Repent sins now, before the last call

One thing is certain. We’re all going to die. Every day that we exist is another day closer to our death. Yes, we have a short time on the planet. 75-80 years is our life expectancy. Some people, if they are fortunate, live to be 100. But then what? Do we just cease to exist, or is there really life after life?

Most of us go through life unconcerned about God until we get close to death. Then all of a sudden an afterlife is pretty important. If there is an afterlife, and I believe there is, will we get to go to Heaven or will we be lost? Specifically, we need to ask Jesus Christ to forgive our sins and ask him to come into our heart.

In the book of John, 14:6, it states by Jesus “I am the truth, I am the way, and I am the life and no man comes to the Father but by Me.” This scripture makes it pretty clear that you cannot go to Heaven unless you believe in Jesus.

Now is the time to repent of our sins. When comes the last call we want to be ready. Most people become ill before they die, but many die suddenly, in wars, in car accidents, heart attacks and other quick deaths. That is why we don’t want to wait. I don’t believe we can ask for forgiveness after we die.

Like the poet Shakespeare wrote, “To be or not to be; that is the question.” It’s up to us folks. Now is the time to ask Jesus to come into our lives.

Dissatisfaction and anger with the federal government is nothing new, but now even Almighty God is having a tough time getting support from the public.

A recently released survey (PDF) by Public Policy Polling (PPP) found that only 52 percent of American voters approve of God’s performance, while nine percent disapprove and 40 percent are just not sure.

Among “very liberal” respondents, 19 percent disapproved. Only four percent of “very conservative” voters had a problem with the deity.

At 71 percent, God got His highest marks for creating the universe. His handling of animals was approved by 56 percent, and 50 percent even approved of His handling of natural disasters.

The same polling firm recently found that 44 percent of Republicans thought President Barack Obama would Read more…

House to vote on ‘In God We Trust’ resolution

The US House of Representatives will have a chance to vote on a resolution to affirm the phrase “In God We Trust” as the nation’s official motto after it was approved by the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Congressman J. Randy Forbes (R-VA), the founder and chairman of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, sponsored the legislation. It would encourage the public display of the motto in all public buildings, public schools and government institutions.

He said he introduced the bill in January because he was troubled by a pattern of omitting God from the nation’s heritage.

“There is a small minority who believes America does not have the right to trust in God, who believes the United States should not affirm trust in God, and who actively seek to remove any recognition of that trust,” Forbes said.

The phrase “In God We Trust” was made the official U.S. motto in 1956, one year after the phrase “under God” was incorporated into the Read more…

A Time of Many Dangers

“My People, you are coming into a time of many dangers. Dangers will lurk all around you and many of them will be unseen to the human eye. For this reason I have been calling many of you to come into a place of more intimacy with Me. I desire to shield you under the protection of My mighty wings but many of you have been too busy for Me.”

“Later, Lord, you keep saying. What you do not know is that for many of you, later will never come for calamity shall strike and you will be unprepared, so busy are you with the things of the world.”

“I speak this warning to you now – If you do not make time for Me now, I will not be able to protect you from what is coming. You are worried about many things, but I desire you to cast your cares on Me – let Me carry your burdens, My Child. You need only be mindful of spending time with Me, of seeking My Face, and all the other things you need will fall into place.”
