A Leap of Faith…Ya Think?! :: By Don Twobears

My Friends, I am guessing by the current events taking place nowadays, it is time to look at the Holy Word of God concerning the Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ…once again! The Rapture is very, very, close at hand! It could be today, tomorrow, next week… point is… HE is coming!

So, we need to look at the Scriptures once again and assure this world of this coming event that will change everyone’s life! One way or the other, everyone will either go with Jesus Christ in the Rapture, or they will remain right here on Earth. As the Scriptures have pointed out, it will be one way or the other… that is a stated fact! It’s alright for you to say, “That’s just Religious Mumbo-Jumbo!” But one day, you’ll stand before Jesus Christ, your Baby-Browns to HIS Baby-Browns, and you will sincerely wish you had never had that thought! You will know exactly where you are headed, and you will groan and pray you had given your life to HIM. At that point, it will be too late to change, too late to argue the point, too late to make the changes in this life. This is Biblical Fact, my Friends!

The Lord implores you, with Love and kindness, to come to HIM and be saved. Just do me a favor and remember that only a FEW will find the narrow gate to Heaven!

John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him 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.”

It is the Holy Word of God that says only a FEW will find the narrow Gate to Heaven.

Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it.”

That very small word FEW! Becomes scary… IF YOU are not saved to Jesus Christ! That also means you will not be going in the Rapture! That means you are currently headed for Hell and the Lake of Fire! Please remember, I did not say this; the Holy Word of God says it, from God’s own lips to your ears! If you do not currently belong to Jesus Christ… then you need to change that. The Lord God gives you until the day you die to accept HIS Salvation through HIS Blood from the Cross. The obvious next question IS… what day will you die… do you know?!

1 Thessalonians 5:2-3 “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”

There it is in Black and White and has been there for over 4,500 years. That means you have had more than enough time to pick up the Scriptures and read them, to know what is coming. It is then up to you to make the best possible choice and accept Salvation through Jesus Christ and HIS work on the Cross of Calvary. In other words, my Friends: NO Jesus Christ… NO Heaven! It’s that simple. Either your Sins have been covered by HIS Blood… or they have NOT. Jesus Christ the answer…there is no other way!

It matters little what religion you are, or where your home is, whatever Country… what matters is… do you or do you NOT belong to Jesus Christ. I can NOT stress this enough, my Friends… again… NO Jesus Christ… NO Heaven… Period! When you see Jesus Christ, HE will not debate this with you; HE will not allow you to change anything… because your name is either in the Lamb’s Book of Life…or it is NOT. That, my Friends, is absolute TRUTH.

The majority of my Family has been saved to Jesus Christ. Having said that, I want to go to Heaven, first to meet and Glorify my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Then I want to see my Family there in Heaven… It’s difficult to wait. Yet I am assured by the Holy Word of God, that day is coming for me and many, many others as well. All Praise be to the Lord God for HIS Love!

I Love my Home and my Family dearly, yet I can hardly wait for the Lord Jesus Christ to call me home in the Rapture! I do indeed have a problem; my Heart hurts for those that do not know Jesus Christ and are not headed for Heaven. And yet, the Holy Word of God is very specific; everyone has had a chance during this life to Accept Jesus Christ. It has been their choice; they belong to the Lord God or they do not. Can you imagine all the excuses that are going to be stated, useless excuses at that, because it will not change their destination? It scares me to no end, being condemned to Eternal Destruction and knowing it was my own fault! It was my own choice!

I hope and Pray that you are headed for Heaven. You do realize that in Hell there is NO Hope ever again… NO chance to get out… or to change a single thing… that was your choice while alive on Earth!

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

You Want It, Ya Gotta Ask for It! :: By Don Twobears

My Friends, we have so many things that we want every day, and yet, so many of us don’t have those things. Why is it that so many of us are not Happy or Joyful?

Is it because we like being Unhappy and Grumpy? You would be surprised to know, there are many that prefer to be Unhappy and to be Grumpy. How is this useful to you or anyone else? Yes, there are times when we need to be serious, yet, why can we not be joyful at the same time? Let’s see here, what was that saying, “A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down?” (as in the movie Mary Poppins.) The point is, life is better when there is happiness and joy in it!

It’s like waking up one morning and you feel great! You come bounding out of that bed with vigor and vitality, ready for the day! So when this happens to you, is there sadness on your face, despair in your heart? Of course not! You wake up feeling like you could do anything possible…right? What does the Holy Word of God tell us?

Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”

The Lord God is telling us to seek HIM. It’s right there in Black and white, so why do so many people fail in this pursuit of happiness and Joy? Here another passage of Scripture, that explains exactly that:

James 4:3-4 “Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”

I had Total Left knee Replacement surgery 2 1/2 months ago, and yes, indeed it hurt! Yet, at the same time, I was joyful unto the Lord for a new knee that would no longer cause me pain. I can remember, I would walk around for about 15 minutes, and then I would need to find a chair; otherwise, some very bad pain. After surgery, I knew I would experience pain, but that pain would be short-lived. That pain would be temporary at best, so now I have no more knee pain; I can walk and not be weary. Praise the Lord!

So, what is the problem? Why are so many people having trouble, having pain and suffering? What does the passage of Scripture above say?! Did they ask the Lord to begin with? Or have they Asked Amiss?” What?! How does one ask amiss? Let’s begin with the most obvious; do you belong to Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? If not, then you need to fix this! And then we come to another tough one; Do you have unforgiven Sin in your life? And that is just the very first 2 hurdles that must be jumped, but they are critical hurdles!

If you belong to Jesus Christ, you have every reason to be happy! Your home is in Heaven with HIM. This life is temporary, short lived at best…right? Since you are here right now, would you prefer to be happy? Then you must choose that happiness over despair! Point being, you need to ask for happiness and Joy in your Life. In other words, don’t ask amiss! You need to have asked the Lord God to forgive you of all your Sin. Then you need to “Seek HIS Joy in your life”! Remember, you don’t ask, you won’t receive, but you must ask in a correct manner.

I have enjoyed going to parks before where you hear music playing, children running all about and playing. There is Joy and happiness there, am I not correct? This happiness and Joy is infectious, and I have watched people become happy once again. Old folks sitting there remember when they were young and playing, and a smile crosses their face. No one sits there and remembers when they Ate dirt for food and mud for drink and were beat every day! Am I correct? You know I am!

If you want to be happy and filled with Joy in your Life…Then ASK FOR IT! Ask the Lord in Prayer to bring Joy and Happiness into your life, but first you must be in the correct condition before you go before the Lord God. Then make your petition known to the Lord. HE already knows what you want, but like any good Father, HE wants to hear you ask for it. HE wants to talk with you, HE wants a relationship with you, HE loves to spend time with you, and it is HIS Joy to make you happy! So, what are you waiting for!? Right?

With Jesus Christ in your Life, there is nothing to fear, nothing to be sad or unhappy about! Again, this life is short; why would you want it to be anything but happy? Am I making sense here? In my mind, we already have enough grief to go around, enough unhappiness to be had, but…is that how you want your life to be? If you don’t ask, you will never receive; and if you choose to not seek, you will never find. That is in the Holy Word of God! Go ahead and make it happen right now! What do you have to lose? No one likes being sad and unhappy.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
