  8. Dear Mary;
    You can rest in knowing you are never alone in the body of Christ.You have a lot going on and the following passage came to mind that our Lord has said when we are overwhelmed in this life.Come unto me,all ye that labour and are heavy laden,and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you,and learn of me;for I am meek and lowly in heart:and ye shall find rest unto your souls.For my yoke is easy,and my burden is light.(Matthew 11:28-30).
    Dear heavenly Father may your love give Mary the strength she needs to press on in this trying time of her life.May her family come to trust in you by the example of love and light they see in your servant Mary in Jesus name we pray Amen. God Bless you Mary.

  9. Please pray for my mother. She has so many health problems and needs a hip replacement. Two years ago, she almost died from septic shock and she has many complications from that. My 81 year old father will not accept my help and he is treating her terribly. She is a Christian and he is not.
    Please also pray for my dad to come to salvation. He used to go to church when I was a child and we all thought he was a Christian, but he is not. He is very hateful to all races but the whites and he thinks the Jews have ruined the world. He is mired down in his hate for others and he is also very hateful to my mother.
    I also ask that you pray for salvation for my husband, my oldest son, my brother who all have hard hearts and follow the way of the world. All of these men were raised in church but have chosen to follow the way of the world and their own selfish desires. My husband was emotionally abused and brainwashed by his mother all of his life until he married me when he was 27. He really needs much prayer as he is easily confused on matters of faith. My son is hard hearted and stubborn. He has biblical truth in his head, but not his heart and can be quite nasty. My brother went to college way back when and it changed him. He accepted Christ, but is a back slider. He now believes in evolution, watches terrible movies and drinks.

  11. I am a senior, single, female minister, serving on the mission field in the ME, where the spiritual warfare is VERY intense, & I have a very big assignment here concerning a Catholic priest & a prophetic word I was given over 26 years ago. If that word is fulfilled, it will affect not only the city & country, but also the one on the “other” side of The River, so much, much prayer is needed & greatly appreciated. I have great favor with the NON-Christians, & numerous opportunities to share with individuals or families that truly listen & ask many questions, but the “Christians” & Pastors of even the handful of evangelical churches are not open to truth or women, most living a life of compromise &/or religiousity, thinking they’re OK. I have one invitation to preach in a close country that I’m praying for the right time. I operate in all the gifts of the Holy Spirit & have been used greatly in the past, but the vicious attacks had gotten me down so badly it was very overwhelming, & thankfully am coming out of that now. I had a recent physical miracle when Father grew my leg out after the doctors messed up with hip replacement surgery I had, but need more healing in my body with much pain. I could go on with much but don’t want this to be too long. Thank you for your prayers & may you all be very blessed.

  14. I am in desperate need of a way to get dental care for my husband. There are no dental clinics or dentists in Jacksonville, Florida or in the surrounding area that offer free or low-cost care. David (my husband) had a quad bypass almost 5 years ago and tooth infections can go straight to the heart and can kill him. His top teeth (about 9) that are left MUST be pulled (poor genetics, not lack of dental care) and it’s getting worse by the week. Our only hope we had is gone. Prayer got us here so I know He will work it out for the good as He promises that in His Word (Romans 8:28) but I also know others praying helps also. I desperately need your prayers for Christ Jesus to pave the way to taking care of this. The Lord has done mighty works in him and while he’s more quiet about his salvation than I, as Jesus said, “ye shall know them by their fruits.” He is a believer and his life shows it. He’s a vet but the VA will not help him and that really, really saddens me. This is not a vanity issue, it’s medically necessary. Thank you all and love to all and peace in Christ Jesus.

We will pray for guidance, knowledge and wisdom, we will pray for God to meet your needs.

  25. Zack……. My Dear Soul there is no place for so much doubt, if you have repented and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as you Saviour we are told to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. (Philippians 2:12-15). You have a very good understanding that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. STOP! beating yourself up as this makes the enemy of your soul (satan) very happy when doubt overtakes a person. You are on the right road and will learn the more the more you meditate upon the word the more peace your soul will find!(Psalm 1:1-3). I understand we all grow up with habits taught us and learn the sinners prayer, but all God asks us to do is to sincerely repent and are sorry for a wrong action and move forward.
    To keep repeating (vain repetition) will not make us heard more, but do as God has asked us to do and go to a quiet place and he will hear you, even if you do not utter a single word for he does not see as man does, but he looks on our heart!(Matthew 6:5-13)………(1 Samuel 16:7). God Bless You and stay strong in the Lord.

  26. Hi iamnotashamedofthegospelofchrist,

    My name is Zack and I’m finally writing to you because I have always doubted my salvation and feared Hell and felt I haven’t lived the holy, righteous Christian life I was called to live and many of your points you say in your articles about the end times or prophecy or theology or Christian living and such really struck home with me. I always thought of myself as someone who put emphasis on the “fire insurance” policy and one of the reasons I always get so fearful and doubtful and repeat sinners prayers and try to rededicate my life to him again to make sure I get right with God and am saved is because I fear Hell. I feel like I’ve been more worried with not going to Hell and that is why I want to make sure I’m a Christian and I haven’t really lived the life I’ve been called to live. I feel like I became a Christian or thought I became a Christian mainly out of fear of Hell and I feel like if I’m truly saved why do I care so much about fire insurance and keep on repeating those sinner’s prayers and regiving and dedicating my life to Christ and accepting him as my Lord and Savior and believing in Jesus but not practicing what I preach. I fear Hell and feel like I’m not saved because I’m not bearing fruit or producing works with my faith.

    I am doubting and scared, are my bags really packed? I don’t want to be shocked, horrified and angry when the rapture happens and if God forbid, I am left behind. Being “Ready” for the rapture always sounded to me like a works based, must be clean and holy, super Christian at the time of the rapture, but if it truly just means, are you saved, are you born again, have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, I think and hope I did, but I fear and doubt even that! Please hear my cry for help and read my plea!

    PLEASE HELP! I have been a Christian (or at least I hope I am!) for many years, probably since early high school years ago and I am halfway through college now. I have pretty much always doubted my salvation, more so than could possibly be healthy, and I constantly fear of eternal damnation in Hell. I think I am a Christian, I hope I am. But eternal separation from God is eternal torment in the lake of fire for endless agony for eternity, so you’ll understand why I feel so scared. This will be a long plea for prayer and Wisdom so I apologize from the start.

    Obviously having some doubt of your salvation every once in a while isn’t the worse thing that could happen. One shouldn’t be prideful and arrogant or boast, we shouldn’t be so sure we’re saved that there’s no way I won’t go to heaven and I don’t need to examine my life and look at myself, because “I’m so great I know I’m going to Heaven, no need to examine myself at all!”. That’s the wrong attitude to have. A healthy fear of God is the beginning of all wisdom. The Bible says to put ourselves to the test and to examine our fruit and works to see if they match our profession and if we have and uphold the faith in Jesus Christ. Obviously those who pass the test wouldn’t be the Laodicean Church.

    That being said, I am still afraid of eternity should I turn out not to be a Christian. Many people, have said before that many will think they are in Christ and profess so as well but will be sorely disappointed when the rapture happens and they are left behind! I would hate to find out that the hard way when I could be raptured with Christ when he returns for his bridegroom the church instead!

    When I read these articles on this site or rapture ready or any other Christian website, and you all say how many think they are Christians but are not and will find out the hard way, I get SO SCARED!

    Here’s what I believe, or at least what I think I believe and hope I believe.

    I believe that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to salvation. I believe I am NOT a good person, and there are no good people save for Jesus. I believe that there are no righteous, not one, for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. All have sinned, and the wage for sin is death. I have sinned, I am unrighteous, unholy and unworthy of God. I am not good, and deserve to die. No amount of good works will ever save me. I will never be good enough to get into heaven myself. God’s standard of good is perfection, and I fail.

    I believe in one God of course, but even the demons in Hell believe in and fear one God. Going to church means nothing, many of those casual churchgoers will be left behind. It’s more than just “believing” in Jesus as that he was a good person and teacher, it’s about accepting him personally as your lord and savior.

    I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior (I hope I did and I keep telling myself that as I say the sinner’s prayer over and over again dozens of times a month). I believe that I was dead in my sins and trangressions and deserved eternal Hell and separation from God but in his mercy God sent his one and only begotten son to die for us so that we may have a relationship with him and not perish but have eternal life. By accepting Jesus Christ as your lord and savior, the blood of Christ covers your sin and makes you righteous and holy in God’s eyes, you are born again and a new creation.

    Romans 10:9 says: “That if you confess with your mouth ‘Jesus is Lord!’, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved!”

    That’s it, no works, no fruit, no baptism (thief on the cross), no last minute confessions before death, no going to church every week and filling the offering jar, no mandatory Bible readings or repeated rituals, nothing.

    Just accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, believing in your heart that God raised him from the dead and that God sent himself to die upon that cross so the calvary’s sacrifice would atone for the sins of mankind. I did not deserve this. In God’s grace and mercy, he provided a way to save a wretch like me so that I may have a relationship with him and not perish but have eternal life. I was unrighteous, unholy and unworthy, and still he bled for me. How someone can truly reject that is beyond me.

    THAT BEING SAID!!! I read things from many Godly and Christianlike people and leaders and teachers such as you, who say that some will be self deceived and think they are in Christ but are not. I DO NOT WANT TO BE SELF DECEIVED! What if I thought I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, but I did not? What if I didn’t really believe he rose from the dead and he is the lord and savior to us all? What if I believe or know that is true but didn’t personally accept him as my Lord and Savior myself? What if I am deceiving myself? Only God knows my heart, he said not to judge each other until we are judged before God himself.

    Not all who say to him, Lord Lord, will enter the kingdom of Heaven. They will say things like “did we not cast out demons and perform miracles in your name?” and he will say, “where were you when I was hungry and needed something to eat, when I was thirsty and needed some water to drink, when I was naked and needed clothing, depart from me, I never knew you.” The Bible says “Why do you call me Lord Lord, but not do what I do?”. Not all who say they belong to him will enter the kingdom of Heaven but those that do THE WILL of the father. The Bible says to put yourself to the test and you will know them by their fruit. And that faith without works is dead.

    So if I truly have saving faith in Christ, why do I not produce works and bare fruit of the Holy Spirit, and feel conviction of the Holy Spirit when I sin? Perhaps I feel conviction if I ever have felt guilty, but I can doubt even that! I am a Calvinist and so do not believe in free will in the broader and more liberal sense that some do. I do believe once saved always saved, which I believe many agree with. SO if salvation cannot be lost, which I believe to be the case, as it seems to be the most Biblical, then either I am saved and doubt or am not saved and was never saved to begin with.

    The seed that sprouted for a season but withered left the flock because they were never with them. No one will take you from the Lord’s hands once you are his. The Bible says all who call upon the name of the lord will be saved. But not only do I not feel saved (I know we can’t go off of feelings), but I feel like I don’t live it.

    If I am truly in Christ and believe what I say I believe, that Gospel and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and if I truly have accepted him as my Lord and Savior and repented of my sins and am born again a new creation, why do I feel I do not live it?

    With saving faith comes good works, they say? Why do I feel like I produce no good works and bare no fruit of the Holy Spirit? Have I truly received grace if I keep on sinning? Just because we received grace, is that a license to keep sinning now that we’ve been pardoned? NO, absolutely not Paul says! If I am in Christ, why do I keep sinning and not living a more holy and righteous life that he called me to live, and why have I not done more for the kingdom of God and produced such works as evidence of my faith? Even now, I feel as though my heart may be far from God, conspiring against him in all my sinful nature and evil wickedness.

    I pray that I am saved and that if I am not then I call upon the name of the Lord to save me! I want to be filled with the Holy Spirit and feel the conviction of him when I sin. I believe that without accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and have the blood and holy sacrifice of Jesus Christ to atone for your sins I may not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

    But did I truly ever personally accept him as my Lord and Savior if I haven’t completely changed my life and lived in repentance where the works and fruit are surely produced and the sinful lifestyle of my past has ended? Did I die to myself and pick up my cross and follow Jesus? Did I turn away from sin and decide to choose to whom this day I will serve and honor God and turn towards Christ and his sacrifice on the Cross instead?

    Surely God would not let me be self deceived as to think I am saved when I am not? I do not want to miss the rapture, or go to Hell! As a Calvinist, I feel that I must certainly be one of the elect, because of TULIP including Total Depravity. If I am not yet with him, is he calling me to him? I believe because of my sinful nature I cannot choose to break free of my sinful nature and realize my need for a savior and the errors of my previous lifestyle and being dead in my sins without the need for Christ’s death and resurrection on the cross unless God calls me to him and softens my heart and fills it with the message of the Holy Spirit.

    If I was not one of the elect, surely I would be dead in my sins and transgressions and not realize my need for a savior and choose to break free of my sinful nature and repent unless God himself called me to him and softened my heart and put something in it to make me realize I was missing something and empty and dead inside, and all the world had to offer me could not fill that God shaped hole in my heart.

    Would God truly let me be so self deceived? To have come so close to believing it, only to miss it. To seek him out and search for the truth, when the Bible says he is always knocking at the door to our heart and all the seek out and search for the Lord WILL FIND HIM!? Surely, O Lord, Father God, you would not allow me to believe I was in Christ and had accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and found salvation in Christ and was among the good shepherd’s flock, only to realize he was damned to Hell and completely wrong all his life the moment he died or left behind in the rapture to endure seven years of Tribulation and hope he accepts his only savior and way to Heaven for real this time? Or would he?

    SURELY an unbeliever who has not truly accepted Jesus as their Savior and Lord would not be as concerned about their relationship with God as I am…would they? First of all, I have asked Jesus to save me. He said in the Bible that he would never turn anyone down who comes to him. So I ask myself, “Is Jesus Christ a liar?” The answer, HELL NO! He has promised that once you are saved, you cannot be removed from his Father’s hand or his. Again, is Jesus Christ a liar? And again I say a resounding NO!

    Of course Jesus Christ is not a liar, he is a Holy and Righteous God incapable of lying, sin, unjustness, unholiness or unrighteousness and he is The Way, The Truth, and The Life and no one gets to the father but through him (John 14:6).

    I just want to know I am saved and have reassurance of my salvation again and that I am going to Heaven, and not have fear of Hell consume me, but only if it is true. I don’t want false assurance. I don’t want to believe a lie is true that I am saved if I am not. If I am not saved I hope I get saved and God helps me to know it and truly accept Christ as my lord and savior. I would want to get saved and then know it but not believe a lie that I am only to wind up in Hell for eternity too late with no second chances.

    But if I am saved for real and truly sure, I would want God to give me reassurance of my salvation again once and for all so I could put aside all fear and doubt and rest assured I was saved and be at peace. But I would NEED TO KNOW for certain that this assurance of salvation and peace and calm of God was just that, and truly of God. That it was really the Holy Spirit that was reassuring me and not the false deceptive lies of Satan. I would rather be saved and have my enemy the devil make me believe lies to doubt it and end up in Heaven with a miserable fearful life on Earth before that then believe a lie from Satan and have a peaceful and reassuring life on Earth only to end up in Hell for eternity because I had false assurance and was self or satanically deceived.

    When you guys say many will proclaim and truly think and believe they are Christians only to be left behind and/or die and burn in Hell, I get SCARED! I just want to be truly saved in Christ and forgiven for my sins and be raptured with the rest of the bride and be in paradise and in Heaven with Jesus for eternity and I want to know I am going there when I die!

    I am truly sorry for taking up so much of your time, I know this is a long question and apologize again in advance if this bothers you, but with all due respect, this is my ETERNAL SALVATION on the line, and well, I believe it’s important for me!

    Please pray for me and please offer me any advice you have on dispelling doubt of my salvation and having reassurance and knowing I am saved and getting right with God if I am not but if I am in Christ help me know it and stop believing a lie from Satan the enemy and living my life in fear! Help me stop being a slave to sin but free in Christ! Jesus is Lord!

    Thank you and Amen!

    Your Brother in Christ (who hopes to soon stop doubting that part!)

    • Hello Zack. I will keep you in my prayers. I was raised Free Will Baptist, so I have those teachings deep within. That said, I follow no man, I learned a few years ago when I came back to God that He will guide us into His truth, you should pray for the Holy Spirit’s guidance and open your Bible and He will guide you into understanding. Your right the Bible say’s there is none righteous no not one, all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. The fact that you are questioning and fearing God show’s that you are listening to the Holy Spirit while he convicts and leads you to the truth. It’s easy to get lost in man’s interpretation of scripture. God’s word is not confusing, it’s not meant to confuse us, or mislead us. When you accept Jesus as Lord, and let Him have control of your life, even your very thoughts change. I am constantly praying the Lord’s Prayer. It covers everything. This is the way Jesus said for us to pray. It covers forgiveness of our sins as well as us forgiving others. It covers temptation, and evil, and our deliverance from evil and satan. It asks for us to receive daily bread which I believe means a daily dose of Jesus. As Jesus said “I am the bread.” You most certainly can have certainty in the promise of Jesus when He said He will never leave us nor forsake us. I do believe in Baptism, I believe in communion of the Saints. Satan is very good at putting doubts into our minds. He’s very good at it, as he told Eve the same lie in the Garden of Eden. He is very clever. Anything negative comes from Him. When you feel conviction at times this is God’s way of pointing out sin in your life. Ask God to guide you, he will. It’s not a bolt of lightening from the sky, but a gradual change when you stay in the word, and prayer it changes you, subtly at first, but then more noticeable as time goes on. The things of the world seem less important, and your focus is changed to heavenly things. Just as scripture tells us. I can’t speak for the other sites, but I see a great falling away from God’s true word and conforming to the world and sin rather than conforming to Christ. Those Christians are the ones spoken of in Revelation. Revelation tells us who is destined for suffering and an eternity without God. Revelation 21: 7-8 “He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. 8″But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” I also do not hold to a secret rapture theory, and I don’t wish to debate that with anyone. Scripture just doesn’t support this idea of a secret second coming of Christ. Jesus said: AND THE STARS WILL BE FALLING from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken. 26″Then they will see THE SON OF MAN COMING IN CLOUDS with great power and glory. 27″And then He will send forth the angels, and will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest end of the earth to the farthest end of heaven.(Mark 13) Yes we will be gathered together and meet Him in the air, but when He comes every eye shall see Him, and every knee shall bow. That’s about all I have to say about that. I don’t debate this, God’s word speaks for itself. Again, if you believe that you are once saved always saved, then you must feel deep down that, that isn’t true. Of which again, I believe we can indeed make a shipwreck of our Faith. If we continuously turn from God, turn from the Holy Spirit, turn from Jesus and sin even though we know it’s sin, than yes we can be deceived into thinking that we are safe in our sins. And that simply isn’t true. I am not holier than thou, like Paul I was one of the worst sinners, but through God’s grace he has saved me. And I will serve Him till my dying day. I will keep you in my prayers. And yes, you are a brother in Christ, and I will pray for knowledge, wisdom and guidance for us all, and for God to give you peace and a renewed spirit. Many Blessings, in Christ.

    • Fear is the beginning of wisdom, love is the end of it.
      See Job 28:28

      And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

      Note that the fear comes before the departing. The departing part we find in 1 John 4:18

      There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

      Keeping working out your salvation daily. Maturity in Christ comes when you understand you are in the love of Christ.

      Love is keeping the commandments of God. Jesus said If you love me keep my commandments.
      If you are His you will not be able to continue in sin, you will grow in grace and will surrender bit by bit your flesh to his will.

      Understanding is what faith is.

      Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

      Substance is the word hupostasis hupo meaning under and stasis is a standing thus standing under something aka Christ, God, and also means understanding.

      Our standing is in Christ aka consider this in a court of law where you have standing.

      Keep growing in faith and love.

      Blessings

    • Karen, you are not alone. Many are experiencing the same thing. Including myself. I am laughed at, ridiculed and called crazy. It brings me closer to my Lord. Many are awakening to what’s coming. There are so many who won’t teach about the tribulation or the persecution of Christians because they say ‘It will scare people.’ They are more concerned about numbers in the pews. The love of Christ is important, but the way to salvation and how to survive the coming tribulation is more important. Many take the fear of God out of the pulpit. Jesus gave us the promise that He would never leave us or forsake us. He will bring us through. Stay strong, because when things fall apart, there will be a need for your testimony. Daniel tells us that in the end those who are wise will instruct many. With the chaos and confusion that’s coming God is calling His children to gain knowledge and strength so that we may be able to help and instruct those, who have fallen by the way. Jesus tells us we are the light of the world. When you earnestly seek God you will find Him, He will guide you through His word into truth. I will keep you in my prayers. Father, we ask for guidance, knowledge and wisdom for Karen, we ask for strength and courage, we ask that you open the eyes of her mother Milagros. We ask that you remove the scales from the eyes of those refusing to see your truth. Father wrap your arms around her, and give her encouragement, put a veil between her and those who wish to confuse. Let your light shine upon her so that she may be a living testimony to your word. We ask this in Jesus name. Amen.
