The Unbelievers

This is the day the LORD has made rejoice. 

When one dies as an unbeliever what does the bible say about where they go?

Today, when an unbeliever dies, he follows the Old Testament unbelievers to the torment side of Hades. At the final judgment, Hades will be emptied before the Great White Throne, where its occupants will be judged prior to entering the lake of fire (Revelation 20:13–15).

Prior to Christ’s resurrection, Hades was divided into two realms: a place of comfort where Lazarus was (Abraham’s bosom or Abraham’s side) and a place of torment where the rich man was (hell). Lazarus’s place of comfort is elsewhere called “paradise” And the two places were divided. But they could see one another. 

This would seem to mean that after ones death, ones fate is sealed.

Who are the unbelieving? Those who do not believe they need a Savior. Those who don't believe that Jesus' death on the cross and the shedding of HIS blood paid their debt. Those who do not repent but have died in their sin. Those who don't believe in Jesus. 

It's a scary thing to read about unbelievers and their fate. Yet, many will spare upsetting the apple cart to tell their loved ones about Jesus. And their eternal fate if they don't come to Jesus.

Folks, you are not saved by knowing of Jesus. Or going to mass. Or reciting the rosary. Or praying to saints. Or Mary. No. Jesus said to be born again you must be born of water and Spirit. This means that you receive the Holy Spirit within you. When you repent, are baptized for the remission of sins and believe that JESUS IS THE TRUTH THE WAY AND THE LIFE. And believe on HIM who was sent. Because we are all sinners in need of a Savior.

New Jerusalem Spiritual

This is the day the LORD has made rejoice!! 

 We will be continuing in the study on New Jerusalem.  But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. (Rev. 21:22-23) Lets look at Galatians 4:26 " But Jerusalem which is above is free which is the mother of us all. 

 Verse 23 But he who was of the bond woman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. 24 which things are an allegory: but these are the two covenants; the one from Mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. 25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in the bondage of her children. 31So then, brethren we are not children bondwoman , but of the free. 

Verse 26 (emphasis is mine) BUT JERUSALEM WHICH IS ABOVE IS FREE.....
The Jerusalem that is seen now will pass away. The Jerusalem that is above is eternal. This is the New Jerusalem. "But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple." 

 We are not under the Old Covenant but a new and better covenant with a better hope. We are just passing through. On our way to a free New Jerusalem. Amen.

 That New Jerusalem lives in all of Gods children today. We are born again from flesh to Spirit. Amen?
 We must stop looking at The earthly Jerusalem which is nothing more than a geographical area. Why? Because when CHRIST died a New Jerusalem was established. "JERUSALEM WHICH IS ABOVE IS FREE.....

The Kingdom of God truly is within us. The Kingdom of God, the tabernacle of God, will be with the saved nations of the earth. But the new Jerusalem is a living city that is located wherever the saint finds himself as he does the will of God. Christ Himself, the Lamb, is the Throne of the new Jerusalem. The Church, which is His Body, the Bride of the Lamb, is His fullness that fills all in all.

 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, Which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. (Ephesians 1:22,23) Amen!
Be Blessed in Jesus.

Second Coming Of Christ

Second Coming of Jesus

Jesus promised His disciples He would come again. It's in the Bible, John 14:1-3, TLB. "Let not your heart be troubled. You are trusting God, now trust in Me. There are many homes up there where my Father lives, and I am going to prepare them for your coming. When everything is ready, then I will come and get you, so that you can always be with Me where I am. If this weren't so, I would tell you plainly. And you know where I am going and how to get there."
Christ's return will be literal and real. It's in the Bible, Acts 1:10-11, TLB. "It was not long afterwards that He rose into the sky and disappeared into a cloud, leaving them staring after Him. As they were straining their eyes for another glimpse, suddenly two white-robed men were standing there among them, and said, 'Men of Galilee, why are you standing here staring at the sky? Jesus has gone away to heaven, and some day, just as He went, He will return!'"
How will Jesus come again? It's in the Bible, Luke 21:27, NIV. "At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory."
How many will see Him when He comes? It's in the Bible, Revelation 1:7, NIV. "Look, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of Him."
What will we see and hear when He comes? It's in the Bible, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, NIV. "For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever."
How visible is His coming to be? It's in the Bible, Matthew 24:27, NIV. "For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man."
Christ's coming will be unexpected and dramatic. It's in the BIble, 2 Peter 3:10, NKJV. " But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up."
What warning has Christ given so we won't be fooled about the second coming? It's in the Bible, Matthew 24:23-26, NIV. "At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'There He is!' do not believe it. For false Christ's and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time. So if anyone tells you, 'There He is, out in the desert,' do not go out; or, 'Here He is, in the inner rooms,' do not believe it."
Does anyone know the exact time of Christ's coming? It's in the Bible, Matthew 24:36, NIV. "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."
Knowing how human it is to procrastinate, what does Christ tell us to do? It's in the Bible, Matthew 24:42, NKJV. "Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming."
What warning has Christ given that we might not be taken by surprise by this great event? It's in the Bible, Luke 21:34-36, NKJV. " But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthyto escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
Why is Jesus second coming taking so long? It's in the Bible, II Peter 3:8-9, NIV. "But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."
While we wait for Jesus, how should we live? It's in the Bible, Titus 2:11-14, NKJV. " For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works."
What will the world be like when Jesus comes? It's in the Bible, Matthew 24:37-39, NIV. "As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man."
Will Christ's coming be a time of reward? It's in the Bible, Matthew 16:27 and Revelation 22:12, NIV. "For the Son of Man is going to come in His Father's glory with His angels, and then He will reward each person according to what he has done." "Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with Me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done."
Why is Jesus coming back? It's in the Bible, Hebrews 9:28, TLB. "So also Christ died only once as an offering for the sins of many people; and He will come again, but not to deal again with our sins. This time He will come bringing salvation to all those who are eagerly and patiently waiting for Him."
At Jesus' second coming, we will fully experience the reality of our salvation. It's in the Bible, 1 Corinthians 1:7-8, TLB. "Now you have every grace and blessing; every spiritual gift and power for doing His will are yours during this time of waiting for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. And He guarantees right up to the end that you will be counted free from all sin and guilt on that day when He returns."
What is the last promise Jesus gives us in the Bible? It's in the Bible, Revelation 22:20, NKJV. "He who testifies to these things says, 'Surely I am coming quickly.' Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus"

WHAT?!?!!? Please Pray.

    I have read some pretty sickening articles before BUT nothing as sinful and twisted as this. My God, please have mercy. Save your babies. 

I looked at the numbers and it made me sick to my stomach. Who do these people think they are? And then I hear don't judge me only God can. Oh, DON'T YOU WORRY HE WILL. 

Please read the article below. Research it. 

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards told reporters on Tuesday that her organization takes pride in providing millions of abortions at its affiliated clinics around the country.

"We proudly provide safe and legal abortion," Richards said.
"For young women in America, the idea that pregnancy alone would determine their destiny is unthinkable today. They fully expect that birth control and safe and legal abortion will be available to them, and they should."
Planned Parenthood clinics performed 327,653 abortions in fiscal year 2014, according to Planned Parenthood of America's latest annual report — 487 more than the previous year and an average of 37 abortions per hour.
Planned Parenthood received $528.4 million from government grants and reimbursements last year, accounting for 41 percent of its revenue.

Pray for these unborn babies. Pray for the mothers. Pray that the clinics shut down. Pray for Cecile Richards who is deceived by the devil himself. 

In Jesus name,

A Picture Tells A Thousand Words... PRAY!!!

 I also have seen this happen (2 weeks ago) right outside my window while sitting on the computer, only it was a huge hawk coming after the small birds that I feed and he induced panic and fear in all the little birds and they tried to take cover in the shrubs under the window and on my porch...but he caught one on my porch in his claws and hit my window (as I watched & it was sad) then got down on the sidewalk and stopped... and he looked at me, right smack at me in the eyes as if to impress on me how powerful he was.  I wanted to run right out and shake my fist at that large hawk (and he was beautiful and probably hungry) as I didn't want him to destroy that little bird.  I guess I felt responsible for the bird's death because I'm the one who feeds him and all his friends.  I do believe it is the way that is provided for other creatures to survive.  But, let's talk about human survival...

This is exactly how Satan and his demons manipulate the thoughts of those who are ignorant of God's truth in His Word and know not Jesus Christ as Savior.  Satan lures the unsaved into the open and continues to deceive them, using every means and ways to keep them in bondage under his ways. 

Now, Satan does the same thing to the Christian, the believer, in order to weaken them in their beliefs and sometimes we give him access by our own willful disobedience.  That's not so nice, is it?  But, we do it so many times...and that is so sad.  I hate it when I offend my Lord Who died for me on the cross.

We all have to remember that the Almighty God is our Protector - Psalm 91:4 -  "He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler."  We should never treat our own sin lightly...because it is the poison our enemy, Satan, uses against us to deceive us so that we fall under his destruction.  May we always be alert and aware of Satan's tactics that he uses to defeat us.  2 Thes. 3:3 - "But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil."

In His blessed Name, Jesus Christ...Norma

This picture reminds me of how Satan attacks us - through the flesh!  The black bird is inflicting the white doves...just as Satan inflicts us in so many ways.
