1 John 2:1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. 7Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. 8Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. 9He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. 10He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. 11But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. 12I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake. 13I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father. 14I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. 15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. 18Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. 20But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 21I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 24Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 25And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. 26These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. 27But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 28And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. 29If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

Do you struggle with sin? In today's passage we read that Peter writes that his purpose for the passage is that we sin not. It is to remind us that Jesus died for our sins, not our sins only for for the sins of man kind for all times. We simply need to accept that payment! If someone pays you a blank check that there is no amount you can not put on the check, the check is not worth anything if you never cash it. Christ ha written a blank check for you all you have to do is repent (turn from your sins) and ask God to forgive you of your sins. That check is like no other check when it comes to God. It covers your sins (the things you have done wrong) along with all that you will do wrong in the future. Our sins are covered by his blood. That blank check is good for all time. Our desires should start to change but when we do fail in staying from our sin the Bible says we have an advocate with the Father (The Lord Jesus Christ) to act as a lawyer in your defense. The destroyer reminds God look he failed again, look she doesn't really love you she keeps on sinning. Jesus reminds God the Father, look this one is covered by my precious blood that I shed for all. Peter hoe on to say that if you are covered by that blood you will keep Christ's commandments (Love God with your whole heart, and love your neon or a yourself). We as Christians need to work hard at living the right life. We need to be realistic about the fact that we are going to fail but that doesn't mean we don't try. When a baby is learning to walk they fall continually. They work hard at getting on their feet and placing that one foot in front of the other. It does not take long till it becomes second nature for them and they are walking with stumbling to much. Our walk with Christ is much the same we will stumble and fall when we are starting down this path, but soon enough we will be walking without stumbling hardly at all. You know walking paths can sometimes be tricky. We may find some rough spots along the way that makes the path hard to travel. Difficult to traverse. We may even have been walking for years then get to these rough patches of trail only to find that blank check is still good. Doesn't mean we have an open invitation to sin when ever and how ever you would like means you are covered when ever you fail.

2 Peter 3:1This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: 3Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 8But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 15And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. 18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Will The Lord come again? In today's passage we read about one of the glorious truths about The Lord Jesus Christ! We read that he will one day come back to this ol' earth once again. It is not unheard of that people today don't believe in God. One thing you may hear in witnessing to folks is that "if God is real why is he not coming back yet? God tells us in his Word that he will come back to meet his saints in the air and then when he comes back again to this earth that the end of times will be coming soon! Why so long before he comes? Peter tells us that it is to allow as many to be saved as possible before God decides that's it! It is time! When that day comes there will be a great time of sorrow for those who have not chosen The Lord Jesus as their personal savior! If you have been putting it off till now, make today your day of salvation. Private message us if you need help with this decision!

2 Peter 1:1Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ: 2Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 12Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. 13Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; 14Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. 15Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance. 16For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 18And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. 19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Do you believe this book is the truth? In today's passage Peter is writing to give you a good foundation he says very specifically this not a book of fables but this book is written by men of God by the direct inspiration of God. This book is to be used as a school teach in order to show us the way we should go. I often time while witnessing have heard folks just can't believe the whole Bible is true and written through the Holy Spirit. Often these same people claim to be saved. I would be very cautious about saying the book you trust in for salvation is the same book you trust in for salvation. If you start taking portions of the book out they may just take out the portion that saved your soul! You can take out the portions that just don't fit your life style. Many homosexuals would like to believe the Bible is for them but to do so you have to ignore portions of scripture such as Romans and also Genesis. Those are pretty major portions of scripture to ignore, oh and one of them is where we get the Romans Road that will help them find their salvation. Remember it's not a book we pick and choose from as to what we like. It's not like a buffet that says I will take a little of this and a little of that but don't give me that stuff never would eat it. In comparison it would sound like this give me feel good messages, show me the Bible will make me rich bit don't give me sin and repentance don't give me the blood or Sodom and Gomorrah. We can't pick and choose believe it or don't believe it. Same goes for versions. Stick to the Bible I believe is for the English speaking; the King James! Believe what it says so that you might have eternal life!

1 Peter 4:1Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; 2That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. 3For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: 4Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: 5Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead. 6For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. 7But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. 8And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. 9Use hospitality one to another without grudging. 10As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 14If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. 15But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters. 16Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

Are you listening for the applause of man? In today's passage I am reminded that my flesh is weak. Today's passage reminds me of the issue I have in allowing my soul to submit to the authority of Christ while serving him. When I started this blog I did it for all the right reasons. I started it on my personal site and decided that it would be better to break it out on its own. Many people would tell me I read you devotion and would often comment on it. I thought many others might be able to do so if I create one. It was true it worked. I started receiving friend requests from all over this country. Then I started seeing likes from around the world. I started getting more excited about the numbers and countries more than the reason I started doing the blog. You see I started doing the blog to be able to uplift Christ and him crucified. Along the way I started to serve me and building those numbers more than serving the one who created those numbers. I submit to you this is one of the hardest things to deal with in our lives the constant desire to challenge who will sit upon the throne of our hearts. Though my spirit wants Christ there often times my flesh will want my self there. I don't always choose the right thing when it comes to this issue in my life. I have since repented and only look at the numbers from time to time. I have concluded as this chapter (vs 11) if any man minister let him do so in the strength that God gives and let Christ be magnified. John said it this way " I must decrease so that God may increase". We all struggle with this in our lives to allow the one who created us and saved us to rule us. It's this old flesh and as long as I live in it I will always struggle with it. If you are struggling today with your flesh know your not alone and keep on fighting the good fight. In the end we are more than conquers through Jesus Christ our Lord!

1 Peter 2:1Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, 2As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 3If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. 4To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, 5Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 6Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. 7Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, 8And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. 9But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 11Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; 12Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. 13Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; 14Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. 15For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. 17Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king. 18Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. 19For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. 20For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. 21For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: 24Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 25For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

Are you trying to live right? Today's passage teaches us that we should live right from the opening to the ending of the chapter you read of different actions we should be taking and very specific actions we should abstain from. When we become children of God because we accept Jesus Christ as our savior we then become Gods child. When we do that Christ tells us we should Repent of our sins then ask God to save us from our sins. Repent simply means turn from them. If you are doing sin we should be trying to stop doing them! This chapter is for the believer and is teaching that after you have been saved you should act in a way that is pleasing to God! We will gain power over our sin by two things reading Gods Word (the Bible) and by praying to God. Join me today to try a little harder to do what is right and put those things down that we Kanarese are not right in our lives. It may be a small triumph (like saying a kind word to someone who does not deserve it) or a large triumph (like putting down a sin in your life you have been covering up for years). We should systematically be trying to put down the sin that so easily beseeches us in this life and trying to become more like Christ daily!

James 5:1Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 3Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. 7Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. 8Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. 9Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door. 10Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. 11Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy. 12But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. 13Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. 14Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. 18And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. 19Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

Does your prayers matter? Your prayers do matter in fact even the ones that seem to go unanswered will eventually be answered. It may not be answered in the way that you expect but God has hear the prayers of those that are saved. Interesting point just for fun the book of Revelation 8 tells us what will happen to our prayers. Let's focus on this chapter though for a moment and I would like to specifically focus on verses 13 to 18. Here we see that if there are sick among you that let call on the elders (or the leaders) of the church to pray for them. They should anoint him with oil. I think this is a good time to mention the healing power is not in the oil it's in God almighty. The oil is simply a representation of God the Holy Spirit. The book goes on to say if we have sinned we would be forgiven them. The passage goes on to say we should confess our sins to one another and pray for each other. A true Christian brother or sister when a friend comes to you for help we need to remember that they do so because the trust you. They don't want their dirty laundry spread all over town they want you to pray for them to help them gain strength. They want to you to pray for them that they might be healed. And this is why in verse 16 the fervent (urgent) prayer of a righteous (being right with God by being right this means someone who is saved) man availeth much (has great results! When we pray Go listens. Out prayer is a direct line into God. He is God and has created all that you see. He hung the mom and the starts but he also cares about me! Pray brother and sisters a saint of God is able to hear from God because of his prayers; verses 17 and 18 are examples of this. If Ellias is able to pray an have the very waters of heavens would be turned off, what is possible from your prayers? Healing our God is the great physician, financial help; he owns the cattle on the thousandth hill and he even owns the hill. Strength? He is the one who gave you life and sustains it! You see there is nothing you can not bring before God that he is unable to take care of! Trust in God, pray often! Pray for one another.

1 John 1:1That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 5This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Have you had a change in your life since you came to know Jesus? In today's passage we read about John teaching that we should have a change in our lives. After we are saved we should loose our desire to sin. That does not mean you will never sin again but there should be something inside of you that tells you your doing wrong and you should desire to stop doing those things that you know are wrong. Often times though what you see is the one who says he is a Christian and does not have any desire to stay away from sin. If you say you are a Christian this should not be the case. That is not saying you won't struggle with sin. That is saying you should not be ok with living in sin! If you walk in the darkness (sin) yet say you are in the light (saved) then this passage says you are a lier! But there is more if you say you have NO sin, we all know those people who say "they do no wrong" this passage says the truth is not in us! In other words he once again says "you are a lier"! I can't stress this enough; if you are a Christian but then live like the devil you need to re-evaluate if you ever were saved. We are saved according to Jesus when we repent and turn to God for salvation. If we never do that first step (recognize our sin and turn from it) do we ever truly get saved? We need to work out our salvation with fear and trembling not just have an emotional experience and day "yup I am going to heaven"! We are saved through what God does not from me shedding tears or having an emotional moment at an alter. There should be fruit if there is salvation. Our wants should change, our desires should change, our lives should change. Make the change today if you have not already done so!

2 Peter 2:1But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. 4For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 7And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 9The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 10But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. 11Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. 12But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; 13And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; 14Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: 15Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet. 17These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. 18For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 19While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 20For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

Do you know the Bible yourself, or do you know someone who does? In today's message we read about many trust he's but I would like to focus in on the first few verses. I want to ask you do you know the Bible? Do you read it? Do you take time to understand what God is trying to teach you in it? When we read about false prophets and teachers teaching things that can turn your soul loose in hell do you know the difference from those that can set your soul free for eternity? You see it takes a repentant heart to come to God and ask forgiveness. When you turn on these tv evangelist that so many give ear to or their money to they promise great healing or massive wealth if only you plant a seed. Let's face it the only healing they are truly showing is the healing of their budget and great wealth is the wealth of themselves! The Bible is clear to avoid people like this yet many good hearted Christians turn to them often. I once read that one of them don't teach on sin! They did this because it was so negative. How can you have repentance without the knowledge of sin? Christian put away those things in your life that will keep you from Christ! Pick up your ol' King James Bible and read it! Learn it! The end of this chapter says that like a dog returning to his vomit if you are a Christian that has put sin behind you don't return to it. Avoid it. The God of your salvation can keep you from it. Let's trust in God for you strength and do so from your daily renewing of your mind, by reading his Word!

1 Peter 5:1The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: 2Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 3Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. 4And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away. 5Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. 6Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 12By Silvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, I have written briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God wherein ye stand. 13The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son. 14Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

Will you be rewarded? In today's passage we read that we are to be examples as a Christian so that other Christians shall have an example to which to follow. When Christ returns when he finds his people living in such a way he will reward us with a crown. We should resist sin in our lives and look to cast our cares (our worries and problems) upon God. He says in multiple places to cast them upon him because he will take those cares or burdens and take them away. He says to take his plow and get to work in his field. When we focus more on spiritual things and quit focusing on the things of this world; God will take those burdens. We have to set them down and learn to leave them sat down! One last point here. Your adversary is listed here as a roaring lion looking to whom he can destroy. Think about this for a moment what do we know about lions? We know they don't hunt alone. They hunt in prides. They hunt the weak and feeble. They devour those that are not strong. Satan is the lion in this example, he prays on the weak spiritually, he works with 1/3 of all the angles of heaven that decided as he did that they wanted no part of Gods plan. The term was 1/3 of an innumerable number. They don't have a number for how many of them there were. They are the ones hunting with Satan. They are looking to devour the weak among the Christians. Those who never seem to grow. Those than never seem to work for God. Because he knows that will get to the others. He knows it will be something that will prevent others from coming to Christ when they can point to another Christian falling from Gods work. He does not target the ones that are not working at all or the ones that are thinking maybe I should get active. He simply needs to remind them to ignore those desires he wants the ones that are active but have a wandering eye. Those who have a work but always wants something more in life. A lion pride don't go after those who are strong but if enough of them can get the strong one they will do so they will take a big man down. Be sober be vigilant we have a job to do we need to do it with a ready heart and blinders on to this world. Keep your eyes on the field and your heart fixed on Christ!

Be all you can be!!! In today's passage we read what we should be. We should be all that we can be. Peter starts out concentrating on the wives of the readers reminding them to be the best wives they can be. We as husbands need to be all that we can be too, loving our wives as Christ love his bride. Brothers Christ died on the cross for his bride but if ours looks cross-eyed at us we want to know how much a device will cost us! We need to love our wives as Christ loved his bride (the church) and be willing to give all we have for her! Even to the extent of laying down our lives to protect her. In today's world where the women say I am woman hear me roar, we as men need to remember that she is our weaker vessel and we need to protect her. That is our job. Sometimes we need to remover to protect her from us, because it is us that is her worse critic, her worse cheerleader, her worse inspector, and her worse lifter upper! Look how many of you want a wife to be all that is mentioned in this chapter? That is exactly what I want of my wife; we as husbands need to give them a reason to be that way! If you want the best of your wife give her your best, when it feels good give her your best, when it is convenient give her your best. Here is the hard part when it's not easy give her your best, when you don't want to give her your best and when it's NOT convenient give her your best. Be a man that is worthy of her best!

1Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; 2While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. 3Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; 4But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 5For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: 6Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. 7Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. 8Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: 9Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. 10For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 11Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 12For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. 13And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? 14But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; 15But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 16Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. 17For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. 18For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 19By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; 20Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 21The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: 22Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

1 Peter:1:1Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, 2Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. 3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 5Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 8Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: 9Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. 10Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 11Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 12Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into. 13Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 17And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: 18Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 21Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. 22Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 24For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

Is salvation to you more precious than gold? In today's message I would like to look at how important salvation is. First of all let's look at what salvation is. Salvation is the gift of God where we are able to have triumph over our sin simply by believing that God is who he says he is in this book, believe that Christ died on the ol' rugged cross for your sins and three days later he arose from the grave. This plan was put in place according to the scripture before the foundations of the earth. You might ask where is Christ now? That is an easy one he is at the right hand of the father making intercession for you and I; if we are the children of God (by being a child of God I am not saying you go to church your momma went to church, your daddy went to church, you believe that there is a god, not that there are many patches, but that Christ died for you and that there is only one way to God the father; through God the father, you believe this, you repented of your sins and have received Christ as your personal savior)! Salvation is important, salvation is the ONLY way to heaven! It is the ONLY thing that will keep your soul from an eternal hell and torment. Christ died on the cross for you and for me. If you believe this share it with your friends. If you are not able to then share this status that they may see Christ through you! If you are reading this and still have not come to a saving knowledge of Christ as your savior make that decision today!

Wow, was I surprised. We did a last minute travel to South Point. We were a little leery but pleasantly surprised by the hotel. First of all the young man that was working night shift when we finally made it to the hotel was very courteous and pleasant. We got two rooms for our family and found them very nice for the price. One was a queen suite and one was a king suite. Both were furnished well and very clean. The hotel overall was very nice in appearance and for someone who travels often I was extremely pleased with the breakfast that they served. A real country breakfast in a very nice hotel. Defiantly would recommend it to any!

Many family members buried at this cemetery. The area is kept nicely and love to visit the stones to remind me which way I should go. Be careful however there are poisonous snakes in the area and those rocks on colder days are where they like to sun.

Have purchased several cars from this facility. Heather Williams has helped me out several times. Her service is above reproach. I have had service done to my truck there. The service before and after was ok at best. If you are looking to buy a car defiantly worth a stop to see Heather. Not sure about the rest.
