Being Born Again to Reign (2)
Jesus so loved you
And He laid down His life for you
Not willing that you die in your sin
Unless you accept this truth
And turn to Him for salvation
Receiving Him as Lord and Saviour
You will have yourself to blame that day.
Friend, that Day is fast approaching, in fact it is at the Door. I have told and others have too. What are you waiting for? Summer has passed, winter is coming and you are still not saved?
Do not play fast and lose. Do not dither, delay, or be indifferent and think it’ll be alright on that day. But you say “I am a good person. I have not killed anyone.” Salvation is by grace, not of works lest anyone should boast
(Eph.2:8-9). If you can save yourself by your morality then Jesus died in vain.
You may say, “I am too bad to be saved.” Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall as white as snow. Though they be red as crimson they shall be as wool (Isa 1:18). God is not inputting your sins against you, but you have to call upon Him to be saved (2Cor5:19, Rom10:13). And Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father except through Him (John14:6). Life is in the Son, not in religion; it’s in a relationship and fellowship with God. Religion is man’s attempt to save himself. Morality is self-righteousness. That is unacceptable to God (Rom 3:23, Rom 6:23).
This is the record, the testimony, the Real Deal: that God had given us eternal life and this life is in His Son. Whoever has the Son has life and whoever does not have the Son does not have life (1John5:11-12). In Him was life which lighted the son of men. He was the light that shined in the darkness and the darkness and the darkness could not overcome it (John1:4-5). Today, if He is knocking on the door of heart. Will you let Him in? Is there room in your “inn”? Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your heart. This is the Day of Salvation. This is the acceptable time (2Cor.6:2). Stop postponing the day. Tomorrow is not promised anyone. Tomorrow may be too late (James 4:13-14).
Are you ready?
Now pray this prayer after me:
I have heard the Good News of Salvation through Your Son, Jesus Christ and today. I come as I am.
I accept that Jesus died for me and I cannot saved myself. I admit that on the third day You raised Him up to give life to all who call upon You.
Today, I call upon you. Accept me as Your own. I invite Jesus to take His rightful place as my Lord and Saviour.
Thank You, O God that I am born again, the old has gone and the New has come. I am a New Creation! (Rom 10:9-10, 2Cor5:17)
Now if you said that prayer from your heart, meaningfully and sincerely, you are saved. God now inputs His righteousness to you. You are accepted in the Beloved. You are now a citizen of heaven. The angels are partying because of your wise decision. (Eph1:6, Phil. 3:20, 1Cor1:30)
Please let me know you have taken this bold step of faith so that I can help you grow in grace to live a glorious, vibrant and victorious Christian life.
God bless you richly.
In the Day of Noah, Universal was the Doom
But God always has Love-Room
For those who heed the clarion call;
Those who for Him make room
Regardless of their shortfall.
Have You Made Room?
The call is to all and sundry
No single exception
Those bold and those jittery
Are you of the election?
All people woman-born
But Jesus made room
For us to be reborn.
Have you been reborn?
All who believe will be received.
In the Day of Reckoning
No rank, position or possession,
No character or profession,
No boasting or sneering,
No piety or conniving,
Or façade of godliness
Will saved or be excused.
Universal will be the doom.
Unless you made a reservation in the Love-Room.
Jesus has the key to the Love- Room
Be wise. Be not swallowed in the swoon.
Lost soul tremble at your apathy.
Be not simple. Stop the party.
Come to yourself like the like the prodigal;
Examine yourself like Nicodemus, like Cornelius
Come and confess; Come like the lost.
If you are in the cold or if you are lukewarm
Surrender, kneel at the cross
Let the Saviour in and have a New Birth.
If your first love has gone, come let us reason.
There is every reason to leave the darkness
Sadness, madness, waywardness and filthiness
Debunk the carelessness
Put to flight the foolery.
Come in a hurry. Don’t look back like Lot’s wife.
The day is far spent
Night is on the advent.
And when you’ve made your peace,
Tied the knot with the Prince of Peace
O what a joy, what merriment in heaven!
Thou shall have bliss, safe in the Ark
Thou shalt have warmth, safe in the Ark
No principality can touch, safe in the Ark
No foe or power can touch, safe in the Ark!
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away: so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”John3:3
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’ Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, ‘The Lord is my refuge,’ and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. ‘Because he loves me,’ says the Lord, ‘I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honour him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.’ (Psalm 91:1-16 NIVUK)
Inspiration comes through challenges and in unusual circumstances:
Suddenly you have a “lightbulb moment”
I entered a Photo Inspiration Challenge about a year ago with this picture below.
This was my inspiration: Jonah spat out of the mouth of the fish and washed ashore.
He had disobeyed God when told to go and preach at Nineveh. He boarded a ship to Tarshish and all hell broke loose on the ship. He knew he was the cause and asked to be thrown into the sea to save the lives of those on the ship. They did and there was a great calm.
Jonah was swallowed by a big fish and there he repented and worshipped God, who had mercy on him and commanded the fish to spit him out. He was then washed ashore as we can see in the picture. Read Jonah Ch1 and 2 for the full gist.
What would your inspiration be?
Go After God.
Live in His Word.
Love His presence,
Cherish His Voice.
Make Him your choice.
Come to Him daily.
Yield to Him truly.
Follow as He leads
To pastures, green field.
Lie down and feed
Until you’re filled.
Forage not in the mud.
Hold tight to His Word;
Let it light your path
And impart to you, strength.
5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.
7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deut, 6:5-8
4 One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.
20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. Prov4:20-23
