So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Isaiah 55:11

Is the world spinning out of control?

Are you troubled by the condition of our world and the moral decline of American culture?
Do you sometimes feel like the world is spinning out of control and about to expire? If the answer is yes,
you are not alone. We do live in troubled times, but there is a glorious message of hope and deliverance
for those of us who are listening.

Are you frustrated with the direction of your own life; no purpose, no self control, no peace of mind?
Do you have concerns about your eternal destiny? If the answer is yes, the following message is for you.

These are symptoms of the times in which we live and of the wayward condition in the heart of man.
Men have always been and still are under the illusion that they are in control of world events, the
affairs of nations and cultural change. Man's control only goes as far as is allowed by God.
If God were not sovereign, he would not be God. John Chapter 1
; Matthew 28:18-20

The truth is, we live in a fallen world as described in the Bible in
Genesis Chapter 3. The turmoil we see around us is increasing daily at an astonishing rate, but the world is not spinning out of control. God, our creator, has always been in control and always will be. He is not surprised, nor is he unprepared for the trouble man has created for himself. From a human perspective, there seem to be no answers and no end in sight to the violence, the poverty and the destruction caused by the violation of universal Biblical law. However, the Word of God tells us there is hope and there is an answer.

According to scripture, the corrupt world governing structure developing before our eyes is on a collision course with the new and final world governing structure under the kingship of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This new kingdom will be a theocracy, not a democracy. Some refer to the onset of this heavenly authority on earth as the Millennium. This will be a government decreed by a just and righteous King and he will portion authority to his redeemed.
Revelation Chapter 20

Revelation 20:6
Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall
reign with him
a thousand years.

The Bible is clear about a coming heavenly kingdom right here on earth.

Matthew 5:5 Jesus said: "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth."

Matthew 6:10 Jesus teaching his disciples the Lord's prayer: "...thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth
as it is in heaven."

Numbers 14:21 As the Lord spoke to Moses in the tabernacle: But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled
with the glory of the LORD.

Proverbs 29:2

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked bear rule, the people mourn.

It appears that we are in the final clutches of the Satanic dominance that has plagued the earth
since the fall of man
. According to scripture, judgment on an ungodly world is imminent.
The battle is raging. Cultural behavior patterns are polarizing everywhere in advance of the final battle for dominance. The establishment of the glorious reign of Christ on earth will spell the end of the Satanic influences and turmoil we are witnessing today. Revelation 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
In preparation for this new structure, God is calling those who will hear his voice to come back to him and surrender our will to his lordship and guidance. Without his guidance we would be aimless and lost in obscurity. Matthew 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
A fully righteous and just governing structure is coming, and the disciples of Christ will rule and reign with him in this exciting new earthly kingdom.
Revelation 5:10

And has made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Isaiah 32:1
Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.
Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Have you been called by God to take part in this glorious transformation and receive the gift of God--eternal life?

This transformation is twofold, and it begins with you. The end of the turmoil in your own life as well can mark a new beginning for you and those you love.
John 6:44
No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Luke 17:20-21
The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Who is Jesus Christ and why should we listen to him?

Jesus is our only access to God the Father.
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.
John 11:25-26
I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die.

Matthew 11:28

"Come unto me, all ye who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

When we look at the world around us, the only conclusion we can come to is that something is desperately wrong. The explanation for this condition is clearly spelled out in the Bible. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Man, in his natural unregenerate state, is separated from God our creator. Each of us has been born into that natural state as a consequence of man's rebellion to God at the beginning of creation. Man in his natural state, without being reborn spiritually, will consistently make wrong choices in concert with his unregenerate nature as he seeks to fill the void in his soul that only reconciliation with God can fill. John 3:3 When questioned by a Jewish leader; Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

We all need to be reconciled to God our Savior in order to have peace with him, to avoid judgment and bring proper perspective and conduct back into focus. God is righteous, sovereign and just. He has written the law and he has made all the rules because he is God and he is under no obligation to explain himself to us. We probably wouldn't understand the explanation anyway. He is intricately involved in his creation and therefore very much involved in our lives. His love for his creation is manifest in his word. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Because God has written the law, he must also fulfill the law to demonstrate his sovereignty, his righteous justice, the truth of his word and his love for mankind. Romans 5:8 But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. The law requires perfection in order to be reconciled to God or "born again" and enter into the presence of God. James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
Man, by his very nature, is incapable of meeting the demands of the law for reconciliation to God. That is why man needs a Savior or mediator to bridge that gap, one who is capable of meeting those requirements.
Romans 3:10-12
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understands, there is none that seeks after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; There is none that does good, no, not one.
The replacement for man's imperfection is the perfect and sinless sacrifice, Jesus Christ. By his blood sacrifice, his death on the cross and his resurrection from the dead, he followed his own rules, he fulfilled his own law and redeemed those who will hear his call from an eternal hell and eternal destruction. Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Our response in receiving the gift of God, is by first understanding and admitting that we are sinners and by faith recognizing Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord. We must humble ourselves, ask his forgiveness for our sins, begin a new life in repentance of our sins and receive by grace the perfect righteousness of Christ as payment for our sins; past, present and future. We do this by asking him to change us; by surrendering our corrupt nature over to his incorruptible will. According to scripture, when we do this with sincerity, we are reconciled to God. We are then given the mind of Christ; the law is written in our heart and the direction of our heart is changed. That is when our transformation from death to life begins. To reject this marvelous gift from God will result only in continued and increased frustration and eternal separation from God.

After the new birth, believers are still susceptible to sin as long as we inhabit this corruptible body of flesh, and that will not change until we are fully redeemed. (I Corinthians 15: 50-58) The difference is, that we will no longer indulge in or be servants to sin in our hearts once we have been reconciled to God through Christ the Lord. Therein lies the change and the freedom from the bondage of sin. We still possess the old sin nature, but now, we also possess a new nature which gives us the power to fight effectively against that which seeks to destroy us. 1John 2:1-2 My little children, these things write I unto you, that you sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.

The gospel of Jesus Christ is perceived as foolishness to those who perish, but it makes perfect sense to an open mind and heart yearning to find the one true God--Jesus Christ.1 Timothy 2:5 the only mediator between God and men.
1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

It is impossible for man to approach God intellectually. The arrogance and pride of man in his unregenerate state keeps him separated from God. The self-righteousness of man and all of his good intentions to gain favor with God are insufficient for reconciliation. God will only look upon and accept the righteousness of Christ.
Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Jesus is the only way to salvation and eternal life.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
1 Corinthians 1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Attempting to reach God by our own understanding is comparable to sheep attempting to comprehend the mind of their shepherd. That is why Jesus chose to use the analogy by comparing us to sheep. We can only approach an all knowing, omnipresent God through childlike faith by trusting his word, since man does not possess the intellect or the nature to fully comprehend God's judgments or his ways.
Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

We are all required to make a choice. We can't avoid it. We must make one of two choices and that
will determine our eternal destiny.
Matthew 6:24
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
We can either choose to reject Christ, be a servant to sin and inherit death; or choose to be free in Christ,
receive forgiveness and inherit eternal life.

2 Corinthians 6:2
In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.
Behold, now is the accepted time; now is the day of salvation.
Romans 10: 8-10
8 The word is near you, even in your mouth, and in your heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.
10 For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Allow God to penetrate your heart today and give you the peace and joy that forgiveness brings and only God can provide through faith in his son Jesus Christ. Begin your new life in Christ today! Unload that burden of guilt that weighs you down and discover that true freedom which can
never be taken from you.
John 14:27
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither
let it be afraid.

There are more than 20 major religions in the world today, with hundreds of subcategories. Christianity is the only belief system in the history of the world which acknowledges a righteous, loving Savior and King, willing to suffer horrific pain and humiliation and give his life to redeem mankind from eternal destruction. Religion, as defined by the world, is an invention of man and a demonstration in futility to try to reach God without fully confronting the issue of man's corrupt sin nature.

There is only one gospel of Jesus Christ, as it is presented in the Bible, and it is not religion as defined by a fallen world. The distinction between Christianity and all other belief systems is that the Christian faith is based on a covenant with God, freely given to anyone who will receive it, and a revelation from God to man that we are not justified by what we do for God but rather what God has done for us.

Christianity, unlike "religion", does not present us with a list of dos and don'ts to which we must adhere in order for God to accept us. What the Lord does tell us to do is to Love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul and mind and to love our neighbor as ourselves.
When we do this, we are obedient to his will, and the "Kingdom of God" is made manifest in our hearts.


Something to consider: If we have ever broken any of the ten commandments at any time in our lives, if we are without Christ, we are condemned already according to scripture and adrift in obscurity.

1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
