i am righteous

I hear this all of the time!  God has too many rules.   When I quizzed them further; they explained  that they were actually fearful that they might work really hard  and still might not make it into heaven.  I was told this more than once.

I had to explain that you cannot earn your salvation; it is a free gift.  When we accept  Jesus as Lord, we are made righteous or in right standing with God.    The bible says on our own our righteousness is as filthy rags.

Righteousness is often confused with holiness, but it isn’t.  The fact of the matter is that some church folks turn off those that don’t go to church making them think that in order to get into heaven one earns brownie points; when in fact righteousness is a free gift.  Jesus paid the price with his blood.

Because Jesus  paid the price for believers, we will live forever.

Eph.2:8,9 For by grace are ye saved through faith, not of yourselves…not of works
Mk.10:25-27 Who can be saved? With men it is impossible
Rom.3:20a By deeds of law shall no flesh be justified in His sight
Rom.11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works
Gal.2:16 Justified by the faith of Christ and not by works of the law
2Tim.1:9 Saved us, not according to our works, but according to His grace
Tit.3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done

prayer114

Today on the news there was an unusual story.  A young man robbed a woman of $20 and something else and instead of crying or yelling she asked him if he wanted prayer.

He fell to his knees and then he hugged her.

Before he left, she hugged him.  The next day he turned himself 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.

You have an obligtion to tell people about Jesus.  You really do.  You never know who needs Jesus; you never know.  What you do know if that everyone  (yeah!) needs Jesus!  Leave NO STONE UNTURNED!

GO BROTHER!   NOT WATERED DOWN!

PRAISE FOR THE DAY!!

I’M TRADING MY SORROWS by John Tesh

There are a whole lot of people that all of a sudden believe in Jesus.  The Jehovah’s Witnesses do.  But, they don’t say He is the Son of God.  The Muslims believe that He is a prophet.  Christians believe that He is the Son of God.    But, how much do you love Him?  Is He the Master, the Saviour, the Lord over your life?  If, he isn’t…. then all you have is an expired insurance policy worth nothing at all.  This is a fact.    Don’t be trapped in hell! IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP!!!  If anyone told you otherwise…Hear me:  IT’S A LIE!!!

There are a lot of people who believe that when they die nothing happens.    They don’t believe in heaven or hell.  Then there  who believe some other stuff that I won’t touch with a ten foot pole.  It wasn’t until today, that I began to research to find out just exactly what people believe about death and an afterlife that I was so shocked!

I just want to pray:

Father in heaven ,  we have today this confidence in You that You hear our petition of faith asking You to reveal to all the people of the earth Your truth.    We say that no matter who they are; they have the ability to hear it.  Please release them from pride and rebellion and give them the knowledge to break curses that are over them or that they are walking in-in the authority of Jesus.  Help them to know that Jesus may have prophesized; but that he is not a prophet…but the Son of God!    We are asking You to do  Spiritual heart surgery on every person that reads this prayer today.    If they be Christian, Muslim, Buddhists or Atheist…draw them closer or open their eyes as You deem necessary in the Authority of Jesus The Messiah.

Teach them today as You hold their hand saying fear not I will help you; to recognize the truth and liberate them.  Teach them not to be offended at the truth of the Gospel; the good news.    We put out any fire the eneny Satan would use to make them to focus on other groups or other people to keep them distracted from the truth.  We set free any confused thinking that is holding anyone in bonds.  We break them away from any brainwashing bondage.

Father help people to understand that if no Blood was shed, there can be NO REMISSION OF SINS for their atonement no matter what they say!

We pray for 20-20 spiritual vision from all who are oppressed of the devil even if they don’t want to be.  We plead the Blood of Jesus over everyone reading this and we insist and expect that they will have peace in their lives from this day forth!  We ask it all in the Authority of Jesus and by his precious Blood.  AMEN.
