The next is VERY important!!   If you gain nothing else from reading this site, pay attention to this:




The whole sum of REAL SALVATION in Christ, {the ONLY way to heaven!!!}

is by repentance AND belief in Jesus  {2 separate things!}   Acts 20:21


Repentance is turning from sin; and faith is turning to Christ.


See article which helps explain it:  http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Introduction/repent.htm   <– usual disclaimer:

 I did NOT read this entire web site & cannot personally vouch for everything in it.


And remember, regardless of any link I may suggest, ALWAYS read the Bible!!! ~ which is to be our final authority.


Acts 20:21  Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

From New Living Translation:   I have had one message for Jews and Greeks alike—the necessity of repenting from sin and turning to God, and of having faith in our Lord Jesus.


You see, by By His Blood, we have remission of sins, and He can help us overcome any deeds that are abominable in His sight.   It is FACT, we MUST TURN from any evil deeds!  


2 Tim 2:19 (b) says:  “All who belong to the Lord must turn away from evil.”


On judgment day, so many of those who went around claiming to be Christians, who claimed they were in love with the Lord, preachers, laymen, you name it ~ WHY are they cast away into hell?   From Matt 7:23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’


BECAUSE they NEVER TURNED AWAY FROM EVIL!!!!!!    {“repentance”}   If they were still PRACTICING sinning even while doing “wonderful deeds” in His name, even healing, even casting out demons, no matter WHAT they did on the “good side” ~ if they refused to TURN FROM evil, they are cast out of the Lord’s presence.... and into the Lake of Fire.


I feel the Lord would let me say that these should not include the ones who are not PURPOSELY SINNING, the ones who merely “fall down & skin their knees” from time to time, the ones who need their feet to be washed; rather, here, we are talking about the ones who purposely use God’s grace as a “license” to sin.


Romans 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
Romans 6:15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
Galatians 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another
I Peter 2:16 As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
II Peter 2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage




Types of evil lifestyles people need to repent FROM?  These are listed abundantly in the New Testament, in Corinthians, in Galatians, and Revelation as well as other places.  


Romans 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 1:31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.


I Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 5:21

Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.


From 1 Tim 3:6 ~ elders should not be: a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil.


Ephesians 5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.


Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.


NOTE:  Scripture proves that it not ONLY “unbelievers” who go to hell & from there to the Lake of Fire for all eternity.


And remember, sIn has “I” right in the middle of it!!   So does prIde!!  So I wonder if it might be correct in saying that most of the time when our thoughts are filled with “me, me, me; I, I, I, and my, my, my” ~ then we’d almost always be sinning against God and mankind?”   


Notice I say ALMOST always, for there are certain times that deem it appropriate and even necessary when we “MUST” think of ourselves & our own needs.  Even the angel woke Elijah up to get him to EAT and SLEEP, which were his current physical needs, trumping everything else at that time.  Those who’ve truly lacked for either may be the only ones who can totally understand this.  And even Jesus Himself commended the disciples to go with Him away to a quiet place for rest & refreshment.  So truly there is a time and a season for EVERYTHING under heaven.  Even the Sabbath was created for “rest” ~ something this crazy busy 24/7 world ceases to remember.


Unfortunately, most in today’s world have it all backwards & have a tendency to ignore & overlook & not even see the filthy, hungry, desperate Lazarus laying at our doorsteps, while we practically run over him on our way to go out to eat or on vacation, and to take care of me, me, me and my, my, my needs.


 In other words, in today’s selfish society, it’s very common to take care of our own needs FIRST and then throw any extra scraps to a neighbor in need.  Or to overlook it all together, or to go with the “I had great intentions but not enough time” reasoning.  {don’t worry, one finger pointed at you perhaps, but with four pointing back at myself!   Let’s just say, “Holy Spirit conviction” lately....}


Back to original topic here:   The biggest thing that many in these apostasy-filled end days must repent of is thinking they can MERIT HEAVEN by being “good enough” or by PERFORMING enough good deeds.   Unfortunately, I know people in my own family like this!!   Look, if we could be good enough on our own, Jesus would never have had to die!!


Speaking of the do-gooders, who try to earn heaven:  I know LOTS of “nice” sinners!!   In fact, I’m often times treated with bigger smiles & gracious attitudes at the (apostate) health food stores where I must go to buy my gluten-free items, but has an anti-God environment of little buddhas lining the wall...eiks, I hate even going in there & try to remember to put on my spiritual “armor” first.  But often times I’m treated better by these types than by Christians in church.  This is not the case all the time, but it has happened plenty enough for me to notice.

 

When I was in wheelchair from ankle break a year ago, the apostate folks at the health food store & in Chinese restaurants [okay, only pointing those out because of the Buddhist worship... “Generalizing”] Anyway, these people would smile and very graciously hold the door open for me, whereas one day in the super store I couldn’t get around a whole family of ladies, all wearing long skirts, all with long hair, some flowing, some done up in a bun, swinging those wide hips in front of my face (your perception is much different when wheelchair-bound & you can see only so high... EIKS, sorry for whom I may’ve just offended; just calling it as it really happened  {and I well expect many of us can use a little work on those “room additions” that we added to our Temples, eh?!}   Again.... Talking to self here..)  obviously these were “religious” ladies, who took up the entire aisle & would not budge one inch for me to get by. .... Believe me, I tried several times!  They wouldn’t budge!!  


So, two points:  regardless of how NICE a person is ~ does not make this person a Christian!!  The rich man (who ignored Lazarus) is still burning in hell today – but he *IS* a “nice guy” ~ compassionate, too!! ~ in not wanting his brothers to go to the same place of torment.  His request to Abraham was not for HIMSELF to be let out of there (he knew that was impossible) but he had 2 requests:  one, for a single drop of water to help quench his burning tongue and two, that prophets be sent to his brothers ~ so that THEY would not “come to this place of torment”.  Hate to be a fire & brimstone preacher here:  but “TORMENT” <– notice that word!!   It’s not “party time” in hell the way the comedians & world in general would have us believe.


And by the same token, anyone can dress the religious way, {not necessarily the “bible belt” but the Pharisee belt~??  ...one can wonder....}  & do everything “right” but yet “hath no love” ~ so what good is it?    Mercy triumphs over judgment. {re: James 2:13}


Will it be easier for the most vile sinner to confess & be saved than for the one who thinks s/he is so full of good works & is acceptable in God’s sight by “doing” what’s right in his/her own eyes?  ALL our works are as filthy rags.


I could not see into the hearts of these religious ladies that evening at the super store; maybe truly they belong to the Lord.  We can so hope!   I’m not here to judge whether someone’s a true Christian by the way she dresses.... Though it’s pretty doggone easy to presume that when someone DRESSES as a harlot – just what is inside the heart!!  I do know that ladies are commended to dress in modest attire & not overdo it;  ~ godly dressing has all but become a thing of the past.  But neither is it about a long list of men’s rules {hem lines, etc.}  & if we fail to measure up, we’re condemned.  


It’s about heart surgery!   Turn from any evil {if you don’t know what it is then ask Him to point it out to you!} and/OR turn from trying to be holy & pious of your own doing, which is IMO what most in America need to repent from ~ and give Jesus your heart.  Do it today!


All good done ON OUR OWN, (without first salvation & then with the Lord directing our steps) is as filthy, nasty, stinky,  used menstrual rags!  

We were created for good deeds AFTER salvation

~~ and BECAUSE of salvation,

~~ but not in order to ATTAIN salvation!!!!


A person can perform good deeds till the cows come home, however if s/he then says something that’s not aligned with the Bible, then that’s calling God a liar!!   For instance, if saying that the Bible was merely written by men and that it is not Holy Spirit-inspired that is calling God a liar.   Or if saying that everyone in the world or that MOST people in the world are going to heaven, that is calling God a liar.


I feel dirty & blasphemous even as I write these words, because God CANNOT lie!!!!!!


You may never get another chance.  Today is the accepted time of salvation.  

Do not put it off, or these warnings will reverberate in your ears and soul millions of years from now!!!!!!


Acts 20:21  (thank You for Your Word, Lord!!)


Repentance is REQUIRED (turning FROM sinning lifestyle) and Faith (turning TO Jesus!!)

AMEN; even so, COME Lord Jesus!!   Lord, we anxiously await Your arrival... may it be so!  In the meantime, may we bring honor, and glory and blessing to You by the way we live our lives, and may Your Glory be reflected in our thoughts and in our hearts.  May we bless You today.










BLESSED-HOPE

ABIDING IN THE VINE and looking forward to seeing

Lord Jesus, Yeshua and Messiah, in the pre-tribulation rapture!!

Titus 2:13


When the Lord Himself descends from heaven, with a shout, with a voice of an archangel, with the sound of a trumpet, & we shall be caught up together...IN THE CLOUDS to meet the Lord IN THE AIR ~  THIS IS OUR BLESSED HOPE!!!!!!
