I believe the Bible is the Word of God. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.(John 1:1,3) Jesus Christ, the Son of God is the world's only hope. Jesus is God, and God is calling His people to wake up!

The signs of the times Jesus spoke of are upon us and they are shouting loudly to us who have ears to hear.

Jesus Christ is coming back for His true believers. (Acts 1:1-11) Today the body of Christ is sleeping. She is too much like the world with little self-examination and repentance. (Revelation 4:14-21) The Bible states, "Judgment must begin at the house of God. (1 Peter 4:17) The Bible tells us Jesus loves His church and He wants her pure and spotless. (Ephesians 5:25-27) It is time for the church to take a stand and speak up for the truth of God's holy word because our silence speaks acceptance of the evil in the world.

Jesus proclaims in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth and the life; no man comes to the Father, but by Me.”

God designed marriage from the beginning between one man and one woman. (Genesis 1:27-28 & 2:18, 21-24))

What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate. (Matthew 19:6) There are many Scriptures in the Bible stating God's stand on homosexuality, not an isolated few. Space does not allow me more than the following verses.

Romans 1:26-27 states, For this cause God gave them up to degrading passions: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against

nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that penalty of their error which was fitting.

Jesus speaking to the Pharisees in His day said, “You are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knows your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. (Luke 16:15) God said in Leviticus 18:22, “You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. (grossly sinful).

The Bible is the infallible, authoritative , inerrant Word of God.

God will not “wink” at our sin for much longer, and God will not be mocked. (Galatians 6:7) Jesus spoke of the two greatest commandments in Matthew 22:37. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind and you shall love your neighbor as yourself.

God is love. God is also a just and righteous judge. We cannot have one without the other.

I beg us all to be reconciled to God.

Pray, Dear Heavenly Father, I confess that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins. I believe Jesus died on the cross for me, was buried and rose the third day and ascended into heaven. I invite Jesus into my heart and life as my Lord and Savior. Amen.

A day is coming when we will all stand before God and give an account to Him. (2 Corinthians 5:10) There is a literal heaven and hell, and we each make the choice as to where we will spend eternity.

May we as believers be living our lives looking for Jesus to return any minute, seeking holiness, praying and witnessing to the lost, warning people what is to come (Revelation 6-19), and loving His appearing. (Titus 2:11-14 & 2Timothy 4:8) Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5 to take a look at the last days. Are we not living them now?

Jesus warned of false prophets and false teachers in the end times. Jesus exhorted believers not to be deceived.

Isaiah 5:20 warns, “Woe to them that call evil good, and good evil; Woe to them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

The Lord commands us to redeem the time for the days are evil (Ephesians 5:16).

May we be about our Father’s business.

Welcome to the family of God for all those who prayed to receive Jesus today. Rejoice, for your names are written in God's Book of Life.

Time is short. Maranatha!
