The World and ME

Being a Christian is tough in the world and everyday it seems that the gospel is getting further away from us. We must understand that this world is not for us, and understand that we are blinded by worldly things. The things that blind us keep us from God’s love and grace. As Christ loving people we should not let the flesh win over your sprite God want us to stay focus on him at all time. You are not to worry at all but put it all in his hand. The big question is how do we do that? And the answer is faith. We have a choice and to me it is simple accept the Lord Jesus as your true and only savior.  The punishment for not follow Jesus is Hell. Hell is a real place and the world is set up to take people mind away from Christ and keeps them focus on worldly things. The Lord said that the one who loses his life will surely gain his life. He is not talking about dyeing but about how you live your life. That means giving up the thing that are not God like for instance I use to love Hip Hop music until I realize how much evil was really in it. We must watch out for the things we let our young children watch, so many kids don’t know who Jesus is or what he has done for us. The devil want to stop your growth with Jesus, the only way he can do that is by lying to you. The devil’s trick is to drown you sin so you never see the true light of Jesus. But don’t be fooled you have power over the devil and his demon cause you have the blood of Jesus on you. When Jesus dies on the cross he gives us his power thru grace and love to reign over all the earth.

So I ask you to use your God given power to reign over worldly things and help bring people to Jesus. To repent is to turn away from your sin and live a new life. At first it will feel like you can’t but stay strong you are not waking alone he that rule over everything is with you.  If we keep our focus pointed towards the throne and pray that we will win this battle and rejoice in love of our Lord and Savior Jesus.

 

PSALM 86 11-17 TO GIVE YOU STRENGTH AS YOU START YOUR WALK WITH THE LORD.

Teach me your way, O Lord,    that I may walk in your truth;    give me an undivided heart to revere your name. 12 I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,    and I will glorify your name for ever. 13 For great is your steadfast love towards me;    you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol. 14 O God, the insolent rise up against me;    a band of ruffians seeks my life,    and they do not set you before them. 15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious,    slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. 16 Turn to me and be gracious to me;    give your strength to your servant;    save the child of your serving-maid. 17 Show me a sign of your favour,    so that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame,    because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.Jesus_013

Why God Loves You So.

untitled

The enemy of the lord will try his best to fog your mind and have you questioning  why GOD loves you so much. See God’s love is more than the human mind can understand it’s never ending. He seek’s to provide every human being with it. In Deuteronomy Chap 6 God said that we are “his treasured possession” how awesome is that. Remember always that God gave us his only son so that we may be saved. He died for you and me, we were doomed and his love saved us. Stop and take a moment out of your busy day and just ask the lord for his grace and love. Look to the heaven and ask him to come to your life and to fill you with his joy and love. The lord is waiting for everyone to turn from their sins and come home to Him. Let us walk a life that will defeat the enemy of the lord and not worry about the things of this world but the world to come. It pains God when he losses a soul, it hurts Him deeply. Think about that for one moment, that your best friend our heavenly father and he is in pain cause of our sins. Now if you would ride or die for your hommie down on earth, if you will go to the highest mountain for your mom, wife, daughter, son then why not do the same for the Lord Jesus. For He is the one that was gracious enough to allow them to be apart of your life. He has also given you more love than they could ever give you. So is He not worth more than them?  In the book of Matthew Jesus tells us that we should not love our parents, kids, friends or the things of this world more than him. We are his children all of us, and we are his light in this world. Hell is a real place and so is heaven don’t let the devil in he is a liar and a cheat. Jesus died for YOU! Jesus died for ME! Jesus died for US! Now let’s Follow Him Home! We started this blog to bring people to Christ and that is what we plan to do. So please ask the Lord Jesus for forgiveness of your sins and to come into your life and to take control and begin to live free.

THE SINNER’S PRAYER

“Heavenly Father, have mercy on me, a sinner. I believe in you and that your word is true. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God and that he died on the cross so that I may now have forgiveness for my sins and eternal life. I know that without you in my heart my life is meaningless.

I believe in my heart that you, Lord God, raised Him from the dead. Please Jesus forgive me, for every sin I have ever committed or done in my heart, please Lord Jesus forgive me and come into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior today. I need you to be my Father and my friend.

I give you my life and ask you to take full control from this moment on; I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ.”

Amen.

13 For great is your steadfast love towards me;    you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious,    slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

FEAR

This is a big topic! Fear is there from the moment you are born till the day we rest. The question that no one seem’s to ask, is should we fear anything but GOD? The bible has a lot of messages about fear but none of the messages tells us to fear the things of this world. In fact the only thing we are to fear is God himself. There are tons of examples of God’s love and protection. So there should be no reason to live in fear. For example in the book of Joshua Chp. 10-8 ” And the Lord said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee”. I was watching a program on TBN the other night and they had mentioned ” No man knows the day or the hour when our lord will return. As followers of Christ this should make our days on earth the happiest because we know this home is not permanent.” It touched my heart when I heard that. This is just a topic that I have been hearing a lot about and would love your feedback and open discussion on the matter.

Thank You from James and Brittney Artis

Ps 2:11  Serve the Lord with fear,
and rejoice with trembling.

Pro 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge:
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
