IF SATAN PUTS THOUGHTS IN YOUR MIND THAT MAKES YOU NOT WANT TO BELIEVE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS, DON'T FEEL BAD, HE HAS BEEN DOING THIS THROUGHOUT TIME. JESUS SAID THAT JOHN THE BAPTIST WAS THE GREATEST MAN THAT WAS EVER BORN (JOHN 11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist.) AND SATAN DECEIVED HIM TO THE POINT THAT JOHN SENT ONE OF HIS OWN DISCIPLES TO JESUS TO ASK HIM IF HE WAS  REALLY THE ONE.  





LOOK HOW JESUS HANDLED THE QUESTION.  LUKE 7:20-22 SAYS When the men came to Jesus, they said, “John the Baptist sent us to you to ask, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?’” At that very time Jesus cured many who had diseases, sicknesses and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind.  So he replied to the messengers, “Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.


JESUS DID NOT TELL THEM THAT HE WAS THE ONE, HE REFERRED JOHN BACK TO THE SCRIPTURE WHERE IT SAYS IN LUKE 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted , to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.



JESUS JUST TOLD THEM TO GO BACK AND TELL JOHN WHAT THEY HAD SEEN AND HEARD BECAUSE RIGHT THEN HE WAS FULFILLING THE SCRIPTURE.  THIS WOULD SHOW JOHN THAT JESUS WAS THE ONE.  SO, WHEN YOU GET DISCOURAGED, GET INTO THE BIBLE AND HAVE FAITH TO BELIEVE GOD AT HIS WORD AND ALL DISCOURAGEMENT WILL FADE AWAY.  JUST TRUST HIM.  HE SAID TO CAST ALL YOUR CARES UPON HIM SO JUST DO IT.





GOD BLESS YOU ALL.  




"ABRAHAM'S CHILDREN" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-06-16

Abraham's Children


June 16th




John 8:37 'I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.'



JOHN 8:33-38



The Jewish people were direct descendants of Abraham. However, as with so many biblical truths, there was much more to the Abrahamic covenant than what a casual glimpse would reveal. In truth, these Jews were not actually a part of the spiritual children of Abraham.

The Holy Spirit revealed through the Apostle Paul in Galatians 3:16 and 29 that God's covenant was to Abraham and his singular 'seed' or descendant, which was Christ. No one ever became an heir of God's promises through his natural birth. Before Jesus gave Himself as an offering for our sin, the Old Testament saints were justified by faith in God's promises concerning the Messiah who was yet to come. After Jesus' death and resurrection, New Testament saints are justified by faith in what Jesus has already accomplished. No one has ever been saved because of who his parents are.

Those who have been born again through faith in Jesus have been circumcised in their heart (Col. 2:11-12) and are the true Jews. They aren't Jews in nationality or religion, but they are the true people of God. Gentiles who are united with Christ in the new birth are now God's people. Anyone who is saved through faith in Jesus is now Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise (Gal. 3:16, 22, 26-29). This leaves no doubt that the Church is now God's chosen people on earth. This does not mean that God has forsaken the Jews. There are still prophesies which apply to the physical nation of Israel which will be fulfilled. However, the New Testament Church, composed of Jews and Gentiles, is now God's kingdom on earth. We are all His.


BEFORE I GET STARTED THIS MORNING, I WOULD LIKE TO WISH ALL YOU DADS OUT THERE A HAPPY FATHER'S DAY.  I HOPE YOUR DAY WILL BE BLESSED WITH ALL OUR KIDS BEING WITH YOU OR AT LEAST CALLING YOU AND WISHING YOU GOOD TIDINGS.  GOD BLESS YOU ALL.  








 

NOW, HOW DO YOU KNOW HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE?  STRANGE QUESTION?  A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD SAY IT IS THE WAY THEY HAVE BEEN BROUGHT UP AND THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TAUGHT RIGHT FROM WRONG.



WELL, THAT MIGHT BE GOOD BUT HOW DOES GOD WANT YOU TO LIVE YOUR LIFE? NOW THAT IS A DIFFERENT QUESTION.  THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW THIS IS BY READING THE BIBLE.  YES, I AM BACK TO READING THE BIBLE.  WELL, IT IS IMPORTANT AND GOD'S WORD IS THE ONLY WAY WE CAN EVER KNOW EXACTLY WHAT GOD'S WILL IS FOR OUR LIVES.




I DON'T CARE HOW YOU WERE BROUGHT UP AND HOW GOOD YOU HAVE BEEN ALL YOUR LIFE, IF YOU ARE NOT DOING GOD'S WILL IN YOUR LIFE, YOU ARE LOSING OUT ON A LOT OF HIS BLESSINGS.  WE ALL NEED TO KNOW IN WHAT DIRECTION GOD WANTS US TO GO. SEE WHAT IT SAYS IN MATTHEW 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  YOU HAVE GOT TO KNOW HIS WILL.  



YOU MIGHT SAY YOU LISTEN TO THIS TEACHER, OR TO THIS EVANGELIST, OR TO THIS PREACHER BUT WHAT IF THEY ARE WRONG?  DO YOU EVER GO TO YOUR BIBLE AND CHECK OUT THE THINGS THEY ARE TEACHING AND DOES IT LINE UP WITH THE WORD OF GOD?  IF IT DOESN'T AND YOU ARE JUST TAKING THEIR WORD FOR IT, YOU BOTH ARE IN TROUBLE.  IN JOHN 17:17, JESUS IS PRAYING TO GOD FOR YOU AND ME AND SAYS "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.". THIS IS IN JESUS' PRAYER FOR HIS DISCIPLES AND FOR US. "SANCTIFY US THROUGH HIS WORD", THAT IS WHAT IT IS SAYING.



NOW IT IS UP TO US.  FIRST WE HAVE GOT TO WANT TO KNOW HIS WORD, BECAUSE THAT IS HIS WILL, AND NOT JUST PLAY AROUND BUT REALLY WANT IT. IN JEREMIAH 29:13 IT SAYS "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."  GOD WILL KNOW IF YOU ARE JUST PLAYING AROUND. HE WANTS SOMEONE HE CAN USE AND DEPEND ON.  WILL YOU BE ONE OF THEM?



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.









DO YOU REMEMBER THE PARABLE IN LUKE 18 ABOUT THE UNJUST JUDGE AND THE WIDOW WHO CONTINUALLY SOUGHT HIM TO AVENGE HER?  THIS IS NOT COMPARING GOD TO THIS UNJUST JUDGE BUT JUST THE OPPOSITE.  JESUS IS CONTRASTING GOD'S WILLINGNESS TO ANSWER OUR PRAYERS WITH THIS UNJUST JUDGE'S UNWILLINGNESS.







WE DON'T HAVE TO CONTINUALLY BOTHER GOD TO ANSWER OUR PRAYERS LIKE THIS WIDOW DID THE UNJUST JUDGE.  GOD LOVES US AND ANSWERS ALL OUR PRAYERS IF WE ASK ACCORDING TO HIS WILL.  JESUS TELLS US THIS IN MATTHEW 7:7-8 "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."  



THE PROBLEM IS THAT WE DON'T BELIEVE HE HAS OR WILL ANSWER OUR PRAYERS.  WE MUST UNDERSTAND THAT AS SOON AS WE PRAY, ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, THAT PRAYER IS ANSWERED. HE DIDN'T SAY ASK AND IT MIGHT BE GIVEN UNTO YOU. HE SAID IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU.  AS TO WHETHER WE WILL BENEFIT FROM THAT ANSWER IS UP TO US.  IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT WHEN YOU PRAYED, YOU COULD HAVE SAVED YOUR BREATH IN PRAYING.  LOOK WHAT JESUS SAYS IN MARK 11:24 "Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them."



LET ME ASK YOU THIS, IF GOD ANSWERED YOUR PRAYER TODAY, WOULD YOU BE READY TO RECEIVE IT?  THINK ABOUT THAT.  HAVE YOU MADE PLANS FOR WHEN YOUR PRAYER IS MANIFESTED TO YOU?  IT HAS BEEN ANSWERED AND YOU HAVE TO USE YOUR FAITH AND BELIEVE.  IF YOU BELIEVE YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT, WHY WOULDN'T YOU MAKE PLANS?  GOD HAS DONE HIS PART AND THE REST IS UP TO US.  YOUR PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED AND THEY ARE JUST WAITING IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM FOR YOU TO HAVE THE FAITH TO HAVE THEM MANIFESTED IN TO THE NATURAL REALM.  RECEIVE YOUR ANSWER TODAY AS IT IS UP TO YOU.



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.





"SONSHIP OR SLAVERY" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-06-15

Sonship Or Slavery


June 15th




John 8:34 'Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.'



JOHN 8:34-36



The devil has been deceiving the world about sin since the Garden of Eden when he told Eve that through sin she could be like God. Time has proven, not only to Eve, but to each one of us, that this is not true. Sin brings death and not life. Jesus is making it clear that sin enslaves. We become slaves not only to the sin itself, but also to the author of sin, the devil. We are either servants of God through obedience or servants of the devil through sin.

Jesus is likening the bondage that sin produces to slavery, while comparing the freedom that comes through serving God to being a beloved son. No one would doubt that being a son is better than being a slave. Likewise, obeying God is better than yielding to sin. True freedom is found only in serving God. There is a false freedom that Satan has been promoting since the Garden of Eden. He has deceived all of us at one time or another into thinking that God is a tyrant who really doesn't want us to enjoy life and consequently has told us not to do certain things. Because we believe this lie, we disobey God (or sin) in the name of freedom.

However, the Word of God and personal experience conclusively prove that the wages of sin is death (Rom. 6:23). Jesus is stripping sin of any glamour with which the devil may disguise it. Sin brings bondage. The only true freedom is found in Jesus. Jesus not only dealt with the original sin that contaminated the human race, but He also dealt with each individual act of sin. Even if an individual could stop all sinning, he could not change his sin nature with which he was born. That's the reason we must be born again.


Warning HELL AWAITS THE WICKED/EVIL


By Wayne Sanelli, 2019-06-15
Warning HELL AWAITS THE WICKED/EVIL

Warning HELL AWAITS THE WICKED/EVIL

TAKE YOUR SALVATION SERIOUSLY.  THE DEVIL IS BRILLIANT AND DECEIVES THE WHOLE WORLD. HE PREACHES ANOTHER GOSPEL THAT NO ANGEL IN HEAVEN EVER PREACHED!


Rev21.8.png

SIN LEADS TO HELL

Many have evil on their tongue and they are hell-bound.  The earth is FULL of evil like never before. God's wrath abides on the earth and there is ONLY one name EVER given unto man to be saved. He is Jesus Christ (Yeshua). Anything other than the God of the bible leads to hell. Hell is a real place. Take your salvation serious NOW!! Sing songs unto the messiah and get saved. Praise his holy name. The earth is deceived. Many will end up in hell which is separation from the TRUE and living God. God knows who the wicked & evil really are. Eventually grace will expire and humans will experience the wrath of God like man has never seen/known before.

WAKE UP NOW. Hell is REAL and it is impossible for the God of Is-real/The Bible to lie. ALL LIARS/EVIL DOERS BE-WARE HELL DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE. MANY ARE DECEIVED! Warning - Hell Exists (Are you storing up treasures for heaven or hell?) This is REAL and the World is GREATLY deceived. Biblical terminology : In the King James Bible, the Old Testament term Sheol is translated as "Hell" 31 times, and as "the grave" 31 times. Sheol is also translated as "the pit" three times. John 3:16 King James Version 16. 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. God gave his only begotten son and people are not aware that we are to honor what Christ did for mankind on the cross. If we can understand what biblical heavenly love really is than that is spiritual grown and maturity. Take away the flesh as Christ said "What is born of spirit is spirit", than spirits do not utilize the flesh for gain, for vanity or for fornication. That is the way/love of God's higher way. Unconditional love from God is the light men reject to understand as even Satin/Demons/Fallen Angels saviors not the things that be of God but of men. When Jesus Christ said I leave you peace but not as the world leaves you peace than in that you may come to understand God's love is WAY beyond mans comprehension. I heard a Rabbi say on a television show that people who died and lived terrible lives are simply none existent and ONLY people who lived GOOD lives are in heaven. Not so! The least MUST be first and unless saved by the Christ they rejected whom is the word of God and the real Jewish Christ they will be in torment when absent from the body unless they repented or God was merciful as he sometimes is. God reserved Angels who fell in chains of darkness awaiting them to be cast down to hell. A man/woman must be born again and God's will is for the Jewish Nation to know their messiah whom some of them have denied, rejected and mocked as well as all men to come to repentance and know his son. God's will is for people to get saved and know the God of the bible/his only begotten son Jesus Christ. To do his WILL instead of their own. So in this very wicked hour as Israel is facing danger like never before/the world is like the days of Noah too as reported in the media the evils around the world are off the scale & people should pray for the lost/Israel to come to know the lord, the true King/TRUE Messiah. And so this blog about hell is updated with some current links as HELL is REAL. See, people cannot understand why a loving God would send people to hell for what the bible calls eternity. Are you REALLY aware how evil beyond comprehension man is. A bag of dirt unto GOD. God is holy and righteous beyond what we human beings can really grasp/comprehend in our carnal minds. His word is TRUTH. God is a God of mercy and love but his word will never pass away. The miracles Christ performed are proof. We cannot take God for granted as multitudes of peoples/nations do. So here are some links on top of this blog that should be read and confirm the biblical account. Don't parish. Seek God's Kingdom. Call upon the name of Jesus Christ (Yeshua) to save you ASAP.















ARE YOU SAVED - DO YOU KNOW THE GOD OF THE BIBLE?




HELL EXISTS. I can tell you hell is real as countless peoples seen it in near death experiences and I can tell YOU Yeshua, (Jesus Christ) is REAL. God has put eternity in man's heart. Turn from sin today. This is the hour to turn to Christ as we are in that end of the age (END DAYS) (END TIMES). THE WORLD IS DECEIVED! There are 55.3 million people that die each year, and 151,600 people die each day, and 131.4 million births per year around the world. People think hell is just a figure of speech, but HELL IS REAL. It is impossible for God to lie and those who are spiritually inclined know the bible is telling the truth. In near death experiences even, people who mocked God seen HELL. Some were able to come back and tell about it.

One woman who shot herself went to hell and she meet Christ who gave her a second chance. So people who do evil one day will find out that the earth was here for a reason. Those who teach evolution will not have the last laugh. God will because he sits on his throne in heaven and the earth is his footstool. Time to get with it and stop sinning because "the soul that sins will surely die." YOU WILL PARISH IF YOU DON'T CHANGE.


There are countless testimonies on hell and that is why God has street preachers and others ministering his word into the world out there to preach the gospel. God created life for his will to be done. Man has been plagued by sin since the beginning when he existed and walked the earth. Today you can see the EVIL GENERATION as it really is. Just as was foretold in scripture. Likened to the day of Noah with sins going through the roof around the world. So many are deceived and so many are truly wicked and hell bound. Time to wake up as we are living in the EVIL DAY. We see prophecies happening right before our very eyes.




Jesus Christ said you can tell the weather but how is it you can not tell the times at hand. It is clear and shocking what we see out there these days. So many wicked and evil people that hate truth and love all the wicked ways of the world rejoice and take pleasure in those defiled and disgusting ways that appose Christ/God. One day that terrible day of the lord will come about. The bible is the truth and man is ignorant and wicked. Are you saved? Hell is NOT popular as in these end times and some people prefer a watered-down gospel. Conviction of scripture/REPENT OR PARISH. Faith comes by listening/reading God's word. And to what the bible has to say about hell, repenting and knowing the word of GOD. Yes hell is not popular but it exists and is NOT a parable but the truth. It is not fiction or myth but very REAL. Man is NOT GOD. Thou shall have no other GODS before me.



Take the time and repent and GET SAVED. Time to turn to the God of the bible.












(PRAY!) Hell does not discriminate. You either LOVE the truth or are deceived and hate the truth. There is a way that appears right unto a man/woman and in the end it is the way of death, the way of hell. Men did not create earth and are not GOD. Christ died for you on the cross/tree. Jesus Christ is the only name given unto man to be saved. Do you know him. Are you following the REAL Christ? He came to seek and save the lost. The earth is deceived and you can find true life in Jesus Christ otherwise born as Yeshua (Emanuel - God is with us). Hate is evil. The evil end up in hell unrepentant, unsaved and wicked all their days. The wrath of God abides on them. God is love and it is true.  (PRAY!) The reason you say the Our Father Prayer is so you don't do evil and parish and also to acknowledge the lord Jesus Christ. We are NOT under the law but the new covenant and grace. Faith is required but we are not to take God for granted or put him second. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Romans 13:9-10 KJV Hell to many is a controversial subject, but it is in fact real. Why do I care? Because those who love God/Christ love others stand with The God of the bible. And it is our duty as believers in messiah, Christians to preach the gospel and tell others the truth. God is real. He is not a myth and his WILL and thoughts are higher than ours.









Some people the blindness blinds them to God's truth/Word. I am forgiving myself and love people regardless but people/unsaved need to adhere to the biblical truth, repent and get saved. There are those wicked hearts which are deceived in the world. They love the world and "gossip" is their best friend. Pride & the flesh is their master & nature. The flesh and music that glorifies the sinful world & Satin they love as I once did too. Shame! The world is deceived as it is written.








When talking about hell we have to stay clear of pagan mythology. God is real and it is impossible for God to lie. The bible is the truth. Turn from sin today. We are not to misuse the gift of life that God gave us. We are to wake up and not take for granted the time at hand. Make no mistake HELL is a real place. Take it seriously and change asap. GET SAVED!!! There is no rest in HELL for the wicked. This is REAL and I plead with YOU to turn from SIN!!! "The lake of fire, mentioned only in Revelation 19:20 and 20:10, 14-15, is the final hell, the place of eternal punishment for all unrepentant rebels, both angelic and human (Matthew 25:41). It is described as a place of burning sulfur, and those in it experience eternal, unspeakable agony of an unrelenting nature (Luke 16:24; Mark 9:45-46). Those who have rejected Christ and are in the temporary abode of the dead in hades/sheol have the lake of fire as their final destination." https://www.gotquestions.org/sheol-hades-hell.html  You MUST be born again. What does that mean and how do I do that? You need to Turn to the God of the bible, and believe on his son Jesus Christ the Jewish messiah. Follow only the Christ/GOD of the bible. Scripture on how to get saved HERE
BETTER YET

Here is some important information about Hell.


The Greek adjective "aeonios," for which so many translations mistakenly use the word "eternal" is derived from the noun "aeon." "Aeon" means "age" or "ages," as in "the mystery which has been hid from ages and generations" (Col.1:26), or in "the ages to come" Eph.2:7. In Greek mythology, Hades is both the land of the dead and the god who rules there. Hades the god (who the Greeks also called Pluto) is the brother of Zeus and Poseidon, who rule the skies and the seas. ... Hades today is sometimes used as a polite term for Hell ("It's hotter than Hades in here!"). When the Hebrew scriptures were translated into Greek in ancient Alexandria around 200 BC, the word "Hades" (the Greek underworld) was substituted for Sheol. This is reflected in the New Testament where Hades is both the underworld of the dead and the personification of it.

Get Saved ASAP!

"GOD'S LITTLE ONES" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-06-14

HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF YOURSELF AS ONE OF GOD'S LITTLE ONES? WELL YOU ARE. LUKE 17:2 SAYS "It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones."  GOD TAKES IT PERSONALLY WHEN SOMEONE HURTS ONE OF HIS CHILDREN.  IT SAYS IN ROMANS 12-19 "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written , Vengeance is mine; I will repay , saith the Lord."




SAUL OF TARSUS, (HIS ROMAN FAMILY NAME WAS PAULUS OR PAUL) WAS PERSECUTING THE JEWS AND EVEN HAD LETTERS FROM THE SANHEDRIN GIVING HIM THE AUTHORITY TO DO THIS.  HE EVEN HELD THE CLOTHES OF THOSE WHO STONED STEPHEN TO DEATH.  WHEN HE WAS ON HIS WAY TO DAMASCUS, JESUS SAID TO HIM, "Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?"  WHEN WE PERSECUTE ONE OF GOD'S CHILDREN, IT IS PERSECUTING GOD, HIMSELF.

 

THINK ABOUT THIS WHEN YOU ARE PERSECUTING SOMEONE.  THE DEFINITION OF PERSECUTE IS "In a general sense, to pursue in a manner to injure, vex or afflict; to harass with unjust punishment or penalties for supposed offenses; to inflict pain from hatred or malignity." ALSO REMEMBER WHEN WE WOULD LIKE TO FIGHT BACK THAT GOD IS TO FIGHT OUR BATTLES.  HE WILL DO A MUCH BETTER JOB THAN WE COULD EVER DO. THINK ABOUT THIS......IF THERE IS NO GOD WHO WILL FIGHT FOR US, THEN TURNING THE OTHER CHEEK WOULD DO NO GOOD.  BUT, IF THERE IS A GOD WHO PROMISES THAT HE WILL TAKE CARE OF THOSE THINGS AND HE WILL REPAY, THEN US DOING IT SHOWS A LACK OF FAITH IN GOD. BE STRONG AND KNOW THAT GOD IS IN CONTROL.

 

DON'T LET SATAN ROB YOU.  THE BIBLE SAYS RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.  USE THE POWER YOU HAVE.  1ST JOHN 4:4 SAYS "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."  BE THANKFUL THAT YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD.

 

GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.


"JESUS PAID IT ALL" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-06-14

Jesus Paid It All


June 14th




John 8:28 'Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.'



JOHN 8:12-30



This is the second of three times that Jesus spoke of Himself being 'lifted up' (1st - Jn. 3:14; 3rd - Jn. 12:32-33). As the scripture explains in John 12:33, this was a reference to crucifixion as the means of His death. The lifting up is speaking of being lifted up from the earth and suspended on a cross in crucifixion. The Jews understood that Jesus was speaking of death.

The crucifixion didn't just happen. It was planned by God. Does this mean that God bears all responsibility and those who were actually instrumental in the rejection and crucifixion of Jesus are not guilty? Not at all. Jesus came to the earth to die in our place and thereby purchase redemption for us. That was His plan but He didn't force anyone to fulfill it. His ministry and message placed Him in direct opposition with the devil and his followers. Their hatred for Jesus caused them of their own free will to crucify Jesus.

God, in all His wisdom, simply knew what man would do and He determined to use their rejection of His Son to accomplish His will. He never controls our will to accomplish His.

If a person truly understands the message of the cross, then he understands grace. Jesus didn't just make a token sacrifice for us. He paid it all. There's no sacrifice that we can make that will add to or replace the sacrifice of Christ. He did it all, and we can thank Him forever!


"WHAT WOULD YOU DO" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-06-13

ARE YOU READY TO DIE FOR JESUS?  IF SOMEONE HELD A GUN TO YOUR HEAD AND TOLD YOU THAT THEY WOULD SHOOT YOU IF YOU DIDN'T DENY JESUS, WHAT WOULD YOU DO.  I WOULD HOPE THAT WE ALL WOULD HAVE THE COURAGE TO NEVER DENY HIM.  DID YOU KNOW THERE ARE PLACES THAT THINGS LIKE THIS ARE HAPPENING ALL THE TIME.  WE ARE SO BLESSED THAT WE CAN STUDY GOD'S WORD WITHOUT THE THREAT OF BEING KILLED.  THE SAD THING IS THAT THERE ARE SOME CHRISTIANS THAT DON'T EVEN READ THEIR BIBLE EVERY DAY AND OTHERS NOT AT ALL.  HOW CAN THIS BE?



I WAS READING ABOUT STEPHEN THIS MORNING AND FOUND A FEW THINGS I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT HIM.  I KNEW THAT HE HAD BEEN STONED BUT DIDN'T KNOW HE WAS THE FIRST MARTYR OF CHRISTIANITY.  HE WAS A DEACON IN THE EARLY CHURCH AT JERUSALEM AND AROUSED THE ENMITY OF MEMBERS OF VARIOUS SYNAGOGUES BY HIS TEACHINGS OF JESUS.  HE WAS ACCUSED OF BLASPHEMY AND AT HIS TRIAL HE MADE A SPEECH DENOUNCING THE JEWISH AUTHORITIES WHO WERE JUDGING HIM AND THEY SENTENCED HIM TO BE STONED TO DEATH.



DO YOU BELIEVE STEPHEN FELT ANY OF THOSE STONES HITTING HIM....I DON'T AND THAT IS JUST MY OPINION.  LOOK WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT THE STONING.  IT SAYS IN ACTS 7:55-56 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.  I BELIEVE THAT BY THE TIME THAT FIRST STONE HIT HIM, HE WAS IN HEAVEN WITH JESUS.  WE ALL KNOW THAT THE BIBLE SAYS THAT JESUS IS SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD BUT THIS SAYS HE WAS STANDING UP FOR STEPHEN.  I BELIEVE JESUS WOULD DO THE SAME FOR US IF WE DIDN'T DENY HIM AND DIED BECAUSE OF IT.



PAUL IS ANOTHER ONE THAT WAS NOT AFRAID TO NOT DENY  JESUS.  LOOK WHAT HE SAYS IN ACTS 21:13 Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.  I ASK YOU AGAIN, ARE YOU READY TO DIE FOR JESUS?  JUST THINK ABOUT IT.



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.



"MYSTERY OF THE TRINITY" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-06-13

Mystery Of The Trinity


June 13th




John 8:19 'Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.'



JOHN 8:12-27



The scriptures teach Jesus' oneness with the Father. This oneness is more than singleness of purpose and actually denotes 'a single one to the exclusion of others' as in the statement, 'There is one God' (1 Tim. 2:5).

This truth is so well established in scripture that some people make no distinction between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit but believe they are simply one God expressing Himself in three different ways. However, Jesus makes a distinction between Himself and His Father here and uses Himself and His Father as two different witnesses to fulfill the requirement of Deuteronomy 17:6. Jesus would have been deceiving these Jews if there was no distinction between His Father and Himself; and yet, they are one (Jn. 10:30; 1 Jn. 5:7). This is a great mystery and yet a very well established fact in scripture.

One of the great statements of the Old Testament from Deuteronomy 6:4 says, 'The Lord our God is one Lord.' We do not have three Gods, but one God, clearly identifiable as three persons. This is a great mystery, which has not been adequately explained. Scriptures reveal the truth of the Trinity, but make no attempt to explain it. We simply accept this revelation as it is, until we know all things, even as we are known (1 Cor. 13:12).

Jesus said that the witness of His Father was the greatest testimony of who He was. Everyone can hear His testimony of Jesus through the scriptures.

Moses and all the Old Testament prophets spoke of the coming of Jesus, and Peter said the written word of God was a more sure word of prophecy than the audible voice of God. Read the Word today.
