I continued down 8th and Main, and started preaching on Matthew, chapter 4. I declared, Jesus said “Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
While talking with this man, Patrick brought up the fact that during the crucifixion of Jesus, the veil of the temple was ripped in half.
Don’t worry about those that rise up against you. There are enemies against the faith of God but even they can be saved.
God loves the humble for they are open to receive Him. God’s counsel is taken with thanks. They are open to see the wickedness in their hearts.
The Lord God knows who loves or hates His words. Most people would rather walk in the ways of the world then change their ways.
Submit your lives to God. No longer let the members of your body fight inside of you. There is nothing good that can come from this.
If we are following God’s commandments then we are also loving one another, including the poor and afflicted and following Him.
Worshipping idols includes, spending our time and effort into having the luxuries in life through money, spending most of our time on our cell phones or watching or playing games on TV.
What an amazing love to have Jesus die for our sins on the cross. We are no longer condemned but alive in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Paul taught about people being divided in the faith. Some would say to him, “I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.”
The definition of effeminate or malakos, in greek, is the passive male partner in homosexual intercourse–‘homosexual’.
Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit and it is not our own. Each time you defile it with pornography and then masturbation, you are driving out the Spirit of God.
The Bible teaches, “thou shalt not commit adultery”. However, It is more than having sex with someone that is married, that is not our spouse.
Paul said, “Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” It is true that when we abide in the love of God that our shield of faith is raised.
If your heart isn’t for God then you are against Him. It is a terrible thing to be on the opposite side of God in judgement.
The sinner that repents and trusts in Jesus are saved. They have no fear of judgement. Judgement is only fearful for the wicked that dies in their sins.
God’s message of hope is for all mankind. It is being proclaimed to all the world, by people like you and me, if they might have ears to hear.
Each of us poured out our hearts to God. I thanked God for His mercy. I thanked the Lord for giving these people open hearts to talk to us.
As the service got over, many people came to speak to us. They said, how grateful they were for us coming. They asked where we came from and we said Boise.
Know that if the Bible is teaching something contrary to your faith than there is something wrong with it and not the Book.
After leaving the nursing home, I headed to downtown Boise to share the good news of Good Friday to the people.
Those in the faith of Jesus Christ are part of His body. We are all made up in the body of Christ and not a church building.
Continuing our walk this night, we stumbled upon this man who last week we prayed over his hand, since it was in a lot of pain.
It is a blessing to share the gospel message of Jesus Christ. Jesus did die for our sins on the cross. We can receive forgiveness if we confess our sins and humble ourselves before Him.
To yearn for things we don’t possess is against God’s will. When these thoughts are active in our minds we tend to make bad decisions.
Anyone that looks upon another to lust is breaking the commandment, “Thou shalt not commit adultery”.
Only false believers of God would say “there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many).”
There are no other gods beside God, the Father. Cast aside any false teachings about God in your heart.
Are you living for Jesus from the inside out? Just to declare you love Jesus but not live for Him is not enough.
After death comes judgement and we will be judged for what we knew and denied. Will the Lord accept you in heaven or deny you?
It was when I saw myself as a sinner that I found out how much I truly needed Jesus in my life. The cross now means the world to me.
