Salvation is important to me.  It changed my life.  It’s first and foremost on God‘s agenda…which is why Jesus came.  No other religion or belief system can tell you this.  None!

A GOD PRMISES

But I am not even going to go there because our focus is on salvation; snatching souls back from entering the pits of hell.  Many people do not know they are headed in that direction.

But for 2013, I am asking you if you read this to commit to God to minister salvation to a minimum of five people up to as many as you can…to pray for people to be put in your path.  You see, the devil wants you to believe that you cannot tell people about Jesus.  However, God speaks to people’s hearts all of the time and the bible says the following:

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

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

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

1 John 5:11-13 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

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.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

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.

John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new

Psalm 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

1 John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us

John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

What’s your version of Thanksgiving believer?  If it’s the very same as the world’s…something is not quite right.  Our vision is God’s vision…

____________________________________________________

We celebrate Thankgiving different than God does.  He must be waiting patiently for us to get on the same page.  Now, don’t get me wrong…there is nothing wrong with spending $150.00 or more for a one day meal that will last only  a few days and staying up all night cooking.    There’s nothing wrong with getting together with family or friends as a sign of love and respect to enjoy one anther’s company.  There is nothing wrong with volunteering to cook for, serve or feed the people that are less fortunate..no it’s good.  There also, is nothing wrong with doing good deeds or helping people.

And certainly, it is good to give Thanks!  No…better than good!  But, stop for a moment and think about this:   God was so serious about saving our souls from eternal damnation that He gave His only Son to come here, suffer and die as a man…to save us.  None of us could have or would have done that.  And while I am at ; let me say that the “real turkey…jive turkey…is Satan. 

The Real Thanksgiving goes on in heaven!    THAT IS WHEN GOD IS PLEASED THAT WE ARE REALLY DOING HIS WORK…CARRYING OUT HIS MISSION…WITH JOY…HEELS CLICKING…HEARTS BEATING RAPIDLY…Our souls longing to save souls!   WHEW THAT’S GOOD STUFF!   (as my Pastor always says…) Yet, we can celebrate it here on earth…(Thanksgiving)  every time that a soul is snatched back from the pit of hell!   Think about it….

Matthew 19:24-26 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved ? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

COMMENT: “computers for Dummies” is one of a host of books written in simple terms for people who are “technologically challenged”. Well, I fall into that category, but I prefer the term “novice”. One of the problems I have is sending an e-mail to someone who is not in my address book. I have to make sure that every single character in the address is correct; otherwise it will not be delivered. If I make the slightest mistake in searching for a Web Site, I am rebuked. In cyberspace, one has to be perfect in order to communicate. I thank God that He is not that way! We don’t have to go through any particular ritual to get the Father’s ear. It is not necessary to bow our heads, close our eyes, bend our knees, or lay prostrate. Of course, if you feel prompted to practice any of these gestures you can, but they are not prerequisites. When Peter began to sink in his attempt to walk on water, he didn’t have time for any rigmarole. He cried out to Jesus and the response was immediate. (Matthew 14:30,31) However, we are given some instruction regarding prayer and it’s in John 14:13,14. . . .”And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”
