Our Pastor’s Sermon about How to Respond to Fears and Anger in Last Days

My family did not get to make it to church last Wednesday, October 15, 2014. We tried to live stream the service but our computer just kept buffering, no matter what browser we tried to use.

The next morning is when I felt so led to share a couple of videos with you about not being afraid in these last days as we face so many serious health threats, increasing persecution in the world of believers in Jesus Christ and an alarming increase in evil, violence and wickedness.

I saw later on in the evening on Thursday that our church had posted the video of Pastor Kevin’s sermon on the Facebook page. I watched part of it Thursday night and the rest of it this morning. That is why I am adding these comments to the link for the sermon. I feel like this is confirmation of what the Lord is speaking to His followers and to those who love Him and listen to His voice. Please listen to Jesus and please do not be afraid or act out of fear or anger. The Bible does tell us to be angry but to sin not. The Bible tells us to not let the sun go down on our anger. Jesus tells us to love others as He loves us. Please take the advice of Pastor Kevin as he encourages us as the Bride of Christ and as His Church to guard our hearts and minds and to have the attitude and mindset of love – the love of Jesus – not only for each other but also for the lost.

Those who are acting out of what we see as being completely wrong or misguided are loved by Jesus. He is holding His arms out open wide and willing to receive those who want to repent from following their own ways and want to follow Him. Jesus came not to condemn but to redeem, to reconcile the lost to His Father, to forgive, to heal and to set the captives free. This is a spiritual battle and not one of flesh and blood. Our true enemy is not the person that is acting out, but the one who is called the accuser and the father of lies and the one who is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.

I’ll stop my own sermonette here and just encourage you to watch Pastor Kevin’s sermon and really listen to his heart on this. He can deliver the message far better than I. 🙂 ❤ God bless you and keep you in Jesus’ name.

Jeremiah 6 and 7 Could These Words Apply to American Christians? Call to Repentance for America?

Jeremiah 6:10-11a

10 To whom can I speak and give warning? Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear. The Word of the LORD is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it. 11a But I am full of the wrath of the LORD, and I cannot hold it in.

Jeremiah 6:15

“Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down when I punish them,” says the LORD.

Jeremiah 6:19

“Hear, O earth:     I am bringing disaster on this people,

the fruit of their schemes,

because they have not listened to my words

and have rejected my law.”

Jeremiah 6:29-30

29 The bellows blow fiercely to burn away the lead with fire, but the refining goes on in vain; the wicked are not purged out.      30 They are called rejected silver because the LORD has rejected them.

Jeremiah 7:1-15 (False Religion Worthless is the title in my Bible)

v4 Do not trust in deceptive words and say, “This is the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD.” v5 If you really change your ways and your actions and deal with each other justly, v6 if you do not oppress the alien, the fatherless or the widow and do not shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not follow other gods to your own harm, v7 then I will let you live in this place, in the land I gave your forefathers for ever and ever.

v8 But look, you are trusting in deceptive words that are worthless.

v9 Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury (swear by false gods), burn incense to Baal and follow other gods you have not known, v10 and then come and stand before me in this house, which bears My Name, and say, “We are safe” – safe to do all these detestable things? v11 Has this house, which bears My Name, become a den of robbers to you? But I have been watching! declares the LORD.

After reading those verses again as I share them here on the blog… I had handwritten them out when I came across them as I was reading Jeremiah on 8/6-9/14….  I am again hit with the realization that this could be said for us as America. I have studied American Literature in college and part of our reading assignments was to read authors who wrote early sermons from our history. Yes, America’s earliest authors were Puritans and Christians and men of God who felt led to come here to start a better life for their families. This land of America was a place where religious freedom would allow them to serve God in the way that they felt was true to His Word. This land was claimed for God by the first ones who came here to begin a new life with freedom for all men to pursue God without a king or a church forcing them to do it in a way that only benefited the ones doing the forcing…..

What I am getting at is that this country was founded upon Biblical principles and values by men and women of God. For me, I see America as nation for God just like Israel was and is a nation for God. Israel, at times, became complacent and downright rebellious towards the LORD and He punished them and then wooed them back to His side. America has done the same.

In this land of prosperity we have become greedy, full of pride and lust, full of injustice, murderous, turning away from the LORD and taking His Word out of every facet of the government and even our lives, addicted to anything and everything and we see evil strutting freely in the streets. Can anyone really believe that by turning our hearts and our children in the schools and everywhere else we turn – away from God – that we are better off today than we were before? Rises in crime, increases in poverty, decreases in jobs, more depression and anxiety, increases in prescription pain and anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications and less love for one another in general are not indicators that removing God from our lives is working.

With worldwide increase in man’s knowledge, scientific and technological advances, more understanding of how the human brain and body function, more knowledge of the universe and the minute atom, a multitude of behavior and sociological studies there is no end in poverty, no end in crime and no increase in love. As a matter of fact we see a return to barbarianism where in the name of religion there are those who are actually taking up blades of steel and beheading children – and much more…..

Is the answer to shun God and to turn away from Him? Has the answer been to deny that God exists? NO!

The same lie offered in the Garden of Eden has been perpetuated through the ages… did God really say?

Friends, we will face sure judgment if we do not repent. It is clear in God’s Word that if we humble ourselves and turn to Him and confess our wicked ways and turn from them – that He will hear from heaven, heal our land and forgive us. II Chronicles 7:14. Let us examine our hearts against the Word of God and ask Him to forgive us through the shed blood of Jesus, today. Let us confess with our mouths that Jesus is LORD and that He is risen from the grave. Let us turn to the LORD before judgment comes and not during or after… but even so… He accepts those that come at the 11th hour just as those who come at the 1st… so do not forget, TODAY is the day of salvation so do not harden your hearts to what you have heard, but rather accept Him, today…

(not meant to be a great piece of writing but sharing a great piece from my heart!) God bless you!

Sound the Alarm! Make Preparations! Man Is Not the Answer

Something that I, Angela, feel very strongly about –
one reason I got back up out of bed- (on June 29, 2014)
something that I think needs to be made known!

We do need to sound the alarm!

We need to trim our lamps and have an ample supply of oil and be ready for our bridegroom!
We do not know the day nor the hour!

If we don’t see the return of Jesus in our lifetime – what about our children??
Grandchildren?? Others who are lost??

Also – throughout the history of mankind, mankind has tried to do everything on his own. Those who reject God would like to eliminate the need for God, but they CANNOT.

Man does not have the answers!

Mankind on our own, in our sinful nature, bear forth no good fruit
we do not excel in love, purity, compassion, courage, generosity, patience, forgiveness, etc…

Human love is not enough
Modern medicine is not enough
Technology is not enough
Knowledge is not enough
Science is not enough
Scientific study is not enough
Government is not enough
Political ideology is not enough

We cannot create enough, sustain enough, heal enough, entertain enough, build enough, understand enough, feel enough, care enough…

Not to cure, heal, feed, house, clothe, govern, manage, sustain, love … enough …

of all of the problems in the world, which one have we completely ended?

God has allowed us to wander, to try to do these things on our own – globally, again – to advance again as high as our modern man-made or man produced anything could take us – so that we can see that we are not and will never be enough on our own to fix and solve and prevent our man-made human condition.

God has given to us the only solution and that is in JESUS CHRIST!

(Trim our lamps and have an ample supply of oil refers to Matthew 25:1-13. Also refers to dying to ourselves, taking up our crosses, living for Jesus and being filled with the Holy Spirit and having a fresh anointing every day and for every task.)

Watch “Wake Up Call” on YouTube

Wake Up Call:

I was awakened right after falling asleep with this on my heart. I have had this message on my heart for a while but we didn’t have our computer and we (I) have been distracted. But this could not wait any longer for me to be ready to sit down and share. So, I stepped outside on our porch and recorded the video on my phone so that I wouldn’t disturb anyone that was asleep in the house, lol.

 

The message is important! Jesus is returning. He may not return until long after I have passed away due to a natural death. But, He may return sooner than we think. You know, I just remembered something that came to me the other day. We are told in the Word that in the Last Days it will be as in the days of Noah. We are told that people will be eating and drinking and marrying and will think nothing of the Last Days. There will be no fear of what is to come. I wondered whenever I was younger how that could be so. I wondered how there could ever be a day when the world would not be looking for the Second Coming of Jesus.

Did you know that I think that there are even many Christians (or those who consider themselves to be followers of Jesus), today, who are not really looking for Jesus to return anytime soon? Everyone seems to think that since no one knows the day nor the hour except for the Father, that the day is a long way off and that there is not even a reason to worry about it. I tell you that Jesus told us to watch and to be diligent in following Him. Think about the parable of the 10 virgins who were waiting for the Bridegroom to return. Half of them were caught unprepared for his return and were left outside the gates and were not allowed to enter the wedding banquet.

There have been so many false prophets that have proclaimed a certain day or year for the Rapture to take place that many hear warnings of this being the Last Days and shrug it off. This is one way that we have a time where no one takes this seriously.

More to come later about all of these things, but for now, I must get some sleep. God bless you and keep you! Thanks for reading and for watching our videos. Most of all, we pray that you know Jesus!

We Need God in America, Again – Carman Song – Video & Performance by Al Mahan

Lyrics found on songlyrics.com:

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson
Samuel Adams, First Chief Justice John Jay
Names synonymous with the spirit of our country
Founding fathers of the U.S.A.

Over 200 years ago they shook off the chains
Of tyranny from Great Britain, by divine call
Citing 27 biblical violations, they wrote the declaration
Of Independence with liberty and justice for all

But something happened
Since Jefferson called the Bible the cornerstone
For American liberty then put it in our schools as a light
Or since “Give me liberty or give me death”, Patrick Henry said
Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ

We eliminated God from the equation of American life
Thus eliminating the reason this nation first began
From beyond the grave I hear the voices of our founding
Fathers plead “You need God in America again”

Of the 55 men who formed the constitution
52 were active members of their church
Founding fathers like Noah Webster who wrote the first dictionary
Could literally quote the Bible chapter and verse

James Madison said, “We’ve staked our future on our ability
To follow the ten commandments with all our heart”
These men believed you couldn’t even call yourself an American
If you subvert the word of God

In his farewell address, Washington said, “You can’t have
National morality apart from religious principle,” and it’s true
‘Cause right now we have nearly a 150,000 kids carrying guns
To these war zones we call public schools

In the 40’s and 50’s student problems were chewing gum and talking
In the 90’s, rape and murder were the trend
The only way this nation can even hope to last this decade
Is to put God in America again

The only hope for America is Jesus
The only hope for our country is Him
If we repent of our ways, stand firm and say
We need God in America again

Abe Lincoln said ‽The philosophy of the schoolroom
In one generation, will be the philosophy of government in the next”
So when you eliminate the word of God from the classroom and politics
You eliminate the nation that word protects

America is now number one in teen pregnancy and violent crime
Number one in illiteracy, drug use and divorce
Everyday a new holocaust of 5,000 unborn die
While pornography floods our streets like open sewers

America’s dead and dying hand is on the threshold of the church
While the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah vex us all
When it gets to the point when people would rather come out
Of the closet than clean it, it’s the sign the Judgment of God is gonna fall

If there’s ever been a time to rise up Church it’s now
And as the blood bought saints of the living God proclaim
That it’s time to sound the alarm from the church house
To the White House and say, ‽We want God, in America, again”

We need God in America, God in America again
I believe it’s tie America to stand up and proclaim
That ‽One nation under God” is our demand
And send this evil lifestyle back to Satan where it came from
And let the word of God revive our dying land

For Jesus Christ is coming back again in all his glory
And every eye shall see him on that day
That’s why a new anointing of God’s power’s comin’ on us
To boldly tell the world ‽You must be saved”

Because astrology won’t save you, your horoscope won’t save you
The Bible says these things are all a farce
If you’re born again you don’t need to look to the stars for your answers
‘Cause you can look to the very one who made those stars

History tells us time and time again
To live like there’s no God makes you a fool
If you wanna see kids live right, stop handing out condoms
And start handing out the word of God in schools

The only hope for America is Jesus
The only hope for our country is Him
If we repent of our ways, stand firm and say
‽We need God in America again”

The only hope for America is Jesus
The only hope for our country is Him
If we repent of our ways, stand firm and say
‽We need God in America again”

We need God in America
We need God in America
We need God in America again
America again
