Warning! Warning!




Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.” John 14:23


There are all sorts of warning signs in life. Near where I live on Interstate 65 both South and North bound near Exit 1 are signs with flashing lights warning motorists to slow from 70 to 65 because of a couple bad curves in the road. Numerous roll overs and other accidents have occurred here and the guardrails have been replaced more times than I can number. 

Warning signs are in God's word the Bible yet how many choose to go their own way and think the Bible is one big joke? Even well meaning brothers and sisters in Christ who maybe once had a decent and strong walk with the Lord are now in a lethargic state  or sinful lifestyle and choose to just ignore the scriptures and give heed to another way of life. God is far from them. I know some of these people. Only the Holy Spirit can draw them back to Him and wake them from the stupor Satan has them in. But keep praying. 

Don't listen to the voices in the world because they will mostly 100% of the time be wrong and lead you astray. if you say you are a Christian and love God then act like it. If you know you are doing something displeasing to the Lord then stop it. Satan has deceived so many people. The world we live in today is unrecognizable from the one I was in as a child. God's word is not old fashioned. Read it and do what it says today. If you have left God run back to Him. He can and does forgive. 

PRAYER: Lord Jesus my heart aches for those who know better yet choose to follow Satan and demonic stronghold spirits and have idols in their life choosing to put you on the back burner. These people know who they are.  I pray you will speak to their hearts and convict them drawing them back to you in a powerful way. In Jesus' name Amen.

    1. Are you the pastor I heard from who was wanting info on Church of the Nazarene in my area? Did you ever make it to Madison, AL in April. AS I recall that is when you had planned to visit the US>

  2. Becky: In Sunday school, we are studying a book, entitled Think, Act, Believe Like Jesus. It's by Randy Frazee. It has taken us a while to get through it. It is very well-written. He speaks of doing things that Christ does not like.
