Only Jesus…

This young girl’s video really touched my heart because she sounds a lot like I was 40 some years ago. Very shy, and worried about what people thought, and turning to alcohol to lose, or loosen up, inhibitions. She was saved a whole lot quicker than I was and our salvation experiences were a bit different- other than sitting in church and just crying and not knowing why. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this one.

A Quest for Spiritual Enlightenment and Fulfillment

This man has an amazing story of how God worked through him before he was born again. The title calls it “Hilarious Memories, etc…” but it’s not so hilarious. There are certainly humorous moments in his story, though. This is very much worth the 45 minutes it takes to watch. He’s a good storyteller and has a wonderful testimony.

God’s Judgment

I was watching Bill Randles last night on YouTube, and he said something that totally captured my interest and attention.  In the video, which I will post below, he was talking about how depraved and  heinously sinful the world has become.  How nothing (sin) is hidden anymore. He also brought up the fact that the ‘covers are being pulled back’ to reveal all the sinful deeds that men (and women) have committed and are committing.  Specifically, all the allegations of sexual harassment, abuse, and rape coming out against Hollywood producers, politicians, talk show hosts, etc.

At this point, Mr. Randles said that what is going on in the world right now, all these perversions that are being revealed, the covers being ripped off, is a revelation from God. So that people won’t be surprised when judgment comes.

That idea just resonated with me for some reason.  I had never really thought about it, but it truly makes sense.  Judgment will surely come.  Like Jonah preaching to Nineveh and telling them that unless they repented then the Lord would surely bring judgment on them.  Of course, the first time they did repent, but we also know that the second time they were warned they didn’t repent, and Nineveh was destroyed.

So shall it be with America.  I’m not saying that I believe this nation will be destroyed before God actually pours his wrath out on the world, but if she is, it will be because she hasn’t repented.  In fact, the sins of this nation are only multiplying.  All one has to do to see if this is the case is to just turn on the TV.  Whether it be the news or just the garbage that passes for entertainment these days, it’s blatantly obvious that nothing has changed.  If anything, it has only gotten worse.

If that truly is the case, that God is “ripping off the covers” to reveal the sins of this nation, then He is doing it to show the people of this country why they are being, or going to be, judged.  If that is what is happening, then it would appear that it is only a short time before this country is judged.  Whether before or during the wrath remains to be seen.

I’m not stating this as fact.  Rather, it came as an idea upon watching Bill Randles’ video on YouTube, and I thought others might find it interesting if it’s something you haven’t already considered.  In any case, the video posted below is interesting, regardless of the content of this post.



A Glimpse Into The Afterlife

Often the question is asked, “How could a God of love permit such a place as hell to exist, let alone send people there?”

Asking a question like this reveals a lack of understanding of the love of God or the wickedness of sin. God’s love is a holy love, not a shallow sentiment. The Scriptures tell us that “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5 NKJV). Sin is rebellion against God, and the Bible says we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory (see Romans 3:23). God does not send people to hell; people send themselves there by refusing to heed God’s call and believe in his son. These are people who have made a deliberate choice to not believe.  —Greg Laurie
