The medical definition of death is the irreversible cessation of all vital functions. Especially as indicated by permanent stoppage of the heart, respiration and brain activity. A doctor confirms death when listening to the heart and lungs of a patient. There is absence of heart beat and rise and fall of the chest.
Have you thought about death? How long you will be on this earth? Nobody knows how long they will be alive. One day you are here and the next minute you may die from a fatal accident. Do you know where you will go after dying? We all were created by our Creator God and he created you for a purpose and has numbered your days on this earth.
What meaning does life and death have? What if you worked your whole life just thinking of yourself, accumulating a bunch of “stuff” and then one day it was over.
What if you didn’t believe there was a God? OR believed in a false god? What if you placed your hope in nothing and didn’t believe in anyone or anything? What if you were wrong?
Well in Corinthians 4:4 it says:
The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.
You see there is a time and purpose for everyone and everything.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. (Ecclesiastes 3)
Your days on this earth are numbered. Your eyes saw my unformed substance, in your book were written everyone of them the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. (Psalm 139:16)
Everyone’s days are determined by the Lord and appointed by him.
It doesn’t matter how much money you have, have gone to every doctor searching for a cure. God determines the length of days on the earth. Do you not know what tomorrow will bring? What is life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. (James 4:14)
Jesus took the sting of death and went to hell and took back the keys from the devil. ( 1Corinthians 15:55)
When you place your hope and trust in Jesus Christ and believe in your heart that he died for your sins, that he rose from the dead and gave you eternal life you are saved! When you cry to the Lord In your troubles he will deliver you. ( Psalm 107)
“Truly, Truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes in him sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgement, but has passed from death to life” (John 5:24)
There are many people that are searching and seeking for truth, for meaning in life!
What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? (Mark 8:36)
What if you placed your Hope in the devil, lived for yourself and did not believe in Jesus?
What if you are on your death bed and have denied Jesus your whole life? There is still hope if you turn to the ONE that saves. I pray that the veil will be removed and Jesus would show him self to you as the Way, the Truth and Life.
Prayer: Father God I’m sorry for doing things my own way. Take off the blinder that has been blinding me from knowing you. I ask for you to forgive me of my sins and cleanse them with your blood. I want to live eternally in heaven with you,when I leave this earth.Forgive me for my unbelief. I believe you have prepared a place for me in heaven. I ask you to come inside my heart and I want to live for you all the days of my life I believe you died on the cross for my sins and I believe you rose from the dead.You are the Resurrection! I pray this in Jesus name Amen️
STAND OUT We are called to “STAND OUT” As a born again believer in Christ Jesus we are called to stand out and BE separated from the world. We are to be separated in our thoughts, actions, and ways of the world. Are you aligning with God’s ways? I was thinking of many in the Bible Mary, Esther, David, Isaiah.. that were called out and walked with God. God doesn’t expect us to be perfect, we may stumble at times but he is calling each one of us that have proclaimed Jesus as our Lord and savior to be separated to him. James 4:4 You adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is ... Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Wow! That’s pretty straight forward huh? Being called an adulteress? Think of a marriage if our spouse would cheat with another person? That is adulterous! Well God doesn’t push things under the rug, he has even said on one of the commandments “Do not have any other gods before me” By placing someone or something above God almighty is considered adultery in God’s eyes. You may be thinking, how on earth when I live on this planet can I live separate? Does that mean I hide in a cave or under a rock? Absolutely not! We are to shine our light brightly and not hide under a bushel in the midst of the darkness taking place in the world. If therefore your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, it will be wholly full of light, as when the lamp with its bright shining gives you light." — Luke 11:33– 36, ... Taken from GOT Questions? This explains below from scripture what it means to be separated and called out. Second Corinthians 6:17 says, “Therefore, come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord; do not touch any unclean thing, and I will welcome you” (CSB). The clause come out from among them is a reference to a passage in Isaiah. Isaiah 52:11 speaks of the Israelites who are returning from exile in Egypt. (When Jerusalem fell, many of the people were carried away to Babylon, but some of the people fled to Egypt, thinking they would be safe there. Jeremiah warned them not to do this, but many of them went to Egypt anyway, and they took Jeremiah with them against his will. See Jeremiah 42 – 43.) In Isaiah 52, God is promising to call back to the Promised Land the descendants of those who went down to Egypt. The command to “come out from among them” is also an effective call. The people of Israel are commanded to forsake any idolatrous habits they may have picked up while in Egypt and to return to the Promised Land; at the same time, it is a promise that God will be the one to bring them back when the time is right. Peter said”You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. A people for his own possession that you may proclaim the excellences of him who called you out of darkness into the marvelous light” 1 Peter 2:9 How do we walk in the light and be called out and be separated from a world that is so full of sin? By submitting ourselves to God then we can resist the temptations of the enemy. James 4:7 We can surrender each day to Jesus and listen for the Holy Spirit to direct our steps each day. Recognize who are you listening to and what are you thinking? Who are you agreeing with each day? Who are you surrounding yourself with? 1 Corinthians 15:33 Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good character." Who you choose to invite into your circle of life closely can either be an encouragement or bring you deception and evil. Choose today to weed out the ones that are not encouraging you and move toward the ones that steer you toward God’s ways. Renew your mind each day and don’t be conformed to the worlds ways. Romans 12:2 NIV - Do not conform to the pattern of this - Bible Gateway Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's. Take every thought captive and set your mind and things that are above . 2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God,(A) and we take captive every thought to make it obedient(B) to Christ. The devil would try to lie to us and place thoughts in our mind that aren’t good. As a believer in Christ we must recognize the schemes of the enemy and NOT be ignorant of his ways. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 Prayer: Father God we come to you today recognizing in of ourselves we are weak, but we are strong IN you. You said, your sheep hear your voice so help me to recognize your voice over the enemies voice. I surrender to your ways and take every thought captive and renew my mind to your ways. You have called me out to be separate and walk in your ways. I will shine brightly for you. Help me to resist temptation when it comes my way. I want to live for you all the days of my life. In Jesus name AMEN
What is life?
Life to so many people doesn’t even seem to matter! The shootings of innocent lives taking place, abortions on demand,euthanasia of a person suffering. Who do we think we are taking someone’s life like they are a piece of trash and has no meaning like they are worthless?
Whoever has the SON has life! Whoever does not have the SON of God does not have life.
I believe every thing starts in our hearts. Our hearts are deceitfully wicked, only God knows our hearts fully.
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things
and beyond cure.
Who can understand it?
John 14:6 Jesus answered.”I am the way and the truth and the LIFE” No one comes to the Father except through me”
God is the Giver of LiFE!
As a believer in Christ, he is the one that holds my days in his hands.
Job 1:21 He said “Naked I come from my mother’s womb and naked shall I return.The Lord have and the Lord has taken away”
Life can be so fragile not knowing what can happen each day, a sudden car accident, life threatening illness can occur in a moments notice.
Psalm 139:16 declares our days are numbered.
All the days ordained for me are written in your book before one of them came to be.
Each person is important to God.
He is our creator and has a plan. A destiny planned for each of us.
You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
Psalm 139:16 NLT
Recently I was listening to the song”He knows my name” He knows my name and he knows me personally, my fingerprints, my laugh, my tears and my pain.
Such a sweet reminder of how we are seen and known by God.
The world has gotten so twisted in their believes of life and death. Swaying far left from the Bible.
Offering Abortion, Euthanasia like as items on a menu. We are truly in a time where many has fallen away from knowing God’s ways and doing what’s right in their own eyes.
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart.
It’s hard to believe that their are organized groups, one called “shout your abortion “ that encourage woman to share their abortion story like one that would share their birthing story! CRAZY!
What has happened to our moral structure of today that people think it’s ok to murder your baby.
Many in the media have twisted “abortion” to normalize it in society. I see NOTHING normal or happy about having your baby sucked out of your uterus and a metal instrument being used to break apart your baby. Or how about in a 3rd trimester abortion where the neck of the baby may be punctured to make sure they are not breathing when delivered.
Sorry about the graphics but there’s no easy way of saying the truth how these horrendous acts are done. Woman are not told or choose not to be told about these abortion procedures. The Truth needs to be continued to be told that this is a LIFE that was created for a purpose. LIFE involves a PERSON and a person is a person no matter how small!
If you are reading this and considering abortion today, please contact a local nonprofit pro-life pregnancy center today to learn the facts of your baby growing on your womb today! ️
In this world we will have tribulation, but be of good cheer HE(Jesus) has overcome the world! (John 16:33)
The kingdom of God suffered violence and the violent take it by force! (Matthew 11:12) ESV
God wants us to ARISE and not be wimps in the spirit, to know who you are and to whom you belong!
He has given us tools, weapons though PRAISE and PRAYER! To know who you are in Christ and to arise in the kingdom of God!
We are in a spiritual battle in this earth today between lightness and darkness. We are to stand and shine our lights brightly!
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:5) NIV
I have seen in the spirit 2 swords crossing one another and a mighty battle taken place between lightness and darkness.
Take back what the enemy has stolen! For you are a child of God and a joint heir with Christ Jesus!
For I went to the enemy camp and I took back what he stole from me!
Singing that old time song! Believe it saints and watch how things shift in the spirit!
Prayer: Father forgive me for forgetting who I am and whose I belong to! I am a child of God and you are my ABBA Father! I ask that you would give me the strength to stand on your Word and to not be moved by circumstances for greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world! I will praise and pray violently for the kingdom of God knowing that I have the VICTORY in you Jesus! Amen
