Brothers and sisters, I want to start off by lifting up the name of God because He’s worthy to be praised so let’s give Him all honor and glory. God is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. There is none before Him and there will be none after Him. God is #1! God doesn’t make deals with people, He IS the real deal! God made us to serve Him. God should be first in our lives, not number 2 or 3 or 4, but He should be number 1. Say for instance, when we get paid from our jobs, before we pay any bills or anything we should take 10 percent of our paycheck or any income that we get and honor God with 10 percent of it. That’s called tithing. Malachi 3:10 says: Bring to the storehouse a full tenth of what you earn (tithe) so there will be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord-All Powerful. I will open the windows of heaven for you and pour out all the blessings you need. AMEN

I want to also say this, because some of you don’t believe in tithing or you believe and don’t do it, I want to add that God is not broke. God can never go bankrupt because all the money belongs to Him anyway. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. (1 Corinthians 10:26) The cattle on the thousand hills belong to Him. (Psalms 50:10) Really, tithing is for our benefit, it helps us to receive from God.

Now if things are not going your way financially you might want to consider tithing and offering. For those of you who don’t know Jesus, I beg you to get to know Him. Believe me, you won’t regret it. God’s Son, Jesus is the most important person who ever walked this earth. Jesus is the greatest man I know. I can’t speak for you. Jesus the Lamb of God who was slain before the foundation of the world for you and for me. We are alive today because of Jesus. You must understand, we didn’t wake up this morning on our own. It was God that touched us with the finger of love.

God is so loving, merciful and kind to us and yet we still turn our backs on Him sometimes (sin against Him). We all are guilty of that in some part and time of our life but yet He still loves us. God is a forgiving God. Yes, He will forgive you of your sins if you ask Him.

God is a gentle man, He doesn’t bombard His way into our lives. You have to ask Him to come into your heart. You have to ask Him to forgive you of your sins. And guess what, you have to even ask Him to save you! That’s the kind of God that we as believers in Christ serve. God is long-suffering, He is waiting on you to accept His Son as your savior, you must understand you can’t get to Heaven without Jesus. Jesus said in John 14:6 I am the way, the truth and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.

My heart goes out to those who are non-believers, those who don’t believe or trust in Jesus the Son of the Living God. May God have mercy on their souls. In closing, Let’s pray for this United States of America and all the leaders in the White House and in the town of Conway and it’s surrounding areas. Let’s pray for the lost people that they will receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. In fact, let’s pray for the whole world that God will intervene and move on the hearts of His people. Have Your way, God. In Jesus name.

My goal is to reach people and invite them to Christ with the gift God gave me by writing in the Log Cabin Democrat. So if it seems like I am repeating myself, it is for a reason. It’s not to put you down or make you feel guilty, it’s to let you know we need Jesus, without a doubt. There are so many of you that are listening to the wrong spirit that is not of God. Those spirits are lying spirits and they are trying to kill you before you receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior! These spirits are of the devil and they want you in hell with them. They want you to continue to live in sin and they want you to not have anything to do with Jesus Christ. So once again, I beg you to make Jesus your Lord and Savior — today because we could be here today and gone today and how you live your life on this earth, when you die is how you will stand before Jesus on the day of judgement. May God bless and keep you....AMEN.
