Welcome To Fruit Of The Spirit Of God

Invitation




Will You Accept the Lord's Invitation??



Still


Psalm 18:2, NIV: "The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold."

You still feel something is missing. You still wonder what it is. You still try to find God's answers. You still question whether the answers are His. You still put your best foot forward. You still feel inept in your tries. You still long for something far greater. You still hope God hears all your cries. And somewhere in the midst of questioning, and confusion in all that is, Truth quietly whispers. "I'm still here," the voice says. In your heart of hearts you have no doubt that He is. He's still present no matter how quiet. Still faithful no matter the trial. Still longing to help you get through it. Still walking with you, every mile. He's still beside you in the still quiet moments. Still comforting you in His arms. Still cherishing you as His loved one. Still keeping you safe from what harms. "I'm still here," He says, "So be still." Embrace His peace and take heart. And know no matter whatever may be--God's still with you throughout every part.

Let Him Into Your Heart And Your Life Today??
Without Jesus...We Have Nothing At All!!!








Lukewarm Christians: JUDGEMENT DAY- ARE YOU READY????

THIS IS THE FATE OF FALSE CONVERTS WHO COME TO THE EDGE OF SAVING FAITH - THEY EVENTUALLY REJECT OR WALK AWAY FROM THE TRUTH. A LUKEWARM PROFESSING CHRISTIAN IS AN UNSAVED PERSON WHO THINKS THEY ARE SAVED.

Salvation is a Choice...

...Not a Demand!

You can either choose Jesus or His unworthy opponent.

Everyone wants the freedom to choose In America, we are blessed to have freedom of choice. That is what is drilled into our heads daily; "you have the right to this, you have a right to that, you have a right to choose!" We can choose who we vote for; the kind of car we drive, where we live, what we eat, who we will marry. We can choose what kind of education we want; we can choose to be a doctor or a pauper, a leader or a follower. When it comes to religious matters, we can choose this god or that god, or The God. We can choose to have faith, or be an atheist. We can choose to follow one religious system or the other. It is all up to us. Some of us take these choices, of 'choosing', more serious than others, but even [that] is a choice.

When we look at life today, we see wars and rumors of wars, famines, greed, corruption, murder and lies and a life filled with struggle. However, when you read the first two chapters of the Bible, along with the last two chapters in the Bible, we find that all of these problems were non-existent. When God created the universe that we know today, He created life in a perfect environment, and He created man to fellowship with Him forever. In those four chapters we get a very short, but expansive glimpse at what perfect peace looks like. So what happened? If you continue to read chapter three of the first book of the Creation (Genesis), you will find that the first man, Adam, broke the only instruction that God placed upon him, and that single instruction was to not eat the fruit of a certain tree because of the dire consequences. The arch enemy of both God and man, satan , who is a fallen angel, came and deceived Adam and Eve into believing that God’s instructions could be taken lightly, and that they had the freedom to choose, or make their own decisions. As you continue to read the Book of

Genesis, you find that that one sin, or, act of disobedience, corrupted the whole bloodline of all people born of Adam and Eve with death and separation from God the Creator. And we clearly see the corruption and sinfulness and Godlessness that exists in the world today. As a matter of fact, the Bible goes on to tell us that that one act of disobedience corrupted all of creation. Now my first question after reading this was, "How could one act of sin affect all of creation?” Let me try to illustrate how one sin can have such far reaching consequences.

I like cookie dough. My husband makes the best cookie dough. He mixes oatmeal, raisins, chocolate chips and the other ingredients required to make the perfect cookie. Then he allows me to have a couple of spoons full prior to baking. What a treat. In a sense, my husband has ‘created’ the perfect bowl of cookie dough, but only because he followed the instructions of mixing the right ingredients together. Now let’s say that some evil person slipped in uninvited and poured a cup of tasteless and odorless acid into the mix. The mix would still look good on the surface, but we all know how corrosive and destructive acid can be to that perfect creation of cookie dough. God, in the beginning, created the perfect mix of all that we know that is creation. No sin, no sickness, no sorrow. And along came the uninvited destroyer and introduced the acid of disobedience into creation, and without an antidote to the corrosive action of the sin of disobedience, we have no hope but death and eternal separation from God.

So where do we get this antidote? Throughout this instruction book the Bible, the Author, God, has declared that we can once again experience this perfect peace if we would only follow His instructions and be cleansed from the corrosive corruption of sin. "But”, you ask, "Where is the antidote?” To be able to answer this question, we need to regress to the cookie dough for just a minute. If you were to ingest a spoonful of that cookie dough, the acid would first start corrupting the inside, the stomach, the inner organs, and eventually start manifesting its self on the outside. We would start seeing abnormalities in behavior. We all have a vivid imagination to see this so I won’t go any farther here except to say that that is an exact picture of how sin works in our life, and also an exact picture of how this acid of sin must be removed from our life. Sin has corrupted the heart and soul of men, and we need an antidote that will change the heart and soul of men. It is no easy fix, however. It is much more than a shot in the arm. It is much

more than a song and a prayer that is often taught today. It is becoming a whole new creation from the inside out, but, it is not hard, if we follow the instruction book. The antidote to fix this problem was expensive. The cost of this antidote was so great that no man could pay the cost, it took God to give His all so that we could be set free from the bondage and corruption of sin.

In the Book of John, chapter three, we find that God so loved His creation, man, that He sent His only Son to become a man, a man without any sin or corruption in him, to die and shed His blood which is the only antidote that can cleanse us from the inside out. That if we would recognize our sinful ways and see our need for a Savior, and believe on Him (Jesus Christ), that we would not perish in our sins, but that He would give us eternal Life . And even more than that, that as we confess our sins and learn to be obedient to His instructions, that He would be faithful and just to forgive us of all of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness . Now that is what I want to talk to you about, a new eternal life in Christ Jesus, a life of meaning and rewards. And if you will listen and follow with us here we will explore this wonderful renewed relationship with God as I have talked about If you don’t know Him today, call on His Name, He will save you, and we will explore this new life together.

God gave us His Word to give us hope, direction and an absolute foundation for making all decisions that pertain to daily life and family matters. When we deviate from His instructions, life starts to unravel and become confused. The nature of man is to be in control of his life. The nature of Satan is to promote our sinful nature and to continually deceive us through confusion as he did with Eve at the very first act of sin, and as he tried to confuse Jesus in the garden with his devious questioning techniques. Our goal here is to present the gospel and doctrine of Jesus Christ by adhering to the Word so that we build our foundation in Christ on solid rock. There is only one way to overcome this world, and that is through the whole gospel of Jesus Christ and by keeping the Living Word of Christ intact.
We must believe that God's Word is Truth and that He meant what He said and that He says what He means.

If you follow the events and changes taking place in Israel, and Jewish communities around the world, you will notice a softening of the hearts of the Jews towards the Gospel of Jesus Christ as presented in Isaiah chapter 53. This will become more and more evident as the world powers abandon Israel as a Nation, and they are forced to, once again recognize God as their Helper and Jesus Christ as the Messiah. At the same time, many in the Church are waning in apathy thinking all is OK. In God’s Grace, He has given to us approximately one third of the prophecies in the Bible to warn us about the perilous times and deceitfulness of the world’s Anti-Christ systems that will try every
means possible to cause our love for God to grow cold. Jesus addressed this directly in Matthew 24:11-12Matthew 24:11-12 "And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.” (Mat 24:11-13Mat 24:11-13 ) This warning from Jesus is directed to both the believers in the Church and to the Nation of Israel. It is more than just a general warning to the world. The world’s Anti-Christ system will wage war on two fronts; 1) against the Church; to keep Christians on the defense and to wear them down to apathy and complacency in order to prevent them from seeking after God, and 2) against the Jews worldwide, to keep them from turning back to God and their Messiah.



Important Warning to the Church

This should cause all Christians to be at attention, drinking in the Word of God so that we will have our lamps full of the oil of the Holy Spirit when the Bridegroom appears. In Matthew chapter 24, and in Luke chapter 21, Jesus gave the Church a very profound warning, and clear instructions on how to prepare for His return during this transition of power from the Church to the Nation of Israel. Jesus started by saying "Take heed that you do not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying ‘I am He,’ Do not go after them.” {Luke 21:8Luke 21:8 } These deceptions from false teachers will be very subtle, and will appear as truth, but Jesus says to ‘watch out!’ It must be noted that 98% truth is not Truth. God’s Truth is 100% accurate. Those who take their salvation for granted will be deceived by false teachers. This warning is a reference to God’s warning in Jeremiah 23:17Jeremiah 23:17 ; "They keep saying to those who despise [disobey / take for granted] My word, 'Don't worry! The LORD says you will have peace!' And to those who stubbornly follow their own desires, they say, 'No harm will come your way!' ” This is happening today as some church leaders are trying to draw attention to the teachings of men and denominational doctrines in an effort to override to Bible doctrine. Jesus said, "In vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.” {Mark 7.7Mark 7.7 } Paul carried this thought farther when he wrote, "…that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting” {Eph. 4:14Eph. 4:14 }. Paul said this in reference to the importance that all believers must be involved in the sanctification process of mature spiritual growth so that we can stand against the wiles of Satan.

Jesus continues this warning to all believers so that we will see how important it is to [ love God ] with all of our heart, mind, soul and body, and to be obedient to all of His instructions {Mat. 28:20Mat. 28:20 }. Our love for God and our obedience is what will give us the strength to stand as these last days in which we live becomes more agitated against the people of God, first the Jew, then the Church. To silence the voice of God and His people (the Jew and the Christian) has become the mantra of Islam, the UN and governments around the world.

"Watch out! Don't let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don't let that day catch you unaware, like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth. Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man." (Luke 21:34-36Luke 21:34-36 )

If you are a believer in Jesus Christ today, please don’t take your salvation for granted and neglect your spiritual growth in the faith, as many will teach you to do. Paul said to the church in Thessalonica that it is the ‘will of God, your sanctification” and that if you reject this as being not important, you are rejecting God {1 Thess. 4:7-81 Thess. 4:7-8 }. The author of the letter to the Hebrews added; "Therefore we must give all the more earnest attention to the things we have heard, lest we drift away” and "how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation..?” {Hebrews 2:1-3Hebrews 2:1-3 }

For this reason, since the day we heard about this, we have not stopped praying for you and asking that you may be filled with the full knowledge of God's will with respect to all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you might live in a manner worthy of the Lord and be fully pleasing to him as you bear fruit while doing all kinds of good things and growing in the full knowledge of God. You are being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might, so that you might patiently endure everything with joy and might thank the Father, who has enabled us to share in the saints' inheritance in the light. God has rescued us from the power of darkness and has brought us into the kingdom of the Son whom he loves, through whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.


We care about you and we don't want you looking like this just because you didn't make the choice to choose Jesus



God bless you as you grow in, and take a stand for Jesus Christ.
