Where Would Your Soul Be If the U.S. Was Obliterated By a Nuclear Attack?

I know, it’s not a very cheery topic.  Most of us think about this, but we quickly force our minds to think on other things.  Even the Word of God says this:

 “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.  When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory” (Colossians 3:2-4).

The Lost

But how about the people who have rejected Christ and His free gift of Salvation?  When they think about a nuclear blast decimating the U.S., do they even think about eternity and where their soul will wind up?  Unfortunately, I believe many of these people think that this life is all there is. And that is exactly what Satan wants them to believe.

My Secular Jewish mother

My mom died in 1999.  She used to laugh at me believing in Satan.  She would say that he was a cartoon character. No matter what I said to mom, she would laugh out loud.  She was brought up in a secular home. I believe that the only time she entered a synagogue was when she married my dad, who was brought up orthodox.

Isn’t it interesting that my dad was the one who began to search for Yeshua after I was saved; and that God allowed me the privilege of leading him to Yeshua on the very night of his death?  I look forward to seeing him in heaven.

The Condition of the World and the U.S.

I remember the many years then America was never challenged as the most powerful nation on earth.  Even Russia knew that it was not in their best interest to threaten the U.S.  During the cold war years, the rhetoric that came out of the Kremlin was just propaganda like everything else.  But in their heart of hearts they knew that America was THE Super power.

Not so anymore.  Obama deliberately decimated our military in the 8 years he reigned over our country.  His mission was to weaken and destabilize the U.S.  He was successful, and if not for our God keeping Clinton out of the People’s House, God only knows if there would be a Russian flag blowing in the wind on our government buildings.  Perish that thought…….

Back to YOUR Soul

The chances of an unsaved person reading articles from my blog site is not great.  But I do know that there are many people who do read my pieces who have lost members of their family and lost friends.  The prayer of my heart is that the readers will be able to send this article to their lost loved ones.

Here is the Gospel of Jesus Christ:

The Simple Plan of Salvation

I am asking you the most important question of life. Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity depends upon your answer. The question is: Are you saved? It is not a question of how good you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die?

God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:7, Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be born again.”

Born again

In the Bible God gives us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple! You can be saved today. How?

First, my friend, you must realize you are a sinner. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

For all have sinned

Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to death. “For the wages [payment] of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell.

“ . . . it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).

Judgment

But God loved you so much He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place. “ . . . He hath made Him [Jesus, Who knew no sin to be sin for us . . . that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

He who had no sin

Jesus had to shed His blood and die. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood” (Lev. 17:11). “ . . . without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]” (Hebrews 9:22).

Lamb

“ . . . God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

Christ died for us

Although we cannot understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and He died in our place. He became our substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.

My friend, “God commandeth all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30). This repentance is a change of mind that agrees with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the Cross.

In Acts 16:30-31, the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas: “ . . . ‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ And they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved ’ ”

Believe on the Lord

Simply believe on Him as the one who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected. His resurrection powerfully assures that the believer can claim everlasting life when Jesus is received as Savior.

“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name” (John 1:12).

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

Whosoever

Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved.

Surely, you realize you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer.

In Luke 18:13, the sinner prayed:
“God be merciful to me a sinner.” Just pray: “Oh God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when He died on the Cross. I believe His shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive Him as my Savior. I thank You for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and everlasting life, because of Your merciful grace. Amen.”

Just take God at His word and claim His salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. No church, no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember, God does the saving. All of it!

God’s simple plan of salvation is: You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus Who died in your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you believe on Him as your crucified, buried, and risen Savior, you receive forgiveness for all of your sins and His gift of eternal salvation by faith.

You say, “Surely, it cannot be that simple.” Yes, that simple! It is scriptural. It is God’s plan. My friend, believe on Jesus and receive Him as Savior today.

If His plan is not perfectly clear, read this tract over and over, without laying it down, until you understand it. Your soul is worth more than all the world.

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36).

Be sure you are saved. If you lose your soul, you miss Heaven and lose all. Please! Let God save you this very moment.

God’s power will save you, keep you saved, and enable you to live a victorious Christian life. “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, Who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Do not trust your feelings. They change. Stand on God’s promises. They never change. After you are saved, there are four things to practice daily for spiritual growth:

Pray — you talk to God.
Read your Bible — God talks to you.
Witness — you talk for God.
Join a Bible Study — You will grow in your faith.
Develop relationships with other believers – Fellowship is so important!! – source

Did God Get Your Attention?

Did you feel a heaviness on you, realizing that you are a sinner (like the rest of us) and that you have never agreed with the Lord that you are lost in your sins and in desperate need of a Savior (Jesus Christ)?
 He is Waiting Because Today is the Day of Salvation! 
 No one is guaranteed another minute of life. A heart attack happens quickly. Car accidents happen quickly.  Nuclear weapons happen quickly.  Are you really going to take the chance that you will die without Christ?
Once you are dead, there is not a second chance.
 I plead with you this day to repent and trust the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins and you will be saved (born again).
 ‘For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved:  (Romans 10:13).
 
MARANATHA!

 

 

Still Using Snopes To Fact Check? PLEASE Just Say Nope to Snopes!

****This is a reprint of an article I wrote over a year ago.  I will probably be put in FB jail again – the first time I shared this I was in jail after just 3 shares!  

It horrifies me when Conservative Christians come to me and say “I fact checked this on Snopes and they said it’s not true.”

Just say NOPE to SNOPES!  

This left leaning outfit, run by an ultra liberal couple is definitely not the place for Conservatives to go for verification of facts. May I just say that if you want to be lied to, then Snopes is for you!  Talk about Fake News – Snopes is the place where left wing fake news is verified and news stories from Conservative sites are vilified.

Where is the discernment?

Actually, it is just as shocking to me when Conservatives are duped by rag websites like Snopes.  Many years ago, before I knew what this outfit was about, it only took me a few times before it was clear to me that I was dealing with lefties.  At that point I began to research Snopes. My suspicions were confirmed when I read that the couple who ran this cesspool of misinformation were died in the wool Liberal Democrats.

Fact-Checking Snopes: Website’s Political ‘Fact-Checker’ Is Just A Failed Liberal Blogger

Popular myth-busting website Snopes originally gained recognition for being the go-to site for disproving outlandish urban legends -such as the presence of UFOs in Haiti or the existence of human-animal hybrids in the Amazon jungle.

Recently, however, the site has tried to pose as a political fact-checker. But Snopes’ “fact-checking” looks more like playing defense for prominent Democrats like Hillary Clinton and it’s political “fact-checker” describes herself as a liberal and has called Republicans “regressive” and afraid of “female agency.”

Snopes’ main political fact-checker is a writer named Kim Lacapria. Before writing for Snopes, Lacapria wrote for Inquisitr, a blog that — oddly enough — is known for publishing fake quotes and even downright hoaxesas much as anything else.

While at Inquisitr, the future “fact-checker” consistently displayed clear partisanship (RELATED: Snopes Caught Lying About Lack Of American Flags At Democratic Convention)

She described herself as “openly left-leaning” and a liberal. She trashed the Tea Party as “teahadists.” She called Bill Clinton “one of our greatest” presidents. She claimed that conservatives only criticized Lena Dunham’s comparison of voting to sex because they “fear female agency.”

She once wrote: “Like many GOP ideas about the poor, the panic about using food stamps for alcohol, pornography or guns seems to have been cut from whole cloth–or more likely, the ideas many have about the fantasy of poverty.” (A simple fact-check would show that food stamp fraud does occur and costs taxpayers tens of millions.)

Lacapria even accused the Bush administration of being “at least guilty of criminal negligience” in the September 11 attacks. (The future “fact-checker” offered no evidence to support her accusation.)

Her columns apparently failed to impress her readership, oftentimes failing to get more than 10-20 shares.

After blogging the Inquisitr, Lacapria joined Snopes, where she regularly plays defense for her fellow liberals.

She wrote a “fact check” article about Jimmy Carter’s unilateral ban of Iranian nationals from entering the country that looks more like an opinion column arguing against Donald Trump’s proposed Muslim ban.

Similarly, Lacapria — in another “fact check” article — argued Hillary Clinton hadn’t included Benghazi at all in her infamous “we didn’t lose a single person in Libya” gaffe. Lacapria claimed Clinton only meant to refer to the 2011 invasion of Libya (but not the 2012 Benghazi attack) but offered little fact-based evidence to support her claim.

After the Orlando terror attack, Lacapria claimed that just because Omar Mateen was a registered Democrat with an active voter registration status didn’t mean he was actually a Democrat. Her “fact check” argued that he might “have chosen a random political affiliation when he initially registered.”

Lacapria even tried to contradict the former Facebook workers who admitted that Facebook regularly censors conservative news, dismissing the news as “rumors.”

In that “fact check” article, Lacapria argued that “Facebook Trending’s blacklisting of ‘junk topics’ was not only not a scandalous development, but to be expected following the social network’s crackdown on fake news sites.” The opinion-heavy article was mockingly titled: The Algorithm Is Gonna Get You.

Lacapria again played defense for Clinton in a fact check article when she claimed: “Outrage over an expensive Armani jacket worn by Hillary Clinton was peppered with inaccurate details.”

One of the “inaccurate details” cited by Lacapria was that, “The cost of men’s suits worn by fellow politicians didn’t appear in the article for contrast.” She also argued the speech Clinton gave while wearing the $12,495 jacket, which discussed “raising wages and reducing inequality,” wasn’t actually about income inequality. source

Research to Vet Stories

As a writer, I must vet any major story before I publish it on my Word Press.  It’s not that difficult. You find credible Conservative websites and do a word search using your search engine on the topic of which you are researching. After your word search, place a coma and then type in one of your trustworthy Conservative sites.

Go to 4conservative.com    <(click here for the best Conservative site online!  The have ALL of the Conservative websites listed for you!  Search for TRUTH there!

Fake news is everywhere. There are even websites which are known to be satirical. I can’t tell how many times I see people posting articles from “The Onion” and I have to tell them that it’s political satire.  At least these websites are up front about their tongue in cheek phony articles!

Brethren, we are not battling flesh and blood.  The left wing liberals are serving their master, Satan.  We must be as wise as serpents, yet as harmless as doves. Learn the devil’s traps and snares and more importantly, learn how to avoid them!

Share the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  That is why we are still here!

How Can I Be Saved?
