Getting Down to the Real Nitty Gritty!














My dear friend, may we get right down to the real nitty gritty of our hour... Do YOU personally know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior as the Holy Scriptures teach. In death everyone will give an account to Almighty God whether conservative or progressive (John 3:36, Rom. 14:11, Phil. 2:10, Heb. 9:27, Rev. 20:11-15). What we need today is ETERNAL REALITY and not subjective optimistic delusions. Here me, I love America and its noble aspirations at our founding but the jig is up and the Day of the Lord is at hand (Rev. 6-19). May you choose to want to see the REALITY of our hour for if you do you will be made ETERNALLY free (John 3:16-17, 36, Rev. 22:1-5)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Redeeming the Time Wisely For The Lord!

















In light of our hour, those of us who profess a genuine saving faith in Jesus Christ ought to be looking for His soon coming (1 Thess. 4:13-18, 1 John 3:1-4) and be redeeming the time, for the days are indeed evil (Eph. 5:16; 6:13). That REALITY alone should be our great desire for the advancement of the “great commission”  of the Gospel (good news), its outworking and fulfillment (Acts 1:8; 2 Cor. 5:18-20; 2 Tim. 1:9).

The failing social and moral issues of the day have apparently consumed and caused many Bible Believers and Evangelicals to stumble and fall.

The failing social and moral issues of our day have apparently consumed and caused many Bible Believers and Evangelicals to stumble and fall. These seem to have taken their eyes off of their ETERNAL position (Eph. 2:6, Col. 3:1-4), the ETERNAL Savior of their souls and the very hour in which we are living. These individuals are dear, sincere people who just need to redirect their course and current position to get their holy calling and priorities right (1 Cor. 2:2; Gal. 6:14). We should not get discouraged, however, if many do not, for the Lord Himself proclaimed a great spiritual decline in these Last Days (Matt. 24, Rev. 3:14-22).

In these Last Days may our hearts be tuned and fully yielding to the Holy Spirit's leading as we seek to do our part for “God and country” while never confusing or compromising the given order. May we be seeking ONLY God’s highest and best for all Americans and the world, which is having a saving relationship to Jesus Christ and the reality of sound Biblical teaching of Holy Scripture (2 Cor. 9:13; Phil. 3:12; 1 Tim. 6:2; 2 Tim. 4:15-16).

In these Last Days may we be doing our part for “God and country” while never confusing or compromising the given order.

Wherever we may find ourselves, may our political mantra be: “Servants of Christ FIRST, and a Conservative SECOND.” When we enjoy our healthy standing in Christ and are standing in Him rightly, we will inevitably be a right healthy conservative in everything we do and say (1 Cor. 6:20; 7:31; Col. 1:28; 3:16-17)!

Beloved, The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!

What is True Beauty and How Do I Get It?
















What exactly is TRUE BEAUTY? Well... quite simply, TRUE BEAUTY is NOT the genetic make up given to an individual at the moment of conception. How many millions have been deceived into thinking that their genetic make up or human "beauty" is actually their true self. Oh deceived one. The world's history is full of the "beautiful" who fill the world's graves and have been long forgotten. We as persons live in these bodies which gives us access to outwork life here in time in this physical world but our bodies and genetic make up is not who we are.

 The beauty of a man or woman is only for a moment and then as a flower of summer blooms with great wonderment and glory unto the GLORY of the CREATOR, wilts and fades away FOREVER.

The beauty of a man or woman is only for a brief moment and then as a flower of summer blooms with great wonderment and glory unto the GLORY of the ALL WISE ETERNAL CREATOR (Matt. 6:27-30), wilts and fades away FOREVER (Job, 14:2, Psalm 103:15-17, Prov. 31:30, 1 Peter 1:24. 1 John 2:16-18, Rev. 20:11-15)! Dear friends, look at the outward "beautiful" of our America's Hollywood past. They were all here for a moment to shine and are now FOREVERMORE gone. Thus our beauty and flesh is but mortal, brief, corrupt, vain and dust... and has NO abode in ETERNITY FUTURE (Rom. 5:7:18-25, 1 Cor. 15:50, 2 Cor. 5:1-4, John 3:6). However, our person soul and spirit - which dwells in this temporal fallen body of flesh - is ETERNAL and will either dwell in ETERNITY'S prison in perdition (the Lake of Fire- Rev. 20:11-15) or in Glory redeemed from this body of flesh (Rom. 7:24-25, Cor. 15:50-58, Rev. 21, 22:1-5).

 TRUE BEAUTY is our greatest need in the light of ETERNITY'S RIGHTEOUS PERFECT DEMANDS.

What is TRUE BEAUTY? TRUE BEAUTY is a wonderful FREE gift from Almighty God (Rom. 5:16-17; 6:23). The FREE GIFT of TRUE BEAUTY is provided to all by Almighty God (1 Cor. 1:30). TRUE BEAUTY is our greatest need in the light of ETERNITY'S RIGHTEOUS PERFECT DEMANDS.

This pinnacle of wondrous beauty is nothing less than the glorious RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God has provided for His fallen creation. This BEAUTY is found nowhere else but in Christ Jesus, the Savior of the whole world (Rom. 10:4; 2 Cor. 5:21).

"Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints" (Rev 19:6-8).

When one places their absolute trust in Jesus Christ and His saving grace, that individual is given the BEAUTY of the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God and ETERNAL Life (Psalms 7:17; 90:17; John 3:16,17).

God takes on Himself our shame and sinful hideousness, and He bestows on us the BEAUTY of His RIGHTEOUSNESS (Psalms 17:15; Isaiah 61:1-3; 64:6; Rom. 4:6, 22-24; 5:4; 1 Cor. 1:30; 2 Cor. 5:17; 1 John 3:2).

Oh, how will the redeemed of Almighty God shine and rejoice forever in the ETERNAL BEAUTY of the Lord! (Dan. 12:3; Matt. 13:43; 1 Cor. 2:9).

What About You?
.

May I ask you this very sobering question? Do you possess the Beauty of Righteousness that is found only in Jesus Christ? The Bible states in Isaiah 64:6 that “all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags [bloody menstrual cloths].” All earthly beauty will fade away, as countless millions have experienced and could testify. Only the BEAUTY of Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS (state of perfection) will endure FOREVER (Matt. 13:43; Rev. 22:11).

All earthly beauty will fade away, as countless millions have experienced and could testify. Only the BEAUTY of Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS (state of perfection) will endure FOREVER.

You do not know what will happen tomorrow (Proverbs 27:1). If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, may you do so even now by making that conscious decision to receive Him into your heart and life. Then shall your beauty endure FOREVER as the stars of FOREVER, and bliss and joy will you know forevermore (Matt 13:43; 1 Cor. 2:9). Place your trust in Him TODAY. Behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Cor. 6:2)! You will NEVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Fishers of Men

Him for You









My friend, let me ask you this very sobering and pertinent question. Do you possess the absolute perfection (righteousness) within yourself that is required to enter Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS heaven? The answer is a very obvious and sobering, “No, you do not.” How will you then enter into ETERNITY and meet it's perfect and righteous demands?

Almighty God has made provision for you in the Person of His Son, Jesus Christ sending Him for you. God’s Word states:

For he (God) hath made him (Christ) to be sin for us, who knew no sin (Christ); that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (2 Cor. 5:21)

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. (Romans 10:4)

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.
(1 Cor. 1:30)

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (John 3:36)

Will you take God at His Word today and put your trust and faith in Jesus Christ alone? He alone has all the remedies for your imperfect human condition. He alone will provide you with the perfect righteousness needed to secure your eternal future. Put your absolute trust in him today! You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
