Shalom, child of God
Today let’s study the Bible again together.
There are some who think that there is no salvation in the world! but I want to tell you that salvation is right here on earth. It begins here.
The Bible says as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the coming of the son of man, and as it was in the days of Lot, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the son of man. So when we learn what things were going on shortly before these two events of the destruction of the world, we can understand clearly what will happen in the days of Christ’s second coming.
The only event we can learn before the Fire fell down to Sodom and Gomorrah is how people were saved … There are many events took place but today we’ll talk about this one.
The Bible says…
Genesis 19:12 “And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:
13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it.
14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.
15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city;”
We read there, before the destruction, there was an urgent gospel passed… Lot was told to tell his brothersi in law and relatives to leave the city, because the city was going to be destroyed, and if his relatives believed him, everyone would be scared and run to tell their other relatives elsewhere… So in a short period of time so many people would be saved … if people had ears to hear the warnings and become God-fearing, even after the sentence was pronounced, there would still be room for salvation! But people ignored it and got destroyed by the fire.
And if you also consider the time of the Flood. Noah was not only one saved, but he was told to gather all his family together with him… Obviously he also went to tell them the same things as Lot… but it is possible that he also seemed to be playing before their eyes! No wonder he ended up going into the ark with his three sons and their wives, just as Lot and his two daughters!
Genesis 7: 1 “And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
5 And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him.
6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. 7And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood”
Brother this little opportunity that God gives after judgment is pronounced is not about going to do good, no! it’s a chance to be saved and escape!!. Judgment is already pronounced.. it cannot be reversed. It must come just as it is pronounced!, It’s now a chance to escape the world and get into the ark, just as you are … It’s time to flee Sodom and Gomorrah… don’t go ask your father or mother’s permission. Should I supposed to be saved?..just flee..
Run away from sodomites as you are!… salvation starts from there you are in Sodom..because the judgment has been pronounced … Noah’s children didn’t need much holiness to get into the ark … they were not perfect and that’s why you see after coming out of the ark, Ham saw the nakedness of his Father … But they obeyed the gospel and so were saved! Only the last Noah’s Gospel saved them!. Remember brother/sister when the door of the ark is closed…then! there was no more time for God to listen to the prayers of the people… it is either you entered the ark and be saved or remain in the world and perish.
Once you enter the ark you are already saved! Even if the flood has not started yet!
And in the last days near the second coming of our Lord Jesus, there is a gospel that is being preached by the Holy Spirit, we cannot sit and ask God not to destroy the world!. He said the day of doom would come! No one can change that … And so there are only two options before us! Remain in the world to perish or enter the ark to live! THE ARK IS THE LORD JESUS.
If you want to be saved from destruction that is ahead of us, accept Jesus today, repent and go be baptized by immersion and in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, because the destruction is about to begin.
Again, are you saved? … Have you obeyed the gospel of the Holy Spirit that warns us to keep away from the world?..have you received the Holy ghost baptizim?
The Lord bless you

Despite having the Gospel of the Cross, which is the essence of every human being, there is another gospel also known as the Everlasting Gospel. This one is different from the gospel of cross.
The gospel of the cross itself declares salvation to man only, through one man called JESUS CHRIST our Lord. Any other gospel that claims to redeem man and does not place the Lord Jesus as the essence of the gospel itself, that gospel is void, because He alone is the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one will see God, except through him, the Bible says so (John 14: 6).
So, there are many gospels claiming that they can redeem man, but only one can save man! And that is the gospel through Jesus Christ, that’s what the Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 11:4 (KJV)
4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
See there? The Bible says there is another Jesus, another spirit and another gospel which were not preached by the apostles. Therefore, any gospel associated with the redemption of man should target JESUS CHRIST crucified as a major figure for salvation, him alone and not with someone else beside him.
But today we will briefly look at the Everlasting Gospel that was existed and spoken of in the Bible.
Revelation 14:6-7 (KJV)
6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
As its name “Eternal” proclaim, it means that it is the gospel that has existed even before man was created, which exist even now, and will continue to exist forever,
Remember the Gospel of the Cross had a beginning, and it will have an end someday, its beginning was at Calvary, and the end will be at the day of Rapture. After that there will be no place for redemption, because the door of grace will be closed at that time. What will remain is the same gospel that existed forever and ever.
Romans 10:13-15 (KJV)
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
you see there, there has to be somebody to preach it, in order for people to be saved. Unlike the everlasting Gospel. This gospel is not transmitted by preaching to anyone; It is God himself who puts it in a person, in a special area of the human heart called ” conscience”.
which everyone is born with. And it works to condemn all the evil ways that go against God’s will in man. And this Gospel is not existing only for mankind, it existed even for angels, because it is the everlasting one,
So any one who is born a human being, there is already something in him that will be witnessing the good and the bad things called concise?
without even being preached to, or reminded by anyone, for example, everyone knows that murder is wrong, whether he has the fear of God or has not. everyone knows that abuse is evil, regardless of whether the law said it or not, in his heart the conscience preaches to him that the act is wrong.
Likewise, it does not need to read the Bible to know that oppression is wrong, robbery is wrong, blasphemy, rape, corruption is wrong, all those crimes even if one has never heard of God, or anything called God will knows exactly what things are not right.
it also doesn’t need to go to biblical institutions to realize that having sex with your blood relative is wrong, as well as homosexuality is wrong; Now that’s what is called the everlasting Gospel, which God preaches in the human heart. And yes, in the last days that angel will come to reminder people, to fear God. But when those things begin to happen rapture has taken place already.
So do not think that those people who have not heard of Jesus (the Gospel of the Cross) anywhere, will not be condemned. No. They will be judged just like the rest of the gospel. The people of Noah’s day did not have the law God gave them as the people of Moses but they were judged, and that is why the Apostle Paul described these people as we read in ..
Romans 1:17-32 (KJV)
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
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:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 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.
26 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:
27 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.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. You have seen there brothers, the Bible says they know full well those who do such things deserve death but still do it.
That concise inside testify to them that what they are doing is wrong but they continue to do it,
What about you Who is in sin today? You are waiting for a preacher one day to prove for you from scripture smoking is sin? immorality is a sin? But your concise is telling you for sure what you are doing is wrong tells you completely what you are doing is wrong … know that judgment awaits you.
You who wear a short skirts, and walk half naked on the street you say God doesn’t look outside appearance, but your heart tells you for sure what you have weared is wrong but you ignore, you are wearing pants, wearing makeup, lipstick, and wearing a wig and here, the judgment is in the future sister! ,
you who gossip, you who are homosexual, you who practice abortion, you are an adulterer, you are an alcoholic, you are watching pornography, you are masturbating, you are worshiping idols of the dead saints. The judgement is awaiting you.
2 Corinthians 6:16 (KJV)
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
But the Bible goes on to say that as you keep your heart hard, there will come a time God will let you continue with your wickedness, because you have refused to obey the voice that speaks in you, until the day of judgment comes and you will go to hell !!
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
So, God’s sister / sister sentence is not inevitable until you are out of the church, the only way is to surrender your life to the Lord Jesus who gave his life to save you. Time is longer than you think, and the Gospel of the cross is not eternal when you will desire to enter and miss, this is the time, give the Lord your life from now on.

The biggest war going on in the world today is the war between God’s side and Satan’s side. God seeks for the souls of men as well as Satan seeks out the souls of men. These two spirits have been opposing eacher other, all along since the world began to be inhabited by humans.
But after man fell God used all means by his Spirit to draw him back, and at last it was good to bring his beloved son JESUS CHRIST for one purpose! And that is reconciling us to God, that in him we may all be saved.
Likewise Satan, used all his means to drive a man away from the purpose of God and to draw him to his side, this war began from Eden, when Satan used the serpent to deceive Eve to get his first captive.
And after some period when he saw that God had brought a savior in flesh, JESUS CHRIST and drew many people to the Father, he also began to plan for a single person who would have the specific task of drawing people to him and going against the one God had chosen (ie JESUS CHRIST). Now this son of Satan is called the Antichrist.
Remember the first battle before Christ came was spirit to spirit (ie the Spirit of God against the spirit of the devil), but the last battle is MAN against man (ie JESUS CHRIST against the Antichrist).
When many Christians miss their goal, it is when they fail to understand who Jesus Christ is and who the Antichrist is. If you fail to understand who JESUS CHRIST is, you cannot understand who the Antichrist is.
These two individual are both recorded in the WORD of God(Holy Bible) in “,MYSTERIES”. It means to recognize them in fullness it require “THE REVELATION FROM THE SPIRIT OF GOD” otherwise it would be much difficult to know them in fullness. In short, let’s look at the mystery of JESUS CHRIST that has been hidden for a long time and even now some people is still hidden from their eyes.
THE MYSTERY OF JESUS CHRIST:
1 Timothy 3:16 ” And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory”.
If you read careful you will notice there is something that God kept secret, and it is a clear fact that Jesus Christ was GOD IN THE FLESH. That is the Spirit of God working in the flesh, but many did not know it and rejected and crucified him, and even today many do not know it.
For the Lord Jesus said, “John 5:43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not; if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. “
You see! the other Lord whom Jesus spoke of, that will come in his name and people receive him is the Antichrist himself … read again the following verse.
1 Corinthians 2: 6-8 ″ Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. “.
Even today people in their hearts regard JESUS CHRIST as ordinary individual as they did then, despising his words not by mouth but by deeds, but they do not know that they are rejecting and crucifying God Himself, the Lord of Glory though their deeds, Dear brother/sister the Lord Jesus shed his blood for our sins to atone for us and yet today you are playing with it?, it will come a time when this grace will no longer be there for you.
THE MYSTERY OF ANTICHRIST:
2 Thessalonians 2: 3 “ Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved”.
If you can read again verse 7, it talks about the mystery of iniquity that works in the world, and this mystery of apostasy works within the WICKED ONE(WHO IS THE ANTICHRIST HIMSELF) as the scripture mentions in verse 9, that “his work is a his own work of the devil ”. Just as the Mystery of Godliness was operating in JESUS CHRIST, and the act of Jesus was an expression of God’s own work. In the same way (Antichrist) the mystery of rebellion works in him and his action will be a reflection of Satan himself.
NOW WHO IS THE ANTICHRIST?
After the devil saw that he could not get many people who want to worship him directly as humans worship God, he decided to transform himself into an angel of Light (2Cor. 11:14), in order to trap those who showed a love for Light.
Remember that Satan does not fight with the people of this world(wicked people), not at all!…because he has caught them and are always in darkness, in his side…so he can not fight with people that works with him.
Therefore in order to gain those who follows the light, he must disguise himself as an angel of Light, so his servants must also disguise themselves as servants of light. This is where there is a fierce battle when the wolf comes in a sheep’s garment. So it requires the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to recognize the antichrist otherwise we will not know where our enemy is and how he works.
Brethren! there are many satanic and magical groups, such as freemason, rotary clubs, iluminati, ku klux klan, brotherhood, and so forth, this groups have been feared as if they were the headquarters of the devil, do not be deceived, these are the groups that the devil uses to lure non-Christians and a few Christians with not strong faith, because a true Christian who stand firmly cannot go to the witch doctor and the devil knows it, and he cannot join in any of those groups or shoot. The demon, or demon-to seek help, the devil knows perfectly well.. that is why he changed tactic on how to trap him… if he were to rely only on that path, he knows he would miss most of the Christians in the world. He realizes that a Christian in his place will meet God is in the church and that is where he follows the Christians.
Remember again, Satan works in secrecy, and that is why it is called the ” mystery of iniquity “. and it works within the Church of God when the devil wears sheep’s clothing, but on the inside he is a BLOOD KILLER (This is a secret), destroy the souls of people (true Christians) and send them to hell. He uses his cunning to make people think that they are worshiping God, while they are worshiping him. He goes into church and makes people feel that they are in the right way, but in the end it is hell,. And what he sends to hell in this way is far greater than even those other small means like magic, freemason etc. THIS IS WHEN CHRIST said ” BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS, WHICH COME TO YOU IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, BUT INWARDLY THEY ARE RAVENING WOLVES 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”.
Brethren, the Lord has not warned us to beware of witches, wizards, or freemasonry, or spiritists.
After the devil secretly enters the church of God and for a long time, we see that he began by destroying the true teachings of God and introducing pagan doctrines like worship of the dead, worshiping three gods, adding books to the WORD of God, idolatry etc. the same devil bless alcohol in the church, and he twisting the Word of God by distorting the correct baptism of water, and the Holy Spirit baptising, he did so by killing spiritual gifts, infusing ungodly politics and titles, killing doctrines of divine healing, etc.
By doing so, he succeeded in creating his own church, a “dead one” with the same name as the original church but not, at that point people think that they are worshipping the true God knowing not that they are worshipping satan., The devil gave this name to his church and called it UNIVERSAL CHURCH, the Church of the World (Catholic Church).
And he (the devil) as the god of that church, he ordained his servants, and he held the highest position in that church, which is the very title of the Papacy (and that is the title of the Antichrist himself) standing on earth as Jesus Christ stood on God’s behalf on earth. We know throughout history that catholic church became his instrument to fight against the seed of God, it succeeded in killing over 68 million Christians, who tried to go against its pagan systems. And to this day the church continues to kill many people spiritually, thinking they worship God while they are worship Satan in that church. And it will come to kill many more during the time of great tribulation.
Thus the spirit of the antichrist rests in the position or seat OF THE POPE, so anyone who remains in that position will have met all criteria to be the Antichrist.
Today’s gospel, according to our time, is not just a gospel to draw people to Christ alone, because many have rejected Christ but do not know that they worship the devil without knowing it in their denominations thinking they are right.
Brother God has already pronounced a curse on the Catholic church and all denominations that do not live under the guidance of the Holy Spirit (for these together make up the mark of the beast). For a more in-depth understanding of the mark of the beast you can read our article titled “THE MARK OF THE BEAST.”
These are the words of the Lord himself.
Revelation 18: 4-5 ″ And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities “
The Lord warns us to come out (not by the feet but by the spirit. Come out of pagan doctrines which the Lord has condemned them that whomever associates with them will take part in all his organized plagues because they have participated in the shedding of the many blood of God’s saints.
God Bless you.
QUESTION: If God made His creatures perfect Where did Satan get that evil from? And Who created evil and wickedness?
ANSWER: Any good thing we see, until we know it is good, it is because there is something wrong that proves its goodness.
For example when you taste sugar until you know that sugar is sweet it is because you came across with something like salt before, or else you wouldn’t say sugar is sweeter……or when you see the light, until you know that this is light, it is because you have seen the dark and now how it looks light…
Nevertheless You would never new that this is a day if you have never seen the night before, you could never know that you are healthy if you have never been sick etc.
You can not judge foolishness if you haven’t known wisdom, one can be called gentle only because there is brute , until you know that there is a tall one it because there are shorts to compare with, you can not say this person is so meek while you haven’t seen an angry person, therefore the negative side is there to prove that positive exists, and everything is the same.. white-to-black, woman-to-man..etc
Now when God began to create His creatures, He created them all perfect, and allow them to taste goodness…But they would not known the goodness if there is no evil..thefore evil must also be there to prove the goodness.
The first group of createures to be created were angels, then follows humans…so from the beginning the angels were given ability to know good and evil in order to be complete.
Then, the angels knew now that in order for them to be holy as God they must hate unholy acts, in order to be good they must reject the evil of hating their fellow angels and their creator, in order to be honest then, they not to lie to one another etc.
Isaiah 45: 7 “I form the light, and create darkness; I have made amends, and have sought out evil; I am the Lord, who does all these things.
Lamentations 3:38 “Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good ”?
But later on things changed. Some angels, led by their father Satan, began to turn away from truth, and wanted to govern themselves, so they thought it is the best idea to choose evil to fulfill their fate, now instead of love they began to hate, they hated their fellow obedient angels, they also hated their creator who created them all, they began to lie, and began to destroy and fighting.
Then, when sin gained power in them, they lacked the glory of God, they became more wicked and wicked, and as the result were cast out of heaven from the God’s holy habitation.
So if you ask where the evil came from, know that evil and good were both created by God to fulfill a good purpose. But when those who turned away to love evil more than good they considered evils createres … So where did the devil got the wickedness? The answer is he was created with it.
Even now, whether you are a Christian or not, that knowledge of good and evil has been in you since Eden. It was God’s plan for evil to exist in a person for good purposes. Now it is up to you to choose one side, if you choose goodness then you will try to stay away from evil,and vice versa if you love evil then you will hate goodness.
John 3:19 “And this is the judgment; that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God”.
But we who are saved have loved the Light, that is why God’s judgment is not upon us … as Scripture says in Romans 8: 1.
Please share with others..
The Word of God says in …
Romans 14:10-12 “But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
12 So then EVERY ONE OF US SHALL GIVE ACCOUNT OF HIMSELF TO GOD.”
Judgement Day is coming, where every one of us shall give account of himself to god..We will all stand before the judgment seat and be judged. Whether we are holy or not holy..we will be judged.
Ecclesiastes 3:17 “I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work”.
The judgment of the saints will be different from the judgment of sinners.
Saints will not be judged for the purpose of punishment, but for reward. Those who were more faithful will be rewarded with more, and them one who were is less faithful will be paid less.
But he who was not faithful at all will be condemned to the penalty of being thrown into the lake of fire together with sinners. And those who are more wicked will be punished more than the others.
Luke 12:47-48 “And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more”.
And among those who are to be cast into the lake of fire, each will be judged according to his deeds.
Revelation 2:23 “…and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works”.
On that day just as the moon shines with all the people looking at it. so shall it be in that day of judgement, every man’s life will be reckoned unto him from his/her birth unto death;
Year after year, day after day, and hour after hour..all the things that he did and thought openly or secretly will be made public. And every Word and Deed will be evaluated ..And there will be questions about why you did it, what purpose you had to do that. Each act and the Word will be evaluated how it brought loss to the Kingdom of Heaven. And every one will give account.
The Bible says so in..
Matthew 12:36 “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment”
That day there will be no one around to help you talk…you will speak for yourself…
you will give an account for those blasphemous words you to uttered , you will give an account for the reason you were thief, the reason you spoke those blasphemous words.etc
nothing will be skipped, Even the secret things that you think no one else would know … will be made clear that day.
Luke 12:2-3 “For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.
3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops”.
Brethren If you have not yet given your life to Jesus Christ. You better do that now. Surrender your Life to him.. not only because you do not want to go to the judgment but also because you need salvation. Salvation is necessary for everyone, if you truly love Life then you will long to live forever.
And eternity is not available to anyone else other than Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is a giver of Life, and In him…life flows abundantly
But if you deny Jesus Christ today, and follow the will of your parents, or your brothers, or your friends, or your community, I want to remind you again and again that day you will stand alone.
So today decide and say I am determined to follow Jesus at whatever cost I as myself.
Carry your cross and deny yourself, if you were wearing short dresses, and pants and walk with them on streets, burn all of them today and never mind what your friends will say, or your relatives who are accustomed to seeing you dressed that way, do not look left or right or do not seek advice from anyone..
Remember that day you will be alone. you were putting a make-up on your face go now remove all of them, wash your face..remove all the cosmetics you have,
You were drunk..stop drinking from now on..and pour away the residue of alcohol left in your fridge, you were a smoker quit smoking immediately from today on,
you are a prostitute stop stop that habit…your phone is full of worldly songs and videos..what are you waiting? delete all of them now and never used to listen to them anymore…and all the other bad habits drop them down today.
And then kneel down and tell the Lord that you have repented! in action from today those things you have given up. And he will forgive you because he is so compassionate and merciful Lord…and a wonderful peace will come into you at the same hour after you made that decision, that Peace is the seal of your forgiveness.
So do not quech the Spirit of God in you, and make sure you quickly find the true church of Christ near you or any person of God who is near you who can help you, about spiritual matters
And also learn to read the Word of God yourself and seek the correct water baptism, and the Holy Spirit will help guide and guide you in all scriptural truth. Remember the correct water baptism is by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus according to Acts 2:38.
The Lord will never let you suffer or walk alone.. He will be with you even unto the end of the world.
It is thought by many that in order for one’s sins to be forgiven by God one must be led a specific prayer known as the Prayer of Repentance. They say Unless you followed that prayer, your sins may never be forgiven.And that has made many people even non-Christians to claim they are saved simply because they followed such kind of simple prayer. But is that all? .What does the Bible teach us about genuine repentance leading to forgiveness of sins?
Let’s explore together this experience of our Lord Jesus and His response to that situation, bacause there is something I want you to see probably you never knew it before, though we read it everyday from scriptures.
Let us read:
37“ And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,
38 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.
41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?”
You may also find in many places where the Lord Jesus utters this word, “Your sins are forgiven.” People are offended by him as a blasphemer, for judging people as if he were God,
you will also read that (Mark 2: 1-12) when he saw a paralyzed man and told him your sins were forgiven. people were very angry and said he is blasphemying.
But they did not see what Christ was seeing, they thought he was just deciding to say the words to everyone he sees around, even if he has no plan with God.
They didn’t know it…but Christ was looking deep into the inner chambers of the hearts of the people, He was seeing the genuine hearts of repentance,
hearts that repent of their sins..Hearts which say if God would hear me only this time and forgive all of my sins, I would serve him forever.Hearts which regrets for their past-doings, and are willing to start afresh with God.
That’s what the Lord Jesus saw in the woman and in that paralyzed man
though outwardly, they did not talk to Jesus,but inside their hearts were crying to the Lord
That is when Jesus declared publicly to that woman “Your sins are forgiven “,
Now those people who were around know nothing, while they saw that woman spoke nothing, they say to Jesus…You are blasphemying.
Take note! the Lord didn’t say “I forgive you sin” no! But he said “you are forgiven”
meaning that he was as if he were reporting something that had already taken place in heaven
it’s okay for someone to tell you “you’re forgiven interest”
that does not necessarily mean that he was the one who forgave you, but he stands as a representative of order that has passed elsewhere.
And that is what Jesus did, he did nothing except what he sees his father’s doing..
John 5:19 (KJV)
19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
But if the Lord saw the woman come with ointment and weep at her feet, and began to wipe his feet with her tears while inside she has no heart of repentance, it is obvious that Lord would not have told her those words, he would probably have told her other words to build her up but not “your sins are forgiven”
God is not pleased with 100 prayers of repentance that you are led daily, or how many times you open your mouth to confess you sins before him and how many times he cries for forgiveness.
If there is no sincere heart in you to turn from sin to Christ, your repentance is invalid.
One person may be a murderer, a gangster and a terrorist but one day he regrets his crimes and says from today on, my God I turn to you and these things I do not want them anymore!..Lord may accept him,
, but you who go daily to the throne of God and cry aloud and tell God to forgive you,
You are being led daily to the Prayer of Repentance but still behind you secretly commit adultery, you watch secretly pornography, you secretly drink alcohol, You call yourself a long-time church member I want to tell you the truth that God “CANNOT FORGET YOUR SIN”
The Lord forgives repentant hearts, not lips of repentance.So we must not deceive ourselves in any way. True repentance is not only from the lips but from the heart,
Whether it is for prayer or not for prayer , what matters is a sincere turn in the heart, and to regret by saying, I will no longer do it.
Is it you turned? if at this point in time, you will make a wise decision to change your life, and follow him, he will surely accept you.
God bless you.
Qn. Are there bigger sins and smaller sins, and if there are, Will a murderer and an abuser or who commit adultery, get the same punishment? are all sins equal?
Ans: Sin is a sin, whether it’s big or small, it’s all wrong, the Bible says.
James 2:10 “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law”
See there? So whoever commits a sin, great or small, will be punished, but the penalties will vary , because The Lord Jesus also said that the one who killed with the sword would also be killed with the sword, whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. The punishment of the devil cannot be the same as the punishment of man. The Bible explains in the Book of Luke..
Luke 12:47 ” And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more”
So the plagues will vary according to the deeds of the man he did while he was here on earth, just as the rewards will differ from man to man in heaven as they suffered in serving the Lord, and also in hell the punishments will vary according to the sins man committed in the world. So we are not to weigh sin in any way, the solution is to stay away from it because whether it is big or small, its wages is DEATH, (Romans 6:23).
God bless you.

What is a repentance prayer? Should repentance prayer be directed when one believes?
Answer: A Prayer of Repentance is a prayer, in which one believer guides another who enters the Faith.
A person who joins the Faith is following the words of the Faith and confessing Jesus with his mouth, that he is the Lord and Savior of his life and died for his sins.
Now there is no instruction in the Bible that says a person after believing in Jesus as their Lord and Savior. then he needs to be guided by a prayer of repentance. There is no such text,
But there is only one text that says.
Galatians 6:2 “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”
It means that ..The weak one in the faith must be supported and helped to stand and eventually walk on his own … Just like an infant trying to stand up to walk … A parent must hold his hand and lift him up and help him walk.
The same is true in the journey of Faith. One who comes out of sin directly and receives Christ, is like a newborn baby …many of these don’t even know how to pray, even if they pray they feel God is not hearing…they do not know God, nor do they know the power of God well. They need support.
So when you hold their hands and help them, pray with them in early stages … Their beliefs will rise and move forward. There are few who can hold their own
even standing up and growing spiritually without even being led to that prayer, but many of those who believe in the Lord Jesus in the early stages need much help. Because they are very young spiritual children born.
But if you let them pray for themselves in the early days … it is easy for the devil to make them think that they have not yet been saved or received Jesus. So they will continue for a few days and then fall back.
When they grow enough, then they do not need to be helped anymore but they must help others who are as weak as they used to be.
Thus the prayer of repentance stems from a Christian’s love for a new born child in the faith, and it is not a sin to lead men or to be led.
So love is unconditional.
Our Lord Jesus taught his disciples to pray … how much more should we teach and guide the spiritual infants in the early stages?
The Lord bless us.

Qn.What is the difference between a dream and Vision?
Ans: A dream is a series of images and thoughts and feelings that come during sleep, and they come without one’s free will, that means one does not plan or decide what to dream! they are just creating themselves!
And dreams can be influenced by our daily activities or the environment around us or what was around us a short time ago (Ecclesiastes 5: 3; Isaiah 29: 8),
And some dreams are from the devil and some are from God (Genesis 28:12, 37: 5-10).
And the Vision is not much different from a dream. Vision is the series of the images and feelings that come with being out of sleep…
And these also do not come as one intended, neither does anyone know what kind of vision he about to see, nor can snap a vision as one drowsy sleep….one suddenly finds himself looking or watching at something unusual or unusual,
or find himself in a certain event such as he dreams, and when he returns he finds himself not sleeping, perhaps he was walking or standing or was talking to someone and remembers the event he saw in that vision.
And visions can also be the result of many activities, especially people who are severely depressed and affected by substance abuse, as well as those caused by the devil. The devil can create visions on someone’s mind, these happen to many who are witches or possessed with demonic spirits.
And there is a vision from God.
Contrary to popular belief that everyone who is born again must see a divine vision, the truth is that not everyone must see a vision, one can be born again and even die and never have a vision in entire life and yet go to heaven.
The matter of seeing a vision or prophesying is the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and only God plan who to give and who not to give, the one who has not been given will have been gifted with another unique gift, and the one who is given will be deprived of other gifts of the Spirit.
It is impossible for all people to have the same gifts and it is impossible for one person to have all the gifts alone (read.1 Corinthians 12: 29-31).
The important thing is to be born again and to be a new creation, (Galatians 6:15) and to live according to the Word… to see visions or to prophesy or to teach, they are not tests of holiness or tickets to heaven (Matthew 7:22).
God Bless you!

Qn. Is it sin to charge interest (unsury)?.. because the Bible says not to charge interest my fellow brother?, does that mean those who lend to people with interest are sinning?
Ans. The Bible forbids us to charge interest only to our own brother and sisters, but to others outside the brotherhood it is not a sin to incur interest.
Deutoronomy 23:19-20 “Do not charge a fellow Israelite interest, whether on money or food or anything else that may earn interest.
20 You may charge a foreigner interest, but not a fellow Israelite, so that the Lord your God may bless you in everything you put your hand to in the land you are entering to possess”
For example, you see your brother is in trouble struggling, and he asks you to lend him a little money, and then you use that opportunity to tell him to add another level of money (interest), as your benefit, that is a sin, if he / she borrows, then he repays what he has borrowed.
Don’t turn your brother’s problems into capital
Under normal circumstances even without being told by someone or being educated, you have a business house, and then your close relative has come to stay there for some time. You can’t tell him to pay the full tax like other people, he can only pay the normal small expenses but not cover everything, no human being can do that to his brother.
Likewise in Christianity, all of us who believe in Jesus Christ are made brothers. Christ’s love unites us together. We love each other unconditionally. That love makes us even less inclined to seek the benefit of our brethren in the Faith just as it does in our fleshly brothers. This is where the Bible urges us not to take interest in each other. But for someone other than our physical and spiritual brothers, we can tax them to make a profit in what we do. because interest is what makes the job grow.
But if we charge our brothers for profit, then the love of Christ is not in us, and so we sin against God.
Ezekiel 22:12 “In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord God”.
