Friend or Foe for Jesus.
He wants none to perish.
They know not what they do.
Today while I waited for an appointment, I used my phone to scroll facebook. More often than not, the Holy Spirit moves from the pages of facebook and stirs my heart with His wisdom, inspiration and humor.God is so amazing He does not cease to amaze me. With technology, we can reach all the corners of the earth with the truth of Jesus Christ. His children are on it,sharing the gospel message and rising up to the occasion. All Glory to God. His face smiles favor on His saints.
I understand people from all lifestyles can slip into our facebook or other social media sites. If a word from God helps one to grow in effectiveness or understanding, OK by me. We never know what seed might be planted for a hurting soul. We do need to use caution, which I am sure I do not need to preach to you. JK. Where there is good there is also evil.
Scrolling facebook I stopped in my tracks at a very disturbing post. I wish I had not seen it. It bothered me most of the day. The post was ---k Jesus. Then there was a cartoon sketch of man with man. Under the sketch it said, ‘yes ---k Jesus’. I was so angry. Those awful words tugged at my heart, I wept. This was an abomination towards Christ. How could one hate Jesus so much? Have they no clue to what He has done for us? They are clueless and lost, as I once was. I think of Jesus when He said from the cross, ‘forgive them Father for they know not what they do.’ Then to my shock, there were 42 likes on the post. I could not believe the amount of scoffers who gave this demeaning post a thumbs up. I did report the post as vulgar and unacceptable. I wanted to rip at the heart of the person posting such a vulgar and wicked word about our precious Lord and Savior. Our creator. The King of Kings who gave His life so we could be forgiven our sin and be made free into all of eternity.
It is yes or no for Jesus.
For Him or Against Him?
Is Jesus your Friend or Foe?
Nothing new under the sun.
All through time, man has spit upon Jesus and cursed Him. There is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastics 9:1) Jesus loved man so much He went to the cross for us. He has paid the price for our sin once and for all. He was willing to die for us wretched sinners who scoffed and spit at Him and scorned His very name. Is my sin any better or worse than when I said, ‘God damn it’ the other day. No, it is not. The good news is this I am forgiven. The Holy Spirit convicted me, not condemned me. I knew in my heart that was wicked and I pleaded forgiveness. I was truly sorry. I let it go. God has put our sin as far as the east is from the west, when we repent. Even the sin we are not ‘aware’ of. The grace of God abounds on His children. Amen. How many times a day are my thoughts, words, or deeds harmful? How many times do I mumble or grumble? I do not care to count. Yet, Christ forgives me. When born again we are new creatures in Christ. It is what God has done for us. It is nothing we have done for ourselves.
When we do not believe Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior our hearts will become hard in time. As many times as God comes to us and pleads for us to come to Him He will let us have our way. He does not twist any arms to come to Him. He gives plenty of signs that He is alive.Planet earth and its beauty is sign God is alive. Many will deny His name to the very pits of hell. It will be too late when Jesus returns to come to Him. He is calling to His people. He has commissioned His children to share the good news of the Gospel.
The devil hates that we can share the good news to the ends of the earth with technology. His evil demise is ramped in cyberspace. He is trying to stop any from coming to Jesus. His distractions are evil and wicked. He lies all across the board. He is out to take our families and rob us of any joy.
For those that do not believe and avoid the name of Jesus or deny His name may God help you. I too was sinner. I so needed His mercy. He saved me from the mud pit I dug for myself. He tried many times to reach me. Now I look back and can see. He literally saved me from hell. I should be under the earth buried. His grace was on my life. Do not be too late. You do not know about tomorrow.
If you so love Jesus then tell others. I do not need to tell you what is happening in the world. The prince of this world Satan deceives man. Jesus Christ saves man. Not even the gates of hell can prevail against Jesus. Jesus has already won the battle. Satan knows he has a doomsday coming soon. He is working double duty. Do not kid yourselves. Do not let your heart become so hard that it is waxed, cold. When Jesus returns it is not going to be on a donkey but on a, White Stallion, in the Clouds of Glory. He is coming for His church. Do not be left behind. The Prnce of Peace will rule this earth. He will wipe out the sin. He will dry the tears. He will heal the sick.
Children of God we need to rise up and stand for our Savior. He has given us all the tools. He has already given us the armor. We must suit up each day and show up. When the devil lies to us then speak scripture, tell him he is a liar. Jesus gave us His name above all others to use. If you spit it out then you too will be spit out of Jesus. The Holy Spirit is Gods power in us. It is not by might, nor by power but by my Spirit. (Zechariah 4:6) That means our flesh is not what moves the mountains. It is by the Holy Spirit of God that mountains move out of the way for us.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17) The Bible has sold over 5 billion copies. More than any other book every sold. There are 888,000 words and 66 books of God inspired written truth in the Bible. The Bible is not a fairy tale or fable. Much of the prophecy written has come to pass, to the T. Jesus wants none to perish. No not one. Ask Him into your heart if you do not know Him. Repent of Sin and get a new life. (Romans 10:9-10) Jesus will do the construction on your new heart.

I love you and pray each day the grace and favor of God abounds on you and yours.
