TREASURES FROM GODS WORD

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4)
By the valley of weeping we come to Zion. One would have thought mourning and being blessed were in opposition, but the infinitely wise Savior puts them together in this Beatitude. What He has joined together let no man put asunder. Mourning for sin—our own sins, and the sins of others—is the Lord's seal set upon His faithful ones. When the Spirit of grace is poured upon the house of David, or any other house, they shall mourn. By holy mourning we receive the best of our blessings, even as the rarest commodities come to us by water. Not only shall the mourner be blessed at some future day, but Christ pronounces him blessed even now.
The Holy Spirit will surely comfort those hearts which mourn for sin. They shall be comforted by the application of the blood of Jesus and by the cleansing power of the Holy Ghost. They shall be comforted as to the abounding sin of their city and of their age by the assurance that God will glorify Himself, however much men may rebel against Him. They shall be comforted with the expectation that they shall be wholly freed from sin before long and shall soon be taken up to dwell forever in the glorious presence of their Lord.



DAILY PROMISE FROM GODS WORD


If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
(John 15:18-20)
The believer in Christ should not shrink from suffering or persecution, but should take heart in the fact that his suffering is counted as due to Christ. For of course, the redeemed children will be the object of scorn and derision! The world despised and hated the most loving, caring, hospitable, and merciful man to ever walk the earth; if they should hate Him so, how can we not expect them to hate those who follow that man—Christ Jesus!


Stay in the fight.
Rest, if you have to, but don't quit.
May God Bless and Keep you
Bob Messer
Pastor

There is only one way to Heaven

Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me." (John 14:6) http://blb.sc/002Vj3

Good works cannot save you.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)  http://blb.sc/002UZQ

Trust Jesus Christ today! Here's what you must do:

  1. Confess to God that you are a sinner, in need of a savior.

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (Romans 3:23)   http://blb.sc/002T3j

"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" (Romans 5:12) http://blb.sc/002Uqg

"If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."

 (1 John 1:10)  http://blb.sc/002NZl

2           Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.

"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." (John 3:16) http://blb.sc/002KIL

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) http://blb.sc/002Uqg

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:9)  http://blb.sc/002O5E

Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Saviour.

"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:10)  http://blb.sc/002O5E

3     Turn from sin and Repent

Jesus said: "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."

(Luke 13:5)  http://blb.sc/002q2Q

"And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:" (Acts 17:30) http://blb.sc/002SM0

 

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

 (Romans 10:13)   http://blb.sc/002O5E

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" (John 1:12)  http://blb.sc/002NJc

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17)  http://blb.sc/002N2S


If you have received Jesus Christ as your Saviour, as a Christian you should:

  1. Read your Bible every day to get to know Christ better.

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)  http://blb.sc/002S3B

"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." (Psalms 119:105)  http://blb.sc/002y1g

  1. Talk to God in prayer every day.

"And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

" (Matthew 21:22)  http://blb.sc/002bwg

"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." (Philippians 4:6)  http://blb.sc/002Vby

  1. Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority.

"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (Matthew 28:19)  http://blb.sc/002mxR

"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."
  (Hebrews 10:25)  http://blb.sc/002Pal  

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" (2 Timothy 3:16)  http://blb.sc/002RWu

  1. Tell others about Christ.

"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15)  http://blb.sc/0036hZ  

"For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!" (1 Corinthians 9:16)  http://blb.sc/002v2C

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (Romans 1:16)  http://blb.sc/002StL
