God Jesus said:At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. He who has My commandments

and keeps them,

it is he who loves Me.

And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father,

and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

Heading for the Kingdom of God

Brothers,

In these words:

“Be faithful with what God has given to you”

is everything.

What did God has given to us?

1. LIFE. And we should live as holy people called by God to be holy. If it is required we should give our lives for the sake of other people.

2. LOVE. God gave us His love through love of our parents, relatives and other people. Abortion is crime against a small child and God. God loves fatherless people and He is protecting them. That’s why we should adopt children the same way as our God Father adopted us. There is nothing like that in Islam but I am not talking about Islam but about God of our father Ibrahim who NEVER was in Islam. So, share your life and love with other people because such is the GOOD WILL of God.

Why should we all do what our God is doing?

Because we should share in the blessing of what the Lord is doing. We are called to do what God expects from us:

What does He expect from us?

LOVE toward Him and LOVE toward people.

One day this life with come to an end and we will give our life to the hands of our Father. He loved us always and we tried to love His people. He revealed to us His incomparable LOVE in His perfect Son Jesus. That’s why we have ETERNAL LIFE.

Jesus resurrected people and forgave their sins.

He is the same now. He is God and God cannot be changed.

Tun to His Son Jesus who was killed and suffered terrible pain of our sins on the cross because He accepted the sin of the world to His body to make us FREE.

Free from what?

From slavery of sins.

That’s why we are free and able to rule over sins and to be children of God and not slaves of sins anymore.

Brother, you are free through your FAITH in God Jesus and now you need always build your life on what the Bible says.

How do I know that I am right or wrong? It is from studying the Bible. We are on the fork of the road and we wander what God wants from us.

Study DAILY the word of God written in the Holy Bible during all days of your life until you will die and meditate on His words!

Study and IMPLEMENT everything what Jesus says.

OBEY and God will lead you by the power of His Spirit!

His words are like COURSE for our life.

And we are living inside of our bodies like drivers who are driving forward to the CITY we always desired to see. So, when your bodies will die you will get out of them and you will still exist and you will be judged. So, being in our bodies like in cars, let’s head for the Kingdom of Heaven, KNOWING the course and direction determined by God in the Bible, and let’s follow the rules on this road of our life which are the commandments of God to survive during such difficult trip to safely arrive at out destination. Because any direction leading from God is DEATH and many died on this road when they got stuck and were lost in the desert because their road lead to sin and NOT to God.

So how to live daily with God?

Make thousands of decisions to OBEY God before to act!

And act in obedience!

Jesus Christ has opened the Way,

the ONLY WAY for YOU

to be able to withstand the Judgement Day of God!

John 14 (New King James Version)

John 14

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

The Father Revealed

7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”
8 Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”

9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.
The Answered Prayer
12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you askanything in My name, I will do it.
Jesus Promises Another Helper
15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
Indwelling of the Father and the Son
19 “A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. 20 At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. 21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?”

23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.
The Gift of His Peace
25 “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 You have heard Me say to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.
29 “And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe. 30 I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me. 31 But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave Me commandment, so I do. Arise, let us go from here.

Be saved by God

Arabs and Muslims, be SAVED by God RIGHT NOW!

Brothers, Islam and the Bible call Jesus as Kalimat-Ullah- WORD of Allah!

Will you reject God by rejecting His SON?

Look if you will reject Son, it means you dont believe in His Father Allah.
It means you are AGAINST Allah.

Islam came later after prophecies of Allah already existed that His Son Jesus will save the world from sins. So, what is Islam?
ONE of religions. Look brother, there are millions religions and all they worship millions of gods which are called
by God of Ibrahim as IDOLS.

Way for people worshiping idols is hell. Islam is among them. Why?
Because Islam makes God of our father Ibrahim
a LIAR by claiming that there is NO Son of God.
Islam is closing eyes of Muslims to the words of Allah.
Which man on the earth is able to BEAR INIQUITIES of the world? Sins of people? How SERVANT can JUSTIFY many people?
It is impossible for a man. But only for God!
We worship perfect God. He DIED instead on us. His name is the most perfect – Jesus….Isa Ibn Allah…Isa Allah…Issa Al Massih. And He is God of our father Ibrahim. Turn from sins to HIM and LIVE eternally as son of God!

Be saved right NOW

How to LIVE with God Jesus?

2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, PERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD.

Hebrews 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may SERVE GOD ACCEPTABLY WITH REVERENCE AND GODLY FEAR

Fellowship with God
means YOU Arabs and Muslims
can be called sons of God.
You can be forgiven of ALL your sins!
You can be
adopted by God
THROUGH your Faith
in His Son Jesus.

Can you call Jesus the Son of God? Is He God in your life? Have you given Him absolute control of your life and future?

If not, do is right NOW!


Pray now to the LORD and accept His forgiveness of all your sins through FAITH in His Son – God Jesus Christ!

Pray God right now And be saved!


God is bringing Judgement. Return of the Lord Jesus and His Judgement day should make difference in our behavior. Live your best in purity. Be excited about meeting with the Lord. You should anxiously await with joiful anticipation of the Lord’s return. If your hearts is filled with anticipation, excitement and joy, it indicates that you are walking with the Lord. If you are NOT sure and confident that if you would die today you would go to Heaven, it means you need to get right with God. If you never said- YES- to Jesus, do it today! If you have fallen away from the Lord, come back to Him today.

We will close with prayers:

Father, we believe that Jesus is coming again. We believe we need to be ready. And Lord I am praying about any person who is reading my message and if they dont have confidence that they are ready for Your return, help them to come to You today and get right with You now. Amen.

First, recognise brother, that you are sinner. Be sorry for your sin. And ask God to forgive you right now. The way as we do that TROUGH PRAYER. That’s how we communicate with God.

I’d like to lead you in prayer. If you want Christ to forgive your sins. If you want to know that when you will die you will go to Heaven then pray this prayer with me right now:


God, I know I am a sinner. And I am sorry for what I have done. And I turn from my sin now and ask You to forgive me. Thank You that Your Son Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed His blood for me. Be my Savior and my Lord. And be my friend. I want to follow You from this day forward. Fill me with Your Spirit. And help me to be Your disciple. Thank You for accepting me. Thank You for forgiving me. Thank You that I am now YOURS. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.


If you sincerely asked God to forgive you then WELCOME to the family of God. Now you are adopted by God. Now you bacame His son and His inheritance. His angels have written your name in the Book of Life. And you have the BRIGHT FUTURE.


God Jesus said:

“I tell you the truth,

whoever hears my word

and believes him who sent me

has eternal life and will not be condemned;

he has crossed over from death to life. John 5:24

Walk with God and live eternally Arab nation! Amen.

Rev. 4:8 “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,
who was, and is,
and is to come.

Brothers, God Jesus is COMING BACK to us to the earth. Be prepared to LIVE with Him and not to die without Him! Repent and make your ways straight.

To make your ways straight, then, please the Lord in all you do by BELIEVING in His Son Jesus Christ.

Turn away from a life of sin to a life of righteousness (Rom. 12:21). This is the way of peace (Luke 1:79). It is also the way to prosperity, blessings, answered prayer, joy and every good thing

(Prov. 13:21; 1 John 3:22; Heb. 13:21).

Questions and Answers

Why God didnt protect His Son?

Conversation with Muhammad

Mohammad salam,

My answers to your questions are as follows:

That who says that Allah has got a son is the liar. – No, you are wrong. Mohammad, hell is FULL of unbelievers and Muslims. Why? Because by rejecting the Son of God they rejected His Father who is God of our father Ibrahim.

Allah is one he has no son. – You are WRONG. Allah said in the over 300 prophecies that His Son will come to the earth to redeem us from hell and He should be killed. He said it even BEFORE this word ‘islam’ came into existence. Many centuries before the existence of Islam! So, by rejecting words of God in these prophecies, you so BOLDLY claim that Allah is a LIAR and that’s why you are condemned by him and you will die in hell.

Jesus is his messenger just a man born from a mother without a father this is a miracle of Allah not of Jesus, – Yes He is a Messenger who revealed us the Will of God.

Jesus didn’t create himself and he is not able to create any thing he is a creature created by the one Almighty Allah who created each and every thing.

– Quran said that He created a bird. But the Bible said that He created ALL visible and invisible worlds. He is Allah who is the Creator of everything.

Allah doesn’t need a son to help him because he is the Almighty Allah doesn’t need a son to be his successor because he is Eternal, Allah will not grow old or weak he never sleeps or forgets, why would he need a son.- God is NOT a human being and who are you to tell Him if He needs Son or NOT? You are His clay!

He can forgive all his creatures for what ever sins they would do without the need to get a son and sends him to be killed by people. It does not match with his greatness and holiness.

– If you would only know Islam you would know that even Muhammad was not sure if he would enter the paradise or not. So, if your prophet didn’t know it then how you can be sure that your sins are forgiven?! God sent His Son Isa to REDEEM us from the death in hell and the coming Judgment. He forgave us ALL of our sins through our FAITH in Him. And you will NOT meet such perfect LOVE of God in NO one and in NONE religion made by people and angels. Love of such God who makes us FREE from sins and gives us Future.

How can you ask us to worship a god whom you say that he was killed.– Just do not forget that He ALLOWED to kill Him to SAVE All of us. He didn’t just die, but He accepted all our sins…sin of the world to His HOLY Body (Qur’an also say that Jesus was holy). He died for ours sake and do not forget that POWER of God who created the human beings..Adam and Eva…all planets and universes gathered His BODY to be the ONE again. And He was resurrected by this POWER. He is going to resurrect ALL who will put their TRUST in Him. All who reject Him are doomed to PERISH. Now the question for you: why are you ONE of them who perish? Rebel from this death and His POWER will prove you His existence when you will see His eyes burning like FLAME soon.

A god or even a son of god (if ever there would be one ) is imperishable no creature can kill him, – Yes. Allah and Isa Ibn Allah and Ruh Al Qudus are IMMORTAL. They are ONE and they want to give eternal LIFE too. Why do you reject to accept it? Why do you want to perish? Note: to perish is YOUR decision. But His will is LOVE and LIFE.

Allah says in his QURAAN that Jesus was not killed by the soldiers nor was he crucified because Allah the Almighty would not allow his enemies to kill his messenger, so would he allow them to kill his son (if ever he had one) what do you think of this god he is not strong enough to forgive the sinners without having to get his own son killed.

– Islam is a false religion made BY ANGELS and NOT by God. As we know some of angels are jinnes or fallen angels/ demons. They rebel against God and create false religions. When Muhammad met one of these angels (who called himself as Gabriel) he didn’t believe that he is from God and wife of Muhammad persuaded him that it was revelation of God. Can you imagine Muslims, you are following the religion created by demons and Muhammad but even you leader Muhammad was NOT sure that it was revelation of god. That’s why you are entering the hell like RIVERS by rejection the TRUE Allah of our father Ibrahim who NEVER was in Islam!

What god is that, don’t talk about love that is competing with the strength and glory of god , because Allah is very loving and at the same time very strong and great. – You asked what God is that? He is God of our father Ibrahim. He is the one who created you and this universe and He is going to send the FIRE of His anger to all people who are so boldly CONDEMN Him as you are doing it. The Holy Scripture said that He is the Consuming Fire. And the FIRE and FLAME of His anger will devour you because you perform so many salat but your heart is uncleansed and your hands are in blood of your sins. Because all days of your life you asked forgiveness of the one allah who NEVER existed. So, Allah of our father Ibrahim is CALLING YOU to TURN from idol worship of Islam to receive from His pierced hands …-pierced instead of you- the crown of righteousness, white clothes of righteousness, and eternal life.

There is no God but one that is ALLAH he was the god of Ibrahim and Israel and Jesus and Mohammad and all the world since there was a world and till doom’s day. – During this Judgment Day you will see the LIGHT coming from His hands. Because He is the ONE who is the Creator of this universe and His Father gave Him ALL POWER to judge you for YOUR sins which have NOT been forgiven by God because you knew the TRUTH of God (like prophet Muhammad did it) and you said that your allah is another one. Yes. He is another one who NEVER existed and was revealed to you by angel and NOT by God! Because you will share the future of this fallen angel in the lake of fire in the hell. Again the question for you: why should you join this fallen angel in hell after the Judgment Day? Why don’t you want to share the FUTURE with God in His world?

Where did you read that Allah called us to behead you or to cut your fingers,

Lets read Quran together:

Love of your false god is amazing!

Qur’an 8:12 “Your Lord inspired the angels with the message: ‘I am with you. Give firmness to the Believers. I will terrorize the unbelievers. Therefore smite them on their necks and every joint and incapacitate them. Strike off their heads and cut off each of their fingers and toes.”

Qur’an 8:57 “If you gain mastery over them in battle, inflict such a defeat as would terrorize them, so that they would learn a lesson and be warned.”

Ishaq:326 “If you come upon them, deal so forcibly as to terrify those who would follow, that they may be warned. Make a severe example of them by terrorizing Allah’s enemies.”

Qur’an 8:67 “It is not fitting for any prophet to have prisoners until he has made a great slaughter in the land.”

Bukhari:V4B52N220 “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been made victorious with terror.’”

Ishaq:588 “When the Apostle descends on your land none of your people will be left when he leaves.”

Ishaq:327 “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

Qur’an 9:5 “Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”

Tabari VII:133/Ishaq:387 “When Muhammad saw Hamzah he said, ‘If Allah gives me victory over the Quraysh at any time, I shall mutilate thirty of their men!’ When the Muslims saw the rage of the Prophet they said, ‘By Allah, if we are victorious over them, we shall mutilate them in a way which no Arab has ever mutilated anybody.”

Qur’an 47:4 “So, when you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle, fighting Jihad in Allah’s Cause, smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making (them) captives. Thereafter either generosity or ransom (them based upon what benefits Islam) until the war lays down its burdens. Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam.”

Tabari VIII:122/Ishaq:515 “The Prophet gave orders concerning Kinanah to Zubayr, saying, ‘Torture him until you root out and extract what he has. So Zubayr kindled a fire on Kinanah’s chest, twirling it with his firestick until Kinanah was near death. Then the Messenger gave him to Maslamah, who beheaded him.”

Bukhari:V4B54N487 “The Prophet said, ‘The Hell Fire is 69 times hotter than ordinary worldly fires.’ So someone said, ‘Allah’s Apostle, wouldn’t this ordinary fire have been sufficient to torture the unbelievers?’”

Bukhari:V4B52N260 “Ali burnt some [former Muslims alive] and this news reached Ibn Abbas, who said, ‘Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, “Don’t punish with Allah’s Punishment.” No doubt, I would have killed them, for the Prophet said, “If a Muslim discards his Islamic religion, kill him.”’”

Qur’an 33:26 “Allah made the Jews leave their homes by terrorizing them so that you killed some and made many captive. And He made you inherit their lands, their homes, and their wealth. He gave you a country you had not traversed before.”

Ishaq:580 “Our strong warriors obey his orders to the letter. By us Allah’s religion is undeniably strong. You would think when our horses gallop with bits in their mouths that the sounds of demons are among them. The day we trod down the unbelievers there was no deviation or turning from the Apostle’s order. During the battle the people heard our exhortations to fight and the smashing of skulls by swords that sent heads flying. We severed necks with a warrior’s blow. Often we have left the slain cut to pieces and a widow crying alas over her mutilated husband. ‘Tis Allah, not man we seek to please.”

Tabari IX:69 “He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for those who disbelieve, we will fight them forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing them is a small matter to us.”

Ishaq:489 “Do the bastards think that we are not their equal in fighting? We are men who think that there is no shame in killing.”

Qur’an 2:191 “And kill them wherever you find and catch them. Drive them out from where they have turned you out; for Al-Fitnah (polytheism, disbelief, oppression) is worse than slaughter.”

Qur’an 33:60 “If the Hypocrites stir up sedition, if the agitators in the city do not desist, We shall urge you to go against them and set you over them. Then they will not be able to stay as your neighbors. They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain without mercy—a fierce slaughter—murdered, a horrible murdering.”

Bukhari:V5B59N512 “The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer [Prayer of Fear] near Khaybar when it was still dark. He said, ‘Allahu-Akbar!’ [Allah is Greatest] Khaybar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a hostile nation to fight, then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.’ Then the inhabitants came out running on their roads. The Prophet had their men killed; their children and woman were taken as captives.”

Qur’an 5:33 “The punishment for those who wage war against Allah and His Prophet and make mischief in the land, is to murder them, crucify them, or cut off a hand and foot on opposite sides…their doom is dreadful. They will not escape the fire, suffering constantly.”

Allah didn’t order us except to fight back against those who come to fight us Muslims and to defend our Muslim countries against those who attack us read the history of the crusaders and you will know who is the cruel attackers who killed women and children and the old people and slayed them like sheep

– Lets read what your allah in Islam and Muhammad said about fighting:

Bukhari:V4B52N50 “The Prophet said, ‘A single endeavor of fighting in Allah’s Cause is better than the world and whatever is in it.’”

Ishaq:587 “Our onslaught will not be a weak faltering affair. We shall fight as long as we live. We will fight until you turn to Islam, humbly seeking refuge. We will fight not caring whom we meet. We will fight whether we destroy ancient holdings or newly gotten gains. We have mutilated every opponent. We have driven them violently before us at the command of Allah and Islam. We will fight until our religion is established. And we will plunder them, for they must suffer disgrace.”

Qur’an 9:88 “The Messenger and those who believe with him, strive hard and fight with their wealth and lives in Allah’s Cause.”

Qur’an 9:5 “Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”

Qur’an 9:111 “The Believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and are killed.”

Qur’an 8:39 “Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.”

Ishaq:324 “Fight them so that there is no more rebellion, and religion, all of it, is for Allah only. Allah must not have rivals.”

Qur’an 9:14 “Fight them and Allah will punish them by your hands, lay them low, and cover them with shame. He will help you over them.”

Ishaq:300 “I am fighting in Allah’s service. This is piety and a good deed. In Allah’s war I do not fear as others should. For this fighting is righteous, true, and good.”

Qur’an 9:29 “Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission.”

Ishaq:325 “Muslims, fight in Allah’s Cause. Stand firm and you will prosper.”

Qur’an 8:65 “O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred; if there are a hundred then they will slaughter a thousand unbelievers, for the infidels are a people devoid of understanding.”

Bukhari:V4B52N63 “A man whose face was covered with an iron mask came to the Prophet and said, ‘Allah’s Apostle! Shall I fight or embrace Islam first?’ The Prophet said, ‘Embrace Islam first and then fight.’ So he embraced Islam, and was martyred. Allah’s Apostle said, ‘A Little work, but a great reward.’”

Bukhari:V4B53N386 “Our Prophet ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah alone or pay us the Jizyah tribute tax in submission. Our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says: ‘Whoever amongst us is killed as a martyr shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever survives shall become your master.’”

Bukhari:V4B52N220 “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been made victorious with terror.’”

Qur’an 8:12 “I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”

Qur’an 8:57 “If you gain mastery over them in battle, inflict such a defeat as would terrorize them, so that they would learn a lesson and be warned.”

Ishaq:326 “If you come upon them, deal so forcibly as to terrify those who would follow, that they may be warned. Make a severe example of them by terrorizing Allah’s enemies.”

Qur’an 8:67 “It is not fitting for any prophet to have prisoners until he has made a great slaughter in the land.”

Ishaq:588 “When the Apostle descends on your land none of your people will be left when he leaves.”

Tabari IX:42 “We have been dealt a situation from which there is no escape. You have seen what Muhammad has done. Arabs have submitted to him and we do not have the strength to fight. You know that no herd is safe from him. And no one even dares go outside for fear of being terrorized.”

Ishaq:326 “Allah said, ‘No Prophet before Muhammad took booty from his enemy nor prisoners for ransom.’ Muhammad said, ‘I was made victorious with terror. The earth was made a place for me to clean.’”

Ishaq:327 “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

Qur’an 7:3 “Little do you remember My warning. How many towns have We destroyed as a raid by night? Our punishment took them suddenly while they slept for their afternoon rest. Our terror came to them; Our punishment overtook them.”

Ishaq:510 “When the Apostle looked down on Khaybar he told his Companions, ‘O Allah, Lord of the Devils and what into error they throw, and Lord of the winds and what they winnow, we ask Thee for the booty of this town and its people. Forward in the name of Allah.’ He used to say this of every town he raided.”

Bukhari:V5B59N512 “The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer [Prayer of Fear] near Khaybar when it was still dark. He said, ‘Allahu-Akbar!’ [Allah is Greatest] Khaybar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a hostile nation to fight, then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.’ Then the inhabitants came out running on their roads. The Prophet had their men killed; their children and woman were taken as captives.”

Bukhari:V9B87N127 “The Prophet said, ‘I have been given the keys of eloquent speech and given victory with terror.’”

Ishaq:517 “Khaybar was stormed by the Apostle’s squadron, fully armed, powerful and strong. It brought certain humiliation with Muslim men in its midst. We attacked and they met their doom. Muhammad conquered the Jews in fighting that day as they opened their eyes to our dust.”

Tabari VIII:116/Ishaq:511 “So Muhammad began seizing their herds and their property bit by bit. He conquered home by home.”

Qur’an 33:26 “Allah made the Jews leave their homes by terrorizing them so that you killed some and made many captive. And He made you inherit their lands, their homes, and their wealth. He gave you a country you had not traversed before.”

Qur’an 59:2 “It was Allah who drove the [Jewish] People of the Book from their homes and into exile. They refused to believe and imagined that their strongholds would protect them against Allah. But Allah came at them from where they did not suspect, and filled their hearts with terror. Their homes were destroyed. So learn a lesson, O men who have eyes. This is My warning…they shall taste the torment of Fire.”

Qur’an 33:60 “If the Hypocrites stir up sedition, if the agitators in the City do not desist, We shall urge you to go against them and set you over them. Then they will not be able to stay as your neighbors. They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain without mercy—a fierce slaughter—murdered, a horrible murdering.”

Bukhari:V4B52N256 “The Prophet passed by and was asked whether it was permissible to attack infidels at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, ‘Their women and children are from them.’”

Ishaq:576 “Allah and His servant overwhelmed every coward. Allah honored us and made our religion victorious. We were glorified and destroyed them all. Allah humiliated them in the worship of Satan. By what our Apostle recites from the Book and by our swift horses, I liked the punishment the infidels received. Killing them was sweeter than drink. We galloped among them panting for the spoil. With our loud-voiced army, the Apostle’s squadron advanced into the fray.”

Ishaq:580 “Our strong warriors obey his orders to the letter. By us Allah’s religion is undeniably strong. You would think when our horses gallop with bits in their mouths that the sounds of demons are among them. The day we trod down the unbelievers there was no deviation or turning from the Apostle’s order. During the battle the people heard our exhortations to fight and the smashing of skulls by swords that sent heads flying. We severed necks with a warrior’s blow. Often we have left the slain cut to pieces and a widow crying alas over her mutilated husband. ‘Tis Allah, not man we seek to please.”

Tabari IX:69 “He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for those who disbelieve, we will fight them forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing them is a small matter to us.”

Bukhari:V5B59N516 “When Allah’s Apostle fought or raided people we raised our voices saying, ‘Allahu-Akbar! Allahu-Akbar! None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’”

Ishaq:208 “When Allah gave permission to his Apostle to fight, the second Aqaba contained conditions involving war which were not in the first act of submission. Now we bound themselves to war against all mankind for Allah and His Apostle. He promised us a reward in Paradise for faithful service. We pledged ourselves to war in complete obedience to Muhammad no matter how evil the circumstances.”

Ishaq:472 “Muhammad’s Companions are the best in war.”

Qur’an 8:7 “Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels out to the last.’”

Qur’an 8:15 “Believers, when you meet unbelieving infidels in battle while you are marching for war, never turn your backs to them. If any turns his back on such a day, unless it be in a stratagem of war, a maneuver to rally his side, he draws on himself the wrath of Allah, and his abode is Hell, an evil refuge!”

Qur’an 8:39 “So, fight them till all opposition ends and the only religion is Islam.”

Qur’an 8:45 “O believers! When you meet an army, be firm, and think of Allah’s Name much; that you may prosper.”

Qur’an 8:57 “If you meet them in battle, inflict on them such a defeat as would be a lesson for those who come after them, that they may be warned.”

Qur’an 8:58 “If you apprehend treachery from any group on the part of a people (with whom you have a treaty), retaliate by breaking off (relations) with them. The infidels should not think that they can bypass (the law or punishment of Allah). Surely they cannot get away.”

Qur’an 8:59 “The infidels should not think that they can escape. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them. They are your enemy and Allah’s enemy.”

Qur’an 8:60 “And make ready against the infidels all of the power you can, including steeds of war [the Noble Qur’an says these are: tanks, planes, missiles, and artillery] to threaten the enemy of Allah and your enemy. And whatever you spend in Allah’s Cause shall be repaid unto you.” [Another translation reads:] Qur’an 8:60 “Prepare against them whatever arms and cavalry you can muster that you may strike terror in the enemies of Allah, and others besides them. Whatever you spend in Allah’s Cause will be repaid in full.”

Qur’an 8:71 “He will give you mastery over them.”

Ishaq:204 “‘Men, do you know what you are pledging yourselves to in swearing allegiance to this man?’ ‘Yes. In swearing allegiance to him we are pledging to wage war against all mankind.’”

Ishaq:471 “We are steadfast trusting Him. We have a Prophet by whom we will conquer all men.”

Qur’an 4:77 “Lord, why have You ordained fighting for us, why have You made war compulsory?”

Qur’an 4:71 “Believers, take precautions and advance in detachments or go (on expeditions) together in one troop.’”

Ishaq:322 “Allah said, ‘Do not turn away from Muhammad when he is speaking to you. Do not contradict his orders. And do not be a hypocrite, one who pretends to be obedient to him and then disobeys him. Those who do so will receive My vengeance. You must respond to the Apostle when he summons you to war.”

Ishaq:544 “Hassan incited the men, reciting: ‘This is the time for war. Don’t feel safe from us. Our swords will open the door to death.’”

Bukhari:V5B57N1 “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘A time will come when a group of Muslims will wage a Holy War and it will be said, “Is there anyone who has accompanied Allah’s Apostle?” They will say, “Yes.” And so victory will be bestowed on them.’”

Ishaq:574 “In faith I do not fear the army of fate. He gave us the blood of their best men to drink when we led our army against them. We are a great army with a pungent smell. And we attack continuously, wherever our enemy is found.”

So, worship of such allah and such Muhammad is just MADNESS. But there is NO madness in the God of our father Ibrahim. He is LOVE and He rejected to kill His enemies when they wanted to crucify Him. So, your allah is war and imagination and deception of the fallen angel. But our Allah is GOING to judge YOU Muhammad for this MADNESS of Islam you confess. So, TURN to God of our father Ibrahim and ALLOW Him to wash you like during WUDU from your blood….blood of your sins….

This discussion is obsolete because either you are ignorant or you are trying to deceive us, Muslim armies never killed children nor women nor the non fighting old men but christian armies the crusaders did that islam spread allover the world in lands where no one muslim soldier has ever went , in Indonesia , inphilippines , in Burma , and in Nigeria and many other countries even in Egypt and in Spain the muslim armies never forced one person to become muslim. – You have enough proof of madness of Islam in Qur’an. I gave you a chance to read it. One more Sura:

Qur’an 47:4 “So, when you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle (fighting Jihad in Allah’s Cause), smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making (them) captives. Thereafter either generosity or ransom (them based upon what benefits Islam) until the war lays down its burdens. Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam.”

Tabari IX:69 “Killing disbelievers is a small matter to us.”

Tabari VIII:141 “The battle cry of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah that night was: ‘Kill! Kill! Kill!’”

Bukhari:V5B59N512 “The Prophet had their men killed, their women and children taken captive.”

Ishaq:489 “Do the bastards think that we are not their equal in fighting? We are men who think that there is no shame in killing.”

Qur’an 2:191 “And kill them wherever you find and catch them. Drive them out from where they have turned you out; for Al-Fitnah (polytheism, disbelief, oppression) is worse than slaughter.”

Qur’an 33:60 “If the Hypocrites stir up sedition, if the agitators in the city do not desist, We shall urge you to go against them and set you over them. Then they will not be able to stay as your neighbors. They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain without mercy—a fierce slaughter—murdered, a horrible murdering.”

Bukhari:V4B52N270 “Allah’s Messenger said, ‘Who is ready to kill Ashraf? He has said injurious things about Allah and His Apostle.’ Maslama got up saying, ‘Would you like me to kill him?’ The Prophet proclaimed, ‘Yes.’ Maslama said, ‘Then allow me to lie so that I will be able to deceive him.’ Muhammad said, ‘You may do so.’”

Ishaq:368 “Ka’b’s body was left prostrate [humbled in submission]. After his fall, all of the Nadir Jews were brought low. Sword in hand we cut him down. By Muhammad’s order we were sent secretly by night. Brother killing brother. We lured him to his death with guile [cunning or deviousness]. Traveling by night, bold as lions, we went into his home. We made him taste death with our deadly swords. We sought victory for the religion of the Prophet.”

Tabari VII:97/Ishaq:368 “We carried Ka’b’s head and brought it to Muhammad during the night. We saluted him as he stood praying and told him that we had slain Allah’s enemy. When he came out to us we cast Ashraf’s head before his feet. The Prophet praised Allah that the poet had been assassinated and complimented us on the good work we had done in Allah’s Cause. Our attack upon Allah’s enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina who did not fear for his life.’”

Tabari VII:97 “The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, ‘Kill any Jew who falls under your power.’”

Ishaq:369 “Thereupon Mas’ud leapt upon Sunayna, one of the Jewish merchants with whom his family had social and commercial relations and killed him. The Muslim’s brother complained, saying, ‘Why did you kill him? You have much fat in you belly from his charity.’ Mas’ud answered, ‘By Allah, had Muhammad ordered me to murder you, my brother, I would have cut off your head.’ Wherein the brother said, ‘Any religion that can bring you to this is indeed wonderful!’”

Bukhari:V1B1N6 “Just issue orders to kill every Jew in the country.”

Ishaq: 676 “‘You obey a stranger who encourages you to murder for booty. You are greedy men. Is there no honor among you?’ Upon hearing those lines Muhammad said, ‘Will no one rid me of this woman?’ Umayr, a zealous Muslim, decided to execute the Prophet’s wishes. That very night he crept into the writer’s home while she lay sleeping surrounded by her young children. There was one at her breast. Umayr removed the suckling babe and then plunged his sword into the poet. The next morning in the mosque, Muhammad, who was aware of the assassination, said, ‘You have helped Allah and His Apostle.’ Umayr said. ‘She had five sons; should I feel guilty?’ ‘No,’ the Prophet answered. ‘Killing her was as meaningless as two goats butting heads.’”

Bukhari:V1B11N626 “The Prophet said, ‘No prayer is harder for the hypocrites than the Fajr. If they knew the reward they would come to (the mosque) even if they had to crawl. I decided to order a man to lead the prayer and then take a flame to burn all those who had not left their houses for the prayer, burning them alive inside their homes.’”

Tabari VIII:178/Ishaq:550 “Muhammad ordered that certain men should be assassinated even if they were found behind the curtains of the Ka’aba. Among them was Abdallah bin Sa’d [the Qur’an’s first scribe]. The reason that Allah’s Messenger ordered that he should be slain was because he had become a Muslim and used to write down Qur’an Revelation. Then he apostatized [rejected Islam].”

Ishaq:597 “When the Apostle returned to Medina after his raid on Ta’if, word spread that he had killed some of the men who had satirized and insulted him. The poets who were left spread in all directions.”

Since the day the islamic armies entered Egypt and up to present date no one christian was forced to become Muslim. But in Spain when the christians took back the land read what happened and how they tried for more than 2 hundred years to force the remaining muslims to convert by all ways of terror and at the end they forced the muslims on barb ships to the African coast.

– Brother, many unbelievers are doing what they want. You and I both know it. But Teaching of our Creator Jesus is AGAINST WAR, Killing, murders, crimes and disbelief. People who are doing it will NEVER enter the Kingdom of God.

I will tell you one last thing if you lie to me today you will not be able to lie to god on dooms day so for your own sake if you are really afraid of hell fire ( and you should be ) stop repeating this false statements use your honest judgment because no one can defeat GOD , – Brother, all liers will join unbelievers and murders in the fire of hell. That’s why I prefer NOT to lie. But I am showing you the TRUTH. God Jesus said:

‘I am the TRUTH, the WAY and the LIFE, and NO one will come to the Father except through ME”.

Good Bye and don’t waste your breath on me I already know the truth that you don’t. Your false ‘truth’ is leading you to hell. That’s why I am here to TESTIFY you about the TRUTH who is God Jesus.

Bahira , no offense , you are completely lost between the correct meaning of the words you are using ; son is a born creature from a female and male that is a father and mother , this is a purely physical relation of flesh and blood ALLAH is not made of flesh and blood at least we don`t have any proof for that but Jesus christ was flesh and blood.

– Brother, Jesus is God and Son of God and our Creator. He is EQUAL to His Father in the POWER and LOVE and MERCY and JUSTICE. Submit to Him or God of our father Ibrahim will devour you like fire for your INJUSTICE.

We should stop using the words sometimes metaphorically and in other times as factual. – By calling Jesus as Son of God we say it NOT metaphorically. God Jesus is NOT a human being but He lived in the body of human being the same way like I am Bahira living in my body. And after my death, namely after death of my body I will NOT die but I will be judged by God. How then God could have a Son if He is NOT a human being. God explains it to us:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. It means that Jesus is the Word of God. Like my words are produced by me they are my part and me. That’s why in any court I would be justified and condemned by my words. The same way God Jesus is the Word of God according to Qur’an and the HOLY BIBLE.

Jesus is not a god, – God said an proved us that Jesus is God.

Jesus is a man of flesh and blood, born from a woman`s womb,- Yes, it was miracle of God.

He is so strong. Why should he have a son????

– The same question why does He need Ruh Al Qudus? God is NOT a human being. He is an ALIEN if you wish. He is doing what He wants and His actions are JUSTICE and TRUTH.

If he has a son he will not allow his enemies to kill his son and if Jesus is a god how come he gets killed Can this be logical a god gets killed ???? why ???

– He – Isa Ibn Allah was killed by unbelievers because He BOLDLY claimed to be God who is able to resurrect dead people and forgive their sins. But being God , He also refused to kill His enemies because He came to His earth to reveal us His FATHER that His Father is LOVE. God of LOVE. And killings described in Quran and Hadith are ABOMINATION for such HOLY God. Get out of the hell of Islam which you will share soon in the hell with false prophet Muhammad and TURN your face to the ONE God of our father Ibrahim who is LOVE, was LOVE and promises to LOVE you eternally by blessing you as His adopted son.

To forgive the sins of his slaves whom he created by his own hands ???? what is this god you are talking about.

– I am talking about God who desires to forget that you are His creature and slave. Such God adopts us through our FAITH in His Son. There is NO such God in this world. ONLY ONE. And He is God described in the Holy Bible.


Who is ‘Isa Allah?

Conversation with Ahmad

Ahmad salam,

YOU SAID: ISA IS GOD AFTER THAT, YOU SAID? ISA IS GOD’S SON HOW. – ‘Isa is God and at the same time Isa Ibn Allah because His Father is GOD. He has the same power like His Father has that’s why He was able to resurrect DEAD people and forgive their sins. You have your son and your son is also Arab. The same way God has Son and His Son is God.

NOONE CONVINCES ABOUT THAT– Water can be in different forms (ice, snow and steam but it remains to be WATER, the same way God is ONE and TREE (Baba Allah, Isa Ibn Allah, Ar-Ruh Al Qudus). I am Bahira ONE lady and at the same time I am TREE (body, soul and spirit) but I am ACTING in UNITY as ONE. The same way God is ONE and He is tri-united!!! By the way I am talking about God of our father Ibrahim.
ALLA CREATOR EVERY THING AND ALLAH IS GREAT– Yes. Allah created everything and the Holy Scripture says that His name –name of the ONE who created everything and you- is ‘ISA ALLAH!

NOT PERSON LIKE US– God Jesus existed in the beginning with God Father. Later He descended from heaven into human body and was born as a child on the earth and He lived in the body of human being on the earth. He was killed and resurrected. Now He is ALIVE and He is coming back to His EARTH created by Him to JUDGE us. Be ready! Repent! Believe in Him and you will be justified during the Judgment Day!

ISA IS ONLY MESSENGER, HE IS PERSON AND ALLAH GAVE HIM MIRACLES FOR PROOF HIS MASSAGE HE IS NOT ALLA’S SON– Yes, ‘Isa was called also as prophet because He told us the words of God. He resurrected DEAD people by the power of God who lived in His BODY because He lived in His body (like I am living inside of my body). So, no one of the prophets and people are able to resurrect people but ONLY God is able to do it. So, miracles of ‘Isa proved that He is God!

ALLAH BEGETS NOT, NOR WAS HE BEGOTTEN. – The problem is that the Son of God Jesus was begotten! God didn’t need any women to have a Son. He is NOT a human being. But His Son Jesus is Kalimat-Ullah (Qur’an and Bible say it). He is BORN by God like I am speaking and all my words are produced by my mind!!!

NONE HAS THE RIGHT TO BE WORSHIPPED BUT ALLA, -Yes! We –christians- worship ONLY Allah!

AND MUHAMMAD AND ISA ARE THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH. – Yes Jesus was a messenger of Allah. Muhammad was a false prophet who didn’t accept Isa Ibn Allah. And by rejecting Isa Ibn Allah He REJECTED Allah! That’s why he is in hell right now and all Muslims are joining him. But you can be FREE of your sins through your FAITH in God Jesus.

Arabs are Israel?

Conversation with Walid

Walid:

Now i will answer you the question i asked: Israel is Jacob.
At the end you are welcomed to twist the facts as you wish, but the bottom line you admitted to the fact that the Koran is the word of Allah, and you quoted from the Koran based upon that admission, and thus you believe in the Koran and the message with in, other wise you wouldn’t have used verses from the Koran to prove your point. Now that is said, i put you where i wanted all along and made you believe in the Koran, but do not worry because i know deep inside your heart you have doubts about your religion but your pride and arrogance wouldn’t allow you to convert, but one day you will. Have a good life my mission complete now.


Bahira: If you would read what was written by me about Israel you would know who are Arabs and israel.
Here are some references to my articles:
http://muslimstudy.wordpress.com/palestine-and-israel/

https://arabkingdom.wordpress.com/christian-god-loves-arabs-but-why/

Some quotes:

Nation of the descendants of Ibrahim.

A blessed nation

who received God’s blessings and love and His protection.

God, rise up, save and protect Arabs!

Brothers it is time now to talk about Arabs. Who are Arabs and what will be their destiny.
I will offer you some questions and try to answer them after reading Suras (:)) in Bible. Ok?
1. First of all, who are Arabs?
The earliest documented use of the word “Arab” as defining a group of people dates from the 9th century BCE. Islamized but non-Arabized peoples, and therefore the majority of the world’s Muslims, do not form part of the Arab World but comprise what is the geographically larger and more diverse Muslim World…..


https://arabkingdom.wordpress.com/jihad-or-life-my-palestine/

https://arabkingdom.wordpress.com/to-kill-arab-arabs-and-israel/

BROTHER, of course i know that Jacob is Israel and his descendants are called as Israelites. God gave him this name.

Some information about who are Jews:

The Jews, also known as the Jewish people, are a nation and ethnoreligious group originating in the Israelites or Hebrews of the Ancient Near East. The Jewish ethnicity, nationality, and religion are strongly interrelated, as Judaism is the traditional faith of the Jewish nation. Converts to Judaism, whose status as Jews within the Jewish ethnos is equal to those born into it, have been absorbed into the Jewish people throughout the millennia. In Jewish tradition, Jewish ancestry is traced to the Biblical patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the second millennium BCE. So, this is information well known by Muslims and all kind of historians…

Come to Jesus

by Niqabbigirl » Mon Jul 05, 2010 2:29 am

COME TO JESUS

“Come to Jesus” was a widely distributed and popular Gospel tract, especially among soldiers during the Civil War period. It was written by Newman Hall (1816-1902) and printed by the Evangelical Tracty Society of Petersburg, VA. .

LISTEN, dear fellow-sinner. How kind, how wonderful an invitation is this! God speaks, and speaks to THEE. The Father says, “COME.” The Son says, “COME.” The Holy Spirit says, “COME.” The blessed angels echo the cry, “COME.” Many poor sinners who have accepted the call, join their voices in the appeal, and say, “Come to Jesus.” This little book unites in the entreaty, poor sinner, and with all earnestness, plainness and affection, implores thee to “COME to JESUS.”
When he was himself on earth, well knowing and full of pity for the sufferings and sins of men, as he looked round on the crowd which one day surrounded him, he tenderly said, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Mat. 11:28-30. What he said then he says NOW. The invitation he gave to the men of that day, he gives to THEE, my fellow-sinner: “Come unto me.’, Art thou not heavy laden with guilt? O then come to Jesus and thou shalt find rest. COME TO JESUS; COME TO JESUS.’

COME TO JESUS.

HE promises rest. But far better than rest of body is rest of soul. It is wretched to be a slave, to groan, bleed, toil; but far worse to be Satan’s bondman, dragging about an evil conscience and an aching heart. Rest from this cannot be had but by coming to Jesus. And if we come, he will lighten every other load. Are you poor? Come, and he will make you rich for ever. Are you sick? Come, and he will cure your worst disease. Are you sad? Come, and he will wipe away your tears. Are you bereaved? Come, and he will be to you a brother in adversity, who changes not, and never dies. Is sin a burden? O then come to Jesus and he will take it all away. Do you dread the day of death and judgment? Come, and that day will be the dawn of life and glory. O then come. To be merely called by such a person should beenough to make us glad. Of a stranger, we might say, “Perhaps he intends me no good;” of a poor man, “He cannot assist me, however willing;” of a selfish rich man,” Who can expect aught from him?” But if a Howard or a Wilberforce said to a mourner, “Come,” he might feel quite sure some kindness was intended. Now he who invites thee, sinner, is both able and willing to help. He has clothes for the naked, food for the hungry, wealth for the poor, eternal life for all. His very word, “Come,” is enough to make thee glad. A blind beggar by the way side, hearing he was passing, cried out, “Mercy, mercy!” The people told him to be quiet; but he shouted the louder, “Have mercy on me!” Jesus invited him: and then some said, as though he might now be quite sure of a blessing, “Be of good comfort; rise, he calleth thee.” They knew Jesus never called and then refused; and so they told him to rejoice. Sinner, be you of good cheer; the, same Jesus calleth thee. As the blind man threw off his cloak lest it should hinder him, do you cast off every sin that would stop you–rush through every crowd of difficulties, and falling at the feet of Jesus say, “Have mercy on me? I am blind, I am lost; save, or I perish.” Are you too great a sinner? The more need to come. Have you a guilty conscience? With that guilty conscience come. Have you a wicked heart? With that wicked heart come. Have you nothing with which to purchase his favor? “Without money” come. Rich and poor, masters and servants, old and young, white man and black, sinners, of every class, COME.

Read Isa. 55; Matt. 8:1-17; 11:28-30; Mark 10:46-52; Rev. 22:17.

WHY SHOULD I COME?
YOU ARE A SINNER, COME FOR PARDON.

Perhaps you do not feel you are a sinner. At least, you think you are no worse than others, but better than many. You are no drunkard, thief, adulterer, but keep the Sabbath, read the Bible, and attend the house of God. But have you indeed obeyed all the commandments? Never broken any of them? Always been true, chaste, sober, honest, forgiving, kind? Never indulged in pride, malice, anger, deceit, or lust? God requires purity of heart as well as of outward conduct, and he knows all our thoughts. Have you then never cherished the thought of sin in your heart, though you have feared outwardly to commit it? Besides, the first and chief command is, to love the Lord our God with all our mind and strength. Have you always done this; always been thankful for his mercies; always carefully read his word in order to obey it; always tried to please him, loved to pray to him, taken delight in his day, his people, his worship; always striven to be “holy as he is holy,” to make known his truth, to induce others to love him, and endeavored in all things to glorify him? If you have always done this, you have still only just done your duty, and have nothing to boast of. But you have not done it. Conscience tells you so. You know you have sinned thousands of times. You know you have sought your own pleasure, and in your best actions you have not been prompted by a desire to please God. You have lived for yourself; you have sought man’s approval, but God has not been in all your thoughts. The Bible tells us, “If man say he hath no sin, he deceiveth himself. There is none righteous, no, not one. All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” O, my fellow-sinner, is it not true of thee, “The God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, thou hast not glorified?” You are a sinner. Guilt, enormous guilt hangs upon you. In God’s book all your sins are written down. You cannot get rid of them. Were you to labour for thousands of years, you could not atone for the least. All you could do would only be your duty. Paying to-day’s debt still leaves yesterday’s where it was. And were you to give all you possess, or suffer torture and death, it would not take away sin. The past cannot be recalled. But there is forgiveness, free, full, eternal, for the guilty. Jesus has pardon for thee, sinner, purchased with his own blood. Come for it. Come to Jesus Christ for it.

Read Exod. 20:1-18; Psalms 51:139; Matt. 5; Rom. 3:10-20, 23; 1 John 1:8-10.

GOD IS ANGRY–COME TO BE RECONCILED.

The Bible says “God is angry with the wicked every day. He hateth all workers of iniquity.” And has not God much cause to be angry with thee, sinner? He gave and preserves your life and faculties, and bestows all your comforts. Yet you forget him. He has told you his commands; and these are all intended to do you good, yet you do not regard them. You do not reverence God, but live almost as if there was no such Being. What an ungrateful son would you be, if thus you treated your parents–if you avoided their company, disliked to think of them, and disregarded their wishes! Hear then what God says: “Hear, O heavens, and be astonished, O earth! I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.” He is full of love to you, as a tender Father; but by your sins you have grieved him. Besides, he is your Creator, King, and righteous Judge, and must and will punish all sinners. He must act, to those who rebel, not as a kind parent, but as an angry monarch. It is your own fault, however, that he is angry. You make him so. Your sins separate between you and God. As long as you live without repenting of sin, his anger must ever be hot against you, sinner, and you cannot escape or hide from him. Wherever you are, he is there, and he is angry. He “compasses your path and your lying down,” and he is angry. It depends on him whether or not you draw your very next breath, and he is angry. O sinner, better for all the world to be angry with thee than God. What an awful life is yours! The “wrath of God abideth on you.” How dreadful to feel when going to bed, “God is angry”–to awake and know “God is angry,”–wherever you go, and whatever you do, “God is angry.” And O, to die knowing that “God is angry;” and to stand before his judgment seat, and see that he is angry. Sinner, he is angry only while you make him so; he is willing to be your friend; he sent his Son with this message, “Be ye reconciled to God.” If you will give your heart to that Messenger, and trust in him, all this anger will cease. O then, come to Jesus. Be no longer Gods foe, but accept the offer be his friend. But beware, beware of rejecting Jesus; for he says, “He that believeth not,” that is, does not come to “the Son, shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.”

Read John 3:36; Psalm 7:11; 11:5, 6; 21:8, 9; Rom. 1:18; 2:5-9; 2 Cor. 5:18-21; Eph. 5:6; 2 Thess. 1:7-9.

HELL AWAITS YOU–COME TO BE SAVED.

Hell is not a fable invented by priests to frighten their fellow-men; but as sure as the Bible is the word of God, so sure is it that “the wicked shall be turned into hell, and all nations that forget God.” “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” “Then all men must give an account of the deeds done in the body.” “God will judge the secrets of men.” Then all sinners who have not obtained pardon by coming to Jesus will be on the left hand of the Judge, who will pronounce their dreadful sentence, “Depart, ye cursed into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.’ O who can tell the torments of that place? No more pleasant light of day, no more cheerful voice of friends, no more comforts of home, no more pleasures of the world and sin. The rich man can take none of his wealth with him, the gay man none of his amusements. Conscience will dart its sting past sins will be clearly remembered, and past opportunities of escape now gone for ever. O, that one of them might come back! O for one more Sabbath! O for one more hour to pray for mercy! But it will be then too late, too late. Darkness for ever, sin for ever, woe for ever, death for ever. Jesus speaks of it as “the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone –outer darkness, where there is weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth–where the worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched”–where the wicked rich man, being in torments, cried out, “Send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue, for I am tormented in this flame.” There he that is filthy shall be “filthy still,” and “the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever.” What misery can be greater than what such words as these describe? How dreadful, then, to be in hell! What more horrible? And every unforgiven sinner is on his way to it. You whose eye now reads this page, if you are not pardoned, you are on your way. Every hour brings you nearer. Once there, and all hope is gone for ever. But is there no escape? Yes; one way, and one only. Flee to Jesus. He came to save from hell. “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in,” cometh to, “him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Nothing can save you if you will not come; nothing can prevent your salvation, if you do come.

Read Matt. 18:1-13; 25; Mark 9:43-48; Luke 16:19-31; Rev. 14:10, 11; 20:11-15; 22:11-15.

FOR PEACE OF CONSCIENCE, COME.

“There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.” Some sinners seem to be at peace, but it is only by refusing to think. They will not consider. But such thoughtlessness is not worthy to be called peace. It is like a man in a sinking ship, who will not examine what is the danger; or like a tradesman, who fancies all is not going on well, but will not look into his accounts, lest his mind should be disturbed. So the sinner fancies something is wrong, and fearing to be made unhappy, he banishes reflection about God and his soul. Yet every sinner thinks sometimes, and then he must be wretched. When death visits a neighbors house, or enters his own, or threatens himself, and at many other times, the thought will come, “God is angry; my soul is in danger; I am not fit to die.” And how much such a thought damp his pleasure, and disturb his repose.
No, you cannot be at peace till you have obtained pardon. You may try all the pleasures of the world in turn, you may seek to drown thought by plunging deeper and deeper into sin, but you cannot be happy. But when we come to Jesus, all our sins are at once forgiven. We still think of them with sorrow, but we need no more think of them with terror. God says to us, “Your sins and your iniquities will I remember no more.” He blots out “all trespasses.” He “casts them behind his back into the depths of the sea.” They will not be mentioned at the judgment day. “He will abundantly pardon.” He now regards us with love. We need not be afraid of him. He invites us to trust him as a kind friend. Instead of hiding from him, as Adam did, we may hide in him, as David did, saying, “Thou art my hiding place.” O what a happy change! I am a sinner still, but a sinner pardoned, reconciled, saved. And whatever dreadful things conscience may tell me, Jesus says, “Thy sins are forgiven thee; go in peace.” “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you.” “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Poor sinner, you and peace have long been strangers. Worldly pleasure is not peace; and nothing can give it while you and God are enemies, and your sins hang heavily on your soul. Come then to Jesus. He both makes and gives peace. Seek pardon through him, and you will soon know what is meant by “the peace of God which passeth all understanding.”

See Isa. 55:7; 57:21; Micah 7:18, 19; John 14:27; Rom. 5:1; 8:31-34; Phil. 4:7.

FOR A NEW HEART–COME.

“Ye must be born again,” said Christ to Nicodemus. There must be a great change in our thoughts and feelings respecting God, before we are able to serve him on earth and enjoy him in heaven. Sin has estranged our minds from God, so that we do not desire him and love him. True religion is not pleasant to us. This is being “carnally minded, which is death.” To love the things which sin makes distasteful is a great change, like coming to life. It is called the new birth, or regeneration. “Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Unconverted sinner, how can you expect to enter heaven? You would not be happy there. A swallow enjoys the air, and a cow the meadows, but a fish would soon languish there and die; there must be adaptation. Music charms those alone who have an ear for it; books are no treat to those who dislike reading; and society is only pleasant when it is congenial. A clown would not feel at ease at court, the ignorant cannot enjoy the company of the learned, the profligate do not love the society of the virtuous; and just so the ungodly cannot take pleasure in religion. Is not the Sabbath to you a dull day, the Bible a dry book, religious conversation unpleasant, prayer a task, and the company of the pious irksome? But heaven is all Sabbath, all worship, all holiness –its inhabitants all righteous; and their talk and actions all have reference to God. Heaven is happy because it is holy, and because God is there. But if you do not love holiness and God, it would not be a happy place for you. You would wander about a miserable, solitary thing, damping the enjoyment you could not share, and polluting the temple in which you alone would be made to worship. Therefore, unless born again, you never will enter. You cannot, I know, change your own heart, but the Spirit of God can. And Jesus died to obtain for us the gift of the Spirit. And this gift is freely bestowed on all who sincerely apply to the Saviour for it. O then earnestly pray for the Spirit of God, that you may be born again. Come to Jesus with the petition of David, “Create in me a new heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” And for your encouragement, think of the gracious assurance of Christ, “If ye, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father, which is in heaven, give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?”

Read John 3:1-21; Rom. 8:5-9; Eph. 2:1-6; Psa. 51:10-12 ; Luke 11:1-13.

FOR THE PRIVILEGES AND JOYS OF ADOPTION–COME.

Persons of wealth sometimes take the children of the poor, and train them as their own; this is called adoption. And thus God describes his treatment of those who come to Jesus. “Ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord God Almighty.” “We have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” We are permitted, in prayer, to address God as “our Father, which art in heaven.” He loves these adopted children with more than an earthly parent’s affection. He teaches, watches over, comforts, feeds, protects them. Sorrows are his kind chastisements, intended for their benefit. “If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for whom the Lord loveth, he chasteneth.” In all their trials, he consoles them. “Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.” “As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you.” Sickness, poverty, bereavement, all their troubles, are overruled for their advantage. “All things work together for good to them that love God.” “They shall not want any good thing.” “No weapon formed against them shall prosper.” In every difficulty and danger their Father is at their side. “Fear not; for I have redeemed thee. I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee.” “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.” They may tell their Father all their wants. “In everything make known your requests unto God.” His ear is ever open to their cry, and his hand ever outstretched to do them good. As a Father, he provides for them an inheritance; but unlike those of earth, it is “incorruptible, undefiled, and fadeth not away.’ Oh what happiness to be a child of God; to feel “God is my Father! He loves me, pities, pardons, keeps me. I am safe from all evil. Wicked men and wicked spirits cannot harm me. God is my refuge, ever near; and he never slumbers, never is weary, never forgets, and will never change. He says, ‘I have loved thee with an everlasting love.’ He will be always near me while on my journey here, and at last will take me to dwell with him in his palace forever.” What earthly greatness can equal this? Reader, would you be a child of God! You may, if you come to Jesus; for “as many as received,” came to, “him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God.”

See Psa. 91; John 1:12, 13; Rom. 8:14-17; 2 Cor. 6:17,18; Heb. 12:5-12: 1 John 3:1, 2.

THAT YOU MAY ENTER HEAVEN–COME.

As there is a place of punishment for the wicked, so there is a heaven of glory for all who come to Jesus. God, in his great love to sinners, sent his Son not only to deliver them from hell, but to make them happy and glorious with him forever. When a believer dies, though his body decays, his soul is at once with Jesus, which is “far better.” How delightful is the description the Bible gives of heaven. We are told that sickness, sorrow, and death never enter there; that cares, fears, and anxieties are never felt there; that poverty, privation, unkindness, and disappointment are never known there. The body that will rise from the grave will be “incorruptible,” and will never experience pain, weariness, or decay. Old age will never enfeeble, for there will be perpetual youth; and death will never snatch away those we love, for death itself will be destroyed. What is still better, there will be no more sin, but all hearts will be full of holy love to God, and to one another. Every one will rejoice in the society and happiness of every one else, and God himself will dwell among them. All the good men of former ages will be there –the martyrs, and apostles, and prophets. There, too, we shall meet with angels and archangels; and more than all, we shall behold Jesus in his glorified human body–we shall see his face and ever be with the Lord. To show how glorious heaven is, it is compared to a city with streets of gold, gates of pearl, and walls of jasper and emerald; to a paradise with a river clear as crystal, and the tree of life with healing leaves; to a place of rest after labor; to a father’s house, a happy home. “They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. Everlasting joy shall be upon their heads. In his presence is fullness of joy, and at his right hand are pleasures forevermore.” “The best joys of earth are soon gone. Riches fly, health decays, friends depart, death is written on all things[.”] But the joys of heaven are forever, and forever, and forever. Reader, this heaven may be thine. Jesus keeps the door, but he has opened it wide for all sinners to enter. If you will not come to Jesus, you cannot enter heaven; for he is the door, the only door. But he invites you to come. Yes, however guilty and vile you are, heaven may, and certainly will be yours, if you come to Jesus. “To you is the word of this salvation sent.” O, then, for heavenly bliss, come to Jesus.

See John 14:1-6; 1 Cor. 15; 2 Cor. 4:17, 18; 5:1-4; Rev. 21:22.

WHO IS JESUS?

This is a most important inquiry, because no one can rightly comply with the invitation, “Come to Jesus,” without a correct knowledge of who he is. Much depends on the answer we give to the question, “What think ye of Christ?”

JESUS IS GOD.

Before he appeared on earth, he had from eternity possessed all the perfections of Deity. As the Father is God, so also Jesus is God. This is a great mystery, but it is a great truth. The Bible clearly declares it. He is called “The Word;” and St. John tells us, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made.” And “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.” Speaking of himself, Jesus said, “Before Abraham was, I am.” He referred to the “glory which he had with the Father before the world began;” and declared, “I and the Father are one.” We are told that he is “the brightness of the Father’s glory,” “the image of the invisible God,” “God manifest in the flesh;” that “he is the same yesterday, to-day and for ever;” and that “in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”
Jesus, therefore, is God; and is perfect in power and wisdom and goodness. There is nothing he cannot do; and as he never can change, he will never be unfaithful to his promises. Now, poor sinner, this is just such a Saviour as you want. If you needed a protector from some great danger you would go to some one who was mighty. Who so mighty as Jesus? All that God can do, he can do. There are no difficulties, dangers, or foes he is unable to conquer for you. Whatever your weakness, his strength must be all sufficient. It is not some frail fellow-man, it is not even an angel you are to trust in. It is one infinitely higher than all created beings –even the great God, mighty to save. We should have cause to fear, if any one inferior were our Saviour. But we may feel quite safe when he undertakes to save, who is the Lord of heaven and earth. Who can harm us, if he promises to help us? “If God be for us, who can be against us?”– His power, wisdom, holiness, and goodness, are all employed on our behalf, as soon as we come to Jesus. With such a Saviour we cannot perish. “He is able to save to the UTTERMOST.”

See John 1:1-3, 14; 8:58; 10:30; 17:5; Col. 1:14- 20; 2:9; 1 Tim. 3:16; Heb. 1; 7:23-28; 13:8.

JESUS IS MAN.

This is as true as that he is God. “God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son.” And Jesus, though “equal with God,” “took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men, and was found in fashion as a man.” He was predicted as “a man of sorrows,” and frequently styled himself “the Son of man.” He became man in order to obey the law we had broken, and to suffer the punishment we had merited. Because no one can see God, he lived among us as a man, that from his spirit and conduct we might have a clearer idea of what God is. Thus he said “He that hath seen me, hath seen the Father.” And he became a man that, suffering what we suffer, we might feel sure that he can sympathize with us. Thus we read, “In that he himself hath suffered, being tempted, he is able to succor them that are tempted;” and, “We have not a high-priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are.”
Think, then, of Jesus as a man. Yonder is a funeral. It is a widow’s only son, and she follows the corpse with a broken heart. Who is the man that sees her afar off, pities her, goes up to the dead body, restores it to life, and delivers the son to his mother? That loving but mighty man is Jesus. Who is this standing amid a crowd of little children, and taking them so kindly in his arms to bless them? It is Jesus. Who is that mourner weeping at the grave of Lazarus? It is Jesus. Who is it that all the sick, and the poor, and the sorrowful run after, and who heals and comforts them all, refusing none? It is Jesus. He is still the same; a loving, tender, compassionate man. You need not be afraid of him; he is a man, your brother. It is he who says to you, “Come unto me.” Listen to him, sinner. He is the mighty God, and able to save you; but he is also the “man of sorrows,” and full of sympathy and love. He knows, feels, and pities all your weakness and frailties and fears. He bids you not be afraid. As a brotherman, he stands with looks of unutterable kindness, and says, “come unto me, come unto me.” O treat not with indifference so loving a Friend. Listen to him. Let your heart be touched by his tenderness. Trust in his promises. Come to Jesus at once. Rely on him as your Saviour, and obey him as your King, and he will be to you the “Friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”

Read Isa. 53; Matt. ch. 26, 27; Luke 7:11-15; John 3; 16, 17; Phil. 2:5-11; Heb. 2:17, 18.

HE IS THE SAVIOUR OF SINNERS.

“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Jesus Christ came into the world to SAVE SINNERS”– “Him hath God exalted to be a Prince and a Saviour.” This alone brought him to our wicked world. And how does he save? By standing in our place, and bearing the punishment we merited. We have broken the law, but he has perfectly kept it; for he was holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners.” We deserved death for our sins. “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” But he died for us. “He gave his life a ransom for many.” We were under the curse. “Cursed is every one who continueth not in all things written in the book of the law to do them.” But “he was made a curse for us.” “He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; and by his stripes we are healed.” “He bare our sins in his own body on the tree.” This is why he became a man, was “despised and rejected, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief.” He “carried our sorrows.” This is why he suffered temptation, groaned in Gethsemane, in his agony sweat great drops of blood, was scourged, spit upon, crowned with thorns, and nailed upon the cross. “He gave his life a ransom for many.” We were slaves–he came to set us free. But the price he paid was his own blood. “Redeemed with the precious blood of Christ.” We were prisoners at the bar, condemned to die; but he left his Father’s throne, and came and stood at our side, saying, “I will die for them, that they may be forgiven and live for ever.” And now that he has returned to his glory in heaven, he lives to save us. He watches over us, speaks to us by his word and by his Spirit, listens to our prayers, advocates our cause, helps us in our weakness, and “ever liveth to make intercession for us.” He thus saves us both by his death and his life. He has paid all our debts, and is ready to supply all our wants. He saves those who trust in him from the sting of death, and delivers them from condemnation at the judgment day. We must appear before the Judge as guilty sinners; but if we can use this plea, “I trust in Jesus, who died for me,” he will at once declare us to be fully acquitted, pardoned, saved. He says to thee, reader, “Poor sinner, thou art in danger of hell; but I have brought thee a free pardon, purchased with my own blood. I died for thee. I am able to save thee. Come unto me.”

See Isaiah 53; Acts; 10:34-43; 13:16-41; Rom. 5; Gal. 3:13; 1 Tim. 1:15; Heb. 9:11-28; 1 Pet. 1:18, 19; 2:14.

HE IS THE ONLY SAVIOUR.

Jesus said, “I am the way: no man cometh unto the Father but by ME.” We can only obtain pardon from God by coming to Jesus for it. All God’s mercy for sinners has been placed in the hand of Christ, and no one can obtain it but from him. Some who neglect Jesus, yet hope in God’s mercy. To them God But if they reject Jesus, they reject mercy. To them God will only be an angry Judge, “a consuming fire.” Our own good works cannot save us. Our best actions are sinful; and if they were perfect, they could not atone for the past. St. Paul says, “By the works of the law shall no flesh living be justified.” If we could have entered heaven by our own merits, why should Christ have died? We could have saved ourselves. O trust not in your own works, your good character, your honesty and charity–nothing but the righteousness and death of Jesus can save. Some think because they have been baptized and taken the sacrament, because they read their Bible, keep the Sabbath, and go to church they will be caved. Multitudes have done this, yet, having never come to Jesus, are now in hell. No sacrament, ceremony, creed, or church can save. None but Jesus can. Some rely on their priest. Sad mistake. Poor man, he needs a Saviour for himself. He cannot save his own soul, much less yours. None but Jesus can give absolution. His blood alone cleanseth from sin. Some pray to saints, angels, and the Virgin Mary; but who can tell whether they can listen to any who address them? and if they could can they save the soul? The Bible tells us plainly, “There is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” “Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Look then to no one else. Trust only in Jesus. He is seated on a throne of mercy, and invites all poor sinners to come at once close up to him. He alone has pardon to give. Why then stop to talk to fellow sinners, or even angels, when no being can help you but Jesus? You need no one to introduce you to him. The beggar and the prince, the black man, and the white, the ignorant and the learned, those clothed in rags and those in silk attire, are equally welcome. All are invited. You sin by looking anywhere else for help. He says, “look unto me, and be ye saved, all ye ends of the earth.” Look away from men, away from yourself; look only to Jesus, for he alone can save.

See Acts 4:8-12; Rom. 3:20-28; Gal. 2:16; Phil. 3:9; 1 Tim. 2; 5, 6.

HE IS A LOVING SAVIOUR.

There could be no stronger proof of this than his coming from heaven to suffer and to die. His own words were “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” Why did he leave a holy heaven for a sinful world; the songs of angels for the temptations of devils, a throne of glory for a cross of agony? It was love only, only love. Love, not to friends but to foes. “While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” He showed his tender love in a thousand ways when on earth, going about doing good, healing all manner of sickness, never turning from the poor and the sad, always the “Friend of sinners.” How he wept over Jerusalem, as he thought of her sins and approaching sufferings. When in the agonies of death, how kindly he spoke to the penitent thief at his side; and how earnestly he prayed for his mocking murderers: “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” He might easily have called forth an army of angels to deliver him; but if he had not died, we could not have been saved: and therefore, because he loved us, he drank the bitter cup to its very dregs. Now that he has risen again, his love to sinners is as great as ever. Love prompts him to intercede for us, to pity us, to send his Spirit to help us, to wait to be gracious, and saves us. He loves you; he died for you; he looks down with pity on you; he calls you to come to him. His love has spared you till now, though you have rejected him. His love bears with your sins, and again at this moment entreats you to accept a pardon purchased by his blood. If some friend had spent his fortune to deliver you from prison, or risked his life to save yours, could you treat him with neglect? But Jesus has done far more. He died to redeem you from eternal woe, and make you happy for ever in heaven. He comes to you, and showing the marks of his wounds, he says, “See how I loved thee, sinner. I love thee still. Come unto me, that I may save thee from sin and from hell.” O reject not so gracious a Saviour. Trample not under feet such wonderful love. You will never meet with such another Friend. Trust him. Love him. You will always find him full of pity and tenderness. He will comfort, guide, protect, and save you amid all the dangers and sorrows of life, deliver you from the sting of death, and then make you happy for ever in heaven. O come to this loving Saviour.

See Luke 19:41-44; 23:33-43; John 10:1-30; 15:12-15; Rom. 5:6-8; Eph 3:17-19.

HE WILL BE OUR JUDGE.

“We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ.” The man of sorrows will come again as the God of glory, and “before him will be gathered all nations.” “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also who pierced him.” How encouraging to believers. He is the very person they would have chosen for themselves, and when they see him on the throne they will rejoice, for their best Friend, who has promised to save them, will be their Judge, and therefore they will feel secure. But how dreadful for those who have rejected him. How terrible his look of reproach to those who pierced him by their sinful neglect. How dreadful to hear the voice which now says, “Come unto me,” say, “Depart, ye cursed.” Suppose a prisoner is soon to be tried for a crime for which he will lose his life. He is visited by a man of humble appearance, but great kindness, whose heart seems to overflow with pity for the prisoner. He has been laboring very hard for the culprit’s escape at the trial. He tells him what he has done, and proves that he may be safely trusted. He assures him that he is quite able to secure his acquittal or his pardon, if only the prisoner is willing he should do so. He says, “I pray you let me come forward at the trial, and speak on your behalf. Let me plead your cause. I have saved many a prisoner whose case was as bad as yours; I can save you. I ask no payment. Love alone prompts me. Consent to let me help you.” But the prisoner is reading, talking, or sleeping, and takes no notice of this friend. He comes again and again; but the prisoner dislikes his visits, and by his actions asks him not to come and disturb him. The trial comes on. The prisoner is brought into court. He looks at the judge in his robes of office; and sees he is the despised friend who came to him in his cell. But now his countenance is solemn and his voice severe. He who was refused as a friend now appears only as a judge. Sinner, he who as a judge will occupy the throne at the last day, comes to thee in thy prison, and offers to be thy Saviour. He is willing to plead thy cause, and promises thee a free and full deliverance at the trial. Refuse him not, for soon you must stand at his bar. Trust in him as your Advocate, if you would not tremble before him as your judge. Accept his invitation, if you would not hear him pronounce your doom. Welcome him now to your heart, that he may welcome you then to his kingdom.

See Matt. 25:31-46; 2 Cor. 5:10; 1 Thess. 4:16-18; Rev. 1:7.

WHERE IS JESUS.

It was the language of Job, “O that I knew where I might find him, that I might come even to his seat!” Is this thy language, poor sinner? Art thou anxious to know where to find Jesus? He is no longer on earth in human form, but has returned to heaven. There you may find him, seated on a throne of mercy, waiting to give eternal life to all who come to him. You may think it far to go, but the prayers of sinners reach heaven the very moment they are uttered, and are listened to by Jesus with kind attention. Yet if this seems hard to understand, know assuredly that Jesus is not only in heaven, but on earth too. He is God, and therefore is everywhere. He said to his disciples, “I am with you always.” He is constantly present among us. In the sick chamber there is Jesus, ready to comfort the afflicted disciple who lies on that bed of pain. In the secret spot to which the sinner has retired to confess his sins, there is Jesus waiting to say, “Be of good cheer; thy sins are forgiven thee: go in peace.” In the church or the room where many or few have assembled to praise and pray, there is Jesus waiting to supply their wants. “Wheresoever two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Reader, he is near thee. Now, while thine eye reads this page, he stands close at thy side. He whispers in thine ear. He invites thee to seek him. If anxious to find him, thou hast no long journey to take, no long time to wait before thy request can reach his ear. He is nearer than the friend sitting beside thee, for he is at thy heart’s door, knocking for entrance. Wherever thou goest he follows thee, his hands laden with blessings, which he offers to thee freely. He compasses thy path, and thy lying down; but it is always to do thee good. In the morning he stands at thy bedside, offering to clothe thee with his white robe of righteousness; and when thou art seated at the table, he asks thee to eat that bread of life which will save thy soul from death. He is so near that he will notice thy first faint effort to come to him, and will stretch out his hand to help thee. He is so near that he will see thy first tear of penitence, and catch thy first sigh for pardon. He is so near that before you call he will answer, and while you are yet speaking he will hear. Sinner, where-ever you are, there is Jesus. So that in all countries, under all circumstances, by day and by night, at home and abroad you may come to Jesus.

See Psalm 139; Isaiah 65:24; Matt. 18:20; 28:20; John 14:18-23.

WHAT IS MEANT BY COMING TO JESUS.”

“Much is said of coming to Jesus, but how can I come? He is in heaven, and how can I go there to speak to him? I am told he is also everywhere, but I cannot see him, and how can I go to him? If he were but on earth as he once was, there is no trouble I would not take. I would sell all I possess to pay for my journey; I would travel hundreds of miles. No difficulties should daunt me. I would set off at once. I would go to him and push my way through the crowd, as the sick used to do, in order to be healed. I would fall down before him, and lay hold of his garment, or embrace his feet; and I would say, ‘Lord Jesus, save me. I came not to be healed of blindness or lameness, or leprosy, but of sin. My heart is diseased with iniquity. I am in danger of God’s wrath, and of eternal damnation. Lord, save me, I perish.’ But alas, Jesus is no longer among us, and I cannot understand what is meant by coming to him.” Dear reader, do all this in thy heart, and then you will come to Jesus. What do you think would be the advantage of going to him, and falling before him, and holding his garment, and speaking to him as the sick and the lame used to do? Would it not be to let him know your wants? These he knows already. Without all this trouble, you can make him understand that you wish him to save you. Think of him, let your heart feel respecting him, and let your cries ascend to him, just as if you saw him. Be as earnest as if there was a crowd round him which you wished to push through. Call to him as that blind mandid, who, though he saw him not, cried out, “Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me!” You are better off than they who lived when he dwelt on earth. They had often to journey far. They sometimes could not get near him for the press of people. But you may have him as much to yourself as if there were no other sinner that needed him. He is always near and within call; and though you cannot see him, he sees you, knows all you feel, and hears all you say. Coming to Jesus is the desire of the heart after him. It is to feel our sin and misery; to believe that he is able and willing to pardon, comfort, and save us; to ask him to help us, and to trust in him as our Friend. To have just the same feelings and desires as if he were visibly present, and we came and implored him to bless us, is to come to him, though we do not see his face nor hear his voice. Repenting sinner, your very desire for pardon, your prayer, “Jesus, save me”– this is coming to him.

COME BY PRAYER.

Though you cannot see Jesus, you can speak to him. You can pray. God has permitted, and even commanded us to do this. How great a privilege to be allowed to speak to God. “Call upon me in the day of trouble.” “Watch and pray.” “Pray without ceasing.” Prayer requires no fine, well-arranged sentences. The simplest utterance of your heart’s desire is prayer. Those desires, themselves, unbreathed, are prayer. You need not wait until you can enter a church to pray; you may pray everywhere. And Jesus is always waiting for the prayers of poor sinners; so that not one ever escapes his notice. His ear is always open. It is difficult to speak to kings and princes: they can only be seen sometimes, and then only a few persons are permitted to come near them. But all may come with their petitions to Jesus, however poor and despised, and at all times too. Whatever good things you want for the soul, pray. For pardon, for a new heart, for faith, for holiness, for comfort, pray. You cannot pray in vain. You may be sure of such prayers being answered. There are some things which even God cannot do. He cannot sin, and he cannot refuse to listen to a poor sinner’s prayer, for he has promised. “Ask, and it shall be given you,” said Jesus: and his word declares, “He cannot deny himself.” Be then encouraged to pray. However vile and helpless you think you are, you are not too bad to pray. Pray, if you can only utter such a petition as this, “Save, Lord, or I perish!” Make a habit of prayer. Find some place where you can be alone. “When thou prayest, enter into the closet, and shut the door.” Rise before the work of the day begins, that you may have time to pray. Lay open your heart before God. Tell him how vile, and helpless, and wretched you are. Confess your sins, and cry for pardon. Read the Bible, and ask for that holiness which is commended there. Say, “Lord, I am ignorant, teach me. My heart is hard, soften it. Convert me by thy Holy Spirit. Help me to come to Jesus–to believe, love, and obey him. Save me from sin, and fit me for heaven!” And let your heart throughout the day often ascend to God, even while engaged in your necessary labor. “Pray without ceasing.” If the answer does not seem to come at once, pray on, and success is certain. A praying soul can never be lost. You cannot perish while you are sincerely calling upon Jesus, saying, “Lord, have mercy upon me a sinner.”

See Ps. 55:17; 65:2; 102:17; Matt. 6:5, 6; Luke 18:1-14; Acts 10:9; Phil. 4:6; 1 Thess. 5:17.

COME IN THE BOLDNESS OF PRAYER.

It is wonderful that creatures so sinful as we are, should be allowed to pray at all. When we consider what we are, and what God is, we may well tremble when we come to him, and fear lest he should reject us. But he has encouraged us to come, even with “boldness, to the throne of grace.” This does not mean that we are to come without deep reverence and humility, but that we are to pray with a full persuasion that God will answer us. There are many examples of answers to prayer. Hezekiah prayed, and the army of Sennacherib was smitten with death. Elijah prayed, and fire came down to consume his sacrifice. The apostles prayed, and the Holy Ghost descended upon them with miraculous gifts. The church prayed, and Peter was delivered from prison by an angel. We are not to expect that all we ask for respecting this life will be given us, for we often desire what would do us harm. We may be sure, however, that God will give us what is best. But when we pray for blessings for our souls– for pardon, and holiness, and salvation–we may be quite certain of being answered; for we are told, that if we ask anything according to God’s will, he heareth us; and we are also told, that God is “willing that all men should be saved.” Jesus said, “Ask, and it shall be given;” and, “Whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do.” He prays for us. Our best prayers are far too unworthy for God to notice, but he listens because Jesus pleads. lf you wrote a petition to a king, but none at the palace knew you, and you were dressed in rags, and after doing your best, the writing was covered with blots, would you not fear that you would never be admitted, or if you were, that the petition would not be read? But suppose the king’s son were to come, and say, “I will present your petition myself, and ask my father to grant it.” Jesus does this. He presents our feeble prayers, and says, “For my sake, bless this poor sinner, and grant his request.” And we are told that “him the Father heareth always.” “He ever liveth to make intercession.” Trembling, mourning sinner, rejoice. You have a friend at court. However unworthy your petitions are, Jesus prays for you, and his prayers always prevail. What more can you need to encourage you? Come then with “boldness to the throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

See 1 Kings 18:21-39; 2 Kings 19; Matt. 7:7-11; John 14:13, 14; 17; Acts 1:13, 14; 2:1-4; 12:5-17; Heb. 4:14-16; 7:25; 1 John 5:14.

COME IN FAITH.

In the New Testament we read very much about faith. We are said to be “justified by faith,” and “saved by faith,” and are told to “believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, that we may be saved.” Faith is confidence, reliance. If I am hungry, and a kind friend offers me something and says it is bread, but it is dark, and I cannot see, yet, if I begin at once to eat it, this is faith. I trust in his word. If I am sick, and medicine is given me which I am told will do me good, and I drink it, this is faith. I believe or have confidence in the doctor’s skill. Jesus came into the world to die for sinners. He says, “Believe in me. I have purchased a full pardon for you, and you may go free. It cost my own blood to obtain it, but you are freely welcome to it. If you will obey my words, and trust in my protection, I will engage to save you from death and hell: I am quite able to do this. Here is bread to eat, which will make you live for ever if you eat it; here is a medicine which will cure your soul’s sickness that you shall never die. Come unto me–believe in me, and you shall be saved.” Faith is just trusting to what Jesus says. Faith is simply coming to Jesus. He has died for thee. Believe it, and take the benefit of his dying. He has opened the prison door for thee. Believe it, and make thine escape. He is willing to bear thy burden for thee. Believe it, and cast thy sins upon him. He has paid all thy debts. Rejoice. He brings salvation to thee, and says, “It shall be thine, if thou are willing.” Stretch forth thy hand, take it with a grateful heart. Like the prodigal in the parable, thou hast wandered far from home; but Jesus has obtained for thee permission to return. Thy Father, for his sake, is willing to welcome thee back. Believe it, and say, “I will arise and go to my Father.” You desire to be trusted by your husband, or wife, or children; you would feel hurt by their doubting your word. So Jesus wishes to be believed when he says, “Poor sinner, I am able and willing to save thee. Come unto me.” Do not grieve him by distrusting his word. If you do not come because you think you are too great a sinner, you say, in effect, that he is not able to save you, though he tells us, “he is able to save to the uttermost ALL who come.” You make him a liar. Believe that he really will do what he promises. Go to him at once. Say to him, “Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. Thou art able to save to the uttermost–save me.”

See John 3:14-48; Acts 16:30, 31; Rom. 5:1; Heb. 11.

COME AS A SINNER–JUST AS YOU ARE.

Perhaps you say, “How can I, who am so vile a sinner, venture to come near the holy Jesus? Will he permit such a wretch to approach him? Must I not wait till I am more fit?” Dear fellow-sinner, your very sinfulness is your best fitness. What you think to be a hinderance is your best encouragement; for, “Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners,” and therefore to save such as you. “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Not that there are any who are really righteous, but there are many who think themselves so, and such persons will never be received by Christ. We must come to him in our true character, if we come at all. We are great sinners. We have broken God’s laws. We have indulged in wickedness in our hearts, as well as in open conduct; we have quenched the Spirit, and despised the love of Jesus. Everything we do is full of imperfection. We cannot make ourselves pure. And if we come to Jesus pretending we are righteous, we only mock him. Instead of thinking we are “rich, and increased in goods, and have need of nothing,” we must come as those who are “poor, and miserable, and blind, and naked.” Thus we must come to Jesus, and confess our unworthiness. In one of his parables he spoke of a self-righteous man, who thanked God that he was better than others; and of a broken-hearted penitent, who did not venture to raise his eyes to heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, “God be merciful to me a sinner!” It was the latter who went home pardoned and saved. And if we would be accepted by Jesus, we must go to him in the same spirit, saying, “God be merciful to me a sinner!” And we must not wait, thinking that we shall ever be more worthy. No, our souls are stained through and through with sin, and all our washing will never get rid of one dark spot. The blood of Christ alone can make us clean. We can never make ourselves better. We must come to Jesus to make us better; and till then nothing is done. Our very first duty is to come to Jesus. Come then, poor sinner. Wait not another moment, foolishly thinking you will be more fit by and by. You will never be more fit, and never more welcome, than at this moment. Jesus knows, far better than even you do, how sinful and vile you are; yet he does not say, “Wait,” but “Come.” Come then, with all your sins and weakness, and hardness of heart, come to Jesus. Come as a sinner, and come just as you are.

See Psalm 51; Matt. 9:10-13; Luke 18:9-14; 1 Tim. 1:15; Rev. 3:17, 18.

BUT I AM NOT WORTHY, AND CANNOT COME ARIGHT.”

If you imagine that any sinner is worthy of salvation, you quite mistake the nature of the gospel. It is a free gift, not a reward. No one is worthy. Paul, Peter, John were not worthy. But Jesus is so full of love that, unworthy as we all are, he invites us to come. If he makes our sin no objection, why should we? Jesus knows that filthy rags cover you, that a nauseous disease infects you; yet he says, “Come unto me.” On account of these very things, he says, Come. How unreasonable, then, for you to refuse because you are unworthy. You might as well say you were too hungry to eat, or too poor to receive help, as that you are too unworthy to come for pardon. Your very unworthiness makes you welcome. But you say you cannot come as you ought. Then come as you can. Jesus did not say, “Come unto me running or walking upright,” but simply, “Come.” Come in any manner, and you will be received. Come creeping, crawling–any way–only come. You say you do not repent enough. You never will; for penitence, like all other graces, is ever growing, and no one’s penitence can equal his sins. But we are not saved because we repent enough, but, if we do repent at all, we are saved because Jesus died. You say you have not love enough. You never will have, till you get to heaven. But we are saved, not because we love God, but because he loves us. You say you have not faith enough. True, and every Christian needs to pray, “Lord, increase my faith.” But if you truly look to Jesus for salvation, this is faith; and though very weak, none who possess it can perish. But perhaps you say your heart is totally hard, and therefore that your mere cries of distress are not prayers which God can accept. Be encouraged by the case of Simon Magus. “His heart was not right in the sight of God;” he was “in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity;” yet Peter said, “Pray God, if perhaps the thought of thy heart may be forgiven thee,” which means, “If you indeed pray to God, your sins will be forgiven.” Your condition cannot be worse than his; yet he was encouraged to come to Jesus. Come with a broken heart, he may heal it; or as Leighton says, ” If thou find it unbroken, yet give it him, with a desire that it may be broken.” However unable to come aright, make the effort: come as you can, only come; and Jesus will not, cannot reject you.

See Isa, 1:1-18; Acts 2:22, 23, 36-42; 3:13-19, 26; 8:18 -23; Rev. 22:17.

“BUT I FEAR I AM NOT ONE OF THE ELECT.”

You have no cause for this fear but your own fancy. Has God, or an angel, or the Bible told you so? Election, whatever it means, is God’s work, not yours. Do not perplex yourself with his secret counsels, but attend to your own plain duties. “Secret things belong unto God; but those which are revealed belong unto us, that we may do all the words of this law.” We must leave the secret things, and attend to the revealed. Our duty is to do according to God’s law. And this law is most clear. You are nowhere told you are not elect; but you are told that Jesus died for you, and you are invited to come to him. Vex your mind, then, no longer about such difficult subjects as election, but promptly obey what God commands. He says,” Cast away from you all your transgressions, and make you a new heart and a new spirit. Turn ye from your evil ways. Repent, and believe the gospel. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out.” Do what God says, and your salvation will be sure. Suppose you were very poor, and a rich man were to announce that he would give a pound to a hundred persons whose names no one knew but himself, but at the same time promised that he would give it to every one who applied for it; would you say, “I am afraid I am not among the favored number, therefore I will not ask for the money?” No; you would rather say, “Whether I am among the hundred or not, every one is invited, and therefore I will go.” Do the same respecting eternal life. Do not sit still, teasing yourself with useless inquiries whether your name is in God’s book. Are you a sinner? “Oh yes.” Well, then you are invited; for “Jesus came to save sinners,” and ” he is the propitiation for the sins of the whole world.” The invitation is universal. “Whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Jesus said not, “Come unto me, ye whose names are in the book of life,” but, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden.” Are you heavy laden with sin? Then come to Jesus and your salvation is certain. Come to Jesus, and then you may be sure your name will be found in the book of life. Come to Jesus, and you will be received as one of the elect; but if you stay away, you will perish.

See Deut. 29:29; Ezek. 18:31; Joel 2:12, 13; Mark 1:15; 1 John 2:2.

“BUT I HAVE NO FAITH.”

“I do not feel my sins forgiven, and I am not sure I am saved. Many say they know the time when they found salvation, and that they have an inward witness that all is right with them. They have found peace; but I have not. I am full of doubts and fears, have no faith, and therefore fear Jesus will never receive me.” My friend, you confound two things which greatly differ, faith and assurance. You have been speaking of assurance, not of faith. It is very delightful to feel sure of pardon and heaven; but it is quite possible not to feel this, and yet to possess faith. Faith is coming to Jesus as a poor sinner, and trusting to him alone for salvation. Assurance is feeling certain we are saved. They are quite different things. Faith is necessary for salvation, but assurance is not. Many people possess an assurance which is false, while they are destitute of faith; and many also have true faith, but do not enjoy assurance. Suppose you were shipwrecked, and clinging to a part of the vessel over which the waves were furiously breaking. A life-boat comes out to you. It is so well built that it cannot possibly sink. The rowers are so skillful that they never failed to bring it safe to shore. They invite you to enter. You know that the vessel you cling to will soon be dashed to pieces. You believe the boat will take you safe to shore. You enter it. But when the huge waves toss it up and down, and seem about to overwhelm it, you are afraid, and perhaps do not lose your fear till you reach the shore. Getting into the boat was faith–being afraid while in it was the want of assurance. But though frightened, you were as safe as the rowers who had no fears. Your terrors did not endanger your safety, though it destroyed your peace. We are in a storm. Our sins have raised up the winds and waves of divine justice. The law thunders it curses against us. Hell yawns below. Jesus is like the life-boat. He comes out to us and invites us to forsake all our own refuges, which are as frail as a sinking wreck, and to cast ourselves on him. Trusting in him alone is faith, though when you think of your sins and infirmities you may be full of doubts and fears, and often think you are not safe. Take encouragement then, trembling sinner. Do you feel yourself lost without Jesus; and is it your earnest prayer, “Save, Lord, or I perish?” Then, whatever your gloomy doubts, you do possess faith, saving faith–that faith of which Paul spoke when he said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.” None can perish who thus come to Jesus.

YE WHO ARE YOUNG COME.

Youthful reader, be persuaded to give your early years to God. There is a special promise for you: “Those that seek me early shall find me.” Perhaps you think, “I am too young to be religious yet; let me enjoy the world a little; I have plenty of time before me.” Too young to be religious? But you are not too young to sin, or too young to die, or too young to be cast into hell. You may not live to reach manhood, much less old age. Multitudes die as young as you. If you enter a burial-ground, how many of the graves are those of young people. Death may be even now preparing to strike you. Oh then come at once to Jesus. You greatly err, if you think religion will make you gloomy. It alone can render you truly happy. Many young people have tried it, who will all tell you that the pleasures of piety are far better than all the delights of sin and vanity. You will find that this is true, if you come to Jesus. It is likely he will let his followers be less happy than the servants of the world? Besides, how can you dare to live a day longer rejecting him? He commands us at once to believe and obey him. Every day we put off repentance we commit a fresh act of rebellion, and treasure up wrath against the day of wrath. You say you will repent when you are old. But we need the Spirit of God to help us to repent; and if you say, “While I am young I will serve Satan, and not till I am near death will I turn to God,” do you think God will give you his Holy Spirit at all? Is not this to quench the Spirit? May you not become quite careless, and indisposed to repent? Very few are converted when old. If you come not to Jesus when you are young, it is not likely you will come at all. Habit will fasten strong chains around you, which will be harder to burst asunder every day. While you wait, Satan works. He is busy tying knots. You are his prisoner; and he is making the cords which bind you more and more secure. Whenever you sin he ties another knot. Every impression you smother, every hour you delay, adds a fresh knot. If you do not escape now, how can you expect to break loose when you are weaker, and your fetters stronger? Oh then, “Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth.” Come at once to Jesus, if you wish to come at all. He will be your guide amid the snares, your comfort amid the sorrows, your guardian amid the dangers of life. Lose not for one day the privilege of possessing such a friend. Say from this moment, “My Father, thou art the guide of my youth.”

Prov. 3:1-24; 4; 8:17; Eccles. 12:1.

YE WHO ARE ADVANCING IN YEARS, AND YE WHO ARE AGED, COME.

With you the morning of life is over. You have reached the mountain top, or are traveling down the valley on the other side. You are rapidly drawing nearer the tomb. Perhaps you are still busily occupied in the necessary labors of life; or inclination and the love of gain may involve you in many engrossing cares. But forget not the “one thing needful.” We can do without any thing else, even life itself; but we cannot do without Jesus. The salvation of the soul is the one thing needful. You have been busy for many years in the concerns of this life, but as yet have found no time for religion. Your chief business is not even begun. But what trifles are all things else in comparison. In a few years it will be of no consequence whether we were rich or poor; but it will be of infinite consequence whether we come to Jesus or not. Multitudes have died around you. Neighbors and friends, many with whom you were at school, or started in life, are in their graves. You have been spared. But you might have been cut down as a barren tree–unprepared. God’s forbearance may be almost spent. Soon the sentence may be pronounced, “Cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?” Perhaps you are advanced in years. My aged friend, how many solemn warnings did you prepare. Your wrinkled features, whitening hair, decaying strength, loudly tell you that the end is near. You are tottering on the edge of the grave. The young may live many years, but you cannot. Soon, very soon, you must die. Oh, how dreadful to stand before the judgment-seat of Christ, and give an account of a long life spent in rejecting him–of thousands of Sabbaths and sermons and privileges neglected. O then come to Jesus now. Lose not a moment. You have not one to spare. You have indeed hardened your heart, and made repentance more difficult by neglecting religion so long; but if you earnestly implore the help of God’s Holy Spirit, he will grant your petition even now. It is not too late. Though you have so long refused to listen to him, Jesus has not ceased to speak to you. Still he says, “Come unto me.” He loves you still. He is waiting to save you still. Oh, trifle with him no longer. Look back. Death comes striding after you with rapid steps; he is very near. Judgment is close behind, and hell follows. They are on the point of seizing you. Flee this moment to Christ. Come to Jesus. He alone can save.

See Matt. 6 :19-24; Luke 10: 40-42; 13:6-9.

BACKSLIDER, COME.

YOURS is a peculiar case; for you have already come to Jesus, but have wandered from him. You have been near, but now you are afar off. Your sin is very great. You have experienced something of the love of Christ, yet have forsaken him. You have enjoyed clearer light and greater advantages than those who have never known what religion is. You have been admitted within the fold, and tasted the sweet pasture with which the good Shepherd feeds his flock, yet you have strayed from the sacred enclosure. Your declension began perhaps in secret, by restraining prayer, and neglecting God’s word. Or you yielded to some temptation, but did not go to Christ for pardon, and so you became gradually careless. You may still maintain an outward profession of piety, but your heart is not right in the sight of God. Perhaps you have plunged into worldly dissipations, and are an example of the saying, “If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” Perhaps even worse, you have fallen into open sin, and brought public disgrace on the name of Christian. You have lost all those opportunities of doing good which, had you not been a backslider, you would have improved. Thus you have robbed God. You have discouraged other professors by your coldness and inconsistency, and been a hinderance to many who were inquiring, “What must I do to be saved?” Instead of being a blessing to others, you have been a curse. And what is more you have grieved the Holy Spirit, have crucified the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. Yet Jesus, the kind Shepherd whose fold you have left, is willing to welcome you back. He seeks the sheep that have gone eastray. He says, “O Israel return unto the Lord thy God. Say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously. I will heal their backslidings, I will love them freely; for mine anger is turned away. Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backsliding, for I am merciful. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God. Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord!”

Consider these kind words. Ponder well the parable of the prodigal son. What greater encouragement can you need? Though you have wandered from Jesus, you may come to him again. He is as willing to receive you as at first. Stop, then, in your backward career. Return unto the Lord; for “why will ye die?”

See Psalm 119:176, Jer. 3:12-14, 22; Hosea 14; 1-4: Luke 15.

DESPAIRING SINNER, COME.

PERHAPS you say, “The mercy of God is for others, not for me. I have been too vile. I have abused the greatest privileges, and stifled the strongest convictions. I have fought against God, and committed crimes I shudder to think of. There can be no pardon for me.” Listen, sinner: God says, “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow.” “As I live, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that he turn and live. Turn ye, turn ye: for why will ye die?” Listen, sinner: “The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin.” ALL sin, and therefore yours. Listen: “He is able to save to the uttermost ALL who come unto God by him.” And therefore YOU. Listen: “Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am CHIEF.” He saves the chief of sinners, and therefore can save you. David, who had committed murder–Peter, who denied him–the thief on the cross–thousands who cried, “Crucify him”–Paul the persecutor–were all saved. And He who saved them is able to save you. Do you fear you have committed the unpardonable sin? Your anxiety is a sure proof you have not committed it. Whatever that sin is, it is certain that if any one were to commit it, he would never feel any true penitence for it. For the Bible in every page tells us, that all who repent shall be forgiven, that all who seek mercy shall find it; and Jesus says, “Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out,” that is, on no account whatever. So that we may be quite sure that no penitent sinner who comes to Jesus for pardon, has committed sins which cannot be forgiven. God is bound by his promise and oath to “abundantly pardon” every sinner who comes to Jesus for salvation; but still you may say, “I am a lost sinner.” A brother of the celebrated Whitefield was at tea with Lady Huntington, who endeavored to cheer his despairing soul by speaking of the infinite mercy of Christ. “My lady,” said he, “it is true; I see it clearly: but there is no mercy for me; I am a wretch entirely lost.” “I am glad to hear it, glad at my heart that you are a lost man,” was her reply. “What, my lady; glad that I am a lost man?” “Yes, Mr. Whitefield, truly glad, for Jesus Christ came into the world to save the lost.” That word cheered his soul. He believed in Jesus, and soon after died in peace. Sinner, rejoice; Jesus came to save the lost–to save thee.

See Isa. 1:18; Ezek. 18:30-32; 33:11; Luke 19:10; John 6:37; 1 Tim. 1:15; Heb. 7:25; 1 John 1:7.

CARELESS SINNER, COME.

WHAT, a rebel against God–hastening now towards death–doomed to hell–yet careless? Reader, are you one of those who are so busy with the trifles of this world as to pay no attention to the eternal realities of the next? Listen to the startling question of Jesus. Ponder it. “What shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Suppose you saw a crowd walking along a meadow, at the end of which was a terrific precipice. They pass on merrily, plucking flowers, till, as they reach the edge, one after another falls over, and is dashed to pieces. Would you not call to them, “Stop, stop! as you value your lives, turn back?” You are strolling onwards to a far more terrible fate. Yawning beneath you is the lake of fire–and do you still go forward? Jesus calls to you, “Turn ye, turn ye; why will ye die?” But you see not the danger. You feel happy, and hope it will be all right with you hereafter. Have you never seen how smooth the stream is just before it leaps down the cataract? Such is your peace, soon to be broken by a fatal plunge into endless woe. Many poisons are pleasant to the taste, and soothe those who drink into sweet slumbers, but from these slumbers they never awake. You are quaffing Satan’s cup of death. What you think pleasant drink is deadly poison; and your unconcern about religion is the sign how dreadfully it is operating on your soul. Beware, lest you wake up in the flames of hell. Before it is too late shake off this lethargy. Your house is on fire; the roof will soon fall in and crush you. But you sit at ease, amused with trifles, and neglecting every warning. Many cry “fire, fire–fly for your life.” But you pay no attention to the alarm. Jesus offers himself as a refuge, but in vain. Yet, though you regard it not, you are in danger. In danger you draw every breath. Danger is your traveling companion when you journey, and danger haunts your home. Danger hovers over you during the bustle of the day, and danger peeps between your curtains amid the silence of night. You may be prosperous, beloved, flattered, and thoughtless; but you are in danger. You may drown reflection in business, or by plunging deeper and deeper into worldly dissipation and sin; but you are in danger–in danger of wrath, death, hell. Oh flee to Jesus. There only we are safe. Escape by the door of salvation, while it is yet open; for it will soon be shut, and then you will knock in vain.

See Eccles. 11:9; Ezek. 3:17-19; 33:1-19; Mark 8:34-38; Luke 12:16-21; 2 Pet. 3:1-12.

COME NOW: IT WILL BE HARDER WORK TO-MORROW.

Perhaps you think it will be as easy to repent at any future time as to-day. This is a most dangerous delusion. Impressions of all kinds wear away by repetition, unless they are made permanent by being acted upon. If you ever lived near a noisy mill, a roaring river, or the sea, you have found that the sound, which at first disturbed you, was afterwards scarcely noticed. Just so the truths of religion may deeply impress the mind; but if those impressions are not cherished, by acting in accordance with them, those truths will effect the mind less and less, till they are heard with total indifference. Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.” He knocks by sermons, books, conversations, conscience, solemn warnings. The sound startles you; but if you do not rise and open the door, it will startle you less to-morrow, till at length you will not hear it at all. How many who once felt deeply about religion, now feel nothing, and are quickly and quietly traveling down to hell. On the narrow ledges of the steep cliffs of the Yorkshire coast multitudes of sea fowl lay their eggs, by gathering which, some persons obtain a perilous livelihood. It once happened that a man, having fixed in the ground his iron bar, and having lowered himself down by the rope which was fastened to it, found, that, in consequence of the edge of the cliff bending over the part below, he could not reach the narrow ledge where the eggs were deposited, without swinging himself backwards and forwards. By this means he at last placed his foot on the rock, but in so doing lost his hold of the rope. His situation was most dreadful. The sea roared hundreds of feet below. It was impossible to climb either up or down. He must soon perish from want, or fall, and be dashed to pieces on the rocks. The rope was his only way of escape. It was still swinging to and fro; but when it settled it would be out of reach. Every time it approached him it was farther off than before. Every moment he waited his danger increased. He made up his mind. The next time the rope swung towards him he sprang forward, seized it, and reached the top in safety. Sinner, your salvation is farther off every moment you wait. Hell is below. Death will soon cast you down. But Jesus is near to save you. He invites you to lay hold on him. It is your only hope. Grasp him by faith. You cannot miss your hold. He will bold you and draw you up to heaven. But the difficulty and danger are greater every moment you delay. Come to Jesus now.

COME NOW: TO-MORROW MAY BE TOO LATE.

You have perhaps decided to come to Jesus, but not just now. Like Felix, you say, “Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.” Satan knows that if you put religion off, he is likely to keep you captive for ever. God says, “TO-DAY if you will hear my voice, harden not your hearts: behold NOW is the day of salvation.” Satan whispers, “not to-day, but, to-morrow.” He promises you shall give to God all your future days, if only he can secure for himself the present. Oh, beware of to-morrow. Souls are generally lost, not because they resolve never to repent, but because they defer it till some future time, and still defer it till it is too late. To-morrows have crowded hell. Perhaps you think you will wait till disease assails you. But a sick bed is the very worst place for repenting. Your mind may be so distracted by delirium, fever, or pain, or may so share in the weakness of the body, as to be unable to think. The peace in which multitudes seem to die is only the apathy of disease. Many, who, when ill, have professed to repent, on recovery have become more careless than before. It was not true conversion; and had they died they would have been lost. There is little hope of salvation in sickness. But such a season may never come. You may die without a moment’s warning. Though in health to-day, you may be dead to-morrow. And are you, when life is so uncertain, putting off salvation? A prisoner is under sentence of death. He knows not the fatal hour, but is told, that if before it strikes he petitions the governor, his life will be spared. He says, “I’ll send tomorrow.” And when to-morrow comes again, “Oh, there’s time enough yet; I’ll wait a little longer.” Suddenly his door opens, and–behold the sheriff and the executor! “Oh, wait, and I’ll write the petition.’ “No,” they say, “the clock has struck–its too late–you must die.” Poor sinner, you are condemned. You know not when you may die. It may be this very day. You put off repentance till to-morrow; but to-morrow you may be in hell. Christ knocks to-day; but remember death may knock to-morrow. Though you keep your best Friend outside, death will burst in, and hurry you away to the judge. Come to Jesus to-day. He is willing to save to-day. Heaven’s gate is open to-day. Tomorrow may be too late.

Read Matt. 24:36-51; 25:1-13; Luke 12:16- 21; 13; 24-28; Acts 24:25; 2 Cor. 6:1, 2; Heb. 3:7-11.

YOU MUST PERISH IF YOU DO NOT COME.

“What must I do to be saved?” “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.” “What must I do to be lost?” “Neglect so great salvation.” It is not necessary to do any thing. We are lost already. Jesus offers to save us; but if we reject his offer, we remain as we are. If a man were bitten by a deadly serpent, but refused to apply the only remedy, he must die. The gospel is the only cure for the soul; and if we neglect it, sin kills us. You need not be a thief or a murderer to lose your soul. You may conform to all the outward ordinances of religion, but if you come not to Jesus, you are lost. Consider the solemn words, “How shall we escape, if we NEGLECT so great salvation?” Escape is impossible, if we neglect the only means of safety. A boat is drawn by the current of the river near to the foaming cataract, where it must perish; but there is one solitary projecting rock near which it passes, where some men are waiting with a rope. Suppose the crew neglect to catch it–how can they escape? Neglect is their ruin. Jesus alone can save the soul. “Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Oh, sinner, your damnation is sure, if you reject Jesus. And how great will be your guilt and punishment! There remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.– “He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy; of how much sore punishment shalt he be thought worthy who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of Grace?” What delusion has seized thee? Dost thou think God will not execute his threatenings, that thou will escape his piercing eye, or the rocks will cover thee? Vain hopes. There is no escape but by coming to Jesus, and simple neglect is certain perdition. “Because I called, but ye refused, I also will laugh at your calamity, I will mock when your fear cometh. Then shall they call, but I will not answer; they shall seek me, but shall not find me; for they did not chose the fear of the Lord, and despised all my reproof.” O sinner, escape this awful threatening. Jesus now stands with open arms. He entreats you to come and be saved. Refuse his grace no longer. Come with all your sins and sorrows–come just as you are–come at once. He will in no wise cast you out. Come to Jesus. Come to Jesus.

See Prov. 1:24-31; John 3:14-21, 36; Acts 4:12; Heb. 2:1-3; 10:26-31.

I WILL COME TO JESUS
Just as I am, without one plea
But that thy blood was shed for me.
And that thou bidst me come to thee,
O Lamb of God, I come!

Just as I am, and waiting not,
To rid my soul of one dark blot–
To thee whose blood can cleanse each spot.
O Lamb of God, I come!

Just as I am–poor, wretched blind–
Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
Yes, all I need, in thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come!

Just as I am–though tossed about;
With many a conflict, many a doubt,
With fears within, and foes without,
O lamb of God, I come!

Niqabbigirl134: Salaam HS,

Niqabbigirl134: Welcome to the chat my friend, how are you? May the peace and Blessings of OUR SAVIOR fall upon you. Seek Christ in everything that you do. GOD loves everyone and wants everyone to live with HIM. He does not want to send sinners to hell fire.

Niqabbigirl from x.x.x.83 left this message 41 hours ago:

Salaam,
I thought I would just drop in and tell you that Jesus Christ came here to this earth for all people. Not just Jews that many believe and preach, but for Muslims, Hindus, Buddists, Atheists, Mormons, everyone. He came here to do many things. But I thought I would put here the things that Jesus did that is the most important. Please read. Niqabbigirl

THEY CALLED HIM JESUS
Seven things Christ did for all.

1. He was “lifted up” as a Sacrifice

John 3:14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

God lifted him so the world could see our saving grace

The believer now has total life

Man could not do God has done.

2. He died to redeem us.

Titus 2:14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Clean us from all iniquity

Purify our sinful hearts and lives to him self

To make us a peculiar people

To make us want to do good works

3. He was “raised up” as a Saviour

2nd Cor. 4:14Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.

He came forth as the King of Kings

He gave us a taste of glory here on earth

He sent us the spirit of redemption

4..He rose to Justify

Romans 4:25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our
justification.

He justified our sins before God

He delivered us from hell

He took us out of the hand of the devil

He changed our hearts and lives completely

5. He was “received up” as a Victor

Mark 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

He went home to heaven in front of them

He took our sins to the mercy seat of God

He still ask the father to forgive us today

6. He lives to save

Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

He saves all who come to him

No matter how low we are

His who life is to talk to God about every sin

7. He comes to Glorify

2nd Thess. 1:10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

Glory to God he will return to get us.

He will glorifies this old body of sin

He will change it to a clean pure body.

Niqabbigirl from x.x.x.83 left this message 41 hours ago:

True repentance is always accompanied by sorrow.

Repentance is a deep, radical, fundamental, lasting change;
and you will find that, whenever you meet with it in Scripture,
it is always accompanied with sorrow for past sin.

And rest assured of this fact– that the repentance which has
no tear in its eye, and no mourning for sin in its heart,
is a repentance which needs to be repented of.

In such false repentance, there is no evidence of conversion,
and no sign of the existence of the grace of God.

The man who knows that his sin is forgiven,
does not cease to mourn for it.
No, brethren, his mourning becomes deeper as
his knowledge of his guilt becomes greater.
His hatred of sin grows in proportion as he understands
that love of Christ by which his sin is put away.

Tough Issue: Unanswered Prayer

by Erica

I have been pondering lately the idea of unanswered prayer. Why does God not answer prayers? Why do some people not get healed? Why are so many believers without jobs? Haven’t they prayed in faith? After much prayer and searching the scriptures, I have come up with a list of some answers. Fortunately, the God I serve is bigger and more powerful than even the most thorough research and comprehensive list, though I believe He delights in our pondering and wrestling with tough questions. First, I would like to say that I don’t believe the Lord leaves any of our prayers “unanswered.” I believe the Lord’s heart is utterly broken when we are suffering and He is not a coward or an avoidant to our problems. I believe that, over time, the Lord reveals His truth to the hearts of all of His children, as they diligently seek Him.

Some reasons I found for “unanswered prayer”:

1. We don’t ask. Maybe we asked, but we lacked persistence. (Matthew 7:7-8)

2. We haven’t asked in faith. We have to believe that God is capable of answering our prayer, that He desires to communicate with us, and that His will is perfect. (Mark 11:24, Mark 6:5 NLT, Hebrews 11:1)

3. We are not looking for God’s answer. (Acts 12:13-16, Jeremiah 7:24-26)

4. We are not asking in Jesus’ name. There is power in a name, but there is even greater power in the name of Jesus Christ. Make it a regular practice to use his many names in your prayers. (John 14:13-14, 16: 23-24)

5. We haven’t fully surrendered our lives to God. (Deuteronomy 6:5, Matthew 10:39)

6. We are asking for things outside of His will. (1 John 5:14-15)

7. God is waiting for us to accept a different (often greater) answer. (1 Samuel 1 – It wasn’t until Hannah changed her prayer from just having a child for herself to desiring a child to turn over to the Lord in service did the Lord answer her prayer.)

8. His answer is being delivered in rough packaging.

9. We are disobeying God. This may be in an aspect of our life that is entirely different from the thing we are praying for. (Hebrews 3:7-19)

10. We must FULLY obey God before the answer comes. (Jeremiah 7:23)

11. We limit God by our half-hearted obedience. (Matthew 16:24)

12. We limit God by our half-hearted prayers. (Ephesians 1:19-20)

13. We are cherishing something that is outside of God’s will. (Isaiah 59:1-2)

14. We need to forgive others. (Matthew 5:23-24, Colossians 3:13)

15. We need to forgive ourselves. (Hebrews 8:12 He will never remember our sins… Neither should we beat ourselves up about them.)

16. We are seeking a supernatural remedy when a natural one would do the trick. We are being lazy to help ourselves. (2 Kings 20:7, 2 Thessalonians 3:6)

17. This isn’t the right time. (2 Peter 3:8)

18. We aren’t being still or quiet enough to hear Him. (Psalm 37:7, 62:1)

19. We need to spend more time in His word. (Psalm 119:105)

20. We don’t fully grasp God’s heart for us, and therefore lack faith that He longs to speak with us. (Jeremiah 32:40, James 1:18)

21. We need to confess some part of our lives to others. (Psalm 32:3-5, 66:18)

22. We aren’t in a Godly community. God uses our communities to speak truth into our lives and answer our prayers. (Acts 2:42-47, Ephesians 4:15, Hebrews 10:25)

23. Our pride is in the way. We are not fully willing to be broken by God and fall in humility at His feet. (Obadiah 1:3)

24. We are not trusting God with our finances. (Malachi 3:8)

25. We are not living a life of servitude. (John 13:14)

26. We are not answering the call of the Great Commission. (Matthew 28:19-20)

27. We are not living in an attitude of worship and thanksgiving. (1 Thessalonians 5:18, Psalm 89:15-16)

28. God has given us free will and the ability to choose. Sometimes He wants us to decide for ourselves between many “good” options.

If you are struggling right now, I would love to pray with you. The Lord is the great restorer, and He has the power to help you through the fiery flames of life. Please know that the Lord loves and cherishes your heart more than you could imagine. He created you and He delights in His creation. Be encouraged. Our God is sovereign and He knows what He is doing.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” -Jeremiah 29:11

Is the WAY to God in Islam?
Are you forgiven by God in Islam? Are you SURE that Allah forgave you ALL your sins? Or may be you are just going to hell by following Islam?!



Who is God of our father Ibrahim? God is LOVE

Why do we look for God in Islam and in the Bible?


Are you seeking spiritual guidance and direction in your life?

Do you have serious questions about spiritual teaching and issues? About salvation, Islam and the Bible?

This free study I am offering to you provides Bible answers! God in the Bible offers the true answers to questions such as:

Does God really exist? What is the purpose and meaning of life? What is the origin of the human race? Can we receive eternal life after death? How can we be forgiven of our sins and receive the favor and blessings of God? Is God in Islam the same God of our father Ibrahim/Abraham?

We urge you to consider why the Bible is the best source of spiritual guidance and direction. Words of God found in the Gospel of Christ (Injil), can answer your questions about LIFE and the meaning of life. The teaching of Jesus can lead you to a fulfilling spiritual life and true Hope for eternal life. Please study this free lesson showing why this is so and be actively involved in discussions with us! ASK any questions and God will give you ANSWERS..may be from us too!

Introduction:

All people everywhere at some time in their lives recognize that they have spiritual needs. They need guidance and direction to find hope for eternity and answers to the questions of life. That’s why we devote daily our time to provide you answers to your questions. We offer you opportunity to be actively engaged in studying of the Holy Scripture. Let’s do it together. Because if God is NOT in Islam then you will JUST join millions of Arabs and Muslims in the hell fire. Study the Holy Scripture and we will FIND the TRUTH together!

People alone cannot provide this spiritual guidance

Many learned men do not even attempt to provide answers for the meaning and purpose of life and other serious spiritual questions. If they do try, they cannot prove their answers are right or wrong, and they often contradict one another. Many Muslims have just countless number of MISCONCEPTIONS about God and His Bible. We are going to change your mind by SHOWING you what is the WILL of God toward you and your life. Let’s consider Qur’an and the Bible and God will DEFINITELLY talk to your hearts about Himself.

Jeremiah 10:23 The way of man is not in himself;
It is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.
You need to find and study a source of spiritual direction and guidance from someone who really knows the answers. [Isaiah 55:8,9] That’s why LET’S be ACTIVELLY engaged in our DIALOG.

God in the Bible claims that it teaches the true answers to these questions

Psalms 119:105 Your word is a LAMP to my feet and a LIGHT to my path.
John 17:17 Your word is Truth.
2 Timothy 3:16,17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Bible teaching affirms that belief in God Jesus Christ will give us required spiritual direction you need to show you the meaning and purpose of life. It claims that you can FIND these answers in God’s word if you will diligently study the Scriptures because God is INTERESTED to REVEAL His plans He has toward you!

The purpose of this free study is to urge you to consider Bible teaching – the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Gospel is the Good News that God Jesus was resurrected to resurrect us for the ETERNAL LIFE with Him in His Kingdom of Heaven) – as the answer to your need TO FIND God and LIVE eternally with Him.

So, brothers Arabs and Muslims, please use the contact information we provide in the bottom part of our messages to contact us and engage in dialogue with us.

The Lord’s Prayer in Action

You showed us the Lord’s Prayer
so we would have a guide as to
what to pray and how. But the
Lord’s Prayer is far more than
a guide–there is in depth meaning to
it as well.

It is a guide that informs
and teaches us to the perfect
Will of out Lord and Savior.

There are so many bible verses
that uphold and support the
Lord’s Prayer. This prayer
is not some mundane prayer
that we rattle of in rapid
succession.

Let us learn from this prayer
and mediate on every word
and phrase. To miss out on its
genuine truth and spiritual
meaning would be fatal to our
spiritual life. Let us not
starve of this spiritual food!
Let us keep the Lord’s Prayer
tucked safely and lovingly
in our hearts.

Not just our minds. Life
has deep meaning and as
our spirits become more
entwined with that of
Jesus then we will start
to live.

But love is an action word
so daily let us see what
we can do for ourselves
but what we can do for
others. Now that is the
the REAL ABUNDANT LIFE!!

Help in times of weakness

Dear Lord,
Please help me to be strong at this time in my life. So many sorrowful and frightening things are happening in my life. Please help me get through this and not sink into depression. I cant be strong without you Jesus. Be with me when I feel my world is falling apart. Give me your strength.

A prayer for lost souls

Dear God
I ask that we as Your people would beg for Your heart, a heart that yearns to see Your people come salvation. Let us feel the pain You go through as You watch Your people pave their way to an etrnity without You. Place within our hearts a burning desire to see the lost come backe to You. Let us fo this without thinking of the cost.
In the mighty name of Jesus.
Amen

God’s purposes

ndeed I have spoken it;
I will also bring it to pass.
I have purposed it;
I will also do it.
Isaiah 46:2b

Lord you always have your way. Please help me to surrender to you; everything. I know what you have for me is by your perfect design…help me through the pain as I let go.

I ask in Jesus name

Keeping Strong in Our Lord

Precious Lord,

Thank YOU for continuing to hold me. I have never given up in YOUR Love for me. YOU have always been my Rock, the place for me to come when I am at my lowest and the place I can come to rejoice when I am at my highest! Lord, I am holding on to the strength YOU are giving me! I’m refusing to back down to the evil being thrown at the Shields being held up before me! Thank YOU, Lord, for always being there for me! I Praise YOUR Holy Name! With YOUR Love, Strength, Courage and Eternal Help, I will get through this as well! I feel YOUR Hands on my shoulders holding me up as YOU Have always done! With my head held high, this evil WILL NOT WIN! JESUS IS MY LORD, NOTHING WILL PREVAIL OVER HIM!! Thank YOU, my Lord and Saviour, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, forever and ever…….AMEN!!


Prayer

O Creator of the universe, the earth, and its inhabitants, Help us to remember you created us. O Lord, whose knowledge encompasses all, help us to remember You know us. O God, who loved the world enough to give Your Son, help us to remember You love us.
Father, Those who have HIV/AIDS. Who are afraid. angry and depressed. Heal them. Heal their body. Heal their mind. Heal their soul. Lord, lend them Your strength for the living of their life. Help us all to be an example of Your love and Your goodness.

Amen.

Prayer

there are times in each life
when there is no one .
no one with whom to share
a word ,

from such loneliness .

Amen!

Thank You Lord

Thank you Lord for your mercies that you have given unto us. Thank you for your kindness patience. Lord I thank you for the young people who will stanf and seek Your face. Amen

2 Chronicles 7:14-15

Father God, I am so distressed about the direction that our country is headed in. Just as you were able to get King Saul to do as you needed him to, I pray that you will send your Holy Spirit to descend upon our President and the members of both bodies of legislature. Fill them with wisdom and a deep desire to do what is in the best interest of the people that elected them to the positions they hold. Give them wisdom and knowledge that they may lead the people. I have seen in the reading of the Old Testament that you hold the leaders responsible for their attitudes toward you. Thank you Lord that you care for each of us.Guide our leaders into righteousness. Forgive them for promoting abortion, idolatry, adultry.
Give President Obama insight as he decides whether or not he will support Isreal. Your Word tells us that the nation that turns it’s back on Israel will not survive.
I am so distressed today as I pray for our leaders. I know that you are able to use anyone for your purpose.
Thank you Lord.
In Christ most Holy name I pray.

Happy Birthday America!

God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her,
and guide her
Thru the night

From the mountains,
to the prairies,
To the oceans,
white with foam
God bless America,
My home sweet home.
God bless America,

Thankfulness for healing

Thank You Lord for answering an unspoken prayer to yesterday’s events. A week of rest now and change of perspective. Then I should see clearly.

Break my heart Lord
Don’t let it turn to stone

Father I venture a prayer for anyone else reading this that has a broken heart over relationships that seem totally our of your control. Give God room to move Lord, move in our broken lives so we may find the healing You prescribe in various places.

AMEN

Enlighten the Darkness of My Heart

Most High, glorious God, enlighten the darkness of my heart, and give me faith, certain hope, and perfect charity, wisdom and understanding, Lord, that I may carry out your holy and true command. Amen.

A Fathers Prayer

Lord,

I ask that you take my Son under the shadow of your wing and protect him from physical and mental harm. Do not let him stray away in curiosity. Put a hedge of protection around his crib, car and home.

Lord, Enable me to be a Father to him as you have been to him. To teach him the difference between right and wrong. To encourage him and love him. I ask that Lord you present my case before God and ask him to be with my attorney on Tuesday morning. I ask that the Judge has eyes that see the truth and grants me the ability to be with my Son soon!!

In Jesus name, Amen!!

Thank you for the Victory Lord Father!!!
