ICorinthians 15:54 NKJV

“So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, & this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

Contagion and RescueHebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

What if I told you that an alien from another realm had infested the earth with a contagion?  Not only today but this terrorist had visited earth when mankind was in its infancy and maliciously altered our very genetic makeup by way of deception.  Once mighty and immortal creations made to rule this world, we were reduced to slaves of both flesh and a trading time for money system that only has us in a survival loop, in which only the select few prosper… Death and struggle replace life and prosperity.  Lawlessness is moral and politically correct.. truth, logic and order are considered evil and anyone who practice these things are considered either hateful or undesirable folks.  For those who live life in this age & have understanding about the story of Adam & Eve know..

Many today think that the great God that created us here would arbitrarily change His mind regarding the contagion of sin & death.. which was created in the lab of His enemy, Satan for the sole purpose of our destruction…rather then mount a rescue mission.  Unthinkable.

Imagine an Al-Qaida type terrorist getting a hold of a nuke and targeting a major city near you.  (God forbid of course)
You flip on CNN and the government is addressing the crisis.. “We have decided that a change of mind is the best choice of action.  Were going to legalize terrorism and we will allow this current situation to play out at the desire of the terrorist.  Our thoughts and prayers to the future victims families..”

This scenario defies logic.  This is however, what the modern-day political correct society and media are suggesting.  Some churches even advocate that God is accepting sin now and repentance is an old, long forgotten philosophy.  Man changes with the times.  Man is linear.  God is omnitemporal… meaning God has one foot in the past, He’s in the present and His other foot is in the future. His mind in all time never deviates as does man.

Don’t believe the hype my friends..Repentance is still in play and sin is sin, death is death.  One more God the Father sent us the antidote which is His only Son to die so we could continue to sin..so see you all at the casino for drinks & some drugs..right?  What you say..?  Jesus died..not so we could continue to sin.. but that we might be saved from it.  If we are saved from it why would we want to mess with it any longer?!  None are perfect here..this is true.  Equally as true is we can all say ‘I’m sorry’ to God when we mess up & we are all capable to practice Christianity.  Lawyers practice law but don’t win every case.. they keep on practice fail or victory. Relationship with Jesus is like that.  We fall, repent, get up, dust ourselves off & try again. In time, with prayer, practice & relationship improvements do come more natural.  Who wants a 2 dimensional relationship anyway??  Both should contribute, am I right?  Say sorry when you make a mistake, learn about each other everyday.  God desires to be with us with that thought in mind.  God created a beautiful world for us.  He had the greatest intentions and then the devil came to ruin all that by getting Adam and Eve to sin.  But He made them a promise and fulfilled it in Jesus when He came the first time.  He is coming back soon to rescue us from this sin sick world.  Will you chose today which side you will be on?  The invading alien destroyer or the God of infinite love and forgiveness… easter_Jesus Did it

Don’t you desire a change.. a clean life free from Satan’s virus?  Let God’s heart speak to you today: “As surely as I live, says the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of wicked people. I only want them to turn from their wicked ways so they can live. Turn! Turn from your wickedness… Why should you die?” Eze. 33:11 NLT

You may say, I’m a good person.. I’m fine.  Right?  We all fall short and sin.. not one is safe under the sun: “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23

The God of the universe calls you today and this very moment to commit or recommit your relationship with Him.  Repent and strip off the sin which holds you low.  Why give the enemy another precious minute?  God will wash you clean and accept you with open arms.  Say it with me now… “God, I am a sinner in need of your love.  I want to commit my life to you Jesus now and forever.  I accept what Jesus did on the cross and thank you for your victory over sin and death.  Please forgive me and wash me clean of all I have done in the past and help me to lead a Christian life from here forward.  In Jesus name we pray.  AMEN.”

If you prayed this prayer please contact us and let us connect you with a Bible believing church in your area.  May God bless you richly and may His face always shine down upon you.  He is coming back soon so keep looking up saints of God.  ~Pastor Pete

Acts 17:11 NKJV

“These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, & searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

HIStory? 'the BIBLE' review

Although I applaud the History channel for their quest to tell the stories of the Bible.. as many have pointed out, something just ain’t right…

So far we have seen the adventures of Abraham…up to the beginnings of the time of Jesus.  Now, I understand the importance of moving things along.. you must be very creative to take a thousand years worth of information & translate it to 6 hours or so.  I can appreciate the challenges production faces.. hats off to them for that effort.

For those who read the good book on a daily basis.. much detail & vital stories were omitted.  Also some situations were added that simply never happened.

The most obvious, for myself was Daniel’s story. I was not expecting every detail to be included.  Simply no time for this mini-series.. but make no mistake that Daniel was not terrified in the lions den.  Nor was he standing & praying the following morning.  The Darius decree was cumbersome & unwanted but after prayer Daniel had an angel visitation & the lions mouths were shut. Why would he be still standing, shaking & in prayer?

So should we tune it out?  Turn it off?  I don’t think so.. This Bible series should encourage each one of us to review the actual Bible to see if what we experienced was truth or not & what was missing.  What the Bereans did in the book of Acts was given to us as an example of how we need to run everything through God’s word.  Especially in these last days.  I want this Bible series to encourage all of us to dig deep into God’s word.
