Don’t mention it

About to step into one of those “off limits”/ “hard to swallow” discussions again. Having seen this video this morning, felt convicted to encourage friends to read the Word of God for yourselves. The Bible is very clear that there is no other name under heaven by which we can be saved but by the name of Jesus. We don’t need additional mediators, we don’t need to pray to dead saints, there is direct access to God. (Acts 4:12, Hebrews 4:16, 1 Timothy 2:5)

We are all created by God, but not everyone is part of the Family of God. Being a child of God is upon receiving Christ, as the verse below (and more like it) clearly states.
“But to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God” – John 1:12

“Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” – 1 John 5:12

Believing in love doesn’t mean we must accept someone else’s worldview. One can still love and have different convictions. The video below tells of a very false and dangerous gospel, seasoned with some truths so that it “sells”.

“How then can they call on the One they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach?” – Romans 10:14

All roads lead to God in judgement but not all roads lead to Heaven. On that day, we will either hear one of the two “welcome, faithful servant” OR “depart from Me, I never knew you”.

Don’t follow the crowd in exchange for your eternity. Not because everyone is doing something, doesn’t mean it’s right. Help us Jesus.
Know Jesus, know eternal life. Be very blessed.

Another Year In His Grace

It’s 2012! Another year to serve Him Who gives life. I pray this year instead of growing weary in our walk, that we will see this new year as another opportunity to have deeper and more meaningful fellowship with the Lord God. secretariatToday I was moved by the Spirit of the Father speaking through the pastor today. What remains with me was the reference of a famous race horse who runs faster and faster the further and nearer to the end he got. The pastor implored whether we ourselves (even in our old age) want to “grow stronger and better and more faithful to God; year by year to grow in grace and exceed in the year we’ve done before”. Should we “dear to be satisfied with last year’s results?” The pastor went on to beseech us: “by the grace of God to run faster in the next quarter mile or however long God gives to us”. The sermon was based off the Biblical account of Enoch, the faithful one who walked with God for 300 years! Wow. Isn’t that amazing? May we be challenged to endure as Enoch did.

Listen to the sermon Life and Death (Genesis 5:1-32)
