The TRUE Super Sunday! The Lord's Day!

This Super Sunday in America millions will be missing out on the TRUE Super Sunday that transcends time and ETERNITY!

The original "Super Sunday", the day that the Savior of the world defeated Death and Hades (Sheol) and rose again from the grave ( Acts 2:22-36; 3:13-18; 4:10-12, 33; 5:29-32; 10:37-43; 13:27-37; 17:23, 30-32; 23:6; 24:14-16; 25:19; 26:68, 22-23, Rev. 1:18) is now the day of the week that His redeemed gather together to hear Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS Word. It is a day set apart by the Father for His saints to enter into His HOLY presence in a very special way; to worship Him in Spirit and TRUTH, to expose one's hearts and minds to the REALITIES of time and ETERNITY, to be challenged, strengthened and encouraged in the Savior and to fellowship with believers in Spirit and TRUTH (John 3:21, 4:24).  How many churches across this land today have that mindset when they go to hear God's Word? Not many and that is a sobering very reality (Rev. 3:14-22).

The original "Super Sunday", the day that the Savior of the world defeated Death and Hades (Sheol) and rose again from the grave is now the day of the week that His redeemed gather together to hear Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS Word!

My beloved, If the Lord's Day is not "super" to you then it is safe to say that the ETERNAL God, His  Blessed Son, His saving grace and ETERNAL promises are not  precious to you either and you might not be truly saved (Matt. 7:21-23, 2 Cor. 13:5, Jude 1:10).

Football today in our nation has made millions of America's obsessed and fanatical. It consumes and dominates their minds and with the 24/7 sports media, it occupies all their time. I love football for it is the greatest game but our nation has become consumed with this sport and the day that it falls on. The NFL has been a satanic distraction in our culture for years and has replace the Lord's Day and the fallout from this has helped to bring us as a nation to where we are today; lost, ignorant, distracted, godless, narcissistic and doomed. Our post Judeo/Christian America Sunday has now become "MY" - day and the Lord's Day has been put on the back burner for emergency purposes only. No doubt this appraisal sounds a  little radical and fanatical I bet but that is where it is at today in the U.S. of A. Ban and remove the NFL in America and watch a civil war begin. Remove the Lord's Day from post Judeo/Christian American culture and see how many people truly care.

The NFL has been a satanic distraction in our culture for years and has replace the Lord's Day and the fallout from this has helped to bring us as a nation to where we are today; lost, ignorant, distracted, godless, narcissistic and doomed.

Football is very exciting, full of militaristic tactics, excitement and great passion, however football has become - as it were - a cult in our country today and the Super Bowl the high holy day which is most reverenced in our nation each January. Sunday NFL football has also been set apart by millions for the worshiping of one's favorite teams. The amount of money and time invested by individuals into football, fantasy football leagues, gaming, food, alcohol, preparing and studying all the NFL stats, setting Sunday morning apart for all the pregame shows is zealousness at its very best! From tail gating to house party football gatherings who has time or room to worship the Almighty in the spirit of TRUTH and RIGHTEOUSNESS on His day set apart? Tragically, very few. today.

Indeed football is a great game to watch and follow as I do but it can NEVER replace the Lord's Day in my mind and heart and I am not saying that to sound self righteous and full of piety. That is the Lord's truth. A saving personal relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit and TRUTH has absolutely no comparison and until one fully has surrendered to the will of Almighty God for their lives one will never be free to enjoy all things (John 8:32, 36).

Football has become - as it were - a cult in our country today and the Super Bowl the high holy day which is most reverenced in our nation each January. Sunday NFL football has also been set apart by millions for the worshiping of one's favorite teams.

My dear fanatical football friend, enjoy the game of football but NEVER let it replace Almighty God and His Divinely set apart Day. Beware of what it has become unto you and to millions like you. It is has become a snare, a trap, a stumbling block, a distraction unto you, to remove your affections from the ETERNAL REALITIES of time and ETERNITY (Matt. 6:19-21). It has been placed on a Sunday as a detour from the road to ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS to a road on which its bridge is out.

The Lord Jesus made this very sober remark to those who are obsessed and addicted with the temporal things of this world and not taking the ETERNAL serious enough.

"And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell." Matt. 5:29-30

"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Matt. 6:19-21

Do you know the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior? That is the ETERNAL question for all.  "The world passeth away, and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of God, abideth FOREVER (1 John 2:17).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Ignorance of Scripture is Ignorance of Christ - Take the Gospel of John Challenge

 












Who do you say that Jesus is? Do your thoughts, upbringing, religious background, or personal beliefs about Jesus line up with God’s Christ of the HOLY SCRIPTURES? You might ask, “Well, does it make a difference? My friend, I say unto you, it surely does!

TAKE THE JESUS CHALLENGE

The Bible is the final AUTHORITY on who Jesus Christ is. It is God’s absolute instruction manual and blueprint for life. If you reject the authority of the Word of God, my friend, you are doomed. There is no hope for your lost, sinful condition. The Bible teaches that “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). All! You need to know the True Savior, not a make-believe one. It’s that serious. Don’t let your deceitful heart and pride ruin you and keep you from God’s redemption found in Jesus Christ.

Ignorance of Scripture is Ignorance of Christ!

Jesus said, "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life; and they are they which testify [speak] of me" (John 5:39).

The purpose of this Bible study is to bring a person through God’s simple plan of salvation using only the Gospel of John. When a Gospel of John is handed out to a person, it is a good idea to give the person this study along with it. The study was written in such a way (question/ answer format) that the person can see for themselves what the Bible really says about who Jesus Christ is, what He has done for us, and the necessity of putting our faith in Him.

For the person doing this study, please answer the following questions by looking up the Bible verses which are given, all of which can be found in the Gospel of John.
