Father, forgive me.
Holy Father, conviction has taken hold of me. I am ashamed. My sins have overwhelmed me to the devils glee. It is
against you, oh LORD, that I have sinned. You know the beginning and end of my life. In my failures I have demeaned my Lord
and Savior and faith was abandoned in a moment of lostness. I bow my head in sorrow and by the blood of Jesus, my Lord, I
am clean again.
You are a GOD of forgiveness and mercy. Your love passes all understanding. Holy are you, oh LORD,
and righteous are your judgments. It is so and I thank you for this comfort. Judgment begins at your house.
my paths, oh LORD. In your righteousness I am secure and through your loving kindness I am content. Strengthen me in your
Holy Spirit's power and wisdom. You cared for me my whole life my Father. You delivered me from death and my enemies. I praise
you and give you all glory. You are a GOD of care and comfort and never forget your own.
In you and you alone no evil
can overcome me, and your love for me, oh LORD. Nothing in this world or elsewhere can, for only you are THE ALMIGHTY GOD,
and all is subject to you. And I am yours through Jesus Christ, the Son of Man. You will deliver me and fulfill your will
for my life.
Raise me up, oh GOD, and place your hand over my life to strengthen, guide and discipline me. Then I
will know that my days are not in vain and my end according to your perfect will.
May the Lord and Savior come soon.
I pray to you in His Holy name and believe I am forgiven.
THE ISSUE OF SIN
Sin is not a free will choice before salvation. It is a preexisting condition.
It IS the nature of man. If sin were avoidable through free will then Christ died in vain.
After being born again the
sin nature is still a preexisting condition but now one has a new nature from above co existing with the dead sin nature.
Thus sin remains a condition of the human nature only overcome through the true life of The Spirit within. That life from
above unfolds by fillings of God over the lifetime of the saved one.
God has provided a means of keeping the believer
in fellowship notwithstanding the sin nature and it's sin manifestations by Christ's High Priestly service in the heavenly
sanctuary above for the specific purpose of pleading the very blood that delivered a believer from the penalty of their sins,
remains the antidote for the sin nature which persists alongside the new nature from above.
Scripture is clear: one
who purports to be a born again believer who denies their sin is a liar and the insane rational that it does not sin in some
way, shows that beyond being a liar, that one has NO truth in them at all and has become totally self- deceived. In this denial,
they deny the continuing ministry of Christ as well as the substance of why He had to die and rise from the dead. 1 John
It's not news
that mankind has always tried to make itself bigger and better then it is. That's the way we are born, dead to God and
eventually needing to puff our "self" up. (Gen.4:16-24; Rom.1.18-23).
The scripture is clear what happens
to those who pit themselves against Almighty God (Gen.6:5-7; Nah.2:14; Ex.12:29-30; Rev.18;19:17-21).
reject Jesus are being what is natural to them. Some think worldly position and "get,get,get" will do it. Other's
eating right or the worship of hand picked gods. Still others the right partner, job, drugs, re-incarnations, intellect or
entertainment will. Satan concocted a billion scams to deceive the lost spirit and soul of man. In the end of his rule on
earth multitudes will worship him in the form of a false Christ without recourse to the true God ever again. They will have
to pay their final bill with others from before. (Rev.13:16; 14:9-11; 21:11-15).
The lost world loves itself. It
cannot perceive The Spirit and the truth of Christ. Read a book like "I'm O.K your O.K" that some snake salesman
put out years ago to keep us in the grave. Just look around you and see all the important people on the T.V shows and the
"news" that glorifies everything under the son except The Son of Almighty GOD. Look out your window at the stars
on the street. The real news is that there's nothing new under the sun. Man needs God. God says "come". Love
came from God, in the form of His Son and everything he accomplished for us. It rests within a believer by His power and authority.
It is God The Holy Spirit (Jn.15:12-14).
The world and the flesh are a well dressed up graveyard. It is already
judged. All roads do not lead to heaven, only the one name that saves who is Jesus Christ (Jn.3:16).
The big shots
have countless followers who fill their pockets with millions and more. They make sure to mention God and, as if they have
some eternal connection, appear so sanctified. They come in all forms and walks of life including the clergy. Often proud
and self-assured they strut and fret their hour upon the stage as greatly blessed of God. Why don't they give their wealth
to the poor as Jesus suggested and follow him? (Lk.18:18-27).JESUS WAS MEEK & LOWLY * DESPISED OF MEN (See Isaiah 53)
THE DENIAL OF DEATH IN SIN, GOD'S JUDGMENT, A SECOND DEATH AND JUDGMENT TO EVERLASTING CONSCIOUS TORMENTS
WHO IS SIN AGAINST?
Proverbs 20:9 "Who can say, "I have kept my heart pure; I am clean and without sin"?
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight. You will be proved right in what you say,
and your judgment against me is just.
THE CONSEQUENCE OF REJECTING JESUS CHRIST
25:46 "And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal."
THE LAKE OF FIRE
Revelation 19:20 "But the beast was captured, and with him
the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received
the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur."
here is another refutation of annihilation. The "beast" and "false prophet" are humans.
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."
21:8 "But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts,
the idolaters and all liars--their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."
20:14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.
LORD SPEAKS THE TRUTH (A TRUTH WE MUST WARN THE LOST OF)
we have Jesus warning us: Matt.25:41
"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"
9:44: "Where the worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched."
9:47-48 "And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with
one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched."
18:9 "And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one
eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell."
Testament (Not complete, just as an example of precedent before New Testament)
12:2 "Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting
DELIVERED FROM HELL AND THE LAKE OF FIRE
and the Lake of Fire are primary reasons why God sent Jesus Christ to pay the penalty for our sins. Being “extinguished”
after death is no fate to dread, but an eternity in hell in the Lake of Fire most definitely is. Jesus’ death
was an infinite death, paying our infinite sin debt so that we would not have to pay it in hell for eternity (2 Corinthians 5:21). When we place our faith in Him, we are saved, forgiven, cleansed, and promised an eternal home in heaven.
But if we reject God’s gift of eternal life, we will face the eternal consequences of that decision.
WARN THE LOST. BUT FIRST GIVE THEM THE "GOOD NEWS".
KEEP HOPE ETERNALLY CENTERED
All nations are lost. None are righteous, not one. But let us be an example
in Christ. Cherish His hope, it is sure. Abide in His love, it is pure. Stand fast in His word, it is truth. Give what is
dearest, it is for Him. Be filled with the Holy Spirit, it is His wish. Live for His glory, it is ours for Him. Keep
hope eternal, of this we are assured. Look up and listen for His call, He keeps His word. Work while His light shines in this
President Abraham Lincoln 1863
"It is the duty of nations, as well as
of men, to owe their dependence upon the overruling power of God ... and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the
Holy Scriptures and proven by all history that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord. ... We have been the
recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have
grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation ever has grown, but we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious
Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness
of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own."
He Is With Us
Isaiah 43:2-3, "When you pass through
the waters, I will be with you; When you walk through the fire you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. For
I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior."
There is one church in every generation, His called out ones, His sheep. He will not lose even one. We give glory to
GOD for His love and for His Son, Jesus Christ, who saved us from an unceasing death and the fires of eternal darkness.
"My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life,
and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all,
no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one" (Jn.10:27-30).
God made us one. One in GOD
The Father, God The Son and God the Holy Spirit who are ONE.
In a moment, on a day our Father only knows, Jesus will
call us home. Then we shall be ONE forever.
WE WILL FOLLOW GOD NOT MAN
In Luke 9:23 the Lord states the imperative of a believer who lives through
Him: "...If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me"
CHOOSE THIS DAY!
"Now, therefore, fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth;
and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the river, and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.
if it seem evil to you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served
that were on the other side of the river, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house,
we will serve the Lord"(Josh.24:14,15).
HIS STRENGTH MADE PERFECT IN OUR WEAKNESS
2 Corinthians 12:9-11 "And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My
strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ
may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's
sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
His Word In You
the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual
songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord
Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him"(Col.3:16-17).
Walk In The Light
we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the
light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all
sin." 1 John 1:6-7
IN GRAVE TIMES WE FORGIVE OUR ENEMIES
"Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this he fell asleep"
(Acts 7:see esp 7:54-60).
Everything Good In His Love
"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become
as sounding bronze, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophesy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge;
and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing"
