Spiritual gift tests, the observations of others, and personal experience has revealed that I have the spiritual gift of prophecy. Don’t misunderstand, I am not a foreteller, but a forth teller. I don’t have any new revelation from God. The only revelation I have is the same one you have—His Word, the Bible. God has simply called me to preach His Word.
A prophet’s basic motivational drive is to apply the Word of God to a situation so that sin is exposed and a saving relationship between Christ and the sinner is established.
One who has the gift of prophecy calls attention to sin and wrong attitudes.
For the prophet, to observe or discern sin and say nothing about it is, of itself, sin.
Sometimes, as in my case, a prophet’s need to be “painfully truthful” may result in insensitivity or harshness. I apologize to anyone and everyone I have treated harshly in the past. It’s just that I HATE sin, I do not like seeing anyone wallow in sin, and I want everyone to enter into a saving relationship with Jesus.
Do I sin? Absolutely! And, I HATE it when I do, because I know that is not God’s will for my life. There is a better way—God’s way!
Do I hate any sinner? Absolutely not! That is why I preach Jesus and present His Good News—that He saves from sin.
I hope that everyone reading this realizes that I would give everything I own to keep my loved ones from going to Hell. I would even lay down my life if I knew it would keep someone from spending eternity in that awful place. But the truth is it wouldn’t, because I’m not perfect.
However, the perfect One—Jesus Christ—came over 2,000 years ago into this world and laid down His perfect life for all who will place their faith in Him and receive God’s free gift of eternal life.
If you haven’t done that, why not do that today? How do you do that?
A - Admit
Admit that you have sinned and fallen short of God’s standard of perfection.
Romans 3:23 All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
B - Believe
Believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose again as a payment for your sins and to provide you with eternal life.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.
Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
C - CONFESS AND COMMIT
Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and commit your life to Him. Put God in charge of your life.
Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 10:13 Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
If you would like to know more about how to enter into a saving relationship with Jesus, private message me. God wants what is best for you and so do I.
