Preparation of the Soil (heart).

We find the parable of the sower in the gospels of Matthew (13 v1-23 ), Mark (4 v1-20 ) and Luke (8 v1-18). (It is not in John’s gospel because John did not record any parables.  Did you know this? I did not!)  We also know it as the Parable of the Soils.  Both are accurate; Jesus told this parable to illustrate what happens when a farmer sows seeds on different soil, and the results that unfold.

The enormous crowd that gathered around would have been very familiar with the concepts of sowing seed.  The farmer would have reached into a bag of seed and toss it across the ground.  Naturally, all of it didn’t land on the best soil. Throughout the parable of the Sower, Jesus Christ teaches that if the word of God fails of accomplishing its work in our hearts and lives, the reason is to be found on ourselves.

The Truth is we cannot change ourselves, but the power of choice is ours , and it rests with us to determine what we will become , its either The Wayside, Stony ground, the thorny ground.
The Spirit of God is ever seeking to break the spell of infatuation that holds men absorbed in wordly things, and to awaken a desire for the imperishable treasure found in Heaven.
The garden of the heart must be cultivated. The soil must be broken up by deep repentance for sin. Satanic plants must be uprooted.
The soil once overgrown by thorns can be reclaimed only by diligent labor.

So the evil tendencies of the natural heart can be overcomed. Break up the fallow ground ( Jeremiah 4 v3.) The Sowers of the seed have a great work to do in preparing hearts to receive the gospel. In the ministry of the word there is too much sermonizing , and too little of the heart to heart work.
In Christlike sympathy we should come close to men individually, and seek to awaken their interest in the great things of eternal life, Their hearts may be as hard as the beaten hyways and apparently it maybe a useless effort to predent the savior to them but while logic may fail to move , and arguement be powerless to convince , the love of Jesus Christ, is revealed in personal ministry and can soften the stony heart , so that the seed of truth can take root in our hearts

Never doubt that God is with You……….

 

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”(ref,John 14*26-28)

God is in control. No matter what happens, He will never let any test that will defeat you, never doubt that. For followers of Jesus, everything will turn out for good. No person and no bad event can separate us from him.

When Jesus tells us not to be afraid, that’s not a suggestion that’s a command! He’s reassuring us because he does know the future for us, Remember something important. In the Garden of Gethsemane, before His crucifixion, Jesus was afraid. He has experienced fear too. Nobody understands like Jesus when it comes to your fears.

But because Jesus knows the future and because he cannot lie, we can have the peace he talks about. And wait on Him for victory of eternal life, never doubt that God is with you in every single situation and test of life.,(ref, John 3*16)

God pronounce us not guilty, When we Repent………

 

Can a person be saved without holding to the core beliefs of Christianity? No. But along with accepting as true those core beliefs must be a spiritual transformation. Jesus said that in order to inherit eternal life one must be “born again” (John 3*3).” Jesus answered them and said, surely,surely, I say to you, except a man be born again, he can’t see the kingdom of God”.

To be born again is a work of the Holy Spirit in the heart of a repentant sinner. Just as a mother in labor does all the work in bringing forth a new life, so the Holy Spirit does the work in transforming a sinner into a new creature (2 Corinthians 5*17).”Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new”.

This process begins when God draws a heart through conviction of sin and hope of forgiveness (John 6*44).”No man can come to me, except the Father which have sent me draw him to me, and I will raise him up at the last day”.When we surrender to God and repent of our sin (Acts 2*38),”Then Peter said to them, repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit”.

God applies the blood of His own Son to our account and cancels the debt we owe Him (Colossians 2*14). “By this act of transference, God pronounces us “not guilty”; that is, He justifies us (Romans 4*5). Salvation is a divine exchange: Jesus becomes our sin so that we can become His perfection (2 Corinthians 5*21). This is the gospel at the very core of Christianity


 

God’s Comfort.

YOUR GOD SAY THIS TO YOU TODAY.

I am the one comforting you what are you afraid of or who? some man or woman who’ll soon die? or some poor wretch destined for dust? You’ve forgotten me, God. who made you from dust and gave you life.

God who unfurled the skies, God who founded the earth. and here you are quaking like aspen before the tantrums of a tyrant, who thinks he can kick down the world. but what will come of the tantrums? the victims will be released before you know it.

They are not even going to go hungry, for I am God.your own very God. for I will teach you to talk word by word, and personally whatch over you. On that day you will say;” I thank you God because although you were angry at me, your anger is now turn away; and you are comforting me”.

(ref, Psalm 119*50, This is my comfort in my affliction that thy promise gives me Life.)

Our relationship with God.

The faith we have in life for God is a relationship, because faith determines the relationship between us and God. Faith we had in God it tells how close we are to God. Our relationship with God is built on the sacrifice of Christ Jesus and our acceptance of that sacrifice through obedience Faith.

That faith trust’s that GOD not only exists, but that He also Godly cares about us. And our desire to know Him, His Holy Spirit teaches us the plan of God of us. Not to start new one, but only of God. Everytime we allow peace and love to rule in our heart. He eagerly and longs to bless those who seek Him with all their heart.

But without faith it is impossible to please God. For he that cometh to God. Must believe that He is God.images-48

Christ the Author of Eternal Salvation.

images-16[2]

“For He said, I have heard the in a time accepted, and in the day of Salvation have I succed thee, behold now is the accepted time, behold now is the day of Salvation………For godly sorrow worketh repentence to salvation, not to be repented of; but the sorro of the world worketh death.”(ref, 2Cor 6*2 and 7*10).

So by knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep, for now it is our salvation nearer than when we believed. And take the helmet of salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the the Word of God.

Now with faith in Christ Jesus, we trusted after we heard the Word of truth, The gospel of our Salvation. In believing and trusting Christ Jesus we are sealed with Holy Spirit of Promise. How shall we escape, if we neglect so great Salvation which at first began to be spoken by the lord. And was confirmed to us by them who heard Him. And being made perfect, He became the Author of eternal Salvation unto all of them that Obey Him.
