This Week's Sermon ( 12-6-17 )

" And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.  "   Revelation 20:13-15

" And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. "   Revelation 19:20

" And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. "   Revelation 20:10
"And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. "   Revelation 20:14
" And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. "   Revelation 20:15

" 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

I know hell is not a popular subject today.

Hell is rarely mentioned in sermons nowadays.

There was a time when some preachers were criticized for preaching too much about hell.

People got tired of hearing about hell.

Nowadays, few believe hell exists and even if they do believe hell exists, they think hell is only a temporary place of punishment, not eternal, even though Jesus said it is eternal.

People believe Jesus lied about hell being eternal.

Many people think God is too good and too loving to let anyone go to hell, even though Jesus Himself said that more people will end up in hell than will make it to Heaven.

Jesus clearly said;

" Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.  "   Matthew 7:13-14

" Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, 
Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.  "   Luke 13:23-24

One famous talk show host said to the world - " I cannot believe that a loving God would let anyone go to hell. "

Yes, I talked about God's love for the human race in my last sermon but God still requires humans to believe in one thing and that is His only begotten Son, Jesus, in order to escape damnation in eternal hell.

It is God's love that motivated Him to give Himself in suffering and dying for us in order to keep us out of hell.

Jesus is our only hope in escaping eternal hell.

Whether we choose to believe in Jesus or not...it is up to us.

The choice is ours.

God provided only one way to Heaven and that is through His only begotten Son, Jesus.

We either believe this or we do not.

Jesus is not one of many ways as if He were an option or on a list of multiple choices as some are now believing today.

Jesus is the only way, literally.

And by the way, no human being can earn Heaven. 

We do not make it to Heaven by our works.

No human has good enough works to make it to Heaven.

This is why Jesus had to suffer and die like He did.

We can only make it to Heaven by believing in God's only begotten Son, Jesus and asking Him to wash away our sins in His precious blood, clothe us in His righteousness and bestow His grace and mercy on us.

The apostle Paul called himself a wretched man.

Well, Paul did not know me.

I'm more wretched than he was. 

If God can forgive me for my failures and sins, God can forgive anyone who repents and rests their faith in His only begotten Son, Jesus.

If we choose to take the chance believing someone or something else when we draw our last breath in this earthly life as the rich man did, we will end up where the rich man did.

Jesus said;

" And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 
And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.   Luke 16:23-24

I cannot imagine how horrible hell is...even before hell is cast into the lake of fire which seems to be even worse.

My friend, before we die we must believe in Jesus in order to escape this eternal damnation.

After we die it is then too late to change our mind just as it was for the rich man.

Please believe in Jesus and tell others to do the same.

And always keep your faith in Jesus to the end.

This Week's Sermon ( 10-17-17 )

" But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 
Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.  Mark 13:32-33


" But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 
But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.  "   1 Thessalonians 5:1-4

There is so much going on in the world these days that I have to talk about the return of Jesus.

There has recently been hurricanes of catastrophic proportion that has excelled any hurricane that has happened in the past.

There was a hurricane that hit Ireland recently, where there has never been a hurricane ever in history.

There was a fire in California recently that was the worst in California ever...even though fires are common in that state. 

Many church people are now wondering what is going on. They are wondering if Jesus might be returning soon.

I heard a sermon this past Sunday in which the pastor admitted that most of his life he has always quoted the verse;

But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.  "   Mark 13:32

not taking signs of the return of Jesus seriously.

But he admits, now, he is wondering if Jesus is coming back.

Jesus did say;

" And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; "   Luke 21:35

While there will be catastrophic events take place to indicate the return of Jesus, we still have to remember one thing that Paul said;

" For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  "   1 Thessalonians 5:3

Even though, along with catastrophic events as we have been witnessing lately, this " peace and safety " is also prophesied to be part of the last days before Jesus returns and this prophecy of " peace and safety " has not happened yet.

According to Jesus it will be during this time that many christians will be slack, thinking the Lord delayeth His coming. 

It will be during this time of " peace and safety " that christians will lose sight of the return of Jesus and focus on worldly things. 

During this " peace and safety " is more than likely when Jesus will return in the rapture but we must also understand that the rapture is also a prophetic sign of the return of Jesus when He returns literally to the earth to fight in the battle of Armageddon and set up His thousand year kingdom here on earth.

Keep your faith in Jesus no matter what happens.

Jesus is returning soon.

This Week's Sermon ( 9-19-17 )

" 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

"And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. "   1 John 2:2


God wanted the fellowship back that He had with Adam and Eve before they sinned...and even moreso.

My friend, God did not choose to become one of His angels who fell with Lucifer to redeem them back to Himself.

The angels who chose to fall with satan are doomed to eternal hell...along with satan.

" Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: "   Matthew 25:41

Satan knows God did not choose to become one of the fallen angels to redeem back to Himself and this is one reason he hates God so much and hates the human race so much and will try to get as many human beings into eternal hell with him as he possibly can before his time runs out.

" Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. "   Revelation 12:12

While satan is no doubt in glee presently deceiving the nations;

" And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. "   Revelation 20:3

the time will come when he will be cast into the lake of fire and burn, without being able to die nor escape, for all eternity and he will have all of eternity to remember and regret what he has done and will have the load of guilt to deal with for all eternity as well.

And not only satan and his fallen angels will be in this terrible situation but human beings who reject Jesus Christ, who is God in the flesh, as Lord and Savior will end up burning in the lake of fire with remembrance of the sins they committed, and will have to live for all eternity with the load of guilt as well.

My friend, everyone that believes in Jesus thinks, including the rest of the world, that everyone is automatically and ultimately going to Heaven because of John saying;

"...Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. "

Jesus did warn that, even though He did die to take away the sin of the world, most of the world will still end up in eternal hell;

" Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. "   Matthew 7:13-14

Keep your faith in Jesus to the end.

This Week's Sermon ( 8-22-17 )

" And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. "   Genesis 3:8


When God created Adam and Eve, He would come and visit them.

God likes fellowship, especially with His creation that He created in His own image.

" So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. "   Genesis 1:27

However, we lost that relationship with God when Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden tree.

Since Adam and Eve did this, their children and all the generations that follow to this present day are born in sin...separated from God.

However, God had a plan that He came up with even before He created the earth... and that would be for Him to become one of His creation that He created in His own image literally in human flesh and die for us in order to redeem us back unto Himself.

" Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 
But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 
Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, "   1 Peter 1:18-20

My friend, God does not need us nor does He need anything. 

The truth is, God wants us.

God knew the only way to redeem us back to Himself since Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden tree was to become flesh and blood like us, and shed His own blood for our salvation.

I will continue this soon.
