I am not a sinner

I am not a sinner

I am not a sinner!

        Eaton’s Bible Dictionary

The moral character of a man’s actions is determined by the moral state of his heart. The disposition to sin, or the habit of the soul that leads to the sinful act, is itself also sin (Rom. 6:12-17; Gal. 5:17; James 1:14, 15).

Hello friends,

You know, I know and Jesus knows that we are all sinners. But the majority of the world out there are in denial,

I am not a sinner b.JPG

no way are they a sinner, and people like us want our heads examining and staying well away from them. Getting out of that denial attitude is key to finding Jesus or finding ones pot of gold in life whatever that may be. It’s like a lot of these ‘help’ groups around the world, like alcoholics anonymous start off by saying in the group before they start to see ‘hello my name is whatever, I’m an alcoholic’, therefore if they admit they have a problem then they have got something to work on which they can hopefully resolve one day. People who don’t admit in public that they are alcoholics are destined to fail in their bid to become ‘clean’. Likewise, as soon as someone says that they are not a sinner, are going to have problems when it comes to mending their ‘spiritual disease’ caused by their sinful behaviour which they are in denial with. 

The above friends can be a little hard to understand for most, basically because there are three or four important steps to grasp, and if one doesn’t see a step clearly then the whole picture or objective becomes clouded. We as Christians know these steps because this is what Jesus teaches us, however for the ‘newcomer’ who wants to find Christ then these beginning days for them need to be crystal clear. So ‘we are all sinners’, this is fundamental to believe, and if the person’s mind is saying no, no, no to this important fact, they are destined to be ‘like the seed sown on the rocky soil’, where their belief will soon perish at the first encounters of persecution. So that person needs to say between themselves and God ONLY! ‘Hello my name is whoever and I’m a SINNER’. What a great prayer for someone to start off with, Amen!

However, another important point to grasp on one’s journey to salvation is, the above is for people who want to go to heaven with Jesus Christ by their side, where this is the only way. Quite sever for most to accept, but once accepted what a beautiful life the Christian will lead. Amen.

God is our sword.

God is our sword.

 

Hello friends, I wrote this on Friday 20th April 2012,

 

Not a lot as changed over the last five years, just closer to Jesus of course!

Today’s devotional

God is our sword

Hello friends,

It’s a great comfort to know that God our Father is our sword in times of trouble, in times of attack from enemies who wish us doom. God through Ezekiel chapter thirty-five verse five tells us, who believe in his son Jesus :-

Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end:

Ezekiel thirty-five verse seven:-

Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it him that passeth out and him that returneth.

Friends, summing up god’s words above, those who slay god’s children will be slayed likewise, and worse. It’s nice to know friends that god is our spiritual ‘armed forces’, and on the last day Armageddon is the battle field, where we’ll be safe at the back, in the rear with the love of Jesus, and Holy Spirit comfort.

god's sword 2

Friends, I believe that we wave palm branches singing hosannas to Jesus as he enters the kingdom to save us from our sins and lead us to heaven. On the other hand god our father waves the sword of his word at our enemies who try and follow us into the land of milk and honey, wishing us illness and plotting our destruction.

God’s sword will cut the weeds down friends, on the Day of Judgement, and our fruit and flowers will be left, reaped and gathered for heaven by Jesus’ angels at his second coming, appearing on the clouds friends, for us to see.

I believe friends that the angels will dig down to our roots on the ‘Day of Judgement’, our soul, where our whole heart, mind and soul will rejoice in heaven. Friends, it won’t concern us because we will be in heaven, the point being the weed’s evil roots and soul will be cast into hell also.

Thank you Jesus for giving us the word of god’s sword to protect us, giving us a clear and safe pathway into heaven.

Thank you sweet Jesus.

Amen.

The miracle of water to wine.

The miracle of water to wine.

John 2:10 …And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now…(KJV)

Hello Friends,

This is another fantastic miracle by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, turning water to wine.

water-to-wine-b

For sure this parable does seem quite complex to the people that don’t understand, and like the rest of Jesus’ teachings, what happens? people begin to mock and make fun of ‘the gospel teachings of Jesus Christ’. When understanding the works of Jesus, I personally like to relate similar parables in order to make a biblical point even more solid. I like to bring in the yeast or the leaven of the bread, and being wary of this when talking about the ‘water to wine ‘ parable.

So what are the similarities of these two parables in order for people to grasp the ‘truth’ of the matter. Well, Wine is fermentation of ‘SUGAR’, and bread is the ‘yeast’. Jesus said be aware of the yeast which represented the teachings of the Pharisees, like wise be wary of the alcoholic wine which is the fermenting of the ‘SUGAR’, the sugar in this case could represent false teachings also, so the best wine or the bare fruit juice is the best which is saved till the last, this has no alcohol which means from my point of view, the pure teachings only of Christ. Also unleavened bread has no ‘false teachings’ similar to the yeast that people add to the truth of God’s word making it less than holy.

Friends, we can always move forward confidently with Jesus in our hearts, and simple truths are all that we need in order to make those correct moves. Simplicity is generous, simplicity is the miracle, and for sure rude awakenings come to the unbelievers and backsliders out there when wine of ‘money makers’ or breaded yeast of ‘false prophets’ begin to ‘sour’ their soul. Being free from that alcoholic wine is so good for us friends where those people who are imprisoned by alcohol change to the glorious freedom Jesus’ loving truth gives us. We know friends that we don’t need miracles to receive Jesus Christ in our hearts, just a little faith.

Let’s worship a golden calf, not God!

Let’s worship a golden calf, not God!

Let us worship a golden calf, not God!

Hello friends, I was reading Exodus 32, where Moses was gone a while up mount Sinai talking with God, and the people down below getting restless at his absence, and from my point of view Aaron getting anxious that the people may ‘revolt’, so pacifying that possibility asked the people to donate gold in order for the calf of worship to to be cast and placed before an alter.

The verse from that passage that I choose where God spoke to Moses and said :-

Ex 32:10…Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation…(KJV)

So where are we at here friends? Well for us believers in Jesus Christ, we are in a ‘great position’ as to non-believers as we know what is happening giving us the chance to do something about it. We are that people in a way, gee I like material wealth which is similar to idolising riches in our modern day and age, I like money in my pocket, I love it, like when the people danced around the golden calf like it was God. It was Moses that stopped God crushing them, Moses also crushed the golden calf to powder and made them drink it. Moses saved his people from idolising material wealth, just like Jesus has saved us from the wrath of his father God in heaven, by pleading with his father and saying, ‘forgive them father for they know not what they do’

God wants us gone friends. Yes he’s loving. all loving, but we’ve gone back on our word that many times he’s sick of us, he’s had enough of the no hopers out there, he just wants his loving children to bring them home to his beautiful palace. This is where we hold Jesus’ hand, not God our father, where through his mercy, we will surely enter into paradise.

golden-calf-worship-b

It’s so difficult for the drug addict to ‘break the habit’, and only the strong do so and survive. It’s so easy for us to get closer to God by being strong and choosing Jesus instead of glistening gold and sparkling diamonds.

So friends, what do you say? 

Money or Jesus.

Let’s regularly pray to Jesus, let’s regularly stay together.

wrath-of-god-4

Just simple prayers throughout the day is enough.

When you are at your busiest, in a room full of noise when our minds are full of whatever we can turn to Jesus and say, ‘well Jesus we’re still here together’. Praise the Lord.

Baby Jesus statue’s head returned after orange replacement becomes viral joke

Baby Jesus statue’s head returned after orange replacement becomes viral joke

Hello Folks, I thought I would just post the above newspaper article as the head this artist temporarily put on the statue of our Lord and Saviour was really ‘hideous’, and this was obviously some publicity stunt by the artist.

It’s just as well we live in these modern ages as this artist would probably been burnt at the stake or put on the ducking-stool at the very least for blasphemy. This leads me to briefly talk about the worlds ‘modern day attitudes’ towards Christianity, Jesus Christ and God, where obvious morals, virtues are through the window. Seriously, mocking Jesus isn’t new, they did it as he hung naked on the cross, and they’re doing it now, perhaps making a few dollars here and there. In fact this is a great example of how people ‘throw away their only hope’ of happiness in this world, by disowning the only person who can save them, Jesus Christ. I suppose the ‘good news’ that did come out of this story was the fact that the original head was returned and fixed back on to the statue body!

People don’t have to fear Jesus.

People don’t have to fear Jesus.

People don’t have to fear Jesus

Hello friends after reading Mark chapter 4 I decided to concentrate this Christian writing on the final verse which reads

Mark 4:41… And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him…(KJV)

So friends if the disciples feared Jesus, how are the rest of the world going to view him? They are going to have a greater fear of the unknown caused by their lack of faith, their sinful thoughts and behaviours, their lack of understanding, their problem whatever that may be.

They don’t have to fear Jesus though, Jesus is love! The big gun they have to fear is God! 

Now Jesus is teaching us here what faith is all about and the preceding verse shows us that the disciples were fearful of the storm because they had NO faith in God! You see friends, God who is Jesus Christ was with the disciples, even in person, some two thousand years ago, and just because he was asleep on a pillow, their lack of faith was like God was not with them, not realising how blessed they really were to have God in the same close proximity of the boat meant they were the luckiest people alive, ever in fact. But that lack of faith they possessed may as well have put Jesus on the other side of the world.

So friends, it’s all about faith, trusting something or someone you cannot see. Just one question at this point, why do we have faith in Jesus? Well we are the lucky ones, because we love him. Isn’t that fantastic for us though friends, we automatically have faith in Jesus because we love him, and lot’s of people from all walks of life can’t love him because for some personal reasons they could never find that miniscule mustard seed of faith to begin with,

No need to fear Jesus 2.JPG

making them envious of us, and making them fearful of Jesus because of lack of faith.

We live such peaceful lives loving Jesus, that sea is always glass still calm when Jesus is close by and any close by rocks just turn into floating jellies which gently rebound us off.

We will never fear Jesus as true love casteth out fear. Amen.

Jesus is always near you

Jesus is always near you

 

Jesus is always near you.

jesus-by-your-side-2

Paul the Apostle wrote many epistles to his followers and loved ones which can be seen in the New Testament, and what always struck home with me was the fact that Jesus Christ was always close to him. I know Jesus is always close to his believers, however with Paul’s letters this is reinforced into our souls every time we read his God inspired words.

jesus-by-your-side-3

Jesus is always near you through his stories and parables, and with me the Good Samaritan

jesus-by-your-side-5

always reminds me of how Jesus Christ always in times of need, like when the beggar was beaten, robbed, left for dead, and none would help him save the Good Samaritan, a ‘people’ that were despised by nearly everyone just like Jesus was despised by nearly everyone, stopped to save his life!

jesus-by-your-side-6

You know friends, all of the times that we have been like that beggar, not literally of course, but times like when we scraped our knee as a kid, or times when we encountered our first close bereavement, virtually everyone passed me by except Jesus. Mum put the plaster on, Jesus stayed by your side too, until those sniffles and cries stopped and turned to laughter.

jesus-by-your-side-4

Jesus is always near friends, and always will be.
