Living for Christ or for Yourself?

This world is spinning out of control, and the whirlwind now being seen throughout America will grow and will intensify.  You see…there is a purposeful separating taking place through the results of the whirlwind.  This separating will clearly define who is for God, and who only talks the talk of being for God, and then those who not even talk the talk but go it alone under their own power and will.  God’s Word says clearly; there is an appointed time for everyone to die, and after death judgement.   No matter how rich or famous, no matter how powerful, no matter how great your position of influence or visibility, everyone is appointed to die.  Death is the great equalizer.  Upon death where will you spend Eternity!?

DID YOU KNOW
THESE FACTS?

Death
is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death!

Make a
personal reflection about this…….

Very
interesting, read until the end……

It is
written in the Bible (Galatians 6:7):

‘Be not deceived; God is not mocked:

for whatsoever a man sow,

that shall he also reap…

Here are some men and women

who mocked God :

John Lennon
(Singer):

Some years before, during

‘Christianity will end, it will disappear.
I do not have to argue about that…
I am certain.
Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple,
today we are more famous than Him’ (1966).

Lennon, after
saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ,
was shot six times.

Tancredo Neves
(President of Brazil ):

During
the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes
from his party, not even God would remove him from
Presidency.

Sure he got the votes,
but he got sick a day before being made President,
then he died.

Cazuza
(Bi-sexual Brazilian
composer, singer and poet):

During a show in Canecio ( Rio de Janeiro ),
while smoking his cigarette,
he puffed out some smoke into the air
and said: ‘God, that’s for you.’

He died at
the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner.

The man who built the Titanic

After the construction of Titanic,
a reporter asked him how safe the
Titanic would be.

With an ironic tone he said:
‘Not even God can sink it’

The result:
I think you all know what happened to the Titanic

Marilyn Monroe
(Actress)

She was visited by Billy Graham
during a presentation of a show.

He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her.

After hearing what the Preacher had to say,
she said:
‘I don’t need your Jesus’.

A week later,
she was found dead in her apartment

Bon Scott
(Singer)

The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC.
On one of his 1979 songs he sang:

‘Don’t stop me;
I’m going down all the way,
down the highway to hell’.

On the 19th of February 1980,
Bon Scott was found dead,
he had been choked by his own vomit.

Campinas(IN 2005)

In Campinas , Brazil , a group of friends, drunk,
went to pick up a friend……

The mother accompanied her to the car
and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends
and she said to the daughter holding her hand,
who was already seated in the car:

‘My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You.’

She responded:
‘Only If He (God) travels In the trunk,
cause inside here…..
It’s already full.’

Hours later,
news came by that they had been involved in a fatal accident,
everyone had died,

the car could
not be recognized what type of car it had been,
but surprisingly, the trunk was intact.

The police
said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact.
To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs,
none was broken

Christine Hewitt
(Jamaican Journalist and entertainer)
said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book
ever written.

In June 2006
she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle.

Many more
important people have forgotten that there is no other name
that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus.

Many have died,
but only Jesus died and rose again,
and he is still alive and He is calling you.

‘Jesus’

This very short message is NOT a joke!

This message is long on prayer that you will not be able to shake and dismiss what you just read.

 

 

The Lord Jesus Christ said: “Not all who sound religious are really godly people. They may refer to me as ‘Lord’, but still won’t get to heaven…all who listen to my instructions and follow them are wise, like a man who build his house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents, and the floods rise and the storm winds beat against his house, it won’t collapse, for it is built on rock. But those who hear my instructions and ignore them are foolish, like a man who builds his house on sand. For when the rains and floods come, and storm winds beat against his house, it will fall with a mighty crash” (Matthew 7:21-27).

Some of the saddest words spoken are: “We don’t have room for you.”  Has that ever been said to you? You know…we have no room for you on our team. We have no room for you in our business. How about someone saying, “I have no room for you in my heart.”

 

Max Lucado in his book When Christ Comes wrote:

“Jesus knew the sound of those words. He was still in Mary’s womb when the innkeeper said, ‘We don’t have room for you.’

When the residents of his hometown tried to stone him…’We don’t have room for a prophet in this town.’

When Jesus hung on the cross, wasn’t the message one of utter rejection? We don’t have room for you in this world.”

 

Even today Jesus is given the same rejection. He goes from heart to heart, asking if he might enter. But more often than not, he hears the words: “Sorry. Too crowded. I don’t have room for you here.”

 

But every so often, Jesus is welcomed. Someone throws open the door of their heart and invites him to stay.

 Jesus said

‘If you are embarrassed about me,

I will also be embarrassed
about you before my father.’

Just repeat this prayer and see how God moves!!

‘Lord…
I love you and I need you, thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and ask you to
come into my heart; I choose to make you Lord of my life, and I ask you to make me the kind of person You want me to be.
I pray in Jesus’ name.
Amen.’

I pray you don’t ignore this message and let God bless you .
