734399_431886196897621_1694844016_nToday I ask myself? should my faith and my love for my Savior who died on a cross for my sins be measured by whether I like your photo, slogan or post on Social Media. Each Day each of us including myself, generate devotionals, e-mails, text messages, chain-letter, Conference calls, etc, etc,.

The world is now flooded with a click and share mentality towards Salvation. Believe me God cares about every aspect of our lives. Psalm 139:13-16 “says For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;…. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.

When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” As A Child of God I believe that Facebook, Twitter or the SOCIAL MEDIA is not A primary area of my Lord and Masters concern.

Not as long as we have the poor, hungry, imprisoned, widowed, orphaned, and a immoral world that has lost sight of the saving grace of His love. I really do Love Jesus more then life itself. So I ask myself, in creating A click and share, if you love Jesus, or a Chain-letter, would that really allow A fallen world that desperately needs the transforming power of God’s Spirit to know Him.

Or does it just allow me to have a hands off approach to Christ Mandate to me when He said “go into all the world and preach the gospel. My thoughts are, anything less, would Cheapen that command. “According to the first chapter of Acts, 120 believers met in the upper room on the day of Pentecost. This is a ratio of 1 Christian to approximately every 500,000 to 580,000 people in the empire.

From a human standpoint, Jesus’ command to preach the gospel to the world seemed unthinkable. The Christian church exploded in growth. Tens of thousands were converted. The message of Jesus’ love was carried to the remotest parts of the empire. It reveals that in a few generations Christianity had invaded nearly every level of society even in the remote provinces. “(Mark Finley)

And this was actually done without facebook. Millions died so a world could receive the good news of Christ Salvation Persecution of the Christians started with the Emperor Nero in the summer AD 64. At that time Christians were a small underground group among the slaves and poor people, making them the perfect scapegoat. Nero blamed the fire of Rome on them, and ordered all Christians to be persecuted.

Christians were thrown to wild beasts and eaten alive in arenas throughout the empire, others were crucified. The more they killed the more the church grew. So Satan laid his plans to war more successfully against the government of God by planting his banner in the Christian church. The great adversary now endeavored to gain by artifice what he had failed to secure by force.

Persecution ceased, and in its stead were substituted the dangerous allurements of temporal prosperity and worldly honor. Idolaters were led to receive a imagespart of the Christian faith, while they rejected other essential truths. They professed to accept Jesus as the Son of God and to believe in His death and resurrection, but they had no conviction of sin and felt no need of repentance or of a change of heart.

With some concessions on their part they proposed that Christians should make concessions, that all might unite on the platform of belief in Christ. Most Christians consented to lower their standard, A union was then formed between Christianity and paganism. But thank God many Christians chose to die before they would deny their Lord. Those who did so came to be called MARTYRS, which means “WITNESSES.”

Millions Died who became WITNESSES for our Savior as they allowed their focal point to be centered on the life of Christ’s and Him Crucified, and what He must have endured on The Via Dolorosa, the road Jesus walked from the place of Pontius Pilate’s sentencing, to Golgotha, The “way of sorrows.” So today I ask myself how can I allow Christ through His word and Spirit to give me this same power to endure like Christ Did on Calvary, And the Christian Martyr’s before me.

Matt. 24:9-14 says For……….Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

That verse did not say all I would have to do is Click and share, or pass on A chain letter on to the next person, to show my love for Christ. It told me I will have to endure something that I know deep down in my heart I am really not prepared for right now.  So How do I prepare myself and others to Finish this race and endure until the end.

walk-by-faith-the-strait-and-narrow-pathJohn 16:7-9 tells us “…It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment. That will be my power Acts 1:8 tells me also. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you….

Acts 2:17 also says “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”


A conviction Of Gods Spirit That is what it will take my friends, and that can only comes through the transforming power of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. My Friends the final Chapter of the Controversy between GOOD and EVIL Is being written Right now the climax will be at Jesus Christ Second Coming to take His faithful Children Home. .


As we spread this Good news, Our witnessing should bring conviction without Condemnation, meaning the love of Christ should be at the center of our witnessing as we ask ourselves today does my action and what I as a Christians am doing for Christ will it really lead to souls being Saved. if not, then I ask you today, Have faith, Study Gods Word Daily, Pray without ceassing For the outpouring of Gods Spirit in your life and Focus!!! Focus!!! Focus!!!
