Good News

My name is Mike Peek, I have some good news for you; but before I give you the good news I have some bad news. No one likes to think about their death, but we all are headed for death, and in death, judgment before our Creator. The bible says, “And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment”. Are you ready to face God in judgment? God has given us a Holy set of scripts, His law by which we can judge ourselves to see our standing before God; before that impending Day of Judgment.

I have four questions to ask you:

1. Have you ever told a lie, even once?
2. Have ever stolen anything, regardless of its value, taken anything at all that didn’t belong to you without the owner’s permission?
3. Have you used God’s name in vain, used the names of God in place of a curse word or used His names without reverence?
4. What we are doing here is going through a few of God’s Ten Commandments; the 7th says do not commit adultery. In bringing light to this commandment Jesus said, “But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” Have you looked at another person with lust?

Now that is just four of God’s Holy Ten Commandments with another six to go; how are you doing? The bible says, “For whoever shall keep the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all”; you’re probably saying to yourself, “Everyone sins, who hasn’t broken these commandments?” And you would be right, but that doesn’t make it ok. I once thought the same way, because God is a loving God right, He will just forgive us of our sins, right? God is a loving God, and God is merciful; but God is also righteous, Holy, and a just judge. God hates sin and His law says that if you sin (break His law) you will die. “For the Lord will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.” The bible says that no thief, no adulterer shall enter the kingdom of God and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. To be cast out of the kingdom of God into the lake of fire and brimstone, that is hell my friend and that is what awaits everyone who has broken the laws of God.

God is love, and God is merciful, but before He could be merciful to sinful man God’s justice and righteousness had to be served. Sin had to be dealt with, His law says; if you sin, you die. Man sinned so a man has to die. So what did God do so that He could be both just and merciful? He became a Man, Jesus of Nazareth. He was fully Man, borne of the Virgin Mary; and He was fully God, conceived of by the Holy Spirit. He had to be fully Man, because man sinned, man had to die; He had to be fully God because, “Salvation is from the LORD.” He is the Son of God, He is the Son of Man; fully God and fully Man. He never sinned; He never broke one of God’s laws and was completely obedient to God the Father from birth to His death at the command of God the Father on the cross. He was the perfect offering for sin; God the Father poured His wrath out on Him as a Man for the sins of man, He died and was buried, then He rose again the third day from the grave proving who He was; the Son of God. Because He rose from the grave we know that sin has been dealt with, God’s wrath for sin has been satisfied, justice has been done, and He can now have mercy on man. God’s free gift is everlasting life to all who repent from their sins and put their faith alone in His only Son, Jesus Christ.

You and I are facing the physical death of our bodies and when that happens, you and I will face God in judgment, giving an account of everything we have thought, said, and done in this life. God’s law demands justice, someone broke His law, so someone has to die “and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” There is only one sacrifice that is acceptable to God the Father for Sin; the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ. I know when I come before the thrown of God I will be clinging to the Son of God and His sacrifice on the cross for the forgiveness of my sins; how about you? “Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no once comes to the Father but through Me.” All who repent of their sins and put their faith in Jesus Christ are forgiven; all who reject the Son of God remain in their sins and will die in their sins. Repent of your sins and put your faith in Jesus Christ alone and you will be saved.

The Three Aspects of Faith

Faith is made up of three things: knowledge, belief, and trust…Faith is believing that Christ is what He is said to be and that He will do what He has promised to do. (Spurgeon, C.H.) “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?. . So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:13-14, 17) When sharing the gospel publicly, and more specifically through open-air preaching you will likely be stopped from preaching by someone who claims to be a Christian.  Oftentimes when preaching in open-air, you will be preaching to a moving crowd.  Someone may walk by and hear you talking about sin and judgment.  Another may walk by and hear you talking about Christ redemptive work on the cross.  I use to think that there was the possibility that those who claimed to be Christian, who stopp

William George Davis, RN

Today I write with a broken heart an open-letter to my nursing colleague, friend and I hope, brother in Christ William Davis, RN. Will has been accused of murder and was arrested on April 11, 2018. I write this as an open-letter because this has become an open-matter. Will Davis and Family Copied from Facebook Dear Will, I miss your smiles and your jovial laughter on our nursing unit. I first meet you about 5 years ago in the spring of 2013. My wife met you before I did; I remember her telling me, “I met a guy in orientation who is going to work on your unit, he is so excited to work on your unit and is real fun.” From that time on you were usually laughing and all smiles. Often times you brought a bag of candy to work, because of this, and your jovial laughter I nicknamed you the Candyman and would even sing in your presences, “Who can make the sun rise and cover it with cheer…the Candyman can, the Candyman can because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.”

Come Follow Me

Mark 10 It was Jesus’ custom to teach when a crowd gathered. He taught that it is not God’s will that a wife and husband should separate, for he considers them one flesh. Later, his disciples questioned him about this and Jesus told them that to divorce and marry another is committing adultery. Jesus used the metaphor of how a child excepts as being the way we should except the kingdom of God. Jesus corrected a rich young man’s understanding of good and showed him that to repent and follow Jesus Christ is the only good that a man can do. It is impossible for people to enter the kingdom of God but with God all things are possible. Jesus promised eternal life to all who leave whatever is holding them back from following him. On the journey to Jerusalem, Jesus told his disciples about his coming arrest, trial, humiliation, suffering, death and resurrection three days later. James and John sought honor for themselves at Jesus right and left sides in his kingdom, but he told them, it is for
