Wars...and Peace...Do You Know the Messiah?

"First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all those who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity." I Timothy 2:1-2 HCSB

Matthew 24:6-14 " [Jesus said]...You are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, because these things must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these events are the beginning of birth pains.

“Then they will hand you over for persecution, and they will kill you. You will be hated by all nations because of My name. Then many will take offense, betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be delivered. This good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the world as a testimony to all nations. And then the end will come."

Hebrews 13:5,6 "Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, I will never leave you or forsake you. Therefore, we may boldly say:

The Lord is my helper;
I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?"

I JOhn 5:1-13 "Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Messiah has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father also loves the one born of Him. This is how we know that we love God’s children when we love God and obey His commands. For this is what love for God is: to keep His commands. Now His commands are not a burden, because whatever has been born of God conquers the world. This is the victory that has conquered the world: our faith. And who is the one who conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

"Jesus Christ—He is the One who came by water and blood, not by water only, but by water and by blood. And the Spirit is the One who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water, and the blood—and these three are in agreement. If we accept the testimony of men, God’s testimony is greater, because it is God’s testimony that He has given about His Son. (The one who believes in the Son of God has this testimony within him. The one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony God has given about His Son.) And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

The one who has the Son has life. The one who doesn’t have the Son of God does not have life. I have written these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life."

Jesus gives life eternal to those who believe in Him. This world is shaking with sin and disaster and wars and rumors of wars...But to those who know Jesus as Lord He will never leave you or forsake you, no matter what comes through the hands of men. Do you know Jesus? Do you want peace for your matter what comes your way? Do you know the Messiah, the Savior?  You can simply talk to Jesus, ask Him to forgive you for your sin and accept His sacrifice for you of His life and His blood. 
And when the troubles too can boldly say "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"

Jesus says, " Don’t fear those who kill the body but are not able to kill the soul; rather, fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." 

I heard the whisper of God today in the wars and rumors of wars between America and Syria.  I heard my Lord whisper, I AM.   He IS the great I AM.  I can trust Him.  I heard the whisper of the Lord today, Tell them about Me and My love for them.  Tell them now.  

There is a beginning and an end to all things.  To life.  To stories.  To eternity.  Where will you begin eternity?  With God or separated forever from Him in hell?  You can begin eternity today...right praying, speaking to Jesus and asking Him to save you.  If you need a Bible, let me know. fI will get one for you. If you do not know where to begin, start with the Gospel of John.

 It is important ...the most important decision you will make.  And making no decision...well, that is making a decision.  The decision not to decide is a decision not to follow Jesus.
