This Week's Sermon ( 10-29-19 )

" The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?  "   1 Corinthians 10:16
" But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. "   Ephesians 2:13
" How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?  "   Hebrews 9:14
" Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. "   1 Peter 1:2
" But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: "   1 Peter 1:19
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. "   1 John 1:7
" And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, "   Revelation  1:5

" 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. 
Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, 
And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul. 
And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. 
And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. 
"
  Acts 7:55-60

Over the years I have asked people if they were to die today and God asked them why He should let them into Heaven, I have heard everything from, well, I'm not such a bad person, to someone telling me he thinks God would enjoy his company. One guy told me it is because he made a good living, and I've heard other reasons,etc...

Nothing was said about Jesus.

Nothing was said about the blood Jesus shed for us.

This is what I tell people. If God should ask you why He should let you into Heaven, tell Him it is because of the guy standing next to Him, whose name is Jesus.

But we need to believe in Jesus before we die. If we wait until we are standing before God, then it will be too late if we decide then, to believe. We need to believe in God's only begotten Son, Jesus, while we are still in this life.

Paul said,

" For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. "   Romans 14:11

" That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
"
  Philippians 2:10-11

Even people who do not believe in Jesus will someday have to bow the knee to Jesus.

If they decide to believe in Jesus after seeing Jesus, it will then be too late.

How awful having come to realize that everything Jesus said is true and then having to depart and go to hell.

Stephen told the people that accused him of blasphemy that he could see Jesus standing by God's right hand.

My friend, it is only by the blood of Jesus and His grace and mercy and having a repentant heart, acknowledging and confessing that we are sinners, that we will make it to Heaven.

Yes, we must acknowledge that none of us are perfect and need the blood of Jesus and His forgiveness.

I know people who think they have done nothing wrong.

They will be surprised someday.

If we think that we can enter Heaven by our works, we will be in for a big surprise.

Even though Saul, whose name was changed to Paul became a born again believer in Jesus, said even as a born again believer in Jesus,

" This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. "   1 Timothy 1:15

Notice Paul said " of whom I am chief " - not was. He said this in the present tense.

Paul was humble, which is how we should be.

I also know that I'm for sure not worthy to be in Heaven.

But because of acknowledging this about myself and resting my faith in the blood of Jesus and that He is the only begotten Son of God, and trusting in His grace and mercy, I will make it to Heaven.

My parents are in Heaven and my wife is in Heaven because they believed in Jesus.

Keep your faith in Jesus and in Him only.

Jesus literally is the only way to Heaven, not one of many ways, as I have found people are thinking nowadays.

I will believe in Jesus and in Him alone to my dying breath.

Today's Bible Verse Psalm 118: 22-23

" The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. 
This is the LORD'S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.  " 

This Week's Sermon ( 10-15-19 )

" For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:Matthew 6: 14
" So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses. "   Matthew 18:35

" And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. "   Mark  11:25

" But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. "   Matthew 6:15

" But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. "   Mark 11:26

" And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.  "   Ephesians 4:32

My friend, it is important to forgive.

I have a lot to forgive and I have a lot to be forgiven for. 

I choose to forgive those who have offended me so God will forgive me. 

If we think we have commited no sin even as born again believers in Jesus, according to John, we are liars.

" If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 
If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
"  
1 John 1:8-10

Learn to forgive church people who have hurt you as well as the world.

Then you will be forgiven. 

Don't gossip nor backbite any brother or sister in Christ...nor anyone.

If we do gossip and backbite we will give answer to Jesus for every word we said. 

Also, do not take a brother or sister in Christ to the law.

Paul warned against this.

Keep your faith in Jesus.
