The title I chose was to grab your attention.  The issues brought forth on blogs are what is on peoples hearts.  What is on peoples hearts is important to them, as it should be.  Blogs have given people a wonderful opportunity to express themselves.  Keep on expressing yourself.  It is your right as a citizen of our earth.

Let’s go beyond the surface and examine the issues that will make a difference in eternity.  John 15:5  Jesus said:  I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.  (NIV) No matter what good we do, or how good we do it, if isn’t done in Jesus’s name it will not count for anything in eternity.   Romans 3:10  There is no one righteous, not even one.  (NIV)  If you are not ignoring your conscience, the truth of the Word of God will hit your heart.

We think of our lives as being very important; but here is what God says in James 4:14  What is your life? you are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.  (NIV)  John 17:3  Now this is eternal life, that they may know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ[Yeshua HaMashiach] whom you have sent.  (NIV)
Our lives pass so quickly, do you want to make the most foolish gamble and put  off thinking about eternity until it is too late?

We all know people who are liars, but who does the Bible say a liar is?  1John2:22
Who is the liar?  It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ [Mashiach]
Who is the only truth?  we will find this answer in the following verse in the Bible.
John 14:6  Jesus said:  I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the father except through me.

One day we will have to give an account for our lives.  Hebrews 4:13-14  Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight.  Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.  (NIV)

So many do not understand the mercy and love the Father has for us.  The fact that you are still breathing is a sign of his love for you.  Your very breath is in His control.  If He wasn’t merciful and compassionate, you would have died long ago.  2nd Peter3:9
He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance[teshuvah] (NIV)

You may not understand God’s ways, but that is why he is God, and you are not.  Isaiah55:8-9  For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord[HASHEM].   His grace has appeared to you, but you just don’t know it.  Titus 2:11-14  For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.  It teaches us to say no to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope–the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ [Yeshua HaMashiach] who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. (NIV)

We are called to be worshippers of God, but most of us do not live our lives this way.
We focus our time and energy on things that do not please the Father.  The Bible says in Romans 1:25  They exchanged the truth of God for a  lie, and worshiped and served created things , rather than the Creator—who is forever praised.  Amen.  (NIV)

We have a choice to receive Jesus [Yeshua] in his mercy now, or experience him in his wrath in the judgement to come.   Revelation 6:15-17  Then the kings of the earth. the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains.  They called to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!  For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”  (NIV)  There will be no excuses in that day.  Romans 1:18-20  The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.  For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.  (NIV)

The biggest x-ray machine for our heart is what comes out of our mouths.  Matthew 15:18-19  But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man ‘unclean.’  For out of the heart comes evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.  These are what make a man unclean.  (NIV)  Matthew 12:36  Jesus[Yeshua] said:  But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgement for every careless word they have spoken.  For by your words you will be acquitted and by your words you will be condemned.  (NIV) 

If you know you are not right with God, repent [t’shuvah in Hebrew].   Repent  means to turn from doing things your way and turning to God’s ways.  Trust in Jesus [Yeshua], not yourself.  Ask Him to fill you with the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh]   Attend a Church that believes that the Bible is the inspired Word of God.  Get baptized.  Read your Bible daily and follow the teachings of Jesus [Yeshua]  Walk in His Love to all you come in contact with.
