I have heard the sad news…you have cancer. Can we say that cancer has you? Perhaps that is more accurate.
Doctors and others say that cancer is not a curable disease. Oh yes, there is radiation and chemo therapy and operations, but no one can remove it.
i am sure that you woke up that first morning after the diagnosis and thought that nothing had changed and yet everything changed. Now you had to deal with the new normal.
The world’s way of dealing with disease is to embrace the “fact” that you have cancer. You must now adjust your thinking to accommodate it. You must acclimate your life around treatment; you must fight it at the same time as you accept it.
There is a better way. God’s way.
I am no expert in dealing with disease because I don’t accept that it has a legal right to come on me. I chose God’s way of doing and being right a long time ago. And, I know the Truth and have been set free from everything that the Son of God, the son of man, came here to earth to do. The Bible says that His assignment from God was to “destroy the works of the devil, the accuser.”
The works, the fruit of the devil, aka satan, are these: sickness, disease, pain, sorrow, grief, weakness, doubt, and fear, to name a few.
if even one of these fruits is in your life, you give the enemy of God a place to get you under his control. His goal is your death. He hates you because man was ”created in God’s image and likeness.” and he hates God.
You disbelieve this to your peril. And…whether you believe it or don’t believe it, it does not change the truth, There is a God in Heaven and a place has been prepared to receive you at the appointed time. There is a place in Hell that has been prepared for the devil and his spirits; God never intended for people to go there.
God never sends anyone to Hell, it is a person’s own decision. God gave man the ability to choose the way his life takes, and that choice is made during life on planet earth. After death, a man will go to the place he has chosen.
I have heard people joke about Hell saying they are going to join their friends there and have a party. There will be a party alright, but you will be the entree!
God has allowed people to go to Heaven and HelL. They have been sent back to tell what it is like and to warn people. The internet has many testimonies of these visits. You would be wise to check it out. God never leaves anyone without a witness.
It is time to prepare for eternity, God made a way for you to come to Heaven when you die. The only way is through the cross, the finished “work” Jesus did there. Jesus is the bridge.
it is written: ”for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” “ The wages of sin is death.”
No human being can say he has never sinned. It’s perspective. God is the judge, not man. Sin had to be paid for in God’s court. God made a way for that to happen. He came Himself, His earthly name is Yeshua of Nazareth, we call him Jesus. He is the way, the truth and the life. “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us,”
His birth, His earthly life and His sacrificial death for mankind has affected the world in ways no other life has. It is all written in the book called the Bible, in the New Testament. Whoever believes it and receives it, will be changed.
“If you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, you will be saved.” There is no salvation without repentance. You must choose Jesus, confess that you rejected God and His way and ask for forgiveness. God accepts you and you become a new creation, your spirit is “born-again”. That is just the beginning of real life. You enter a process where you allow God’s Spirit to lead you and teach you about the ways of God.
Your soul (your mind, your will, your emotions) must be taken to God’s Word, the Bible, in order to learn God’s right way of doing and being. God’s Holy Spirit wrote the Bible, He will interpret it for you. You will learn how to live here on earth and you will be being prepared for Heaven.
The alternative is living on earth, living for yourself, spending your time here on foolish things that have no eternal value and when the end comes, when you leave your body on earth where it belongs, you realize that what I am telling you now is the truth….only then it will be too late. You will descend into Hell where you will face torment forever with no reprieve if any kind. It will have been your decision.
No decision to follow Jesus is a decision. The end of that decision is Hell, eternal death.
Now is the time to choose. Will you?
I love you Dale.
