracles or wisdom, it's about love.

Subject: Prayer in faith

Here is the closing logical point of this argument. If we are no good and yet we provide this reasonable accommodation when asked, then God who is good will be that much MORE good to them that ask Him. We say please father and He gives good, reasonable accommodation. Notice he give what is good, not necessarily what we ask for. Sometimes we don't know what is best. However, this has messed a lot of people up, stopping them from believing or making excuses when they don't get what they have asked for. God does not need us to make excuses for Ask and believe and then if by summer chance you don't get what you asked for then adjust. Don't cushion the blow by asking for what appears to be good things and then saying, well if it's your will... God always desires to heal etc. It is possible it is not for the best but that is truly up to Him. Saying so may be nice but we should not use it as a crutch so we can feel better if and when we don't get the healing we asked for. If we do that then what we are really asking for is the better feeling or our ability to adjust and he will give that instead. Don't short circuit His amazing willingness to answer prayers. Don't pray pridefully but know His good character and His desire to give good things. Believe He will do it. If He chooses not to, don't insert the verdict in His to mouth, wait for, that reveal patiently and reverently.

Subject: Godly discipline

This is why we discipline ourselves for the purpose of Godliness because Godliness is worthwhile. Because it holds promise (good things) for the present life and also for the coming life... It's wonderful to know that we can impact the life to come, that it is within our control in some small aspect. God's grace often makes us so grateful and at the same time so overwhelmed but we can actually make an eternal difference by disciplining ourselves for Godliness.<br><br>for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.<br>1 Timothy 4:8 NASB1995<br><br>https://bible.com/bible/100/1ti.4.8.NASB1995<br><br>https://bible.com/bible/100/1ti.4.8.NASB1995

Subject: Known and Nourished

This last Sunday I preached a sermon on being Known and Nourished. The basic gist of this was explaining a way to receive a good report before the Lord, having done what was required of us and also being nourished on the word of God. The verses were 1 Tim 3:14-4:6. This message has led me to memorize the things that I am supposed to be talking about. I know there are a lot but here are some on a list. 1-Jesus was revealed in the flesh. 2 He was seen by angels (at birth, at death and Peter says as the the answer to the mystery the angels had longed to solve. 3 He was proclaimed among the nations. We are still called to be doing this. 4 He was believed on in the world. Thank God this has happened because herein is salvation. 5-He arose in glory. They watched him go back into heave. He makes intercession for us now. This isn't it though-added to the list was the knowledge that some will fall away due to paying attention ( via hypocrisy) the teaching of deceitful evil spirits and the doctrine of demons. This includes false righteousness and selfish ambition. This, the world pushes hard. Note: This leaving of some is part of what we are to declare, even the how and why of it. Also, that by so doing we WILL find ourselves properly nourished and graced with a good report before God. I love it when the word is a simple recipe that I can follow and in this post I have just done it. It wasn't the first time ever or even the first time today but it is what I am supposed to be talking about, so....there I did.

when does GOD get a say? when does GOD get to save? when does GOD make a way? when does GOD get to be GOD first then we can make our notion second.<br><br>The world keeps spinning with GOD and the world keeps spinning when we choose without GOD, but putting GOD FIRST in everything then you yes you; who chooses to turn or return back to GOD, CREATOR, MASTER, HUSBAND, only through the LORD JESUS the CHRIST, KING, AND MESSIAH then you give the world and GLORY back to him.<br>Then you are under HIS PEACE, HIS LOVE, HIS JOY, HIS FAITHFULLNESS, HIS ENDURING PATIENCE TO BE PATIENT, and follow HIM👍✝️🙏☝️.

Subject: Your conscience

We haven't ate things that make us unclean, we've ate with an unclean conscience.<br><br>Matthew 23:26<br>Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, so that the outside may become clean as well.<br><br>Every time we've enjoyed things like food while in a guilty state, while not right with God, something inside our soul knew it. The image we bare of God within knew it. The spirit within us is alive, It is all together another world or realm within us. Anything that was harmful and intended harm towards us had power to destroy because of our conscious being dirty.<br><br>The bible speaks in depth in it's pages about how the blood of animals couldn't have the power to wash these things completely away. Only the blood of the Son of God can. The law and it's rules and regulations found in the bible were not only regulations for Israel to follow to keep a clean conscience so God could bless them for obedience in the sight of wicked angels and wicked nations, but it is also a story built for the stage here called the earth where God could work out His master play. A script He did write that no human could make up. A redemption so filled with hope, and the power of His loving faithfulness being fully displayed in His own Son our savior, our Adonai(Lord) Jesus.<br><br>We are all guilty of sin. We are all guilty of blaming the most innocent one for our own mistakes. But He wants to hear you say it. He wants to hear you acknowledge where you went wrong, He wants to forgive you and heal you with His ointment of life. His Son is His ointment of life. He's the only reason we live, breath, move, and talk and laugh and love. There is no other way, there is no other salvation other then in His Son's name. All other things are teachings from a false spirit and a misleading spirit. The only thing that can give you eternal life is you trusting in God's testimony about His Son!

I got three more posts this year, if I have more then that, that shows I'm not perfect, and I'm being more perfected or matured by the living God through his holy spirit one step at a time to live in His Righteousness.<br><br>if you need encouragement Brothers send a friend request, I do not speak on Facebook but on messenger, or text, or even call you, but that's all I can do.<br><br>I and we at our church and other churches have God living resources to help each other but you never know if you don't ask to see what is available.<br><br>my next post will be about those resources, but for now I only reach out to the men or becoming men, or anyone but women I can pray or encourage you but I'll lead you to another woman that can help you with your resources.<br><br>If men would just live right for God and women would live just right for God then they would compliment each other. for we are all needy, and we need each other to survive in a world of sin, death, and suffering.<br><br>See trying to find out who you are leaves a road of uncertainty, misery, victory, defeats, courage, and strength but in the end the road just keeps going and there's no way out.<br><br>But but being who you are or who you are supposed to be there is a joy that no reason do you have to conform to (like give me: a reason for God saving me at 23 and never let me go despite how I could never be all that he asked me to be but by his Mercy HE IS FAITHFUL NOW, AND ALL THOSE BEFORE US TO THIS VERY DAY AND TO OUT FORVER ETERNITY TO BRING US HOME AND BE FOREVER PERFECT WITH CHRIST TO THE TRINITY BE THE GLORY, now give God: a reason, give Jesus: a reason, His birth, His walk and His sacrifice, give the Bible: a reason where we find THE TRUTH not what people just read; but has promises and his endured faithful words in the holy scriptures that have stood the test of time.)<br><br>So that was a lot but sometimes you just have to lay that groundwork so whatever it stands on; it does not fall and if you lay ground work on which is eternal and perfect, houses fall, kingdoms, fall but the foundation can never fall, and sometimes if you continue on the foundation; houses shake, Kingdoms shake, and stuff comes and goes, but what was put in the house that is eternal will last if it falls or not.<br><br>So GLORY TO GOD here are five reasons we may do things by serving, giving, and either worshiping God or I'm finding worship in someone else that is not the True God.<br><br>1. we do it for ourselves if you're an eternal brother and sister, a born again believer in the Lord Jesus, you need that encouragement, you need that reminder that he loves you and if you follow him, he is faithful and just to cleanse you of all unrighteousness, you have been made right by Christ, to live right, do right, and be right in the Lord Jesus eyes, you cannot figure it out,,, just live for him wherever you're at because it is His Righteousness not yours, and if you are lost and dead and forsaken by God yes he is merciful to all but his Spirit is not with everyone; To Have Him,,, believe on the Lord Jesus confess to him that you need HIS salvation now and eternity and live for Him and you will be saved only by HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS.<br><br>2. do it for others everybody's hurting and broken, and sometimes even when they are doing good a reminder of where that goodness comes from<br><br>3. do it for your neighbors your church right beside you, reminding them they're not alone, that were in this suffering and victorious walk together and all the churches that proclaim Jesus is Lord all around the world.<br><br>4. do it for THE TRINITY alone... out of a glad and thankful heart to proclaim His Righteousness for all kingdoms dark and almost light, past, present, and future. For is AND ONLY BEEN ONE KINGDOM THAT NEVER GOES DARK THAT IS THE TRUE LIGHT FOREVER AND EVER.<br><br>5. THIS IS IN CAPS NOT SHOUTING BUT PROCLAIMING THAT EVERYDAY EVERY SECOND WE ARE NOT INTERESTED, NOT THINKING, NOT ACKNOWLEDGING, NOT 100% LIVING AND GIVING OUR LIVES TO THE HOLY GOD AND TO ALL THAT THEY HAVE CREATED. SO 2000 YEARS AGO AND EVEN BEFORE THAT GOD WAS ALWAYS MERCIFUL INTERVENING, EXCEPT THIS DAY NO MATTER WHAT THE WORLD THINKS OR BELIEVES THAT SAVIOR CAME, A TRUEBORN KING, TRULY RIGHTEOUS, TRULY HOLY, TRULY THE LIVING GOD, AT THE END OF HIS LIFE BEING THE SECOND ADAM THAT WAS BORN INTO SIN YET SIN NOT, CRUSHED AND DEFEATED SIN IN THE MESSIAH THE LORD JESUS AS A SPOTLESS, PERFECT LAMB ON THE CROSS, AND DIED FOR 3 DAYS HIS STORY ENDED, BUT WHEN HE ROSE AGAIN HE FULFILLED THE SCRIPTURES AND NOW WAS AND ALREADY IS THE CREATOR AND KING OVER EVERYONE NOW AND FOREVER.<br><br> SO TURN AND CONFESS OR RETURN AND CONFESS SO THE TRUE KING GOD'S HOLY SPIRIT CAN BE YOURS TODAY.
