Eternal Rest

The Best Is Yet To Come Church Website Banner

This week has been a very relaxing week for Tammy and me as we have been away on vacation. I would like to thank you for the opportunity to get away and to rest. As we make preparations for Judgement House, I hope you have been busy inviting your coworkers and family members to come and go through Judgement House. It is also my hope that you have been praying for a great harvest through the work of Judgement House.

The Day is surely approaching when all of Mankind shall stand before the Lord in judgement. It may be that the Lord tarries His coming many more years, and it may be that before this article makes it to publication that we are called away from here. We have no idea how long it will be before the Lord closes His work here on earth down. All that we know for sure is that God is faithful to His Word and is not slack concerning His promises. We therefore have to work while there is time and do all that we can to evangelize this lost and dying world. Judgement House is a great opportunity for you to do just that as you invite, work, and pray that the Gospel might reach the people who live and work around you. Go invite them to come and see a drama presentation of the power of the Gospel to change a person’s eternity.

Let Him In While You Can

Guard Your Heart Church Website Banner
Can you imagine how the World would be without the presence of Christians in it? There will come a day when the church is gone, and the wrath of God will be poured out on this place. I will be gone. Hopefully you will be gone as well, but for some, the torment of that day will be such as the world has never known. It will be a time when Satan is torturing humanity along with the wrath of God. The scripture teaches us that people will seek death and not be able to find it.
 
It seems that God gets really angry when people reject the gift of His only begotten Son. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of an angry God. Often, people avoid reading the book of Revelation because they are afraid of all that it says; this does not change the reality of what is going to take place. Listen, the only way to avoid the wrath of God that is revealed in His Word is to accept the love of God that is revealed in His Word. That love is demonstrated and validated by the gift of Jesus Christ Who is the propitiation for our sin. So if you have never accepted the gift of God’s grace I pray that you will so that heavens peace can abide in your heart and life.

Going Home

Now Or Never Church Website Banner
It is wonderful for us as Christians to think about the Rapture of the Church and how glorious it would be to leave this world by being caught up. To be one of the ones swept up through the sky to a glorious meeting in the air, to see those who have gone on before in a grand meeting and then to see the Lord standing to welcome us to our eternal home. This is a promise that all true believers look forward to, thus the Word of God says that He shall come again for those who look for His appearance. I am certainly one of those who look for His appearance with great anticipation and hope.
 
The Promise of the Rapture should keep us looking up, and cause us to live more upward focus. To know that Jesus can and shall come back a time when people are not expecting should keep us always expecting and inspecting our lives. The Word of God teaches us that as we see the signs of the end that we are to look up knowing that our redemption draws nigh. To put it simple, don’t get all down and out but be ready to move out as the trumpet blows and the Lord call us to Him. So I want to remind you to be ready and think about your eternal destination and make your salvation sure. For we know not the day or the hour but we know for sure that we are going to leave this world one day.

The Light of the World

This Changes Everything Sermon Series Website Graphic
This coming Monday, thousands of people will turn their eyes toward the heavens. This has been a long-time prayer of mine; although, this is not exactly the way that I had planned or the reason I wanted to see people look toward the heavens. You see, I have prayed for years that people would turn their eyes, heart, and mind toward the Person, place, and promises of heaven. This Monday, people do not look for the light that comes from heaven but to the event when the light is overshadowed for a mere three minutes. How could it be possible that people would be so excited to see the sun overshadowed that school would be canceled and that thousands of people would travel long distances to get the best viewing spot for such a short lived event?
 

There has been many times in the history of man when there have been attempted eclipses of the real Light of the world. People have tried to overshadow Him with hate, idols, religions, and endless lies about Jesus not existing. Yet with every attempt, He has shown right through the futile attempts of Satan and man to destroy the truth and power that His light gives. So as you look up at the sun and wait for an eclipse to take place, remember that the One who hung the sun in the sky and keeps it burning has a burning in His heart to fill your life with light and purpose: “In Him was life; and the life was the light of men” (John 1:4).

Are You Ready?

I Will Not Be Moved Church Website Banner

As the new Church year approaches are you ready? Are ready to serve the Lord in the capacity that He has called you using your spiritual gift? Every person in the church has a unique calling and giftedness to serve the Lord. For you to use your God given ability you have to be flexible and willing to deny your own agenda for the call and purpose of God. It will be virtually impossible to faithfully use your gift without personal sacrifice and a strong commitment to do what God has created you to do.

Are you ready to be a Gospel witness for the Lord? God has called all us to one specific commission or purpose and that is the Great Commission. Every born again believer is called to be a witness for Jesus Christ and do our part in the taking the Gospel around the world. We work hard to equip you with your testimony and the Word of God but you have to be willing to pray for boldness and step out by faith and share what the Lord has done for you and what He can do for others as you go from place to place.

Lastly are you ready for the coming of the Lord? Many people fear the end of the world or the second coming of Christ. You don’t have to live in fear but can live with great expectation for the day of His coming. If you are born again, and ready that day is not a day to be feared but rather a day to rejoice. On that day we will see Him face to face the one who saved us by His grace. It will be a day when we can say goodbye the pain and suffering of this world and forever be in the presence of our loving Lord. If you are not ready for that day please let me help you know Him in a free pardon of Sin.
