What a hot and steamy day today. So far in Indiana, the temperature is 101. Even though it hot today the temperature will change over time, but in “hell” the temperature will always be hot. So what can we do to change that. We can accept Jesus as lord and escape the heat.
You may think why so harsh. I have all the time in the world to make the decision whether or not to accept Christ or not. But , do you really have all the time in the world?
New International Version (NIV)
The Thousand Years
20 And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. 2 He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3 He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.
4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They[a] had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.
7 When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth —Gog and Magog —and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. 9 They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
The Judgment of the Dead
11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small,standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.
Jesus makes it very clear what will happen. Amen!! I have no doubt that he will be returning soon. Just take a look around as the world continues to fall apart!!

John 14:21 Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. My Father will love those who love me; I too will love them and reveal myself to them.
I am so blessed to be the daughter of the most high God!! It has been a long week and still the lord is blessing me. No matter what the trial or situation I am surrounded by his presence.
Yesterday I sat with my mother in law at the hospital and a family member and they talked about not really knowing if they are going to heaven. Here was a time that the Lord used me to preach his word and so I did!!
I told them that we have been purchased and that if we are save and have accepted his grace we are heaven bound. I told them there is no doubt in my mind that I will see Jesus face to face and that my family and friends will meet me at the gate.
I was not ashamed or afraid as I used to be when talking about the lord. I told them that my hell fire insurance is paid and they need to make sure that their’s is. How blessed we are that the lord transforms our hearts for his good!! So know that you know where you are headed before time runs out!
Thank all of you who prayed for my mother in law… Praise , glory, and honor to our King!!!Mom was released today to a rehab place near her home. We serve an awesome God!!
Thank you all!!! Amen!!
