IMPORTANT RECALL NOTICE…

Romans 6:23a “For the wages of sin is death…”

Important Recall Notice!

The Maker of all human beings is recalling all
units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to
the serious defect in the primary and central component
of the heart.

This is due to a malfunction in the original
prototype unit’s code named Adam and Eve, resulting in
the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units.

This defect has been technically termed,
‘Sub sequential Internal Non-Morality,’ or more commonly
known as S-I-N, as it is primarily symptomized by loss
of moral judgment. Some other symptoms:

(a) Loss of direction
(b) Foul vocal emissions
(c) Amnesia of origin
(d) Lack of peace and joy
(e) Selfish, or violent, behavior
(f) Depression or confusion in the mental component
(g) Fearful
(h) Idolatry

The manufacturer, who is neither liable or at fault
for this defect, providing factory authorized repair
and service, free of charge to correct this SIN defect.

The number to call for the recall station in your
area is: P-R-A-Y-E-R. Once connected, please upload your
burden of SIN by pressing A-C-C-E-P-T  J-E-S-U-S A-S S-A-V-I-O-R.

That will download J-E-S-U-S into your life.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, the
JESUS repair will replace it with:

(a) Love
(b) Joy
(c) Peace
(d) Longsuffering
(e) Gentleness
(f) Goodness
(g) Faith
(h) Meekness
(i) Temperance

Please see operating manual, HOLY BIBLE, for
further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING:

Continuing to operate the human unit without
correction, voids the manufacturer’s warranty,
exposing owner to dangers and problems too numerous to
list and will result in the human unit being permanently
impounded. For free emergency service, call on J-E-S-U-S.

DANGER:

The human units not acknowledging and accepting this recall action will have to be scraped in the furnace.  The SIN defect must not enter heaven or else heaven will be infected.

Authorized by: The Creator.

I John 1:9 “If we confess our sins He is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

And, the rewards are out of this world……….

Humor and the Atheist…

Gen 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…”

Humor and the Atheist…

An atheist was taking a walk through the woods, admiring all that the “accident of evolution” had created.

What majestic trees!

What powerful rivers!

What beautiful animals!” he said to himself.

As he walked alongside the river he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. As he turned to look, he saw a 7-foot grizzly charge towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw the bear closing in on him. He tried to run even faster, so scared that tears were coming to his eyes. He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer. His heart was pumping frantically as he tried to run even faster, but he tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up and saw the bear right on top of him raising his paw to kill him.

At that instant he cried out “God, please help!”

Just then, time stopped… The bear froze; the forest was silent; the river even stopped moving.  A bright light shone upon the man, and a voice came out of the sky saying…

 

“You deny my existence all of these years; teach others I don’t exist; even credit my creation to a cosmic accident, and now do you desire me to help you out of this predicament?

Am I to count you as a believer?”

 

The atheist, ever so proud, looked into the light and said… “It would be rather hypocritical to ask to be a Christian after all these years, but could you make the bear a Christian?”
“Very well,” said the voice.

 

As the light went out, the river ran, and the sounds of the forest continued, the bear put his paw down. The bear then brought both paws together… bowed his head and said… “Lord, I thank you for this food, which I am about to receive.”

 

Yes, we all know that animals are neither believers or unbelievers but for the

sake of some good humor it works.

 

An interesting truth is that inside of us all is a yearning for God. The atheist is just more open about his rebellion. Most attend a church but never serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!!

The question to ask is, where do I stand???

 

Mat 16:13-16 “When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Rev 20:15 “And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”

 

Gen 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…” 


Gen 2:7 “And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made”

A Quiz. Can you name them…

Luke 23:46 “And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice,
He said, ‘Father, into Your hands I commend My spirit’.”

A Quiz. Can you name them…

Here’s something to think about.

Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

Name the last three Heisman trophy winners.

Name the last five winners of the Miss America contest.

Name five people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer prize.

Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.
These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields.
But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten.
Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

*************

Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Name half a dozen heroes whose stories have inspired you.

Easier?

The lesson?

The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most
credentials, the most money, or the most awards.
They are the ones that care. 🙂

There is One who paid for your unworthiness because of your sins with His life and created the words, I Love You this much!!!! Can you name Him!

Luke 23:46 “And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice,
He said, ‘Father, into Your hands I commend My spirit’.”

John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down one’s
life for his friends.”

My Number One Priority today is…

My Number One Priority today is…

So, if I were to ask you what is your main priority or focus today what would you say? Knowingly or unknowingly each day we all present ourselves to serve something or someone. Our priorities for the day are shown by our actions which represent our inner thoughts and priorities. The old saying that actions speak louder than words is very true.

Take a minute to look back at your actions and ask yourself. What or Who is number one in my life yesterday or for the past year? What was your focus or your priorities? Many of those priorities are good but cannot be your number one priority.

 “Mat 6:31-33 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Have you ever presented yourself as a servant to the King of Kings??

You must first know Jesus as your personal Savior to do so…

Eph 2:8,9 “For by grace you have been saved  through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone would boast.”

then He wants you to…

Rom 12:1,2 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you PRESENT YOUR BODIES A LIVING SACRIFICE, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world, but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.”

Do you remember when you said, Lord I want to do what you what me to do? You can be saved and on the side lines or not serving. He wants us to serve Him. If you are ready to start then the following steps will help you to do so.

Luke 9:23=25 “Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily,[a] and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?”

Go for it, Jesus awaits our move….!

The Children’s Bible in a Nutshell…

Psalm 98:4 “Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth; break forth and sing for joy and sing praises.”

A child was asked to write a book report on the entire Bible. Here is what he wrote:
​ ​
The Children’s Bible in a Nutshell

“In the beginning, which occurred near the start, there was nothing but God, darkness, and some gas. The Bible says, “The Lord thy God is one,” but I think He must be a lot older than that. Anyway, God said, “Give me a light!” and someone did.
​ ​
Then God made the world.  He split the Adam and made Eve. Adam and Eve were naked, but they weren’t embarrassed because mirrors hadn’t been invented yet. Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating one bad apple, so they were driven from the Garden of Eden … Not sure what they were driven in though, because they didn’t have cars.

Adam and Eve had a son, Cain, who hated his brother as long as he was Abel. Pretty soon all of the early people died off, except for Methuselah, who lived to be like a million or something.

One of the next important people was Noah, who was a good guy, but one of his kids was kind of a Ham. Noah built a large boat and put his family and some animals on it. He asked some other people to join him, but they said they would have to take a rain check. After Noah came Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jacob was more famous than his brother, Esau, because Esau sold Jacob his birthmark in exchange for some pot roast.  Jacob had a son named Joseph who wore a really loud sports coat.

Another important Bible guy is Moses, whose real name was Charlton Hesston. Moses led the Israel Lights out of Egypt and away from the evil Pharaoh after God sent ten plagues on Pharaoh’s people. These plagues included frogs, mice, lice, bowels, and no cable. God fed the Israel Lights every day with manicotti. Then he gave them His Top Ten Commandments. These include: don’t lie, cheat, smoke, dance, or covet your neighbor’s stuff.  Oh, yeah, I just thought of one more: Humor thy father and thy mother. One of Moses’ best helpers was Joshua who was the first Bible guy to use spies.  Joshua fought the battle of Geritol and the fence fell over on the town.

After Joshua came David. He got to be king by killing a giant with a slingshot. He had a son named Solomon who had about 300 wives and 500 porcupines. My teacher says he was wise, but that doesn’t sound very wise to me. After Solomon there were a bunch of major league prophets. One of these was Jonah, who was swallowed by a big whale and then barfed up on the shore. There were also some minor league prophets, but I guess we don’t have to worry about them.

After the Old Testament came the New Testament. Jesus is the star of The New Testament. He was born in Bethlehem in a barn. (I wish I had been born in a barn too, because my mom is always saying to me, “Close the door! Were you born in a barn?” It would be nice to say, ”As a matter of fact, I was.”) During His life, Jesus had many arguments with sinners like the Pharisees and the Democrats. Jesus also had twelve opossums. The worst one was Judas Asparagus.  Judas was so evil that they named a terrible vegetable after him.

Jesus was a great man. He healed many leopards and even preached to some Germans on the Mount. But the Democrats and all those guys put Jesus on trial before Pontius the Pilot. Pilot didn’t stick up for Jesus. He just washed his hands instead. Anyways, Jesus died for our sins, and then came back to life again. He went up to Heaven but will be back at the end of the Aluminum. His return is foretold in the book of Revolution.”

Job 8:21 “He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouting.”
