2 Tim 2:3-4 Take your share of hardships and suffering [which you are called to endure] as a good (first-class) soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier when in service gets ENTANGLED in the enterprises of [civilian] life; his aim is to satisfy & please the one who enlisted him.

Gal. 5:1 In this freedom Christ has made us free [and completely liberated us]: stand fast then, & don’t be entangled (or hampered & held ensnared & submit again to a yoke of slavery [which you have once put off] 

    We are not to have a relationship with this world & it’s system. The Bible talks a lot about this. Be not unequally yoked, the children of light have not fellowship with the children of darkness, & much more. 

     We are in this world, but we are not of this world. When you are entangled with this world, you are in bondage to it. When you are entangled with something, you can not move without it affecting you. You are tied to it you are in bondage to it. It has total influence over you & what you do. How can we do the work of the Lord, when the burdens & cares of this world are upon us.

     To be entangled is to be entwined, involved with, entangle self with a fixed position (in place, time, state), both inwardly & outwardly) ensnared. 

     When I think of entangled. I don’t think of doing our regular job or talking to unbelievers, or going to a ball game. Entangled to me means someone is so involved with the world (or people of this world) that it clouds their judgment & their actions are those of a confused person. We are so tied to someone or something, that we can’t move without that thing or person changing the way we would do or the way we should be. God wants us to be free to be with Him. He wants us to be free to serve Him without being hindered. Even when I think of that I think of Paul when he says in 1 Cor. 10:23 All things are legitimate [permissible – and we are free to do anything to do anything we please], BUT not all things are helpful expedient, profitable and wholesome). All things are legitimate, but now all things are constructive [to character] and edifying [to spiritual life]

The life application bible say this: Some people think worldliness is limited to external behavior – the people we associate with, the places we go, the activities we enjoy. Wordiness is also internal, for it begins in the heart. It is characterized by these attitudes, 1)lust of the flesh-preoccupation with gratifying physical desires 2) materialism (list of the eyes) – craving and accumulation things; and 3) pride of life – obsession with one’s status or importance. By contrast, God values self-control, a spirit of generosity, and humble service. It is possible to give the impression of avoiding “worldly pleasures” while still harboring worldly attitudes in one’s heart. What values are most important to you? Do your actions reflect the world’s values or God’s values? 

You can be entangled with someone or something, even if the outward man or circumstances do not reflect it. What is in your HEART?

    There is nothing wrong with wanting a pleasurable life. God gives us good gifts that he wants us to enjoy. (James 1;17; Eph. 4:7, 1 Tim. 4:4,5) However Friendship with the world is seeking pleasure at others’ expense or at the expense of obeying God. Pleasure that keeps us from pleasing God is sinful; pleasure in God’s rich bounty is good. 

     We must keep are hearts on God and what he has for us. Do not look to the world and its system. And do not let people of this world drag you into their world. This worlds system is going down and God wants us to go up with Him. 

Rev. 18: 9-10 Those who are tied to the worlds system will lose everything. 

     When we focus so much on what we have when the world system falls, we will fall too. So be not entangled with anyone or anything BUT GOD! Be free to be what God wants you to be. Look at your daily walk, who are you with, what are you doing, what has you tied to it??? Do not be entangle to it. Look to Jesus as your source of Life and you will stay free!!! Be free in HIM!!!

Ps. 1:2 But his delight & desire are in the Law of the Lord & on His Law (The precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders & studies) by day & by night. vs. 3 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water…

     This is how we stay away from deception. Deception is going to continue to become more & more in these las days & we need to stay focused on the word & what it says how to stand firm & planted firmly & rooted & grounded in Him. 

     Let me say first, we must have our faith in what Jesus did at the cross and that will produce in us the desire and the insight to Gods word. 

Matt. 24:4 take heed no man deceive you.

Col. 2:8, Matt. 24:24 for false Christs & false prophets will arise, & they will show great signs & wonders so as to deceive & lead astray, if possible, even the elect (God’s chose ones).

     We must habitually day & night meditate, ponder & study the word of God.

     What are we doing everyday? Is our time spent on temporal things? It is what we are doing everyday that will either strengthen us or cause us to be defeated. (provided our faith is in Jesus & what He did at Calvary.)

Ps. 1:1 says we are blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, & enviable) if we DO NOT walk & live in the counsel of the ungodly. That means do not follow their advice, their plans & purposes. (So Dr. Phil is out, Oprah is out!)

     Many times when we run into trouble we ask others for advise, be very careful. This can cause more trouble & heartache than what you had before you ask them.

Walk & live, the bible says so much about how we should walk & live our everyday life.

1) DON’T LIVE IN THE PAST:

Phil. 3:13 forgetting what lies behind & straining forward to what lies ahead.

     We can’t walk & live in the past. FORGET IT! We are now new creatures…

2 Cor. 5:17 Therefore if any person is [engrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a NEW creation (a new creature altogether, the only [previous moral & spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh & new has come!

     You can not change the past. You are forgiven of the past. Today is a new day walk & live in it. Jesus died for us so we can walk & live in newness of life. We are forgiven. (jer. 31:34 & Heb. 8:12 says He will not remember our sins no more.  Ps. 103:12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions form us.)

2) LIVE IN THE NOW!

Today is the day of salvation. (2 Cor. 6:2)

Now therefore fear the Lord & serve Him in sincerity & in truth: & put away the gods which your fathers served… (Josh. 24:14)

Choose you this day whom you will serve. (Josh. 24:15

Keep your mind on Him. 

Is. 26:3 You will guard him & keep him in perfect & constant peace whose mind [both its inclination & its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, & hopes confidently in You. 

So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him…)

Read: Phil 4:8 Think on these things!!! 

Gal 5:16 But I say, WALK & LIVE [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit [responsive to & controlled & guided by the Spirit]; then you will certainly NOT gratify the cravings & desires of the flesh (of human nature without GOd) vs. 25 If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit).

Eph. 4:15 Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all thinks, speaking truly, dealing truly living truly]. Enfolding in love, let us grow up in every way & in all things into Him who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed one). 

Eph. 5:8 Walk as Children of light [lead the lives of those native born to the light}

Col. 3:1-2

Eph. 5:15 Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully & worthily & accurately, not as the unwise & witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people) making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.

Eph. 6:10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which his boundless might provides]

We can only truly live if we are IN HIM & let HIM live through us & yield to Him daily.

     I like how Phil. 2:13 put it: [Not in your own strength] for it is God who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing & creating in you the power & desire], both to will & to work for His good pleasure & satisfaction & delights. 

He gives us the strength & the power to live right each day. He gives us the want too & the ability to do His will. 

Rev. 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, & they that hear the words of this prophecy, & keep those things which are written therein: FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND.

3) LOOK TO THE FUTURE:

Heb. 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author & the finisher of our faith. 

Do not worry or fret about the future. 

Phil. 4:6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance & in everything, by prayer & petition(definite requests), with thanksgiving…

Matt. 6:27 And who of you by worrying & being anxious can add one unit of measure to his stature or to the span of his life? vs. 33 But seek (aim at & strive after) first of all His kingdom & His righteousness (His way of doing & being right), & then all these things taken together will be given you besides. So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow…

Titus 2:13 awaiting & looking for the [fulfillment, the realization of our] blessed hope, even the glorious appearing of our great God & Savior Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed one).

1 Thes. 4:16-18 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven… those in HIm, past & present will be caught up with Him in the air. Therefore comfort & encourage one another with these words. (read the whole scripture)

Rev. 21:4 God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; & death shall be no more. Neither shall there be anguish (sorrow & mourning) nor grief nor pain anymore, for the old conditions & the former order of things have passed away.

Rev. 22:12-17 He is coming quickly! Look for Him. Keep your eyes turned up toward His coming. He is coming for those who are looking for His coming. Rev. 22:7 Behold I come quickly… Heb. 9:28 …to bring to full salvation those who are [eagerly, constantly, & patiently] waiting for & exception Him.

James 7:7-8; John 14:2-3; Rev. 4:1; Rev. 22:20

     Forget the past, live in the now, and look for His coming. How we walk and live each day will either bring us closer or farther away for Him. We can not save ourselves, but we need to live and walk in Him or we will be deceived. Watch and pray! Keep alert! Keep your eyes on Jesus Christ & HIm crucified, ONLY. Do not be deceived!!!!

Freedom is not free!“Freedom Is not Free!”

     There are many types of fear. One that grips a lot of people today is the fear of failure. We try to be perfect because we don’t want to fail. We don’t want to fail our family, our friends, ourselves, and God. But this can steal your joy and can stop you from growing and going forward in God. 

     When you fear like this it will stop you from getting involved with something you were asked to do, because you are afraid to fail. God almost always ask you to do things that you can not do. He wants us to depend on Him. With fear of failure you won’t walk out on faith and just do what ever God ask you to do. You won’t take risk. This will limit you and your service for God. 

     The fear of failure can put one into depression. You feel though you let everyone down and that you are not worth anything. Once you are depressed it can be hard to come out of it. You have no motivation & little hope. Fear of failure has turned many to drugs and drinking. We must remember our life & who we are is not based on our success or failure. 

Many people have feared failure, Moses did. Exodus 4:10 (Amp.) 

“And Moses said to the Lord, O Lord, I am not eloquent or a man of words, neither before not since you have spoken to your servant, for I am slow of speech & have a heavy & awkward tongue.”

     One of the first things people do when they fear failure is to make excuses to why they can not do something. God does not want us to do this. Many times in the bible the first thing God says to people when He ask them to do something is Fear Not! He knows that people will not go forward and do the great things He has asked if they are afraid.  Fear hinders us from doing what God wants us to do. We must remember we are not to do anything in our own strength & wisdom. (do all things unto the Lord, You can do all things through Him)

God answer to Moses: “and the Lord said to him, Who has made man’s mouth? or who makes the dumb, or the deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now therefor go & I WILL BE WITH YOUR MOUTH & will teach you what you shall say.

See God is with us. He will teach us. He has made us who we are. He is our strength. 

Gideon was just like Moses. Judges 6:15

“Gideon said to the Lord, oh Lord, how Can I deliver Israel? (first we question God, then here comes the excuse) Behold, my clan is the poorest in Manasseh, & I am the least in my father’s house.”

But again God answers Him: “surely I WILL BE WITH YOU…” vs 23 “DO NOT FEAR”.

See God will always be with us. He will teach us and show us what and how to do what ever He ask us to do. 

     It is not what we do or not do that gives us relief from the fear of failure. It is because God sent His Son Jesus to die for us, so we could have life, even though we did not deserve it. He does not kick us our when we fail. He forgives us & cleanses us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)

     We have been justified and forgiven. He has succeeded, so it is not weather we succeed or fail that matters. It is what He did!! We have right standing with God because of what Jesus did at the Cross. 2 Cor. 5:21, Heb. 10:17.

Rom. 5:8 While we were yet sinners Christ Died for us. (We were failures, when he died for us)

Christ alone is the source of our peace. We do not need to fear failure, because He is our strength. 

Isaiah 64:6 For we all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteousness (OUR BEST DEEDS OF RIGHTNESS AND JUSTICE) is like filthy rags or a polluted garment; we all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities like the wind, take us away (far from God’s favor, hurrying us toward destruction).

     Our best deeds are like filthy rags. WOW! We go around Fearing failure and even our best deeds are like polluted garments. There is nothing we can do without God that means anything or is good for anything. (without Him we are nothing) So lets stop making excuses and lets stop fearing failure and lets “GO FORTH” and do what God has called us to do without fear!! He said He would be with us. He would provide for us. As He told Moses “Have I not made your mouth?” He can give us the words to say, the deeds to do, and the strength and wisdom to succeed. So do not let Fear of Failure hinder you. Let God be God and follow Him. He will not leave you, nor forsake you!!!!!

The devil has strategies & deceits that he uses against you. He has come to steal and kill and destroy. (Ehp. 6:11 [Amp.] & John 10:10)

1 Peter 5:8 Be well balanced (teperate, sober if mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of your, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour. 

Sometimes we forget that we have a real enemy trying to kill us. He is not just trying to make our life hard, he wants us to die & not just physically. He wants us to be separated from God & the people of God. He seeks to hurt you at your weakest point, hoping you will give up & turn from God. Hoping you will ust quit & that you will encourage others to quit too. We are an influence on others & we can pull others down with us. 

But be encouraged there is HOPE: 

The second part of John 10:10 says I (Jesus) came that we may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows.)

1 John 3:8 (Amp.) The reason the Son of God (Jesus) was manifest (visible, why He came) was to undo (destroy, loosen, & dissolve) the works the devil [has done & is doing].

What are some of the strategies of Satan? In my Husbands message “Satan’s final assignment he names a few: 

1) He attacks Truth

2) He attacks the message of the Cross – the object of our Faith (Jesus) 

3) He attacks our testimony

4) He tries to put FEAR on us

Some people are & have been help captive by the devil – 2 Tim 2:26 …having been held captive by him…

Satan is a seducer (deceiver) Rev. 12:9 Amp. He is a accuser of the brethren (Rev 12:10) He is the father of lies (John 8:44) He is a murderer (John 8:44)

Sometimes things do happen of our own making. You can’t always say “the devil made me do it”. We are drawn away by own own lust. But we need to realize we do have an enemy and what do we do about it. 

Eph. 4:27 (Amp.) Leave NO [such] room or foot hold for the devil [give NO opportunity to him]

Rev. 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb & by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. (be loyally faithful unto death [even if you must die for it], and I will give you the crown of life Rev. 2:10) 

We overcome Satan when we testify personally to what the Word of God says about what the blood of Jesus does & has done.

Our testimony must be our object of faith = which is the work of Jesus at the Cross & what He did there for us.

The blood of Jesus saves us. Satan wants to make you believe that there are many ways, BUT there is one “1” way to be saved & that is through Jesus and His blood & what He did at calvary for us. 

James 4:1-17 (read all) (in Amp. too) & 1 Peter 5:6-10

1) Humble yourselves

2) Submit to God

3) Resist the Devil

4) Draw near to God

5) Cleanse your hands

6) Purify your hands

7) Stand firm

(This all only can be done because of what Jesus did at the Cross for us)

Read Eph 6:10-18

Phil. 1:6 (Amp.) [not in your own strength] for it is God who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing & creating in you the power & desire] both to will & to work for His good pleasure & satisfaction & delight.

He gives you the want to & the ability!!!

Fight the good fight of faith, not the good fight of works.

1 Peter 5:6-10

Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the might hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you. Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind),  be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger] seeking someone to seize upon and devour. Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his  onset – rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined] knowing that the same (indentical sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood ( the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing & favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, WILL HIMSELF complete & ground you securely, & strengthen, and settle you. 

Remember HE has called you, HE will sustain you, HE has provided a way of escape & you must look to Him & Him only. JESUS IS THE WAY!!! HE IS THE ONLY WAY!!! HE IS THE ONLY WAY TO DEFEAT THE ENEMY & WIN!!!

This is a nice & cute statement, but not true. A lot of times we hear something & base our truths on that. But we need to look at what the Bible says about it & live by that. 

Fear is one thing that grips many people today. Fear is a bondage & Go does not want His people to be in bondage. He wants us to be free to walk with HIm unhindered. 

Lets look at some people in the Bible who experienced real events.

Numbers 13 The children of Israel were getting ready to go over to the Land of promise. Moses sent out 12 men to spy out the Land. After 40 days they returned with a report. 

They started the report by telling them what they saw. They said, “surely it flows with milk & honey, BUT…, there are giants in the land & they are stronger than us.” They even said there are giants & we were in our own sight as grasshoppers & so we were in their sight. 

So if we think as the so called phrase “False Evidence Appearing Real” we would act as if there were not giants in the land. It is true & real that there were giants in the land and that they were strong. We act as though we don’t have an enemy. Don’t acknowledge that enemy, because if you do then you don’t have faith. If you say it then it will happen. We DO have an enemy & he goes around as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devourer. So how do we look at this? First of all the spies should not have been sent out. God already told them that He promised them this land. The Land flowing with milk & honey. So no matter what word the spies came back with this land was to be theirs & that is what they should have acted on. There were 2 of the spies that said “for we are well able to overcome it”. These are the words of faith. Why were they well able, because the Lord was with them. We must believe Gods promises, not by denying that the enemy exists, but by believing what God has said & by looking to him for the strength. “Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.”

So when we say “False Evidence” that is not true. The evidence may show us the enemy, BUT GOD… we must remember what God has said & what He has promised & believe & act on that. The children of Israel saw the enemy, fear came & they aced on that then on what God had said.

Ex 14 was another time Israel greatly feared. They were coming out of Egypt. God told them to camp by the sea. He set them in a place where the enemy thought they had them cornered. BUT GOD said he would harden Pharaoh’s heart, so he could show the children of Israel that He had glory & honor over Pharaoh & all his host. Also, to show the Egyptians that HE IS LORD. 

Pharaoh brought all the chosen chariots to pursue the Israelites. When the Israelites saw (looked up) they were so afraid (they were exceedingly frightened). Was the evidence of the enemy real? Was what they saw real? Yes. It is not the fact that what we see or hear is not true, it is what has the Lord said & promised. Vs 13 Moses reminded them how to see the situation. “Fear not” (stop fearing) stand still (firm, confident, undismayed) & see the salvation of the Lord which He will work for you today. For the Egyptians you have seen today you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, & you shall hold your peace & remain at rest. Then the Lord told them to “GO FORWARD”. He had a plan of escape for them. He would deliver them. He would bring them through. The Lord moved between the Israelites & the enemy. The real facts were the enemy was after them. They could see that. But the truth is the Lord was with them. He would fight for them. He would go between them & their enemy. He would cause the enemy to flee. That is what the truth is. You can not just deny the evidence, BUT you rely on the truth that God WILL fight your battles & defeat the enemy. 

Lets do as David did in Psalms 27:1-14

The Lord is my light & my salvation WHOM shall I fear or dread? The Lord is the refuge & stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even my enemies & my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled & fell. Though a host, encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; thought war arise against me, [even then] in this will I be confident. VS 5 For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter, in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock. vs 13-14 [what, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living! Wait & hope for & expect the Lord; be brave & of good courage & let you heart be stout & enduring. Yes, wait for & hope for & expect the Lord.

Lets believe, wait, and look to the LORD.

Today you might be facing an enemy of sickness and you have fear. Some might tell you to say you are not the sick, you are the healed. They might tell you not to even mention the fact that you don’t feel good. (that is just FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL) Try tell that to a person who has cancer. One who has suffered so much that it is not real. We must look at the truth, not a cute little saying. The evidence is real. It is not that we are to deny the evidence & pretend that it is not there, we must look at what the word of God says and believe that. What does the bible say about healing and sickness. Isaiah 53:5 He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.  1 Peter 2:24 “by Whose stripes you were healed.” Psalms 107:20 “He sent His word, & healed…” Ex 15:26 “I am the Lord that healeth thee.” Ps 103:2,3 who healeth ALL my diseases…  There are many scriptures that talk about healing. If there were not sick people (because we believe that it is false evidence) then why are there so many scriptures that talk about people needing healing? 

We must not base our life and our beliefs on sayings that people make up. The fact is that the evidence is real, BUT, we must believe what the word says about that evidence. So when things come up, we must go to the word and see what God says about it. He has the final say. We must believe in what He has said. We look to Him for deliverance, for healing, for every need and trouble we face. We are over comers because of what Jesus did, we are healed because what Jesus did. Look to Him!!! Do not look to the evidence. Do not deny the evidence, just do let it stay, due to what the word says. DO NOT FEAR, ONLY BELIEVE!!!

It is not enough just to believe in God, the devils believe, fear, & tremble.

James 2:19 You believe that there is one God; you do well: The devils also believe & tremble.

To just believe that there is a God, is to believe like devils. This is what is going on today more than ever. Most everyone believes in God. They even pray. But it is a God of their own making. 

Yes, we must believe that He is: Heb. 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he who comes to God must believe that He is…

It is how we come to Him that matters. Many say that there are a lot of ways to God. That is a lie and is hurting so many people & damming their souls to hell. Many believe this way, “I am a good person, I can come to God, I believe in Him, I am OK.”

The truth is we are not OK. There are not many ways to God.

Rom. 3:23 For all have sinned, & come short of the Glory of God.

If you read on from there the bible tells you the answer. vs 24 being justified freely by His Grace through  the Redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God has set forth to be a propitiation (atonement or reconciliation) through faith in His Blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; to declare, I say, at this time His righteousness: that He might be just, & the justifier of him which believes in Jesus

John 14:6 Jesus said unto Him, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE; NO MAN COMES UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.

There is only one way & that way is through JESUS. We must believe & receive what Jesus did for us on the cross. Many want to go other ways because they are easier. They demand no change. Come as you are, be who you are, stay who you are & you will be saved. Sad to say that is what is going on today.

When you believe on Jesus & what He did at the cross, there will be a change in you. Yes, you come as you are, but you will not stay that way. He gives you righteousness, for unrighteousness. He gives you life for death. He gives you hope, where there is no hope. He makes you no guilty, where there is guilt. He gives you peace, to where there is torment. He gives you forgiveness to where there is no forgiveness. 

John 3”17 …that the world THROUGH HIM might be saved. 

Gal. 3:14 … THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.

Eph. 1:7 In Whom we have redemption THROUGH His Blood, even the forgiveness of sins…

1 Jn.. 4:9 In this was manifested the Love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live THROUGH Him (Jesus Christ).

Romans 10:9 That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, & shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. 

People base their salvation on their good works. I give to the poor, I don’t drink, I don’t steal, I am a good person… Those things won’t save you. We must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ!!

To believe is more that just thinking about Him or even to believe of Him. Many do that and aren’t saved. You must simply accept who Jesus is, which is the Son of God, & & what He did at the Cross of Calvary, He died for YOU.  He took your place, in order that you might be saved. Accept Him and Him alone as your Savior, making Him the Lord of your life and following after Him with all of your heart, mind, soul, & strength as long as you live. 

Read: 1 John 1:1-34; John 8:24; John 9:35-41; John 10:22-38; John 11:25-27; John 17:20-26; John 20:30-21; Romans 3:21-31; Romans 4:17-25; John 3:14-18, John 20:31

There are so many scriptures that talk about believing in Jesus & what He did for us at the Cross. He is the one and only way. There is no other way for man to be saved. 

Believe on Him today, receive Him today, Let Him be Lord of your life today: Today is the day of salvation. You do not know if you have a tomorrow. So make that decision to believe on the Lord Jesus TODAY!!!
