DO YOU WANT TO DIE TWICE?

DO YOU WANT TO DIE TWICE 15

                                                     DO YOU WANT DIE TWICE?

The Bible tells us, “As it is appointed for men to die once (physical death), but after this the judgment. [Hebrews 9:27]

In the book of John Jesus tells us, “I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.” (From physical death to spiritual life)[John 5:24]

He goes on to say “for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.”

When Jesus was crucified and was raised from the grave, graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had died were raised; and came out of the graves and appeared too many. [Matthew 27:52-56]

In Luke 16:22-31, Jesus tells the story of the rich man and a poor man. The rich man died and was buried. The poor man died also. But the poor man (Lazarus) was carried by angels to Abraham’s bosom.

Verse 23 reads that the rich men being in torments in Hades (Hades is the Greek term translated “hell”) he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. Then he shouted to Father Abraham have pity on me send Lazarus to dip his finger in water and cool my tongue because I am in anguish in these flames.  Abraham tells him in the 26 verse, that is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to there cannot, nor can those from there pass to us and the rich man cried out for mercy but no mercy was given.

If you do not think it is a hell, you should read Luke and see what the Bible says about hell.

John tells us, that he saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and first earth had passed away, also there was no more sea. Then he saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a beautiful bride prepared for her husband.  He heard a loud voice from heaven saying,

“Behold the home of God is now among His people! He will live with them, and they will be His people and God Himself will be with them. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

The One sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making all things new!” Then He said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” He also said, “IT IS FINISHED!” “I am the Alpha, and the Omega-the Beginning and the End.”

“To all who are thirsty I will give the spring of the water of life without charge.”

“All who is victorious will inherit all these blessing and I will be their God, and they will be My children.”

This is the second death. You have a physical death then you have spiritual death.

But the cowardly, unbeliever, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, and those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their doom is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur.

In the last book of the Bible, Revelation, in the last chapter Jesus is speaking:

“I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to everyone according to his work.”

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

Do not wait for tomorrow, you can know RIGHT NOW that you will live again. Just ask God to come into your life RIGHT NOW! Let Him take over your life, tell Him that He is your God and you are His child. Amen

PAUL SPEAKS TO THE ROMANS

paul

                             Paul Speaks to the Roman (Part 1)

 

Look at the cover of this letter.  You will see two different pictures.

One is of people, happy and reaching out to God and the other is of people wondering what is the Good News Paul is talking about.

Yes! Paul is talking to us today.  We are just as the Romans were in Paul’s days.  When you read the book of Romans, you see where Paul was addressing believers, nonbelievers and the ones who thought they knew it all, the ones who lived by the law.

Let me say first that the Book of Romans is what I call the base. It comes right after Acts, after Paul had received the Holy Spirit: with the power that gave him boldness to speak God’s Word.

Read what Paul tells each one of them.

Paul encourages the young believers in Roman to stay Holy and do not let anyone change them. He tells them how he prays for them day and night.

Paul identifiers what is God’s Good News. Romans 1:16-17

It is the power of God to bring salvation to everyone who believes; for the Jews first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

Paul tells that we know right from wrong, “that the unrighteousness man knows because what may be known of God is manifested in them, for God has shown it to them.”  (It is in your DNA).

God is angry at sinful, wicked people who push the truth away.

You know the true, you see Him in everything. You can clearly see His invisible qualities, His eternal power, and divine nature.  Therefore, you have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God.

Yes, you know God but you want worship Him or give thanks to Him.

You try to justify yourself by made-up foolish things of what God must be like. Calling yourself wise, you became an utter fool.

You worship the things that are created and not the creator. You call what is right, wrong and what is wrong, right. You try to fit your own desires.

Is God angry with you? Yes

Is there price to pay? Yes

If you are believer or a non-believer, remember that God is reading your heart, so please don’t just say something. If it is not in your heart you will do better not saying anything to justify yourself.

God loves you and He doesn’t want to lose you but He will let you go if you don’t change your heart. It is your free will. There is freedom in our Lord through Jesus Christ.

Here is what to pray:

Lord come into my life. I will make You my Lord and I’ll become your child. Teach me Your ways. Amen

Let be one of first to welcome you into the family.

God Bless you all

USHERING IN THE HOLY SPIRIT?

         Ushering in The Holy Spirit?

 

In many churches, they try to tell you about ushering in the Holy Spirit, but look at what Jesus said to the man that came looking for the Holy Spirit.

It was a man of the Pharisees named Nic-o-de’mus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher that comes from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered and said to him. “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nic-o-de’mus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old?  Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born? Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.” John 3

John 4:24 God is Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth.”

In John 15, Jesus Himself tells us that Holy Spirit dwells with us and will be in us.

That means wherever you are the Spirit is also. Therefore, when you walk into a room, no matter what is happening in that room, you have the Spirit of truth with you, you yourself can change the atmosphere in that room. You can bring peace, joy, love, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control wherever you go.

As a believer you are never alone, you are not walking alone, you have the Spirit that moves around you and lives in you.

When you walk into God’s house, the Holy Spirit should be already there, if not, you bring Him in with you. There is no need ushering Him in.

If you want to have the Holy Spirit and His power to live in you, then look at what Jesus said:

“You have not because you ask not,” look for Him, you will find Him, knock, and the door will be open.

Just say: Holy Spirit come inside of me, set me free of all fear and bring me into all truths.

That is how you find Him. You just ask.

God Bless You,
