THE SINNERS’ LAMENT

Last night, I had an awful dream that the end of time had come.

The trumpet had been sounded and life on Earth was done.

An Angel stood one foot on land and another foot on sea.

And as I tried to kneel and pray, a Voice said unto me,

“It’s standing room! No time for woes! It’s much too late to pray!

It’s standing room! It’s time to go! This is God’s great Judgment Day!”

People filled the churches as far as eyes could see.

I heard a cry for mercy then realized it was me.

I saw the Savior then appear as He split the Eastern sky.

There were tears of joy on a Christian’s face yet I saw the sinners cry.

I tried to touch His Holy hand and with one last feeble plea

I cried again, “Have mercy, Lord! Have mercy, Lord, on me!”

I saw a tear come to His eye as He turned my soul away.

I didn’t know Him yesterday, so He knew me not today.

The Earth was burning all around and the world went up in smoke,

And as the flames engulfed me, I thanked God that I awoke.

I got out my bed and on my knees and you should have heard me pray

For in my dream I saw the fate of God’s great Judgement Day.

ABORTION IN THE CHURCH

“For you formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was being made in secret…” Psalm 139:13-16

For a Christian, the choice of abortion is not a matter of a woman’s right to choose. It is clearly a matter of death to those whom God has made in His image.

It is not for me to enter into a discussion that covers all the different scenarios that one may believe justifies an abortion. It is for me however, to make perfectly clear that the act of abortion is considered murder in God’s eyes, and murder is a sin. Although this may be an accepted practice to man, it is not acceptable to God.

Child of God, we have all made mistakes. We have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Whether this was a past mistake or a recent error in judgement, know that God loves you so much that He has made a way out for you. He has made a way for all who are truly repentant and choose to sin no more.

Remember, all unconfessed sin gives the enemy the right to access your life as well as the lives of your family. When  the opportunity presents itself, he will, by all means, take full advantage of that opened door. For his only desire is to kill, steal and destroy us.

Generational curses are also something to be concerned about. These are curses that are passed down from one generation to another due to sin. Child of God, as a Christian, you have the right and the authority to cancel these curses. This is a process called deliverance.

If you have ever had an abortion, encouraged or paid for an abortion, participated in an abortion, performed an abortion or played any part in an abortion, remember that YOU CAN BE FORGIVEN through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

All sin can be forgiven if only you are willing to humble yourself and confess your sin, permanently turn from it and ask the Lord for forgiveness.

DO NOT DELAY. Many people are spending eternity in Hell for sin they are continuing to commit as well as for sin they have never repented for. DO NOT LET THIS BE YOU.

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

FIRST COMES REPENTANCE THEN COMES DELIVERANCE

“So they went out and preached that people should repent. And they cast out many demons…” Mark 6: 12-13. For true believers, first comes repentance then comes deliverance.

God’s people are waiting for God to deliver them while God is waiting for His people to repent. If you want to be delivered from the strongholds of sin, from demonic oppression and from evil spirits, you and your life must completely line up with God’s word.

Who wants to be oppressed and in bondage? No one does. And yet every day people walk around suffering from demonic oppression and trapped in bondage to sin. Jesus said, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.” John 8:34

Child of God, there is evil behind every sin and once a sin has been committed, it opens the door to demonic oppression. Sin gives demons authority to access your life as well as the lives of your family. This is called demonic oppression and it can afflict you and your family in many ways such as with illness, poverty, curses, disease, death, etc and even eternal damnation if not stopped in time.

The evil that is attached to sin also has a way of taking hold of a person’s life. This evil can set up destructive habits inside of a person that are very hard to break. This is called demonic possession. Once a demon, or even demons, have taken possession, it can wreak havoc in the lives of you and your family in ways such as alcoholism, drug addiction, pornography, sexual immorality, anger, hatred, bitterness, violence, etc. Freedom from this bondage is possible. However, it can only come through deliverance from a qualified man or woman of God who has been given the authority to cast out demons. And permanent deliverance is only possible for the believer through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

All oppression and possession is subject to verbal repentance made to our Savior, Jesus Christ. He is the only One who is able to permanently break these chains. Once a truly repentive heart has confessed their sins and submitted their lives to God, then and only then does he have the capability to resist the devil and cause the devil to flee.

There are many prayers available out there to assist you with your concessions and repentance. However the secret to deliverance is not in the words that you pray, it lies within the heart of the one that speaks. (Luke 6:45)

WHY WON’T GOD STOP ALL THE SUFFERING IN THE WORLD?

The Answer: “HE IS…”

why-does-god-allow-suffering-and-evil

…And that day is coming very, very soon.

When Jesus returns, not only will He put a stop to ALL the evil and suffering in this world, He will put a stop to ALL who commits the evil and suffering in this world. This will include ALL who lie, who cheat, who steal, who murder, who covet, who lust, who are sexually immoral, who commit fornication, who commit adultery, who deceive, who slanders (smears one’s name), who are lascivious (who seek to cause inappropriate sexual desire), who are wicked, who are prideful, who are foolish, who are impure, who practice idolatry (worshiping something or someone other than God), who practice witchcraft (in all of its forms), who cause hostility, who cause strife, who are jealous, who have fits of anger, who cause rivalry, who cause conflict, who cause division, who envy, who commit drunkenness, who are selfish, who are greedy, who are arrogant, who are abusive (in all forms), who are disobedient to parents, who are ungrateful, who are unholy, who are merciless, who are slanderous, who have no self-control, who are brutal, who do not love what is good, who are treacherous, who are reckless, who are conceited, who are godless and those who deny Jesus Christ is Lord.

PEOPLE are the cause of all the suffering in the world.  God gave us a free will to make our own choices and decisions in life. Unfortunately, people misuse and abuse this freedom to cause pain and suffering to others in various ways. When evil came into the world, sin contaminated everyone and everything. Those in this world who have not received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, who transforms us from sinners, will continue to operate under the influence of evil to the very end.

Do you believe we are all truly ready for God to put a stop to the PEOPLE who cause the suffering in this world? Are you ready for that day? Are all of your loved ones ready for that day?

You see, God is tarrying for you. He is holding back His judgment, and His wrath, to give you and others time to repent. He is giving the people of this world time to turn from their sins and turn to Him. For when God finally signals the return of His son, Jesus Christ, He will eternally put an end to it all. When this happens, it will be a brand new day. The Kingdom of God will have come. Only then, what is good and those who are good, according to the Word of God, will remain. Only then, will Jesus Christ redeem and rule this world. Only then, will evil be annihilated and all the suffering in this world come to an end.

Unfortunately, the time that God is holding back from us also allows time for evil to continue in this world. And as long as there is evil in this world, there will continue to be suffering in this world. God is a just God. He allows the wheat and the weeds to grow up together until His appointed time of Harvest. When that time comes, what is of Him will be gathered, the rest will be thrown into the fire for God is righteous, Holy and sovereign. “…He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” Matthew 5:45.

There will come a day, however, when righteousness and evil will be separated:

Jesus told the following story: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a farmer who planted good seed in his field. But that night as the workers slept, his enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat, then slipped away. When the crop began to grow and produce grain, the weeds also grew. The farmer’s workers went to him and said, “Sir, the field where you planted that good seed is full of weeds! Where did they come from?” “An enemy has done this!” the farmer exclaimed. “Should we pull out the weeds?” they asked. “No,” he replied, “you’ll uproot the wheat if you do. Let both grow together until the harvest. Then I will tell the harvesters to sort out the weeds, tie them into bundles, and burn them, and to put the wheat in the barn.” Matthew 13:24-30 

Jesus said, “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.” Matthew 24:42
