Today June 6, 2014 is the 70th anniversary of an important day in the WW2 when the soldiers of the Allied Forces invaded Normandy France, which proved to be the "start of the end" of the greatest World War to date. In which the Allied Forces of England, Canada and the US combined to defeat the army of Nazi Germany under Adolph Hitler. Some of you would be too young to remember this war, but I had 2 brothers and several uncles involved in various phases of the war, but not this particular battle. The term D-Day has come to represent certain important days in our lives, for example when Joshua became the leader of the Israelites after Moses died and was challenging the people about what gods they would worship when they entered the land that Almighty God had promised to give them, in (Josh 24:15) he said "But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord". And I expect that everyone reading this article have had their personal D-Day's in their lifetime.


For most of us the day of our birth into this world from our mother's womb would qualify as a D-Day. A day we all celebrate every year! Then there might be days of crisis of one sort or another, perhaps when a loved one dies, or some other day that stands out in your mind. For me personally this day would be Dec 8, 1999, the day I had my first stroke that drastically changed my lifestyle. I'm sure we can all remember such days in our lives that could be called a D-Day for us personally. But I believe that by far the greatest singular D-Day for anyone would have to be the day they choose to follow Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! This is the one decision that determines where we will spend eternity when our life ends on Planet Earth. What could possibly be a more important day than that? And to realize that our Creator leaves that decision up to us personally is almost more than I can wrap my mind around. But He did create us all with a "free will" with which to make choices, when He could have created as "robots".


With that fact in mind, I need to ask you all a serious question, have you made this all important decision to place your faith and trust in what Jesus did for all of us humans on the Cross of Calvary. That is clearly the most important decision you will ever make, that decides whether you will spend eternity with Jesus and His Father with the Holy Spirit in the New Jerusalem that He has prepared for His children, see (Rev 21:1-8)!!

Too Late



This was the title of the ODB devotional for today, April 30, 2014 written by Dave Branon. He had spent some time as a university professor and every year he would warn his freshman students of the need to get all of their class assignments in on time. But invariably there would be some students who were always late getting them in. He would have to tell them "I'm sorry. It's too late, you have failed the class". And of course they would be out the cost of that class, and would have to repeat it just because they were "too late". According to (Matt 7:21-23) some people will stand before Jesus Christ who are not "true disciples" and will hear Him say "Not everyone who calls out to me Lord! Lord will enter the Kingdom of heaven, only those who actually do the will of my father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, Lord! Lord!  We prophesied in your name and performed many miracles in your name. But I will reply I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God's laws". NLT


In Hebrews chapter four we read about the "rest of God" that awaits us in this life, and we never know for sure how long this physical life we enjoy here on earth will last. So it would seem to be a wise move to look into receiving God's gift of "Eternal Life" that will never ever end, before it is "too late". It is one thing to be a freshman in college and be late for some written assignments, and have to repeat a class; but it is definitely entirely a different matter to be late for God's time to accept His gift of eternal life before it is forever "too late". It would seem that not everyone is concerned about this matter, either because they don't know what God tells us in His Word the Bible, or if they do know they either don't believe He is serious, or else they are just plain foolish. I'm not sure because only God knows people's hearts, but we do know that (Heb 9: 27-28) tells us that "And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, so also Christ died once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for Him". NLT God is perfectly honest and holy and always keeps the word of His New Covenant that He made with His "elect" people, who were never able to keep the Old Covenant that He made with the descendants of Abraham. The Old covenant was a "God to Man" covenant but the New Covenant is a "God to God" covenant which is

"Everlasting" and will never be broken, Hallelujah!!

Sincerely submitted.
