Truth is Truth whether we choose to believe it or not.

God’s Word is clear.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession. And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself? While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.” Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things. And the young men arose and wrapped him up, carried him out, and buried him. Now it was about three hours later when his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. And Peter answered her, “Tell me whether you sold the land for so much?” She said, “Yes, for so much.” Then Peter said to her, “How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out.” Then immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her out, buried her by her husband. So great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things.
Many come in the name of Jesus.
But many are liars that come to use others. They come to manipulate and take advantage of the sheep. They are wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing. When we know the truth of God, we can walk in the light. We have no hidden agendas and the Lord is on our side.
The Bible says that we can be sure that sin will be exposed. The evil that some have done will come to light.
God is not a liar. His desire is to save. But to be saved we have to come clean. We must walk in truth. Living one way on a weekday and professing Jesus on the Sunday is just not going to cut it.
One day we will all have to stand before the Lord and give an account for all we have said and ll we have done.
So let’s set the record straight,
We can preach till we are blue in the face…
We can claim to know the truth but still live in darkness.
A good deed done in the name of God through lies and deceit will not stand. God is not the author of confusion. (1 Corinthians 4:33)
We cannot serve two masters.(Mathew 6:24).
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
The seeds you plant are the seeds that will grow.
We are to come to the Lord openly, willingly, no hold bars….
If we truly want to live for God we must come completely heart, mind and soul.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
I John 1:8-9 NKJV
Won’t you come clean?
Won’t you admit your wrong?
Won’t you come to the fountain that will never run dry?
He will give you living water…
Water that cleanses us within… Water that satisfies our every void.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6
Real Love tells you that the path you are on will bring you to harm.
Real loves stops you from jumping in to an eternity with Christ.
Jesus died on a Cross, to take on the punishment of our sin. He rose again on the third day leaving the tomb empty to demonstrate that He has the power to save. In Him is Life. He freely gives this life to those who come to him and turn away from their sin.
Sin is what separates us from living the life God intended for us. It brings shame, guilt, and ultimately condemnation.
Jesus brings hope, joy, peace and He gives us Eternal Life.
A free card…
Entrance to the Kingdom of God because he paid our price. He gave his own life.
All of us have sinned. All who believe can come in. The choice is yours and mine.
Come while there is still time.
