This Week's Sermon ( 12-21-17 )

" But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 
Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. "   Matthew 1:20-23

" And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  "   Luke 2:10-12

" The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.  "   John 1:29

Jesus is an amazing person.

The Holy Bible teaches there is only one God, not 3.

God took on human form and became a man, was conceived in the womb of the virgin Mary by the Holy Ghost, became God's only begotten Son, actually God becoming His only begotten Son and calling Himself, Jesus.

Jesus said;

I and my Father are one.  "   John 10:30

Jesus is the only begotten Son of God and is God in the flesh.

Jesus, who is also called " Emmanuel " means literally, " God with us. "

This is incredible that God would become one of us.

God knew even before He created this planet we live on that He would have to become one of us and die for us in order to save us from our sins and save us from eternal hell.

God was literally born to die.

My friend, we need to put our faith in this man known as Jesus and believe everything the Holy Bible teaches about Him.

Jesus is our only hope to be saved when we draw our last breath in this earthly life.

Only Jesus alone can save us from damnation in eternal hell.

Jesus came to give us peace in our heart when it comes our time to die.

When we believe in Jesus there is no need to fear what will happen to us beyond death.

We know by what Jesus said we will be safe with Him for all eternity but we must choose to believe in Him and Him alone while we are still here in this present life.

After death it will be too late to change our mind.

Tell others that Jesus is the only way to Heaven as He said He is the only way, not one of many ways.

Keep your faith in Jesus to the end.

This Week's Sermon ( 7-13-15 )

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Isaiah 12:2

 

 

I was quoted this verse with an emphasis on the name “ Jehovah “ by a person from a certain world religion.

His religion teaches that Jehovah is God but is not Jesus.

Over the years I witnessed to a friend who is now past 92 years old and is physically deteriorating fast.

He belongs to this religion I refer to.

A few years ago I told him when it comes time for him to die, make sure he gives his heart to Jesus.

He looked at me and said - “ I'll think about it. “

Noticing how bad he is physically, recently I went to him and said - “ As you know, I have told you this before. Put your faith in Jesus before you die. Make sure He is your Lord and Savior. “

 

My friend, Jesus is Jehovah. He is God. He is the Father and the Holy Spirit, in human flesh, according to the book known as the Holy Bible.

 

Say an author wrote a book in explicit detail on how to achieve a certain goal.

What if readers had various opinions about the author's detailed direction, deciding to accept certain things the author said but rejecting other things the author said and only staying with what the readers chose and decided to agree with.

 

Well, this is how people read the Holy Bible. They accept what they want and reject what they do not like.

This is why we have some world religions that are 'supposedly' based on the Holy Bible and so many church companies and organizations based on the Holy Bible as well.

Everyone interprets the Bible by either accepting or rejecting what they choose to like in it and coming to their own conclusion.

 

This is why Paul said:

One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Ephesians 4:5-6

 

and:

Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: Ephesians 4:13

 

Paul clearly said there is only one Lord, one faith and we are presently not in unity as of yet because of our chosen opinions of the Scriptures.

 

And yes my friend, the Bible teaches just as Paul said, that God is in us and the Bible also says God is flesh and bone with the nail wounds still in Him.

 

We either accept the whole Bible or we do not.

 

Before we die, according to the Holy Bible, we need to put our faith in Jesus and clearly, Jesus alone, for our salvation. Not anyone nor anything else for our salvation.

God made it this way... that we can only be saved through His Son Jesus.

Contrary to popular world opinion, not even merely believing there is a God, will save us...according to the Bible.

 

The criminal that hanged on a cross next to Jesus chose to put his faith in Jesus shortly before he died.

Since he was dying, this criminal had no time to join a church, pay tithes, get baptized in water, make right all the wrong he did to people, give to the poor, nor even read the Bible.

He obviously remembered what Jesus said during His 3 years of preaching and decided to rest his faith in Jesus and Him alone to get Him to Heaven...not anyone nor anything else.

Jesus forgave him and told Him he would be with Him in Heaven that same day.

 

Jesus is the God of the Old Testament, our Creator, and our Redeemer, in human flesh.

Praise His holy name forever!!

 

We either believe this or we don't.

 

The choice is ours.

Just like the 2 criminals that hanged on a cross next to Jesus, one chose to believe in Jesus and the other did not.

 

Not believing in Jesus will cause us to end up in eternal hell, according to Jesus.

 

Put your faith in Jesus.

 

He alone is sufficient for our salvation

This Week's Sermon: Prophecy ( 7-5-15 )

The situation with the country of Greece today, and Europe getting involved in helping might bring about the ten horns of Daniel.

 

It is interesting that I'm hearing more talk about Jesus coming back.

This is good to see happening within the body of Christ.

 

As we see in the news, the world is getting more wicked. People defy God and want nothing to do with God.

 

Jesus prophesied that before He returns this world will be like it was in the days of Noah.

 

And so it is.

 

Keep your focus on Jesus.

 

As Jesus said;

And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, andsothat day come upon you unawares.

For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.“     Luke 21:34-36

This Week's Sermon: ( 6-23-15 )

John said;

The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.   John 1:29

 

There are people in today's society who take this verse and conclude that all people will eventually end up in Heaven.

 

This is a sad doctrine.

 

Contrary to popular society belief, including modern day evangelicalism, of whom people I personally know, Jesus Himself said that even though He died to take away the sins of the world, most people in the world will still end up in eternal hell.

Interesting!

 

Jesus said clearly;

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wideisthe gate, and broadisthe way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Because straitisthe gate, and narrowisthe way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.   Matthew 7:13-14

 

The same Jesus who died to take away the sins of the world also said clearly that all liars will burn in hell for all eternity...contrary to popular society belief;

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.“  Revelation 21:8

 

And yes, my friend, Jesus did say, “ all liars “;

 

Since God created us all to have the right to believe whoever or whatever we want, in the end of our present physical life here on earth, who do we believe?? Jesus or society?

 

Personally, I choose to believe Jesus.
