Time seems to go faster than it used ti. It doe that the days will e shortened for the very elects sake. Matthew 24:22. We are  i n the last minutes on God's timeclock. Jesus is coming just any day now. My sister & I used to sing that song. Well she never mad it to the rapture. Jesus took her home this Christmas it will be 5 years. A lot of people don't want to thing about death. It is a fact of life..I was singing at a funeral of the lady I worked for. I was sitting on the front bench & they called me to sing. I had a shawl on my shoulders. I stood up & the Lord wispered in my ear, just as the shwl falling gently so is the death of my saints.We just put on mortality as we enter eternity.I just thought of something: one of our dear brothers went home this week.I wasn't able to go to the funeral but  i was praying for the family, brother Walter Baird isn't suffering anymore. No more pain & most of all he is with Jesus our Lord. It wont be very long & Jwsus will come & take us home.Some people don' believe in the rapture, but they believe in the resurrection. They are both the same. Jesus was resurrected, waiting for our Father to tell him to go get his bride. He will split the eastern skies & so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 thessalonians 5:8 But let us who are of the dy be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith & love ; & for a helmet , the hope of salvation. 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath,but to obtain salvation through or Lord Jesus Christ.. 14 Now we exhort you brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded,support the weak,be patient toward all men 15 see that none render evil for evil, unto any man,..rejoice,pray, give thanks for all things, quecch not the Sirit, despise not prophesying,, prove all things,abstain from the very apperiace of evil,. Be ready to give accouny of the hope you have. strive to trust God for he is faithful. He will never fail us.Ourrighteous is as filthy rags but we through faith put on his righteousness. Christ in us  In ourselves e are nothing but, in Christ we are worthy.

Do we do things for others out of sympathy, obedience to God's voice, or the urging of people?  I am a compassionate person.  Sometimes that is good, sometimes it is not.  I've had to learn that sometimes we cannot intervene.  I had a pastor who would step in when God would try to get her daughters attention.  It was a sad situation.  The last time I talked to the daughter, she was in a nursing home.  One leg was amputated and her veins were blown out from drug use.  She was a severe diabetic and, as far as I know, she never repented.  I hope she did.  We can tie the hands of God.  I had to come to the place where I gave my kids to the Lord, even if it meant them being put in prison or me never seeing them again.  I have a son in prison.  He is serving three life sentences and 70 years.  No, he didn't' t kill anyone.  He was innocent but he is still there.  I haven't been able to visit him in four years.  He has accepted the Lord.  That is one consolation to me.  My oldest son slammed the door and said I'd never see my granddaughter.  I'd had a bad case of TMJ and had not slept in days.  I had just gotten back from the doctors and had taken the medicine.  I couldn't keep awake.  I didn't see or hear about him for ten years.  God spoke to my heart and said my children would return to their borders.  In less than a year, my son was staying in my house.  He has been there for six months.  We talk once in a while, now.  He was run over by a 1 ton van across his chest, slipped off a diesel into 2 transmissions, and was hit by a falling tree on the side of his head.  God has been trying to get his attention.  In and through this, he is still not accepting truth but he will.  The only reason I tell these things is to let people know that there is hope and God never fails.  Even in the darkest hours, he is working on our behalf.  God is faithful.  He doesn't have any favorites.  What He does for one, He will do for all.  Hebrews 13:8 says, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  He loves us all the same.

Miracles, I've experienced and seen many. Am I special? No more than any other Christian. Hebrews 13:8 teaches us that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. God does not have any favorites. What He does for one, He will do for others. We just need to believe (accept as fact, live by, and rely on). I got this definition from Webster's Dictionary. Believing is not just knowing. The devil knows that God is real but he does not live for him. Scripture teaches us that if all the miracles Jesus did was written down, the world could not contain them. Not everyone that saith, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven but he that doeth the will of my Father in heaven.  God has the plan for the way things are to be done. If we do things His way, then we will reap the benefits. If we rebel, we also reap the fruit of our doings. Many are sick and weak because they are reaping what they have sown. Unity is needed in a church and a marriage. I do know that if there are sour things in your marriage, you need to make peace and work things out. I used to gripe and complain about things. Then, one day while I was washing dishes, the Lord spoke to my heart. I had to repent and ask God to help me. He did. Sin and a hard heart will prevent God's miracles. The Lord said that it is the little foxes that spoil the vine. It is a good thing to ask the Lord to open up his searchlight and examine our hearts. I guarantee you that if you open your heart to the searchlight of the Holy Spirit, He will show you your sin. I was teaching some young people in Florida, and they proceeded to tell me how their dad cheated on his tests, etc. That very day, he said that he was perfect, he never sinned. I have news for you. Jesus said, " there is none righteous, no not one". Our righteousness is by faith in Jesus Christ. Human righteousness is as filthy rags. As the church judges itself, and draws nigh to Him, we will see more miracles. Spending time with the Lord in prayer and worship teaches us how we ought we to think of ourselves.

This morning, as I was praying, the Lord dropped a scripture into my heart.  (1 Peter 4:18) If the righteous scarcely be saved, where will the ungodly (godless) or sinners ( those who don't know Jesus or practice sinning) stand.  The thought came to me about some that proclaimed to be a Christian and they were living in outright sin.  I talked to a person the other day who jumped me up one side and down the other.  They were very angry.  I really didn't understand why.  God's Word says no sin will enter heaven.  Romans 6:1 asks "Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?  God forbid.  "  It is a fact that our righteousness is of Jesus who paid the ransom for sin on Calvary's tree.  We, by faith through grace, believe.  The key word here is believe.  I got curious years ago and looked it up in my Webster's Old World dictionary.  Believe means to accept as fact, rely on and live by.  It is knowing that Jesus, who lived, died, and paid our sin debt is the Son of God.  He was born of a virgin and now sits making intercession for His saints.  We are to live by His teachings and example to the best of our ability.  We will grow as a newborn babe in Jesus.  As we grow, we learn his ways.  We love Him and desire to be more like Him.  Jesus is our advocate with the Father.  1 John 1:9  tells us that if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanses us from all unrighteousness.  Jesus went to heaven and sent us the Holy Spirit to be our helper and guide.  How ought we to live?  This is what I've been telling you.  Judgment is coming.  It must begin in the house of God.  The Lord will judge and we will receive our rewards.  God is getting his saints ready for the coming of his Son, Jesus.  1 Corinthians 6:9-10 teaches us that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.  Be not deceived neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will be in heaven.  It teaches that some of us were like this until Jesus saved us.  He forgives and forgets.  It is hard for people to forget.  We must keep on striving to be like Jesus, our Lord and Savior, who is coming soon to judge the quick and the dead.

This may seem like a weird topic to talk about in a world of name it and claim it, saying all your troubles will be over when you become a Christian. Becoming a Christian is not about the ideology of getting anything you want, when you want it. It is a life, greater than any other because Jesus is with you and gives you peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. Jesus is not a genie in a bottle granting whatever you want. He is the Son of God, who paid the ransom for sinful man, so that we don't have to go to a devil's hell. Just that alone should make man stand up and consider his ways. God's word says hell is enlarging itself every day. Read the actual story of the rich man and Lazarus starting at Luke 16:19. It is true that we are blessed, but blessings are not always money and fame. Jesus is about so much more. So many people followed Jesus for the loaves and fishes (blessings). The reality in life is that it rains on the just and the unjust. Life happens. We are not shielded from the problems of life. Many times, life's problems are but a consequence of our own choices. The Lord does not keep us from all of life's woes but, with the woes, we have Jesus' Holy Spirit to comfort, guide, strengthen us, and be with us through it all. God honors faith. We do good works because we love him, not to get him to do something we want. We trust him because we believe Him and have faith in Him. We know that he loves us. Even Hitler, the murderer of millions of Jews could have been saved if he had repented and turned from his wicked ways. Look at Saul who became the Apostle Paul. He killed and put in prison many Christians before his conversion.  He is in heaven waiting for the rest of God's people. We all have a cross to bear. Jesus tells us in Matthew 16:24 to take up our cross and follow him. He asked what would you give in exchange for your soul? The cross is our self will, our flesh. We are flesh and blood, but when we serve God, we submit our fleshly desires to Him. All that we receive from God is by faith, through his grace and mercy. Because we are human, we will have heartache and failure but Jesus walks with us through it all.  My twin sister suffered all her life with illnesses. How I prayed for God to deliver her but God gave her grace to live her life that way. She had great faith and a great testimony. People would go to encourage her and, instead, would receive uplifting and encouragement themselves. Study 1 Peter 4:19 and rejoice because God is faithful.
