Better is one day in His Courts than a thousand elsewhere...

After watching the news, listening to some of our fav. pastors whom we trust, time is short.  I know, I sound like a resounding gong.  But this is serious business.  You knowing Jesus is serious business!  Your relationship with Jesus is so important. 

 If you don't know him, pray this simple prayer: Father, I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins.  I believe that He rose from the dead so I can live with Him forever.  I ask you to forgive me of my sins, Lord, Help me to forgive myself for what I hold inside that is against others.  I ask that you come into my heart and be the Lord (boss) of my life.  I confess with my mouth that I am born again.  Thank you for saving me.  In Jesus Name, Amen.

One of the benefits with having a relationship with Jesus, is he has sent a comforter, the Holy Spirit.  Here's the prayer for the Holy Spirit to come in and set you on fire for the Word and for your new life!  Are you ready for a life change? 

 Pray this and really give your life over to the HOLY SPIRIT.  Pray: Father, the Bible promises that I can receive the free gift of the Holy Spirit.  You want me to have it more than I do.  I ask You in the name of Jesus to fill me with your Holy Spirit, and I receive it now!  Thank you, Father in the name of Jesus, Amen! 

Jesus said He would send us a comforter when he left for heaven.  The Holy Spirit is not only the comforter, he is the teacher, our conscience, helps us in our right standing.  Without the Holy Spirit within us, we can't figure out the Word of God correctly.  We can't feel the presence of the Lord in our soul, when this presence comes over you, you know you are in the presence of the Lord.  The Shekeniah glory can be felt in this arena.  The other special gift that comes with the Holy Spirit is a heavenly language.  This language is understood by God.  It can change your prayer life.  Ask God for this heavenly language, believe that you receive and spit the utterances out.  Sometimes it sounds crazy and you aren't sure if you got it or not. 

For me, I have doubted I had it, but when we went to corporate worship, I heard someone else with the same dialect as my own.  I was so excited to know I had finally received it through faith. 

Last night we were watching TBN and a young man was told the same thing I was, God said to "teach them My Word". 

So, that is my new mission here.  I want you to know where we are physically, but I want to know where you are spiritually.  My heart so wants others to know the peace of Jesus. 

In my Bible study, I came to this this morning:

This is where we are right now! We have been watching the news, the fear that is spread everywhere, the lies told by many but really Look at really where we are, get the truth. Out of all the news channels, we have watched all,  FOX News is telling the truth- not because we want to hear particulars but the truth, the others have been purchased and bought out by the progressives (unbelievers who really want one world order).
Now please read this, study it, look at it, ask the Holy Spirit to explain it to you.

2 Thessalonians 2

The Great Apostasy
 1 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ[a] had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin[b] is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God[c] in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He[d] who now restrains will do so until He[e] is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Stand Fast
13 But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, 14 to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle (letter).
16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, 17 comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (New King James Version)

The Comfort of Christ’s Coming
13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep (died), lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.[a]
15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 (New King James Version)

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies. 21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil.
Blessing and Admonition
23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

Think on these words,

Psalm 106

Joy in Forgiveness of Israel’s Sins
 1 Praise the LORD!
         Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
         For His mercy endures forever.
 2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD?
         Who can declare all His praise?
 3 Blessed are those who keep justice,
         And he who does[a] righteousness at all times!
 4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favor You have toward Your people.
         Oh, visit me with Your salvation,
 5 That I may see the benefit of Your chosen ones,
         That I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation,
         That I may glory with Your inheritance.
 6 We have sinned with our fathers,
         We have committed iniquity,
         We have done wickedly.
 7 Our fathers in Egypt did not understand Your wonders;
         They did not remember the multitude of Your mercies,
         But rebelled by the sea—the Red Sea.
 8 Nevertheless He saved them for His name’s sake,
         That He might make His mighty power known.
 9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it dried up;
         So He led them through the depths,
         As through the wilderness.
 10 He saved them from the hand of him who hated them,
         And redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
 11 The waters covered their enemies;
         There was not one of them left.
 12 Then they believed His words;
         They sang His praise.
 13 They soon forgot His works;
         They did not wait for His counsel,
 14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness,
         And tested God in the desert.
 15 And He gave them their request,
         But sent leanness into their soul.
 16 When they envied Moses in the camp,
         And Aaron the saint of the LORD,
 17 The earth opened up and swallowed Dathan,
         And covered the faction of Abiram. (these were  the complainers) 18 A fire was kindled in their company;
         The flame burned up the wicked.
 19 They made a calf in Horeb,
         And worshiped the molded image.
 20 Thus they changed their glory
         Into the image of an ox that eats grass.
 21 They forgot God their Savior,
         Who had done great things in Egypt,
 22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham,
         Awesome things by the Red Sea.
 23 Therefore He said that He would destroy them,
         Had not Moses His chosen one stood before Him in the breach,
         To turn away His wrath, lest He destroy them.
 24 Then they despised the pleasant land;
         They did not believe His word,
 25 But complained in their tents,
         And did not heed the voice of the LORD.
 26 Therefore He raised His hand in an oath against them,
         To overthrow them in the wilderness,
 27 To overthrow their descendants among the nations,
         And to scatter them in the lands.
you can read the rest for yourself!

We love ya, we want the very best for you.  
We don't want this to happen to anyone! It will be too late then to change your mind!
