Why is the Truth so hard to believe?


I find that if I tell someone the truth they have problems believing what I say, but if I tell them a total outright lie they accept it with no problems, why is that? We live in a world where everything seems to be upside down, a world where what use to be right is now wrong and what was once wrong is now excepted as being right. Years ago when someone gave you there word you could take it to the bank, now it better be recorded or notaries and have a lot of witnesses, what happened what changed?

Reflection of Jesus in youSometimes telling the truth can really hurt but God commands that we as His people should always tell the truth.

But is it necessary to always tell the truth? Let’s say some little old lady comes up to you in church and ask what do you think of my new hat. When you look at it right away you see it is the ugliest hat you ever seen, but what do you say to the lady who is standing waiting on an answer.

Do you hurt her feeling by saying I am sorry but that is one ugly hat. Or would you do as Jesus would do, find something about it that you do like, maybe the color, the shape, a flower on it. There are many ways to answer someone and still tell the truth without hurting them.

As a minister people are always asking me about God and Religion, and what is the reason for so many different Christian Churches.

The only answer I have is to tell them because the Trust is too hard to believe and 99% of people want a religion that fits their life style and what they want to believe. So for this very reason people push aside the Truth so they can have it their way, the only problem with this is it is not Gods way and apart for God everything is sin.

If you look at most of the Christian Churches today, they all claim to be teaching the Truth from the Bible and that there Church keeps all of God Holy Commandments. But if you look a little closer into their beliefs you will find that they don’t keep Gods 4th Commandment, why is that.

Open your Bible to Matthew 15:8&9, here is Jesus telling the religious leaders of His time about a problem they had “‘these people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men” Could it be that 2000 years after Jesus came to this Earth to teach us what the Truth was that we are going back to the same problems the Jews had, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men over the commandments of God.

Look at what Paul said just before he died, Acts 20:29&30: For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. 30: Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.

Take a good look at how some of the really big TV and Radio Church Leaders live. Do you see them living in Million Dollars Home and Drive the best Cars and Trucks money can buy. Are they preaching the truth in these Churches that hold many many thousands of people are or they preaching what the people want to hear. Do you think if they were preaching the Truth direct from the Bible that they would still be so popular and there Churches so full.

How is it that the religious leaders in Jesus time could not see that He was the Christ the Son of God. Because once you close your eyes to truth you will never see clear again Luke 19; 47. 47 Every day he was teaching at the temple. But the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the leaders among the people were trying to kill him. Gods truth is the only truth there is apart from it everything else is a lie. God is a God of love and mercy He will never force His truth on anyone. But as with the religious leaders in Jesus time the same is with our religious leaders today. Religion has become a big money maker, it is the bread and butter of most religious leaders. The more people they get into their churches the more money they make. They all preach Jesus but then they all make up excuses as to why we don’t need to do what Jesus said to do. The Bible calls three things as truth John: 14:6 Jesus is Truth, John: 17:17 The Bible is Truth, Psalm: 119: 151 Gods Commandments His Ten Commandments are Truth.

Truth in Noah time was so bad that only 8 people believed it and when the rain and floods started the majority of those who did not believe it died.

Truth cannot be determined by statistics or by the number of people who believe it, the truth will always remain the truth.

Even Jesus had a hard time convening people about the Truth in His days, except for a small group of 120 men and women who believe He was indeed the true Son of God.

Jesus gave to His people the seed of Abraham His truth written on two tablets of Stone His Ten Commandments Law. He also gave them other Laws dealing with how to deal with others and how to keep healthy. He also gave them prophecy to help them know when the fullness of time would come for God the Father to send His Son into the world

But when He came to His own people they rejected Him Galatians: 4: 4. But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.

What happen, they had Gods holy word, it told them that the Son of God who they was to be looking for was soon to be borne, how could they miss it.. John: 1: 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Jesus people who had the Truth of His word to guide them, were so lost by believing a lie that when He did came to them they did not know Him.

I find that in today’s society people want a religion that more or less fits into their life style and truth does not really matter too much, just give it to me my way.

I once had a group of guys who wanted to know the truth of what is in the Bible; being they knew me and knew how I lived my life they ask me to do a Bible study with them. I told them; to understand the Bible and its truth you need to study both the Old and New Testaments. The reason for this was because a lot of what the new testaments says comes directly from the Old Testament and books like Daniel and Revelation are keys to unlocking the truth.

Everyone was happy with that and as we started getting into the Bible study I could see the light in their eyes began to glow with the understanding of God’s word, His truth. But about half way through the study I could see that light going out when it came to them having to give up some of the things they use to do, why is that?

Read Matthew: 13: 3 to 9:
3 Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. 6 But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. 8 But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

They heard the truth but because of cares in this life they started to look for ways around the truth so that they would not need to change. Even to the point of saying there is no way that all the other religions can all be wrong and just you right.

Now hear how Jesus explains the parable

Matthew: 13
18 “Therefore hear the parable of the sower: 19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside. 20 But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles. 22 Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. 23 But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”

When the truth is first presented to someone Joy filled their heart, but as soon as the cares and wants of this world come before them they don’t want to let go of what they had, I want Jesus but I want the world as well.

1 Peter: 5:
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Satan will stop at nothing in order to pull the Truth away from you; he will use the cares of this world, family, work, and friend to do just that

Look at Proverbs: 14: 12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

There are many different forms and types of Christian Churches for you to choose to follow, but if they are not following what the Bibles teaches from Genesis to Revelation you might be in the wrong place and when Jesus comes back to take home His true follower you might get left behind.

Matthew: 6: 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

You can’t eat from the Lords table during the day and dance on Satan table at night, it don’t work. If you are not 100% present for God then you are nothing for God, there is no halfway or sitting on the fence. Jesus said in

John 14:
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. It is as clear as that
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

True Christians will be the ones who keep the commandments of God, the same ones Jesus kept and followed while living on earth. Look at Matthew 5 remember this is Jesus speaking saying that He did not come to change things but to fulfill them.

Matthew: 5:
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

The last time I looked heaven and earth was still here

Take a look at the book of Isaiah: 66 and start at verse 22. The prophet Isaiah is giving a look into the future at the new Heaven and Earth. What will Gods people be doing?

lesson24-1722 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain.

The old Earth is gone and all that was sin is no more, God and His people that love Him are in the Holy City

23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.

What are they doing, from one Sabbath to another all flesh will come together to worship God

Now think about this, when God finished creating the earth on the seventh day He rested and blessed the seventh day and made it holy. He gave it to His children Adam & Eve so that they would always remember who their creator is.

We then find Him giving it to the Children of Israel telling them to Remember the Sabbath day His holy day of worship. We see Jesus and His disciples keeping the Sabbath as God the Father has commanded. After Jesus died on the cross in the New Testament we see His follower still keeping the Sabbath, and now we read the prophet Isaiah is giving a future view of the new earth and he is telling us that we are still keeping the Sabbath in the earth made new. You can’t get any clearer than that in telling the Truth.

Where will this old earth and its people who did not make the first resurrection of Gods true believers end up.

24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

How do we know this will happen in the Earth made new, because we will look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against God Law, Gods Commandments all Ten of them. Remember again what Jesus said in the book of Matthew: 5: Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. If you break one of them you are guilty of breaking them all.

So how do you know what is the Bible truth and what is not the Bible truth? The Bible tell us how to check, if what you believe or what your Church is teaching does not agree with the hold Bible from Genesis to Revelation then what they are saying is not the pure Truth.

Isaiah: 8: 20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them

The Bible will never contradict itself from Genesis to Revelation, if there is a contradiction the problem is not in the Bible the problem is in the interpolation.

Isaiah: 28: 10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

Look up every scripture dealing with a subject you want to know, our days with a good concordance and the internet that is very easy. If what you believe is not in line with what the entire Bible is teaching then you have a problem not the Bible.

2 Timothy: 3: 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: The Bible says that All Scripture not some scripture and that includes the Old & New Testaments is giving by the inspiration of God

Foe over 1600 years men of God were moved by the Holy Spirit to write what God was showing them and telling them. All scripture from Genesis to Revelation is the inspired word of God, and it is to be used for doctrine and reproof and correction of what we think is truth. If what you believe is not 100% in line with the Bible then what you believe is a lie.

The prophet Daniel was inspired by God to tell us about future events that would happen to His people so that they would believe and have faith and put there life in His hands. God’s true believers were persecuted by the Roman Church all through the dark ages. Read Fox’s book of Martyrs

Daniel: 7: 25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Daniel: 8: 12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.

This is why it is so important to study the Bible for yourself and not go by a priest or pastor, they could be wrong. Forget what you learned in school about God and go to the Bible and read it letting Gods Holy Spirit lead you into all Truth.

Jesus told us that the way would not be easy, it is not getting baptized and living happy ever after. The road to truth is narrow and few believe and follow it.

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

Jesus also told us that there will be false teachers claiming to have a link direct to God and will deceive many with there lies. But here again we must go by what the Bible says not man
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Just because a Church is big and has the best of everything does not mean it is a true church following Gods truth. Look at what Jesus told us

Matthew: 7:
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

They may have done a lot of good and wonderful things and preformed many miracles but if they are not keeping and teaching the pure truth of God’s word they are lost and don’t know it.

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Just before Jesus comes back to this world we are told that persecution of God true believers will once again take place. How will you know the different between God true believer, the book of Revelation makes it very clear! God’s holy people will be the ones being persecuted because they will be the ones keeping God Commandments

Revelation: 12:
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Out of the entire world the prophet John sees only a small group of people who are faithful to God; they are the ones doing what Jesus done, keeping His Father Commandments all Ten of them.

Revelation: 14:
12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

When the time comes Jesus will divide His true believers from the fake believers. Matthew: 25: 31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats

My friends whoever you are reading this please stop and pray right now asking God to show you His truth. But beware because when God is letting His light shine on you that you don’t reject it or try and look for ways around it.

Remember we are all baptized into the one and only body of God, so stop believing in what others say is the truth and go look it up for yourself.

Jesus CallingEphesians: 4:
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

There is only one Truth and that is the pure word of God found in His book the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, everything else is a lie.



Elder Tim McNab
Restoring Gods Truth

Unconditional Love




About 41 years ago I fell in love with a beautiful Island woman; but it was not just her looks that I loved it was also her mannerism. She was very well spoken of and treated her family, her friend & herself with a deep respect for everyone. At that time I was working in the oilfield off shore of Venice Louisiana, I was just 17 teen at the time but was soon to be 18. I would leave for 6 or more months at a time and she was always there waiting for me to return. One day I asked her to marry me and she said not until I ask her Father first. What I said ask your Father first but why I am not marrying him I want to marry you, not until I ask her Father.

LoveAsking someone Father for the right to marry their daughter, no way am I going to do that, or at least I said that to myself. You see asking someone Father for the right to marry their daughter was a way of respect and that was one of the things about her that made her stand out from all the other woman that I dated. Now 41 years later she is still my beautiful Island woman, we have both made a lot of changes because time is no body’s friend. But is it not what is on the outside that matters it is what is on the inside because unconditional Love overlooks the faults in each of our characters and says I love you, I love you, I love you.

But what about God’s unconditional love for man, come take a trip with me in the Bible and let’s see what it says about God love for mankind.

Let us Pray!



Let’s look at John: 3:16-17
16. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

The scriptures have a beautiful way to describe how God feels about His creation. Can you imagine the creator God stooping down from His eternal glory and becoming His creation in order to save them from a bad mistake they made.

Well that is exactly what happened!

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

All heaven took a deep and joyful interest in the creation of the world and of man. Human beings were a new and distinct order. They were made “in the image of God,” and it was the Creator’s design that they should populate the earth. They were to live in close communion with heaven, receiving power from the Source of all power. Upheld by God, they were to live sinless lives.

The holy pair were not only children under the fatherly care of God, but students receiving instruction from the all-wise Creator. They were visited by angels, and were granted communion with their Maker, with no obscuring veil between. . . . The mysteries of the visible universe–“the wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge”–afforded them an exhaustless source of instruction and delight. The laws and operations of nature, which have engaged men’s study for six thousand years, were opened to their minds by the infinite Framer and Upholder of all. They held converse with leaf and flower and tree, gathering from each the secrets of its life. With every living creature, from the mighty leviathan that playeth among the waters, to the insect mote that floats in the sunbeam, Adam was familiar. He had given to each its name, and he was acquainted with the nature and habits of all. God’s glory in the heavens, the innumerable worlds in their orderly revolutions, “the balancings of the clouds,” the mysteries of light and sound, of day and night,–all were open to the study of our first parents.

God created man a superior being; he alone is formed in the image of God, and is capable of partaking of the divine nature, of cooperating with his Creator and executing His plans.

. 1 John 3:1. Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not; because it knew him not

As John thought of the love of Christ, he was led to exclaim, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God.”

People think that it is a privilege to see a royal personage, and thousands go great distances to see one. How much greater privilege it is to be sons and daughters of the Most High. What greater privilege could be conferred on us than to be given entrance into the royal family in Heaven?

In order to become the sons and daughters of God, we must separate from the world. 2 Corinthians 6: 17: Come out from among them, and be ye separate,” the Lord says, “and I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters.” . . .

There is a heaven before us, a crown of life to win. But to the over comer only is the reward given. He who gains heaven must be clothed with the robe of righteousness. “Every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” In the character of Christ there was no discord of any kind. And this must be our experience. Our lives must be controlled by the principles that controlled His life.

Through the perfection of the sacrifice given for the guilty race, those who believe in Christ, coming unto Him, may be saved from eternal ruin. . .

Let no one be so deluded by the enemy as to think that it is a condescension for any man, however talented or learned or honored, to accept Christ. Every human being should look to heaven with reverence and gratitude, and exclaim with amazement, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God.” That when Christ appears we shall be Like Him

1 John 3:2. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

We are not to settle down, expecting that a change of character will come to us by some miraculous work, when Jesus shall appear in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Listen my young friends, we are judgment-bound right now, and probation is granted to us here in this life, in order that we may form characters for the future, immortal life.

Let none imagine that selfishness, self-esteem, and self-indulgence are compatible with the Spirit of Christ. Upon every truly converted man or woman there rests a responsibility that we cannot rightly estimate. The maxims and ways of the world are not to be adopted by the sons and daughters of the heavenly King.

In separating from the world, we shall encounter difficulties on every hand. But here is what the servant comfort for us: “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.”

We should show by our words and works that we recognize the great responsibility laid upon us. Our light should shine so clearly that others can see that we glorify the Father in our daily lives; that we are connected with heaven and are joint heirs with Jesus Christ.

To have fellowship with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ is to be ennobled and elevated, and made a partaker of joys unspeakable and full of glory. Food, clothing, station, and wealth may have their value; but to have a connection with God . . . is of priceless value. . . . And although it “doth not yet appear what we shall be,” “when Christ, who is our life, shall appear,” “we shall be like him.”
1 John 3:3. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure

Christ would elevate and refine man’s mind, purifying it from all dross, that man may appreciate the love that is without a parallel.

Through repentance, faith, and good works he may perfect a righteous character, and claim, through the merits of Christ, the privileges of the sons of God. The principles of divine truth, received and cherished in the heart, will carry us to a height of moral excellence that we had not deemed it possible for us to reach. . . . “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.”

Holiness of heart and purity of life were the great subjects of the teachings of Christ. In His sermon on the mount, after specifying what must be done in order to be blessed, and what must not be done, He says, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Perfection, holiness,–nothing short of this would give them success in carrying out the principles He had given them. Without this holiness, the human heart is selfish, sinful, and vicious. Holiness will lead its possessor to be fruitful, and abound in all good works. He will never become weary in well-doing; neither look for promotion in this world; but he will look forward to be promoted by the Majesty of heaven when He shall exalt His sanctified and holy ones to His throne. . . . Holiness of heart will produce right actions.

As God is pure in His sphere, so man is to be pure in his. And he will be pure if Christ is formed within, the hope of glory; for he will imitate Christ’s life and reflect His character.
The princely dignity of the Christian character will shine forth as the sun, and the beams of light from the face of Christ will be reflected upon those who have purified themselves even as He is pure.
1 John 4:10. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Jesus holding a man prayingIn redemption God has revealed His love in sacrifice, a sacrifice so broad and deep and high that it is immeasurable. John: 3: 16: God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son.
When Adam’s sin plunged the race into hopeless misery, God might have cut Himself loose from fallen beings. He might have treated them as sinners deserved to be treated. He might have commanded the angels of heaven to pour out upon our world the vials of His wrath. He might have removed this dark blot from His universe.

But He did not do this. Instead of banishing them from His presence, He came still nearer to the fallen race. He gave His Son to become bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh. John: 1: 14. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Christ by His human relationship to men drew them close to God. He clothed His divine nature with the garb of humanity, and demonstrated before the heavenly universe, before the un-fallen worlds, how much God loves the children of men.

The gift of God to man is beyond all computation. Nothing was withheld. God would not permit it to be said that He could have done more or revealed to humanity a greater measure of love. In the gift of Christ He gave all heaven.

The Highest, who was with the Father before the world was, submitted to humiliation, that He might uplift humanity. Prophecy withdraws the veil, that we may behold the throne of heaven, that we may see upon that throne, high and lifted up, One who in human form, came to our world to suffer, to be lacerated with stripes, and bruised for our iniquities.

Thus God showed His love for man. With Christ the Father gave all of heaven, that the moral image of God might be restored in man. . . . His grace in all its vastness is provided for all.

John 1:12. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.

Divine son ship is not something that we gain of ourselves. Only to those who receive Christ as their Saviour is given the power to become sons and daughters of God. The sinner cannot, by any power of his own, rid himself of sin. For the accomplishment of this result, he must look to a higher Power. John exclaimed, John: 1: 29: “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” Christ alone has power to cleanse the heart. He who is seeking for forgiveness and acceptance can say only,–

“Nothing in my hand I bring; Simply to Thy cross I cling.” But the promise of sonship is made to all who “believe on his name.” Everyone who comes to Jesus in faith will receive pardon.

The religion of Christ transforms the heart. It makes the worldly-minded man heavenly-minded. Under its influence the selfish man becomes unselfish, because this is the character of Christ. The dishonest, scheming man becomes upright, so that it is second nature to him to do to others as he would have others do to him. The profligate is changed from impurity to purity. He forms correct habits; for the gospel of Christ has become to him a savor of life unto life.

God was to be manifest in Christ, “reconciling the world unto himself.” Man had become so degraded by sin that it was impossible for him, in himself, to come into harmony with Him whose nature is purity and goodness. But Christ, after having redeemed man from the condemnation of the law, could impart divine power, to unite with human effort. Thus by repentance toward God and faith in Christ, the fallen children of Adam might once more become “sons of God.” When a soul receives Christ, he receives power to live the life of Christ.

Eph. 5:27: That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish..

The church, enfeebled and defective though it be, is the only object on earth on which Christ bestows His supreme regard. He is constantly watching it with solicitude, and is strengthening it by His Holy Spirit. Will we, as members of His church, allow Him to impress our minds and to work through us to His glory?

Christ loves His church. He will give all needed help to those who call upon Him for strength for the development of Christlike character. But His love is not weakness. He will not serve with their sins or give them prosperity while they continue to follow a wrong course of action. Only by faithful repentance will their sins be forgiven; for God will not cover evil with the robe of His righteousness. He will honor faithful service. He will abundantly bless those who reveal to their fellowmen His justice, mercy, and love. Let those who are engaged in His service walk before Him in true humility, following faithfully in His footsteps, cherishing the holy principles which will live through the eternal ages. Let them in word and action show that they obey the laws which are obeyed in heaven.

The church is the repository of the riches of the grace of Christ; and through the church will eventually be made manifest, even to “the principalities and powers in heavenly places,” the final and full display of the love of God…. The church is God’s fortress, His city of refuge, which He holds in a revolted world…. It is the theater of His grace, in which He delights to reveal His power to transform hearts.

God’s love for His church is infinite. His care over His heritage is unceasing.
2 Cor. 6:17, 18. I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

The Creator of the universe addresses you as an affectionate Father…. Your heavenly Father proposes to make you a member of the royal family, that through His exceeding great and precious promises you may be a partaker of the divine nature…. The more you partake of the character of the pure, sinless angels, and of Christ your Redeemer, the more vividly will you bear the impress of the divine, and the more faint will be the resemblance to the world.

“I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters….” What a promise is here made upon condition of obedience!…. He promises to be a Father unto you. Oh, what a relationship is this! higher and holier than any earthly tie. If you make the sacrifice, if you have to forsake father, mother, sisters, brothers, wife, and children for Christ’s sake, you will not be friendless. God adopts you into His family; you become members of the royal household, sons and daughters of the King who rules in the heaven of heavens.

If you call God your Father, you acknowledge yourselves His children, to be guided by His wisdom, and to be obedient in all things, knowing that His love is changeless. You will accept His plan for your life. As children of God, you will hold His honor, His character, His family, His work, as the objects of your highest interest. It will be your joy to recognize and honor your relation to your Father, and to every member of His family.

God is our Father, a tender parent, solicitous for His spiritual children. He is pledged to be the protector, counselor, guide, and friend, of all who are obedient to Him.

Rom. 8:17: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

All who enter into a covenant with Jesus Christ become by adoption the children of God. They are cleansed by the regenerating power of the Word, and angels are commissioned to minister unto them. They are baptized in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. They pledge themselves to become active members of His church in the earth. They are to be dead to all the allurements of worldly desires; but in conversation and godliness, they are, through sanctification of the Spirit to exert a living influence for God.

“Heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ,”–what an exalted, dignified position! Separate and distinct from the world, secure from the wily snares of Satan! By their baptismal vows, God’s professed followers have pledged themselves to stand in opposition to evil. The enemy of souls will work with all craft to corrupt their minds. He will seek to introduce his methods into their service for the Master. But there is safety for them if they will heed the injunction: “… be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” .

To what greater honor could we aspire than to be called the children of God? What greater rank could we hold, what greater inheritance could we find, than that which comes to those who are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ?

God so loved the world, what a blessing to this sin lost world that its creator would step in and pay the penalty for the law that mankind broke. Then to give the very best that heaven could give, the gift of His Son; the Father gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John: 3: 16:

Jesus CallingMy friend, God love you, no matter where you are in life, no matter what you done in life there is hope in the Fathers Son Jesus Christ. Pray He will always hear a prayer coming from a repented heart reaching out to Him for forgiveness. Always remember God loves you with unconditional love.

Who’s on first


Mark 10: 45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Who’s on first in your life?

There was an old man who one day had a dream!

Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD


In his dream the Holy Spirit told him to prepare himself for tomorrow the Lord would come and visit him in his house.

The old man got up very early and cleaned his house and made sure everything was dusted and put into its right place. He re-arranged his furnisher so that his special guess would have the best place to sit in his home. The last thing he did was to make some very special cookies just for his guess.

As the day slowly passed the old man notices that his special guess was late.

Soon the door bell rang and the old man jumped up and said at last. But wend he opened the door there was a little boy there. The young boy said hi Mr. I am collecting money to help feed the poor can you please help.

The old man looked at the boy and said sure, please come in and wait right here. The old man went to his room and got some money and gave it to the boy and said I hope this will help son. The boy could not help but notice the cookies on the plate, he said sir would you mind if I have a cookie. The old man said I made them for a very special guess who will be coming to see me today, I am sure he would not notices if a few cookie was missing. The young boy thanked the old man and went his way.

An hour went by and the door bell rang again. The old man rush to open it and see his special guess, but there was only a poor man in old rags standing there who said sir could you spare some food. The old man invited him in and gave him a nice meal and a cookie for dessert; he even found some clothes to keep him warm. And so this baggier went away full and with moor then he asked for.

The old man notices that the day was far spent and his special guess had not come. Just then there was a gentle knock at the door. That must be him the old man said as he rusted to open the door, only to find a little old lady standing their. Sir she said, could you please spare an old lady a place to sit and rest awhile.

So he invited her in, and she found a nice place to rest her tired old legs. The old man got her a cool glass of water as she ate the last of the cookies he made for his special guess. She thanks him for being so kind as she got up to leave.

The old man looked outside as the Sun was now setting the days was over and his special guess had not come. Did he misunderstand something or maybe he done something wrong, he just did not know why.

The old man cleaned up his kitchen and slowly made his way up to his bedroom. Disappointed that his special guess had not come, as he knelt by his bedside he prayed
O Lord, why “why did you not come today.

I waited for you all day long, I prepared my home as you asked me to do, but you did not come, did I do something wrong, O Lord I just don’t understand!

Then he heard a still small voice saying.
My dear friend!
Three times today my shadow passed over your threshold, and three times to day I did visited with you.
I was the young boy collecting money for the poor.
I was the bagger you let in your door.
I was the old lady who sat a rest in your chair.

Each time I knock you let me in and each time you treated me like your special friend. Do we do the same or do we sometime forget to treat others like we would treat Jesus.

Matt 25: 35-40
35: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
40: And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Let us pray!

Who is Jesus: Why would God the Father send His Son to a place like this, a place full of hate, war, and bloodshed?

The Bible tells us that God so loved this world (John: 3:16). The story of redemption is a mystery not only to mankind but unto the Heavenly host and the Billions and Billions of other worlds that God and His Son created. {John: 3:17} For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Jesus the Father only Son came to show us what the Father is like and to show us that He God loves and wants us to all be a part of His Kingdom forever. But in order for us to have eternal life we must believe by faith in what God the Son did in our behalf, and we must do the things God the Son told us to do. John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments. This will show the world who you really love and who is first in your life.

We are not only to love God but also the people all around us, why because God kingdom is a kingdom of love for one another.

Luke 10:
25: And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

No matter where you go in life you will always have a challenge before you. There are always people who believe in God but want to do it there way. This Lawyer believed but not in Jesus, he believed in God but not in Gods Son.

Many believe today in the Son but not in what the Son said to do. I am not a bad person so Jesus will just have to take me as I am. I don’t feel I am doing anything wrong, I go to Church sometimes, and I do pay tithes now and then, I even give a donations to the poor once a year. So you see I am not a bad person at all, I am really good on the inside.

What does Gods word say about this?

I DID IT MY WAY                                                                                                         Prov:16:25:
There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.



OK So here we are back to our Lawyer, what did Jesus say unto him


26: He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
27: And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
28: And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

Our Lawyer did well for himself did he not, but because he was a Lawyer he did not stop there. He though he could our smart Jesus because he felt pride in his heart.

29: But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

Friends do this and live, never question the Lord. Take him at his word, for in his word is life and that life is the life of all mankind.
30: And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

The best way to get peoples attention is with a story: You will find all through the Bible stories that Jesus told, always to illustrate a lesson or to bring home a meaning.

31: And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

Now Jesus was not using the characters in this story just to be mean, Jesus knew there hearts and told the fact as there were. God does not like pride, “Why” because pride started in the heart of Lucifer and was passed on to all mankind at the fall in the Garden.

32: And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

Who was the Levites; they were a people specially chosen by God to bare the Ark of God when Israel was on there way to the promise land. God did set them aside, surely if a Levite saw a man fallen in need of help he would stop and give a hand, but he did not.

33: But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

Who was the Samaritan, they were the outcast, because they were not full blooded Israelite. So these people were looked upon as the low class. Not having part of the promise that God gave to Abraham but yet Jesus said that this “Samaritan had compassion”

34: And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

The Samaritan did not only take care of this mans physical needs just then. He went even further in making sure the needs would be meet after he left. He made arrangements that if the bill would be more then the money left behind, he would pay the balance when he returned.

35: And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

Now let’s look at what reaction the Lawyer had to the question Jesus had for him.

36: Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

The Lawyer had no choice but to answer the question correctly for now he seen clearly his responsibility, not just to his own family, or people living in the same subdivision that he live in, but his responsibility to all mankind.

37: And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

Listen to what Jesus said in the book of

1John 4:20:
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

Have you talked to Jesus lately, did he talk back to you, maybe you were too busy to hear
As Jesus started on His way, a man ran up to Him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life”. Mark 10:17
This young man had fabulous wealth. He was the Bill Gates of 2000 years ago. A young, physically fit, aristocrat. Imagine this wealthy man Kneeling at the feet of Jesus, the penniless prophet from Galilee.

This physically fit young aristocrat had just happened to be watching earlier when Jesus tenderly took the children on his lap and lovingly received and blessed them. He watched as Jesus took these little children and blessed them and he thought, if Jesus can do that for them, He can do that for me. He could bless me. In the meantime, Jesus had moved on. Finally he decided: I’m going to chase after Him. I’ll see if HE will bless me. This mans heart was deeply touched. He felt a love for Jesus and desired to be one of His disciples. He was sincere and earnest. If Jesus could bless the little children He could bless him.

He was a ruler-( Luke 18:18) He was an official of the honored council of the Jews – he was in a high position for his young age. This important ruler kneels before the lowly Jesus, who never held any office or position.
It is a rare event when a young man has the best things this earthly life can offer early in his life. He had youth with its accompanying health. He had position or authority. He was a ruler. He had great wealth.

However he lacked eternal life which is a greater asset than all others combined. If you don’t have eternal life, it doesn’t matter what car you drive, it doesn’t matter where you live. Eternal life is the greatest thing that you can possess.

Jesus looked deeply into the face of this young man, and He recognized that this man was sincere. He read his character. Jesus saw that the man had qualifications which, if united with Jesus, Himself, would result in tremendous success for God.


He could be a fantastic disciple. Look at the qualifications he brought. He also saw that his supreme love of self must be totally eradicated. There was the problem. It must be surrendered.

So Jesus gave the man a test. Notice
(Mark 10:18 NIV) “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone.

Then Jesus proceeded to list six of the commandments that prohibit wrong actions against our neighbors. Obviously Jesus believed in all Ten Commandments. He only listed six of them. These six were chosen for a divine test.

He proceeds to list all those that have to do with wrong actions against people. These were the six that the rich young ruler was lacking in. Jesus knew that, and so He listed all of them: 19:”You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.'”

20: “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.” Jewish boys, at the age of thirteen and onward were considered men, and so they were responsible, they were taught to love the law of God.. He said, “I’ve kept them all. I haven’t lacked on one.

The rich young man was saying: In all my short life not once have I ever hurt anyone. But Jesus was talking more than avoiding evil. Jesus is asking if the man is willing to do some positive good to others.

There are millions of good people in this world. They have never hurt anyone. Have you seen this type of people? They sometimes sit in the pews of every Church; They avoid breaking the law and live a decent life. But they are lost. That’s the rich young ruler’s case.

Respectability involves a prohibition against doing wrong but not includes doing something positive or right. Christianity not only avoids evil but it performs a positive good. The rich young ruler had never stolen anything, but he had never been sacrificially generous. He had never killed anyone, but he hadn’t gone out saving any lives, either. He had avoided doing the wrong, but he really wasn’t involved in doing anything good, except accumulation wealth.

Now, he claimed to have kept all six of these commandments. Did he? No, he did not. It wasn’t true that he kept all six. Actually you can’t keep the second six commandments unless you have kept the first 4 commandments.

You have to keep them all. The world and its riches had become his idol. He loved wealth. God was not first in his heart. Therefore you can’t put people ahead unless God is first. You cannot unselfishly love people unless you have experienced the depth of the love of God.

Jesus listed the commandments that deal with our relationship to our fellow human beings. This was the rich mans downfall. He loved money more God, more than all else.

I think it’s true sometimes that America is headed toward a cashless society. You’ve heard this. We’re going to do away with all cash, just going to have debit cards, and have a national identity. If it is true that America is heading towards a cashless system, some of us are ahead of the times.
Some of us are already in a cashless society: we don’t have any money. But not this rich man; he had all kinds of money. Was money his problem? No, money was not his problem. I’ll tell you what his problem was in a minute.

Look at verse 21:- Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.

” Give all your money to the poor, the ones that are standing beside the road. Do you ever see them holding up signs that says, “I am homeless. I’m starved to death. I will work for food and money. What is he basically saying to you? “I want your money.” Do you give to those people? Well, this man was told, “you sell everything you’ve got. Go out and find the poor people and you give all of your money to these poor people. Then you will have treasure in heaven. Then come and follow me.”

No-one can serve God and Money at the same time. It doesn’t work. You have to choose, and so Jesus imposed this test to detect covetousness. The man was a covetous person.

Many of the examinations of life come to test our allegiance to God. Like Zacchaeus, the central issue here is not money. The central test was not selling everything.

Salvation does not come through having an empty bank account. Every time your check bounces, you say, “That proves that I’m saved.” Not at all!! If that’s the case a lot of people are saved because they’re out there bouncing checks.

The issue here is not getting rid of all your assets and selling everything and giving it away. The true Christian places his trust completely in Jesus. That’s the issue. He places his trust completely in Jesus and not in his wealth or his money.

God the Father and God the Son showed what true love was at the Cross in Calvary. Not just to this world but to all of Creation. He showed us how to live in peace by putting God First and loving our neighbor

God is love and God expect from all of His created being love in return, but the love God wants is a love that is unconditional a total surrender of oneself into the hands of his creator God. In the book of (Genesis: 3:) is the story of how man fell away from his creator God.

God gave to man the same as He gives to all being whether spirit or flesh; the freedom of choice. For Adam and Eve it was a test of obedience, you see if you truly love someone you will do what they ask with out questions. The serpent made Eve believe that God was holding something back from them and so her love for God became distrust.

When she went to her husband Adam right away he knew it was the evil one that they have been told about. But here Adam sin was not only is eating of the forbidding tree, he sinned because he did not total trust God. He knew that God said “for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Gen 2:17)

Adam could not see how God could fix this problem; he could not see being separated from his wife Eve. Adam loved God but here he loved his Wife Eve more then he loved his creator God, Adam broke the first commandment.

We must learn to love God first above everything else in life. We must love God more then our Earthly Mothers and Fathers, more then our Brothers and Sisters, more then our Wife and Children, we must learn to love God more then our own life. God must be number one in your life; it is a total surrender into the hands of God by faith.

Look at {Exodus: 20: 3} Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Do you understand what God is saying, we are to put nothing before our love to God. God must be first in our life, look at (Rev: 12: 11) and they loved not their lives unto the death.

When you learn to love God first in your life you will begin to understand how true Christian in the passed would rather die then to dishonor the God they love.

Understand God must be first in your life, God must be first, God must be first, God must be first. Holy holy holy is the Lord God Almighty is what the angle is crying (Rv:4:8:)

Everything in this world must come second. Do you know how and why Jesus could do miracle, yes He was also God but He did not use His Godly power, He used His love to and through His Father to do all miracles.

John:14:12: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Look at the prayer Jesus said in John 11:
41: And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
42: And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.
43: And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
44: And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
Jesus had already prayed to His father to preformed this miracle, why look at the scriptures. So that the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

Jesus wanted us to know with out a drought that the Father God has sent His Son to show us the love that the Father, Son, and Spirit God has for all His creation.

Can you understand what is going on, God the almighty Father Loves us with a Godly love that is passed mankind’s understanding. God loves us so much that His did not even spare His Son His only Son but gave Him as a ransom for the payment of the law that man broke in the garden(Ezek:18:4:) the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

Can you understand that the death that Jesus went through on the Cross was Godly love was being ripped away from Gods Son Jesus who new no sin so that He could pay the price of sin for all who by faith would believe in Him.

Our understanding is so limited of the cost that the Father& Son paid in order to save man

All God wanted from man was his love in return for all the good things and blessing that God gave to us, but what did man do. We spit on His blessing as if they were nothing, to our creator we became angry because we wanted everything our way.

Conscientious ObjectorMt:7:12: Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Jesus never gave up; by His life and His death He made a way for Mankind to be reconnected to our heavenly Father, why because of Love. We can’t change ourselves we are born of sin, but by giving our life to God the Father He will do the changing in our life through His Holy Spirit that He gives to all who believe in Him.
                                                                                          John: 14:
13: And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14: If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.


Everything is possible to someone who believe and has made God first in there lives.

Mt:21:22: And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Mk:9:23: Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Put your life and faith in the hands of a God that Loves you and died to show you what true love is about.

May God be with you and continue to send blessing upon you.

John 3:16



One day when I was about 16 I was sitting in a dance hall drinking some bear. You see in Honduras when I was a young boy if you are old enough to buy it you are old enough to drink it. Well while I was sitting there drinking and day dreaming there at the door stood the most beautiful Woman my eyes have every seen. In my mind I was thinking to my self, man I wish she would walk over here and sit down with me. It was about then I seen her looking at me and boy my heart started to beat a little faster. Then she headed my way and all I could feel was the blood in my body moving faster. When I looked again she was standing right in fount of me asking me something but by then all my blood was in my feet and I could not say a word. It all happened just like I dreams it would but I became dumbfounded.

You see my cousin knew her and gave me a letter to give to her while I was there getting a transmission repaired. So she wanted to thanks me for bringing it and told me something to tell my cousin when I went back to the Island I lived on.

Well that was about it, but man I never could forget that first time I seen her. Then a year or so later, she came to visit my cousin and when I saw her aging I was not drinking this time. I told myself I need to get to know her so I hung around with my cousin in hope to get a date with her that night. Well that night we all went to the dance hall and I got to hold her close to me, then I walked my cousin and her home but before letting her go we kissed and man it was like no other kiss I every had.

LoveWell about a year later we got married; wow is all I could say. In my prayers at night I always prayer asking God to send into my live a good woman and boy He did just that. We have been married now for just over 40 years, we have our up’s and down’s but we love each other with a love that can withstand the problems of life.

God loves us with a love passed understanding, let’s search the Bible and see what it has to say about the love God has for His children


Let us Pray!


Let’s go to the Bible to find the answer about Love and exactly what is true love.

I have seen a lot of people who get married and just a few years later get devoiced. Sometime they have children who must suffer because of the parents not being able to live with each other. What went wrong, a few years before they were in love and now they hate each other; were they truly in love? The problem today is that people don’t understand the true meaning of what love is. To most people it is a love at first sight and then a few months later it is fight.

When you truly love someone you look over there faults and none of us are born with out faults. This is what makes the different in a marriage lasting 5 years and one lasting 75 years; being able to love and forgive each other as many times as it in needed.

So what about God, what about His love for mankind, the bible tells us in Genesis 1: 1 that In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Then in Genesis 1: 26 it tells us, Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Wow did you read that, we mankind male and female were created in the very image of our God and creator.

Now take a look at John: 3:16

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

What does that mean, for God so loved the world He gave His only Son, and by believing in Him you will never perish but will have everlasting life.

When God first created man He created him perfect and without a defect, without sin. So what happened what changed, did God stop loving mankind. Let’s go back to the Bible and see if we can find a reason.

Look at Genesis: 2

7: And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

8: And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

9: And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

God in His love for mankind did everything He could do so that His newly creation could enjoy the blessing of his maker. But there was one condition that God told them, one little test that God made to see if Mankind would love his creator back for all the blessing and care that He God was giving to them daily.

16: And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

17: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

This one tree was a test of Mankind obedience, will mankind love and give his creator God his full allegiance or no.

Before the entrance of evil, there was only peace and joy throughout the universe. All was in perfect harmony with the Creator’s will. Love for God was supreme, love for one another impartial. Christ the Word, the only begotten of God, was one with the eternal Father,–one in nature, in character, and in purpose,–the only being in all the universe that could enter into all the counsels and purposes of God.

By Christ, the Father wrought in the creation of all heavenly beings. “By him were all things created, that are in Heaven, . . . whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers;” [COL. 1:16.] and to Christ, equally with the Father, all Heaven gave allegiance.

     The law of love being the foundation of the government of God, the happiness of all created beings depended upon their perfect accord with its great principles of righteousness.

gods-love[1]God desires only one thing from all his creatures and that is the service of love,– homage that springs from an intelligent appreciation of his character. He takes no pleasure in a forced allegiance, and to all he grants freedom of will, that they may render him voluntary service.

     But there was one that chose to pervert this freedom. Sin originated with him, who, next to Christ, had been most honored of God, and who stood highest in power and glory among the inhabitants of Heaven. Before his fall, Lucifer was first of the covering cherubs, holy and undefiled.

“Thus saith the Lord God: Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering.” “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so; thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.” [EZE. 28:12-15, 17.]

     Lucifer might have remained in favor with God, beloved and honored by all the angelic host, exercising his noble powers to bless others and to glorify his Maker. But, says the prophet,

“Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness.” [EZE. 28:12-15, 17.]

Little by little, Lucifer came to indulge a desire for self-exaltation. “Thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God.” “Thou hast said: . . . I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation.” “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.” [EZE. 28:6; ISA. 14:13, 14.]

So instead of seeking to make God supreme in the affections and allegiance of his creatures, it was Lucifer’s endeavor to win their service and homage to himself. And, coveting the honor which the infinite Father had bestowed upon his Son, this prince of angels aspired the power which it was the prerogative of Christ alone to exercise.

Lucifer allowed jealousy of Christ to prevail, and he became the more determined. Pride in his own glory nourished the desire for supremacy. The high honors conferred upon Lucifer were not appreciated as the gift of God,

Lucifer now wanted nothing more then to have this new world as his own, to cause mankind to sin and to drought the love that God so freely gave to all.

Genesis: 3:

1: Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2: And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

4: And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Right here is where all the problems started, it is the same problems we have in our world today, who do you believe; God or what someone else tells you. God said that if you eat of this tree you will Die, life will not go on. Then Satan steps in and said well you shall not surely die.

Do you know how many of the worlds great Religious Leaders today don’t fully understand what happens to a person when they die? Many will tell you when you die you keep living in Heaven or Hell, but that is not what Gods word says. The Bible tells us that when you die you do just that you die you stop living.

Jesus Himself called death a sleep, as I always say if God says it; stop believing in anything else and believe God.

Look at John:11:

11: These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

12: Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

13: Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

14: Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

Jesus the Son of God who is God called death a sleep so why would some Religious Leaders want to tell you anything different, maybe because they are still hearing Satan speak, well they are not surely dead.

Now listen as Satan tells some truth, and this is a problem. Satan does not always lie, what he does is to mix a little lie into truth.

Genesis: 3: 5: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Oh yes our eyes were open alright and we knew about Good & Evil, also about sickness and pain, about suffering and dying, in that way yes we were like God. But that is what God did not want for us to ever know, He wanted us to know only good, only Love, only happiness, only peace and security with a God of Love.

Time and time again all through the Bible we see a God of love doing all He can to bring His wayward children back to Him. Just like a good Mother or Father telling there children not to touch a hot stove because it will burn you. God is telling us that He and He alone is the God who created us and wants our love back to Him so that He can give us what is good.  

6: And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Just like today’s world people are always looking for more, looking for something better, looking to get ahead of the next door neighbors. We are never satisfies with what we have we always want more of something to make us wiser, richer and better then others.

7: And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

So they believed what a devil told them rather then what there creator God told them. God said if you eat it you will die and that is what happens we die we don’t go on living in heaven or hell, God said we Die, believe what God has said not man.

Now can you understand what John: 3:16 is all about, it is about a love story that is beyond mans imagination. About a God of love who did not want to see His beautiful creating die. But because there was a law that said in Ezek:18:20: The soul that sinneth, it shall die. God the Son stepped in and took mans place, He God came to live as a man so He God as a man can die for every one of us.

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

It is only by what God the Son did in behalf of mankind that we can live again in the last days when God the Son comes back to call all who died believing in Him to life once again

John:6:40: And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

When did Jesus say, He would raise up all who believed in Him, I will raise him up at the last day. Now just like Eve, you can believe what God said or you can believe what some pastor or priest told you. Me I am going to believe what God is saying

Now let’s look at the book of Revelation 20:5: But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.6: Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

According to the Bible when you die you are dead, you are not living someplace else. The Bible is saying the dead who are not a part of the first resurrection will not live again until after a 1000 years. Where will they be, still in the grave still sleeping, but when Jesus comes back then and only then will he call the Unrighteous back to life.

Why is this, read again in the Bible, not what I think but what the Bible is saying.

Rv:20: 11: And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

Here is describe a judgment sean in Heaven look at the next verse

12: And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

So here all the unrighteous are called back to life, this is called the second resurrection. Why; for judgment of what was done in the flesh; the righteous are already living they were all part of the first resurrection. Look at verse 13

13: 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.

So no matter where you died or how you died when God calls, you will come back to life for the judgment. After the judgment comes the punishment, it is there that all evil will be destroyed forever.

14: And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.15: And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Here is where Hell, Death, Evil, the Unrighteous, and Satin will all be casted into; the Bible calls it the second Death. This is a very hard time for God because He did everything He could do to save everyone of us, He gave us a choice believe what He tells us or what someone under the power of Satin tells you. The Truth is all in the Bible so no one has an excuse that they did not know.

Now all who believed in Jesus and what He did to save them, and all who did as Jesus told them to do. John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments. Will live forever in Heaven, where there is no more pain, sickness, no more suffering, and no more death.

Look at Revelation:21: God is telling us a little bit of why we can expect when we get to Heaven.

7: He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8: 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.

Friend God the Father and God the Son and the Holy Spirit loves each and every one of us. There is nothing more that could have been done to save mankind, God the Son even gave His life and endures the shame and brutal death of being nailed on a cross by the people he came to save.

Luke:23: 34: Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

Jesus Praying for UsEven while hanging on the cross, Gods love did not stop, even there came the words of forgiveness to all of us

John: 3: 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life

Friend remember there is nothing that can separate you from the Love of God except for you to choose to separate yourself from Him, and even then He will be waiting for you, to forgive you and take you back as if you never left.

Restoring Gods Truth


Don’t give up!


John: 15:12: This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.


There was once a bunch of tiny frogs who arranged a running competition.

The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower. A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants…

The race began…      Honestly:          No one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.

You heard statements such as:       “NO, WAY     it’s too difficult!!”

“They will NEVER make it to the top.” 

“Not a chance that they will succeed.          The tower is too high!”

The tiny frogs began collapsing.   One by one…

Except for those, who in a fresh tempo,     were climbing higher and higher..

The crowd continued to yell,        “It is too difficult!!!        No one will make it!”

More tiny frogs got tired and gave up…      But ONE continued higher and higher and higher…

This one tiny frog however wouldn’t give up!

At the end, everyone else had given up climbing the tower.  Except for the one tiny frog, who after a big effort, was the only one who reached the

THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?

A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal.

It turned out…                       That the winner was DEAF!!!!


Let’s Us Pray!

Whatever you do Never listen to other people’s tendencies to be negative or pessimistic

Because they take your most wonderful dreams and wish them away from you–
the ones you have in your heart!

Always think of the power words have before speaking.

Because everything you hear and read will affect your actions!

Therefore:      ALWAYS    be… POSITIVE!   

And above all: Be DEAF when people tell YOU that you cannot fulfill your dreams!

Always think:   God and I can do this!

Most people walk in and out of your life……but FRIENDS leave footprints
in your heart!


We all need to have some encouragement at time in our life.


We all get Tired, we get Lazy, Wore out, Burnt out, even feel Defeated at times.


Especially when we hear people telling us,   you can’t do that!  It’s too much for you!  No one really expected you to complete it!


In our weakness, we find strength only in the Lord.


When all the world seams to be against us, we know that He is right there, He is there to give guidance, to give instruction, and to give us consul when needed.


God’s love is forever with His people who have put there Trust, there Faith, there very Live into His hands.  He never gives up on you.


In the opening story what made the difference between the frogs who did not finish and the one who did.   Being —-  Deaf to what people were saying.


Sometimes we too need to learn to shut the world out. Don’t listen to what others are saying to us, or about us.   Just continue doing what Jesus said.


Do what God is telling you to do, and go where God is telling you to go.


What do you think would have happened if Jesus listened to what others were telling Him, that He was not the Son of God! That He was not the Savior!


When the world does not encourage or help you, remember God love never stops.

What would have happen if Jesus would have became discouraged?  He almost did.


Turn to the book of Matthew chapter 3:

Look at the story of Jesus baptism, hear what His Father said.


  1. Jesus at His Baptism:


16: And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

17: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.


All of Jesus life he heard only negativeness from people around Him. His own Brothers and Sisters, His Aunts & Uncles, the Religious Leaders.

They all thought Jesus had some loose screws in his head They failure to realize the what the Scriptures said about Him.  


Do you hear the same things where you work, how about at Home, how about at Church? People telling you that you are not good enough, you are just not able to do this.


It is almost like they want to see you fail, They themselves can’t do it and they want to make sure you can’t as well..


Funny with Jesus it was only the Common people who heard and believed in Him, because He gave them hope.


Hope that there was something better for them then this life of pain & suffering. Hope of a place where there will never be Hunger, Sickness, or see Death again.


All through Jesus life He did only works of Good, He showed Love, & compassion, But the world hated Him all the moreWho Hated Him,  The very people who he came to save.


  1.  Look at what is said in the Book of  Luke 22:

40: And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

41: And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,


“Tarry ye here,    ” He told his disciples,    “and watch with Me.” 


He went but a little distance from them, but not so far that they could not see and hear Him as He fell prostrate upon the ground.


Why was He here, what was He doing, He was paying your death, all your sins and all my sins. Look now at what it was doing to Him.


He felt that by sin He was being separated from His Father. The gulf was so broad, so black, so deep, that His spirit shuddered before it.


But In this agony He must not exert His divine power to escape or save His self.


How many of us if we had the power in our hand, would not have freed ourselves and said tuff luck and walked away


But not Jesus:   As a man He must suffer the consequences of man’s sin. As a man He must endure the wrath of God against transgression. 


Christ was now standing in a different attitude from that in which He had never stood before.


His suffering can best be described in the words of the prophet, “Awake, O sword, against My shepherd, and against the man that is My fellow, saith the Lord of hosts.” Zech. 13:7.

Holy angle spirit angel

As the substitute and surety for sinful man, Christ was suffering under divine justice. He saw what justice meant.


Hitherto He had been as an intercessor for others; now He longed to have someone intercessor for Him.


As Christ felt His unity with the Father broken up, He feared that in His human nature He would be unable to endure the coming conflict with the powers of darkness.


In the wilderness of temptation, when the destiny of the human race had been at stake, Christ was then conqueror.


Now the tempter had come for the last fearful struggle. For this he had been preparing during the three years of Christ’s ministry.


Everything was at stake with him. If Satan failed here, his hope of mastery was lost; the kingdoms of the world would finally become Christ’s; he himself would be overthrown and cast out.


But if Christ could be overcome, the earth would become Satan’s kingdom, and the human race would be forever in his power.


With the issues of the conflict before Him, Christ’s soul was filled with dread of separation from God.


Satan told Him that if He became the surety for a sinful world, the separation would be eternal. He would be identified with Satan’s kingdom, and would nevermore be one with God.


  Again the Son of God was seized with superhuman agony, and fainting and exhausted, He staggered back to the place of His former struggle.


His suffering was even greater than before. As the agony of soul came upon Him, “His sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.”


The cypress and palm trees were the silent witnesses of His anguish. From their leafy branches dropped heavy dew upon His stricken form, as if nature wept over its Author wrestling alone with the powers of darkness. 


A short time before, Jesus had stood like a mighty cedar, withstanding the storm of opposition that spent its fury upon Him.


Stubborn wills, and hearts filled with malice, had striven in vain to confuse and overpower Him. He stood forth in divine majesty as the Son of God.


Now He was like a reed beaten and bent by the angry storm. He had approached the consummation of His work a conqueror, having at each step gained the victory over the powers of darkness.


As one already glorified, He had claimed oneness with God.


He had spoken to His disciples in words of courage and tenderness.


Now had come the hour of the power of darkness. Now His voice was heard on the still evening air, not in tones of triumph, but in human anguish.


The words of the Savior were borne to the ears of the drowsy disciples, “O My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me, except I drink it, Thy will be done.”


  The first impulse of the disciples was to go to Him; but He had bidden them tarry there, watching and prayer.


But when Jesus came to them, He found them still sleeping.


Jesus longing for companionship, for some words from His disciples which would bring relief, and break the spell of darkness that well-nigh overpowered Him.


But their eyes were heavy; “neither did they know what to answer Him.” His presence aroused them.


They saw His face marked with the bloody sweat of agony, and they were filled with fear. His anguish of mind they could not understand. “His visage was so marred more than any man, and His form more than the sons of men.” Isa. 52:14


Turning away, Jesus sought again His retreat, and fell prostrate, overcome by the horror of a great darkness.


The humanity of the Son of God trembled in that trying hour. He prayed not now for His disciples that their faith might not fail, but for His own tempted, agonized soul.


The awful moment had come–that moment which was to decide the destiny of the world. The fate of humanity trembled in the balance.


Christ might even now refuse to drink the cup apportioned to guilty man.


It was not yet too late. He might wipe the bloody sweat from His brow, and leave man to perish in his iniquity.


He might say, Let the transgressor receive the penalty of his sin, and I will go back to My Father.


Will the Son of God drink the bitter cup of humiliation and agony? Will the innocent suffer the consequences of the curse of sin, to save the guilty?


The words fall tremblingly from the pale lips of Jesus, “O My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me, except I drink it, Thy will be done.”


     Three times has He uttered that prayer. Three times has humanity shrunk from the last, crowning sacrifice.


But now the history of the human race comes up before the world’s Redeemer.


He sees that the transgressors of the law, if left to themselves, must perish.


He sees the helplessness of man. He sees the power of sin. The woes and lamentations of a doomed world rise before Him.


He beholds its impending fate, and His decision is made.


He will save man at any cost to Himself.


He accepts His baptism of blood, that through Him millions may gain everlasting life.


He has left the courts of heaven, where all is purity, happiness, and glory, to save the one lost sheep, the one world that has fallen by transgression.


And He will not turn from His mission. He will become the propitiation of a race that has willed to sin.


His prayer now breathes only submission: “If this cup may not pass away from Me, except I drink it, He said My Father  Thy will be done.”


Having made the decision, He fell dying to the ground from which He had partially risen.


Where now were His disciples, to place their hands tenderly beneath the head of their fainting Master, and bathe that brow, marred indeed more than the sons of men?


Jesus trod the wine press alone, and of the people there was none with Him.


     Please don’t think that the Father did not suffer with His Son for in that trying hour all of heaven was still as the Father and Son agonize over the one lost sheep. 


Angels beheld His agony. They saw their Lord enclosed by legions of satanic forces, His nature weighed down with a shuddering, mysterious dread. There was silence in heaven.


No harp was touched.

Could mortals have viewed the amazement of the angelic host as in silent grief as they watched the Father separating His beams of light, of love, and glory from His beloved Son, they would better understand how offensive in His sight is sin.


     The worlds un-falling and the heavenly angels had watched with intense interest as the conflict drew to its close.


Satan and his confederacy of evil, the legions of apostasy, watched intently this great crisis in the work of redemption.


The powers of good and evil waited to see what answer would come to Christ’s thrice-repeated prayer.


Angels had longed to bring relief to the divine sufferer, but this might not be.


No way of escape was found for the Son of God.


In this awful crisis, when everything was at stake, when the mysterious cup trembled in the hand of the sufferer, the heavens opened.


 A light shone forth amid the stormy darkness of the crisis hour, and the mighty angel who stands in God’s presence, occupying the position from which Satan fell, came to the side of Christ.


The angel came not to take the cup from Christ’s hand, but to strengthen Him to drink it, with the assurance of the Father’s love.


He came to give power to the divine-human suppliant.


He pointed Him to the open heavens, telling Him of the souls that would be saved as the result of His sufferings.


He assured Him that His Father is greater and more powerful than Satan, that His death would result in the utter discomfiture of Satan, and that the kingdom of this world would be given to the saints of the Most High.


He told Him that He would see of the travail of His soul, and be satisfied, for He would see a multitude of the human race saved eternally.


Christ’s agony did not cease, but His depression and discouragement left Him.


The storm had in nowise abated, but He who was its object was strengthened to meet its fury.


He came forth calm and peaceful. A heavenly peace rested upon His bloodstained face.


He had borne that which no human being could ever bear; for He had tasted the sufferings of death for every man.


The sleeping disciples had been suddenly awakened by the light surrounding the Savior.  


They saw the angel bending over their prostrate Master.


They saw him lift the Savior’s head upon his bosom, and point toward heaven. They heard his voice, like sweetest music, speaking words of comfort and hope.


The disciples recalled the scene upon the mount of transfiguration.


They remembered the glory that in the temple had encircled Jesus, and the voice of God that spoke from the cloud.


Now that same glory was again revealed, and they had no further fear for their Master.


He was under the care of His Father; a mighty angel had been sent to protect Him.


Again the disciples in their weariness yield to the strange stupor that overpowers them.                     

 Again Jesus finds them sleeping.


That same night they took Jesus and place Him before a marked trial of Evil men. But he stood before then not as one having been defeated, But as one who has gained the Victory


3.  Jesus at the Cross:  Luke 23:

39: And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.

40: But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

41: And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.

42: And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

43: And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.


On the Cross there was only one man who called upon the savior, Even while Jesus was suffering on the Cross Himself, His ears were open to hear the cry for help.


Have you become discouraged in your walk with Jesus, when we pass out literature and no one seams to accept what you have. When we have evangelistic seminars and no one comes. When we preach the word and there are no followers.


Do you get dishearten because no one heed the warning, and you feel like a failure.


We all need to be encouraged at time to complete the work giving us. Somehow when we have other pulling for us it makes the road easier to bare.


It can’t be explained and we don’t know why it is.


But pain and suffering somehow becomes bearable when we know you are not alone when we know others are praying for us.


A man was sleeping one night in his cabin when suddenly his room filled
with light, and God appeared. The Lord told the man he had work for him to
do, and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin. The Lord explained
that the man was to push against the rock with all his might. So, this the
man did, day after day.

For many years he toiled from sun up to sun down, his shoulders set
squarely against the cold, massive surface of the unmoving rock, pushing
with all of his might. Each night the man returned to his cabin sore and
worn out, feeling that his whole day had been spent in vain.

Since the man was showing discouragement, the adversary (Satan) decided to
enter the picture by placing thoughts into the weary mind: “You have been
pushing against that rock for a long time, and it hasn’t moved.” Thus, he
gave the man the impression that the task was impossible and that he was a

These thoughts discouraged and disheartened the man. Satan said, “Why kill
yourself over this? Just put in your time, giving just the minimum effort;
and that will be good enough.”

That’s what the weary man planned to do, but decided to make it a Matter of
Prayer and to take his troubled thoughts to the Lord.

“Lord,” he said, “I have labored long and hard in your service, putting all
my strength to do that which you have asked. Yet, after all this time, I
have not even budged that rock by half a millimeter. What is wrong? Why am
I failing?

The Lord responded compassionately, “My friend, when I asked you to serve
Me and you accepted, I told you that your task was to push against the rock
with all of your strength, which you have done. Never once did I mention to
you that I expected you to move it. Your task was to push. And now you
come to Me with your strength spent, thinking that you have failed. But, is
that really so?

“Look at yourself. Your arms are strong and muscled, your back sinewy and
brown; your hands are callused from constant pressure, your legs have
become massive and hard. Through opposition you have grown much, and your
abilities now surpass that which you used to have.

“True, you haven’t moved the rock. But your calling was to be obedient and
to push and to exercise your faith and trust in My wisdom. That you have
done. Now I, my friend, will move the rock.”

*At times, when we hear a word from God, we tend to use our own intellect
to decipher what He wants, when actually what God wants is just a simple
obedience and faith in Him.


At time we hear people telling us like satin you can’t do it.


You can’t Speak, You can’t Teach, You can’t Preach, You can’t, You can’t, You can’t.


When people are putting you down, when you hear the voice of Satan telling you what you can’t, we need to look to the word of God that tells us.


I can do,    I can do,    I can do…….


Phil:4:13: I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.


Don’t let the world stop you from reaching the finish line,


Sometimes all you need is to become Deaf to the world in order to hear Jesus.


Whatever you do always remember” Never Give Up”
