10 Things God will not ask you at the Judgment

1). Did you do your best?

2). Did you try being a good person?

3). Did you obey my Commands?

4). Did you love?

5). Did you Trust my Son Jesus?

6). Did you go to Church?

7). Did you read your Bible?

8). Did you get Baptized?

9). Did you pray?

10). Did you do a kind deed everyday?

If you notice each of these questions started with; “did you” ……which indicates works as part of Salvation. Make no mistake about the Truth, God knows those who are His and everyone who Names the Name of Christ Depart from Iniquity! So many teach people need to do this or do that to be accepted by God. On the other hand, God says, Done, Done, Done when it comes to Salvation! You see God is Holy and will never “tolerate” sin. So because He doesn’t want anyone to Perish He satisfied His own Righteousness by Crucifying Jesus Christ His Only Begotten Son! Salvation is DONE! Jesus Paid for your salvation by taking your sins upon His Body and was nailed to a Tree. When You Turn and Trust He died and was Raised from the Dead, Bang, your saved! Jesus will then speak for you at the Judgment. In fact He already has judged you and declared you Forgiven! Walk in the Freedom of Righteousness! God’s Grace empowers us to Live a Holy life!!1462886_10201747966612920_1267519743_n

Good day everyone in the land of America. I want to write a short blog on one single verse from the Bible. I would say to everyone reading this to examine their faith and walk with Christ. If you find yourself being convicted by the Holy Spirit then you need only repent. Jude 1:4 “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Clearly today in America “Christianity” has taken on a new philosophy, which is not new, that says everything is covered in Grace and we can just be ourselves. The Scripture I just posted says that there will be “ungodly men” that will turn the Grace of God into “lasciviousness” and they would even deny the Only Lord Jesus Christ in the process. WARNING! What you are about to read may indeed be shocking to you. I pray it is Shocking! Because anyone proclaiming Christ with their mouths and then talk like the devil needs to be Warned that God does not turn a blind eye to His Name being blasphemed by our lives or our mouths.

Let us define the word lasciviousness; 1. lacking legal or moral restraints; especially: disregarding sexual restraints 2. marked by disregard for strict rules of correctness.

So, lasciviousness is the opposite of Righteousness. It is a disregard for morals. It is FILTHINESS or uncleanness of thinking, talking and living. By the way Jesus said whatever a man thinks, that he becomes! So why would a “Christian” want to be unclean? Filthy mouthed? Immoral? Let me be Bold here, they CAN’T! If you have the Spirit of Christ in you there is no way you can “turn God’s Grace into lasciviousness” without some Holy Chastisement from the Lord! Paul put it this way; Romans 6:1 ¶ What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Answers to these questions is a resounding God FORBID! Now listen to this Warning Paul gave the Galatian Church and us; 5:19 “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Did you read the WARNING? “ that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”

Your manner of speech matters! Your lifestyle matters! Jesus Christ DID NOT die on the Cross so you and I could have a License to sin! By the way, Jesus Christ IS Grace! When we our IN HIM through Faith and we “continue” to sin He is right there with us!

I do want to tell you something. I am not saying you will go to Hell if you commit sin. What I am going to tell you is when you do sin it should bother you! If it does not bother you to sin then I will question your relationship with Christ! Judgmental? YES. DO I mind being Judged in the same way I just spoke? NOPE! Let us Live as Free men and woman! Not to sin but to live in Righteousness! Let us never fall for anyone turning the Grace of God into a license to sin, which is lasciviousness, nor be guilty of sinning against God with the Grace card! Think Righteous and do Righteously. Think uncleanly and do uncleanness! You are what you think! You are what you believe! You are of Christ then you are Righteous!46520_4034938064657_1205287887_n

The Humbling of America

 

Is it possible that the Lord Jesus, who is God, is using corrupt leaders to bring Americans to their knees? I am 100% convinced of it. If I am wrong may the Lord Jesus rebuke me, for I am His and He is mine. I would like to simply put a few reference from the Scripture to illustrate the stated question.

 

First off let us look at Israel who is the God Chosen Nation to bring forth His Only begotten Son Jesus Christ. The Lord impressed the following Scripture to consider. Daniel 9:2 “In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

Here we see Israel brought into bondage as prophesied through the prophet Jeremiah. 70 years Israel would be ruled by ungodly kings. Why? Because Israel turned away from God who set them apart to be a Nation. Was not America set apart to be a Nation founded upon by the Providence of the God of Israel? Yes. Americans have forgotten from whence it came! Our Founding fathers of America prophesied that the America will fail if it turns away from God. If God founded Israel and put them under the bondage of wicked kings to Humble them will He not due the same to America? Yes.

 

Second, let us consider the following Scripture; 2Timothy 3:1 ¶ “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

Notice Paul states in verse 5 that they “Having a form of godliness” but denying the “power” thereof. Could Paul be referring to confessing Christians who talk a good talk but live as verses 2-4? I believe so.

 

Thirdly, what did God say He would do to people who “ who hold the truth in unrighteousness” as described in Romans 1? God said through Paul that He would give them over to a reprobate mind. Are we seeing a Nation of reprobates? Yes. Again, Paul is talking to Christians when writing Romans 1. Is God turning Americans over to their own Filth? Let God Speak. Romans1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness. Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Indeed this is the folly of Americans who claim “In God we Trust” and say they are a “Christian Nation” and yet Immorality is at an all time high with no reversal in sight!

 

Consider this section of Romans 1; 26 “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” If this does not describe the Gay Pride movement in America may the Lord Jesus Rebuke me!

 

Other uncleanness in American Churches;

Romans 1:28 “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.

I see this all the time and it breaks my heart. All of these sins are forgiven in Christ Jesus but yet all of these are ACTIVE in our Churches and society!

 

Last but not least, God is the bestower of Freedom and He is taking it away! The Lord Giveth and the Lord Taketh away, Blessed be the Name of the Lord! How can I saw this? Consider the following Passage; Galatians 5:13 ¶ “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty (Freedom); only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.” Do we see Christians love and serving one another or do we see “Christians using freedom that was given by God to indulged their flesh? I do see love and serving in the Church in America but I dare say the latter is overwhelmingly the majority! If God gave us Freedom it is to Righteousness not wickedness! The Lord God is taking away Freedom from America because America is Corrupted to its core with self-indulgence and immorality! I do not want any one reading this to agree with me but to rather consider what is written! Is America better than Israel? No. Did God Humble Israel by taking away their freedom? Yes Is the same thing happening to America? Yes. If you do not believe any of this that is OK. God will certainly have the last say in everything! American Christians need to stop Complaining about our Leaders in Washington D.C. And start Interceding for our Nation! Daniel did not whine and complain about the leaders who were wicked, so why should we? Listen to what Daniel prayed and maybe this can be a guide for us. Notice he includes himself while praying “we” referring to Israel. May we find ourselves turning back to God through Jesus Christ as He Humbles us as a Nation;

 

Daniel 9:3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:

4 ¶ And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;

5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:

6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

7 O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.

8 O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.

9 To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;

10 Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.

11 Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.

12 And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.

13 As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.

14 Therefore hath the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.

15 And now, O Lord our God, that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast gotten thee renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.

16 O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us.

17 Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake.

18 O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.

Image19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.

I would like to take a few moments to address an important issue. The topic is of relationship. Not just any relationship, but the Most important relationship, you and God! As a Born Again believer in Jesus Christ it is a top Priority in my life and I can Boldly say it must be a top priority in your life as well, unless of course you want to give the Savior of your soul second best! I trust you are Born Again in Christ? If not, stop reading this and immediately turn from your sins and turn to Jesus’ Cross and know He has forgiven you and washed your sins away in His own Blood. Believe he was Resurrected from the dead!! That Gospel Truth starts a “personal” relationship with God!

Once you become a Born Again believer God gives you the Holy Spirit who will guide you into all Truth, because He is the Spirit of Truth!! As the Scripture states; “John 16:13 “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

14 “He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.

15 “All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.”

Now to relationship. We all have had personal relationships with other people. Spouses, friends, accountability partners etc. there are different levels to relationships. First there are personal relationships. You know the type where you converse about things happening in your life, job, Church, home and it is only goes to a certain point without getting to personal, right? You know, Intimate? That is the first type of relationship. This type of Personal relationship is also the start of our Relationship with Our Father in Heaven. Personal? Talking with Him about things going on in your life, etc. Praying and conversing with Him about your “perceived” needs, wants and desires!! That is great and should be a top Priority!! Again as Scripture states in many places and various ways; “Php 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” That is a Personal relationship!!!

But now I would like to share a deeper Truth. A deeper relationship! One of Intimacy. A relationship that goes beyond that of just a Personal level!! You know what Intimacy means? Let us define it first. Intimacy is aclose, familiar, and usually affectionate or loving personal relationship with another person or group. 2. a close associationwithor detailed knowledge or deep understanding of a place or subject.

Now with that definition in mind let me ask a question. Do you have a desire to grow closer to your Father in Heaven? A desire to be more Intimate with Him? Let’s face it, He Sure wants that type of Intimacy with you. Let us listen to Scripture and see if He will not speak to your heart concerning this topic. “John 4:23 “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

24 “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” The father is seeking Intimacy!! True Worshipers!! Here is another verse; “1Peter 5:6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,

7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” Doesn’t that sound more intimate? Knowing that Our Father cares about every aspect of our lives should really cause us to pause and consider our response. We should seek a “deeper” relationship with the Lover of our souls! You know, complete openness! Complete Trust! Such Intimacy should come from Maturing in the Faith of Jesus Christ. We should consider what Jesus said when He stated the Father is “seeking” such intimacy with us! Can Born Again believers just stay on a Personal lever and never grow into a more Intimate relationship? Yes, this is possible of course and happens all to often. Maybe this Psalm could speak to our hearts; Psalm 37:3 “Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.

4 Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.

6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.” Should we not Desire to be in a deeper Relationship with God? YES!! How about considering this as a step from “personal” to “intimate.” Matthew 6:5 ¶ “And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.

6 “But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.” Get One on one with the Father! Wait for Him to hug you!! Wait for Him to whisper in your ear, “I Love you!” He will you know if you desire a deeper connection to Him!! I would like to share one last verse that shows how our heart’s ought to be toward our Father. “Psalm 42:1 ¶ <<To the Chief Musician. A Contemplation of the sons of Korah.>> As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God.

2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?” Again listen to the Intimacy that we can have; “Psalm 42:7 Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me.

8 The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me-A prayer to the God of my life.”

Yes, seek God and you shall find Him!! You will find He is right where you are!! He invites you to first a Personal relationship through Faith in His Son Jesus the Christ!! But then He invites you to a deeper and more Intimate relationship with Him!!! Let us come and sup with our Maker!!! Our Father!!! The Father is waiting for you to mature from just a personal level relationship to a Much deeper Intimate one!!! Let us not make excuses!! Let us Drink of the Wellspring of Holiness!!!
