Please Be Advised :: By Candy Austin

The term “Please Be Advised” is more than just simply being informed about something. It carries a heavier connotation of giving some acute advice and awareness.

For example, every true minister of Christ is trying to convey through the power of the Holy Spirit to give the lost this opportunity, which is to “Please Be Advised” on the most important subject we will ever have to consider – the salvation of our souls!

This topic is more than just some valuable information to be advised about; something as crucial as this is to then take responsibility and heed, internally speaking. The advice taken should be to become aware of our need for a Savior, to choose to decide to believe in what Jesus did by shedding His blood for the remission of our sins!

Many false teachers and preachers over the years tend to add to God’s Word by saying that we have to do this or that (works) in order to be saved. The True Biblical Way to eternal salvation is simply to do one thing… ‘to believe’ (genuine saving faith belief) in the finished work of Christ!

Acts 16:30-32 “And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.”

This is not just a type of understanding or general mental consent of facts. This is a true, genuine, heart and mind-saving belief in the truth of God’s Word, in the Lord Jesus Christ, and in His Gospel Message!

After we are genuinely saved, then works will follow. A person who has been born again will no longer desire to serve self and/or Satan. The true believer will have ‘new affections’ and will then desire to serve and please Almighty God, Elohim (God with us), the Lord Jesus Christ (Yeshua Hamaschiach), the One True God of Abraham, Isacc, and Jacob to be exact!

John 6:29 “Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”

“Not everyone who says, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, only those who do the will of the Father (which is to believe in the One He has sent).

In these Last Days, when the world is growing ever so darker, it is beyond encouraging to find that some young people in these remaining minutes and hours still have a heart and soul for the Lord!

A case in point is these college-aged ladies who play softball and have been winning games left and right as of late. Commendably, they are boldly and wisely using their notoriety and media platform to give all the success, honor, and glory to none other than the Lord Jesus Christ!

Matthew 10:16 “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”

Way to go, brilliant and precious ladies! For it is written that we are to be wise as serpents and innocent/harmless as doves! This was so awesome and bold for the Lord that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share. Mainstream media surely isn’t going to shine a spotlight on something as spiritually profound in a Holy way as this!

Also, for added knowledge, encouragement, and edification, for example, our ‘go to’ on Saturday mornings is Pastor/Brother James Knox’s YouTube Channel. We tune in for his 15 to 30-minute verse-by-verse and chapter-by-chapter Bible study series. He adheres to the KJV, and his teachings truly educate and bless us every time!

Further, here are some songs that have recently touched my heart and one my husband likes as well. If any of my articles bless you in any way, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We can all use some encouragement from time to time.

Once again, to anyone who may need it… “Please Be Advised” of the truth of the Gospel Message because none of us are promised another day. May God richly bless you in growing in the knowledge of Him. For we are to grow in Spirit and in Truth so we can worship Him in Spirit and in Truth as true worshippers do!

John 4:23-26 “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.”

Until next time… Maranatha!
