John 6:35 Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with tax-exempt status. Pray – Volunteer – Donate
WE all struggle over matters of time. We all have the same minutes in an hour and hours in a day and days in a week Yet,
Many of us want to control the speed of time. When you’re waiting to get your first driver’s license, time isn’t fast enough. WE want time to hurry so we can grow up and then wish time would slow down while we are holding our grandchildren and getting older. Sometimes we feel we are in a race with time as the clock ticks to meet deadlines. Most of us feel like we need more time. They say time is money and we just can’t buy enough time. Meanwhile, God seems unphased by the passing of time. What gives?
I always wonder why God takes so long in answering prayers?!
And then I realized something…from God’s perspective, He is in this relationship with you for the long haul, eternity in fact. He sees that your days on this earth are a mere breath compared to the place where he’s built mansions for his servants to live. I’ve heard from people who temporarily died and saw this heavenly place report the grass never dies and the flowers sing as you walk by, but it was not their time to live there yet. For God, time is more like a togetherness that has no ending. A relationship that grows but also, will never die. If God makes a promise, He keeps it. Time is nothing compared to him keeping his word.
Did you pray for a mansion? You have one!
Have you prayed you would never age? You won’t!
Have you prayed for healing? You have it!
Whatever prayers you find your spirit crying out for have already been answered. It is just not time YET!
Here’s the simple answer, We can!! But what benefit is that to you if eternity and judgment await you apart from God? People feel really good about themselves when they seem to bridge a gap, or unite divided minds and they are even quicker to label it “love”. But I’m here to tell you, that was never God’s message nor is it his love for you.
The Christian message is not about getting along, rather it is about light vs. darkness, the children of God vs. the children of Satan, eternity spent with the creator or with the adversary, it is a message about choosing the Kingdom of Heaven or the pit of hell. It is the creators desire for you to choose his son over sin.
Jesus talked a lot about the eternal life and used parables to explain judgment that awaits every human ever created. His message was calling humanity to repentance. He warned of Hell and used extreme examples to emphasize the seriousness of his warning;
“if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell and if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell”….”I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.”
Jesus went on to described this earth, your fleshly desires and the natural thoughts that come to you mind as hostile to him, awaiting judgment through fire and already condemned. He was killed for this statement,
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Therefore, the Kingdom of heaven is not about liking each other, or making peace, or getting along, or acceptance. Those are the worlds terms for temporary peace and will never last. Eternity is forever. If you want to be saved, read this story from Jesus, believe his words and ask him to be born again in him! Listen to the Video Testimony below!
Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.
“How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”
Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit….
For God so lovedthe world that he gavehis one and only Son,that whoever believesin him shall not perish but have eternal life.For God did not send his Son into the worldto condemn the world, but to save the world through him.Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.This is the verdict: Lighthas come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
The apostasy of the Christian church reaches far and wide.
We are a generation of so called Christians that has decided to make up our own rules. We take what we want to hear and keep that, but if something does not affirm our beliefs or does not makes us feel good then we trash the rest. This is not the voice of God. It’s the voice of self love and we are being deceived.
The Old Testament is not about some mean God and then Jesus comes as the nice prophet and teacher to make you feel better. This is about a Father and his Son, a holy Kingdom with justice and righteousness as the foundation of his throne. Their power and rule forever eternal. The story of Jesus in the Bible is about a God who meets his own demands. He is so righteous that he satisfied the governing rule he placed in the universe himself. Sin equals death. God is the same, yesterday, today and forever. Sin is still sin and God will judge it accordingly.
Eternal life apart from God is called death and condemnation in hell. A place designed to take captive all sin and evil. People shrink away from a Holy God until they’ve been violated or taken over and enslaved by an act, deed, thought or by something or someone so dirty that shame smothers the life out of a soul, then… suddenly! Holiness is the sweetest embrace as it washes over them making one clean and white as snow. God you are Holy and we are so happy to be in your presence.
The God in the Old Testament and the God in the New Testament are the same. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God, and when we come to Christ, we are to be born a new of the Holy Spirit! We cannot strive in sin, we are not free when we live in or walk in it. God has not changed his mind and suddenly the sins outlined in the Bible are now embraced and free from judgment. Don’t be deceived. Get your life right before God! You are washed in the blood of Christ and he paid a high price for you to stand in righteous covering to be judged.
