The Battle Within

Wolves Wolf Winter Predators Zoo WildlifeA Native American elder told his grandson about two wolves who live in every heart. One is Evil — anger, jealousy, pride, and selfishness. The other is Good — joy, love, peace, and humility.

The grandson asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?” His grandfather replied, “The one you feed.”

While not exactly a biblical illustration, it makes an important point: There is a battle raging in the heart of the Christian. As the Apostle Paul said when writing to the Galatians:

“For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.” (Galatians 5:17)

Becoming a Christian does not mean that our struggles are over. We are forgiven and we are a child of God, but we still retain our sinful nature. We will battle our sin nature as long as we live here on earth. We are given the Holy Spirit to give us the power to overcome the desires of the flesh.

The more we feed the Spirit by faith in Christ. The more we are obedience and in prayer, Bible study, worship, and holy living, the weaker the flesh becomes. The closer our walk with the Lord becomes and the easier it is to say yes to the Spirit and no to the flesh.

However, when we feed the sinful nature, our walk with the Lord becomes weaker. Every time we give into the lusts of the flesh, we are saying no to the Spirit. The more often we say yes to the flesh, the easier it becomes. If we say yes too often, some things can become an addiction with devastating consequences. Satan will not miss an opportunity to drag us down.

But, when we say no to the sin nature, we become stronger. Saying no to the flesh just one time makes us stronger. The more we say no to sin, the stronger we become and the desire of the flesh become weaker. If we keep saying yes to the spirit and no to the flesh, we will win the battle.

Don’t be discouraged if you cannot escape the struggle within. Instead, feed the Spirit through prayer and worship. Deny the lust of the flesh. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, you can win the battle within. The Heavenly reward will be beyond what we can comprehend. (1 Corinthians 2:9)

Feed the good wolf in you!

Forgivness

Our forgiving others is absolutely crucial to our physical and spiritual health. We cannot have a healthy relationship with God if we are holding a grudge against another person. It doesn’t matter if we are right and feel that we are justified to be mad at someone. Jesus stated the second most important commandment after loving God is to love others.  
“Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:37-40)

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34)

There may be a few people in our lives that we love as much as ourselves, but without God’s help, it is impossible to love others as ourselves. As humans, we are very self-centered. For instance, when we look at a picture that we are in, don’t we look at ourselves first? Don’t we judge whether the picture is good or bad by how we look in it?

I’m just making a point here. Loving and forgiving others is not always easy. Sometimes it is impossible without God’s help. It may not be easy, but it is vital to our relationship with Christ.

The scriptures tell us that our forgiveness depends on our forgiving others. Continue reading

The Biblical Flood — Proof & Effects

Global flood stories have been documented in almost every region of the world. Ancient civilizations such as in (Europe, Africa, the Near East, China and Asia, North, Central and South America, Australia, the Pacific Islands) all have their stories of the great flood. Old world missionaries reported their amazement at finding remote tribes already possessing legends with tremendous similarities to the Bible’s account of the worldwide flood. Altogether there are over 500 Flood legends worldwide.Noah and The Great Flood Cover

These flood tales are often linked by common elements with the Biblical account, such as the warning of the coming flood, the construction of a boat, the storage of animals, the inclusion of family, the release of birds to determine if the flood waters had subsided. The overwhelming consistency of these flood legends from distant parts of the world indicates that they were derived from the same original event.

If you consider that nearly every part of the world has their version of the global flood and that most of the earth’s surface, even on the mountain tops are made up of sedimentary bedrock. Obviously, there was a worldwide flood regardless what the evolutionists claim.

This book provides proof of a Biblical worldwide flood and backs it up with geological data. The information in this book offers evidence of creation by an omnipotent God and a global flood as God’s judgment of a sinful world. It provides evidence as to what the earth was like before the flood. It was a world that after creation God had declared very good. Even after the fall of man, it was still paradise compared with the world we know today. The catastrophic effects of a worldwide flood changed this planet drastically.

 

The Awesome God Who Made the Universe Loves YOU!

 

universe2God loves you!
The God who created the world and everything in it. Loves you. He loves you so much that he sent his son to die a horrible death in order to make it possible for YOU to spend eternity with him.
Imagine the God of the universe who created all and knows all, loves you! To understand how great God’s love for you is, we need to understand how great our God is. Look around you at the natural world God created and yet what you see is just a shadow of the world he originally created for us. Because of the sin of man the original world was destroyed by the flood. However, the Bible tells that there is a day coming when God will create a new heaven here on earth. It will be even better than the garden of Eden was. It will be beyond our imagination!
In 1 Corinthians 2:9, we are told, “However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him”
Why is God doing this? Because he loves us! Continue reading

Living Free in Jesus

praising God

Because of God’s grace, we can stand before him, spotless and pure in his sight, regardless of our past.
We are all sinners. Because of our human carnal nature, it is impossible for any of us to live sin free.
“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8)
“…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)

There are many ways to sin. As humans, we tend to categorize them into different levels. Some are really bad, while other sins are very small. It just makes sense to us that some sins are not as bad as others. However, just like a single drop of raw sewage can contaminate an entire barrel of water, any sin in our lives will make us unfit for Heaven.      The disciples asked Jesus, “How then can any of us be saved?”
Jesus answered, “With man it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26-27)

This is where God’s grace and forgiveness come in. God said he would forgive our sins and remember them no more. (Hebrews 8:12 & 10:17) Continue reading

Noah and the Great Flood

Noah and The Great Flood Cover

The apostle Peter warned us that in the last days before the end times, there would be a new philosophy that would deny that there ever was a worldwide flood. They would deny that God created the world, the existence of God, and the coming end time judgment by fire. Today we see this taking place exactly as Peter had predicted. (2 Peter 3:3-1)

In this book, I offer proof of creation by an omnipotent God and a global flood as God’s judgment of a sinful world. It provides evidence as to what the earth was like before the flood. It was a world, that after creation God had declared very good. Even after the fall of man, it was still paradise compared with the world we know today. The effects of catastrophic worldwide flood changed this planet drastically.

I have brought together scientific evidence that there was a global flood, evidence of a created world, evidence that proves evolution is impossible and evidence that proves the world is not billions of years old.

I am not a scientist. However, I have brought together the findings of geologists, biologists, microbiologists, paleontologists, paleobotanists, astronomers, physicists, astrophysicists, biophysicists, geochronologists, biochemists and many other experts to prove that the Bible is 100% accurate.

Noah and the Great Flood

There has been a lot of claims in recent years that the Biblical flood was only a local flood. Geological evidence, however, proves it was a worldwide flood.

New scientific evidence proves the earth is less than 10,000 years old. Not 4.6 billion years as evolutionists claim.

There is a lot of evidence that has been suppressed or ignored that man, the mammals, and dinosaurs lived on the earth at the same time.

The Ark had the largest cubic volume of storage of any vessel until the oil supertankers came along.
