I am a Father and Husband. I am a retired Marine and retired sworn member of law enforcement. Over the past several years I have finally started to actually do what I had heard a Christian should be doing since the days of my youth. I started to read my Bible daily; I started to pray daily, and have tried to be something of a light in a fallen world. Being a daily light has been a slow process for me.
I came to know Jesus Christ as a young boy. That relationship involved more of a please help me get out of some type of trouble I’d gotten myself into as opposed to please help me to be more obedient to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Because I realize now, after so many years, the only purpose I serve is to worship and glorify the Savior King. To be honest that obedience and edifying of God daily, which is a command from God for all who profess to be His followers, had not played much into my everyday thoughts and concerns, until now! Oswald Chambers would refer to my past so called relationship with Jesus Christ as "religious fraud."
God had to humble me in order to get my undivided attention, and He lovingly did! I now realize I have been stumbling and crawling, to the foot of the Cross of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for the better part of my adult life. I’m Joe six pack; I bring absolutely nothing to the Lord’s table, as I think about myself I realize just how truly helpless I have always been, like a sheep, vulnerable to predators on all sides. My only defense has been to get on my knees and beg the Lord for His Mercy and Grace, Forgiveness and LOVE.
Yet, for all my countless short comings, my sinful ways, Jesus Christ willfully and with purpose aforethought, chose to allow Himself to be nailed to a Cross for me. I don’t fully comprehend most of that, nor do I have the cognitive ability to comprehend what depths of LOVE must exist within my God, the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. A God that would allow Himself to be born a child, become a man, and then submit Himself to the horrors of crucifixion and death. Yet, that’s what Jesus (God), did for you and me; for that matter, what He’s done for everyone, past, present, and future.
I hope you’ll take a look around my website, I sincerely pray, that by the power of the Holy Spirit you'll obtain some clarity from this site. If your free will choice is to follow Jesus Christ, then I'll bid you, "Fair Winds and Following Seas," as your journey takes you ever closer to the foot of the Cross of Jesus Christ (The Savior of the World).
Your loving brother in Christ,
The purpose for this site will begin first with a question I pose to the reader. What will your current level of obedience to God's Will allow the Holy Spirit to accomplish through you? How can those who are unwilling to believe Jesus Christ is God, be reached? If we are available and obedient then through the Holy Spirit, God tells us we can do ALL things for His Kingdom, which then affords us access to those who currently refuse to believe. My prayer is by way of this site, the reader would allow themselves the ability to gain Holy Spirit driven clarity. By means of a verbal (video) and written testimony of one (me), who was pulled out of the muck and mire, pulled out of the darkness of everyday existence, and introduced into the Light by Jesus Christ, the Son of God, God Himself.
Jesus’ Love for me has changed everything!
I sincerely hope and pray whoever comes to this site will gain a bit of knowledge, by way of the Holy Spirit, which will bring them to a belief and faith that Jesus Christ is exactly who He says He is, the Son of God, God Himself. I promise you Jesus is God, whether you currently believe that or not. And I say that because I believe with every fiber of my being when you take your last breath, and your monitored life signs go horizontal, your eyes will close, but only for a moment, and then they'll open again, and standing before you in all His Glory, Majesty, and Splendor, will be the Savior of the World, Jesus Christ.
There Jesus will be, right there in front of you, in all His Glory and Power. He'll be close enough to touch, just as you'd heard He would be from all those Christians over all those many, many, years, who were either friends of yours or not. Unfortunately, at this point, if your choice was not to believe...it's too late, you missed it. God’s gift, which has been lovingly extended to you all your life, has now been retracted. For the one who chose not to believe, their eternal fate has already been determined. God’s once unconditional Love is now no longer available. However, ones belief, or lack thereof, will not be a prerequisite for knees hitting the deck; every knee will hit the ground in the presence of the Savior King, Jesus Christ. (Philippians 2:10-11)
Therefore, please, believe, so when you gaze upon the King, Jesus Christ, the Jesus you’ll look upon will be the Loving Savior King who welcomes you into eternal peace and joy. Not, the Ravenous Avenging Lion of Judah, who you chose not to believe in, and who now renders final judgement upon you, a judgement you and you alone have brought upon yourself. You’ll have no defense against His verdict which will sentence you to unending mental and physical pain, suffering, and horror, for all eternity. That eternal end state is not what I say it will be, it's what the Bible says it will be.
So once again, please choose Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, today, while that decision is still yours to make.
Because remember, today, let alone tomorrow, is not promised to anyone.
