Welcome to another Scripture Sunday post. I pray that you will take some time to listen to this dramatized audio of this very important Book of the Bible, 2 Peter, as you go about your day at home, whether you are preparing or eating your meals, cleaning the room where you keep your computer, or before you turn in for the night.

God’s Word brings encouragement, guidance, correction, and comfort. But most of all, God’s Word reveals who He is to us, makes us realize our sinfulness in light of His complete holiness, and exposes false doctrines that hold us captive to lies and prevents us from seeing the truth about who Jesus Christ truly is and all that He accomplished for us through His sinless life, His once for all sacrifice on the cross which led to His death, His burial, and His glorious resurrection from the dead.

If you do not yet have the assurance of salvation because you are still trying to earn God’s forgiveness instead of simply placing your trust in Jesus Christ alone for your salvation, I pray that you would get yourself a Bible and begin to read it. I pray that you will come to the knowledge of the truth by the power of the Holy Spirit and choose to truly believe what it says and choose to fully place your trust in the good news of the Biblical gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-6), thus receiving Jesus Christ and all that He accomplished for you.

God’s Word tells us that the demons believe in God –and tremble (James 2:19). They also know who Jesus Christ is (Mark 1:24, Luke 4:34, Acts 19:15), and yet they will one day be cast into hell (Matthew 25:41). True belief acts upon it by simple faith. If you choose to truly believe what God’s Word says concerning Jesus Christ being God in human flesh, who came to this earth and lived a perfect, sinless life in order to become the spotless Lamb of God who paid the debt of your sin — and mine — in full, once for all, you will then be justified by His grace and clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ (Titus 3:4-7). Your sins will then be as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12), never to be remembered again (Isaiah 43:25). What joy you will then have if you choose to fully place your trust in Jesus Christ alone for your salvation!

The traditions of men add to the Word of God, thus nullifying it, (Mark 7:6-13) and lead many into confusion which hinders them from seeing all that Jesus Christ accomplished for them. Once someone who has been deceived has their eyes opened to the truth that can be found in God’s Word by the Spirit of God, they have the choice to continue clinging to the “Traditions” of men that offer no true hope for salvation, or to reject all that they once believed to be true, and instead choose to wholeheartedly believe the good news of the Biblical gospel. 

True forgiveness, joy, assurance, peace, and hope come through Jesus Christ alone. As a former Catholic I speak from experience. Don’t make the mistake of believing that there is a second chance after death; there is no place called “Purgatory” where you go to be purged for “temporal punishment due for sin” as the Catholic church teaches. (CCC Para 1472, 1473 – More on “purgatory” in light of Scripture at some point, Lord willing). God’s Word is very clear in Hebrews 1:3 about what Jesus Christ accomplished for us: “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.” Jesus Christ sat down, clearly showing that His work of redemption had been completely accomplished.

 

Thank you very much for stopping by today.

God Bless You

UPDATE:

Last series of Estate Sales ended yesterday, and the closing date for our Mom and Dad’s home is October 16th. When time allows, I will be helping my family clear the house for the next couple of weeks before I can get back to writing again.

PRAISE REPORT:

This past week I received news from the woman that I previously babysat for that she would like me to once again care for her little girl, so, praise the Lord, \0/ it appears that I now have a job which will mean that I won’t have to start looking for one after the closing date! Lord willing, I should then also have some time to begin writing again! Thank you very much to those of you who may have been praying for me! ♥

Welcome to another Scripture Sunday post. I pray that you will take some time to listen to this dramatized audio of the little, but extremely important Book of Jude as you go about your day at home, whether you are preparing or eating your meals, cleaning the room where you keep your computer, or before you turn in for the night.

God’s Word brings encouragement, guidance, correction, and comfort. But most of all, God’s Word reveals who He is to us, makes us realize our sinfulness in light of His complete holiness, and exposes false doctrines that hold us captive and prevents us from seeing the truth about who Jesus Christ is and all that He accomplished for us through His sinless life, His once for all sacrifice on the cross which led to His death, His burial, and His glorious resurrection from the dead.

If you do not yet have the assurance of salvation because you are still trying to earn God’s forgiveness instead of simply placing your trust in Jesus Christ alone for your salvation, I pray that you would take the time to listen to God’s Word in the video above. As you listen I pray that you will come to the knowledge of the truth by the power of the Holy Spirit and choose to truly believe by fully placing your trust in the good news of the Biblical gospel, thus receiving Jesus Christ and all that He accomplished for you. (God’s Word tells us that the demons believe in God –and tremble (James 2:19). They also know who Jesus is (Mark 1:24, Luke 4:34, Acts 19:15) and yet they will one day be cast into hell Matthew 25:41).

What joy you will then have if you choose to fully place your trust in Him alone for your salvation!

PERSONAL NOTE: After sitting through the funeral service/Mass (and I did sit; I did not stand or participate in the Mass) for my precious mom at the Catholic church that she once attended, and after hearing what the priest had to say, I am even more grieved and more determined to earnestly  contend for the faith and to write in order for God to use me to reach precious Catholics with Biblical truth in my upcoming posts. (That is why I chose the Book of Jude for today’s Scripture Sunday). However, please allow me some more time in order to grieve her loss and to deal with some important matters that must be attended to before I am able to get back to trying to focus on writing once again.

Thank you very much for stopping by.

God Bless You
