Love Them Into the ChurchWritten by Jessica Gerald (Pen Name)
1 John 4:7-12
Sometimes even as Christians we tend to be judgemental or critical of someone who is not a believer or isn't as far in their Christian walk as others. We may look at a person's behavior in scorn. We may not even realize we do it, for we have no intention of hurting them.
Even though my sons have been raised in church and brought up in a Christian home, at ages seventeen and twenty-one, God is definitely not finished with them yet. They're not perfect. They are also at a vulnerable age where they are questioning their faith, Bible, and beliefs which they have been taught.
Thank God, we attend a church that is very kind and tolerant. The truth is preached, but sinners are welcomed, not condemned. I'm so glad, because right now it is an effort to even get them to go to church. If they thought people were going to gossip about them, judge them, or shun them because they are not measuring up, I don't think they would go at all.
Revelations A Study, Conclusion. Written by Rev.Anthony Smith
Revelations A Study, Conclusion. Section 17 is conclusion of our study of Revelations. We have learned many things about end of time, vast number to be killed, false religion, doctrine and The Anti-christ. I thank you for spending time with me. The next series will be on Daniel and we will continue indepth study of Revelations as it relates to prophecys of Daniel. If there is any special study or questions that you may need answered, feel free to submit your request and I will send them to you. I am always in your service in name of Christ. Section 17.Chapter 21:1 thru 22:21, The new heaven and a new earth. Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for first heaven and first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. The oceans will no longer exist. Isa_65:17-19, Isa_66:22; 2Pe_3:13 Psa_48:1-3, Psa_87:3; Isa_1:21, Isa_52:1; Jer_31:23 Isa 54:5 For thy Maker is thine husband; LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer Holy One of Israel; The God of whole earth shall he be called. All false religions will be gone never to be heard of again. There will no longer be any debate on meaning of scripture, for all will be revieled. The doctrines that have seperated many christians will be no longer. We will all be members of one true church. Its name is The Church of First Born. Verses 1 thru 7 are promises from God to all that have believed upon His Son. Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. Rev 21:8 reviels type of people that will never enter into Heaven. ”But fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is second death.” The existance of Hell is rejected by many but if we are to believe in Heaven we must also believe in Hell. For both were created by God. All these verses are literial. Rev.21:9 thru 27 gives description of City of God, that were are to inhabit. Rev 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in Lamb's book of life.Isa 35:8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
