About Me

My photo
I was graciously saved from charismatic confusion and catholicism tradition unto Jesus alone by John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me" which I read in a Jack Chick tract given me from a Christian friend who I helped at Gold's Gym for almost 5 years. He gave me the tract which I read at lunch. It was called "This Was Your Life". At the end I broke into a cold sweat because of heavy conviction that what I just read I was guilty of and knew I was in trouble. After reading another called "Last Rites" I prayed to God to forgive me and Jesus to save me because I didn't want to go to hell but go to Heaven one day. Jesus knew I could not save myself so he died on that cross for me. Now I give out the Chick tracts, gospel movies, and Biblical archeology newspapers so that God may be glorified in me through His Son Jesus, Messiah. Don't ever give up on your family and friends you pray for because his Word doesn't return void. And one day, you may hear God say unto you "..Well done thou good and faithful servant:..enter thou into the joy of thy Lord" Matthew 25:21,23 Amen

Welcome All Who Seek to Know What God Is Doing In These Last Days!
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man...Luke 21:36 And in Acts 2:17-21 It says "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."

Saved and Thy House

For me, as a Husband and Father, the ultimate ministry, prayer and hope is to have our House saved and in heaven. And it seems to be God's will also as I read in the holy scriptures. There are wonderful examples for us to reference.

The first that struck my heart was Acts 16:30-31,34 regarding the Phillipian Jailer:

And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house
.

Cornelius the Centurion would be next in Acts 10:2,27,33,44, Acts 11:14-15

A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always. And as he(Peter) talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together. Immediately therefore I(Cornelius) sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God. While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

Peter now relays the story to Jewish Christian Brethren, Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved. And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning.

Lydia had listened and heeded and was saved when Paul preached to her in Acts 16:14-15

And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshiped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul. And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.

Faithful Noah had his house saved as well, as written in Hebrews 11:7 and Genesis 7:1

By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

God himself had spoken to Abraham directly about his character that his children and household would keep the way of the LORD in Genesis 18:18-19

Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgement; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

Surely, to truly fulfill our roles in our home, we are to point our family, our house, to God himself. So the gifts He has entrusted us, will bring Him Glory by faith in Jesus, His Son.

Don't ever give up on praying for the salvation of your house, as we were once stubborn, lost, without the hope of God, so let us with the long-suffering and patience of God, be diligent with sharing the Gospel, the greatest gift of forgiveness and ultimately Heaven, with our families until they say "Yes" to Jesus and commit to His Word and ways. Amen
