Okay, let's get to the point. You have been struggling for a long time. You don't see the way out. You need money. Or you need to get other problems solved. You are desperately looking for a way out of your problems. Did you consider that maybe - finally - you should take into account that there is one true God - the God of Israel? And that He can lead you to better grounds? Now read this very carefully:
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. (Acts 3:19)
Time to reconsider your ways... time to get clean with God... this is not about going to church dressed up nicely to impress others and show them that you are "correct"... actually, you can deceive men by doing that, but you can never deceive God:
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. (Galatians 6:7)
If you think that you can deceive God, you are just deceiving yourself! Now is the time to come before that one true God of Israel and reconcile with Him.
You must recognize that He is the one true God, the God of Israel. And that his son Jesus Christ was on earth 2,000 years ago and died on the cross. A roman soldier pierced his side and his blood was shed:
One of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. (John 19:34)
And why was Jesus' blood shed this way? It is because this God of Israel has established that sin can only be forgiven by shedding blood:
The law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood , and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness (Hebrews 9:22)
In the Old Testament times, when the jews had sinned they were required to bring an animal and offer the blood to the LORD:
4 He is to present the bull at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting before the LORD. He is to lay his hand on its head and slaughter it before the LORD.
5 Then the anointed priest shall take some of the bull's blood and carry it into the Tent of Meeting.
6 He is to dip his finger into the blood and sprinkle some of it seven times before the LORD, in front of the curtain of the sanctuary.
7 The priest shall then put some of the blood on the horns of the altar of fragrant incense that is before the LORD in the Tent of Meeting. The rest of the bull's blood he shall pour out at the base of the altar of burnt offering at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
Sounds weird to you all this talk about blood? The fact is that we have little knowledge about who this God of Israel really is! We are used to our high-tech world. In the dollar we trust! No, we really don't want to have anything at all to do with blood, less with shedding it!
Now here comes the goods news! We don't have to show up with our own animal like the Jews had to do ... All that God asks from us is that we believe that his son Jesus was on earth, that his blood was shed for our sins, and that he rose from the dead on the third day... and: step away from our "evil" ways. Then God will no longer look at your sins but rather at Jesus's blood shed on the cross!
When Jesus began to preach, he said:
Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near. (Matthew 4:17)
For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners. (Matthew 9:13)
Whoever comes to me I will never drive away.(John 6:37)
After Jesus died and was raised, the apostles talked like this:
Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38)
Save yourselves from this corrupt generation. (Acts 2:40)
We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
So I implore you: RECONCILE TO GOD NOW !
Let's make clear one thing: this is between you and God. I am just presenting you the message. You don't need to confess your life to me. Rather you should confess before Him that you have done many things that have offended Him, either unconciously or deliberately. And recognize that He is God. And recognize that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead. And call on Him to receive help to solve your problems.
Maybe you were a follower of Jesus before but for some reason you turned away from him. But you have found out that life without Jesus really is impossible:
Apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)
So reconcile to God now. Please repeat the following words, preferably saying it aloud:
FATHER IN HEAVEN, GOD OF ISRAEL,
TODAY AT LAST I DECIDE TO RECOGNIZE THAT YOU ARE FOR REAL AND THAT I NEED YOUR HELP.
YOU KNOW ALL THE THINGS THAT I HAVE DONE WITH WHICH I HAVE OFFENDED YOU.
PLEASE FORGIVE ME TODAY, FATHER.
TODAY I SAY TO YOU:
YES, I BELIEVE THAT JESUS WAS ON EARTH 2,000 YEARS AGO;
YES, I BELIEVE THAT HE DIED ON THE CROSS AND THAT HIS BLOOD WAS SHED;
YES, I BELIEVE THAT HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD.
I WANT TO STEP AWAY FROM DOING "EVIL" THINGS OR THINGS THAT OFFEND YOU.
I ASK YOUR HELP TO BREAK FREE FROM THE SINS IN WHICH I AM TRAPPED.
I ASK YOUR HELP TO GET MY PROBLEMS SOLVED.
I ASK YOU ETERNAL LIFE.
IN JESUS' NAME,
If you have prayed this prayer sincerely, maybe you sensed some strong emotion or maybe you sensed the presence of God's Holy Spirit coming upon you.
Now there is a lot for you to learn.
God expects that after you be reconciled to him you start a new life:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind ... Love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:37; 22:39)
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you. (Matthew 7:12)
Study the Scriptures diligently. (John 5:39)
Pray continually. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
Lay hold of the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 13:14)
Mind your own business and work with your hands. (1 Thessalonians 4:11)
Do not worry about your life ... do not worry about it. (Luke 12:22; 12:29)
Don't be afraid. (Matthew 14:27)
Do not judge, or you too will be judged. (Matthew 7:1)
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed ... you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other. (Colossians 3:5-9)
Let us not give up meeting together. (Hebrews 10:25)
You need to know as well that Jesus will come back again and that you need to prepare for this second coming:
He will appear a second time ... to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him (Hebrews 9:28)
So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. (Matthew 24:44)
God expects that you be “hot” in your deeds; he says he will spit the lukewarm out of his mouth (Revelation 3:15-16).
He also says:
He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son; but the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars--their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur; this is the second death (Revelation 21:7-8).
I also strongly urge you to read the Bible on your own behalf, first all of the New Testament and then all of the Old Testament. There really is a lot to learn.
And you really should gather with other christians. God will show you what church or what group is best for you.
It is my duty to show you the way, the truth and the life: it is the Lord Jesus Christ. This is a calling to live your life in agreement with the will of God. Believe in Jesus Christ and take this calling from God serious. What do you choose?
Man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment. (Hebrews 9:27)
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him . (John 3:36)
Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life. (Matthew 25:46)
He who has ears, let him hear, Jesus said.
