Good NewsThe Gospel (the Good News) of God
Know this above all things;
God is Spirit and wants to reunite your spirit with His Spirit. God is Love and loves you.
God says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation. For no man knows his hour of departure from the earth. Isaiah 64: 5-6 You are indeed angry, for we have sinned— In these ways we continue; And we need to be saved.
6 But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags;
God said, “in the day when I visit for punishment I will visit punishment upon them for their sin.” “And they will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Jesus Christ came to redeem the whole world and to place it perfectly whole and restored before the thrown of God. God was in Christ (Jesus who is the image of God), reconciling the world to himself, not charging your wrong doings to you. For God made Jesus who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
Because God is Holy and wants us to be reconciled to Him, Christ was crucified for us. He took our sins and laid them on the cross as he laid down his life as a sacrifice to God. God is a just God, and therefore, there must be a consequence for our actions (our sins), that consequence was Christ crucified. He took our punishment. When God walked in the Garden of Eden with man, man had no sin, you cannot walk in the Heavens with God unless you have been cleansed of sin, God had a plan since the beginning of time for you to be redeemed (cleansed from sin). That plan was and is through Jesus, a friend once told me a story about Jesus being the bridge, on one side is the people on earth and the other side God and the heavens he has prepared for us. God has already set the plan in place, now it’s up to us to find that bridge to him. Jesus is the bridge to God; Jesus is the only way to God. You must accept Gods way or no way. God does not want anyone to perish, but because God made us in his image, he gave us what we call free will (the right to choose); we must choose for ourselves which path we will take. The path that leads to destruction or the path that leads to God, the path where you are covered in the robe of righteousness (Jesus is the robe of righteousness, he comes inside us and he covers us before God). Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Those that come to him, will not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus said, “I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him and dine with him and he with me; ““he who believes in me has everlasting life.”
The fear of The Lord leads to life (Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell ), and he who has it will abide in satisfaction, he will not be visited with evil. Let us search out and examine our ways, and turn to the Lord, our Creator. Let us lift our hearts and hands to God in Heaven. We have transgressed and rebelled against God Almighty. This is a matter of life and death; seek for yourself whether these words are true. Time is at hand, it is too important for you and those you care about to not know the truth.
JUDGEMENT WILL COME whether you believe or not, I beg you to search for the truth before it’s too late.
My brother wrote me letters similar to this and I was persuaded to seek for myself. At the time I had The Living Bible and I in secret began to read. I had tried reading the Bible when I was younger and after a while I had got angry with God for putting a punishment upon all women because of Eve’s sin, so I closed the book and hadn’t picked it up until then. So I decided to start reading in the New Testament starting with Matthew, hoping to not have the same experience that would hinder me from reading the rest. As I began reading through Matthew, I remember becoming so jealous because God had come for the Jews. Tears coming down my face as I desperately felt the void in my life. Why did God not come for us? I was thinking but kept reading because I wanted to know what is the truth. After a couple of months my brother told me to find a church because it is important for me to be born again, I did not know what that meant at the time. I got out the yellow pages and started looking for churches in my area and I began to make phone calls. I began to call the churches that were closest to me and a lady at Abundant Life Church in Willis, Texas answered the phone and gave me information, she sounded so nice, so I started attending services. I went to every service and within a few weeks I felt God calling me before the service was over, so I got up and went up front and stood in front of the preacher (Rev Stovall) he stepped down from the platform and took my hand and ask me to repent of my sins. I remember telling him I have been repenting (which means to realize what you have done in the past is wrong and not do it anymore, I think also to tell God you are sorry) for the last few months. He told me to raise my hands and I did, he put his hand on my forehead and he said receive the Holy Ghost. At that time I began to hear something from above, it sounded like many horses coming from the sky and they came to me just like you see Santa Claus coming down the chimney on a TV show. I felt like as if I was being shocked by electricity starting at the tip of my fingers coming down thru my body, as it got to my heart and organs area I began to get scared what will it do to me, but it kept going, now down to my knee areas where I thought I’m not going to be able to stand, but it kept going until it was completely thru me and then it was gone. After a few seconds of being in total amazement I opened my eyes and I had to sit down, I was so exhausted. I saw the other people in the church dancing and praising God. That was the day I was born again, from then on I was able to know that God is real and alive today, that was the day I was able to be in his presence(because I had been cleansed and now wearing the robe of righteousness, God no longer seeing my sins, because Jesus had already paid my debt. After that day, I was totally changed; I wasn’t the same as I use to be. I could see and think clearly, if you have not experienced a new you in your life I suggest you go to Abundant Life and talk to Brother Stovall, I believe he has what the Bible calls the gift of laying on of hands. In the Bible it says in the book of Acts that there were those that believed but had not received the Holy Spirit(where you receive the robe of righteousness) and John and Peter went to them and talked to them and laid hands on them and they received the Holy Ghost. Wow is the word that I was using so many times after this experience. There are many other things I could tell you that occurred after I was born again that you would not believe. God is real and he does work in our lives today, but you must give him permission to do so and you must believe on his path to righteousness. You must repent and believe on The Lord Jesus Christ to be saved. I believe and therefore I speak, knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up. Therefore do not lose heart, even though our outward man (our body) is perishing, the inward man can be renewed. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.
p.s. Abundant Life Church had nothing to do with this letter, I just felt compelled to tell my experience, my story. I hope you will do and not just read, and I pray you will find the truth. Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened. God is waiting for you. Will you say “Here I am Lord, show me your ways, lead me in your truth and teach me”?
