Simple

   By Pastor Mike

The WORD of GOD is the greatest Book ever written. It is the greatest love story ever written. I wonder why our kids can’t read the Bible in school but they can read it in prison. They have a Bible people swear on in court to tell the whole truth but they can’t display the 10 commandments like they used to. The Bible isn’t a hard Book to follow.

You need to repent of your sins and turn away from them. Not just say sorry. We need to stop doing what we know is wrong. We need to stay on the narrow path to Heaven. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. The road to Heaven is paved with obedience.

Then you need to get Baptized in the Name of JESUS.

Matthew 28:19

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

The word name here is singular which means the name to be Baptized in is the name of JESUS. The name of the Father is JESUS. The name of the Son is JESUS. The name of the Holy Ghost is JESUS. Everyone that was Baptized in the Book of Acts was Baptized in the name of our LORD JESUS. If you need to be Baptized, you need to be Baptized in the name of JESUS.

You shall receive the gift of the HOLY GHOST. It’s a free gift. It’s yours if you want it. As you receive the gift of the HOLY GHOST you will speak in tongues. Speaking out loud is the key here. JESUS wants to take control of your tongue because it is the most unruly thing we got. We need to speak to the LORD and HE will take over and you will speak in another language. It’s for today. Whatever happened in the Bible back then is for us today. All of it. You gotta believe all of it.

John 1:1,14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 14:9

Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

Philip asks to see the Father and JESUS tells him that we been together how long? You’ve seen all the miracles that I did. You’ve seen me forgive people from their sins. If you’ve seen me, you’ve seen the Father. JESUS means that I AM THE FATHER.

Luke 11:23

23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

See, it’s very simple. Either you’re for JESUS or you’re against HIM. If you’re against JESUS that means you’re either for yourself or for the enemy. Either way you’re gonna lose. I chose to be with JESUS. I wanna gather with JESUS, meaning spending time with HIM. People who don’t hang with JESUS scatters all over the place meaning they will fall for anything the devil throws at them.  We need to understand that if we look to the devil we will be oppressed. If we look to ourselves we will be depressed. If we look to GOD we will be BLESSED.

Who Jesus is, thins the crowd!

PAKISTAN%20CROWD By Pastor Jeff

 

In the early days of Jesus ministry He attracted crowds and sometimes great crowds wherever He went, Matthew 8:1, “When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him” No wonder considering the things He was saying, Matthew 7:28-29,“And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” The things He did, Mark 2:12, “And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion”. And how He empowered His followers, Luke 10:17, “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.”

In our day we also have large crowds that claim to follow Jesus and many times for the same reason, but when Jesus identifies himself as the one who is the bread of life, we see the crowd thin significantly. In the gospel of John chapter six we see this played out; in this chapter we see alot of things happen, Jesus feeds the 5000, He walks on water during a storm, then arrives on the other side of Capernaum where again a crowd comes to hear Him. They ask Him a question about His heritage, He tells them He was the bread of life and that they must partake of Him because He is of the father. John 6:60-66, “Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.”  Who Jesus is cannot be revealed by traditional beliefs or following laws but only can be revealed by the Spirit. John 6:67-69, “Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.”

For me the realization of who Jeus is was very easy, I always had a difficult time trying to understand three seperate co-equal persons of the Godhead, Colossians 2:9, makes it easy to understand, “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” Everything that is God can be found in Jesus Christ, the Father, John 14:9-11, Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.” The Holy Ghost, John 14:15-18, “If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.”

Millions and even hundreds of millions are following a doctrine of who Jesus is that is not biblical and we that see Jesus Christ as God manifest in the flesh are being sometimes called in mocking fashion as Jesus only. I rather swim alone with Jesus than in a large school without Him. And besides we prefer to be called Jesus Everything, because to me thats what He is!
