Salvation- It is eternal, everlasting and forever. Cannot be lost, sold, bought or given away. It is your one way ticket to Heaven bought and paid for by Jesus on the Cross of Calvary. Any other way put forth by man or any religion is simply a slippery path to a devil's hell. No religion can get you to Heaven, only a personal relationship with the One who died on Calvary, Jesus Christ the Son of God. God the father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
DNA= Deoxyribonucleic Acid which determines human traits such as color of eyes, hair and many other things that make up an individual human being. Function of DNA is to store hereditary information and regulate the expression of this information: GENES=the units of hereditary in living organisms encoded into the DNA or RNA.- GENOMES =The Genome is the whole hereditary information of an organism that is encoded in DNA.-RNA=Ribonucleic Acid which in the living cell transmits the genetic information coded in the DNA and acts as a template for protein synthesis. When God saves a person He reprograms that person with a new or improved DNA known as Divine Natural Ability. This endows the one saved with the ability to do what God calls him to do, teach, preach, witness or whatever God desires us to do.There is no such thing as I can't do it in a saved person's life, because God has equipped them with all the tools needed to accomplish Gods will in his life. As stated by the Apostle Paul in the book of Philippians 4:13-I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.Therefore, for a saved child of the King all things are possible.
The life you live is watched by those that you daily come in contact with and the saying is that "the only Bible some people read is your life". May you live a life that shows forth your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
"BE YE DOERS"
James 1:22---"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves."To truly be a doer one must apply that which has been heard from God's word in his or her life.To have a better understanding of how to be a doer we must define the word, or in this case we will look at doer in its plural form to cover all:
(1) D--DAILY SERVICE TO GOD
(2) O--OBEDIENCE TO GOD
(3) E--ENDLESS PRAYER TO GOD
(4) R--RIGHTEOUS LIVING FOR GOD
(5) S--SOUL SEEKERS FOR GOD
For one to be all he/she can be for God, you must be a faithful doer of God's word. May God Bless! jcurlysarge
"With open arms He awaits you."
Jesus Christ the Son of God,even very God Himself will split the eastern sky,coming for His Church the body of Christ.Those who have believed upon His atoning work upon the cross of Calvary and His bodily resurrection, repented of their sins and received Him into their hearts as their Savior and Lord.Known as salvation.We who are saved,are called believers,members of the Church the Body of Christ.We meet our Savior in the air and go home with Him to Heaven,where we ever shall be with our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ Eternally.Known to all believers as the Rapture of the Church. Only the saved go to Heaven it is a free choice. Hell, like Heaven is a free choice made by each individual.God sends no one to Hell.Heaven and Hell are both a choice made by the individual.I know where I am going,it is Heaven,please come and go with me! jcurlysarge AKA James Gary Grant
" Only the death of Jesus Christ on the "Old Rugged Cross of Calvary" was sufficient to pay the debt of sin which was owed by mankind.He died once for all,all being every human that has ever lived and that will ever live until He returns.Once saved always saved!
"Jesus Christ"(God) Is the Great Physician the divine healer, but He gives man the knowledge to be Doctor's and therefore healers in His stead.Example: Luke was a Doctor and also believer And follower of Jesus Christ(God).He gives us the common sense to go to Doctors when we are sick.The ultimate healing is when Jesus saves the soul and bodily sickness we will suffer as long as we are in this earthly tabernacle.Our body is kind of like a car it will run a lot longer if we take care of it ,and get a tune-up when needed,check the oil,and take it to the mechanic (Doctor) when needed.
"A question posed for those who are in Christ Jesus is! What should we as an Individual in Christ be like?For the answer one only needs to define the word Christ, which I will do for you free of charge! (1) C: a caring individual. (2) H: an honest individual. (3) R: a responsible individual.(4) I: an inspiring individual. (5) S: a sincere individual. (6) T: a truthful individual. If one does not meet all of the above in his or her walk with and in Christ,they should get the broken part fixed by asking and receiving Christ's assured Forgiveness!
"IN CHRIST JESUS"
"The Way,The Truth,and The Life"
Jn.14:6-Jesus saith unto him,(Thomas) I am the Way,the Truth,and the Life:no man cometh unto the Father,but by me.
Lord help me to always walk in your Way and for someone each day to pray.To ever declare that which you say.Help me in life to ever proclaim your Truth,for thou Lord art the only Truth.May I live what to you is a pleasing Life.May the Life I live for You influence someone to accept you as Savior and Lord, the author and finisher of our Faith, giver of blessed Eternal Life.In Jesus Christ only is the right Way,the right Truth,and the right Life.The choice is personal no one else can make it for you,not even Almighty God Himself.As the saying goes,my friend the ball is in your court and today is the hour of Salvation! Til proven otherwise,your friend.jcurlysarge AKA James Gary Grant
"God's Mathematical Formula for the study of His Word"
(1)Rev.22:18-For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book,If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book;
(2)Rev.22:19=And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy,God shall take away his part out of the book of life,and out of the holy city,and from the things which are written in this book.
(3)2Tim.2:15-Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,rightly dividing the word of truth.
(4)2Pet.1:2-Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God,and of Jesus,our Lord.
When we take care of the first three God will honor us with multiplied blessings which we do not deserve,for He is a loving God!
"God and He alone is Awesome"
"Jesus is God,Very God"
" The Way of the Cross"
Many different religions would try to present to you a way to Heaven other than by the Way of the Cross of Calvary.There is only one Way and it is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ upon the old rugged Cross of Calvary.Any way other than the Cross of Calvary will simply take you to a Devil's Hell,prepared solely for Satan and the angels who rebelled with him.The blood of Jesus shed upon the Cross of Calvary is the only remedy provided by God.Choose Jesus and gain Heaven,reject Him and it gains you Hell. This comes from a heart of love.Choose Jesus and meet me in Heaven!
"Going Home to Heaven"
Jesus walked all the way for you,how far have you walked for Him?
Don't add to,don't subtract from,rightly divide & let God multiply.
" The Great I Am"
Let me introduce you to Jesus,the "Great I Am" of the Holy Bible! God Himself. With the use of Scripture we will show you that Jesus is,God.
Gen.1:1-In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Jn.1:1-In the beginning was the Word,and the Word was with God,and the Word was God.
Jn.1:3-All things were made by Him;and without Him was not anything made that was made.
The purpose of the Gospel of John is found in Jn. 20:31 and is.
Jn.20:31- But these are written,that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ,the Son of God;and that believing ye might have life through His name.
Only the Gospel of John records the Seven Great "I Am" declarations of Christ.Seven in Scripture being the number of completion, they are: (1) Jn.6:35- "I Am" the bread of life; (2) Jn.7:12- "I Am" the light of the world;(3) Jn.10:7-"I Am" the door of the sheep;(4) Jn.10:11-"I Am" the Good Shepherd;(5) Jn.11:25-"I Am" the resurrection and the Life;(6) Jn.14:6"I Am"the Way,the Truth,and the Life;(7)"I Am" the Vine;
We began in the Old Testament and to weave this article together and make the connection to the one God of the Bible we go back to the O.T. where we find in the book of Exodus God's commissioning of Moses to lead the children of Israel out of their bondage to the Egyptians.When told what to do by God,Moses asked God who shall I say sent me?God said as recorded in Exd.3:14-"And God said unto Moses,I Am that I Am:and He said ,thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel,"I Am" hath sent me unto you". "I Am" is the eternal name of God.and it is Jehovah in Hebrew.In this initial self-identification of God it is of great significance that the verb is in the first person; the speaker names Himself thus emphasizing His personal identification.
Meanwhile back in the New Testament we have Jesus making a very bold statement in; Jn.8:58- Jesus said unto them,verily, verily,I say unto you,before Abraham was "I Am". The Pharisees knowing the Scriptures,realized That Jesus was claiming to be God.As seen in Jn.8:59,they sought to kill Him,but could not,it was not yet His time.
Mt.1:24-Behold,a virgin shall be with child,and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel,which being interpreted is,God with us.
Almighty God Himself in the person of Jesus Christ came to this earth.He was born of a Virgin,lived a sinless life and was crucified on the cross of Calvary for the sin of Mankind.On the third and appointed day,as He said He would, He resurrected.Love took Him to the cross,Love kept Him on the cross and because of His Amazing Grace He came forth triumphant over death,Hell and the grave. His love for mankind is without merit,freely given on Calvary.Hopefully this article will help those who know not who Jesus is,He is Almighty God Himself.Always remember this "Eternity is a long time to be wrong".
"Jesus is Knocking at your hearts door invite Him in".
Don't walk in front of me,I may not follow; Don't walk behind me, I may not lead: Walk beside me and be my friend.
Walk daily with Jesus and you will always have a friend at your side who will never leave you nor forsake you. He will lead you in the pathways of righteousness for His names sake. Love,Obey and Trust Him,for He is your dearest friend forever.
What is Prayer? Basically it is a conversation with God.It can either be a prayer of praise or a petition for ones needs.They are also a form of worship as denoted by the use of the term "hallowed be thy name" found in the model prayer,which is commonly called "the Lord's prayer". There are different types of prayer. (1) Secret prayer: in Mt.6:6-It says,"But thou, when thou prayest,enter into thy closet,and when thou hast shut thy door,pray to thy Father which is in secret;and thy father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. The reason for secret prayer is for one to get closer to God, without any worldly distractions. Not all prayer is secret prayer. Secret prayer is the most intimate prayer of all,where one can pour out their heart to God without interruption.God already knows our innermost thoughts and all of our needs,but He wants us to bring them to Him in prayer.(2) Social prayer:As in family prayer.(3) Social prayer:Such as public prayer and prayer in worship services. (4) (4)Intercessory prayer:Prayers for the needs of others,which is commanded in Js.5:14 and Lk.18:1-And He spake a parable unto them to this end,that men ought always to pray,and not to faint; The word pray or prayer is used 1,894 times in scripture,showing the need for one to pray. What is the proper posture or position for one to assume when they pray? (1)1Tim.2:8- I will therefore,that men pray everywhere,lifting up holy hands,without wrath and doubting. (2)Acts 20:36-And when He had thus spoken,He knelt down,and prayed with them. (3)Lk.22:41-And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast,and kneeled down and prayed.(4)Mk.11:25-And when ye stand praying,forgive,if ye have ought against any:that your Father also which is in Heaven may forgive you your trespasses (5)Mt.26:39-And He went a little further,and fell on His face,and prayed,(6) Ps.95:6-Oh come,let us worship and bow down;let us kneel before our maker.So we can see from these scriptures that prayer is important and the posture or position is really not relevant,but condition of ones heart and their relationship with the Heavenly Father God.With God the only prayer that are not answered are those which are vain,never prayed or outside the context of God's will.A popular gospel song says "take it to the Lord in prayer".The apostle Paul tell us in 1Thes.5:17-Pray without ceasing.Js.5:16-The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.Prayer is the key that opens the door to Heaven,and faith turns the key.May God Bless.
When one considers prayer it is imperative that we look at it in light of it's key ingredients. Just like when you make your favorite homemade vegetable soup,if you leave one of the main ingredients out your soup can wind up tasting yucky.Prayer is much like vegetable soup,leave out one of the main ingredients and it can become a vain prayer and oft times not answered.The following is a list of Biblical ingredients found in prayer.You might say a "recipe for prayer". Always use the 3 P's formula for prayer,persistence,perseverance and patience.(1) Acknowledgement of God as our Father. Found in the model prayer. Mt.6:9-13 (2) Worship of God also found in the model prayer. Mt.6:9-13.(3)For His Kingdom to come,also found in the model prayer. Mt.6:9-13.(4) Confidence in God's power and ability.(5) Belief,(A) That God can answer prayer.(B) That God will answer prayer.(6)Faith in the one to whom you are praying.(7) Humility,always remember your position in relation to God and others The Formula is (A) God first,(B) Others second and(C) Self last.(8)Forgiveness for both others.and self.(9) Persistence in your prayer, knowing that God will answer in His own time and not in yours. (10)Always remember your prayer must be framed within the context of God's will and not your own. (11) Prayer should be sincere and simple,just as Peter's was when Jesus bade him to come to Him walking on the water.When Peter began to sink he said Lord save me.(12) Prayer should always be made in the name Of Jesus. Jn.14:13-14.So for all of your problems,trials,tribulations and needs that you encounter in your life,try a little "Prayer Soup" and you will be pleasantly surprised at the results. Remember one thing unprayed prayers are unanswered prayers. May God Bless is my humble prayer for all who visit my web site. James Gary Grant
WHY does God say in Ps.14:1 and Ps.53:1-"The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity:there is none that doeth good.
To be offered eternal life with blessings and riches beyond compare and reject such an offer, truly they are a fool.
There is eternal life for every human being,the difference being the quality of that eternal life, the individual chooses whether it will be spent in Heaven with God or with Satan in Hell.
God in all of his wisdom and Grace has placed before all of Mankind a Cross called Calvary where His
Son Jesus died for all of mankind. Access to both Heaven and Hell is by way of that Cross called Calvary,
through and by the shed blood of Jesus Christ upon that cross. Atheists who so strongly oppose the very
existence of God and believe there is no Heaven or Hell will one day awake in a place of burning fire,where
the soul dieth not. I would rather believe in God and serve Him and die and find out that He doesn't exist, than to not believe in Him and die and find out that He does exist.For if there is no God it is no big deal,
but if there is a God it is a very with eternal consequences.Remember "Eternity is a long time to be wrong".
