"Words Of Encouragement And What Happens When You Die" (With Videos) - Inspirational Weekend


When I view beautiful flowers like the Hibiscus above, it reminds me of the Lord's tender mercies and His love for mankind by giving us such beauty to embrace while living in a chaotic world.  An evil world.  A cruel and selfish world, where godliness .... for the most part .... is not practiced and is mocked by unbelievers.  True and faithful believers need words of encouragement and hope.  We can find such hope and encouragement in God's Holy Word, the Bible.

Featured in this post, as in my last post, are two videos,  one by Amir Tsarfati and another by evangelist Dan Goodwin, only these are different and more recent videos than in the April 9, 2018, writing.  Following is a 24 minute video by Amir with words of clarification and encouragement, considering recent events.



Have you ever wondered where the dead go when they die?  Specifically, where the Old Testament righteous people went, since heaven was not open to them at that time?  Remember the parable given by Jesus in Luke 19:19-31, about the rich man and Lazarus the beggar, and where they went when they died?  The rich man went to hell (verse 23), and Lazarus went to Abraham's bosom, or paradise (also verse 23).  Many scholars believe this is a true story or history of two real individuals.  

The Talmud mentions both paradise and Abraham's bosom as the home of the righteous.  The main lesson here is that once death comes a person cannot change his eternal destiny.  

Abraham told the rich man who was in hell, "And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence."   -  Luke 16:26

In the following 28 minute video from prophecyinthenews.com ,  evangelist Dan Goodwin gives much information on this topic, as well as numerous Scriptures.  He also tells us that New Testament saints, you and I, can only enter heaven and be in God's presence  by being born again.  


Hebrews 11 tells us of the righteous men of old, who by faith obeyed God and it was accounted to them as righteousness.  For example,  Hebrews 11:7 says:

"By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith."    

The good Lord wants us to exhibit faith, and thereby be full of righteousness and pleasing to Him.  The way to develop faith is to read your Bible and by being often in prayer.  In other words, to develop a close, personal, intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ His Son.   Our purpose is to do His will and to bring glory to the Lord.  

"But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him."   -  Hebrews 11:6

Now is the time to be busy for the Lord, bringing lost souls to come to a faith in Jesus as their Savior.  We are living in the end times, the last "hour" of the last days.  Be occupied in the Lord's work.

Be ready!!

Jesus could return at any moment !!

If you are an unbeliever, turn to the Lord before it is too late !  Pray and ask for forgiveness of your sins, repent and do not go back to a life of sin; have faith and believe in Jesus as your Savior; believe in His resurrection.  

Remember, God accepts U-turns !

Jesus loves you !

He is waiting with open arms of love and forgiveness!

Turn to Jesus with faith and belief!

He will pardon your sins and give you eternal life!



Romans 10:9,10,13 tells us:  (9)  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. (10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  (13) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

"Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  and whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.  Believest thou this?"    -  John 11: 25-26

Update On Israeli Airstrikes On Syria and The Three Prophetic Babylons (With Videos)


There is much talk about world war right now, and the latest precursor to this, many believe, is the recent Israeli airstrike last night on Syria.  Following is an update on this by Amir Tsarfati in an 18 minute video:


Please take the time to watch the above update.  The prophecy of the destruction of Damascus in Isaiah 17:1 could happen at any time.  Damascus has already suffered extensive damage, and it would not take much to completely destroy it as Isaiah prophesied.  So much happening in the world today, and particularly in the Middle East, that we are in the beginning stages right now of what the Bible prophesied about the end times in which we now live.  So Jesus' return is now more imminent than it has ever been.  

Luke 21:28 encourages us with Jesus' words,  "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."

The next video is about the 3 Babylons and Mystery Babylon as prophesied in Revelation 17 and Revelation 18.   The 3 Babylons are the literal Babylon in the desert, figurative Babylon or the spirit of Babylon, and the prophetic Babylon.  Evangelist Dan Goodwin thoroughly and by Scriptures explains and focuses on the prophetic Babylon in the following video.  Actually, there are 2 prophetic Babylons:  the religious part in Revelation 17, and the financial and political part in Revelation 18.  To find where these 2 Babylons are located, according to Mr. Goodwin, please watch the 28 minute video from prophecyinthenews.com


We are definitely living in the last days, and we need to get ourselves ready for Jesus' soon return.  Believers should occupy themselves in the work of the Lord until then, winning souls for the Lord.  Be much in prayer and read the Holy Word daily.  Draw even closer to Jesus.

If you are an unbeliever, you need to get right with the Lord.  Repent of your sins and ask for forgiveness.  Believe that Jesus died for your sins, and that faith in Him and belief in His resurrection are necessary for salvation.  

Romans 10:9,10,13 tells us:  (9)  "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. (10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation....(13) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

"And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."  -  1 John 2:17

"Pure Religion - Pure Worship" - Inspirational Weekend


"Pure religion and undefiled is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."  -  James 1:27

The King James Study Bible notes tells us, "James identifies true religion as involving two actions:  service and separation which relate to two basic attributes of God:  Love and Holiness."

We show love when we serve others, and we show holiness when we are separated from the world and are thereby not contaminated with sin by becoming worldly.

The word religion in the Greek (threskei) can also be translated worship.  The word religion has shifted in meaning today than what was meant back when it was first translated into English. The word religion meant rather worship.  Strong's Concordance gives the meaning as both religion and worshipping. 

"The feeling is one thing, the expression of it is another.  The feeling is religion, the expression of it is worship."  Therefore,in James 1:27, he was "not talking about religion, but about its expression, worship."


"James described religion by its fruits, and that on two sides: first, that of love and mercy; secondly, that of purity from worldly defilements."

It should be noted that this verse was an example to follow.  The fatherless and the widow were most vulnerable and usually had the most need, so James used them as examples, but the principle applies to others in need as well.  As believers, we are to serve God by serving our fellowman.  And by visiting the needy,  James meant more than a social visit, of course.  James meant to serve them, to help them in any way possible.  Doing so reflects the love of the heavenly Father, and it is our privilege to help the needy.  It is obeying God to do so.   It is also a sign that you are a true believer and that you have love from the Father working in your life; the Holy Spirit is within you.

"Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God."  -   Matthew 5:8

The heart is the center of one's being, including mind, will and emotions.  To have a pure heart, you need to be a true believer, filled with the Holy Spirit.  You need to have been born again (John 3:3) and you need to have a close, personal, intimate, love relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  You do this by much prayer and Bible study; that is how you come to truly know the Lord.


It is all about love.  Beneficence comes from a heart full of love.  

You can trust God ! He loves you !  Take everything to Him in prayer.  Ask Him for an extra portion of His Holy Spirit.  Ask Him for guidance and to fill your heart to overflowing with love for others.  God answers prayers that are within His will.

If you have never been born again, it is critical that you go now to the Lord in prayer, asking for forgiveness and truly repenting of your sins, never to go back to a life of sin again.  Believe with every ounce of your being that Jesus is the Savior, the Redeemer, and that at the cross He shed His blood for you and for all who would have faith and believe in Him; for all who also believe He rose again from the dead, thereby making a way for true believers to have everlasting life.  

Don't delay.

Jesus could return at any moment.

You do not want to be left behind and thereby suffer the torments and judgments which occur during the following 7 year tribulation.

Jesus Loves You !

He is waiting to hear from you!

He will welcome you with open arms of love and pardon!


Romans 10:9,10,13 urges us: (9)  "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. (10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  (13) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

John 14:2-3 says,  (2)  "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you. (3)  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. "

"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

America Is In Deep Trouble (Video)


"America has become a humanistic society" says Dr. David Reagan of christinprophecy.org .  He also tells us that "The core belief in humanism is its conviction that man is capable of solving his own problems without any supernatural intervention from God."

2 Timothy 3:1-5 tells us:  (1) This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  (2) For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, (3) Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, (4) traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; (5) having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

All of the above things are prevalent in the world today, and perhaps especially so in America.  In verse 2 above it mentions that men will be lovers of their own selves.......that is humanism.   In verse 4 it tells us that men will be lovers of pleasures.....that is hedonism.   In 1 Timothy 6:10 it tells us that the root of all evil is the love of money.......that is materialism.  Many people today make money their god.  

You have to admit, America is guilty of all of the above sins.  Following is a 28 minute video from christinprophecy.org  which goes into much more detail and also discusses "God's prophetic voices to America" :


America is indeed in deep trouble and long overdue for judgement from God, as many have forgotten Him and many do not have a close, personal, intimate, love relationship with the Lord.  You must read and study your Bible to hear God "speak" to you; and you must pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).  That is how you build a relationship with God, by communicating with Him.  

"Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you....."  - James 4:8a


Jesus gave us many signs to watch for concerning the end times, which we are now living in....in fact, we are in the last "hour" of the end times.  Read all of Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 to discover these signs of the last days.  

"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."   -    Jesus speaking at Luke 21:36

If Jesus returns tomorrow, or even in the next hour, would you be ready?  Can you honestly say that you know Him, believe in Him, have faith in Him, and that you long to be with Him for all eternity?

When Jesus walked the earth almost 2,000 years ago, the religious leaders of that day were not expecting Him to come as a "meek lamb".   They were expecting a conqueror to free them from the Romans.  So they missed Jesus' coming, so much so that they crucified Him.  Go here to read an article titled "Do Not Miss His Coming." 

America is in deep trouble because it is so full of ungodly people and people who have no love of God whatsoever.  Most everyone just wants to do their own thing.  And that is not to mention the violence we see today and the corruption in politics and I could go on and on.  In the days of long ago,  God would send enemies to wreck havoc on Israel when that nation would turn from Him and get caught up in sin and in worshiping other gods.  In that sense, they had rejected the good Lord, and they paid the price, often becoming captives in a foreign land.  God punished them severely, just like He will punish America.  

We can get so caught up in everyday living, work, family, and just also having a good time, that we have no time for the Lord.  We let things of the world crowd Him out.  In other words, we do not put Jesus first in our life.  That is the worst mistake anyone can make.  Your eternal destiny depends on the choices you make right now.  Choose Jesus and spend eternity in paradise with Him;  choose the world and its desires, and spend eternity in hell.  

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?  whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God."    -  James 4:4

"I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:  therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:"   -
Deuteronomy 30:19

The good news is:

Jesus loves you !!

He will pardon your sins and wipe the slate clean !

Choose Life

Choose Jesus

Come to Him in repentance.  Pray for forgiveness. Believe with all your being that Jesus is the Savior, and that you need Him.  You must have belief in His resurrection also as Romans 10 tells us.  If you are truly a follower of Jesus, you will live a godly life and put the Lord first.


Romans 10:9,10,13 informs us:  (9) "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.  (10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (13)  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:  it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."    Ephesians 2:8-9

"It Is Finished !" - Inspirational Weekend


Resurrection Day is this coming Sunday, as all Christians know.  They will hear sermons and Scriptures concerning Jesus' resurrection from the dead.  He suffered a cruel and painful death; but He did it out of love for us - us undeserving humans that can be so stubborn and self-willed.  Oh how He loves us !!  We should thank Him everyday for His sacrifice because we who believe in Him will have everlasting life !  

For believers, therefore, death is not the end, but the beginning.  The beginning of life in eternity with our blessed Lord Jesus Christ; and in a new resurrected body.  

"Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.  Believest thou this?"   -  John 11:25-26

We have all sinned and deserve death, God's punishment.  ( Romans 3:23).  But God in His great love and mercy, sent His Son Jesus to die for our sins; to die in our place, taking the punishment that we deserved, so that those who believe in Him and in His resurrection may have eternal life. (Romans 10:9,10,13).  

Charles Spurgeon has said, "This love of Christ is indeed measureless and fathomless; none can attain unto it" ......"Herein is love! and truly it is love that "passeth knowledge".  O let this love fill our hearts with adoring gratitude, and lead us to practical manifestations of its power."

Jesus' resurrection is the foundation of the Christian faith.  I urge you to read 1 Corinthians chapter 15.  Also study Isaiah 53 which prophesied about Jesus, and was written during the prophet Isaiah's  later years and he lived till around 681 BC. 


"When Jesus therefore had received  the vinegar, He said, "It is finished": and He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost."     -  John 19:30

John is the only Gospel that mentions that Jesus said this.  It is no doubt the cry mentioned at Matthew 27:50 and Mark 15:37.  

The fact that Jesus said "it is finished" signifies several things:

(1)  The work of man's redemption was completed.
(2)  Every obstacle was removed, symbolized by the tearing of the veil.
(3)  The way of mercy was opened.
(4)  Jesus had met man's desperate need as a transgressor.
(5)  He had satisfied the law's demand in God's government.
(6)  He had answered every Scriptural type with an antitype. 
(7)  He had fulfilled every ancient prophecy concerning Himself.
(8)  Thus, in one word, Christ exhaustively discharged that entire 
       former dispensation in a new one.

Christ triumphed over the devil and his cohorts (evil angels) and must have sent unimaginable alarm into hades itself.  (Colossians 2:15).


In ancient times, telelestai  (finished) would be written across invoices to indicate "paid in full".  It is the same word used in John 19:28.  All was finished. Jesus had given His life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45).  God's will had been done.  The means of the world's salvation had now been provided.

How could we ever become self-important and self-righteous, knowing that we, as sinners, deserve death and punishment except for the love and mercy of the Lord,   We should be very humbled and very grateful for all Jesus did for us, by dying in our place.

Let us sing praises to Him, and in true gratitude worship Him as our Master and Savior !

Following is a worship song you are probably familiar with:




"For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many."   -  Mark 10:45

"And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after Me, cannot be My disciple."          -         Luke 14:27

"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."   -  John 3:3

"For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved."    -  John 3:17

"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


If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to make the choice today to repent of your sins, and pray to the Lord for forgiveness.  Believe with all your being that Jesus is the Savior, and that He is waiting to pardon you if you will turn to Him in faith and repentance.  

Jesus loves you !!   

Choose Him !  Choose Life Eternal !


Romans 10:9,10,13 tells us: (9)  "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. (10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  (13) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

"Wisdom And The Most Important Decision" (Videos - Chuck Smith and Andrew Murray) - Inspirational Weekend


The dictionary informs us that wisdom is the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting.  The word "wisdom" is mentioned 222 times in the Hebrew Bible.  True wisdom is a gift from God.  Jesus is wisdom, as stated in 1 Corinthians 1:30 below:

"But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification. and redemption."

"True wisdom is the knowledge of Divine things, rightly used."  

"Wisdom is the power to see and the inclination to choose the best and highest goal, together with the surest means of attaining it."   -  J.I. Packer 

The book of Proverbs is best known for its wisdom.  I recommend you read all of it, and especially chapter 8 of Proverbs.  

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom:  and the knowledge of the holy is understanding."  -  Proverbs 9:10

We are only wise when we turn to God and reverently fear Him and go to Him about all decisions that need to be made; asking for the Holy Spirit to guide us and to give us strength and endurance.  He will enable us to deal rightly in all matters, when we seek to know His will and to follow through by obeying Him and doing His will, not ours.  We need to develop a close, personal, intimate, love relationship with God through Jesus Christ in order to know His will and to obey Him.  You must communicate with someone in order to build a relationship.  The same is true of the heavenly Father.  Go to Him often in prayer, and study His Holy Word to, in turn, listen to Him speak through His written Word.  As you come to know the Lord more and more, you will obey Him out of love, and you will surrender your life and your very being to Him.  

Andrew Murray says, "Abiding in Him, His wisdom will come to you as a spontaneous outflow of a life rooted in Him."  Following is an 11 minute audio sermon by Murray about abiding in Christ as your wisdom:


The late pastor, Chuck Smith, gives the benefits of wisdom in the following 25 minute audio sermon.  


In pastor Smith's sermon above, he mentions how experience is often the best teacher, especially when raising children.  We learn wisdom when we make mistakes and thereby learn what to avoid in the future.


We also learn wisdom by reading the Scriptures ....a really deep, serious study of God's Word.  

"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him."  -  James 1:5

To acquire wisdom, go to the good Lord in prayer and ask Him to give you wisdom.  God is a giver.  If you are a believer and in good standing with Him, He will grant your petition.  That is, if you ask in faith.  Remember, the doubting man dishonors God.  Therefore if we do not have faith, we should not expect God to answer us.  (James 1:6,7).


In making decisions, we should always endeavor to make them in a manner that glorifies God.  Always ask yourself what the Bible says about the problem.  Talk to your pastor or a mature believer and ask them if they can help you to more fully understand just what God's Word says about the matter you are concerned about; the decision you need to make.  Also, you may go by your past experiences to help you make a decision.   And, again, go to the Lord in prayer for help.

Ask yourself if this decision will keep you from a good witness for the Lord. We need to honor God and bring Him glory in all that we do and say. Consider all options and, again, take it to the Lord in prayer.

The most important decision anyone can make is the one that determines their eternal destiny.....heaven or hell.   If you are a true believer and have been born again (John 3:3) and you are putting God first in your life, then you will have heaven to look forward to.  But beware if you are putting off coming to the Lord in faith; refusing to believe in Jesus as your Savior.  Think about it:  Eternity is a long time to spend it in the wrong place, and suffering unbearable torment at that.

We are living in the last days the Bible prophesied about; current events are evidence that we are, indeed, in the very last hour of this present age.  Read Ezekiel 38 and 39 for starters; all the countries are now coming against Israel (as prophesied) in an effort to annihilate her.  Israel is God's prophetic time clock; God will rescue His chosen people.

The fact that this is the last "hour" of the end times, should move everyone to turn to God and cry out to Him for deliverance.  Unbelievers should repent of their sins, pray to the Lord for forgiveness, and believe with all their being that Jesus is the Savior and to put their faith and trust in Him.  They need to also believe that He rose from the dead and is now in heaven to make intercession for us to the Father.  (Romans 10:9,10,13).

Time is short.

Jesus will return soon to take true believers to heaven with Him in the Rapture of the Church.

Don't be left behind to face the torment and horrors of the 7 year Tribulation period and then afterwards hell itself, unless you repent first.

Jesus loves you !!

He will welcome you with open arms and pardon your sins, if you will only turn to Him in faith and belief and repentance.



"I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:  therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:" -  Deuteronomy 30:19

Concerning end time events, Jesus said at Luke 21:28:  "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."

"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."   -  John 3:16

"God Is A Sanctuary" (Videos) - Inspirational Weekend


These cattle egrets seem to have found themselves a tranquil sanctuary in the branches of an extremely large old tree.  A sanctuary can be a church or an area in your home where you pray to and worship God, or any place of refuge where you feel safe and protected.  The ancient Jews, as mentioned in the Bible at Numbers 35:11-15, had cities of refuge where the person who accidentally killed someone could flee to for safety from the avenger of blood.

But God Himself called Himself a sanctuary:

"Therefore say, thus saith the LORD God; although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come."  -  Ezekiel 11:16

Following is a 2 minute sermon clip by Charles Spurgeon on the above verse: 


The ancient Jews were sent into exile in other countries because God was punishing them for their lack of respect for Him and for their disobedience and rebellion.  It was an event that displayed the holiness of God; and it was a severe punishment for His people.  The event was to show God's goodness. Even in judgment, He showed mercy.  It was not His intention to destroy, but to correct and reform.

The good Lord assured His people that He would be "a little sanctuary" for them wherever they went.  In using the word "little", perhaps God was saying that He would be as they were; that He would bow down to their littleness and be to each one of them a little sanctuary.  "When the Lord communes with the greatest of men, He must become little to speak with them."  The dispersion made the Jews able to worship God everywhere without a material temple.


"And He shall be for a sanctuary....."  -  Isaiah 8:14a

"Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe Me, the hour cometh when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. (22)  Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. (23)  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such to worship Him.  (24) God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth."   -  John 4:21-24

A sanctuary was a place of refuge, a place of worship, a place of mercy, the house of mercy, and a place of great holiness.  God Himself is all of that and more.  He will be to us a place of communion and of revelation.  He answers our prayers, and today He "speaks" to us through the Bible, His Holy Word.  So you may find in God and Jesus your sanctuary.  All that you ever could want or need.

If for some reason, either sickness or a long journey, you are unable to go to the house of God, remember that God is your sanctuary and you can worship Him and pray to Him from your home or hospital.  

Below is a song video that relates to this message, although it does not mention God Himself as being our sanctuary:


If you are an unbeliever, you need to turn now to the Lord in repentance before it is too late.  Before Jesus returns to take true believers to be home with Him in heaven; or else you will be left behind to face unbelievable horrors during the 7 year tribulation period after the Rapture of the church occurs.  Your eternal destiny, heaven or hell, is what is at stake.

"But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find Him, if thou seek Him with all thy heart and all thy soul."   -  Deuteronomy 4:29

"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

Jesus is ready to receive you in His loving embrace.  His outstretched arms will receive you with joy and with pardon for your sins.

All it takes is true repentance and a prayer for forgiveness. And, of course, a belief and faith in Jesus as your Savior and belief in His resurrection.

Romans 10:9,10,13 tells us :  (9) "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.  (10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  (13) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
