My Testimony

Hello to all many Born Again Brothers and Sisters in Christ I want to share my testimony I was baptized many years ago but I was not Born Again I was part of the world then  I was into politics and Mormon Glenn Beck was my idol but I now know the truth about Glenn Beck and Mormonism. I am a former Freemason God brought me out of Freemasonry and in 2015 I watched Pastor Greg Laurie California Harvest Crusade and I realize now I was a sinner in need of a Savior I prayed the prayer he offered and now I made a recommitment to follow Jesus Christ but I know that’s when I was truly Born Again and I know the prayer I prayed didn’t save me Jesus saved me. Now I am indwelt with the Holy Spirit I can feel His presence, He tells me if someone is a false teacher or not and He helps me understand the Word of God when I read it. I love being in church and around other Believers. I’m going to heaven not based on anything I have done or being a good person but because of what Jesus did for me dying on the cross and rising from the dead 3 days later. I am saved by grace through faith alone in Christ Alone! I know were I was I was into Freemasonry taking God’s name in vain and horoscopes and Harry Potter and many other things before I was Born Again and those things  I did before I was Born Again were and are demonic. But I know where I am now I know God and am in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ Who is my Savior and Lord of my life I have passed from Spiritual death to Spiritual Life from Hell to Heaven and am indewlt with The Holy Spirit and am covered By The Blood of Jesus Christ!

God Bless.

 

MARANATHA!

Hi, I am a Born Again Believer and Follower of The Lord Jesus Christ and saved by Grace through Faith and not by works and a Redeemed sinner and covered by The Blood of Jesus and I have a personal relationship with Jesus. An Evangelist who preaches the Gospel and I believe that Jesus came to the earth was born of a virgin died on the Cross for our sin and rose again from the dead 3 days later and is coming back very soon And Jesus is the God Man Fully God Fully Man And I believe the Bible is the Word of God and that Jesus is The Way and Only Way to get to God. Check out these Bible Verses. John 14:6 New King James Version (NKJV) 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 11:25-26 New King James Version (NKJV) 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 1 Corinthians 15:3-5 New King James Version (NKJV) 3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He was seen by [a]Cephas, then by the twelve. Ephesians 2:8-10 New King James Version (NKJV) 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Colossians 2:5 New King James Version (NKJV) 5 For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing [a]to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ. God Bless! MARANATHA!! Yet not I, but through Christ in me

      2. I read your comments on Geri’s. We should do everything in spirit of love. When the unsaved world uses OMG or Jesus Christ as a swear word I believe is blasphemy. As born again Christians O MY GOD can be used as a cry from our hearts to God. We see it in the Psalms

        Remember for my good, O my God, all that I have done for this people.

      4. When we are born again we have a new nature. We are a new creation in Christ . The only thing is that the old nature is still with us . When the Holy Spirit shows us our old nature popping up, like in your case always wanting to be right we need to pray seeking God to help us overcome so that we can be more like Jesus . I like your attitude towards the truth of God. We will never be perfect until Jesus comes back for us but we grow in santificación as we yield to the Holy Spirit daily, turn away from the things of the world, study diligently and have strong Christians to learn from . Jesus never said it would be easy but He said He will never leave us not forsake us. I will be praying . We need to pray all the time.

      5. Hi Crissy I wanted to share about what happened last year when the Lord spoke to some Mormons through me. I had a interesting talk with some Mormons last year. I asked them is Jesus God I think at first the didn’t understand I asked again I think they said yes I asked is Jesus the only way to get to heaven are we save saved by grace throught faith and not by works I don’t remember what else I said but is it unusual for them to say yes to those questions I asked? I didn’t plan on talking to them But God had other plans. I will pray that the Lord helps them see what I said is true because it is true because Jesus is The Truth. I stuttered a bit and I quoted Scripture to them like John 1:1 and others. I tried to quote Scripute as best I could I think i messed up a bit I think They were very nice. It was all Him not me at all!

But not all their followers want to hear the truth. Most of them are not even saved. They deceive many because they know not the Truth

      50. Regarding the different Bible translations, from GOT QUESTIONS

        BibleQuestion: “Does the inerrancy of the Bible only apply to the original manuscripts?”

        Answer: Only the original autographs (original manuscripts written by the apostles, prophets, etc.) are under the divine promise of inspiration and inerrancy. The books of the Bible, as they were originally written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21), were 100% inerrant, accurate, authoritative, and true. There is no Biblical promise that copies of the original manuscripts would equally be inerrant or free from copyist errors. As the Bible has been copied thousands of times over thousands of years, some copyist errors have likely occurred”
        When I study the Bible I sometimes use different translations to better understand the passage I am reading. For daily use I like the ESV translation and KJV😊

      51. Just be careful with what people say. You can get very confused when listening to everyone. Not all that call themselves Christians are. The enemy can create confusion so easily. We need to study the word so we can stand firm when he attacks our faith. One of my best friends uses the NKJV. To tell you the truth I have never heard anyone calling the NKJV as satanic. I use it for my studies. One translation that can’t be used for study is the “Message” it has been so watered down that it misses the mark if one is doing serious study.

      1. My own view is that I’m not as strongly sure about the rapture being Pre-Trib. I warn my congregation to make sure they are saved before His Second Coming, before the Great Tribulation and for that matter now before its too late for tommorow is not promised.

        Liked by 1 person

      2. Ok here it is is it was note from a Prophecy Update Pastor JD did I think. The doctrine is to be a comforting one 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
        The Tribulation is the outpouring of the wrath of the Lamb and God has not appointed us to wrath 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11
        The Rapture before the Tribulation is illustrated in Genesis 19, where we see angels delivering Lot and his family before the destruction of Sodom. 2 Peter 2:9 The word translated “temptations” is the same word translated “tribulation.”
        Rapture before the Tribulation is illustrated in Enoch, who was taken to heaven prior to the Flood Genesis 5:24 Noah is not a picture of the church, but of Israel, who will indeed go through the Tribulation and will at last come to Jesus as a result.
        Rapture before the Tribulation is illustrated in Daniel 3. When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego refused to worship Nebuchadnezzar, they were thrown into a fiery furnace. But were was their friend Daniel? Either he did indeed bow to Nebuchadnezzar-which is completely contrary to the rest of the book-or his omission is in itself a picture of the Rapture. Bible scholars believe that, very likely, he was away on official business as an emissary. All we know with certainty, however, is that he was taken out of the scene.
        1. Jesus told us that we would be raptured before the Tribulation Luke 21:36 How are we worthy? One way: We are worthy because of what Jesus did for us on the Cross of Calvary.
        2. Pre-Tribulation makes sense historically and scripturally. In accordance with Jewish custom when a man came of age to marry, he would add a room on to his father”s house for himself and his bride. When the addition was complete, and when the father gave the go-ahead, a trumpet would sound, and the bridegroom would meet his bride. Following the wedding ceremony, the bridegroom would take his bride to his father”s house, where they would be tucked away for seven days in the completed “bridal suite.” At the end of the seven days, the bridegroom would come out with his bride and introduce her to the community. That’s exactly what’s going to happen with us. Jesus, our Bridegroom, is preparing a place for us in Heaven, His Father”s House. John 14:2 At the appointed time known only by the Father, a trumpet will sound and Jesus will meet us, His bride, in the air to escort us up to the “Bridal Suite.” He has prepared for us. We will remain with Him in heaven for seven years before we are presented to the world, where we will rule and reign with Him.
        3. Pre-Tribulation Rapture follows the outline of the Book of Revelation. If you don’t embrace a Pre-Tribulation view, your understanding of Revelation becomes as twisted as a pretzel because you’re got to put chapters 4 and 5 after 11, if you hold to a Mid-Tribulation Stance; after chapter 19 if you take a Post-Tribulation point of view. Only a Pre-Tribulation placement of the Rapture allows for a consistent flow of the Book of Revelation.
        4. Pre-Tribulation Rapture allows for the conditional aspect of the Tribulation. Revelation 2:22 If the Rapture won’t occur until after the Tribulation, what would be the reason for this warning of Jesus? “Well, didn’t Jesus say in this world we would have Tribulation?” you ask. Yes but the crushing the believer goes through in the world is from Satan. The Tribulation of chapters 6-19, on the other hand, is from God as he pours out His wrath on a Christ-rejecting world. Folks, God will not allow anyone to get hit from both sides. If we experience tribulation in the world because of our faith, we will not experience Tribulation of those who have none.
        5. Pre-Tribulation Rapture allows for the unknown time of the Lord”s return. According to Daniel’s prophecy, three and a half biblical years (a Biblical year being three hundred and sixty days) from the day Antichrist enters the temple and demands worship midway through the Tribulation, the Lord will return. Consequently, if believers were on earth during the Tribulation, they would be able to predict the exact time of the Second Coming-three and a half biblical years, or forty-two months, or one thousand two hundred sixty days after the Antichrist enters the temple. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 Matthew 24:36 The problem is, 1 Thessalonians 5:2 and Matthew 24:36 make it clear that no one knows the hour of His coming. Therefore, it follows that believers must be absent at this time.
        6. The Tribulation is unnecessary for the church. Referred to as the time of Jacob”s trouble, the Tribulation targets Israel, for through it she will be awakened and at last see Jesus as the Messiah! Deuteronomy 4:29-30 The promises made to Abraham and to the Jewish people have not been forgotten. God will work with Israel in the days of the Tribulation. He will make Himself known to them-and they shall indeed be saved.
        7. Pre-Tribulation Rapture squares with the prophecy of Daniel. At the end of Daniel 9, Daniel was given the timetable for all of Jewish history in units of heptads, or weeks. It is clear from this all-important passage of Scripture that the sixty-nine weeks of Daniel prefer to the time between the commandment to rebuild the temple, was given in 445 B.C. By Artaxerxes and the coming of the Messiah, fulfilled perfectly on Palm Sunday when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. But Daniel was told “Seventy weeks are determined upon Israel.” To what does the seventieth week of Daniel refer to? To the Tribulation. You see the seventy weeks of Daniel refer to Israel. The church was not present for the first sixty-nine weeks. And seventieth week doesn’t begin until after the church is raptured. In other words, if the church was not present in the first sixty-nine weeks, why would she be present in the last week? She won’t. She’ll be in heaven.
        8. A Pre-Tribulation viewpoint makes one seek first the kingdom. (Matthew 24:45-46) Who is the one who will have authority and purpose in eternity? He who is watching for Jesus” coming. But this is impossible for those who believe the Tribulation precedes the Rapture because they must first watch for Antchrist, then the rebuilding of the temple, and finally Abomination of Desolation when Antichrist demands to be worshiped as God.

        Watch!
        Be Ready!
        Live for His coming!

        Your viewpoint concerning the Rapture very definitely affects how you live your life this side of eternity. If you do not believe in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture, you cannot look for Jesus Christ because, according to your eschatological viewpoint, Antchrist must appear first.

        Philippians 3:20

        1 John 3:3

        Be Watching and Be Ready
