God was, is and always will be the King of Kings, the lord of Lords and the great all mighty God.
God loves us and want us to be happy. He has proven that by saving us from ourselves and delivering us from sin to salvation, but do we love him enough to want to be with him and live the lifestyle that will bless us?
I understand that at times you feel like God is not there for you but always remember that he promises to always be with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you so don’t forget that with him you are never alone.
You will have all kinds of drama and problems in your life but don’t let anything or anybody stop you from giving God praise.
God has given us a gift called the “Holy Spirit” and he will spiritually help us change who we are into who we were truely meant to be and if we use this gift to keep His commanments this gift will make us undefeatable.
Is there really a God?
Some of you are probably wondering if there really is a God. Have you ever looked around and wondered where all the trees, seas, mountians and animals came from? There is only one true reason why we and everything else exist at all and thats all because of God. Not only do they all exist but they all have connections.
-No plant or creature on this earth would survive without water.
-The zebra’s, buffalos and gazelles all eat different types of grass so that every herd had enough to eat. More food for the prey means more food for the preditors such as the lions, leopards, and cheetahs.
– The crocodiles even have their fair share of food when the herd has to cross the river to get to the other side.
-Why are the flies here? To get rid of the waist and the dead animals. There are insects that eats flies to keep them from taking over.
-How do the plants and trees get water? from the oceans and rivers turns into water vapors which form into clouds and moves the clouds over to the land and rain is giving to the plants and trees. There are also underground water sources.
-The earth itself rotates giving light in the day and gives us the beautiful moon and stars as night lights.
So to answer the question is there a God? The answer is “yes” there is a God. Everything you need to know is in the book of Genisis found in the Bible. These animals and plants didn’t just create themselves. There had to of been a God to make the mountains and the oceans as beautiful as they are. There had to be a God to create us.
What about God?
Let me tell you a little something about God. He created us to be his children. Most of us know the story about Adam and Eve. Since the day Adam and Eve were created they already had what we are all working for. They already had eternal life, eternal youth and they were already apart of God, and God was apart of both Adam and Eve. Now Satan was an angel who was once named Lucifer. He was the most beautiful angel in heaven and was the highest of all angels. But he wanted more. He wanted to be worshiped as God and tried to take over heaven. And God just wasn’t having it. So He kicked Lucifer and his followes out of heaven and cursed them and changed Lucifer’s name to Satan. Now of course Satan wasn’t to happy about that and he knows how much God loves His greatest creation, which is us. So he trys in every way to distory us and bring us down with him thats why he, through a serpent, got Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which God had told them not to eat. God made it pretty clear that if they eat the forbidden fruit they would die and thats pretty much all they needed to know. (Genesis 2:17). When they both ate the forbidden fruit they have ruined the balance of nature and contaminated the human race. God had a spritual connection with his children that died when they ate the forbidden fruit and mankind would now under the the ownership of Satan who gloried in their distruction. The first thing that died was their supernatural(spiritual) relationship with God. 2nd went their mind they became selfish and defensive, and destructive. Last went their physical bodies. That’s why we can’t help but sin. Our ancestors Adam and Eve unknowing gambled with thier eternal, mental, emothional and physical well-being not to mention the unbalancing nature for the change to “be like God” under the advice of Satan . They go just the opposite of what they bargined for. Therefore we are not born with nature of God our creator but the nature of Satan our inslaver. Thankfully God had a plan to make things right and to get his children back, so he chose certian people who believed him and were obedient such as Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Mosses, David, and the Prophets. These were a few of the chosen ones to keep the blood line right so that Jesus could enter into the world. When Jesus came and preached to everyone on what people should and shouldn’t do in the eyes of the God and to repent so that there sins can be forgiven, the Jews saw him as a threat. After performing miracles, casting demons out of people and even bringing Lazarus back to life the Jews still wanted to get rid of them. They didn’t even realize that Jesus was already prophesied in Isaiah 9: 6-7. John the baptist also prophesied to everyone about Jesus in Mathew 3:11, but the Jews were to jealous to see the truth and when Jesus said to the Jews himself that he was the son of God, they didn’t believe a word he said and that’s why he died on that cross. The Jews thought he was an imposter. As sad as this story is, it was all according to God’s plan. If Jesus have not died for us then we couldn’t live. It was his death that gave us life. Our sins would have eaten us up alive if God haden’t sent Jesus to come and recuse us. Can’t you see how much God loves us? No one on this earth can love us more then God does.
The three kings
How do we get saved?
You must first admit to God you have sins and repent (be willing to stop living life your way and begin doing what Jesus says). Jesus and John the baptist has been preaching to everyone that they should repent. Get baptist in the name of Jesus and get filled with the Holy Ghost. Peter, and the rest of the Apostles, has also preached to everyone to repent as well when they had the holy spirit withn them. For it is written in Acts 2:38 “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

Who is Jesus?
Jesus is the son of God and our brother in heaven. He is the way, the truth and the life. When he came into this world he had a mission and his mission was to show us the way to salvation, to tell us the truth about our sin problems and the end result of it hoping we would repent and follow God’s plan to give us life. He is our savor and the prince of peace. He is our sheperd and able to lead us through this life into the promises that God has for those who loves him and keeps his commandments. Jesus is equipt by God our creator, with everthing needed keep us safe from the judgement of God against sin. Where sin is found there be everlasting destruction. We must be found under the protection of the blood of Jesus to be saved.

How do we know were saved?
It is written in Mark 16 16-18 “He who believes and is baptized will be saved but he who does not believe will be condemned, and these signs will follow those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues, they will take up serpents and if they drink anything deadly it will by no means hurt them. They will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.” These are the proof of your salvation.
This is is talking about people who are in a quality relationship with Jesus. Those who are practice their faith in the plan of God.
Who said we had to speak in tongues to be saved?
Understand this everyone, we do need to be able to speak in tongues. Its the only way we know for sure that the Holy Spirit is there within our hearts. If we want to change we need the Holy Ghost and to know we have it is by speaking in tongues. You see, God knew that the churches would have there differences and he knew that they would take this important message out. The Holy Spirit is our heart to heart link with our Father, he is our seal given by God, our power to do all God wants comes from the Holy Ghost who is our life line. This proof is also our perfect pray language which will edify us. If Satan can convince us that we don’t need the Holy Ghost or that we have it when we don’t we are in major trouble. That’s why God gave us the ablity to speak in another language because we need to know that we know. So everyone that is saved should be able to speak in tongues with no problem. Now I understand that some of you have been raised in churches that don’t believe in speaking in tongues to be saved, but the Bible itself tells us that speaking in tongues is the 1st proof that we are spirit-filled and everything in the bible is 100% true. Its the first proof that we have of God being with us and in us. So I beg of you, do not listen to those who say to you, you don’t need to speak in tongues because its not true. And for those who use the books of Corinthians 13 as in excuse to say you don’t need to speak in tongues, I advice you to read them again. If you do you will find that when tongues is mentioned it is talking about in a group setting so as to not cause unsaved people to be confused, if there is no interpreter and if there is one that the speaking in tongues should be kept at a maximum of 3 people with interretaion when in an asssembly otherwise it should be used in private pray. Also in the Corthinans 14 it is written that tongues with cease but won’t be until after the rapture. Read Mark, Mathew and Acts which talks about speaking in new languages then see if you still think you don’t need to speak in tongues. There are scriptures all over the bible that talks about tongue speaking. Mark 16:16-18 tells you about how you know your saved and Act 19:1-6 is proof that its true.
Is there any other way we can be saved?
No there is no other way on this side of the rapture. You can’t come to church and repeat what the preacher saids and expect to be saved. You can’t get baptized in water but not get spirit filled and expect to get saved. I know we all wish it was that easy but it just doesn’t work that way. God made it very simple but man complicates it. You have to want him in your heart and soul. If people start forcing you to get saved or you are afraid of going to hell and that’s why you want to get saved then that’s not going to work either. God wants you to respectfully love him and he certainly isn’t going to force anyone to love him. He wants you to come to him on your own free will. He wants us to come to him because we love him and we want to do right in his eyes with his help. We all have our moments where we think we can handle our problems and situations. But lets face it. We’ll all need him.

Can I get saved and still do what I do?
That depends on what you do. If you say you love god and want to be with him but you don’t want to stop selling drugs, or you don’t want to stop stripping or prostituting then you must choose what you think is more important to you. I understand that everyone needs money to survive and pay bills, gas and food, but there are other ways you can earn money without having to put yourself in a situation that could get you in serious trouble. If you want to be with the Lord then you shouldn’t want to do things the wrong way. It makes no since for you go to church on Sundays praising the Lord and then sell drugs the next day. You have to really think about whats more important to you. There is no middle ground and you can’t serve to masters. God wants to help you spiritually and wants to get you on the right track to do the right thing. Satan however doesn’t want you to focus on God he would much rather you be distracted in the physical world with money, hate, sex, fame, and stuff that won’t even last forever like shoes, phones, jewelry etc. Either way neither God nor Satan can make you choose so its for you to decide for youself on what is on the top of your pyramid and whats more important to you.

What if i’m to scared to admit the truth?
Do not be afraid for God loves you and he knows that you have your own problems and issues. He knows what you have done in the past, what your doing now and what you plan to do in the future but understand this, it’s for those exact reasons why Jesus has died for us and its those exact reasons why he has given us the Holy Spirit. You see everyone it doesn’t matter if your a thief, a lier, a murderer or a homosexual, your sins has already been forgiven. Now all god wants you to do in return is to admit your mistakes and admit that you need his help to change. You need the gift of the Holy Spirit in order to change. See both God and Jesus fought for us and the Holy Spirit which gives us access to everything we need to win our part of the fight. So that we can be with our creator as his children and be given all that he has for us in the Kindom of Heaven. So not only did Jesus died for our sins but also to give us the power to be rightous before God and sin no more and be transform into the true princes and princesses God has created us to be.

Who am I?
You were ment to be more then what you are. You were ment to be the sons and daughters of God. Princes and princesses of the Kingdom of Heaven and His servents here on earth. If you choose to take your God given place you would repent and be baptized in Jesus name and spirit filled. Then you will develop a relationship with Jesus using your Holy Ghost and prayer lanugage. You will then be alive in your spirit and learn how to fight all temptations and battles using the Holy Ghost until the Lord calls you and change your body giving you eternal life. Once you are saved you have returned to your God given place as a child of God and will become princes and princesses again once more. It won’t matter if you have passed away or when the rapture happens, you will be safe either way and you will forever be with the Lord. It is written in John 3:16 “For God so love the world he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” We were created to be apart of God and God apart of us and because He loves us so much he has made us a way for us to come home thru Jesus and the Holy Ghost. The question is this, do we want to go home?
Being a Christian is not easy and its not going to be easy. When you are a Christian you are now a man and women of God, His people on earth and his children in heaven, prince and princesses of the Kingdom of God. We are not perfect and yes we will make mistakes but our goal is to be as perfect as we can and try to make less and less mistakes as possible. So the first thing we do is begin the process of converting our minds by praying, fasting, praising God, meditating and practice tongue speaking. These things will help us to trust God and Jesus who will lead and guide us by the Holy Spirit so that we will begin treating others the way we like to be treated and love the Lord properly. You always want to do something that pleases the Lord and spend some time with him everyday. The more you do this the stronger you will become. This road we are on is the right road and even though there are going to be storms that we have to go thru we can make it thru together as a team. So we will have to go thru some messes but always remember my brothers and sisters that these storms that we will be going thru will all be worth it. And soon we will be going home and our reward will be unimaginable. By feeding our spirit we will begin to have the 9 fruits of the spirit of God: Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Love your neighbor as you love yourself. Do not wish harm on your enemies, instead pray for them. It saids in Luke 6:31 “Just as you wanted men to do to you, you also do to them.” I understand that loving your enemies is hard and its easier to wish they would go jump off a bridge then to wish them well, but they are lost. They don’t see what you see so except those who hate you treat you wrong. If they do try to disrespect you try not to feed on that because if you do then there will be drama and everybody loses. There’s no reason for us to sink down to their level and stress ourselves out, so instead ignore their childish ways and pray for them. Wish them nothing but joy and happiness. It will be hard at first but once you get use to it, it will be second nature.
It is written in Nehemiah 8:10 “The joy of the lord is your strength.” In other words be happy, be joyful because its good for the mind, body and spirit. There’s no reason for us to be depressed and there is alot to be joyful about. You have repented, you are saved, you now have eternal life and if you do as the Lord wants you to do you will also be rewarded a hundred times over. Try listening to some gospels songs to lift your spirits. I mean, Jesus has died for us to be reborn so please don’t let anything or anybody keep you from being happy and joyful.
Always try to have peace within yourself and with others. Ask Jesus what the Father wants you to do. You will get an answer. Don’t feed on someones mess. If someone or something is bothering you then pray to your Heavenly Father about it and ask for his help. If you feel that its the person who can’t seem to leave you alone or treats you with no respect them pray for them. If you think that its yourself and you know that your acting up and you feel that you can’t help yourself then you should also pray for youself. No matter what we want to always keep the peace like it saids in Pslams 34:14 “Depart from evil and do good, seek peace and pursue it”. There’s always going to be somebody who wants to start drama but we must try to stay away from that.
There will be times where you will not always get what you want when you want it. So this exercise is going to teach you about being patient. When it comes to things that you desire for example a car, if you don’t have a car then the best thing to do is to pray to God about getting one then begin to work towards your goal in a God ordained way. Or if your looking for the right person one be with, God will lead you to the right man or women when its time and when he knows your ready. We all have to be patient in wait for our Father to take us all home. Until then its best to be greatful for what you have and be patient for what you want. Hang in there my brothers and sisters. The Lords got us, we just have to have to be patient and wait for him.
Always try to be nice and kind to one another. Help those who need help and think about others before yourself. We shouldn’t go to far to the left or right. Not the left because we shouldn’t act like others who are doing the wrong things because then you will start to become like them. But you shouldn’t condemn people either. Don’t forget that you were once a non-christian and that you have made your mistakes even till this very day. Jesus never judged anyone not even the Jews because he understands that everyone makes mistakes and can change with God’s help if they want to. We have no right to condemn anyone. We have no right to say who goes to heaven or hell. That is for God to decide not us. It even saids so in the Bible in Luke 6:37 “Judge not and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven.” As I said before, we must treat others the way we would like to be treated and i know good and well that no one likes to be judged or critized. If we want to please the Lord we must always try to be kind and helpful to others.
Just like our parents wanted us to be good and to stay out of trouble that exactly what God wants from us. We shouldn’t be around anyone that gives us nothing but drama and likes to start trouble. We must always stay away from drama and confusion. I understand that your friends may not like the new you because you have chosen to do right instead of getting yourself in to trouble. Don’t worry about what your friends, family or anyone else saids. The Bible said in I Peter 3:13-14 “And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness sake you are blessed. And do not be afraid of their threats nor be troubled.” If you are doing what’s right in gods eyes he will be very pleased with you. and that’s more important then what anybody else thinks. You will be a good example for those who doesn’t know god. So it’s very important that you always do what’s right in god’s eyes no matter what.
This exercise will teach you how to always have faith in God. There are three kinds of faith:
1. Little faith: “I know God can, but I am not sure he will.”
2. Great faith: “I know God can and will.”
3. Perfect faith: “I know God can and will, so I shall act as if it is done.”
When a love one is dying and a doctor said to you there is nothing that they can do that doesn’t mean that their lives are over. Doctor’s don’t have the last words only God can say if its your love ones time or not. When you’re looking for a relationship with someone but you can’t seem to find the right one that you’re looking for. Don’t give up, just be patient and have faith in the Lord. Just because you can’t seem to find anyone doesn’t mean the one your looking for is not out there. When you are losing your faith in God you are giving up and have forgotten who you were dealing with. If God can send is one and only son down here to save our souls and give us eternal life, then what makes you think he can’t cure your loved ones? What make you think he can’t give you someone to spend your life with? I beg you brothers and sisters do not lose your faith in God. Just pray for your situations and for your loved ones and understand that he is god, and that there’s nothing he can’t do.
Try to be gentle to people. Try to watch what you say and how you say it, because words can hurt people. And as children of God we don’t hurt anyone with words. Our Father would not be pleased at all. We should also help those who need to be help. And not everybody is going to be nice to you just because your nice to them but some of them will definitely respect you for what you are doing for them. If someone needs help with groceries “like someone in a wheel chair” we should think about helping them with the groceries. And sometimes what helps is thinking like this: If I was in a wheel chair and I needed help with my groceries wouldn’t I want someone to help me? The more you think like that the more kind and gentle you will become to other people which will make our Heavenly Father very pleased with us.
The fruit of Self-Control
I John 2:15-17 “Do not love the world or love whats in the world. If anybody love the world the love of the Father is not in them. For all that’s in the world is :
The lust of the flesh
The lust of the eyes
The pride of life
“Its passing away and the lust of it, but he who does the will of god abides forever.” When the rapture happens we will not be taking our neckleces, our purses and our weave home with us. Just like when someone passes away no one takes any earthy items with them. We were all born with nothing and we will leave with nothing. Besides my siblings in christ our father has something so much better for all of us. Way better then anything man can ever create. So do not be attached to this world, all it will do is keep you down here.
My brothers in sisters we all have a mission. Our mission is to tell everyone about the The plan of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, how it changed us and what we’ve learned from our walk with God. Now that we are all found we have to try and help others to be found. Tell your friends, family and everyone you know about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Help free our lost brothers and sisters and try your very best to get them to see the light, so that they don’t have to deal with what comes next. You can’t make anyone love God but you can clear the cloud of confusion with the truth. Use your talents and your gifts God has given you to spread the truth about whats right and wrong and what God really wants for us. If they won’t listen to you or they don’t want to hear about God or talk about God then we should back off a little. We can’t push this kind of thing on people especially people who think they know God and who doesn’t believe in God. But there is nothing wrong with bringing up God every once in a while. We must also testify so that the non-christians realizes how wonderful God really is. We shouldn’t scare them into getting saved because God will not except people who want to be with him simply because the don’t want to go to Hell. We don’t condemn those who don’t want to be saved that’s not what God would want. Instead we pray for them and we try to be there for them as best as we can. The angels watches over them all in the spirit world and we’ve try to help them find there way here in the phisical world. Its not too late to save your family and friends until they leave this world. These are your two missions. Fight your phisical body and mind with the help of the Holy Spirit and spread the good news to everyone you know. This is bigger and more important then money, then a relationship, then anything else in this world. Our time of goofing off and playing around is over. Now its time to get down to business and do gods will.
Christians and non-christians
Time to choose
Now that you all know the truth about the Bible. Its time for you to choose what you want to do. Do you want to be with God forever or stay in this world? Do you want to do what God wants you to do? Or would you rather do what you want to do? This is all for you to decide christians and non-christians. For those who are christians understand this: If you don’t practice rightousness you will not be able to enter the Kindom of Heaven. Our Father will not stand for unrightousness . Non-christians, this is your chance to change. You don’t always have to be disobedient. You can be free from this curse that the world is in. You don’t have to sell drugs, you don’t have to sell your body and you certainly don’t have to sell your soul for money, for fame, for a man or women and for attention if you don’t want to. What ever problems you have the Holy Spirit can help you thru it. There’s no reason for you to fight these battles by yourself because you won’t be able to win by yourself you need Gods help. Please everyone come back home where you belong and where you will be safe.
We are running out of time
We don’t have much time. Believe it or not once the rapture happens everything will go right back to the way it was before Jesus was born. God gave us all a gift. The gift of the Holy Spirit. The only thing that will help us win our battles and its also our one way ticket home. If you choose not to repent and if you don’t have the gift of the Holy Spirit then you will not enter the Kindom of Heaven. If you have the Holy Spirit but not using it and haven’t been practicing rightousness you will also not enter the Kindom of Heaven and this is all true. There will be a time where you will be force to choose sides because in the end there is no in between. Either you want to be with God and do right or you want to be in your own little world and do wrong. And for those who don’t believe neither God nor satan, you are still picking satan’s side because satan just don’t want you to worship and be with God. And if you would much rather be attached to your earthly items such as your purse, your phone or your laptop then that is all up to you. For those who are not ready and think that they have all the time in the world knowing that the end of the world could happen in any moment. Do you really think its a good idea to gamble your soul like that? The rapture can come at anytime especially now. Don’t let your mind, your friends or your family keep you from the creator who sacrificed his son for you. I beg of you all, christians don’t do anything that you know would upset God and non-christians don’t miss the rapture. Cause after the rapture things are going to get so much worse. And you don’t want to be here when the 7 years of tribulations come.
The next chapter
