Are you a scoffer?

Esau sold his birth-right for a pot of stew! ( Gen 25 v 29-34) "And Jacob boiled pottage. And Esau came in from the field, and he was faint. And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage . For I am faint. Therefore was his name called Edom. And Jacob said, “Sell me first thy birth-right.”
And Esau said, “Behold, I am about to die. And what profit shall the birth-right do to me?”
And Jacob said, “Swear to me first.”
And he sware unto him. And he sold his birth-right unto Jacob. And Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils. And he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way. So Esau despised his birth-right.

You have a birth-right!!!!

Now.....as it often happens, an angry person will blame everything that happened on every body else, but never himself.

Esau claims it was in Jacob's character to deceive people.

The truth is that only Jacob's name means deceiver.

Jacob was a reluctant participant in these events. Esau also claimed that Jacob stole his birth-right.

But, the truth is, that Esau sold it for a bowl of bean soup.

Esau also claimed that Jacob stole his blessing. However, the blessing was not his in the first place since God had said it belonged to Jacob. How can someone steal what was already his?

Satan wants your soul........you can let him have it.....you don’t have to sell it to him for a pot of stew,....how? By ignoring God and Jesus,

by default.....you have given your soul to him.

Unless you repent and accept Jesus as your personal Saviour, by default, you have accepted satan.

Whether you believe it or not, there is a heaven and there is a hell....and we go to either one.....

or the other......Biblically, that is how it is.

As we get closer to the end of the age, there is a spiritual battle ongoing for the hearts and minds of people being waged, with an intensity unlike any in history.

The Television shows are saturated with pretend Christian messages that state all kinds of false, but reasonable sounding counterfeit alternatives to salvation.

If you watch family-values oriented entertainment, you will learn that when people die, they become angels and come back and help other people. ( not true)

You can also tune into TV 'evangelists' to learn how to buy your way into heaven (by sending payments directly to them). ( also not true)

You see, we are going to see more and more of these kinds of things.....The Bible predicts it....The Word of God says...

“that ("in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires" 2 Peter 3 v 3)

I watched an interview yesterday, the young man said he was an agnostic. So the question was to him,

“Do you have any morals?” he replied that, yes he did.

Next question was, “Where do your morals come from?” He did not know.....

next question, “Do you think they might have come from a higher being, a creator?”

He thought that was a possibility.....he then decided he would believe in a “higher being, a creator” but an impersonal one.

He did not think it was wrong to steal,

to commit adultery.....

to tell lies.........up to a point!!!!

All I get from a conversation like that is..... “I will agree with you....up to a point........

but as soon as it conflicts with my desires, my wants, my likes.....I will then disagree”

He had committed all the above, by his own admission.

I hope and pray your soul belongs to Jesus, if not yet, then I ask you to repent and ask Jesus to be your Lord and Saviour.....then ask the Lord to help you to understand and read the gospel of John.

Do..."You" know Him???

“God bless this mess I've made”
doesn't work.

“God forgive and wipe clean this mess I've made,” does, as we repent.

During a daily conversation with a fellow believer and a dear friend who is looking for our Blessed Hope every second, she stated to me, after yet another harrowing day of bad news and headlines, “I am so weary of the troubles of this world. It doesn’t even seem real now. To me, Heaven is MORE real than life on this earth.”

So profoundly true. I feel many believers in Jesus Christ are feeling this way now as we watch the world spiral downward and see things we never thought would happen. The longing for our permanent home becomes more real, more tangible, more desirable and almost unbearable. We yearn to finally, finally be home with our Lord who has gone and prepared our place for us. We dream about thanking Him for suffering and dying in OUR place, for OUR sins.

How we look forward to celebrating His resurrection with Him. We cannot wait to finally bow at His feet and worship His name and sing His praises. He IS our Savior. He IS our Lord. He IS our security. He is MORE real than this world.

Do you know Him?

Do your friends and loved ones know Him?

If you invite Jesus to be the Lord of your life, and walk daily with Him, repent of your sins and seek His Face, your name is written in His Book of Life and your destiny is to be with Him in the safety and security of His loving arms for all of eternity! Security is THAT simple! And knowing your eternity is secure in Jesus Christ is pure bliss. There is no other word for it. It is lockdown. It is a done deal.

Time is running out. Maybe you have heard this before, but the Bible promises that Jesus will return to this earth and the signs that we are to look for are blaring at us like a freight train tearing down the tracks. The yellow light is just about to blink to red and your eternity will become written in stone. Are you ready? Is your eternal security intact?

I feel a sense of urgency like never before. I feel like I have very little time to wrap up the loose ends of the things God has given me to accomplish before He sends Jesus to take His followers out of this world. It almost seems like God is wrapping things up too, doesn’t it?

Every chance I get to witness to someone I care for is an enormous relief—one step closer, to the reward of Heaven that God has promised His children. It is hard to explain, but if you are watching and listening for Jesus, you know what I mean. We have gotten to that point now. We have disconnected. We have let it go. Heaven IS more real than what is being dealt to us by the prince of this world (Satan). It is the reason for our indifference and our discontent with our earthly abode.
Thank you Camilla Smith. (From Rapture ready)
