Welcome to All Our International Visitors

Welcome to all our international visitors

It is an honor to have you come and visit our website.  We pray you are blessed by something you find here.  We realize there are Christians all over the world, so we have brothers and sisters everywhere. We want to follow Jesus, who died for all, lives to intercede for us and is coming again to take us to be with Him in Heaven.

2 Corinthians 5:1-5 Easy-to-Read Version 

We know that our body—the tent we live in here on earth—will be destroyed. But when that happens, God will have a home for us to live in. It will not be the kind of home people build here. It will be a home in heaven that will continue forever. But now we are tired of this body. We want God to give us our heavenly home. It will clothe us and we will not be naked. While we live in this tent, we have burdens and so we complain. I don’t mean that we want to remove this tent, but we want to be clothed with our heavenly home. Then this body that dies will be covered with life. This is what God himself made us for. And he has given us the Spirit as the first payment to guarantee the life to come.  No matter your circumstances, please remember the Lord Jesus died for all mankind.  There are no special people chosen to receive Him as Savior.  All you need to do is say yes to His invitation and salvation comes into your life.  He will help you through every crisis, every painful place, and every loss.  My own life is a testimony of that fact.  Through every loss, sickness, and painful place, Jesus has brought me through.  He will do the same for all you call upon His name.

John 3:16-18 The Passion Translation 

16 For this is how much God loved the world—he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life.  17 “God did not send his Son into the world to judge and condemn the world, but to be its Savior and rescue it!18 So now there is no longer any condemnation for those who believe in him, but the unbeliever already lives under condemnation because they do not believe in the name of God’s beloved Son.

Romans 10:8-13 Easy-to-Read Version

This is what the Scripture says: “God’s teaching is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart.” It is the teaching of faith that we tell people. If you openly say, “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from death, you will be saved. 10 Yes, we believe in Jesus deep in our hearts, and so we are made right with God. And we openly say that we believe in him, and so we are saved.  11 Yes, the Scriptures say, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disappointed.” 12 It says this because there is no difference between those who are Jews and those who are not. The same Lord is the Lord of all people. And he richly blesses everyone who looks to him for help. 13 Yes, “everyone who trusts in the Lord will be saved.”

 

Praying for the Nations

Praying for the Nations

There are many Bible verses concerning the nations of the world.  God created mankind, and he cares very much about all of them.  Those that have accepted Jesus Christ of Nazareth as Savior, have entered into a covenant with God, through the payment of the Cross of Jesus.  We who are believers are scattered all over the world.  We come from every nation and tribe.  It is important that we pray for our brothers and sisters all over the world.  We are all one Body in Christ, and we need each other’s prayers and unity of spirit.

We also need to pray for those who have not heard of Jesus The Christ so they too may have an opportunity to be a part of God’s family in Christ Jesus.  The promised end-time revival is at hand, we must not forget those in other lands that have not heard, or have been misled by half-truths about who Jesus really is.

Let us look at the Bible for some clarification.

Psalms 67  God be merciful unto us, and bless us, and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.   That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.   Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.   O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.  Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.   Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.   God shall bless us, and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

Psalms 72:11  Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.

Psalms 72:17  His name shall endure forever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.

Psalms 117:1-2  O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth forever. Praise ye the LORD.

Isaiah 2:1-4  The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.   And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.  And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.  And he shall judge among the nations and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

Micah 4:2-3  And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob, and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.   And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

Zechariah 2:10-13  Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD.   And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee.   And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.   Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation.

Matthew 24:4-14  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.   And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.   For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.  All these are the beginning of sorrows.   Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.   And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.   And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.   And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.   But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.   And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Romans 16:25-27  Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, but now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:  To God, only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen

We need to pray for the brothers and sisters around the world, that they may be able to endure persecution,  keep the faith, be restored in body and spirit, and for peace to be their foundation during these trying times.   We need to pray for lost souls to hear the Gospel of Christ Jesus and receive Him as Lord.  It is a privilege to be called to intercede for each other.  We can count it a blessing from God to be a part of His family care team.

Pray for All People
1 Timothy 2:1-8  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.   For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.   For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;   Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.   Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.   I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

God is faithful to us in our old age

God is faithful to us in our old age

Psalm 71:18 Easy-to-Read Version 

“18 Now that I am old and my hair is gray, don’t leave me, God.
    I must tell the next generation about your power and greatness.”

From the moment we are conceived in our mother’s womb, God is with us.  Some people will never know that fact.  Some will learn of Him and rejoice in His care.  No matter what group we are in, He is still faithful.  It is when we hear about God and His son, Jesus, and accept Them into our lives that our awareness is opened.  God is always looking out for His creation.

When I was a little girl, I heard about Jesus in Sunday School.  He sounded way off in Heaven and I was not sure about how we could know God and His Son here on the earth.  Yet my heart was softened by the Holy Spirit, to hope in the truth that God loved mankind so much He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for all mankind. When my teacher read John 3:16 to us, I decided to believe that and accept Him into my heart. I was 8 years old at the time.  He came into my life and through the Bible, His Word, I have come to know Him in a deeper relationship.  Over these years since, we have become friends.  He is always available for any conversation and fellowship.  The only time there is a break in that fellowship, is when I walk away for a season.  He never leaves me.

Sadly, so many people have never met Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  He came to earth, born of a virgin called Mary, lived and died as a man, filled with the Holy Spirit.  He rose from the dead, after paying the price for all mankind’s sin, and He is coming back to earth again to claim all those who believe in Him.  Today is your day to open your heart to Him.  Today is the day the Holy Spirit is drawing you to Him, just like He did for me when I was an 8-year-old girl.  If you open your heart today you can be redeemed from sin and death.

John 3:16-17 Easy-to-Read Version 

16 Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him would not be lost but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world. He did not send him to judge the world guilty, but to save the world through him.

John 14:6-7 KJV

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

John 16:7-15 KJV

Nevertheless, I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:  Of sin, because they believe not on me;  10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;  11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 

12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.  13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.  14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Romans 10:9-12 Easy-to-Read Version 

If you openly say, “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from death, you will be saved. 10 Yes, we believe in Jesus deep in our hearts, and so we are made right with God. And we openly say that we believe in him, and so we are saved.

11 Yes, the Scriptures say, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disappointed.” 12 It says this because there is no difference between those who are Jews and those who are not. The same Lord is the Lord of all people. And he richly blesses everyone who looks to him for help.
