In the beginning God said let there be, and it was!
From the smallest creature to the biggest, it is all the handiwork of GOD.The gnat clear up to all of the multiple galaxies spread throughout the known and the unknown universe. Before there was anything, there was GOD and He simply spoke it all into existence.Evolution a theory concocted by those who would have you believe that humans are merely an ape without a tail,if this be true why have we not evolved into a superhuman race without the need of a god. Atheists are simply nothing because they believe in nothing. I would rather believe in God and die and find out that He doesn't exist, than to not believe in God and die and find out that He does exist.An old cliche says nothing ventured nothing gained,whereas belief in God is something ventured and gain beyond mans wildest dreams. Many would try to teach you their beliefs about the hereafter and how it is gained, but I submit to you the Way of the Cross through Jesus Christ as the only Way. Try it you'll like it and you will be eternally blessed. Jesus and Jesus only, the One Way to Heaven.
We like sheep have gone astray, Jesus for one lost sheep died on the Cross of Calvary and that one lost sheep was this old Marine,when only eleven years old.I have been saved ever since and will remain so until the Rapture when Jesus comes for His Church or I leave this life by way of the grave. Once saved always saved I will proclaim until Jesus tells me I am wrong and I really don't think He will do that, because He says in the book of John 10:27-My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 10:28-And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 10:29- My Father,who gave them to Me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. 10:30-I and my Father are one." Red letter words spoken by Jesus", and I will take what He says about Salvation above all.

Roms. 12:9- Let love be without dissimulation.Abhor that which is evil; Cleave to that which is good.
America's major problem today is not one of race or prejudice,it is all a matter of love.Without dissimulation means without pretense or with-out hypocrisy.We are to love one another as Christ loved the Church and that is regardless of race,color or creed.As Jesus loves us so must we love all men/women.Christians above all others should love this way,Jesus was Faithful unto death and loved those who crucified Him just as much as those of His own family and His followers.He died for the love of all men/women.Once for all,and He is coming back for His own."The Church".
Cross covered hill,but only the cross of Calvary made a difference to mankind!
"The Gentle Shepherd"
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.
The two verses to the left are definite and positive statements for the existence of an Almighty God.If He does exist we as His creation are answerable to Him and to Him alone! If He does not exist we do not have to answer to anyone! Each of us must decide for ourselves the answer to the If question. Only by faith and faith alone can we arrive at the answer to the If question ?
Hebs.11:1- Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,the evidence of things not seen. Hebs.11:6-But without faith it is impossible to please Him:For he that cometh to God must believe that He is;and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hebs.12:2-Look unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
The essence of faith consists in believing and receiving what God has revealed, and may be defined as that trust in the God of the scriptures and in Jesus Christ whom He has sent,which receives Jesus as Savior and Lord and impels one to loving obedience and good works. (Jn.1:12;James 2:14-26) The particular uses of faith give rise to it's secondary definitions:(1) For salvation,faith is personal trust,apart from meritorious works,in the Lord Jesus Christ as delivered for our offenses and raised again for our Justification (Roms.4:5; 5:1): (2) As used in prayer,faith is the"confidence that if we ask anything according to His will,He heareth us".(1Jn.5:14-15 ): (3) As used in reference to unseen things of which scripture speaks,faith gives"substance" to them,so that we act upon the conviction of their reality.(Heb.11:1-3)And;(4)Faith as a working principle in life as shown in Heb.11
"God's Amazing Grace"
Jn.1:17- For the law was given by Moses,but Grace came by Jesus Christ.(1) Grace is" the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man...not by works of righteousness which we have done...being justified by His Grace"(Titus 3:4,5,7). As a principle,therefore,Grace is set in contrast with Law(Rom.11:6),under which God demands righteousness from men,as,under Grace,He gives righteousness to men (Rom.3:21-24;8:3-4;Gal.2:16;Phil.3:9).Law is connected with Moses and works; ; Grace,with Christ and faith(Jn.1:17;Rom.10:4-10).Under Law blessings accompany obedience(Deut.(28:1-6);Grace bestows blessings as a free gift (Rom.4:3-5;Eph.2:8).(2) In its fullness,Grace began with the ministry of Christ,involving His death and resurrection,for He came to die for sinners(Jn.1:17.Mt.11:28-30;Mt.16:21;Mt.20-28;Rom.3:24-26;4:24-25).Under the former dispensation,Law was shown to be powerless to secure righteousness and life for a sinful race(3:21-22).Prior to the cross man's salvation was through faith(Gen.15:6;Rom.4:3),being grounded on Christ's atoning sacrifice,viewed anticipatively by God(Rom.3:25),now it is clearly revealed that salvation and righteousness are received faith in the crucified and resurrected Savior(Jn.1:12-13;5:24;1Jn.5:11-13),with holiness of life and good works following as the fruit of salvation(Jn.15:16;Rom.8:24;Eph.2:8-10;Titus 2:11-14). (3) There was Grace before Christ came,as witnessed by the provision of sacrifice for sinners(Exd.20:24-26,Lev.5:17-18;17:11).The difference between the former age and the present age,therefore,is not a matter of no Grace and some Grace,but rather that today Grace reigns(Rom.5:21),in the sense that the only being who has a right to judge sinners(Jn.5:22) is now seated upon a throne of Grace(Heb.4:14-16),not imputing unto the world their trespasses(2Cor.5:19).In summation God's Amazing Grace includes saving Grace,forgiving Grace,sanctifying Grace,enduring or long suffering Grace,keeping Grace,living Grace and when one comes to the end of their life they will find dying Grace.So in the seven Graces found in God's Amazing Grace we have complete Grace or perfect Grace,seven being the number of completeness or perfection.

" A Conversation"
In the depths of my finite and puny human mind,I picture a conversation between God and His son Jesus.They are seated at the table which they have prepared for all who believe to partake of the marriage supper of the Lamb.God looks at His son Jesus and says, Son I have a question for you.Jesus being a loving faithful and obedient son,says what is it dad?God then says,Son you walked amongst the humans which we created, where did we go wrong?Jesus ponders the question! Finally He says,gee Dad I don't think we went wrong,we created them in perfection gave them free will and gave them everything that we possess and enjoy.I suppose that they are simply disobedient children who do not know or take seriously the consequences of their disobedience,we even gave them a perfect example of an obedient child"Me"I was faithful and obedient unto death upon an "Old rugged cross' for their disobedience,what more could we have done?We gave them perfect love,some believed,but sadly the majority rejected Me,but you know Dad we still love them.This article comes from the heart of one who accepted that perfect love as a young boy of eleven years old,and I praise God that His perfect love has,"never left me nor forsaken me".That perfect love is Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord who dwells within my heart.Without Him I am nothing and have nothing that is worthwhile.This is an apt definition of a lost person or an atheist ,who knows not Jesus Christ in the free pardon of sin as their Savior and Lord.Notice I put Savior first, for He cannot be the Lord of your life without becoming your Savior.He chooses to save you,making Him the Lord of your life is your choice.Almighty God will not make you be saved and most assuredly Satan cannot keep you from being saved! May God Bless!
Down here while driving you may see road signs with an arrow pointing in one direction with the words "one way".
The law requires that we follow the arrow on the sign. There are many rules and regulations which require us to go or do things in"One Way".
There are consequences to disobeying rules and regulations or laws. In the Holy Bible Jesus Christ also makes a
statement about "One Way". In John 14:16- Jesus saith unto him, I am The way,the truth and the life; no man cometh unto the Father,but by Me.There is only "One Way" to get to Heaven.Your access to Heaven is through
and by the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary.His death assures you forgiveness for sin and His
resurrection secures your Salvation. As with human laws there are consequences,so are there with God's laws.
Acceptance or rejection of Jesus Christs offer determines your eternal destiny.Acceptance means Heaven,
rejection means Hell. One must make the decision himself, God won't make it for you and Satan can't make it for you,it is your decision and yours alone! I pray that you make the right decision! See you in Heaven?????
