Preach Gospel

After Jesus rose from the dead He taught we should go and preach the Gospel to everyone. When we preach the Gospel we should be patient, loving and understanding. To a non-believer the Gospel is sometimes seen as foolish but to us it is the Power of God. There is hope that the Gospel will be preached to everyone. God is wise and moves in our lives and can do the same for an unbeliever. Christ does not want anyone to go to hell but all to have eternal life in Heaven. Jesus is the love of God revealed to all people and the only way to cleanse us of our sins and be forgiven. May all the glory be to God for the gift of Heaven and that eternal life is promised to all those that believe and accept Him. Amen

Holy Spirit

God desires to lead us in our journey of life. Even when we go through struggles God is always with us. “Psalms:23:4: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” It’s great to know God loves us and will protect us from evil. Christ will comfort us and that is also why we have the Holy Spirit with us. John 14:26 says, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” Matthew 28:20 says, “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” What that means is that Jesus will always be with us. Christ is eternal so that is why He says even until the end of the world. Beyond the end of the world Jesus will still exist and be with us. God has promised some day to send Jesus back to earth and rapture Christians into Heaven. Praise God for His love and mercy. Amen


It is important to trust in God and desire for Him to lead us away from evil. Matthew 6:13 says, ” And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” Jesus is gracious and compassionate. Christ came to earth so He has sympathy for our struggles. God could have justly sent everyone to hell. The Lord in His deep love for us sent Jesus to die for our sins. If we walk in the light with Jesus we are the light of the world. Jesus never sinned so there is no darkness in Him. Praise God for His mighty Son Jesus. Amen

What Happens When We Die?

Many ask the question, “What happens when we die?” When we die according to 2 Corinthians 5:8, when we are “…absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”. When speaking about eternal salvation Romans 10:9 says, “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.”. All we need to do is come before God and He will forgive us, we just need to pray, believe and accept Christ. Praise God for dying for our sins and opening up the Kingdom of God to us. Amen

Life In Heaven

The Bible promises eternal life. John 3:16 teaches us that Jesus came and died to save us from our sins. We should have great confidence that when we die if we believe and accept Jesus will go to Heaven. “Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 5:8)”. God has an amazing afterlife in Heaven promised to us. 1 Corinthians 2:9 says, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” Praise God. Amen

Hard Times

The Bible teaches that we should rejoice when we face challenges in life. God desires to use those experiences to help us grow in our faith. When we tackle the hard things in life it helps us learn to endure in the midst of hardship. God’s grace and love shines when we struggle. “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.” – 2 Corinthians 1:8-10. What does that mean? It means that God loves us and will help us through the challenges. While it may be hard to have joy when times are terrible we should. Praise God that He is always with us. Amen

Victory in Jesus

The Bible tells us that we may go through struggles and temptations. When we go through these struggles God will help us through His Holy Spirit so that we are not tempted more than we can handle. God will also be our guide through the challenges we face and help us find a way to overcome them.”No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13″

Romans 3:23 teaches us that we have all sinned and fallen away from God. Jesus came to earth and died for our sins because He was and is the only one that can bridge the gap between God and people. We should trust in God knowing that regardless of what we are going through He loves us and desires to help us overcome. We have victory through Jesus. Amen

Heaven Is Not Violent

We see that Jesus uses John as an example that there were many people who flocked to hear John.  It was as if they were about to take the Kingdom of Heaven by force. This has continued. Since “the kingdom of heaven,” has been preached, there has been a rush to hear it. Those people were pressing into the message to obtain the blessing, as if they would take it by violence. He says, people had pressed around him and John since they began to preach. There is no doubt here to the manner in which salvation is sought by individual sinners, but it is simply a record of the fact that multitudes had rushed around him and John to hear the gospel.

Matthew 11:12

“From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been subjected to violence, and violent people have been raiding it. (NIV)

 And from the time John the Baptist began preaching until now, the Kingdom of Heaven has been forcefully advancing, and violent people are attacking it. (NLT) 

From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force. (ESV)”

Reconciled to God

Jesus Christ is the only way to be reconciled to God. Reconciliation is the work of God through Christ by which we are saved and promised life with God. When we are united with God He remains perfect and never changes. But God changes us. God in His love gave His beloved Son to die a substitutionary death for all sinners. John 3:16, “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.”. 2 Corinthians 5:18-19 (NIV), “All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.” Praise God for His Son and that we are saved through Him. Amen


It is Christ who gives us strength during hard times. Phillipans 4:3 tells us, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” God is loving and powerful when we put our trust in Him, He will not let us down. God is faithful towards us and desires the best for us. The Bible was written as God’s guide for us. Psalms 119:105 says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Proverbs 3:6 says, “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”. It’s great news to know that God left His Word on earth to guide us, and that the Holy Spirit also guides us. Amen
