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."

When Magnets Repel

I periodically meet with a Contractor friend at some of the buildings I manage. Today was one of those days. He "rocks and rolls for Jesus" during his work and I admire that he keeps Him at the forefront of his heart even during work. But I always prepare by praying when I am around him.

He calls himself a Christian and I believe him but he will almost provoke a doctrinal discussion about his views, when we are together, which are contrary to the Bible. I ask myself, "Lord, maybe he is confused." and other times I am glad that we agree that Jesus is Lord and our Savior and we agree to disagree.

Because of the differences of belief, it is hard to have fellowship with him. The Bible says that... God is not the author of confusion 1 Corinthians 14:33...  yea let God be true and every man a liar...Romans 3:4We are to study to show ourselves approved unto God...2 Timothy 2:15

Just as two magnets are the same type in essence, composition, and qualities of attractability and repellability, yet, when you place two similar magnets on the wrong side of each others poles, they repel! When you have 2 similar Christians with differing doctrines, they will repel each other to a degree. It doesn't mean one is saved and the other is not, but the same doctrinal beliefs of God and the virgin birth of the Son of God and His salvation through the death and resurrection of Jesus for our sin must be there in order to work through these differences. So it is with us.

We are both Christians but see some truths differently on certain topics. It doesn't make us less a Christian. Magnets will always be magnets and Christians who are born again will always be born again believers no matter which side of a doctrine we may be on. I hope that you may bear patiently in the love of God also with your brethren who you may not see things eye to eye.

Bible Memorization

Topic is Soul Winning in our walk:

Daniel 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Matthew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 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.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

How is your soul winning this month, this year?
