Freedom in Christ!

Some people don't believe in God because they assume that it's bondage to not have the ability to think for yourself and do what you want. In reality, it's just the opposite! Those that are in Christ are actually alive in Christ, no religious bondage just freedom! We're forgiven and are free from bondage because the old is gone and the new has come! On the other hand, unbelievers are actually slaves to sin and are in bondage. To not believe that there's a God is foolishness. There's a complete difference in our thinking once we get 'Saved'. To reject the Gospel means that you rather be a slave to sin... Being a slave to sin means that you willingly give yourself up to the devil and allow him to wreck havoc on your life and cause you to live without fullness of life. Jesus came to give life abundantly and the devil came to completely destroy it. This is the difference from being in Christ and being in the world. God is SO VERY REAL and so, is the devil. We can only pick one to choose. Christians have a choice, nothing is forced upon us like religions are. The choice to serve God is up to you. The God that I serve responds in faith and He gives me the choice to either yield to Him or to my own understanding. The choice to serve the devil is already made when you reject Jesus Christ. Repent, be baptized and born again! God loves you regardless and waiting for you to get your blessings as a heir to His kingdom! Jesus loves you and died for you because He doesn't want you to be a slave to darkness. Hell is real. You can experience heaven the very moment that you accept Jesus Christ into your heart! Your personal beliefs and way of thinking will eventually fail you. This world way of thinking will eventually fail too! Don't get entangled with the lies. The truth is found in God alone! Every Word of God is proven true! You were created for a purpose. God knew you and loved you before you were even born. He has precious thoughts of you that far outnumber the strands of hair on your head! He put himself in a human form just so that He can show you how much He loves you. His spirit can live in you so that you can be just like Him but you must believe. Faith is all that it takes to be a Christian. No bondage. Just transformed thoughts that will cause you to live better and a new heart to love others... That's the difference of being a Christian and an unbeliever.  We become like God. There's complete freedom and POWER in Christ. 

Will you make the decision to get saved today? All you have to do is open up your mouth and say, "Lord I want to get to know You. I believe that your Son Jesus died for my sins and is alive today. I want You to come into my heart and live in me. Forgive me of my sins and baptize me with your Holy Spirit!" And BAM! You're Saved! That's literally all it takes! No religious rules and practices. Just love and grace...

You're now forgiven from your past, present and future sins! You are going to heaven and there's absolutely nothing that you can do that will cause you to not be unforgiven or to go to Hell! The old is past and the NEW is come! You're going to heaven now and there's nothing you can do about that! :) God bless you! Read your bible daily, pray always and go to a bible based church! Jesus loves you! 

““For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 NLT 

“If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Romans 10:9 NLT

“Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
Acts of the Apostles 2:38 NLT

My Vision in a Dream: Repent or Perish

I've only shared this with a couple of people but I've been inspired to share this with you all. I've witnessed God show me visions in dreams a number of times. And not until recently have I realized that those dreams were actually visions *out of body experiences*. Now I ask God to reveal them to me before I forget about the dream. A few days ago, after I was eating lunch I felt the urge to go and pray. I was going to just sit and pray but I ended up falling to my knees. I still didn't feel right so I fell on my face. I prayed my heart out and then a heavy tiredness came over me. I was feeling well rested beforehand... I fell asleep for 3 hours and my kids were asleep the entire time (this never happens!) The dream started off really sweet. I was in a really cute ice cream shop watching the people eat, talk and laugh. Then, an evil man came into this ice cream shop with a heavy machine gun and killed around 10+ people. He was was checking to see if everyone was dead, if not he would shoot them again. He found one guy still breathing so he shot him repeatedly. Then, he stood over me looking angry and seen that I was alive but he couldn't shoot me. The other guy came back to life and he shot the guy again! The guy came back to life in a demon form and then, dragged the evil guy under the ground. And then I woke up trembling! I was asleep for hours and it was evening. Once I calmed down, God revealed my dream without me having to ask this time... 

The ice cream shop representing "sugar coated, watered down preaching." You know, when we talk about God's love but not His judgment... It's danger in preaching the half-gospel. God doesn't like lukewarm Christians. He wants to comfort us and also confront us! He wants us to love Him but also repent. He doesn't want us to only attend church on Sunday's but live like hell during the week. Jesus sacrificed His life so we must crucify our flesh, die and rise with Him in a new life. (Galatians 2:20, 2 Corinthians 5:17)

The guy with the gun couldn't touch me because God's hedge of protection covered me because I was a born again believer in Christ. This comforted me because I've been struggling bad with fear of Christian persecution (1 Timothy-2 Timothy). God is trying to strengthen my confidence so that I can be used by Him to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I've prayed to be used by Him and He's answered my prayers. I got what I asked for and I must obey or people will continue to suffer from lack of knowledge. (Hosea 4:6)

The guy that came back to life represented Repentance. God's patience with us is slow in our eyes. Evil is only being tolerated for a little while longer because God's greatest desire is that we all repent as long as their breath in our bodies. The time is coming when it will be too late to rant to get right with God. Repent or perish. (Luke 13:3)

"For God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only begotten son, so that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

This means that we should repent and believe. They both are one in the same. We must do both. Not just confess. We must confess Jesus as Lord, ask for forgiveness & be changed. ❤️
