Judas Iscariot. Betrayer

April 13, 2022

He walked with Jesus. He saw the miracles. He was trusted enough to handle the money. Others did not see him as evil. JUDAS. A name that even today we think of betrayal. Greed, for 30 pieces of silver he was willing to betray the ONE who loved him.

We wonder how he could do such a horrible thing and yet, do we betray Jesus with our attitude, our indifference or our sin? When Jesus told the disciples that one would betray Him, each one asked, “Is it I?”

Let us ask ourselves, do I betray my Savior, Jesus, in any way? If so let us ask His forgiveness had love Him as He loved us.

Matthew 26:25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.

God Forgives Sin

January 31, 2022

Intimacy with God requires a repentant heart. In His love, God says when we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to cleanse us. That cleansing restores our fellowship with Him.

God hates sin because He is Holy and Righteous. Sin is anything we have done that God has commanded us not to do.

All have sinned and come short. You can watch a small child only months old and already they are sinners. Selfishness and disobedience. They will be playing and grab a toy from another child, hit or bite.

Jesus paid the penalty for all our sins if we by faith ask His forgiveness, repent of our sin and put our trust in Him.

Fear Not!

October 6, 2021

In this troubled world, there is much fear. Fear of all kinds. Sickness, financial, relationships and a whole lot more.

As Christians the Bible tells us many times to fear not. God has everything under His control.

A very spiritual man told me “Worry is a sin.” How true. When we worry about our situation it is a total lack of trust in God and His promises to us.

Do the circumstances change? NO! But God promises that He is with us and that all things work together for our good.

Right now make a decision to put your trust in God. Confess your sin and ask forgiveness for your lack of faith and give all your worries to Him.

What Does Your Pastor Preach?

October 3, 2021

Does your Pastor preach what you want to hear, or does he tell you something that may make you a little angry because of your sin. Pray he has boldness to speak the truth.

We desperately need revival. It starts with you and me. Pray for the men in the pulpit who have the influence to start revival. Pray also, that if there are false ministers in your church that God will remove them or that you will see and move where the Holy Spirit leads you.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 – For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Have You Received God’s Gift?

It’s Not What We Do, It’s What He’s Done

September 4, 2021

We think what we do will get us to Heaven, but it’s not what we do, it’s what Jesus did when he died on the cross. He paid the price for ALL our sin.

Nothing we do, all our “good” work will never be enough to have our sin forgiven.

We owe everything to Him. When we work doing something for Him, it is out of gratitude and our love for Jesus. It does not count to get us to Heaven. Only trusting in Jesus alone will give us eternal life.

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

What Can Wash Away My Sin?

1 John 1:7 – But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Are You 100% Sure You Will Go To Heaven?

July 9, 2020

You can be 100% sure you are going to heaven.

1) Admit you have sinned. Romans 3:23

2) Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 10:9

3) Call upon the Lord. Romans 10:13

Pray: Lord Jesus, I admit I am a sinner, I believe you died on the cross for forgiveness of my sins. I ask that you forgive my sins, come into my heart and make my life new. I receive you as my Savior. Thank you, Jesus. Amen

One Man’s Action

June 3, 2020

One policeman’s action has caused chaos in the USA right now. Violence, destruction, burning, looting. SIN.

One man’s action, Adam. His disobedience to God caused all mankind to be born in sin.

One man’s action, Jesus. Came into the world to die on the cross for the forgiveness of sin.

One man’s action. As Christians we are commanded to love one another and resist sin.

One man’s action. If you have never asked Jesus to forgive you and invite Him to be your Savior or will you continue in sin?

Each man, woman and child has a choice. What will your action be?

Romans 5:15
But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
