"GOD'S PLEA FOR YOUR ATTENTION"

 Good Afternoon to ALL!

I know it has been a while since I posted, but I pray that I didn't lose the interest of many of my precious readers.  It has been a conflicting time for me as I am trying to the best of my ability to keep the internet usage cost to a minimum to please my hubby, but more and more I am feeling convicted in my spirit that I really need to start blogging and spreading my wonderful Heavenly Father's Word once again.  

The explanation of the pictures are as follows:  The top right, is the Fiery Dove.  It is a reminder to keep the Holy Ghost Fire within you.  Don't become complacent and let the fire or the love for God burn low.  

The middle picture is a reminder that we NEED to read God's Word so we Know what He expects from us.  This is no time for ignorance.  As you will see later in my post, ignorance is no longer an excuse.  

The bottom picture is a reminder to us that if God felt that Baptism was important enough to have Jesus baptised, then it must definitely be important for us to do the same.  Remember, Jesus is the same today, yesterday and forever.  His mind NEVER changes.

The time of His return is drawing closer and closer, and I feel that I am not doing my duty as a Christian  (a FOLLOWER IN THE WAYS OF CHRIST) if I do not do my part and witness to as many people as possible.  

There are so many people out there who have never heard of Jesus, let alone know His truth.  HE is the way, the truth and the life.  Without Jesus, NO ONE can be saved.  

Another myth is that the HOLY SPIRIT is not needed for salvation, that it is just an  extra bonus.  The Holy Spirit is a VERY NECESSARY component of our Salvation.  Without it we cannot be saved either.  Acts 2:38 tells us straight out that the way to Salvation is to REPENT, BE BAPTISED EVERYONE OF YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS AND YE SHALL RECEIVE THE HOLY GHOST.

The Holy Ghost is more than just a feeling we get, or goosebumps.  He is the ACTUAL Spirit of Christ or God Himself. Being filled with the Holy Spirit is the Actual Indwelling of Jesus' spirit within us.  He is there to GUIDE US, and nudge us toward the right path.  He is there to teach us HOW to live for God.  Without His guidance we would be so confused it would be easy to take the wrong path and be lost.  

If we will LISTEN and abide by the Holy Spirit's nudges, we can stay on the path to righteousness and to God.  

A lot of people believe that if you "say",  "I believe that Jesus Christ is my Savior" that that is all there is to it and they can go their merry way and live the way they want to, and not change a thing.  I am here to tell you
NAY!  That is not the case.  When you say those words, you have to back them up with your life.  You have to REPENT and turn your life away from the old ways you were doing things.  I have always heard the definition of insanity is doing the same old things the same old ways and expecting different results.  Needless to say that is not truly insanity, but it is definitely the wrong concept.  

If a person wants to be saved and enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, he must understand two things.  One NO SIN WILL ENTER HEAVEN.  If we don't change our lifestyles and continue to sin, disobey God's Word ( which means it is important to read His Word so that we will know when we are going against His Will), or even just be indifferent, we will NOT enter into eternity with God.

 According to the Message Bible, Acts 17:30, it says:  “God overlooks it as long as you don’t know any better—but that time is past. The unknown is now known, and he’s calling for a radical life-change. He has set a day when the entire human race will be judged and everything set right. And he has already appointed the judge, confirming him before everyone by raising him from the dead.”   In the KJV, it says He winked at sin. 

This means there is NO EXCUSES.  

Again, I tell you, if anyone tries to tell you the Holy Spirit is just a bonus, PLEASE don't listen to them.  Listen to your heart.  If anyone tells you that baptism is not necessary, PLEASE don't listen to them get baptized in JESUS NAME.  The ONLY NAME under heaven by which we can be saved.  If God saw that it was necessary to baptize Jesus, what makes us so special that we don't need it?  Don't be deceived.

This is not meant to be a "DOOM AND GLOOM" post, but it is my personal quest to get this word out and for as many people as possible to be saved and join me in heaven when our time comes.  

Good Afternoon and May God Bless!

Hi PJ,

Jesus himself said that if being evil, we know how to give good gifts to our children, how much more will our Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask? Luke 11:13.
The fact that the Holy Spirit is available simply by the asking is an excellent example of the grace of God.
It's good to have you back.

Hey PJ,

Good to hear from you again. Thanks for the uplifting posting about the Holy Spirit. How wonderful it is to know that we have the Spirit within us to accompany, strengthen and enable us during our walk on this earth. Lord bless you my friend.

PJ,

Thanks for your kind words. I am so thankful that the Lord is using the series to be a blessing to you.

Sounds like the book you are trying to read is like several I have read in times past. Yep, I know that when a book doesn't present things clearly it is a very difficult task to get thorugh it.

I've had books that I had to read for Bible college that was similar and it drove me nuts being forced to read through them. My prayers are with You!.

Take care and Lord bless you. So good to hear from you. I hope all is going well and you are blessed.

Rob
