FOR THE SOULS OF MEN!!!
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
War W[R]ages ONWARD -
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
All must repent.
2 Peter 2 4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell,
and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person,
Do you offer men that are dying all around you every second
of every day and slipping into hell?
Do you offer them:
to COME TO CHURCH.
Do you offer them:
to BE THE CHURCH.
Time waits for none.
Time is stealing the souls of men.
GIVE THEM THE KEYS!
Let them drive... when they are ready.
GIVE THEM the scriptures that reveal soul salvation and the
understanding that its not by our works lest any man should
boast but it’s a free gift of grace of God.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Salvation is obtainable right where they are today meaning
no special precise location necessary nor have a specific
precise cluster of words to present to the Lord Jesus* Christ... it’s
a personal heart confessing of sin and asking Jesus* to forgive and enter
in as Lord and Savior... Hallelujah.
Its all the work of Jesus through the power of third member of the Holy Trinity the Holy Spirit.
Its not at all by any works or any things that we have done.... our good works are like filthy rags to God.
None of us can work our way to heaven if we could clean and do good as a means and way of obtaining heaven as our eternal home then Jesus* would have died in vain.
Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;
and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Here we can know our good works after salvation are counted.....as righteousness in Salvation.
So before salvation our work is filthy rags and after salvation its counted.
1 Corinthians 3: 13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
Too many are falling by the wayside.
Time is short and wasted.
Yet...Eternal life takes but a moment to obtain:
Usually in a day people are busy and mentally distracted.. busy.
YES... they know they are searching for something and in need of
something to fill the void in their being, but they are clueless... as to what
that really truly is... and are in search of everything and anything
____ in order to fill the void.
Needless to say, it will never be filled.
Nothing will ever take the place of where the Holy Spirit was created to be: in man.
Nothing but the blood of Jesus* will usher in that fulfillment on this side of the cross.
A desire to fill the void in their being where the Holy Spirit is suppose to be...
1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you,
which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
SEE IF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT INSIDE -THEN YOUR HOLLOW
and running on empty filled with everything but ... what you truly need in order to feel whole.
QUESTION: HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE TO TALK TO ANY INDIVIDUAL
AT ANY GIVEN TIME ABOUT SOUL SALVATION? Usually not much: people are busy, in a hurry.
Realize satan hits hard and fast ... Likewise Christian you gotta hit wise and leave an impact... a lasting impression.
This would make a great t-shirt if its not already:
Do YOU want to
BE THE CHURCH?
This makes men think and ponder the deeper meaning of be the church
.....and all things work together for those that love the Lord.
WHAT SIN IS
key- The Ten Commandments tell us what is sin. [Exodus 20]
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kill.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.
key- If we broke one of The Ten Commandments we broke all...
... no one can keep them
James 2 :10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of
breaking all of it. 11 For he who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.”
If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.
key- WE ARE ALL SINNERS:
Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
key- WE MUST BE BORN AGAIN OF FIRE AND HOLY SPIRIT.
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
... Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
but he that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear:
he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire:
key* God provided redemption from sin through the blood sacrifice of His only begotten son Jesus*
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
... that whoever believes in him.shall not perish but have eternal life.
key We need to confess out loud to God in prayer admit we are sinners in need of forgiveness ..profess Jesus as your Lord and Savior and claim your salvation through Jesus*
Romans 10:9 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. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
We are under fallen Adam and condemned to hell..
Hence men everywhere are all in need of a Savior ...
Jesus* Christ.. is the only available redemption of sin to man.
Believing in Heaven and Hell and realizing the depths
of what Jesus* suffered to save men...through His valuable saving grace...
Jesus* paid all at the cross for us, now its up to us to take a step of faith to Him;
admit we are sinners, repent asking forgiveness of our sins and claim Jesus*
as our Lord and Savior... finally; believe we have been saved for the asking of
and then give thanks and Praise to Jesus Christ for all He has done.. Amen
...Praise the Father Son and Holy Ghost for all they have done are doing
and will do amen..
Saved you are no longer your own but a blood bought Christian a follower of
the Son of True Living God .. Jesus* Christ the Savior of whosoever... Hallelujah!
Praise to Jesus for the free gift of Salvation... Its free for the asking,...
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE ANYPLACE OR ANYWHERE SPECIAL-K
... YOU CAN BE SAVED WHERE EVER YOU ARE NOW..
K WHEN? YOU ARE READY
K WHEN? YOUR HEART IS STIRRED
K WHEN? YOUR MIND AND HEART AGREE THAT JESUS* IS WHO YOU WANT...
K THEN IN FAITH BELIEVING, YOU BRING YOURSELF TO JESUS* HUMBLE IN HEART AND ASK.
Jesus is the reader of hearts....
He knows when your heart is sincere to match your words...
He will know and you will be saved.
A mental ascent would leave us where we began; unsaved.
Isaiah 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth,
and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me,
and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: [this is lip service and lacks a heart]
To those that may sputter words of salvation from
a heart that is not desiring Jesus*... when its only a mind,
a thought to do.... and that is called; a mental ascent.... be cautious!
KNOW YOUR OWN HEART AND MIND.... men can fool men... but men don’t fool God
There are no special words to salvation..
come as a child...speak your heart.
God made you .. no one knows you better than Jesus*
Amen and come as you are ...
you cant get clean first then come to get cleaned.
Jesus will cleanse you... only the washing away of your sins in
Jesus shed blood can cleanse us... for there is nothing on earth
that cleanses us like the blood of the lamb,
no soap or tap water will do.
WE NEED TO OFFER WHEN THE TIME PERMITS
.... AS MUCH AS WE CAN... AND IF ITS TIME FOR HARVEST
THEN BRING THEM INTO THE FOLD ... HALLELUJAH!
At least give the keys of life eternal to men on earth
that they can come to the cross when they are ready.
Realize there are those that don’t understand
the term SAVED or BORN-AGAIN and that
they are one in the same.
Born again we are washed in the washing of the water of the word through the blood of the Lamb Jesus*
new creatures in Christ filled with the Holy Spirit...saved from eternal damnation... Hallelujah..
So we then claim we are Saved or Born Again.
Praise Jesus* to be able to make that claim...
Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it
with the washing of water by the word,
Romans 10:9 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.
Matthew 10:28 And fear not them who kill the body,
but are not able to kill the soul:
but rather fear him who is able to destroy
both soul and body in hell.
Jesus* died to save us from hell.
Come to church ...has lost its punch.... as we are experiencing the impact
of the great falling away... we are in the days of it... a good church is
difficult to find ... yet alone strive to find time or desire to the hunt
of one... Serious times for serious measures... Realize Saved men are the church...
Jesus* does not come for bricks and mortar
He comes for men... Saved ones.
Don’t get defensive...
just consider the unsaved are in hell not because they didn't attend church service but because they are unsaved...
see KEY WORD IS UNSAVED.
That’s the weight of the matter and we are the generation of the last days... time is winding down fast...
WHAT KEEPS PEOPLE FROM GOING TO CHURCH?
1] Consider when you invite someone to come to church..the first thing they may ponder is CLOTHING
Um what not to wear hmmm? What to wear? Oh I don’t think I have any thing suitable to wear to church.. I don’t want all those people looking at me with downcast eyes because my clothes are old and unseemly.
IT’S A SAD REALITY MANY SOULS ARE LOST TO HELL BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T HAVE A PROPER WARDROBE IN ORDER TO GAIN A KINGLY ONE VIA A CHURCH NEAR THEM.
2] Transportation or Time. They may not have the means or the time... they may work on Sunday.
They may be tired and don’t feel like it or of poor health. Sure they may have good intentions but it just doesn’t ever seem to work out... and you only get four chances a month to get to Sunday service.
3] They did get to church after striving to make it and sadly there was no sermon that day instead it was a discussion of missions and fund raising needs...the word was not heard therefore the eyes were not opened yet alone poked... and the soul never returned to church. Sadly it happens.
Basically the just of it is time is short... and hell is enlarged to accommodate the numbers of men
falling into her daily.
Isaiah 5:14 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure:
and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.
Its enough to ponder and understand:
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE
AND WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF IT... WHILE BY THE SECOND
AS MEN FALL INTO HELL FIRE AND HAVE NO RECOURSE... THAT’S IT
Don’t let others tell us not to offer salvation
and by all means lets hand over the keys
so men can determine when they are ready
to leave the old man behind.
- Please realize the old man is the old Adamic nature = we were conceived in
and born into sin we are unsaved.
- The new man to be put on is via soul salvation... is Jesus*
Jesus* is the second Adam...Hence saved we are new creatures in Christ.
Born Again no longer the same... Hallelujah*
Men empowered with knowledge can humbly
repent giving themselves to Jesus* anytime, anywhere...Amen
And we can trust that the Holy Spirit will do His part
.. if ... we will do ours first.
One Day at a Time Sweet Jesus*
Also lets remember one day at a time
sadly men are falling into hell.
NONE OF US ARE BORN SAVED.
I'm saved because someone shared
the Gospel of Salvation with me and I knew
I needed to repent of my sins... the spirit of the Lord
convicted my heart... that I was a sinner in need of a Savior.
Thank You Jesus*
Saved we need to recall whose we
are and what we are
as we carry the torch of salvation...
we ought to be more ready
more apt to cease the moment of opportunity
to share valued words of
life eternal when we can.
Don’t let the devil fool you telling you people don’t want
the Light of God the Savior Jesus* Christ to shine upon them...
The truth is people are hungry and looking for something
and if they don’t find Jesus* they will find all the wrong things
this world can and does offer.
Am I saying don’t offer any to come to Church?
No ... but its better to offer one to be the church... its better and
is of true value... one can walk away with A GOLD NUGGET.
Do you see the diff in a man having something of value to take with him...
one of these Sundays; I will try to make it to your Church.
TEST THIS OUT ON YOURSELF:
BE THE CHURCH.
COME TO CHURCH.
One is an obvious invitation and the other has opened
your mind to wonderment... suddenly and open door in the brain...Hallelujah!
COUNTLESS INDIVIDUALS DO NOT KNOW WHAT IT IS TO BE SAVED...
I met a young man at the mall and we talked of end time signs..
of Jesus soon return, of Rapture of the Church and of salvation.
He said; I want to do that and I don’t know how what is it?
A mans testimony of falling into the pit of hell said;
saved... what is it...I need saved... how do I do it.
.. is it a song ..do I say now I lay me down to sleep?
Thankfully he lived to have a second chance and is Saved.
OBVIOUSLY IT’S THE MISSION STATEMENT OF THE SAVED TO CARRY THE OFFER OF
SALVATION* TO OTHERS ... TO DO OUR BEST TO OFFER ANY WORDS OF VALUE WE CAN
IN THE PROVIDED TIME ... AND IT’S THE WORD ITSELF THAT OPENS THE EYES AND EARS
THAT TRANSFORMS THE HEART AND CHANGES THE MIND OF MEN.
2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,
lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God,
should shine unto them.
We pray that the Holy Spirit will lead us in the paths of righteousness in Jesus* name sake and that He will use us, better prepare us and equip us in our ministry in the Lord Jesus* as we are commissioned to carry the light of saving grace that others may see it and come out of the darkness. We pray the Holy Spirit will particularly put people in our paths that the Lord Jesus* is striving to reach today with a word that may be of some edification, some illumination, some blessed, assurance or reaffirmation in understanding God is in control in all things and in all seasons without failure... and that in our weakness... He alone is our strength... Helping us to share His gospels saving grace in Jesus* name... Thank You Jesus* Amen and Amen
BE THE CHURCH KEYS
-The Ten Commandments ..show us what sin is
If we broke one we broke all...
- WE are ALL sinners... in need of a Savior
- John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him.shall not perish but have eternal life.
- WE MUST BE BORN AGAIN OF FIRE AND HOLY SPIRIT.
[no earthly washing of soap and or water will suffice]
- 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
FINALLY SAVED YOU CAN SAY :
1 Corinthians 15: 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory
SAVED YOU ARE THE CHURCH... AND AT THE SOUND OF THE TRUMP OF GOD... YOUR GOING HOME!
Jesus Blessings to you
I pray this has been helpful to you in your ministry
in the Lord Jesus* Christ our Savior.
...And if your not Saved... today is a very good day to get serious and make a decision of your heart .. that you will never regret...
As we are so close to the Trump:
I want to say; see you here, there or in the air!
