He is the King of kings, LORD of Lords.
He is coming back one day, just as He said He would.
He’s coming back the same way as we saw him leave, just as the Bible says.
In that day you will not have another chance to repent.
Today is the day of salvation.
Don’t miss this moment of VISITATION, but come while He is calling.
A Good Person — A Nice Person
Have you, yourself, ever lead someone to Christ?
If you haven’t, you are among “well over 90%“ of all Christians. Everybody has their reasons why they have not won souls, yet The Bible says he who wins souls is wise.
I was thinking of my brother-in-law this morning. My sister had passed away in 2011, but while she was still alive I had asked him about his soul, about his right standing with God.
He took his wallet out of his back pocket and pulled out a card from a Billy Graham Crusade to prove that he was a Christian. He was no more living for Christ at that time than any other lost sinner!
How can I tell that, exactly like The Bible shows me to be able to discern, there was absolutely no fruit in his life of being a Christian or follower of Christ.
He was a good person, he was a nice person. But there was nothing in his life that showed he was a servant of The Most High God
There was nothing in his life that showed Jesus was his Savior, and He had a relationship with him.
A lot of people think they’ve been saved by saying a prayer, somebody lead them in a ‘Sinner’s Prayer’ and they said it, at one time so they think and actually have been told that they’ll go to heaven, that is a very false salvation.
He really didn’t even know what he did when he said that prayer; he didn’t know what Jesus did for him; he did not know Jesus at all.
We can be so deceived. He was not born-again.
Have you truly been born again, does the fruit in your life show that you have been born again. The Bible says that you are ‘a brand-new creation’.
Jesus said, “When you seek Me with all of your heart you will find Me.” (Jeremiah 29:13)
He also said you must be born again to enter The Kingdom of Heaven. (John 3:3)
The Isaiah 61 anointing is yours if you are Born Again.
Daring Faith: Abraham’s Worship
We all face challenges, obstacles, heartaches, and losses. None of us are exempt.
I wish we could all pull the ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card when it comes to hardships, but unfortunately we will all face difficulties. And as tough as tough times can be, they also provide us with some rather remarkable opportunities to exercise daring faith.
It’s one thing to talk about faith and quote Scriptures on faith and even take steps of faith when things are going really well, but what about when they aren’t?
How do we hope for what God says is possible in situations that seem impossible?
That’s the very question our father of faith Abram, later named Abraham found himself asking.
God promised to make a great nation out of his offspring not when he had a large family with plenty of sons and daughters and grandchildren.
No, God spoke to Abraham of this legacy when he and his wife were still childless.
And yet Abraham didn’t allow his circumstances to decide his faith; He resiliently chose to let God’s words ring true in his heart and mind. He trusted God to be faithful to His promises, and God credited it to Abraham as righteousness.
Not only did Abraham receive God’s promises as true, but he worshipped God for those promises!
Even before God fulfilled His promises to Abraham, Abraham was found building altars to The LORD as an act of faith-fueled worship!
I don’t know what difficulties you are facing, but I do know that God will be faithful to His promises to you! In the midst of your challenges and losses, you can praise God!
You can worship God because He is true to His Word. He won’t let you down! So go ahead and praise Jesus for the break-through before the break-through!
Go ahead and worship God for the blessing before you receive the blessing!
Go on and thank Him for the provision before it even makes its way to you! Go ahead and adore your Savior for the miracle before you even experience it! Much like Abraham, go on and worship God today with daring faith!
