Crawfish Christians?


What does it mean when you tell someone they are crawfishing!

Well down here in Louisiana it is a way of saying to back up, move backwards, to deny a statement, to go back on your word generally a Cajun term.

images[4]How is it that so many different Christian Denominations & Churches say they all believe in and keep all Ten of Gods Commandments? But if you look carful into their doctoring you can see that they really don’t keep all Ten of Gods Holy Commandments. And when you ask them about the 4th Commandments they crawfish saying we keep Sunday as our holy day of worship.

How do you think Gods feels about that?

I find in my Bible that God the Father and God the Son throughout all History wanted nothing more than a people who would be obedience without question to Gods in doing all that God asked

Adam & Eve failed when they ate of the tree of knowledge of Good and Evil. This was not really something hard that God asked of them, it was very small, you can eat from every tree except this one. Was God specific in what He said, was He being too hard, not at all it was only a test giving to mankind to see where his loyalty would be.
God also warned them to be on guard because of the rebellion that took place in Heaven so that Satan would not deceive them and cause them to sin.

Genesis: 2:
15 Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

God’s love for mankind was so great that nothing would be spared or withheld in the creation of this new world for man to live on. Everything was made perfect and in the book of Genesis we find that God saw and said behold that it was good.

But it was not long before Satan found his way to the new created human, and the very first thing he said was a lie that most Christians still believe today. God said you will surely Die if you eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil and Satan say you will not surely Die. Today when someone Dies Christian believe they go right to heaven or to hell, but that is not what the Bible says or teaches, but that is another sermon.

Genesis: 3: 4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.

Adam & Eve both failed the test of loyalty and faith in God. But come on now, it was just one little piece of fruit that’s all, the problem is that it was one little piece of fruit that God said not to eat and on the day you do eat it, God said you will surely die.

Is God exact in what He tell us to do, yes He is, When God gives a command it is to be followed to the tee, nothing is to be added and nothing is to be taking away. God said it, so believe it, and that should settle it once and for all.

Let’s look at Genesis 6:
5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Why and how did Noah find grace in the eyes of God. Noah followed what God said, he did not turn to the Left or Right even a little. If God said it, he believed it and did as God commanded. So while all the world around him were busy having fun and enjoying a life full of sin, humble Noah was faithful to his God, and so God remember Noah.

God gave Noah a massage, a massage to preach to all the world, and God gave Noah 120 years to tell people of the soon coming destruction and that safety will be found for everyone who will be in the Ark that God is providing nothing else.

Genesis 6: 22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

Noah did according to all that God commanded him, what do you think would have happened if Noah would have cut corners in Gods directions of building the ark. If Noah would have cut even one little corner in the building of the ark, it might have sprung a leak and sank. Is God particular when He is giving direction or a commandment, you bet He is. God wants His children to obey His commandments the exact way He gave them with no deviation, any deviation from Gods way is Sin.

Genesis: 7: 1. Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. 2 You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his female; two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female; 3 also seven each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth. 4 For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.” 5 And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him.

What would have happened if Noah did not feel it was time for him and his family to go into the ark just yet, come on God you not serious about this flooding the world thing are you.

Noah knew one thing about God, and that was to take God at His word, when God says something believe it and do as God said to do.

If you read through the Bible you will find a lot of people who God dealt with, and they all knew one thing. That is when God says something that is what He mean, never depart from it because God does not change. Hebrew: 13: 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

These days you can find a Church to fit everyone needs, if you don’t like one just go down the street and walk into another. There are Christian Churches that are more like a Rock band style to walking and falling in the spirit, just take your pick. But was this how it was in the days of the first Church, when Paul preached Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. Where then did this doctrine come from

2 Cor: 11: 4. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

Turn with me to the book of Act, this is very importance that you not only read but also understand what Paul is saying. Here Paul is telling his followers, in some of the Churches while on his way back to Jerusalem that he might never again see their faces. And there is something very importance he must share with them before he goes.

Act: 20: 26 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. 27 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

Paul was not afraid to tell his followers the truth; the truth is why so many of the Jews were upset at what they called this new teaching. But the problem was that it was not new, the Jews were so far off course from following God that they could not see the Truth standing right in front of them in the form of the Son of God, and we are no different today. We are so far off course from following the truth that many so called Christians want nothing to do with truth, they want it their way.

28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. 29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Again Paul is very clear in his teaching that after he is gone that others who he calls grievous wolves will enter in among them, not sparing the flock. In our days we see all these so called TV Evangelist and their lavish lifestyle that says they are nothing like Paul or even Jesus who they preach. Some of them live in homes worth over 2 or 3 million dollars and drive the best and most expensive cars on the market. Does that not tell you something, are we so blind today that we don’t see this as sin?

1 Timothy: 6: 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

This is why Paul could say that he covered no man’s silver or gold or clothing. He worked throughout the day and preach to them with every opportunity he had and on every Sabbath: Jews and Gentiles.

31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. 32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. 33 I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel. 34 Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.

Our world today needs Men like Paul, who because of love for his savior Jesus Christ he went without food without drink without everything except Faith. Faith that his God will supply his needs and that his God will send His Holy Spirit before him to make ready a people to hear the words of Truth.

Paul never changed any of the Laws that God gave to the Jews, remember in Paul time there were no New Testament it has not been written yet, Paul preach from the Old Testament the same Laws and Commandments that Jesus preached, nothing changed why because God does not change.

Does God Changed, will He alter His plans and go back on His word. The answer is No God does not change and He will never go back on His word, then why do some Christian say oh that 4th commitment thing was changed, God really doesn’t care what day you keep as long as you keep one that’s ok . Is that not being a hypocrite?
Matthew: 24: 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Who was the God that gave the children of Israel the Ten Commandments? Jesus right, and when Jesus came He worshiped the Father on what day? The 7th day Sabbath right? In the Bible you will find no command telling Physical Israel or Spiritual Israel that the 4 commandment day of worship or any of the Ten Commandments has changed.

Jesus wrote the Ten Commandments Law Himself on two tablets of stone, He did not leave that to Moses or to anyone else. Why because Gods law is a part of His Character, God is Holy and His Law is Holy, God is perfect and His Law is perfect, because His Law is a reflection of Himself.

When God says to do something and gives directions on how to do it there is no cutting corners or doing it 99.9%, with God it is 100 present Gods way or nothing. Why because He is God, He is the Creator, He is the one who gives Life and apart from Him there is only death.

Now it is true a lot of good Faithful Christian men and women have no idea that the Church of Roman changed Gods Holy day of worship from Sabbath the 7th day to Sunday the 1st day of the week. They are completely innocent of not knowing this truth. James: 4: 17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
But on the other hand there are a lot of Christian men and women and Church leaders who know the truth but will not teach it. This is a sin on their part, because they know and are willfully disobeying a commandment of God for the doctrine of Man.

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. Jesus is very very clear on this matter, that nothing in the Law Old Testament or New Testament will change or has change until the Earth is made new at His second coming.

Now there were some Leviticus Laws that came to an end when Jesus died on the cross, why because they pointed to Jesus as the Lamb of God who will take away the Sins of this world. The fulfillment of these laws met their type in Jesus, so they were made void when Jesus fulfilled them as he sacrificed, His own God giving life for all mankind. These Laws was a shadow of things to come read it for yourself. When Jesus came they ended because He was the lamb of God who take away the sins of this world.

Colossians: 2: 16 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, 17 which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ

Hebrews: 10: 10 For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect

These Laws of Sacrificing animals and the keeping of New Moon and Sabbaths were speaking of a future event that would come, a time when Jesus Himself the Lamb of God will come and take away the sins of the world by His death

11 And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God,

Gods Son Jesus was sacrifice once for all men, women and children who by faith in Him believed that He was who He claimed to be

So you see my friend if you are still Crawfishing about Gods Law and Commandments it is time to get out of the water and remember. Hebrews: 13: 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

You will do good if you never forget this one thing, God will never change. His word is Truth and Truth does not change but it will go out and do what it is intended to do in the heart and minds of True Christians.  Jeremiah: 29: 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Deuteronomy: 4: 29 But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.

God wants a relationship with His people, the ones who Love Him by doing the things He asked them to do, by doing it Gods way and not there way John 15: 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

  gods-love[1]Romans: 5: 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. My brother it does not get any clearer than this, God loves you and He wants you to stop Crawfishing around with His word. In order to be saved we must except what Jesus did in our behalf, Jesus told us if we love Him then show it by doing what He asked of us John: 14: 15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments

REMEMBER THIS: True Christians don’t keep Gods Commandments in order to be saved, True Christians keep Gods Commandments because they are saved, and show there love by doing what Jesus ask them to do.  that is the different

So when you know the Truth and don’t do it I am sorry to say but you are Crawfishing and to God that might be Sin.

Revelation: 14: 12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

May God bless and be with you as you move forward in your Christian knowledge of loving the Lord your God with all you are.

Have you ever done something for someone just out of the goodness of your heart and when you finish you don’t get so much as a thank you.

Car broken downI was traveling very early one morning to go visit one of the company’s ships that was having problems. It was about 4am and still very dark, right about when I was getting ready to cross a bridge in Patterson Louisiana out of the corner of my eye I seen three women standing on the road by a car. I looked back but could not see anything because it was so dark and they did not have the car lights on. So I prayed and turned around and went back to see if they needed help. I pulled over and sure enough they had a flat tire and did not know how to change it. Two of the women were talking to me but the 3rd one was standing off a little ways holding the lug wrench tight in her hand.

Well I am a nice guy so I told them no problem I can change it for them, As I looked in the back seat of there car there was a little baby and a little girl sleeping so I did not want to disturb them. I got the spare tire and jack out and begin to jack-up the car but needed the lug wrench to remove the tire lugs. So I had to ask the one lady to let me have the lug wrench but she did not want to let go of it, finely one of the other two ladies had to get it for me, I understood she was afraid because she did not know me, well I too was a little afraid because I did not know them specially the one holding the wrench.

Anyway after I got the tire changed and the old tire back in the trunk of the car they took off. Wow not so much as a thank you. Has anything like that ever happened to you, you go to help someone who is in trouble, you spend your time helping them and when you are finished not so much as a thank you. How would that make you feel, how do you think Gods feels when we do the same to Him everyday.

How many times do you stop to thank God for what He has done in your life?

I had a very hard time fighting cancer about 9 years ago, and when it came back a 3rd time I knew there was no fighting left in me, all I could do what to put it in Gods hand. But as many others I forgot about God until there was nothing more that doctors could do for me. That is a shame and we all do it, we try to fix things our way first forgetting about God until things are so bad there is nothing we can do. But God in His love for mankind always reaches down and take hold of us right when we need Him most.

But how many of us go back and thank Him for what He does everyday in our behalf.

Luke 17: 11-19
11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”
14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.
17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”

When Paul wrote his letter to the Galatians, he told them plainly that if anyone tried to preach a different gospel to them, that person should be “accursed”—even if it was him or an angel. That was strong language, but Paul needed to get their attention. He had taught them salvation by faith in Christ alone, but some others came in and had been teaching the Galatians something quite different, telling them they needed to do certain other things in order to be saved. They were telling them they need to work for there salvation. There is nothing we can do to earn eternal life, eternal life is a free gift from God the Father through His Son Jesus Christ only as we put our faith in Jesus are we saved.

The gospel Paul had preached, he reminded them, was not something he had made up. No human taught or gave him the gospel. He says, “It came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.” After Paul’s conversion, Jesus Himself revealed the gospel to him.

There is only one gospel. At its core stand’s Jesus Christ and His sacrifice which reconciles us back to God the Father through faith. There is nothing we can do to earn this salvation; He gives it to us as a free gift of Gods love to His created being.

God is love and He love us with a love that mankind is not capable of understanding, why because He God loves us with a Godly love, a love that says I will die that you might live. This is the Gospel Paul preach to the Galatians it is found in the book of John: 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave us His Son, His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Wow that is wonderful just knowing that my Creator God loves me so much that even while I was in the dark and sinning He died to give me life and show me a better way to live. But here is the question, are you willing to accept what God did for you and make Him a part of your daily life. Are you ready to live by the truth of Gods holy word found only in the Bible from cover to cover, new and old testaments all one book.

The problem Paul had when he went to the gentiles with the Gospel Truth was other men coming in behind him and preaching something quite different. If anyone tried to preach a different gospel to them, Paul said that person should be “accursed”—even if it was him or an angel don’t believe what they say, go by the Bible only. Why because 2 Corinthians 11:14 is telling us that Satin will stop at nothing to decive you “And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light”.

None of us had ever seen an angel so if satan would come to someone as a angel from heaven and saying that he is God he is Jesus the one who died for all of us, how would we know if he is or is not a angle or Jesus sent from heaven.

Remember in the Garden of Eden Satan came to Eve in the form of a snake and deceived her into eating the fruit that God said not to eat. There was nothing wrong with the fruit the problem was God said not to eat from this one tree as a test of mans loyalty and obedient to what He told them to do, there was nothing in the fruit that made them good or evil

We must go by Gods word and by His word only,
John: 17:17: Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. So Look at what Isaiah the prophet or man of God say

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

lesson02-12Gods Law; His Ten Commandments, His Law that He wrote in stone with His own finger and gave it to His people. At that time His people was the children of Israel, but after they refused and rejected and killed him on the Cross and then stoned and killed His disciples the Gospel massage went to the Gentile. The massage of God loves to the Gentiles by His servant Paul an apogeal of Jesus Christ. We are now Gods people we are now His servants and we don’t want to follow in the foot steps of the children of Israel. What was there problem, mostly in not keeping God commandment, He loved and gave to them all the best heaven could give but they never thanked Him back they never followed what He asked them to do to show that they loved Him back.

Please understand one very important fact and that is found in John 3:16: 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. Then in John 14:15 Jesus tells us how to live to show that we love Him and that we are His follower His people. John: 14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments. How simple just like the test in the Garden of Eden, Gods command was not to eat from one tree, now He God Jesus is saying if you love me show it to the world by doing what I ask you to do, keep my commandments.

By keeping them you are saying Thank You Lord for all you have done for me. Thank you Lord that evening while I was a sinner lost in this world of sin you did not give up on me. Thank you Lord because you came and die in my place and took my sins upon you. Romans: 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We don’t keep Gods Ten Commandments to be saved; we keep them because we are saved and we love Him for all He has done for us and want to show the world who is our Lord & King. Look at Rev: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.

Rev: 19:10: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

 Look at what the angle is telling John, Satan is going to make war with the Saints of God, with Gods holy people. But Gods people will not the majority, they are the few the angle calls them a remnant. A remnant is a part of something that is left when the other parts are gone a small piece of cloth that is left after the rest of the cloth has been sold. When the time of Jesus return draws near there will be only two ways to go, If you are no part of Gods remnant this few you will be on the wrong side.

The dragon who is Satan the devil the father of lies wants you to believe him and not God, but the Bible is very clear on what we need to do to show the world we are not part of this world but of the new world that Jesus is making for His people.

The gift of God is eternal life, eternal life in a new heaven and a new earth with no more pain, sickness, suffering, and no more death.

Revelation 21: 1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

lesson07-16He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. How beautiful are these words spoken by God Himself as a promise to all who by faith follow Him and do the things He asked them to do. Thank you Father for all you done so that I may have life eternal with you in the new Earth that you will create for your people, the ones that do as you asked them to do and keep your Law because they love you.
When was the last time you told God thank you?

As the days of Noah were so shall the end be


Mt:24: 36: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

You can run, but you can't hide!Have you ever wondered about this story that Jesus told His disciples, what is the meaning about the end days being like the days of Noah. With all the Christian Churches in our world today how would this be possible. Could it be that as we get closer to the end time there will be two difference classes of Christians in our world.

Jesus also told a parable about ten virgins, 5 of them were wise and 5 of them were foolish. If a woman in the Bible represents a Church then a virgin Woman would represent a Christian Church. OK so notices what happens to both of them. The bridegroom Jesus tarries or delays His coming. So all 10 of the Churches become lazy as they waited, but then the sound of the coming bridegroom arouses them and they got up and trim their lamps, but 5 of them run out of oil (the Holy Spirit) or they became spiritually blinded by the good things in this world while they were waiting, they became spiritually blinded.

These verses tell us that when the Son of Man appears again, people will be eating and drinking, marrying and giving up in marriage just as they did right up to the day when Noah went into the ark. Everything was normal, in other words, for those who were unaware of God’s intentions they way no alarm. But for Noah and his family, it very was clear that the time was coming when God would bring all of creation to an end, the same will be in the last days.

Looking at the story of Noah contained in Genesis 6, the condition of the world was vexatious to the Lord. He looked down from His throne in heaven to find that corruption had filled the world. The perfect creation of His hands had become everything He did not intend it to be, looking at it again, is there any difference in our World today.
According to Genesis 6:5, God saw that the wickedness of man was great upon the earth. We hate to admit it but does wickedness run rampant today throughout the earth and mostly right here in good old America the land of the free.
Let’s take a trip through the Bible and see what else we can find about this time right before the 2nd coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Let us Pray!


Let’s go back to the scripture for today and read it again: Mt:24: 36: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only

What was it that God the Son was telling to His disciples here in the book of Matthew Chapter 24: God is a God of Love, a God of mercy, He is longsuffering, Caring, and wants only the best for His children. We need to under just what Gods love is all about. The Bible describe the love of God in this way; jealous for His people Ezek:38:19: For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;

We sometimes try to understand God in a human way, but that is a problem. Man is not capable of understanding true divine love that is why Jesus said in John: 15:13: Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.

This is as close as we can get to understanding the love that God has for His children. He is jealous for them because He wants what is best for them, but He can’t force it on them

2Cor:11:2: For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

Now understand the kind of jealousy Paul was talking about, a Godly jealousy, a God that truly cares for His creation to the point that He the creator God would rather die then to let His creation die. That is a love that man can’t comprehend or understand all we can do is too accept it by Faith

Take a look now in the book of Genesis: 6: and start with verse 8

8: But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

Stop for just a moment: I heard some Christians talking and saying that we no longer need to keep Gods 10 commandments law that was Old Testament stuff and we are now New Testament Christians. Well if that is true then Noah must have been a New Testament Christian because the word of God is telling us that he found grace in the eyes of God.

9: These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

The Earth at the time of Noah was just as corrupt as it is today. No wonder Jesus was telling His disciples that as the days of Noah were filled with hate, violence and sexually immorality, so will it be right before the second coming of Jesus. It is a scary thing to hear as it seems like they are talking about what the USA has become.

11: The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12: And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

Look all around you my friend, the morals of this world has changed. There is corruption all around, from the Governments of the world to the Churches that are to be a light to lead men to God. All in all God found only 8 people in all of the know World that Worshiped Him in truth and believed what He God was saying.

imagesCA07BFOU13: And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

How sad God must have been, the beautiful new world He just created corrupted itself through sin Genesse:6:5: And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

The sad part of this is that our World has once again corrupted itself and every imagination of the thoughts of our heart is only evil continually.

God did not destroy the World all at once, God in His love and mercy still pleaded with man to repent of his wicked ways. So God gave mankind 120 more years before He would destroy the Earth. Why to give everyone living time to hear the Gospels message of salvation. Noah preached for a 120 years, but the world looked at him as a foolish old man who built a Boat on dry land miles away from any water.

The World was ending and the only hope was to get into the ark to be saved. Through radio, Internet, and TV the message of the Gospel of Jesus is going to all the World. It is the same message that Noah was preaching, look at it in the book of

Revelation: 14:
7: Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Where do we find this same commandment in the Old Testament, look in the book of Exodus

Exodus: 20:
8: Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9: Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Right there in the Old Testament is the 10 commandments that God Himself wrote with His own finger, and one of them God say to Remember. Why because it points to God as our Creator.

Today people are trying to find the answer to the question, where did we come from how did we get here. It is all there in the book of Genesis how God created and formed the World and God said let there be light and the evening and morning was the first day.

The Bible is very clear on who God is, He is the created God and there are no others like Him. All through the Bible it tells us about God and His love for Mankind, He wanted Man to be happy and live forever; all Man had to do was to obey God and live.

What Mother or Father is there that will not correct there children when they do something wrong or bad. Why do they do that, is it because they hate there children or because they love there children. Can we expect God to be any difference then we are. Our parents had rules when we were growing up, were those rules because they hated us or because they loved us. Our parents loved us so they gave us rules to keep us safe so we would not get into trouble so that we could grow up someday and be parents ourselves. God is no difference, He has rules to keep us safe because He loves us and by keeping them we show others who we love.

Our world became infected with a disease that disease is called Sin and it is killing Gods people. When Man sinned he rejected his creator God but that did not stop God from loving us. God in His love sent His Son to show man the depth of God’s love and that all who would believe in Him would be saved.

In our world today there are two types of people and only two.

There is one group who has a form of religion but it is only on the outside, they are also the ones who want the fun and happiness of this world, live it up with fun dance and song, drink all you want and live as if there is no tomorrow and in fact that might just be it because you can’t have the world and Jesus, it is one or the other.

Then there is another group, they are completely different, they live by the word of God. As the Bible said they love not their lives until the death, they keep the commandments of God and have the testimonies of Jesus Christ. They do not live for the world they live keeping the laws of their God and savior. Why because He asked them to. Jesus said if you love me keep my commandments.

Jesus told His people that he is going to prepare a place for them and that He will be coming back again to take them home that they will live with His in heaven. The same two classes of people that were in the world in the days of Noah are still in the world today.

Jesus told His disciples to watch and pray because no man knew the day or the hour when He Jesus would return.

Read Matthew 24:

36: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only
37: But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38: For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39: And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

All who study Gods word; and being lead by Gods holy spirit can look all around and see there are signs everywhere that the last days are upon us, and that this old world will soon very soon all pass away. People today are just like they were back in Noah days and they will continue until it is too late and the door of probation is once again closed.

I do all I can to live my life everyday by what I read in God’s word. By keeping His laws and His commandments, I don’t keep them to be saved I keep them because I am saved through the blood of my lord and savior Jesus Christ.

28: Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29: But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

The angle messengers were sent from God above to see all the corruption in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. As they got close to the city Lot greeted them and welcomed them into his home, why because he knew there they would be safe.

We might live among ungodly people like Lot did, but that should never be a wall between us and God. We should be faithfully doing our duty everyday for the saving of lost souls.

The angles told Lot to get out and take his family because the city was going to be destroyed. Faithful Lot went to his daughters and son-in-laws but all they did was to laugh at the foolish old man. Finally the angles could wait no longer and had to take Lot and his wife and two daughters by the hand and lead them out of the city

People today is the day of salvation, today is the day that you will let God into your soul or lock Him out forever. We are in what the Bible calls the last days, many of the sings that God has giving have already come too passed.

Don’t be like the people in Sodom or like the son-in-laws of Lot, believe God and take Him at His word. This old world is not ripe for destruction; sin has reached its zenith. God had to destroy this world once by a flood but this time it will be by fire.

I ask of you today choose ye this day who you will serve

1 Kings 18:21
And Elijah came unto all the people and said, “How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people answered him not a word

Baal represents the false Churches and there teachings, don’t get hooked in any Church that said it is OK to forget what God said to Remember. You will know them

John 13:17
Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them

People study the word of God daily, put it into your heart and mind, and when you see God telling you something or making something know to you do as the Bible tells you to do. Don’t get locked out or let the door of probation close on you, make your choice to follow Jesus and do it today

John 17:26
I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.’

There are many Churches out in the world today, they can’t all be right and they can’t all be wrong. You must check them by their Doctrines and there is only one way to do that

Isaiah 8:20: To the Law and too the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

The Bible tells you how to find the true Church, Look at Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Christ and Family

Christ and Family

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

The dragon Satan will not be fighting with the people of the world, he does not care about them. The ones he will be fighting with will be the true Church the ones who do as God has commanded them to do



God Bless

Restoring Gods Truth

Would we Crucify Jesus again!


The Bible is a book all about love and the Earth is a story about creatures made in the very image of their creator who rejected His love.

He Died for YOU

He Died for YOU

But God the Father loved them still so much that He sent His Son to show them the Father and that all who by faith in Him would have ever lasting life. Jesus is our example of what true love is all about, how could we have crucified someone so full of love. How can men be so full of hate to kill the only Son of the creator Father God.

28: Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
29: For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30: Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

I want to share something very important with you; something that I have been preaching in almost all of my sermons, and that is about our Churches and our Religious Leaders today. Are we as Christians truly following the word of God or that of man?

Everyone wants to defend what they believe as being the truth, but the question is what is truth? The Bible must define to us what truth is in order for us to know if we are keeping it or not. So what does the Bible say is truth John:17:17: Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. So according to the Bible truth is Gods word.

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:

So now we know what truth is and we know that all scripture is giving by inspiration of God, so that we might check and see if what we are being told by our Church is or is not truth.

STOP; and think about this; if Jesus came back to our world today would we try and crucify Him again. Come with me on a journey through the Old and New Testament and let’s find out the reason our Religious Leader 2000 years ago rejected His teaching and put Him to death. Then answer the question if Jesus came again today would He find the Church, His Bride as described in the book of Revelation ready for him to take home or to Crucify Him again.

Let’s look first in the Gospel of John: and start in chapter 15
9: As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10: If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
11: These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12: This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

This is a very important subject so I will be using a lot of scripture from both the New & Old Testament, why because to understand the New we need to understand the Old and to understand the Old we need the New. Rv:11:3: And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

Jesus said that His life on this Earth was to show us the Father love Jn:5:20: For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

What was Jesus model here on Earth, to be like His Father in Heaven. Many people even today have a misconception of God the Father; they believe Him to be some tyrant overbearing God who if you don’t serve Him He will burn you up in hell for ever and ever.

But that is not the Father God that Jesus came to show us, Jesus is showing us a Father God who loves and loves us so much that He sent His Son His only Son to show us the Father love. Our first parent sinned and separated us from the love of God by Sin, but it is through the work that Jesus did that give man forgiveness and reconciliation to bring us back to the Father.

John: 14
6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7: If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
8: Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9: Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
10: Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
11: Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

Jesus was soon to leave and He wanted to make sure those that He left behind would not feel helpless or lost. He knew there mind was on becoming great and number one in this life, there were not fully prepared to endue the trial coming before them. He wanted them to understand that when He left another would come to open there minds to everything He taught them and that they would have faith and know that God the Father and Jesus were one in the same.

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.

Hi disciples were to teach others as Jesus taught them, and that was to worship God the Father. Jesus showed the Father love in His life on this earth, He walk and did the things His Father gave Him to do. The Leaders of the Church who were to be the ones showing the common people about God, the very God who gave them His laws and commandments were so far off of true worship they did not recognize the Fathers Son when He came to them.

imagesCA07BFOUThey rejected Him and His teaching. Why because it was different from what they were teaching. How could this be, how could they get so far off from the truth about God, they were the Religious Leaders they were the very ones people looked to for help and guidance.

Stop and ask yourself this question, why are there so many different Christian Churches in our world today. There was only one back in Jesus time the one He started with 12 disciples so why so many now. Funny but we all like to play games and the most command game is follow the leader. Sad but true if someone does not like something in a church he will just leave and start a church of his own. If he is a good speaker and tells the people what they want to hear before long you will have another Christian Denomination.

If Jesus came back today what Church would He go too, I am sure it will be the one following His Commandants all Ten of them. Why I say that because when He was here the first time that is the one He went too..

What is bad about all of this is when the Religious Leaders are following the wrong way everyone else who are following them are also going the wrong way. If Jesus came back today what Church would He be going too, I am sure it will be the one following His Comandents

Jesus came to show His disciples the truth and to follow the commandments of God the Father the same ones He followed while He was here on the Earth. Men love to intrepid the Bible and tell others what is means. But the Bible does not need anyone to intrepid it 2Tm:2:15: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. If we will just take time and study the word of God, His word, the Bible will intrepid itself, that is the gift of the Holy Spirit, to lead us into all truth.

31: But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do.

Today there are many Christians and Religious Leaders telling us that we no longer need to keep all those old Commandments of God, or it is OK to keep them a different way. But was that what Jesus were teaching, or was that the problem with the Religious Leaders then, they were good men “sometimes”. But little by little they compromised the true teaching of God and put into place the teaching of men. Look at what the Bible is telling you in the book of revelation in the end time there will be a small group of true follower who will be keeping the commandments of God not the commandments of the Church.

Look at Matthew: 7: 21: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
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?

As you reading this, can you understand it; Jesus is telling this to men and women who called themselves Christians who profess to be keeping His truth

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

They are the Religious Leaders and there followers; so called Christians that Jesus is talking to, the question is why, why is Jesus saying I never knew you. Could it be for the same reason the Religious Leaders in His time wanted to kill Him.

We need to go back into history and look at some prophecy about the times we live in, turn with me to the Book of Daniel

God gave a King by the name of Nebuchadnezzar a dream, his dreams was about all the major kingdoms that would come up and rule this Earth. Those kingdoms were Babylon, Medes and Persians, Greek, and the very last Roam.

Daniel: 2:
36: This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
37: Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
38: And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.
39: And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
40: And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
41: And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
42: And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
43: And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
44: And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

OK now let’s look at these kingdoms

Gold = Babylon: The head of gold represented Babylon, which was the ruling world power from 612-539 B.C.

Silver = Medo-Persia: The chest of silver represented Medo-Persia, the ruling world empire from 539-331 B.C.

Bronze = Greece: The thighs of bronze represented Greece, the dominant world ruler from 331-168 B.C.

Iron = Rome: The legs of iron represented Rome, which enjoyed world supremacy from 168 B.C.-A.D. 476. Jesus was born when Rome was in power

Iron and Clay = the Divided Empire: The feet that were partly iron and partly clay represented a divided empire that would not cleave together. No single power has ruled the world since A.D. 476, and it will remain divided until Christ’s return. But note that the legs of Iron representing Roam extend all the way into the very toes of the image, right down to the time we are living in.

Stone = Christ’s Eternal Kingdom, His Word, and His Law

We are living in the very toes of this image where soon Jesus is to return. Question is where will you be, on what side will you be standing. On the side of your Church or on the side of God Truth; the choice my friend is your

Now let’s go to the Old Testament and see some of prophecy about the Church that we find will come out of the Iron and Clay of the legs and feet

Dan:7:25: 23: Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

What makes this fourth beat or kingdom so different from all the rest, after the fall of the Roman kingdom When the Roman Empire began to crumble in A.D. 476, it was not overtaken by another world power. Instead, barbarian tribes conquered the Roman Empire and divided it just as Daniel prophesied. Ten of these tribes evolved into modern Europe. They were the Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Franks, Vandals, Alemannians, Sueves, Anglo-Saxons, Heruls, Lombards, and Burgundians. Seven of them still exist today in Europe. For example, the Anglo-Saxons became the English, the Franks became the French, the Alemannians became the Germans, and the Lombards became the Italians.

24: And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

Note; Roam never fell to another world power it was divided and change from a world empire to a religious empire. It is the same today in our time we are the feet of this great image that Daniel seen, and for many years the only church that ruled the world was the church of Roam, the legs of that great image.

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

Is there on Earth today a Religious power that claims it has power to make and change Gods Law and His Commandments? It is sad to say but it is true that the Church of Roam claims to have that power on Earth to do just that. And they changed who’s time and who’s Law. Look at the 4th commandments, Gods day of worship and His time to come and abide with His people the Sabbath to Sunday.

How log would this corrupt Religious power rule, look at the book of Revelations

Reveluation: 11:

2: But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3: And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

During these times of persecution where would the true Church be Rv:12:6: And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Gods true Church would go into hiding because of the persecution of the corrupt Roam church. Read Foxe’s Book of Martyrs if you have any drought of how corrupt a church can become when lead under the power of an evil devil and not a loving God.

God has always had a people who kept the truth of His word even to death. Why because they follow the true teaching of Jesus and refused to follow the corrupt teaching of the church.

Mk:13:13: And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Mt:24:9: Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

Because they stood up against the corrupt teaching of the Church and paid the price with there very own life. They knew that they would be killed for telling others the truth about God the Father and His Son Jesus. But they would not compromise the truth even if it meant dyeing; they love Gods more then life itself.

24: If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25: But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

Jesus told us that if they would do these things to Him Gods Son, they would do it to us as well who followed His true teaching.

We are told that they will hate us, why because we are different because we keep the Commandments of God and have the Testimony of Jesus Christ

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

Rv:19:10: And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

We are to worship God and God only; we are not to bow down and give any man or image the reverence that belongs to God alone.

Look at how the Bible describes the last kingdom, Jesus kingdom

The stone that was cut without human hands represents God’s kingdom. It will not be a conglomeration of earthly kingdoms, but a total replacement Revelation 21:1. The Scriptures declare that when Jesus Christ returns to earth, He will completely consume all the kingdoms of earth and establish an everlasting kingdom Daniel 2:44. What exciting news! Jesus Christ is coming again! All history is moving toward this climactic conclusion of when the Son of God shall return in majesty to bring in the kingdom of everlasting righteousness.

The Angle came to Daniel to show him what will happened in the latter days (End Time)

Dan 10: 14: Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.

Dan:7: 45: Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Look at what Paul said to the Church of Thessalonians: 4:

13: But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14: For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

Here Paul is preaching about the follower of Jesus who had died and sleeping in there graves. They wanted to know what is going too happened to them. They knew that when someone died they did not go to heaven or hell, that they were right there in the grave. So Paul told them not to worry that when Jesus came back all who are in the grave would rise first and then we who are still alive will go up to meet Jesus in the air

15: For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Jesus when He is coming back will call with a shout and the trump of God and all who died in the hope and faith of Jesus will come alive never to die again. How could this be; because they died in Faith what Jesus told His followers to do, that if He goes He would come back and take them with Him. Remember the story of Lazarus in the book of John (John:11:43) Jesus had to call for him by name so that all dead who was in the grave would not come back to life.

lesson07-1617: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18: Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Jesus is the Stone that was cut out of the rock with out hands and is coming back for all who by faith in Him believed and did the work He told them to do not what the Church tell you to do.

People need to study the word of God the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and let the Bible intrepid itself and go by Gods word not mans.

So what do you think, now some 2000 years after Jesus died if He was to come back as a man like He did to the Jews would they crucify Him again? There are so many different religions in our world today, how do you tell which is the true Church, Remember in the book of revelations it said that they will be a remnant a very small group compared to the Great mega Churches of the world.

Rv: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.

Who is satan mad with and will do all he can to destroy and kill them, that is right the ones who will be keeping the commandments of God. Remember keeping the commandments will not save you, we are not saved by keeping the commandments or the Law, we are saved by the grace of God. But we keep the commandments because Jesus told us by keeping them it will show to the world who we love; His true Church.

Jesus Himself kept His Father Commandments; the ones He gave Moses, for His commandments are the very character of God Himself

If you are in drought as to what the Truth is just do this: WWJD What Would Jesus Do

Jesus kept His Fathers Commandments all Ten of them

This is Elder Tim McNab for Restoring Gods Truth Ministries, Don’t be one of them that Jesus will say sorry but I never knew you.

Don’t Bite the Hand that Feeds you!


I have a dog that can’t understand love; it is a good little dog and likes to lick me when we are playing. She also likes for me to rub her back, her head, and more then any rub behind her ears. My daughter had the dog for about a year but could not take care of her because she was always working, so like a good daughter she dropped the dog off on her parents, don’t you just love children.

The dog is a pretty little dog all most still a puppy and wants to play all the time; Well I am an old man and my play days are over. But we manage so like I said she is a good little dog, but she has one very bad problem, when it comes time to feed her.

Don't Bite the HandIf I stick my hand too close to her mouth while eating she will growl and even bits me. All I can say is where is the love you had for me just a little while ago. I am the one who give you a place to sleep, and place to live, I keep you warm in the winter time, and cool in the summer time, I take you to the vet when you get sick, and feed you when you get hungry

No matter what I do or what I try I can never get her to learn that I am the Hand that feeds you. I sometimes wonder if that is not the same thing we do to God everyday, He is the one that give us everything we have and everything we need, and all we do it too bite the hand of the one who gives us our very life. Forgive us dear Lord.Hosea:4: 6: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:

Let’s take a walk through the Bible and see what God has to say about this.

Let us Pray!

My Brother Son:

My brother die about 10 years ago and I want to do anything I can to help his children. One of his sons was in jail at the time of his death; we wanted him to be there at the funeral but they would not let him out of jail.

I wanted to help him as much as I could so I took on the task to visit him and try to keep in communicating with him. Well he got out about a year later and went back to New Orleans, but it was not long before he got back into trouble and they put him back in Prison again this time for 7 years.

Jn:10:10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

I went to visit him when I could, just had a lot on my table at the time, but I felt I owed it to my brother to help his son. When it came time for him to be released none of his family wanted him because all he was is trouble.

Well I sad that is not right, he is my brother son, he got into trouble when he was younger but he is now a changed man. When I would visit him in prison he would tell me all his planes and that was to keep out of trouble and make a new life for himself. Well I decided to have him stay with me so we would be able to help him a lot better. I heard all the bad things about him but pushed all that in the back of my head, I was going to help and that was all it was to it. I gave him his own room and I paid for gas in his car, it was like when my children was at home, Dad did and paid for everything.

Ps:81:12: So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels.

Well my wife was in Tampa at the time so the first day that he was in my house he was there all day by himself. I always keep my room door locked because I don’t want anyone to be in there when I am not home. So after I got home from work, I notice that the number on my safe was wrong. I always leave it on 90 but when I check it, it was on 50, how did that get there, and then I thought. Someone had to have opened my safe but who my door was locked. Then I said oh no that boy opened my door and was rooting around in my room to see what I have.

I did not say anything that night but decided to leave my safe on a different number the next day, and sure enough when I got home it was changed. Well my wife was coming back from Tamps that same night and she will be at home everyday now, so I said nothing to him again. I wanted him to know that I trust him I love him I will do everything I can do to help him.

Smokes and BearMt:15:19: For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

He told me he found a job and everyday he would leave to go to work, but he was always getting off early. I figured something not right with that; no one gets to take off when they want when they just start a new job. Well I did all I could do to treat him like a son and let him know we trust and loved him. That week we had a camp meeting and so my wife and I went, I asked him to come with us but he say no someone was coming to pick him up to go to work, well ok I said.

We drove to the camp meeting about the time we got there a guy I know called me on my cell phone to let me know someone was driving my work truck. I said what, he said that boy who is staying with you took off in your work truck and he is calling me because he knows that no one drives that truck except me.

I could not believe it; he broke in my room to get the keys and then stole my truck. I drove home right away and when I got there sure enough my work truck was gone. About that time he shows up with my truck telling me that he had an emergency and needed to use my truck.

But this time I said no, no more and told him to pack his bag and get out of my house. He had a friend pick him who was a known drug head, what he was doing was stealing from me to pay for drugs. After he left I found a lot of my tools were missing my wife rings were missing; even my next door neighbor was missing tools from his shop.

Why! was all I could say, I did all I could for him, I took him in when no one else wanted him, I feed him and gave him a warm place to live. I loved him as my own son and would have done anything for him, but to him I was only someone else to abuse. That is why none of his family wanted him, they knew him better then I did. But I was praying that love would change him but he turned and walked away from my love because he wanted what was in the world.

Ps:14:1: The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Sometime I wonder are we not the same way with God? God has giving us everything we have everything we need and we spit it back at Him saying thanks but no thanks.

Open your Bible with me to the book of Hosea and let’s read about God people Israel and see how God has viewed them.

Hosea:2:5: For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.

God picked a man by the name of Abraham and from him he would make a nation of people who would love Him God for all He would do for them, they were to be called Gods holy people. Did it turn out that way; no, all that God did for them they were anything expect God people.

Hosea: 2:
8: For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.
9: Therefore will I return, and take away my corn in the time thereof, and my wine in the season thereof, and will recover my wool and my flax given to cover her nakedness.
10: And now will I discover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, and none shall deliver her out of mine hand.

Gods love and mercy is right there for all who by faith accept what He did in our behalf, forgiveness is free by the blood of Jesus but it was not cheep.

6: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

God wants a people who will love Him; He has provided everything we need and gives His blessing to us everyday. But look at what God is saying about His people

mad-satan-Picture-11: Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart.
12: My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their

We are Gods people, yet God is saying that we have turned away from following Him we have committed whoedom by following false teaching. The Bible and the Bible alone must be the standard of all truth in our life, nothing should be more importance to us but to follow what God has told us to do.

Isa: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.

God has blessed mankind by giving us His commandments that if a man will do them he will be blessed. Look at the Gospel of John and what is it saying.

16: Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
17: If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
18: He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
19: Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law?

Jesus plainly told the Religious Leaders in His day that He came not to do His will but the will of His Father. He also told them that God gave them His Law and His Commandments that If any man will do God’s will, he shall know of the doctrine that Jesus was teaching, whether it be of God, or of man.

Think about this, Jesus was speaking to the Religious Leaders the men who were put in charged of doing what God told them to do. They had a copy of everything God gave to Moses to pass down to them, but were they doing it.

This was the Religious Leaders who were supposed to be teaching the people Gods word, but they themselves were not keeping it. They had made other laws to help them keep God laws, but by the time Jesus came they were keeping there Laws and not the Laws or Commandments God gave to them.

Now I ask you is it possible that we today are doing the same thing.

Jesus came almost 2000 years ago; he left behind 12 disciples who were to teach us what Jesus gave them. They with the power of Gods Holy Spirit lead many people to know the only true God who has created everything. They did not teach others to break any of God Laws or Commandments but His disciples were examples to the world of how to live by them.

Look at what the Bible is saying about the time we are living in, go to the book of 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 was not talking about his time but of future events that were to come. Look at what happened to the Church during the dark ages. The Church compromised the truth of God word for pagan belief’s durian the rule of Constantine. But true believes kept the words of God and separated them selves from the corrupt church of Roam.

Rome taught that all who did not acknowledge the pope as God’s representative on earth and the Roman Catholic Church as the only true church were damned. Salvation was confined within the teachings of the Roman Church. Every person who disagreed with the Roman Church was in line for a heresy trial and perhaps excommunication. Excommunication meant the loss of one’s soul and being condemned to death.

Look at what Daniel is saying about the future of this corrupt Religion


1. He shall speak great words against the most High: Making her own laws and saying she and she alone can forgive sin
2. He shall wear out the saints of the most High: Look at Fox’s book of Martyrs, all these Men & Women died because they would not except the teaching of this corrupt church. What gives any church the right to put someone to death for refusing to believe what they teach?
3. He will think to change times and laws:

Believe it or not but the Roman Church changed the 4th Commandment from the Seventh Sabbath day to the firth day of worship. God’s holy day a day we were to all come together and worship God and Him only; to a day to worship the Sun. Sun worship is Pagan and all who worship on that day are worshiping the Pagan Sun god.

The Bible tells us; and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

God is a God of love a God of mercy and long suffering, but there will come a day when sin and sinners must have an end. We can’t continue to bite the hand that feeds us and expect to live forever.

I want you to read what Jesus was telling the people in the Book of Matthew

Matthew: 21:
33: Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
34: And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
35: And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
36: Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
37: But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
38: But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
39: And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
40: When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
41: They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
42: Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
43: Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
This was not the people Jesus was talking to in this parable; Jesus was talking to the High Priest and the Religious Leaders of His day. By rejecting Jesus they were rejecting the very God who gave them His Commandments. Jesus told them that His father will take away His blessing and give it to another people, who by faith will believe in Him and what He came to do to save them.

But even then Jesus knew that His new Church would become corrupt with false teaching because of evil men. Look at Matthew:7:15: Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Satan would stop at nothing to keep people from hearing the truth. Remember back in Genesis the lie he told to Eve, God said in the day you eat of this fruit you will surely die, Satan said you will not surely die. One little word changed the meaning of what was and was not truth.

John:16:2: They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

Look at the Church of the Dark Ages and what she did to Christians who would not worship her as the true Church. Read Foxe’s Book of Martyrs and see how many Thousands maybe Millions of good Christian Men and Women even Children she put to death all in the name of God. The Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind, she killed more people then all the World Wars put together could number.

Evil men pretending to serve God just like the Religious Leaders that put Jesus to death, all because He the Son of God would not except the traditions of the Church in place of God’s Commandments.
Even Paul knew that after his death evil men would come into the Church, look what he told the Christians there in Thessalonica

Thessalonians: 2:
7: For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

The mystery of iniquity (Evil Men) are already creeping into the Church The condition of the world under the Romish power presented a fearful and striking fulfillment of the words of the prophet Hosea:4:6: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee: . . . seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” “There is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.” Hosea 4:6, 1, 2. Such were the results of banishing the word of God.

We are not left in darkness because Jesus told us what will happen, what to expect. The dragon or Satan will persecute or go after God people just like in the Dark Ages once more Read the Book of Revelation and Daniel together.

Rv: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.

A remnant is a very small amount, at the time of the end there will be only a few doing what God told us to do. The Religious Leaders of the end-time will be telling everyone not to worry everything is OK
So here we are 2000 years after the death of our Lord Jesus, as we come upon the end-times of this world and the soon return of Jesus, we again find the Churches Corrupt teaching the documents of men rather then God truth.

Look at the fearful warning giving by Jesus Himself to the Church of the end-times

Matthew:7: 21: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
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?
23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Many of the so called great Religious Leaders of our day will not make it into heaven, why because they studied the word of God, they knew what they should do and say, but they did it not. Why many of these Religious Leaders sell religion for money and wealth, in there sermons they tell the people all is well just love each other and all will be well.
Turn with me now to the book of Revelation: 14: 12: Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

The Angle was telling John there will be a people in the end times who will be doing what God said to do and not man.

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.

lesson24-17Please remember we don’t keep Gods commandments to be saved, we keep them because we are saved. We are saved by the death Jesus gave; He paid the price of sin to save all who by faith loved Him

John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.

I hope that someday I will be able to teach my little dog it is ok, I am not going to take your food away from you. I am the one who loves you and will provide for you all the days of your life.

Don’t bite the hand that feeds you

Restoring Gods Truth Ministry



          I like when people give me Things, especially things like Gift Certificates, because it mean I can get something for free, I can go and eat and it don’t cost me nothing or I can go to the Home Depot and get things I need and it too don’t cost me anything.


I believe we are Saved this way,    “Because someone else has already Paid the price”


Back about 2300 years ago the folk who lived in Alexandria in Northern Africa could not grow enough food. They were totally dependant on Eastern Mediterranean lands (Phoenicia) for their grain, their wheat.

They called it “corn” in those days. They would die without outside supplies. Their life totally depended on the arrival of the food from somewhere else.

About a certain time of the year when their supplies began to run out they would be waiting  hoping that the ships would appear over the horizon soon, bringing the great supplies of wheat that had been grown.

People would keep a look-out. They didn’t have very good communications and so they would just watch for the ships.

When they saw those great grain ships appearing over the horizon they were just thrilled. There food was coming! What a great day that was! As the heavily laden ships came closer the good news spread quickly that food was coming.

The Greek-speaking folk living in Alexadria coined a special word just for that event; to announce the good news that the grain ships had arrived in port.

You can read this word in your New Testament. It’s in the book of Mark, chapter sixteen, you can find this word, this special word announcing the good news that the grain had arrived, that it was coming, it was on the way.

Here it is in Mark 16:15(NIV)- “And He said unto them ‘Go into all the world and preach the GOOD NEWS to all creation.’

” What is the “good news”?

The good new is that Jesus Christ has come, that He is our Savior. Of course the word we’re defining here is “the gospel“, evangelion in the Greek. Basically that means good, merry, glad, and joyful, tidings that makes a man’s heart glad.

The gospel is the good news that Jesus has come. He has brought life for a dying race. Without Jesus coming we were all doomed.


Romans 1:17(NIV) For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, …. the righteous will live by faith,” he concludes in that verse.

The three angel’s messages of Revelation 14 is vital to us as a people.

The very heart of those messages is the everlasting gospel which will be proclaimed to every nation and kindred and tongue and people Rev. 14:6. When that happens then Jesus will come…as told in Matthew 24:14.

Now, there’s a lot of gobbledy-gook about how we are saved and what the gospel really is. Before we can preach the gospel we must know in our hearts what the gospel is.

If I asked ten people what the gospel is, I would probably get ten definitions. What is the gospel?

Here are two views about how we are saved:

        1. We are saved totally by believing in Jesus. Works do not have anything to do with our salvation. Therefore, we can live however we want to live because works has nothing to do with salvation. Some people call this the “New Theology”, although it is thousands of years old.  

        2. Some people believe that we are saved by faith plus personal works. And Jesus saves us, that’s true, but we must manifest good works and we must grow more and more like Jesus toward perfection of our soul. And some people call that “legalism”.

Now I believe there’s a third way. And I believe that is brought by the gospel.

       3.  Jesus saves us. We’re saved totally by believing in Him. He totally provided righteousness for us, AND He provides the power to live the Christian life. We are not saved by our works: we’re saved by His works, and He empowers us to live the Christian life.

The first of these three views I would call cheap grace.

The second I would call legalism!

The third view, I believe, which is a balanced view where we ought to be today, and this view is what we want to focus on today.


Now I want to define the “Gospel” for you. What is the GOOD NEWS? What is the GOSPEL? The Gospel is what tells us that we are saved by a GIFT CERTIFICATE!

You are not saved by going down and securing salvation for yourself.

It is not a “do-it-yourself” thing.

Salvation is provided by somebody else that has gone down to the store and totally paid for your salvation long ago; and made it so that I can go down there to the store and trade your gift certificate for Eternal life.

We all want something for nothing. We shop for juicy bargains. We mail in the coupon for free drawings.

I had a Friend who one day showed me over 150 scratchy off Lotto tickets she got. She told me that she won all of these it just cost he $75.00. So I as her how much did you win, she just looked at me like “what do you mean” I got to play all of these over a 150 tickets. So I said OK I understand that you got to play all of them, but how much did you Win from playing all of them. She again just said I won all of these, so I told her you mean you lost your $75.00 bucks, She then told me that I did not understand anything about playing scratch-off. I told her all I understood is that She lost her Money.

People spend a fortune trying to win the lottery.

Shame on them!

Only twice does the word WIN appear in the Bible. PHILIPPIANS 3:8(KJV) Paul speaks of gaining – or winning Christ. “I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord. I have suffered the loss of all things…that I may WIN Christ.”

How do we get Christ?

 By winning Him, not by purchasing Him.  

If you want to win something win eternal life because you will Win every time.

It is a gift. Salvation is gained by accepting a Gift you have already won, not by our efforts; But because we have chosen Him.  “Jesus” as our Savior

If you choose Jesus you are an instant winner. If you choose the world you are a big looser.           

Salvation is free! But salvation is not a cheap commodity!

Jesus achieved my eternal life through sweat, tears and blood. What a high price! Today, Jesus simply gives it away to His friends who then possess perfect righteousness through their faith in Jesus Christ.

Now, on the cross Jesus said a very important statement: three little words. He said, “It is Finished!” (John 19:30)

What was finished?

The word Jesus used is a Greek word … Tetelestai, which in our version of the Scripture is translated, “It is finished.”

Archaeologists have repeatedly found its Latin equivalent, consummatum, scrawled across ancient tax receipts, indicating it also meant “paid in full“.

What Jesus was saying on the cross was, “This debt is now paid in full. I completely paid the price.Sin’s account was settled on the cross. Our debt and guilt were wiped out! You can’t add to it.     All that I can do is accept it.


So I obtain salvation by gift certificate that has been paid in full by Jesus.

I can’t purchase eternal life, by a whole life full of doing good works.

But I live a life of good works in response to His gift. Jesus gives me eternal life. But, the good news is that it does not stop with the gift certificate. When I take my salvation home Jesus comes home with me to help me apply my gift and to use my gift in my life. And that is very much UN-like cheap grace.

Years ago I purchased a gizmo for my children. It came in a box and said “some assembly required“! It was some assembly alright! After an hour or so and a long struggle with plastic parts and instructions written by some Japanese person who had probably had a one hour correspondence class in the English language, the thing finally worked!

The truth is that Jesus not only provides our salvation, but Jesus comes with the gift and helps us assemble the gift and use gift as the Christian life. Jesus creates within our new heart a dislike for sin and a deep love for good things.

The truth is that we are saved totally by Jesus’ blood, not by our own blood. And that same blood also has the power to enable us to live a changed life. That doesn’t mean that we won’t make any mistakes. We may make mistakes but that same blood also has the ability to blot out our sins and give us complete forgiveness.

Blood is mentioned over 300 times in the Bible. It lies at the very heart of the Gospel, for it is through “the blood of his cross” that Jesus reconciled us to God. (See Colossians 1:20-23).


Some years ago a terrible railroad accident occurred, killing many people. A commuter train had stalled on the tracks just a few minutes before a fast freight was due to arrive.

A conductor quickly sent to flag down the approaching “flier.” Being assured that all was well, the passengers relaxed.

Suddenly, however, the speeding freight came bearing down upon them. The crash left a ghastly scene of horror.

The engineer of the speeding freight train, escaped death by jumping from the cab. He was called into court to explain why he hadn’t stopped.

“I saw a man waving a flag,” he said, “but it was yellow, so I thought he just wanted me to slow down.”

When the flag was examined, the mystery was explained.

It had been red, but because of long exposure to the sun and weather it had become a dirty yellow.

Just think of the lives eternally wrecked by the ‘Dirty yellow gospels’ that we hear today in many Churches — the bloodless theories of the gospel that send their hearers to their doom instead of stopping them on their downward slide!

Cheap grace will lead to certain doom. Legalism or perfectionism will not save. I’ve never met anybody that is totally perfect. I don’t think any of us could ever equal what Jesus did for us.


Jesus Christ can give you His righteousness and you can stand truly perfect right now by his Free Gift of Salvation to everyone who believes.

Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross can redeem your soul (see Romans 5:8,9). Don’t be deceived by a weak “dirty yellow gospel” of human works that is powerless to save you from everlasting destruction.

The wonderful truth is that we are truly totally saved by Jesus.


Jesus the Son of God is our Saviour. Jesus Himself will set us free. Jesus said in John 8:32 (KJV) “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” This is an interesting statement and many Christians do not apply this text correctly.

What is it that we have to know?      The doctrines?    or     What is the truth?


Jesus explains this in the next verses: John 8:36 “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” Notice what sets us free… The Truth in verse 32: And the Son of God in verse 36.      Jesus is the same today as when he said that 2000 years ago


In John 14:6, “Jesus answered, ‘I am the Way, the Truth, life...'” It is knowing Jesus that totally sets us free. Jesus paid for Salvation with His perfect life. It is not the belief in certain doctrines that will save us. We do not have to earn heaven. Eternal life is a gift, free, it had already been paid for with your Gift Certificate Jesus gives you.

I am not saved because I keep the Sabbath or because I keep all the others Commandments, Why because the Law can’t save me, the Law can only convict me. We are saved by Jesus.

Matthew 19:                                                                                                                                       16: And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?  What did Jesus tell him,  you know the Commandments

20: The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

If just keeping the Law could save you them this young man should be saved; correct

Look at what Jesus said to him

21: Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

22: But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

He was a Good Man, but being good what not his problem, He keep God Commandments, but just keeping the Commandments, was not his problem was it.

The real problem was, he was trying to save his self; by his works and not by his Faith. He did not have the Faith that if he gave away all that he had, God would give him ten times more back


But let’s understand Doctrines…..

Doctrines are important, and that’s where people call us a sect, they have almost stopped calling us a cult.

But they still call us a sect: they can’t understand how we can believe that we are totally saved by Jesus and yet it is also important to keep the Sabbath.


Because I am saved by the Blood of Jesus I do what he told me to do. If you Love me keep my Commandments John:14:15:

We keep God’s Commandments because we love him not because we are saved by them.


Never forget one thing,     There is a different’s in keep God’s Law to be Saved; and keep God’s Law because you are Saved.

I will tell you this, I am married to a wonderful woman and I don’t help her do the dishes because of some law, I do that because I want to, I want to do something to make her happy.

 I keep the Sabbath because I want to do what makes God happy. It’s a response to Him. So we’re saved by gift certificate. Eternal life is given by a gift.

How do you get the gift? You have to know the Giver.

Let me ask you a question– Have you ever received a major gift in your whole life from a complete stranger?

That has never happened to me.

We almost always receive gifts from people that we know. Our friend Jesus, because we know Him he wants to give us His Eternal life.


The Gospel is all about our wonderful loving Friend, Jesus, standing with outstretched arms wanting to share His eternal life with you.

I believe the only way anyone will ever be lost is if that person willfully and consistently rejects Jesus and reject His free gift of Eternal Life.

Otherwise, we’re going to be saved.

Legalism is like a body without a soul. It is a corpse.

Cheap Grace is like a soul without a body. It is a ghost.

Neither one of them work.

Only Jesus could live the perfect life in both body and soul. He became a Saviour.

Jesus, lived the perfect life and paid a big price for complete salvation for each of us. Then Jesus gives this expensive rescue to us as a free gift if we love Him.

Where do you pick up your gift certificates?

John 3:36- “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life!…”

You get it from Jesus.


You know there is only one thing about a Gift Certificates; It is no good unless you use it.


My friend we are told that we are saved by grace through out faith in God. Put your faith in Jesus and what He has done for you, it is free for the asking just trust Him and see.


God Bless you all is my pray in Jesus name.

Several years ago two ships collided. It happened far out in the calm quiet Atlantic Ocean on a dark foggy night. The smaller ship with two hundred and six people on board sank within thirty minutes. Immediately the larger ship put out life boats to retrieve the passengers who were floating in the calm sea.

Only thirty four were found!? They were all picked up and saved. At first it seemed a great mystery why a hundred seventy two people were lost and so few were saved. The problem was not a lack of life jackets or life boats.

**  I don’t know if any of you have ever been in a collision, things happen so fast that you don’t always get time to think about them or think about what to do. You just do them.

I was once on a ship that had a collision with another ship many years ago. We too did not have time to think, We knew that our ship was going down and we needed to get off and off fast. So when the Captain gave the order to abandon ship that is what we did, with in fifteen minutes the ship sunk, but all of our lives were saved, only because everyone followed the order giving.

But there was a different problem here on this ship, the people heard the Captain order, but many did not want to go when the call to abandon ship was giving. Why?

What in this world would keep you on a sinking Ship? The order is giving get off, Abandon ship and save your life. What’s keeping you from getting in the lifeboat?

Later it was found that the primary reason so few were saved was that most if not all of them had busied themselves during those last thirty minutes in seizing their gold and silver and securing it to their clothes or belting it around their waist.

They were weighted down and unable to remain afloat until the rescue boats could reach them. They lost both their life and their money. They were Jeopardized by greed.


What hinders you from giving Christ your all?


Cast off the carnal things that weigh you down. Many of good Christians are like a waterlogged raft, they are just barely afloat. They have soaked up so much worldliness and are so absorbed with little sinful traits that it is almost impossible for them to be towed into the heavenly harbor.

Luke 16:13 “No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.”

Sorry: but you can’t have your pie and eat it too. No heart can mature two crops at the same time. We must decide which is more important.

Immerse yourself in Jesus. Lighten your load of temporal doodads. Give Jesus your total heart and sole and stop living your life in a world that is dying because the temporal reward looks great.


Just remember the word temporal means just that.   “temporary, brief, short lived”.

When an immigrant comes to America, before He or She can become a citizen they must renounce all commitments and allegiance to their former homeland and pledge one hundred percent allegiance to America. Then and only then will the U.S. Government grant citizenship

That’s the way it is with Jesus. When you accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, you renounce Satan completely. You can’t “split time” by serving Satan part-time and Christ part-time.


For a Christian there can be no moonlighting with the world.


It is impossible to have one foot in the world and one foot in the church. Very quickly you would have to do the splits because the path of the church and the world are zeroing in at two very different destinations. One is eternal Life the other is eternal destruction.

Like a boat leaving the dock, you can’t have one foot on the boat and one foot on the dock for very long or you will end up in the drink.

An individual who divides his heart between God and the world will eventually be wholehearted for the world and fainthearted for God! You can’t dine at the Devils table on Friday and at the Lord’s table on Sabbath. You can’t sing “All The Way” in the pew and swear at the fax machine at work.


Luke 14:33 In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.

We must be willing to give up everything. You can’t hold onto the world and its knickknacks with all your strength and equally hold onto Jesus.

You can’t get your high from Jesus on Sabbath and get your “High” from drugs on Saturday night.

Brown-nosing with Satan when you are with the crowd and pretending at church makes you a hypocrite!

1 Thessalonians 5:23 May God Himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus wants us one hundred percent, Completely, Totally, All or nothing, Lock, stock, and barrel Christians! Loaded up and ready to fire.

I remember as a boy in Honduras we drove across the country to visit some friends, I reckon we hadn’t gone a stone’s throw before we came to a vacant lot. The problem was that it had not been empty long, just a few days before a family had lived there in a home. My Uncle said, “Boy, they moved out Lock, Stock and Barrel!” The clothes-line was gone, the mail box, and even the dog house was gone they were out of there completely. I said man it looks like they took everything.


Then I came here to the US and found out that when people here move our they take the Very light bulbs out before leaving.

So what does it means to be a Lock, Stock, and Barrel Christian. It means being ready that if Jesus would call saying “Who could we send”. Being able to jump up and say here am I Lord send Me.


I can do all things through Christ who strength me.

Isaiah 29:13 God says, “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me

We sing songs like “I’ll go where you want me to go Dear Lord… I’ll do what you want me to do…

But don’t ask me to sing in the choir or play the hand bells, or teach in the little kid’s department or help with VacationBibleSchool or sit on a committee. I just want to sit among the saints. I don’t want to be involved to much, I just don’t have the time!”

God’s yardstick is total devotion or none at all. We modern Christians come to the celestial check out lane and when we reach the cash register we say,


“I would like to buy about three dollars worth of God please.


  • I don’t want enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep.
  • I don’t want enough to make me love people I don’t like.
  • I want gladness but not transformation.
  • I want the warmth of the womb, but not the new birth.
  • I want a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack.
  • I want a sprinkling but not an immersion.
  • I want a taste of God but not a total meal.
  • I want to sample Jesus but not be over involved.
  • I want to do God’s will as long as it doesn’t interfere with what I am doing.


David eventually became a man after God’s heart by going all the way with total commitment.

Psalms 119:2 David says: Blessed are they who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart.

Those who seek him with all their heart!


I’ve had a lot of people come and say, I just can’t get victory over sin. I’m trying to be a good Christian and I just can’t do it. How do I get strength to live the Christian life?”

 ( Stop Trying)

I’ll tell you how to get Christian strength. You seek it with all your heart. You’re going to get what you’re really seeking.” If you go at it with all your heart you will find it.

God is there waiting, reaching out to take your hand.

Pray and when you finish praying pray somemore. Jesus is not tired of hearing your pray, or your request, he is willing to do what every it take to help you, he proved it by dying for you on the Cross.

Do you know what God’s minimum requirement is?

He is the celestial Teacher, we’re the students in the classroom. As our Divine Teacher, in the great schoolhouse of life, passing is not 70%. Passing is not even 90%. Passing is 100%.  And he will give you the strength, the courage, and the will when you ask for it and believe it by Faith.

Revelations: 3

14: And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

15: I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16: So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.


God wants your heart, the whole heart, and nothing but the whole heart. He wants all of you or he doesn’t want you at all. Lock, stock, and barrel commitment is what God is looking for in His people in these last days.

Unless you love Him totally, you do not love Him at all. There is no such thing as lukewarm commitment. If you don’t crown Him Lord of All, you really do not crown Him at All.

Notice that our heavenly Father does not expect what He is not willing to give. Does God give totally? Does He? Yes, He does.       

Does He give half-way? Do we have a part time daddy? Our awesome God gives totally! The bible is full of examples of how God give totally.


Let’s look and see!


Luke 8:48 (KJV). And He said unto her, “Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.”


 Does God heal us half-way? No. He heals us all the way. Her faith had made her whole. She was not healed half- way she was healed completely by her faith in the one who could give healing.

When Jesus died on the cross, He totally paid for all my sins. His forgiveness is absolute. God’s healing power is unbounded. When we all get to heaven, we will be given access to the immeasurable universe.

He’s not going to say,

“Well, I’ll just give you a little bit of heaven.

I’ll give you just a touch of it.” No!

Does He give us just a sample of heaven? No!

He gives us the whole thing. It’s ours completely, Lock, Stock and Barrel, all of it!


We will be able to fly. We don’t need to have reservations. We just go to all these other worlds. Every corner of the universe is yours to explore. He doesn’t hold back. Total freedom to go and come, to observe it all.

We can obtain a knowledge that exhaustively takes in the alpha to the omega of the universe. We can fly at more than the speed of light and picnic in a far off corner of the universe. We have unlimited access.

But to completely experience the joys of heaven then, you need to be totally committed to Jesus Christ today. Without that total commitment you won’t be there.


Now you could say, “Well, I attend church on Sabbath morning. I’m here. I’m sitting in the pew. But when I go home, I don’t dress like I dressed here. In fact I put on some of the world, you know. I start acting like the world. Swear words occasionally come out. That’s not total commitment is it. When you are total committed you are committed 24hr a day.

Let’s suppose you are going to get Married but before getting Married you’re soon to be tell you 

I’ll be true to you ninety nine percent of the time.” That would be pretty good, wouldn’t it? Wouldn’t that be great? “Ninety nine percent of the time I’ll be true to you. I will.” How many of you would accept that? And yet we expect God to accept that, don’t we?


Ephesians 6:11. Put on the partial armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.


Is that what it says? “Put on the whole armor of God.”


The young David was able to slay Goliath because the giant did not use the whole armor. Where did that little stone find its mark? It sank into his forehead.

Where was his shield that came over his face, or his helmet? Where was the shield that his shield-bearer should have had? They were missing.

He was not wearing one, he did not feel the need to put it on, after all Davit was just a little small boy, not very big at all, what could he do to a Giant like Goliath  

Goliath didn’t have the whole armor and so he died, you cannot become a Christian today without the whole armor of God or you too will die.

One little loophole was all it took for David’s stone to transform the mammoth monster into a dead dwarf.


Don’t ever think satin is not taking aim! He wants nothing more then to keep you from a total commitment to Jesus. Satin does not care if you have a 70%, 80%, 90% or even a 99% commitment to Jesus. He just wan to keep you from having a 100% commitment


Ellen White speaks of Spiritual dwarfs: “Many professed Christians are in a fair way to lose both worlds. To be half a Christian and half a worldly man makes you about one-hundredth part a Christian and all the rest worldly.” Testimonies, Vol. , p.264.


There is no such thing as half-and-half unless you get it at Wal-Mart. In Christ there is a hundred percent or nothing.

A Hog and Chicken sets a good example.

Visualize a chicken and a pig vacationing together. They travel for many miles and many hours. Finally they get hungry. The sharp-eyed chicken spots a restaurant. Approaching the door, they read a sign which says, “Ham and Eggs: Our Specialty!” “Hold it!” oinked the pig. “What’s the matter?” clucked the chicken. “Plenty,” said the hog. “All they want from you is a little compromise. They are asking me for total commitment!” That’s exactly what God wants.

How do you become a lock, stock and barrel Christian? By total commitment to Jesus!


How do you have a great marriage? You are totally committed to it. These are marriages that last seventy-five years, those people are committed to it. Commitment! That’s what we need to pray for.

When a little trouble come to a great marriage, when both of them are committed to it, they’re going to stick with it. They’re not going to run.


Mark 8:34-36  Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?”


That’s what happens.


A few years ago a super fast concord jet was zooming off the runway in Paris, France, with its load of passengers. Everything was going fine. Do you realize that the pilot of a jet aircraft comes to a point of no return on that runway.

It gets going so fast that you cross a line where you have to decide to “fly or stop”. Once you cross that line you have no choice but to fly or to crash. The pilot of that fast jet came to that line. It seems that when he came to that point, a tire blew out and large chunks crashed into the fuel tank. The plane took off in a fireball and crashed in an explosion.


Unfortunately, churches are filled with many members who have never left the ground. They have been sitting on a spiritual runway for years and years gunning their spiritual engines but they never really reaching the point of total commitment, that line that you must cross as a Christian or you are not going to make it.

You cannot stay on the runway and reach heaven at the same time. You’ve got to get committed and get off, take off.


Paul was an accountant. I think he was a CPA (Certified Public Accountant). He worked in the business office at Southern Adventist University, probably, because he has a profit an loss statement here.


Philippians 3:7,8. But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ.


Praise God for Paul! That’s beautiful!


Man’s greatest possession.

What is man’s greatest possession? I would submit to you that man’s greatest possession is a relationship with Jesus Christ. That’s the greatest thing you can have all else is rubbish.


Jesus wants you totally: Hook, Line, and Sinker and that is another Sermon.

Do you want Him with all your might?

Just pray this little prayer: “Dear God, you be the needle and I’ll be the thread. You go first and I’ll follow wherever you may lead.” That’s what thread does.


*****   In the beginning of this sermon I ask you a question!

What in this world would keep you on a sinking Ship? The order is giving get off, Abandon ship and save your life. What is keeping you from getting into the gates of Heaven?

An old song goes like this: “I Surrender.. how much? All.” Yielding totally to Jesus. Another song says – “All The Way My Savior Leads me!” Are you willing to go all the way with Jesus?


The ship is sinking and there is not much time left, what are you going to do!

Think about it, but don’t take too long are you might find yourself drowning with sin unable to keep afloat


God Bless

Law & Grace



Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast.   


Sometime things are hard to see even if it is right in front of our eyes, but praise God he has giving us a Spiritual Mirror so we can not only see but understand his words. 

Story:    I once had a Boat named the Egabrag 1

You might ask what was so great about the Egabrag,it was no different then any other Vessel, but it had one of the most importance jobs in the Military working for the US Navy

Every day it preformed it job flawless, it never failed to do its job, too much was counting on it to fulfill its daily mission.

For almost 20 years it worked non stop, She was not much to look at but her Crew had great pride in running her

When she was decommissioned and I took her over, I just could not help but wonder, Who could of came up with a name like Egabrag 1 the name just did not made sense, until one of the Crew told me, people in California did not like a boat being called the Garbage 1   Egabrag backwards is Garbage         

Sometimes the Bible is like that; but just because we don’t understand a topic in the Bible it does not mean we should just skip over or pass it by, for it is by studying God word that we uncover the true meaning of the hidden truth berried deep in Gods word.

Let Us Pray


Are law’s importance?

Do laws put us in bondage?

Have you ever lived in a place where there were no laws?

What do you thing would happen to the USA if there were no law’s to govern the people?


Just think, if there were no laws; you could do whatever you want and no one would stop you. Except everyone else is doing the same thing as you, and there is no one stopping them either.


Do you see where a problem could come from?


What if I don’t like stopping for red lights, there are always a pain and turn red at the wrong times. So I am going to just drive straight through them from now on. I might not live long doing that; but remember there are no laws telling me I can’t.


Laws are not made to keep us from something good! They are made to keep us happy and safe. So everyone knows what to expect from the other person.


Were Gods Law’s to be a burden or a joy to mankind?


What about Grace if we have Grace Do we still need Law’s?

First we must understand What is GRACE?

We don’t have to earn it. It is the most valuable gift of all. The Scripture says in Ephesians 2:8, 9:For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Salvation does not come from any human effort. It is a free gift without money and without price, or let’s says with out cost to Mankind

In Revelation 5:9, the redeemed are pictured as standing before the throne of God, both the redeemed from the Old Testament times and from the New Testament times, singing glory to Jesus, the Lamb, “Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.”

A great, fundamental truth is expressed here—the only way a sinner can be saved is through the blood of Jesus. Since the time of Adam, sinners have been saved only by believing and having Faith in Jesus.

If men are saved through faith in Jesus Christ, where does the Ten Commandment law come in?

Throughout all the ages of controversy between Christ and Satan, the devil has sought to destroy the authority of God over man by casting the law aside and by preventing knowledge of the truth about God’s law.

The enemy of Christ brings this about by rejection of the law; or a wrong concept or understanding of the dispensation of the law as opposed to the dispensation of the gospel.  This is what we call being one sided or not seeing the hold picture.

Satan could bring in the principle of salvation through works, and prevent the functioning of the law according to God’s design.

Kind of writing it out backward so that you see it but don’t truly understand what it is saying.   Do you see the ECARG & HTIAF  Grace & Faith


The role that the law fulfills in relation to the gospel is two-fold.

1.  First, it is God’s standard of what is right and true.  As a standard the law expresses the mind and the will of God, for in Psalm 40:8 it says, “I delight to do thy will, 0 my God; yea, thy law is within my heart.”

2.  Second the law also declares man’s duty to God, for in Ecclesiastes 12:13 we read, “Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”

How often I have heard Christians boast that they don’t care about those old laws of God. “Why”

 Because they hide behind Romans 6:14, “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.”

They say that since they are saved by grace, through the atoning blood of Christ, they don’t have to keep God’s commandments at all. Have you ever heard that theory?

BUT:  You can not take just one scripture from the Bible and make a completed doctrine, that my friend is a very dangerous way to live. Because when you live your life that way you are not truly living it for Jesus, but for what fits your life style.

In Romans 6:15, the very next verse in the chapter, Paul says, What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? Paul says God forbid.” The fourteenth verse has stated, “Sin shall not have dominion over us,” or “it shall not be our ruler.”

We are not under Sin or the condemnation of the law either, when we obey God.


Because we are saved by grace, But that does not license us to sin? “God forbid.”


When an individual is saved by grace, he is under greater obligation than ever before to keep the laws of God.

As it says in Romans 3:31, “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid; yea, we establish the law.”


Are we licensed to break the law of God because we are saved by grace and saved by faith? God forbid. “Yea,” he says, “we establish the law.” The law is firmer than ever in our lives.


Who is under the law today in your city? Those who have broken it; they are under the law, and in jail.

The man who keeps the law, is the man who is free today.

The law breaker is under the condemnation of the law and doing time in jail.

Right here let us stop a moment and read the definition of sin in 1 John 3:4. “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”

Are we clear on this. When a man sins he has transgressed the law.

Who’s Law; “GOD”.

Every sinner has broken the law. What is sin? “The transgression of the law.” When a man sins, what does he do? He breaks the law of God.

There must be a law, otherwise he couldn’t break it. We are not under the law unless we break the Law.


I would fear to be called a minister of the Lord today and tell people it is ok to break Gods laws.


Matt: 5:19: 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.


How does God feel about man making his own laws and rules and teaching people to live by them instead of his commandment Law’s.


Matt:15:9: But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.


Is there danger in not keeping God Commandments?


You might say; Lord I am saved by grace I was told I don’t need to keep those old laws.


The governor of the state has life-and-death power. A man has been sentenced and condemned to die. He is under the sentence of death. Friends intervene; they present evidence to the governor, special factors involved in this case—contributing factors as to why this individual was caught in this particular crime.

As the governor investigates the evidence, he feels that this man deserves clemency; so he uses his official prerogative as the head of the commonwealth. He takes his pen and dips it in the ink and signs across those condemnation papers, “PARDONED,” and then signs his name.

That condemned man, my friend, has been saved by grace, not by his works or by his goodness.

He was doomed to die, and being ever so good in that death cell would never, never in this world save him. That is very obvious.

In other words, after an individual has broken the commandments of God, he cannot be good enough to save himself. The wages of sin is what? Death. We have all sinned, so are under the sentence of death. And there is only one way of salvation, through Jesus Christ.

Now the condemned man is pardoned. He can hardly believe his eyes as he sees the kindness, the stroke of generosity and love shown by that governor.

PARDONED. SAVED. FREE. You meet the freed man a little later and he says,

“Wonderful what that governor did for me, and wonderful this new freedom of mine.

Now I can break the law all I want, for the governor set me free from the law and from the sentence of death. I am saved by his grace.”

Did the governor pardon him so he could go out and become a greater law breaker? Shall we who are saved by grace continue law breaking?God forbid.” We are under even greater obligation to keep the law because we are saved by God’s grace.

Matt:22: 36-40

36: Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38: This is the first and great commandment.

39: And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40: On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


Love the Lord thy God it is the first four of the Ten Commandments;

Love thy neighbor it is the last six of the Ten Commandments;


Do we find any evident of keeping the old Jewish Ten Commandment Law in the New Testament    Yes we do….


Matt:19:17: And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

Mark:10:19: Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.


Luke:18:20: Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother


Luke:1:6: And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.


Over and over and over again we hear Jesus telling the people to keep his commandments.


If you really Love the lord, and want to show him that you Love him, then do what?

Show him you love him by doing what he tells you to do.


I have heard some say, “Those commandments were only for the Jews.” Then a Christian can lie and steal, and murder people, and do anything else that he pleases. Is that possible?

Jesus says in ” John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.

It was because Gods Laws were broken that Jesus gave His life. If these were to be abolished, why not abolish them before Jesus came to die? Then His death would not have been necessary.


John:14:21: He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John:15:10: If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.


Some people say, “Well, I can’t leave my church.” We’re not talking about church my friend.

We’re talking about following God. And if your church is in the way of you following God then you need to move out of it…….

Don’t look at the people. Look at the Light God is showing you.

We need to take one more quick glance here at what Jesus said. Matthew 7:21. “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”

Now notice verse 22. This is an amazing statement by our Lord. “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?”

Oh yes, miracle worked in the name of Jesus. Good so called Christian people who refuse to do one thing, and that was to keep God’s laws. 

Don’t you see Christ’s answer now in verse 23. “Then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

Oh, this is one of the most sobering passages in the Word of God, because we’re led face to face here with an understanding which we can’t escape—that it makes a difference to God what we believe and how we live.

 It isn’t enough to say, “Yes, I believe. I’m a church member.” Church will never get you to Heaven

 It’s a matter of how you live and what you believe about God that makes a difference.

Many will say, “Lord, we’ve cast out devils. We’ve done miracles. We’ve prophesied.” And yet, they will be lost.

It makes a difference what we believe. Anchor your faith firmly, my friends, to the rock of Scripture “GOD’s WORD” and nothing else.

Christian can you say you know Jesus and not keep his Commandments


1John:2:3: And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

1John:2:4: He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

That’s not my saying brother and sister, for it is written in the book called the Bible, which is none other then God word.

1John:3:22: And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

People are always looking for bargains, for special discounts. Some churches advertise, “Come to us, we will give you a bargain, 10% off of the Ten Commandments.” But will that stand in the judgment?

Just because some great churches tell you that they will make it easy and only ask you to keep nine of the Ten Commandments, is that sufficient? Will you pass in the judgment day?

Has any church the right to discount the commandments of God? How do we dare imagine that we are on the high road to heaven when we knowingly break any of God’s commandments?

Matt: 5:19: 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.

1John:3:24: And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.

1John:5:2: By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

1John:5:3: For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.


So now we know that it is very importance to keep God’s commandments.

If you love God then who are you enemy with, That’s right the world.

For you can’t love God and the world!


What are we told will happen to God people because they love the Lord their God and claim to be his people. His people who keep his Laws and keep the testimony’s of his Son Jesus Christ.


Rv: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.

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

Rv:22:14: Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

If the world hated Jesus then you know it will also hate you, But don’t worry He Jesus will give you the power needed to obey

Some time ago one of the items of interest in the newspaper was about a cave-in in a mine down in Pennsylvania somewhere—I think you might remember it. There were some miners trapped but there was reason to believe they were still alive under ground.

There was no way to dig down through the mine shaft that had caved in so they were hoping the miners were off to the side of the main shaft in a little room in a horizontal shaft.

So they brought in a great drilling rig and started drilling down through that solid rock trying to get into that room where they felt they were probably entombed.

Hour after hour, day after day, while the world watched, virtually holding its breath, as the news media portrayed for us the picture of how they went down there 6 inches and then another foot and down finally to three feet.

The families camped at the mouth of the mine where the rescue operations were going on.

Finally the day came when that great boring rig bore through the ceiling of that room where the miners were trapped. Rapidly it was withdrawn and they lowered a microphone taped to a little speaker down that hole.

The man who was directing the rescue operation at the top spoke into his end of the microphone and said, “Are you alright? Are you alive? Are you there?!”


And then a voice came back from the heart of the earth. “Yes, we’re here. We’re alright.”


 A great shout went up from the rescue workers at the opening of that pit. Then the director said this into the microphone.What do you want the most?” There was a pause and then a voice came back, “FREEDOM.”

Oh friends, heaven is involved in the greatest rescue operation the world has ever known.

All the universe is watching. Day after day, week after week, year after year, for the last six-thousand horrible years,

God has been seeking to rescue those of us who have been entombed by the avalanche of sin.

What must it do to His heart by our procrastination, our idleness, our spiritual postponement of eternal things.

We send back a message and say, “Oh, we’re satisfied with the trinkets, we’re satisfied with the things, but thanks just the same.”

How shall we escape if we neglect so great a Salvation?

Have you every ask your self just what is GRACE anyway,

Jesus Praying for UsWell here it is in a nut shell

GRACE    “God’s Riches At Christ Expense”





Elder Tim McNab                                                                                 Restoring Gods Truth Ministry

In Vain Do They Worship Me!


Matthew: 15:9: But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Picture of the Religous leadersWhat did Jesus mean by saying this to the Great Religious leaders 2000 years ago. For almost 3500 years from the time of Moses the Religious leaders were responsible for the keeping of God holy word and for showing the common people what they need to do. But yet when Jesus came he told the Religious leaders in Mark:7:13: Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

If it was possible for the Religious leaders in Jesus time, to put there traditions before the word of God; could the Religious leaders of our time 2000 years after Jesus came be making the same mistake

We need a deep understanding of what Jesus meth when he said this.

Look at what Paul told the Galatians:1:6: I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Paul was surprised that no sooner then he left false teachers came in behind him teaching something other than the truth and people believed it.

Let’s take a look into the book of Acts:20:29: For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Paul called them grievous wolves, why because they did not care for the flock these false teachers wanted only the power, glory, and money that could be made off the common people by selling them religion.

Search for the true church:

There must be over 2000 religions in our world today and over half of them claim to be Christians, follower of Jesus who claimed to be the son of God. Have you ever wondered why so many different Christian religions, how do you tell which one is the true one, they all claim to be the one true church.

I am a Christian first, and then I am a Seventh-day Adventist Christian last

I am a Bible Believing Christian because I believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and want to follow his example. I also believe in every word of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation that it is the word of God.  Teaching us about His love for mankind and how we need to live to show the World that we love God.

I am a Seventh-day Adventist because I believe the Seventh-day Adventist Church teaches the Complete Bible Truth as close as it can be with what light God has let shown in our day and time.
Many Churches clam that they teach the uncompromised word of God. But when it comes to keeping the 4th commandment they all say oh we don’t need to keep that one, it was just for the Jews we keep Sunday as the Christian Sabbath. Problem is that no where in Bible can you find that teaching. Not even the disciples of Jesus kept Sunday all through the New Testament you find them keeping and teaching on the 7th day Sabbath. And what is more interesting it is the only Commandment that God said to Remember and our Religious leaders saying it is OK to forget. Who do you believe God word or mans traditions?

I believe that more Truth is yet to come as we come closer to the End of Time and the light of God word is revealed unto his Children that have kept His word.

Many of good men and woman were lead astray by religion leaders who’s goal were not to teach the Pure Gospel of Jesus Christ but to teach there own version of how they believe it should be at the same time making a very nice living off of believers.

For this way they could hold people in darkness

Let’s take a look at some of the parables Jesus used to warn His believer about false teachings creeping into the Church.

Matthew: 25:
1: Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

What does a Woman represent in the Bible? That is correct a Woman represent a Church, a pure Woman or a virgin would represent Gods Church; and a harlot Woman would represent Satan church. In this story Christ out lines it as virgins so we know he is talking about his church and not the world.

2: And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3: They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5: While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

Both the wise and foolish became weary while waiting for the Bridegroom (Jesus) to come, so they slept. But look at what happens next

6: And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7: Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8: And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9: But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

Here my friend is what makes the different, did they all bring enough oil with them. They all had Jesus, they all were Christians, but there was something missing with half of them, the oil. And what does oil represent in the Bible that is correct Gods Holy Spirit

10: And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Christians who are ready will go in with the Bridegroom when he comes; but what about all the rest.

11: Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12: But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

I don’t want to hear my Lord say to me I know you not. We need to be studying Gods word everyday we need to be obeying His commandments all ten of them. What did Jesus say in Revelation:14:12: Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. Gods true Church will be the ones keeping His commandments, why because Jesus said in John 14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.

lesson03-18We don’t keep His commandment to be saved; we keep them because we are saved. If you love someone doing what they asked you to do is an enjoyment.

When I got married I wonted to do what ever it took to make my wife happy. So when she would ask me to do something I did it with joy. Why because I knew it showed her that I love her and still do after 39 years. When we do what Jesus ask us to do it shows others in the world who we love. So you see doing what someone ask is a way of showing you love them, that is what Jesus was saying.

There are some Churches today that say we don’t need to keep those old Ten Commandments Jesus did away with them on the Cross. Is that what Jesus said or is that someone interpolation, let’s take a look at what Jesus said

Look at 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.

I did not come to do away with but to fulfill all the Law and commandments. These words are coming for the same God who created man and gave man His laws. Jesus said I am not come to do away with my Laws but to fulfill my Laws.

A rich young man came up to Jesus one day and asked this question
Mark: 10:17: Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

What must I do so I can have eternal life: What did Jesus reply to him
19: Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

If Jesus came to do away with the Ten Commandments why would He instruct this young ruler that he needs to keep them.

Let’s go on and see his answer:

20: And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
21: One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
22: And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

What was this young man real problem, Commandment number 1 Look at Exodus 20:
3: Thou shalt have no other gods before me. His money was his God, he was blind to the fact that he was putting his money before God and breaking the very first Commandment.


3 AnglesTake a good look now in the book of Revelation and hear what the angle is saying to every creature on Earth, it is called the Everlasting Gospel.

Revelation 14:
6: And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7: Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Where in the Bible can we find those same words, in the 4th Commandment. It tells us who God is and what God did. God is the creator God; He made the Earth, the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars. He spoke the world into existence and then in Genesis 1 He said 31: And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.

Right in the very heart of Gods Ten Commandments we find the same words as the angle uses in the Book of Revelations. Go and read them for yourself

Exodus 20:
8: Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9: Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

My friend the Angle in Revelation is pointing man back to his Creator God; and is telling all the Earth to Worship Him and Him only this whole controversy is over one thing, who do you worship. God or Satan

So my question why did Jesus say to the religious leaders 2000 years ago In Vane do they worship me; because He knew as we get nearer to the end of time the religious leaders will again put there traditions above Gods Law. If they hated Him they will hate His true followers that do as He has asked them to do.

Matthew 5:
18: Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

I ask you what should you be doing, what Man said or what Jesus said. Read your Bible and study it and let Gods Holy Spirit lead you into all truth. You can’t trust the religious leaders today any more then you could trust them 2000 years ago.

Matthew 7:
21: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
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?
23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

In the judgment many of the great religious leaders today will be standing there on the outside saying Lord look at all we done for you have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works yes even miracles. But what does the Bible say Jesus will answer them. I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

These men knew the truth and refused to preach it because it was not the popular thing to do, it did not bring in the large groups of people that they needed to keep them living in there beautiful homes and churches. That is what will make the different between Gods true people. Who are you worshiping, who are you following.

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

I hope as you read this sermon that you study your Bible and see that no where did Jesus do away with any of His Ten Commandments. They are still there and still to be obeyed as on the very first day God gave them to Moses. And on the 4th He told Moses Remember, Remember what I did back in creation how it was I who created this World and all the things in it and it was I who created Man and gave him My Sabbath to be a day that we both will be together

The Ten Commandments are the very character of God Himself, in them He is showing us what He is like; He is a God of love, mercy, passion, and a God Justice.

In vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. In the garden God gave one little test to our first parents, He said you may eat freely of every tree in the garden except this one tree. It was a simple test of obeying what God said.

Along comes Satan and says to man oh you are not going to surely die. Who do you believe; you see the different it makes in doing what God said to do. Again God is giving man one little test of who will you obey. Jesus said in John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.

John:14:23: 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.

Just remember we don’t keep His commandment to be saved; we keep them because we are saved by His grace and we show that we love Him by doing the things He said to do. Keeping His Law keeping His Commandments, the ones He wrote on stone with His own finger.

Matthew:12:8: For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

Mark:2:28: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

Luke:6:5: And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

In three of the four Gospels you will find Jesus telling us what day He is Lord of, He is Lord of the Sabbath day.

John a disciple of Jesus was witting the book of Revelations almost 50 years after the resurrection of Jesus. Read Revelations:1:10: I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet. What day was John in the spirit, the day that Jesus called Himself Lord of; the Sabbath Day.


Friend do you love Jesus enough to do what He told you to do; don’t listen to anyone who is telling you different then what Jesus said. You want to show the world you love Jesus then do it His way and not the world’s way. Is God particular in what He says, you bet to know it. That is why He wrote the Ten Commandments Himself so no one could say oh those old Laws we don’t need them anymore.

God wrote them and on the 4th one He said Remember, don’t let anyone tell you to forget something that God told you to Remember.

God Bless

God Answers Pray



James: 5:16: Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. Gods PeopleThe effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.



There was once a Church in a small town that had a problem, a saloon open upped across the street. Church members were very angry about this and tried to get the Owner to close it or move somewhere else.


They appealed to the city official, who because of taxes refused to do anything about it.


So the Pastor called on the Church to Pray that God would shut down the Saloon, They meet at the Church everyday in special prayer meetings asking God to intervene in there behalf and help them to shut down the Saloon.


Sure enough about a month later during a very bad storm lightning struck the Saloon and burned it down to the ground.


The Church was delighted until they got served with a legal suit.


The owner of the Saloon was suing the Church, Claiming that their Prayers had resulted in Lightning striking his saloon, and so he held the Church as responsible and was suing them for damages


The Church Lawyers claimed that the Church and there prayers were in no way responsible for the saloon keeper’s damage.


The judge decided in favor of the Church!


But the judge said.


It is very confusing to find that the saloon keeper arguing in favor of the power of prayer and the Church arguing against it.


Do we really believe in the Power of Prayer?


Let us Prayer!



Have you every prayed for something and it came true, How do you know it was not just a coincident that it happened


I have seen many of prayers answered in my life that there is no possible explanation for;     Except God answered pray


What is Prayer and why is it important in a Christian life.


Prayer is the act of addressing God for the purpose of worship or petition. Specific forms of this may include praise, requesting guidance or assistance, confessing sins, as an act of reparation or an expression of one’s thoughts and emotions.


The words used in prayer may take the form of intercession, a hymn, words of gratitude, or a spontaneous utterance in the person’s praying words. Praying can be done in public, as a group, or in private.


What does Jesus tell us to do when we pray?


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


What ever we ask in prayer believe and you shall receive


Believe is another word for Faith and the Bible tells us what Faith is


Heb:11:1: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.


James tells us when we are praying we are to ask in Faith believing that we will receive what we have prayed for.


Jms:1:6: But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.


Many times we pray but don’t really believe God will answer our prayer, Why  because it may take too long or our prayer don’t get answered right away we think God does not hear us.


Some prayers are not answered right away and other prayers are answered in different ways that we are not aware of


Jms:5:15: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.


Question: is God a respecter of person


The answer is no, God treats everyone the same; we are all equal in Gods eyes. What God does respect is a person Faith in Him.


God has used Men and Women of Faith through history to foster his plan for mankind’s salvation


Jesus tells us what Faith can do.


Lk:17:6: And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.


This is why; Jesus said when you pray Believe


Story: of the King who was Sick Hezekiah


2 Kings 20:


1: In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death.  And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.

2: Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the LORD, saying,

3: I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight.  And Hezekiah wept sore.

4: And it came to pass, afore Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, that the word of the LORD came to him, saying,

5: Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD.

6: And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.


God hears our Prayers always


Story:  Zacharias

There was a man by the name of Zacharias who prayer asking God to give them a child, but for years his Wife remained barren. He is now in his late 70 and so is his wife.


It was his duty to go into the Most Holy place of the sanctuary and minister before the Ark of the Covenant.


There he sees and Angle, and the Angle tells him something wonderful, his prayers have been heard and that his wife was going to have a Baby


But he questions this is not possible because I am now too old and my wife is passed the age of life


That is unheard of, Old women having children      They do when God answers pray.


He must have prayed for many years, until his wife was well passed the years of child bearing, but God heard his prays, and in God’s time he answered this old mans pray.


Lk:1:13: But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.


Here is a lesion for all of us We must learner to wait on God’s timing.


If we would learn to wait on Gods timing we would find life so much easyer.


God does not promise that when you become a Christian you will not have problems. What he tells us to do is to pray and he will give you the strength to overcome your hardship, your difficulty, your danger, your misfortune, and your hard times.


Zech:2:8: For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.


Jesus Praying for UsJesus prayed for each of us, that our faith in him in times of trouble would not fail, for He tells us in John


Jn:14:1: Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.


What did we say belief was, Belief and Faith are the same.


So if you have Faith in what you are praying for then you need to start getting ready to receive your request.


Acts:12:5: Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.


What happened to Peter, an angle came by night and loose his chains and walked him right out of prison.


Why because the Church was praying for him.


You know you might say, Good Stories Tim, I like them all,


But does God do anything for His people today like he did for those in the Bible..


First thing; There is a big different between the Church of the 1st and 2nd century and that of today


People then were willing to Die for what they believe, rather then enjoy the pleasures of Sin for a season.


Today it is hard just getting Christians to come to Church if they are not mad at the Pastor or someone else in the Church.


Sometime God does not answer us because we don’t really believe that he will bottom line


I really can’t speak for anyone else but this I can tell you; and that is what God has done for me


Story:  Me and the Truck


I was on call for work one night many years ago and had to drive a fuel truck into some plants to fill up the air compressors that were keeping the plants running. While driving the truck I notices that the light were not very bright, but did not think too much about it till the engine died coming off a bridge and all I could do was to cost all the way down. As I came off the bridge I pulled over and then tried to restart the engine, but all I could hear was clicking under the hood. Oh no I said the battery is dead, that is why the lights were getting dim on me. I tried everything but no luck is was 1:30am and I called all the emergency contact numbers for my company and no one answered.


Oh no I said I just started this job a few months ago and knew I needed to get fuel in the Air compressors or they would soon start shutting down. I called my Wife who was at home sick and told her what had happened and how I could not get anyone at the office on the phone, I also knew she could not help me being as sick as she was. I was just a new Christian believer at the time and all I could do was to think why don’t you just pray about it. Yes right like that is really going to start the engine, I got out the truck again and did everything I know but nothing worked. I was stranded all alone and in a very bad part of town. Again my thought went to just pray, ok what do I have to lose, so I did I prayed. Not long after praying I got a feeling to try and start the engine, I flagged it off because just a few minutes before I already tired that. But again the feeling came try the engine. OK I will try it, and as soon as I turn the key the engine started, I could not believe it. I put the light switch on and the light were brighter then I ever seen. So I made my run that night and filled all the equipment and drove back to the shop parked the truck. Wow I could not believe it then I thought to my self maybe it was just a bad connection after all. But when I went to try and start the truck again it was dead and I mean completely dead. The next day I came in to work and one of the mechanics was working on the truck and so I ask him what was he doing. He said do you know who drove the truck last night I said yes it was me. He looked and said boy you are a lucky guy I said why, he told me the alternator was out and the battery was totally dead.  I knew then for sure it had to be an angle help me that night, all because I prayed in my time of need.


I believe we all sometimes ask God for things we don’t need or for something that is not good for us.


God in his Mercy understands and sometimes said no, it is the same thing that any good parent would do for Children you love.


One time my son Patrick came home with a big fish tank full of Tarantula (Spider) and he said Look Mom Dad can I keep them in my room.


Do I need to tell you what our answer was   NO


God is the same way; sometime things are not going to be good for us so he just said NO


I was in Love with a girl once when I was 16 and remember praying asking God to help me to marry her.


I event went as far as telling her we could get married and no one will ever know.


Then one day God let me see something in her I never seen before, and right then I realized why he said no. Then I prayed and said God thanks you for not answering that prayer of mine.


So the next time I prayer about getting married I ask God to provide me a Women to be my Wife.


Man and his Wife walkingAbout a year later, guess who came into my Life. She has been so much more then I could have ever asked or even hoped for, why because she was Gods choice for me. This year we will be married for 39 years, God is so very good


Phil:4:6: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.


Eph:6:18: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;


Col:4:2: Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;


Only God could have lead her into my life and on Gods time not mine.


2Tm:1:3: I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day;



1Pt:3:12: For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.


Have you ever wonders where your prayers are kept.


The Bible tells us that God has a special place where are kept the prayers of all his People.


Rv:5:8: And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.



Rv:8:3: And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.


Rv:8:4: And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.


There is nothing that is impossible for God to do; God hears the prayers of his children, He longs to talk to each and everyone one of us.


Sometimes we are too busy, sometimes we just don’t have time to give to God because we have so many things going on in our life.


Have you every wondered where do all these things come from, these time takers. They are all a vice from satan to do one thing, keep you away from God.


One of the best time taker satan every invested in was Music


Here he enter the ear and mind of many people, but that was not enough he wanted more so he invested in a tube we call TV


Now he has the ear, mind, imagination of the people all at the same time and he has them doing nothing.


Jesus holding a man prayingThe Prayers of a Father:

A minister concluded his sermon one Sabbath by saying, “If there’s someone here who wants help in getting to know God, and you would like me to pray for you, please raise your hand.” A young man stood up and said, “Please pray for me, sir. The burden of my sin is too heavy to bear.”

After the service the minister talked with the man and led him to faith in Jesus. The young man had been wandering around the country for 8 years without contacting his parents, so he decided to write to them and tell them about the change in his life.

Several days later, a reply came from his mother: “My dear son, you must have accepted Jesus Christ at the same hour your father went to sleep in Jesus. He had been sick for a long time, and that day he was very restless. He tossed from side to side on his bed, crying out, ‘Lord, please save my poor, wandering boy.’ I’m sure that one of the reasons you became a Christian was Dad’s unceasing intercession.”

A praying father will “ask,” “seek,” and “knock” in behalf of his children, persistently trusting his wise heavenly Father to do what is best (Matthew 7:7-11). Let’s thank God today for faithful parents who never stop praying for their children.


Parents never stop praying for your Children, It is never too late to pray for them and never to early to start praying for them


Jesus said in Jer:1:5: Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.


God bless and remember God knows what you need He is just waiting for you to ask, then He will provide it at the right time in your life; not too early and never too late.


Elder Tim McNab
