From Him for You

Without faith, it is impossible to please Him.
For those who come to God, you must believe that He is and that He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Behold, the Father of faithfulness.
The Lord asked Abraham to sacrifice His own son. Because Abraham put it all in God’s hand, it was accounted upon Him, righteousness.
The great heroes of faith. What do they all have in common?
Did they all get rewards? No.
Thousands were killed, burned at the stake, crucified as our Lord. Did they all suffer? No.
Countless received the greatest miracles imagined as they crossed through the Red Sea, stopped the mouths of lions and walked through the firey furnace.
So what do they all have in common?
They gave it all over. They put their own ways behind them.
They that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength and mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint.
Stand still and wait upon the Lord.
God understands your pain. Your faith is stronger than you think. You will do great things in His name.
So many Christians are dying everyday from war, famine, disease, earthquakes, flooding, tsunami’s, volcano eruptions, cancer and the list goes on. They are going to a better place but at the moment we are not.
PLEASE LISTEN TO ME!
You’ve sinned against God, like I have. He calls us to love and obey Him, in everything we do. What we do in front of people, what we do in secret and even down to what we think. And He will hold us accountable.
Look, time is running out and I don’t want anyone to go to hell. If your thought just now was, “I have a feeling it’s a little too late for that”, then know this: God loves you. 2,000 years ago He proved that. God became a man, Jesus Christ and He suffered and died on the cross to save you. He literally died to take your punishment and my punishment upon Himself, so that we could be forgiven and set free.
When Jesus rose from the dead and He ascended to heaven, He defeated death and hell and He is offering you and I eternal life. Do you realize what that means? If you are willing, God can save you. He prompted me to write this.
Confess your sins and turn away from them and put your faith in Jesus Christ. Pray, God please forgive me although I do not deserve it. Show me the way. Please tell me what to do. Please forgive me for doubting you and trusting the ways of this corrupt world. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
Sinless, pure and holy, He suffered for our sins. His body was broken for us, so that we could live. He said, whoever repents and trusts Him will be forgiven and live forever.
Eat the bread and share it and surrender yourself to its will. Love one another and tell one another even if you may feel they may not want to know. Or if you are simply afraid, tell them anyway. Forgive one another, hold no grudges and release any and everyone.
STOP participating in gossip of any kind. Do not under-estimate His commandment, “Do Not bear false witness against thy neighbor”. This commandment is as relevant and of utmost importance to Him, which is why He made it a commandment. Breaking this commandment sews satans seeds of mistrust, doubt, defeat and worry. See through him, condemn him and do not allow him to use you in the slightest way.
Drink the consecrated wine because it is to remind you of the precious blood Christ shed for you. Drink it and live! He could say the word and we would all be healed.
STOP judging one another. We are all sinners and full of faults. We have all made mistakes both large and small and He knows them all. Do not make the mistake of thinking your actions are less sinful than the next persons in the eyes of God. Be honest with yourselves, admit your faults and turn away from them.
As you concern yourself with household or daily duties, also tend to your souls. They are more important than your dwelling or your work.
Do not believe the people who intelligently, with absolute certainty, tell you there is no God or insist that you must accept their doctrine of self-reliance and non belief in order to be taken seriously in this world. THEY ARE FOOLS and their self induced prideful ignorance will produce exactly what it is reaping – NOTHING!
Hold on to your faith and let no one separate you from your salvation or from God.
See these people for who they represent.
Keep Him close, Confess your sins, Forgive your enemies. Forgiving does not mean allowing them back into your personal life. Forgiving means to understand, to know enough, to let it go in order to free yourself.
Because if you do not forgive, satan holds you as a slave to this world. Forever in bondage.
I conclude with the very last commandment Jesus gave the apostles before He was arrested and crucified:
“Love one another”
