The Way Back to Jesus

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

John 14:6 (King James Version)

If Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, many of us have disregarded the Way. 

Many of us have forgotten the true instructions and appeal of Jesus, to follow Him and to worship His Father.

Many of us have become beholden to the world, but not to Jesus.

So, a few days ago, I was "prompted" to write my 2nd non-fiction book on Jesus, among 22 other short fiction books on spiritual warfare, honoring Jesus in our lives.

This new book, "6 Steps to Jesus", was a gathering of six instructions Jesus gave us in His life and ministry, calling us to follow Him.

I could not have gathered all that vital information, had I not been reading the Bible.

I could not have done that, plus write 24 books in a span of  54 days (less than two months), if I had not fully embraced Christ as a born-again Christian.

It was voluntary on my part.

I felt the urgency to do so.

You do that when you really wish to know God in full.

I was a writer and researcher, but God called me to take my work to the next level, to be of service to Him, for I had been volunteering to do so.

I found nothing material or prestige-wise of the world that pleased me, for it was not of Jesus.

The world followed His adversary.

The adversary made sure of that.

If you have been reading the Bible, your heart will be awakened to that truth.

On and on, God's book pointed out the many errors of humans.

We are all fallible; God isn't.

That's why God gave us the 10 Commandments, through Moses.

That's why God gave us His Son, to save us.

But everything gets lost in translation, people have secret agendas, and the words of Christ, His prophecies, have been set aside, for the counterfeit human goals and agendas. 

It was the Bible that really opened my eyes.

What a true awakening for me!

My former religion didn't ask us to read the Bible.

They read it for us.

There was no real invitation to read the Word of God.

Four months ago, I finally read THE book, the only book that mattered in this world, if we are to know the past, the present, and the future.

History books don't matter.

Only the Bible matters.

And through the Bible, I was able to identify six steps back to Christ. 

You will find His requirements for discipleship, that is, if you really want to follow Him.

His instructions are clear.

I merely quoted His six verses in my book, offered my own understanding of it -- totally based on Scripture -- and guided by the Holy Spirit, who is my teacher.

My thoughts have not been my own since I first accepted Christ on 6 September 2019.

In this season of the end times, the way back to Jesus is the ONLY way.

The Most Intriguing Words of Jesus On His Second Coming

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 24:39-42 (King James Version)

As I was studying the Bible, I found the above verse the most intriguing of all of Jesus' words.

Those words really say much, with its significance probably not really sinking in people -- just yet.

Imagine this:

You are cooking food for your family, then all of a sudden, one, or two of you, disappear -- just like that.

Or, you're driving a vehicle, or piloting a plane, and people -- either driver or passenger -- start disappearing.

Or, you're holding your baby, and suddenly, you or your baby disappears.

Can you imagine the scenario in hospitals, or air traffic control towers?

Or even just on the highways.

There have been books and movies made of this scenario.

It is not just a possible scenario.

It is the scenario Jesus said so Himself:

"the one shall be taken, and the other left"

No one knows the hour of His Coming.

No one knows who will be taken, and who will be left.

So, what makes us think that all the wealth we accumulate now would ever matter?

What makes us think that worldly concerns matter at all?

Where we're all going, only God knows.

It is foolish to hoard, or to be selfish.

It is foolish to be angry, or to be vengeful.

It is foolish to have the world at your feet and have everyone adore you.

It is foolish to keep sinning.

At any given moment -- in the blink of God's eye -- each one of us can be gone.

Somehow, I can't even look farther than that moment of Jesus' prophecy.

The fact that one of us would disappear -- at God's choosing -- is truly an eye-opener for me.

Jesus had many warnings of things to come, but many people are asleep, addicted to the many offerings of the world.

We already know who keeps us asleep at the wheel.

We already know who wants us unprepared, for when Christ comes for us.

These dark forces have been mocking Bible prophecy since time immemorial.

People don't light the lamps of their hearts anymore, and are distracted by things of the world.

But, what if, at that exact moment, someone you love or care for, is taken up to Christ?

Surely, you can imagine the chaos, grief, and disaster that would ensue when people are busy at work or at home, and suddenly, God says, "It's time!"

Never be complacent.

Study God's Words.

Let Jesus be your guide.

Focus not on how the world is progressing, for in truth, it is regressing.

Salvation is a personal matter, between you and God alone.

You must care enough about your soul, wanting to be with God for eternity.

If you care about yourself, and grateful for the life and opportunities God gave you, it is automatic, you'd care about others, too.

If you care about others, you'd want them to be with God, too.

I'm learning much, reading the Bible, and really listening to what Jesus is really trying to tell us.

Oftentimes, it's really very simple.

"From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."

Matthew 4:17 (King James Version)

How many really believe they are sinful, and only by the Grace of God, can they be saved?

How many acknowledge their sinfulness, and care to truly repent?

Is this finite life more delightful, than eternal life promised by Christ?

"And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand."

John 10:28( King James Version)

Are you aware that the people you care for could disappear right before your eyes?

Or, perhaps, you could disappear?

Won't you want to think about Jesus' words and share it with your loved ones, making sure you are all ONE in Christ -- embracing Him as true born-again Christians?

Won't you all want to be together in God's Kingdom?

All those who care, please take heed.

And beware of false prophets and antichrists -- there will be many -- and that's when you know the time is at hand.

Remember, we are under God's timetable.

Whatever little, puny power, possessions, or prestige we have, matters not in the Kingdom of God.

All that matters is if we have accepted Christ in our hearts, and acknowledge Him as our One, True Savior.

It also matters that we repent for all the many errors of our heart.

In this season of the end times, stay closest to Jesus.

Commit your life and work to Him.

Nothing matters but Christ now.

On Children, God, and Money

6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

1 Timothy 6:6-12 (King James Version)

My Bible teacher, Joseph, and I were discussing about the simple life, and he shared that particular verse which best describes it through God's Gospel.

And I thought to myself, how children of a very young age have no concept of money.

When they become adults, they learn about it, and somehow everything becomes distorted, corrupted, and adult-erated.

Children only know basic existence -- food, clothing, shelter, parents, siblings, relatives, friends, play, and eventually, school.

They also feel if you love them, or not.

Before the age of five, you would normally not hear children speak of money, unless they are bombarded with shows or cartoons that show such.

Or perhaps, they hear their parents fight about money.

But kids have no concept of money, wealth, power, prestige at such an early age, at least, not yet.

They may fight among themselves at play, from territoriality, like, "This is my toy!" and snatches their toys away from others who want it, too.

And perhaps, that's a sign of the things to come, for God did say our hearts were evil from childhood:

"And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done."

Genesis 8:21( King James Version)

But Christ also said:

"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."

Matthew 19:14 (King James Version)

So, that means if we keep our hearts focused on God, and be like little children, eager to learn, and unafraid to approach God however we are -- in all our ignorance -- we have great potential to learn of His Kingdom.

Little children are brave, if you do not create fear in them.

I'd like to think that having a child-like heart, no matter your age, and aiming to know EVERYTHING about God, would be a good start.

If you don't know Him now, please make an effort to do so.

Approach Christ with a child-like heart, allowing Him to show you the Way back to God.

Only through a humble, or even humbled heart, can we have a chance to know God more.

Where God's Kingdom is, there is only His Glory.

It's a good idea to start thinking and accepting now that whatever little glories we have on earth -- whether we have achieved it, or still want to achieve it -- have no room in God's Kingdom.

In God's Kingdom, there is only GOD.

I think it's pretty easy to tell kids that and they'll understand.

The only question is, do adults understand that?

Have we set aside our little selves for God's Great Self?

Be like a child again, completely trusting of God in your heart.

Allow no one to distort or corrupt God's Truth.

The Bible, the Word of God, is your best reference on earth.

The Holy Spirit will guide you to God's Truth.

It's the only safe haven we have on earth in this season of the end times.

In my heart, only God's Glory matters.

John MacArthur's "Blueprint for Being Born Again"

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

John 3:3-8 (King James Version)

Those are Jesus' very own words about what we need to see the kingdom of God.

Spirit also led me to the wonderful John MacArthur video above, on what it means to be a born again Christian.

Finally, you get to know what it means to be one, how you are transformed from thereon, and the points of focus if you are to really love and worship God.

All of Jesus' ministry has always focused on our loving His Father.

I created this blog purposely to document my own findings and path, and the many treasures I discovered along the way. 

As John MacArthur says:

"Profession, without possession."

Listen to the video as pastor MacArthur explains things in his usual, clear, and unapologetic manner.

When you live by Scripture, you will be happily transformed, sitting at Jesus' feet, listening to Him with all your heart and being, absorbing all of His teachings, and eager to do His Will alone.

No other path can be more beautiful.

I don't know about you but it was my time to become born again on 6 September 2019. All my life had been preparation for that moment.

After which, I ended one blog, and created the one you're reading now.

God also led me to read the Bible -- His Book.

From which, I took down notes, and have many notebooks and index cards of my findings, which eventually led to my writing short fiction books on 24 November 2019.

It became my foundation for my books and all my thoughts and work now.

My 22 books on spiritual warfare -- written in a remarkable, intensive period of 36 days -- can all be now found on Amazon.

I don't know how I did it, I merely did it -- as prompted by the Holy Spirit each day.

That's what being born again did to me. 

If you choose to serve God, He will work with you in a way He had originally designed. 

May you seek God with all your heart, too, and let Him shower you with His Grace.

In this season of the end times, it is time to re-connect with God in a way He had always wanted to.

By ourselves we know nothing.

Only God makes us something.

There is Only One FATHER

8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.
9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Matthew 23:8-12 (King James Version)

Those were JESUS' very own words about how the scribes and Pharisees were such hypocrites, and now, their kind lives on -- forever distorting the TRUTH of God and His beloved SON.

Everything's really so devious, and unless you really study the Bible, and commit it to heart, you lose the essence of it, subject to the distortions of modern-day world.

We call the pope, "Father"; worse yet, we call him "Holy Father", a title only reserved to God, the one, true FATHER.

They also call the pope, "Vicar".

Won't these abominations to God ever stop?

How can priests, supposedly students of theology when they were seminarians, have allowed this untruth to be continuously fed, accepted, and propagated?

How can people even kiss the ring of the pope, when Christ Himself washed his apostles' feet?

How deluded we have been in the Roman Catholic tradition.

How the dark forces have come upon man and distorted his thinking for so long.

It is time God's SCRIPTURE be our ONLY reference for TRUTH.

We have erred so much about Jesus, even as He had clearly instructed us during His brief ministry.

I've purposely written those 22 books on spiritual warfare because people are not aware who is ruler of earth, and of how this fallen angel has corrupted us all.

John MacArthur bravely exposes in the video the wrong doctrine of the Roman Catholic church, and I had been a Catholic once.

I know what he speaks of, for I questioned many things myself.

And now that I've been reading the Bible, and getting to know CHRIST's own Words, I am appalled at the many distortions against His SPIRIT.

It is not surprising, for the world is not of God.

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:"

1 Peter 5:8 (King James Version)

This video may offend many Catholics but it's time you knew the truth.

The Roman Catholic church offers a counterfeit gospel -- in stark contrast to what Christ had taught.

There was nothing pompous about Jesus.

He lived simply, but taught firmly.

And He always asked that we worship His FATHER alone.

That's why Jesus knew that His TRUTH will divide homes and families.

"The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law."

Luke 12:53 (King James Version)

How can over a billion Catholics be asleep?

It's 2020 now.

It's time to wake up, before it's too late.

JESUS said the unpardonable sin is against the Holy SPIRIT -- the teacher of all things.

"Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men."

Matthew 12:31 (King James Version)

It is time to read Scripture and get things right in our heart.

I've been a born-again Christian for nearly four months now, and my life, work, and thinking have completely changed, all because of the Bible -- how beautiful and exact this BOOK of GOD is.

I had searched for this truth all my life, and by the GRACE of GOD, I've finally found it.

It is not by good works we shall be saved.

It is only by grace, through faith, and by GOD alone.

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Ephesians 2:8-9 (King James Version)

How God hates idolatry.

Humans have idolized many gods, humans, and graven images.

It is time we worshipped GOD, the Creator, alone.

2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Exodus 20:2-6 (King James Version)

All who love God, please take heed.

Hope and Peace for All in 2020

An ending is always a beginning.

A previous year done; a new year ahead of us.

Pretty much like what GOD said here:

"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty."

Revelation 1:8 (King James Version)

In truth, all come from Him.

You would agree to that if you are aligned with Him, and if you love Him.

With God, we have everything.

All our hopes and future.

All our dreams and aspirations.

Everything we have in our heart.

If all are sourced from God, following His Will alone, we are truly guided.

When you embrace God as a born-again Christian, you will find yourself automatically surrendering yourself completely to His Will.

And I tell, you, the feeling is incomparable to any known on earth.

When you are guided each day, not doing any thinking for yourself or for others, but merely ALLOWING God to guide you each day -- through the Holy SPIRIT (the teacher of all things) -- you feel truly clear and blessed, even as it is not in the way the world will think you blessed.

Like I had no idea I could write short fiction -- stories about God, and my understanding of Scripture -- and yet one day, I did.

I finished writing 22 books on spiritual  warfare starting 24 November 2019.

I didn't wait for anyone to publish it.

The books came faster than I can wait to broach the idea to publishers -- which would take forever -- so I had no recourse but to publish them myself.

Think in terms of two books forming in my mind each day.

Through Amazon's platform, I was able to publish all 22 books.

And now, you can see them all on my Amazon author's pageAnd I was just a three-month-old baby Christian then.

It's no boast.

I merely listened to the daily "promptings" of Spirit which came any time anyway. 

I've always been an instinctive writer, but I didn't realize I could write 22 books for God in a little over a month, aiming to finish the last one before 2019 ended.

On 30 December, I published the last book, and I rested, preparing other work for 2020.

My productivity comes from God alone.

I listened, obeyed, and everything flowed -- effortlessly. 

By the GRACE of God, I was able to write and publish all those books on Him.

Everything was based on SCRIPTURE.

Can you see what God can do for you and with you?

He will work with what you have.

He created you, after all.

How can He not know what you're here on earth to do?

What I can tell you is this:

Commit yourself to the LORD, and have the faith, strength, and perseverance to follow His Will, according to Scripture.

WORSHIP Him with all your heart, and have nothing to do with the gods of the earth, for God hates idolatry.

Follow not the ways of the world, or be even concerned with their idea of success, for the world is not of God.

The Kingdom of Heaven is not of the earth.

I "found" the Kingdom of Heaven in two particular verses, a fitting ending to the 21st book I wrote.

What a lovely surprise!

But that's what happens when you work with God.

He has many surprises for you along the way.

I look forward to even more Scripture understanding from Him.

That is the desire of my soul.

May the year 2020 bring you ever closer to the SPIRIT of GOD, where your true strength, peace, and hope lie.

Salvation is always a personal matter.

Commit yourself to know God in your heart by reading SCRIPTURE.

The Holy Spirit will lead you to all understanding.

Therein lies your HOPE.
