3-REPENTANCE IS AN ABSOLUTE
This most important thing that every person "must" do or there is no hope of salvation is often ignored in many churches and by many preachers. This absolute is the very first word that Peter is recorded saying when he was asked by the people what they must do. Jesus Christ is recorded 7 times in the 4 Gospels as saying that a person must do this one thing. God’s program is centered around trying to get men to do this one thing. What is this incredibly important thing that is so often left out by so many preachers, priests, and rabbi? What is this most important thing that even some of the best of the television evangelists often seem to forget to include? Let Jesus Christ tell us from Luke’s Gospel chapter 13, verse 3 and 5-I TELL YOU, NAY: BUT EXCEPT YE REPENT, YE SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH. Again, in verse 5, Jesus repeats-I TELL YOU, NAY: BUT, EXCEPT YE REPENT, YE SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH.
John the Baptist made it very clear, as he said, REPENT YE, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL-Mk 1:15.
Salvation depends upon faith that involves repentance. It may be said, as a result of believing or as a result of faith, repentance takes place. When a person truly believes the Gospel in his heart, repentance is the result. Thus, to believe includes repentance. Repentance then may be said to be the evidence of turning from unbelief to belief of God's Word. John the Baptist said, PRODUCE FRUIT IN KEEPING WITH REPENTANCE-Mt 3:8 NIV.
However, when unbelief sets in, a turning away from God occurs.
So i had the username "jms10" well since 2010 i believe. I think that's why i chose that username. I contacted myPraize and asked if i could change it. and they said yes and changed it for me to "jstuart"! Thanks myPraize!
So i am finally beta testing the new myPraize! I think its gonna be great! I'm not sure how much i can share about it but its pretty cool! Think Facebook meets like Twitter meets Purevolume or something like that! I'll keep you somewhat updated!
The littlest of gods:
In, “The Caleb Chronicles”, Caleb and the people of High Rock refer to Satan as, “the littlest of gods”. There is only ONE TRUE LIVING GOD and He is the Creator of all and the Master of the Universe. He is the Father, He is the Son and He is the Holy Spirit. But, sad to say many, many people have other gods. Rather it is their job, money, physical fitness, their significant other, or Buddha, Allah, Satan, and the earth, Mother Nature.
Exodus 20:3"You shall have no other gods before Me.
In other words don’t put anything or anyone before God. God, the Timeless-One comes first in our lives, right?
So why is Satan referred to as “the littlest of gods”? Because he is a created being that wants to be the Creator, he is hate that wants to rule over the Author of Love, and he can speak nothing but lies about Truth. His goal is to get God’s creation to worship him instead of God, and to remove the Timeless-One from His throne.
Isa 14:15Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.
Isa 14:16"Those who see you will gaze at you, And consider you, saying: 'Is this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms,"
There is going to be a time when all will look at the littlest of gods and laugh and say, “This is what all the trouble was about? THIS is what caused all the problems in the world? HUH, he is nothing!”
Jesus referred to Satan as Beelzebub, meaning, the lord of the flies. Hmm, that’s pretty small, right?
I wrote something a few years ago, I thought I would share. It’s called, “Monster”.
“Night has fallen,
The monster has risen
Down my hall he walks,
In darkness I listen.
The monster opens the door,
And steps inside
Words he did possess,
Anger and deceit to attack my mind.
He got in my face,
He picked at my heart.
The monster resurrected memories
To rip my spirit apart.
With darkened words he spoke,
And evil thoughts he bled.
The past he did bring forth,
Lies are what he said.
With much anger and disgust,
I grabbed the monster and said, “Die!”
When I flicked on the light, much to my surprise,
The creature that shakes nations is nothing more than a little fly.
“Caleb turned the letter over several times to examine it, and then opened it. It read:
To Caleb, high priest of the people of High Rock and servant to the Timeless-One, greetings,
I would like to invite you to my humble dwelling place to discuss a matter of great importance to you and your people. I look forward to meeting with you.
Caleb reread the letter several times, and then went back to heart linking with the Timeless-One.
At first, Caleb did not want to go see Mr. Wizard, nor did he want to talk with him. He did not want to be near where he lived at all. But, out of concern for the people of High Rock, he decided to go and hear what Mr. Wizard had to say. Caleb lifted his hands and his eyes toward heaven and said, “Oh Timeless-One, Your will be done. My heart says go. What does Your heart say?”
The Timeless-One answered Caleb saying, “Caleb, my friend, go to Mr. Wizard, for he loves darkness and hates the Light. He clings to evil and curses Love. Before he causes one of my little ones to fall, you must go.”
Caleb fell to his knees in worship.”
The above is taken from, “The Invitation”.
How many times do we feel we need to do something, we feel it’s the right thing to do . . . and yet. Then we say to ourselves, “It feels right, I’ll give it a shot.” Maybe we should consider what Caleb did, he took it to the Timeless-One, “Oh Timeless-One, Your will be done. My heart says go. What does Your heart say?”
Just because it “feels” right, it does not mean it’s the right thing to do. Take your needs, your desires, your questions, your hopes and dreams, and your adoration to the Timeless-One and say, “What does Your heart say?” Selah, I.H.G.
Right now im going through a lot. I wont give you all the details because im not comfortable with sharing it all but i will tell some of the things thats going on. Just last week my grandfather passed away. He had ALS and had been battling that for the past few years. A couple weeks before that my girlfriend and I broke up. And there were a few other events that have just made the start of the year really rough.
I'm trying really hard just to give it all to God and let him handle it all and not worry about anything. But its hard because i care about these things and i want to be able to handle it. But im coming to learn that hard times are gonna come and that we need to put our faith in God and let Him help us through it. But that doesn't make it any easier. Im just struggling with all of this and sometimes feel like there isnt much hope. I know that this is part of God's plan for my life but i have a hard time accepting it all.
So i guess in conclusion, I just wanted to make this post to express myself and also to let someone know that they are not alone, that other people are going through hard times too and that they also have God if they choose. He will be on your side through anything you go through.
On February 15, 2002 I gave my life to Jesus Christ. I still remember it decently clear, even though i was only 5. I remember my sister and I went out next to our barn, at the house we were living in at the time and she led me to Christ. I don't remember what all was said but i do remember doing the action. I feel like I'm getting closer and closer to God each day. But its nice to remember that first day when i gave my life to Him!
I have noticed that several features on the current site isn't working. Profile photos aren't working and photos and videos just seem to never be approved. I don't know if that means new things are coming soon or whatever.
So I have talked to Joshua and he told me they are in the beta phase of the new myPraize site. I wont give you to much detail because i don't know how much he does want to be told. But i hope i can be a beta tester soon and try it out. I am really excited about the new site. I've been on myPraize on and off since about 2008 or 09 i believe. This may have been my first social network that i was ever on. I remember spending too much time on here. I was home schooled and so i could almost get on here at about anytime of the day.
But anyways im just feeling impatient for the new site and i wish it would hurry up lol
