These are two very important verses that I quote often. 22 years ago I came to a point in my life where I understood that life was all about Jesus and what He did for me. That realization changed everything for me! My life is still all about Jesus and it will continue to be all about Him until my very last breath! Even then His Name will be on my lips as I transition to glory in the power of the Holy Spirit! Amen!
Wherever you are at in life, please consider these two verses in Romans. Jesus Christ is the only One who ever died to forgive all of your sins! No other faith claims such a thing. That makes a lot of people mad, but it shouldn’t! Jesus Christ died to save your soul! There is nothing you could do to earn that free gift from God. That is great news, so rejoice, don’t be mad! No amount of meditation or burning of incense or good works or any other religious ceremony is ever going to save your soul. You might become enlightened in some worldly way from such things, but it does nothing for your soul. Meditating all day might be great for blood pressure, but it does not get you to Heaven.
Every other faith in the world puts a direct emphasis on what YOU have to do to earn your salvation, and that is not from God. Salvation is a free gift from God. It is all about what HE did for us. There is nothing we can do to get to Heaven on our own. Christianity is about trusting in Jesus Christ for our salvation through faith. It is also about making Him Lord of our lives as we follow Him and obey His Word. He is our Lord and He is our Savior, and there is no other.
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”
I gave my life to Jesus because I was coming out of a horrifying supernatural experience that lasted 4 years. I know most of you who believe did not come to Jesus that way. I hope and pray that my testimony will help people come to Jesus. People need to know the spiritual realm is real and they need to know how serious the choice is regarding their eternal souls! Believers, we need to warn them, so don’t give up! Keep preaching using the gifts God gave you and in the style and manner He does through you! Your labor in the Lord is never in vain! His Word always bears fruit when it is sent out into the world! Amen Lord Jesus!
“For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile–the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
“Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.”
I was having a very hard day today folks. I have been getting hit with everything from discouragement to depressing thoughts to anxiety, so I did everything I could today to dig in and focus my mind, heart, and soul on Jesus! After spending the day in prayer and reading His Word, I am doing just fine and I am strong in Him! Now I am writing this!
I really wish I could convey to every unbeliever just how awesome the Holy Spirit is, but it is something that needs to be experienced to be fully understood! When you give your life to Jesus, He fills you with His Holy Spirit, which guarantees your inheritance in Heaven! This is not an analogy or a metaphor. The Holy Spirit of God is real and God exists on earth by His Spirit, which is inside every believer in Jesus Christ. It is the Holy Spirit that gives us power to live righteous and holy lives before God! God also gives us spiritual gifts in the Holy Spirit, which are to be used for His glory as we share the gospel and help people. The Holy Spirit is the “streams of living water” flowing inside of us that Jesus talked about in John 7:38!
“And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession–to the praise of his glory.”
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.”
1 Corinthians 12:4-7
All these things are offered to you for free from God! He is not asking you to do a certain number of chants, or burn incense, or sacrifice animals, and He definitely does not want you doing those things to idols. Accepting Jesus Christ is a choice of your free will and you must believe in Him to be saved!
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.”
I love you all! You know I lived in a real haunted house in high school and Jesus saved my family from that demon! I have told you about God’s mighty and beautiful angels and what God did for me not once, but twice with them! You also know that the Lord saved me from death in 2012 and that if He had not done that, I would not be here telling you these things!
God gave me my breath back and I am going to use that breath to glorify His Name! Jesus is still saving souls! He is alive! I can testify to that! He was right there with me when I stopped breathing and He never left my side! I will never forget the immense love, peace, and painlessness that was all around me and through me! Please repent and turn to Jesus! Repent just means change your mind. Change your mind about living life your own way as if you know better than God. Turn from your sins and turn to your Creator, be forgiven through Jesus, and live! He wants to save you from death, which we live in the shadow of every day and which will come for all of us someday!
Let me tell you something! I already died once and it is beautiful in Jesus and you are going to want to know Him and have a deep relationship with Him at your last breath! Please trust me in this, I am not messing with you. The only reason I was safe when I stopped breathing is because of Jesus Christ! The Holy Spirit of God is powerful and my wife and I were blessed to experience the full measure of that power when the Lord brought me back! Jesus is the resurrection and the life!
Many people are ashamed of Jesus and they mock Him and His followers. I am not ashamed! I love Jesus Christ! I know Him and He is a close personal friend of mine! He is still right here with me and He never leaves me! He is also my Lord and Savior! I spend my days introducing people to Him because He delivered me from darkness and death and He saved my soul!
He will forgive all of your sins and save your soul too! He is the only One who can!
Grace and peace to you all!
