It is must, not can. Monday May 5th, 2003
Why is it so difficult for so many to be honest and tell people that they can not be Christians if they are not Born Again? Jesus said: Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Not, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man consider being born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
It would seem that there are more so called Christians out there preaching the horrors of tobacco than there are Christians preaching the absolute damnation of all those who are not Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians.
Let me make something absolutely clear to you, you are not going to hell for using tobacco, you are not going to hell for looking at pornography, you are not going to hell for using drugs or even murder, you will absolutely spend eternity in the lake of fair, in absolute damnation, in absolute and utter separation from God, for not being a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian.
There is no place called purgatory, there is eternal salvation in heaven with the Lord and His tat are Born Again Christians. And there is eternal damnation in the lake of fire with satan and his minions. There is only one way to avoid the absolute certainty of eternal damnation in the lake of fire, and that is through being Born Again.
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him (Jesus) should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. 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.
And this is the condemnation, that Light (Jesus) is come into the world, and men loved darkness (satan) rather than Light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the Light, neither cometh to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. (John 3)
Do you see anything in the above Scripture that suggest that there is either a choice or any way to salvation other than through being Born Again?
And as they (the Apostles, Peter and John, maybe more) spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them, being grieved (upset, mad, furious) that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
And they laid hands on (arrested) them, and put them in hold (the dungeon) unto the next day: for it was now eventide. Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand. And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes, and Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem. And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, "By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?"
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them;
"Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, if we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole, Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole.
THIS (Jesus) IS THE STONE WHICH WAS SET AT NOUGHT OF YOU BUILDERS, WHICH IS BECOME THE HEAD OF THE CORNER (church) (Psalm 118:22). Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must (can possibly) be saved." (Acts 4)
Do you see anything in the above verses from Acts that even hints that salvation is through any other than the name of Jesus?
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him (Jesus) shall not be ashamed(be damned) . (Romans 10:9,10,&11)
If you are truly a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian and you are not putting your foot down when others claim to be Christians yet also say that they are not Born Again, then you are letting an excellent chance to evangelize pass by. Do you ever go to the Lord in prayer and say something like this: "Lord, he won't listen to me, please let someone talk to him who he will listen to." Well, if you go to the Lord with request like that and I go to the Lord with request like that, what makes you think that countless other solid Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians don't as well? And what makes you think that you are not the one God has sent to that person, in answer to another's prayers, to preach salvation through being Born Again?
Stop hiding your Christianity in the closet, for heaven sakes even the homosexuals have come out of the closet, why are so many Christians still hiding their love of the Lord under a basket or in a closet.
Let me remind you of something, read this carefully and let it sink in: But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 10:33)
Do you understand what Jesus is saying in that one verse? If He were sending you and e-mail it would look like this:
Dear Your Name,
If you, deny Me before men, I will deny you before God the Father in heaven!
Yours truly, seriously and in absolute truth,
Lord Jesus help us start putting You first.
Lord God Creator of all things, we, the people of the USA, give Thee thanks for giving us the second chance we do not deserve. We thank Thee Lord for our brave troops who are at this very instant freeing and liberating people through out the kingdom of satan. Amen. And Lord we beseech Thee that Thou would send to our men a Paul, to preach Your word to them before they go to free those held captive by the forces of evil left by Saul. Touch the Presidents heart Lord, lead him in a direction to send evangelist to our troops, give him the strength Lord to serve You, to use his office, that You have entrusted him with, as Commander in Chief to authorize and send solid evangelical Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian evangelist preachers to bring the Word of God to our troops, giving them both reason to fight and the Lord's plan of salvation.
Lord Jesus, it is in Thy Sacred and Holy Name I pray, Amen.
All Scripture is quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
