Now that you have accepted the gift of salvation now what? In all honesty, LIFE begins a new. The past is the past no matter what you have done and the journey is ahead of you. What journey are you talking about? Your WALK with Christ!
Now is the time for you to search out perhaps a Church that follows Biblically principles and find a Bible that you like because you will be spending a lot of time in it. This is hard but not as hard as it will be to follow Christ! Learn and read all you can! Ask questions because there are many that you will have and seek fellow believers! These are just stepping-stones in your journey!
You may come across this site and you see all this talk about a God or Savior and wonder why this group of people are so excited about this person. Or you want to follow this man but are not quite sure how to do it.
Let me tell you a little story….I went to church when I was little and I didn’t really know who God was. This was a place my parents wanted me to go too and we all want to please our parents. I didn’t come to know him without help. So now is the time for me to help others know who he is and then make the choice on your own to follow him.
A friend gave me a book called, “Left Behind” and the title tells it all, but I wanted to know what it really meant so I read it and never look back. When I say I never looked back I mean I excepted the gift that God had for me. You say how do I know what that gift is? I have so many questions? What happens after I do all this?
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
When I accepted the gift I was on my bed and I prayed this prayer:
I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don’t please you. I have lived my life for myself. I am sorry and I repent. I ask you to forgiveme. I believe that you died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now and ask you to take control of my life, I give it to you. Help me to live every day in a way that pleases you. I love you, Lord, and I thank you that I will spend all eternity with you.
One of the things in the Bible that has always set my heart on fire are the teachings of John The Baptist! When he cried out telling us to prepare for the lord. The election is over and so again the lord is asking his people to prepare the way.
Be in your bibles daily reading the word of the lord and do not let any false prophets our things of this world get in the way of reading the word of God! The bible contains instruction for all Gods children. It tells us how to get there, how to live in the world until the lords returns.
Prepare your hearts and see that you are not deceived for many will come in my name. During this time the devil will seek to destroy and claim all of God’s people.
8 And He said: “Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time has drawn near.’ Therefore[a] do not go after them
New King James Version (NKJV)
33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
New King James Version (NKJV)
The Comfort of Christ’s Coming
13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.[a]
15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Please get out tomorrow and vote. Let the lord be the master of your heart and let him guide your path. Pray for our nation and remember what ever the outcome God is still in control!!
We as Christians believe in the power of prayer and God loves to see his church pray for each other. Warrior we have a sister in need. My sister! Not just a Christian sister, but blood sister! Please lift Denise up in prayer all over the world until she gets a lung transplant. Please keep this prayer going until the lord answers this prayer.
Wrestling with God
22 And he arose that night and took his two wives, his two female servants, and his eleven sons, and crossed over the ford of Jabbok. 23 He took them, sent them over the brook, and sent over what he had. 24 Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. 25 Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob’s hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him. 26 And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.”
But he said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!”
27 So He said to him, “What is your name?”
He said, “Jacob.”
28 And He said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel;[a] for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed.”
29 Then Jacob asked, saying, “Tell me Your name, I pray.”
And He said, “Why is it that you ask about My name?” And He blessed him there.
30 So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel:[b] “For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” 31 Just as he crossed over Penuel[c] the sun rose on him, and he limped on his hip.
