When is he coming again?

Good evening.
The Bible speaks of the end times:
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭24:4-13‬ ‭KJV‬‬
That’s pretty timely if you ask this ol Pawpaw! 

Irrelevant? That’s what the world is trying to teach our generation regarding the Sacred Word Of GOD!

But read the Scriptures again, is there not starling news that you can see as if it were tomorrow’s newspaper?
The Inspirations sing a song I consider to be one of their very best and they will sing it night after night and it never grows old.

” 🎶 Jesus is coming soon! 

Morning or night or noon.

Many will meet their doom, trumpets will sound!🎶🎶🎶
Do you hear the warning? It’s just like the book said!!! And we thought it was a man made dogma.

But the Word of GOD declares he is coming. 

The warnings whether we believe them or not point to His soon return.

I for one need no new revelation. No further evidence. 

I’m a blood bought child of GOD who anxiously awaits the soon appearing of The Lord Jesus Christ!!

Whether it’s tonight tomorrow or whenever….

I BELIEVE HE’S COMING BACK LIKE HE SAID!!!
Good night.

Right with God

Good evening.
The Bible says:
“Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:9‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Cleansing…..
🎼 What can wash away my sin.

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

What can make me whole again…

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Oh Precious is thy flow

That makes me

White as snow

No other fount I know nothing but the blood of Jesus.

 Jesus said it I believe it and it’s so!!!

No other fount that means nothing has the cleansing power of that Crimson flow.
When Jesus bore our sin and shame on the old rugged cross our sins nailed him to that cross but the blood that was shed from that ol cross made the difference for me!!!
“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭64:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬
You ll never make it on your own.
Good night.

Prayermeetin night

Good morning.

The Bible says:

“Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.”

‭‭James‬ ‭4:2-3‬ ‭KJV‬‬
It’s Wednesday, October 5, 2016.

Hump day. What the old timers once called Prayermeetin night.

Remember? When faithful church members would congregate …. Where? 

Well, not at the ballpark or the Gym. Not in the back yard or out on the boat.

No, there was a time you could tell who was the real deal in a church by their presence at Wednesday night Prayermeetin.

It was where the ” backbone” of the church could be located.

Sunday mornin is a showcase. If they come at all they will come on Sunday mornin I’ve heard many a pastor say.

Sunday night? Well it used to be kinda like Sunday morning but not as committed. There would be some empty seats .

Well tomorrow is a work day and I need my rest was the excuse often given.

Truth being , it was Probably Bonanza or Gunsmoke, or Sundaynight Football that actually was the culprit.

After so many years there have been many churches who have given up on Sunday night services as well as Prayermeetin nights due to a lack of attendance and interest.
Man can you remember all the good singing and preaching you used to hear at those meetings? Well they seem to have gone the same route of the old fashioned revival…. Too much worldly conflict and too little interest and time for GOD.
But there’s a few things that have increased as one can tell.
The drama that’s been going on at churches today. Where people have a difficult time with that ” Love Thy Neighbor as thy Self ” thing that The Lord talked about so much while He was here.

And then there’s that prayer list. Boy has it ever grown.

Family problems, Sickness,lost careers, financial difficulties, substance abuses, children having babies….. Divorce. Just to name a few requests.
Man…..there’s so much more to pray about these days …….
Wonder why?
Could ….GOD be ….telling us something?
Have a Heavenly Day.

Call the Nations back to God!

Good morning.
The Ol Devil is our adversary.

He is not our ally.

We fail to recognize the truth of that statement.

The Course of humanity has long followed his treacherous path and it leads to destruction.
Ignorance of GODs teaching or sheer failure to believe or obey Gods commands has often left us in hot water as history has proven.
But God has been Faithful. He is still true to His promises even though our world has turned to idolatry and corruption.
The bible says:

“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:31‬ ‭KJV‬‬
If we would only believe and trust that verse!

The Bible speaks of Prophets. When the Kings and leaders of the day became corrupt and full of idolatry,( like today), God sent Prophets. 

Their job was to Call the Nation back to GOD.

Their voice was clear, filled with warning. 

 We must be like those prophets of old. Call This nation back to GOD !!! 

For God is still merciful. 

There is still hope!!

Pray for America!!!
Have a Heavenly Day.

Make sure

‘Twas a great morning .Church was a joy !!! 

Preacher preached a gem and the devil was blistered!!

Hallelujah love it when that happens!

All in all we heard some old time gospel singing and great ol time preachin and God did the rest!!

Altar was busy with confession after confession.
Question of the day ” DO YOU KNOW FOR SURE YOU ARE SAVED?”. 

Man that’ll get your attention!

God sent old time conviction 

The Message from God s Word today is that we should not be deceived! 

This is a know so salvation…. something you should be sure of . No guessing games here! Make sure you know you’re saved!! 

It’s so easy, trust and believe his Word!
And when the battles over we shall wear a crown

In the New Jerusalem!!!

Make sure you’re sins are forgiven.

Good night.

A song of Praise

Good morning.
It’s Sunday. THE LORD’s DAY!!

Let us rejoice!!! Sing a song Preach the WORD! Love our neighbor. Let the Praises begin!!
🎼 If I could sing a thousand melodies I’d sing and never cease ” HOW GREAT MY GOD”!!

I’d sing of love, His wisdom might and Power, each day and passing hour, I’d sing of HIM!!
🎼 The Lord has been so good to me He let my captive spirit free, old things have passed away! ALL THINGS ARE NEW TODAY!

He gave me light when paths were dim oh How I’ve changed since I found Him I’m living in a brand new world SINCE THE LORD SAVED ME!!!!
THANK GOD I AM FREE, FREE, FREE FROM THIS WORLD OF SIN!!!! WASHED IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS I’VE BEEN BORN AGAIN!! HALLELUJAH I’M saved saved saved by His wonderful Grace!!!!

I’m so glad that i found out, he would bring me out, THROUGH HIS HOLY NAME!!!!PTL!!
The Bible says:
“Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:19-20‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Let everything that hath Breath PRAISE THE LORD!!! PS 150:6!
Have a Heavenly Day.

Walking close to Thee

Good day.
Just a closer walk with Thee.

Grant it Jesus is my plea.

Daily walkin close to Thee 

Let it be Dear Lord, Let it be
Did you walk close with the Lord today? Did you talk to Him?

He s the real deal isn’t he?

Never a man spake like this man.

There’s no other name given among men whereby we must be saved than at His name.
Jesus, you might not now to him here…. But you will one day.

One day, you will.
Just a closer walk with Thee

grant it Jesus is my plea

Dailey walking close to Thee….
That’s what it takes ….

Walkin daily. It’s the only way to get to know him.
Good night.

Real Change 

Good morning.
Beautiful autumn morning .

Sunshine cool crisp air…. It’s gonna be a great day!
Have a statement released years ago that bares repeating this morning.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8-10‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Unmerited favor undeserved mercy . Thank God for His Amazing Grace!!

I once was lost but now I’M found read was blind but now I see!!
I didn’t buy it I couldn’t earn it 

It was a gift! 

God Gave me that gift and no one else!!

It’s the Plan of Salvation in its simplicity. 

You can’t adjust it to suit your lifestyle and you can reject it but you will pay the consequences. 

God is HOLY. He won’t tolerate sinfulness. He will judge sin.
He created us in his likeness. His will is for us to live uprightly and do good works;

To walk in His righteousness.

It is revealed in His Word. 
Our stubborn will takes us into the bondage of sin. We cannot save ourselves from it.

Jesus is that only way we can be set free from our sin.

Are you free today?

Do you know the Lord Jesus ? 

A personal relationship with Him can change your life!

How bout it? Try Jesus for a real Change!!
Have a Heavenly Day.

fighting till my last!

Good morning.
Man did I need that rest last night. Thank you Lord so much.
Hard day yesterday, works came down and trials followed all the day long. 

Yes I have those kind of days .

The ol Devil Is relentless .

He’s all the time picking on me!

But as my dear ol bro often says, “I’m not gonna give him a saddle to ride me on!!”.lol.

No he’s gonna have a fight out of this ol boy.

The crowd tells me why don’t you give in or up or out?

Why not quit and be done with it .

Have in my lifetime had career op after op offered that would take me off the road. Oh you’d make a fortune the ol Devil adds.

Just don’t be so “religious”…

Turn your head at certain things.

Compromise and “let it go” as a popular term goes these days.
Sounds alluring doesn’t it?

But I recall From Gods Word something that makes that all smell to high heAven if you pardon my drift….
“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

‭‭Mark‬ ‭8:36-38‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Yep I knew it. All that other advice is just … Noise!!

Nope won’t go there. Not on my watch

I’m not givin up or in or out!!!

I’m fighting till I’ve drawn my last!!! And when the battles over we shall wear a crown in that new JERUSALEM!!!
Have a Heavenly Day.

Conscience

Good morning.
Well PTL for the rain the Good Lord sent our way. I forgot what it was like till it came reminding me yesterday afternoon.heehee
Just as the song says it was ” Right on Time.
The Bible says:

“For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭KJV‬‬
There’s an ad often used by vacation promos you’ve heard say ” What goes on in Vegas Stays in Vegas”. 

Well that’s just not true. The ol Devil lied again.

You can’t hide. Your secrets are open books to God . 

Oh the fun the ol rascal promotes…. Try it, who’s gonna know?
Many a shattered dream has started off with that advice.

You should listen to The Lord before you make your mind up to leap into sin.

God warns us ” Be sure your sin will find you out!” Num 32:23.

Yes neighbor your secrets are an open book to GOD.

He saw what you did. He heard he knows. You just can’t hide from God.
I’ve talked to many a sinner tears flowing like raindrops down at an old fashioned altar. Heart convicted, shame, guilt….what’s that?! You mean the ol Devil didn’t tell you about that? Well it’s not a surprise.

Yes indeed, sin brings that awful feeling of guilt, and shame….

It’s called a conscience. Something our Creator built inside us.

Now you don’t hear much about that today but it’s the soul speaking out … Conviction is horrible when you are under its grip but it’s a beautiful thing in the fact that it is honest with you . It doesn’t just pat you on the back and tell you your ok.

It reminds you over And over what you have done. Every detail. You will remember details that consciously you didn’t even know you were doing . But conscience will give a vivid replay over and over.

God uses conviction to disturb us about that sin.

So 6 – 12 weeks down the road there’s this little voice that rises up “remember that night in Vegas”??? ( And the Devil told you it all stayed in Vegas)
But praise God, Old time conviction will draw you to Christ Jesus, if seasoned with a little thoughtful prayer by caring saints of God that are on the mainline of heaven beckoning the Saviors hand upon another soul dying in sin!
Yes yes I remember tear filled eye after tearfilled eye repenting begging God to forgive …. And I’ve seen the joy rush into their hearts that would light their face up like a bright Sun shiny day after a stormy night.
This morning is a good time .

Turn that ol sin over to God. He knows the devil played you like a drum in a parade. 

He knows you’re heart and he sent that tug at your heart ..

So let Him have his way today. 

He will change yours.
Have a Heavenly Day.
