Forgiveness of sins, is the heart of salvation.

According to the book of Luke, verses 1:68-79, it is because of God’s tender mercy for mankind that He gave His Son, Jesus Christ (John 3:16), the light of the world (John 8:12), to be the only way that people can possibly be saved from their sins (John 14:6).

“The people walking in darkness

    have seen a great light;

on those living in the land of deep darkness

    a light has dawned” (Isaiah 9:2).

The Heavenly Father sent Jesus to all those who sit in darkness and walk through the shadow of death (Psalm 23:), to guide their feet into the way of peace, through the “Prince of Peace”, who is Christ the Lord (Isaiah 9:6).

Forgiveness of sins is the heart of the salvation. God the Father saves sinners from eternal separation and hell, only through the sacrificial blood atonement of His dear Son, Jesus Christ. (Romans 4:6-8; 2 Corinthians 5:19; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 9:22).

Are you among those people who have seen the great light of Christ and through Him been given the knowledge of Salvation? Have you been set you free from the bondage of sin, the shadow of death, and hell?

You may be asking: “How can I be saved from my sins against God?”

In Luke 18:13, the sinner prayed: “God be merciful to me a sinner.” Just pray: “Oh God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when He died on the Cross. I believe His shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive Him as my Savior. I thank You for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and everlasting life, because of Your merciful grace. Amen.”

If you just prayed the sinners prayer to God, and sincerely meant it, then you are now one of His children in Jesus Christ, amen. ✝️

Do you believe your heart is still beating because god allows it?

My wife has been working with a wonderful little elderly lady who has Alzheimer’s disease. One of the things this lady still remembers and says, with a peaceful smile upon her face to my wife each time they meet is:

“Hi. My name is Marsha, and my heart beats because God allows it. He speaks through my spirit, and my souls is saved because Jesus died for my sins. When I die, I’m going to see my Savior face to face, amen.” 🙂 ❤️ 💐

Are our hearts beating for Jesus? Does God speak through our spirits? Do we know without a single doubt that our eternal souls are saved because Jesus died for our sins? 

Can we honestly say with child like faith and assurance, just as Marsha believes and says, that when we die, we too will be seeing Jesus? ✝️


“Even so come quickly Lord Jesus.”

With our focus firmly fixed on North Korea, the world may have taken its eyes off Russia.

Below is an article that reminds us of Russia’s intense determination to continue the development, advancement and deployment of powerful new ballistic missile technology to be used against whatever nation it may consider to be its enemy. 

“Even so come quickly Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22:20).


Russia To Test New Generation Missile (Satan 2) That Can Beat US Defense System.

This week the world was reminded that North Korea isn’t the only country that has been showcasing its nuclear power to the world. 

Russia conducted a massive test of its most advanced missile technology as the concluding salvo of the large-scale Zapad war games it conducted on NATO’s Eastern border. 

The frighteningly powerful new missile technology now raises the stakes in a nuclear arms race that many had hoped was cooling down over the last few decades.

A total of three RS-28 Sarmat missiles, known by the ominous code name Satan 2, were launched. One of the missiles originated in the Plestek Cosmodrome in Western Russia while the other two crossed Russia from the West, both launching from submarines. 

No ordinary launch, the purported 100-ton RS-28 Sarmat is significant for its 3,600-mile range and ability to deliver an immense, multi-warhead payload. 

The missile has been in development since 2009 and is expected to enter regular service by 2020, though no figures are available on how many missiles may be deployed. Most are in hardened bunkers or on nuclear submarines.

Russia claims it is capable of delivering 15 warheads, each registering in the 40-megaton range (roughly 2,000 times the strength of the bombs dropped on Japan) and able to target separate cities. 

In short, the Satan 2 is a nation killer capable of completely destroying most European cities or the major population centers in an area the size of Texas.

Trying to counter such a missile, current defense systems use kinetic-kill vehicles, an approach that has been described as trying to knock a bullet out of the sky with another bullet – no small technical feat to be sure. 

With a spotty hit record, multiple interceptors could be launched against any incoming ballistic missile to help ensure success. But when that ICBM includes 15 hypersonic warheads and several dummy projectiles, national defenses would be instantly overwhelmed by a single Satan 2, let alone if several dozen were fired.

All three missiles, fitted with only dummy warheads this time, hit their targets, the Russian military announced. Putin was on hand to witness the closing days of the war games and watched as the central command declared that “all assigned targets were engaged. All objectives of the training have been successfully completed.”

The wargames and their dramatic conclusion sent a message to the rest of the world that Russia continues to be a major military power. We may debate when North Korea will test its next nuclear device and if Kim Jong Un will be daring enough to use it in anger, but there is no doubt that Russia is as dangerous as ever.

Does God always answer our prayers?

Anytime our prayers are focused upon God’s sovereign will being accomplished in our lives and the lives of others, or concerning the bigger picture; that of the world and those He created living in it and ushering in peace, then our praying is on track and in harmony with His plans.

God has promised that, when we ask for things that are in accordance with His will, He will provide what we ask for (1 John 5:14–15). However, there is one caveat to add to this: we may not always like the answer.

We all too often pray for things—some good, some bad, some also really self-serving and pointless. But God still listens to all the prayers of those who love and honor Him, regardless of what they ask (Matthew 7:7). in other words, God does not ignore His children when they pray (Luke 18:1–8). When we pray (talk to Him), He has promised to listen and respond (Matthew 6:6; Romans 8:26–27). His answer may have some variations however; “yes” or “no” or “wait”, or “not right now”, or, “I can’t believe you asked me for that.” 

But we are to keep in mind that the intent of prayer, is not our way of getting God to do what we want. Our prayers should be focused on things that honor and glorify Him and reflect what the Bible clearly reveals God’s will to be concerning any number of circumstances (Luke 11:2). 

For example, if we pray for something that dishonors God or is not according to His perfect will and plans for our lives, and is in any way harmful, or not even in our best interest, then naturally, He will out of His love for us, not give what we ask for. 

It must be obvious to anyone other than an atheist, that God’s wisdom far exceeds our own, thus we must trust that His answers to our many hopes and prayers are the best possible answers and solutions all the way around. 

Now, I have been praying for the Trump administration to succeed in securing a peaceful solution to the North Korean delima, as well as the other problematic, dangerous places that exist in the world today, and regardless the eventual outcome of my prayers, I believe those kinds of prayers are always in line with God’s soverign will for the world. 

Will you Join me in praying for a peaceful resolution regarding North Korea, and for the peace of Israel, and the entire world?

If Jesus came for you tonight, are you certain you’re ready to meet Him?

Mourning the deaths of all those murdered Sunday in Sutherland Texas. 

Today, while mourning the deaths of all those murdered while attending church last Sunday morning in Sutherland Texas, Vice President Mike Pence said this:

“We do mourn with those who mourn and grieve with those who grieve, but we do not grieve like those who have no hope.” (those who die without Christ) referencing 1 Thessalonians 4:13 and Romans 12:15.

The scripture passage Vice President Mike Pence referenced to above, reminded me of another similar scripture the Apostle, Paul, wrote to the church of Corinth:

Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep (die), but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For uthe trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:

“Death is swallowed up in victory.”

  O death, where is your victory?

  O death, where is your sting?”

  (1 Corinthians 15:51-55)

Glory to God that everyone who know Jesus as their Savior and Lord, will be raised from their graves imperishable and will forever after be with Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

Jesus said this:

“So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him (Matthew 24:44).

Jesus is going to come for everyone sooner or later, either in their physical death, or in the “Rapture”. Therefore, if you were to suddenly and unexpectedly die tonight or tomorrow, as those who were attending church last Sunday, suddenly and unexpectedly died, or like all those in the Las Vegas massacre, or in your sleep, or in some kind of an accident, would you be ready to meet Jesus?

You may be asking yourself: “How can I be saved from my sins and know I am going to be with Jesus after I die?”

“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). God has already done all of the work. All you must do is receive, in faith, the salvation God offers (Ephesians 2:8-9). Fully trust in Jesus alone as the payment for your sins. Believe in Him, and you will not perish (John 3:16). God is offering you salvation as a gift. All you have to do is accept it. Jesus is the way of salvation (John 14:6).

Below is a prayer you can pray to insure you are saved and will be with Jesus when He calls for you to meet Him face to face:

“God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Jesus alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!”

If you just prayed the sinners prayer for the first time, or if you are rededicating your life to Jesus Christ, I would love to hear from you and pray with you, and help in locating a Bible teaching church in your area where you can be spiritually fed and have fellowship with other Christian believers. 

May God bless you as you draw near to Him, in Jesus Name, amen. ✝️

Careful, the Way ahead, is very narrow and few find it.

Whatever you do, don’t miss the very narrow road leading to the cross ✝️ of Christ (Matthew 7:14).

Love covers a multitude of sins.

“And above all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity” (Colossians 3:14).

We all struggle in many ways, so let us be loving, patient, kind and tender hearted to others in the spirit of Christ. 

The scriptures verses below, spoken by Jesus and the Apostle, Paul, encourage, instruct and command that we are to love others just as Jesus loved and gave Himself for us even while we we’re still sinners (Romans 5:8).

Luke 6:31. “And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.”

Ephesians 4:32. “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”

John 13:34-35. “A new commandment I give to you (Jesus said), that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Galatians 5:22-23. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”

Hebrews 13:1-2 . “Let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”

Romans 12:9-13. “Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Out do one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.”

Colossians 3:12-14. “Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.”

1 Peter 3:8-12. “Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. For whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

Brothers and sisters in Christ, let is not live as the world lives, uncaring, unkind, rude, thoughtless, selfish and angry, but let is live as our Savior Jesus lives by sacrificially and graciously loving others, who like ourselves are all fighting some form of spiritual, emotional and physical battles.

“Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8).

Not my will be done Lord but yours.

We always make our best decisions after praying to God.

Hopefully we have learned by now the negative consequences of not praying to God before we decide to impulsively act on important decisions. Sadly, those consequences not only directly effect us personally, but often times they negatively effect and impact our family, and friends as well, those both near and far away.

Once we begin listening to God and cooperating with Him concerning our personal decision making, then He will begin working His will and plan in our lives which always produces the very best results.

“We may think we are doing

  the right thing,

  but the Lord always knows

  what is in our hearts” (Proverbs 21:2).

When we listen to God, our lives change for the better.

If we will stop be anxious, and hold still long enough to hear what God has to say to us, instead of always wanting to hear what we have to say, and what others are saying we should do, then our lives would absolutely change for the better. 

What kind of fruit are we producing?

Our Lord does not want to cheat us out of good times, but when those so called “good times” are not according to His Word, then they will produce a crop of rotten fruit every time. 

God will never force us to do what is in our best interest.

God cannot, and will not force us to obey Him, or to do what is in our best interest, and that’s where our free will decision making process comes into play. 

Listening to, and obeying the warnings of our God given conscious. 

While our God given conscience warns us not to do those things we know are not good for us, sometimes our sinful desires demand that their selfish needs must be met, resulting in negative consequences.

“If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them” (James 4:17).

Whether we decide to make good or bad decisions, we will always reap exactly what we sow, more than we sow and much much longer than we sow.   

Once we confess to the Lord that our decisions have gone against all the good He had planned for us, then He will forgive and purify us from all our wrongdoing (1 John 1:9).

I believe God answers our prayers in four ways: 

“Yes, no, not right now, and I can’t believe you actually asked me for that.”

Are we praying to our loving Heavenly Father, honestly expecting His will be done, or that our will be done?

Chaplain Mike 

God reigns supreme.

We live in a troubled and dangerous world.

Even though we do live in a very troubled and dangerous world, we can go to sleep at night knowing nothing ever takes place in this world, or in our personal lives that catches God of guard or by surprise. 

We place the full weight of our faith and trust in the true and living God, who is firmly seated on His heavenly throne, reining supreme over the affairs of this world and leaders of the nations.

Those Jesus has saved from their sins, need not fear.

“The LORD is my light and my salvation– whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life– of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1)

Read also what the Bible says about who ultimately guides the hearts of the nations leaders.

“The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: He turns it wherever He will” (Proverbs 21:1).

Glory to God, we can rest easy knowing He is not only in complete control of the universe, but of this world as well, amen. ✝️

Absolutely Nothing Can Ever Separated Us From The Love Of God.

The scripture verse below, is the Christian’s absolute, unconditional, unshakable assurance of God’s unfailing love for them.

“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).

These two verses contain one of the most comforting promises in all of scripture. While believers in Jesus have always had to face hardships in their many forms: persecution, illness, imprisonment, beatings, starvation and even death, they have always been able to place their confidence in the fact that God will never leave, abandon or forsake them.

The Apostle, Paul, exclaims with unmovable assurance that it is impossible for the true Christian to ever be separated from God’s great love for them. How incredibly thankful and blessed we are to know without any doubt, that because Jesus went to the cross for us, that absolutely nothing then can ever prevent or stop His unconditional abiding presence, love and comfort for those who genuinely belong to Him.

Because we know the Holy Spirit spoke these words through Paul, there should be no doubt then of our eternal security in Jesus. If we will only remember, believe and claim this overwhelming assurance when we are going through life’s various trials, then we will never be afraid of anyone, anything or any circumstance we may find ourselves in.

Praise God for His blessed assurance to us in Christ, our Savior and Lord, amen. ✝️
