Please do not get me wrong…I wish you a Happy New Year!

 

We all look to the new year’s for a fresh start.  But, the truth of the matter is a really fresh start is a life where you make Jesus your personal Lord and Savior.

This is not “religious mumbo jumbo,” but it is true.  You don’t believe me…try this…say a prayer…

Dear God, please show me if you are real and I will believe it.  Show me how to change my life for the better, show me how to have peace and no fear for Christ‘s sake.  Amen

Let’s look at some Salvation scriptures:

But now in Christ Jesus, you who once were [so] far away, through (by, in) the blood of Christ have been brought near.
Ephesians 2: 1

 

And although you at one time were estranged and alienated from Him and were of hostile attitude of mind in your wicked activities, yet now has [Christ, the Messiah] reconciled [you to God] in the body of His flesh through death, in order to present you holy and faultless and irreproachable in His [the Father‘s] presence. Colossians 1: 21-22

Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now Your word do I keep [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying it]. Psalm 119: 67

It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I might learn Your statutes.
Psalm 119: 71

Come to Him [then, to that] Living Stone which men tried and threw away, but which is chosen [and] precious in God’s sight.
1 Peter 2: 4

Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them. Hebrews 7: 25

For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation.
Romans 10: 10

Luke 9

Jesus Sends Out the Twelve

1 When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, 2 and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.

 

There is no Atheist Salvation.   All they have to offer you is:

1. There is no God

2. Don’t go to church

3. Don’t read the bible

4. When you die…you got nothing

5. Try to build the ranks so you won’t be all alone.

GIVE ME A BREAK!!!   THESE PEOPLE NEED OUR PRAYERS QUITE SPECIFICALLY THAT JESUS WILL APPEAR TO THEM IN THEIR SLEEP AND WHEREVER THEY GO!   REMEMBER SAUL OF TAURSUS?

* Please note; there appears to be an all out campaign amongst atheists to recruit people.  If it is not of the God in heaven.  It is of the god of this world…

Over 200 million people have asked Google if Atheists are also Gay…that appears to be an untruth and I have no idea how that one got started.

If there’s one thing I know from studying the Word of God and being on the Internet; it’s that every single atheist has their own personal story related to their distance from God.   They are just people,  Some will insist that they are totally healthy, happy and whole; but that’s not all that there is to it.

It isn’t necessary for me to try to convert an atheist.   I know for a fact that many of them are very intelligent…which proves what a wonderful minister that I adore once said:   “God can’t talk to smart people.”  And no, for those of you who “think” you are smarties…this is not literal…it doesn’t mean that all believers are dumb…it means that according to the world’s standards…the really smart or so called wise people cannot hear from the heart.

But even though the bible written so long ago by holy men of God calls those who do not believe in God fools and warns us of the great deception…I  say that God can speak to the hearts of those who think theat they’ll drop dead one day and that will be the end.  Well, under pressure it seems that many are saying they do not know,

 

Would you subscribe to a service after asking a critical question and being told:  “I don’t know.”?   Well would you?

Would you buy a car from a salesman who when you ask your make it or break it question replies with a cool:  “I don’t know.”  ?

1THE [empty-headed] fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable deeds; there is none that does good or right.(A)  Psalm 14: 1  (Amplified)

 

So, in conclusion the Atheist Salvation is a life free from spirituality, free from Christ and the things of God…what kind of life is that?

Few atheists know that a majority of Christians believe in a relationship…and not religion…somebody tell em.


 

 

I was in front of the casino downtown, on the steps actually.  I had just walked out the door.  I had all of my money back.  I had traveled to two casinos.  The first I left with less than ten dollars.    I had lost fifty dollars that I really needed at the first casino. For some “really stupid” reason I had thought that I could win when I wanted to. It had all become such a burden and to make matters worse; it was my birthday.


I needed to make a phone call.  That was the only one recourse for me…I said a prayer:  “Father, please take this off of my heart.”  I remember saying how sorry I was for making such a mess of my finances.

That was August of 2000. I had supposed that I’d have more control when I went back or that I would cool it for awhile.  Instead, I never went back again.  God was cleaning me up.  He had bigger plans for me.  It wouldn’t be long before I found a great Bible teaching church, developed a prayer life, started a prayer group with friends, began to write about God on the Internet and begin to do the work of the ministry.  My life did a total revolution all because of God’s mercy.

Today, I ask you to examine yourself.  Is there anything that you would like to have cleared out of your life.   This is a good day to say a prayer.  God is not a feeling.  If you do not have a connection to God; know this:  He’s just waiting to have  a connection with you.  He wants to meet your every need.  He wants to spend time with you.  He wants to take your burdens from you.  He wants you to be healed, to have peace, to be wise, to be safe, to have no fear.  He wants to protect you…there is no one, nothing that can want your life to be better.

We’ve all missed the mark or sinned; but we have to admit it, not to the world; but to God:

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

“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” (Romans 5:12)

“If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 1:10)

Jesus said: “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:5)

I know that God sent His son Jesus to atone for our sins:

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 3:16)

We must acknowledge Christ as the master of our lufe:

“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.” (Romans 10:9)

We invite Jesus into our hearts to be our personal savior:

“For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:10)

We do this in prayer:

Salvation Prayer

My Dearest Father, I have sinned and I ask for  your forgiveness today. I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and that he died  for my sins,  and  made available unto me  redemption,  sanctification, wisdom and right standing with God.   He paid the price with His blood.  I invite the Lord Jesus into my heart right now and I accept him as the Lord of my life to be my personal savior.

What’s Next?

If you’re like me…you will need direction.  Develop a prayer life and get a good bible with a great reference section and start reading it.

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalms 119:105)

If you do not have a church home that is teaching you ; pray and ask God to send you one.

Then…

pray about everything that comes up.

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

Always REmember:

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (2 Timothy 3:16)

And most importantly:  Tell others about Christ:

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” (Romans 1:16)
