|THE SPIRIT OF GOD PROCLAIMS:
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)
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)
The thief (satan) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
|WHOM DO YOU CHOOSE? HOW HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING YOUR LIFE?|
|Your whole life consists of one little dash on your tombstone between your birth date and the date of your death. What are you doing with your dash? Have you given it to the Lord? Are you living for Him? If not, it’s not too late to change even if you’re old and have only a small portion of your dash left. Just give it to the Lord, repent of your sins, ask Him to forgive you and live the rest of your dash for Him. He will forgive you and invite you into His Kingdom.|
|REMEMBER THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD…. AND YOU’RE NOT HIM!
Since God created us…He makes the rules!
