The SAVIOUR


Isaiah 43:11 KJV -  "I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no Saviour." 

Isaiah 45:21-22 KJV - "Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else."

Philippians 3:20 KJV - "For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:"

2 Timothy 1:10 KJV - " But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:"

1 John 1:14 KJV - "And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world."

To many God is an unknown God. But God has made Himself known through the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Timothy 3:16 KJV - "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

Jesus is none other than God manifest in the flesh, who came into the world to save. There is only one true and living God, and He is both LORD and SAVIOUR in both the Old Testament and in the New Testament. Beside Him there is no SAVIOUR. God alone saves, and He preserves. And this God came into this world in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ as REDEEMER. He is the LAMB of GOD which taketh away the sin of the world. Christ Jesus the Lord is the very WAY of SALVATION. He alone has the very distinct title of SAVIOUR. He alone is the SAVIOUR of men, the SAVIOUR of the world. Christ Jesus has abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through His gospel. Only in Him is there EVERLASTING LIFE. Of we men most miserable, we only have hope in the SAVIOUR. All other gods are false, there is no other LORD, GOD, or SAVIOUR beside Him. 

No longer the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger, born that day a Saviour, Christ the Lord. He grew to be a man. He spoke words that were spirit and life. He forgave sins, and healed the sick, and called sinners to repentance. He had mercy upon sinners and saved poor sinners. He went to the cross and there He died for our sins. He was buried. And the third day He arose from the death of the grave. Behold, the SAVIOUR! He ascended up into heaven, and He will return in like manner. From whence we look for the SAVIOUR, the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Titus 2:11-13 KJV - "For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;"

Do you have Him as your BLESSED HOPE? Have you come to the SAVIOUR in repentance and faith? Have you been saved by this SAVIOUR? Nothing in this world is worth losing your own soul for...NOTHING. Look unto the SAVIOUR, and be ye saved, for there is no other SAVIOUR whereby we must be saved. NOW is the day of His salvation. NOW is the day to call on His name, and to be saved. He still saves poor sinners...poor sinners like me. 

Amen.

Booze


"Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise." - Proverbs 20:1 KJV.

Booze inflames the body, and deceives the mind. Booze destroys. Booze kills. It opens the mind to great delusion. The buzz or high from booze is a deception. It's not real. The boozer must come down from the high. Booze brings woe. Booze brings sorrow. Booze brings contentions. Booze brings babbling. Booze brings wounds without cause. It brings redness of eyes. Booze damages the body and makes ill.

"At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder." - Proverbs 23:32 KJV.

See all the folks eating, drinking, an being merry, having a great time with the booze? They seek it again and again. It's all a lie. It's an illusion. Do not be deceived. Booze is a deadly poison, a venomous addiction. Booze is a destroyer of the soul. The spirits of strong drink mock at life, the devils of alcohol rage, and drag the body and soul to death and destruction. Drunkards, those given to strong drink, do not go to heaven (Gal. 5:21, 1 Cor. 6:10 KJV). Some never escape it, and go to the depths of hell.

Flee booze for your life. Come unto the Lord Jesus Christ.
Only the Lord Jesus can set the drunkard free from the power of booze.
Only the Lord Jesus can save you.

Why I Preach The Gospel



"And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."  - Revelation 20:11-15 KJV. 

One of the most solemn passages of Scripture in the word of God. The Bible is clear to say "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:" - Hebrews 9:27 KJV. There is death, there is judgment, and there is hell. The coming judgment of God ought to awaken every soul on the face of this earth. A great white throne, God sitting upon the throne. God is Judge. Earth and heaven shall flee away. The books opened. Every man judged according to their works. This judgment is the judgment of the unsaved, those that rejected God's salvation through His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. They have rejected the Saviour, and have perished in their sins into death and hell. One day, death and hell will deliver up those souls to God's great white throne. There is a fate worse than hell. Those in death and hell will be resurrected unto damnation. They will stand before the living God to be judged. Death and hell will be cast into the lake of fire, where the beast, the false prophet, and Satan himself will be in torments for ever and ever. Every soul not found written in the book of life will one day be cast into the lake of fire. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. 

These are the souls that would not come to the Lord Jesus for salvation. They rejected the gift of God. Their names will not be found in God's book of life. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." - Romans 6:23 KJV. A frightening day to behold. They judged themselves unworthy of eternal life, counting the gift of God as foolishness. Knowing that the wages of sin is death, they choose to pay their own wages in the lake of fire. 

Indeed the word of God is clear..."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 KJV. Again in 1 John 5:10-12 KJV - "He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." There is only one way to have your name written in God's book of life, through God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Is your name written in the book of life?

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Romans 10:13 KJV.

This is why I preach the Gospel, daily. I am a poor man saved by this Gospel. I have seen and tasted that the Lord is good unto those that call upon His name. By His grace my name is written in the book of life. This is no fairy tale, no fable, no fictional make believe. This is the TRUTH according to the very word of God. Nothing in this world is worth your soul. This is why I also WARN of ravenous wolves in sheep's clothing, false teachers. Let no man deceive you. Let no man, or angel, or devil deceive you into the eternal loss of your own soul. Do not deceive your own self! God commands all sinners come to repentance towards Him and faith in His Son, Jesus Christ the Lord. He came not to destroy the lives of men, but to save them.

The Noble Way




"And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." - Acts 17:10 -11 KJV.

While there are teachers given to the church, we ought to rely upon the Holy Spirit to teach us. He is our Guide unto all truth. The word of the Lord IS truth, and we ought to be in the Scriptures daily. The Holy Spirit will simply point folks to the Lord Jesus Himself, and to His word of truth. We are called to the Lord Himself, and we are to simply abide in the Lord Himself. We ought to let the word of Christ dwell in us richly, and we ought to abide in Him and His word. Churchianity and religion often get in the way, and we often need to escape it's clutches. Worldliness so easy entangles us all. Going to a church building saves no man. Vain religion saves no man. 

The call of the hour is to come unto the Lord Jesus Himself. Men are fallible, men are fickle, and many are false in these last days. The spirit of error is rampant, and many are seduced by this spirit that leads souls into error and destruction. The word of God, even the Lord Jesus Himself, says to BEWARE. Many are so easily offended in these last days as well, I see division on every side. It's hard to truly know true brethren from the false brethren. God is surely not the Author of all of this confusion. Know this, the truth of the word of God is FOOLISHNESS to those that are in error and are perishing. Even to many who have a Bible in their hands. We who truly believe have an unction from the Holy One, from the Lord Himself. 

1 John 2:20-21, 27 KJV - "But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth...But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him." 

This "anointing" is none other than the Holy Spirit of truth Himself. He comes to and abides in ONLY those that are truly saved and believe. All others are being led away by the spirit of error. I have learned that the Lord has ZERO tolerance for the spirit of error, and that a little leaven leaventh the lump. NO LIE is of the TRUTH. The Lord is our Teacher, and we ought to cleave unto Him alone. His Spirit is the Spirit of TRUTH. I know that there are teachers given, and yet we must be sober and alert at all times, and go to the Scriptures to check every word of any and every teacher, to see whether these things be so. There is a flood of false teachers in these last days. Lack of knowledge of the word of the Lord and ignorance DESTROYS the souls of men. We ought to go to the Scriptures whether the teacher is true or false. If he is false, he is to be rejected, marked, and avoided. If he is true, then the soul ought to be drawn closer to the Lord Himself and to His word. 

The Berean's even checked Paul, an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ! And, they were called more NOBLE for doing so! Yet, many are offended at this. Many are offended if their favorite teacher is exposed or called into question. Revering men and calling them by flattering titles is dangerous ground. Following any man or woman is dangerous ground. Respect of persons is a sin. True nobility is having a ready mind to receive the word of God, even the words of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. True nobility is searching the Scriptures and comparing every jot and tittle to see if these things be so, according to the Scriptures. Man's opinion means nothing. The vain doctrines and traditions of men mean nothing. 

We live in the days where many will not endure sound doctrine, yet after THEIR OWN LUSTS heap to themselves many teachers to scratch their itching ears. BEWARE, lest you are led away with the error of the wicked. A noble heart is ready to be reproved by the word of God, to depart from evil, and to endure sound doctrine. The wicked heart hates reproof, rejects the truth, goes the way of error and unbelief, and will not endure sound doctrine. To the unsaved, repent and turn to the Lord Himself and be ye saved. To the saved, to anyone who has an ear to hear, repent, and only place your faith, trust, and confidence in Christ Jesus the Lord Himself.

Warning!

Ezekiel 33:1 KJV - "Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:

3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;

4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.

5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.

6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.

7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.

8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

10 Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live?

11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?"

God's love and mercy sends WARNING before He sends the sword, before the time of His wrath. God sets watchmen, and commands them to WARN the people. The prophets of old, like Ezekiel, were the Lord's watchmen. They WARNED Israel of God's impending judgment. In these last days God has spoken through His only begotten Son, and has sent forth His word. Not only to Israel, but to both Jews and Gentiles. God's watchmen are hated, despised, most were killed. Even the Son was rejected and crucified upon the cross. In modern times there are watchmen, who tell of God's WARNINGS. They are misunderstood, despised, rejected, shunned, avoided, ignored, laughed at, scorned, mocked, accused, and slandered. The sword of God's judgment is coming, believe it or not, ready or not, to the whole of heaven and earth. Trifle not with God nor with your own souls. Hear this day this WARNING...The ancient cry to Israel rings true today to the whole world..."Turn ye from your way and live. Turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways! Why will ye die?" Turn to God through His dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and live.

Faithful Wounds

"Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful."
- Proverbs 27:6 KJV.

A true friend speaks the truth, even if the truth wounds. An enemy speaks lies to tickle the ears, speaking smooth things. A true friend warns, an enemy remains silent in the face of troubles. The kiss of deception is the betraying kiss of a Judas whose heart is not sincerely with you. The faithful wounds of a friend reveal a true heart that sincerely loves. A faithful friend is genuine. An enemy is full of false pretence. A true friend tends to life. An enemy, pretending to be a lover, is in truth a destroyer. There is a Spirit of truth, and there is a spirit of error. The Spirit of truth reproves the world of sin. The spirit of error will bear no reproof, and rejects the truth. True love WARNS. False love, under the guise of being true, in the face of danger, leaves the heart in silence. The wounds of a friend are FAITHFUL. The kisses of an enemy are DECEITFUL.

- DWD

A True Witness

"A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies."
- Proverbs 14:25 KJV.

The Spirit of truth speaks the truth, and leads a soul unto the truth. The word of God is truth. His truth sets the soul free from bondage. The spirit of error speaks lies, and leads a soul unto error. Error leads a soul unto bondage. Even truth leavened with the leaven of lies is both an error and a lie still. It only takes a little leaven to leaven the whole lump. The Spirit of the Lord is that true witness that delivers souls. The spirit of error is the spirit of the devil, the father of lies. He is that deceitful witness that fills the air with disinformation and bears a false witness. A soul is being led by the Spirit of truth or is being led by the spirit of error. A soul is following a true witness, or is following a deceitful witness. A life is ruled by TRUTH or by DECEIT. A true witness delivereth souls, a deceitful witness leads souls to hell and destruction.

Another Gospel



"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ." - Galatians 1:6 -12 KJV.

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ the Lord, called and separated unto the true and pure gospel of Christ the Lord. Paul's gospel was, and is, Christ Jesus, and Him crucified. He says in 1 Corinthians 2:1-3 KJV - "And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling."

No eloquent speech. No charisma. No sugar coated, sweetened message to tickle itching ears. No high sounding words or vain wisdom of this world. No vain, fleshly, carnal, showy preaching. Nay, but with weakness, fear, and much trembling. The very heart of his gospel was, and is, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, was buried, and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV). Paul's gospel is firmly focused on the person and work of Christ Jesus the Lord, and the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Himself. Paul warns of another gospel, a gospel perverted, that is not after the true Christ.

Paul speaks of "another Jesus" being preached in 2 Corinthians 11:3-4 KJV - "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him." 

A warning of another gospel, another Jesus, and another spirit. Beloved, believe not every spirit. Believe not every Jesus. Believe not every gospel. Paul, with an unfeigned faith, void of hypocrisy and false pretence, preached Christ in all truth and sincerity. He says in 2 Corinthians 2:17 KJV - "For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ."

There are MANY that pervert and corrupt the word of God. They subtly add and take away from the true gospel of Christ Jesus the Lord. They add doctrines and traditions of men. commandments of men, to the "other" gospel they preach. It is leavened with error, and hypocrisy. There is no true, clear, focus on the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. There is no true, and clear, pointing the souls of men to the Lord Jesus Himself as Saviour. There is no sincerity, as their faith is feigned, full of false pretence. It is showy, fleshly, carnal. All the world is a stage, and they are merely crafty actors that come in the name of Christ. Saying His name is not enough. Coming in His name is not enough. Honouring God with the lips is not enough. Doing many wonderful works in His name is not enough. Paul remained in the pure doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ, and was unmovable.

John testified in 2 John 1:9-10 KJV - "Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:"  

Another gospel is a dangerous gospel, a deadly gospel laced with error. Paul abode in the doctrine of Christ Jesus the Lord alone, abiding in the word of God and the word of God abiding in him. Paul let the word of Christ dwell in Him richly. Paul was not a man pleaser, neither was he taught of men, and his gospel came not from men, but was revealed to him by the Lord Jesus Himself. On this Rock Paul stood without wavering, not tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine. Paul could say with David,

"He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved." 
                                                                                                    - Psalms 62:6 KJV. 

From this firm, sure-footed place of standing Paul preached the true gospel of Christ Jesus and warned of another gospel. A gospel accursed. He warned of "another Jesus", one that many seem to bear with. The Spirit of truth has ZERO TOLERANCE for another gospel, for any other gospel, a gospel according to the spirit of error. If any man or woman, or an angel from heaven, will not abide in the pure doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and stay true to the Gospel of Christ Jesus the Lord, they hath not God. There is no light in them. They are vain, and know nothing. The word of God calls them that preach "another Gospel" ACCURSED. not once, but twice.

Beloved, believe not every gospel. Hold fast to the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. Hold fast to His wholesome doctrine, to sound doctrine, to the form of sound words, and to the faithful and true Gospel as found in the word of God. Do not ever deviate from the very heart of the true gospel. Do not add to the gospel. Do not take away or diminish from the pure gospel. And here is the heart of the pure Gospel of Christ Jesus, again from Paul:

"Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"                                                     - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV. 

I, too, by the Spirit of the living God point to the Rock that is higher than I, Christ Jesus the Lord who only is my Rock and my Salvation. I point clearly to the gospel taught to me by the revelation of Jesus Christ, by His word and by His Spirit of truth. Beware of any other gospel, any gospel that is not according to the Scriptures. A gospel of man, from man, is another gospel. Another gospel is a very popular gospel, a well spoken of gospel, a man pleasing gospel, but it is an accursed gospel. A corrupt gospel, a perverted gospel, is no gospel at all. I say it again, an accursed gospel.

There is no power to save the soul in the accursed gospel. Beware of them that preach another gospel, as they themselves are accursed. Accursed by the living God. Heed them not. Follow them not. God is no respecter of persons. Flattering titles of men mean nothing to God. A form of godliness that denies the power thereof does not impress the Lord of heaven and earth. Beautiful, worshipful music does not move the Lord one jot or tittle from the soundness of His pure doctrine. Yet there are spirits at work to remove the souls of men from the truth of the gospel. Be careful to not be removed from the gospel of Christ Jesus the Lord, from the grace of Christ, unto another gospel.

Beloved, beware of another gospel.

Try the Spirits!




"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: Because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error" 
                                                                                                           - 1 John 4:1-6 KJV. 

Try the spirits! This means test the spirits, examine them, judge them, prove them. Believe not every spirit. Just because a spirit comes in the name of "God" or names the name of "Jesus" does not make them truly of the Spirit of God. Do not simply believe them. There are many false spirits roaming about. Many spirits of the antichrist, spirits that come in the name of Christ, under the guise of Christ. Spirits of the world that mind earthly things, and savour the things of men. Spirits that speak of the world, and the world heareth them. They mind not the Spirit of God, and care not for the things of the Lord. Spirits that will not, and indeed cannot, hear the Spirit of truth, nor the word of God, nor do they speak the word of life. They are spirits of error, preaching error, teaching error, and leading souls into error. Often with an admixture of some truth leavened with deadly error. Lying spirits, seducing spirits, that lead the souls of men into disinformation and destruction. Try the spirits! 


Is the "Jesus" preached the true Jesus according to the Scriptures? Try their "Jesus"! These false spirits have "another Jesus". Is the gospel presented the gospel according to the word of God? These lying spirits have "another gospel", a soft man-centered gospel, a social gospel, a works gospel, a gospel laden with the doctrines, commandments, and traditions of men. These deceptive spirits have a gospel that is not centered firmly on the person and work of Christ Jesus the Lord, the Saviour of the world. Another gospel that does not call men to repentance, that does not reprove men of sin, that does not warn men of judgment, neither speaks of a literal place called hell, nor preaches Christ Jesus and Him come in the flesh, of Him crucified. Let no spirit deceive you.


Try the spirits, even examining your own selves, to see whether you are in the faith of the true Lord Jesus or in another faith of another spirit. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV - "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?" A reprobate is someone disallowed or rejected, abandoned to sin, abandoned to error, someone lost in apostasy. This is where the spirit of error will lead...the road to apostasy. The Spirit of truth leads to the one and only Saviour! 


"And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world." 

                                                                                                              - 1 John 4:14 KJV. 

Any man or woman that does not believe or accept the testimony of Scripture, of the record God gave of His Son, is lost. Any man or woman that does not have the Son, the one and only Saviour, is lost and perishing this very hour. Any man or woman that does not have the Spirit of truth, any man or woman that is not born of the Spirit of God, is dead in their sins, and following the spirit of the world, the spirit of error, the spirit of the antichrist. Again, let no spirit deceive you. For the believer, we have the Spirit of truth as our teacher and guide unto all truth. The Spirit of the Lord is greater than the spirit that is in the world. If one is not following the Spirit of truth and being led by the Spirit of truth, they are being led away by the spirit of error. They are deceived. 

Not every spirit will confess that Jesus has come in the flesh, that the Son was, and is, God manifest in the flesh, and not every spirit will confess Him in all truth and righteousness. Try the spirits! Try them by the word of God, not by your own feelings and opinions. Try the spirits according to the Scriptures, by the word of God. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 KJV - "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." Make a careful examination. Prove the spirits. Believe not every spirit. This calls for a sober mind, an alert and ready mind. Hold fast to that which is good, the word of God.

A mind distracted and drunken with the things of the world is a mind open to seducing doctrines of devils. False spirits call men and women to "open their minds", and go with the flow of modern culture and the modern world. In Christendom, this translates to go with the flow of modern Christianity. Modern Christianity is a false Christianity, led away by the spirit of error and apostasy. It is drunken in the grey area of compromise with the world, with the spirit or error, the spirit of antichrist. Modern Culture and Modern Christendom cannot hear the true word of God. They reject the Spirit of truth, they reject His reproof, His correction, and His gracious and loving call to repentance. They repudiate the command of the Lord to come out and be ye separate. Many are given to ERROR.


"Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light." - Ephesians 5:14 KJV.


It is high time to awaken out of sleep. There are many false spirits in the world. An antichrist spirit is rising this very hour. Precious souls are on the line. Those led by the Spirit of truth have overcome the spirit of error. They know the truth, and have the sure word of the Lord. Those led by the spirit of error are overcome by delusion and deception, and are surely on their way to destruction. Which spirit are you listening to? What spirit is leading you? Awaken to the snare of the world. Flee the spirit of error.


Beloved, try the spirits.

Now!


2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV - "For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."
Behold...NOW is the accepted time to call on the name of the LORD.
NOW is the day of His great salvation. NOW is the day that the LORD will save the truly repentant sinner, the poor soul that places his unfeigned faith in Christ Jesus.
To the proud, hard hearted, unsaved, and unrepentant the day is coming that the door of time will close, and the day of salvation will pass away. Standing before God the unsaved will not have NOW, for the accepted time will have passed away. God will not hear thee, nor will He succour thee (help, deliver) on that day, but will reject the souls that rejected Him. Whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be saved. Do not harden your heart, but call on the LORD... NOW!
Romans 13:11 KJV - "And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed."
To the saved...Behold...NOW is the accepted time. Behold...NOW is the day of salvation. Knowing the time is NOW, it is high time to AWAKEN OUT OF SLEEP, for NOW is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
Romans 13:12 KJV - "The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light."
The day is at hand. The time is NOW. Let us cast off the works of darkness, the sin that so easily entangles! We ought to confess our sins to the LORD, who is faithful to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). Let us put on the armour of light.
1 Thessalonians 5:7-10 KJV - "For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him."
The day of God's wrath is ready to be revealed in these last days. Judgment against all sin, wickedness, and unrighteousness. The unsaved are asleep and drunken in the night, the night of sin and darkness. The wrath of God abides on them. How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation? (Hebrews 2:3). The call to the unsaved, a call from the God of heaven, a call from the Spirit of truth, is "Escape for thy life".
NOW.
NOW is the day of salvation.
To the saved, we are called to WATCH. To be SOBER, to be ALERT. To be AWAKE. We are to have on our breastplate of faith and love, and our helmet...the HOPE of salvation. The saved are not appointed to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.
Titus 2:11-13 KJV - " For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ."
Behold, NOW is the accepted time.
Behold, NOW is the day of salvation.
Behold, NOW is the time to call on the name of the LORD.
Behold, NOW is the time, in this PRESENT WORLD, to look for that BLESSED HOPE, the glorious appearing of the great God and our SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST.

Death, The Great Reality


"What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah." -Psalms 89:48 KJV.

Death is the great reality. Every soul has an appointment with death that will be kept. "...and none can keep alive his own soul." - Psalms 22:29b KJV. No man is immune from the threat and reality of death. No man can keep his own soul alive, nor deliver his own soul from the hand of the grave. And so man fears his own death. Many souls are trapped in fear. The fear of death...the fear of loss, the fear of sickness, the fear of spirits, the fear of the dark, the fear of not living, the fear of the unknown, the fear of man...But the Lord Jesus says in Matthew 10:28 KJV - "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."  The Lord Jesus says clearly to FEAR GOD. Our fears are misplaced, we fear this, we fear that, when we ought to fear God and depart from evil. God alone has the power to destroy both the body and soul in hell. This is a solemn warning from the Lord Jesus Himself. No man can keep the soul alive, and no man can kill the soul. The soul is in the hand of the living God. Every breath a living soul takes, every beat of the heart, the very soul of every man and woman, boy and girl, is in the hands of God. No man will cheat death.

Then there are those who say they have no fear. They proclaim they have no fear of death. Bring it on, they taunt. With hardened hearts, they have no fear of God. They proudly boast "I am the Captain of my own soul, the Master of my own destiny!" They do what is right in their own eyes, acting as their own god.  Romans 3:18 KJV  says- "There is no fear of God before their eyes." Such is the state of all of us before being saved. But many remain in this rebellious, unrepentant state before God. Some LOVE the darkness, hating the LIGHT...but they ought to FEAR GOD. Death is a great reality, and no man can keep alive his own soul. No man can deliver his soul from the hand of the grave. No man can save himself! There is a darkness to be feared greatly. When death comes, and the hand of the grave comes for the souls of the unsaved, and the fires of hell begin to engulf them, then they will surely fear Him who is able to cast both body and soul into hell. Accounts of horrid screams and cries on deathbeds of the unsaved at the moment of departure testify to this fact. They sense the flames in their last moments. When at last their foot is indeed slipping into the depths of hell, they will know that the LORD alone delivers souls from the grave, and from hell, but alas...it will be too late! They REJECTED the LORD. Others go along in life as if there is no God, yet having no fear of God before their eyes. They are enamoured with the things of man, and of the world, and the beguilements of the devil. Suddenly, death is upon them and their souls unprepared. They NEGLECTED the Lord. STOP trifling with your souls...NOW is the day of salvation. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. 

David said..."For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?" - Psalms 56:13 KJV. Man is NOT the master of his own destiny, nor the captain of his own soul...Only God keeps the soul alive, only God delivers the soul from death, from the hand of the grave. Only the LORD can save a man that he may walk before God in the light of the living.  In His great mercy, God sent His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus the Lord, to save sinful man from death and hell. Christ died for our sins on the cross, was buried in a grave, and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. The Lord Jesus, God manifest in the flesh, conquered death and the grave once and for all!  

"Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage." - Hebrews 2:14-15 KJV. 

Man is subject to death, to the grave, to the fear of death...but the Lord Jesus triumphed over death, triumphed over the grave, and triumphed over he, the devil, who had the power of death! Note it says the devil HAD the power of death. The Lord Jesus HAS the keys to death and hell. The captives can now be free through the power of the Lord Jesus Christ! Our souls were doomed to die, to go to the grave, to be judged and face the wrath of God, to go to the fires of hell, and the eternal lake of fire. Our sin barring us from God's heaven for all of eternity. But, there is the SAVIOUR! Death is a great reality for certain, but an even greater reality is that we can have the SAVIOUR. Come to Him that you may live, that you may walk before God in the light in the living. Come to Him in repentance and faith, and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. Through Him and Him alone, God shall deliver thy soul from the hand of the grave. 

Our works are useless and our religion is vain. Salvation is of the LORD. 
By His grace, through faith alone, it is a gift of God, not of works. 

This could be a souls final warning. No man knows his appointed time of death. No man knows when the Lord Jesus may swiftly return. "How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation?" - Hebrews 2:3 KJV.  How shall we escape what? How shall we escape the hand of the grave? How shall we escape the consequences and judgment of our sins? How shall we escape the wrath of God? How shall we escape the fires of hell and damnation? Do not neglect so great a salvation! This is a solemn warning to those who refuse to come to the Lord Jesus, to repent and believe on the One whom God hath sent. For the unsaved their souls are in great danger of falling into the hand of the grave, into the hands of the living God, who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. But for those of us who are saved by Him, we also know that God alone has the power to SAVE both the body and soul that we may walk before Him in the light of the living. We have not delivered our own souls, and we do not preach thus. We do not preach ourselves, but the Gospel of Christ Jesus the LORD and SAVIOUR.

Death is the great reality. 

Only Christ Jesus the Lord can deliver the soul from the hand of the grave.

Beware Of Ecumenism!



"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: 
For what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? 
And what communion hath light with darkness? 
And what concord hath Christ with Belial? 
Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? 
For ye are the temple of the living God; 
As God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; 
and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, 
and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 
and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, 
saith the Lord Almighty." 

- 1 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV.

The Good Seed


For as the rain cometh down, 
and the snow from heaven, 
and returneth not thither, 
but watereth the earth, 
and maketh it bring forth and bud, 
that it may give seed to the sower,
and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:
it shall not return unto me void,
but it shall accomplish that which I please, 
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
- Isaiah 55:10-11 KJV

Satan Has A Plan For Your Life




As surely as there is a living God in heaven, there is a devil. The devil is a real being. It matters not if you believe in him, it will not change the fact that he truly exists. The word of God says that there is a devil, and it is so. He is the prince and the power of the air, he is the god of this world. He is the serpent, he is Lucifer, he is Satan. And Satan has a plan for your life. His plan for your life includes;

Temptation. Not towards good, but towards evil. Not towards God, but towards himself, away from God. Temptation to sin. He will lure you, seduce you, manipulate you, coerce you, whatever it takes to lead you down the road to sin and destruction. He knows you well. He studies you. He knows your weaknesses. He knows your pet sins, where you are most vulnerable, and will use those sins against you. He would not have you fear God and depart from evil, but he would have you shun and reject God and indulge in evil. Satan is the great tempter. 

Lies. Satan is a liar. Jesus said to the Pharisees, "Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not." (John 8:43-45 KJV). He will fill your head with lies. Big fat lies, sweet little lies. Satan is a natural liar, lies are his natural tongue and language. White lies, half truths, and disinformation are included in this package. His plan does not include the truth that will set you free, nor the truth that will save your soul. He wants you to have a lack of knowledge concerning the truth, to be void of understanding. He will dumb you down. He knows the Scriptures well, and will use them craftily against you to lead you into fatal error. Satan is a master of lies. There is no truth in him. If you are believing his lies you cannot hear nor understand the word of God, and cannot believe the truth. You are right where Satan wants you to be. 

Deception. Being the father of lies, Satan wants you deceived. One of his great deceptions is that he does not even exist. He wants you to think and believe that what you think and believe is true, apart from the word of God. He wants you to think that there is no God. Or, he wants you to think that there is a God and to be very religious. Satan wants you very busy, active, and about his business. Your work is very important to him. Salvation by works is at the heart of his gospel. Beware! Another great masterful deception of his is to make folks think they are saved when they are not saved at all. He will beguile you with many attractive crafts, amusements, entertainments, and deceptions. Sleight of hand, cunning, and trickery are his speciality. He is the master of illusion. 

Sweet Savour. Jesus said to Satan..."Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men". (Matthew 16:23 KJV). Satan savours the things of men. Satan wants you to savour the things of men. The things of the world, the things of the earth. Not the things of God. He wants you to be worldly, sensual, carnal, to love the things of this world. It's wisdom, it's philosophy, it's beliefs. His plan includes the shunning of the word of God as foolishness."For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God." (1 Corinthians 1:18 KJV). Satan wants you to reject the Gospel, neglect the Gospel, mock the things of God, and see the things of God as foolishness. His plan and purpose for your life is that you perish, to distract you from ever being truly saved by the Lord. If you are saved, he wants to weaken you and cause you to stumble. Satan has many a sweet delight for man to savour, to lure them away from the truth of the Gospel of Christ Jesus the Lord.  

Worship. Satan tempted the Lord Jesus with worship. "Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." (Matthew 4:8-11 KJV). Satan desired the worship of Jesus Himself! He desires your worship as well. Worship other gods, worship self, worship him. Maybe worship a false "Christ". He is hidden behind all false worship. Worship anyone but the Lord God of heaven, anyone but the true and real Lord Jesus Christ. Ultimately Satan desires to be worshipped as God, on the throne of God. 

Faith. Belief. Satan would have you have a form of belief, a form of faith. Even in God. Satan and his devils believe in God, and tremble. "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble." (James 2:19 KJV). He will have you believe and have faith in anything under the sun, as long as it is not Biblical faith in Christ Jesus the Lord alone for salvation. He would have you avoid repentance and faith towards God like the plague. He does not want you free from sin. Belief in yourself is one of his favorite teachings. Belief in another Jesus, a Jesus other than the true Jesus according to the Scriptures, is his grand deception.  

Gospel. Satan has a gospel of his own. A gospel of self. A man-centered gospel, a social gospel. A works gospel. Many false prophets are in the world, and they are all working for Satan. They transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, pretending to be someone they are not. Beware, they preach a gospel. Many come in the name of Christ, preach a Christ, and teach a Christ that is not according to the Scriptures. "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed." (Galatians 1: 6-9 KJV). Men preach another gospel. Women preach another gospel. Even angels may come in visions with a new revelation, another gospel. Satan's gospel is accursed and doomed by the wrath of God. A damnable heresy that leads souls astray into the pit of hell. Satan has Bibles, Bible Schools, and lots of gospel music that seems to honor God. It may honor God with the lips, but Satan's heart is far from God. His desire is to see your heart remain far from God as well. His agenda is to remove you from the true Gospel with another gospel, or to remove the true Gospel from you and replace it with another gospel. 

Church. Satan desires worship. Satan encourages faith and belief. Satan has a gospel. Satan has ministers. Satan has Bibles. And Satan has churches. Lots of churches. Satan loves church. He has small, humble churches. He has megachurches. "Go to church" is his catch phrase. Note the phrase "go to church" is nowhere in God's word. Satan has temples, cathedrals, and massive arenas. They attract the masses. Satan is deeply religious. Long robes are often his trademark, not horns and a pitchfork. Nearly all buildings that are called "churches" are his. “Satan has certainly been the best friend the church has ever had, as he has kept it in business all these years.” A quote from Anton Szandor LaVey, author of The Satanic Bible. Yes, Satan is a friend to these apostate "church" systems that have beautifully adorned structures and buildings called "churches". In the word of God, the "church" is simply a called out assembly of believers. Those whom the Lord Jesus has saved. These believers met in homes rather than large, organized structures. Satan desires that one be in one of his churches every time the door is open. The "unchurched" are looked down upon, and made to feel guilty and ashamed. Beware, Satan has churches.  

Captivity. To bind you up in sin and affliction. Jesus healed a woman on the Sabbath day in the Gospel of Luke. The Jews did not like it one bit. Jesus answered them "And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?" (Luke 13:16 KJV)( For full context, see Luke 13:14-17 KJV). Satan binds men and women. This woman was bound for 18 long years. Satan's will for your life is that you be bound in sin, addicted to sin, and wallowing in the muck and mire of sin. For you to be good slave to sin is his plan for you. He wants you as a captive. "And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will." (2 Tim 2:26 KJV). His plan for your life includes living in sin. Pride, which is a sin, is his purpose for your life. Satan oppresses and depresses the soul, and afflicts man with many an ailment. Jesus set the woman free. The Lord Jesus has come to set you free. 

Possession. Satan wants to have you, and to sift you as wheat. He desired to do so with Simon Peter..."And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:" (Luke 22:31 KJV) He wants you for his own. All of you. He wants your love and devotion, he wants your very soul. Many make a deal with him, selling their own souls to the devil. He wants control over you, he wants to possess you. Literally. 

Treasure Hunt. Satan wants to devour you. "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:". (1 Peter 5:8 KJV). Like a lion on the prowl, he seeks flesh to eat, blood to drink, souls to devour. He wants to rip you and your life to pieces, all the while promising peace and safety. He has no love or care for you. He does not treasure you nor your company. He is a predator on the hunt for your very soul. Satan would have you drunken with the pleasures of the world, sedated if you will, weak and blinded. The hunt is on. He walks about. He seeks WHOM he may devour, those who are not aware of him, ignorant of his devices, naive to his deceptions, those fallen prey to his beguilements. 

Advantage. He wants to have advantage over you. "Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices." (2 Corinthians 2:11 KJV). Satan wants you to remain ignorant of his many devices against you. Darkness is his domain, and his plan is to keep you in darkness where he may work his plan for your life in secret. 

Your Guardian Angel. He wants to be your "angel of light". "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." (2 Corinthians 11:14-15 KJV). He transforms himself into an angel of light, pretending that he is for your good. That he is here to help you, to aid you in some way. Beware, he is not for your good. He comes even in the name of Christ, even as Christ. So do his ministers.  

Destruction. Satan comes to destroy you, to steal from you, and to kill you. He wants your blood on his hands. He wants you dead. He is the master of destruction, and loathes the thought of your salvation. His plan is for your ultimate destruction. Remember this fact while you are being beguiled and entertained by his wiles. The road of the devil is a broad road, leading to destruction.  

Theft. To take the word of God from you. "Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved." (Luke 8:12 KJV). Satan does not want you to know the truth, he does not want you to have the word of God in your heart or in your mind. He will corrupt it, pervert it, counterfeit it, replace it with other words, words of men, words of devils, or choke it out with the sins and cares of this life. He is very crafty and cunning, and even has counterfeit Bibles to replace the word of God in your heart and mind. Satan wants you to fall by the way side.  

Death. Satan is the lord of death. The fear of death is his masterpiece. His culture is the culture of death. Speaking of Jesus, "Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage." (Hebrews 2:14-15 KJV) Your personal death is Satan's desire. He loathes your life, he abhors your soul. He plans and plots your demise with exact precision. He has a detailed blueprint for you premeditated murder. Satan is a murderer. If it were not for the grace of the God of heaven, you would be dead already. Further more, Christ Jesus is the Great Deliverer from the one who holds men in his power in their fear of death. 

Destiny. He wants you, the unsaved, in hell. The Lord Jesus speaking, "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels." (Matthew 25:41 KJV). Hell is a place prepared for the devil and his angels. Hell is a place of everlasting fire. Satan is going there one day, and he wants you there as well. He would have you perish in your sins, unsaved, going to the grave believing a lie. He wants you lost, and to stay lost, to die lost, and to step out into eternity lost. He will promise you the world, but his desire is that you lose your own soul. He will promise that you will find your destiny, but it's another lie of the devil. Satan wants you dead and lifeless, and he wants your soul in hell. 

Final Destination.  He does not want you, the unsaved, to know his final destination. "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever." (Rev 20:10 KJV). While the world loves to sing "I am on the highway to hell" like it's all a big party, he will not tell you the truth about hell. Hell is a literal place. Satan and all that follow after him will go there. It is not a party place after all, but a place of weeping and gnashing of teeth. A place of torment. But there is a place worse that the torments of hell. It is a place where death and hell are cast, along with Satan, his angels, and all that are not saved. It is called the lake of fire and brimstone. It's his final destination. Torment day and night for ever and ever. It's your end as well if you are not saved and do not repent and turn to God and be ye saved. "And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (Revelation 20:12-15 KJV)

You have an enemy. His name is Satan, the devil. Whether you believe in him or not, he exists. He has a masterful plan for your life. He plans to destroy you to the uttermost. To walk his path all you have to do is stay on the broad road that leads to destruction. The popular path among men. The accepted path of men. He is the Pied Piper playing his beautiful song, leading many souls to their destruction. Shun the word of God, do as thou wilt, and you are in his grasp this very hour. Attend the devil's meetings, his concerts, his theatre, and his arenas. Listen to his preaching. Plug in to his stream with your device of choice, and listen to the voice of the serpent. His sermons are pleasant to the eye, pleasant to the ear, pleasant to the senses...but damnable to the soul. The visuals are amazing. The music is deeply moving. His words ring seemingly true to the natural man. Such is the art and craft of Satan's delusion. Believe it or not...

Satan has a plan for your life. 

Awaken. Open your darkened eyes. If you are yet an unbeliever, it might be that the glorious light of the Gospel of Christ Jesus the Lord will shine upon you this day. 

"But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake."  - 2 Corinthians 4:3-5 KJV

The Lord Jesus is greater than Satan. He has come to destroy the works of the devil. He is the One and Only Saviour. He alone opens blinded eyes. 

"He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." - 1 John 3:8 KJV

"For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them." - Luke 9:56a KJV

The Lord Jesus has come to save sinners, sinners captive of Satan, sinners who are servants of sin. Satan is the destroyer of men. Christ Jesus the Lord is the destroyer of the works of Satan, and the Saviour of men. His Gospel has come, in the very words of the Lord Jesus Himself,...

"To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me."  - Acts 26:18 KJV

Turn to the living God, and be ye saved. 

For the believer, the hunt is still on. Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 

"And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen." - Romans 16:20 KJV
