WHOEVER calls upon the name of the Lord SHALL be saved – Romans 10:13. Let Jesus make ALL your sins as white as snow forever. Yes, ALL.

romans 10-13

“Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved,” Romans 10:13.

Whoever, means, whoever. No matter what your past, if you haven’t called upon the name of the Lord to be saved and cleansed of all your sins by Jesus, now, is the time. God loves you and wants you to be reconciled with Him as Father, you as His child, so He can spend eternity with you in heaven. Without Jesus, the only way to the Father, many will perish for eternity for rejecting His One and only Son. It’s not His will for it to be you. Please, don’t delay. Do it today. The coming of the Lord is very soon.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” (Romans 3:23).

Literally, 100% of people have sinned and need to be saved and cleansed from all unrighteousness (sins) through Jesus Christ. There is only One who is sinless, and that is Jesus, the Son of God, Himself, so He gave Himself as the perfect sacrifice, taking all the sins of the world upon Himself.

Isaiah 1:18, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

You need only receive by faith what Jesus already did for you on the cross and through His death and resurrection.

It’s very easy you need only believe these words with all your heart for yourself:

Romans 10:9-10, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation…For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

God is waiting with open arms to rejoice and celebrate you coming to Him too

Luke 15:11-24

11 Then He said: “A certain man had two sons. 12 And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood. 13 And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living. 14 But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want. 15 Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16 And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.
17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, 19 and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.” ’
20 “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. 23 And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; 24 for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.

How Do I Know I Know I Am Going to Heaven?, Salvation, The Gospel of Jesus Christ

God spoke to me from Joel 1:8 this morning – Please, now is the Day of Salvation

Joel 1_8 - Now is the day of salvation

Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.

JOEL 1:8

I dreamed of the above verse – simply the reference – seconds before I woke up this morning, had no idea what is was, but knew God was speaking to me, so I looked it up.

At first, I was like, “Is this for me, Lord? No idea what you are trying to tell ME or how it applies to my life right now.” I was still groggy. Then I picked up the Word again and skimmed through Joel, it’s only three chapters.

I put the Word down and heard in my spirit, “Virgins. Why would virgins lament for their husband.” I answered, “Oh, Lord, Husband, capital ‘H’, as in You, the Husband of the church Your bride.” Tears poured and poured down my face, and I strongly felt the presence of the Lord. I knew, He wanted to me write about the virgins, their oil lamps, and salvation.

The time is very late, and the Lord doesn’t want anyone to be like the foolish virgins. He died for all, but we must each choose Him for ourselves. It’s His will that none would perish for eternity, but we know that His will won’t happen for everyone because He’s given us free will. True love allows us to choose Him or not.

The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins – Matthew 25:1-13  (NKJV)

“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.  Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.

“And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.

“Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’

“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.

Oil represents the Holy Spirit.

The wise virgins chose Jesus as their Savior and carried His Holy Spirit, and the foolish ones never chose Him and were devoid of His Holy Spirit.

This is why He used Joel 1:8 to speak to me this morning and share this word from Him. We need only look around and see the signs of the times, look at Israel, and see we are closer than ever to the Lord Jesus to take up His church.

Lament – (verb) – to passionately express sorrow or regret for.

God loves you and doesn’t want anyone to have to lament being left behind, being locked out, devoid of His Holy Spirit, devoid of the free gift of salvation that we receive by faith alone, never by good works but by His one great work alone – His death and resurrection, His taking our place, so there’s a place in eternity for anyone who chooses Him.

So, how do you have total assurance of eternal security with God? It’s a simple choice and act of humbling yourself and choosing Jesus by faith alone.

Admit you’re a sinner

Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Ephesians 2:8-9 – For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith —and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

Believe in your heart 

Romans 10:9-10 – That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

Call upon the name of the Lord

Romans 10:13 – For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

The Lord is says, “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).

I pray if you haven’t called upon the name of the Lord that you don’t wait another second.

Said as a prayer

God, I’ve sinned against You, but I choose to turn from my sin now. By faith, I confess ‘Jesus is Lord’, believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. I call upon the name of the Lord, and I am now saved and fully justified by God. My oil lamp is now forever full, and I will not have to lament the day my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ comes in Jesus’ name, amen.

Jesus Wasn’t “Nice” – Christians Mustn’t Be Nice Beyond Wisdom and Effectiveness for His Kingdom

lion 2 Jesus was not nice

The Holy Spirit said to me recently, “Jesus wasn’t nice”, so I looked it up and came across this excellent post….

Jesus Was Not Nice — and You Shouldn’t be, Either

Very worth the read especially in you are in a pruning process right now and getting delivered from fear of man or man’s opinion and want to say ALL He’d have you say whether people think it is “nice” or not.

Then the Lord said to me a little later, “Christians Mustn’t Be Nice Beyond Wisdom and Effectiveness for His Kingdom,” and that we can be “nice to the point of being naive.”

And when we do say what He’d have us say, all we can do after is leave the lost to the Lord and pray for them and keep loving them as He does with us. It has taken time for Him to get me to see things about myself that He was trying to show me. I just didn’t get it but He got me there, so I could repent, not in condemnation but in love because He shows us “us” so we can live our best lives and fulfill His plans for our lives.

We can trust the Holy Spirit to water the words He uses us to bring forth, and we know we wage not against flesh and blood, and there is always a battle for the soul of each person we share the Lord with. So we pray, pray, pray.

Prayer

Lord, that each of Your children do the work You’ve called them to do even if it means not being “nice” because You’d rather not the death of a sinner. We trust that with obedience to the Holy Spirit, fervent prayer, and your anointing on our words that You will be with us working in the hearts of the people with whom we share Your truth. Help us to share Your gospel boldly and unedited so we are effective for the winning of souls and to heal the sick and raise the dead, so we are wise in the way You called us to be wise in You, Your Word, and by Your Spirit. In Jesus’ name, amen.

How the Masses of this Nation Have Been Deceived by Mere Vocabulary (and Satan is Behind It)

Mere Vocabulary.png

Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me.
Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word.
You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.

JOHN 8:42-45

With the latest unrestricted abortion laws in NY and other wicked leaders trying to pass similar, abominable laws passed, many are shocked, heartbroken, and often in disbelief with the level of wickedness the masses have come to.

How can something so obviously wicked, so purely evil not only pass but be applauded and celebrated?

The words of Jesus above explain it perfectly, “You are of your father the devil.” Those not in Christ have not been translated out of darkness, out of the grips of Satan, and he is their father. What a revelation!

Jesus also says to those still being fathered by Satan that they cannot understand Him and are NOT ABLE to listen to My word.

I see so many people trying to debate with those still bound by Satan about abortion, fruitlessly and often without even using the Word of God which is living and active.

His children wear themselves out trying to convince Satan’s children to change their minds when they haven’t had them renewed by God. We must see these people with spiritual eyes – in chains, blinded and with 24/7 lies being fed to them. Because they are bound, they do not see, cannot hear, will not understand God’s truth.

This is why we must pray and fast for the lost and for principalities and powers of darkness, the spirits behind abortion, murder, idolatry, human sacrifice, death, perversion, human trafficking and many more to be broken over these people, so they can receive and be drawn to the Lord by the Holy Spirit. And for God’s exposure and justice to be done in the natural.

But if we give these bound ones anything, any of our words, they must be Word and love drenched. Not attacks comparable to what they’d give us.

Deceived by Mere Vocabulary

The above explains why the masses can EASILY be deceived by the mere use of replacement vocabulary.

  • Abortion (lie) => Murder, human sacrifice, idolatry of self (Truth)
  • Racist (lie) => Wisdom to secure and protect a country with walls is of God, and He commanded Israel to build one for that very reason. (Truth) Not wanting walls to secure the U.S. is also a cover up for some other agenda (e.g. for continued evil to proceed, human and drug trafficking, for the destruction of America in many way, financial destruction, etc). It makes no sense to not secure a country. Only Satan’s control over people could get them to be so deceived by a mere word ‘racist’. As soon as this word is thrown on top of something, the still bound by Satan accept that lie as truth without researching and seeking truth for themselves.
  • Choice (lie) => Choosing to slaughter one’s own child in the womb is murder and an abomination in the eyes of God. (Truth) The bound, blind, and deceived by Satan have made such idols of self that all they see is choice. Throw choice on murdering one’s own child, and the demonic armies rise up in people and inspire them to march the streets to murder their own.
  • Intolerance (lie) => The vocabulary justification demonic spirits related use to deceive and enrage in order to normalize all sorts of perversion, confusion, and the identities he stole from many. (Truth) Of course real intolerance can exist, but not in the way it is being used widely today.

These are a few on many examples. The point is, as maddening, abominable, and heartbreaking all of this is and has been, it is clear that Satan has these people bound. Because HOW else could the be so easily deceived by mere words?

But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”

But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.” And they went to another village.

Luke 9:53-56

I had to chuckle when I first read the above verses, Luke 9:53-56.

When I was young in the Lord and ignorant of His Word, I’d had similar thoughts about the wicked, but the more I grew in Christ, by His Word and Holy Spirit teaching me the more I felt the heart of God in me to see the lost as Jesus does.

He didn’t come to destroy people but to save them.

I know the Word refers to the wicked a lot and many will harden their hearts, stay wicked, and send themselves to hell, but only God knows who they are.

As the church, it is our responsibility to pray for the lost, share the gospel with them while SIMULTANEOUSLY obeying God’s Word and doing His Word by doing justice on the earth regarding abortion (pray, elect pro-life public servants to office, fight to get pro-life laws passes, fight against human trafficking, and again I will say, pray as in on the offensive, spiritual warfare.

Prayer

Lord, we break the power of Satan over the lost, over those still owned and bound by him. We speak to their stony hearts and say become hearts of flesh. She speak to the veils and scales over their eyes and say be removed and cast into the dark abyss. We speak to their ears and open them to Your truth. We drown out the lies of the enemy with Your truth. Draw them by Your Holy Spirit, prepare their hearts to receive Your Holy Word from Your harvesters. Give the dreams, signs, and visions of You Lord Jesus Christ with open arms waiting for them to come home. In Jesus name we pray, amen.

Please share so this prayer of agreement stretches everywhere.

God uses us to pray the lost into the kingdom. Thank you.

Pray for the Church

O God, Shake, Break, and Wake the Church

shake break and wake your church Lord

Prayer

O God,

Shake, break, and wake the Church.

It’s been passive and way out of balance for far too long – either hyper-grace without loving correction or painfully and destructively religious.

The enemy is steamrolling over the church (as His Body) and laughing while doing so. Taking a centimeter of land here, a few feet there, over time, until wicked strongholds are formed, until principalities and powers of darkness have erected permanent structures of pure evil. Um, Planned Parenthood. 

Mighty God, shake the church from its slumber. Its passivity is allowing evil to run rampant in this nation and upon the face of the earth. Little by little, the enemy has been taking ground and normalizing all sorts of wickedness and all You’ve heard from our lips is – ‘grace, grace, grace’, ‘that’s not loving’, ‘I don’t want to offend anyone’.

Lord, give us deeply rooted and abiding spiritual revelation that we are vessels that show the way to turn from sin, to bring restoration and healing – this is true love.

Sin brings death. Leaving others in their sin and allowing the enemy to have them for eternity is the most unloving thing imaginable.

Lord God, break our hearts for what breaks Yours. “O Lord, You are our Father;
we are the clay, and You are our Potter; we are all the work of Your hand” (Isaiah 64:8). Mold and shape us into Your image, keep us on the narrow path with You.

Father, wake us. We prophesy in the name of Jesus, “the hour has come for you to wake from sleep” (Romans 13:11), for we “are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober” (1 Thessalonians 5:5-6). Church, “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you” (Isaiah 60:1). God’s people, “Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God. Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you” (Revelation 3:2-3). “For anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, ‘Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you’” (Ephesians 5:14).

We command scales and veils to fall off the church’s eyes, we command all dry bones to come alive, we loose Your resurrection power to the church.

All in Jesus’ mighty name we pray, amen.

Warriors for God, please share so prayers stretch everywhere.
