Hold On To Jesus

May 3. 2019


Greetings my friends, grace, and peace to you in the name of God our Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. I thank God for you, my friends. You are faced daily with challenges that test you to your very core. In many ways, we face the same challenges, and those challenges are common to most people. To top that off we face personal challenges that add to the common ones. If that is not enough there are challenges that we must face that are inherent in the system of this world. I know it is a challenge for you to resist the temptations that are presented to you to by the world.  You see the lies that are masquerading as the truth. You see the truths which are being declared to be lies. You see the easy way out disguised as the right way out. The wrong way seems better than the right way, and the right way looks to be the wrong way. Lord God, you are the light that shines in the hearts of men that open our eyes that we may see the truth as it really is. Help me to shine your light to the eyes of the minds of my brothers and sisters so that they may be guided by your truth concerning your way is the best way. That we may be encouraged in our walk. Thank You, Father, in Jesus’s name Amen.

My friends because we live in this world and we are not part of this world. Some of the challenges we face are common to us in the sense that many of us face the same problems, for example, many of us are out of work, and many of us who do have jobs face problems on that job. some of us cause our own problems in our jobs and some of us face problems that are not in our control and we have to face the pressure of possibly losing the job that we need to take care of our families. Your bills get behind because of some unforeseen incident involving a member of your family or friend and you help them and you fall short on your rent, you get robbed, or God forbid you get sick, or you make a costly mistake with your money.  You then seek help and everyone sympathizes with you, but no one helps you. Some of us will swallow our pride and even go to the church and the church say we will pray for you, and yet won’t help. But the people you know that are doing financially well and they don’t have a legitimate job like you joyfully reach out to help you when no one else will. Now you think it over and consider the cost and even though it tears away at your very conscious you turn it down knowing that you are not going to be able to provide food for your wife and children or lose the shelter God has enabled you to provide for your family. You have done everything you can do and it failed except one. Jesus said come to me all who are a burden and heavy laden and I will give you rest. The first person we should have come to was the last and just at the right time Jesus made everything right, Amen. Many of us who are Christians find ourselves in situations like this. Don’t feel alone, thank God for caring for you.

My friends, we don’t see things as they truly are. The scripture says that by faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command so that what is seen was not made out of what is visible. We don’t see things as they truly are. We think we know, we interpret what we see to be the truth and many times it is not true at all. For example, you can take a glass of water and place a pencil in it and the pencil will look as though it is bent. We don’t see the pencil as it really is. our vision is refracted. God’s word tells us that we don’t see the world as it really is. For now, we see things only as a reflection as in a mirror. then we shall see face to face. now I know in part, then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. The king of Syria sent a host of troops to find and take Elisha into captivity because he was angry that Elisha warned The king of Isreal of the trap the king of Syria had laid for Israel’s destruction. And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, Behold, a host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. and his servant said unto him, alas master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that are with us are more than they that are with them. And Elisha prayed and said Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man: and he saw, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. You may not see it but this you can be sure of, God is in control and He Love you and He has you securely in His Hand, Amen.

God is so good to us, God is wonderful, extraordinary, munificent, merciful, immeasurable, kind, loving and caring. God is so good that there is no evil in Him at all. God is so good and so generous,  God is the King of Kings, God is the Lord Of Lords, God is the Hero who rescued His people from horrors of death and Hell. Our eyes can’t see the wonderful things that He is doing for those who love Him, God is Faithful and will do everything He has said He will do. Everything that is seen and everything that is not seen is ultimately subject to the authority of Word of God’s Power and His will be done. My friends God is Holy, He is spiritually pure. God has never been wrong and can never be wrong. God’s Holiness demands that God destroy Evil. Evil is against the very nature of God and God must destroy evil.  God’s plan is to destroy, eradicate all evil from the world. Because God is true to Himself, just as those of us that are saved is considered by God to be seated in Heaven alongside Christ in the same way evil is consider eradicated by God. In other words, it’s a done deal. It will be done, nothing absolutely nothing can stop it, It will be done Amen. To us right now evil is currently being destroyed. To God, it is as well as done.

My friends the world is full of deception, evil is being destroyed and is fighting as hard as it can to take as many people as it can with it to hell. Hold on to Jesus. We sometimes go through tough times, and life becomes very difficult. Place your trust in God, God loves you and He is with you. God will not abandon you or allow you to suffer more than you can bear. When He lifts you up you won’t even remember the pain of being down because of the Joy you experience knowing that God lifted you up and placed you back on your feet making you better then you were before you fell down, hallelujah, thank you, Lord Jesus. Brethren, friends as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear has heard nor has it entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. Glory be to God! Thank You, Jesus.  From everlasting to everlasting. time without end thou are God, Amen

My friends that are not saved, God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believe in Him shall not perish but shall have everlasting life. Jesus said I Am the way and the truth and the life and no one can come to the Father except by me. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. You are reading this message because God loves you and this is your opportunity receive the gift of eternal life, Believe in Jesus death on the cross for your sins, do it today, God will reward you. Amen

Thank You, my Friends,

God Bless You
