I am a believer and what is referred as born again believer/Christian in the Jewish biblical Jesus Christ as described and written about in the inspired written word of God being the bible. I have written some gospel songs and other songs in various categories of music and I play guitar, piano, bass, and other instruments and sing praise songs unto the lord. I honor the lord in various ways. As it is written.
Matthew 16:24 KJV “24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” (What so many refuse/fail to do).
You know the lord Jesus Christ said when you give let not your right hand know what your left hand is doing. There are many ways to give. Announce it not as you may lose your reward. Just give. Give to those who really need it directly if you can. Support those whom are "really" doing the work of God/Jesus Christ and preaching the gospel. My thought is beware of prosperity preachers preaching a lukewarm gospel or get everything you want which is no gospel at all. You can give in many ways.
I'm praising the lord in song and worship. Jesus Christ died and paid the price for your sins in full. You were purchased with a great price and are not your own. We can ignore that fact or accept it. Beware because as it is written
“If anyone’s name was not found written in the lamb’s book of life he was thrown into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:15). WAKE UP!
The gentile believers mostly know the Savor of the world as Jesus Christ known as (Emmanuel - God is with us) Some Jewish believers may know Jesus as Yeshua as written in the Hebrew Bible. As I say I wrote some songs praising the lord. They are around, some on video and some have been heard in the past. Sometimes I praise the lord Jesus on guitar or piano. Hope you can have a listen. Read the bible for yourselves and get to know the inspired, written word of God.
Like other people I came to know Christ when I found out whom Christ was not as I was mostly deceived than I came to know him and who he was/is. It was his doing and not just my questions. I became a seeker for answers and I prayed and turned to the written word of God which directed my path. Christ is the way, the truth and the life. He is real and risen and his gospel is true. The lord Jesus Christ came to seek and save the lost including me and YOU. He said my sheep hear my voice and they obey/listen to me. When you read the gospel and realize that so many people's lives were changed from this one man and you truly believe with your heart as you confess with your mouth you should/may come to discover that the son of the living God is real and there is no one like him. Again he is the Christ/Messiah/Anointed One and the Savior of the world. Don't be deceived. God is real and man is deceived greatly.
Musically speaking since being a child I had a passion and "perhaps" a gift for music. I love to create and write songs. I had/have a gift in sports and music. This includes playing musical instruments. Along the way I improved as I play guitar and wrote my own songs but was ignorant to the gospel. If I had not been I would had focused more on gospel music. The gospel tells us not to condemn and people do this. Use righteous judgment. The words we speak even in songs will matter. Repentance for sin matters greatly. If I have any such thing as talent it is because God gives us gifts. Many people use those gifts to worship the world and find favor with the world. A friend of the world makes themselves the enemy of God. Its enmity with God. Very true. Narrow is the way that leads to salvation. A little leaven leavens the whole lump. You can lose your soul if you hate/reject the biblical truth/Christ and follow the wicked ways of the world. But isn't God a God of love? Does a wicked evil/fallen and sinful world really follow the God/Christ of the bible? Most No! It self-worships itself and even darkness. Men loved darkness rather than light. Get Saved. Christ was mocked, rejected and hated and a man well acquainted with sorrow. And by his very own race/people. He is the rejected MASTER cornerstone. Yet! How many people are deceived? Even the elect would be as written. The lord Jesus Christ is the Savor of the world! There is no salvation in any other! Let me make it clear to YOU hell is real! What will it profit you to gain the whole world and lose/forfeit your own very souls? Wake up!!
Jesus Christ said to " repent and believe in the gospel ". There is a way that appears right to a man/woman. In the end it is the way of death. The lord Jesus Christ’s words are very true. Turn to the God of the bible/Israel. I encourage you to read the KING JAMES BIBLE . If you can get a 1611 copy all the better. I praise the lord in song and I worship God/Christ in spirit & truth. There are people that have been blinded to the glory of the gospel of Jesus Christ the messiah. He is known to a lot of Jewish people/believers in messiah as Yeshua and the gentile’s believers as Jesus Christ. He is REAL and he is RISEN. Seek him. Call on HIM!
I've been writing songs for a very long time and had a great passion for playing various instruments and song writing. Along the way sin was a crutch as I noticed/learned/seen how it affected with heaviness the whole family who understands not!. I once thought all bibles were the same and was blinded to the biblical truth, and I did not know it. But the true living God delivered me to the truth by his word, his spirit and his guidance. I thank all those who prayed. The gospel is TRUE. We are saved by faith alone and we live by grace. When we speak of vanity we are consumed by the things of this world that cannot deliver our souls from darkness and hell/eternal destruction. As Christ said Satin thinks of the things of men. God wants souls saved and people everywhere to "repent and believe in the gospel." See, we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against rulers of darkness blind to our eyes. We need to lean on God's understanding. Some relevant scriptures below.
(Romans 8 L35 KJV) " Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. "
" Truly, the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. " (2 Corinthians 4:4 ; Revelation 12:9 )
" Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels ."
(Mark 8:38 King James Version
The Way, the Truth, and the Life. Who has seen God? Those Apostles were very fortunate to know the real Christ but Judas sold him out.
8 "Philip said to Him, “ Lord, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.” 9 Jesus replied, “Philip, I have been with you all this time, and still you do not know Me? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you, I do not speak on My own. Instead, it is the Father dwelling in Me, performing His works "
Christ won on the cross and the devil knows it. The devils mission is to take your seed away so you will stumble and not be saved but do evil in the sight of the lord then have no salvation. Remain in Christ and if you don't know him read the word of God /the bible and get to know him.
Psalm 100:1-5 ” A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. "
" Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God " (Matthew 5:8). AMEN
Repent and be saved every one of you.
" Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren ." 1 John 3:16 KJV
What must I do to be saved? Great question: Answer HERE
We don't know what testimonies may be true or not but we can listen, watch and learn. Testimonies (1) HERE Testimonies (2) HERE
Look God loves you dearly as he sent his only begotten son to die on the cross so you could be forgiven your sins as he is the lamb that takes away the sins of the world. Please watch the testimonies about him. Many do not know him.
