<!--EZCODE CENTER START--><div style="text-align:center">Are you seeking to know who GOD is? Are you really serious about it? <br>
Do you want to know why we are here..or rather why YOU are here? <br>
Here are some Words from GOD'S Holy Book, The Bible, to help you.<br>
<br>
A Successful Seeker... <br>
"Without faith it is impossible to please GOD: for he that comes to GOD must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6)<br>
<br>
The corrupted state of mankind...<br>
"The LORD looked down from Heaven upon the children of men, <br>
to see if there were any that did understand, and seek GOD.<br>
(and GOD said) 'they are all gone aside (rebelled against Me),<br>
they are all together become filthy:<br>
there is none that does good,<br>
no, not one' ".<br>
..(Psalm 14:2-3).<br>
<br>
Actions which Offend GOD... <br>
"Now the works of the flesh are manifest(obvious), which are these; <br>
ADULTERY(sex with another person's wife or husband), <br>
FORNICATION(sex outside marriage,prostitution, sodomy,and incest), UNCLEANNESS(lewd or demonic thoughts or actions), <br>
LASCIVIOUSNESS(intense craving for sex or self-indulgence, pornography), IDOLATRY(worshipping any false-god rather than Christ), <br>
WITCHCRAFT(devil-worship, astrology, also narcotics use), <br>
HATRED(hostility), VARIANCE(contention, strife), <br>
EMULATIONS(envy or malice),WRATH (fierceness), <br>
STRIFE(provocing others to anger), <br>
SEDITIONS(insurrections,terrorism,treason), <br>
HERESIES(deliberate false teachings or deviation from God's truth), <br>
ENVYINGS(jealousy), <br>
MURDERS,(killing, abortion, hatred)<br>
DRUNKENNESS, (abuse of drugs or alcohol)<br>
REVELLINGS(noisy drunken orgies or drug parties), <br>
and such like: <br>
of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, <br>
that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."<br>
(Galatians 5:19-21)<br>
<br>
"The wages of sin is death, but the gift of GOD is eternal life <br>
through JESUS CHRIST , OUR LORD". <br>
(Romans 6:23)<br>
<br>
Turn away from your past life. <br>
"These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, <br>
the beginning of the creation of God;<br>
I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: <br>
I would you were cold or hot. <br>
So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, <br>
I will spue you out of my mouth. <br>
Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, <br>
and have need of nothing; <br>
and do not know that you art wretched, and miserable, <br>
and poor, and blind, and naked: <br>
I counsel you to buy from Me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; <br>
and white garments, that you may be clothed, <br>
and that the shame of your nakedness does not appear; <br>
and anoint your eyes with eyesalve, that you may see. <br>
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: <br>
be zealous therefore, and repent".<br>
(Revelation 3:14-19)<br>
<br>
Salvation from a Loving GOD...<br>
"For when we were yet without strength,<br>
in due time Christ died for the ungodly. <br>
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die:<br>
yet perhaps for a good man some would even dare to die.<br>
But God exhibits his love toward us, <br>
in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us". <br>
(Romans 5:6-8)<br>
<br>
The Loving God...<br>
"God loved the world so much that He sacrificed His only begotten SON,<br>
(Jesus Christ), <br>
that whoever puts their faith in Him should not perish <br>
but have eternal life."<br>
(John 3:16)<br>
<br>
The Waiting Savior...<br>
Jesus says,<br>
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: <br>
be zealous therefore, and repent. <br>
{20} Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: <br>
if any man hear my voice, and open the door, <br>
I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.<br>
Rev 3:19-20 (KJV) <br>
<br>
The Seeker's Response... <br>
"See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil; <br>
In that I command you this day to love the LORD your God, <br>
to walk in HIS ways, and to keep HIS commandments <br>
and HIS statutes and HIS judgments, <br>
that thou may live and multiply: <br>
and the LORD your GOD shall bless you<br>
in the land into which you go to possess it".<br>
(Deuteronomy 30:15-16)<br>
<br>
<br>
IF YOU WANT TO GIVE YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST<br>
PRAY THIS PRAYER TO GOD, AND MEAN IT<br>
Dear Jesus, have mercy on me, I am a sinner. <br>
I have failed you and myself throughout my whole life. <br>
and I know that there is nothing I can do to undo the things I did wrong, <br>
or make my life right now either.<br>
I ask you to forgive my sinfulness, and my sins, <br>
and give me a new heart on the inside. <br>
take away all the filth and failure of my old life, <br>
and let me start over with your Holy Spirit in my life.<br>
I know that you died on the cross to save me, <br>
and then rose from the dead so that I could one day be with you in heaven, <br>
and so that you could always live inside me. <br>
please come into my heart and let me know that you are there. <br>
I want to give you the rest of my life, <br>
so that you can do with it what You want to do.<br>
<br>
I thank you that you have heard me, <br>
and I thank you that you have come into my heart, and will never leave me..<br>
I promise that I will read and study the Bible,<br>
so that I can renew my mind with your thoughts and attitudes. <br>
I am also willing to tell others about you, and what you have done for me <br>
with my friends and family, <br>
and all who will listen... <br>
<br>
Lord, I know that you created everything that there is, <br>
and that you are high and lifted up, <br>
and that you are the Lord of the universe. <br>
I praise you for hearing me and answering my prayer...<br>
I know that I am on my way to Heaven when I die....<br>
Thank you Lord Jesus.....<br>
I am praying in your name and for you sake....<br>
Amen.<br>
<br>
If you pray this prayer and really mean it, each part, <br>
Jesus Christ will come into your heart and make you a new person.<br>
You will belong to Him, and He will belong to you.<br>
<br>
We cannot operate our lives without faith...<br>
faith that there is no bomb in your car, faith that your water is not poisoned, <br>
faith that the bank will return your money. <br>
Putting your faith in Christ will release God's blessings into your life. <br>
<br>
Ask Christ to come into your heart and life. <br>
Give Him control of your life for now and for ever.<br>
Ask for forgiveness for your past sins. <br>
Ask Him to open up your eyes so that you can understand the Bible<br>
and be obedient to God.<br>
<br>
Start reading the Bible every day. <br>
Use the King James Bible, and a modern translation <br>
like The Amplied Bible, <br>
to help you understand the Scriptures. <br>
Read the Gospel of John, Psalms, Proverbs, Romans, <br>
Genesis, Ephesians, Isaiah,,,eventally the Whole Bible. <br>
Read the Bible with obedience to Christ and renewal in mind... <br>
"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: <br>
old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." <br>
(2 Cor 5:17)<br>
<br>
You demonstrate your faith in Him when you talk to Him in prayer.<br>
You talk to GOD by praying to Him. <br>
You can pray anytime, for any reason, about anything. <br>
You can talk to Him as you would to a friend. <br>
In fact He says <br>
"pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks: <br>
for this is the will of GOD concerning you". <br>
(1 Thessalonians 5:15-16)<br>
<br>
Join a good Bible-believing, Christ-honoring Church or Bible study.<br>
Follow Christ in the waters of Baptism,<br>
to demonstrate your faith publicly. <br>
Jesus said,<br>
<br>
Mark 16:16 (KJV)<br>
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;<br>
but he that believeth not shall be ******.<br>
<br>
Remember, if you have now given your life to Christ, <br>
this is only the first step in a life-long and eternal walk with God. <br>
May your life be blessed as you seek for GOD's will in your life.<br>
<br>
God Bless you, and your walk with Jesus<br>
In Christ......brother bob........<><</div><!--EZCODE CENTER END--><br>

When I was 14 years old I was living with my Grandmother and it was night time in the Fall.
There was a complete cloud overcast in the night sky,..and that particular night I was very depressed.
So I walked outside and into the small back yard that we had.
And I looked up into the sky,...and said..."God,..if you are real,..give me a sign.
Let there be no if's,..and's....or but's..about it,...I want there to be no doubts whatsoever that you are really real!Let's settle this once and for all between you and me!Give me a sign!

LOL Well here I was looking up into the cloud covered sky,..looking for that sign.
And I waited ,.....and waited .....And waited.....NOTHING!!!
Boy I was really disappointed,..and was even more depressed!
I remember that I said something under my breath in disappointment ,..but I do not remember what I had mumbled.
But I had started to walk away,..and had not gotten more than a couple of feet,...when all of a sudden,...I heard this loud audible sound coming from up above from where I had looking before I had given up expecting a sign.
A large meteor had burst forth out of the clouds above my head where I had been looking earlier.(Keep in mind I could hear it)
All the colors this meteor had was very beautiful,....the colors were like that what one see's when burning some plastics in a fire.
Well the meteor had burnt out,..but the Sky was still lit up like day.
The sky was lit up as a bright yellowish,redish orange in color,..and the light in the clouds was disappearing in concentic form..Like in ripples when you drop a rock in a pond.

It was not until years later,..that I realized that the Lord did not have to give me a sign,..But I realized that He gave me a sign because of my ignorance,..and that He loved me.
