A Christian Homemaker's Priorities

  1. God - Pray. Read from the Bible daily. Live your life for Christ, and joy in the Lord always.

  2. Husband - Be kind to him, appreciate him, and never nag, or try to change him. Read and live the book Fascinating Womanhood.

  3. Children - Praise them for good deeds daily. Be consistent when discipline is needed. Provide steady structure, and a steady diet of love. Have a good attitude - little eyes are watching and learning

  4. Homemaking

A) Your appearance - make sure you look nice. Wear a pretty and modest dress, and head covering. Look your best every day, regardless if you plan to go somewhere or not. Make sure you are healthy - take care of your teeth, hair, skin, and figure.

B) Regular meals for you and your family - three healthy, square meals a day

C) A tidy house - even if you are behind on housework, you can still take five minutes to tidy up each room, which will make your home look clean and inviting.

D) Education and self improvement - homeschool/home educate your children, and don't forget to continue enriching yourself via reading good books. There are many books recommended on this website, and some of them are free. Take advantage of these.

Basic Daily Cleaning Routine

  • Tidy the house every morning, afternoon, and evening

  • Dust main living areas

  • Vacuum main living areas

  • Keep things picked up and put away

Do You Have Oil in Your Lamp?

In Matthew chapter 25, many people think that the oil in the lamps must be the Holy Spirit. That is the most common interpretation I see in many study Bibles. The Common Man's Reference Bible also carries this interpretation. I posit that this interpretation is not what the Word of God says. I love the Common Man's Reference Bible, but man's notes are fallible, and I believe the notes about the oil in the lamps of Matthew 25 to be incorrect, there.

If we use the Word of God to interpret the Word of God, then it becomes very clear what the oil in the lamps is, and it is not the Holy Spirit.

Read through Matthew chapter 24. It is a rundown of the seven year tribulation. I did a parallel study of Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 17 and 21, and the book of Revelation, where you can see where it all fits together. Click here to see my study.

The time setting for Matthew 25 is after the middle tribulation rapture. Revelation is clear that there will be Christians after the rapture. These are people who don't get saved until after the rapture event takes place. Further, Matthew 25 references the coming of the Son of Man with His angels, and also says we don't know the day, nor the hour of that event. A distinction is made in the Word of God between the Rapture, and the Second Coming. The Rapture does not occur on the earth - Christ's feet don't touch the earth, and we saved Christians meet Him in the air. It is NOT a secret rapture, and we can discern the seasons, and know the season of rapture. The Second Coming, on the other hand, will not be known as to the day or the hour. It will occur during Armageddon, but when, no one will know, until it happens. They may discern when the time is near, but not the day or hour.

Matthew 25 carries three parables, all teaching the same truth. This is so important, that it teaches this truth three times in a row, for all of chapter 25. This chapter is specifically for those who become Christians after the rapture, but is also for Christians of today, because we are under the same covenant as they, and elsewhere in the Bible, all the principles taught in chapter 25 are also taught for current Christians.

Let's look at the parables, last to first in chapter 25. Please read chapter 25, and keep it opened, next to you, as you continue on in this article. The third parable tells us about those who do works, such as feeding and clothing other Christians in need (brethren of Christ) are doing the will of God. Then it shows that there are those who not only didn't help Christians, but didn't do any works of helping anyone much at all. This parable is referring to professing Christians, as we can see from the pattern in the first and second parables in this chapter.

The goats on the left hand are the unsaved, and included in that group are those who say they are Christians, but they do not produce Christian fruits - see Galatians chapter 5. These unfruitful, in-name-only Christians are the group within the goat group that this parable is referring to.

The second parable speaks of money given to people, and that these people are to use that money to make more money. The money represents a person's talents, or special gifts given to them from the Lord. In Matthew, the King James Version actually uses the word "talent" here. Talents were a form of money, but in today's English, talents now mean giftedness. This works, because the money talents in the parable are actually referring to giftedess talents. This parable is for professing Christians. They are supposed to use their talents and gifts from God to help further the kingdom of God - to help those in the Body of Christ, to bring more into the Body of Christ, etc.

The person who didn't use their talent was cast into hell - where there is weeping, and gnashing of teeth. Those who took the talents and produced more, were the Christians who were producing Christian fruits. The one who did nothing with his talent was a person who claimed to be a Christian, but didn't produce Christian fruits.

Now, to the first parable of Matthew chapter 25 - the lamps and their oil. This is referring to the "ten virgins," because this point is after the rapture. The Bride of Christ, at this point, has already been raptured, to meet Christ. The ten virgins are those who become Christians after the rapture. They too can come into the Kingdom of Heaven, but only if there is oil in their lamps.

Today's Christians have to have oil in their lamps, too, right now:

"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16

Brethren, our lights cannot shine if there is no oil in our lamps. This is also true for the post-rapture, new Christians. They will need oil in their lamps, so that the world may "see" their "good works." Without oil in our lamps, we are not producing the fruits of the Spirit. Please note that good works do not save us, nor does saying a little salvation prayer, but not doing any good works.

When we get saved, the Holy Spirit of God immediately indwells us, but we don't lose our self-will. We have the Holy Spirit guiding us to produce the fruits of a Christian, but we have the choice not to follow the Spirit's guidance. A Christian who continually, and unrepentantly quenches the Holy Spirit (like quenching thirst stops thirst, quenching the Holy Spirit, stops the Spirit from working in your life) is in dire eternal trouble.

Here are seven things that will help make the oil for the Christian's lamp:

"Rejoice evermore.

Pray without ceasing.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Quench not the Spirit.

Despise not prophesyings.

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

Abstain from all appearance of evil." - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-22

By the way, partaking in Christmas, Halloween, Valentines day, Easter, etc. Are appearances of evil. If this is news to you, please take the time to read the articles in the "Holiday Truths" section in the left sidebar.

The Spirit will guide the saved Christian in all things, but the Christian has to be willing to follow, no matter what.

"Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come." -John 16:13

Do you call yourself a "Christian?" If so, are you sure you have oil in your lamp? Remember what happened to those who didn't have oil in their lamps, in Matthew 25? They didn't get into the Kingdom. Is your light shining, for the world to see? If you are unsure, then that is a sure sign that you are not in the Scriptures enough. Read from the King James Bible, every day. Don't jump around. Read it straight through, or read two or more chapters in the Old Testament, and two or more in the New. If you are not reading your Bible all the way through at least once a year, what are you waiting for?

Do you struggle with depression, anxiety, etc? Read the Word. Every day. If you are saved, and you immerse yourself in the King James Bible, you'll be amazed what help the Lord will send through His Word.

If you are not a Christian, or are not sure, the time may be very short. Who knows when you will draw your last breath? While there is breath in you, it is not too late. Please click here to learn the truth, and may the Truth set you free.

Busies, This and That, etc.

It has been a little while since I've been on this blog. It has been quite busy around here, but I've been getting a lot done.

One of the fun things, is that I mentioned to Hubby that I'd really like a treadmill, and he located two treadmills that someone was just giving away. One didn't work, and the other, they didn't know, because it had been stored for a long time.

We got them both, and they are both working. Hubby fixed the broken one, and the stored one works just fine. They are both very nice NordicTracks. I've wanted a treadmill for quite a while, because I'd like to do more jogging, but I'd like to do so without having to leave the house, or overwork the dog each time, LOL.

Five of us have been treading, so it's good we have two mills. I finally finished our family's annual newsletter, and got that sent out. I still need to update the family scrapbook, but I'm hoping to get around to that later this week.

The other day, my sweet Hubby told me he just really wanted to buy something nice for me, that I'd really like, but he didn't know what to get. I showed him a certain planner cover that I found online, which is kind of rare, but that I've really wanted, he got it for me this weekend, and it arrived this morning. I LOVE IT!!! It'll probably be in my next planner video, which will be soon. It's almost March, so it's almost time for my monthly planner setup tour.

Also, I may have found a mathematical pattern of visibility with the "Nibiru" object we've been watching in the sky. I'll know more, if it appears again close to the next window I'm shooting for. I was two days off, on the last one, so that's not bad. Coincidence, or no? I'll soon know. I hope.

Here is the latest Nibiru sighting we captured on video, from earlier this month:


If you haven't been following my "Nibiru" studies, the above video may confuse you. Please take the time to watch my "Nibiru" Playlist:


Also, are we in the tribulation? Probably not, but if so, then mid-tribulation will probably be September 27, 2017, as that's when we'll see the sign in the stars, as depicted in Revelation 12. That is, IF the "Nibiru" object is the "red dragon" sign. Time will tell. Either way, I love that I get to study and witness whatever this object is. It has been great fun.

A Nibiru Update

Thursday, February 2, 2017


Aspergers and Hormones

Being on the spectrum, I like to read articles and lots of books about Aspergers. I also enjoy some of the wonderful Aspie videos on YouTube. I've noticed a lot of the literature delving into the topic of certain hormone levels with a lot of the people on the spectrum.

Melatonin

Many Aspies have sleep issues. They may have trouble falling asleep, and the next day, they are often not well-rested, even if they got a lot of sleep. Why? Sleep studies have shown that many Aspies produce lower than normal levels of melatonin, which is a "go to sleep" hormone. Many people on the spectrum have learned that if they take melatonin before bed, they are able to fall asleep within 40 minutes, AND they get MORE REM sleep, and therefore awaken refreshed and rested. This goes with some of the sleep studies, where it was found that many Aspies not only have trouble falling asleep, but that they get less REM sleep than the NT (neurtypical) - not Aspie person.

If you are an Aspergian, and have sleep issues, you may want to consider giving melatonin a try.

Oxytocin

Oxytocin has been known as the "bonding hormone." Many Aspergians have been tested, and found to have lower oxytocin levels than NTs. Some Aspie mamas have had trouble breast feeding their babies. They have trouble getting a let down reflex, and therefore their hungry child only gets the foremilk, which is watery, and has very little fat and cream in it. Then, they find they have to supplement with a bottle. Sometimes this is tied to the Aspergian mama not having very high levels of oxytocin, which helps trigger the let down reflex.

When a mother nurses her child, she and the child bond, and this triggers the NT woman's let down reflex. While the Asperger's mama can bond with her child just as much, the oxytocin "bonding hormone" won't necessarily flow freely. It is important to note that Aspies can bond with family, friends, and other people, even though they may have low oxytocin levels. However, I must wonder if this could be part of why we have trouble connecting to many others. For example, I am bonded to the people I go to church with. I truly feel like we are all family. But, I am not connected to them, and don't know how.

It's like everyone is walking around with a U.S. plug and jack, and they can plug into each other, and connect. My plug and jack are European, so it doesn't fit with all the U.S. ones walking around. Occasionally, a person with an adapter will come along, and we connect. My husband is adaptive, and he is one of the few humans I have connected with, but we are not connected on all things, because I can't always understand his thinking - with him being NT, and my being on the spectrum.

Another example of unconnetedness... One day, we were at a big public event, and it was intermission, so a lot of people were getting onto the elevators to go get some snacks and use the restroom, etc. We took the stairs down, and headed to a restroom. The woman's room had a line going out the door. I noticed many of the ladies freely chatting with each other, as if they've known each other for years, but I'm certain they just met. When someone would try to open a conversation with me, it would end up flat and short, and they would eventually turn and talk to the lady on the other side of them, instead.

I had no desire to start any convos, so I didn't try. I just wanted to get to a stall, and pee. That was my sole goal in the restroom.

We took the elevator back up stairs, and people and my husband were casually chatting in the elevator. I just don't know how people do that, but at the same time, I don't care, because I don't really want to. But I wonder - why do they want to? If my oxytocin levels were at those of the common NT, would I want to? I don't want to want to, so whatevs, right? LOL

Hypersexuality

Not all, but most Aspergians have been found to either be asexual, or hypersexual. The asexual ones may have the gift of singleness. They are not interested much, if at all, in the other gender, have little to no desire to get married or procreate. They are happy being on their own, following their own routines, and don't want another person getting into the mix. This type of Aspergian is mentioned more often in a lot of the literature than the hypersexual.

The hypersexual Aspergian wants badly to have a mate, and likes and wants sexual intimacy often. When this is with a male Aspergian, it can often be seen as a manly thing, but with a female, it can be seen as a taboo. The question here, is why are the hypersexuals hypersexual? Some have conjectured that it reduces anxiety, via making the Aspie produce oxytocin via the sexual intimacy. I'm fairly certain this is correct. I don't know if this is the only reason, but I'm confident it is part of the puzzle.

To the hypersexual, I would direct you to 1 Corinthians chapter 7, where it says that if you are in lust, get married, so that you won't sin. Fornication is never the answer. The Christian Aspergian who desires a spouse will get one, if it is God's Will, and they put it into His hands.

Conclusion

Asperger's people are different from NTs in many ways, but we are still part of the human race, even if we usually feel like we are from a different planet. Just because we are different, it does not mean we are broken. Isn't diversity something that is supposed to be celebrated? That's what I keep hearing. Don't try to make yourself into an NT. Be you. What are they saying these days? Something like "You just do you, Boo." Right?

The Rest of my Birthday Presents

The rest of my birthday presents arrived in the mail, today. I'm so glad I had a nice birthday coupon from Franklin Covey, because I got to spend it on a compact sized Aurora planner binder, and a classic sized one:

Aren't they gorgeous?! I immediately did a video on them, and there will be more to come...


Wow! So happy with them so far! :-)

Amazing Honey

Seriously, honey is great. I don't mean the "pure" honey in the store. I mean raw honey. Some stores carry raw honey, and some even carry local raw honey - this is the best.

Good, raw honey has virtually a limitless shelf life. The stuff just doesn't seem to go bad. Whether you prep or stock or not, you can't go wrong with honey.

- It is a nutrient-rich food, and great source for many vitamins and minerals

- Honey can be fermented in water to make mead

- You can distill the pure alcohol out of the homemade honey mead to run certain generators and vehicles

- Honey is a great cleansing agent, and can be used in the place of soap to wash the body, if needed

- Honey shampoo is wonderful on the hair. Just mix a few tablespoons of honey with a few tablespoons of water, then pour it onto your wet hair. Rub it into all of your hair and scalp, then rinse. It comes right out, and leaves your hair clean and happy

- A good raw honey can also be used as a salve on cuts and scratches

- Not to mention honey is one of the most delicious sweetening agents. When I make clover tea (from the clover flowers I forage outside) I sweeten it with just a bit of honey, and it is fabulous. I also like to sweeten homemade flax milk, and various teas with honey. Just a little bit does it.

I love honey, and I hope you do now, too.

Make Your Own Glasses

For those who wear glasses or contact lenses, what if you lost your corrective lenses, and were unable to get some more, for a time? This could be due to a natural disaster, financial crisis, or just not being able to get an appointment with the eye doctor for a while. What do you do?

You can make your own glasses. Have you ever heard of pinhole glasses? Years ago, I read about what they are, and then I made a pair, to see if this was hype, or real.

I took a pair of cheap sunglasses, and knocked the lenses out. Then, I took a cereal box and cut some lens shapes from it, and taped them into the empty lens slots of the sunglasses frames. Next, I used a needle and poked a LOT of small holes in the cardboard. The glasses looked quite funky, but I wasn't making a fashion statement, I was doing an experiment. I took off my usual glasses, and stood across the room. I looked at something across the room that would be in perfect focus if I had my corrective lenses on, and without my glasses, it was just a blurry mass.

I put on the pinhole glasses - Amazing! I could see the object perfectly. I almost disbelieved my own eyes. I removed the pinhole glasses - blurry. I put the pinhole glasses back on - in focus.

I decided I wanted a more official, sturdy pair, so I got online, and purchased an official pair. Those pinhole glasses worked even better than the pair I had made. I put them into my purse, and when I'd meet up with a friend who wore glasses, I'd asked them to remove their corrective lenses, and try the pinholes. Astounding. Almost always they'd report good vision with the pin hole glasses, both nearsighted, and farsighted.

If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or both, I think you should do what I described above, and make a pair of pinhole glasses. Try them out. You may not look ultra cool, but now you have a back up plan, should something happen to your contacts or glasses.

Meanwhile, if you wish to instead purchase some really nice pinhole glasses, they are much easier to find, than they were years ago, when I got my first pair. Go to Amazon.com and do a search on "pinhole glasses," to view many styles of pinhole glasses, some costing only a few bucks.

I recently picked up a pair from Wal-Mart, in their sunglasses section, for about three dollars. It doesn't hurt to check your local Wal-Mart, and see if they have any in stock. Mine did.

Nibiru Update

I know it's been a while since I've done much of any Nibiru videos, and there's a few reasons why. I share those reasons, as well as some of the Nibiru footage from September 2016 through January 2017 that we've captured:

Birthday Haul, Ya'll!

I was sick on my birthday, as was some other family members. A few days afterwards, we were all feeling pretty good, so we "had" my birthday. I wanted to eat out, and then do some shopping. Hubby and the kids were a lot of fun, and Hubby was so great in taking me shopping. :-) We ate out at Olive Garden, where I got a free dessert. I got to shop at Michael's (I had a birthday coupon from them that I got to use), Target (mostly the Dollar Spot. I love their Dollar Spot), a thrift store (I didn't get anything, they didn't have anything I wanted), and a used book store.

I also got to shop online at Franklin Covey for planner fun. I had a birthday coupon that I got to use with them, as well.

I'll probably do a YouTube video of my FC goodies, when I get them. Stay tuned. :-)

Meanwhile, here's my birthday haul, ya'll:

Schrodinger's Cat and Kittens, etc.

I read the book Schrodinger's Cat twice. It was pretty good. Imagine my excitement, when I saw the part two book, in a used bookstore. I spent the few bucks, and got the paperback. I had been in that book for months. I made it half way through, then just skimmed through the rest. I just couldn't get all the way through it. Boring. There was something missing that was in the first book, etc. I liked Schrodinger's Cat,, but the book Schrodinger's Kittens, I just couldn't get into.

I thought maybe it was because I've had less time for reading, lately, but as soon as I admitted defeat, and moved to the next book in my reading list, I found that was not the case. I sped through the next book. In fact, I finished it on Saturday night. When I get into the next book on my list after that, I'll update the list in my sidebar.

BTW, if you don't know, the two above mentioned books are on quantum mechanics. I like quantum/particle physics, so some of the books in my reading list reflect this.

Now, the book I just finished this weekend, book two of the fictional Maze Runner series... Book one was good. Book two - The Scorch Trials, amazing. It is SO different from the movie. Pretty much the only similarities are the characters' names, and that they were in the maze.

I read the Hunger Games series, the Divergent Series, and the first few books of the Ender's Game series, so far. I like these genre of movies, and it interests me into reading those books.

Speaking of sci-fi readage, I'm on the lookout for Fountains of Paradise, by Arthur C. Clarke. I checked two used book stores, and neither had it. I may just get a used copy from Amazon, or something.

Happy reading! :-)


Build Your Foundation on the Rock of Salvation

"He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great." -Luke 6:48-49

"The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation." -2 Samuel 22:47

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." -John 8:32

"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

The terms "Christian" and "personal relationship with Jesus Christ" have been bantered around so much, that for many people, they have lost their original savor. What is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Is it going to church? Is it being a "good person?" Is it via doing certain rituals, or following certain traditions? No, it is so much simpler than that.

Jesus says:

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." -Revelation 3:20

Let Jesus into your heart and life. Put your faith and trust in Him, and in Him alone.

Why did Jesus Christ come to this earth? He came to pay for our sins. Have you ever broken any of the Ten Commandments? Did you know that Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount that just looking at someone with lust in your heart is the same thing as committing adultery in your heart?

Many people will say I'm a good person. Sure, I've stolen a few paper clips in my time, and I've told some lies, but I've never killed anyone, so I'm good enough for heaven. Don't be so sure. Have you ever felt hatred toward someone? If so, then you are guilty of committing murder in your heart:

"Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him." -1 John 3:15

If you have stolen, lied, lusted after someone, hated someone, loved someone or something more than God, etc., then you have broken at least 5 of the Ten Commandments. Do you really think you'd make it to heaven? Not according to God's Word:

"Know ye not that the unrighteous {sinful} shall not inherit the kingdom of God {or go to heaven when they die}? Be not deceived: neither fornicators {sex outside of marriage, or pre-marital sex}, nor idolaters {loving something or someone more than you love God}, nor adulterers {physically, or in the heart}, nor effeminate {cross dressing}, nor abusers of themselves with mankind {homosexuality}, Nor thieves {even stealing a pen or paper clip makes you a thief}, nor covetous {inordinately desiring wealth or things}, nor drunkards, nor revilers {one who assails with abusive language}, nor extortioners {blackmail, or wresting anything from anyone via force}, shall inherit the kingdom of God." -1 Corinthians 6:9-10 {words in curly brackets are my notes}

But there is good news:

"And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." -1 Corinthians 6:11

We are all sinners:

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" -Romans 3:23

Even Mary, the woman chosen by God to be a vessel that would carry Jesus in her womb, was a sinner, and in need of a Saviour:

"And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour." - Mary said this in Luke 1:47. Only sinners need a Saviour, and Mary also accepted Jesus Christ as her Saviour.

We are all imperfect, fallible sinners:

"This 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. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But 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. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." -1 John 1:5-8

The blood of Jesus Christ is what cleanses us from all sins. Jesus came to this earth to die to pay for our sins. You see, Leviticus tells us that 'the life is in the blood,' and that it takes spilt blood to atone for sin.

When we choose to truly believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, and to live our lives for Christ, then Christ's spilt blood cleanses us from our sins:

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." -Isaiah 1:18

Jesus tells us this:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." - Jesus said this, in John 3:16-18

Paul gives us a simple "step by step process" on how to be saved:

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." -Romans 10:9-11

Jesus is our one and only mediator:

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" -1 Timothy 2:5

Jesus is our High Priest:

"Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." -Hebrews 4:14-15

We are to follow the Lord and the Bible, not traditions of man:

"But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?" -Matthew 15:3

Jesus is God:

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." -1 Timothy 3:16

If Jesus isn't the Lord of your life, then I hope that you will let Him into your heart and life this very moment.

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." -Romans 5:8

Have you built your foundation on the Rock of Salvation?

Jesus is the way. If you would like to receive Jesus into your heart and life, then let Him know. Pray to the Lord, telling Him that you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and that you believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the death penalty for your sins. Tell this to God in your own words, from your heart.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." -Romans 6:23

Believe, and Receive:

"In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise" -Ephesians 1:13

When you believe on Jesus Christ, you receive the Holy Spirit. You are sealed as a child of God.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ into your heart and life as your Lord and Saviour, and you believe that Jesus died on the cross in your place, to pay the death penalty for your sins, and that Christ rose from the dead three days later, and you are ready to let Him lead your life, and you will live for Him, then you are saved, and born again.

You are now a saved Child of God, with the Holy Spirit living within you. Dedicate your life to the Lord, and live for Him. Please get a King James Bible and turn to the Gospel of John. That is the fourth book in the New Testament. If you don't have a King James Bible, then you can read it for free, online - here.

After you've read the Gospel of John, go on to read Acts, and then Romans. These three books will bring you through the Gospel, the early church, and basic Christian doctrine. After you've read these three, then turn to the beginning of the New Testament, and read it all the way through. After that, read both the Old and New Testaments.

You should also follow the Lord and get baptized in water. A Believer's Baptism doesn't save you. Only faith in Christ saves you. A Believer's Baptism is an outward showing of your salvation. It symbolizes you being born again. When you are lowered under the water, it shows you dying to your old self, and when you are raised up out of the water, it symbolizes you being born again, as a new creature in Christ. This is called a Believer's Baptism, because, according to the Bible, a person is supposed to get baptized after they have believed on Christ. Anyone who was "baptized" before having faith in Christ just got wet - nothing more. You don't need to find a church to get baptized in. Any born again Christian can baptize you in any acceptable body of water - even a public swimming pool.

Find or start a good home church. Here is more information on Home Church, and why you should home church, or find one to join - HouseChurch.org.

Immerse yourself in the Bible. The Bible is God's love letter to you. It is also your Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.
