Success in Jesus

I have found so TRUE that as we ALL meditate, trust in settle our Faith in the word of God & lean not to what is going on in this world, or our finances, or our health, or our school, or anything that would so easily distract us from the call of God & what God is preparing us for. But to trust the Lord with ALL our heart & truly REST in knowing God is on the throne & still in control!

I was thinking the other day about “Moses” & how he lived the best life one could only dream of, hope for, pray for. He lived as royalty in the castle! But before he was born God had a plan (design) for his life & it was BIG! You know the story so I wont go in to that—But, God brought him out of his comfort zone into the desert for 40+ years while he was in training for the call God had on his life. SO THE TRAINING YOU ARE GOING THROUGH RIGHT NOW MIGHT SEEM VERY UNCOMFORTABLE, But God will get you through this & you will walk in victory & success in ever area of your life!

My thoughts are the thoughts of the diligent which tend ONLY to plenteousness, Therefore I will not fret or have any anxiety about anything! But in everything by the POWER OF PRAYER & PETITION (DEFINITE REQUEST) with thanksgiving continue to make my WANTS know unto YOU LORD! And your peace which transcends ALL understanding shall garrison & mount guard over my heart & mind in Christ Jesus!

Today I shall be transformed by the renewing of MY mind, which may prove what is that good & acceptable & perfect will of God! Your Word, Lord shall not depart out of my mouth; but I shall meditate on it day & night that I may observe to do according to ALL that is written therein; for then I shall have good success!

Philippians 4:13

I can do ALL things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me!

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called FAILURE, a loop called CONFUSION, speed bumps called FRIENDS, red lights called ENEMIES, caution lights called FAMILY. You will have flat tires called JOBS!

But, if you have a spare called DETERMINATION, an engine called PERSEVERANCE, Insurance called FAITH, a driver called JESUS, then you will make it to the place called SUCCESS!

Jesus Said

Jesus made a wonderful promise:

"If you will confess me before people, I will confess you before my Father in heaven" -Mat 10:32.

The Cross

Before there was ever a mountain on earth, yea, even before the earth was created, God appointed Jesus Christ to be the Person of the Godhead who would come into the earth, live, suffer, shed his blood, and die, to make atonement for those given to him in the covenant of grace. Peter affirms that he is the spotless Lamb who was "foreordained before the foundation of the world" (I Pet. 1:18-20).

He is the "Lamb slain from the foundation of the world" and there has never been a time when his blood was without the power to save. His blood was not actually shed until the human family was at least 4,000 years old. But, because of the Divine ordination of his suffering and shedding his blood, it was as though it was already shed. I have said and have heard others say, "Men were saved on the credit before the crucifixion of Jesus Christ." The very fact that God had purposed and ordained that his blood be shed was enough for it to have the power to save even before he came and actually died.

I am reminded of those familiar and wonderful words of John the Baptist.

"Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world."

Determined, Dedicated and Disciplined

This is a lifestyle we all need to strive for.

This will be a rock, a firm foundation as we live in this arena.

"If you do not venture, you remain ordinary as long as you live. If you dare the impossible, then God will abundantly do far above all you ask or think." - Smith Wigglesworth

Having reached a decision: firmly resolved.

Firmly resolved is the act of deciding definitely and firmly; also the result of such an act of decision firm or fixed intention to achieve a desired end. A fixing or finding of the position, magnitude, value, or character of something: as the act, process, or result of an accurate measurement.

2 Timothy 3:12
Indeed all who delight in piety and are determined to live a devoted and godly life in Christ Jesus will meet with persecution will be made to suffer because of their religious stand.

1 Corinthian 2:2
For I resolved to know nothing to be acquainted with nothing, to make a display of the knowledge of nothing, and to be conscious of nothing among you except Jesus Christ the Messiah and Him crucified.

This is true determination.

John 3:16
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten unique Son, so that whoever believes in trusts in, clings to, relies on Him shall not perish come to destruction, be lost but have eternal everlasting life.

Romans 5:8
But God shows and clearly proves His own love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ the Messiah, the Anointed One died for us.

This is dedication.

Acts 17:11
Now these [Jews] were better disposed and more noble than those in Thessalonica, for they were entirely ready and accepted and welcomed the message concerning the attainment through Christ of eternal salvation in the kingdom of God with inclination of mind and eagerness, searching and examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.

Proverbs 25:28
He who has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and without walls.

    • Disciplined in making a conscious decision to love our neighbor everyday

    • Disciplined in making sure we read the Bible everyday

    • Disciplined in listening and obeying the Holy Ghost's prompting/unction

    • Disciplined in making sure we obey God's statutes and commands everyday

    • Disciplined to resist sin & or the very appearance of Sin

    • Disciplined in praying for others and self

    • Disciplined in using our spiritual gifts

    • Disciplined in serving Christ in what ministries he has called us to

    • Disciplined in regular fasting as the Lord leads

I Corinthians 6:12
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

I Corinthians 9:27
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Galatians 5:16
But I say, walk and live [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit [responsive to and controlled and guided by the Spirit]; then you will certainly not gratify the cravings and desires of the flesh (of human nature without God).

Galatians 5:25
If we live by the Holy Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.

A Straight And Narrow Road

Mathew 7:13

Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way (road) that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it.

But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) (small) compressed that leads away to life, and “ONLY” few are those who find it.

I’m writing this letter to be sure that you are on the right road.

If something terrible happened and you were to die, do you know for certain that you would go to Heaven? Did you know that in the United States that 2,400,000 people die every year? Many people purchase life insurance so that their family will be taken care of if they were to die suddenly, yet few people take the time to find out where they are going to “spend eternity” when they die. Don’t wait until it’s too late to make sure you are ready.

The Bible gives us God’s plan for going to Heaven:

Jesus came to earth as a man and lived 33 years then he died on the cross for you taking ALL your sins (that separate you from God) upon himself.

He took your guilt so you don’t have to be guilty anymore!

John 3:15-18

Jesus came in order that everyone who believes in Him who cleaves to Him, trusts Him, and relies on Him may not perish, but have eternal life and actually live forever!

For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He even gave up His only begotten unique Son, so that whoever believes in trusts in, clings to, relies on Him shall not perish come to destruction, be lost but have eternal everlasting life.

For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.

He who believes in Him who clings to, trusts in, relies on Him is not judged he who trusts in Him never comes up for judgment; for him there is no rejection, no condemnation--he incurs no damnation; but he who does not believe cleave to, rely on, trust in Him is judged already he has already been convicted and has already received his sentence because he has not believed in and trusted in the name of the only begotten Son of God (JESUS). He is condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christ's name.

The Bible teaches that God will punish sinners with death. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord". This death is an eternal painful suffering with no relief. God has reserved a place for sinners that is separate from Heaven. That place is called Hell. Few people want to hear about Hell.

Psalm 25:4-5

This means that if you die without trusting in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you will die in your sins and be forever separated from the love of God in a place called Hell. The Holy Bible describes Hell as a place of eternal torment, suffering, pain and agony for all those who have rejected Jesus Christ. The good news is that you can avoid Hell by allowing Jesus Christ to save you today. Only then will you have true peace in your life knowing that no matter what happens you are on your way to Heaven.

John 14:1-6

DO NOT let your hearts be troubled distressed, agitated. You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me.

In My Father's house there are many dwelling places (homes). If it were not so, I would have told you; for I am going away to prepare a place for you.

And when (if) I go and make ready a place for you, I will come back again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you may be also.

And [to the place] where I am going, you know the way.

Thomas said to Him, Lord, we do not know where You are going, so how can we know the way?

Jesus said “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by through Me.”

Psalm 25:4-5

Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you.”

So today REPENT and ask JESUS CHRIST to come into your heart & save you and you will have “eternal life” in “Heaven”.

For this is the straight & narrow road, now walk therein.
