WARNING TO AMERICA: A Call to Repentance Before Judgement (Part 1)

This is a very long post, but worth reading through to the end.   Hopefully you’ll find that a good part of it may be descriptive of what is really happening at this present time.   However, I don’t recommend quitting your jobs unless you can still provide for your family needs and pay for your bills, etc.

Not only America, but the whole world is already experiencing God’s judgment.  We are already living in the ‘beginning of sorrows’ of the last days.  Cataclysmic events are occurring in America and everywhere with unprecedented record-breaking weather, climatic events, earthquakes and volcanic activities every day, many very unusual and increasing in frequency and intensity, not including on-going corruption and violence, immorality and perversions, and other social, economic, national security issues etc.

 The WRATH of GOD, the worst of the judgments is still to come, and we need to get ourselves right with God and get on His side of eternity.

By the Blood of the Lamb

This is the first part of a message that was sent to me by a brother in Christ back in October. I’m ashamed to say that it got put on the back burner during some hectic personal issues (fighting to resist mandatory flu shots with threat of termination). No excuses though, this is important information. PLEASE FORGIVE ME BROTHER BOB!

Americans,

As a Holy Spirit trained Christian, understanding of the big picture has been a privilege to learn. There are so many aspects to learn, and it has taken me many, many years to put all the threads together in some areas. I do not expect most of the readers to understand. These subjects evolve, knowing the Word of God, religions, economic, political, judicial, media, and all the threads that connect to each subject.

The point of this article is to encourage people to put their pride aside, and…

God's Hidden Nuggets for the Endtimes

The Reasons For Jesus Coming to Earth 

Knowing why Jesus came to earth is of utmost importance to our lives now and hereafter. There is a heaven to gain and a hell to shun, and it all depends upon what we do with this person Jesus that will determine where we will end up.  We will look at scriptures on why Jesus came and why He is coming again to earth.  It is all about God’s 7000-year plan for mankind as revealed in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.  The reason and purpose for Jesus Christ coming to earth are myriad, revelational, and eternal.  The Bible states ‘..by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men’ Ro5:12.  Jesus was sent by God to save us, by dying on the cross for our sins

The Faithful Man

A WONDERFUL TESTIMONY- about God’s love and street witnessing!

Karina's Thought

One night at a small church in Atlanta, Georgia, a man shared how he had become a Christian while in Sydney, Australia.

“I was at the street corner in Kings Cross,” the man began, “when I felt a tug on my sleeve. Turning, I found myself face to face with a street bum. Before I could say anything, the man simply asked me, ‘Mister, if you were to die tonight, where would you spend eternity?’ ” “That question troubled me over the next three weeks,” the man continued. “I had to find an answer, and I ended up giving my life to Christ.”

The pastor of the Atlanta church was amazed that a man on a street corner could have such an impact. But imagine his amazement when, three years later, another man came to his church and gave an almost identical testimony. He, too, had been at Kings Cross…

PREACHING IS A RISKY BUSINESS!

"IF THE WORLD HATE YOU, YE KNOW THAT IT HATED ME BEFORE IT HATED YOU."  (John 15:18)

“IF THE WORLD HATE YOU, YE KNOW THAT IT HATED ME BEFORE IT HATED YOU.”         (John 15:18)

“…YE SHALL BE HATED OF ALL NATIONS FOR MY NAME’S SAKE.”

Matthew 24:9; 10:22

Matthew 14:3-4, 10  John the Baptist imprisoned for preaching against adultery and is beheaded by King Herod at the request of Herodias, his brother’s wife.

For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife.

For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

Luke 4:28-30  Jesus is thrown out of church for preaching and was about to be killed when He escaped.

28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,

29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong.

30 But he passing through the midst of them went his way,

John 8:59  Jesus was nearly stoned, but hid Himself and escaped out of the temple.

59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Acts 4:2-4  Peter and John put into prison overnight for preaching that Jesus rose from the dead.  After their release they continued preaching and many more people were converted.

 And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,

Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.

And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.

Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.

Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus: Reversal in the Afterlife

This post points out the reality of eternity, the rewards or lack thereof, that even signs may not convince unbelievers to repent if they will not believe the Word of God.  But for those who do repent, they will gain salvation and heaven, unlike the unrepentant who will be forever separated from God in a place of suffering and torment.

“Of Such Is the Kingdom of God”- Children’s Ministry in Philippines

Feeding programs are popular ways to share the gospel of Christ with children in remote areas.

FEEDING PROGRAMS-  BRINGING JESUS TO THE PEOPLE

Many families come to know about the love of God and His gift of salvation that He offers ALL who will come to Him.   Jesus said,

“Let the children come to me, and don’t stop them: for the kingdom of God is made up of those with childlike faith.”  (Mark 10:14, paraphrased)

We do a lot of singing and action songs and simple craft activities with the children like this paper folding of a cross.  One sheet of paper folded like a paper plane and one tear done very carefully, will result in a cross with the scraps that make the word ‘LIFE’.  These beautiful Filipino children are so well behaved.  In these pictures we worked with 45 or so kids in a tight, confined space and the miracle is that no one lost their tiny paper scraps to complete their activity!

It is truly amazing that with outreach programs like this, hundreds of children and adults are able to be taught about eternal life, the gift of God to all who believe:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him (Jesus) should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  (John 3:16)

Parents and grandparents who accompany the children to a feeding program event will also be taught the gospel by church workers and missionaries like myself and my husband.  Then afterwards, everyone will be served delicious hot sopa’ which is like a light milky macaroni soup with bits of chicken or thin slices of sausage.  That is my favorite Filipino comfort food.

At another feeding program in a ‘poorer’ area the folks lined up with their bowls and spoons for plain hot noodles dished out from a huge pot, and they were invited to attend the barangay/community church.

Sometimes special services are held at night and because there will always be a meal served, it seems like a whole barangay will be walking on a road (no lights) toward a church at dusk.  Before the service is over, many more people will have arrived and the small country church would be bursting at its seams!   Later, meals would be handed to those lined up in several lines for a late dinner and bottled drink.  Again, respect and order always prevails.  I love the Filipino people!  And God loves them even more!

You know, writing this post makes me miss being on the mission field!

SOUNDING THE SHOFAR- A Recap

A RECAP OF WHAT THE SOUNDING THE  SHOFAR BLOG POSTS ARE ABOUT

THE PURPOSE FOR THIS BLOG IS TO ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, to tell you that God loves you, and wants to bless you and save you.  This is as simple as believing in Him and accepting His gift of salvation and eternal life; to believe in the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ for our  sins.   It is about having faith in God’s Word, the Bible and to live a life pleasing to God, to obey His two great commandments of LOVING GOD and LOVING ONE ANOTHER.

The emphasis in SOUNDING THE  SHOFAR- Exhortations for the End Times was about faith in God and the importance of studying the Bible to learn how to please God and fulfill His plan and purpose for our lives,  and whether you attend church or not is up to you.  My advice to you is to SEEK GOD FIRST OF ALL, SEEK a relationship with HIM, ask Him to make Himself real to you, to come into your life and give it meaning!

It may come as a surprise to some of you that CHURCH is not what you should seek. CHURCH, RELIGION, ‘BEING SPIRITUAL’ WILL NOT SAVE YOU because SALVATION IS ASSURED ONLY BY FAITH IN THE NAME OF JESUS.  Only a personal relationship with Jesus matters and nothing else! And it is the Holy Spirit that reveals God to us and teaches us what God is saying to us in the Bible.  Man can and will lead us astray from the Truth, but God never lies or deceives us.  Which brings us to…

SOUNDING THE  SHOFAR- The Enemy in Our Midst.  These posts will emphasize that while we have a Heavenly Father who wants to bless us, we also have an ENEMY of our souls who want to destroy us.  It is SATAN, the ‘Enemy in Our Midst’ who wants to do everything he can to STEAL away our blessings of salvation and eternal life with God in heaven.  Satan’s desire is to rob us of LOVE, PEACE, AND JOY that God wants to bless us withSatan’s goal is to DESTROY lives and take as many souls to hell with him as possible.  Satan is our ADVERSARY, the ENEMY IN OUR MIDST  who seeks to keep us from the blessings God has for our lives.  Satan’s main strategies are LIES and DECEPTION, and he uses others to do his evil works. 

This is the topic being discussed now, recognizing the strategies and devices of Satan, and how to resist his power and influence in our lives. To benefit from the coming posts, if you haven’t done so, it would be good for you to go back and read from Chapter 1 of my eBook,  SOUNDING THE  SHOFAR- Exhortations for the End Times- Having a personal relationship with God; Chapter 2 Pleasing God, Chapter 3 The Power of God’s Word, etc.

A different Christmas story

God So Loved the World- Blog Update

To all Shofar viewers of God’s Enduring Love and ‘God’s Hidden Nuggets’, all 78 visitor countries and recent new countries: Colombia, Algeria, Qatar, Serbia, Somalia and Panama-

GREETINGS in the name of Jesus Christ, who is LORD of all, and is EMMANUEL- God with us!  We love you and God loves you! ♥ ♥ ♥

This is a message from Jesus to us:

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:  no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.             (John 14:1-7)

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. . . (John 14:27-28a)

Jesus intercedes for you and I as He spoke to His Father when his work on earth was done:

Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. . .and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  (John 17:20-21, 23b)

Jesus came to seek and save the lost.  (Luke 19:10)

God is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”                (2 Pet 3:9b)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  (John 3:16-18)
