Snowflakes are beautiful, uniquely crafted ice crystals, and they tell us no two are exactly alike. In a typical snowstorm here in Canada probably consists of multiplied billions that fall from the sky in a few hours. They can transform a bare bleak Dec. forest into a "Christmas Greeting Scene" within a few hours by covering trees and bushes, because they "stick together". Snow can be made into "snow balls" and "snowmen", or cover hills to accommodate sliding or skiing, or create drifts that can shut down whole cities and airports for days. They are truly amazing little things, and also are similar to individual little human individuals when they "stick together", like their Creator intended for them to do. We were never intended to live in "isolation" but to work together to be a great force for God to promote His Kingdom being established here on our planet. The Apostle Paul declares we are to be "one body with many parts", read (1 Cor 12:12-31) for details of how we as "followers of Jesus" should "stick together". 

The OT prophet Isaiah stated in (Is 53:6) "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, everyone to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all". This statement from scripture tells it like it is, there are no exceptions, and the Apostle Paul expands on this truth (Rom 3: 9-31). So every human who was born as a descendant of our first parents Adam and Eve, who introduced the sin of Lucifer/Satan into our world by listening to his lies and disobeying the one commandment their Creator gave them sinned. This caused our world that was created "perfect" by our Creator, to become "fallen". Then the plan of God was put into action, by allowing the Son Jesus to become "Agape Incarnate" as the "Eternal Seed" to be placed in the womb of a Jewish virgin named Mary of Nazareth to produce a human body for Jesus. Now when ever anyone responds to the promptings of the Holy Spirit to "receive" Jesus Christ the "Last Adam" as their Lord and Savior, they are "born again" by the Spirit of God (John 3:1-8), and Father adopt them into His Eternal family. At this time they become a member of the Church that Jesus has been building here on earth for some 2000 years. This "Biblical Church" goes under the title of the "Body of Christ" which is like tiny snowflakes that are meant to "stick together" to accomplish the task of extending the Kingdom of God on our planet. This task is referred to as "The Gospel of The Kingdom", and all God's children have an active part to play and it demands that we work together!!

What About Hell


 We don't hear much about hell lately, and a lot of people believe that a "God of Love" would never send a person to hell, even if there is such a place. The Bible clearly speaks about a place called hell, and Jesus mentioned it more times in the gospel accounts that he does heaven. So we can be sure hell is a "real place" that people will go to if they refuse to accept the truth about what Jesus accomplished on the Cross of Calvary, when He shed His precious blood as the "Lamb of God". Read your Bible which is the Word of God, and every word it contains is true from cover to cover. When I read scriptures like (2 Thess 1:7-9) from the Apostle Paul who was a faithful servant of Jesus, I know he must be talking about the same place of "eternal destruction, forever separated from the Lord" that Jesus mentioned. Check (Luke 12:4-5) for example to see the other side of our loving Father, who loves us all but because He is a righteous judge of those who truly fear Him, He must have a place for those wicked persons who don't fear and obey Him. Otherwise how could He be the perfectly righteous Ruler that we know Him to be?

Recently I was reading #74 from Bob Mumford's book Mysterious Seed, that he called "Difficulty of Being a Fallen King". He was dealing with the "fall" of out first parents Adam and Eve who were created to be the king and queen of creation,  under God. Bob started by quoting (Gen 3:20-24) about their fall into sin following the serpent's lies, and disobeying the single commandment their Creator had placed on them. Then I had occasion to read (Rev 21:1-7) which tells of the description by John of the "New Jerusalem" coming down from heaven dressed like a bride. Then in verse 8 he continues with "But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death".

If we don't believe in a place for these kinds of people to spend eternity, where do we expect a loving God to send them when they die? They certainly would not fit comfortably into John's description of heaven unless they were born again and adopted by Father into His family and become citizens of heaven, would they? How else could a loving God respond to these wicked people who refuse to believe in and accept Jesus Christ as their one and only Lord and Savior?

Sincerely submitted.

A Biblical Overcomer


In (Rev 21:1-7) we read a very encouraging message to followers of Jesus in the present world. Then in (1 John 4:4, 5:4; Rev 2:7, 11, 17, 26; 3:5, 12, 21), all these verses refer to the victory to be had by those who are called to overcome obstacles in this life. So it would appear that every person who has believed in what Jesus has accomplished for us on the Cross of Calvary, and have accepted Him as Lord and Savior is now an adopted child of our Father God, and will have a wonderful life in the future, "IF" they are an "overcomer". Does this sound like it depends on a life of religious works, trying by your good works to earn your way to heaven? No definitely not! Salvation is a gift of God and not by works (Eph 2: 8-9) clearly states that, so these works accredited to those who overcome must be those that are associated with verse 10. Paul here clearly states "For we are God's Masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.

Being an overcomer in our resurrected life with Jesus has nothing to do with any type of good works we might try to do to earn God's approval, these are simply "dead works" (Heb 6:1) NKJV, and have nothing to do with salvation. Many church attendees who have little or no understanding of Bible truth often are under the illusion that their religious deeds are being laid up in heaven somewhere to their account, something like monthly deposits in a bank account gradually accumulate to increase your estate. There is absolutely no truth to that false information, that many sincere people are depending on for their life in heaven in their "mansion" that Jesus has gone to prepare for them. It never ceases to amaze me how much false information some people are depending on for their existence in eternity. God has made the good news of the gospel so simple in the Bible, that even a child can understand it if the [Agape] of their Creator is explained to them. Here is a good quote from the ODB devotional today by Randy Kilgore, "When the trials of today seem more daunting than your strength, let the Lord show you the end of the story when you will be in His presence forever". He finished with the following words from an old hymn. "Stand up, stand up for Jesus, the strife will not be long; this day the noise of battle—the next the victor's song. To him that overcometh a crown of life shall be; he with the king of glory shall reign eternally". Randy ended with this line "For hope today, remember the end of the story-eternity with God"

Sincerely submitted.

One of my favorite passages of scripture is found in the gospel of John chapters 13-17, starting with Jesus washing the feet of His 12 disciples and ending with the rather lengthy pray of Jesus to His Father. Here is where we see clearly as Jesus realizes His time on earth in His physical body is approaching the end; He tries to prepare his disciples for the soon coming events that must happen in order to fulfill the "cosmic plan" that was made in "eternity past" before creation. This plan included the words of God recorded by Moses "Then God said let us make human beings in our image, to be like us" (Gen 1:26) NLT. This plan included the Son Jesus coming down to earth as "Agape Incarnate" to redeem the result of the "fall of Adam" into sin. This required the death of a perfect "sinless man" like the First Adam was when he was created, before God's enemy lied to Adam and his wife Eve, and they believed his lies and disobeyed the only command of their Creator, about not eating the "forbidden fruit" of the tree of good and evil. See particularly (John 16:7-11) where Jesus told them what this "Helper", the Holy Spirit would do when He came to replace Jesus. 

Jesus clearly explained to His disciples how their lives would be different after He returned to be honored by Father after He completed His assignment that He was sent to earth for. After He arose from the tomb on the third day, He remained for 40 days before ascending to heaven spending time with the disciples, and telling them to stay in Jerusalem "until" they received the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4-11), and as this scene was recorded by Luke to explain what was happening on earth, King David had already given us the scene in heaven. See (Psalm 110:1) for a description of His arrival in heaven. Because God has always existed in eternity He knows the past, present, and future events as happening "now" because of "perfect foreknowledge". Once we understand this supernatural ability of God, it helps to explain how certain passages of scripture start to make sense. That is why we need a "spiritual mind" as Paul explains in (1 Cor 2:9-16), and when we are born again spiritually and Father adopts us into His family and gives us the gift of His Holy Spirit as a seal of this transaction, He abides with us permanently from that moment on. We are then a citizen of heaven having received "eternal life" and will be assured of spending eternity in the New Jerusalem that John saw coming down from heaven (Rev 21:1-7)!!

Sincerely submitted.
