• Today's Message •

Where are we in God's prophetic calendar? We could list many signs that point to the last days, but I will just look at one today. 2 Timothy 3:13 tells us that "...evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived."

Not just in America, but around the world, evil is increasing at a new pace. Christian values are being laughed at and considered out-dated in our present society. New standards of immoral living are now being accepted. The Bible is clear that the new perversions in our world will bring the judgment of God. But our modern society has no regards for the Word of God.

Christian organizations are moving away from sound Bible teachings, and they are accepting and promoting new beliefs that will bring the church to apostasy and separation from God's favor.

Is there an answer? Only if the church returns to prayer, repentance, and the Bible. There is no hope unless the church again seeks sanctification unto God and pursues with a whole heart to live sanctified lives.

It is an individual decision. Which way will you and I pursue?

God's prophetic calendar appears to me to be telling us that our days to make our choice are few. The final trumpet will sound and those prepared will be raptured. I want to be in that number!

What must I do to go to Heaven when I die?

Jesus told Nicodemus, "You must be born again" (John 3:7). You must be born of the Holy Spirit. We enter into this world through the means of natural birth; we enter into Heaven through means of a spiritual birth.

How can I experience this spiritual birth? It is through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus died on Calvary's Cross to pay the ransom for our sins. We must have our sins washed away before we can be born again and before we can enter Heaven's Gate.

Romans 3:23 reads, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Revelation 1:5b says that Jesus, "loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood." When we repent of our sins, Jesus cleanses us from our sins, and we are born again by the Spirit of God. We become a new creation in Christ. We then receive the gift of eternal life, and we have the blessed assurance of making Heaven our home when we die!

If you have never repented of your sins and put your faith in Jesus, then today can be the day of salvation for you. Do not put it off to another day!

“For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Cor. 6:2).

 

The Eternal Future

Listen to the message, "The Eternal Future." Many are talking about finding one's destiny. Our destiny is not to be found in this life. It's the after life that reveals our true destiny.

Read article entitled Expecting His Return.

The Greek word for church, "ekklesia," means "called out." By our very definition as the church, we were not meant to stay around. We have not been assigned to remain here and make this world a haven in which to live. We are pilgrims, passing through; we are called out to be caught up--destined for the rapture of the body of Christ. Destined for an eternal home...more...

Read article entitled Long Journey Home--A Bus Trip through Mexico.

On our first trip to Guatemala in 1981, we had driven a van to the field for a missionary but found it necessary to return to the States on our own. Since there was not enough funds for plane tickets, we bought bus tickets from Guatemala City all the way home to our folks' place in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Our luggage consisted of nine boxes and suitcases, plus carry on things. It was early Friday morning about 6:30 a.m. and we were on our way...more...

Below is a picture of the bus we road from the Guatemalan border to Mexico City. We stopped for a rest at this restaurant.

Jesus Was Sent to Bless Us

Acts 3:26 says that God sent His Son Jesus to bless you.  It says Jesus will bless you by turning you from your iniquities.  Your sin is a poison to your soul.  It is an entrapment to bind you to the flames of the torments of hell.  God wants to bless you by setting you free from the bondage of sin.  He didn’t say Jesus would bless you by giving you large sums of money but rather by turning you from your iniquities.  God does give financial blessings, but the Gospel story centers on the forgiveness of sins—both the bondage of sin and the washing away of sins.

Ample Provision in Christ

There is ample provision in Christ.  There is ample provision for healing.  Jesus healed the multitudes.  He healed them all.  There is ample provision for our spiritual needs.  Christ died for all.  In Acts Chapter 3, the lame man wanted only a little money to buy bread.  But there was more in the storehouse for him than he was aware of.  There was ample provision not only for his healing but also for new joy in his life.  God can give us a new leap, a new walk, and a new praise in our hearts when we partake of His provisions.  When Jesus died on the Cross, He opened an entrance for us into the Holy of Holies that we might take all of our petitions to God.

Desperate for God
by Gene Easley

Psalm 124:1-8, “If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say; 2If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us: 3Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us: 4Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: 5Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.  6Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.  7Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.  8Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth."

The central theme of the Bible is humanity’s need for God and for the salvation that He has provided.  “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:6).  We need a Savior.

Some say we need more self-esteem to be successful.  Others suggest that if one could only discover the formula to get rich, life would be full.  The truth is it is God that we need, and we need Him desperately.  We need God more than we need our daily provision and more than we need man’s approval.  We need Him so much that we must stay full of His Spirit.  We need Him to the extent that we should be praying without ceasing.

We need God when we wake up in the morning.  We need Him when we go to work or to school or to do our daily shores.  If we lose our sense of desperation for Him, we have joined the ranks of those who are slipping away.

We need God so much that we must daily read and study His Word.  We must hear His voice.  We will lose our way except He speak to us.  We need Him so much that we must spend special times in prayer each day that we might stay close to Him.

If any thing could be said about a large percentage of our churches in America today, it is that most of their members don’t realize how much they need God.  We have learned how to be at ease in Zion while the enemy is making great headway in this warfare for the souls of men and women.

May God send to the church a revival of seeking after Him!  Not seeking new methods and new programs but just simply wanting to get closer to God.  We need Him as we have never needed Him before!

Food for Thought

You can't have joy in the church without weeping. You can't be made whole unless you have been broken. A church that has joy, shouting, and victory, will be a church with a lot of weeping and tears and broken spirits before God.

__________

The true Gospel will put a shout in your heart. The true Gospel will cause you to sing praise to God. The Gospel is not dead, dry and boring. It is life and life more abundant. If you have not known that type of Gospel, then maybe you need to come back again to the altar and get a fresh touch of God.

__________

A form of Christianity where Christians are ashamed to be different from the world, is not Christianity. Christianity without transformation is not Christianity. Christianity that follows the fashion of this world is not Christianity. Christianity where we are transformed into the image of His dear Son is true Christianity.

__________

Isaiah 63:10 reads, "But they rebelled, and vexed his Holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them." When God fights against us, the only way we can win that battle is by surrender.
