HEAVEN OR HELL IS A CHOICE WE MAKE, CHRIST OFFERS FREEDOM AND HEAVEN

 R E S C U E D  A T  D E A T H 

We need to be rescued in hope
   For a life after we close our eyes
 And leave this world of our family
   Moving behind the veil of no return.

 Oh, I would like to part the cloth
   Of that hanging veil that separates
 Me from my loved ones who died,
   Just a peak is all I want to view.

 But first I must find this invisible
   Yes, transparent veil way to what? 
 Atheists say it leads to dried bones
   In a six foot hole in the cemetery.

 Some say they are not sure but hope,
   Hope that there is a God who cares
 And will at least not send them down,
   Down to the hell Christians talk about.

 Then there are the committed Christians
   Who walk around in joy proclaiming,
 That Jesus will take them to Heaven
   To live a wonderful life of bliss.

 Oh my educators say there is no God,
   Be not wasted, living a hope after death,
 Then there are the timid God believers
   Who say I hope God will save us. 

 Then there are the good persons
   Who say look at my charity and love,
 Although I have not professed Jesus
   But if He is real, He will forgive me.

 Let me tell you all of a help for you
   In this matter that will guide you,
 It happened yesterday when in study
   I read the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 20.

 Here we have the Sadducees
   Who were a group in the Jewish world
Trying to trap Jesus as he taught in the temple 
  Here are Jesus' words about resurrection.

Luke 20:27-40 Then some of the Sadducees, who deny that there is a resurrection, came to Him and asked Him, 28 saying: "Teacher, Moses wrote to us that if a man's brother dies, having a wife, and he dies without children, his brother should take his wife and raise up offspring for his brother. 29 Now there were seven brothers. And the first took a wife, and died without children. 30 And the second took her as wife, and he died childless. 31 Then the third took her, and in like manner the seven also; and they left no children, and died. 32 Last of all the woman died also. 33 Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife does she become? For all seven had her as wife." 34 Jesus answered and said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage. 35 But those who are counted worthy to attain that age, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; 36 nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. 37 But even Moses showed in the burning bush passage that the dead are raised, when he called the Lord 'the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.' 38 For He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for all live to Him." NKJV

 Jesus said that those counted worthy
   Become persons of the resurrection
 For they are equal to the angels
   And never die again but are living.

 Oh God who are these special ones
   You call the persons of the resurrection.
 You must mean Jesus' resurrection from death
   Is also for those who believe and follow you.

 Yes, what an assurance for Jesus followers
   Found in the words of Jesus Himself 
 For Jesus was the Son of God in human form
   Who came to save and resurrect us.

 From this it is not hard to deduce
   That because there is a blissful Heaven,
 There must also be a place for those not worthy
   Known as a real place called Hell.

 If your are not a follower of Jesus,
   Change your life to follow Jesus,
 Ask for forgiveness and his mercy
   And become a son of the resurrection.

    God Touched Me    

   by Frank Henrich April 15, 2007

God touched my life,
  It came unexpectedly,
And suddenly now
  My life is changed forever.

Before the world was only
  What I could see,
But now I fully realize
  The spirit world is alive.

God cares for little me
  For He touched me,
In my sorrow and concern,
  He reached out to me.

He cares for me,
  Little me, no great saint,
Just an ordinary person,
  How great is His love!

In church, I was taught
  That God is spirit and alive,
And I hoped it was true,
  Suddenly, I knew it was.

Oh! what a change
  It has made in my life,
Before, coping only with the seen,
  Now, I am comforted by His presence.

What is this life in the spirit?
  How does it function?
Can it be defined?
  Jesus, I need your help.

God used a yellow rose
  And inner voice to awaken me,
From passivity to newness,
  I have a new horizon to search.

Has God awakened you?
  If not, ask Him,
And when it happens,
  Your vista will expand.

You will seek His face,
  And learn to understand,
His ways and how
  They guide you.

It is like suddenly finding
  A door that was invisible,
And it opens and bids
  That you enter.

You enter and find,
  A world where prayer,
Bible studies, and retreats,
  Engage your mind.

You will come to
  Understand that God is alive,
Your sleepy life
  Will awaken to a new dawn.

Has God touched you
  You say, "He has not."
Well ask Him for His touch
  Have faith and He will touch you.


   DELIVERANCE PRAYER

(substitute your name and sin where noted)

Lord God, I (your name) have sinned
  Against you and need your forgiveness;
I have a sin addiction of (name the sin)
  And have tried not to sin but yet sin.

I cannot overcome temptations to sin
  Without your help, so please hear me
Have mercy on my soul and help me
  And I will avoid circumstances leading to sin.

Please heal me outright so I don't sin,
  If not outright send me the help I need
To live a life pleasing to you my God
  I ask this Father God, in the name of Jesus. 

 

ARE YOU A SON OR DAUGHER OF THE RESURRESTION ?

THERE A HELL FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT SONS OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS. LORD, I DON'T WANT TO GO THERE. SHOW ME THE WAY TO LIFE PLEASING TO YOU SWEET JESUS.
