Your Fate is in Your Hands

hand

Proverbs 5:22, 23:

His ow n iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins. He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.

We have a choice in the matter of salvation. God doesn’t force our will. If we are overcome by iniquity, it is because we have given into it without constantly fighting against it.

The fate of such actions are clearly revealed in Scripture. Going astray from the Lord and (the second) death (Revelation 2:12) is what’s in store.

We need to submit our lives to Jesus in prayer every day. We need to really fight against sin. We need to be in our Bibles and be fortified with prayer. Otherwise, we will end up lost.

Why God isn’t Answering Your Prayers

prayerPsalm 66:18:

If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.

God will not hear the prayers of someone who is cherishing sin in their heart. We need to be completely honest and sincere with God. If there is any sin in our lives which we have not given over to the Lord, our relationship with God will be compromised.

If we say in our heart, I will give everything to the Lord except my lustful thoughts, or my liquor drinking, or my temper; God will not honor us. God honors those who honor Him. It is only after we make a complete surrender to the Lord that He may bless us with answered prayer.

Now, this doesn’t mean that we have to start living a completely sinless life before God fulfills our prayers. Don’t get me wrong. We could be struggling with a certain sin. We may honestly want to stop lusting or drinking; and we may be praying to God for his mercy and strength over those matters. And He will honor our prayers. What’s important, however, is that we are seeking God in the matter and that we are fighting the battle to overcome it.

Whatever your struggle is, give it over to God. Rest assured that He will aid you as long as you are not holding any of your sinful desires back. And if you are wondering why your prayers aren’t being answered, examine yourself to see if there is any area in your life that you have surrendered to the Lord Jesus Christ.

All the World Will Worship the Lord

PraiseGodPsalm 66:4:

All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.

The psalmist here speaks of a time when all of the earth shall worship God. When will that be? Apparently, that will only be after the second coming of Jesus and the destruction of the wicked. Then will God establish his kingdom of righteousness. Everyone in it will be saved; and they will all worship the Lord together. I look forward to that time, don’t you?

Jesus – The Light & Truth of God

newjerusalemPsalm 43:3:

O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.

David spoke of God’s “light” and “truth” which were to lead him to God’s “holy hill”. What is this light and truth? And what did David mean by holy hill?

The light and truth of God are Jesus and His Word. Notice how this is indicated by the following scriptures:

Light

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” – John 8:12

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” – Psalm 119:105

Truth

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” – John 14:6

“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” – John 17:17

God’s “holy hill” is basically Heaven. Psalm 24:4 talks about ascending to it; and Christians expect to ascend to Heaven at the second coming of Jesus (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; John 14:2-3).

Therefore, it is Jesus and His Word which will lead us to Heaven. If we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior and follow His Word, there will be found a place for us in eternal glory.

Giving Equals Blessings!

PraiseGod

Psalm 41:1, 2:

1. Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.

2. The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.

This passage really resonatges with me, because I can relate to it. I remember when I was finishing my 9 year federal prison term. I was a Christian by now. I was in a holding cell, awaiting deportation to Poland. There was a Mexican national with me, awaiting deportation to Mexico.

I had about $270 in my pocket. The Mexican guy mentioned that he had no money for the bus to get from the location of his deportation to his home, which cost $15. I happily gave him the money for his bus ticket.

There are blessings in giving; and I knew that I would need all the divine help that I could get in days ahead. I was getting deported to a country that I knew nearly nothing about. I was born there, but left with my family when I was three years old. However, I’m happy to say that God didn’t let me down.

My deportation took place over two years. Currently, I am the owner of a flat worth over $50,000 and I have a steady income. God is good.

Becoming a Wintess for God

bible-study-banner

Psalm 40:1-3

“1. I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

2. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

3. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.”

This scripture outlines how someone becomes a witeness for the Lord. First, they pray for deliverance and God saves them. Then they declare the saving grace of God to others, which leads them to salvation.

This really should be the experience of every Christian. If we appreciate the salvation of God, then we won’t be ashamed to tell others about it. However, if we’re not witnessing for the Lord, we may need to re-evaluate our relationship with Him.

Sinning is Not Easy

prayerPsalm 38:1-3:

1. O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

2. For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.

3. There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.

Sinning is not easy because you must strive with the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. This is what King David was experiencing above. His conscience was burdened.

Having a burdened and guilty conscience is, in essence, the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. This is actually a good thing, believe it or not; because it is designed to get us to recognize our wrongs and repent from them. This way, God can forgive us and we may be restored in our relationship with Him.

What’s not good is if we resist our guilty conscience. Then the force of it dissipates until we no longer feel guilty of sinning. This is what it means to blaspheme the Holy Spirit. This is the unpardonable sin; because God can’t forgive you for what you don’t repent from and confess to Him.

Therefore, the next time you suffer from a guilty conscience, make sure to make amends with God and right your wrongs as soon as possible. Procrastination is a tool of the devil that can cost you your salvation.

God is More Powerful than the Illuminati!

illuminati

Ps. 33:10

“The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.”

I’ve been hearing a lot about secret societies like the Jesuits, Illuminati, Freemasons, etc.; and their plans of world domination and the annihilation of everyone that opposes them.

I rememmber even watching a video about about he RFID chip, and how it was suposed to be used to impliment this plan. The problem with that is, the RFID chip was supposed to be put into use in 2008; and it is now 2013…

I’m not doubting the existence of these groups or their plans of domination or destruction. However, I think it is important to keep in mind that nothing happens without God’s permission. God is more powerful than the Vatican or the Illuminati; and if He doesn’t want their plans to come to fruition, there is nothing they can do about it.

Power in the Word of God

bible61

Ps. 29:3-11

“3. The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the Lord is upon many waters.

4. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

5. The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars; yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.

6. He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.

7. The voice of the Lord divideth the flames of fire.

8. The voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness; the Lord shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.

9. The voice of the Lord maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.

10. The Lord sitteth upon the flood; yea, the Lord sitteth King for ever.

11. The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.”

I find it significant that this Psalm focuses so much on the voice of the Lord and then associates it with God’s ability to strengthen and bless His people. Why is that? Because God’s voice is His Word. And His Word promises strength and blessings upon His people. In other words, there is power in the word of God!

God Comes Through When it Really Matters

Creation-GodPs. 27:10 – “When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.” This scripture is interesting, because the word “then” is consequential. In other words, God comes through us when we all of our other options are exhausted. When we really need Him. When we are at the end of our rope.
