itsallaboutchrist asked: This is to the anon, that asked why is living a Christian life so hard: The Lord says, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." (John 16:33) God bless! :)
prettypagesofyourdiary asked: My friend needsm prood that Jesus is coming back. Like, she knows already but she feels like the signs were always there so why is it any more reason now?
Sorry for the delay. We’ve got so many questions we still need to get to. Just been such a heavy packed 2 months for us. But we’ll through each question very soon.
“However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.” Matthew 24:36
“for you know quite well that the day of the Lord’s return will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night.” Thessalonians 5:2
If you ask God for wisdom to discren and understand His word, He’ll give it to you (James 1:5). And if you ask Him to give you eyes to see with ears to hear in the spirit and midst of His truth, He will.
And as you come to read His word with wisdom and understanding and then look to what is going on in the world today (watching the news, informing yourself about what is going in politics, technology etc etc) you’ll see how everything that has been written through the book of Revelation has come to be true *keep in mind, many of the things written in Revelation are a revelation( vision) that was given by God. It MUST be interpreted in the spirit to be understood. Also, to understand Revelation, you need to be able to understand the entire Bible and have a strong relationship with God. You also need to be living in the spirit, not the flesh.
Looking at history and all that’s happened and looking at what is written in God’s word and what He’s taught me, I can strongly say with confidence that we are very close into entering the 6th (Revelation 6:12) of the seven seals before Jesus return for His people.
I tell you the truth, even if Christ Jesus were to come down right now and perform miracles in front of the world, people still wouldn’t believe in Him, in fact, they’d probably laugh and mock Him like they do.
Your friend needs to anchor her faith deep and strongly into God’s solid word. She needs to realize that believing in Jesus means to believe in all of Him (including His word). It means making the decision to become a radical Christian. The word Christian meaning “little anointed one” and radical meaning that you wholly trust in God and in His word for everything you face in life, whether it be trials, tribulations, doubts or anything at all.
The Bible says that Jesus’ return for His church and people will be in the times when the earth and it’s people are living like the days of Sodom and Gomorrah (which is where we’re basically at again) Genesis 19).
The Bible also states that it’ll be in times where people are going to push God and Jesus out of everything.
I believe that when the rapture finally hits, the news is going to broadcast it as an “alien” abduction, and the world i going to believe it. It’ll be in this time *after Christ takes His church* that the anti-christ is going to rise somewhere in the middle east to bring “peace” to the world, but there won’t be any true peace.
“They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace.” Jeremiah 6:14
Encourage your friend to look to God and to ask God to help her draw herself closer to Him. Encourage her to ask God to strengthen her faith and to help her to trust in Him more.
It’s an important thing to trust in God, especially in these hard times— and it’s just as important to truly abandon the old you to live the new life God has set out for each and every one of us. God wants us to trust in Him for everything. There are blessings for those who blindly trust God with their all for every one of their worries/troubles, no matter how big or small.
“We live by faith and not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
“and I don’t need to see it to believe it.” -Hillsong UNITED: Tear Down the Walls.
Be highly blessed, friend!
Keeping your friend in our prayers.
“Faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” - Hebrews 11:1
“The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.” - Luke 17:5
“Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.” - Romans 10:17
hopefullylookingforward asked: what are your thoughts on evidence of faith as it applies to assurance of faith? Another way to ask the question what are your thoughts on the sermon titled "The Shocking Youth Message" by Paul Washer? (you can find it on Youtube.)
God saved you by His grace when you believed. Ephesians 2:8.
Everything that this man (Paul Washer) was saying in this video was the brutal truth.
It takes faith everyday to believe and walk with God. because there’s not just a Narrow Gate into Heaven, but a Narrow Way. (Matthew 7:13-14)
What he was basically saying throughout this video is that we have to work at our Salvation each day and never take it for granted because it;’s when we take things for granted that they can be lost. We need to be serious about Christ.
We need to self analyzing ourselves and ask ourselves if we really live what we believe and we need to realize and accept that we cannot bend our opinions to God’s word. After all, we do not know the mind of God. His ways are higher than our ways. And personally, I’d prefer to accept what it says in His word than to feel my own way through theology.
So yeah, that video was brutal truth. And it may be hard to take but it is what churches and people need to hear.
Be HIGHLY Blessed brody/dally!
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t sing or play an instrument or whatever God has called you to do.. don’t let anyone tell you to leave what you’ve been called to do for someone who actually has talent… No, you’re not obliged to already have it.
God uses all the insignificant little people and God can use anyone and anything for His Glory. And He can give anyone the talent to do what He’s called them to do. All you have to do is ask God for the talent, serve Him with all your heart and all the love you can offer, give Him the glory always and stay humble and BELIEVE with everything that God can use you because if God called you to do it, then you better darn believe He’s going to give you the talents to do whatever it is He wants you to do.
With hearts joined as one, in all our work and in all we do for the Glory and Love of a Risen King.
Father, that is our prayer tonight. Jesus, That You would break down these walls that keep us from opening our hearts fully to what Your capable of doing in us. Let us be a living sacrifice to who You are and all You are. Help us to believe that You can use us for what You’ve called us to do. Allow our faith to go beyond reason unthinkable and into such a state where it doesn’t matter what people might think or say, but that the only thing that truly matters is what You tell us and what You think and what You know. Help us to believe and trust the plans that You have for us with unceasing belief and Help us to look to You for everything we confront in life. Let us be desperate for all that You are. Every chain in us broken and captive free to work for Your Love, everyday of our lives.
All this, for Your glory and for Your fame.
In Jesus Mighty Name We Pray. Amen.
He Loves you with everything. And He wants to bless your paths.
Align your heart with His and you will see His glory.
hopefullylookingforward asked: what are your thoughts on evidence of faith?
“Now faith is the reality of things being hoped for, the proof of things not being seen.” - Hebrews 11:1
As Christians we do have evidence for our faith. We have the Bible: 66 books, 40 authors, written in 3 languages, over 1,600 years, prophecy, and moral and spiritual truth. We also have the resurrection of Jesus; confidence in His words, and evidence of God’s truth in our lives. And it’s amazing to us how the apostles never denied Jesus after his crucifixion, all died as martyrs.
We have evidence of faith. :]
How are you awesome broskies and brodettes!
This week lets talk about the process that we are all in and while we serve God,we get called to his calling!
So lets start little dewds!!!!! BAHAHA
3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Do you sometimes feel like things are not working out when you put your effort and power towards it? like why am I getting in trouble when i didn’t even do nothing? or how come I work work and see nothing getting better.
Its simple, God has a time for everything! maybe your going through a drought right now so when the rain comes you’ll see that God is manifesting Himself in that process! Meaning, if i have nothing now, but a second later I have everything, you’ll notice it and say, “This must be a miracle! a work from God Himself!”.
The best to see Gods glory is to let GO and LET GOD! Stop having one foot in and the other one out! Jesus Gave EVERYTHING for you, all He is asking you for, is to LIVE! to live for HIM! To live for your brother, sister, mother,that guy you bumped into by accident while walking down the street,that kid that said is gonna beat you up,the banker that wants to take all your money,for your enemy,for your friend!
Have the heart of Christ, the heart of compassion! of living for others, and watch it create a domino effect in your life. Because as you bless others God blesses YOU.
It is written:
For the eyes of the Lord run to and from throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.
2 Chronicles 16:9
Are you reading this out loud? because God just told you He is looking who to bless, YOU! The one who says,”Here I am Lord, I will look only to you! your glory and mercy! I give all that i have to you!”
Just reach for Jesus! learn about Him! and the best way to learn is to read what He did and said! its all in the bible dudes!
If you have not received Jesus as your lord and savior, SEND US A FAN MAIL! we want to help you reach your blessing TODAY!
God bless you awesome peoples of God!
And remember stay righteous!
