Storm Over Washington

DON’T MESS WITH GOD’S REAL ESTATE

“For the day of the LORD draws near on all the nations. As you have done, it will be done to you. Your dealings will return on your own head” (Obadiah 1: 15 NASB).

It’s snowing in Washington as President Obama meets with Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House.    As I was thinking about this and John Kerry’s peace plan, I opened the Bible randomly and my eyes fell on Psalm 83.

O God, do not remain quiet; Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.  For, behold, Thine enemies make an uproar; And those who hate Thee have exalted themselves.  They make shrewd plans and conspire together against Thy treasured ones.  They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more.”  For they gave conspired together with one mind; Against Thee do they make a covenant: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assyria also has joined with them; They have become a…

Dream: A Heavenly Portal

Michael Gaither sharing Jesus Christ:

Sheryl, this is a very good post as usual and I would like to share it, with some related thoughts on the possibility of portals. Is it possible the Tower of Babel was being built at a location of a portal? From the verses below, pay close attention to the Words and if was not possible, why didn’t God just let them waste their time? Genesis 11:5-8 “And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded . 6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.”

In verse 6 the Lord said, “and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” In verse 7 the Lord said, “let us go down.” I take it the Lord took some Angels with Him.

The Tower of Babel

Genesis 11:1-9 (KJV) “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.”

Pink, blue, and yellow.  Pink, blue, and yellow.  Pink, blue, and yellow.  (Or was it pink, green, and yellow?)  Like a strand of DNA, the pastel squares formed a spiral.  I was dreaming of a heavenly portal that stretched from heaven to earth. The spiral began somewhere deep in space, and I was looking through it.

Does a heavenly portal sound absurd?  Jacob didn’t think so.

And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.  And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.  And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set…

Steps to Salvation

Steps to Salvation and Living the Life of Being Reborn

Close up of an 17th-century depiction of the 2...

Salvation, three conditions to having our sins forgiven—repentance, confession, and restitution. The results of that original sin by Adam and Eve have been passed along to every succeeding generation, ours included. The inability to meet God’s standard is a part of the carnal nature that has marked every member of the human family since the fall of our first parents. mark it down as the first giant step on the way from earth to heaven: we must have our sins forgiven. Jesus, says: “I will assume your debt, suffer death in your place, and put it all to the credit of your personal account.” That offer stands behind all three of the steps we are considering in the salvation experience. It constitutes the basis of our receiving forgiveness for our sins. Paul describes it very succinctly in these words: “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). Jesus, says: “I will assume your debt, suffer death in your place, and put it all to the credit of your personal account.” That offer stands behind all three of the steps we are considering in the salvation experience. It constitutes the basis of our receiving forgiveness for our sins.

Repentance

Repentance literally means to feel a godly sorrow for the wrongs we have committed. Such genuine sorrow is only possible when we fully recognize that our only hope rests in the death of Jesus on the cross in our place. We must clearly distinguish between a worldly sorrow and a genuine godly sorrow. That sorrow is repentance. Those who feel sorrow for the pain their sins caused Jesus to suffer, and by God’s grace they determine to turn away from everything displeasing to Him.

Confess

The second condition of forgiveness is called Confession. John wrote, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). That certainly sounds simple enough. Yet it is on this point that most people stumble and lose their way. The question most commonly asked is this: How do I know I have been forgiven? There is only one correct answer to that question. We know we are forgiven because God said we would be.God’s Word cannot ever fail. Whatever it says will take place. You may not feel forgiven when you ask for it, but the promise is that you are forgiven. So forget about feeling. Believe that it’s done because God said it would be. Thank Him for it and then act like it’s done, because it is. Your faith makes it a fact. What is the real secret behind the confession process? We do not inform God about anything He doesn’t know already. Our confession does not change Him either; it changes us. What will happen immediately following your confession? You will feel as though a great weight has rolled off your shoulders. Tremendous relief will flood your soul.

Restitution

The third condition to having our sins forgiven is Restitution. This simply means that we make every effort to correct the things we have done wrong. It is never possible to reach into the past and rectify every wrong, every lie, and every dishonest act. In the first place, we can’t even remember all the times we were guilty of those things. Nevertheless, the Spirit probes our consciences and reminds us of the matters that can be made right. Keep in mind, all true righteousness originates with God and resides in us only as long as Christ abides in us through faith.

The New Birth – Reborn

Jesus referred to this dramatic experience as being “born of the Spirit.” The necessity of it was revealed in the urgent words of the Master to Nicodemus, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). Paul described it in these words. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). God’s Holy Spirit enters the life to replace the surrendered fleshly things with the exact opposite. It is this progressive work of conquering self and constantly submitting the will to Christ which leads us to the third giant step on our heavenly pilgrimage. We call it sanctification. It simply means loving obedience to all of God’s revealed will. The word “loving” distinguishes those acts of obedience from the legalistic forced conformity of those who might be trying to earn salvation by mere law keeping. Complying with God’s law in order to fulfill a legal requirement for salvation is the head approach, but true heart obedience is the spontaneous outflow of a personal love relationship with Christ. When we talk about sanctification here, we are referring solely to the heart approach.

There has been much debate over the way justification and sanctification relate to each other, so let’s clarify it with a few simple observations. We need both of these experiences in order to be ready for heaven. Justification imputes the perfect victory of Jesus to cover our past sins, but sanctification imparts the victorious power of Jesus to
preserve us from committing further sin. We can’t have one without the other. Anyone who exercises true faith is justified. All who are truly justified are converted, or turned into a new creation; and all who have experienced the new birth will walk in obedience out of love. This biblical principle requires that the believer receive the gift of justification before sanctified obedience is possible. Then the conformity to the law is recognized as the result of the born-again connection with the Saviour.

Sin is defined in the Bible as transgression of the law. This means there will be no thieves, murderers, adulterers, etc. in heaven. Dedicate your life to Jesus Christ today by taking these three big steps, Ask for your Sins to be Forgiven, confess your sins publicly accepting your New Birth, and and obey God’s Commandments resulting in the Obedience to God following His Will.

What Should We Focus On

By Michael Gaither

What Should We Focus On, Worldly Treasures or Jesus ChristDedicated 2 Jesus Christ

Matthew 6:19-24 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. 2 Peter 3:11-18 Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless, and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness, but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

Matthew 6:34 So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Dedicated 2 Jesus - Amen..
