The Many Beautiful Faces Of Jesus Christ

I was reading the Bible and these verses came alive in my spirit. And I just closed my eyes and thought about all the people that I have met in my life. And after reading these verses, I noticed that all the people that I have met. Was the many faces of Jesus. And I cried. Why?

Let me explain:

In Matthew 25:31-46 it says it all and why I cried,

31. When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32. And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33. And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35. For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36. Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38. When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39. Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40. And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

41. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

42. For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43. I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

44. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

45. Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

46. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

What Jesus is saying here is, a blessed reward will be given to some and a warning of judgement coming for others. There is a judgement coming for those who did not take care of Jesus while they lived their life on this earth.

Oh My God, This is why I know I have not done my part and I am so sorry for letting you down Jesus. Lord please forgive me. I'm so sorry.

Listen everyone, this is very important. I hope and pray that I will be able to explain to you all what God has put on my heart to share with you in this message.

I pray that you and I never ever turn our backs on Jesus again.

Here is the message, it is a warning of judgement for some and a blessed reward for others. So, please read this message very carefully.

In Matthew 25:31-46, it tells everyone of us, what ever we do to anyone we met in our life's journey on this earth, we do to Jesus...

That is why I titled this article "The Many Beautiful Faces Of Jesus Christ".

In verse (45) Jesus said, "Then shall he (Jesus) answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me".

Oh My God, I have many times through out my life, have gotten angry, and turned my back on you. Because I did it to someone that I met in my life. Lord I am so sorry. Please forgive me. In Jesus name I pray. Help me Jesus to love and forgive others and help me help people like you do. From this day forward, I want to love like you do Jesus.

Every day I still fall short of loving Jesus, because it shows how short I fall in loving others. Because, what I do to others I do to Jesus. Because I know now we can't separate the two. That is what Jesus said, in verse (45) read it again (Jesus said, "Then shall he (Jesus) answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me)

See, to be honest with you all. I still struggle at times and get upset when someone walks slow in front of me. Or when I am driving down the highway and someone cuts me off and gets in front of me. I immediately get upset before I know it.

And now I know, that each time I get upset at someone, I am actually getting upset at you Jesus. Because Jesus said, what ever I do to someone else, I do to Him. Lord help me be a more loving and better person. I'm so sorry Jesus. Please forgive me Jesus.

It takes love to overcome the hate in the world. And it starts with us. That's what Jesus is saying here.

See, I now realized what Jesus was saying in these verses. I learned a hard lesson here. And it took the power of the Holy Spirit to reveal it to me. As I love others, I am loving God Himself. Jesus said, the 2 greatest commandments are, to love God with all your heart, soul and mind. And to love your neighbor as yourself.

We read this in Luke 10:27

27. So he (Jesus) answered and said, “ ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and love ‘your neighbor as yourself.’”

People, I don't know about you. But this message is so powerful and a staggering revelation to me, that it has change my way of seeing people through the eyes of Jesus now.

Man I have heard these verses and read these verses over and over and it never came to life in my spirit until now. Wow, all I can say is, Lord please forgive me. I never realized until now. I'm so sorry.

Jesus is telling us all, the body of Christ world wide. Treat everyone from now own you meet everyday, as you would treat Jesus Himself. Because that is what we do when we treat others with kindness. We treat Jesus with kindness.

And not only that. Jesus said for us to love and forgive our enemies. I think that is the hardest part to do for many people world wide. But we must, with the help of the Holy Spirit. Because Jesus said, as we forgive other we will be forgiven. See, not forgiving someone holds you in bondage. Forgiving sets you free. Jesus said, the truth will set you free. Because we are all created in His image.

We read this in Genesis 1:26

26. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Ask yourself this question and be honest with yourself. If you saw a homeless person on the streets from now own, after reading this article. Will you help them? Or would you turn a blind eye to their pain and hunger and walk away? Remember, Jesus said, as you do unto them you do to Him.

I now give a few bucks to every one who is down on their luck. And I tell them Jesus told me to give you this. And I say, "Jesus Loves You."

People, let us all start today loving others with love in action. By giving joyfully. Because faith without works is dead. Give through love in faith trusting God will take care of you every step of the way, the rest of your life. God loves a cheerfully giver.

Take up your cross and follow Jesus. Jesus really wants to show you something very special. Just follow Him and learn from Him daily. And never look back again. Always remembering the story of Lots wife. Always remember this, Jesus is always moving forward. See, if we stay in the past we are not moving forward.

Let the past go. And look to Jesus and follow Him. I know what I am talking about here. It took me 9 years to let go of my past. And now I am set free to live my new life in Jesus Christ. Looking to the future.

Giving that is not given out of love is worth nothing in God's eyes. It is worthless. We all must ask the Holy Spirit help us learn to love to give what God has given us. This means giving our time, or taking the time to spend a few minutes with a friend or family member to encourage them and lift them up.

It also means giving some money to help someone out and not expecting them to repay you. I always tell everyone I give money to, to help someone out down the road, that is how they pay me back.

It also means to give a hug, a smile and tell people how much they mean to you. Just start loving people by being a friend. If you want to be loved, then be lovable. Just be the person God created you to be. And that person is you.

God will take great care of you. Just follow Jesus. And the miracles will follow you and also your blessing from God.

We read in Malachi 3:10 it says.

10. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

God is telling us all test Him by giving out of love and see if He will pour out a blessing on us that we will not have enough room to store it.

So, now we have so much that we have to give it away because we have too much. Now after we give that away. We receive another pouring out of blessings on us we have to give that away. And this continues over and over again.

You can't out give God. No one can. I have seen blessings like this happen in my own walk with Jesus.

See, the only love we keep is the love we give away.

We read in Deuteronomy 15:10 it says,

10. Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto.

God is saying here, that if we give freely or joyfully out of love for others. God Himself will bless us in all we do. We must through faith believe what God says. He will do for us. And by faith He will bring what He says to pass. And you and I will be living in His total pouring out of blessings on us daily. So we can be a blessing to others.

We can only imagine the rewards God has in store for us, who love Him by loving others. Here is an awesome you tube video that will end this article with an awesome praise gift to God.

May God richly bless you and your family.

What It All Means To Me

It all began at 4 am Friday morning on 07-08-11. I started having server chest pains and could hardly breath. I put off waking my wife up. Hoping that the pain would stop. No matter how I would sit or lay on the couch the pain stayed the same.

So about 6 am two hours after it all began. I could not take it anymore. I woke my wife up and told her what was taking place in my chest. And she immediately took charge and took me to the Emergency Room.

And the doctors was all around me hooking me up to machines. And I looked to my left as all this was happening and I notice my wife Pat. And I felt a peace come over me. I have to say she is a amazing lady. She never left my side.

They gave me two morphine shots so I could breath over the pain. They finally put me in a small room so they could watch my vital signs. I stayed in that room till Saturday morning. They released me from the hospital at 10:30 am Saturday. I was in the hospital for 27 and half hours. They are still not sure what caused the pain and shortness of breath. I have to go for a stress test Monday.

I need to back up here and tell you what happened during the 27 and a half hours stay in the hospital.

While I laid on the hospital bed. I started thinking about all my family and friends. And I started praying to God. Thanking Him for such caring family and friends. That I know I don't deserve. But God see it differently. He loves us so much.

And I knew what was causing all the pain and shortness of breath, that was so server that they had to give me 2 morphine shots.

I was being attacked by the devil. He was out to get me. So I started praying. He is very angry at me because I post messages on my 2 blog sites, sharing the love of Jesus world wide. He would love to see me dead. But Jesus still has a mission for me to finish for him.

See, a sure sign of being a lukewarm christian is when the devil is not attacking you. Because you are not doing anything to be a threat to him. You could be walking with him, not against him.

I started rebuking the devil in the name of Jesus. As I laid there and my mind started to wonder as I watched my wife asleep in the recliner. I can not believe that God loves me so much that He gave me a gift to enjoy as my wife Pat. I really respect that lady.

How do you even start counting all your blessings that God gives us daily? We can't name them all. There are so many. All I could say in my prayer was. Thank you Jesus for everything.

The Two Blog Sites Must Be Completed Soon

As I laid there and my wife was asleep. My two blog sites came to mind. And a urgency came over me to complete my mission that Jesus has me doing. And that is to share the Gospel and try to reach as many people as I can world wide. I started to pray sincerely with all my heart that Jesus would some how some way, help me do what He has call me to do. And this verse came to me Psalms 37:4-5

4. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

5. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

My God, I became so excited after reading these 2 verses. It help me to stay focused and continue writing what God has to say, to us today.

I realized, as I laid there in bed. I don't have a long time finish the race and the good fight. So I prayed that God will touch the messages, that He has me writing and sharing with you all. Hoping they will offer you all a ray of hope and to help you trust in Jesus and let Him speak to your heart by reading the Bible and through your prayers.

God gives us His gifts in this life, only to bless others, not for us to keep for our self.

It is still amazing to me that Jesus loves me so much. That He chose me to share His message of love with the beautiful people all over the world.

May God richly bless you and your family.

Your Fruits Are Showing

Jesus said that we will know unbelievers or Born Again Christians by their fruits. Just to let you know, your fruits showing, and you can't hide them from anyone.

I will begin this article by sharing with you what God has called me to do for His Kingdom. First to let you know, that I have decided to put Jesus first in my life. And second, I will stay focused on the calling that God has put on my heart. And that is to share the Gospel to the world. By using the Internet as a vehicle to accomplish this mission. And by writing articles and posting them on my blog site for Jesus. To reach the lost souls world wide for Jesus Christ.

A brief story about writing Articles for Jesus.

I just thought I would share with you. That God has really done an amazing thing for me. It has become very easy for me to write Articles for Jesus now. I have a stack of Articles that I have written, and they are ready to be publish. There was a time when I struggled very hard, just to come up with a title, much less the content for the rest of the article.

Now I actually wake up with a article in my thoughts, the complete article from the title to the end of the article. If you was to ask my wife Pat. She would tell you that is true. The words for articles flow almost daily. And all I can say is, thank you Jesus.

Back in 1984 God called me to build a 12 foot by 6 foot cross and walk where ever the Holy Spirit led me. To share with everyone I met, that "Jesus Loves You". And that calling has never left me.

I would pray that God would give me boldness as I walked with the cross to share the message of love and forgiveness of our sins through Jesus Christ. The boldness that I prayed for so I would become a good street wittiness of the Gospel. And the boldness came over me so strong. That I cared less what people thought about me walking with the cross, sharing the love of Jesus. And the same boldness has stayed with me even to this day. As I share the same message of Jesus Christ world wide by way of the Internet, and writing articles and blogging.

I know that I must decrease and Christ must increase. I feel in my spirit as Moses did when he received the calling from God at the burning bush. I am to go and bind Satan in the Name Of Jesus, to demand that Satan is to let Gods people go, in the Name Of Jesus.

I have a very heavy burden to reach out to those who are lost and for those who are being deceived by ministers who are living the "life style of the rich and famous" from the money that they receive, that is donated to their church. Known as the "Prosperity Gospel" or "Seeker Friendly Gospel". If you can call it a Gospel at all?

I am also deeply disturbed. Why? Because I know that some of the people I see walking around me daily are going to hell. And they have no clue what is ahead of them. And I want to reach out to them. But they are to busy with life. That they don't have the time to think about eternal things right now. This is so sad. And it bothers me deeply. But what else can I do. Even Jesus could not save everyone. Because of their harden hearts. I wrote a article about this called "Why Did God Harden Pharaoh's Heart?" Read it if you get a chance. It explains a harden heart and why God allows it to happen.

Thanks so much everyone.

I am so thankful for the prayers from my online prayer partners, world wide. You all really mean so much to me. And may God Bless you and your families.

The problems that the world is going through today, can only be solved by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But they also will not listen because of their harden hearts.

OK now, on to the message about the title of this Article.

"Your Fruits Are Showing"

I guess the title of this Article surprised you? But it is a very true Biblical statement.

The fruits of the Born Again Believers.

(1.) We read about this in (Galatians 5:22,23) These are the fruits that we will see in the life of every true Born Again Christians any where on earth.

22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

It says that we will know true Born Again Christians by these fruits in their life.

The fruits of the lost or unbelievers.

(2.) Now in (Galatians 5:19-21) We see what the fruits of the ones who live in the flesh who are not saved and what their fruits will be.

19. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20. Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21. Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

We all as Born Again Christians must receive the power of the Holy Spirit. If we want to become an effective witnesses for Jesus Christ. Jesus told his disciples to wait and don't do anything until they are empowered by the Holy Spirit from on high. Then they will be His witnesses. So we also need this power from on high to produce the fruits of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We can't do it without the help of the Holy Spirit.

We all must pray that God will fill us with His Holy Spirit, so we can become life changing witnesses for Jesus Christ. We can't accomplish this by our own will. It will not work.

We must allow the Holy Spirit to produce the fruits of the spirit in our life.

In (John 15:8) it says, that God is Glorified when we bear much fruits. If we trully want to Glorify God and if we really want to be known as one of Jesus' deciples. Then we must bear much fruits.

In (Luke 6:44) it says, that every tree is known by its fruits.

When I read these verses and I pray that God will let the Holy Spirit produce the fruits of the spirit in and through my life. So I will Glorify God in my life.

The verses above is God's gauge for us to measure whether or not we are walking in the Holly Spirit or walking as a lukewarm believer. Which God says there is no middle ground when it comes to going to Heaven or Hell. We are either lost or saved. Period!

So be very prayerful at all times and watch the gauge in (Galatians 5:22,23) about producing the fruits of the Holy Spirit in and through your life. Because once we died, it is to late to try to get it right again. We only have one chance to get it right. And God told us how to do it in the Bible. That is why we must read the Bible and pray daily.

The first thing that the Holy Spirit will produce in our live will be, the fruit of love. The kind of love that we can forgive everyone and even love and forgive our enemies. God's kind of love that He produces through us. A love beyond our understanding.

A love that has a burden to reach the lost people for Jesus Christ. And a love that has a compassion to help the poor people who are starving and living in poverty all across the globe.

In America were we have plenty it is easy to forget about those who are starving and who are poor. I will share this with you. I am being convicted by the Holy Spirit to also reach out to the needy and poor people world wide. I must do my part in the Name Of Jesus. Please pray that God will show me the way to help feed these starving people. Listen I am deeply burden in my spirit while I write this Article.

Please pray for me. That I will be able to find a Godly mission to help support, to help feed the starving children and the poor people around the world. And pray that the Lord will provide the funds to do so.
