ONCE TO DIE; THEN THE JUDGMENT

Hebrews 9:27 states ” And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment .”

One of the strange aspects of modern life is the way that so many wish to ignore the fact that death is the inescapable lot of every human being. People close their minds and do everything possible to forget the sure coming of the grim reaper.

Only the Christian, washed in the Blood of Jesus, can face the inevitable with the serenity of Dr. F. B. Meyer, one of the great saints of a bygone time. Just hours before his death, Dr. Meyer wrote to a friend: “ I have just heard, to my surprise, that I have only a few days to live. It may be that before this reaches you I shall have entered the palace. Don’t trouble to write. We shall meet in the morning. With much love, yours affectionately, F. B. Meyer.

One reason men fear to face the fact of death is that we all instinctively realize that death is not the end. Death strips away all disguises and reveals us as we really are. Death does not change eternal destiny; it confirms it.

If you are unsure where you will go when you die, please read what God has said in His word.

First……. God loves you

” 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

Second…. Man is a sinner, and sin has separated him from God.

” For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good and sinneth not.” Eccl 7:20

” For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Rom. 3:23

Third…… Jesus Christ is the only remedy for sin!

” For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God.” 1 Peter 3:18

” Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

Fourth…… You must receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour.

Jesus calls this the ” new birth”. He told Nicodemus ” Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3

We invite you now to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal saviour. ” But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.” John 1:12

PRAY THIS PRAYER AND MEAN IT WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART.

Dear Lord Jesus, I now realize that I am a sinner. I accept the fact that you died for me on the rugged Cross of Calvary. I am sorry for my sins and I turn away from them. I now open my hearts door and receive you as Saviour and Lord of my life. Please take full control of me and help me to be the kind of Christian You want me to be. Amen.

If you prayed this prayer in all sincerity, please write to us or e-mail us so that we can rejoice with you in your new walk with God. We also have some items that we would like to send you free of charge to help you grow in grace and knowledge.len Email: office@acts2618.com

Thoughts On Trust

There is no situation I can get into that God cannot get me out.
Trust Him when dark doubts assail thee,

Trust Him when thy strength is small,

Trust Him when to simply trust Him

Seems the hardest thing of all.

Trust Him, He is ever faithful,

Trust Him, for his will is best,

Trust Him, for the heart of Jesus

Is the only place of rest.

“Duties are ours, events are God’s; When our faith goes to meddle with events, and to hold account upon God’s Providence, and beginneth to say, ‘How wilt Thou do this or that?’ we lose ground; we have nothing to do there; it is our part to let the Almighty exercise His own office, and steer His own helm; there is nothing left for us, but to see how we may be approved of Him, and how we roll the weight of our weak souls upon Him who is God omnipotent, and when we thus essay miscarrieth, it shall be neither our sin nor our cross.” (Samuel Rutherford)

In this world, we are in reality blind about what course to take. We must rely solely on the Word of the only One who is truly sighted–God Himself. His Word gives us the direction we need to finish the course.

Sunday Update For Ministry Family 4-19-2020

Sunday Update For Ministry Family 4-19-2020
Hello Ministry Family,
Angie and I greet You all in the Name Of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We are doing well and pray indeed that all of you are also!
During this extended time of isolation the Lord has been doing wonderful things in our hearts and has also opened up brand new avenues for Ministry Outreach for us. New plans, new direction, new roads to travel all by His Almight yHand and Providence… The Holy Spirit has whispered to me that I am entering an important season of my Ministry.

I (Len), will be sharing much about this in the future by Gods Grace and help.
This morning I am living with the joy of the Lord Jesus in my heart! I know that He’s got my back!! I have cast the care of my life on Him because He cares for me! The Lord has set His love upon me!

I want to say a big thanks to all who have responded with sending in their emails requesting to stay in contact with us for the next leg of our spiritual journey together. As many of you know by now that we are weening the true supporters and loved ones from FB to our websites other than social media. This connect site, our You Tube, And also our podcast are the places we want to really connect with people going forward. Their is way too much false love expressed on social media from those who prove by their actions and the lack thereof everyday that they do not care about anyones vision but their own..
The Love of God will chase our fears away! The Bible says that Perfect Love casts out fear! (1John 4:18a) Today, let your love grow!! You can trust The Lord!
As I stated in our last update, “Protect the Anointing: Don’t take everybody for a friend. If you can’t share your vision, use your gift, acknowledge the accomplishment, etc; the only reason they want to talk to you is to know your business, then they are not a good friend for you!! Protect the Anointing!!!” And thats really proven out to be a word from the Lord..

Its time to go forth into the new, with solid friends and supporters because what God is about to do in the earth and with our Ministry is going to be truly amazing.. So very exciting indeed!! So please be on the lookout for new updates and announcements coming in the not to distant future..

Here are some nuggets through these times..:

Thank You to all who have been listening to all the extra recordings posted on the podcast and all who have been giving to the Bible restock efforts.. We now have enough funds for 1500 Bibles to go in to prisons and homeless shelters. We will be making a trip to one of the shelters we support in San Diego CA as soon as we are able and will personally deliver those and other Christian Lit. .. Here is a little of what God has had on my heart today: The essence of the Gospel is a changed life that comes from a Christ transformed heart.. ( 2 Cor. 5:17). From that heart will flow faith, obedience, holiness, love, joy, prayer, etc… All the elements necessary to maintain our growing relationship with God. Supplied and equipped by His Spirit we reach out to all the potential He has for us.. God bless you all..

I will still be posting a few times each month though not going out to all pages every time. Will do best to keep up with everyone coming on over time. We are developing a new secure site where a lot of new ministry pics will be posted going forward and locked so they can’t be infringed. Angie and I will be sending out these links as they develop privately through email. If you wish to be on these new sites it’s important that you email me at office@acts2618.com. It’s going to be an awesome new season in our lives and as of now we have 143 emails of those who wish to continue taking the journey with us. Send me an email and we will get it done!! (Addendum: Email supporters now up to 216 as of todays date. Glory To God!)

I want to assure you that no matter where you are tonight, God has got you in the palm of His Hand. His Hand is big enough to hold us all!! Here is what God says in Is 41:10 NKJV “Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
No Virus, Disease, Money Problem, Neighbor, Lack, Pestilence, etc… NOTHING can rip you out of His Hand!
In Romans 8: 37-39 We Read This, “37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” No matter where you are or what you go through, You will never lose His Love Child Of God. Trust God, Fear Not, God has still got this!!
Again, Thanks for tuning in tonight. God bless you and yours and remember, we will come out on the other side of this!! Victorious and stronger in Jesus than ever…..

You know ‘those people’ who can’t just say amen to the preaching; they also have to add their great wisdom.. as if they already knew everything…. God deliver your church from self seeking, self appointed leaders’ !!!

I would rather be an attention grabber that an attention seeker. The latter comes from a sense of shame and inferiority while the former is from time in Gods Presence and a humble heart..

There are those who will contribute to the journey you are on in Christ and then there are those who will compete with you in your journey. You must choose your friends wisely in these last days. Amen!

It’s truly difficult these days to find folks who know how important it is to respect the senior ministry in a family, community, or any place for that matter. But Gods works through that respect. I predict much judgement is coming to the House Of God!

Let the people who brag about themselves while tearing you down to make you look small keep bragging about themselves. God will raise up other people to brag about you. Never brag about yourself- let others compliment you and God will take care of your detractors!!!

So there you have it for this update. Stay tuned for the next one very soon.. We love you ministry family.. God bless you all..
Len

Happy Passion Week Everybody

9B3203A7-3176-440F-8D1C-39E483D2E410

Angie and I want to wish you all a very Happy Passion Week and Resurrection Day coming up on Sunday… Also want to thank everyone who has been helping with restocking and shipping give away Bibles! Absolutely Can’t wait to get back out there on the road and hopefully meet up with many of you during the second half of this year…Here Is What God has put on my heart this morning; Many who have stood through great trouble and conquered, later found themselves defeated because of sloppy spiritual conduct in times of seeming peace. Our confidence can never rest in the accomplishments or achievements of the past, but only in our continual place in the presence of God. Be sure to maintain an intimate relationship with the Lord daily. God bless you friends!!

I Choose To Live In Peace

focused heart devotions and Nuggets

Dear Friends,
We have finally kicked off the fall season of ministry…. Yes, I know that technically its still summer, but I run my fall season as Sept. thru Nov…..

As we head out for a busy time on the road I want to leave you with some powerful thoughts on Peace….

First of all, as believers we need to realize that God is not mad at us.. In Romans 5:1 it says this ““Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”
We have Peace with God and need to learn to walk in the Peace of God….

When you need peace, God promises to provide a peace that passes understanding. The best thing you can do when you are filled with anxiety and worry is to find a quiet place to pray, read Scripture, and listen to encouraging worship music. God wants…

The Saviors Song

A poem I wrote in Feb. 2020

You are not the only one to ever drink a cup of sorrow.
You are not the only one that has ever been done wrong.
The more you focus on those wounds.
The Less you hear the Saviors Song.

The Saviors Song is forgiveness.
The Saviors song is victory.
The Saviors song is Turn the Other cheek.
Not everyone will sing that melody.

Jesus taught us to deny ourself
Its the hardest thing to do.
If we want Him to really use our lives
then we must follow through.

The way is made plain
Christ followers can see
The Spirits power transforms us— You and Me
into the image of our Risen Savior slain.

Win The Lost (telling Others)

A Poem I Wrote On Feb.17 2020

The Burden of the Lord Came to me
As I gazed upon the Cross
I must tell the others
So that they may not be lost.

Even if they turn on me in rage
Push me down, Cut me off
or put me in a cage.

They can call me names and abuse me
unfairly and unjust
But letting them perish is not an option
Telling them Gods Holy Truth a must.

Friend there is no time to waste
We must move forward with all Faith and Haste.
Be a Herald of Gods Love
Jesus sends His Power from above.
Power to be His Witness
Telling others of His Holy saving Grace.

Victory Won

A Poem I wrote January 2020

I fought hard to keep my life on track
Valiant effort —– Serious Lack.
My Heart divided
burdened and one sided.
I needed to learn to let it all go:
giving it over
to the God Who loved me so.

The path can be dark to natural eyes
View from eternity and walk with the wise.
Be certain that each step of the way
The Lord always gives us strength for our day.
The Fight is over
The War for my soul is done
Calvary’s Cross—– Enemy Defeated! Victory Won!

Anne Graham Lotz – Jesus In Me: Her New Book

Penniless Promoters

JESUS IN ME: Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion – I got my book early and was so glad I did.

In this day of depression, confusion, & ungodly influences we need hope. Anne Graham Lotz has shared her personal experiences and has shown where that hope comes from. She shares how she received strength, hope, love, & guidance through the Person of the Holy Spirit.

She shows that a daily walk and personal relationship with Jesus helps us to develop and maintain our faith. Our first step is to receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Then allowing the Holy Spirit to come along side us to be our helper.

God has used Anne through this book to show that there is hope and that once you make that commitment to Christ you will not be left alone.

John 14:26-27New International Version (NIV)
