The Beginning of…

the Bible

In the beginning…

The very first three words in the Holy Bible, “In the beginning”. That short phrase has so much power within it.

I looked at the words over and over. I say them over and over to myself, “In the beginning”. The words of God, goes on to say, “God created the heaven and the earth”. But it’s the words “in the beginning, they have me in awe. In the beginning of time, after everything….  then, God created Adam and Eve.

“In the beginning”. It means something; matter of fact it means a lot. God could have said, “first or before, or even I created it all. He could have even said, I created man last or the heaven and earth was the first thing, but instead He said, “in the beginning”. We all have a beginning. What is a beginning? Lots of things have a beginning, all things have a beginning. All things have an origin.

Beginning is life.

The beginning of a life.

The beginning of you.

The beginning of self.

The beginning of growth.

The beginning of understanding.

The beginning of – No.

The beginning of – Yes.

The Beginning of your life, the Bible is the beginning of your life. It has your story; it has my story and everybody else’s story. But the story of your life is just the beginning, because it will continue, long after the fact… The Bible has you covered. There has to be a beginning for everything that ever existed on earth and in the earth. There is only one of us, but we have several beginnings. When I say several beginnings, I mean several beginnings which fit into your one life. We only have but, one life but many beginnings. Many beginnings to self. Self is you and all of you. No one else can be you, or live your life for you, as you. It has to be you and only you. Because of the things and circumstances; we may often wish we could live another life or become someone else, but we can’t. Our beginning is ours, and so is our end. Say for instance when we mess up, or something happens we wish we could change, or could have changed. We can’t. Say for instance you caused a serious car wreck and someone was killed, don’t you wish you could have changed the situation? You Can’t. You may have said something hurtful, accidentally did something wrong or made a terrible mistake, and could you take it back? No. You may say if only I had…

If I, just could have…

That all goes back to the beginning.

“In the beginning”.

Just think. For example, when Eve ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. For her, that was her beginning of a sad and fearful life. The beginning of emotions, the beginning of confusion, the beginning of sadness, the beginning of problems and so on. If she had only obeyed the instructions of God.  I can imagine how she must have felt; I can even imagine how Adam must have felt. The regret, the pain, heartache, the grief, the isolation, the loss of their best friend, their Daddy’s trust.

But in this life, beginnings can good for some and bad for others. The beginnings of mistakes. The beginnings of triumphs. The beginnings of victories, and failings. When God created Adam and Eve, I am sure He knew the possibilities of failures on the part of Adam and Eve. He created them to be prefect. When the beginning of something awful creeps in, then there is a possibility that everything can become spoiled or rotten. It can be considered messed up or sinful. There can be a beginning to sin in our lives. Something sinful happened. That’s the beginning of sin for each of us. There’s always a beginning to something, and for something,in this life we live.

Was that sin when Eve did the thing she was not supposed to do? Yes. When we do things we are not supposed to do, is it sin or just bad judgment? Both.

Can sin be both bad and good? No. Sin is sin and God hates sin!

But that brings into the subject another question; what is your story?  As you begin to read the Bible and share in the stories of all the people in the Bible, you will begin to find yourself. If you read long enough you will find yourself, and your beginning.  You will identify with the person in the Bible that has your attitude, your thought process, and your willingness to obey or not obey. You will find reminders of your life. Reminders of the life of someone you know. But no matter what you are there.

God created one of all. But we all have sinned in one form or another. The only difference is that, some of us may know how to control it better than the other person. Like King Solomon said,  “That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God require that which is past”.  That means nothing is new to begin with. God will require an answer from you for whatever reason, concerning your sins.

Let us understand that the beginning of sin is the beginning of our demise. We accept life as it is, never to correct our sinful self. We go on each day living in sin, never to repent, but it will stop one day. That will be the beginning of our end.  We must make a new beginning to please God. Why wouldn’t you want too? There is always someone whom we seek to please; husband, wife, children, boss, whomever we love the most or whoever we believe to be in authority. We seek to please. But God is the universes’ Authority. He is the Ultimate Authority, some choose to believe that, and some choose not to believer that.

You are always given the chance to begin to live for Christ, the Master behind the Beginning! God, Jehovah in the beginning, also gave us birth of a righteous mind to understand all that is good and pleasing to Him. It is time we use our minds and bodies to serve Him in all His glory. He gave it all to us first, so why not give it all back to Him. The best thing in this life He gave to us. So now give it back. Show God we appreciate His mercy and grace.

One thing God gave Adam and Eve was credit for cursing us all. He let us know the reason for all the troubles we have. God even warned us about satan , and how he convinced Eve to sin. God has no secrets and tricks to cause us to sin. We do it all by ourselves as Eve did. We like it because as Eve did, she saw…

“She saw that the tree was good for food and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit, thereof and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.”

This is what that passage tells me; in the beginning her eyes “saw” that the tree was food, food is something we need to live. But we don’t need sin to live. Plus the food looked good to her eyes, something she desired to have such as a fine piece of jewelry. Have you ever eaten something that just melted in your mouth, a good piece of chocolate? A tree to be desired, something to be desired, such as a million dollars. Did she know the meaning of the word wise or did satan plant the thought in her mind when he told her, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Did that make her want it more? So after he told her that; she ate!!! Did satan make her eat or was it something she wanted to do all along?

I’ll tell you what; satan can’t make you do something you do not want to really do! So she wanted to eat it and she did, even causing Adam to eat of the tree too.

In your mind’s eye what do you see? A woman ready to sin. A woman ready to cause someone else to sin.  A woman who did not want to do what was good and right. That was a new beginning for the both of them. For us too. One they wish they could have taken back a trillion times. God sent them both away from Him. One day we will stand before God, and some will be turned away from Him also. Don’t play around with satan in the garden you will pay! Adam and Eve were given the opportunity to obey His law and His command, not to eat of the tree.

So I ask you now – Get your beginning right. Right now! Try by beginning to understand Christ God Our King.  Your beginning started a very long time ago, In Christ Our Lord and Creator.

The PoWE’r in the sIN,or the sIN in the PoWE’r (intentional word errors in title)

LOVE THE SINNER HATE THE SIN

LOVE THE SINNER HATE THE SIN

Have you ever wonderd why someone in authority can be so cruel?

Have you ever wondered why some people love to inflict pain on others?

Have you ever paid attention to a person when they are inflicting sorrow on someone else?

Have you even seen a person’s face when they have done you wrong and know they have?

Have you ever watched someone when they have made you feel uncomfortable?

Have you ever come face to face with someone who has lied on you and you know it?

Have you ever needed a customer service representative’s help desperately, and they seemed to experience joy, in your disappointment, and  didn’t find a solution to your problem?

Have you ever tried to figure out how come some of us can’t experience pain, but joyfully give it?

Have you ever needed the mercy of others but none was there?

Have you ever suffered because of someone else?

Ever hoped relief would come but it never did?

Well you get the idea….

It is because of the PoWEr in sIN; or can I say the sIN is in PoWEr.

That literally means:

The sINner has PoWEr in their sIN nature. When a sINner exerts PoWEr the outcome is always a sINful one. So whenever a sINner is given poWEr, it is always – ALWAYS used in the wrong way.

How and why can I say that?

LOOK AROUND…. Listen….. Comprehend… Analyze… Think…. Be Quiet… Pause for a moment…Slow down….Meditate on things…. Hush…Reason…Watch… Observe…Pay attention….Perceive…Recognize… Seek…Get the picture…Grasp…See… See through…Understand….Search…Be aware…Catch on…Know…Realize…Take in…Be informed…Gather…Hear..Learn…Process….

Look at people, watch them, you don’t have to stare

Listen to people, hear them

Watch people; in other words observe them…. Friends, Family, Associates, Strangers, Church Members, Co-Workers, Instructors, The Pastor(s), the People you watch on TV, the Entertainers, the President of the US, the People that occupy the Senate, the Congress, Police Officers, Judges, the Persons that occupy the seats in the Supreme Courts, your Neighbors, the Cashiers at the corner store, Teachers,  Bankers, People you trust, People you don’t trust!!!! Just open up your eyes, and mind…

What do you see, who do you see?  You see a people, you see a person, who are human like you, like me; all having a natural tendecy to sin!

Watch how they act, watch the things they do, pay attention to the things they say, just observe and the conclusion is usually the same. We all SIN. The key is there is PoWEr in sin. Yes PoWEr, but guess what! It’s the WRONG kind of PoWEr! Having or possessing the wrong kind of power can be DEADLY!

Deadly is what it causes. If we can just think about all the hurtful things that we have done or others have done to us. It causes sickness, broken hearts, ulcers, mental illnesses, emotional illnesses, cancer, stress, sleeplessness, more than normal doctor’s visits,  you get the idea.

Example: I had broken my leg and had to have a metal rod placed in it, so I got behind in my house note, I couldn’t work right then. So Wells Fargo did everything to take my house. They put it up for sale about 10-15 times with a sale date,  people coming by to take pictures and  just to look at it, I had to go to court several times to try to keep it. It was such a stressful event. I cried a many days and nights, because I have lived in the house for 19 years, raised my children there, and was almost through paying for it. But do you think they tried to work anything out with me NO!! They just wanted the house, no matter what, but God….! Do you think they cared about my sleepless nights, my sore eyes caused by crying, my ulcers, my high blood pressure, NO! NO! and NO!!! No compassion, no understanding, no sympathy, no nothing, but repeated sale dates, and lying home preservationists specialist, and I am still going through it with them. Every papers I sent them was never received they say, so I sent papers about 50 times for the same things. See I often say : it’s me today, but it could be you tomorrow!  Where was I going to go, no money, no help, no nothing? Some of the people I tried to talk to about it didn’t care oh well it wasn’t them. The people at Wells Fargo seemed to demonstrate no interest what so ever. But God!!!! The lawyer I hired was in it for the money I guess, because I still had to get NACA-The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (“NACA”) to help me keep my home. The trustee was a joke. But God!!! It was like hell… But God… SO who really cares when, you’re in something that too much for you to withstand ….But My Lord, Keeper and Messiah Yeshua… He cared enough for me to see me through and touch somebody’s heart to help me and that was NACA-The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (“NACA”)!!!! I share with you an example of an ordeal in my life, that demonstrates, what happens when a sinner has power to hurt people. People die everyday; because some types of stresses have pushed them to a point in their lives that can be too overwhelming for them. Because PoWEr has been distributed to the wrong people or person. We are all sinful and I am not trying to specifically say Wells Fargo is a bad company, but sometimes the people a company hires have no interest in helping the customer. Their basic intentions are to help themselves. So if say for instance I was hired in public service, to help others, but the goal of helping people had somehow been pushed aside, then why am I there. So in helping myself I have forgotten why I was hired in the first place. But the main thing is when you can’t even complain to a supervisor, because they are there to help themselves also. So who’s helping the customers NOBODY. But if one can only remember that people are human and have needs and feelings.  The company staff should be able to help, in positive way, but their positive ways are a self greed solution, that is beneficial to the company. Somehow you would think they could  find a way to help me, not hurt me.

But I forgive everybody that have  or had something to do with my housing situation. God has forgiven me so I must forgive them. God forgave, so I must forgive. It doesn’t matter how they have treated me unfairly, in my housing situation. God will deal with them individually. But as for me I forgive. I hurt, I  fasted and I forgave.

The key is the word SOMEHOW!!!!  Somehow help them, somehow make it work, somehow get their needs met. But that seems to be a thing of the past! “I think customer service died on the cross with Jesus“. But you see Jesus rose up for us all with all POWER!

HIS POWER IS THE GOOD POWER! Power to do things right. Power to love others. Power to end the suffering. Power to be helpful and not hurtful. Power to be kind. Power to bear another burdens. Power to smile. Power to make wrong things right. Power to bring joy. Power to find a solution. Power to understand. Power to have compassion. Power to overcome. Power to be positive. Power to do.  Power to be unselfish. Power to be brave enough to do the morally right things.  Power to care. Power to have courage. Power to be courteous. Power to become devoted. Power to empathize. Power  to use faith. Power to gain wisdom. Power to trust. Power to know the difference. Power to be strong. Power to be sincere. Power to demonstrate integrity. Power to hope. Power to seek the truth,  and I know you’re getting the idea…

Where is the Christ-Like POWER? Where would you look for Christ – like Power? Answer: Within each of us! It has to be nurtured. It has to be discovered. It has to be used. It has to be demonstrated in our actions. It’s there, but we fight so hard not to use it. It have to be practiced. IT’s there, every one of us was created by The Lord, Yahweh, with it already installed.

HE the Lord Yeshua GAVE IT TO US, BUT WE JUST DON’T USE IT! Why? Because it is so easy not to use it! If we use the Power God gave us , then we have to have to acknowledge Christ our Lord. So we are not going to do that, because it will make us judge other less and love others more. It will make us look up to others and not down on them. It will make us see others through the eyes of Christ our Saviour. See others as Christ sees us.  It will cause us to sin less and strive to live holy and righteous.

“But as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written:
‘Be holy, because I am holy'” I Peter 1:15-16

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect”
Matt. 5:48

“And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure”
I John 3:3

“Whoever claims to live in him MUST walk as Jesus did” I John 2:6

LESSON FOR OCTOBER 14, 1984

(“I like to use old references because they are like rare antiques, real and authentic and they never need to be Biblically updated-God’s Word never changes”  jerald gainous )

Motives for Moral Living

KEY VERSE: “Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others”. —Philippians 2:4

New Century Version -“Do not be interested only in your own life, but be interested in the lives of others”. Philippians 2:4

SELECTED SCRIPTURE: Philippians 2:1-13

ALL mankind should, of course, strive to live blameless, moral lives; but our lesson is specially directed to those who call themselves Christians. The Scriptures throughout present Jehovah God as a righteous, loving God. His entire universe is founded on the principles of righteousness and justice, and whatsoever is out of harmony with these godly principles is out of harmony with the person and character of the great Creator himself. Speaking to his typical people Israel God said, “Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.”—Lev. 19:2

That this admonition applies also to God’s antitypical people of the Gospel Age is confirmed by the Apostle Peter. Addressing his remarks to the church he says, “As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; since it is written, You shall be holy, for I am holy.”—I Pet. 1:14-16, RSV

Surely, we can have nothing but deep, heartfelt love for that Just and Holy One who first of all gave us the incomparable blessing of life itself, and then demonstrated His continued love for sinful mankind by sending His only begotten Son to redeem us from our sins! Surely, a proper realization of such supreme love should rouse within each one who calls himself a child of God the desire and determination to return that love of our Heavenly Father to the best of his ability! And this we can do, the Apostle John points out, by sincerely striving to keep his righteous commandments. “For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments.” If we keep God’s commandments, we have his assurance that we are his children, and may entertain the glorious hope of being with our Lord Jesus in the kingdom!—I John 5:3

And how could anyone who calls himself a Christian—a footstep follower of our Lord Jesus—not have an unsurpassed motive for moral living! How could any who is trusting in the merit of Jesus’ sacrifice not wish to show his love and appreciation for his Master by following to the best of his ability the perfect example of him who was holy, harmless, undefiled, and separate from sinners? How our hearts are touched as our gratitude and love daily increase for that selfless one “who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works”? (Titus 2:13,14) If we truly love him who died for us, if we truly appreciate his love for us, we will daily endeavor to keep his righteous commandments; for Jesus said, “If ye love me, keep my commandments. … If a man love me, he will keep my words; and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” (John 14:15,23) What greater motivation to live a righteous life could one possibly imagine!

And what of our responsibility to our brethren, who are walking daily in the same narrow way of sacrifice and suffering? The Apostle Paul cautioned Timothy, “If any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” Paul here, of course, is speaking of the material needs of the brethren. But an even greater need of the brethren is for spiritual provision. Thus Paul instructed Timothy, “Be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation [conduct], in charity [love], in spirit, in faith, in purity. … Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine [teaching]; … for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.” (I Tim. 4:12,16) Continue in them, Paul says; for this is not the work of a moment, but rather the work of a Christian lifetime. Thus Jesus told his disciples, “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”—John 15:12,13

Long ago the psalmist David asked, “Who shall ascend into the hill [kingdom] of the Lord, or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.”—Ps. 24:3-5

Who could wish—or who could possibly find—a greater motivation for righteous living!

You see a people, who are human like you: all having a natural tendency to sin!

So Is It the PoWE‘r in the sIN, Or Is It The sIN in the PoWE’r? You decide!

WE IN SIN…. But God!!!

Can We Stop the Sin Cycle?

YES!

I knew this very old man once and he never went to a church. Never went at all. And when we would walk to church and pass his house on the way to church, he would always send two dollars to put in the collection plate. I was about 11. I would often wonder why he did not go to church. He would always smile when we walked pass his house on Sunday. He would always tell us to be good in church. But he never went. So the Sunday ritual went on for years. Then one day he was not there, and we asked his sister where was he, she said he was in the hospital. So every Sunday kept rolling along. Then he died, but before he died we saw him on his porch 2 mores times and he said, I have pleaded with Jesus to let my soul enter heaven, I have lived a good life and now since I am on my death-bed. I see my mistakes. I asked him what mistakes and this is what he said. “I have done everything I wanted to do in life, but I never gave God a second thought. I have had everything in life, and I never gave God the credit. I have went everywhere in life I wanted to go, and I never took God with me. I have eaten all kinds of food, and I never said grace, or asked Jesus to bless it. I have been knocked down to my knees and I never said a prayer. I use to go to the clubs in my day, but never to church. I have lifted my head to look up towards the sky and never acknowledged the creator. I have given things away but never to the Lord. I gave money away, but never to the Lord. So now I am at His mercy. I didn’t see my mistakes then, but believe me I see them now!  So, children when you go to church next Sunday, ask God for me, to give me something. We said what, give you what and he said, ask Him to give me life”.  Now as I looked back, I guess he must have meant eternal life.

Words that may help you decide your fate:

Condemn/Condemnation – God’s judicial pronouncement of sinful humanity’s guilt before Him. It is a declaration of our depravity and the punishment we deserve for it. Condemnation is the opposite of justified. When we give God control over lives then we will no longer be condemned.

Flesh – Flesh doesn’t refer to our physical bodies. It refers to our orientation and identity before God saved us. We are unbelievers, controlled and enslaved by sin, rejecters of God, a people who have preferred sin over righteousness. When we allow the flesh to have control over us it will rule! Whenever we allow God to change us then the flesh cannot control us anymore. But that’s a very hard task for us on our own, so that’s why we have to plead to Yeshua to help us. After you decide that you don’t like living a sin filled life, and want to change. There is a way out.

Gospel –means “the joyous proclamation of God’s redemptive activity carried out through Yeshua the Christ, on our behalf because we are enslaved by sin. When we read the Holy Bible and believe its words and actions, and if we take it to heart, believe that Yeshua the Christ died on the Cross for us, paying the penalty for our sins and for allowing us to be forgiven. Then we must believe that He was raised with victory from the place where he was buried, and lives within us today, and lives for us today. Then you are living the good news (the Gospel) of Yeshua the Christ. If you would like to know more about the “Good News” read the Holy Bible. The New Testaments covers the truth of the good news, which is usually called “The Good News”. But, a lot of us will be like the old man. Sin is too good to give it up; until we come to the point where we can no longer take part in the sin process. Or in other words, live to lie on the death-bed. OR maybe, if we die suddenly never having the chance to lie upon the deathbed then what?

GraceFavor which is only granted to the believer of CHRIST. If you ever people talking about “we saved by grace” it means that salvation comes to us, not by our ability or our own might. It comes to us because Yeshua decided to give it to us. How? By us, living up to His standards. Not our own standards, but by the standards God gave to us to follow in the Bible. Instead of receiving the judgment we deserve, by spinning our eternity in Hell, Yeshua decided to forgive us and let us start over again; never having to be reminded of our sinful lives we had lived. Grace has given us a second or third chance, to get it right. To develop that right spirit within us.

Justify/Justification – Lord Yeshua declares that if we sinners believe in Yeshua Christ, and is righteous because of Christ Yeshua. To be pardoned from punishment for sin and declared guiltless. A person is justified by the Savior’s grace through faith in him. This faith is shown by repentance and obedience to the laws and ordinances of the gospel. Jesus Christ’s atonement enables people to repent and be justified or pardoned from punishment they otherwise would receive.

Law – The Law defines sin and righteousness and bears witness to the righteousness of God in Christ. The Law was given to result in life. The Law is spiritual, holy, righteous and good. It comes as no surprise that sinners have no love for law, especially the Law of God. All men are born sinners, dead in their trespasses and sins. They hate God and His  Son and His Word. The natural man cannot understand it and seeks actively to oppose and overthrow it. Yet unbelievers’ disdain for the Law of God is not surprising. What is distressing is the number of Christians who disdain the Law of God. The Law of God is seen by some Christians as something evil, something of which we would do well to get rid of.

Propitiation – The word propitiation carries the basic idea of appeasement, or satisfaction, specifically towards God. Propitiation is a two-part act that involves appeasing the wrath of an offended person and being reconciled to him 1 John 2:2  He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son Yeshua, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Righteousness – Yeshua Christ is our righteousness.  We do not and cannot obtain a right relationship with Yeshua in our own righteousness because our self-righteousness is as filthy rags.  We are guilty sinners in the need of a perfect righteousness and being in Right Standing with God through Christ Yeshua.  A person can be defined as righteousness if they have God’s character as all righteousness comes and is given from God. God is the ultimate authority of what is right and wrong. He has revealed his righteousness through his commandments, his prophets, and through Yeshua Christ. From a Christian perspective, righteousness is defined as being in right standing with God because of Christ Yeshua‘s death on the cross. Without Christ Yeshua,  no person can be in right standing with God. Righteous is not of works.

Salvation – if Yeshua is holy and righteous and I am a sinner and Yeshua  hates sinners and sends them to hell forever, then I’m doomed. While it is true that Yeshuais holy and cannot overlook sin, the Bible tells us that Yeshua has determined to save a people from the guilt and penalty of sin. Because of Yeshua’s moral, holy character He had to choose a method of saving men which honored His law; which did not overlook sin but rather paid the penalty for it in full. The apostle Paul put it this way, Yeshua’s method of salvation had to prove “His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus” (Rom. 3:36). This teaching is what separates Christianity from all other religious faiths. With Islam and modern Judaism men say they are sorry, turn over a new leaf and then Yeshua overlooks their sins. In these systems the guilt of sin and the liability of punishment that all sin deserves is not really dealt with but simply arbitrarily set aside. The god of Islam and modern Judaism is most certainly not the God of the Bible. In our previous section we demonstrated that because of who Yeshua is, He cannot overlook sin or just forget about it. Sin must be paid for in full. Therefore, there are only two alternatives for men. They can either pay for their own sins by going to hell and suffering for their crimes against YESHUA  or they can trust in a substitute who pays for their sins by suffering and dying in their place. It is Christ Yeshua and Christ alone who meets all of our needs because only He eliminates the guilt and penalty of sin, satisfies God’s wrath and reconciles a holy God with men. “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sin” (Eph. 1:7). Jesus has “made peace through the blood of the cross.”

I have observed one thing about us as humans, we live as if there is no tomorrow. Some live as if they will never leave this place. Some live as if they believe nothing about the Holy Bible, and some of us live as if, or when we die, that’s it! But I know that somebody has been lied too. There will always be a place waiting for us after we die. After we take our last breath on earth, we have another life we are going to live, in Heaven or in Hell!

Some people  make provisions for tomorrow and some don’t. Some of us know that this is not our home we’re just passing through. Some think this will be their home forever. So they store up material treasures. Some store up nothing. Some leave behind a good legacy. Some leave behind a legacy of destruction. Some of us will be proud of the legacies we left behind, for others and some won’t. Some of us will go to Heaven and some won’t. It is Yeshua’s desire that we all go. But we all know that’s not going to happen. Not at all. Why? There are only a few humans who are sincere Christians. A few that believe  Lord Yeshua. We play with  Lord Yeshua like we play with a toy. Put Him in the corner for months and years, or until we remember or have been reminded that we put the toy up in the closet somewhere. He’s a real being! That can decide our fate. He will also decide where we will spend eternity!

There is so much action going on, and does not include Lord Yeshua, not even in the churches. There is so much going on in our lives that we put Lord Yeshua aside until we find the time to communicate with Him. Some of us never find the time to communicate with Him because we put ourselves before Him. We’ve been WARNED! If we say we haven’t then we lie and the truth is not in us, nowhere to be found.

We’ve been WARNED!

 You say warned about what?

About us Sinning and Playing with the Lord of Heaven- Yeshua!

The Holy  Bible Warns us EVERYDAY if you pick it up and read it!!

EXAMPLE: We are like hard-headed kids! We won’t get right in the head or act right until we see our parents pick up a belt. Then we cry and apologize. But with some parents that will not work because we have done wrong it so much. Same with Yeshua, He has fore- warned us, but we’re still not listening, so when we suffer and hurt, then we call on Him to stop the pain. He’s not listening because He already told us!

But I’ll tell you one thing; our Sovereign Lord Yeshua, does forgive, but don’t temp Him, because we are the ones who have a lot to lose!
