WE WHO BRING THE
We who bring the Gospel of Christ, are not public relations agents,
attempting to establish good between Christ and the world. Our
commission is not to make Christ acceptable to anyone. We are
not diplomats but instead prophets, bringing the Word of God!
We have no power to transform any soul; that power belongs only
to God. But we are expected by God to bring the Gospel to lost
souls. A person cannot be saved unless they “hear”
(or read) the Message (Rom. 10:13-17). It is the responsibility
of ALL believers to tell others about Jesus!
The Message we bring is NOT a compromise, but a warning! It is
not an option for us; it is the command of Jesus (Mat. 28:19).
God offers life; not an improved life of our old ways, but a brand
new life, out of the bondage of Satan and sin, God’s wrath
and eternal death! We must never dictate to God, but fall down
on our knees, in sheer humility, before our Creator God who hates
From Jesus, our risen Saviour and Lord, and from Him alone comes
eternal life, cleansing of all our sins, rebirth, and power to
live a life that is pleasing to Him, and one day our resurrection.
The power that raised Christ, will one day raise us also. The
righteous (those who believe God and accept Jesus) will be raised
to everlasting life, AND the wicked (those who reject Jesus and
refuse to believe God) will be raised to everlasting shame and
contempt and destruction (Dan.12:2; Jn.5:25; 6:40; 11:25; 2 Cor.4:14;
1 Thes.4:14-17; 2 Thes.1:8-9; Rev.20:6, 15). Trust Jesus, and
tell others of Him.
The Old Testament prophets were hated, along with the Message
they brought (Ps.50:17; Jer.6:10; Zec.7:12); and too, we today
who serve God faithfully, are also hated! This is no surprise
to those who know and trust the Lord, for He said it would happen
(Jn.15:18,25). We who have the Lord in our hearts need never fear
the scorn and contempt of those who don’t know God (Is.51:7).
Jesus plainly tells us IF we take a firm stand with Him, we shall
be persecuted, even those nearest and dearest will turn against
us. Luke 12:53 The
father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the
father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against
the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and
the daughter in law against her mother in law. [KJV] Jesus clearly tells us there will be “division”
because of Him! Luke 12:51 Suppose
ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but
rather division: [KJV] WHY the division?
There is NO middle ground with Jesus. You are either for Him or
against Him! You can accept Him OR reject Him. Jesus simply told
the Truth, as do His faithful ones today. There are honest seekers
who want to know more about Jesus, and those who don’t like
what they hear. We are accused of fabricating Scriptures because
cults are telling them what they want to hear (2 Tim.4:3), along
with some preachers in the pulpit. They say a God of love would
never send them to Hell. God does not send you to Hell, the decision
is yours! You make the choice! God is a God of LOVE and a God
IS GOD REALLY A
GOD OF WRATH? Chapter 1
What is “the wrath of God”? We must understand exactly
what it is, and WHY God is a God of wrath. The “wrath of
God” is His great anger and displeasure with sin and with
Psalm 7:11 God judgeth the righteous, and
God is angry with the wicked every day. [KJV]
Who in God’s eyes is “wicked” or a
simply it is all who reject Jesus by unbelief. John
16:9 The world's sin is unbelief in me. [KJV]
We must believe God, all that He says. John 3:16 For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have everlasting life. [KJV]
John 3:18 He
that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth
not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the
name of the only begotten Son of God. (KJV)
Jesus says that there is no judgment awaiting those who trust
Him. But those who do not trust Him have already been judged for
not believing in the only Son of God. The moment that you trust
Jesus with your heart and soul, Heaven is your eternal Home! You
will never be condemned to Hell! BUT --- IF you refuse to trust
Jesus and reject Him, you have already been judged and condemned
to Hell. God does not hide the Truth about salvation, He makes
it very plain!
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath
everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not
see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (KJV) All
who believe in God's Son have eternal life. BUT --- those who
do NOT obey the Son will never experience eternal life, but the
wrath of God remains upon them. Here is another either/or verse,
with a little extra punch! IF you believe God, you have eternal
life now, BUT, if you don’t accept Jesus, the (here’s
that word) “wrath” of God abides on you! In other
words, you are doomed to an eternal Hell because YOU refuse to
believe God! Did a loving God send you there? NO, my friend, you
did it yourself! God loves you so much that He made a Way possible
for you to live in Heaven with Him some day. NOTICE: I said “A” Way! There is only
one Way to Heaven and that is Jesus! By rejecting Jesus, (God’s
Way) you are choosing Hell.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me. (KJV) NO ONE can get to the Father
(in Heaven) except through Jesus! You either believe God and accept
Jesus, OR you end up in Hell. It’s your choice! You must
decide for yourself. It’s the most important decision you
will ever make in your life! And, no one can make it for you.
Jeremiah 25:4-5 And the Lord hath sent unto
you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them;
but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear. 
They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way, and
from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the Lord
hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever: (KJV)
Again and again, the Lord sent His prophets, but the people would
not listen or even try to hear. Each time God’s message
told them to turn from the evil road you are traveling and from
the evil things you are doing. Only then will I let you live in
this land that the Lord gave to you and your ancestors forever.
Maybe you who are reading this have heard the Gospel many times
before. As I stated, ALL true believers are responsible for bringing
the Message of Christ Jesus. It is NOT an option with us. IF we
do not tell others, we are in direct disobedience to God. We are
as the prophets of old. We tell, over and over again; yet so very
few respond. The vast majority of people do NOT want to hear the
Truth, “that they will end up in an agonizing Hell without
Jesus.” This is why so many turn to cults who teach “A
loving God would not send me to Hell.” That is what people
want to hear, but it is NOT the Truth! God is also a God of wrath,
and I must teach the whole Truth. It is my job to keep telling
others, whether they listen to me or not.
Jeremiah 29:19 Because they have not hearkened
to my words, saith the Lord, which I sent unto them by my servants
the prophets, rising up early and sending them; but ye would not
hear, saith the Lord. (KJV) God said they refused to listen
to Him, just as if He had not even spoken to them repeatedly through
His prophets. --- People still are not listening to God!
Ezekiel 33:8 When I say unto the wicked,
O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to
warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his
iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. (KJV)
If we do not announce that wicked people are sure to die and we
fail to warn them about changing their ways, then they will die
in their sins, but we will be held responsible for their deaths.
Ezekiel was a watchman to Israel. His job was to warn sinners
of their ‘sure to come’ misery and danger. He warned
the wicked to turn from their ways, that they may live. If any
souls perished through his neglect of duty, God held him accountable!
So it is with those who bring the Gospel today! If we see an opportunity
to tell someone of Jesus, and don’t do it, that soul might
be lost forever, and we shall be held accountable by God. Yet
consider too; those who ‘profess’ to be Christians,
and what they will have to answer for: flatter sinners, make excuses
for sin, encouraging people to believe that Heaven is secure for
them, condoning living in (practicing) sin.
The rich have watchmen to guard their homes and possessions,
yet never once consider everlasting happiness OR everlasting agony
where their soul in concerned. They are highly offended when true
believers obey their Master’s command and give them a true
warning concerning their eternal souls. It seems they would rather
be condemned to Hell by listening to false things.
Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept
in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation,
ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,
and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. (KJV)
Godless people worm their way in among you, saying that God's
forgiveness allows us to live immoral lives. The fate of such
people was determined long ago, for they have turned against our
only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. TRUE Christians are called
to forsake the world of wickedness that is under control of Satan.
We are called to higher and better things: to Heaven, things unseen,
spiritual and eternal. Called from sin TO Christ, from emptiness
to fulfillment, from uncleanness to holiness. The godless (wicked)
are those without Jesus, who turn the wondrous grace of God into
gross immorality (lasciviousness), or in other words, lawlessness
topped off by arrogance! It is NOT all right to live immoral lives!
The fate of those who do will lead them straight to Hell.
2 Cor. 6:17 Wherefore come out from among
them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean
thing; and I will receive you, (KJV) We as God’s children
are to separate ourselves from worldliness and live a life that
is pleasing to God. There can be no union between God and any
sin or evil. If we want God to be our God, we must behave like
IS GOD RIGHTEOUS
IN HIS WRATH? Chapter 2
Those of us who are faithful and obedient to God in bringing
the Truth in His Word, are looked down on by the vast majority
of people, including our own families. Both my husband and myself
can testify to this. I am simply not allowed to talk “religion”
to my own mother. My “way” is not the only way, she
says. I don’t have a “way”! It’s God’s
Way, not mine! This tragedy weighs heavily on me, for Mother is
in failing health and will not listen to me or anyone else who
tries to tell her the Truth. All I have now is prayer.
We are those whom unbelievers hate to see coming because they
do not want their sin enlightened. They accuse us of bringing
a Message of gloom and doom (Hell), whereas the truth of the matter
is that we are bringing a Message of pure love, but they flatly
disagree. All they want to hear is that a loving God will NOT
send them to Hell, no matter what they do, and this is NOT true,
and we cannot teach it! We preach Jesus out of LOVE! God does
not want anyone to go to Hell, so He made a Way to save the souls
of the wicked, and that Way is Jesus! How can a righteous and
just God accept sinners? When we turn to Jesus to save us, His
precious Blood (1 Peter 1:18-19) washes us white as snow. Even
though our sins are “as scarlet, they shall be white as
snow” (Is.1:18). The Blood of Jesus “cleanses us from
all sin” (1 John 1:7). Only then, can a righteous God accept
us and not let His “wrath abide on us” (John 3:36).
The “Light” of Jesus radiates in us, and as the Light
of Jesus was not accepted when He was on Earth as Man, His messengers
today also are not accepted.
John 1:4-5 In him was life; and the life
was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and
the darkness comprehended it not. (KJV) Life itself was in
Jesus, and this life gives light to everyone. The light shines
through the darkness, and the darkness can never snuff it out.
Only in Jesus is there “life” (spiritual life). “Darkness”
is a symbol of evil, sin, worldliness, wickedness and Satan. Jesus’
light shines but the darkness (evil, Satan) cannot comprehend
it. Jesus is the Light of our lives. Only He can lighten the pathway
to Heaven! Without Jesus, we stumble around like a blind man in
a strange place. Only Jesus can kindle (arouse, set on fire) light
in our hearts. Anyone without Jesus does NOT have this light in
their hearts. It will be these people that the “wrath of
God” will one day cast into the “furnace of fire”
righteous and just? ABSOLUTELY!
Psalm 116:5 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
yea, our God is merciful. [KJV]
Psalm 119:137 Righteous art thou, O Lord,
and upright are thy judgments. [KJV] God never did, never
can, and never will do wrong to anyone! His Promises will be faithfully
carried out by Him that made them. Good to those who live a life
pleasing to Him; and bad to those who turn their backs on Him.
God’s wrath is what God feels when people sin against Him.
It is His Holy, righteous anger. God is so holy, just, pure, righteous,
merciful and good, that He absolutely cannot stand to look on
any sin! If you do not accept His Way (Jesus) to remove your sin
and make you righteous, you are doomed to an eternal Hell! Without
Jesus, to God you are “wicked.”
Psalm 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into
hell, and all the nations that forget God. [KJV] This
is a Promise from God!
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed
from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men,
who hold the truth in unrighteousness; [KJV] God shows His
anger against all sinful, wicked people who push the Truth away
from themselves. He very plainly reveals His holy wrath (both
in the Old and New Testaments) against all “ungodliness”
(all that is against God), and all “unrighteousness”
(all that is against mankind). We cannot deny and scoff at God’s
rules by which we should live our daily lives. If we suppress
the Truth in any way: lies, stealing, oppression, immoral living,
etc., we “hold the truth in unrighteousness.” Why
is God so angry at sinful people? Because they substitute the
Truth about Him with fairy tales. They stifle the Truth of God
and people believe their lies. God cannot and will not tolerate
sin because He is morally perfect! He cannot ignore and will not
condone any willful rebellion! God wants to remove the sin and
restore the sinner, and He is well able to do so, BUT, the sinner
must not stubbornly distort or reject His Truth! His holy anger
will erupt into out and out WRATH against those who persist in
sinning; and that “wrath” will lead to their being
condemned to an eternal Hell. Are you pursuing a fantasy of lies
that will land you in Hell? Or, are you pursuing the true and
righteous God who loves you and wants you to be His child and
live in Heaven with Him some day? Only you can decide!
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of
him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood
by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead;
so that they are without excuse: (KJV) From the time God
created the world, people have seen the Earth and sky and everything
that God made. They can clearly see His invisible qualities, His
eternal power and His divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever
for not knowing God.
Does anyone have an excuse for not believing God? The Bible very
clearly states an definite NO! God has shown what He is like,
in and through all His Creation. Therefore, every person either
accepts OR rejects God. Don’t be fooled! When the day comes
for God to judge your response to Him, He will accept NO excuses!
There is not a person anywhere in the world that cannot “see”
God in His Creation! The Person of God, and His awesome power
are clearly shown, everywhere! ALL people are given enough “light”
to “see” God! Psalm 8:3-4 When I consider thy heavens,
the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast
ordained;  What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the
son of man, that thou visitest him? (KJV) Look at the night sky
---- see the work of God’s fingers. He set the moon and
the stars in place. Look out the window at God’s majestic
world! Tell me you can’t see Him.
Psalm 48:10 According to thy name, O God,
so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is
full of righteousness. [KJV] Our faith in God and His Word
should be strengthened day by day. The glorious hope within us
should encourage others. Our minds should always be filled with
good thoughts of God. His abundant streams of love and mercy that
flow down to us, all can be traced back to the fountainhead of
His loving-kindness. Let us praise God who deserves our worship,
for all the things He has done for us. Since true believers are
founded on Christ the Rock, we are fortified by His Divine power
and guarded by Him who never slumbers nor sleeps. God is unchangeable
in His love for us. He will lead, guide, direct and keep us to
our last breath forever more.
Psalm 119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting
righteousness, and thy law is the truth. (KJV) God is always
right, pure, holy and just. God’s righteousness and justice
will never change! Praise Him today!
Psalm 111:3 His work is honourable and glorious:
and his righteousness endureth for ever. (KJV) Everything
God does reveals His glory and majesty. His righteousness never
fails. God’s most wonderful work is His pardoning of sin.
We should remember this and glorify Him for it. But, IF we won’t
believe God, and reject His Son; His holy and just wrath is kindled
God will never break any of His
Promises, and His Promises to believers are many:
forgiveness of sin and all the penalty of that sin, our assurance
that He is always near to help in all situations, fulfillment
of all our needs, resurrection to eternal life, name some terrific
BUT, God also makes Promises to
unbelievers (sinners, the wicked, those without Jesus); and these
Promises are terrifying! Unbelievers will be held
accountable for everything they ever did in their entire life
(Rev.20:12), for they will not accept the pardon that comes only
through Jesus, and they will be sentenced to an eternal, agonizing
Hell (Rev.20:15). And the false doctrine that says God will weigh
your good against your bad, and IF the good outweighs the bad,
you will go to Heaven, that is ridiculous! There is NO such thing
in the Bible!
IF God did not keep His Promises,
no one could trust Him, BUT, He does indeed keep ALL His Promises
--- to His children and to the children of the devil (1 John 3:10).
Psalm 145:17 The Lord is righteous in all
his ways, and holy in all his works. [KJV] God is present
everywhere, but to His children, He is close to them in a special
way, as He is not with unbelievers. God is in the hearts of believers,
abiding there because of our faith. He is close to all those who
call upon Him, there to help in times of need IF they call upon
Him in truth and sincerity. It’s foolish that more people
don’t turn to God. Your choice: blessing or curse!
Deut. 11:26 Behold, I set before you this
day a blessing and a curse; (KJV) Today God gives you the
choice between a blessing and a curse! We ALL have broken the
Law, just as Israel did, and we too are under a curse,
without Jesus. There is
NO way we on our own can change that curse to a blessing! But,
in mercy, the Gospel also sets before us a blessing and a curse.
A blessing, IF we obey the call to repentance and turn to Christ
in faith, accepting the newness of heart and life that only Christ
can make available to us, through Him. IF we reject God’s
offer of eternal life through Jesus, a horrendous curse, for we
have neglected God’s great salvation. Please do not harden
your heart, but hear and obey the voice of God. In great love
and concern He invites you to come to Him and be His child.
God does not want you to hear the
following words: Matthew 25:41 Then
shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me,
ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his
angels: [KJV] Please make the wise
Psalm 96:13 -- he shall judge the world
with righteousness, and the people with his truth. [KJV]
His coming draws near! Christ shall come to judge the Earth and
execute just vengeance on His enemies, and to fulfill His Promises
to His people. Will you welcome this day? Please consider preparation
to meet our Creator God who is also our Judge. Seek the pardon
of your sins and the renewal of your soul to holiness, through
the one and only Way, Christ Jesus!
Acts 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day,
in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that
man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto
all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. [KJV] There are MANY gods in the world today, and MANY religions!
There are MANY so-called Christians who are earnest in their devotions,
yet they worship false gods in vain, or they have accepted false
doctrines that will lead them directly to Hell. We must admit
one thing: when Judgment Day comes, and we are judged, it will
be done right! The Judge will be the One with the nail pierced
Hands and Feet; the One who was resurrected from the dead. Jesus’
resurrection assures us we will be resurrected as well. Those
“in Christ” (the righteous) will receive eternal life
in Heaven; those without Christ (unbelievers) will receive eternal
shame and agony in Hell (Dan.12:2).
is righteous and just in ALL His dealings with us.
Matthew 22:14 For
many are called, but few are chosen. [KJV]
Many are called by God, but few accept His invitation (Luke 14:16-18).
Most people make excuses as to why they reject Jesus. But, unless
you repent and turn to Jesus, Hell for you is “As Good As
Done.” Please consider this!
PAYDAY FOR LOST SOULS
Payday will came for all lost souls,
All those not found on Heav’n’s roll.
God’s grace is gone! His wrath does start,
For from His Son, you did depart!
Rejecting Christ thru’ unbelief,
Will cause lost souls eternal grief.
The wages of sin is death, my friend,
You’ll go to Hell, where pain won’t end.
Unbelief to God, is the worst sin,
Is today; always has been!
It’s telling God, He’s a liar,
Your payday will be, the “Lake of Fire.”
Payday will come on Judgment Day,
The righteous Judge, you will not sway.
The “books” will be opened wide,
There’ll be NO place, for you to hide!
You can avoid payday in Hell,
Instead you can, in Heaven dwell!
Believe and accept what God has said,
Trust Christ to save; you’ve nought to dread.

CARRIED OUT IN THE PAST! Chapter 3
God is always good, and righteous, and pure, and holy, and perfect
and just. We are sinners! Let’s discuss SIN. Sin is any
transgression of God’s Law (1 John 3:4) --- in our heart,
soul and/or mind, as well as in the outward conduct of our lives.
It can be by omission OR commission (Rom.6:12-17; 7:5-24). Sin
in not merely a violation of the law of our constitution, but
an offense against a personal Lawgiver (God) who will most certainly
retaliate any offenses with penalties. Our soul is conscious of
our sin. We know when we do wrong, and we know we rightly deserve
punishment, and deep within we also know that sin calls down the
wrath of God. Sin produces guilt and corruption in us. The character
of our heart produces our actions. Sin always starts in our heart
Adam and Eve’s sin (Gen.3:1-6) involved yielding to temptation
and eating the forbidden fruit. So, what was so bad about that?
Their sin boiled down to unbelief, or in effect, making God a
liar. Their willingly disobeyed a definite command given to them
by God Himself! By that sin, they became apostates to God, turning
against their Creator. They lost the favor of God, and they lost
the fellowship they’d had with Him.
Original sin. We all (no matter who), go back to Adam and Eve.
They sinned, we sin! They felt guilt, we feel guilt! Adam was
the head of mankind. When he fell, we fell (Rom.5:12-21; 1 Co.15:22-45).
His fall was our fall. Because of Adam’s first sin, ALL
his descendants came into the world in a state of sin and condemnation,
a state of moral corruption and guilt. Original sin is often and
properly used to signify the moral corruption of our inherited
nature. This moral corruption we inherit consists of: loss of
original righteousness which God gave to Adam and Eve back in
the Garden and a constant desire to do evil. It is called “sin”
(Rom.6:12, 14, 17; 7:5-17), the “flesh” (Gal.5:17,24),
“lust” (Jam.1:14-15), the “body of sin”
(Rom.6:6), “ignorance, blindness of heart, alienation from
the life of God” (Ep.4:18-19). Sin pollutes the entire person,
driving them downward into deeper and deeper corruption.
“There is no man that sinneth not”
(1 Ki.8:46; Is.53:6; Ps.130:3; Rom.3:19,22-23; Gal.3:22). There
are different kinds of sin: presumptuous sins or defiant acts
(Ps.19:13), secret or hidden sins (Ps.19:12), sin against the
Holy Ghost or the “sin unto death” (Mat.12:31-32)
which is simply a willful rejection of the glorious grace of God.
So, what are some examples of God bringing down judgment on those
who willfully sin against Him? God clearly tells there will be
judgment to come to all unbelievers (wicked).
Romans 2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent
heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath
and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; (KJV)
People won't listen. So they store up terrible punishment for
themselves because of their stubbornness in refusing to turn from
their sin. There is a day of judgment coming when God shall judge
all the world. As I have stated before; God is loving, kind, righteous,
good and perfect! He will NEVER do any wrong to any person, ever!
But, because God has these attributes, He must bring down judgment
on those who disobey Him or He would be a liar! God is NOT a liar!
There is a day coming when you shall stand in His awesome Presence!
And all unbelievers will be judged according to what they have
done in their lives. It’s as good as done!
Genesis 6:5-7 For every man shall bear his
own burden.  Let him that is taught in the word communicate
unto him that teacheth in all good things.  Be not deceived;
God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he
also reap. (KJV) Do not deceive
yourselves; no one makes a fool of God. You will reap exactly
what you sow.
God saw the abounding iniquity of the wicked world inpre-flood
times and His wrath kept mounting. His holy decision was to punish
it. The Spirit of God tried to reach people. God sent Enoch and
Noah (maybe others) to preach to them. God was very patient, as
He is today! But He stated that His Spirit would not always strive
with men (Gen.6:3). He would leave them alone to be hardened in
their sin, readying themselves for the destruction to come. He
does this today too! (2 Thes.2:11-12). God sees all the wickedness
that goes on in the world. It wasn’t hidden from Him then
or now. When sin is not repented of, it shall ripen to receive
God’s judgment. Sin was committed in all places, by all
sorts of people. Their wickedness was great. God saw their every
imagination, all their thoughts, and all was evil continually!
Their hearts were deceitful and desperately wicked (Jer.17:9),
their principles were corrupt, their habits and dispositions were
evil. They did evil deliberately, maliciously dreaming up how
to do mischief. There was no good among any of them. God saw all
this, then and now, and it grieves Him and makes His Heart break.
God hates sin, then and now! God resolved to “destroy man
from the face of the earth” just like filth wiped off a
place that should be clean. I think that was a very sad day for
God when He had to send the Flood.
Genesis 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The
end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with
violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the
earth. (KJV) God’s decision
was made! Because of people’s willful rebellion against
God, they would be destroyed, then and in the future.
Genesis 6:17 And, behold, I, even I, do
bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh,
wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing
that is in the earth shall die. (KJV) Do
you see just how furious God really was? Can you comprehend it?
His wrath had climaxed, He could take no more!
Genesis 7:19-24 And the waters prevailed
exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were
under the whole heaven, were covered.  Fifteen cubits upward
did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.  And
all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of
cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth
upon the earth, and every man:  All in whose nostrils was
the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died. 
And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face
of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things,
and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth:
and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the
ark.  And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and
fifty days. (KJV) The waters covered even the highest mountains
on the Earth, standing more than twenty-two feet above the highest
peaks. All living things on earth died; birds, domestic animals,
wild animals, all kinds of small animals, and all the people.
Everything died that breathed and lived on dry land. Every living
thing on the Earth was gone. Now, let me ask you a question. Do
you honestly think that these wicked people that God killed in
the Flood will be in Heaven some day? God killed their bodies,
yes! But He did not kill their souls. Their souls went into Sheol
(Hades) to await future judgment when they will be resurrected.
In the Book of Daniel, it states there is ONE of two destinations
for all resurrected souls.
Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep
in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life,
and some to shame and everlasting contempt. [KJV] You
must make your decision here on Earth, while you are physically
alive. Will you believe God? Will you accept Jesus? Only Jesus
has Heaven’s ‘key.’
Jude 1:5 I will therefore put you in remembrance,
though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the
people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that
believed not. (KJV) Jude gives us three examples
of rebellion against God. This is the first
example. Even though the people of Israel were
delivered from slavery in Egypt by God, later they refused to
trust Him and enter the Promised Land (Num.14:26-39). The privileges
these people had! They were God’s chosen people yet that
could not keep them from the wrath of God, for they turned away
from God in unbelief and disobedience.
The destruction of the unbelieving Israelites in the wilderness
clearly shows that NO one should take for granted their privileges.
God performed miracles as to their daily bread and clothing, etc,
yet even they perished in unbelief. We must believe God!
Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their
first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved
in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the
great day. (KJV) The 2nd example of rebellion against God that Jude gives us is the angels. YES!
There are bad angels! Although these were once living in the Presence
of God, some gave in to pride and joined forces with Satan when
he rebelled against God. Maybe they were not pleased with the
positions God had given them. Pride was the main and direct cause
of their fall. These fallen angels are kept (in chains) until
the great day of Judgment. Shall fallen mankind (unbelievers)
escape God’s wrath? No way, my friend! Will these angels
be returned to Heaven some day? Absolutely not!
Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and
the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to
fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for
an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. (KJV) The 3rd example of rebellion against God that Jude sets before us is one that
nearly everyone is familiar with; sexual perversion. In today’s
society, it is highly accepted. People see nothing wrong with
it. BUT, what about God? What does God say about it?
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with
mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. (KJV)
Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind,
as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination:
they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
1 Kings 14:24 And there were also sodomites
in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of
the nations which the Lord cast out before the children of Israel. [KJV]
Romans 1:24-27 Wherefore God also gave them
up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour
their own bodies between themselves:  Who changed the truth
of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more
than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.  For this
cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women
did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the
woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working
that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence
of their error which was meet. [KJV]
1 Cor. 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous
shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither
fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor
abusers of themselves with mankind, [KJV] SO!
What does God say about sexual perversion? It is very plain! He
very clearly states, over and over again that it is an abomination
to Him! That means God hates it! It absolutely disgusts Him! The
cities of Sodom and Gomorrah are an excellent example of just
how God will deal with the sin of homosexuality. The inhabitants
of those cities were so full of sin that God wiped them off the
face of the Earth (Gen. 19:1-29). Do people actually think that
God will not judge today’s sodomites? IF God completely
destroyed two cities (except for three righteous persons) back
then, why would He overlook the same sin in people today? If God’s
chosen people (Israel), angels and sinful cities were punished
and destroyed, how can people think God will not judge sin of
today in the same manner?
Many do NOT want to believe that God sentences people to “eternal
fire” for rejecting Him. But this is clearly taught in His
Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was
not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of
fire. [KJV] Any sinner who won’t seek forgiveness from
God shall face eternal separation from Him. I can hear some say:
“That wouldn’t be so bad, would it?”
2 Thes. 1:8-9 In flaming fire
taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not
the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:  Who shall be punished
with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and
from the glory of his power; (KJV) “Everlasting
destruction” is the lake of fire (see above).
It is eternal separation from God and all that is good. If God
is not there, there will be NO good at all in Hell. Those people
who are separated from God in eternity no longer have any hope
for salvation. To be cast out from the Presence of the Lord is
eternal death. The grace of God will be gone! (Isaiah 2:19; 66:24;
Mat. 25:41; Mark 9:44).
WHY WOULD HE SPARE YOU??
If God spared not the angels that did sin,
But cast them to Hades; all chained within.
Reserved in the darkness; judgment to wait,
Why would He spare you? for His Son you do hate.
If God spared not the old world, way back then,
But brought a flood, where the ungodly had been.
Saved just Noah’s family, out of respect,
Why would He spare you? for His Son you reject.
If God spared not Sodom and Gomorrah,
But turned them to ashes from brimstone and fire.
Made them an example, to not live in sin,
Why would He spare you? for His Son you won’t win.
God won’t spare filthy dreamers of today,
That preach Heaven by some other way.
And the ones that listen, and take it all in,
Won’t be spared either, for it’s all sin!
God made just one Way of salvation for man,
We must BELIEVE Him; accept His only plan!
God sent His own Son to take away our sin,
Unless you believe and accept Christ; you can’t win!
By His servant: Connie Kramer Dec.27,1995 #77
I cannot teach just the ‘good’ things,
I must bring the whole Truth. I must imitate my Master the best
that I can. What did Jesus teach more than any other subject? HELL! Why?
He does not want you to go there.
DO YOU THINK ABOUT
HELL??? Chapter 4
MEMORIES YOU WILL HAVE
If you choose the broad road that leads to Hell,
That place of judgment, where all evil dwells.
You will have memories, for ever more,
The Bible does tell what is held in store.
Today most folk don’t study the Good Book,
They’d see for themselves, if they’d just look!
ALL who reject Christ, will end up in Hell,
And in that awful place, for e’er they’ll dwell!
Those who are there, wish they had one more try,
They look back; and for loved ones do cry.
Rejection of Jesus, they see in remorse,
If they had one more chance, they’d change their course!
The anger, pain, misery, and the thirst,
All the suffering; their minds near do burst.
Such a clear memory, of when on Earth,
But they rejected Christ, and all His worth!
If you were to ask any one of those,
There in dark Hell, where God’s judgment flows,
“Is there any thing I can do for you?”
They’d say: “Yes, tell others what Christ can do.”
By: His servant, Connie Kramer Dec.31, 1995 #83
This is why I try my best to guide lost ones to
Jesus. See: Lu.16:19-31. No matter who you are, you must go through
Jesus to get to Heaven!
God’s Holy Word repeatedly
tells of the agonies of Hell! It tells much more
about Hell than it does about Heaven, yet so many refuse to believe
Hell is an actual place. Do you refuse to believe it? Do you think:
“If I don’t think about it, it will go away?”
Hell is most certainly a place! WHY does God say so much about
it? Again I tell you, He does NOT want anyone to go there. He
loves you very much!
But, you say: “I have done bad things. God cannot forgive
what I’ve done.” WRONG! God does not hide any dirty
facts from us about those in the Bible. What about King David?
David did much good, but he was a sinner, the same as we are sinners
(2 Sam. 11:1-27). In the episode with Bathsheba, he allowed himself
to fall deeper and deeper into sin. He focused on his desires
and nothing else. When temptation came, he gave in to it instead
of turning away. He sinned deliberately and tried to cover it
up by deceiving others. He then committed murder to continue the
cover-up. One wicked thing led to another, like a snowball rolling
down a mountain, getting bigger and bigger! David’s sin
was finally exposed, as most sins usually are, and he was punished
by God. David’s sin not only affected him, but many others
as well. David could have stopped and turned from his evil ways
at any time, but once sin gets started it is not easy to stop
(Jam.1:14-15). The bigger the mess we get into, the less we want
to admit we were responsible for it. If you start sliding down
a slippery slope, it’s much easier to stop near the top,
rather than half way down. The best solution for us is to stop
sin altogether before it starts. Don’t give in to temptation.
SO! Did God forgive David? He most certainly did! Why, after
all the horrible things he did? Because David realized just how
he had sinned, and how wrong it was. Read Psalm 51. David pours
out his heart to God. David was truly sorry for all that he had
done, and God forgave him completely! God can also forgive us,
IF we repent as David did. David turned from his wicked ways and
God used him in a great way. The Psalms he wrote have blessed
people throughout the ages and will continue to do so. David is
the only person of whom God said: “he’s a man after
his own heart.”
Just how did God forgive sin in Old Testament times?
Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the
blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement
for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for
the soul. [KJV] How does blood make atonement (satisfaction
for wrongdoing) for sin? When offered with the right attitude,
the sacrifice and the blood shed from it made forgiveness possible.
The death of the animal fulfilled the penalty of death. God thus
granted forgiveness to the repentant, believing sinner. It is
God who forgives, based on the faith of the person doing the sacrificing.
So, all in all, God insisted on faith in olden times, and has
not changed His mind about that in today’s times.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible
to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he
is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. [KJV]
Genesis 15:6 And he believed in the Lord;
and he counted it to him for righteousness. (KJV) Abraham
believed God and because he did, God declared him righteous.
Romans 4:3-8 For what saith the scripture?
Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace,
but of debt.  But to him that worketh not, but believeth on
him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man,
unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,  Saying,
Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins
are covered.  Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not
impute sin. (KJV)
When Old Testament saints trusted and believed God, they offered
a sacrifice to God. The blood of that sacrifice came from killing
a lamb or other animal. The lamb was a sacrifice, a substitute
for that person. The animal sacrificed was required to be “perfect
and without blemish” (Lev. 22:19; Deut.15:21; 17:1; Mal.1:8,14).
Animals with any defects were not acceptable as sacrifices, because
they did not represent God’s holy nature, and the animal
had to be without any blemishes, because this looked forward to
the perfect and sinless life of Christ Jesus. When we give our
best to God, whether it be our time, talent and/or treasure, we
show the true meaning of worship and testify to God’s supreme
When God taught His people to worship Him, He taught that sacrifices
were very important. Why? Because sacrifices in Old Testament
times was God’s way for people to ask for forgiveness of
their sins. Since God created the universe, He has made it quite
clear that sin separates us from Him, and He also makes it quite
clear that those who sin deserve to die. So, because “all
have sinned” (Rom.3:23), God designed a specific Sacrifice
(His Son) as a way for us, in today’s times, to seek forgiveness
and restore our relationship with Him. Because He is a God of
love, mercy and grace, God has planned from the first that He
(Jesus) would come into our world (to suffer and die) to pay the
penalty for all sinners. So, since Jesus’ death on the cross,
we are no longer expected to offer blood sacrifices to God. Jesus
paid the sin debt of ALL mankind. His perfect Sacrifice was completely
accepted by God the Father (Ep.5:2) on our behalf. That’s
why God’s wrath is upon ALL those who refuse to believe
(John 3:36) and reject the perfect Sacrifice God designed for
God’s judgment is made so plain all through the Bible.
He gives us so many warnings! God is the same holy, just and pure
God now as He was way back then. He does NOT change His character
or personality (Heb.13:8: Jam.1:17), but, at times He does change
the way He deals with people. The sacrifices are one example.
Let us not feel secure in sin, but be obedient to Christ, for
nothing but the renewal of our souls can ever keep us from entering
“everlasting destruction” (Hell).
2 Thes. 1:8-9 In flaming fire taking vengeance
on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our
Lord Jesus Christ:  Who shall be punished with everlasting
destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory
of his power; (KJV) Again I bring these verses before
you. Just how much thought have you given to Hell? What
about Heaven? Do you ever think of what Heaven is like? These
verses clearly state that IF you do not obey the Gospel of Christ,
you are doomed to Hell! These are NOT my words, they are God’s
Words! Are you one of those who have come to believe that “A
loving God would not send me to Hell?” My friend, this is
a “damnable heresy” of cults!
2 Peter 2:1-2 But there were false prophets
also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among
you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying
the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of
whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. [KJV] Jesus
told His disciples that false teachers would come (Mat. 24:11;
Mk.13:22-23). Peter heard the words Jesus spoke, and now he was
seeing them come true. False prophets had contradicted the true
prophets in the Old testament (Jer.23:16-40; 28:1-17), telling
people only what they wanted to hear; so too, false teachers were
twisting what our Lord had taught. Anyone who teaches in a false
manner belittles the extreme importance of Jesus’ life,
death and resurrection. What they are saying is that our Lord
died in vain. They are saying they can get to Heaven without Jesus,
by their own way. They are actually contradicting God’s
most Holy Word and calling God a liar!
1 John 5:9-12 If we receive the witness
of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness
of God which he hath testified of his Son.  He that believeth
on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth
not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record
that God gave of his Son.  And this is the record, that God
hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of
God hath not life. (KJV) Some claim that Jesus can’t
be God, others claim He couldn’t have been a real man. False
teachers allow and even encourage all kinds of wrong and immoral
acts, especially sexual sin, then and now. We must be very careful
to avoid false teachers, for it could mean your ending up in the
depths of Hell, if you listen to what they teach.
Any church, book, tape series, tract, newsletter (including ours),
or TV message must be checked out with God’s Word. If it
does not agree with the Word of God, stay away from it! Don’t
listen to it, don’t read it, if it belittles our precious
Saviour Christ Jesus, or His work. The devil is very strong and
he does not want you to find out the Truth. But, IF you are searching
for the Right Way, God will see to it that you find it. I guarantee
it! God will never leave or forsake you in your time of seeking.
He loves you dearly and wants you as His child.
Again, I beg you, please check
out everything I say on these pages! Please don’t take my
word for anything! Your eternal future is extremely important.
Don’t take the word of anyone (except God) where your soul
is concerned, without checking it out. Just because someone is
teaching something you want to believe, does not make what they
are saying the Truth. Eternity is at stake. Please be careful.
God’s Word tells us we’re all sinners.
Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none
righteous, no, not one: (KJV)
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come
short of the glory of God; [KJV]
Eccles. 7:20 For there is not a just man
upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not. [KJV] I
have one comment on this. Yes! We all are sinners, but there is
a vast difference between saved sinners and lost sinners! All
who are saved by the Blood of Jesus will NEVER see the depths
of Hell, and all who are lost (without Jesus) will NEVER see the
bliss of Heaven (John 3:3). Woe be to all those who do not know
the saving grace of God our Father, for they shall know only everlasting
destruction in an agonizing Hell.
I cannot apologize for these brutal words. God has placed a burden
upon me to reach those who are not saved. I really care what happens
to you. If you are an unbeliever, please consider what I have
said. If you are a believer, please reach out to someone today!
Maybe the words you speak will save one soul from Hell.
MAKE BELIEVE WORLD
There’s a world of ‘make believe’ today,
From God and His Word, most folks do stray.
They won’t acknowledge or admit their sin,
The road to repentance, they’ll not begin.
They say right is wrong, and wrong is right,
They say white is black, and black is white.
Things must be ‘politically correct’,
And Christ as Saviour, they do reject!
They go to church, “To worship” they say,
But God is far from them, ev’ry day!
God’s true Word, they will not tolerate,
So Satan’s doctrines, preachers inflate!
They practice sin, and think nothing’s wrong,
For there are many others in their throng!
Abortion’s fine; too adultery,
The ‘make believe’ world, we must reject,
Christians instead God’s Word must accept!
We must live with eternity in mind,
To Satan’s deception, we must be blind.
Only God’s children will access Heaven,
When they accept the GIFT God has given!
The ‘true world’ is held by God’s own Son,
Just thru’ Christ can eternal life be won!
By His servant, Connie Kramer Dec.11, 1998 # 507
Only God’s Word can show you the real world.
REDEEMED BY LOVE
From the curse of the law, we are free,
Redeemed by love, for eternity!
Justified so freely; our sins are gone,
There’s peace with God; no more Satan’s pawn.
We have forgiveness of sins; thru’ Christ’s Blood,
Redeemed by love, thru’ His crimson Flood!
From our vain lifestyle, we are set free,
His precious Blood redeemed, you and me.
Redeemed by love; all of mankind,
All o’er the world, God’s children you’ll find!
Jesus, our Saviour; wondrous and true,
Redeemed us by love; both me and you!
By His servant, Connie Kramer May 29, 1997 #342
To redeem means to buy back something that had been lost, by
payment of a ransom. There are many Passages in the New Testament
that represent Christ’s sufferings as the idea of a ransom
or price paid, and the result is the purchase (redemption) of
our souls. Ephes.1:7 In whom we have redemption
through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches
of his grace; (KJV)
Col. 1:14 In whom we have redemption through
his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: (KJV)
1 Tim. 2:5-6 For there is one God, and one
mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;  Who gave
himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (KJV)
Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that
he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself
a peculiar people, zealous of good works. (KJV)
Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats
and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy
place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. (KJV)
1 Peter 1:18-19 Forasmuch as ye know that
ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold,
from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without
blemish and without spot: (KJV) The
Blood of Jesus is certainly most precious to all who trust Him!
The idea that runs through all these verses, even though they
vary, is that payment was made for our redemption. The debt against
us was not just canceled, but was paid in full! Christ’s
Blood which He surrendered for us all, was considered payment
in full by God the Father. We are delivered from the bondage of
sin and the consequences of sin (Hell). Christ saves us, not by
exercising His power, not by His doctrine, not by His example,
not by His moral influence; but by His work on the cross which
was considered sufficient and satisfactory by God. His death was
the expiation (making amends) for our ever present sin, and a
ransom from the curse of the law. When we believe by faith, we
are justified (declared NOT guilty in the courts of Heaven) by
God the Father. Does God love us? Without a doubt! Does Jesus
love us? So much that He died for us! You decide whether He loves
us or not.
Atonement is reconciliation. It also means satisfaction,
in regards to the sinner, to reconcile to God. This is necessary.
Romans 3:24-25 Being justified freely by
his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in
his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins
that are past, through the forbearance of God; [KJV] We are
sinners. God saves us by His awesome grace. There is NO merit,
whatsoever on our part. “Justified” means we are declared
‘not guilty’ by the Supreme Judge. When God forgives
our sins, our record is wiped clean. From His viewpoint, it’s
as though we had never sinned. Redemption is quite simply Christ
setting us free from the slavery of sin. When we believe, God
transfers Jesus’ righteousness over to the believer. His
righteousness is upon ALL who believe, no matter who! That righteousness
is placed upon us as a robe, and it is free grace (wondrous love
and mercy of God) that makes this possible to us. We can never
do anything to merit or deserve this grace. It is given freely
to us, but Christ bought it for us, paying a full and total price.
Faith in His Blood tells of Jesus’ life, which He surrendered
for us all. He made the propitiation (atonement) for our sins.
Nothing less than the Blood of Jesus would ever satisfy God.
There is only one Way to be reconciled with God and saved from
His wrath, and that is His Son. John 3:16 For God so loved the
world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth
in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (KJV) God
clearly reveals His Plan to all who wish to know the Truth. He
shows us the one and only Way to Heaven if we are not too stubborn
to believe Him. His Plan (Gift) is FREE! Grab it!
Ephes. 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through
faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 
Not of works, lest any man should boast. (KJV) God saved
you by His special favor when you believed. You cannot take credit
for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for
the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (KJV) Salvation is a GIFT from God, but it seems the more education
a person has, or the older he/she is, the harder it is for them
to accept this precious Gift! I’ve heard some pretty lame
excuses! “I wasn’t brought up that way” is one
a dear soul keeps repeating to me. The truth is, neither was I.
Never did I see a Bible in our house, never did I hear a prayer
of any kind. Yet God got me out of there because I was searching.
I kept searching and He found me! If you haven’t accepted
Jesus as your Saviour and Lord, what’s your excuse? Remember,
NO excuse will hold up when you stand before the Great Judge.
Salvation, or How
to Avoid Hell.
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (KJV) What does it mean to be “born again?”
Simply, that you are spiritually born into the family of God.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to
them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that
believe on his name: (KJV)
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I
am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me. (KJV) The “Way” to
eternal life (Heaven) is Jesus. Only Jesus can put your name in
the book of life (Phil.4:3; Heb.12:23; Rev.3:5; 20:15). Jesus
is the Way, and the only Way! You cannot work your way there,
you cannot buy you way there. Only Jesus has the key! Jesus is
God! He plainly states you must go through Him to get to His Father.
John 10:30 I
and my Father are one. (KJV) When God planned
salvation, even before the Creation (Ep.1:4-7), He made it easy
so that even a small child or retarded person could attain it.
Anyone (whosoever) trusts Jesus as their Saviour and Lord, becomes
God’s child. Plain and simple! Maybe it is too simple for
a lot of people, for they think they must DO something. You do
have to DO something!
Believe God, and accept Jesus by faith (Jn.6:28-29). Salvation
is a free Gift from God. All you need to do is reach out and take
Matthew 7:13-15 Enter
ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the
way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in
thereat:  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.  Beware
of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but
inwardly they are ravening wolves. (KJV)
Matthew 7:21-23 Not
every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the
kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which
is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord,
have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast
out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And
then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me,
ye that work iniquity. (KJV) There
are many “religions” out there, as people will be
quick to tell you. A “religion” is anything you believe
in, worship or practice. There are many FALSE religions (cults)
today. What we must keep in mind is that there is only
one true God in the universe. He is the God of Creation and the
God of the Bible. The Bible proves Him over and over again! His
Truth plainly tells us how to achieve Heaven and avoid Hell. Yet
false teachers run rampant world wide. They teach false doctrines
that will lead people right to Hell. The worst part is that people
eat it all up, they devour it. Why? Because they teach that a
loving God would never send anyone to Hell. That’s what
they want to hear! “I’m not a bad person” they’ll
say. The truth is that some unbelievers live a good moral life,
better than some professing Christians. BUT, they refuse to believe
Jesus is the only Way to Heaven.
They simply can’t see that road being so small. Yes, the
road is small, but in reality, it’s wide enough for the
On Judgment Day these false ones ALL will be denied by Jesus,
also those who fell for their lies. Then, they will see the big
mistake they made, but it will be far too late!
IF YOU DON’T KNOW CHRIST
Think ‘bout your worst pain and agony,
‘Bout your deepest sorrow and misery;
‘Bout the greatest suffering you’ve been thru’,
The depths of Hell will be much worse for you!
Think about awful unhappiness,
And ‘bout all the times you were friendless.
‘Bout the times you were lonely and blue,
Eternal Hell will be much worse for you!
Just think ‘bout the sun’s sweltering heat,
And so dark you can’t see your hands or feet.
Think ‘bout a dungeon with NO exit door,
Eternal death is this, and much more!
Think about no light ever again,
No water to ever ease thirst’s pain.
You can avoid all these awful things,
For Christ can all the opposite bring!

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in
any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among
men, whereby we must be saved. (KJV) God’s Words, not
mine! If you don’t know Jesus, turn to Him now.
Luke 9:26 For
whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall
the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory,
and in his Father's, and of the holy angels. (KJV) My prayer for you as you read this is that Jesus
will never be ashamed of you.
NO OTHER DOOR Chapter
John 10:1-5 Verily,
verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into
the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief
and a robber.  But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd
of the sheep.  To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear
his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them
out.  And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before
them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.  And
a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they
know not the voice of strangers. (KJV)
In the time of Jesus, sheep were often gathered into a sheep
pen at night to protect them from thieves, weather or wild animals.
These pens could have been caves, sheds or just an area surrounded
by a wall of stones or branches. The shepherd often slept in the
doorway of the pen to protect the sheep. Just as the shepherd
cared for his sheep, Jesus, the Good Shepherd, cares for His flock
(those who follow Him). Ezekiel predicted the coming of the Messiah,
calling Him a Shepherd (Eze.34:23).
The parable above, comes from the customs of the East and how
they managed sheep. Those who believe depend on their Creator,
and are called the sheep of His pasture. The true church of God
is like a sheep-fold. We’re exposed daily to deceivers and
persecutors, but our Great Shepherd knows ALL who belong to Him.
He guards us by His wisdom, guides us by His Spirit and His awesome
Word, and goes before us (leading us, NOT driving us), just like
the shepherds of old went before their sheep. Pastors and teachers
must serve the sheep and feed the sheep in all their spiritual
concerns. If we are lax in this, we will be held accountable.
Every pastor is responsible for every soul that enters the church
building. It is their responsibility to make the Gospel of Christ
known to the flock in order to keep them safe from oncoming attacks
of Satan and his children (false teachers and false preachers).
If a pastor or teacher does NOT bring the Gospel of Christ to
those who enter into the church building, and those souls are
lost because of their neglect, woe be unto them!
Matthew 18:6 But
whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me,
it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his
neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (KJV) Jesus warned that anyone who turns little children away
from faith in Him will receive severe punishment! I believe this
applies not only to the physically young, but the spiritually
young as well (1 Jn.2:1,12,18). We are responsible to tell the
Truth about Jesus, or we will be held accountable.
John 10:6-9 This parable spake Jesus unto
them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake
unto them.  Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily,
verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.  All that
ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did
not hear them.  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he
shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. (KJV)
Many who hear the Word of Christ, do not understand it.
Why? Simply because they will not! If you want to know
the Truth, God will most graciously see to it that you find the
Truth. One Scripture Passage expounds another, and the power and
wisdom of the Holy Spirit will make known to you the marvelous
and awesome Christ Jesus. Christ is the Door. He is the only door
that leads to Heaven. As I have said before, the foolishness of
unbelievers simply astounds me. They fall hook, line and sinker
for the “damnable heresies” (God’s Words, 2
Peter 2:1) of false teachers, but they cannot see the Truth that
God clearly sets before them.
Jesus is the Door, open for passage and communication, and He
is our Security, for He stands between us and our enemies. We
must go in through Christ the Door. He is our Mediator, between
God and us, and only by our faith in Him can we ever hope to access
the sheep-fold of God (Heaven).
John 10:10-18 The
thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have
it more abundantly.  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd
giveth his life for the sheep.  But he that is an hireling,
and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf
coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth
them, and scattereth the sheep.  The hireling fleeth, because
he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.  I am the
good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.  As
the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down
my life for the sheep.  And other sheep I have, which are
not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear
my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. 
Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life,
that I might take it again.  No man taketh it from me, but
I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have
power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my
Father. (KJV) Who is the “thief”? None other than the devil and his children. There is quite a contrast
between the thief who takes life and Jesus who gives life! The
life Jesus gives (here and now) is abundantly richer and fuller
than we could ever hope for without Him. And later, we have eternal
life, which begins immediately when we accept Christ.
John 5:24 Verily,
verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth
on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come
into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (KJV) NOTICE: We
“have” eternal life NOW, through
Jesus. But, if you insist on listening to people who are telling
you what you want to hear; that “a loving God would never
send you to Hell,” you are listening to a “thief”
who will NEVER give you eternal life, but instead --- eternal
death in the Lake of Fire.
Jesus offered Himself for a Sacrifice to God in our place. He
died in our place, to obtain for us freedom from the punishment
of sin. He obtained that pardon of our sin by His death on the
cross. Our Saviour and Lord and Shepherd laid down His life for
Living a life “in Christ” grants to us blessings
not known to those outside Christ. We receive abundant love, joy,
peace, hope, mercy contentment and guidance. All these will be
yours, when you turn to Jesus in faith.
John 10:19-21 There was a division therefore
again among the Jews for these sayings.  And many of them
said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?  Others
said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a
devil open the eyes of the blind? (KJV) There was then and
is now, a division because of Jesus. How well Paul and I know!
Satan is strong and ruins many by temptation, twisting Scriptures,
subtle deception, out and out lies, by any way he can; to keep
a person from Christ. Satan has many followers (many more than
Jesus, Mat.7:14; 22:14), and they are enthusiastic and tireless
as they serve their master. They are leading millions down that
broad road to Hell. IF only TRUE Christians were half as energetic
in serving Christ as professing Christians are in serving the
devil, the TRUE church would greatly increase. Please be warned:
check out everything you hear or read with the perfect Word of
God! Don’t take anyone’s word for something as serious
your eternal destiny! Don’t let the devil get his foot in
the door. Don’t ever think of speaking with the devil! The
minute you do, you lose --- big time! Turn instead to Jesus who
can give you LIFE not death.
CHRIST, THE DOOR
There is but one “Door” into Heaven,
Christ, God’s Son, whom to us is given.
Without Jesus, you’re God’s enemy,
Acceptance of Him makes you sin free.
God’s children have one qualification,
The Blood of Christ, gives us salvation.
We then have a privilege held in store,
We can enter Heaven, thru’ the “Door”.
Salvation for e’er, and liberty,
No more devil’s prison, we are free.
Access to the Father and His love,
Just thru’ the “Door” that will lead above.
A river of water, clear and pure,
And there’s a tree of life; so grandeur!
Almighty God shall take care of His own,
All who go thru’ the “Door,” when it is shown!

(Rev.22:1-2; Jn.10:7; 14:6; Rom.5:2; Eph.2:18; Heb.9:8; 10:19-22)
Only through Jesus
do we have access to God the Father, now in prayer and fellowship,
later in the bliss of Heaven which is God’s Home! Christ
is the only DOOR that will access Heaven!
This has been a very difficult book to write. I know many will
think my words harsh, or even brutal; but my only desire is to
tell the Truth about salvation and hope some may find Jesus!
