If you have not asked Christ into your life, the essential gospel is that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and that He was raised on the third day (1 Cor. 15:3-4).  Believing this is the only qualification for salvation.  We are sinners in need of a savior.  Jesus died for our sins, and to prove that His death was sufficient for us,  God raised Him from the dead on the third day. Believing in our heart that God raised Him from the dead is our assurance that He will raise us, too.
 3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, (1 Cor. 15:3-4).

I don’t know why but it still amazes me how backwards things are these days.  God’s word tells me this is what we would be seeing, but yet it still stops me, stunned, when I see it.

What the world calls tolerant is really intolerant.  What is called good is evil.

He is right this is a cultural war on christianity.  They are intimidating us, calling us names, and insulting our beliefs & values.  Yet they are the tolerant.  We (Christians) are intolerant.

They are killing millions of babies in the womb, destroying the family unit, and launching incurable diseases onto our society and yet they are called good.  We (Christians) are evil.

God warned us of this time but he also promised, when we saw these things, His Son’s return would be near.

Come quickly Lord Jesus!

STOP taking Pastor Dennis Terry out of context. He said NOTHING wrong!

by The Right Scoop

***UPDATED***

I’m so tired of group think.

The left has gotten themselves in an uproar over comments made by Pastor Dennis Terry at a church-campaign event for Rick Santorum, and even some on the right are accepting their false premise. First, watch the video if you haven’t seen it:

Now let me ask you what was wrong with anything Pastor Terry said? Well if you ask those on the left, they say he’s telling non-Christians and liberals to get out of America. But that’s not at all what he said. Allow me to properly phrase his so-called controversial comments the way he delivered them:

The thing I love about Jack Kelly’s articles is the simplicity with which he peels back so many layers of the onion (layers of scriptural truth/meanings).

The topic of this article is so very important during these last days that are so filled with deception.  It regards our salvation.

We not only need to know “how we are saved” but why it works the way it does.  It reveals the genius of God.

Jack lays it out beautifully and by knowing “why”, your belief and faith will be strengthened.  Just as study of prophecy strengthen’s our faith.

Enjoy!

God Bless!

Believe in Your Heart

by Jack Kelly

If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead you will be saved (Rom 10:9).

We’ve all confessed (give assent to or acknowledge) with our mouths that Jesus is Lord and understand its importance to our salvation, but what about the “believe in your heart” portion of the verse?

In Romans 10:10 Paul goes on to say that it’s with our heart that we believe and are justified. The Greek word translated justify is from dikaios which means to be innocent or holy. The King James translates this word “believe unto righteousness” meaning that our belief in the resurrection is what brings us our righteousness, allowing God to regard us as though we’re innocent of any sin and therefore holy.

The key contributor to the fog of deception that has enveloped this planet is the “media” (at least the key worldly contributor).  It has taken many forms.  There is the actual re-writing of history or the facts.  There is the well know concept of “spinning” of stories or redefining/omitting certain statements or facts.  And then there is the most egregious which is completely ignoring stories or facts that have surfaced.

It is the latter that is discussed below.  I am simply stunned at how we can know so little about the most powerful man in America.  I don’t care which party, race, or religion they hail from.  It is astounding the complete blackout that has occurred on his past.

Not just ignoring, but legally and illegally working to freeze/destroy any information that would give insights into his past.  Coupled with this complete blackout is the complete lack of desire to know the truth or facts about him.

So many people here on this little planet could care less to know who he really is and what he has stood for in the past.  It even goes further that people are aggressively attacking and smearing anyone that raises the question.  It is as if you are a leper and lunatic for even asking the question.

It is not of this world, it is supernatural, people are blinded to what is happening right in front of their eyes.

It is really spooky!

We are definitely living in the last days!

May God Bless us and keep us safe!

The Day the Media Died…

This was the day the media died – officially.

The most well-read news story anywhere got no mention on Fox News, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, the New York Times or any other so-called “mainstream” news outlet – a laughable adjective.

The story wasn’t overlooked. It was deliberately spiked. The media knew it was coming. They didn’t want any part of it.

But it gets worse.

Big time talk-radio was tipped off on the story, as well – in advance. They didn’t bite, either. Too hot.

Thank God for Matt Drudge – who placed it at the top of his page. That’s how millions got the first-person, eyewitness evidence that Barack Obama was helped through Harvard by the family of domestic terrorist Bill Ayers back in the late 1980s. You remember him – just a guy from the neighborhood, Obama told us in 2008.

It may seem like hopelessly bad news that the U.S. media – even much of the so-called “alternative” media – are so tightly controlled. But it’s not. The good news is that a story like this can still be read and seen by millions despite the control. It can still be bigger than any of the pap being dished out by so-called “news organizations,” which are sometimes no more than gatekeepers guarding their own narrow special interests.

When ever Joel lays out the relationship between prophecy and the events we are seeing today, I tend to listen.  He has always stayed true to God’s Word on the topic, which is why I think he has such a good track record.

The quote from the host Pastor of the conference really summed up well the feelings I have been having recently.

“It seems that there is a sense in the spiritual air we breathe that things are unraveling quickly. The slide is not unstoppable. It will take a great awakening, a supernatural intervention, an act of God, to turn us back from the precipice toward which we run.”

Time is Short, we need to step up our effort of outreach as a church, it is no time for our churches to be asleep at the wheel.  The Rapture draws near!

God Bless!

PREPARE CHURCHES FOR INEVITABLE: America, Israel and the Church are at risk

February 13, 2012
By Joni B. Hannigan, Managing Editor, Florida Baptist Witness

JACKSONVILLE (FBW)—The handwriting is on the wall and war between Iran and Israel is imminent, Joel Rosenberg, an evangelical Christian and New York Times best-selling author, told the last session of the First Baptist Jacksonville Pastors’ Conference Jan. 29.

“War is coming,” Rosenberg said. “You and I are living in an extraordinary moment in one of the most dangerous moments in the history of our country; one of the most dangerous moments in the history of Israel and the Middle East; and one of the most dangerous moments in the history of the church.”

And the question is, “Are we ready for what could be coming?”

The video in the link below is short but backed full of wisdom.

The two items that stood out most was the belief some are preaching that it is not possible to follow the 10 commandments and that they were “nailed to the cross” and that we no longer fall under their influence.

This couldn’t be further from the truth.  It is our lack of studying the bible that has led so many astray.  Here is the scripture that references the topic.

When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross (Col 2:13-14).

The key focus of the message is sin.  How we are forgiven for all sins (past, present and future) under the new covenant that he was establishing with the church through His Son’s death on the cross.  We are no longer saved through adherence to the law (like the Jewish people) but through faith and belief in Jesus Christ, our savior.  The law is still valid, how else can we tell if we sin and need to repent.  It is still the way we should aim to live.  It is the way Christ lived, following the 10 commandments.

Jesus multiple times spoke of the commandments and their importance.  Paul also spoke at length about “the law” which is front and center represented by the 10 commandments as well as the old testament.  (Romans) He stated that without the Law, we do not know what sin is and that we need to repent.  It is not the law the makes us sin, we are all sinners, but without the law we would not know the standards we are measured against.

We would not know that we are sinners and in need of a savior.  We are never “good” enough as we are all filled with sin, believers and unbelievers.  It is the believers that through the Law and Jesus’ teachings know they need a savior and that they have sinned.

This is where so many fail in preaching God’s word to unbelievers, we must first show them that they are sinners just like us and then it will make sense why they need a savior.

If someone does not know they are falling from a plane, it would not make sense as to why they need a parachute.

Something to ponder…

Amazing video, I think Ray Comfort drills into the true basics that a lot of us Christians have missed or forgotten through all of the noise and distractions (deception) this world throws at us.  As I watched it, I could see myself and friends I know in the position of the two young believers he is interviewing.

It is so important, and counter intuitive to this world, to remember we are not to put our “faith” in ourselves but in Jesus Christ (God).  We are to keep our eyes on Him and not this world.  We cannot save ourselves through being “good” or even repenting.  We are all sinners and no one is good enough.

It is only through faith in Jesus and His gift to us through His death on the cross.  He overcame death and is preparing a place for us to be with Him always.  He sent us the Holy Spirit to be sealed, yes sealed, within us always.  No one can remove it.

It is the simplest message and promise but very easy to forget or overlook.

God’s Word, the Bible, is inerrant.  The translation I like calls it “God Breathed”.  It has never been wrong and verifies itself through prophecy.

Make sure to watch the video.

God Bless!
